The number of shares reported above includes 6,281,121 shares of Class B Common Stock of the Issuer which are immediately convertible into an equal number of shares of Class A Common Stock at the option of the holder. If shares of Class B Common Stock are transferred to any person other than a “Permitted Transferee” (as defined in the Issuer’s Second Restated Articles of Incorporation), such shares are automatically converted on a share-for-share basis into shares of Class A Common Stock. Shares of Class B Common Stock of the Issuer have the same attributes as shares of Class A Common Stock of the Issuer except that each share of Class B Common Stock entitles the holder thereof to ten votes on all matters upon which Shareholders have a right to vote and each share of Class A Common Stock entitles the holder thereof to one vote on such matters.

If all the outstanding shares of Class B Common Stock of the Issuer were converted into shares of Class A Common Stock, Mr. Welch would be deemed to be the beneficial owner of 5.4% of the Class A Common Stock.
