Units are redeemable for an equal number of shares of the issuer's common stock or, at the election of the issuer, cash equal to the fair market value of such shares. The issuer elected to redeem the reporting person's Units with common stock. Units have no expiration date.
2. The sales reported were automatic pursuant to a Rule 10b5-1 trading plan adopted by the reporting person on December 10, 2015.
3. Includes 1,378 shares held in a joint account for the reporting person and his son.

5. In addition, 4,147 shares are held by children who share the reporting person's household. The reporting person disclaims beneficial ownership of all shares held by his children and this report should not be deemed an admission that the reporting person is the beneficial owner of such shares for purposes of Section 16 or otherwise.
