4.1 Adjustment for Stock Splits and Stock Dividends. The Warrant Price of this Warrant and the number of Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise of this Warrant (or any shares of stock or other securities at the time issuable upon exercise of this Warrant) shall each be proportionally adjusted to reflect any stock dividend, stock split or reverse stock split, or other similar event affecting the number of outstanding shares of the Common Stock.

4.5 Adjustments Due to Dilutive Issuances.
 
(a) Adjustment of Warrant Shares for Dilutive Issuances.

4

 
(i) the number of Warrant Shares shall be increased by such number of shares of Common Stock as shall result in the number of Warrant Shares for which this Warrant shall be exercisable to equal (x) the sum of the number of Shares and Additional Investor Shares then issued and issuable to the Investor pursuant to the Purchase Agreement at the then-prevailing Adjusted Purchase Price, (y) multiplied by 0.50; and
 
(ii) if the Dilutive Issuance shall consist of the issuance, in one or a series of related transactions, of both (x) shares of Common Stock (or securities convertible into or exchangeable for Common Stock) (collectively, “Dilutive Shares”) and (y) warrants, options to purchase or rights to subscribe for Common Stock (or securities convertible into or exchangeable for Common Stock) (collectively, “Dilutive Warrants”), then the number of Warrant Shares shall be further increased by such number of shares of Common Stock as shall result in the ratio of the sum of the Shares and Additional Investor Shares to Warrant Shares being equal to the ratio of Dilutive Shares to Dilutive Warrants issued or issuable in the Dilutive Issuance.
 
(b) Adjustment of Warrant Price. In addition to the adjustments provided for elsewhere in this Warrant, if the Company shall consummate a Dilutive Issuance described in paragraph (a) above that includes Dilutive Warrants with an exercise price per share of Common Stock (determined in the manner described in Section 2.2 of the Purchase Agreement) less than the Warrant Price (as most recently adjusted prior to such Dilutive Issuance), then the Warrant Price shall be reduced, concurrently with such issuance, to such lower exercise price per share of Common Stock in such Dilutive Issuance.
 
4.6 Notice of Adjustments. The Company shall promptly give written notice of each adjustment or readjustment of the Warrant Price or the number or types of securities issuable upon exercise of this Warrant. The notice shall describe the adjustment or readjustment, including the kind and amount of stock or other securities or property for which this Warrant thereafter shall be exercisable, and show in reasonable detail the facts on which the adjustment or readjustment is based.
 
4.7 No Change Necessary. The form of this Warrant need not be changed because of any adjustment in the Warrant Price or in the number of shares or class of securities issuable upon its exercise.
 
4.8 Reservation of Stock. If and when necessary, the Company will take such corporate action as may, in the opinion of its counsel, be necessary to provide sufficient reserves of shares of Common Stock, issuable upon exercise of the Warrants. The Company agrees that its issuance of this Warrant shall constitute full authority to its officers who are charged with the duty of executing certificates to execute and issue the necessary certificates for Warrant Shares upon the exercise of this Warrant. If at any time the number of shares of Common Stock or other securities issuable upon exercise of this Warrant shall not be sufficient to effect the exercise of this Warrant, the Company of Common Stock or other securities issuable upon exercise of this Warrant as shall be sufficient for such purpose. All shares of Common Stock issued upon exercise of the Warrant shall be validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable.
