In addition, this summary does not take into account the individual facts and circumstances of any particular U.S. Holder that may affect the U.S. federal income tax consequences applicable to such holder. Accordingly, this summary is not intended to be, and should not be construed as, legal or U.S. federal income tax advice with respect to any U.S. Holder. Each U.S. Holder should consult its own independent tax advisor regarding the U.S. federal income tax consequences of the Arrangement.

No legal opinion from U.S. legal counsel or ruling from the Internal Revenue Service (the “IRS”) has been requested, or is expected to be obtained, regarding the U.S. federal income tax consequences described below. This summary is not binding on the IRS, and the IRS is not precluded from taking a position that is different from the positions described in this summary. Because the authorities on which this summary is based are subject to various interpretations, the IRS and the U.S. courts could disagree with one or more of the positions described in this summary.
