NEW YORK , Sept. 3, 2019 /CNW/ - This news release is being disseminated as required by National Instrument 62-103 – The Early Warning System and Related Take Over Bids and Insider Reporting Issues ("NI62-103").

On August 30, 2019 JW Asset Management, LLC ("JW"), on behalf of JW Funds, (consisting of JW Partners, LP, JW Opportunities Master Fund, Ltd., and Pharmaceutical Opportunities Fund, LP 2018)  exercised an aggregate of 28,636,361 warrants to acquire 28,636.361 Proportionate Voting Shares  ("PVS")  which are convertible into  28,636,361 common shares of TerrAscend Corp.

As a result of the Transaction, JW exercises control or direction over: (a) 3,235,542 common shares of TerrAscend; (b) 63,657.890 PVS convertible into 63,657,890 common shares of TerrAscend; (c) 8,590,908 warrants to acquire 8,590.908 PVS (convertible into 8,590,908 common shares); and (d) 1,000,000 options to acquire 1,000,000 common shares of which 1/3 have vested as of the date hereof, representing 6.1% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the TerrAscend (60.3% on a partially diluted basis) and 90.5% of the issued and outstanding PVS (91.5% on a partially diluted basis).
