The Preferred Securities requested to be redeemed shall be in the same proportion of Shares and Warrants as the Common Securities proposed to be sold in the Subject Public Sale.  The redemption price per share in the case of (a) the Series A Securities shall be equal to one hundred (100) times the price per share of Common Stock received in the Public Sale by the Public Sale Selling Stockholder, before underwriter discounts or commissions (subject to equitable adjustment for stock splits, combinations and the like that are made with respect to the Series A Preferred Stock, where no corresponding adjustment is made to the Common Stock), (b) the Series C Preferred Stock shall be equal to (X) the Conversion Shares (as defined in the Series C Certificate of Designation) divided by the number of shares of Series C Preferred Stock issued and outstanding as of the Series C Original Issue Date (as defined in the Series C Certificate of Designation) times (Y) the price per share of Common Stock received in the Public Sale by the Public Sale Selling Stockholder, before underwriter discounts or commissions (subject to equitable adjustment for stock splits, combinations and the like that are made with respect to the Series C Preferred Stock, where no corresponding adjustment is made to the Common Stock) and (c) the Series E Securities shall be equal to Series E Conversion Rate, Series E-1 Conversion Rate or Series E-2 Conversion Rate, as applicable (as such terms are defined in the Series E Certificate of Designation) times the price per share of Common Stock received in the Public Sale by the Public Sale Selling Stockholder, before underwriter discounts or commissions (subject to equitable adjustment for stock splits, combinations and the like that are made with respect to the Series E Preferred Stock, Series E-1 Preferred Stock or Series E-2 Preferred Stock, where no corresponding adjustment is made to the Common Stock) (the respective “Offering Redemption Price”).  Upon receiving an Offering Redemption Notice pursuant to this Section 3(c), the Company shall have two (2) Business Days to notify the holders of Preferred Securities and the Public Sale Selling Stockholder whether it will, at its sole option, redeem the Securities requested in the Offering Redemption Notice.  If it agrees to redeem such Securities, it shall also within such time frame set a date for redemption (the respective “Redemption Date”), which date shall be no later than five (5) Business Days prior to the Offering Date.  If the Company does not agree to redeem any Preferred Securities subject to an Offering Redemption, then the Selling Stockholder may elect to purchase such Preferred Securities at a price per share equal to the Offering Redemption Price.  If (A) the Company does not agree to redeem any Preferred Securities subject to an Offering Redemption and (B) the Public Sale Selling Stockholder does not elect to purchase such Preferred Securities, or if after having so agreed, the Company fails to redeem or the Public Sale Selling Stockholder fails to purchase, any Preferred Securities subject to an Offering Redemption Notice pursuant to this Section 3(c), the Public Sale Selling Stockholder(s) may not consummate the Subject Public Sale.  Any notice given by a Stockholder in which it elects to exercise its offering redemption rights provided in this Section 3(c) shall be irrevocable and shall constitute a binding agreement to submit for redemption or sell to the Public Sale Selling Stockholder such Preferred Securities as are included therein on the terms and conditions applicable to such redemption or sale.

(d) Exclusions.  The tag-along and redemption rights provided in this Section 3 shall not apply: (i) in the case of a transfer to a Permitted Transferee, (ii) to a pledge that creates a mere security interest, provided that the pledgee thereof agrees in writing in advance to be bound by and comply with all applicable provisions of this Agreement to the same extent as if it were the Stockholder making such pledge, (iii) to any lien or pledge outstanding as of the date of this Agreement, (iv) to any sale, transfer or other disposition of Securities pursuant to Rule 144, (v) to a transfer of the Series C Preferred Stock pursuant to the Beacon APA (A) from the Company to the escrow agent, (B) from the escrow agent to the Company or any of its affiliates or to Beacon or any of its stockholders or (C) from Beacon to any of its stockholders or (vi) to any sale, transfer or other disposition of Securities following a Mandatory Conversion (as defined in the Series E Certificate of Designation); provided that in the case of clause(s) (i) or (ii), the Stockholder shall deliver notice to the holders of Preferred Securities of such pledge, gift or transfer and such Common Securities shall at all times remain subject to the terms and restrictions set forth in this Agreement and such transferee shall, as a condition to such transfer or pledge, deliver a counterpart signature page to this Agreement as confirmation that such transferee shall be bound by all the terms and conditions of this Agreement as a Stockholder (but only with respect to the securities so transferred to the transferee).  For the purposes of any calculation in this Section 3 using the number of Common Securities or Preferred Securities held as of the date of this Agreement, such calculations shall, for a transferee pursuant to this Section 3(d), instead use the number of Securities received by such transferee pursuant hereto.
 
(e) Volume Exclusions.  In addition to the exclusions set forth in Section 3(d) above, the tag-along rights and related obligations of the Company with respect to redemptions provided in Sections 3(a), 3(b) and 3(c) shall not apply to Sales by a Stockholder of up to 10% of the Common Securities held by such Stockholder as of the date that such Stockholder first became party to this Agreement in any consecutive twelve month period.  The following calculation shall be used in determining the percentage of a Stockholder’s Common Securities that are being sold or otherwise transferred in any given Sale: (x) the number of Common Securities previously sold pursuant to this Section 3(e) by such Stockholder and proposed to be sold by such Stockholder divided by (y) the total number of Common Securities held by such Stockholder as of the date of this Agreement (as adjusted for stock splits, combinations and the like).
 
4. Preemptive Rights.
 
 
12

 
 
(a) If the Company or any of its Subsidiaries proposes to issue additional equity securities, including any warrants, options or other rights to acquire equity of the Company or any of its subsidiaries or debt securities that are convertible into or exchangeable or exercisable for equity securities of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries (with the exception of any issuance (i) in connection with any acquisition of assets of another Person by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, whether by purchase of stock, merger, consolidation, purchase of all or substantially all of the assets of such Person or otherwise (excluding any issuance for purposes of financing such transaction) approved by the Board and the requisite holders of the Series E Preferred Stock and Series E-2 Preferred Stock to the extent required under the Series E Certificate of Designation, (ii) Exempted Securities (as such term is defined in the Series E Certificate of Designation), (iii) in an underwritten public offering resulting in gross proceeds of at least $50,000,000 and at a price per share pursuant to which the Company’s market capitalization would be at least $175,000,000 and (iv) approved by holders of the majority of the Series E Preferred Stock and Series E-2 Preferred Stock, voting as a separate class (in each case, having been approved in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and the Series E Certificate of Designation, to the extent applicable)) (“Preemptive Securities”), the Company shall provide written notice (an “Issuance Notice”) to each holder of Preferred Securities of such anticipated issuance no later than twenty-two (22) Business Days prior to the anticipated issuance date.  Such notice shall set forth the principal terms and conditions of the issuance, including a description of the Preemptive Securities proposed to be issued, the proposed purchase price for such Preemptive Securities and the anticipated issuance date.  Each holder of Preferred Securities shall have the right to purchase a number of Preemptive Securities determined by multiplying (i) the number of Preemptive Securities proposed to be issued, by (ii) a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of shares of Preferred Stock held by such Stockholder on an as-converted basis at the time the Issuance Notice for such Preemptive Securities is given and the denominator of which is the total number of shares of the Company’s Common Stock issued and outstanding on a fully-diluted, as converted, basis on the date of the Issuance Notice (the “Pro Rata Portion”).  Each holder of Preferred Securities that desires to purchase Preemptive Securities at the price and on the terms and conditions specified in the Company’s notice must deliver an irrevocable written notice to the Company (a “Preemptive Exercise Notice”) no later than ten (10) Business Days after the delivery of the Issuance Notice, setting forth (x) the number of such Preemptive Securities for which such right is exercised (which such number shall not exceed such Stockholder’s Pro Rata Portion of such Preemptive Securities) and (y) the maximum number of additional Preemptive Securities that such Stockholder would be willing to purchase in excess of such Stockholder’s Pro Rata Portion in the event that any other Stockholder or other Person entitled to exercise preemptive rights with respect to such issuance elects not to purchase its full Pro Rata Portion of such Preemptive Securities.
 
(b) In the event the Stockholders with preemptive rights pursuant to clause (a) above do not purchase all such Preemptive Securities in accordance with the procedures set forth in such clause (a), the Company shall have one hundred twenty (120) days after the anticipated issuance date to sell to other Persons the remaining Preemptive Securities at the price and on such terms and conditions that are no more favorable to such other Persons than those specified in the Company’s notices to the Stockholders pursuant to Section 4(a).  If the Company fails to sell such Preemptive Securities within one hundred twenty (120) days of the anticipated issuance date provided in the notices given to the Stockholders pursuant to Section 4(a), the Company shall not thereafter issue or sell any Preemptive Securities without first offering such Preemptive Securities to the holders of Preferred Securities in the manner provided in this Section 4.
 
(c) The election by a Stockholder not to exercise its preemptive rights under this Section 4 in any one instance shall not affect such Stockholder’s right (other than in respect of a reduction in its Pro Rata Portion) as to any future issuances under this Section 4.
 
(d) All costs and expenses incurred by the Company in connection with its obligations under this Section 4, including all attorneys fees and charges, all accounting fees and charges and all finders, brokerage or investment banking fees, charges or commissions, shall be paid by the Company.
 
 
13

 
 
(e) Notwithstanding any provision hereof to the contrary, in lieu of complying with the provisions of this Section 4, the Company may elect to give the Issuance Notice to the Stockholders with preemptive rights pursuant to Section 4(a) within ten (10) days after the issuance of Preemptive Securities and thereafter give such Stockholders the right to purchase such number of Preemptive Securities as would provide them with the same ownership as if the Issuance Notice and preemptive rights had been provided prior to the issuance of the Preemptive Securities, all on the same terms and conditions as would otherwise apply under this Section 4.
 
(f) The preemptive rights under this Section 4 shall terminate on such date as of which less than 25% of the shares of Series E Preferred Stock and Series E-2 Preferred Stock collectively issued in the Transactions remain outstanding.
 
5. Certain Sales.  At any time on or after December 5, 2016, to the extent a Stockholder holds any Preferred Securities (the “Remaining Securities”), such Stockholder may provide notice to the Company of its desire to sell all or any portion of the Remaining Securities.  Upon receipt of such notice, the Company will use its commercially reasonable efforts to assist such Stockholder in facilitating a sale, transfer or other disposition of the Remaining Securities (which, for avoidance of doubt, shall not include any obligation to pursue or consummate a Change of Control).  Alternatively, upon receipt of such notice, the Company may, at its sole option, redeem the Remaining Securities at a price per share equal to (x) the number of shares of Common Stock into which a share of the Remaining Securities would be convertible pursuant to the certificate of designation relating to such series of Shares, multiplied by (y) the fair market value of a share of Common Stock as determined in accordance with the terms of the certificate of designation relating to such series of Shares.
 
6. No Mandatory Redemption.  For the avoidance of doubt and notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, any redemption of Shares or other securities by the Company referenced herein shall not be mandatory and shall be made only at the Company’s sole and exclusive option, unless and then only to the extent specifically agreed to by the Company (at its sole and exclusive option) in writing in response to a redemption request made under this Agreement.

(g) In addition to the foregoing rights set forth in this Section 7, so long as any Stockholder (other than Jefferies) holding at least 8% of the outstanding shares of Series E Preferred Stock, Series E-1 Preferred Stock or Series E-2 Preferred Stock as of the date hereof owns at least 25% of the shares of Series E Preferred Stock, Series E-1 Preferred Stock or Series E-2 Preferred Stock, respectively, acquired by it in the Transactions, such Stockholder shall have the right to appoint one non-voting representative to attend each meeting of the Board and each committee thereof (an “Investor Observer”).  Each Investor Observer will be entitled to receive copies of all notices, minutes, consents and other materials and information that the Company provides to the Board; provided that (a) the Investor Observer shall execute a confidentiality agreement in a form reasonably acceptable to the Company and the investor designating such Investor Observer, and (b) the Company may require such Investor Observer to be recused from any meeting and may redact such materials on advice of counsel in connection with matters involving the attorney-client privilege or conflicts of interest.

8. Affirmative Covenant.  If any Applicable Action is required to be approved pursuant to Section 4(e) of the Series E Certificate of Designation and is approved pursuant to Section 4(e) of the Series E Certificate of Designation, then Oak and any other Stockholder who owns, beneficially or of record, shares of Series C Preferred Stock shall (a) provide an affirmative vote or written consent (with respect to all shares of Series C Preferred Stock held of record or beneficially by them or over which they exercise voting control) for such Applicable Action pursuant to Section 4(d) of the Series C Certificate of Designation, or (b) in lieu of the affirmative vote or written consent contemplated by the foregoing clause (a), provide an affirmative vote or written consent (with respect to all shares of Series C Preferred Stock held of record or beneficially by them or over which they exercise voting control) to waive the provisions of Section 4(d) of the Series C Certificate of Designation (pursuant to Section 11 of the Series C Certificate of Designation) with respect to such Applicable Action.  As used herein, the term “Applicable Action” means any action with respect to which the Company is required to obtain the affirmative vote or written consent of any holders Series C Preferred Stock pursuant to Section 4(d) of the Series C Certificate of Designation (whether together as a single class with the holders of Series D Preferred Stock and Series D-1 Preferred Stock or acting on their own due to the Series D Preferred Stock and Series D-1 Preferred Stock not being entitled to participate in such affirmative vote or written consent for any reason).

(h) Severability.  If any provision of this Agreement is prohibited by law or otherwise determined to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, the provision that would otherwise be prohibited, invalid or unenforceable shall be deemed amended to apply to the broadest extent that it would be valid and enforceable, and the invalidity or unenforceability of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement so long as this Agreement as so modified continues to express, without material change, the original intentions of the parties as to the subject matter hereof and the prohibited nature, invalidity or unenforceability of the provision(s) in question does not substantially impair the respective expectations or reciprocal obligations of the parties or the practical realization of the benefits that would otherwise be conferred upon the parties.  The parties will endeavor in good faith negotiations to replace the prohibited, invalid or unenforceable provision(s) with a valid provision(s), the effect of which comes as close as possible to that of the prohibited, invalid or unenforceable provision(s).
 
(i) Entire Agreement; Amendments.  This supersedes all other prior oral or written agreements between the Company, the Stockholders, their affiliates and Persons acting on their behalf with respect to the matters discussed herein (including, without limitation, the Prior Agreement), and this Agreement contains the entire understanding of the parties with respect to the matters covered herein and therein.  No provision of this Agreement may be amended or waived other than by an instrument in writing signed by the Company and the Required Stockholders.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, no amendment to this Agreement shall disproportionately and adversely affect the rights of any Stockholder relative to the rights of all of the Stockholders without such affected Stockholder’s consent.
