The following is a statement of the rights of the Holder and the conditions to which this Warrant is subject, and to which Holder, by acceptance of this Warrant, agrees:
1. Number and Price of Shares; Exercise Period.
(a) Number of Shares. Subject to any previous exercise of the Warrant, the Holder shall have the right to purchase the number of Shares that equals the quotient obtained by dividing (x) the Warrant Coverage Amount (as defined below) by (y) the Exercise Price (as defined below), prior to (or in connection with) the expiration of this Warrant as provided in Section 8.
(b) Warrant Coverage Amount. The "Warrant Coverage Amount" shall be equal to ten million dollars ($10,000,000.00).
(c) Exercise Price. The exercise price per Share shall initially be equal to $0.50, subject to adjustment pursuant hereto (the "Exercise Price").
(d) Exercise Period. This Warrant shall be exercisable, in whole or in part, at any time prior to (or in connection with) the expiration of this Warrant as set forth in Section 8.
2. Exercise of the Warrant.
(a) Exercise. The purchase rights represented by this Warrant may be exercised at the election of the Holder, in whole or in part, in accordance with Section 1, by:
(i) the tender to the Company at its principal office (or such other office or agency as the Company may designate) of a notice of exercise in the form of Exhibit A (the "Notice of Exercise"), duly completed and executed by or on behalf of the Holder, together with the surrender of this Warrant; and
(ii) the payment to the Company of an amount equal to (x) the Exercise Price multiplied by (y) the number of Shares being purchased, by (a) wire transfer or certified, cashier's or other check acceptable to the Company and payable to the order of the Company; (b) surrender and cancellation of promissory notes or other instruments representing indebtedness of the Company to the Holder; or (c) a combination of (a) and (b).
(b) Stock Certificates. The rights under this Warrant shall be deemed to have been exercised and
the Shares issuable upon such exercise shall be deemed to have been issued immediately prior to the close of business on the date this Warrant is exercised in accordance with its terms, and the person entitled to receive the Shares issuable upon such exercise shall be treated for all purposes as the holder of record of such Shares as of the close of business on such date. As promptly as reasonably practicable on or after such date, and in any event within thirty (30) days thereafter, the Company shall issue and deliver to the person or persons entitled to receive the same a certificate or certificates for that number of shares issuable upon such exercise. In the event that the rights under this Warrant are exercised in part and have not expired, the Company shall execute and deliver a new Warrant
reflecting the number of Shares that remain subject to this Warrant.
(c) No Fractional Shares or Scrip. No fractional shares or scrip representing
fractional shares shall be issued upon the exercise of the rights under this Warrant. In lieu of such fractional share to which the Holder would otherwise be entitled, the Company shall make a cash payment equal to the Exercise Price multiplied by such fraction.
(d) Conditional Exercise. The Holder may exercise this Warrant conditioned upon (and effective immediately prior to) consummation of any transaction that would cause the expiration of
this Warrant pursuant to Section 8 by so indicating in the notice of exercise.
(e) Forced Exercise. If (i) a registration is demanded by Holder pursuant to that
certain Registration Rights Agreement dated as of the date hereof by and among the Holder and the Company, (ii) the volume weighted average sales price per share of the Common Stock (as reported, absent manifest error, on the OTCBB or any other internationally recognized exchange or market upon which the Common Stock is then listed) for the thirty (30) Trading Days prior to the effective date of such registration statement is equal to or greater than $1.00 per share and (iii) the Company delivers a written notice to Holder stating its intent to force the
Holder to exercise this Warrant under this Section 2(e) within ten (10) business days of Holder demanding a registration, then, contingent upon such registration statement being declared effective, Holder shall exercise this Warrant for at least that number of shares of Common Stock equal to twenty-five percent (25%) of the Warrant Coverage Amount divided by the Exercise Price;
provided, however, that the Company shall be able to force the Holder to exercise this Warrant under this Section 2(e) one (1) time only.
(f) Reservation of Stock. The Company agrees during the term the rights under this Warrant are exercisable to reserve and
keep available from its authorized and unissued shares of common stock solely for the purpose of effecting the exercise of this Wan-ant such number of shares as shall from time to time be sufficient to effect the exercise of the rights under this Warrant; and if at any time the number of authorized but unissued shares of common stock shall not be sufficient for purposes of the exercise of this Warrant in accordance with its terms, without limitation of such other remedies as may be available to the Holder, the Company will use its best efforts to take such corporate
action as may be necessary to increase its authorized and unissued shares of its common stock to a number of shares as shall be sufficient for such purposes. The Company represents and warrants that all shares that may be issued upon the exercise of this Warrant will, when issued in accordance with the terms hereof, be validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable.
3. Replacement of the Warrant. Subject to the receipt of evidence reasonably
satisfactory to the Company of the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of this Warrant and, in the case of loss, theft or destruction, on delivery of an
indemnity agreement reasonably satisfactory in form and substance to the Company or, in the case of mutilation, on surrender and cancellation of this Warrant, the Company at the expense of the Holder shall execute and deliver, in lieu of this Warrant, a new wan-ant of like tenor and amount.
4. Transfer of the Warrant.
(a) Warrant Register. The Company shall maintain a register (the "Warrant Register") containing the name and address of the Holder or Holders.

for all purposes, notwithstanding any notice to the contrary. Any Holder of this Warrant (or of any portion of this Warrant) may change its address as shown on the Wan-ant Register by written notice to the Company requesting a change.
(b) Warrant Agent. The Company may appoint an agent for the purpose of maintaining the Warrant Register referred to in Section 4(a), issuing the Shares or other securities then issuable upon the exercise of the rights under this Warrant, exchanging this Warrant, replacing this Warrant or conducting related activities.

issue thereof shall have paid to the Company the amount of such tax or shall have established to the satisfaction of the Company that such tax has been paid or is not payable.
5. Restrictions on Transfer of the Warrant and Shares; Compliance with Securities Laws. By acceptance of this Warrant, the Holder agrees to comply with the following:
(a) Restrictions on Transfers. Subject to Section 5(b), this Warrant may not be transferred or assigned in whole or in part without the Company's prior written consent (which shall not be unreasonably withheld), and any attempt by Holder to transfer or assign any rights, duties or obligations that arise under this Warrant without such permission shall be void. Any transfer of this Warrant or the Shares (the
"Securities") must be in compliance with all applicable federal and state securities laws. The Holder agrees not to make any sale, assignment, transfer, pledge or other disposition of all or any portion of the Securities, or any beneficial interest therein, unless and until the transferee thereof has agreed in writing for the benefit of the Company to take and hold such Securities subject to, and to be bound by, the terms and conditions set forth in this Warrant to the same extent as if the transferee were the original Holder hereunder, and
(i) there is then in effect a registration statement under the Securities Act covering such proposed disposition and such disposition is made in accordance with such registration statement, or
(ii) (A) the Holder shall have given prior written notice to the Company of the Holder's intention to make such disposition and shall have furnished the Company with a detailed description of the manner and circumstances of the proposed disposition and, with respect to any transfer of this Warrant, except for those dispositions set forth in Section 5(b) below, the Company shall have provided the Holder with prior written approval of such disposition (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed) and (B)
if requested by the Company, other than as set forth in Section 5(b) below, the Holder shall have furnished the Company, at the Holder's expense, with evidence reasonably satisfactory to the Company (including, if requested by the Company, an opinion of counsel to the Holder) that such disposition will not require registration of such Securities under the Securities Act. It is agreed that the Company will not require opinions of counsel for transactions made pursuant to Rule 144 under the Securities Act, except in unusual circumstances.
(b) Permitted Transfers. Permitted transfers include (i) a transfer not involving a change in beneficial ownership, or (ii) transactions involving the distribution without consideration of Securities by any Holder to (x) a parent, subsidiary or other affiliate of a Holder that is a corporation, (y) any of the Holder's partners, members or other equity owners, or retired partners or
members, or to the estate of any of its partners, members or other equity owners or retired partners or members, or (z) a venture capital fund that is controlled by or under common control with one or more general partners or managing members of or shares the same management company with, the Holder; provided, in each case, that the Holder shall give written notice to the Company of the Holder's intention to effect such disposition and shall have furnished the Company with a detailed description of the manner and circumstances of the proposed disposition.
(c) Securities Law Legend. The Securities shall (unless otherwise permitted by the provisions of this Warrant) be stamped or imprinted with a legend substantially similar to the following (in addition to any legend required by state securities laws):
THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED HEREBY HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE "ACT"), OR UNDER THE SECURITIES LAWS OF CERTAIN STATES. THESE SECURITIES MAY NOT BE OFFERED, SOLD OR OTHERWISE TRANSFERRED, PLEDGED OR HYPOTHECATED EXCEPT AS PERMITTED UNDER THE ACT AND APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS LN ACCORDANCE WITH APPLICABLE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS OR AN EXEMPTION THEREFROM. THE ISSUER OF THESE SECURITIES MAY REQUIRE AN OPINION OF COUNSEL REASONABLY SATISFACTORY TO THE ISSUER THAT SUCH OFFER, SALE OR TRANSFER, PLEDGE OR HYPOTHECATION OTHERWISE COMPLIES WITH THE ACT AND ANY APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS. THIS CERTIFICATE MUST BE SURRENDERED TO THE COMPANY OR ITS TRANSFER AGENT AS
A CONDITION PRECEDENT TO THE SALE, TRANSFER, PLEDGE OR HYPOTHECATION OF ANY INTEREST IN ANY OF THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED HEREBY.
(d) Instructions Regarding Transfer Restrictions. The Holder consents to the Company making a notation on its records and giving instructions to any transfer agent in order to implement the restrictions on transfer established in this Section 5.
(e) Removal of Legend. The legend referring to federal and state securities laws identified in Section 5(c) stamped on a certificate evidencing the Shares and the stock transfer instructions and record notations with respect to such securities shall be removed and the Company shall issue a certificate without such legend to the holder of such securities if (i) such securities are registered under the Securities Act, or (ii) such holder provides the Company with an opinion of
counsel reasonably acceptable to the Company to the effect that a sale or transfer of such securities may be made without registration or qualification.
6. Adjustments. Subject to the expiration of this Warrant pursuant to Section 8, the number and kind of shares purchasable hereunder and the Exercise Price therefor are subject to adjustment from time to time, as follows:
(a) Merger or Reorganization. If at any time there shall be any reorganization, recapitalization, merger or consolidation (a "Reorganization") involving the Company (other than as otherwise provided for herein or as would cause the expiration of this Warrant under Section 8) in which shares of the Company's stock are converted into or exchanged for securities, cash or other property, then, as a part of, such Reorganization, lawful provision shall be made so that the Holder shall thereafter be entitled to receive upon exercise of this Warrant, the kind and
amount of securities, cash or other property of the successor corporation resulting from such Reorganization, equivalent in value to that which a holder of the Shares deliverable upon exercise of this Warrant would have been entitled in such Reorganization if the right to purchase the Shares hereunder had been exercised immediately prior to such Reorganization. In any snob case, appropriate adjustment (as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors of the successor corporation) shall be made in the application of the provisions of this Warrant with respect to the rights and interests of the Holder after such Reorganization to the end that the provisions of this Warrant shall be applicable after the event,
as near as reasonably may be, in relation to any shares or other securities deliverable after that event upon the exercise of this Warrant.
(b) Reclassification of Shares. If the securities issuable upon exercise of this Warrant are changed into the same or a different number of securities of any other class or classes by reclassification, capital reorganization or otherwise (other than as otherwise provided for herein) (a "Reclassification"), then, in any such event, in lieu of the number of Shares which the Holder would otherwise have been entitled to receive, the Holder shall have the right thereafter to exercise this
Warrant for a number of shares of such other class or classes of stock that a holder of the number of securities deliverable upon exercise of this Warrant immediately before that change would have been entitled to receive in such Reclassification, all subject to further adjustment as provided herein with respect to such other shares.
(c) Subdivisions and Combinations. In the event that the outstanding shares of common stock are subdivided (by stock split, by payment of a stock dividend or otherwise) into a greater number of shares of such securities, the number of Shares issuable upon exercise of the rights under this Warrant immediately prior to such subdivision shall, concurrently with the effectiveness of such subdivision, be proportionately increased, and the Exercise Price shall be proportionately decreased, and in the event that the outstanding shares of common stock are combined
(by reclassification or otherwise) into a lesser number of shares of such securities, the number of Shares issuable upon exercise of the rights under this Warrant immediately prior to such combination shall, concurrently with the effectiveness of such combination, be proportionately decreased, and the Exercise Price shall be proportionately increased.
(d) Dilutive Issuances. If and whenever on or after the date of issuance of this Warrant, the Company issues or sells, or in accordance with this Section 6(d) is deemed to have issued or sold, any shares of Common Stock, Options or Convertible Securities, except for an Excluded Security, for a per share consideration less than a price (the "Applicable Price") equal to either (i) in the case of the issuance or sale of shares of Common Stock, the lesser of $0.25 per share or the Exercise Price in effect immediately prior to such issue or sale or (ii) in the
case of the issuance or sale of Options or other Convertible Securities, the Exercise Price in effect immediately prior to such issue or sale (the foregoing a "Dilutive Issuance"), then immediately after such Dilutive Issuance, the Exercise Price then in effect shall be reduced to an amount equal to the Applicable Price.
(e) Notice of Adjustments. Upon any adjustment in accordance with this Section 6, the Company shall give notice thereof to the Holder, which notice shall state the event giving rise to the adjustment, the Exercise Price as adjusted and the number of securities or other property purchasable upon the exercise of the rights under this Warrant, setting forth in reasonable detail the method of calculation of each. The Company shall, upon the written request of any Holder, furnish or cause to be furnished to such Holder a certificate setting forth (i) such
adjustments, (ii) the Exercise Price at the time in effect and (iii) the number of securities and the amount, if any, of other property that at the time would be received upon exercise of this Warrant
