Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company may offer and sell shares of its common stock having an aggregate value of up to $8,500,000 from time to time. Any shares sold will be issued pursuant to the Company's existing effective shelf Registration Statement on Form S-3 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on September 25, 2012, as updated by a prospectus supplement.
Ascendiant will act as the Company's agent to sell the shares offered, solely as instructed by the Company, and is not required to sell any specific number or dollar amount of shares.
