Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

(e)

In connection with the proposed Dissolution, on November 9, 2012, the Board, based on the recommendation of the Compensation Committee and subject to shareholder approval of the Dissolution, approved modifications of certain equity awards held by Andrea Kendell, the Company's Chief Financial Officer, as well as compensation arrangements with Ms. Kendell following the Dissolution in order to incentivize her to continue her services with the Company during the Dissolution process, the material terms of which are summarized below.

Treatment of Equity Awards

Restricted Stock Units: The following restricted stock units ("RSUs") shall vest immediately prior to the effectiveness of the Dissolution:

20,000 RSUs granted on July 2, 2012 scheduled to vest on November 1, 2013; and

4,310 RSUs granted on September 24, 2010 scheduled to vest as to 2,155 shares on each of September 25, 2013 and September 25, 2014.

Stock Options: The stock options set forth below shall convert on the day prior to the Dissolution into such number of RSUs that equals the quotient of (A) the aggregate intrinsic value (as hereinafter defined) of such options divided by (B) the Fair Market Value (as defined in the Company's 2009 Employee, Director and Consultant Equity Incentive Plan, as amended) of the Company's common stock on the date of issuance of the RSUs, which RSUs will vest immediately prior to the effectiveness of the Dissolution. For each option the intrinsic value per share will be calculated by subtracting the exercise price of such option from the sum of the estimated per share initial liquidating distribution amount to be paid to shareholders after the Dissolution plus the estimated per share additional liquidating distribution amounts to be paid to shareholders after the Dissolution each as estimated by the Company on the day prior to the Dissolution (provided that if the exercise price of such option is greater than the sum of these amounts, the intrinsic value of such option shall be $0).

60,000 options with an exercise price of $2.65 per share granted on July 2, 2012 which vest quarterly as to 10,000 shares through November 1, 2013; and

80,000 of the 160,000 options granted on September 22, 2011 with an exercise price of $2.75 per share, 40,000 of which are vested and 40,000 of which vest on September 22, 2013.

Ms. Kendell will continue as the Company's Chief Financial Officer on a full time basis compensated at her current salary through February 28, 2013 (the "Employment Term").

If Ms. Kendell's employment is terminated by the Company without cause prior to the expiration of the Employment Term or if Ms. Kendell is then still employed she will be terminated as of the end of the Employment Term and she will receive conditioned upon her execution of a release of claims:
