As a reminder, any registered shareholder who wishes to convert his or her Series 2 and/or Series 3 Preferred Shares must complete and sign the conversion panel contained on the back of the Series 2 or Series 3 Preferred Share certificate, as the case may be, and deliver it to Computershare Investor Services Inc., and any registered shareholder who wishes to revoke or amend his or her previously delivered conversion instructions must notify Computershare Investor Services Inc., in each case at the latest by 5:00 p.m. (Montréal time) on July 18, 2022.
