There are (i) 63,671,176 Subordinate Voting Shares issued and outstanding, of which 63,671,170 Subordinate Voting Shares are held by public shareholders and 6 are held indirectly by CSI (as fractional shares were not distributed as part of the dividend-in-kind), (ii) 63,582,712 Preferred Shares issued and outstanding that are held indirectly by CSI, (iii) 1 Super Voting Share issued and outstanding that is held indirectly by CSI; and (iv) 10,178,504 Special Shares issued and outstanding that are held by certain pre-acquisition shareholders of WideOrbit (the “Rolling Special Shareholders”).
