Stock outstanding as of February 14, 2017 as reported by the Issuer, plus (2) 2,173,913 shares of Common Stock that were to be issued to Intracoastal at the closing of the transaction contemplated by the SPA and (3) 1,496,633 shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of Intracoastal Warrant 1. The foregoing excludes: (I) 133,802 shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of Intracoastal Warrant 1 because Intracoastal Warrant 1 contains a blocker provision under which the holder thereof does not have the right to exercise Intracoastal Warrant 1 to the extent that such exercise would result in beneficial ownership by the holder thereof, together with any persons whose beneficial ownership of the Common Stock would or could be aggregated with such holder’s for purposes of Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, of more than 4.99% of the Common Stock, (II) 1,428,572 shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of a second warrant held by Intracoastal (“ Intracoastal Warrant 2 ”) because Intracoastal Warrant 2 is not exercisable until June 24, 2017 (and Intracoastal Warrant 2 contains a blocker provision under which the holder thereof does not have the right to exercise Intracoastal Warrant 1 to the extent that such exercise would result in beneficial ownership by the holder thereof, together with any persons whose beneficial ownership of the Common Stock would or could be aggregated with such holder’s for purposes of Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, of more than 9.99% of the Common Stock), and (III) 497,768 shares of Common Stock in the aggregate issuable upon exercise of other warrants held by Intracoastal (the “ Other Intracoastal Warrants ”) because each of the Other Intracoastal Warrants contains a blocker provision under which the holder thereof does not have the right to exercise such Other Intracoastal Warrant to the extent that such exercise would result in beneficial ownership by the holder thereof, together with any persons whose beneficial ownership of the Common Stock would or could be aggregated with such holder’s for purposes of Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, of more than 4.99% of the Common Stock. Without such blocker provisions (and assuming Intracoastal Warrant 2 was currently exercisable), each of the Reporting Persons may have been deemed to have beneficial ownership of 5,730,688 shares of Common Stock.

(ii) As of the close of business on February 21, 2017, each of the Reporting Persons may be deemed to have beneficial ownership of 2,164,799 shares of Common Stock, which consisted of (i) 36,596 shares of Common Stock held by Intracoastal, (ii) 1,630,435 shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercised of Intracoastal Warrant 1 and (iii) 497,768 shares of Common Stock in the aggregate issuable upon exercise of the Other Intracoastal Warrant, and all such shares of Common Stock in the aggregate represent beneficial ownership of approximately 4.0% of the Common Stock, based on (1) 33,071,657 shares of Common Stock outstanding as of February 14, 2017 as reported by the Issuer, plus (2) 19,385,869 shares of Common Stock issued at the closing of the transaction contemplated by the SPA as reported by the Issuer, (3) 1,630,435 shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercised of Intracoastal Warrant 1 and (4) 497,768 shares of Common Stock in the aggregate issuable upon exercise of the Other Intracoastal Warrants. The foregoing excludes 1,428,572 shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of Intracoastal Warrant 2 because Intracoastal Warrant 2 is not exercisable until June 24, 2017. Assuming Intracoastal Warrant 2 was currently exercisable, each of the Reporting Persons may have been deemed to have beneficial ownership of 3,593,371 shares of Common Stock.
