Pursuant to the Consulting Agreement, Mr. Stock will be compensated in the amount of $1,300,000 for the period February 16, 2012 to December 31, 2012, $1,001,025 for the period January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013 and $333,675 for the period January 1, 2014 to April 30, 2014.

The Consulting Agreement also contains provisions related to non-competition and confidentiality for the duration of the Term.
