Under the OPRCNA program, the Company is authorized to buy back up to 2,519,889 of its ordinary shares, which represents 10% of the free float as of March 15, 2022. As of March 15, 2022, the Company had 39,625,596 ordinary shares issued and in circulation. and a public float of 25,198,894 ordinary shares. Purchases will be made through normal course purchases made through the facilities of the TSX and/or other Canadian trading systems, or through any other means authorized by the Securities Commission of Ontario or the Canadian Securities Administrators. Under the terms of the issuer bid, the Company may acquire, from time to time, up to 10,421 common shares per day (equivalent to 25% of 41,685 common shares, being the average daily trading volume on common shares of the Company for the period ended February 28, 2022), subject to certain exceptions, including bulk purchase exceptions. All shares purchased by the Company under the public buyback offer will be cancelled. Purchases may begin on March 25, 2022 and will end on the date the Company has purchased the maximum number of common shares under the issuer bid and March 24, 2023, whichever is earlier.

In the Company’s view, having the option to repurchase common shares on an opportunistic basis could be an efficient use of its cash resources and could be in the best interest of the Company and its shareholders. This would both improve liquidity for shareholders seeking to sell and increase proportional interest for shareholders wishing to maintain their positions.
Purchases will be made by the Company in accordance with the requirements of the TSX and the price the Company will pay for such common shares will be the market price of such common shares at the time of acquisition, or such other price as may be authorized by the TSX.
