On February 1, 2021, the Company entered into a Sales Agreement (the “Sales Agreement”) with A.G.P./Alliance Global Partners, as sales agent (the “Sales Agent”), pursuant to which the Company may offer and sell through or to the Sales Agent (the “Offering”) up to $20.0 million in shares of its common stock (the “Shares”) at-the-market. Through February 12, 2021, the Company sold an aggregate of 15,406,618 shares of its common stock at-the-market pursuant to the Sales Agreement for aggregate net proceeds to the Company of approximately $19.3 million. Any Shares offered and sold in the Offering were issued pursuant to the Company’s universal shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (the “Shelf Registration Statement”) and the prospectus supplement relating to the Offering filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on February 1, 2021. The Offering will terminate upon (a) the election of the Agent upon the occurrence of certain adverse events, (b) 10 days’ advance notice from one party to the other, or (c) the sale of the Shares equating to $20 million.
