(a) The Subscriber has full power and authority to enter into this Agreement, the execution and delivery of which has been duly authorized by all the necessary corporate actions, and no other acts or proceedings on the part of the Subscriber are necessary to authorize the execution, delivery or performance by the Subscriber of this Agreement, if applicable, and this Agreement constitutes a valid and legally binding obligation of the Subscriber, except as may be limited by bankruptcy, reorganization, insolvency, moratorium and similar laws of general application relating to or affecting the enforcement of rights of creditors, and except as enforceability of the obligations hereunder are subject to general principles of equity (regardless of whether such enforceability is considered in a proceeding in equity or law).
(b) The Subscriber acknowledges its understanding that the Offering and sale of the Securities is intended to be exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), by virtue of Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and the provisions of Regulation D promulgated thereunder (“Regulation D”). In furtherance thereof, the Subscriber represents and warrants to the Company and its affiliates as follows:
(i) The Subscriber realizes that the basis for the exemption from registration may not be available if, notwithstanding the Subscriber’s representations contained herein, the Subscriber is merely acquiring the Securities for a fixed or determinable period in the future, or for a market rise, or for sale if the market does not rise. The Subscriber does not have any such intention.
(ii) The Subscriber realizes that the basis for exemption would not be available if the Offering is part of a plan or scheme to evade registration provisions of the Securities Act or any applicable state or federal securities laws.
(iii) The Subscriber is acquiring the Securities solely for investment purposes, and not with a view towards, or resale in connection with, any distribution of the Securities
(iv) The Subscriber has the financial ability to bear the economic risk of the Subscriber’s investment, has adequate means for providing for its current needs and contingencies, and has no need for liquidity with respect to an investment in the Company.
(v) The Subscriber and the Subscriber’s attorney, accountant, purchaser representative and/or tax advisor, if any (collectively, the “Advisors”) has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters as to be capable of evaluating the merits and risks of a prospective investment in the Securities. If other than an individual, the Subscriber also represents it has not been organized solely for the purpose of acquiring the Securities.
(vi) The Subscriber has carefully reviewed and understands this Agreement in its entirety, including without limitation all Exhibits hereto (including the Series G Certificate of Designation, and the security agreement attached as Exhibit B (the “Security Agreement”)) and Composite Annex B including the Risk Factors included therein.
(vii) The Subscriber (together with its Advisors, if any) has received all documents requested by the Subscriber or its agents (including that which is attached hereto forming Composite Annex B, attached hereto), has carefully reviewed them and understands the information contained therein, prior to the execution of this Agreement.

(e) The Subscriber will not sell or otherwise transfer any Securities without registration under the Securities Act or an exemption therefrom, and fully understands and agrees that the Subscriber must bear the economic risk of its purchase because, among other reasons, the Securities have not been registered under the Securities Act or under the securities laws of any state and, therefore, cannot be resold, pledged, assigned or otherwise disposed of unless they are subsequently registered under the Securities Act and under the applicable securities laws of such states, or an exemption from such registration is available. In particular, the Subscriber is aware that the Securities are “restricted securities,” as such term is defined in Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act (“Rule 144”), and they may not be sold pursuant to Rule 144 unless all of the conditions of Rule 144 are met.

(g) The Subscriber’s overall commitment to investments that are not readily marketable is not disproportionate to the Subscriber’s net worth, and an investment in the Securities will not cause such overall commitment to become excessive.

(d) In the event that any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid, prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction for any reason, unless such provision is narrowed by judicial construction, this Agreement shall, as to such jurisdiction, be construed as if such invalid, prohibited or unenforceable provision had been more narrowly drawn so as not to be invalid, prohibited or unenforceable. If, notwithstanding the foregoing, any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid, prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such provision, as to such jurisdiction, shall be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity, prohibition or unenforceability without invalidating the remaining portion of such provision or the other provisions of this Agreement and without affecting the validity or enforceability of such provision or the other provisions of this Agreement in any other jurisdiction.
(e) No waiver of any breach or default or any right under this Agreement shall be considered valid unless in writing and signed by the party giving such waiver, and no such waiver shall be deemed a waiver of any subsequent breach or default or right, whether of the same or similar nature or otherwise.

The parties hereto further waive any objection to venue in the State of New York and any objection to an action or proceeding in the State of New York on the basis of forum non conveniens.
(i) This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which when so executed shall be deemed to be an original and, all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same Agreement. In the event that any signature is delivered by facsimile transmission, such signature shall create a valid binding obligation of the party executing (or on whose behalf such signature is executed) the same with the same force and effect as if such facsimile signature were the original thereof.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have caused this Security Agreement to be duly executed on the day and year first above written.

COMPOSITE ANNEX B
DOCUMENTATION PROVIDED TO SUBSCRIBER
An investment in the Securities of the Company involves a high degree of risk and should be considered only by persons who can afford to lose their entire investment and who have no need for liquidity in their investment. You should carefully consider the risk factors described below, and discussed in the section titled “Risk Factors” in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, as well as the risks, uncertainties and additional information set forth in our SEC Filings incorporated by reference herein. Our business, financial condition or results of operations could be materially adversely affected by any of these risks. The trading price of our common stock could decline due to any of these risks, and you may lose all or part of your investment.
Risks Related to the Securities and This Offering
There is no public market for the Series G Preferred Shares and a limited public market for the Common Stock.
There is no public market for the Series G Preferred Shares, and we not intend to have such securities quoted or listed on any market. In addition, our common stock is quoted on the OTC Pink which is an unorganized, inter-dealer, over-the-counter market which provides significantly less liquidity than the NASDAQ Capital Market or other national securities exchange. These factors may have an adverse impact on the trading and price of our common stock.
The Securities will be subject to restrictions on resale.
We have not registered the sale of any of the Securities under the Securities Act or any state securities laws. The securities offered hereby are highly illiquid, and are not transferable except in accordance with the Securities Act. Consequently, the Securities may not be resold or otherwise transferred unless they are subsequently registered under applicable securities laws or an exemption therefrom is available. In view of these and other limitations to the transfer of the Securities as described herein, the Securities should be considered an illiquid investment which may need to be held indefinitely. Limitations on the transfer of the Securities may also adversely affect the price that a Subscriber might be able to obtain for such securities in a private sale.
The price of the Units has been determined without a third party valuation or fairness opinion.
We have set the price of Units without the benefit of any third party valuation or fairness opinion or review. You must make your own determination as to the accuracy, fairness or reasonableness of the price of the Units and the other terms of the Offering.
We will have significant discretion over the use of the gross proceeds.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of this Offering for general corporate purposes and to meet working capital needs. Accordingly, Company management will have broad discretion as to the application of such proceeds. There can be no assurance that management’s use of proceeds generated through this Offering will prove optimal or translate into revenue or profitability for the Company.
There is no investor counsel.
The Company has not retained any independent professionals to review or comment on this Offering or otherwise protect the interests of Subscribers. Although the Company has retained its own counsel, neither such firm nor any other firm has made any independent examination of any factual matters represented by management herein, and purchasers of the Securities offered hereby should not rely on any such firms so retained with respect to any matters herein described.
No governmental entity has evaluated our securities.
No federal or state commission, department or agency has made any evaluation, finding, recommendation or endorsement with respect to the Securities.
Additional stock offerings in the future may dilute then-existing shareholders’ percentage ownership of the Company.
Given our plans and expectations that we may need additional capital and personnel, we may need to issue additional shares of common stock or securities convertible or exercisable for shares of common stock, including convertible preferred stock, convertible notes, stock options or warrants. The issuance of additional securities in the future will dilute the percentage ownership of then current stockholders. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Company will designate up to 6,000 shares of Series G Preferred Stock and may issue such additional shares of Series G Preferred Stock without obtaining the consent of the Subscribers in this Offering, and the Company may conduct other offerings concurrent with this offering.
We may be unable to redeem the Series G Preferred Shares when required.
Pursuant to the Series G Certificate of Designation, the Company will be required to redeem the Series G Preferred Shares on April 30, 2021 for the stated value plus any accrued but unpaid dividends. There is no assurance the Company will be able to make such payment. Further, although such redemption will be secured by a second priority security interest in certain of our assets pursuant to the Security Agreement, there is no assurance holders will be able to realize such amount pursuant to such security interest. In addition, we will be required to redeem any outstanding shares of our Series F Preferred Stock on September 1, 2020, which is prior to the date that we will be required to redeem our outstanding shares of Series G Preferred Stock, and may have an adverse effect on our available capital for such redemption.
The Series G Preferred Shares will not have voting rights.
Holders of the Series G Preferred Shares will not have any voting rights, except as may be required under applicable law. Thus, the holders of the Series G Preferred Shares will have no right to participate in the election of directors of the Company or any other matter that may be brought to the vote of the shareholders of the Company.
The Series G Preferred Shares will be subject to the Company’s right of redemption.
Pursuant to the Series G Certificate of Designation, the Company will have the right to redeem outstanding shares of Series G Preferred Stock, in the Company’s discretion, subject to the terms and conditions set forth therein. Such redemption, if it occurs, may reduce the return on Series G Preferred Shares for Subscribers, as redeemed shares will no longer be entitled to further dividends.
The Series G Preferred Stock will not be convertible to Common Stock.
The Series G Preferred Stock will not be convertible to Common Stock. This may reduce the value of the Series G Preferred Stock as the holders, by virtue of being holders of the Series G Preferred Shares, will not have the opportunity to benefit from any increase in the market price of the Common Stock.
Investors should consult their own tax advisers regarding tax consequences of this Offering and the Series G Preferred Shares.
The Company makes no representations regarding the tax treatment that will apply to the Series G Preferred Shares or this Offering, including, without limitation, with respect to any dividend or redemption payments under the Series G Preferred Shares. Subscribers should consult their own tax advisers regarding such tax consequences.
