Appendix A

Recent Operating Results (Preliminary and Unaudited)

Set forth below are preliminary estimates of unaudited selected financial and other data for the six months ended June 30, 2019 and actual unaudited financial and other data for the six months ended June 30, 2018. Our unaudited interim consolidated financial statements for the six months ended June 30, 2019 are not yet available. The following information reflects our preliminary estimates based on currently available information and is subject to change. We have provided ranges, rather than specific amounts, for the preliminary estimates of the financial and other data described below primarily because our financial closing procedures for the six months ended June 30, 2019 are not yet complete and, as a result, our final results upon completion of our closing procedures may vary from the preliminary estimates. See the sections titled “Risk Factors,” “Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements,” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” for additional information regarding factors that could result in differences between the preliminary estimated ranges of certain of our financial and other data presented below and the actual financial and other data we will report for the six months ended June 30, 2019.

The preliminary estimates for the six months ended June 30, 2019 presented below have been prepared by, and are the responsibility of, management. PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, our independent registered public accounting firm, has not audited, reviewed, compiled, or performed any procedures with respect to such preliminary data nor has PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP audited, reviewed, or compiled the financial data for the comparative six-month period ended June 30, 2018. Accordingly, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP does not express an opinion or any other form of assurance with respect thereto.
