LLC (the “Underwriter”) to issue and sell 17,600,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”), of the Company, at a public offering price of $76.00 per share, in a public offering pursuant to a Registration Statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-238467) (the “Registration Statement”) and the related prospectus, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Offering”). In addition, the Company granted the Underwriter an option to purchase, for a period of 30 calendar days from May 18, 2020, up to an additional 2,640,000 shares of Common Stock.
