(TSXV: IGP) (the “Company”) will not be planting new crops in the summer of 2020, the Board has made a further decision that the Company will cease new plantings completely.

The Company will continue with its plan to harvest all the mature 4-year-old and 5-year-old crops in this fiscal year.
The Board made these decisions primarily as a result of significant doubts regarding future ginseng prices, which have continued to decline over the past few months, due to the ongoing political situation between Canada and China and the uncertainty created by the COVID-19 situation.The Board believes that, given its projected cash flows and current cash position, the Company will be financially solvent for the next twelve months.About Imperial Ginseng Products Ltd.The Company is an agricultural company that seeks to provide investors returns through the cultivation and processing of North American ginseng in Ontario and the marketing of its roots primarily to Asia.ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS“Stephen McCoach”
