by the Company of its obligations under the Transaction Agreements and/or the consummation of the transactions contemplated thereby,
will not (a) conflict with, result in the breach or violation of, or constitute (with or without the giving of notice or the passage
of time or both) a violation of, or default under, (i) subject to obtaining the Pre-Closing Consents, any bond, debenture, note
or other evidence of indebtedness, or under any lease, license, franchise, permit, indenture, mortgage, deed of trust, loan agreement,
joint venture or other agreement or instrument to which the Company or any subsidiary is a party or by which it or its properties

(i) and (iii) for such conflicts, breaches, violations or defaults that would not be likely to have, individually or in the aggregate,

Company in excess of $100,000 in a 12-month period.
(f) Notes. The Notes have been duly
authorized by the Company and, when duly executed and delivered and paid for as provided herein, will be duly and validly issued
and outstanding and will constitute valid and legally binding obligations of the Company enforceable against the Company in accordance
with their terms, subject to the Enforceability Exceptions. The issuance and delivery of each of the Notes is not subject to preemptive,

or encumbrances or result in the triggering of any anti-dilution or other similar rights under any outstanding securities of the
(g) No Registration. Assuming the accuracy
of each of the representations and warranties of the Purchaser herein, the issuance by the Company of the Notes is exempt from
registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).
(h) Reporting Status. The Company is
subject to the reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”),
and, as of the Closing, will have filed all documents and reports that the Company was required to file pursuant to Section I.A.3.b
of the General Instructions to Form S-3 promulgated under the Securities Act in order for the Company to be eligible to use Form
S-3 (the foregoing materials, together with any materials filed by the Company under the Exchange Act, whether or not required,
collectively, the “SEC Documents”). The SEC Documents complied as to form in all material respects with requirements
of the Securities Act and Exchange Act and the rules and regulations of the SEC promulgated thereunder (collectively, the “SEC
Rules”), and none of the SEC Documents and the information contained therein, as of their respective filing dates, contained
any untrue statement of a material fact or omitted to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary in order
to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading. As used in this Agreement,
“Previously Disclosed” means information set forth in or incorporated by reference into the SEC Documents filed
with the SEC on or after November 9, 2015 but prior to the date hereof (except for risks and forward-looking information set forth
in the “Risk Factors” section of the applicable SEC Documents or in any forward-looking statement disclaimers or similar
statements that are similarly non-specific and are predictive or forward-looking in nature).
(i) Legal Proceedings. Except as Previously
Disclosed, there is no action, suit or proceeding before any court, governmental agency or body, domestic or foreign, now pending
or, to the knowledge of the Company, threatened against the Company or its subsidiaries wherein an unfavorable decision, ruling
or finding would reasonably be expected to, individually or in the aggregate, (i) materially adversely affect the validity or enforceability
of, or the authority or ability of the Company to perform its obligations under, the Transaction Agreements or (ii) have a Material
Adverse Effect. The Company is not a party to or subject to the provisions of any injunction, judgment, decree or order of any
court, regulatory body, administrative agency or other governmental agency or body that might have, individually or in the aggregate,
a Material Adverse Effect.
(j) No Violations. Neither the
Company nor any of its subsidiaries is in violation of its respective certificate of incorporation, bylaws or other
organizational documents, or to its knowledge, is in violation of any statute or law, judgment, decree, rule, regulation,
ordinance or order of any court or governmental or regulatory body (including The NASDAQ Stock Market), governmental agency,
arbitration panel or authority applicable to the Company or any of its subsidiaries, which violation, individually or in the
aggregate, would be reasonably likely to have a Material Adverse Effect. Neither the Company nor any of its subsidiaries is
in default (and there exists no condition which, with or without the passage of time or giving of notice or both, would
constitute a default) in the performance of any bond, debenture, note or any other evidence of indebtedness in any indenture,
mortgage, deed of trust or any other material agreement or instrument to which the Company or any of its subsidiaries is a
party or by which the Company or any of its subsidiaries is bound or by which the properties of the Company are bound, which
would be reasonably likely to have a Material Adverse Effect. There has not been, and to the knowledge of the Company, there
is not pending or contemplated, any investigation by the SEC involving the Company or any current or former director or
officer of the Company and the Company is not an “ineligible issuer” pursuant to Rules 164, 405 and 433 under the
Securities Act. The Company has not received any comment letter from the SEC relating to any SEC Documents which has not been
resolved. The SEC has not issued any stop order or other order suspending the effectiveness of any registration statement
filed by the Company under the Exchange Act or the Securities Act.
(k) Listing Compliance. The Company
is in compliance with the requirements of The NASDAQ Stock Market for continued listing of the Common Stock thereon and has no
knowledge of any facts or circumstances that could reasonably lead to delisting of its Common Stock from The NASDAQ Stock Market.
The Company has taken no action designed to, or likely to have the effect of, terminating the registration of the Common Stock
under the Exchange Act or the listing of the Common Stock on The NASDAQ Stock Market, nor has the Company received any notification
that the SEC or The NASDAQ Stock Market is contemplating terminating such registration or listing. The transactions contemplated
by the Transaction Agreements will not contravene the rules and regulations of The NASDAQ Stock Market.
(l) Financial Statements. The consolidated
financial statements of the Company and its subsidiaries and the related notes thereto included in the SEC Documents (the “Financial
Statements”) comply in all material respects with applicable accounting requirements and the rules and regulations of
the SEC with respect thereto as in effect at the time of filing and present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position
of the Company and its subsidiaries as of the dates indicated and the results of its operations and cash flows for the periods
therein specified subject, in the case of unaudited statements, to normal year-end audit adjustments. Except as set forth in such
Financial Statements (or the notes thereto), such Financial Statements (including the related notes) have been prepared in accordance
with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles applied on a consistent basis throughout the periods therein specified (“GAAP”).
Except as set forth in the Financial Statements, neither the Company nor its subsidiaries has any material liabilities other than
liabilities and obligations that have arisen in the ordinary course of business and which would not be required to be reflected
in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.
(m) Disclosure. The Company understands
and confirms that the Purchasers will rely on the foregoing representations in effecting transactions in the Notes. All disclosure
furnished by or on behalf of the Company to the Purchasers in connection with this Agreement regarding the Company, its business
and the transactions contemplated hereby is true and correct in all material respects and does not contain any untrue statement
of a material fact or omit to state any material fact necessary in order to make the statements made therein, in light of the circumstances
under which they were made, not misleading. The Company acknowledges and agrees that the Purchasers have not made and do not make
any representations or warranties with respect to the transactions contemplated hereby other than those set forth in Section 5
5. Investment Representations.
In connection with the receipt of the Notes, each Purchaser represents and warrants to the Company the following:
(a) Organization. Purchaser is duly
organized, validly existing, and in good standing under the laws of the jurisdiction of its organization.
(b) Power. Purchaser has all requisite
power to execute and deliver this Agreement and to carry out and perform its obligations under the terms of this Agreement.

and performance of this Agreement by Purchaser has been duly authorized by all requisite action, and this Agreement constitutes
the legal, valid, and binding obligation of Purchaser enforceable in accordance with its terms (subject to the Enforceability Exceptions).
(d) Consents and Approvals. Purchaser
need not give any notice to, make any filing with, or obtain any authorization, consent, or approval of any government or governmental
agency in order to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.
(e) Non-Contravention. The execution,
delivery and, subject to satisfaction by the Company of the conditions to Closing set forth in Sections 7 and 8 hereof on or prior
to the issuance of the Notes, or performance, by Purchaser of this Agreement do not and will not contravene or constitute a default
under, or violation of, or be subject to penalties under, (i) any agreement (or require the consent of any party under any such
agreement that has not been made or obtained) to which Purchaser is a party, or (ii) any judgment, injunction, order, decree or
other instrument binding upon Purchaser, except where such contravention, default, violation or failure to obtain a consent, individually
or in the aggregate, would not reasonably be expected to impair Purchaser’s ability to perform fully any obligation which
Purchaser has or will have under this Agreement.
(f) Investor Qualification. Purchaser
understands the definition of the term “accredited investor” within the meaning of Regulation D, Rule 501(a), promulgated
by the SEC under the Securities Act, and qualifies as an accredited investor.

Only. Purchaser is aware of the Company’s business affairs and financial condition and has acquired sufficient information
about the Company to reach an informed and knowledgeable decision to acquire the Notes. Purchaser is acquiring the Notes for investment

to transfer the Notes to any other person or entity in such a “distribution.”

that the Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act by reason of a specific exemption therefrom, which exemption depends

Purchaser understands that the Notes are “restricted securities” under applicable U.S. federal and state
securities laws and that, pursuant to these laws, Purchaser must hold the Notes indefinitely unless they are registered with

available. Purchaser acknowledges that the Company has no obligation to register or qualify the Notes for resale.
(j) Risk of Investment. Purchaser realizes
that the purchase of the Notes will be a highly speculative investment and Purchaser may suffer a complete loss of its investment.
Purchaser understands all of the risks related to the purchase of the Notes. By reason of its business and financial experience,
Purchaser has the ability to protect its own interests in connection with the purchase of the Notes.
(k) Advisors. Purchaser has reviewed
with its own tax advisors the federal, state, and local tax consequences of this investment and the transactions contemplated by
this Agreement. Purchaser acknowledges that it has had the opportunity to review this Agreement and the transactions contemplated
hereby with Purchaser’s own legal counsel.

and will not be obligated to pay any broker commission, finders’ fee, success fee, or commission in connection with the transactions
