The percentage of Shares reported to be beneficially owned by the Reporting Persons are based on 14,972,552 Shares outstanding as of November 10, 2021, as reported in the Issuer’s Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on November 12, 2021.

Armistice Capital, LLC (“Armistice Capital”) is the investment manager of Armistice Capital Master Fund Ltd. (the “Master Fund”), the direct holder of the Shares, and pursuant to an Investment Management Agreement, Armistice Capital exercises voting and investment power over the securities of the Issuer held by the Master Fund and thus may be deemed to beneficially own the securities of the Issuer held by the Master Fund. Mr. Boyd, as the managing member of Armistice Capital, may be deemed to beneficially own the securities of the Issuer held by the Master Fund. The Master Fund specifically disclaims beneficial ownership of the securities of the Issuer directly held by it by virtue of its inability to vote or dispose of such securities as a result of its Investment Management Agreement with Armistice Capital.

A listing of the shareholders of an investment company registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940 or the beneficiaries of employee benefit plan, pension fund or endowment fund is not required.
  The Master Fund, a Cayman Islands exempted company that is an investment advisory client of Armistice Capital, has the right to receive dividends from, or the proceeds from the sale of, the reported securities.
