Purchasers under this offering who are shareholders of record on 25 November 2015 (the record date) will be entitled to receive the corporation's monthly cash dividend payable on 15 December 2015 in respect of any common shares held on the record date.
The common shares were offered pursuant to a prospectus supplement under the short form base shelf prospectus filed by the corporation on 18 March 2015 in each of the provinces of Canada and in the US pursuant to applicable registration exemptions.
The common shares issued pursuant to the offering have not been registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the US absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements thereunder.
