may elect to have their dividends reinvested in additional common shares of
the bank, in accordance with the bank's dividend reinvestment plan (the
"plan").
    Under the plan, the bank determines whether the additional common shares
are purchased on the secondary market or issued by the bank from treasury. At
this time, the bank has decided to issue shares from treasury at a 3 per cent
discount from the average market price (as defined in the plan).
