Mr. Price expects that he will, from time to time, review his investment position in the Company and may, depending on market and other conditions, increase or decrease his investment position in the Common Shares or other securities of the Company.
Whether Mr. Price acquires any additional Common Shares or other securities of the Company or disposes of any Common Shares or other securities of the Company, in addition to the number and timing of any such transactions, will depend upon his continuing assessments of pertinent factors, including, but not limited to, the availability of Common Shares or other securities of the Company for purchase at particular price levels, the Company's and Mr. Price's business and prospects, other business investment opportunities available to Mr. Price, economic conditions, stock market conditions, money market conditions, the attitudes and actions of the board of directors and management of the Company, the availability and nature of opportunities to dispose of Mr. Price's interest in the Company, to realize trading profits or minimize trading losses, and other plans and requirements of Mr. Price. Depending upon his assessment of these factors from time to time, Mr. Price may change his present intentions as stated above, including determining to acquire additional Common Shares or other securities of the Company (by means of open-market or privately negotiated purchases) or to dispose of some or all of the Common Shares or other securities of the Company held by or under his control. In addition, Mr. Price may, from time to time, enter into equity swap or other derivative transactions with respect to his investment in the Common Shares or other securities of the Company. Mr. Price is relying on the exemption in Section 100.1 of the Securities Act (Ontario) with respect to the acquisition of Common Shares described in this news release.
