In addition to the 377,085,167 shares of Common Stock held by MUFG directly, as of August 3, 2022, certain affiliates of MUFG held in the aggregate 1,623,804 shares of Common Stock (the “Managed Shares”) solely in a fiduciary capacity as the trustee of trust accounts or as the manager of investment funds, other investment vehicles and managed accounts. MUFG disclaims beneficial ownership of the Managed Shares, and the inclusion of the Managed Shares in this Amendment shall not be construed as an admission that MUFG is, for purposes of Sections 13(d) or 13(g) of the Act, the beneficial owner of such shares.

(a)    Rows (7) through (11) and (13) of the cover pages to this Amendment are hereby incorporated by reference. For purposes of calculating the percentages set forth on the cover pages of this Amendment, the number of shares outstanding is assumed to be 1,716,826,307 (which is the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding as of July 29, 2022 as reported by the Company in their Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, filed on August 5, 2022).

As of August 3, 2022, MUFG beneficially owns 377,085,167 shares of Common Stock.

In addition, MUFG may be deemed to be the beneficial owner of the Managed Shares.

The shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by MUFG (if MUFG is deemed to have beneficial ownership over the Managed Shares) represent approximately 22.06% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock.


(b)    Subject to the right of clients to withdraw their assets, including the Managed Shares managed by MUFG’s affiliates, MUFG has the sole power to vote or direct the vote and to dispose or to direct the disposition of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by it as indicated in rows (7) through (11) and (13) of the cover pages to this Amendment.
