In connection with the pricing of the notes, the Company has entered into privately negotiated convertible note hedge transactions with one or more of the initial purchasers of the notes and/or their respective affiliates (the "hedge counterparties"). The convertible note hedge transactions will cover, subject to customary anti-dilution adjustments substantially similar to those applicable to the notes, the same number of shares of the Company's common stock that will initially underlie the notes, and are expected generally to reduce the potential dilution, and/or offset potential cash payments the Company is required to make in excess of the principal amount of converted notes, in each case, upon conversion of any of the notes. The Company has also entered into warrant transactions with the hedge counterparties relating to the same number of shares of the Company's common stock,

If the initial purchasers exercise their option to purchase additional notes, the Company may sell additional warrants and may use a portion of the proceeds from the sale of such additional notes, together with the proceeds from the sale of additional warrants, to enter into additional convertible note hedge transactions.
In connection with establishing their initial hedges of the convertible note hedge and warrant transactions, the hedge counterparties and/or their affiliates have advised the Company that they expect to purchase shares of the Company's common stock and/or enter into various derivative transactions with respect to the Company's common stock concurrently with or shortly after the pricing of the notes, including with certain investors in the notes. This activity could increase (or reduce the size of any decrease in) the market price of the Company's common stock or the notes at that time. The hedge counterparties and/or their affiliates may also modify their hedge positions by entering into or unwinding various derivatives with respect to the Company's common stock and/or purchasing or selling the Company's common stock in secondary market transactions prior to maturity of the notes (and are likely to do so following conversion of the notes, during any observation period related to a conversion of the notes or upon any repurchase of the notes). These hedging activities could have the effect of increasing (or reducing the size of any decrease in) the market price of the Company's common stock or the notes.
