Highlight of Business Operations:

On August 16, 2010, the Company entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement with Intuitive Surgical pursuant to which Intuitive Surgical paid $3.0 million to purchase from the Company an aggregate of 1,249,541 newly-issued shares of the Companys common stock (the Stock Issuance). The net proceeds recorded to stockholders equity based upon the fair value of the common stock on August 16, 2010 were approximately $2.0 million after offering expenses. See Note 7, License, Development and Commercialization Agreements, for a discussion of the accounting treatment of the premium paid of $1.0 million, which is the amount Intuitive Surgical paid above the fair market value of the Companys stock on the date of the agreement. There were no underwriters or placement agents involved with the Stock Issuance, and no underwriting discounts or commissions or similar fees were payable in connection with the Stock Issuance. Under the associated Registration Rights Agreement between the Company and Intuitive Surgical, the Company is required to meet certain obligations with respect to (1) filing a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission pertaining to all common stock issued to Intuitive Surgical, and (2) using its reasonable best efforts to cause the registration statement to be declared effective within a specified number of days after filing the registration statement. If these requirements are not met or if, after its effective date, such registration statement ceases for any reason to be effective for a specified number of days within a given period of time, the Company is required to pay to Intuitive Surgical (or the holder of the shares subject to the rights, if such rights have been transferred), as liquidated damages and not as a penalty, an amount in cash equal to 1% of the aggregate purchase price paid pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreement for the shares then held by Intuitive Surgical or holder, as applicable. Such amount must be paid within a specified period of time following the occurrence of an event triggering the requirement to make a payment and on each monthly anniversary thereafter until such event is cured. There is no specified maximum amount to be paid under these provisions. The Company has assessed the likelihood of making any such liquidated damages payments as remote and has not recorded any contingent liability related to these potential payments.
