1.           Registration of Warrant.  The Company shall register this Warrant upon records to be maintained by the Company for that purpose (the “Warrant Register”), in the name of the record Warrant Holder hereof from time to time.  The Company may deem and treat the registered Warrant Holder of this Warrant as the absolute owner hereof for the purpose of any exercise hereof or any distribution to the Warrant Holder, and for all other purposes, and the Company shall not be affected by notice to the contrary.
 
2.           Investment Representation.  The Warrant Holder by accepting this Warrant represents that the Warrant Holder is acquiring this Warrant for its own account or the account of an affiliate for investment purposes and not with the view to any offering or distribution and that the Warrant Holder will not sell or otherwise dispose of this Warrant or the underlying Warrant Shares in violation of applicable securities laws.  The Warrant Holder acknowledges that the certificates representing any Warrant Shares will bear a legend indicating that they have not been registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “1933 Act”) and may not be sold by the Warrant Holder except pursuant to an effective registration statement or pursuant to an exemption from registration requirements of the 1933 Act and in accordance with federal and state securities laws.  If this Warrant was acquired by the Warrant Holder pursuant to the exemption from the registration requirements of the 1933 Act afforded by Regulation S thereunder, the Warrant Holder acknowledges and covenants that this Warrant may not be exercised by or on behalf of a Person during the one year distribution compliance period (as defined in Regulation S) following the date hereof.  Person means an individual, partnership, firm, limited liability company, trust, joint venture, association, corporation, or any other legal entity.

b.           This Warrant is exchangeable, upon the surrender hereof by the Warrant Holder to the office of the Company specified in or pursuant to Section 9 for one or more New Warrants, evidencing in the aggregate the right to purchase the number of Warrant Shares which may then be purchased hereunder.  Any such New Warrant will be dated the date of such exchange.
 
5.           Exercise of Warrants.
 
a.           Upon surrender of this Warrant with the Form of Election to Purchase attached hereto duly completed and signed to the Company, at its address set forth in Section 12, and upon payment and delivery of the Exercise Price per Warrant Share multiplied by the number of Warrant Shares that the Warrant Holder intends to purchase hereunder, in lawful money of the United States of America, in cash or by certified or official bank check or checks, to the Company, all as specified by the Warrant Holder in the Form of Election to Purchase, the Company shall promptly (but in no event later than 7 business days after the Date of Exercise (as defined herein)) issue or cause to be issued  and cause to be delivered to or upon the written order of the Warrant Holder and in such name or names as the Warrant Holder may designate (subject to the restrictions on transfer described in the legend set forth on the face of this Warrant), a certificate for the Warrant Shares issuable upon such exercise, with such restrictive legend as required by the 1933 Act.  Any person so designated by the Warrant Holder to receive Warrant Shares shall be deemed to have become holder of record of such Warrant Shares as of the Date of Exercise of this Warrant.
 
b.           A “Date of Exercise” means the date on which the Company shall have received (i) this Warrant (or any New Warrant, as applicable), with the Form of Election to Purchase attached hereto (or attached to such New Warrant) appropriately completed and duly signed, and (ii) payment of the Exercise Price for the number of Warrant Shares so indicated by the Warrant Holder to be purchased.
 
c.           This Warrant shall be exercisable at any time and from time to time for such number of Warrant Shares as is indicated in the attached Form of Election To Purchase.  If less than all of the Warrant Shares which may be purchased under this Warrant are exercised at any time, the Company shall issue or cause to be issued, at its expense, a New Warrant evidencing the right to purchase the remaining number of Warrant Shares for which no exercise has been evidenced by this Warrant.
 
d.           (i) Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary but subject to Section 6, if the shares underlying the Warrant are not registered pursuant to a Registration Statement as described in the Registration Rights Agreement within 18 months post Closing, the holder of this Warrant may, at its election exercised in its sole discretion, exercise this Warrant in whole or in part and, in lieu of making the cash payment otherwise contemplated to be made to the Company upon such exercise in payment of the Aggregate Exercise Price, elect instead to receive upon such exercise the “Net Number” of shares of Common Stock determined according to the following formula (a “Cashless Exercise”):
 
CHINA FOR-GEN WARRANT AGREEMENT
PAGE 3 OF 9
 
 

 

Net Number = (A x (B - C))/B
 
(ii)           For purposes of the foregoing formula:
 
A= the total number shares with respect to which this Warrant is then being exercised.
 
B= the last reported sale price (as reported by Bloomberg) of the Common Stock on the trading day immediately preceding the date of the Exercise Notice.
 
C= the Warrant Exercise Price then in effect at the time of such exercise.
 
e.           The holder of this Warrant agrees not to elect a Cashless Exercise for a period of six (6) months. The holder of this Warrant also agrees not to elect a Cashless Exercise so long as there is an effective registration statement for the Warrant Shares.
 
6.           Maximum Exercise.  The Warrant Holder shall not be entitled to exercise this Warrant on a Date of Exercise in connection with that number of shares of Common Stock which would be in excess of the sum of (i) the number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Warrant Holder and its affiliates on an exercise date, and (ii) the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of this Warrant with respect to which the determination of this limitation is being made on an exercise date, which would result in beneficial ownership by the Warrant Holder and its affiliates of more than 4.9% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock on such date.  This Section 6 may be waived or amended only with the consent of the Holder and the consent of holders of a majority of the shares of outstanding Common Stock of the Company who are not Affiliates.  For the purposes of the immediately preceding sentence, the term “Affiliate” shall mean any person: (a) that directly, or indirectly through one or more intermediaries, controls, or is controlled by, or is under common control with, the Company; or (b) who beneficially owns (i) any shares of the Company’s Series of Preferred Stock, (ii) the Company’s Common Stock Purchase Warrant “A” dated December 29, 2009, or (iii) this Warrant.  For the purposes of the immediately preceding sentence, beneficial ownership shall be determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and Regulation 13d-3 thereunder.
 
7.           Adjustment of Exercise Price and Number of Shares.  The character of the shares of stock or other securities at the time issuable upon exercise of this Warrant and the Exercise Price therefore, are subject to adjustment upon the occurrence of the following events, and all such adjustments shall be cumulative:
 
a.           Adjustment for Stock Splits, Stock Dividends, Recapitalizations, Etc.  The Exercise Price of this Warrant and the number of shares of Common Stock or other securities at the time issuable upon exercise of this Warrant shall be appropriately adjusted to reflect any stock dividend, stock split, combination of shares, reclassification, recapitalization or other similar event affecting the number of outstanding shares of stock or securities.
 
CHINA FOR-GEN WARRANT AGREEMENT
PAGE 4 OF 9
 
 

 

b.           Adjustment for Reorganization, Consolidation, Merger, Etc.  In case of any consolidation or merger of the Company with or into any other corporation, entity or person, or any other corporate reorganization, in which the Company shall not be the continuing or surviving entity of such consolidation, merger or reorganization (any such transaction being hereinafter referred to as a "Reorganization"), then, in each case, the holder of this Warrant, on exercise hereof at any time after the consummation or effective date of such Reorganization (the "Effective Date"), shall receive, in lieu of the shares of stock or other securities at any time issuable upon the exercise of the Warrant issuable on such exercise prior to the Effective Date, the stock and other securities and property (including cash) to which such holder would have been entitled upon the Effective Date if such holder had exercised this Warrant immediately prior thereto (all subject to further adjustment as provided in this Warrant).
 
c.           Certificate as to Adjustments.  In case of any adjustment or readjustment in the price or kind of securities issuable on the exercise of this Warrant, the Company will promptly give written notice thereof to the holder of this Warrant in the form of a certificate, certified and confirmed by the Board of Directors of the Company, setting forth such adjustment or readjustment and showing in reasonable detail the facts upon which such adjustment or readjustment is based.
 
d.           The Company fails to meet certain earnings per share projections.  In the event the Company’s Net Income for the year ended December 31, 2009 is less than $.4529 per share on a fully-diluted basis, then the Exercise Price shall be reduced by a percentage equal to the percentage shortfall (where Net Income on a fully diluted basis shall always be defined as earnings from continuing operations before any non-cash items on a pre-tax fully diluted basis (including dilution from any options, warrants and convertible securities) as reported for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2009). The warrant exercise price shall be reduced proportionately by 0% if the earnings are $.4565 per share and by 75% if the earnings are $.1141 per share. For example, if the Company earns $0.3652 per share, or 20% below $.4565 per share, then the warrant exercise price shall be reduced by 20%. Such reduction shall automatically be in effect at the time the December 31, 2009 financial results are reported or at any other time that the Investor and the Company have a written and executed agreement stating otherwise, and shall be made from the starting exercise price of the warrants being the exercise price of the warrants at that time, and shall be cumulative upon any other changes to the exercise price of the warrant that may already have been made.
 
In the event the Company’s Net Income for the year ended December 31, 2010 is less than $.6163 per share on a fully-diluted basis, then the Exercise Price shall be reduced by the percentage shortfall (where Net Income on a fully diluted basis shall always be defined as earnings from continuing operations before any non-cash items on a pre-taxed fully diluted basis (including dilution from any options, warrants and convertible securities) as reported for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010). The warrant exercise price shall be reduced proportionately by 0% if the earnings are $.6163 per share and by 75% if the earnings are $.1541 per share. For example, if the Company earns $0.4930 per share, or 20% below $.6163 per share, then the warrant exercise price shall be reduced by 20%. Such reduction shall automatically be in effect at the time the December 31, 2010 financial results are reported or at any other time that the Investor and the Company have a written and executed agreement stating otherwise, and shall be made from the starting exercise price of the warrants being the exercise price of the warrants at that time, and shall be cumulative upon any other changes to the exercise price of the warrant that may already have been made.

e.           The Company sells, grants or issues any shares, options, warrants, or any instrument convertible into shares or equity in any form at a price (in the case of stock) or with an exercise or conversion price (in the case of warrants, options or other convertible securities) below the the current Exercise Price of this warrant.   In the event the Company sells, grants or issues any shares, options, warrants, or any instrument convertible into shares or equity in any form below the current Exercise Price then the Exercise Price shall be reduced to such lower price per share. Such reduction shall be made at the time such transaction is executed.
 
8.           Fractional Shares.  The Company shall not be required to issue or cause there to be issued fractional Warrant Shares on the exercise of this Warrant.  The number of full Warrant Shares that shall be issuable upon the exercise of this Warrant shall be computed on the basis of the aggregate number of Warrant Shares purchasable on exercise of this Warrant so presented.  If any fraction of a Warrant Share would, except for the provisions of this Section 8, be issuable on the exercise of this Warrant, the Company shall, at its option, (i) pay an amount in cash equal to the Exercise Price multiplied by such fraction or (ii) round the number of Warrant Shares issuable, up to the next whole number.
 
9.           Sale or Merger of the Company.  Upon a Change in Control, the restriction contained in Section 6 shall immediately be released and the Warrant Holder will have the right to exercise this Warrant concurrently with such Change in Control event.  For purposes of this Warrant, the term “Change in Control” shall mean a consolidation or merger of the Company with or into another company or entity in which the Company is not the surviving entity or the sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company to another company or entity not controlled by the then existing stockholders of the Company in a transaction or series of transactions.
 
10.           Notice of Intent to Sell or Merge the Company.  The Company will give Warrant Holder ten (10) business days notice before the event of a sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company or the merger or consolidation of the Company in a transaction in which the Company is not the surviving entity.
 
11.           Issuance of Substitute Warrant. In the event of a merger, consolidation, recapitalization or reorganization of the Company or a reclassification of Company shares of stock, which results in an adjustment to the number of shares subject to this Warrant and/or the Exercise Price hereunder, the Company agrees to issue to the Warrant Holder a substitute Warrant reflecting the adjusted number of shares and/or Exercise Price upon the surrender of this Warrant to the Company.
 
12.           Notice.  All notices and other communications hereunder shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been given (i) on the date they are delivered if delivered in person; (ii) on the date initially received if delivered by facsimile transmission followed by registered or certified mail confirmation; (iii) on the date delivered by an overnight courier service; or (iv) on the third business day after it is mailed by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested with postage and other fees prepaid as follows:
