(p)           Dilution.   The Company's executive officers and directors understand the nature of the Securities being sold hereby and recognize that the issuance of the Securities will have a potential dilutive effect on the equity holdings of other holders of the Company’s equity or rights to receive equity of the Company.  The board of directors of the Company has concluded, in its good faith business judgment that the issuance of the Securities is in the best interests of the Company.  The Company specifically acknowledges that its obligation to issue the Conversion Shares upon conversion of the Note and the Warrant Shares upon exercise of the Warrants is binding upon the Company and enforceable regardless of the dilution such issuance may have on the ownership interests of other shareholders of the Company or parties entitled to receive equity of the Company.

                      7.1.           Conversion of Note.

(a)           Upon the conversion of a Note or part thereof, the Company shall, at its own cost and expense, take all necessary action, including obtaining and delivering, an opinion of counsel to assure that the Company's transfer agent shall issue stock certificates in the name of Subscriber (or its permitted nominee) or such other persons as designated by Subscriber and in such denominations to be specified at conversion representing the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon such conversion.  The Company warrants that no instructions other than these instructions have been or will be given to the transfer agent of the Company's Common Stock and that the certificates representing such shares shall contain no legend other than the legend set forth in Section 4(h).  If and when Subscriber sells the Shares, assuming (i) a registration statement including such Shares for registration, filed with the Commission is effective and the prospectus, as supplemented or amended, contained therein is current and (ii) Subscriber or its agent confirms in writing to the transfer agent that Subscriber has complied with the prospectus delivery requirements, the Company will reissue the Shares without restrictive legend and the Shares will be free-trading, and freely transferable.  In the event that the Shares are sold in a manner that complies with an exemption from registration, the Company will promptly instruct its counsel to issue to the transfer agent an opinion permitting removal of the legend indefinitely, if pursuant to Rule 144(b)(1)(i) of the 1933 Act, or for 90 days if pursuant to the other provisions of Rule 144 of the 1933 Act, provided that Subscriber delivers all reasonably requested representations in support of such opinion.

(b)           Subscriber will give notice of its decision to exercise its right to convert the Note, interest, or part thereof by telecopying, or otherwise delivering a completed Notice of Conversion (a form of which is annexed as Exhibit A to the Note) to the Company via confirmed telecopier transmission or otherwise pursuant to Section 13(a) of this Agreement.  Subscriber will not be required to surrender the Note until the Note has been fully converted or satisfied.  Each date on which a Notice of Conversion is telecopied to the Company in accordance with the provisions hereof by 6 PM Eastern Time (“ET”) (or if received by the Company after 6 PM ET, then the next business day) shall be deemed a “Conversion Date.”  The Company will itself or cause the Company’s transfer agent to transmit the Company's Common Stock certificates representing the Conversion Shares issuable upon conversion of the Note to Subscriber via express courier for receipt by Subscriber within three (3) business days after the Conversion Date (such third day being the "Delivery Date").  In the event the Conversion Shares are electronically transferable, then delivery of the Shares must be made by electronic transfer provided request for such electronic transfer has been made by the Subscriber.   A Note representing the balance of the Note not so converted will be provided by the Company to Subscriber if requested by Subscriber, provided Subscriber delivers the original Note to the Company.

(c)           The Company understands that a delay in the delivery of the Conversion Shares in the form required pursuant to Section 7.1 hereof, or the Mandatory Redemption Amount described in Section 7.2 hereof, respectively, later than the Delivery Date or the Mandatory Redemption Payment Date (as hereinafter defined) could result in economic loss to the Subscriber.  As compensation to Subscriber for such loss, the Company agrees to pay (as liquidated damages and not as a penalty) to Subscriber for late issuance of Conversion Shares in the form required pursuant to Section 7.1 hereof upon Conversion of the Note, the amount of $100 per business day after the Delivery Date for each $10,000 of Note principal amount and interest (and proportionately for other amounts) being converted of the corresponding Conversion Shares which are not timely delivered.  The Company shall pay any payments incurred under this Section upon demand.  Furthermore, in addition to any other remedies which may be available to the Subscriber, in the event that the Company fails for any reason to effect delivery of the Conversion Shares within seven (7) business days after the Delivery Date or make payment within seven (7) business days after the Mandatory Redemption Payment Date (as defined in Section 7.2 below), Subscriber will be entitled to revoke all or part of the relevant Notice of Conversion or rescind all or part of the notice of Mandatory Redemption by delivery of a notice to such effect to the Company whereupon the Company and Subscriber shall each be restored to their respective positions immediately prior to the delivery of such notice, except that the damages payable in connection with the Company’s default shall be payable through the date notice of revocation or rescission is given to the Company.

7.2.           Mandatory Redemption at Subscriber’s Election.  In the event (i) the Company is prohibited from issuing Conversion Shares, (ii) upon the occurrence of any other Event of Default (as defined in the Note or in this Agreement), that continues for more than thirty (30) business days, (iii) a Change in Control (as defined below), or (iv) of the liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company, then at the Subscriber's election, the Company must pay to the Subscriber ten (10) business days after request by Subscriber (“Calculation Period”), a sum of money determined by multiplying up to the outstanding principal amount of the Note designated by Subscriber by 120%, plus accrued but unpaid interest and any other amounts due under the Transaction Documents ("Mandatory Redemption Payment"). The Mandatory Redemption Payment must be received by Subscriber not later than ten (10) business days after request ("Mandatory Redemption Payment Date"). Upon receipt of the Mandatory Redemption Payment, the corresponding Note principal, interest and other amounts will be deemed paid and no longer outstanding.  The Subscriber may rescind the election to receive a Mandatory Redemption Payment at any time until such payment is actually received.  Liquidated damages calculated pursuant to Section 7.1(c) hereof, that have been paid or accrued for the ten day period prior to the actual receipt of the Mandatory Redemption Payment by Subscriber shall be credited against the Mandatory Redemption Payment.  For purposes of this Section 7.2, “Change in Control” shall mean (i) the Company no longer having a class of shares publicly traded or listed on a Principal Market (as defined in Section 9(b) hereto), (ii) the Company  becoming a Subsidiary of another entity (other than a corporation formed by the Company for purposes of reincorporation in another U.S. jurisdiction), (iii) a majority of the board of directors of the Company as of the Closing Date no longer serving as directors of the Company except due to natural causes, and (iv) the sale, lease or transfer of substantially all the assets of the Company or its Subsidiaries.


 
7.3.           Maximum Conversion.  Subscriber shall not be entitled to convert on a Conversion Date that amount of the Note nor may the Company make any payment including principal, interest, or liquidated or other damages by delivery of Conversion Shares in connection with that number of Conversion Shares which would be in excess of the sum of (i) the number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by Subscriber and its Affiliates on a Conversion Date or payment date, and (ii) the number of Conversion Shares issuable upon the conversion of the Note with respect to which the determination of this provision is being made on a calculation date, which would result in beneficial ownership by Subscriber and its Affiliates of more than 4.99% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock of the Company on such Conversion Date.  For the purposes of the immediately preceding sentence, beneficial ownership shall be determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and Rule 13d-3 thereunder.  Subject to the foregoing, the Subscriber shall not be limited to aggregate conversions of only 4.99% and aggregate conversions by the Subscriber may exceed 4.99%.  The Subscriber may increase the permitted beneficial ownership amount up to 9.99% upon and effective after 61 days prior written notice to the Company.  Subscriber may allocate which of the equity of the Company deemed beneficially owned by Subscriber shall be included in the 4.99% amount described above and which shall be allocated to the excess above 4.99%.
 
7.4.           Injunction Posting of Bond.  In the event Subscriber shall elect to convert a Note or part thereof, the Company may not refuse conversion based on any claim that Subscriber or any one associated or affiliated with Subscriber has been engaged in any violation of law, or for any other reason, unless, an injunction from a court made on notice to Subscriber, restraining and or enjoining conversion of all or part of such Note shall have been sought and obtained by the Company and the Company has posted a surety bond for the benefit of Subscriber in the amount of 120% of the outstanding principal and accrued but unpaid interest of the Note, or aggregate purchase price of the Shares which are sought to be subject to the injunction, which bond shall remain in effect until the completion of arbitration/litigation of the dispute and the proceeds of which shall be payable to Subscriber to the extent the judgment or decision is in Subscriber’s favor.

7.5.           Buy-In.   In addition to any other rights available to Subscriber, if the Company fails to deliver to Subscriber Conversion Shares by the Delivery Date and if after the Delivery Date Subscriber or a broker on Subscriber’s behalf purchases (in an open market transaction or otherwise) shares of Common Stock to deliver in satisfaction of a sale by Subscriber of the Common Stock which Subscriber was entitled to receive upon such conversion (a "Buy-In"), then the Company shall pay to Subscriber (in addition to any remedies available to or elected by the Subscriber) the amount by which (A) Subscriber's total purchase price (including brokerage commissions, if any) for the shares of Common Stock so purchased exceeds (B) the aggregate principal and/or interest amount of the Note for which such conversion request was not timely honored together with interest thereon at a rate of 15% per annum, accruing until such amount and any accrued interest thereon is paid in full (which amount shall be paid as liquidated damages and not as a penalty).  For example, if a Subscriber purchases shares of Common Stock having a total purchase price of $11,000 to cover a Buy-In with respect to an attempted conversion of $10,000 of Note principal and/or interest, the Company shall be required to pay Subscriber $1,000 plus interest. Subscriber shall provide the Company written notice and evidence indicating the amounts payable to Subscriber in respect of the Buy-In.

7.6           Adjustments.   The Conversion Price, Warrant exercise price and amount of Shares issuable upon conversion of the Notes and Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants shall be equitably adjusted and as otherwise described in this Agreement, the Notes and Warrants.
 
7.7.          Redemption.    The Note shall not be redeemable or callable by the Company, except as described in the Note.

8.           Legal Fees.  The Company shall pay to Grushko & Mittman, P.C., a fee of $10,000 (“Subscriber’s Legal Fees”) as reimbursement for services rendered to the Subscribers in connection with this Agreement and the purchase and sale of the Notes and Warrants (the “Offering”).   The Subscriber’s Legal Fees and expenses (to the extent known as of the Closing) will be payable out of funds held pursuant to the Escrow Agreement.  Grushko & Mittman, P.C. will be reimbursed at Closing for all lien searches, filing fees, and printing and shipping costs for the closing statements to be delivered to Subscribers.

(a)           Stop Orders.  The Company will advise the Subscriber, within twenty-four hours after it receives notice of issuance by the Commission, any state securities commission or any other regulatory authority of any stop order or of any order preventing or suspending any offering of any securities of the Company, or of the suspension of the qualification of the Common Stock of the Company for offering or sale in any jurisdiction, or the initiation of any proceeding for any such purpose.  The Company will not issue any stop transfer order or other order impeding the sale, resale or delivery of any of the Securities, except as may be required by any applicable federal or state securities laws and unless contemporaneous notice of such instruction is given to the Subscriber.
 
(b)           Listing/Quotation.  The Company shall promptly secure the quotation or listing of the Conversion Shares and Warrant Shares upon each national securities exchange, or automated quotation system upon which they are or become eligible for quotation or listing (subject to official notice of issuance) and shall maintain same so long as any Notes and Warrants are outstanding.  The Company will maintain the quotation or listing of its Common Stock on the American Stock Exchange, Nasdaq Capital Market, Nasdaq Global Market, Nasdaq Global Select Market, Bulletin Board, or New York Stock Exchange (whichever of the foregoing is at the time the principal trading exchange or market for the Common Stock (the “Principal Market”), and will comply in all respects with the Company's reporting, filing and other obligations under the bylaws or rules of the Principal Market, as applicable. The Company will provide Subscribers with copies of all notices it receives notifying the Company of the threatened and actual delisting of the Common Stock from any Principal Market.  As of the date of this Agreement and the Closing Date, the Bulletin Board is and will be the Principal Market.
 
(c)           Market Regulations.  If required, the Company shall notify the Commission, the Principal Market and applicable state authorities, in accordance with their requirements, of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, and shall take all other necessary action and proceedings as may be required and permitted by applicable law, rule and regulation, for the legal and valid issuance of the Securities to the Subscriber and promptly provide copies thereof to the Subscriber.
 

 
(d)           Filing Requirements.  From the date of this Agreement and until the last to occur of (i) two (2) years after the Closing Date, (ii) until all the Shares have been resold or transferred by all the Subscriber pursuant to a registration statement or pursuant to Rule 144(b)(1)(i), or (iii) the Note and Warrants are no longer outstanding (the date of such latest occurrence being the “End Date”), the Company will (A) cause its Common Stock to continue to be registered under Section 12(b) or 12(g) of the 1934 Act, (B) comply in all respects with its reporting and filing obligations under the 1934 Act, (C) voluntarily comply with all reporting requirements that are applicable to an issuer with a class of shares registered pursuant to Section 12(g) of the 1934 Act, if the Company is not subject to such reporting requirements, and (D) comply with all requirements related to any registration statement filed pursuant to this Agreement.  The Company will use its best efforts not to take any action or file any document (whether or not permitted by the 1933 Act or the 1934 Act or the rules thereunder) to terminate or suspend such registration or to terminate or suspend its reporting and filing obligations under said acts until the End Date.  Until the End Date, the Company will continue the listing or quotation of the Common Stock on a Principal Market and will comply in all respects with the Company’s reporting, filing and other obligations under the bylaws or rules of the Principal Market.  The Company agrees to timely file a Form D with respect to the Securities if required under Regulation D and to provide a copy thereof to Subscriber promptly after such filing.

11.1.           Piggy-Back Registrations.   If at any time until two years after the Closing Date there is not an effective registration statement covering all of the Shares and the Company shall determine to prepare and file with the Commission a registration statement relating to an offering for its own account or the account of others under the 1933 Act of any of its equity securities, including on Form S-4 (as promulgated under the 1933 Act) or its then equivalent form, but excluding Form S-8, then the Company shall send to each holder of any of the Securities written notice of such determination and, if within fifteen calendar days after receipt of such notice, any such holder shall so request in writing, the Company shall include in such registration statement all or any part of the Shares and Warrant Shares such holder requests to be registered, subject to customary underwriter cutbacks applicable to all holders of registration rights.  The obligations of the Company under this Section may be waived by any holder of any of the Securities entitled to registration rights under this Section 11.1. The holders whose Shares and Warrant Shares are included or required to be included in such registration statement are granted the same rights, benefits, liquidated or other damages and indemnification granted to other holders of securities included in such registration statement.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the registration rights granted hereunder to the holders of Securities shall not be applicable for such times as such Shares and Warrant Shares may be sold by the holder thereof without restriction pursuant to Section 144(b)(1) of the 1933 Act.  In no event shall the liability of any holder of Securities or permitted successor in connection with any Shares and Warrant Shares included in any such registration statement be greater in amount than the dollar amount of the net proceeds actually received by such Subscriber upon the sale of the Shares and Warrant Shares sold pursuant to such registration or such lesser amount applicable to other holders of Securities included in such registration statement. All expenses incurred by the Company in complying with Section 11, including, without limitation, all registration and filing fees, printing expenses (if required), fees and disbursements of counsel and independent public accountants for the Company, fees and expenses (including reasonable counsel fees) incurred in connection with complying with state securities or “blue sky” laws, fees of the NASD, transfer taxes, and fees of transfer agents and registrars, are called “Registration Expenses.” All underwriting discounts and selling commissions applicable to the sale of Registrable Securities are called "Selling Expenses."  The Company will pay all Registration Expenses in connection with the registration statement under Section 11.  Selling Expenses in connection with each registration statement under Section 11 shall be borne by the holder and will be apportioned among such holders in proportion to the number of Shares included therein for a holder relative to all the Securities included therein for all selling holders, or as all holders may agree.

11.2.           Delivery of Unlegended Shares.

(a)           Within three (3) business days (such third business day being the “Unlegended Shares Delivery Date”) after the business day on which the Company has received (i) a notice that Shares, Warrant Shares or any other Common Stock held by a Subscriber have been sold pursuant to the Registration Statement or Rule 144 under the 1933 Act, (ii) a representation that the prospectus delivery requirements, or the requirements of Rule 144, as applicable and if required, have been satisfied, and (iii) the original share certificates representing the shares of Common Stock that have been sold, and (iv) in the case of sales under Rule 144, customary representation letters of the Subscriber and, if required, Subscriber’s broker regarding compliance with the requirements of Rule 144, the Company at its expense, (y) shall deliver, and shall cause legal counsel selected by the Company to deliver to its transfer agent (with copies to Subscriber) an appropriate instruction and opinion of such counsel, directing the delivery of shares of Common Stock without any legends including the legend set forth in Section 4(i) above (the “Unlegended Shares”); and (z) cause the transmission of the certificates representing the Unlegended Shares together with a legended certificate representing the balance of the submitted Shares certificate, if any, to the Subscriber at the address specified in the notice of sale, via express courier, by electronic transfer or otherwise on or before the Unlegended Shares Delivery Date.
 
(b)           In lieu of delivering physical certificates representing the Unlegended Shares, upon request of a Subscriber, so long as the certificates therefor do not bear a legend and the Subscriber is not obligated to return such certificate for the placement of a legend thereon, the Company shall cause its transfer agent to electronically transmit the Unlegended Shares by crediting the account of Subscriber’s prime broker with the Depository Trust Company through its Deposit Withdrawal Agent Commission system, if such transfer agent participates in such DWAC system.  Such delivery must be made on or before the Unlegended Shares Delivery Date.

(c)           The Company understands that a delay in the delivery of the Unlegended Shares pursuant to Section 11 hereof later than two business days after the Unlegended Shares Delivery Date could result in economic loss to a Subscriber.  As compensation to a Subscriber for such loss, the Company agrees to pay late payment fees (as liquidated damages and not as a penalty) to the Subscriber for late delivery of Unlegended Shares in the amount of $100 per business day after the Delivery Date for each $10,000 of purchase price of the Unlegended Shares subject to the delivery default.  If during any 360 day period, the Company fails to deliver Unlegended Shares as required by this Section 11.2 for an aggregate of thirty (30) days, then each Subscriber or assignee holding Securities subject to such default may, at its option, require the Company to redeem all or any portion of the Shares, Warrant Shares or other Common Stock subject to such default at a price per share, at the Subscriber’s election, equal to the greater of (i) 120%, or (ii) a fraction in which the numerator is the highest closing price of such Common Stock during the aforedescribed thirty day period and the denominator of which is the Warrant exercise price during such thirty day period, multiplied by the price paid by Subscriber for such Common Stock (“Unlegended Redemption Amount”).  The Company shall pay any payments incurred under this Section in immediately available funds upon demand.

(d)            In addition to any other rights available to a Subscriber, if the Company fails to deliver to a Subscriber Unlegended Shares as required pursuant to this Agreement, within seven (7) business days after the Unlegended Shares Delivery Date and the Subscriber or a broker on the Subscriber’s behalf, purchases (in an open market transaction or otherwise) shares of common stock to deliver in satisfaction of a sale by such Subscriber of the shares of Common Stock which the Subscriber was entitled to receive from the Company (a "Buy-In"), then the Company shall pay in cash to the Subscriber (in addition to any remedies available to or elected by the Subscriber) the amount by which (A) the Subscriber's total purchase price (including brokerage commissions, if any) for the shares of common stock so purchased exceeds (B) the aggregate purchase price of the shares of Common Stock delivered to the Company for reissuance as Unlegended Shares together with interest thereon at a rate of 15% per annum accruing until such amount and any accrued interest thereon is paid in full (which amount shall be paid as liquidated damages and not as a penalty).  For example, if a Subscriber purchases shares of Common Stock having a total purchase price of $11,000 to cover a Buy-In with respect to $10,000 of purchase price of shares of Common Stock delivered to the Company for reissuance as Unlegended Shares, the Company shall be required to pay the Subscriber $1,000, plus interest. The Subscriber shall provide the Company written notice indicating the amounts payable to the Subscriber in respect of the Buy-In.

(e)           In the event a Subscriber shall request delivery of Unlegended Shares as described in Section 11.2 and the Company is required to deliver such Unlegended Shares pursuant to Section 11.2, the Company may not refuse to deliver Unlegended Shares based on any claim that such Subscriber or any one associated or affiliated with such Subscriber has been engaged in any violation of law, or for any other reason, unless, an injunction or temporary restraining order from a court, on notice, restraining and or enjoining delivery of such Unlegended Shares shall have been sought and obtained by the Company or at the Company’s request or with the Company’s assistance, and the Company has posted a surety bond for the benefit of such Subscriber in the amount of 120% of the amount of the aggregate purchase price of the Common Stock which are subject to the injunction or temporary restraining order, which bond shall remain in effect until the completion of arbitration/litigation of the dispute and the proceeds of which shall be payable to such Subscriber to the extent Subscriber obtains judgment in Subscriber’s favor.

11.3.           In the event commencing six months after the Closing Date and ending twenty-four months thereafter, the Subscriber is not permitted to resell any of the Shares or Warrant Shares, without any restrictive legend or if such sales are permitted but subject to volume limitations or further restrictions on resale as a result of the unavailability to non-affiliate Subscribers of Rule 144(b)(1)(i) under the 1933 Act or any successor rule (a “144 Default”), for any reason except for Subscriber’s status as an Affiliate or “control person” of the Company or change in current applicable securities laws, then the Company shall pay such Subscriber as liquidated damages and not as a penalty an amount equal to two percent (2%) for each thirty days (or such lesser pro-rata amount for any period less than thirty days) thereafter of the purchase price of the Shares or Warrant Shares by the Subscriber during the pendency of the 144 Default.  Liquidated Damages shall not be payable pursuant to this Section 11.3 in connection with Shares for such times as such Shares may be sold by the holder thereof without volume or other restrictions  pursuant to Section 144(b)(1)(i) of the 1933 Act.

12.           (a)           Right of Participation.  For so long as any amount remains outstanding on the Note, the Subscriber shall be given not less than ten business days prior written notice of any proposed sale by the Company of its Common Stock or other securities or equity linked debt obligations, except in connection with (i) full or partial consideration in connection with a strategic merger, acquisition, consolidation or purchase of substantially all of the securities or assets of corporation or other entity which holders of such securities or debt are not at any time granted registration rights, (ii) the Company’s issuance of securities in connection with strategic license agreements and other partnering arrangements so long as such issuances are not for the purpose of raising capital and which holders of such securities or debt are not at any time granted registration rights, (iii) the Company’s issuance of Common Stock or the issuances or grants of options to purchase Common Stock to employees, directors, and consultants, pursuant to plans described on Schedule 5(d) as such plans are constituted on the Closing Date and provided such issuances are not at a per share price lower than the Conversion Price, (iv) securities upon the exercise or exchange of or conversion of any securities exercisable or exchangeable for or convertible into shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding on the date of this Agreement and described on Schedule 5(d), and (v) as a result of the exercise of Warrants or conversion of Notes which are granted or issued pursuant to this Agreement (collectively the foregoing (i) through (v) are “Excepted Issuances”).  The Subscriber who exercise its rights pursuant to this Section 12(a) shall have the right during the ten business days following receipt of the notice to purchase in cash and/or by using the outstanding balance due in connection with the Note, including principal, interest, liquidated damages and any other amount then owing to such Subscriber by the Company, in the aggregate, all of such offered Common Stock, debt or other securities in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in the notice of sale.  In the event such terms and conditions are modified during the notice period, Subscriber shall be given prompt notice of such modification and shall have the right during the ten business days following the notice of modification to exercise the right to participate in such offering.

 
(b)           Favored Nations Provision.   Other than in connection with the Excepted Issuances, if at any time the Notes or Warrants are outstanding, the Company shall agree to or issue (the “Lower Price Issuance”) any Common Stock or securities convertible into or exercisable for shares of Common Stock (or modify any of the foregoing which may be outstanding) to any person or entity at a price per share or conversion or exercise price per share which shall be less than the Conversion Price in effect at such time, or if less than the Warrant exercise price in effect at such time, without the consent of the Subscriber, then the Company shall issue, for each such occasion, additional shares of Common Stock to the Subscriber respecting those Conversion Shares and Warrants Shares that are then still owned by the Subscriber at the time of the Lower Price Issuance so that the average per share purchase price of the Shares or Warrant Shares purchased and owned by the Subscriber on the date of the Lower Price Issuance is equal to such other lower price per share and the Conversion Price and Warrant exercise price shall automatically be reduced to such other lower price.  The average Purchase Price of the Conversion Shares and average exercise price in relation to the Warrant Shares shall be calculated separately for the Shares and Warrant Shares.  The delivery to Subscriber of the additional shares of Common Stock shall be not later than the closing date of the transaction giving rise to the requirement to issue additional shares of Common Stock.  Subscriber is granted the registration rights described in Section 11 hereof in connection with such additional shares of Common Stock.  For purposes of the issuance and adjustment described in this paragraph, the issuance of any security of the Company carrying the right to convert such security into shares of Common Stock or of any warrant, right or option to purchase Common Stock shall result in the issuance of the additional shares of Common Stock upon the sooner of the agreement to or actual issuance of such convertible security, warrant, right or option and again at any time upon any subsequent issuances of shares of Common Stock upon exercise of such conversion or purchase rights if such issuance is at a price lower than the Conversion Price or Warrant exercise price in effect upon such issuance.  Common Stock issued or issuable by the Company for no consideration or for consideration that cannot be determined at the time of issue will be deemed issuable or to have been issued for $0.0001 per share of Common Stock.  The rights of Subscriber set forth in this Section 12 are in addition to any other rights the Subscriber has pursuant to this Agreement, the Note, any Transaction Document, and any other agreement referred to or entered into in connection herewith or to which Subscriber and Company are parties.
 
(c)           Maximum Exercise of Rights.   In the event the exercise of the rights described in Sections 12(a) and 12(b) would or could result in the issuance of an amount of Common Stock of the Company that would exceed the maximum amount that may be issued to Subscriber calculated in the manner described in Section 7.3 of this Agreement, then the issuance of such additional shares of Common Stock of the Company to Subscriber will be deferred in whole or in part until such time as Subscriber is able to beneficially own such Common Stock without exceeding the applicable maximum amount set forth calculated in the manner described in Section 7.3 of this Agreement and notifies the Company accordingly.
