The NAESPP operates as follows:

  • Each month the Administrator uses participants’ contributions (between 1% and 5% of base salary limited to a maximum investment of $10,000 per annum) to purchase shares in the market. These shares are called Partnership Shares and are registered in the name of the participant.
  • For every two Partnership Shares the participants still own after two years the Company awards one Matching Share on the second anniversary of the Partnership Shares purchase.
  • Participants may hold both fractional and whole Partnership and Matching Shares.
  • Participants may change their monthly savings rate whenever they wish. However, Directors and others bound by the Company’s Securities Dealing Code (the Code) may not make such a change during a close period or when otherwise prohibited from dealing by the Code.
  • The NAESPP is only open to employees of the Company based in Canada and the United States. No other Directors or PDMRs of the Company are participants in the NAESPP.
