WARRANT

 

Enumeral Biomedical Corp.

 

Expiring: _______, 2024

 

THIS IS TO CERTIFY THAT, for value received, _____________________ (the “Holder”), is entitled, subject to certain conditions set forth in Sections 1.01 and 1.02 hereof, to purchase from Enumeral Biomedical Corp., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), at the Company’s principal executive office, at a price per share of $0.27 (the “Exercise Price”), up to _______ shares (the “Warrant Shares”) of the Company’s Common Stock, $0.0001 par value per share (“Common Stock”), all subject to adjustment and upon the terms and conditions as hereinafter provided, and is entitled also to exercise the other appurtenant rights, powers and privileges hereinafter described.

 

Certain terms used in this Warrant are defined in Article IV hereof.

 

Article I.

 

METHOD OF EXERCISE

 

Section 1.01         Time of Exercise. Subject to the provisions of Sections 1.02 and 1.03 hereof, this Warrant may be exercised in whole or in part at any time and from time to time prior to the Expiration Time.

 

Section 1.02         Method of Exercise.

 

(a)To exercise this Warrant in whole or in part, the Holder shall deliver to the Company, at the Company’s principal executive office (a) this Warrant, (b) a written notice of such Holder’s election to exercise this Warrant in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A and (c) payment of an amount equal to the Exercise Price multiplied by the total number of Warrant Shares for which this Warrant is then being exercised. Such payment may be made, at the option of the Holder, in cash, by certified or bank cashier’s check, money order or wire transfer, or any combination thereof, or in any other manner consented to in writing by the Company.

 

 
 

 

(b)In lieu of cash exercising this Warrant in accordance with (a) above, at any time from and after a Deemed Liquidation Event (as defined in the Company Certificate), the Holder may elect to receive shares equal to the value of this Warrant (or the portion thereof being canceled) by surrender of this Warrant to the Company together with notice of such election, in which event the Company shall issue to the Holder hereof a number of Shares computed using the following formula:

 

Y (A-B)

X=          A

 

Where:

 

X equals the number of Warrant Shares to be issued to the Holder;

 

Y equals the number of Warrant Shares purchasable under the Warrant, or, if only a portion of the Warrant is being exercised, the portion of the Warrant being exercised at the date of such calculation;

 

A equals the Fair Market Value of one Warrant Share (at the date of such calculation); and

 

B equals the Exercise Price (as adjusted to the date of such calculations).

 

(c)The Company shall, as promptly as practicable after receipt of the items required by this Section 1.02, execute and deliver or cause to be executed and delivered, in accordance with such notice, a certificate or certificates representing the Warrant Shares specified in such notice. The share certificate or certificates so delivered shall be in such denominations as shall be specified in such notice and shall be issued in the name of the Holder or, provided, in an opinion of counsel reasonably acceptable to the Company, the following is permitted under the Act and applicable state securities law, such other name as shall be designated in such notice. Such certificate or certificates shall be deemed to have been issued, and such Holder or Holders or any other person so designated to be named therein shall be deemed for all purposes to have become a Holder of record of such shares as of the date the aforementioned notice is received by the Company. If this Warrant shall have been exercised only in part, the Company shall, at the time of delivery of the certificate or certificates, deliver to the Holder a new Warrant evidencing the right to purchase the remaining Warrant Shares called for by this Warrant, which new Warrant shall in all other respects be identical to this Warrant, or, at the request of the Holder, appropriate notations may be made on this Warrant which shall then be returned to the Holder. The Company shall pay all expenses, taxes and other charges payable in connection with the preparation, issuance and delivery of share certificates and new Warrants, except that, if share certificates or new Warrants shall be registered in a name or names other than the name of the Holder, funds sufficient to pay all transfer taxes, if any, payable as a result of such transfer shall be paid by the Holder at the time of delivering the aforementioned notice of exercise or promptly upon receipt of a written request of the Company for payment.

 

2
 

 

Section 1.03         Shares To Be Fully Paid and Nonassessable. All shares of Common Stock issued upon exercise of the Warrant shall be validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable.

 

Section 1.04         No Fractional Shares To Be Issued. The Company shall not be required to issue fractions of Warrant Shares upon exercise of this Warrant. If any fractions of a share would, but for this Section, be issuable upon any exercise of this Warrant, in lieu of such fractional share the Company shall pay to the Holder, in cash, an amount equal to the same fraction of the fair market value of one share of Common Stock.

 

Section 1.05         Share Legend. Each certificate for Warrant Shares issued upon exercise of this Warrant, unless at the time of exercise such shares are registered under the Act, shall bear a legend substantially as follows or similar legend as determined in good faith by the Company’s Board of Directors:

 

THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, OR APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS AND MAY NOT BE TRANSFERRED, SOLD OR OTHERWISE DISPOSED OF IN THE ABSENCE OF AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT WITH RESPECT TO THE SECURITIES EVIDENCED BY THIS CERTIFICATE, FILED AND MADE EFFECTIVE UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, AND SUCH APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS, OR UNLESS SOLD PURSUANT TO AN EXEMPTION FROM SUCH REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS PROVIDED THAT THE COMPANY RECEIVES AN OPINION OF COUNSEL SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY TO THE EFFECT THAT REGISTRATION UNDER SUCH ACT AND SUCH APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS IS NOT REQUIRED.

 

Any certificate issued at any time in exchange or substitution for any certificate bearing such legend (except a new certificate issued upon completion of a public distribution pursuant to a registration statement under the Act) shall also bear such legend unless, in the opinion of counsel reasonably acceptable to the Company, the securities represented thereby no longer need to be subject to restrictions on resale under the Act.

 

Section 1.06         Reservation of Stock. The Company agrees during the term the rights under this Warrant are exercisable to reserve and keep available from its authorized and unissued shares of Common Stock for the purpose of effecting the exercise of this Warrant such number of shares of Common Stock (and shares of the Company’s Common Stock for issuance upon conversion of such Warrant Shares) as shall from time to time be sufficient to effect the exercise of the rights under this Warrant.

 

3
 

 

Section 1.07         Transfers. Neither this Warrant nor any rights hereunder may be assigned, conveyed or transferred, in whole or in part, without the Company’s prior written consent, which the Company may withhold in its sole discretion; provided, however, that this Warrant : (a) may be pledged without the prior written consent of the Company to any lender to the Holder as part of a bona fide secured loan or credit facility (and, following a default thereunder, this Note may be transferred to such lender without the Company’s consent), and (b) may be assigned, conveyed or transferred without the prior written consent of the Company to any Affiliate of the Holder; provided, further, that Holder surrenders this Warrant properly endorsed or accompanied by written instructions of transfer in the form of attached hereto as Exhibit B, and any such permitted transferee executes an acknowledgement that such transferee is subject to all the terms and conditions of this Warrant and satisfies the Company as to compliance with state and federal securities law.

Section 2.01         Merger. If at any time there shall be a merger, acquisition or consolidation of the Company with or into another corporation, where the Company is not the surviving corporation, or a sale of all or substantially all of the Company’s assets, then, as a part of such merger or consolidation, lawful provision shall be made so that the Holder shall thereafter be entitled to receive upon exercise of this Warrant, during the period specified herein and upon payment of the aggregate Exercise Price then in effect, the number of shares of stock or other securities, cash or other property of the successor corporation resulting from such merger or consolidation, to which a holder of the stock deliverable upon exercise of this Warrant would have been entitled in such merger or consolidation if this Warrant had been exercised immediately before such merger or consolidation. In any such case, appropriate adjustment shall be made in the application of the provisions of this Warrant with respect to the rights and interests of the Holder after the merger or consolidation.

 

Section 2.02         Reclassification, etc. If the securities issuable upon exercise of this Warrant are changed into the same or a different number of securities of any other class or classes by reclassification, capital reorganization, conversion of all outstanding shares of the relevant class or series or otherwise (other than as otherwise provided for herein) (a “Reclassification”), then, in any such event, in lieu of the number of Warrant Shares which the Holder would otherwise have been entitled to receive, the Holder shall have the right thereafter to exercise this Warrant for a number of shares of such other class or classes of stock that a holder of the number of securities deliverable upon exercise of this Warrant immediately before that change would have been entitled to receive in such Reclassification, all subject to further adjustment as provided herein with respect to such other shares.

 

4
 

 

Section 2.03         Split, Subdivision or Combination of Shares. If the Company at any time while this Warrant remains outstanding and unexpired shall split, subdivide or combine its Common Stock, the Exercise Price shall be proportionately decreased and the number of Warrant Shares purchasable hereunder shall be proportionately increased in the case of a split, payment of a stock dividend (of shares of Common Stock) or subdivision, or the Exercise Price shall be proportionately increased and the number of shares of Warrant Shares purchasable hereunder shall be proportionately decreased in the case of a combination.

 

Section 2.04         Notice of Adjustments; Notices. Whenever the Exercise Price or number of Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise hereof shall be adjusted pursuant to Article II hereof, the Company shall issue a written notice setting forth, in reasonable detail, the event requiring the adjustment, the amount of the adjustment, the method by which such adjustment was calculated and the Exercise Price and number of Warrant Shares purchasable hereunder after giving effect to such adjustment, and shall cause a copy of such notice to be given in accordance with Article VI hereof.

Section 3.02         Change of Principal Executive Office. In the event the Company shall change the address of its principal executive office, the Company shall give the Holder notice of any such change within a reasonable time.
