On September 2, 2020, certain of the Reporting Persons entered into the Amended and Restated Investors’ Rights Agreement (the “IRA”) with the Issuer and the other signatories thereto. The IRA provides certain holders of the Issuer’s capital stock with certain registration rights, including the right to demand that the Issuer file a registration statement or request that their shares be covered by a registration statement that the Issuer is otherwise filing. In addition to registration rights, the IRA provides for certain information rights, a right of first offer and a market stand-off provision imposing restrictions on the ability of the parties thereto to offer, sell or transfer our equity securities for a period of 180 days following the date of the IPO. The IRA will terminate pursuant to its terms immediately prior to the completion of the IPO, other than those provisions relating to registration rights, which will terminate no later than three years after the completion of the IPO, the closing of a deemed liquidation event (as defined in the Issuer’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation) or, with respect to any particular holder, at such time that such holder can sell its shares, under Rule 144 or another similar exemption under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, during any three-month period without registration. The foregoing description of the IRA does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the IRA, a copy of which is referenced as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.

On April 17, 2021, certain of the Reporting Persons entered into the Exchange Agreement (the “Exchange Agreement”) with the Issuer and the other signatories thereto, pursuant to which the Issuer agreed to issue, immediately prior to the closing of the IPO, newly issued shares of its non-voting common stock in exchange for outstanding shares of its Preferred Stock (as defined below), in an amount such that shares held by such holder, including any shares purchased in the IPO and Shares issued upon the conversion of the Issuer’s Preferred Stock, will result in such holder beneficially owning not more than 9.99% of Shares as of immediately following the closing of the IPO (the “Beneficial Ownership Limitation”). The foregoing description of the Exchange Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Exchange Agreement, a copy of which is referenced as Exhibit 99.2 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.

No Reporting Person has any present plan or proposal which would relate to or result in any of the matters set forth in subparagraphs (a) - (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D except as set forth herein or such as would occur upon or in connection with completion of, or following, any of the actions discussed herein. The Reporting Persons intend to review their investment in the Issuer on a continuing basis. Depending on various factors including, without limitation, the Issuer’s financial position, the Reporting Persons’ investment strategies, the price levels of the Shares, conditions in the securities markets and general economic and industry conditions, the Reporting Persons may in the future take such actions with respect to their investment in the Issuer as they deem appropriate including, without limitation, engaging in additional communications with management and the Board, engaging in discussions with stockholders of the Issuer and others about the Issuer and the Reporting Persons’ investment, making proposals to the Issuer concerning changes to the capitalization, ownership structure, Board structure (including Board composition) or operations of the Issuer, purchasing additional Shares, selling some or all of their Shares, engaging in short selling of or any hedging or similar transaction with respect to the Shares, or changing their intention with respect to any and all matters referred to in Item 4.

Item 5.Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

(a)       The aggregate percentage of Shares reported owned by each person named herein is based on 18,241,690 Shares outstanding, which is the total number of Shares outstanding following the Issuer’s IPO as disclosed in the Issuer’s Prospectus on Form 424(b)(4) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 23, 2021 (the “Prospectus”) and certain or all of the 301,962 Shares that would be issued upon conversion of certain shares of non-voting common stock.
