The Shares were sold at a public offering price of $17.50 per Share. Under the terms of the Underwriting Agreement, the Company granted the Underwriters the right, for 30 days, to purchase up to 642,857 additional shares of Common Stock.
The Offering was made under a prospectus supplement and related prospectus filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to the Company’s effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333-228693).
