Purchases of Common Shares under the NCIB will be made in accordance with TSX by-laws, rules, and policies through the facilities of the TSX and/or through alternative Canadian trading systems. All Common Shares purchased by FTG will be cancelled. The price paid for any repurchased Common Shares will be the market price of such Common Shares at the time of acquisition. The average daily trading volume of the Common Shares of the Corporation from the start of trading on November 1, 2022, through April 30, 2023, was 22,946 Common Shares and, accordingly, daily purchases will be limited to 5,736 Common Shares other than block purchase exemptions.
