Cannara Proposes Agreement to Acquire Global shopCBD.com

Canada NewsWire

VANCOUVER, May 27, 2020 /CNW Telbec/ - Cannara Biotech Inc. ("Cannara" or the "Company") (CSE: LOVE) (OTCQB: LOVFF) (FRA: 8CB), an emerging vertically integrated cannabis company focused on indoor cultivation, processing and sale of premium dried cannabis and cannabis derivative products, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a proposed share exchange agreement dated May 26, 2020 among the Company, Global shopCBD.com Inc. ("Global") and the shareholders of Global (the "Exchange Agreement"), pursuant to which, the Company will acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Global (the "Proposed Transaction") that it currently does not own. The Company currently owns 61.23% of the outstanding common shares of Global.

Global, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, operates an online e-commerce platform focused on tapping into the U.S. Hemp CBD market offering curated selections of top tier products in a fast, secure and reliable transaction.

The Proposed Transaction

Pursuant to the terms of the Exchange Agreement, Cannara will acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Global which are not owned by the Company in consideration for the issuance of 23,262,581 common shares of the Company (the "Payment Shares") pro rata to the shareholders of Global at a deemed price of $0.10 per Payment Share upon closing of the Proposed Transaction.

The Proposed Transaction remains subject to certain closing conditions including, without limitation, (a) the receipt by Cannara of shareholder and regulatory approval; and (b) each party's representations and warranties in the Exchange Agreement being true and correct in all aspects as of the Closing Date, and each party meeting its terms and conditions and fulfilling its covenants and obligations as contained therein. There can be no guarantees that the Proposed Transaction will be completed as contemplated or at all.

Zohar Krivorot, president, CEO and a director of the Company, is also a director of Global.  As a result, the Proposed Transaction constitutes a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The Proposed Transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value (as determined under MI 61-101) of the subject matter of, nor the fair market value of the consideration for, the transaction, insofar as it involves interested parties, exceeds 25% of the Company's market capitalization.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company had a valuation report of Global prepared by an independent valuator in connection with the Proposed Transaction which valued Global at $6,000,000, resulting in a value of the common shares not already owned by the Company at $2,326,258.

The Payment Shares will not be subject to any hold periods under applicable securities laws.
