(2)  The option grant was approved by a committee of the Issuer's Board of Directors on February 21, 2017, subject to shareholder approval of an amendment to the Issuer's 2016 Equity Incentive Plan to increase the maximum number of shares that may be granted to any one participant during a one-year period to 500,000. The Issuer's shareholders approved the amendment on June 15, 2017. The option vests in 36 monthly installments beginning March 21, 2017, except that all vesting attributable to periods prior to June 15, 2017 is deemed to have occurred on June 15, 2017.
(3)  Each share of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock has no expiration date and is convertible into 500 shares of the Issuer's common stock following the date that shareholders approve such conversion, which approval was obtained on June 15, 2017.
