ARTICLE X
CERTIFICATE LEGENDS
 
10.1        Legend.  Each certificate representing the Securities shall be stamped or otherwise imprinted with a legend substantially in the following form (in addition to any legend required by applicable state securities or “blue sky” laws):
 
NEITHER THE ISSUANCE AND SALE OF THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE NOR THE SECURITIES INTO WHICH THESE SECURITIES ARE EXERCISABLE HAVE BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, OR APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS.  THE SECURITIES MAY NOT BE OFFERED FOR SALE, SOLD, TRANSFERRED OR ASSIGNED (I) IN THE ABSENCE OF (A) AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT FOR THE SECURITIES UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, OR (B) AN OPINION OF COUNSEL, IN A FORM REASONABLY ACCEPTABLE TO THE COMPANY, THAT REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED UNDER SAID ACT OR (II) UNLESS SOLD PURSUANT TO RULE 144 OR RULE 144A UNDER SAID ACT.  NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, THE SECURITIES MAY BE PLEDGED IN CONNECTION WITH A BONA FIDE MARGIN ACCOUNT OR OTHER LOAN OR FINANCING ARRANGEMENT SECURED BY THE SECURITIES.

 
30

 

Prior to registration of the Warrant Shares under the Securities Act, all such certificates shall bear the restrictive legend specified in this Section 10.1.  Certificates evidencing the Warrant Shares shall not contain any legend (including the legend set forth in Section 10.1 hereof), (i) while a registration statement covering the resale of such security is effective under the Securities Act, or (ii) following any sale of such Warrant Shares pursuant to Rule 144, or (iii) if such Warrant Shares are eligible for sale under Rule 144 by the Purchaser without limitation as to volume or manner of sale, or (iv) if such legend is not required under applicable requirements of the Securities Act (including judicial interpretations and pronouncements issued by the Staff of the Commission).  The Company shall cause its counsel to issue a legal opinion to the Company’s transfer agent promptly after the effective date of a registration statement covering such Warrant Shares, if required by the Company’s transfer agent, to effect the removal of the legend hereunder.  If all or any portion of the Warrant is exercised at a time when there is an effective registration statement to cover the resale of the Warrant Shares, such Warrant Shares shall be issued free of all legends.  The Company agrees that following the effective date of the registration statement covering Warrant Shares or at such time as such legend is no longer required under this Section 10.1, it will, no later than five (5) Trading Days following the delivery by the Purchaser to the Company or the Company’s transfer agent of a certificate representing Warrant Shares, as the case may be, issued with a restrictive legend (such date, the “Delivery Date”), deliver or cause to be delivered to the Purchaser a certificate representing such Securities that is free from all restrictive and other legends.  The Company may not make any notation on its records or give instructions to any transfer agent of the Company that enlarge the restrictions on transfer set forth in this Section. Whenever a certificate representing the Warrant Shares is required to be issued to the Purchaser without a legend, in lieu of delivering physical certificates representing the Warrant Shares, provided the Company’s transfer agent is participating in the Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) Fast Automated Securities Transfer program, the Company shall use its reasonable best efforts to cause its transfer agent to electronically transmit the Warrant Shares to the Purchaser by crediting the account of such Purchaser’s Prime Broker with DTC through its Deposit Withdrawal Agent Commission (“DWAC”) system (to the extent not inconsistent with any provisions of this Agreement).
 
10.2        Liquidated Damages.  The Company understands that a delay in the delivery of unlegended certificates for the Warrant Shares as set forth in Section 5.1 hereof beyond the Delivery Date could result in economic loss to the Purchaser.  If the Company fails to deliver to a Purchaser such shares via DWAC or a certificate or certificates pursuant to this Section hereunder by the Delivery Date, the Company shall pay to the Purchaser, in cash, as partial liquidated damages and not as a penalty, for each $1,000 of Warrant Shares (based on the closing price of the Common Stock reported by the principal Trading Market on the date such Securities are submitted to the Company’s transfer agent) subject to Section 10.1, $10 per Trading Day (increasing to $20 per Trading Day ten (10) Trading Days after such damages have begun to accrue) for each Trading Day after the Legend Removal Date until such certificate is delivered.  Nothing herein shall limit the Purchaser’s right to pursue actual damages for the Company’s failure to deliver certificates representing any Securities as required by the Transaction Documents, and the Purchaser shall have the right to pursue all remedies available to it at law or in equity including, without limitation, a decree of specific performance and/or injunctive relief.
 
10.3        Sales by the Purchaser.  The Purchaser agrees that the removal of the restrictive legend from certificates representing Securities as set forth in Section 10.1 is predicated upon the Company’s reliance that the Purchaser will sell any Securities pursuant to either the registration requirements of the Securities Act, including any applicable prospectus delivery requirements, or an exemption therefrom.

ARTICLE XI
INDEMNIFICATION

11.1        Indemnification by the Company.  The Company agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless the Purchaser and shall reimburse the Purchaser for, from and against each claim, loss, liability, cost and expense (including without limitation, interest, penalties, costs of preparation and investigation, and the actual fees, disbursements and expenses of attorneys, accountants and other professional advisors) (collectively, “Losses”) directly or indirectly relating to, resulting from or arising out of (a) any untrue representation, misrepresentation, breach of warranty or non-fulfillment of any covenant, agreement or other obligation by or of the Company contained in any Transaction Document or in any certificate, document, or instrument delivered by the Company to the Purchaser; or (b) any action instituted against the Purchaser or its affiliates, by any stockholder of the Company who is not an affiliate of the Purchaser, with respect to any of the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents (unless such action is based upon a breach of the Purchaser’s representations, warranties or covenants under the Transaction Documents or any agreements or understandings the Purchaser may have with any such stockholder or any violations by the Purchaser of state or federal securities laws or any conduct by the Purchaser which constitutes fraud, gross negligence, willful misconduct or malfeasance).
 
11.2        Procedure.
 
(a)            The indemnified party shall promptly notify the indemnifying party of any claim, demand, action or proceeding for which indemnification will be sought under this Agreement; provided, that the failure of any party entitled to indemnification hereunder to give notice as provided herein shall not relieve the indemnifying party of its obligations under this Article XI except to the extent that the indemnifying party is actually prejudiced by such failure to give notice.
 
(b)            In case any such action, proceeding or claim is brought against an indemnified party in respect of which indemnification is sought hereunder, the indemnifying party shall be entitled to participate in and, unless in the reasonable, good-faith judgment of the indemnified party a conflict of interest between it and the indemnifying party exists with respect to such action, proceeding or claim (in which case the indemnifying party shall be responsible for the reasonable fees and expenses of one separate counsel for the indemnified party), to assume the defense thereof with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the indemnified party. If the indemnifying party elects to defend any such action or claim, then the indemnified party shall be entitled to participate in such defense (but not control) with counsel of its choice at its sole cost and expense (except that the indemnifying party shall remain responsible for the reasonable fees and expenses of one separate counsel for the indemnified party in the event in the reasonable, good-faith judgment of the indemnified party a conflict of interest between it and the indemnifying party exists).
 
(c)            In the event that the indemnifying party advises an indemnified party that it will contest such a claim for indemnification hereunder, or fails, within thirty (30) days of receipt of any indemnification notice to notify, in writing, such person of its election to defend, settle or compromise, at its sole cost and expense, any action, proceeding or claim (or discontinues its defense at any time after it commences such defense), then the indemnified party may, at its option, defend, settle or otherwise compromise or pay such action or claim.  In any event, unless and until the indemnifying party elects in writing to assume and does so assume the defense of any such claim, proceeding or action, the indemnified party’s costs and expenses arising out of the defense, settlement or compromise of any such action, claim or proceeding shall be Losses subject to indemnification hereunder.

 
32

 
 
(d)            The parties shall cooperate fully with each other in connection with any negotiation or defense of any such action or claim and shall furnish to the other party all information reasonably available to such party which relates to such action or claim.  Each party shall keep the other party fully apprised at all times as to the status of the defense or any settlement negotiations with respect thereto.
 
(e)            Notwithstanding anything in this Article XI to the contrary, the indemnifying party shall not, without the indemnified party’s prior written consent, settle or compromise any claim or consent to entry of any judgment in respect thereof which imposes any future obligation on the indemnified party or which does not include, as an unconditional term thereof, the giving by the claimant or the plaintiff to the indemnified party of a release from all liability in respect of such claim.  The indemnification obligations to defend the indemnified party required by this Article XI shall be made by periodic payments of the amount thereof during the course of investigation or defense, as and when the Loss is incurred, so long as the indemnified party shall refund such moneys if it is ultimately determined by a court of competent jurisdiction that such party was not entitled to indemnification.  The indemnity agreements contained herein shall be in addition to (i) any cause of action or similar rights of the indemnified party against the indemnifying party or others, and (ii) any liabilities the indemnifying party may be subject to pursuant to the law.
 
11.3       Reimbursement. If any Purchaser becomes involved in any capacity in any Proceeding by or against any Person who is a stockholder of the Company (except as a result of sales, pledges, margin sales and similar transactions by such Purchaser to or with any other stockholder), solely as a result of such Purchaser's acquisition of the Securities from the Company under this Agreement, the Company will reimburse such Purchaser for its reasonable legal and other expenses (including the cost of any investigation preparation and travel in connection therewith) incurred in connection therewith, as such expenses are incurred. The reimbursement obligations of the Company under this paragraph shall be in addition to any liability which the Company may otherwise have, shall extend upon the same terms and conditions to any Affiliates of the Purchasers who are actually named in such action, proceeding or investigation, and partners, directors, agents, employees and controlling persons (if any), as the case may be, of the Purchasers and any such Affiliate, and shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of any successors, assigns, heirs and personal representatives of the Company, the Purchasers and any such Affiliate and any such Person. The Company also agrees that neither the Purchasers nor any such Affiliates, partners, directors, agents, employees or controlling persons shall have any liability to the Company or any Person asserting claims on behalf of or in right of the Company solely as a result of acquiring the Securities under this Agreement.
