Other Events.

On March 9, 2023, George Palikaras, the President, Chief Executive Officer and a Director of Meta Materials, Inc. (the “Company”), published a Twitter post responding to questions/comments from the public also posted on Twitter and other social media relating to a potential reverse split of the Company’s shares of common stock to maintain compliance with the continued listing requirement of The Nasdaq Stock Market, LLC (“Nasdaq”) to maintain a closing bid price at or equal to $1.00 per share. A copy of the Twitter post is attached as Appendix A.

The Company disavows the twitter statement by George Palikaras regarding whether the Company may decide to implement a reverse split in order to comply with Nasdaq continued listing requirements. The Company has filed a Registration Statement (including a prospectus) with the SEC relating to its securities offered in a continuous “at-the-market” offering (“ATM”), and to which this communication relates. Before you invest, you should read the prospectus in that Registration Statement and other documents the Company has filed with the SEC for more complete information about the Company and this offering. You may get these documents for free by visiting EDGAR on the SEC Website at www.sec.gov. You should rely only on the information in the Registration Statement and the ATM prospectus before purchasing any Company securities in the open market which may include shares being offered by the Company in the ATM offering.
