---------------------------------------
[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 4,172,507 shares that can still be issued assumes that all outstanding
warrants (entailing the issue of up to 1,135,885 new shares) have been
exercised, it being understood that the actual number of shares issuable
depends on a number of factors.
