NOW, THEREFORE, the parties enter into this Agreement based upon the terms and conditions set forth herein:


Convertible Bridge Loan Amount: The total amount of the Bridge Loan shall be __________ Thousand Dollars (USD$__,000.00).


Form and Funding Procedures of the Bridge Loan: Lender has provided the Bridge Loan to the Company as follows: _________ Thousand Dollars (USD$__,000.00) to the Company’s escrow agent: Michelman & Robinson, LLP, 114 West 47th Street, 24th Floor, New York NY 11217 (“Escrow Agent”) to be held in escrow and be disbursed to the Company upon Escrow Agent’s receipt of a fully executed copy of this Agreement.  Escrow Agent shall release funds by wire transfer to the Company in accordance with the instructions as set forth on Schedule A attached hereto.


Interest Rate: Interest shall accrue on the aggregate amount of the Bridge Loan from the Closing Date (defined herein) through the expiration of the Term (defined herein) of this Agreement at an annual rate of six percent (6%).


Closing Date: The parties agree that the closing date for this Agreement shall be on or around May 16, 2011 (the “Closing Date”).


Term: The term of this Agreement shall be December 31, 2011 (the “Term”), except if the Company closes on a Qualified Financing Round (defined herein) prior to the end of the Term, this Agreement will terminate and the Company shall convert the Bridge Loan into equity of the Company in accordance with Section 7 of this Agreement.


Repayment of Bridge Loan:

Unless the Bridge Loan is converted in accordance with this Agreement, principal and accrued interest will be paid in cash as computed utilizing an annual interest rate of six percent (6%). Lender will also receive a warrant to purchase up to twenty percent (20%) of the value of the principal amount of

the Bridge Loan at an exercise price equivalent to the per share price of the next Qualified Financing Round (as hereinafter defined).


The Company’s Conversion of Bridge Loan to Equity: The Company shall convert the Bridge Loan as follows:  the principal amount of the Bridge Loan shall be converted into the same equity that is issued pursuant to the next Qualified Financing Round, except that the conversion price of such debt shall be at a twenty five percent (25%) discount to either the lower of the equity price per share raised in such Qualified Financing Round or $0.50 per share of common stock, provided, however that the overall discount of the conversion price to the equity price per share raised in the Qualified Financing Round shall be not greater than 50%.  A “Qualified Financing Round” shall mean an equity financing of the Company during the Term which results in gross proceeds of not less than $2,000,000.  The Company currently contemplates the next Qualified Financing Round to be offered to prospective investors at $0.50 per share of common stock, based on the Company’s capitalization on the date hereof.  In the event that Company’s Option as described herein is exercised, interest on the Bridge Loan shall not accrue (and any accrued interest shall be deemed null and void ab initio) and the warrant contemplated to be issued to Lender shall be deemed cancelled.
