The maximum number of Units that the Company may sell to the Purchasers is 6,000,000, which may be increased to 10,000,000 Units upon approval by the Companys board of directors in its sole discretion without further notice or consent to the Purchasers. The Purchasers obligations hereunder are expressly not subject to or conditioned on the purchase of Units by any or all of such Other Purchasers.
The aggregate purchase price for the Units to be purchased by the Purchaser (the Purchase Price) shall be the amount set forth on the Purchasers signature page hereto.
The closing of the sale and issuance of the Units to the Purchaser (the Closing) shall occur on the date when the Purchaser delivers to the (i) the Company, (a) this Agreement, and (b) the Purchaser's Subscription Application (collectively, the "Subscription Documents") executed by Purchaser; and (ii) the Company, a wire transfer of funds or check in the amount of the Purchase Price, which shall be made contemporaneously with the execution and delivery of the Subscription Documents in accordance with the following instructions:

Each of the Transaction Documents, when executed and delivered by the Company, constitutes the valid and binding obligation of the Company, enforceable against the Company in accordance with its terms, subject to applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, fraudulent conveyance, moratorium, or other similar laws affecting creditors rights and remedies generally, and subject, as to enforceability, to general principles of equity (regardless of whether enforcement is sought in a proceeding at law or in equity).

Representations and Warranties of the Purchaser.
The Purchaser hereby represents and warrants to the Company as follows:
Authorization of the Documents.
The Purchaser has all requisite power and authority (corporate or otherwise) to execute, deliver, and perform its obligations under the Transaction Documents, and the execution, delivery, and performance by the Purchaser of its obligations under the Transaction Documents has been duly authorized by all requisite action on the part of the Purchaser and each such Transaction Document, when executed and delivered by the Purchaser, shall constitute the valid and binding obligation of the Purchaser, enforceable against the Purchaser in accordance with its terms, subject to applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, fraudulent conveyance, moratorium or other similar laws affecting creditors rights and remedies generally, and subject, as to enforceability, to general principles of equity (regardless of whether enforcement is sought in a proceeding at law or in equity).

Access to Company Information.
The Purchaser acknowledges that it has been afforded access and the opportunity to obtain all financial and other information concerning the Company that such Purchaser desires (including the opportunity to meet with the Companys executive officers, either in person or telephonically). The Purchaser has reviewed copies of all reports filed by the Company (the Filings) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the Commission) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act), since December 31, 2011, all of which are available for review at www.sec.gov. The Purchaser further acknowledges that it is familiar with the contents of the Filings and that there is no further information about the Company that the Purchaser desires in determining whether to acquire the Units in the Offering.
The Purchaser acknowledges that an investment in the Units is extremely speculative and that there is a substantial risk that the investor may lose the Purchasers entire investment in the Units. The Purchaser acknowledges, understands and confirms that the Purchaser has reviewed the risk factors disclosed in the Memorandum.
Brokers and Finders.
Unless the Company shall engage a placement agent in connection with the Offering or shall otherwise determine in its sole discretion, the Company shall not be obligated to pay any commission, brokerage fee, or finders fee based on any alleged agreement or understanding between the Purchaser and a third person in respect of the transactions contemplated hereby. The Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that the Company may pay up to 7% of the Purchase Price and issue warrants to purchase shares of the Common Stock in an amount up to 7% of the Shares, as commissions, to one or more FINRA registered broker-dealers pursuant to an agreement or agreements between the Company and such broker-dealer(s). The Purchaser hereby agrees to indemnify the Company against any claim by any third person for any commission, brokerage fee, finders fee, or other payment with respect to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby based on any alleged agreement or understanding between the Purchaser and any such third person, whether express or implied from the actions of the Purchaser or anyone acting or purporting to act on behalf of the Purchaser.
Indemnification by the Purchaser.
The Purchaser hereby agrees to indemnify and defend (with counsel acceptable to the Company) the Company and its officers, directors, employees, and agents and hold them harmless from and against any and all liability, loss, damage, cost, or expense, including costs and reasonable attorneys fees, incurred on account of or arising from:
any breach of or inaccuracy in any of the Purchasers representations, warranties, or agreements made herein, in any of the Transaction Documents, or in any document or instrument contemplated hereby or thereby; and
any action, suit, or proceeding based on a claim that the Purchasers representations, warranties or agreements made herein, in any of the Transaction Documents, or in any document or instrument contemplated hereby or thereby, were inaccurate or misleading, or otherwise cause for obtaining damages or redress from the Company or any current or former officer, director, employee, or agent of the Company under the Securities Act.
The Company shall use commercially reasonable efforts to register the Shares and the Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants (the Registrable Securities) with the Commission, on a "resale" registration statement (the Registration Statement) providing for the resale of all of the Registrable Securities on or prior to the 90th day following the expiration of the Offering (the Filing Date), for an offering to be made on a continuous basis pursuant to Rule 415 under the Securities Act; provided, however, that all rights of registration pursuant to this Section 7 shall expire with respect to any Registrable Securities that have been sold, transferred or otherwise disposed of by the Purchaser or that may be sold pursuant to Rule 144 under the Securities Act. The Company shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to cause the Registration Statement to be declared effective under the Securities Act as promptly as possible after the filing thereof and to keep such Registration Statement continuously effective under the Securities Act until such date as is the earlier of (x) the date when all Registrable Securities covered by such Registration Statement have been sold or (y) the date on which the Registrable Securities may be sold pursuant to Rule 144 under the Securities Act. If the Company shall determine in its sole discretion, as a result of a Rule 415 comment or otherwise to limit the number of shares to be registered, the Company may limit the number of Registrable Securities to be included in such registration on pro rata basis among all holders without further notice or consent from the holder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if, at any time prior to the effective date of the Registration Statement filed in connection with this Section 7, the Company shall determine for any reason not to register or to delay registration of such securities, the Company may, at its election, give written notice of such determination to each record holder of Registrable Securities and, following such notice, (i) in the case of a determination not to register, shall be relieved of its obligation to register any Registrable Securities in connection with such registration, and (ii) in the case of determination to delay registering, shall be permitted to delay registering any Registrable Securities for such period as the Company shall determine to be necessary or advisable.

All questions concerning the construction, interpretation, and validity of this Agreement shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the domestic laws of the State of Nevada without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether in the State of Nevada or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Nevada.

In addition, all representations and warranties hereunder shall be given independent effect so that if a particular representation or warranty proves to be incorrect or is breached, the fact that another representation or warranty concerning the same or similar subject matter is correct or is not breached will not affect the incorrectness of or a breach of a representation and warranty hereunder. The exhibits and any schedules annexed hereto are hereby made part of this Agreement in all respects.
This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, and each such counterpart of this Agreement shall be deemed to be an original instrument, but all such counterparts together shall constitute but one agreement.

Lock-Up/Leak-Out Agreement; Market Stand-Off Agreement.
Lock-Up Agreement. For the 120 days following the earlier of (i) the effective date of the Registration Statement, or (ii) the date on which the Registrable Securities may be sold pursuant to Rule 144 under the Securities Act, the Purchaser may not (i) offer, pledge, sell, contract to sell, sell any option or contract to purchase, purchase any option or contract to sell, grant any option, right or warrant to purchase, lend or otherwise transfer or dispose of, or (ii) enter into any swap or other agreement, arrangement or transaction that transfers to another, in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, any of the economic consequences of ownership of the Purchasers Registrable Securities (the Lock-Up Period). Upon the expiration of the Lock-Up Period, for a period of 180 days thereafter (the Leak-Out Period), each Purchaser shall be permitted to sell up to one percent (1%) of such Purchasers Registrable Securities, calculated as of the time of sale, during each month thereafter. Upon the expiration of the Leak-Out Period, each Purchaser shall be entitled to sell or otherwise dispose of such Purchasers Registrable Securities in any manner as such Purchaser sees fit. All Registrable Securities sold during the Leak-Out Period shall be sold on a non-cumulative basis, meaning that if a Purchaser did not sell all of the Registrable Securities the Purchaser was entitled to sell during a particular month in the Leak-Out Period, the Purchaser may not cumulate the unsold portion of that months allotment to the next months allotment. The Purchaser agrees that all sales of the Companys Common Stock will be made at no less than the best asked prices, and no sales will be made at the bid prices for the Common Stock.
The Purchaser agrees that, if the Purchaser is requested by the Company or an underwriter (an Underwriter) of shares of the Companys Common Stock or other securities of the Company, the Purchaser will not directly or indirectly sell, assign or otherwise transfer or dispose of any Common Stock, warrants or other securities of the Company held by it or under its control for a specified period of time (not to exceed 180 days) following the effective date of a registration statement filed by the Company under the Securities Act in connection with any offering of the Companys securities. Although the provisions of Section 20 of this Agreement shall be binding upon the Purchaser and the Purchasers successors and assigns without the execution of any further agreements or documents memorializing this obligation, if the Company or an Underwriter so requests, the Purchaser will execute such further agreements and documents as are requested to further memorialize this obligation. Any such further agreements or documents shall be in a form satisfactory to the Company and the Underwriter, if applicable. The Company may impose stop-transfer instructions with respect to the Shares, Warrant Shares, or other securities owned by such Purchaser, subject to the foregoing restriction until the end of the specified period.
