Under the Credit Facility, the Company can borrow up to $10 million without shareholder approval. The remaining $5 million under the Credit Facility may require shareholder approval under the NASDAQ Rules.

The closing and availability of the Credit Facility is subject to NASDAQ approval in accordance with Rule 5250(e), execution of definitive agreements and satisfaction of customary closing conditions.  The transaction is scheduled to close upon completion of NASDAQ review, but no later than January 31, 2014.
