Item 5.
Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

(a)
NEA 13 is the record owner of the NEA 13 Shares.  As the sole general partner of NEA 13, NEA Partners 13 may be deemed to own beneficially the NEA 13 Shares.  As the sole general partner of NEA Partners 13, NEA 13 LTD may be deemed to own beneficially the NEA 13 Shares.  As members of NEA 13 LTD, each of the Directors may be deemed to own beneficially the NEA 13 Shares.

Each Reporting Person disclaims beneficial ownership of the NEA 13 Shares other than those shares which such person owns of record.

The percentage of outstanding Common Stock of the Issuer which may be deemed to be beneficially owned by each Reporting Person is set forth on Line 13 of such Reporting Person's cover sheet.  Such percentage was calculated based on the 40,774,123 shares of Common Stock reported to be outstanding immediately after the Offering on the Issuer's prospectus supplement filed under Rule 424(b)(5), filed with the Securities Exchange Commission on December 12, 2018.

(b)
Regarding the number of shares as to which such person has:

(i)
sole power to vote or to direct the vote: See line 7 of cover sheets

(ii)
shared power to vote or to direct the vote: See line 8 of cover sheets

(iii)
sole power to dispose or to direct the disposition: See line 9 of cover sheets

(iv)
shared power to dispose or to direct the disposition: See line 10 of cover sheets

(c)
Except as set forth in Item 3 above, none of the Reporting Persons has effected any transaction in the Common Stock during the last 60 days.

(d)
No other person is known to have the right to receive or the power to direct the receipt of dividends from, or any proceeds from the sale of, Shares beneficially owned by any of the Reporting Persons.

(e)
Each of Barrett and Viswanathan has ceased to own beneficially five percent (5%) or more of the Issuer's Common Stock as a result of ceasing to be a Director of NEA 13 LTD.


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

NEA 13 has entered into a lock-up agreement with the underwriters of the Offering pursuant to which NEA 13 has generally agreed, subject to certain exceptions, not to offer, sell, contract to sell, pledge or otherwise dispose of, directly or indirectly, any shares of the Issuer's common stock or securities convertible into or exchangeable or exercisable for any shares of the Issuer's common stock, enter into a transaction that would have the same effect, or enter into any swap, hedge or other arrangement that transfers, in whole or in part, any of the economic consequences of ownership of the Issuer's common stock, whether any of these transactions are to be settled by delivery of the Issuer's common stock or other securities, in cash or otherwise, or publicly disclose the intention to make any offer, sale, pledge or disposition, or to enter into any transaction, swap, hedge or other arrangement, for a period of 90 days from December 12, 2018 without, in each case, the prior written consent of Jefferies LLC, BMO Capital Markets Corp. and Stifel, Nicolaus & Company, as the representatives of the underwriters.
