CNX Holdings Enters Amalgamation Agreement with Theia Resources

TORONTO, July 9, 2018 – CNX Holdings Inc. (“CNX”) announced it recently entered a binding Amalgamation Agreement with Theia Resources Limited (TSXV:THH) (“Theia”) to complete a transaction (the “Proposed Transaction”). The Transaction, if completed, will result in the reverse takeover of Theia by the current shareholders of CNX. The Amalgamation Agreement was negotiated at arm’s length and was effective June 29, 2018.

CNX, through one of its wholly-owned subsidiaries, is currently overseeing an intensive conversion of a greenhouse to prepare it for large-scale hydroponic cannabis cultivation, processing and production. The 430,000 square foot greenhouse is strategically positioned and within close proximity to the lucrative, tourism-driven Las Vegas adult-use and medical cannabis market. To date, more than 4,900 hours of construction and renovation work have been completed on the greenhouse. Planting in the facility will begin late 2018 and will be fully operational in early 2019. The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority cites more than 55 million tourists are forecasted to visit the city in 2018.

Trading in the Theia Shares on the TSXV is halted at present. Unless the Proposed Transaction fails to close, Theia does not expect its shares will resume trading again until listing has been accepted by the CSE. The Proposed Transaction constitutes a “reverse takeover” under the rules of the TSXV.

CNX completed its first financing of USD $26.7 million in March 2018. Prior to or concurrently with completion of the Proposed Transaction, CNX intends to complete one or more private placement financings to raise gross proceeds of up to USD $50 million by the sale of its Class A common voting shares.

CNX has scheduled a Special Shareholders Meeting on Friday, August 17 at 10:30 am (Pacific Time) at Fasken Martineau’s Vancouver Office located at 550 Burrard Street, Suite 2900.

For further information with respect to the Proposed Transaction, please refer to the press release dated July 9, 2018 and posted under Theia’s issuer profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
