                    (A) A challenge may be made by any person or group of persons holding of record sixty-six percent (66%) or more of the outstanding Series C Preferred Stock and Series D Preferred Stock, voting together as a group on an as-if converted basis.

conversion, issue and deliver to such holder of Preferred Stock who has tendered the certificate or required undertaking, a certificate or certificates for the number of shares of Common Stock to which the holder shall be entitled and a check payable to the holder in the amount of any cash amounts payable as the result of a conversion into a fractional share of Common Stock, and any declared but unpaid dividends on the converted Preferred Stock, that the holder elected to receive in cash. The person or persons entitled to receive the shares of Common Stock issuable upon such conversion shall be treated for all purposes as the record holder or holders of such shares of Common Stock on such date.
          (d) Mechanics of Conversion. Before any holder of Preferred Stock shall be entitled to convert the same into shares of Common Stock, such holder shall surrender the certificate or certificates therefor, duly endorsed, at the office of the Company or of any transfer agent for the Preferred Stock or Common Stock, and shall give written notice to the Company that such holder elects to convert the same and shall state therein the number of shares of Preferred Stock being converted and the name or names in which the certificate or certificates for shares of Common Stock are to be issued. Thereupon the Company shall promptly issue and deliver to such holder of Preferred Stock or to the nominee or nominees of such holder a certificate or certificates for the number of shares of Common Stock to which such holder shall be entitled. Such conversion shall be deemed to have been made immediately prior to the close of business on the date of such surrender of the shares of Preferred Stock to be converted, and the person or persons entitled to receive the shares of Common Stock issuable upon such conversion shall be treated for all purposes as the record holder or holders of such shares of Common Stock on such date.
          (e) Adjustment for Stock Splits and Combinations. If the Company shall at any time or from time to time after the Original Issue Date increase the outstanding shares of Common Stock by split, subdivision or otherwise, the Conversion Price then in effect immediately before that subdivision shall be proportionately decreased; conversely, if the Company shall at any time or from time to time after the Original Issue Date reduce the outstanding shares of Common Stock by combination or otherwise, the Conversion Price then in effect immediately before the combination shall be proportionately increased. Any adjustment under this Subsection 6(e) shall become effective concurrent with the subdivision or combination.
          (f) Adjustment for Certain Dividends and Distributions. In the event the Company at any time or from time to time after the Original Issue Date shall make or issue, or fix a record date for the determination of holders of Common Stock entitled to receive, a dividend or other distribution payable in additional shares of Common Stock, then and in each such event the Conversion Price for the Preferred Stock then in effect shall be decreased as of the time of such issuance or, in the event such a record date shall have been fixed, as of the close of business on such record date, by multiplying the Conversion Price for the Preferred Stock then in effect by fraction:
               (1) the numerator of which shall be the total number of shares of Common stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the time of such issuance or the close of business on such record date, and

-13-


 
               (2) the denominator of which shall be the total number of shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the time of such issuance or the close of business on such record date, plus the number of shares of Common Stock issuable in payment of such dividend or distribution; provided, however, if such record date shall have been fixed and such dividend is not fully paid or if such distribution is not fully made on the date fixed therefor, the Conversion Price for the Preferred Stock shall be recomputed accordingly as of the close of business on such record date and thereafter the Conversion Price for the Preferred Stock shall be adjusted pursuant to this Subsection 6(f) as of the time of actual payment of such dividends or distributions.
          (g) Adjustments for Other Dividends and Distributions. In the event the Company if at any time or from time to time after the Original Issue Date shall make or issue, or fix a record date for the determination of holders of Common Stock entitled to receive, a dividend or other distribution payable in securities of the Company other than shares of Common Stock, then and in each such event provision shall be made so that the holders of Preferred Stock shall receive upon conversion thereof in addition to the number of shares of Common Stock receivable thereupon, the amount of securities of the Company that they would have received had their Preferred Stock been converted into Common Stock on the date of such event and had thereafter, during the period from the date of such event to and including the conversion date, retained such securities receivable by them as aforesaid during such period giving application to all adjustments called for during such period under this Subsection 6 with respect to the rights of the holders of the Preferred Stock.
          (h) Adjustment for Reclassification, Exchange or Substitution. If the Common Stock issuable upon the conversion of the Preferred Stock shall be changed into the same or different number of shares of any class or classes of stock, whether by capital reorganization, reclassification or otherwise (other than a subdivision or combination of shares or stock dividend provided for above, or a reorganization, merger, consolidation or sale of assets provided for elsewhere in this Subsection 6), then and in each such event the holder of each share of Preferred Stock shall have the right thereafter to convert such share into the kind and amounts of shares of stock and other securities and property receivable upon such reorganization, reclassification or other change, by holders of the numbers of shares of Common Stock into which such shares of Preferred Stock might have been converted immediately prior to such reorganization, reclassification or change, all subject to further adjustment as provided herein.
          (i) Reorganization, Mergers, Consolidations or Sales of Assets. Subject to the provisions of Subsection 4 above, if at any time or from time to time there shall be a capital reorganization of the Common Stock (other than a subdivision, combination, reclassification or exchange of shares provided for elsewhere in this Subsection 6) or a merger or consolidation of the Company with or into another corporation, or the sale of all or substantially all the Company's properties and assets to any other person, then, as a part of such reorganization, merger, consolidation or sale, provision shall be made so that the holders of the Preferred Stock shall thereafter be entitled to receive upon conversion of the Preferred Stock, the number of shares of stock or other securities or property of the Company, or of the successor corporation resulting from such merger or consolidation or sale, to which a holder of that number of shares of Common Stock deliverable upon conversion of the Preferred Stock would have been entitled on such capital reorganization, merger, consolidation or sale. In any such case,

-14-


 
appropriate adjustment shall be made in the application of the provisions of this Subsection 6 with respect to the rights of the holders of the Preferred Stock after the reorganization, merger, consolidation or sale to the end that the provisions of this Subsection 6 (including adjustment of the Conversion Prices then in effect and the number of shares purchasable upon conversion of the Preferred Stock) shall be applicable after that event as nearly equivalent as may be practicable.
          (j) Sale of Shares Below Conversion Price.
               (1) If at any time or from time to time after the Original Issue Date, the Company shall issue or sell Additional Shares of Common Stock (as hereinafter defined)(including Additional Shares of Common Stock deemed to be issued or sold pursuant to Subsection 6(j)(3)), other than as a dividend provided for in Subsection 6(f) above, and other than upon a subdivision or combination of shares of Common Stock as provided in Subsection 6(e) above, without consideration or for a consideration per share less than the Conversion Price for the Series A Preferred Stock, the Series B Preferred Stock, the Series C Preferred Stock and/or the Series D Preferred Stock in effect immediately prior to such issue or sale, then and in each case the Conversion Price then in effect for such Series A Preferred Stock, Series B Preferred Stock, the Series C Preferred Stock and/or Series D Preferred Stock (as applicable) shall be reduced concurrently with such issue or sale to a price determined by multiplying that Conversion Price for Series A Preferred Stock, the Series B Preferred Stock, the Series C Preferred Stock and/or Series D Preferred Stock (as applicable) by a fraction (1) the numerator of which shall be (a) the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to such issue or sale, plus (b) the number of shares of Common Stock that the aggregate consideration received by the Company for the total number of Additional Shares of Common Stock so issued would purchase at such Conversion Price for the Series A Preferred Stock, the Series B Preferred Stock, the Series C Preferred Stock and/or Series D Preferred Stock (as applicable), and (2) the denominator of which shall be the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to such issue or sale plus the number of such Additional Shares of Common Stock so issued.
               (2) For the purpose of making any adjustment in the Conversion Price of the Series A Preferred Stock, the Conversion Price of the Series B Preferred Stock, the Conversion Price of the Series C Preferred Stock, the Conversion Price of the Series D Preferred Stock, or number of shares of Common Stock purchasable on conversion of the Series A Preferred Stock, the Series B Preferred Stock, the Series C Preferred Stock and/or the Series D Preferred Stock as provided above, the consideration received by the Company for any issue or sale (or deemed issue or sale) of securities shall:
                    (A) to the extent it consists of cash, be computed at the net amount of cash received by the Company after deduction of any underwriting or similar commissions, concessions or compensation paid or allowed by the Company in connection with such issue or sale;
                    (B) to the extent it consists of services or property other than cash, be computed at the fair value of such services or property as determined in good faith by the Board irrespective of the accounting treatment, provided, however, that such fair market

-15-


 
value, when added to any cash consideration received in connection with such sale or issuance, shall not exceed the aggregate market price of the Additional Shares of Common Stock being issued or deemed issued as of the date of the adoption of the Board resolution; and
                    (C) if Additional Shares of Common Stock, Convertible Securities (as hereinafter defined), or rights or options to purchase either Additional Shares of Common Stock or Convertible Securities are issued or sold together with other stock or securities or other assets of the Company for a consideration that covers both, be computed as the portion of the consideration so received that may be reasonably determined in good faith by the Board to be allocable to such Additional Shares of Common Stock, Convertible Securities or rights or options.
               (3) For the purpose of the adjustment provided in Subsection 6(j), if at any time or from time to time after the Original Issue Date the Company shall issue any rights or options for the purchase of, or stock or other securities convertible into, Additional Shares of Common Stock (such convertible stock or securities being hereinafter referred to as "Convertible Securities"), then, in each case, if the Effective Price (as hereinafter defined) of such rights, options or Convertible Securities shall be less than the then existing Conversion Price for the Series A Preferred Stock, the Series B Preferred Stock, the Series C Preferred Stock and/or Series D Preferred Stock (as applicable), the Company shall be deemed to have issued at the time of the issuance of such rights or options or Convertible Securities the maximum number (as set forth in the instrument relating thereto without regard to any provisions for a subsequent adjustment of such number) of Additional Shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise or conversion thereof and to have received as consideration for the issuance of such shares an amount equal to the total amount of the consideration, if any, received by the Company for the issuance of such rights or options or Convertible Securities, plus, in the case of such options or rights, the minimum amounts of consideration, if any, payable to the Company upon exercise or conversion of such options or rights. For purposes of the foregoing, "Effective Price" shall mean the quotient determined by dividing the total of all such consideration by such maximum number of Additional Shares of Common Stock. No further adjustment of the Conversion Price adjusted upon the issuance of such rights, options or Convertible Securities shall be made as a result of the actual issuance of Additional Shares of Common Stock on the exercise of any such rights or options or the conversion of any such Convertible Securities.
     In the event such rights, options or Convertible Securities by their terms provide, with the passage of time or otherwise, for any increase or decrease in the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon the exercise, conversion or exchange of any such rights, options or Convertible Securities, including but not limited to, a change resulting from the anti-dilution provisions thereof, then upon the exercise, conversion or exchange thereof, the Conversion Price for the Series A Preferred Stock, the Conversion Price for the Series B Preferred Stock, the Conversion Price for the Series C Preferred Stock and the Conversion Price of the Series D Preferred Stock computed upon the original issue (or deemed issue) thereof and any subsequent adjustments based thereon, shall, upon any such increase or decrease becoming effective, be recomputed to reflect such increase or decrease insofar as it affects such rights, options or Convertible Securities, provided that no adjustment to the Conversion Price shall affect the Common Stock previously issued upon conversion of the Preferred Stock. No readjustment pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence shall have the effect of increasing the

-16-


 
Conversion Price of (A) the Series A Preferred Stock to an amount which exceeds the lower of (i) the Conversion Price of the Series A Preferred Stock on the original adjustment date, and (ii) the Conversion Price of the Series A Preferred Stock that would have resulted from any issuances of Additional Shares of Common Stock between the original adjustment date and such readjustment date, (B) the Series B Preferred Stock to an amount which exceeds the lower of (i) the Conversion Price of the Series B Preferred Stock on the original adjustment date, and (ii) the Conversion Price of the Series B Preferred Stock that would have resulted from any issuances of Additional Shares of Common Stock between the original adjustment date and such readjustment date, (C) the Series C Preferred Stock to an amount which exceeds the lower of (i) the Conversion Price of the Series C Preferred Stock on the original adjustment date, and (ii) the Conversion Price of the Series C Preferred Stock that would have resulted from any issuances of Additional Shares of Common Stock between the original adjustment date and such readjustment date, or (D) the Series D Preferred Stock to an amount which exceeds the lower of (i) the Conversion Price of the Series D Preferred Stock on the original adjustment date, and (ii) the Conversion Price of the Series D Preferred Stock that would have resulted from any issuances of Additional Shares of Common Stock between the original adjustment date and such readjustment date.
     If any such rights or options or the conversion privilege represented by any such Convertible Securities shall expire without having been exercised, the Conversion Price adjusted upon the issuance of such rights, options or Convertible Securities shall not be readjusted, but the Additional Shares of Common Stock deemed issued as a result of the original issue of such right, option or Convertible Security shall not be deemed issued for the purposes of any subsequent adjustment of the Conversion Price.
          (k) [Reserved].
          (l) [Reserved].
          (m) Definition. The term "Additional Shares of Common Stock" as used herein shall mean all shares of Common Stock issued (or deemed issued pursuant to Subsection 6(j) by the Company after the Original Issue Date, whether or not subsequently reacquired or retired by the Company, other than (1) shares of Common Stock issued upon conversion of the Preferred Stock; (2) shares of Common Stock and Preferred Stock issued upon exercise of the options, warrants or other rights to purchase Common Stock or Preferred Stock that are outstanding on the Original Issue Date; (3) shares of Common Stock issued in connection with equipment lease financing transactions, bank financing transactions or strategic business or partnering transactions approved by the Board, where the issuance of such shares is not principally for the purpose of raising additional capital and in no event shall exceed 1,000,000 shares (subject to Adjustment), or such greater number of shares approved by the holders of a majority of the outstanding Series A Preferred Stock, Series B Preferred Stock, Series C Preferred Stock and Series D Preferred Stock, voting together as a class on an as-if converted basis; (4) for consideration other than cash in connection with the acquisition of any company or assets of another company if such acquisition is approved by the Board; and (5) shares of Common Stock issued to employees, officers, directors, consultants or advisors performing services for the Company pursuant to grants under any stock option plan, stock

-17-


 
purchase plan, management incentive plan or other agreement approved by the Board after the Original Issue Date.
          (n) Accountants' Certificate of Adjustment. In each case of an adjustment or readjustment of the Conversion Price for the number of shares of Common Stock or other securities issuable upon conversion of the Preferred Stock, the Company, at its expense, shall cause independent certified public accountants of recognized standing elected by the Company (who may be the independent certified public accountants then auditing the books of the Company) to compute such adjustment or readjustment in accordance herewith and prepare a certificate showing such adjustment or readjustment, and shall mail such certificate, by first class mail, postage prepaid, to each registered holder of the Preferred Stock at the holder's address as shown in the Company's books. The certificate shall set forth such adjustment or readjustment, showing in detail the facts upon which adjustment or readjustment is based including a statement of (A) the consideration received or to be received by the Company for any Additional Shares of Common Stock issued or sold or deemed to have been issued or sold, (B) the Conversion Price at the time in effect for each series of the Preferred Stock, and (C) the number of Additional Shares of Common Stock and the type and amount, if any, of other property which at the time would be received upon conversion of the Preferred Stock.
          (o) Notices of Record Date. In the event of (i) any taking by the Company of a record of the holders of any class or series of securities for the purpose of determining the holders thereof who are entitled to receive any dividend or other distribution or (ii) any reclassification or recapitalization of the capital stock of the Company, any merger or consolidation of the Company, or any transfer of all or substantially all the assets of the Company to any other corporation, entity or person, or any voluntary or involuntary dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the affairs of the Company, the Company shall provide to each holder of Preferred Stock at least thirty (30) days prior to the record date specified therein, a notice specifying (A) the date on which any such record is to be taken for the purpose of such dividend or distribution, (B) the date on which any such reorganization, reclassification, transfer, consolidation, merger, dissolution, liquidation or winding up is expected to become effective, and (C) the time, if any is to be fixed, as to when the holders of record of Common Stock (or other securities) shall be entitled to exchange their shares of Common Stock (or other securities) for securities or other property deliverable upon such reorganization, reclassification, transfer, consolidation, merger, dissolution, liquidation or winding up.
          (p) Fractional Shares. No fractional shares of Common Stock shall be issued upon conversion of shares of Preferred Stock. In lieu of any fractional shares to which the holder would otherwise be entitled, the Company shall pay cash equal to the product of such fraction multiplied by the fair market value of one share of the Company's Common Stock on the date of conversion, as determined in good faith by the Board. For such purpose, all shares of Preferred Stock held by each holder shall be aggregated and any resulting fractional share of Common Stock shall be paid in cash.
          (q) Reservation of Stock Issuable Upon Conversion. The Company shall at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock, solely for the purpose of effecting the conversion of the shares of the Preferred Stock, such number of its shares of Common Stock as shall from time to time be sufficient to effect the

-18-


 
conversion of all outstanding shares of the Preferred Stock. As a condition precedent to the taking of any action which would cause an adjustment to the applicable Conversion Price, the Company will take such corporate action as may, in the opinion of its counsel, be necessary to increase its authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock to such number of shares as shall be sufficient in order that it may validly and legally issue the shares of its Common Stock issuable based upon such applicable adjusted Conversion Price.
          (r) Notices. Any notice required by the provisions of this Subsection 6 to be given to the holder of shares of the Preferred Stock shall be deemed given when received by such holder after the same has been sent by means of certified or registered mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid, by a reputable overnight courier or messenger for hand delivery and addressed to each holder of record at his address appearing on the books of the Company.
          (s) Payment of Taxes. The Company will pay all taxes and other governmental charges (other than taxes measured by the revenue or income of the holders of the Preferred Stock) that may be imposed in respect of the issue or delivery of shares of Common Stock upon conversion of the shares of the Preferred Stock.
          (t) No Dilution or Impairment. Without the written consent of the holders of Preferred Stock, as required under Subsection 8 hereof, the Company shall not amend its Certificate of Incorporation or participate in any reorganization, recapitalization, transfer of assets, consolidation, merger, dissolution, issue or sale of securities or any other voluntary action, for the purpose of avoiding or seeking to avoid the observance or performance of any of the terms to be observed or performed hereunder by the Company, but will at all times in good faith assist in carrying out all such action as may be reasonably necessary or appropriate in order to protect the conversion rights of the holders of the Preferred Stock against dilution or other impairment.
          (u) Exception to Adjustment by Written Consent.
               (1) No adjustment in the Conversion Price of the Series A Preferred Stock shall be made as a result of the issuance of Additional Shares of Common Stock if prior to such issuance or deemed issuance, the Company receives written consent from the holders of at least 55% of the then outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock agreeing that no such adjustment shall be made as a result of the issuance or deemed issuance of Additional Shares of Common Stock.
               (2) No adjustment in the Conversion Price of the Series B Preferred Stock shall be made as a result of the issuance of Additional Shares of Common Stock if prior to such issuance or deemed issuance, the Company receives written consents from the holders of at least 55% of the then outstanding shares of Series B Preferred Stock agreeing that no such adjustment shall be made as a result of the issuance or deemed issuance of the Additional Shares of Common Stock.
               (3) No adjustment in the Conversion Price of the Series C Preferred Stock shall be made as a result of the issuance of Additional Shares of Common Stock

-19-


 
if prior to such issuance or deemed issuance, the Company receives written notice from the holders of at least 66% of the then outstanding shares of Series C Preferred Stock agreeing that no such adjustment shall be made as a result of the issuance or deemed issuance of Additional Shares of Common Stock; provided, however, that in the event that the Conversion Price of the Series A Preferred Stock and the Conversion Price of the Series B Preferred Stock would also be adjusted as a result of the issuance or deemed issuance of the Additional Shares of Common Stock, this consent shall not be effective unless the Company also receives written consents from the holders of at least 55% of the then outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock, voting separately as a class, and 55% of the then outstanding shares of Series B Preferred Stock, voting separately as a class, agreeing that no such adjustment shall be made to the Conversion Price of the Series A Preferred Stock and the Conversion Price of the Series B Preferred Stock, respectively, upon the issuance or deemed issuance of Additional Shares of Common Stock.
               (4) No adjustment in the Conversion Price of the Series D Preferred Stock shall be made as a result of the issuance of Additional Shares of Common Stock if prior to such issuance or deemed issuance, the Company receives written consents from the holders of at least a majority of the then outstanding shares of Series D Preferred Stock agreeing that no such adjustment shall be made as a result of the issuance or deemed issuance of the Additional Shares of Common Stock.
