SCHEDULE 13D

 

Item 2.

Identity and Background.

 

(a)

This Amendment No. 4 (“Amendment”) is filed by Longitude Venture Partners III, L.P. (“LVPIII”), Longitude Capital Partners III, LLC (“LCPIII”), Longitude Prime Fund, L.P. (“LPF”), Longitude Prime Partners, LLC (“LPP” and together with LVPIII, LCPIII and LPF, the “Reporting Entities”), Patrick G. Enright (“Enright”) and Juliet Tammenoms Bakker (“Tammenoms Bakker” and together with Enright, the “Managing Members”). This Amendment amends and supplements the Schedule 13D originally filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on November 25, 2019, as amended by Amendment No.1 filed with the SEC on February 10, 2020, Amendment No. 2 filed with the SEC on November 8, 2021 and Amendment No. 3 filed with the SEC on February 4, 2022 (collectively, the “Original Schedule 13D”). The Reporting Entities and the Managing Members are collectively referred to as the “Reporting Persons.” Joshua Richardson, a reporting person on the Original Schedule 13D, is no longer a member of LCPIII or LPP, and accordingly, is no longer a Reporting Person. The agreement among the Reporting Persons to file jointly in accordance with the provisions of Rule 13d-1(k)(1) under the Act is attached to the Original Schedule 13D as Exhibit 1. Each Reporting Person disclaims beneficial ownership of all securities reported in this Statement except to the extent of such Reporting Person’s pecuniary interest therein, other than those securities reported herein as being held directly by such Reporting Person. Only those items that are hereby reported are amended; all other items reported in the Original Schedule 13D remain unchanged. Information given in response to each item shall be deemed incorporated by reference in all other items, as applicable. Capitalized terms not defined in this Amendment have the meanings ascribed to them in the Original Schedule 13D.

 

Item 5.

Item 5 of the Original Schedule 13D is hereby amended to add the following language:

(a) and (b) See Items 7-11 of the cover pages of this Amendment and Item 2 above.

(c)
