The K2 Warrant may be exercised either for cash or on a cashless “net exercise” basis and expires on July 28, 2030. The total proceeds attributed to the K2 Warrant was approximately $472,000 based on the relative fair value of the K2 Warrant as compared to the sum of the fair values of the K2 Warrant, prepayment feature, default feature, and debt. Total proceeds attributed to the prepayment and default features was approximately $546,000. The Company also incurred approximately $1,244,000 of debt issuance costs and is required to make a final payment equal to approximately $1,190,000. See Note 14 for more detail on assumptions used in the valuation of the K2 Warrant and see Note 15 for more information on the assumptions used in valuation of the default and prepayment features.

The subsidiaries of the Company are guarantors of the obligations of the Company under the Loan Agreement.
