To the extent we issue additional equity securities or such options or warrants are exercised, the holders
of our common stock will experience further dilution. The exercise of the outstanding derivative securities will reduce the percentage of common stock held by our stockholders in relation to our aggregate outstanding capital stock. Further, the
terms on which we could obtain additional capital during the life of the derivative securities may be adversely affected, and it should be expected that the holders of the derivative securities would exercise them at a time when we would be able to
obtain equity capital on terms more favorable than those provided for by such derivative securities. As a result, any issuance of additional shares of our common stock may cause our current stockholders to suffer significant dilution which may
adversely affect the market.
While we have no present plans to issue any additional shares of preferred stock, our Board has the authority,
without stockholder approval, to create and issue one or more series of such preferred stock and to determine the voting, dividend and other rights of holders of such preferred stock. The issuance of any of such series of preferred stock may have an
adverse effect on the holders of our common stock.
Shares eligible for future sale may adversely affect the market.
From time to time, certain of our stockholders may be eligible to sell all or some of their shares of our common stock by means of ordinary brokerage
transactions in the open market pursuant to Rule 144, promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, subject to certain limitations. In general, pursuant to Rule 144, a stockholder (or stockholders whose shares are aggregated) who has
satisfied a six-month holding period may sell their securities provided that (i) such person is not deemed to have been one of our affiliates at the time of, or at any time during the three months preceding a sale and (ii) we are subject
to the Exchange Act periodic reporting requirements for at least three months before the sale. A person who has beneficially owned restricted shares of our common stock for at least six months but who is also our affiliate at the time of, or at any
time during the three months preceding, a sale would be subject to additional restrictions, by which such person would be entitled to sell within any three month period a number of securities which does not exceed the greater of 1% of the then
outstanding shares of common stock or the average weekly trading volume of the class during the four calendar weeks prior to such sale. Sales both by affiliates and by non-affiliates may also need to comply with the manner of sale, current public
information and notice provisions of Rule 144.
Any substantial sale of our common stock pursuant to Rule 144 or pursuant to any resale
prospectus may have a material adverse effect on the market price of our common stock.
We have no history of paying dividends on our
We have never paid any cash dividends on our common stock and do not anticipate paying any cash dividends on our common
stock in the foreseeable future. We plan to retain any future earnings to finance growth. If we decide to pay dividends to the holders of our common stock, such dividends may not be paid on a timely basis.
Sales of large quantities of our common stock by our stockholders, including those shares issued in connection with private placement transactions,
could reduce the price of our common stock.
Since May 2005, we have entered into private placements and registered direct offerings
whereby we sell large quantities of our common stock or securities convertible into our common stock to investors.
These holders of the
shares may sell such shares, if such shares are registered or pursuant to an exemption from registration, at any price and at any time, as determined by such holders in their sole discretion without limitation. Any sales of large quantities of our
common stock could reduce the price of our common stock. If any such holders sell such shares in large quantities, our common stock price may decrease and the public market for our common stock may otherwise be adversely affected because of the
additional shares available in the market.
