Holy Cow! Announces Closing of IPO and Listing on NEO Exchange

About The Project

Holy Cow Foods Inc. (NEO:HOLY) ("Holy Cow" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed its initial public offering (the "Offering") of units of the Company (each, a "Unit") at a price of $0.50 (the "Offering Price") per Unit for gross proceeds of $1,838,500. Pursuant to the agency agreement dated December 14, 2021 (the "Agency Agreement"), Research Capital Corporation (the "Agent") acted as sole agent in respect of the Offering.

Details of the Offering

The Offering was completed pursuant to the Company’s long-form final prospectus dated December 14, 2021 (the “Prospectus“) and filed with the securities commissions in the Provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, and Ontario, a copy of which is available under the Company’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company (a “Common Share“) and one half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant“). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Common Share (a “Warrant Share“) at an exercise price of $0.75 per Warrant Share until March 14, 2024.

In connection with the Agent’s services under the Agency Agreement, the Agent received a cash commission of $147,080, being 8% of the gross proceeds from the Offering, and 294,160 compensation options (the “Agent’s Options“), being 8% of the number of Units sold under the Offering, in addition to a corporate finance fee and reimbursement of certain expenses. Each Agent’s Option is exercisable into one unit of the Company having the same terms as a Unit at an exercise price of $0.50 until March 14, 2024.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering as disclosed in the Prospectus for, among other things: increasing sales and expanding production of the Company’s products; developing the Company’s commissary kitchen business; general and administrative costs; covering expenses related to the Offerings; and general working capital.

NEO Listing

The Company is also pleased to announce that it has received final approval to list the Common Shares on the NEO Exchange Inc. (the “NEO“) and is expected to trade under the symbol “HOLY“.

Paul Rivas, the CEO of Holy Cow, stated: “The completion of our IPO and listing on the NEO Exchange, Canada’s leading-edge stock exchange, is a major milestone in Holy Cow’s mission to revolutionize the food industry. Holy Cow’s goal is to be a leader in the transitional segment of the plant-based foods market, as well as a cornerstone of the food and restaurant industry with our ghost kitchen, commissary kitchen, and private label co-packing and manufacturing offerings, and the completion of our IPO will allow us to make strides towards those goals. We are thrilled to grow our brand and the original concept of offering comprehensive services to the food industry under one roof, and we are particularly excited to do so with the NEO Exchange.
