Thomas W. Burns, President and Chief Executive Officer, Chris M. Calcaterra, Chief Operating Officer, and Joseph E. Gilliam, Chief Financial Officer and Senior Vice President, Corporate Development) and (ii) each of the Company’s non-employee directors (Mr. William J. Link, Ph.D., Mr. Mark J. Foley, Mr. Marc A.

We also anticipate entering into the Updated Form Indemnification Agreement with any new executive officers and directors. Pursuant to the Updated Form Indemnification Agreement, among other things and subject to certain exceptions, the Company will continue to indemnify and advance certain expenses and costs incurred by each Indemnitee in connection with any threatened, pending or completed proceeding arising by reason of his or her service as a director or officer, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.
The Updated Form Indemnification Agreement supersedes the previously existing form indemnification agreement entered into between the Company and the Indemnitees, which was filed as Exhibit 10.8 to the Company’s Registration Statement on Form S-1 filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on May 12, 2015. The Board adopted the Updated Form Indemnification Agreement to, among other things, incorporate certain updates that reflect market indemnification practices and clarify the scope of the Indemnitees’ rights under the agreement and certain procedural and other requirements related to requests for indemnification.
