CALGARY, Alberta–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Walton Westphalia Development Corporation (the “Corporation”) has
converted (the “Conversion“) its 8% unsecured, subordinated,
convertible, extendable debentures and related interest debentures
(collectively, the “Debentures“) and unpaid accrued interest
thereon up to and including May 5, 2019, into class B non-voting common
shares of the Corporation (“Class B Shares“), as previously
announcing on April 24, 2019. The Conversion was completed effective May
6, 2019.

Pursuant to the Conversion, holders of Debentures received, for each
$1,000 amount of Debentures and outstanding interest thereon, 2,104.5146
Class B Shares. As a result, the approximate total of $23.9 million of
Debentures and interest thereon outstanding was converted into
50,408,558.2122 Class B Shares. There are now 53,425,728.2122 Class B
Shares outstanding and no Debentures outstanding. Fractional Class B
Shares were issued on the Conversion rounded up to the nearest fourth

As each holder of Class B Shares prior to the Conversion were also
debenture holders at that time based on the proportions issued by the
Corporation under its original prospectus and private placement
offerings, the percentage of the total number of outstanding Class B
Shares held by each shareholder immediately prior to the Conversion did
not change as a result of the Conversion. The Conversion did not dilute
any ownership interests and all existing shareholders will continue to
own their existing percentage of the overall assets and liabilities of
the Corporation.

No action will be required on the part of the Debenture holders to
complete the Conversion. The Conversion will be processed by the trustee
of the Debentures, Computershare Trust Company of Canada and, upon
issuance of the Class B Shares, the Corporation will be discharged of
all of its liability for the repayment of the principal amount and
unpaid interest accrued under the Debentures. Notwithstanding that no
action is required on the part of Debenture holders with respect to the
Conversion, the Corporation and Computershare request that Debenture
holders mail the certificates evidencing their Debentures (including
interest debentures) to Computershare for cancellation at the following
