1.

Exercise of Warrant

 

 

1.1

Time and Manner of Exercise.

(a)          This Warrant shall be exercisable by the Holder on any Business Day on or after August __, 2006, and before 5:00 p.m., Central Daylight Time, on the Expiration Date (the “Exercise Period”). At 5:00 p.m., Central Daylight Time, on the Expiration Date, each Warrant not exercised prior thereto shall be and become void and of no value.

(b)          Subject to the provisions of subsection 1.1(a) above and the other terms and conditions set forth herein, this Warrant may be exercised by the Holder, in whole or in part, during normal business hours on any Business Day, by surrender of this Warrant to the Company at its principal office, accompanied by a subscription in substantially the form attached to this Warrant as Exhibit A duly executed by such Holder and accompanied by payment, in cash or by certified or official bank check payable to the order of the Company, in the amount obtained by multiplying (x) the number of shares of Common Stock designated in such subscription (up to the number of shares which such Holder is entitled to receive at such time upon exercise of this Warrant by (y) the Warrant Price, and such Holder shall thereupon be entitled to receive the full number of duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable shares of Common Stock so purchased upon such exercise.

1.2          When Exercised. Each exercise of this Warrant shall be deemed to have been effective immediately prior to the close of business on the Business Day on which this Warrant shall have been surrendered to the Company as provided in Section 1.1.

 

 

 

1.3          Delivery of Stock Certificates; Fractional Interests. As soon as practicable after each exercise of this Warrant, and in any event within five (5) Business Days thereafter, the Company at its expense (including the payment by it of any applicable issue taxes) will cause to be issued in the name of and delivered to the Holder, or, subject to the provisions of Section 5, such other person designated in the subscription,

(a)          a certificate or certificates for the number of duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable shares of Common Stock to which such Holder shall be entitled upon such exercise plus, in lieu of any fractional share to which such Holder would otherwise be entitled, cash in an amount determined in accordance with the provisions of Section1.3(c), and

(b)          in case such exercise is in part only, a new Warrant of like tenor, calling in the aggregate on the face thereof for the number of shares of Common Stock equal to the number of such shares which such Holder would be entitled to receive at such time upon exercise of this Warrant, after giving effect to such recent exercise.

(c)          Fractional Interests. The Company shall not be required to issue fractional shares of Common Stock on the exercise of Warrants. If more than one Warrant shall be presented for exercise in full at the same time by the same Holder, the number of full shares of Common Stock which shall be issuable upon the exercise thereof shall be computed on the basis of the aggregate number of shares of Common Stock purchasable on exercise of the Warrants so presented. If any faction of shares of Common Stock would, except for the provisions of this Section 1.3(c), be issuable on the exercise of any Warrant (or specified portion thereof), the Company shall pay an amount in cash equal to the Current Market Value of one share of the Common Stock on the Business Day immediately preceding the date the Warrant is presented for exercise, multiplied by such fraction.

2.            Adjustment of Number of Shares of Common Stock Issuable Upon Exercise. The number and kind of shares purchasable upon the exercise of this Warrant shall be subject to adjustment from time to time as follows:

2.1          Stock Dividends; Stock Splits; Reverse Stock Splits; Reclassifications. In case the Company shall (i) pay a dividend or make any other distribution with respect to its Common Stock in shares of its capital stock, (ii) subdivide its outstanding Common Stock, (iii) combine its outstanding Common Stock into a smaller number of shares, or (iv) issue any shares of its capital stock in a reclassification of the Common Stock (including any such reclassification in connection with a merger, consolidation or other business combination in which the Company is the continuing corporation), the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrant immediately prior to the record date for such dividend or distribution or the effective date of such subdivision or combination shall be adjusted so that the Holder of the Warrant shall thereafter be entitled to receive the kind and number of shares of Common Stock or other securities of the Company that the Holder would have owned or have been entitled to receive after the happening of any of the events described above, had such Warrant been exercised immediately prior to the happening of such event or any record date with respect thereto. An adjustment made pursuant to this Section 2.1 shall become effective immediately after the effective date of such event retroactive to the record date, if any, for such event.

2.2          Distributions of Debt, Assets, Subscription Rights or Convertible Securities. In case the Company shall fix a record date for the making of a distribution to all holders of shares of its Common Stock of evidences of indebtedness of the Company, assets or securities (excluding cash dividends from current or retained earnings) (any such evidences of indebtedness, assets or securities, herein referred to as the “assets or securities”), then adequate provision shall be made so that the Holder of the Warrant shall have the right to receive, in addition to shares of Common Stock (in the event of an exercise of the Warrant), at the election of the Company, either (A) the assets or securities to which such holder would have been entitled as a holder of Common Stock if such holder had exercised his Warrant immediately prior to the record date for such distribution or (B) the cash equivalent of such assets or securities.

2.3          No Adjustment for Dividends. Except as otherwise provided in this Section 2, no adjustment in respect of any dividends declared and paid on Common Stock, or on any other capital stock of the Company, shall be made during the term of this Warrant or upon the exercise of this Warrant.

2.4          De Minimis Adjustments. No adjustment in the number of shares of Common stock issuable hereunder shall be required unless cumulative adjustments would require an increase or decrease of at least one percent (1%) in the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of the Warrant; provided that any adjustments which by reason of this Section 2.4 are not required to be made shall be carried forward and taken into account in any subsequent adjustment. All calculations shall be made to the nearest one-thousandth of a share.

2.5          Other Adjustments. In the event that at any time, as a result of an adjustment made pursuant to this Section 2, the registered holders shall become entitled to receive any securities of the Company other than shares of Common Stock, thereafter the number of such other securities so receivable upon exercise of the Warrants shall be subject to adjustment from time to time in a manner and on terms as nearly equivalent as practicable to the provisions with respect to the shares of Common stock contained in this Section 2.

2.6          Notice of Adjustment. Whenever the number of shares of Common Stock purchasable upon the exercise of the Warrant is adjusted, as herein provided, the Company shall give Notice (pursuant to Section 8) to the Holder of such adjustment or adjustments.

3.            Reservation of Stock, Etc. The Company will at all times reserve and keep available, solely for issuance and delivery upon exercise of this Warrant, the number of shares of Common Stock from time to time issuable upon exercise of the Warrant. All shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrant shall be duly authorized and, when issued upon such exercise, shall be validly issued and, in the case of shares, fully paid and nonassessable with no liability on the part of the Holder thereof.
