Vancouver, British Columbia, September 16, 2022 – Harrys International Manufacturing Inc., (a
wholly owned subsidiary of Harrys Manufacturing Inc. (“Harrys” or the “Company”) (CSE:HARY,
OTCQB:WSRRF) is pleased to announce that the production process has begun for the first order of
Harrys® Premium King Size cigarettes. Once completed, we expect to ship to the four Western Provinces,
British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba by the end of this month.
Management recognizes there have been significant delays in getting our product to market, mainly related
to the requirement to switch over to slide and shell packaging. The Company anticipates it’s first shipments
to arrive at our distribution partners in Western Canada the first week of October 2022 and available for
sale in various retail locations shortly thereafter.
Ken Storey, CEO stated; “Despite some ongoing challenges, we continue to make significant progress
toward entering the Canadian market with a viable, low-priced alternative for adult smokers. I’d like to
thank our manufacturing partners for their continued efforts to bring our brands to market, as well as our
shareholders and distribution partners who have supported us through these delays. We plan to have
Harrys® available in several regions in the country in the very near future.”
Securities for Debt Transactions
The Company has entered into debt settlement agreements with certain creditors (the “Creditors”) to
settle an aggregate of CAD$81,025 in debt (the “Debt”). In settlement of the Debt, the Company issued
an aggregate of 810,250 units of the Company (the “Units”) at a deemed price of $0.10 per Unit (the

“Share”) and one Share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof
to purchase one additional Share (a “Warrant Share”) at a price of $0.12 per Warrant Share for a period

Units to the non-arm’s length Creditors each constitute a “related party transaction” as defined in
Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Securityholders in Special Transactions (“MI
