As of the date hereof, the Company has recovered most of its critical operational data and business systems. Although the Company is in the early stages of assessing the incident, based on the information currently known, the Company does not expect the incident to have a material impact on its business, operations or financial condition. The Company carries insurance, including cyber insurance, which it believes to be commensurate with its size and the nature of its operations.

The information in this Item 7.01 shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any registration statement or other filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except in the event that the Company expressly states that such information is to be considered “filed” under the Exchange Act or incorporates it by specific reference in such filing.
