3.4           Representations and Warranties of Purchaser. Purchaser hereby represents and warrants as of the date hereof to the Company as follows:

 

(a)           Organization; Authority. Purchaser is an entity duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the jurisdiction of its organization with full right, corporate or partnership power and authority to enter into and to consummate the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents and otherwise to carry out its obligations hereunder and thereunder. The execution and delivery of the Transaction Documents and performance by Purchaser of the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate or similar action on the part of Purchaser. Each Transaction Document to which it is a party has been duly executed by Purchaser, and when delivered by Purchaser in accordance with the terms hereof, will constitute the valid and legally binding obligation of Purchaser, enforceable against it in accordance with its terms, except (i) as limited by general equitable principles and applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium and other laws of general application affecting enforcement of creditors’ rights generally, (ii) as limited by laws relating to the availability of specific performance, injunctive relief or other equitable remedies and (iii) insofar as indemnification and contribution provisions may be limited by applicable law.

 

(b)           Purchaser Status. At the time Purchaser was offered to purchase the Securities, it was, and as of the date hereof it is, and on each Closing Date and other date on which it converts any of the Notes upon the terms and conditions provided therein, it will be an “accredited investor” as defined in Rule 501(a)(1), (a)(2), (a)(3), (a)(7) or (a)(8) under the Securities Act.

 

(c)           Securities Act; No General Solicitation. Purchaser, either alone or together with its representatives, has such knowledge, sophistication and experience in business and financial matters so as to be capable of evaluating the merits and risks of the purchase of the Securities, and has so evaluated the merits and risks of such purchase. Purchaser: (i) is able to bear the economic risk of an investment in the Securities for an indefinite period of time and, at the present time, is able to afford a complete loss of such investment; (ii) is acquiring the Securities for its own account, and not as nominee or agent; and (iii) is acquiring the Securities for the purpose of investment and not with a view to distribution or resale thereof. Purchaser does not have any agreement or understanding, directly or indirectly, with any Person to distribute any of the Securities. The foregoing, however, does not limit or modify the representations and warranties of the Company in Article III of this Agreement or the right of Purchaser to rely on such representations and warranties.

 

(d)           Legend. Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that the issuance of the Securities to Purchaser has not been registered under the Securities Act or any applicable state securities laws, and may not be sold, transferred or assigned unless subsequently registered under the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws, or unless an exemption from such registration is available, and that the Notes and the certificates issued to Purchaser representing the shares of Senior Preferred and Common Stock shall be stamped or otherwise imprinted with a legend to that effect.

 

24
 

 

(e)           No Conflicts. The execution, delivery and performance by the Purchaser of this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents and the consummation by it of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby do not and will not (i) conflict with or violate any provision of the Purchaser’s certificate of incorporation, bylaws or other organizational or charter documents, or (ii) conflict with or result in a violation of any law, rule, regulation, order, judgment, injunction, decree or other restriction of any court or governmental authority to which the Purchaser is subject (including federal and state securities laws and regulations), or by which any property or asset of the Purchaser is bound or affected.

 

(f)           No Short Sales. Other than consummating the transactions contemplated under this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents, the Purchaser has not, nor has any Person acting on behalf of or pursuant to any understanding with the Purchaser, directly or indirectly executed any purchases or sales, including Short Sales, of the securities of the Company during the period commencing as of the time that the Purchaser first became aware of the proposed transactions contemplated hereunder and ending immediately prior to the execution hereof. Other than to other Persons party to this Agreement and its Affiliates and their respective investment advisors, agents, counsel and other advisors, the Purchaser has maintained the confidentiality of all disclosures made to it in connection with this transaction (including the existence and terms of this transaction).

 

(g)           General Solicitation. Purchaser is not purchasing the Securities as a result of any advertisement, article, notice or other communication regarding the Company or the Securities published in any newspaper, magazine or similar media or broadcast over television or radio or presented at any seminar.

 

(h)           Information. The Company has, prior to the date hereof, provided the Purchaser with information regarding the business, operations and financial condition of the Company, and has, prior to such date, granted to Purchaser the opportunity to ask questions of and receive satisfactory answers from representatives of the Company, its officers, directors, employees and agents concerning the Company and materials relating to the terms and conditions of the purchase and sale of the Securities hereunder, and based thereon believes it can make an informed decision with respect to its investment in the Securities. Neither such information nor any other investigation conducted by Purchaser or its representatives shall modify, amend or otherwise affect Purchaser’s right to rely on the Company’s representations and warranties contained in this Agreement.

 

(i)           Independent Investment Decision. Purchaser has independently evaluated the merits of its decision to purchase the Securities pursuant to this Agreement, such decision has been independently made by Purchaser and Purchaser confirms that it has relied solely on the advice of its own business and/or legal counsel in making such decision.

 

(j)           Reliance on Exemptions. Purchaser understands that the Securities are being offered and sold to it in reliance upon specific exemptions from the registration requirements of federal and state securities laws and that the Company is relying upon the truth and accuracy of the representations and warranties of Purchaser set forth herein in order to determine the availability of such exemptions and the eligibility of Purchaser to acquire the Securities.

 

(k)           Stock Ownership. Purchaser is not a beneficial owner, directly or indirectly, of 10 percent or more of the voting power of the outstanding voting shares of the Company. Purchaser is not an affiliate or associate of the Company and, at any time within 2 years immediately before the date hereof, was not the beneficial owner, directly or indirectly, of 10 percent or more of the voting power of the then outstanding shares of the Company.

The Company shall comply with Section 14(a) of the Exchange Act and the rules promulgated thereunder in relation to the Proxy Statement and any form of proxy to be sent to the stockholders of the Company in connection with the Stockholders Meeting, and the Proxy Statement shall not, on the date that the Proxy Statement (or any amendment thereof or supplement thereto) is first mailed to the Company’s stockholders or at the time of the Stockholders Meeting, contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact necessary in order to make the statements made therein not false or misleading, or omit to state any material fact necessary to correct any statement in any earlier communication with respect to the solicitation of proxies or the Stockholders Meeting which has become false or misleading.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, however, if at any time prior to obtaining stockholder approval of the Proxy Proposals, the Board has concluded in good faith that (i) due to its receipt of a proposal for an Alternative Transaction that the failure of the Board to change, qualify, withhold or withdraw the Board Recommendation would be inconsistent with the directors’ exercise of their fiduciary duties to the Company’s stockholders under applicable law, or (ii) in the absence of a proposal for an Alternative Transaction, the failure of the Board to take such action would be inconsistent with the directors’ exercise of their fiduciary duties to the Company’s stockholders under applicable law, the Board may (1) change, qualify, withhold or withdraw the Board Recommendation and/or (2) in the case of clause (i) of this sentence, terminate this Agreement to enter into a binding written agreement with respect to such Alternative Transaction.

(b)          to the extent the Company has knowledge of such notice or communication or the Purchaser has knowledge of such notice or communication, as the case may be, of any written communication from any Person alleging that the consent of such Person is or may be required in connection with the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents;

The parties agree that monetary damages may not be adequate compensation for any loss incurred by reason of any breach of obligations contained in the Transaction Documents and hereby agrees to waive and not to assert in any action for specific performance of any such obligation the defense that a remedy at law would be adequate.

EXHIBIT A

 

Summary of Terms of Senior Preferred

  

Issuer:   Skinny Nutritional Corp. (the “Company”)
     
Security:   Units consisting of (i) shares of Senior Preferred and (ii) shares of Common Stock.
     
Ranking:   The Senior Preferred will, with respect to dividend rights and rights on liquidation and redemption, rank senior to any other preferred stock and the Common Stock.
     
Conversion:   The Senior Preferred shall not be convertible.
     
Purchase Price; Allocation   Nine Million dollars ($9,000,000) less (i) the principal amount of, and accrued interest on, the outstanding Bridge Notes and (ii) the purchase price of any Units purchased at the Second Closing. The gross proceeds of the sale of the Units will be allocated to the shares of Senior Preferred and the shares of Common Stock in a manner acceptable to the Purchaser. For purposes hereof, the “Original Issue Price” of the Senior Preferred shall be equal to quotient determined by dividing (i) the amount of the aggregate purchase price of the Units allocated to the Senior Preferred by (ii) the number of shares of Senior Preferred issued.
     
Use of Proceeds:   Working capital and general corporate purposes
     
Liquidation Preference:   Upon any liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company, whether voluntary or involuntary (a “Liquidation Event”), the holders of Senior Preferred shall be entitled to receive, on a preferred basis prior and in preference to any distribution to the holders of any Common Stock or any preferred stock or other equity security of the Company, an amount per share equal to the Original Issue Price plus accrued and unpaid dividends (the “Liquidation Preference”).
     
Deemed Liquidation Event:   Unless the holders of a majority of the shares of Senior Preferred determine otherwise, a sale or exclusive lease of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company or an acquisition of the Company by another person or entity by means of any transaction or series of transactions (including any reorganization, merger, consolidation or share transfer) where the stockholders of the Company immediately preceding such transaction own, following such transaction, less than a majority of the voting securities of the Company, shall be deemed a Liquidation Event (a “Deemed Liquidation Event”).

 

 
 

 

   

In the event of a Liquidation Event, if any portion of the consideration payable to the Company or its stockholders is placed into escrow, and/or is payable to the Company or its stockholders subject to contingencies, the merger agreement, sale agreement, or other agreement governing such Liquidation Event shall provide that (a) the portion of such consideration that is not placed into escrow and not subject to any contingencies (the "Initial Consideration") shall be allocated among the holders of capital stock of the Company in accordance with the respective liquidation preferences as if the Initial Consideration were the only consideration payable in connection with such Liquidation Event and (b) any additional consideration which becomes payable to the Company or its stockholders upon release from escrow or satisfaction of contingencies shall be allocated among the holders of capital stock of the Company in accordance with the respective liquidation preferences after taking into account the previous payment of the Initial Consideration as part of the same transaction. 

     
Redemption:   At the election of the holders of at least a majority of the Senior Preferred made any time after the fifth anniversary of the Third Closing, the Company shall redeem the outstanding Senior Preferred from funds legally available therefor within ninety (90) days following the date the Company receives the redemption request from the holders of the Senior Preferred.  Such redemption shall be at a purchase price per share equal to the Original Issue Price (as adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, combinations and the like) plus accrued but unpaid dividends.  In the event that the Senior Preferred is not redeemed in whole within the period set forth above for any reason (including the unavailability of funds legally available therefor), then the holders of the Senior Preferred will be entitled to (i) elect a majority of the Board (to the extent that designees of the holders of the Senior Preferred do not already constitute a majority of the Board) and/or (ii) cause the Company to retain an independent investment banking firm of national or regional standing to explore strategic alternatives for the Company, including a sale of the Company or all or certain of its assets.

Common Stock:   The number of shares of Common Stock which shall be issued as part of the Units (including Units sold to the Purchaser at the Second Closing) shall be that number which comprises 65% of the fully diluted shares of Common Stock of the Company (calculated on the treasury method and determined as of the date of the Third Closing, including the shares reserved for issuance under the New Equity Plan and all other contingent issuances of Common Stock).
     
Dividends:   The Senior Preferred will carry a cash dividend of 15% of the Original Issue Price (as adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, combinations and the like) per annum.  Dividends will be cumulative, shall compound semi-annually and shall be payable on the earliest of (i) the closing of a Qualified Public Offering, (ii) a Liquidation Event, including the closing of a Deemed Liquidation Event, (iii) the redemption of the Senior Preferred or (iv) semi-annually to the extent that funds are legally available therefor as determined by the Board in good faith.  No dividends may be paid on the Common Stock or any series of preferred stock ranking junior to or pari passu with the Senior Preferred unless all accrued but unpaid dividends on the Senior Preferred have been paid in full.
     
Voting Rights:   The Senior Preferred shall have no voting rights except as specifically provided herein or as otherwise required by law.
     
Board of Directors:   The Board will initially consist of seven (7) members. The holders of the Senior Preferred, voting separately as a class, will be entitled to elect four (4) members of the Board (the “Preferred Directors”). The holders of the Senior Preferred and the Common Stock, voting together as a single class, will be entitled to elect three (3) members of the Board, one (1) of whom shall be the CEO and two (2) of whom shall be non-employee members recommended by the nominating committee and acceptable to a majority of the Preferred Directors. The bylaws will provide, in addition to any provisions required by law, that any three (3) directors or holders of at least a majority of the outstanding shares of Senior Preferred may call a meeting of the Board. The Preferred Directors shall have the right to designate the Company’s chairman (to be Marc Cummins, Bill Apfelbaum or someone reasonably acceptable to the CEO). In connection with the investment by the Purchaser, the Company will create compensation, audit and nominating committees of the Board and Preferred Directors shall constitute a majority of the members of all Board committees and a Preferred Director shall be designated as the chairman of each committee. In the event of certain material events of non-compliance under the Senior Preferred (including a failure to redeem the Senior Preferred), the holders of the Senior Preferred will have the right to designate a majority of the members of the Board.
