*As more fully described in Item 4, certain of the warrants (the “Warrants”) are subject to a 9.99% blocker (the “9.99% Blocker”), and the percentage set forth in row (11) gives effect to such 9.99% Blocker. However, as more fully described in Item 4, the shares of Common Stock reported as being issuable upon exercise of Warrants in rows (6), (8) and (9) include the number of shares of Common Stock that would be issuable upon full exercise of the Warrants and does not give effect to such 9.99% Blocker. Therefore, the actual number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by such Reporting Person, after giving effect to such 9.99% Blocker, is less than the number of shares of Common Stock reported in rows (6), (8) and (9) to be issuable upon exercise of the Warrants.
