Specifically, the Retained Entities obtained from the Debtors or their representatives the names of individuals and entities that may be parties in interest in these Chapter 11 Cases (as amended, supplemented, or modified from time to time, the “Potential Parties in Interest”), and such parties were listed on Schedule 1 to the Initial Declaration and 2 Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Application or the Prior Declarations, as applicable. 3 Certain information set forth herein relates to matters (i) contained in the Retained Entities’ books and records or (ii) within the knowledge of other the Retained Entities’ employees, and is based on information provided by such employees to me.

Schedule 1 to the First Supplemental Declaration. The following connections to Potential Parties in Interest have come to my attention since the filing of the Second Supplemental Declaration: a. Macquarie Aerospace Finance 36707 Trust MSN 39439 Trust and Macquarie Aviation Capital Finance are Potential Parties in Interest. A Merchant Banking Business affiliate and one or more affiliates of such Potential Parties in Interest are currently acting as co-lenders to an entity that is not a Potential Party in Interest. b. A Merchant Banking Business affiliate manages funds with assets under management that have previously included and may currently include debt obligations of Delta Air Lines Inc., a Potential Party in Interest, and/or its affiliates. 4. To the best of my knowledge, based on the processes described in the Prior Declarations, except as set forth in the Prior Declarations, no individual client described in Schedule 2 to the Initial Declaration, Schedule 2 to the First Supplemental Declaration, the Second Supplemental Declaration or this Supplemental Declaration: a. accounts for more than 1.0% of the Global Advisory Business’s gross revenue during the twelve month period from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021; b. accounts for more than 1.0% of Rothschild & Co Mexico’s gross revenue during such period; or c. accounts for more than 1.0% of Rothschild & Co US’s gross revenue during such period, except that: i.

ii. Telus (one of the Debtors’ utilities), and/or its affiliates (collectively, “Telus”), accounted for less than 2.70% of Rothschild & Co US’s gross revenue during such period.5 5. Accordingly, insofar as I have been able to determine, neither of the Retained Entities, nor I, nor any employee of the Retained Entities holds or represents any interest adverse to the Debtors or their estates, and the Retained Entities are each a “disinterested person” as that term is defined in Bankruptcy Code section 101(14), as modified by section 1107(b), in that such professionals: a. are not creditors, equity security holders, or insiders of the Debtors; b. were not, within two years before the date of filing of the Debtors’ chapter 11 petitions, a director, officer or employee of the Debtors; and c. do not have an interest materially adverse to the interest of the Debtors’ estates or any class of creditors or equity security holders, by reason of any direct or indirect relationship to, connection with, or interest in, the Debtors, or for any other reason.
