WARRANT TO PURCHASE COMMON STOCK
OF
TRAFFIC.COM, INC.

This is to certify that, FOR VALUE RECEIVED, PA Early Stage Partners, L.P. or its assigns (in either case, a “Holder”), is entitled to purchase, subject to the terms set forth below, from Traffic.com, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), during the period commencing on August 24, 2005 and ending at 5:00 P.M. (E.S.T.) on March 31, 2008 (the “Exercise Period”), an aggregate of Two Hundred Thousand (200,000) fully paid and non-assessable shares of Company Common Stock, $0.01 par value per share (the “Common Stock”), at a per share purchase price of $0.25 (the “Exercise Price”). The Exercise Price and the number of such shares are subject to adjustment, from time to time, as provided below.  The shares of Common Stock deliverable upon such exercise are hereinafter sometimes referred to as the “Warrant Shares.”  This Warrant is herein called the “Warrant.”

Section 1.               Exercise Period.  In the event that the expiration of the Exercise Period shall fall on a Saturday, Sunday or United States federally recognized holiday, the expiration of the Exercise Period shall be extended to 5:00 P.M. (E.S.T.) on the first business day following such Saturday, Sunday or recognized holiday. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, if any portion of this Warrant remains unexercised as of the Expiration Date and the Market Price of one share of Common Stock as of the Expiration Date is greater than the Exercise Price as of the Expiration Date, then this Warrant shall be deemed to have been exercised automatically, for the maximum number of shares then purchasable hereunder, immediately prior to the close of business on the Expiration Date (or, in the event that the Expiration Date is not a business day, the immediately preceding business day) (the “Automatic Exercise Date”) in the manner provided in Section 2 below, and the Holder (or such other person or persons as directed by the Holder) shall be treated for all purposes as the holder of record of such Warrant Shares as of the close of business on such Automatic Exercise Date. This Warrant shall be deemed to be surrendered to the Company on the Automatic Exercise Date by virtue of this Section 1 without any action by the Holder. As promptly as is reasonably practicable on or after the Automatic Exercise Date, but in no event before the date on which this Warrant is surrendered to the Company at the principal office of the Company, or such other office or agency of the Company as it may reasonably designate by written notice to the Holder, during normal business hours on any business day, the Company at its expense shall issue and deliver to the Holder (or such other person or persons as directed by the Holder) a certificate or certificates for the number of Warrant Shares issuable upon such exercise, in accordance with Section 2.

Section 2.               Exercise of Warrant.



a.             Manner of Exercise.  This Warrant may be exercised by the Holder, in whole or in part, at any time and from time to time during the Exercise Period, by (i) the surrender of this Warrant to the Company, with the Notice of Exercise attached hereto as Exhibit “A” (the “Notice of Exercise”) duly completed and executed on behalf of the Holder, at the principal office of the Company or such other office or agency of the Company as it may designate by notice in writing to the Holder (the “Principal Office”), and (ii) the delivery of payment to the Company of the Exercise Price for the number of Warrant Shares specified in the Notice of Exercise in any manner specified in Section 2(c).

b.             Issuance of Warrant Shares.  Such Warrant Shares shall be deemed to be issued to the Holder as the record holder of such Warrant Shares as of the close of business on the date on which this Warrant shall have been surrendered and payment shall have been made for the Warrant Shares as aforesaid. As promptly as practicable thereafter, but in any event within five (5) business days, the Company shall deliver to the Holder a stock certificate(s) for the Warrant Shares specified in the Notice of Exercise.  If this Warrant shall have been exercised only in part, the Company shall, at the time of delivery of the stock certificate(s), also deliver to the Holder, at the Company’s expense, a new Warrant evidencing the right to purchase the remaining number of Warrant Shares, which new Warrant shall in all other respects be identical to this Warrant.

c.             Payment of Exercise Price. The Exercise Price shall be payable (i) in cash or its equivalent, payable by wire transfer of immediately available funds to a bank account specified by the Company or by certified or bank cashiers’ check in lawful money of the United States of America, (ii) by surrendering to the Company the right to purchase a number of Warrant Shares equal to the product obtained by multiplying the number of Warrant Shares to be purchased (including the Warrant shares so surrendered) by a fraction, the numerator of which is the Exercise Price and the denominator of which is the Market Price (as defined below) of the Common Stock on the date of exercise of the Warrant, or (iii) in any combination of (i) and (ii).

The term “Market Price,” as used herein, shall mean, per share of Common Stock on any given day, the closing price per share of the Common Stock on the earlier of the day in question or, with respect to any issuance, payment or distribution, the day immediately prior to the first day the Common Stock trades regular way on the applicable securities exchange or in the applicable securities market without the right to receive such issuance, payment or distribution, where the closing price for each day shall be the reported last sale price regular way or, in case no such reported sale takes place on such day, the average of the reported closing bid and asked prices regular way, in either case (I) on the New York Stock Exchange, or (II) if the Common Stock is not listed or admitted to trading on such Exchange, on the principal national securities exchange on which the Common Stock is listed or admitted to trading, or (III) if the Common Stock is not listed or admitted to trading on any national securities exchange, on the Nasdaq National Market System, or (IV) if the Common Stock is not listed or admitted to trading on any national securities exchange or quoted on the Nasdaq National Market System, the average of the closing bid and asked prices in the over-the-counter market as furnished by any New York Stock Exchange member firm reasonably selected from time to time by the Board of Directors for such purpose; provided, however, that in the event that none of (I) through (IV) is applicable to the Common Stock, then the Market Price of the Common Stock shall be determined in good faith by the Company’s Board of Directors.

d.             Fractional Shares. The Company shall not issue fractions of Warrant Shares upon exercise of this Warrant or scrip in lieu thereof. If any fraction of a Warrant Share would, except for the provisions of this Section 2(d), be issuable upon exercise of this Warrant, the Company shall in lieu thereof pay to the person entitled thereto an amount in cash equal to such fraction, calculated to the nearest one-hundredth (1/00) of a share, multiplied by the Market Price for the Common Stock, determined as of the date of exercise.

Section 3.               Adjustment to Exercise Price and Warrant Shares.  The Exercise Price in effect from time to time and the number of Warrant Shares shall be subject to adjustment in certain cases as set forth in this Section 3.

a.             Stock Split.  If, at any time after the date hereof, the number of shares of the Company’s capital stock outstanding is increased by a stock dividend or by a subdivision or split-up of shares, then, following the record date for the determination of holders of capital stock entitled to receive such stock dividend, subdivision or split-up, the Exercise Price shall be appropriately decreased and the aggregate number of Warrant Shares shall be increased in proportion to such increase in outstanding shares. The foregoing provisions shall similarly apply to successive stock dividends, subdivisions or split-ups.

b.             Reverse Stock-Split.  If, at any time after the date hereof, the number of shares of capital stock outstanding is decreased by a combination or reverse-split of the outstanding shares, then, following the record date for such combination or reverse-split, the Exercise Price shall be appropriately increased and the aggregate number of Warrant Shares shall be decreased in proportion to such decrease in outstanding shares. The foregoing provisions shall similarly apply to successive combinations or reverse-splits.

c.             Issuance of Dividends.  In the event that the Company shall make or issue to holders of Common Stock, or shall fix a record date for the determination of holders of Common Stock entitled to receive, any dividend or other distribution payable in equity securities (other than shares of Common Stock), evidences of its indebtedness or other property (other than a cash dividend that is payable solely out of earnings or surplus legally available for dividends under applicable law), then, in each such event and as a condition precedent to the taking of any such action, lawful and adequate provision (in form and substance approved by the Holder, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed) shall be made whereby the Holder shall thereafter have the right to receive, upon exercise of this Warrant, in addition to the number of shares of Common Stock receivable thereupon, the amount of such equity securities, evidences of indebtedness or other property as the Holder would have received had the Holder been the record owner, at the time the Company made or issued such dividend or other distribution or on the record date fixed therefor, as the case may be, of that number of shares of Common Stock receivable upon exercise of this Warrant in full, and had the Holder thereafter, during the period from the date of such event to and including the date(s) on which the Holder exercises this Warrant, retained such equity securities, evidences of indebtedness or other property, giving application to all other adjustments called for during such period under this Section 3.

d.             Merger or Sale of Assets.  In the event that the Company shall effect (i) any consolidation or merger of the Company with or into any other person in which those holding more than 50% of the voting power of the Company prior to the consolidation or merger no longer hold more than 50% of the voting power of the surviving entity, or (ii) the sale or other disposition of all or substantially all of the Company’s assets to any other person, in such a way that the holders of Common Stock shall be entitled to receive cash, securities, evidences of indebtedness or other property with respect to or in exchange for their shares of Common Stock, then, in each such event and as a condition precedent to the consummation thereof, the Company or such other person as is formed by or survives such consolidation or merger or acquires such assets, as the case may be, shall execute and deliver to the Holder, without payment of any additional consideration therefor, a new Warrant (in form and substance approved by the Holder, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed) providing that the Holder shall have the right thereafter, during the period such Warrant shall remain outstanding, to exercise such Warrant into the kind and amount of cash, securities, evidences of indebtedness and other property as the Holder would have received had the Holder been the record owner, at the time of such consolidation, merger, sale or disposition, of that number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of this

 

3



Warrant in full immediately prior to the consummation of such consolidation, merger, sale or disposition. If the holders of the Common Stock may elect from choices the kind and/or amount of cash, securities, evidences of indebtedness and other property receivable upon such consolidation, merger, sale or disposition, then, for purposes of this Section 3(d), the kind and amount of cash, securities, evidences of indebtedness and other property receivable by the Holder upon exercise of such new Warrant shall be specified by the Holder, which specification shall be made by the Holder by the later of (I) ten (10) business days after the Holder is provided with a final version of all material information concerning such choice as is provided to the holders of Common Stock, or (II) the last time at which the holders of Common Stock are permitted to make their specifications known to the Company; provided, however, that if the Holder fails to make any specification within such time period, the Holder’s choice shall be deemed to be whatever choice is made by a plurality of the holders of Common Stock not affiliated with the Company or, in the case of a consolidation, merger, sale or disposition, the other parties thereto. Such new Warrant shall provide for adjustments that, for events subsequent to the effective date of such new Warrant, shall be as nearly equivalent as may be practicable to the adjustments provided for in this Section 3. The foregoing provisions shall similarly apply to successive consolidations, mergers or asset acquisitions.

e.             Notice of Adjustment.  In each case of an adjustment or readjustment of the Exercise Price and number of Warrant Shares pursuant to this Section 3, the Company shall, at its expense, promptly furnish to the Holder a certificate prepared and signed by the Treasurer or Chief Financial Officer of the Company, setting forth (i) such adjustment or readjustment, (ii) the Exercise Price and number of Warrant Shares in effect following such adjustment or readjustment (including the amount, if any, of other securities and property that at the time would be received upon the exercise of this Warrant), and (iii) the facts, set forth in reasonable detail, upon which such adjustment or readjustment is based.

Section 4.               No Dilution or Impairment.  The Company shall not, by amendment to its certificate of incorporation or through reorganization, consolidation, merger, dissolution, sale of assets or any other voluntary action, avoid or seek to avoid the observance or performance of any of the terms of this Warrant, but will at all times in good faith assist in the carrying out of all such terms and in the taking of all such action as may be necessary or appropriate in order to protect the rights of the Holder against dilution or other impairment. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Company will not increase the par value of any shares of stock receivable upon the exercise of this Warrant above the amount payable therefor upon such exercise, and at all times will take all such action as may be necessary or appropriate in order that the Company may validly and legally issue fully paid and non-assessable stock upon the exercise of this Warrant.

Section 5.               Exchange and Replacement.

a.             Manner of Exchange and Replacement.  This Warrant is exchangeable, upon surrender of the Warrant by the Holder to the Company at the Principal Office, for new Warrants of like tenor registered in the Holder’s name and representing in the aggregate the right to purchase the same number of Warrant Shares purchasable hereunder, each of such new Warrants to represent the right to purchase such number of Warrant Shares as shall be designated by the Holder at the time of surrender.

b.             Issuance of New Warrant.  Upon receipt by the Company of (i) evidence reasonably satisfactory to it of the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of this Warrant, and (ii) (A) in the case of loss, theft or destruction, an indemnity agreement reasonably satisfactory in form and substance to the Company or (B) in the case of mutilation, this Warrant, the Company, at its expense, shall execute and deliver, in lieu of this Warrant, a new Warrant of like tenor and amount.

Section 6.               Representations and Warranties of the Company.  The Company represents and warrants to the Holder that all shares of Common Stock which may be issued upon the exercise of this Warrant will, upon issuance in accordance with the terms of this Warrant, be validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable.

Section 7.               Covenants of the Company.  The Company covenants and agrees that it shall take all such action as may be required to assure that the Company shall at all times have authorized and reserved, a sufficient number of shares of its Common Stock to provide for the exercise of this warrant and/or other similar Warrants.

Section 8.               No Stockholder Rights.  The Holder shall not be entitled to vote or receive dividends or be deemed the holder of the Warrant Shares or any other securities of the Company that may at any time be issuable upon the exercise hereof for any purpose, nor shall anything contained herein be construed to confer upon the Holder, as such, any of the rights of a stockholder of the Company or any right to vote for the election of directors or upon any other matter submitted to the stockholders of the Company at any meeting thereof, or to give or withhold consent to any corporate action (whether upon any recapitalization, issuance or reclassification of capital stock, change of par value, or change of stock to no par value, consolidation, merger, conveyance or otherwise) or to receive notice of meetings, or to receive dividends or subscription rights or otherwise, until the Warrant shall have been exercised as provided herein.

Section 9.               Restrictions on Transfer.  This Warrant may not be transferred or assigned to any person without the prior written consent of the Company.
