Item 5 of this Schedule 13D is hereby amended and restated as follows:

 

As of the Filing Date the Reporting Person, through one or more intermediate entities, possesses the sole power to vote and the sole power to direct the disposition of all securities of the Company held by the Reporting Person. Based upon the Company’s disclosure as set forth on its investor relations web page, viewed as of the Filing Date, as of June 14, 2022, there were 1,900,549,857 issued and outstanding Registered Shares. Thus, for the purposes of Rule 13d-3 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Act”), the Reporting Person is deemed to beneficially own 14.0% of the Registered Shares issued and outstanding as of the Filing Date.

 

In addition to the Registered Shares held by the Reporting Person and deemed beneficially owned by the Reporting Person, Executive Officers and Directors hold Registered Shares. Two of the Executive Officers and Directors are members of the Company’s Board of Directors and hold Registered Shares. Pursuant to Rule 13d-4 under the Act, the Reporting Person disclaims the beneficial ownership of any Registered Shares held by the Executive Officers and Directors.

 

Other than as set forth herein, there were no transactions in the Registered Shares, or securities convertible into, exercisable for, or exchangeable for, Registered Shares, by the Reporting Person or any other person or entity controlled by Reporting Person, or any person or entity for which the Reporting Person possesses voting or investment control, during the period commencing sixty (60) days prior to the Filing Date.

 

The Reporting Person has historically sold put options that permit the holder of the put option to require the Reporting Person to purchase the Registered Shares in accordance with the terms of the applicable put option. The Reporting Person may sell, on one or more occasions, additional put options.

 

Nothing set forth herein shall be construed as an admission by the Reporting Person, or any other person or entity, that the Reporting Person, or any other person or entity, is the beneficial owner of any of the Company’s securities that are beneficially owned by any other person or entity for the purposes of Section 13(d) of the Act, or for any other purposes.

 

Except as otherwise described herein, no contracts, arrangements, understandings, or similar relationships exist with respect to the securities of the Company between the Reporting Person, or any other person or entity controlled by Reporting Person, or any person or entity for which the Reporting Person possesses voting or investment control, and any other person or entity.
