Item 4. Ownership

 

Provide the following information regarding the aggregate number and percentage of the class of securities of the issuer identified in Item 1.

 

The information as of the date of the event which requires filing of this statement required by Items 4(a) – (c) is set forth in Rows 5 – 11 of the cover page for each Reporting Person hereto and is incorporated herein by reference for each such Reporting Person. The percentage set forth in Row 11 of the cover page for each Reporting Person is based on 1,465,496 shares of Common Stock outstanding as of December 6, 2018, as represented in the Company’s Prospectus filed pursuant to Rule 424(b)(4) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 7, 2018, and assumes the exercise of the Company’s reported warrants (the “Reported Warrants”) and the conversion of the Company’s reported preferred stock (the “Reported Preferred Stock”), subject to the Blockers (as defined below).

 

Pursuant to the terms of (i) the certificate of designations containing the terms of the Reported Preferred Stock, the Reporting Persons cannot convert the Reported Preferred Stock to the extent the Reporting Persons would beneficially own, after any such conversion, more than 9.99% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock (the “Preferred Stock Blockers”) and (ii) the Reported Warrants, the Reporting Persons cannot exercise the Reported Warrants to the extent the Reporting Persons would beneficially own, after any such exercise, more than 9.99% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock (the “Warrant Blockers” and collectively with the Preferred Stock Blockers, the “Blockers”), and the percentage set forth in Row 11 of the cover page for each Reporting Person gives effect to the Blockers. Consequently, as of the date of the event which requires the filing of this statement, the Reporting Persons were not able to exercise all of the Reported Preferred Stock or any of the Reported Warrants due to the Blockers.

 

As of the date of the event which requires filing of this statement, Iroquois Master Fund Ltd. (“Iroquois Master Fund”) held shares of Reported Preferred Stock convertible into 284,975 shares of Common Stock and warrants to purchase 569,950 shares of Common Stock and Iroquois Capital Investment Group LLC (“ICIG”) held shares of Reported Preferred Stock convertible into 492,227 shares of Common Stock and warrants to purchase 984,454 shares of Common Stock.

 

Mr. Abbe shares authority and responsibility for the investments made on behalf of Iroquois Master Fund with Ms. Kimberly Page, each of whom is a director of the Iroquois Master Fund. As such, Mr. Abbe and Ms. Page may each be deemed to be the beneficial owner of all shares of Common Stock underlying the Reported Preferred Stock and Reported Warrants (each subject to the Blockers) held by, Iroquois Master Fund. Iroquois Capital is the investment advisor for Iroquois Master Fund and Mr. Abbe is the President of Iroquois Capital. Mr. Abbe has the sole authority and responsibility for the investments made on behalf of ICIG. As such, Mr. Abbe may be deemed to be the beneficial owner of all shares of Common Stock underlying the Reported Preferred Stock and Reported Warrants (each subject to the Blockers) held by, Iroquois Master Fund and ICIG. The foregoing should not be construed in and of itself as an admission by any Reporting Person as to beneficial ownership of shares of Common Stock owned by another Reporting Person. Each of the Reporting Persons hereby disclaims any beneficial ownership of any such shares of Common Stock except to the extent of their pecuniary interest therein.

 
Item 5. Ownership of Five Percent or Less of a Class

 

If this statement is being filed to report the fact that as of the date hereof the reporting person has ceased to be the beneficial owner of more than five percent of the class of securities, check the following:  o
