The dividend will be an 'eligible dividend' for Canadian income tax purposes. The ex-dividend date is August 20, 2014.

Shareholders who wish to enroll for the first time in the Premium Dividend™ or enhanced Dividend Reinvestment Plan must do so prior to the August 20, 2014 ex-dividend date if they wish to participate in the Plan for this month's dividend.

Premium Dividend™ and enhanced Dividend Reinvestment Plan

In addition to the option of receiving a monthly cash dividend of $0.0883 per share, the Premium Dividend™ and enhanced Dividend Reinvestment Plan provide Canadian shareholders with the following options:

--  The Premium Dividend™ - this provides eligible shareholders with a 2%
    cash premium in addition to their regular cash dividend. Participants in
    this option will receive $0.0901 per share on the dividend payment date.

--  Dividend Reinvestment - this allows shareholders to repurchase shares
    with their dividend at a 5% discount to the volume weighted average
    price as defined by the Plan.
