The Company has provided the holders of the Debentures with 30 days advance written notice of the Conversion, and the effective date for the Conversion will be December 27, 2017.

Pursuant to the Conversion, holders of Debentures will receive 625 Common Shares for each $1,000 principal amount of Debentures held. In addition, the accrued and unpaid interest on the Debentures for the period from issuance on July 18, 2017 to but excluding the conversion date will be equal to $36.00 and Debenture holders will receive an additional 22 Common Shares for each $1,000 principal amount of Debentures held on account of accrued and unpaid interest, for a total of 647 Common Shares for each $1,000 principal amount of Debentures held.

Debenture holders continue to have the right to convert any part of the principal amount of their Debentures in accordance with the procedures set out in the Indenture and the certificates representing the Debentures at any time prior to the effective date for the Conversion. In the event that Debentureholders convert their Debentures prior to such date, they will receive accrued and unpaid interest thereon in cash.
