The COS Board has received an opinion from its financial advisor, RBC Capital Markets, that, as of January 17, 2016, the consideration under the Amended Offer is fair, from a financial point of view, to COS shareholders. The COS Board has determined that the Amended Offer is in the best interests of COS and recommends that shareholders tender to the Amended Offer.
