2. The reporting person is a director, officer and/or principal shareholder of the companies that own these shares, but he disclaims beneficial ownership of the listed shares except to the extent of his pecuniary interest therein.

The correct amount, as reflected in this report, should have been 382 shares of Class B Common stock.
