Re: iFresh Inc.

 

Ladies and Gentlemen:

 

Reference is made to the registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-224141) (the “Registration Statement”) filed by iFresh Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”), which Registration Statement was declared effective by the Commission on April 25, 2018. We are rendering this opinion in connection with the prospectus supplement dated July 11, 2018 by the Company with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424 under the Act (the “Prospectus Supplement”). The Prospectus Supplement relates to the offering and sale by the Company of 95,910 shares of the Company’s common stock, $0.0001 par value per share (the “Shares”). The Shares will be issued pursuant to a Common Stock Purchase Agreement dated July 11, 2018 by and among the Company and the purchaser named therein (the “Purchase Agreement”). We understand that the Shares are to be offered and sold in the manner described in the Registration Statement and the Prospectus Supplement.

 

We have acted as securities counsel for the Company in connection with the preparation of the Registration Statement and Prospectus Supplement. In connection therewith, we have reviewed (a) the Registration Statement; (b) the Prospectus Supplement; (c) the Purchase Agreement (d) the Company’s Articles of Incorporation, as amended; and (e) the Company's Bylaws..

 

In rendering our opinions set forth below, we have reviewed such corporate documents and records of the Company, such certificates of public officials and such other matters as we have deemed necessary or appropriate for purposes of this opinion letter. As to facts material to the opinions expressed herein, we have relied upon oral and written statements and representations of officers and other representatives of the Company. We also have assumed (a) the authenticity of all documents submitted to us as originals; (b) the conformity to the originals of all documents submitted to us as copies; (c) the genuineness of all signatures; (d) the legal capacity of natural persons; and (e) the truth, accuracy and completeness of the information, factual matters, representations and warranties contained in all of such documents.

 

Based upon such examination, and subject to the further assumptions, qualifications and limitations contained herein, it is our opinion that the Shares have been duly authorized and, when such Shares are issued and paid for in accordance with the terms of the Purchase Agreement and the Prospectus Supplement, will be validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable.
