The Series F Preferred Stock is convertible into an aggregate of approximately 7,829,388 shares of common stock at a conversion price of $0.60 per share, subject to certain ownership limitations, upon the Company amending its certificate of incorporation to provide for the full conversion of the Series F Preferred Stock, the full exercise of the Warrants and the satisfaction of the minimum bid requirements of the Nasdaq Capital Market (the “Amendment Date”).
