Caution Regarding Forward-Looking Information
This release includes certain forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements generally can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "may", "will", "expect", "intend", "estimate", "anticipate", "believe", "should", "plans" or "continue" or the negative thereof or variations thereon or similar terminology. Although the Company believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, it can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct.  These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties. Actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements. Reference should be made to the risk factors in the Company's 2017 Annual Information Form, in the Management's Discussion and Analysis for the year ended December 31, 2017 and in our other filings with Canadian securities regulators. Additional important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from expectations include, among other things, general economic and market factors, competition, interest rates, tax related matters, loss of personnel, reliance on key personnel, ability of the Company to execute its strategies from time to time including the Monetization Event; the receipt of any regulatory approvals or consents required from time to time.

Cautionary Statement Regarding the Use of Non-IFRS Financial Measures
This news release makes reference to the net book value per share which is a non-IFRS financial measure both on a consolidated basis including non-controlling interests with respect to the Company's investment in Monarch and on a non-consolidated basis attributable solely to the Company's shareholders without non-controlling interests.  These measures are non-IFRS financial measures.  The Company calculates the net book values per Share as it believes it to be an important metric that shareholders use and frequently request and refer to because shareholders often view the Company as a holding company of investments. These non-IFRS financial measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and therefore are unlikely to be comparable to a similar measure presented by other issuers.  This classification is not an IFRS measure and should not be considered either in isolation of, or as a substitute for, a measure prepared in accordance with IFRS.
