Hollister Biosciences Inc. (CSE: HOLL) (OTC: HSTRF) (FRANKFURT: HOB) (the " Company ") announces that as a result of a review by the British Columbia Securities Commission, we are issuing the following press release to clarify our disclosure.

The unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements and interim MD&A of the Company for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 ("Q3 2020 Financial Statements and MD&A) have been amended and restated in order to correct for certain disclosure deficiencies on the following items as listed below. Details of the changes are fully described in Note 20 to the amended and restated unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 ("Amended Q3 2020 Financial Statements and MD&A") as filed on SEDAR on February 25, 2021 .

Acquisitions

The Amended Q3 2020 Financial Statements and MD&A have been restated and amended to disclose the circumstances that led to the incorrect accounting treatments for the acquisitions of Labtronix, Inc and AlphaMind Brands Inc., how and from when the errors have been corrected.

Change in accounting treatment for the acquisition of Labtronix, Inc.

The Company received the preliminary independent valuation report on the fair values of the net assets acquired. As a result, and as part of these amended condensed interim consolidated financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 , the Company is restating its purchase price allocation of the Venom Extracts acquisition (Note 4(a)). More specifically, the fair value of the consideration paid has been revised from $0.035 (C$0.05) per Payment Share and Earn-Out Share to $0.063 (C$0.092) per Payment Share and Earn-Out Share, resulting in total consideration increasing from $3,450,442 to $6,328,112 . The revised fair value is primarily driven by using the Company's one-month volume weighted average price to determine the consideration paid rather than the share price on the date of the acquisition, which was adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, as a result of the valuation report, the Company has recorded brand as an acquired intangible asset with a fair value of $1,149,552 and acquired intellectual property with a fair value of $1,451,062 . As a result of the increased fair value of consideration paid and additional intangible assets acquired, the fair value of acquired goodwill increased from $2,920,400 to $3,197,456

Change in accounting treatment for the acquisition of AlphaMind Brands Inc.

The Company determined that AlphaMind did not have any intangible assets (intellectual property) given the absence of proprietary formulations and other material intellectual property and accordingly revised its accounting treatment of the acquisition from an asset acquisition (as described above) to an acquisition expense. As a result of the change in accounting treatment from an asset acquisition to an acquisition expense, the excess consideration paid over net assets acquisition was recorded as an expense in the unaudited consolidated statement of loss and comprehensive loss, which reduced the intellectual property associated with the AlphaMind acquisition as previously reported in the Company's unaudited consolidated financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 from $535,478 to $nil.

U.S. marijuana-related activities
