(e) Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers

Stock Option and Restricted Stock Grants. On May3, 2017,
the Compensation Committee approved awards of stock options and
time-based restricted stock to certain executive officers of the
Company to the 2015 Equity Incentive Plan (the Plan). The options
are exercisable for $4.60 per share (the closing price on the
date of grant) and will vest in five equal annual installments
beginning on the first anniversary of the date of grant. The
time-based restricted stock will vest in three equal annual
installments beginning on the first anniversary of the date of
grant. The time-based restricted stock awards and stock options
are subject to accelerated vesting upon the occurrence of a
Change in Control or termination without cause subject to certain
conditions as provided in the Plan.

In 2016, the Company awarded performance-based restricted stock
as part of the annual equity grant. During the past year the
Company changed both the composition of its Board of Directors
and its President and Chief Executive Officer. As a result, the
Company is in the process of changing its strategies and the
related long-term plans. During this transition period, the
Compensation Committee agreed with managements recommendation
that the most appropriate approach to the annual equity award was
a combination of time-based restricted stock and stock options,
which would, they believe, promote both employee retention and
focus on long-term value creation.

The table below sets forth the number of stock options and
time-based restricted stock awarded to the Companys chief
executive officer, chief financial officer and named executive
officers as reflected in the Companys most recently-filed proxy
