The Agreement, a copy of which will be available under the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com, sets out the terms of the statutory plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement") involving Invictus, its security holders, and Poda, which Arrangement, if completed, will result in shareholders of Invictus as at the effective date of the Arrangement (the "Effective Date") being entitled to receive, for each common share of Invictus (an "Invictus Share") held as at such date:

(a) one post-Arrangement common share of Invictus (a "New Invictus Share"); and

(b) one common share of Poda (a "Poda Share").

Holders of outstanding Invictus warrants ("Warrants") immediately prior to the Effective Date will receive, upon exercise of each such Warrant at the same original exercise price, one New Invictus Share and one Poda Share, in lieu of the one Invictus Share that was issuable upon exercise of such Warrant immediately prior to the Effective Date.

Invictus will be seeking shareholder approval of the Arrangement at the annual general and special meeting of shareholders scheduled to be held on October 18, 2018 (the "Meeting"), in accordance with the terms of the Agreement and the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia).

At the Meeting, the shareholders of the Company as of the record date (the "Shareholders") will be, among other matters, electing Directors of the Company, appointing the Auditors of the Company, passing an ordinary resolution providing the required annual approval of the Company's 10% "rolling" stock option plan and will also be asked to pass a special resolution approving the Arrangement.

The Notice of the Meeting, along with the Management Information Circular, will be mailed to the Shareholders on September 20, 2018, as well as posted under the Company's profile on SEDAR. The Management Information Circular will describe in detail the matters to be addressed at the Meeting.

Following Shareholder approval of the Arrangement at the Meeting and receipt of requisite regulatory and court approvals, the Effective Date for the exchange and distribution of the common shares of Poda will be announced. Shareholders will receive a notice from the Company's transfer agent, Computershare, with instructions on how to obtain the shares they are entitled to receive under the Arrangement.

Completion of the Arrangement is contingent on completion of closing conditions associated with the Arrangement, such as requisite corporate, regulatory and court approvals.

Poda is engaged in the development of a new and improved vaporization technology. This innovative system provides consumers with consistent performance and uses patent-pending zero cleaning technology. The Poda system can be paired with almost any vaporizable substance, including cannabis, tobacco, e-liquids, concentrates, coffee and more. Other pod-based vaporizers currently on the market require cleaning and produce significant waste. Poda offers biodegradable pods.
