Chemistree Directors Ratify Debenture Restructuring

VANCOUVER, BC, May 3, 2024 /CNW/ - Chemistree Technology Inc. (CSE: CHM) and (US OTC: CHMJF) (the "Company" or "Chemistree"), announces that its board of directors (the "Board") has approved a restructuring transaction (the "Restructuring Transaction"), pursuant to which all of the principal of the outstanding 10% senior unsecured convertible debentures of the Company (the "Debentures") will be settled and all claims of the holders of the Debentures (the "Debentureholders") thereunder will be extinguished in exchange for common shares in the capital of the Company (the "Common Shares"). Debentureholders approved the Restructuring Transaction at an extraordinary meeting of Debentureholders held on April 26, 2024.

Pursuant to the Restructuring Transaction, the Company intends to issue an aggregate of 666,800,000 Common Shares at a price of $0.01 per Common Share to Debentureholders (unless earlier redeemed in accordance with their terms). Following the closing of the Restructuring Transaction, the Debentureholders will hold Common Shares representing approximately [90.3]% of the outstanding Common Shares, representing 100,000 Common Shares issued for every $1,000 in principal amount of Debentures held. The Company anticipates that the Restructuring Transaction will become effective on or about May 9, 2024, although the Board has retained the discretion, without further notice to or approval from the Debentureholders, to revoke any part of the Restructuring Resolution at any time prior to the Company completing the Restructuring Transaction.

The issuance of the Common Shares in connection with the Restructuring Transaction will result in the issuance of more than 100% of the current number of issued and outstanding Common Shares. The Listings Committee of the Canadian Securities Exchange (the "CSE") has approved the Company's reliance on an exception from the shareholder approval requirements in Section 4.6(2) of CSE Policy 4 – Corporate Governance, Security Holder Approvals and Miscellaneous Provisions, on the basis that the Company is in serious financial difficulty and the independent directors of the Board determined that the Restructuring Transaction is in the best interest of the Company, is reasonable in the circumstances and that it is not feasible to obtain shareholder approval of the Restructuring Transaction. The Listings Committee of the CSE has also waived the application of the insider participation restrictions under Section 4.6(2)(b)(iii) of CSE Policy 4 in connection with the Restructuring Transaction. Accordingly, the Company will not seek shareholder approval for the Restructuring Transaction.
