The information set forth in Rows 5 through 11 of the cover page for each Reporting Person is hereby incorporated by reference into this Item 4(b) foreach such Reporting Person.

The Reporting Persons’ ownership exceeded 10% of the class of the Preferred Stock due to issuer buybacks (and not through purchases by the Reporting Persons).
