The refund clause:

> Respondent will … distribute by electronic means reasonably designed to notify each potential claimant (“Distribute”), a notice and a claim form (the “Claim Form”), both of which shall be in a form not objected to by Commission staff, informing all persons and entities that purchased AirTokens from Respondent before and including October 5, 2017 of their potential claims under Section 12(a) of the Securities Act, including the right to sue “to recover the consideration paid for such security with interest thereon, less the amount of any income received thereon, upon the tender of such security, or for damages if [the purchaser] no longer owns the security” and informing purchasers that they may submit a written claim on the Claim Form directly to Respondent
