AMENDED AND RESTATED WARRANT TO PURCHASE SHARES OF COMMON STOCK
(Expires February 22, 2010)

Warrant No. WC-1A

 

2,000,000 Shares of Common Stock

 

FOR VALUE RECEIVED, subject to the provisions set forth below, the undersigned, Fischer Imaging Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), hereby certifies that ComVest Investment Partners II LLC, a Delaware limited liability company or its registered assigns (the “Holder”), is entitled to purchase from the Company up to two million (2,000,000) fully paid and non-assessable shares (the “Warrant Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, $0.01 par value per share (the “Common Shares”), for cash at a price of four dollars and twenty five cents ($4.25) per share (the “Exercise Price”) at any time from and after the Exercise Date (as defined below) and until 5:00 p.m. (Mountain time) on February 22, 2010 (the “Expiration Date”) upon surrender to the Company at its principal office (or at such other location as the Company may advise the Holder in writing) of this Warrant properly endorsed with the Notice of Exercise attached hereto duly filled in and signed and, if applicable, upon payment in cash or by check of the aggregate Exercise Price for the number of shares for which this Warrant is being exercised determined in accordance with the provisions hereof. The Exercise Price and the number of shares purchasable hereunder are subject to adjustment as provided in Section 3 of this Warrant. For purposes of this Warrant, “Exercise Date” means the first to occur of (i) an Option Triggering Event (as defined below), (ii) the entering into of an Option Triggering Event Agreement (as defined below), (iii) the delivery by the Holder to the Company of a written agreement pursuant to which the Holder agrees not to resell any Warrant Shares to the public prior to August 23, 2005 or (iv) August 23, 2005. This Warrant amends and restates in its entirety the Warrant No. WC-1 issued to the Holder dated February 22, 2005, the surrender of which is hereby acknowledged by the Company and the Holder.

1.     Exercise of Warrant.

1.1   Exercise. This Warrant shall be exercisable from the Exercise Date until the Expiration Date, and this Warrant shall expire on the Expiration Date. Upon exercise of this Warrant, the Exercise Price shall be payable in cash or check. This Warrant may be exercised in whole or in part so long as any exercise in part hereof would not involve the issuance of fractional Warrant Shares. If exercised in part, the Company shall deliver to the Holder a new

 



 

Warrant, identical in form to this Warrant, in the name of the Holder, evidencing the right to purchase the number of Warrant Shares as to which this Warrant has not been exercised, which new Warrant shall be signed by an appropriate officer of the Company. The term “Warrant” as used herein shall include any subsequent Warrant issued as provided herein.

1.2   Exercise Procedures; Delivery of Certificate. Upon surrender of this Warrant with a duly executed Notice of Exercise in the form of Annex A attached hereto, together with payment of the Exercise Price for the Warrant Shares purchased, at the Company’s principal executive offices (the “Designated Office”), the Holder shall be entitled to receive a certificate or certificates for the Warrant Shares so purchased. The Company agrees that the Warrant Shares shall be deemed to have been issued to the Holder as of the close of business on the date on which this Warrant shall have been surrendered together with the Notice of Exercise and payment for such Warrant Shares.

1.3   Cashless Exercise. In lieu of payment of the Exercise Price, a Holder may exercise this Warrant, in whole or in part, by presentation and surrender of this Warrant to the Company, together with a Cashless Exercise Form attached hereto as Annex B (or a reasonable facsimile thereof) duly executed (a “Cashless Exercise”). Acceptance by the Company of such presentation and surrender shall be deemed a waiver of the Holder’s obligation to pay all or any portion of the Exercise Price, as the case may be. In the event of a Cashless Exercise, the Holder shall exchange this Warrant for that number of Common Shares determined by multiplying the number of Common Shares for which this Warrant is being exercised by a fraction, the numerator of which shall be the difference between (i) the higher of (A) $7.10 or (B) the then current market price per Common Share and (ii) the Exercise Price, and the denominator of which shall be the higher of (i) $[7.10] or (ii) the then current market price per Common Share. For purposes of any computation under this Section l.3, the then current market price per Common Share at any date shall be deemed to be the average for the ten (10) consecutive business days immediately prior to the Cashless Exercise of the daily closing prices of the Common Shares on the principal national securities exchange on which the Common Shares are admitted to trading or listed, or if not listed or admitted to trading on any such exchange, the last reported sales prices as included for quotation on Nasdaq, or if not included for quotation on Nasdaq, the average of the highest reported bid and lowest reported asked prices as reported by the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. Automated Quotations System, or if not then publicly traded, the fair market price of the Common Shares as determined, in good faith, by the Board of Directors of the Company.

1.4   Holder’s Put Option.  (a) Subject to, and in accordance with, the provisions of this Section 1.4, the Holder shall have the right and option (the “Put Option”) to require the Company to redeem and purchase from the Holder all or any portion of this Warrant. The Put Option shall be exercisable from time to time for all or part of the Warrant Shares, as provided in Sections 1.4(b) or 1.4(c). The purchase price (the “Option Purchase Price”) shall be $0.90 multiplied by the number of Warrant Shares as to which this Put Option is then being exercised.

(b)           The Put Option shall be exercisable at any time and from time to time after the occurrence of an Option Triggering Event. If the Holder desires to exercise a Put Option after an Option Triggering Event, the Holder shall surrender this Warrant, together with a Put Option Exercise Form attached hereto as Annex C (or a reasonable facsimile thereof) duly executed, to the Company at the Designated Office. Within five (5) business days after its receipt

of the surrendered Warrant and the Put Option Exercise Form, the Company shall purchase from the Holder that portion of this Warrant as shall be specified in the Put Option Exercise Form at the Option Purchase Price and pay the applicable Option Purchase Price to the Holder, either by wire transfer of immediately available funds to the account specified by the Holder in the Put Option Exercise Form or by certified or bank check of immediately available funds delivered to the Holder at the address specified in the Put Option Exercise Form. If the Put Option is exercised in part, the Company shall deliver to the Holder a new Warrant, identical in form to this Warrant, in the name of the Holder, evidencing the right to purchase the number of Warrant Shares as to which the Put Option has not been exercised, which new Warrant shall be signed by an appropriate officer of the Company.

(c)           Subject to the last sentence of this paragraph (c), the Put Option shall be exercisable at any time and from time to time after the Company has entered into an Option Triggering Event Agreement. If the Holder desires to exercise a Put Option after the Company has entered into an Option Triggering Event Agreement, the Holder shall surrender this Warrant, together with a Put Option Exercise Form (or a reasonable facsimile thereof) duly executed, to the Company at the Designated Office. Immediately prior to the consummation of the transactions contemplated by Option Triggering Event Agreement, the Company shall purchase from the Holder that portion of this Warrant as shall be specified in the Put Option Exercise Form at the Option Purchase Price and pay the applicable Option Purchase Price to the Holder, either by wire transfer of immediately available funds to the account specified by the Holder in the Put Option Exercise Form or by certified or bank check of immediately available funds delivered to the Holder at the address specified in the Put Option Exercise Form. If the Put Option is exercised in part, the Company shall deliver to the Holder a new Warrant, identical in form to this Warrant, in the name of the Holder, evidencing the right to purchase the number of Warrant Shares as to which the Put Option has not been exercised, which new Warrant shall be signed by an appropriate officer of the Company. If the Option Triggering Event Agreement shall be terminated or abandoned without the transactions contemplated thereby being consummated, the Company shall not be required to purchase any part of this Warrant and instead shall return this Warrant to the Holder with a notice in writing to the effect that the Option Triggering Event Agreement has been terminated or abandoned and confirming to the Holder that this Warrant remains in full force and effect.

(d)           For purposes of this Warrant, “Option Triggering Event” shall mean any of the following:

(i)            any Change of Control of the Company (as defined below), including any transaction or series of transactions that result in a Change of Control of the Company; or

(ii)           any liquidation or dissolution of the Company, or any action (A) by the Company relating to bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or relief from creditors seeking to adjudicate it bankrupt or seeking reorganization, adjustment, winding-up, liquidation, dissolution, composition or other relief with respect to the Company or (B) seeking appointment of a receiver, trustee, custodian or other similar official for it or all or any substantial part of its assets, or making a general assignment for the benefit of its creditors.

3



 

(e)           For purposes of this Warrant, “Option Triggering Event Agreement” shall mean any agreement by the Company to engage in any transaction or series of transactions that would result in a Change of Control of the Company (but, in the case of the transactions contemplated by Section 1.4(f)(i)(C)(III) (below), only if the agreement to engage in the transaction or series of transactions contemplated thereby is entered into on or prior to December 31, 2005).

(f)            For purposes of this Warrant, “Change of Control of the Company” shall mean any of the following at any time after the date hereof:

(i)            the “Sale of the Company”, which shall mean any transaction or series of transactions pursuant to which any person(s) (meaning an individual, a partnership, a limited liability company, a corporation, an association, a joint stock company, a trust, a joint venture, an unincorporated organization, Section 13D group, or a governmental entity (or any department, agency or political subdivision thereof)) other than the Holder acquire(s), directly or indirectly, (A) beneficial ownership of interests in the Company (or the surviving or resulting entity in such transaction or transactions) possessing more than fifty percent (50%) of the outstanding voting power of the Company (on a fully diluted basis), whether by merger, consolidation, reorganization, combination, issuance, sale or transfer of the Company’s capital stock, or otherwise, (B) the power, whether through ownership or securities, as trustee or executor, by proxy or other voting arrangement, contract or otherwise, to elect a majority of the board of directors of the Company, or (C) of all or a material portion of (including, without limitation, by the Company granting a license or similar transaction regarding related intellectual property which has the same or similar economic effect to a sale of such assets) (I) the Company’s Digital Mammography or SenoScan business, including the sale of inventories or services contracts associated therewith outside the ordinary course of business, (II) the Company’s Sterotactic Biopsy Table or MammoTest business, including the sale of inventories or services contracts associated therewith outside the ordinary course of business or (III) the Company’s general radiological, electrocardiography or surgical businesses (but, in the case of this clause (III), only if the agreement to engage in such transaction or series of transactions is entered into on or prior to December 31, 2005); or
 (ii)          a majority of the board of directors of the Company shall consist at such time of individuals other than (A) members of the board of directors of the Company on the date hereof and (B) other members of the board of directors of the Company recommended, elected or approved to succeed or become a director of the Company, as the case may be, by a majority of such members referred to in clause (C) or by members so recommended, elected or approved.

2.     Transfer; Issuance of Stock Certificates; Restrictive Legends.

2.1   Transfer. Each transfer of this Warrant and all rights hereunder, in whole or in part, shall be registered on the books of the Company to be maintained for such purpose, upon surrender of this Warrant at the Designated Office, together with a written assignment of this

 

4



Warrant in the form of Annex D attached hereto duly executed by the Holder or its agent or attorney. Upon such surrender and delivery, the Company shall execute and deliver a new Warrant or Warrants in the name of the assignee or assignees and in the denominations specified in such instrument of assignment, and shall issue to the assignor a new Warrant evidencing the portion of this Warrant not so assigned, if any. A Warrant may be exercised by the new Holder for the purchase of Warrant Shares without having a new Warrant issued. Prior to due presentment for registration of transfer thereof, the Company may deem and treat the registered Holder of this Warrant as the absolute owner hereof (notwithstanding any notations of ownership or writing thereon made by anyone other than a duly authorized officer of the Company) for all purposes and shall not be affected by any notice to the contrary. All Warrants issued upon any assignment of Warrants shall be the valid obligations of the Company, evidencing the same rights, and entitled to the same benefits as the Warrants surrendered upon such registration of transfer or exchange.

2.2   Stock Certificates. Certificates for the Warrant Shares shall be delivered to the Holder within three (3) business days after the rights represented by this Warrant shall have been exercised pursuant to Section 1, and a new Warrant representing the shares of Common Shares, if any, with respect to which this Warrant shall not then have been exercised shall also be issued to the Holder within such time. The issuance of certificates for Warrant Shares upon the exercise of this Warrant shall be made without charge to the Holder hereof including, without limitation, any documentary, stamp or similar tax that may be payable in respect thereof; provided, however, that the Company shall not be required to pay any income tax to which the Holder hereof may be subject in connection with the issuance of this Warrant or the Warrant Shares.

2.3   Restrictive Legend. Except as otherwise provided in this Section 2, each certificate for Warrant Shares initially issued upon the exercise of this Warrant and each certificate for Warrant Shares issued to any subsequent transferee of any such certificate, shall be stamped or otherwise imprinted with a legend in substantially the following form:

“THESE SECURITIES HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED. THEY MAY NOT BE SOLD, OFFERED FOR SALE, PLEDGED OR HYPOTHECATED IN THE ABSENCE OF A REGISTRATION STATEMENT IN EFFECT WITH RESPECT TO THE SECURITIES UNDER SUCH ACT OR AN OPINION IN FORM AND FROM COUNSEL REASONABLY SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY THAT SUCH REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED.”

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the legend requirements of this Section 2.3 shall terminate as to any particular Warrant Shares when (i) the Warrant Shares are transferred pursuant to an effective resale registration statement, as contemplated in the Registration Rights Agreement between the Company and the Holder of even date herewith, or (ii) the Company shall have received from the Holder thereof an opinion of counsel in form and substance reasonably acceptable to the Company that such legend is not required in order to ensure compliance with the Securities Act. Whenever the restrictions imposed by this Section 2.3 shall terminate, the Holder or subsequent transferee, as the case may be, shall be entitled to receive from the

 

5



Company without cost to such Holder or transferee a certificate for the Warrant Shares without such restrictive legend.

3.     Adjustment of Number of Shares; Exercise Price; Nature of Securities lssuable Upon Exercise of Warrants.

3.1   Exercise Price; Adjustment of Number of Shares. The Exercise Price and the number of shares purchasable hereunder shall be subject to adjustment from time to time as hereinafter provided; provided, however, that, notwithstanding the below, in no case shall the Exercise Price be reduced to below the par value of the class of stock for which this Warrant is exercisable at such time.

3.2   Adjustments Upon Distribution, Subdivision or Combination. If the Company, at any time or from time to time after the issuance of this Warrant, shall (i) make a dividend or distribution on its shares of Common Stock payable in shares of Common Stock, (ii) subdivide or reclassify the outstanding shares of Common Stock into a greater number of shares, or (iii) combine or reclassify the outstanding shares of Common Stock into a smaller number of shares, the Exercise Price in effect at that time and the number of Warrant Shares into which the Warrant is exercisable at that time shall be proportionately adjusted effective as of the record date for the dividend or distribution or the effective date of the subdivision, combination or reclassification.

3.3   Adjustment Upon Other Distributions. If the Company, at any time or from time to time after the issuance of this Warrant, makes a distribution to the holders of the Common Stock payable in securities of the Company other than shares of Common Stock, then, in each such event, provision shall be made so that the Holder shall receive upon exercise of the Warrant, in addition to the number of Warrant Shares, the amount of such securities of the Company which would have been received if the portion of the Warrant so exercised had been exercised for Warrant Shares on the date of such event, subject to adjustments subsequent to the date of such event with respect to such distributed securities which shall be on terms as nearly equivalent as practicable to the adjustments provided in this Section 3 and all other adjustments under this Section 3.

3.4   Adjustment Upon Merger, Consolidation or Exchange. If at any time or from time to time after the issuance of this Warrant there is any merger, consolidation, arrangement or statutory share exchange of the Company with or into any other person or company, then, in each such event, provision shall be made so that the Holder shall receive upon exercise of the Warrant the kind and amount of shares and other securities and property (including cash) which would have been received upon such merger, consolidation, arrangement or statutory share exchange by the Holder if the portion of the Warrant so exercised had been exercised for Warrant Shares immediately prior to such merger, consolidation, arrangement or statutory share exchange, subject to adjustments for events subsequent to the effective date of such merger, consolidation, arrangement or statutory share exchange with respect to such shares and other securities which shall be on terms as nearly equivalent as practicable to the adjustments provided in this Section 3 and all other adjustments under this Section 3.

 

6



3.5   Adjustments for Recapitalization or Reclassification. If, at any time or from time to time after the issuance of this Warrant, the Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrant are changed into the same or a different number of securities of any class of the Company, whether by recapitalization, reclassification or otherwise (other than a merger, consolidation, arrangement or statutory share exchange provided for elsewhere in this Section 3), then, in each such event, provision shall be made so that the Holder shall receive upon exercise of the Warrant the kind and amount of securities or other property which would have been received in connection with such recapitalization, reclassification or other change by the Holder if the portion of the Warrant so exercised had been exercised immediately prior to such recapitalization, reclassification or change, subject to adjustments for events subsequent to the effective date of such recapitalization, reclassification or other change with respect to such securities which shall be on terms as nearly equivalent as practicable to the adjustments provided in this Section 3 and all other adjustments under this Section 3.

3.6   Extraordinary Dividends or Distributions. If, at any time or from time to time after the issuance of this Warrant, the Company shall declare a dividend or any other distribution upon the Common Stock payable otherwise than out of current earnings, retained earnings or earned surplus and otherwise than in shares of Common Stock, then the Exercise Price in effect immediately prior to such declaration shall be reduced by an amount equal, in the case of a dividend or distribution in cash, to the amount thereof payable per share of Common Stock or, in the case of any other dividend or distribution, to the value thereof per share of Common Stock at the time such dividend or distribution was declared, as determined by the Board of Directors of the Company in good faith. Such reductions shall take effect as of the date on which a record is taken for the purposes of the subject dividend or distribution, or, if a record is not taken, the date as of which the holders of record of Common Stock entitled to such dividend or distribution are to be determined.

3.7   Adjustment Upon Issuance of Shares of Common Stock Below Exercise Price.

(a)   If the Company, at any time or from time to time, issues or sells any Additional Shares of Common Stock (as defined below), other than as provided in the foregoing subsections of this Section 3, for a price per share (which, in the case of options, warrants, convertible securities or other rights, includes the amounts paid therefor plus the exercise price, conversion price or other such amounts payable thereunder) that is less than the then applicable Exercise Price, then and in each such case, the then applicable Exercise Price shall automatically be reduced as of the opening of business on the date of such issue or sale, to a price determined by multiplying the Exercise Price by a fraction (i) the numerator of which shall be (A) the number of shares of Common Stock deemed outstanding (as determined below) immediately prior to such issue or sale, plus (B) the number of shares of Common Stock which the aggregate consideration received by the Company for the total number of Additional Shares of Common Stock so issued would purchase at such Exercise Price, and (ii) the denominator of which shall be the number of shares of Common Stock deemed outstanding (as defined below) immediately prior to such issue or sale plus the total number of Additional Shares of Common Stock so issued; provided, however, that upon the expiration or other termination of options, warrants, or other rights to purchase or acquire shares of Common Stock, and upon the expiration or termination of the right to convert or exchange convertible or exchangeable securities (whether

 

7



by reason of redemption or otherwise), if any thereof shall not have been exercised, converted or exchanged, as applicable, the number of shares of Common Stock deemed to be outstanding pursuant to this Section 3.7(a) shall be reduced by the number of shares as to which options, warrants, and rights to purchase or acquire shares of Common Stock shall have expired or terminated unexercised, and as to which conversion or exchange rights shall have expired or terminated unexercised, and such number of shares shall no longer be deemed to be outstanding; and the Exercise Price then in effect shall forthwith be readjusted and thereafter be the price that it would have been had adjustment been made on the basis of the issuance only of the shares of Common Stock actually issued. For purposes of the preceding sentence, the number of shares of Common Stock deemed to be outstanding as of a given date shall be the sum of (A) the number of shares of Common Stock actually outstanding, (B) the number of Shares for which the Warrant could be exercised on the day immediately preceding the given date, and (C) the number of shares of Common Stock which could be obtained through the exercise or conversion of all other rights, options and convertible securities outstanding on the day immediately preceding the given date. “Additional Shares of Common Stock” shall mean all shares of Common Stock, and all options, warrants, convertible securities or other rights to purchase or acquire shares of Common Stock, issued by the Company other than (A) shares of Common Stock and/or options, warrants or other Common Stock purchase rights for up to an aggregate of 300,000 shares of Common Stock (such number to be subject to adjustment in accordance with Section 3.2 above), where such options, warrants or other rights are issued both (i) with exercise prices per share of Common Stock at the then-current fair market value of a share of Common Stock, as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors of the Company or the Compensation Committee thereof, and (ii) to employees, officers or directors of, or consultants to, the Company or any subsidiary pursuant to stock purchase or stock option plans or other arrangements that are approved by the Company’s Board of Directors or the Compensation Committee and (B) shares of Common Stock issued pursuant to the exercise of options, warrants or convertible securities outstanding as of the date hereof.

(b)   In the event that the exercise price, conversion price, purchase price or other price at which shares of Common Stock are purchasable pursuant to any options, warrants, convertible securities or other rights to purchase or acquire Common Stock is reduced at any time or from time to time (other than under or by reason of provisions designed to protect against dilution), then, upon such reduction becoming effective, the Exercise Price then in effect hereunder shall forthwith be decreased to such Exercise Price as would have been obtained had the adjustments made and required under this Section 3.7 upon the issuance of such options, warrants, convertible securities or other rights been made upon the basis of (and the total consideration received therefor) (A) the issuance of the number of shares of Common Stock theretofore actually delivered upon the exercise, conversion or exchange of such options, warrants, convertible securities or other rights, (B) the issuance of all of the Common Stock and all other options, warrants, convertible securities and other rights to purchase or acquire Common Stock issued after the issuance of the modified options, warrants, convertible securities or other rights, and (C) the original issuance at the time of the reduction of any such options, warrants, convertible securities or other rights then still outstanding.

(c)   In no event shall an adjustment under this Section 3.7 be made if it would result in an increase in the then applicable Exercise Price.

8



3.8   Adjustment of Option Purchase Price. At any time there is an adjustment to the number of Warrant Shares underlying this Warrant, the Company shall adjust the Option Purchase Price proportionately so that the consideration to be received by the Holder in connection with the exercise of the Put Option would not be less than would be received by the Holder had such adjustment to the number of Warrant Shares not occurred.

3.9   Notice of Adjustment. Whenever the Exercise Price or Option Purchase Price is adjusted, the Company shall promptly deliver to the Holder a certificate of adjustment, setting forth the Exercise Price and/or Option Purchase Price after adjustment, a brief statement of the facts requiring the adjustment and the computation by which the adjustment was made. The certificate of adjustment shall be conclusive evidence of the correctness of the adjustment.

3.10 Successive Adjustments. The provisions of this Section 3 shall be applicable successively to each event described herein which may occur subsequent to the issuance of this Warrant and prior to the exercise in full of this Warrant.

4.     Registration; Exchange and Replacement of Warrant; Reservation of Shares. The Company shall keep at the Designated Office a register in which the Company shall provide for the registration, transfer and exchange of this Warrant. The Company shall not at any time, except upon the dissolution, liquidation or winding-up of the Company, close such register so as to result in preventing or delaying the exercise or transfer of this Warrant.

The Company may deem and treat the person in whose name this Warrant is registered as the Holder and owner hereof for all purposes and shall not be affected by any notice to the contrary, until presentation of this Warrant for registration or transfer as provided in this Section 4.

Upon receipt by the Company of evidence reasonably satisfactory to it of the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of this Warrant and (in case of loss, theft or destruction) of indemnity satisfactory to it, and (in the case of mutilation) upon surrender and cancellation of this Warrant, the Company will (in the absence of notice to the Company that the Warrant has been acquired by a bona fide purchaser) make and deliver a new Warrant of like tenor, in lieu of this Warrant without requiring the posting of any bond or the giving of any security.

The Company shall at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized shares of capital stock, solely for the purpose of issuance upon the exercise of this Warrant, such number of shares of Common Shares as shall be issuable upon the exercise hereof. The Company covenants and agrees that, upon exercise of this Warrant and payment of the Exercise Price therefor, if applicable, all Warrant Shares issuable upon such exercise shall be duly and validly authorized and issued, fully paid and non-assessable.

9



5.     Investment Representations. The Holder, by accepting this Warrant, covenants and agrees that, at the time of exercise of this Warrant, the securities acquired by the Holder upon exercise hereof are for the account of the Holder or are being acquired for its own investment and account and are not acquired with a view to, or for sale in connection with, any distribution thereof (or any portion thereof) and with no present intention (at any such time) of offering and distributing such securities (or any portion thereof), except in compliance with applicable federal and state securities laws.

6.     Fractional Warrants and Fractional Shares. If the number of Warrant Shares purchasable upon the exercise of this Warrant is adjusted pursuant to Section 3 hereof, the Company shall nevertheless not be required to issue fractions of shares, upon exercise of this Warrant or otherwise, or to distribute certificates that evidence fractional shares. With respect to any fraction of a share called for upon any exercise hereof, the Company shall pay to the Holder an amount in cash equal to such fraction multiplied by the current market value of such fractional share as may be prescribed, in good faith, by the Board of Directors of the Company.

7.     Warrant Holders Not Deemed Stockholders. No Holder of this Warrant shall, as such, be entitled to vote or to receive dividends or be deemed the holder of Warrant Shares that may at any time be issuable upon exercise of this Warrant, nor shall anything contained herein be construed to confer upon the Holder of this Warrant, as such, any of the rights of a stockholder of the Company or any right to vote for the election of directors or upon any matter submitted to stockholders at any meeting thereof, or to give or withhold consent to any corporate action (whether upon any recapitalization, issue or reclassification of stock, change of par value or change of stock to no par value, consolidation, merger or conveyance or otherwise), or to receive notice of meetings, or subscription rights, until such Holder shall have exercised this Warrant and been issued Warrant Shares or deemed to have been issued Warrant Shares in accordance with the provisions hereof.

8.     Sales of Company Securities. The Holder agrees that for a period of three (3) years from the date of this Warrant, it will not, and will cause its Affiliates not to, sell short, sell short against the box, engage in any other similar derivative transactions or otherwise effect any sales of securities of the Company except for sales which are covered through the delivery of the Warrant Shares.

9.     Notices. Any notice which is required to be given by this Warrant must be in writing, and shall be given or served, unless otherwise expressly provided herein, by depositing the same in the United States Mail, postpaid and certified and addressed to the party to be notified, with return receipt requested, or by delivering the same by courier or in person to such party (or, if the party or parties to be notified be incorporated, to an officer of such party). Notice deposited in the mail, postpaid and certified with return receipt requested, shall be deemed received and effective upon the deposit in a proper United States depository. Notice given in any other manner shall be effective only if and when received by the party to be notified.
