As a result of the Reverse Stock Split, every 22 shares of issued and outstanding common stock were, at the applicable time, combined and converted into one issued and outstanding share of common stock. The par value per share of Common Stock remains unchanged. The Reverse Split will not change the authorized number of shares of Common Stock or Preferred Stock. No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the Reverse Split. Conversely, stockholders who, immediately prior to the Effective Time, own a number of shares of Common Stock that is not evenly divided by the Reverse Split Stock Index will be entitled, in respect of such fractional interest, to receive a cash payment (without interest and subject to applicable withholding taxes) by the Company in lieu of such fractional interest in an amount equal to the product obtained by multiplying (i) the average closing price per share of the Common Stock as reported on the Nasdaq Stock Market for the five trading days preceding but not including the date of the Effective Time (with such average closing price adjusted to effect the Reverse Stock Split), equal to $11.28 per share of common stock and (ii) the fraction of a share of common stock to which the stockholder is otherwise entitled.

All outstanding awards of restricted stock units, warrants and other securities entitling their holders to purchase or otherwise receive shares of Common Stock will be adjusted as a result of the reverse split as required by their respective terms. The number of shares available to be awarded under the Company’s Amended 2020 Omnibus Stock Incentive Plan will also be adjusted accordingly.
