CDXXF

/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/

TORONTO, Aug. 16, 2022 /CNW/ - Choice Consolidation Corp. (NEO: CDXX.UN.U) (OTCPK: CDXXF) (the "Company") announced today that the previously announced automatic redemption (the "Redemption") of the Company's class A restricted voting units (the "Class A Restricted VotingUnits"), each comprised of one Class A restricted voting share (each a "Class A Restricted VotingShare") and one-quarter of a warrant (a "Warrant"), was completed today.

Each Class A Restricted Voting Unit was redeemed for approximately U.S.$10.0169 (the "Redemption Amount") before taking withholding taxes into account. Each one-quarter of a Warrant forming part of a Class A Restricted Voting Unit was redeemed for U.S.$0.10, and the remainder of the Redemption Amount for such Class A Restricted Voting Unit was paid in respect of the Class A Restricted Voting Share. Payment of the Redemption Amount (net of any applicable withholding taxes) constitutes the Company's final payment in respect of the liquidation of the escrow account that holds the proceeds of the Company's initial public offering (the "IPO"), which closed on February 19, 2021. Please refer to the Company's long form prospectus dated February 12, 2021 filed in connection with the IPO for additional information regarding certain Canadian federal income tax considerations related to the Class A Restricted Voting Units and redemptions thereof. Securityholders should consult their own tax advisors with respect to applicable income tax consequences of the Redemption.

The Company's Class A Restricted Voting Units were delisted from the Neo Exchange and the OTCQX Market effective at the close of business today and the Company intends to apply to cease to be a reporting issuer in Canada.
