The sale was consummated on October 9, 2020.

Pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, SVF Bluebird agreed that, subject to specified exceptions, without the prior written consent of the Underwriter, it will not, during the period ending 90 days after the date of the final prospectus supplement with respect to the Offering: (i) offer, sell, contract to sell, pledge, grant any option to purchase, make any short sale or otherwise dispose of any shares of Common Stock, or any options or warrants to purchase any shares of Common Stock, or any securities convertible into, exchangeable for or that represent the right to receive shares of Common Stock; (ii) engage in any hedging or other transactions designed or intended to lead to or result in, or which could reasonably be expected to lead to or result in, a sale or disposition of any shares of Common Stock; or (iii) make any demand for, or exercise any right with respect to, the registration of SVF Bluebird’s Common Stock of the Issuer.

On October 8, 2020, the Underwriter notified the Issuer that it intends to exercise in full the option granted to it in the Underwriting Agreement by SVF Bluebird to purchase 700,000 additional shares of Common Stock (the “Option Exercise”).
