Explanation of Responses:

* If the form is filed by more than one reporting person, see Instruction 4(b)(v).
** Intentional misstatements or omissions of facts constitute Federal Criminal Violations. See 18 U.S.C. 1001 and 15 U.S.C. 78ff(a).
(1) This amended Form 4 is being filed to correct an administrative error that resulted in an erroneous Form 4 being filed which incorrectly reported the Reporting Person's beneficial ownership following the July 13, 2022 vesting of 16,666 performance-based restricted stock units ("PSUs") previously awarded to the Reporting Person on August 12, 2021 under the Issuer's employee equity plan. There was only one transaction for the Reporting Person to report on July 15, 2022 - the vesting of 16,666 PSUs on July 13, 2022, the second Form 4 was filed in error, and the Reporting Person was not the beneficial owner of 50,416 restricted stock units of the Issuer following the reported transaction. Accordingly, this amended Form 4 is being filed solely to correctly report that, immediately following the vesting of 16,666 PSUs as of July 13, 2022, the Reporting Person was the beneficial owner of 46,666 restricted stock units of the Issuer.

Note: File three copies of this Form, one of which must be manually signed. If space is insufficient, see Instruction 6 for procedure.
