You are hereby irrevocably authorized and instructed to reserve a sufficient number of shares of common stock ("shares") of the Company (initially, 210,937 shares) for issuance upon conversion of the Note and/or exercise of the Warrant in accordance with the terms thereof. The amount of shares so reserved may be increased, from time to time, only upon the written instructions of the Company.
The ability to convert the Note in a timely manner is a material obligation of the Company pursuant to the Note. The ability to exercise the Warrant in a timely manner is a material obligation of the Company pursuant to the Warrant. Provided you, Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company (the “Transfer Agent”), are acting as transfer agent at the time and provided no single issuance is greater than 4.99% of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company, your firm is hereby irrevocably authorized and instructed to within two (2) Trading days issue shares of Common Stock of the Company to the Investor upon your receipt from the Investor (provided, however, that the Investor must concurrently provide the following items to the Company as well) of: (i) a notice of conversion under the Note (each a "Conversion Notice") and/or a notice of exercise under the Warrant (each an "Exercise Notice") executed by the Investor, (ii) an opinion of the Company's counsel or counsel of the Investor, confirming that the shares may be issued upon conversion of the Note and/or exercise of the Warrant without any transfer restrictions pursuant to an effective resale registration statement or pursuant to the exemption provided by Rule 144 (or any other available exemption) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and (iii) copies of all supporting prospectus or supporting documentation (a seller's representation letter and a broker's representation letter if the shares have been held less than twelve months).

You shall have no liability to the Company and the Investor in respect of this if such action was taken or omitted to be taken in good faith, and you shall be entitled to rely in this regard and without liability on the advice of counsel, including counsel selected by you.
