The Debentures will be convertible at the holder’s option at any time prior to the close of business on the earlier of the Maturity Date and the business day immediately preceding the date specified by the Corporation for redemption of the Debentures into common shares of the Corporation (“Common Shares”) at a conversion price of $60.00 per Common Share, being a conversion rate of 16.6667 Common Shares for each $1,000 principal amount of Debentures, subject to adjustment as provided in the indenture governing the Debentures.

The Corporation intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to repay indebtedness, including the Corporation’s existing series of convertible debentures maturing December 31, 2022, which become redeemable as of December 31, 2021, and for general corporate purposes.

Closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or about December 6, 2021.
