Amendments to Purchase Agreement.  Section 12 of the Purchase Agreement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety to read as follows:

12.

OWNERSHIP LIMITATION.  If at any time after the Closing, the Buyer shall or would receive shares of Common Stock in payment of interest or principal under the Note or upon conversion of the Note, so that the Buyer would, together with other shares of Common Stock held by it or its Affiliates, hold by virtue of such action or receipt of additional shares of Common Stock a number of shares exceeding the Maximum Percentage (as defined in the Note), the Company shall not be obligated and shall not issue to the Buyer shares of Common Stock which would exceed the Maximum Percentage, but only until such time as the Maximum Percentage would no longer be exceeded by any such receipt of shares of Common Stock by the Buyer. The foregoing limitations regarding the Maximum Percentage are enforceable, unconditional and non-waivable and shall apply to all Affiliates and assigns of the Buyer. Additionally, if at any time after the Closing the Company is no longer filing required reports under Sections 13 or 15 of the 1934 Act (either because the Company’s registration has been withdrawn or revoked, or because it is delinquent in its reporting obligations), , then from that point on, for so long as the Buyer or the Buyer’s Affiliate owns Common Stock or rights to acquire Common Stock, the Company shall post (or cause to be posted), no less frequently than every thirty (30) calendar days, the then-current number of issued and outstanding shares of its capital stock to the Company’s web page located at OTCmarkets.com (or such other web page approved by the Holder). The Company understands that its failure to so post its shares outstanding could result in economic loss to the Holder.  As compensation to the Holder for such loss, in addition to any other available remedies in the Transaction Documents or at law or in equity, the Company shall pay the Holder a late fee of $500.00 per calendar day for each calendar day that the Company fails to comply with the foregoing obligation to post its shares outstanding.  As elected by the Holder, the amount of any late fees incurred under this Section 12 shall either be automatically added to the principal balance of the Note (without the need to provide any notice to the Company) or otherwise paid by the Company in immediately available funds upon demand.


3.

Delivery of Pre-Installment Conversion Shares.  The Company issued 3,713,996 shares of Common Stock to Holder on or around October 10, 2012.  The Company and Holder agree that such Shares shall be deemed to be Pre-Installment Conversion Shares for the Initial Installment under the Note.

4.

Delivery of Shares.  The Company and Holder hereby acknowledge and agree that it is their intent that, except to the extent the Transaction Documents explicitly permit or require delivery of Common Stock via certificate (for example, pursuant to Section 3.3(a) or Section 8.4 of the Note), all Common Stock to be delivered to Holder under the Note, whether pursuant to Section 3, Section 8 or any other section of the Note, or under any of the other Transaction Documents, shall be transferred electronically via the DTC/Fast Program and DWAC system (“DWAC Delivery”) only.  Failure to do so shall constitute an Event of Default under the Note.  Consistent therewith, and for the avoidance of doubt, all provisions in the Transaction Documents that reference delivery of Common Stock via DTC or the DTC system, or the DTC Fast Automated Securities Transfer Program or the DWAC system, or any other electronic delivery or similar description, shall be deemed a reference to DWAC Delivery.  The Company and Holder hereby acknowledge and agree that all of the Transaction Documents are hereby amended as necessary to reflect the acknowledgments and agreements of the parties set forth in this paragraph.

5.

Continuing Agreement.  Except as modified in this Amendment, the provisions of the Note and the Purchase Agreement and all other Transaction Documents will remain unchanged and in full force and effect and govern this Amendment.  Any reference to the Note, Purchase Agreement or any other Transaction Document after the date of this Amendment shall be deemed a reference to the Note, Purchase Agreement or other Transaction Document, as applicable, as amended by this Amendment.  Except as expressly set forth herein, the execution, delivery, and performance of this Amendment shall not operate as a waiver of, or as an amendment to, any right, power, or remedy of Holder under the Note, the Purchase Agreement or any of the other Transaction Documents.

6.

Entire Agreement.  This Amendment and the Transaction Documents (as amended hereby) set forth the entire agreement and understanding of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede in their entirety all prior undertakings and agreements of the parties with respect thereto.  In the event of a conflict between this Amendment and any of the Transaction Documents, this Amendment shall control.

7.

Counterparts; Copies.  This Amendment may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be an original, but all of which together shall be deemed to constitute one instrument.  Facsimiles and copies of signatures will be deemed binding originals.
