MICROVISION, INC.

 

Issue Date: August 9, 2005   Warrant No. 2

 

THIS CERTIFIES that SATELLITE STRATEGIC FINANCE PARTNERS LTD. or any subsequent holder hereof (the “Holder”), has the right to purchase from MICROVISION, INC., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), upon the terms and subject to the limitations on exercise and conditions hereinafter set forth, up to 140,139 fully paid and nonassessable shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), subject to adjustment as provided herein, at a price per share equal to the Exercise Price (as defined below), at any time and from time to time beginning on the date on which this Warrant is originally issued (the “Issue Date”) and ending at 6:00 p.m., eastern time, on the date that is the fifth (5th) anniversary of the Issue Date (or, if such date is not a Business Day, on the Business Day immediately following such date) (the “Expiration Date”). This Warrant is issued pursuant to a Securities Purchase Agreement, dated as of August 8, 2005 (the “Securities Purchase Agreement”). Capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined shall have the respective meanings set forth in the Securities Purchase Agreement.


1. Exercise.

 

(a) Right to Exercise; Exercise Price. The Holder shall have the right to exercise this Warrant at any time and from time to time during the period beginning on the Issue Date and ending on the Expiration Date as to all or any part of the shares of Common Stock covered hereby (the “Warrant Shares”). The “Exercise Price” for each Warrant Share purchased by the Holder upon the exercise of this Warrant shall be equal to $6.50, subject to adjustment for the events specified in Section 6 below.

 

(b) Exercise Notice. In order to exercise this Warrant, the Holder shall send to the Company by facsimile transmission, at any time prior to 6:00 p.m., eastern time, on the Business Day on which the Holder wishes to effect such exercise (the “Exercise Date”), (i) a notice of exercise in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit A (the “Exercise Notice”), and (ii) a copy of the original Warrant, and, in the case of a Cash Exercise (as defined below), the Holder shall pay the Exercise Price to the Company by wire transfer. The Exercise Notice shall state the name or names in which the shares of Common Stock that are issuable on such exercise shall be issued. In the case of a dispute between the Company and the Holder as to the calculation of the Exercise Price or the number of Warrant Shares issuable hereunder (including, without limitation, the calculation of any adjustment pursuant to Section 6 below), the Company shall issue to the Holder the number of Warrant Shares that are not disputed within the time periods specified in Section 2 below and shall submit the disputed calculations to a certified public accounting firm of national recognition (other than the Company’s regularly retained accountants) within three (3) Business Days following the Company’s receipt of the Holder’s Exercise Notice. The Company shall cause such accountant to calculate the Exercise Price and/or the number of Warrant Shares issuable hereunder and to notify the Company and the Holder of the results in writing no later than three (3) Business Days following the day on which such accountant received the disputed calculations (the “Dispute Procedure”). Such accountant’s calculation shall be deemed conclusive absent manifest error. The fees of any such accountant shall be borne by the party whose calculations were most at variance with those of such accountant.

 

(c) Holder of Record. The Holder shall, for all purposes, be deemed to have become the holder of record of the Warrant Shares specified in an Exercise Notice on the Exercise Date specified therein, irrespective of the date of delivery of such Warrant Shares. Except as specifically provided herein, nothing in this Warrant shall be construed as conferring upon the Holder hereof any rights as a stockholder of the Company prior to the Exercise Date.

 

(d) Cancellation of Warrant. This Warrant shall be canceled upon its exercise in full and, if this Warrant is exercised in part, the Company shall, at the time that it delivers Warrant Shares to the Holder pursuant to such exercise as provided herein, issue a new warrant, and deliver to the Holder a certificate representing such new warrant, with terms identical in all respects to this Warrant (except that such new warrant shall be exercisable into the number of shares of Common Stock with respect to which this Warrant shall remain unexercised); provided, however, that the Holder shall be entitled to exercise all or any portion of such new warrant at any time following the time at which this Warrant is exercised, regardless of whether the Company has actually issued such new warrant or delivered to the Holder a certificate therefor.

2. Delivery of Warrant Shares Upon Exercise. Upon receipt of an Exercise Notice pursuant to Section 1 above, the Company shall, (A) in the case of a Cash Exercise, no later than the close of business on the later to occur of (i) the third (3rd) Business Day following the Exercise Date set forth in such Exercise Notice and (ii) such later date on which the Company shall have received payment of the Exercise Price, (B) in the case of a Cashless Exercise (as defined below), no later than the close of business on the third (3rd) Business Day following the Exercise Date set forth in such Exercise Notice, and (C) with respect to Warrant Shares that are the subject of a Dispute Procedure, the close of business on the third (3rd) Business Day following the determination made pursuant to Section 1(b) (each of the dates specified in (A), (B) or (C) being referred to as a “Delivery Date”), issue and deliver or caused to be delivered to the Holder the number of Warrant Shares as shall be determined as provided herein. As long as the Company’s transfer agent (“Transfer Agent”) participates in the Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) Fast Automated Securities Transfer program (“FAST”), and except as otherwise provided in the next following sentence of this Section 2, the Company shall effect delivery of Warrant Shares to the Holder by crediting the account of the Holder or its nominee at DTC (as specified in the applicable Exercise Notice) with the number of Warrant Shares required to be delivered, no later than the close of business on such Delivery Date. In the event that the Transfer Agent is not a participant in FAST, or if the Warrant Shares are not otherwise eligible for delivery through FAST, or if the Holder so specifies in an Exercise Notice or otherwise in writing on or before the Exercise Date, the Company shall effect delivery of Warrant Shares by delivering to the Holder or its nominee physical certificates representing such Warrant Shares, no later than the close of business on such Delivery Date. Warrant Shares delivered to the Holder shall not contain any restrictive legend as long as the resale of such Warrant Shares (x) has been or will be made (as certified in writing by the Holder to the Company) pursuant to an effective Registration Statement (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement), (y) has been made pursuant to Rule 144, or (z) may be made pursuant to Rule 144(k) or any successor rule or provision.

 

3. Failure to Deliver Warrant Shares.

 

(a) In the event that the Company fails for any reason to deliver to the Holder the number of Warrant Shares specified in the applicable Exercise Notice on or before the Delivery Date therefor (an “Exercise Default”), the Company shall pay to the Holder payments (“Exercise Default Payments”) in the amount of (i) (N/365) multiplied by (ii) the aggregate Exercise Price of the Warrant Shares which are the subject of such Exercise Default multiplied by (iii) the lower of twelve percent (12%) per annum and the maximum rate permitted by applicable law (the “Default Interest Rate”), where “N” equals the number of days elapsed between the original Delivery Date of such Warrant Shares and the date on which all of such Warrant Shares are issued and delivered to the Holder. Cash amounts payable hereunder shall be paid on or before the fifth (5th) Business Day of each calendar month following the calendar month in which such amount has accrued.

 

(b) In the event of an Exercise Default, the Holder may, upon written notice to the Company, regain on the date of such notice the rights of the Holder under the exercised portion of this Warrant that is the subject of such Exercise Default. In such event, the Holder shall retain all of the Holder’s rights and remedies with respect to the Company’s failure to deliver such Warrant Shares (including without limitation the right to receive the cash payments specified in

 

-3-


Section 3(a) above); provided, however, that such cash payments shall cease to accrue effective as of the date of such notice.

 

(c) The Holder’s rights and remedies hereunder are cumulative, and no right or remedy is exclusive of any other. In addition to the amounts specified herein, the Holder shall have the right to pursue all other remedies available to it at law or in equity (including, without limitation, a decree of specific performance and/or injunctive relief). Nothing herein shall limit the Holder’s right to pursue actual damages for the Company’s failure to issue and deliver Warrant Shares on the applicable Delivery Date (including, without limitation, damages relating to any purchase of Common Stock by the Holder to make delivery on a sale effected in anticipation of receiving Warrant Shares upon exercise, such damages to be in an amount equal to (A) the aggregate amount paid by the Holder for the Common Stock so purchased minus (B) the aggregate amount of net proceeds, if any, received by the Holder from the sale of the Warrant Shares issued by the Company pursuant to such exercise).

 

4. Exercise Limitations. In no event shall a Holder be permitted to exercise this Warrant, or part hereof, if, upon such exercise, the number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Holder (other than shares which would otherwise be deemed beneficially owned except for being subject to a limitation on conversion or exercise analogous to the limitation contained in this Section 4(a)), would exceed 4.99% of the number of shares of Common Stock then issued and outstanding. As used herein, beneficial ownership shall be determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the rules thereunder. To the extent that the limitation contained in this Section 4(a) applies, the submission of an Exercise Notice by the Holder shall be deemed to be the Holder’s representation that this Warrant is exercisable pursuant to the terms hereof and the Company shall be entitled to rely on such representation without making any further inquiry as to whether this Section 4(a) applies. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to restrict the right of a Holder to exercise this Warrant, or part thereof, at such time as such exercise will not violate the provisions of this Section 4(a). This Section 4(a) may not be amended unless such amendment is approved by the holders of a majority of the Common Stock then outstanding; provided, however, that the limitations contained in this Section 4(a) shall cease to apply (x) upon sixty (60) days’ prior written notice from the Holder to the Company, or (y) immediately upon written notice from the Holder to the Company at any time after the public announcement or other disclosure of a Major Transaction (as defined below) or a Change of Control.

 

5. Payment of the Exercise Price; Cashless Exercise. The Holder may pay the Exercise Price in either of the following forms or, at the election of Holder, a combination thereof:

 

(a) through a cash exercise (a “Cash Exercise”) by delivering immediately available funds, or

 

(b) if an effective Registration Statement is not available for the resale of all of the Warrant Shares issuable hereunder at the time an Exercise Notice is delivered to the Company, through a cashless exercise (a “Cashless Exercise”), as hereinafter provided. The Holder may effect a Cashless Exercise by surrendering this Warrant to the Company and noting on the

 

-4-


Exercise Notice that the Holder wishes to effect a Cashless Exercise, upon which the Company shall issue to the Holder the number of Warrant Shares determined as follows:

 

     X = Y x (A-B)/A

 

where: X = the number of Warrant Shares to be issued to the Holder;

 

     Y = the number of Warrant Shares with respect to which this Warrant is being exercised;

 

     A = the Market Price as of the Exercise Date; and

 

     B = the Exercise Price.

 

For purposes of Rule 144, it is intended and acknowledged that the Warrant Shares issued in a Cashless Exercise transaction shall be deemed to have been acquired by the Holder, and the holding period for the Warrant Shares required by Rule 144 shall be deemed to have been commenced, on the Issue Date.

 

6. Anti-Dilution Adjustments; Distributions; Other Events. The Exercise Price and the number of Warrant Shares issuable hereunder shall be subject to adjustment from time to time as provided in this Section 6. In the event that any adjustment of the Exercise Price or the number of Warrant Shares as required herein results in a fraction of a cent or fraction of a share, as applicable, such Exercise Price or number of Warrant Shares shall be rounded up or down to the nearest cent or share, as applicable.

 

(a) Subdivision or Combination of Common Stock. If the Company, at any time after the Execution Date, subdivides (by any stock split, stock dividend, recapitalization, reorganization, reclassification or otherwise) the outstanding shares of Common Stock into a greater number of shares, then effective upon the close of business on the record date for effecting such subdivision, the Exercise Price in effect immediately prior to such subdivision will be proportionately reduced. If the Company, at any time after the Issue Date, combines (by reverse stock split, recapitalization, reorganization, reclassification or otherwise) the outstanding shares of Common Stock into a smaller number of shares, then, effective upon the close of business on the record date for effecting such combination, the Exercise Price in effect immediately prior to such combination will be proportionally increased.

 

(b) Distributions. If the Company shall declare or make any distribution of cash or any other assets (or rights to acquire such assets) to holders of Common Stock, as a partial liquidating dividend or otherwise, including without limitation any dividend or distribution to the Company’s stockholders in shares (or rights to acquire shares) of capital stock of a subsidiary) (a “Distribution”), the Company shall deliver written notice of such Distribution (a “Distribution Notice”) to the Holder at least thirty (30) days prior to the earlier to occur of (i) the record date for determining stockholders entitled to such Distribution (the “Record Date”) and (ii) the date on which such Distribution is made (the “Distribution Date”). In the Distribution Notice to a Holder, the Company must indicate whether the Company has elected (A) to deliver to such Holder the same amount and type of assets being distributed in such Distribution as though the

 

-5-


Holder were a holder on the Determination Date therefor of a number of shares of Common Stock into which the this Warrant is exercisable as of such Determination Date (such number of shares to be determined at the Exercise Price then in effect and without giving effect to any limitations on such exercise) or (B) to reduce the Exercise Price as of the Determination Date therefor by an amount equal to the fair market value of the assets to be distributed divided by the number of shares of Common Stock as to which such Distribution is to be made, such fair market value to be reasonably determined in good faith by the independent members of the Company’s Board of Directors. If the Company does not notify the Holders of its election pursuant to the preceding sentence within two (2) Business Days following the date on which the Company publicly announces a Distribution, the Company shall be deemed to have elected clause (A) of the preceding sentence.

 

(c) Dilutive Issuances.

 

(i) Adjustment Upon Dilutive Issuance. If, at any time after the Issue Date, the Company issues or sells, or in accordance with subparagraph (iii) of this paragraph (c), is deemed to have issued or sold, any shares of Common Stock for no consideration or for a consideration per share less than the Exercise Price on the date of such issuance or sale (or deemed issuance or sale) (a “Dilutive Issuance”), then the Exercise Price shall be adjusted as follows:

 

(A) If such Dilutive Issuance occurs prior to the Effective Date (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement), then effective immediately upon the Dilutive Issuance, the Exercise Price shall be adjusted so as to equal the consideration received or receivable by the Company (on a per share basis) for the additional shares of Common Stock so issued, sold or deemed issued or sold in such Dilutive Issuance (which, in the case of a deemed issuance or sale, shall be calculated in accordance with subparagraph (iii) below). Notwithstanding the foregoing, prior to the Effective Date, the Company shall not engage in any transaction that would result in the issuance or deemed issuance of shares of Common Stock (other than Excluded Securities (as defined below)) for no consideration.

 

(B) If such Dilutive Issuance occurs on or after the Effective Date, then effective immediately upon the Dilutive Issuance, the Exercise Price shall be adjusted so as to equal an amount determined by multiplying such Exercise Price by the following fraction:

 

N0 + N1    
N0 + N2    

 

where:

 

  N0  =        

the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to the issuance, sale or deemed issuance or sale of such additional shares of Common Stock in such Dilutive Issuance (without taking into account any shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion, exchange or exercise of any securities or other

 

-6-


 

instruments which are convertible into or exercisable or exchangeable for Common Stock (“Convertible Securities”) or options, warrants or other rights to purchase or subscribe for Common Stock or Convertible Securities (“Purchase Rights”), other than the shares of Common Stock issuable under the Warrants, which will be taken into account);

 

  N1  =         the number of shares of Common Stock which the aggregate consideration, if any, received or receivable by the Company for the total number of such additional shares of Common Stock so issued, sold or deemed issued or sold in such Dilutive Issuance (which, in the case of a deemed issuance or sale, shall be calculated in accordance with subparagraph (iii) below) would purchase at the Exercise Price in effect immediately prior to such Dilutive Issuance; and

 

  N2  =         the number of such additional shares of Common Stock so issued, sold or deemed issued or sold in such Dilutive Issuance.

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, no adjustment shall be made pursuant hereto if such adjustment would result in an increase in the Exercise Price.

 

(ii) Adjustment Upon Below Market Issuance. If, at any time after the Issue Date, the Company issues or sells, or in accordance with subparagraph (iii) of this paragraph (c), is deemed to have issued or sold, any shares of Common Stock for per share consideration less than an amount equal to 95% of the Five (5) Day VWAP (as defined below) on the date of such issuance or sale (or deemed issuance or sale) (a “Below Market Issuance”), then effective immediately upon the Dilutive Issuance, the Exercise Price shall be adjusted so as to equal an amount determined by multiplying such Exercise Price by the following fraction:

 

N0 + N1    
N0 + N2    

 

where:

 

  N0  =         the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to the issuance, sale or deemed issuance or sale of such additional shares of Common Stock in such Below Market Issuance (without taking into account any shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion, exchange or exercise of any Convertible Securities or Purchase Rights, other than the shares of Common Stock issuable under the Warrants, which will be taken into account);

 

  N1  =        

the number of shares of Common Stock which the aggregate consideration, if any, received or receivable by the Company for the total number of such additional shares of Common Stock so issued, sold or deemed issued or sold in such Below Market

 

-7-


 

Issuance (which, in the case of a deemed issuance or sale, shall be calculated in accordance with subparagraph (iii) below) would purchase at the Market Price in effect on the date of such Below Market Issuance; and

 

  N2  =         the number of such additional shares of Common Stock so issued, sold or deemed issued or sold in such Below Market Issuance.

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, no adjustment shall be made pursuant to this paragraph (c)(ii) if such adjustment would result in an increase in the Exercise Price. In the event that the Company effects an issuance that is both a Dilutive Issuance and a Below Market Issuance, the Exercise Price will be adjusted to the lower of the prices calculated pursuant to subparagraphs (i) and (ii) of this paragraph (c).

 

As used herein, the term “Five (5) Day VWAP” means, as of a particular date, the average of each daily VWAP for the five (5) consecutive Trading Days occurring immediately prior to (but not including) such date. For the avoidance of doubt, the Five (5) Day VWAP shall be determined by calculating the daily VWAP for each of the five (5) Trading Days immediately preceding the relevant date, adding together all of the daily VWAPs for such five (5) Trading Day period, and dividing such sum by five (5).

 

(iii) Effect On Exercise Price Of Certain Events. For purposes of determining the adjusted Exercise Price under subparagraph (i) or (ii) of this paragraph (c), the following will be applicable:

 

(A) Issuance Of Purchase Rights. If the Company issues or sells any Purchase Rights, whether or not immediately exercisable, and the price per share for which Common Stock is issuable upon the exercise of such Purchase Rights (and the price of any conversion of Convertible Securities, if applicable) is less than either or both of an amount equal to 95% of the Five (5) Day VWAP and the Exercise Price in effect on the date of issuance or sale of such Purchase Rights, then the maximum total number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of all such Purchase Rights (assuming full conversion, exercise or exchange of Convertible Securities, if applicable) shall, as of the date of the issuance or sale of such Purchase Rights, be deemed to be outstanding and to have been issued and sold by the Company for such price per share. For purposes of the preceding sentence, the “price per share for which Common Stock is issuable upon the exercise of such Purchase Rights” shall be determined by dividing (x) the total amount, if any, received or receivable by the Company as consideration for the issuance or sale of all such Purchase Rights, plus the minimum aggregate amount of additional consideration, if any, payable to the Company upon the exercise of all such Purchase Rights, plus, in the case of Convertible Securities issuable upon the exercise of such Purchase Rights, the minimum aggregate amount of additional consideration payable upon the conversion, exercise or exchange thereof (determined in accordance with the calculation method set forth in subparagraph (iii)(B) below) at the time such Convertible Securities first become convertible, exercisable or exchangeable, by (y) the maximum total number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of all such Purchase Rights (assuming full conversion, exercise or exchange of Convertible Securities, if applicable). No further adjustment to the Exercise Price shall be made upon

 

-8-


the actual issuance of such Common Stock upon the exercise of such Purchase Rights or upon the conversion, exercise or exchange of Convertible Securities issuable upon exercise of such Purchase Rights.

 

(B) Issuance Of Convertible Securities. If the Company issues or sells any Convertible Securities, whether or not immediately convertible, exercisable or exchangeable, and the price per share for which Common Stock is issuable upon such conversion, exercise or exchange is less than either or both of an amount equal to 95% of the Five (5) Day VWAP and the Exercise Price in effect on the date of issuance or sale of such Convertible Securities, then the maximum total number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon the conversion, exercise or exchange of all such Convertible Securities shall, as of the date of the issuance or sale of such Convertible Securities, be deemed to be outstanding and to have been issued and sold by the Company for such price per share. If the Convertible Securities so issued or sold do not have a fluctuating conversion or exercise price or exchange ratio, then for the purposes of the immediately preceding sentence, the “price per share for which Common Stock is issuable upon such conversion, exercise or exchange” shall be determined by dividing (x) the total amount, if any, received or receivable by the Company as consideration for the issuance or sale of all such Convertible Securities, plus the minimum aggregate amount of additional consideration, if any, payable to the Company upon the conversion, exercise or exchange thereof (determined in accordance with the calculation method set forth in this subparagraph (iii)(B)), by (y) the maximum total number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon the exercise, conversion or exchange of all such Convertible Securities. If the Convertible Securities so issued or sold have a fluctuating conversion or exercise price or exchange ratio (a “Variable Rate Convertible Security”) (provided, however, that if the conversion or exercise price or exchange ratio of a Convertible Security may fluctuate solely as a result of provisions designed to protect against dilution, such Convertible Security shall not be deemed to be a Variable Rate Convertible Security), then for purposes of the first sentence of this subparagraph (B), the “price per share for which Common Stock is issuable upon such conversion, exercise or exchange” shall be deemed to be the lowest price per share which would be applicable (assuming all holding period and other conditions to any discounts contained in such Variable Rate Convertible Security have been satisfied) if the conversion price of such Variable Rate Convertible Security on the date of issuance or sale thereof were seventy-five percent (75%) of the actual conversion price on such date (the “Assumed Variable Market Price”), and, further, if the conversion price of such Variable Rate Convertible Security at any time or times thereafter is less than or equal to the Assumed Variable Market Price last used for making any adjustment under this paragraph (c) with respect to any Variable Rate Convertible Security, the Exercise Price in effect at such time shall be readjusted to equal the Exercise Price which would have resulted if the Assumed Variable Market Price at the time of issuance of the Variable Rate Convertible Security had been seventy-five percent (75%) of the actual conversion price of such Variable Rate Convertible Security existing at the time of the adjustment required by this sentence. No further adjustment to the Exercise Price shall be made upon the actual issuance of such Common Stock upon conversion, exercise or exchange of such Convertible Securities.

 

-9-


(C) Change In Option Price Or Conversion Rate. If, following an adjustment to the Exercise Price upon the issuance of Purchase Rights or Convertible Securities pursuant to a Dilutive Issuance or a Below Market Issuance, there is a change at any time in (x) the amount of additional consideration payable to the Company upon the exercise of any Purchase Rights; (y) the amount of additional consideration, if any, payable to the Company upon the conversion, exercise or exchange of any Convertible Securities; or (z) the rate at which any Convertible Securities are convertible into or exercisable or exchangeable for Common Stock (in each such case, other than under or by reason of provisions designed to protect against dilution), then in any such case, the Exercise Price in effect at the time of such change shall be readjusted to the Exercise Price which would have been in effect at such time had such Purchase Rights or Convertible Securities still outstanding provided for such changed additional consideration or changed conversion, exercise or exchange rate, as the case may be, at the time initially issued or sold.

 

(D) Calculation Of Consideration Received. If any Common Stock, Purchase Rights or Convertible Securities are issued or sold for cash, the consideration received therefor will be the amount received by the Company therefore. In case any Common Stock, Purchase Rights or Convertible Securities are issued or sold for a consideration part or all of which shall be other than cash, including in the case of a strategic or similar arrangement in which the other entity will provide services to the Company, purchase services from the Company or otherwise provide intangible consideration to the Company, the amount of the consideration other than cash received by the Company (including the net present value of the consideration expected by the Company for the provided or purchased services) shall be the fair market value of such consideration, except where such consideration consists of publicly traded securities, in which case the amount of consideration received by the Company will be the Market Price thereof on the date of receipt. In case any Common Stock, Purchase Rights or Convertible Securities are issued in connection with any merger or consolidation in which the Company is the surviving corporation, the amount of consideration therefor will be deemed to be the fair market value of such portion of the net assets and business of the non-surviving corporation as is attributable to such Common Stock, Purchase Rights or Convertible Securities, as the case may be. Notwithstanding anything else herein to the contrary, if Common Stock Purchase Rights or Convertible Securities are issued or sold in conjunction with each other as part of a single transaction or in a series of related transactions, the Holder may elect to determine the amount of consideration deemed to be received by the Company therefor by deducting the fair value of any type of securities (the “Disregarded Securities”) issued or sold in such transaction or series of transactions. If the Holder makes an election pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence, no adjustment to the Exercise Price shall be made pursuant to this paragraph (c) for the issuance of the Disregarded Securities or upon any conversion, exercise or exchange thereof. The independent members of the Company’s Board of Directors shall calculate reasonably and in good faith, using standard commercial valuation methods appropriate for valuing such assets, the fair market value of any consideration other than cash or securities.

 

-10-


(E) Issuances Without Consideration Pursuant to Existing Securities. If the Company issues (or becomes obligated to issue) shares of Common Stock pursuant to any anti-dilution or similar adjustments (other than as a result of stock splits, stock dividends and the like) contained in any Convertible Securities or Purchase Rights outstanding as of the date hereof, then all shares of Common Stock so issued shall be deemed to have been issued for no consideration.

 

(iv) Exceptions To Adjustment Of Exercise Price. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no adjustment to the Exercise Price shall be made pursuant to this paragraph (c) upon the issuance of any Excluded Securities. For purposes hereof, “Excluded Securities” means (I) securities purchased under the Securities Purchase Agreement; (II) securities issued upon exercise of the Warrants; (III) shares of Common Stock issuable or issued to (x) employees or directors from time to time either directly or upon the exercise of options, in such case granted or to be granted by the Board of Directors, pursuant to one or more stock option plans or restricted stock plans or stock purchase plans in effect as of the Closing Date or approved by the independent members of the Board of Directors or by the Company’s stockholders, or (y) consultants, either directly or pursuant to warrants to purchase Common Stock that are outstanding on the date hereof or issued hereafter, provided such issuances are approved by the independent members of the Board of Directors or by the Company’s stockholders; (IV) except as required by subparagraph (c)(ii)(E) above, shares of Common Stock issued in connection with any Convertible Securities or Purchase Rights outstanding on the date hereof; (V) shares of Common Stock issued to a Person in connection with a joint venture, strategic alliance or other commercial relationship with such Person relating to the operation of the Company’s business and not for the purpose of raising equity capital; and (VI) securities issued with respect to which the Holders consents that no such adjustment shall be made as a result of such issuance.

 

(v) Notice Of Adjustments. Upon the occurrence of one or more adjustments or readjustments of the Exercise Price pursuant to this paragraph (c) or any change in the number or type of stock, securities and/or other property issuable upon exercise of this Warrant, the Company, at its expense, shall promptly compute such adjustment or readjustment or change and prepare and furnish to the Holder a notice (an “Adjustment Notice”) setting forth such adjustment or readjustment or change and showing in detail the facts upon which such adjustment or readjustment or change is based, and, on or before the time that it delivers an Adjustment Notice, publicly disclose the contents thereof. The failure of the Company to deliver an Adjustment Notice shall not affect the validity of any such adjustment.

 

(d) Major Transactions. In the event of a merger, consolidation, business combination, tender offer, exchange of shares, recapitalization, reorganization, redemption or other similar event, as a result of which shares of Common Stock shall be changed into the same or a different number of shares of the same or another class or classes of stock or securities or other assets of the Company or another entity or the Company shall sell all or substantially all of its assets (each of the foregoing being a “Major Transaction”), the Company will give the Holder at least ten (10) Trading Days written notice prior to the earlier of (I) the closing or effectiveness of such Major Transaction and (II) the record date for the receipt of such shares of stock or securities or other assets, and: (i) the Holder shall be permitted to exercise this Warrant in whole or in part at any time prior to the record date for the receipt of such consideration and shall be entitled to receive, for each share of Common Stock issuable to Holder upon such exercise, the

 

-11-


same per share consideration payable to the other holders of Common Stock in connection with such Major Transaction, and (ii) if and to the extent that the Holder retains any portion of this Warrant following such record date, the Company will cause the surviving or, in the event of a sale of assets, purchasing entity, as a condition precedent to such Major Transaction, to assume the obligations of the Company under this Warrant, with such adjustments to the Exercise Price and the securities covered hereby as may be reasonably determined in good faith by the Board of Directors to be necessary in order to preserve the economic benefits of this Warrant to the Holder.

 

(e) Adjustments; Additional Shares, Securities or Assets. In the event that at any time, as a result of an adjustment made pursuant to this Section 6, the Holder of this Warrant shall, upon exercise of this Warrant, become entitled to receive securities or assets (other than Common Stock) then, wherever appropriate, all references herein to shares of Common Stock shall be deemed to refer to and include such shares and/or other securities or assets; and thereafter the number of such shares and/or other securities or assets shall be subject to adjustment from time to time in a manner and upon terms as nearly equivalent as practicable to the provisions of this Section 6. Any adjustment made herein pursuant to Section 6(a) that results in a decrease in the Exercise Price shall also effect a proportional increase in the number of shares of Common Stock into which this Warrant is exercisable.

 

7. Fractional Interests.

 

No fractional shares or scrip representing fractional shares shall be issuable upon the exercise of this Warrant, but on exercise of this Warrant, the Holder hereof may purchase only a whole number of shares of Common Stock.
