Item 3.

SOURCE AND AMOUNT OF FUNDS OR OTHER CONSIDERATION

Effective April 26, 2019, the Issuer effected a 1-for-20 reverse stock split of its outstanding Common Stock. Where applicable, Common Stock share amounts described below have been adjusted to give effect to the 1-for-20 reverse stock split, with fractional shares rounded down to the nearest whole share.

On September 17, 2018, the Reporting Person purchased 916,030 shares of Common Stock for an aggregate purchase price of $3,000,000 from the Company in a private placement pursuant to a Stock Purchase Agreement, dated September 13, 2018, by and between the Company and the Reporting Person (the “September Purchase Agreement”). Prior to the closing of the transactions contemplated by the September Purchase Agreement, the Reporting Person had acquired 179,190 shares of Common Stock in open market purchases.

The closing of such purchase occurred on June 18, 2019.

The funds used for the purchase of the 179,190 shares of Common Stock in the open market were derived from personal funds of the Reporting Person. The funds used for the purchase of the remaining shares of Common Stock reported in this Item 3 of this Schedule 13D were derived from a revolving line of credit (the “Revolving Line of Credit”) entered into by and between the Reporting Person and Phelps Tointon, Inc. that has been in effect since June 4, 2010 and from which the Reporting Person draws for the Reporting Person’s general investments. Contact information for Phelps Tointon, Inc. is PO Box 9, Greeley, Colorado, 80632, Attn: Travis Gillmore, Tel: (970) 353-7000.
