The Redemption Amount will be satisfied, subject to receipt of all necessary approvals including the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”), shareholders and debentureholders, by the issuance of common shares (“Common Shares”) in the capital of Toscana at a price per Common Share of $0.15898 (a change from the previously announced price of $0.13299 as a result of a review by the TSX of the treatment of historical trading data used to calculate the price per Common Share).
