  3. In accordance with TSX rules, any daily repurchases with respect to: (i) the Series 4, Series 8, Series 9, Series 17, Series 24, Series 36, Series 38 and Series 42 Preferred Shares will be limited to 1,000 shares of the respective series and (ii) each of the other series of Preferred Shares (excluding the Series 4, Series 8, Series 9, Series 17, Series 24, Series 36, Series 38 and Series 42 Preferred Shares) will be limited to 25% of the average daily trading volume on the TSX of the respective series.

As of August 12, 2022, under its current normal course issuer bid that commenced on August 20, 2021 and will expire on August 19, 2022, and which was approved by the TSX, Brookfield has not made any purchases of the Preferred Shares.

Brookfield is renewing its normal course issuer bid because it believes that, from time to time, the Preferred Shares may trade in price ranges that do not fully reflect their value. Brookfield believes that, in such circumstances, acquiring the Preferred Shares represents an attractive and desirable use of its available funds.

Brookfield will enter into an automatic share purchase plan on or about the week of September 19, 2022 in relation to the normal course issuer bid. The automatic share purchase plan will allow for the purchase of Preferred Shares, subject to certain trading parameters, at times when Brookfield ordinarily would not be active in the market due to its own internal trading black-out period, insider trading rules or otherwise. Outside of these periods, the Preferred Shares will be repurchased in accordance with management’s discretion and in compliance with applicable law.
