The ten director nominees were elected. Votes were received as follows:

The voting results for Mr. Ted Goldthorpe may be in response to the proxy advisory firm Institutional Shareholder Services' ("ISS") recommendation that shareholders withhold from voting for Mr. Goldthorpe due to their assessment of overboarding. In contrast, the proxy advisory firm Glass Lewis recommended shareholders vote in favour of Mr. Goldthorpe's election. Crescent Point believes in engaging with its shareholders and responding to their feedback. As such, the Company's Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee and Mr. Goldthorpe will work together to address these concerns.
