NOW THEREFORE, the Company and the Buyer hereby agree as follows:

 

  1. PURCHASE OF COMMON STOCK.

 

Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, the Company has the right to sell to the Buyer, and the Buyer has the obligation to purchase from the Company, Purchase Shares as follows:

 

(a) Commencement of Purchase of Common Stock.  On the Commencement Date, the Company shall issue the Purchase Shares to Buyer, consisting of ________ shares of Common Stock and the Warrants. On the Purchase Date, Buyer shall pay to the Company in exchange for the Purchase Shares, the purchase price of $____________ (the “Purchase Price”), via wire transfer, according to the wiring instructions attached hereto as Exhibit C, provided, however, that if Buyer exercises its rights to purchase the Common Stock underlying the Warrants, then Buyer shall pay the purchase price for such exercise to the Company in accordance with the terms of the Warrants. All payments made under this Agreement shall be made in lawful money of the United States of America. Upon issuance, the Purchase Shares shall be validly issued and fully paid and non-assessable.

 

(b) [Intentionally Omitted.]

 

(c) [Intentionally Omitted.]

 

(d) [Intentionally Omitted.]

 

(e) [Intentionally Omitted.]

 

(f) Records of Purchases. The Buyer and the Company shall each maintain records showing the purchase of the Purchase Shares.

 

(g) Taxes. The Company shall pay any and all transfer, stamp or similar taxes that may be payable with respect to the issuance and delivery of any shares of Common Stock to the Buyer made under this Agreement.

 

(h) Compliance with Principal Market Rules. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, and in addition to the limitations set forth in Section 1(e), the total number of shares of Common Stock that may be issued under this Agreement, shall be limited to 19.99% of the Company’s outstanding shares of Common Stock as of the date hereof (the “Exchange Cap”), unless stockholder approval is obtained to issue more than such 19.99% if required under the last sentence of paragraph (h). The Exchange Cap shall be appropriately adjusted for any reorganization, recapitalization, non-cash dividend, stock split, reverse stock split or other similar transaction. The Company must obtain stockholder approval to issue more than 19.99% of its outstanding shares of Common Stock hereunder if such issuance would require stockholder approval under the rules or regulations of the Principal Market.

(i) Beneficial Ownership Limitation. The Company shall not issue, and the Buyer shall not purchase any shares of Common Stock under this Agreement, if such shares proposed to be issued and sold, when aggregated with all other shares of Common Stock then owned beneficially (as calculated pursuant to Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “1934 Act”) and Rule 13d-3 promulgated thereunder) by the Buyer and its affiliates would result in the beneficial ownership by the Buyer and its affiliates of more than 9.99% of the then issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock of the Company.

 

(j) Right of First Refusal: If at any time while during the two calendar week period after the Commencement Date, the Company has a bona fide offer of capital or financing from any 3rd party, pursuant to which shares of the Company’s common stock are to be issued in connection with the Shelf Registration Statement, that the Company intends to act upon, then the Company must first offer such opportunity to the Buyer to provide such capital or financing to the Company on the same terms as each respective 3rd party’s terms, unless such opportunity would require the Company to seek stockholder approval due to the Exchange Cap. Should the Buyer be unwilling or unable to provide such capital or financing to the Company within 2 trading days from Buyer’s receipt of written notice of the offer (the “Offer Notice”) from the Company, then the Company may obtain such capital or financing from that respective 3rd party upon the exact same terms and conditions offered by the Company to the Buyer, which transaction must be completed within 7 days after the date of the Offer Notice. If the Company does not receive the capital or financing from the respective 3rd party within 7 days after the date of the respective Offer Notice, then the Company must again offer the capital or financing opportunity to the Buyer as described above, and the process detailed above shall be repeated. The Offer Notice must be sent via electronic mail to ____________.
