NOTE TO STAKEHOLDERS REGARDING GOLF TOWN LIMITED:
During the CCAA proceedings, the Court granted an Approval and Vesting Order approving the sale of the Golf Town Entities' business to Golf Town Limited - an entity owned by Fairfax Financial Holdings Limited and certain investment funds managed by CI Investments Inc. The transaction successfully closed on October 31, 2016 and Golf Town Limited continues to operate the business in the normal course. On May 31, 2018 and June 4, 2018, the Golf Town Entities that were subject to the CCAA proceedings filed assignments in bankruptcy in order to complete the wind-down of the Golf Town Entities' estates.
