|Note 9: Stockholders' Equity||
In September 2016, the Company issued options to purchase preferred stock at $0.0001 per share. This issuance was approved by its shareholders. The number of options is equal to the lesser of (a) the number of shares of common stock held by such shareholder on September 28, 2016, which accounts for approximately 25.6 million shares, or (b) the number of shares of common stock held by such shareholder on date of the shareholder’s exercise of the aforesaid option. The preferred stock that is the subject of such contingent option provides a right to elect a majority of the directors on the Board of Directors of the Corporation and does not include any rights to dividends, conversion to shares of common stock, or preference upon liquidation of the Corporation. The contingent option is exercisable only upon the acquisition of a 20% or greater voting interest in the Corporation by a party other than the founding shareholders, or prior to any proposed merger, consolidation (in which the Corporation’s common stock is changed or exchanged), or sale of at least 50% of the Corporation’s assets or earning power (other than a reincorporation). The right to exercise the option terminates on December 31, 2023.
