B. The Company is offering (the “Offering”) restricted warrants (the “Warrants”) (the Warrants and the shares of common stock underlying the warrants, collectively referred to herein as the “Securities”) to a holders of those certain warrants purchased pursuant to that certain Confidential Private Placement Memorandum, dated December 26, 2013, as supplemented (collectively, the “Memorandum”) who qualify as “accredited investors” as defined in Rule 501 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act at a purchase price for the Warrants as described below.

  

C. The Securities are being offered on a “best efforts” basis to existing warrant holders.

  

D. The purchase price of the Warrants shall be $0.01 (the “Purchase Price”). The Warrants shall have a five (5) year life with a strike price equal to the $3.00 (the “Exercise Price”), which may be exercised cashless if the underlying shares are not registered after nine (9) months from final Closing (“closing” is defined below).

  

E. The Company desires to issue and sell the Securities to each Purchaser in one or more closings (each a “Closing” and collectively the “Closings”) as set forth herein.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the representations, warranties, covenants and agreements herein contained and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties, intending to be legally bound, hereby agree as follows:

 

1. AGREEMENT TO SELL AND PURCHASE.

 

1.1 Authorization of Securities. The Board of Directors of the Company has authorized (i) the sale of up to one hundred Warrants (on a pro-rated basis); and (ii) the reservation of 100,000 restricted common shares to be issued upon exercise of the Warrants (the “Warrant Shares”).

 

1.2 Initial Sale and Purchase of Securities. Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, and in reliance upon the representations, warranties and covenants contained herein, at the Initial Closing, the Company shall issue and sell to each Purchaser, and each Purchaser shall purchase from the Company, the number of Securities set forth opposite such Purchaser’s name on Exhibit A under the “Initial Securities” column.

2. CLOSINGS, DELIVERY AND PAYMENT.

 

2.1 Initial Closing. Subject to the conditions set forth in Section 5 herein, the initial closing of the sale and purchase of the Securities (the “Initial Closing”), shall take place electronically on such date and at such time as is agreed between the Company and the Placement Agent (such date the “Initial Closing Date”), in no event later than June 13, 2014 (the “Termination Date”).

 

2.2 Subsequent Closings. Subject to the conditions set forth in Section 5, each Subsequent Closing shall take place electronically on such date and at such time as is agreed between the Company and the Placement Agent (such date the “Subsequent Closing Date”), in no event later than June 17, 2014 (the “Final Termination Date”).

Within five (5) business days following any Closing the Company will deliver, unless otherwise requested by any Purchaser, one (1) certificate registered in such Purchaser’s name representing the Securities purchased by such Purchaser at such Closing and the Warrants included in the Securities purchased by such Purchaser at such Closing.

The Company agrees that following the Removal Date, it will, no later than five (5) trading days following the request for issuance without a legend with respect to not yet issued Securities or Warrant Shares, or the delivery by a Purchaser to the Company or the Transfer Agent of a certificate representing Warrant Shares with respect to already issued Shares or Warrant Shares, as the case may be, issued with a restrictive legend, together with any reasonable certifications requested by the Company, the Company’s counsel or the Transfer Agent (such fifth (5th) trading day, the “Legend Removal Date”), deliver or cause to be delivered to such Purchaser a certificate representing such shares that is free from all restrictive and other legends. The Company may not make any notation on its records or give instructions to the Transfer Agent that enlarge the restrictions on transfer set forth in this Section 6. Certificates for Shares and Warrant Shares subject to legend removal hereunder shall be transmitted by the Transfer Agent to the Purchaser by crediting the account of the Purchaser’s prime broker with the Depository Trust Company System as directed by such Purchaser if the Transfer Agent is then a participant in such system and the Company is eligible to use such system and as directed by such Purchaser if either (i) there is an effective registration statement permitting the resale of such Warrant Shares by the Purchaser (and the Purchaser provides the Company or the Company’s counsel with any requested certifications with respect to future sales of such shares) or (ii) the shares are eligible for resale by the Purchaser under Rule 144, without the requirement for the Company to be in compliance with the current public information required under Rule 144 as to such Warrant Shares and without volume or manner-of-sale restrictions.

 

6.1.4. In addition to such Purchaser’s other available remedies, the Company shall pay to a Purchaser, in cash, as partial liquidated damages and not as a penalty, for each $1,000 of Warrant Shares (based on the VWAP of the Common Stock on the date such Securities are submitted to the Transfer Agent) delivered for removal of the restrictive legend and subject to Section 6.1.3, $10 per Trading Day for each Trading Day after the Removal Date (increasing to $20 per Trading Day after the tenth Trading Day) until such certificate is delivered without a legend. Nothing herein shall limit such Purchaser’s right to pursue actual damages for the Company’s failure to deliver certificates representing any Securities as required by the Transaction Documents, and such Purchaser shall have the right to pursue all remedies available to it at law or in equity including, without limitation, a decree of specific performance and/or injunctive relief.

 

22
 

 

6.1.5. DWAC. In lieu of delivering physical certificates representing the unlegended shares, upon request of a Purchaser, so long as the certificates therefor do not bear a legend and the Purchaser is not obligated to return such certificate for the placement of a legend thereon, the Company shall cause its transfer agent to electronically transmit the unlegended shares by crediting the account of Purchaser’s prime broker with the Depository Trust Company through its Deposit Withdrawal At Custodian system, provided that the Company’s Common Stock is DTC eligible and the Company’s transfer agent participates in the Deposit Withdrawal at Custodian system. Such delivery must be made on or before the Removal Date.

 

6.1.6. In the event a Purchaser shall request delivery of unlegended shares as described in this Section 6.1.6 and the Company is required to deliver such unlegended shares, the Company may not refuse to deliver unlegended shares based on any claim that such Purchaser or anyone associated or affiliated with such Purchaser has not complied with Purchaser’s obligations under the Transaction Documents, or for any other reason, unless, an injunction or temporary restraining order from a court, on notice, restraining and or enjoining delivery of such unlegended shares shall have been sought and obtained by the Company and the Company has posted a surety bond for the benefit of such Purchaser in the amount of the greater of (i) 15% of the amount of the aggregate purchase price of the Warrant Shares which is subject to the injunction or temporary restraining order, or (ii) the VWAP of the Common Stock on the trading day before the issue date of the injunction multiplied by the number of unlegended shares to be subject to the injunction, which bond shall remain in effect until the completion of arbitration/’litigation of the dispute and the proceeds of which shall be payable to such Purchaser to the extent Purchaser obtains judgment in Purchaser’s favor.

 

6.1.7. Buy-In. In addition to any other rights available to Purchaser, if the Company fails to deliver to a Purchaser unlegended shares as required pursuant to this Agreement and after the Removal Date the Purchaser, or a broker on the Purchaser’s behalf, purchases (in an open market transaction or otherwise) shares of Common Stock to deliver in satisfaction of a sale by such Purchaser of the shares of Common Stock which the Purchaser was entitled to receive in unlegended form from the Company (a “Buy-In”), then the Company shall promptly pay in cash to the Purchaser (in addition to any remedies available to or elected by the Purchaser) the amount, if any, by which (A) the Purchaser’s total purchase price (including brokerage commissions, if any) for the shares of Common Stock so purchased exceeds (B) the aggregate purchase price of the shares of Common Stock delivered to the Company for reissuance as unlegended shares together with interest thereon at a rate of 15% per annum accruing until such amount and any accrued interest thereon is paid in full (which amount shall be paid as liquidated damages and not as a penalty). For example, if a Purchaser purchases shares of Common Stock having a total purchase price of $11,000 to cover a Buy-In with respect to $10,000 of purchase price of Warrant Shares delivered to the Company for reissuance as unlegended shares, the Company shall be required to pay the Purchaser $1,000, plus interest, if any. The Purchaser shall provide the Company written notice indicating the amounts payable to the Purchaser in respect of the Buy-In.

 

23
 

 

6.1.8. Each Purchaser, severally and not jointly with the other Purchasers, agrees with the Company that such Purchaser will sell the Securities pursuant to either the registration requirements of the Securities Act, including any applicable prospectus delivery requirements, or an exemption therefrom, and that if Securities are sold pursuant to a registration statement, they will be sold in compliance with the plan of distribution set forth therein, and acknowledges that the removal of the restrictive legend from certificates representing Securities as set forth in this Section 6.1.8 is predicated upon the Company’s reliance upon this understanding.

 

6.2 Reservation of Shares. The Company shall at all times while the Warrants are outstanding maintain a reserve from its duly authorized shares of common stock of a number of shares of common stock sufficient to allow for the issuance of Warrant Shares (“Required Minimum”).

 

6.3 Replacement of Securities. If any certificate or instrument evidencing any Securities is mutilated, lost, stolen or destroyed, the Company shall issue or cause to be issued in exchange and substitution for and upon cancellation thereof, or in lieu of and substitution therefor, a new certificate or instrument, but only upon receipt of evidence reasonably satisfactory to the Company of such loss, theft or destruction and customary and reasonable indemnity, if requested. The applicants for a new certificate or instrument under such circumstances shall also pay any reasonable third-party costs associated with the issuance of such replacement securities. If a replacement certificate or instrument evidencing any securities is requested due to a mutilation thereof, the Company may require delivery of such mutilated certificate or instrument as a condition precedent to any issuance of a replacement.

 

6.4 Securities Laws; Publicity. The Company shall by 8:30 a.m. (New York City time) on the trading day immediately following a Closing hereunder, or at the latest, prior to the second trading day immediately following a Closing hereunder, file a Current Report on Form 8-K disclosing the material terms of the transactions contemplated hereby and including the Transaction Documents as exhibits thereto to the extent required by law. The Company shall not publicly disclose the name of Purchaser, or include the name of any Purchaser in any filing with the SEC or any regulatory agency or trading market, without the prior written consent of Purchaser, except: (a) as required by federal securities law in connection with the filing of final Transaction Documents (including signature pages thereto) with the SEC and (b) to the extent such disclosure is required by law, in which case the Company shall provide the Purchaser with prior notice of such disclosure permitted under this clause (b).

 

6.5 Form D; Blue Sky Filings. The Company agrees to timely file a Form D with respect to the Securities as required under Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act and to provide a copy thereof, promptly upon request of the Purchaser. The Company shall take such action as the Company shall reasonably determine is necessary in order to obtain an exemption for, or to qualify the Securities for, sale to the Purchaser at the Closing under applicable securities or “Blue Sky” laws of the states of the United States, and shall provide evidence of such actions promptly upon request of any Purchaser.

 

6.6 Equal Treatment of Purchasers. No consideration (including any modification of any Transaction Document) shall be offered or paid to any person to amend or consent to a waiver or modification of any provision of any of the Transaction Documents unless the same consideration is also offered to all of the parties to the Transaction Documents.

 

6.7 Non-Public Information. Except with respect to the material terms and conditions of the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents, the Company covenants and agrees that neither it, nor any other person acting on its behalf, will provide Purchaser or its agents or counsel with any information that the Company believes constitutes material non-public information, unless prior thereto Purchaser shall have executed a written agreement regarding the confidentiality and use of such information. The Company understands and confirms that Purchaser shall be relying on the foregoing covenant in effecting transactions in securities of the Company.

6.8 Permitted Indebtedness. Until one year after the Effective Date, the Company will not incur any Indebtedness.

 

6.9 Acknowledgment of Dilution.

The Company further acknowledges that its obligations under the Transaction Documents, including, without limitation, its obligation to issue the Warrant Shares pursuant to the Transaction Documents, are unconditional and absolute and not subject to any right of set off, counterclaim, delay or reduction, regardless of the effect of any such dilution or any claim the Company may have against any Purchaser and regardless of the dilutive effect that such issuance may have on the ownership of the other stockholders of the Company.

(a) Until no Purchaser owns any Securities, the Company covenants to maintain the registration of the Common Stock under Section 12(b) or 12(g) of the Exchange Act and to timely file (or obtain extensions in respect thereof and file within the applicable grace period) all reports required to be filed by the Company after the date hereof pursuant to the Exchange Act and file such reports even if the Company is not then subject to the reporting requirements of the Exchange Act.

 

(b) At any time commencing on the Initial Closing Date and ending at such time that all of the Securities may be sold without the requirement for the Company to be in compliance with Rule 144(c)(1) and otherwise without restriction or limitation pursuant to Rule 144, if the Company shall fail for any reason to satisfy the current public information requirement under Rule 144(c) (a “Public Information Failure”) then, in addition to such Purchaser’s other available remedies, the Company shall pay to a Purchaser, in cash, as partial liquidated damages and not as a penalty, by reason of any such delay in or reduction of its ability to sell the Securities, an amount in cash equal to two percent (2.0%) of the aggregate Purchase Price held by such Purchaser on the day of a Public Information Failure and on every thirtieth (30th) day (pro-rated for periods totaling less than thirty days) thereafter until the earlier of (a) the date such Public Information Failure is cured and (b) such time that such public information is no longer required for the Purchasers to transfer the Warrant Shares pursuant to Rule 144. The payments to which a Purchaser shall be entitled pursuant to this Section 6.10 are referred to herein as “Public Information Failure Payments.” Public Information Failure Payments shall be paid on the earlier of (i) the last day of the calendar month during which such Public Information Failure Payments are incurred and (ii) the third (3rd) Business Day after the event or failure giving rise to the Public Information Failure Payments is cured. In the event the Company fails to make Public Information Failure Payments in a timely manner, such Public Information Failure Payments shall bear interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (prorated for partial months) until paid in full.

25
 

 

6.12 Exercise Procedures. The form of Notice of Exercise included in the Warrants sets forth the totality of the procedures required of the Purchasers in order to exercise the Warrants. No additional legal opinion, other information or instructions shall be required of the Purchasers to exercise their Warrants. The Company shall honor exercises of the Warrants and shall deliver Warrant Shares in accordance with the terms, conditions and time periods set forth in the Transaction Documents.

 

6.13 Purchase Price Reset.

 

6.13.1 From the date of this Agreement until the sooner of (i) the Purchaser and his permitted assigns no longer holds any Securities, and (ii) two years after the Effective Date (the “Protection Period”), in the event that the Company issues or sells any shares of Common Stock or any Common Stock Equivalent (calculated on an as converted, as exercised basis) pursuant to which shares of Common Stock may be acquired at a price less than the Per Share Purchase Price (a “Share Dilutive Issuance”) (adjusted as described in Section 7.26), then the Company shall promptly issue additional shares of Common Stock to the Purchasers who held outstanding Shares on the date of such Share Dilutive Issuance, for no additional consideration, in an amount sufficient that (a) the aggregate Purchase Price paid at the Initial Closing and the Subsequent Closing, if any, for such outstanding Shares held by Purchasers on the date of such Share Dilutive Issuance (whether or not such Purchasers were the Purchasers at the Initial Closing or the Subsequent Closing, if any), when divided by (x) the sum of (i) the total number of outstanding Shares held by the Purchasers on the date of such Share Dilutive Issuance, (ii) any other shares of Common Stock then or theretofore issued in respect of such outstanding Shares (by stock split, stock dividend or otherwise) that resulted in an adjustment to the Per Share Purchase Price referred to above pursuant to Section 7.26, and (iii) all Additional Shares issued with respect to such outstanding Shares held by the Purchasers on the date of such Share Dilutive Issuance that were issued as a result of Share Dilutive Issuances that occurred prior to such Share Dilutive Issuance, will equal the price per share of Common Stock in such Share Dilutive Issuance, (each such adjustment, a “Share Dilution Adjustment”, and such shares, the “Additional Shares”). The Additional Shares to be issued in a Share Dilution Adjustment shall be issued by the Company to the Purchasers who held outstanding Shares on the date of the applicable Share Dilutive Issuance (in proportion to the number of such Shares held by such Purchasers on the date of such Share Dilutive Issuance). Such Share Dilution Adjustment shall be made successively whenever such an issuance is made. Such Additional Shares must be delivered to the applicable Purchasers not later than the date the Share Dilutive Issuance occurs.

 

6.13.2 From the date of this Agreement until the end of the Protection Period, in the event that the Company issues or sells any shares of Common Stock or any Common Stock Equivalent (calculated on an as converted, as exercised basis) pursuant to which shares of Common Stock may be acquired at a price less than the exercise price per share of Common Stock that was paid during the Protection Period by a Purchaser upon exercise of a Warrant (a “Warrant Dilutive Issuance”) (adjusted as described in Section 7.26), then the Company shall promptly issue additional shares of Common Stock to the Purchasers who on the date of such Warrant Dilutive Issuance held the issued Warrant Shares that were issued upon such exercise, for no additional consideration, in an amount sufficient that (a) the aggregate exercise price paid for such issued Warrant Shares held by the Purchasers on the date of such Warrant Dilutive Issuance (whether or not such Purchasers were the Purchasers who exercised such Warrant), when divided by (x) the sum of (i) the total number of such issued Warrant Shares held by the Purchasers on the date of such Warrant Dilutive Issuance, (ii) any other shares of Common Stock then or theretofore issued in respect of such issued Warrant Shares (by stock split, stock dividend or otherwise) that resulted in an adjustment to the exercise price referred to above pursuant to Section 7.26, and (iii) all Additional Warrant Shares issued with respect to such issued Warrant Shares held by the Purchasers on the date of such Warrant Dilutive Issuance that were issued as a result of Warrant Dilutive Issuances that occurred prior to such Warrant Dilutive Issuance, will equal the price per share of Common Stock in such Warrant Dilutive Issuance, (each such adjustment, a “Warrant Dilution Adjustment”, and such shares, the “Additional Warrant Shares”). The Additional Warrant Shares to be issued in a Warrant Dilution Adjustment shall be issued by the Company to the Purchasers who held the applicable issued Warrant Shares on the date of the applicable Warrant Dilutive Issuance (in proportion to the number of such issued Warrant Shares held by such Purchasers on the date of such Warrant Dilutive Issuance). Such Warrant Dilution Adjustment shall be made successively whenever such an issuance is made. Such Additional Warrant Shares must be delivered to the applicable Purchasers not later than the date the Warrant Dilutive Issuance occurs.

 

26
 

 

6.13.3 Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Section 6.13 shall not apply in respect of an Exempt Issuance. No adjustment shall be made hereunder which would require the Purchaser to surrender any shares to the Company. The holder of outstanding Additional Shares and Additional Warrant Shares is granted the same rights and benefits as a holder of outstanding Shares pursuant to the Transaction Documents, except the rights and benefits of this Section 6.13 and except that such rights and benefits shall not apply to a holder of outstanding Additional Shares or Additional Warrant Shares after such outstanding Additional Share or Additional Warrant Share has been irrevocably sold pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act or pursuant to Rule 144 without further restrictions or conditions to transfer pursuant to Rule 144.

  

6.14 Indemnification of Purchasers. Subject to the provisions of this Section 6.16, the Company will indemnify and hold each Purchaser and its directors, officers, shareholders, members, partners, employees and agents (and any other Persons with a functionally equivalent role of a Person holding such titles notwithstanding a lack of such title or any other title), each Person who controls such Purchaser (within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act and Section 20 of the Exchange Act), and the directors, officers, shareholders, agents, members, partners or employees (and any other Persons with a functionally equivalent role of a Person holding such titles notwithstanding a lack of such title or any other title) of such controlling persons (each, a “Purchaser Party”) harmless from any and all losses, liabilities, obligations, claims, contingencies, damages, costs and expenses, including all judgments, amounts paid in settlements, court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs of investigation that any such Purchaser Party may suffer or incur as a result of or relating to (a) any breach of any of the representations, warranties, covenants or agreements made by the Company in this Agreement or in the other Transaction Documents or (b) any action instituted against Purchaser Parties in any capacity, or any of them or their respective Affiliates, by any stockholder of the Company who is not an Affiliate of such Purchaser Party, with respect to any of the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents (unless such action is based upon a breach of such Purchaser’s Party’s representations, warranties or covenants under the Transaction Documents or any agreements or understandings such Purchaser Party may have with any such stockholder or any violations by such Purchaser Party of state or federal securities laws or any conduct by such Purchaser Party which constitutes fraud, gross negligence, willful misconduct or malfeasance). If any action shall be brought against any Purchaser Party in respect of which indemnity may be sought pursuant to this Agreement, such Purchaser Party shall promptly notify the Company in writing, and the Company shall have the right to assume the defense thereof with counsel of its own choosing reasonably acceptable to the Purchaser Party. Any Purchaser Party shall have the right to employ separate counsel in any such action and participate in the defense thereof, but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be at the expense of such Purchaser Party except to the extent that (i) the employment thereof has been specifically authorized by the Company in writing, (ii) the Company has failed after a reasonable period of time to assume such defense and to employ counsel or (iii) in such action there is, in the reasonable opinion of counsel, a material conflict on any material issue between the position of the Company and the position of such Purchaser Party, in which case the Company shall be responsible for the reasonable fees and expenses of no more than one such separate counsel. The Company will not be liable to any Purchaser Party under this Agreement (y) for any settlement by a Purchaser Party effected without the Company’s prior written consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed; or (z) to the extent, but only to the extent that a loss, claim, damage or liability is attributable to any Purchaser Party’s breach of its representations, warranties or covenants under the Transaction Documents or any agreements or understandings such Purchaser Party may have with any such stockholder or any violations by such Purchaser Party of state or federal securities laws or any conduct by such Purchaser Party which constitutes fraud, gross negligence, willful misconduct or malfeasance. The indemnification required by this Section 6.16 shall be made by periodic payments of the amount thereof during the course of the investigation or defense, as and when bills are received or are incurred however, each Purchaser Party who receives such interim payment agrees to reimburse the Company for any such payment made by the Company to such Purchaser Party if it is finally determined in such action or proceeding that such Purchaser Party is not entitled to indemnification pursuant to this Section 6.16. The indemnity agreements contained herein shall be in addition to any cause of action or similar right of any Purchaser Party against the Company or others and any liabilities the Company may be subject to pursuant to law.

6.15 Reservation and Listing of Securities.

 

6.15.1 The Company shall maintain a reserve from its duly authorized shares of Common Stock for issuance pursuant to the Transaction Documents in such amount as may then be required to fulfill its obligations in full under the Transaction Documents, but not less than the Required Minimum.

 

6.15.2 If, on any date, the number of authorized but unissued (and otherwise unreserved) shares of Common Stock is less than the Required Minimum on such date, then the Board of Directors shall amend the Company’s certificate or articles of incorporation to increase the number of authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock to at least the Required Minimum at such time, as soon as possible and in any event not later than the 60th day after such date.

 

6.15.3 The Company hereby agrees to maintain the listing or quotation of the Common Stock on the Trading Market on which it is currently listed, and concurrently with each Closing, the Company shall apply to list or quote all of the Shares and Warrant Shares at least equal to the Required Minimum on such Trading Market and promptly secure the listing of all of the Shares and Warrant Shares at least equal to the Required Minimum on such Trading Market. The Company further agrees, if the Company applies to have the Common Stock traded on any other Trading Market, it will then include in such application all of the Shares and Warrant Shares at least equal to the Required Minimum, and will take such other action as is necessary to cause all of the Shares and Warrant Shares at least equal to the Required Minimum to be listed or quoted on such other Trading Market as promptly as possible. The Company will then take all action necessary to continue the listing or quotation and trading of its Common Stock on a Trading Market until the later of (i) at least five years after the Closing Date, and (ii) for so long as the Warrants are outstanding, and will comply in all respects with the Company’s reporting, filing and other obligations under the bylaws or rules of the Trading Market at least until five years after the Closing Date and for so long as the Warrants are outstanding. In the event the aforedescribed listing is not continuously maintained for five years after the Closing Date (a “Listing Default”), then in addition to any other rights the Purchasers may have hereunder or under applicable law, on the first day of a Listing Default and on each monthly anniversary of each such Listing Default date (if the applicable Listing Default shall not have been cured by such date) until the applicable Listing Default is cured, the Company shall pay to each Purchaser an amount in cash, as partial liquidated damages and not as a penalty, equal to 2% of the aggregate Purchase Price and purchase price of Warrant Shares held by such Purchaser on the day of a Listing Default and on every thirtieth day (pro-rated for periods less than thirty days) thereafter until the date such Listing Default is cured. If the Company fails to pay any liquidated damages pursuant to this Section in a timely manner, the Company will pay interest thereon at a rate of 1.5% per month (pro-rated for partial months) to the Purchaser.

6.16 Subsequent Equity Sales. Without prior written approval from Holder, from the date hereof until such time as the Common Stock and Warrants are no longer outstanding, the Company will not, without the consent of the Purchasers, enter into any Equity Line of Credit or similar agreement, nor issue nor agree to issue any common stock, floating or Variable Priced Equity Linked Instruments nor any of the foregoing or equity with price reset rights (subject to adjustment for stock splits, distributions, dividends, recapitalizations and the like) (collectively, the “Variable Rate Transaction”).   For purposes hereof, “Equity Line of Credit” shall include any transaction involving a written agreement between the Company and an investor or underwriter whereby the Company has the right to “put” its securities to the investor or underwriter over an agreed period of time and at an agreed price or price formula, and “Variable Priced Equity Linked Instruments” shall include: (A) any debt or equity securities which are convertible into, exercisable or exchangeable for, or carry the right to receive additional shares of Common Stock either (1) at any conversion, exercise or exchange rate or other price that is based upon and/or varies with the trading prices of or quotations for Common Stock at any time after the initial issuance of such debt or equity security, or (2) with a fixed conversion, exercise or exchange price that is subject to being reset at some future date at any time after the initial issuance of such debt or equity security due to a change in the market price of the Company’s Common Stock since date of initial issuance, and (B) any amortizing convertible security which amortizes prior to its maturity date, where the Company is required or has the option to (or any investor in such transaction has the option to require the Company to) make such amortization payments in shares of Common Stock which are valued at a price that is based upon and/or varies with the trading prices of or quotations for Common Stock at any time after the initial issuance of such debt or equity security (whether or not such payments in stock are subject to certain equity conditions).  For purposes of determining the total consideration for a convertible instrument (including a right to purchase equity of the Company) issued, subject to an original issue or similar discount or which principal amount is directly or indirectly increased after issuance, the consideration will be deemed to be the actual cash amount received by the Company in consideration of the original issuance of such convertible instrument. Until twenty-four (24) months after the Effective Date, the Company will not issue any Common Stock or Common Stock Equivalents to those individuals listed on Schedule 6.23 nor will the Company issue any replacement shares of Surrendered Shares except in the amounts and on the terms set forth on Schedule 6.16.

 

6.17 Capital Changes. Until the one year anniversary of the Closing Date, the Company shall not undertake a reverse or forward stock split or reclassification of the Common Stock without 10 days prior written notice to the Purchasers, unless such reverse split is made in conjunction with the listing of the Common Stock on a national securities exchange.

 

29
 

 

6.18 Reimbursement. If any Purchaser becomes involved in any capacity in any Proceeding by or against any Person who is a stockholder of the Company (except as a result of sales, pledges, margin sales and similar transactions by such Purchaser to or with any current stockholder), solely as a result of such Purchaser’s acquisition of the Securities under this Agreement, the Company will reimburse such Purchaser for its reasonable legal and other expenses (including the cost of any investigation preparation and travel in connection therewith) incurred in connection therewith, as such expenses are incurred. The reimbursement obligations of the Company under this paragraph shall be in addition to any liability which the Company may otherwise have, shall extend upon the same terms and conditions to any Affiliates of the Purchasers who are actually named in such action, proceeding or investigation, and partners, directors, agents, employees and controlling persons (if any), as the case may be, of the Purchasers and any such Affiliate, and shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of any successors, assigns, heirs and personal representatives of the Company, the Purchasers and any such Affiliate and any such Person. The Company also agrees that neither the Purchasers nor any such Affiliates, partners, directors, agents, employees or controlling persons shall have any liability to the Company or any Person asserting claims on behalf of or in right of the Company solely as a result of acquiring the Securities under this Agreement.

 

6.19 DTC Program. At all times that Warrants are outstanding, the Company will employ as the transfer agent for the Common Stock and Warrant Shares a participant in the Depository Trust Company Automated Securities Transfer Program and cause the Common Stock to be transferable pursuant to such program.

6.20 Purchaser’s Exercise Limitations. The Company shall not effect any exercise of the option granted to each Purchaser in Section 2.2 of this Agreement, and a Purchaser shall not have the right to exercise any portion of such option, pursuant to Section 2.2 or otherwise, to the extent that after giving effect to such issuance after exercise as set forth on the applicable Exercise Notice, the Purchaser (together with the Purchaser’s Affiliates, and any other Persons acting as a group together with the Purchaser or any of the Purchaser’s Affiliates), would beneficially own in excess of the Beneficial Ownership Limitation (as defined below).  For purposes of the foregoing sentence, the number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Purchaser and its Affiliates shall include the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the option with respect to which such determination is being made, but shall exclude the number of shares of Common Stock which would be issuable upon (i) exercise of the remaining, nonexercised portion of the option beneficially owned by the Purchaser or any of its Affiliates and (ii) exercise or conversion of the unexercised or nonconverted portion of any other securities of the Company (including, without limitation, any other Common Stock Equivalents) subject to a limitation on conversion or exercise analogous to the limitation contained herein beneficially owned by the Purchaser or any of its Affiliates.  Except as set forth in the preceding sentence, for purposes of this Section 6.22, beneficial ownership shall be calculated in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, it being acknowledged by the Purchaser that the Company is not representing to the Purchaser that such calculation is in compliance with Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act and the Purchaser is solely responsible for any schedules required to be filed in accordance therewith. To the extent that the limitation contained in this Section 6.22 applies, the determination of whether the option is exercisable (in relation to other securities owned by the Purchaser together with any Affiliates) and of which portion of the option is exercisable shall be in the sole discretion of the Purchaser, and the submission of an Exercise Notice shall be deemed to be the Purchaser’s determination of whether the option is exercisable (in relation to other securities owned by the Purchaser together with any Affiliates) and of which portion of the option is exercisable, in each case subject to the Beneficial Ownership Limitation. To ensure compliance with this restriction, a Purchaser will be deemed to represent to the Company when it delivers an Exercise Notice that such Exercise Notice has not violated the restrictions set forth in this paragraph, and the Company shall have no obligation to verify or confirm the accuracy of such determination. In addition, a determination as to any group status as contemplated above shall be determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder. For purposes of this Section 6.22, in determining the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock, a Purchaser may rely on the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock as reflected in (A) the Company’s most recent periodic or annual report filed with the Commission, as the case may be, (B) a more recent public announcement by the Company or (C) a more recent written notice by the Company or the Transfer Agent setting forth the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding.  Upon the written or oral request of a Purchaser, the Company shall within two Trading Days confirm orally and in writing to the Purchaser the number of shares of Common Stock then outstanding.  In any case, the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock shall be determined after giving effect to the conversion or exercise of securities of the Company, including the Warrants, by the Purchaser or its Affiliates since the date as of which such number of outstanding shares of Common Stock was reported. The “Beneficial Ownership Limitation” shall be 4.99%, unless a Purchaser elects on its signature page hereto a different amount for its own Beneficial Ownership Limitation (which shall also apply to and supercede the corresponding Beneficial Ownership Limitation as same relates to the Warrants issued to such electing Purchaser) of the number of shares of the Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the issuance of shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the option. The Purchaser, upon not less than 61 days’ prior notice to the Company, may increase or decrease the Beneficial Ownership Limitation provisions of this Section 6.22, provided that the Beneficial Ownership Limitation in no event exceeds 9.99% of the number of shares of the Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the issuance of shares of Common Stock upon exercise of the option held by the Purchaser and the provisions of this Section 6.22 shall continue to apply. Any such increase or decrease will not be effective until the 61st day after such notice is delivered to the Company. The provisions of this paragraph shall be construed and implemented in a manner otherwise than in strict conformity with the terms of this Section 6.22 to correct this paragraph (or any portion hereof) which may be defective or inconsistent with the intended Beneficial Ownership Limitation herein contained or to make changes or supplements necessary or desirable to properly give effect to such limitation. The limitations contained in this paragraph shall apply to a successor holder of the option right.

7.16 Rescission and Withdrawal Right. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in (and without limiting any similar provisions of) any of the other Transaction Documents, whenever any Purchaser exercises a right, election, demand or option under a Transaction Document and the Company does not timely perform its related obligations within the periods therein provided, then such Purchaser may rescind or withdraw, in its sole discretion from time to time upon written notice to the Company, any relevant notice, demand or election in whole or in part without prejudice to its future actions and rights; provided, however, that in the case of a rescission of an exercise of a Warrant, the applicable Purchaser shall be required to return any shares of Common Stock subject to any such rescinded exercise notice concurrently with the return to such Purchaser of the aggregate exercise price paid to the Company for such shares and the restoration of such Purchaser’s right to acquire such shares pursuant to such Purchaser’s Warrant (including, issuance of a replacement warrant certificate evidencing such restored right).

7.18 Remedies. In addition to being entitled to exercise all rights provided herein or granted by law, including recovery of damages, each of the Purchasers and the Company will be entitled to specific performance under the Transaction Documents.  The parties agree that monetary damages may not be adequate compensation for any loss incurred by reason of any breach of obligations contained in the Transaction Documents and hereby agree to waive and not to assert in any action for specific performance of any such obligation the defense that a remedy at law would be adequate.

 

7.19 Payment Set Aside. To the extent that the Company makes a payment or payments to any Purchaser pursuant to any Transaction Document or a Purchaser enforces or exercises its rights thereunder, and such payment or payments or the proceeds of such enforcement or exercise or any part thereof are subsequently invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set aside, recovered from, disgorged by or are required to be refunded, repaid or otherwise restored to the Company, a trustee, receiver or any other Person under any law (including, without limitation, any bankruptcy law, state or federal law, common law or equitable cause of action), then to the extent of any such restoration the obligation or part thereof originally intended to be satisfied shall be revived and continued in full force and effect as if such payment had not been made or such enforcement or setoff had not occurred.

 

7.20 Independent Nature of Purchasers’ Obligations and Rights. The obligations of each Purchaser under any Transaction Document are several and not joint with the obligations of any other Purchaser, and no Purchaser shall be responsible in any way for the performance or non-performance of the obligations of any other Purchaser under any Transaction Document.  Nothing contained herein or in any other Transaction Document, and no action taken by any Purchaser pursuant hereof or thereto, shall be deemed to constitute the Purchasers as a partnership, an association, a joint venture or any other kind of entity, or create a presumption that the Purchasers are in any way acting in concert or as a group with respect to such obligations or the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents.  Each Purchaser shall be entitled to independently protect and enforce its rights, including, without limitation, the rights arising out of this Agreement or out of the other Transaction Documents, and it shall not be necessary for any other Purchaser to be joined as an additional party in any proceeding for such purpose.  Each Purchaser has been represented by its own separate legal counsel in its review and negotiation of the Transaction Documents.  For reasons of administrative convenience only, each Purchaser and its respective counsel have chosen to communicate with the Company through G&M.  G&M does not represent all of the Purchasers.  The Company has elected to provide all Purchasers with the same terms and Transaction Documents for the convenience of the Company and not because it was required or requested to do so by any of the Purchasers. It is expressly understood and agreed that each provision contained in this Agreement and in each other Transaction Document is between the Company and a Purchaser, solely, and not between the Company and the Purchasers collectively and not between and among the Purchasers.

 

35
 

 

7.21 Liquidated Damages. The Company’s obligations to pay any partial liquidated damages or other amounts owing under the Transaction Documents is a continuing obligation of the Company and shall not terminate until all unpaid partial liquidated damages and other amounts due thereunder have been paid notwithstanding the fact that the instrument or security pursuant to which such partial liquidated damages or other amounts are due and payable shall have been canceled.

 

7.22 Saturdays, Sundays, Holidays, etc. If the last or appointed day for the taking of any action or the expiration of any right required or granted herein shall not be a Business Day, then such action may be taken or such right may be exercised on the next succeeding Business Day.

 

7.23 Construction. The parties agree that each of them and/or their respective counsel have reviewed and had an opportunity to revise the Transaction Documents and, therefore, the normal rule of construction to the effect that any ambiguities are to be resolved against the drafting party shall not be employed in the interpretation of the Transaction Documents or any amendments thereto. In addition, each and every reference to share prices and shares of Common Stock in any Transaction Document shall be subject to adjustment for reverse and forward stock splits, stock dividends, stock combinations and other similar transactions of the Common Stock that occur after the date of this Agreement.

 

7.24 Usury. To the extent it may lawfully do so, the Company hereby agrees not to insist upon or plead or in any manner whatsoever claim, and will resist any and all efforts to be compelled to take the benefit or advantage of, usury laws wherever enacted, now or at any time hereafter in force, in connection with any claim, action or proceeding that may be brought by any Purchaser in order to enforce any right or remedy under any Transaction Document. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary contained in any Transaction Document, it is expressly agreed and provided that the total liability of the Company under the Transaction Documents for payments in the nature of interest shall not exceed the maximum lawful rate authorized under applicable law (the “Maximum Rate”), and, without limiting the foregoing, in no event shall any rate of interest or default interest, or both of them, when aggregated with any other sums in the nature of interest that the Company may be obligated to pay under the Transaction Documents exceed such Maximum Rate. It is agreed that if the maximum contract rate of interest allowed by law and applicable to the Transaction Documents is increased or decreased by statute or any official governmental action subsequent to the date hereof, the new maximum contract rate of interest allowed by law will be the Maximum Rate applicable to the Transaction Documents from the Initial Closing Date thereof forward, unless such application is precluded by applicable law. If under any circumstances whatsoever, interest in excess of the Maximum Rate is paid by the Company to any Purchaser with respect to indebtedness evidenced by the Transaction Documents, such excess shall be applied by such Purchaser to the unpaid principal balance of any such indebtedness or be refunded to the Company, the manner of handling such excess to be at such Purchaser’s election.

 

7.25 WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL.  IN ANY ACTION, SUIT, OR PROCEEDING IN ANY JURISDICTION BROUGHT BY ANY PARTY AGAINST ANY OTHER PARTY, THE PARTIES EACH KNOWINGLY AND INTENTIONALLY, TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, HEREBY ABSOLUTELY, UNCONDITIONALLY, IRREVOCABLY AND EXPRESSLY WAIVES FOREVER TRIAL BY JURY.
