Vincent J. Coates, the Company's founder, is also selling 675,000 shares of common stock at a public offering price of $11.00 per share as part of the same offering. In connection with the offering, the Company and Mr. Coates have also granted the underwriters a 30-day over-allotment option to purchase up to an additional 303,750 and 101,250 shares of common stock from the Company and Mr. Coates, respectively.
