WHEREAS, the Line of Credit Grid Promissory Note bore an interest rate of 9%, was unsecured and was not convertible into any other Company securities;
WHEREAS, on March 11, 2013, the Company and SIC entered into an Exchange Agreement, dated as of March 11, 2013, by and between SIC and the Company (the “Exchange Agreement”), pursuant to which SIC exchanged the Line of Credit Grid Promissory Note for a new note (the “New Note”), which New Note bears an interest rate of 8%, is secured pursuant to a Security Agreement, dated as of March 11, 2013, by and between SIC and Sillerman, as Collateral Agent (the “Security Agreement”), and is convertible into Common Stock, par value $0.001 per share, of the Company (the “Common Stock”);
WHEREAS, pursuant to the Exchange Agreement, in connection with the exchange of the Line of Credit Grid Promissory Note for the New Note, the Company issued to SIC 8,312,699 shares of Common Stock (the “March Shares”), representing 40,000 shares of Common Stock for each $100,000 of the Line of Credit Grid Promissory Note so exchanged;
WHEREAS, on February 11, 2013, the Company and SIC II, and affiliate of SIC, entered into a Line of Credit Grid Promissory Note pursuant to which SIC II agreed to provide the Company a line of credit of up to $25,000,000 (the “New Line of Credit Note”), and in consideration of SIC II’s agreeing to enter into the New Line of Credit Note, the Company issued to SIC II 5,000,000 shares of Common Stock (the “February Shares”);
WHEREAS, the parties now wish to rescind the transactions pursuant to the Exchange Agreement, such that that the Company and SIC each will be in the relative position that such party occupied had the Exchange Agreement not been consummated, such that the New Note will be cancelled, the March Shares will be deemed to have never been issued, and the Line of Credit Grid Promissory Note will be deemed to remain in place as though the Exchange Agreement had never been consummated;
WHEREAS, SIC II has agreed that it will return to the Company and forfeit the February Shares; and
WHEREAS, the Company desires to issue to SIC II warrants to purchase 5,000,000 shares of the Company’s Common Stock, which warrants will be exercisable for 5 years from issuance and will have an exercise price equal to the closing price of the Company’s shares on the date of issuance (the “Warrants”).
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows:
1.Rescission of Exchange Agreement and February Shares.

In addition, the issuance of the February Shares is hereby irrevocably rescinded and null and void ab initio. Accordingly, SIC shall deliver to the Company the New Note and the stock certificates representing the March Shares and the February Shares duly endorsed in blank for immediate cancellation, the March Shares and February Shares shall be cancelled and returned to treasury, and the Line of Credit Grid Promissory Note shall remain in place as though the Exchange Agreement had never been executed or consummated.
