Although it is still Tucows’ intent not to purchase shares from its management team or other insiders, sales by such persons through the facilities of NYSE AMEX or the TSX may occur if the circumstances of any such person or entity changes or any such person or entity makes a decision unrelated to these normal course purchases. The benefits to any such person or entity whose shares are purchased would be the same as the benefits available to all other holders whose shares are purchased by Tucows in connection with the normal course issuer bid.
