Unit Subscription Agreement

 

EXHIBIT 10.1

 

UNIT SUBSCRIPTION AGREEMENT

 

The undersigned (hereinafter the “Subscriber”) hereby confirms the Subscriber’s subscription for the purchase of Units consisting of (i) one share of Common Stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), of AETHLON MEDICAL, INC., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), and (ii) a seven-year warrant to purchase such number of shares of Common Stock of the Company as shall equal (a) fifty percent of the Subscription Amount set forth on the signature page hereto divided by (b) $0.08 (the "Warrant Shares") at an exercise price of $0.12 per Warrant Share, in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A (each, a “Warrant” and collectively, the “Warrants”) on the terms described below.

 

The Units are sometimes referred to herein as the “Securities.” The Board of Directors of the Company has authorized the issuance and sale of up to $5,000,000 of Units to be sold on or before December 31, 2012.

 

In connection with this subscription, the Subscriber and the Company agree as follows:

 

A.            Subscription of the Subscriber.

 

1.            Purchase of Units. The Subscriber hereby irrevocably agrees, represents and warrants with, to and for the benefit of the Company, that the Subscriber is executing this Agreement in connection with the subscription by the Subscriber for Units of the Company, resulting in the aggregate purchase price set forth on the Subscriber’s signature page hereto based upon the Issue Price (as defined herein). The Subscriber understands that the Company is relying upon the accuracy and completeness of the information contained herein in complying with its obligations under federal and state securities and other applicable laws. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, upon execution and delivery hereof by the Subscriber, the Subscriber hereby agrees to purchase the Units pursuant to the transaction hereof, and against concurrent delivery of the purchase price for such shares. The date upon which the final subscription is accepted by the Company and the full Issue Price has been tendered to the Company, shall be known as the “Closing Date.”

 

2.            Offering. This offering of the Units (the “Offering”) is being made to a limited group of investors, all of whom shall represent to the Company pursuant to this Agreement that they are “accredited investors,” as that term is defined in Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) or who have otherwise been qualified as investors by the Company. All of the Units offered hereby are being sold by the Company. The Company is offering the Units for the consideration set forth herein. The Company may sell less than all of the Units offered hereby, and shall be entitled to accept subscriptions and receive the Issue Price for each subscription prior to the entire Offering being subscribed for. The Offering is being made on a “best efforts” basis. The minimum subscription amount per investor is $10,000. The maximum offering by the Company is $5,000,000 worth of Units.

 

3.            Issue Price. The “Issue Price” of the Units shall be equal to 80% of the average of the closing prices of the Company’s Common Stock for the five day period immediately preceding each funding under this Unit Subscription Agreement (for example, if the average of the five trailing closing prices is $0.10, then the Issue Price would be $0.08). The number of Warrant Shares will be based upon the same Issue Price formula with the exercise price being set at 120% of the average of the closing prices over the same five day period immediately preceding the funding. However, the Company reserves the right to not accept subscriptions if it deems the Issue Price on those subscriptions to be unacceptable based on the price of the Company’s Common Stock at that time.

B.            Representations and Warranties of the Subscriber. The Subscriber hereby represents and warrants to the Company as of the date hereof:

 

1.            Place of Business. The principal place of business address (or residence) set forth below is the Subscriber’s true and correct principal place of business and is the only jurisdiction in which an offer to sell the Units was made to the Subscriber, and the Subscriber has no present intention of moving the Subscriber’s principal place of business to or of becoming a resident of any other state or jurisdiction.

 

2.            Sale or Transfer of the Common Stock . The Subscriber understands that the Common Stock and the shares underlying the Warrants have not been registered under the Securities Act, or under the laws of any other jurisdiction. The Subscriber understands and agrees that transfer or sale of the Common Stock and the shares underlying the Warrants may be restricted or prohibited unless they are subsequently registered under the Securities Act and, where required, under the laws of other jurisdictions or an exemption from registration is available. The Subscriber will not offer, sell, transfer or assign the Subscriber’s Common Stock or any interest therein and the shares underlying the Warrants in contravention of this Agreement, the Securities Act or any state or federal law. The Subscriber understands and acknowledges that, because of the substantial restrictions on the transferability of the Common Stock and the shares underlying the Warrants, it may not be possible for the Subscriber to liquidate the Subscriber's investment in the Company readily, even in the case of an emergency.

 

3.            Representations of Investment Experience and Ability to Bear Risk. The Subscriber acknowledges that the Offering has not been registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (or any other securities commission or authority of any other jurisdiction) because the Company is relying on an exemption from registration under Section 4(2) of the Securities Act. Own Advice. In connection with the Subscriber’s investment in the Company, the Subscriber has carefully considered and has discussed, to the extent the Subscriber believes such discussion necessary, with the Subscriber’s professional legal, tax and financial advisers (the “Investment Advisors”) the suitability of an investment in the Units for the Subscriber’s particular tax and financial situation and the Subscriber has determined that the Units are a suitable investment for the Subscriber.

 

4.            Company History; Risks. The Subscriber represents and warrants that the Subscriber is aware (i) that the Company has limited or no revenues; (ii) that the Units involve a substantial degree of risk of loss of the Subscriber’s entire investment and that there is no assurance of any income from the Subscriber's investment; and (iii) that any federal and/or state income tax benefits that may be available to the Subscriber, if any, may be lost through the adoption of new laws or regulations, to changes to existing laws and regulations and to changes in the interpretation of existing laws and regulations. The Subscriber further represents that the Subscriber is relying solely on the Subscriber’s own conclusions or the advice of the Subscriber’s Investment Advisors with respect to tax aspects of any investment in the Units. The Subscriber further represents that it has read and reviewed the Company’s filings made with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

 

5.            Inquiries. The Subscriber and its Investment Advisors have been given access to, and prior to the execution of this Agreement, have been provided with an opportunity to ask questions of, and receive answers from, the Company’s officers concerning the Company and the terms and conditions of the Offering and the Units, and to obtain any other information that the Subscriber and the Subscriber’s Investment Advisors required with respect to the Company and an investment in the Company in order to evaluate such investment and verify the accuracy of all information furnished to the Subscriber and its Investment Advisors regarding the Company. All such questions, if asked, were answered satisfactorily and all information or documents provided were found to be satisfactory. Neither the Subscriber nor its Investment Advisors have been furnished any offering literature on which they have relied other this Agreement, and the Subscriber and its Investment Advisors have relied only on this Agreement. At no time was the Subscriber presented with or solicited by any leaflet, public promotion meeting, newspaper or magazine article, radio or television advertisement or any other form of general advertising or general solicitation.

7.            No Default. The execution and delivery of this Agreement and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby will not conflict with, or result in any violation of or default pursuant to, any provision of any governing instrument applicable to the Subscriber, or any agreement or other instrument to which the Subscriber is a party or by which the Subscriber or any of the Subscriber’s properties are bound or any permit, franchise, judgment, decree, statute, rule or regulation applicable to the Subscriber or any of the Subscriber’s business or properties.

 

8.            ERISA. If the Subscriber is an employee benefit plan subject to ERISA, then the Subscriber acknowledges that the Subscriber has been informed of and understands the operations and business of the Company, and represents that the Subscriber’s investment in the Company (i) is permissible under the documents and instruments governing such plan; (ii) satisfies the diversification requirements of ERISA; (iii) is prudent considering all the facts and circumstances; and (iv) is not a “prohibited transaction” within the meaning of Section 406 of ERISA.

The Subscriber represents and warrants that the funds representing the aggregate subscription price that will be advanced by the Subscriber hereunder will not represent proceeds of crime and the Subscriber acknowledges that the Company may in the future be required by law to disclose the Subscriber’s name and other information relating to this Subscription Agreement and the Subscriber’s subscription hereunder, on a confidential basis, and (i) to the best of the Subscriber’s knowledge, none of the subscription funds to be provided by the Subscriber (a) have been or will be derived from or related to any activity that is deemed criminal under the laws of the United States of America, or any other jurisdiction, or (b) are being tendered on behalf of a person or entity who has not been identified to the Subscriber, and (ii) the Subscriber shall promptly notify the Company if the Subscriber discovers that any of such representations ceases to be true, and shall provide the Company with appropriate information in connection therewith.
