On June 28, 2017, the Company entered into an At Market Issuance Sales Agreement (the “Sales Agreement”) with B. Riley FBR, Inc.

Sales of the Notes to the Sales Agreement, if any, may be made in transactions that are deemed to be “at the market offerings” as defined in Rule 415 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The Agent is not required to sell any specific number of the Notes, but the Agent will make all sales using commercially reasonable efforts consistent with its normal trading and sales practices on mutually agreed terms between the Agent and the Company. Under the Sales Agreement, the Agent will be entitled to compensation of 2.0% of the gross proceeds of all Notes sold through it as the Company’s agent.

The Notes sold to the Sales Agreement will be issued to a prospectus dated November 29, 2017, as supplemented by a prospectus supplement dated November 30, 2017, in each case filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) to the Company’s effective Registration Statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-221715) (the “Registration Statement”), which was declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 29, 2017.

The up to $40,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of the 2027 Notes and 2021 Notes that the Company may offer and sell under the prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus constitutes a further issuance of and are fungible with the $92,164,950 in aggregate principal amount of 7.50% Senior Notes due 2027 (the “Initial 2027 Notes”), and the $35,222,000 in aggregate principal amount of 7.50% Senior Notes due 2021 (the “Initial 2021 Notes” and, together with the Initial 2027 Notes, the “Initial Notes”), respectively, that the Company had issued as of November 28, 2017, and form a single series of debt securities with the Initial 2027 Notes and Initial 2021 Notes, respectively. The 2027 Notes and 2021 Notes will, immediately upon issuance, have terms identical to, have the same CUSIP number as and be fungible and vote together with, the Initial 2027 Notes and Initial 2021 Notes, respectively.
