States District Court for the District of Columbia, and Rule 7.1 of the Federal Rules of Civil
Procedure:

We, the undersigned counsel of record for Defendant R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company

best of our knowledge and belief, LTC has ceased to exist as a separate entity. For that reason,
LTC has no companies, subsidiaries, or affiliates that have any outstanding securities in the
hands of the public, nor does any company own at least 10% of the stock of LTC. On June 12,
2015, LTC was converted into a limited liability company, Lorillard Tobacco Company, LLC,
which then was merged with and into RJRT with RJRT as the surviving entity. As a result of the
conversion and merger, LTC and Lorillard Tobacco Company, LLC, ceased to exist as separate
entities. RJRT has been and remains an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of Reynolds
American Inc., the securities of which are publicly traded.

Brown & Williamson Holdings, Inc., owns more than 10% of the common stock of
Reynolds American Inc. Brown & Williamson Holdings, Inc., is an indirect, wholly owned
subsidiary of British American Tobacco p.l.c., the securities of which are publicly traded.
