Class C Cumulative Dividends shall be payable as provided in clause 3.I.(a)(ii) hereof and shall accrue and be cumulative from the Issue Date.

 

McCarthy Tétrault TDO-CORP #6828586 / v.  1


  (ii) No Class C Cumulative Dividends shall be declared or paid prior to the third anniversary date of the Issue Date. Thereafter, on each subsequent anniversary date of the Issue Date, then

 

  (A) provided that the Corporation has not, prior to such third or subsequent anniversary date, received Net Proceeds equal to or greater than Cdn. $35,000,000, there shall be declared and paid in cash Class C Cumulative Dividends, if both before and, on a pro forma basis, after giving effect to the payment of such Class C Cumulative Dividends, the Consolidated Interest Coverage Ratio of the Corporation does not exceed 2.25 to 1; and

 

  (B) if the Corporation has received Net Proceeds equal to or greater than Cdn. $35,000,000 prior to such third or a subsequent anniversary date of the Issue Date, one-half of the Class C Cumulative Dividends as have accrued prior to such third or subsequent anniversary date immediately preceding receipt of such Net Proceeds shall be paid in cash on each of the first and second anniversary dates of the Issue Date after such third or subsequent anniversary date, unless the aggregate amount of such payments to be paid in cash on such date would exceed Cdn. $2,000,000 in either such year, in which case one-third of such accrued Class C Cumulative Dividends shall be declared and paid in cash on each of the first, second and third anniversary dates of the Issue Date after such third or subsequent anniversary date.

 

  (iii) If, on any anniversary date of the Issue Date after the third such anniversary date, the Class C Cumulative Dividends to be paid on such date are not paid in full in cash and such dividends were required to have been paid in full in cash pursuant to clause 3.I.(a)(ii), above, the rate at which Class C Cumulative Dividends shall accrue and be payable after such anniversary date as provided in clause 3.I.(a)(i) shall increase by 1% per annum, to a maximum dividend rate of 10% per annum, until such time as all Class C Cumulative Dividends have been paid in cash as provided herein, whereupon the dividend rate will revert to 7% per annum.

 

  (iv) If, on any date on which Class C Cumulative Dividends are to be paid, the dividend payable on such date is not paid in full on all the Class C Shares then issued and outstanding, such dividend, or the unpaid part thereof, shall be paid at a subsequent date or dates in priority to dividends on the Common Shares and any other shares ranking junior to the Class C Shares in respect of the payment of dividends.

 

McCarthy Tétrault TDO-CORP #6828586 / v.  1


  (v) Payment of dividends shall be made by cheque negotiable without charge at any branch of the Corporation’s bankers for the time being in Canada. The mailing of such cheques to holders of Class C Shares shall satisfy and discharge all liability of the Corporation for such dividends to the extent of the sums represented thereby (plus any tax required to be deducted or withheld therefrom) unless such cheques are not paid on due presentation. A dividend which is represented by a cheque which has not been presented for payment within 6 years after it was issued or that otherwise remains unclaimed for a period of 6 years from the date on which the cheque was mailed shall be forfeited to the Corporation.

 

  (vi) Subject to the terms hereof, the holders of Class C Shares shall not be entitled to any dividends or other distributions other than or in excess of the preferential cumulative cash dividends hereinbefore provided.

 

(b) Dividends Preferential: Except with the consent in writing of the holders of all the Class C Shares outstanding, no dividend or other distribution shall be declared and made or set apart for payment on the Common Shares or upon any other shares of the Corporation ranking junior to or on a parity with the Class C Shares as to dividends or upon liquidation, nor shall any Common Shares nor any other such shares of the Corporation ranking junior to or on a parity with the Class C Shares as to dividends or upon liquidation, be redeemed, purchased or otherwise acquired for any consideration (or any moneys be paid to or made available for a sinking fund of the redemption of any such shares) by the Corporation (except by conversion into or exchange for stock of the Corporation ranking junior to the Class C Shares as to dividends and as to liquidation) unless and until the accrued Class C Cumulative Dividends on all of the Class C Shares outstanding have been declared and paid.

 

(c) Participation upon Liquidation, Dissolution or Winding-Up: In the event of the liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of the Corporation or other distribution of assets of the Corporation among its shareholders for the purpose of winding-up its affairs, whether voluntary or involuntary, the holders of the Class C Shares shall be entitled to receive from the property and assets of the Corporation an amount equal to the aggregate Class C Redemption Amount (as hereinafter defined) of all Class C Shares held by them respectively before any distribution of any part of the property or assets of the Corporation to the holders of Common Shares or shares of any other class ranking junior to the Class C Shares in respect of such distribution. After payment to the holders of the Class C Shares of the Class C Redemption Amount, such holders shall not be entitled to share in any further distribution of the assets of the Corporation.

 

McCarthy Tétrault TDO-CORP #6828586 / v.  1


(d) Redemption by Corporation: The Corporation may at any time redeem the whole, or from time to time or times redeem any part of the then outstanding Class C Shares (any of the foregoing being an “Optional Redemption”) and, on the date that is eight and one-half years after the Issue Date, shall redeem the whole of the then outstanding Class C Shares (such redemption on the date that is eight and one-half years after the Issue Date being a “Mandatory Redemption”) on payment for each Class C Share to be redeemed of the Class C Issue Price, plus all unpaid Class C Cumulative Dividends which shall have accrued thereon and which shall be treated as accruing to, but not including, the date of such redemption, the whole constituting and being herein referred to as the “Class C Redemption Amount”. Provided that if the Corporation is not permitted, at the date set for the Mandatory Redemption, by virtue of applicable law, to redeem all of the Class C Shares then to be redeemed, it shall redeem, pro rata, such number of Class C Shares then called for redemption as it may then redeem. The Corporation may at any time undertake the Optional Redemption. If there is an Optional Redemption, and less than all the Class C Shares are to be redeemed, the Class C Shares to be redeemed in such Optional Redemption shall be a pro rata portion of the Class C Shares held by each holder on the date of such Optional Redemption.

 

(e) Notice of Redemption: In respect of the redemption of Class C Shares pursuant to the provisions of clause 3.I.(d) hereof, the Corporation shall, at least 21 days (or, if all of the holders of the Class C Shares consent, such shorter period to which they may consent) before the date specified for redemption, mail (or, with the consent of any particular holder, otherwise deliver) to each person who, at the date of mailing (or delivery, as the case may be) is a holder of Class C Shares to be redeemed a notice in writing of the intention of the Corporation to redeem such Class C Shares. Such notice shall (subject to the consent of any particular holder referred to above) be mailed by letter, postage prepaid, addressed to each such holder at his address as it appears on the records of the Corporation or, in the event of the address of any such holder not so appearing, then to the last known address of such holder; provided, however, that accidental failure to give any such notice to one or more of such holders shall not affect the validity of such redemption; but if such failure is discovered, notice as aforesaid shall be given forthwith to such holder or holders and shall have the same force and effect as if given in due time, provided that such notice shall not extend the date specified for such redemption. Such notice shall set out the number of Class C Shares held by the person to whom it is addressed which are to be redeemed; the aggregate Class C Redemption Amount to which such holder is entitled; the date on which redemption is to take place; and the place or places in Canada at which the holders of Class C Shares may present and surrender the certificates representing such shares for redemption.

 

(f)

Payment of Class C Redemption Amount: On the date so specified for redemption, the Corporation shall pay or cause to be paid to or to the order of the holders of the Class C Shares to be redeemed the Class C Redemption Amount thereof on presentation and surrender at the registered office of the Corporation or any other place designated in such notice of the certificates representing the Class C Shares called for redemption. Such payment shall be made by cheque payable at par at any branch of the

 

McCarthy Tétrault TDO-CORP #6828586 / v.  1


  Corporation’s bankers in Canada. From and after the date specified for redemption in any such notice the holders of the Class C Shares called for redemption shall cease to be entitled to dividends and shall not be entitled to exercise any of the rights of holders of Class C Shares in respect thereof unless payment of the Class C Redemption Amount is not made upon presentation of certificates in accordance with the foregoing provisions, in which case the rights of the holders of the said Class C Shares shall remain unaffected. The Corporation shall have the right at any time after the mailing (or delivery, as the case may be) of notice of its intention to redeem any Class C Shares to deposit the Class C Redemption Amount of the shares so called for redemption to a special account in any chartered bank or in any trust company in Canada, named in such notice, to be paid without interest to or to the order of the respective holders of such Class C Shares called for redemption upon presentation and surrender to such bank or trust company of the certificates representing the same, and upon such deposit being made, the rights of the holders thereof after such deposit or such redemption date, whichever is the earlier, shall be limited to receiving without interest their proportionate part of the total Class C Redemption Amount so deposited against presentation and surrender of the said certificates held by them respectively, and any interest allowed on such deposit shall belong to the Corporation.

 

(g) Voting Rights: Except as otherwise provided by law, the holders of the Class C Shares shall not, as such, be entitled to receive notice of or to attend any meeting of shareholders of the Corporation and shall not be entitled to vote at any such meeting. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the holders of the Class C Shares shall not be entitled to vote separately as a class on any proposal to amend the Articles of the Corporation to:

 

  (i) increase or decrease any maximum number of authorized Class C Shares, or increase any maximum number of authorized shares of a class having rights or privileges equal or superior to the Class C Shares; or

 

  (ii) effect an exchange, reclassification or cancellation of all or part of the Class C Shares; or

 

  (iii) create a new class of shares equal or superior to the Class C Shares.

 

(h)

Series: The Class C Shares are issuable in two series, with an unlimited number of Class C Shares, Series 1, constituting the first series and an unlimited number of Class C Shares, Series 2, constituting the second series. Class C Shares, Series 2 shall only be issued as a result of the conversion of Class C Shares, Series 1 into Class C Shares, Series 2. Immediately prior to any such conversion, the directors shall by resolution fix (i) the number of Class C Shares, Series 2 to be issued as such number as shall equal the number of Class C Shares, Series 1 which are to be converted into Class C Shares, Series 2; and (ii) the number of votes which each Class C Share, Series 2 shall

 

McCarthy Tétrault TDO-CORP #6828586 / v.  1


  have attached to it, which number shall be such number as the directors shall by resolution, in their discretion, determine, to a maximum number of votes for all of the Class C Shares, Series 2 to be issued upon the conversion of the Class C Shares, Series 1, which shall not exceed, in the aggregate, 35% of the votes attached to all voting shares of the Corporation which will be outstanding immediately following such conversion.

II. Class C Shares, Series 1

In addition to the rights, privileges, restrictions and conditions attaching to the Class C Shares as a class, the Class C Shares, Series 1 shall have the following rights, privileges, restrictions and conditions:

 

(a) Mandatory Conversion:

 

  (i) Mandatory Conversion: All, but not less than all, of the Class Shares, Series 1 of the Corporation may, on such date as may be determined by the directors of the Corporation by resolution in their sole discretion, be converted into the same number of Class C Shares, Series 2 as are outstanding on the date set for conversion on the basis of one Class C Share, Series 2 for each Class C Share, Series 1.

 

  (ii) Directors to Fix Number, Votes: Prior to giving the notice of conversion provided for in clause 3.II.(a)(iii), the directors shall by resolution have fixed (i) the number of Class C Shares, Series 2 to be issued as set forth in clause 3.I.(h); and (ii) the number of votes which each Class C Share, Series 2 shall have attached to it, as set forth in clause 3.I.(h).

 

  (iii) Notice of Conversion: In respect of the conversion of Class C Shares, Series 1 pursuant to the provisions of clause 3.II.(a)(i) hereof, the Corporation shall at least 21 days before the date specified for conversion mail or deliver to each person who at the date of mailing (or delivery, as the case may be) is a holder of Class C Shares, Series 1 to be converted a notice in writing of the intention of the Corporation to convert such Class C Shares, Series 1 into Class C Shares, Series 2. Such conversion shall take place on such date as is specified in the said notice, which date shall not be less than 21 days following the date of said notice. Effective on such date, the holder of the Class C Shares, Series 1 being converted shall be deemed to have become, and shall be registered as, the holder of the Class C Shares, Series 2 resulting from the conversion and shall cease to be registered as a holder of the Class C Shares, Series 1 converted. The Corporation shall specify in such notice the date on which the conversion is to occur, the number of Class C Shares, Series 1 held by the person to whom it is addressed to be converted, the number of Class C Shares,

 

McCarthy Tétrault TDO-CORP #6828586 / v.  1


  Series 2 to be issued upon such conversion, the date upon which the conversion will occur and that the holder of Class C Shares, Series 1 shall have become the registered holder of the Class C Shares, Series 2 resulting from the conversion on such date. Such notice shall be mailed by letter, postage prepaid, addressed to each such holder at his address as it appears on the records of the Corporation or in the event of the address of any such holder not so appearing then to the last known address of such holder; provided, however, that accidental failure to give any such notice to one or more of such holders shall not affect the validity of such conversion; but if such failure is discovered, notice as aforesaid shall be given forthwith to such holder or holders and shall have the same force and effect as if given in due time, provided that such notice shall not extend the date specified for such conversion.

III. Class C Shares, Series 2
