The Reporting Persons may acquire additional securities of the Issuer, or retain or sell all or a portion of the securities of the Issuer then held, in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions. Further, the Reporting Persons may engage in the transfer of shares to various entities controlled by them for estate planning purposes. In addition, Mr. Glazer, in his position as Chairman of the board of directors of the Issuer (the “Board”), may engage in discussions with management, other members of the Board, shareholders of the Issuer, and other relevant parties regarding potential corporate transactions, such as: a merger or reorganization or other transactions that could result in the de-listing or de-registration of the Issuer’s common stock; sales or acquisitions of assets or businesses; changes to the capitalization or dividend policy of the Issuer; or other material changes to the Issuer’s business or corporate structure, including changes in management or the composition of the Board.
