Mr. Andy DeFrancesco reports

SOL GLOBAL FOUNDED PORTFOLIO COMPANY HEAVENLYRX ANNOUNCES THE APPOINTMENT OF JUDGE JEANINE PIRRO, TOP RATED WEEKEND NEWS HOST AND NY TIMES BEST-SELLING AUTHOR, TO ITS BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Television personality and legal expert Judge Jeanine Pirro has been appointed to the board of directors of SOL Global Investments Corp.'s portfolio company, Heavenly Rx Ltd., a global hemp and cannabidiol company, effective immediately.

Judge Pirro is the host of Fox News Channel's top-rated Justice with Judge Jeanine and a frequent guest on other prime-time shows. Before becoming a television personality more than a decade ago, Judge Pirro had a distinguished legal career, scoring two firsts for women. In 1991, she was the first woman to be elected to county court judge. Two years later, she became the first woman to be elected Westchester county district attorney.

As a media personality and former public official versed in a wide variety of legal and political issues, Judge Pirro brings decades of insight and perspective to bear on the emerging CBD and hemp marketplaces. Judge Pirro is also the author of six books, including one New York Times best seller. She is a graduate of the State University of New York at Buffalo and Albany Law School of Union University where she was an editor of the law review.

CBD is growing in the health and wellness sector, particularly among women who are the leading demographic for CBD products, making up 58 per cent of all users of CBD according to the Brightfield Group. Judge Pirro will be invaluable with her insights into CBD and it's potential markets.

Andy DeFrancesco, chairman of SOL Global, commented on the appointment, saying: "Getting to know the judge over the last year has made me understand just how real her passion is for the projects she supports. Everything about Jeanine is authentic and knowing that you could not find a better champion for Heavenly Rx gives me great confidence in her appointment to the company's board."
