1. Each share of each series of preferred stock was convertible at any time on a 1-for-0.3333 basis into Common Stock, at the holder's election, and each share of each series of preferred stock automatically converted upon the closing of the Issuer's initial public offering. The shares of each series of preferred stock have no expiration date.
2. Rothschild Trust Guernsey Limited ("Rothschild") is the trustee for the Ambergate Trust and has full investment and voting authority over the shares held in the Ambergate Trust. Pursuant to a voting agreement, Rothschild also has the authority to vote the shares held in the Lynda De Logi Trust. Robert W. Carlson, Jr. and Dana C. Smith are the trustees for the Lynda De Logi Trust, and Mr. Carlson and Ms. Smith have full investment authority over the shares held in the Lynda De Logi Trust. Unless otherwise stated, the securities reported herein are held directly by the Ambergate Trust. Each reporting person disclaims beneficial ownership of the securities reported herein except to the extent of his or her pecuniary interest therein, if any.
3. The Lynda De Logi Trust directly holds these securities.
4. The Convertible Subordinated Promissory Note (the "Convertible Note") was purchased by the reporting person in connection with an August 2011 financing. The Convertible Note automatically converted into shares of Common Stock upon the closing of the Issuer's initial public offering at a price per share equal to the public offering price with a 20% discount. Since the public offering price was $13.00, the price per share is $10.40.
