NOTE 4 - SENIOR SECURED CONVERTIBLE NOTES
 
On December 4, 2012, the Company entered into the Purchase Agreement with the Buyers pursuant to which the Company sold an aggregate of (i) $4,000,000 principal amount of Notes and (ii) Warrants to purchase 2,274,796 shares of the Company's Common Stock to the Buyers for aggregate gross Financing proceeds of $4,000,000. In connection with the Financing, (i) the Company entered into a registration rights agreement with the Buyers (the Registration Rights Agreement), (ii) the Company and its subsidiaries entered into a security and pledge agreement in favor of the collateral agent for the Buyers (the Security Agreement), and (iii) subsidiaries of the Company entered into a guaranty in favor of the collateral agent for the Buyers (the Guaranty). The Closing Date of the Financing was December 5, 2012.
 
Pursuant to the terms of the Notes, the Company deposited the initial funds received from the Financing, minus $2,178,516, (the Initial Lending Amount) into the Lockbox Account controlled by the Collateral Agent, as collateral agent on behalf of the Buyers. The Company used the Initial Lending Amount to repay the existing loan of $2,000,000, plus $78,516 of interest accrued and fees and expenses to Sovereign Bank, N.A. (Sovereign), which credit agreement was terminated in connection with the Notes, and $100,000 for Buyer legal fees in connection with the Notes. In addition, all payments of accounts receivable of the Company (and its domestic subsidiaries) shall be deposited into the Lockbox Account. The Company is permitted to receive from the Lockbox Account, on a daily basis, such amount of cash equal to: (A) (i) cash balance in the Lockbox Account plus (ii) 95% of available qualified accounts receivable minus (iii) $250,000 minus (B) amount of principal, accrued interest, fees, costs and expenses owed pursuant to the Notes. The Notes contain certain customary representations and warranties, affirmative and negative covenants, and events of default. The principal covenant is that the Company shall maintain a current ratio of not less than 0.6 to 1.0 as of the last calendar day of each month. As of October 31, 2013, the Company is in compliance with the covenants.
 
The Notes were initially convertible into shares of Common Stock at a conversion price of $2.6376 per share (the Conversion Price). The Conversion Price was to be adjusted to 85% of the average of the closing bid prices for the five consecutive trading dates immediately prior to the following adjustment dates: (1) the earlier of the effective date of a registration statement or six months after closing (the First Adjustment); (2) the later of the date that is three months after the First Adjustment or one year after closing (the Second Adjustment); and (3) on the Stockholder Approval Date of February 28, 2013. On the Stockholder Approval Date, the Conversion Price was adjusted to $2.1539 per share. There was no adjustment to the Conversion Price on the First Adjustment date.
 
 
The Warrants are exercisable for a period of five years from the Closing Date at an initial exercise price of $3.2970 per share (the Exercise Price). The Exercise Price was subject to the same adjustments as provided in the Notes as described above and, as a result, the Exercise Price was adjusted to $2.1539 per share on the Stockholder Approval Date.
 
On October 25, 2013, the Company entered into an amendment, waiver and exchange agreement (the Amendment) with the Buyers that amended the conversion features of the Warrants and Notes. Pursuant to the Amendment, the Buyers exchanged 154,961 of their Warrants for 38,740 shares of common stock (the Shares) and warrants to purchase 154,961 shares of common stock (Exchange Warrants). Effectively, for every four Warrants surrendered, the Buyer received a unit of four Exchange Warrants and one Share. It was determined that the Black-Scholes value of one warrant being exchanged was equal to $1.83, resulting in four Warrants being equal to $7.32 and the parties valued the unit at a price of $7.52. As a result, the Shares issued were calculated at $0.20, and by the operation of the terms of the Notes, the conversion price of the Notes automatically adjusted to $0.20.  The Exchange Warrants are exercisable for a period of five years from the date of issuance of the original Warrants at an initial exercise price of $2.1539 per share. The exercise price will only adjust in the event of any future stock splits or dividends.
   
Pursuant to the Amendment, the Buyers permanently waived, effective as of October 24, 2013, various provisions of the Warrants, including the anti-dilution protection from the issuance of securities at a price lower than the Exercise Price, the adjustment to market price on the first anniversary of the date of issuance of the Warrants and the Black-Scholes valuation upon the occurrence of a Fundamental Transaction (as defined in the Warrants). As a result of these waivers, the exercise price of the Warrants will only adjust in the event of any future stock splits or dividends. The Exercise Price of the Warrants remains at $2.1539 per share. After the Amendment, the Warrants and Exchange Warrants have the same terms, conditions and rights.
 
In addition, pursuant to the Amendment, the Buyers permanently waived various provisions of the Notes, including the adjustment to the conversion price under a Fundamental Transaction (as defined in the Notes), the anti-dilution protection from the issuance of securities at a price lower than the current exercise price and the adjustment to market price on the first anniversary of the date of issuance of the Notes. As a result of these waivers, the conversion price of the Notes will only adjust in the event of any future stock splits or dividends.
 
Further, the Buyers waived certain events of default that had occurred under the Notes as more fully described as follows. Pursuant to the terms of the Notes, an event of default occurs when the Company’s common stock is suspended or threatened with suspension from trading on The NASDAQ Capital Market (or an equivalent market). On October 7, 2013, the Company received a notice from the Staff of the Listing Qualifications Department of The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC (NASDAQ) indicating that the Company’s common stock would be subject to delisting from The NASDAQ Capital Market on October 16, 2013 due to the Company’s non-compliance with the applicable $2.5 million stockholders’ equity requirement, as set forth in Listing Rule 5550(b) (1). As a result of the notice from NASDAQ, an event of default occurred under the Notes, which was waived by the Buyers pursuant to the Amendment. The closing of the Amendment transaction occurred on October 30, 2013.
 
On November 5, 2013, the Company entered into an amendment agreement (the Note Amendment) with the Buyers. The closing of the Note Amendment transaction occurred on November 5, 2013, and the Note Amendment was deemed effective as of October 31, 2013. The Note Amendment eliminated certain features of the Notes which would otherwise result in substantial accounting charges to the Company.
 
Prior to the Note Amendment, if an event of default existed under the Notes, the Buyers would have been entitled to redeem $3,400,000 in aggregate principal and interest of the Notes for a redemption price equal to the greater of 125% of (x) the deemed value of the shares of common stock underlying the Note (the Intrinsic Value) and (y) the outstanding principal and unpaid interest under the Notes (the Base Value). The Note Amendment reduces and fixes the event of default redemption price by eliminating the Intrinsic Value calculation and modifying the Base Value calculation and interest rate to more accurately make-whole the holders of the Notes from the loss of interest from an early redemption of the Notes and the decreased value of the Notes without such Intrinsic Value rights. As revised, the event of default redemption amount equals the sum of the Conversion Amount (as defined in the Notes) to be redeemed, plus a make-whole amount equal to the amount of any interest that, but for any redemption of the Notes on such given date, would have accrued with respect to the Conversion Amount being redeemed under the Notes at the interest rate then in effect for the period from such given date through October 31, 2023, the amended maturity date of the Notes, discounted to the present value of such interest using a discount rate of 2.5% per annum. As a result, the fixed value of the event of default redemption price is approximately $10,900,000. In addition, the interest rate of the Notes was amended to 15% per annum, subject to increase to 25% per annum if an event of default occurs and is continuing.
 
The modifications to the Notes as a result of the Amendment and Note Amendment described above included a change in the conversion price of the Notes from $2.1539 to $0.20, and a change in the maturity date of the Note, from June 5, 2014 to October 31, 2023.  As a result of the significant modifications of the Notes, the Company determined that the Notes were extinguished and New Notes were being issued. In connection with this modification, the Company compared the present value of the beneficial conversion features of the Notes to the New Notes. The Company determined that the present value of the New Notes exceeded the present value of the Notes, by more than 10%, primarily as a result of the change in the conversion price of the New Notes to $0.20 as compared to the $2.1539 under the Notes   which resulted in the application of extinguishment accounting. The modification of the Note debt instrument for the six months ended October 31, 2013, resulted in the debt instruments being exchanged with substantially different terms and extinguishment accounting was applied resulting in a loss on extinguishment of debt for the unamortized discount related to the  Notes of $1,299,304.  In addition, the Company recorded a new debt discount based on the fixed conversion rate and exercise price of $0.20 per share of $3,400,000 related to the remaining proceeds of the New Notes.

As of October 31, 2013, $593,923 of Notes was converted into 275,742 shares of the Company’s Common Stock. In addition, $6,077 of Notes was redeemed for cash at the request of a Buyer.
 
The terms of the Notes and New Notes that follow remained the same after the extinguishment of debt described above. The Company has the right, at any time after one year from the Closing Date, to redeem all, but not less than all, of the outstanding Notes, upon not less than 20 trading days nor more than 30 trading days prior written notice. The redemption price shall equal 120% of the amount of principal and interest being redeemed.
 
The Buyers agreed to restrict their ability to convert the Notes and/or exercise the Warrants and receive shares of the Company’s Common Stock such that the number of shares of Common Stock held by the Buyer in the aggregate and its affiliates after such conversion or exercise does not exceed 9.99% of the then issued and outstanding shares of the Company’s Common Stock.
 
Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company agreed to file a registration statement with the SEC, within 30 days following receipt of a request from a Buyer (or 45 days with respect to an underwritten offering), covering such shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the Notes or exercise of the Warrants, as requested by the Buyers, and have such registration statement declared effective by the SEC within 90 days thereafter. The Company also agreed to notify the Buyers if the Company at any time proposes to register any of its securities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and of such Buyers’ right to participate in such registration. In connection with the conversion described above, no request has been received from a Buyer to register such shares.
 
If the Company fails to comply with the registration statement filing, effective date or maintenance date filing requirements, it is required to pay the Buyers a registration delay payment in cash equal to 2% of the Buyer’s original principal amount stated on such Investors’ Note as of the Closing Date on the date of each failure, and on every thirty (30) day anniversary of the respective failures (Registration Delay Payment). Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event shall the aggregate amount of Registration Delay Payments exceed 10% of such Investor’s original principal amount stated on the Note on the Closing Date. The Company accounts for such Registration Delay Payments as contingent liabilities. Accordingly, the Company recognizes such damages when it becomes probable that they will be incurred and amounts are reasonably estimable.
 
Pursuant to the Guaranty, subsidiaries of the Company guaranteed to the collateral agent, for the benefit of the Buyers, the punctual payment, as and when due and payable, of all amounts owed by the Company in respect of the Purchase Agreement, the Notes and the other transaction documents executed in connection with the Purchase Agreement.
 
Pursuant to the Security Agreement, the Company and its subsidiaries granted, in favor of the collateral agent for the Buyers, a continuing security interest in all personal property and assets of the Company and its subsidiaries, as collateral security for the obligations of the Company and its subsidiaries under the Purchase Agreement, the Notes, the Guaranty and the other transaction documents.
