Section 2.02 Upon the surrender of Partnership Interests by each Holder in accordance with the terms and conditions hereof, TILT will issue to such Holder the number of Common Shares calculated pursuant to Section 3.01.
Section 2.03 Any Rights surrendered by a Holder to TILT upon the terms and subject to the conditions hereof shall be deemed to be cancelled by TILT upon receipt.
Section 2.04 Each Holder agrees and acknowledges that the Rights being issued to such Holder:
(a) have not been registered under the Securities Act, the securities laws of any state or any other applicable securities laws and are being issued in reliance upon exemptions from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and such laws;
(b) are being acquired for investment only and may not be offered for sale, pledged, hypothecated, sold, assigned or transferred at any time except in compliance with (i) the Securities Act, any applicable securities laws of any state and any other applicable securities laws; (ii) the terms and conditions of this Agreement; and (iii) any other terms and conditions agreed to in writing between TILT and such Holder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Rights may be transferred by a Holder to such Holder’s family member or trust for the benefit of the Holder if the transferee agrees in writing to be subject to the terms hereof to the same extent as if the transferee were an original Holder hereunder (a “Permitted Transfer”) unless such Permitted Transfer would prevent the Partnership from being treated as a publicly traded partnership; and
(c) may not be transferred except with the written consent of TILT and in compliance with Applicable Laws, including in compliance with the registration requirements under the Securities Act or an exemption thereto, this Agreement, and any other terms and conditions agreed to in writing by TILT and such Holder, and purchasers and other transferees of such Rights will be required to bear the risk of their investment or acquisition indefinitely.
Section 2.05 The Rights are being issued in non-certificated form; provided, that TILT may issue certificates to a Holder representing the Rights held by such Holder and such certificates may include any information or legends as determined in the discretion of TILT.
Section 3.01 Exchange of Partnership Interests for Common Shares. Subject to Section 3.02(e) and the LP Agreement, each Holder shall be entitled at any time and from time to time upon the terms and subject to the conditions hereof, to surrender Partnership Interests to TILT, or the Partnership on behalf of TILT, if so desired by TILT, in an amount that includes no fewer than the lesser of (a) when aggregated with all Partnership Interests exchanged by such Holder and its Affiliates on the applicable Exchange Date, 5,000 Partnership Interests (subject to adjustment as provided in Section 3.03) and (b) all of the Partnership Interests held by such Holder in exchange (such exchange, an “Exchange”) for the delivery by TILT, or the Partnership on behalf of TILT, if so desired by TILT, to such Holder of a number of Common Shares that is equal to the product of the number of Partnership Interests surrendered multiplied by the Exchange Rate. Subject to Section 3.02(e) and the terms of the LP Agreement, the right to effect an Exchange hereunder may be exercised by any Holder at any time and from time to time from and after the date of this Agreement.
Section 3.02 Exchange Procedures; Notices and Revocations.
(a) A Holder may exercise the right to effect an Exchange as set forth in Section 3.01 by delivering a written notice of exchange in respect of the Partnership Interests to be Exchanged substantially in the form of Exhibit A hereto (the “Notice of Exchange”), duly executed by such Holder or such Holder’s duly authorized attorney, to TILT and the Partnership at the address set forth in Section 5.03 during normal business hours, or if any agent for the Exchange is duly appointed and acting (the “Exchange Agent”), to the office of the Exchange Agent during normal business hours. If Partnership Interests are then represented by certificates, certificate(s) representing at least the number of Partnership Interests being exchanged, with instrument(s) of transfer reasonably acceptable to TILT and the Partnership and executed in blank, shall be delivered by the Exchanging Holder to TILT and the Partnership at the address set forth in Section 5.03 during normal business hours or to the offices of the Exchange Agent during normal business hours. If such certificates have been lost, the Exchanging Holder may deliver, in lieu of such certificate(s), an affidavit of lost certificates. TILT shall take such actions as may be required, including the issuance and sale of Common Shares to or for the account of the Partnership for the delivery to the Exchanging Holder of a number of Common Shares that is equal to the product of the number of Partnership Interests surrendered multiplied by the Exchange Rate, to ensure the performance of the Partnership of its obligations under this Article III.
(b) Contingent Notice of Exchange and Revocation by Holders.
(i) Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, a Holder may withdraw or amend a Notice of Exchange, in whole or in part, prior to the effectiveness of the Exchange, at any time prior to 5:00 p.m. New York time, on the Business Day immediately preceding the Exchange Date (or any such later time as may be required by Applicable Law) by delivery of a written notice of withdrawal to TILT and the Partnership or the Exchange Agent, specifying (1) the number of withdrawn Partnership Interests, (2) if any, the number of Partnership Interests as to which the Notice of Exchange remains in effect and (3) if the Holder so determines, a new Exchange Date or any other new or revised information permitted in the Notice of Exchange.
(ii) Each Exchange shall be deemed to be effective immediately prior to the close of business on the Exchange Date. As promptly as practicable on or after the Exchange Date, TILT, or the Partnership on behalf of TILT, shall deliver or cause to be delivered to the Exchanging Holder the number of Common Shares deliverable upon such Exchange, registered in the name of such Holder.
(iii) The Common Shares issued upon an Exchange shall bear a legend in substantially the following form:
THE TRANSFER OF THESE SECURITIES HAS NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE U.S. SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “SECURITIES ACT”), OR UNDER THE SECURITIES LAWS OF ANY OTHER JURISDICTION, AND MAY NOT BE SOLD OR TRANSFERRED WITHIN THE UNITED STATES OR TO OR FOR THE ACCOUNT OR BENEFIT OF U.S. PERSONS (AS DEFINED IN REGULATION S UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT) OTHER THAN IN CERTAIN TRANSACTIONS EXEMPT FROM, OR NOT SUBJECT TO, THE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS OF THE SECURITIES ACT (OR OTHER APPLICABLE LAW). THESE SECURITIES MAY BE TRANSFERRED ONLY (A) WITHIN THE UNITED STATES IN ACCORDANCE WITH RULE 144 UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT, OR ANOTHER EXEMPTION FROM THE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS OF THE SECURITIES ACT, AND (B) OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES IN A TRANSACTION COMPLYING WITH THE PROVISIONS OF RULE 904 UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT.
(c) If (i) any Common Shares may be sold pursuant to a registration statement that has been declared effective by the SEC, (ii) all of the applicable conditions of Rule 144 are met, or (iii) the legend (or a portion thereof) otherwise ceases to be applicable, TILT, upon the written request of the Holder thereof, shall promptly provide such Holder or its respective transferees, without any expense to such Persons (other than applicable transfer taxes and similar governmental charges, if any) with new certificates (or evidence of book-entry share) for securities of like tenor not bearing the provisions of the legend with respect to which the restriction has terminated. In connection therewith, such Holder shall provide TILT with such information in its possession as TILT may reasonably request in connection with the removal of any such legend.
(d) TILT, the Partnership and each exchanging Holder shall bear their own respective expenses in connection with the consummation of any Exchange by such Holder, whether or not any such Exchange is ultimately consummated; provided, however, that TILT will pay any transfer taxes, stamp taxes or duties, or other similar taxes in connection with, or arising by reason of, any Exchange; provided, further, that if any Common Shares are to be delivered in a name other than that of the Holder that requested the Exchange (or CDS, DTC or a nominee for the account of a participant of CDS or DTC that will hold the shares for the account of such Holder), then such Holder and/or the Person in whose name such shares are to be delivered shall pay to TILT or the Partnership, as applicable, the amount of any transfer taxes, stamp taxes or duties, or other similar taxes in connection with, or arising by reason of, such Exchange or shall establish to the reasonable satisfaction of TILT and the Partnership that such tax has been paid or is not payable.
(e) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Article III, a Holder shall not be entitled to effect an Exchange (and, if attempted, any such Exchange shall be void ab initio), and TILT and the Partnership shall have the right to refuse to honor any request to effect an Exchange, at any time or during any period, if TILT or the Partnership shall reasonably determine that such Exchange (i) would be prohibited by any Applicable Law (including the unavailability of any requisite registration statement filed under the Securities Act or any exemption from the registration requirements thereunder, or any exemption from the prospectus and registration requirements under applicable Canadian securities laws) or (ii) would not be permitted under (x) the LP Agreement, (y) other agreements with TILT, the Partnership or any of their respective controlled Affiliates to which such Exchanging Holder may be party or (z) any written policies of TILT, the Partnership or any of the Partnership’s subsidiaries related to unlawful or inappropriate trading applicable to its directors, officers or other personnel to which the Exchanging Holder is subject.
Section 3.03 Adjustment.
(a) The Exchange Rate shall be adjusted accordingly if there is any subdivision (by any stock or unit split, stock or unit dividend or distribution, reclassification, reorganization, recapitalization or otherwise) or combination (by reverse stock or unit split, reclassification, reorganization, recapitalization or otherwise) of the Units that is not accompanied by a substantively identical subdivision or combination of Common Shares. If there is any reclassification, reorganization, recapitalization or other similar transaction in which Common Shares are converted or changed into another security, securities or other property, then upon any subsequent Exchange, an Exchanging Holder shall be entitled to receive the amount of such security, securities or other property that such Exchanging Holder would have received if such Exchange had occurred immediately prior to the effective date of such reclassification, reorganization, recapitalization or other similar transaction, taking into account any adjustment as a result of any subdivision (by any split, dividend or distribution, reclassification, reorganization, recapitalization or otherwise) or combination (by reverse split, reclassification, reorganization, recapitalization or otherwise) of such security, securities or other property that occurs after the effective time of such reclassification, reorganization, recapitalization or other similar transaction. For the avoidance of doubt, if there is any reclassification, reorganization, recapitalization or other similar transaction in which Common Shares are converted or changed into another security, securities or other property, this Section 3.03(a) shall continue to be applicable with respect to such security or other property. This Agreement shall apply to, and all references to “Units” and “Rights” shall be deemed to include, any security, securities or other property of TILT or the Partnership which may be issued in respect of, in exchange for or in substitution of Partnership Interests by reason of stock or unit split, reverse stock or unit split, stock or unit dividend or distribution, combination, reclassification, reorganization, recapitalization, merger, exchange (other than an Exchange) or other transaction.
(b) This Agreement shall apply to the Partnership Interests held by the Holders and their Permitted Transferees as of the date hereof, as well as any Partnership Interests hereafter acquired by a Holder and his or her or its Permitted Transferees.
Section 3.04 Tender Offers and Other Events with Respect to TILT. In the event that a tender offer, share exchange offer, issuer bid, take-over bid, recapitalization or similar transaction with respect to Common Shares (a “TILT Offer”) is proposed by TILT or is proposed to TILT or its shareholders and approved by the Board or is otherwise effected or to be effected with the consent or approval of the Board, the Holders of Partnership Interests shall be permitted to participate in such TILT Offer by delivery of a Notice of Exchange (which Notice of Exchange shall be effective immediately prior to the consummation of such TILT Offer (and, for the avoidance of doubt, shall be contingent upon such TILT Offer and not be effective if such TILT Offer is not consummated)). In the case of a TILT Offer proposed by TILT, TILT will use its reasonable best efforts expeditiously and in good faith to take all such actions and do all such things as are necessary or desirable to enable and permit the Holders of Partnership Interests to participate in such TILT Offer to the same extent or on an economically equivalent basis as the holders of Common Shares without discrimination; provided, that without limiting the generality of this sentence, TILT will use its reasonable best efforts expeditiously and in good faith to ensure that such Holders may participate in each such TILT Offer without being required to Exchange Partnership Interests. For the avoidance of doubt, in no event shall the Holders of Partnership Interests be entitled to receive in such TILT Offer aggregate consideration for each Partnership Interest that is greater than the consideration payable in respect of each Common Share in connection with a TILT Offer.
Section 3.05 Common Shares to be Issued.
(a) TILT shall at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized but unissued Common Shares, solely for the purpose of issuance upon an Exchange, the maximum number of Common Shares as shall be deliverable upon Exchange of all then-outstanding Partnership Interests; provided, that nothing contained herein shall be construed to preclude TILT or the Partnership from satisfying its obligations in respect of an Exchange by delivery of Common Shares that are held in the treasury of TILT or by delivery of purchased Common Shares (which may or may not be held in the treasury of TILT).
(b) TILT agrees that if it becomes a reporting company under the Exchange Act, it will take such steps as may be required to cause to qualify for exemption under Rule 16b-3(d) or (e), as applicable, under the Exchange Act, and to be exempt for purposes of Section 16(b) under the Exchange Act, any acquisitions from, or dispositions to, TILT of equity securities of TILT (including derivative securities with respect thereto) and any securities that may be deemed to be equity securities or derivative securities of TILT for such purposes that result from the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, by each officer or director of TILT, including any director by deputization. The resolutions authorizing such transactions shall be approved by either TILT’s Board or a committee thereof composed solely of two or more Non-Employee Directors (as defined in Rule 16b-3 under the Exchange Act) of TILT.
Section 3.06 Distributions. No Exchange shall impair the right of the Exchanging Holder to receive any distributions payable on the Partnership Interests so exchanged in respect of a record date that occurs prior to the Exchange Date for such Exchange. No adjustments in respect of dividends or distributions on any Partnership Interests will be made on the Exchange of any Partnership Interest, and if the Exchange Date with respect to a Partnership Interest occurs after the record date for the payment of a dividend or other distribution on Partnership Interests but before the date of the payment, then the registered Holder of the Partnership Interest at the close of business on the record date will be entitled to receive the dividend or other distribution payable on the Partnership Interest on the payment date notwithstanding the Exchange of the Partnership Interests or a default in payment of the dividend or distribution due on the Exchange Date, and, for the avoidance of doubt, no Exchanging Holder shall have the right to receive any distributions (including tax distributions) on any exchanged Partnership Interest with a record date that occurs from and after any Exchange Date. For the avoidance of doubt, no Exchanging Holder shall be entitled to receive, in respect of a single record date, distributions or dividends both on Partnership Interests exchanged by such Holder and on Common Shares received by such Holder in such Exchange.

Section 5.06 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, and by the different parties hereto in separate counterparts, each of which when executed shall be deemed to be an original but all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same agreement.
Section 5.07 Entire Agreement. This Agreement and, as applicable, the LP Agreement, constitute the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement and supersede all prior agreements and understandings, both oral and written, between the parties with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement. Except as provided in Section 5.04, nothing in this Agreement shall create any third-party beneficiary rights in favor of any Person or other party hereto.
Section 5.08 Severability. If any term or other provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced by any rule of law or public policy, all other conditions and provisions of this Agreement shall nevertheless remain in full force and effect so long as the economic or legal substance of the transactions is not affected in any manner materially adverse to any party. Upon a determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced, the parties hereto shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect the original intent of the parties as closely as possible in a mutually acceptable manner in order that the transactions contemplated hereby be consummated as originally contemplated to the fullest extent possible.

In the event that this Agreement is amended, whether or not the prior written consent of any Holder is required under the foregoing sentence, TILT or the Partnership shall provide a copy of such amendment to all Holders. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement (including this Section 5.09), (a) the execution and delivery of a joinder to this Agreement pursuant to Section 5.01 shall not require the consent of any Holder or any other party hereto and shall not be deemed to be an amendment or modification to this Agreement and (b) Section 5.01(c), clause (iii) of Section 5.04 and this Section 5.09 may only be amended or modified, in whole in part, at any time and from time to time with the consent of the holders of a majority of the issued and outstanding Units and Rights held by Partners other than the Non-Party Partners.
Section 5.10 Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware, without regard to principles of conflicts of law rules of such State that would result in the application of the laws of a jurisdiction other than the State of Delaware.
Section 5.11 Tax Treatment. This Agreement shall be treated as part of the LP Agreement as described in Section 761(c) of the Code and Sections 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(h) and 1.761-1(c) of the Treasury Regulations promulgated thereunder. As required by the Code and the Treasury Regulations, the parties shall report any Exchange consummated hereunder as a taxable sale of the Units by a Holder to TILT, and no party shall take a contrary position on any income tax return or amendment thereof.
Section 5.12 Independent Nature of Holders’ Rights and Obligations. The obligations of each Holder hereunder are several and not joint with the obligations of any other Holder, and no Holder shall be responsible in any way for the performance of the obligations of any other Holder under hereunder. The decision of each Holder to enter into to this Agreement has been made by such Holder independently of any other Holder. Nothing contained herein, and no action taken by any Holder pursuant hereto, shall be deemed to constitute the Holders as a partnership, an association, a joint venture or any other kind of entity, or create a presumption that the Holders are in any way acting in concert or as a group with respect to such obligations or the transactions contemplated hereby.
Section 5.13 Specific Enforcement. The parties hereto acknowledge that the remedies at law of the other parties for a breach or threatened breach of this Agreement would be inadequate and, in recognition of this fact, any party to this Agreement, without posting any bond, and in addition to all other remedies that may be available, shall be entitled to equitable relief in the form of specific performance, a temporary restraining order, a temporary or permanent injunction or any other equitable remedy that may then be available.
