(1) Reflects warrants acquired by Dialog Semiconductor plc ("Dialog") pursuant to that certain Securities Purchase Agreement, dated November 9, 2016, by and between Dialog and Energous Corporation (the "Issuer").
(2) The terms of such warrants provide that such warrants are required to be exercised on a net share settlement basis, such that the number of shares of common stock (the "Shares") to be delivered by the Issuer on the exercise of such warrant equals the quotient of (x) the product of the number of Shares as to which such warrant is being exercised and the difference between the market price of the Shares on the exercise date and the exercise price of the warrant and(y) the market price of the Shares on the exercise date (provided that if the calculation results in a negative number, no Shares are issuable upon exercise of the warrant). Dialog has included all Shares underlying such warrants, notwithstanding that such mandatory net share settlement terms preclude Dialog from receiving all underlying Shares on exercise of the warrant.
(3) Reflects warrants acquired by Dialog pursuant to that certain Securities Purchase Agreement, dated June 28, 2017, by and between Dialog and the Issuer.
