Neptune Wellness Solutions Inc. Announces Share Consolidation

Neptune Wellness Solutions Inc. (“Neptune” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: NEPT) (TSX: NEPT), a diversified and fully integrated health and wellness company focused on plant-based, sustainable and purpose-driven lifestyle brands, announced today that it has received conditional approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”) with respect to the Company’s proposed consolidation of its common shares (the “Common Shares”) on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation Common Share for every thirty-five (35) pre-consolidation Common Shares (the “Consolidation”). The Consolidation was previously approved by the board of directors of the Company on June 3, 2022. Each fractional Common Share remaining after completion of the Consolidation that is less than one (1) whole of a Common Share will be increased to one (1) whole Common Share. The Consolidation will reduce the number of Common Shares issued and outstanding from approximately 198 million Common Shares to approximately 5.7 million Common Shares.

The Consolidation is subject to the final approval of the TSX, along with other customary conditions relating to the Consolidation. The precise effective date of the Consolidation and the date upon which the Common Shares will begin trading on the NASDAQ and the TSX on a post-Consolidation basis will be announced at a later date.

The Company’s transfer agent, Computershare Investor Services Inc. (“Computershare”), will act as the exchange agent for the Consolidation. In connection with the Consolidation, Computershare will send to registered holders of Common Shares (the “Registered Holders”) a letter of transmittal (the “Letter of Transmittal”) that may be used by such Registered Holders to exchange their pre-Consolidation Common Share certificates for certificates in the capital of the Company representing the consolidated number of Common Shares. Until surrendered, each certificate representing pre-Consolidation Common Shares will represent the number of whole post-Consolidation Common Shares to which the holder is entitled as a result of the Consolidation. The post-Consolidated Common Shares issued will be done via a push-out to shareholders holding book shares / DRS Advice positions and pre-Consolidated Common Shares will become null and void. Shareholders holding Common Shares by way of a physical share certificate are required to deposit a completed Letter of Transmittal and the physical share certificates for cancellation to receive the applicable post-Consolidated Common Shares.

Non-registered or beneficial holders holding their Common Shares through a bank, broker or other nominee will not need to complete a Letter of Transmittal and should note that such banks, brokers or other nominees may have specific procedures for processing the Consolidation. Shareholders holding their Common Shares with such a bank, broker or nominee and who have any questions in this regard are encouraged to contact their nominee.

A copy of the Letter of Transmittal will be posted on the Company’s issuer profile on SEDAR at

The Company’s name and trading symbol will remain unchanged on the Nasdaq and the TSX as a consequence of the Consolidation.
