Neither the Reporting Person nor, to the best of the Reporting Person’s knowledge, any of the executive officers or directors listed above, has, during the last five years, been convicted in a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors).
Neither the Reporting Person nor, to the best of the Reporting Person’s knowledge, any of the executive officers or directors listed above, has, during the last five years, been a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent jurisdiction and, as a result of such proceeding, was or is subject to a judgment,

decree or final order enjoining future violations of, or prohibiting or mandating activities subject to, federal or state securities laws or finding any violation with respect to such laws.
As a result of the negotiation and consummation of the purchase and sale of the Shares and the Warrant (as such terms are defined under Item 4 below), the Reporting Person may be deemed to be a member of a “group,” within the meaning of Section 13(d)(3) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), comprised of the Reporting Person and SOL Global Investments Corp. (“SOL”).  Separately, as a result of the entry into the IRA (as defined below under Item 4), the Reporting Person may be deemed to be a member of a “group,” within the meaning of Section 13(d)(3) of the Exchange Act, comprised of the Reporting Person and Jennifer Cue, Eric Chastain and Michael Fleming (the “Shareholders,” and together with SOL, the “Separately Filing Group Members”).  The Reporting Person understands that the Separately Filing Group Members will file a statement on Schedule 13D addressing their status as a member of a “group” with the Reporting Person.
Schedule A attached hereto sets forth certain information regarding the Separately Filing Group Members as required by Item 2 of Schedule 13D.
Item 3. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.
The purchase price for the Shares and the Warrant was paid in cash from proceeds of a private placement of securities of the Reporting Person.

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.
Purchase of Shares and Warrant
On July 11, 2019, the Reporting Person entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with the Issuer, pursuant to which the Reporting Person purchased 15,000,000 shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock (the “Shares”) and a warrant to purchase up to an additional 15,000,000 shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock (the “Warrant”).  The aggregate purchase price for the Shares and the Warrant was $9,000,000 in cash, which was paid to the Issuer at the closing of the purchase and sale on July 11, 2019 (the “Closing”).
The Warrant is immediately exercisable, has a term of one-year following Closing, and provides the Reporting Person with the right to purchase up to 15,000,000 shares of Common Stock (the “Warrant Shares”) at an exercise price of $0.78 per share, subject to adjustments in the event of certain stock splits, stock dividends or distributions, reorganizations, reclassifications or other similar events.  The Warrant shall be automatically exercised upon the occurrence of the following:
(i)
If the Issuer’s closing share price as reported on the OTCQB Marketplace, or its then primary trading market, is equal to or greater than $1.78 for at least five (5) consecutive trading days the Warrant shall be automatically exercised with respect to 25% of the total number of the Warrant Shares;

(ii)
If the Issuer’s closing share price as reported on the OTCQB Marketplace, or its then primary trading market, is equal to or greater than $2.12 for at least five (5) consecutive trading days, the Warrant shall be automatically exercised with respect to an additional 25% of the total number of the Warrant Shares;

(iii)
If the Issuer’s closing share price as reported on the OTCQB Marketplace, or its then primary trading market, is equal to or greater than $2.36 for at least five (5) consecutive trading days, the Warrant shall be automatically exercised with respect to an additional 25% of the total number of the Warrant Shares; and

(iv)
If the Issuer’s closing share price as reported on the OTCQB Marketplace, or its then primary trading market, is equal to or greater than $2.60 for at least five (5) consecutive trading days, the Warrant shall be automatically exercised with respect to the remaining 25% of the total number of the Warrant Shares.

If the Reporting Person fails to pay the exercise price upon the automatic exercise of the Warrant, then the Warrant shall thereafter terminate in its entirety.
Investor Rights Agreement
On July 11, 2019, in connection with the Purchase Agreement, the Reporting Person, the Issuer and the Shareholders entered into an Investor Rights Agreement (the “IRA”).  Pursuant to the IRA, the Issuer and the Shareholders agreed to cause the Issuer’s board of directors (the “Board”) to be set at seven directors.  The Reporting Person has the right to designate two members of the Board (the “Investor Designees”), and the Shareholders have agreed to vote their shares of Common Stock in favor of the election of the Investor Designees.  For so long as any Investor Designees serve on the Board, the Issuer must obtain the approval of the Board, including all of the Investor Designees, before taking certain actions, such as amending the Issuer’s charter documents, offering to sell any new securities, creating any debt security, approving a change of control, changing the strategy or principal lines of business of the Issuer, liquidating or dissolving the Issuer or agreeing to make expenditures in excess of $1,000,000.  In addition, in the event that the Issuer proposes to offer any new securities (subject to certain standard exceptions), the Reporting Person has a right of first offer to purchase such securities. Under the IRA, the Reporting Person and the Shareholders have agreed for a period of one year following the closing of the transaction that they will not sell or otherwise transfer any shares of Common Stock or other securities of the Issuer, subject to certain standard exceptions.  In addition, pursuant to the IRA, the Issuer has granted the Reporting Person certain demand registration rights (after the expiration of the lock-up described in the preceding sentence) and piggyback registration rights with respect to the Shares and the Warrant Shares.
Standstill Agreements
In connection with the Purchase Agreement, the Reporting Person and SOL entered into separate Standstill Agreements.  Under the Standstill Agreements, the Reporting Person and SOL, on behalf of themselves and each of their respective affiliates, agreed to not acquire, on the open market or otherwise, any loans, debt securities, equity securities, or assets of the Issuer or any of its subsidiaries, or rights or options to acquire interests in any of the Issuer’s loans, debt securities, equity securities, or assets, except for the purchase of the Shares and the Warrant pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the purchase of the Warrant Shares pursuant to the exercise of the Warrant, or as otherwise provided below.  The Reporting Person and SOL also agreed, on behalf of themselves and each of their respective affiliates, to not make any proposal or offer to acquire the Issuer through any business combination, merger, tender offer, exchange offer, or similar transaction, acquire any of the Issuer’s securities or seek representation on the Board (other than the Investor Designees). Notwithstanding the foregoing, as an exception to the restrictions described above, the Reporting Person shall be permitted to acquire in the open market, from time to time, up to such additional number of shares of Common Stock equal to 50% of the Warrant Shares that have been purchased upon exercise of the Warrant as of such time, and SOL shall be permitted to acquire in the open market, from time to time, up to such additional number of shares of Common Stock such that the SOL’s aggregate ownership of Common Stock equals (but does not exceed) 9.99% of the Issuer’s outstanding Common Stock as of such time (on an outstanding basis and not on a fully diluted basis); and the Reporting Person shall be permitted (as an exception to the restrictions described above) to exercise all of its rights, including its right of first offer, pursuant to the IRA, in full and without restriction.  The restrictions set forth in the Standstill Agreements shall terminate and be of no further force or effect on the earlier to occur of (i) July 11, 2021 and (ii) the date on which the Warrant is exercised in full.
Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

(a)
The Reporting Person may be deemed to beneficially own (within the meaning of Rule 13d-3 under the Exchange Act) 33,852,879 shares of Common Stock, representing 46.88% of the outstanding Common Stock.  Such percentage ownership is based on (i) 42,210,985 shares of Common Stock outstanding as of May 1, 2019, as reported in the Issuer’s Quarterly Report on 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on May 13, 2019, (ii) 15,000,000 shares of Common Stock issued to the Reporting Person on July 11, 2019 and (iii) 15,000,000 shares of Common Stock underlying the Warrant issued to the Reporting Person on July 11, 2019.  (The 33,852,879 shares of Common Stock that the Reporting Person may be deemed to beneficially own include shared beneficial ownership of 3,852,879 shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Shareholders, as further described below.)

To the knowledge of the Reporting Person, SOL beneficially owns 4,892,936 shares of Common Stock.
To the knowledge of the Reporting Person, the Shareholders beneficially own, collectively, 3,852,879 shares of Common Stock.  As a result of entering into the IRA with the Shareholders, the Reporting Person may be deemed to share beneficial ownership of all 3,852,879 shares of Common Stock.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Schedule 13D, the Reporting Person disclaims any beneficial ownership of the shares of Common Stock owned by SOL or the Shareholders.  Nothing contained in this Schedule 13D shall be deemed to be an admission by the Reporting Person as to the beneficial ownership of the shares of Common Stock owned by SOL or the Shareholders.

(b)
The Reporting Person has the sole power to vote and the sole power to dispose of 30,000,000 of the shares of Common Stock that the Reporting Person may be deemed to beneficially own.
To the knowledge of the Reporting Person, SOL has the sole power to vote and the sole power to dispose of all 4,892,936 of the shares of Common Stock that SOL beneficially owns.
To the knowledge of the Reporting Person, the Shareholders have (i) the sole power to vote none of the 3,852,879 of the shares of Common Stock that the Shareholders beneficially own and (ii) the sole power to dispose of all 3,852,879 of the shares of Common Stock that the Shareholders beneficially own.

(c)
Except as described in this Schedule 13D, the Reporting Person has not effected any transaction in the Common Stock during the past 60 days.
To the knowledge of the Reporting Person, SOL has not effected any transaction in the Common Stock during the past 60 days, other than open market purchases by SOL that the Reporting Person understands will be disclosed in an Amendment No. 2 to Schedule 13D to be filed by SOL with the SEC.
To the knowledge of the Reporting Person, no Shareholder has effected in any transaction in the Common Stock during the past 60 days, other than the entry into the IRA.
