A. The Company and Purchaser wish to complete a transaction pursuant to which the Purchaser will purchase 660,000 shares of the Company’s Common Stock on the terms of this Agreement.

1.2 “ Change of Control ” means (a) the sale, lease, assignment, transfer, conveyance or disposal of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company, or (b) the acquisition of this Company by another entity by means of consolidation, corporate reorganization or merger, or other transaction or series of related transactions, in each case excluding (x) any such transaction in which the stockholders of the Company immediately prior to such transaction own more than 50% of the voting power of acquiror (or parent thereof) in such transaction immediately after such transaction and (y) any transaction determined by the Board of Directors in good faith to be primarily for capital raising purposes.

1.3 “ Constructive Termination ” means the Purchaser terminates his Services because of (a) a substantial diminution in the nature, status or prestige of Purchaser’s responsibilities, title or reporting level as they exist immediately prior to a Change of Control or the addition of responsibilities of a nature, status or prestige inconsistent with the Purchaser’s responsibilities as they exist prior to a Change of Control, (b) a substantial diminution in Purchaser’s compensation or benefits, or (c) the Company requires the Purchaser to relocate as a condition of his continued employment by the Company.

1.4 “ Repurchase Price ” means $0.10 per share (as appropriately adjusted for any stock combination, stock split, stock dividend, recapitalization, or other similar transaction).


1.5 “ Services ” means services to be provided by the Purchaser to the Company as an employee of the Company, a consultant to the Company, or a member of the Company’s Board of Directors (or any committee thereof).

1.6 “ Unvested Shares ” means the Shares held by the Purchaser that are then subject to the Right of Repurchase.

(a) if, prior to a Change of Control, the Company terminates the Purchaser’s Services without Cause or a Constructive Termination occurs at any time prior to the expiration of the Right of Repurchase, then one-fourth (1/4th) of the Shares (or the actual number of Unvested Shares immediately prior to such termination event, if less) will become Vested Shares immediately prior to such termination event, and the Company will have no Right of Repurchase with respect to such Shares;

(b) if, within twelve (12) months following the closing of a transaction which constitutes a Change of Control, the Company terminates the Purchaser’s Services without Cause or a Constructive Termination occurs, then all of the then Unvested Shares held by the Purchaser will become Vested Shares immediately prior to such termination event, and the Company will have no Right of Repurchase with respect to any of the Shares; or
