If any SEC Guidance sets forth a limitation on the number of securities permitted to be registered on a particular registration statement (and notwithstanding that the Company used diligent efforts to advocate with the SEC for the registration of all or a greater portion of Registrable Securities), unless otherwise directed in writing by a Subscriber as to its Registrable Securities, the number of Registrable Securities to be registered on such registration statement will be reduced on a pro rata basis with such other securities being registered on the applicable registration after as full an allocation as possible has been afforded for the securities for which the registration statement has been filed.
(c) Subject to the terms and conditions of this Subscription Agreement, Subscribers shall have the right to select Legal Counsel to review and oversee, solely on its behalf, any Registration Statement pursuant to this Subscription Agreement, if such Registration Statement is filed.

The Company shall not file a Registration Statement or any such Prospectus or any amendments or supplements thereto to which the Subscribers of a majority of the Registrable Securities or Legal Counsel shall reasonably object in good faith, provided that, the Company is notified of such objection in writing no later than three (3) Trading days after Legal Counsel has been so furnished a copy of a Registration Statement or one (1) Trading day after Legal Counsel has been so furnished copies of any related Prospectus or amendments or supplements thereto. Each Subscriber agrees to furnish to the Company a completed questionnaire in the form attached to this Subscription Agreement as Annex B (a “Selling Stockholder Questionnaire”) on a date that is not less than two (2) Trading days prior to the Filing Date or by the end of the fourth (4th) Trading day following the date on which such Subscriber receives draft materials in accordance with this Section.
(b) (i) Prepare and file with the Commission such amendments, including post-effective amendments, to a Registration Statement and the Prospectus used in connection therewith as may be necessary to keep a Registration Statement continuously effective as to the applicable Registrable Securities for the Effectiveness Period and prepare and file with the Commission such additional Registration Statements in order to register for resale under the Securities Act all of the Registrable Securities, (ii) cause the related Prospectus to be amended or supplemented by any required Prospectus supplement (subject to the terms of this Subscription Agreement), and, as so supplemented or amended, to be filed pursuant to Rule 424, (iii) respond as promptly as reasonably possible to any comments received from the Commission with respect to a Registration Statement or any amendment thereto and provide as promptly as reasonably possible to the Subscriber’s true and complete copies of all correspondence from and to the Commission relating to a Registration Statement (provided that, the Company may excise any information contained therein which would constitute material non-public information as to any Subscriber which has not executed a confidentiality agreement with the Company), and (iv) comply in all material respects with the provisions of the Securities Act and the Exchange Act with respect to the disposition of all Registrable Securities covered by a Registration Statement during the applicable period in accordance (subject to the terms of this Subscription Agreement) with the intended methods of disposition by the Subscribers thereof set forth in such Registration Statement as so amended or in such Prospectus as so supplemented.
Notify the Subscribers of Registrable Securities to be sold (which notice shall, pursuant to clauses (iii) through (vi) hereof, be accompanied by an instruction to suspend the use of the Prospectus until the requisite changes have been made) as promptly as reasonably possible (and, in the case of (i)(A) below, not less than one trading day prior to such filing) and (if requested by any such Person) confirm such notice in writing no later than one Trading day following the day (i)(A) when a Prospectus or any Prospectus supplement or post-effective amendment to a Registration Statement is proposed to be filed, (B) when the Commission notifies the Company whether there will be a “review” of such Registration Statement and whenever the Commission comments in writing on such Registration Statement, and (C) with respect to a Registration Statement or any post-effective amendment, when the same has become effective, (ii) of any request by the Commission or any other federal or state governmental authority for amendments or supplements to a Registration Statement or Prospectus or for additional information, (iii) of the issuance by the Commission or any other federal or state governmental authority of any stop order suspending the effectiveness of a Registration Statement covering any or all of the Registrable Securities or the initiation of any Proceedings for that purpose; (iv) of the receipt by the Company of any notification with respect to the suspension of the qualification or exemption from qualification of any of the Registrable Securities for sale in any jurisdiction, or the initiation or threatening of any Proceeding for such purpose, (v) of the occurrence of any event or passage of time that makes the financial statements included in a Registration Statement ineligible for inclusion therein or any statement made in a Registration Statement or Prospectus or any document incorporated or deemed to be incorporated therein by reference untrue in any material respect or that requires any revisions to a Registration Statement, Prospectus or other documents so that, in the case of a Registration Statement or the Prospectus, as the case may be, it will not contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading and (vi) of the occurrence or existence of any pending corporate development with respect to the Company that the Company believes may be material and that, in the determination of the Company, makes it not in the best interest of the Company to allow continued availability of a Registration Statement or Prospectus, provided that, any and all of such information shall remain confidential to each Subscriber until such information otherwise becomes public, unless disclosure by a Subscriber is required by law.
(c) Use its commercially reasonable efforts to avoid the issuance of, or, if issued, obtain the withdrawal of (i) any order stopping or suspending the effectiveness of a Registration Statement, or (ii) any suspension of the qualification (or exemption from qualification) of any of the Registrable Securities for sale in any jurisdiction, at the earliest practicable moment.

(e) Subject to the terms of this Subscription Agreement, the Company hereby consents to the use of such Prospectus and each amendment or supplement thereto by each of the selling Subscribers in connection with the offering and sale of the Registrable Securities covered by such Prospectus and any amendment or supplement thereto, except after the giving of any notice pursuant to Section 3(c).
(f) The Company shall effect a filing with respect to the public offering contemplated by the Registration Statement (an “Issuer Filing”) with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc.

The Company, shall use commercially reasonable efforts to pursue the Issuer Filing until the FINRA issues a letter confirming that it does not object to the terms of the offering contemplated by the Registration Statement. A copy of the Issuer Filing and all related correspondence with respect thereto shall be provided to the Company.
(g) Prior to any resale of Registrable Securities by a Subscriber, use its commercially reasonable efforts to register or qualify or cooperate with the selling Subscribers in connection with the registration or qualification (or exemption from the Registration or qualification) of such Registrable Securities for the resale by the Subscriber under the securities or Blue Sky laws of such jurisdictions within the United States as any Subscriber reasonably requests in writing, to keep each registration or qualification (or exemption therefrom) effective during the Effectiveness Period and to do any and all other acts or things reasonably necessary to enable the disposition in such jurisdictions of the Registrable Securities covered by each Registration Statement; provided, that, the Company shall not be required to qualify generally to do business in any jurisdiction where it is not then so qualified, subject the Company to any material tax in any such jurisdiction where it is not then so subject or file a general consent to service of process in any such jurisdiction.
(h) If requested by a Subscriber, cooperate with such Subscribers to facilitate the timely preparation and delivery of certificates representing Registrable Securities to be delivered to a transferee pursuant to an effective Registration Statement, which certificates shall be free, to the extent permitted by the Subscription Agreement, of all restrictive legends, and to enable such Registrable Securities to be in such denominations and registered in such names as any such Subscriber may request.
The Company will, as promptly as reasonably possible under the circumstances taking into account the Company’s good faith assessment of any adverse consequences to the Company and its stockholders of the premature disclosure of such event, prepare a supplement or amendment, including a post-effective amendment, to a Registration Statement or a supplement to the related Prospectus or any document incorporated or deemed to be incorporated therein by reference, and file any other required document so that, as thereafter delivered, neither a Registration Statement nor such Prospectus will contain an untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading. If the Company notifies the Subscribers in accordance with clauses (iii) through (vi) of Section 6.3(c) above to suspend the use of any Prospectus until the requisite changes to such Prospectus have been made, then the Subscribers shall suspend use of such Prospectus. The Company will use its best efforts to ensure that the use of the Prospectus may be resumed as promptly as is practicable.

(j) The Company may require each selling Subscriber to furnish to the Company a certified statement as to the number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by such Subscriber and, if required by the Commission, the natural persons thereof that have voting and dispositive control over the shares. During any periods that the Company is unable to meet its obligations hereunder with respect to the registration of the Registrable Securities solely because any Subscriber fails to furnish such information within three Trading days of the Company’s request, any liquidated damages that are accruing at such time as to such Subscriber only shall be tolled and any Event that may otherwise occur solely because of such delay shall be suspended as to such Subscriber only, until such information is delivered to the Company.
