The Company has not established a minimum distribution payment level and is not assured of its ability to make distributions to stockholders in the future.

As of September 16, 2021, the Company had 138,055,140 shares of common stock outstanding. As of August 31, 2021, the Company had 129,280,140 shares of common stock outstanding. As of June 30, 2021, the Company had 117,500,013 shares of common stock outstanding.
