Tinley's Enters into Management Services Agreement

Tinley's Enters into Management Services Agreement

Expected to Save Approximately USD $1 Million in Annual Operating Expenses

The Tinley Beverage Company Inc. (CSE: TNY) (OTCQB: TNYBF) ("Tinley's" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a management services agreement (the "MSA") with Blaze Life Holdings, LLC ("BLH") and its wholly-owned subsidiary, ILLA Canna LLC, effective January 23, 2023.

Under the terms of the MSA, Tinley's will relocate its bottling assets and related equipment to BLH's new 45,000 square foot cannabis manufacturing and distribution facility located in Canoga Park, California (the "Canoga Park Facility") and BLH and its licensed subsidiaries will provide certain management and operational services to Tinley's. Based upon management's current financial modelling, the provision of such services by BLH and relocation of Tinley's bottling assets to the Canoga Park Facility is expected to result in operating cost savings of approximately USD $1 million per year. Tinley's CEO, Teddy Zittell, said: "Since we began our collaborative partnership with BLH in June 2022, we've successfully delivered cost reductions and increased our operating capacity. When production begins at the Canoga Park Facility, we expect efficiencies to accelerate, with additional benefits anticipated from the on-site capacity for inventory storage and integrated first-mile and last-mile distribution services provided by SuLo Distro, a subsidiary of BLH".

As part of the relocation of the Company's bottling assets, the Company will decommission and vacate its current manufacturing facility in Long Beach, California. Tinley's plans to move its bottling assets to the Canoga Park Facility during the latter half of Q2 2023 and expects such assets to be fully operational at the Canoga Park Facility by mid to late Q3 2023. During the transition from Tinley's current Long Beach facility to the Canoga Park Facility, which is expected to take approximately 30-45 days to complete, Tinley's will not be able to provide co-packing bottling services to its customers. Tinley's intends to increase bottling production during Q1 and Q2 2023 prior to its relocation of its bottling assets to the Canoga Park Facility to fulfill planned production and support co-packing demand in order to compensate for bottling line outages over the course of the move.

"As a result of the anticipated increase in production activity, we expect revenue to be higher than previously anticipated in Q1 and Q2 of 2023", said Mr. Zittell. "This increase is over and above the quarter-on-quarter revenue growth we previously expected in 2023. We have seen material revenue gains in the first three quarters of 2022, and our 2022 year-end financial results are expected to show increased revenue in Q4 2022. We have no reason to believe that this trend will not continue through 2023", Mr. Zittell added.

Until the Canoga Park Facility is fully operational, which is expected to happen in late Q2 or the beginning of Q3 2023, Tinley's will continue to produce cans at the Company's Long Beach facility for current co-pack customers, as well as for new customers introduced to Tinley's by BLH who require canned beverage manufacturing prior to the Canoga Park Facility becoming fully operational. Tinley's Long Beach can line will remain in production during the move of the Company's bottling assets to the Canoga Park Facility, and will continue to generate revenue until the Company fully exits the Long Beach facility, planned to occur at the end of Q2. Following the move to the Canoga Park Facility, BLH will produce beverages in cans for Tinley's existing can customers.

In consideration for the provision of services by BLH under the terms of the MSA, including manufacturing for Tinley's at the Canoga Park Facility, Tinley's has agreed to pay BLH a flat fee of USD $55,000 per month as well as a USD $70,000 annual fee specifically for the provision of certain prescribed accounting and administrative services by BLH set out in the MSA. Under the terms of the MSA, BLH has agreed to pay Tinley's certain referral fees for a period of two years based on revenue received by BLH in connection with the provision of co-packing canning services to Tinley's existing clients transferring production to BLH, and Tinley's will continue to receive 100% of the revenue generated from the use of Tinley's bottling assets at the Canoga Park Facility.

A copy of the MSA is available on the Company's profile at www.sedar.com.
