3. The Viking Entities acquired Roivant Sciences Ltd. ("Roivant") common shares (the "Roivant Common Shares") on December 8, 2015. Roivant directly holds the 75,000,000 Common Shares reported herein.

4. Ms. Shabet disclaims beneficial ownership of these securities except to the extent of her pecuniary interest therein, and the inclusion of these securities in this report shall not be deemed an admission of beneficial ownership of the reported securities for purposes of Section 16 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), or for any other purpose.
