On January 27, 2014, the Company entered into an Employment Agreement (the “Employment Agreement”) with Mr. Linos, in connection with his appointment as the Company’s Executive Vice President Sales. As President of the Company, Mr. Linos will continue to serve under the terms of the Employment Agreement dated January 27, 2014 (filed as Exhibit 10.01 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on January 31, 2014).
