EXHIBIT 4.3 ----------- ANNEX I TO SECURITIES PURCHASE AGREEMENT [PROTOTYPE FOR EACH ISSUANCE] FORM OF DEBENTURE THESE SECURITIES HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, OR THE SECURITIES LAWS OF ANY STATE AND MAY NOT BE SOLD OR OFFERED FOR SALE IN THE ABSENCE OF AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT FOR THE SECURITIES OR AN OPINION OF COUNSEL OR OTHER EVIDENCE ACCEPTABLE TO THE COMPANY THAT SUCH REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED. No._________________________ US $ ___________ RASER TECHNOLOGIES, INC. 5% SENIOR SUBORDINATED CONVERTIBLE DEBENTURE DUE ___________________ THIS DEBENTURE is one of a duly authorized issue of up to $ 100,000.00 in Debentures of RASER TECHNOLOGIES, INC, a corporation organized and existing under the laws of the State of Utah (the "Company") designated as its 5% Senior Subordinated Convertible Debentures. FOR VALUE RECEIVED, the Company promises to pay to Professional Traders Fund, the registered holder hereof (the "Holder"), the principal sum of and 00/100 Dollars (US $ ) on ____________________ (the "Maturity Date") and to pay interest on the principal sum outstanding from time to time in arrears at the rate of 5% per annum, accruing from , , the date of initial issuance of this Debenture (the "Issue Date"), on the date (each, an "Interest Payment Date") which is the earlier of (i) a Conversion Date (as defined below). (as defined below) or (ii) the Maturity Date, as the case may be. Accrual of interest shall commence on the first such business day to occur after the Issue Date and shall continue to accrue on a daily basis until payment in full of the principal sum has been made or duly provided for. Additional provisions regarding the payment of interest are provided in Section 4(D) below (the terms of which shall govern as if this sentence were not included in this Debenture). This Debenture is being issued pursuant to the terms of the Securities Purchase Agreement, dated _____________ , 2004 (the "Securities Purchase Agreement"), to which the Company and the Holder (or the Holder's predecessor in interest) are parties. Capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Securities Purchase Agreement. This Debenture is subject to the following additional provisions: 1. The Debentures will initially be issued in denominations determined by the Company, but are exchangeable for an equal aggregate principal amount of Debentures of different denominations, as requested by the Holder surrendering the same. No service charge will be made for such registration or transfer or exchange. 1 2. The Company shall be entitled to withhold from all payments of principal of, and interest on, this Debenture any amounts required to be withheld under the applicable provisions of the United States income tax laws or other applicable laws at the time of such payments, and Holder shall execute and deliver all required documentation in connection therewith. 3. This Debenture has been issued subject to investment representations of the original purchaser hereof and may be transferred or exchanged only in compliance with the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Act"), and other applicable state and foreign securities laws and the terms of the Securities Purchase Agreement . In the event of any proposed transfer of this Debenture, the Company may require, prior to issuance of a new Debenture in the name of such other person, that it receive reasonable transfer documentation that is sufficient to evidence that such proposed transfer complies with the Act and other applicable state and foreign securities laws and the terms of the Securities Purchase Agreement. Prior to due presentment for transfer of this Debenture, the Company and any agent of the Company may treat the person in whose name this Debenture is duly registered on the Company's Debenture Register as the owner hereof for the purpose of receiving payment as herein provided and for all other purposes, whether or not this Debenture be overdue, and neither the Company nor any such agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary. 4. A. (i) At any time on or after the Issue Date and prior to the time this Debenture is paid in full in accordance with its terms (including without limitation after the Maturity Date and after the occurrence of an Event of Default, as defined below), the Holder of this Debenture is entitled, at its option, subject to the following provisions of this Section 4, to convert this Debenture at any time into shares of Common Stock, $0.01 par value ("Common Stock"), of the Company of the Company at the Conversion Price (as defined below). (ii) The term "Conversion Price" means US $2.00. (iii) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Debenture to the contrary, if, on the Maturity Date there is an Unconverted Debenture (as defined below), the Company shall have the option to pay the principal and accrued interest (through the actual date of payment) of Unconverted Debenture (the "Maturity Amount") either (i) in cash (and such cash shall be applied first to interest and then to principal) or (ii) to the extent not paid in cash as provided in clause (i), by delivering to the Holder such number of Conversion Shares equal to such unpaid Maturity Amount divided by the Conversion Price then in effect (such Conversion Shares, the "Maturity Date Shares"). The option to pay any or all of the Maturity Amount by the issuance of Maturity Date Shares shall be subject to the following conditions: (x) the Registration Statement covering such shares must be effective at the time the Maturity Date Shares are issued and (y) the issuance of the Maturity Date Shares shall not exceed the amount contemplated by Section 4(C) hereof. B. Conversion shall be effectuated by faxing a Notice of Conversion (as defined below) to the Company as provided in this paragraph. The Notice of Conversion shall be executed by the Holder of this Debenture and shall evidence such Holder's intention to convert this Debenture or a specified portion hereof in the form annexed hereto as Exhibit A. If paid in Common Stock as contemplated hereby, interest accrued or accruing from the Issue Date to the relevant Interest Payment Date shall be paid in Common Stock at the Conversion Price applicable as of such Interest Payment Date. No fractional shares of Common Stock or scrip representing fractions of shares will be issued on conversion, 2 but the number of shares issuable shall be rounded to the nearest whole share. The date on which notice of conversion is given (the "Conversion Date") shall be deemed to be the date on which the Holder faxes or otherwise delivers the conversion notice ("Notice of Conversion") to the Company so that it is received by the Company on or before such specified date, provided that, if such conversion would convert the entire remaining principal of this Debenture, the Holder shall deliver to the Company the original Debentures being converted no later than five (5) business days thereafter. Facsimile delivery of the Notice of Conversion shall be accepted by the Company at facsimile number (801) 377-3314; Attn: Mr. Jonathan Reid. Certificates representing Common Stock upon conversion ("Conversion Certificates") will be delivered to the Holder at the address specified in the Notice of Conversion (which may be the Holder's address for notices as contemplated by the Securities Purchase Agreement or a different address), via express courier, by electronic transfer or otherwise, within three (3) business days (such third business day, the "Delivery Date") after the date on which the Notice of Conversion is delivered to the Company as contemplated in this paragraph B, and, if interest is paid by Common Stock, the Interest Payment Date. The Holder shall be deemed to be the holder of the shares issuable to it in accordance with the provisions of this Section 4(B) on the Conversion Date. C. Notwithstanding any other provision hereof or of any of the other Transaction Agreements, in no event (except (i) as specifically provided herein as an exception to this provision, or (ii) while there is outstanding a tender offer for any or all of the shares of the Company's Common Stock) shall the Holder be entitled to convert any portion of this Debenture, or shall the Company have the obligation to convert such Debenture (and the Company shall not have the right to pay interest hereon in shares of Common Stock) to the extent that, after such conversion or issuance of stock in payment of interest, the sum of (1) the number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Holder and its affiliates (other than shares of Common Stock which may be deemed beneficially owned through the ownership of the unconverted portion of the Debentures or other convertible securities or of the unexercised portion of warrants or other rights to purchase Common Stock), and (2) the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon the conversion of the Debentures with respect to which the determination of this proviso is being made, would result in beneficial ownership by the Holder and its affiliates of more than 4.99% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock (after taking into account the shares to be issued to the Holder upon such conversion). For purposes of the proviso to the immediately preceding sentence, beneficial ownership shall be determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, except as otherwise provided in clause (1) of such sentence. The Holder, by its acceptance of this Debenture, further agrees that if the Holder transfers or assigns any of the Debentures to a party who or which would not be considered such an affiliate, such assignment shall be made subject to the transferee's or assignee's specific agreement to be bound by the provisions of this Section 4(C) as if such transferee or assignee were the original Holder hereof. Nothing herein shall preclude the Holder from disposing of a sufficient number of other shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Holder so as to thereafter permit the continued conversion of this Debenture. D. (i) Subject to the terms of Section 4(C) and to the other terms of this Section 4(D), interest on the principal amount of this Debenture converted pursuant to a Notice of Conversion shall be due and payable, at the option of the Company, in cash or Common Stock on the Interest Payment Date. (ii) If the interest is to be paid in cash, the Company shall make such payment within three (3) business days of the Interest Payment Date. If the interest is not paid by such third business day, the interest must be paid in Common Stock in accordance with the provisions of Section 4(D)(i) hereof, unless the Holder consents otherwise in each specific instance. 3 (iii) Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company's right to issue shares in payment of such interest is applicable if, and only if, there is then in effect a current Registration Statement covering the shares to be issued to the Holder in payment of such interest. (iv) The number of shares of Common Stock to be issued in payment of such interest shall be determined by dividing the dollar amount of the interest to be so paid by the Conversion Price on the relevant Interest Payment Date. Such Common Stock shall be delivered to the Holder, or per Holder's instructions, on the Delivery Date for the related Conversion Certificates pursuant to Section 4(B) hereof. (iv) If the Company elects to have the interest paid in cash, the Company shall make such payment within three (3) business days of the Interest Payment Date. If such payment is not made in cash by such date, it shall be deemed that, subject to the provisions of Section 4(C) hereof, the Company has elected to pay the interest in stock, if, but only if, the Registration Statement covering the shares being issued is effective on the date such shares are issued. 5. Subject to the terms of the Securities Purchase Agreement, no provision of this Debenture shall alter or impair the obligation of the Company, which is absolute and unconditional, to pay the principal of, and interest on, this Debenture at the time, place, and rate, and in the coin or currency, herein prescribed. This Debenture and all other Debentures now or hereafter issued of similar terms are direct obligations of the Company. 6. No recourse shall be had for the payment of the principal of, or the interest on, this Debenture, or for any claim based hereon, or otherwise in respect hereof, against any incorporator, shareholder, officer or director, as such, past, present or future, of the Company or any successor corporation, whether by virtue of any constitution, statute or rule of law, or by the enforcement of any assessment or penalty or otherwise, all such liability being, by the acceptance hereof and as part of the consideration for the issue hereof, expressly waived and released. 7. All payments contemplated hereby to be made "in cash" shall be made in immediately available good funds of United States of America currency by wire transfer to an account designated in writing by the Holder to the Company (which account may be changed by notice similarly given). All payments of cash and each delivery of shares of Common Stock issuable to the Holder as contemplated hereby shall be made to the Holder at the address last appearing on the Debenture Register of the Company as designated in writing by the Holder from time to time; except that the Holder can designate, by notice to the Company, a different delivery address for any one or more specific payments or deliveries. 8. If, for as long as this Debenture remains outstanding, the Company enters into a merger or consolidation with another corporation or other entity (other than where the Company is the surviving entity) or a sale or transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company to another person (collectively, a "Change of Control"), then the Company must give fifteen days written notice to the Holder of the Change of Control, whereupon the Holder may elect by written notice to the Company that the Debenture is immediately due and payable, and the Maturity Date shall be accelerated accordingly, without presentment, demand, protest or other notice of any kinds, all of which are hereby expressly waived, anything herein or in any note or other instruments contained to the contrary notwithstanding, and the Holder may immediately enforce any and all of the Holder's rights and remedies provided herein or any other rights or remedies afforded by law (the "Election"). 4 If the Holder does not make the Election, then the Company will require, in the agreements reflecting such Change of Control, that the surviving entity expressly assume the obligations of the Company hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Company enters into a Change of Control and the holders of the Common Stock are entitled to receive stock, securities or property in respect of or in exchange for Common Stock, then as a condition of such Change of Control, the Company and any such successor, purchaser or transferee will agree that the Debenture may thereafter be converted on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth above into the kind and amount of stock, securities or property receivable upon such merger, consolidation, sale or transfer by a holder of the number of shares of Common Stock into which this Debenture might have been converted immediately before such merger, consolidation, sale or transfer, subject to adjustments which shall be as nearly equivalent as may be practicable. In the event of any such proposed Change of Control, (i) the Holder hereof shall have the right to convert by delivering a Notice of Conversion to the Company within fifteen (15) days of receipt of notice of such Change of Control from the Company, except that Section 4(C) shall not apply to such conversion. 9. If, at any time while any portion of this Debenture remains outstanding, the Company spins off or otherwise divests itself of a part of its business or operations or disposes of all or of a part of its assets in a transaction (the "Spin Off") in which the Company, in addition to or in lieu of any other compensation received and retained by the Company for such business, operations or assets, causes securities of another entity (the "Spin Off Securities") to be issued to security holders of the Company, the Company shall cause (i) to be reserved Spin Off Securities equal to the number thereof which would have been issued to the Holder had all of the Holder's Debentures outstanding on the record date (the "Record Date") for determining the amount and number of Spin Off Securities to be issued to security holders of the Company (the "Outstanding Debentures") been converted as of the close of business on the trading day immediately before the Record Date (the "Reserved Spin Off Shares"), and (ii) to be issued to the Holder on the conversion of all or any of the Outstanding Debentures, such amount of the Reserved Spin Off Shares equal to (x) the Reserved Spin Off Shares multiplied by (y) a fraction, of which (I) the numerator is the principal amount of the Outstanding Debentures then being converted, and (II) the denominator is the principal amount of the Outstanding Debentures. 10. If, at any time while any portion of this Debenture remains outstanding, the Company effectuates a stock split or reverse stock split of its Common Stock or issues a dividend on its Common Stock consisting of shares of Common Stock, the Conversion Price and any other amounts calculated as contemplated hereby or by any of the other Transaction Agreements shall be equitably adjusted to reflect such action. By way of illustration, and not in limitation, of the foregoing, (i) if the Company effectuates a 2:1 split of its Common Stock, thereafter, with respect to any conversion for which the Company issues shares after the record date of such split, the Conversion Price shall be deemed to be one-half of what it had been immediately prior to such split; (ii) if the Company effectuates a 1:10 reverse split of its Common Stock, thereafter, with respect to any conversion for which the Company issues shares after the record date of such reverse split, the Conversion Price shall be deemed to be ten times what it had been calculated to be immediately prior to such split; and (iii) if the Company declares a stock dividend of one share of Common Stock for every 10 shares outstanding, thereafter, with respect to any conversion for which the Company issues shares after the record date of such dividend, the Conversion Price shall be deemed to be such amount multiplied by a fraction, of which the numerator is the number of shares (10 in the example) for which a dividend share will be issued and the denominator is such number of shares plus the dividend share(s) issuable or issued thereon (11 in the example). 5 11. The Holder of the Debenture, by acceptance hereof, agrees that this Debenture is being acquired for investment and that such Holder will not offer, sell or otherwise dispose of this Debenture or the shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion thereof except under circumstances which will not result in a violation of the Act or any applicable state Blue Sky or foreign laws or similar laws relating to the sale of securities. 12. The Holder acknowledges and agrees that the Debenture and all principal and interest due thereunder is and shall be subordinated to any and all secured debt issued by the Company on or after the Closing Date ("Secured Debt") to any other lender (the "Secured Lender") and the Holder shall execute such subordination agreements and other documentation as the Company or any Secured Lender may reasonably require to effect such subordination in favor of any particular Secured Lender provided (i) that the Company shall pay the Holder's reasonable costs in respect in respect of the preparation and execution of such subordination agreement, and (ii) no such Subordination Agreement shall affect any conversion rights hereunder. 13. This Debenture shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York. Each of the parties consents to the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal courts whose districts encompass any part of the City of New York or the state courts of the State of New York sitting in the City of New York in connection with any dispute arising under this Agreement and hereby waives, to the maximum extent permitted by law, any objection, including any objection based on forum non coveniens, to the bringing of any such proceeding in such jurisdictions. To the extent determined by such court, the Company shall reimburse the Holder for any reasonable legal fees and disbursements incurred by the Holder in enforcement of or protection of any of its rights under any of this Debenture. 14. The Company and the Holder hereby waive a trial by jury in any action, proceeding or counterclaim brought by either of the Parties hereto against the other in respect of any matter arising out of or in connection with this Debenture. 15. The following shall constitute an "Event of Default": a. The Company shall default in the payment of principal or interest on this Debenture, any Redemption Amount due hereunder or any other amount due, and, in any such instance, the same shall continue for a period of five (5) business days; or b. Any of the representations or warranties made by the Company herein, in the Securities Purchase Agreement or any of the other Transaction Agreements or in any certificate or financial or other written statements heretofore or hereafter furnished by the Company in connection with the execution and delivery of this Debenture or the Securities Purchase Agreement shall be false or misleading in any material respect at the time made; or c. Subject to the terms of the Securities Purchase Agreement, the Company fails to authorize or to cause its Transfer Agent to issue shares of Common Stock upon exercise by the Holder of the conversion rights of the Holder in accordance with the terms of this Debenture, fails to transfer or to cause its Transfer Agent to transfer any certificate for shares of Common Stock issued to 6 the Holder upon conversion of this Debenture and when required by this Debenture or the Registration Rights Agreement, and such transfer is otherwise lawful, or fails to remove any restrictive legend on any certificate or fails to cause its Transfer Agent to remove such restricted legend, in each case where such removal is lawful, as and when required by this Debenture, the Agreement or the Registration Rights Agreement, and any such failure shall continue uncured for ten (10) business days; or d. The Company shall fail to perform or observe, in any material respect, any other covenant, term, provision, condition, agreement or obligation of any Debenture in this series and such failure shall continue uncured for a period of thirty (30) days after written notice from the Holder of such failure; or e. The Company shall fail to perform or observe, in any material respect, any covenant, term, provision, condition, agreement or obligation of the Company under any of the Transaction Agreements and such failure shall continue uncured for a period of thirty (30) days after written notice from the Holder of such failure; or f. The Company shall (1) admit in writing its inability to pay its debts generally as they mature; (2) make an assignment for the benefit of creditors or commence proceedings for its dissolution; or (3) apply for or consent to the appointment of a trustee, liquidator or receiver for its or for a substantial part of its property or business; or g. A trustee, liquidator or receiver shall be appointed for the Company or for a substantial part of its property or business without its consent and shall not be discharged within sixty (60) days after such appointment; or h. Any governmental agency or any court of competent jurisdiction at the instance of any governmental agency shall assume custody or control of the whole or any substantial portion of the properties or assets of the Company and shall not be dismissed within sixty (60) days thereafter; or i. Bankruptcy, reorganization, insolvency or liquidation proceedings or other proceedings for relief under any bankruptcy law or any law for the relief of debtors shall be instituted by or against the Company and, if instituted against the Company, shall not be dismissed within sixty (60) days after such institution or the Company shall by any action or answer approve of, consent to, or acquiesce in any such proceedings or admit the material allegations of, or default in answering a petition filed in any such proceeding; or j. The Company shall have its Common Stock suspended from trading on, or delisted from, the Principal Trading Market for in excess of ten (10) trading days; or k. Any event defined in another provision of this Debenture as an Event of Default shall have occurred. 7 If an Event of Default shall have occurred, then, or at any time thereafter, and in each and every such case, unless such Event of Default shall have been waived in writing by the Holder (which waiver shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any subsequent default) at the option of the Holder and in the Holder's sole discretion, the Holder may consider this Debenture immediately due and payable (and the Maturity Date shall be accelerated accordingly), without presentment, demand, protest or notice of any kinds, all of which are hereby expressly waived, anything herein or in any note or other instruments contained to the contrary notwithstanding, and the Holder may immediately enforce any and all of the Holder's rights and remedies provided herein or any other rights or remedies afforded by law. 16. Nothing contained in this Debenture shall be construed as conferring upon the Holder the right to vote or to receive dividends or to consent or receive notice as a shareholder in respect of any meeting of shareholders or any rights whatsoever as a shareholder of the Company, unless and to the extent converted in accordance with the terms hereof. 17. In the event for any reason, any payment by or act of the Company or the Holder shall result in payment of interest which would exceed the limit authorized by or be in violation of the law of the jurisdiction applicable to this Debenture, then ipso facto the obligation of the Company to pay interest or perform such act or requirement shall be reduced to the limit authorized under such law, so that in no event shall the Company be obligated to pay any such interest, perform any such act or be bound by any requirement which would result in the payment of interest in excess of the limit so authorized. In the event any payment by or act of the Company shall result in the extraction of a rate of interest in excess of a sum which is lawfully collectible as interest, then such amount (to the extent of such excess not returned to the Company) shall, without further agreement or notice between or by the Company or the Holder, be deemed applied to the payment of principal, if any, hereunder immediately upon receipt of such excess funds by the Holder, with the same force and effect as though the Company had specifically designated such sums to be so applied to principal and the Holder had agreed to accept such sums as an interest-free prepayment of this Debenture. If any part of such excess remains after the principal has been paid in full, whether by the provisions of the preceding sentences of this Section or otherwise, such excess shall be deemed to be an interest-free loan from the Company to the Holder, which loan shall be payable immediately upon demand by the Company. The provisions of this Section shall control every other provision of this Debenture. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Company has caused this instrument to be duly executed by an officer thereunto duly authorized. Dated: ___________________, 20___ Raser Technolgies, Inc.

In consideration of good and valuable consideration, the receipt of which is hereby acknowledged by RASER TECHNOLOGIES, INC., a Utah corporation (the "Company"), Professional Traders Fund 48 Woodport Road Sparta, New Jersey 07871 or registered assigns (the "Holder") is hereby granted the right to purchase at any time until 5:00 P.M., New York City time, on ___ day of May, 2007 (the "Expiration Date"), Fifty Thousand (50,000) fully paid and nonassessable shares of the Company's Common Stock, $0.01 par value per share (the "Common Stock"), at an initial exercise price per share (the "Exercise Price") of $3.50 per share, subject to further adjustment as set forth herein. 2. Exercise of Warrants. (a) This Warrant is exercisable in whole or in part at any time and from time to time. Such exercise shall be effectuated by submitting to the Company (either by delivery to the Company or by facsimile transmission as provided in Section 8 hereof) a completed and duly executed Notice of Exercise (substantially in the form attached to this Warrant) as provided in this paragraph. The date such Notice of Exercise is faxed to the Company shall be the "Exercise Date," provided that the Holder of this Warrant tenders this Warrant Certificate to the Company within five (5) business days thereafter. The Notice of Exercise shall be executed by the Holder of this Warrant and shall indicate the number of shares then being purchased pursuant to such exercise. Upon surrender of this Warrant Certificate, together with appropriate payment of the Exercise Price for the shares of Common Stock purchased, the Holder shall be entitled to receive a certificate or certificates for the shares of Common Stock so purchased. (b) The Exercise Price per share of Common Stock for the shares then being exercised shall be payable in cash or by certified or official bank check. (c) The Holder shall be deemed to be the holder of the shares issuable to it in accordance with the provisions of this Section 2 on the Exercise Date. 3. Reservation of Shares. The Company hereby agrees that at all times during the term of this Warrant there shall be reserved for issuance upon exercise of this Warrant such number of shares of its Common Stock as shall be required for issuance upon exercise of this Warrant (the "Warrant Shares"). 4. Mutilation or Loss of Warrant. Upon receipt by the Company of evidence satisfactory to it of the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of this Warrant, and (in the case of loss, theft or destruction) receipt of reasonably satisfactory indemnification, and (in the case of mutilation) upon surrender and cancellation of this Warrant, the Company will execute and deliver a new Warrant of like tenor and date and any such lost, stolen, destroyed or mutilated Warrant shall thereupon become void. 13 5. Rights of the Holder. The Holder shall not, by virtue hereof, be entitled to any rights of a stockholder in the Company, either at law or equity, and the rights of the Holder are limited to those expressed in this Warrant and are not enforceable against the Company except to the extent set forth herein. 6. Protection Against Dilution and Other Adjustments. 6.1 Adjustment Mechanism. The Company covenants and agrees that, except for the sale of Debentures and Warrants to the Other Lenders, and, the period (the "New Transaction Period") from the Initial Closing Date of the Securities Purchase Agreement and until 60 days after the Effective Date of the Registration Statement, any subsequent or further offer or sale of Common Stock or securities convertible into and/or other rights exercisable for the issuance of Common Stock (collectively, "New Common Stock") to or with any third party will constitute a "New Transaction". Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 6, a New Transaction shall not include that certain transaction in which the Company may raise an additional approximately $3,500,000.00, or more, involving some or none of the Other Lenders within the transaction period. In the event there is a New Transaction: (A) the number of Warrants shall be adjusted to equal the higher of (1) the number of Warrant Shares originally provided in the Warrants or (2) the number of warrants under the terms of the New Transaction multiplied by the lesser of(I) the number 1, if the exercise price of the warrants under the terms of the New Transaction ("the New Transaction Warrant Price") is less than or equal to the existing Warrant Price and (II) the quotient of the existing Warrant Price divided by the New Transaction Warrant Price, if the the New Transaction Warrant Price exceeds the existing Warrant Price; and (B) the Exercise Price on the Warrants shall be adjusted to equal the lower of (1) the then existing Warrant Price or (2) the New Transaction Warrant Price. If an adjustment of the Exercise Price is required pursuant to this Section 6, the Holder shall be entitled to purchase such number of additional shares of Common Stock as will cause (i) the total number of shares of Common Stock Holder is entitled to purchase pursuant to this Warrant, multiplied by (ii) the adjusted Exercise Price per share, to equal (iii) the dollar amount of the total number of shares of Common Stock Holder is entitled to purchase before adjustment multiplied by the total Exercise Price immediately before adjustment. 6.2 Capital Adjustments. If, at any time while any portion of this Warrant remains outstanding, the Company effectuates a stock split or reverse stock split of its Common Stock or issues a dividend on its Common Stock consisting of shares of Common Stock, the Exercise Price and any other amounts calculated as contemplated hereby or by any of the other Transaction Agreements shall be equitably adjusted to reflect such action. By way of illustration, and not in limitation, of the foregoing, (i) if the Company effectuates a 2:1 split of its Common Stock, thereafter, with respect to any conversion for which the Company issues shares after the record date of such split, the Exercise Price 14 shall be deemed to be one-half of what it had been immediately prior to such split; (ii) if the Company effectuates a 1:10 reverse split of its Common Stock, thereafter, with respect to any conversion for which the Company issues shares after the record date of such reverse split, the Exercise Price shall be deemed to be ten times what it had been calculated to be immediately prior to such split; and (iii) if the Company declares a stock dividend of one share of Common Stock for every 10 shares outstanding, thereafter, with respect to any conversion for which the Company issues shares after the record date of such dividend, the Exercise Price shall be deemed to be such amount multiplied by a fraction, of which the numerator is the number of shares (10 in the example) for which a dividend share will be issued and the denominator is such number of shares plus the dividend share(s) issuable or issued thereon (11 in the example). In case of any stock split or reverse stock split, stock dividend, reclassification of the Common Stock, recapitalization, merger or consolidation, or like capital adjustment affecting the Common Stock of the Company prior to the exercise of this Warrant or its applicable portion, the provisions of this Section 6 shall be applied as if such capital adjustment event had occurred immediately prior to the exercise date of this Warrant and the original Exercise Price had been fairly allocated to the stock resulting from such capital adjustment; and in other respects the provisions of this Section shall be applied in a fair, equitable and reasonable manner so as to give effect, as nearly as may be, to the purposes hereof. 6.3 Spin Off. If, for any reason, prior to the exercise of this Warrant in full, the Company spins off or otherwise divests itself of a part of its business or operations or disposes all or of a part of its assets in a transaction (the "Spin Off") in which the Company does not receive compensation for such business, operations or assets, but causes securities of another entity to be issued to security holders of the Company, then the Company shall notify the Holder at least thirty (30) days prior to the record date with respect to such Spin-Off. 7. Transfer to Comply with the Securities Act; Registration Rights. 7.1 Transfer. This Warrant has not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, (the "Act") and has been issued to the Holder for investment and not with a view to the distribution of either the Warrant or the Warrant Shares. Except for transfers to officers, employees and affiliates of the Holder, neither this Warrant nor any of the Warrant Shares or any other security issued or issuable upon exercise of this Warrant may be sold, transferred, pledged or hypothecated in the absence of an effective registration statement under the Act relating to such security or an opinion of counsel satisfactory to the Company that registration is not required under the Act. Each certificate for the Warrant, the Warrant Shares and any other security issued or issuable upon exercise of this Warrant shall contain a legend on the face thereof, in form and substance satisfactory to counsel for the Company, setting forth the restrictions on transfer contained in this Section. 7.2 Registration Rights. (a) Reference is made to the Registration Rights Agreement. The Company's obligations under the Registration Rights Agreement and the other terms and conditions thereof with respect to the Warrant Shares, including, but not necessarily limited to, the Company's commitment to file a registration statement including the Warrant Shares, to have the registration of the Warrant Shares completed and effective, and to maintain such registration, are incorporated herein by reference. (b) In addition to the registration rights referred to in the preceding provisions of Section 7.2(a), effective after the expiration of the 15 effectiveness of the Registration Statement as contemplated by the Registration Rights Agreement, the Holder shall have piggy-back registration rights with respect to the Warrant Shares then held by the Holder or then subject to issuance upon exercise of this Warrant (collectively, the "Remaining Warrant Shares"), subject to the conditions set forth below. If, at any time after the Registration Statement has ceased to be effective, the Company participates (whether voluntarily or by reason of an obligation to a third party) in the registration of any shares of the Company's stock (other than a registration on Form S-8 or on Form S-4), the Company shall give written notice thereof to the Holder and the Holder shall have the right, exercisable within ten (10) business days after receipt of such notice, to demand inclusion of all or a portion of the Holder's Remaining Warrant Shares in such registration statement. If the Holder exercises such election, the Remaining Warrant Shares so designated shall be included in the registration statement at no cost or expense to the Holder (other than any costs or commissions which would be borne by the Holder under the terms of the Registration Rights Agreement); provided, however, that if there is a managing underwriter of the offering of shares referred to in the registration statement and such managing underwriter advises the Company in writing that the number of shares proposed to be included in the offering will have an adverse effect on its ability to successfully conclude the offering and, as a result, the number of shares to be included in the offering is to be reduced, the number of Remaining Warrant Shares of the Holder which were to be included in the registration (before such reduction) will be reduced pro rata with the number of shares included for all other parties whose shares are being registered. The Holder's rights under this Section 7 shall expire at such time as the Holder can sell all of the Remaining Warrant Shares under Rule 144 without volume or other restrictions or limit. 8. Notices.
