daily trading volume of the Series D Debentures for the six month period ended March
31, 2013 was 21 Series D Debentures. (aggregate principal amount of $21,000). 25% of
the average daily trading volume of the Series D Debentures for the six month period

(c)      there were 46,000 Series E Debentures (having an aggregate principal amount of
$46,000,000) issued and outstanding, all of which comprise the public float.  The average
daily trading volume of the Series E Debentures for the six month period ended March

(d)      23 Series F Debentures ($23,000 aggregate principal amount).

Temple sought approval of the NCIBs because it believes that, from time to time, the market price of the Debentures (or a particular series of Debentures) may not fully reflect the underlying value of series of Debentures.  Temple believes that, in such circumstances, the purchase of the applicable series of Debentures represents an attractive investment for Temple.
