THIS NEWS RELEASE IS INTENDED FOR DISTRIBUTION IN CANADA ONLY AND IS NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR PUBLICATION, RELEASE OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

TORONTO and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (“TGOD” or the “Company”) (CSE: TGOD) (US-OTC: TGODF), a sustainable Canadian cannabis company and leading producer of premium, organically grown cannabis announces that it has entered into an engagement letter with Clarus Securities Inc. (the “Agent”), pursuant to which the Agent has agreed to conduct, on a “best-efforts” marketed basis, a marketed public offering (the “Offering”) of at least 12,500,000 units of the Company (the “Units”), up to a maximum of up to 15,000,000 Units, at a price of $0.40 per Unit (the “Offering Price”) for aggregate gross proceeds to TGOD of a minimum of $5,000,000 up to a maximum $6,000,000.

Each Unit will consist of one common share in the capital of the Company (each, a “Common Share”) and one Common Share purchase warrant (each warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one Common Share at an exercise price of C$0.50 for 60 months following the completion of the Offering.

The Company has granted the Agent an option (the “Over-Allotment Option”), exercisable in whole or in part, to purchase up to an additional 2,250,000 Units for a period of 30 days from and including the closing date of the Offering to cover over-allotments, if any, and for market stabilization purposes. The Agent shall be under no obligation whatsoever to exercise the Over-Allotment Option in whole or in part. If the Over-Allotment Option is exercised in full, the aggregate gross proceeds of the Offering will be C$6,900,000.

The Units will be offered by way of: (i) a prospectus supplement (the “Prospectus Supplement”) to TGOD’s short form base shelf prospectus dated November 27, 2020 (the “Shelf”), of which the Prospectus Supplement will be filed with the securities commissions and other similar regulatory authorities in each of the provinces of Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario; (ii) in the United States or to or for the account or benefit of “U.S. persons” as defined by Regulation S under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”), by way of private placement pursuant to the exemption from registration provided for under Regulation D and Rule 144A of U.S. Securities Act and the applicable securities laws of any state of the United States; and (iii) in jurisdictions outside of Canada and the United States as are agreed to by the Company and the Agent provided that no prospectus filing or comparable obligation arises.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering for working capital and general corporate purposes.

The Offering is expected to close on or about December 22, 2022 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE”).

In connection with the Offering, the Company will pay to the Agent a cash commission equal to 6.0% of the gross proceeds from the Offering, including pursuant to the exercise of the Over-Allotment Option, which will be reduced in respect of sales of Units to persons identified by the Company to the Agent pursuant to a president’s list.

Prospective investors should read the Shelf, the Prospectus Supplement, once filed, and the documents incorporated by reference therein before making an investment decision. Copies of the Shelf and the Prospectus Supplement, following filing thereof, will be available on the Company’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.
