Odd lot holders

Source and amount of funds

Assuming the tender offer is fully subscribed  at $14.00 per share (which is the maximum price per share pursuant to the tender offer), we expect the aggregate Purchase Price for the shares acquired pursuant to the tender offer, together with all related fees and expenses, to be approximately $40.5 million. We expect to fund the purchase of shares tendered in the tender offer and the payment of related fees and expenses from cash on hand. The tender offer is not subject to a financing contingency.
