A webcast of the presentation and an audio file will be available at www.cpr.ca under "Invest In CP" tab.Non-GAAP MeasuresWe present non-GAAP measures and cash flow information to provide a basis for evaluating underlying earnings and liquidity trends in our business that can be compared with the results of our operations in prior periods.  These non-GAAP measures exclude significant items that are not among our normal ongoing revenues and operating expenses.  They have no standardized meaning and are not defined by GAAP and, therefore, are unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.Diluted earnings per share, excluding significant items provides management with a measure of earnings on a per share basis that can help in a multi-period assessment of long-term profitability and also allows management and other external users of our consolidated financial statements to compare profitability on a long-term basis with that of our peers.  U.S. GAAP reported full year diluted earnings per share in 2012 was $2.79.  Diluted earnings per share, excluding significant items was $4.34, which excludes the fourth quarter significant items discussed above as well as an additional $0.35 related to management transition costs, advisory fees related to shareholder matters and an Ontario statutory tax rate change.  U.S. GAAP reported full year diluted earnings per share in 2011 was $3.34.  Diluted earnings per share, excluding significant items was $3.15, which excludes advisory fees related to shareholder matters and a significant favourable tax item.  Operating ratio, excluding significant items provides a measure of the profitability of the railway on an ongoing basis.  It provides the percentage of revenues used to operate the railway on an ongoing basis as it excludes significant items.For further information regarding non-GAAP measures see our Management's Discussion and Analysis for the third quarter of 2012 or the document Non-GAAP Measures on our web site at www.cpr.ca.Note on forward-looking informationThis news release contains certain forward-looking statements relating but not limited to our operations, anticipated financial performance, planned capital expenditures, and business prospects.  Undue reliance should not be placed on forward-looking information as actual results may differ materially. To the extent that we have provided guidance that contains non-GAAP financial measures, we may not be able to provide a reconciliation to the GAAP measure due to unknown variables and uncertainty related to future results.By its nature, CP's forward-looking information involves numerous assumptions, inherent risks and uncertainties, including but not limited to the following factors: changes in business strategies; general North American and global economic, credit and business conditions; risks in agricultural production such as weather conditions and insect populations; the availability and price of energy commodities; the effects of competition and pricing pressures; industry capacity; shifts in market demand; inflation; changes in laws and regulations, including regulation of rates; changes in taxes and tax rates; potential increases in maintenance and operating costs; uncertainties of investigations, proceedings or other types of claims and litigation; labour disputes; risks and liabilities arising from derailments; transportation of dangerous goods; timing of completion of capital and maintenance projects; currency and interest rate fluctuations; effects of changes in market conditions and discount rates on the financial position of pension plans and investments; and various events that could disrupt operations, including severe weather, droughts, floods, avalanches and earthquakes as well as security threats and governmental response to them, and technological changes.  Other risks are detailed from time to time in reports filed by CP with securities regulators in Canada and the United States.  Reference should be made to "Management's Discussion and Analysis" in CP's annual and interim reports, Annual Information Form and Form 40-F.Except as required by law, CP undertakes no obligation to update publicly or otherwise revise any forward-looking information, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.About Canadian PacificCanadian Pacific (TSX:CP)(NYSE:CP) is a transcontinental railway in Canada and the United States with direct links to eight major ports, including Vancouver and Montreal, providing North American customers a competitive rail service with access to key markets in every corner of the globe.

of Canadian Pacific Railway Limited ("CP", or "the Company") reflects management's estimates and assumptions that are necessary for its fair presentation in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP").  This information does not include all disclosures required under GAAP for annual and interim financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the 2011 consolidated financial statements and 2012 consolidated interim financial statements.  The accounting policies used are consistent with the accounting policies used in preparing the 2011 consolidated financial statements.CP's operations can be affected by seasonal fluctuations such as changes in customer demand and weather-related issues.  This seasonality could impact quarter-over-quarter comparisons.In management's opinion, the unaudited interim consolidated financial information includes all adjustments necessary to present fairly such information.2  Asset impairment (in millions of Canadian dollars)For the threemonths endedDecember 31, 2012  Powder River Basin impairment and other investment(1)(a)$185Impairment loss on locomotives(b) 80Asset impairment, before tax   $265           (1)Includes impairment of other investment of $5 million         (a) Powder River Basin impairment As part of the acquisition of Dakota, Minnesota & Eastern Railroad Corporation ("DM&E") in 2007, CP acquired the option to build a 260 mile extension of its network into coal mines in the Powder River Basin ("PRB").Due to continued deterioration in the market for domestic thermal coal, including a sharp deterioration in 2012, in the fourth quarter of 2012 CP deferred plans to extend its rail network into the PRB coal mines indefinitely.  The amount of the impairment was $180 million ($107 million after tax).  The impairment was comprised of the following and was charged against income as an "Asset impairment":           (in millions of Canadian dollars)For the threemonths endedDecember 31, 2012          Option impairment     $26Construction plans, including capitalized interest      134Land, land option appraisals, including capitalized interest      20Total impairment     $180(b) Impairment loss on locomotivesIn the fourth quarter of 2012, CP reached a decision to dispose of a certain series of locomotives to improve operating efficiencies, and accordingly performed an impairment test on these assets.  The impairment test determined that the net book value of these locomotives at the date of the impairment test was $80 million higher than their estimated fair value.  The impairment charge of $80 million ($59 million after tax) was recorded as an "Asset impairment" to be consistent with CP's policy to record a gain or loss for the sale or retirement of larger groups of depreciable assets that are unusual, and were not anticipated in depreciation studies.3  Labour restructuring  In the fourth quarter of 2012, CP recorded a charge of $53 million ($39 million after tax) for a labour restructuring initiative which was included in "Labour restructuring" in the Consolidated Statements of Income, and "Accounts payable and accrued liabilities" and "Other long-term liabilities" in the Consolidated Balance Sheets.  The resulting position reductions are expected to be completed by the end of 2014.Summary of

presentation or have been updated to reflect new information.(2) Fuel efficiency is defined as U.S. gallons of locomotive fuel consumed per 1,000 GTMs - freight and yard.(3) Includes gallons of fuel consumed from freight, yard and commuter service but excludes fuel used in capital projects and other non-freight activities.(4)Gross Ton-Mile (GTM) is the movement of the combined tons (freight car tare, inactive locomotive tare, and contents) a distance of one mile.(5)     OE per GTM - Adjusted is calculated consistently with OE per GTM except for the exclusion of net gains on land sales, to eliminate the volatile nature of these sales, fuel price impact, to remove the volatility of fuel prices and to provide comparative fuel expenses at the 2011 fuel price, CEO transition, asset impairment and labour restructuring costs, to eliminate the impact of these significant items that are not among our normal ongoing operating expenses.  Net gains on land sales were $1 million and $20 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively, and $23 million and $25 million for the year ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.  The impact in fuel price, net of hedging and B.C. carbon tax, was unfavourable $2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012 and unfavourable $25 million for the year ended December 31, 2012. CEO transition costs were nil for the three months ended December 31, 2012 and $42 million for the year ended December 31, 2012.  Asset impairment costs were $265 million for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012.  Labour restructuring costs were $53 million for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012.(6)    An employee is defined as an individual who has worked more than 40 hours in a standard biweekly pay period.  This excludes part time employees, contractors, consultants, and trainees.     SOURCE: Canadian PacificFor further information: Contacts:Media  Ed Greenberg  Canadian Pacific  Tel.: (612) 849-4717  24/7 Media Pager: 855-242-3674 e-mail: ed_greenberg@cpr.ca  Investment Community Janet Weiss Canadian Pacific Tel.: (403) 319-3233 e-mail:  investor@cpr.ca
