Upon the closing of the Private Placement, the Company received gross proceeds of approximately $6.0 million. The Company sold the Common Stock to the Investor in reliance on the exemption from registration afforded by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act and corresponding provisions of state securities or “blue sky” laws. The Investor represented that it is acquiring the Common Stock for investment only and not with a view towards, or for resale in connection with, the public sale or distribution thereof. Accordingly, the Common Stock has not been registered under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an exemption from registration under the Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws.
