Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

 

Item 5 is hereby amended in its entirety as follows:

 

The Reporting Persons may be deemed to beneficially own, in the aggregate, 27,586,272 shares of Common Stock, consisting of (i) 27,509,203 shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of 27,509,203 shares of Series B Preferred Stock beneficially owned by the Reporting Persons, and (ii) 77,069 shares of Common Stock underlying vested, deferred stock units resulting from restricted stock unit awards previously granted by the Issuer to Nana Banerjee in 2021 in respect of director fees and assigned by Dr. Banerjee to Cerberus (the “Deferred Stock Units”). The Series B Preferred Stock is convertible into shares of Common Stock at any time at the holder’s option, based on a conversion rate subject to certain adjustments, including for anti-dilution and accrued dividends (which accrue at 7.5% per annum), determined in the manner set forth in the Certificate of Designations.

 

The 27,586,272 shares of Common Stock referred to above are based upon a conversion rate of the Series B Preferred Stock equal to 1:1 as of June 30, 2022, and represent approximately 23.3% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock, based upon 90,705,342 shares of Common Stock outstanding as of May 6, 2022, as reported by the Issuer in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2022, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 10, 2022, and as calculated pursuant to Rule 13d-3 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”).

 

As a result of the Stockholders Agreement, the Reporting Persons may be deemed to be members of a group with the parties to the Stockholders Agreement under Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act. Please refer to the separate Schedule 13Ds (and any amendments thereto) that have been or may be filed by Charter and Qurate with respect to their beneficial ownership of Common Stock. Neither the filing of this Statement nor any of its contents shall be deemed to constitute an admission by any Reporting Person that, except as expressly set forth herein, it has or shares beneficial ownership of any shares of Common Stock held by any other person for purposes of Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act or for any other purpose, and such beneficial ownership thereof is expressly disclaimed.

 

Pine and Cerberus have the sole power to vote or to direct the voting of and the sole power to dispose or direct the disposition of the 27,509,203 shares of Common Stock underlying the Series B Preferred Stock, and Cerberus has the sole power to vote or to direct the voting of and the sole power to dispose or direct the disposition of the 77,069 shares of Common Stock underlying the Deferred Stock Units, subject in each case to the restrictions described in Item 6.

 

Except as set forth herein, no Reporting Person, or to the knowledge of the Reporting Persons, any other individual named in Item 2, has effected any transaction in the Common Stock in the 60 days preceding the date hereof.

 

No other person has the right to receive or the power to direct the receipt of dividends from, or the proceeds from the sale of, the securities described in this Statement.
