(i)          No Market Manipulation.  The Company and its Affiliates have not taken, and will not take, directly or indirectly, any action designed to, or that might reasonably be expected to, cause or result in stabilization or manipulation of the price of the Common Stock to facilitate the sale or resale of the Securities or affect the price at which the Securities may be issued or resold.

(m)           No Integrated Offering.   Neither the Company, nor any of its Affiliates, nor any person acting on its or their behalf, has directly or indirectly made any offers or sales of any security of the Company nor solicited any offers to buy any security of the Company under circumstances that would cause the offer of the Securities pursuant to this Agreement to be integrated with prior offerings by the Company for purposes of the 1933 Act or any applicable stockholder approval provisions, including, without limitation, under the rules and regulations of the Bulletin Board.  No prior offering will impair the exemptions relied upon in this Offering or the Company’s ability to timely comply with its obligations hereunder.  Neither the Company nor any of its Affiliates will take any action or suffer any inaction or conduct any offering other than the transactions contemplated hereby that may be integrated with the offer or issuance of the Securities or that would impair the exemptions relied upon in this Offering or the Company’s ability to timely comply with its obligations hereunder.

(q)           Dilution.   The Company’s executive officers and directors understand the nature of the Securities being sold hereby and recognize that the issuance of the Securities will have a potential dilutive effect on the equity holdings of other holders of the Company’s equity or rights to receive equity of the Company.  The board of directors of the Company has concluded, in its good faith business judgment, that the issuance of the Securities is in the best interests of the Company.  The Company specifically acknowledges that its obligation to issue the Incentive Shares, Conversion Shares upon conversion of the Notes and the Warrant Shares upon exercise of the Warrants is binding upon the Company and enforceable regardless of the dilution such issuance may have on the ownership interests of other stockholders of the Company or parties entitled to receive equity of the Company.

(r)           No Disagreements with Accountants and Lawyers.  There are no material disagreements of any kind presently existing, or reasonably anticipated by the Company to arise between the Company and the accountants and lawyers previously and presently employed by the Company, including but not limited to disputes or conflicts over payment owed to such accountants and lawyers, nor have there been any such disagreements during the two years prior to the Closing Date.

(a)           Upon the conversion of a Note or part thereof, the Company shall, at its own cost and expense, take all necessary action, including obtaining and delivering an opinion of counsel to assure that the Company’s transfer agent shall issue stock certificates in the name of a Subscriber (or its permitted nominee) or such other persons as designated by Subscriber and in such denominations to be specified at conversion representing the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon such conversion.  The Company warrants that no instructions other than these instructions have been or will be given to the transfer agent of the Company’s Common Stock and that the certificates representing such shares shall contain no legend other than the legend set forth in Section 4(h).  If and when a Subscriber sells the Conversion Shares, assuming (i) a registration statement including such Conversion Shares for registration has been filed with the Commission, is effective and the prospectus, as supplemented or amended, contained therein is current and (ii) Subscriber or its agent confirms in writing to the transfer agent that Subscriber has complied with the prospectus delivery requirements, the Company will reissue the Conversion Shares without restrictive legend and the Conversion Shares will be free-trading, and freely transferable.  In the event that the Conversion Shares are sold in a manner that complies with an exemption from registration, the Company will promptly instruct its counsel to issue to the transfer agent an opinion permitting removal of the legend, provided that Subscriber delivers reasonably requested representations in support of such opinion.

(b)           Each Subscriber will give notice of its decision to exercise its right to convert its Note, interest, or part thereof by telecopying, or otherwise delivering a completed Notice of Conversion (a form of which is annexed as Exhibit A to the Note) to the Company via confirmed telecopier transmission or otherwise pursuant to Section 13(a) of this Agreement.  Subscriber will not be required to surrender the Note until the Note has been fully converted or satisfied.  Each date on which a Notice of Conversion is telecopied to the Company in accordance with the provisions hereof by 6 PM Eastern Time (“ET”) (or if received by the Company after 6 PM ET, then the next business day) shall be deemed a “Conversion Date.”  The Company will itself or cause the Company’s transfer agent to transmit the Company’s Common Stock certificates representing the Conversion Shares issuable upon conversion of the Note to Subscriber via express courier for receipt by Subscriber within five business days after the Conversion Date (such fifth day being the “Delivery Date”).  In the event the Conversion Shares are electronically transferable, then delivery of the Shares must be made by electronic transfer provided request for such electronic transfer has been made by the Subscriber.   A Note representing the balance of the Note not so converted will be provided by the Company to Subscriber if requested by Subscriber, provided Subscriber delivers the original Note to the Company.

(c)           The Company understands that a delay in the delivery of the Conversion Shares in the form required pursuant to Section 7.1 hereof later than the Delivery Date could result in economic loss to the Subscribers.  As compensation to Subscribers for such loss, the Company agrees to pay (as liquidated damages and not as a penalty) to each applicable Subscriber for late issuance of Conversion Shares in the form required pursuant to Section 7.1 hereof upon Conversion of the Note, the amount of $100 per business day after the Delivery Date for each $10,000 of Note principal amount and interest (and proportionately for other amounts) being converted of the corresponding Conversion Shares which are not timely delivered.  The Company shall pay any payments incurred under this Section upon demand.  Furthermore, in addition to any other remedies which may be available to the Subscribers, in the event that the Company fails for any reason to effect delivery of the Conversion Shares on or before the Delivery Date, the Subscriber will be entitled to revoke all or part of the relevant Notice of Conversion by delivery of a notice to such effect to the Company whereupon the Company and Subscriber shall each be restored to their respective positions immediately prior to the delivery of such notice, except that the damages payable in connection with the Company’s default shall be payable through the date notice of revocation or rescission is given to the Company.

7.2.        Mandatory Redemption at Subscriber’s Election.  In the event (i) the Company is prohibited from issuing Conversion Shares, (ii) upon the occurrence of any other Event of Default (as defined in the Note, this Agreement or any other Transaction Document), that continues beyond any applicable cure period, (iii) a Change in Control (as defined below) occurs, or (iv) upon the liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company or any Subsidiary, then at the Subscriber's election, the Company must pay to each Subscriber not later than ten (10) days after request by such Subscriber, a sum of money determined by multiplying up to the outstanding principal amount of the Note designated by each such Subscriber by, at Subscriber’s election, the greater of (i) 115%, or (ii) a fraction the numerator of which is the highest closing price of the Common Stock for the thirty days preceding the date demand is made by Subscriber pursuant to this Section 7.2 and the denominator of which is the lowest applicable conversion price during such thirty (30) day period, plus accrued but unpaid interest and any other amounts due under the Transaction Documents ("Mandatory Redemption Payment"). The Mandatory Redemption Payment must be received by each Subscriber on the same date as the Conversion Shares otherwise deliverable or within ten (10) days after request, whichever is sooner ("Mandatory Redemption Payment Date"). Upon receipt of the Mandatory Redemption Payment, the corresponding Note principal, interest and other amounts will be deemed paid and no longer outstanding.  The Subscriber may rescind the election to receive a Mandatory Redemption Payment at any time until such payment is actually received.  Liquidated damages calculated pursuant to Section 7.1(c) hereof, that have been paid or accrued for the ten (10) day period prior to the actual receipt of the Mandatory Redemption Payment by such Subscriber shall be credited against the Mandatory Redemption Payment provided the balance of the Mandatory Redemption Payment is timely paid.  For purposes of this Section 7.2, “Change in Control” shall mean (i) the Company  becoming a Subsidiary of another entity (other than a corporation formed by the Company for purposes of reincorporation in another U.S. jurisdiction), (ii) the sale, lease or transfer of substantially all the assets of the Company or any Subsidiary, or (iii) a business transaction or reorganization as a result of which the shareholders of the Company immediately prior to the transaction or reorganization hold less than a majority of the voting interests of the surviving corporation or other entity after the transaction or reorganization, or any similar corporate or other reorganization on or after the Closing Date.  The foregoing notwithstanding, Subscriber may demand and receive from the Company the amount stated above or any other greater amount which Subscriber is entitled to receive or demand pursuant to the Transaction Documents.

7.3.        Maximum Conversion.  A Subscriber shall not be entitled to convert on a Conversion Date that amount of a Note nor may the Company make any payment including principal, interest, or liquidated or other damages by delivery of Conversion Shares in connection with that number of Conversion Shares which would be in excess of the sum of (i) the number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by such Subscriber and its Affiliates on a Conversion Date or payment date, and (ii) the number of Conversion Shares issuable upon the conversion of the Note with respect to which the determination of this provision is being made on a calculation date, which would result in beneficial ownership by Subscriber and its Affiliates of more than 9.99% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock of the Company on such Conversion Date.  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 Rule 13d-3 thereunder.  Subject to the foregoing, the Subscriber shall not be limited to aggregate conversions of only 9.99% and aggregate conversions by the Subscriber may exceed 9.99%.  The Subscriber shall have the authority to determine whether the restriction contained in this Section 7.3 will limit any conversion of a Note and the extent such limitation applies and to which convertible or exercisable instrument or part thereof such limitation applies.  The Subscriber may increase the permitted beneficial ownership amount upon and effective after 61 days prior written notice to the Company.  Subscriber may allocate which of the equity of the Company deemed beneficially owned by Subscriber shall be included in the 9.99% amount described above and which shall be allocated to the excess above 9.99%.

7.4.        Injunction Posting of Bond.  In the event a Subscriber shall elect to convert a Note or part thereof, or exercise a Warrant, the Company may not refuse conversion or exercise based on any claim that Subscriber or any one associated or affiliated with Subscriber has been engaged in any violation of law, or for any other reason, unless, a final non-appealable injunction from a court made on notice to Subscriber, restraining and or enjoining conversion of all or part of such Note or exercise of such Warrant shall have been sought and obtained by the Company or the Company has posted a surety bond for the benefit of Subscriber in the amount of 120% of the greater of the outstanding principal and accrued but unpaid interest of the Note, or aggregate purchase price of the Conversion Shares, or 120% of the aggregate exercise price of the Warrants which are sought to be subject to the injunction, which bond shall remain in effect until the completion of arbitration/litigation of the dispute and the proceeds of which shall be payable to Subscriber to the extent the judgment or decision is in Subscriber’s favor.

 
12

 

7.5.        Buy-In.   In addition to any other rights available to Subscribers, if the Company fails to deliver to a Subscriber Conversion Shares by the Delivery Date and if after the Delivery Date Subscriber or a broker on Subscriber’s behalf purchases (in an open market transaction or otherwise) shares of Common Stock to deliver in satisfaction of a sale by Subscriber of the Common Stock which Subscriber was entitled to receive upon such conversion (a “Buy-In”), then the Company shall pay to Subscriber (in addition to any remedies available to or elected by the Subscriber) the amount by which (A) Subscriber’s total purchase price (including brokerage commissions, if any) for the shares of Common Stock so purchased exceeds (B) the aggregate principal and/or interest amount of the Note for which such conversion request was not timely honored together with interest thereon at a rate of 15% per annum, accruing until such amount and any accrued interest thereon is paid in full (which amount shall be paid as liquidated damages and not as a penalty).  For example, if a Subscriber purchases shares of Common Stock having a total purchase price of $11,000 to cover a Buy-In with respect to an attempted conversion of $10,000 of Note principal and/or interest, the Company shall be required to pay Subscriber $1,000 plus interest. Subscriber shall provide the Company written notice and evidence indicating the amounts payable to Subscriber in respect of the Buy-In.

7.6.        Redemption.    The Note shall not be prepayable, redeemable or callable by the Company, without the Subscriber’s consent except as set forth in the Note.

8.           Fees.

(a)           Broker’s Commission.   The Company on the one hand, and each Subscriber (for himself only) on the other hand, agrees to indemnify the other against and hold the other harmless from any and all liabilities to any persons claiming brokerage commissions or similar fees on account of services purported to have been rendered on behalf of the indemnifying party in connection with this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby and arising out of such party’s actions.  The Company represents that there are no parties entitled to receive fees, commissions, finder’s fees, due diligence fees or similar payments in connection with the Offering, except as set forth on Schedule 8(a), which the Company agrees to pay upon Closing.  Anything in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, each Subscriber is providing indemnification only for such Subscriber’s own actions and not for any action of any other Subscriber.  The liability of the Company and each Subscriber’s liability hereunder is several and not joint.  The Company represents that to the best of its knowledge there are no other parties entitled to receive fees, commissions, or similar payments in connection with the Offering.

(b)           Subscriber’s Legal Fees.   The Company shall pay to Grushko & Mittman, P.C., a cash fee of $18,000 (“Legal Fees”) (of which $5,000 has been paid prior to Closing) as reimbursement for services rendered in connection with the transactions described in the Transaction Documents. The Legal Fees will be payable out of funds held pursuant to the Escrow Agreement.  Grushko & Mittman, P.C. will be reimbursed at Closing by the Company for all lien searches, filing fees, and reasonable printing and shipping costs for the closing statements to be delivered to Subscribers.

(b)           Listing/Quotation.  The Company shall promptly secure the quotation or listing of the Conversion Shares, Incentive Shares and Warrant Shares upon each national securities exchange, or automated quotation system upon which the Company’s Common Stock is quoted or listed and upon which such Conversion Shares, Incentive Shares and Warrant Shares are or become eligible for quotation or listing (subject to official notice of issuance) and shall maintain same so long as any Notes and Warrants are outstanding.  The Company will maintain the quotation or listing of its Common Stock on the NYSE Amex Equities, Nasdaq Capital Market, Nasdaq Global Market, Nasdaq Global Select Market, Bulletin Board, or New York Stock Exchange (whichever of the foregoing is at the time the principal trading exchange or market for the Common Stock (the “Principal Market”), and will comply in all respects with the Company’s reporting, filing and other obligations under the bylaws or rules of the Principal Market, as applicable. Subject to the limitation set forth in Section 9(n), the Company will provide Subscribers with copies of all notices it receives notifying the Company of the threatened and actual delisting of the Common Stock from any Principal Market.  As of the date of this Agreement and the Closing Date, the Bulletin Board is the Principal Market.

(c)           Market Regulations.  If required, the Company shall notify the Commission, the Principal Market and applicable state authorities, in accordance with their requirements, of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, and shall take all other necessary action and proceedings as may be required and permitted by applicable law, rule and regulation, for the legal and valid issuance of the Securities to the Subscribers and promptly provide copies thereof to the Subscribers.

(v)           Stock Splits.  For so long as the Notes are outstanding, the Company undertakes and covenants that without the consent of a Majority in Interest, the Company will not effectuate any stock splits of the Common Stock.  In the event the closing price of the Common Stock on a Principal Market on any trading day during the 120th through the 150th day after the Closing Date (“Calculation Period”) as reported by Bloomberg L.P. is less than $0.10, the Company agrees that upon instructions from a Majority In Interest at any time Notes are outstanding, the Company will effectuate a reverse split of the Common Stock within forty-five (45) days after such instructions are given.  The Majority In Interest will designate the ratio of such reverse split, which will be one (1) share for each x shares outstanding, with x being not more than .40 divided by the lowest closing price during the Calculation Period.

(w)          Notice of Event of Default.  The Company agrees to notify Subscriber of the occurrence of an Event of Default (as defined and employed in the Transaction Documents) not later than five (5) business days after any of the Company’s officers or directors becomes aware of such Event of Default.

(x)           Further Registration Statements.   The Company will not, without the consent of a Majority in Interest, file with the Commission or with state regulatory authorities any registration statements, shares reserved for outside securities counsel, or amend any already filed registration statement to increase the amount of Common Stock registered therein, or reduce the price of which such company securities are registered therein, until the expiration of the “Exclusion Period,” which shall be defined as the sooner of (i) the date all of the Registrable Securities (as defined in Section 11.1) have been registered in an effective registration statement that has been effective for not less than six months, or (ii) until all the Conversion Shares, Incentive Shares and Warrant Shares may be resold by the Subscribers pursuant to a registration statement or Rule 144b(1)(i), without regard to volume limitations.  The Exclusion Period will be tolled or reinstated, as the case may be, during the pendency of an Event of Default as defined in the Note.

(y)           Lockup Agreement.   The Company will deliver to the Subscribers on or before the Closing Date and enforce the provisions of irrevocable lockup agreements (“Lockup Agreement”) in the form annexed hereto as Exhibit F, with the persons identified on Schedule 9(y) with respect to the Common Stock and rights to acquire Common Stock set forth on Schedule 9(y).

10.         Covenants of the Company Regarding Indemnification.

(a)           The Company agrees to indemnify, hold harmless, reimburse and defend the Subscribers, the Subscribers’ officers, directors, agents, counsel, Affiliates, members, managers, control persons, and principal shareholders, against any claim, cost, expense, liability, obligation, loss or damage (including reasonable legal fees) of any nature, incurred by or imposed upon the Subscribers or any such person which results, arises out of or is based upon (i) any material misrepresentation by Company or breach of any representation or warranty by Company in this Agreement or in any Exhibits or Schedules attached hereto in any Transaction Document, or other agreement delivered pursuant hereto or in connection herewith, now or after the date hereof; or (ii) after any applicable notice and/or cure periods, any breach or default in performance by the Company of any covenant or undertaking to be performed by the Company hereunder, or any other agreement entered into by the Company and Subscribers relating hereto.

(b)           In no event shall the liability of the Subscribers or permitted successor hereunder or under any Transaction Document or other agreement delivered in connection herewith be greater in amount than the dollar amount of the net proceeds actually received by such Subscriber or successor upon the sale of Registrable Securities (as defined herein).

 
19

 

11.         Additional Post-Closing Obligations.

11.1.      Piggy-Back Registrations.   If at any time after the Closing Date there is not an effective registration statement covering all of the Conversion Shares, Warrant Shares and Incentive Shares and the Company determines to prepare and file with the Commission a registration statement relating to an offering for its own account or the account of others under the 1933 Act of any of its equity securities, but excluding Forms S-4 or S-8 and similar forms which do not permit such registration, then the Company shall send to each holder of any of the Securities written notice of such determination and, if within fifteen calendar days after receipt of such notice, any such holder shall so request in writing, the Company shall include in such registration statement all or any part of the Conversion Shares, Incentive Shares and Warrant Shares such holder requests to be registered, subject to customary underwriter cutbacks applicable to all holders of registration rights and any cutbacks in  accordance with guidance provided by the Securities and Exchange Commission (including, but not limited to, Rule 415).  The obligations of the Company under this Section may be waived by any holder of any of the Securities entitled to registration rights under this Section 11.1. The holders whose Conversion Shares, Incentive Shares and Warrant Shares are included or required to be included in such registration statement are granted the same rights, benefits, liquidated or other damages and indemnification granted to other holders of securities included in such registration statement.  In no event shall the liability of any holder of Securities or permitted successor in connection with any Conversion Shares and Warrant Shares included in any such registration statement be greater in amount than the dollar amount of the net proceeds actually received by such Subscriber upon the sale of the Conversion Shares, Incentive Shares and Warrant Shares sold pursuant to such registration or such lesser amount in proportion to all other holders of Securities included in such registration statement. All expenses incurred by the Company in complying with Section 11, including, without limitation, all registration and filing fees, printing expenses (if required), fees and disbursements of counsel and independent public accountants for the Company, fees and expenses (including reasonable counsel fees) incurred in connection with complying with state securities or “blue sky” laws, fees of the NASD, transfer taxes, and fees of transfer agents and registrars, are called “Registration Expenses.” All underwriting discounts and selling commissions applicable to the sale of registrable securities are called "Selling Expenses."  The Company will pay all Registration Expenses in connection with the registration statement under Section 11.  Selling Expenses in connection with each registration statement under Section 11 shall be borne by the holder and will be apportioned among such holders in proportion to the number of Shares included therein for a holder relative to all the Securities included therein for all selling holders, or as all holders may agree.

11.2.      Unlegended Shares and 144 Sales.

(a)           Delivery of Unlegended Shares.  Within three (3) business days (such third (3rd) day being the “Unlegended Shares Delivery Date”) after the day on which the Company has received (i) a notice that Conversion Shares, Warrant Shares or any other Common Stock held by Subscriber has been sold pursuant to a registration statement or Rule 144 under the 1933 Act, (ii) a representation that the prospectus delivery requirements, or the requirements of Rule 144, as applicable and if required, have been satisfied, (iii) the original share certificates representing the shares of Common Stock that have been sold, and (iv) in the case of sales under Rule 144, customary representation letters of the Subscriber and, if required, Subscriber’s broker regarding compliance with the requirements of Rule 144, the Company at its expense, (y) shall deliver, and shall cause legal counsel selected by the Company to deliver to its transfer agent (with copies to Subscriber) an appropriate instruction and opinion of such counsel, directing the delivery of shares of Common Stock without any legends including the legend set forth in Section 4(h) above (the “Unlegended Shares”); and (z) cause the transmission of the certificates representing the Unlegended Shares together with a legended certificate representing the balance of the submitted Common Stock certificate, if any, to the Subscriber at the address specified in the notice of sale, via express courier, by electronic transfer or otherwise on or before the Unlegended Shares Delivery Date.

 
20

 

(b)           DWAC.   In lieu of delivering physical certificates representing the Unlegended Shares, upon request of a Subscriber, so long as the certificates therefor do not bear a legend and the Subscriber is not obligated to return such certificate for the placement of a legend thereon, the Company shall cause its transfer agent to electronically transmit the Unlegended Shares by crediting the account of Subscriber’s prime broker with the Depository Trust Company through its Deposit Withdrawal Agent Commission system, if such transfer agent participates in such DWAC system.  Such delivery must be made on or before the Unlegended Shares Delivery Date.

(c)           Late Delivery of Unlegended Shares.   The Company understands that a delay in the delivery of the Unlegended Shares pursuant to Section 11.2 hereof later than the Unlegended Shares Delivery Date could result in economic loss to a Subscriber.  As compensation to a Subscriber for such loss, the Company agrees to pay late payment fees (as liquidated damages and not as a penalty) to the Subscriber for late delivery of Unlegended Shares in the amount of $100 per business day after the Unlegended Shares Delivery Date for each $10,000 of purchase price of the Unlegended Shares subject to the delivery default.  If during any 360 day period, the Company fails to deliver Unlegended Shares as required by this Section 11.2 for an aggregate of thirty days, then each Subscriber or assignee holding Securities subject to such default may, at its option, require the Company to redeem all or any portion of the Unlegended Shares subject to such default at a price per share equal to the greater of (i) 115% of the Purchase Price paid by the Subscriber for the Unlegended Shares that were not timely delivered, or (ii) a fraction in which the numerator is the highest closing price of the Common Stock during the aforedescribed thirty day period and the denominator of which is the lowest conversion price or exercise price, as the case may be, during such thirty day period, multiplied by the price paid by Subscriber for such Common Stock (“Unlegended Redemption Amount”).  The Company shall pay any payments incurred under this Section in immediately available funds upon demand.

(d)           Injunction.  In the event a Subscriber shall request delivery of Unlegended Shares as described in Section 11.2 and the Company is required to deliver such Unlegended Shares pursuant to Section 11.2, the Company may not refuse to deliver Unlegended Shares based on any claim that such Subscriber or any one associated or affiliated with such Subscriber has not complied with Subscriber’s obligations under the Transaction Documents, or for any other reason, unless, an injunction or temporary restraining order from a court, on notice, restraining and or enjoining delivery of such Unlegended Shares shall have been sought and obtained by the Company and the Company has posted a surety bond for the benefit of such Subscriber in the amount of the greater of (i) 125% of the amount of the aggregate purchase price of the Common Stock which is subject to the injunction or temporary restraining order, (ii) the closing price of the Common Stock on the trading day before the issue date of the injunction multiplied by the number of Unlegended Shares to be subject to the injunction, which bond shall remain in effect until the completion of arbitration/litigation of the dispute and the proceeds of which shall be payable to such Subscriber to the extent Subscriber obtains judgment in Subscriber’s favor.

(e)           Buy-In.   In addition to any other rights available to Subscriber, if the Company fails to deliver to a Subscriber Unlegended Shares as required pursuant to this Agreement and after the Unlegended Shares Delivery Date the Subscriber, or a broker on the Subscriber’s behalf, purchases (in an open market transaction or otherwise) shares of common stock to deliver in satisfaction of a sale by such Subscriber of the shares of Common Stock which the Subscriber was entitled to receive from the Company (a “Buy-In”), then the Company shall promptly pay in cash to the Subscriber (in addition to any remedies available to or elected by the Subscriber) the amount by which (A) the Subscriber’s total purchase price (including brokerage commissions, if any) for the shares of common stock so purchased exceeds (B) the aggregate purchase price of the shares of Common Stock delivered to the Company for reissuance as Unlegended Shares together with interest thereon at a rate of 15% per annum accruing until such amount and any accrued interest thereon is paid in full (which amount shall be paid as liquidated damages and not as a penalty).  For example, if a Subscriber purchases shares of Common Stock having a total purchase price of $11,000 to cover a Buy-In with respect to $10,000 of purchase price of shares of Common Stock delivered to the Company for reissuance as Unlegended Shares, the Company shall be required to pay the Subscriber $1,000, plus interest. The Subscriber shall provide the Company written notice indicating the amounts payable to the Subscriber in respect of the Buy-In.

 
21

 
 
(f)           144 Default.   At any time commencing six months after the Closing Date, in the event the Subscriber is not permitted to sell any of the Conversion Shares or Warrant Shares without any restrictive legend or if such sales are permitted but subject to volume limitations or further restrictions on resale as a result of the unavailability to Subscriber of Rule 144(b)(1)(i) under the 1933 Act or any successor rule (a “144 Default”), for any reason including but not limited to failure by the Company to file quarterly, annual or any other filings required to be made by the Company by the required filing dates (provided that any filing made within the time for a valid extension shall be deemed to have been timely filed), or the Company’s failure to make information publicly available which would allow Subscriber’s reliance on Rule 144 in connection with sales of Conversion Shares or Warrant Shares, except due to a change in current applicable securities laws or because the Subscriber is an Affiliate (as defined under Rule 144) of the Company, then the Company shall pay such Subscriber as liquidated damages and not as a penalty for each thirty days (or such lesser pro-rata amount for any period less than thirty days) an amount equal to two percent (2%) of the purchase price of the Conversion Shares and Warrant Shares subject to such 144 Default.  Liquidated Damages shall not be payable pursuant to this Section 11.2(f) in connection with Shares for such times as such Shares may be sold by the holder thereof without any legend or volume or other restrictions pursuant to Section 144(b)(1)(i) of the 1933 Act or pursuant to an effective registration statement.

12.           (a)           Favored Nations Provision.  Other than in connection with (i) full or partial consideration in connection with a bona fide strategic merger, acquisition, consolidation or purchase of substantially all of the securities or assets of a corporation or other entity so long as such issuances are not for the purpose of raising capital and which holders of such securities or debt are not at any time granted registration rights, (ii) the Company’s issuance of securities in connection with bona fide strategic license agreements and other bona fide partnering arrangements so long as such issuances are not for the purpose of raising capital and which holders of such securities or debt are not at any time granted registration rights, (iii) the Company’s issuance of Common Stock or the issuances or grants of options to purchase Common Stock to employees, directors, and consultants, pursuant to plans described on Schedule 5(d) as such plans are constituted on the Closing Date, (iv) securities upon the exercise or exchange of or conversion of any securities exercisable or exchangeable for or convertible into shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding on the date of this Agreement on the unamended terms disclosed in the Reports and which securities are also described on Schedule 12(a), (v) the Required Offering, and (vi) as a result of the exercise of Warrants or conversion of Notes which are granted or issued pursuant to this Agreement on the unamended terms in effect on the Closing Date, (collectively, the foregoing (i) through (vi) are “Excepted Issuances”), if at any time the Notes or Warrants are outstanding, the Company shall agree to or issue (the “Lower Price Issuance”) any Common Stock or securities convertible into or exercisable for shares of Common Stock (or modify any of the foregoing which may be outstanding) to any person or entity at a price per share or conversion or exercise price per share which shall be less than the Conversion Price in effect at such time, or if less than the Warrant exercise price in effect at such time, without the consent of the Subscribers, then the Conversion Price and Warrant exercise price shall automatically be reduced to such other lower price.  The average Conversion Price of the Conversion Shares and average exercise price in relation to the Warrant Shares shall be calculated separately for the Conversion Shares and Warrant Shares.    Common Stock issued or issuable by the Company for no consideration or for consideration that cannot be determined at the time of issue will be deemed issuable or to have been issued for $0.0001 per share of Common Stock.  For purposes of the issuance and adjustments described in this paragraph, the issuance of any security of the Company carrying the right to convert such security into shares of Common Stock or any warrant, right or option to purchase Common Stock shall result in the issuance of the additional shares of Common Stock upon the sooner of the agreement to or actual issuance of such convertible security, warrant, right or options and again at any time upon any subsequent issuances of shares of Common Stock upon exercise of such conversion or purchase rights if such issuance is at a price lower than the Conversion Price or Warrant exercise price in effect upon such issuance.  The rights of Subscribers set forth in this Section 12(a) are in addition to any other rights the Subscribers have pursuant to this Agreement, the Notes, Warrants, any other Transaction Document, and any other agreement referred to or entered into in connection herewith or to which Subscribers and Company are parties.

 
22

 

(b)           Right of First Offer.  Until twelve (12) months following the Closing Date, and excluding the Required Offering set forth in Section 9(r), the Subscribers shall be given not less than ten (10) days prior written notice of any proposed offer by the Company of its common stock or other securities or equity linked debt obligations (“Other Offering”), except in connection with the Excepted Issuances described in Section 12(a)(i) through (iv) and Section 12(a)(vi).  If Subscribers elect to exercise their rights pursuant to this Section 12(b), the Subscribers shall have the right during the ten (10) days following receipt of the notice, to purchase in the aggregate up to all of such offered common stock, debt or other securities in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in the notice, relative to each other in proportion to the amount of Note Principal issued to them on the Closing Date.  Subscribers who participate in such Other Offering shall be entitled at their option to purchase, in proportion to each other, the amount of such Other Offering that could have been purchased by Subscribers who do not exercise their rights hereunder until up to the entire Other Offering is purchased by Subscribers.  In the event such terms and conditions are modified during the notice period, Subscribers shall be given prompt notice of such modification and shall have the right during the ten (10) days following the notice of modification to exercise such right.

(c)           Maximum Exercise of Rights.   In the event the exercise of the rights described in Section 12(a) and Section 12(b) would or could result in the issuance of an amount of Common Stock of the Company that would exceed the maximum amount that may be issued to a Subscriber calculated in the manner described in Section 7.3 of this Agreement, then the issuance of such additional shares of Common Stock of the Company to such Subscriber will be deferred in whole or in part until such time as such Subscriber is able to beneficially own such Common Stock without exceeding the applicable maximum amount set forth calculated in the manner described in Section 7.3 of this Agreement and such Subscriber notifies the Company accordingly.

13.         Miscellaneous.

(a)           Notices.  All notices, demands, requests, consents, approvals, and other communications required or permitted hereunder shall be in writing and, unless otherwise specified herein, shall be (i) personally served, (ii) deposited in the mail, registered or certified, return receipt requested, postage prepaid, (iii) delivered by reputable air courier service with charges prepaid, or (iv) transmitted by hand delivery, telegram, or facsimile, addressed as set forth below or to such other address as such party shall have specified most recently by written notice.  Any notice or other communication required or permitted to be given hereunder shall be deemed effective (a) upon hand delivery or delivery by facsimile, with accurate confirmation generated by the transmitting facsimile machine, at the address or number designated below (if delivered on a business day during normal business hours where such notice is to be received), or the first business day following such delivery (if delivered other than on a business day during normal business hours where such notice is to be received) or (b) on the second business day following the date of mailing by express courier service, fully prepaid, addressed to such address, or upon actual receipt of such mailing, whichever shall first occur.

(c)           Counterparts/Execution.  This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts and by the different signatories hereto on separate counterparts, each of which, when so executed, shall be deemed an original, but all such counterparts shall constitute but one and the same instrument.  This Agreement may be executed by facsimile transmission, PDF, electronic signature or other similar electronic means with the same force and effect as if such signature page were an original thereof.

(d)           Law Governing this Agreement.  This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York without regard to principles of conflicts of laws. Any action brought by either party against the other concerning the transactions contemplated by this Agreement shall be brought only in the state courts of New York or in the federal courts located in the state and county of New York.  The parties to this Agreement hereby irrevocably waive any objection to jurisdiction and venue of any action instituted hereunder and shall not assert any defense based on lack of jurisdiction or venue or based upon forum non conveniens.  The parties executing this Agreement and other agreements referred to herein or delivered in connection herewith on behalf of the Company agree to submit to the in personam jurisdiction of such courts and hereby irrevocably waive trial by jury.  The prevailing party shall be entitled to recover from the other party its reasonable attorney’s fees and costs.  In the event that any provision of this Agreement or any other agreement delivered in connection herewith is invalid or unenforceable under any applicable statute or rule of law, then such provision shall be deemed inoperative to the extent that it may conflict therewith and shall be deemed modified to conform with such statute or rule of law.  Any such provision which may prove invalid or unenforceable under any law shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision of any agreement.  Each party hereby irrevocably waives personal service of process and consents to process being served in any suit, action or proceeding in connection with this Agreement or any other Transaction Document by mailing a copy thereof via registered or certified mail or overnight delivery (with evidence of delivery) to such party at the address in effect for notices to it under this Agreement and agrees that such service shall constitute good and sufficient service of process and notice thereof.  Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to limit in any way any right to serve process in any other manner permitted by law.

(e)           Specific Enforcement, Consent to Jurisdiction.  The Company and Subscribers acknowledge and agree that irreparable damage would occur in the event that any of the provisions of this Agreement were not performed in accordance with their specific terms or were otherwise breached.  It is accordingly agreed that the parties shall be entitled to seek an injunction or injunctions to prevent or cure breaches of the provisions of this Agreement and to enforce specifically the terms and provisions hereof, this being in addition to any other remedy to which any of them may be entitled by law or equity.  Subject to Section 13(d) hereof, the Company and each Subscriber hereby irrevocably waives, and agrees not to assert in any such suit, action or proceeding, any claim that it is not personally subject to the jurisdiction in New York of such court, that the suit, action or proceeding is brought in an inconvenient forum or that the venue of the suit, action or proceeding is improper.  Nothing in this Section shall affect or limit any right to serve process in any other manner permitted by law.

 
24

 

(f)           Damages.   In the event the Subscriber is entitled to receive any liquidated or other damages pursuant to the Transactions Documents, the Subscriber may elect to receive the greater of actual damages or such liquidated damages.  In the event the Subscriber is granted rights under different sections of the Transaction Documents relating to the same subject matter or which may be exercised contemporaneously, or pursuant to which damages or remedies are different, Subscriber is granted the right in Subscriber’s absolute discretion to proceed under such section as Subscriber elects.

(g)          Maximum Payments.   Nothing contained herein or in any document referred to herein or delivered in connection herewith shall be deemed to establish or require the payment of a rate of interest or other charges in excess of the maximum permitted by applicable law.  In the event that the rate of interest or dividends required to be paid or other charges hereunder exceed the maximum permitted by such law, any payments in excess of such maximum shall be credited against amounts owed by the Company to the Subscribers and thus refunded to the Company.  The Company agrees that it may not and actually waives any right to challenge the effectiveness or applicability of this Section 13(g).

(h)          Calendar Days.   All references to “days” in the Transaction Documents shall mean calendar days unless otherwise stated.  The terms “business days” and “trading days” shall mean days that the New York Stock Exchange is open for trading for three or more hours.  Time periods shall be determined as if the relevant action, calculation or time period were occurring in New York City.  Any deadline that falls on a non-business day in any of the Transaction Documents shall be automatically extended to the next business day and interest, if any, shall be calculated and payable through such extended period.

(i)           Captions: Certain Definitions.  The captions of the various sections and paragraphs of this Agreement have been inserted only for the purposes of convenience; such captions are not a part of this Agreement and shall not be deemed in any manner to modify, explain, enlarge or restrict any of the provisions of this Agreement.  As used in this Agreement the term “person” shall mean and include an individual, a partnership, a joint venture, a corporation, a limited liability company, a trust, an unincorporated organization and a government or any department or agency thereof.

(j)          Consent.   As used in this Agreement and the Transaction Documents and any other agreement delivered in connection herewith, “Consent of the Subscribers” or similar language means the consent of holders of more than fifty percent (50%) of the outstanding Principal Amount of Notes on the date consent is requested (such Subscribers being a “Majority in Interest”).  A Majority in Interest may consent to take or forebear from any action permitted under or in connection with the Transaction Documents, modify any Transaction Documents or waive any default or requirement applicable to the Company, Subsidiaries or Subscribers under the Transaction Documents provided the effect of such action does not waive any accrued interest or damages and further provided that the relative rights of the Subscribers to each other remains unchanged.

(k)          Severability.  In the event that any term or provision of this Agreement shall be finally determined to be superseded, invalid, illegal or otherwise unenforceable pursuant to applicable law by an authority having jurisdiction and venue, that determination shall not impair or otherwise affect the validity, legality or enforceability: (i) by or before that authority of the remaining terms and provisions of this Agreement, which shall be enforced as if the unenforceable term or provision were deleted, or (ii) by or before any other authority of any of the terms and provisions of this Agreement.

 
25

 

(l)           Successor Laws.  References in the Transaction Documents to laws, rules, regulations and forms shall also include successors to and functionally equivalent replacements of such laws, rules, regulations and forms.  A successor rule to Rule 144(b)(1)(i) shall include any rule that would be available to a non-Affiliate of the Company for the sale of Common Stock not subject to volume restrictions and after a six month holding period.

(m)          Maximum Liability.   In no event shall the liability of the Subscribers or permitted successor hereunder or under any Transaction Document or other agreement delivered in connection herewith be greater in amount than the dollar amount of the net proceeds actually received by such Subscriber or successor upon the sale of Conversion Shares.

(n)          Independent Nature of Subscribers.     The Company acknowledges that the obligations of each Subscriber under the Transaction Documents are several and not joint with the obligations of any other Subscriber, and no Subscriber shall be responsible in any way for the performance of the obligations of any other Subscriber under the Transaction Documents. The Company acknowledges that each Subscriber has represented that the decision of each Subscriber to purchase Securities has been made by such Subscriber independently of any other Subscriber and independently of any information, materials, statements or opinions as to the business, affairs, operations, assets, properties, liabilities, results of operations, condition (financial or otherwise) or prospects of the Company which may have been made or given by any other Subscriber or by any agent or employee of any other Subscriber, and no Subscriber or any of its agents or employees shall have any liability to any other Subscriber (or any other person) relating to or arising from any such information, materials, statements or opinions.  The Company acknowledges that nothing contained in any Transaction Document, and no action taken by any Subscriber pursuant hereto or thereto shall be deemed to constitute the Subscribers as a partnership, an association, a joint venture or any other kind of entity, or create a presumption that the Subscribers are in any way acting in concert or as a group with respect to such obligations or the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents.  The Company acknowledges that it has elected to provide all Subscribers with the same terms and Transaction Documents for the convenience of the Company and not because Company was required or requested to do so by the Subscribers.  The Company acknowledges that such procedure with respect to the Transaction Documents in no way creates a presumption that the Subscribers are in any way acting in concert or as a group with respect to the Transaction Documents or the transactions contemplated thereby.

(o)           Equal Treatment.   No consideration shall be offered or paid to any person to amend or consent to a waiver or modification of any provision of the Transaction Documents unless the same consideration is also offered and paid to all the Subscribers and their permitted successors and assigns.

(p)           Adjustments.   The conversion price, Warrant exercise price, amount of Conversion Shares and Warrant Shares, trading volume amounts, price/volume amounts and similar figures in the Transaction Documents shall be equitably adjusted and as otherwise described in this Agreement, the Notes and Warrants.
