Holders of the Old Bristow Preferred Stock Awards received Company equity awards entitling them to receive an aggregate of approximately 538,601 shares of Company Common Stock (exclusive of shares underlying unvested equity awards forfeited at the closing of the Merger) upon exercise or vesting thereof, as applicable, or approximately 1.7% of the fully diluted shares.
