The Planting Hope Company Inc.

CHICAGO, IL and VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / May 2, 2024 / The Planting Hope Company Inc. (TSXV:MYLK)(OTCQB:MYLKF)(FRA:J94) ("Planting Hope " or the "Company") is pleased to announce that, further to its news release dated April 26, 2024, the British Columbia Securities Commission, as principal regulator, has granted the Company a management cease trade order ("MCTO") in respect of its delay in filing its audited annual financial statements, management's discussion and analysis, and related certifications, all for the year ended December 31, 2023 (collectively, the "Annual Filings").

The MCTO prohibits the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of the Company from trading in the securities of the Company for so long as the Annual filings are not filed. During this period, the Company has also undertaken not to, directly or indirectly, issue or acquire securities from an insider or employee of the Company.

The MCTO does not affect the ability of shareholders who are not insiders of the Company to trade their securities of the Company.

The Company will issue a news release announcing completion of filing of the Annual Filings at such time as they are completed and filed. Until the Company files the Annual Filings, it will comply with the alternative information guidelines set out in under National Policy 12-203 - Cease Trade Orders for Continuous Disclosure Defaults ("NP 12-203"), including issuing bi- weekly default status reports by way of news releases, which will be filed on SEDAR+.
