(a)           Piggy-Back Rights.

(i)           In the event the Securities are not sold and the Securities are not able to be sold pursuant to Rule 144, without limitation, the Subscriber shall have piggy-back registration rights with respect to all of the Purchased Shares and Warrant Shares then held by the Subscriber, subject to the conditions set forth below. If the Company participates (whether voluntarily or by reason of an obligation to a third party) in the registration of any shares of the Company’s stock (other than a registration on Form S-4, S-8 or successor form), the Company shall give written notice thereof to the Subscriber and the Subscriber shall have the right, exercisable within ten (10) business days after receipt of such notice, to demand inclusion of all or a portion of the Shares then held by the Subscriber in such registration statement, subject, in the event of an underwritten offering, to customary cutbacks and lock-ups requested by the managing underwriter of all selling stockholders thereunder, on a pro-rata basis with such other selling stockholders.

(ii)           In the event of an underwritten offering, the right of the Subscriber to registration pursuant to the piggyback registration rights granted to the Subscriber pursuant to this Section shall be conditioned upon the Subscriber's participation in such underwriting and the inclusion of such Subscriber’s Shares in the underwriting. If the Subscriber proposes to distribute the Subscriber’s Shares through such underwriting, the Subscriber shall (together with the Company and the other holders of securities of the Company with registration rights to participate therein distributing their securities through such underwriting) enter into an underwriting agreement in customary form with the representative of the underwriter or underwriters selected by the Company.  If the Subscriber exercises such election, the Shares so designated (subject to the preceding provisions) shall be included in the registration statement at no cost or expense to the Subscriber (other than any commissions, if any, relating to the sale of the Subscriber’s shares).

(iii)           The Subscriber’s rights under this Section 11(a) shall expire at such time as such Subscriber can sell all of such Subscriber’s remaining Securities under Rule 144 without volume or other restrictions or limit.

(iv)           Notwithstanding the foregoing, if at any time or from time to time after the date of effectiveness of the registration statement, the Company notifies the Subscriber in writing of the existence of a Potential Material Event (as defined below), the Subscriber shall not offer or sell any Securities covered by such registration statement (“Registrable Securities”), or engage in any other transaction involving or relating to the Registrable Securities, from the time of the giving of notice with respect to a Potential Material Event until the Subscriber receives written notice from the Company that such Potential Material Event either has been disclosed to the public or no longer constitutes a Potential Material Event.  The term “Potential Material Event” means any of the following: (i) the possession by the Company of material information not ripe for disclosure in a registration statement, which shall be evidenced by determinations in good faith by the Board of Directors of the Company that disclosure of such information in the registration statement would be detrimental to the business and affairs of the Company; or (ii) any material engagement or activity by the Company which would, in the good faith determination of the Board of Directors of the Company, be adversely affected by disclosure in a registration statement at such time, which determination shall be accompanied by a good faith determination by the Board of Directors of the Company that the registration statement would be materially misleading absent the inclusion of such information.

(i)           In the event of a registration of any Registrable Securities under the 1933 Act pursuant to Section 11, the Company will, to the extent permitted by law, indemnify and hold harmless the Seller, each officer of the Seller, each director of the Seller, each underwriter of such Registrable Securities thereunder and each other person, if any, who controls such Seller or underwriter within the meaning of the 1933 Act, against any losses, claims, damages or liabilities, joint or several, to which the Seller, or such underwriter or controlling person may become subject under the 1933 Act or otherwise, insofar as such losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or actions in respect thereof) arise out of or are based upon any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of any material fact contained in any registration statement under which such Registrable Securities was registered under the 1933 Act pursuant to Section 11, any preliminary prospectus or final prospectus contained therein, or any amendment or supplement thereof, or arise out of or are based upon the omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading in light of the circumstances when made, and will subject to the provisions of Section 11(f)(iii) reimburse the Seller, each such underwriter and each such controlling person for any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by them in connection with investigating or defending any such loss, claim, damage, liability or action; provided, however, that the Company shall not be liable to the Seller to the extent that any such damages arise out of or are based upon an untrue statement or omission made in any preliminary prospectus if (i) the Seller failed to send or deliver a copy of the final prospectus delivered by the Company to the Seller with or prior to the delivery of written confirmation of the sale by the Seller to the person asserting the claim from which such damages arise, (ii) the final prospectus would have corrected such untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or such omission or alleged omission, or (iii) to the extent that any such loss, claim, damage or liability arises out of or is based upon an untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission so made in conformity with information furnished by any such Seller, or any such controlling person in writing specifically for use in such registration statement or prospectus.
 
 
22


 
(ii)           In the event of a registration of any of the Registrable Securities under the 1933 Act pursuant to Section 11, each Seller severally but not jointly will, to the extent permitted by law, indemnify and hold harmless the Company, and each person, if any, who controls the Company within the meaning of the 1933 Act, each officer of the Company who signs the registration statement, each director of the Company, each underwriter and each person who controls any underwriter within the meaning of the 1933 Act, against all losses, claims, damages or liabilities, joint or several, to which the Company or such officer, director, underwriter or controlling person may become subject under the 1933 Act or otherwise, insofar as such losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or actions in respect thereof) arise out of or are based upon any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of any material fact contained in the registration statement under which such Registrable Securities were registered under the 1933 Act pursuant to Section 11, any preliminary prospectus or final prospectus contained therein, or any amendment or supplement thereof, or arise out of or are based upon the omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, and will reimburse the Company and each such officer, director, underwriter and controlling person for any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by them in connection with investigating or defending any such loss, claim, damage, liability or action, provided, however, that the Seller will be liable hereunder in any such case if and only to the extent that any such loss, claim, damage or liability arises out of or is based upon an untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission made in reliance upon and in conformity with information pertaining to such Seller, as such, furnished in writing to the Company by such Seller specifically for use in such registration statement or prospectus, and provided, further, however, that the liability of the Seller hereunder shall be limited to the net proceeds actually received by the Seller from the sale of Registrable Securities covered by such registration statement.

(iii)           Promptly after receipt by an indemnified party hereunder of notice of the commencement of any action, such indemnified party shall, if a claim in respect thereof is to be made against the indemnifying party hereunder, notify the indemnifying party in writing thereof, but the omission so to notify the indemnifying party shall not relieve it from any liability which it may have to such indemnified party other than under this Section 11(f)(iii) and shall only relieve it from any liability which it may have to such indemnified party under this Section 11(f)(iii), except and only if and to the extent the indemnifying party is prejudiced by such omission. In case any such action shall be brought against any indemnified party and it shall notify the indemnifying party of the commencement thereof, the indemnifying party shall be entitled to participate in and, to the extent it shall wish, to assume and undertake the defense thereof with counsel satisfactory to such indemnified party, and, after notice from the indemnifying party to such indemnified party of its election so to assume and undertake the defense thereof, the indemnifying party shall not be liable to such indemnified party under this Section 11(f)(iii) for any legal expenses subsequently incurred by such indemnified party in connection with the defense thereof other than reasonable costs of investigation and of liaison with counsel so selected, provided, however, that, if the defendants in any such action include both the indemnified party and the indemnifying party and the indemnified party shall have reasonably concluded that there may be reasonable defenses available to it which are different from or additional to those available to the indemnifying party or if the interests of the indemnified party reasonably may be deemed to conflict with the interests of the indemnifying party, the indemnified parties, as a group, shall have the right to select one separate counsel and to assume such legal defenses and otherwise to participate in the defense of such action, with the reasonable expenses and fees of such separate counsel and other expenses related to such participation to be reimbursed by the indemnifying party as incurred.

(iv)           In order to provide for just and equitable contribution in the event of joint liability under the 1933 Act in any case in which either (i) a Seller, or any controlling person of a Seller, makes a claim for indemnification pursuant to this Section 11(f) but it is judicially determined (by the entry of a final judgment or decree by a court of competent jurisdiction and the expiration of time to appeal or the denial of the last right of appeal) that such indemnification may not be enforced in such case notwithstanding the fact that this Section 11(f) provides for indemnification in such case, or (ii) contribution under the 1933 Act may be required on the part of the Seller or controlling person of the Seller in circumstances for which indemnification is not provided under this Section 11(f); then, and in each such case, the Company and the Seller will contribute to the aggregate losses, claims, damages or liabilities to which they may be subject (after contribution from others) in such proportion so that the Seller is responsible only for the portion represented by the percentage that the public offering price of its securities offered by the registration statement bears to the public offering price of all securities offered by such registration statement, provided, however, that, in any such case, (y) the Seller will not be required to contribute any amount in excess of the public offering price of all such securities sold by it pursuant to such registration statement; and (z) no person or entity guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the 1933 Act) will be entitled to contribution from any person or entity who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation.

(d)           Delivery of Unlegended Shares.

(i)           Within five  (5) business days (such fifth business day being the “Unlegended Shares Delivery Date”) after the business day on which the Company has received (i) a notice that Purchased Shares or Warrant Shares 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/or 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(h) above, reissuable pursuant to any effective and current Registration Statement described in Section 11 of this Agreement or pursuant to Rule 144 under the 1933 Act (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 certificates, 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. Transfer fees shall be the responsibility of the Seller.
 
 
24


 
(ii)           In lieu of delivering physical certificates representing the Unlegended Shares, if the Company's Transfer Agent is then participating in the Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) Fast Automated Securities Transfer program, upon request of a Subscriber, so long as the certificates therefore 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 DTC through its Deposit Withdrawal Agent Commission system. Such delivery must be made on or before the Unlegended Shares Delivery Date.

(iii)           The Company understands that a delay in the delivery of the Unlegended Shares pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 11 hereof later than 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(g) for an aggregate of thirty (30) days, then the Subscriber or assignee holding Securities subject to such default may, at its option, require the Company to redeem all or any portion of the Purchased Shares and Warrant Shares subject to such default at a price per share equal to the Redemption Percentage (as defined below) multiplied by the Purchase Price of such Common Stock and exercise price of such Warrant Shares (“Unlegended Redemption Amount”). The term “Redemption Percentage” means the greater of (i) 120%, or (ii) a fraction (expressed as a percentage) in which the numerator is the highest closing price of the Common Stock during the aforedescribed thirty (30) day period and the denominator of which is the lowest conversion price during such thirty (30) day period.  The Company shall pay any payments incurred under this Section in immediately available funds upon demand.
 
 
25


 
(iv)           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 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.

(v)           In the event a Subscriber shall request delivery of Unlegended Shares as described in Section 11(g) or the Subscriber has exercised the Warrant and the Company is required to deliver such Warrant Shares, the Company may not refuse to deliver Unlegended Shares or Warrant 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 or exercise of all or part of said Warrant shall have been sought and obtained 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 and Warrant Shares 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.

(e)           Reports under 1933 Act and 1934 Act.  With a view to making available to the Subscriber the benefits of Rule 144 or any other similar rule or regulation of the Commission that may at any time permit the Subscriber to sell securities of the Company to the public without Registration (“Rule 144”), the Company agrees to:

(i)           make and keep public information available, as those terms are understood and defined in Rule 144;

(ii)           file with the Commission in a timely manner all reports and other documents required of the Company under the 1933 Act and the 1934 Act; and

(iii)           furnish to the Subscriber so long as the Subscriber owns Registrable Securities, promptly upon request, (x) a written statement by the Company that it has complied with the reporting requirements of Rule 144, the 1933 Act and the 1934 Act, (y) if not available on the Commission’s EDGAR system, a copy of the most recent annual or quarterly report of the Company and such other reports and documents so filed by the Company and (z) such other information as may be reasonably requested to permit the Subscriber to sell such securities pursuant to Rule 144 without registration; and
 
 
26


 
(iv)           at the request of the Subscriber holding Purchased Shares or Warrant Shares  (a “Holder”), give its Transfer Agent instructions (supported by an opinion of Company Counsel or other counsel to the Company, if required or requested by the Transfer Agent) to the effect that, upon the Transfer Agent’s receipt from such Holder of

(1) a certificate (a “Rule 144 Certificate”) certifying (A) that the Holder’s holding period (as determined in accordance with the provisions of Rule 144) for the shares of Purchased Shares or Warrant Shares which the Holder proposes to sell (the “Securities Being Sold”) is not less than six (6) months and (B) as to such other matters as may be appropriate in accordance with Rule 144 under the 1933 Act, and

(2) an opinion of counsel acceptable to the Company (for which purposes it is agreed that the opinion of Krieger & Prager LLP shall be deemed acceptable if not given by Company counsel) that, based on the Rule 144 Certificate, Securities Being Sold may be sold pursuant to the provisions of Rule 144, even in the absence of an effective Registration Statement,

the Transfer Agent is to effect the transfer of the Securities Being Sold and issue to the Subscriber(s) or transferee(s) thereof one or more stock certificates representing the transferred Securities Being Sold without any restrictive legend and without recording any restrictions on the transferability of such shares on the Transfer Agent’s  books and records (except to the extent any such legend or restriction results from facts other than the identity of the Holder, as the seller or transferor thereof, or the status, including any relevant legends or restrictions, of the shares of the Securities Being Sold while held by the Holder). If the Transfer Agent reasonably requires any additional documentation at the time of the transfer, the Company shall deliver or cause to be delivered all such reasonable additional documentation as may be necessary to effectuate the issuance of an unlegended certificate.

(i)           Assignment of the Registration Rights.  The rights to have the Company register Registrable Securities pursuant to this Agreement and the rights of the Subscriber under this Section 11 shall be automatically assigned by the Subscriber to any transferee of all or any portion of any unexercised Warrants (excluding any transfer of such Registrable Securities by a sale pursuant to an effective Registration Statement or pursuant to Rule 144), but , only if the Company is, within a reasonable time after such transfer or assignment, furnished with written notice of (a) the name and address of such transferee or assignee, (b) the securities with respect to which such registration rights are being transferred or assigned, and (c) written evidence of the transferee’s assumption of the Subscriber’s obligations under this Agreement.

12.           Right of First Refusal; Most Favored Nation Provision; Other Provisions.

(a)           Right of First Refusal. Subject to the rights of Cresta Capital Strategies, LLC under an Exclusive Investment Banking Agreement effective as of August 4, 2009, during the period from the Closing Date through and including the first anniversary of the Closing Date, the Subscriber shall be given not less than seven (7) business days’ prior written notice of any proposed sale by the Company to any party of its common stock or other securities or debt obligations of the Company, 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 pursuant to stock option plans and employee stock purchase plans, if any, described on Schedule 5(d) hereto at prices equal to or higher than the closing price of the Common Stock on the issue date of any of the foregoing, (iv) as a result of the Merger, or (v) as a result of the exercise of Warrants or conversion of which are granted or issued pursuant to this Agreement or that have been issued prior to the Closing Date all on the original terms thereof, the issuance of which has been disclosed in a Report filed not less than five (5) days prior to the Closing Date (collectively the foregoing are “Excepted Issuances”). The Subscribers who exercise their rights pursuant to this Section 12(a) shall have the right during the seven (7) business days following receipt of the notice to purchase such offered common stock, debt or other securities in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in the notice of sale in the same proportion to each other as their purchase of the Securities.  The Subscriber may exercise such right independent of the exercise thereof by the other Subscribers.  In the event such terms and conditions are modified during the notice period, the Subscribers shall be given prompt notice of such modification and shall have the right during the seven (7) business days following the notice of modification to exercise such right.

(b)           Most Favored Nation Provision.  Other than the Excepted Issuances, if, at any time from the earlier of (i) while the Subscriber holds any Purchased Shares, Warrants or Warrant Shares, or (ii) the Class I Warrant Expiration Date, the Company shall offer, issue or agree to issue any common stock or securities (including preferred stock, debentures, warrants, options or other rights, howsoever denominated) convertible into or exercisable for shares of common stock (or modify any of the foregoing which may be outstanding) (collectively, “New Securities”) to any person or entity  (“Third Party Purchaser”) at a purchase or conversion price per share and/or an exercise price per share, respectively, which shall be less than the Share Purchase Price (adjusted for capital adjustments such as stock splits or dividends paid in shares of common stock) or the then effective Exercise Price of the Warrants, without the consent of the
 
 
28

 
 
Subscriber holding such Purchased Shares, Warrants or Warrant Shares, then the such Subscriber shall have the right to apply the lowest such purchase price, conversion price or exercise price of the offering or sale of such New Securities to the purchase price of the Purchased Shares then held by the Subscriber (and, if necessary, the Company will issue additional shares to Subscriber to take into account the amount paid by the Subscriber as of the Closing Date and the adjustment made to the per share purchase price contemplated by this paragraph), to the warrant exercise price of Warrant Shares then held by the Subscriber (and, if necessary, the Company will issue additional shares to Subscriber to take into account the amount paid whether in cash or by cashless exercise paid by the Subscriber for the Warrant Shares then held and the adjustment made to the per share exercise price) and to the exercise price for all unexercised Warrants, each as of the date of the offering or sale of such New Securities, and the appropriate adjustments to each relevant Transaction Document will be deemed made accordingly.  If the Company enters into a transaction that has a variable rate, despite the prohibition thereon in the Subscription Agreement, the Company shall be deemed to have issued Common Stock or Common Stock Equivalents at the lowest possible conversion or exercise price at which such securities may be converted or exercised.  The rights of the Subscriber set forth in this Section 12(b) are in addition to any other rights the Subscriber has pursuant to this Agreement, any Transaction Document, and any other agreement referred to or entered into in connection herewith.

(c)           Option Plan Restrictions.  The only officer, director, employee and consultant stock option or stock incentive plan currently in effect or contemplated by the Company has been submitted to the Subscriber or filed with the Reports. No other plan will be adopted nor may any options or equity not included in such plan be issued until the end of the Exclusion Period.

(d)           Maximum Exercise of Rights. In the event the exercise of the rights described in Sections 12(a) and 12(b) would result in the issuance of an amount of common stock of the Company that would exceed the maximum amount that may be issued to a Subscriber calculated in the manner described in Section 2.3 of the Warrants, then the issuance of such additional shares of Common Stock of the Company to such Subscriber will be deferred in whole or in part until such time as such Subscriber is able to beneficially own such common stock without exceeding the maximum amount set forth contemplated by Section 2.2 of the Warrants. The determination of when such common stock may be issued shall be made by the Subscriber as to only such Subscriber.
