Not for distribution in the U.S. or to U.S. newswire services. TORONTO, March 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Further to the press release dated December 21, 2020, Next Hydrogen Corporation (“Next Hydrogen” or the "Company") and BioHep Technologies Ltd. (“BioHep”), are pleased to announce that, further to their letter of intent dated December 21, 2020, Next Hydrogen and BioHep have entered into a definitive amalgamation agreement dated March 3, 2021 (the “Amalgamation Agreement”), pursuant to which Next Hydrogen and a newly-formed subsidiary of BioHep will amalgamate to form a subsidiary of BioHep (“Amalco”) and the shareholders of Next Hydrogen will receive common shares of BioHep (the “Transaction”). Upon completion of the Transaction, it is the intention of the parties that BioHep (the “Resulting Issuer”) will continue on the business of Next Hydrogen. Closing of the Transaction is conditional on, among other things, BioHep completing the Arrangement (as defined below), the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”) approving the listing of the common shares of the Resulting Issuer (“Resulting Issuer Shares”) and other customary conditions. In connection with the Transaction, Next Hydrogen has engaged National Bank Financial Inc. (“NBF”) and TD Securities Inc. (“TD”, together with NBF, the “Active Bookrunners”) as active bookrunners on behalf of a syndicate of agents, including Echelon Wealth Partners Inc. as a passive bookrunner (collectively, the "Agents"), to act as agent on a best efforts basis in connection with a brokered private placement offering of subscription receipts ("Subscription Receipts") of Finco for gross proceeds of up to $50,000,000 (the "Concurrent Financing"). The Concurrent Financing will be priced in the context of the market. The net proceeds of the Concurrent Financing will be used to further develop the Company’s products, hire additional team members, conduct research and development, repay certain indebtedness of the Company and for general corporate purposes. Under the terms of the Concurrent Financing, the Agents will be granted an over-allotment option to place up to an additional 15% of the number of Subscription Receipts issuable under the Concurrent Financing. Raveel Afzaal, President & CEO stated, “Next Hydrogen’s large IP portfolio was developed by proven experts in water electrolysis. Water electrolysis is the only way to generate green hydrogen which is expected to represent 25% of all energy consumption by 2050. This is a significant market opportunity that will continue to grow globally and there are less than ten notable water electrolysis companies to service this need. Our revolutionary electrolyzer design is purpose built for integration with renewable energy sources and allows for higher current densities, dynamic response and scalability. This financing is expected to accelerate our product development and help drive wide-scale adoption of our green hydrogen solutions to cost-effectively decarbonize the very large industrial and transportation sectors.” Summary of the Transaction and Concurrent Financing The Amalgamation Agreement provides for, among other things, a three cornered amalgamation (the “Amalgamation”) pursuant to which (i) Next Hydrogen and a newly-formed subsidiary of BioHep (“Finco”) will amalgamate pursuant to the provisions of the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) to form Amalco; (ii) all of the outstanding common shares of Next Hydrogen (“Next Hydrogen Shares”) will be cancelled and in consideration therefore holders thereof will receive Resulting Issuer Shares on the basis of one Resulting Issuer Share for every one common share of Next Hydrogen (the “Exchange Ratio”); (iii) all of the outstanding common shares of Finco (“Finco Shares”) will be cancelled and in consideration therefore holders thereof will receive Resulting Issuer Shares based on the Exchange Ratio; and (iv) Amalco will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Resulting Issuer. After giving effect to the Amalgamation, the prior shareholders of Next Hydrogen will collectively exercise control over the Resulting Issuer. Pursuant to the Amalgamation, all securities of Next Hydrogen convertible into Next Hydrogen Shares will cease to represent a right to acquire Next Hydrogen Shares and will provide for the right to acquire the same number of Resulting Issuer Shares at the same exercise price per share, reflecting the Exchange Ratio. The gross proceeds (less 50% of the agents’ commissions and any expenses incurred by the agents at closing of the Concurrent Financing) (the “Escrowed Proceeds”) from the Concurrent Financing will be held in escrow pending the completion of the Transaction which is expected to close on or about April 15, 2021. If all conditions to the completion of the Transaction are satisfied on or before the date that is 90 days from the closing of the Concurrent Financing or such later date as may be agreed to by the Agents and the Company (the “Escrow Deadline”), the net proceeds from the sale of the Subscription Receipts will be released from escrow to the Resulting Issuer and each Subscription Receipt will be exchanged through a series of steps under the Amalgamation for one Resulting Issuer Share. If the Transaction is not completed on or before the Escrow Deadline or is terminated at an earlier time, then the Escrowed Proceeds (plus accrued interest) for the Subscription Receipts will be returned to subscribers on a pro rata basis. To the extent that the Escrowed Proceeds (plus accrued interest) are not sufficient to satisfy the subscription price paid each subscriber, the Company will contribute such amounts as are necessary to satisfy the shortfall. Closing of the Concurrent Financing is expected to occur during the week of April 5, 2021 and is subject to customary conditions and regulatory approvals. Prior to completion of the Amalgamation, it is intended that BioHep will complete an arrangement pursuant to Section 288 of the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) (the “Arrangement”), which will result in the spin-out of certain assets and liabilities of BioHep into a newly incorporated subsidiary of BioHep. Completion of the Amalgamation is also subject to BioHep consolidating its outstanding common shares on the basis of one post-consolidation share (“BioHep Post-Consolidation Shares”) for every 13.3 pre-consolidation shares (the “Consolidation”) and to BioHep changing its name to “Next Hydrogen Solutions Inc.” or such other name as BioHep and Next Hydrogen may determine (the “Name Change”). The parties to the Transaction act at arm’s length and therefore the approval of the shareholders of BioHep in respect of the Transaction will not be required. However, BioHep will hold an annual general and special meeting of its shareholders on April 12, 2021, whereat, among other things, the shareholders of BioHep will be asked to approve (i) the Arrangement; (ii) the Consolidation; (iii) the change of name of BioHep to “Next Hydrogen Solutions Inc.” (the “Name Change”) or such other name as BioHep and Next Hydrogen may determine; (iv) the appointment of a new slate of directors, conditional upon completion of the Transaction; and (v) the approval of BioHep’s fixed 20% stock option plan (collectively, the “BioHep Meeting Matters”). The completion of the Transaction is subject to, among others, the following conditions: (a) a special majority of the shareholders of Next Hydrogen shall have approved the Amalgamation Agreement; (b) BioHep shall have received all of the necessary shareholder and regulatory approvals, as applicable, to complete the BioHep Meeting Matters; (c) BioHep shall have completed the Consolidation, the Name Change and the Arrangement; (d) the Resulting Issuer Shares shall have been conditionally approved for listing on the Exchange; (e) all other consents, orders and approvals relating to the Amalgamation shall have been obtained; (f) the Amalgamation Agreement shall not have been terminated; (g) dissent rights shall not have been exercised with respect to the Amalgamation by the shareholders of Next Hydrogen; (h) the Exchange shall have granted an exemption from the Exchange’s sponsorship requirement or a sponsor shall have filed an acceptable sponsor’s report with the exchange; (i) there shall be prospectus exemptions available for the Amalgamation under applicable securities laws of the United States for any BioHep Post-Consolidation Shares to be issued in the United States; and (j) there shall not be in force any order restraining or enjoining the transactions contemplated by the Amalgamation Agreement. The terms and conditions of the Transaction may be based on the Company’s due diligence and the receipt of tax, corporate and securities law advice for both the Company and BioHep.

Biofortification of micronutrients for a range of agricultural crops has become a key approach for boosting their nutritional profile as well as in increasing the disease-resistance in plants. This also assists in biological growth of the plants. Fortification through manganese, iron, and zinc has helped agriculturists and food companies develop foods rich in micronutrients. The growing trend of biofortification in mungbean, wheat, maize, potato, and sweet potatoes has helped boost the valuation of the agricultural micronutrients market. The trend has gathered paced on the back of growing micronutrients' deficiency on human health especially among the women and pre-school children. Countries with incessant focus on boosting the agriculture sector such as India are witnessing large-scale food fortification to meet the needs of cereal-based nutrition for the populations.
