Letter to the Stockholders of Tilray, Inc.
Invitation to Special Meeting that will be Held Virtually on Thursday, July 29th, 2021
Dear Fellow Stockholders,
We need your help to ensure Tilray grows. Please take a few minutes to read this letter, the accompanying materials, and then vote online.
Just last month, we ushered in a new era for the global cannabis industry by announcing the completion of our combination with Aphria Inc. That transaction brought together two highly complementary businesses to create the “new” Tilray with the largest geographic footprint and leading cannabis-focused portfolio of consumer-packaged goods in the world.
The “New” Tilray is Off to a Running Start: As promised, our focus now turns to execution on our highest-return priorities, including business integration, cost-synergy realization, and accelerating our global growth strategy. We are poised to strike and transform the industry with our highly scalable operational footprint, a curated portfolio of diverse medical and adult-use cannabis brands and products, a multi-continent distribution network, and a robust capital structure to fund our global expansion strategy and deliver sustained profitability and long-term value for all of our stakeholders.
We Have Substantial Growth Opportunities Ahead and We Need Your Support: To implement the next phase of our strategy, we have a number of important matters to address at the upcoming Special Meeting of Stockholders that will be critical to driving our business forward. You have the opportunity to vote on key proposals that we believe will help us turn potential into performance and profitable growth.
1.
Authorized Shares Proposal – Help Tilray Grow: This proposal would increase the number of authorized shares of capital stock. The additional authorized shares would enable us to move quickly to seize the highly attractive acquisition and financing opportunities we see ahead. By approving this proposal, you will be enabling Tilray to accelerate growth and realize its potential. Please note that approval does not mean that the authorized shares will be issued, only that they are available if needed so the Company can move swiftly to seize value creation opportunities as they arise.
2.
Governance Proposals - Expand Your Rights: Following the combination of Tilray and Aphria, our Board undertook a comprehensive review of our corporate governance, taking into consideration the views held by the investment community on important matters of governance. As a result, the Board is proposing to expand the rights of our stockholders; but to do so, we need your approval on several amendments to our corporate documents.
These proposals are critical to our growth strategy, so please vote today! You do not need to join us at the Special Meeting to cast your vote. You can vote online in just a few minutes. Your support is extremely important, no matter how many or how few shares you own.
The virtual Special Meeting of Tilray’s Stockholders will be held on Thursday, July 29th, 2021 at 11:00 a.m., Eastern Time, conducted via live audio webcast. You will be able to attend if you wish by visiting https://www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/TRLY2021SM2.
In any event, please submit the enclosed proxy to have your shares voted promptly, whether or not you plan to attend the Special Meeting. You may submit your proxy online, as well as by telephone or by mail. Please review the instructions on the proxy or voting instruction form regarding each of these voting options.
If you have any questions, or need any assistance in voting your shares, please contact Morrow Sodali LLC at [] toll-free in the U.S. and Canada, or [] or by email at [].
WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT AND WILL WORK EVERYDAY TO TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF ALL OPPORTUNITIES TO ENHANCE LONG-TERM VALUE.
Thank you for your interest and investment in Tilray, Inc.
Sincerely,
Irwin D. Simon,
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

ABOUT THE PROXY MATERIALS AND SPECIAL MEETING

You are invited to attend the Special Meeting to vote on the proposals described in this proxy statement. However, you do not need to attend the meeting to vote your shares.

Beneficial Owner: Shares Registered in the Name of a Broker or Bank
If, on June 22, 2021, your shares were held not in your name but rather in an account at a brokerage firm, bank or other similar organization, then you are the beneficial owner of shares held in “street name” and these proxy materials are being forwarded to you by that organization. The organization holding your account is considered to be the stockholder of record for purposes of voting at the Special Meeting. As a beneficial owner, you have the right to direct your broker, bank or other nominee regarding how to vote the shares in your account.

Beneficial Owner: Shares Registered in the Name of Broker or Bank
If you are a beneficial owner of shares registered in the name of your broker, bank or other agent, these proxy materials along with a voting instruction form are being provided by that organization rather than Tilray. Follow the instructions in such voting instruction form to ensure that your vote is counted. To vote by “virtually” attending the Special Meeting, you must obtain a “legal proxy” from your broker, bank or other agent. Follow the instructions from your broker, bank or other agent included with these proxy materials, or contact that organization to request a proxy form.
Internet proxy voting may be provided to allow you to vote your shares online, with procedures designed to ensure the authenticity and correctness of your proxy vote instructions. However, please be aware that you must bear any costs associated with your internet access, such as usage charges from internet access providers and telephone companies.
How Many Votes Do I Have?
On each matter to be voted upon, you have one (1) vote for each share of Class 2 common stock you own as of June 22, 2021. The Class 2 common stock will vote together as a single class on all proposals described in this Proxy Statement.
What is the quorum requirement for the Special Meeting?
A quorum of stockholders is necessary to hold a valid meeting.
A quorum will be present if holders of shares representing one-third of the voting power of the outstanding shares of Class 2 common stock entitled to vote are present at the Special Meeting or represented by proxy. On each matter to be voted upon, you have one (1) vote for each share of Class 2 common stock you own as of June 22, 2021. The Class 2 common stock will vote together as a single class on all proposals described in this Proxy Statement. On the record date, there were [•] shares of Class 2 common stock. Thus, the holders of shares representing an aggregate of [•] votes must be present or represented by proxy at the Special Meeting to have a quorum.
Your shares will be counted towards the quorum only if you submit a valid proxy (or one is submitted on your behalf by your broker, bank or other nominee) or if you vote at the virtual Special Meeting. Abstentions and broker non-votes will be counted towards the quorum requirement. If there is no quorum, the chairperson of the meeting or the holders of shares representing a majority of the voting power present at the Special Meeting or represented by proxy may adjourn the Special Meeting to another date.
What is an abstention?
An abstention represents a stockholder’s affirmative choice to decline to vote on a proposal. If a stockholder indicates on its proxy card that it wishes to abstain from voting its shares, or if a broker, bank or other nominee holding its
3

TABLE OF CONTENTS

customers’ shares of record causes abstentions to be recorded for shares, these shares will be considered present and entitled to vote at the Special Meeting. As a result, abstentions will be counted for purposes of determining the presence or absence of a quorum and will also count as votes against Proposals 1-5 and will have no effect on Proposal 6.
What if I do not specify how my shares are to be voted or fail to provide timely directions to my broker, bank or other nominee?
Stockholder of Record: Shares Registered in Your Name. If you are a stockholder of record and you submit a proxy but you do not provide voting instructions, your shares will be voted “FOR” Proposals 1-5, and “FOR” Proposal 6, if necessary or appropriate, to permit further solicitation of additional proxies if there are not sufficient votes at the time of the Special Meeting to approve any of Proposals 1-5.
In addition, if any other matters are properly brought before the Special Meeting, the persons named as proxies will be authorized to vote or otherwise act on those matters in accordance with their judgment.
Beneficial Owner: Shares Registered in the Name of a Broker, Bank or Other Nominee. If you are the beneficial owner and hold your shares in street name and do not provide your bank, broker or other nominee that holds your shares with voting instructions, the bank, broker or other nominee will determine if it has the discretionary authority to vote on the particular matter. Your bank, broker or other nominee may vote your shares in its discretion on “routine” matters. Brokers and nominees can use their discretion to vote “uninstructed” shares with respect to matters that are considered to be “routine,” but not with respect to “non-routine” matters. Under the rules and interpretations of the New York Stock Exchange, “non-routine” matters are matters that may substantially affect the rights or privileges of stockholders, such as mergers, stockholder proposals, elections of directors (even if not contested), executive compensation (including any advisory stockholder votes on executive compensation and on the frequency of stockholder votes on executive compensation), and certain corporate governance proposals, even if management-supported. Accordingly, your broker or nominee may not vote for your shares for Proposals 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7 without your instructions.
If you are beneficial owner of shares held in street name, in order to ensure your shares are voted in the way you would prefer, you must provide voting instructions to your broker, bank or other agent by the deadline provided in the materials you receive from your broker, bank or other agent.
If I am a stockholder of record and I do not vote, or if I return a proxy card or otherwise vote without giving specific voting instructions, what happens?
If you are a stockholder of record and do not vote by completing your proxy card, through the internet, by phone or at the Special Meeting, your shares will not be voted.
If you return a signed and dated proxy card or otherwise vote without marking voting selections, your shares will be voted, as applicable, “FOR” Proposals 1-6. If any other matter is properly presented at the meeting, your proxyholder (one of the individuals named on your proxy card) will vote your shares using his best judgment.
Who is paying for this proxy solicitation?
We will pay for the entire cost of soliciting proxies. In addition to these proxy materials, our directors, representatives, and employees may also solicit proxies in person, by telephone, or by other means of communication. Directors and employees will not be paid any additional compensation for soliciting proxies. We may also reimburse brokerage firms, banks and other agents for the cost of forwarding proxy materials to beneficial owners.
What does it mean if I receive more than one set of proxy materials?
If you receive more than one set of proxy materials, your shares may be registered in more than one name or in different accounts. Please follow the voting instructions on the proxy cards in the proxy materials to ensure that all your shares are voted.

Can I change my vote after submitting my proxy?
Stockholder of Record: Shares Registered in Your Name
Yes. You can revoke your proxy at any time before the final vote at the meeting. If you are the record holder of your shares, you may revoke your proxy in any one of the following ways:
You may submit another properly completed proxy card with a later date.
You may grant a subsequent proxy through the internet.
You may send a timely written notice that you are revoking your proxy to Tilray’s Corporate Secretary at 655 Madison Avenue, 19th Floor, New York, NY 10065.
You may “virtually” attend the Special Meeting and vote. Simply attending the meeting will not, by itself, revoke your proxy.
Your most current proxy card or internet proxy is the one that is counted.
Beneficial Owner: Shares Registered in the Name of Broker or Bank
If your shares are held by your broker, bank or other agent, you should follow the instructions provided by your broker, bank or other agent.
What are “Broker Non-Votes”?
As discussed above, when a beneficial owner of shares held in street name does not give voting instructions to his or her broker, bank or other securities intermediary holding his or her shares as to how to vote on matters deemed to be “non-routine” under applicable rules, the broker, bank or other nominee cannot vote the shares. These un-voted shares are counted as “broker non-votes.”
As a reminder, if you are a beneficial owner of shares held in street name, in order to ensure your shares are voted in the way you would prefer, you must provide voting instructions to your broker, bank or other agent by the deadline provided in the materials you receive from your broker, bank or other agent.

How can I contact the Company’s transfer agent?
You may contact our transfer agent by writing to Philadelphia Stock Transfer, Inc., 2320 Haverford Road, Suite 230, Ardmore, PA 19003. You may also contact our transfer agent via email at bwinterle@philadelphiastocktransfer.com or by telephone at (484) 416-3124.
Where can I find the voting results of the Special Meeting?
Preliminary voting results may be announced at the Special Meeting. In addition, final voting results will be published in a current report on Form 8-K that we expect to file within four business days after the Special Meeting. If final voting results are not available to us in time to file a Form 8-K within four business days after the meeting, we intend to file a Form 8-K to publish preliminary results and, within four business days after the final results are known to us, file an amended Form 8-K to publish the final results.
I share an address with another stockholder, and we received only one printed copy of the proxy materials. How may I obtain an additional copy of the proxy materials?
We have adopted an SEC-approved procedure called “householding,” under which we can deliver a single copy of the proxy materials to multiple stockholders who share the same address unless we receive contrary instructions from one or more of the stockholders. This procedure reduces our printing and mailing costs. Stockholders who participate in householding will continue to be able to access and receive separate proxy cards. Upon written or oral request, we will undertake to promptly deliver a separate copy of the proxy materials to any stockholder at a shared address to which we delivered a single copy of any of these documents. To receive a separate copy, or, if you are receiving multiple copies, to request that we only send a single copy of future proxy materials, you may contact your broker or Tilray as follows:
Tilray, Inc.
Attn: Dara Redler, Corporate Secretary
655 Madison Avenue, 19th Floor
New York, NY 10065
or
contact Raphael Gross at 203 682 8253.
Stockholders who hold shares in street name may contact their brokerage firm, bank, broker-dealer or other nominee to request information about householding.

PROPOSAL 1

AUTHORIZED SHARES PROPOSAL
General
The Board has unanimously approved an amendment (the “Authorized Shares Proposal”) to the Certificate of Incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares of capital stock from 743,333,333 to 990,000,000, consisting of 980,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, and 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.0001 per share. The Authorized Shares Proposal only increases the number of authorized shares of common stock and will not change the number of authorized shares of preferred stock.
The additional shares of common stock authorized for issuance by the Authorized Shares Proposal would be a part of the existing class of common stock and, if and when issued, would have the same rights and privileges as the common stock presently issued and outstanding. The Company’s stockholders do not have preemptive rights with respect to its common stock and accordingly, should the Board elect to issue additional shares of common stock, existing stockholders would not have any preferential rights to purchase the shares.
Provided the stockholders approve the Authorized Shares Proposal, the increased number of shares would be authorized for issuance but would remain unissued until such time as the Board approves a specific issuance of such shares. Other than future issuances under the Company’s equity compensation plans, the Company currently has no plans or arrangements to issue the additional authorized shares of common stock that will result in the event that the Company’s stockholders approve, and the Company implements, the Authorized Shares Proposal.
The description of the Authorized Shares Proposal amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation is qualified in its entirety by reference to the text of the proposed revisions, which are set forth under Article IV in the Certificate of Incorporation and attached as Appendix A2. Additions are indicated by underlining, and deletions are indicated by strike-throughs. However, the text of the Authorized Shares Proposal is subject to revision to include such changes as may be required by the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware and as deemed necessary and advisable to effect the Authorized Shares Proposal. The Board reserves its right to elect not to proceed with and abandon the Authorized Shares Proposal if it determines, in its sole discretion at any time, that this proposal is no longer in the best interests of our stockholders.
If we fail to obtain stockholder approval of this proposal at the Special Meeting, we intend to continue to seek to obtain stockholder approval at each subsequent annual meeting of stockholders and/or special meetings of stockholders until such approval has been obtained and we will incur the costs associated therewith.
The Authorized Shares Proposal amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation would become effective upon the filing of a Certificate of Amendment with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware, which we would file promptly following the Special Meeting if our stockholders approve the Authorized Shares Proposal.
Background
The Certificate of Incorporation currently authorizes the issuance of up to 743,333,333 shares of capital stock, of which (a) 233,333,333 shares were classified as Class 1 Common Stock, (b) 500,000,000 shares were classified as Class 2 Common Stock and (c) 10,000,000 shares were classified as preferred stock. On October 1, 2020, the Company filed a Certificate of Retirement with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware (the “Certificate of Retirement”) indicating that all outstanding shares of Class 1 Common Stock had been automatically converted into shares of Class 2 Common Stock and that 16,666,667 shares of Class 1 Common Stock were retired. Following the filing of the Certificate of Retirement, the Company may not issue any share of Class 1 Common Stock.
As of the close of business on June 22, 2021, there were approximately [•] shares of Class 2 Common Stock issued and outstanding, no preferred stock issued and outstanding, and [•] shares of Class 2 Common Stock reserved for issuance pursuant to outstanding option awards and other equity compensation awards, meaning that we presently have [•] authorized shares available for issuance.
Purpose of the Proposal

proper corporate purpose, which could include strategic investments, strategic partnership arrangements, awards or grants under employee equity incentive plans, equity based financing to support the execution of the Company’s business strategy, or other general purposes.
The availability of additional authorized shares of common stock would enhance the business and financial flexibility and allow the Company to execute any of these transactions in the future without the possible delays and significant expense of obtaining additional shareholder approval, except as may be required in particular cases by the Certificate of Incorporation, applicable law or the rules of any stock exchange or other system on which the Company’s securities may then be listed.
The Board believes that additional authorized shares of capital stock will enable the Company to take timely advantage of market conditions and favorable financing and acquisition opportunities that become available to the Company. We anticipate that having additional flexibility will allow us to pursue our strategic objectives, in addition to allowing us to provide equity incentives to our employees in order to attract, retain and motivate key talent.
Rights of Additional Authorized Shares
Any newly authorized shares of common stock will be identical to the shares of common stock now authorized and outstanding. The amendment will not affect the rights of current holders of common stock, none of whom have preemptive or similar rights to acquire the newly authorized shares.
Effects of the Proposal
Adoption of the Authorized Shares Proposal will have no immediate dilutive effect on the proportionate voting power or other rights of the Company’s existing stockholders. The Board has no current plan, arrangement, commitment or understanding to issue shares from the additional authorized shares provided by the Authorized Shares Proposal. However, any future issuance of additional authorized shares of our common stock, at the future direction of the Board, generally without the requirement of stockholder approval (unless specifically required by applicable law or Nasdaq regulation) may, among other things, dilute the earnings per share of common stock and the equity and voting rights of those holding common stock at the time such additional shares are issued.
Potential Anti-Takeover Effects
The Authorized Shares Proposal could adversely affect the ability of third parties to effect a takeover or a change in control by, for example, permitting issuances that would dilute the ownership of a person seeking to effect a change in the composition of our Board or contemplating a tender offer or other transaction that the Board determines is not in our best interests or in the best interests of our stockholders. The Board’s ability to issue substantial amounts of common stock without the need for stockholder approval, except as may be required by law or regulation, upon such terms and conditions as our Board may determine from time to time in the exercise of its business judgment, may, among other things, be used to create voting impediments with respect to a change in control or to dilute the stock ownership of stockholders seeking to obtain control of the Company. The issuance of common stock, while providing desirable flexibility in connection with potential financings and other corporate transactions, may have the effect of discouraging, delaying or preventing a change in control of the Company. Our Board, however, does not intend or view the Authorized Shares Proposal as an anti-takeover measure, nor does it contemplate its use in this manner at any time in the foreseeable future.
Appraisal Rights
Pursuant to the DGCL, stockholders are not entitled to appraisal rights with respect to the Authorized Shares Proposal.
Required Vote
Approval of the Authorized Shares Proposal amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation requires the affirmative “FOR” vote of at least a majority of the voting power of the outstanding common stock entitled to vote thereon. You may vote “FOR,” “AGAINST,” or “ABSTAIN” on this proposal. Abstentions have the same effect as a vote against the proposal.

PROPOSAL 2

OPT-OUT PROPOSAL
Section 203 of the DGCL generally prohibits a publicly held Delaware corporation from engaging in a business combination with an interested stockholder for a period of three years following the date that such person became an interested stockholder, unless (1) prior to such time, the board of directors of such corporation approves the transaction by which that the person becomes an interested stockholder, (2) upon the consummation of the transaction which resulted in the stockholder becoming an interested stockholder, the interested stockholder owned at least 85% of the outstanding voting stock of such corporation at the time the transaction commenced (excluding voting stock owned by directors who are also officers and certain employee stock plans), or (3) the business combination is approved by the board of directors and at a meeting of stockholders, not by written consent, by the affirmative vote of two-thirds of the outstanding voting stock which is not owned by the interested stockholder. Generally, a “business combination” is defined to include a merger, consolidation, a sale of assets and other transactions resulting in a financial benefit to the interested stockholder and an “interested stockholder” means any person (other than the corporation and any direct or indirect majority-owned subsidiary of the corporation) that (i) is the owner of 15% or more of the outstanding voting stock of the corporation, or (ii) is an affiliate or associate of the corporation and was the owner of 15% or more of the outstanding voting stock of the corporation at any time within the 3-year period immediately prior to the date on which it is sought to be determined whether such person is an interested stockholder, and the affiliates and associates of such person. The terms “affiliate,” “associate,” and “person” are each defined in Section 203 of the DGCL.
The Company is currently subject to Section 203 of the DGCL.
The description of the Opt-Out Proposal amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation is qualified in its entirety by reference to the text of the proposed revisions, which are set forth under Article XII in the Certificate of Incorporation and attached as Appendix A. Additions are indicated by underlining, and deletions are indicated by strike-throughs.
If our stockholders approve the Opt-Out Proposal, we intend to file a Certificate of Amendment with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware promptly following the Special Meeting. The provision expressly electing not to be governed by Section 203 of the DGCL will not be effective until 12 months after the effectiveness of the Certificate of Amendment. Until such time, we will be subject to the restrictions set forth in Section 203 of the DGCL.
Purpose of the Proposal
Opting out of Section 203 of the DGCL will allow the Board to review, evaluate and respond to stockholder ownership and related overtures and dialogue regarding possible business combinations as they are made, and eliminate the need for the Board to prospectively make any determinations about a significant stockholder’s motives or future plans. Additionally, opting out of Section 203 of the DGCL will remove any chilling effect such statute may have on stock ownership of the Company and facilitate candid and fluid stockholder engagement that is not subject to the restrictions of the statute, thereby enabling potential value creation for the stockholders of the Company. The Board and the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee determined that it would be advisable and in the best interests of the Company and our stockholders to undertake the amendments described in this proposal.
Required Vote
Approval of the Opt-Out Proposal amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation requires the affirmative “FOR” vote of at least a majority of the voting power of the outstanding common stock entitled to vote thereon. You may vote “FOR,” “AGAINST,” or “ABSTAIN” on this proposal. Abstentions have the same effect as a vote against the proposal.

ACT BY WRITTEN CONSENT PROPOSAL
Under Section 228 of the DGCL, unless otherwise provided in the certificate of incorporation, any action that can be taken at a meeting of stockholders may be taken without a meeting, without prior notice and without a vote if a consent, in writing or by electronic transmission, to the action is signed by the holders of outstanding stock having at least the minimum number of votes that would be necessary to authorize or take the action at a meeting at which all shares entitled to vote thereon were present and voted. Currently, our stockholders do not have the ability to act by written consent.
The description of the Act by Written Consent Proposal amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation is qualified in its entirety by reference to the text of the proposed revisions, which are set forth under Article VI in the Certificate of Incorporation and attached as Appendix A. Additions are indicated by underlining, and deletions are indicated by strike-throughs. Currently, Article VI(B) prohibits our stockholders from taking any action by written consent. As reflected in Appendix A, this restriction is being deleted from the Certificate of Incorporation.
The Act by Written Consent Proposal amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation would become effective upon the filing of a Certificate of Amendment with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware, which we would file promptly following the Special Meeting if our stockholders approve the Act by Written Consent Proposal.
Purpose of the Proposal
Taking action by written consent in lieu of a meeting is a means stockholders can use to raise important matters outside the normal annual meeting cycle. After continued evaluation of our corporate governance practices and careful consideration of views held by the investment community, the Board and the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee determined that it would be advisable and in the best interests of the Company and our stockholders to undertake the amendments described in this proposal.
Required Vote
Approval of the Act by Written Consent Proposal amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation requires the affirmative “FOR” vote from the holders of at least sixty-six and two-thirds percent (66 2/3%) of the voting power of shares outstanding and entitled to vote. You may vote “FOR,” “AGAINST,” or “ABSTAIN” on this proposal. Abstentions have the same effect as a vote against the proposal.

GOVERNANCE PROPOSALS
After continued evaluation of our corporate governance practices and careful consideration of views held by the investment community, the Board and the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee determined that it would be advisable and in the best interests of the Company and our stockholders to undertake the amendments described in this proposal. There are four sub-proposals comprising the Governance Proposals amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation as described below.
The description of the Governance Proposals amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation is qualified in its entirety by reference to the text of the proposed revisions, which are set forth under Article IV, Article VI(A)(2), Article VI(A)(3) and Article VII in the Certificate of Incorporation and attached as Appendix A. Additions are indicated by underlining, and deletions are indicated by strike-throughs.
The Governance Proposals amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation would become effective upon the filing of a Certificate of Amendment with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware, which we would file promptly following the Special Meeting if our stockholders approve the Governance Proposals.
Authorized Classes of Stock
All of the Class 1 Common Stock has previously converted to Class 2 Common Stock. The proposed amendments to the Certificate of Incorporation eliminate remaining references to the dual structure of Class 1 Common Stock and Class 2 Common Stock. Instead, the Certificate of Incorporation provides that the Company is authorized to issue two classes of stock, consisting of common stock and “blank check” preferred stock. Upon the effectiveness of the Certificate of Incorporation, each share of the Class 2 Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to the effectiveness of the Certificate of Incorporation, will be renamed as and become one share of common stock.
Purpose of the Proposal
In light of all of the outstanding Class 1 Common Stock having converted to Class 2 Common Stock, additional amendments to the Certificate of Incorporation are appropriate to eliminate references to the dual common stock structure of Class 1 Common Stock and Class 2 Common Stock, and instead authorize the issuance of two classes of stock of the Company - common stock and preferred stock, with the name of the existing Class 2 Common Stock being changed to “common stock.”
Declassification of Board
Currently, the Certificate of Incorporation provides that the Board is divided into three classes, with each class serving a staggered three-year term, and only one class being eligible for re-election each annual meeting. Specifically:
The directors designated as Class I directors have terms expiring at the 2022 annual meeting of stockholders;
The directors designated as Class II directors have terms expiring at the 2023 annual meeting of stockholders; and
The directors designated as Class III directors have terms expiring at the 2021 annual meeting of stockholders.

Purpose of the Proposal
Our Board considered the classified board structure compared to an annual voting standard for the election of directors, analyzed current corporate governance trends, and evaluated the appropriateness of a classified Board in light of our overall corporate governance structure and ongoing stockholder engagement efforts. In connection with this review our Board considered the advantages of maintaining the classified board structure as well as the advantages of declassifying the Board. The advantages of the classified board structure include that a classified board structure may promote board continuity, encourage a long-term perspective by management and the Board, and provide protection against certain abusive takeover tactics. While our Board believes that these are important considerations, our Board also understands that many investors believe that annually elected boards increase accountability of directors to a company’s stockholders and encourage directors to focus on stockholder interests. Furthermore, the Board recognizes that stockholders of public companies are generally supportive of shifting from classified boards to the annual election of directors. In addition, our Board believes this amendment better aligns our governance with what is considered to be a best practice in corporate governance by the investor community.
Upon the recommendation of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of our Board, the Board has determined that it is in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders to amend the Certificate of Incorporation to eliminate the classified structure of the Board and to provide for the annual election of all directors.
Impact of the Proposal - Annual Elections of Directors
As discussed above, our Certificate of Incorporation currently provides for a “classified” board structure, which means that our Board is divided into three classes, with each class elected every three years. Under this classified board structure, directors are elected to terms that expire on the annual meeting date three years following the annual meeting at which they were elected, and the terms are “staggered” so that the terms of approximately one-third of the directors expire each year.
The Governance Proposals would become effective upon the filing of a Certificate of Amendment with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware, which we would file promptly following the Special Meeting if our stockholders approve the Governance Proposals. As a result, if this proposal is approved, each of the nine members of the current Board will stand for re-election at the next annual meeting of our stockholders and until his or her successor shall be elected and qualified, or his or her earlier death, resignation, or removal from office.
Elimination of Corporate Opportunity Doctrine Limitations
Under Section 144 of the DGCL, certain contracts or transactions in which one or more of a corporation’s directors has an interest are not void or voidable solely because of such interest, provided that one of the following conditions is met: (i) obtaining majority approval in good faith of the disinterested directors following full disclosure of the material facts; (ii) obtaining majority approval in good faith by the stockholders following full disclosure of the material facts; or (iii) the transaction is fair to the corporation. Under Section 122(17) of the DGCL, every corporation has the ability to renounce in its certificate of incorporation or by board action any interest or expectancy of the corporation in, or in being offered an opportunity to participate in, specific business opportunities that are presented to the corporation or to the officers, directors or stockholders. The current Certificate of Incorporation provides that
12

TABLE OF CONTENTS

the Company renounces any interest or expectancy of the Company or any of its affiliated companies in, or in being offered an opportunity to participate in, any “dual opportunity” (as defined in the current Certificate of Incorporation) about which a “dual role person” (as defined in the current Certificate of Incorporation) acquires knowledge.
Purpose of the Proposal
The removal of the corporate opportunity doctrine provisions will ensure that directors, officers and controlling stockholders will not be able to take advantage of opportunities beneficial to the Company for themselves without first disclosing the opportunity to the Board and giving the Board the opportunity to decline the opportunity on behalf of the Company.
Removal of Directors
In the case of a corporation with a classified board of directors, stockholders may remove a director only for cause, unless the certificate of incorporation otherwise. Currently, any individual director or directors may be removed for cause by the affirmative vote of the holders of at least two-thirds of the voting power of all then-outstanding shares of capital stock of Tilray entitled to vote generally at an election of directors.
Purpose of the Proposal
Under the DGCL, directors serving on a classified board may be removed by stockholders only for cause (unless otherwise provided in the certificate of incorporation), while directors serving on a non-classified board may be removed by stockholders with or without cause. Thus, the proposed amendments if approved by our stockholders will also give our stockholders the ability to remove a director from the Board without cause beginning at next annual meeting of stockholders when the Board is fully declassified.
The Board believes that allowing the removal of directors from the Board with or without cause is appropriate because such changes will increase director accountability to stockholders and allow stockholders the ability to influence corporate governance policies and will further hold the Board and management of the Company accountable for implementing these policies. In addition, if the classified board structure is removed so that directors are elected to one-year terms, DGCL does not permit provisions specifying that directors may be removed only for cause.
Required Vote
Approval of the Governance Proposals requires the affirmative “FOR” vote from the holders of at least sixty-six and two-thirds percent (66 2/3%) of the voting power of shares outstanding and entitled to vote. You may vote “FOR,” “AGAINST,” or “ABSTAIN” on this proposal. Abstentions have the same effect as a vote against the proposal.

CONFORMING AMENDMENTS PROPOSAL
Until recently, we were a “controlled company,” and as such our Certificate of Incorporation included several provisions which are no longer applicable. In addition, this proposal implements certain other administrative and conforming amendments and changes to the Certificate of Incorporation as necessary in light of the foregoing proposals.
The description of the Conforming Amendments Proposal amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation is qualified in its entirety by reference to the text of the proposed revisions, which are set forth under Article IV and other minor references in the Certificate of Incorporation and attached as Appendix A. Additions are indicated by underlining, and deletions are indicated by strike-throughs.
The Conforming Amendments Proposal amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation would become effective upon the filing of a Certificate of Amendment with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware, which we would file promptly following the Special Meeting if our stockholders approve the Conforming Amendments Proposal.
Purpose of the Proposal
The proposed amendments provide for certain other changes, including eliminating certain provisions related to its prior status as a “controlled company” within the meaning of the listing rules of Nasdaq, which are no longer applicable. In addition, the Certificate of Incorporation being amended and restated in its entirety, will require moving certain provisions to other articles or sections of the certificate and changing the wording of various provisions. Additional amendments to the Certificate of Incorporation are appropriate to eliminate obsolete language that is no longer be applicable and to make such other changes that are more appropriate for an established public company.
Required Vote
Approval of the Conforming Amendments Proposal amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation requires the affirmative “FOR” vote from the holders of at least sixty-six and two-thirds percent (66 2/3%) of the voting power of shares outstanding and entitled to vote. You may vote “FOR,” “AGAINST,” or “ABSTAIN” on this proposal. Abstentions have the same effect as a vote against the proposal.

PROPOSAL 6

ADJOURNMENT PROPOSAL
If at the Special Meeting, the number of shares of common stock present or represented and voting in favor of one or more of the prior proposals is insufficient to approve such proposal, our management may move to adjourn the Special Meeting in order to enable our Board to continue to solicit additional proxies in favor of such proposals. In that event, you will be asked to vote only upon the adjournment, postponement or continuation proposal and not on any other proposals.
In this proposal, we are asking you to authorize the holder of any proxy solicited by our Board to vote in favor of adjourning, postponing or continuing the Special Meeting and any later adjournments. If our stockholders approve the adjournment, postponement or continuation proposal, we could adjourn, postpone or continue the Special Meeting, and any adjourned session of the Special Meeting, to use the additional time to solicit additional proxies in favor of Proposals 1-5, including the solicitation of proxies from stockholders that have previously voted against the proposal. Among other things, approval of the adjournment, postponement or continuation proposal could mean that, even if proxies representing a sufficient number of votes against Proposals 1-5 have been received, we could adjourn, postpone or continue the Special Meeting without a vote on Proposals 1-5 and seek to convince the holders of those shares to change their votes to votes in favor of the approval of Proposals 1-5.
Required Vote
Approval of any adjournment of the Special Meeting, if necessary or appropriate, to permit further solicitation of additional proxies if there are not sufficient votes at the time of the Special Meeting to approve Proposals 1-5 requires the affirmative “FOR” vote of a majority of the voting power present or represented by proxy. You may vote “FOR,” “AGAINST,” or “ABSTAIN” on this proposal. Abstentions have no effect on this proposal.

SECURITY OWNERSHIP OF CERTAIN BENEFICIAL OWNERS AND MANAGEMENT
The following table sets forth information with respect to the beneficial ownership of our capital stock as of June [•], 2021, by:
each person, or group of affiliated persons, known by us to beneficially own more than 5% of our Class 2 common stock;
each of our named executive officers;
each of our directors; and
all of our executive officers and directors as a group.
The percentage of shares beneficially owned shown in the table is based on shares of Class 2 Common Stock outstanding as of June [•], 2021. Beneficial ownership is determined according to the rules of the SEC and generally means that a person has beneficial ownership of a security if he, she or it possesses sole or shared voting or investment power of that security, including stock options or warrants that are exercisable within 60 days of June [•], 2021 or restricted stock units that will vest within 60 days of June [•], 2021. Our shares of Class 2 common stock issuable pursuant to stock options, warrants or restricted stock units are deemed outstanding for computing the percentage of the person holding such options and the percentage of any group of which the person is a member but are not deemed outstanding for computing the percentage of any other person. Except as indicated by the footnotes below, we believe, based on the information furnished to us, that the persons named in the table below have sole voting and investment power with respect to all shares of Class 2 Common Stock shown that they beneficially own, subject to community property laws where applicable. The information does not necessarily indicate beneficial ownership for any other purpose, including for purposes of Section 13(d) and 13(g) of the Securities Act.
Unless otherwise indicated, the address of each beneficial owner listed in the table below is c/o Tilray, Inc., 655 Madison Avenue, 19th Floor, New York, NY 10065.

Upon the occurrence of such automatic conversion of the Class 1 Common Stock, the holders of Class 1 Common Stock so converted shall surrender the certificates (if such shares are certificated) representing such shares at the office of the Company or any transfer agent for the Class 2 Common Stock.

  7. Procedures. The Company may, from time to time, establish such policies and procedures relating to the conversion of the Class 1 Common Stock to Class 2 Common Stock and the general administration of this dual class stock structure, including the issuance of stock certificates with respect thereto, as it may deem necessary or advisable, and may from time to time request that holders of shares of Class 1 Common Stock furnish certifications, affidavits or other proof to the Company as it deems necessary to verify the ownership of Class 1 Common Stock,
