In December, its largest stockholder and a third party that for years had provided a large, standby lending arrangement, agreed to lock up all of their shares for five years (through December 31, 2021).  To ensure that lock-up arrangement, they exchanged all of their shares for a series of ?common equivalent preferred stock, which is not redeemable; has no liquidation preference and virtually identical dividends (if any are declared); has no board seats and votes with the common stock; and is convertible back into common stock without any dilution (based on its original exchange from common stock).  Accordingly, the Companys common stock was reduced from approximately 2.8 million to 2.0 million shares.  Further, the approximately 590,146 warrants that are owned by our largest stockholder are also subject to the five-year lock up and have been exchanged for the same series of ?common equivalent preferred stock.
