TRC Capital has reserved the right to retain all deposited shares throughout that 30-day period and to decline to purchase those shares if it so chooses for any reason, including in the event that the offer price exceeds the market price of Barrick’s shares at the applicable time.

Shareholders are cautioned that they should consult their investment advisors and exercise extreme caution regarding the TRC offer.
