Item 4.Purpose of Transaction

 

The Reporting Persons acquired beneficial ownership of the Common Stock reported herein for investment purposes and such acquisitions were made in the Reporting Persons’ ordinary course of business and did not acquire the securities with any purpose, or with the effect, of changing or influencing the control of the Issuer, or in connection with or as a participant in any transaction having that purpose or effect. The Reporting Persons filed an initial Schedule 13G on January 21, 2022 (the “Schedule 13G”). The Reporting Persons are filing this Schedule 13D to supersede the Schedule 13G as a result of the Support Agreements (as defined and described below).

 

On January 8, 2023, the Issuer entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among the Issuer, AstraZeneca Finance and Holdings Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Parent”), and Cinnamon Acquisition, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (“Purchaser”). In connection with the Merger Agreement, each of Ventures VI, Opportunies and Opportunities II, along with each of the executive officers and directors of the Company and other certain large stockholders of the Issuer (collectively, the “Supporting Stockholders”) entered into Tender and Support Agreements with Parent (the “Support Agreements”). Under the terms of the Support Agreements, the Supporting Stockholders have agreed, among other things, to tender their shares in the tender offer to be conducted pursuant to the Merger Agreement, vote their shares in favor of the Merger at a special meeting of the Issuer’s stockholders, if there is one, and, subject to certain exceptions, not to transfer any of their shares.

Except as set forth in this Item 4 and Item 6 below, none of the Reporting Persons have a present plan or proposal that relates to or would result in any of the actions specified in clauses (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D of the Act. However, each of the Reporting Persons reserves the right to propose or participate in future transactions which may result in one or more of such actions, including but not limited to, an extraordinary corporate transaction, such as a merger, reorganization or liquidation, sale of a material amount of assets of the Issuer or its subsidiaries, or other transactions which might have the effect of causing the Common Stock to become eligible for termination of registration under Section 12(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Act”). The Reporting Persons also retain the right to change their investment intent at any time, to acquire additional shares of Common Stock or other securities of the Issuer from time to time, or to sell or otherwise dispose of all or part of the Common Stock beneficially owned by them (or any shares of Common Stock into which such securities are converted) in any manner permitted by law. The Reporting Persons may engage from time to time in ordinary course transactions with financial institutions with respect to the securities described herein.

 

The description of the Support Agreements herein is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Support Agreements, a form of which is filed herewith as Exhibit B and incorporated herein by reference.
