(iv)

The Company shall at all times reserve and keep available, out of its authorized but unissued Equity Interests, solely for the purpose of providing for the exercise of this Warrant, the aggregate Equity Interests issuable upon exercise of this Warrant in full (disregarding whether or not this Warrant is exercisable by its terms at any such time).

10.

12.
Adjustments and Other Rights. The Exercise Price and Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise of this Warrant shall be subject to adjustment from time to time as follows; provided that if more than one subsection of this Section 12 is applicable to a single event, the subsection shall be applied that produces the largest adjustment and no single event shall cause an adjustment under more than one subsection of this Section 12 so as to result in duplication.
(i)
Stock Splits, Subdivisions, Reclassifications or Combinations. If the Company shall at any time or from time to time (a) declare, order, pay or make a dividend or make a distribution on Common Stock in additional shares of Common Stock, (b) split, subdivide or reclassify the outstanding shares of Common Stock into a greater number of shares or (c) combine or reclassify the outstanding shares of Common Stock into a smaller number of shares, the number of Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise of this Warrant at the time of the record date for such dividend or distribution or the effective date of such split, subdivision, combination or reclassification shall be proportionately adjusted so that the Warrantholder immediately after such record date or effective date, as the case may be, shall be entitled to purchase the number of shares of Common Stock which such holder would have owned or been entitled to receive in respect of the shares of Common Stock subject to this Warrant after such date had this Warrant been exercised in full immediately prior to such record date or effective date, as the case may be (disregarding whether or not this Warrant had been exercisable by its terms at such time). In the event of such adjustment, the Exercise Price in effect at the time of the record date for such dividend or distribution or the effective date of such split, subdivision, combination or reclassification shall be immediately adjusted to the number obtained by dividing (x) the product of (1) the number of Warrant Shares issuable upon the exercise of this Warrant in full before the adjustment determined pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence (disregarding whether or not this Warrant was exercisable by its terms at such time) and (2) the Exercise Price in effect immediately prior to the record or effective date, as the case may be, for the dividend, distribution, split, subdivision, combination or reclassification giving rise to such adjustment by (y) the new number of Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrant in full determined pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence (disregarding whether or not this Warrant is exercisable by its terms at such time); provided that such product shall be rounded to the nearest whole Warrant Share.
(ii)
Repurchases. If the Company shall at any time or from time to time effect Repurchases (other than a Permitted Repurchase), then the Exercise Price shall be reduced to the price determined by multiplying the Exercise Price in effect immediately prior to the first purchase of Equity Interests comprising such Repurchases by a fraction of which the numerator shall be (A) the product of (1) the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to the first purchase of Equity Interests comprising such Repurchases and (2) the Market Price per share of Common Stock on the Trading Day immediately preceding the first public announcement by the Company of the intent to effect such Repurchases, minus (B) the Assumed Payment Amount, and of which the denominator shall be the product of (X) the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to the first purchase of Equity Interests comprising such Repurchases minus the number of shares of Common Stock so repurchased and (Y) the Market Price per share of Common Stock on the Trading Day immediately preceding the first public announcement by the Company of the intent to effect such Repurchases. In such event, the number of Warrant Shares issuable upon the exercise of this Warrant shall be

-10-

 

ACTIVE/117733159.13

 


 

increased to the number obtained by multiplying such number of Warrant Shares by the quotient of (A) the Exercise Price in effect immediately prior to the first purchase of Equity Interests comprising such Repurchases divided by (B) the new Exercise Price determined in accordance with the immediately preceding sentence. For the avoidance of doubt, no increase to the Exercise Price or decrease in the number of Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise of this Warrant shall be made pursuant to this Section 12(ii). For purposes of the foregoing, the “Assumed Payment Amount” with respect to any Repurchases shall mean the aggregate Market Price (in the case of securities) and/or Fair Market Value (in the case of cash and/or any other property), as applicable, as of such Repurchases, of the aggregate consideration paid to effect such Repurchases.
(iii)
Fundamental Transactions. In the event of any Fundamental Transaction, the Company shall notify the Warrantholder in writing of such Fundamental Transaction as promptly as practicable (but in no event later than the earlier of 10 Business Days prior to any required shareholder approval or the effectiveness thereof), and the Warrantholder shall have the right to receive upon any subsequent exercise of this Warrant, the same securities, instruments, and/or other property (including cash), if any, as would have actually been paid for or with respect to a Warrant Share as if such Warrant Share were shares of Common Stock outstanding on and as of the closing of any such Fundamental Transactions (without regard to any limitation on the exercise of this Warrant, it being understood that the closing of a Fundamental Transaction shall not impact the requirement that an applicable Vesting Event shall occur prior to the exercise of this Warrant with respect to any corresponding Warrant Shares) (the “Alternate Consideration”), and the Company shall not be a party to or permit any such Fundamental Transaction to occur unless the requirements of this Section 12 are satisfied and made as a part of the terms thereof. If holders of Common Stock are given any choice as to the securities, cash or property (including cash) to be received in a Fundamental Transaction, then the Holder shall be given the same choice as to the Alternate Consideration it receives upon any exercise of this Warrant following such Fundamental Transaction. The Company shall cause any successor entity in any Fundamental Transaction in which the Company is not the survivor (the “Successor Entity”) to assume in writing all of the obligations of the Company under this Warrant in accordance with the provisions of this Warrant and to covenant to, at the option of the Holder, deliver to the Warrantholder in exchange for this Warrant a warrant of any Successor Entity evidenced by a written instrument substantially similar in form and substance to this Warrant which is exercisable for the Alternate Consideration. For avoidance of doubt, in the event that the Common Stock will not be canceled as a result of any Fundamental Transaction, the Alternate Consideration shall include the right of the Warrantholder to convert the Warrant into the Warrant Shares in accordance with the terms of this Warrant, subject to any other applicable adjustment in accordance with Section 12 resulting from the Fundamental Transaction, and further providing that to the extent a Fundamental Transaction includes any element that would be subject to adjustment pursuant to Section 12(i), such element of the Fundamental Transaction will be adjusted solely in accordance with Section 12(i), and any other applicable elements of the Fundamental Transaction not subject to adjustment pursuant to Section 12(i) will be adjusted in accordance with this Section 12(iii).
(iv)

one-hundredth (1/100th) of a share, as the case may be. Any provision of this Section 12 to the contrary notwithstanding, no adjustment in the Exercise Price or the number of Warrant Shares into which this Warrant is exercisable shall be made if the amount of such adjustment would be less than $0.01 or one-tenth (1/10th) of a share of Common Stock, but any such amount shall be carried forward and an adjustment with respect thereto shall be made at the time of and together with any subsequent adjustment which, together with such amount and any other amount or amounts so carried forward, shall aggregate $0.01 or 1/10th of a share of Common Stock, or more.
(v)
Timing of Issuance of Additional Securities Upon Certain Adjustments. In any case in which (a) the provisions of this Section 12 shall require that an adjustment (the “Subject Adjustment”) shall become effective immediately after a record date (the “Subject Record Date”) for an event and (b) the Warrantholder exercises this Warrant after the Subject Record Date and before the consummation of such event, the Company may defer until the consummation of such event issuing to such Warrantholder the incrementally additional shares of Common Stock or other property issuable upon such exercise by reason of the Subject Adjustment; provided, however, that the Company upon request shall promptly deliver to such Warrantholder a due bill or other appropriate instrument evidencing such Warrantholder’s right to receive such additional shares (or other property, as applicable), upon the consummation of such event.
(vi)
Statement Regarding Adjustments. Whenever the Exercise Price or the Warrant Shares into which this Warrant is exercisable shall be adjusted as provided in Section 12, the Company shall promptly prepare a statement showing in reasonable detail the facts requiring such adjustment and the Exercise Price that shall be in effect and the Warrant Shares into which this Warrant shall be exercisable after such adjustment, and cause a copy of such statement to be delivered to the Warrantholder as promptly as practicable after the event giving rise to the adjustment.
(vii)
Notice of Adjustment Event. In the event that the Company shall propose to take any action of the type described in this Section 12 (but only if the action of the type described in this Section 12 would result in an adjustment in the Exercise Price or the Warrant Shares into which this Warrant is exercisable or a change in the type of securities or property to be delivered upon exercise of this Warrant), the Company shall provide written notice to the Warrantholder, which notice shall specify the record date, if any, with respect to any such action and the approximate date on which such action is to take place. Such notice shall also set forth the facts with respect thereto as shall be reasonably necessary to indicate the effect on the Exercise Price and the number, kind or class of shares or other securities or property which shall be deliverable upon exercise of this Warrant. In the case of any action which would require the fixing of a record date, such notice shall be given at least 10 days prior to the date so fixed. In case of all other action, such notice shall be given at least 10 days prior to the taking of such proposed action unless the Company reasonably determines in good faith that, given the nature of such action, the provision of such notice at least 10 days in advance is not reasonably practicable from a timing perspective, in which case such notice shall be given as far in advance prior to the taking of such proposed action as is reasonably practicable from a timing perspective.

(viii)
Adjustment Rules. Any adjustments pursuant to this Section 12 shall be made successively whenever an event referred to herein shall occur. If an adjustment in Exercise Price made hereunder would reduce the Exercise Price to an amount below par value of the Common Stock, then such adjustment in Exercise Price made hereunder shall reduce the Exercise Price to the par value of the Common Stock.
(ix)
No Impairment. The Company shall not, by amendment of its certificate of incorporation, bylaws or any other organizational document, or through any reorganization, transfer of assets, consolidation, merger, 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 to be observed or performed hereunder by the Company, but shall at all times in good faith assist in the carrying out of all the provisions of this Warrant. In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing, the Company shall not take or permit to be taken any action which would (A) increase the par value of any shares of Common Stock receivable upon the exercise of this Warrant above the Exercise Price then in effect or (B) entitle the Warrantholder to an adjustment under this Section 12 if the total number of shares of Common Stock issuable after such action upon exercise of this Warrant in full (disregarding whether or not this Warrant is exercisable by its terms at such time), together with all shares of Common Stock then outstanding and all shares of Common Stock then issuable upon the exercise in full of any and all outstanding Equity Interests (disregarding whether or not any such Equity Interests are exercisable by their terms at such time) would exceed the total number of shares of Common Stock then authorized by its certificate of incorporation.
(x)
Proceedings Prior to Any Action Requiring Adjustment. As a condition precedent to the taking of any action which would require an adjustment pursuant to this Section 12, the Company shall take any and all action which may be necessary, including obtaining regulatory or other governmental, Nasdaq or other applicable securities exchange, corporate or stockholder approvals or exemptions, in order that the Company may thereafter validly and legally issue as fully paid and nonassessable all shares of Common Stock, or all other securities or other property, that the Warrantholder is entitled to receive upon exercise of this Warrant pursuant to this Section 12.
13.
Beneficial Ownership Limitation.
(i)
Notwithstanding anything in this Warrant to the contrary, the Company shall not honor any exercise of this Warrant, and a Warrantholder shall not have the right to exercise any portion of this Warrant, to the extent that, after giving effect to an attempted exercise set forth on an applicable Notice of Exercise, such Warrantholder (together with such Warrantholder’s Affiliates, and any other Person whose beneficial ownership of Common Stock would be aggregated with the Warrantholder’s for purposes of Section 13(d) or Section 16 of the Exchange Act, and any other applicable regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”), including any “group” of which the Warrantholder is a member (the foregoing, “Attribution Parties”)) would beneficially own a number of shares of Common Stock in excess of the Beneficial Ownership Limitation. For purposes of the foregoing sentence, the number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by such Warrantholder and its Attribution Parties shall include the number of Warrant Shares issuable under the Notice of Exercise with respect to

-13-

which such determination is being made, but shall exclude the number of shares of Common Stock which are issuable upon (a) exercise of the remaining, unexercised portion of any Warrant beneficially owned by such Warrantholder or any of its Attribution Parties, and (b) exercise or conversion of the unexercised or unconverted portion of any other securities of the Company (including any warrants) beneficially owned by such Warrantholder or any of its Attribution Parties that are subject to a limitation on conversion or exercise similar to the limitation contained herein. For purposes of this Section 13, beneficial ownership shall be calculated in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act and any other applicable regulations of the Commission. In addition, for purposes hereof, “group” has the meaning set forth in Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act and the applicable regulations of the Commission. For purposes of this Section 13, in determining the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock, a Warrantholder may rely on the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock as stated in the most recent of the following: (x) the Company’s most recent periodic or annual filing with the Commission, as the case may be, (y) a more recent public announcement by the Company that is filed with the Commission, or (z) a more recent notice by the Company or the Company’s transfer agent to the Warrantholder setting forth the number of shares of Common Stock then outstanding. Upon the written request of a Warrantholder (which may be by email), the Company shall, within three (3) Trading Days thereof, confirm in writing to such Warrantholder (which may be via email) 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 any actual conversion or exercise of securities of the Company, including exercise of this Warrant, by such Warrantholder or its Attribution Parties since the date as of which such number of outstanding shares of Common Stock was last publicly reported or confirmed to the Warrantholder. The Company shall be entitled to rely on representations made to it by the Warrantholder in any Notice of Exercise regarding its Beneficial Ownership Limitation. The Warrantholder acknowledges that the Warrantholder is solely responsible for any schedules or statements required to be filed by it in accordance with Section 13(d) or Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act.
(ii)
The “Beneficial Ownership Limitation” shall initially be 4.999% of the number of shares of the Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the issuance of shares of Common Stock pursuant to such Notice of Exercise (to the extent permitted pursuant to this Section 13); provided, however, that by written notice to the Company, which will not be effective until the 61st day after such notice is given by the Warrantholder to the Company, the Warrantholder may waive or amend the provisions of this Section 13 to change the Beneficial Ownership Limitation to any other number, and the provisions of this Section 13 shall continue to apply. Upon any such waiver or amendment to the Beneficial Ownership Limitation, the Beneficial Ownership Limitation may not be further waived or amended by the Warrantholder without first providing the minimum written notice required by the immediately preceding sentence. Notwithstanding the foregoing, at any time following notice of a Change of Control Transaction under Section 12(iii) with respect to a Change of Control Transaction that is pursuant to any tender offer or exchange offer (by the Company or another Person (other than the Warrantholder or any Affiliate of the Warrantholder)), the Warrantholder may waive or amend the Beneficial Ownership Limitation effective immediately upon written notice to the Company and may reinstitute a Beneficial Ownership Limitation at any time thereafter effective immediately upon written notice to the Company.

(iii)
Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section 13, none of the provisions of this Section 13 shall restrict in any way the number of shares of Common Stock which the Warrantholder may receive or beneficially own in order to determine the amount of securities or other consideration that the Warrantholder may receive in the event of a Change of Control Transaction as contemplated in Section 12 of this Warrant.
14.
Governing Law and Jurisdiction. This Warrant shall be governed by, and construed and enforced in accordance with, the laws of the State of Delaware, without regard to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of Delaware or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Delaware. In addition, each of the parties (a) submits to the personal jurisdiction and venue of the United States District Court for the District of Delaware or any Delaware State court sitting in the City of Wilmington, Delaware and appellate courts having jurisdiction of appeals from any of the foregoing (the “Chosen Courts”), in the event any dispute (whether in contract, tort or otherwise) arises out of this Warrant or the transactions contemplated hereby, (b) agrees that it shall not attempt to deny or defeat such personal jurisdiction by motion or other request for leave from any such court, and (c) agrees that it shall not bring any claim, action or proceeding relating to this Warrant or the transactions contemplated hereby in any court other than the Chosen Courts. Each party agrees that service of process upon such party in any such claim, action or proceeding shall be effective if notice is given in accordance with the provisions of this Warrant.
15.
Binding Effect. This Warrant shall be binding upon any successors or assigns of the Company.
16.
Amendments. This Warrant may be amended and the observance of any term of this Warrant may be waived only with the written consent of the Company and the Warrantholder.
17.
Notices. Any notice, request, instruction or other document to be given hereunder by any party to the other shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been duly given (a) if sent by registered or certified mail in the United States return receipt requested, upon receipt, (b) if sent by nationally recognized overnight air courier, one Business Day after mailing, (c) if sent by email or facsimile, with a copy mailed on the same day in the manner provided in clauses (a) or (b) of this Section 17 when transmitted and receipt is confirmed, or (d) if otherwise personally delivered, when delivered. All notices hereunder shall be delivered as set forth below, or pursuant to such other instructions as may be designated in writing by the party to receive such notice.

Entire Agreement.

Specific Performance. The parties agree that failure of any party to perform its agreements and covenants hereunder, including a party’s failure to take all actions as are necessary on such party’s part in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Warrant to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby, will cause irreparable injury to the other party, for which monetary damages, even if available, will not be an adequate remedy. It is agreed that the parties shall be entitled to equitable relief including injunctive relief and specific performance of the terms hereof, without the requirement of posting a bond or other security, and each party hereby consents to the issuance of injunctive relief by any court of competent jurisdiction to compel performance of a party’s obligations and to the granting by any court of the remedy of specific performance of such party’s obligations hereunder, this being in addition to any other remedies to which the parties are entitled at law or equity.
20.
Limitation of Liability. No provision hereof, in the absence of any affirmative action by the Warrantholder to exercise this Warrant to purchase Warrant Shares, and no enumeration herein of the rights or privileges of Warrantholder, shall give rise to any liability of the Warrantholder for the purchase price of any Common Stock or as a stockholder of the Company, whether such liability is asserted by the Company or by creditors of the Company.
