In accordance with TSX rules, any daily repurchases will be limited to a maximum of 1,000 Shares, based on the average daily trading volume of the Company’s Shares on the TSX for the six months ended July 31, 2020 (being 3,258 Shares).

In connection with the NCIB, Trez intends to enter into an automatic purchase plan with its broker on August 13, 2020 to allow for the purchase of Shares at times when Trez ordinarily would not be active in the market due to its own internal trading blackout periods, insider trading rules or otherwise, in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws.
