The Reporting Persons may at any time acquire additional Shares (or other securities) of the Issuer or dispose of any or all of their Shares or other securities in the open market or otherwise or engage in any hedging or similar transactions with respect to such Shares (or other securities), depending upon their ongoing evaluation of their investment in such Shares (or other securities), prevailing market conditions, other investment opportunities and/or other investment considerations.
