The Company has also granted the Underwriters an over-allotment option to purchase up to an additional 6,500,250 shares of its common stock solely to cover over-allotments, if any, on the same terms and conditions as the Offering, including the offer price, exercisable at any time, in whole or in part, until 30 days after the date of the execution of the definitive agreement in respect of the Offering. If the over-allotment option is exercised in full, the aggregate gross proceeds from the Offering will be approximately US$149.5 million.
