1.2 Manner of Exercise.
1.2.1 The Holder may exercise this Warrant, in whole or in part, upon surrender of this Warrant, with the form of Subscription Agreement attached hereto duly executed, to the Company at its corporate office in San Diego, California, and upon payment to the Company of the full Purchase Price for each Share to be purchased in lawful money of the United States, or by certified or cashier’s check, or wired funds, and upon compliance with and subject to the conditions set forth herein.
1.2.2 Upon receipt of this Warrant with the form of Subscription Agreement duly executed and accompanied by payment of the aggregate Purchase Price for the Shares for which this Warrant is then being exercised, the Company shall cause to be issued certificates for the total number of whole Shares for which this Warrant is being exercised in such denominations as are required for delivery to the Holder, and the Company shall thereupon deliver such certificates to the Holder or its nominee.
1.2.3 In case the Holder shall exercise this Warrant with respect to less than all of the Shares that may be purchased under this Warrant, the Company shall execute a new Warrant for the balance of the Shares that may be purchased upon exercise of this Warrant and deliver such new Warrant to the Holder.

If the Holder desires to divide, combine or exchange this Warrant, he shall make such request in writing delivered to the Company at its corporate office and shall surrender this Warrant and any other Warrants to be so divided, combined or exchanged. The Company shall execute and deliver to the person entitled thereto a Warrant or Warrants, as the case may be, as so requested. The Company shall not be required to effect any division, combination or exchange which will result in the issuance of a Warrant entitling the Holder to purchase upon exercise a fraction of a Share. The Company may require the Holder to pay a sum sufficient to cover any tax or governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with any division, combination or exchange of Warrants.
1.4 Holder as Owner. Prior to surrender of this Warrant in accordance with Section 1.5 for registration or assignment, the Company may deem and treat the Holder as the absolute owner of this Warrant (notwithstanding any notation of ownership or other writing hereon) for the purpose of any exercise hereof and for all other purposes, and the Company shall not be affected by any notice to the contrary.
1.5 Method of Assignment.

1.6 Rights of Holder. Nothing contained in this Warrant shall be construed as conferring upon the Holder the right to vote, consent or receive notice as a shareholder in respect of any meetings of shareholders for the election of directors or any other matter, or as having any rights whatsoever as a shareholder of the Company, until Shares are duly and properly issued to the Holder upon the exercise of this Warrant.
1.7 Lost Certificates. If this Warrant is lost, stolen, mutilated or destroyed, the Company shall, on such reasonable terms as to indemnity or otherwise as it may impose (which shall, in the case of a mutilated Warrant, include the surrender thereof), issue a new Warrant of like denomination and tenor as, and in substitution for, this Warrant, which shall thereupon become void. Any such new Warrant shall constitute a substituted and not an additional contractual obligation of the Company.
1.8 Covenants of the Company. The Company covenants and agrees as follows:
1.8.1 At all times the Company shall reserve and keep available for the exercise of this Warrant such number of authorized shares of Common Stock as are sufficient to permit the exercise in full of this Warrant.

and Number of Shares Purchasable upon Exercise
2.1 Stock Splits. If the Company at any time or from time to time after the issuance date of this Warrant effects a subdivision of the outstanding Common Stock, the Purchase Price then in effect immediately before that subdivision shall be proportionately decreased, and conversely, if the Company at any time or from time to time after the issuance date of this Warrant combines the outstanding shares of Common Stock, the Purchase Price then in effect immediately before the combination shall be proportionately increased. Any adjustment under this subsection 2.1 shall become effective at the close of business on the date the subdivision or combination becomes effective.
2.2 Dividends and Distributions. In the event the Company at any time, or from time to time after the issuance date of this Warrant makes, or fixes a record date for the determination of holders of Common Stock entitled to receive, a dividend or other distribution payable in additional shares of Common Stock, then and in each such event the Purchase Price then in effect shall be decreased as of the time of such issuance or, in the event such a record date is fixed, as of the close of business on such record date, by multiplying the Purchase Price then in effect by a fraction (i) the numerator of which is the total number of shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the time of such issuance or the close of business on such record date, and (ii) the denominator of which shall be the total number of shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the time of such issuance or the close of business on such record
date plus the number of shares of Common Stock issuable in payment of such dividend or distribution; provided, however, that if such record date is fixed and such dividend is not fully paid or if such distribution is not fully made on the date fixed therefor, the Purchase Price shall be recomputed accordingly as of the close of business on such record date and thereafter the Purchase Price shall be adjusted pursuant to this subsection 2.2 as of the time of actual payment of such dividends or distributions.
2.3 Recapitalization or Reclassification. If the Shares issuable upon the exercise of the Warrant are changed into the same or a different number of shares of any class or classes of stock, whether by recapitalization, reclassification or otherwise (other than a subdivision or combination of shares or stock dividend or a reorganization, merger, consolidation or sale of assets, provided for elsewhere in this Section 2), then, and in any such event, the Holder shall thereafter be entitled to receive upon exercise of this Warrant such number and kind of stock or other securities or property of the Company to which a holder of Shares deliverable upon exercise of this Warrant would have been entitled on such reclassification or other change, subject to further adjustment as provided herein.
