3. As previously reported on the reporting persons' Form 3 and Form 4s with respect to the Issuer, (i) the Fund holds 1,215,950 shares of Common Stock, and 402 Capital and Mr. Jacobs report the shares held by the Fund because as the investment manager of the Fund, and the managing member of 402 Capital, respectively, they control the disposition and voting of the securities, and (ii) SCA holds 1,079,797 shares of Common Stock, and 402 Capital controls the voting and disposition of the Common Stock held by SCA, of which 402 Capital is the investment manager. An affiliate of 402 Capital, for which Mr. Jacobs is the managing member, serves as the general partner of SCA and receives an allocation of net profits from SCA.
