        Each beneficial owner of Molson Shares who is a Canadian Resident, (other than any such holder who is exempt from tax under the ITA), and who has validly elected (or for whom the holder has

B-9



validly elected on such beneficial owner's behalf) to receive consideration that includes Exchangeable Shares shall be entitled to make an income tax election pursuant to subsection 85(1) of the ITA or, if the beneficial owner is a partnership, subsection 85(2) of the ITA (and in each case, where applicable, the corresponding provisions of any applicable income tax legislation) with respect to the transfer of its Molson Shares to Exchangeco by providing two signed copies of the necessary prescribed election form(s) to the Depositary within 90 days following the Effective Date, duly completed with the details of the number and class of Molson Shares transferred and the allocation of any Preferred Share received as consideration to the shares so transferred and the applicable agreed amounts (which, in respect of the transfer of Molson Class A Shares or Molson Class B Shares, cannot be less than the fair market value of the Preferred Shares allocated to such shares) for the purposes of such elections. Thereafter, subject to the election form(s) being correct and complete and complying with the provisions of the ITA (or the corresponding provisions of any applicable provincial income tax legislation), the form(s) will be signed by Exchangeco and returned to such beneficial owner of Molson Shares within 60 days after the receipt thereof by the Depositary for filing with the Canada Revenue Agency (or the applicable provincial taxing authority) by such beneficial owner. Exchangeco will not be responsible for the proper completion of any election form and, except for Exchangeco's obligation to sign and return duly completed election form(s) which are received by the Depositary within 90 days of the Effective Date, within 60 days after the receipt thereof by the Depositary, Exchangeco will not be responsible for any taxes, interest or penalties resulting from the failure by a beneficial owner of Molson Shares to properly complete or file the election form(s) in the form and manner and within the time prescribed by the ITA (or any applicable provincial income tax legislation). In its sole discretion, Exchangeco may choose to sign and return an election form received by the Depositary more than 90 days following the Effective Date, but Exchangeco will have no obligation to do so.

CERTIFICATES AND FRACTIONAL SHARES

        At or promptly after the Effective Time, Exchangeco shall deposit with the Depositary, for the benefit of the holders of Molson Shares who will receive Exchangeable Shares in connection with the Arrangement, certificates representing that number of whole Exchangeable Shares to be delivered pursuant to section 2.2 upon the exchange of Molson Shares. Upon surrender to the Depositary for cancellation of a certificate which immediately prior to the Effective Time represented Molson Shares that were exchanged for Exchangeable Shares under the Arrangement, together with such other documents and instruments as would have been required to effect the transfer of the shares formerly represented by such certificate under the CBCA and the by-laws of Molson, and such additional documents and instruments as the Depositary may reasonably require, the holder of such surrendered certificate shall be entitled to receive in exchange therefor, and the Depositary shall deliver to such holder, a certificate representing that number (rounded down to the nearest whole number) of the appropriate class of Exchangeable Shares which such holder has the right to receive (together with any dividends or distributions with respect thereto pursuant to section 4.3 and any cash in lieu of fractional Exchangeable Shares pursuant to section 4.4, in each case less any amounts withheld pursuant to section 4.7 hereof), and the certificate so surrendered shall forthwith be cancelled. In the event of a transfer of ownership of Molson Shares that is not registered in the transfer records of Molson, a certificate representing the proper number of Exchangeable Shares may be issued to the transferee if the certificate representing such Molson Shares is presented to the Depositary, accompanied by all documents required to evidence and effect such transfer. Until surrendered as contemplated by this section 4.1, each certificate which immediately prior to the Effective Time represented Molson Shares that were exchanged for Exchangeable Shares shall be deemed at all times after the Effective Time to represent only the right to receive upon such surrender (i) the certificate representing Exchangeable Shares as contemplated by this section 4.1, (ii) a cash payment in lieu of any fractional Exchangeable Shares as contemplated by section 4.4 and (iii) any dividends or distributions with a record date after the Effective Time theretofore paid or payable with respect to Exchangeable Shares as contemplated by section 4.3, in each case less any amounts withheld pursuant to section 4.7.

4.2   Certificates Representing Preferred Shares and Coors Common Stock

        At or promptly after the Effective Time, Exchangeco shall deposit with the Depositary, for the benefit of the holders of Molson Shares who will receive Preferred Shares in connection with the Arrangement, global certificates representing that number of whole Class A Preferred Shares and that number of whole Class B1 Preferred Shares and Class B2 Preferred Shares to be delivered to holders of Molson Shares pursuant to section 2.2 upon the exchange of Molson Shares. At or promptly after the Listing Time, (i) the Depositary (on behalf of the holders of such Preferred Shares) will deliver such global certificates to Callco, (ii) the Depository (on behalf of Exchangeco) will cancel such global

B-11



certificates and deliver to Callco new certificates representing that number of Class A Preferred Shares and that number of Class B1 Preferred Shares and Class B2 Preferred Shares transferred by former holders of Molson Shares to Callco pursuant to section 2.2, and (iii) Callco shall deposit (or shall cause Coors to deposit) with the Depositary, for the benefit of the holders of Class A Preferred Shares, Class B1 Preferred Shares and Class B2 Preferred Shares that are transferred to Callco for Coors Class A Common Stock or Coors Class B Common Stock in connection with the Arrangement, certificates representing that number of whole shares of Coors Class A Common Stock and that number of whole shares of Coors Class B Common Stock to be delivered pursuant to section 2.2 upon the exchange of Preferred Shares for Coors Common Stock. Upon surrender to the Depositary for cancellation of a certificate which immediately prior to the Effective Time represented outstanding Molson Shares that were exchanged for Preferred Shares that were in turn exchanged for shares of Coors Common Stock under the Arrangement, together with such other documents and instruments as would have been required to effect the transfer of the shares formerly represented by such certificate under the CBCA and the Articles and by-laws of Molson, and such additional documents and instruments as the Depositary may reasonably require, the holder of such surrendered certificate shall be entitled to receive in exchange therefore, and the Depositary shall deliver to such holder, a certificate representing that number of shares of the appropriate class of Coors Common Stock which such holder has the right to receive in exchange for Preferred Shares (together with any dividends or distributions with respect thereto pursuant to section 4.3 and any cash in lieu of fractional Preferred Shares pursuant to section 4.4), and the certificate so surrendered shall forthwith be cancelled. In the event of a transfer of ownership of Molson Shares which is not registered in the transfer records of Molson, a certificate representing the proper number of shares of Coors Common Stock may be issued to the transferee if the certificate representing such Molson Shares is presented to the Depositary, accompanied by all documents required to evidence and effect such transfer. Until surrendered as contemplated by this section 4.2, each certificate which immediately prior to the Effective Time represented one or more outstanding Molson Shares that were exchanged for Preferred Shares that were in turn exchanged for shares of Coors Common Stock shall be deemed at all times after the Effective Time to represent only the right to receive upon such surrender (i) the certificate representing the shares of the appropriate class of Coors Common Stock received in exchange for Preferred Shares as contemplated by this section 4.2, (ii) a cash payment in lieu of any fractional Preferred Shares as contemplated by section 4.4 and (iii) any dividends or distributions with a record date after the Listing Time theretofore paid or payable with respect to such shares of Coors Common Stock as contemplated by section 4.3, in each case less any amounts withheld pursuant to section 4.7.

4.3   Distributions with Respect to Unsurrendered Certificates

        No dividends or other distributions declared or made after the Effective Time with respect to Exchangeable Shares, Preferred Shares or Coors Common Stock with a record date after the Effective Time shall be paid to the holder of any unsurrendered certificate which immediately prior to the Effective Time represented outstanding Molson Shares that were exchanged pursuant to section 2.2, and no cash payment in lieu of fractional shares shall be paid to any such holder pursuant to section 4.4 and no interest shall be earned or payable on these proceeds, unless and until the holder of such certificate shall surrender such certificate in accordance with section 4.1 or 4.2. Subject to applicable law, at the time of such surrender of any such certificate (or, in the case of clause (iii) below, at the appropriate payment date), there shall be paid to the holder of the certificates previously representing Molson Shares, without interest, (i) the amount of any cash payable in lieu of a fractional Exchangeable Share or Preferred Share to which such holder is entitled pursuant to section 4.4, (ii) the amount of dividends or other distributions with a record date after the Effective Time theretofore paid with respect to the Exchangeable Shares or after the Listing Time theretofore paid with respect to Coors Common Stock, as the case may be, to which such holder is entitled pursuant hereto and (iii) on the appropriate payment date, the amount of dividends or other distributions with a record date after

B-12



the Effective Time or after the Listing Time, as the case may be, but prior to surrender and a payment date subsequent to surrender payable with respect to such Exchangeable Shares or Coors Common Stock, as the case may be.

4.4   No Fractional Shares

        No certificates representing fractional Exchangeable Shares, Preferred Shares or shares of Coors Common Stock shall be issued upon the surrender for exchange of certificates pursuant to sections 4.1 or 4.2 and no dividend, stock split or other change in the capital structure of Exchangeco or Coors shall relate to any such fractional security and such fractional interests shall not entitle the owner thereof to exercise any rights as a security holder of Exchangeco or Coors. In lieu of any such fractional securities, each Person otherwise entitled to a fractional interest in an Exchangeable Share, Preferred Share or share of Coors Common Stock will be entitled to receive a cash payment equal to such Person's pro rata portion of the net proceeds after expenses received by the Depositary upon the sale of whole shares representing an accumulation of all fractional interests in Exchangeable Shares, shares of Coors Common Stock, or, in the case of Preferred Shares, shares of Coors Common Stock for which such fractional Preferred Share would otherwise have been exchanged, to which all such Persons would otherwise be entitled. The Depositary will sell such Exchangeable Shares by private sale (including by way sale through the facilities of any stock exchange upon which the Exchangeable Shares are then listed) as soon as reasonably practicable following the Effective Date. The aggregate net proceeds after expenses of such sale will be distributed by the Depositary, pro rata in relation to the respective fractions, among Persons otherwise entitled to receive fractional interests in Exchangeable Shares. The Depositary will sell such shares of Coors Common Stock (or shares of Coors Common Stock for which such fractional Preferred Share would otherwise have been exchanged) on the NYSE as soon as reasonably practicable following the Effective Date. The aggregate net proceeds after expenses of such sale will be distributed by the Depositary, pro rata in relation to the respective fractions, among Persons otherwise entitled to receive fractional interests in shares of Coors Common Stock (or fractional interests in Preferred Shares which would otherwise have been exchanged for shares of Coors Common Stock).

        A holder of an Exchangeable Share shall not be entitled to any fraction of a share of Coors Common Stock upon the exercise by Callco of the Liquidation Call Right or the Redemption Call Right and no certificate representing any such fractional interest shall be issued and such holder otherwise entitled to a fractional interest will receive for such fractional interest from Callco or Coors, as the case may be, on the designated payment date a cash payment equal to such fractional interest multiplied by the Coors Trading Price.

4.5   Lost Certificates

        In the event any certificate which immediately prior to the Effective Time represented one or more outstanding Molson Shares that were exchanged pursuant to section 2.2 shall have been lost, stolen or destroyed, upon the making of an affidavit of that fact by the Person claiming such certificate to be lost, stolen or destroyed, the Depositary will issue in exchange for such lost, stolen or destroyed certificate, any cash pursuant to section 4.4 and/or one or more certificates representing one or more Exchangeable Shares or shares of Coors Common Stock (and any dividends or distributions with respect thereto) deliverable in accordance with such holder's Letter of Transmittal and Election Form. When authorizing such payment in exchange for any lost, stolen or destroyed certificate, the Person to whom certificates representing Exchangeable Shares or shares of Coors Common Stock are to be issued shall, as a condition precedent to the issuance thereof, give a bond satisfactory to Exchangeco, Coors and their respective transfer agents in such sum as Exchangeco or Coors may direct or otherwise indemnify Exchangeco and Coors in a manner satisfactory to Exchangeco and Coors against any claim

B-13



that may be made against Exchangeco or Coors with respect to the certificate alleged to have been lost, stolen or destroyed.

4.6   Extinction of Rights

        Any certificate which immediately prior to the Effective Time represented outstanding Molson Shares that were exchanged pursuant to section 2.2 that is not deposited with all other instruments required by section 4.1 or 4.2 on or prior to the date of the notice referred to in section 7.2 of the Exchangeable Share Provisions shall cease to represent a claim or interest of any kind or nature as a shareholder of Exchangeco or Coors. On such date, the Exchangeable Shares or shares of Coors Common Stock (or cash in lieu of fractional interests therein, as provided in section 4.4) to which the former holder of the certificate referred to in the preceding sentence was ultimately entitled shall be deemed to have been surrendered for no consideration to Exchangeco or Coors, as the case may be, together with all entitlements to dividends, distributions and interest in respect thereof held for such former holder. None of Coors, Exchangeco, Callco or the Depositary shall be liable to any person in respect of any Coors Common Stock or Exchangeable Shares (or dividends, distributions and interest in respect thereof) delivered to a public official pursuant to any applicable abandoned property, escheat or similar law.

4.7   Withholding Rights

        Exchangeco, Callco, Coors and the Depositary shall be entitled to deduct and withhold from any dividend or consideration otherwise payable to any holder of Molson Shares, Preferred Shares, Coors Common Stock or Exchangeable Shares such amounts as Exchangeco, Callco, Coors or the Depositary is (i) required to deduct and withhold with respect to such payment under the ITA, the United States Internal Revenue Code of 1986 or any provision of provincial, state, local or foreign tax law, in each case, as amended or succeeded, or (ii) entitled to deduct and withhold under section 116 of the ITA or any corresponding provisions of provincial law. To the extent that amounts are so withheld, such withheld amounts shall be treated for all purposes as having been paid to the holder of the shares in respect of which such deduction and withholding was made, provided that such withheld amounts are actually remitted to the appropriate taxing authority. To the extent that the amount so required or entitled to be deducted or withheld from any payment to a holder exceeds the cash portion of the consideration otherwise payable to the holder, Exchangeco, Callco, Coors and the Depositary are hereby authorized to sell or otherwise dispose of such portion of the consideration as is necessary to provide sufficient funds to Exchangeco, Callco, Coors or the Depositary, as the case may be, to enable it to comply with such deduction or withholding requirement or entitlement and Exchangeco, Callco, Coors or the Depositary shall notify the holder thereof and remit any unapplied balance of the net proceeds of such sale, provided however that nothing in this section 4.7 shall reduce Exchangeco's obligations under section 6.1(h) of the Combination Agreement or section 3.2 of the Exchangeable Share Provisions. References in this section to the ITA are to the ITA as amended from time to time.

RANKING OF EXCHANGEABLE SHARES

2.1
The Class A Exchangeable Shares and Class B Exchangeable Shares shall rank pari passu and shall be entitled, subject to the prior rights of the holders of any Preferred Shares which by their terms rank senior to the Exchangeable Shares, to a preference over the Common Shares and any other shares ranking junior to the Exchangeable Shares with respect to the distribution of assets in the

The Common Shares, subject to the prior rights of any Preferred Shares which by their terms rank senior to the Common Shares, shall be entitled to a preference over the Exchangeable Shares and any other share ranking junior to the Common Shares with respect to the payment of dividends. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Common Shares do not rank in priority to the Exchangeable Shares with respect to the entitlement to dividends pursuant to Article 3 hereof.

ARTICLE 3
DIVIDENDS

3.1
A holder of a Corresponding Exchangeable Share shall be entitled to receive and the Board of Directors shall, subject to applicable law, on each Coors Dividend Declaration Date, declare a dividend on each Corresponding Exchangeable Share:

(a)
in the case of a cash dividend declared on the Coors Class A Common Stock or Coors Class B Common Stock, in an amount in cash for each Corresponding Exchangeable Share in U.S. dollars, or the Canadian Dollar Equivalent thereof on the Coors Dividend Declaration Date, in each case, corresponding to the cash dividend declared on each share of Coors Class A Common Stock or share of Coors Class B Common Stock, as the case may be;

(b)
in the case of a stock dividend declared on the Coors Class A Common Stock or Coors Class B Common Stock to be paid in Coors Class A Common Stock or Coors Class B Common Stock, by the issue or transfer by the Corporation of such number of Corresponding Exchangeable Shares for each Corresponding Exchangeable Share as is equal to the number of shares of Coors Class A Common Stock or Coors Class B Common Stock to be paid on each share of Coors Class A Common Stock or share of Class B Common Stock as the case may be unless in lieu of such stock dividend the Corporation elects to effect a corresponding and contemporaneous and economically equivalent (as determined by the Board of Directors in accordance with section 3.5 hereof) subdivision of the outstanding Exchangeable Shares; or

(c)
in the case of a dividend declared on the Coors Class A Common Stock or Coors Class B Common Stock in property other than cash or Coors Class A Common Stock or Coors Class B Common Stock, in such type and amount of property for each Corresponding Exchangeable Share as is the same as or economically equivalent to (to be determined by the Board of Directors as contemplated by section 3.6 hereof) the type and amount of property declared as a dividend on each share of Coors Class A Common Stock or share of Coors Class B Common Stock, as the case may be.
3.2
The Corporation covenants that it will pay additional amounts with respect to any dividends paid to a Canadian resident holder of Exchangeable Shares in the event that any withholding taxes other than Canadian Federal or Provincial taxes withheld at source ("non-Canadian withholding taxes") are imposed, directly or indirectly, in respect of such dividends. Such additional amounts shall be determined such that, on an after-tax basis, the Canadian resident holder has received the same amount that it would have received if no non-Canadian withholding taxes had been imposed, taking into account any increased (x) gross income tax imposed directly on such holder by the jurisdiction imposing such non-Canadian withholding taxes, (y) non-Canadian withholding tax and

Cheques of the Corporation payable at par at any branch of the bankers of the Corporation shall be issued in respect of any cash dividends contemplated by section 3.1(a) hereof and the sending of such a cheque to each holder of a Corresponding Exchangeable Share shall satisfy the cash dividend represented thereby unless the cheque is not paid on presentation. Certificates registered in the name of the registered holder of Corresponding Exchangeable Shares shall be issued or transferred in respect of any stock dividends contemplated by section 3.1(b) hereof and the sending of such a certificate to each holder of a Corresponding Exchangeable Share shall satisfy the stock dividend represented thereby. Such other type and amount of property in respect of any dividends contemplated by section 3.1(c) hereof shall be issued, distributed or transferred by the Corporation in such manner as it shall determine and the issuance, distribution or transfer thereof by the Corporation to each holder of a Corresponding Exchangeable Share shall satisfy the dividend represented thereby. No holder of a Corresponding Exchangeable Share shall be entitled to recover by action or other legal process against the Corporation any dividend that is represented by a cheque that has not been duly presented to the Corporation's bankers for payment or that otherwise remains unclaimed for a period of six years from the date on which such dividend was payable.

3.4
The record date for the determination of the holders of Corresponding Exchangeable Shares entitled to receive payment of, and the payment date for, any dividend declared on the Corresponding Exchangeable Shares under section 3.1 hereof shall be the same dates as the record date and payment date, respectively, for the corresponding dividend declared on the Coors Class A Common Stock or Coors Class B Common Stock, as the case may be.

3.5
If on any payment date for any dividends declared on the Corresponding Exchangeable Shares under section 3.1 hereof the dividends are not paid in full on all of the Corresponding Exchangeable Shares then outstanding, any such dividends that remain unpaid shall be paid on a subsequent date or dates determined by the Board of Directors on which the Corporation shall have sufficient moneys, assets or property properly applicable to the payment of such dividends.

ARTICLE 5
DISTRIBUTION ON LIQUIDATION

5.1
In the event of the liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of the Corporation or any other distribution of the assets of the Corporation among its shareholders for the purpose of winding up its affairs, subject to Callco's exercise of the Liquidation Call Right, a holder of Exchangeable Shares shall be entitled, subject to applicable law, to receive from the assets of the Corporation in respect of each Exchangeable Share held by such holder on the effective date (the "Liquidation Date") of such liquidation, dissolution or winding-up, before any distribution of any part of the assets of the Corporation among the holders of the Common Shares or any other shares ranking junior to the Exchangeable Shares, an amount per share (the "Liquidation Amount") equal to the sum of, (i) Current Market Price of a Corresponding Coors Share on the last Business Day prior to the Liquidation Date, which shall be satisfied in full by the Corporation delivering or causing to be delivered to such holder one Corresponding Coors Share, plus (ii) an amount equal to all declared and unpaid dividends on each such Exchangeable Share held by such holder on any dividend record date which occurred prior to the Liquidation Date.

5.2
On or promptly after the Liquidation Date, and subject to the exercise by Callco of the Liquidation Call Right, the Corporation shall deliver or cause to be delivered to the holders of the Exchangeable Shares the Liquidation Amount for each such Exchangeable Share upon presentation and surrender of the certificates representing such Exchangeable Shares, together with such other documents and instruments as may be required to effect a transfer of Exchangeable Shares under the CBCA and the Articles of the Corporation and such additional documents and instruments as the Transfer Agent and the Corporation may reasonably require, at the registered office of the Corporation or at any office of the Transfer Agent as may be specified by the Corporation by notice to the holders of the Exchangeable Shares. Payment of the total Liquidation Amount for such Exchangeable Shares shall be made by delivery to each holder, at the address of the holder recorded in the register of the Corporation for the Exchangeable Shares or by holding for pick-up by the holder at the registered office of the Corporation or at any office of the Transfer Agent as may be specified by the Corporation by notice to the holders of Exchangeable Shares, on behalf of the Corporation of certificates representing Corresponding Coors Shares (which shares shall be duly issued as fully paid and non-assessable and shall be free and clear of any lien, claim or encumbrance) and a cheque of the Corporation payable at par at any branch of the bankers of the Corporation in respect of the remaining portion, if any, of the total Liquidation Amount (in each case less any amounts withheld on account of tax pursuant to Article 13 hereof). On and after the Liquidation Date, the holders of the Exchangeable Shares shall cease to be holders of such Exchangeable Shares and shall not be entitled to exercise any of the rights of holders in respect thereof, other than the right to receive their proportionate part of the total Liquidation Amount, unless payment of the total Liquidation Amount for such Exchangeable Shares shall not be made upon presentation and surrender of share certificates in accordance with

B-I-9


5.3
After the Corporation has satisfied its obligations to pay the holders of the Exchangeable Shares the Liquidation Amount per Exchangeable Share pursuant to section 5.1 of these share provisions, such holders shall not be entitled to share in any further distribution of the assets of the Corporation.

5.4
Callco shall have the overriding right (the "Liquidation Call Right"), in the event of and notwithstanding the proposed liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of the Corporation pursuant to section 5.1 of these share provisions to purchase from all but not less than all of the holders of Exchangeable Shares (other than any holder of Exchangeable Shares which is Coors or an Affiliate of Coors) on the Liquidation Date all but not less than all of the Exchangeable Shares held by each such holder on payment by Callco of an amount per share (the "Liquidation Call Purchase Price") equal to the sum of, (i) the Current Market Price of a share of Corresponding Coors Common Stock on the last Business Day prior to the Liquidation Date, which shall be satisfied in full by Callco causing to be delivered for each such Exchangeable Share to such holder one share of Corresponding Coors Common Stock, plus (ii) any Dividend Amount. In the event of the exercise of the Liquidation Call Right by Callco, each holder shall be obligated to sell all the Exchangeable Shares held by the holder to Callco on the Liquidation Date on payment by Callco to the holder of the Liquidation Call Purchase Price for each such share, and the Corporation shall have no obligation to pay any Liquidation Amount to the holders of such shares so purchased by Callco.

5.5
To exercise the Liquidation Call Right, Callco must notify the Transfer Agent as agent for the holders of Exchangeable Shares and the Corporation of Callco's intention to exercise such right at least 60 days before the Liquidation Date in the case of a voluntary liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of the Corporation and at least five Business Days before the Liquidation Date in the case of an involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of the Corporation. The Transfer Agent will notify the holders of Exchangeable Shares as to whether or not Callco has exercised the Liquidation Call Right forthwith after the expiry of the period during which the same may be exercised by Callco. If Callco exercises the Liquidation Call Right, then on the Liquidation Date Callco will purchase and the holders will sell all of the Exchangeable Shares then outstanding for a price per share equal to the Liquidation Call Purchase Price.

6.2
Subject to the exercise by Callco of the Retraction Call Right, upon receipt by the Corporation or the Transfer Agent in the manner specified in section 6.1 hereof of a certificate or certificates representing the number of Retracted Shares, together with a Retraction Request, and provided that the Retraction Request is not revoked by the holder in the manner specified in section 6.7, the Corporation shall redeem the Retracted Shares effective at the close of business on the Retraction Date and shall deliver or cause to be delivered to such holder the total Retraction Price. If only a part of the Exchangeable Shares represented by any certificate is redeemed (or purchased by Callco pursuant to the Retraction Call Right), a new certificate for the balance of such Exchangeable Shares shall be issued to the holder at the expense of the Corporation.

6.3
Upon receipt by the Corporation of a Retraction Request, the Corporation shall immediately notify Callco thereof and shall provide to Callco a copy of the Retraction Request. In order to exercise the Retraction Call Right, Callco must notify the Corporation of its determination to do so (the "Callco Call Notice") within five Business Days of notification to Callco by the Corporation of the receipt by the Corporation of the Retraction Request. If Callco does not so notify the Corporation within such five Business Day period, the Corporation will notify the holder as soon as possible thereafter that Callco will not exercise the Retraction Call Right. If Callco delivers the Callco Call Notice within such five Business Day period, and provided that the Retraction Request is not revoked by the holder in the manner specified in section 6.7, the Retraction Request shall thereupon be considered only to be an offer by the holder to sell the Retracted Shares to Callco in accordance with the Retraction Call Right. In such event, the Corporation shall not redeem the Retracted Shares and Callco shall purchase from such holder and such holder shall sell to Callco on the Retraction Date the Retracted Shares for a purchase price (the "Purchase Price") per share equal to the sum of, (i) the Retraction Price per share, plus

6.5
On and after the close of business on the Retraction Date, the holder of the Retracted Shares shall cease to be a holder of such Retracted Shares and shall not be entitled to exercise any of the rights of a holder in respect thereof, other than the right to receive his proportionate part of the total Retraction Price or total Purchase Price, as the case may be, unless upon presentation and surrender of certificates in accordance with the foregoing provisions, payment of the total Retraction Price or the total Purchase Price, as the case may be, shall not be made as provided in section 6.4, in which case the rights of such holder shall remain unaffected until the total Retraction Price or the total Purchase Price, as the case may be, has been paid in the manner hereinbefore provided. On and after the close of business on the Retraction Date, provided that presentation and surrender of certificates and payment of the total Retraction Price or the total Purchase Price, as the case may be, has been made in accordance with the foregoing provisions, the holder of the Retracted Shares so redeemed by the Corporation or purchased by Callco shall thereafter be considered and deemed for all purposes to be a holder of the Corresponding Coors Common Stock delivered to it.

6.6
Notwithstanding any other provision of this Article 6, the Corporation shall not be obligated to redeem Retracted Shares specified by a holder in a Retraction Request to the extent that such redemption of Retracted Shares would be contrary to solvency requirements or other provisions of applicable law. If the Corporation believes that on any Retraction Date it would not be permitted by any of such provisions to redeem the Retracted Shares tendered for redemption on such date,

A holder of Retracted Shares may, by notice in writing given by the holder to the Corporation before the close of business on the Business Day immediately preceding the Retraction Date, withdraw its Retraction Request, in which event such Retraction Request shall be null and void and, for greater certainty, the revocable offer constituted by the Retraction Request to sell the Retracted Shares to Callco shall be deemed to have been revoked.

ARTICLE 18
CONVERSION OF CLASS A EXCHANGEABLE SHARES

18.1
Subject to and in compliance with the provisions of this Article 18, each holder of shares of Class A Exchangeable Shares may, at any time and from time to time, at such holder's election, convert any or all outstanding shares of Class A Exchangeable Shares held by such holder into shares of Class B Exchangeable Shares (any such conversion, a "Conversion") pursuant to the provisions of this section 18.1. In order to effect a Conversion, a holder of shares of Class A Exchangeable Shares must deliver at any office of the Transfer Agent as may be specified by the Corporation by notice to the holders of the Class A Exchangeable Shares (i) a written notice of such holder's election to convert (a "Notice of Conversion") shares of Class A Exchangeable Shares specifying the number of shares to be converted and (ii) the certificate or certificates representing such shares. Such Notice of Conversion, once delivered to the Transfer Agent, shall be irrevocable. As promptly as practicable after receipt by the Transfer Agent of such Notice of Conversion and such certificate or certificates, the Transfer Agent shall on behalf of the Corporation issue and shall deliver to such holder a certificate or certificates for the number of shares of Class B Exchangeable Shares issuable upon such Conversion in accordance with the provisions of this Article 18. In the event of a Conversion of a certificate or certificates in part, the Transfer Agent shall also issue on behalf of the Corporation to such holder a certificate or certificates for the number of shares of Class A Exchangeable Shares not being so converted. A Conversion shall be deemed to have been consummated immediately prior to the close of business on the date the Transfer Agent receives the Notice of Conversion of the holder of Class A Common Shares electing to make such Conversion (the "Conversion Date"), or if the Conversion Date is not a business day, then the next business day, and as of such date such holder shall be deemed to be a holder of record of the number of shares of Class B Exchangeable Shares issuable upon such Conversion in accordance with this Article 18 notwithstanding that the share register of the Corporation may then be closed or that a certificate or certificates representing such shares of Class B Exchangeable Shares shall not then actually be issued or delivered to such holder.

18.2
Upon any Conversion the holder of shares of Class A Exchangeable Shares being converted shall receive a number of shares of Class B Exchangeable Shares equal to the product of the number of shares of Class A Exchangeable Shares being converted and the Conversion Ratio then in effect. The Conversion Ratio shall initially be one (1), and shall in all events be equitably adjusted in the event of any recapitalization of the Corporation by means of a stock dividend on, or a stock split or combination of, outstanding Class A Exchangeable Shares or Class B Exchangeable Shares, or in the event of any merger, consolidation or other reorganization of the Corporation with another corporation.

18.3
Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, prior to the delivery of any shares of Class B Exchangeable Shares that the Transfer Agent is obligated to deliver on behalf of the Corporation pursuant to any Conversion, the Transfer Agent and the Corporation shall comply with all applicable federal and provincial laws and regulations which require action to be taken by the Transfer Agent and the Corporation in connection with such Conversion.

18.4
Upon the conversion of any shares of Class A Exchangeable Shares into shares of Class B Exchangeable Shares pursuant to this Article 18, such Class A Exchangeable Shares shall be cancelled.

C-13


Transferee"); provided, that prior to such Transfer such Trust Shares are converted as permitted pursuant to Article Sixth of the Company's Certificate of Incorporation so that the Third Party Transferee receives only shares of Class B Common Stock. Such conversion and Transfer shall be effected by the transferring Beneficiary's Beneficiary Representative causing the Trustee, in accordance with Section 3.05, to take such actions as are required by such section to effect such conversion and Transfer and to release such Trust Shares (and the shares of Class B Common Stock issued upon conversion thereof) from the Trust created hereby, whereupon such shares shall no longer be subject to this Agreement. Following such Transfer, this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect with respect to all other Trust Shares not subject to such Transfer. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement (including this Section 8.02), each Molson Family Group Beneficiary agrees that it shall not be permitted to make a Transfer of its beneficial interests in Trust Shares under this Section 8.02 nor convert any Trust Shares to Class B Common Stock if, giving effect to such Transfer or the requisite conversion, the remaining Trust Shares, together with any Class A Exchangeable Shares subject to the Canadian Voting Trust Agreement (and associated rights), would constitute in the aggregate less than 50.1% of the aggregate voting power of all then-outstanding Class A Common Stock and Class A Exchangeable Shares (and associated rights) unless, at any time prior to such Transfer or conversion, the number of Trust Shares of the Coors Family Group Beneficiaries is less than the number (as adjusted by any stock split, recapitalization, reclassification, reorganization or similar transactions of Trust Shares initially deposited by the Coors Holder on the date hereof as a result of one or more Transfers (and associated conversion into Class B Common Stock) of Trust Shares to a Third Party Transferee.


        Section 8.03.    Agreement Not to Cause Conversion Right.     The Beneficiaries agree that, notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, (i) no Beneficiary shall be permitted to make any sale, transfer or other disposition of any beneficial interest in any Trust Shares if, as a result thereof, any shares of Class B Common Stock of the Company shall become convertible into Shares pursuant to the provisions of Article Fifth of the Company's Restated Certificate of Incorporation, (ii) in no event shall any Transfer be made or offer deemed made pursuant to Section 8.02 if such Transfer or offer or an acceptance of such offer would constitute or require an "Exclusionary Offer" (as defined in Article Fifth of the Company's Restated Certificate of Incorporation), (iii) unless otherwise expressly instructed in writing unanimously by each of the Beneficiary Representatives in connection with the occurrence of an "Exclusionary Offer" (as defined in Article Fifth of the Company's Restated Certificate of Incorporation), the Trustee is hereby specifically empowered and directed to deliver any and all certificates and other documents pursuant to such Article Fifth as may be necessary or advisable to prevent the Class B Common Stock from becoming convertible into Shares pursuant to such Article Fifth and (iv) no Beneficiary shall be permitted to take any actions contrary to any certificate that has been delivered to the Company pursuant to paragraph (e)(1) of Article Fifth of the Company's Restated Certificate of Incorporation (a "Blocking Certificate") or that would cause any Blocking Certificate to be untrue or invalid.

        The certificates representing the Coors Special Voting Shares shall at all times be held in safe keeping by the Trustee.

ARTICLE 4
EXERCISE OF VOTING RIGHTS

4.1   Voting Rights

        The Trustee, as the holder of record of the Coors Special Voting Shares, shall be entitled to all of the Voting Rights, including the right to vote in person or by proxy the Coors Special Voting Shares on any matters, questions, proposals or propositions whatsoever that may properly come before the shareholders of Coors at a Coors Meeting or in connection with a Coors Consent. The Voting Rights shall be and remain vested in and exercised by the Trustee. Subject to section 7.15:

4.2   Number of Votes

        With respect to all meetings of shareholders of Coors at which holders of Coors Common Stock are entitled to vote (each, a "Coors Meeting") and with respect to all written consents sought by Coors from its shareholders including the holders of Coors Common Stock (each, a "Coors Consent"), each Beneficiary shall be entitled to instruct the Trustee to cast and exercise that number of votes comprised in the Voting Rights for each Coors Special Voting Share which is equal to that number of votes which would attach to the shares of Coors Common Stock receivable upon the exchange of the Exchangeable Shares (i) corresponding to such Coors Special Voting Share and (ii) owned of record by such Beneficiary on the record date established by Coors or by applicable law for such Coors Meeting or Coors Consent, as the case may be (the "Beneficiary Votes"), in respect of each matter, question, proposal or proposition to be voted on at such Coors Meeting or in connection with such Coors Consent. For greater certainty, in the case of a class vote in one class of Coors Common Stock, the Trustee shall only exercise Voting Rights with respect to the Coors Special Voting Share corresponding

E-7



to such class of Coors Common Stock, and each Beneficiary holding any Corresponding Exchangeable Shares shall be entitled to instruct the Trustee to cast and exercise on such class vote that number of votes comprised in the Voting Rights which is equal to that number of votes which would attach to the shares of Coors Common Stock into which such Beneficiary's Corresponding Exchangeable Shares are then exchangeable for.

4.3   Mailings to Shareholders

        With respect to each Coors Meeting and Coors Consent, the Trustee will use its reasonable efforts promptly to mail or cause to be mailed (or otherwise communicate in the same manner as Coors utilizes in communications to holders of Coors Class A Common Stock or Coors Class B Common Stock subject to applicable regulatory requirements and provided such manner of communications is reasonably available to the Trustee) to each of the Beneficiaries of the Corresponding Exchangeable Shares named in the List referred to in section 4.6, such mailing or communication to commence on the same day as the mailing or notice (or other communication) with respect thereto is commenced by Coors to its shareholders:

        The materials referred to in this section 4.3 are to be provided to the Trustee by Coors and the materials referred to in sections 4.3(c), 4.3(e) and 4.3(f) shall be subject to reasonable comment by the Trustee in a timely manner. Coors shall ensure that the materials to be provided to the Trustee are provided in sufficient time to permit the Trustee to comment as aforesaid and to send all materials to each Beneficiary at the same time as such materials are first sent to holders of Coors Common Stock. Coors agrees not to communicate with holders of Coors Common Stock with respect to the materials referred to in this section 4.3 otherwise than by mail unless such method of communication is also reasonably available to the Trustee for communication with the Beneficiaries.

        For the purpose of determining Beneficiary Votes to which a Beneficiary is entitled in respect of any Coors Meeting or Coors Consent, the number of Exchangeable Shares owned of record by the

E-8



Beneficiary shall be determined at the close of business on the record date established by Coors or by applicable law for purposes of determining shareholders entitled to vote at such Coors Meeting.

4.4   Copies of Shareholder Information

        Coors will deliver to the Trustee copies of all proxy materials (including notices of Coors Meetings but excluding proxies to vote Coors Common Stock), information statements, reports (including without limitation, all interim and annual financial statements) and other written communications that, in each case, are to be distributed from time to time to holders of Coors Common Stock in sufficient quantities and in sufficient time so as to enable the Trustee to send those materials to each Beneficiary at the same time as such materials are first sent to holders of Coors Common Stock. The Trustee will mail or otherwise send to each Beneficiary, at the expense of Coors, copies of all such materials (and all materials specifically directed to the Beneficiaries or to the Trustee for the benefit of the Beneficiaries by Coors) received by the Trustee from Coors contemporaneously with the sending of such materials to holders of Coors Common Stock.

Each such List shall be delivered to the Trustee promptly after receipt by Exchangeco of such request or the record date for such meeting or seeking of consent, as the case may be, and in any event within sufficient time as to permit the Trustee to perform its obligations under this Agreement.

E-11

EXCHANGE RIGHT AND AUTOMATIC EXCHANGE

5.1   Grant and Exercise of the Exchange Right

        Coors hereby grants to the Trustee as trustee for and on behalf of, and for the use and benefit of, the Beneficiaries the right (the "Exchange Right"), upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Insolvency Event, to require Coors to purchase from each or any Beneficiary all or any part of the Exchangeable Shares held by the Beneficiary and the Automatic Exchange Rights, all in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement. Coors hereby acknowledges receipt from the Trustee as trustee for and on behalf of the Beneficiaries of good and valuable consideration (and the adequacy thereof) for the grant of the Exchange Right and the Automatic Exchange Rights by Coors to the Trustee. During the term of the Trust and subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Trustee shall possess and be vested with all rights in respect of the Exchange Right and the Automatic Exchange Rights and shall be entitled to exercise all of the rights and powers of an owner with respect to the Exchange Right and the Automatic Exchange Rights, provided that the Trustee shall:

5.3   General Exercise of Exchange Right

Subject to section 7.15, the Trustee shall exercise the Exchange Right only on the basis of instructions received pursuant to this Article 5 from Beneficiaries entitled to instruct the Trustee as to the exercise thereof. To the extent that no instructions are received from a Beneficiary with respect to the Exchange Right, the Trustee shall not exercise or permit the exercise of the Exchange Right.

5.4   Purchase Price

        The purchase price payable by Coors for each Exchangeable Share to be purchased by Coors under the Exchange Right shall be an amount per share equal to (a) the Current Market Price of a share of Corresponding Coors Common Stock on the last Business Day prior to the day of closing of

E-12



the purchase and sale of such Exchangeable Share under the Exchange Right, which shall be satisfied in full by Coors sending or causing to be sent to the Trustee on behalf of such holder one share of Corresponding Coors Common Stock, plus (b) to the extent not paid by Exchangeco on the designated payment date therefor, an additional amount equal to and in satisfaction of the full amount of all declared and unpaid dividends on each such Exchangeable Share held by such holder on any dividend record date which occurred prior to the closing of the purchase and sale. In connection with each exercise of the Exchange Right, Coors shall provide to the Trustee an Officer's Certificate setting forth the calculation of the purchase price for each Exchangeable Share. The purchase price for each such Exchangeable Share so purchased may be satisfied only by Coors issuing and delivering or causing to be delivered to the Trustee, on behalf of the relevant Beneficiary, one share of Coors Common Stock and on the applicable payment date a cheque for the balance, if any, of the purchase price without interest (less any amounts withheld pursuant to section 5.13). Upon payment by Coors of such purchase price, the relevant Beneficiary shall cease to have any right to be paid any amount in respect of declared and unpaid dividends on each such Exchangeable Share by Exchangeco.

5.5   Exercise Instructions

        Subject to the terms and conditions herein set forth, a Beneficiary shall be entitled, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Insolvency Event, to instruct the Trustee to exercise the Exchange Right with respect to all or any part of the Exchangeable Shares registered in the name of such Beneficiary on the books of Exchangeco. To cause the exercise of the Exchange Right by the Trustee, the Beneficiary shall deliver to the Trustee, in person or by certified or registered mail, at its principal office in [Montreal] or at such other places in Canada as the Trustee may from time to time designate by written notice to the Beneficiaries, the certificates representing the Exchangeable Shares which such Beneficiary desires Coors to purchase, duly endorsed in blank for transfer, and accompanied by such other documents and instruments as may be required to effect a transfer of Exchangeable Shares under the Act and the by-laws of Exchangeco and such additional documents and instruments as the Trustee, Exchangeco and Coors may reasonably require together with (a) a duly completed form of notice of exercise of the Exchange Right, contained on the reverse of or attached to the Exchangeable Share certificates, stating (i) that the Beneficiary thereby instructs the Trustee to exercise the Exchange Right so as to require Coors to purchase from the Beneficiary the number of Exchangeable Shares specified therein, (ii) that such Beneficiary has good title to and owns all such Exchangeable Shares to be acquired by Coors free and clear of all liens, hypothecs, claims and encumbrances, (iii) the names in which the certificates representing Shares of Coors Common Stock issuable in connection with the exercise of the Exchange Right are to be issued and (iv) the names and addresses of the persons to whom such new certificates should be delivered and (b) payment (or evidence satisfactory to the Trustee, Exchangeco and Coors of payment) of the taxes (if any) payable as contemplated by section 5.8 of this Agreement. If only a part of the Exchangeable Shares represented by any certificate or certificates delivered to the Trustee are to be purchased by Coors under the Exchange Right, a new certificate for the balance of such Exchangeable Shares shall be issued to the holder at the expense of Exchangeco.

5.6   Delivery of Coors Common Stock; Effect of Exercise

        Promptly after the receipt of the certificates representing the Exchangeable Shares which the Beneficiary desires Coors to purchase under the Exchange Right, together with such documents and instruments of transfer and a duly completed form of notice of exercise of the Exchange Right (and payment of taxes, if any payable as contemplated by section 5.8 or evidence thereof), duly endorsed for transfer to Coors, the Trustee shall notify Coors and Exchangeco of its receipt of the same, which notice to Coors and Exchangeco shall constitute exercise of the Exchange Right by the Trustee on behalf of the holder of such Exchangeable Shares, and Coors shall promptly thereafter deliver or cause to be delivered to the Trustee, for delivery to the Beneficiary of such Exchangeable Shares (or to such

E-13



other persons, if any, properly designated by such Beneficiary) the number of shares of Corresponding Coors Common Stock issuable in connection with the exercise of the Exchange Right, and on the applicable payment date cheques for the balance, if any, of the total purchase price therefor without interest (less any amounts withheld pursuant to section 5.13); provided, however, that no such delivery shall be made unless and until the Beneficiary requesting the same shall have paid (or provided evidence satisfactory to the Trustee, Exchangeco and Coors of the payment of) the taxes (if any) payable as contemplated by section 5.8 of this Agreement. Immediately upon the giving of notice by the Trustee to Coors and Exchangeco of the exercise of the Exchange Right as provided in this section 5.6, the closing of the transaction of purchase and sale contemplated by the Exchange Right shall be deemed to have occurred and the holder of such Exchangeable Shares shall be deemed to have transferred to Coors all of such holder's right, title and interest in and to such Exchangeable Shares and the related interest in the Trust Estate free and clear of any lien, hypothec, claim or encumbrance and shall cease to be a holder of such Exchangeable Shares and shall not be entitled to exercise any of the rights of a holder in respect thereof, other than the right to receive his proportionate part of the total purchase price therefor, unless the requisite number of shares of Corresponding Coors Common Stock is not allotted, issued and delivered by Coors to the Trustee within five Business Days of the date of the giving of such notice by the Trustee or the balance of the purchase price, if any, is not paid by Coors on the applicable payment date therefor, in which case the rights of the Beneficiary shall remain unaffected until such shares of Corresponding Coors Common Stock are so allotted, issued and delivered, and the balance of the purchase price, if any, has been paid, by Coors.

In any such event, Exchangeco hereby agrees with the Trustee and in favour of the Beneficiary promptly to forward or cause to be forwarded to the Trustee all relevant materials delivered by the Beneficiary to Exchangeco or to the transfer agent of the Exchangeable Shares (including without limitation, a copy of the retraction request delivered pursuant to section 6.1 of the Exchangeable Share Provisions) in connection with such proposed redemption of the Retracted Shares and the Trustee will thereupon exercise the Exchange Right with respect to the Retracted Shares that Exchangeco is not permitted to redeem and will require Coors to purchase such shares in accordance with the provisions of this Article 5.

To the extent that the amount so required or entitled to be deducted or withheld from any payment to a holder exceeds the cash portion of the consideration otherwise payable to the holder, Coors, Exchangeco and the Trustee are hereby authorized to sell or otherwise dispose of such portion of the consideration as is necessary to provide sufficient funds to Coors, Exchangeco or the Trustee, as the case may be, to enable it to comply with such deduction or withholding requirement or entitlement and Coors, Exchangeco or the Trustee shall notify the holder thereof and remit to such holder any unapplied balance of the net proceeds of such sale; provided however that nothing in this section 5.13 shall reduce Exchangeco's obligations under section 6.1 (h) of the Combination Agreement or section 3.2 of the Exchangeable Share Provisions.

        The [Shareholder] and the Vendors, on a solidary basis, agree to indemnify and save harmless Molson, Coors, Callco, Exchangeco and HoldCo-2 (and their directors and officers, employees, advisors and agents) from all actions, claims, demands, processes, proceedings, losses, damages, liabilities, deficiencies, Taxes (whether or not such Taxes have been assessed or reassessed as at the date hereof), and any instalments with respect thereto, costs and expenses (including, without limitation, all legal and other professional fees and disbursements, interest, penalties and amounts paid in settlement) (collectively "Liabilities") whether resulting from a breach of contract, by the commission of a fault or otherwise suffered or incurred by Molson, Coors, Callco, Exchangeco or HoldCo-2 (and their directors, officers, employees and agents), the whole to be computed on an after-tax basis, as a result of or arising directly or indirectly out of or in connection with:


Molson agrees to indemnify and save harmless the Vendors (and its directors or officers, employees and agents) as a result of or arising directly or indirectly out of or in connection with any breach by Molson of any representation, warranty, obligation or covenant of Molson contained in this Agreement.

6.2    Notice of Claim    

        In the event that a party to this Agreement (the "Indemnified Party") shall become aware of any claim, proceeding or other matter (a "Claim") in respect of which another party to this Agreement (the "Indemnifying Party") agreed to indemnify the Indemnified Party pursuant to this Agreement, the Indemnified Party shall promptly give written notice thereof to the Indemnifying Party. Such notice shall specify whether the Claim arises as a result of a claim by a person against the Indemnified Party (a "Third Party Claim") or whether the Claim does not so arise (a "Direct Claim"), and shall also specify with reasonable particularity (to the extent that the information is available) the factual basis for the Claim and the amount of the Claim, if known. If, through the gross negligence or wilful misconduct of the Indemnified Party, the Indemnifying Party does not receive notice of any Claim in time to contest effectively the determination of any liability susceptible of being contested, the

F-14



Indemnifying Party shall be entitled to set off against the amount claimed by the Indemnified Party the amount of any Liabilities incurred by the Indemnifying Party resulting from the Indemnified Party's failure to give such notice on a timely basis.

6.3    Direct Claims    

        With respect to any Direct Claim, following receipt of notice from the Indemnified Party of the Claim, the Indemnifying Party shall have 30 days to make such investigation of the Claim as is considered necessary or desirable. For the purpose of such investigation, the Indemnified Party shall make available to the Indemnifying Party the information relied upon by the Indemnified Party to substantiate the Claim, together with all such other information as the Indemnifying Party may reasonably request. If both parties agree at or prior to the expiration of such 30-day period (or any mutually agreed upon extension thereof) to the validity and amount of such Claim, the Indemnifying Party shall immediately pay to the Indemnified Party the full agreed upon amount of the Claim.

6.4    Third Party Claims    

        With respect to any Third Party Claim, the Indemnified Party shall have the exclusive right, at the expense of the Indemnifying Party, to contest, settle or pay the amount claimed and to retain counsel and other experts or advisors selected by the Indemnified Party in its sole discretion in connection therewith; provided, however, that the Indemnified Party shall not settle any Third Party Claim without the written consent of the Indemnifying Party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed; provided, however, that the Indemnifying Party shall remain liable for the settlement amount even if any such consent is not obtained for any reason. If the Indemnified Party elects to assume such control, the Indemnifying Party shall have the right, at its sole expense, to participate in the negotiation, settlement or defence of such Third Party Claim. If any Third Party Claim is of a nature such that the Indemnified Party is required by applicable law to make a payment to any person (a "Third Party") with respect to the Third Party Claim before the completion of settlement negotiations or related legal proceedings, the Indemnified Party may make such payment and the Indemnifying Party shall, forthwith after demand by the Indemnified Party, reimburse the Indemnified Party for such payment. If the amount of any liability of the indemnified Party under the Third Party Claim in respect of which such payment was made, as finally determined, is less than the amount that was paid by the Indemnifying Party to the Indemnified Party, the Indemnified Party shall, forthwith after receipt of the difference from the Third Party, pay the amount of such difference to the Indemnifying Party.

6.5    Reduction, Set-off, Payment and Co-operation    

        The Indemnifying Party shall pay to the Indemnified Party all amounts for which the Indemnifying Party is liable pursuant to this Section 6 promptly after the Indemnified Party incurs the Liability in respect of which such liability arises. If such amount is not so paid, the Indemnified Party may deduct or set-off such amount from any obligation it may have to the Indemnifying Party. The Indemnified Party and the Indemnifying Party shall co-operate fully with each other with respect to Third Party Claims, and shall keep each other fully advised with respect thereto (including supplying copies of all relevant documentation promptly as it becomes available).

RESTATED CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION
OF
MOLSON COORS BREWING COMPANY

(A Delaware Corporation)

        The undersigned, being the Chief Legal Officer of Adolph Coors Company (the "Corporation"), a corporation organized and existing under the laws of the State of Delaware, hereby certifies as follows:

        FIRST.    The name of the corporation is Molson Coors Brewing Company (the "Corporation").

        SECOND.    The address of the Corporation's registered office in the State of Delaware is 2711 Centerville Road, Suite 400, Wilmington, New Castle County, Delaware, 19808. The name of its registered agent at such address is Corporation Service Company.

        THIRD.    The purpose of the Corporation is to engage in any lawful act or activity for which corporations may be organized under the DGCL.

        (a)   The total number of shares of all classes of stock which the Corporation shall have authority to issue is 325,000,002, to be divided into five (5) classes, of which 150,000,000 shares, par value of $0.01 (voting), shall be designated as Class A Common Stock ("Class A Common Stock"); one (1) share, par value of $0.01 (voting), shall be designated as Special Class A Voting Stock ("Special Class A Voting Stock"); 150,000,000 shares, par value of $0.01 (non-voting), shall be designated as Class B Common Stock ("Class B Common Stock" and, together with the Class A Common Stock, "Common Stock"); one (1) share, par value of $0.01 (non-voting) shall be designated as Special Class B Voting Stock ("Special Class B Voting Stock"); and twenty-five million (25,000,000) shares, par value of $0.01, shall be designated as Preferred Stock ("Preferred Stock").

        (b)   The relative rights, privileges and limitations of the shares of each class of Common Stock are as follows:

G-1


G-2


G-3


G-4


        (c)   Shares of Preferred Stock may be issued in one or more series from time to time by the Board of Directors, and the Board of Directors is expressly authorized to fix by resolution or resolutions for the issuance of shares of Preferred Stock in one or more series and, by filing a certificate pursuant to the DGCL (a "Preferred Stock Designation"), setting forth such resolution, to establish by resolution from time to time the number of shares to be included in each such series, and to fix by resolution the designations and the powers, preferences and rights, and the qualifications, limitations and restrictions thereof, of the shares of each series of Preferred Stock.

        The authority of the Board of Directors with respect to each series shall include, but not be limited to, determination of the following:

G-5


        The Board of Directors is expressly authorized to vary the provisions relating to the foregoing matters between the various series of Preferred Stock, but, unless otherwise specified in a Preferred Stock Designation, in all other respects the shares of each series shall be of equal rank with each other regardless of series. Notwithstanding the fixing of the number of shares constituting a particular series upon the issuance thereof, unless otherwise specified in the Preferred Stock Designation and subject to the rights of the holders of any series of Preferred Stock, the Board of Directors may at any time thereafter authorize the issuance of additional shares of the same series or may reduce (but not below the number of shares thereof then outstanding) the number of shares constituting such series.

        (d)   The number of authorized shares of any class of stock of the Corporation may be increased or decreased (but not below the number of shares thereof then outstanding) by the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the voting power of the Class A Holders, irrespective of Section 242(b)(2) of the DGCL, without a separate class vote of the class to be increased or decreased; provided, however, that this provision shall not affect the requirement of any vote required pursuant to subparagraph (6) of paragraph (b) of the this Article Fourth or any Preferred Stock Designation.

        (e)   As used in this Article Fifth, the following terms have the following meanings:

G-6


G-7


        (f)    Subject to paragraph (e) of this Article Fifth, if an Exclusionary Offer is made, each outstanding share of Class B Common Stock shall be convertible into one (1) fully paid and non-assessable share of Class A Common Stock at the option of the holder thereof during the Conversion Period. The conversion right provided for in this paragraph (b) shall be exercised by notice in writing given to the transfer agent accompanied by the stock certificate or certificates representing the shares of Class B Common Stock which the holder desires to convert, and such notice shall be executed by the person registered on the books of the Corporation as the holder of the shares of Class B Common Stock, or by his or her attorney duly authorized in writing, and shall specify the number of shares of Class B Common Stock which the holder desires to have converted. The holder shall pay any governmental or other tax imposed on or in respect of such conversion. Upon receipt by the transfer agent of such notice and stock certificate or certificates, the Corporation shall issue or cause to be issued a stock certificate representing fully-paid shares of Class A Common Stock as prescribed above and in accordance with paragraph (d) of this Article Fifth. If less than all of the shares of Class B Common Stock represented by any stock certificate are to be converted, the holder shall be entitled to receive a new stock certificate representing in the aggregate the number of shares of Class B Common Stock represented by the original stock certificate that are not to be converted.

        (g)   An election by a holder of shares of Class B Common Stock to exercise the conversion right provided for in paragraph (b) of this Article Fifth shall not be valid unless accompanied by irrevocable elections by such holder (i) to tender the Converted Shares into the Exclusionary Offer (subject to such holder's right to subsequently withdraw the shares from the offer in accordance with the terms thereof and applicable law); (ii) to exercise the right contained in the terms and conditions of the Converted Shares to convert into shares of Class B Common Stock all Converted Shares in respect of which such holder exercises his or her right of withdrawal from the Exclusionary Offer or which are not otherwise ultimately purchased under the Exclusionary Offer; and (iii) to appoint the transfer agent as agent of such holder for the purpose of holding and tendering certificates representing such Converted Shares in accordance with paragraph (d) of this Article Fifth. Any such election shall provide that the conversion of Converted Shares into shares of Class B Common Stock pursuant to such election in respect of which the holder exercises his or her right of withdrawal from the Exclusionary Offer shall become effective at the time such right of withdrawal is exercised, and that if the right of withdrawal is not exercised, any conversion into shares of Class B Common Stock pursuant to such election shall become effective:

        (h)   No stock certificates representing Converted Shares or Exchangeable Converted Shares shall be delivered to or to the order of the holders of the shares before such shares are tendered into the Exclusionary Offer; the transfer agent, on behalf of the holders of the Converted Shares or Exchangeable Converted Shares, shall tender pursuant to the Exclusionary Offer a certificate or certificates representing the Converted Shares or Exchangeable Converted Shares. Upon completion of the Exclusionary Offer, the transfer agent shall deliver or cause to be delivered to the holders entitled thereto all consideration paid by the Offeror pursuant to the Exclusionary Offer in respect of the Converted Shares or Exchangeable Converted Shares. If Converted Shares or Exchangeable Converted Shares are converted into shares of Class B Common Stock in accordance with the election required by paragraph (c) of this Article Fifth or Section 16.3 of the Exchangeable Share Provisions, the transfer agent shall deliver to the holders entitled thereto a stock certificate or certificates representing the shares of Class B Common Stock resulting from the conversion.

        (j)    If a notice referred to in clause (e)(1)(i), (e)(1)(iv), (e)(2)(iii) or (e)(2)(iv) is given and the conversion right provided for in paragraph (b) of this Article Fifth has not come into effect, the transfer agent shall either forthwith upon receipt of the notice or forthwith after the seventh (7th) day following the Offer Date, whichever is later, determine the number of shares of Class A Common Stock and Exchangeable Class A Shares in respect of which certificates have been delivered that comply with either subparagraph (e)(1) or (e)(2). For the purpose of this determination, (i) certificates in respect of which such a notice has been filed shall not be regarded as delivered insofar as the shares of Class A Common Stock or Exchangeable Class A Shares to which the notice relates are concerned; (ii) the transfer that is the subject of any notice referred to in clause (e)(1)(iv) or (e)(2)(iv) shall be deemed to have already taken place at the time of the determination; and (iii) the transferee in the case of any notice referred to in clause (e)(1)(iv) or (e)(2)(iv) shall be deemed to be a person or company from whom the transfer agent does not have a certificate unless the transfer agent is otherwise advised of the identity of the transferee, either by such notice or by the transferee in writing, and such transferee is a person or company from whom the transfer agent has received delivery of a certificate. If the number of shares of Class A Common Stock and Exchangeable Class A Shares so determined to be subject to certificates delivered pursuant to subparagraph (e)(1) or (e)(2) does not exceed fifty percent (50%) of the number of then outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock and Exchangeable Class A Shares, exclusive of shares owned immediately prior to the Offer Date by the Offeror, paragraph (e) of this Article Fifth shall cease to apply and the conversion right provided for in paragraph (b) of this Article Fifth shall be in effect for the remainder of the Conversion Period.

        (k)   As soon as reasonably possible after the seventh (7th) day after the Offer Date, the Corporation shall send to each holder of shares of Class B Common Stock with a copy to the trustee under the Voting and Exchange Trust Agreement entered into with respect to the Exchangeable Class B Shares a notice advising such holders as to whether they are entitled to convert their shares of Class B Common Stock into shares of Class A Common Stock and the reasons therefor. If such notice discloses that they are not so entitled but it is subsequently determined that they are so entitled by virtue of paragraph (f) of this Article Fifth or otherwise, the Corporation shall forthwith send another notice to the holders of shares of Class B Common Stock advising them of that fact and the reasons therefor.

        (l)    If a notice referred to in paragraph (g) of this Article Fifth discloses that the conversion right provided for in paragraph (b) of this Article Fifth has come into effect, the notice shall:

G-10


        (m)  Prior to or forthwith after sending any notice referred to in paragraph (g) of this Article Fifth, the Corporation shall cause a press release to be issued to a U.S. and Canadian national newswire service, describing the contents of the notice.

        (n)   No stock certificates representing Exchangeable Converted Shares shall be delivered to or to the order of the holders of the shares before such shares are tendered into the Exclusionary Offer; the transfer agent, on behalf of the holders of the Exchangeable Converted Shares, shall tender pursuant to the Exclusionary Offer a certificate or certificates representing the Exchangeable Converted Shares. Upon completion of the Exclusionary Offer, the transfer agent shall deliver or cause to be delivered to the holders entitled thereto all consideration paid by the Offeror pursuant to the Exclusionary Offer in respect of the Exchangeable Converted Shares. If the Exchangeable Converted Shares are converted into shares of Class B Common Stock in accordance with the notice of irrevocable election pursuant to Section 16.3 of the Exchangeable Share Provisions (the "Exchangeable Election") delivered to the transfer agent, the transfer agent shall deliver to the holders entitled thereto a stock certificate or certificates representing the shares of Class B Common Stock resulting from the conversion. The Corporation shall make all arrangements with the transfer agent necessary or desirable to give effect to this paragraph (j). The Corporation shall be entitled to rely on the Exchangeable Election in converting Exchangeable Converted Shares into shares of Class B Common Stock. If the right of withdrawal from the Exclusionary Offer is not exercised by the holder of Exchangeable Converted Shares, any conversion into shares of Class B Common Stock pursuant to the Exchangeable Election shall become effective:

        (a)   Subject to and in compliance with the provisions of this Article Sixth, each holder of shares of Class A Common Stock may, at any time and from time to time, at such holder's election, convert any or all outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock held by such holder into shares of Class B Common Stock (any such conversion, a "Conversion") pursuant to the provisions of this paragraph (a) of Article Sixth. In order to effect a Conversion, a holder of shares of Class A Common Stock must deliver to the Secretary of the Corporation (i) a written notice of such holder's election to convert (a "Notice of Conversion") shares of Class A Common Stock specifying the number of shares to be converted and (ii) the certificate or certificates representing such shares. Such Notice of Conversion, once delivered to the Secretary of the Corporation, shall be irrevocable. As promptly as practicable after receipt by the Secretary of the Corporation of such Notice of Conversion and such certificate or certificates, the Corporation shall issue and shall deliver to such holder a certificate or certificates for the number of shares of Class B Common Stock issuable upon such Conversion in accordance with the provisions of this Article Sixth. In the event of a Conversion of a certificate or certificates in part, the Corporation shall also issue to such holder a certificate or certificates for the number of shares of Class A Common Stock not being so converted. A Conversion shall be deemed to have been consummated immediately prior to the close of business on the date the Secretary of the Corporation

G-11


receives the Notice of Conversion of the holder of Class A Common Shares electing to make such Conversion (the "Conversion Date"), or if the Conversion Date is not a business day, then the next business day, and as of such date such holder shall be deemed to be a holder of record of the number of shares of Class B Common Stock issuable upon such Conversion in accordance with this Article Sixth notwithstanding that the share register of the Corporation may then be closed or that a certificate or certificates representing such shares of Class B Common Stock shall not then actually be issued or delivered to such holder.

        (b)   Upon any Conversion the holder of shares of Class A Common Stock being converted shall receive a number of shares of Class B Common Stock equal to the number of shares of Class A Common Stock being converted.

        (c)   Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, prior to the delivery of any shares of Class B Common Stock that the Corporation is obligated to deliver pursuant to any Conversion, the Corporation shall comply with all applicable federal and state laws and regulations which require action to be taken by the Corporation in connection with such Conversion.

        (d)   The Corporation shall pay any and all documentary stamp or similar issue or transfer taxes payable in respect of the issue or delivery of shares of Class B Common Stock upon any Conversion, other than any tax payable in respect of any transfer involved in the issue or delivery of Class B Common Stock in a name other than that of the holder of the shares of Class A Common Stock converted pursuant to such Conversion immediately prior to such Conversion. The Corporation shall have the right not to issue or deliver any shares of Class B Common Stock in a name other than that of the holder of the shares of Class A Common Stock converted pursuant to a Conversion immediately prior to such Conversion unless and until the person requesting such issuance or delivery has paid to the Corporation the amount of any such tax or has established, to the satisfaction of the Corporation, that such tax has been paid.

        SEVENTH.    The Board of Directors is authorized to adopt, amend or repeal the bylaws of the Corporation (the "Bylaws"); provided, that the power of the Board of Directors to adopt, amend or repeal the Bylaws may be limited by an amendment to the Bylaws adopted by the holders of Class A Common Stock that provides that a particular Bylaw or Bylaws may only be adopted, amended or repealed by the holders of Class A Common Stock.

        EIGHTH.    Elections of directors need not be by written ballot except and to the extent provided in the Bylaws.

        (a)   Subject to subparagraph (b)(5)(iv) of Article Fourth, the number of directors of the Corporation shall be determined exclusively by resolution of the Board of Directors adopted in accordance with the requirements of the Bylaws.

        (b)   Any director or the entire Board of Directors may be removed with cause by a vote of the holders of a majority of the total votes entitled to be cast by the holders of the Class A Common Stock, Class B Common Stock, Special Class A Voting Stock, Special Class B Voting Stock and any then outstanding series of Preferred Stock entitled to vote on the election of directors, voting together as a single class. Any director may be removed without cause by a vote of the holders of a majority of the total votes entitled to be cast by the holders of the class or classes of stock the holders of which elected such director.

Any amendment, modification or repeal of this Article Eleventh shall be prospective only and shall not adversely affect any right or protection of a director of the Corporation that exists at the time of such amendment, modification or repeal.

        TWELFTH.    The Corporation shall indemnify and hold harmless, and advance expenses, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law as it presently exists or may hereafter be amended, any person who was or is made or is threatened to be made a party or is otherwise involved in any action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, by reason of the fact that he or she, or a person for whom he or she is the legal representative, is or was a director or officer of the Corporation or, while a director or officer of the Corporation, is or was serving at the request of the Corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation or of a partnership, joint venture, trust, enterprise or nonprofit entity, including service with respect to employee benefit plans maintained or sponsored by the Corporation (a "Covered Person") (including the heirs, executors, administrators and estate of such Covered Person), against all liability and loss suffered and expenses (including attorneys' fees) reasonably incurred by such Covered Person. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, except as otherwise provided in the Bylaws (as the same may provide from time to time), the Corporation shall be required to indemnify a Covered Person in connection with a proceeding (or a part thereof) commenced by such Covered Person only if the commencement of such proceeding (or part thereof) by the Covered Person was authorized by the Bylaws, in any written agreement with the Corporation, or in the specific case by the Board of Directors; provided, however, that if successful in whole or in part in any suit for the advancement of expenses or indemnification hereunder, the Covered Person shall be entitled to payment of the expense of litigating such suit.. Nothing contained in this Article Twelfth shall affect any rights to indemnification or advancement of expenses to which directors, officers, employees or agents of the Corporation otherwise may be entitled under the Bylaws, any written agreement with the Corporation or otherwise.

ARTICLE I

STOCKHOLDERS


        Section 1.1    Annual Meetings.     


        Section 1.2.    Special Meetings.     


        Section 1.3.    Notice of Meetings.     Whenever stockholders are required or permitted to take any action at a meeting, a notice of the meeting stating the place, if any, date and hour of the meeting, and the means of remote communications, if any, by which stockholders and proxy holders may be deemed to be present in person and vote at such meeting and, in the case of a special meeting, the purpose or purposes for which the meeting is called, shall be given to all stockholders of the Corporation, whether or not entitled to vote at such meeting. Unless otherwise provided by law, the notice of any meeting shall be given not less than ten (10) nor more than sixty (60) days before the date of the meeting to each stockholder of record entitled to notice of, or to vote at, the meeting. If mailed, such notice shall

H-1


be deemed to be given when deposited in the United States mail, postage prepaid, directed to the stockholder at such stockholder's address as it appears on the records of the Corporation.


        Section 1.4.    Adjournments.     Any meeting of stockholders, annual or special, may be adjourned from time to time, to reconvene at the same or some other place, and notice need not be given of any such adjourned meeting if the time, place thereof, if any, and the means of remote communications, if any, by which stockholders and proxy holders may be deemed to be present in person and vote at such adjourned meeting are announced at the meeting at which the adjournment is taken. At the adjourned meeting the Corporation may transact any business which might have been transacted at the original meeting. If the adjournment is for more than thirty (30) days, or if after the adjournment a new record date is fixed for the adjourned meeting, notice of the adjourned meeting shall be given to each stockholder of record entitled to notice of, or to vote at, the adjourned meeting.


        Section 1.5.    Quorum.     At each meeting of stockholders, except where otherwise provided by law or the Certificate of Incorporation or these Bylaws, the holders of shares entitled to cast a majority of the total votes of the outstanding shares of stock entitled to vote on a matter at the meeting, present in person or represented by proxy, shall constitute a quorum with respect to such matter. Shares entitled to vote as a separate class or series may take action on a matter at a meeting only if a quorum of those shares is present. For purposes of the foregoing, where a separate vote by class or classes or a series or multiple series is required for any matter, the holders of shares entitled to cast a majority of the total votes of the outstanding shares of such class or classes or a series or multiple series, present in person or represented by proxy, shall constitute a quorum to take action with respect to that vote on that matter. In the absence of a quorum of the holders of any class or series of stock entitled to vote on a matter, the holders of such class or series so present or represented may, by the affirmative vote of a majority of the voting power present or by action of the Chairman, adjourn the meeting of such class or series with respect to that matter from time to time in the manner provided by Section 1.4 of these Bylaws until a quorum of such class or series shall be so present or represented. Shares of its own capital stock belonging on the record date for the meeting to the Corporation or to another corporation, if a majority of the shares entitled to vote in the election of directors of such other corporation is held, directly or indirectly, by the Corporation, shall neither be entitled to vote nor be counted for quorum purposes; provided, however, that the foregoing shall not limit the right of the Corporation or any subsidiary of the Corporation to vote stock, including but not limited to its own stock, held by it in a fiduciary capacity.


        Section 1.6.    Organization.     

H-2



        Section 1.7.    Inspectors.     Prior to any meeting of stockholders, the Board of Directors may, and shall if required by law, appoint one or more inspectors to act at such meeting and make a written report thereof and may designate one or more persons as alternate inspectors to replace any inspector who fails to act. If no inspector or alternate is able to act at the meeting of stockholders, the person presiding at the meeting may, and shall if required by law, appoint one or more inspectors to act at the meeting. The inspectors need not be stockholders of the Corporation. Each inspector, before entering upon the discharge of his or her duties, shall take and sign an oath faithfully to execute the duties of inspector with strict impartiality and according to the best of his or her ability. The inspectors shall ascertain the number of shares outstanding and the voting power of each, determine the shares represented at the meeting and the validity of proxies and ballots, count all votes and ballots, determine and retain for a reasonable period a record of the disposition of any challenges made to any determination by the inspectors and certify their determination of the number of shares represented at the meeting and their count of all votes and ballots. The inspectors may appoint or retain other persons to assist them in the performance of their duties. The date and time of the opening and closing of the polls for each matter upon which the stockholders will vote at a meeting shall be announced at the meeting. No ballot, proxy or vote, nor any revocation thereof or change thereto, shall be accepted by the inspectors after the closing of the polls. In determining the validity and counting of proxies and ballots cast at any meeting of stockholders of the Corporation, the inspectors may consider such information as is permitted by applicable law.


        Section 1.8.    Voting; Proxies.     Unless otherwise provided in the Certificate of Incorporation, each stockholder entitled to vote at any meeting of stockholders shall be entitled to one (1) vote for each share of stock held by such stockholder that has voting power upon the matter in question. Each stockholder entitled to vote at a meeting of stockholders or to express consent or dissent to corporate action in writing without a meeting may authorize another person or persons to act for such stockholder by proxy, but no such proxy shall be voted or acted upon after three (3) years from its date, unless the proxy provides for a longer period. A duly executed proxy shall be irrevocable if it states that it is irrevocable and if, and only as long as, it is coupled with an interest sufficient in law to support an irrevocable power, regardless of whether the interest with which it is coupled is an interest in the stock itself or an interest in the Corporation generally. A stockholder may revoke any proxy which is not irrevocable by attending the meeting and voting in person or by filing an instrument in writing revoking the proxy or another duly executed proxy bearing a later date with the Secretary of the Corporation. Voting at meetings of stockholders need not be by written ballot unless the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of all classes of stock entitled to vote thereon present in person or represented by proxy at such meeting shall so determine. Except where applicable law or regulation (including the regulations of stock exchanges or similar bodies), the Certificate of Incorporation or these Bylaws require a different vote, if a quorum exists, action on a matter other than the election of directors is approved if the votes cast favoring the action exceed the votes cast opposing the action. In an election of directors, a plurality of the votes of the shares of the class or series of stock present in person or represented by proxy at a meeting and entitled to vote for the relevant directors is required in order to elect such director.

Such list shall be open to the examination of any stockholder, for any purpose germane to the meeting at least ten (10) days prior to the meeting (i) on a reasonably accessible electronic network, provided that the information required to gain access to such list is provided with the notice of meeting or (ii) during ordinary business hours at the principal place of business of the Corporation. The list of stockholders must also be open to examination at the meeting as required by applicable law. Except as otherwise provided by law, (a) the stock ledger shall be the only evidence as to who are the stockholders entitled by this Section 1.11 to examine the list of stockholders required by this Section 1.11 or to vote in person or by proxy at any meeting of stockholders and (b) failure to prepare or make available the list of stockholders shall not effect the validity of actions taken at the meeting.


        Section 1.12.    Consent of Stockholders in Lieu of Meeting.     Unless otherwise restricted by the Certificate of Incorporation, any action required or permitted to be taken at any annual or special meeting of the Class A Holders may be taken without a meeting, without prior notice and without a vote, if a consent or consents in writing, setting forth the action so taken, shall be signed by the holders of outstanding stock having not less than the minimum number of votes that would be necessary to authorize or take such action at a meeting at which all shares entitled to vote thereon were present and voted and shall be delivered to the Corporation by delivery to its registered office in the State of Delaware, its principal place of business, or an officer or agent of the Corporation having custody of the book in which minutes of proceedings of stockholders are recorded. Delivery made to the Corporation's registered office shall be by hand or by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested. Every written consent shall bear the date of signature of each stockholder who signs the consent and no written consent shall be effective unless, within sixty (60) days of the earliest dated consent delivered to the Corporation in the manner provided by the previous sentence, written consents signed by a sufficient number of holders to take action are delivered to the Corporation in the manner provided by the previous sentence. Prompt notice of the taking of the corporate action without a meeting by less than unanimous written consent shall be given to those stockholders who have not

H-6


consented in writing and who were Class A Holders or Class B Holders of record as of the date that written consents signed by a sufficient number of holders to take the action were delivered to the Corporation.


        Section 1.13.    Meeting by Remote Communication.     If authorized by the Board of Directors in its sole discretion, and subject to such guidelines and procedures as the Board of Directors may adopt, stockholders and proxyholders not physically present at a meeting of stockholders may, by means of remote communication: (a) participate in a meeting of stockholders; and (b) be deemed present in person and vote at a meeting of stockholders whether such meeting is to be held at a designated place or solely by means of remote communication, provided that (i) the Corporation shall implement reasonable measures to verify that each person deemed present and permitted to vote at the meeting by means of remote communication is a stockholder or proxyholder, (ii) the Corporation shall implement reasonable measures to provide such stockholders and proxyholders a reasonable opportunity to participate in the meeting and to vote on matters submitted to the stockholders, including an opportunity to read or hear the proceedings of the meeting substantially concurrently with such proceedings, and (iii) if any stockholder or proxyholder votes or takes other action at the meeting by means of remote communication, a record of such vote or other action shall be maintained by the Corporation.

Such resignation shall take effect at the time specified therein, and unless otherwise specified therein no acceptance of such resignation shall be necessary to make it effective. Subject to Section 2.7 of these Bylaws, the Board of Directors may remove any elected officer with or without cause at any time, and any officer appointed by the Chief Executive Officer may be removed with or without cause by the Chief Executive Officer at any time. Any such removal shall be without prejudice to the contractual rights of such officer, if any, with the Corporation, but the appointment of an officer shall not of itself create contractual rights.

Such power and authority shall be vested in the Class A-M Nominating Subcommittee during the first Biennial Period, the Class A-C Nominating Subcommittee during the second Biennial Period and shall continue to alternate between those committees during each Biennial Period thereafter. As used herein, "Biennial Period" means, (i) first, the period commencing on the Effective Time (as defined in the Combination Agreement) and ending on the last day of the fiscal year in which the Chief Executive Officer serving at the Effective Time ceases to hold such office, (ii) second, the period commencing immediately following the last day of the first Biennial Period referred to in clause (i) and ending on the third annual meeting of stockholders of the Corporation held after the commencement of the second Biennial Period, and (iii) thereafter, the period commencing immediately following the last day of the previous Biennial Period and ending on the date of the second annual meeting of stockholders of the Corporation held thereafter.

STOCK


        Section 5.1.    Stock Certificates and Uncertificated Shares.     The shares of stock in the Corporation shall be represented by certificates, provided that the Board of Directors may provide by resolution or resolutions that some or all of any or all classes or series of the Corporation's stock shall be uncertificated shares. Any such resolution shall not apply to shares represented by a certificate theretofore issued until such certificate is surrendered to the Corporation. Notwithstanding the adoption of such a resolution by the Board of Directors, every holder of stock represented by certificates, and upon request every holder of uncertificated shares, shall be entitled to have a

H-15


certificate signed by or in the name of the Corporation by the Chairman of the Board of Directors, if any, or the President or a Vice President, and by the Treasurer or an Assistant Treasurer, or the Secretary or an Assistant Secretary, of the Corporation, representing the number of shares of stock registered in certificate form owned by such holder. Any and all the signatures on the certificate may be by a facsimile. In case any officer, transfer agent or registrar who has signed or whose facsimile signature has been placed upon a certificate shall have ceased to be such officer, transfer agent or registrar before such certificate is issued, it may be issued by the Corporation with the same effect as if such person were such officer, transfer agent or registrar at the date of issue.


        Section 5.2.    Lost, Stolen or Destroyed Stock Certificates; Issuance of New Certificates.     The Corporation may issue a new certificate of stock or uncertificated shares in the place of any certificate theretofore issued by it, alleged to have been lost, stolen or destroyed, and the Corporation may require the owner of the lost, stolen or destroyed certificate, or such owner's legal representative, to give the Corporation a bond in such form and amount (not exceeding twice the value of the stock represented by such certificate) and with such surety and sureties as the secretary may require in order to indemnify it against any claim that may be made against it on account of the alleged loss, theft or destruction of any such certificate or the issuance of such new certificate or uncertificated shares.


        Section 5.3.    Transfer of Stock.     Subject to any transfer restrictions set forth or referred to on the stock certificate or of which the Corporation otherwise has notice, shares of the Corporation shall be transferable on the books of the Corporation upon presentation to the Corporation or to the Corporation's transfer agent of a stock certificate signed by, or accompanied by an executed assignment form signed by, the holder of record thereof, his duly authorized legal representative, or other appropriate person as permitted by the DGCL. The Corporation may require that any transfer of shares be accompanied by proper evidence reasonably satisfactory to the Corporation or to the Corporation's transfer agent that such endorsement is genuine and effective. Upon presentation of shares for transfer as provided above, the payment of all taxes, if any, therefor, and the satisfaction of any other requirement of law, including inquiry into and discharge of any adverse claims of which the Corporation has notice, the Corporation shall issue a new certificate to the person entitled thereto and cancel the old certificate. Every transfer of stock shall be entered on the stock books of the Corporation to accurately reflect the record ownership of each share. The Board of Directors also may make such additional rules and regulations as it may deem expedient concerning the issue, transfer, and registration of certificates for shares of the capital stock of the Corporation.


        Section 5.4.    Preferred Stock.     Shares of preferred stock shall be issued by the Corporation only after filing a Preferred Stock Designation described in paragraph (c) of Article Fourth of the Corporation's Certificate of Incorporation with the Delaware Secretary of State and satisfying all other requirements of the Certificate of Incorporation and the DGCL with respect thereto.


        Section 5.5.    Holders of Record.     The Corporation shall be entitled to treat the holder of record of any share of stock as the holder in fact thereof and, accordingly, shall not be bound to recognize any equitable or other claim to or interest in such share on the part of any other person, whether or not it shall have express or other notice thereof, except as may be allowed by these Bylaws or required by the laws of Delaware.


        Section 5.6.    Shares Held for the Account of a Specified Person or Persons.     The Board of Directors may adopt a procedure whereby a stockholder of the Corporation may certify in writing to the Corporation that all or a portion of the shares registered in the name of such stockholder are held for the account of a specified person or persons.

H-19


Board of Directors or the committee, and the Board of Directors or committee in good faith authorizes the contract or transaction by the affirmative votes of a majority of the disinterested directors, even though the disinterested directors be less than a quorum; or (ii) the material facts as to the director's or officer's relationship or interest and as to the contract or transaction are disclosed or are known to the stockholders entitled to vote thereon, and the contract or transaction is specifically approved in good faith by vote of the stockholders; or (iii) the contract or transaction is fair as to the Corporation as of the time it is authorized, approved or ratified, by the Board of Directors, a committee thereof or the stockholders.

        Section 8.9.    Addresses of Stockholders.     Each stockholder shall furnish to the Secretary of the Corporation or the Corporation's transfer agent an address to which notices from the Corporation, including notices of meetings, may be directed and if any stockholder shall fail so to designate such an address, it shall be sufficient for any such notice to be directed to such stockholder at such stockholder's address last known to the Secretary or transfer agent.


        Section 8.10.    Amendment of Bylaws.     


        Section 8.11.    Gender.     The masculine gender if and when used in these Bylaws is used as a matter of convenience only and shall be interpreted to include the feminine gender as the circumstances indicate.

Registration Rights:

On the terms described in this term sheet, each Eligible Stockholder will have the right to participate in any Demand Registration or Incidental Registration effected by the Issuer, regardless of who requested such registration.

Demand Registration:

Each of the Coors Beneficiary Representative and the Molson Beneficiary Representative (as such terms as defined in the Class A Coors Voting Trust Agreement) shall have the right to request that the Issuer file a registration statement (including, at the option of the Issuer, a shelf registration), covering all or a part of the Eligible Securities. Upon any such request, the Issuer will use its reasonable best efforts to effect such registration as soon as reasonably practicable, subject to the following:

 


The Issuer shall not be obligated to effect more than one registration during any 180-day period.

 


Each Beneficiary Representative shall have the right to request no more than five registrations.

 


If a registration involves an underwritten offering and the underwriters advise the Issuer that the number of shares requested to be included in the registration exceeds the number which can reasonably be sold (so as to have an adverse effect on a successful marketing, including the price at which shares can be sold or traded), then the Issuer may reduce the number of Eligible Securities proposed to be registered in view of market conditions (in which case, the Issuer will include in such registration a number of shares that, in the opinion of the underwriters, can be sold in view of market conditions, allocated pro rata among all requesting Eligible Stockholders on the basis of the relative number of Eligible Securities then held by each such requesting holder).

Incidental Registration:

Each Eligible Stockholder will be entitled to incidental (or "piggyback") registration rights on registrations of the Issuer (including demand registrations requested by a Beneficiary Representative or, subject to any other rights granted to third parties, any third parties), subject to the following:

 


The Issuer may elect to cancel or postpone a registration at any time, provided that such registration is not a demand registration requested by a Beneficiary Representative.
   

L-1



 


If a registration involves an underwritten offering and the underwriters advise the Issuer that the number of shares requested to be included in the registration and the number of shares the Issuer intends to include exceed the number which can reasonably be sold (so as to have an adverse effect on a successful marketing, including the price at which shares can be sold or traded), then the Issuer may reduce the number of Eligible Securities proposed to be registered in view of market conditions (in which case, the Issuer will include in such registration a number of shares that, in the opinion of the underwriters, can be sold in view of market conditions, in the following priorities (a) first, 100% of the securities the Issuer proposes to sell and (b) second, to the extent of the number of registrable securities that, in the opinion of the underwriters, can be sold in view of market conditions, allocated pro rata among all requesting Eligible Stockholders (without regard to whether such holders requested demand or incidental registrations) and, subject to any other rights granted to third parties, any third parties requesting registration on the basis of the relative number of shares of Coors Class B Common Stock then held by each such requesting Eligible Holder and third party).

Expenses:

The Issuer will pay reasonable customary registration expenses in connection with a registration.

Other Provisions:

The registration rights shall be subject to customary limitations, conditions and provisions, including those concerning blackout periods; indemnification; provision of information regarding requesting holders; selection of underwriters and counsel; and the execution and delivery of customary agreements.
