3. (a.) Ownership Interests. This Question requires Respondents to enter detailed information about ownership interests by generating a series of subforms. Answer each question on each subform. The first subform listing should be for the Respondent itself. If the Respondent is not a natural person, also list each of the officers, directors, stockholders, noninsulated partners, members and other persons or entities with a direct attributable interest in the Respondent. (A "direct" interest is one that is not held through any intervening companies or entities.) In the case of vertical or indirect ownership structures, report only those interests in the Respondent that also represent an attributable interest in the Licensee for which the Report is being submitted.

List each person or entity with a direct attributable interest in the Respondent separately. Entities that are part of an organizational structure that includes holding companies or other forms of indirect ownership must file separate ownership reports. In such a structure do not report or file separate reports for persons or entities that do not have an attributable interest in the Licensee for which the report is being submitted.
