          Section 3.03 Transfers Not in Compliance. In the event of any purported or attempted Transfer of Shares by a Stockholder that does not comply with this Agreement, the purported transferee or successor by operation of law shall not be deemed to be a stockholder of the Company for any purpose and shall not be entitled to any of the rights of a stockholder, including, without limitation, the right to vote the Shares or to receive a certificate for the Shares or any dividends or other distributions on or with respect to the Shares.
          Section 3.04 Tag-Along Rights. Except as provided below, if, at any time prior to the Registration Period Commencement Date, JLL Building Products proposes to Transfer directly or indirectly (through the transfer of interests in JLL Building Products, its controlling stockholders, or otherwise) in one or more transactions an amount equal to more than fifty percent (50%) of the number of shares of Common Stock it holds immediately after the Initial Public Offering to any Person, JLL Building Products shall provide each Other Stockholder (each a “Notice Recipient”) and the Company with not less than twenty (20) days’ prior written notice (the “Sale Notice”) of such proposed Transfer, which notice shall include all of the terms and conditions of such proposed Transfer and which notice shall identify such purchaser; and the Notice Recipient shall have the option, exercisable by written notice to JLL Building Products within ten (10) days of receipt of the Sale Notice, to require JLL Building Products to arrange for such purchaser or purchasers to purchase the same percentage (the “Percentage”) of the Shares then owned by such Notice Recipient as the ratio of the total number of shares of Common Stock that are to be Transferred by JLL Building Products pursuant to the proposed Transfer (including any previously Transferred shares of Common Stock if pursuant to multiple Transfers) to the total number of shares of Common Stock owned by JLL Building Products immediately prior to such Transfer, or any lesser amount of Shares as such Notice Recipient shall desire, together with JLL Building Products’ shares of Common Stock at the same time as, and upon the same terms and conditions at which, JLL Building Products sells its shares of Common Stock. If a Notice Recipient shall so elect, JLL Building Products agrees that it shall either (a) arrange for the proposed purchaser or purchasers to purchase all or a portion (as such Notice Recipient shall specify) of the same Percentage of the Shares then owned by such Notice Recipient at the same time as and upon the same terms and conditions at which JLL Building Products sells its shares of Common Stock, and, provided that, if such purchaser or purchasers shall elect to purchase only such aggregate number of shares of Common Stock as originally agreed with JLL Building Products, then the number of shares of Common Stock to be sold by JLL Building Products and the number of Shares to be sold by all Notice Recipients electing to participate in the proposed Transfer shall be reduced pro rata to such aggregate number; or (b) not effect the proposed Transfer to such purchaser or purchasers.

the terms set forth therein without being required to provide an additional Sale Notice to the remaining Other Stockholders and comply with the terms of this Section 3.04.
          Section 3.05 Drag-Along Rights. If at any time prior to the Registration Period Commencement Date, JLL Building Products proposes to Transfer all or substantially all of its shares of Common Stock (other than to a Permitted Transferee), JLL Building Products shall have the right, upon not less than twenty (20) days’ prior written notice of such proposed sale (the “Purchase Notice”), which notice shall include all of the terms and conditions of such proposed sale and which notice shall identify the proposed purchaser or purchasers of such shares of Common Stock (“Drag Along Purchaser(s)”), to require each of the Other Stockholders to sell to the Drag Along Purchaser(s) that number of Shares (“Call Shares”) equal to the product, rounded down to the nearest whole number, of (a) a fraction, the numerator of which is the total number of shares of Common Stock proposed to be sold by JLL Building Products, together with its Permitted Transferees, and the denominator of which is the total number of shares of Common Stock then owned by JLL Building Products multiplied by (b) the number of Shares then owned by such Other Stockholder. If JLL Building Products shall so elect, JLL Building Products shall arrange for such Drag Along Purchaser(s) to purchase the Call Shares at the same time as and upon the same terms and conditions at which JLL Building Products sells its shares of Common Stock. Upon receipt of the Purchase Notice, each of the Other Stockholders shall cooperate with JLL Building Products and otherwise take, or cause to be taken, all actions and do, or cause to be done, all things necessary or appropriate to enter into, consummate, and make effective the sale and purchase of the Call Shares, together with JLL Building Products’ shares of Common Stock being so Transferred.
          Section 3.06 Effect of Notices. Notwithstanding any provision hereof to the contrary, the giving to any Stockholder of any Sale Notice or any Purchase Notice shall not obligate JLL Building Products to consummate or effect any transaction referred to therein, and JLL Building Products shall be free to abandon any such transaction prior to the effectiveness thereof. If any such transaction is so abandoned, the Other Stockholders and JLL Building Products shall continue to be subject to the terms of this Article III with respect to the Shares included in such Sale Notice or Purchase Notice.

At any time after the Registration Period Commencement Date, subject to the conditions set forth herein, JLL Building Products (or, in the event that JLL Building Products has distributed its Registrable Securities to its members or the partners of its members, the holders of a majority of Registrable Securities then owned by all of such members and partners, which for purposes of this Article IV shall have all of the rights and obligations of JLL

7


 

Exhibit 4.1
Builing Products) shall be entitled to make a written request of the Company (a “Demand”) for registration under the Securities Act of all or part of its Registrable Securities (a “Demand Registration”). Such Demand shall specify: (i) the aggregate number of Registrable Securities requested to be registered; provided that such Registrable Securities must have an aggregate Fair Market Value of at least $10,000,000; and (ii) the intended method of distribution in connection with such Demand Registration to the extent then known. Within ten (10) business days of receipt of a Demand, the Company shall give written notice of such Demand to each Other Stockholder and shall include in such registration all Registrable Securities with respect to which the Company has received a written request for inclusion therein within ten (10) business days of the receipt by such Stockholder of the Company’s notice as required by Section 4.02 of this Agreement.
               (b) Number of Demands. JLL Building Products shall be entitled to four (4) Demand Registrations.
               (c) Satisfaction of Obligations. Subject to the provisions of Section 4.03, a registration shall not be treated as a permitted Demand for a Demand Registration until (i) the applicable registration statement under the Securities Act has been filed with the Commission with respect to such Demand Registration (which shall include any registration statement that is not withdrawn by holders of Registrable Securities in the circumstances contemplated by Section 4.03); and (ii) such registration statement shall have been maintained continuously effective for a period of at least one hundred twenty (120) days or such shorter period during which all Registrable Securities included therein have been disposed of thereunder in accordance with the method of distribution set forth in such registration statement.
               (d) Availability of Short Form Registrations. The Company shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to comply with the requirements for use of short form registration for the sale of Registrable Securities under the Securities Act.
               (e) Restrictions on Demand Registrations. The Company shall not be obligated (i) in the case of a Demand Registration, to maintain the effectiveness of a registration statement under the Securities Act for a period longer than 120 days; or (ii) to effect any Demand Registration within one hundred eighty (180) days of the effective date of (A) a registration in which JLL Building Products and the Other Stockholders were given “piggyback” rights pursuant to Section 4.02 hereof (provided that, with respect to such a registration in which such piggyback rights were exercised, JLL Building Products and the Other Stockholders were permitted to include in such registration twenty-five percent (25%) of the Registrable Securities that such Stockholder sought to include therein) or (B) any other Demand Registration. In addition, the Company shall be entitled to postpone (upon written notice to JLL Building Products) for up to ninety (90) days the filing or the effectiveness of a registration statement in respect of a Demand (but no more than once in any period of twelve (12) consecutive months) if the Board determines in good faith and in its reasonable judgment that effecting the Demand Registration in respect of such Demand would have a material adverse effect on any proposal or plan by the Company to engage in any debt or equity offering, material

8


 

Exhibit 4.1
acquisition, or disposition of assets (other than in the ordinary course of business) or any merger, consolidation, tender offer, or other similar transaction or otherwise would be materially detrimental to the Company. In the event of a postponement by the Company of the filing or effectiveness of a registration statement in respect of a Demand, JLL Building Products shall have the right to withdraw such Demand in accordance with Section 4.03 hereof.
               (f) Participation in Demand Registrations. Except with the prior written consent of JLL Partners, the Company may not include any securities to be sold for the Company’s account in a Demand Registration. If, in connection with a Demand Registration, any managing underwriter advises the Company and JLL Building Products that, in its opinion, the inclusion of all the Registrable Securities and, if authorized pursuant to this Article IV, other securities of the Company, in each case, sought to be registered in connection with such Demand Registration would adversely affect the marketability of the Registrable Securities sought to be sold pursuant thereto, then the Company shall include in the registration statement applicable to such Demand Registration only such securities as the Company and JLL Building Products are advised by such underwriter can be sold without such an effect (the “Maximum Demand Number”), as follows and in the following order of priority:
          (i) first, the number of Registrable Securities sought to be registered by JLL Building Products and the Other Stockholders, pro rata in proportion to the number of Registrable Securities sought to be registered by each such Stockholder; and
          (ii) second, if the number of Registrable Securities to be included under clause (i) above is less than the Maximum Demand Number, the number of securities sought to be included by each other seller, pro rata in proportion to the number of securities sought to be sold by all such other sellers, which in the aggregate, when added to the number of securities to be included pursuant to clause (i) above, equals the Maximum Demand Number.
               (g) Selection of Underwriters. If JLL Building Products requests that such Demand Registration be an underwritten offering, then JLL Building Products shall select a nationally recognized underwriter or underwriters to manage and administer such offering, such underwriter or underwriters, as the case may be, to be subject to the approval of the Company, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.
               (h) Other Registrations. If the Company has received a Demand and if the applicable registration statement in respect of such Demand has not been withdrawn or abandoned, the Company shall not file or cause to be effected any other registration of any of its equity securities or securities convertible or exchangeable into or exercisable for its equity securities under the Securities Act (other than a registration relating to the Company’s employee benefit plans, exchange offers by the Company, or a merger or acquisition of a business or assets by the Company, including,

9


 

Exhibit 4.1
without limitation, a registration on Form S-4 or S-8 or any successor form), whether on its own behalf or at the request of any holder or holders of such securities, until a period of at least ninety (90) days has elapsed from the effective date of any Demand Registration, unless a shorter period of time is approved by JLL Building Products. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company shall be entitled to postpone any such Demand Registration and may file or cause to be effected such other registration in accordance with the terms of Section 4.01(e) hereof.
          Section 4.02 Piggyback Registrations.
               (a) Right to Piggyback. During the Registration Period, whenever the Company proposes to register any shares of its Common Stock or Common Stock held by any stockholders of the Company under the Securities Act (other than a registration under Regulation A or relating to the Company’s employee benefit plans, exchange offers by the Company, or a merger or acquisition of a business or assets by the Company, including, without limitation, a registration on Form S-4 or Form S-8 or any successor form) (a “Piggyback Registration”), the Company shall give each of the Stockholders prompt written notice thereof (but not less than ten (10) business days prior to the filing by the Company with the Commission of any registration statement with respect thereto). Such notice (a “Piggyback Notice”) shall specify the number of securities proposed to be registered, the proposed date of filing of such registration statement with the Commission, the proposed means of distribution, the proposed managing underwriter or underwriters (if any and if known), and a good faith estimate by the Company of the proposed minimum offering price of such securities. Upon the written request of a Stockholder given to the Secretary of the Company within ten (10) business days of the receipt by such Stockholder of the Piggyback Notice requesting that the Company include in such registration Registrable Securities owned by such Stockholder in an amount equal to or greater than the Requisite Amount (which written request shall specify the number of Registrable Securities intended to be disposed of by such Stockholder and the intended method of distribution thereof), the Company shall include in such registration all Registrable Securities with respect to which the Company has received such written requests for inclusion, in accordance with the terms hereof.
               (b) Priority on Piggyback Registrations. If, in connection with a Piggyback Registration, any managing underwriter (or, if such Piggyback Registration is not an underwritten offering, a nationally recognized independent underwriter selected by the Company) advises the Company and the holders of the Registrable Securities to be included in such Piggyback Registration, that, in its opinion, the inclusion of all the securities sought to be included in such Piggyback Registration by the Company, by any Persons other than the Stockholders who have sought to have shares registered thereunder pursuant to rights to demand (other than pursuant to so-called “piggyback” or other incidental or participation registration rights) such registration (such demand rights, being “Other Demand Rights” and such other Persons, being “Other Demanding Sellers”), by any holders of securities (including the Stockholders) seeking to sell such securities in such Piggyback Registration (“Piggyback Sellers”), in each case, if any would materially adversely affect the marketability of the securities sought to be sold pursuant thereto, then the Company shall include in the registration statement applicable to such Piggyback

10


 

Exhibit 4.1
Registration only such securities as the Company, the Other Demanding Sellers, and the Piggyback Sellers are so advised by such underwriter can be sold without such an effect (the “Maximum Piggyback Number”), as follows and in the following order of priority:
          (i) if the Piggyback Registration is an offering on behalf of the Company and not any Person exercising Other Demand Rights (whether or not other Persons seek to include securities therein pursuant to so-called “piggyback” or other incidental or participatory registration rights) (a “Primary Offering”), then (A) first, such number of securities to be sold by the Company as the Company, in its reasonable judgment and acting in good faith and in accordance with sound financial practice, shall have determined, (B) second, if the number of securities to be included under clause (A) above is less than the Maximum Piggyback Number, pro rata in proportion to the securities sought to be registered by all the Piggyback Sellers which in the aggregate, when added to the number of securities to be registered under clause (A) above, equals the Maximum Piggyback Number;
          (ii) if the Piggyback Registration is an offering other than pursuant to a Primary Offering, then (A) first, such number of securities sought to be registered by each Other Demanding Seller, pro rata in proportion to the number of securities sought to be registered by all such Other Demanding Sellers, (B) second, if the number of securities to be included under clause (A) above is less than the Maximum Piggyback Number, the number of securities sought to be registered by each Piggyback Seller, pro rata in proportion to the securities sought to be registered by all the Piggyback Sellers, which in the aggregate, when added to the number of securities to be registered under clause (A) above, equals the Maximum Piggyback Number.
               (c) Withdrawal by the Company. If, at any time after giving written notice of its intention to register any of its securities as set forth in this Section 4.02 and prior to the time the registration statement filed in connection with such registration is declared effective, the Company shall determine not to go forward with a Primary Offering, the Company may, at its election, give written notice of such determination to each Stockholder and thereupon shall be relieved of its obligation to register any Registrable Securities in connection with such particular withdrawn or abandoned registration (but not from its obligation to pay the Registration Expenses in connection therewith as provided herein).
          Section 4.03 Withdrawal Rights. Any Stockholder having notified or directed the Company to include any or all of its Registrable Securities in a registration statement under the Securities Act shall have the right to withdraw any such notice or direction with respect to any or all of the Registrable Securities designated for registration thereby by giving written notice to such effect to the Company prior to the effective date of such registration statement. In the event of any such withdrawal, the Company shall not include such Registrable Securities in the applicable registration and

11


 

Exhibit 4.1
such Registrable Securities shall continue to be Registrable Securities hereunder. No such withdrawal shall affect the obligations of the Company with respect to the Registrable Securities not so withdrawn; provided that in the case of a Demand Registration, if such withdrawal shall reduce the number of Registrable Securities sought to be included in such registration below $10 million of aggregate Fair Market Value as of such date, then the Company shall as promptly as practicable give each holder of Registrable Securities sought to be registered notice to such effect, referring to this Agreement and summarizing this Section 4.03, and within five (5) business days of the effectiveness of such notice either the Company or the holders of a majority of the Registrable Securities sought to be registered may, by written notices made to each holder of Registrable Securities sought to be registered and the Company, elect that such registration statement not be filed or, if theretofore filed, be withdrawn. During such period of five (5) business days, the Company shall not file such registration statement if not theretofore filed, or, if such registration statement has been theretofore filed, the Company shall not seek, and shall use its best efforts to prevent, the effectiveness thereof. Any Demand Registration withdrawn in accordance with an election by JLL Building Products subsequent to the effectiveness of the applicable Demand Registration Statement shall be counted as a Demand Registration unless JLL Building Products reimburses the Company for its reasonable out-of-pocket expenses related to the preparation and filing of such registration statement (in which event such registration statement shall not be counted as a Demand Registration hereunder).
          Section 4.04 Holdback Agreements. Each Stockholder agrees not to effect any public sale or distribution (including sales pursuant to Rule 144) of equity securities of the Company, or any securities convertible into or exchangeable or exercisable for such securities, during the ten (10) day period prior to the date on which the Company intends to commence a Public Offering (provided the Stockholders are notified in writing of such commencement date) through the ninety (90) day period immediately following the effective date of any such Public Offering (except as part of such registration), or, if later, the 90 day period immediately following the execution date of any underwriting agreement with respect thereto.
          Section 4.05 Registration Procedures.
               (a) Whenever the Stockholders have requested that any Registrable Securities be registered pursuant to this Agreement, the Company (subject to its right to withdraw such registration as contemplated by Section 4.02(c)) shall use commercially reasonable efforts to effect the registration and the sale of such Registrable Securities in accordance with the intended method of disposition thereof and, in connection therewith, the Company shall:
          (i) use commercially reasonable efforts to (A) register the Registrable Securities on Form S-3 or another available short form registration statement, to the extent permitted under the Securities Act, (B) cause the registration statement to remain effective for a continuous period of not less than 180 days (or, if earlier, until all of the Registrable Securities included in such registration statement have been sold

12

          (x) use commercially reasonable efforts to furnish to each seller of Registrable Securities a signed counterpart of (x) an opinion of counsel for the Company and (y) a “comfort” letter signed by the independent public accountants who have certified the Company’s financial statements included or incorporated by reference in such registration statement, covering such matters with respect to such registration statement and, in the case of the accountants’ comfort letter, with respect to events subsequent to the date of such financial statements, as are customarily covered in opinions of issuer’s counsel and in accountants’ comfort letters delivered to the underwriters in underwritten public offerings of securities for the account of, or on behalf of, an issuer of common stock, such opinion and comfort letters to be dated the date of such opinions and comfort letters are customarily dated in such transactions, and covering in the case of such legal opinion, such other legal matters and, in the case of such comfort letter, such other financial matters, as the holders of a majority of the Registrable Securities being sold may reasonably request.

15


 

Exhibit 4.1
Registrable Securities may, at its option, require that any and all representations and warranties by, and indemnities and agreements of, the Company to or for the benefit of such underwriter or underwriters (or which would be made to or for the benefit of such an underwriter or underwriter if such sale of Registrable Securities were pursuant to a customary underwritten offering) be made to and for the benefit of such seller and that any or all of the conditions precedent to the obligations of such underwriter or underwriters (or which would be so for the benefit of such underwriter or underwriters under a customary underwriting agreement) be conditions precedent to the obligations of such seller in connection with the disposition of its securities pursuant to the terms hereof. In connection with any offering of Registrable Securities registered pursuant to this Agreement, the Company shall (x) furnish to the underwriter, if any (or, if no underwriter, the sellers of such Registrable Securities), unlegended certificates representing ownership of the Registrable Securities being sold, in such denominations as requested and (y) instruct any transfer agent and registrar of the Registrable Securities to release any stop transfer order with respect thereto.
               (c) Return of Prospectuses.

          Section 4.07 Indemnification.
               (a) By the Company. The Company agrees to indemnify, to the fullest extent permitted by law, each holder of Registrable Securities being sold, its directors, and each Person who controls (within the meaning of the Securities Act) such holder against all losses, claims, damages, liabilities, and expenses (including legal fees and expenses and all costs incident to investigation or preparation with respect to such losses, claims, damages, liabilities, and expenses and to reimburse such indemnified Person for such costs as incurred) (collectively, the “Losses”) caused by, resulting from, or relating to any untrue or alleged untrue statement of material fact contained in any registration statement, prospectus, or preliminary prospectus or any amendment thereof or supplement thereto or any omission or alleged omission of a material fact required to be stated therein or a fact necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, except insofar as the same are caused by or contained in any information furnished to the Company by or on behalf of such holder in writing expressly for use therein or by such holder’s failure to deliver a copy of the registration statement or prospectus or any amendments or supplements thereto after the Company has furnished such holder with a sufficient number of copies of the same and notified such holder of such obligation. In connection with an underwritten offering and without limiting any of the Company’s other obligations under this Agreement, the Company shall indemnify such underwriters, their officers, directors, employees, and agents and each Person who controls (within the meaning of the Securities Act) such underwriters or such an other indemnified Person to the same extent as provided above with respect to the indemnification of the holders of Registrable Securities being sold.
               (b) By the Stockholders. In connection with any registration statement in which a holder of Registrable Securities is participating, each such holder will, if requested, furnish to the Company in writing information regarding such holder’s ownership of Registrable Securities and, to the extent permitted by law, shall indemnify the Company, its directors, and each Person who controls (within the meaning of the Securities Act) the Company against all Losses caused by, resulting from, or relating to any untrue or alleged untrue statement of material fact contained in the registration statement, prospectus, or preliminary prospectus or any amendment thereof or supplement thereto or any omission or alleged omission of a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, but only to the extent that such untrue statement or omission is caused by and contained in such information so furnished to the Company in writing by or on behalf of such holder; provided, however, that each holder’s obligation to indemnify the Company hereunder

17


 

Exhibit 4.1
shall be apportioned between each holder based upon the net amount received by each holder from the sale of Registrable Securities, as compared to the total net amount received by all of the holders of Registrable Securities sold pursuant to such registration statement, no such holder being liable to the Company in excess of such apportionment.
               (c) Notice. Any Person entitled to indemnification hereunder shall give prompt written notice to the indemnifying party of any claim with respect to which its seeks indemnification; provided, however, the failure to give such notice shall not release the indemnifying party from its obligation, except to the extent that the indemnifying party has been materially prejudiced by such failure to provide such notice.
               (d) Defense of Actions. In any case in which any such action is brought against any indemnified party, and it notifies an indemnifying party of the commencement thereof, the indemnifying party will be entitled to participate therein, and, to the extent that it may wish, jointly with any other indemnifying party similarly notified, to assume the defense thereof, with counsel reasonably satisfactory to such indemnified party, and after notice from the indemnifying party to such indemnified party of its election so to assume the defense thereof the indemnifying party will not (so long as it shall continue to have the right to defend, contest, litigate, and settle the matter in question in accordance with this paragraph) be liable to such indemnified party hereunder for any legal or other expense subsequently incurred by such indemnified party in connection with the defense thereof other than reasonable costs of investigation, supervision and monitoring (unless such indemnified party reasonably objects to such assumption on the grounds that there may be defenses available to it that are different from or in addition to the defenses available to such indemnifying party, in which event the indemnified party shall be reimbursed by the indemnifying party for the expenses incurred in connection with retaining separate legal counsel). An indemnifying party shall not be liable for any settlement of an action or claim effected without its consent. The indemnifying party shall lose its right to defend, contest, litigate, and settle a matter if it shall fail diligently to contest such matter (except to the extent settled in accordance with the next following sentence). No matter shall be settled by an indemnifying party without the consent of the indemnified party (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld).
               (e) Survival. The indemnification provided for under this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect regardless of any investigation made by or on behalf of the indemnified Person and will survive the transfer of the Registrable Securities and the termination of this Agreement.
               (f) Contribution. If recovery is not available under the foregoing indemnification provisions for any reason or reasons other than as specified therein, any Person who would otherwise be entitled to indemnification by the terms thereof shall nevertheless be entitled to contribution with respect to any Losses with respect to which such Person would be entitled to such indemnification but for such reason or reasons. In determining the amount of contribution to which the respective Persons are entitled, there shall be considered the Persons’ relative knowledge and access to information concerning the matter with respect to which the claim was asserted, the

18


 

Exhibit 4.1
opportunity to correct and prevent any statement or omission, and other equitable considerations appropriate under the circumstances. It is hereby agreed that it would not necessarily be equitable if the amount of such contribution were determined by pro rata or per capita allocation. No person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Securities Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any person who was not found guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Stockholder shall be required to make a contribution in excess of the net amount received by such holder from the sale of Registrable Securities.
