Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - September 28, 2022) - Hypercharge Networks Corp. (the "Company" or "Hypercharge") is pleased to announce that it has satisfied the escrow release conditions (the "Release Conditions") for the release of escrowed funds from the Company's previously-announced C$6.0 million brokered private placement offering of subscription receipts (the "Subscription Receipts") at an issue price of C$0.60 per Subscription Receipt, which closed on June 1, 2022 (the "Offering"), including, among other things, receipt for the Company's final prospectus dated September 23, 2022 (the "Prospectus") qualifying the common shares underlying the Subscription Receipts (the "Underlying Shares"). Haywood Securities Inc. ("Haywood") acted as the lead agent and sole bookrunner for the Offering, together with a syndicate of agents, including Clarus Securities Inc., Eight Capital and Research Capital Corporation (together with Haywood, the "Agents").

In connection with the escrow release, the 10,000,000 Subscription Receipts issued pursuant to the Offering have been automatically exercised into 10,000,000 Underlying Shares. Pursuant to the Release Conditions, the common shares of the Company, including the Underlying Shares, are conditionally approved for listing on the NEO Exchange ("NEO") under the symbol HCEV. Listing is subject to the Company fulfilling all of NEO's listing requirements, including the minimum distribution requirements. NEO is a senior Canadian stock exchange based in Toronto.

In partial satisfaction of the corporate finance fee owed to Haywood in connection with the Offering, on the automatic exercise of the Subscription Receipts, the Company issued to Haywood an aggregate 41,666 Underlying Shares.

The Company expects to use the net proceeds from the Offering as described in the Prospectus.
