Item 4.

Ownership

Reference is hereby made to Rows 5-9 and 11 of pages 2, 3 and 4 of this Schedule, which are incorporated by reference herein.

As of June 7, 2021, the Fund beneficially owns 281,383 shares of the issuer’s common stock.

The securities reported on this Schedule as beneficially owned by TCM (the “Securities”) are held by and for the benefit of the Fund. Under the definition of “beneficial ownership” in Rule 13d-3 under the Act, it is also possible that the individual general partners, executive officers, and members of the foregoing entities might be deemed the “beneficial owners” of some or all of the Securities insofar as they may be deemed to share the power to direct the voting or disposition of such Securities. TCM, as the investment manager and general partner of the Fund, and Collin McBirney, as the member-manager of TCM, may, therefore, be deemed to beneficially own the Securities held by the Fund for the purposes of Rule 13d-3 under the Act insofar as they may be deemed to have the power to direct the voting or disposition of those Securities.

Neither the filing of this Schedule nor any of its contents shall be deemed to constitute an admission that any of TCM or Mr. McBirney is, for any other purpose, the beneficial owner of any of the Securities held by the Fund, and each of TCM and Mr. McBirney expressly disclaims beneficial ownership as to the Securities held by the Fund, except to the extent of its or his pecuniary interests therein.

The calculation of percentage of beneficial ownership in Row 11 of pages 2, 3 and 4 of this Schedule was derived from the issuer’s Form 10-Q Quarterly Report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 22, 2021, in which the issuer stated that the number of shares of its common stock outstanding as of April 21, 2021 was 3,803,195 shares.
