Conflict of Interest:
B. Riley FBR or its affiliate intends to purchase $2,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the Notes in this offering from us at the public offering price. B. Riley Financial, Inc., the parent company of B. Riley FBR, is the beneficial owner of approximately 11% of our outstanding Class A common shares. An aggregate of 1,816,159 of such shares were acquired by B. Riley Financial, Inc. and its affiliate in our offering of common shares that was completed on October 1, 2019 and are subject to lock-up agreements with Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (“FINRA”) pursuant to FINRA Rule 5110(g) until March 24, 2020. Under FINRA Rule 5121(f)(6), a beneficial owner of 10 percent or more of the outstanding common equity of an entity is deemed to “control” such entity. In addition, B. Riley Financial, Inc. and B. Riley FBR have entered into a Board Observer Agreement, which (i) amended the prior engagement letter and underwriting agreement between B. Riley FBR and the Issuer to eliminate the right of B. Riley FBR and its affiliate to appoint a director to our Board of Directors; and (ii) granted a right to B. Riley Financial, Inc. to designate an observer to our Board of Directors, provided that B. Riley Financial, Inc. owns more than 5% of the outstanding voting power of the Issuer.
As a result of its “control” of the Issuer under FINRA Rules, B. Riley FBR is deemed to have a “conflict of interest” within the meaning of Rule 5121, and this offering will be conducted in accordance with the requirements of Rule 5121(a). That rule requires that a “qualified independent underwriter” meeting specified requirements must participate in the preparation of this prospectus and exercise its usual standard of due diligence with respect thereto. Ladenburg Thalmann & Co. Inc. has agreed to act as the qualified independent underwriter for this offering and has agreed in so acting to undertake the legal responsibilities and liabilities of an underwriter under the Securities Act of 1933. Ladenburg Thalmann & Co. Inc. will not receive a fee for acting as the qualified independent underwriter for this offering.
