The Company may, from time to time, in its discretion, change or eliminate the discount applicable to treasury acquisitions or direct that such common shares be purchased in market acquisitions at the prevailing market price, any of which would be publicly announced. Participation in the DRIP is optional. The DRIP and enrollment forms are available on the Company's website at Canadian and U.S. registered shareholders may also enroll in the DRIP online through the plan agent's self-service web portal at Canadian and U.S. beneficial shareholders should contact their financial intermediary to arrange enrollment.
