RECITALS:
     WHEREAS, the Company and the Sales Manager have entered into a Sales Agreement dated as of March 10, 2008 (the “Initial Agreement”);
     WHEREAS, the Company and Sales Manager have entered into a First Amendment to the Initial Agreement dated as of August 4, 2008 and a Second Amendment to the Initial Agreement dated as of November 24, 2009 (together with the Initial Agreement, the “Agreement”); and
     WHEREAS, the Company and the Sales Manager desire to amend the Agreement.
     NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and mutual agreements herein contained, intending to be legally bound, the Company and the Sales Manager agree as follows:
SECTION 1. Defined Terms. Capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meaning attributed to them in the Agreement.
SECTION 2. Amendment to Section 2.1(c) of the Agreement. Section 2.1(c) of the Agreement is amended and restated to read as follows:
     “(c) The compensation to the Sales Manager for sales of Common Stock sold under this Agreement shall be at the following commission rates: 3.0% of the gross sales price per share (“sales proceeds”) for the first $8 million of aggregate sales proceeds raised in each Sales Period; 2.5% of sales proceeds for the next $4 million of aggregate sales proceeds raised in each Sales Period; 2.0% of sales proceeds for next $88 million in aggregate sales proceeds raised in each Sales Period; and 1.0% of sales proceeds for any additional aggregate sales proceeds raised in each Sales Period. For purposes of this section 2.1(c), the initial “Sales Period” shall commence on March 10, 2008 and shall end on December 31, 2011 and each subsequent Sales Period shall be for a two year period, commencing on January 1 and ending on December 31 of the following calendar year. The remaining proceeds, after further deduction for any transaction fees imposed by any governmental or self-regulatory organization in respect to such sale shall constitute the net proceeds to the Company for such Common Stock (the “Net Proceeds”).
