It is noted that the Right to Purchase under Article 111 of the CFA and the Warrant Right to Purchase are exercised with respect to all Residual Shares and all Residual Warrants regardless of the demand for payment of the consideration of the Joint Procedure and/or the Warrant Right to Purchase above, as of November 4, 2022. Holders of Residual Shares and Residual Warrants will be able to obtain payment of the consideration for the Joint Procedure and/or the Warrant Purchase Right directly from their respective intermediaries. After the expiration of the five-year limitation period set forth in Article 2949 of the Civil Code, and subject to the provisions of Articles 2941 et seq. of the Civil Code, holders of Residual Shares and Residual Warrants who have not requested payment will lose the right to obtain payment of the consideration for the Joint Procedure and the Warrant Purchase Right.
