On January 15, 2019, the Underwriters exercised the Option to purchase all of the Option Shares.

The Shares were offered (the “Common Stock Offering”) under a prospectus supplement and accompanying prospectus filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”), to the Company’s shelf registration statement on Form S-3ASR (File No. 333-224469) (the “Registration Statement”), which was automatically declared effective on April 26, 2018.

On January 17, 2019, the Company completed the sale of the Shares for total gross proceeds of approximately $140,829,000 before deduction of underwriting discounts and commissions and offering expenses payable by the Company. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the offering to acquire additional target assets as market conditions warrant and for general corporate purposes.
