In preparing the condensed consolidated financial statements as of and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, the Company identified errors in its previously issued financial statements whereby (a) certain expenses that were cost of subscription revenue related and cost of service revenue related were inaccurately classified as sales and marketing expenses on the consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss, (b) certain equipment under lease or held for lease was inaccurately classified as inventory on the consolidated balance sheets and a portion of the cash outflows related to the equipment under lease or held for lease were misclassified between operating and investing cash flows on the consolidated statements of cash flows, and (c) the vesting of warrants related to the Business Development Agreement disclosed in Note 16 were not accounted for accurately. The identified errors impacted the Company's previously issued 2020 annual financial statements, 2021 quarterly and annual financial statements, and quarterly financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2022. The Company has made adjustments to the prior period amounts presented in these financial statements accordingly.
