As previously announced, on September 19, 2006, the holders of the Notes (the "Holders") accelerated the maturity date of the Notes to October 19, 2006, after the Company's shareholders failed to approve certain conversion terms of the Notes and the issuance of warrants to purchase 5.5 million shares of the Company's common stock. Attempts to negotiate new Note terms that would be acceptable to the Holders, the Company and its shareholders were unsuccessful.
The Company paid a total of $2,012,274 to the Holders from cash reserves. Pursuant to the terms of the Subscription Agreement for the Notes, the Holders will retain Class E Warrants for the purchase of up to 752,072 shares of the Company's common stock at $1.186 per share for a period of five years through May 31, 2011. A Registration Statement on Form S-3, as amended (Registration No. 333-136078), registering the common stock issuable upon exercise of the Class E Warrants, was declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 13, 2006.
Lori Jones, the Company's CEO, said, "We are pleased that our cash reserves are sufficient to meet this obligation. However, we continue to seek additional funding arrangements to support our balanced growth strategy within the energy industry, and we are currently in negotiation with several potential sources of capital."
