As part of our engagement, we will: (a) assist you in analyzing and evaluating the business, operations and financial position of each suitable Prospect; (b) assist the Company with its due diligence efforts related to each potential Strategic Transaction; (c) assist the Company in structuring and negotiating each Strategic Transaction; and, (d) be available at your request to meet with your Board of Directors to discuss any proposed Strategic Transaction and its financial implications..

In the event that another party acts as financial advisor to the Company in connection with a Strategic Transaction prior to the expiration of the Tail Period, the Company shall seek to engage BHP to provide a fairness opinion for the Strategic Transaction.

The shares underlying the Placement Agent Warrants shall have standard piggyback registration rights, shall have a cashless exercise provision, shall be non-redeemable and shall be included in the registration statement covering the shares issued in the Recapitalization Financing. Compensation in connection with a financing occurring subsequent to the Recapitalization Financing (a "Subsequent Financing") shall be seven (7%) percent cash commission and ten (10%) percent Placement Agent Warrant Fee. The Company shall provide to BHP periodic reimbursement of all out-of-pocket expenses, which amount shall not exceed $10,000 without the prior written approval of the Company.

Additionally, if prior to the expiration of the Tail Period, the Company undertakes an underwritten public offering, BHP shall have the right participate in such underwriting in an amount to be negotiated in good faith between BHP and the managing underwriter. BHP is currently division of Pali Capital Inc., a European American Investment Group Company.
