MedMen Agrees to Independent Board of Directors as Gotham Green Limits Its Near-Term Cash Availability

MedMen Announces Additional Amendments to Gotham Green Facility – Designated News Release

LOS ANGELES, October 29, 2019–(BUSINESS WIRE)–MedMen Enterprises Inc. (CSE:MMEN) (OTCQX:MMNFF) (“MedMen” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce certain amendments to its US$250,000,000 senior secured convertible credit facility (the “Facility”) arranged by Gotham Green Partners.

As a result of the amendments to the Facility, the aggregate amount that remains available to be borrowed has not changed. However, in order to minimize dilution given the current capital market environment, both parties have agreed to amend the size of both Tranche 3 and Tranche 4, as well as the timing of Tranche 3. Tranche 3 now consists of $10,000,000 in available credit and Tranche 4 consists of $115,000,000 in available credit. The parties anticipate that Tranche 3 will be funded within 30 days instead of the originally proposed date in December 2019.

The Facility has also been amended to provide that funding of Tranche 4 will require the consent of both the Company and the lenders under the Facility. Certain of the reporting and financial covenants under the Facility have also been modified to provide the Company with additional balance sheet flexibility. The modifications include a reduction in required minimum cash balances, removal of restrictions on equity issuances and an additional ability to spin-out or borrow against certain non-core assets, in addition to sales and indebtedness that were permitted prior to the amendment.

Please refer to the Company’s news releases dated August 12, 2019, July 10, 2019, May 23, 2019 and April 23, 2019 and to other documents available on the Company’s profile at www.sedar.com for additional details as to the Facility, including the amendments made thereto.

In addition, the Company has agreed to form a committee to select new independent directors to be appointed or elected to the board, which directors would form a majority of the board. The Company will propose director candidates to this committee for consideration and approval.

This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful. The securities being offered have not been, nor will they be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and applicable state securities laws.
