1. AMENDMENT TO THE AGREEMENT
 
Section 2(e) of the Agreement is hereby amended to read as follows:
 
Monthly Liquidated Damages. If the Registration Statement required to be filed pursuant to Section 2(a) of this Agreement (i) has not been filed with the SEC on or prior to the Filing Date, (ii) has not been declared effective by the SEC on or prior to the Effective Date or (iii) is not available for resales of Registrable Securities at any time during the Registration Period, the Company will make pro rata payments to each Investor, as liquidated damages and not as a penalty, a number of ADSs having an aggregate Stated Value equal to 2.0% of the sum of (1) the aggregate purchase price paid by the Investors for the outstanding Preferred Stock. Exchange Shares and Warrant Shares then held by the Investors and (2) the aggregate exercise price of the Warrant Shares then issuable upon exercise of outstanding Warrants then held by the Investors, for each monthly anniversary following the dote by which such Registration Statement should have been filed or have been declared effective by the SEC as applicable. Such pro rata payments shall cease to accrue immediately at such time as the Registration Statement is filed with the SEC for purposes of payments due under clause (i) of the immediately preceding sentence or is declared effective by the SEC with respect to payments due under clause (ii) of the immediately preceding sentence, as applicable. Such payments shall constitute the Investors’ sole monetary remedy for such events. As used herein, the term “Stated Value” means $0.25 per ADS. Notwithstanding the foregoing, (1) in no event shall the total number of ADSs issuable pursuant to this Section 2(e) exceed 30% of the total number of Exchange Shares issuable upon exchange of the Preferred Stock. and (2) the Company may elect to deliver cash, in an amount equal to the Stated Value of ADSs deliverable under this Section 2(e) multiplied by the number of ADSs so deliverable, in lieu of delivering such ADSs (and in full satisfaction of its obligation to issue such ADSs).
 

 
 

 


 
 
2. MISCELLANEOUS

Except as set forth herein, the Buyers reserve all rights, remedies, powers, or privileges available under the transaction documents, at law or otherwise.
