f.           Publicity, Filings, Releases, Etc.  Each of the parties agrees that it will not disseminate any information relating to the Transaction Documents or the Transactions contemplated thereby, including issuing any press releases, holding any press conferences or other forums, or filing any reports (collectively, “Publicity”), without giving the other party reasonable advance notice and an opportunity to comment on the contents thereof.  Neither party will include in any such Publicity any statement or statements or other material to which the other party reasonably objects, unless in the reasonable opinion of counsel to the party proposing such statement, such statement is legally required to be included.  In furtherance of the foregoing, the Company will provide to the Purchaser drafts of the applicable text of the first filing of a Current Report on Form 8-K or a Quarterly or Annual Report on Form 10-Q or 10-K intended to be made with the SEC which refers to the Transaction Documents or the Transactions contemplated thereby as soon as practicable (but at least 2 Trading Days before such filing will be made) will not include in such filing any statement or statements or other material to which the other party reasonably objects, unless in the reasonable opinion of counsel to the party proposing such statement, such statement is legally required to be included.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, each of the parties hereby consents to the inclusion of the text of the Transaction Documents in filings made with the SEC as well as any descriptive text accompanying or as a part of such filing which is accurate and reasonably determined by the Company’s counsel to be legally required.  Notwithstanding, but subject to, the foregoing provisions of this Section 4f, the Company will, after the First Closing Date and the Second Closing Date, as applicable, promptly file a Current Report on Form 8-K or, if appropriate, a quarterly or annual report on the appropriate form, referring to the Transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents.
 
5.           TRANSFER AGENT INSTRUCTIONS.
 
a.           The Company warrants that, with respect to the Securities, other than the stop transfer instructions to give effect to Section 4a hereof, it will give its transfer agent no instructions inconsistent with instructions to issue Common Stock to the Holder as contemplated in the Note.  Nothing in this Section shall affect in any way the Purchaser’s obligations and agreement to comply with all applicable securities laws upon resale of the Securities.  If the Purchaser provides the Company with an opinion of counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Company that registration of a resale by the Purchaser of any of the Securities in accordance with clause (1)(B) of Section 4a of this Agreement is not required under the 1933 Act, the Company shall (except as provided in clause (2) of Section 4a of this Agreement) permit the transfer or reissue of the Shares represented by one or more certificates for Common Stock without legend (or where applicable, by electronic registration) in such name and in such denominations as specified by the Purchaser.

(ii)  The Company hereby agrees that, if the Purchaser, other than by reason of its negligence, illegal or willful misconduct (in each case, as determined by a non- appealable judgment to such effect), (x) becomes involved in any capacity in any action, proceeding or investigation brought by any shareholder of the Company, in connection with or as a result of the consummation of the Transactions contemplated by this Agreement or the other Transaction Documents, or if the Purchaser is impleaded in any such action, proceeding or investigation by any Person, or (y) becomes involved in any capacity in any action, proceeding or investigation brought by the SEC, any self-regulatory organization or other body having jurisdiction, against or involving the Company or in connection with or as a result of the consummation of the Transactions contemplated by this Agreement or the other Transaction Documents, or (z) is impleaded in any such action, proceeding or investigation by any Person, then in any such case, the Company shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Purchaser from and against and in respect of all losses, claims, liabilities, damages or expenses resulting from, imposed upon or incurred by the Purchaser, directly or indirectly, and reimburse such Purchaser for its reasonable legal and other expenses (including the cost of any investigation and preparation) incurred in connection therewith, as such expenses are incurred.  The indemnification and reimbursement obligations of the Company under this paragraph shall be in addition to any liability which the Company may otherwise have, shall extend upon the same terms and conditions to any Affiliates of the Purchaser who are actually named in such action, proceeding or investigation, and partners, directors, agents, employees and Purchaser Control Persons (if any), as the case may be, of the Purchaser and any such Affiliate, and shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of any successors, assigns, heirs and personal representatives of the Company, the Purchaser, any such Affiliate and any such Person.  The Company also agrees that neither the Purchaser nor any such Affiliate, partner, director, agent, employee or Purchaser Control Person shall have any liability to the Company or any Person asserting claims on behalf of or in right of the Company in connection with or as a result of the consummation of this Agreement or the other Transaction Documents, except as may be expressly and specifically provided in or contemplated by this Agreement.
 
b.           All claims for indemnification by any Indemnified Party (as defined below) under this Section shall be asserted and resolved as follows:
 
(i)           In the event any claim or demand in respect of which any Person claiming indemnification under any provision of this Section (an “Indemnified Party”) might seek indemnity under paragraph a of this Section is asserted against or sought to be collected from such Indemnified Party by a Person other than a party hereto or an Affiliate thereof (a “Third Party Claim”), the Indemnified Party shall deliver a written notification, enclosing a copy of all papers served, if any, and specifying the nature of and basis for such Third Party Claim and for the Indemnified Party’s claim for indemnification that is being asserted under any provision of this Section against any Person (the “Indemnifying Party”), together with the amount or, if not then reasonably ascertainable, the estimated amount, determined in good faith, of such Third Party Claim (a “Claim Notice”) with reasonable promptness to the Indemnifying Party.  If the Indemnified Party fails to provide the Claim Notice with reasonable promptness after the Indemnified Party receives notice of such Third Party Claim, the Indemnifying Party shall not be obligated to indemnify the Indemnified Party with respect to such Third Party Claim to the extent that the Indemnifying Party’s ability to defend has been prejudiced by such failure of the Indemnified Party.  The Indemnifying Party shall notify the Indemnified Party as soon as practicable within the period ending 30 calendar days following receipt by the Indemnifying Party of either a Claim Notice or an Indemnity Notice (as defined below) (the “Dispute Period”) whether the Indemnifying Party disputes its liability or the amount of its liability to the Indemnified Party under this Section and whether the Indemnifying Party desires, at its sole cost and expense, to defend the Indemnified Party against such Third Party Claim. The following provisions shall also apply.

(x)          If the Indemnifying Party notifies the Indemnified Party within the Dispute Period that the Indemnifying Party desires to defend the Indemnified Party with respect to the Third Party Claim pursuant to this paragraph b of this Section, then the Indemnifying Party shall have the right to defend, with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Party, at the sole cost and expense of the Indemnifying Party, such Third Party Claim by all appropriate proceedings, which proceedings shall be vigorously and diligently prosecuted by the Indemnifying Party to a final conclusion or will be settled at the discretion of the Indemnifying Party (but only with the consent of the Indemnified Party in the case of any settlement that provides for any relief other than the payment of monetary damages or that provides for the payment of monetary damages as to which the Indemnified Party shall not be indemnified in full pursuant to paragraph a of  this Section).  The Indemnifying Party shall have full control of  such defense and proceedings, including any compromise or settlement thereof; provided, however, that the Indemnified Party may, at the sole cost and expense of the Indemnified Party, at any time prior to the Indemnifying Party’s delivery of the notice referred to in the first sentence of this subparagraph (x), file any motion, answer or other pleadings or take any other action that the Indemnified Party reasonably believes to be necessary or appropriate protect its interests; and provided further, that if requested by the Indemnifying Party, the Indemnified Party will, at the sole cost and expense of the Indemnifying Party, provide reasonable cooperation to the Indemnifying Party in contesting any Third Party Claim that the Indemnifying Party elects to contest.  The Indemnified Party may participate in, but not control, any defense or settlement of any Third Party Claim controlled by the Indemnifying Party pursuant to this subparagraph (x), and except as provided in the preceding sentence, the Indemnified Party shall bear its own costs and expenses with respect to such participation.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Indemnified Party may take over the control of the defense or settlement of a Third Party Claim at any time if it irrevocably waives its right to indemnity under paragraph a of this Section with respect to such Third Party Claim.
 
(y)          If the Indemnifying Party fails to notify the Indemnified Party within the Dispute Period that the Indemnifying Party desires to defend the Third Party Claim pursuant to paragraph b of this Section, or if the Indemnifying Party gives such notice but fails to prosecute vigorously and diligently or settle the Third Party Claim, or if the Indemnifying Party fails to give any notice whatsoever within the Dispute Period, then the Indemnified Party shall have the right to defend, at the sole cost and expense of the Indemnifying Party, the Third Party Claim by all appropriate proceedings, which proceedings shall be prosecuted by the Indemnified Party in a reasonable manner and in good faith or will be settled at the discretion of the Indemnified Party (with the consent of the Indemnifying Party, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld).  The Indemnified Party will have full control of such defense and proceedings, including any compromise or settlement thereof; provided, however, that if requested by the Indemnified Party, the Indemnifying Party will, at the sole cost and expense of the Indemnifying Party, provide reasonable cooperation to the Indemnified Party and its counsel in contesting any Third Party Claim which the Indemnified Party is contesting.  Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this subparagraph (y), if the Indemnifying Party has notified the Indemnified Party within the Dispute Period that the Indemnifying Party disputes its liability or the amount of its liability hereunder to the Indemnified Party with respect to such Third Party Claim and if such dispute is resolved in favor of the Indemnifying Party in the manner provided in subparagraph (z) below, the Indemnifying Party will not be required to bear the costs and expenses of the Indemnified Party’s defense pursuant to this subparagraph (y) or of the Indemnifying Party’s participation therein at the Indemnified Party’s request, and the Indemnified Party shall reimburse the Indemnifying Party in full for all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by the Indemnifying Party in connection with such litigation.  The Indemnifying Party may participate in, but not control, any defense or settlement controlled by the Indemnified Party pursuant to this subparagraph (y), and the Indemnifying Party shall bear its own costs and expenses with respect to such participation.

(z)          If the Indemnifying Party notifies the Indemnified Party that it does not dispute its liability or the amount of its liability to the Indemnified Party with respect to the Third Party Claim under paragraph a of this Section or fails to notify the Indemnified Party within the Dispute Period whether the Indemnifying Party disputes its liability or the amount of its liability to the Indemnified Party with respect to such Third Party Claim, the amount of Damages specified in the Claim Notice shall be conclusively deemed a liability of the Indemnifying Party under paragraph a of this Section and the Indemnifying Party shall pay the amount of such Damages to the Indemnified Party on demand.  If the Indemnifying Party has timely disputed its liability or the amount of its liability with respect to such claim, the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party shall proceed in good faith to negotiate a resolution of such dispute; provided, however, that if the dispute is not resolved within 30 days after the Claim Notice, the Indemnifying Party shall be entitled to institute such legal action as it deems appropriate.
 
(ii)           In the event any Indemnified Party should have a claim under paragraph a of this Section against the Indemnifying Party that does not involve a Third Party Claim, the Indemnified Party shall deliver a written notification of a claim for indemnity under paragraph a of this Section specifying the nature of and basis for such claim, together with the amount or, if not then reasonably ascertainable, the estimated amount, determined in good faith, of such claim (an “Indemnity Notice”) with reasonable promptness to the Indemnifying Party.  The failure by any Indemnified Party to give the Indemnity Notice shall not impair such party’s rights hereunder except to the extent that the Indemnifying Party demonstrates that it has been irreparably prejudiced thereby.  If the Indemnifying Party notifies the Indemnified Party that it does not dispute the claim or the amount of the claim described in such Indemnity Notice or fails to notify the Indemnified Party within the Dispute Period whether the Indemnifying Party disputes the claim or the amount of the claim described in such Indemnity Notice, the amount of Damages specified in the Indemnity Notice will be conclusively deemed a liability of the Indemnifying Party under paragraph a of this Section and the Indemnifying Party shall pay the amount of such Damages to the Indemnified Party on demand.  If the Indemnifying Party has timely disputed its liability or the amount of its liability with respect to such claim, the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party shall proceed in good faith to negotiate a resolution of such dispute; provided, however, that it the dispute is not resolved within 30 days after the Claim Notice, the Indemnifying Party shall be entitled to institute such legal action as it deems appropriate.

11.           JURY TRIAL WAIVER.  The Company and the Purchaser hereby waive a trial by jury in any action, proceeding or counterclaim brought by either of the parties hereto against the other in respect of any matter arising out or in connection with the Transaction Documents.

12.           REGISTRATION RIGHTS

a.           Should the Company determine to file with the SEC a registration statement under the 1933 Act (other than on Form S-4 or Form S-8 or their then equivalents relating to equity securities to be issued solely in connection with any acquisition of any entity or business or equity securities issuable in connection with stock option or other bona fide employee benefit plans or equity securities to be issued solely in connection with a bona fide firm underwritten public offering of the Company’s securities) relating to an offering which includes common stock underlying securities issued by the Company that are exercisable or convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock, which offering is for its own account or the account of others, the Company shall send to the Purchaser written notice of such determination and, if within 20 days after such notice, the Purchaser shall so request in writing, the Company shall include in such registration statement all or any part of the Registrable Securities such Purchaser requests to be registered.  Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Company may withdraw any registration statement referred to in this Section 12a without incurring any liability to the Purchaser.  Furthermore, notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Purchaser shall have no registration rights with respect to any registration statement of the Company that was initially filed prior to the First Closing Date.

b.           In the event the staff of the SEC (the “Staff”) or the SEC seeks to characterize any offering pursuant to the registration statement filed by the Company as constituting an offering of securities by, or on behalf of, the Company, or in any other manner, such that the Staff or the SEC do not permit such Registration Statement to become effective and used for resales in a manner that does not constitute such an offering and that permits the continuous resale at the market by the Purchaser and others participating therein without being named therein as an “underwriter,” then the Company shall reduce the number of shares to be included in such Registration Statement by the Purchaser and all others until such time as the Staff and the SEC shall permit the registration statement to become effective.  In making such reduction, the Company shall reduce the number of securities to be included by the Purchaser and all others on a pro rata basis (based upon the number of securities to be included in the registration statement).

c.           The Company shall:

(i)           use commercially reasonable efforts to cause the registration statement to be declared effective by the SEC as soon as possible, but in any event not later than the fifth trading day following the date on which the Company is notified by the SEC that the registration statement will not be reviewed or is no longer subject to further review and comment;

(ii)           use commercially reasonable efforts to prepare and file with the SEC such amendments and supplements to the Registration Statement and the prospectus used in connection therewith (the “Prospectus”) as may be necessary to keep the registration statement continuously current, effective and free from any material misstatement or omission to state a material fact for a period not exceeding, with respect to the Registrable Securities, from the date it is first declared effective until the earlier of (A) the date on which the Purchaser may sell all Registrable Securities then held by the Purchaser pursuant to Rule 144 without any restriction as to the number of securities as of a particular date that can then be immediately sold, or (B) the public sale of all of the Registrable Securities;

(iii)           furnish to the Purchaser with respect to the Registrable Securities such number of copies of the registration statement, Prospectuses and preliminary Prospectuses in conformity with the requirements of the 1933 Act and such other documents as the Purchaser may reasonably request in writing, in order to facilitate the public sale or other disposition of all or any of the Registrable Securities by the Purchaser; provided, however, that the obligation of the Company to deliver copies of Prospectuses or preliminary Prospectuses to the Purchaser shall be subject to the receipt by the Company of reasonable assurances from the Purchaser that the Purchaser will comply with the applicable provisions of the 1933 Act and of such other securities or blue sky laws as may be applicable in connection with any use of such Prospectuses or Preliminary Prospectuses;

(iv)           file documents required of the Company for blue sky clearance in states specified in writing by the Purchaser and use its commercially reasonable efforts to maintain such blue sky qualifications during the period the Company is required to maintain the effectiveness of the Registration Statement pursuant to Section 12c.(ii); provided, however, that the Company shall not be required to qualify to do business or consent to service of process in any jurisdiction in which it is not now so qualified or has not so consented;

(v)           bear all expenses in connection with the preparation and filing of the registration statement (other than any underwriting discounts or commissions, brokers’ fees and similar selling expenses, and any other fees or expenses incurred by the Purchaser, including attorneys’ fees); and

(vi)           advise the Purchaser in writing promptly after it shall receive notice or obtain knowledge of the issuance of any stop order by the SEC delaying or suspending the effectiveness of the registration statement or of the initiation or threat of any proceeding for that purpose; and it will promptly use its commercially reasonable efforts to prevent the issuance of any stop order or to obtain its withdrawal at the earliest possible moment if such stop order should be issued.

13.           GOVERNING LAW:  MISCELLANEOUS.

a.           (i)   This Agreement shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of New York for contracts to be wholly performed in such state and without giving effect to the principles thereof regarding the conflict of laws.  Each of the parties consents to the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal courts in New York County in the State of New York as in connection with any dispute arising under this Agreement or any of the other Transaction Documents and hereby waives, to the maximum extent permitted by law, any objection, including any objection based on forum non conveniens, to the bringing of any such proceeding in such jurisdictions or to any claim that such venue of the suit, action or proceeding is improper.  To the extent determined by such court, the Company shall reimburse the Purchaser for any reasonable legal fees and disbursements incurred by the Purchaser in enforcement of or protection of any of its rights under any of the Transaction Documents.  Nothing in this Section shall affect or limit any right to serve process in any other manner permitted by law.

(ii)           The Company and the Purchaser acknowledge and agree that irreparable damage would occur in the event that any of the provisions of this Agreement or the other Transaction Documents were not performed in accordance with their specific terms or were otherwise breached.  It is accordingly agreed that the parties shall be entitled to an injunction or injunctions to prevent or cure breaches of the provisions of this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents and to enforce specifically the terms and provisions hereof and thereof, this being in addition to any other remedy to which any of them may be entitled by law or equity.
 

b.           Failure of any party to exercise any right or remedy under this Agreement or otherwise, or delay by a party in exercising such right or remedy, shall not operate as a waiver thereof.

c.           This Agreement shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the successors and assigns of each of the parties hereto.

i.           This Agreement may be amended only by an instrument in writing signed by the party to be charged with enforcement thereof.

j.           This Agreement supersedes all prior agreements and understandings among the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof.
