The Company also announces that Director Matthew Wubs will not be seeking re-election at the 2024 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the "2024 Annual Meeting"), as he plans to dedicate more time to his family business.

"On behalf of the Board, I would like to extend our appreciation to Matt for his invaluable contributions and dedication since joining us in 2016," said Christopher Noel Dunn, Chairman of the Board.

Dr. Sally Eyre, Chairperson of the Board's Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, remarked on the transition: "As Matt prepares to leave his Director role in April 2024, we are very pleased to welcome Faheem to the Board. His deep experience in finance, combined with his previous board experience, will bring diverse perspectives to our discussions and decision-making."

Mr. Tejani is a seasoned finance professional with 25 years of experience in capital markets, corporate finance, and mergers and acquisitions. He is currently the President of Capital Asset Lending, one of the largest private mortgage administrators of non-traditional residential mortgages in Canada with approximately $1 billion of assets under management. Prior to this, he dedicated over 17 years of his career to BMO Capital Markets, culminating his tenure as Managing Director in the Equity Capital Markets division, with a focus on the mining and metals sector. Before joining BMO Capital Markets, he worked at one of the largest global accounting firms. Mr. Tejani also notably served on the Board of Directors of Pretium Resources from 2018 to 2022. He holds a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree from the University of Western Ontario and is a Chartered Professional Accountant.

In preparation for these transitions, Jill Angevine has been appointed as the new Chairperson of the Board's Audit Committee. Mr. Wubs will remain a member of the Board's Audit Committee until the 2024 Annual Meeting.
