Better Plant Announces Entry Into Definitive Merger Agreement

Vancouver, B.C. – April 26, 2022: Better Plant Sciences Inc. (CSE: PLNT) (OTC: VEGGD) (FRA: YG3) (“Better Plant” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that further to its news release dated February 15, 2022, the Company has entered into a definitive merger agreement on April 26, 2022 (the “Merger Agreement”)  for the reverse merger transaction (the “Transaction”) between FreedomX Metaversive Networks Inc. (formerly called Metaversive Networks Inc.) (“Metaversive”) and the Company.  The Merger Agreement was entered into between the Company, Metaversive and  1233392 B.C. Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (“Subco”).

The Merger Agreement states that  the Transaction will be completed by way of a three-cornered amalgamation between the Company, Metaversive and Subco, pursuant to which Metaversive and Subco will amalgamate to form Amalco and the Company will acquire 100% of the issued and outstanding Metaversive Shares from the holders of the Metaversive Shares in exchange for common shares of the Company on a 1:1 basis. Upon the closing of the Transaction, Amalco will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Resulting Issuer.  Pursuant to the completion of the Transaction, the Company is obligated to complete a 2 for 1 consolidation of its stock and change its name from Better Plant Sciences Inc. to FreedomX Metaversive Inc. prior to completion of the Transaction.

The Merger Agreement contemplates that after receipt of all required approvals, the parties will enter into the Amalgamation Agreement to effect the Amalgamation. On completion of the Amalgamation, each previously issued common share of Subco owned by the Company will be cancelled and the Company will receive one common share of Amalco for each common share of Subco held by it. In addition, each previously issued Metaversive Share will be cancelled and each Metaversive Shareholder will receive one Common Share of the Company for each Metaversive Share formerly held by them. The outstanding warrants and options of Metaversive will be exchanged into warrants and options of the Resulting Issuer on an identical basis.

The Transaction  will result in the Company acquiring all of the issued and outstanding securities of Metaversive, and Amalco (which is in substance Metaversive) becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.  At the conclusion of the Transaction, the largest shareholder of the Resulting Issuer will be Ztudium Limited, a software development company incorporated under the laws of England, and owned by Dinis Guarda, who is the Chief Executive Officer of Metaversive.

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, the following individuals shall be appointed as directors of the Resulting Issuer at the closing of the Transaction: Dinis Guarda, Hilton Supra and Penny White and the following directors of the Company shall continue as directors of the Company:  Cole Drezdoff and Spiros Margaris. According to the Merger Agreement, at closing of the Transaction, the officers of the Company shall be Dinis Guarda, as Chief Executive Officer, Hilton Supra as Chief Strategy Officer, Penny White as President, Sonesh Sira as VP, Partnerships and Heather Williamson as VP, Corporate Finance and Corporate Secretary.

Each of the Company and Metaversive is permitted to complete a pre-closing equity financing.   The Company may undertake a financing at a price not less than $0.35 per unit for gross proceeds of not more than $6,000,000 or otherwise as the Company and Metaversive mutually agree.  Metaversive may undertake a financing at a price of not less than $0.35 per unit, for gross proceeds of not more than $1,152,299, or otherwise on such terms and conditions as the Company and Metaversive agree.

There are currently 30,993,531 shares issued and outstanding in Metaversive, of which 24,000,100 shares will be subject to 3 year escrow provisions, in accordance with National Policy 46-201.

The closing of the Transaction is subject to a number of conditions, including that a  2:1 consolidation of the Company’s shares be completed, and that a special majority of the Metaversive Shareholders approve the Transaction, and that approval from the Canadian Securities Exchange be granted for the Transaction.

Although the Company and Metaversive have certain directors, officers and shareholders in common, the transaction is not subject to the requirements of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (the “Instrument”) since it does not constitute a “related party transaction” of the Company under Part 5 of the Instrument and falls within one of the exceptions to the definition of the term “business combination” in Section 1.1 of the Instrument.

The Transaction is anticipated to constitute a fundamental change under Exchange Policy 8, which states that “a fundamental change or change of business of a listed issuer effectively results in a new issuer, such that the existing disclosure record cannot be relied upon to fairly value the company’s securities. A “fundamental change” is a major acquisition accompanied or preceded by a change of control.”

The Company anticipates that its stock will continue to be halted until the close of the Transaction.

Better Plant Congratulates Affiliate Neonmind On Recent Achievements

Vancouver, B.C. – November 10, 2021: Better Plant Sciences Inc. (CSE: PLNT) (OTCQB: VEGGF) (FRA: YG3) (“Better Plant” or the “Company”), a wellness company, congratulated its affiliate NeonMind Biosciences Inc. (“NeonMind”) on its recent achievements and advancements toward its drug development program and planned specialty clinics launch.

On November 8, 2021, NeonMind formed an alliance with SRx Health Solutions (“SRx”). SRx is a leading Canadian specialty healthcare services and medical treatment provider, to establish and operate a network of NeonMind-branded specialty clinics to deliver evidence-backed innovative treatments for a variety of mental health needs. NeonMind will leverage SRx’s nationwide network of over 70 clinics, as well as its operational capabilities, to bring NeonMind’s unique treatment protocols to underserved populations in Canada.

Prior to its alliance with SRx, NeonMind was ranked third in Psychedelia Magazine’s “8 Industry Innovators” segment within the magazine’s inaugural Winter 2022 issue. NeonMind was recognized for its dual approach in bringing psychedelic treatments to patients in need through its anticipated specialty mental health clinic launch and its drug development program for novel obesity treatments.

Better Plant congratulates NeonMind for these advancements toward providing integrated mental health services and delivering evidence-backed, innovative treatments tailored to local market needs. NeonMind is a Better Plant portfolio company with an ownership of 26 percent. NeonMind is listed on the CSE under the ticker symbol “NEON”, and on the OTCQB under the ticker symbol “NMDBF”.

 

About NeonMind Biosciences Inc.

NeonMind operates two divisions: (i) a pharmaceutical division engaged in drug development of psychedelic compounds with two lead psilocybin-based drug candidates targeting obesity; and (ii) a medical services division focused on launching specialty mental health clinics that integrate psychedelic therapeutics into traditional psychotherapy settings.

In its pharmaceutical division, NeonMind has two distinct psilocybin drug development programs targeting obesity. NeonMind’s lead candidate, NEO-001, employs psilocybin as an agonist at the serotonin 5- HT2A receptor, which is involved in the hallucinogenic effect of psychedelics. The Company’s second drug candidate, NEO-002, employs low-dose psilocybin as an agonist at the 5-HT2C receptor, which controls appetite.

NeonMind established a medical services division with the goal of launching NeonMind-branded specialty mental health clinics in Canada that incorporate evidence-backed innovative treatments to address a variety of mental health needs.
