3


following calendar month equals or exceeds the applicable Target Net Working Capital and (y) on one occasion during the period from June 2012 through November 2012, the Net Working Capital of the Company as of the end of a calendar month during such period is lower than the applicable Target Net Working Capital by no more than $1,000,000, so long as the Net Working Capital of the Company as of the end of the following calendar month equals or exceeds the applicable Target Net Working Capital, or (E) the Net Working Capital Ratio is less than 0.80 as of the end of any calendar month, commencing April 2013; provided, however, that the foregoing events shall not be Triggering Events to the extent they occur prior to the earlier of (x) April 1, 2012 or (y) the effective date of a registration statement filed by the Company with respect to the Company’s common stock under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (such earlier date, the “Trigger Effective Date”).
