San Diego, California--(Newsfile Corp. - March 8, 2024) - Hempacco Co., Inc. (NASDAQ: HPCO) ("Hempacco" or the "Company"), a vertically integrated hemp manufacturing company, today announced that its Board of Directors on February 20, 2024, approved a 1-for-10 reverse stock split of the Company's issued and outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share, accompanied by a corresponding decrease in the Company's authorized shares of common stock (the "Reverse Stock Split"), such that, following the consummation of the Reverse Stock Split, the number of authorized shares of common stock will be reduced from 200,000,000 to 20,000,000. The reverse stock split is anticipated to be effective as of the open of the market on March 13, 2024.

As a result of the Reverse Stock Split, every 10 pre-split shares of Company common stock outstanding will automatically combine into one new share of common stock without any action on the part of the holders, and the number of outstanding common shares will be reduced from approximately 31.4 million shares to approximately 3.14 million shares. Any fractional shares resulting from the Reverse Stock Split will be rounded up to the nearest whole share on a per shareholder basis. The Reverse Stock Split will not affect the par value of the Company's common stock.

The Board of Directors approved the Reverse Stock Split pursuant to Section 78.207 of the Nevada Revised Statutes ("NRS"). The Board of Directors approved the Reverse Stock Split unilaterally pursuant to Section 78.207 of the NRS, solely to enable the Company to expeditiously meet the $1.00 minimum bid price requirement of The Nasdaq Stock Market ("Nasdaq") and to reduce the risk of the Company being delisted as a result of failure to meet those requirements. The Reverse Stock Split will have no effect on the Company's authorized preferred stock. The Company anticipates that the effective time of the Reverse Stock Split will be before market open on March 13, 2024, with the common stock trading on a post-split basis under the Company's existing trading symbol, "HPCO," at the market open on March 13, 2024, with a new CUSIP number, 42371L205. The Reverse Stock Split will increase the market price per share of the Company's common stock, and is intended to bring the Company into compliance with the $1.00 minimum bid listing requirements of Nasdaq.

Transfer Online, the Company's transfer agent, will act as the exchange agent for the Reverse Stock Split.
