On August 10, 2016, the Company entered into an Option Agreement (the “Option Agreement”) with Aspire Capital, pursuant to which Aspire Capital granted to the Company the right at any time or times prior to December 31, 2019 to require Aspire Capital to enter into up to two common stock purchase agreements, each having a term of up to 36 months and collectively requiring Aspire Capital to purchase up to $20 million in the aggregate of the Company’s common stock (or such lesser amount as the Company may determine) on an ongoing basis when required by the Company.

The warrants have an exercise price of $0.01 per share, which amount is subject to customary anti-dilution and other adjustments. The warrants are exercisable upon issuance and will expire five years after issuance.
