A Note to Shareholders Regarding the CIRI Calendar

As you may have noticed, CIRI did not produce a 2018 calendar. The cost for producing, printing and mailing the calendar is significant and increases each year. Therefore, after receiving feedback from the Shareholder Participation Committees, as well as from shareholders at various Information Meetings, CIRI opted not to publish a 2018 calendar. Based on both costs and feedback from shareholders, CIRI is prepared to reevaluate the decision in the coming year.

To keep shareholders and descendants informed of important CIRI dates, such as CIRI events, dividend payment dates and deadlines for upcoming opportunities, we have added sections to our website, at ciri.com/shareholders, and in the Qenek shareholder portal.
