However, the shares of Common Stock acquired by the Reporting Persons are subject to certain restrictions included in the escrow agreement entered into between the Sponsor and the Issuer.

 

Except for the foregoing, the Sponsor and Reporting Persons have no plans or proposals which relate to, or could result in, any of the matters referred to in paragraphs (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D.
