The original purpose of the transactions that occasioned this filing was an investment by the Reporting Person in the ordinary course of his business and with neither the purpose nor effect of changing or influencing the control of the Issuer, nor in connection with or as a participant in any transaction having such purpose or effect. As of February 13, 2023, however, the Reporting Person determined to initiate discussions with management and the Board of the Issuer concerning ways to create shareholder value through improved capital allocation that may address the Issuer's current negative enterprise value, which discussions may include a future presentation to the Board and/or management. Such discussions may be preliminary and exploratory in nature, and not rise to the level of a plan or proposal.
The Reporting Person may, from time to time, acquire or dispose of additional shares of Common Stock in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions. Any actions the Reporting Person might undertake will be dependent upon the Reporting Person's review of numerous factors, including, among other things, the price levels of the Common Stock, general market and economic conditions, ongoing evaluation of the Issuer's business, financial condition, operations and prospects, the relative attractiveness of alternative business and investment opportunities, and other future developments.

(a) The acquisition by any person of additional securities of the Issuer, or the disposition of securities of the Issuer;
(b) An extraordinary corporate transaction, such as a merger, reorganization or liquidation, involving the Issuer or any of its subsidiaries;
(c) A sale or transfer of a material amount of assets of the Issuer or any of its subsidiaries;
(d) Any change in the present board of directors or management of the Issuer, including any plans or proposals to change the number or term of directors or to fill any existing vacancies on the board;
(e) Any material change in the present capitalization or dividend policy of the Issuer;
(f) Any other material change in the Issuer's business or corporate structure including but not limited to, if the Issuer is a registered closed-end investment company, any plans or proposals to make any changes in its investment policy for which a vote is required by section 13 of the Investment Company Act of 1940;
(g) Changes in the Issuer's charter, bylaws or instruments corresponding thereto or other actions which may impede the acquisition of control of the Issuer by any person;
(h) Causing a class of securities of the Issuer to be delisted from a national securities exchange or to cease to be authorized to be quoted in an inter-dealer quotation system of a registered national securities association;
(i) A class of equity securities of the Issuer becoming eligible for termination of registration pursuant to Section 12(g)(4) of the Act; or
(j) Any action similar to any of those enumerated above.
