7. Does the reverse stock split result in taxable income, gain or losses?

The Company has been advised that, under current law, for U.S. federal income tax purposes, the receipt of split shares of common stock, as a result of this reverse share split, will not result in any taxable income, gain or losses to shareholders. Further, immediately after the reverse stock split, the per share tax basis of all shares of common stock held by a shareholder will be the basis in the original shares allocated equally to the original shares and the split shares. For example, if you own 100 shares of WPG common stock before the reverse share split with a tax basis of $15.00 per share, after the split you own 12 shares of WPG common stock with a tax basis of $125.00 per share. Finally, the split shares will be deemed to have been acquired at the same time as the original shares.

The aforementioned tax information is furnished for your assistance, but you should consult your personal tax advisor regarding the impact this might have on your personal situation.

The laws of jurisdictions other than that of the U.S. may impose income taxes, gains or losses on this reverse share split. For WPG common shareholders outside of the U.S., please consult your local tax advisor on tax impacts as they could vary by jurisdiction.
