Hot Chili Limited (ASX:HCH; TSXV:HCH; OTCQB:HHLKF) ("Hot Chili" or the "Company") advises that with respect to the quarter ended 31 December 2021, the Company has paid to the holders (the "Holders") of convertible notes (the "Convertible Notes") issued on 22 June 2017 and 8 September 2017, interest (the "Interest Debt") in the amount of A$139,616.60 by the issue of 82,043 ordinary shares of the Company ("Ordinary Shares") at a deemed issue price of A$1.70101 per Ordinary Share.

In addition, Hot Chili has issued 38,224 Ordinary Shares at a deemed value of A$1.6665 per Ordinary Share to certain Holders who elected to convert their Convertible Notes in accordance with the terms of the Convertible Notes (the "Conversion Debt"). The Convertible Notes were issued by the Company on the terms set out in a trust deed dated May 25, 2017 and varied June 19, 2017.

The Ordinary Shares issued in satisfaction of the Interest Debt and the Conversion Debt were issued to persons in offshore jurisdictions pursuant to Ontario Securities Commission Rule 72-503 - Distributions Outside Canada and such securities are not subject to a statutory hold period. Ordinary Shares that were issued to an entity controlled by Murray Black, a director of Hot Chili, in connection with the settlement of the Interest Debt will be subject to a four-month hold period from the date of issuance of the applicable Ordinary Shares pursuant to the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.

A director of the Company was issued 4,575 Ordinary Shares as consideration for the settlement of $7,783.10 of Interest Debt, which is considered to be a "related party transaction" for purposes of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). In compliance with the terms of the Convertible Notes, the Company determined that it was not practical to announce the transaction 21 days before the expected settlement date. The Company is relying on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements available under MI 61-101. The Company is exempt from the formal valuation requirement in section 5.4 of MI 61-101 and the minority shareholder approval requirement in section 5.6 of MI 61-101 in reliance on section 5.5(a) and section 5.7(1)(a), respectively, of MI 61-101, as the fair market value of the transaction, insofar as it involves interested parties, is not more than the 25% of the Company's market capitalization.
