Some shareholders may also have received a voting instruction form.If you have not yet received the Meeting materials by mail, you are encouraged to access them under Indigo's profile at www.sedar.com or from the Indigo website at www.chapters.indigo.ca/investor-relations/.All proxies and voting instruction forms must be received by CIBC Mellon by 10:00 a.m. (Toronto time) on Thursday, June 30, 2011.Complete information about voting at the upcoming Meeting is contained in the management information circular for the Meeting. As a result of the Canadian postal disruption, Indigo wishes to remind its registered and beneficial shareholders of ways to vote their shares at the Meeting and encourage them to vote using an alternative to mail.You are a registered shareholder if you hold paper share certificates registered in your name. You are a beneficial shareholder if your shares are held on your behalf by a broker, bank, trust company, securities dealer or other intermediary.Most shareholders are beneficial shareholders. If you are not sure whether you are a registered or beneficial shareholder, or if you should be using a form of proxy or a voting instruction form, please contact CIBC Mellon at 416.643.5500 or toll-free in North America at 1.800.387.0825 and they will be able to assist.Registered Shareholders Registered shareholders who do not intend to attend the Meeting in person can vote their shares in advance of the Meeting. As an alternative to mail, registered shareholders can vote by proxy as follows:By fax (worldwide) - complete the form of proxy, sign and date it and fax it to CIBC Mellon, Attention Proxy Department at 1.416.368.2502 or toll free in North America at 1.866.781.3111. A control number is not needed for this method. Please note that the form of proxy found on SEDAR is not personalized and each registered shareholder must clearly print the shareholder's name exactly as it appears on the share certificate, indicate the number of common shares held and then sign and date the form before submitting it.By appointing someone to attend the Meeting for you and vote your shares - write the name of the person you are appointing in the space provided on the form of proxy. Complete your voting instructions, sign and date the form. The person you appoint does not need to be an Indigo shareholder. A control number is not needed for this method.Beneficial Shareholders Beneficial shareholders may receive a voting instruction form.
