("MVMD"), a private Ontario corporation, with investments in the cannabis sector. MVMD previously entered into an amalgamation agreement (the "Amalgamation Agreement") with the Company and the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, 2700915 Ontario Inc., pursuant to which all of the outstanding shares of MVMD will be exchanged for common shares of the Company (the "Proposed Transaction").

Each Convertible Debenture Unit consisted of one secured convertible debenture of the Company (a "Convertible Debenture") in the principal amount of $1,000 and 1,000 share purchase warrants of the Company (the "Convertible Debenture Warrants"). Each Convertible Debenture Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one additional common share (a "Resulting Issuer Share") of the resulting issuer upon completion of the Proposed Transaction (the "Resulting Issuer") at a price of $0.06 ($0.48, post-Consolidation) per Resulting Issuer Share for a period of five years. Each Convertible Debenture will have a maturity date of four years, earn interest at the rate of 10% per annum, with the principal and accrued interest convertible into units of the Resulting Issuer ("Conversion Units") at a price of $0.05 per Conversion Unit ($0.40, post-Consolidation).

The Company granted MVMD a right of first refusal to subscribe for up to an additional 150 Convertible Debenture Units for an aggregate purchase price of up to $150,000.
Meadow Bay paid MVMD a 7% loan administration fee in cash in the amount of $24,500 in connection with the Bridge Loan Financing.
