These payments reflect a withholding by one of these purchasers of approximately $2.1 million for the estimated aggregate capital gains taxes payable in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for all shares of AMAK sold by Trecora to all of the purchasers, and which will be paid by such purchaser on the Company’s behalf as an administrative accommodation.
