(the “Company”), Coliseum Capital Partners, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership, Coliseum Capital Partners II, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership and Blackwell Partners, LLC Series A, a Georgia limited liability company (each a “Stockholder” and collectively, the “Stockholders”).  Capitalized but otherwise undefined terms herein have the meanings given to them in the Registration Rights Agreement (as defined below).


WHEREAS, the Company and the Stockholders are party to that certain Registration Rights Agreement, dated March 9, 2015 (the “Registration Rights Agreement”), governing the Company’s obligations to register Registrable Securities of the Stockholders; and


WHEREAS, in connection with entering into that certain Exchange Agreement, dated as of the date hereof, by and between the Company and the Stockholders pursuant to which the Company will issue shares of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock of the Company in exchange for shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock of the Company, the Company and the Stockholders desire to amend the Registration Rights Agreement pursuant to Section 11(c) thereof and upon such terms as set forth herein.


NOW, THEREFORE, for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties agree as follows:


1. Amendments to Registration Rights Agreement.


  a. A new definition shall be added to Section 10 of the Registration Rights Agreement to read:


““Preferred Stock” means any shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock of the Company, $0.0001 par value per share, or any shares of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock, $0.0001 par value per share.”


  b. The definition of Registrable Securities in Section 10 of the Registration Rights Agreement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety to read as follows:


““Registrable Securities” means the Common Stock that has been or will be issued upon conversion of any Preferred Stock or the exercise of the Warrant, together with any securities issued or issuable upon any stock split, dividend or other distribution, recapitalization or similar event with respect to the foregoing. For purposes of this Agreement, a Person shall be deemed to be a holder of Registrable Securities whenever such Person has the right to acquire such Registrable Securities (upon conversion or exercise, in connection with a transfer of securities or otherwise, but disregarding any restrictions or limitations upon the exercise of such right), whether or not such acquisition has actually been effected. As to any particular Registrable Securities, such securities shall cease to be Registrable Securities when (A) a Registration Statement covering such securities has been declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission and such securities have been disposed of pursuant to such effective Registration Statement, (B) such securities are sold under circumstances in which all of the applicable conditions of Rule 144 (or any similar provisions then in force) under the Securities Act are met, (C) such securities are eligible for sale by the Holder without registration pursuant to Rule 144 (or any similar provisions then in force) under the Securities Act without limitation thereunder on volume or manner of sale, (D) such securities are otherwise transferred and such securities may be resold without limitation or subsequent registration under the Securities Act, (E) such securities shall have ceased to be outstanding, or (F) the stock certificates or evidences of book-entry registration relating to such securities have had all restrictive legends removed.”





2. Confirmation. Except as expressly modified by the terms and provisions of this Amendment, all of the terms and provisions of the Registration Rights Agreement are unchanged and continue in full force and effect and all rights, remedies, liabilities and obligations evidenced by the Registration Rights Agreement are hereby acknowledged by the Company and the Stockholders to be valid and in full force and effect.


3. Counterparts. This Amendment may be executed in any number of counterparts, by facsimile if necessary, each of which shall be an original, but all of which together shall constitute one instrument.


4. Governing Law. This Amendment shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of New York applicable to parties residing in New York, without regard applicable principles of conflicts of law. Each party irrevocably consents to the exclusive jurisdiction of any court located within New York County, New York, in connection with any matter based upon or arising out of this Amendment or the matters contemplated hereby and it agrees that process may be served upon it in any manner authorized by the laws of the State of New York for such persons and waives and covenants not to assert or plead any objection which it might otherwise have to such jurisdiction and such process.
