WARRANT SUBSCRIPTION AGREEMENT, dated as of May 13, 2011 (this “Agreement”), by and between Fred R. Adams, (the “Purchaser”), and Universal Business Payment Solutions Acquisition Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”).
 
 
 
INTRODUCTION
 
In connection with the consummation of the Company’s initial public offering (the “IPO”), the Company desires to issue and sell, and Purchaser desires to purchase, on the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, 50,000 warrants (the “Warrants”), each to purchase one share of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”) at an initial exercise price of $6.90 per Warrant.
 
The Warrants shall have the terms set forth in the warrant agreement to be entered into by and between the Company and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company (“Continental”), as Warrant Agent, in connection with the IPO, substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A (the “Warrant Agreement”).
 
In consideration of the premises and the mutual covenants and agreements contained in this Agreement, Purchaser and the Company agree as follows:
 
1.           Purchase and Sale of Warrants.  The purchase and sale of the Warrants shall occur simultaneously with the consummation of the IPO.  At least 24 hours prior to the date of the final prospectus in connection with the IPO, the undersigned shall deliver $25,000.00 (the “Purchase Price”) to Continental or such other agent as may be agreed to by the parties hereto (“Agent”) to hold in an account until the Company consummates the IPO.  Simultaneously with the consummation of the IPO, Agent shall deposit the Purchase Price, without interest or deduction, into a trust account established by the Company for the benefit of the Company’s public stockholders at JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., and maintained by Continental, as trustee.  In the event that the IPO is not consummated within fourteen (14) days of the date the Purchase Price is delivered to Agent, Agent shall return the Purchase Price to the Purchaser, with accrued interest.
 
2.           Terms of the Warrants.  Each Warrant shall have the terms set forth in the Warrant Agreement.  In connection with the IPO, the Company and Purchaser shall enter into an agreement granting holders of the Warrants registration rights with respect to the Warrants and the shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrants (the “Warrant Shares” and, together with the Warrants, the “Securities”).
 
3.           Investment Representations and Covenants.
 
(a)           Purchaser is acquiring the Warrants for his, her or its own account, for investment only and not with a view towards, or for resale in connection with, any public sale or distribution thereof.  Unless a registration statement is effective at the time of exercise of the Warrants, the Purchaser covenants to acquire the Warrant Shares for his, her or its own account, for investment only and not with a view towards, or for resale in connection with, any public sale or distribution thereof.
 
(b)           Purchaser is an accredited investor as such term is defined in Rule 501 of Regulation D promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). Purchaser understands that its investment in the Securities involves a high degree of risk. Purchaser has sought such accounting, legal and tax advice as Purchaser has considered necessary to make an informed decision with respect to the Purchaser’s acquisition of such Securities. Purchaser has knowledge and experience in financial and business matters and knows of the high degree of risk associated with investments generally and particularly investments in the securities of development stage companies. Purchaser is able to bear the economic risk of an investment in the Securities in the amount contemplated hereunder for an indefinite period of time. Purchaser can afford a complete loss of its investment in the Securities. Purchaser has had access to all information that it believes is necessary, sufficient or appropriate in connection with the purchase of the Warrants.
 
 
 

 
 
(c)           Purchaser understands that the Securities have not been and are not being registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws, except as may be contemplated by any registration rights agreement between the Company and the Purchaser, and may not be offered for sale, sold, assigned or transferred unless (i) subsequently registered thereunder or (ii) sold in reliance on an exemption therefrom.  No U.S. federal or state agency or any other government or governmental agency has passed on or made any recommendation or endorsement of the Securities or the fairness or suitability of the investment in the Securities nor have any such governmental authorities passed upon or endorsed the merits of the offering of the Securities.
 
(d)           Purchaser understands that the Securities are being offered and will be sold to it in reliance on specific exemptions from the registration requirements of the U.S. federal and state securities laws and that the Company is relying upon the truth and accuracy of, and the Purchaser’s compliance with, the representations and warranties of the Purchaser set forth herein in order to determine the availability of such exemptions and the eligibility of the Purchaser to acquire such Securities.
