“(b) If the Company at any time after the date hereof through the Warrant Expiration Date issues or sells any stock or other security (other than warrants or options to subscribe for or purchase shares of Common Stock or Preferred Stock granted to employees or consultants to the Company or securities issued by the Company in connection with an initial public offering of Common Stock) that is at any time and under any circumstances, directly or indirectly convertible into, exercisable or exchangeable for, or which otherwise entitles the holder thereof to acquire any shares of Common Stock or Preferred Stock (the “Convertible Securities”), for a consideration per share less than the Stated Purchase Price then in effect or for which the Convertible Securities have a conversion rate of less than the Stated Purchase Price then in effect, then the Stated Purchase Price in effect immediately prior to such issuance or sale will be reduced, concurrently with such issue, to the consideration per share received by the Company for such issuance or sale.”
