The Voting Convertible Preferred Stock are convertible into shares of Common Stock on a one for ten basis (i) at the option of an Investor upon delivery of a valid conversion notice to the Issuer or (ii) at the option of the Company within 30 days following the earlier to occur of (a) the date on which the volume-weighted average price of the Common Stock has been greater than or equal to $1.25 for 30 consecutive trading days and (b) the date on which the Company has reported two consecutive fiscal quarters of positive cash flow. The Voting Convertible Preferred Stock votes with the Common Stock on an as-converted to Common Stock basis. Each share of Voting Preferred Stock carries a liquidation preference, senior to the Common Stock and Nonvoting Preferred Stock, in an amount equal to the greater of (a) $2.00 (being the issuance price) and (b) the amount that would


be distributed in respect of such share of Voting Preferred Stock if it were converted into Common Stock and participated in such liquidating distribution with the other shares of Common Stock. Each share of Voting Preferred Stock is entitled to participate in dividends and other non-liquidating distributions (if , as and when declared by the Board of Directors of the Company) on an as-converted basis, pari passu with the Common Stock and Nonvoting Preferred Stock.

The Voting Convertible Preferred Stock votes with the Common Stock on an as-converted basis. Further, as long as any shares of Voting Convertible Preferred Stock are outstanding, the Company will not, without the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the then outstanding shares of the Voting Convertible Preferred Stock, (a) increase the authorized number of shares of Voting Convertible Preferred Stock; (b) enter any agreement, contract or understanding or otherwise incur any obligation which by its terms would violate or be in conflict in any material respect with, or significantly and adversely affect, the powers, rights or preferences of the Voting Convertible Preferred Stock designated hereunder; (c) amend the Certificate of Incorporation or By-laws of the Company, if such amendment would significantly and adversely alter, change or affect the powers, preferences or rights of the holders; or (d) amend or waive any provision of the Voting Convertible Preferred Certificate of Designations applicable to the holders or the Voting Convertible Preferred Stock.

The Stock Purchase Agreement includes representations, warranties, and covenants customary for a transaction of this type. In addition, the Issuer agreed to indemnify EWHP and EWHP-A from liabilities relating to a breach of any of the representations, warranties and covenants in the Stock Purchase Agreement.
