MYM Appoints Mr. Frank Klees, Former Ontario Cabinet Minister, to Advisory Board

MYM Nutraceuticals Inc., appointed Mr. Frank Klees to the Advisory Board of the Company. Mr. Frank Klees will serve as an advisor to the Company as part of the Company’s stated mission to pursue, build and develop all cannabis related opportunities in the province of Ontario.

“I am looking forward to working with the MYM Nutraceutical team as they position the company to participate in the opportunity presented by Ontario’s announcement that once legalized, cannabis products will be distributed through a private sector retail network,” said Klees. “Of paramount importance to the success of that business model is ensuring that participating companies have the experience and the integrity to ensure that the highest standards of quality assurance are met.”

Mr. Klees’s extensive experience and track record in government and the private sector makes him an ideal strategic advisor to the Company at this stage of its development. Mr. Klees served five terms as a Progressive Conservative Member of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario from 1995 to 2014. He served in various senior positions including Minister of Transportation, Minister of Tourism, Chief Government Whip, Deputy House Leader, Vice Chair of the Select Committee on the Proposed Transaction of the TMX Group and the London Stock Exchange Group. Over the course of 19 years as an elected politician, Mr. Klees established strong and trusted working relationships with all levels of government.

Mr. Klees has extensive business experience in the energy sector, financial services and real estate development. He was a co-founder and Executive Vice President of Municipal Gas Corporation, served as Corporate Director and Member of the Audit and Governance Committees of Universal Energy Ltd. and has been a member of the Supervisory Board of Rockwool North America since 2003. Mr. Klees is a Senior Advisor to numerous public and private enterprises and provides business development, government relations and strategic planning advisory services.

“We are excited to welcome Mr. Klees to the Company’s advisory board,” said Rob Gietl, CEO of MYM. “His decades of navigating the political landscape in Ontario will be of great value to MYM shareholders when it comes to doing business with the various levels of government in that province. In the coming years, the cannabis business in Canada will be rife with competition, having Mr. Klees join us at this early stage will ensure that MYM will be competitive in Canada’s most populous province.”

Subject to compliance with all applicable laws and the rules of the Canadian Securities Exchange, MYM will grant to Klees 500,000 options to purchase MYM common shares. The Stock Options will have an exercise price of $1.25 and expire on August 17, 2020. They will vest as follows: 250,000 of the Stock Options will vest immediately with the remaining 250,000 Stock Options vesting quarterly beginning October 1, 2018.
