Item 6. Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings or Relationships with Respect to Securities of the Issuer

The information set forth or incorporated in Items 3, 4 and 5 are incorporated by reference in its entirety into this Item 6.

Investors’ Rights Agreement

Northpond LP, and Northpond II LP and certain other holders of the Issuer’s Common Stock are party to an Amended and Restated Investors’ Rights Agreement with the Issuer (the “Investors’ Rights Agreement”), which provides that Northpond LP and certain other investors with the right to demand that the Issuer file a registration statement or request that their shares of the Issuer’s capital stock be covered by a registration statement that the Issuer otherwise files, in each case as described below.


Demand Registration Rights

Beginning 180 days after the completion of the Issuer’s initial public offering, if the holders of a majority of the then-outstanding registrable securities (or a lesser percent if the anticipated aggregate offering price of such shares to be registered, net of underwriting discounts and commissions, would exceed $7,500,000), request the registration under the Securities Act of such holders’ registrable securities, the Issuer is obligated to provide notice of such request to all holders of registration rights and, as expeditiously as possible, file a Form S-1 registration statement under the Securities Act covering all registrable securities that the initiating holders requested to be registered and any additional registrable securities requested to be included in such registration by any other holders. The Issuer is only required to file two registration statements that are declared effective upon exercise of these demand registration rights. The Issuer may postpone taking action with respect to such filing not more than once during any 12-month period for a period of not more than 90 days, if after receiving a request for registration, it furnishes to the holders requesting such registration a certificate signed by its Chief Executive Officer stating that, in the good faith judgment of its board of directors, it would be seriously detrimental to the Issuer and its stockholders.

Form S-3 Registration Rights

The holders of at least $2.0 million in aggregate principal amount of the then-outstanding registrable securities can request that the Issuer register all or part of their shares on Form S-3 if the Issuer is eligible to file a registration statement on Form S-3. The stockholders may only require the Issuer to effect two registration statements on Form S-3 in a 12-month period. The Issuer may postpone taking action with respect to such filing not more than once during any 12-month period for a period of not more than 90 days, if after receiving a request for registration, it furnishes to the holders requesting such registration a certificate signed by its Chief Executive Officer stating that, in the good faith judgment of its board of directors, it would be seriously detrimental to the Issuer and its stockholders.

Piggyback Registration Rights

If the Issuer registers any of its securities for public sale in cash, holders of then-outstanding registrable securities or their permitted transferees will have the right to include their registrable securities in the registration statement. However, this right does not apply to a registration relating to any of the Issuer’s employee benefit plans, a corporate reorganization or transaction under Rule 145 of the Securities Act, a registration that requires information that is not substantially the same as the information required to be included in a registration statement covering the sale of the registrable securities, or a registration in which the only common stock being registered is common stock issuable upon conversion of debt securities that are also being registered or issuable upon the exercise of warrants. In an underwritten offering, if the total number of securities requested by stockholders to be included in the offering exceeds the number of securities to be sold (other than by the Issuer) that the underwriters determine in their reasonable discretion is compatible with the success of the offering, then the Issuer will be required to include only that number of securities that the underwriters and the Issuer, in their sole discretion, determine will not jeopardize the success of the offering. If the underwriters determine that less than all the registrable securities requested to be registered can be included in the offering, the number of registrable shares to be registered will be allocated among holders of the Issuer’s registrable securities, in proportion to the amount of registrable securities owned by each such holder. However, the number of shares to be registered by holders of registrable securities cannot be reduced unless all other securities (other than as offered by the Issuer) are first entirely excluded. The number of registrable securities included in the offering may not be reduced below 20% of the total number of securities included in such offering, except for in connection with an initial public offering, in which case the underwriters may exclude these holders entirely.

Expenses of Registration Rights

The Issuer generally will pay all expenses, other than underwriting discounts and selling commissions incurred in connection with each of the registrations described above, including the reasonable fees and disbursements of one counsel for the selling holders.


Expiration of Registration Rights

The registration rights described above will expire, with respect to any particular holder of these rights, on the earliest to occur of (i) upon a deemed liquidation event, as defined in the Issuer’s certificate of incorporation or (ii) upon the third anniversary of the completion of this offering.

The foregoing description of the Investors’ Rights Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Investor’s Rights Agreement filed as Exhibit B to this Schedule 13D and incorporated herein by reference.

Lock Up Agreement

On July 2, 2021, Northpond LP entered into a Lock-up Agreement (the “Lock-up Agreement”) with BofA Securities, Inc., SVB Leerink LLC and Evercore Group L.L.C., as representatives of the underwriters of the Issuer’s initial public offering. Pursuant to the Lock-up Agreement, Northpond LP agreed, subject to certain exceptions, not to dispose of or hedge any of the Common Stock or securities convertible into or exchangeable for shares of Common Stock during the period of 180 days following the date of the prospectus for the Issuer’s initial public offering, except with the prior consent of BofA Securities, Inc., SVB Leerink LLC and Evercore Group L.L.C.

The foregoing description of the Lock-up Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Lock-up Agreement filed as Exhibit C to this Schedule 13D and incorporated herein by reference.
