The listing of the Company's common shares on NASDAQ remains subject to the approval of NASDAQ and the satisfaction of all applicable listing and regulatory requirements, including the effectiveness of the Form 40-F Registration Statement. The Company may also seek shareholder approval for a share consolidation in order to meet the share-price requirements of NASDAQ.

Namaste's common shares will continue to trade on the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") under the ticker symbol "N" post-NASDAQ uplisting.
Sean Dollinger, President and CEO of Namaste comments; "We're very excited to become one of the first Canadian cannabis companies to pursue this prestigious listing. Listing Namaste shares on NASDAQ will support the Company's anticipated growth as we're actively expanding our global business and entering into new sales channels. Namaste has certainly come a long way from humble beginnings and we're very proud of our team and their accomplishments and are very much looking forward to elevating the Company's profile by listing on NASDAQ."
