OCM GP LLC, in its capacity as the general partner of Oaktree, has the ability to direct the management of Oaktree, including the power to direct the decisions of Oaktree regarding the voting and disposition of securities beneficially owned by Oaktree.

Holdings I, in its capacity as the general partner of Oaktree Capital I, has the ability to direct the management of Oaktree Capital I’s business, including the power to direct the decisions of Oaktree Capital I regarding the voting and disposition of securities held by Oaktree Capital I. Therefore, Holdings I may be deemed to have indirect beneficial ownership of the Oaktree Shares.

Holdings, in its capacity as the managing member of Holdings I, has the ability to direct the management of Holding I’s business, including the power to direct the decisions of Holdings I regarding the voting and disposition of securities beneficially owned by Holdings I.

OCG, in its capacity as managing member of Holdings, has the ability to direct the management of Holdings’ business, including the power to direct the decisions of Holdings regarding the voting and disposition of securities beneficially owned by Holdings. Therefore, OCG may be deemed to have indirect beneficial ownership of the Oaktree Shares. OCG is managed by its 11 member board of directors.

Neither the filing of this Schedule 13D nor any of its contents shall be deemed to constitute an admission by any of the Reporting Persons that it is the beneficial owner of any of the shares of Common Stock referred to herein for the purposes of Section 13(d) of the Act, or for any other purpose, and such beneficial ownership is expressly disclaimed.


CUSIP No. 67401P 108  13D  Page 10 of 11 Pages

 

To the actual knowledge of the Reporting Persons, none of the Covered Persons directly owns any shares of Common Stock, other than Bruce A. Karsh, who beneficially owns 33,427 shares of Common Stock, and John B. Frank, who beneficially owns 162,789 shares of Common Stock (of which (i) 44,663 shares are held directly by Mr. Frank and (ii) 118,126 shares are held by a member of Mr. Frank’s family and he may be deemed to have voting and/or investment power with respect to, but he has no pecuniary interest in, such shares); provided, however, that because of each Covered Person’s status as an investment manager, manager, general partner, director, executive officer or member of a Reporting Person, a Covered Person may be deemed to be the beneficial owner of the shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by such Reporting Person. Each of the Covered Persons disclaims beneficial ownership of the shares of Common Stock reported herein, and the filing of this Schedule 13D shall not be construed as an admission that any such Covered Person is the beneficial owner of any securities covered by this statement, other than Mr. Frank with respect to shares of Common Stock directly owned by him.
