July 9, 2019, Vancouver, British Columbia: NatureBank Asset Management Inc. (the “Company”) (TSX-V: COO, Frankfurt: 9EA) would like to announce it has entered into a shares for debt agreement (the “Agreement”) with a long term debt holder whereby the Company will issue 9,121,603 common shares at a deemed price of $0.10 per common share to satisfy an outstanding debt of CDN $912,603. This conversion represents approximately 50% of the outstanding debt owed to the debtholder at the time of conversion and settlement. The issuance of shares does not create a new control person in the Company. This debt settlement plan involves a cash consideration for the remaining 50% of the debt left outstanding (“Remaining Debt”), following the debt conversion, which is to be satisfied according to the following schedule:
(i) An initial payment by Naturebank to the debtholder in the sum of $221,400.00 (the “Initial Payment”);

b.50% of the Remaining Debt (less the payments made in (i) and (ii) a.;
(iii) Upon the date that is 1 year from the Initial Payment, Naturebank will pay to the debtholder 25% of the Remaining Debt and accrued interest; and
(iv) Upon the date that is 2 years from the Initial Payment, Naturebank will pay to the debtholder 25% of the Remaining Debt and accrued interest.
The Remaining Debt will, while it remains outstanding, accrue interest at a rate of 10% per annum calculated and payable monthly. NatureBank and the debtholder have been working together proactively to settle this account, which dates back to the November 2012 acquisition of Offsetters Clean Technologies Inc. and Carbon Credit Corporation by the Company from the seller. All common shares issued in connection with the Agreement will be subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and will be subject to a four-month statutory hold period, in accordance with applicable securities legislation.
