The Subordinate Voting Shares indirectly sold by the Founders were issued immediately prior to the Secondary Offering upon conversion of an equivalent number of multiple voting shares of the Company (the "Multiple Voting Shares"). 931,600 Multiple Voting Shares beneficially owned by Ronnen Harary were converted into 931,600 Subordinate Voting Shares (of which 279,500 were donated to a not-for-profit charitable corporation controlled by Ronnen Harary), 931,600 Multiple Voting Shares beneficially owned by Anton Rabie were converted into 931,600 Subordinate Voting Shares and 931,600 Multiple Voting Shares beneficially owned by Ben Varadi were converted into 931,600 Subordinate Voting Shares and sold pursuant to the Secondary Offering.  Prior to the Secondary Offering, each of the Founders directly owned 14,102 Subordinate Voting Shares and upon completion of the Secondary Offering each of the Founders continued to own 14,102 Subordinate Voting Shares.

The purposes of the Secondary Offering included increasing the available float of free-trading shares, in order to enhance the trading liquidity of the Company's shares and satisfying institutional demand for the Company's equity.

Pursuant to the terms of an agreement among the Founders, entities controlled by the Founders, and the Company (the "Principal Shareholders Agreement"), the Founders may be joint actors of one another.  Collectively, pursuant to the Principal Shareholders Agreement, the Founders jointly control 100% of the issued and outstanding Multiple Voting Shares and upon completion of the Secondary Offering continued to jointly control 100% of the issued and outstanding Multiple Voting Shares.

Pursuant to the terms of the Multiple Voting Shares, they are each convertible into Subordinate Voting Shares, on a one-for-one basis, and will convert automatically upon the occurrence of certain events and may be converted at any time at the option of the holder.  Upon completion of the Secondary Offering, the Subordinate Voting Shares and Multiple Voting Shares now beneficially owned by Ronnen Harary, Anton Rabie and Ben Varadi represent approximately 29.8%, 30.0% and 9.8%, respectively, of the issued and outstanding Subordinate Voting Shares, on a partially-diluted basis, assuming that the Multiple Voting Shares owned beneficially by the Founders were converted into Subordinate Voting Shares in accordance with their terms. Collectively, pursuant to the Principal Shareholders Agreement, the Founders control approximately 69.6% of the issued and outstanding Subordinate Voting Shares, on a partially-diluted basis, assuming that the Multiple Voting Shares owned beneficially by the Founders were converted into Subordinate Voting Shares in accordance with their terms.
