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

SALINAS, Calif., Dec. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Indus Holdings, Inc.
(“Indus” or the “Company”) (CSE:INDS; OTCQX:INDXF), a leading,
vertically-integrated, California-focused cannabis company announces the
closing of its previously announced underwritten public offering (the
“Offering”) of units of the Company (the “Units”). The Offering was
conducted by a syndicate of underwriters co-led by Canaccord Genuity Corp. and
Beacon Securities Limited, and including PI Financial Corp. (collectively, the
“Underwriters”) and consisted of the sale of 23,000,000 Units (including
the full exercise of the over-allotment option by the Underwriters) at a price
of C$1.50 per Unit (the “Offering Price”) for aggregate gross proceeds of
C$34,500,000,

Each Unit is comprised of one subordinate voting share of the Company (a
“Share”) and one-half of one Share purchase warrant of the Company (each
full Share purchase warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant is exercisable to
acquire one subordinate voting share of the Company (a “Warrant Share”)
until December 21, 2023 at an exercise price of C$2.20 per Warrant Share,
subject to adjustment in certain circumstances. The Company has received
approval from the Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE”) to list the
Warrants issued pursuant to the Offering, and the Warrants are expected to be
listed and posted for trading on the CSE under the symbol “INDS.WT” on or
about December 21, 2020, subject to the Company satisfying the remaining
requirements of the CSE.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering for the
development of an additional cultivation and production facility and working
capital and other general corporate purposes, as further described in the
prospectus supplement (the “Prospectus Supplement”) dated December 16,
2020 to the final base shelf prospectus (the “Base Prospectus”) of the
Company dated December 11, 2020.

The securities issued pursuant to the Offering were qualified for distribution
pursuant to the Prospectus Supplement and the Base Shelf Prospectus, filed in
each of the provinces of Canada, except Québec, and offered and sold outside
Canada to qualified investors in accordance with applicable law. The
Prospectus Supplement, Base Shelf Prospectus, and the documents incorporated
by reference therein, are available on the Company’s issuer profile on SEDAR
at www.sedar.com.

Certain directors and management of the Company (the “Insiders”) purchased
an aggregate of 1,227,800 Units pursuant to the Offering. Participation by the
Insiders in the Offering was considered a “related party transaction”
pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61- 101 – Protection of Minority
Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Offering was
considered, and ultimately approved by the board of directors of the Company
on December 14, 2020. The Company was exempt from the requirements to obtain a
formal valuation or minority shareholder approval in connection with the
Insiders’ participation in the Offering in reliance of sections 5.5(a) and
5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101. A material change report in connection with the
participation of Insiders in the Offering will be filed less than 21 days in
advance of the closing of the Offering, which the Company deemed reasonable in
the circumstances so as to be able to avail itself of potential financing
opportunities and complete the Offering in an expeditious manner.

1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”) or any state securities laws.

Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such forward-looking information and
forward-looking statements are not representative of historical facts or
information or current condition, but instead represent only Indus’ beliefs
regarding future events, plans or objectives, many of which, by their nature,

the contemplated timing for the commencement of trading of the Warrants, and

statements. Such forward-looking information and statements reflect Indus’
current beliefs and are based on information currently available to Indus and
on assumptions Indus believes are reasonable.

Forward-looking information and statements are subject to known and unknown
risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results,

different from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking information
and statements. Such risks and other factors may include, but are not limited

uncertainties; general capital market conditions and market prices for
securities; delay or failure to receive board or regulatory approvals; the
actual results of future operations; operating and development costs;
competition; changes in legislation or regulations affecting Indus; the timing
and availability of external financing on acceptable terms; the available
funds of Indus and the anticipated use of such funds; delay or inability to
complete an acquisition; favorable production levels and outputs; prolonged or
more detrimental than anticipated impact on production yields resulting from
the wildfires in 2020; the stability of pricing of cannabis products; the
level of demand for cannabis product; the availability of third-party service
providers and other inputs for Indus’ operations; lack of qualified, skilled
labor or loss of key individuals; and risks and delays resulting from the
COVID-19 pandemic. A description of additional assumptions used to develop
such forward-looking information and statements and a description of

could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in

cause results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. Readers are
cautioned that the foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. Readers are
further cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking information
and statements as there can be no assurance that the plans, intentions or
expectations upon which they are placed will occur. Forward-looking
