Following the closing of the Offering (assuming no exercise of the over-allotment option), Bedrock Industries B.V. will hold, 65,426,988 Common Shares, representing approximately 73.7% of the issued and outstanding Shares.

The Common Shares will be offered in each of the provinces and territories of Canada pursuant to the Company’s base shelf prospectus dated February 8, 2018 and may also be offered by way of private placement in the United States. The terms of the Offering will be described in a prospectus supplement to be filed with Canadian securities regulators. The lead Underwriters are waiving a lock-up restriction with respect to the Common Shares held by the Selling Shareholder to be sold in the Offering.

The securities offered have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements.
