Form of Distribution:                  The distribution of the Notes is being made on a private placement basis to purchasers in each of the provinces of Canada (the “Offering Jurisdictions”) under a Canadian offering memorandum dated October 3, 2017 (the “Canadian Offering Memorandum”), which will include the Prospectus (as defined below), as supplemented by a Prospectus Supplement dated October 3, 2017, that form part of the registration statement filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. The distribution will be made in reliance on statutory exemptions from the prospectus requirements of Canadian securities laws applicable in each of the Offering Jurisdictions and, in particular, the Notes will only be sold in the Offering Jurisdictions, pursuant to the “accredited investor exemption” (as defined in National Instrument 45-106 — Prospectus Exemptions (“NI 45-106”)) and therefore only to purchasers that are “accredited investors” (as such term is defined in NI 45-106) or Section 73.3 of the Securities Act (Ontario), as applicable) who purchase the Notes as principal (or are deemed to be purchasing as principal) that are not individuals unless those individuals are also “permitted clients” (as such term is defined in National Instrument 31-103 — Registration Requirements, Exemptions and Ongoing Registrant Obligations).
Resale Restrictions:      Resale of the Notes must be made in accordance with an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the prospectus requirements of applicable Canadian securities laws, which may vary depending on the province. The Company is not a reporting issuer in any province or territory of Canada. Unless permitted under applicable Canadian securities laws, holders of the Notes must not trade the Notes before the date that is the later of four months and a day after (i) October 6, 2017 and (ii) the date the Issuer becomes a reporting issuer in Canada. Prospective purchasers should consult their own independent legal advisors with respect to such restrictions. The Notes are a new issue of securities for which no established trading market exists. If an active trading market does not develop for the Notes, investors may not be able to resell them.
