The Bridge Facility permits the Company to draw a certain amount of the gross face value of eligible invoices and the Demand Facility permits the Company to draw up to $6.5 million at a 9% interest rate above the Bank of Montreal prime rate. The Company may repay the Demand Facility at any time without penalty. The Company has granted security over its assets in connection with the Facility, and is subject to certain restrictive covenants under the Facility.

The proceeds under the Facility are expected to be used for repayment of an outstanding convertible debenture and related interest, Indiva's facility expansion, capital purchases of extraction and encapsulation equipment, as well as bulk biomass purchases and general working capital.
As laws permit, Indiva will deliver its award-winning portfolio of products to Canadian consumers including Bhang™ Chocolate. Indiva will also make Ruby® Cannabis Sugar, Sapphire™ Cannabis Salt, and Ruby® Gems available in early 2020.
