Toronto, Ontario and Los Angeles, California–(Newsfile Corp. – April 25, 2022) – The Tinley Beverage Company Inc. (CSE: TNY) (OTCQX: TNYBF) (“Tinley’s” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the launch of its Tinleys 27 Smooth Coconut elixir is continuing to roll out in Ontario. The Company is also pleased to announce that it has received an advance in the aggregate amount of US$612,250 (the “Advance”) from Richard Gillis, President and Chief Operating Officer of Tinley’s USA, and member of Tinley’s Office of the CEO.
Tinley’s Ontario Brand Launch Update
The Company is working with its sales agents, Northern Elements, to introduce Tinleys ’27 Smooth Coconut elixir to an increasing number of dispensaries in key Ontario regional markets since the product’s listing went live earlier this month. To help accelerate retail and consumer uptake, non-infused versions of the product are being offered in store to buyers and are also being made available to dispensaries for consumer sampling events to illustrate the easy sip, mix, and share possibilities of the Tinleys ’27 Caribbean-inspired elixir. In addition, retail point-of-purchase materials are now available, including counter cards with recipe booklets promoting five use occasions through easy-to-mix at home mocktail recipes.
The product continues to be available online via the Ontario Cannabis Store (the “OCS”) website. The Company understands that the OCS reallocates inventory from its warehoused stock in response to online demand, and consumers seeking to order from the OCS website may see the product shown as out of stock, and then find the product available to order hours later or the following day. The Company further understands that the OCS online internal replenishment cycle is expected to accelerate throughout the first 30-60 days of listing. As previously announced, Tinleys Classics Mystic Dove Paloma-inspired ready-to-drink mocktail is expected to be available to Ontario dispensaries and consumers in May.

The Advance will be evidenced by a secured, convertible promissory note, the terms and conditions of which are to be determined by the Company and Richard Gillis at a forthcoming date. The proceeds of the Advance will be used for Tinley’s working capital and for general corporate purposes.
The Advance is subject to all necessary approvals, including final approval from the Canadian Securities Exchange.
The Advance is considered a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Company relied on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority approval requirements in sections 5.5(b) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 in respect of the Advance. Further details will be provided in the Company’s material change report to be filed on SEDAR. The Company did not file a material change report in respect of the related party transaction less than 21 days prior to the closing of the transaction, which the Company deems reasonable in the circumstances so as to be able to avail itself of the proceeds of the Advance in an expeditious manner.
Other Corporate Updates: Previously Announced Acquisition Transaction
Tinley’s is pleased to announce that the Company and Lakewood Libations, Inc. (“Lakewood”) have received approval by the City of Long Beach, California for the previously announced agreements for Tinley’s to purchase one hundred percent (100%) of the shares of Lakewood from Richard Gillis for a nominal fee, (the “Acquisition Transaction”). The Company and Lakewood have now submitted the final applications for the change of control of Lakewood to the State of California. The State’s approval, barring unforeseen delays, may be expected on or about the end of Q2 2022. State approval will be the final step in the previously announced change of control of Lakewood and the closing of the Acquisition Transaction.
