Also included in the offering are Series A warrants to purchase 3,742,500 shares
of Common Stock (the "Series A Warrants") and Series B warrants to purchase 2,495,000 shares of Common Stock (the "Series B Warrants") and, together with the Series A Warrants and the Pre-Funded Warrants, the "Warrants".

The shares of Common Stock or Pre-Funded Warrant, as applicable, and the Series A Warrants and Series B Warrants are immediately separable and will be issued separately, but will be purchased together.
Each Series A Warrant will have an initial exercise price of $0.84 per share of Common Stock, will be exercisable beginning on the issuance date and will expire five years after the first day they are exercisable.
Each Series B Warrant will have an initial exercise price of $0.92 per share of Common Stock, will be exercisable beginning on the issuance date and will expire two years after the first day they are exercisable.
