This criterion is met by all current Board Members being external
directors (i.e. not managers or employees of SIGA) and by
having each Board member complete and sign code of conduct
acknowledgement and conflict of interest disclosure forms. All
Directors have completed COI forms on file. Section 1(d) does
not apply to SIGA, as SIGA does not have share capital, and is
not an issuer.
