The actual number of Class A Subordinate Voting Shares that may be purchased and the timing of any such purchases will be determined by Dream, subject to a maximum daily purchase limitation of 13,242 shares which equals 25% of the average daily trading volume during the last six calendar months (being 52,968 shares per day), except where purchases are made in accordance with "block purchase" exemptions under applicable TSX rules.
