The description of the Credit Agreement set forth above is
qualified in its entirety by reference to the Credit Agreement, a
copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and is incorporated
herein by reference.

On October 2, 2015, the Company issued and sold a Subordinated
Note in the aggregate principal amount of $4,185,000 to JAX
Legacy Investment 1, LLC (Jax) to a Subscription Agreement dated
October 2, 2015 between the Company and Jax. On April 3, 2017,
the Company and Jax amended and restated the Subordinated Note in
its entirety in the form of the 10% Convertible Subordinated Note
(the 10% Note) in the aggregate principal amount of $4,185,000.
The 10% Note matures on October 3, 2021 (the Maturity Date). The
10% Note is convertible into shares of the Companys Common Stock
at a conversion price equal to $5.83 per share (subject to
adjustment as provided in the 10% Note upon any stock dividend,
stock combination or stock split or upon the consummation of
certain fundamental transactions) (the Conversion Price) ;
provided, however, that unless and until such time as the
Company has received Requisite Stockholder Approval (as
hereinafter defined) the Company shall not be permitted to make
any interest payment in shares of Common Stock to the extent that
such issuance would cause the Company to exceed the Conversion
Limit (as hereinafter defined). Interest on the 10% Note accrues
at the rate of 10% per annum and shall be paid quarterly in
arrears on June 30, September 30, December 31 and March 31,
beginning on June 30, 2017, on each conversion date with respect
to the 10% Note (as to that principal amount then being
converted), and on the Maturity Date (each such date, an Interest
Payment Date). At the option of the Company, interest may be paid
on an Interest Payment Date either in cash or in shares of Common
Stock of the Company, which Common Stock shall be valued at 95%
of the average daily VWAP of the Common Stock for the 20 trading
days immediately prior to such Interest Payment Date provided,
however
, that unless and until such time as the Company has
received Requisite Stockholder Approval the Company shall not be
permitted to make any interest payment in shares of Common Stock
to the extent that such issuance would cause the Company to
exceed the Conversion Limit. For purposes of the 10% Note the
term Requisite Stockholder Approval means approval by the
stockholders of the Company in compliance with Section 712 of the
NYSE MKT Company Guide and Regulation 14A under the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, of the issuance of shares of
Common Stock that would constitute more than 19.99% of the Common
Stock outstanding immediately prior to the date of issuance of
the 10% Note (the Conversion Limit) upon (i) the conversion of
the 10% Note and/or (iii) the payment of interest on the 10% Note
in shares of Common Stock and/or (iv) any other issuance of
Common Stock in connection with the issuance of the 10% Note. All
or any portion of the 10% Note may be redeemed by the Company for
cash at any time on or after April 3, 2018 that the average daily
VWAP of the Companys Common Stock reported on the principal
trading market for the Common Stock exceeds the then applicable
Conversion Price for a period of 20 trading days. The redemption
price shall be an amount equal to 100% of the then outstanding
principal amount of the 10% Note being redeemed, plus accrued and
unpaid interest thereon. Except as otherwise provided in the 10%
Note, the Company may not prepay any portion of the principal
amount of any 10% Note without the prior written consent of the
holder thereof. The Company shall be required to prepay the 10%
Notes together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon upon the
consummation by the Company of any Change of Control:
provided, however, that the holder of the 10% Note may
elect to convert the outstanding principal amount of the Note
prior to actual payment in cash for any such redemption by the
delivery of a Notice of Conversion to the Company. For purposes
of the 10% Note, a Change of Control of the Company shall mean
any of the following: (A) the Company effects any sale of all or
substantially all of its assets in one transaction or a series of
related transactions or (B) the consummation of any transaction
(including, without limitation, any merger or consolidation), the
result of which is that any person or entity together with their
affiliates, becomes the beneficial owner, directly or indirectly,
of more than 50% of the Common Stock of the Company. The 10% Note
is subordinated in payment to the obligations of the Company to
the lenders parties to the Credit Agreement, to a Subordination
and Intercreditor Agreements, dated as of March 31, 2017 by and
among the Company, the Borrowers, the Agent and Jax.

The 10% Note issued to Jax is not registered under the Securities
Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act). Jax is an
accredited investor. The issuance of the 10% Note to Jax is
exempt from the registration requirements of the Act in reliance
on an exemption from registration provided by Section 4(2) of the
Act

A copy of the Form of 10% Note is filed as Exhibit 4.1 hereto. A
copy of the Subordination Agreement is filed as Exhibits 10.2,
hereto. The descriptions of each of the 10% Note and the
Subordination Agreement contained in this Current Report on the
Form 8-K are qualified in their entirety by reference to Exhibits
4.1 and 10.2, respectively.
