Price of the Shares being purchased which Holder is the record and beneficial owner of and which have been held by the Holder for at least six (6) months; provided, however, that such method of payment is then permitted under applicable law; (iii) if the sale of the Shares is covered by an effective registration statement, by delivering to the Company a Notice of Exercise together with an irrevocable direction to a broker-dealer registered under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), to sell a sufficient portion of the Shares and deliver the sales proceeds directly to the Company to pay the Exercise Price; (iv) by reducing the number of shares of the Company’s Common Stock otherwise issuable under this Option to Holder upon the exercise of the Option by a number of shares of Common Stock having a Fair Market Value equal to such aggregated exercise price; provided, however, that such method of payment is then permitted under applicable law; or (v) by any combination of the procedures set forth in subsections (i), (ii), (iii) and (iv) of this Section 3.1.
3.2 Fair Market Value. If previously owned shares of Common Stock are tendered as payment of the Exercise Price, the value of such shares shall be the “Fair Market Value” of such shares on the trading date immediately preceding the date of exercise. For the purpose of this Agreement, the “Fair Market Value” shall be:

(d) If the Fair Market Value of the Common Stock cannot be determined on the basis previously set forth in this definition on the date that the Fair Market Value is to be determined, the Board of Directors of the Company shall in good faith determine the Fair Market Value of the Common Stock on such date.
If the tender of previously owned shares would result in an issuance of a whole number of Shares and a fractional Share of Common Stock, the value of such fractional share shall be paid to the Company in cash or by check by the Holder.

Upon the occurrence of a Reorganization Event (regardless of whether such event also constitutes a Change in Control Event), or the execution by the Company of any agreement with respect to a Reorganization Event (regardless of whether such event will result in a Change in Control Event), this Options shall be assumed, or equivalent options shall be substituted, by the acquiring or succeeding corporation (or an affiliate thereof); provided, however, that if such Reorganization Event also constitutes a Change in Control Event, such assumed or substituted options shall be immediately exercisable in full upon the occurrence of such Reorganization Event. For purposes hereof, this Option shall be considered to be assumed if, following consummation of the Reorganization Event, this Option confers the right

to purchase, for each share of Common Stock subject to this Option immediately prior to the consummation of the Reorganization Event, the consideration (whether cash, securities or other property) received as a result of the Reorganization Event by holders of Common Stock for each share of Common Stock held immediately prior to the consummation of the Reorganization Event (and if holders were offered a choice of consideration, the type of consideration chosen by the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of Common Stock); provided, however, that if the consideration received as a result of the Reorganization Event is not solely common stock of the acquiring or succeeding corporation (or an affiliate thereof), the Company may, with the consent of the acquiring or succeeding corporation (or an affiliate thereof), provide for the consideration to be received upon the exercise of this Option to consist solely of common stock of the acquiring or succeeding corporation (or an affiliate thereof) equivalent in fair market value to the per share consideration received by holders of outstanding shares of Common Stock as a result of the Reorganization Event.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the acquiring or succeeding corporation (or an affiliate thereof) does not agree to assume, or substitute for, this, then the this Options shall become exercisable in full as of a date at least thirty (30) days prior to the Reorganization Event and will terminate immediately prior to the consummation of such Reorganization Event, except to the extent exercised by Holder before the consummation of such Reorganization Event; provided, however, that in the event of a Reorganization Event under the terms of which holders of Common Stock will receive upon consummation thereof a cash payment for each share of Common Stock surrendered pursuant to such Reorganization Event (the “Acquisition Price”), then this Option shall terminate upon consummation of such Reorganization Event and Holder shall receive, in exchange therefor, a cash payment equal to the amount (if any) by which: (A) the Acquisition Price multiplied by the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of this Option (whether or not then exercisable), exceeds (B) the aggregate exercise price of such Options.
(b) Change in Control Event that is not a Reorganization Event. Upon the occurrence of a Change in Control Event that does not also constitute a Reorganization Event, this Option shall automatically become immediately exercisable in full.
12. Intentionally Omitted.
13. Severability. Whenever possible, each provision of this Option shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law, but if any provision of this Option is held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect under any applicable law or rule in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect the validity, legality or enforceability of any other provision of this Option in such jurisdiction or affect the validity, legality or enforceability of any provision in any other jurisdiction, but this Option shall be reformed, construed and enforced in such jurisdiction as if such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision had never been contained herein.
14. Governing Law. The corporate law of the State of Nevada shall govern all issues and questions concerning the relative rights of the Company and its stockholders. All other questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of this Option and the exhibits and schedules hereto shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Nevada, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules or provisions (whether of the State of Nevada or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Nevada.

Service of process on the Company or the Holder in any action arising out of or relating to this Option shall be effective if mailed to such party at the address listed in Section 9 hereof.
16. Arbitration. If a dispute arises as to interpretation of this Option, it shall be decided finally by three arbitrators in an arbitration proceeding conforming to the Rules of the American Arbitration Association applicable to commercial arbitration. The arbitrators shall be appointed as follows: one by the Company, one by the Holder and the third by the said two arbitrators, or, if they cannot agree, then the third arbitrator shall be appointed by the American Arbitration Association. The third arbitrator shall be chairman of the panel and shall be impartial. The arbitration shall take place in Las Vegas, Nevada. The decision of a majority of the arbitrators shall be conclusively binding upon the parties and final, and such decision shall be enforceable as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. Each party shall pay the fees and expenses of the arbitrator appointed by it, its counsel and its witnesses. The parties shall share equally the fees and expenses of the impartial arbitrator.
17. Corporate Power; Authorization; Enforceable Obligations. The execution, delivery and performance by the Company of this Option: (i) are within the Company’s corporate power; (ii) have been duly authorized by all necessary or proper corporate action; (iii) are not in contravention of the Company’s articles of incorporation or bylaws; (iv) will not violate in any material respect, any law or regulation, including any and all Federal and state securities laws, or any order or decree of any court or governmental instrumentality; and (v) will not, in any material respect, conflict with or result in the breach or termination of, or constitute a default under any agreement or other material instrument to which the Company is a party or by which the Company is bound.
