Notice to U.S. Holders of Aphria Shares
Green Growth has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) a Registration Statement on Form F-10 (the “Registration Statement”) under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (together with the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, the “U.S. Securities Act”) pursuant to the multi-jurisdictional disclosure system adopted by the United States, a Tender Offer Statement on Schedule 14D-1F (the “Tender Offer Statement”) under the United States Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (together with the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, the “U.S. Exchange Act”), and other documents and information. Green Growth is a foreign private issuer and permitted to prepare the offer to purchase and takeover bid circular and related documents in accordance with Canadian disclosure requirements, which are different from those of the United States.

The enforcement by Aphria Shareholders of civil liabilities under U.S. federal securities laws may be affected adversely by the fact that Green Growth was amalgamated under the laws of Ontario, and Aphria was amalgamated under the laws of Ontario, some or all of their respective officers and directors may be residents of a foreign country, some or all of the experts named in the Tender Offer Statement and Registration Statement may be residents of a foreign country, and all or a substantial portion of the assets of Green Growth and Aphria and said persons may be located outside the United States.

NEITHER THE SEC NOR ANY STATE SECURITIES REGULATOR HAS OR WILL HAVE APPROVED OR DISAPPROVED OF THE OFFER, OR HAS OR WILL HAVE DETERMINED IF ANY DOCUMENTS RELATING TO THE OFFER ARE TRUTHFUL OR COMPLETE. ANY REPRESENTATION TO THE CONTRARY IS A CRIMINAL OFFENSE.
