Dear Sirs:

 

SFX Entertainment, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), is hereby privately offering (this “Offering”) 2,000,000 shares (the “Shares”) of common stock, $0.001 par value per share, of the Company (the “Common Stock”) at an aggregate purchase price of $10,000,000 (the “Purchase Price”) to the undersigned, in reliance on the exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), provided by Rule 506 of Regulation D under the Securities Act.

 

1.                                      Subscription. Subject to the terms and conditions of this subscription agreement (“Subscription Agreement”), the undersigned (“Purchaser”) hereby agrees to be legally bound to purchase the Shares subscribed for hereunder, and promptly upon acceptance by the Company, Purchaser shall fulfill its subscription by paying the Purchase Price by wire transfer in immediately available funds to an account designated by the Company as consideration for the issuance by the Company of the Shares (the “Closing”).  Original certificates reflecting the Shares shall be provided to Purchaser following the Closing.

 

2.                                      Conditions to Subscription.  This subscription shall be deemed to be accepted by the Company only when it is signed by the Company.  Subscriber has executed and delivered this Subscription Agreement and hereby agrees to tender the Purchase Price at Closing in accordance with the terms hereof.  If this subscription is rejected by the Company in its sole and absolute discretion or because the Company terminates or cancels the Offering, this Subscription Agreement shall thereafter be of no further force or effect.

 

3.                                      Representations and Warranties of Purchaser. Purchaser hereby represents and warrants to, and agrees with, the Company as of the date Purchaser executes this Subscription Agreement, as follows:

 

(a)                                 (i)                                     Purchaser has received and has read and fully understands this Subscription Agreement.

 

(ii)                                  Purchaser acknowledges and understands that an investment in the Company will involve substantial risks.  Purchaser or its advisor(s) have had a reasonable opportunity to ask questions of and receive answers from a person or persons acting on behalf of the Company concerning the Company and the Offering and all such questions have been answered to the full satisfaction of Purchaser.

 

(iii)                               No oral or written representations have been made other than as stated in this Subscription Agreement.

 

(iv)                              Purchaser has such knowledge and experience in financial, tax and business matters so as to enable it to utilize the information made available to it in connection with the Offering, to evaluate the merits and risks of an investment in the Shares and to make an informed decision with respect thereto; Purchaser acknowledges that there is a significant risk of loss of all or a portion of Purchaser’s investment in the Shares.

 

(v)                                 Purchaser is not subscribing for the Shares pursuant to a general solicitation or general advertisement by the Company.

 



 

(vi)                              The Shares are “restricted securities” as defined in Rule 144 under the Securities Act and have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws.  The Shares are highly illiquid.  Until the Registration Statement (as hereinafter defined) is declared effective, the Shares will not be registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and, thus, will not be freely tradable or eligible for resale, unless an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act, including Rule 144, is available.  Purchaser will not be able to rely on Rule 144 to sell the Shares unless the sale complies with the conditions of that rule, including satisfaction of Purchaser’s holding period.  An active public market for the Company’s Common Stock may not develop or be sustained. In addition, the number of unrestricted shares of the Company in the public float may represent only a small percentage of the shares of Common Stock outstanding.

 

(b)                                 Purchaser is an “accredited investor” within the meaning of Rule 501(d), as promulgated under the Securities Act because (i) Purchaser is an organization described in section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, corporation, Massachusetts or similar business trust, or partnership not formed for the specific purpose of acquiring the Shares, with total assets in excess of $5,000,000, or (ii) because Purchaser is an entity in which all of the equity owners are accredited investors.

 

(c)                                  Purchaser’s overall commitment to investments which are not readily marketable is not excessive in relation to its net worth.

 

(d)                                 (A)  Purchaser has all requisite power and authority to execute and deliver this Subscription Agreement, (B) the execution and delivery by Purchaser of this Subscription Agreement and the performance by it of its obligations hereunder have been duly authorized by all necessary action of Purchaser, (C) this Subscription Agreement has been duly and validly executed and delivered by Purchaser and constitutes legal, valid and binding obligations of Purchaser, and (D) this Subscription Agreement is enforceable against Purchaser in accordance with its terms, subject as to enforcement of remedies to applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or similar laws affecting generally the enforcement of creditors’ rights and the relief of debtors.

 

(e)                                  Purchaser acknowledges:

 

(i)                                     Purchaser consents to the placement of the following legend on any certificate or other document evidencing the Shares:

 

THESE SHARES HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “ACT”), OR THE SECURITIES LAWS OF ANY STATE AND HAVE BEEN SOLD IN RELIANCE UPON EXEMPTIONS THEREFROM. THESE SECURITIES MAY NOT BE PLEDGED, HYPOTHECATED, SOLD OR OTHERWISE TRANSFERRED IN THE ABSENCE OF AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT COVERING THESE SECURITIES UNDER THE ACT AND APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS OR AN EXEMPTION THEREFROM.

 

(ii)                                  The representations, warranties, and agreements of Purchaser contained herein shall survive the execution and delivery of this Subscription Agreement and the purchase of the Shares; and

 

(iii)                               In connection with any transfer or attempted transfer of Shares pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Act, the Company shall be permitted to require in its sole discretion an opinion of counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Company that such transfer is exempt from registration.

(f)                                   The Company is in material compliance with all laws, ordinances, and rules and regulations of governmental authorities applicable to or affecting it, its properties or its business, and the Company has not received notice of any claimed violation or default with respect to any of the foregoing which would reasonably be expected to have a material adverse effect on the Company.

5.                                      Affirmative Covenants of the Company.  The Company covenants and agrees that, beginning upon the date the Company executes this Subscription Agreement and ceasing immediately prior to the time the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) declares effective a registration statement on Form S-1 (the “Registration Statement”) which registers the resale of the Company’s Common Stock or the sale by the Company of its Common Stock, in each case, including without limitation, the Shares (in either event, an “IPO”), the Company shall:

 

(a)                                      (i) Use its commercial best efforts to submit an amendment to its Registration Statement to the SEC for its IPO by March 31, 2013, and (ii) its commercial best efforts to qualify as an “emerging growth company”. The Company covenants that such Registration Statement shall seek to register for resale some or all shares that are held by the Company’s shareholders (including the Shares issued to Purchaser), subject to market conditions. The Company further covenants that it shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to include in such Registration Statement all shares requested to be included by Non-management Holders (as hereinafter defined) as is practicable, subject to market conditions.

 

Any and all fees, costs and expenses incident to the registration and the IPO shall be borne by the Company. If the managing underwriter in the IPO advises the Company in writing that in its opinion, the shares of Common Stock proposed to be included in the registration exceeds the number of shares that can be sold in such offering, the Company shall include in such registration the number of shares of Common Stock to be sold by Non-management that such managing underwriter advises can be sold. In such event, the Company shall allocate that number of shares of Common Stock pro rata among the Non-management Holders of such shares of Common Stock.  The Company covenants that Purchaser shall be treated no worse than any other Non-management Holder with respect to the registration of its Shares, including with respect to the pro rata amount of its Shares registered.  In no event, in connection with any indemnification obligations by any holder of shares of Common Stock that are incident to the registration of such holder’s shares, shall such holder’s liability exceed its proportionate amount of any such indemnity and the net amounts received by such holder from the sale of its shares of Common Stock pursuant to the Registration Statement.

 

(b)                                      Until the effective date of the Registration Statement, the Company shall deliver to Purchaser, when available to management of the Company, (i) consolidated balance sheets and related statements of operations, shareholders’ equity and cash flows, as at the end of and for the applicable fiscal quarter; (ii) monthly consolidated statements of profits and losses; and (iii) copies of all Registration Statements and amendments thereto filed with the SEC, concurrent with such filings.

 

6.                                      Confidentiality.  Each party, agrees that they will not disclose, or cause to be disclosed, the fact of the existence or contents of this Subscription Agreement, to any third person other than (a) their attorneys, accountants, employees, affiliates and representatives, (b) as required by law, rule or regulation (including the Registration Statement), (c) as necessary to enforce this Subscription Agreement, or (d) in connection with capital raising efforts of the Company.
