Namaste Files Preliminary Base Shelf Prospectus


 Toronto, Ontario, Canada – August 18, 2020 Namaste Technologies Inc. (“Namaste” or the “Company”) (TSXV: N) (FRANKFURT: M5BQ) (OTCMKTS: NXTTF), a leading platform for cannabis products, accessories, and education, announced today that it has filed a preliminary short form base shelf prospectus with the securities regulatory authorities in each of the provinces of Canada, except Quebec (the “Securities Regulators”).

The base shelf prospectus, when made final, will allow Namaste to qualify the distribution by way of a prospectus of up to C$90 million of common shares, preferred shares, debt securities, subscription receipts, warrants and units, or any combination thereof, from time to time, during the 25-month period that the final short form base shelf prospectus (the “Base Shelf Prospectus”) is effective. The specific terms of any offering under the Base Shelf Prospectus will be established in a prospectus supplement, which will be filed with the applicable Securities Regulators in connection with any such offering. The Company has filed this base shelf prospectus to maintain financial flexibility to access capital quickly, when available and needed, but the Company has no immediate intention to undertake an offering.

No securities may be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time at which a receipt for the Base Shelf Prospectus is obtained from the Securities Regulators. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.

A copy of the preliminary short form base shelf prospectus can be found under the Company’s profile on SEDAR at
