THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE
HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE "ACT"), OR THE SECURITIES LAWS OF ANY STATE,
AND MAY NOT BE OFFERED, SOLD, TRANSFERRED, PLEDGED, HYPOTHECATED OR OTHERWISE DISPOSED OF FOR A PERIOD OF ONE YEAR FROM THE ISSUANCE
THEREOF EXCEPT (i) PURSUANT TO AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT UNDER THE ACT AND ANY APPLICABLE STATE LAWS OR (ii) UPON
THE EXPRESS WRITTEN AGREEMENT OF THE COMPANY AND COMPLIANCE, TO THE EXTENT APPLICABLE, WITH RULE 144 UNDER THE ACT (OR ANY SIMILAR
RULE UNDER THE ACT RELATING TO THE DISPOSITION OF SECURITIES.)
Incorporation. SELLER is a corporation duly incorporated, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the State
of Delaware and has the requisite corporate power to own its properties and to carry on its business as currently being conducted.
SELLER’s Amended and Restated Bylaws and Amended Certificate of Incorporation are available at the SEC’s website, xxx.xxx.xxx.
SELLER, as of the date hereof, has no subsidiaries. SELLER is duly qualified as a foreign corporation to do business and is in
good standing in each jurisdiction where the nature of the business conducted or property owned by it makes such qualification
necessary, unless the failure to be so qualified or in good standing, as the case may be, would not have or would not reasonably
be expected to result in (i) a material adverse effect on the legality, validity or enforceability of this Agreement or any other
document in connection with the Placement, (ii) a material adverse effect on the results of operations, assets, business or financial
condition of SELLER, or (iii) a material adverse effect on SELLER’s ability to perform in any material respect on a timely
basis its obligations under this Agreement (any of (i), (ii) or (iii), constituting a “Material Adverse Effect”).
Ownership of Shares. The authorized capital stock of SELLER consists of 90,000,000 shares of Common Stock and 10,000,000 shares
of Preferred Stock. As of December 31, 2016, there are approximately 30,762,034 shares of Common Stock issued and/or issuable on
a fully diluted basis, as follows: (i) 24,996,438 shares of Common Stock are issued and outstanding, all of which are duly authorized,
validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable and were not issued in violation of any preemptive rights, (ii) approximately 2,923,666
shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of outstanding warrants; and (iii) 2,841,930 shares of Common Stock issuable upon
conversion of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (collectively the “Securities”). Except for the transactions
contemplated hereby and as described herein, there are no outstanding options, warrants, convertible securities or other rights,
agreements, arrangements or commitments relating to the Common Stock or obligating SELLER to issue or sell any shares of Common
Stock, or any other interest in, SELLER. All outstanding shares of capital stock of SELLER were issued, sold and delivered in material
compliance with all applicable federal and state securities laws and the similar laws of other foreign jurisdictions as may be
applicable. No person has any right of first refusal, preemptive right, right of participation, or any similar right to participate
in the transactions contemplated by the Placement or otherwise. The issue and sale of the Preferred Shares will not obligate SELLER
to issue shares of Common Stock or other securities to any person (other than PURCHASERS) and will not result in a right of any
holder of SELLER securities to adjust the exercise, conversion, exchange or reset price under such securities.
Enforceability. This Agreement and the Securities have been duly authorized, executed and delivered by SELLER and are valid
and binding agreements enforceable in accordance with their terms, subject to bankruptcy, insolvency, fraudulent transfer, reorganization,

principles of equity, and SELLER has full corporate power and authority necessary to enter into this Agreement and to perform its
obligations hereunder. All corporate action on the part of SELLER by its officers, directors and stockholders necessary for the
authorization, execution and delivery of, and the performance by SELLER of its obligations under this Agreement has been taken.

or over any of its affiliates, FINRA, Nasdaq, the OTC Bulletin Board nor SELLER’s stockholders is required for execution
of this Agreement and all other agreements entered into by SELLER relating thereto, including, without limitation, the issuance
and sale of the Securities, and the performance of SELLER’s obligations hereunder and under all such other Agreements identical
to this one except for the identity of the PURCHASERS and Share amounts.
Violation or Conflict. Assuming the representations and warranties of PURCHASER herein are true and correct, neither the execution
and delivery of this Agreement nor the issuance and sale of the Securities nor the performance of SELLER’s obligations under
this Agreement and all other agreements entered into by SELLER relating thereto by SELLER will:
conflict with, result in a material breach of, or constitute a default (or an event which with the giving of notice or the lapse
of time or both would be reasonably likely to constitute a default) or give to others any rights of termination, amendment, acceleration
or cancellation under (A) the Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws of SELLER, (B) any decree, judgment, order, law, treaty, rule,
regulation or determination applicable to SELLER of any court, governmental agency or body, or arbitrator having jurisdiction over

of SELLER or any of its affiliates is subject, or (D) the terms of any “lock-up” or similar provision of any underwriting

before any court, governmental or administrative agency or regulatory body (federal, state, county, local or foreign), or arbitrator
having jurisdiction over SELLER, or any of its affiliates that would challenge the legality, validity or enforceability of this
Agreement and/or the Placement, or otherwise affect the execution by SELLER or the performance by SELLER of its obligations under
this Agreement, and all other agreements entered into by SELLER relating hereto. Except as disclosed herein or in the SELLER’s
required public filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) (“SELLER’S SEC FILINGS”),
there is no pending or, to the knowledge of SELLER, threatened action, suit, proceeding or investigation before any court, governmental

would have a Material Adverse Effect on SELLER.

authority which violation would have a Material Adverse Effect on SELLER. SELLER possesses all material certificates, authorizations
and permits issued by the appropriate federal, state or foreign regulatory authorities necessary to conduct their respective businesses
other than where the failure to possess such certificates, authorizations or permits, individually or in the aggregate, has not
had and would not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. SELLER has not received any notice or otherwise become
aware of any proceedings, inquiries or investigations relating to the revocation or modification of any such certificate, authorization
General Solicitation. Neither SELLER, nor any of its affiliates, nor to SELLER’s knowledge, any person acting on its

that would cause the offer of the Preferred Shares pursuant to this Agreement to be integrated with prior offerings or private
placements by SELLER for purposes of the 1933 Act or any applicable stockholder approval provisions. Neither SELLER nor any of
its affiliates will take any action or steps that would cause the offer of the Preferred Shares to be integrated with other offerings
if such integration would eliminate the exemption relied on hereunder. Neither SELLER nor any of its affiliates, nor to SELLER’s
knowledge, any person acting on its or their behalf, has engaged in any form of general solicitation or general advertising (within
the meaning of Regulation D) in connection with the offer or sale of the Units.

which are not disclosed herein or in SELLER’S SEC FILINGS, other than those incurred in the ordinary course of SELLER’s
businesses since inception. There has been no event or circumstance that has occurred or exists with respect to SELLER or its businesses,
properties, operations or financial condition, that, under applicable law, rule or regulation, requires disclosure but which has
not been so publicly announced or disclosed in SELLER’S SEC FILINGS.

FILINGS and is available upon request from SELLER. The business of SELLER as presently conducted does not, to SELLER’s knowledge,
infringe or conflict with any patent, trademark, copyright, or trade secret rights of any third parties or any other intellectual
property of any third parties. SELLER has not received written notice from any third party asserting that any intellectual property
owned or licensed by SELLER, or which SELLER otherwise has the right to use, is invalid or unenforceable by SELLER and, to SELLER’s
knowledge, there is no valid basis for any such claim (whether or not pending or threatened). No claim is pending or, to SELLER’s

Rights. Investors will have unlimited piggyback registration rights. Holders of a majority in interest of the shares of Series
B Preferred Stock (based on the $1.00 stated value) outstanding shall have the right to one demand registration during the three
(3) years following the effective date of SELLER’s registration statement under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended

acknowledges that it has been provided with, and has carefully read, the Certificate of Designation attached hereto as Exhibit
A, which describes all of the rights and other features of the Preferred Shares. Although I have been given access to SELLER’S
SEC FILINGS, I had a pre-existing relationship with the SELLER and did not learn of the SELLER through this filing with the SEC.
PURCHASER and its representatives have had the opportunity to meet with or talk with representatives of SELLER and have had the
opportunity to ask questions of, and receive answers from, representatives of SELLER concerning SELLER, and the terms and conditions
of this transaction, as well as to obtain any information requested by PURCHASER. PURCHASER believes that any questions raised
by PURCHASER or its representatives have been answered to the satisfaction of PURCHASER and its representatives. PURCHASER’s
decision to purchase the Preferred Shares is based, in part, on the answers to such questions as PURCHASER and its representatives
have raised concerning the transaction, and is based in part on its own evaluation of the risks and merits of the purchase and
SELLER’s proposed business activities.
has been advised that the Preferred Shares have not been registered under the 1933 Act, or qualified under the securities law of
any state, on the ground, among others, that no distribution or public offering of the Preferred Shares is to be effected and the
Preferred Shares will be issued by SELLER in connection with a transaction that does not involve any public offering within the
meaning of section 4(a)(2) of the Act and/or Rule 506 of Regulation D as promulgated by the SEC under the 1933 Act, and under any
applicable state blue sky authority. PURCHASER understands that SELLER is relying in part on PURCHASER's representations as set
forth herein for purposes of claiming such exemptions and that the basis for such exemptions may not be present if, notwithstanding
PURCHASER's representations, PURCHASER has in mind merely acquiring Shares for resale on the occurrence or nonoccurrence of some
predetermined event. PURCHASER has no such intention.
acknowledges that the securities underlying the Preferred Shares will be "restricted securities" (as such term is defined
in Rule 144 promulgated under the 1933 Act ("Rule 144")), that the securities underlying the Preferred Shares will include
the foregoing restrictive legend, and, except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, that the securities underlying the Preferred
Shares cannot be sold for a period of one year, notwithstanding other restrictions that apply to the Preferred Shares as more fully
set forth in this Agreement, from the date of issuance unless registered with the SEC and qualified by appropriate state securities
regulators, or unless PURCHASER obtains written consent from the SELLER and otherwise complies with an exemption from such registration
and qualification (including, without limitation, compliance with Rule 144).
PURCHASER has the full right, power and authority to enter into this Agreement and to carry out and consummate the transaction
contemplated herein. This Agreement constitutes the legal, valid and binding obligation of PURCHASER.
PURCHASER acknowledges that investment in the Preferred Shares involves substantial risks and is suitable only for persons of adequate
financial means who can bear the economic risk of an investment in the Preferred Shares for an indefinite period of time. PURCHASER
further represents that he or she:
adequate means of providing for his or her current needs and possible personal contingencies, has no need for liquidity in his
or her investment in the Preferred Shares, is able to bear the substantial economic risks of an investment in the Preferred Shares
for an indefinite period, and, at the present time, can afford a complete loss of his investment;
not have an overall commitment to investments which are not readily marketable that is disproportionate to his or her net worth,
and that his or her investment in the Preferred Shares will not cause such overall commitment to become excessive;
acquiring the Preferred Shares for his or her own account, for investment purposes only and not with a view toward resale, assignment
or distribution thereof, and no other person has a direct or indirect, beneficial interest, in whole or in part, in such Preferred
such knowledge and experience in financial, tax and business matters that he or she is capable of evaluating the merits and risks
of an investment in the Preferred Shares; and
been given the opportunity to ask questions of and to receive answers from persons acting on the SELLER’S behalf concerning
the terms and conditions of this transaction and also has been given the opportunity to obtain any additional information which
the SELLER possesses or can acquire without unreasonable effort or expense. As a result, PURCHASER has available sufficient information
concerning the affairs of the SELLER and has been able to evaluate the merits and risks of the investment in the Preferred Shares.
