As previously announced, the Annual Meeting will be held on Thursday, May 14, 2020 at 8:30 A.M., Pacific Time and online access to the live audio webcast of the Annual Meeting will begin at approximately 8:15 A.M. Pacific Time. Stockholders will not be able to attend the Annual Meeting in person.

Attending the Virtual Annual Meeting

As described in the proxy materials for the Annual Meeting, stockholders of record and beneficial owners as of the close of business on March 16, 2020 are entitled to attend and vote at the Annual Meeting. To attend the Annual Meeting, stockholders must register at www.proxydocs.com/FPRX before the deadline of 2:00 P.M., Pacific Time, on May 12, 2020.

As part of the registration process, you will be required to enter the control number that appears on your proxy card, voter instruction form, notice of internet availability of proxy materials, or previously received email. If you are a beneficial owner, you must obtain a legally valid proxy from your broker, bank or other agent and provide this proxy during the registration process. After completing your registration, you will receive further instructions via email, including unique links to the website where you can access the Annual Meeting and vote online during the Annual Meeting.

If you encounter difficulties accessing the Annual Meeting during check-in or during the Annual Meeting, please contact technical support as provided in the email instructions received after registration.

Voting Shares

We urge you to vote and submit your proxy in advance of the Annual Meeting by one of the methods described in the proxy materials even if you do not plan on attending the Annual Meeting.

Proxies that have already been returned by stockholders will remain valid and will be voted at the Annual Meeting unless revoked.

If you have not already voted your shares in advance, you will be able to vote your shares electronically during the Annual Meeting by following the email instructions received after registration. You are not required to attend the Annual Meeting to vote your shares by proxy.

The proxy card or voter instruction form included with the proxy materials previously distributed will not be updated to reflect the change to a virtual-only Annual Meeting and may continue to be used to vote your shares in connection with the Annual Meeting.
