In accordance with the rules, the Company has filed a first time notice of use of Notice-and-Access, which is available on the Company’s profile at www.sedar.com. The Company will post on its website, www.westislandbrands.com, the meeting circular in respect of the Meeting to be held on March 10, 2015.
