(1) This amount reflects 4,544,570 Class B units (the “Class B Units”) of Zevia LLC, a subsidiary of Zevia PBC (the “Issuer”), and an equal number of shares of Class B common stock, $0.001 par value per share, of the Issuer (the “Class B Shares”) beneficially owned by Northwood Ventures LLC, a Florida limited liability company (“Ventures”). Each Class B Unit may be exchanged for one share of the Issuer’s Class A common stock, $0.001 par value per share (the “Class A Common Stock”), or, at the Issuer’s election, cash. Upon such exchange (or redemption for cash), the corresponding Class B Share is automatically retired. The aggregate number of Class B Shares beneficially owned by the Reporting Person is treated as converted into Class A Common Stock solely for the purpose of computing the percentage ownership of the Reporting Person.

Taking into account the 30,113,152 shares of Class B Common Stock issued and outstanding as of August 11, 2021, as disclosed in the Form 10-Q, Ventures beneficially owns approximately 7.0% of the Issuer’s issued and outstanding capital stock.
