The Company further understands and acknowledges that following the public disclosure of the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents, one or more Investors may engage in hedging and/or trading activities at various times during the period that the Transaction Securities are outstanding, and such hedging and/or trading activities, if any, can reduce the value of the existing stockholders’ equity interest in the Company both at and after the time the hedging and/or trading activities are being conducted. The Company acknowledges that such aforementioned hedging and/or trading activities do not constitute a breach of this Agreement or any other Transaction Document or any of the documents executed in connection herewith or therewith.
 
4.18           Manipulation of Price.  Neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries has, and, to the Company’s Knowledge, no Person acting on their behalf has, directly or indirectly, (i) taken any action designed to cause or to result in the stabilization or manipulation of the price of any security of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries to facilitate the sale or resale of any of the Transaction Securities, (ii) sold, bid for, purchased, or paid any compensation for soliciting purchases of, any of the Transaction Securities (other than the Placement Agent), or (iii) paid or agreed to pay to any Person any compensation for soliciting another to purchase any other securities of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries (other than the Placement Agent).

(a)           Indemnification by the Company.  The Company will indemnify and hold harmless each Investor and its officers, directors, members, shareholders, partners, representatives, employees and agents, successors and assigns, and each other person, if any, who controls such Investor within the meaning of the Securities Act, against any losses, obligations, claims, damages, liabilities, contingencies, judgments, fines, penalties, charges, costs (including, without limitation, court costs, reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs of defense and investigation), amounts paid in settlement or expenses, joint or several, (collectively, “Claims”) reasonably incurred in investigating, preparing or defending any action, claim, suit, inquiry, proceeding, investigation or appeal taken from the foregoing by or before any court or governmental, administrative or other regulatory agency, body or the SEC, whether pending or threatened, whether or not an indemnified party is or may be a party thereto, to which any of them may become subject insofar as such Claims (or actions or proceedings, whether commenced or threatened, in respect thereof) arise out of or are based upon: (i) any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of any material fact contained in any Registration Statement, any preliminary prospectus or final prospectus contained therein, or any amendment or supplement thereof; (ii) any blue sky application or other document executed by the Company specifically for that purpose or based upon written information furnished by the Company filed in any state or other jurisdiction in order to qualify any or all of the Registrable Securities under the securities laws thereof (any such application, document or information herein called a “Blue Sky Application”); (iii) 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; (iv) any violation by the Company or its agents of any rule or regulation promulgated under the Securities Act applicable to the Company or its agents and relating to action or inaction required of the Company in connection with such registration; or (v) any failure to register or qualify the Registrable Securities included in any such Registration Statement in any state where the Company or its agents has affirmatively undertaken or agreed in writing that the Company will undertake such registration or qualification on an Investor’s behalf and will reimburse such Investor, and each such officer, director or member and each such controlling person for any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by them in connection with investigating or defending any such Claim or action; provided, however, that the Company will not be liable in any such case if and 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 such Investor or any such controlling person in writing specifically for use in such Registration Statement or Prospectus.
 
(b)           Indemnification by the Investors.  Each Investor agrees, severally but not jointly, to indemnify and hold harmless, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the Company, its directors, officers, employees, stockholders, partner, representatives and each person who controls the Company (within the meaning of the Securities Act) against any Claims resulting from any untrue statement of a material fact or any omission of a material fact required to be stated in the Registration Statement or Prospectus or preliminary prospectus or amendment or supplement thereto or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, to the extent, but only to the extent that such untrue statement or omission is contained in any information furnished in writing by such Investor to the Company specifically for inclusion in such Registration Statement or Prospectus or amendment or supplement thereto.  In no event shall the liability of an Investor be greater in amount than the dollar amount of the proceeds (net of all expense paid by such Investor in connection with any claim relating to this Section 5.2 and the amount of any damages such Investor has otherwise been required to pay by reason of such untrue statement or omission) received by such Investor upon the sale of the Registrable Securities included in the Registration Statement giving rise to such indemnification obligation.
 
 
 
12

 
 
 
(c)           Conduct of Indemnification Proceedings.  Any person entitled to indemnification hereunder shall (i) give prompt notice to the indemnifying party of any claim with respect to which it seeks indemnification and (ii) permit such indemnifying party to assume the defense of such claim with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the indemnified party; provided that any person entitled to indemnification hereunder shall have the right to employ separate counsel and to participate in the defense of such claim, but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be at the expense of such person unless (a) the indemnifying party has agreed to pay such fees or expenses, or (b) the indemnifying party shall have failed to assume the defense of such claim or employ counsel reasonably satisfactory to such person or (c) in the reasonable judgment of any such person, based upon written advice of its counsel, a conflict of interest exists between such person and the indemnifying party with respect to such claims (in which case, if the person notifies the indemnifying party in writing that such person elects to employ separate counsel at the expense of the indemnifying party, the indemnifying party shall not have the right to assume the defense of such claim on behalf of such person); and provided, further, that the failure of any indemnified party to give notice as provided herein shall not relieve the indemnifying party of its obligations hereunder, except to the extent that such failure to give notice shall materially adversely affect the indemnifying party in the defense of any such claim or litigation.  It is understood that the indemnifying party shall not, in connection with any proceeding in the same jurisdiction, be liable for fees or expenses of more than one separate firm of attorneys at any time for all such indemnified parties.  No indemnifying party will, except with the consent of the indemnified party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, consent to entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement that does not include as an unconditional term thereof the giving by the claimant or plaintiff to such indemnified party of a release from all liability in respect of such claim or litigation.
 
(d)           Contribution.  If for any reason the indemnification provided for in the preceding paragraphs (a) and (b) is unavailable to an indemnified party or insufficient to hold it harmless, other than as expressly specified therein, then the indemnifying party shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by the indemnified party as a result of such Claim in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the indemnified party and the indemnifying party, as well as any other relevant equitable considerations.  No person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Securities Act shall be entitled to contribution from any person not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation.  In no event shall the contribution obligation of a holder of Registrable Securities be greater in amount than the dollar amount of the proceeds (net of all expenses paid by such holder in connection with any claim relating to this Section 5.2 and the amount of any damages such holder has otherwise been required to pay by reason of such untrue or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission) received by it upon the sale of the Registrable Securities giving rise to such contribution obligation.
 
(e)           Other Rights to Indemnification.  The provisions of Section 5.2 of this Agreement shall be in addition to any other rights to indemnification or contribution which any indemnified party may have pursuant to law or contract and shall remain operative and in full force and effect regardless of any investigation made or omitted by or on behalf of any indemnified party and shall survive the transfer of the Registrable Securities by any such party.
 
5.3.           Company Efforts.  If and whenever the Company is required by the provisions of this Section 5 to use its best efforts to register any Registrable Securities under the 1933 Act, the Company shall, as expeditiously as possible under the circumstances:
 
(a)           Prepare and file with the SEC a registration statement with respect to such Registrable Securities and use its best efforts to cause such registration statement to become effective as soon as possible after filing (and in any event within 90 days of the filing of such registration statement) and remain effective three years.
 
 
 
13

 
 
 
(b)           Subject to Section 5.1 of this Agreement, prepare and file with the SEC such amendments and supplements to such registration statement and the prospectus used in connection therewith as may be necessary to keep such registration statement current and effective for three years and to comply with the provisions of the 1933 Act, and any regulations promulgated thereunder, with respect to the sale or disposition of all Registrable Securities covered by the registration statement required to effect the distribution of the securities.
 
(c)           Furnish to the Sellers participating in the offering pursuant to such registration statement, applicable copies (in reasonable quantities) of summary, preliminary, final, amended or supplemented prospectuses, in conformity with the requirements of the 1933 Act and any regulations promulgated thereunder, and other documents as reasonably may be required in order to facilitate the disposition of the securities, but only while the Company is required under the provisions hereof to keep the registration statement current.
 
(d)           Use its best efforts to register or qualify the Registrable Securities covered by such registration statement under such other securities or blue sky laws of such jurisdictions of the United States as the Sellers participating in the offering shall reasonably request, and do any and all other acts and things which may be reasonably necessary to enable each participating Seller to consummate the disposition of the Registrable Securities in such jurisdictions.
 
(e)           Notify each Seller selling Registrable Securities, at any time when a prospectus relating to any such Registrable Securities covered by such registration statement is required to be delivered under the 1933 Act, of the Company’s becoming aware that the prospectus included in such registration statement, as then in effect, includes an untrue statement of a material fact or omits to state any material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading in the light of the circumstances then existing, and promptly prepare and furnish to each such Seller selling Registrable Securities a reasonable number of copies of a prospectus supplemented or amended so that, as thereafter delivered to the purchasers of such Registrable Securities, such prospectus shall not include an untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading in the light of the circumstances then existing.
 
(f)           As soon as practicable after the effective date of the registration statement, and in any event within eighteen (18) months thereafter, make generally available to the Sellers participating in the offering an earnings statement (which need not be audited) covering a period of at least twelve (12) consecutive months beginning after the effective date of the registration statement, which earnings statement shall satisfy the provisions of Section 11(a) of the 1933 Act, including, at the Company’s option, Rule 158 thereunder. To the extent that the Company files such information with the SEC in satisfaction of the foregoing, the Company need not deliver the above referenced earnings statement to the Seller.
 
(g)           Upon request, deliver promptly to counsel of each Seller participating in the offering copies of all correspondence between the SEC and the Company, its counsel or auditors and all memoranda relating to discussions with the SEC or its staff with respect to the registration statement and permit each such Seller to do such investigation at such Seller’s sole cost and expense, upon reasonable advance notice, with respect to information contained in or omitted from the registration statement as it deems reasonably necessary and for a proper purpose related to the Seller offering securities pursuant to the registration statement. Each Seller agrees that it will use its best efforts not to interfere unreasonably with the Company’s business when conducting any such investigation and each Seller shall keep any such information received pursuant to this Section 3 confidential.
 
 
 
14

 
 
 
(h)           Provide a transfer agent and registrar located in the United States for all such shares of Common Stock covered by such registration statement not later than the effective date of such registration statement.
 
(i)           Pay all Registration Expenses (as defined below) incurred in connection with a registration of Registrable Securities, whether or not such registration statement shall become effective; provided that each Seller shall pay all underwriting discounts, commissions and transfer taxes, and their own counsel and accounting fees, if any, relating to the sale or disposition of such Seller’s Registrable Securities pursuant to such registration statement. As used herein, “Registration Expenses” means any and all reasonable and customary expenses incident to performance of or compliance with the registration rights set forth herein, including, without limitation, (i) all SEC and stock exchange or Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) registration and filing fees, (ii) all fees and expenses of complying with state securities or blue sky laws (including reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel for the underwriters in connection with blue sky qualifications of the Registrable Securities but no other expenses of or disbursements by the underwriters or their counsel), (iii) all printing, messenger and delivery expenses, and (iv) the reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel for the Company and the Company’s independent public accountants.
 
(j)           Timely make all filings with FINRA and pay all FINRA filing expenses (including FINRA filing fees and reasonable legal fees of counsel to the Placement Agent in connection with such filings) incurred in connection with filings that are required by Rule 5110 of FINRA so that FINRA members (including without limitation the Placement Agent) may resell Registrable Securities pursuant to an effective registration statement without further filings under such rule by them.
 
5.4.           Cooperation by Investor.  Each Investor shall furnish to the Company or the Underwriter, as applicable, such information regarding the Investor and the distribution proposed by it as the Company may reasonably request in connection with any registration or offering referred to in this Section 5.  Each Investor shall cooperate as reasonably requested by the Company in connection with the preparation of the registration statement with respect to such registration, and for so long as the Company is obligated to file and keep effective such registration statement, shall provide to the Company, in writing, for use in the registration statement, all such information regarding the Investor and its plan of distribution of the Note Shares, Warrant Shares or Agent Warrant Shares included in such registration as may be reasonably necessary to enable the Company to prepare such registration statement, to maintain the currency and effectiveness thereof and otherwise to comply with all applicable requirements of law in connection therewith.
 
5.5.           Specific Performance.  The Company acknowledges that there is no adequate remedy at law for failure by it to comply with the provisions of this Section 5 and that such failure would not be adequately compensable in damages, and therefore agrees that its obligations and agreements contained in this Section 5 may be specifically enforced. In the event that the Company shall fail to file such registration statement when required pursuant to Section 5.1 of this Agreement or to keep any registration statement effective as provided in this Section 5 or otherwise fails to comply with its obligations and agreements in this Section 5, then, in addition to any other rights or remedies an Investor  may have at law or in equity, including, without limitation, the right of rescission, the Company shall indemnify and hold harmless the Investor from and against any and all manner or loss which they may incur as a result of such failure. In addition, the Company shall also reimburse the Investor for any and all reasonable legal fees, expenses and disbursements incurred by them in enforcing their rights pursuant to this Section 5, regardless of whether any litigation was commenced; provided, however, that the Company shall not be liable for the fees and expenses of more than one law firm, which firm shall be designated by the Placement Agent.

6.

(A)           the Transaction Securities are sold pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act;
 
(B)           the Investor shall have delivered to the Company,  at the cost of the Company, a customary opinion of counsel that shall be in form, substance and scope reasonably acceptable to the Company, to the effect that the Transaction Securities to be sold or transferred may be sold or transferred pursuant to an exemption from such registration;
 
(C)           the Transaction Securities are sold or transferred to an “affiliate” (as defined in Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act (or a successor rule) (“Rule 144”)) of the Investor who agrees to sell or otherwise transfer the Transaction Securities only in accordance with this Section 6.1 and who is an Accredited Investor;

The Company acknowledges that a breach by it of its obligations hereunder will cause irreparable harm to the Investors, by vitiating the intent and purpose of the transactions contemplated hereby. Accordingly, the Company acknowledges that the remedy at law for a breach of its obligations under this Section 6.2 may be inadequate and agrees, in the event of a breach or threatened breach by the Company of the provisions of this Section, that the Investors shall be entitled, in addition to all other available remedies, to an injunction restraining any breach and requiring immediate transfer, without the necessity of showing economic loss and without any bond or other security being required.

(b)           Promptly after receipt by any Investor (the “Indemnified Person”) of notice of any demand, claim or circumstances which would or might give rise to a claim or the commencement of any action, proceeding or investigation in respect of which indemnity may be sought pursuant to Section 9.4, such Indemnified Person shall promptly notify the Company in writing and the Company shall assume the defense thereof, including the employment of counsel reasonably satisfactory to such Indemnified Person, and shall assume the payment of all fees and expenses; provided, however, that the failure of any Indemnified Person so to notify the Company shall not relieve the Company of its obligations hereunder except to the extent that the Company is materially prejudiced by such failure to notify.  In any such proceeding, any Indemnified Person shall have the right to retain its own counsel, but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be at the expense of such Indemnified Person unless: (i) the Company and the Indemnified Person shall have mutually agreed to the retention of such counsel; or (ii) in the reasonable judgment of counsel to such Indemnified Person representation of both parties by the same counsel would be inappropriate due to actual or potential differing interests between them.  The Company shall not be liable for any settlement of any proceeding effected without its written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, but if settled with such consent, or if there be a final judgment for the plaintiff, the Company shall indemnify and hold harmless such Indemnified Person from and against any loss or liability (to the extent stated above) by reason of such settlement or judgment.  Without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Person, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, the Company shall not effect any settlement of any pending or threatened proceeding in respect of which any Indemnified Person is or could have been a party and indemnity could have been sought hereunder by such Indemnified Party, unless such settlement includes an unconditional release of such Indemnified Person from all liability arising out of such proceeding.
 
9.5.           Entire Agreement. This Agreement contains the entire agreement between the parties hereto in respect of the subject matter contained herein and supersedes all prior agreements and understandings of the parties, oral and written, with respect to the subject matter contained herein.
 
9.6           Underlying Shares.  The Company agrees at all times as long as the Notes, Warrants or Agent Warrants may be converted or exercised, to keep reserved from the authorized and unissued Common Stock, such number of shares of Common Stock as may be issuable upon exercise of the Notes, Warrants or Agent Warrants.
 
9.7.           Third Party Beneficiaries. This Agreement is intended for the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective permitted successors and assigns, and, except for the Placement Agent and other registered broker-dealers, if any, who are specifically agreed to be and acknowledged by each party as third party beneficiaries hereof, is not for the benefit of, nor may any provision hereof be enforced by, any other person.
 
9.8.           Current Public Information. With a view to making available to the holders of Registrable Securities the benefits of certain rules and regulations of the SEC which may permit the sale of the Registrable Securities to the public without registration, for a minimum of three years  from the date of the Final Closing, if  the Investors, Placement Agent or transferees of either still own Registrable Securities, the Company shall use its reasonable best efforts to: (i) make and keep public information available, as those terms are understood and defined in Rule 144 under the Securities Act, at all times; (ii) file with the SEC in a timely manner all reports and other documents required of the Company under the Exchange Act; and (iii) for a minimum of 36 months from the date of the Final Closing if an Investor, the Placement Agents or a transferee of either still owns any Registrable Securities, and in relation to a proposed sale of the Registerable Securities, furnish to such holder of Registrable Securities, upon any reasonable request, a written statement by the Company as to its compliance with Rule 144 under the Securities Act (including without limitation compliance with Rule 144(c) relating to current public information), a copy of the most recent annual or quarterly report of the Company, and such other reports and documents of the Company as such holder may reasonably request in availing itself of any rule or regulation of the SEC allowing a holder to sell any such securities without registration.

9.9.           Successors and Assigns.  This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties and their successors and assigns. Neither the Company nor any Investor shall assign this Agreement or any rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of the other. Notwithstanding the foregoing, but subject to the provisions of Section 6.1 hereof, any Investor may, without the consent of the Company, assign its rights hereunder to any person that purchases Transaction Securities in a private transaction from an Investor or to any of its “affiliates,” as that term is defined under the 1934 Act.
 
9.10.           Public Disclosures. The Company shall  on or before 8:30 a.m., New York time, within four (4) Business Days after the date of the First Closing, file a Current Report on Form 8-K describing all the material terms of the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents in the form required by the 1934 Act and attaching all the material Transaction Documents that are required to be filedpursuant to those requirements, ( which may include, without limitation, this Agreement and any schedules or attachments to this Agreement) (including any exhibits, the “8-K Filing”). From and after the filing of the 8-K, the Company shall have disclosed all material, non-public information (if any) delivered to any of the Investors by the Company in connection with the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents. The Company shall be entitled, without the prior approval of any Investor, to make the Press Release and any other press release or other public disclosure with respect to such transactions (i) in substantial conformity with the 8-K Filing and contemporaneously therewith and (ii) as is required by applicable law and regulations (provided that in the case of clause (i) the Placement Agent shall be consulted by the Company in connection with any such press release or other public disclosure prior to its release). Without the prior written consent of the applicable Investor (which may be granted or withheld in such Investor’s sole discretion), the Company shall not disclose the name of such Investor in any filing (other than the 8-K Filing, any Registration Statement registering the Transaction Securities and any other filing as is required by applicable law and regulations), announcement, release or otherwise.
 
9.11.           Binding Effect; Benefits.  This Agreement and all the provisions hereof shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns; nothing in this Agreement, expressed or implied, is intended to confer on any persons other than the parties hereto or their respective successors and permitted assigns, any rights, remedies, obligations or liabilities under or by reason of this Agreement.
 
9.12.           Amendment; Waivers.  All modifications, amendments or waivers to this Agreement shall require the written consent of both the Company and a majority-in-interest of the Investors (based on the number of Units purchased hereunder).
 
9.13.           Applicable Law; Disputes.  This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York without giving effect to the conflict of law provisions thereof, and the parties hereto irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, or, if jurisdiction in such court is lacking, the Supreme Court of the State of New York, New York County, in respect of any dispute or matter arising out of or connected with this Agreement
 
9.14.           Further Assurances.  Each party hereto shall do and perform or cause to be done and performed all such further acts and shall execute and deliver all such other agreements, certificates, instruments and documents as any other party hereto reasonably may request in order to carry out the intent and accomplish the purposes of this Agreement and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby.

9.15.           Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original and all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same instrument.  This Agreement may also be executed via facsimile, which shall be deemed an original.
 
9.16.           Independent Nature of Investors.  The obligations of each Investor under this Agreement or other transaction document are several and not joint with the obligations of any other Investor, and no Investor shall be responsible in any way for the performance of the obligations of any other Investor under this Agreement or any other transaction document.  Each Investor shall be responsible only for its own representations, warranties, agreements and covenants hereunder.  The decision of each Investor to purchase Units pursuant to this Agreement has been made by such Investor independently of any other Investor and independently of any information, materials, statements or opinions as to the business, affairs, operations, assets, properties, liabilities, results of operations, condition (financial or otherwise) or prospects of the Company which may have been made or given by any other Investor or by any agent or employee of any other Investor, and no Investor or any of its agents or employees shall have any liability to any other Investor (or any other person) relating to or arising from any such information, materials, statements or opinions.  Nothing contained herein or in any other transaction document, and no action taken by any Investor pursuant hereto or thereto, shall be deemed to constitute the Investors as a partnership, an association, a joint venture or any other kind of entity, or create a presumption that the Investors are in any way acting in concert or as a group with respect to such obligations or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.  Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement or any other transaction document, each Investor shall be entitled to independently protect and enforce its rights arising out of this Agreement or out of the other transaction documents, and it shall not be necessary for any other Investor to be joined as an additional party in any proceeding for such purpose.  Each Investor has been represented by its own separate legal counsel in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby and acknowledge and understand that Mintz Levin Cohn Ferris Glovsky & Popeo, PC has served as counsel to the Placement Agent only.

Existing Notes with Warrants – From November 14, 2011 through February 28, 2012, we issued convertible promissory notes with an aggregate principal amount of $2,000,000, and warrants to purchase an aggregate of 4,000,000 shares of common stock, to private investors (including our Director, Stephen Baksa) for an aggregate of $2,000,000 cash.  The notes bear interest at 10% per annum and mature one year after issuance, and are convertible into our common stock at $0.50 per share at the option of the holder.  We have the right to prepay the notes on 10 days' written notice. The warrants expire three years after issuance; the exercise price of the warrants is $0.25 per share. The warrants do not allow for cashless exercise. In  June of 2012, a total of 1,000,000 of the issued warrants were exercised for $250,000 in cash.

As of September 7, 2012, in connection with the current offering of Units consisting of  notes with warrants,  the notes and outstanding warrants issued for a total of $1,300,000 of the Existing Notes with Warrants was amended to extend the Maturity date to September 7, 2014 and extend the unexercised warrants to September 7, 2017. The amended notes were also amended to rank in equal priority to the notes of the current offering.  We may amend the remaining $700,000 in Existing notes and related warrants during and subsequent to the present offering.
