Dividends for 2002-2018

Redemption features:

Series 2 preferred shares are redeemable at Bombardier Inc.'s option at $25.00 per share on August 1, 2002 or at $25.50 per share thereafter.

Conversion features:

Series 2 preferred shares are convertible on a one-for-one basis on August 1, 2012 and on August 1 of every fifth year thereafter into Series 3 preferred shares. Fourteen days preceding a conversion date, if the number of Series 2 preferred shares outstanding is less than 1,000,000 shares, they will automatically be converted into an equal number of Series 3 preferred shares.

Dividends:

As of September 15, 2002, dividends are payable monthly, if declared, with the annual floating dividend rate on Series 2 preferred shares equal to 80% of the Canadian prime rate for the first payment. The dividend rate will float in relation to changes in the prime rate and will be adjusted upwards or downwards on a monthly basis to a monthly maximum fluctuation of 4%, if the trading price of the Series 2 preferred shares is less than $24.90 per share, or more than $25.10 per share. The annual dividend rate applicable in a month will in no event be less than 50% of prime or greater than prime.

The dividend amount on the Series 2 preferred shares is obtained by multiplying the par value of the shares ($25.00) by the determined percentage rate (i.e. 80%) multiplied by the prime rate on the specific month (i.e. 4.5%), which results in a yearly dividend, which is then divided by 12 to get the monthly dividend.

For example, in September, the prime rate was 4.5%. Therefore, the dividend amount paid for this specific month was $0.075 ($25.00 times 80% of 4.5% results in a yearly dividend of $0.90, which is then divided by 12).

In October, the prime rate was 4.5%. Because the share price was below $24.90, the percentage of prime paid increased by 4% to 84% and the dividend amount paid for this specific month was $0.07875 ($25.00 times 84% of 4.5%, which is then divided by 12).
