The Settlement Shares will be subject to resale restrictions under applicable U.S. and Canadian securities laws.
The Settlement Agreement is not considered an admission of the correctness of the claims advanced by either party, or of liability or responsibility by either party. All other terms of the Settlement Agreement are confidential.
