GATINEAU, Quebec, Nov. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HEXO Corp. (TSX: HEXO; NASDAQ: HEXO) (“HEXO” or the “Company”) today announced that, following the issuance of an approval and vesting order of the Superior Court of Québec (Commercial Division) on October 24, 2022 (as amended and restated on October 25, 2022) (the “Zenabis Approval and Vesting Order”) in connection with previously initiated proceedings under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act relating to Zenabis Global Inc. (“Zenabis”) and its direct and indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries (collectively, the “Zenabis Group”), the Company no longer holds any shares, voting or equity securities or other interests in Zenabis or the Zenabis Group.
HEXO understands that, as part of the pre-closing steps approved by the Zenabis Approval and Vesting Order, Zenabis amalgamated with certain other companies within the Zenabis Group to form Zenabis Ltd. (“AmalCo”). Subsequently, all of the issued and outstanding shares of AmalCo then held by the Company as a result of such amalgamation were exchanged for common shares of a newly formed corporation (“ResidualCo”) and, immediately thereafter, all of the common shares of the capital of ResidualCo so held by the Company were cancelled for no consideration, as approved by the Zenabis Approval and Vesting Order. As a result of the foregoing, HEXO no longer holds any shares, voting or equity securities or other interests in any of the companies within the Zenabis Group, AmalCo or ResidualCo, and HEXO ultimately received no cash or other consideration for it so ceasing to hold any shares, voting or equity securities or other interests in Zenabis Global Inc. (including through the latter’s successor, namely AmalCo).
