The Company announced on September 27, 2022 that it had initiated a strategic review of its assets and operations with the aim of maximizing value for the Company and its stakeholders. On November 9, 2022, the Monarques Board of Directors formed a special committee to lead this strategic review to assess a range of alternatives, which could include the sale of part or all of the Company or its assets, a merger or other business combination with another party, a potential investment in Monarch or other strategic initiatives.

The Company will need additional financing before the end of 2022 to improve its working capital, meet its debt payment obligations and enter into payment agreements with its suppliers. Monarch management has made good progress in its discussions with suppliers and creditors. In addition, a number of selected parties have been contacted by management regarding the Company’s assets. However, there can be no assurance that the strategic review process will progress in such a way as to enable a transaction or transactions to be completed in a timely manner and generate sufficient value to meet the Company’s obligations.
