Under the Amendment, the Company increased the number of shares of Series B Preferred that the Company is authorized to issue from 100 shares to 280 shares. Prior to the Amendment, the Company has issued 100 shares of Series B Preferred Stock to Mr. Blisko. The increase in the number was approved in order to allow the Company to sell an additional 180 shares of Series B Preferred to Mr. Blisko under the Purchase Agreement.

Liquidation. In the event of any voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company (a “Liquidation”), the holders of Shares of Series B Preferred Stock then outstanding shall be entitled to be paid out of the assets of the Company available for distribution to its stockholders, before any payment shall be made to the holders of Junior Securities by reason of their ownership thereof, an amount per Share equal to the greater of (i) the Series B Original Issue Price of $25,000, or (ii) such amount per Share as would have been payable had all shares of Series B Preferred Stock been converted into Common Stock immediately prior to such Liquidation (the amount payable to this sentence is hereinafter referred to as the “Series B Liquidation Amount”).

Subject to the limitations described below, and assuming there are no adjustments to the Conversion Price, the Company would have the right to convert the outstanding shares of Series B preferred Stock into 1,000,000 shares of Common Stock.
