NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing premises and the mutual covenants hereinafter contained, the parties hereto agree as follows:
1. Exchange; Participation Rights
(a) Exchange of Securities. On the Effective Date (as defined below), pursuant to Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act, the Holder hereby agrees to convey, assign and transfer the Existing Warrant to the Company in exchange for which the Company agrees to issue the Exchange Warrant to the Holder as follows (such transactions in this Section 1(a), the “Exchange”). In exchange for the Existing Warrant, on the Effective Date, the Company shall deliver or cause to be delivered to the Holder (or its designee) the Exchange Warrant by email to the Holder in PDF form, with the original Exchange Warrant delivered to the Holder promptly following the Effective Date at the address for delivery set forth on the signature page of the Holder. In addition, the Company shall wire $19,600 via available funds to a bank account designated by the Holder (or its designee) within two business days of the Effective Date (the “Cash Payment”). As soon as commercially practicable following the Effective Date, the Holder shall deliver or cause to be delivered to the Company (or its designee) the Existing Warrant (or affidavit of lost warrant, in form provided upon request by the Company and reasonably acceptable to the Holder). Immediately following the later of (x) the delivery of the Exchange Warrant to the Holder (or its designee) and (y) the payment of the Cash Payment (such later date, the “Delivery Date”), the Holder hereby relinquishes all rights, title and interest in the Existing Warrant (including any claims the Holder may have against the Company related thereto) and assigns the same to the Company and the Existing Warrant shall be cancelled.
(b) Participation Rights. At any time on or prior to the second anniversary of the date hereof, neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries shall, directly or indirectly, effect any Subsequent Placement (as defined below) unless the Company shall have first complied with this Section 1(b). The Company acknowledges and agrees that the right set forth in this Section 1(b) is a right granted by the Company, separately, to the Holder and each Other Holder (collectively, the “Holders”).
(i) At least five (5) Business Days prior to any proposed or intended Subsequent Placement, the Company shall deliver to each Holder a written notice (each such notice, a “Pre-Notice”), which Pre-Notice shall not contain any information (including, without limitation, material, non-public information) other than: (A) if the proposed Offer Notice (as defined below) constitutes or contains material, non-public information, a statement asking whether such Holder is willing to accept material non-public information or (B) if the proposed Offer Notice does not constitute or contain material, non-public information, (x) a statement that the Company proposes or intends to effect a Subsequent Placement, (y) a statement that the statement in clause (x) above does not constitute material, non-public information and (z) a statement informing such Holder that it is entitled to receive an Offer Notice (as defined below) with respect to such Subsequent Placement upon its written request. Upon the written request of a Holder within three (3) Business Days after the Company’s delivery to such Holder of such Pre-Notice, and only upon a written request by such Holder, the Company shall promptly, but no later than one (1) Business Day after such request, deliver to such Holder an irrevocable written notice (the “Offer Notice”) of any proposed or intended issuance or sale or exchange (the “Offer”) of the securities being offered (the “Offered Securities”) in a Subsequent Placement, which Offer Notice shall (A) identify and describe the Offered Securities, (B) describe the price and other terms upon which they are to be issued, sold or exchanged, and the number or amount of the Offered Securities to be issued, sold or exchanged, (C) identify the Persons (if known) to which or with which the Offered Securities are to be offered, issued, sold or exchanged and (D) offer to issue and sell to or exchange with such Holder in accordance with the terms of the Offer such Holder’s pro rata portion of 75% of the Offered Securities (which pro rata amount is 25% for the Holder), provided that the number of Offered Securities which such Holder shall have the right to subscribe for under this Section 1(b) shall be (x) based on such Holder’s pro rata portion of the aggregate number of the shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Amended Warrants held by such Holder as of the closing of the transactions contemplated by the May Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Basic Amount”), and (y) with respect to each Holder that elects to purchase its Basic Amount, any additional portion of the Offered Securities attributable to the Basic Amounts of Other Holders as such Holder shall indicate it will purchase or acquire should the Other Holders subscribe for less than their Basic Amounts (the “Undersubscription Amount”), which process shall be repeated until each Holder shall have an opportunity to subscribe for any remaining Undersubscription Amount.
(ii) To accept an Offer, in whole or in part, such Holder must deliver a written notice to the Company prior to the end of the fifth (5th) Business Day after such Holder’s receipt of the Offer Notice (the “Offer Period”), setting forth the portion of such Holder’s Basic Amount that such Holder elects to purchase and, if such Holder shall elect to purchase all of its Basic Amount, the Undersubscription Amount, if any, that such Holder elects to purchase (in either case, the “Notice of Acceptance”). If the Basic Amounts subscribed for by all Holders are less than the total of all of the Basic Amounts, then each Holder who has set forth an Undersubscription Amount in its Notice of Acceptance shall be entitled to purchase, in addition to the Basic Amounts subscribed for, the Undersubscription Amount it has subscribed for; provided, however, if the Undersubscription Amounts subscribed for exceed the difference between the total of all the Basic Amounts and the Basic Amounts subscribed for (the “Available Undersubscription Amount”), each Holder who has subscribed for any Undersubscription Amount shall be entitled to purchase only that portion of the Available Undersubscription Amount as the Basic Amount of such Holder bears to the total Basic Amounts of all Holders that have subscribed for Undersubscription Amounts, subject to rounding by the Company to the extent it deems reasonably necessary. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Company desires to modify or amend the terms and conditions of the Offer prior to the expiration of the Offer Period, the Company may deliver to each Holder a new Offer Notice and the Offer Period shall expire on the fifth (5th) Business Day after such Holder’s receipt of such new Offer Notice.
(iii) The Company shall have five (5) Business Days from the expiration of the Offer Period above (A) to offer, issue, sell or exchange all or any part of such Offered Securities as to which a Notice of Acceptance has not been given by a Holder (the “Refused Securities”) pursuant to a definitive agreement(s) (the “Subsequent Placement Agreement”), but only to the offerees described in the Offer Notice (if so described therein) and only upon terms and conditions (including, without limitation, unit prices and interest rates) that are not more favorable to the acquiring Person or Persons or less favorable to the Company than those set forth in the Offer Notice and (B) to publicly announce (x) the execution of such Subsequent Placement Agreement, and (y) either (I) the consummation of the transactions contemplated by such Subsequent Placement Agreement or (II) the termination of such Subsequent Placement Agreement, which shall be filed with the SEC on a Current Report on Form 8-K with such Subsequent Placement Agreement and any documents contemplated therein filed as exhibits thereto.
(iv) In the event the Company shall propose to sell less than all the Refused Securities (any such sale to be in the manner and on the terms specified in Section 1(b)(iii) above), then each Holder may, at its sole option and in its sole discretion, withdraw its Notice of Acceptance or reduce the number or amount of the Offered Securities specified in its Notice of Acceptance to an amount that shall be not less than the number or amount of the Offered Securities that such Holder elected to purchase pursuant to Section 1(b)(ii) above multiplied by a fraction, (i) the numerator of which shall be the number or amount of Offered Securities the Company actually proposes to issue, sell or exchange (including Offered Securities to be issued or sold to Holders pursuant to this Section 1(b) prior to such reduction) and (ii) the denominator of which shall be the original amount of the Offered Securities. In the event that any Holder so elects to reduce the number or amount of Offered Securities specified in its Notice of Acceptance, the Company may not issue, sell or exchange more than the reduced number or amount of the Offered Securities unless and until such securities have again been offered to the Holders in accordance with Section 4(o)(i) above.
(v) Upon the closing of the issuance, sale or exchange of all or less than all of the Refused Securities, such Holder shall acquire from the Company, and the Company shall issue to such Holder, the number or amount of Offered Securities specified in its Notice of Acceptance, as reduced pursuant to Section 1(b)(iv) above if such Holder has so elected, upon the terms and conditions specified in the Offer. The purchase by such Holder of any Offered Securities is subject in all cases to the preparation, execution and delivery by the Company and such Holder of a separate purchase agreement relating to such Offered Securities reasonably satisfactory in form and substance to such Holder and its counsel.
(vi) Any Offered Securities not acquired by a Holder or other Persons in accordance with this Section 1(b) may not be issued, sold or exchanged until they are again offered to such Holder under the procedures specified in this Agreement.
(vii) The Company and each Holder agree that if any Holder elects to participate in the Offer, neither the Subsequent Placement Agreement with respect to such Offer nor any other transaction documents related thereto (collectively, the “Subsequent Placement Documents”) shall include any term or provision whereby such Holder shall be required to agree to any restrictions on trading as to any securities of the Company or be required to consent to any amendment to or termination of, or grant any waiver, release or the like under or in connection with, any agreement previously entered into with the Company or any instrument received from the Company.
(viii) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 1(b) and unless otherwise agreed to by such Holder, the Company shall either confirm in writing to such Holder that the transaction with respect to the Subsequent Placement has been abandoned or shall publicly disclose its intention to issue the Offered Securities, in either case, in such a manner such that such Holder will not be in possession of any material, non-public information, by the fifth (5th) Business Day following delivery of the Offer Notice. If by such fifth (5th) Business Day, no public disclosure regarding a transaction with respect to the Offered Securities has been made, and no notice regarding the abandonment of such transaction has been received by such Holder, such transaction shall be deemed to have been abandoned and such Holder shall not be in possession of any material, non-public information with respect to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries. Should the Company decide to pursue such transaction with respect to the Offered Securities, the Company shall provide such Holder with another Offer Notice and such Holder will again have the right of participation set forth in this Section 1(b). The Company shall not be permitted to deliver more than one such Offer Notice to such Holder in any sixty (60) day period, except as expressly contemplated by the last sentence of Section 1(b)(ii).
(ix) The restrictions contained in this Section 1(b) shall not apply in connection with the issuance of any Exempt Issuance (as defined in the May Securities Purchase Agreement as in effect as of the date hereof), or any private placement of Common Stock that is solely to investors in Asia and both (A) is not a Variable Rate Transaction (as defined in the May Securities Purchase Agreement) and (B) does not include any issuance of warrants to purchase Common Stock or other Common Stock Equivalents (the “Exempt Private Placements”). The Company shall not circumvent the provisions of this Section 1(b) by providing terms or conditions to one Holder that are not provided to all.
(x) For purposes of this Section 1(b) “Subsequent Placement” means any direct or indirect issuance, offer, sale, grant any option or right to purchase, or otherwise disposition of (or announcement any issuance, offer, sale, grant of any option or right to purchase or other disposition of) by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries of any equity security or any equity-linked or related security (including, without limitation, any “equity security” (as that term is defined under Rule 405 promulgated under the Securities Act), any Common Stock, any Common Stock Equivalents, any debt, any preferred stock or any purchase rights).
(c) Other Documents. The Company and the Holder shall execute and/or deliver such other documents and agreements as are customary and reasonably necessary to effectuate the Exchange.

Such representations and warranties to the transactions thereunder and the securities issued pursuant thereto are hereby deemed for purposes of this Agreement to be references to the transactions hereunder and the issuance of the securities pursuant hereto, references therein to “Closing Date” being deemed references to the Effective Date, and references to “the date hereof” being deemed references to the date of this Agreement.

13. Most Favored Nation. The Company hereby represents and warrants as of the date hereof and covenants and agrees from and after the date hereof that none of the terms offered to any Person with respect to any consent, release, amendment, settlement or waiver relating to the terms, conditions and transactions contemplated hereby or by any Other Agreement (each a “Settlement Document”), is or will be more favorable to such Person than those of the Holder and this Agreement. If, and whenever on or after the date hereof, the Company enters into a Settlement Document, then (i) the Company shall provide notice thereof to the Holder immediately following the occurrence thereof and (ii) the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall be, without any further action by the Holder or the Company, automatically amended and modified in an economically and legally equivalent manner such that the Holder shall receive the benefit of the more favorable terms and/or conditions (as the case may be) set forth in such Settlement Document, provided that upon written notice to the Company at any time the Holder may elect not to accept the benefit of any such amended or modified term or condition, in which event the term or condition contained in this Agreement shall apply to the Holder as it was in effect immediately prior to such amendment or modification as if such amendment or modification never occurred with respect to the Holder. The provisions of this Section 13 shall apply similarly and equally to each Settlement Document.
14. Independent Nature of Holder’s Obligations and Rights. The obligations of the Holder under this Agreement are several and not joint with the obligations of any Other Holder, and the Holder shall not be responsible in any way for the performance of the obligations of any Other Holder under any Other Agreement. Nothing contained herein or in any Other Agreement, and no action taken by the Holder pursuant hereto, shall be deemed to constitute the Holder and Other Holders as a partnership, an association, a joint venture or any other kind of entity, or create a presumption that the Holder and Other Holders are in any way acting in concert or as a group with respect to such obligations or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or any Other Agreement and the Company acknowledges that, to the best of its knowledge, the Holder and the Other Holders are not acting in concert or as a group with respect to such obligations or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or any Other Agreement. The Company and the Holder confirm that the Holder has independently participated in the negotiation of the transactions contemplated hereby with the advice of its own counsel and advisors. The Holder shall be entitled to independently protect and enforce its rights, including, without limitation, the rights arising out of this Agreement, and it shall not be necessary for any Other Holder to be joined as an additional party in any proceeding for such purpose.

In consideration of the mutual covenants and agreements contained in this Agreement, as of the later of (x) the Effective Date and (y) the Delivery Date, the Company and the Holder hereby releases, waives and forever discharges the other party and each of its affiliates and their respective members, shareholders, officers, directors, and employees (collectively, “Representatives”), from any and every action, cause of action, complaint, claim, demand, administrative charge, legal right, compensation obligation, damages (including exemplary or punitive damages), benefits, liability, costs and/or expenses (including attorneys’ fees), that such party has, may have, or may be entitled to against the other party, whether legal, equitable or administrative, whether known or unknown, whether past, current or future, which arise solely with respect to the Original April Warrants or the Amended Warrant (collectively, the “Released Claims”), but not with respect to this Agreement, the Exchange Securities or any other securities of the Company held by the Holder as of the date hereof or after the date hereof (or any other related agreement) (collectively, the “Excluded Claims”).
