Dividend Reinvestment Plan

All shareholders considering enrollment in the DRIP should carefully review the terms of the DRIP and consult with their advisors as to the implications of enrollment in the DRIP.

Participation in the DRIP is optional. Participants in the DRIP may obtain additional Common Shares of the Company by automatically reinvesting all or any portion of the cash dividends paid on Common Shares held by the Plan participant without paying any brokerage commissions, administrative costs or other service charges. In respect of Treasury Acquisitions under the Plan, the Company can issue the common shares at a discount of up to 5% of the Average Market Price, as defined in the DRIP. 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. For more information, shareholders interested in enrolling in the DRIP should refer to the materials noted below, or contact the Plan Agent, CST Trust Company, at the link noted below.

Beneficial shareholders should contact their nominee to enroll in the DRIP.
