The number of shares of Common Stock available for issuance under the 2014 Plan is subject to an automatic annual increase on January 1 of each year beginning in 2015 and ending on (and including) January 1, 2024, equal to the greater of (i) seven percent (7%) of the total number of shares of Common Stock outstanding on December 31st of the preceding calendar year, or (ii) the difference between (x) twenty percent (20%) of the total number of shares of Common Stock outstanding on December 31st of the preceding calendar year, and (y) the total number of shares of Common Stock reserved under the 2014 Plan on December 31st of such preceding calendar year (including shares subject to outstanding Awards (as defined in the 2014 Plan), issued pursuant to Awards or available for future Awards), or a lesser number of shares of Common Stock determined by the board of directors of the Company (the “Evergreen Provision”). This Registration Statement registers an aggregate of 1,815,683 additional shares of Common Stock available for issuance under the 2014 Plan as a result of the Evergreen Provision.
