VOLUNTARY TRANSFERS
          3.1 Third Party Offer – Right of First Refusal. If any Holder (the “Holder Offeree”) receives a “bona fide” written offer, whether such offer is transmitted to one or more Holders of the Company, (the “Third Party Offer”) from a potential transferee (the “Third Party Offeror”) to purchase Shares owned by the Holder Offeree and the Holder Offeree proposes to accept the Third Party Offer, the Holder Offeree may not sell any of such Shares unless (a) such Holder Offeree has complied with the provisions of this Article III prior to taking any such action, or (b) such sale is to a Permitted Transferee or otherwise permitted by Section 2.2. In the event a Holder elects to Transfer his Shares pursuant to this Article III, such Holder shall, and shall cause its Affiliates to, Transfer an equivalent percentage of (i) the USA Shares, (ii) the LAI Shares, and (iii) the shares of each class or series of capital stock in each other entity within the Lululemon Group, in each case held by such Holder or its Affiliates, at the time of the Transfer of Shares in accordance with the USA Stockholders Agreement and the LAI Shareholders Agreement. Within ten (10) days following the receipt of the Third Party Offer, the Holder Offeree shall obtain from the Third Party Offeror a statement in writing addressed to the Holder Offeree and signed by the Third Party Offeror in as many counterparts as may be necessary (collectively, the “Statement”) setting forth (i) the date of the Statement (the “Statement Date”); (ii) the number and class of Shares covered by the Third Party Offer, the price per Share to be paid by the Third Party Offeror (the “Third Party Price”) and the terms of payment of such Third Party Price; (iii) a representation that the Third Party Offer has been approved by the Third Party Offeror’s board of directors (or the equivalent if the Third Party Offeror is not a corporation), if the Third Party Offeror is not an individual; (iv) the Third Party Offeror’s willingness to be bound by the terms of this Agreement if the Third Party Offer is accepted; (v) the Third Party Offeror’s name, address and telephone number; and (vi) the Third Party Offeror’s willingness to supply any additional information about itself as may be reasonably requested by the Company or any of the Holders other than the Holder Offeree (the “Other Holders”).
               (a) Company Notice. Within five (5) days following the Statement Date, the Holder Offeree shall give notice (the “Company Notice”) to the Company stating that it proposes to accept the Third Party Offer. The Holder Offeree shall deliver (i) the Statement and (ii) evidence

- 13 -


 

reasonably satisfactory to the Company as to the Third Party Offeror’s financial ability to consummate the proposed purchase (the “Financial Information”).
               (b) First Option. Subject to Section 3.1(e), the Company shall thereupon have the irrevocable and exclusive option, but not the obligation (the “First Option”), to purchase all, or any portion of the Shares which the Third Party Offeror has proposed to purchase from the Holder Offeree (the “Subject Shares”) at the closing referred to in Section 3.1(f), and for the purchase price and on the terms set forth in Section 3.1(g). The First Option shall be exercised by the Company by giving notice (the “First Option Notice”) to the Holder Offeree within fifteen (15) days following the date of the Company Notice that the Company elects to exercise the First Option. Upon exercise of the First Option, the Company shall have the obligation to purchase that portion of the Subject Shares that it elected to purchase on and subject to the terms and conditions hereof. Failure by the Company to exercise the First Option or to give a First Option Notice on or prior to the fifteenth (15th) day after the date of the Company Notice shall be deemed an election by it not to exercise the First Option.
               (c) Other Holders Notice. Upon the election by the Company not to exercise or to partially exercise the First Option, as the case may be, and (i) to the extent that, together with all prior Transfers of Shares by the Holder Offeree, the Transfer of Shares pursuant to the Third Party Offer would result in a Transfer of Shares constituting more than one percent (1%) of the aggregate number of Shares outstanding on the date of such Third Party Offer, or (ii) if the Third Party Offeror is not a then current shareholder of the Company, then the Holder Offeree shall give notice (the “Other Holders Notice”) to the Other Holders stating that the Company has either elected to partially exercise the First Option or has elected not to exercise the First Option. The Holder Offeree shall deliver with the Other Holders Notice (x) the Statement, (y) the First Option Notice, if applicable, and (z) the Financial Information.
               (d) Second Option. Subject to Section 3.1(e) and the receipt of a notice under Section 3.1(c), if the First Option is not exercised in full, the Other Holders shall thereupon have the irrevocable and exclusive option, but not the obligation (the “Second Option”), to purchase all, but not less than all, of the Subject Shares not subscribed for by the Company pursuant to Section 3.1(c) at the Closing referred to in Section 3.1(f) and for the purchase price and on the terms set forth in Section 3.1(g). The Second Option shall be exercised by the Other Holders by giving notice (the “Second Option Notice”) to the Holder Offeree and the Company, within ten (10) days following the date of the Other Holders Notice, that such Other Holders elect to exercise the Second Option. Any purchase of the Subject Shares by the Other Holders pursuant to this Section 3.1(d) shall be pro rata among the Other Holders electing to purchase such Subject Shares, according to such Other Holders’ respective beneficial ownership of Common Stock (on a fully diluted basis), unless such Other Holders shall otherwise agree. Upon exercise of the Second Option, the exercising Other Holders shall have the obligation to purchase the Subject Shares not subscribed for by the Company pursuant to Section 3.1(c) on and subject to the terms and conditions hereof. Failure by any Other Holder entitled to exercise the Second Option to give a Second Option Notice on or prior to the tenth (10th) day after the date of the Second Option Notice shall be deemed an election by it not to exercise the Second Option. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, in the event of a liquidation of any Holder entity and the distribution of Shares owned or controlled by any such entity to its current or former members or partners, such members or partners, and such liquidating entity, shall not be entitled to participate in the Second Option notwithstanding that such members or partners have become Holders under this Agreement pursuant to the requirements of Section 2.3.
               (e) Purchases of Less than All Subject Shares. Anything in Sections 3.1(a) and 3.1(d) to the contrary notwithstanding, the Company and the Other Holders having the First Option and the Second Option, respectively, may pursuant to the exercise of the First Option or the Second

- 14 -


 

Option purchase fewer than all of the Subject Shares, provided that the Company and such Persons in the aggregate elect to purchase all, but not less than all, of the Subject Shares, and it shall be a condition precedent to the obligation of the Company, the Other Holders exercising the Second Option and the Holder Offeree to purchase or sell, as applicable, any Subject Shares that all, but not less than all, of the Subject Shares have in the aggregate been elected to be purchased pursuant to the exercise of the First Option and the Second Option.
               (f) Closing; Right to Transfer. If any Subject Shares are purchased by the Company or the Other Holders pursuant to the First Option or the Second Option, respectively, then such purchases shall, unless the parties thereto otherwise agree, be completed at a closing to be held at the principal office of the Company at 10:00 a.m., local time, on the tenth (10th) Business Day following the exercise of the last to be exercised of the First Option or the Second Option, as the case may be. If neither the First Option nor the Second Option is exercised pursuant to this Section 3.1, the Holder Offeree shall be entitled to Transfer to the Third Party Offeror, at any time during the 120-day period following the latest date on which the Company and the Other Holders shall have elected not to purchase the Subject Shares pursuant to the First Option and the Second Option, respectively (or shall have failed to exercise the First Option or the Second Option, as the case may be, within the time periods set forth herein), all, but not less than all, of the Subject Shares for a purchase price that is no less than the Third Party Price and upon terms that, in the aggregate, are no less favorable than those stated in the Third Party Offer. If the Subject Shares are not purchased by the Third Party Offeror within such 120-day period, the restrictions provided for in this Article III shall again become effective, and no Transfer of such Subject Shares otherwise permitted by this Agreement may thereafter be made without again offering the same to the Company and the Other Holders in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Section 3.1.
               (g) Purchase Price. The purchase price for any Subject Shares sold pursuant to the First Option or the Second Option shall be the Third Party Price. The purchase and sale shall otherwise be on the applicable terms and conditions of the Third Party Offer. The full amount of the purchase price for any Subject Shares purchased pursuant to this Section 3.1 shall be paid in full in cash, by certified or official bank check or by wire transfer of immediately available funds, at the closing described in Section 3.1(f). In the event that the subject Third Party Offer provides for payment for any of the Subject Shares, in whole or in part, by means of any consideration other than cash, the Company and the Other Holders (as applicable) may purchase the Subject Shares pursuant to the First Option or Second Option, respectively, for such consideration, if reasonably available to the Company and Other Holders, or if not, for its cash equivalent. The cash equivalent of such consideration shall be fixed by a nationally recognized investment banking firm mutually selected by the Company and the Holder Offeree. In the event the Company and the Holder Offeree cannot select a mutually acceptable investment banking firm, each shall select an investment banking firm, which investment banking firm shall then select a third nationally recognized investment banking firm. The determination as to value made by the nationally recognized banking firm selected to make such determination shall be conclusive and binding on the parties.
          3.2 Participation in Approved Sale. No Holder will proceed with a transaction which, if consummated, would constitute a Sale of the Company under clause (b) or (c) of the definition of “Sale of the Company” in Section 1.2, without complying with the provisions of this Section 3.2 and Article IV.
               (a) If the Dragging Parties approve a Sale of the Company to Third Party Offeror, (an “Approved Sale”), then the Dragging Parties may require each of the other Holders to comply with the provisions of this Section 3.2 by notifying the Company and such other Holders in writing with the information set forth in the next sentence (the “Drag-Along Notice”). The Drag-Along

- 15 -


 

Notice shall be given at least thirty (30) days before the consummation of the proposed Approved Sale and shall set forth:
                    (i) the proposed amount and form of consideration and terms of payment offered by the Third Party Offeror, and any other terms pertaining to the Approved Sale;
                    (ii) a representation that the Third Party Offeror will acquire the Company promptly following the completion of the Issuer Reorganizations as provided in Article IV;
                    (iii) that the Third Party Offeror has been informed of the rights provided for in this Section 3.2 and has agreed to purchase the outstanding Shares in accordance with the terms hereof;
                    (iv) the Third Party Offeror’s name, address and telephone number; and
               (b) Each Holder, in such Holder’s capacity as a stockholder of the Company and not in such Holder’s capacity as a director if such Holder then serves on the Company’s board of directors, will vote for, consent to and raise no objections against such Approved Sale. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each Holder hereby agrees that, at any meeting or vote of the stockholders of the Company, however called, where an Approved Sale is being considered, it will vote all Securities which are beneficially owned by it in favor of such proposal for the Approved Sale and any actions required in furtherance thereof and, except as otherwise agreed to in writing in advance by the Dragging Parties, the Holder will not vote or take any action against or raise any objections to, the following actions (other than in furtherance of the contemplated Approved Sale): (i) any extraordinary corporate transaction, such as a merger, consolidation or other business combination involving the Company; (ii) a sale, lease or transfer of a material amount of assets of the Company, or a reorganization, recapitalization, dissolution or liquidation of the Company; (iii) any change in a majority of the Persons who constitute the Company’s board of directors; (iv) any amendment of the Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws; (v) any other change in the Company’s corporate structure or business (including the Issuer Reorganizations as provided by Article IV); or (vi) any other action which is intended, or could reasonably be expected, to impede, interfere with, delay, postpone, or adversely affect the contemplated Approved Sale. The provisions of this Section 3.2 shall be equally applicable to any action, which is set forth above, taken or proposed to be taken by the Company’s stockholders without a meeting, including any such action taken or proposed to be taken by written consent pursuant to Section 228 of the DGCL.
               (c) Each Holder agrees that upon the occurrence of an Approved Sale, the Holder, in such Holder’s capacity as a stockholder of LAI, agrees to take all action to effect the Issuer Reorganizations in accordance with Article IV, and covenants to vote for, consent to and raise no objections against the Issuer Reorganizations in connection with an Approved Sale and agrees to comply with all of the provisions of and perform the covenants set forth in, Article IV.
               (d) The obligations of the Holders under this Section 3.2 with respect to an Approved Sale of the Company are subject to the satisfaction of the following conditions:
                    (i) upon consummation of the Approved Sale, except as otherwise provided in clause (iii) below, all of the beneficial holders of Common Stock will receive the same form and amount of consideration per share of Common Stock, or if any holders are given an option as to the form and amount of consideration to be received, all holders will be given the same options;
                    (ii) upon the consummation of the Approved Sale, in the order of their respective preferences, all of the beneficial holders of Preferred Stock and all of the beneficial

- 16 -


 

holders of shares of preferred stock issued by any member of the Lululemon Group shall receive an amount no less than the preferential amount, if any, such holder may be entitled to receive, in order of their respective preferences; and
                    (iii) all holders of rights or options to acquire Shares which have vested prior to or will vest upon consummation of the Approved Sale will be given, subject to the absolute discretion of the Company’s board of directors of, either (A) an opportunity to exercise such rights or options prior to the consummation of the Approved Sale and participate in such sale as holders of Common Stock or (B) subject to the approval of the Company’s board of directors in its sole and absolute discretion, an opportunity to receive, upon the consummation of the Approved Sale, in exchange for such rights or options, consideration equal to the amount determined by multiplying (x) the consideration per share of Common Stock in connection with the Approved Sale if all such rights or options had been exercised prior to the Approved Sale less the exercise price (per share of Common Stock) of such rights or options by (y) the number of Shares represented by such rights or options;
               (e) If the Approved Sale is structured as a merger (including one where the Company is the surviving corporation) or consolidation, each Holder will waive any dissenter’s rights, appraisal rights or similar rights in connection with such merger or consolidation and will not otherwise exercise any such right. If such Approved Sale is structured as a Transfer of Capital Stock, each Holder will agree to sell all of its Securities on the terms and conditions of the Approved Sale; provided, that, if an Approved Sale involves a Transfer of less than all of the then outstanding Securities held by the Holders, each Holder will participate in such Transfer on a pro rata basis (based on the number of Common Derivative Securities held by each such Holder). A Transfer made pursuant to an Approved Sale shall not be subject to the right of first refusal set forth in Section 3.1.
               (f) In connection with an Approved Sale, notwithstanding the consummation of the Issuer Reorganizations, no Holder shall be required to undertake any agreement or obligation or to make any representation or warranty, except for the following: (i) each Holder shall be required to make customary representations and warranties with respect to such Holder and such Holder’s title to and ownership of Securities; (ii) each Holder shall be required to deliver such Holder’s Securities in connection with an Approved Sale and execute any documents reasonably necessary in furtherance thereof; and (iii) each Holder shall enter into and be bound by the pro rata indemnification described below. With respect to any obligation that relates solely to a particular Holder, such as indemnification with respect to representations or warranties given by a Holder regarding such Holder’s title to and ownership of Securities, only such Holder shall be liable. Each Holder shall be obligated to join on a pro rata basis (based on the cash consideration to be received by the Holder in the Approved Sale) in any indemnification that the Holders collectively are required to provide in connection with the Approved Sale. In no event shall a Holder be obligated in connection with any indemnification obligation relating to an Approved Sale in an amount in excess of the cash consideration received by such Holder in connection with the sale of Securities in the Approved Sale.
               (g) Each Holder will take all reasonable actions in connection with the consummation of an Approved Sale as requested by the Company or the Dragging Parties (which request shall be made of each Holder and which actions may include continuing arrangements with the stockholders of the Company similar to the terms of this Agreement).
               (h) If the Company or the Holders enter into any negotiation or transaction for which Rule 506 under the Securities Act (or any similar rule then in effect) may be available with respect to such negotiation or transaction (including a merger, consolidation, recapitalization, reorganization or similar transaction), each Holder will, at the request of the Company or the Dragging Parties, appoint a “purchaser representative” (as such term is defined in Rule 501 under the Securities

- 17 -


 

Act). The Company or the Dragging Parties may, in its discretion, designate such purchaser representative, in which case each Holder may, but is not obligated to, appoint such Person as the Holder’s purchaser representative. If a Holder does appoint such Person, the Company will pay the fees of such purchaser representative. If a Holder declines to appoint the purchaser representative designated by the Company or the Dragging Parties, such Holder will appoint another purchaser representative and will be responsible for all fees of such purchaser representative so appointed.
               (i) Subject to Section 3.2(h), the Holders will bear their pro rata share (based upon the sale proceeds to be received by the Holders from an Approved Sale) of the costs of any sale of Shares in an Approved Sale to the extent that such costs are incurred for the benefit of all Holders, and are not otherwise paid by the Company or the acquiring party. For purposes of this Section 3.2(i), costs incurred in exercising reasonable efforts to take all necessary action for the consummation of an Approved Sale and the Issuer Reorganizations shall be deemed to be for the benefit of all Holders. Costs incurred by Holders on their own behalf will not be considered costs of an Approved Sale.
          3.3 Tag-Along Rights. No Holder will proceed with a Transfer of Shares without complying with the provisions of this Section 3.3 and Article IV, or, in the case of a transaction which, if consummated, would constitute a Sale of the Company under clause (b) or (c) of the definition thereof, without complying with the provisions of Section 3.2. Any Holders participating in a voluntary Transfer of all or any portion of its Shares will be deemed, for purposes of this provision, to be a Tag-Along-Offeror required to comply with the provision of this Section 3.3 and Article IV. No Holder may voluntary Transfer any portion or all of its Shares unless, at the time of any such Transfer, there shall also be Transferred an equivalent percentage of (i) the LAI Shares held by such Holder, its Affiliates and its and their respective Permitted Transferees (and any successive Permitted Transferees), and (ii) the shares of each class or series of capital stock issued by any member of the Lululemon Group held by such Holder, its Affiliates and its and their respective Permitted Transferees (and any successive Permitted Transferees).
               (a) If a Holder or group of Holders (collectively, the “Tag-Along Offeror”) determines to Transfer (a “Tag-Along Offer”) Shares which, together with all prior Transfers of Shares held by the Tag-Along Offeror, would constitute more than 1% of the aggregate number of outstanding Shares entitled to vote on the date of such proposed Transfer (the “Tag-Along Shares”), the Tag-Along Offeror shall provide written notice (the “Tag-Along Notice”) of such Tag-Along Offer to the other Holders (each, a “Tag-Along Offeree”) in the manner set forth in this Section 3.3. The Tag-Along Notice shall include (i) the identity of the proposed transferee or transferees (the “Tag-Along Transferee”), (ii) the class or series of the Tag-Along Shares and the number of Shares for which the Tag-Along Offer is made, (iii) the price contained in the Tag-Along Offer for all of the Tag-Along Shares in the aggregate (the “Aggregate Consideration”) and on a per Share basis, (iv) the estimated expenses associated with the sale, (v) a description of all the other terms and conditions of the Tag-Along Offer (including, without limitation, the proposed closing date thereof, which shall not be less than thirty (30) Business Days following the date of the Tag-Along Notice) and, (vi) in the case of a Tag-Along Offer in which the consideration payable for Tag-Along Shares consists in part or in whole of consideration other than cash, a description of the non-cash component of the consideration, together with the Tag-Along Offeror’s reasonable estimate of the fair market value of such non-cash component.
               (b) In the event a majority of the Series A Holders elects to participate in a Tag Along Offer, each Holder agrees that upon the occurrence of such an election, the Holder, in such Holder’s capacity as a stockholder of LAI, agrees to take all action to effect the Issuer Reorganizations in accordance with Article IV, and covenants to will vote for, consent to and raise no objections against the Issuer Reorganizations in connection with the Series A Holders’ participation in a Tag Along Offer and will comply with all of the provisions of and perform the covenants set forth in, Article IV.

- 18 -


 

               (c) Any Tag-Along Offeree that does not agree to purchase Shares pursuant to Section 3.1(d) shall have the right and option, exercisable as set forth below, to accept the Tag-Along Offer for up to such number of Shares in respect of which the Tag-Along Offer is made (subject to Section 3.3(d)), as is determined in accordance with the provisions of this Section 3.3. The terms of any sale of such Shares by a Tag-Along Offeree pursuant to the exercise of its option under this Section 3.3 shall be the same terms as those for the sale of Shares by the Tag-Along Offeror as set forth in the Tag-Along Notice. Any general indemnity given by the sellers, applicable to liabilities not specific to a particular seller, to the purchasers in connection with such sale shall be apportioned among all the sellers according to the consideration to be received by each seller. If the Tag-Along Offerees desire to exercise such option, they shall each provide the Tag-Along Offeror with written irrevocable notice (the “Tag-Along Acceptance”) (specifying, subject to Section 3.3(d), the number of Tag-Along Shares as to which the Tag-Along Offeree is accepting the Tag-Along Offer), within seven (7) Business Days after the date on which the Tag-Along Notice is given (the “Tag-Along Notice Period”). If any Tag-Along Offerees so accept (in whole or in part) the Tag-Along Offer, the Tag-Along Offerees shall each, upon the earlier of (i) three (3) Business Days prior to the consummation of the sale or other disposition of the Tag-Along Shares pursuant to the Tag-Along Offer or (ii) ten (10) Business Days following the expiration of the Tag-Along Notice Period, deliver to the Company or to such other Person as may be agreed upon by the Tag-Along Offeror, to be held by such Person for sale or return upon the terms of this Section 3.3, the certificate or certificates representing the Shares to be sold or otherwise Transferred pursuant to such Tag-Along Offer by such Tag-Along Offerees, duly endorsed, together with a limited power of attorney authorizing the Tag-Along Offeror to sell or otherwise Transfer such Shares pursuant to the terms of the Tag-Along Offer.
               (d) The Tag-Along Offeree shall have the right to sell, pursuant to the Tag-Along Offer, the number of Shares (the “Tag-Along Offeree Shares”), equal to either: (i) the number of Shares equal to the product arrived at by multiplying (A) the total number of Shares to be sold pursuant to such Tag-Along Offer, as the case may be, by (B) a fraction, the numerator of which shall be the total number of Shares held by such Tag-Along Offeree, and the denominator of which shall be the total number of the then outstanding Shares the holders of which have rights under this Section 3.3 (which shall not include any series or class of Shares that have not been accepted by the Transferee pursuant to Section 3.3(a)), or (ii) such lesser number of Shares as designated by the Tag-Along Offeree. For purposes of clause (i) of the preceding sentence and the determination of the number of Tag-Along Offeree Shares applicable to a particular Holder, all shares of Preferred Stock shall be counted on an as-converted basis (assuming a hypothetical conversion of such Preferred Stock into shares of Common Stock at a conversion rate of 100 shares of Common Stock (as adjusted for any stock dividends, splits, combinations, recapitalizations and the like) for each share of Preferred Stock).
               (e) On the date on which the sale or other Transfer of the Tag-Along Shares pursuant to the Tag-Along Offer is consummated, the Tag-Along Offeror shall remit to each Tag-Along Offeree the total sales price of each of the Tag-Along Offeree Shares previously held by each such Tag-Along Offeree and sold or otherwise Transferred pursuant thereto (after deduction of the proportionate share of the expenses associated with such sale, based on the number of the Tag-Along Offeree Shares in relation to the number of Tag-Along Shares).
               (f) If at the termination of the Tag-Along Notice Period, any Tag-Along Offeree shall not have accepted the Tag-Along Offer, the Tag-Along Offeree will be deemed to have waived any and all of its rights under this Section 3.3 with respect to the sale or other Transfer of any Shares pursuant to such Tag-Along Offer as described in the Tag-Along Notice. The Tag-Along Offeror shall have 120 days (or such longer period not exceeding 180 days as may be necessary to comply with any applicable provisions of the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended) in which to sell the Tag-Along Shares and Tag-Along Offeree Shares not otherwise excluded pursuant to the

- 19 -


 

previous sentence, at a price not higher than that contained in the Tag-Along Notice and on terms not materially more favorable to the Tag-Along Offeror than were contained in the Tag-Along Notice. If, at the end of such 120-day period (or such longer period, as aforesaid), the Tag-Along Offeror has not completed the sale of all the Tag-Along Shares, the Tag-Along Offeror shall return to the Tag-Along Offeree all certificates representing the Tag-Along Shares which the Tag-Along Offeree delivered for sale or other Transfer pursuant to this Section 3.3 and this Section 3.3 shall again apply to offers and sales of Tag-Along Shares.
               (g) Notwithstanding anything contained in this Section 3.3 to the contrary, there shall be no liability on the part of the Tag-Along Offeror to any Person, if the sale of Tag-Along Shares pursuant to this Section 3.3 is not consummated for whatever reason. The Tag-Along Offeror shall have full and absolute discretion to effect or not to effect the transaction contemplated by the Tag-Along Offer pursuant to this Section 3.3, provided, however, that if it does elect to effect such a transaction, it must comply with the tag-along provisions contained herein.
ARTICLE IV

If (a) the Company is directed to effect an IPO in accordance with Section 5.1, (b) the Dragging Parties exercise their rights under Section 3.2, or (c) the Series A Holders exercise their rights under Section 3.3(b), the Company and the Holders shall cause the reorganization of the Company, LAI and USA (to the extent the Holder holds LAI Shares or stock in USA) in accordance with this Article IV. Such reorganization shall be accomplished in a manner whereby LAI and USA shall become a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. The transactions contemplated and described in Section 4.2, Section 4.3 and Section 4.4 are referred to herein collectively, as the “Issuer Reorganizations”.
          4.2 Canadian Reorganization. If the Issuer Reorganizations are effected pursuant to Section 4.1, to the extent the Holders or any of their respective Affiliates hold Shares, each such Holder agrees that it shall, and it that it shall cause its Affiliates to, cause a reorganization of LAI whereby LAI shall become a direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (the “Canadian Reorganization”).
               (a) In furtherance thereof, unless the Company’s board of directors directs that the Canadian Reorganization shall be carried out through a different set of steps as provided in paragraph (b) below, then to the extent a Holder or any of its Affiliates (collectively, the “LIPO (Canada) Owners”) holds shares of capital stock in LIPO (Canada), the LIPO (Canada) Owners agree that they shall contribute their shares in the capital of LIPO (Canada) to the Company in exchange for shares of Series B Preferred Stock having a stated value equal to the aggregate Reference Amount of the LAI Class B Shares plus accrued and unpaid dividends on the LAI Class B Shares held by LIPO (Canada). In addition, the LIPO (Canada) Owners shall cause the cancellation, with or without consideration, of all equity rights on the capital stock of LIPO (Canada) other than those contributed to the Company, including options and warrants to acquire shares of capital stock of LIPO (Canada) prior to the exchange; provided, however, that if the LIPO (Canada) Owners desire to grant the holders of such equity rights an interest in the Capital Stock as consideration for the cancellation of such equity rights, then any dilution of economic or voting interest in the Company resulting from the grant of such an interest in the Capital Stock shall be borne completely by the LIPO (Canada) Owners. In no event shall a grant of interest in Capital Stock as described in the immediately preceding sentence be borne by the Series A Holders or otherwise reduce their economic or voting interest in the Company.
               (b) If the Company’s board of directors directs that the Canadian Reorganization shall be carried out through a different set of steps than are set forth in paragraph (a)

- 20 -


 

above (not including an Alternative Reorganization), then the Canadian Reorganization shall be carried out in such alternative manner as the board of directors directs, provided that such alternative manner does not result in any Holder incurring any tax or other liability (in excess of any de minimis tax or other liability) not otherwise reimbursed in connection with the Canadian Reorganization. If the Company’s board of directors directs that an Alternative Reorganization shall be carried out in accordance with Section 4.5, the preceding sentence shall not apply.
               (c) The Company shall have the right to require that in connection with the Canadian Reorganization (i) each LAI Class C Share outstanding immediately before the Canadian Reorganization shall be exchanged for one-half of one share of Common Stock and (ii) each option for LAI Class C Shares outstanding immediately before the Canadian Reorganization shall be exchanged for options to acquire Common Stock. Except for appropriate adjustments which may be made to the exercise price of the new options and the number of shares of Common Stock which are the subject of the new options in order to preserve the intrinsic value of the LAI options being exchanged, the terms of the new options will be otherwise similar of the terms of the options being exchanged with the intent that the economic interest of the option holders will be preserved to the greatest extent practicable.
               (d) If the Canadian Reorganization is effected in the manner contemplated in Section 4.2(a), the Company will issue to the LIPO (Canada) Owners in exchange for their shares in the capital of LIPO (Canada) shares of Series B Preferred Stock having a stated value equal to the Reference Amount of the Class B Shares multiplied by the number of LAI Class B Shares held by LIPO (Canada) plus accrued and unpaid dividends on such Class B Shares.
          4.3 USA Reorganization. If the Issuer Reorganizations are effected pursuant to Section 4.1, to the extent the Holders or any of their respective Affiliates hold shares of non-participating preferred stock in USA (“Non-Participating Preferred Stock”), each such Holder who is an Advent Holder or Highland Holder agrees sell its shares of Non-Participating Preferred Stock to the Company in exchange for shares of Series A Preferred Stock having a stated value equal to the stated value of the Non-Participating Preferred Stock being sold and each such Holder who is an Affiliate of DW agrees sell its shares of Non-Participating Preferred Stock to the Company in exchange for shares of Series B Preferred Stock having a stated value equal to the stated value of the Non-Participating Preferred Stock being sold.
          4.4 Company Reorganization.
               (a) If the Issuer Reorganizations are effected pursuant to Section 4.1, the Company shall recapitalize, reclassify and/or exchange its Capital Stock in a manner such that would result in:
                    (i) the shares of Series A Preferred Stock outstanding immediately before the Issuer Reorganization being recapitalized or reclassified in a manner such that the resulting number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock outstanding after the recapitalization or reclassification will have an aggregate stated value equal to the Series A Stated Value plus all accrued and unpaid dividends as of the date of the recapitalization or reclassification of the Series A Preferred Stock pursuant to this Section 4.4; and
                    (ii) the shares of Series TS Preferred Stock outstanding immediately before the Issuer Reorganization being exchanged for or recapitalized or reclassified into a number of shares of Series B Preferred Stock having an aggregate value equal to the Series TS Stated Value plus all accrued an unpaid dividends as of the date of the exchange, recapitalization or reclassification pursuant to this Section 4.4.

- 21 -


 

               (b) Each Holder, in such Holder’s capacity as a stockholder of the Company and not in such Holder’s capacity as a director if such Holder then serves on the Company’s board of directors, will vote for, consent, approve and raise no objection to, the recapitalization, reclassification, and/or exchange of Capital Stock as provided in this Section 4.4.
          4.5 Leveraged Dividend. If the Company’s board of directors desires to effect a leveraged dividend of the Lululemon Group (i.e. borrowing funds for the purpose of distributing such funds to shareholders) in the manner contemplated in Section 8.1(d), the Company and the Holders will negotiate in good faith to determine a corporate restructuring which will, to the extent practicable, maximize tax efficiency of the payment of the leveraged dividend to all parties. In connection with any such leveraged dividend:
               (a) The LIPO (Canada) Owners may contribute all their shares of LIPO (Canada) to the Company as contemplated in the Canadian Reorganization, but except to the extent provided under Section (c), the LIPO (Canada) Owners will not be required to contribute all their shares of LIPO (Canada) to the Company as contemplated in the Canadian Reorganization.
               (b) At the request of the Company’s board of directors, the LIPO (Canada) Owners will cause Class B Shares of LAI to be transferred directly or indirectly to the Company or to LCHI on commercially reasonable terms, to the extent (but unless otherwise agreed by them only to the extent) necessary to minimize tax payable by the other Holders on the dividend.
               (c) In the event that the Company’s board of directors determines, after consultation with the Company’s tax advisors, that it is more likely than not that after the transfer of shares referred to in Section 4.5(b) there will be a corporate level tax payable by LCHI on the leveraged dividend, the Company’s board of directors and the Holders will negotiate in good faith to determine a method of effectuating the leveraged dividend (including any corporate reorganization(s), share transfers, or other transactions, in each case on commercially reasonable terms) that would not result in a corporate level tax payable by LCHI (any such method meeting such qualifications being herein referred to as an “Alternative Reorganization”). If the Company’s board of directors determines that a particular Alternative Reorganization should be carried out, then to the extent that the Holders or any of their respective Affiliates hold Shares, each such Holder agrees that it shall, and it that it shall cause its Affiliates to, take such actions as shall be necessary, in the reasonable discretion of the Company’s board of directors, to cause such Alternative Reorganization to be carried out. In selecting an Alternative Reorganization to be carried out, the Company’s board of directors shall take into account the tax efficiency of any proposed Alternative Reorganization on the LIPO (Canada) Owners in accordance with Section 12.1, and if more than one Alternative Reorganization is available, the board of directors shall select the Alternative Transaction that is most tax-efficient tax efficient for the LIPO (Canada) Owners, assuming that such Alternative Transaction is not materially less tax-efficient for the Company, LCHI or the Holders other than the LIPO (Canada) Owners. If no Alternative Reorganization can be structured that is reasonably determined by the participants to provide more favorable tax treatment to the LIPO (Canada) Owners than the Canadian Reorganization, then the Company’s board of directors may determine to carry out a Alternative Reorganization on the same terms as the Canadian Reorganization as set forth under Section 4.2; provided, however, that no Alternative Reorganization shall be approved by the Company’s board of directors unless the Company’s board of directors determines, after consultation with the Company’s tax advisors, that it is more likely than not that the transfer of shares referred to in Section 4.5(b) will result in a corporate level tax payable by LCHI.
Any transaction described in paragraphs (a), (b) or (c) of this Section 4.5 is herein referred to as a “Leveraged Dividend Reorganization.”

               (a) Each Holder shall, and shall (to the extent it has the power to) cause its Affiliates and equity holders to, take such actions as may be reasonably requested by the boards of directors of the Company, LAI and USA to effect the Issuer Reorganizations and/or a Leveraged Dividend Reorganization, including approving each transaction taken in furtherance of consummating the Issuer Reorganizations and/or a Leveraged Dividend Reorganization, as applicable. Each Holder agrees that it shall not, and it shall (to the extent it has the power to) cause its Affiliates and equity holders not to exercise any dissenter’s right or right of appraisal in connection with the Issuer Reorganizations or a Leveraged Dividend Reorganization.
     (a) Each Special Purpose Party agrees to be bound by the provisions of this Article IV and agrees to effect the Issuer Reorganizations and/or a Leveraged Dividend Reorganization as and when such reorganizations shall be required under this Agreement.

Each Special Purpose Party agrees that it shall not, and it shall (to the extent it has the power to) cause its Affiliates and equity holders not to exercise any dissenter’s right or right of appraisal in connection with the Issuer Reorganizations.

The Company may impose stop-transfer instructions with respect to Securities subject to the foregoing restrictions until the end of such Market Standoff Period.

               (b) In addition, if requested by any managing underwriter or book runner of any such offering (the “Underwriter”), each Holder will execute and deliver such documents, agreements and instruments as the Underwriter shall reasonably require to enable the Underwriter to obtain the benefit of the Holdback during the Market Standoff Period so long as all Holders owning at least five percent (5%) of the stock of the Company and all members of the Company’s board of directors enter into substantially the same documents, agreements and instruments in favor of the Underwriter.
               (c) In connection with the foregoing, each Holder hereby appoints Advent as its attorney-in-fact, with full power of substitution, to execute and deliver all documents, agreements and instruments to be executed and delivered by such Holder, and to take all actions to be taken by such Holder, in each case in connection with effecting any Holdback.
               (d) The provisions of this Section 5.3 shall survive the termination of this Agreement as a result of a Qualified IPO.

PREEMPTIVE RIGHTS
          6.1 Preemptive Rights. In the event that the Company proposes to issue and sell any New Securities, each Series A Holder, Series TS Holder and Series B Holder (collectively, the “Preemptive Rights Holders”) shall have the right, prior to the issue of such New Securities by the Company, to purchase a percentage of such New Securities equal to its beneficial ownership interest in the outstanding shares of Preferred Stock (as adjusted for any stock dividends, splits, combinations, recapitalizations and the like)) (the “Pro Rata Amount”) at the proposed issuance price, which right shall be exercisable by written notice to the Company (a “Purchaser Notice”) given within ten (10) days after receipt by each Preemptive Rights Holder of written notice of such proposed issuance. If any such party shall fail to respond to the Company within the ten (10) day notice period, such failure shall be regarded as a rejection of its right to participate in the purchase of the shares. Each Preemptive Rights Holder may also indicate in its Purchaser Notice, if it so elects, its desire to participate in the purchase of the shares in excess of its Pro Rata Amount. If any such party declines to purchase its Pro Rata Amount of the New Securities (such Pro Rata Amount being hereinafter called the “Excess Shares”), then the other such party or parties who have indicated in their or its Purchaser Notice a desire to participate in the purchase of such Excess Shares shall be deemed to have agreed to purchase the Excess Shares in proportion to its respective Pro Rata Amounts. Unless such Preemptive Rights Holders elect to purchase all of the New Securities, the Company may issue all (not less than all) of the New Securities which such parties have not elected to purchase, at the price specified by the Company in its notice to such parties, provided that such issuance is bona fide and made within one hundred twenty (120) days after the date of such notice. The rights under this Section 6.1 shall not apply to a Qualified IPO, and such rights shall terminate immediately prior to the consummation of such Qualified IPO.

At such closing, the Holders participating in the purchase shall deliver, in cash or by official bank check or wire transfer, payment in full for such shares and all parties to the transaction shall execute such additional documents as are otherwise appropriate.

          10.2 Regulation D Legend. Each Holder who is a U.S. Person, consents to the placement of a legend on any certificate representing the Shares held by it. The legend shall read as follows:
THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “SECURITIES ACT”), OR ANY STATE SECURITIES OR “BLUE SKY” LAWS AND NEITHER SUCH SECURITIES NOR ANY INTEREST THEREIN MAY BE OFFERED, SOLD, PLEDGED, ASSIGNED OR OTHERWISE TRANSFERRED UNLESS (1) A REGISTRATION STATEMENT WITH RESPECT THERETO IS EFFECTIVE UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT AND ANY APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES OR “BLUE SKY” LAWS, OR (2) THE COMPANY RECEIVES AN OPINION OF COUNSEL TO THE HOLDER OF SUCH SECURITIES, WHICH COUNSEL AND OPINION ARE REASONABLY SATISFACTORY TO COUNSEL TO THE COMPANY, THAT SUCH SECURITIES MAY BE OFFERED, SOLD, PLEDGED, ASSIGNED OR TRANSFERRED IN THE MANNER CONTEMPLATED WITHOUT AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OR APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES OR “BLUE SKY” LAWS.”
ARTICLE XI
TERMINATION
          11.1 Termination. This Agreement shall automatically terminate and be of no further force and effect upon the occurrence of any of the following events:
               (a) the consummation of a Qualified IPO (provided that, in such event, the provisions of Section 5.3 shall also survive in accordance with their respective terms any termination as a result thereof);
               (b) the consummation of a Sale of the Company in compliance with this Agreement; or
               (c) upon the written consent of (i) the Company, (ii) the holders of 66 2/3 % of the outstanding Series A Preferred Stock, and (iii) the holders of 66 2/3% of the outstanding Series B Preferred Stock and Series TS Preferred Stock, with the Series B Holders and Series TS Holders voting together as a single voting group.
ARTICLE XII
MISCELLANEOUS
          12.1 Tax Considerations. The Holders acknowledge that the tax status and tax considerations of each of the Holders and its Affiliates are different. While the Reorganizations have been structured to attempt to address the tax considerations of the Holders, and to the extent possible, maximize tax efficiency, the circumstances of the Company and the Holders and applicable tax law may change such that the Reorganizations as contemplated herein may not achieve the goal of tax efficiency. Prior to effecting the Reorganizations, an IPO, a Sale of the Company or a leveraged dividend transaction, the Company and the Holders will consider the tax consequences to all participants and, should the circumstances have materially changed the tax consequences to the Holders or the Company or if the transaction as structured will have a material adverse effect on a Holder or the Company, negotiate in

- 30 -


 

good faith a transaction structure which attempts to address the objectives of the Company and the Holders for maximum tax efficiency. In the circumstances of the Canadian Reorganization prior to an IPO, or a Sale of the Company for non-cash securities, the parties acknowledge that LIPO (Canada) will incur tax on the Canadian Reorganization, but will not immediately receive cash with which to pay the tax. In those circumstances, the Company and the Holders will use commercially reasonable efforts to address the issue, including, without limitation, supporting: (a) a request for a registration of the securities to be received by LIPO (Canada) on the Canadian Reorganization or of the securities of the purchaser to be received by LIPO (Canada) on a Sale of the Company; and (b) a request for a reduced lock-up period which will expire prior to the time that such tax is due to be paid.
          12.2 Access to Information. Each Holder (and its respective agents, representatives and advisors) shall, upon written notice to the Company, be permitted all reasonable access, on an ongoing basis, to the books and records of the Company in accordance with (and subject to) the policies developed therefore by the Company’s board of directors in accordance with corporate law of the State of Nevada. The Holder requesting such access, and the Company which is the subject of the request for access, shall each bear their respective costs and expenses in respect of such access.
          12.3 Confidentiality. Each Holder hereby agrees that any information supplied or made available to it pursuant to this Agreement and any other confidential or proprietary information relating to the Company in its possession, including accounting information, commercial data and information relating to intellectual property of the Company (collectively, the “Information”), will be kept confidential and shall not, without the prior written consent of the Company, be disclosed by such Holder or its Affiliates, directors, officers, partners, employees, agents, advisors and other representatives (collectively, the “Representatives”), in any manner whatsoever, in whole or in part, and shall not be used by such Holder or its Representatives other than in connection with such Holder’s evaluation of its investment in the Company, provided, however, that such Holder or any of its Representatives may make such disclosure to the extent that (a) the Information being disclosed is otherwise generally available to the public other than as a result of a disclosure by any Holder or its Representatives, (b) such disclosure is required by any governmental body, agency, official or authority having jurisdiction over such Holder, or (c) such disclosure, based upon the advice of legal counsel of such Holder or Representative, is otherwise required by law or statute. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each Advent Holder and Highland Holder may disclose Information to its Representatives and its limited partners so long as such Information is identified as confidential to such Representatives and limited partners. Each such Holder shall be responsible for any breach of this Section 12.3 by its Representatives. If a Holder or any of its Representatives is required by subpoena or legal process to disclose any of the Information, to the extent legally permitted, such Holder will notify the Company promptly in writing so that the Company may seek an appropriate protective order or other appropriate remedy (and if the Company seeks such an order, such Holder will provide such cooperation as the Company shall reasonably request at the Company’s sole cost and expense). If, in the absence of a protective order or other remedy, such Holder or any of its Representatives are nonetheless legally compelled to disclose such Information, such Holder or its Representatives, as the case may be, will furnish only that portion of the Information which they are advised by counsel is legally required and will give the Company prior written notice (unless prohibited by law) of the Information to be disclosed as far in advance as reasonably practicable and exercise commercially reasonable efforts to obtain confidential treatment for the Information. Each Holder agrees to promptly return all Information to the Company or to destroy such Information promptly after it sells, disposes of or otherwise Transfers all of its Shares to Persons who are not Affiliates of such Holder.
          12.4 Additional Holders. If additional equity securities of the Company are issued to any Person, the Company may, but shall not be obligated to, permit such Person to become a party to this Agreement and succeed to all of the rights and obligations of a Holder, as applicable under this

- 31 -


 

Agreement by obtaining an executed counterpart signature page to this Agreement, and, upon such execution, such Person shall for all purposes be a “party” to this Agreement.
          12.5 Amendments.
               (a) This Agreement may not be amended, supplemented or discharged, and no provision hereof may be modified or waived, except expressly by an instrument in writing signed by (a) the Company, (b) the holders of 66 2/3 % of the outstanding Series A Preferred Stock, and (c) the holders of 66 2/3% of the outstanding Series B Preferred Stock and Series TS Preferred Stock, with the Series B Holders and Series TS Holders voting together as a single voting group; provided however, that any amendment, modification or waiver that treats any Holder of a class or series of stock (the “Adversely Affected Holder”) in a manner which is disproportionate and adverse relative to its treatment of the other Holders of such class or series of stock shall require the consent of the Adversely Affected Holder. No waiver of any provision hereof by any party shall be deemed a waiver by any other party nor shall any such waiver by any party be deemed a continuing waiver of any matter by such party. No amendment, modification, supplement, discharge or waiver hereof or hereunder shall require the consent of any Person not a party to this Agreement.
               (b) Notwithstanding the Section 12.5(a), for so long as the Advent Holders are entitled to a seat on the Company’s board of directors, Sections 7.1, 7.2 and 7.5 can not be amended, modified or waived in a manner that adversely affects the rights of the Advent Holders, except by an instrument in writing signed by the Advent Holders holding a majority of the Preferred Stock then held by all Advent Holders.
               (c) Notwithstanding the Section 12.5(a), for so long as the Highland Holders are entitled to a seat on the Company’s board of directors, Sections 7.1, 7.3 and 7.5 can not be amended, modified or waived in a manner that adversely affects the rights of the Highland Holders, except by an instrument in writing signed by the Highland Holders holding a majority of the Preferred Stock then held by all Highland Holders.
          12.6 Specific Performance. Each of the parties acknowledges that it will be impossible to measure in money the damage to the Company, the Holders or any of them, if it or its transferee fails to comply with any of the restrictions or obligations imposed by this Agreement, that every such restriction and obligation is material, and that in the event of any such failure, the Company or other Holders or any of them will not have an adequate remedy at law or in damages. Therefore, each party consents to the issuance of an injunction or the enforcement of other equitable remedies against it at the suit of an aggrieved party without bond or other security, to compel performance of all of the terms hereof, and waives any defenses thereto, including, without limitation, the defenses of (a) failure of consideration, (b) breach of any other provision of this Agreement and (c) availability of relief in damages.
          12.7 Notices. All notices or other communications which are required or permitted hereunder shall be in writing and sufficient if delivered by hand, by facsimile transmission, by registered or certified mail, postage pre-paid, or by courier or overnight carrier, to the Persons at the addresses set forth in Schedule A in the case of a Holder and to the address set forth below in the case of the Company (or at such other address as may be provided hereunder), and shall be deemed to have been delivered (a) on the date of delivery if delivered personally, or by telecopy or facsimile, upon confirmation of receipt, (b) on the first Business Day following the date of dispatch if delivered by a recognized next-day courier service, or (c) on the fifth Business Day following the date of mailing if delivered by registered or certified mail return receipt requested, postage prepaid:
