If Holder does not exercise its rights during such fifteen (15) day period, all rights under the Warrant shall terminate and the Warrant shall be of no further force and effect. The Issuer, to the extent feasible, shall provide the Holder with thirty (30) days’ notice of the consummation of any Change of Control.

"Parent" shall mean any corporation (other than the Acquiring Person) in an unbroken chain of corporations ending with the Acquiring Person, provided each corporation in the unbroken chain (other than the Acquiring Person) owns, at the time of the determination, stock possessing fifty percent (50%) or more of the total combined voting power of all classes of stock in one of the other corporations in such chain. "Subsidiary" shall mean any corporation at least 50% of whose outstanding voting stock shall at the time be owned directly or indirectly by the Acquiring Person or by one or more Subsidiaries.

10.   Miscellaneous.
10.1 This Warrant shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the internal laws of the State of New York (including Sections 5-1401 and 5-1402 of the New York General Obligation Law), and the Issuer hereby submits to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of any state or federal court in the Southern District of New York and any court hearing any appeal therefrom, over any suit, action or proceeding against it arising out of or based upon this Warrant (a "Related Proceeding"). The Issuer hereby waives any objection to any Related Proceeding in such courts whether on the grounds of venue, residence or domicile or on the ground that the Related Proceeding has been brought in an inconvenient forum.
10.2 Any and all remedies set forth in this Warrant: (i) shall be in addition to any and all other remedies the Holder or the Issuer may have at law or in equity, (ii) shall be cumulative, and (iii) may be pursued successively or concurrently as each of Holder and the Issuer may elect. The exercise of any remedy by the Holder or the Issuer shall not be deemed an election of remedies or preclude the Holder or the Issuer, respectively, from exercising any other remedies in the future.
10.3 For purposes of this Warrant, except as otherwise expressly provided or unless the context otherwise requires: (i) the terms defined in this Warrant have the meanings assigned to them in this Warrant and include the plural as well as the singular, and the use of any gender herein shall be deemed to include the other gender and neuter gender of such term; (ii) accounting terms not otherwise defined herein have the meanings assigned to them in accordance with U.S. GAAP; (iii) references herein to "Articles", "Sections", "Subsections", "Paragraphs" and other subdivisions without reference to a document are to designated Articles, Sections, Subsections, Paragraphs and other subdivisions of this Warrant, unless the context shall otherwise require; (iv) a reference to a Subsection without further reference to a Section is a reference to such Subsection as contained in the same Section in which the reference appears, and this rule shall also apply to Paragraphs and other subdivisions; (v) the words "herein", "hereof", "hereunder" and other words of similar import refer to this Agreement as a whole and not to any particular provision; (vi) the term "include" or "including" shall mean without limitation; (vii) any agreement, instrument or statute defined or referred to herein means such agreement, instrument or statute as from time to time amended, modified or supplemented, including (in the case of agreements or instruments) by waiver or consent and (in the case of statutes) by succession of comparable successor statues and references to all attachments thereto and instruments incorporated therein; and (viii) references to a Person are also to its permitted successors and assigns and, in the case of an individual, to his or her heirs and estate, as applicable.

10.4 If any term or other provision of this Warrant is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced by any rule of law or public policy all other conditions and provisions of this Warrant shall nevertheless remain in full force and effect. If the final judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction or other authority declares that any term or provision hereof is invalid, void or unenforceable, the undersigned agrees that the court making such determination shall have the power to reduce the scope, duration, area or applicability of the term or provision, to delete specific words or phrases, or to replace any invalid, void or unenforceable term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision. Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced, the Issuer shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Warrant so as to effect the original intent of the parties as closely as possible in a mutually acceptable manner in order that the transactions contemplated hereby be consummated as originally contemplated to the fullest extent possible.
10.5 All dollar ($) amounts set forth herein refer to United States dollars. All payments hereunder and thereunder will be made in lawful currency of the United States of America.
10.6 The Issuer may not assign its obligations under this Warrant other than by operation of law or in connection with a merger or sale of all or substantially all of the Issuer's assets or stock or a Change in Control of the Issuer. Subject to the terms hereof, Holder may assign, pledge, hypothecate or transfer any of the rights and associated obligations contemplated by this Warrant, in whole or in part, at its sole discretion (including, but not limited to, assignments, pledges, hypothecations and transfers in connection with hedging transactions with respect to this Warrant).
10.7 Under the Subscription Agreement, the Issuer is only required to use its best efforts to cause a registration statement covering the issuance of the Registrable Securities to be declared effective, and once effective, only to use its best efforts to maintain the effectiveness of the registration statement. The Issuer will not be obligated to deliver any Registrable Securities, and there are no contractual penalties for failure to deliver any such securities, if a registration statement is not effective at the time of exercise. The failure or inability of the Issuer to maintain the effectiveness of such registration statement shall not in any way prevent the expiration of this Warrant at the end of the Warrant Term.

Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if a Holder upon any Warrant exercise does not consent to accept unregistered Common Stock in lieu of Registered Common Stock (as defined in the Issuer’s Certificate of Rights and Preferences of Series A-1 Cumulative Convertible Preferred Stock, as amended), then such Holder’s Warrant Notice shall be deemed, without any further action, to have been withdrawn. Moreover, in no event is the Issuer obligated to settle any Warrant exercise, in whole or in part, for cash.

This Warrant shall not be valid unless signed by the Issuer.
