The extension extends until 5:00 p.m. (Toronto Time) on August 12, 2016 the deadline for:

- beneficial holders of the Company's notes who validly signed and returned the support agreement or a joinder thereto ("Supporting Noteholders") to submit the Application for Early Consent to its participant holder or intermediary.
Supporting Noteholders are reminded that their signing of the support agreement or a joinder thereto does not constitute a vote in favour of the Plan and that, in order to receive any additional consideration they would otherwise be entitled to, such Supporting Noteholders must strictly comply with the procedures as set out in the Plan and various orders of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (Commercial List), including by voting in favour of the plan and returning the Application for Early Consent Consideration prior to the revised deadline of 5:00 p.m. (Toronto Time) on August 12, 2016.
