Based on the preliminary count by Computershare Trust Company, N.A., the depositary for the tender offer, a total of 5,035,906 shares of common stock were properly tendered and not properly withdrawn at or below the purchase price of $9.00 per share, including 709,375 shares that were tendered by notice of guaranteed delivery.

Because the tender offer was oversubscribed, and pursuant to the terms of the tender offer, the Company has elected to purchase 415,938 additional shares (2% of its outstanding shares of common stock). The relative number of shares of common stock that will be purchased from each shareholder will be prorated based on the number of shares of common stock properly tendered, except for tenders of odd lots, which will be accepted in full.
