Re: Registration Statement on Form S-3


Ladies and Gentlemen:


We have acted as counsel to NextPlat Corp, a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), in connection with the Registration Statement on Form S-3 (the “Registration Statement”), filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The Registration Statement relates to the registration for resale by the selling stockholders named in the Registration Statement (the “Selling Stockholders”) of up to 9,699,909 shares (the “Shares”) of Company’s common stock, $0.0001 par value per share (“Common Stock”) issued by the Company to the Selling Stockholders.


In connection with our opinion, we have examined the Registration Statement, including the exhibits thereto, and such other documents, corporate records and instruments, and have examined such laws and regulations, as we have deemed necessary for the purposes of this opinion. In making our examination, we have assumed the genuineness of all signatures, the authenticity of all documents submitted to us as originals, the conformity with the originals of all documents submitted to us as copies and the legal capacity of all natural persons. As to matters of fact material to our opinions in this letter, we have relied on certificates and statements from officers and other employees of the Company, public officials and other appropriate persons.


Based on the foregoing and subject to the qualifications set forth below, we are of the opinion that:


1.The Shares have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate action of the Company, and are validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable.


The foregoing opinion is limited to Chapter 78 of the Nevada Revised Statutes, and we express no opinion as to the laws of any other jurisdiction.
