___________________________
3 Sio and Sio GP, LLC (the “GP”) act as investment advisor and general partner, respectively, to various clients that were the record owners of the Common Stock previously reported on Schedule 13G. Because Sio’s investment discretion with respect to such clients is subject to oversight by the GP, the GP may be deemed to be the beneficial owner of the Common Stock of the Issuer owned by such clients. In addition, both Sio and the GP are controlled by Michael Castor. As such, he may have been deemed to control the voting and dispositive decisions with respect to, and therefore be the beneficial owner of, the shares of Common Stock previously reported on Schedule 13G. Neither the current filing nor prior filings of the Schedule 13G, or any of their contents, shall be deemed to constitute an admission by the GP or Michael Castor that such person was the beneficial owner of any of the equity securities referred to herein for purposes of Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act, or for any other purpose, and such beneficial ownership is expressly disclaimed.
