This 13F Report is being filed by The TCW Group, Inc. ("TCW") on behalf of itself and its direct and indirect subsidiaries, which collectively constitute the TCW business unit (the "TCW Business Unit"). Investment funds affiliated with The Carlyle Group, L.P. ("The Carlyle Group") own an indirect minority controlling interest in TCW. The TCW Business Unit is managed separately and operated independently. TCW is the parent holding company of a number of operating subsidiaries some of which are or may be "institutional investment managers" for purposes of the reporting requirements under Section 13(f) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Act") and the rules promulgated thereunder. TCW itself does not in fact exercise, and therefore disclaims, investment discretion with respect to any Section 13(f) securities positions over which its operating subsidiaries in fact exercise investment discretion. To the extent, however, that TCW's ownership interest in such operating units may nevertheless give rise to a Form 13(f) filing obligation on behalf of TCW, the information required by Form 13(f) is reported herein on behalf of certain of TCW's operating units, some of which are themselves institutional investment managers subject to Section 13(f) of the Act. In that regard, the Section 13(f) securities positions of TCW Asset Management Company LLC, Metropolitan West Asset Management, LLC, TCW Investment Management Company LLC, Sepulveda Management LLC and TCW Special Situations, LLC are included in this Form 13F report. ALPS Advisors, Inc., Cornerstone Advisors, Inc., GuideStone Capital Management, LLC, and SEI Investments Management Corporation are advisers to certain accounts sub-advised by TCW Investment Management Company LLC and Metropolitan West Asset Management, LLC, and securities held in those accounts are included herein.
