In addition, the Company has granted the Underwriters an option to purchase up to an additional 1,167,750 Common Shares at the same price and on the same terms as the Offering, exercisable in whole or in part at any time up until the date which is 30 days following the closing of the Offering, to cover over-allotments (the "Over-Allotment Option"). Total gross aggregate proceeds will be approximately $115 million if the Over-Allotment Option is exercised in full.

Until deployed for these purposes, the proceeds of the Offering will temporarily be used to reduce the outstanding indebtedness under the Company's bank facility.
The Offering will be completed by way of a short form prospectus in all provinces of Canada, and on a private placement basis in the United States pursuant to exemptions from registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
