Item5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of
Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory
Arrangements of Certain Officers.

Amended Change in Control and Severance
Agreements
.

On April17, 2017, we amended the Executive Severance Benefit
Agreements (the Amended Severance Agreements) with our named
executive officers, Joseph Jackson, Edgar Montes, Colm Callan,
and Kimberly Wilford. Each named executive officers Amended
Severance Agreement supersedes and replaces any and all prior
severance agreements by and between us and such named executive
officer, including any severance provisions of any offer letter,
severance agreement, employment agreement, and equity
compensation agreement. Each Amended Severance Agreement will
continue until amended or terminated.

Under the applicable Amended Severance Agreement, if, during the
period beginning on the date we execute the definitive agreement
for a change in control (as defined in the applicable Amended
Severance Agreement) and ending on the date that is 24 months
following the closing date of such change in control (such
period, the Change in Control Period), the named executive
officer has an involuntary termination (as defined in the
applicable Amended Severance Agreement), then, provided the named
executive officer timely executes and does not revoke a release
of claims and complies with his or her obligations under his or
her Proprietary Information and Inventions Assignment Agreement
(the PIIA), and complies with the non-solicitation provision in
the Amended Severance Agreement, such named executive officer
will receive the following benefits:

Continued payment of his or her base salary as then in effect
for 24 months for Mr. Jackson, 15 months for Mr. Montes, and
12 months for Mr. Callan and Ms. Wilford;
Reimbursement of COBRA premiums on a tax-neutral basis for
the named executive officer and his or her qualified
dependents for 18 months for Mr.Jackson, 15 months for
Mr.Montes, and 12 months for Mr.Callan and Ms.Wilford;
A lump sum amount equal to 50% (200% for Mr.Jackson) of the
annual target bonus in effect for the named executive officer
for the year in which the named executive officers
involuntary termination occurs; and
Accelerated vesting as to 50% of the named executive officers
unvested equity awards that are outstanding immediately prior
to the named executive officers involuntary termination.

Under the Amended Severance Agreements, if, outside of the Change
in Control Period, a named executive officer has an involuntary
termination, then, provided such named executive officer timely
executes and does not revoke a release of claims, complies with
his or her obligations under the named executive officers PIIA,
and complies with the non-solicitation provision in the named
executive officers Amended Severance Agreement, such named
executive officer will receive the following benefits:

Continued payment of his or her base salary as then in effect
for 18 months for Mr.Jackson, 15 months for Mr.Montes, or 12
months for Mr.Callan and Ms.Wilford; and
Reimbursement of COBRA premiums on a tax-neutral basis for
the named executive officer and his or her qualified
dependents for 18 months for Mr.Jackson, 15 months for
Mr.Montes, or 12 months for Mr.Callan and Ms.Wilford.
In the case of Mr.Jackson only:
An additional 18 months of vesting for all stock options that
are outstanding on the date of his involuntary termination
that are subject solely to time-based vesting; and
With regard to equity awards that (i)are eligible to vest, in
whole or in part, based on the achievement of one or more
performance metrics and (ii)were granted more than 12 months
before his involuntary termination, Mr.Jackson will be
eligible to vest in each award as to (x)the portion of such
award that otherwise would be eligible to vest based on
actual achievement of the relevant performance metrics during
the full performance period multiplied by (y)a fraction where
the numerator is the total number of calendar days between
the beginning of the applicable performance period and the
date of the involuntary termination and the denominator is
the total number of days in the performance period.

or

In the event his involuntary termination is due to his death
or incapacity (as defined in his Amended Severance
Agreements), then 50% of the unvested portion of each of his
equity awards will become immediately vested and exercisable.

Each Amended Severance Agreement provides that, if, outside of
the Change in Control Period, a named executive officer has an
involuntary termination, then, provided such named executive
officer timely executes and does not revoke a release of claims
and complies with his or her obligations under the named
executive officers PIIA, such named executive officer will
receive the following benefits:

Continued payment of his or her base salary as then in effect
for one month; and
Reimbursement of COBRA premiums on a tax-neutral basis for
the named executive officer and his or her qualified
dependents for one month.

If Mr.Jacksons employment with us terminates due to his death or
incapacity, then he will receive the severance benefits described
above, subject to complying with the terms and conditions
described above.

If the employment of Mr.Montes, Mr.Callan, or Ms.Wilford
terminates with us due to his or her death or incapacity (as
defined in the applicable Amended Severance Agreement) and such
named executive officer holds one or more unvested equity awards
immediately prior to such termination, then 50% of the unvested
portion of each of his or her equity awards will become
immediately vested and exercisable. In addition, he or she will
receive the COBRA reimbursements and corresponding tax
gross-up payments
described above, subject to compliance with the terms and
conditions described above.

If any of the
severance and other benefits provided for in an Amended Severance
Agreement or otherwise payable to a named executive officer (280G
Payments) constitute parachute payments within the meaning of
Section 280G of the Internal Revenue Code and could be subject to
excise tax under Section4999 of the Internal Revenue Code, then
the 280G Payments will be delivered in full or delivered as to
such lesser extent which would result in no portion of such
benefits being subject to excise tax, whichever results in the
greater amount of after-tax benefits to such
named executive officer. The Amended Severance Agreements do not
require us to provide any tax gross-up payment to any named
executive officer.

In addition, Mr.Jacksons
Amended Severance Agreement provides that he will continue to
serve as the chairman of our board of directors and our chief
executive officer. Mr.Jackson will continue to be paid a base
salary at the annualized rate of $750,000 and, for each year he
is employed by us, will be eligible to receive a cash bonus at a
target amount and dollar amount determined by the compensation
committee of our board of directors, but which target amount will
not be less than 50% of Mr.Jacksons base salary received during
such fiscal year. The actual bonus payable for each fiscal year
will depend on Mr.Jacksons performance and the extent to which
Mr.Jackson has achieved the performance goals established for him
for that year.

the Amended Severance Agreements does not purport to be complete
and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of
the Amended Severance Agreements. A copy of the Amended Severance
Agreement with Mr.Jackson is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this
