TORONTO, November 30, 2021 - The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (the "Company" or "TGOD") (CSE: TGOD) (US-OTC: TGODF), a sustainable global cannabis company, is pleased to announce that it has agreed to amend the terms of the amended and restated credit agreement dated September 29, 2021 (the “Credit Agreement”), between The Green Organic Dutchman Ltd.

The limit to the Company’s revolving credit facility (the “Credit Facility”) will remain at $25 million total. The Agent and the Borrower have agreed to enter into the first amendment to the Credit Agreement (the “Amendment”) to, amongst other things: (i) increase the term portion of the Credit Facility from $17 million to $20 million; (ii) issue the Warrants (as defined below) to the Agent and certain affiliates of the Agent; (iii) update certain covenants set forth in the Credit Agreement; and (iv) permit the Borrower to terminate the Credit Agreement without the Agent’s consent upon 90 days written notice, subject to payment of all outstanding amounts accrued under the Credit Agreement. All other terms of the Credit Facility will remain the same as before, including the maturity date of June 30, 2023.
As consideration for the Amendment, the Company has issued a total of 3,000,000 warrants (the “Warrants”) to the Agent and certain affiliates of the Agent. Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share (a “Warrant Share”) for a period of 60 months from the issue date at a price of $0.14 per Warrant Share.
“This amendment to the Credit Agreement is an important step for the Company as it provides a significant improvement on our working capital position into 2022 as we continue to grow the business and move towards profitability,” said Sean Bovingdon, CEO and Interim CFO at TGOD.
