Explanatory Note

On August 4, 2021, Meta Materials Inc. (“Metamaterial”) and its newly formed subsidiary, 1315115 BC Inc. (“Canco”), a British Columbia corporation, entered into an Arrangement Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Nanotech Security Corp., a British Columbia corporation (“Nanotech”), pursuant to which Canco would acquire all of the outstanding common shares of Nanotech by way of a statutory plan of arrangement under the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) (the “Arrangement”), on and subject to the terms and conditions of the Agreement. On October 5, 2021, following the satisfaction of the closing conditions set forth in the Agreement, the Arrangement was completed.

Item 2.01. Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets

On October 5, 2021, Metamaterial completed the Arrangement pursuant to the terms of the Agreement. Under the terms of the Agreement, each Nanotech shareholder received cash consideration of Cdn $1.25 per share in exchange for such holder’s Nanotech common shares held immediately prior the effective time of the Arrangement (the “Effective Time”).

Prior to the completion of the Transaction, META did not own any Nanotech Shares.

The foregoing description of the Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Agreement.
