An underwriting agreement for the Offering will be entered into by the Company, the Selling Shareholders and the Underwriters, at the time of filing of the final short form prospectus.

The Company and the Selling Shareholders expect to grant to the Underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 15 percent of the number of Offered Securities sold pursuant to the Offering to cover over-allotments, if any, and for market stabilization purposes.
