In connection with the Purchase Agreement, on August 28, 2013, the Company and the Purchasers entered into a Registration Rights Agreement. Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company has agreed to use its commercially reasonable efforts to (i) file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") as soon as practicable but in no event later than 45 days of the date of the Closing, a registration statement covering the resale of all Shares and (ii) have the registration statement be declared effective under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), as soon as practicable but in no event later than the 90 days or if there is a review of the registration statement by the SEC, 120 days after the date of the Closing. In the event that

The description of the Purchase Agreement and the Registration Rights Agreement are summaries and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the copies of the Purchase Agreement attached as hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and the Registration Rights Agreement attached hereto as Exhibit 10.2, each of which is incorporated herein by reference.
