We have made the group of companies listed above our direct wholly owned subsidiaries. However, we own 99.99% of each of the Mexican subsidiaries, and the remaining 0.01% (1 share) will be owned by the U.S. subsidiary, as the local law requires the subsidiaries to be held by at least two shareholders.
