Information for Holders of Common Shares

The Company has mailed a letter of transmittal ("Letter of Transmittal") to its registered holders of common shares which must be completed and returned to Computershare Investor Services Inc. ("Computershare") at the address specified in the Letter of Transmittal, together with share certificates for the pre-consolidation common shares, in order to receive share certificates for the relevant number of post-consolidation common shares to which shareholders are entitled.
