b. Indemnification Procedure. Any Indemnitee entitled to indemnification under this Section 9 will give written notice to the Company of any matters giving rise to a claim for indemnification; provided, that the failure of any party entitled to indemnification hereunder to give notice as provided herein shall not relieve the Company of its obligations under this Section 9 except to the extent that the Company is actually prejudiced by such failure to give notice. In case any action, proceeding or claim is brought against the Indemnitee in respect of which indemnification is sought hereunder, the Company shall be entitled to participate in and, unless in the reasonable judgment of the Company a conflict of interest between it and the Indemnitee may exist with respect of such action, proceeding or claim, to assume the defense thereof with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnitee. In the event that the Company advises an Indemnitee that it will contest such a claim for indemnification hereunder, or fails, within thirty (30) days of receipt of any indemnification notice to notify, in writing, such person of its election to defend, settle or compromise, at its sole cost and expense, any action, proceeding or claim (or discontinues its defense at any time after it commences such defense), then the Indemnitee may, at its option, defend, settle or otherwise compromise or pay such action or claim. In any event, unless and until the Company elects in writing to assume and does so assume the defense of any s uch claim, proceeding or action, the Indemnitee’s costs and expenses arising out of the defense, settlement or compromise of any such action, claim or proceeding shall be losses subject to indemnification hereunder.  The Indemnitee shall cooperate fully with the Company in connection with any negotiation or defense of any such action or claim by the Company and shall furnish to the Company all information reasonably available to the Indemnitee which relates to such action or claim. The Company shall keep the Indemnitee fully apprised at all times as to the status of the defense or any settlement negotiations with respect thereto. If the Company elects to defend any such action or claim, then the Indemnitee shall be entitled to participate in such defense with counsel of its choice at its sole cost and expense. The Company shall not be liable for any settlement of any action, claim or proceeding effected without its prior written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. Notwi thstanding anything in this Section 9 to the contrary, the Company shall not, without the Indemnitee’s prior written consent, settle or compromise any claim or consent to entry of any judgment in respect thereof which imposes any future obligation on the Indemnitee or which does not include, as an unconditional term thereof, the giving by the claimant or the plaintiff to the Indemnitee of a release from all liability in respect of such claim. The indemnification required by this Section 9 shall be made by periodic payments of the amount thereof during the course of investigation or defense, as and when bills are received or expense, loss, damage or liability is incurred, so long as the Indemnitee irrevocably agrees to refund such moneys if it is ultimately determined by a court of competent jurisdiction that such party was not entitled to indemnification. The indemnity agree ments contained herein shall be in addition to (a) any cause of action or similar rights of the Indemnitee against the Company or others, and (b) any liabilities the Company may be subject to pursuant to the law.

c. Headings.  The headings of this Agreement are for convenience of reference and shall not form part of, or affect the interpretation of, this Agreement.
 
d. Severability.  If any provision of this Agreement shall be invalid or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such invalidity or unenforceability shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the remainder of this Agreement in that jurisdiction or the validity or enforceability of any provision of this Agreement in any other jurisdiction.

k. Termination.  In the event that any Closing shall not have occurred with respect to any Buyer obligated to purchase Notes as listed on the Schedule of Buyers on or before the third Business Day following the date such Buyer executes this Agreement due to the Company’s or such Buyer’s failure to satisfy the conditions set forth in Sections 7 and 8 above (and the nonbreaching party’s failure to waive such unsat isfied condition(s)), the nonbreaching party shall have the option to terminate this Agreement with respect to such breaching party at the close of business on such date without liability of any party to any other party; provided, however, that if this Agreement is terminated pursuant to this Section 10(k), the Company shall be obligated to pay such Buyer (so long as such Buyer is not a breaching party) its reimbursement amount as set forth in Section 4(h) as if such Buyer had purchased the Notes and the Shares.

36

 
 
q. Independent Nature of Buyers.  The obligations of each Buyer hereunder are several and not joint with the obligations of any other Buyer, and no Buyer shall be responsible in any way for the performance of the obligations of any other Buyer hereunder.  Each Buyer shall be responsible only for its own representations, warranties, agreements and covenants hereunder.  The decision of each Buyer to purchase the Securities pursuant to this Agreement has been made by such Buyer independently of any other Buyer and independently of any information, materials, statements or opinions as to the business, aff airs, operations, assets, properties, liabilities, results of operations, condition (financial or otherwise) or prospects of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries which may have been made or given by any other Buyer or by any agent or employee of any other Buyer, and no Buyer or any of its agents or employees shall have any liability to any other Buyer (or any other Person or entity) relating to or arising from any such information, materials, statements or opinions.  Nothing contained herein, and no action taken by any Buyer pursuant hereto or thereto, shall be deemed to constitute the Buyers as a partnership, an association, a joint venture or any other kind of entity, or create a presumption that the Buyers are in any way acting in concert or as a group with respect to such obligations or the transactions contemplated hereby.  Each Buyer shall be entitled to independently protect and enforce its rights, including the rights arising out of this Agreement, the Notes, the Warrants, the W arrant Shares, the Conversion Shares and the other Transaction Documents, and it shall not be necessary for any other Buyer to be joined as an additional party in any proceeding for such purpose.

s. Like Treatment of Buyers.  Except with respect to the economic terms set forth in the Transaction Documents, from the date hereof so long as any Notes and Warrants shall be outstanding, no consideration shall be offered or paid to any Person to amend or consent to a waiver or modification of any provision of any of the Transaction Documents as any transaction documents relating to any Bridge Financing Indebtedness unless the same consideration is also offered to all of the parties to the Transaction Documents. Further, the Company shall not make any payments or issue any securities to any Buyer in amounts which are di sproportionate to the respective numbers of outstanding Common Stock held by any Buyer at any applicable time.  For clarification purposes, this provision constitutes a separate right granted to each Buyer by the Company and negotiated separately by each Buyer, and is intended for the Company to treat the Buyers as a class and shall not in any way be construed as the Buyers acting in concert or as a group with respect to the purchase, disposition or voting of the Conversion Shares, the Warrants Shares or otherwise.
 
t. Waiver of Past Defaults.  Each Buyer who is receiving a new Note in connection with a Debt Conversion or an Amended and Restated Original Warrant hereby waives any existing defaults or events of default in connection with any notes or warrants that were issued to such Buyer in any connection with any Bridge Financing Indebtedness or Prior Financing, as the case may be, but not in connection with any transaction document related to any Bridge Financing Indebtedness or Prior Financing, except that the transaction described in the Form 8-K filed by the Company on November 18, 2010 with the SEC shall not be deemed in viol ation or default of any transaction document related to any Bridge Financing Indebtedness or Prior Financing, as the case may be, nor confer any repricing or issuance rights under section 3.05 of any such notes or Section 4 of any such warrants.  Harborview Master Fund, L.P. and Monarch Capital Fund, Ltd., hereby waive any defaults (i) under Section 7(b) of that certain Registration Rights Agreement dated as of April 23, 2010, by and among the Company and the parties thereto, in connection with the entering into the Registration Rights Agreement pursuant to this Agreement, and (ii) pursuant to Section 5(g) of that certain Securities Purchase Agreement dated as of April 23, 2010, by and among the Company and the parties thereto.
