The Joint Lead Agents arranged for each subscriber under the first tranche of the Private Placement to purchase from certain selling shareholders, one common share at a price of $0.16 per share, for every two shares acquired under the Private Placement Due to administrative complexities the purchasers under the second tranche of the Private Placement were unable to participate in the Secondary Offering and as a result the Company agreed to reduce the subscription price of one-third of the shares purchased under the second tranche from $0.18 per share to $0.16 per share so that the average purchase price for the shares purchased under the second tranche was the same as if such purchasers had participated in the Secondary Offering.
