MYM Corporate Update

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, December 31, 2019 – MYM Nutraceuticals Inc., (CSE: MYM) (OTCBB: MYMMF) (“MYM” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide a corporate update on restructuring efforts and general corporate matters.

The Company continues to work diligently on its 2020 strategic plan. The focus has been re-defined to opportunistically pursue projects in the Company’s space that provide MYM with attractive anticipated levels of return with limited risk. Management is currently reviewing several opportunities to merge with or acquire complementary businesses that appear to meet the Company’s criteria on a preliminary basis.

Management has recently taken measures to lower expenditures through various efforts including the elimination of all non-essential staff.  Effective December 31, 2019, several non-essential positions have been eliminated including Chief Legal Officer and Chief Scientific Officer.  The Company would like to thank its former Chief Legal Officer and Corporate Secretary, Elizabeth Liu, and its former Chief Scientific Officer, Charith Raj Adkar Purushothama for their dedication and service to the Company.  Both Ms. Liu and Mr. Purushothama will continue to support the Company in advisory roles. Mr. Robin Linden will assume the role of interim Corporate Secretary.

To further reduce overhead costs, the Company has entered into consulting agreements with remaining management whereby each manager has released the Company from all obligations under their respective employment agreement (which have been terminated) and has accepted ongoing compensation comprised of a reduced cash component and share consideration. The compensation shares, approximately $50 thousand per month, will be issued at the then current market prices.

SublimeCulture – in September 2019, communications with Health Canada indicated that after addressing some minor updates, the application is expected to be submitted for final approval. SublimeCulture has responded to all recent requests for information from Health Canada and continues to progress in the late-stage application process.

International Brands – the Company has decided not to pursue its International Brands opportunities in Mexico and the UK and has entered into a Settlement Agreement and Release with Erick Factor, a former Director and Officer, pursuant to which Mr. Factor has agreed to settle his severance entitlement of $330,000 through the transfer to Mr. Factor of the Company’s exclusive rights to certain non-core assets currently being developed by the International Brands team, including intellectual property and trademarks of Joshua Tree, Dr. Furbaby, and Hempmed.

Colombia Organica – the Company has completed its due diligence on Colombia Organica and has decided that the structure and terms do not align with the Company’s focus and therefore won’t be moving forward with the contemplated transaction. The Company, however, is still engaged with Colombia Organica’s principals to find additional partners that may be better suited while keeping MYM involved on a more limited basis.

Université de Sherbrooke – the Company has terminated its relationship and will receive a partial refund of amounts previously advanced.

Weedon – the Company continues to explore various options for the Weedon facility, but it has not yet identified a viable alternative. The buildings previously used for office and housing space have been listed for sale. The Company will record a write-down of $6.7 million against property, plant, and equipment and $750 thousand against intangible assets in its November 30, 2019 financial statements.

The Company has outstanding notes receivable in the amount of $1.334 million from multiple debtors. Due to uncertainty, current market conditions and risks associated with the various receivables, the Company will record an allowance for doubtful amounts of $782 thousand against the total notes payable in the November 30, 2019 financial statements.
