The Special Voting Preferred Share entitles the Trustee to exercise the number of votes equal to the number of Exchangeable Shares outstanding on a one-for-one basis during the term of the Trust Agreement. The Special Voting Preferred Share is not entitled to receive any dividends or to receive any assets of the Company upon liquidation and is not convertible into shares of common stock of the Company.
