(“Yorkville”), pursuant to which the Company could sell to Yorkville up to $250.0 million of its shares of Common Stock at the Company’s request any time during the 36 months following the execution of the SEPA. The shares are purchased by Yorkville at a purchase price equal to 97.5% of the market price (as defined in the SEPA). In addition, the Company could also request one or more pre-advance loans (each, a “Pre-Advance Loan”) from Yorkville, pursuant to certain terms and conditions.

The Company currently intends to terminate the SEPA.
