Response: The Company acknowledges the Staff’s Comment and has accordingly updated the disclosure on the cover page and on pages 1, 7, 73, 208, 215 and 217 of the Registration Statement.

Risk Factors, page 11



We note recent instances of extreme stock price run-ups followed by rapid price declines and stock price volatility seemingly unrelated to company performance following a number of recent initial public offerings, particularly among companies with relatively smaller public floats. Please revise to include a separate risk factor addressing the potential for rapid and substantial price volatility and any known factors particular to your offering that may add to this risk and discuss the risks to investors when investing in stock where the price is changing rapidly. Clearly state that such volatility, including any stock-run up, may be unrelated to your actual or expected operating performance and financial condition or prospects, making it difficult for prospective investors to assess the rapidly changing value of your stock.

Response: The Company acknowledges the Staff’s Comment and has accordingly updated the disclosure on pages 5, 74, and 75 of the Registration Statement.

Please contact me at (858) 550-6044 or Christine Kim at (858) 550-6110 with any questions or further comments regarding the Company’s response to the Staff’s Comments.
