The balance of the 6.25% Senior Convertible Notes will remain outstanding, secured by a $7.0 million letter of credit.

Upon closing of the restructuring, the conversion price of the remaining 6.25% Senior Convertible Notes and the exercise prices of certain warrants issued in the August 2007 debt financing will be adjusted to an amount equal to $ 0.6803.

As part of the debt restructuring, the holders of its 6.25% Senior Convertible Notes consented to potential sale of certain royalties, such consent being effective upon the consummation of the debt restructuring.
