Introductory Note

 

This Amendment No. 2 to Schedule 13D (this “Amendment No. 2”) amends and supplements the statement on Schedule 13D filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 22, 2019, as amended by the Amendment No. 1 thereto filed with the SEC on July 15, 2019 (as amended, the “Original Schedule 13D”).

 

This Amendment No. 2 is being filed to amend Items 4, 5 and 6, as follows.

 

This Amendment No. 2 is filed jointly by the undersigned Reporting Persons (as defined in Item 2 of the Original Schedule 13D). All disclosure for items contained in the Original Schedule 13D is incorporated herein by reference, subject to the amended and additional information provided for such item in this Amendment No. 2. Capitalized terms used and not defined herein shall have the meanings given to such terms in the Original Schedule 13D.

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction

 

Item 4 is hereby supplemented as follows:

 

On September 11, 2019, SVF Bluebird sold 4,900,000 shares of Common Stock at a price per share of $77 (the “Sale”). This Amendment No. 2 relates to the Sale.

 

The last two paragraphs of Item 4 are hereby amended and restated as follows:

 

The Reporting Persons may further purchase, hold, vote, trade, dispose of or otherwise deal in the Common Stock at such times, and in such manner, as they deem advisable to benefit from changes in the market prices of such Common Stock, changes in the Issuer’s operations, business strategy or prospects, or from a sale or merger of the Issuer or otherwise. To evaluate such alternatives, the Reporting Persons will routinely monitor the Issuer’s operations, prospects, business development, management, competitive and strategic matters, capital structure, and prevailing market conditions, as well as alternative investment opportunities, liquidity objectives and other investment considerations. Furthermore, in their capacity as a significant shareholder, the Reporting Persons will from time to time discuss various matters with management and directors of the Issuer, other shareholders, industry analysts, existing or potential strategic partners or competitors, investment and financing professionals, sources of credit and other investors.

 

The Reporting Persons have no current intention to propose changes in the Issuer’s operations, governance or capitalization, or to propose one or more of the other actions described in subsections (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D. However, the Reporting Persons reserve the right to formulate other plans and/or make other proposals, and take such actions with respect to their investment in the Issuer, including any or all of the actions set forth in paragraphs (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D, or to acquire additional shares of Common Stock or dispose of all the Common Stock beneficially owned by them, in the public market, in privately negotiated transactions (which may be with the Issuer or with third parties) or otherwise, subject to any applicable restrictions or lock-up agreements. The Reporting Persons may at any time reconsider and change their plans or proposals relating to the foregoing.
