3. The reporting person's spouse is the sole trustee of the W. Earl Reed, III Gift Trust which is for the benefit of the reporting person's adult children. The reporting person disclaims beneficial ownership of these securities, and the filing of this report is not an admission that the reporting person is the beneficial owner of these securities for purposes of Section 16 or for any other purpose.
