In accordance with the pricing structure described in the prospectus relating to the rights offering, the final subscription price for the units offered (the “Units”) is $7.01 per Unit, which is the initial price established at commencement of the rights offering. Each Unit consisted of one share of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share, and 0.15 warrants to purchase shares of common stock. Each warrant will be exercisable for one share of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price that shall be equal to $7.01, the subscription price for the Units. Warrants are exercisable immediately and expire on the fifth anniversary of the completion of this rights offering.

Based on a preliminary tabulation by Broadridge Corporate Issuer Solutions, Inc.

Available Units will be allocated proportionately among rights holders who exercised their over-subscription right based on the number of Units each rights holder subscribed for under their basic subscription rights, in accordance with the procedures described in the prospectus relating to the rights offering. The common stock and warrants comprising the Units will separate upon the closing of the rights offering and will be issued individually. The Company expects the Subscription Agent to distribute such shares and warrants, as well as the sale proceeds, on or about June 11, 2020.

The Company will receive aggregate gross proceeds from the rights offering of $30 million, excluding proceeds of up to $4.5 million from the exercise of warrants issued in the rights offering (if any such exercises occur). The results of the rights offering are preliminary and subject to change pending finalization of subscription procedures by the Subscription Agent.

A registration statement, as amended, relating to the Units was previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and declared effective on May 8, 2020.
