Purchaser shall pay $3,000,000 of the Purchase Price in cash, as set forth in Section 1.3 below, and the balance of the Purchase Price shall be paid by Purchaser’s issuance to Seller of 250,000 shares of Purchaser’s restricted common stock (“Purchaser’s Common Stock”); provided, however, in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in the Registration Rights Agreement in the form of Exhibit A attached hereto (the “Registration Rights Agreement”), Purchaser shall guarantee that Seller shall receive no less than $5.00 per share of Purchaser’s Common Stock upon resale.


1.3 Payment of Purchase Price: Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, in reliance on the representations, warranties and agreements of the Seller contained herein, and in consideration of the sale and delivery of the Shares, the Purchaser shall pay the Purchase Price in the following manner:

 

(a) At the Closing the Purchaser shall deliver to the Seller one or more stock certificates representing Purchaser’s Common Stock and shall make an initial payment to Seller of $1,000,000 in cash in the form of a bank check, made payable to Seller, or by way of funds wired to a designated bank account of Seller.

 

(b) The remaining $2,000,000 of the Purchase Price shall be paid by Purchaser to Seller in cash in the form of a bank check, made payable to Seller, or by way of funds wired to the account designated by Seller in four installments of $500,000 each on the following dates:

 

(i) No later than six months from the Closing Date;

 

(ii) Twelve months after the Closing Date;

 

(iii) Eighteen months after the Closing Date; and

 

(iv) Twenty-four months after the Closing Date.

 

The Purchaser shall accelerate the timing of the above installment payments, if Purchaser’s securities become listed on AMEX and Purchaser receives debt or equity financing that is in an amount between $2,500,000 and $10,000,000, as follows. If Purchaser receives an amount equal to $2,500,000 but less than $5,000,000, Purchaser shall accelerate 50% of any remaining installment payments. If Purchaser receives an amount equal to $5,000,000 but less than $10,000,000, Purchaser shall accelerate 75% of any remaining installment payments. Finally, if Purchaser receives an amount equal to or in excess of $10,000,000, Purchaser shall accelerate all remaining installment payments. The amount of debt or equity financing under this paragraph shall be determined based on the actual amount funded and received by Purchaser from the lender or investor, as applicable.

 

1.4 Adjustment to Purchase Price:

 

(a) The Purchase Price shall be decreased on a dollar-for-dollar basis by the amount by which the Closing Net Assets (as defined below) are less than Two Million Four Hundred Fourteen Thousand Eight Hundred Thirty-Nine and No/100 Dollars ($2,414,839.00) on the Closing Date (the “Adjustment”); provided, there shall not be an increase in the Purchase Price in the event the Closing Net Assets exceed the amount specified above. The term “Closing Net

 

2


Assets” means, as any date of determination, the total assets of the Company (on a consolidated basis) minus the total liabilities of the Company, each prepared on a consolidated basis, excluding from such calculation (i) deferred tax assets and tax liabilities, (ii) current tax receivables and payables, and (iii) interests in intangible property, including goodwill. The Closing Net Assets shall be determined in compliance with the United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”).

 

(b) No less than three and no more than five days prior to the Closing Date (as defined below), Seller shall deliver to Purchaser a balance sheet prepared in accordance with GAAP, setting forth the Closing Net Assets as of the Closing Date; provided, Seller shall estimate anticipated changes to the Closing Net Assets between the date of delivery and the Closing Date. Purchaser shall have 30 days from the Closing Date (the “Review Period”) to review the Closing Net Assets. In connection with such review, Seller shall grant Purchaser reasonable access to its records relating to the Company and auditor’s work papers, if any. If Purchaser disagrees with the Closing Net Assets, Purchaser may, on or prior to the last day of the Review Period, deliver a notice to Seller setting forth, in reasonable detail, each disputed item or amount and the basis for Purchaser’s disagreement therewith, together with supporting calculations (the “Dispute Notice”). If a Dispute Notice is not received by Seller on or prior to the last day of the Review Period, the Closing Net Assets shall be deemed accepted by Purchaser. If Purchaser and Seller shall not have resolved all of the issues set forth in the Dispute Notice within 30 days after Seller’s receipt of the Dispute Notice, not more than five days thereafter, Purchaser and Seller shall jointly contact a nationally recognized accounting firm, not used by the Seller, Purchaser, or the Company during the preceding three year period, and shall retain such accounting firm to resolve the issues set forth in the Dispute Notice. The accountant’s determination shall be made within 30 days of submission of the items in dispute under the Dispute Notice, and shall set forth in a report (the “Adjustment Report”) the accountant’s determination with respect to each of the disputed items specified in the Dispute Notice, and the revisions, if any, to be made to the Closing Net Assets, together with supporting calculations. Purchaser shall pay one half, and Seller shall pay one half, of the fees and expenses of the accountant incurred in connection with the matters referenced in this Section. The Adjustment Report shall be final and binding upon Purchaser and Seller, and shall be deemed a final arbitration award that is enforceable pursuant to the terms of the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §1 et seq.

 

(c) If an Adjustment occurs at or prior to the Closing, then (i) the $1 million cash payment made pursuant to Section 1.3(a) above shall be reduced by an amount equal to such Adjustment multiplied by 33 1/3%, and (ii) the aggregate installment payments of $2 million set forth in Section 1.3(b) above shall be reduced, pro rata, by an amount equal to such Adjustment multiplied by 66 2/3%. If an Adjustment occurs after the Closing due to the delivery of a Dispute Notice, then the Adjustment shall be applied pro rata to the remaining installment payments provided for in Section 1.3(b).

Following such delivery and review, the Purchaser shall deliver to the Seller that portion of the Purchase Price then due, and the Purchaser shall cause its stock transfer agent to issue the Purchaser Common Stock to the Seller; and the parties shall thereupon cause the Company’s stock transfer agent to cancel each certificate delivered to the Purchaser and to issue in the name of the Purchaser one or more substitute certificates evidencing its ownership of the Shares and register such issuance and ownership in the Company’s stock transfer records. Each party shall be responsible for all fees and costs incurred by him, her or it or on his, her or its behalf in connection with the negotiation of this Agreement and the Closing.

 

If at the Closing the Seller shall fail to tender the Shares, or if any of the conditions specified hereunder shall not have been fulfilled, the Purchaser shall, at its option, be relieved of its obligations under this Agreement without thereby waiving any rights it may have by reason of such failure or non-fulfillment. If at the Closing either party fails to close the transactions herein contemplated for any reason other than a default or breach occasioned by the other party under the terms hereof, the non-defaulting party may pursue any legal rights or remedies then available to him, her or it, expressly including the right to require the defaulting party’s specific performance of this Agreement.

 

At the Closing, the Seller shall deliver to the Purchaser all of the corporate records of the Company and each Subsidiary, including, but not limited to the original minutes, of all meetings of the board of directors and shareholders, written actions of the board of directors and shareholders, stock transfer records, transfer agent information and monthly transfer agent statements, and Edgar filing information such as the Company’s filer codes and password. Additionally, Seller shall provide a shareholders list from its transfer agent, dated as closely to the Closing date as possible and certified as accurate by the Seller.

 

1.6 Inspection. The Purchaser shall have a period commencing on the date of this agreement and terminating thirty (30) days from the date of this agreement (the “Inspection Period”), within which to perform physical, financial and market feasibility examination, inspections and studies. In the event that Purchaser is not satisfied, in its sole discretion, with the results of Purchaser’s inspections, examinations, investigations and studies, for any reason whatsoever, this may cause for an adjustment.

(b) a breach of any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement made or to be performed by the Seller under this Agreement (individually a “Claim” and collectively the “Claims”).

 

8.3 Notification: The Purchaser shall, upon becoming aware or being put on notice of the existence of a Claim with respect to which it and/or the Company may be entitled to indemnification pursuant to this Article 8, promptly notify the Seller in writing of such matter. If through any fault of the Purchaser, the Seller does not receive notice of any Claim with respect to which the Purchaser and/or the Company may be entitled to indemnification hereunder in time to contest, the Seller shall not be obligated to indemnify the Purchaser and/or the Company with respect thereto; provided that the Purchaser shall be deemed to have notified the Seller by giving written notice of any such Claim to the Seller in the manner provided in Section 9.1 hereto.

addition, except as hereinafter provided, neither the Purchaser nor the Company (and Subsidiaries) or its successors or assigns shall pay or voluntarily permit the determination of any Claim while the Seller is negotiating the settlement thereof or litigating the Claim, except with the prior written consent of the Seller.

 

8.6 Assumption by Indemnitee: Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, the Purchaser and/or the Company (and Subsidiaries) may, by releasing the Seller from liability to him, her or it with respect to such Claim, take over and assume the settlement and defense of any Claim.

 

8.7 Setoff: Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, and as a non-exclusive alternative to the right of the Purchaser to indemnification hereunder, and in addition to all other remedies provided by law, but subject to the provisions hereof, the Purchaser has the absolute and unconditional right to set off the amount of any Claim against unpaid installments of the cash portion of the Purchase Price as they become due under Section 1.3(b), above. If the disposition of any Claim results in a payment being made by the Company (and Subsidiaries) or by the Purchaser of cash or other evidence of value, such setoff shall be accomplished by a reduction in the amount of the next due installment, and thereafter of each succeeding installment, until the amount of such setoff has been deducted in full.

If within 10 days of the giving of such notice, the Seller shall notify the Purchaser that the Seller does not agree with the amount or validity of the Claim, and if the amount and validity of the Claim has not theretofore been determined by a final order of a court of competent jurisdiction, then at the time the payment to the Seller against which the right of setoff is asserted becomes due, the Purchaser shall deposit the amount of the asserted setoff with an escrow agent mutually acceptable to the parties. If the parties are unable to agree on a mutually acceptable escrow agent, each party shall choose an escrow agent, ant the two escrow agents shall then choose a third escrow agent to serve as escrow agent hereunder. Any such deposit by Purchaser shall be deemed to constitute the fulfillment of its obligation to make payment to the Seller of the amount so deposited, and conversely, any failure to make such deposit shall be deemed a default under Section 1.3(b).
