Sensible Meats Provides Shareholder Update

Published

VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Sensible Meats Inc. (CBOE CA: HOTD) (FSE: OX4) (“Sensible” or the “Company”)

Due to challenges currently facing the plant-based meat industry, the Board of Directors of the Company, with the support of management, has initiated a review process to explore and evaluate a broad range of strategic alternatives. The strategic review process will encompass an evaluation of the Company's current strategic direction, operations, market valuation and capital structure and will consider appropriate alternatives for the Company, which may include a change in the current business of the Company or other strategic alternatives that may be identified during the strategic review.

In order to assist with this process, the Board of Directors has appointed Mr. Chris Jackson, a current director, as the interim Chief Executive Officer of the Company. Mr. Jackson founded Qtrade Financial Group (www.qtrade.com) in 1999, Canada’s leading independent brokerage firm (sold to Desjardin in August 2016), founded and took public MYM Nutraceuticals (www.mym.ca), a major supplier to provincial distributors across Canada of premium marijuana products (bought by IM Cannabis Corp. (IMCC: NASDAQ in 2021) and in 2016 was the founding investor in Nude Beverages (nudebeverages.com) a liquor company specializing in vodka, tequila and gin canned products, that contain no sugar or sweeteners and all-natural flavors operating in Canada and the US. The Board is excited to have the experience of Mr. Jackson at the helm of Sensible during this transitional period.

Chris will replace Mr. Shawn Balaghi, who will remain on the Board of Directors of the Company to assist with the strategic review process. The Board thanks Mr. Balaghi for his service in the role of Chief Executive Officer since the Company’s initial listing on the CBOE.

While the strategic review process is ongoing, the Company intends to continue to pursue its core strategic objectives so as to maintain and enhance the value of its current business and operations. Other than as described in this press release, the Company has not made any decisions related to strategic alternatives at this time and there can be no assurance that the evaluation of strategic alternatives will result in any transaction proceeding or change in strategy. The Company does not intend to comment further unless and until further disclosure is appropriate or necessary.
