(c)    Treatment of Warrant on Acquisition Event.  The Company shall provide Warrantholder with written notice of any Acquisition Event not less than ten  (10)  business days prior to the closing of the proposed Acquisition Event (the “Company Acquisition Notice”)Following receipt of the Company Acquisition Notice, the Warrantholder shall notify the Company in writing within five (5) business days of its receipt of the Company Acquisition Notice (the “Warrantholder Acquisition Notice”) whether: (i) the Warrantholder elects to exercise this Warrant pursuant to Sections 1(a) and/or 1(b) (which exercise will be deemed effective immediately prior to and contingent upon the consummation of such Acquisition Event) or (ii) the Warrantholder elects not to exercise the Warrant (in which case the Warrant will expire immediately prior to the consummation of such Acquisition Event).  In the event the Company does not timely provide such Company Acquisition Notice or the Warrantholder fails to provide the Warrantholder Acquisition Notice prior to the Acquisition Event, then if the consideration the Warrantholder would receive in the Acquisition Event as a holder of Warrant Shares exceeds the Warrant Price then in effect for such Warrant Shares,  the Warrant shall be deemed to be automatically exercised pursuant to the Section 1(b) immediately prior to and contingent upon the consummation of such Acquisition Event.  Thereafter, the Company shall promptly notify the Warrantholder of the number of Warrant Shares (or such other securities) issued upon such exercise to the Warrantholder and the consideration the Warrantholder is entitled to receive as a result of the Acquisition Event.

(i)           (A) the Common Stock Deemed Outstanding immediately prior to such issuance or sale (or deemed issuance or sale) plus (B) the number of shares of Common Stock which the aggregate consideration received or to be received by the Company for the total number of such additional shares of Common Stock so issued or sold (or deemed issued or sold pursuant to Section 2(c)) would purchase at such Warrant Price; by

 

(ii)         the sum of (A) the Common Stock Deemed Outstanding immediately prior to such issuance or sale (or deemed issuance or sale) plus (B) the total number of such additional shares of Common Stock so issued or sold (or deemed issued or sold pursuant to Section 2(c)).

 

For purposes of this Section 2(a), Common Stock Deemed Outstanding” means, at any given time, the sum of (i) the number of shares of Common Stock actually outstanding at such time, plus (ii) the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of Options actually outstanding at such time, plus (iii) the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion or exchange of Convertible Securities actually outstanding at such time (treating as actually outstanding any Convertible Securities issuable upon exercise of Options actually outstanding at such time), in each case, regardless of whether the Options or Convertible Securities are actually exercisable at such time.

 

(bExceptions To Adjustment Upon Issuance of Common Stock. Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, there shall be no adjustment to the Warrant Price or the number of Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise of this Warrant with respect to any Excluded Issuance.

(i)  Issuance of Options.  Subject to Section 2(b), if the Company shall, at any time or from time to time after the Initial Exercise Date and prior to the Expiration Date, in any manner grant or sell (whether directly or by assumption in a merger or otherwise) any Options, whether or not such Options or the right to convert or exchange any Convertible Securities issuable upon the exercise of such Options are immediately exercisable, and the price per share (determined as provided in this paragraph and in Section 2(c)(v)) for which Common Stock is issuable upon the exercise of such Options or upon the conversion or exchange of Convertible Securities issuable upon the exercise of such Options is less than the Warrant Price in effect immediately prior to the time of the granting or sale of such Options, then the total maximum number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of such Options or upon conversion or exchange of the total maximum amount of Convertible Securities issuable upon the exercise of such Options shall be deemed to have been issued as of the date of granting or sale of such Options (and thereafter shall be deemed to be outstanding for purposes of adjusting the Warrant Price under Section 2(a)), at a price per share equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (A) the sum (which sum shall constitute the applicable consideration received for purposes of Section 2(a)) of (x) the total amount, if any, received or receivable by the Company as consideration for the granting or sale of all such Options, plus (y) the minimum aggregate amount of additional consideration, if any, payable to the Company upon the exercise of all such Options, plus (z), in the case of such Options which relate to Convertible Securities, the minimum aggregate amount of additional consideration, if any, payable to the Company upon the issuance or sale of all such Convertible Securities and the conversion or exchange of all such Convertible Securities, by (B) the total maximum number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of all such Options or upon the conversion or exchange of all Convertible Securities issuable upon the exercise of all such Options.

4


 

Warrant Price in effect immediately prior to the time of the granting or sale of such Convertible Securities, then the total maximum number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion or exchange of the total maximum amount of such Convertible Securities shall be deemed to have been issued as of the date of granting or sale of such Convertible Securities (and thereafter shall be deemed to be outstanding for purposes of adjusting the Exercise Price pursuant to Section 2(a)), at a price per share equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (A) the sum (which sum shall constitute the applicable consideration received for purposes of Section 2(a)) of (x) the total amount, if any, received or receivable by the Company as consideration for the granting or sale of such Convertible Securities, plus (y) the minimum aggregate amount of additional consideration, if any, payable to the Company upon the conversion or exchange of all such Convertible Securities, by (B) the total maximum number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon the conversion or exchange of all such Convertible Securities. Except as otherwise provided in Section 2(c)(iii), (A) no further adjustment of the Warrant Price shall be made upon the actual issuance of Common Stock upon conversion or exchange of such Convertible Securities and (B) no further adjustment of the Warrant Price shall be made by reason of the issue or sale of Convertible Securities upon exercise of any Options to purchase any such Convertible Securities for which adjustments of the Exercise Price have been made pursuant to the other provisions of this Section 2(c).

 

(iii)  Change in Terms of Options or Convertible Securities. Upon any change in any of (A) the total amount received or receivable by the Company as consideration for the granting or sale of any Options or Convertible Securities referred to in Section 2(c)(i) or Section 2(c)(ii) hereof, (B) the minimum aggregate amount of additional consideration, if any, payable to the Company upon the exercise of any Options or upon the issuance, conversion or exchange of any Convertible Securities referred to in Section 2(c)(i) or Section 2(c)(ii) hereof, (C) the rate at which Convertible Securities referred to in Section 2(c)(i) or Section 2(c)(ii) hereof are convertible into or exchangeable for Common Stock, or (D) the maximum number of shares of Common Stock issuable in connection with any Options referred to in Section 2(c)(i) hereof or any Convertible Securities referred to in Section 2(c)(ii) hereof (in each case, other than in connection with an Excluded Issuance), then (whether or not the original issuance or sale of such Options or Convertible Securities resulted in an adjustment to the Warrant Price pursuant to this Section 2) the Warrant Price in effect at the time of such change shall be adjusted or readjusted, as applicable, to the Warrant Price which would have been in effect at such time pursuant to the provisions of this Section 4 had such Options or Convertible Securities still outstanding provided for such changed consideration, conversion rate or maximum number of shares, as the case may be, at the time initially granted, issued or sold, but only if as a result of such adjustment or readjustment the Exercise Price then in effect is reduced.

 

(iv)  Treatment of Expired or Terminated Options or Convertible Securities. Upon the expiration or termination of any unexercised Option (or portion thereof) or any unconverted or unexchanged Convertible Security (or portion thereof) for which any adjustment (either upon its original issuance or upon a revision of its terms) was made pursuant to this Section 2 (including without limitation upon the redemption or purchase for consideration of all or any portion of such Option or Convertible Security by the Company), the Warrant Price then in effect hereunder shall forthwith be changed pursuant to the provisions of this Section 2(c) to the Warrant Price which would have been in effect at the time of such expiration or termination had such unexercised Option (or portion thereof) or unconverted or unexchanged Convertible Security (or portion thereof), to the extent outstanding immediately prior to such expiration or termination, never been issued.

 

(v)  Calculation of Consideration Received. If the Company shall, at any time or from time to time after the Initial Exercise Date, issue or sell, or is deemed to have issued or sold in accordance with Section 2(d), any shares of Common Stock, Options or Convertible Securities: (A) for cash, the consideration received therefor shall be deemed to be the net amount received by the Company therefor; (B) marketable securities, the amount of consideration shall be the VWAP of such securities for such applicable date of issuance; (C) for consideration other than cash or marketable securities, the amount of the consideration other than cash or marketable securities received by the Company shall be the fair value of such consideration; or (D) for no specifically allocated consideration in connection with an issuance or sale of other securities of the Company, together comprising one integrated transaction, the amount of the consideration therefor shall be deemed to be the fair value of such portion of the aggregate consideration

5


 

received by the Company in such transaction as is attributable to such shares of Common Stock, Options or Convertible Securities, as the case may be, issued in such transaction. For purposes of this clause (v), the net amount of any cash consideration and the fair value of any consideration other than cash or marketable securities shall be determined in good faith jointly by the Board and the Holder.

 

(d)  Stock Dividends, Splits and CombinationsIf the Company shall, at any time or from time to time while this Warrant is outstanding, pay a dividend or make a distribution on its Common Stock in shares of Common Stock, subdivide its outstanding shares of Common Stock into a greater number of shares or combine its outstanding shares of Common Stock into a smaller number of shares, then (i) the Warrant Price in effect immediately prior to the date on which such change shall become effective shall be adjusted by multiplying such Warrant Price by a fraction, the numerator of which shall be the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to such change and the denominator of which shall be the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to such change and (ii) the number of Warrant Shares purchasable upon exercise of this Warrant shall be adjusted by multiplying the number of Warrant Shares purchasable upon exercise of this Warrant immediately prior to the date on which such change shall become effective by a fraction, the numerator of which is shall be the Warrant Price in effect immediately prior to the date on which such change shall become effective and the denominator of which shall be the Warrant Price in effect immediately after giving effect to such change, calculated in accordance with clause (i) above.  Such adjustments shall be made successively whenever any event listed above shall occur.

  

(eReorganizations.  If any capital reorganization, reclassification of the capital stock of the Company, or consolidation or merger of the Company that does not also qualify as an Acquisition Event shall be effected, then, as a condition of such reorganization, reclassification, or consolidation or merger, lawful and adequate provision shall be made whereby Warrantholder shall thereafter have the right to receive upon exercise of this Warrant the number of shares of stock or other securities or property to which a holder of Common Stock would have been entitled to receive in such reorganization, reclassification, consolidation or merger.  In such case, appropriate provision shall be made with respect to the rights and interests of Warrantholder hereunder to the end that the provisions of Section 2 of this Warrant (including, without limitation, provision for adjustment of the Warrant Price and the Warrant Shares) shall thereafter be applicable, as nearly equivalent as may be practicable in relation to any shares of stock, securities or property thereafter deliverable upon the exercise hereof.    

 

(f Other DistributionsIn case the Company shall fix a payment date for the making of a distribution payable in securities of other persons, evidences of indebtedness issued by the Company or other persons, assets (other than cash dividends or cash distributions payable out of consolidated earnings or earned surplus or dividends or distributions referred to in Section 2(d)), or subscription rights or warrants, then, in each such case for the purpose of this Section 2(f), the Warrantholder shall be entitled to a proportionate share of any such distribution as though they were the holders of the number of shares of Common Stock into which the Warrant is then exercisable as of the record date fixed for the determination of the holders of Common Stock entitled to such distribution.

 

3.  Fractional Interest. The Company shall not be required to issue fractions of Warrant Shares upon the exercise of this Warrant.  If any fractional share of Common Stock would, except for the provisions of the first sentence of this Section 3, be deliverable upon such exercise, the Company, in lieu of delivering such fractional share, shall pay to the exercising Warrantholder an amount in cash equal to the VWAP  (determined in accordance with Section 1(b)) of such fractional share of Common Stock on the Date of Exercise.

 

4.  Notices to Warrantholder. Upon the happening of any event requiring an adjustment of the Warrant Price, the Company shall promptly give written notice thereof to the Warrantholder at the address appearing in the records of the Company, stating the adjusted Warrant Price and the adjusted number of Warrant Shares resulting from such event and setting forth in reasonable detail the method of calculation and the facts upon which such calculation is based.  Failure to give such notice to the Warrantholder or any defect therein shall not affect the legality or validity of the subject adjustment.

 

5.  Reservation of Common Stock. At any time when this Warrant is exercisable, the Company shall at all applicable times keep reserved until issued (if necessary) as contemplated by this Section 5, out of the authorized

6


 

and unissued shares of Common Stock, at least a number of shares of Common Stock as shall from time to time be necessary to effect the exercise of all of this Warrant then outstanding.  

 

6.  Compliance with Securities Laws. This Warrant may only be exercised by the Warrantholder in accordance with applicable securities laws.  The Company may cause the legend set forth on the first page of this Warrant to be set forth on each Warrant, and a similar legend on any security issued or issuable upon exercise of this Warrant, unless counsel for the Company is of the opinion as to any such security that such legend is unnecessary.

 

7.  Payment of Taxes. The Company will pay any documentary stamp taxes attributable to the initial issuance of Warrant Shares issuable upon the exercise of the Warrant; provided, however, that the Company shall not be required to pay any tax or taxes which may be payable in respect of any transfer involved in the issuance or delivery of any certificates for Warrant Shares in a name other than that of the Warrantholder in respect of which such shares are issued, and in such case, the Company shall not be required to issue or deliver any certificate for Warrant Shares or any Warrant until the person requesting the same has paid to the Company the amount of such tax or has established to the Company’s reasonable satisfaction that such tax has been paid.  The Warrantholder shall be responsible for income taxes due under federal, state or other law, if any such tax is due.

 

8Notices. Unless otherwise provided, any notice required or permitted under this Warrant shall be given in writing and shall be deemed effectively given and received as hereinafter described (i) if given by personal delivery, then such notice shall be deemed received upon such delivery, (ii) if given by telex or facsimile, then such notice shall be deemed received upon receipt of confirmation of complete transmittal, (iii) if given by certified mail return receipt requested, then such notice shall be deemed received upon the day such return receipt is signed, and (iv) if given by an internationally recognized overnight air courier, then such notice shall be deemed given one business day after delivery to such carrier.  Copies of such notices shall also be transmitted by email to the email address provided for on the signature page of the Purchase Agreement.  All notices shall be addressed as follows:  if to the Warrantholder, at its address as set forth in the Company’s books and records; and, if to the Company, at the address as follows, or at such other address as the Warrantholder or the Company may designate by ten days’ advance written notice to the other:
