On April 27, 2018, ADMA Biologics, Inc. (the “Company”) filed a definitive proxy statement (the “Proxy Statement”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Goldstein, M.D., Bryant E. Fong and Lawrence P. Guiheen. In all other respects, the table and related footnotes were correct as filed. The corrected table appears below with the footnotes that were provided with the original table.
