3. Exercise of Warrant.

(a)           Exercise of the purchase rights represented by this Warrant may be made at any time or times on or after the Initial Exercise Date and on or before the Termination Date by delivery to the Company of a duly executed facsimile copy of the Notice of Exercise Form annexed hereto (the “Notice of Exercise Form”), 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 registered Holder at the address of such Holder appearing on the books of the Company); provided, however, the Holder shall also have surrendered the original of this Warrant to the Company and the Company shall have received  payment of the aggregate Exercise Price of the Warrant Shares thereby purchased by wire transfer or cashier’s check drawn on a United States bank.  Certificates for shares purchased hereunder shall be delivered to the Holder promptly following the latest to occur of delivery to the Company of the Notice of Exercise Form, surrender of this Warrant and payment of the aggregate Exercise Price as set forth above.  This Warrant shall be deemed to have been exercised and the Warrant Shares (to which the exercise relates) shall be deemed to have been issued, and Holder or any other person so designated to be named therein shall be deemed to have become a holder of record of such shares for all purposes, as of the date of the latest to occur of (i) delivery to the Company of the Notice of Exercise Form, (ii) surrender of this Warrant and (iii) payment of the aggregate Exercise Price as set forth above and all taxes required to be paid by the Holder, if any, pursuant to Section 5 (“Exercise Date”).
 
(b) If this Warrant shall have been exercised in part, the Company shall, at the time of delivery of the certificate or certificates representing Warrant Shares, deliver to Holder a new Warrant evidencing the rights of Holder to purchase the unpurchased Warrant Shares called for by this Warrant, which new Warrant shall in all other respects be identical with this Warrant.

(c)           Subject to the provisions of this Section 3, if there is a currently effective Registration Statement registering the resale of the Warrant Shares by the Holder, upon either: (i) completion of an underwritten initial public offering, or (ii) the Company’s Common Stock is traded on a national securities exchange or in the over-the-counter market at or above $4.00 per share for 20 consecutive trading days (the “Threshold Price”) (subject to adjustment), then the Company may, within fifteen (15) days of either (A) the Effective Date, or (B) 20 consecutive trading days at or above $4.00 per share , redeem all or any portion of this Warrant for which a Notice of Exercise has not yet been delivered at a price of $.01 per share of Common Stock (such right, a “Redemption”).  To exercise this right, the Company must deliver to the Holder an irrevocable written notice (a “Redemption Notice”), indicating therein the unexercised portion of this Warrant to which such notice applies.  Deposit of such Redemption Notice with a recognized courier service, a recognized overnight delivery service or with the U.S. Postal Service (via certified or registered mail) in accordance with Section 17(d) within the above fifteen (15) Trading Day period shall be considered a timely Redemption.  If the conditions set forth above for such Redemption are satisfied, from the period from the date of the Redemption Notice through and including the Redemption Date (as defined below), then any portion of this Warrant subject to such Redemption Notice for which a Notice of Exercise, the original Warrant certificate and the applicable aggregate Exercise Price shall not have been received from and after the date of the Redemption Notice will be cancelled at 6:30 p.m. (Eastern Time) on the thirtieth (30th) calendar day after the date the Redemption Notice is sent to the Holder (such date, the “Redemption Date”).  Any unexercised portion of this Warrant to which the Redemption Notice does not pertain will be unaffected by such Redemption Notice.  In furtherance thereof, the Company covenants and agrees that it will honor all Notices of Exercise with respect to Warrant Shares subject to a Redemption Notice that are tendered, with the original of this Warrant certificate and the applicable aggregate Exercise Price, from the time of delivery of the Redemption Notice through 6:30 p.m. (Eastern Time) on the Redemption Date.  The parties agree that any Notice of Exercise delivered following a Redemption Notice shall first apply to the Warrant Shares subject to such Redemption Notice prior to applying to the remaining Warrant Shares available for purchase under this Warrant.  Subject again to the provisions of this Section 3(c), the Company may deliver subsequent Redemption Notices for any portion of this Warrant for which the Holder shall not have delivered a Notice of Exercise.  The Company’s right to redeem the Warrant shall be exercised ratably among all holders of warrants issued pursuant to Subscription Agreements entered into as part of the same financing.

 
 

 
 
Warrant No. D-[ ]
 
 
   
 
  
(d)           If as of six (6) months following the Initial Exercise Date, there is not a currently available Registration Statement permitting the resale of all of the Warrant Shares issuable under this Warrant at the time a Notice of Exercise Form is delivered to the Company (either due to the inability of the Company to either have the SEC declare such Registration Statement effective on or prior to such date or to maintain the effectiveness of such Registration Statement for the duration of the period prescribed in the Registration Statement), the Holder may initiate a cashless exercise (a “Cashless Exercise”), as hereinafter provided.  The Holder may effect a Cashless Exercise by surrendering this Warrant to the Company and noting on the Notice of Exercise Form that the Holder wishes to effect a Cashless Exercise, upon which the Company shall issue to the Holder the number of Warrant Shares determined as follows:

X = Y x (A-B)/A
            where:
X = the number of Warrant Shares to be issued to the Holder;
Y = the number of Warrant Shares with respect to which this Warrant is being exercised;
A = the Market Price as of the Exercise Date; and
B = the Exercise Price.
 
For purposes of Rule 144 under the Securities Act, it is intended and acknowledged that the Warrant Shares issued in a Cashless Exercise transaction shall be deemed to have been acquired by the Holder, and the holding period for the Warrant Shares required by Rule 144 shall be deemed to have been commenced, on the date this Warrant was originally issued by the Company.

4. No Fractional Shares or Scrip.  No fractional shares or scrip representing fractional shares shall be issued upon the exercise of this Warrant.  As to any fraction of a share which the Holder would otherwise be entitled to purchase upon such exercise, the Company shall pay a cash adjustment in respect of such final fraction in an amount equal to such fraction multiplied by the Exercise Price.

5. Charges, Taxes and Expenses.  Issuance of certificates for Warrant Shares shall be made without charge to the Holder for any issue or transfer tax or other incidental expense in respect of the issuance of such certificate, all of which taxes and expenses shall be paid by the Company, and such certificates shall be issued in the name of the Holder or in such name or names as may be directed by the Holder; provided, however, that in the event certificates for Warrant Shares are to be issued in a name other than the name of the Holder, this Warrant when surrendered for exercise shall be accompanied by the Assignment Form attached hereto duly executed by the Holder; and the Company may require, as a condition thereto, the payment of a sum sufficient to reimburse it for any transfer tax incidental thereto.

6. Closing of Books.  The Company will not close its stockholder books or records in any manner which prevents the timely exercise of this Warrant, pursuant to the terms hereof.

7. Transfer, Division and Combination.

(a) Subject to compliance with any applicable securities laws and the conditions set forth in Sections 1 and 7(e) hereof and in the Subscription Agreement, this Warrant and all rights hereunder are transferable, in whole or in part, upon surrender of this Warrant at the principal office of the Company, together with a written assignment of this Warrant substantially in the form attached hereto duly executed by the Holder or its agent or attorney and funds sufficient to pay any transfer taxes payable upon the making of such transfer.  Upon such surrender and, if required, such payment, the Company shall execute and deliver a new Warrant or Warrants in the name of the assignee or assignees and in the denomination or denominations specified in such instrument of assignment, and shall issue to the assignor a new Warrant evidencing the portion of this Warrant not so assigned, and this Warrant shall promptly be cancelled.

 
 

 
 
Warrant No. D-[ ]
 
 
   
 
 
(b) This Warrant may be divided or combined with other Warrants (if such other Warrants are upon the same terms, other than number of Warrant Shares, as this Warrant) upon presentation hereof at the aforesaid office of the Company, together with a written notice specifying the names and denominations in which new Warrants are to be issued, signed by the Holder or its agent or attorney.  Subject to compliance with Section 7(a), as to any transfer which may be involved in such division or combination, the Company shall execute and deliver a new Warrant or Warrants in exchange for the Warrant or Warrants to be divided or combined in accordance with such notice.

(c) The Company shall prepare, issue and deliver at its own expense (other than transfer taxes) the new Warrant or Warrants under this Section 7.

(d) The Company agrees to maintain, at its aforesaid office, books for the registration and the registration of transfer of the Warrants.

(e) The Holder acknowledges that it has been advised by the Company that this Warrant and the Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise hereof (collectively the “Securities”) have not been registered under the Securities Act, that the Warrant is being issued, and the shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrant will be issued, on the basis of the statutory exemption provided by section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act relating to transactions by an issuer not involving any public offering, and that the Company’s reliance upon this statutory exemption is based in part upon the representations made by the Holder contained herein. The Holder acknowledges that he has been informed by the Company of, or is otherwise familiar with, the nature of the limitations imposed by the Securities Act and the rules and regulations thereunder on the transfer of securities. In particular, the Holder agrees that no sale, assignment or transfer of the Securities shall be valid or effective, and the Company shall not be required to give any effect to any such sale, assignment or transfer, unless (i) the sale, assignment or transfer of the Securities is registered under the Securities Act, and the Company has no obligations or intention to so register the Securities except as may otherwise be provided herein, or (ii) the Securities are sold, assigned or transferred in accordance with all the requirements and limitations of Rule 144 under the Securities Act or such sale, assignment, or transfer is otherwise exempt from registration under the Securities Act.  The Holder represents and warrants that he has acquired this Warrant and will acquire the Securities for his own account for investment and not with a view to the sale or distribution thereof or the granting of any participation therein, and that he has no present intention of distributing or selling to others any of such interest or granting any participation therein. If, at the time of the surrender of this Warrant in connection with any transfer of this Warrant, the transfer of this Warrant shall not be registered pursuant to an effective Registration Statement and under applicable state securities or blue sky laws, the Company may require, as a condition of allowing such transfer (i) that the Holder or transferee of this Warrant, as the case may be, furnish to the Company a written opinion of counsel reasonably acceptable to the Company (which opinion shall be in form, substance and scope customary for opinions of counsel in comparable transactions) to the effect that such transfer may be made without registration under the Securities Act and under applicable state securities or blue sky laws, (ii) that the holder or transferee execute and deliver to the Company an investment letter in form and substance acceptable to the Company and (iii) that the transferee be an “accredited investor” as defined in Rule 501 promulgated under the Securities Act or a qualified institutional buyer as defined in Rule 144A(a) under the Securities Act.

 
 

 
 
Warrant No. D-[ ]
 
 
   
 
  
     (f)  The Holder acknowledges that the Warrant Shares shall bear the following legend:
“These securities have not been registered under the Securities Act of l933.  Such securities may not be sold or offered for sale, transferred, hypothecated or otherwise assigned in the absence of an effective registration statement with respect thereto under such Act or an opinion of counsel to the Company that an exemption from registration for such sale, offer, transfer, hypothecation or other assignment is available under such Act.”

8. No Rights as Shareholder until Exercise.  This Warrant does not entitle the Holder to any voting rights or other rights as a shareholder of the Company prior to the exercise hereof.  Upon the exercise of this Warrant, the Warrant Shares so purchased shall be, and be deemed to be, issued to such Holder as the record owner of such shares as of the close of business on the Exercise Date with respect to such exercise.

9. Loss, Theft, Destruction or Mutilation of Warrant.  The Company covenants that upon receipt by the Company of evidence reasonably satisfactory to it of the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of this Warrant, and in case of loss, theft or destruction, of indemnity or security reasonably satisfactory to it, and upon surrender and cancellation of such Warrant, if mutilated, the Company will make and deliver a new Warrant of like tenor and dated as of such cancellation, in lieu of such Warrant.

10. Business Days.  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.

11. Adjustments of Exercise Price and Number of Warrant Shares; Stock Splits, etc.

Stock Dividends and Distributions, Stock Splits and Reclassifications
 
The number and kind of securities purchasable upon the exercise of this Warrant and the Exercise Price shall be subject to adjustment from time to time upon the happening of any of the following.  In case the Company shall (i) pay a dividend in shares of Common Stock or make a distribution in shares of Common Stock to holders of its outstanding Common Stock, (ii) subdivide its outstanding shares of Common Stock into a greater number of shares, (iii) combine its outstanding shares of Common Stock into a smaller number of shares of Common Stock, or (iv) issue any shares of its capital stock in a reclassification of the Common Stock, then the Exercise Price in effect at the time of the record date for such dividend or distribution or the effective date of such subdivision, combination or reclassification shall be proportionately adjusted. Any adjustment made herein that result in a decrease (or increase) in the Exercise Price shall also result in a proportional increase (or decrease) in the number of shares of Common Stock into which this Warrant is exercisable. Successive adjustments in the Exercise Price and number of Warrant Shares shall be made whenever any event specified above shall occur. An adjustment made pursuant to this paragraph shall become effective immediately after the effective date of such event retroactive to the record date, if any, for such event.

12. Reorganization, Reclassification, Merger, Consolidation or Disposition of Assets.  In case the Company shall reorganize its capital, reclassify its capital stock, consolidate or merge with or into another corporation (where the Company is not the surviving corporation or where there is a change in or distribution with respect to the Common Stock of the Company), or sell, transfer or otherwise dispose all or substantially all of its property, assets or business to another corporation and, pursuant to the terms of such reorganization, reclassification, merger, consolidation or disposition of assets, shares of common stock of the successor or acquiring corporation, or any cash, shares of stock or other securities or property of any nature whatsoever (including warrants or other subscription or purchase rights) in addition to or in lieu of common stock of the successor or acquiring corporation (“Other Property”), are to be received by or distributed to the holders of Common Stock of the Company, then the Holder shall have the right thereafter to receive, upon exercise of this Warrant, the number of shares of common stock of the successor or acquiring corporation or of the Company, if it is the surviving corporation, and Other Property receivable upon or as a result of such reorganization, reclassification, merger, consolidation or disposition of assets by a Holder of the number of shares of Common Stock for which this Warrant is exercisable immediately prior to such event. In case of any such reorganization, reclassification, merger, consolidation or disposition of assets (“Extraordinary Transaction”), the successor or acquiring corporation (if other than the Company) shall expressly assume the due and punctual observance and performance of each and every covenant and condition of this Warrant to be performed and observed by the Company and all the obligations and liabilities hereunder, subject to such modifications as may be deemed appropriate (as determined in good faith by resolution of the Board of Directors of the Company) in order to provide for adjustments of Warrant Shares for which this Warrant is exercisable which shall be as nearly equivalent as practicable to the adjustments provided for in this Section 12.  As soon as commercially practicable following the Extraordinary Transaction, the successor or acquiring corporation (if other than the Company), shall deliver to Holder a new warrant in repacement of this Warrant consistent with the provisions referenced in the immediately preceding sentence against receipt by such successor or acquiring corporation of the original of this Warrant.  For purposes of this Section 12, “common stock of the successor or acquiring corporation” shall include stock of such corporation of any class which is not preferred as to dividends or assets over any other class of stock of such corporation and which is not subject to redemption and shall also include any evidences of indebtedness, shares of stock or other securities which are convertible into or exchangeable for any such stock, either immediately or upon the arrival of a specified date or the happening of a specified event and any warrants or other rights to subscribe for or purchase any such stock.  The foregoing provisions of this Section 12 shall similarly apply to successive reorganizations, reclassifications, mergers, consolidations or disposition of assets.

13. Voluntary Adjustment by the Company.  The Company may at any time during the term of this Warrant reduce the then current Exercise Price to any amount and for any period of time deemed appropriate by the Board of Directors of the Company.

 
 

 
 
 
Warrant No. D-[ ]
 
 
   
 
 
14. Notice of Adjustment.  Whenever the number of Warrant Shares or number or kind of securities or other property purchasable upon the exercise of this Warrant or the Exercise Price is adjusted, as herein provided, the Company shall give prior written notice thereof to the Holder of at least 15 days prior to the date on which the Company closes its books or takes a record for determining the particular event, which notice shall state the number of Warrant Shares (and other securities or property) purchasable upon the exercise of this Warrant and the Exercise Price of such Warrant Shares (and other securities or property) after such adjustment, setting forth a brief statement of the facts requiring such adjustment and setting forth the computation by which such adjustment was made.

15. Notice of Corporate Action.  If at any time:

(a)           the Company shall take a record of the holders of its Common Stock for the purpose of entitling them to receive a dividend or other distribution, or any right to subscribe for or purchase any evidences of its indebtedness, any shares of stock of any class or any other securities or property, or to receive any other right, or

(b)           there shall be any capital reorganization of the Company, any reclassification or recapitalization of the capital stock of the Company or any consolidation or merger of the Company with (other than a consolidation or merger in which the Company is the surviving corporation), or any sale, transfer or other disposition of all or substantially all the property, assets or business of the Company to, another corporation, or

 (c)           there shall be a voluntary or involuntary dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Company;

then, in any one or more of such cases, the Company shall give to Holder (i) at least fifteen (15) days’ prior written notice of the date on which a record date shall be selected for such dividend, distribution or right or for determining rights to vote in respect of any such reorganization, reclassification, merger, consolidation, sale, transfer, disposition, liquidation or winding up, and (ii) in the case of any such reorganization, reclassification, merger, consolidation, sale, transfer, disposition, dissolution, liquidation or winding up, at least fifteen (15) days’ prior written notice of the date when the same shall take place.  Such notice in accordance with the foregoing clause also shall specify (i) the date on which any such record is to be taken for the purpose of such dividend, distribution or right, the date on which the holders of Common Stock shall be entitled to any such dividend, distribution or right, and the amount and character thereof, and (ii) the date on which any such reorganization, reclassification, merger, consolidation, sale, transfer, disposition, dissolution, liquidation or winding up is to take place and the time, if any such time is to be fixed, as of which the holders of Common Stock shall be entitled to exchange their Warrant Shares for securities or other property deliverable upon such disposition, dissolution, liquidation or winding up.  Each such written notice shall be sufficiently given if addressed to Holder at the last address of Holder appearing on the books of the Company and delivered in accordance with Section 17(d).

 
 

 
 
 
Warrant No. D-[ ]
 
 
   
 
 
16. Authorized Shares.  The Company covenants that during the period the Warrant is outstanding, it will reserve from its authorized and unissued Common Stock a sufficient number of shares to provide for the issuance of the Warrant Shares upon the exercise of any purchase rights under this Warrant (the “Required Minimum”).  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 of the Company shall use commercially reasonable efforts to 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 number of shares of Common Stock that would result from the full exercise of the Warrant Shares at such time, as soon as possible and in any event not later than the 75th day after such date.  The Company further covenants 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 upon the exercise of the purchase rights under this Warrant.  The Company will take all such reasonable action as may be necessary to assure that such Warrant Shares may be issued as provided herein without violation of any applicable law or regulation, or of any requirements of the Trading Market upon which the Common Stock may be listed.

Except and to the extent as waived or consented to by the Holder, the Company shall not by any action, including, without limitation, amending its certificate of incorporation or through any reorganization, transfer of assets, consolidation, merger, dissolution, issue or sale of securities or any other voluntary action, avoid or seek to avoid the observance or performance of any of the terms of this Warrant.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Company will (a) not increase the par value of any Warrant Shares above the amount payable therefor upon such exercise immediately prior to such increase in par value, (b) take all such action as may be necessary or appropriate in order that the Company may validly and legally issue fully paid and nonassessable Warrant Shares upon the exercise of this Warrant, and (c) use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain all such authorizations, exemptions or consents from any public regulatory body having jurisdiction thereof as may be necessary to enable the Company to perform its obligations under this Warrant.

Before taking any action which would result in an adjustment in the number of Warrant Shares for which this Warrant is exercisable or in the Exercise Price, the Company shall obtain all such authorizations or exemptions thereof, or consents thereto, as may be necessary from any public regulatory body or bodies having jurisdiction thereof.

17. Miscellaneous.
