If the Company has not obtained the Shareholder Approval (as defined below), then the Company may not issue shares of Common Stock upon exercise of the Warrants (such number of shares of Common Stock, the "Issuable Maximum") such that the aggregate number of shares of Common Stock to be issued pursuant to the Agreement together with shares to be issued in any other transaction which may be deemed by NASDAQ to be a single "transaction" under Marketplace Rule 4350(i) would be in excess of 19.9% of the issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock immediately prior to the Closing. If on any date of exercise: (A) the aggregate number of shares of Common Stock that would then be issuable upon exercise in full of this Warrant would exceed the Issuable Maximum, and (B) the Company shall not have previously obtained the vote of shareholders (the "Shareholder Approval"), if any, as may be required by the applicable rules and regulations of the NASDAQ (or any successor entity) applicable to approve the issuance of shares of Common Stock in excess of the Issuable Maximum pursuant to the terms hereof, then the Company shall issue to the Holder up to the number of shares of Common Stock available within the Issuable Maximum and, with respect to the remainder of the shares then issuable under the Warrant for which an exercise in accordance with the applicable exercise price would result in an issuance of shares of Common Stock in excess of the Issuable Maximum (the "Excess Warrant Shares"), the Holder shall have the option to require the Company to use its best efforts to obtain the Shareholder Approval applicable to such issuance as soon as is possible. The Company and the Holder understand and agree that shares of Common Stock issued to and then held by the Holder as a result of exercise of this Warrant shall not be entitled to cast votes on any resolution to obtain Shareholder Approval pursuant hereto. If the Company shall succeed in obtaining the Shareholder Approval, the Excess Warrant Shares shall become fully exercisable by the Holder. 12 IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have caused this Agreement to be duly executed by their respective authorized signatories as of the date first indicated above.
