Explanation of Responses:
1. Represents restricted stock units ("RSUs") that vest on the earlier of (i) the one-year anniversary of May 31, 2019 (the "Grant Date") and (ii) the Issuer's next regularly scheduled annual meeting of stockholders that occurs following the Grant Date (the "Next Annual Meeting"), subject to the Reporting Person's continuous service as a non-employee director through such vesting date. Each RSU represents a contingent right to receive one share of Common Stock.
2. These shares are held directly by Longitude Venture Partners II, L.P. ("Longitude II"). Longitude Capital Partners II, LLC ("LCP2") is the general partner of Longitude II. The Reporting Person is a member of LCP2 and may be deemed to share voting and investment power over the shares of the Issuer held by Longitude II. The Reporting Person disclaims beneficial ownership of such shares except to the extent of his pecuniary interest therein, and this statement shall not be deemed an admission that the Reporting Person is a beneficial owner of such securities for purposes of Section 16 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or for any other purpose.
3. Subject to the Reporting Person's continuous service to the Issuer as a non-employee director through each vesting date, this option vests ratably on a monthly basis, on the monthly anniversary of May 31, 2019 ("Option Date"), over the one-year period following the Option Date so that the option shall be 100% vested and exercisable on the one-year anniversary of the Option Date ("Vesting Date"); provided, however, if the Next Annual Meeting occurs prior to the Vesting Date, then the option shall vest in full immediately prior to the Next Annual Meeting.
