Exhibit A

INDEMNIFICATION PROVISIONS

Capitalized terms used in this Exhibit shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Agreement to which this Exhibit is attached.

The Company agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Maxim and each of the other Indemnified Parties (as hereinafter defined) from and against any and all losses, claims, damages, obligations, penalties, judgments, awards, liabilities, costs, expenses and disbursements, and any and all actions, suits, proceedings and investigations in respect thereof and any and all legal and other costs, expenses and disbursements in giving testimony or furnishing documents in response to a subpoena or otherwise (including, without limitation, the costs, expenses and disbursements, as and when incurred, of investigating, preparing, pursing or defending any such action, suit, proceeding or investigation (whether or not in connection with litigation in which any Indemnified Party is a party)) (collectively, “Losses”), directly or indirectly, caused by, relating to, based upon, arising out of, or in connection with, Maxim’s acting for the Company, including, without limitation, any act or omission by Maxim in connection with its acceptance of or the performance or non-performance of its obligations under the Agreement between the Company and Maxim to which these indemnification provisions are attached and form a part (the “Agreement”), any breach by the Company of any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement contained in the Agreement (or in any instrument, document or agreement relating thereto, including any Agency Agreement), or the enforcement by Maxim of its rights under the Agreement or these indemnification provisions, except to the extent that any such Losses are found in a final judgment by a court of competent jurisdiction (not subject to further appeal) to have resulted primarily and directly from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Indemnified Party seeking indemnification hereunder. The Company also agrees that no Indemnified Party shall have any liability (whether direct or indirect, in contract or tort or otherwise) to the Company for or in connection with the engagement of Maxim by the Company or for any other reason, except to the extent that any such liability is found in a final judgment by a court of competent jurisdiction (not subject to further appeal) to have resulted primarily and directly from such Indemnified Party’s gross negligence or willful misconduct.

These Indemnification Provisions shall extend to the following persons (collectively, the “Indemnified Parties”): Maxim, its present and former affiliated entities, managers, members, officers, employees, legal counsel, agents and controlling persons (within the meaning of the federal securities laws), and the officers, directors, partners, stockholders, members, managers, employees, legal counsel, agents and controlling persons of any of them. These indemnification provisions shall be in addition to any liability which the Company may otherwise have to any Indemnified Party.

If any action, suit, proceeding or investigation is commenced, as to which an Indemnified Party proposes to demand indemnification, it shall notify the Company with reasonable promptness; provided, however, that any failure by an Indemnified Party to notify the Company shall not relieve the Company from its obligations hereunder. An Indemnified Party shall have the right to retain counsel of its own choice to represent it, and the fees, expenses and disbursements of such counsel shall be borne by the Company. Any such counsel shall, to the extent consistent with its professional responsibilities, cooperate with the Company and any counsel designated by the Company. The Company shall be liable for any settlement of any claim against any Indemnified Party made with the Company’s written consent. The Company shall not, without the prior written consent of Maxim, settle or compromise any claim, or permit a default or consent to the entry of any judgment in respect thereof, unless such settlement, compromise or consent (i) includes, as an unconditional term thereof, the giving by the claimant to all of the Indemnified Parties of an unconditional release from all liability in respect of such claim, and (ii) does not contain any factual or legal admission by or with respect to an Indemnified Party or an adverse statement with respect to the character, professionalism, expertise or reputation of any Indemnified Party or any action or inaction of any Indemnified Party.

In order to provide for just and equitable contribution, if a claim for indemnification pursuant to these indemnification provisions is made but it is found in a final judgment by a court of competent jurisdiction (not subject to further appeal) that such indemnification may not be enforced in such case, even though the express provisions hereof provide for indemnification in such case, then the Company shall contribute to the Losses to which any Indemnified Party may be subject (i) in accordance with the relative benefits received by the Company and its stockholders, subsidiaries and affiliates, on the one hand, and the Indemnified Party, on the other hand, and (ii) if (and only if) the allocation provided in clause (i) of this sentence is not permitted by applicable law, in such proportion as to reflect not only the relative benefits, but also the relative fault of the Company, on the one hand, and the Indemnified Party, on the other hand, in connection with the statements, acts or omissions which resulted in such Losses as well as any relevant equitable considerations. No person found liable for a fraudulent misrepresentation shall be entitled to contribution from any person who is not also found liable for fraudulent misrepresentation. The relative benefits received (or anticipated to be received) by the Company and it stockholders, subsidiaries and affiliates shall be deemed to be equal to the aggregate consideration payable or receivable by such parties in connection with the transaction or transactions to which the Agreement relates relative to the amount of fees actually received by Maxim in connection with such transaction or transactions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event shall the amount contributed by all Indemnified Parties exceed the amount of fees previously received by Maxim pursuant to the Agreement.

Neither termination nor completion of the Agreement shall affect these Indemnification Provisions which shall remain operative and in full force and effect. The Indemnification Provisions shall be binding upon the Company and its successors and assigns and shall inure to the benefit of the Indemnified Parties and their respective successors, assigns, heirs and personal representatives.

Exhibit B

FEE SCHEDULE

Capitalized terms used in this Exhibit shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Agreement to which this Exhibit is attached.

 

  1. For any Financing, the Company shall:

 

  (i) pay Maxim a cash fee of 8% of the amount of capital raised, invested or committed; and

 

  (ii) pay Maxim a cash fee for unallocated expenses of 1% of the amount of capital raised, invested or committed; and

 

  (iii) deliver a warrant to Maxim (the “Agent Warrant”) to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Common Stock”) equal to nine percent (9%) of the number of shares of Common Stock underlying the securities issued in the Financing. Such Agent Warrant will be issued at each Closing and shall provide, among other things, that the Agent Warrant shall (i) be exercisable at an exercise price of 110% to the price of the securities (or the exercise price of the securities) issued to the investors in the Financing, (ii) expire five (5) years from the date of issuance, (iii) contain standard anti-dilution protection and such other anti-dilution protection provided to the investors in the Financing, (iv) include customary registration rights, including the registration rights provided to the investors, (v) contain provisions for cashless exercise and (vi) include such other terms as are normal and customary for warrants of this type.

 

  2. Transaction Fees:

The Transaction Fees shall be payable to Maxim in cash at the closing or closings of the Transaction to which it relates and shall be equal to 3% of Transaction consideration and defined below. The amount of consideration paid in a Transaction shall include, for purposes of calculating such fee, all forms of consideration paid or received, directly or indirectly, by the Company and/or its stockholders in such Transaction, including, without limitation, cash, securities, notes or other evidences of indebtedness, assumption of liabilities (whether by operation of law or otherwise), or any combination thereof. If all or portion of the consideration paid in the Transaction is other than cash or securities, then the value of such non-cash consideration shall be the fair market value thereof on the date the Transaction is consummated as mutually agreed upon in good faith by the Company and Maxim. If such non-cash consideration consists of common stock, options, warrants or rights for which a public trading market existed prior to the consummation for the Transaction, then the value of such securities shall be determined based upon the closing or last sales price thereof on the date of the consummation of the Transaction. If such non-cash consideration consists of newly-issued, publicly-traded common stock, options, warrants or rights for which no public trading market existed prior to the consummation of the Transaction, then the value thereof shall be the average of the closing prices for the 20 trading days subsequent to the fifth trading day after the consummation of the Transaction. In such event, the fee payable to Maxim pursuant to this Section 3 shall be paid on the 30th trading day subsequent to consummation of the Transaction. If no public market exists for the common stock, options, warrants or other rights issued in the Transaction, then the value thereof shall be as mutually agreed upon in good faith by the Company and Maxim. If the non-cash consideration paid in the Transaction consists of preferred stock or debt securities (regardless of whether a public trading market existed for such preferred stock or debt securities prior to consummation of the Transaction or exists thereafter), the value thereof shall be the maximum liquidation value (without regard to

accrued dividends) of the preferred stock or the principal amount of the debt securities, as the case may be. Any amounts payable by a purchaser to the Company, any stockholder of the Company or an affiliate of either the Company or any stockholder of the Company in connection with a non-competition, employment, consulting, licensing, supply or other agreement (or payable by the Company if the Company is the acquiring entity) shall be deemed to be part of the consideration paid in the Transaction. If all or a portion of the consideration payable in connection with the Transaction includes contingent future payments, then the Company shall pay to Maxim an additional cash fee, determined in accordance with this Section 3, as, when and if such contingency payments are received. However, in the event of an installment purchase at a fixed price and fixed time schedule, the Company agrees to pay Maxim, upon consummation of such Transaction, an additional cash fee, determined in accordance with this Section 3 based upon the present value of such installment payments using a discount rate of 10%. If with respect to any non-cash consideration the Company and Maxim are unable to agree on the fair market value thereof, then such value shall be determined by submission of the question to a reputable appraisal firm with experience valuing property of the nature of the subject consideration acceptable to the Company and Maxim (the fees and expenses of whom shall be borne equally by the Company and Maxim).
