( 1 )The filing of this Form 4 shall not be construed as an admission that Anson Funds Management LP ("Anson"), Anson Management GP LLC, the general partner of Anson ("Anson GP"), Bruce R. Winson, the manager of Anson GP, Anson Advisors Inc. ("Anson Advisors"), Adam Spears, a director of Anson Advisors, or Moez Kassam, a director of Anson Advisors, is or was for the purposes of Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise the beneficial owner of any of the Common Stock, $0.001 par value (the "Common Stock"), of School Specialty, Inc. (the "Issuer") purchased by private investment funds advised by Anson and Anson Advisors (the "Funds"). Pursuant to Rule 16a-1, all of Anson, Anson GP, Mr. Winson, Anson Advisors, Mr. Spears and Mr. Kassam disclaim such beneficial ownership.
