The following is additional information about Kim Anderson and The Reading Room, Inc., which provided a recommendation, discovery and e-commerce platform for books. Kim Anderson was an executive director and CEO of The Reading Room, Inc. until May 2016, at which time she resigned from those positions. In 2016, The Reading Room, Inc.’s senior lender acquired all of The Reading Room, Inc.’s assets in a managed foreclosure sale in May 2016, and having regard to the businesses’ capital requirements while still in pre-profit phase, a corporate reorganisation was undertaken with Kim forgiving her debt and redistributing equity, pro rata, that she would have otherwise received in Reading Room, Inc., to existing shareholders of The Reading Room, Inc. Senior lenders and other creditors received equity, were paid in full or retained their existing loans as part of the above and no entities were placed into involuntary administration or liquidation. The Reading Room, Inc. was wound up and a new company named Bookstr was created, which continues to trade.

The other members of the Supervisory Board do not believe that this matter is material to or indicative of the future performance of Kim in her duties as a member of the Supervisory Board or the future performance or prospects of Marley Spoon.
