Rojo Resources Ltd. (TSXV: RJ:H) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced private placement of subscription receipts.  The private placement was over-subscribed and raised gross proceeds of $5,745 ,000. In addition to proceeds raised by Rojo under the Offering, the target company of Rojo’s proposed reverse takeover Salvation Botanicals Ltd. has also completed a non-brokered private placement of 1,020,000 units for gross proceeds of $255,000, for aggregate gross Offering and Sidecar proceeds of $6,000,000 .

Rojo issued 45,960,000 subscription receipts (the “Subscription Receipts“) at a price of $0.125 per Subscription Receipt ( $0.25 per Subscription Receipt on a post-consolidation basis, with reference to the Company’s previously announced 2:1 common share consolidation).  The gross proceeds from the Offering will be held in escrow by Computershare Trust Company of Canada and will be released upon completion of the escrow release conditions, which include completion of the Company’s acquisition by plan of arrangement of Salvation, which includes Salvation’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Numinus Wellness Inc. (“Numinus“). The entity resulting from the acquisition is referred to as the “Resulting Issuer”.

The Resulting Issuer aims to operate at the forefront of the transformative change in treating the growing prevalence of mental health issues and desire for greater overall wellness through regulated alternative medicine therapies including the use of cannabinoids and, subject to regulatory approval, psychedelic drug treatments. The Resulting Issuer has an established and integrated treatment and healing centre with the goal of creating a model to scale globally.

The Resulting Issuer proposes to deploy the additional working capital provided by the substantial oversubscription of the Offering and Sidecar to:

(i)

upgrade its existing integrated treatment and healing centre, as well as expand the network of centres through acquisitions of existing facilities;

(ii)

upgrade Salvation’s existing laboratory and processing facilities;

(iii)

finance the completion of Salvation’s cannabis sales license application process with Health Canada;

(iv)

build a comprehensive research and development facility to advance the growth and sophistication of both Salvation and Numinus’ offerings;

(v)

engage the growing community of experts in psychedelic therapy protocol developments to enhance and grow the scope of Numinus’ services, and provide additional training to Numinus’ staff in respect of same;

(vi)

to fund strategic partnerships aimed at developing a model that uses research, therapies and technology to advance public health and wellness; and

(vii)

for general working capital.

In connection with the plan of arrangement, pursuant to which Rojo will acquire Salvation (including its wholly-owned subsidiary Numinus), the Company will prepare and file a filing statement on TSX Venture Exchange Form 3D2 (the “Filing Statement“). When available under the Company’s profile at www.sedar.com, investors are encouraged to review the entirety of the Filing Statement for greater detail in respect of the business of the Company, business of Salvation, the proposed business of the Resulting Issuer and the use of proceeds discussed above.

As a result of the 2:1 common share consolidation, each two Subscription Receipts represents the right to automatically receive, upon closing of the Company’s proposed plan of arrangement, one unit of the Resulting Issuer, each unit comprising one common share and one-half of one share purchase warrant (the “Warrants“). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire for a period of 2 years, one common share at a price of 50 cents per share, subject to accelerated expiry. The Warrants contain an accelerator clause whereby, if at any time after the date of issuance and prior to the expiry of the Warrants the volume-weighted average trading price of the common shares exceeds 75 cents for a period of 10 consecutive trading days, the Resulting Issuer is entitled, at its option, to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants by delivering written notice to the holders of Warrants, to a date that is not less than 30 days following the delivery of such written notice. The Salvation Units issued under the Sidecar are each comprised of one common share of Salvation, and one warrant of Salvation having the same terms as the Warrants. All securities of Salvation issued in the Sidecar will be included in the previously announced acquisition of Salvation by Rojo on a 1:1 basis.

The Company has agreed to pay certain finder’s fees in connection with the Offering. The finder’s fees are not payable until the escrow release conditions are met, being the closing of the Company’s acquisition of Salvation.
