3.             Registration and Transfer on Company Books

3.1            The Company shall maintain books for the registration and transfer of the Warrants and the registration and transfer of the shares of stock issued upon exercise of the Warrants.

3.2            Prior to due presentment for registration of transfer of this Warrant Certificate, or the shares of stock issued upon exercise of the Warrants, the Company may deem and treat the registered Holder as the absolute owner thereof.

3.3            Neither this Warrant Certificate nor the Warrant Shares have been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”).  The Company will not transfer this Warrant Certificate or the Warrants or issue or transfer the Warrant Shares unless (i) there is an effective registration covering such Warrants or Warrant Shares, as the case may be, under the Act and applicable states securities laws, (ii) it first receives a letter from an attorney, acceptable to the Company's board of directors or its agents, stating that in the opinion of the attorney the proposed issue or transfer is exempt from registration under the Act and under all applicable state securities laws, or (iii) the transfer is made pursuant to Rule 144 under the Act.  Subject to the foregoing, this Warrant Certificate, the Warrants represented hereby, and the Warrant Shares, may be sold, assigned or otherwise transferred voluntarily by the Holder to officers or directors of the Holder, to members of such persons’ immediate families, or to the Holder’s parent or subsidiary corporations.  The Company shall register upon its books any permitted transfer of a Warrant Certificate, upon surrender of same to the Company with a written instrument of transfer duly executed by the registered Holder or by a duly authorized attorney.  Upon any such registration of transfer, new Warrant Certificate(s) shall be issued to the transferee(s) and the surrendered Warrant Certificate shall be canceled by the Company.  A Warrant Certificate may also be exchanged, at the option of the Holder, for new Warrant Certificates representing in the aggregate the number of Warrant Shares evidenced by the Warrant Certificate surrendered.

4.             Reservation of Shares

The Company covenants that it will at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized Series G Stock, solely for the purpose of issue upon exercise of the Warrants, such number of shares of Series G Stock as shall then be issuable upon the exercise of all the Warrants represented by this Warrant Certificate.  The Company covenants that all Warrant Shares shall be duly and validly issued and, upon payment for such shares as set forth herein, fully paid and nonassessable and free from all taxes, liens and charges with respect to the issue thereof, and that upon issuance such shares shall be listed on the national securities exchange, if any, on which the other shares of outstanding Series G Stock of the Company are then listed.

Upon receipt by the Company of reasonable evidence of the ownership of and the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of any Warrant Certificate and, in the case of loss, theft or destruction, of indemnity reasonably satisfactory to the Company, or, in the case of mutilation, upon surrender and cancellation of the mutilated Warrant Certificate, the Company shall execute and deliver in lieu thereof a new Warrant Certificate representing the number of Warrant Shares evidenced by the lost, stolen, destroyed or mutilated Warrant Certificate.

6.             Adjustments of Exercise Price and Shares

6.1            In the event of changes in the outstanding Series G Stock of the Company by reason of dividends, distributions, split-ups, recapitalizations, reclassifications, combinations or exchanges of shares, separations, reorganizations, liquidations, consolidation, acquisition of the Company (whether through merger or acquisition of substantially all the assets or stock of the Company), or the like, the number and class of shares available under the Warrants in the aggregate and the Exercise Price shall be correspondingly adjusted to give the Holder of the Warrants, on exercise for the same aggregate Exercise Price, the total number, class, and kind of shares or other property as the Holder would have owned had the Warrants been exercised prior to the event and had the Holder continued to hold such shares until the event requiring adjustment.  The form of this Warrant Certificate need not be changed because of any adjustment in the number of Warrant Shares subject to this Warrant Certificate or the Exercise Price provided herein.

6.2            If at any time or from time to time the holders of all of the shares of Series G Stock of the Company (or the holders of all of the shares of stock or other securities at the time receivable upon the exercise of the Warrants) shall, as a class, have received or become entitled to receive, without payment therefor:

 

(i)

Common Stock or any shares of stock or other securities which are at any time directly or indirectly convertible into or exchangeable for Common Stock, or any rights or options to subscribe for, purchase or otherwise acquire any of the foregoing by way of dividend or other distribution (other than a dividend or distribution covered in Section 6.1 above),

3

 

(ii)

any cash paid or payable; or

 

(iii)

Common Stock or additional stock or other securities or property (including cash) by way of spinoff, split-up, reclassification, combination of shares or similar corporate rearrangement (other than shares of Common Stock pursuant to Section 6.1 above),

then, and in each such case, the Holder hereof will, upon the exercise of the Warrants, be entitled to receive, in addition to the number of shares of Series G Stock receivable thereupon, and without payment of any additional consideration therefor, the amount of stock and other securities and property (including cash in the cases referred to in clauses (ii) and (iii) above) which such Holder would hold on the date of such exercise had he or she been the holder of record of such Series G Stock as of the date on which holders of Series G Stock received or became entitled to receive such shares or all other additional stock and other securities and property.

6.3            Whenever the number of Warrant Shares purchasable upon the exercise of the Warrants or the Exercise Price of such Warrant Shares is adjusted, as herein provided, the Company shall mail to the Holder, at the address of the Holder shown on the books of the Company, a notice of such adjustment or adjustments, prepared and signed by the Chief Financial Officer, the Secretary or another authorized officer of the Company, which sets forth the number of Warrant Shares purchasable upon the exercise of each Warrant and the Exercise Price of such Warrant Shares after such adjustment, a brief statement of the facts requiring such adjustment and the computation by which such adjustment was made.

7.             Conversion

7.1            In lieu of exercise of any portion of the Warrants as provided in Section 2.1 hereof, the Warrants represented by this Warrant Certificate (or any portion thereof) may, at the election of the Holder, be converted into the nearest whole number of shares of Series G Stock equal to:  (1) the product of (a) the number of Warrants to be so converted, (b) the number of shares of Series G Stock then issuable upon the exercise of each Warrant and (c) the excess, if any, of (i) the Implied Series G Market Price Per Share (as determined pursuant to Section 8.2 hereof) with respect to the date of conversion minus (ii) the Exercise Price in effect on the business day next preceding the date of conversion, divided by (2) the Implied Series G Market Price Per Share with respect to the date of conversion.

7.2            The conversion rights provided under this Section 7 may be exercised in whole or in part and at any time and from time to time while any Warrants remain outstanding.  In order to exercise the conversion privilege, the Holder shall surrender to the Company, at its offices, this Warrant Certificate accompanied by a duly completed Notice of Conversion in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B.  The Warrants (or so many thereof as shall have been surrendered for conversion) shall be deemed to have been converted immediately prior to the close of business on the day of surrender of such Warrant Certificate for conversion in accordance with the foregoing provisions.  As promptly as practicable on or after the conversion date, the Company shall issue and shall deliver to the Holder (i) a certificate or certificates representing the number of shares of Series G Stock to which the Holder shall be entitled as a result of the conversion, and (ii) if the Warrant Certificate is being converted in part only, a new certificate in principal amount equal to the unconverted portion of the Warrant Certificate.

8.             Fractional Shares and Warrants; Determination of Market Price Per Share

8.1            Anything contained herein to the contrary notwithstanding, the Company shall not be required to issue any fraction of a share of Series G Stock in connection with the exercise of the Warrants.  The Warrants may not be exercised in such number as would result (except for the provisions of this paragraph) in the issuance of a fraction of a share of Series G Stock unless the Holder is exercising all the Warrants represented by this Warrant Certificate then owned by the Holder.  In such event, the Company shall, upon the exercise of the Warrants, issue to the Holder the largest aggregate whole number of shares of Series G Stock called for thereby upon receipt of the Exercise Price for all the Warrants represented by this Warrant Certificate and pay a sum in cash equal to the remaining fraction of a share of Common Stock multiplied by the Common Stock Market Price Per Share (as determined pursuant to Section 8.2 below) as of the last business day preceding the date on which the Warrants are presented for exercise.

8.2            As used herein, the “Implied Series G Market Price Per Share” with respect to any date shall mean one hundred (100) times the average closing price per share of Company's Common Stock for the ten (10) trading days immediately preceding such date during which the Common Stock has traded.  The closing price for each such day shall be the closing sale price or, in case no such sale takes place on such day, the closing price on the last trading day, in either case on the principal securities exchange on which the shares of Common Stock of the Company are listed or admitted to trading, the last sale price, or in case no sale takes place on any such day, the average of the high and low sales prices of the Common Stock on the Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board (“OTCBB”) or any comparable system, or if the Common Stock is not reported on OTCBB, or a comparable system, the average of the closing bid and asked prices as furnished by two members of the Financing Industry Regulatory Authority selected from time to time by the Company for that purpose.  If such bid and asked prices are not available, then “Implied Series G Market Price Per Share” shall be equal to the fair market value of the Company's Common Stock as determined in good faith by the board of directors of the Company.
