(1) Consists of 18,000,000 shares of Common Stock held directly by Esousa Holdings LLC and 1,827,486 shares of Common Stock underlying warrants that are held directly by Ceocast, Inc.

 

(2) This percentage is calculated based on 188,118,436 shares of Common Stock outstanding as of March 1, 2022. As more fully described in Item 4, the warrants are subject to a 9.99% beneficial ownership maximum, and the percentage set forth in row (11) gives effect to such beneficial ownership maximum. However, as more fully described in Item 4, the securities reported in rows (5), (7) and (9) show the number of Common Stock that would be issuable upon full exercise of such reported securities and do not give effect to such beneficial ownership maximum. Therefore, the actual number of Common Stock beneficially owned by such Reporting Person, after giving effect to such beneficial ownership maximum, is less than the number of securities reported in rows (5), (7) and (9).
