Ownership information with respect to Theventheran (Kevin) G. Govender and Disant Holdings LP is incorporated by reference to items (5) through (9) and (11) on the applicable cover page above. Mr. Govender has sole voting and investment power with respect to the shares held by Disant Holdings LP. Pursuant to the Consortium Agreement, dated January 24, 2021 (the “Consortium Agreement”), by and between stockholder parties thereto and their nominees, which include Disant Holdings LP, certain holders have agreed to act in concert with respect to voting matters relating to the Issuer, including the election of directors, and have provided the other parties thereto certain pre-emptive rights with respect to any potential sale of the Issuer’s common stock by a stockholder party thereto. Because of the arrangements in the Consortium Agreement, the parties will be deemed to have formed a “group” for purposes of Section 13(d)(3) of the Exchange Act, and such “group” will be deemed to beneficially own an aggregate of 74,900,640 shares of the Issuer’s common stock. 247,685 of the shares beneficially owned by Mr. Govender are not subject to the Consortium Agreement.

The reporting person expressly disclaims beneficial ownership of the shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by other group members and has retained the sole voting and investment power of the shares of Common Stock it beneficially owns. It is the understanding of the reporting persons that other group members are filing separate Schedule 13Gs pursuant to Rule 13d-1(k)(2) under the Exchange Act addressing their respective statuses as members of a “group” with the reporting person.
