Item 4.  Purpose of Transaction

 

This statement relates to the acquisition of Shares by the Reporting Persons. The Shares acquired by the Reporting Persons were acquired for the purpose of making an investment in the Issuer and not with the intention of acquiring control of the Issuer’s business on behalf of the Reporting Persons’ respective advisory clients.

 

The Reporting Persons from time to time intend to review their investment in the Issuer on the basis of various factors, including the Issuer’s business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects, general economic and industry conditions, the securities markets in general and those for the Issuer’s Shares in particular, as well as other developments and other investment opportunities.  Based upon such review, the Reporting Persons will take such actions in the future as the Reporting Persons may deem appropriate in light of the circumstances existing from time to time.  If the Reporting Persons believe that further investment in the Issuer is attractive, whether because of the market price of Shares or otherwise, they may acquire Shares or other securities of the Issuer either in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions.  Similarly, depending on market and other factors, the Reporting Persons may determine to dispose of some or all of the Shares currently owned by the Reporting Persons or otherwise acquired by the Reporting Persons either in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions.

Item 5.  Interest in Securities of the Issuer

 

 (a) — (b) The following disclosure is based upon 41,882,995 outstanding Shares of the Issuer, as set forth in the Issuer’s Rule 424(b)(4) Prospectus filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on September 13, 2019 and giving effect to the additional 1,350,000 shares of common stock issued and sold by the Issuer to the underwriters pursuant to the underwriters’ option (according to the Form 8-K as filed by the issuer with the Securities and Exchange Commission on September 17, 2019).

 

As of the date of this filing, OPI VI, a limited partnership organized under the laws of Delaware, holds 7,406,307 Shares constituting approximately 17.1% of the issued and outstanding Shares.  OrbiMed GP is the sole general partner of OPI VI, pursuant to the terms of the limited partnership agreement of OPI VI, and OrbiMed Advisors is the sole managing member of OrbiMed GP, pursuant to the terms of the limited liability company agreement of OrbiMed GP.  As a result, OrbiMed Advisors and OrbiMed GP share power to direct the vote and disposition of the Shares held by OPI VI and may be deemed directly or indirectly, including by reason of their mutual affiliation, to be the beneficial owners of the Shares held by OPI VI.  Advisors exercises this investment and voting power through a management committee comprised of Carl L. Gordon, Sven H. Borho and Jonathan T. Silverstein, each of whom disclaims beneficial ownership of the Shares held by OPI VI.

(c) Except as disclosed in Item 3, the Reporting Persons have not effected any transactions during the past sixty (60) days in any Shares.

 

(d) Not applicable.

Registration Rights

Following the closing of the IPO, the holders of a certain number of Shares, or their transferees, will be entitled to the registration rights set forth below with respect to registration of the resale of such shares under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) pursuant to the Investors Rights Agreement.

 

Demand Registration Rights

 

At any time beginning six months following the date of the underwriting agreement of the IPO, the holders of at least 20% of the registrable securities then outstanding of the Issuer may make a written request that the Issuer register some or all of their registrable securities, subject to certain specified conditions and exceptions. If the anticipated aggregate offering price, net of selling expenses, would exceed five million dollars ($5,000,000), then the Issuer is required to use commercially reasonable efforts to effect the registration and will pay all registration expenses, other than underwriting discounts and commissions, related to any demand registration. The Issuer is not obligated to effect more than two of these registrations.

 

Piggyback Registration Rights

 

Whenever the Issuer proposes to file a registration statement under the Securities Act, OPI VI will be entitled to notice of the registration and have the right to include its shares in the registration.

 

Form S-3 Registration Rights

 

Pursuant to the Investor Rights Agreement, at any time after the Issuer is qualified to file a registration statement on Form S-3 under the Securities Act, and subject to limitations and conditions specified in the Investors Rights Agreement, the holders of at least 20% of the registrable securities then outstanding of the Issuer may make a written request that the Issuer prepare and file a registration statement on Form S-3 covering their shares, so long as the aggregate price to the public equal or exceeds $2,000,000. The Issuer is not obligated to effect more than two of these Form S-3 registrations in any 12-month period.

 

Lock-Up Agreement

The Investor Rights Agreement provides that, subject to limited exceptions, OPI VI will not, during the period ending 180 days after the date of the IPO (the “Lock-Up Period” ), directly or indirectly (1) sell, assign, transfer, pledge, contract to sell, or otherwise dispose of, any Shares or securities convertible into or exercisable or exchangeable for Shares with respect to which OPI VI has or acquires the power of disposition or (2) enter into any swap or other agreement that transfers, in whole or in part, the economic risk of ownership of any such Shares.

 

After the Lock-Up Period expires, the Reporting Persons’ Shares will be eligible for sale in the public market, subject to any applicable limitations under Rule 144 under the Securities Act, and other applicable U.S. securities laws.
