CALCULATION OF FILING FEE
|Transaction Valuation*|| ||Amount of Filing Fee**|
|*||Estimated solely for purposes of calculating the amount of the filing fee. The calculation of the Transaction Valuation assumes that all stock options to purchase shares of the issuer’s common stock that may be eligible for exchange in this offer will be tendered pursuant to this offer. This calculation assumes that options to purchase an aggregate of 7.7 million shares of the issuer’s common stock, having an aggregate value of $3.1 million as of July 23, 2020, calculated based on a Black-Scholes option pricing model, will be exchanged or cancelled pursuant to this offer.|
The amount of the filing fee, calculated in accordance with Rule 0-11(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, equals $129.80 per $1,000,000 of the aggregate amount of the Transaction Valuation. The Transaction Valuation set forth above was calculated for the sole purpose of determining the filing fee and should not be used for any other purpose.
Check the box if any part of the fee is offset as provided by Rule 0-11(a)(2) and identify the filing with which the offsetting fee was previously paid. Identify the previous filing by registration statement number, or the Form or Schedule and the date of its filing.
