The Company has delivered or made available to Purchasers complete and correct copies, as applicable, of the plan documents, the most recent determination letter received from the IRS, the most recent annual report (Form 5500, with all applicable attachments) and all other material documents pursuant to which each Employee Benefit Plan is maintained, funded and administered. Each Employee Benefit Plan (and each related trust, insurance contract or fund) has been maintained, funded and administered in all material respects in accordance with its terms and complies in all material respects in form and in operation with the applicable requirements of ERISA, the Code and other applicable Laws. Each Employee Benefit Plan that is intended to meet the requirements of a “qualified plan” under Section 401(a) of the Code has received a favorable determination letter (or may rely on a favorable opinion letter) from the IRS, and nothing has occurred that could reasonably be expected to cause the disqualification of such Employee Benefit Plan. Neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries maintains, sponsors, contributes to, has any obligation to contribute to, or has any current or potential liability or obligation under or with respect to (i) a “defined benefit plan” (as such term is defined in Section 3(35) of ERISA) or (ii) a “multiemployer plan” as defined in Section 3(37) of ERISA. Neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries has any current or potential obligation to provide post-employment health, life or other welfare benefits other than as required under Section 4980B of the Code or any similar applicable Law and there do not exist any pending or threatened claims (other than routine undisputed claims for benefits) or Actions with respect to any Employee Benefit Plan. The transactions contemplated by the this Agreement and the Transaction Agreements will not cause the acceleration of vesting in, or payment of, any benefits or compensation under any Employee Benefit Plan and will not otherwise accelerate or increase any liability or obligation under any Employee Benefit Plan.

8.22.         Compliance with Laws; Card Associations. Except as set forth on the attached Compliance Schedule, neither the Company nor any Subsidiary has violated any Law or any governmental regulation or requirement (including the applicable provisions of the Securities Act, the Exchange Act, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the applicable listing and corporate governance rules and regulations of NASDAQ) in any material respect, and neither the Company nor any Subsidiary has received any written notice of any such violation. Neither the Company nor any Subsidiary is subject to, or has reason to believe it may become subject to, any liability (contingent or otherwise) or corrective or remedial obligation arising under any Environmental and Safety Requirements. The Company and each of its Subsidiaries is registered by a member of and is in good standing with the Card Associations, and is in compliance in all material respects with the rules of, the Card Associations, except to the extent (and only to the extent) such Person’s business does not require such registration or where the failure to be so registered or in good standing would not be material. The Company’s and its Subsidiaries’ participation in any of the Card Association networks is not, either directly or indirectly including, without limitation through any sponsoring banks, prohibited or materially and adversely restricted. To the Company’s Knowledge, there is no investigation, proceeding or disciplinary action, including fines (other than any investigation, proceeding or disciplinary action involving a maximum potential fine of less than $5,000, excluding any late fees or other penalties if such fine is not timely paid), currently pending, or to the Knowledge of the Company, threatened in writing against the Company or any of its Subsidiaries by a Card Association or its applicable agent.

8.24.         Private Placement. Neither the Company nor any Person acting on its behalf has conducted any general solicitation or general advertising (as those terms are used in Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act) in connection with the offer or sale of any of the Preferred Stock.

 

8.25.         Application of Takeover Protections. The Company and the Board have taken all necessary action, if any, in order to render inapplicable any control share acquisition, business combination, poison pill (including any distribution under a rights agreement) or other similar anti-takeover provision under the Certificate of Incorporation, bylaws or the Laws of the State of Delaware (including, without limitation, Section 203 of the Delaware General Corporation Law) that is or could become applicable to any Purchaser and/or its Affiliates as a result of such Purchaser and the Company fulfilling their respective obligations or exercising their respective rights under this Agreement and the Transaction Agreements, including as a result of the issuance or ownership of the Preferred Stock, the Series A-2 Preferred Stock which such shares of Preferred Stock are convertible into and the Underlying Common Stock which such shares of Preferred Stock and/or Series A-2 Preferred Stock are convertible into, as the case may be, contemplated by this Agreement.

8.26.         Customers and Suppliers. The Customers and Suppliers Schedule attached hereto sets forth (a) a list of the Company’s and its Subsidiaries’ ten largest customers for the twelve-month period ended June 30, 2013, and sets forth opposite the name of each such customer the percentage of consolidated gross revenues attributable to such customer and (b) a list of the Company’s and its Subsidiaries’ material suppliers, which includes (but is not limited to) (i) sponsoring banks, (ii) Card Associations and (iii) key providers of software or other services used by the Company and its Subsidiaries in connection with the operation of their respective businesses.

Since December 30, 2012, neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries has received any oral or written notice from any such supplier to the effect that, and neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries has any Knowledge that, any such suppler will stop, decrease the rate of, or change the terms (whether related to payment, price or otherwise) with respect to, supplying materials, products or services to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries (whether as a result of the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby or otherwise). There are no suppliers of products or services to the Company or its Subsidiaries that are material to the Company’s business with respect to which practical alternative sources of supply are not generally available on comparable terms and conditions in the marketplace.

 

8.27.         Disclosure. The Company confirms that neither it nor any of its officers or directors nor any other Person acting on its or their behalf has provided any Purchaser or its respective agents or counsel with any information that it believes constitutes or could reasonably be expected to constitute material, non-public information except insofar as the existence, provisions and terms of this Agreement and the proposed transactions hereunder may constitute such information, all of which will be disclosed by the Company in the Form 8-K as contemplated by Section 6.7 hereof. The Company understands and confirms that each of the Purchasers will rely on the foregoing representations in effecting transactions in securities of the Company.

9.2.          Authorization. The execution, delivery and performance by such Purchaser of this Agreement and the other Transaction Agreements to which such Purchaser is a party have been duly authorized by such Purchaser and will each constitute the valid and legally binding obligation of such Purchaser, enforceable against such Purchaser in accordance with their respective terms, except as such enforceability may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization and similar Laws affecting creditors’ rights generally or general equitable principles.

9.3.          Private Placement.

 

(a)          The Preferred Stock to be acquired by such Purchaser hereunder will be acquired for such Purchaser’s own account, and not with a view to the resale or distribution of any part thereof in violation of the Securities Act or any applicable state securities Laws, and such Purchaser has no present intention of selling, granting any participation in, or otherwise distributing the same in violation of the Securities Act or any applicable state securities Laws, without prejudice, however, to such Purchaser’s right at all times to sell or otherwise dispose of all or any part of such Preferred Stock (or Series A-2 Preferred Stock into which such Preferred Stock may be converted or Underlying Common Stock into which such Preferred Stock and/or Series A-2 Preferred Stock may be converted) in compliance with applicable securities Laws. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed a representation or warranty by such Purchaser to hold the Preferred Stock (or Series A-2 Preferred Stock into which such Preferred Stock may be converted or Underlying Common Stock into which such Preferred Stock and/or Series A-2 Preferred Stock may be converted) for any period of time. Such Purchaser is an “accredited investor” as defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D under the Securities Act.

 

(b)          Such Purchaser acknowledges that it: (i) is able to conduct its own evaluation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement; (ii) has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters as to be capable of evaluating the merits and risks of its prospective investment contemplated hereunder; and (iii) has the ability to bear the economic risks of its prospective investment and can afford the complete loss of such investment.

Such Purchaser further acknowledges that it has had such opportunity to consult with its own counsel, financial and tax advisors and other professional advisers as it believes is sufficient for purposes of the purchase of the Preferred Stock.

 

9.4.          No Conflict, Breach, Violation or Default.

Neither the execution, delivery or performance by such Purchaser of this Agreement or any Transaction Agreement to which it is a party, nor the consummation by such Purchaser of the obligations and transactions contemplated thereby, in each case at the Initial Closing, requires any consent of, authorization by, exemption from, filing with or notice to any Governmental Entity or any other Person, other than filings required under applicable U.S. federal and state securities Laws to be made by the Company.

9.5.          No Reliance. Except for the representations and warranties contained in Section 8 of this Agreement and in any certificate delivered hereunder, such Purchaser acknowledges that neither the Company, its Subsidiaries nor any Person on behalf of the Company or its Subsidiaries makes, and such Purchaser has not relied upon, any other express or implied representation or warranty with respect to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or with respect to any other information provided to such Purchaser in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. The foregoing, however, does not limit or modify the representations and warranties contained in Section 8 of this Agreement, any certificate delivered hereunder or the right of such Purchaser to rely thereon.

Section 10.         Survival of Representations and Warranties; Indemnification.

 

10.1.          Survival of Representations and Warranties.

10.2.        Indemnification.

 

(a)          General. In consideration of each Purchaser’s execution and delivery of this Agreement and acquiring the Preferred Stock hereunder and in addition to all of the Company’s other obligations under this Agreement, the Company shall defend, protect, indemnify and hold harmless each Purchaser and each other holder of Preferred Stock and all of their officers, directors, managers, stockholders, partners, members, employees and agents (including, without limitation, those retained in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement) (collectively, the “Indemnitees”) from and against Indemnified Liabilities, incurred directly or indirectly by the Indemnitees or any of them as a result of, or arising out of, or relating to (i) any claims by any third party relating to (x) any transaction financed or to be financed in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, with the proceeds of the issuance of the Preferred Stock or (y) the execution, delivery, performance or enforcement of this Agreement and any other instrument, document or agreement executed pursuant hereto by any Indemnitee, (ii) a breach of a representation or warranty by the Company or any Subsidiary hereunder, under any Transaction Agreements or in any certificate or other agreement delivered in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, (iii) a breach of a covenant by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries under this Agreement, the Certificate of Designation or any instrument, certificate or other document executed in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby or (iv) the Direct Air Matter, including, without limitation any amounts set-off, seized or claimed by Merrick out of the Designated Assets, net of any recovery actually received in cash by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries from a third-party or by WLES’ forfeiture to the Company of Escrowed Shares, provided that for purposes of this Section 10.2(a)(iv), the value of each Escrowed Share shall be deemed to be the lesser of (1) the Implied Value and (2) $3.00 (as adjusted for stock splits, reverse stock splits, stock dividends, and similar actions affecting such Escrowed Shares, as applicable); it being acknowledged and agreed that the amount of any Indemnified Liabilities sustained by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries related to the matters referenced in the foregoing clauses (i) through (iv) (or any facts and circumstances underlying such matters) shall constitute indirect losses to the Indemnitees for which the Indemnitees are indemnified.

 

(b)          Limitations on Indemnification. Notwithstanding Section 10.2(a), other than with respect to any breach of any Fundamental Representations or Section 8.13, (i) no claims by the Indemnitees pursuant to Section 10.2(a)(ii) may be payable unless and until the aggregate amount of Indemnified Liabilities that would otherwise be payable hereunder when claimed exceeds on a cumulative basis an amount equal to $100,000 (the “Deductible”), and then only to the extent such Indemnified Liabilities exceed the Deductible and (ii) the aggregate amount of payments to which the Indemnitees shall be entitled in satisfaction of claims for Indemnified Liabilities pursuant to Section 10.2(a)(ii) shall in no event exceed the aggregate purchase price of all Preferred Stock purchased by the Purchasers pursuant to this Agreement.

 

- 36 -
 

 

(c)          Materiality. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, for purposes of this Section 10 of determining whether there has been a breach and the amount of Indemnified Liabilities, each representation and warranty in this Agreement, and any other instrument, certificate document or agreement executed pursuant hereto shall be read without regard and without giving effect to the terms “material” or “Material Adverse Effect” or similar phrases contained in such representation or warranty (as if such words or phrases were deleted from such representation and warranty).

 

(d)           Subject to Section 10.2(b), in the event of an indemnification claim by any Indemnitee pursuant to Section 10.2(a), the then applicable conversion price with respect to the Preferred Stock set forth in the Certificate of Designation (as the same may have been adjusted from time to time) shall be automatically reduced by an amount equal to the product of (i) $3.00 (as adjusted for stock splits, reverse stock splits, stock dividends, and similar actions affecting the Preferred Stock, as applicable), which is the conversion price in effect as of the date of this Agreement multiplied by (ii) the result of (A) the amount of Indemnified Liabilities subject to such indemnification claim divided by (B) the Deemed Common Equity Value (for illustrative purposes, if the Company has agreed to pay $5,000,000 to settle the Direct Air Matter (ignoring for purposes of this illustration any related costs and expenses), then the amount of Indemnified Liabilities is $5,000,000 and the Deemed Common Equity Value is $34,587,282, which would result in a conversion price adjustment equal to $3.00 X ($5,000,000/$34,587,282), which equals a reduction in the conversion price of ~$0.437 per share); provided, however, that if the foregoing conversion price adjustment would cause the adjusted conversion price to be zero or a negative number, then the adjusted conversion price shall be deemed to be $0.001 (as adjusted for stock splits, reverse stock splits, stock dividends, and similar actions affecting the Preferred Stock, as applicable); provided, further, that if the indemnification claim is for Indemnified Liabilities relating to or arising out of a breach of a covenant by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries under this Agreement, the Certificate of Designation or any instrument, certificate or other document executed in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby, then such Purchaser may, at its sole option, elect to be paid in cash, by wire transfer of immediately available funds, for such Indemnified Liabilities.

 

Section 11.         Termination Prior to the Initial Closing. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, as between a Purchaser and the Company, this Agreement may be terminated at any time prior to the Initial Closing:

 

(a)          by the mutual written consent of such Purchaser and the Company;

 

(b)          by such Purchaser or the Company, upon written notice to the other party, if the Initial Closing shall not have been consummated on or prior to May 15, 2014 (the “Termination Date”); provided, however, that the right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 11(b) shall not be available to any party whose breach of any provision of this Agreement results in or causes the failure of the Initial Closing to occur by such time;

 

- 37 -
 

 

(c)          by such Purchaser or the Company, upon written notice to the other party, if a Governmental Entity of competent jurisdiction has issued a decision, injunction, judgment, order, ruling, verdict, writ or any other action permanently enjoining or otherwise prohibiting the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or the other Transaction Documents, and such decision, injunction, judgment, order, ruling, verdict, writ or any other action has become final and non-appealable; provided, however, that the right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 11(c) shall not be available to any party whose breach of any provision of this Agreement results in or causes such decision, injunction, judgment, order, ruling, verdict, writ or other action;

 

(d)          by such Purchaser, upon written notice to the Company, if (i) there has been a breach of any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement made by the Company in this Agreement, such that the conditions to the Initial Closing set forth in Section 3 would not be satisfied and (ii) such breach is not cured (if curable) within thirty days after delivery of such notice; provided that this Section 11(d) shall only apply if such Purchaser is not in material breach of any of its obligations under this Agreement; or

 

(e)          by such Purchaser, upon written notice to the Company, in the event the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, (a) become subject to any judgment, order, ruling or verdict, or settle or agree to settle any claim, dispute or litigation, in each case that results in the Company or any of its Subsidiaries becoming liable, net of insurance proceeds actually received (i) with respect to Merrick and arising out of or related to the Direct Air Matter, for an amount that, individually or in the aggregate, is not solely satisfied out of the Escrowed Shares (and without the payment of cash by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries) and/or the Designated Assets or (ii) in the case of any other third-party (including, without limitation, any sponsoring bank other than Merrick) or Merrick for any matter not arising out of or related to the Direct Air Matter, for an amount, individually or in the aggregate, equal to or exceeding $2,500,000 or (b) become subject to any claim made by any sponsoring bank or other third party which would reasonably be expected to cause the Company or its Subsidiaries to be liable, individually or in the aggregate, for an amount that is not solely satisfied out of the Escrowed Shares (and without the payment of cash by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries) and/or the Designated Assets (in the case of any claims by Merrick arising out of or related to the Direct Air Matter) or $2,500,000 (in the case of any other claim by any third party, including by Merrick for any claim not arising out of or related to the Direct Air Matter), as applicable.

 

In the event this Agreement is terminated pursuant to this Section 11, such termination shall not relieve any party of liability for any breaches of this Agreement that occurred prior to such termination and notwithstanding any such termination, the provisions of Section 12 shall not terminate and shall be deemed to survive any such termination.

 

Section 12.         General Provisions.

 

12.1.          Expenses. The Company shall pay, and hold Purchaser and all holders of Preferred Stock, Series A-2 Preferred Stock and Underlying Common Stock harmless against liability for the payment of stamp and other taxes which may be payable in respect of the execution and delivery of this Agreement or the issuance, delivery or acquisition of any shares of Preferred Stock, Series A-2 Preferred Stock or any shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of Preferred Stock and/or Series A-2 Preferred Stock. In addition, the Company shall pay the reasonable legal fees and expenses (not to exceed $25,000 in the aggregate) of Greenberg Traurig, LLP, counsel to the Purchasers, incurred by such Purchasers in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, which amount shall be paid directly by the Company to Greenberg Traurig, LLP at the applicable Closing or paid by the Company to Greenberg Traurig, LLP upon termination of this Agreement so long as such termination did not occur as a result of a material breach by such Purchasers of any of their obligations hereunder (as the case may be).

 

- 38 -
 

 

12.2.          Amendments and Waivers. Except as otherwise provided herein, no term of this Agreement may be amended or modified without the prior written consent of the Company and the holders of a majority of the Underlying Common Stock purchased hereunder (treating for this purpose only the holders of Preferred Stock and Series A-2 Preferred Stock as holders of Underlying Common Stock that such shares of Preferred Stock and/or Series A-2 Preferred Stock are convertible or are converted into). No provision of this Agreement may be waived except in a writing executed and delivered by the party against whom such waiver is sought to be enforced. The failure or delay of any Person to enforce any of the provisions of this Agreement shall in no way be construed as a waiver of such provisions and shall not affect the right of such Person thereafter to enforce each and every provision of this Agreement in accordance with its terms.  A waiver of consent to or of any breach or default by any Person in the performance by that Person of his, her or its obligations under this Agreement shall not be deemed to be a consent or waiver to or of any other breach or default in the performance by that Person of the same or any other obligations of that Person under this Agreement. For purposes of this Agreement and the Transaction Agreements, shares of Preferred Stock, Series A-2 Preferred Stock or Underlying Common Stock held by the Company or any Subsidiaries shall not be deemed to be outstanding.

 

12.3.          Severability. Whenever possible, each provision of this Agreement shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable Law, but if any provision of this Agreement is held to be prohibited, invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect under applicable Law in any jurisdiction, such provision shall be affected only to the extent of such prohibition, illegality, unenforceability or invalidity, without invalidating the remainder of this Agreement.

 

12.4.          Remedies. Each holder of Preferred Stock, Series A-2 Preferred Stock and Underlying Common Stock shall have all rights and remedies set forth in this Agreement, the Certificate of Incorporation, the Certificate of Designation and the Series A-2 Certificate of Designation and all rights and remedies which such holders have been granted at any time under any other agreement or contract and all of the rights which such holders have under any Law. Any Person having any rights under any provision of this Agreement shall be entitled to enforce such rights specifically (without posting a bond or other security), to recover damages caused by reason of any breach of any provision of this Agreement and to exercise all other rights existing in their favor. The parties hereto agree and acknowledge that a breach of this Agreement would cause irreparable harm and money damages would not be an adequate remedy for any such breach and that, in addition to any other rights and remedies existing hereunder, any party shall be entitled to specific performance and/or other injunctive relief from any court of law or equity of competent jurisdiction (without posting any bond or other security) in order to enforce or prevent any violation of the provisions of this Agreement.

12.5.          Successors and Assigns.

12.13.         No Strict Construction. The parties hereto have participated jointly in the negotiation and drafting of this Agreement. In the event an ambiguity or question of intent or interpretation arises, this Agreement shall be construed as if drafted jointly by the parties hereto, and no presumption or burden of proof shall arise favoring or disfavoring any party by virtue of the authorship of any of the provisions of this Agreement. Any reference to any federal, state, local, or non-U.S. statute or law shall be deemed also to refer to all rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, unless the context requires otherwise. The word ‘‘including’’ shall mean including without limitation.

 

12.14.         Electronic Delivery. This Agreement, the agreements referred to herein, and each other agreement or instrument entered into in connection herewith or therewith or contemplated hereby or thereby, and any amendments hereto or thereto, to the extent executed and delivered by means of a photographic, photostatic, facsimile, or similar reproduction of such signed writing using a facsimile machine or electronic mail shall be treated in all manner and respects as an original agreement or instrument and shall be considered to have the same binding legal effect as if it were the original signed version thereof delivered in person. At the request of any party hereto or to any such agreement or instrument, each other party hereto or thereto shall re execute original forms thereof and deliver them to all other parties. No party hereto or to any such agreement or instrument shall raise the use of a facsimile machine or electronic mail to deliver a signature or the fact that any signature or agreement or instrument was transmitted or communicated through the use of a facsimile machine or electronic mail as a defense to the formation or enforceability of a contract and each such party forever waives any such defense.

 

12.15.         Entire Agreement. Except as otherwise provided herein, this Agreement and the other agreements and instruments referred to herein contain the complete agreement and understanding among the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof and thereof and supersede and preempt any prior understandings, agreements and representations by or among the parties hereto (whether written or oral) which may have related to the subject matter hereof or thereof in any way.

 

12.16.         Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed simultaneously in multiple counterparts, any one of which need not contain the signatures of more than one party, but all such counterparts taken together shall constitute one and the same Agreement.

12.17.         Capital and Surplus; Special Reserves. The Company agrees that the capital of the Company (as such term is used in Section 154 of the General Corporation Law of Delaware) in respect of the Preferred Stock issued pursuant to this Agreement shall be equal to the aggregate par value of such shares and that it shall not increase the capital of the Company with respect to any shares of the Company’s Capital Stock at any time on or after the date of this Agreement. The Company also agrees that it shall not create any special reserves under Section 171 of the General Corporation Law of Delaware without the prior written consent of the holders of at least 50% of the outstanding Preferred Stock and the Series A Preferred Stock, voting together as a single class.

 

12.18.         Treatment of the Preferred Stock and Series A-2 Preferred Stock. The Company covenants and agrees that (a) so long as federal income Tax Laws prohibit a deduction for distributions made by the Company with respect to equity interests, it shall treat all distributions paid by it on the Preferred Stock or Series A-2 Preferred Stock as Non-deductible dividends on all of its Tax Returns and (b) it shall treat the Preferred Stock and Series A-2 Preferred Stock as equity interests in all of its financial statements and other reports and shall treat all distributions paid by it on the Preferred Stock or Series A-2 Preferred Stock as dividends on equity interests in such statements and reports. The Company and the Purchasers mutually agree that the Preferred Stock and the Series A-2 Preferred Stock is stock which participates in corporate growth to a significant extent within the meaning of Treasury Regulations Section 1.305-5(a), and hence will not be treated as preferred stock for purposes of Code Section 305 and the regulations thereunder.

 

12.19.         Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. When any accounting determination or calculation is required to be made under this Agreement or the exhibits hereto, such determination or calculation (unless otherwise provided) shall be made in accordance with GAAP, consistently applied, except that if because of a change in GAAP the Company would have to alter a previously utilized accounting method or policy in order to remain in compliance with GAAP, such determination or calculation shall continue to be made in accordance with the Company’s previous accounting methods and policies, unless otherwise directed by the holders of at least 50% of the outstanding Preferred Stock and the Series A Preferred Stock, voting together as a single class.

 

12.20.         Third Party Beneficiaries. Nothing in this Agreement (implied or otherwise) is intended to confer upon any Person other than the parties or their respective successors and permitted assigns any rights, remedies, obligations, or liabilities under or by reason of this Agreement.
