Neptune Wellness Solutions Inc. ("Neptune" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:NEPT) (TSX:NEPT), a health and wellness company focused on extraction, purification and formulation of cannabinoids, has entered into an amended and restated processing agreement with Canopy Growth Corporation ("Canopy").

Canopy and Neptune mutually decided to review the terms of their processing agreement. The parties have agreed to an amended schedule of processing volumes committed to Neptune by Canopy. In addition, the parties agreed to remove certain preferential rights previously granted to Canopy with respect to Neptune's capacity and pricing. Effective June 30, 2020, volume and pricing will be negotiated between the two parties based on market conditions. The 3-year term of the agreement remains unchanged and expires on June 30, 2022.

Canopy continues to be an important customer for Neptune and both parties are looking forward to maintaining and capturing more business opportunities as the market evolves. As a result of the revised terms, Neptune expects to reduce its client concentration risk and diversify its customer base.
