(the "Company"), the board of directors (the "Board") of the Company approved a board size increase from nine (9) to ten (10) members and appointed Ambika Kapur Gadre ("Ms. Kapur") to the newly created seat as a Class III director, effective immediately. The term of the Company’s Class III directors, including Ms. Kapur, expires at the annual meeting of stockholders to be held in 2022 or upon the election and qualification of successor directors.

VMware and the Company purchase software from each other based on arms-length agreements entered into in the ordinary course of business. Since the start of the Company's last fiscal year, VMware has been billed $356,488 for purchases of the Company's software, and the Company has purchased an aggregate of $178,863 of VMware software directly and through a reseller.

Ms. Kapur’s compensation will be consistent with that provided to all of the Company’s non-employee directors pursuant to the Company’s Non-Employee Director Compensation Policy, a copy of which policy is included as Exhibit 10.5 to the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended March 31, 2021. In addition, the Company entered into an indemnification agreement with Ms. Kapur in connection with her appointment to the Board, in substantially the same form as that entered into with the Company’s other directors.
