1. Any shareholder entitled to attend and vote at the SGM is entitled to appoint another person as his/her/its proxy to attend and vote instead of his/her/it.

Completion and return of the form of Proxy will not preclude a Shareholder from attending the SGM and voting in person. In such event, his/her/its form of Proxy will be deemed to have been revoked.
2. Where there are joint holders of any Share, any one of such joint holders may vote at the SGM, either personally or by proxy, in respect of such Share as if he/she/it was solely entitled thereto, but if more than one of such joint holders be present at the SGM, that one of the said persons so present whose name stands first on the register of members of the Corporation in respect of such Share shall alone be entitled to vote in respect thereof.
3. In order to be valid, the instrument appointing a proxy together with the power of attorney or other authority, if any, under which it is signed, or a notarially certified copy of that power or authority must be deposited: (i) at the Corporation's principal share registrar in Canada, being Alliance Trust Company, at Suite 1010, 407 – 2nd Street SW, Calgary, Alberta, Canada T2P 2Y3; (ii) at the Corporation's branch share registrar in Hong Kong, being Computershare Hong Kong Investor Services Limited, at 17M Floor, Hopewell Centre, 183 Queen's Road East, Wanchai, Hong Kong during regular business hours at least 48 hours , excluding Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays in Calgary (i.e. 4:30 p.m. on July 16, 2015 (Calgary time) or 4:30 p.m. on July 16, 2015 (Hong Kong time), as the case may be) before the SGM, or any adjournment thereof, at which the proxy is to be used; or (iii) to the chairman of the SGM on the date of the SGM or any reconvening thereof, or in any other manner provided by law.
