Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

Items 5(a) – (c) are hereby amended and restated to read as follows:

(a)       The aggregate percentage of Shares reported owned by each person named herein is based upon 98,580,189 Shares outstanding as of December 23, 2019, which is the total number of Shares outstanding as communicated by the Issuer to the Reporting Persons on December 23, 2019, adjusted for shares to be issued upon the exercise or conversion of preferred stock and Options.

As of the close of business on December 23, 2019, Broadfin Master beneficially owned 6,732,911 Shares, constituting approximately 6.8% of the Shares outstanding. Broadfin Capital, as the investment manager of Broadfin Master, may be deemed to beneficially own the 6,732,911 Shares owned by Broadfin Master, constituting approximately 6.8% of the Shares outstanding. Mr. Kotler, as the managing member of Broadfin Capital, may be deemed to beneficially own the 6,732,911 Shares owned by Broadfin Master, constituting approximately 6.8% of the Shares outstanding.

In connection with Mr. Kotler’s service on the Issuer’s board of directors, on August 1, 2018, Mr. Kotler received 96,247 RSUs and 48,123 Options which have vested and will vest, as described in Item 3, and over which he has assigned the economic benefit to Broadfin Master and the power to vote and dispose of the underlying Shares to Broadfin Capital.

Each Reporting Person, as a member of a “group” with the other Reporting Persons for the purposes of Section 13(d)(3) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, may be deemed the beneficial owner of the Shares directly owned by the other Reporting Persons. Each Reporting Person disclaims beneficial ownership of such Shares except to the extent of his or its pecuniary interest therein.

(b)       By virtue of their respective positions with Broadfin Master, each of Broadfin Capital and Mr. Kotler may be deemed to have shared power to vote and dispose of the Shares reported owned by Broadfin Master.
