(assuming the full conversion of all shares of Series B Preferred then held by such Holder). The Company shall not have the right to redeem shares of Series B Preferred except with prior written consent of the Holder thereof. For so long as any shares of Series B Preferred are outstanding, no dividend, whether in cash or property, shall be paid or declared, nor shall any other distribution be made, on any other Equity Securities, nor shall any other Equity Securities be purchased, redeemed or otherwise acquired for value by the Company or any subsidiary thereof, other than dividends or other distributions in which the Holders are entitled to participate consistent with this Section 3.

All accrued and unpaid dividends on the shares being converted pursuant to this Section 6(a) shall be paid in cash on the applicable Conversion Date.

(c) Mechanics of Conversion.

i. Delivery of Certificate Upon Conversion. As soon as practicable after the Conversion Date, the Company shall deliver, or cause to be delivered to each Holder a certificate or certificates, which will contain any restrictive legends required by the Securities Act, representing the number of Conversion Shares being acquired upon the conversion of shares of Series B Preferred then held by such Holder. Upon written request of a Holder, the Company shall use its best efforts to deliver any certificate or certificates required to be delivered by the Company under this Section 6 electronically through the Depository Trust Company or another established clearing corporation performing similar functions. The Person in whose name the certificate or certificates for Common Stock are to be issued shall be deemed to have become a stockholder of Common Stock of record on the date of such occurrence.

ii. Reservation of Shares Issuable Upon Conversion. The Company covenants that it will at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized and unissued shares of Common Stock for the sole purpose of issuance upon conversion of the Series B Preferred, free from preemptive rights or any other actual contingent purchase rights of Persons other than the Holders of Series B Preferred, not less than such aggregate number of shares of the Common Stock as are issuable (taking into account the adjustments of Section 7) upon the conversion of all outstanding shares of Series B Preferred. The Company covenants that all shares of Common Stock so issuable shall, upon issue, be duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable.

iii. Fractional Shares. No fractional shares or scrip representing fractional shares shall be issued upon the conversion of Series B Preferred. As to any fraction of a share which a Holder would otherwise be entitled to acquire upon such conversion, the Company shall, at its election, either pay a cash adjustment in respect of such final fraction in an amount equal to such fraction multiplied by the average closing price per share of Common Stock on the NYSE MKT, or any other trading market or exchange on which the Common Stock may then trade, for the ten-day period ending on the day prior to such Conversion Date, or round up to the next whole share.

iv. Transfer Taxes. Any transfer, documentary stamp or similar taxes arising on account of a conversion of any shares of Series B Preferred shall be the responsibility of and paid by the Holder. Furthermore, the Company will not be required to pay any tax that may be payable in respect of any transfer involved in the issuance and delivery of any such certificate upon conversion. The Company will not be required to issue or deliver such certificates unless or until the Person or Persons requesting the issuance thereof will have paid to the Company the amount of such tax or shall have established to the satisfaction of the Company that such tax has been paid.

(d) Record Holder. The Person or Persons entitled to receive the Conversion Shares shall be treated for all purposes as the record holder or holders of such shares on the Conversion Date until the subsequent transfer thereof.

Section 7. Certain Adjustments.

(a) Stock Dividends and Stock Splits. If the Company, at any time while Series B Preferred is outstanding: (i) pays a stock dividend or otherwise makes a distribution or distributions payable in shares of Common Stock on shares of Common Stock or any other Common Stock Equivalents, (ii) subdivides outstanding shares of Common Stock into a larger number of shares, or (iii) combines (including by way of a reverse stock split or otherwise) outstanding shares of Common Stock into a smaller number of shares, then the Conversion Ratio shall be multiplied by a fraction of which the numerator will be the number of shares of Common Stock (excluding any treasury shares of the Company) outstanding immediately after such event and of which the denominator will be the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately before such event. Any adjustment made pursuant to this Section 7(a) will become effective immediately after the record date for the determination of stockholders entitled to receive such dividend or distribution and will become effective immediately after the effective date in the case of a subdivision or combination. The provisions of this Section 7(a) shall similarly apply to successive actions contemplated by clauses (i), (ii) and (iii) above.

(b) Fundamental Transaction. If, at any time while Series B Preferred is outstanding, (A) the Company effects any merger or consolidation of the Company with or into another Person, (B) the Company effects any sale of all or substantially all of its assets in one transaction or a series of related transactions, (C) any tender offer or exchange offer (whether by the Company or another Person) is completed pursuant to which holders of Common Stock are permitted to tender or exchange their shares for other securities, cash or property, or (D) the Company effects any reclassification of the Common Stock or any compulsory share exchange pursuant to which the Common Stock is effectively converted into or exchanged for other securities, cash or property (any such event, a “Fundamental Transaction”), then the Holders shall have the right to receive, for each Conversion Share that would have been issuable upon such conversion immediately prior to the occurrence of such Fundamental Transaction (assuming the full conversion of all shares of Series B Preferred then held by them), the same kind and amount of securities, cash or property as it would have been entitled to receive upon the occurrence of such Fundamental Transaction if it had been, immediately prior to such Fundamental Transaction, the holder of one share of Common Stock (the “Alternate Consideration”), at the same time as the holders of Common Stock receive such consideration. If holders of Common Stock are given any choice as to the securities, cash or property to be received in a Fundamental Transaction, then each Holder shall be given the same choice as to the Alternate Consideration it shall receive in such Fundamental Transaction.

(c) Calculations. All calculations under this Section 7 will be made to the nearest share or the nearest cent, as the case may be. For purposes of this Section 7, the number of shares of Common Stock deemed to be issued and outstanding as of a given date will be the number of shares of Common Stock (excluding any treasury shares of the Company) actually issued and outstanding.

(d) Notice to the Holders. Whenever the Conversion Ratio is adjusted pursuant to any provision of this Section 7, the Company shall make available for inspection during regular business hours, at its principal executive offices or at such other place as may be designated by the Company, a statement, signed by its chief executive officer, showing in detail the facts requiring such adjustment and the Conversion Ratio that shall be in effect after such adjustment.

Any and all notices or other communications or deliveries to be provided by the Company hereunder shall be in writing and delivered personally, by facsimile, electronic mail, or sent by a nationally recognized overnight courier service addressed to each Holder at the address of such Holder appearing on the books of the Company, or if no such address appears on the books of the Company, at the principal place of business of such Holder. Any notice or other communication or deliveries hereunder shall be deemed given and effective on the earliest of the Business Day following the date of mailing, if sent by nationally recognized overnight courier service, or upon actual receipt by the party to whom such notice is required to be given.

(b) Lost or Mutilated Series B Preferred Certificate. If a Holder’s Series B Preferred certificate, if any, becomes mutilated, lost, stolen or destroyed, the Company shall execute and deliver, in exchange and substitution for and upon cancellation of a mutilated certificate, or in lieu of or in substitution for a lost, stolen or destroyed certificate, a new certificate for the shares of Series B Preferred so mutilated, lost, stolen or destroyed, but only upon receipt of evidence of such loss, theft or destruction of such certificate, and of the ownership thereof reasonably satisfactory to the Company and any of additional documentation the transfer agent of the Company may require.

(c) Governing Law. All questions concerning the construction, validity, enforcement and interpretation of this Certificate of Designation will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Delaware, without regard to the principles of conflict of laws thereof. The Company and, by accepting Series B Preferred, each Holder agree that all legal proceedings concerning the interpretation, enforcement and defense of the transactions contemplated by this Certificate of Designation (whether brought against the Company or a Holder or their respective affiliates, directors, officers, shareholders, employees or agents) may be commenced only in the state and federal courts sitting in City of Wilmington, Delaware. The Company and, by accepting Series B Preferred, each Holder hereby irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts for the adjudication of any dispute hereunder or in connection herewith or with any transaction contemplated hereby or discussed herein, and hereby irrevocably waive, and agree not to assert in any suit, action or proceeding, any claim that it is not personally subject to the jurisdiction of such courts, or such courts are improper or inconvenient venue for such proceeding.

and notice thereof. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to limit in any way any right to serve process in any other manner permitted by applicable law.

(d) Waiver. Any waiver by the Company or a Holder of a breach of any provision of this Certificate of Designation shall not operate as or be construed to be a waiver of any other breach of such provision or of any breach of any other provision of this Certificate of Designation or a waiver by any other Holders. The failure of the Company or a Holder to insist upon strict adherence to any term of this Certificate of Designation on one or more occasions shall not be considered a waiver or deprive that party (or any other Holder) of the right thereafter to insist upon strict adherence to that term or any other term of this Certificate of Designation. Any waiver by the Company or a Holder must be in writing.

(e) Severability. If any provision of this Certificate of Designation is invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the balance of this Certificate of Designation shall remain in effect, and if any provision is inapplicable to any Person or circumstance, it shall nevertheless remain applicable to all other Persons and circumstances.
