     Section 3.01. Draw Down Notice. The Company, may, in its sole discretion, issue a Draw Down Notice (defined below) specifying the dollar amount of Shares it elects to sell to the Investor (each such election a “Draw Down”) up to a Draw Down Amount equal to the Maximum Draw Down Amount during the Commitment Period, which Draw Down the Investor will be obligated to accept. The Company shall inform the Investor in writing via facsimile transmission, with a copy to the Investor’s counsel, as to such Draw Down Amount before commencement of trading on the first Trading Day of the related Draw Down Pricing Period (the “Draw Down Notice”). In addition to the Draw Down Amount, each Draw Down Notice shall designate the first Trading Day of the Draw Down Pricing Period. In no event shall any Draw Down Amount exceed the Maximum Draw Down Amount. Each Draw Down Notice shall be accompanied by a certificate, signed by the Chief Executive Officer or Chief Financial Officer dated, as of the date of such Draw Down Notice, in the form of Exhibit C hereof.
     Section 3.02. Number of Shares. Subject to Section 3.06(b), the number of Shares to be issued in connection with each Draw Down shall be equal to the sum of the number of shares issuable on each Trading Day of the Draw Down Pricing Period. The number of shares issuable on a Trading Day during a Draw Down Pricing Period shall be equal to the quotient of one eighth (1/8th) of the Draw Down Amount divided by the Draw Down Discount Price for such Trading Day.
     Section 3.03. Limitation on Draw Downs. Only one Draw Down shall be permitted for each Draw Down Pricing Period.
     Section 3.04. Trading Cushion. Unless the parties agree in writing otherwise, there shall be a minimum of three (3) Trading Days between the expiration of any Draw Down Pricing Period and the beginning of the next succeeding Draw Down Pricing Period.
     Section 3.05. Settlement. The number of Shares purchased by the Investor in any Draw Down shall be determined and settled on two separate dates. Shares purchased by the Investor during the first four Trading Days of any Draw Down Pricing Period shall be determined and settled no later than the sixth Trading Day of such Draw Down Pricing Period. Shares purchased by the Investor during the second four Trading Days of any Draw Down Pricing Period shall be determined and settled no later than the second Trading Day after the last Trading Day of such Draw Down Pricing Period. Each date on which settlement of the purchase and sale of Shares occurs hereunder being referred to as a “Settlement Date.” The Investor shall provide the Company with delivery instructions for the Shares to be issued at each Settlement Date at least two Trading Days in advance of such Settlement Date. The number of Shares actually issued shall be rounded to the nearest whole number of Shares.
     Section 3.06. Delivery of Shares; Payment of Draw Down Amount.
     (a) On each Settlement Date, the Company shall deliver the Shares purchased by the Investor to the Investor or its designees exclusively via book-entry through the DTC to an account designated by the Investor, and upon receipt of the Shares, the Investor shall cause

6


 

payment therefor to be made to the Company’s designated account by wire transfer of immediately available funds, if the Shares are received by the Investor no later than 1:00 p.m. (Eastern Time), or next day available funds, if the Shares are received thereafter.
     (b) For each Trading Day during a Draw Down Pricing Period that the VWAP is less than the greater of (i) 85% of the Closing Price of the Company’s Common Stock on the Trading Day immediately preceding the commencement of such Draw Down Pricing Period, or (ii) $3.50, such Trading Day shall not be used in calculating the number of Shares to be issued in connection with such Draw Down, and the Draw Down Amount in respect of such Draw Down Pricing Period shall be reduced by one eighth (1/8th) of the initial Draw Down Amount specified in the Draw Down Notice. If trading in the Company’s Common Stock is suspended for any reason for more than three (3) consecutive or non-consecutive hours during any Trading Day during a Draw Down Pricing Period, such Trading Day shall not be used in calculating the number of Shares to be issued in connection with such Draw Down, and the Draw Down Amount in respect of such Draw Down Pricing Period shall be reduced by one eighth (1/8th) of the initial Draw Down Amount specified in the Draw Down Notice.
     Section 3.07. Failure to Deliver Shares. If on any Settlement Date, the Company fails to take all actions within the reasonable control of the Company to cause the delivery of the Shares purchased by the Investor, and such failure is not cured within two (2) Trading Days following such Settlement Date, the Company shall pay to the Investor on demand in cash by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account designated by the Investor the “Make Whole Amount;” provided, however, that in the event that the Company is prevented from delivering Shares in respect of any such Settlement Date in a timely manner by any fact or circumstance that is reasonably within the control of, or directly attributable to, the Investor, then such two (2) Trading Day period shall be automatically extended until such time as such fact or circumstance is cured. As used herein, the Make Whole Amount shall be an amount equal to the sum of (i) the Draw Down Amount actually paid by the Investor in respect of such Shares plus (ii) an amount equal to the actual loss suffered by the Investor in respect of sales to subsequent purchasers, pursuant to transactions entered into before the Settlement Date, of the Shares that were required to be delivered by the Company, which shall be based upon documentation reasonably satisfactory to the Company demonstrating the difference (if greater than zero) between (A) the price per share paid by the Investor to purchase such number of shares of Common Stock necessary for the Investor to meet its share delivery obligations to such subsequent purchasers minus (B) the average Draw Down Discount Price during the applicable Draw Down Pricing Period. In the event that the Make Whole Amount is not paid within two (2) Trading Days following a demand therefor from the Investor, the Make Whole Amount shall accrue interest compounded daily at a rate of five percent (5%) per annum up to and including the date on which the Make Whole Amount is actually paid. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Agreement, in the event that the Company pays the Make Whole Amount (plus interest, if applicable) in respect of any Settlement Date in accordance with this Section 3.07, such payment shall be the Investor’s sole remedy in respect of the Company’s failure to deliver Shares in respect of such Settlement Date, and the Company shall not be obligated to deliver such Shares.

ARTICLE VIII
TERMINATION
     Section 8.01. Term. Unless otherwise terminated in accordance with Section 8.02 below, this Agreement shall terminate upon the earlier to occur of (i) the expiration of the Commitment Period or (ii) the issuance of Shares pursuant to this Agreement in an amount equal to the Maximum Commitment Amount.
     Section 8.02. Other Termination.
     (a) The Investor may terminate this Agreement upon (x) one (1) business day’s notice if the Company enters into any Prohibited Transaction as set forth in Section 6.07 without the Investor’s prior written consent, or (y) one (1) business day’s notice if the Investor provides written notice of a Material Adverse Effect to the Company, and such Material Adverse Effect continues for a period of ten (10) Trading Days after the receipt by the Company of such notice.
     (b) The Investor may terminate this Agreement upon one (1) business day’s notice to the Company at any time in the event that the Registration Statement is not initially declared effective in accordance with the Registration Rights Agreement, provided, however, that in the event the Registration Statement is declared effective prior to the delivery of such notice, the Investor shall thereafter have no right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 8.02(b).
     (c) The Company may terminate this Agreement upon one (1) business day’s notice; provided, however, that the Company shall not terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 8.02(c) during any Draw Down Pricing Period; provided further; that, in the event of any termination of this Agreement by the Company hereunder, so long as the Investor owns Shares purchased hereunder and/or Warrant Shares, unless all of such shares of Common Stock may be resold by the Investor without registration and without any time, volume or manner limitations pursuant to Rule 144(k) (or any similar provision then in effect) under the Securities Act, the Company shall not suspend or withdraw the Registration Statement or otherwise cause the Registration Statement to become ineffective, or voluntarily delist the Common Stock from, the Principal Market without listing the Common Stock on another Principal Market.
     (d) Each of the parties hereto may terminate this Agreement upon one (1) day’s notice if the other party has breached a material representation, warranty or covenant to this Agreement and such breach is not remedied within ten (10) Trading Days after notice of such breach is delivered to the breaching party.

Nothing in this Section 8.03 shall be deemed to release the Company or the Investor from any liability for any

19


 

breach under this Agreement occurring prior to such termination, or to impair the rights of the Company and the Investor to compel specific performance by the other party of its obligations under this Agreement arising prior to such termination.
ARTICLE IX
INDEMNIFICATION
     Section 9.01. Indemnification.
     (a) Except as otherwise provided in this Article IX, unless disputed as set forth in Section 9.02, the Company agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Investor and its affiliates and their respective officers, directors, agents, employees, subsidiaries, partners, members and controlling persons (each, an “Investor Indemnified Party”), to the fullest extent permitted by law from and against any and all Damages directly resulting from or directly arising out of any breach of any representation or warranty, covenant or agreement by the Company in this Agreement, the Registration Rights Agreement or the Warrant; provided, however, that the Company shall not be liable under this Article IX to an Investor Indemnified Party to the extent that such Damages resulted or arose from the breach by an Investor Indemnified Party of any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement of an Investor Indemnified Party contained in this Agreement, the Registration Rights Agreement or the Warrant or the negligence, recklessness, willful misconduct or bad faith of an Investor Indemnified Party. The parties intend that any Damages subject to indemnification pursuant to this Article IX will be net of insurance proceeds (which the Investor Indemnified Party agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to recover). Accordingly, the amount which the Company is required to pay to any Investor Indemnified Party hereunder (a “Company Indemnity Payment”) will be reduced by any insurance proceeds actually recovered by or on behalf of any Investor Indemnified Party in reduction of the related Damages. In addition, if an Investor Indemnified Party receives a Company Indemnity Payment required by this Article IX in respect of any Damages and subsequently receives any such insurance proceeds, then the Investor Indemnified Party will pay to the Company an amount equal to the Company Indemnity Payment received less the amount of the Company Indemnity Payment that would have been due if the insurance proceeds had been received, realized or recovered before the Company Indemnity Payment was made.
     (b) Except as otherwise provided in this Article IX, unless disputed as set forth in Section 9.02, the Investor agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Company and its affiliates and their respective officers, directors, agents, employees, subsidiaries, partners, members and controlling persons (each, a “Company Indemnified Party”), to the fullest extent permitted by law from and against any and all Damages directly resulting from or directly arising out of any breach of any representation or warranty, covenant or agreement by the Investor in this Agreement, the Registration Rights Agreement or the Warrant; provided, however, that the Investor shall not be liable under this Article IX to a Company Indemnified Party to the extent that such Damages resulted or arose from the breach by a Company Indemnified Party of any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement of a Company Indemnified Party contained in this Agreement, the Registration Rights Agreement or the Warrant or negligence, recklessness, willful misconduct or bad faith of a Company Indemnified Party. The parties intend that any Damages subject to indemnification pursuant to this Article IX will be net of insurance proceeds (which the Company agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to recover). Accordingly, the amount which the Investor is required to pay to any Company Indemnified Party hereunder (an “Investor Indemnity Payment”) will be reduced by any insurance proceeds theretofore actually recovered by or on behalf of any Company Indemnified Party in reduction of the related

20


 

Damages. In addition, if a Company Indemnified Party receives an Investor Indemnity Payment required by this Article IX in respect of any Damages and subsequently receives any such insurance proceeds, then the Company Indemnified Party will pay to the Investor an amount equal to the Investor Indemnity Payment received less the amount of the Investor Indemnity Payment that would have been due if the insurance proceeds had been received, realized or recovered before the Investor Indemnity Payment was made.
     Section 9.02. Notification of Claims for Indemnification. Each party entitled to indemnification under this Article IX (an “Indemnified Party”) shall, promptly after the receipt of notice of the commencement of any claim against such Indemnified Party in respect of which indemnity may be sought from the party obligated to indemnify such Indemnified Party under this Article IX (the “Indemnifying Party”), notify the Indemnifying Party in writing of the commencement thereof. Any such notice shall describe the claim in reasonable detail. The failure of any Indemnified Party to so notify the Indemnifying Party of any such action shall not relieve the Indemnifying Party from any liability which it may have to such Indemnified Party (a) other than pursuant to this Article IX or (b) under this Article IX unless, and only to the extent that, such failure results in the Indemnifying Party’s forfeiture of substantive rights or defenses or the Indemnifying Party is prejudiced by such delay. The procedures listed below shall govern the procedures for the handling of indemnification claims.
     (a) Any claim for indemnification for Damages that do not result from a Third Party Claim as defined in the following paragraph, shall be asserted by written notice given by the Indemnified Party to the Indemnifying Party. Such Indemnifying Party shall have a period of thirty (30) days after the receipt of such notice within which to respond thereto. If such Indemnifying Party does not respond within such thirty (30) day period, such Indemnifying Party shall be deemed to have refused to accept responsibility to make payment as set forth in Section 9.01. If such Indemnifying Party does not respond within such thirty (30) day period or rejects such claim in whole or in part, the Indemnified Party shall be free to pursue such remedies as specified in this Agreement.
     (b) If an Indemnified Party shall receive notice or otherwise learn of the assertion by a person or entity not a party to this Agreement of any threatened legal action or claim (collectively a “Third Party Claim”), with respect to which an Indemnifying Party may be obligated to provide indemnification, the Indemnified Party shall give such Indemnifying Party written notice thereof within twenty (20) days after becoming aware of such Third Party Claim.
     (c) An Indemnifying Party may elect to defend (and, unless the Indemnifying Party has specified any reservations or exceptions, to seek to settle or compromise) at such Indemnifying Party’s own expense and by such Indemnifying Party’s own counsel, any Third Party Claim. Within thirty (30) days after the receipt of notice from an Indemnified Party (or sooner if the nature of such Third Party Claim so requires), the Indemnifying Party shall notify the Indemnified Party whether the Indemnifying Party will assume responsibility for defending such Third Party Claim, which election shall specify any reservations or exceptions. If such Indemnifying Party does not respond within such thirty (30) day period or rejects such claim in whole or in part, the Indemnified Party shall be free to pursue such remedies as specified in this Agreement. In case any such Third Party Claim shall be brought against any Indemnified Party, and it shall notify the Indemnifying Party of the commencement thereof, the Indemnifying Party shall be entitled to assume the defense thereof at its own expense, with counsel satisfactory to such Indemnified Party in its reasonable judgment; provided, however, that any Indemnified Party may, at its own expense, retain separate counsel to participate in such defense at its own expense. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in any Third Party Claim in which both the

21


 

Indemnifying Party, on the one hand, and an Indemnified Party, on the other hand, are, or are reasonably likely to become, a party, such Indemnified Party shall have the right to employ separate counsel and to control its own defense of such claim if, in the reasonable opinion of counsel to such Indemnified Party, either (x) one or more significant defenses are available to the Indemnified Party that are not available to the Indemnifying Party or (y) a conflict or potential conflict exists between the Indemnifying Party, on the one hand, and such Indemnified Party, on the other hand, that would make such separate representation advisable; provided, however, that in such circumstances the Indemnifying Party (i) shall not be liable for the fees and expenses of more than one counsel to all Indemnified Parties and (ii) shall reimburse the Indemnified Parties for such reasonable fees and expenses of such counsel incurred in any such Third Party Claim, as such expenses are incurred, provided that the Indemnified Parties agree to repay such amounts if it is ultimately determined that the Indemnifying Party was not obligated to provide indemnification under this Article IX. The Indemnifying Party agrees that it will not compromise or consent to the entry of any judgment in any pending or threatened claim relating to the matters contemplated hereby (if any Indemnified Party is a party thereto or has been actually threatened to be made a party thereto) unless such settlement, compromise or consent includes an unconditional release of such Indemnified Party from all liability arising or that may arise out of such claim. The rights accorded to an Indemnified Party hereunder shall be in addition to any rights that any Indemnified Party may have at common law, by separate agreement or otherwise; provided, however, that notwithstanding the foregoing or anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, nothing in this Article IX shall restrict or limit any rights that any Indemnified Party may have to seek equitable relief.
ARTICLE X
MISCELLANEOUS
     Section 10.01. Fees and Expenses.
     (a) Each of the Company and the Investor agrees to pay its own expenses incident to the performance of its obligations hereunder, except that the Company shall be solely responsible for (i) all reasonable attorneys fees and expenses incurred by the Investor in connection with the preparation, negotiation, execution and delivery of this Agreement, the Registration Rights Agreement and the Warrant, and review of the Registration Statement, and in connection with any amendments, modifications or waivers of this Agreement, including, without limitation, all reasonable attorneys fees and expenses, and (ii) all reasonable fees and expenses incurred in connection with the Investor’s enforcement of this Agreement, including, without limitation, all reasonable attorneys fees and expenses, and (iii) due diligence expenses incurred by the Investor during the term of this Agreement equal to $12,500 per calendar quarter, provided that such $12,500 shall not be payable in respect of any calendar quarter following the calendar quarter during which the Company shall have issued and sold Common Stock hereunder during the term of this Agreement in aggregate Draw Down Amounts equal to or exceeding $25 million, and (v) all stamp or other similar taxes and duties, if any, levied in connection with issuance of the Shares pursuant hereto; provided, however, that in each of the above instances the Investor shall provide customary supporting invoices or similar documentation in reasonable detail describing such expenses, and provided further that the maximum aggregate amount payable by the Company pursuant to clause (i) above shall be $75,000 and the Investor shall bear all fees and expenses in excess of $75,000 incurred in connection with the events described under clause (i) above.

22


 

     (b) If any action at law or in equity is necessary to enforce or interpret the terms of this Agreement, the Registration Rights Agreement or the Warrant, the prevailing party shall be entitled to reasonable fees, costs and necessary disbursements in addition to any other relief to which such party may be entitied.
     Section 10.02. Reporting Entity for the Common Stock. The reporting entity relied upon for the determination of the trading price or trading volume of the Common Stock on any given Trading Day for the purposes of this Agreement shall be Bloomberg, L.P. or any successor thereto. The written mutual consent of the Investor and the Company shall be required to employ any other reporting entity.
     Section 10.03. Brokerage. Each of the parties hereto represents that it has had no dealings in connection with this transaction with any finder or broker who will demand payment of any fee or commission from the other party. The Company on the one hand, and the Investor, on the other hand, agree to indemnify the other against and hold the other harmless from any and all liabilities to any Persons claiming brokerage commissions or finder’s fees on account of services purported to have been rendered on behalf of the indemnifying party in connection with this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby.
