|(1)||We are registering an aggregate of 8,820,509 shares of our common stock, which is comprised of (i) 7,320,509 shares of our common stock (the “Put Shares”) that we may put to Southridge Partners II LP (“Southridge” or the “Selling Stockholder”) pursuant to a private equity purchase agreement (the “Equity Purchase Agreement”) between the Selling Stockholder and the registrant entered into on July 13, 2016, and (ii) 1,500,000 shares of our common stock (the “Initial Shares”) that we issued to Southridge upon execution of the Equity Purchase Agreement. In the event of stock splits, stock dividends, or similar transactions involving the common stock, the number of common shares registered shall, unless otherwise expressly provided, automatically be deemed to cover the additional securities to be offered or issued pursuant to Rule 416 promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). In the event that adjustment provisions of the Equity Purchase Agreement require the registrant to issue more shares than are being registered in this registration statement, for reasons other than those stated in Rule 416 of the Securities Act, the registrant will file a new registration statement to register those additional shares.|
