HEDGING TRANSCATIONS INVOLVING THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED HEREBY MAY NOT BE CONDUCTED UNLESS IN COMPLIANCE WITH U.S. SECURITIES LAWS.

EXERCISE OF WARRANT
The terms and conditions upon which this Warrant may be exercised, and the Shares subject hereto may be purchased, are as follows:
Section 1.1Warrant Price. The Warrant Price shall be $1.27 per Share, subject to adjustment as provided in Section 4 below.
Section 1.2Method of Exercise. Subject to the limitations in Section 1.3 below, Holder may at any time beginning on the date which is six (6) months from the effective date of this Warrant and subject to the Company obtaining any shareholder or other required regulatory approval to permit the issuance or exercise of the Warrant, and for three (3) years from such date of effectiveness, or such later date as the Company may in its sole discretion determine (the “Exercise Period”), exercise in whole or in part the purchase rights evidenced by this Warrant. Such exercise shall be effected by:
(a)the surrender of this Warrant, together with a duly executed copy of the form of notice of exercise attached hereto as Exhibit A, to the Secretary of the Company at its principal office;
(b) the payment to the Company, by cash, certified or cashier’s check payable to Company’s order or wire transfer to the Company’s account, of an amount equal to the aggregate Warrant Price for the number of Shares for which the purchase rights hereunder are being exercised. Alternatively if then permitted under applicable securities laws, Holder may exercise this Warrant by delivering to the Company: (i) a properly executed notice of exercise together with a copy of irrevocable instructions (“Broker Instructions”) to a FINRA-member securities broker-dealer to promptly deliver to the Company cash or a check payable to the Company in the full amount of the Warrant Price for the total number of Shares being purchased against the Company’s delivery of the Shares for which this Warrant is exercised (if Holder and the securities broker comply with such procedures and enter into such agreements of indemnity and other agreements as the Company may reasonably prescribe as a condition of that payment procedure) or (ii) shares of Common Stock, free and clear of any and all liens, claims and encumbrances, having an aggregate Fair Market Value (as defined herein below) equal to the full amount of the Warrant Price for the total number of Shares being purchased. Holder may also make payment in any combination of the permissible forms of payment described in the preceding sentence. Additionally, if then permitted under applicable securities laws, if the Fair Market Value of the Shares at time of exercise is greater than the Warrant Price, Holder may exercise this Warrant or any portion hereof by indicating on the notice of exercise that Holder elects to exercise this Warrant on a net exercise basis (“Net Exercise Basis”). The Company shall then issue to Holder a number of Shares determined using the following formula:
X = Y (A-B)
the number of Shares to be issued to Holder.
the number of Shares covered by this Warrant in respect of which the net exercise election is made pursuant to this Section.
the Fair Market Value of one Share, as determined in accordance with the provisions hereof, as of the date this Warrant is exercised.
the Warrant Price in effect as of the date this Warrant is exercised.
“Fair Market Value” of a share of Common Stock (for purposes of this section) means (a) if the Shares are traded on a national securities exchange, the average of the closing prices for the twenty (20) trading days prior to the date this Warrant is exercised; (b) if the Shares are traded on another market or quotation system, or the prices for the shares are published on the “OTC Pink”, the average of the closing bid and ask prices posted for the Shares during the twenty (20) trading days prior to the date this Warrant is exercised; or (c) if the primary market for such Shares is not an exchange or quotation system, the fair market value thereof as shall be determined in good faith using appropriate valuation methods by the Board of Directors of the Company as of the date this Warrant is exercised; and
(c)the delivery to the Company, if necessary in the discretion of counsel for the Company, to assure compliance with the Securities Act, and applicable state securities laws, of an instrument executed by Holder certifying that the Shares are being purchased solely for the account of Holder and not with a view to any resale or distribution in violation of the Securities Act or applicable state securities laws.
Section 1.3Exercise Limitations. Holder shall not have the right to exercise any portion of this Warrant to the extent that after giving effect to the issuance of Shares upon such exercise, Holder (together with Holder’s affiliates,
and any other persons acting as a group together with Holder or any of Holder’s affiliates) would beneficially own in excess of 9.99% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock of the Company.
Section 1.4Issuance of Shares and New Warrant. If the purchase rights evidenced by this Warrant are exercised in whole or in part, one or more certificates for the purchased Shares shall be issued as soon as practicable thereafter to Holder. If the purchase rights evidenced by this Warrant are exercised only in part, the Company shall also deliver to Holder at such time a new Warrant evidencing the purchase rights regarding the number of Shares (if any) for which the purchase rights under this Warrant remain unexercised and continue in force and effect. All new Warrants issued in connection with the provisions of this Section 1.4 shall bear the same date as this Warrant and shall be substantially identical in form and provisions to this Warrant except for the number of Shares purchasable thereunder. Each person in whose name any certificate for Shares is to be issued shall for all purposes be deemed to have become the holder of record of such Shares on the date on which this Warrant was surrendered and payment of the Warrant Price was made, irrespective of the date of delivery of such stock certificate, except that if the date of such surrender and payment is a date when the stock transfer books of the Company are closed, such person shall be deemed to have become the holder of such Shares at the close of business on the next succeeding date on which the stock transfer books are open.
Section 2.1Transfers. This Warrant and all rights hereunder are transferable in whole or in part by Holder subject to the provisions of Section 7 below. The transfer shall be recorded on the books of the Company upon (i) the surrender of this Warrant (together with a duly executed and endorsed copy of the form of transfer certificate attached hereto as Exhibit B) to the Secretary of the Company at its principal offices, and (ii) the payment to the Company of all transfer taxes and other governmental charges imposed on such transfer. In the event of a partial transfer, the Company shall issue to the several holders one or more appropriate new Warrants.
Section 2.2Registered Holder. Each holder of this Warrant agrees that until such time as any transfer pursuant to Section 2.1 above is recorded on the books of the Company, the Company may treat the Holder of this Warrant as the absolute owner.
Section 2.3Form of New Warrants. All new Warrants issued in connection with transfers of this Warrant shall bear the same date as this Warrant and shall be substantially identical in form and provisions to this Warrant except for the number of Shares purchasable thereunder.
Section 3.1No Fractional Shares.Notwithstanding any adjustment (as required hereby) to the number of Shares purchasable upon the exercise of this Warrant, the Company shall not be required to issue any fraction of a Share upon exercise of this Warrant. If, by reason of any change made pursuant to Section 4 below, Holder would be entitled, upon the exercise of any rights evidenced hereby, to receive a fractional interest in a Share, the Company shall, at its election, upon such proper exercise of this Warrant, purchase such fractional interest for an amount in cash equal to the Fair Market Value of such fractional interest, determined as of the date of such exercise of this Warrant, or round up to the next whole share.
Section 4.1Stock Splits and Combinations. If the Common Stock shall at any time be subdivided into a greater number of shares, then the number of Shares purchasable upon exercise of this Warrant shall be proportionately increased and the Warrant Price shall be proportionately decreased; and, conversely, if the Common Stock shall at any time be combined or consolidated into a smaller number of shares, then the number of Shares purchasable upon exercise of this Warrant shall be proportionately reduced and the Warrant Price shall be proportionately increased. Any adjustments under this Section 4.1 shall become effective at the close of business on the date the subdivision or combination or consolidation becomes effective.
Section 4.2Reclassification, Exchange and Substitution. If the Common Stock shall be changed into shares of any other class or classes of stock or other securities of the Company, whether by capital reorganization, reclassification, or otherwise, Holder shall, upon exercise of this Warrant, be entitled to purchase for the same aggregate consideration, in lieu of the Shares that Holder would have become entitled to purchase but for such change, such number, class and series of securities of the Company as would have been issuable in connection with such event to a holder of that number of shares of Common Stock purchasable upon exercise of this Warrant immediately prior to such reorganization, reclassification or other change. The Warrant Price shall be appropriately adjusted to reflect that reorganization, reclassification or other change. Any adjustments under this Section 4.2 shall become effective at the close of business on the date such change of the Common Stock into shares of any other class or classes of stock or other securities of the Company becomes effective.
Section 4.3Reorganizations, Mergers, Consolidations or Sale of Assets. If at any time there shall be a reorganization involving the Common Stock (other than a stock split, combination, consolidation, reclassification, exchange, or subdivision of shares provided for in Sections 4.1 and 4.2 above) or a merger or consolidation of the Company with or into another corporation, or the sale of all or substantially all of the Company’s assets to any other person, then, as a part of such reorganization, merger, consolidation or sale, lawful provision shall be made so that Holder shall thereafter be entitled to receive upon exercise of this Warrant, in accordance with the terms hereof, in lieu of the Shares that Holder would have become entitled to purchase but for such event, such other securities or property of the Company, or of the successor corporation resulting from such event, to which Holder would have been entitled in such reorganization, merger, consolidation or sale if this Warrant had been exercised immediately before that reorganization, merger, consolidation or sale. In any such case, appropriate adjustment (as determined in good faith by the Company’s Board of Directors) shall be made in the application of the provisions of this Warrant with respect to the rights and interests of Holder after the reorganization, merger, consolidation, or sale to the end that the provisions of this Warrant (including adjustment of the Warrant Price then in effect and number of Shares purchasable upon exercise of this Warrant) shall be applicable after that event, as near as reasonably may be, in relation to any shares or other property deliverable after that event upon exercise of this Warrant. The Company shall provide Holder with at least twenty (20) days’ prior written notice of any of the events described in the first sentence of this Section 4.3.
Section 4.4Certificate as to Adjustments. In the case of each adjustment (including a readjustment) under this Section 4, the Company will promptly, and in any event within thirty (30) days after the event requiring the adjustment, compute such adjustment in accordance with the terms hereof and deliver or cause to be delivered to Holder a certificate describing in reasonable detail the event requiring the adjustment and setting forth such adjustment and the calculations and results of such adjustment.
Section 4.5Reservation of Stock Issuable Upon Exercise. The Company shall at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock such number of shares of Common Stock as shall from time to time be sufficient to effect the exercise of this Warrant. If at any time the number of authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock shall not be sufficient to effect the exercise of this Warrant, the Company will take such corporate action as may, in the opinion of its counsel, be necessary to increase its authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock to such number of shares as shall be sufficient for such purpose.
Section 4.6Method of Calculation. All calculations under this Section 4 shall be made to the nearest one hundredth of a share.
RIGHTS PRIOR TO EXERCISE OF WARRANT
Section 5.1No Rights of a Stockholder. This Warrant does not entitle Holder to any of the rights of a stockholder of the Company, including (without limitation) the right to receive dividends or other distributions, to vote or consent, or to receive notice as a stockholder of the Company. If, however, at any time prior to the expiration of this Warrant and prior to its exercise:
(a)the Company shall declare any dividend payable in any securities upon outstanding shares of Common Stock or make any other distribution (other than a regular cash dividend) to the holders of shares of Common Stock;
(b)the Company shall offer to the holders of shares of Common Stock any additional shares of Common Stock or securities convertible into or exchangeable for shares of Common Stock or any right to subscribe for or purchase any thereof; or
(c)a dissolution, liquidation or winding-up of the Company (other than in connection with a reorganization, consolidation, merger, or sale of all or substantially all of its assets as an entirety) shall be approved by the Company’s Board of Directors,
then, in any one or more of such events the Company shall give notice in writing of such event to Holder, at its address as it shall then appear on the Company’s records, at least twenty (20) days prior to the date fixed as a record date or the date of closing the transfer books for the determination of the stockholders entitled to such dividends, distribution, or subscription rights, or for the determination of stockholders entitled to vote on such proposed dissolution, liquidation or winding-up. Such notice shall specify such record date or the date of closing the transfer books, as the case may be.
Any failure to give such notice or any defect therein, however, shall not affect the validity of any action taken in connection with such dividend, distribution or subscription rights, or such proposed dissolution, liquidation or winding-up.
SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS
Section 6.1Inure to Benefit of Successors and Assigns. The terms and provisions of this Warrant shall inure to the benefit of, and be binding upon, the Company and its successors and assigns and Holder and its successors and permitted assigns.
Section 7.1Holder’s Representations. By acceptance of this Warrant, Holder hereby represents to the Company that this Warrant is being acquired for investment for Holder’s own account, not as a nominee or agent, and not with a view to the resale or distribution thereof, and that Holder has no present intention of selling, granting any participation in, or otherwise distributing this Warrant or the Common Stock issuable upon exercise of this Warrant. By acceptance of this Warrant, Holder further represents that Holder does not presently have any contract, undertaking, agreement or arrangement with any person to sell, transfer or grant participations to such person or to any third person, with respect to this Warrant or the Common Stock issuable upon exercise of this Warrant. Holder is an “accredited investor” as the term is defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act and has sufficient knowledge and experience in finance and business that it is capable of evaluating the risks and merits of its investment in the shares subject to this Warrant and Holder is able financially to bear the risks thereof. Holder understands that the offer and sale of this Warrant and the offer and sale of the Common Stock issuable upon exercise of this Warrant have not been registered under the Securities Act, by reason of a specific exemption from the registration provisions of the Securities Act which depends upon, among other things, the bona fide nature of the investment intent and the accuracy of Holder’s representations as expressed herein. Holder further recognizes and acknowledges that because the offer and sale of this Warrant and the offer and sale of the Common Stock issuable upon exercise of this Warrant are unregistered, they may not be eligible for resale, and may only be resold in the future pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws, or pursuant to a valid exemption from such registration requirements and that Holder must, therefore, bear the economic risk of such investment indefinitely.
Section 7.2Restrictive Legend. Holder acknowledges that this Warrant is, and each of the Shares issuable upon the exercise hereof will be, a restricted security, and that the certificate or certificates evidencing such Shares will bear a legend substantially similar to the following legend:
THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE UNITED STATES SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “SECURITIES ACT”), OR ANY APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS. THE SECURITIES HAVE BEEN ACQUIRED FOR INVESTMENT AND MAY NOT BE RESOLD, TRANSFERRED OR ASSIGNED IN THE ABSENCE OF AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT FOR THE OFFER AND SALE OF THE SECURITIES UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OR AN OPINION OF COUNSEL
REASONABLY ACCEPTABLE TO THE COMPANY THAT SUCH DISPOSITION IS IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE SECURITIES ACT AND ANY APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS. HEDGING TRANSACTIONS INVOLVING THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED HEREBY MAY NOT BE CONDUCTED UNLESS IN COMPLIANCE WITH U.S. SECURITIES LAWS.
LOSS OR MUTILATION
Section 8.1Cancellation and Issuance of New Warrant. Upon receipt by the Company of satisfactory evidence of the ownership of and the loss, theft, destruction, or mutilation of this Warrant, and (i) in the case of loss, theft, or destruction, upon receipt by the Company of indemnity satisfactory to it, or (ii) in the case of mutilation, upon receipt of this Warrant and upon surrender and cancellation of this Warrant, the Company shall execute and deliver in lieu thereof a new Warrant representing the right to purchase an equal number of Shares.
Section 9.1 Notice Mechanics. All notices, requests, demands and other communications under this Warrant shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been duly given on the date of receipt (or refusal of receipt) if delivered personally or by courier by the party to whom notice is to be given, or on the earlier of the third business day after the date of mailing or receipt if mailed to the party to whom notice is to be given by first class mail, registered or certified, postage prepaid, and properly addressed as follows: if to Holder, at its address as shown in the Company’s records; and if to the Company, at its principal office. Either party may change its address for purposes of this Section 9 by giving the other party written notice of the new address in the manner set forth above.
GOVERNING LAW; JURISDICTION

This Warrant shall be construed and enforced in accordance with, and all questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and performance of this Warrant and all disputes arising hereunder shall be governed by, the laws of the State of Florida, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of Florida or any other jurisdictions) that would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdictions other than the State of Florida. Any suit, action or proceeding seeking to enforce any provision of, or based on any dispute or matter arising out of or in connection with, this Warrant must be brought in the state and federal courts located in Miami, Florida. The Company and Holder each (a) consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts (and of the appropriate appellate courts therefrom) in any such suit, action or proceeding, (b) irrevocably waive, to the fullest extent permitted by law, any objection which it may now or hereafter have to the laying of the venue of any such suit, action or proceeding in any such court or that any such suit, action or proceeding which is brought in any such court has been brought in an inconvenient forum, (c) will not attempt to deny or defeat such personal jurisdiction by motion or other request for leave from any such court, and (d) will not bring any action relating to this Warrant in any other court.
Section 11.1Amendment and Change of Terms. This Warrant and any terms hereof may be changed, waived, discharged or terminated only by an instrument in writing signed by the party against which enforcement of such change, waiver, discharge or termination is sought. The headings in this Warrant are for purposes of reference only, and shall not limit or otherwise affect any of the terms hereof. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision hereof shall in no way affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision.
