The following table sets forth information concerning the beneficial ownership of the Company's ordinary shares as of July 31, 2018, following completion of the Share Distribution, for: i) each of the Company's directors and executive officers; and ii) each person known to the Company to beneficially own more than 5% of the Company's issued and outstanding ordinary shares.
