This Warrant shall be exercisable at any time and from time to time prior to the Expiration Date (the “Exercise Period”). This Warrant and the right to purchase Shares hereunder shall expire and become void at the Expiration Date.

 

2.2       Manner of Exercise.

 

(a)        Holder may exercise this Warrant at any time, starting at the time of closing and from time to time during the Exercise Period, in whole or in part (but not in denominations of fewer than 100,000 Shares, except upon an exercise of this Warrant with respect to the remaining balance of Shares purchasable hereunder at the time of exercise), by delivering to the Company (i) a duly executed Notice of Exercise in substantially the form attached as Appendix 1 hereto, and (ii) a wire transfer or check for the aggregate Exercise Price of the Shares being purchased.

 

(b)        From time to time upon exercise of this Warrant, in whole or part, in accordance with its terms, the Company will instruct its transfer agent to deliver stock certificates to the Holder representing the number of Shares being purchased pursuant to such exercise, subject to adjustment as described herein.

 

(c)        Promptly following any exercise of this Warrant, if the Warrant has not been fully exercised and has not expired, the Company will deliver to the Holder a new Warrant for the balance of the Shares covered hereby.

(a)        All Shares which may be issued upon the exercise of the purchase right represented by this Warrant shall, upon issuance, be duly authorized, validly issued, fully-paid and nonassessable, and free of any liens and encumbrances except for restrictions on transfer provided for herein or under applicable federal and state securities laws, and not subject to any pre-emptive rights.

 

(b)       The Company is a corporation duly organized and validly existing under the laws of the State of Nevada, and has the full power and authority to issue this Warrant and to comply with the terms hereof. The execution, delivery and performance by the Company of its obligations under this Warrant, including, without limitation, the issuance of the Shares upon any exercise of the Warrant have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate action. This Warrant has been duly executed and delivered by the Company and is a valid and binding obligation of the Company, enforceable in accordance with its terms, except as enforcement may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or similar laws affecting enforceability of creditors’ rights generally and except as the availability of the remedy of specific enforcement, injunctive relief or other equitable relief is subject to the discretion of the court before which any proceeding therefor may be brought.

 

(c)        The Company is not subject to or bound by any provision of any certificate or articles of incorporation or by-laws, mortgage, deed of trust, lease, note, bond, indenture, other instrument or agreement, license, permit, trust, custodianship, other restriction or any applicable provision of any law, statute, rule, regulation, judgment, order, writ, injunction or decree of any court, governmental body, administrative agency or arbitrator which could prevent or be violated by or under which there would be a default (or right of termination) as a result of the execution, delivery and performance by the Company of this Warrant.

(d)       The Company is subject to the reporting requirements of Section 13 or Section 15d of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The Company is eligible to issue the Warrants and the Underlying Shares pursuant to Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act.

 

ARTICLE 4. REDEMPTION OF WARRANTS.

 

4.         Redemption of Warrants. The Company, at its option, may redeem all or any portion on a pro rata basis, of the outstanding Warrants at a price of $.01 per Warrant, upon at least 10 days’ notice to the registered Holders of Warrants, provided that the average closing price per share of Common Stock (determined as hereinafter provided) shall have been $.30 or greater, and an average of 500,000 shares traded per day, for a period of 10 consecutive business days per day ended immediately prior to the date of such notice. For the purpose of determining whether the Company may redeem the Warrants pursuant to this Section 4, the closing price per share of Common Stock for each day shall be the last reported sales price, regular way, or, in case no such reported sale takes place on such day, the average of the reported closing bid and asked prices, regular way, in either case, on any exchange (NASDAQ or OTC:BB) on which the Common Stock is listed or admitted to trading, or, if there is no such representative closing bid on NASDAQ or OTC.BB on such day, a price determined in any reasonable manner approved by the Board of Directors of the Company.

 

If the Company shall elect to redeem the Warrants pursuant to this Section 4, notice of redemption shall be given to the Holder at least 10 days prior to the date fixed for redemption, to their last addresses as they shall appear on the warrant register, but failure to give such notice by mail to the Holder of any Warrant, or any defect therein, shall not affect the validity of the proceedings for the redemption of any other Warrants. The notice shall state that the Company is redeeming the Warrant pursuant to the Section 4 at the redemption price of $.01 per Warrant, and the date fixed for redemption; shall state that payment of the redemption price of the Warrants will be made at the corporate offices of the Company upon presentation and surrender of such Warrants; shall state that the right to exercise the Warrants will terminate as provided in this Agreement (stating the date of such termination); and shall state the Exercise Price. The date of redemption for the Warrants pursuant to this Section 4 shall be any date chosen by the Company which complies with the notice requirement set forth in this Section 4. The Holder shall have the right to exercise the Warrants during this ten (10) day notice period by complying with the manner of exercise provisions of Section 2.2. If the Holder does not elect to exercise during this ten (10) day redemption notice period, the Warrants shall be considered redeemed and cancelled. If the giving of notice of redemption shall have been completed as provided above, and if funds sufficient for the redemption of the Warrants pursuant to this Section 4 shall have been deposited into a separate bank account for such purpose, the right to exercise the Warrants shall terminate, provided the Warrant holder does not exercise during the ten (10) day redemption notice period, at the close of business on the business day preceding the date fixed for redemption, and the Holder shall thereafter be entitled upon surrender of his Warrant, only to receive $.01 per Warrant, without interest.

 

ARTICLE 5. MISCELLANEOUS.

 

5.1       Transfer. This Warrant may not be transferred or assigned, in whole or in part, at any time, except in compliance with applicable federal and state securities laws by the transferor and the transferee (including, without limitation, the delivery of an investment representation letter and a legal opinion reasonably satisfactory to the Company), provided that this Warrant may not be transferred or assigned such that either the Holder or any transferee will, following such transfer or assignment, hold a Warrant for the right to purchase fewer than 100,000 Shares.

 

4




5.2       Transfer Procedure.

(Each of the persons or entities in whose name any such new Warrant shall be issued is herein referred to as a Holder”).

 

5.3       Loss, Theft, Destruction or Mutilation. If this Warrant shall become mutilated or defaced or be destroyed, lost or stolen, the Company shall execute and deliver a new Warrant in exchange for and upon surrender and cancellation of such mutilated or defaced Warrant or, in lieu of and in substitution for such Warrant so destroyed, lost or stolen, upon the Holder filing with the Company evidence satisfactory to it that such Warrant has been so mutilated, defaced, destroyed, lost or stolen. However, the Company shall be entitled, as a condition to the execution and delivery of such new Warrant, to demand indemnity satisfactory to it and payment of the expenses and charges incurred in connection with the delivery of such new Warrant.
