Each bundled unit consists of $100 principal amount of 7% unsecured subordinated debentures of the Corporation due August 31, 2012, 15 trust units of the Trust and 15 trust unit purchase warrants of the Trust. Each warrant entitles the holder to acquire one trust unit at a price of $2.60 expiring on February 28, 2012. After closing, each of the debentures, trust units and warrants trade separately.
Additional closings: Additional closings may also occur until March 31, 2006.

Trading information: The debentures, trust units and warrants began trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange on February 21, 2006 under the symbols CAI.DB, CNM.UN and CNM.WT respectively.

The investment objectives of the Trust are (i) to provide unitholders with semi-annual cash distributions, initially expected to be $0.155 per trust unit per annum (7.75% of the original issue price of the trust security), and (ii) to preserve and potentially enhance the value of the portfolio in order to return to unitholders at least $2.00 per trust unit upon the termination of the trust in 2012.
