Not an Offer to Sell or Buy

The materials on this Website are provided merely as information and are not intended to be, nor should they be construed as, an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any security. Funds, investment vehicles, and accounts managed by Blackwells currently beneficially own shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of the Company (“Shares”). These funds, investment vehicles, and accounts are in the business of trading – buying and selling – securities and intend to continue trading in the securities of the Company. You should assume such funds, investment vehicles, and accounts will from time to time sell all or a portion of their holdings of the Company in open market transactions or otherwise, buy additional Shares (in open market or privately negotiated transactions or otherwise), or trade in options, puts, calls, swaps or other derivative instruments relating to such Shares, regardless of the views expressed on this Website. Blackwells reserves the right to take any actions with respect to investments in the Company as it may deem appropriate, including, but not limited to, communicating with the Company’s management, the Company’s board of directors, other investors and stockholders, stakeholders, industry participants, and/or interested or relevant parties about the Company or seeking representation on the Company’s board of directors at future annual meetings of the Company, and to change its intentions with respect to its investments in the Company at any time and disclaims any obligation to notify the market or any other party of any such changes or actions, except as required by law.

Although Blackwells believes the statements made on this Website are substantially accurate in all material respects and do not omit to state material facts necessary to make those statements not misleading, Blackwells makes no representation or warranty, express or implied, as to the accuracy or completeness of those statements or any other written or oral communication it makes with respect to the Company and any other companies mentioned, and each of Blackwells, the other Participants (as defined below) and their respective affiliates expressly disclaim any liability relating to those statements or communications (or any inaccuracies or omissions therein). Thus, stockholders and others should conduct their own independent investigation and analysis of those statements and communications and of the Company and any other companies to which those statements or communications may be relevant.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

Some of the materials on this Website contain forward-looking statements. All statements contained herein that are not clearly historical in nature or that necessarily depend on future events are forward-looking, and the words “anticipate,” “believe,” “expect,” “potential,” “could,” “intend,” “project,” “will,” “may,” “would,” “opportunity,” “estimate,” “plan,” and similar expressions are generally intended to identify forward-looking statements.

The projected results and statements contained herein that are not historical facts are based on current expectations, speak only as of the date of these materials and involve risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results, performances or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performances or achievements expressed or implied by such projected results and statements. Assumptions relating to the foregoing involve judgments with respect to, among other things, future economic competitive and market conditions and future business decisions, all of which are difficult or impossible to predict accurately and many of which entail risks and uncertainties and are beyond the control of Blackwells.

Though certain material on this Website may contain projections, nothing on this Website is, or is intended to be, a prediction of the future trading price or market value of securities of the Company. Accordingly, there is no assurance or guarantee with respect to the prices at which any securities of the Company will trade, and such securities may not trade at prices that may be implied herein. The estimates, projections and potential impact of the opportunities identified by Blackwells herein are based on assumptions that Blackwells believes to be reasonable as of the date of the materials on this Website, but there can be no assurance or guarantee that (i) any of the proposed actions set forth on this Website will be completed, (ii)  the actual results or performance of the Company will not differ, and such differences may be material, or (iii)  any of the assumptions provided in this Website are accurate.

There can be no assurance that the projected results or forward-looking statements included herein will prove to be accurate, and therefore actual results could differ materially from those set forth in, contemplated by, or underlying these forward-looking statements. In light of the significant uncertainties inherent in the projected results and forward-looking statements included herein, the inclusion of such information should not be regarded as a representation as to future results or that the objectives and strategic initiatives expressed or implied by such projected results and forward-looking statements will be achieved. Blackwells will not undertake and specifically declines any obligation to disclose the results of any revisions that may be made to any projected results or forward-looking statements herein to reflect events or circumstances after the date of such projected results or statements or to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events.
