Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if, on any Interest Payment Date the Company has elected to pay accrued interest in the form of Common Stock but the Company is not permitted to pay accrued interest in Common Stock because it fails to satisfy the conditions for payment in Common Stock set forth in Section 2(a) herein, then, at the option of the Holder, the Company, in lieu of delivering either shares of Common Stock pursuant to this Section 2 or paying the regularly scheduled interest payment in cash, shall deliver, within three (3) Trading Days of each applicable Interest Payment Date, an amount in cash equal to the product of (x) the number of shares of Common Stock otherwise deliverable to the Holder in connection with the payment of interest due on such Interest Payment Date multiplied by (y) the highest VWAP during the period commencing on the Interest Payment Date and ending on the Trading Day prior to the date such payment is actually made.

 

e)         Prepayment. Except as otherwise set forth in this Debenture, the Company may not prepay any portion of the principal amount of this Debenture without the prior written consent of the Holder.

 

Section 3.         Registration of Transfers and Exchanges.

 

a)         Different Denominations. This Debenture is exchangeable for an equal aggregate principal amount of Debentures of different authorized denominations, as requested by the Holder surrendering the same. No service charge will be payable for such registration of transfer or exchange.

 

b)         Investment Representations. This Debenture has been issued subject to certain investment representations of the original Holder set forth in the Purchase Agreement and may be transferred or exchanged only in compliance with the Purchase Agreement and applicable federal and state securities laws and regulations.

 

c)         Reliance on Debenture Register. Prior to due presentment for transfer to the Company of this Debenture, the Company and any agent of the Company may treat the Person in whose name this Debenture is duly registered on the Debenture Register as the owner hereof for the purpose of receiving payment as herein provided and for all other purposes, whether or not this Debenture is overdue, and neither the Company nor any such agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary.

Section 4.         Conversion.

 

a)         Voluntary Conversion. At any time after the Original Issue Date until this Debenture is no longer outstanding, this Debenture shall be convertible, in whole or in part, into shares of Common Stock at the option of the Holder, at any time and from time to time (subject to the conversion limitations set forth in Section 4(d) hereof). The Holder shall effect conversions by delivering to the Company a Notice of Conversion, the form of which is attached hereto as Annex A (each, a “Notice of Conversion”), specifying therein the principal amount of this Debenture to be converted and the date on which such conversion shall be effected (such date, the “Conversion Date”). If no Conversion Date is specified in a Notice of Conversion, the Conversion Date shall be the date that such Notice of Conversion is deemed delivered hereunder. No ink-original Notice of Conversion shall be required, nor shall any medallion guarantee (or other type of guarantee or notarization) of any Notice of Conversion form be required. To effect conversions hereunder, the Holder shall not be required to physically surrender this Debenture to the Company unless the entire principal amount of this Debenture, plus all accrued and unpaid interest thereon, has been so converted. Conversions hereunder shall have the effect of lowering the outstanding principal amount of this Debenture in an amount equal to the applicable conversion. The Holder and the Company shall maintain records showing the principal amount(s) converted and the date of such conversion(s). In the event of any dispute or discrepancy, the records of the Holder shall be controlling and determinative in the absence of manifest error. The Holder, and any assignee by acceptance of this Debenture, acknowledge and agree that, by reason of the provisions of this paragraph, following conversion of a portion of this Debenture, the unpaid and unconverted principal amount of this Debenture may be less than the amount stated on the face hereof.

 

b)         Conversion Price. The conversion price in effect on any Conversion Date shall be equal to $1.33, subject to adjustment herein (the “Conversion Price”).

 

c)         Mechanics of Conversion.

 

i.         Conversion Shares Issuable Upon Conversion of Principal Amount. The number of Conversion Shares issuable upon a conversion hereunder shall be determined by the quotient obtained by dividing (x) the outstanding principal amount of this Debenture to be converted by (y) the Conversion Price.

 

ii.         Delivery of Certificate Upon Conversion. Not later than three (3) Trading Days after each Conversion Date (the “Share Delivery Date”), the Company shall deliver, or cause to be delivered, to the Holder (A) a certificate or certificates representing the Conversion Shares which, on or after the six month anniversary of the Original Issue Date, shall be free of restrictive legends and trading restrictions (other than those which may then be required by the Purchase Agreement) representing the number of Conversion Shares being acquired upon the conversion of this Debenture (including, if the Company has given continuous notice pursuant to Section 2(b) for payment of interest in shares of Common Stock at least seven (7) Trading Days prior to the date on which the Notice of Conversion is delivered to the Company, shares of Common Stock equal to (x) accrued and unpaid interest on the principal amount being converted plus, if the applicable conversion is during the Make-Whole Period, the Make-Whole Amount divided by (y) the Stock Payment Rate assuming that the Conversion Date is an Interest Payment Date) and (B) a bank check in the amount of accrued and unpaid interest and, if the applicable conversion is during the Make-Whole Period, the Make-Whole Amount in cash (if the Company has elected or is required to pay accrued interest in cash). On or after the six month anniversary of the Original Issue Date, the Company shall deliver any certificate or certificates required to be delivered by the Company under this Section 4(c) electronically through DTC provided that (i) the Company is in compliance with the current public information requirements of Rule 144 and (ii) the Holder has delivered to the Company a broker representation letter that the shares of Common Stock represented by such certificates have been sold pursuant to Rule 144.

 

 14 

 

 

iii.         Failure to Deliver Certificates. If, in the case of any Notice of Conversion, such certificate or certificates are not delivered to or as directed by the applicable Holder by the Share Delivery Date, the Holder shall be entitled to elect by written notice to the Company at any time on or before its receipt of such certificate or certificates, to rescind such Conversion, in which event the Company shall promptly return to the Holder any original Debenture delivered to the Company and the Holder shall promptly return to the Company the Common Stock certificates issued to such Holder pursuant to the rescinded Conversion Notice.

 

iv.         Obligation Absolute; Partial Liquidated Damages. The Company’s obligations to issue and deliver the Conversion Shares upon conversion of this Debenture in accordance with the terms hereof are absolute and unconditional, irrespective of any action or inaction by the Holder to enforce the same, any waiver or consent with respect to any provision hereof, the recovery of any judgment against any Person or any action to enforce the same, or any setoff, counterclaim, recoupment, limitation or termination, or any breach or alleged breach by the Holder or any other Person of any obligation to the Company or any violation or alleged violation of law by the Holder or any other Person, and irrespective of any other circumstance which might otherwise limit such obligation of the Company to the Holder in connection with the issuance of such Conversion Shares; provided, however, that such delivery shall not operate as a waiver by the Company of any such action the Company may have against the Holder. In the event the Holder of this Debenture shall elect to convert any or all of the outstanding principal amount hereof, the Company may not refuse conversion based on any claim that the Holder or anyone associated or affiliated with the Holder has been engaged in any violation of law, agreement or for any other reason, unless an injunction from a court, on notice to Holder, restraining and or enjoining conversion of all or part of this Debenture shall have been sought and obtained, and the Company posts a surety bond for the benefit of the Holder in the amount of 150% of the outstanding principal amount of this Debenture, which is subject to the injunction, which bond shall remain in effect until the completion of arbitration/litigation of the underlying dispute and the proceeds of which shall be payable to the Holder to the extent it obtains judgment. In the absence of such injunction, the Company shall issue Conversion Shares or, if applicable, cash, upon a properly noticed conversion. If the Company fails for any reason to deliver to the Holder such certificate or certificates pursuant to Section 4(c)(ii) by the second Trading Day following the Share Delivery Date, the Company shall pay to the Holder, in cash, as partial liquidated damages and not as a penalty, for each $1,000 of principal amount being converted, $10 per Trading Day (increasing to $20 per Trading Day on the fifth (5th) Trading Day after such liquidated damages begin to accrue) for each Trading Day after the second Trading Day following such Share Delivery Date until such certificates are delivered or Holder rescinds such conversion; provided, however, if the Company has failed to deliver a certificate or certificates pursuant to Section 4(c)(ii) by the Share Delivery Date more than twice in any twelve (12) month period, then such partial liquidated damages shall begin to accrue on the Share Delivery Date. Nothing herein shall limit a Holder’s right to pursue actual damages or declare an Event of Default pursuant to Section 8 hereof for the Company’s failure to deliver Conversion Shares within the period specified herein and the Holder shall have the right to pursue all remedies available to it hereunder, at law or in equity including, without limitation, a decree of specific performance and/or injunctive relief. The exercise of any such rights shall not prohibit the Holder from seeking to enforce damages pursuant to any other Section hereof or under applicable law.

 

 15 

 

 

v.         Compensation for Buy-In on Failure to Timely Deliver Certificates Upon Conversion. In addition to any other rights available to the Holder, if the Company fails for any reason to deliver to the Holder such certificate or certificates by the Share Delivery Date pursuant to Section 4(c)(ii), and if after such Share Delivery Date the Holder is required by its brokerage firm to purchase (in an open market transaction or otherwise), or the Holder’s brokerage firm otherwise purchases, shares of Common Stock to deliver in satisfaction of a sale by the Holder of the Conversion Shares which the Holder was entitled to receive upon the conversion relating to such Share Delivery Date (a “Buy-In”), then the Company shall (A) pay in cash to the Holder (in addition to any other remedies available to or elected by the Holder) the amount, if any, by which (x) the Holder’s total purchase price (including any brokerage commissions) for the Common Stock so purchased exceeds (y) the product of (1) the aggregate number of shares of Common Stock that the Holder was entitled to receive from the conversion at issue multiplied by (2) the actual sale price at which the sell order giving rise to such purchase obligation was executed (including any brokerage commissions) and (B) at the option of the Holder, either reissue (if surrendered) this Debenture in a principal amount equal to the principal amount of the attempted conversion (in which case such conversion shall be deemed rescinded) or deliver to the Holder the number of shares of Common Stock that would have been issued if the Company had timely complied with its delivery requirements under Section 4(c)(ii). For example, if the Holder purchases Common Stock having a total purchase price of $11,000 to cover a Buy-In with respect to an attempted conversion of this Debenture with respect to which the actual sale price of the Conversion Shares (including any brokerage commissions) giving rise to such purchase obligation was a total of $10,000 under clause (A) of the immediately preceding sentence, the Company shall be required to pay the Holder $1,000. The Holder shall provide the Company written notice indicating the amounts payable to the Holder in respect of the Buy-In and, upon request of the Company, evidence of the amount of such loss. Nothing herein shall limit a Holder’s right to pursue any other remedies available to it hereunder, at law or in equity including, without limitation, a decree of specific performance and/or injunctive relief with respect to the Company’s failure to timely deliver certificates representing shares of Common Stock upon conversion of this Debenture as required pursuant to the terms hereof.

 

 16 

 

 

vi.         Reservation of Shares Issuable Upon Conversion. The Company covenants that it will at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized and unissued shares of Common Stock for the sole purpose of issuance upon conversion of this Debenture and payment of interest on this Debenture, each as herein provided, free from preemptive rights or any other actual contingent purchase rights of Persons other than the Holder (and the other holders of the Debentures), not less than such aggregate number of shares of the Common Stock as shall (subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Purchase Agreement) be issuable (taking into account the adjustments and restrictions of Section 5) upon the conversion of the then outstanding principal amount of this Debenture and payment of interest hereunder. The Company covenants that all shares of Common Stock that shall be so issuable shall, upon issue, be duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable.

 

vii.         Fractional Shares. No fractional shares or scrip representing fractional shares shall be issued upon the conversion of this Debenture. As to any fraction of a share which the Holder would otherwise be entitled to purchase upon such conversion, the Company shall at its election, either pay a cash adjustment in respect of such final fraction in an amount equal to such fraction multiplied by the Conversion Price or round up to the next whole share.

 

viii.         Transfer Taxes and Expenses. The issuance of certificates for shares of the Common Stock on conversion of this Debenture shall be made without charge to the Holder hereof for any documentary stamp or similar taxes that may be payable in respect of the issue or delivery of such certificates, provided that, the Company shall not be required to pay any tax that may be payable in respect of any transfer involved in the issuance and delivery of any such certificate upon conversion in a name other than that of the Holder of this Debenture so converted and the Company shall not be required to issue or deliver such certificates unless or until the Person or Persons requesting the issuance thereof shall have paid to the Company the amount of such tax or shall have established to the satisfaction of the Company that such tax has been paid. The Company shall pay all Transfer Agent fees required for processing of any Notice of Conversion and all fees to DTC (or another established clearing corporation performing similar functions) required for same-day electronic delivery of the Conversion Shares.

 

 17 

 

 

d)         Holder’s Conversion Limitations. The Company shall not effect any conversion of this Debenture, and a Holder shall not have the right to convert any portion of this Debenture, to the extent that after giving effect to the conversion set forth on the applicable Notice of Conversion, the Holder (together with the Holder’s Affiliates, and any Persons acting as a group together with the Holder or any of the Holder’s Affiliates) would beneficially own in excess of the Beneficial Ownership Limitation (as defined below).  For purposes of this Section 4(d), beneficial ownership shall be calculated in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder. To the extent that the limitation contained in this Section 4(d) applies, the determination of whether this Debenture is convertible (in relation to other securities owned by the Holder together with any Affiliates) and of which principal amount of this Debenture is convertible shall be in the sole discretion of the Holder, and the submission of a Notice of Conversion shall be deemed to be the Holder’s determination of whether this Debenture may be converted (in relation to other securities owned by the Holder together with any Affiliates) and which principal amount of this Debenture is convertible, in each case subject to the Beneficial Ownership Limitation. To ensure compliance with this restriction, the Holder will be deemed to represent to the Company each time it delivers a Notice of Conversion that such Notice of Conversion has not violated the restrictions set forth in this paragraph and the Company shall have no obligation to verify or confirm the accuracy of such determination. In addition, a determination as to any group status as contemplated above shall be determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder. For purposes of this Section 4(d), in determining the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock, the Holder may rely on the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock as stated in the most recent of the following: (i) the Company’s most recent periodic or annual report filed with the Commission, as the case may be, (ii) a more recent public announcement by the Company, or (iii) a more recent written notice by the Company or the Company’s transfer agent setting forth the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding.  Upon the written or oral request of a Holder, the Company shall within two Trading Days confirm orally and in writing to the Holder the number of shares of Common Stock then outstanding.  In any case, the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock shall be determined after giving effect to the conversion or exercise of securities of the Company, including this Debenture, by the Holder or its Affiliates since the date as of which such number of outstanding shares of Common Stock was reported. The “Beneficial Ownership Limitation” shall be 4.99% of the number of shares of the Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the issuance of shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of this Debenture held by the Holder. The Holder, upon not less than sixty one (61) days’ prior notice to the Company, may increase or decrease the Beneficial Ownership Limitation provisions of this Section 4(d), provided that the Beneficial Ownership Limitation in no event exceeds 9.99% of the number of shares of the Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the issuance of shares of Common Stock upon conversion of this Debenture held by the Holder and the Beneficial Ownership Limitation provisions of this Section 4(d) shall continue to apply. Any such increase or decrease will not be effective until the sixty first (61st) day after such notice is delivered to the Company. The Beneficial Ownership Limitation provisions of this paragraph shall be construed and implemented in a manner otherwise than in strict conformity with the terms of this Section 4(d) to correct this paragraph (or any portion hereof) which may be defective or inconsistent with the intended Beneficial Ownership Limitation contained herein or to make changes or supplements necessary or desirable to properly give effect to such limitation. The limitations contained in this paragraph shall apply to a successor holder of this Debenture.

 

 18 

 

 

e)         Principal Market Regulation. The Company shall not issue any shares of Common Stock pursuant to the terms of this Debenture if the issuance of such shares of Common Stock would exceed the aggregate number of shares of Common Stock which the Company may issue pursuant to the terms of (x) this Debenture, (y) the Senior Convertible Note, dated November 12, 2015 (the “Dominion Note”), issued by the Company to Dominion Capital LLC (“Dominion”) in connection with that certain Securities Purchase Agreement, dated as of November 12, 2015, by and between the Company and Dominion, and (z) the three Senior Convertible Notes (together, the “Exchange Notes”) issued by the Company to Dominion in connection with that certain Exchange Agreement, dated November 12, 2015, by and among the Company, all of the Company’s subsidiaries party thereto and Dominion without breaching the Company’s obligations under the rules or regulations of the Principal Market, which number of shares of Common Stock is 5,245,755 (the number of shares which may be issued without violating such rules and regulations, the “Exchange Cap”), except that such limitation shall not apply in the event that the Company (A) obtains the approval of its stockholders as required by the applicable rules of the principal market for issuances of shares of Common Stock in excess of such amount or (B) obtains a written opinion from outside counsel to the Company that such approval is not required, which opinion shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Holder.

 

Section 5.         Certain Adjustments.

 

a)         Stock Dividends and Stock Splits. If the Company, at any time while this Debenture is outstanding: (i) pays a stock dividend or otherwise makes a distribution or distributions payable in shares of Common Stock on shares of Common Stock or any Common Stock Equivalents (which, for avoidance of doubt, shall not include any shares of Common Stock issued by the Company upon conversion of, or payment of interest on, the Debentures), (ii) subdivides outstanding shares of Common Stock into a larger number of shares, (iii) combines (including by way of a reverse stock split) outstanding shares of Common Stock into a smaller number of shares or (iv) issues, in the event of a reclassification of shares of the Common Stock, any shares of capital stock of the Company, then the Conversion Price shall be multiplied by a fraction of which the numerator shall be the number of shares of Common Stock (excluding any treasury shares of the Company) outstanding immediately before such event, and of which the denominator shall be the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after such event. Any adjustment made pursuant to this Section shall become effective immediately after the record date for the determination of stockholders entitled to receive such dividend or distribution and shall become effective immediately after the effective date in the case of a subdivision, combination or re-classification.

 

 19 

 

 

b)         Subsequent Equity Sales.

 

(i)         If, at any time while this Debenture is outstanding the Company or any Subsidiary, as applicable, sells or grants any option to purchase or sells or grants any right to reprice, or otherwise disposes of or issues (or announces any sale, grant or any option to purchase or other disposition), any Common Stock or Common Stock Equivalents entitling any Person to acquire shares of Common Stock at an effective price per share that is lower than the then Conversion Price (such issuances, collectively, a “Dilutive Issuance”) (if the holder of the Common Stock or Common Stock Equivalents so issued shall at any time, whether by operation of purchase price adjustments, reset provisions, floating conversion, exercise or exchange prices or otherwise, or due to warrants, options or rights per share which are issued in connection with such issuance, be entitled to receive shares of Common Stock at an effective price per share that is lower than the Conversion Price, such issuance shall be deemed to have occurred for less than the Conversion Price on such date of the Dilutive Issuance), then the Conversion Price shall be reduced, and only reduced, to an amount equal to 120% of such lower price (such lower price, the “Base Conversion Price”). Such adjustment shall be made whenever such Common Stock or Common Stock Equivalents are issued. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no adjustment will be made under this Section 5(b)(i) in respect of an Exempt Issuance. The Company shall notify the Holder in writing, no later than the Trading Day following the issuance of any Common Stock or Common Stock Equivalents subject to this Section 5(b)(i), indicating therein the applicable issuance price, or applicable reset price, exchange price, conversion price and other pricing terms (such notice, the “Dilutive Issuance Notice”).

 

(ii)         Intentionally Omitted.

 

(iii)         For purposes of clarification, whether or not the Company provides a Dilutive Issuance Notice pursuant to this Section 5(b), upon the occurrence of any Dilutive Issuance the Holder is entitled to receive a number of Conversion Shares based upon the Base Conversion Price on or after the date of such Dilutive Issuance regardless of whether the Holder accurately refers to the Base Conversion Price in the Notice of Conversion.

 

c)         Subsequent Rights Offerings. In addition to any adjustments pursuant to Section 5(a) above, if at any time the Company grants, issues or sells any Common Stock Equivalents or rights to purchase stock, warrants, securities or other property pro rata to the record holders of any class of shares of Common Stock (the “Purchase Rights”), then the Holder will be entitled to acquire, upon the terms applicable to such Purchase Rights, the aggregate Purchase Rights which the Holder could have acquired if the Holder had held the number of shares of Common Stock acquirable upon complete conversion of this Debenture (without regard to any limitations on exercise hereof, including without limitation, the Beneficial Ownership Limitation) immediately before the date on which a record is taken for the grant, issuance or sale of such Purchase Rights, or, if no such record is taken, the date as of which the record holders of shares of Common Stock are to be determined for the grant, issue or sale of such Purchase Rights (provided, however, to the extent that the Holder’s right to participate in any such Purchase Right would result in the Holder exceeding the Beneficial Ownership Limitation, then the Holder shall not be entitled to participate in such Purchase Right to such extent (or beneficial ownership of such shares of Common Stock as a result of such Purchase Right to such extent) and such Purchase Right to such extent shall be held in abeyance for the Holder until such time, if ever, as its right thereto would not result in the Holder exceeding the Beneficial Ownership Limitation).

 

 20 

 

 

d)         Pro Rata Distributions. During such time as this Debenture is outstanding, if the Company shall declare or make any dividend or other distribution of its assets (or rights to acquire its assets) to holders of shares of Common Stock, by way of return of capital or otherwise (including, without limitation, any distribution of cash, stock or other securities, property or options by way of a dividend, spin off, reclassification, corporate rearrangement, scheme of arrangement or other similar transaction) (a "Distribution"), at any time after the issuance of this Debenture, then, in each such case, the Holder shall be entitled to participate in such Distribution to the same extent that the Holder would have participated therein if the Holder had held the number of shares of Common Stock acquirable upon complete exercise of this Debenture (without regard to any limitations on exercise hereof, including without limitation, the Beneficial Ownership Limitation) immediately before the date of which a record is taken for such Distribution, or, if no such record is taken, the date as of which the record holders of shares of Common Stock are to be determined for the participation in such Distribution (provided, however, to the extent that the Holder's right to participate in any such Distribution would result in the Holder exceeding the Beneficial Ownership Limitation, then the Holder shall not be entitled to participate in such Distribution to such extent (or in the beneficial ownership of any shares of Common Stock as a result of such Distribution to such extent) and the portion of such Distribution shall be held in abeyance for the benefit of the Holder until such time, if ever, as its right thereto would not result in the Holder exceeding the Beneficial Ownership Limitation).

 

e)         Fundamental Transaction. If, at any time while this Debenture is outstanding, (i) the Company, directly or indirectly, in one or more related transactions effects any merger or consolidation of the Company with or into another Person, (ii) the Company, directly or indirectly, effects any sale, lease, license, assignment, transfer, conveyance or other disposition of all or substantially all of its assets in one or a series of related transactions, (iii) any, direct or indirect, purchase offer, tender offer or exchange offer (whether by the Company or another Person) is completed pursuant to which holders of Common Stock are permitted to sell, tender or exchange their shares for other securities, cash or property and has been accepted by the holders of fifty percent (50%) or more of the outstanding Common Stock, (iv) the Company, directly or indirectly, in one or more related transactions effects any reclassification, reorganization or recapitalization of the Common Stock or any compulsory share exchange pursuant to which the Common Stock is effectively converted into or exchanged for other securities, cash or property, (v) the Company, directly or indirectly, in one or more related transactions consummates a stock or share purchase agreement or other business combination (including, without limitation, a reorganization, recapitalization, spin-off or scheme of arrangement) with another Person whereby such other Person acquires more than fifty percent (50%) of the outstanding shares of Common Stock (not including any shares of Common Stock held by the other Person or other Persons making or party to, or associated or affiliated with the other Persons making or party to, such stock or share purchase agreement or other business combination) (each a “Fundamental Transaction”), then, upon any subsequent conversion of this Debenture, the Holder shall have the right to receive, for each Conversion Share that would have been issuable upon such conversion immediately prior to the occurrence of such Fundamental Transaction (without regard to any limitation in Section 4(d) on the conversion of this Debenture), the number of shares of capital stock of the successor or acquiring corporation or of the Company, if it is the surviving corporation, and any additional consideration (the “Alternate Consideration”) receivable as a result of such Fundamental Transaction by a holder of the number of shares of Common Stock for which this Debenture is convertible immediately prior to such Fundamental Transaction (without regard to any limitation in Section 4(d) on the conversion of this Debenture). For purposes of any such conversion, the determination of the Conversion Price shall be appropriately adjusted to apply to such Alternate Consideration based on the amount of Alternate Consideration issuable in respect of one (1) share of Common Stock in such Fundamental Transaction, and the Company shall apportion the Conversion Price among the Alternate Consideration in a reasonable manner reflecting the relative value of any different components of the Alternate Consideration. If holders of Common Stock are given any choice as to the securities, cash or property to be received in a Fundamental Transaction, then the Holder shall be given the same choice as to the Alternate Consideration it receives upon any conversion of this Debenture following such Fundamental Transaction. The Company shall cause any successor entity in a Fundamental Transaction in which the Company is not the survivor (the “Successor Entity”) to assume in writing all of the obligations of the Company under this Debenture and the other Transaction Documents (as defined in the Purchase Agreement) in accordance with the provisions of this Section 5(e) pursuant to written agreements in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Holder and approved by the Holder (without unreasonable delay) prior to such Fundamental Transaction and shall, at the option of the holder of this Debenture, deliver to the Holder in exchange for this Debenture a security of the Successor Entity evidenced by a written instrument substantially similar in form and substance to this Debenture which is convertible for a corresponding number of shares of capital stock of such Successor Entity (or its parent entity) equivalent to the shares of Common Stock acquirable and receivable upon conversion of this Debenture (without regard to any limitations on the conversion of this Debenture) prior to such Fundamental Transaction, and with a conversion price which applies the conversion price hereunder to such shares of capital stock (but taking into account the relative value of the shares of Common Stock pursuant to such Fundamental Transaction and the value of such shares of capital stock, such number of shares of capital stock and such conversion price being for the purpose of protecting the economic value of this Debenture immediately prior to the consummation of such Fundamental Transaction), and which is reasonably satisfactory in form and substance to the Holder. Upon the occurrence of any such Fundamental Transaction, the Successor Entity shall succeed to, and be substituted for (so that from and after the date of such Fundamental Transaction, the provisions of this Debenture and the other Transaction Documents referring to the “Company” shall refer instead to the Successor Entity), and may exercise every right and power of the Company and shall assume all of the obligations of the Company under this Debenture and the other Transaction Documents with the same effect as if such Successor Entity had been named as the Company herein.

 

 21 

 

 

f)         Calculations. All calculations under this Section 5 shall be made to the nearest cent or the nearest 1/100th of a share, as the case may be. For purposes of this Section 5, the number of shares of Common Stock deemed to be issued and outstanding as of a given date shall be the sum of the number of shares of Common Stock (excluding any treasury shares of the Company) issued and outstanding.

 

g)         Notice to the Holder.

 

i.         Adjustment to Conversion Price. Whenever the Conversion Price is adjusted pursuant to any provision of this Section 5, the Company shall promptly deliver to the Holder a notice setting forth the Conversion Price after such adjustment and setting forth a brief statement of the facts requiring such adjustment.

 

ii.         Notice to Allow Conversion by Holder. If (A) the Company shall declare a dividend (or any other distribution in whatever form) on the Common Stock, (B) the Company shall declare a special nonrecurring cash dividend on or a redemption of the Common Stock, (C) the Company shall authorize the granting to all holders of the Common Stock of rights or warrants to subscribe for or purchase any shares of capital stock of any class or of any rights, (D) the approval of any stockholders of the Company shall be required in connection with any reclassification of the Common Stock, any consolidation or merger to which the Company is a party, any sale or transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company, or any compulsory share exchange whereby the Common Stock is converted into other securities, cash or property or (E) the Company shall authorize the voluntary or involuntary dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the affairs of the Company, then, in each case, the Company shall cause to be filed at each office or agency maintained for the purpose of conversion of this Debenture, and shall cause to be delivered to the Holder at its last address as it shall appear upon the Debenture Register, at least twenty (20) calendar days prior to the applicable record or effective date hereinafter specified, a notice stating (x) the date on which a record is to be taken for the purpose of such dividend, distribution, redemption, rights or warrants, or if a record is not to be taken, the date as of which the holders of the Common Stock of record to be entitled to such dividend, distributions, redemption, rights or warrants are to be determined or (y) the date on which such reclassification, consolidation, merger, sale, transfer or share exchange is expected to become effective or close, and the date as of which it is expected that holders of the Common Stock of record shall be entitled to exchange their shares of the Common Stock for securities, cash or other property deliverable upon such reclassification, consolidation, merger, sale, transfer or share exchange, provided that the failure to deliver such notice or any defect therein or in the delivery thereof shall not affect the validity of the corporate action required to be specified in such notice. To the extent that any notice provided hereunder constitutes, or contains, material, non-public information regarding the Company or any of the Subsidiaries, the Company shall simultaneously file such notice with the Commission pursuant to a Current Report on Form 8-K. The Holder shall remain entitled to convert this Debenture during the 20-day period commencing on the date of such notice through the effective date of the event triggering such notice except as may otherwise be expressly set forth herein.

 

 22 

 

 

Section 6.         Optional Redemption.

 

a)         Optional Redemption at Election of Company.

 

i.         Subject to the provisions of this Section 6(a), at any time after the Original Issue Date and provided that the Equity Conditions are satisfied during the Optional Redemption Period, the Company may deliver a notice to the Holder (an “Optional Redemption Notice” and the date such notice is deemed delivered hereunder, the “Optional Redemption Notice Date”) of its irrevocable election to redeem all, but not less than all, of the then outstanding principal amount of this Debenture for cash in an amount equal to the Optional Redemption Amount plus, if the Company has not already made the Special Interest Payment, the Optional Redemption Premium, on the twentieth (20th) Trading Day following the Optional Redemption Notice Date (such date, the “Optional Redemption Date”, such 20 Trading Day period, the “Optional Redemption Period” and such redemption, the “Optional Redemption”). The Optional Redemption Amount and the Optional Redemption Premium, if applicable, is payable in full on the Optional Redemption Date. The Optional Redemption Premium, if applicable, shall be payable in cash or, at the Company’s option, in fully paid, duly authorized and non-assessable shares of Common Stock at the Stock Payment Rate; provided, the Company complies with the requirements set forth below in Section 6(a)(iii). The Company covenants and agrees that it will honor all Notices of Conversion tendered from the time of delivery of the Optional Redemption Notice through the date all amounts owing thereon are due and paid in full. The Company’s determination to pay an Optional Redemption in cash shall be applied ratably to all of the holders of the then outstanding Debentures based on their (or their predecessor’s) initial purchases of Debentures pursuant to the Purchase Agreement. The Company will, concurrently with the delivery of the Optional Redemption Notice to the Holder, publicly announce its intention to redeem the Debenture by means of a press release and Current Report on Form 8-K. For the avoidance of doubt, the Optional Redemption Amount is payable only in cash; only the Optional Redemption Premium, if applicable, may be paid in shares of Common Stock.

 

 23 

 

 

ii.         The payment of cash and, if applicable, Common Stock, pursuant to an Optional Redemption shall be payable on the Optional Redemption Date. If any portion of the payment pursuant to an Optional Redemption shall not be paid by the Company by the applicable due date, interest shall accrue thereon at an interest rate equal to the lesser of fifteen percent (15%) per annum or the maximum rate permitted by applicable law until such amount is paid in full. Notwithstanding anything herein contained to the contrary, if any portion of the Optional Redemption Amount and, if applicable, Optional Redemption Premium, remains unpaid after such applicable date, or if the Equity Conditions are not satisfied during the Optional Redemption Period, the Holder may elect, by written notice to the Company given at any time thereafter, to invalidate such Optional Redemption, ab initio, and the Company shall have no further right to exercise such Optional Redemption. The Holder may elect to convert the outstanding principal amount of the Debenture pursuant to Section 4 prior to actual payment in cash for any redemption under this Section 6(a) by the delivery of a Notice of Conversion to the Company.

 

iii.         To the extent that the Company desires to pay the Optional Redemption Premium in shares of Common Stock, then (i) the Company shall give the Holder notice in accordance with the notice requirements set forth below and (ii) on the Optional Redemption Notice Date, the Company shall have delivered to the Holder’s account with DTC a number of shares of Common Stock to be applied against such Optional Redemption Premium equal to the quotient of (x) the Optional Redemption Premium divided by (y) the Stock Payment Rate assuming for such purposes that the Optional Redemption Date is the Trading Day immediately prior to Optional Redemption Notice Date (the “Optional Redemption Advance Shares”). Subject to the terms and conditions herein, the decision whether to pay the Optional Redemption Premium hereunder in cash or shares of Common Stock shall be at the sole discretion of the Company. On the Optional Redemption Notice Date, the Company shall deliver to the Holder a written notice of its election to pay the Optional Redemption Premium hereunder on the Optional Redemption Date either in cash or shares of Common Stock. The Company’s election shall be irrevocable. Subject to the aforementioned conditions, failure to deliver such written notice on the Optional Redemption Notice Date to the Holder shall be deemed an election by the Company to pay the Optional Redemption Premium in cash. The aggregate number of shares of Common Stock otherwise issuable to the Holder on the Optional Redemption Date shall be reduced by the number of Optional Redemption Advance Shares previously issued to the Holder. In the event that the Optional Redemption Advance Shares in respect of any Optional Redemption Notice would exceed the Dollar Volume Limitation, then the Company shall pay the portion of the Optional Redemption Advance Shares that would be in excess of the Dollar Volume Limitation in cash.

 

 24 

 

 

b)         Optional Redemption at Election of Holder.

 

i.         Commencing on February 29, 2016, the Holder shall have the right, at its option, to require the Company to redeem up to $350,000 of the outstanding principal amount (plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon) plus, during the Make-Whole Period, the Make-Whole Amount (the “Monthly Allowance”) per calendar month (the “Holder Redemption Right”). The Holder may exercise its Holder Redemption Right for a calendar month, at any time and from time to time, during such calendar month, by sending one or more written notices, the form of which is attached hereto as Annex B (each a “Holder Redemption Notice”), to the Company by not later than 11:59:59 P.M. (local time in New York City, New York) on the last Trading Day of such calendar month, which Holder Redemption Notices shall specify the principal amount to be redeemed and the amount of accrued and unpaid interest thereon and, if applicable, the Make-Whole Amount (together, the “Holder Redemption Amount”). The Company shall promptly, but in any event no more than three (3) Trading Days after the date that the Holder delivers a Holder Redemption Notice to the Company (the “Holder Redemption Payment Date”), pay the applicable Holder Redemption Amount (1) in cash by wire transfer of immediately available funds to the extent that this Debenture is Stock Off (as defined below) on the date that the Holder delivers the Holder Redemption Notice to the Company or (2) shares of Common Stock to the extent that this Debenture is Stock On (as defined below) on the date that the Company delivers the Holder Redemption Notice. For the avoidance of doubt, payment in cash or Common Stock shall be determined according to the status of the Debenture as Stock On or Stock Off on the date that the Holder delivers the Holder Redemption Notice to the Company and not the Holder Redemption Payment Date. For the further avoidance of doubt, the Holder and the Company agree that the Holder may deliver more than one Holder Redemption Notice during a calendar month provided that the sum of the Holder Redemption Amounts set forth in all of the Holder Redemption Notices delivered during such calendar month does not exceed the Monthly Allowance. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, in the event that the Company settles or compromises the FGI Litigation or a judgment is entered against the Company in in the FGI Litigation, in any case, for an amount in excess of $150,000 (such amount in excess of $150,000, the “FGI Resolution Amount”), the Holder shall have the right, at the Holder’s option, to require the Company to redeem pursuant to this Section 6(b) an additional amount equal to the FGI Resolution Amount, in whole or in part, at any time and from time to time (which time may be prior to February 29, 2016), and the Company acknowledges that in such event, that the aggregate Holder Redemption Amount set forth in all of the Holder Redemption Notices delivered during a calendar month may exceed the Monthly Allowance until the FGI Resolution Amount is reduced to zero. The “FGI Litigation” means InterCloud Systems, Inc., TNS Inc, Integration Partners – NY Corporation, ADEX Corporation, AW Solutions, Inc., as plaintiffs, against Faunus Group, Inc., Index No. 652720/2015, Supreme Court of the State of New York, New York County, and any other litigation, proceeding or action arising out of the same facts and circumstances in dispute in the foregoing.

 

 25 

 

 

ii.         At any time, and from time to time, subject to the provisions of this Section 6(b), the Company may deliver a written notice to the Holder that it will pay any Holder Redemption Amounts under Section 6(b)(i) in shares of Common Stock (a “Stock On Notice”) and any such notice shall become effective on the second (2nd) Trading Day after the Holder’s receipt thereof (the “Stock On Effective Date”). Such Stock On Notice shall certify that the Equity Conditions are satisfied and at any time that this Debenture is Stock On, the Company shall, upon the Holder’s request, certify in writing to the Holder that the Equity Conditions are satisfied. From the time that a Stock On Notice takes effect until such time that such Stock On Notice is withdrawn pursuant to Section 6(b)(iv) or deemed withdrawn pursuant to Section 6(b)(iii), this Debenture shall be deemed to be “Stock On.” At any time that this Debenture is not Stock On, then this Debenture shall be deemed to be “Stock Off.” For the avoidance of doubt, the Holder may deliver a Holder Redemption Notice during the period after receipt of the Stock On Notice but prior to the Stock On Effective Date; the Debenture shall be Stock Off during such period and, accordingly, the applicable Holder Redemption Amount would be payable in cash.

 

iii.         The Company may not deliver a Stock On Notice unless the Equity Conditions are then satisfied. If the Equity Conditions cease, for any reason, to be satisfied while this Debenture is Stock On, then the applicable Stock On Notice shall, automatically without any further action of the Company or the Holder, immediately be deemed to be withdrawn and this Debenture shall immediately be deemed to be Stock Off (an “Equity Conditions Failure”). The Company shall immediately notify the Holder of any Equity Conditions Failure.

 

iv.         The Company may voluntarily withdraw a Stock On Notice by delivering a written notice (a “Stock Off Notice”) to the Holder and such Stock On Notice shall be deemed withdrawn and this Debenture shall be Stock Off two (2) Trading Days after receipt thereof by the Holder (the “Voluntary Stock Off Effective Date”). For the avoidance of doubt, the Holder may deliver a Holder Redemption Notice during the period after receipt of the Stock Off Notice but prior to the Voluntary Stock Off Effective Date; the Debenture shall be Stock On during such period and, accordingly, the applicable Holder Redemption Amount would be payable in shares of Common Stock on the applicable Holder Redemption Payment Date as provided herein.

 

v.         With respect to each Holder Redemption Notice delivered to the Company pursuant to Section 6(b)(i) at a time when this Debenture was Stock On, subject to the provisions of this Section 6(b)(v), the Company shall, in payment of the Holder Redemption Amount deliver to the Holder a number of shares of Common Stock equal to the quotient of (such quotient of (x) and (y), the “Stock Payment Amount”) (x) the applicable Holder Redemption Amount and (y) the Stock Payment Rate by not later than the applicable Holder Redemption Payment Date. Notwithstanding the foregoing or any other provision herein to the contrary:

 

(A)         in the event any Equity Conditions Failure occurs after the delivery of the applicable Holder Redemption Notice at a time when this Debenture is Stock On but prior to the applicable Holder Redemption Payment Date, the Company shall pay to the Holder an amount in cash equal to the product of (i) the applicable Holder Redemption Amount divided by Stock Payment Amount and (ii) the highest VWAP for the Common Stock during the five (5) Trading Days immediately preceding the date of the applicable Holder Redemption Notice (such product of (i) and (ii), the “Stock Replacement Payment”);

 

 26 

 

 

(B)         in the event that the aggregate number of shares of Common Stock to be delivered to the Holder pursuant to this Section 6(b)(v) in respect of any individual Holder Redemption Notice would cause such Holder to exceed the Beneficial Ownership Limitation, then, (I) the Holder shall provide written notice to the Company that such delivery of all or a portion of such shares of Common Stock would cause Holder to exceed the Beneficial Ownership Limitation, and (II) in addition to delivery of the number of shares of Common Stock that would not cause such Holder to exceed the Beneficial Ownership Limitation, the Company shall pay to the Holder in lieu of such number of shares of Common Stock that would cause the Holder to exceed the Maximum Percentage (such excess number of shares, the “Excess Shares”), not more than the later of (x) the Holder Redemption Payment Date and (y) one (1) Trading Day after the date of the Holder’s written notice, an amount in cash equal to the portion of the Holder Redemption Amount that would otherwise be payable in respect of the Excess Shares;

 

(C)         in the event that the Holder Redemption Amount in respect of any Holder Redemption Notice would exceed the Dollar Volume Limitation, then the Company shall pay the portion of the Holder Redemption Amount that would be in excess of the Dollar Volume Limitation in cash.

 

Any shares of Common Stock required to be delivered by the Company to the Holder under this Section 6(b)(v) shall be credited to the Holder’s or its designee’s balance account with DTC through its Deposit/Withdrawal at Custodian system on the Holder Redemption Payment Date. In addition, the provisions of Section 4(c)(iv), Section 4(c)(v) and Section 8(a)(viii) shall apply to the delivery of shares of Common Stock under this Section 6(b)(v) mutatis mutandis as if each date when shares of Common Stock are required to be delivered under this Section 6(b) was a Share Delivery Date.

 

Section 7.         Covenants.

The Company covenants (to the extent that it may lawfully do so) that it shall not at any time insist upon, plead, or in any manner whatsoever claim or take the benefit or advantage of, any stay, extension or usury law or other law which would prohibit or forgive the Company from paying all or any portion of the principal of or interest on this Debenture as contemplated herein, wherever enacted, now or at any time hereafter in force, or which may affect the covenants or the performance of this Debenture, and the Company (to the extent it may lawfully do so) hereby expressly waives all benefits or advantage of any such law, and covenants that it will not, by resort to any such law, hinder, delay or impede the execution of any power herein granted to the Holder, but will suffer and permit the execution of every such as though no such law has been enacted.

 

g)         Remedies, Characterizations, Other Obligations, Breaches and Injunctive Relief.  The remedies provided in this Debenture shall be cumulative and in addition to all other remedies available under this Debenture and any of the other Transaction Documents at law or in equity (including a decree of specific performance and/or other injunctive relief), and nothing herein shall limit the Holder’s right to pursue actual and consequential damages for any failure by the Company to comply with the terms of this Debenture.  The Company covenants to the Holder that there shall be no characterization concerning this instrument other than as expressly provided herein. Amounts set forth or provided for herein with respect to payments, conversion and the like (and the computation thereof) shall be the amounts to be received by the Holder and shall not, except as expressly provided herein, be subject to any other obligation of the Company (or the performance thereof). The Company acknowledges that a breach by it of its obligations hereunder will cause irreparable harm to the Holder and that the remedy at law for any such breach may be inadequate. The Company therefore agrees that, in the event of any such breach or threatened breach, the Holder shall be entitled, in addition to all other available remedies, to an injunction restraining any such breach or any such threatened breach, without the necessity of showing economic loss and without any bond or other security being required. The Company shall provide all information and documentation to the Holder that is requested by the Holder to enable the Holder to confirm the Company’s compliance with the terms and conditions of this Debenture.

 

h)         Next Business Day. Whenever any payment or other obligation hereunder shall be due on a day other than a Business Day, such payment shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day.

 

i)         Headings. The headings contained herein are for convenience only, do not constitute a part of this Debenture and shall not be deemed to limit or affect any of the provisions hereof.

 

j)         Secured Obligation. The obligations of the Company under this Debenture are secured by all assets of the Company pursuant to the Security Agreement, dated as of December 29, 2015 between the Grantors (as defined therein) and the Secured Parties (as defined therein).
