|Use of proceeds:|
We estimate that the net proceeds from the offering will be approximately $789.5 million (or approximately $908.0 million if the underwriters exercise their over-allotment option in full), after deducting the underwriters’ discount and estimated offering expenses payable by us.
We currently expect to use the net proceeds from the offering and the Concurrent Equity Offering to further strengthen our balance sheet, providing us flexibility to fund our growth strategies that may include: product innovation, future acquisitions and strategic partnerships. Pending their use, we intend to invest the net proceeds from the offering and the Concurrent Equity Offering in short-term, investment grade, interest bearing instruments or hold them as cash.
We may not redeem the Notes prior to September 15, 2023, except if less than $80 million aggregate principal amount of Notes remains outstanding as described under “Description of Notes—Cleanup Redemption” in the preliminary prospectus supplement or in the event of certain changes in Canadian tax law as described under “Description of Notes—Redemption for Changes in Canadian Tax Law” in the preliminary prospectus supplement. We may redeem for cash all or any portion of the Notes, at our option, on or after September 15, 2023 if the last reported sale price on the NYSE of the Class A Shares has been at least 130% of the conversion price then in effect for at least 20 trading days (whether or not consecutive) during any 30 consecutive trading day period (including the last trading day of such period) ending on, and including, the trading day immediately preceding the date on which we provide notice of redemption at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the notes to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the redemption date.
|Adjustment to conversion rate upon conversion in connection with a make-whole fundamental change or during a redemption period: |
Following certain corporate events which are a “fundamental change” (as defined under “Description of Notes—Conversion Rights—Increase in Conversion Rate upon Conversion upon a Make-whole Fundamental Change or during a Redemption Period” in the preliminary prospectus supplement) that occur prior to the maturity date or if we issue a notice of redemption, we will increase the conversion rate by reference to the table below, for a holder who elects to convert its Notes in connection with such fundamental change or who elects to convert its Notes called for redemption during the related redemption period in certain circumstances as described under “Description of Notes—Conversion Rights—Increase in Conversion Rate upon Conversion upon a Make-whole Fundamental Change or during a Redemption Period” in the preliminary prospectus supplement.
The following table sets forth the number of additional shares by which the conversion rate will be increased per $1,000 principal amount of Notes:

The exact share prices and effective dates or redemption notice dates may not be set forth in the table above, in which case:
If the share price is between two share prices in the table or the effective date or redemption notice date, as the case may be, is between two effective dates or redemption notice dates, as applicable, in the table, the number of additional shares by which the conversion rate will be increased will be determined by a straight-line interpolation between the number of additional shares set forth for the higher and lower share prices and the earlier and later effective dates or redemption notice dates, as applicable, based on a 365-day year.
If the share price is greater than $4,000.00 per share (subject to adjustment in the same manner as the share prices set forth in the column headings of the table above), no additional shares will be added to the conversion rate.
If the share price is less than $900.00 per share (subject to adjustment in the same manner as the share prices set forth in the column headings of the table above), no additional shares will be added to the conversion rate.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event will the conversion rate per $1,000 principal amount of Notes exceed 1.1111 Class A Shares, subject to adjustment in the same manner as the conversion rate as set forth under “Description of Notes—Conversion Rate Adjustments” in the preliminary prospectus supplement.
