To subscribe for Common Shares you must present to Computershare Trust Company, N.A. (the “Subscription Agent” or “Computershare”), prior to 5:00 p.m., Eastern time, on the Expiration Date of June 23, 2022 (unless extended), either: (a) a properly completed and executed Subscription Certificate and payment as described herein for the number of Common Shares subscribed for under the Primary Subscription Right (and, if you are a Record Date Common Shareholder electing to exercise the Over-Subscription Privilege, pursuant to the terms of the Over-Subscription Privilege); or (b) a notice of guaranteed delivery (the “Notice of Guaranteed Delivery”) guaranteeing delivery of a properly completed and executed Subscription Certificate. You will have no right to rescind a purchase after the Subscription Agent has received a properly completed and executed Subscription Certificate and payment by means of a check.

To subscribe for your primary Common Shares, please complete line “A” on the card below. If you are not subscribing for your full Primary Subscription Right, check box “D” below, and we will attempt to sell any remaining unexercised Rights. There can be no assurance that unexercised Rights will be sold, or regarding the costs or proceeds that will result from any completed sales. To subscribe for any Over-Subscription Shares, please complete line “B” below.

Please Note: Only Record Date Common Shareholders who have exercised their Primary Subscription Right to the fullest extent possible may apply for Common Shares pursuant to the Over-Subscription Privilege.

Payment for Shares: Full payment for Common Shares purchased pursuant to both the Primary Subscription Right and the Over-Subscription Privilege must accompany this Subscription Certificate or Notice of Guaranteed Delivery. Please reference your rights card control number on your check or Notice of Guaranteed Delivery.

If the aggregate Subscription Price paid by a Record Date Common Shareholder is insufficient to purchase the number of Common Shares that the holder indicates are being subscribed for, or if a Record Date Common Shareholder does not specify the number of Common Shares to be purchased, then the Record Date Common Shareholder will be deemed to have exercised first the Primary Subscription Right (if not already fully exercised), and second the Over-Subscription Privilege to the full extent of the payment rendered. If the aggregate Subscription Price paid by a Record Date Common Shareholder exceeds the amount necessary to purchase the number of Common Shares for which the Record Date Common Shareholder has indicated an intention to subscribe, then the Record Date Common Shareholder will be deemed to have exercised first the Primary Subscription Right (if not already fully exercised), and second the Over-Subscription Privilege to the full extent of the excess payment tendered.
