Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – September 28, 2023) – Argo Living Soils Corp. (CSE: ARGO) (OTC Pink: ARLSF) (“Argo” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced transaction (the “Transaction“) with Canadian AgriChar Inc. (“Canadian AgriChar“), whereby Canadian AgriChar granted Argo an exclusive right and license to market and sell its CHAR+ biochar products.

Pursuant to the Transaction, Argo will sell CHAR+ BioChar products on its website, and will receive a percentage of revenues of all CHAR+ sold through its website. In the interim period prior to sales being live on Argo’s website, Argo will act as an exclusive sales agent for Canadian AgriChar and Argo will receive a percentage of revenues of CHAR+ sold.

As consideration for the License, the Company issued Canadian AgriChar 500,000 common shares of the Company upon the Agreement becoming effective yesterday (the “Effective Date“), and has agreed to issue a further 500,000 common shares on or before the six month anniversary of the Effective Date. The shares have a deemed price of $0.15 per share. Additionally, the Company issued 1,300,000 stock options to principals of Canadian AgriChar, exercisable at a price of $0.15 per share for a period of five years, subject to vesting in four equal installments over eighteen months, being 25% on the date of grant, 25% 6 months from the date of grant, 25% 12 months from the date of grant, and 25% 18 months from the date of grant. The shares and options are subject to a four month statutory hold period from the date of issuance.

The Transaction constitutes a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“), as Ken Bowman is both a director and officer of Argo and a control person of Canadian AgriChar. The Company is relying on the exemptions from the formal valuation requirements contained in section 5.5(b) of MI 61-101 and the minority shareholder approval requirements contained in section 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as the Company is not listed on specified markets and the fair market value of the consideration to Canadian AgriChar does not exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization, as determined in accordance with MI 61-101. The Company did not file a material change report in respect of the related party transaction at least 21 days before the closing of the transaction, as the details of the Agreement were not settled until shortly prior to closing of the transaction.
