of the Warrants. The Warrants will be exercisable for five years
from the initial exercise date. The closing of the sales of these

The net proceeds to the Company from the transactions, after
deducting the placement agents fees and expenses (not including
the Wainwright Warrants, as defined below), the Companys
estimated offering expenses, and excluding the proceeds, if any,

approximately $1.85 million. The Company intends to use the net
proceeds from the transactions for general corporate purposes.
