[1] The conversion option agreement allows Philips to convert certain royalty and other payments due to it up to a maximum of 10% of the then outstanding capital of the Company on a fully diluted post-money basis, but only if the Company has not yet made a lump sum payment in lieu of such royalty and other payments, and the conversion can only be exercised by Philips upon the acceptance of the exercise by the Company at its sole discretion. The number of 4,708,351 shares that can still be issued assumes that all outstanding warrants (entailing the issue of up to 2,413,738 new shares) have been exercised, it being understood that the actual number of shares issuable depends on a number of factors.
