Explanation of Responses:

* If the form is filed by more than one reporting person, see Instruction 4(b)(v).
** Intentional misstatements or omissions of facts constitute Federal Criminal Violations. See 18 U.S.C. 1001 and 15 U.S.C. 78ff(a).
(1) The issuer issued a promissory note (the "Note") to Mr. Shockey on November 4, 2014 to evidence his loan of $500,000, which Note was due on December 4, 2014. As consideration for defaulting on the Note and for Mr. Shockey agreeing to extend the Note, the issuer's Board of Directors authorized issuing the 400,000 warrants to Mr. Shockey on May 4, 2015.
(2) On June 30, 2015, the issuer issued 120,000 warrants to Mr. Shockey as consideration for agreeing to extend the Note to December 31, 2015. Under the terms of the extension, the warrants will be subject to a vesting schedule which will provide for 40,000 shares to vest on June 30, 2015, 40,000 shares to vest on September 30, 2015, and 40,000 shares to vest on December 31, 2015, provided that the warrants shall not vest if the Note has been repaid prior to the date of vesting. In the event that a portion of the Note is paid, then the number of warrants, which remain subject to vesting, will be reduced pro rata.

Note: File three copies of this Form, one of which must be manually signed. If space is insufficient, see Instruction 6 for procedure.
