INFORMATION CIRCULAR

as at February 9, 2018 (except as otherwise indicated)

This Information Circular is furnished in connection with the solicitation of proxies by the management of Century Financial Capital Group Inc. for use at the annual general and special meeting (the “Meeting”) of its shareholders to be held on March 15, 2018 at the time and place and for the purposes set forth in the accompanying notice of the Meeting.

In this Information Circular, references to “the Company”, “we” and “our” refer to Century Financial Capital Group Inc. “Common Shares” means common shares in the capital of the Company. “Beneficial Shareholders” means shareholders who do not hold Common Shares in their own name and “intermediaries” refers to brokers, investment firms, clearing houses and similar entities that own securities on behalf of Beneficial Shareholders.

GENERAL PROXY INFORMATION

Solicitation of Proxies

The solicitation of proxies will be primarily by mail, but proxies may be solicited personally or by telephone by directors, officers and regular employees of the Company. The Company will bear all costs of this solicitation. We have arranged for intermediaries to forward the meeting materials to beneficial owners of the Common Shares held of record by those intermediaries and we may reimburse the intermediaries for their reasonable fees and disbursements in that regard.

Appointment of Proxyholders

The individuals named in the accompanying form of proxy (the “Proxy”) are officers and/or directors of the Company. If you are a shareholder entitled to vote at the Meeting, you have the right to appoint a person or company other than either of the persons designated in the Proxy, who need not be a shareholder, to attend and act for you and on your behalf at the Meeting. You may do so either by inserting the name of that other person in the blank space provided in the Proxy or by completing and delivering another suitable form of proxy.

Voting by Proxyholder

The persons named in the Proxy will vote or withhold from voting the Common Shares represented thereby in accordance with your instructions on any ballot that may be called for. If you specify a choice with respect to any matter to be acted upon, your Common Shares will be voted accordingly. The Proxy confers discretionary authority on the persons named therein with respect to:

(a) each matter or group of matters identified therein for which a choice is not specified, other than the appointment of an auditor and the election of directors,

(b) any amendment to or variation of any matter identified therein, and

(c) any other matter that properly comes before the Meeting.

In respect of a matter for which a choice is not specified in the Proxy, the persons named in the Proxy will vote the Common Shares represented by the Proxy for the approval of such matter.


Registered Shareholders

Registered Shareholders may wish to vote by proxy whether or not they are able to attend the Meeting in person. Registered Shareholders electing to submit a proxy must complete, date and sign the enclosed form of proxy and return it to the Company’s transfer agent, Heritage Transfer Agency Inc. (“Heritage”), by fax at (416) 864-0175, or by mail or by hand to the Victory Building, 501- 80 Richmond Street West, Toronto, ON M5H 2A4.

In either case you must ensure the proxy is received at least 48 hours (excluding Saturdays, Sundays and statutory holidays) before the Meeting or the adjournment thereof. Failure to complete or deposit a proxy properly may result in its invalidation. The time limit for the deposit of proxies may be waived by the Company’s board of directors (the “Board”) at its discretion without notice. Please note that in order to vote your Common Shares in person at the Meeting, you must attend the Meeting and register with the Scrutineer before the Meeting. If you have already submitted a Proxy, but choose to change your method of voting and attend the Meeting to vote, then you should register with the Scrutineer before the Meeting and inform them that your previously submitted proxy is revoked and that you personally will vote your Common Shares at the Meeting.

Beneficial Shareholders

The following information is of significant importance to shareholders who do not hold Common Shares in their own name. Beneficial Shareholders should note the only proxies that can be recognized and acted upon at the Meeting are those deposited by registered shareholders (those whose names appear on the records of the Company as the registered holders of Common Shares) or as set out in the following disclosure.

If Common Shares are listed in an account statement provided to a shareholder by a broker, then in almost all cases those Common Shares will not be registered in the shareholder’s name on the records of the Company. Such Common Shares will more likely be registered under the name of the shareholder’s broker or an agent of that broker. In Canada, the vast majority of such Common Shares are registered under the name of CDS & Co. (the registration name for The Canadian Depository for Securities Limited, which acts as nominee for many Canadian brokerage firms), and in the United States of America (the “U.S.” or the “United States”) the vast majority of such Common Shares are registered under the name of Cede & Co. as nominee for The Depository Trust Company (which acts as depository for many U.S. brokerage firms and custodian banks).

Intermediaries are required to seek voting instructions from Beneficial Shareholders in advance of shareholders’ meetings. Every intermediary has its own mailing procedures and provides its own return instructions to clients.

There are two kinds of Beneficial Shareholders - those who object to their name being made known to the issuers of securities which they own (called “OBOs” for “Objecting Beneficial Owners”) and those who do not object to the issuers of the securities they own knowing who they are (called “NOBOs” for “Non- Objecting Beneficial Owners”).

These securityholder materials are sent to both registered and non-registered (beneficial) owners of the securities of the Company. If you are a non-registered owner, and the Company or its agent sent these materials directly to you, your name, address and information about your holdings of securities, were obtained in accordance with applicable securities regulatory requirements from the intermediary holding securities on your behalf.

Beneficial Shareholders who are OBOs should follow the instructions of their intermediary carefully to ensure that their Common Shares are voted at the Meeting.

- 4 -


The form of proxy supplied to you by your broker will be similar to the proxy provided to registered shareholders by the Company. However, its purpose is limited to instructing the intermediary on how to vote on your behalf. Most brokers now delegate responsibility for obtaining instructions from clients to Broadridge Financial Solutions Inc. (“Broadridge”) in Canada and in the United States. Broadridge mails a Voting Instruction Form (“VIF”) in lieu of a proxy provided by the Company. The VIF will name the same persons as the Company’s Proxy to represent you at the Meeting. You have the right to appoint a person (who need not be a Beneficial Shareholder of the Company), different from the persons designated in the VIF, to represent your Common Shares at the Meeting, and that person may be you. To exercise this right insert the name of your desired representative (which may be you) in the blank space provided in the VIF. Once you have completed and signed your VIF return it to Broadridge by mail or facsimile, or deliver your voting instructions to Broadridge by phone or via the internet, in accordance with Broadridge’s instructions. Broadridge tabulates the results of all instructions received and provides appropriate instructions respecting the voting of Common Shares to be represented at the Meeting. If you receive a VIF from Broadridge, it must be completed and returned to Broadridge, in accordance with Broadridge’s instructions, well in advance of the Meeting in order to: (a) have your Common Shares voted at the Meeting as per your instructions; or (b) have an alternate representative chosen by you duly appointed to attend and vote your Common Shares at the Meeting.

Notice to Shareholders in the United States

The solicitation of proxies involves securities of an issuer located in Canada and is being effected in accordance with the corporate laws of the Province of Ontario, Canada and securities laws of the provinces of Canada. The proxy solicitation rules under the United States Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, are not applicable to the Company or this solicitation, and this solicitation has been prepared in accordance with the disclosure requirements of the securities laws of the provinces of Canada. Shareholders should be aware that disclosure requirements under the securities laws of the provinces of Canada differ from the disclosure requirements under United States securities laws.

The enforcement by Shareholders of civil liabilities under United States federal securities laws may be affected adversely by the fact that the Company is incorporated under the Business Corporations Act (Ontario), as amended, certain of its directors and its executive officers are residents of Canada and a substantial portion of its assets and the assets of such persons are located outside the United States. Shareholders may not be able to sue a foreign company or its officers or directors in a foreign court for violations of United States federal securities laws. It may be difficult to compel a foreign company and its officers and directors to subject themselves to a judgment by a United States court.

Revocation of Proxies

A shareholder may revoke a proxy by (i) depositing an instrument in writing, executed by such shareholder or his or her attorney authorized in writing, or, if the shareholder is a corporation, under its corporate seal or signed by a duly authorized officer or attorney for such corporation; (ii) transmitting, by telephonic or electronic means, a revocation executed by such shareholder or his or her authorized attorney, by electronic signature, if the means of electronic signature permits a reliable determination that the document was created or communicated by or on behalf of the shareholder or the attorney, as the case may be; or (iii) in any other manner permitted by law:

(a) at the registered office of the Company at any time up to and including the last business day preceding the day of the Meeting, or any adjournment of the Meeting, at which the proxy is to be used; or

(b) with the Chair of the Meeting on the day of the Meeting or any adjournment of the Meeting.

INTEREST OF CERTAIN PERSONS OR COMPANIES IN MATTERS TO BE ACTED UPON

No director or executive officer of the Company, or any person who has held such a position since the beginning of the last completed financial year of the Company, nor any nominee for election as a director of the Company, nor any associate or affiliate of the foregoing persons, has any substantial or material interest, direct or indirect, by way of beneficial ownership of securities or otherwise, in any matter to be acted on at the Meeting other than the election of directors and as may be set out herein.

VOTING SECURITIES AND PRINCIPAL HOLDERS OF VOTING SECURITIES

The Board has fixed February 5, 2018 as the record date (the “Record Date”) for determining persons entitled to receive notice of the Meeting. Only shareholders of record (the “Shareholders”) at the close of business on the Record Date who either attend the Meeting personally or complete, sign and deliver a form of proxy in the manner and subject to the provisions described above will be entitled to vote or to have their Common Shares voted at the Meeting.

As of the Record Date, there were 54,230,732 Common Shares without par value issued and outstanding, each carrying the right to one vote. No group of shareholders has the right to elect a specified number of directors, nor are there cumulative or similar voting rights attached to the Common Shares. The Company is also authorized to issue an unlimited number of non-voting Class A Preference Shares and non-voting Class B Preference Shares, both without par value. As at the Record Date, there were no Class A Preference Shares or Class B Preference Shares issued and outstanding.

To the knowledge of the directors and executive officers of the Company, there are no persons or corporations who beneficially owned, directly or indirectly, or exercised control or direction over, Common Shares carrying more than 10% of the voting rights attached to all outstanding Common Shares of the Company as at the Record Date.

VOTES NECESSARY TO PASS RESOLUTIONS

A simple majority of affirmative votes cast at the Meeting is required to pass the ordinary resolutions described herein. If there are more nominees for election as directors or appointment of the Company’s auditor than there are vacancies to fill, those nominees receiving the greatest number of votes will be elected or appointed, as the case may be, until all such vacancies have been filled. If the number of nominees for election or appointment is equal to the number of vacancies to be filled, all such nominees will be declared elected or appointed by acclamation. At least two-thirds of affirmative votes cast at the Meeting are required to pass the special resolutions described herein.

ELECTION OF DIRECTORS

The Company’s current Articles provide that the Board of Directors shall consist of a minimum of three (3) Directors and a maximum of eleven (11) Directors, as determined by the Board from time to time. The Board presently consists of three (3) Directors, namely Yaron Conforti, Harry Bregman, and Gord Wilton (the “Century Directors”).

At the Meeting, the Century Directors will be proposed for re-election to hold office until the earlier of the next annual meeting of the Company or the completion of the Company’s proposed business combination with FV Pharma Inc. (“FV Pharma”) by way of three-cornered amalgamation (the “Proposed Transaction”), as described in the Company’s news release dated January 16, 2018.

At the Meeting, Shareholders of the Company will also be asked to fix, conditional upon, and effective as of the completion of the Proposed Transaction, the number of directors of the Company at five (5), and to elect, conditional upon and effective as of the completion of the Proposed Transaction, the directors of the Company to hold offices until the next annual meeting of the Company’s Shareholders. If the Proposed Transaction is completed, it will be desirable to increase the size of the Board (the “Resulting Issuer Board”) from three (3) directors to five (5) directors and to elect five (5) members to the expanded Resulting Issuer Board (the “Resulting Issuer Directors”), including three nominees currently affiliated with FV Pharma (as described more particularly below) (the “FV Pharma Nominees”), with the Resulting Issuer Directors to take office upon completion of the Proposed Transaction. At the time of the Meeting, the Proposed Transaction will not yet have been completed.

- 6 -


It is proposed that the Resulting Issuer Directors will consist of two (2) Century Directors, being Yaron Conforti and Harry Bregman, and three (3) FV Pharma Nominees, consisting of Thomas Fairfull, Zeeshan Saeed and Donal Carroll, who will succeed the Century Directors upon completion of the Proposed Transaction. Following completion of the Proposed Transaction, each of Yaron Conforti and Harry Bregman are also expected to resign as Resulting Issuer Directors and be replaced with additional nominees to be determined by FV Pharma or the Resulting Issuer Board.

The Company’s Shareholders will be able to vote in favour of, or withhold from voting, separately for each of the Resulting Issuer Directors. If elected, such nominees will take office upon the completion of the Proposed Transaction and assuming the election of the aforementioned directors, each of the Century Directors will resign as directors of the Company. If the Proposed Transaction is not completed, the Century Directors will remain as directors of the Company and the number of directors shall remain at three (3).

The management representatives designated in the form of proxy (or voting instruction form, as applicable) will vote or withhold from voting the Common Shares in respect of which they are appointed by proxy in the election of the nominees for director in accordance with the instructions of the shareholder as indicated on the proxy. In the absence of such instructions, such Common Shares will be voted FOR the election of the Century Directors and the Resulting Issuer Directors.

Management does not contemplate that any of the proposed nominees will be unable to serve as a director but, if that should occur for any reason before the Meeting, the management representatives designated in the form of proxy (or voting instruction form, as applicable) reserve the right to vote for another nominee at their discretion. Each Resulting Issuer Director elected will hold office from and after the completion of the Proposed Transaction until the Company’s next annual meeting or until his successor is elected or appointed. The Century Directors have agreed to resign from the Board with effect as of the completion of the Proposed Transaction. See below for detailed information on the Century Directors and the FV Pharma Nominees under the corresponding headings.

The resignation of Schwartz Levitsky Feldman and the appointment of Dale Matheson Carr-Hilton Labonte was approved by the Board of the Company. At the Meeting, shareholders will be asked to ratify the appointment of Dale Matheson Carr-Hilton Labonte as auditor for the ensuing year, at a remuneration to be fixed by the directors.

A reporting package consisting of a Notice of Change of Auditor and a letter from each of the predecessor and successor auditor has been filed with the requisite securities regulatory authorities on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and is attached as Schedule “B” to this Information Circular.

Unless otherwise directed, the persons named in the enclosed form of proxy intend to vote FOR the appointment of Dale Matheson Carr-Hilton Labonte LLP, Chartered Professional Accountants, as auditor of the Company until the close of the next annual general meeting.

AUDIT COMMITTEE AND RELATIONSHIP WITH AUDITOR

The Company is a venture issuer as defined under National Instrument 52-110 – Audit Committees (“NI 52- 110”) and each venture issuer is required to disclose annually in its information circular certain information concerning the constitution of its Audit Committee and its relationship with its independent auditor, as set forth below.

The Audit Committee’s Charter

A copy of the Company’s Audit Committee Charter is attached as Schedule “C” hereto. The Audit Committee Charter was adopted by the Board on February 9, 2018.

Composition of the Audit Committee

The current Audit Committee members are Gord Wilton, Harry Bregman, and Yaron Conforti. Mr. Wilton and Mr. Bregman are independent, but Mr. Conforti is not independent as he is the President, CEO and CFO of the Company. All Audit Committee members are considered to be financially literate.

A member of the Audit Committee is independent if the member has no direct or indirect material relationship with the Company. A material relationship means a relationship which could, in the Board’s reasonable opinion, interfere with the exercise of a member’s independent judgement.

A member of the Audit Committee is considered financially literate if he or she has the ability to read and understand a set of financial statements presenting a breadth and level of complexity of accounting issues generally comparable to the breadth and complexity of issues one can reasonably expect to be raised by the Company.

Relevant Education and Experience

Each member of the Company’s Audit Committee has adequate education and experience relevant to their performance as an Audit Committee member and, in particular, the requisite education and experience that provides the member with:

(a) an understanding of the accounting principles used by the Company to prepare its financial statements and the ability to assess the general application of those principles in connection with estimates, accruals and reserves;

(b) experience preparing, auditing, analyzing or evaluating financial statements that present a breadth and level of complexity of accounting issues that are generally comparable to the breadth and complexity of issues that can reasonably be expected to be raised by the Company’s financial statements or experience actively supervising individuals engaged in such activities; and

- 10 -


(c) an understanding of internal controls and procedures for financial reporting.

Audit Committee Oversight

The Audit Committee has not made any recommendations to the Board to nominate or compensate any auditor other than Dale Matheson Carr-Hilton Labonte LLP.

Reliance on Certain Exemptions

The Company’s current auditor, Dale Matheson Carr-Hilton Labonte LLP, has not provided any material non-audit services. At no time since the commencement of the Company's two most recently completed financial years has the Company relied on the exemption in Section 2.4 of NI 52-110 (De Minimis Non- Audit Services), or an exemption from NI 52-110, in whole or in part, granted under Part 8 (Exemptions).

Pre-Approval Policies and Procedures

The Audit Committee has not adopted specific policies and procedures for the engagement of non-audit services.

External Auditor Service Fees

The Audit Committee has reviewed the nature and amount of the non-audit services provided by Dale Matheson Carr-Hilton Labonte LLP to the Company to ensure auditor independence. Fees incurred with Dale Matheson Carr-Hilton Labonte LLP for audit and non-audit services in the last two fiscal years are outlined in the following table:

CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

General

National Instrument 58-101 - Disclosure of Corporate Governance Practices ("NI 58-101") requires issuers to disclose their corporate governance practices and National Policy 58-201 – Corporate Governance Guidelines ("NP 58-201") provides guidance on corporate governance practices. This section sets out the Company’s approach to corporate governance and addresses the Company's compliance with NI 58-101.

Corporate governance refers to the policies and structure of the board of directors of a company, whose members are elected by and are accountable to the company’s shareholders. Corporate governance encourages establishing a reasonable degree of independence of the board of directors from executive management and the adoption of policies to ensure the board of directors recognizes the principles of good management. The Board is committed to sound corporate governance practices as such practices are both in the interests of shareholders and help to contribute to effective and efficient decision-making.

Board of Directors

Directors are considered to be independent if they have no direct or indirect material relationship with the Company. A “material relationship” is a relationship which could, in the Board’s opinion, be reasonably expected to interfere with the exercise of a director’s independent judgment.

The Board facilitates its independent supervision over management of the Company through frequent meetings of the Board at which members of management or non-independent directors are not in attendance and by retaining independent consultants where it deems necessary.

Management is delegated the responsibility for meeting defined corporate objectives, implementing approved strategic and operating plans, carrying on the Company's business in the ordinary course, managing cash flow, evaluating new business opportunities, recruiting staff and complying with applicable regulatory requirements. The Board facilitates its independent supervision over management by reviewing and approving long-term strategic, business and capital plans, material contracts and business transactions, and all debt and equity financing transactions. Through its Audit Committee, the Board examines the effectiveness of the Company's internal control processes and management information systems. The Board reviews executive compensation and recommends stock option grants.

The independent members of the Board are Harry Bregman and Gord Wilton. Yaron Conforti is not independent as he is an officer of the Company.

Directorships

None of the members of the Board are currently serving on boards of directors of other reporting companies (or equivalent).

Orientation and Continuing Education

When new directors are appointed, they receive orientation, commensurate with their previous experience, on the Company's properties, business, technology and industry and on the responsibilities of directors.

Board meetings may also include presentations by the Company's management and employees to give the directors additional insight into the Company's business.

- 12 -


Ethical Business Conduct

The Board has found that the fiduciary duties placed on individual directors by the Company's governing corporate legislation and the common law and the restrictions placed by applicable corporate legislation on an individual director's participation in decisions of the Board in which the director has an interest have been sufficient to ensure that the Board operates independently of management and in the best interests of the Company.

Nomination of Directors

The Board considers its size each year when it considers the number of directors to recommend for election at the annual meeting of Shareholders, taking into account the number required to carry out the Board's duties effectively and to maintain a diversity of views and experience.

The Board does not have a nominating committee, and these functions are currently performed by the Board as a whole. However, if there is a change in the number of directors required by the Company, this policy will be reviewed.

Compensation

The Board determines compensation for the directors and the procedures for this determination are described under Statement of Executive Compensation below. With respect to compensation paid to the Chief Executive Officer, please refer to Statement of Executive Compensation below.

Other Board Committees

The Board has no committees other than the Audit Committee.

Assessments

The Board monitors the adequacy of information given to directors, communication between the Board and management, and the strategic direction and processes of the Board and the Audit Committee on an ongoing basis.

STATEMENT OF EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION

The following compensation information is provided as required under Form 51-102F6V for Venture Issuers (the “Form”), as such term is defined in NI 51-102.

For the purposes of this Statement of Executive Compensation:

compensation securities” includes stock options, convertible securities, exchangeable securities and similar instruments including stock appreciation rights, deferred share units and restricted stock units granted or issued by the company or one of its subsidiaries for services provided or to be provided, directly or indirectly, to the company or any of its subsidiaries; and

NEO” or “named executive officer” means each of the following individuals:

(a) each individual who, in respect of the company, during any part of the most recently completed financial year, served as chief executive officer (“CEO”), including an individual performing functions similar to a CEO;

(b) each individual who, in respect of the company, during any part of the most recently completed financial year, served as chief financial officer (“CFO”), including an individual performing functions similar to a CFO;

(c) in respect of the company and its subsidiaries, the most highly compensated executive officer other than the individuals identified in paragraphs (a) and (b) at the end of the most recently completed financial year whose total compensation was more than $150,000, as determined in accordance with subsection 1.3(5), for that financial year;

- 13 -


(d) each individual who would be a named executive officer under paragraph (c) but for the fact that the individual was not an executive officer of the company, requirements and was not acting in a similar capacity, at the end of that financial year.

During the financial years ended August 31, 2017 and August 31, 2016, based on the definition above, the NEO of the Company was Yaron Conforti, the President, CEO, CFO and a Director of the Company. During the financial year ended August 31, 2015, the NEOs of the Company were Harry Bregman, former President of the Company, and Gord Wilton, former Secretary and Treasurer of the Company. Mr. Bregman resigned as President of the Company on July 15, 2015, but remains a current director of the Company. Mr. Wilton resigned as Secretary and Treasurer of the Company on July 15, 2015, but remains a current director of the Company. Mr. Conforti was appointed as a director of the Company and replaced Mr. Bregman and Mr. Wilton as President, Secretary, and Treasurer of the Company on July 15, 2015.

The Company did not pay any compensation to any NEO or to its directors during the three most recently completed financial years ended August 31, 2017, August 31, 2016, and August 31, 2015. Subsequent to August 31, 2017, the Company granted an aggregate of 700,000 to its NEOs and directors, as described below under “Share Options and Other Compensation Securities”.

Share Options and Other Compensation Securities

The Company does not grant share-based awards.

The Company has a share option plan in place, which was established to provide incentive to qualified parties to increase their proprietary interest in the Company and thereby encourage their continuing association with the Company. Management proposes stock option grants to the Board based on such criteria as performance, previous grants, and hiring incentives. All grants require Board approval. The share option plan is administered by the Board and provides that options will be issued to directors, officers, employees or consultants of the Company or a subsidiary of the Company.

No compensation securities were granted or issued to directors and NEOs by the Company, or a subsidiary of the Company, in the financial years ended August 31, 2017, 2016, or 2015 for services provided or to be provided, directly or indirectly, to the Company, or a subsidiary of the Company.

Subsequent to August 31, 2017, the Company granted an aggregate of 700,000 stock options to its NEOs and directors for a period of 2 years from the date of issuance, at an exercise price of $0.05 per share, with all options to vest immediately, as follows:

Stock Option Plan

A stock option plan was approved by the Company’s Board of Directors effective as of February 9, 2018 (the “Stock Option Plan”). The purpose of the Stock Option Plan is to assist the Company in attracting, retaining and motivating directors, officer, employees, consultants and contractors of the Company and of its affiliates and to closely align the personal interests of such service providers with the interests of the Company and its shareholders.

- 14 -


The Stock Option Plan provides that the aggregate number of securities reserved for issuance will be 10% of the number of common shares of the Company issued and outstanding from time to time on a fully- diluted basis.

The Stock Option Plan is administered by the Board of Directors of the Company, which has full and final authority with respect to the granting of all options thereunder. Upon completion of the Proposed Transaction with FV Pharma Inc., the Board of Directors of the Company may amend and restate the Stock Option Plan to reflect the new Company name and the Articles Amendment.

Options may be granted under the Stock Option Plan to such service providers of the Company and its affiliates, if any, as the Board of Directors may from time to time designate. The exercise prices will be determined by the Board of Directors, but will, in no event, be less than the market value of Common Shares or the lowest price permitted by the policies of any stock exchange on which the Common Shares may be listed. All options granted under the Stock Option Plan will expire not later than the date that is ten years from the date that such options are granted. Options granted under the Stock Option Plan are not transferable or assignable other than by testamentary instrument or pursuant to the laws of succession.

A complete copy of the Stock Option Plan is available under the Company’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.

Employment, Consulting and Management Agreements

No employment contracts have been entered into by the Company with its NEOs. During each of the financial years ended August 31, 2017, 2016, or 2015 and to date, the Company has no agreements of compensatory plans or arrangements with any of its NEOs concerning severance payments of cash or equity compensation resulting from the resignation, retirement or any other termination of employment or other agreement with the Company or as a result of a change of control of the Company.

Oversight and Description of Director and Named Executive Officer Compensation

The responsibilities relating to executive and director compensation, including reviewing and recommending compensation of the Company’s officers and employees and overseeing the Company’s base compensation structure and equity-based compensation program is performed by the Board as a whole. The Board also assumes responsibility for reviewing and monitoring the long-range compensation strategy for the Company’s senior management.

The Board is satisfied that the current compensation arrangements adequately reflect the responsibilities and risks involved in being an effective director or officer of the Company at this time. The Company does not have a compensation committee. At this stage of the Company’s development, the Company does not believe its size and limited scope of operations requires a formal compensation committee.

There are no arrangements under which NEOs or Directors were compensated by the Company during the three most recently completed financial years for their services in their capacity as NEOs or Directors, or otherwise.

Pension Disclosure

The Company does not have a pension plan that provides for payments or benefits to the NEOs at, following, or in connection with retirement.

- 15 -


SECURITIES AUTHORIZED FOR ISSUANCE UNDER EQUITY COMPENSATION PLANS

As of August 31, 2017, the Company did not have any compensation plans in place and accordingly had no securities authorized for issuance under any compensation plan.

Subsequent to August 31, 2017, the Company adopted the Stock Option Plan. The Stock Option Plan has been established to provide incentive to qualified parties to increase their proprietary interest in the Company and thereby encourage their continuing association with the Company. The Stock Option Plan is administered by the Board of the Company. For a summary of the material terms of the Stock Option Plan, see above under the heading “Statement of Executive Compensation – Stock Option Plan”.

INDEBTEDNESS OF DIRECTORS AND EXECUTIVE OFFICERS

No directors, proposed nominees for election as directors, executive officers or their respective associates or affiliates, or other management of the Company were indebted to the Company as at the Company’s financial years ended August 31, 2017, 2016 or 2015 or as at the date hereof.

INTEREST OF INFORMED PERSONS IN MATERIAL TRANSACTIONS

This Information Circular, including the disclosure below, briefly describes (and, where practicable, states the approximate amount) of any material interest, direct or indirect, of any informed person of the Company, any proposed director of the Company, or any associate or affiliate of any informed person or proposed director, in any transaction since the commencement of the Company’s most recently completed financial year or in any proposed transaction which has materially affected or would materially affect the Company or any of its subsidiaries.

1. During the financial year ended August 31, 2017, the Company arranged to borrow $35,000 from Yaron Conforti under a convertible note, which was convertible into Common Shares at a conversion price of $0.0118 per Common Share. Mr. Conforti subsequently converted the full amount of the note into 2,966,102 Common Shares. Mr. Conforti also acquired 238,820 Common Shares at a price of $0.05 per Common Share pursuant to a debt settlement agreement with the Company, and acquired 375,000 Common Shares at a price of $0.02 per Common Share pursuant to the Company’s non-brokered private placement.

2. During the financial year ended August 31, 2017, Mr. Bregman acquired 879,781 Common Shares at a price of $0.05 per Common Share pursuant to a debt settlement agreement with the Company.

MANAGEMENT CONTRACTS

There are no management functions of the Company, which are to any substantial degree performed by a person or company other than the directors or senior officers of the Company.

PARTICULARS OF MATTERS TO BE ACTED UPON

1. Approval of Option Plan

The Company has a Stock Option Plan dated for reference February 9, 2018. Under the Stock Option Plan, options totalling a maximum of 10% of the Common Shares outstanding from time to time on a fully diluted basis are available for grant. At the Meeting, shareholders will be asked to ratify and approve the Stock Option Plan.

The Share Option Plan is described in more detail above under the heading “Statement of Executive Compensation – Stock Option Plan”.

The Board is of the view that the Stock Option Plan provides the Company with the flexibility to attract and maintain the services of executives, employees and other service providers in competition with other companies in the industry. Accordingly, at the Meeting, shareholders will be asked to approve the following ordinary resolution, with or without variation:

- 16 -


RESOLVED as an ordinary resolution that the Company’s stock option plan dated for reference February 9, 2018, be and is hereby ratified and approved.”

An ordinary resolution is a resolution passed by the shareholders of the Company at a general meeting by a simple majority of the votes cast on the resolution in person or by proxy. A copy of the Stock Option Plan will be available for inspection by any shareholder at the Meeting. A copy of the Stock Option Plan is filed under the Company’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.

The Board recommends shareholders vote in favour of ratification and approval of the Stock Option Plan.

Unless otherwise directed, the persons named in the enclosed form of proxy intend to vote FOR the above ordinary resolution. An ordinary resolution is a resolution passed by the shareholders of the Company at a general meeting by a simple majority of the votes cast in person or by proxy.

2. Name Change

In connection with the Proposed Transaction, as described above under the heading “Election of Directors,” the Board proposes to change the Company’s name to better reflect its new business direction of acquiring working interests in the medical marijuana business. At the Meeting, Shareholders of the Company will be asked to consider and, if thought appropriate, to authorize and approve a special resolution in the form set out below, approving an amendment to the Company’s current Articles to change the Company’s name to “Cannabis ConneXion Corp.” or such other name that the Board may determine (the “Name Change Resolution”).

Notwithstanding the approval of the Shareholders, the Board may, in its sole discretion and without further Shareholder action, not proceed with the proposed name change.

The text of the special resolution to be considered at the Meeting will be substantially as follows:

RESOLVED as a special resolution of the Company that:

1. the Company be, and is hereby, authorized to amend its current Articles to change the Company’s name to “Cannabis ConneXion Corp.” or such other name that the board of directors in its sole discretion determine appropriate and which any regulatory body having jurisdiction may accept;

2. notwithstanding that this resolution has been duly passed by the shareholders of the Company, the board of directors of the Company be and is hereby authorized and empowered, without further notice to, or approval of, the shareholders of the Company, to revoke this resolution at any time prior to the amendment of the Company’s current Articles and to determine not to proceed with changing the name of the Company; and

3. any director or officer of the Company is hereby authorized and directed, acting for, in the name of and on behalf of the Company, to execute or cause to be executed, under the seal of the Company or otherwise, and to deliver or cause to be delivered, such other documents and instruments, and to do or cause to be done all such other acts and things, as may in the opinion of such director or officer of the Company be necessary or desirable to carry out the intent of the foregoing resolution.”

- 17 -


THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS RECOMMENDS A VOTE "FOR" THE NAME CHANGE RESOLUTION. Unless otherwise directed, the persons designated in the enclosed form of proxy intend to vote FOR the Name Change Resolution. In the event that the Proposed Transaction is not completed, the name change to “Cannabis ConneXion Corp.” will not be made.

To be effective, the Name Change Resolution must be approved by at least two-thirds of the votes cast by the Shareholders present or by proxy at the Meeting. The amendment to the current Articles will not become effective until the required filings have been filed and accepted in accordance with the OBCA.

3. Amendment to Current Articles

In connection with the Proposed Transaction, as described above under the heading “Election of Directors,” the Board is also proposing amendments to the Company’s current Articles (the “Articles Amendment”) in order to:

i. amend and re-designate the Company’s existing Common Shares as “Class B Subordinate Voting Shares”;

ii. create a new class of “Class A Multiple Voting Shares”; and

iii. eliminate the existing classes of non-voting Class A Preference Shares and non-voting Class B Preference Shares.

Approval of the special resolution by holders of Common Shares would give the Board authority to implement the Articles Amendment at any time subject to any required regulatory approvals. Notwithstanding the approval of the Shareholders, the Board may, in its sole discretion and without further Shareholder action, not proceed with the Articles Amendment.

The following is a summary of the rights, privileges, restrictions and conditions attaching to the Class A Multiple Voting Shares and the Class B Subordinate Voting Shares and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such rights, privileges, restrictions and conditions which are attached to this Circular as Schedule “D”.

Rank

The Class A Multiple Voting Shares and Class B Subordinate Voting Shares will rank pari passu with respect to the payment of dividends, return of capital and distribution of assets in the event of the liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company. In the event of the liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of the Company or any other distribution of its assets among its shareholders for the purpose of winding-up its affairs, whether voluntarily or involuntarily, the holders of Class A Multiple Voting Shares and the holders of Class B Subordinate Voting Shares will be entitled to participate equally, share for share, subject always to the rights of the holders of any class of shares ranking senior to the Class A Multiple Voting Shares and the Class B Subordinate Voting Shares, in the remaining property and assets of the Company available for distribution to shareholders, without preference or distinction among or between the Class A Multiple Voting Shares and the Class B Subordinate Voting Shares.

Dividends

Holders of Class A Multiple Voting Shares and Class B Subordinate Voting Shares will be entitled to receive, subject always to the rights of the holders of any class of shares ranking senior to the Class A Multiple Voting Shares and Class B Subordinate Voting Shares, dividends out of the assets of the Company legally available for the payment of dividends at such times and in such amount and form as the Board may from time to time determine and the Company will pay dividends thereon on a pari passu basis, if, as and when declared by the Board.

- 18 -


Voting Rights

Each Class B Subordinate Voting Share will be entitled to one vote and each Class A Multiple Voting Share will be entitled to 276,660 votes on all matters, provided that the Board may determine in connection with the Proposed Transaction that the Class A Multiple Voting Shares will be entitled to a number of votes per share which is less than 276,660 votes per share.

Conversion

The Class B Subordinate Voting Shares are not convertible into any other class of shares. Each outstanding Class A Multiple Voting Share may, at any time at the option of the holder, be converted into one Class B Subordinate Voting Share. Upon the first date that any Class A Multiple Voting Share is held other than by a Permitted Holder (as defined in Schedule “D” to this Circular), the Permitted Holder which held such Class A Multiple Voting Share until such date, without any further action, shall automatically be deemed to have exercised his, her or its rights to convert such Class A Multiple Voting Share into a fully paid and non-assessable Class B Subordinate Voting Share.

Subdivision or Consolidation

No subdivision or consolidation of the Class A Multiple Voting Shares or the Class B Subordinate Voting Shares may be carried out unless, at the same time, the Class A Multiple Voting Shares or the Class B Subordinate Voting Shares, as the case may be, are subdivided or consolidated in the same manner and on the same basis.

Certain Amendments

In addition to any other voting right or power to which the holders of Class B Subordinate Voting Shares shall be entitled by law or regulation or other provisions of the Articles from time to time in effect, but subject to the provisions of the Articles, holders of Class B Subordinate Voting Shares shall be entitled to vote separately as a class, in addition to any other vote of shareholders that may be required, in respect of any alteration, repeal or amendment of the Articles which would adversely affect the powers, preferences or rights of the holders of Class B Subordinate Voting Shares.

Change of Control Transactions

The holders of Class B Subordinate Voting Shares will be entitled to participate on an equal footing with holders of Class A Multiple Voting Shares in the event of a “Change of Control Transaction” (as defined in Schedule “D” to this Circular) requiring approval of the holders of Class A Multiple Voting Shares and Class B Subordinate Voting Shares under the OBCA.

Shareholder Dissent Rights

Registered Shareholders of the Company that oppose the Articles Amendment Resolution, may, subject to compliance with certain conditions, dissent from the Articles Amendment Resolution and be entitled to be paid the fair value for their Common Shares in accordance with section 185 of the OBCA. The full text of section 185 of the OBCA is set out in Schedule "A" to this Circular.

Under the OBCA, a registered Shareholder of the Company is entitled, in addition to any other right such Shareholder may have, to dissent and to be paid by the Company the fair value of the Common Shares held by it in respect of which it dissents, determined as of the close of business on the last business day before the day which the Articles Amendment Resolution from which it dissents is adopted and not rescinded. A Shareholder of the Company may dissent only with respect to all of the Common Shares of the Company held by such Shareholder or on behalf of any one beneficial owner and registered in its name. Persons who are beneficial owners of the Company’s Common Shares registered in the name of a broker, custodian, nominee or other intermediary who wish to dissent, should be aware that only the registered owner of such shares is entitled to dissent. A Shareholder who beneficially owns Common Shares but is not the registered holder thereof, should contact the registered holder for assistance.

- 19 -


A dissenting Shareholder is required to send a written objection (a “Dissent Notice”) to the Articles Amendment Resolution to the Company at or prior to the Meeting. The deposit of a Dissent Notice does not deprive a Shareholder of the right to vote; however, a Shareholder who has submitted a Dissent Notice and who votes in favour of the Articles Amendment Resolution will, in effect, no longer be considered to be dissenting. A vote against the Articles Amendment Resolution or an abstention does not constitute a Dissent Notice. If the Articles Amendment Resolution is passed, either the Company or any Shareholder who has delivered a Dissent Notice may apply to the court to fix the fair value of the Common Shares of the dissenting Shareholder. If such an application is made, and unless the court orders otherwise, at least 10 days before the date on which the application is returnable (if the Company is the applicant) or within 10 days after the Company is served with the originating notice for the application (if the dissenting Shareholder is the applicant), the Company will send to each dissenting Shareholder who has delivered a Dissent Notice that is not withdrawn prior to 5:00 pm. (Toronto time) on the business day immediately preceding the effective date of the Articles Amendment, a written offer to pay for the Common Shares (an “Offer to Purchase”), in an amount considered by the Board to be the fair value of the Common Shares, accompanied by a statement showing how the fair value was determined. Every Offer to Purchase in respect of Common Shares will be on the same terms.

Dissenting Shareholders who are ultimately entitled to receive payment for their Common Shares under section 185 of the OBCA will cease to have any rights as a Shareholder other than the right to be paid the fair value of the Common Shares in the amount agreed to between the Company and the Shareholder or in the amount of a court judgment, as the case may be.

All Dissent Notices to the Company pursuant to the provisions of section 185 of the OBCA must be addressed to the Company at The Canadian Venture Building, 82 Richmond Street East, Toronto, ON M5C 1P1, and be received at such location by delivery or by registered or certified mail at or before the Meeting.

The foregoing is only a summary of the provisions of section 185 of the OBCA, which provisions are technical and complex. It is suggested that any Shareholder wishing to exercise dissent rights seek legal advice as failure to comply strictly with the provisions of the OBCA may prejudice such Shareholder’s dissent rights.

Articles Amendment Resolution

At the Meeting, the Shareholders will be asked to consider, and if thought appropriate, approve a special resolution substantially in the following form to permit the Articles Amendment:

“RESOLVED as a special resolution of the Company that:

1. the Company is hereby authorized to amend its current Articles to provide that:

a. the common shares of the Company be reclassified as “Class B Subordinate Voting Shares”, and to provide that the Class B Subordinate Voting Shares shall have attached thereto the rights, privileges, restrictions and conditions attached to the Company’s Information Circular dated February 9, 2018 (the “Circular”);

b. a new class of shares of the Company designated “Class A Multiple Voting Shares” be created, and to provide that the Class A Multiple Voting Shares shall have attached thereto the rights, privileges, restrictions and conditions attached to the Circular, and the Board of Directors is authorized to determine the number of votes per share for the Class A Multiple Voting Shares provided that such number is equal to or less than 276,660 votes per share; and

- 20 -


c. the existing non-voting Class A Preference Shares and non-voting Class B Preference Shares be eliminated;

2. any officer or director of the Company is hereby authorized and directed for and on behalf of the Company to execute and deliver all such documents and to do all such other acts and things as he or she may determine to be necessary or advisable to give effect to this special resolution including, without limitation, to determine the timing for delivery and effect the delivery of articles of amendment in the prescribed form to the Director appointed under the Business Corporations Act (Ontario), the execution of any such document or the doing of any such other act or thing being conclusive evidence of such determination; and

3. notwithstanding that this special resolution has been passed by the shareholders of the Company, the board of directors be and is hereby authorized and empowered, without further approval of the shareholders of the Company, to revoke this resolution at any time before the certificate of amendment to be issued by the Director upon receipt of such articles of amendment becomes effective.”

The Board and management of the Company believe that the proposed Articles Amendment is in the best interests of the Company and its Shareholders. THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS RECOMMENDS A VOTE "FOR" THE ARTICLES AMENDMENT RESOLUTION. Unless otherwise directed, the persons named in the enclosed form of proxy intend to vote “For” the Articles Amendment Resolution.

To be effective, the Articles Amendment Resolution must be approved by at least two-thirds of the votes cast by the Shareholders present in person or by proxy at the Meeting. The Articles Amendment will not become effective until the required filings have been filed and accepted in accordance with the OBCA.
