The Company is in compliance with all federal, state, local and foreign laws and regulations respecting employment and employment practices, terms and conditions of employment and wages and hours, except where failure to be in compliance would not, either individually or in the aggregate, result in a Material Adverse Effect.
Compliance. Except as disclosed in the SEC Reports, the Company (i) is not in default under or in violation of (and no event has occurred that has not been waived that, with notice or lapse of time or both, would result in a default by the Company or any Subsidiary under), nor has the Company received notice of a claim that it is in default under or that it is in violation of, any indenture, loan or credit agreement or any other agreement or instrument to which it is a party or by which it or any of its properties is bound (whether or not such default or violation has been waived), (ii) is not in violation of any order of any court, arbitrator or governmental body, or (iii) is not or has been in violation of any statute, rule or regulation of any governmental authority, including without limitation all foreign, federal, state and local laws applicable to its business, except in the case of clauses (i), (ii) and (iii) as would not have or reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect.

Certain Fees. No brokerage or finders fees or commissions are or will be payable by the Company to any broker, financial advisor or consultant, finder, placement agent, investment banker, bank or other Person with respect to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. The Purchasers shall have no obligation with respect to any fees or with respect to any claims made by or on behalf of other Persons for fees of a type contemplated in this Section that may be due in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.
Private Placement. Assuming the accuracy of the Purchasers representations and warranties set forth in Section 3.2 and assuming no unlawful distribution of the Securities by the Purchasers, no registration under the Securities Act is required for the offer and sale of the Securities by the Company to the Purchasers as contemplated hereby. The issuance and sale of the Securities hereunder does not contravene the rules and regulations of the American Stock Exchange. Neither the Company nor any Person acting on the Companys behalf has sold or offered to sell or solicited any offer to buy the Securities by means of any form of general solicitation or advertising. The Company has offered the Shares for sale only to the Purchasers.
Registration Rights. Except as described in the SEC Reports and the Purchasers, no Person has any right to cause the Company to effect the registration under the Securities Act of any securities of the Company.
Listing and Maintenance Requirements. The Companys Common Stock is registered pursuant to Section 12(b) of the Exchange Act and according to the listing standards on the American Stock Exchange (AMEX). On April 25, 2007, the Company received notification from AMEX that we were not in compliance with AMEXs continued listing requirements because our shareholders equity is less than $2,000,000 and we have experienced losses from continuing operations and/or net losses in two of our most recent fiscal years. On May 1, 2007, we notified AMEX that as a result of the resignation of one of our independent director from our Board of Directors, we were aware that we were no longer in compliance with certain of the AMEXs continued listing standards for Small Business Issuers regarding having at least fifty percent of its Board be comprised of independent directors and maintaining an audit committee of at least two independent directors. On May 3, 2007 we received a Warning Letter from AMEX regarding the aforementioned noncompliance. We submitted a plan on May 24, 2007 to AMEX for regaining compliance with all of the continued listing standards, which included a newly appointed director to the Companys Board of Directors. On July 2, 2007, AMEX completed its review and has determined that the plan makes a reasonable demonstration of the Companys ability to regain compliance with the continued listing standards by the end of the plan period, October 27, 2008 and is therefore continuing the Companys listing pursuant to an extension.
Disclosure. All disclosure provided to the Purchasers regarding the Company, its business and the transactions contemplated hereby, including the Disclosure Schedules to this Agreement, furnished by or on behalf of the Company are true and correct and do not contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact necessary in order to make the statements made therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading. No event or circumstance has occurred or information exists with respect to the Company or its business, properties, prospects, operations or condition (financial or otherwise), which, under applicable law, rule or regulation, requires public disclosure or announcement by the Company but which has not been so publicly announced or disclosed.
Taxes. Except for matters that would not, individually or in the aggregate, have or reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect, the Company has filed all necessary federal, state and foreign income and franchise tax returns and has paid or accrued all taxes shown as due thereon, and the Company has no knowledge of a tax deficiency which has been asserted or threatened against the Company.
Each Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that the Company does not make or has not made any representations or warranties with respect to the transactions contemplated hereby other than those specifically set forth in this Section 3.1.

Governing Law.

Independent Nature of Purchasers Obligations and Rights. The obligations of each Purchaser under any Transaction Document are several and not joint with the obligations of any other Purchaser, and no Purchaser shall be responsible in any way for the performance of the obligations of any other Purchaser under any Transaction Document. The decision of each Purchaser to purchase Securities pursuant to this Agreement has been made by such Purchaser independently of any other Purchaser and independently of any information, materials, statements or opinions as to the business, affairs, operations, assets, properties, liabilities, results of operations, condition (financial or otherwise) or prospects of the Company or of the Subsidiary which may have been made or given by any other Purchaser or by any agent or employee of any other Purchaser, and no Purchaser or any of its agents or employees shall have any liability to any other Purchaser (or any other person) relating to or arising from any such information, materials, statements or opinions. Nothing contained herein or in any Transaction Document, and no action taken by any Purchaser pursuant thereto, shall be deemed to constitute the Purchasers as a partnership, an association, a joint venture or any other kind of entity, or create a presumption that the Purchasers are in any way acting in concert or as a group with respect to such obligations or the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Document. Each Purchaser acknowledges that no other Purchaser has acted as agent for such Purchaser in connection with making its investment hereunder and that no other Purchaser will be acting as agent of such Purchaser in connection with monitoring its investment hereunder. Each Purchaser shall be entitled to independently protect and enforce its rights, including without limitation the rights arising out of this Agreement or out of the other Transaction Documents, and it shall not be necessary for any other Purchaser to be joined as an additional party in any proceeding for such purpose. Each Purchaser has been represented by its own separate legal counsel in their review and negotiation of the Transaction Documents.
Construction. The headings herein are for convenience only, do not constitute a part of this Agreement and shall not be deemed to limit or affect any of the provisions hereof. The parties agree that each of them and/or their respective counsel has reviewed and had an opportunity to revise the Transaction Documents and, therefore, the normal rule of construction to the effect that any ambiguities are to be resolved against the drafting party shall not be employed in the interpretation of the Transaction Documents or any amendments hereto.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have caused this Securities Purchase Agreement to be duly executed by their respective authorized signatories as of the date first indicated above.

The number of Warrant Shares is subject to adjustment as hereinafter provided. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, this Warrant shall expire and no longer be exercisable at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST) on August , 2008, one (1) year from the closing at which issued (the Termination Date).

Upon any partial exercise of this Warrant, there shall be executed and issued to the Holder a new Warrant in respect of the shares of Common Stock as to which this Warrant shall not have been exercised. In the event of the exercise of the rights represented by this Warrant, a certificate or certificates for the Warrant Shares so purchased, as applicable, registered in the name of the Holder, shall be delivered to the Holder hereof as soon as practicable after the rights represented by this Warrant shall have been so exercised.
(b) If, but only if, at any time after one year from the date of issuance of this Warrant there is no effective registration statement registering the resale of the Common Stock underlying this Warrant by the Holder, this Warrant may also be exercised at such time by means of a cashless exercise in which, at any time prior to the Termination Date, the Holder of this Warrant may, at its option, exchange this Warrant, in whole or in part (a Warrant Exchange), into Warrant Shares by surrendering this Warrant at the principal office of the Corporation, accompanied by a notice stating such Holders intent to effect such exchange, the number of Warrant Shares to be exchanged and the date on which the Holder requests that such Warrant Exchange occur (the Notice of Exchange). The Warrant Exchange
shall take place on the date specified in the Notice of Exchange or, if later, within five (5) days of the date the Notice of Exchange is received by the Corporation (the Exchange Date). Certificates for the Warrant Shares issuable upon such Warrant Exchange and, if applicable, a new Warrant of like tenor evidencing the balance of the Warrant Shares remaining subject to this Warrant, shall be issued as of the Exchange Date and delivered to the Holder within three (3) business days following the Exchange Date. In connection with any Warrant Exchange, this Warrant shall represent the right to subscribe for and acquire the number of Warrant Shares (rounded to the next highest integer) equal to the quotient obtained by dividing [(A-B) (X)] by (A), where:
|(A) =||the Closing Bid Price (as hereinafter defined) on the trading day preceding the date on which the Company receives the Exercise Documentation;|
|(B) =||the exercise price of this Warrant, as adjusted; and|
|(X) =||the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of this Warrant in accordance with the terms of this Warrant.|
2. Reservation of Warrant Shares. The Corporation agrees that, prior to the expiration of this Warrant, it will at all times have authorized and in reserve, and will keep available, solely for issuance or delivery upon the exercise of this Warrant, the number of Warrant Shares as from time to time shall be issuable by the Corporation upon the exercise of this Warrant.
3. No Shareholder Rights. This Warrant shall not entitle the holder hereof to any voting rights or other rights as a shareholder of the Corporation.
4. Transferability of Warrant. Prior to the Termination Date and subject to compliance with applicable laws, this Warrant and all rights hereunder are transferable, in whole or in part, at the office or agency of the Company by the Holder in person or by duly authorized attorney, upon surrender of this Warrant together with the Assignment Form annexed hereto properly endorsed for transfer.
5. Certain Adjustments. With respect to any rights that Holder has to exercise this Warrant and convert into shares of Common Stock, Holder shall be entitled to the following adjustments:
(a) Merger or Consolidation. If at any time there shall be a merger or a consolidation of the Corporation with or into another corporation when the Corporation is not the surviving corporation, then, as part of such merger or consolidation, lawful provision shall be made so that the holder hereof shall thereafter be entitled to receive upon exercise of this Warrant, during the period specified herein and upon payment of the aggregate Warrant Price then in effect, the number of shares of stock or other securities or property (including cash) of the successor corporation resulting from such merger or consolidation, to which the holder hereof as the holder of the stock deliverable upon exercise of this Warrant would have been entitled in such merger or consolidation if this Warrant had been exercised immediately before such merger or consolidation. In any such case, appropriate adjustment shall be made in the application of the provisions of this Warrant with respect to the rights and interests of the holder hereof as the holder of this Warrant after the merger or consolidation.
(b) Reclassification. Recapitalization, etc. If the Corporation at any time shall, by subdivision, combination or reclassification of securities, recapitalization, automatic conversion, or other similar event affecting the number or character of outstanding shares of Common Stock, or otherwise, change any of the securities as to which purchase rights under this Warrant exist into the same or a different number of securities of any other class or classes, this Warrant shall thereafter represent the right to acquire such number and kind of securities as would have been issuable as the result of such change with respect to the securities that were subject to the purchase rights under this Warrant immediately prior to such subdivision, combination, reclassification or other change.
(c) Split or Combination of Common Stock and Stock Dividend. In case the Corporation shall at any time subdivide, redivide, recapitalize, split (forward or reverse) or change its outstanding shares of Common Stock into a greater number of shares or declare a dividend upon its Common Stock payable solely in shares of Common Stock, the Warrant Price shall be proportionately reduced and the number of Warrant Shares proportionately increased.
Conversely, in case the outstanding shares of Common Stock of the Corporation shall be combined into a smaller number of shares, the Warrant Price shall be proportionately increased and the number of Warrant Shares proportionately reduced. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event will the Warrant Price be reduced below the par value of the Common Stock.
6. Legend and Stop Transfer Orders. Unless the Warrant Shares have been registered under the Securities Act, upon exercise of any part of the Warrant, the Corporation shall instruct its transfer agent to enter stop transfer orders with respect to such Warrant Shares, and all certificates or instruments representing the Warrant Shares shall bear on the face thereof substantially the following legend:
THE SECURITIES EVIDENCED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE U.S. SECURITIES ACT, AS AMENDED, OR ANY OTHER APPLICABLE SECURITIES LAWS AND HAVE BEEN ISSUED IN RELIANCE UPON AN EXEMPTION FROM THE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS OF THE SECURITIES ACT AND SUCH OTHER SECURITIES LAWS. NEITHER THIS SECURITY NOR ANY INTEREST OR PARTICIPATION HEREIN MAY BE SOLD, ASSIGNED, TRANSFERRED, PLEDGED, ENCUMBERED, OR OTHERWISE DISPOSED OF, EXCEPT PURSUANT TO AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OR AN OPINION OF COUNSEL REASONABLY SATISFACTORY TO THE CORPORATION THAT SUCH REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED PURSUANT TO A VALID EXEMPTION THEREFROM UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT.
7. Redemption. On August 8, 2008, this Warrant shall expire and not longer be exercisable at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST) which is one (1) from the closing at which issued known as the Termination Date.
8. Miscellaneous. This Warrant shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida. All the covenants and provisions of this Warrant by or for the benefit of the Corporation shall bind and inure to the benefit of its successors and assigns hereunder. Nothing in this Warrant shall be construed to give to any person or corporation other than the Corporation and the holder of this Warrant any legal or equitable right, remedy or claim under this Warrant. This Warrant shall be for the sole and exclusive benefit of the Corporation and the holder of this Warrant. The section headings herein are for convenience only and are not part of this Warrant and shall not affect the interpretation hereof. Upon receipt of evidence satisfactory to the Corporation of the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of this Warrant, and of indemnity reasonably satisfactory to the Corporation, if lost, stolen or destroyed, and upon surrender and cancellation of this Warrant, if mutilated, the Corporation shall execute and deliver to the Holder a new Warrant of like date, tenor and denomination.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Corporation has caused this Warrant to be executed by its duly authorized officers under its seal, this day of August, 2007.
