|(ii)||if the Shares are actively traded over-the-counter, the value shall be deemed to be the closing bid on the business day immediately prior to the exercise form being submitted in connection with the exercise of the Purchase Warrant; if there is no active public market, the value shall be the fair market value thereof, as determined in good faith by the Company’s Board of Directors.|

Nothing herein shall limit a Holder’s right to pursue any other remedies available to it hereunder, at law or in equity including, without limitation, a decree of specific performance and/or injunctive relief with respect to the Company’s failure to timely deliver certificates representing Holder Shares upon exercise of the Warrant as required pursuant to the terms hereof.

5.2. Elimination of Fractional Interests. The Company shall not be required to issue certificates representing fractions of Shares upon the exercise of the Purchase Warrant, nor shall it be required to issue scrip or pay cash in lieu of any fractional interests, it being the intent of the parties that all fractional interests shall be eliminated by rounding any fraction up or down, as the case may be, to the nearest whole number of Shares or other securities, properties or rights.

9. Registration Rights Agreement.
For the term of two (years) following the date of the issuance of this Purchase Warrant, the Holder shall have registration rights related to the Holder Shares as follows:

(d) Priority on Secondary Registrations. If a Piggyback Registration is an underwritten secondary registration on behalf of holders of the Company’s securities and the managing underwriters advise the Company that in their opinion the number of securities requested to be included in such registration exceeds the number which can be sold in such offering without adversely affecting the marketability of the offering, the Company shall include in such registration (i) first, the securities requested to be included therein by the holders requesting such registration, (ii) second, the securities requested to be included in such registration by the Holder, pro rata with all other common stockholders with Piggyback Registration rights on the basis of the number of shares requested to be included therein by each such holder, and (iii) third, other securities requested to be included in such registration pro rata among the holders thereof on the basis of the number of shares requested to be included therein.
