Excepted Holder Agreement

On April 26, 2024, the Company’s Board of Directors, under the terms of the Company’s charter (the “Charter”), created an aggregate stock ownership limit of 14% (the “Capital Stock Excepted Holder Limit”) for Howard Amster, a stockholder of the Company, and entities through which he holds such stock. On May 3, 2024, the Company entered into an Excepted Holder Agreement with Mr. Amster with respect to such limit. The Capital Stock Excepted Holder Limit provides that Mr. Amster is exempted from the Charter’s ownership limit of not more than 9.8% in value of the aggregate of all classes of stock of the Company and is instead subject to the percentage limit established by the Board. Mr. Amster remains subject to the Charter’s limitation of his ownership to 9.8% of all outstanding Common Stock of the Company. The Excepted Holder Agreement and Capital Stock Excepted Holder Limit will automatically terminate upon reduction of Mr. Amster’s ownership of all classes of stock of the Company below 9.8% in value in the aggregate.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
