conduct a detailed review of the Fund and International Aviation Terminals
Inc., a company wholly owned by the Fund, and their respective operations,
assets, corporate structure, capitalization, policies, management and
personnel to determine what changes, if any, would be desirable in light of
such review and the circumstances which then exist. Such changes may result in
a revision of the distribution policy of the Fund, the raising of additional
capital to pursue higher return growth opportunities for the Fund, and may
also include effecting changes in management, including the number and
identity of trustees of the Fund. The specific changes, if any, to be made in
respect of the Fund or International Aviation Terminals Inc. have not been,
and will not be, determined until FrontFour Capital completes its review of
such entities.

such actions in respect of their holdings of Units of the Fund as they deem
appropriate in light of circumstances then existing, including the acquisition
or disposition of Units. FrontFour Capital, DSSS and FrontFour Holdings may
from time to time acquire additional Units in the open market or in privately
negotiated transactions, subject to availability of Units at prices deemed
favourable, the Fund's business or financial condition and other factors and
conditions FrontFour Capital, DSSS and FrontFour Holdings deem appropriate. In
addition, FrontFour Capital, DSSS and FrontFour Holdings may formulate other
purposes, plans or proposals regarding the Units to the extent deemed
advisable in light of general investment and trading policies, market
conditions or other factors.
