The Company plans to fund repurchases of Shares through available cash on hand. Unless otherwise stated, the Offer is denominated in Canadian dollars, and shareholders will have the option to elect to receive payment in either Canadian or United States dollars.
For more information about the Offer, please see the Company's June 20, 2022 press release. The terms and conditions of the Offer, including instructions for tendering Shares, have been included in the formal offer to purchase and issuer bid circular, letter of transmittal and notice of guaranteed delivery (which are available without charge on SEDAR at www.sedar.com), as amended by a notice of variation dated as of the date hereof (the "Notice of Variation"), which will be filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com as soon as practicable.
The Company will be mailing the Notice of Variation to all shareholders to whom the Offer materials were required to be sent as soon as practicable. Any questions or requests for assistance in tendering Shares to the Offer may be directed to Computershare Investor Services Inc., the depositary for the Offer.
