Item 1.01    Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

As previously reported in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed on March 26, 2018, by DPW Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”), the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement dated March 23, 2018, with an institutional investor (the “Investor”) providing for the issuance of (i) a 12% Note in the principal amount of $1,000,000 at a 10% original issue discount (the “Original Note”) and (ii) a five-year warrant to purchase up to 15,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (“Common Stock”) at an exercise price of $23.00, as adjusted to give effect to the Company’s reverse stock split on March 14, 2019.

 

On July 3, 2019 (the “Closing Date”), the Company and the Investor entered into an Exchange Agreement (the “Agreement”), pursuant to which, in exchange for the Original Note, the Company shall issue a Convertible Promissory Note in the principal face amount of $1,292,000 plus a default premium of $200,000, for an aggregate of $1,492,000, subject to adjustments (the “New Note”), and (ii) a five-year warrant (the “Warrant”) to purchase of 1,000,000 shares of Common Stock, subject to adjustments, at an exercise price of $0.22 per share (the “Warrant Shares”), subject to the approval thereof by the NYSE American.

 

Description of Convertible Promissory Note

 

The New Note is in the aggregate principal amount of $1,492,000 and bears interest at 12% per annum, which principal and all accrued and unpaid interest are due on January 22, 2020 (the “Maturity Date”), or upon acceleration, prepayment or otherwise in accordance with the terms of the New Note, and which interest shall be payable in cash, in arrears, on the first business day of each month, with the first payment of interest due on August 1, 2019. Commencing on July 15, 2019, subject to certain beneficial ownership limitations, the Investor may convert the principal amount of the New Note and accrued interest earned thereon at any time into shares of the Company’s common stock at $0.22 per share (the “Conversion Shares” and with the Warrant Shares, the “Shares”), subject to adjustment for customary stock splits, stock dividends, combinations or similar events.

 

The New Note contains standard and customary events of default including, but not limited to, failure to make payments when due under the New Note, failure to comply with certain covenants contained in the New Note, or bankruptcy or insolvency of the Company. Any principal or interest on the New Note which is not paid when due shall bear interest at the rate of the lesser of (i) eighteen percent (18%) per annum and (ii) the maximum amount permitted by law from the due date thereof until the same is paid.

 

So long as no event of default exists, the Company may prepay, in part or in full, the outstanding principal and accrued and unpaid interest upon ten (10) days written notice to the Investor (the “Notice”). If the Company exercises its right to prepay the New Note, the Company shall make payment to the Investor of an amount in cash equal to either of (i) 105% if the Notice is delivered within three (3) months of the date of issuance or (ii) 110% if the Notice is delivered at any time thereafter, multiplied by the sum of: (a) the then outstanding principal of the New Note plus any accrued and unpaid interest thereon, and (b) if applicable, the Default Interest and other amounts due, if any, on the New Note.

 

During the term of the New Note, in the event that the Company grants, issues or sells any Options, Convertible Securities or rights to purchase stock, warrants, securities or other property pro rata to all or substantially all of the record holders of any class of Common Stock (the “Purchase Rights”), the Investor will be entitled to acquire, upon the terms applicable to such Purchase Rights, the aggregate Purchase Rights which the Investor could have acquired if the Investor had held the number of shares of Common Stock acquirable upon complete conversion of the New Note immediately prior to the date on which a record is taken for the grant, issuance or sale of such Purchase Rights, or, if no such record is taken, the date as of which the record holders of shares of Common Stock are to be determined for the grant, issue or sale of such Purchase Rights.

 

Description of Warrants

 

The Warrant entitles the Investor to purchase, in the aggregate, up to 1,000,000 Warrant Shares at an exercise price of $0.22 per share for a period of five years subject to certain beneficial ownership limitations. The Warrant is immediately exercisable once the Company obtains approval thereof by the NYSE American. The exercise price of $0.22 is subject to adjustment for customary stock splits, stock dividends, combinations or similar events. The Warrant may be exercised for cash or on a cashless basis.

CONVERTIBLE PROMISSORY NOTE DUE JANUARY 22, 2020

 

 

Issuance Date: July 3, 2019 Principal Amount: $1,492,000.00

 

FOR VALUE RECEIVED, DPW Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), hereby promises to pay to the order of [●], a [●] limited liability company with an address at [●], or its registered assigns (“Holder”) the amount set forth above as the original principal amount (the “Principal”) when due, whether upon January 22, 2020 (the “Maturity Date”), or upon acceleration, prepayment or otherwise (in each case in accordance with the terms hereof) and to pay interest (“Interest”) on any outstanding Principal at the applicable Interest Rate (as defined below) from the date set forth above as the Issuance Date (the “Issuance Date”) until the same becomes due and payable, whether upon the Maturity Date or upon acceleration, conversion, prepayment or otherwise (in each case in accordance with the terms hereof). This Convertible Promissory Note (this “Note”) is issued to the Holder as of the Issuance Date by the Company. Certain capitalized terms used herein are defined in Section 28. The Company acknowledges and agrees that the exchange of this Note for the Promissory Note issued on March 23, 2018 (the “Prior Note”) pursuant to the Exchange Agreement dated of even date herewith, did not involve the payment of, or giving of a commission, or other remuneration, directly or indirectly, in connection with, the exchange and that the exchange was exempt from registration under Section 3(a)(9) of the 1933 Act. In addition, the Company acknowledges and agrees that the exchange of the Prior Note for this Note did not involve the payment of, or giving of a commission, or other remuneration, directly or indirectly, in connection with, the exchange and that the exchange was exempt from registration under Section 3(a)(9) of the 1933 Act. Accordingly, the Company shall at all times agree that the holding period of this Note tacks back to March 23, 2018 for purposes of the sum of $1,292,000 of the Principal for purposes of Rule 144 under the 1933 Act but the date of this Note for purposes of the Default Premium of $200,000. All terms used but not defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed thereto in the Exchange Agreement.

 

1.            PAYMENTS OF PRINCIPAL.

 

On the Maturity Date, the Company shall pay to the Holder an amount in cash representing all outstanding Principal, accrued and unpaid Interest and accrued and unpaid Late Charges on such Principal and Interest. Other than as specifically permitted by this Note, the Company may not prepay any portion of the outstanding Principal, accrued and unpaid Interest or accrued and unpaid Late Charges on Principal and Interest, if any.

 

   
 

 

2.             INTEREST; INTEREST RATE.

 

(a)       Interest on this Note shall commence accruing on July 3, 2019 at 12% per annum subject to adjustment in accordance with the terms of this Section 2 (the “Interest Rate”), shall be calculated on the basis of a 360-day year and twelve 30-day months, compounded daily, and shall be payable by the Company to the Holder, in cash, in arrears, on the first business day of each month, with the first payment of interest due on August 1, 2019, with all accrued but unpaid interest due on the Maturity Date.

 

(b)       From and after the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default, the Interest Rate shall automatically be increased to the higher of 18.0% per annum or the highest amount permitted by law, shall compound daily (the “Default Interest”), and shall be due and payable in arrears on the first Trading Day of each calendar month during the continuance of such Event of Default (a “Default Interest Payment Date”). In the event that such Event of Default is subsequently cured (and no other Event of Default then exists (including, without limitation, for the Company’s failure to pay such Interest at the Default Rate on the applicable Default Interest Payment Date), the adjustment of the interest rate referred to above in this Section 2(b), the adjustment shall cease to be effective as of the day immediately following the date of such cure; provided that the Interest as calculated and unpaid at such increased rate during the continuance of such Event of Default shall continue to apply to the extent relating to the days after the occurrence of such Event of Default through and including the date of such cure of such Event of Default.

 

3.            CONVERSION OF NOTES. Provided that the Exchange Approval shall have been obtained at such time, commencing on July 15, 2019 (the later of such dates, the “Initial Conversion Date”), this Note shall be convertible into validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable shares (the “Conversion Shares”) of the Company’s common Stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), on the terms and conditions set forth in this Section 3.

 

(a)       Conversion Right. Subject to the provisions of Section 3(d), at any time following the Initial Conversion Date, the Holder shall be entitled to convert any portion of the outstanding and unpaid Conversion Amount (as defined below) into Conversion Shares in accordance with Section 3(b), at the Conversion Rate (as defined below). The Company shall not issue any fraction of a Conversion Share upon any conversion. If the issuance would result in the issuance of a fraction of a share of Common Stock, the Company shall round such fraction of a share of Common Stock up to the nearest whole share. The Company shall pay any and all transfer, stamp, issuance and similar taxes, costs and expenses (including, without limitation, fees and expenses of the Transfer Agent (as defined below)) that may be payable with respect to the issuance and delivery of Common Stock upon conversion of any Conversion Amount.

 

(b)       Conversion Rate. The number of Conversion Shares issuable upon conversion of any Conversion Amount pursuant to Section 3(a) shall be determined by dividing (x) such Conversion Amount by (y) the Conversion Price (the “Conversion Rate”).

 

(i)       “Conversion Amount” means the sum of (x) portion of the Principal to be converted, prepaid or otherwise with respect to which this determination is being made and (y) all accrued and unpaid Interest with respect to such portion of the Principal amount and accrued and unpaid Late Charges with respect to such portion of such Principal and such Interest, if any.

 

(ii)       “Conversion Price” means, as of any Conversion Date, $0.22 per share, subject to equitable adjustments resulting from any stock splits, stock dividends, combinations, recapitalizations or similar events. The Company shall issue irrevocable instructions to its Transfer Agent regarding conversions such that the transfer agent shall be authorized and instructed to issue shares of Common Stock upon its receipt of a Conversion Notice without further approval or authorization from the Company.

(c)       Mechanics of Conversion.

 

(i)       Optional Conversion. To convert any Conversion Amount into Conversion Shares on any date (a “Conversion Date”), the Holder shall deliver to the Company (whether via facsimile, electronic mail or otherwise), for receipt on or prior to 11:59 p.m., New York time, on such date, a copy of an executed notice of conversion in the form attached hereto as Exhibit I (the “Conversion Notice”). If required pursuant to Section 3(c)(iii) hereof, within two Trading Days following a conversion of this Note as aforesaid, the Holder shall surrender this Note to a nationally recognized overnight delivery service for delivery to the Company (or an indemnification undertaking with respect to this Note in the case of its loss, theft or destruction as contemplated by Section 15(b)). On or before the first Trading Day following the date of receipt of a Conversion Notice, the Company shall transmit by facsimile or electronic mail an acknowledgment of confirmation and representation as to whether such Conversion Shares may then be resold pursuant to Rule 144 or an effective and available registration statement, in the form attached hereto as Exhibit II, of receipt of such Conversion Notice to the Holder and the Transfer Agent which confirmation shall constitute an instruction to the Transfer Agent to process such Conversion Notice in accordance with the terms herein. On or before the second Trading Day following the date on which the Company has received a Conversion Notice (or such earlier date as required pursuant to the 1934 Act or other applicable law, rule or regulation for the settlement of a trade initiated on the applicable Conversion Date of such shares of Common Stock issuable pursuant to such Conversion Notice) (the “Share Delivery Deadline”), the Company shall (1) provided that the Transfer Agent is participating in the DTC Fast Automated Securities Transfer Program, credit such aggregate number of shares of Common Stock to which the Holder shall be entitled pursuant to such conversion to the Holder’s or its designee’s balance account with DTC through its Deposit/Withdrawal at Custodian system or (2) if the Transfer Agent is not participating in the DTC Fast Automated Securities Transfer Program, upon the request of the Holder, issue and deliver (via reputable overnight courier) to the address as specified in the Conversion Notice, a certificate, registered in the name of the Holder or its designee, for the number of shares of Common Stock to which the Holder shall be entitled pursuant to such conversion. If this Note is physically surrendered for conversion pursuant to Section 3(c)(iii) and the outstanding Principal of this Note is greater than the Principal portion of the Conversion Amount being converted, then the Company shall as soon as practicable and in no event later than two Trading Days after receipt of this Note and at its own expense, issue and deliver to the Holder (or its designee) a new Note (in accordance with Section 15(d)) representing the outstanding Principal not converted. The Person or Persons entitled to receive the Conversion Shares shall be treated for all purposes as the record holder or holders of such shares of Common Stock on the Conversion Date.

 

(ii)       Company’s Failure to Timely Convert. If the Company shall fail, for any reason or for no reason, on or prior to the applicable Share Delivery Deadline, if the Transfer Agent is not participating in the DTC Fast Automated Securities Transfer Program, to issue and deliver to the Holder (or its designee) a certificate for the number of shares of Common Stock to which the Holder is entitled and register such shares of Common Stock on the Company’s share register or, if the Transfer Agent is participating in the DTC Fast Automated Securities Transfer Program, to credit the balance account of the Holder or the Holder’s designee with DTC for such number of shares of Common Stock to which the Holder is entitled upon the Holder’s conversion of this Note (as the case may be) (a “Conversion Failure”), then, in addition to all other remedies available to the Holder, (1) the Company shall pay in cash to the Holder on each day after such Share Delivery Deadline that the issuance of such shares of Common Stock is not timely effected an amount equal to 2% of the product of (A) the sum of the number of shares of Common Stock not issued to the Holder on or prior to the Share Delivery Deadline and to which the Holder is entitled, multiplied by (B) any trading price of the Common Stock selected by the Holder in writing as in effect at any time during the period beginning on the applicable Conversion Date and ending on the applicable Share Delivery Deadline and (2) the Holder, upon written notice to the Company, may void its Conversion Notice with respect to, and retain or have returned (as the case may be) any portion of this Note that has not been converted pursuant to such Conversion Notice, provided that the voiding of a Conversion Notice shall not affect the Company’s obligations to make any payments which have accrued prior to the date of such notice pursuant to this Section 3(c)(ii) or otherwise. In addition to the foregoing, if on or prior to the Share Delivery Deadline, if the Transfer Agent is not participating in the DTC Fast Automated Securities Transfer Program, the Company shall fail to issue and deliver to the Holder (or its designee) a certificate and register such shares of Common Stock on the Company’s share register or, if the Transfer Agent is participating in the DTC Fast Automated Securities Transfer Program, the Transfer Agent shall fail to credit the balance account of the Holder or the Holder’s designee with DTC for the number of shares of Common Stock to which the Holder is entitled upon the Holder’s conversion hereunder or pursuant to the Company’s obligation pursuant to clause (II) below, and if on or after such Share Delivery Deadline the Holder purchases (in an open market transaction or otherwise) shares of Common Stock corresponding to all or any portion of the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon such conversion that the Holder is entitled to receive from the Company and has not received from the Company in connection with such Conversion Failure or Notice Failure, as applicable (a “Buy-In”), then, in addition to all other remedies available to the Holder, the Company shall, within two Trading Days after receipt of the Holder’s request and in the Holder’s discretion, either: (I) pay cash to the Holder in an amount equal to the Holder’s total purchase price (including brokerage commissions and other out-of-pocket expenses, if any) for the shares of Common Stock so purchased (including, without limitation, by any other Person in respect, or on behalf, of the Holder) (the “Buy-In Price”), at which point the Company’s obligation to so issue and deliver such certificate (and to issue such shares of Common Stock) or credit the balance account of such Holder or such Holder’s designee, as applicable, with DTC for the number of shares of Common Stock to which the Holder is entitled upon the Holder’s conversion hereunder (as the case may be) (and to issue such shares of Common Stock) shall terminate, or (II) promptly honor its obligation to so issue and deliver to the Holder a certificate or certificates representing such shares of Common Stock or credit the balance account of such Holder or such Holder’s designee, as applicable, with DTC for the number of shares of Common Stock to which the Holder is entitled upon the Holder’s conversion hereunder (as the case may be) and pay cash to the Holder in an amount equal to the excess (if any) of the Buy-In Price over the product of (x) such number of shares of Common Stock multiplied by (y) the lowest Closing Sale Price of the Common Stock on any Trading Day during the period commencing on the date of the applicable Conversion Notice and ending on the date of such issuance and payment under this clause (II) (the “Buy-In Payment Amount”). Nothing shall limit the Holder’s right to pursue any other remedies available to it hereunder, at law or in equity, including, without limitation, a decree of specific performance and/or injunctive relief with respect to the Company’s failure to timely deliver certificates representing shares of Common Stock (or to electronically deliver such shares of Common Stock) upon the conversion of this Note as required pursuant to the terms hereof.

 

 3 
 

 

(iii)       Registration; Book-Entry. The Company shall maintain a register (the “Register”) for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Holder of the Note and the principal amount of the Note (the “Registered Note”). The entries in the Register shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes absent manifest error. The Company and the holder or holders of the Note shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register as the owner of a Note for all purposes (including, without limitation, the right to receive payments of Principal and Interest hereunder) notwithstanding notice to the contrary. The Registered Note may, subject to Section 27 hereof, be assigned, transferred or sold in whole or in part only by registration of such assignment or sale on the Register. Upon its receipt of a written request to assign, transfer or sell all or part of the Registered Note by the holder thereof, the Company shall record the information contained therein in the Register and issue one or more new Registered Notes in the same aggregate principal amount as the principal amount of the surrendered Registered Note to the designated assignee or transferee pursuant to Section 15, provided that if the Company does not so record an assignment, transfer or sale (as the case may be) of all or part of any Registered Note within two Trading Days of such a request, then the Register shall be automatically deemed updated to reflect such assignment, transfer or sale (as the case may be). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Section 3, following conversion of any portion of this Note in accordance with the terms hereof, the Holder shall not be required to physically surrender this Note to the Company unless (A) the full Conversion Amount represented by this Note is being converted (in which event this Note shall be delivered to the Company following conversion thereof) or (B) the Holder has provided the Company with prior written notice (which notice may be included in a Conversion Notice) requesting reissuance of this Note upon physical surrender of this Note. The Holder and the Company shall maintain records showing the Principal, Interest and Late Charges converted and/or paid (as the case may be) and the dates of such conversions, and/or payments (as the case may be) or shall use such other method, reasonably satisfactory to the Holder and the Company, so as not to require physical surrender of this Note upon conversion. If the Company does not update the Register to record such Principal, Interest and Late Charges converted and/or paid (as the case may be) and the dates of such conversions, and/or payments (as the case may be) within two Trading Days of such occurrence, then the Register shall be automatically deemed updated to reflect such occurrence.

 

(d)       Limitations on Conversions. The Company shall not effect the conversion of any portion of the Note and the Holder shall not have the right to convert any portion of the Note and any such conversion shall be null and void and treated as if never made, to the extent that after giving effect to such conversion, the Holder would beneficially own in excess of 4.99% of the shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to such conversion (the “Maximum Percentage”) (which provision may be waived by the Holder by written notice from the Holder to the Company, which notice shall be effective 61 days after the date of such notice). For purposes of the foregoing sentence, the aggregate number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Holder shall include the number of shares of Common Stock held by the Holder plus the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Note and all other Convertible Securities with respect to which the determination of such sentence is being made subject to a limitation on conversion or exercise analogous to the limitation contained in this Section 3(d). For purposes of this Section 3(d), beneficial ownership shall be calculated in accordance with Section 13(d) of the 1934 Act. For purposes of determining the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock the Holder may acquire upon the conversion of the Note without exceeding the Maximum Percentage, the Holder may rely on the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock as reflected in (x) the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, Current Report on Form 8-K or other public filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), as the case may be, (y) a more recent public announcement by the Company or (z) any other written notice by the Company or the Transfer Agent, if any, setting forth the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding (the “Reported Outstanding Share Number”). If the Company receives a Conversion Notice from the Holder at a time when the actual number of outstanding shares of Common Stock is less than the Reported Outstanding Share Number, the Company shall notify the Holder in writing of the number of shares of Common Stock then outstanding and, to the extent that such Conversion Notice would otherwise cause the Holder’s beneficial ownership, as determined pursuant to this Section 3(d), to exceed the Maximum Percentage, the Company must notify the Holder of a reduced number of Conversion Shares to be acquired pursuant to such Conversion Notice. For any reason at any time, upon the written or oral request of the Holder, the Company shall within one Trading Day confirm orally and in writing or by electronic mail to the Holder the number of shares of Common Stock then outstanding. In any case, the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock shall be determined after giving effect to the conversion or exercise of securities of the Company, including such Note, by the Holder since the date as of which the Reported Outstanding Share Number was reported. In the event that the issuance of shares of Common Stock to the Holder upon conversion of such portion of the Note results in the Holder being deemed to beneficially own, in the aggregate, more than the Maximum Percentage of the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock (as determined under Section 13(d) of the 1934 Act and Rule 13b-3 thereunder), the number of conversion shares so issued by which the Holder’s beneficial ownership exceeds the Maximum Percentage (the “Excess Shares”) shall be deemed null and void and shall be cancelled ab initio, and the Holder shall not have the power to vote, sell, or to transfer the Excess Shares. For purposes of clarity, the shares of Common Stock issuable to the Holder pursuant to the terms of this Note in excess of the Maximum Percentage shall not be deemed to be beneficially owned by the Holder for any purpose including for purposes of Section 13(d) or Rule 16a-1(a)(1) of the 1934 Act. No prior inability to convert the Note pursuant to this Section 3(d) shall have any effect on the applicability of the provisions of this Section 3(d) with respect to any subsequent determination of convertibility. The provisions of this Section 3(d) shall be construed and implemented in a manner otherwise than in strict conformity with the terms of this Section 3(d) to the extent necessary to correct any portion of this Section 3(d) which may be defective or inconsistent with the intended beneficial ownership limitation contained in this Section 3(d) or to make changes or supplements necessary or desirable to properly give effect to such limitation. The provisions of this Section 3(d) shall be of no further force or effect if the Holder participates in a subsequent transaction with the Company and acquires Common Stock and/or securities convertible into Common Stock which do not contain a beneficial ownership limitation. In such event, the Maximum Percentage limitation shall be (i) deemed modified to be identical to any limitation on beneficial ownership contained in the subsequent transaction or (ii) eliminated if there is no such limitation on beneficial ownership.

4.       RIGHTS UPON EVENT OF DEFAULT.

 

(a)       Event of Default. Each of the following events shall constitute an “Event of Default”:

 

(i)       the suspension from trading or the failure of the Common Stock to be trading or listed (as applicable) on a Principal Market for a period of five consecutive Trading Days. For the avoidance of doubt, the delisting of the Common Stock from the NYSE American shall be an event of Default;

(vi)       other than as specifically set forth in another clause of this Section 4(a), the Company breaches any representation or warranty in any material respect (other than representations or warranties subject to materiality limitations, which may not be breached in any respect) or any covenant or other term or condition of this Note or any other Transaction Document, except, in the case of a breach of a covenant or other term or condition that is curable, only if such breach remains uncured for a period of ten (10) consecutive Trading Days;

(ix)       any provision of any Transaction Document shall at any time for any reason (other than pursuant to the express terms thereof) cease to be valid and binding on or enforceable against the parties thereto, or the validity or enforceability thereof shall be contested by any party thereto, or a proceeding shall be commenced by the Company or any Subsidiary or any governmental authority having jurisdiction over any of them, seeking to establish the invalidity or unenforceability thereof, or the Company or any Subsidiary shall deny in writing that it has any liability or obligation purported to be created under any Transaction Document, subject to a cure period of ten (10) Trading Days;

 

(x)       the Company fails to file any reports required under the 1934 Act, subject to a cure period of ten (10) Trading Days.

 

(b)       Notice of an Event of Default; Holder Right to Compel Prepayment upon Event of Default. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default with respect to this Note, the Company shall within one Trading Day deliver written notice thereof via facsimile or electronic mail and overnight courier (with next day delivery specified) (an “Event of Default Notice”) to the Holder. At any time after the earlier of the Holder’s receipt of an Event of Default Notice and the Holder becoming aware of an Event of Default and ending (such ending date, the “Event of Default Right Expiration Date”) on the 20th Trading Day after the later of (x) the date such Event of Default is cured and (y) the Holder’s receipt of an Event of Default Notice that includes (I) a reasonable description of the applicable Event of Default, (II) a certification as to whether, in the opinion of the Company, such Event of Default is capable of being cured and, if applicable, a reasonable description of any existing plans of the Company to cure such Event of Default and (III) a certification as to the date the Event of Default occurred and, if cured on or prior to the date of such Event of Default Notice, the applicable Event of Default Right Expiration Date, the Holder may require the Company to prepay (regardless of whether such Event of Default has been cured on or prior to the Event of Default Right Expiration Date) all or any portion of this Note by delivering written notice thereof (the “Event of Default Prepayment Notice”) to the Company, which Event of Default Prepayment Notice shall indicate the portion of this Note the Holder is electing to have prepaid. Each portion of this Note (which may include all outstanding Principal, accrued and unpaid Interest and accrued and unpaid Late Charges on such Principal and Interest) subject to prepayment by the Company pursuant to this Section 4(b) shall be prepaid by the Company at a price equal to the product of: (i) the portion of this Note being prepaid; multiplied by (ii) the Prepayment Premium. To the extent prepayments required by this Section 4(b) are deemed or determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be prepayments of this Note by the Company, such prepayments shall be deemed to be voluntary prepayments. In the event of the Company’s prepayment of any portion of this Note under this Section 4(b), the Holder’s damages would be uncertain and difficult to estimate because of the parties’ inability to predict future interest rates and the uncertainty of the availability of a suitable substitute investment opportunity for the Holder. Accordingly, any Prepayment Premium due under this Section 4(b) is intended by the parties to be, and shall be deemed, a reasonable estimate of the Holder’s actual loss of its investment opportunity and not as a penalty. Any prepayment upon an Event of Default shall not constitute an election of remedies by the Holder, and all other rights and remedies of the Holder shall be preserved.

5.       RIGHTS UPON CHANGE OF CONTROL. The Company shall not enter into or consummate a transaction constituting a Change of Control unless: (i) no sooner than 20 Trading Days nor later than 10 Trading Days prior to the consummation of a Change of Control, but not prior to the public announcement of such Change of Control, the Company shall deliver written notice thereof via facsimile or electronic mail and overnight courier to the Holder; (ii) the Successor Entity assumes in writing all of the obligations of the Company under this Note and the other Transaction Documents in accordance with the provisions of this Section 5 pursuant to written agreements in form and substance satisfactory to the Holder and approved by the Holder prior to such Change of Control, including agreements to deliver to each holder of the Note in exchange for such Note a security of the Successor Entity evidenced by a written instrument substantially similar in form and substance to the Note, including, without limitation, having a principal amount and interest rate equal to the principal amounts then outstanding and the interest rates of the Note held by such holder, having similar conversion rights as the Note and having similar ranking and security to the Note, and satisfactory to the Holder and (iii) the Successor Entity (including its Parent Entity) is a publicly traded corporation whose common stock is quoted on or listed for trading on a Principal Market. Upon the occurrence of any Change of Control, the Successor Entity shall succeed to, and be substituted for (so that from and after the effective date of such Change of Control, the provisions of this Note and the other Transaction Documents referring to the “Company” shall refer instead to the Successor Entity), and may exercise every right and power of the Company and shall assume all of the obligations of the Company under this Note and the other Transaction Documents with the same effect as if such Successor Entity had been named as the Company herein. Upon consummation of a Change of Control, the Successor Entity shall deliver to the Holder confirmation that there shall be issued upon conversion or prepayment of this Note at any time after the consummation of such Change of Control, in lieu of the shares of Common Stock (or other securities, cash, assets or other property (except such items still issuable under Sections 6 and 15, which shall continue to be receivable thereafter) issuable upon the conversion or prepayment of the Note prior to such Change of Control, such shares of the publicly-traded common stock (or their equivalent) of the Successor Entity (including its Parent Entity) which the Holder would have been entitled to receive upon the happening of such Change of Control had this Note been converted immediately prior to such Change of Control (without regard to any limitations on the conversion of this Note), as adjusted in accordance with the provisions of this Note. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Holder may elect, at its sole option, by delivery of written notice to the Company to waive this Section 5 to permit the Change of Control to occur without the assumption of this Note. The provisions of this Section 5 shall apply similarly and equally to successive transactions constituting a Change of Control and shall be applied without regard to any limitations on the conversion of this Note.

 

6.            RIGHTS UPON ISSUANCE OF PURCHASE RIGHTS AND OTHER CORPORATE EVENTS.

 

(a)       Purchase Rights. In addition to any adjustments pursuant to Section 7 below, if at any time the Company grants, issues or sells any Options, Convertible Securities or rights to purchase stock, warrants, securities or other property pro rata to all or substantially all of the record holders of any class of Common Stock (the “Purchase Rights”), then the Holder will be entitled to acquire, upon the terms applicable to such Purchase Rights, the aggregate Purchase Rights which the Holder could have acquired if the Holder had held the number of shares of Common Stock acquirable upon complete conversion of this Note immediately prior to the date on which a record is taken for the grant, issuance or sale of such Purchase Rights, or, if no such record is taken, the date as of which the record holders of shares of Common Stock are to be determined for the grant, issue or sale of such Purchase Rights (provided, however, that to the extent that the Holder’s right to participate in any such Purchase Right would result in the Holder and the other Attribution Parties exceeding the Maximum Percentage, then the Holder shall not be entitled to participate in such Purchase Right to the extent of the Maximum Percentage (and shall not be entitled to beneficial ownership of such shares of Common Stock as a result of such Purchase Right (and beneficial ownership) to the extent of any such excess) and such Purchase Right to such extent shall be held in abeyance (and, if such Purchase Right has an expiration date, maturity date or other similar provision, such term shall be extended by such number of days held in abeyance, if applicable) for the benefit of the Holder until such time or times, if ever, as its right thereto would not result in the Holder and the other Attribution Parties exceeding the Maximum Percentage, at which time or times the Holder shall be granted such right (and any Purchase Right granted, issued or sold on such initial Purchase Right or on any subsequent Purchase Right held similarly in abeyance (and, if such Purchase Right has an expiration date, maturity date or other similar provision, such term shall be extended by such number of days held in abeyance, if applicable)) to the same extent as if there had been no such limitation).

 

 7 
 

 

(b)       Other Corporate Events. In addition to and not in substitution for any other rights hereunder, prior to the consummation of any Fundamental Transaction pursuant to which holders of shares of Common Stock are entitled to receive securities or other assets with respect to or in exchange for shares of Common Stock (a “Corporate Event”), the Company shall make appropriate provision to ensure that the Holder will thereafter have the right to receive upon a conversion of this Note, at the Holder’s option (i) in addition to the shares of Common Stock receivable upon such conversion, such securities or other assets to which the Holder would have been entitled with respect to such shares of Common Stock had such shares of Common Stock been held by the Holder upon the consummation of such Corporate Event (without taking into account any limitations or restrictions on the convertibility of this Note) or (ii) in lieu of the shares of Common Stock otherwise receivable upon such conversion, such securities or other assets received by the holders of shares of Common Stock in connection with the consummation of such Corporate Event in such amounts as the Holder would have been entitled to receive had this Note initially been issued with conversion rights for the form of such consideration (as opposed to shares of Common Stock) at a conversion rate for such consideration commensurate with the Conversion Rate. Provision made pursuant to the preceding sentence shall be in a form and substance satisfactory to the Holder. The provisions of this Section 6 shall apply similarly and equally to successive Corporate Events and shall be applied without regard to any limitations on the conversion or prepayment of this Note.

 

7.       RIGHTS UPON ISSUANCE OF OTHER SECURITIES.

 

(a)       Adjustment of Conversion Price upon Subdivision or Combination of Common Stock. If the Company at any time on or after the Issuance Date subdivides (by any stock split, stock dividend, recapitalization or other similar transaction) one or more classes of its outstanding shares of Common Stock into a greater number of shares, the Conversion Price in effect immediately prior to such subdivision will be proportionately reduced. If the Company at any time on or after the Issuance Date combines (by any reverse stock split, or stock combination, recapitalization or other similar transaction) one or more classes of its outstanding shares of Common Stock into a smaller number of shares, the Conversion Price in effect immediately prior to such combination will be proportionately increased. Any adjustment pursuant to this Section 7(a) shall become effective immediately after the effective date of such subdivision or combination. If any event requiring an adjustment under this Section 7(a) occurs during the period that a Conversion Price is calculated hereunder, then the calculation of such Conversion Price shall be adjusted appropriately to reflect such event.

 

(b)       Calculations. All calculations under this Section 7 shall be made by rounding to the nearest cent or the nearest 1/100th of a share, as applicable. The number of shares of Common Stock outstanding at any given time shall not include shares owned or held by or for the account of the Company, and the disposition of any such shares shall be considered an issue or sale of Common Stock.

 

(c)       Voluntary Adjustment by Company. The Company may at any time during the term of this Note, with the prior written consent of the Holder, reduce the then current Conversion Price of the Note to any amount and for any period of time deemed appropriate by the board of directors of the Company.

 

8.       NONCIRCUMVENTION. The Company hereby covenants and agrees that the Company will not, by amendment of the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation or other charter documents, bylaws or through any reorganization, transfer of assets, consolidation, merger, scheme of arrangement, 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 Note, and will at all times in good faith carry out all of the provisions of this Note and take all action as may be required to protect the rights of the Holder of this Note. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing or any other provision of this Note or the other Transaction Documents, the Company (a) shall not increase the par value of any shares of Common Stock receivable upon conversion of this Note above the Conversion Price then in effect, and (b) shall take all such actions as may be necessary or appropriate in order that the Company may validly and legally issue fully paid and non-assessable shares of Common Stock upon the conversion of this Note. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if after the 60 day anniversary of the Initial Conversion Date, the Holder is not permitted to convert this Note in full for any reason (other than pursuant to restrictions set forth in Section 3(d) hereof), the Company shall use its best efforts to promptly remedy such failure, including, without limitation, obtaining such consents or approvals as necessary to permit such conversion into shares of Common Stock.

 

9.            RESERVATION OF AUTHORIZED SHARES.

 

(a)       Reservation. So long as the Note remains outstanding, the Company shall at all times reserve 7 million shares of its Common Stock, subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends, combinations and similar events (the “Required Reserve Amount”).

 

 8 
 

 

(b)       Insufficient Authorized Shares. If, notwithstanding Section 9(a), and not in limitation thereof, at any time while any of the Note remains outstanding the Company does not have a sufficient number of authorized and unreserved shares of Common Stock to satisfy its obligation to reserve for issuance upon conversion of the Note at least a number of shares of Common Stock equal to the Required Reserve Amount (an “Authorized Share Failure”), then the Company shall immediately take all action necessary to increase the Company’s authorized shares of Common Stock to an amount sufficient to allow the Company to reserve the Required Reserve Amount for the portion of the Note then outstanding. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing sentence, as soon as practicable after the date of the occurrence of an Authorized Share Failure, but in no event later than 60 days after the occurrence of such Authorized Share Failure, the Company shall hold a meeting of its stockholders for the approval of an increase in the number of authorized shares of Common Stock. In connection with such meeting, the Company shall provide each stockholder with a proxy statement and shall use its best efforts to solicit its stockholders’ approval of such increase in authorized shares of Common Stock and to cause its board of directors to recommend to the stockholders that they approve such proposal. In the event that the Company is prohibited from issuing shares of Common Stock pursuant to the terms of this Note due to the failure by the Company to have sufficient shares of Common Stock available out of the authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock (such unavailable number of shares of Common Stock, the “Authorized Failure Shares”), in lieu of delivering such Authorized Failure Shares to the Holder, the Company shall pay cash in exchange for the prepayment of such portion of the Conversion Amount convertible into such Authorized Failure Shares at a price equal to the sum of (i) the product of (x) such number of Authorized Failure Shares and (y) the greatest Closing Sale Price of the Common Stock on any Trading Day during the period commencing on the date the Holder delivers the applicable Conversion Notice with respect to such Authorized Failure Shares to the Company and ending on the date of such issuance and payment under this Section 9(b); and (ii) to the extent the Holder purchases (in an open market transaction or otherwise) shares of Common Stock to deliver in satisfaction of a sale by the Holder of Authorized Failure Shares, any brokerage commissions and other out-of-pocket expenses, if any, of the Holder incurred in connection therewith.

 

10.               OPTIONAL PREPAYMENT. At any time during the period beginning on the Issuance Date and expiring upon the Maturity Date, the Company shall have the right, exercisable on not less than twenty (20)Trading Days prior written notice to the Holder of the Note, to prepay the outstanding Note (principal, accrued interest, Late Charges and any other amount due under the Note), in full, in accordance with this Section 10. Any notice of prepayment hereunder (an “Optional Prepayment Notice”) shall be delivered to the Holder of the Note at its registered addresses and shall state: (1) that the Company is exercising its right to prepay the Note, and (2) the date of prepayment which shall be no later than ten (10) days from the date of the Optional Prepayment Notice. On the date fixed for prepayment (the “Optional Prepayment Date”), the Company shall make payment of the Optional Prepayment Amount (as defined below) to or upon the order of the Holder as specified by the Holder in writing to the Company. If the Company exercises its right to prepay the Note, the Company shall make payment to the Holder of an amount in cash (the “Optional Prepayment Amount”) equal to the Multiple (as hereinafter defined), multiplied by the sum of: (w) the then outstanding Principal of this Note plus (x) accrued and unpaid interest on the unpaid Principal of this Note to the Optional Prepayment Date plus (y) if applicable, Default Interest and other amounts due, if any, on the amounts referred to in clauses (w) and (x). For purposes hereof, the “Multiple” shall be: (i) 105% if the Optional Prepayment Notice is delivered within three (3) months of the Issuance Date, and (ii) 110% if the Optional Prepayment Notice is delivered at any time thereafter.

 

11.               COVENANTS. Until all of the principal amount of and accrued but unpaid interest under Note has been repaid, prepaid or otherwise satisfied in accordance with their terms:

 

(a)       Preservation of Existence, Etc. The Company shall maintain and preserve, and cause each of its Subsidiaries to maintain and preserve, its existence, rights and privileges, and become or remain, and cause each of its Subsidiaries to become or remain, duly qualified and in good standing in each jurisdiction in which the character of the properties owned or leased by it or in which the transaction of its business makes such qualification necessary.

The Company shall maintain and preserve, and cause each of its Subsidiaries to maintain and preserve, all of its properties which are necessary or useful in the proper conduct of its business in good working order and condition, ordinary wear and tear excepted, and comply, and cause each of its Subsidiaries to comply, at all times with the provisions of all leases to which it is a party as lessee or under which it occupies property, so as to prevent any loss or forfeiture thereof or thereunder.

 

 9 
 

 

(c)       Maintenance of Intellectual Property. The Company will, and will cause each of its Subsidiaries to, take all action necessary or advisable to maintain all of the rights or licenses to use all trademarks, trade names, service marks, service mark registrations, service names, original works of authorship, patents, patent rights, copyrights, inventions, licenses, approvals, governmental authorizations, trade secrets and other intellectual property rights and all applications and registrations therefor of the Company and/or any of its Subsidiaries that are necessary or material to the conduct of its business in full force and effect.

 

(d)       Maintenance of Insurance. The Company shall maintain, and cause each of its Subsidiaries to maintain, insurance with responsible and reputable insurance companies or associations (including, without limitation, comprehensive general liability, hazard, rent and business interruption insurance) with respect to its properties (including all real properties leased or owned by it) and business, in such amounts and covering such risks as is required by any governmental authority having jurisdiction with respect thereto or as is carried generally in accordance with sound business practice by companies in similar businesses similarly situated.

 

12.         DISTRIBUTION OF ASSETS. In addition to any adjustments pursuant to Section 7, if the Company shall declare or make any dividend or other distributions of its assets (or rights to acquire its assets) to any or all holders of shares of Common Stock, by way of return of capital or otherwise (including without limitation, any distribution of cash, stock or other securities, property or Options by way of a dividend, spin off, reclassification, corporate rearrangement, scheme of arrangement or other similar transaction) (the “Distributions”), then the Holder will be entitled to such Distributions as if the Holder had held the number of shares of Common Stock acquirable upon complete conversion of this Note (without taking into account any limitations or restrictions on the convertibility of this Note and assuming for such purpose that the Note was converted at) the Conversion Price on the date immediately prior to the date on which a record is taken for such Distribution or, if no such record is taken, the date as of which the record holders of Common Stock are to be determined for such Distributions (provided, however, that to the extent that the Holder’s right to participate in any such Distribution would result in the Holder and the other Attribution Parties exceeding the Maximum Percentage, then the Holder shall not be entitled to participate in such Distribution to the extent of the Maximum Percentage (and shall not be entitled to beneficial ownership of such shares of Common Stock as a result of such Distribution (and beneficial ownership) to the extent of any such excess) and the portion of such Distribution shall be held in abeyance for the benefit of the Holder until such time or times, if ever, as its right thereto would not result in the Holder and the other Attribution Parties exceeding the Maximum Percentage, at which time or times the Holder shall be granted such Distribution (and any Distributions declared or made on such initial Distribution or on any subsequent Distribution held similarly in abeyance) to the same extent as if there had been no such limitation).

 

13.         AMENDING THE TERMS OF THIS NOTE. The prior written consent of the Holder shall be required for any change, waiver or amendment to this Note. Any change, waiver or amendment so approved shall be binding upon all existing and future holders of this Note; provided, however, that no such change, waiver or, as applied to the Note held by any particular holder of the Note, shall, without the written consent of that particular holder, (i) reduce the amount of Principal, reduce the amount of accrued and unpaid Interest, or extend the Maturity Date, of the Note, (ii) disproportionally and adversely affect any rights under the Note of any holder of any other portion of the Note; or (iii) modify any of the provisions of, or impair the right of any holder of the Note under this Section 13.

 

14.          RESERVED.

 

15.          REISSUANCE OF THIS NOTE.

 

(a)       Transfer. If this Note is to be transferred, the Holder shall surrender this Note to the Company, whereupon the Company will forthwith issue and deliver upon the order of the Holder a new Note (in accordance with Section 15(d)), registered as the Holder may request, representing the outstanding Principal being transferred by the Holder and, if less than the entire outstanding Principal is being transferred, a new Note (in accordance with Section15(d)) to the Holder representing the outstanding Principal not being transferred. The Holder and any assignee, by acceptance of this Note, acknowledge and agree that, by reason of the provisions of Section 3(c)(iii) following conversion or prepayment of any portion of this Note, the outstanding Principal represented by this Note may be less than the Principal stated on the face of this Note.

 

 10 
 

 

(b)       Lost, Stolen or Mutilated Note. Upon receipt by the Company of evidence reasonably satisfactory to the Company of the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of this Note (as to which a written certification and the indemnification contemplated below shall suffice as such evidence), and, in the case of loss, theft or destruction, of any indemnification undertaking by the Holder to the Company in customary and reasonable form and, in the case of mutilation, upon surrender and cancellation of this Note, the Company shall execute and deliver to the Holder a new Note (in accordance with Section 15(d)) representing the outstanding Principal.

 

(c)       Note Exchangeable for Different Denominations. This Note is exchangeable, upon the surrender hereof by the Holder at the principal office of the Company, for a new Note or Notes (in accordance with Section 15(d) and in principal amounts of at least $1,000) representing in the aggregate the outstanding Principal of this Note, and each such new Note will represent such portion of such outstanding Principal as is designated by the Holder at the time of such surrender.

 

(d)       Issuance of New Notes. Whenever the Company is required to issue a new Note pursuant to the terms of this Note, such new Note (i) shall be of like tenor with this Note, (ii) shall represent, as indicated on the face of such new Note, the Principal remaining outstanding (or in the case of a new Note being issued pursuant to Section 15(a) or Section 15(c), the Principal designated by the Holder which does not exceed the Principal remaining outstanding under this Note immediately prior to such issuance of a new Note), (iii) shall have an issuance date, as indicated on the face of such new Note, which is the same as the Issuance Date of this Note, (iv) shall have the same rights and conditions as this Note, and (v) shall represent accrued and unpaid Interest and Late Charges on the Principal and Interest of this Note, from the Issuance Date.

 

16.          REMEDIES, CHARACTERIZATIONS, OTHER OBLIGATIONS, BREACHES AND INJUNCTIVE RELIEF. The remedies provided in this Note shall be cumulative and in addition to all other remedies available under this Note and any of the other Transaction Documents at law or in equity (including a decree of specific performance and/or other injunctive relief), and nothing herein shall limit the Holder’s right to pursue actual and consequential damages for any failure by the Company to comply with the terms of this Note. The Company covenants to the Holder that there shall be no characterization concerning this instrument other than as expressly provided herein. Amounts set forth or provided for herein with respect to payments, conversion and the like (and the computation thereof) shall be the amounts to be received by the Holder and shall not, except as expressly provided herein, be subject to any other obligation of the Company (or the performance thereof). The Company acknowledges that a breach by it of its obligations hereunder will cause irreparable harm to the Holder and that the remedy at law for any such breach may be inadequate. The Company therefore agrees that, in the event of any such breach or threatened breach, the Holder shall be entitled, in addition to all other available remedies, to specific performance and/or temporary, preliminary and permanent injunctive or other equitable relief from any court of competent jurisdiction in any such case without the necessity of proving actual damages and without posting a bond or other security. The Company shall provide all information and documentation to the Holder that is requested by the Holder to enable the Holder to confirm the Company’s compliance with the terms and conditions of this Note (including, without limitation, compliance with Section 7).

 

17.          PAYMENT OF COLLECTION, ENFORCEMENT AND OTHER COSTS. If (a) this Note is placed in the hands of an attorney for collection or enforcement or is collected or enforced through any legal proceeding or the Holder otherwise takes action to collect amounts due under this Note or to enforce the provisions of this Note or (b) there occurs any bankruptcy, reorganization, receivership of the Company or other proceedings affecting Company creditors’ rights and involving a claim under this Note, then the Company shall pay the costs incurred by the Holder for such collection, enforcement or action or in connection with such bankruptcy, reorganization, receivership or other proceeding, including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees and disbursements. The Company expressly acknowledges and agrees that no amounts due under this Note shall be affected, or limited, by the fact that the purchase price paid for this Note was less than the original Principal amount hereof.

 

18.          CONSTRUCTION; HEADINGS. This Note shall be deemed to be jointly drafted by the Company and the initial Holder and shall not be construed against any such Person as the drafter hereof. The headings of this Note are for convenience of reference and shall not form part of, or affect the interpretation of, this Note. Unless the context clearly indicates otherwise, each pronoun herein shall be deemed to include the masculine, feminine, neuter, singular and plural forms thereof. The terms “including,” “includes,” “include” and words of like import shall be construed broadly as if followed by the words “without limitation.” The terms “herein,” “hereunder,” “hereof” and words of like import refer to this entire Note instead of just the provision in which they are found. Unless expressly indicated otherwise, all section references are to sections of this Note. Terms used in this Note and not otherwise defined herein, but defined in the other Transaction Documents, shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms on the Closing Date in such other Transaction Documents unless otherwise consented to in writing by the Holder.

 

 11 
 

 

19.          FAILURE OR INDULGENCE NOT WAIVER. No failure or delay on the part of the Holder in the exercise of any power, right or privilege hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such power, right or privilege preclude other or further exercise thereof or of any other right, power or privilege. No waiver shall be effective unless it is in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the waiving party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing contained in this Section 19 shall permit any waiver of any provision of Section 3(d).

 

20.          DISPUTE RESOLUTION.

 

(a)       Submission to Dispute Resolution.

 

(i)       In the case of a dispute relating to a Closing Bid Price, a Closing Sale Price, a Conversion Price, or a fair market value or the arithmetic calculation of a Conversion Rate, or the applicable Prepayment Price (as the case may be) (including, without limitation, a dispute relating to the determination of any of the foregoing), the Company or the Holder (as the case may be) shall submit the dispute to the other party via facsimile or electronic mail (A) if by the Company, within two Trading Days after the occurrence of the circumstances giving rise to such dispute or (B) if by the Holder at any time after the Holder learned of the circumstances giving rise to such dispute.

The Holder also shall have the right, at its election exercised in its sole discretion, when exercising the Warrant, in whole or in part, in lieu of making the cash payment otherwise contemplated to be made to the Company upon such exercise in payment of the Exercise Price, elect instead to receive upon such exercise the “Net Number” of shares of Common Stock determined according to the following formula (a “Cashless Exercise”):

 

Net Number = (A x B) - (A x C)

B

 

For purposes of the foregoing formula:

 

A = the total number of Warrant Shares that Holder is then purchasing.

 

B = the Closing Price of the Common Stock on the trading day immediately preceding the date of the Exercise Notice.

 

C = the Warrant Exercise Price then in effect for the applicable Warrant Shares at the time of such exercise.

 

   
 

 

Anything to the contrary notwithstanding, in no event shall the Holder be entitled to exercise any portion of this Warrant in excess of that portion of this Warrant upon exercise of which the sum of (1) the number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Holder and the Holder’s affiliates (other than shares of Common Stock which may be deemed beneficially owned through the ownership of the unexercised portion of the Warrant or the unexercised or unconverted portion of any other of the Company’s securities subject to a limitation on conversion or exercise analogous to the limitations contained herein) and (2) the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of the portion of this Warrant with respect to which the determination of this proviso is being made, would result in beneficial ownership by the Holder and its affiliates of more than 9.99% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock (“Ownership Limitation”). Beneficial ownership shall be determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”), and Regulations 13D - G thereunder, provided, further, however, that the limitations on exercised may be waived by the Holder upon, at the election of the Holder, not less than 61 days’ prior notice to the Company, and the provisions of the exercise limitation shall continue to apply until such 61st day (or such later date, as determined by the Holder, as may be specified in such notice of waiver).

 

3.2        When Exercise Effective. Each exercise of this Warrant shall be deemed to have been effected 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 3.1 hereof, and, at such time, the corporation, association, partnership, organization, business, individual, government or political subdivision thereof or a governmental agency (a “Person” or the “Persons”) in whose name or names any certificate or certificates for shares of Common Stock shall be issuable upon exercise as provided in Section 3.3 hereof shall be deemed to have become the holder or holders of record thereof.

 

3.3        Delivery of Certificates upon Exercise. Certificates for Warrant Shares purchased hereunder shall be transmitted by the Company’s transfer agent (the “Transfer Agent”) to the Holder by crediting the account of the Holder’s prime broker with the Depository Trust Company through its Deposit Withdrawal Agent Commission (“DWAC”) system if the Company is then a participant in such system and either (A) there is an effective Registration Statement permitting the issuance of the Warrant Shares to or resale of the Warrant Shares by the Holder or (B) this Warrant is being exercised via cashless exercise, and otherwise by physical delivery to the address specified by the Holder in the Exercise Notice by the date that is two Business Days after the latest of (A) the delivery to the Company of the Exercise Notice, (B) surrender of this Warrant and (C) payment of the aggregate Exercise Price as set forth above (including by cashless exercise) (such date, the “Warrant Share Delivery Date”). If the Company fails for any reason to deliver to the Holder certificates evidencing the Warrant Shares subject to an Exercise Notice by the Warrant Share Delivery Date, the Company shall pay to the Holder, in cash, as liquidated damages and not as a penalty, for each $1,000 of Warrant Shares subject to such exercise (based on the closing price of the Common Stock on the date of the applicable Exercise Notice), $10 per Business Day (increasing to $20 per Business Day on the fifth Business Day after such liquidated damages begin to accrue) for each Business Day after such Warrant Share Delivery Date until such certificates are delivered or the Holder rescinds such exercise.

 

3.4       Rescission Rights. If the Company fails to cause the Transfer Agent to transmit the Warrant Shares to the Holder under Section 3.3 by the Warrant Share Delivery Date, then the Holder will have the right to rescind such exercise.

 

3.5       Compensation for Buy-In on Failure to Timely Deliver Certificates upon Exercise. In addition to any other rights available to the Holder, if the Company fails to cause the Transfer Agent to transmit the Warrant Shares to the Holder under Section 3.3 by the Warrant Share Delivery Date, and if after such date the Holder is required by its broker to purchase (in an open market transaction or otherwise) or the Holder’s brokerage firm otherwise purchases, shares of Common Stock to deliver in satisfaction of a sale by the Holder of the Warrant Shares that the Holder anticipated receiving upon such exercise (a “Buy-In”), then the Company shall (A) pay in cash to the Holder the amount, if any, by which (x) the Holder’s total purchase price (including brokerage commissions, if any) for the shares of Common Stock so purchased exceeds (y) the amount obtained by multiplying (1) the number of Warrant Shares that the Company was required to deliver to the Holder in connection with the exercise at issue times (2) the price at which the sell order giving rise to such purchase obligation was executed, and (B) at the option of the Holder, either reinstate the portion of the Warrant and equivalent number of Warrant Shares for which such exercise was not honored (in which case such exercise shall be deemed rescinded) or deliver to the Holder the number of shares of Common Stock that would have been issued had the Company timely complied with its exercise and delivery obligations hereunder. For example, if the Holder purchases Common Stock having a total purchase price of $11,000 to cover a Buy-In with respect to an attempted exercise of shares of Common Stock with an aggregate sale price giving rise to such purchase obligation of $10,000, under clause (A) of the immediately preceding sentence, the Company shall be required to pay the Holder $1,000. The Holder shall provide the Company written notice indicating the amounts payable to the Holder in respect of the Buy-In and, upon request of the Company, reasonable evidence of the amount of such loss. Nothing herein shall limit a Holder’s right to pursue any other remedies available to it hereunder, at law or in equity including, without limitation, a decree of specific performance and/or injunctive relief with respect to the Company’s failure to timely deliver certificates representing shares of Common Stock upon exercise of the Warrant as required under the terms hereof.

 

   
 

 

3.6       Partial Exercise. In case exercise is in part only, a new Warrant of like tenor, dated the date hereof and calling in the aggregate on the face thereof for the number of Warrant Shares equal to the number of Warrant Shares called for on the face of this Warrant minus the number of Warrant Shares designated by the Holder upon exercise as provided in Section 3.1 (without giving effect to any adjustment thereof).

 

3.7       Company to Reaffirm Obligations. The Company will, at the time of each exercise of this Warrant and upon the written request of the Holder, acknowledge in writing its continuing obligation to afford to the Holder all rights (including without limitation any rights to registration of the Warrant Shares issued upon exercise) to which the Holder shall continue to be entitled after exercise under the terms of this Warrant; provided, however, that if the Holder shall fail to make a request, the failure shall not affect the continuing obligation of the Company to afford the rights to such Holder.

 

4.       Warrant Adjustments.

 

The Warrant Price and the number of Warrant Shares purchasable upon exercise of this Warrant shall be subject to adjustment with respect to events after the date hereof as follows:

 

4.1       Adjustment for Change in Capital Stock. If the Company shall (i) declare a dividend on its outstanding Common Stock in shares of its capital stock, (ii) subdivide its outstanding Common Stock, or (iii) issue any shares of its capital stock by reclassification of its Common Stock (including any such reclassification in connection with a consolidation or merger in which the Company is the continuing corporation), then in each such case the Warrant Price in effect immediately prior to such action shall be adjusted so that if this Warrant is thereafter exercised, the Holder may receive the number and kind of shares which it would have owned immediately following such action if it had exercised this Warrant immediately prior to such action. Such adjustment shall be made successively whenever such an event shall occur. The adjustment shall become effective immediately after the record date in the case of a dividend or distribution and immediately after the effective date in the case of a subdivision or reclassification. If after an adjustment the Holder upon exercise of this Warrant may receive shares of two or more classes of capital stock of the Company, the Company's Board of Directors, in good faith, shall determine the allocation of the adjusted Warrant Price between the classes of capital stock. After such allocation, the Warrant Price of each class of capital stock shall thereafter be subject to adjustment on terms comparable to those applicable to Common Stock in this Section 4.

 

4.2       Number of Shares. Upon each adjustment of the Warrant Price as a result of the calculations made in Section 4.1, this Warrant shall thereafter evidence the right to purchase, at the adjusted Warrant Price, that number of shares (calculated to the nearest one-hundredth) obtained by dividing (i) the product obtained by multiplying the number of shares issuable upon exercise of this Warrant prior to adjustment of the number of shares by Warrant Price in effect prior to adjustment of the Warrant Price by (ii) the Warrant Price in effect after such adjustment of the Warrant Price.

 

4.3       Transactions Not Requiring Adjustments. No adjustment need be made for a transaction referred to in Section 4.1 if the Holder is permitted to participate in the transaction on a basis no less favorable than any other party and at a level which would preserve the Holder’s percentage equity participation in the Common Stock upon exercise of this Warrant. No adjustment need be made for sales of Common Stock under a Company plan for reinvestment of dividends or interest, the granting of options and/or the exercise of options outstanding under any of the Company's currently existing stock option plans, the exercise of currently existing incentive stock options or incentive stock options which may be granted in the future, the exercise of any other of the Company's currently outstanding options, or any currently authorized warrants, whether or not outstanding. If this Warrant becomes exercisable solely into cash, no adjustment need be made thereafter. Interest will not accrue on the cash.

 

   
 

 

4.4       Notice of Adjustments. Whenever the Warrant Price is adjusted, the Company shall promptly mail to the Holder a notice of the adjustment together with a certificate from the Company's Chief Financial Officer briefly stating (i) the facts requiring the adjustment, (ii) the adjusted Warrant Price and the manner of computing it, and (iii) the date on which such adjustment becomes effective. The certificate shall be prima facie evidence that the adjustment is correct, absent manifest error.

 

4.5       Reorganization of Company. If the Company is a party to a merger, consolidation or a transaction in which (i) the Company transfers or leases substantially all of its assets; (ii) the Company reclassifies or changes its outstanding Common Stock; or (iii) the Common Stock is exchanged for securities, cash or other assets, the Person who is the transferee or lessee of such assets or is obligated to deliver such securities, cash or other assets shall assume the terms of this Warrant. If the issuer of securities deliverable upon exercise of this Warrant is an affiliate of the surviving, transferee or lessee corporation, that issuer shall join in such assumption. The assumption agreement shall provide that the Holder may exercise this Warrant into the kind and amount of securities, cash or other assets which it would have owned immediately after the consolidation, merger, transfer, lease or exchange if it had exercised this Warrant immediately before the effective date of the transaction. The assumption agreement shall provide for adjustments that shall be as nearly equivalent as may be practical to the adjustments provided for in this Section 4. The successor company shall mail to the Holder a notice briefly describing the assumption agreement. If this Paragraph applies, Section 4(a) above does not apply.

 

4.6       Dissolution, Liquidation. In the event of the dissolution or total liquidation of the Company, then after the effective date thereof, this Warrant and all rights thereunder shall expire.

 

4.7       Notices. If (i) the Company takes any action that would require an adjustment in the Warrant Price under this Section 4; or (ii) there is a liquidation or dissolution of the Company, the Company shall mail to the Holder a notice stating the proposed record date for a distribution or effective date of a reclassification, consolidation, merger, transfer, lease, liquidation or dissolution. The Company shall mail the notice at least 15 days before such date. Failure to mail the notice or any defect in it shall not affect the validity of the transaction.

 

5.        Fractional Shares. If the number of Warrant Shares purchasable upon the exercise of this Warrant is adjusted under Section 4, the Company shall nevertheless not be required to issue fractions of shares upon exercise of this Warrant or otherwise, or to distribute certificates that evidence fractional shares. Instead the Company will issue cash in the amount equal to the fractional share times the Closing Price on the trading day immediately preceding the exercise calculated to the nearest penny.

 

6.        No Dilution or Impairment.

 

6.1       Actions to Permit Issuance of Warrant Shares. The Company will not, by amendment of its certificate of incorporation or through any consolidation, merger, reorganization, transfer of assets, 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 the Warrants, but will always in good faith assist in the carrying out of all the terms and in the taking of all actions necessary or appropriate to protect the rights of the Holder. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Company (a) will not permit the par value of any shares of Common Stock receivable upon the exercise of the Warrants to exceed the amount payable therefor upon exercise, (b) will take all actions necessary or appropriate in order that the Company may validly and legally issue fully paid and nonassessable shares of Common Stock on the exercise of the Warrants, and (c) will not take any action which results in any adjustment of the Warrant Price if the total number of shares of Common Stock issuable after the action upon the exercise of the Warrant would exceed the total number of shares of Common Stock then authorized by the Company's certificate of incorporation and available for the purpose of issuance upon exercise.

 

6.2       Acknowledgement of Company’s Obligations. The Company acknowledges that its obligation to issue the Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants is binding upon it and enforceable regardless of the dilution that such issuance may have on the ownership interests of other stockholders.

 

   
 

 

7.        Chief Financial Officer’s Report as to Adjustments. In the case of any adjustment or re-adjustment in the shares of Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of the Warrants, the Company at its expense will promptly compute the adjustment or re-adjustment in accordance with the terms of the Warrants and cause its Chief Financial Officer to certify the computation (other than any computation of the fair value of property as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors of the Company) and prepare a report setting forth the adjustment or re-adjustment and showing in reasonable detail the method of calculation thereof and the facts upon which the adjustment or re-adjustment is based, including a statement of (a) the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding or deemed to be outstanding and (b) the Warrant Price in effect immediately prior to the deemed issuance or sale and as adjusted and re-adjusted (if required by Section 4 above) on account thereof. The Company will mail a copy of each report to the Holder promptly and will, upon the written request at any time of the Holder, furnish to the Holder a like report setting forth the Warrant Price at the time in effect and showing in reasonable detail how it was calculated. The Company will also keep copies of all reports at its office maintained under Section 11.2(a) hereof and will cause them to be available for inspection at the office during normal business hours upon reasonable notice by the Holder or any prospective purchaser of the Warrants designated by the Holder.

 

8.       Reservation of Shares. The Company shall at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock, free from all taxes, liens and charges with respect to the issue thereof and not be subject to preemptive rights or other similar rights of stockholders of the Company, solely for the purpose of effecting the exercise of the Warrants, such number of its shares of Common Stock as shall from time to time be sufficient to effect the exercise thereof, and if at any time the number of authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock shall not be sufficient to effect the exercise of the Warrants, in addition to such other remedies as shall be available to the Holder, the Company will take such corporate action as may, in the opinion of its counsel, be necessary to increase the number of authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock to such number of shares as shall be sufficient for such purposes, including without limitation, using its best efforts to obtain the requisite stockholder approval necessary to increase the number of authorized shares of the Company’s Common Stock. All shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrants shall be duly authorized and, when issued upon exercise, shall be validly issued and, in the case of shares, fully paid and nonassessable and free from all preemptive or similar rights, taxes, liens and charges with respect to the issue thereof, and that upon issuance such shares shall be listed on each securities exchange, if any, on which the other shares of outstanding Common Stock of the Company are then listed.

 

9.       Listing. The Company shall always comply in all respects with the Company’s reporting, filing and other obligations under the by-laws or rules of each national securities exchange or inter-dealer quotation system upon which shares of Common Stock are then listed and shall list the shares issuable upon the exercise of the Warrants on such national securities exchange or inter-dealer quotation system.

 

10.        Investment Representations: Restrictions on Transfer.

 

10.1       Investment Representations. The Holder acknowledges that the Warrant and the Warrant Shares have not been and, except as otherwise provided herein or in the Exchange Agreement, will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”), or qualified under applicable state securities laws and that the transferability thereof is restricted by the registration provisions of the Act as well as such state laws. The Holder represents that it is acquiring this Warrant and will acquire the Warrant Shares for its own account, for investment purposes only and not with a view to resale or other distribution thereof, nor with the intention of selling, transferring or otherwise disposing of all or any part of such securities for any particular event or circumstance, except selling, transferring or disposing of them upon full compliance with all applicable provisions of the Act, the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Rules and Regulations promulgated by the Commission thereunder, and any applicable state securities laws. The Holder further understands and agrees that (i) neither the Warrant nor the Warrant Shares may be sold or otherwise transferred unless they are subsequently registered under the Act and qualified under any applicable state securities laws or, in the opinion of counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Company, an exemption from such registration and qualification is available; (ii) any routine sales of the Company's securities made in reliance upon Rule 144 promulgated by the Commission under the Act, can be effected only under the terms and conditions of that Rule, including applicable holding periods and timely filing requirements with the Commission for the Company; and (iii) except as otherwise set forth herein, the Company is under no obligation to register the Warrants or the Warrant Shares on its behalf or to assist it in complying with any exemption from registration under the Act. The Holder agrees that each certificate representing any Warrant Shares for which the Warrant may be exercised will bear on its face a legend in substantially the following form:

 

   
 

 

These securities have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933 or qualified under any state securities laws. They may not be sold, hypothecated or otherwise transferred in the absence of an effective registration statement under that Act or qualification under applicable state securities laws without an opinion counsel reasonably acceptable to the Company that such registration and qualification are not required.

 

 

10.2       Notice of Proposed Transfer; Opinion of Counsel. Prior to any transfer of any securities that are not registered under an effective registration statement under the Act (“Restricted Securities”), the Holder will give written notice to the Company of the Holder's intention to effect a transfer and to comply in all other respects with this Section 10.2. Each notice (a) shall describe the manner and circumstances of the proposed transfer, and (b) shall designate counsel for the Holder giving the notice (who may be in-house counsel for the Holder). The Holder giving notice will submit a copy thereof to the counsel designated in the notice. The following provisions shall then apply:

 

(a)       If in the opinion of counsel for the Holder reasonably satisfactory to the Company the proposed transfer (i.e. private sale of Restricted Securities) may be effected without registration of Restricted Securities under the Act (which opinion shall state the bases for the legal conclusions reached therein), the Holder shall thereupon be entitled to transfer the Restricted Securities in accordance with the terms of the notice delivered by the Holder to the Company. Each certificate representing the Restricted Securities issued upon or relating to any transfer shall bear the restrictive legends required by Section 10.1 hereof.

 

(b)       If the opinion called for in (i) above is not delivered, the Holder shall not be entitled to transfer the Restricted Securities until either (x) receipt by the Company of a further notice from such Holder under the foregoing provisions of this Section 10.2 and fulfillment of the provisions of clause (i) above, or (y) such Restricted Securities have been effectively registered under the Act.

 

10.3        Termination of Restrictions. The restrictions imposed by this Section 10 upon the transferability of Restricted Securities shall cease and terminate as to any particular Restricted Securities: (a) which Restricted Securities shall have been effectively registered under the Act, or (b) when, in the opinions of both counsel for the holder thereof and counsel for the Company, which opinion shall not be unreasonably withheld, such restrictions are no longer required in order to insure compliance with the Act or Section 10 hereof. Whenever such restrictions shall cease and terminate as to any Restricted Securities, the holder thereof shall be entitled to receive from the Company, without expense (other than applicable transfer taxes, if any), new securities of like tenor not bearing the applicable legends required by Section 10.1 hereof.

 

11.        Ownership, Transfer and Substitution of Warrant.

 

11.1        Ownership of Warrant. The Company may treat the Holder, in whose name this Warrant is registered to in the Warrant Register maintained under Section 11.2(b) hereof, as the owner and holder thereof for all purposes, notwithstanding any notice to the contrary, except that, if and when any Warrant is properly assigned by a notice in substantially the form attached to this Warrant as Exhibit B (or a reasonable facsimile thereof) duly executed by the holder thereof in blank, the Company shall treat the bearer thereof as the owner of such Warrant for all purposes, notwithstanding any notice to the contrary. Subject to Section 10 hereof, this Warrant, if properly assigned, may be exercised by a new holder without a new Warrant first having been issued.

 

11.2        Office; Transfer and Exchange of Warrant.

 

(a)       The Company will maintain an office (which may be an agency maintained at a bank) at 201 Shipyard Way, Suite E, Newport Beach, CA 92663 (until the Company notifies the Holder of any change of location of the office) where notices, presentations and demands in respect of the may be made upon it.

 

   
 

 

(b)       The Company shall cause to be kept at its office maintained under Section 11.2(a) hereof a Warrant Register for the registration and transfer of the Warrants. The names and addresses of holders of the Warrants, the transfers thereof and the names and addresses of transferees of the Warrants shall be registered in such Warrant Register. The Person in whose name any Warrant shall be so registered shall be deemed and treated as the owner and holder thereof for all purposes of such Warrant, and the Company shall not be affected by any notice or knowledge to the contrary.

 

(c)       Upon the surrender of a Warrant, properly endorsed, for registration of transfer or for exchange at the office of the Company maintained under Section 11.2(a) hereof, the Company at its expense will (subject to compliance with Section 12 hereof, if applicable) execute and deliver to or upon the order of the Holder thereof a new Warrant of like tenor, in the name of such holder or as such holder (upon payment by such holder of any applicable transfer taxes) may direct, calling in the aggregate on the face thereof for the number of shares of Common Stock called for on the face of the Warrant so surrendered.

 

11.3        Replacement of Warrant. Upon receipt of evidence reasonably satisfactory to the Company of the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of a Warrant and, in the case of any such loss, theft or destruction of a Warrant, upon delivery of indemnity reasonably satisfactory to the Company in form and amount or, in the case of any mutilation, upon surrender of a Warrant for cancellation at the office of the Company maintained under Section 11.2(a) hereof, the Company at its expense will execute and deliver, in lieu thereof, a new Warrant of like tenor and dated the date hereof.

 

12.        No Rights or Liabilities as Stockholder. Except as may otherwise be provided herein, no Holder shall be entitled to vote or receive dividends or be deemed the holder of any shares of Common Stock or any other securities of the Company which may at any time be issuable on the exercise hereof for any purpose, nor shall anything contained herein be construed to confer upon the Holder, as such, any of the rights of a stockholder of the Company or any right to vote for the election of directors or upon any matter submitted to stockholders at any meeting thereof, or to give or withhold consent to any corporate action (whether upon any recapitalization, issuance of stock, reclassification of stock, change of par value, consolidation, merger, conveyance, or otherwise) or to receive notice of meetings, or to receive dividends or subscription rights or otherwise until such Holder’s Warrant shall have been exercised and the shares of Common Stock purchasable upon the exercise hereof shall have become deliverable, as provided herein. The Holder will not be entitled to share in the assets of the Company in the event of liquidation, dissolution or the winding up of the Company.

 

13.        Notices. Any notice or other communication in connection with this Warrant shall be deemed to be given if in writing addressed as hereinafter provided and actually delivered at such address: (a) if to any Holder, at the registered address of such holder as set forth in the Warrant Register kept at the office of the Company maintained under Section 11.2(a) hereof, or (b) if to the Company, to the attention of its Chief Financial Officer at its office maintained under Section 11.2(a) hereof; provided, however, that the exercise of any Warrant shall be effective in the manner provided in Section 3 hereof.

 

14.       Payment of Taxes. The Company will pay all documentary stamp taxes attributable to the issuance of shares of Common Stock underlying this Warrant upon exercise of this Warrant; provided, however, that the Company shall not be required to pay any tax which may be payable in respect of any transfer involved in the registration of any certificate for shares of Common Stock underlying this Warrant in a name other that of the Holder. The Holder is responsible for all other tax liability that may arise because of holding or transferring this Warrant or receiving shares of Common Stock underlying this Warrant upon exercise hereof.

 

15.       Warrant Agent. The Company shall serve as warrant agent under for the Warrants. Upon 30 days’ notice to the Holder, the Company may appoint a new warrant agent. Any corporation into which the Company or any new warrant agent may be merged or any corporation resulting from any consolidation to which the Company or any new warrant agent shall be a party or any corporation to which the Company or any new warrant agent transfers substantially all its corporate trust or stockholders’ services business shall be successor warrant agent under this Warrant without any further act. Any such successor warrant agent shall promptly cause notice of its succession as warrant agent to be mailed (by first class mail, postage prepaid) to the Holder at the Holder’s last address as shown on the Warrant Register.

 

   
 

 

16.       Miscellaneous. This Warrant and any term hereof may be changed, waived, discharged or terminated only by an instrument in writing signed by the party against which enforcement of the change, waiver, discharge or termination is sought. This Warrant shall be construed and enforced in accordance with and governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania applicable to contracts made and to be performed entirely within such State. Any action, suit or proceeding in connection with this Warrant may be brought in a federal or state court of record located in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, and Holder and Company each agrees to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such court and waives any objection which either may have, based on improper venue or forum non conveniens, to the conduct of any proceeding in any such court and waives personal service of any and all process upon it, and consents that all such service of process be made by mail or messenger directed to it at the address referred to in Section 13 above and that service so made shall be deemed to be completed upon the earlier of actual receipt or five days after the same shall have been posted to its address. The section headings in this Warrant are for purposes of convenience only and shall not constitute a part hereof. The use herein of the masculine pronouns or similar terms shall be deemed to include the feminine and neuter genders as well and vice versa and the use of the singular pronouns shall be deemed to include the plural as well and vice versa.

EXCHANGE AGREEMENT

 

THIS EXCHANGE AGREEMENT (the “Agreement”) is made as of July 3, 2019 (the “Effective Date”), by and between DPW Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”) and [●], a [●] limited liability company with an address at [●] (the “Investor”).

WHEREAS, the Company conducted a 1 for 20 reverse split of its issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock effective on March 15, 2019, thus adjusting the Warrant to presently be exercisable for 15,000 Warrant Shares at an exercise price of $23.00 per share; and

 

WHEREAS, subject to the satisfaction of the conditions set forth herein, the Company and the Investor desire to enter into a transaction wherein the Company shall issue the Investor a Convertible Promissory Note (the “New Note”) in the principal amount of $1,292,000 plus a default premium in the amount of $200,000 (the “Default Premium”), as reduced pursuant to the terms hereof pursuant to prepayment or otherwise, for an aggregate of $1,492,000 (the “Principal”), in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A, as well as the Warrant described below in exchange for the Securities.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties agree as follows:

 

1.            Exchange; Forbearance. The closing of the Exchange (the “Closing”) will occur on or before July 3, 2019 (or such later date as the parties hereto may agree in writing) following the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth herein (such date, the “Closing Date”). Pending the Closing up to and through 5:00 pm Eastern Standard time on July 5, 2019, the Investor shall take no action to enforce its rights under the Original Note. On the Closing Date, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Investor and the Company shall exchange the Original Note for the New Note, which shall be convertible into the Conversion Shares as set forth therein.

1.2.       It shall be a condition to the obligation of the Investor, on the one hand, and the Company, on the other hand, to consummate the Exchange contemplated hereunder that the other party’s representations and warranties contained herein are true and correct on the Closing Date with the same effect as though made on such date, unless waived in writing by the party to whom such representations and warranties are made.

 

2.            Representations and Warranties of the Company. The Company hereby represents and warrants to the Investor that:

 

2.1       Organization. The Company is a corporation duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the State of Delaware, with the requisite power and authority to own and use its properties and assets and to carry on its business as currently conducted. The Company is not in violation nor default of any of the provisions of its certificate of incorporation, bylaws or other organizational or charter documents.

 1 
 

 

2.2       Authorization. This Agreement has been duly and validly authorized, executed and delivered on behalf of the Company and shall constitute the legal, valid and binding obligations of the Company enforceable against the Company in accordance with their respective terms, except as such enforceability may be limited by general principles of equity or to applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium, liquidation and other similar laws relating to, or affecting generally, the enforcement of applicable creditors’ rights and remedies. The execution, delivery and performance by the Company of this Agreement and the consummation by the Company of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby will not: (i) conflict with, or constitute a default (or an event which with notice or lapse of time or both would become a default) under, or give to others any rights of termination, amendment, acceleration or cancellation of, any agreement, indenture or instrument to which the Company is a party or by which it is bound; or (ii) result in a violation of any law, rule, regulation, order, judgment or decree (including federal and state securities or “blue sky” laws) applicable to the Company, provided Exchange Approval (as hereinafter defined) is obtained in a timely manner.
