DIVIDEND WITHHOLDING TAX INFORMATION

Notice to all Registered Non-Canadian Resident Shareholders

Dividend payments made to non-Canadian resident shareholders will be subject to withholding tax at a statutory withholding tax rate of 25%. This withholding tax rate may be reduced for individuals resident in countries which have a tax treaty with Canada, in accordance with the relevant tax treaty.

The Canada Revenue Agency (the “CRA”) requires a certification of residency from each shareholder so that the relevant tax treaty rate can be applied where applicable to individuals resident in countries which have a tax treaty with Canada.

Computershare Investor Services Inc. mailed form NR301 to all Registered non-Canadian resident shareholders. In order to receive the applicable treaty rate, you must complete and mail back the form to Computershare. Failure to supply a completed NR301 form will result in Computershare withholding the statutory 25% withholding tax rate on any payments to Registered non-Canadian resident shareholders. Instructions on how to correctly complete the NR301 are on the back of the form.

Notice to all Beneficial Non-Canadian Resident Shareholders

Shareholders who hold their shares through a broker should contact their broker directly. Such shareholders do not need to return a form to Computershare.

For Swedish tax purposes, a reclaim may be filed by submitting the form SKV 3740, and supplemental attachments, to the Swedish Tax Agency.
