John Pappajohn, a member of the Board of Directors and stockholder, had personally guaranteed our revolving line of credit with Wells Fargo Bank through March 31, 2014. As consideration for his guarantee, as well as each of the eight extensions of this facility through March 31, 2014, Mr. Pappajohn received warrants to purchase an aggregate of 1,051,506 shares of common stock of which Mr. Pappajohn assigned warrants to purchase 284,000 shares of common stock to certain third parties. Warrants to purchase 440,113 shares of common stock have been exercised by Mr. Pappajohn through June 30, 2015. After adjustment pursuant to the terms of the warrants in conjunction with our IPO, the number of these warrants outstanding retained by Mr. Pappajohn was 352,312 at $15.00 per share.
In addition, John Pappajohn also had loaned us an aggregate of $6,750,000 (all of which was converted into 675,000 shares of common stock at the IPO price of $10.00 per share).

Effective January 6, 2014, the Board of Directors appointed John Pappajohn to serve as the Chairman of the Board. As compensation for serving as the Chairman of the Board, the Company will pay Mr. Pappajohn $100,000 per year and granted to Mr. Pappajohn 25,000 restricted shares of the Company's common stock, and options to purchase an aggregate of 100,000 shares of the Company's common stock. The options have a term of ten years from the date on which they were granted. The restricted stock and the options each vest in two equal installments on the one-year anniversary and the two-year anniversary of the date on which Mr. Pappajohn became the Chairman of the Board.
In August 2010, we entered into a consulting agreement with Equity Dynamics, Inc. (“EDI”), an entity controlled by John Pappajohn, pursuant to which EDI received a monthly fee of $10,000.

Total expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014 were $30,000, and for the six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, total expenses were $60,000. As of June 30, 2015, we owed EDI $0.
On September 15, 2010, we entered into a three-year consulting agreement with Dr. Chaganti which was subsequently renewed through December 31, 2016 pursuant to which Dr. Chaganti receives $5,000 per month for providing consulting and technical support services. Total expenses for each of the three months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014 were $15,000. Total expenses for each of the six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014 were $30,000. Pursuant to the terms of the renewed consulting agreement, Dr. Chaganti received an option to purchase 200,000 shares of our common stock at a purchase price of $15.89 per share vesting over a period of four years.
