TORONTO, Sept. 18, 2020 /CNW/ - 2707031 Ontario Inc.

("Fire & Flower") upon the exercise of 13,146,469 series A common share purchase warrants of Fire & Flower (the "Series A Warrants"), representing approximately 7.40% of the issued and outstanding Fire & Flower Shares.

Immediately prior to the exercise of 13,146,469 Series A Warrants and the acquisition of the 13,146,469 Fire & Flower Shares, 2707 held (i) 4,061,593 Fire & Flower Shares (representing approximately 2.47% of the issued and outstanding Fire & Flower Shares); (ii) $25,989,985.42 principal amount of 8% unsecured convertible debentures of Fire & Flower ("2019 Debentures"); (iii) $2,475,000 principal amount of 8% secured convertible debentures of Fire & Flower ("2020 Debentures" and, together with the 2019 Debentures, the "Debentures"); (iv) 34,158,027 Series A Warrants; (v) 67,175,541 series B common share purchase warrants of Fire & Flower (the "Series B Warrants"); and (vi) 133,390,789 series C common share purchase warrants of Fire & Flower (the "Series C Warrants" and, together with the Series A Warrants and the Series B Warrants, the "Warrants"). In the event the principal amount of the Debentures is converted in full (assuming a $0.90 conversion price for the 2019 Debentures) and all of the 234,724,357 Warrants are fully exercised, 2707 would have ownership and control over an aggregate of 272,613,711 Fire & Flower Shares (including the 4,061,593 Fire & Flower Shares referred to above). These combined holdings would represent approximately 62.95% of the outstanding Fire & Flower Shares, calculated on a partially diluted basis assuming the conversion in full of the Debentures and the full exercise of the 234,724,357 Warrants held by 2707 only (approximately 52.98% on a fully diluted basis).
