Item 1.02Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.

On November 3, 2020, the Company repaid in full all principal, accrued and unpaid interest, fees, costs and expenses owed under the Loan and Security Agreement, dated as of March 20, 2019 (the “Loan Agreement”), between the Company and Hercules Capital, Inc. (“Hercules”), in an aggregate amount of approximately $32.2 million (the “Payoff Amount”). The Loan Agreement was filed as Exhibit 10.1 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on March 21, 2019. The Company had previously borrowed an aggregate principal amount of $30 million under the Loan Agreement.

In connection with the payment of the Payoff Amount, the Loan Agreement, all liens or security interests granted to secure the obligations under the Loan Agreement and all guaranties of the obligations under the Loan Agreement terminated.

The payment of the Payoff Amount has not impacted the Company’s expectation that its existing cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities will enable it to fund its planned operating expenses and capital expenditure requirements into mid-2023.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
