RE: Amend the 10-10-18 Letter of Intent Termination Date and the CAD$5,000,000 Subscription Agreement Purchase Dates, Purchase Amounts, the Price per Share and the Currency Conversion Rate Quote Source

 

Dear Mr. Rasouli:

 

Novo Integrated Sciences, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“NVOS”), Novo Healthnet Limited, an Ontario corporation and CannaPiece Group Inc., an Ontario corporation (“CG”), are parties to the Letter of Intent, dated 10-10-18, as attached hereto as Exhibit A (the “LOI”).

 

The purpose of this letter is to amend the LOI to:

 

  1. extend the termination date therein. As we have discussed, the “Termination Date” for all purposes under the LOI is hereby amended to be December 15, 2018, and
     
  2. define the LOI referenced CAD$5,000,000 Subscription Agreement purchase dates, amount and price per share; as follows:

 

  a. CG will purchase a Novo Integrated Sciences, Inc. USD$500,000 Subscription Agreement (“Sub-Agree #1”), at a per share price of USD$0.92 as calculated under the terms of the 10-10-18 LOI, no later than November 15, 2018.
     
  b. CG will purchase a 2nd Subscription Agreement (“Sub-Agree #2”) from NVOS no later than December 15, 2018. The full amount of Sub-Agree #2 will be determined by calculating the USD-to-CAD conversion of USD$500,000, Sub-Agree #1, and subtracting this amount from the CAD$5,000,000 Subscription Agreement total amount defined in the LOI, dated 10-10-18. The per share price of Sub-Agree #2 will be USD$0.92 as calculated under the terms of the LOI, dated 10-10-18, and

 

  3. define the source of any currency conversion as the rate quoted on x-rates.com for the date of conversion.

 

The LOI, as amended herein, shall remain in full force and effect.

 

We continue to look forward to working with you to complete the transaction successfully and expeditiously. If the foregoing correctly sets forth your understanding, please execute a copy of this Letter in the space set forth below and return to me.

Attention: Ray Rasouli

 

Re: Letter of Intent for the purchase of Novo Integrated Sciences Inc. shares and the contemplated merger of Novo Integrated Sciences Inc. and CannaPiece Group Inc.

 

This binding letter of intent (“LOI” or “Letter”), is to generally record terms and conditions of the proposed agreement whereby Novo Healthnet Limited, an Ontario corporation (“NHL”) will enter into a joint venture relationship with CannaPiece Group Inc. (“CG”), a corporation incorporated under the laws of Ontario. In addition, CG will also invest into NHL’s parent company, Novo Integrated Sciences Inc. (“NVOS”), a company incorporated in the state of Nevada whose shares are traded publicly in the OTCQB. CG and NVOS will also enter into a share exchange agreement resulting in each company having mutual interest in the other.

 

This Letter is a binding agreement between us. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties acknowledge and confirm it is their intention that this Letter will serve only as a preliminary interim agreement in relation to the matters described herein, which will apply until the Definitive Agreement (as defined below) is concluded.

 

The following paragraphs reflect our preliminary agreement with respect to the Transaction (as defined below):

 

  1. Structure: The parties intend to enter into a subscription agreement and a share exchange or other similar business arrangement (the “Transaction”) in which:

 

  i. Prior to, and as a condition of closing, CG will take the necessary and appropriate steps required to ensure that the corporation is properly registered, and all subsidiaries properly organized and identified.
     
  ii. CG will purchase through a subscription agreement five million Canadian dollars (CAD $5,000,000) in value of NVOS shares. The share price will be determined by a thirty-day closing average based on the thirty day period ending on the date of execution in counterpart of this LOI, and the application of a market acceptable discount to the determined average. In addition, CG, NHL and NVOS will enter into a share exchange arrangement whereby (a) NHL will own or control twenty five percent (25%) of all common stock of CG upon closing of the Transaction, and (b) CG will own or control twenty-five million Canadian dollars (CAD $25,000,000) worth of NVOS stock, which value shall be established by a 30-day closing average based on the thirty day period ending on the date of execution of this LOI, and the application of a market acceptable discount to the determined average. The twenty-five million Canadian dollar (CAD $25,000,000) value is based on a pre-revenue, post-licensing evaluation of CG in the amount of one hundred million Canadian dollars (CAD $100,000,000).

  iii. NVOS shall have the right to appoint one board member on the CG board of directors and CG shall have the right to appoint one board member on the NVOS board of directors.
     
  iv. CG will roll-out a clinic cannabis access program in all applicable Novo network clinics.
     
  v. CG will enter into a case conference program with applicable Novo network stakeholders.

 

  2. Due Diligence: The parties will work promptly to carry out all required due diligence in respect of the Transaction, including without limitation, the completion of standard business, legal and other inquiries and a review of applicable laws and regulations. The parties will afford each other, its employees, auditors, legal counsel, and other authorized representatives all reasonable opportunity and access during normal business hours to inspect and investigate the business and financial affairs of the other party.
     
  3. Definitive Agreement. We mutually agree to proceed reasonably and in good faith toward the negotiation and execution of definitive documentation which shall contain the terms and conditions set out in the LOI and such other terms, conditions, indemnities, representations, warranties, covenants as are customary for transactions of this nature (the “Definitive Agreement”). The parties shall cooperate in structuring the Transaction in the most effective manner having regard to applicable tax, corporate, and securities laws. Upon the execution and delivery of the Definitive Agreement, it will supersede this Letter.
     
  4. Regulatory Approvals and Contractual Consents: Each of the parties will use its commercially reasonable best efforts to obtain:

 

  i. the necessary board approvals and shareholder approvals for the Transaction prior to the execution of the Definitive Agreement; and

  5. Other Conditions. The Definitive Agreement shall include, but will not be limited to, the following terms and conditions, and this Letter is similarly subject to the following terms and conditions:

  iii. NVOS shares derived from the share exchange transaction shall be held in escrow until CG receives Licensed Producer (“LP”) status.

  vi. closing of the Transaction will be conditional upon the representations and warranties contained in the Definitive Agreement being true and correct in all material respects as of closing; and
     
  vii. no material adverse change shall have occurred in the business, assets, liabilities, results, financial condition, affairs or prospects of either party from the date hereof to the closing of the Transaction.

  7. Confidentiality: Each party agrees that, subject to compliance with applicable laws, it will keep confidential, and not release to any other person, this proposal, the contents of this Letter of Intent and any of the proprietary business, technical or other information obtained by it during its due diligence inquiries and any related negotiations.
