If the Purchaser and the Company conclude after the date of this Agreement that it is necessary or desirable to proceed with a form of transaction other than pursuant to the Arrangement Agreement (including, without limitation, a take-over bid or tender or exchange offer) whereby the Purchaser and/or its affiliates would effectively acquire all the Subject Securities for consideration of at least $4.10 per Common Share and otherwise on economic terms and other terms and conditions having consequences to the Supporting Shareholder that are substantially equivalent to or better than those contemplated by the Arrangement Agreement (any such transaction is referred to as an “Alternative Transaction”), the Supporting Shareholder agrees to, as applicable, support the completion of the Alternative Transaction in the same manner as this Agreement provides with respect to the Arrangement, including, in the case of a take-over bid and/or tender or exchange offer, by causing all of the Supporting Shareholder’s Subject Securities (as applicable) to be validly tendered in acceptance of such take-over bid and/or tender or exchange offer together with the letter of transmittal and, if applicable, notice of guaranteed delivery, and any other documents required in accordance with such take-over bid and/or tender or exchange offer, and will not withdraw the Supporting Shareholder’s Subject Securities (as applicable) from such take-over bid and/or tender or exchange offer except as expressly otherwise provided in this Agreement.

This Agreement will terminate and be of no further force or effect upon the earliest to occur of:
 

(a)the mutual agreement in writing of the Parties;
 

(b)written notice by the Supporting Shareholder to the Guarantor and the Purchaser if without the prior written consent of the Supporting Shareholder, there is any decrease in the amount of, or change in the form of, Consideration set out in the Arrangement Agreement; provided, that at the time of such termination, the Supporting Shareholder is not in material default in the performance of its obligations under this Agreement;
 

(c)written notice by the Supporting Shareholder if: (i) any of the representations and warranties of the Guarantor and the Purchaser in this Agreement shall not be true and correct in all material respects; or (ii) the Guarantor and the Purchaser shall not have complied with its covenants to the Supporting Shareholder contained in this Agreement in all material respects;

4.2          Effect of Termination
 
If this Agreement is validly terminated in accordance with the provisions of Section 4.1, no Party will have any further liability to perform its obligations under this Agreement except as expressly contemplated by this Agreement, and, provided, that neither the termination of this Agreement nor anything contained in Section 4.1 will relieve any Party from any liability for any breach by it of this Agreement which occurred prior to such termination, including from any inaccuracy in its representations and warranties and any non-performance by it of its covenants made herein, and the Supporting Shareholder shall be entitled to withdraw any form of proxy or power of attorney which it may have given with respect of the Subject Securities.
 
4.3          Equitable Relief
 
The Parties agree that irreparable harm would occur for which money damages would not be an adequate remedy at law in the event that any of the provisions of this Agreement were not performed in accordance with their specific terms or were otherwise breached. It is accordingly agreed that the Parties shall be entitled to injunctive and other equitable relief to prevent breaches or threatened breaches of this Agreement, and to enforce compliance with the terms of this Agreement without any requirement for the securing or posting of any bond in connection with the obtaining of any such injunctive or other equitable relief, this being in addition to any other remedy to which the Parties may be entitled at law or in equity.
 
-9-


4.4          Fiduciary Duty
 
Nothing herein shall restrict or limit any Supporting Shareholder, director or officer of the Supporting Shareholder or any of its affiliates who is also an officer or a director of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries from taking any action required to be taken in the discharge of his or her fiduciary duty as a director or officer of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or that is otherwise permitted by, and done in compliance with, the terms of the Arrangement Agreement. The Purchaser and the Guarantor further hereby agree that the Supporting Shareholder is not making any agreement or understanding herein in any capacity other than in its capacity as shareholder of the Company and that the provisions hereof shall not be deemed or interpreted to bind the Shareholder in her or his capacity as a director of the Company.
 
4.5          Waiver; Amendment
 
Each Party agrees and confirms that any provision of this Agreement may be amended or waived if, and only if, such amendment or waiver is in writing and signed, in the case of an amendment, by both of the Parties or in the case of a waiver, by the Party against whom the waiver is to be effective. No waiver of any of the provisions of this Agreement will constitute a waiver of any other provision (whether or not similar). No waiver will be binding unless executed in writing by the Party to be bound by the waiver. A Party’s failure or delay in exercising any right under this Agreement will not operate as a waiver of that right. A single or partial exercise of any right will not preclude a Party from any other or further exercise of that right or the exercise of any other right. No waiver of any of the provisions of this Agreement will be deemed to constitute a waiver of any other provision (whether or not similar).
 
4.6          Entire Agreement; No Third-Party Beneficiaries
 
This Agreement (i) constitutes the entire agreement between the Parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior agreements and understandings, both written and oral, among the Parties with respect thereto and (ii) is not intended to confer, nor shall it confer, upon any Person other than the parties hereto any rights or remedies or benefits of any nature whatsoever hereunder.
