Golsen, who is the chief executive officer and chairman of the board of the Issuer, and Barry Golsen, a director and the president of the Issuer.
4.

8. On August 13, 2014, the reporting person's spouse sold a total of 20,000 shares of the Issuer's common stock (the beneficial ownership of which is disclaimed by the reporting person) at the weighted average price per share of $39.16, which is based on multiple prices ranging from $39.00 to $39.61.
