In connection with the Secondary Offering, the Company will file a prospectus supplement (the «Prospectus Supplement») to the Company’s short form base shelf prospectus dated March 28, 2024 (the «Shelf Prospectus») in all of the provinces and territories of Canada. Under the terms of the BTA, there are no CDIs being offered pursuant to the Prospectus Supplement and the Shelf Prospectus in any of the provinces and territories of Canada.

CDIs will be offered to certain eligible investors in Australia, and certain other foreign jurisdictions where the distribution of CDIs does not require a prospectus, registration, reporting or similar requirements of securities of laws of any jurisdiction. As part of the Secondary Offering, Orion has agreed, subject to certain limited exceptions, not to sell any Common Shares or other securities of Capstone for a period of 90 days from the date of the BTA.

This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or solicitation of an offer to buy any of these securities in the United States or in any jurisdiction in which the offering or sale is not permitted.
