Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.


On December 13, 2018, CLS Holdings USA, Inc. ("CLS" or the "Company") issued a press release announcing that it had closed the first tranche of the offering of convertible debentures and issued approximately $12 million in aggregate principal amount of convertible debentures. The press release was issued in compliance with Rule 135c of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”). A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference.


In accordance with General Instruction B.2 of Form 8-K, the information in this report, including the exhibit attached hereto, shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), nor shall such information be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.


Caution With Respect To Forward-looking Statements: 


The information in the press release contains forward-looking statements as that term is defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements relate to anticipated future events, future results of operations or future financial performance. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements relating to its ongoing convertible debenture financing and whether and when certain transactions will be completed, the Company’s use of proceeds and its growth strategy in Nevada and Massachusetts, and anticipated license approvals. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as "may," "might," "will," "should," "intends," "expects," "plans," "goals," "projects," "anticipates," "believes," "estimates," "predicts," "potential," or "continue" or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology. These forward-looking statements are only predictions, are uncertain and involve substantial known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause our actual results, levels of activity or performance to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity or performance expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. We cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity or performance and we cannot guaranty that the proposed transactions described in this press release will occur. You should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date that they were made. These cautionary statements should be considered together with any written or oral forward-looking statements that we may issue in the future. Except as required by applicable law, we do not intend to update any of the forward-looking statements to conform these statements to reflect actual results, later events or circumstances or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events. See CLS Holdings USA filing with the SEC for additional details.
