Manner of Exercise. This Warrant is exercisable by the Holder in whole or in part, at any time and from time to time, during the Term, by the surrender of this Warrant and the Notice of Exercise annexed hereto, duly completed and executed on behalf of the Holder, to the Secretary of the Company at the office of the Company (or such other office or agency of the Company as it may designate by notice in writing to the Holder at the address of the Holder appearing on the books of the Company), provided that the Holder shall also deliver to the Company, concurrent with such surrender, a check payable in lawful money of the United States for the aggregate Exercise Price for the Warrant Shares being purchased.

 

3.2.

This Warrant shall be deemed to have been exercised immediately prior to the close of business on the date of its surrender for exercise as provided above, and the person entitled to receive the Warrant Shares issuable upon such exercise shall be treated for all purposes as the holder of record of such shares as of the close of business on such date. As promptly as practicable on or after such date and in any event within thirty (30) days thereafter, the Company at its expense shall issue and deliver to the person or persons entitled to receive the same a certificate or certificates for the number of shares issuable upon such exercise. In the event that this Warrant is exercised in part, the Company at its expense will execute and deliver a new Warrant of like tenor exercisable for the remaining number of shares for which this Warrant may then be exercised.

4.

No Fractional Shares or Scrip. No fractional shares or scrip representing fractional share shall be issued upon the exercise of this Warrant. In lieu of any fractional share to which the Holder would otherwise be entitled, the Company shall round up such fraction to the nearest whole number.

5.

Replacement of Warrant. On receipt of evidence reasonably satisfactory to the Company of the loss, theft, destruction, or mutilation of this Warrant and, in the case of loss, theft, or destruction, on delivery of an indemnity agreement reasonably satisfactory in form and substance to the Company or, in the case of mutilation, on surrender and cancellation of this Warrant, the Company at its expense shall execute and deliver, in lieu of this Warrant, a new warrant of like tenor and amount.

6.

Compliance with Securities Laws. This Warrant may not be transferred or assigned in whole or in part without compliance with all applicable federal and state securities laws by the transferor and the transferee.

 

6.1.

The Holder of this Warrant, by acceptance hereof, acknowledges that (i) this Warrant and the Warrant Shares to be issued upon exercise hereof are being acquired solely for the Holder’s own account and not as an agent or nominee for any other party, and for investment; (ii) the Holder will not offer, sell or otherwise dispose of this Warrant or any Warrant Shares except under circumstances that will not result in a

violation of any federal securities laws, including without limitation the Act, any state securities laws or any applicable securities law of foreign jurisdictions, or any rules or regulations promulgated thereunder; and (iii) such Holder is either an “accredited investor” within the meaning of Securities and Exchange Commission Rule 501 of Regulation D, as presently in effect or is not a U.S. Person, as defined by Regulation S promulgated under the Act.

 

6.2.

Unless the Warrant Shares have been registered under the Act, all shares issuable hereunder shall bear the following legend: THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS WARRANT HAVE BEEN ACQUIRED FOR INVESTMENT AND HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED. THESE SECURITIES MAY NOT BE SOLD OR TRANSFERRED IN THE ABSENCE OF SUCH REGISTRATION OR AN EXEMPTION THEREFROM UNDER SAID ACT.

7.

Reservation of Stock. The Company covenants that during the Term this Warrant is exercisable, the Company will reserve from its authorized and unissued Common Stock a sufficient number of shares to provide for the issuance of common Stock upon the exercise of this Warrant and, from time to time, will take all steps necessary to provide sufficient reserves of shares of the Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of the Warrant. The Company further covenants that all Warrant Shares will be duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable, and will be free from all taxes, liens and preemptive rights in respect of the issue thereof (other than taxes in respect of any transfer occurring contemporaneously or otherwise specified herein). The Company agrees that its issuance of this Warrant shall constitute full authority to its officers who are charged with the duty of executing stock certificates to execute and issue the necessary certificates for the Warrant Shares issued upon the exercise of this Warrant.

8.

Amendments and Waivers. This Warrant is being issued as one of a series of warrants issued by the Company on the date hereof and, accordingly, any term of this Warrant may be amended and the observance of any term of this Warrant may be waived (either generally or in a particular instance and either retroactively or prospectively) with the written consent of the Company and the holder of this Warrant. Any amendment or waiver effected in such manner shall be effective to modify or waive the provisions of this Warrant. No waivers of, or exceptions to any term, condition or provision of this Warrant, in any one or more instances, shall be deemed to be, or construed as, a further or continuing waiver of any such term, condition or provision.

9.

Adjustments. The Exercise Price and the number of Warrant Shares purchasable hereunder are subject to adjustment from time to time during the Term of this Warrant as follows:

 

9.1.

Reclassification. If the Company at any time while this Warrant, or any portion thereof, remains outstanding and un-expired shall, by reorganization or reclassification of securities or otherwise (including in connection with any anti-dilution adjustments), change any of the

 

3

 



 

securities as to which purchase rights under this Warrant exist into the same or a different number of securities of any other class or classes, this Warrant shall thereafter represent the right to acquire such number and kind of securities as would have been issuable as the result of such change with respect to the securities which were subject to the purchase rights under this Warrant immediately prior to such reorganization or reclassification or other change and the Exercise Price then in effect shall, concurrently with the effectiveness of such reorganization or reclassification, be proportionately adjusted (provided the aggregate purchase price shall remain the same) such that this Warrant shall be exercisable into, in lieu of the number of Warrant Shares which the Holder would otherwise have been entitled to receive, a number of shares of such other class or classes of stock that would have been subject to receipt by the Holder had the Holder exercised the Warrant immediately before that change. In any such case appropriate provisions shall be made with respect to the rights and interest of the Holder so that the provisions hereof shall thereafter be applicable with respect to any shares of stock or other securities and property deliverable upon exercise hereof.

9.2.

Split, Subdivision or Combination of Shares. If the Company at any time while this Warrant, or any portion hereof, remains outstanding and un-expired shall split, subdivide or combine the securities as to which purchase rights under this Warrant exist, into a different number of securities of the same class, the Exercise Price for such securities shall be proportionately decreased and the number of securities issuable upon exercise proportionately increased in the case of a split or subdivision or the Exercise Price of such securities shall be proportionately increased and the number of securities issuable upon exercise proportionately decreased in the case of a combination. Any adjustment under this Section 9.2 shall become effective concurrently with the subdivision or combination becomes effective.

9.3.

Adjustments for Dividends in Stock or Other Securities or Property. If, while this Warrant, or any portion hereof, remains outstanding and un-expired, the holders of the securities as to which purchase rights under this Warrant exist at the time shall have received, or, on or after the record date fixed for the determination of eligible stockholders, shall have become entitled to receive, without payment therefor, other or additional stock or other securities or property of the Company by way of dividend or otherwise, then and in each case, this Warrant shall represent the right to acquire, in addition to the number of shares of the security receivable upon the exercise of this Warrant, and without payment of any additional consideration thereof, the amount of such other or additional stock or other securities or property as aforesaid of the Company which such Holder would hold on the date of such exercise had it been the holder of record of the security receivable upon exercise of this Warrant on the date hereof and had thereafter, during the period from the date hereof to and including the date of such exercise, retained such shares and/or all other additional stock available

by it as aforesaid during such period, giving effect to all adjustments called for during such period by the provisions of this Section 9. Any adjustment under this Section 9.3 shall become effective as of the record date of such dividend, or in the event that no record date is fixed, upon the making of such dividend.

 

9.4.

Certificate as to Adjustments. Upon the occurrence of each adjustment or readjustment pursuant to this Section 9, the Company shall, upon the written request of any holder of this Warrant, furnish or cause to be furnished to such holder a certificate setting forth: (i) such adjustments and readjustments; (ii) the Exercise Price at the time in effect; and (iii) the number of shares and the amount, if any, of other property which at the time would be received upon the exercise of the Warrant.
