CannTx Provides Update on Proposed Qualifying Transaction

PUSLINCH, Ontario, January 25, 2019 - CannTx Life Sciences Inc. (the “Company” or “CannTx”) announces that, by way of an amending agreement, it has revised the terms of its binding letter of intent to allow for additional time to complete a reverse takeover transaction (the “Transaction”) of Smartset Services Inc (“Smartset”). The Transaction was previously announced on December 13, 2018 and, once complete, will constitute the Company’s “Qualifying Transaction”, as such term is defined by Policy 2.4 – Capital Pool Companies, pursuant to the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The Company has assessed current market conditions for public companies operating within the cannabis space, as well as those contemplating public transactions. CannTx has concluded that the extended timeline is in the best interest of shareholders and will place the Company in a stronger position to target the closing of a go public transaction in early Fall 2019.
