In the aggregate, all of the Series F Preferred Stock issued to Ridgeway is convertible into such number of shares of Common Stock equal to eighty percent (80%) of the issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock, post-conversion, on the conversion date (taking into effect any forward or reverse stock splits or consolidations). The Series F Preferred Stock votes on an as converted to common stock basis.

As a result of the issuance of the Common Shares and Series F Preferred Stock, Ridgeway Therapeutics became the owner of approximately 54.14% of the Company’s issued and outstanding Common Stock. Furthermore, by virtue of the issuance of the Series F Preferred Stock, Ridgeway will vote on an as converted to common stock basis which shall be equal to eighty percent (80%) of the issued and outstanding Common Stock post-conversion.
