DIRTT Announces Amendments to its Substantial Issuer Bid

DIRTT Environmental Solutions Ltd. (“DIRTT” or the “Company”) (TSX: DRT; OTC: DRTTF), a leader in industrialized construction, announced today that it has effected certain amendments to the Company's offer to purchase and accompanying issuer bid circular (the "Offer and Circular") dated February 15, 2024, in connection with its previously announced substantial issuer bid and tender offer (the "Issuer Bid").

The amendments, the terms of which are set out in a notice of variation (the "Notice of Variation") and  Amendment No. 1 to the Company's Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO (the "Schedule TO-I/A"), each dated March 5, 2024, are solely to address comments from the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") in connection with its  review of DIRTT's Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO dated February 15, 2024 (the "Schedule TO").

Under the Issuer Bid, the Company has offered to repurchase for cancellation: (i) up to C$6,000,000 principal amount of its issued and outstanding 6.00% convertible unsecured subordinated debentures due January 31, 2026 (the “January Debentures”); and (ii) up to C$9,000,000 principal amount of its issued and outstanding 6.25% convertible unsecured subordinated debentures due December 31, 2026 (the “December Debentures,” and, together with the January Debentures, the “Debentures”) (or such larger principal amounts as the Company, in its sole discretion, may determine it is willing to take‑up and pay for, subject to applicable law).

The Issuer Bid remains otherwise subject to the terms and conditions set forth in DIRTT's Offer and Circular and Schedule TO, each initially dated February 15, 2024 and available on SEDAR+ at and EDGAR at, respectively, as amended by the Notice of Variation and the Schedule TO-I/A.  This Notice of Variation should be read in conjunction with the Issuer Bid Documents (as defined herein).

The Notice of Variation and Schedule TO-I/A are filed with the applicable securities regulators and available on SEDAR+ at and EDGAR at The Notice of Variation is expected to be mailed to holders of Debentures ("Debentureholders") in Canada and the U.S. on or around March 6, 2024. Debentureholders are urged to review these documents carefully as they contain important details with respect to the procedures that Debentureholders must follow in order to properly tender their Debentures.

The expiration date of the Issuer Bid is not being extended. The Issuer Bid will continue to expire at 5:00 p.m. (Toronto Time) on March 22, 2024, unless withdrawn or extended by the Company.

DIRTT has retained Computershare Investor Services Inc. ("Computershare") to act as depositary for the Issuer Bid. Any questions or requests for information may be directed to Computershare at 1 (800) 564-6253 (Toll Free within North America) or 1 (514) 982-7555 (outside North America).

None of DIRTT, its directors, Computershare, or any of their respective affiliates, makes any recommendation to any Debentureholder as to whether to deposit or refrain from depositing all or any portion of their Debentures under the offer. Debentureholders must make their own decisions as to whether to deposit or refrain from depositing their Debentures, and, if deposited, the amount of their Debentures to deposit. Debentureholders are strongly urged to review and evaluate carefully all information in the Offer and Circular, as amended by the Notice of Variation, and Schedule TO-I/A, as applicable, and in DIRTT’s other filings available on SEDAR+ and EDGAR and to consult their own financial, tax and legal advisors, and to make their own decisions as to whether to deposit Debentures to the offer and, if so, what principal amount of Debentures to deposit.

The solicitation and the offer to purchase Debentures by the Company will only be made pursuant to the Offer and Circular, Schedule TO, and letter of transmittal, as amended by the Notice of Variation and Schedule TO-I/A, as applicable, and other related documents (collectively, the "Issuer Bid Documents").
