WHEREAS, the Company's Board of Directors and its shareholders have approved the repricing of the Option to have an exercise price per share of the greater of (i) the closing price of a share of Stock on July 28, 2016 (i.e., $1.50), or (ii) $2.22; and
WHEREAS, the Company and the Participant now desire to acknowledge the amendment of the Stock Option Agreement to reduce the exercise price per share of the Option to $2.22;
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual promises set forth herein, the parties hereby agree as follows:
1. Amendment to Stock Option Agreement.  The Stock Option Agreement is hereby amended to provide for a per share "Option Price" (as that term is used in the Stock Option Agreement) for the unexercised portion of the Option as of the date hereof of "$2.22."
2. No Other Amendments.  Except as expressly amended hereby, the provisions of the Stock Option Agreement are and will remain in full force and effect, and except as expressly provided herein, nothing in this Amendment shall be construed as a waiver of any of the rights or obligations of the Company or the Participant under the Stock Option Agreement.
