This communication contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the federal securities laws, including Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. In this context, forward-looking statements often address future business and financial events, conditions, expectations, plans or ambitions, and often contain words such as “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “seek,” “see,” “will,” “would,” “target,” similar expressions, and variations or negatives of these words, but not all forward-looking statements include such words. Forward-looking statements by their nature address matters that are, to different degrees, uncertain, such as statements about the consummation of the Proposed Transaction and the anticipated benefits thereof. All such forward-looking statements are based upon current plans, estimates, expectations, and ambitions that are subject to risks, uncertainties, and assumptions, many of which are beyond the control of the Company and NAYA, that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in such forward-looking statements. Important risk factors that may cause such a difference include, but are not limited to, the following: the completion of the Proposed Transaction on anticipated terms and timing, or at all, including obtaining regulatory approvals that may be required on anticipated terms, Company stockholder approval, and NAYA stockholder approval; anticipated tax treatment, unforeseen liabilities, future capital expenditures, revenues, expenses, earnings, synergies, economic performance, indebtedness, financial condition, losses, future prospects, business, and management strategies for the management, expansion, and growth of the combined company’s operations and other conditions to the completion of the Proposed Transaction, including the possibility that any of the anticipated benefits of the Proposed Transaction will not be realized or will not be realized within the expected time period; the ability of the Company and NAYA to integrate the business successfully and to achieve anticipated synergies and value creation; potential litigation relating to the Proposed Transaction that could be instituted against the Company, NAYA, or their respective directors; the risk that disruptions from the Proposed Transaction will harm the Company’s or NAYA’s business, including current plans and operations and that management’s time and attention will be diverted on transaction-related issues; potential adverse reactions or changes to business relationships resulting from the announcement or completion of the Proposed Transaction; legislative, regulatory and economic developments, including regulatory implementation of the Inflation Reduction Act, and other regulatory actions targeting public companies in the biotech industry and changes in local, national, or international laws, regulations, and policies affecting the Company and NAYA; potential business uncertainty, including the outcome of commercial negotiations and changes to existing business relationships during the pendency of the Proposed Transaction that could affect the Company’s and/or NAYA’s financial performance and operating results; certain restrictions during the pendency of the Proposed Transaction that may impact the Company’s or NAYA’s ability to pursue certain business opportunities or strategic transactions or otherwise operate its business; acts of terrorism or outbreak of war, hostilities, civil unrest, attacks against the Company or NAYA, and other political or security disturbances; dilution caused by the Company’s issuance of additional shares of Company common stock in connection with the Proposed Transaction; the possibility that the transaction may be more expensive to complete than anticipated, including as a result of unexpected factors or events; the impacts of pandemics or other public health crises, including the effects of government responses on people and economies; changes in technical or operating conditions, including unforeseen technical difficulties; those risks described in Item 1A of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the SEC on April 17, 2023; and those risks that will be described in the registration statement on Form S-4 and accompanying prospectus available from the sources indicated above.

These risks, as well as other risks associated with the Proposed Transaction, will be more fully discussed in the proxy statement/prospectus that will be included in the registration statement on Form S-4 that will be filed with the SEC in connection with the Proposed Transaction. While the list of factors presented here is, and the list of factors to be presented in the registration statement on Form S-4 will be, considered representative, no such list should be considered to be a complete statement of all potential risks and uncertainties. Unlisted factors may present significant additional obstacles to the realization of forward-looking statements.
