1.

 

The number of Shares to be issued under each of subsections (a) and (b) of this Section 1.1 shall be rounded down to the nearest whole share.
 
1.2           Capital Adjustments.  If after the date hereof (i) the outstanding shares of the Company’s Common Stock shall be subdivided or split into a greater number of shares or a dividend in Common Stock shall be paid in respect of such Common Stock or (ii) the outstanding shares of Common Stock are combined, then all share quantities in this Agreement not yet issued shall be appropriately adjusted to reflect such stock split, stock dividend or conjunction.  If after the date hereof (i) the Company shall pay a dividend in securities of the Company (other than in Common Stock) or of other property (including cash) on the Common Stock, or (ii) there shall occur any merger, consolidation, capital reorganization or reclassification in which the Common Stock is converted or exchanged for securities, cash or other property, the class or series of stock constituting the Common Stock for purposes of this Agreement, shall be appropriately adjusted to reflect such other dividend, merger, consolidation, capital reorganization or reclassification.  After any event referenced in clauses (i) through (ii) of the immediately preceding sentence is consummated, if applicable, all references herein to the Company’s Common Stock shall be deemed to refer to the capital stock or property (including cash) into or for which the Common Stock was converted or exchanged, with the necessary changes in detail.

1.4           Second Tranche Adjustment.  In the event the number of Second Tranche Shares issued by the Company at the Second Tranche Closing shall, in accordance with Section 1.1(b), be less than the number of shares of Common Stock comprising the First Tranche Shares (subject to appropriate adjustment for stock splits, dividends, combinations, recapitalizations and the like affecting the Common Stock) (with such shortfall being referred to herein as the “Second Tranche Shortfall”), and if within twelve (12) months subsequent to the Second Tranche Closing the facts and circumstances applicable to such issuance have changed such that a greater number of Second Tranche Shares would have been issuable in accordance with Section 1.1(b) had the Second Tranche Closing occurred at a later date within such twelve (12) month period (including, without limitation, the receipt of stockholder approval for such issuance in accordance with Section 6.10), then the Company shall issue to Intrexon an additional number of shares equal to the number of shares comprising the Second Tranche Shortfall (subject to appropriate adjustment for stock splits, dividends, combinations, recapitalizations and the like affecting the Common Stock) or such lesser amount as may be permitted in accordance with Section 1.1(b), for the purchase price per share for the Second Tranche Shares specified in Section 2.1(b).  If, following such twelve (12) month period, there remains a Second Tranche Shortfall, the Company and Intrexon shall negotiate in good faith the terms of an alternate form of consideration of equivalent value to such Second Tranche Shortfall.

4.1           Purchaser Sophistication.  Intrexon represents and warrants to, and covenants with, the Company that Intrexon (a) is knowledgeable, sophisticated and experienced in making, and is qualified to make decisions with respect to, investments in shares presenting an investment decision like that involved in the purchase of the Shares, including investments in securities issued by the Company and investments in comparable companies, and has requested, received, reviewed and considered all information it deemed relevant in making an informed decision to purchase the Shares, (b) Intrexon, in connection with its decision to purchase the Shares, relied only upon the SEC Documents, other publicly available information, and the representations and warranties of the Company contained herein.  Intrexon is an "accredited investor" pursuant to Rule 501 of Regulation D under the Securities Act, (c) Intrexon is acquiring the Shares for its own account for investment only and with no present intention of distributing any of such Shares or any arrangement or understanding with any other persons regarding the distribution of such Shares; (d) Intrexon has not been organized, reorganized or recapitalized specifically for the purpose of investing in the Shares; (e) Intrexon will not, directly or indirectly, offer, sell, pledge, transfer or otherwise dispose of (or solicit any offers to buy, purchase or otherwise acquire to take a pledge of) any of the Shares except in compliance with the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws, (f) Intrexon understands that the Shares are being offered and sold to it in reliance upon specific exemptions from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and state securities laws, and that the Company is relying upon the truth and accuracy of, and Intrexon’s compliance with, the representations, warranties, agreements, acknowledgments and understandings of Intrexon set forth herein in order to determine the availability of such exemptions and the eligibility of Intrexon to acquire the Shares, (g) Intrexon understands that its investment in the Shares involves a significant degree of risk, including a risk of total loss of Intrexon’s investment (provided that such acknowledgment in no way diminishes the representations, warranties and covenants made by the Company hereunder) and (h) Intrexon understands that no United States federal or state agency or any other government or governmental agency has passed upon or made any recommendation or endorsement of the Shares.

 
11.

 

4.2           Authorization and Power.  Intrexon has the requisite power and authority to enter into and perform this Agreement and to purchase the Shares being sold to it hereunder.  The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by Intrexon and the consummation by it of the transactions contemplated hereby have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate action, and no further consent or authorization of Intrexon or its board of directors or stockholders is required.  When executed and delivered by Intrexon, this Agreement shall constitute a valid and binding obligation of Intrexon enforceable against Intrexon in accordance with its terms, except as such enforceability may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium, liquidation, conservatorship, receivership or similar laws relating to, or affecting generally the enforcement of, creditor’s rights and remedies or by other equitable principles of general application.
 
4.3           No Conflict.  The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by Intrexon and the consummation by Intrexon of the transactions contemplated hereby do not and will not (i) violate any provision of Intrexon’s charter or organizational documents, (ii) conflict with, or constitute a default (or an event which with notice or lapse of time or both would become a default) under, or give to others any rights of termination, amendment, acceleration or cancellation of, any agreement, mortgage, deed of trust, indenture, note, bond, license, lease agreement, instrument or obligation to which Intrexon is a party or by which Intrexon’s properties or assets are bound, or (iii) result in a violation of any federal, state, local or foreign statute, rule, regulation, order, judgment or decree (including federal and state securities laws and regulations) applicable to Intrexon or by which any property or asset of Intrexon are bound or affected, except, in all cases, other than violations (with respect to federal and state securities laws) above, for such conflicts, defaults, terminations, amendments, acceleration, cancellations and violations as would not, individually or in the aggregate, materially and adversely affect Intrexon’s ability to perform its obligations under the Agreement.
 
4.4           Restricted Shares.  Intrexon acknowledges that the First Tranche Shares and Second Tranche Shares are restricted securities and must be held indefinitely unless subsequently registered under the Securities Act or the Company receives an opinion of counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Company that such registration is not required.  Intrexon is aware of the provisions of Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act which permit limited resale of stock purchased in a private placement subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, including, among other things, the existence of a public market for the stock, the availability of certain current public information about the Company, the resale occurring not less than one year after a party has purchased and paid for the stock to be sold, the sale being through a “broker’s transaction” or a transaction directly with a “market maker” and the number of shares of the stock being sold during any three-month period not exceeding specified limitations.  Intrexon further acknowledges and understands that the Company may not be satisfying the current public information requirement of Rule 144 at the time Intrexon wishes to sell the Shares and, if so, Intrexon would be precluded from selling the Shares under Rule 144 even if the one year minimum holding period has been satisfied.
 
4.5           Ownership of Common Stock.  As of the date hereof, excluding the Shares, Intrexon and its Affiliates beneficially own no shares of Common Stock of the Company.

 
12.

 

4.6           Stock Legends.  Intrexon acknowledges that certificates evidencing the Shares shall bear a restrictive legend in substantially the following form (and including related stock transfer instructions and record notations):
 
THESE SECURITIES HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION OR THE SECURITIES COMMISSION OF ANY STATE IN RELIANCE UPON AN EXEMPTION FROM REGISTRATION UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “SECURITIES ACT”), AND, ACCORDINGLY, MAY NOT BE OFFERED OR SOLD EXCEPT PURSUANT TO AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OR PURSUANT TO AN AVAILABLE EXEMPTION FROM, OR IN A TRANSACTION NOT SUBJECT TO, THE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS OF THE SECURITIES ACT AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS OR BLUE SKY LAWS AS EVIDENCED BY A LEGAL OPINION OF COUNSEL REASONABLY SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY.
 
SECTION 5.        Survival of Representations, Warranties and Agreements.
 
Notwithstanding any investigation made by any party to this Agreement, all representations and warranties made by the Company and Intrexon herein shall survive the execution of this Agreement and the issuance and sale to Intrexon of the Shares and shall terminate two years after the First Tranche Closing, provided, however, the representations and warranties in Sections 3.1, 3.2 and 3.3 shall survive for so long as Intrexon continues to hold any of the Shares sold hereunder.

13.

 

6.3           Use of Proceeds.  The Company shall apply the proceeds from the sale of the Shares hereunder to ongoing operations, or for such other uses as determined by the Company’s board of directors.

(b)           Subject to Section 10.14, Intrexon’s rights and the Company’s obligations under this Section 6.6 shall terminate upon the termination of the Channel Agreement.
 
6.7         No Poison Pill.  The Company will not adopt any stockholder rights plan, “poison pill” or similar arrangement, or adopt any anti-takeover provisions under its Charter documents, that would trigger any right, obligation or event as a result of the issuance of the Shares hereunder to Intrexon or Intrexon’s ownership of such Shares, or the accumulation of shares of Common Stock acquired in the market by Intrexon or its affiliates, provided that Intrexon complies with Section 6.9 below.

 
14.

 

6.8         No Reduction in Outstanding Number of Shares.  Prior to the earlier of (i) the issuance of the Second Tranche Shares and (ii) the fifth year anniversary of the date hereof, the Company shall take no action that would reduce the number of its issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock (such as a repurchase or redemption thereof except (x) in the context of a repurchase or forfeiture of restricted stock issued to an employee, officer, director, consultant or advisor or (ii) a pro rata reverse stock split) such that the sum of the First Tranche Shares and 9.995% of the number of shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the First Tranche Closing (which for clarity equals the number of First Tranche Shares) (subject to appropriate adjustment for stock splits, dividends, combinations, recapitalizations and the like affecting the Common Stock) would, at the time of the Second Tranche Closing, exceed 19.99% of the issued and outstanding number of shares of Common Stock of the Company, unless the Company had first obtained the approval of its stockholders for the issuance at the Second Tranche Closing of Shares in an amount equal to 9.995% of the number of shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the First Tranche Closing (subject to appropriate adjustment for stock splits, dividends, combinations, recapitalizations and the like affecting the Common Stock) or such stockholder approval is not required under the NYSE Amex listing requirements in order to effect such full issuance in compliance therewith.
 
6.9          Standstill Provision.
 
(a)           Intrexon hereby agrees that, for a period of three years from the date hereof, unless specifically invited in writing by the Company to do so, neither Intrexon nor any of its Affiliates will, or will cause or knowingly permit any of its or their directors, officers, employees, investment bankers, attorneys, accountants or other advisors or representatives to, in any manner, directly or indirectly:

(ii)           form, join or in any way participate in a “group” (as defined under the Exchange Act, hereafter a “Group”) with respect to any securities of the Company;

15.

 

(iv)           take any action which could reasonably be expected to force the Company to make a public announcement regarding any of the types of matters set forth in this Section 6.9; or
 
(v)            enter into any agreements, discussions or arrangements with any third party with respect to any of the foregoing.
 
(b)           Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company hereby agrees that the provisions of this Section 6.9 shall not apply to the following:

(ii)           the exercise by Intrexon and/or its Affiliates,  if applicable, of any voting rights available to Company stockholders generally pursuant to any transaction described Section 6.9(a)(i) above, provided that Intrexon has not then either directly, indirectly, or as a member of a Group made, effected, initiated or caused such transaction to occur or otherwise violated this Section 6.9;
 
(iii)          the exercise by Intrexon and/or its Affiliates,  if applicable, of any voting rights generally available to it or them as non-Affiliate security holders of a third party that is a participant in an action or transaction described in Section 6.9(a)(i) above, provided that Intrexon has not then either directly, indirectly, or as a member of a Group made, effected, initiated or caused such action or  transaction to occur or otherwise violated this Section 6.9;
 
(iv)           any activity by Intrexon  after the Company has made any public announcement of its intent to solicit or engage in any transaction which would result in a Company Sale; and
 
(v)            making any communication to Company executive management on a confidential basis solely that Intrexon would be interested in engaging in discussions with the Company that could result in a negotiated transaction described in Section 6.9(a)(i) so long as Intrexon does not propose any such transaction or discuss or refer to potential terms thereof without the Company’s prior consent.
 
Notwithstanding any of the foregoing provisions of this Section 6.9, the Company further agrees that nothing herein shall limit the ability of the Observer or Randal J. Kirk to confidentially propose to the executive management of the Company and its board of directors, and/or advocate for, any transaction between the Company and any third party unaffiliated with Intrexon or its Affiliates.

 
16.

 

6.10           Stockholder Approval and Subsequent Issuance.  In the event the Company determines that a Second Tranche Shortfall will occur, then the Company shall (i) at its next annual meeting of stockholders after the date of such determination, hold a vote with respect to the issuance by the Company to Intrexon of  an amount of Shares equal to the number of shares comprising the Second Tranche Shortfall (subject to appropriate adjustment for stock splits, dividends, combinations, recapitalizations and the like affecting the Common Stock); (ii) solicit the approval of its stockholders with respect to such issuance, (iii) recommend that its stockholders approve such issuance and, (iv) if requisite stockholder approval is obtained therefor in accordance with the NYSE Amex listing rules, effect such issuance in accordance with Section 1.4.  In the event the Company is unable to secure such stockholder approval, and issue the full number of shares comprising the Second Tranche Shortfall, the Company shall negotiate the terms of an alternate form of consideration pursuant to Section 1.4.
 
6.11           NYSE Amex Approval.  In each case where the Company determines that the approval of the NYSE Amex (or any other exchange upon which the Common Stock may be listed) is required for the issuance of Common Stock to Intrexon, the Company shall use commercially reasonable efforts to secure such approval as promptly as possible.  In the event, notwithstanding the foregoing obligation, the Company is unable to secure the NYSE Amex Approval with respect to the issuance of any shares to be issued hereunder, the Company shall negotiate the terms of an alternate form of consideration of equivalent value to such unissued shares.
 

SECTION 7.        Equity Purchase Participation Right
 
7.1           Intrexon Election.  Intrexon shall be entitled to, at its election, participate in each Qualified Financing (as hereinafter defined) conducted by Company and may purchase as part of, or in connection with, such Qualified Financing an amount of Common Stock or other Company securities equal to 19.99% of the number of shares of Common Stock (or other Company securities) issued and sold by the Company in the Qualified Financing (excluding the securities sold pursuant to this Section 7.1) (collectively, the “Equity Purchase Participation Right”).  For the purposes of this Section 7, a “Qualified Financing” shall mean a sale by the Company of Common Stock, or equity securities convertible into Common Stock, in a public or private offering, raising gross proceeds of at least $5,000,000 where the shares sold are either registered under the Securities Act on issuance, or the Company agrees to register such shares following the issuance of such shares.  The price per share paid by Intrexon in any such Qualified Financing shall be the same as that paid by the other investors in such Qualified Financing, and Intrexon shall receive securities of the same type and with the same rights, preferences and privileges as the other investors in such Qualified Financing, including, for example, any warrant coverage, subject to the execution by Intrexon of the investment documents entered into by the other investors in the Qualified Financing.
 
In the event that the Qualified Financing is a public offering made pursuant to a registration statement filed with the Commission pursuant to the Securities Act:

(a)           Upon receipt of the prospectus and other offering documents prepared by the Company in connection with such public offering, Intrexon shall, within ten (10) days of receipt of such documents, notify the Company as to whether Intrexon wishes to participate in the Qualified Financing.  Upon such election, and subject to Section 7.1(b), the Company shall permit Intrexon to participate in such public offering in the amount elected by Intrexon in accordance with the preceding sentence.

 
17.

 

(b)           If counsel to the Company or counsel to any underwriter in such public offering advises the Company that Intrexon’s inclusion is not permissible under and in compliance with applicable securities laws (including without limitation Section 5 of the Securities Act), the offering and sale of securities to Intrexon pursuant to this Section 7 shall be made by the Company in a concurrent private placement and not in such public offering, which offering shall be subject to NYSE Amex prior approval.  In any such private placement:  (i) the offer of the securities in such private placement shall be made on the same terms and conditions as the offer of the securities in the public offering, (ii) the closing of the private placement shall occur concurrently with the closing of the Qualified Financing, and (iii) the Company shall provide registration rights similar to those provided in the Rights Agreement with respect to the securities purchased in the private placement.

The Company has the requisite corporate power to execute, deliver and perform its obligations under the Agreement, the Channel Agreement and the Rights Agreement (collectively, the “Transaction Documents”), including, without limitation, to issue, sell and deliver the Shares as contemplated by the Agreement.
 
5.
All corporate action on the part of the Company necessary for the authorization, execution and delivery of the Transaction Documents by the Company, the authorization, sale, issuance and delivery of the Shares and the performance by the Company of its obligations to be performed at the Closing under the Transaction Documents has been taken. Each of the Transaction Documents has been duly and validly authorized, executed and delivered by the Company.  The Agreement and the Rights Agreement (together, the “Equity Documents”) each constitutes a valid and binding agreement of the Company enforceable against the Company in accordance with its respective terms.
 
6.

7.
There are no pre-emptive rights or similar rights contained in the Company’s Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws or any Material Agreement.
 
8.
The execution and delivery of the Equity Documents and the issuance of the Shares pursuant thereto do not violate any provision of the Company’s Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws, do not constitute a default under or a material breach of any Material Agreement and do not (a) violate any U. S. Federal or state statute, rule or regulation which in the experience of such counsel is typically applicable to transactions of the nature contemplated by the Equity Documents or (b) violate any order, writ, judgment, injunction, decree, determination or award which has been entered against the Company and of which such counsel is aware, except, with respect to clauses (a) and (b), where such violation would not materially and adversely affect the Company.
 
 
25

 

9.
To the knowledge of such counsel, there is no action, proceeding or investigation pending or overtly threatened against the Company before any court or administrative agency that questions the validity of the Transaction Documents or that could reasonably be expected to result, either individually or in the aggregate, in a material adverse effect on the Company.
 
10.
All consents, approvals, authorizations, or orders of, and filings, registrations and qualifications with any U.S. Federal or state regulatory authority or governmental body required for the issuance of the Shares have been made or obtained, except (a) for the filing of a Form D pursuant to Securities and Exchange Commission Regulation D and (b) [add requisite blue sky filing(s)].
 
11.
Subject to the accuracy of the Purchasers’ representations in Section 4 of the Agreement and assuming (a) that neither the Company nor any person acting on behalf of the Company has offered or sold the Shares by any form of general solicitation or general advertising within the meaning of Rule 502(c) of Regulation D promulgated (the “Regulation D”) under the Securities Act; (b) that no offerings or sales of securities of the Company after the date hereof in a transaction can be “integrated” with any sales of the Shares, the offer and sale of the Shares in conformity with the terms of the Agreement constitute transactions that are exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, subject to the timely filing of a Form D pursuant to Regulation D.
 
12.
The Company is not, and, after giving effect to the offering and sale of the Shares and the application of the proceeds thereof in accordance with the business plans of the Company to which such counsel is aware, will not be an “investment company” as defined in the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended.
 
13.
To the knowledge of such counsel, there are no written contracts, agreements or understandings between the Company and any person granting such person the right (other than rights which have been waived in writing or otherwise satisfied) to require the Company to include any securities of the Company in any registration statement contemplated by Section 2(a) of the Rights Agreement.
