The percentage set forth on Row (11) and the number of Shares set forth on rows (5), (7) and (9) of the cover page for each Reporting Person give effect to the 9.99% Blocker. Consequently, at this time, the Reporting Persons are not able to exercise or convert all of the Securities due to the 9.99% Blocker.

  
(b)
