No fractional Common Shares will be issued upon the Consolidation and all fractions of post-consolidation Common Shares will be rounded down.

Letters of transmittal will be mailed to the registered holders of the Common Shares, requesting that they surrender their certificates representing the currently outstanding Common Shares to the Company's registrar and transfer agent, Computershare Investor Services Inc., for exchange for new common share certificates representing post-consolidation Common Shares.

Non-registered shareholders of the Company holding their Common Shares through a bank, broker or other nominee should note that such banks, brokers or other nominees may have different procedures for processing the proposed Consolidation than those that will be put in place by the Company for registered shareholders.

Further details of the Consolidation are contained in the Management Information Circular dated November 1, 2017 sent to the Company's shareholders in connection with the Meeting and filed under the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
