On January 25, 2022, the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”), upon recommendation by the Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board, confirmed and approved the FY 2021 Annual Incentive Bonuses for Marc de Garidel, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, Mary Theresa Coelho, M.B.A., the Company’s Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Business Development Officer, and Mason Freeman, M.D., the Company’s Executive Vice President, Clinical Development.

A narrative of the Summary Compensation Table is set forth in the section titled “Executive Compensation-Narrative to the Summary Compensation Table” in the Registration Statement, which is incorporated herein by reference.
