Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – December 22, 2021) – Nextleaf Solutions Ltd. (CSE: OILS) (OTCQB: OILFF) (FSE: L0MA) ("Nextleaf", "OILS", or the "Company"), a federally regulated producer of cannabis oil that distributes cannabis vapes and oils under its prohibition-era brand, Glacial Gold™, is pleased to announce the closing of its previously announced marketed public offering (the "Offering") of units of the Company (the "Units"). Pursuant to the Offering, the Company issued 15,844,208 Units at a price of $0.20 per Unit (the "Offering Price") for aggregate gross proceeds of $3,168,841.60 including the partial exercise of the over-allotment option. Research Capital Corporation is acting as sole agent and sole bookrunner (the "Agent") on a best efforts basis pursuant to the filing of a prospectus supplement dated December 15, 2021 (the "Supplement") to the Company’s short form base shelf prospectus dated November 23, 2021 (the "Prospectus").

Each Unit is comprised of one common share in the capital of the Company (each, a "Common Share") and one common share purchase warrant (each, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant is exercisable to acquire one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.275 per Common Share until December 22, 2023.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering for the procurement and delivery of its cannabis products to various provincial markets nationally, for the partial repayment of principal and interest on a senior secured convertible note of the Company, for general and administrative expenses and for working capital and general corporate purposes.

In connection with today’s closing, the Company paid the Agent and certain members of the selling group an aggregate cash commission of $183,835.25, issued the Agent and certain members of the selling group an aggregate of 849,504 non-transferable broker warrants (the "Broker Warrants"), and issued the Agent an aggregate of 500,000 Common Shares as a corporate finance fee. Each Broker Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one Unit at an exercise price equal to the Offering Price at any time prior to 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on the expiry date of the Warrants.

Insiders of the Company purchased an aggregate of 300,000 Units under the Offering, which constituted a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The issuance to the insiders is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as the fair market value of the Units issued to or the consideration paid by such insiders did not exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization. The Company did not file a material change report 21 days prior to the closing of the Offering as the details of the participation of insiders of the Company had not been confirmed at that time.

Copies of the Supplement and the Prospectus are available on the Company’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.
