World Class Extractions Inc. Announces Application for Management Cease Trade Order

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - August 15, 2022) - World Class Extractions Inc. (CSE: PUMP) (FSE: WCF) (OTCQB: WCEXF) (the "Company" or "World-Class") announces that it has made an application to the British Columbia Securities Commission to approve a temporary management cease trade order the "MCTO") under National Policy 12-203 Management Cease Trade Orders ("NP 12-203"), which, if granted, will prohibit trading in securities of the Company by the chief executive officer and chief financial officer of the Company until such time as the Required Filings (as defined below) and all continuous disclosure requirements have been filed by the Company, and the MCTO has been lifted. During the period in which the MCTO is effective, the general public, who are not insiders of the Corporation, will continue to be able to trade in the Company's listed securities. The MCTO application has been made, but there is no guarantee or assurance that the MCTO will be granted.

The Company expects it will be unable to file its audited financial statements for the financial year ended April 30, 2022, and the management's discussion and analysis and related Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer certificates for this period (collectively, the "Required Filings") before the August 29, 2022 filing deadline (the "Filing Deadline").

The Company's failure to file its Required Filings by the Filing Deadline is due to a combination of factors including the delays in audit due to the delay in obtaining financial information with respect to the Company's interest in Pineapple Express Delivery Inc. which was disposed of during the financial year ended April 30, 2022 to Fire & Flower Holdings Corp. and valuation of such disposition and assets.

The Company anticipates that it will be in a position to remedy the default by filing the Required Filings on or before October 31, 2022. The MCTO will be in effect until the Required Filings are completed.

The Company intends to satisfy the provisions of the alternative information guidelines set out in section 10 NP 12-203 so long as the Required Filings are outstanding.
