/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/

VANCOUVER, BC, Dec. 8, 2022 /CNW/ - RYU Apparel Inc. (TSXV: RYU); (OTCQB: RYPPF); (FWB: RYA) ("RYU" or the "Company"), announces that further to its news release dated December 1, 2022, it has received acceptance from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") to extend the expiry date of 13,709,612 common share purchase warrants (the "Warrants"), issued by the Company in connection with a private placement financing that closed on December 22, 2020, from December 22, 2022 to December 22, 2025.

Certain of the Warrants are held by parties who are considered to be "related parties" of the Company (such warrants, the "Related Party Warrants"). Therefore, the amendment of the Related Party Warrants constitutes a "related party transaction" as contemplated by Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Shareholders in Special Transactions, and TSXV Policy 5.9 - Protection of Minority Shareholders in Special Transactions. However, the exemptions from formal valuation and minority approval requirements provided for by these guidelines can be relied upon because neither the fair market value of the Related Party Warrants nor the fair market value of the consideration paid for the Related Party Warrants exceeds 25% of the market capitalization of the Company.  A material change report in respect of this related party transaction will be filed by the Company. The extension of the Warrants would only be effective upon TSXV approval and receipt of the requisite confirmation from the holders of the Warrants.
