("Grounded" or the "Company") (CSE:SHOE)(OTC PINK:GPAIF)(FRA:K1G) (WKN: A3DVB1), is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") of up to 3,333,333 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.60 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $2,000,000. Each Unit will consist of one (1) common share (each, a "Share") and one (1) transferable Share purchase warrant (each, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one (1) additional Share of the Company for a period of five (5) years from issuance, at a price of $0.75 per Share. The closing date of the Private Placement is expected to occur on or around August 23, 2024.

MI 61-101 Disclosure

Amalfi is a private company controlled by Geoff Balderson, CFO, corporate secretary and a director of the Company, and an issuance of Admin Fee Shares to Amalfi is considered to be a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The Company is relying on the exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as the fair market value of the issuance of the Admin Fee Shares issued to Amalfi will not exceed twenty-five percent (25%) of the market capitalization of the Company, as determined in accordance with MI 61-101.

Pursuant to applicable securities laws, all securities to be issued under the Private Placement will be subject to restrictions on resale for a period of four-months-and-one-day from issuance. The Private Placement remains subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, receipt of all necessary approvals including the approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange.
