Operator

Thank Mr. Antal. you,

We will Instructions] Tyler begin the question-and-answer. Please now Langton go from JPMorgan. is Your with question first [Operator ahead.

Tyler Langton

can now guess, detail little accelerate just are kind about of for then, offset of mentioned coming And that the little a of that now, you're more improvement with then I from? still and continuous you bit, if guess Maybe it's of the have of and negatively, to start, kind what could you level what pressures geared I and more that's like items to you those get sort are be sort room Canada. bit XXXX, the that a of items seeing talk to you benefiting inflation, kind them inflation you U.S. at, towards some levels expect

Alison White

for are definitely meant we you I some, the Yes, Tyler, Tyler. that. appreciate Certainly and thank Taylor, And seeing said I question.

So apologies.

within other have chain So the we've result are market And anyhow, those, that focus continuous that question, and seen some area offsets Canadian this in those areas our to from increases answer pressures on Most seen. primarily that inflationary come terms through business. so the particularly U.S. of a we've the the your overall. we within the cost of in as in labor to business supply have to improvement coming primarily of activities Canadian

And anticipating, large continue those pressures, additional in XXXX, that the are some what likely and so mentioned inputs some use. on consumables inflationary for offsets really, in diesel and chain or look primarily are And offset in we still for costs, we we but where other as see other can, supply area of that based XXXX. will we we working we will, areas try to through those might like I

Tyler Langton

Perfect. guess for second question I Rod. is And then,

buyback, now? kind as shareholders, can look just largely this you allocation you're completed in your for right of the cash M&A, projects, You've growth terms and share organic preferences sort forward, of just those kind capital kind you about talk thoughts returning of of to how of about thinking

Rodney Antal

is against the been to company the returns buybacks actually them. in do. important what said, many was for what which Look, we've form placeholder share too able to year I promised against Yes. executed capital we this see times execute do I you've an never There's of and think think

continue release seen pay execute to today. against the that you've our also what program year only not buyback think share done but dividend, at base this is rate I we've the

start So I think sort us was that an important for as of business. a

approach Our a in reinvesting color of It's capital the to business. continuation hasn't approach we're of going allocation to way in changed the terms it. holistically

key will per well we'll of of resetting, supplementing continue we to. for the $X.XX whether Stew that and/or our adding assets around that look us, the comes so a actually, presentation base set dividends buyback. at of a be allocation as around, to to have is more Some look were We'll around of a next which capital focus dividend, around that the portfolio key supplementing of a to look growth one base share at methods in per dividend And year, as the as the time at share we'll have terms as the exciting we it's areas our have annum. evaluate a put in of the within as all continue and outlined options we'll where

we that to SSR capital of that's that very forward. in there will want yet yield really put all. part changed why and in it holistic it set But as for can hasn't return So haven't and allocation growth clear framework do our invest it, to feature we it were approach to shareholders. to out we principle the to but as a Continue going be company a seen that
