Greenbrook TMS Inc. (TSX: GTMS) (“ Greenbrook ” or the “ Company ”) announces today that, in support of its previously-announced application to list its common shares (the “ CommonShares ”) on The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“ NASDAQ ”), and to assist the Company in meeting the NASDAQ’s initial listing requirements, the Company will hold a special meeting of shareholders (the “ Special Meeting ”) on January 12, 2021 to, among other things, consider, and if deemed appropriate, to approve, a special resolution to authorize amendments of the Company’s articles to consolidate its issued and outstanding Common Shares (the “ Consolidation ”).
