We will pay the Sales Agent an aggregate of up to 3.0% of the gross proceeds of the sales price per share of common stock sold through the Sales Agent under the Sales Agreement.
We are not obligated to make any sales of our common stock under the Sales Agreement and no assurance can be given that we will sell any shares under the Sales Agreement, or, if we do, as to the price or amount of shares that we will sell, or the dates on which any such sales will take place. The Sales Agreement will terminate upon the earlier of (i) the sale of all of our common stock subject to the Sales Agreement, or (ii) termination of the Sales Agreement as provided therein.
