b.You acknowledge that the Company is not entering into this Agreement because it believes that you have any cognizable legal claim against any of the Company Released Parties. If you elect not to sign this Agreement, the fact that this Agreement was offered will not be understood as an indication that any of the Company Released Parties believed that you were treated unlawfully in any respect.
13.DEFEND TRADE SECRETS ACT. You are hereby provided notice that under the Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016 ("DTSA"): (a) no individual will be held criminally or civilly liable under federal or state trade secrets law for the disclosure of a trade secret (as defined in the Economic Espionage Act) that (i) is made in confidence to a federal, state or local government official, either directly or indirectly, or to an attorney, and made solely for the purpose of reporting or investigating a suspected violation of law, or (ii) is made in a complaint or other document filed in a lawsuit or other proceeding, if such filing is made under seal so that it is not made public; and (b) an individual who pursues a lawsuit for retaliation by an employer for reporting a suspected violation of the law may disclose the trade secret to such individual's attorney and use the trade secret information in the court proceeding, if the individual files any document containing the trade secret under seal and does not disclose the trade secret, except as permitted by court order. Nothing in this Agreement is intended to conflict with the DTSA or create liability for disclosures of trade secrets that are expressly allowed by such section. Further, it shall not be a violation of this Agreement for you to (i) provide testimony or access to confidential information in response to a valid subpoena, court order, regulatory request, or other legal process; provided, however, before making any such disclosure, other than to any governmental agency or regulatory authority or any self-regulatory organization, you shall give the Company written notice of your intended disclosure and afford the Company a reasonable opportunity to protect the Company's interests, or (ii) participate in any investigation or proceeding that may be conducted by any governmental agency or regulatory authority or any self-regulatory organization.
14.CODE SECTION 409A COMPLIANCE.

For purposes of this Agreement, each amount to be paid or benefit to be provided shall be construed as a separate identified payment for purposes of Section 409A of the Code. It is intended that this Agreement shall comply with the provisions of Section 409A of the Code and
the Treasury Regulations relating thereto so as not to subject you to the payment of additional taxes and interest under Section 409A of the Code. In furtherance of this intent, the Agreement shall be interpreted, operated, and administered, and payments hereunder reported, in a manner consistent with these intentions. To the extent that any reimbursable expenses hereunder are deemed to constitute compensation to you, such expenses shall be paid or reimbursed promptly, but not later than by December 31 of the year following the year in which such expenses were incurred. The amount of such expenses eligible for reimbursement in one calendar year shall not affect the amount of expenses eligible for reimbursement in any other calendar year, and your right to reimbursement of any such expenses shall not be subject to liquidation or exchange for any other benefit.
15.ARBITRATION AND GOVERNING LAW.
a.For the avoidance of doubt, the Arbitration Agreement between you and the Company, dated December 5, 2017, shall remain in full force and effect.
b.This Agreement as well as any disputes and claims to be arbitrated under the Arbitration Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California without giving effect to any principles of conflict of laws that would lead to the application of the laws of another jurisdiction.
16.SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS. You agree that this Agreement (in whole or in part) will be binding upon, and pass to the benefit of, the successors and assigns of the Company.
17.AMENDMENTS. This Agreement may not be amended or modified other than by a written instrument signed by an authorized representative of both Parties.
18.COUNTERPARTS. This Agreement may be executed in two or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of which shall constitute one and the same instrument. Facsimile and .pdf signatures will suffice as original signatures.

20.SEVERABILITY. If any provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, such provision will be enforced to the maximum extent possible, given the fundamental intentions of the Parties when entering into this Agreement. To the extent
such provision cannot be so enforced, it will be stricken from this Agreement and the remainder of this Agreement will be enforced as if such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision had never been contained in this Agreement.
21.ENTIRE AGREEMENT. Except as otherwise provided herein, and except for the Confidentiality Agreement, dated January 2, 2018, and the Arbitration Agreement, dated December 5, 2017, the Company's 2016 Equity Incentive Plan (as amended), and the applicable award agreements between the Company and you made pursuant to, or consistent with, the terms of the Company's 2016 Equity Incentive Plan, each of which shall remain in full force and effect, this Agreement sets forth the entire agreement and understanding of the Parties relating to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior discussions, agreements, and understandings of every kind and nature between the Parties hereto and neither Party shall be bound by any term or condition other than as expressly set forth or provided for in this Agreement.

|Title: General Counsel, Corporate Secretary and Chief Compliance Officer|
|Date:||Date:||June 6, 2019|
All Company equity held by you as of the Resignation Date is set forth below:
|Grant Date||Grant Amount*||Grant Price||Early Exer-cisable?||Exer-cised||Vested||Unvested||Vest Start Date||Type||Vest Schedule|
1.For so long as Optionee continuously provides services to the Company (or any Subsidiary or Parent of the Company) as an employee, officer, director, contractor or consultant, the Shares subject to this Option will vest as follows: (a) prior to the first one (1) year anniversary of the Vesting Start Date, none of the Shares will be vested; (b) 1/4 of the Shares will be vested on the one (1) year anniversary of the Vesting Start Date; and (c) thereafter, this Option will become vested with respect to an additional 1/48 of the Shares when Optionee completes each month of continuous service following the first one (1) year anniversary of the Vesting Start Date.
2.Subject to the option holder's continuous service to the Company through the date of achievement of the relevant milestone, the shares subject to the option shall vest as follows:
(A)50% of the shares subject to the option will vest on each date that the Board of Directors or Compensation Committee determines that one of the following milestones has been achieved:
(i)the Company has completed an initial public offering of the Company's Class A common stock on a recognized United States or international stock exchange at an offering price to the public per share of at least $4.0085;
(ii)the Company's market capitalization, measured by the closing trading price of the Company's Class A common stock on a public trading exchange or such other mechanism(s) as the Board or Compensation Committee in good faith determines appropriate, exceeds $3 billion for a period of at least six consecutive months; and
(iii)the Company delivers and sells at least 50,000 tests of a multi-cancer diagnostic product on a single geographic continent (the "First Continent"); and
(B)100% of the shares subject to the option (or if applicable, all remaining shares) will vest on the date that the Board of Directors or Compensation Committee determines that one of the following milestones has been achieved:
(i)the Company has completed an initial public offering of the Company's Class A common stock on a recognized United States or international stock exchange at an offering price to the public per share corresponding to a pre-money valuation for the Company of at least $3 billion;
(ii)the Company's market capitalization, measured by the closing trading price of the Company's Class A common stock on a public trading exchange or such other mechanism(s) as the Board or Compensation Committee in good faith determines appropriate, exceeds $5 billion for a period of at least six consecutive months; and
(iii)the Company delivers and sells at least 50,000 tests of a multi-cancer diagnostic product on a single geographic continent in addition to the First Continent.
For clarity, the shares subject to the option may become vested through achievement of a combination of the milestones described in paragraphs (A) and (B) above. For example, achievement of two of the milestones described in paragraph (A) would result in vesting of 100% of the shares subject to the option, as would achievement solely of any one of the milestones described in paragraph (B).
