As consideration for providing the Loan and pursuant to TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) Policy 5.1 – Loans, Loan Bonuses, Finder’s Fees and Commissions, upon closing of the Loan Agreement the Lender will receive 300,000 bonus warrants to purchase common shares of JWC (the “Bonus Warrants”).

We have come to rely on their expertise in constructing world class cannabis cultivation facilities, and this further show of support from Ball Construction will serve to enhance their involvement in JWC’s success moving forward, while allowing JWC to further accelerate the addition of newly constructed cultivation spaces.”
