Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On January 27, 2016, the Board of Directors (the "Board") of the Registrant increased the size of the Board from five to six members and appointed Patrick Beirne to fill the vacancy caused by such increase.

The Board has determined that Mr. Beirne is independent under the rules of the NASDAQ marketplace rules.  There is no arrangement or understanding between Mr. Beirne and any other person pursuant to which he was selected to serve as a director.  Additionally, there are no related party transactions involving the Registrant and Mr. Beirne that the Registrant would be required to report pursuant to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.

Mr. Beirne will receive compensation for his service as a non-employee director pursuant to the Company's non-employee director compensation policy.  Under this policy, each non-employee director is issued stock options and is paid $10,000 per year and $500 for attendance at each Board meeting.  In accordance with this policy, on January 27, 2016, Mr. Beirne was granted an option to purchase 10,000 shares of the Company's common stock that vests in two equal installments on each of the first two anniversary dates of the date of grant.

A copy of the news release announcing the Board appointment is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
