The table below details the net proceeds of the Offering.
Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Company has agreed to indemnify the Investors for liabilities arising out of or relating to (i) any breach of any of the representations, warranties, covenants or agreements made by the Company or its subsidiary in the Purchase Agreement or related documents or (ii) any action instituted against an Investor with respect to the Offering, subject to certain exceptions.

In addition, on the Initial Closing Date, the Company entered into a registration rights agreement (the "Registration Rights Agreement") with the Investors, pursuant to which the Company agreed to register for resale by the Investors the shares of Common Stock and the shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Investor Warrants purchased by the Investors pursuant to the Purchase Agreement. The Company previously committed to file the registration statement no later than October 27, 2019, however it filed the registration statement December 5, 2019. The Registration Rights Agreement provides for liquidated damages upon the occurrence of certain events, including the Company's failure to file the registration statement by the deadline set forth above. The amount of liquidated damages payable to an Investor is 1.0% of the aggregate amount invested by such Investor for each 30-day period, or pro rata portion thereof, during which the default continues. To date the Company has paid $60,650 and accrued $19,053 in liquidated damages.

Warrants to Purchase Common Stock
We use the Black-Scholes-Merton option pricing model ("Black-Scholes Model") to determine the fair value of warrants to purchase Common Stock of the Company ("Warrants"). The Black-Scholes Model is an acceptable model in accordance with the GAAP. The Black-Scholes Model requires the use of a number of assumptions including volatility of the stock price, the weighted average risk-free interest rate, and the weighted average term of the Warrant.
The risk-free interest rate assumption is based upon observed interest rates on zero coupon U.S. Treasury bonds whose maturity period is appropriate for the term of the Warrants. Estimated volatility is a measure of the amount by which our stock price is expected to fluctuate each year during the expected life of the award. Our estimated volatility is an average of the historical volatility of peer entities whose stock prices were publicly available over a period equal to the expected life of the awards. We used the historical volatility of peer entities due to the lack of sufficient historical data of our stock price.
As of December 31, 2019, we had Warrants outstanding to purchase an aggregate of 4,771,417 shares of Common Stock with a weighted-average contractual remaining life of approximately 2.8 years, and exercise prices ranging from $0.01 to $3.25 per share, resulting in a weighted average exercise price of $3.15 per share. At December 31, 2019, no warrants were exercised.
On September 27, 2019, we granted an aggregate of 4,495,657 3-year Warrants to participants in our Securities Purchase Agreement (see above for further details). The Warrants vested on the date of the grant and had a grant date fair value of $0.33 per share. Also, on September 27, 2019, we granted a Warrant to an individual lender for the purchase of an aggregate of 140,678 shares of Common Stock (see NOTE 7 for further details). The Warrant vested on the date of the grant, expires on September 26, 2024 and has a grant date fair value of $2.49 per share.
On October 30, 2019, we granted an aggregate of 123,600 3-year Warrants to participants in our Securities Purchase Agreement (see above for further details). The Warrants vested on the date of the grant and had a grant date fair value of $0.35 per share.
On November 27, 2019, we granted an aggregate of 152,160 3-year Warrants to participants in our Securities Purchase Agreement (see above for further details). The Warrants vested on the date of the grant and had a grant date fair value of $0.34 per share.
The assumptions used in the Black-Scholes Model are set forth in the table below.
Equity Incentive Plan
In connection with the Closing, our board of directors (the "Board") approved, and our stockholders adopted, the 2018 Equity Incentive Plan (the "2018 Plan") pursuant to which 10 million shares of our Common Stock has been reserved for issuance to employees, including officers, directors and consultants. The 2018 Plan shall be administered by the Board, provided however, that the Board may delegate such administration to the compensation committee (the "Committee"). Subject to the provisions of the 2018 Plan, the Board and/or the Committee shall have authority to grant, in its discretion, incentive stock options, or non-statutory options, stock awards or restricted stock purchase offers ("Equity Awards").
In August 2019, pursuant to the terms of Severance Agreements, 675,000 incentive stock options with deferred distribution were promised to two former employees of the Company pursuant to the 2018 Plan (both employees participated in the restricted stock purchase offers ("RSUs") discussed below). For the year ended December 31, 2019, $435,312 in related stock compensation expense has been recorded and is included in the accompanying consolidated financial statements.
During 2018, the Company entered into an agreement wherein 378,478 RSUs with deferred distribution were promised to a consultant for the Company pursuant to the 2018 Plan. For the year ended December 31, 2019, $50,599 in related stock compensation expense has been recorded and is included in the accompanying consolidated financial statements. The Company has not yet executed the RSU agreement with the consultant. Also during 2018, the Company entered into agreements where an aggregate of 408,478 RSUs pursuant to the 2018 Plan were promised to employees for services provided during 2019. In August 2019, certain employees were terminated and, in accordance with their separation agreements, any liabilities related to their promised RSUs were eliminated. Accordingly, the Company has recorded expense of $71,789 for the year ended December 31, 2019, with respect to such awards which is included in the accompanying consolidated financial statements. The Company has not yet executed RSU agreements with the remaining employees. The total amount of non-vested restricted units awarded as of December 31, 2019 is $143,804 shares. The weighted average grant-date fair value for the restricted stock awards is $0.25. The weighted average vesting period of the restricted stock awards is 2.0 years. As of December 31, 2019, unrecognized compensation expense related to the unvested portion of the Company's restricted stock awards was $42,759, which is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 0.75 years.
The Company recognizes stock compensation expense generally upon the grant date and over the period of vesting or period that services will be provided. Compensation associated with shares issued or to be issued to consultants and other non-employees is recognized over the expected service period beginning on the measurement date which is generally the time the Company and the service provider enter into a commitment whereby the Company agrees to grant shares in exchange for the services to be provided.
As of December 31, 2019, the Board has not approved the grant of any Equity Awards under the 2018 Plan.
