AfriAghas and is investing in to Apollon Formularies Ltd.The relationship between Apollon Formularies Ltd, the UKentity, and Apollon Formularies Jamaica Limited(“Apollon”) has been outlined in detail in previous announcements. Accordingly, the introductory heading should read that AfriAgis an Investee in AFL, not Apollon. 2. The referenced processing and retail licenses issued to Apollon by the Jamaican Cannabis Licensing Authority(“CLA”) are titled Processing Licence (Tier 1: < 200 square metres) #170209113513 and Retail (Therapeutic Services) License # 170209153635. Neither license title includes the phrase “with harvest produced by third party producers” as appeared in the second bullet point. Such phrase should have appeared separately and was included in order to reference the intent of Apollon to perform its first processing, and its first retail sale of medical cannabis Therapeutic Services, using the harvest of crop produced by licensed third parties while Apollon completes the next steps required for it to obtain approval of a Tier 3 cultivation license. 3. Apollon’s procurement of crop harvested by licensed third parties is strictly for processing of products to be used with research & development and/or the provision of retail medical cannabis Therapeutic Services. Crop is not being procured for direct retail sale (or resale) purposes, which the clause ““procured for retail purposes” may have suggested. Also, with regard to such procurement of crop harvested by third parties, Apollon is serving as the “Downstream Buyer” in the transactions to occur with a third party “Cultivator” and the “Authority” [CLA] as such terms are defined and used in the CLA’s Tripartite Agreement. Apollon is not presently engaging in Tripartite Agreement transaction as a “Cultivator.” 4. As explained above and otherwise in the Company’s announcement of 17 June 2019, Apollon has a conditional Cultivator’s License (Tier 1) (Up to 1 acre) that has been issued by the CLA and is the process of seeking a Tier 3 (> 5 acres) cultivation license. While Apollon is in the process of pursuing approval for a Tier 3 license, it is supplementing its processing and research & development needs that are not met by the harvests resulting from its Tier 1 cultivation efforts using crop procured by third parties per Tripartite Agreement transactions. Once a Tier 3 license is approved for Apollon, it is Apollon (not third party producers) that will be the Cultivator for such land approved for cultivation under the Tier 3 license. Accordingly, the phrase “by third party producers, as set out in” should not have been included in the last bullet point so as to avoid suggesting that third party producers are involved with the Tier 3 Cultivator’s license.
Apollon is a Federally Licensed vertically integrated medical cannabis company operating in
