Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – May 18, 2022) – Biome Grow Inc. (CSE: BIO), (OTCQB: BIOIF), (the “Company, BIO“) announces that MYM Nutraceuticals Inc. (“MYM“) has filed a receivership application (“Application“) in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice against the Company and its wholly owned subsidiary Cultivator Catalyst Corp., in connection with outstanding credit facilities granted to the Company and Cultivator as previously announced by the Company on July 27, 2020.

MYM is seeking, among other relief, an Order appointing KSV Restructuring Inc. (“KSV”) as receiver and manager over all of the undertaking, properties and assets of the Company (the “Property“), which includes shareholdings held directly or indirectly by the Company, of IM Cannabis Corporation (“IMCC“) which have been pledged as collateral to secure the above noted Credit Facilities.

On May 12, 2022, MYM and the Company agreed to adjourn the Application in order to allow the Company to appropriately respond to the allegations made by MYM in its application materials and to file responding materials. The matter was adjourned until May 26, 2022. As part of the adjournment, the Company consented to terms intended to ensure the preservation of the Property and requiring the consent of MYM to be obtained in advance of any disposition or dealing with same, other than in the ordinary course of business. Such terms were incorporated into an Order which was granted by the Honourable Justice Gilmore on May 12, 2022 as an Interim Order pending the return of the adjourned court appearance in this matter, which Order additionally included certain further provisions requested by MYM concerning disclosure of the existence and location of Property of the Company. This disclosure has now been met.

Khurram Malik, CEO of Biome Grow Inc., commented, “We support the mutually agreed upon preservation relief that has been endorsed by the Court and which will allow the Company to prepare its response to the Application. It is our belief that the IMCC stock price and current public market dynamics are significantly decoupled from the implied value represented by IMCC of its business through its financial disclosures. The current market value of the IMCC stock held by the Company exceeds the aggregate value of the MYM’s claims as stated in the Application before the Court and the Company looks forward to resolving this matter in an efficient and timely manner. We do not believe, under any circumstances, that it would be in the best interests of the shareholders of either BIO or IMCC for the Company to be selling the IMCC shares at the currently depressed share price and at volume levels.”
