STRATHROY, ON, March 25, 2022 /CNW/ - Eve & Co Incorporated ("Eve & Co" or the "Company") (TSXV: EVE) (OTCQX: EEVVF) announces today that the Company and its subsidiaries, Natural MedCo Ltd. ("NMC") and Eve & Co International Holdings Ltd. ("Eve International" and together with Eve & Co and NMC, the "Eve Group") received an order for creditor protection (the "Initial Order") from the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (Commercial List) (the "Court") under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act (the "CCAA").

The Initial Order includes, among other things: (i) a stay of proceedings in favour of the Eve Group; (ii) approval of a debtor-in-possession loan from Deans Knight Capital Management Ltd., on behalf of its clients (the "DIP Loan"); and (iii) the appointment of BDO Canada Limited as monitor of the Eve Group (in such capacity, the "Monitor"). A copy of the Initial Order and other information will be available on the Monitor's website at: https://www.bdo.ca/en-ca/extranets/eve-co-incorporated-and-natural-medco-ltd/

The granting of the Initial Order allows the Eve Group to draw the first advance under the DIP Loan, in the amount of $1,200,000. These funds will be used to finance working capital requirements until the comeback hearing on April 1, 2022 (the "Comeback Hearing").

At the Comeback Hearing, the Eve Group will seek, among other things, the Court's approval of a sale and investment solicitation process ("SISP"). The Eve Group intends to conduct the SISP with the goal of facilitating a transaction that sees the Eve Group emerge from CCAA protection as a going concern.

The Eve Group intends to operate in the ordinary course throughout the CCAA proceedings and while conducting the SISP. Management of the Eve Group will remain responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Eve Group, under the general oversight of the Monitor. The Eve Group's day-to-day obligations to employees and key suppliers of goods and services, from and after the filing date, will continue to be met.
