The Reporting Person is:

Item 4
Ownership:

TCA acts as an investment adviser to certain investment companies registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940.  TCA, by virtue of investment advisory agreements with these investment companies, has all investment and voting power over securities owned of record by these investment companies.  However, despite their delegation of investment and voting power to TCA, these investment companies may be deemed to be the beneficial owners under Rule 13d-3 of the Act, of the securities they own of record because they have the right to acquire investment and voting power through termination of their investment advisory agreement with TCA.  Thus, TCA has reported that it shares voting power and dispositive power over the securities owned of record by these investment companies.  TCA also acts as an investment advisor to certain managed accounts.  Under contractual agreements with individual account holders, TCA, with respect to the securities held in the managed accounts, shares investment and voting power with certain account holders, and has no voting power but shares investment power with certain other account holders.  TCA may be deemed the beneficial owner of the securities covered by this statement under Rule 13d-3 of the Act.  None of the securities listed below are owned of record by TCA, and TCA disclaims any beneficial interest in such securities.
