Dividends on the Mandatory Convertible Preference Shares will be payable on a cumulative basis when, as and if declared by our board of directors, at an annual rate of 6.375% on the liquidation preference of $50.00 per share. The dividends may be paid in cash, or subject to certain limitations, in common shares or any combination of cash and common shares on January 1, April 1, July 1 and October 1 of each year, commencing on October 1, 2013, and to, and including, July 1, 2016. Net proceeds from this offering, after deducting underwriting discounts, commissions and expenses are expected to be approximately $581 million.
