Messrs. Halvorsen and Ott and Ms. Shabet, as Executive Committee Members of Viking Global Partners LLC (the general partner of VGI), VGP, VLFGP and Opportunities GP, have shared authority to direct the voting and disposition of investments beneficially owned by VGI, VGP, VLFGP and Opportunities GP. Accordingly, each of Messrs. Halvorsen and Ott and Ms. Shabet may be deemed to have beneficial ownership over any Common Shares deemed beneficially owned by VGI, VGP, VLFGP and Opportunities GP.

The percentage of outstanding Common Shares of the Issuer that may be deemed to be beneficially owned by each Reporting Person is set forth on Line 13 of such Reporting Person’s cover sheet. Such percentage was calculated for each Reporting Person based on a total of based on 152,175,480 Common Shares outstanding, as reported in the Issuer’s prospectus supplement filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b)(5) under the Act on December 17, 2018.
