Additional references to specific dates in the Agreement shall be deemed updated mutatis mutandis.

2. Expenses. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 3(d) of the Agreement, the Company agrees to pay the fees and disbursements of Agent’s counsel in connection with the execution of this Amendment in an amount not to exceed $75,000.
