*TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / April 15, 2020 / *Conscience Capital Inc. ("*Conscience*") (TSXV:DGTL.P), a capital pool company, and Hashoff LLC ("*Hashoff*"), a privately held company, announce receipt of a final valuation report of the outstanding units of Hashoff (the "*Evans Valuation Report*"). Conscience requested the Evans Valuation Report in connection with the filing statement dated March 30, 2020 (the "*Filing Statement*") that was filed with the TSX Venture Exchange (the "*Exchange*") for the proposed business combination (the "*Transaction*") between Conscience and Hashoff. Conscience provided the Evans Valuation Report to the Exchange to substantiate the use of a Form 5D - Tier 2 Value Securities Escrow Agreement (a "*Value Escrow Agreement*") between Joel Wright, who will act as a strategic advisor of post-Transaction Conscience (the "*Resulting Issuer*") and an arm's length escrow agent.

*Engagement of Evans & Evans, Inc. by Conscience*

Pursuant to an engagement letter dated March 19, 2020 (the "*Engagement Letter*"), the services of Evans & Evans, Inc. ("*Evans*") were retained by Conscience in connection with the provision of the Evans Valuation Report. Evans' services included providing advice and assistance to Conscience in connection with the preparation and delivery to Conscience of the Evans Valuation Report on Hashoff, to establish the fair market value of Hashoff.

*Independence of Evans*

Evans is an independent arm's-length consultant who does not have a financial interest (nor does it expect to have any future interest), directly or indirectly, in Conscience or Hashoff (or their respective subsidiaries or associated companies), nor does it expect any consideration other than the fee and expenses from Conscience for the preparation of the Evans Valuation Report, nor is its fee contingent upon the completion of the Transaction.

*Summary of Evans Valuation Report*

Based upon and subject to the limitations in the Evans Valuation Report, and such other matters as Evans has considered relevant, it is their opinion that, as of February 29, 2020 (the "*Valuation Date*"), the fair market value of Hashoff is in the range of CAD $6,600,000 to $7,100,000.

With respect to the fair market value of Hashoff, Evans believed it was appropriate to value Hashoff on a going concern basis. The reason for this was that Hashoff is generating revenue, is forecasting positive earnings in the short-term and the going concern approach yields a higher value than a liquidation approach. Given the status of Hashoff at the valuation date it was the view of Evans that that the most appropriate approaches in determining the range of the fair market value of Hashoff at the Valuation Date was a weighting of the following approaches:

1. Guideline Public Company ("*GPC*") Method. The GPC Method involves identifying stocks that trade freely in the public markets on a daily basis. The objective of the GPC Method is to derive multiples to apply to the fundamental financial variables of the subject investment under review.
2. Modified Discounted Cash Flow ("*DCF*") Method. A traditional DFC analysis was combined with probability weighted scenarios. This method takes into consideration that Hashoff may have: uncertainty with respect to the timing and amount of revenue; uncertainty with respect to the ability to maintain gross margins through the growth phase; and net margins that may fluctuate as operations grow.

Conscience was comfortable that Evans has conducted a thorough review of available valuation methodology and had exercised its professional expertise in applying these valuation methods. The Valuation Report has been filed on SEDAR, and is available at www.sedar.com under Conscience's profile.
