For your convenience, we have set out the text of the comment from the Comment Letter in bold text followed by our response.
In connection with this letter, we intend to file an amendment to the Registration Statement (“Amendment No. 1”) on the date hereof. Capitalized terms used and not otherwise defined in this letter have the meanings ascribed to them in the Registration Statement.
Registration Statement on Form S-1 filed November 12, 2020
1. It appears you are registering the primary issuance of shares of common stock that are issuable upon the exercise of the BGL warrants. Please note that a transaction that commenced privately cannot be converted to a registered offering. Please advise us of the exercise provisions of the warrants referenced above. If you do not believe the warrants were immediately exercisable (i.e., within one year) when issued privately, please explain why. Refer to Securities Act Sections Compliance and Disclosure Interpretations Questions 103.04 and 134.02.

Response: The Company is not registering the primary issuance of the shares of common stock that are issuable upon the exercise of the BGL warrants. To state this more clearly, the Company has revised footnote (2) to the fee table on the cover page of the Registration Statement in Amendment No. 1.

We hope that the foregoing, and the revisions to the Registration Statement, have been responsive to the Staff’s comment. Please direct any questions or comments regarding this letter to me at (216) 861-7564 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Very truly yours,
|/s/ Janet A. Spreen|
