ITEM 2   Identity and Background

a)	and c)

This statement is filed by:

Both SIA and SFI are parties to a Joint Filing Agreement as further
described in Exhibit B to the initial Schedule 13D filed by SIA and SFI on
March 18, 2015.

SIA is a registered investment adviser.
SFI is a registered investment adviser and subsidiary of SIA.

SIA or SFI serves as investment adviser on behalf of its clients pursuant
to investment management agreements with each of its clients which give
SIA or SFI full discretionary authority to direct the investments of its
client in accordance with the investment objectives and restrictions of
the client.  The investment management agreements also provide that SIA or
SFI has assumed the responsibility to vote on behalf of its clients all
shares held by its clients in accounts managed by SIA or SFI.

Mr. Roger J. Sit is chairman and CEO of SIA and SFI.
Mr. Ronald D. Sit is a vice president of SIA and director.

By virtue of these positions, each of SIA, SFI, Mr. Roger Sit, and Mr.
Ronald Sit may be deemed to beneficially own the Shares held by SIA and
SFI.  None of the named individuals own shares directly.  Together SIA,
SFI, Mr. Roger Sit, and Mr. Ronald Sit are the "Sit Entities".

judgment, decree, or final order enjoining future violations of, or
prohibiting or mandating activities subject to, federal or state
securities laws or finding any violation with respect to such laws.

f) Roger J. Sit and Ronald D. Sit are United States citizens.





ITEM 3   Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration

The Sit Entities acquired the Issuer's Shares in open market transactions
with client funds held in custody accounts managed by SIA and SFI.

ITEM 4   Purpose of Transaction

The Sit Entities have acquired the Issuer's Shares for investment purposes,
and such purchases have been made in the ordinary course of business.  The
Issuer's Shares have been acquired on behalf of SIA's and SFI's clients.

In pursuing such investment purposes, the Sit Entities purchased the Shares
based on the Sit Entities' belief that the Shares represented an attractive
investment opportunity, and the Sit Entities may further purchase, hold,
vote, trade, sell or otherwise deal in the Shares at the time, and in such
manner, as they deem advisable to benefit from, among many things, changes in
market prices of such Shares, the market prices of such Shares relative to
the value of the Issuer's assets, changes in the Issuer's investment
strategy, and composition of the Issuer's portfolio.

None of Sit Entities have any present plan or proposal which would relate to
or result in any of the matters set forth in subparagraphs (a) - (j) of Item
4 of Schedule 13D except as set forth herein or such as would occur upon or
in connection with completion of, or following, any of the actions discussed
herein.

The Sit Entities intend to review their investment in the Issuer's Shares on
a continuing basis and may from time to time engage in discussion with
management, the Board of Directors and shareholders concerning, among other
things, the Issuer's performance, the market prices of the Issuer's Shares
relative to the value of the Issuer's assets, the Issuer's investment
strategy and the Issuer's portfolio holdings.

ITEM 5   Interest in Securities of the Issuer

a)	and b)

The aggregate percentage of Shares reported owned by Sit Entities herein
is based upon 4,213,115 Shares outstanding as of June 22, 2022, which is
the total number of Shares outstanding as reported on the Issuer's
website.  Certain clients of SIA and SFI purchased or sold Shares of the
Issuer since the last 13D filing, resulting in a greater than 1% change in
ownership of the Issuer by the Sit Entities.

As of the date hereof, the Sit Entities may be deemed to be the beneficial
owner of 1,774,790 Shares held in client accounts which represent 42.13%
of the Issuer's outstanding Shares. Each of the Sit Entities may be deemed
to have shared power to vote and dispose of such Shares.  However, none of
SIA's or SFI's directors or executive officers own Shares directly.

c)	Transactions in Shares by the Sit Entities in the last 60 days are set
forth in Exhibit A.

d) The clients of SIA and SFI have the right to participate in the receipt of
dividends from, or proceeds from the sales of, the Shares held for their
respective accounts.
