Curaleaf Shareholders Agree to Further Extend Lock-up

Select shareholders also agree to additional lock-up terms

WAKEFIELD, Mass., Jan. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Curaleaf Holdings, Inc. (CSE: CURA / OTCQX: CURLF) ("Curaleaf" or the "Company"), a leading vertically integrated cannabis operator in the United States, today announced that all shareholders holding individually more than 1% of Curaleaf's shares outstanding and all Cura Partners, Inc. ("Select") shareholders have agreed to an amended lock-up agreement in connection with the anticipated closing of Curaleaf's acquisition of Select (the "acquisition"). After closing, approximately 62% or 326.7 million of the Company's outstanding shares will be subject to the extended lock-up agreements.

As previously announced, the Company's largest shareholders and the Select shareholders agreed to a lock-up release schedule that provided for a quarterly release of 15% of each participant's shares. The revised lock-up agreement provides that after the close of the acquisition only 5% of each participant's holding will be released on the last day of each calendar quarter starting with March 31, 2020.

Executive Chairman Boris Jordan commented, "The amended and extended lock-up agreement signifies the continued support of our shareholders and their confidence in Curaleaf.  The revised lock-up ensures the orderly increase in the Company's freely traded shares and further reduces uncertainty regarding the release of shares. Moreover, the largest shareholders holding 71% of the currently outstanding shares have not disposed of their holdings and confirm their current intent to hold their shares despite the partial release from lock-up."
