Explanation of Responses:
1. TCW Asset Management Company LLC, as agent to various lenders of the Issuer, previously received a Warrant to Purchase Common Stock from the Issuer exercisable for 1,559,674 shares of common stock of the Issuer. On May 29, 2020, in re-issuance and replacement of the previous Warrant, the Issuer issued several new warrants directly to the lenders to the Issuer which warrants, taken together, were exercisable for the same aggregate number of shares of common stock as the previous Warrant. The re-issued warrants possessed by lenders that are associated with the TCW Business Unit are only exercisable for 992,328 shares of common stock in the aggregate.
2. On May 29, 2020, the Issuer issued several additional new warrants directly to the lenders to the Issuer in consideration for continuing and additional extensions of credit to the Issuer. The additional new warrants possessed by lenders that are associated with the TCW Business Unit are exercisable for 10,666,288 shares of common stock in the aggregate.
3. As described in Note 1 above, the TCW Business Unit did not sell or contractually dispose of securities of the Issuer; however, by virtue of the re-issuance of warrants previously issued on December 27, 2019 the TCW Business Unit is no longer deemed the beneficial ownership of the portion of warrants exercisable for 567,346 shares of common stock of the Issuer which was previously reported as beneficially owned on a Form 3.
4. Both the re-issued warrants and the new warrants were issued to lenders of the Issuer in consideration for continuing and additional extensions of credit to the Issuer.
5. Held in client accounts managed by The TCW Group, Inc. and its affiliates.
