AMENDED AND RESTATED FOUNDER WARRANT PURCHASE AGREEMENT

THIS AMENDED AND RESTATED FOUNDER WARRANT PURCHASE AGREEMENT (this “Agreement”) is made as of October 12, 2007, between Secure America Acquisition Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), and Secure America Acquisition Holdings, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Purchaser”). Except as otherwise indicated herein, capitalized terms used herein are defined in Section 7 hereof.
 
WHEREAS, the original Founder Warrant Purchase Agreement was executed on September 27, 2007, the parties herein have agreed to amend and restate such agreement.

WHEREAS, the Purchaser is an entity affiliated with the officers and directors of the Company; and

WHEREAS, in furtherance of the Company’s plan to obtain funding through an initial public offering (the “Offering”) of its units (the “Units”), each Unit consisting of one share of common stock (the “Common Stock”), par value $0.0001 per share, of the Company (the “Unit Common Stock”) and one warrant to purchase one share of Common Stock (each, a “Unit Warrant” and collectively, the “Unit Warrants”), and to demonstrate its commitment to this plan, the Purchaser desires to make an investment in the Company by purchasing warrants (each, a “Founder Warrant” and collectively, the “Founder Warrants” ) on the terms and conditions described herein.

NOW THEREFORE, the parties to this Agreement hereby agree as follows:

Section 1. Authorization, Purchase and Sale; Terms of the Founder Warrants.

A. Authorization of the Founder Warrants. The Company has authorized, and hereby ratifies such authorization by execution hereof, the issuance and sale to the Purchaser of an aggregate of 2,075,000 Founder Warrants. Each Founder Warrant shall, upon exercise and payment of the exercise price specified therein, entitle the holder to purchase one share of the Company’s Common Stock.

B. Purchase and Sale of the Founder Warrants. The Company shall sell to the Purchaser, and subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, the Purchaser shall purchase from the Company, prior to the effectiveness of the Registration Statement, 2,075,000 Founder Warrants. The purchase price of each Founder Warrant shall be $1.00 per warrant (the “Purchase Price”), which shall be paid in immediately available funds through wire transfers to the trust account (the “Trust Account”) to be established pursuant to that certain Investment Management Trust Agreement by and between the Company and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company (“Continental”). The aggregate Purchase Price shall be wired to the Trust Account by the Purchaser so as to be on deposit in the Trust Account not less than 24 hours prior to the effectiveness of the Registration Statement. Amounts so received in the Trust Account shall be credited against the purchase obligations of the Purchaser.
 
C. Terms of the Founder Warrants. The Founder Warrants shall carry rights and terms identical to those possessed by the Unit Warrants described in the Registration Statement, subject to the following exceptions: (i) the Founder Warrants are not subject to redemption so long as they are owned by the Purchaser or its members as of the date of this Agreement, (ii) the Founder Warrants may be exercised on a cashless basis while the Unit Warrants cannot be exercised on a cashless basis and (iii) upon an exercise of the Founder Warrants, the holder of the Founder Warrants will receive unregistered shares of Common Stock. The Founder Warrants will be differentiated from Warrants sold in the Offering through the legends contained on the certificates representing the Founder Warrants indicating the restrictions and rights specifically applicable to such Founder Warrants as are described in the Registration Statement.
 

 
D. Transfer Restrictions. The Founder Warrants, subject to certain limited exceptions described below, will not be transferable or salable until they are released from escrow, which will not occur until the later of (a) one year after the date of the final prospectus included in the Registration Statement and (b) sixty days after the consummation of the Company’s initial Business Combination. Prior to their release from escrow, the Founder Warrants may be transferred (i) to persons or entities controlling, controlled by, or under common control with the Founder, or to any stockholder, member, partner or limited partner of such entity, or (ii) to family members and trusts of permitted assignees for estate planning purposes or, upon the death of any such person, to an estate or beneficiaries of permitted assignees. In each case, such transferees will be subject to the same transfer restrictions as the Founder until after the Company completes its initial Business Combination.
 
Section 2. The Closing. The closing of the purchase and sale of the Founder Warrants to the Purchaser (the “Closing”) shall take place immediately prior to the effectiveness of the Registration Statement. At the Closing, the Company shall deliver warrant certificates evidencing the Founder Warrants to be purchased by the Purchaser hereunder to Continental, acting as escrow agent, pursuant to the founder warrant escrow agreement, by and among the Company, Continental and the Purchaser (the “Founder Warrant Escrow Agreement”), registered in the Purchaser’s name, upon the payment of the aggregate purchase price therefor, by wire transfer of immediately available funds to the Trust Account pursuant to Section 1.B. above.

Section 3. Representations, Warranties and Covenants of the Purchaser. As a material inducement to the Company to enter into this Agreement and issue and sell the Founder Warrants to the Purchaser, the Purchaser hereby represents, warrants and covenants to the Company that:

A. Capacity and State Law Compliance.

(i)   The Purchaser is a limited liability company duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of Delaware and is qualified to do business in every jurisdiction in which the failure to so qualify would reasonably be expected to have a material adverse effect on the financial condition, operating results or assets of the Purchaser.

(ii)   The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by the Purchaser will have been duly authorized by the Purchaser as of the Closing.

(iii) To the Purchaser’s knowledge, the Purchaser has engaged in the transactions contemplated by this Agreement within a state in which the offer and sale of the Founder Warrants is permitted under applicable securities laws. The Purchaser understands and acknowledges that the purchase of Common Stock upon exercise of the Founder Warrants may require the registration of such Common Stock under federal and/or state securities laws or the availability of an exemption from such registration requirements.

B. Authorization; No Breach.

(i)  The Purchaser has the full right, power and authority to enter into this Agreement, and this Agreement constitutes a valid and binding obligation of the Purchaser, enforceable in accordance with its terms.

(ii) The execution and delivery by the Purchaser of this Agreement, and the fulfillment of and compliance with the terms hereof by the Purchaser do not, and shall not as of the Closing, conflict with or result in a breach of the terms, conditions or provisions of any other agreement, instrument, order, judgment or decree to which the Purchaser is subject.

C. Investment Representations.

(i)  The Purchaser is acquiring the Founder Warrants and, upon exercise thereof, will acquire the Common Stock issuable upon such exercise (collectively, the “Securities”), for its own account, for investment only and not with a view towards, or for resale in connection with, any public sale or distribution thereof.

(ii) The Purchaser is an “accredited investor” as defined in Rule 501(a)(3) of Regulation D.

(iii) The Purchaser understands that the Securities are being offered and sold to it in reliance on specific exemptions from the registration requirements of United States federal and state securities laws, and that the Company is relying in part upon the truth and accuracy of, and the Purchaser’s compliance with, the representations, warranties and agreements of the Purchaser set forth herein in order to determine the availability of such exemptions and the eligibility of the Purchaser to acquire such Securities.

(iv) The Purchaser did not decide to enter into this Agreement as a result of any general solicitation or general advertising within the meaning of Rule 502(c) under the Securities Act, including the filing of the Registration Statement.

(v) By virtue of the Purchaser’s affiliation with officers and directors of the Company, the Purchaser has access to all materials relating to the business, finances and operations of the Company and materials relating to the offer and sale of the Securities. The Purchaser has been afforded the opportunity to ask questions of the other executive officers and directors of the Company. The Purchaser understands that its investment in the Securities involves a high degree of risk. The Purchaser has sought such accounting, legal and tax advice as the Purchaser has considered necessary to make an informed investment decision with respect to its acquisition of the Securities. The Purchaser has received and reviewed a copy of the Registration Statement, including, without limitation, the language therein under the caption “Risk Factors.”

(vi) The Purchaser understands that no United States federal or state agency or any other government or governmental agency has passed on, or made any recommendation or endorsement of, the Securities or the fairness or suitability of the investment in the Securities nor have such authorities passed upon or endorsed the merits of the offering of the Securities.

(vii) The Purchaser understands that: (A) the Securities have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws, and may not be offered for sale, sold, assigned or transferred unless (x) subsequently registered thereunder or (y) sold in reliance on an exemption therefrom; and, (B) except as specifically set forth in the Registration Rights Agreement, neither the Company nor any other person is under any obligation to register such Securities under the Securities Act or any state securities laws or to comply with the terms and conditions of any exemption thereunder. In this regard, the Purchaser represents that it is familiar with Rule 144 adopted pursuant to the Securities Act, and understands the resale limitations imposed thereby and by the Securities Act. The Purchaser is able to bear the economic risk of its investment in the Securities for an indefinite period of time.

(viii) The Purchaser is an investor in securities of companies in the development stage and acknowledges that it has knowledge and experience in financial and business matters, knows of the high degree of risk associated with investments generally and particularly investments in the securities of companies in the development stage such as the Company, is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of an investment in the Securities and is able to bear the economic risk of an investment in the Securities in the amount contemplated hereunder. The Purchaser has adequate means of providing for its current financial needs and contingencies and will have no current or anticipated future needs for liquidity which would be jeopardized by the investment in the Securities. The Purchaser can afford a complete loss of its investment in the Securities.
 
(ix) Without in any way limiting the representations set forth above, the Purchaser agrees not to make any disposition of the Securities (or any part thereof) unless and until:

(A) There is then in effect a registration statement under the Securities Act covering such proposed disposition and such disposition is made in accordance with such registration statement; or

(B)  the Purchaser shall have notified the Company of the proposed disposition and shall have furnished the Company with a detailed statement of the circumstances surrounding the proposed disposition and, if reasonably requested by the Company, the Purchaser shall have furnished the Company with an opinion of counsel, reasonably satisfactory to the Company, that such disposition will not require registration of such Securities under the Securities Act. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Purchaser also understands and acknowledges that the transfer or exercise of the Founder Warrants is subject to the specific conditions to such transfer or exercise as outlined herein, as to which the Purchaser specifically assents by its execution hereof.

D. No Group. By virtue of the Purchaser’s purchase of the Founder Warrants under this Agreement, such participation shall not be construed so as to make the Purchaser part of, or a participant in, a “group” as defined in Rule 13d-5 of the Exchange Act with respect to any securities of the Company.

E. Rescission Right Waiver and Indemnification.

(i) The Purchaser understands and acknowledges that an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act requires that there be no general solicitation of purchasers of the Founder Warrants. In this regard, if the Offering were deemed to be a general solicitation with respect to the Founder Warrants, the offer and sale of such Founder Warrants might not be exempt from registration and, if not, the Purchaser would have a prima facie claim, subject to applicable defenses, to rescind its purchase of the Founder Warrants. In order to facilitate the completion of the Offering and in order to protect the Company, its stockholders and the Trust Account from claims that may adversely affect the Company or the interests of its stockholders, the Purchaser hereby agrees to waive, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, any claims, right to sue or rights in law or arbitration, as the case may be, to seek rescission of its purchase of the Founder Warrants. The Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that this waiver is being made in order to induce the Company to sell the Founder Warrants to the Purchaser. The Purchaser further agrees that the foregoing waiver of rescission rights shall, to the extent permitted under applicable law, apply to any and all known or unknown actions, causes of action, suits, claims, or proceedings (collectively, “Rescission Claims”) and related losses, costs, penalties, fees, liabilities and damages, whether compensatory, consequential or exemplary, and expenses in connection therewith (collectively, “Losses and Expenses”), including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ and expert witness fees and disbursements and all other expenses reasonably incurred in investigating, preparing or defending against any Rescission Claims, whether pending or threatened, in connection with any present or future actual or asserted right to rescind the purchase of the Founder Warrants hereunder or relating to the purchase of the Founder Warrants and the transactions contemplated hereby.

(ii) The Purchaser hereby waives any and all right, title, interest or claim of any kind in or to any distributions from the Trust Account with respect to any shares of Common Stock acquired by the Purchaser in connection with the exercise of the Founder Warrants purchased pursuant to this Agreement (“Claim”) and hereby waives any Claim the undersigned may have in the future as a result of, or arising out of, any contracts or agreements with the Company and will not seek recourse against the Trust Account for any reason whatsoever.

(iii) The Purchaser agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Company and the Trust Account against any and all Losses and Expenses whatsoever to which the Company and the Trust Account may become subject as a result of the purchase of the Founder Warrants by the Purchaser, including, but not limited to, any Claim by the Purchaser, but only to the extent necessary to ensure that such Losses and Expenses do not reduce the amount in the Trust Account. Further, the Purchaser agrees to indemnify and hold harmless SunTrust Robinson Humphrey, Inc., individually and as representative of the underwriters (“SunTrust”) against any and all Losses and Expenses whatsoever to which SunTrust may become subject as a result of the purchase of the Founder Warrants by the Purchaser, including, but not limited to, any Claim by the Purchaser.

(iv) The Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that the stockholders of the Company, including those who purchase the Units in the Offering, are and shall be third-party beneficiaries of the foregoing provisions of Section 3.E. of this Agreement.

(v) The Purchaser agrees that, to the extent any waiver of rights under this Section 3.E. is ineffective as a matter of law, the Purchaser has offered such waiver for the benefit of the Company as an equitable right that shall survive any statutory disqualification or bar that applies to a legal right. The Purchaser further acknowledges the receipt and sufficiency of consideration received from the Company hereunder in this regard.
