Item 1.01 - Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement On January 24, 2017 the Company completed a Securities Purchase Agreement (the "Agreement") with a group of accredited investors. The Debentures are issued pursuant to an exemption from registration under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act") and therefore are not registered under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any state of the United States and cannot be offered, sold, pledged or otherwise transferred or assigned in the United States or to a resident of the United States unless an exemption from such registration requirements is available. This Debenture has not been and will not be qualified for sale or registered under the laws of any other jurisdiction and any transferee should refer to the securities laws of any jurisdiction applicable to them. Under the Agreement, the accredited investors agreed to purchase from us 36 unsecured Debenture Units for gross proceeds of $180,000.
