The Whitebox LPs are managed by Whitebox Advisors, LLC, such that, for purposes of applicable Canadian securities laws, Andrew Redleaf and Whitebox Advisors, LLC (together, the "Whitebox Filers") may be considered to have control or direction over the Common Shares sold by the Whitebox LPs.

For purposes of Canadian securities laws, each of the Whitebox LPs may be presumed to be acting jointly or in concert with Mr. Redleaf, Whitebox Advisors LLC and the other Whitebox LPs.
The Common Shares were sold in the ordinary course of business of the Whitebox LPs. The Whitebox Filers expect to evaluate on an ongoing basis the Issuer's financial condition, business, operations and prospects, the market price of the securities of the Issuer, conditions in the securities markets generally, general economic conditions and industry conditions and other factors. Depending on such review, the Whitebox Filers may make purchases or may sell or transfer Common Shares or other securities of the Issuer over which they may be considered to have control or direction from time to time in public or private transactions and/or may enter into privately negotiated derivative transactions with institutional counterparties to hedge the market risk of some or all of their positions in the Common Shares or other securities. In addition, the Whitebox Filers may cause any of the Whitebox LPs to distribute in kind to their respective partners or shareholders, as the case may be, Common Shares or other securities. Any such transactions may be effected at any time or from time to time subject to applicable law. Other than as described above, none of the Whitebox Filers has any plan or proposal relating to or that would result in: (a) an extraordinary corporate transaction, such as a merger, reorganization or liquidation, involving the Issuer or any of its subsidiaries; (b) a sale or transfer of a material amount of assets of the Issuer or any of its subsidiaries; (c) any material change in the present capitalization or dividend policy of the Issuer; (d) any other material change in the Issuer's business or corporate structure; (e) any changes in the Issuer's charter, by-laws or instruments corresponding thereto or other actions which may impede the acquisition of control of the Issuer by any person; (f) a class of securities of the Issuer being delisted; (g) a class of equity securities of the Issuer becoming eligible for termination of registration; or (h) any action similar to those enumerated above.
