Item 1.01 - Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On June 4, 2014, the Company filed a Current Report under the cover of a Form 8-K (the "Original 8-K") with the Commission to report its entry into an underwriting agreement on May 30, 2014 with the Underwriter as sole underwriter for the offer and sale in a firm commitment underwritten public offering of 5,391,304 shares (the "Firm Shares") of the Company's Common Stock at a price to the public of $0.530 per share ($0.493 per share, net of underwriting discounts) (the "Offering"). Pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, the Company also (i) granted to the Underwriter a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 808,696 shares of Common Stock to cover over-allotments, if any, at the same price (the "Overallotment Option" and such shares of Common Stock, the "Option Shares") and (ii) agreed to reimburse the Underwriter for certain of its out-of-pocket expenses.

On June 6, 2014, the Company filed a Current Report under the cover of a Form 8-K with the Commission to report the initial closing of the Offering pursuant to which the Company sold and the Underwriter Purchased the Firm Shares.

On June 10, 2014, the Underwriter notified the Company that it was exercising the Overalloment Option in full, and on June 12, 2014, the Company sold and the Underwriter Purchased the Option Shares. The net proceeds to the Company from selling the 808,696 Option Shares pursuant to the Overallotment Option, after underwriting discounts, are anticipated to be approximately $398,606. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to reduce its outstanding indebtedness and pay certain related fees.

The Offering was (i) made pursuant to a prospectus supplement dated May 30, 2014, and an accompanying prospectus dated May 5, 2014 pursuant to the Company's existing shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-195689), which was filed with the Commission on May 5, 2014 and declared effective by the Commission on May 12, 2014; and (ii) subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions for transactions of this nature including, but not limited to, NYSE MKT approval of the Company's additional listing application to list the Common Stock issued accordance with the Underwriting Agreement on NYSE MKT, which the Company received on June 5, 2014.
