At the beginning of the period Galenas NJ had two active license applications outstanding including both a cultivation and dispensary application.

On March 12, 2021, the Company announced that it had entered into an exclusive non-binding letter of intent with Cannavative Group LLC ("Cannavative"), pursuant to which the Company will acquire all of the common shares in the capital of Cannavative in an all-share exchange through the issuance of an aggregate of 360,000,000 common shares of the Company at a deemed issuance price of US$0.05 per common share.

The proposed transaction is subject to, among other things, the execution of a definitive agreement between the Company and Cannavative (the "Definitive Agreement") and customary closing conditions. The proposed transaction is subject to the acceptance of the Canadian Securities Exchange (the "CSE"), the approval of the shareholders of the Company and Cannavative, and Nevada state regulatory approval. While no assurances can be made, the Company and Cannavative remain committed to complete the transaction.

Normal Course Issuer Bid ("NCIB")

On October 5, 2021, the Company's normal course issuer bid ("NCIB", the "Bid") expired. During the period of the NCIB, the Corporation purchased 580,000 of the Company's common shares ("Shares") at an average price of $0.022. On September 10, 2021, the Company approved the renewal of the Bid, commencing on October 12, 2021 and terminating the earlier of: (i) October 11, 2022, and (ii) the date on which the maximum number of Shares are purchased pursuant to the Bid. Under the Bid, the Company may purchase up to 5% of the Company's Shares.

All Shares will be purchased under the Bid on the open market and through the facilities of the CSE and payment for the Shares will be made in accordance with CSE policies. The timing and extent of repurchases will depend upon several factors, including market and business conditions, valuation of Shares, regulatory requirements, and other corporate considerations. The price paid for Shares will be the prevailing market price at the time of purchase and all Shares acquired by the Company will be cancelled. The Company had 181,411,390 Shares issued and outstanding as of the re-commencement date the BID.

Purchases may be suspended at any time, and no purchases will be made other than by means of open market transactions during the term of the Bid. The Corporation has engaged Independent Trading Group ("ITG") Inc. to act as the broker through which the Bid will be conducted.
