Brinson Patrick will use commercially reasonable efforts consistent with its normal trading and sales practices to sell the shares in accordance with the terms of the Sales Agreement and any applicable placement notice. The Company cannot provide any assurances that it will issue any shares pursuant to the Sales Agreement.

The Company will pay Brinson Patrick a commission equal to up to 3% of the gross proceeds from the sale of shares of the Company's common stock under the Sales Agreement, if any. Pursuant to the terms of the Sales Agreement, the Company also provided Brinson Patrick with customary indemnification rights.
