(b)           The Company has the requisite corporate power and authority to execute, deliver and perform its obligations under this Agreement and to issue and sell the Notes. All necessary proceedings of the Company have been duly taken to authorize the execution, delivery, and performance of the Transaction Documents.  The Transaction Documents have been duly authorized by the Company and, when executed and delivered by the Company, will constitute the legal, valid and binding obligation of the Company enforceable against the Company in accordance with their terms, except as such enforceability may be limited by general principles of equity or to applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium, liquidation and other similar laws relating to, or affecting generally, the enforcement of applicable creditors' rights and remedies.

4

 

(d)          The execution, delivery and performance by Company of the Transaction Documents to which it is a party have been duly authorized, and do not (i) conflict with any of Parent’s or Company’s organizational documents, (ii) contravene, conflict with, constitute a default under or violate any material statute, law, rule, regulation or court decree binding upon or applicable to the Parent or Company, or its assets or properties, (iii) contravene, conflict or violate any applicable order, writ, judgment, injunction, decree, determination or award of any Governmental Authority by which Parent, Company or any of its Subsidiaries or any of their property or assets may be bound or affected, (iv) require any action by, filing, registration, or qualification with, or governmental approval from, any Governmental Authority (except such governmental approvals which have already been obtained and are in full force and effect) or (v) constitute an event of default or give rise to a right to terminate under any material agreement by which Parent, Company or any of its Subsidiaries is bound.  Neither Company nor Parent is in default under any agreement to which it is a party or by which it is bound in which the default could reasonably be expected to have a material adverse effect on Company’s business.
 
(e)          Company is the sole owner of the Intellectual Property associated with rVUE and the out of home display and digital media exchange and advertising business presented to Lender, and all related assets and businesses, which it owns or purports to own except for (a) non-exclusive licenses granted to its customers in the ordinary course of business, (b) over-the-counter software that is commercially available to the public, and (c) material Intellectual Property licensed to Company.  Each Patent which it owns or purports to own and which is material to Company’s business is valid and enforceable, and no part of the Intellectual Property which Company owns or purports to own and which is material to Company’s business has been judged invalid or unenforceable, in whole or in part.  To the best of Company’s knowledge, no claim has been made that any part of the Intellectual Property violates the rights of any third party except to the extent such claim would not reasonably be expected to have a material adverse effect on Company’s business.
 
(f)           There are no actions or proceedings pending or, to the knowledge of Parent or the Company, threatened in writing by or against Company or any of its Subsidiaries involving more than, individually or in the aggregate, Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000).
 
(g)          The financial statements of the Company provided to the Lender have been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles applied on a consistent basis during the periods involved (“GAAP”), except as may be otherwise specified in such financial statements or the notes thereto and except that the financial statements may not contain all footnotes required by GAAP, and fairly present in all material respects the financial position of the Company and for the dates thereof and the results of operations and cash flows for the periods then ended, subject to normal, immaterial, year-end audit adjustments.
 
Piggyback Registration Rights.  Any Lender, and in the case of the Reverse Merger, any Lender who participates in a Reverse Merger Financing in accordance with Section 8 below, shall be entitled to the following registration rights for so long as any of the Notes are outstanding, subject to the conditions set forth below:

 
5

 

If at any time after the date hereof the Company, or after the closing of a Reverse Merger Financing, the Public Company, shall determine to file with the Commission a registration statement under the Securities Act relating to an offering for its own account or the account of others of any of its equity securities (other than on Form S-4 or Form S-8 or their then equivalents relating to equity securities to be issued solely in connection with any acquisition of any entity or business or equity securities issuable in connection with stock option or other bona fide, employee benefit plans), the Company or the Public Company, as the case may be, shall send to each Lender who is entitled to registration, written notice of such determination not less than twenty (20) days prior to filing such registration statement, and, if within ten (10) days after the mailing date of such notice, such Lender shall so request in writing, the Company or the Public Company shall include in such registration statement all or any part of the Shares of the Public Company received or to be received by such Lender upon conversion of the Notes that such Lender requests to be registered, except that if, in connection with any underwritten public offering for the account of the Company or the Public Company the managing underwriter(s) thereof shall impose a limitation on the number of such Shares which may be included in the registration statement because, in such underwriter(s)’ judgment, marketing or other factors dictate such limitation is necessary to facilitate public distribution, then the Company or the Public Company shall be obligated to include in such registration statement only such limited portion of the Shares with respect to which such Lender has requested inclusion hereunder as the underwriter shall permit. Any exclusion of Shares shall be made pro rata among the Lender seeking to include Shares in proportion to the number of securities sought to be included by such additional investors; provided, however, that the Company or the Public Company shall not exclude any Shares unless the Company or Public Company has first excluded all outstanding securities, the purchaser of which are not entitled to inclusion of such securities in such registration statement or are not entitled to pro rata inclusion with the Shares; and provided, further, however, that, after giving effect to the immediately preceding proviso, any exclusion of Shares shall be made pro rata with the purchaser of other securities having the right to include such securities in the registration statement other than purchaser of securities entitled to inclusion of their securities in such registration statement by reason of demand registration rights.  If an offering in connection with which a Lender is entitled to registration is an underwritten offering, then each Lender whose Shares are included in such registration statement shall, unless otherwise agreed by the Company or Public Company, offer and sell such Shares in an underwritten offering using the same underwriter or underwriters and on the same terms and conditions as other shares of Common Stock included in such underwritten offering.  In the event the Company or the Public Company is advised by the staff of the Commission, or any applicable self-regulatory or state securities agency, that the inclusion of the Shares will prevent, preclude or materially delay the effectiveness of a registration statement filed, the Company and the Public Company, in good faith, may amend such registration statement to exclude the Shares without otherwise affecting the Lender’s rights to any other registration statement.  Any costs associated with registration of the Shares shall be paid by the Company or Public Company.
 
4.           Representations, Warranties and Covenants of Lender.  Lender hereby represents and warrants to, and agrees with, the Company as follows:
 
(a)           Lender is an “Accredited Investor” as such term is defined in Rule 501(a) promulgated under the Securities Act.
 
(b)           Each of the Transaction Documents to which Lender is party has been duly executed and delivered by Lender and constitutes the legal, valid and binding obligation of Lender, enforceable against Lender in accordance with its terms except as such enforceability may be limited by general principles of equity or to applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium, liquidation and other similar laws relating to, or affecting generally, the enforcement of applicable creditors' rights and remedies.

 
6

 

(c)           The execution, delivery and performance by Lender of the Transaction Documents to which it is a party have been duly authorized, and do not (i) conflict with any of Lender’s organizational documents, (ii) contravene, conflict with, constitute a default under or violate any material statute, law, rule, regulation or court decree binding upon or applicable to Lender or its assets or properties, (iii) contravene, conflict or violate any applicable order, writ, judgment, injunction, decree, determination or award of any Governmental Authority by which Lender or any of its property or assets may be bound or affected, (iv) require any action by, filing, registration, or qualification with, or governmental approval from, any Governmental Authority (except such governmental approvals which have already been obtained and are in full force and effect) or (v) constitute an event of default or give rise to a right to terminate under any material agreement by which Lender is bound.
 
(d)           Lender is familiar with the business, plans and financial condition of the Company; Lender has received all materials that have been requested by Lender; Lender has had a reasonable opportunity to ask questions of the Company and its representatives, and the Company has answered to the satisfaction of Lender all inquiries that Lender or Lender’s representatives have put to it.

7

 

(h)           Lender acknowledges that the Notes to be acquired will be subject to a stop transfer order and any certificate or certificates evidencing any Notes shall bear the following or a substantially similar legend and such other legends as may be required by state blue sky laws:
 
 
“THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED HEREBY HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE UNITED STATES SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “SECURITIES ACT”), OR ANY STATE SECURITIES LAWS.  SUCH SECURITIES MAY NOT BE SOLD, OFFERED FOR SALE, PLEDGED OR HYPOTHECATED OR OTHERWISE TRANSFERRED IN THE ABSENCE OF A REGISTRATION STATEMENT IN EFFECT WITH RESPECT TO SUCH SECURITIES UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OR AN AVAILABLE EXEMPTION FROM THE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS OF THE SECURITIES ACT.  ANY SUCH TRANSFER MAY ALSO BE SUBJECT TO COMPLIANCE WITH APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS.”

(b)           Existing Secured Lenders; Effectiveness of the Security Document.  The Company acknowledges that the Lenders’ security interests are a first priority security interest in the Company.

8

 

(c)           Optional Exchange.  Prior to the repayment of any Note outstanding, if at any time through and including the closing date of the Reverse Merger Transaction the Company closes the Subsequent Financing,  Lender, in its sole discretion, may convert the Note for securities of the same type issued in the Subsequent Financing (such exchange to be made at the same time as the closing of the Subsequent Financing), on the same terms and conditions as the Subsequent Financing, based on the outstanding principal amount of the Notes, plus accrued and unpaid Interest.  By way of example, if the Company undertakes a Subsequent Financing of convertible debentures and warrants to purchase shares of a Public Company at the time of a Reverse Merger Transaction,  Lender may participate in such Subsequent Financing and use the exchange of the Notes as consideration, on a dollar for dollar basis, in lieu of cash consideration for the purchase of such Public Company convertible debentures and warrants at the same purchase price and subject to the same terms and conditions as other purchasers thereof who are not Lenders. Lender shall have the right to exercise only a single optional exchange in the Subsequent Financing.  Should Lender choose not to participate in the Subsequent Financing, the right of a Lender to elect to exchange Notes under this Section 5(c) shall terminate. The Company shall provide at least three (3) Business Days prior written notice of the Subsequent Financing in the manner set forth in this Section and the Note holder must notify the Company in writing at least (1) Business Day prior to the date set for closing of the Subsequent Financing if the holder desires to participate in the optional exchange.

(a)           the representations and warranties of the Parent and Company set forth in this Agreement and in the other Transaction Documents shall be true and correct in all material respects as of such date as if made on such date (except that to the extent that any such representation or warranty relates to a particular date, such representation or warranty shall be true and correct in all material respects as of that particular date);

such Lender shall have executed each Transaction Document to which it is a party and shall have delivered the same to the Company.
 
8.           Reverse Merger Transaction.  Parent and Company covenant and agree each Lender shall have the right to participate, in an amount not to exceed the face value of such Lender’s Note, plus accrued and unpaid interest, in any Reverse Merger Financing on the same terms and conditions as all other Lenders in such Reverse Merger Financing in accordance with terms of this Section 8.
 
(a)           At least three (3) Business Days prior to the closing of the Reverse Merger Financing, the Company shall deliver to Lender a written notice of its intention to effect a Reverse Merger Financing (“RM Notice”), which RM Notice shall describe in detail the proposed terms of such Reverse Merger Financing, the amount of proceeds intended to be raised thereunder and the person or persons through or with whom such Reverse Merger Financing is proposed to be effected, including all parties contemplated to participate therein in any capacity, and shall include a term sheet or similar document relating thereto as an attachment and any available drafts of contemplated transaction documentation.
