Does Molson Coors have more than one class of publicly-traded stock? If so, what are the primary differences?

Yes, as noted above, MCBC has Class A common stock and Class B common stock traded on the NYSE. In addition, MCBC’s indirect subsidiary, MCCI, has Class A exchangeable shares and Class B exchangeable shares traded on the TSX. The exchangeable shares were issued to certain shareholders by MCCI in connection with the February 2005 merger of Molson Inc. with and into Adolph Coors Company. As discussed further below, the exchangeable shares may, subject to certain terms and conditions, be exchanged for MCBC shares of Class A common stock or Class B common stock, respectively.

The primary difference between the classes of Molson Coors’ stock is the voting rights. The Class A common stock and Class B common stock are generally the same in all respects except for their voting rights and as otherwise provided in the MCBC Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Incorporation Certificate”). Further, until exchanged, the exchangeable shares are intended to be provided substantially the same economic and voting rights as MCBC’s Class A common stock and Class B common stock into which they may be exchanged. The exchangeable shares have voting rights through special voting shares held by a trustee.

In general, the holders of the Class B common stock and the Special Class B voting stock (as instructed by the holders of the Class B exchangeable shares) have limited voting rights and may only vote with respect to the following: (i) any matter required by the Delaware General Corporation Law, as amended; (ii) for the election of up to three Class B directors; and (iii) as provided in the Incorporation Certificate, including with respect to Molson Coors’ advisory say-on-pay vote. In all other cases, the right to vote is vested exclusively with the holders of the Class A common stock and the Special Class A voting stock (as instructed by the holders of Class A exchangeable shares).

The foregoing description of the Molson Coors’ capital stock not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Description of Registrant's Securities, a copy of which is an exhibit to the Molson Coors’ Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities & Exchange Commission.
