Under the ATM equity offering sales agreement, sales of common stock, if any, through Cowen, will be made at market prices by any method that is deemed to be an “at the market” offering as defined in Rule 415 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, including sales made directly on the NYSE MKT and any other trading market for the common stock, and sales to or through a market maker other than on an exchange.
