As per Matica press release dated November 16, 2020, Matica increased its position in its subsidiary, RoyalMax Biotechnology Canada Inc. DBA West Island Culture (“RoyalMax”), from 70% to 99.97%. In March 2021, the Company was served with a nuisance lawsuit by 9076484 CANADA INC., seeking principally an order declaring that it is a 14.5% owner of RoyalMax Biotechnology Canada Inc. The Company believes the claim is frivolous and without merit. The Company will aggressively defend itself and seek all available remedies under the law.

Also, Cannatechnologie Inc. is seeking an order overturning RoyalMax’ issuance of shares to Matica as per the aforementioned press release of November 16, 2020. The Company believes each of these 2 lawsuits is without merit and were commenced in order to seek a payment via a settlement.
