Hampton Financial Corporation ("Hampton" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:HFC) is pleased to announce that further to its press release dated June 28, 2017, it has closed the second and final tranche of its previously announced offering (the "Offering"). The second tranche of the Offering represents aggregate gross proceeds of CDN$427,000. M Partners Inc. (the "Agent") acted as agent in connection with the Offering, for which a final long form prospectus ("Prospectus") was filed on May 30, 2017, and the Corporation obtained a receipt on May 31, 2017, for the jurisdictions of Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta and Nova Scotia.

At the closing of the second tranche of the Offering (the "Closing"), the Corporation issued 42,700 Units at a price of CDN$10.00 per Unit, with each Unit consisting of one class A preferred share in the capital of the Corporation (each, a "Preferred Share") and one subordinate voting share purchase warrant (each, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder, upon the exercise thereof, to purchase one subordinate voting share in the capital of the Corporation (each, a "Warrant Share") at the price of CDN$1.00 per Warrant Share for a period of 60 months following the date of the Closing. In total, combined with the first tranche of the Offering that closed on June 28, 2017, the Corporation raised gross proceeds of $2,436,950 through the issuance of an aggregate of 243,695 Units.

The Preferred Shares will commence trading on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") under the symbol "HFC.PR.A" at the opening of trading on July 6, 2017.

In consideration for services rendered by the Agent in connection with the Offering, the Agent will be paid a commission equal to 5% of the aggregate gross proceeds of the Offering. The Corporation has also granted the Agent an option to offer for sale additional Units to cover over-allotments, if any, and for market stabilization purposes (the "Over-Allotment Option"), which will allow the Agent to arrange for purchasers to acquire up to an additional 15% of the number of Units initially sold under the Offering. The Over-Allotment Option is exercisable by the Agent, in whole or in part, for a period of 30 days following the final closing of the Offering.

A copy of the Prospectus, which contains important information relating to the Offering and the Units, is available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com, under Hampton's profile.
