Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – April 2, 2020) – EuroLife Brands (CSE: EURO) (FSE: 3CMA) (OTC Pink: EURPF) (“EuroLife” or the “Company”), a vertically integrated enterprise focused on the pan-European hemp, cannabinoid, and health and wellness sector, today announced a shareholder relief plan regarding the exercise of the Company’s outstanding warrants in direct response to the impact of the COVID-19 crisis and its affects on the public markets. In consideration of warrant holders, the Company intends to reprice an aggregate of 59,295,920 common share purchase warrants (the “Warrants”) to $0.05 per common share until May 4, 2020. The reprice will extend to all outstanding warrants.
The shareholder relief plan was created to combat the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic to public markets and the value of EuroLife common shares. It extends to outstanding Warrants with an exercise price between $0.05 and $0.125 and an expiry date between May 4, 2020 and January 15, 2022, in an effort to be more reflective of current market conditions.
“The capital markets are not immune to the COVID-19 pandemic and the repricing of warrants will, at the very least, provide warrant holders some financial relief in response to the undue impact of the coronavirus,” said Shawn Moniz, CEO of EuroLife. “In this time of crisis, our thoughts are with frontline workers and those who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. I encourage everyone to stay safe and healthy.”
The shareholder relief plan provides a lower exercise price which increases the likelihood that warrant holders will be able to exercise their Warrants prior to May 4, 2020. If all the Warrants, subject to the shareholder relief plan, are exercised during the proposed exercise period, EuroLife expects to receive gross proceeds of approximately $2.96 million and issue approximately 59,295,920 common shares on or before May 4, 2020.
The proposed extension constitutes a related party transaction within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“) as related parties of the Company hold Warrants being amended. However, in accordance with MI 61-101, the exemptions from formal valuation and minority approval requirements can be relied upon as the fair market value of the Warrants does not exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.
The transaction is subject to the receipt of all final regulatory approvals including those from the Canadian Securities Exchange. Any Warrants that are not exercised before May 4, 2020 will remain outstanding and will be exercisable for common shares of the Company on the same terms applicable to such Warrants as they existed prior to the shareholder relief plan and will no longer be eligible to the reduced exercise price of the Warrants. For clarity, the Warrants issued on May 4, 2018 will expire after 5 pm PST on May 4, 2020.

MediPharm Labs and Ace Valley Deliver Innovative Vapes – Now Available in Several Markets Across Canada
TORONTO, May 25, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MediPharm Labs Corp. (TSX: LABS) (OTCQX: MEDIF) (FSE: MLZ) (“MediPharm Labs” or the “Company”), a global leader in specialized, research-driven pharmaceutical-quality cannabis extraction, distillation and derivative products, is pleased to announce that its highly anticipated and innovative suite of “Ace Valley Vapes” are officially available in several markets across Canada. The Company shipped three new vape products under this white label brand-line to multiple provinces last week.
The launch of the Ace Valley Vapes is the culmination of the Company’s previously announced white label agreement through its subsidiary, MediPharm Labs Inc., with AV Cannabis Inc. (d/b/a Ace Valley). Through this collaboration, Ace Valley leveraged its leading brand traction and product strategy expertise to design, brand and market new and innovative vaporizer products, while MediPharm Labs provided raw material from its supply chain, high-quality cannabis distillate, formulation and filling expertise from its GMP-certified facility, as well as distribution services across Canada to cannabis distributors and retailers.“Ace Valley has emerged as one of Canada’s true cannabis brands. We are proud to be partnering with a team that consistently raises the bar through product development and marketing ingenuity, further elevated by our superiour product formulations and top CPG-quality processes,” said Pat McCutcheon, Chief Executive Officer of MediPharm Labs.“We are passionately building a great cannabis brand in Canada,” said Mike Wagman, Chief Executive Officer of Ace Valley. “Our new all-in-one vapes, with an innovative logo light-up feature, are a big part of our platform and we have a strong partner in MediPharm Labs, the leader in cannabis extraction and purified cannabis concentrates in Canada.”Unique Product Formulations with Original Vape Hardware
Each Ace Valley Vape is an all-in-one unit with 0.3 ml of formulated cannabis distillate. Working in collaboration with Ace Valley, MediPharm Labs’ Applied Science team formulated three unique products – CBD, Sativa and Indica options – each comprised of 95% distillate and 5% botanically derived terpenes, with zero carrier oil, other additives, or thickening agents. Ace Valley selected this variety of vape options so consumers can curate their experience.The vape hardware is an all-in-one unit, not requiring a separate purchase of battery and vapourizer cartridge. Ace Valley wanted to offer customers something convenient, consistent, and easy-to-use. By providing an integrated all-in-one hardware device, they were able to deliver maximum consistency from one experience to the next, as the distillate and vapourizing hardware have been specifically designed and tested together.“The concept for our new vapes is the brainchild of our co-founder, Noah Gill, who wanted customers to have a fun way to experience the device,” explained Mike Wagman, CEO of Ace Valley. “Unlike other vape pens on the market, the Ace Valley Vape lights up each of the four colour bands in our logo sequentially as you inhale. This provides the customer with simple and intuitive control and a unique interaction.”Multi-Province Distribution
MediPharm Labs has already completed shipments to Ontario, BC and Alberta distribution hubs.
