Section 2. Amendment to Amended Agreement.  Section 5.5 of the Amended Agreement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety as follows:
 
“5.5           Chief Financial Officer.  As soon as practicable after the Share Exchange, the Company shall employ an English-speaking Chief Financial Officer who shall have experience with financial reporting companies under Sarbanes-Oxley and other federal or state securities laws and shall also meet the approval and requirements of the Lead Investor, which such approval shall not be unreasonably withheld (a “Qualified CFO”).  To secure the Company’s employment of a Qualified CFO, $1,500,000 (the “Chief Financial Officer Holdback”) of the Offering proceeds shall be held in escrow and subject to the terms and provisions of the Holdback Escrow Agreement.  Notwithstanding the foregoing: (i) the Lead Investor may in its sole discretion authorize, in writing, the escrow agent appointed pursuant to the Holdback Escrow Agreement to disburse a portion of the Chief Financial Officer Holdback, such portion not to exceed $750,000 in the aggregate, to the Company (a “Good Faith Disbursement”); and (ii) the Company and the Investor Representative agree that, commencing on December 1, 2011 and on the first day of each successive month thereafter (each, a “Monthly Disbursement Date”), the Escrow Agent shall cause to be disbursed $100,000 (the “Disbursement Amount”) of the Chief Financial Officer Holdback from the Escrow Account to the Company (each, a “Monthly Disbursement”) until all of the Chief Financial Officer Holdback is disbursed to the Company; provided, however, that, if prior to giving effect to a Monthly Disbursement, the remaining amount of the Chief Financial Holdback is less than $100,000 (a “Disbursement Shortfall”), the Disbursement Amount with respect to such Monthly Disbursement shall be equal to the amount of such Disbursement Shortfall.  Any portion of the Chief Financial Officer Holdback not disbursed pursuant to a Good Faith Disbursement or a Monthly Disbursement shall continue to be held in escrow in accordance with the terms and provisions of the Holdback Escrow Agreement.”

Section 4. Counterparts. This Second Amendment may be executed in any number of counterparts, all of which will constitute one and the same instrument and shall become effective when one or more counterparts have been signed by each of the parties and delivered to the other party.  Facsimile or other electronic transmission of any signed original document shall be deemed the same as delivery of an original.
