POSITIVEID CORPORATION
Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
 
1. Business and Basis of Presentation
 
PositiveID Corporation (the “Company” or “PositiveID”) is a Delaware corporation formed in 2001. The Company commenced operations in 2002 as VeriChip Corporation. In 2007, the Company completed an initial public offering of its common stock.
 
In July 2008, the Company completed the sale of all of the outstanding capital stock of Xmark Corporation (“Xmark”), which at the time was principally all of the Company’s operations. The sale transaction was closed for $47.9 million in cash, which consisted of the $45 million purchase price plus a balance sheet adjustment of approximately $2.9 million, which was adjusted to $2.8 million at settlement of the escrow. Under the terms of the stock purchase agreement, $43.4 million of the proceeds were paid at closing and $4.4 million was released from escrow in July 2009. Following the completion of the sale, the Company retired all of its outstanding debt for a combined payment of $13.5 million and settled all contractual payments to Xmark’s and the Company’s officers and management for $9.1 million. In August 2008, the Company paid a special dividend to its stockholders of $15.8 million.
 
In November 2008, the Company entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (“APA”) with Digital Angel Corporation and Destron Fearing Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Digital Angel Corporation, which corporations are collectively referred to as “Digital Angel.” The terms of the APA included the purchase of patents related to an embedded bio-sensor system for use in humans, and the assignment of any rights of Digital Angel under a development agreement associated with the development of an implantable glucose sensing microchip (“GlucoChip”). The Company also received covenants from Digital Angel and Destron Fearing that permit the use of intellectual property of Digital Angel related to the Company’s health care business without payment of ongoing royalties.
 
In September 2009, VeriChip Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (the “Acquisition Subsidiary”), and Steel Vault Corporation, a Delaware corporation (“Steel Vault”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Reorganization (the “Merger Agreement”), as amended, pursuant to which the Acquisition Subsidiary was merged with and into Steel Vault in November 2009, with Steel Vault surviving and becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (the “Merger”). At the closing of the Merger, the Company’s name was changed from VeriChip Corporation to PositiveID Corporation.
 
In February 2010, the Company acquired the assets of Easy Check Medical Diagnostics, LLC (“Easy Check”), which included the Easy Check breath glucose detection system and the iglucose   wireless communication system. The purchase agreement provides for certain contingent payments and cash royalties based on future revenues. (See Note 2)
 
In May 2011, the Company entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement to acquire MicroFluidic Systems, a California corporation (“MicroFluidic”), pursuant to which MicroFluidic became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. MicroFluidic specializes in the production of automated instruments for a wide range of applications in the detection and processing of biological samples, ranging from rapid medical testing to airborne pathogen detection for homeland security. (See Note 2)
 
In July 2011, the Company completed the sale of substantially all of the assets of NationalCreditReport.com, which had been acquired in connection with the Merger. (See Note 3)
 
In January 2012, the Company sold certain assets and liabilities related to its VeriChip business, as well as all of the assets and liabilities relating to its Health Link business, to VeriTeQ Acquisition Corporation, a related party.  The Company had ceased actively marketing the VeriChip business in January 2008 and the Health Link business in September 2010.  The term “VeriChip business” does not include the GlucoChip or any product or application involving blood glucose detection or diabetes management.  (See Note 9).
 
The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All significant inter-company transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.
 
The accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2011 has been derived from the Company’s audited financial statements included in its Annual Report on Form 10-K/A for the year ended December 31, 2011. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements as of March 31, 2012 and for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Certain information and note disclosures normally included in annual financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to those rules and regulations, although the Company believes that the disclosures made are adequate to make the information not misleading. In the opinion of the Company’s management, all adjustments (including normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair presentation for the periods presented have been reflected as required by Regulation S-X, Rule 10-01.

POSITIVEID CORPORATION
Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
 
The unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the entire year. These statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and related notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K/A for the year ended December 31, 2011.
 
Going Concern
 
The Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern. As of March 31, 2012, the Company had a working capital deficiency of approximately $2.7 million and an accumulated deficit of approximately $90 million. The Company has incurred operating losses prior to and since the merger that created PositiveID. The current operating losses are the result of selling, general and administrative expenses and research and development expenses. The Company expects its operating losses to continue through at least 2012.
 
The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to obtain financing to fund the continued development of its HealthID products, the operations of MicroFluidic, and working capital requirements. Until the Company is able to achieve operating profits, it will continue to seek to access the capital markets.  Since December 31, 2010, the Company raised approximately $3.3 million under certain financing facilities. In July 2011, the Company executed an equity financing that has provided funding of approximately $2.3 million. Additionally, in January 2012, the Company raised approximately $0.4 million from the sale of preferred stock.
 
On August 31, 2011, the Company received notification that its stock was being delisted from the Nasdaq Capital Market ("Nasdaq") and on September 1, 2011 the Company’s stock began trading on the OTC Bulletin Board. The delisting from Nasdaq could adversely affect the market liquidity of the Company’s common stock and harm the business and may hinder or delay the Company’s ability to consummate potential strategic transactions or investments. Such delisting could also adversely affect the Company’s ability to obtain financing for the continuation of its operations and could result in the loss of confidence by investors, suppliers and employees.
 
These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Management intends to continue to access capital to provide funds to meet its working capital requirements for the near-term future. In addition and if necessary, the Company could reduce and/or delay certain discretionary research, development and related activities and costs. However, there can be no assurances that the Company will be able to derive sufficient funding or be successful in negotiating additional sources of equity or credit for its long-term capital needs.  The Company’s inability to have access to such financing at reasonable costs could materially and adversely impact its financial condition, results of operations and cash flows, and result in significant dilution to the Company’s existing stockholders. The Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability of assets and classification of assets and liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.
 
Use of Estimates
 
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
 
  Discontinued Operations
 
In connection with the Company’s sale of its NationalCreditReport.com business in July 2011, the results of its operations have been presented as discontinued operations in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statement of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2011 (see Note 3).

Segment Information
 
Through the second quarter of 2011, the Company operated in two business segments: HealthID and ID Security. The ID Security segment is presented as discontinued operations in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements (see Note 3).
 
HealthID Segment
 
The Company’s HealthID segment is focused on the development of three products: (1) the GlucoChip, a glucose-sensing microchip, based on the Company’s proprietary intellectual property which is being developed in conjunction with Receptors LLC (“Receptors”), (2) iglucose, a stand-alone, self-contained unit that automatically queries a diabetic user’s data-capable glucometer for blood glucose data and sends that data via machine-to-machine technology to the iglucose online database, and (3) Easy Check, a non-invasive breath glucose detection system, based on the correlation of acetone in exhaled breath to blood glucose levels.
  
ID Security Segment
 
The Company’s ID Security segment included its Identity Security suite of products, sold through NationalCreditReport.com and the Company’s Health Link personal health record (“PHR”) business. The NationalCreditReport.com business offered consumers a variety of identity security products and services primarily on a subscription basis. These services helped consumers protect themselves against identity theft or fraud and understand and monitor their credit profiles and other personal information, which included credit reports, credit monitoring and credit scores.
 
As a result of the sale of the Company’s NationalCreditReport.com business in July 2011, the Company now operates in one segment (HealthID). Since the sale of NationalCreditReport.com, the Company is not currently generating revenue.
 
2. Acquisitions
 
Easy Check Asset Purchase
 
In February 2010, the Company purchased the assets of Easy Check, which was comprised of the intellectual property related to the Easy Check breath glucose measurement device and the iglucose wireless communication system. The Company issued 300,000 shares of common stock in connection with the purchase with a fair value of $351,000 based on a stock price of $1.17 per share. The Company did not purchase any tangible assets from Easy Check.
 
In February 2011 the Company amended the purchase agreement and paid the seller of the assets an additional 200,000 shares of its common stock valued at $114,000, based on a stock price of $0.57 per share. The agreement lowered the potential royalty on future income from these products from 25% to 10%. The additional consideration was expensed as in-process research and development as the related projects had not yet reached technological feasibility at the time of the amendment.

MicroFluidic Acquisition
 
On May 23, 2011, the Company acquired all of the outstanding capital stock of MicroFluidic in a transaction accounted for using the purchase method of accounting (the “Acquisition”). Since MicroFluidic's inception, its key personnel have had an important role in developing technologies to automate the process of biological pathogen detection. MicroFluidic’s substantial portfolio of intellectual property related to sample preparation and rapid medical testing applications is complementary to the Company’s portfolio of virus detection and diabetes management products in development.
 
As consideration for the consummation of the Acquisition, the Company paid $250,000 to fund certain accounts payable of MicroFluidic (of which approximately $24,000 was paid to selling shareholders) and issued 2,375,000 shares of common stock of the Company (the “Stock Consideration”). The Company issued a total of 971,429 shares of common stock in 2011 to its advisors for brokerage services rendered in conjunction with the Acquisition. The Company incurred a nonrecurring charge in 2011 of approximately $550,000 related to the direct costs of the Acquisition, consisting of the $365,000 value of the shares of common stock issued to its advisors and $185,000 of cash costs. The Company issued an additional 460,150 shares of common stock to the advisors during the first quarter of 2012, pursuant to which a charge of approximately $69,000 was recorded.
 
In connection with the Acquisition, the Company is also required to make certain earn-out payments, up to a maximum of $7,000,000 payable in shares of the Company’s common stock, upon certain conditions over the next three years (the “Earn-Out Payment”). The earn-out for 2011 was based upon the value of contracts obtained by MicroFluidic through December 31, 2011, subject to a maximum Earn-Out Payment of $2,000,000. MicroFluidic did not obtain any contracts as of December 31, 2011 and thus no earn-out payment was required for 2011. The earn-out for years 2012-2014 is based on MicroFluidic achieving certain earnings targets for the respective year, subject to a maximum Earn-Out Payment of $2,000,000 per year and an overall cumulative maximum Earn-Out Payment of $7,000,000. However, the Company is prohibited from making any Earn-Out Payment until stockholder approval is obtained if the aggregate number of shares to be issued exceeds 19.99% of the Company’s common stock outstanding immediately prior to the closing. In the event the Company is unable to obtain any required stockholder approval, the Company is obligated to pay the applicable Earn-Out Payment in cash to the sellers. In addition, the Company may pay any applicable Earn-Out Payment in cash at its option.
 
The estimated purchase price of the Acquisition totaled approximately $1,653,000, comprised of (i) $24,000 in cash, (ii) Stock Consideration of $879,000 based on a stock price of $0.37 per share, and (iii) contingent consideration of approximately $750,000. The fair value of the contingent consideration was estimated based upon the present value of the probability-weighted expected future payouts under the earn-out arrangement. On October 31, 2011, the Company entered into an agreement with two of the selling MicroFluidic shareholders pursuant to which the two individuals waived their right to any earn-out compensation for 2011 in settlement of the closing working capital adjustment provisions of the purchase agreement. The two individuals represented approximately 68% of the selling shareholder interests, and thus any earn-out for 2011 was to be reduced by such percentage. As no earn-out was achieved for 2011, the fair value of the contingent consideration was reassessed and reduced to approximately $538,000 as of December 31, 2011, and remained unchanged as of March 31, 2012. 
 
Under the purchase method of accounting, the estimated purchase price of the Acquisition was allocated to MicroFluidic’s net tangible and identifiable intangible assets and liabilities assumed based on their estimated fair values as of the date of the completion of the Acquisition, as follows (in thousands):
 
Assets acquired:

The estimated fair values of certain assets and liabilities have been determined by management based upon a third-party valuation. The goodwill recorded in connection with the Acquisition is allocated to the Company’s HealthID segment, and no portion of the intangible assets, including goodwill, is expected to be deductible for tax purposes.

The pro forma financial information is not necessarily indicative of the results that would have occurred if the Acquisition had occurred on the date indicated or that may result in the future. The pro forma revenue reflected relates to revenue reported by MicroFluidic, substantially all of which was generated under two contracts with an agency of the U.S. Government. The two contracts were completed by March 31, 2011, and as of March 31, 2012 MicroFluidic had no active revenue-generating contracts. The pro forma results for the three months ended March 31, 2011 exclude a charge of approximately $550,000 related to the direct costs of the Acquisition, which is included in the Company’s 2011 results of operations for periods after the date of the Acquisition.
 
3. Discontinued Operations
 
Beginning at the end of 2010, in conjunction with the Company’s focus on its HealthID businesses, including the development of the GlucoChip, the Easy Check breath glucose detection system, and iglucose wireless communication system, the Company began to limit the activities of its ID Security segment, which included its wholly-owned NationalCreditReport.com subsidiary. In early 2011, the Company ceased acquiring new subscribers for its NationalCreditReport.com business, and in the second quarter of 2011 the Company began actively marketing the business for sale. On July 22, 2011, the Company completed the sale of substantially all of the assets of NationalCreditReport.com for $750,000 in cash. The buyer retained $75,000 from the purchase price pending the final determination of indemnification obligations for a period of eighteen months from the closing date. In connection with the decision to sell the NationalCreditReport.com business, the carrying value of the subsidiary’s net assets was written down to their estimated fair value, determined based upon the proceeds realized upon the sale in July 2011. As a result, an impairment of the carrying value of goodwill of approximately $555,000 was recognized during the second quarter of 2011.
 
Historical revenue related to the NationalCreditReport.com business and included in the income from discontinued operations in the accompanying condensed consolidated statement of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2011 totaled approximately $588,000.
  
4. Financing Agreements
 
Optimus Financing
 
On September 29, 2009, the Company entered into a Convertible Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Optimus Purchase Agreement”) with Optimus Technology Capital Partners, LLC (“Optimus”) under which Optimus was committed to purchase up to $10 million shares of convertible Series A Preferred Stock of the Company in one or more tranches.
 
To facilitate the transactions contemplated by the Optimus Purchase Agreement, R & R Consulting Partners, LLC (“R&R”), a company controlled by Scott R. Silverman, the Company’s former chairman and chief executive officer, loaned shares of common stock of the Company to Optimus equal to 135% of the aggregate purchase price for each tranche pursuant to stock loan agreements between R & R and Optimus. R & R was paid a $100,000 fee in October 2009 plus was to be paid 2% as interest for the fair value of the loaned shares for entering into the stock loan arrangement.  R & R could demand return of some or all of the borrowed shares (or an equal number of freely tradable shares of common stock) at any time on or after the six-month anniversary date such borrowed shares were loaned to Optimus, but no such demand could be made if there are any shares of Series A Preferred Stock then outstanding. If a permitted return demand was made, Optimus was required to return the borrowed shares (or an equal number of freely tradable shares of common stock) within three trading days after such demand. Optimus could return the borrowed shares in whole or in part, at any time or from time to time, without penalty or premium. On September 29, 2009, October 8, 2009, and October 21, 2009, R & R loaned Optimus 1.3 million, 800,000 and 600,000 shares, respectively, of Company common stock.

On September 29, 2009, the Company exercised the first tranche of the Optimus financing, pursuant to which it issued 296 shares of Series A Preferred Stock, for a purchase price of approximately $3.0 million. In support of this tranche, R & R loaned Optimus 1.3 million shares of common stock. The tranche closed on October 13, 2009, and the Company received proceeds of approximately $3.0 million, less the fees due on the entire financing commitment of $800,000. On November 5, 2009, the Company closed the second tranche of this financing, issuing 166 shares of Series A Preferred Stock, for a purchase price of approximately $1.7 million. In support of this tranche, R & R loaned Optimus approximately 1.4 million shares of common stock.
 
On May 12, 2010, R & R demanded the return of 2.7 million shares loaned to Optimus.  Also on May 12, 2010, the Company sent Optimus a notice of its election to convert all of the outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock into 2,729,452 shares of Company common stock.  Optimus returned these shares to R & R in repayment of the loan. The conversion of the Series A Preferred Stock was determined by a fixed conversion price that was determined at the time of the two tranche closings, which were approximately $3.07 and $1.60 per share, respectively. The Company was required to issue make-whole shares to Optimus equal to 35% of the Series A Liquidation Value ($10,000 per share of Series A Preferred Stock) because the Series A Preferred Stock was redeemed prior the first anniversary of the issuance date.  On October 13, 2010, the Company filed a Certificate of Elimination with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware effecting the elimination of the Certificate of Designation of Preferences, Rights and Limitations of Series A Preferred Stock.  No shares of Series A Preferred Stock remained outstanding as of December 31, 2010.
 
On March 14, 2011, the Company entered into an Amended and Restated Convertible Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Amended Optimus Purchase Agreement”) with Optimus. The Amended Optimus Purchase Agreement amended and restated the Optimus Purchase Agreement, and, among other things, specifically (i) replaced the Series A Preferred Stock issuable under the Purchase Agreement with Series C Preferred Stock with substantially similar terms, and (ii) reduced the maximum amount of preferred stock issuable to Optimus under the Optimus Purchase Agreement from $10 million to $8.7 million, of which $4.7 million was previously issued in 2009 as described above.
 
Under the terms of the Amended Optimus Purchase Agreement, from time to time and at the Company’s sole discretion, the Company could present Optimus with a notice to purchase shares of Series C Preferred Stock (the “Notice”).   Optimus was obligated to purchase such Series C Preferred Stock on the twentieth trading day after any Notice date, subject to satisfaction of certain closing conditions, including (i) that the Company is listed for and trading on a trading market, such as the Nasdaq or the over the counter bulletin board, (ii) the representations and warranties of the Company set forth in the Amended Optimus Purchase Agreement are true and correct as if made on each tranche date, and (iii) that no such purchase would result in Optimus and its affiliates beneficially owning more than 9.99% of the Company’s common stock. In the event the closing bid price of the Company’s common stock during any one or more of the nineteen trading days following the delivery of a Notice were to fall below 75% of the closing bid price on the trading day prior to the Notice date and Optimus determined not to complete the tranche closing, then the Company could, at its option, proceed to issue some or all of the applicable shares, provided that the conversion price for the Preferred Stock that is issued would reset at the lowest closing bid price for such nineteen trading day period.  
 
On March 14, 2011, the Company delivered a Notice to Optimus to sell 140 shares of Series C Preferred Stock for a purchase price of approximately $1.4 million. In support of this tranche, R & R loaned 2,729,452 shares, Mr. Silverman loaned 70,548 shares and William Caragol, the Company’s current chairman and chief executive officer, loaned 700,000 shares of Company common stock to Optimus (the “Loaned Shares”). On April 12, 2011, the tranche closed and the Company received proceeds of approximately $1.4 million, less $100,000 paid to Optimus to waive the requirement under the Amended Optimus Purchase Agreement that the conversion price of the Series C Preferred Stock issued in the tranche be reset at the lowest closing bid price for the nineteen trading days following the tranche notice date, which was March 14, 2011, due to the closing bid price of a share of the Company’s common stock falling below 75% during such nineteen trading day period.
 
On October 12, 2011, R & R, Mr. Caragol and Mr. Silverman demanded the return of the Loaned Shares from Optimus. Also on October 12, 2011, the Company sent Optimus a notice of its election to convert all of the outstanding shares of Series C Preferred Stock into 3,500,000 shares of common stock. The conversion of the Series C Preferred Stock was determined by a fixed conversion price that was determined at the time of the tranche closing, which was approximately $0.40 per share. On October 17, 2011, Optimus failed to return the Loaned Shares within three trading days of the demand by R & R, Mr. Silverman and Mr. Caragol as required under the terms of the Amended Optimus Purchase Agreement. No shares of Series C Preferred Stock remained outstanding as of December 31, 2011.

On January 27, 2012, the Company issued an aggregate of 3,500,000 shares of common stock to R & R Consulting Partners, LLC, Mr. Silverman and Mr. Caragol in exchange for the Loaned Shares. The securities that were originally issued upon conversion remain outstanding but have no voting, dividend, distribution or other rights of common stockholders. Further, Optimus has indicated in a public filing the absence of beneficial ownership of the 3,500,000 shares of common stock.  The Company believes that, while the transfer agent has not yet cancelled the original 3,500,000 shares, no requirements exist that legally prevent such cancellation from being effectuated.
 
The Company believes that the transactions undertaken with Optimus as discussed herein were in compliance with applicable securities laws at the time of the financing transactions, including Section 5 of the Securities Act. If a violation did occur in connection with Optimus' resale of the common stock it received in connection with these financings, security holders who purchased these securities would have certain remedies available to them, including the right to rescind the purchase of those securities within the applicable statute of limitations, which under the Securities Act is one year commencing on the date of violation of the federal registration requirements. The Company believes that the federal statute of limitations on sales of shares of the Company’s common stock has expired for sales made under the 2009 Optimus transactions, and that the federal statute of limitations on sales of shares of the Company’s common stock will expire in 2012 for sales made under the March 2011 Optimus transaction. Statutes of limitations under state laws vary by state, with the limitation time period under many state statutes not typically beginning until the facts giving rise to a violation are known. The Company is applying a contingency accounting model in determining whether a liability exists for this matter. Under this model, the Company evaluates whether a violation of the applicable securities laws has occurred resulting in a rescission right and whether a claim for a potential violation will be asserted. The Company has determined that there is a remote likelihood as to whether a violation has occurred. If the Company were required to pay security holders for rescission of their purchase of such securities, it could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial condition and results of operations. The Company is not presently able to accurately determine an estimated amount for any potential rescission liability associated with the resale of the loaned shares by Optimus in the event that the transaction were to be found to violate Section 5 of the Securities Act as it does not have knowledge of the amount and timing of such resales, nor information regarding the state or states in which such resales may have occurred. The Company believes that the range of prices at which Optimus sold the loaned shares was between $0.50-$3.22 per share related to the 2009 Optimus transactions and between $0.11-$0.63 per share related to the 2011 Optimus transaction. No adjustment has been made in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements related to the outcome of this contingency.
 
Socius Financing
 
On April 28, 2010, the Company entered into a Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Socius Preferred Purchase Agreement”) with Socius Capital Group, LLC, doing business as Socius Technology Capital Group, LLC (“Socius Technology”) under which Socius Technology was committed to purchase up to $4.2 million in shares of non-convertible Series B Preferred Stock of the Company (the “Preferred Stock”) in one or more tranches (each a “Preferred Tranche”), at $10,000 per share. Under the terms of the Socius Preferred Purchase Agreement, from time to time and at the Company’s sole discretion, the Company could present Socius Technology with a notice to purchase such Preferred Stock (“Preferred Notice”). Socius Technology was obligated to purchase such Series B Preferred Stock on the third trading day after the Preferred Notice date, subject to satisfaction of certain closing conditions, including (i) that the Company’s common stock is listed and trading on a trading market, (ii) the representations and warranties of the Company set forth in the Socius Preferred Purchase Agreement are true and correct as if made on each Preferred Tranche date, and (iii) Socius Technology shall have received a commitment fee of $105,000 payable on the first tranche closing date (collectively, the “Closing Conditions”).
 
Commencing on the date of issuance of any such shares of Series B Preferred Stock, holders of Series B Preferred Stock were entitled to receive dividends on each outstanding share of Series B Preferred Stock, which accrues in shares of Series B Preferred Stock at a rate equal to 10% per annum from the date of issuance. Accrued dividends were to be payable upon redemption of the Series B Preferred Stock.
 
On April 28, 2010, the Company also entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Socius Stock Agreement”) with Socius CG II, Ltd., a Bermuda exempted company (“Socius”) under which Socius was committed to purchase in connection with any Preferred Tranche, up to that number of shares of common stock equal in dollar amount to 100% of the applicable Preferred Tranche amount (the “Common Tranche”), at a per share price equal to the average of the individual daily volume weighted average price calculated over the ten trading days preceding the applicable tranche notice of the common stock on the date the Company provides notice of such tranche (the “Investment Price”). Under the Agreement, the Company also agreed to issue in connection with any Common Tranche, two-year warrants to purchase shares of common stock equal in dollar amount to 35% of the applicable Common Tranche, at an exercise price per share equal to the Investment Price.

Socius could pay the Investment Price for the common stock, at Socius’ option, in cash or a secured promissory note. Socius could pay the warrant exercise price, at Socius’ option, in cash, a secured promissory note, or, if applicable, by cashless exercise. The promissory note bears interest at 2.0% per year calculated on a simple interest basis. The entire principal balance and interest thereon was due and payable on the fourth anniversary of the date of the promissory note, but no payments were due so long as the Company was in default under the Socius Preferred Purchase Agreement or the warrants, or if there were any shares of Series B Preferred Stock issued or outstanding. The promissory note was secured by the borrower’s right, title and interest in all outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock and other securities with a fair market value equal to the principal amount of the promissory note. The Company’s right to deliver a tranche notice to Socius pursuant to the Agreement was subject to the Closing Conditions and also that no purchase would result in Socius and its affiliates beneficially owning more than 9.99% of the Company’s common stock. Unless the Company obtained stockholder approval or Socius obtained an opinion of counsel that stockholder approval was not required, Socius could not exercise a warrant if, as a result of such exercise, the aggregate number of shares of common stock issued upon exercise of all warrants it held plus the aggregate number of shares of common stock issued under the Socius Stock Agreement would exceed 19.99% of the Company’s outstanding common stock.
 
On April 29, 2010, the Company presented Socius Technology with a Preferred Notice to purchase $2.3 million of Series B Preferred Stock in a Preferred Tranche. Upon the closing of the Preferred Tranche, the Company issued 230 shares of Series B Preferred Stock. In connection with the Preferred Notice, the Company also presented Socius with a notice to purchase $2.3 million of common stock. The Company issued 1,716,417 shares of common stock at an Investment Price of $1.34 per share, paid in the form a secured promissory note, and warrants to purchase 600,746 shares of common stock to Socius, at an exercise price equal to the Investment Price of $1.34 per share, which warrants Socius exercised on April 29, 2010 and paid in the form of a secured promissory note. The promissory note was secured by the shares of Series B Preferred Stock issued to Socius.
 
On January 13, 2011, the Company presented Socius Technology with a Preferred Notice to purchase approximately $1.7 million of Series B Preferred Stock in a Preferred Tranche.  Upon the closing of the Preferred Tranche, the Company issued 168 shares of Series B Preferred Stock.

On January 28, 2011, the Company presented Socius Technology with a Preferred Notice to purchase approximately $0.2 million of Series B Preferred Stock in a Preferred Tranche.  Upon the closing of the Preferred Tranche, the Company issued 22 shares of Series B Preferred Stock. In connection with the Preferred Notice, the Company also presented Socius with a notice to purchase $0.2 million of common stock. The Company issued 285,714 shares of common stock at an Investment Price of $0.77 per share, paid in the form of a secured promissory note, and warrants to purchase 100,000 shares of common stock to Socius, at an exercise price equal to the Investment Price of $0.77 per share, which warrants Socius exercised on January 28, 2011 and paid in the form of a secured promissory note. The promissory note was secured by the shares of Series B Preferred Stock issued to Socius.
 
On May 11, 2011, the Company presented Socius with a notice of redemption of the 420 shares of Series B Preferred Stock held by Socius for a redemption price of $4.2 million and a premium for early redemption of $1.3 million. The consideration for the redemption was the cancelation of the promissory notes which were equal to the value of the Series B Preferred Stock held by Socius and any accrued dividends due and owing on the shares redeemed. On August 11, 2011, the Company filed a Certificate of Elimination with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware effecting the elimination of the Certificate of Designation of Preferences, Rights and Limitations of Series B Preferred Stock.

2011 Ironridge Financings
 
On July 27, 2011, the Company entered into a Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Series F Agreement”) with Ironridge Global III, LLC (“Ironridge Global”), under which Ironridge Global was committed to purchase for cash up to $1.5 million in shares of the Company’s redeemable, convertible Series F Preferred Stock (the “Series F Preferred Stock”) at $1,000 per share of Series F Preferred Stock.  The Series F Preferred Stock is convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at the option of the holder at a fixed conversion price of $0.50 per common share. The conversion price if the Company elects to convert the Series F Preferred Stock is subject to adjustment based on the market price of the Company's common stock and any applicable early redemption price at the time the Company converts.
 
The Company may redeem the Series F Preferred Stock, for cash or by an offset against any outstanding note receivable from Ironridge Global to the Company, as follows. The Company may redeem any or all of the Series F Preferred Stock at any time after the seventh anniversary of the issuance date at the redemption price per share, equal to $1,000 per share of Series F Preferred Stock, plus any accrued but unpaid dividends with respect to such shares of Series F Preferred Stock (the “Series F Liquidation Value”).  Prior to the seventh anniversary of the issuance of the Series F Preferred Stock, the Company may redeem the shares at any time after six months from the issuance date at a make-whole price per share equal to the following with respect to such redeemed Series F Preferred Stock: (i) 149.99% of the Series F Liquidation Value if redeemed prior to the first anniversary of the issuance date, (ii) 141.6% of the Series F Liquidation Value if redeemed on or after the first anniversary but prior to the second anniversary of the issuance date, (iii) 133.6% of the Series F Liquidation Value if redeemed on or after the second anniversary but prior to the third anniversary of the issuance date,  (iv) 126.1% of the Series F Liquidation Value if redeemed on or after the third anniversary but prior to the fourth anniversary of the issuance date, (v) 119.0% of the Series F Liquidation Value if redeemed on or after the fourth anniversary but prior to the fifth anniversary of the issuance date, (vi) 112.3% of the Series F Liquidation Value if redeemed on or after the fifth anniversary but prior to the sixth anniversary of the issuance date, and  (vii) 106.0% of the Series F Liquidation Value if redeemed on or after the sixth anniversary but prior to the seventh anniversary of the issuance date.
 
Ironridge Global's obligation to purchase the Series F Preferred Stock was subject to satisfaction of certain closing conditions, including (i) that the Company’s common stock is listed and trading on a trading market, (ii) no uncured default exists under the Series F Agreement, (iii) the Company’s representations and warranties set forth in the Series F Agreement are true and correct in all material respects; and (iv) the trading price of the Company’s common stock has not fallen below 70% of the closing price on the trading day immediately before the date it announced that it entered into the Series F Agreement (the “Condition”).
 
Under the terms of the Series F Agreement, as amended on August 12, 2011 (the “Waiver”), and from time to time and at the Company’s sole discretion, the Company may present Ironridge Global with a notice to purchase such Series F Preferred Stock.  Upon receipt of a notice, Ironridge Global was obligated to purchase the Series F Preferred Stock in installments as follows: (i) $500,000 on August 15, 2011; (ii) $500,000 on the earlier of (1) 20 trading days after August 15, 2011 and (2) the number of trading days necessary for an aggregate of $2.0 million of the Company’s common stock to trade on the Nasdaq Capital Market; and (iii) $500,000 on the earlier of (1) 20 trading days after the closing of the second tranche above, (2) the number of trading days necessary for an aggregate of $2.0 million of the Company’s common stock to trade on the Nasdaq Capital Market subsequent to the closing of the second tranche above, and (3) September 26, 2011, with the requirement that cash for that tranche be received by the Company on or before September 30, 2011. On August 15, 2011, Ironridge funded the first $500,000 installment, pursuant to which the Company issued 500 shares of Series F Preferred Stock to Ironridge.
 
On September 16, 2011, the Company entered into a First Amendment to Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement (the “First Amendment”) with Ironridge Global, which superseded the Waiver. Pursuant to the First Amendment, Ironridge was obligated to purchase the Series F Preferred Stock in installments as follows: (1) 130 preferred shares on the trading day (“First Closing”) following the later of (i) 10 trading days after September 7, 2011 and (ii) the trading day that aggregate trading volume of the Company's common stock after September 7, 2011, as reported by Bloomberg, equals or exceeds $500,000; (2) 290 preferred shares on the trading day (“Second Closing”) the earlier of (i) 10 trading days after the First Closing and (ii) the trading day that aggregate trading volume of the Company's common stock after the First Closing, as reported by Bloomberg, equals or exceeds $1 million; (3) 290 preferred shares on the trading day (“Third Closing”) following the earlier of (i) 10 trading days after the Second Closing and (ii) the trading day that aggregate trading volume of the Company's common stock after the Second Closing, as reported by Bloomberg, equals or exceeds $1 million; and (4) 290 preferred shares on the trading day (“Fourth Closing”) following the earlier of (i) 10 trading days after the Third Closing and (ii) the trading day that aggregate trading volume of the Company's common stock after the Third Closing, as reported by Bloomberg, equals or exceeds $1 million (each of the First, Second, Third and Fourth Closings, a “Purchase Closing”). Each of the respective time periods between each Purchase Closing and the prior Purchase Closing shall be the respective “Calculation Period.”

If the sole condition precedent to a Purchase Closing not satisfied is that the Condition is not met, the Company could, at its sole option, elect at any time to proceed with an alternate Purchase Closing, in which case, with respect to such Purchase Closing:
 
 
The Condition will not apply with respect to that Purchase Closing;
 
 
The Calculation Period will (i) commence on the trading day after Ironridge Global receives written notice of Company’s election, and (ii) exclude any trading day on which the Company’s common stock trades below $0.20 per share; and
 
 
The price per preferred share will be equal to the lesser of (a) $1,000, and (b) an amount equal to (i) $1,000, multiplied by (ii) 85% of the average of the daily volume-weighted average prices (the “VWAP”) during the Calculation Period, divided by (iii) $0.257.
 
Pursuant to the First Amendment, the price per preferred share with respect to the First Closing was equal to the lesser of: (a) $1,000; and (b) an amount, not below zero, equal to (i) $1,000, multiplied by (ii) 85% of the average of the VWAPs during the period between September 7, 2011 through the First Closing minus $0.20, divided by (iii) $0.057. The First Closing occurred on September 20, 2011, pursuant to which the Company issued 130 shares of Series F Preferred Stock to Ironridge for a nominal purchase price.
 
On November 14, 2011, the Second Closing occurred, pursuant to which the Company issued 290 shares of Series F Preferred Stock to Ironridge for a purchase price of approximately $193,000. On November 18, 2011, the Third Closing occurred, pursuant to which the Company issued 290 shares of Series F Preferred Stock to Ironridge for a purchase price of approximately $243,000. On December 5, 2011, the Fourth Closing occurred, pursuant to which the Company issued 290 shares of Series F Preferred Stock to Ironridge for a purchase price of approximately $188,000. Overall, the Company issued a total of 1,500 shares of Series F Preferred Stock to Ironridge under the Series F Agreement.
 
Through March 31, 2012, the Company had converted a total of 500 shares of Series F Preferred Stock, pursuant to which the Company issued a total of 8,335,822 shares of common stock to Ironridge. In connection with the conversions, the Company recorded a beneficial conversion dividend during the quarter ended March 31, 2012 totaling approximately $1.8 million, representing the excess of the fair value of the Company’s common stock at the date of issuance of the converted Series F Preferred Stock over the effective conversion rate, multiplied by the common shares issued upon conversion. Subsequent to March 31, 2012, the Company converted an additional 130 shares of Series F Preferred Stock, pursuant to which the Company issued a total of 3,107,940 shares of common stock to Ironridge.
 
On July 27, 2011, the Company also entered into a Common Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Common Stock Agreement”) with Ironridge Global Technology, a division of Ironridge Global IV, Ltd. (“Ironridge”), under which the Company could deliver a notice to Ironridge exercising its right to require Ironridge to purchase shares up to $2.5 million of its common stock at a price per share equal to $0.367.  The purchase price was equal to 102% of the per share closing bid price of the Company’s common stock as reported on the Nasdaq Capital Market on the trading day immediately before the date the Company announced that it entered into the Common Stock Agreement, which was July 27, 2011.  
 
Ironridge could pay the purchase price for the shares, at Ironridge's option, in cash or a secured promissory note, except that at least $250,000 of the purchase price was required to be paid in cash. The promissory note bears interest at 1.6% per year calculated on a simple interest basis. The entire principal balance and interest thereon is due and payable seven and one-half years from the date of the promissory note, but no payments are due so long as the Company is in default under the Common Stock Agreement or the Series F Agreement or if there are any shares of Series F Preferred Stock issued or outstanding. The promissory note is secured by Ironridge's right, title and interest in all shares legally or beneficially owned by Ironridge or an affiliate, common stock and other securities with a fair market value equal to the principal amount of the promissory note.
 
The Company’s right to deliver a tranche notice to Ironridge pursuant to the Common Stock Agreement was subject to satisfaction of certain closing conditions, including (i) that the Company’s common stock is listed and trading on a trading market, (ii) no uncured default exists under the Common Stock Agreement, and (iii) the Company’s representations and warranties set forth in the Common Stock Agreement are true and correct in all material respects.  The Company may not deliver a notice to Ironridge to purchase shares of its common stock if the total number of shares of common stock owned or deemed beneficially owned by Ironridge and its affiliates would result in Ironridge owning or being deemed to beneficially own more than 9.99% of all such common stock and other voting securities as would be outstanding on the date of exercise.

POSITIVEID CORPORATION
Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
 
On July 28, 2011, the Company presented Ironridge with a notice to purchase $2.5 million of its common stock under the Common Stock Agreement.  Ironridge Global paid $250,000 in cash and the remaining $2.25 million in a promissory note, the terms of which are described above.  The Company issued an aggregate of 6,811,989 shares of its common stock to Ironridge in connection with the July 28, 2011 notice. No further shares may be sold under the Common Stock Agreement. In connection with the conversions of Series F Preferred Stock discussed above, a total of $0.6 million of the promissory note was repaid through March 31, 2012, and an additional $345,000 has been repaid subsequent to March 31, 2012.
 
2012 Ironridge Financings
 
On January 13, 2012, the Company, entered into a Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Series H Agreement”) with Ironridge, under which Ironridge was committed to purchase for cash $500,000 in shares of the Company’s redeemable, convertible Series H Preferred Stock (the “Series H Preferred Stock”) at $1,000 per share of Series H Preferred Stock.
 
Each share of Series H Preferred Stock is convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at any time by the holder at a conversion price of $0.15 per share. The Series H Preferred Stock will accrue dividends in the amount of 4.5% per annum, subject to increase if the closing price of the Company’s common stock falls below $0.125 per share, up to a maximum rate of 10% per annum. The dividends are payable quarterly, at the Company’s option, in cash or shares of the Company’s common stock. The holder of the Series H Preferred Stock may convert the Series H Preferred Stock into shares of the Company’s common stock at any time at an initial conversion price of $0.15 per share plus a make-whole adjustment equal to accrued but unpaid dividends and dividends that otherwise would be due through the tenth anniversary of the Series H Preferred Stock. The Company may convert the Series H Preferred Stock if the closing price of the Company’s common stock exceeds 200% of the conversion price, and certain other conditions are met. The holder will be prohibited, however, from converting the Series H Preferred Stock into shares of the Company’s common stock if, as a result of such conversion, the holder together with its affiliates, would own more than 9.99% of the total number of shares of the Company’s common stock then issued and outstanding.
 
The Company may redeem any or all of the Series H Preferred Stock for cash at any time after the tenth anniversary of the issuance date at the redemption price per share, equal to $1,000 per share of Series H Stock, plus any accrued but unpaid dividends with respect to such shares of Series H Preferred Stock (the “Series H Liquidation Value”). Prior to the tenth anniversary of the issuance of the Series H Stock, the Company may, at its option, redeem the shares at any time after the issuance date at a price per share equal to the Series H Liquidation Value plus the total cumulative amount of dividends that otherwise would have been payable through the tenth anniversary of the issuance date, less any dividends that have been paid.
 
Ironridge's obligation to purchase the Series H Preferred Stock was subject to satisfaction of certain closing conditions, including (i) that the Company’s common stock is listed for and trading on a trading market, (ii) no uncured default exists under the Series H Agreement, and (iii) the Company’s representations and warranties set forth in the Series H Agreement are true and correct in all material respects. On January 17, 2012, Ironridge funded the $500,000 purchase price, pursuant to which the Company issued 500 shares of Series H Preferred Stock to Ironridge. Through March 31, 2012, Ironridge had converted a total of 341 shares of Series H Preferred Stock, pursuant to which the Company issued a total of 3,803,667 shares of common stock to Ironridge. In connection with the conversions, the Company recorded a beneficial conversion dividend during the quarter ended March 31, 2012 totaling approximately $0.2 million, representing the excess of the fair value of the Company’s common stock at the date of issuance of the converted Series H Preferred Stock over the effective conversion rate, multiplied by the common shares issued upon conversion.
 
Authorized Common Stock
 
As of December 31, 2011, the Company was authorized to issue 70 million shares of common stock, $0.01 par value. On January 27, 2012, the Company’s stockholders approved an increase in the number of authorized shares of common stock of the Company from 70 million shares to 175 million shares.
 
5. Stock-Based Compensation
 
On August 26, 2011, the Company’s stockholders approved and adopted the PositiveID Corporation 2011 Stock Incentive Plan (the “2011 Plan”). The 2011 Plan provides for awards of incentive stock options, nonqualified stock options, restricted stock awards, performance units, performance shares, SARs and other stock-based awards to employees and consultants.

The Black-Scholes model, which the Company uses to determine compensation expense, requires the Company to make several key judgments including:
 
 
the value of the Company’s common stock;
 
 
the expected life of issued stock options;
 
 
the expected volatility of the Company’s stock price;
 
 
the expected dividend yield to be realized over the life of the stock option; and
 
 
the risk-free interest rate over the expected life of the stock options.
 
The Company’s computation of the expected life of issued stock options was determined based on historical experience of similar awards giving consideration to the contractual terms of the stock-based awards, vesting schedules and expectations about employees’ future length of service. The interest rate was based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant. The computation of volatility was based on the historical volatility of the Company’s common stock.

The Company recorded compensation expense related to stock options and restricted stock of approximately $589,000 and $970,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.
 
  6. Income Taxes
 
The Company had an effective tax rate of nil for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011. The Company incurred losses before taxes for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011. However, it has not recorded a tax benefit for the resulting net operating loss carryforwards, as the Company has determined that a full valuation allowance against its net deferred tax assets was appropriate based primarily on its historical operating results.
 
In July 2008, the Company completed the sale of all of the outstanding capital stock of Xmark to Stanley Canada Corporation (“Stanley”). In January 2010, Stanley received a notice from the Canadian Revenue Agency (“CRA”) that the CRA would be performing a review of Xmark’s Canadian tax returns for the periods 2005 through 2008. The Company has complied with all of Stanley’s information requests. This review covers all periods that the Company owned Xmark.

Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
 
In February 2011, and as revised on November 9, 2011, Stanley received a notice from the CRA that the CRA completed its review of the Xmark returns and was questioning certain deductions attributable to allocations from related companies on the tax returns under review. In November and December 2011, the CRA and the Ministry of Revenue of the Province of Ontario issued notices of reassessment confirming the proposed adjustments. The total amount of the income tax reassessments for the 2006-2008 tax years, including both provincial and federal reassessments, plus interest, was approximately $1.4 million. In addition, on March 28, 2012 Stanley received assessments for withholding taxes on deemed dividend payments in respect of the disallowed management fees totaling approximately $0.2 million.
 
On January 20, 2012, the Company received an indemnification claim notice from Stanley related to the matter. The Company does not agree with the position taken by the CRA, and filed a formal appeal related to the matter on March 8, 2012. In connection with the filing of the appeal, Stanley was required to remit an upfront payment of a portion of the tax reassessment totaling approximately $950,000. The Company has agreed to repay Stanley for the upfront payment, plus interest at the rate of five percent per annum, in 24 equal monthly payments beginning on June 1, 2012. To the extent that the Company and Stanley reach a successful resolution of the matter through the appeals process, the upfront payment (or a portion thereof) will be returned to Stanley or the Company as applicable.  Based on the Company’s review of the correspondence and evaluation of the supporting detail, it does not believe that the ultimate resolution of this matter will have a material negative impact on the Company’s historical tax liabilities or results of operations. The Company had established an accrual of $400,000 for this contingency as of December 31, 2011, which management believes is adequate. In connection with the upfront payment made by Stanley, this accrual was reclassified to a liability to Stanley, and a prepaid tax advance to Stanley in the amount of $550,000 was recorded as of March 31, 2012.
 
7. Legal Proceedings
 
The Company is a party to certain legal actions, as either plaintiff or defendant, arising in the ordinary course of business, none of which is expected to have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition or results of operations. However, litigation is inherently unpredictable, and the costs and other effects of pending or future litigation, governmental investigations, legal and administrative cases and proceedings, whether civil or criminal, settlements, judgments and investigations, claims or charges in any such matters, and developments or assertions by or against the Company relating to the Company or to the Company’s intellectual property rights and intellectual property licenses could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and operating results.
 
8.   Employment Contracts and Stock Compensation to Related Parties
  
On September 30, 2011, the Company entered into a First Amendment to Employment and Non-Compete Agreement (the “First Silverman Amendment”) with Mr. Silverman in connection with Mr. Silverman’s ceasing to be the Company’s Chief Executive Officer. The First Silverman Amendment amended the Employment and Non-Compete Agreement dated November 11, 2010 between the Company and Mr. Silverman and provided for, among other things, the issuance of restricted stock of the Company to Mr. Silverman in the aggregate amount of approximately $3.4 million (the “Restricted Stock”) in lieu of contractually-committed cash salary and bonus for 2012 through 2015. The Restricted Stock was to be issued based upon the average daily volume-weighted average price of the Company’s common stock for the five trading days preceding the date of the First Silverman Amendment. The Restricted Stock was subject to registration rights and price protection provisions, and was to be granted upon the earlier of (i) a reverse stock split or (ii) the receipt of stockholder approval to increase the number of authorized shares of common stock of the Company to at least 175 million shares. The Restricted Stock was price protected through the date on which the registration statement registering such shares becomes effective, such that if the value of the Restricted Stock at such time is less than the average daily volume-weighted average price of the Company’s common stock for the five trading days preceding the date of the First Silverman Amendment, additional shares will be issued to subsidize any shortfall. In connection with the execution of the First Silverman Amendment, a non-cash charge of approximately $3.4 million was recorded in the third quarter of 2011, for which a corresponding liability had been established in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2011. On January 27, 2012, the Company issued the Restricted Stock to Mr. Silverman, totaling 18.1 million shares.
 
On December 6, 2011, the Compensation Committee approved an Amended and Restated Employment, Consulting and Non-Compete Agreement (the “Amended and Restated Agreement”) between the Company and Mr. Silverman in connection with Mr. Silverman’s negotiated departure from the Board of Directors of the Company as of December 6, 2011 and his continued service as consultant to the Company until March 1, 2012. The Amended and Restated Agreement amends and restates the Employment and Non-Compete Agreement dated November 11, 2010 between the Company and Mr. Silverman and the First Silverman Amendment, and provides for, among other things, clarification of the terms of Mr. Silverman’s separation from the Company and continued vesting of Mr. Silverman’s unvested stock grants. The Company also granted Mr. Silverman a security interest in substantially all of the Company’s assets (the “Security Agreement”) until such time as the stock obligations under the Amended and Restated Agreement were fulfilled.

Under the Amended and Restated Agreement, the Company agreed to satisfy certain contractual obligations totaling approximately $462,000, which was recorded in accrued liabilities at December 31, 2011 (the “Contractual Obligations”), through the issuance of 2,468,118 shares of common stock from the 2011 Plan to Mr. Silverman (the “Contractual Obligations Stock”) on January 2, 2012. On January 2, 2012, the Company issued the Contractual Obligations Stock to Mr. Silverman. The Company filed a registration statement on Form S-1 for resale of the Restricted Stock (the “Registration Statement”) with the SEC on January 31, 2012, as amended on February 2, 2012 and as further amended on February 13, 2012.
 
On March 23, 2012, the Board of Directors approved a First Amendment to the Amended and Restated Agreement (the “First Amendment to Amended and Restated Employment Agreement”) between the Company and Mr. Silverman in connection with the elimination of any and all price protection provisions under the Amended and Restated Agreement and any other further registration rights obligations. Under the First Amendment to Amended and Restated Agreement, the Company agreed to issue 13.5 million shares of restricted stock of the Company to Mr. Silverman on March 23, 2012 (the “Price Protection Shares”). The Price Protection Shares were issued in order to (i) eliminate any and all price protection provisions under the Amended and Restated Agreement, including, but not limited to, any price protection provisions relating to a reverse stock split, and (ii) any further registration rights obligations.  The Price Protection Shares were included on a pre-effective amendment to the Registration Statement filed with the SEC on March 28, 2012, which Registration Statement went effective on April 10, 2012. Upon effectiveness of the Registration Statement, the Security Agreement terminated. In connection with the issuance of the Price Protection Shares, a non-cash charge of approximately $1.5 million was recorded in the fourth quarter of 2011, based on the fair value of the shares at the date of issuance and for which a corresponding liability had been established in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2011.
 
On December 6, 2011, the Compensation Committee approved a First Amendment to Employment and Non-Compete Agreement (the “First Caragol Amendment”) between the Company and Mr. Caragol in connection with Mr. Caragol’s assumption of the position of Chairman of the Board of the Company effective December 6, 2011. The First Caragol Amendment amends the Employment and Non-Compete Agreement dated November 11, 2010, between the Company and Mr. Caragol and provides for, among other things, the elimination of any future guaranteed raises and bonuses, other than a 2011 bonus of $375,000 to be paid beginning January 1, 2012 in twelve (12) equal monthly payments. If in the reasonable discretion of the Board, the Company is unable to make the scheduled cash bonus payments, the Company shall have the option of (i) delaying payment(s), (ii) paying Mr. Caragol in restricted stock of the Company, or (iii) reaching some other mutually agreeable resolution with Mr. Caragol. The First Caragol Amendment obligates the Company to grant to Mr. Caragol an aggregate of 12.5 million shares of restricted stock over a four-year period as follows: (i) 2.5 million shares upon execution of the First Caragol Amendment, which shall vest on January 1, 2014, (ii) 2.5 million shares on January 1, 2012, which shall vest on January 1, 2015, (iii) 2.5 million shares on January 1, 2013, which shall vest on January 1, 2015, (iv) 2.5 million shares on January 1, 2014, which shall vest on January 1, 2016, and (v) 2.5 million shares on January 1, 2015, which shall vest on January 1, 2016. The Company and Mr. Caragol have agreed to delay the issuance of the first and second restricted share grants, for a total of 5 million shares, until the Company has available shares under a stock incentive plan. Stock compensation expense related to the first and second restricted share grants totaled approximately $86,000for the quarter ended March 31, 2012, and for which a total liability of approximately $101,000 has been reflected in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2012.
 
9.   Sale of Subsidiary to Related Party
 
On January 11, 2012, the Company contributed certain assets and liabilities related to its VeriChip business, as well as all of the assets and liabilities relating to its Health Link business, to its wholly-owned subsidiary, PositiveID Animal Health (“Animal Health”).  The Company had ceased actively marketing the VeriChip business in January 2008 and the Health Link business in September 2010.  The term “VeriChip business” does not include the GlucoChip or any product or application involving blood glucose detection or diabetes management.
 
On January 11, 2012, VeriTeQ Acquisition Corporation (“VeriTeQ”), which is owned and controlled by Mr. Silverman, purchased all of the outstanding capital stock of Animal Health in exchange for a secured promissory note in the amount of $200,000 (the “Note”) and 4 million shares of common stock of VeriTeQ representing a 10% ownership interest, to which no value was ascribed. The Note accrues interest at 5% per annum. Payments under the Note begin January 11, 2013 and are due and payable monthly, and the Note matures on January 11, 2015. The Note is secured by substantially all of the assets of Animal Health pursuant to a Security Agreement dated January 11, 2012. The Company has not recorded the Note or any accrued interest in its balance sheet as of March 31, 2012, and currently plans to recognize the $200,000 gain represented by the Note as the Note is collected.

In connection with the sale, the Company entered into a license agreement with VeriTeQ (the “License Agreement”) which grants VeriTeQ a license to utilize the Company’s bio-sensor implantable RFID patent for the purpose of designing and constructing, using, selling and offering to sell products or services related to the VeriChip business, but excluding the GlucoChip or any product or application involving blood glucose detection or diabetes management.  Pursuant to the License Agreement, the Company will receive royalties in the amount of 10% on all gross revenues arising out of or relating to VeriTeQ’s sale of products, whether by license or otherwise, specifically relating to the patent, and a royalty of 20% on gross revenues that are generated under the Development and Supply Agreement between the Company and Medical Components, Inc. (“Medcomp”) dated April 2, 2009. The Company’s right to the Medcomp royalty payments will terminate three years following written clearance by the FDA of the Medcomp product that incorporates the VeriChip product.
 
The Company also entered into a shared services agreement with VeriTeQ on January 11, 2012 (the “Shared Services Agreement”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to provide certain services to VeriTeQ in exchange for $30,000 per month.  The term of the Shared Services Agreement commenced on January 23, 2012. The first payment for such services is not payable until VeriTeQ receives gross proceeds of a financing of at least $500,000. The balance due from VeriTeQ under the Shared Services Agreement, including certain expenses paid by the Company on behalf of VeriTeQ, totaled approximately $115,000 as of March 31, 2012, which has not been recorded in the Company’s balance sheet as of March 31, 2012 and will be recorded on a cash basis as collected.

All forward-looking statements attributable to us, or persons acting on our behalf, are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and under the section entitled “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K/A for the year ended December 31, 2011. These are factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from expected results. Other factors besides those listed could also adversely affect us.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.
 
The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the accompanying financial statements and related notes included in Item 1 of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q as well as our Annual Report on Form 10-K/A for the year ended December 31, 2011.
 
Overview

We have historically developed, marketed and sold RFID systems used for the identification of people in the healthcare market.  Beginning in early 2011, we have focused our strategy on the growth of our HealthID business, including the continued development of our GlucoChip, our Easy Check breath glucose detection device, our iglucose wireless communication system, and potential strategic acquisition opportunities of businesses that are complementary to our HealthID business.
 
In May 2011 and consistent with this strategy, we acquired MicroFluidic Systems (“MicroFluidic”), pursuant to which MicroFluidic became our wholly-owned subsidiary.  MicroFluidic specializes in the production of automated instruments for a wide range of applications in the detection and processing of biological samples, ranging from rapid medical testing to airborne pathogen detection for homeland security. MicroFluidic’s substantial portfolio of intellectual property related to sample preparation and rapid medical testing applications are complementary to our portfolio of virus detection and diabetes management products. Since its inception, MicroFluidic has received over $45 million in U.S. Government contracts, primarily from the Department of Homeland Security ("DHS"). Since our acquisition of MicroFluidic, we have submitted, or are in the process of submitting, bids on various potential U.S. Government contracts, and are planning to pursue the DHS’s third generation BioWatch program (for the development of networked, autonomous, bioagent detection systems).  DHS has estimated the first contract period to be five years and has projected the request for proposal for this program will be issued during the third quarter of 2012.
 
HealthID Business
 
Our HealthID business is currently focused on the development and commercialization of three products: (1) the GlucoChip, a glucose-sensing microchip, based on our proprietary intellectual property which is being developed in conjunction with Receptors LLC, or Receptors, (2) iglucose , a stand-alone, self-contained unit that automatically queries a diabetic user’s data-capable glucometer for blood glucose data and sends that data via machine-to-machine technology to the iglucose online database, and (3) Easy Check, a non-invasive breath glucose detection system, based on the correlation of acetone in exhaled breath to blood glucose levels.
 
In July 2011, we submitted a 510(k) pre-market notification application for our iglucose wireless communication system to the FDA. In November 2011, we obtained FDA clearance for iglucose . In the first quarter of 2012, we launched initial deployments of iglucose through trial programs with a leading health insurer and two other healthcare companies and began taking pre-orders for iglucose from consumers. We expect to enter into a contract for the manufacturing of iglucose in the near future and fully launch iglucose commercially in the second quarter of 2012.
 
Through the end of 2011, our HealthID business also included the VeriMed system, which uses an implantable passive RFID microchip that is used in patient identification applications. Each implantable microchip contains a unique verification number that is read when it is scanned by our scanner. In October 2004, the FDA cleared our VeriMed system for use in medical applications in the United States. We had not actively marketed the VeriMed system since early 2008.
 
On January 11, 2012, we contributed certain assets and liabilities related to the VeriChip business, as well as all of our assets and liabilities relating to our Health Link business, which is a patient-controlled, online repository to store personal health information, to our wholly-owned subsidiary Animal Health.  We ceased actively marketing the VeriChip business in January 2008 and the Health Link business in September 2010. The term “VeriChip business” does not include the GlucoChip or any product or application involving blood glucose detection or diabetes management.
 
On January 11, 2012, VeriTeQ, which is owned and controlled by Scott Silverman, our former chairman and chief executive officer, purchased all of the outstanding capital stock of Animal Health in exchange for a secured promissory note in the amount of $200,000 and 4 million shares of common stock of VeriTeQ representing a 10% ownership interest.  In connection with the sale, we entered into the License Agreement with VeriTeQ dated January 11, 2012, which grants VeriTeQ a license to utilize our bio-sensor implantable RFID device that is protected under United States Patent No. 7,125,382, “Embedded Bio Sensor System,” for the purpose of designing and constructing, using, selling and offering to sell products or services related to the VeriChip business, but excluding the GlucoChip or any product or application involving blood glucose detection or diabetes management.  We will receive royalties in the amount of 10% on all gross revenues arising out of or relating to VeriTeQ’s sale of products, whether by license or otherwise, specifically relating to the patent, and a royalty of 20% on gross revenues that are generated under the Development and Supply Agreement between us and Medcomp, dated April 2, 2009.  Our right to the Medcomp royalty payments terminates three years following written clearance by the United States Food and Drug Administration of the Medcomp product that incorporates the VeriChip product.

ID Security Business
 
 Our ID Security business included our Identity Security suite of products, sold through the NationalCreditReport.com brand and our Health Link PHR business. We acquired the NationalCreditReport.com business in conjunction with the acquisition of Steel Vault in November 2009. NationalCreditReport.com offered consumers a variety of identity security products and services primarily on a subscription basis. These services helped consumers protect themselves against identity theft or fraud and understand and monitor their credit profiles and other personal information, which included credit reports, credit monitoring and credit scores. Beginning in early 2011, we ceased acquiring new subscribers to the identity security and credit reporting businesses, and on July 22, 2011, we completed the sale of the identity security and credit reporting business for total consideration of $750,000.
 
As a result of our sale of the NationalCreditReport.com business in July 2011, we now operate in one segment and are not currently generating revenue.  
 
Results of Operations
 
Overview
 
In connection with our decision to sell the NationalCreditReport.com business in the second quarter of 2011, we have presented its results of operations as discontinued operations in our condensed consolidated statements of operations for all periods presented in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Since the sale of NationalCreditReport.com, we are not currently generating revenue.
 
Three Months Ended March 31, 2012 Compared to Three Months Ended March 31, 2011
 
Revenue and Gross Profit
 
We reported no revenue or gross profit from continuing operations for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011. Until one or more of the products under development in our HealthID segment is successfully brought to market, we do not anticipate generating significant revenue or gross profit. Further, MicroFluidic reported no revenue or gross profit during the period from the date of our acquisition of MicroFluidic on May 23, 2011 through March 31, 2012 as it had no active contracts during this period. MicroFluidic has submitted, or is the process of submitting, bids on various potential new U.S. Government contracts; however, there can be no assurance that we will be successful in obtaining any such new or other contracts.
 
Selling, General and Administrative Expense
 
Selling, general and administrative expense consists primarily of compensation for employees in executive, sales, marketing and operational functions, including finance and accounting and corporate development, and also including stock-based compensation. Other significant costs include depreciation and amortization, professional fees for accounting and legal services, consulting fees and facilities costs.
 
Selling, general and administrative expense increased by approximately $0.2 million, or 7%, for the three months ended March 31, 2012 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011. The increase was primarily attributable to incremental expense from the MicroFluidic operations and amortization of intangible assets related to the MicroFluidic acquisition, offset in part by a decrease in stock-based compensation for the period.
 
Stock-based compensation included in selling, general and administrative expense totaled approximately $0.7 million and $0.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.
 
Research and Development
 
Our research and development expense consists primarily of costs associated with various projects, including testing, developing prototypes and related expenses. Our research and development costs include payments to our project partners and acquisition of in-process research and development.  We seek to structure our research and development on a project basis to allow the management of costs and results on a discreet, short-term project basis.  This may result in quarterly expenses that rise and fall depending on the underlying project status.  We expect this method of managing projects to allow us to minimize our firm fixed commitments at any given point in time.
 
 
23

 
 
Research and development expense decreased by approximately $0.3 million, or 70%, for the three months ended March 31, 2012 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011. The decrease was primarily attributable to a decrease in stock-based compensation to consultants and our research and development project partners and a decrease in expensed in-process research and development.
 
Stock-based compensation included in research and development expense totaled $0 and approximately $0.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.
 
Income from Discontinued Operations
 
Income from discontinued operations relates to the NationalCreditReport.com business sold in July 2011, and totaled approximately $0.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011. Historical revenue related to the NationalCreditReport.com business and included in income from discontinued operations for the three months ended March 31, 2011 totaled approximately $0.6 million.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
As of March 31, 2012, cash and cash equivalents totaled approximately $144,000 compared to cash and cash equivalents of approximately $28,000 at December 31, 2011.
 
Cash Flows from Operating Activities
 
Net cash used in operating activities totaled approximately $0.8 million and $1.5 million during the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively, primarily to fund operating losses. Net cash used in discontinued operations was approximately $0.1 million during the three months ended March 31, 2011.

Cash Flows from Investing Activities
 
Net cash used in investing activities was not significant for the three months ended March 31, 2012 or 2011.
 
Cash Flows from Financing Activities
 
Financing activities provided cash of approximately $1.0 million and $1.9 million during the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively, primarily related to proceeds from the issuance of preferred stock under the Socius financing agreement in the 2011 period, and from the issuance of Series H Preferred Stock to Ironridge and conversion of Series F Preferred Stock and related repayment of the Ironridge note receivable in the 2012 period.

Financial Condition
 
As of March 31, 2012, we had a working capital deficiency of approximately $2.7 million and an accumulated deficit of approximately $90 million, compared to working capital deficiency of approximately $2.7 million and an accumulated deficit of approximately $86 million as of December 31, 2011. We have incurred operating losses prior to and since the merger that created PositiveID. The current operating losses are the result of selling, general and administrative expenses and research and development expenses. We expect our operating losses to continue through at least 2012.
 
Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon our ability to obtain financing to fund the continued development of our HealthID products, the operations of MicroFluidic, and working capital requirements. Until we are able to achieve operating profits, we will continue to seek to access the capital markets.  Since December 31, 2010, we have raised approximately $3.3 million under the Socius and Optimus financing facilities. In July 2011, we executed an equity financing with Ironridge that has provided funding of approximately $2.3 million. Additionally, in January 2012 we raised approximately $0.4 million from the sale of preferred stock to Ironridge. Based on our current monthly cash burn of approximately $0.3 million and assuming we generate no revenue or operating profits, we require additional funding of approximately $3.5 million to continue operations at current levels for the next twelve months.
 
 
24

 

On August 31, 2011 we received notification that our stock was being delisted from the Nasdaq Capital Market (“Nasdaq”) and on September 1, 2011 our stock began trading on the OTC Bulletin Board. The delisting from Nasdaq could adversely affect the market liquidity of our common stock and harm the business and may hinder or delay our ability to consummate potential strategic transactions or investments. Such delisting could also adversely affect our ability to obtain financing for the continuation of our operations and could result in the loss of confidence by investors, suppliers and employees.
 
These conditions raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. We intend to continue to access capital to provide funds to meet our working capital requirements for the near-term future. In addition and if necessary, we could reduce and/or delay certain discretionary research, development and related activities and costs. However, there can be no assurances that we will be able to derive sufficient funding or be successful in negotiating additional sources of equity or credit for our long-term capital needs.  Our inability to have access to such financing at reasonable costs could materially and adversely impact our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows, and result in significant dilution to our existing stockholders. Our condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability of assets and classification of assets and liabilities that might be necessary should we be unable to continue as a going concern.
 
Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.
 
As a “Smaller Reporting Company,” we are not required to provide the information required by this item.
 
Item 4. Controls and Procedures.
 
Disclosure Controls and Procedures
 
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls . We evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our “disclosure controls and procedures” as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) as of March 31, 2012. This evaluation (the “disclosure controls evaluation”) was done under the supervision and with the participation of management, including the person(s) performing the function of our chief executive officer (“CEO”) and chief financial officer (“CFO”). Rules adopted by the SEC require that in this section of our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q we present the conclusions of the CEO and CFO about the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2012 based on the disclosure controls evaluation.
 
Objective of Controls. Our disclosure controls and procedures are designed so that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed under the Exchange Act, such as this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Our disclosure controls and procedures are also intended to ensure that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including the CEO and CFO, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. There are inherent limitations to the effectiveness of any system of disclosure controls and procedures, including the possibility of human error and the circumvention or overriding of the controls and procedures. Accordingly, even effective disclosure controls and procedures can only provide reasonable assurance of achieving their control objectives, and management necessarily is required to use its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible disclosure controls and procedures.
 
Conclusion . Based upon the disclosure controls evaluation, our CEO and CFO have concluded that, as of March 31, 2012, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective to provide reasonable assurance that the foregoing objectives are achieved.
 
Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
 
There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting identified in connection with the evaluation required by paragraph (d) of Rule 13a-15 under the Exchange Act that occurred during the quarter ended March 31, 2012 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Item 1. Legal Proceedings.

We are a party to certain legal actions, as either plaintiff or defendant, arising in the ordinary course of business, none of which is expected to have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition or results of operations.

Re: Appeal of CRA Tax Assessment and Loan of Tax Payment in Respect of Part I Income Tax Assessment

Dear Sir:

This letter is intended to be a non-binding analysis and discussion relating to certain global settlement issues that have been discussed between the parties over the past few weeks. Except in relation to repayment of the Loan, each of the parties expressly reserves its rights and defenses that it may have, contractually and under law and equity, to pursue or take any action or assert any position that may be inconsistent with or contrary to any of the statements or positions reflected herein.

We refer to the Stock Purchase Agreement entered into between Stanley Black & Decker, Inc. (then known as The Stanley Works) (“ Purchaser ”) and PositiveID Corporation (then known as VeriChip Corporation ) (“ Seller ”) relating to the sale and purchase of XMark Corporation (the “ Company” ) and dated as of May 15, 2008 (the “ Purchase Agreement ”). Unless otherwise indicated, capitalized terms that are not defined herein have the meanings assigned to them in the Purchase Agreement.

The Canada Revenue Agency (“ CRA ”) has been conducting an audit (the “ Audit ”) of the Company's tax years ended December 31, 2006 and 2007, and July 17, 2008. The tax issues raised in the Audit related to a Part I income tax adjustment due to disallowed management fees and the alleged under-statement of non-deductible meals and entertainment expenses , as well as a Part XIII withholding tax imposed on deemed dividend payments in respect of the disallowed management fees. On November 9,2011, our representative received a revised proposal of adjustment from the CRA with respect to the Part I income tax issues, and a potential assessment with respect to the Part XIII withholding tax issues.

The CRA and the Ministry of Revenue of the Province of Ontario (the “ Ministry ”) issued notices of reassessment, along with explanations and calculations of interest, confirming the proposed adjustments. The CRA Notices of Reassessment for the December 31, 2006 and December 31, 2007 taxation years were dated December 9, 2011. The CRA Notice of Reassessment for the July 17, 2008 taxation year was dated December 12, 2011. The Ontario Notices of Reassessment for the aforementioned taxation years were dated November 16, 2011 and were specified assessments which rely on the CRA Notices of Reassessment and for which no objection is permitted. The total net amount of the Part I income tax reassessments for the Company's taxation years ended December 31, 2006 and 2007, and July 17, 2008, including both provincial and federal reassessments, and interest, is C$1,385,415.10. The Company has not yet received any Part XIII reassessments.

Pursuant to Section 5.8(d)(iii) of the Purchase Agreement, we have the right, at our own cost, to control the conduct of a Contest relating to a Tax matter arising in a period ending on or before the Closing Date. We have exercised this right, and our representatives have been involved in discussions with the CRA regarding the Audit. We will consult with you and allow you to participate in any such proceeding, and no settlement or other disposition of any claim for Tax shall be agreed to without your prior written consent.

 
1

 
 
We intend to appeal the Part I and Part XIII income tax reassessments of the CRA and the Ministry in respect of the management fees disallowed. The due date for the CRA Notices of Objection is March 8, 2012 for the December 31, 2006 and December 31, 2007 taxation years and March 12, 2012 for the July 17, 2008 taxation year. We acknowledge that in accordance with the provisions of subsection 225.1(7) of the Income Tax Act [Canada] one-half of the federal amounts so assessed in respect of the Part I tax must be remitted within 90 days after the date of the mailing of the notice of reassessment. Moreover, collection action by the CRA for the remaining federal liability will be held in abeyance pending the outcome of the appeal but interest will continue to accrue on such outstanding amounts. With respect to the Part XIII tax, one hundred percent of the tax and interest would be due immediately notwithstanding the filing of an objection. With respect to the Ontario reassessment, in accordance with the provisions of section 81 of the Corporations Tax Act [Ontario] one hundred percent of the tax and interest is now due notwithstanding the filing of an objection.

We acknowledge that the reassessment of tax and interest in respect of the meals and entertainment expenses is now due, and we do not intend to file an appeal in respect of this reassessment.

Accordingly, notwithstanding our intent file an appeal, and regardless of the substantive merits of the tax claims, we acknowledge that the Company must make a Tax payment of C$948,473.40, prior to March 8, 2012 (the “ Upfront Payment ”).

Pursuant to Section 5.8(a)(ii) of the Purchase Agreement, any Taxes imposed with respect to the Company's tax years ended December 31,2006 and 2007, and July 17,2008, are defined as “Pre-Closing Period Taxes.” Pursuant to Section 8.1(a)(vi)(A) of the Purchase Agreement, Seller has agreed to indemnify Purchaser and the Company from and against any Losses arising out of or relating to any Pre-Closing Period Taxes. Accordingly, we hereby acknowledge that we are required to indemnify Purchaser and the Company for any Taxes paid by the Company in respect of the Audit. We also note that Seller and Purchaser are not currently in agreement on the application of certain scientific research investment tax credits accrued in Tax periods prior to the Closing Date and utilized in Tax periods after the Closing Date to reduce Taxes for Tax periods after the Closing Date, and Seller reserves the right to argue or contend at any subsequent stage or proceeding, without prejudice, as to how such credits should be applied. Such argument or contention shall be without prejudice to Seller and the statements or positions taken by Seller herein shall be inadmissible in any court or arbitration.

We hereby request that you make the Upfront Payment (or cause the Company to make the Upfront Payment) in an amount equal to C$948,473.40 to the CRA. Notwithstanding the fact that the Upfront Payment, once paid, will constitute a Loss subject to immediate indemnification under Section 8.1 (a)(vi)(A) of the Purchase Agreement, we hereby request that you not seek immediate indemnification. Instead, we ask that you advance the Upfront Payment as a loan to us (the “ Loan ”). We agree to repay the amount of the Upfront Payment, plus interest accruing at the rate of five percent per annum, compounded monthly. The schedule of payments is listed below in Annex A.

If, on or prior to June 1, 2012, we reach a successful settlement of the Audit, and the Upfront Payment, plus applicable interest, is repaid to Purchaser or to the Company by the CRA and the Ministry, the proceeds received shall be for the account of Purchaser or the Company, and the Loan shall be treated as settled. If the Upfront Payment is not repaid by the CRA on or prior to May 1, 2014, and we have repaid the Loan in full, plus interest, in accordance with the schedule listed in Annex A, then any proceeds of the Upfront Payment repaid by the CRA, including any interest, shall be for our account. To the extent that the matter is resolved and the Upfront Payment, plus applicable interest, is repaid to Purchaser or to die Company by the CRA and the Ministry at any time between June 1, 2012 and May 1, 2014, the proceeds shall be first applied to the outstanding Loan principal balance plus interest accruing from the previous monthly payment date, with the remainder flowing to the Seller.

Very truly yours,

PositiveID Corporation

Exhibit 10.11
 
INDEMNIFICATION AGREEMENT
 
This Indemnification Agreement (“Agreement”) is made as of _______, 2012, by and between PositiveID Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), and ______________ (“Indemnitee”).  This Agreement supersedes and replaces any and all previous agreements between the Company and Indemnitee covering the subject matter of this Agreement.
 
RECITALS
 
WHEREAS, highly competent persons have become more reluctant to serve publicly-held corporations as directors or officers or in other capacities unless they are provided with adequate protection through insurance or adequate indemnification against inordinate risks of claims and actions against them arising out of their service to and activities on behalf of the corporation;
 
WHEREAS, the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”) has determined that, in order to attract and retain qualified individuals, the Company will attempt to maintain on an ongoing basis, at its sole expense, liability insurance to protect persons serving the Company and its subsidiaries from certain liabilities.  Although the furnishing of such insurance has been a customary and widespread practice among United States-based corporations and other business enterprises, the Company believes that, given current market conditions and trends, such insurance may be available to it in the future only at higher premiums and with more exclusions.  At the same time, directors, officers, and other persons in service to corporations or business enterprises are being increasingly subjected to expensive and time-consuming litigation relating to, among other things, matters that traditionally would have been brought only against the Company or business enterprise itself.  The Second Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, of the Company (the “Certificate of Incorporation”), the Amended and Restated By-laws, as amended, of the Company (the “By-laws”) require indemnification of the officers and directors of the Company.  Indemnitee may also be entitled to indemnification pursuant to the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “DGCL”).  The By-laws and the DGCL expressly provide that the indemnification provisions set forth therein are not exclusive, and thereby contemplate that contracts may be entered into between the Company and members of the board of directors, officers and other persons with respect to indemnification;
 
WHEREAS, the uncertainties relating to such insurance and to indemnification have increased the difficulty of attracting and retaining such persons;
 
WHEREAS, the Board has determined that the increased difficulty in attracting and retaining such persons is detrimental to the best interests of the Company and its stockholders and that the Company should act to assure such persons that there will be increased certainty of such protection in the future;
 
WHEREAS, it is reasonable, prudent and necessary for the Company contractually to obligate itself to indemnify, and to advance expenses on behalf of, such persons to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law so that they will serve or continue to serve the Company free from undue concern that they will not be so indemnified;
 
 
 

 
 
WHEREAS, this Agreement is a supplement to and in furtherance of the By-laws and any resolutions adopted pursuant thereto, and shall not be deemed a substitute therefor, nor to diminish or abrogate any rights of Indemnitee thereunder;
 
WHEREAS, Indemnitee does not regard the protection available under the By-laws and insurance as adequate in the present circumstances, and may not be willing to serve as an officer or director without adequate protection, and the Company desires Indemnitee to serve in such capacity.  Indemnitee is willing to serve, continue to serve and to take on additional service for or on behalf of the Company on the condition that he be so indemnified; and
 
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and the covenants contained herein, the Company and Indemnitee do hereby covenant and agree as follows:
 
Section 1.               Services to the Company.   Indemnitee agrees to serve as a [director] [officer] of the Company.  Indemnitee may at any time and for any reason resign from such position (subject to any other contractual obligation or any obligation imposed by operation of law), in which event the Company shall have no obligation under this Agreement to continue Indemnitee in such position.  This Agreement shall not be deemed an employment contract between the Company (or any of its subsidiaries or any Enterprise) and Indemnitee.  Indemnitee specifically acknowledges that Indemnitee's employment with the Company (or any of its subsidiaries or any Enterprise), if any, is at will, and the Indemnitee may be discharged at any time for any reason, with or without cause, except as may be otherwise provided in any written employment contract between Indemnitee and the Company (or any of its subsidiaries or any Enterprise), other applicable formal severance policies duly adopted by the Board, or, with respect to service as a director or officer of the Company, by the Certificate of Incorporation, the By-laws, and the DGCL.  The foregoing notwithstanding, this Agreement shall continue in force after Indemnitee has ceased to serve as an [officer] [director] of the Company, as provided in Section 16 hereof.
 
Section 2.               Definitions.    As used in this Agreement:
 
(a)           References to “agent” shall mean any person who is or was a director, officer, or employee of the Company or a subsidiary of the Company or other person authorized by the Company to act for the Company, to include such person serving in such capacity as a director, officer, employee, fiduciary or other official of another corporation, partnership, limited liability company, joint venture, trust or other enterprise at the request of, for the convenience of, or to represent the interests of the Company or a subsidiary of the Company.
 
(b)           A “Change in Control” shall be deemed to occur upon the earliest to occur after the date of this Agreement of any of the following events:

i.           Acquisition of Stock by Third Party.  Any Person (as defined below) is or becomes the Beneficial Owner (as defined below), directly or indirectly, of securities of the Company representing thirty five percent (35%) or more of the combined voting power of the Company's then outstanding securities unless the change in relative Beneficial Ownership of the Company's securities by any Person results solely from a reduction in the aggregate number of outstanding shares of securities entitled to vote generally in the election of directors;
 
ii.          Change in Board of Directors.  During any period of two (2) consecutive years (not including any period prior to the execution of this Agreement), individuals who at the beginning of such period constitute the Board, and any new director (other than a director designated by a person who has entered into an agreement with the Company to effect a transaction described in Sections 2(b)(i), 2(b)(iii) or 2(b)(iv)) whose election by the Board or nomination for election by the Company's stockholders was approved by a vote of at least two-thirds of the directors then still in office who either were directors at the beginning of the period or whose election or nomination for election was previously so approved, cease for any reason to constitute at least a majority of the members of the Board;
 
iii.         Corporate Transactions.  The effective date of a merger or consolidation of the Company with any other entity, other than a merger or consolidation which would result in the voting securities of the Company outstanding immediately prior to such merger or consolidation continuing to represent (either by remaining outstanding or by being converted into voting securities of the surviving entity) more than 51% of the combined voting power of the voting securities of the surviving entity outstanding immediately after such merger or consolidation and with the power to elect at least a majority of the board of directors or other governing body of such surviving entity;
 
iv.         Liquidation.  The approval by the stockholders of the Company of a complete liquidation of the Company or an agreement for the sale or disposition by the Company of all or substantially all of the Company's assets; and
 
v.          Other Events.  There occurs any other event of a nature that would be required to be reported in response to Item 6(e) of Schedule 14A of Regulation 14A (or a response to any similar item on any similar schedule or form) promulgated under the Exchange Act (as defined below), whether or not the Company is then subject to such reporting requirement.

(C)           “Beneficial Owner” shall have the meaning given to such term in Rule 13d-3 under the Exchange Act; provided, however, that Beneficial Owner shall exclude any Person otherwise becoming a Beneficial Owner by reason of the stockholders of the Company approving a merger of the Company with another entity.
 
(c)           “Corporate Status” describes the status of a person who is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the Company or of any other corporation, limited liability company, partnership or joint venture, trust or other enterprise which such person is or was serving at the request of the Company.
 
(d)           “Disinterested Director” shall mean a director of the Company who is not and was not a party to the Proceeding in respect of which indemnification is sought by Indemnitee.
 
(e)           “Enterprise” shall mean the Company and any other corporation, limited liability company, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise of which Indemnitee is or was serving at the request of the Company as a director, officer, trustee, partner, managing member, employee, agent or fiduciary.
 
(f)           “Expenses” shall include all reasonable attorneys' fees, retainers, court costs, transcript costs, fees of experts and other professionals, witness fees, travel expenses, duplicating costs, printing and binding costs, telephone charges, postage, delivery service fees, any federal, state, local or foreign taxes imposed on Indemnitee as a result of the actual or deemed receipt of any payments under this Agreement, ERISA excise taxes and penalties, and all other disbursements or expenses of the types customarily incurred in connection with prosecuting, defending, preparing to prosecute or defend, investigating, being or preparing to be a witness in, or otherwise participating in, a Proceeding.  Expenses also shall include (i) Expenses incurred in connection with any appeal resulting from any Proceeding, including without limitation the premium, security for, and other costs relating to any cost bond, supersedeas bond, or other appeal bond or its equivalent, and (ii) for purposes of Section 14(d) only, Expenses incurred by Indemnitee in connection with the interpretation, enforcement or defense of Indemnitee's rights under this Agreement, by litigation or otherwise.  The parties agree that for the purposes of any advancement of Expenses for which Indemnitee has made written demand to the Company in accordance with this Agreement, all Expenses included in such demand that are certified by affidavit of Indemnitee’s counsel as being reasonable shall be presumed conclusively to be reasonable.  Expenses, however, shall not include amounts paid in settlement by Indemnitee or the amount of judgments or fines against Indemnitee.

(g)           “Independent Counsel” shall mean a law firm, or a member of a law firm, that is experienced in matters of corporation law and neither presently is, nor in the past five (5) years has been, retained to represent:  (i) the Company or Indemnitee in any matter material to either such party (other than with respect to matters concerning the Indemnitee under this Agreement, or of other indemnitees under similar indemnification agreements), or (ii) any other party to the Proceeding giving rise to a claim for indemnification hereunder.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the term “Independent Counsel” shall not include any person who, under the applicable standards of professional conduct then prevailing, would have a conflict of interest in representing either the Company or Indemnitee in an action to determine Indemnitee's rights under this Agreement.  The Company agrees to pay the reasonable fees and expenses of the Independent Counsel referred to above and to fully indemnify such counsel against any and all Expenses, claims, liabilities and damages arising out of or relating to this Agreement or its engagement pursuant hereto.
 
(h)           The term “Proceeding” shall include any threatened, pending or completed action, suit, claim, counterclaim, cross claim, arbitration, mediation, alternate dispute resolution mechanism, investigation, inquiry, administrative hearing or any other actual, threatened or completed proceeding, whether brought in the right of the Company or otherwise and whether of a civil, criminal, administrative, legislative, or investigative (formal or informal) nature, including any appeal therefrom, in which Indemnitee was, is or will be involved as a party, potential party, non-party witness or otherwise by reason of the fact that Indemnitee is or was a director or officer of the Company, by reason of any action taken by him (or a failure to take action by him) or of any action (or failure to act) on his part while acting pursuant to his Corporate Status (in each case whether or not Indemnitee was serving in such capacity at the time any liability or Expense is incurred or at such time when the predicate acts giving rise to the Proceeding occurred)  for which indemnification, reimbursement, or advancement of Expenses can be provided under this Agreement.  If the Indemnitee believes in good faith that a given situation may lead to or culminate in the institution of a Proceeding, this shall be considered a Proceeding under this paragraph.
 
(i)           Reference to “other enterprise” shall include employee benefit plans; references to “fines” shall include any excise tax assessed with respect to any employee benefit plan and any tax assessed with respect to any payment of equity compensation; references to “serving at the request of the Company” shall include any service as a director, officer, employee or agent of the Company which imposes duties on, or involves services by, such director, officer, employee or agent with respect to an employee benefit plan, its participants or beneficiaries; and a person who acted in good faith and in a manner he reasonably believed to be in the best interests of the participants and beneficiaries of an employee benefit plan shall be deemed to have acted in manner “not opposed to the best interests of the Company” as referred to in this Agreement.
 
Section 3.              Indemnity in Third-Party Proceedings.   The Company shall indemnify Indemnitee in accordance with the provisions of this Section 3 if Indemnitee is, or is threatened to be made, a party to or a participant in any Proceeding, other than a Proceeding by or in the right of the Company to procure a judgment in its favor.  Pursuant to this Section 3, Indemnitee shall be indemnified and held harmless to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law against all Expenses, judgments, fines, penalties, and amounts paid in settlement (including all interest, assessments and other charges paid or payable in connection with or in respect of such Expenses, judgments, fines, penalties, and amounts paid in settlement) actually and reasonably incurred by Indemnitee or on his behalf in connection with such Proceeding or any claim, issue or matter therein, if Indemnitee acted in good faith and in a manner he reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the Company and, in the case of a criminal Proceeding had no reasonable cause to believe that his conduct was unlawful.
 
 
-5-

 
 
Section 4.              Indemnity in Proceedings by or in the Right of the Company.    The Company shall indemnify and hold harmless Indemnitee in accordance with the provisions of this Section 4 if Indemnitee is, or is threatened to be made, a party to or a participant in any Proceeding by or in the right of the Company to procure a judgment in its favor.  Pursuant to this Section 4, Indemnitee shall be indemnified and held harmless to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law against all Expenses actually and reasonably incurred by him or on his behalf in connection with such Proceeding or any claim, issue or matter therein, if Indemnitee acted in good faith and in a manner he reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the Company.  No indemnification for Expenses shall be made under this Section 4 in respect of any claim, issue or matter as to which Indemnitee shall have been finally adjudged by a court to be liable to the Company, unless and only to the extent that the Delaware Court of Chancery or any court in which the Proceeding was brought shall determine upon application that, despite the adjudication of liability but in view of all the circumstances of the case, Indemnitee is fairly and reasonably entitled to indemnification.
 
Section 5.              Indemnification for Expenses of a Party Who is Wholly or Partly Successful. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Agreement, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law and to the extent that Indemnitee is a party to (or a participant in) and is successful, on the merits or otherwise, in any Proceeding or in defense of any claim, issue or matter therein, in whole or in part, the Company shall indemnify Indemnitee against all Expenses actually and reasonably incurred by him in connection therewith.  If Indemnitee is not wholly successful in such Proceeding but is successful, on the merits or otherwise, as to one or more but less than all claims, issues or matters in such Proceeding, the Company shall indemnify Indemnitee against all Expenses actually and reasonably incurred by him or on his behalf in connection with or related to each successfully resolved claim, issue or matter to the fullest extent permitted by law.  For purposes of this Section and without limitation, the termination of any claim, issue or matter in such a Proceeding by dismissal, with or without prejudice, shall be deemed to be a successful result as to such claim, issue or matter.
 
Section 6.              Indemnification For Expenses of a Witness.   Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law and to the extent that Indemnitee is, by reason of his Corporate Status, a witness or otherwise asked to participate in any Proceeding to which Indemnitee is not a party, he shall be indemnified against all Expenses actually and reasonably incurred by him or on his behalf in connection therewith.
 
Section 7.              Partial Indemnification.   If Indemnitee is entitled under any provision of this Agreement to indemnification by the Company for some or a portion of Expenses, but not, however, for the total amount thereof, the Company shall nevertheless indemnify Indemnitee for the portion thereof to which Indemnitee is entitled.
 
 
-6-

 
 
Section 8.              Additional Indemnification.
 
(a)           Notwithstanding any limitation in Sections 3, 4, or 5, the Company shall indemnify Indemnitee to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law if Indemnitee is a party to or threatened to be made a party to any Proceeding (including a Proceeding by or in the right of the Company to procure a judgment in its favor) against all Expenses, judgments, fines, penalties and amounts paid in settlement (including all interest, assessments and other charges paid or payable in connection with or in respect of such Expenses, judgments, fines, penalties and amounts paid in settlement) actually and reasonably incurred by Indemnitee in connection with the Proceeding.
 
(b)           For purposes of Section 8(a), the meaning of the phrase “to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law” shall include, but not be limited to:
 
i.           to the fullest extent permitted by the provision of the DGCL that authorizes or contemplates additional indemnification by agreement, or the corresponding provision of any amendment to or replacement of the DGCL, and
 
ii.          to the fullest extent authorized or permitted by any amendments to or replacements of the DGCL adopted after the date of this Agreement that increase the extent to which a corporation may indemnify its officers and directors.
 
Section 9.                       Exclusions.    Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement, the Company shall not be obligated under this Agreement to make any indemnification payment in connection with any claim made against Indemnitee:
 
(a)           for which payment has actually been made to or on behalf of Indemnitee under any insurance policy or other indemnity provision, except with respect to any excess beyond the amount paid under any insurance policy or other indemnity provision; or
 
(b)           for (i) an accounting of profits made from the purchase and sale (or sale and purchase) by Indemnitee of securities of the Company within the meaning of Section 16(b) of the Exchange Act (as defined in Section 2(b) hereof) or similar provisions of state statutory law or common law, or (ii) any reimbursement of the Company by the Indemnitee of any bonus or other incentive-based or equity-based compensation or of any profits realized by the Indemnitee from the sale of securities of the Company, as required in each case under the Exchange Act (including any such reimbursements that arise from an accounting restatement of the Company pursuant to Section 304 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (the “Sarbanes-Oxley Act”), or the payment to the Company of profits arising from the purchase and sale by Indemnitee of securities in violation of Section 306 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act); or
 
 
-7-

 
 
(c)           except as provided in Section 14(d) of this Agreement, in connection with any Proceeding (or any part of any Proceeding) initiated by Indemnitee, including any Proceeding (or any part of any Proceeding) initiated by Indemnitee against the Company or its directors, officers, employees or other indemnitees, unless (i) the Board authorized the Proceeding (or any part of any Proceeding) prior to its initiation or (ii) the Company provides the indemnification, in its sole discretion, pursuant to the powers vested in the Company under applicable law.
 
Section 10.             Advances of Expenses.    Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary (other than Section 14(d)), the Company shall advance, to the extent not prohibited by law, the Expenses incurred by Indemnitee in connection with any Proceeding (or any part of any Proceeding) not initiated by Indemnitee, and such advancement shall be made within twenty (20) days after the receipt by the Company of a statement or statements requesting such advances from time to time, whether prior to or after final disposition of any Proceeding.  Advances shall be unsecured and interest free.  Advances shall be made without regard to Indemnitee's ability to repay the Expenses and without regard to Indemnitee's ultimate entitlement to indemnification under the other provisions of this Agreement.  In accordance with Section 14(d), advances shall include any and all reasonable Expenses incurred pursuing an action to enforce this right of advancement, including Expenses incurred preparing and forwarding statements to the Company to support the advances claimed.  The Indemnitee shall qualify for advances upon the execution and delivery to the Company of this Agreement, which shall constitute an undertaking providing that the Indemnitee undertakes to repay the amounts advanced (without interest) to the extent that it is ultimately determined by a court of competent jurisdiction that Indemnitee is not entitled to be indemnified by the Company.  The indemnification and advances of Expenses provisions of this Agreement shall apply with equal force to such court proceedings. No other form of undertaking shall be required other than the execution of this Agreement.  This Section 10 shall not apply to any claim made by Indemnitee for which indemnity is excluded pursuant to Section 9.
 
Section 11.              Procedure for Notification and Defense of Claim.
 
(a)           Indemnitee shall notify the Company in writing of any matter with respect to which Indemnitee intends to seek indemnification or advancement of Expenses hereunder as soon as reasonably practicable following the receipt by Indemnitee of written notice thereof.  The written notification to the Company shall include a description of the nature of the Proceeding and the facts underlying the Proceeding.  To obtain indemnification under this Agreement, Indemnitee shall submit to the Company a written request, including therein or therewith such documentation and information as is reasonably available to Indemnitee and is reasonably necessary to determine whether and to what extent Indemnitee is entitled to indemnification following the final disposition of such Proceeding.  The omission by Indemnitee to notify the Company hereunder will not relieve the Company from any liability which it may have to Indemnitee hereunder or otherwise than under this Agreement, and any delay in so notifying the Company shall not constitute a waiver by Indemnitee of any rights under this Agreement.  The Secretary of the Company shall, promptly upon receipt of such a request for indemnification, advise the Board in writing that Indemnitee has requested indemnification.

(b)           The Company will be entitled to participate in the Proceeding at its own expense.
 
Section 12.              Procedure Upon Application for Indemnification.
 
(a)           Upon written request by Indemnitee for indemnification pursuant to Section 11(a), a determination, if required by applicable law, with respect to Indemnitee's entitlement thereto shall be made in the specific case:  (i) if a Change in Control shall have occurred, by Independent Counsel in a written opinion to the Board, a copy of which shall be delivered to Indemnitee; or (ii) if a Change in Control shall not have occurred, (A) by a majority vote of the Disinterested Directors, even though less than a quorum of the Board, (B) by a committee of Disinterested Directors designated by a majority vote of the Disinterested Directors, even though less than a quorum of the Board, (C) if there are no such Disinterested Directors or, if such Disinterested Directors so direct, by Independent Counsel in a written opinion to the Board, a copy of which shall be delivered to Indemnitee or (D) if so directed by the Board, by the stockholders of the Company; and, if it is so determined that Indemnitee is entitled to indemnification, payment to Indemnitee shall be made within ten (10) days after such determination.  Indemnitee shall cooperate with the person, persons or entity making such determination with respect to Indemnitee's entitlement to indemnification, including providing to such person, persons or entity upon reasonable advance request any documentation or information which is not privileged or otherwise protected from disclosure and which is reasonably available to Indemnitee and reasonably necessary to such determination.  Any costs or Expenses (including attorneys' fees and disbursements) incurred by Indemnitee in so cooperating with the person, persons or entity making such determination shall be borne by the Company (irrespective of the determination as to Indemnitee's entitlement to indemnification) and the Company hereby indemnifies and agrees to hold Indemnitee harmless therefrom.  The Company promptly (within three business days) will advise Indemnitee in writing with respect to any determination that Indemnitee is or is not entitled to indemnification, including a description of any reason or basis for which indemnification has been denied.
 
(b)           In the event the determination of entitlement to indemnification is to be made by Independent Counsel pursuant to Section 12(a) hereof, the Independent Counsel shall be selected as provided in this Section 12(b).  If a Change in Control shall not have occurred, the Independent Counsel shall be selected by the Board, and the Company shall give written notice to Indemnitee advising him of the identity of the Independent Counsel so selected.  If a Change in Control shall have occurred, the Independent Counsel shall be selected by Indemnitee (unless Indemnitee shall request that such selection be made by the Board, in which event the preceding sentence shall apply), and Indemnitee shall give written notice to the Company advising it of the identity of the Independent Counsel so selected.  In either event, Indemnitee or the Company, as the case may be, may, within ten (10) days after such written notice of selection shall have been given, deliver to the Company or to Indemnitee, as the case may be, a written objection to such selection; provided , however , that such objection may be asserted only on the ground that the Independent Counsel so selected does not meet the requirements of “Independent Counsel” as defined in Section 2 of this Agreement, and the objection shall set forth with particularity the factual basis of such assertion.  Absent a proper and timely objection, the person so selected shall act as Independent Counsel.  If such written objection is so made and substantiated, the Independent Counsel so selected may not serve as Independent Counsel unless and until such objection is withdrawn or a court has determined that such objection is without merit.  If, within twenty (20) days after the later of submission by Indemnitee of a written request for indemnification pursuant to Section 11(a) hereof and the final disposition of the Proceeding, no Independent Counsel shall have been selected and not objected to, either the Company or Indemnitee may petition a court of competent jurisdiction for resolution of any objection which shall have been made by the Company or Indemnitee to the other's selection of Independent Counsel and/or for the appointment as Independent Counsel of a person selected by such court or by such other person as such court shall designate, and the person with respect to whom all objections are so resolved or the person so appointed shall act as Independent Counsel under Section 12(a) hereof.  Upon the due commencement of any judicial proceeding or arbitration pursuant to Section 14(a) of this Agreement, Independent Counsel shall be discharged and relieved of any further responsibility in such capacity (subject to the applicable standards of professional conduct then prevailing).

(a)           In making a determination with respect to entitlement to indemnification hereunder, the person or persons or entity making such determination shall, to the fullest extent not prohibited by law, presume that Indemnitee is entitled to indemnification under this Agreement if Indemnitee has submitted a request for indemnification in accordance with Section 11(a) of this Agreement, and the Company shall, to the fullest extent not prohibited by law, have the burden of proof to overcome that presumption in connection with the making by any person, persons or entity of any determination contrary to that presumption.  Neither the failure of the Company (including by its directors or Independent Counsel) to have made a determination prior to the commencement of any action pursuant to this Agreement that indemnification is proper in the circumstances because Indemnitee has met the applicable standard of conduct, nor an actual determination by the Company (including by its directors or Independent Counsel) that Indemnitee has not met such applicable standard of conduct, shall be a defense to the action or create a presumption that Indemnitee has not met the applicable standard of conduct.
 
(b)           Subject to Section 14(e), if the person, persons or entity empowered or selected under Section 12 of this Agreement to determine whether Indemnitee is entitled to indemnification shall not have made a determination within sixty (60) days after receipt by the Company of the request therefor, the requisite determination of entitlement to indemnification shall, to the fullest extent not prohibited by law, be deemed to have been made and Indemnitee shall be entitled to such indemnification, absent (i) a misstatement by Indemnitee of a material fact, or an omission of a material fact necessary to make Indemnitee's statement not materially misleading, in connection with the request for indemnification, or (ii) a prohibition of such indemnification under applicable law; provided, however, that such 60-day period may be extended for a reasonable time, not to exceed an additional thirty (30) days, if the person, persons or entity making the determination with respect to entitlement to indemnification in good faith requires such additional time for the obtaining or evaluating of documentation and/or information relating thereto; and provided, further, that the foregoing provisions of this Section 13(b) shall not apply (i) if the determination of entitlement to indemnification is to be made by the stockholders pursuant to Section 12(a) of this Agreement and if (A) within fifteen (15) days after receipt by the Company of the request for such determination the Board has resolved to submit such determination to the stockholders for their consideration at an annual meeting thereof to be held within seventy-five (75) days after such receipt and such determination is made thereat, or (B) a special meeting of stockholders is called within fifteen (15) days after such receipt for the purpose of making such determination, such meeting is held for such purpose within sixty (60) days after having been so called and such determination is made thereat, or (ii) if the determination of entitlement to indemnification is to be made by Independent Counsel pursuant to Section 12(a) of this Agreement.

(c)           The termination of any Proceeding or of any claim, issue or matter therein, by judgment, order, settlement or conviction, or upon a plea of nolo contendere or its equivalent, shall not (except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement) of itself adversely affect the right of Indemnitee to indemnification or create a presumption that Indemnitee did not act in good faith and in a manner which he reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the Company or, with respect to any criminal Proceeding, that Indemnitee had reasonable cause to believe that his conduct was unlawful.
 
(d)           For purposes of any determination of good faith, Indemnitee shall be deemed to have acted in good faith if Indemnitee's action is based on the records or books of account of the Enterprise, including financial statements, or on information supplied to Indemnitee by the directors or officers of the Enterprise in the course of their duties, or on the advice of legal counsel for the Enterprise or on information or records given or reports made to the Enterprise by an independent certified public accountant or by an appraiser or other expert selected with the reasonable care by  the Enterprise.  The provisions of this Section 13(d) shall not be deemed to be exclusive or to limit in any way the other circumstances in which the Indemnitee may be deemed to have met the applicable standard of conduct set forth in this Agreement.
 
(e)           The knowledge and/or actions, or failure to act, of any director, officer, trustee, partner, managing member, fiduciary, agent or employee of the Enterprise shall not be imputed to Indemnitee for purposes of determining the right to indemnification under this Agreement.
 
Section 14.             Remedies of Indemnitee.
 
(a)           Subject to Section 14(e), in the event that (i) a determination is made pursuant to Section 12 of this Agreement that Indemnitee is not entitled to indemnification under this Agreement, (ii) advancement of Expenses is not timely made pursuant to Section 10 of this Agreement, (iii) no determination of entitlement to indemnification shall have been made pursuant to Section 12(a) of this Agreement within sixty (60) days after receipt by the Company of the request for indemnification, (iv) payment of indemnification is not made pursuant to Section 5, 6 or 7 or the last sentence of Section 12(a) of this Agreement within ten (10) days after receipt by the Company of a written request therefor, (v) payment of indemnification pursuant to Section 3, 4 or 8 of this Agreement is not made within ten (10) days after a determination has been made that Indemnitee is entitled to indemnification, or (vi) in the event that the Company or any other person takes or threatens to take any action to declare this Agreement void or unenforceable, or institutes any litigation or other action or Proceeding designed to deny, or to recover from, the Indemnitee the benefits provided or intended to be provided to the Indemnitee hereunder, Indemnitee shall be entitled to an adjudication by a court of his entitlement to such indemnification or advancement of Expenses.  Alternatively, Indemnitee, at his option, may seek an award in arbitration to be conducted by a single arbitrator pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association.  Indemnitee shall commence such proceeding seeking an adjudication or an award in arbitration within 180 days following the date on which Indemnitee first has the right to commence such proceeding pursuant to this Section 14(a); provided , however , that the foregoing clause shall not apply in respect of a proceeding brought by Indemnitee to enforce his rights under Section 5 of this Agreement.  The Company shall not oppose Indemnitee's right to seek any such adjudication or award in arbitration.
 
 
-11-

 
 
(b)           In the event that a determination shall have been made pursuant to Section 12(a) of this Agreement that Indemnitee is not entitled to indemnification, any judicial proceeding or arbitration commenced pursuant to this Section 14 shall be conducted in all respects as a de novo trial, or arbitration, on the merits and Indemnitee shall not be prejudiced by reason of that adverse determination.  In any judicial proceeding or arbitration commenced pursuant to this Section 14 the Company shall have the burden of proving Indemnitee is not entitled to indemnification or advancement of Expenses, as the case may be.
 
(c)           If a determination shall have been made pursuant to Section 12(a) of this Agreement that Indemnitee is entitled to indemnification, the Company shall be bound by such determination in any judicial proceeding or arbitration commenced pursuant to this Section 14, absent (i) a misstatement by Indemnitee of a material fact, or an omission of a material fact necessary to make Indemnitee's statement not materially misleading, in connection with the request for indemnification, or (ii) a prohibition of such indemnification under applicable law.
 
(d)           The Company shall, to the fullest extent not prohibited by law, be precluded from asserting in any judicial proceeding or arbitration commenced pursuant to this Section 14 that the procedures and presumptions of this Agreement are not valid, binding and enforceable and shall stipulate in any such court or before any such arbitrator that the Company is bound by all the provisions of this Agreement.  It is the intent of the Company that, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the Indemnitee not be required to incur legal fees or other Expenses associated with the interpretation, enforcement or defense of Indemnitee's rights under this Agreement by litigation or otherwise because the cost and expense thereof would substantially detract from the benefits intended to be extended to the Indemnitee hereunder.  The Company shall, to the fullest extent permitted by law, indemnify Indemnitee against any and all Expenses and, if requested by Indemnitee, shall (within ten (10) days after receipt by the Company of a written request therefor) advance, to the extent not prohibited by law, such Expenses to Indemnitee, which are incurred by Indemnitee in connection with any action brought by Indemnitee for indemnification or advance of Expenses from the Company under this Agreement or under any directors' and officers' liability insurance policies maintained by the Company if, in the case of indemnification, Indemnitee is wholly successful on the underlying claims; if Indemnitee is not wholly successful on the underlying claims, then such indemnification shall be only to the extent Indemnitee is successful on such underlying claims or otherwise as permitted by law, whichever is greater.
 
 
-12-

 
 
(e)           Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, no determination as to entitlement of Indemnitee to indemnification under this Agreement shall be required to be made prior to the final disposition of the Proceeding.
 
Section 15.             Non-exclusivity; Survival of Rights; Insurance; Subrogation.
 
(a)           The rights of indemnification and to receive advancement of Expenses as provided by this Agreement shall not be deemed exclusive of any other rights to which Indemnitee may at any time be entitled under applicable law, the Certificate of Incorporation, the By-laws, any agreement, a vote of stockholders or a resolution of directors, or otherwise.  No amendment, alteration or repeal of this Agreement or of any provision hereof shall limit or restrict any right of Indemnitee under this Agreement in respect of any action taken or omitted by such Indemnitee in his Corporate Status prior to such amendment, alteration or repeal.  To the extent that a change in Delaware law, whether by statute or judicial decision, permits greater indemnification or advancement of Expenses than would be afforded currently under the By-laws and this Agreement, it is the intent of the parties hereto that Indemnitee shall enjoy by this Agreement the greater benefits so afforded by such change.  No right or remedy herein conferred is intended to be exclusive of any other right or remedy, and every other right and remedy shall be cumulative and in addition to every other right and remedy given hereunder or now or hereafter existing at law or in equity or otherwise.  The assertion or employment of any right or remedy hereunder, or otherwise, shall not prevent the concurrent assertion or employment of any other right or remedy.
 
(b)           To the extent that the Company maintains an insurance policy or policies providing liability insurance for directors, officers, employees, or agents of the Enterprise, Indemnitee shall be covered by such policy or policies in accordance with its or their terms to the maximum extent of the coverage available for any such director, officer, employee or agent under such policy or policies.  If, at the time of the receipt of a notice of a claim pursuant to the terms hereof, the Company has director and officer liability insurance in effect, the Company shall give prompt notice of such claim or of the commencement of a Proceeding, as the case may be, to the insurers in accordance with the procedures set forth in the respective policies.  The Company shall thereafter take all necessary or desirable action to cause such insurers to pay, on behalf of the Indemnitee, all amounts payable as a result of such Proceeding in accordance with the terms of such policies.
 
(c)           In the event of any payment under this Agreement, the Company shall be subrogated to the extent of such payment to all of the rights of recovery of Indemnitee, who shall execute all papers required and take all action necessary to secure such rights, including execution of such documents as are necessary to enable the Company to bring suit to enforce such rights.
 
 
-13-

 
 
(d)           The Company shall not be liable under this Agreement to make any payment of amounts otherwise indemnifiable (or for which advancement is provided hereunder) hereunder if and to the extent that Indemnitee has otherwise actually received such payment under any insurance policy, contract, agreement or otherwise.
 
(e)           The Company's obligation to indemnify or advance Expenses hereunder to Indemnitee who is or was serving at the request of the Company as a director, officer, trustee, partner, managing member, fiduciary, employee or agent of any other corporation, limited liability company, partnership, joint venture, trust, employee benefit plan or other enterprise shall be reduced by any amount Indemnitee has actually received as indemnification or advancement of Expenses from such other corporation, limited liability company, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise.
 
Section 16.             Duration of Agreement.   This Agreement shall continue until and terminate upon the later of: (a) ten (10) years after the date that Indemnitee shall have ceased to serve as a [director] [officer] of the Company or (b) two (2) years after the final termination of any Proceeding then pending in respect of which Indemnitee is granted rights of indemnification or advancement of Expenses hereunder and of any proceeding commenced by Indemnitee pursuant to Section 14 of this Agreement relating thereto.  The indemnification and advancement of expenses rights provided by or granted pursuant to this Agreement shall be binding upon and be enforceable by the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns (including any direct or indirect successor by purchase, merger, consolidation or otherwise to all or substantially all of the business or assets of the Company), shall continue as to an Indemnitee who has ceased to be a director, officer, employee or agent of the Company or of any other Enterprise, and shall inure to the benefit of Indemnitee and his or her spouse, assigns, heirs, devisees, executors and administrators and other legal representatives.
 
Section 17.             Severability.   If any provision or provisions of this Agreement shall be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason whatsoever: (a) the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement (including without limitation, each portion of any Section of this Agreement containing any such provision held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that is not itself invalid, illegal or unenforceable) shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby and shall remain enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law; (b) such provision or provisions shall be deemed reformed to the extent necessary to conform to applicable law and to give the maximum effect to the intent of the parties hereto; and (c) to the fullest extent possible, the provisions of this Agreement (including, without limitation, each portion of any Section of this Agreement containing any such provision held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that is not itself invalid, illegal or unenforceable) shall be construed so as to give effect to the intent manifested thereby.
 
Section 18.             Enforcement.
 
(a)           The Company expressly confirms and agrees that it has entered into this Agreement and assumed the obligations imposed on it hereby in order to induce Indemnitee to serve as a director or officer of the Company, and the Company acknowledges that Indemnitee is relying upon this Agreement in serving as a director or officer of the Company.
 
 
-14-

 
 
(b)           This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior agreements and understandings, oral, written and implied, between the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof; provided, however, that this Agreement is a supplement to and in furtherance of the Certificate of Incorporation, the By-laws and applicable law, and shall not be deemed a substitute therefor, nor to diminish or abrogate any rights of Indemnitee thereunder.
 
Section 19.             Modification and Waiver.   No supplement, modification or amendment of this Agreement shall be binding unless executed in writing by the parties hereto.  No waiver of any of the provisions of this Agreement shall be deemed or shall constitute a waiver of any other provisions of this Agreement nor shall any waiver constitute a continuing waiver.
 
Section 20.              Notice by Indemnitee.   Indemnitee agrees promptly to notify the Company in writing upon being served with any summons, citation, subpoena, complaint, indictment, information or other document relating to any Proceeding or matter which may be subject to indemnification or advancement of Expenses covered hereunder.  The failure of Indemnitee to so notify the Company shall not relieve the Company of any obligation which it may have to the Indemnitee under this Agreement or otherwise.
 
Section 21.              Notices.   All notices, requests, demands and other communications under this Agreement shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been duly given if (a) delivered by hand and receipted for by the party to whom said notice or other communication shall have been directed, (b) mailed by certified or registered mail with postage prepaid, on the third business day after the date on which it is so mailed, (c) mailed by reputable overnight courier and receipted for by the party to whom said notice or other communication shall have been directed or (d) sent by facsimile transmission, with receipt of oral confirmation that such transmission has been received:

-15-

 
 
Section 22.             Contribution.   To the fullest extent permissible under applicable law, if the indemnification provided for in this Agreement is unavailable to Indemnitee for any reason whatsoever, the Company, in lieu of indemnifying Indemnitee, shall contribute to the amount incurred by Indemnitee, whether for judgments, fines, penalties, excise taxes, amounts paid or to be paid in settlement and/or for Expenses, in connection with any claim relating to an indemnifiable event under this Agreement, in such proportion as is deemed fair and reasonable in light of all of the circumstances of such Proceeding in order to reflect (i) the relative benefits received by the Company and Indemnitee as a result of the event(s) and/or transaction(s) giving cause to such Proceeding; and/or (ii) the relative fault of the Company (and its directors, officers, employees and agents) and Indemnitee in connection with such event(s) and/or transaction(s).
 
Section 23.             Applicable Law and Consent to Jurisdiction.   This Agreement and the legal relations among the parties shall be governed by, and construed and enforced in accordance with, the laws of the State of Delaware, without regard to its conflict of laws rules.  Except with respect to any arbitration commenced by Indemnitee pursuant to Section 14(a) of this Agreement, the Company and Indemnitee hereby irrevocably and unconditionally (i) agree that any action or proceeding arising out of or in connection with this Agreement shall be brought only in the state courts in Palm Beach County, Florida (the “Florida Court”), and not in any other state or federal court in the United States of America or any court in any other country, (ii) consent to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Florida Court for purposes of any action or proceeding arising out of or in connection with this Agreement, (iii) waive any objection to the laying of venue of any such action or proceeding in the Florida Court, and (iv) waive, and agree not to plead or to make, any claim that any such action or proceeding brought in the Florida Court has been brought in an improper or inconvenient forum.
 
Section 24.             Identical Counterparts.   This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which shall for all purposes be deemed to be an original but all of which together shall constitute one and the same Agreement.  Only one such counterpart signed by the party against whom enforceability is sought needs to be produced to evidence the existence of this Agreement.
 
Section 25.             Miscellaneous.     Use of the masculine pronoun shall be deemed to include usage of the feminine pronoun where appropriate.  The headings of this Agreement are inserted for convenience only and shall not be deemed to constitute part of this Agreement or to affect the construction thereof.
