Pursuant to the Consulting Agreement, Mr. Loeb will receive cash compensation, effective retroactively as of January 1, 2021, of $16,000 per month for service as President and CEO of the Registrant, and an additional $10,000 per month for so long as he serves as Acting CEO of OmniMetrix. Mr. Loeb also received a grant of options on February 2, 2021, to purchase 35,000 shares of the Registrant’s common stock, which are exercisable at an exercise price equal to the February 1, 2021, closing price of the common stock of $0.48 per share. Twenty-five percent (25%) of the options were vested immediately; the remaining options shall vest in three equal increments on April 1, 2021, July 1, 2021 and October 1, 2021. The exercise period and other terms are otherwise substantially the same as the terms of the options granted by the Registrant to its outside directors.
