On December 3, 2018, Capital Power notified registered shareholders of the Company’s Cumulative 5-Year Rate Reset Preference Shares, Series 3 (Series 3 Shares) of the conversion privilege and dividend rate notice.

Excerpt from Prospectus Supplement
Holders of the Series 3 Shares will be entitled to receive fixed cumulative preferential cash dividends, if, as and when declared by the board of directors of the Corporation, payable quarterly on the last business day of each of March, June, September and December at an annual rate of $1.15 per Series 3 Share for the initial period from and including the Closing Date to but excluding December 31, 2018 (the “Initial Fixed Rate Period”). The initial dividend, if declared, will be payable on March 28, 2013 and will be $0.3151 per Series 3 Share, based on the anticipated closing of this Offering on December 18, 2012.
For each five‐year period after the Initial Fixed Rate Period, the holders of the Series 3 Shares will be entitled to receive fixed cumulative preferential cash dividends, if, as and when declared by the Board of Directors, payable quarterly on the last business day of each of March, June, September and December at the Annual Fixed Dividend Rate. The Corporation will determine on the 30th day prior to the first day of a Subsequent Fixed Rate Period, the annual fixed dividend rate applicable to that Subsequent Fixed Rate Period (the “Annual Fixed Dividend Rate”). Written notice of the Annual Fixed Dividend Rate for the upcoming Subsequent Fixed Rate Period will be provided by the Corporation to the registered holders on the 30th day prior to the first day of a Subsequent Fixed Rate Period. The Annual Fixed Dividend Rate will be equal to the sum of the 5‐Year Government of Canada Bond Yield on the 30th day prior to the first day of a Subsequent Fixed Rate Period plus 3.23%. See “Details of the Offering” in Prospectus Supplement.
The Series 3 Shares will not be redeemable by the Corporation prior to December 31, 2018. On December 31, 2018 and on December 31 every five years thereafter, subject to certain other restrictions set out in “Details of the Offering ‐ Provisions Common to the Series 3 Shares and the Series 4 Shares ‐ Restrictions on Dividends and Retirement of Shares”, the Corporation may, at its option, upon not less than 30 days and not more than 60 days prior written notice to the holders of the Series 3 Shares, redeem all or any number of the outstanding Series 3 Shares by the payment of $25.00 in cash per Series 3 Share together with all declared and unpaid dividends to but excluding the date fixed for redemption (less any tax required to be deducted and withheld by the Corporation). See “Details of the Offering” in Prospectus Supplement.
The Series 3 Shares and the Series 4 Shares do not have a fixed maturity date and are not redeemable at the option of the holders thereof.
Holders of the Series 3 Shares will have the right, at their option, to convert their Series 3 Shares into Cumulative Floating Rate Preference Shares, Series 4 on the basis of one Series 4 Share for each Series 3 Share, subject to certain conditions, on December 31, 2018 and on December 31 every five years thereafter. Series 4 Shares will be entitled to floating rate cumulative preferential cash dividends, if, as and when declared by the Board of Directors, payable quarterly on the last business day of each of March, June, September and December in an amount per Series 4 Share determined by multiplying the applicable Floating Quarterly Dividend Rate by $25.00. The Floating Quarterly Dividend Rate for any Quarterly Floating Rate Period will be equal to the sum of the T‐Bill Rate plus 3.23% per annum (calculated on the basis of the actual number of days in the applicable Quarterly Floating Rate Period divided by 365) determined on the Floating Rate Calculation Date. See “Details of the Offering” in Prospectus Supplement.
