1              ACCOUNTING AND OTHER TERMS

 

Accounting terms not defined in this Agreement shall be construed in accordance with GAAP.  Calculations and determinations must be made in accordance with GAAP.  Capitalized terms not otherwise defined in this Agreement shall have the meanings set forth in Section 15.  All other terms contained in this Agreement, unless otherwise indicated, shall have the meaning provided by the Code to the extent such terms are defined therein.  All headings numbered without a decimal point are herein referred to as “Articles,” and all paragraphs numbered with a decimal point (and all subparagraphs or subsections thereof) are herein referred to as “Sections.”

 

2              CREDIT FACILITIES AND TERMS

 

2.1          Promise to Pay.  Borrower hereby unconditionally promises to pay to each Lender in accordance with each Lender’s respective Pro Rata Share of each Credit Facility, the outstanding principal amount of all Credit Extensions made by the Lenders under such Credit Facility and accrued and unpaid interest thereon and any other amounts due hereunder as and when due in accordance with this Agreement.

 

2.2          Credit Facilities.  Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, each Lender, severally, but not jointly, agrees to make available to Borrower Credit Extensions in respect of each Credit Facility set forth opposite such Lender’s name on the Credit Facility Schedule, in each case not to exceed such Lender’s commitment as identified on the Credit Facility Schedule (such commitment of each Lender, as it may be amended to reflect assignments made in accordance with this Agreement or terminated or reduced in accordance with this Agreement, its “Applicable Commitment”, and the aggregate of all such commitments, the “Applicable Commitments”).

 

2.3          Term Credit Facilities.

 

(a)           Nature of Credit Facility; Credit Extension Requests.  For any Credit Facility identified on the Credit Facility Schedule as a term facility (a “Term Credit Facility”), Credit Extensions in respect of a Term Credit Facility may be requested by Borrower during the Draw Period for such Term Credit Facility.  For any Credit Extension requested under a Term Credit Facility other than on the Closing Date, Agent must receive the completed Credit Extension Form by 12:00 noon (New York time) fifteen (15) Business Days prior to the date of the Credit Extension is to be funded.   To the extent any Term Credit Facility proceeds are repaid for any reason, whether voluntarily or involuntarily (including repayments from insurance or condemnation proceeds), Agent and Lenders shall have no obligation to re-advance such sums to Borrower.

 

(b)           Principal Payments.  Principal payable on account of a Term Credit Facility shall be payable by Borrower to each Lender in accordance with each Lender’s respective Pro Rata Share immediately upon the earliest of (i) the date(s) set forth in the Amortization Schedule for such Term Credit Facility, or (ii) the Maturity Date. Except as this Agreement may specifically provide otherwise, all prepayments of Credit Extensions under Term Credit Facilities shall be applied by Agent to the applicable Term Credit Facility in inverse order of maturity.  The monthly payments required under the Amortization Schedule shall continue in the same amount (for so long as the applicable Term Credit Facility shall

 

1



 

remain outstanding) notwithstanding any partial prepayment, whether mandatory or optional, of the applicable Term Credit Facility.

 

(c)           Mandatory Prepayment.  If a Term Credit Facility is accelerated following the occurrence of an Event of Default, Borrower shall immediately pay to Agent, for payment to each Lender in accordance with its respective Pro Rata Share, an amount equal to the sum of: (i) all outstanding principal of the Term Credit Facility and all other Obligations, plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon, (ii) any fees payable under the Fee Letters by reason of such prepayment, (iii) the Applicable Prepayment Fee as specified in the Credit Facility Schedule for the Credit Facility being prepaid, and (iv) all other sums that shall have become due and payable, including Protective Advances.  Additionally, at the election of Agent (or at the direction of the Required Lenders), Borrower shall prepay the Term Credit Facilities (to be allocated pro rata among the outstanding Credit Extensions under all Term Credit Facilities) in the following amounts:  (A) on the date on which any Credit Party (or Agent as loss payee or assignee) receives any casualty proceeds in excess of Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($500,000) for real or personal property, in respect of assets upon which Agent maintained a Lien, an amount equal to one hundred percent (100%) of such proceeds (net of out-of-pocket expenses and, in the case of personal property, repayment of any permitted purchase money debt or permitted capital lease encumbering the personal property that suffered such casualty), or such lesser portion of such proceeds as Agent shall elect to apply to the Obligations; and (B) upon receipt by any Credit Party of the proceeds of any asset disposition of personal property not made in the Ordinary Course of Business (other than transfers permitted by Section 7.1) an amount equal to one hundred percent (100%) of the net cash proceeds of such asset disposition (net of out-of-pocket fees and expenses and repayment of any permitted purchase money debt or permitted capital lease encumbering such asset), or such lesser portion as Agent shall elect to apply to the Obligations.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, (a) so long as no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Borrower shall have the option of applying the proceeds of any casualty policy up to $500,000 in the aggregate with respect to any property loss in any one year, toward the replacement or repair of destroyed or damaged property; provided that any such replaced or repaired property (x) shall be of equal or like value as the replaced or repaired Collateral and (y) shall be deemed Collateral in which Agent and Lenders have been granted a first priority security interest, and (b) after the occurrence and during the continuance of a Default or Event of Default, all proceeds payable under such casualty policy shall, at the option of Agent (or at the direction of the Required Lenders), be payable to Agent, for the ratable benefit of the Lenders, on account of the Obligations.

 

(d)           Permitted Prepayment.   Except as provided below, Borrower shall have no right to prepay the Credit Extensions made in respect of a Term Credit Facility.  After the Closed Period, if any, for the applicable Term Credit Facility as specified in the Credit Facility Schedule, Borrower shall have the option to prepay the Prepayable Amount (as defined below) of a Term Credit Facility advanced by the Lenders under this Agreement, provided Borrower (i) provides written notice to Agent of its election to prepay the Prepayable Amount at least fifteen (15) days prior to such prepayment, and (ii) pays to Agent, for payment to each Lender in accordance with its respective Pro Rata Share, on the date of such prepayment, an amount equal to the sum of (A) the Prepayable Amount plus accrued interest thereon, (B) any fees payable under the Fee Letters by reason of such prepayment, (C) the Applicable Prepayment Fee as specified in the Credit Facility Schedule for the Credit Facility being prepaid, and (D) all Protective Advances.  The term “Prepayable Amount” means all or any portion, as selected by Borrower, of the Credit Extensions under the applicable Term Credit Facility.

 

2.4          Reserved.

 

2.5          Reserved.

 

2.6          Interest and Payments; Administration.

 

(a)           Interest; Computation of Interest.  Each Credit Extension shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof from the date when made until paid in full at a rate per annum equal to the Applicable Interest Rate.  Each Lender may, upon the failure of Borrower to pay any fees or interest as required herein, capitalize such interest and fees and begin to accrue interest thereon until paid in full, which such interest shall be at a rate per annum equal to the Applicable Interest Rate unless and until the Default Rate shall otherwise apply.  All other Obligations shall bear interest on the outstanding amount thereof from the date they first become payable by Borrower under the Financing Documents until paid in full at a rate per annum equal to the Applicable Interest Rate unless and until the Default Rate shall otherwise apply.  Interest on the Credit Extensions and all fees payable under the Financing Documents shall be computed on the basis of a 360-day year and the actual number of days elapsed in the period during which such interest accrues.  In computing interest on any Credit Extension or other advance, the date of the making of such Credit Extension or advance shall be included and the date of payment shall be excluded; provided, however, that if any Credit Extension or advance is repaid on the same day

 

2



 

on which it is made, such day shall be included in computing interest on such Credit Extension or advance.  Agent shall determine (which determination shall, absent manifest error in calculation, be final, conclusive and binding upon all parties) the interest rate that shall apply to the Credit Extensions.

 

(b)           Default Rate. Upon the election of Agent following the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Obligations shall bear interest at a rate per annum which is five hundred basis points (5.00%) above the rate that is otherwise applicable thereto (the “Default Rate”).  Payment or acceptance of the increased interest rate provided in this subsection is not a permitted alternative to timely payment and shall not constitute a waiver of any Event of Default or otherwise prejudice or limit any rights or remedies of Agent or Lenders.

 

(c)           Payments Generally.  Except as otherwise provided in this Section 2.6(c), all payments in respect of the Obligations shall be made to Agent for the account of the applicable Lenders in accordance with their Pro Rata Share.  Payments of principal and interest in respect of any Credit Facility identified on the Credit Facility Schedule as “Term” shall be made to each applicable Lender.  All Obligations are payable upon demand of Agent in the absence of any other due date specified herein.  All fees payable under the Financing Documents shall be deemed non-refundable as of the date paid.  Any payment required to be made to Agent or a Lender under this Agreement may be made by debit or automated clearing house payment initiated by Agent or such Lender from any of Borrower’s deposit accounts, including the Designated Funding Account, and Borrower hereby authorizes Agent and each Lender to debit any such accounts for any amounts Borrower owes hereunder when due.  Without limiting the foregoing, Borrower shall tender to Agent and Lenders any authorization forms as Agent or any Lender may reasonably require to implement such debit or automated clearing house payment.  These debits or automated clearing house payments shall not constitute a set-off. Payments of principal and/or interest received after 12:00 noon New York time are considered received at the opening of business on the next Business Day.  When a payment is due on a day that is not a Business Day, the payment is due the next Business Day and additional fees or interest, as applicable, shall continue to accrue until paid. All payments to be made by Borrower under any Financing Document shall be made without set-off, recoupment or counterclaim, in lawful money of the United States and in immediately available funds.  The balance of the Obligations, as recorded in Agent’s books and records at any time, shall be conclusive and binding evidence of the amounts due and owing to Agent and Lenders by each Borrower absent manifest error; provided, however, that any failure to so record or any error in so recording shall not limit or otherwise affect any Borrower’s duty to pay all amounts owing hereunder or under any Financing Document.  Agent shall endeavor to provide Borrower with a monthly statement regarding the Credit Extensions (but neither Agent nor any Lender shall have any liability if Agent shall fail to provide any such statement).  Unless Borrower notifies Agent of any objection to any such statement (specifically describing the basis for such objection) within ninety (90) days after the date of receipt thereof, it shall be deemed final, binding and conclusive upon Borrower in all respects as to all matters reflected therein.

 

(d)           Interest Payments; Maturity Date.  Commencing on the first (1st) Payment Date following the funding of a Credit Extension, and continuing on the Payment Date of each successive month thereafter through and including the Maturity Date, Borrower shall make monthly payments of interest, in arrears, calculated as set forth in this Section 2.6.  All unpaid principal and accrued interest is due and payable in full on the Maturity Date or any earlier date specified herein.  If the Obligations are not paid in full on or before the Maturity Date, all interest thereafter accruing shall be payable immediately upon accrual.

 

(e)           Fees.  Borrower shall pay, as and when due and payable under the terms of the Fee Letters, to Agent and each Lender, for their own accounts and not for the benefit of any other Lenders, the fees set forth in the Fee Letters.

 

(f)            Protective Advances.  Borrower shall pay to Agent for the account of Lenders all Protective Advances (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses for documentation and negotiation of this Agreement, the Warrants and the other Financing Documents) when due under any Financing Document (and in the absence of any other due date specified herein, such Protective Advances shall be due upon demand).

 

(g)           Maximum Lawful Rate.  In no event shall the interest charged hereunder with respect to the Obligations exceed the maximum amount permitted under the Laws of the State of Maryland.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in any Financing Document, if at any time the rate of interest payable hereunder (the “Stated Rate”) would exceed the highest rate of interest permitted under any applicable Law to be charged (the “Maximum Lawful Rate”), then for so long as the Maximum Lawful Rate would be so exceeded, the rate of interest payable shall be equal to the Maximum Lawful Rate; provided, however, that if at any time thereafter the Stated Rate is less than the Maximum Lawful Rate,

 

3



 

Borrower shall, to the extent permitted by Law, continue to pay interest at the Maximum Lawful Rate until such time as the total interest received is equal to the total interest which would have been received had the Stated Rate been (but for the operation of this provision) the interest rate payable.  Thereafter, the interest rate payable shall be the Stated Rate unless and until the Stated Rate again would exceed the Maximum Lawful Rate, in which event this provision shall again apply.  In no event shall the total interest received by any Lender exceed the amount which it could lawfully have received, had the interest been calculated for the full term hereof at the Maximum Lawful Rate.  If, notwithstanding the prior sentence, any Lender has received interest hereunder in excess of the Maximum Lawful Rate, such excess amount shall be applied to the reduction of the principal balance of such Lender’s Credit Extensions or to other amounts (other than interest) payable hereunder, and if no such Credit Extensions or other amounts are then outstanding, such excess or part thereof remaining shall be paid to Borrower.  In computing interest payable with reference to the Maximum Lawful Rate applicable to any Lender, such interest shall be calculated at a daily rate equal to the Maximum Lawful Rate divided by the number of days in the year in which such calculation is made.

 

(h)           Taxes; Additional Costs.

 

(i)            All payments of principal and interest on the Obligations and all other amounts payable hereunder shall be made free and clear of and without deduction for any present or future income, excise, stamp, documentary, payroll, employment, property or franchise taxes and other taxes, fees, duties, levies, assessments, withholdings or other charges of any nature whatsoever (including interest and penalties thereon) imposed by any taxing authority, excluding taxes imposed on or measured by Agent’s or any Lender’s net income, franchise taxes, and branch profits taxes, in each case, imposed by the jurisdictions under which Agent or such Lender is organized or conducts business (other than solely as the result of entering into any of the Financing Documents or taking any action thereunder) (all non-excluded items being called “Taxes”).  If any withholding or deduction from any payment to be made by any Borrower hereunder is required in respect of any Taxes pursuant to any applicable Law, then Borrower will: (i) pay directly to the relevant authority the full amount required to be so withheld or deducted; (ii) promptly forward to Agent an official receipt or other documentation satisfactory to Agent (or Borrower, as the case may be) evidencing such payment to such authority; and (iii) pay to Agent for the account of Agent and Lenders such additional amount or amounts as is necessary to ensure that the net amount actually received by Agent and each Lender will equal the full amount Agent and such Lender would have received had no such withholding or deduction for Taxes been required.  If any Taxes are directly asserted against Agent or any Lender with respect to any payment received by Agent or such Lender hereunder, Agent or such Lender may timely pay such Taxes and Borrower will promptly pay such additional amounts (including any penalty, interest or expense) as is necessary in order that the net amount received by such Person after the payment of such Taxes (including any Taxes on such additional amount) shall equal the amount such Person would have received had such Taxes not been asserted so long as such amounts have accrued on or after the day which is two hundred seventy (270) days prior to the date on which Agent or such Lender first made written demand therefor.

 

(ii)           If any Borrower fails to pay under this subsection (h) any Taxes when due to the appropriate taxing authority or fails to remit to Agent, for the account of Agent and the respective Lenders, the required receipts or other required documentary evidence, Borrower shall indemnify Agent and Lenders for any incremental Taxes, interest or penalties that may become payable by Agent or any Lender as a result of any such failure.

 

(iii)          Each Lender that is organized under the laws of a jurisdiction other than the United States, a state thereof, or the District of Columbia (such Lender a “Foreign Lender”) shall execute and deliver to each of Borrower and Agent, on or prior to the date on which such Lender becomes a party hereto or purports to become an assignee of an interest as a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter as required by applicable law or upon the reasonable request of Borrower or Agent), one or more (as Borrower or Agent may reasonably request) United States Internal Revenue Service Forms W-8ECI, W-8BEN, W-8BEN-E, W-8IMY (as applicable) and other applicable forms, certificates or documents prescribed by the United States Internal Revenue Service or reasonably requested by Borrower or Agent certifying as to such Lender’s entitlement to a complete exemption from withholding or deduction of Taxes.  Borrower shall not be required to pay additional amounts to any Lender pursuant to this subsection (h) with respect to United States withholding and income Taxes to the extent that the obligation to pay such additional amounts would not have arisen but for the failure of such Lender to comply with this paragraph other than a failure due to such Lender being unable to comply with this paragraph as a result of a change in law.

 

(iv)          Each Lender that is not a Foreign Lender shall execute and deliver to each of Borrower and Agent, on or prior to the date on which such Lender becomes a party hereto or purports to become an assignee of an interest

 

4



 

as a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter as required by applicable law or upon the reasonable request of Borrower or Agent), one or more (as Borrower or Agent may reasonably request) United States Internal Revenue Service Forms W-9 and other applicable forms, certificates or documents prescribed by the United States Internal Revenue Service or reasonably requested by Borrower or Agent certifying as to such Lender’s entitlement to a complete exemption from withholding or deduction of Taxes.  Borrower shall not be required to pay additional amounts to any Lender pursuant to this subsection (h) with respect to United States withholding and income Taxes to the extent that the obligation to pay such additional amounts would not have arisen but for the failure of such Lender to comply with this paragraph, other than a failure due to such Lender being unable to comply with this paragraph as a result of a change in law.

 

(v)           If a payment made to a Lender under any Financing Document would be subject to United States federal withholding tax imposed by FATCA if such Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Internal Revenue Code, as applicable), such Lender shall deliver to Borrower and Agent at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by Borrower or Agent such documentation prescribed by applicable law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Internal Revenue Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by Borrower or Agent as may be necessary for Borrower and Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine that such Lender has complied with such Lender’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment.  For purposes of the preceding sentence, “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement. Borrower shall not be required to pay additional amounts to any Lender pursuant to this subsection (h) with respect to United States withholding taxes imposed by FATCA.

 

(vi)          If any Lender shall determine in its commercially reasonable judgment that the adoption or taking effect of, or any change in, any applicable Law regarding capital adequacy, in each instance, after the Closing Date, or any change after the Closing Date in the interpretation, administration or application thereof by any Governmental Authority, central bank or comparable agency charged with the interpretation, administration or application thereof, or the compliance by any Lender or any Person controlling such Lender with any request, guideline or directive regarding capital adequacy (whether or not having the force of law) of any such Governmental Authority, central bank or comparable agency adopted or otherwise taking effect after the Closing Date, has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s or such controlling Person’s capital as a consequence of such Lender’s obligations hereunder to a level below that which such Lender or such controlling Person could have achieved but for such adoption, taking effect, change, interpretation, administration, application or compliance (taking into consideration such Lender’s or such controlling Person’s policies with respect to capital adequacy) then from time to time, upon written demand by such Lender (which demand shall be accompanied by a statement setting forth the basis for such demand and a calculation of the amount thereof in reasonable detail, a copy of which shall be furnished to Agent), Borrower shall promptly pay to such Lender such additional amount as will compensate such Lender or such controlling Person for such reduction, so long as such amounts have accrued on or after the day which is two hundred seventy (270) days prior to the date on which such Lender first made demand therefor; provided, however, that notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, (A) the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and all requests, rules, guidelines or directives thereunder or issued in connection therewith and (B) all requests, rules, guidelines or directives promulgated by the Bank for International Settlements, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (or any successor or similar authority) or the United States or foreign regulatory authorities, in each case pursuant to Basel III, shall in each case be deemed to be a “change in applicable Law”, regardless of the date enacted, adopted or issued.

 

(vii)         If any Lender requires compensation under this subsection (h), or requires any Borrower to pay any additional amount to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to this subsection (h), then, upon the written request of Borrower, such Lender shall use reasonable efforts to designate a different lending office for funding or booking its Credit Extensions hereunder or to assign its rights and obligations hereunder (subject to the terms of this Agreement) to another of its offices, branches or affiliates, if, in the judgment of such Lender, such designation or assignment (A) would eliminate or materially reduce amounts payable pursuant to any such subsection, as the case may be, in the future, and (B) would not subject such Lender to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be materially disadvantageous to such Lender (as determined in its sole discretion).  Borrower hereby agrees to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Lender in connection with any such designation or assignment.

(i)            Administrative Fees and Charges.

 

(i)            Borrower shall pay to Agent, for its own account and not for the benefit of any other Lenders, all reasonable fees and expenses in connection with audits and inspections of the books and records of the Credit Parties, audits, valuations or appraisals of the Collateral, audits of Borrower’s compliance with applicable Laws and such other matters as Agent shall deem appropriate, which shall be due and payable on the first Business Day of the month following the date of issuance by Agent of a written request for payment thereof to any Borrower; provided, that, as long as no Default has occurred within the preceding twelve (12) months, Agent shall be entitled to such reimbursement for no more than one audit, valuation, appraisal and inspection per calendar year.

 

(ii)           If payments of principal or interest due on the Obligations, or any other amounts due hereunder or under the other Financing Documents, are not timely made and remain overdue for a period of five (5) days, Borrower, without notice or demand by Agent, promptly shall pay to Agent, for its own account and not for the benefit of any other Lenders, as additional compensation to Agent in administering the Obligations, an amount equal to five percent (5.0%) of each delinquent payment.

 

2.7          Secured Promissory Notes.  At the election of any Lender made as to each Credit Facility for which it has made Credit Extensions, each Credit Facility shall be evidenced by one or more secured promissory notes in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Agent and Lenders (each a “Secured Promissory Note”).  Upon receipt of an affidavit of an officer of and reasonable and customary indemnification by a Lender as to the loss, theft, destruction, or mutilation of its Secured Promissory Note, Borrower shall issue, in lieu thereof, a replacement Secured Promissory Note in the same principal amount thereof and of like tenor.

 

3              CONDITIONS OF CREDIT EXTENSIONS

 

3.1          Conditions Precedent to Initial Credit Extension.  Each Lender’s obligation to make the initial advance in respect of a Credit Facility is subject to the condition precedent that Agent shall consent to or shall have received, in form and substance satisfactory to Agent, such documents, and completion of such other matters, as Agent may reasonably deem necessary or appropriate, including, without limitation, all items listed on the Closing Deliveries Schedule attached hereto.

 

3.2          Conditions Precedent to all Credit Extensions.  The obligation of each Lender to make each Credit Extension, including the initial Credit Extension, is subject to the following conditions precedent:

(b)           timely receipt by the Agent and each Lender of an executed Credit Extension Form in the form attached hereto;

 

(c)           (i)            for Credit Extensions made on the Closing Date, the representations and warranties in Article 5 and elsewhere in the Financing Documents shall be true, correct and complete in all respects on the Closing Date; provided, however, that those representations and warranties expressly referring to a specific date shall be true, correct and complete in all respects as of such date; and

 

(ii)           for Credit Extensions made after the Closing Date, if any, the representations and warranties in Article 5 and elsewhere in the Financing Documents shall be true, correct and complete in all material respects on the date of the Credit Extension Form and on the Funding Date of each Credit Extension; provided, however, that such materiality qualifier shall not be applicable to any representations and warranties that already are qualified or modified by materiality in the text thereof; and provided, further that those representations and warranties expressly referring to a specific date shall be true, accurate and complete in all material respects as of such date.  Each Credit Extension is Borrower’s representation and warranty on that date that the representations and warranties in Article 5 and elsewhere in the Financing Documents remain true, accurate and complete in all material respects; provided, however, that such materiality qualifier shall not be applicable to any representations and warranties that already are qualified or modified by materiality in the text thereof; and provided, further that those representations and warranties expressly referring to a specific date shall be true, accurate and complete in all material respects as of such date;

(d)           no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing or result from the Credit Extension;

 

(e)           Agent shall be satisfied with the results of any searches conducted under Section 3.5;

 

(f)            receipt by Agent of such evidence as Agent shall reasonably request to confirm that the deliveries made in Section 3.1 remain current, accurate and in full force and effect, or if not, updates thereto, each in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Agent (and, in each case, except items where the Closing Deliveries Schedule specifically states that such items are “(Required for initial Credit Extension)”); and

 

(g)           as determined in such Lender’s reasonable discretion, there has not been any Material Adverse Change or any material adverse deviation by Borrower from the most recent board approved financial plan of Borrower provided to Agent and Lenders pursuant to Section 6.2(a)(iii).

 

3.3          Method of Borrowing.  Each Credit Extension in respect of each Credit Facility shall be in an amount at least equal to the applicable Minimum Credit Extension Amount for such Credit Facility as set forth in the Credit Facility Schedule or such lesser amount as shall remain undisbursed under the Applicable Commitments for such Credit Facility.  The date of funding for any requested Credit Extension shall be a Business Day.  To obtain a Credit Extension, Borrower shall deliver to Agent a completed Credit Extension Form executed by a Responsible Officer.  Agent may rely on any notice given by a person whom Agent reasonably believes is a Responsible Officer or designee thereof. Agent and Lenders shall have no duty to verify the authenticity of any such notice.

 

3.4          Funding of Credit Facilities.  Upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth herein, each Lender, severally and not jointly, shall make available to Agent its Pro Rata Share of the requested Credit Extension, in lawful money of the United States of America in immediately available funds, prior to 11:00 a.m. (New York time) on the specified date for the Credit Extension.  Agent shall, unless it shall have determined that one of the conditions set forth in Section 3.1 or 3.2, as applicable, has not been satisfied, by 2:00 p.m. (New York time) on such day, credit the amounts received by it in like funds to Borrower by wire transfer to the Designated Funding Account (or to the account of Borrower in respect of the Obligations, if the Credit Extension is being made to pay an Obligation of Borrower). A Credit Extension made prior to the satisfaction of any conditions set forth in Section 3.1 or 3.2 shall not constitute a waiver by Agent or Lenders of Borrower’s obligation to satisfy such conditions, and any such Credit Extension made in the absence of such satisfaction shall be made in Agent’s discretion.

 

3.5          Searches.  Before the Closing Date, and thereafter (as and when determined by Agent in its reasonable discretion), Agent shall have the right to perform, all at Borrower’s expense, the searches described in clauses (a), (b), and (c) below against Borrower and any other Credit Party, the results of which are to be consistent with Borrower’s representations and warranties under this Agreement and the reasonably satisfactory results of which shall be a condition precedent to all Credit Extensions requested by Borrower:  (a) title investigations, UCC searches and fixture filings searches; (b) judgment, pending litigation, federal tax lien, personal property tax lien, and corporate and partnership tax lien searches, in each jurisdiction searched under clause (a) above; and (c) searches of applicable corporate, limited liability company, partnership and related records to confirm the continued existence, organization and good standing of the applicable Person and the exact legal name under which such Person is organized.

4.2          Representations and Covenants.

 

(a)           As of the Closing Date, Borrower has no ownership interest in any Chattel Paper, letter of credit rights, commercial tort claims, Instruments, documents or investment property (other than cash equivalents on deposit in a Collateral Account subject to a Control Agreement (to the extent required under Section 6.6) and equity interests in any Subsidiaries of Borrower disclosed on the Disclosure Schedule attached hereto).

(j)                                    A Change in Control occurs or any Credit Party or direct or indirect equity owner in a Credit Party, with the power and authority to bind such Credit Party or to consummate such Change in Control, shall enter into agreement which contemplates a Change in Control unless such agreement provides, as a condition precedent to the consummation of such agreement, for either (x) the indefeasible payment in full in cash of all Obligations or (y) the consent of Agent and Lenders;

 

(k)                                 Any Required Permit shall have been (i) revoked, rescinded, suspended, modified in an adverse manner or not renewed in the Ordinary Course of Business for a full term, or (ii) subject to any decision by a Governmental Authority that designates a hearing with respect to any applications for renewal of any of such Required Permit or that could

All cure periods provided for in this Section 10.1 shall run concurrently with any cure period provided for in any applicable Financing Documents under which the default occurred.

 

10.2                        Rights and Remedies.

 

(a)                                 Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Agent may, and at the written direction of the Required Lenders shall, without notice or demand, do any or all of the following: (i) deliver notice of the Event of Default to Borrower, (ii) by notice to any Borrower declare all Obligations immediately due and payable (but if an Event of Default described in Section 10.1(f) occurs all Obligations shall be immediately due and payable without any action by Agent or the Lenders), or (iii) by notice to any Borrower suspend or terminate the obligations, if any, of the Lenders to advance money or extend credit for Borrower’s benefit under this Agreement or under any other agreement between any Credit Party and Agent and/or the Lenders (but if an Event of Default described in Section 10.1(f) occurs all obligations, if any, of the Lenders to advance money or extend credit for Borrower’s benefit under this Agreement or under any other agreement between Borrower and Agent and/or the Lenders shall be immediately terminated without any action by Agent or the Lenders).

 

(b)                                 Without limiting the rights of Agent and Lenders set forth in Section 10.2(a) above, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Agent may, and at the written direction of the Required Lenders shall, without notice or demand, do any or all of the following:

 

(i)                                     with or without legal process, enter any premises where the Collateral may be and take possession of and remove the Collateral from the premises or store it on the premises, and foreclose upon and/or sell, lease or liquidate, the Collateral, in whole or in part;

 

(ii)                                  apply to the Obligations (A) any balances and deposits of any Credit Party that Agent or any Lender or any Affiliate of Agent or a Lender holds or controls, or (B) any amount held or controlled by Agent or any Lender or any Affiliate of Agent or a Lender owing to or for the credit or the account of any Credit Party;

 

(iii)                               settle, compromise or adjust and grant releases with respect to disputes and claims directly with Account Debtors for amounts on terms and in any order that Agent considers advisable, notify any Person owing any Credit Party money of Agent’s security interest in such funds, and verify the amount of such Account;

 

(iv)                              make any payments and do any acts it considers necessary or reasonable to protect the Collateral and/or its security interest in the Collateral.  Borrower shall assemble the Collateral if Agent requests and make it available as Agent designates.  Agent may also render any or all of the Collateral unusable at a Credit Party’s premises and may dispose of such Collateral on such premises without liability for rent or costs. Borrower grants Agent a license to enter and occupy any of its premises, without charge, to exercise any of Agent’s rights or remedies;

 

(v)                                 pay, purchase, contest, or compromise any Lien which appears to be prior or superior to its security interest and pay all expenses incurred;

 

(vi)                              ship, reclaim, recover, store, finish, maintain, repair, prepare for sale, and/or advertise for

 

23



 

sale, the Collateral.  Agent is hereby granted a non-exclusive, royalty-free license or other right to use, without charge, Borrower’s labels, patents, copyrights, mask works, rights of use of any name, trade secrets, trade names, trademarks, service marks, and advertising matter, or any similar property as it pertains to the Collateral, in completing production of, advertising for sale, and selling any Collateral (and including in such license access to all media in which any of the licensed items may be recorded or stored and to all computer software and programs used for the compilation or printout thereof) and, in connection with Agent’s exercise of its rights under this Article 10, Borrower’s rights under all licenses and all franchise agreements shall be deemed to inure to Agent for the benefit of the Lenders;

 

(vii)                           place a “hold” on any account maintained with Agent or the Lenders or any Affiliate of Agent or a Lender and/or deliver a notice of exclusive control, any entitlement order, or other directions or instructions pursuant to any Control Agreement or similar agreements providing control of any Collateral;

 

(viii)                        demand and receive possession of the Books of Borrower and the other Credit Parties; and

 

(ix)                              exercise all other rights and remedies available to Agent under the Financing Documents or at law or equity, including all remedies provided under the Code (including disposal of the Collateral pursuant to the terms thereof).

 

10.3                        Notices.  Any notice that Agent is required to give to a Credit Party under the UCC of the time and place of any public sale or the time after which any private sale or other intended disposition of the Collateral is to be made shall be deemed to constitute reasonable notice if such notice is given in accordance with this Agreement at least ten (10) days prior to such action.

 

10.4                        Protective Payments.  If any Credit Party fails to pay or perform any covenant or obligation under this Agreement or any other Financing Document, Agent may pay or perform such covenant or obligation, and all amounts so paid by Agent are Protective Advances and immediately due and payable, bearing interest at the then highest applicable rate for the Credit Facilities hereunder, and secured by the Collateral.  No such payments or performance by Agent shall be construed as an agreement to make similar payments or performance in the future or constitute Agent’s waiver of any Event of Default.

 

10.5                        Liability for Collateral No Waiver; Remedies Cumulative.  So long as Agent and the Lenders comply with reasonable banking practices regarding the safekeeping of the Collateral in the possession or under the control of Agent and the Lenders, Agent and the Lenders shall not be liable or responsible for: (a) the safekeeping of the Collateral; (b) any loss or damage to the Collateral; (c) any diminution in the value of the Collateral; or (d) any act or default of any carrier, warehouseman, bailee, or other Person.  Borrower bears all risk of loss, damage or destruction of the Collateral.  Agent’s failure, at any time or times, to require strict performance by Borrower of any provision of this Agreement or any other Financing Document shall not waive, affect, or diminish any right of Agent thereafter to demand strict performance and compliance herewith or therewith.  No waiver hereunder shall be effective unless signed by Agent and then is only effective for the specific instance and purpose for which it is given.  Agent’s rights and remedies under this Agreement and the other Financing Documents are cumulative.  Agent has all rights and remedies provided under the Code, by Law, or in equity.  Agent’s exercise of one right or remedy is not an election, and Agent’s waiver of any Event of Default is not a continuing waiver.  Agent’s delay in exercising any remedy is not a waiver, election, or acquiescence.

 

10.6                        Application of Payments and Proceeds.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, (i) Borrower, for itself and the other Credit Parties, irrevocably waives the right to direct the application of any and all payments at any time or times thereafter received by Agent from or on behalf of Borrower of all or any part of the Obligations, and, as between Borrower and the Credit Parties on the one hand and Agent and Lenders on the other, Agent shall have the continuing and exclusive right to apply and to reapply any and all payments received against the Obligations in such manner as Agent may deem advisable notwithstanding any previous application by Agent, and (ii) unless the Agent and the Lenders shall agree otherwise, the proceeds of any sale of, or other realization upon all or any part of the Collateral shall be applied: first, to the Protective Advances; second, to accrued and unpaid interest on the Obligations (including any interest which, but for the provisions of the United States Bankruptcy Code, would have accrued on such amounts); third, to the principal amount of the Obligations outstanding; and fourth, to any other indebtedness or obligations of the Credit Parties owing to Agent or any Lender under the Financing Documents.  Borrower shall remain fully liable for any deficiency.  Any balance remaining shall be delivered

 

24



 

to Borrower or to whoever may be lawfully entitled to receive such balance or as a court of competent jurisdiction may direct.  Unless the Agent and the Lenders shall agree otherwise, in carrying out the foregoing, (x) amounts received shall be applied in the numerical order provided until exhausted prior to the application to the next succeeding category, and (y) each of the Persons entitled to receive a payment in any particular category shall receive an amount equal to its pro rata share of amounts available to be applied pursuant thereto for such category.

 

10.7                        Waivers.

 

(a)                                 Except as otherwise provided for in this Agreement and to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, each Borrower waives:  (i) presentment, demand and protest, and notice of presentment, dishonor, intent to accelerate, acceleration, protest, default, nonpayment, maturity, release, compromise, settlement, extension or renewal of any or all Financing Documents and hereby ratifies and confirms whatever Agent or Lenders may do in this regard; (ii) all rights to notice and a hearing prior to Agent’s or any Lender’s entry upon the premises of a Borrower, the taking possession or control of, or to Agent’s or any Lender’s replevy, attachment or levy upon, any Collateral or any bond or security which might be required by any court prior to allowing Agent or any Lender to exercise any of its remedies; and (iii) the benefit of all valuation, appraisal and exemption Laws.  Each Borrower acknowledges that it has been advised by counsel of its choices and decisions with respect to this Agreement, the other Financing Documents and the transactions evidenced hereby and thereby.

 

(b)                                 Each Borrower for itself and all its successors and assigns, (i) agrees that its liability shall not be in any manner affected by any indulgence, extension of time, renewal, waiver, or modification granted or consented to by Agent or any Lender; (ii) consents to any indulgences and all extensions of time, renewals, waivers, or modifications that may be granted by Agent or any Lender with respect to the payment or other provisions of the Financing Documents, and to any substitution, exchange or release of the Collateral, or any part thereof, with or without substitution, and agrees to the addition or release of any Borrower, endorsers, guarantors, or sureties, or whether primarily or secondarily liable, without notice to any other Borrower and without affecting its liability hereunder; (iii) agrees that its liability shall be unconditional and without regard to the liability of any other Borrower, Agent or any Lender for any tax on the indebtedness; and (iv) to the fullest extent permitted by law, expressly waives the benefit of any statute or rule of law or equity now provided, or which may hereafter be provided, which would produce a result contrary to or in conflict with the foregoing.

 

(c)                                  To the extent that Agent or any Lender may have acquiesced in any noncompliance with any requirements or conditions precedent to the closing of the Credit Facilities or to any subsequent disbursement of Credit Extensions, such acquiescence shall not be deemed to constitute a waiver by Agent or any Lender of such requirements with respect to any future Credit Extensions and Agent may at any time after such acquiescence require Borrower to comply with all such requirements.  Any forbearance by Agent or a Lender in exercising any right or remedy under any of the Financing Documents, or otherwise afforded by applicable law, including any failure to accelerate the maturity date of the Credit Facilities, shall not be a waiver of or preclude the exercise of any right or remedy nor shall it serve as a novation of the Financing Documents or as a reinstatement of the Obligations or a waiver of such right of acceleration or the right to insist upon strict compliance of the terms of the Financing Documents.  Agent’s or any Lender’s acceptance of payment of any sum secured by any of the Financing Documents after the due date of such payment shall not be a waiver of Agent’s and such Lender’s right to either require prompt payment when due of all other sums so secured or to declare a default for failure to make prompt payment.  The procurement of insurance or the payment of taxes or other Liens or charges by Agent as the result of an Event of Default shall not be a waiver of Agent’s right to accelerate the maturity of the Obligations, nor shall Agent’s receipt of any condemnation awards, insurance proceeds, or damages under this Agreement operate to cure or waive any Credit Party’s default in payment of sums secured by any of the Financing Documents.

 

(d)                                 Without limiting the generality of anything contained in this Agreement or the other Financing Documents, each Borrower agrees that if an Event of Default is continuing (i) Agent and Lenders shall not be subject to any “one action” or “election of remedies” law or rule, and (ii) all Liens and other rights, remedies or privileges provided to Agent or Lenders shall remain in full force and effect until Agent or Lenders have exhausted all remedies against the Collateral and any other properties owned by Borrower and the Financing Documents and other security instruments or agreements securing the Obligations have been foreclosed, sold and/or otherwise realized upon in satisfaction of Borrower’s obligations under the Financing Documents.

 

(e)                                  Neither Agent nor any Lender shall be under any obligation to marshal any assets in payment of any or all of the Obligations.  Nothing contained herein or in any other Financing Document shall be construed as requiring

 

25



 

Agent or any Lender to resort to any part of the Collateral for the satisfaction of any of Borrower’s obligations under the Financing Documents in preference or priority to any other Collateral, and Agent may seek satisfaction out of all of the Collateral or any part thereof, in its absolute discretion in respect of Borrower’s obligations under the Financing Documents.  To the fullest extent permitted by law, each Borrower, for itself and its successors and assigns, waives in the event of foreclosure of any or all of the Collateral any equitable right otherwise available to any Credit Party which would require the separate sale of any of the Collateral or require Agent or Lenders to exhaust their remedies against any part of the Collateral before proceeding against any other part of the Collateral; and further in the event of such foreclosure each Borrower does hereby expressly consent to and authorize, at the option of Agent, the foreclosure and sale either separately or together of each part of the Collateral.

 

10.8                        Injunctive Relief.  The parties acknowledge and agree that, in the event of a breach or threatened breach of any Credit Party’s obligations under any Financing Documents, Agent and Lenders may have no adequate remedy in money damages and, accordingly, shall be entitled to an injunction (including, without limitation, a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, writ of attachment, or order compelling an audit) against such breach or threatened breach, including, without limitation, maintaining any cash management and collection procedure described herein.  However, no specification in this Agreement of a specific legal or equitable remedy shall be construed as a waiver or prohibition against any other legal or equitable remedies in the event of a breach or threatened breach of any provision of this Agreement.  Each Credit Party waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the requirement of the posting of any bond in connection with such injunctive relief.  By joining in the Financing Documents as a Credit Party, each Credit Party specifically joins in this Section 10.8 as if this Section 10.8 were a part of each Financing Document executed by such Credit Party.

 

11                                  NOTICES

 

All notices, consents, requests, approvals, demands, or other communications (collectively, “Communication”) by any party to this Agreement or any other Financing Document must be in writing and shall be deemed to have been validly served, given, or delivered: (a) upon the earlier of actual receipt and three (3) Business Days after deposit in the U.S. mail, first class, registered or certified mail return receipt requested, with proper postage prepaid; (b) upon transmission, when sent by electronic mail (if an email address is specified herein) or facsimile transmission; (c) one (1) Business Day after deposit with a reputable overnight courier with all charges prepaid; or (d) when delivered, if hand-delivered by messenger, all of which shall be addressed to the party to be notified and sent to the address, facsimile number, or email address indicated below.  Any of Agent, Lender or Borrower may change its mailing or electronic mail address or facsimile number by giving the other party written notice thereof in accordance with the terms of this Article 11.

12                                  CHOICE OF LAW, VENUE AND JURY TRIAL WAIVER

 

12.1                        THIS AGREEMENT, EACH SECURED PROMISSORY NOTE AND EACH OTHER FINANCING DOCUMENT, AND THE RIGHTS, REMEDIES AND OBLIGATIONS OF THE PARTIES HERETO AND THERETO, AND ANY CLAIM, CONTROVERSY OR DISPUTE ARISING UNDER OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT OR SUCH FINANCING DOCUMENT, THE RELATIONSHIP OF THE PARTIES, AND/OR THE INTERPRETATION AND ENFORCEMENT OF THE RIGHTS AND DUTIES OF THE PARTIES AND ALL OTHER MATTERS RELATING HERETO, THERETO OR ARISING THEREFROM (WHETHER SOUNDING IN CONTRACT LAW, TORT LAW OR OTHERWISE), SHALL BE GOVERNED BY, AND CONSTRUED AND INTERPRETED IN ACCORDANCE WITH, THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF MARYLAND, WITHOUT REFERENCE TO ITS CONFLICT OF LAW PROVISIONS.  NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, AGENT AND LENDERS SHALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO BRING ANY ACTION OR PROCEEDING AGAINST BORROWER OR ITS PROPERTY IN THE COURTS OF ANY OTHER JURISDICTION WHICH AGENT AND LENDERS (IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE PROVISIONS OF SECTION 12.1) DEEM NECESSARY OR APPROPRIATE TO REALIZE ON THE COLLATERAL OR TO OTHERWISE ENFORCE AGENT’S AND LENDERS’ RIGHTS AGAINST BORROWER OR ITS PROPERTY. BORROWER EXPRESSLY SUBMITS AND CONSENTS IN ADVANCE TO SUCH JURISDICTION IN ANY ACTION OR SUIT COMMENCED IN ANY SUCH COURT, AND BORROWER HEREBY WAIVES ANY OBJECTION THAT IT MAY HAVE BASED UPON LACK OF PERSONAL JURISDICTION, IMPROPER VENUE, OR FORUM NON CONVENIENS AND HEREBY CONSENTS TO THE GRANTING OF SUCH LEGAL OR EQUITABLE RELIEF AS IS DEEMED APPROPRIATE BY SUCH COURT.  BORROWER HEREBY WAIVES PERSONAL SERVICE OF THE SUMMONS, COMPLAINTS, AND OTHER PROCESS ISSUED IN SUCH ACTION OR SUIT AND AGREES THAT SERVICE OF SUCH SUMMONS, COMPLAINTS, AND OTHER PROCESS MAY BE MADE BY REGISTERED OR CERTIFIED MAIL ADDRESSED TO BORROWER AT THE ADDRESS SET FORTH IN ARTICLE 11 OF THIS AGREEMENT AND THAT SERVICE SO MADE SHALL BE DEEMED COMPLETED UPON THE EARLIER TO OCCUR OF BORROWER’S ACTUAL RECEIPT THEREOF OR THREE (3) DAYS AFTER DEPOSIT IN THE U.S. MAIL, PROPER POSTAGE PREPAID.

13                                  GENERAL PROVISIONS

 

13.1                        Successors and Assigns.

 

(a)                                 This Agreement binds and is for the benefit of the successors and permitted assigns of each party.  Borrower may not assign this Agreement or any rights or obligations under it without Agent’s prior written consent (which may be granted or withheld in Agent’s discretion).  Any Lender may at any time assign to one or more Eligible Assignees all or any portion of such Lender’s Applicable Commitment and/or Credit Extensions, together with all related obligations of such Lender hereunder.  Borrower and Agent shall be entitled to continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with the interests so assigned until Agent shall have received and accepted an effective assignment agreement in form and substance acceptable to Agent, executed, delivered and fully completed by the applicable parties thereto, and shall have received such other information regarding such Eligible Assignee as Agent reasonably shall require.  Notwithstanding anything set forth in this Agreement to the contrary, any Lender may at any time pledge or assign a security interest in all or any portion of its rights under this Agreement to secure obligations of such Lender, including any pledge or assignment to secure obligations to a Federal Reserve Bank; provided, however, that no such pledge or assignment shall release such Lender from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such pledgee or assignee for such Lender as a party hereto. If requested by Agent, Borrower agrees to (i) execute any documents reasonably required to effectuate and acknowledge each assignment of an Applicable Commitment or Credit Extension to an assignee hereunder, (ii) make Borrower’s management available to meet with Agent and prospective participants and assignees of Applicable Commitments or Credit Extensions at any reasonable time and upon reasonable prior notice to the Borrower and (iii) assist Agent or the Lenders in the preparation of information relating to the financial affairs of Borrower as any prospective participant or assignee of an Applicable Commitment or Credit Extension reasonably may request.

 

(b)                                 From and after the date on which the conditions described above have been met, (i) such Eligible Assignee shall be deemed automatically to have become a party hereto and, to the extent of the interests assigned to such Eligible Assignee pursuant to such assignment agreement, shall have the rights and obligations of a Lender hereunder, and (ii) the assigning Lender, to the extent that rights and obligations hereunder have been assigned by it pursuant to such assignment agreement, shall be released from its rights and obligations hereunder (other than those that survive termination).  Upon the request of the Eligible Assignee (and, as applicable, the assigning Lender) pursuant to an effective assignment agreement, each Borrower shall execute and deliver to Agent for delivery to the Eligible Assignee (and, as applicable, the assigning Lender) secured notes in the aggregate principal amount of the Eligible Assignee’s Credit Extensions or Applicable Commitments (and, as applicable, secured promissory notes in the principal amount of that portion of the principal amount of the Credit Extensions or Applicable Commitments retained by the assigning Lender).

 

(c)                                  Agent, acting solely for this purpose as an agent of Borrower, shall maintain at its offices located in Bethesda, Maryland a copy of each assignment agreement delivered to it and a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of each Lender, and the commitments of, and principal amount (and stated interest) of the Credit Extensions owing to, such Lender pursuant to the terms hereof (the “Register”). The entries in such Register shall be conclusive, absent manifest error, and Borrower, Agent and Lenders may treat each Person whose name is recorded therein pursuant to the terms hereof as a Lender hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement, notwithstanding notice to the contrary. Such Register shall be available for inspection by Borrower and any Lender, at any reasonable time upon reasonable prior notice to Agent. Each Lender that sells a participation shall, acting solely for this purpose as an agent of the Borrower maintain a register on which it enters the name and address of each participant and the principal amounts (and stated interest) of each participant’s interest in the Obligations (each, a “Participant Register”). The entries in the Participant Registers shall be conclusive, absent manifest error. Each Participant Register shall be available for inspection by Borrower and the Agent at any reasonable time upon reasonable prior notice to the applicable Lender; provided, that no Lender shall have any obligation to disclose all or any portion of the Participant Register (including the identity of any Participant or any information relating to a Participant’s interest in any commitments, loans, letters of credit or its other obligations under any Loan Document) to any Person (including Borrower) except to the extent that such disclosure is necessary to establish that such commitment, loan, letter of credit or other obligation is in registered form under Section 5f.103-1(c) of the United States Treasury Regulations.  For the avoidance of doubt, the Agent (in its capacity as Agent) shall have no responsibility for maintaining a Participant Register.

 

(d)                                 Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, the Credit Extensions (including any Secured Promissory Notes evidencing such Credit Extensions) are registered obligations, the right, title and interest of the Lenders and their assignees in and to such Credit Extensions shall be transferable only upon notation of such transfer in the Register and no assignment thereof shall be effective until recorded therein.  This Agreement shall be construed so that the Credit Extensions are at all times maintained in “registered form” within the meaning of Sections 163(f), 871(h)(2) and 881(c)(2) of the Internal Revenue Code and Section 5f.103-1(c) of the United States Treasury Regulations.

13.2                        Indemnification.

 

(a)                                 Borrower hereby agrees to promptly pay (i) all costs and expenses of Agent (including, without limitation, the reasonable fees, costs and expenses of counsel to, and independent appraisers and consultants retained by Agent) in connection with the examination, review, due diligence investigation, documentation, negotiation, and closing of the transactions contemplated by the Financing Documents, in connection with any assignment by a Lender of any portion of its Applicable Commitment and/or Credit Extensions, in connection with the performance by Agent of its rights and remedies under the Financing Documents and in connection with the continued administration of the Financing Documents including (A) any amendments, modifications, consents and waivers to and/or under any and all Financing Documents, and (B) any periodic public record searches conducted by or at the request of Agent (including, without limitation, title investigations, UCC searches, fixture filing searches, judgment, pending litigation and tax lien searches and searches of applicable corporate, limited liability, partnership and related records concerning the continued existence, organization and good standing of certain Persons); (ii) without limitation of the preceding clause (i), all costs and expenses of Agent in connection with the creation, perfection and maintenance of Liens pursuant to the Financing Documents; (iii) without limitation of the preceding clause (i), all costs and expenses of Agent in connection with (A) protecting, storing, insuring, handling, maintaining or selling any Collateral, (B) any litigation, dispute, suit or proceeding relating to any Financing Document, and (C) any workout, collection, bankruptcy, insolvency and other enforcement proceedings under any and all of the Financing Documents; (iv) without limitation of the preceding clause (i), all costs and expenses of Agent in connection with Agent’s reservation of funds in anticipation of the funding of the Credit Extensions to be made hereunder; and (v) all costs and expenses incurred by Agent or Lenders in connection with any litigation, dispute, suit or proceeding relating to any Financing Document and in connection with any workout, collection, bankruptcy, insolvency and other enforcement proceedings under any and all Financing Documents, whether or not Agent or Lenders are a party thereto.

 

(b)                                 Borrower hereby agrees to indemnify, pay and hold harmless Agent and Lenders and the officers, directors, employees, trustees, agents, investment advisors, collateral managers, servicers, and counsel of Agent and Lenders (collectively called the “Indemnitees”) from and against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, claims, costs, expenses and disbursements of any kind or nature whatsoever (including the fees and disbursements of counsel for such Indemnitee) in connection with any investigative, response, remedial, administrative or judicial matter or proceeding, whether or not such Indemnitee shall be designated a party thereto and including any such proceeding initiated by or on behalf of a Credit Party, and the reasonable expenses of investigation by engineers, environmental consultants and similar technical personnel and any commission, fee or compensation claimed by any broker (other than any broker retained by Agent or Lenders) asserting any right to payment for the transactions contemplated hereby, which may be imposed on, incurred by or asserted against such Indemnitee as a result of or in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby and the use or intended use of the proceeds of the Credit Facilities, except that Borrower shall have no obligation hereunder to an Indemnitee with respect to any liability resulting from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Indemnitee, as determined by a final non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction.  To the extent that the undertaking set forth in the immediately preceding sentence may be unenforceable, Borrower shall contribute the maximum portion which it is permitted to pay and satisfy under applicable Law to the payment and satisfaction of all such indemnified liabilities incurred by the Indemnitees or any of them. No Indemnitee shall be liable for any damages arising from the use by unintended recipients of any information or other materials distributed by it through telecommunications, electronic or other information transmission systems in connection with this Agreement or the other Financing Documents or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby.

 

(c)                                  Notwithstanding any contrary provision in this Agreement, the obligations of Borrower under this Section 13.2 shall survive the payment in full of the Obligations and the termination of this Agreement. NO INDEMNITEE SHALL BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE TO ANY CREDIT PARTY OR TO ANY OTHER PARTY TO ANY FINANCING DOCUMENT, ANY SUCCESSOR, ASSIGNEE OR THIRD PARTY BENEFICIARY OR ANY OTHER PERSON ASSERTING CLAIMS DERIVATIVELY THROUGH SUCH PARTY, FOR INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHICH MAY BE ALLEGED AS A RESULT OF CREDIT HAVING BEEN EXTENDED, SUSPENDED OR TERMINATED UNDER THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OTHER FINANCING DOCUMENT OR AS A RESULT OF ANY OTHER TRANSACTION CONTEMPLATED HEREUNDER OR THEREUNDER.

 

13.3                        Time of Essence.  Time is of the essence for the payment and performance of the Obligations in this Agreement.

 

29



 

13.4                        Severability of Provisions.  Each provision of this Agreement is severable from every other provision in determining the enforceability of any provision.

 

13.5                        Correction of Financing Documents.  Agent and the Lenders may correct patent errors and fill in any blanks in this Agreement and the other Financing Documents consistent with the agreement of the parties.

 

13.6                        Integration.  This Agreement and the Financing Documents represent the entire agreement about this subject matter and supersede prior negotiations or agreements.  All prior agreements, understandings, representations, warranties, and negotiations between the parties about the subject matter of this Agreement and the Financing Documents merge into this Agreement and the Financing Documents.

 

13.7                        Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts and by different parties on separate counterparts, each of which, when executed and delivered, is an original, and all taken together, constitute one Agreement. Delivery of an executed signature page of this Agreement by facsimile transmission or electronic transmission shall be as effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart hereof.

 

13.8                        Survival.  All covenants, representations and warranties made in this Agreement continue in full force until this Agreement has terminated pursuant to its terms and all Obligations (other than inchoate indemnity obligations and any other obligations which, by their terms, are to survive the termination of this Agreement) have been satisfied. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the obligations of Borrower under Section 6.15 shall survive the termination of this Agreement and satisfaction of the Obligations.  The obligation of Borrower in Section 13.2 to indemnify each Lender and Agent shall survive until the statute of limitations with respect to such claim or cause of action shall have run.  All powers of attorney and appointments of Agent or any Lender as Borrower’s attorney in fact hereunder, and all of Agent’s and Lenders’ rights and powers in respect thereof, are coupled with an interest, are irrevocable until all Obligations (other than inchoate indemnity obligations and any other obligations which, by their terms, are to survive the termination of this Agreement) have been fully repaid and performed and Agent’s and the Lenders’ obligation to provide Credit Extensions terminates.

 

13.9                        Confidentiality.  In handling any confidential information of Borrower, each of the Lenders and Agent shall use all reasonable efforts to maintain the confidentiality of information obtained by it pursuant to any Financing Document and designated in writing by any Credit Party as confidential, but disclosure of information may be made: (a) to the Lenders’ and Agent’s Subsidiaries or Affiliates; (b) to prospective transferees or purchasers of any interest in the Credit Extensions so long as such Persons are bound by the obligations of confidentiality to Agent or a Lender, as applicable; (c) as required by Law, regulation, subpoena, order or other legal, administrative, governmental or regulatory request; (d) to regulators or as otherwise required in connection with an examination or audit, or to any nationally recognized rating agency; (e) as Agent or any Lender considers appropriate in exercising remedies under the Financing Documents; (f) to financing sources that are advised of the confidential nature of such information and are instructed to keep such information confidential; (g) to third party service providers of the Lenders and/or Agent so long as such service providers are bound to such Lender or Agent by obligations of confidentiality; and (h) in connection with any litigation or other proceeding to which such Lender or Agent or any of their Affiliates is a party or bound, or to the extent necessary to respond to public statements or disclosures by Credit Parties or their Affiliates referring to a Lender or Agent or any of their Affiliates.  Confidential information does not include information that either: (i) is in the public domain or in the Lenders’ and/or Agent’s possession when disclosed to the Lenders and/or Agent, or becomes part of the public domain after disclosure to the Lenders and/or Agent; or (ii) is disclosed to the Lenders and/or Agent by a third party, if the Lenders and/or Agent does not know that the third party is prohibited from disclosing the information.  Agent and/or Lenders may use confidential information for any purpose, including, without limitation, for the development of client databases, reporting purposes, and market analysis, so long as Agent and/or Lenders, as applicable, do not disclose Borrower’s identity or the identity of any Person associated with Borrower unless otherwise permitted by this Agreement.  The provisions of the immediately preceding sentence shall survive the termination of this Agreement. The agreements provided under this Section 13.9 supersede all prior agreements, understanding, representations, warranties, and negotiations between the parties about the subject matter of this Section 13.9.

 

13.10                 Right of Set-off.  Borrower hereby grants to Agent and to each Lender, a lien, security interest and right of set-off as security for all Obligations to Agent and each Lender hereunder, whether now existing or hereafter arising upon and against all deposits, credits, collateral and property, now or hereafter in the possession, custody, safekeeping or control of Agent or the Lenders or any entity under the control of Agent or the Lenders (including an Agent or Lender Affiliate) or in transit to any of them.  At any time after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, without demand or notice, Agent or the Lenders may set-off the same or any part thereof and apply the same to any liability or obligation of

 

30


 

Borrower even though unmatured and regardless of the adequacy of any other collateral securing the Obligations.  ANY AND ALL RIGHTS TO REQUIRE AGENT TO EXERCISE ITS RIGHTS OR REMEDIES WITH RESPECT TO ANY OTHER COLLATERAL WHICH SECURES THE OBLIGATIONS, PRIOR TO EXERCISING ITS RIGHT OF SET-OFF WITH RESPECT TO SUCH DEPOSITS, CREDITS OR OTHER PROPERTY OF BORROWER, ARE HEREBY KNOWINGLY, VOLUNTARILY AND IRREVOCABLY WAIVED.

 

13.11                 Publicity.  Subject to the immediately succeeding sentence, Borrower will not directly or indirectly publish, disclose or otherwise use in any public disclosure, advertising material, promotional material, press release or interview, any reference to the name, logo or any trademark of Agent or any Lender or any of their Affiliates or any reference to this Agreement or the financing evidenced hereby, in any case except as required by applicable Law, subpoena or judicial or similar order, in which case Borrower shall endeavor to give Agent prior written notice of such publication or other disclosure.  Each of the Agent, the Lender and Borrower (the “Authorizing Person”) hereby authorizes each other party (the “Publishing Person”) to publish, disclose and otherwise use the name of such Agent, Lender and Borrower, the existence of the financing arrangements referenced under this Agreement, the primary purpose and/or structure of those arrangements, the amount of credit extended under each facility, the title and role of each party to this Agreement, and the total amount of the financing evidenced hereby in any “tombstone”, comparable advertisement or press release which such Publishing Person elects to submit for publication.  In addition, each Lender and Borrower agrees that Agent and each Lender may provide lending industry trade organizations with information necessary and customary for inclusion in league table measurements after the Closing Date (but in all events, without disclosing any confidential information).  With respect to any of the foregoing, such authorization shall be subject to such Publishing Person providing the Authorizing Persons with an opportunity to review and confer with such Publishing Person regarding, and approve, the contents of any such tombstone, advertisement or information, as applicable, prior to its initial submission for publication, but subsequent publications of the same tombstone, advertisement or information shall not require such Publishing Person’s approval.

 

13.12                 No Strict Construction. The parties hereto have participated jointly in the negotiation and drafting of this Agreement.  In the event an ambiguity or question of intent or interpretation arises, this Agreement shall be construed as if drafted jointly by the parties hereto and no presumption or burden of proof shall arise favoring or disfavoring any party by virtue of the authorship of any provisions of this Agreement.

 

13.13                 Approvals.  Unless expressly provided herein to the contrary, any approval, consent, waiver or satisfaction of Agent or Lenders with respect to any matter that is the subject of this Agreement or the other Financing Documents may be granted or withheld by Agent and Lenders in their sole and absolute discretion and credit judgment.

 

13.14                 Amendments; Required Lenders; Inter-Lender Matters.

 

(a)                                 No amendment, modification, termination or waiver of any provision of this Agreement or any other Financing Document, no approval or consent thereunder, or any consent to any departure by Borrower therefrom (in each case, other than amendments, waivers, approvals or consents deemed ministerial by Agent), shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be in writing and signed by Borrower, Agent and Required Lenders.  Except as set forth in clause (b) below, all such amendments, modifications, terminations or waivers requiring the consent of the “Lenders” shall require the written consent of Required Lenders.

 

(b)                                 No amendment, modification, termination or waiver of any provision of this Agreement or any other Financing Document shall, unless in writing and signed by Agent and by each Lender directly affected thereby: (i) increase or decrease the Applicable Commitment of any Lender (which shall be deemed to affect all Lenders), (ii) reduce the principal of or rate of interest on any Obligation or the amount of any fees payable hereunder or under any Financing Document, (iii) postpone the date fixed for or waive any payment of principal of or interest on any Credit Extension, or any fees or reimbursement obligation hereunder, (iv) release all or substantially all of the Collateral, or consent to a transfer of any of the Intellectual Property, in each case, except as otherwise expressly permitted in the Financing Documents (which shall be deemed to affect all Lenders), (v) subordinate the lien granted in favor of Agent securing the Obligations (which shall be deemed to affect all Lenders, except as otherwise provided below), (vi) release a Credit Party from, or consent to a Credit Party’s assignment or delegation of, such Credit Party’s obligations hereunder and under the other Financing Documents or any Guarantor from its guaranty of the Obligations (which shall be deemed to affect all Lenders) or (vii) amend, modify, terminate or waive this Section 13.14(b) or the definition of “Required Lenders” or “Pro Rata Share” or any other provision hereof specifying the number or percentage of Lenders required to amend, waive or otherwise modify any rights hereunder or make any determination or grant any consent hereunder, without the consent of each Lender.  For

 

31



 

purposes of the foregoing, no Lender shall be deemed affected by (i) waiver of the imposition of the Default Rate or imposition of the Default Rate to only a portion of the Obligations, (ii) waiver of the accrual of late charges, (iii) waiver of any fees, costs and expenses solely payable to Agent or any other Lender under the Financing Documents (which waiver shall require the consent of the applicable Agent or Lender), (iv) subordination of a lien granted in favor of Agent provided such subordination is limited to equipment being financed by a third party providing Permitted Indebtedness (and related proceeds relating solely to the sale of such equipment).  Notwithstanding any provision in this Section 13.14 to the contrary, no amendment, modification, termination or waiver affecting or modifying the rights or obligations of Agent hereunder shall be effective unless signed by Agent and Required Lenders.

 

(c)                                  Agent shall not grant its written consent to any deviation or departure by Borrower or any Credit Party from the provisions of Article 7 without the prior written consent of the Required Lenders.  Required Lenders shall have the right to direct Agent to take any action described in Section 10.2(b). Upon the occurrence of any Event of Default, Agent shall have the right to exercise any and all remedies referenced in Section 10.2 without the written consent of Required Lenders following the occurrence of an “Exigent Circumstance” (as defined below).  All matters requiring the satisfaction or acceptance of Agent in the definition of Subordinated Debt shall further require the satisfaction and acceptance of each Required Lender.  Any reference in this Agreement to an allocation between or sharing by the Lenders of any right, interest or obligation “ratably,” “proportionally” or in similar terms shall refer to Pro Rata Share unless expressly provided otherwise.  As used in this Section 13.14(c), “Exigent Circumstance” means any event or circumstance that, in the reasonable judgment of Agent, imminently threatens the ability of Agent to realize upon all or any material portion of the Collateral, such as, without limitation, fraudulent removal, concealment, or abscondment thereof, destruction or material waste thereof, or failure of Borrower after reasonable demand to maintain or reinstate adequate casualty insurance coverage, or which, in the judgment of Agent, could result in a material diminution in value of the Collateral.

 

13.15                 Borrower Liability.  If there is more than one entity comprising Borrower, then (a) any Borrower may, acting singly, request Credit Extensions hereunder, (b) each Borrower hereby appoints the other as agent for the other for all purposes hereunder, including with respect to requesting Credit Extensions hereunder, (c) each Borrower shall be jointly and severally obligated to pay and perform all obligations under the Financing Documents, including, but not limited to, the obligation to repay all Credit Extensions made hereunder and all other Obligations, regardless of which Borrower actually receives said Credit Extensions, as if each Borrower directly received all Credit Extensions, and (d) each Borrower waives (i) any suretyship defenses available to it under the Code or any other applicable law, and (ii) any right to require the Lenders or Agent to: (A) proceed against any Borrower or any other person; (B) proceed against or exhaust any security; or (C) pursue any other remedy.  The Lenders or Agent may exercise or not exercise any right or remedy they have against any Credit Party or any security (including the right to foreclose by judicial or non-judicial sale) without affecting any other Credit Party’s liability or any Lien against any other Credit Party’s assets.  Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement or other related document, until payment in full of the Obligations and termination of the Applicable Commitments, each Borrower irrevocably waives all rights that it may have at law or in equity (including, without limitation, any law subrogating Borrower to the rights of the Lenders and Agent under this Agreement) to seek contribution, indemnification or any other form of reimbursement from any other Credit Party, or any other Person now or hereafter primarily or secondarily liable for any of the Obligations, for any payment made by any Credit Party with respect to the Obligations in connection with this Agreement or otherwise and all rights that it might have to benefit from, or to participate in, any security for the Obligations as a result of any payment made by a Credit Party with respect to the Obligations in connection with this Agreement or otherwise.  Any agreement providing for indemnification, reimbursement or any other arrangement prohibited under this Section 13.15 shall be null and void.  If any payment is made to a Credit Party in contravention of this Section 13.15, such Credit Party shall hold such payment in trust for the Lenders and Agent and such payment shall be promptly delivered to Agent for application to the Obligations, whether matured or unmatured.

 

13.16                 Reinstatement.  This Agreement shall remain in full force and effect and continue to be effective should any petition or other proceeding be filed by or against any Credit Party for liquidation or reorganization, should any Credit Party become insolvent or make an assignment for the benefit of any creditor or creditors or should an interim receiver, receiver, receiver and manager or trustee be appointed for all or any significant part of any Credit Party’s assets, and shall continue to be effective or to be reinstated, as the case may be, if at any time payment and performance of the Obligations, or any part thereof, is, pursuant to applicable law, rescinded or reduced in amount, or must otherwise be restored or returned by any obligee of the Obligations, whether as a fraudulent preference reviewable transaction or otherwise, all as though such payment or performance had not been made.  In the event that any payment, or any part thereof, is rescinded, reduced, restored or returned, the Obligations shall be reinstated and deemed reduced only by such amount paid and not so rescinded, reduced, restored or returned.

 

32



 

13.17.              USA PATRIOT Act Notification.  Agent (for itself and not on behalf of any Lender) and each Lender hereby notifies each Borrower that pursuant to the requirements of the USA PATRIOT Act, it is required to obtain, verify and record certain information and documentation that identifies Borrower, which information includes the name and address of Borrower and such other information that will allow Agent or such Lender, as applicable, to identify Borrower in accordance with the USA PATRIOT Act.

 

13.18                 Warrants.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, any warrants issued to the Lenders by any Credit Party, the stock issuable thereunder, any equity securities purchased by Lenders, any amounts paid thereunder, any dividends, and any other rights in connection therewith shall not be subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and shall not be included as “Obligations” (other than reimbursable fees, costs and expenses associated therewith and reimbursable pursuant to and prior to the termination of, or in connection with the payment in full of the “Obligations” under, this Agreement and the other Loan Documents), provided that the foregoing shall not relieve Borrower of its obligation to issue any Warrant pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.  Nothing in this Agreement shall affect any Lender’s rights under any such warrants (including the Warrants), stock, or other equity securities to administer, manage, transfer, assign, or exercise such warrants, stock, or other equity securities for its own account.

 

14                                  AGENT

 

14.1                        Appointment and Authorization of Agent. Each Lender hereby irrevocably appoints, designates and authorizes Agent to take such action on its behalf under the provisions of this Agreement and each other Financing Document and to exercise such powers and perform such duties as are expressly delegated to it by the terms of this Agreement or any other Financing Document, together with such powers as are reasonably incidental thereto. The provisions of this Article 14 are solely for the benefit of Agent and Lenders and none of Credit Parties nor any other Person shall have any rights as a third party beneficiary of any of the provisions hereof.  The duties of Agent shall be mechanical and administrative in nature.  Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary contained elsewhere herein or in any other Financing Document, Agent shall not have any duties or responsibilities, except those expressly set forth herein, nor shall Agent have or be deemed to have any fiduciary relationship with any Lender or participant, and no implied covenants, functions, responsibilities, duties, obligations or liabilities shall be read into this Agreement or any other Financing Document or otherwise exist against Agent. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing sentence, the use of the term “agent” herein and in the other Financing Documents with reference to Agent is not intended to connote any fiduciary or other implied (or express) obligations arising under agency doctrine of any applicable Law. Instead, such term is used merely as a matter of market custom, and is intended to create or reflect only an administrative relationship between independent contracting parties.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Agent shall have the sole and exclusive right and authority (to the exclusion of the Lenders), and is hereby authorized, to (a) act as collateral agent for Agent and each Lender for purposes of the perfection of all liens created by the Financing Documents and all other purposes stated therein, (b) manage, supervise and otherwise deal with the Collateral, (c) take such other action as is necessary or desirable to maintain the perfection and priority of the liens created or purported to be created by the Financing Documents, (d) except as may be otherwise specified in any Financing Document, exercise all remedies given to Agent and the other Lenders with respect to the Collateral, whether under the Financing Documents, applicable law or otherwise and (e) execute any amendment, consent or waiver under the Financing Documents on behalf of any Lender that has consented in writing to such amendment, consent or waiver; provided, however, that Agent hereby appoints, authorizes and directs each Lender to act as collateral sub-agent for Agent and the Lenders for purposes of the perfection of all liens with respect to the Collateral, including any Collateral Account maintained by a Credit Party with, and cash and cash equivalents held by, such Lender, and may further authorize and direct the Lenders to take further actions as collateral sub-agents for purposes of enforcing such liens or otherwise to transfer the Collateral subject thereto to Agent, and each Lender hereby agrees to take such further actions to the extent, and only to the extent, so authorized and directed.

 

14.2                        Successor Agent.

 

(a)                                 Agent may at any time assign its rights, powers, privileges and duties hereunder to (i) another Lender or an Affiliate of Agent or any Lender or any Approved Fund, or (ii) any Person to whom Agent, in its capacity as a Lender, has assigned (or will assign, in conjunction with such assignment of agency rights hereunder) fifty percent (50%) or more of the Credit Extensions or Applicable Commitments then held by Agent (in its capacity as a Lender), in each case without the consent of the Lenders or Borrower.  Following any such assignment, Agent shall give notice to the Lenders and Borrower.  An assignment by Agent pursuant to this subsection (a) shall not be deemed a resignation by Agent for purposes of subsection (b) below.

 

33



 

(b)                                 Without limiting the rights of Agent to designate an assignee pursuant to subsection (a) above, Agent may at any time give notice of its resignation to the Lenders and Borrower.  Upon receipt of any such notice of resignation, Required Lenders shall have the right to appoint a successor Agent.  If no such successor shall have been so appointed by Required Lenders and shall have accepted such appointment within ten (10) Business Days after the retiring Agent gives notice of its resignation, then the retiring Agent may, on behalf of the Lenders, appoint a successor Agent; provided, however, that if Agent shall notify Borrower and the Lenders that no Person has accepted such appointment, then such resignation shall nonetheless become effective in accordance with such notice from Agent that no Person has accepted such appointment and, from and following delivery of such notice, (i) the retiring Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder and under the other Financing Documents, and (ii) all payments, communications and determinations provided to be made by, to or through Agent shall instead be made by or to each Lender directly, until such time as Required Lenders appoint a successor Agent as provided for above in this subsection (b).

 

(c)                                  Upon (i) an assignment permitted by subsection (a) above, or (ii) the acceptance of a successor’s appointment as Agent pursuant to subsection (b) above, such successor shall succeed to and become vested with all of the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring (or retired) Agent, and the retiring Agent shall be discharged from all of its duties and obligations hereunder and under the other Financing Documents (if not already discharged therefrom as provided above in this subsection (c)).  The fees payable by Borrower to a successor Agent shall be the same as those payable to its predecessor unless otherwise agreed between Borrower and such successor.  After the retiring Agent’s resignation hereunder and under the other Financing Documents, the provisions of this Article 14 shall continue in effect for the benefit of such retiring Agent and its sub-agents in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by any of them while the retiring Agent was acting or was continuing to act as Agent.

 

14.3                        Delegation of Duties. Agent may execute any of its duties under this Agreement or any other Financing Document by or through its, or its Affiliates’, agents, employees or attorneys-in-fact and shall be entitled to obtain and rely upon the advice of counsel and other consultants or experts concerning all matters pertaining to such duties. Agent shall not be responsible for the negligence or misconduct of any agent or attorney-in-fact that it selects in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct.  Any such Person to whom Agent delegates a duty shall benefit from this Article 14 to the extent provided by Agent.

 

14.4                        Liability of Agent. Except as otherwise provided herein, no “Agent-Related Person” (as defined below) shall (a) be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken by any of them under or in connection with this Agreement or any other Financing Document or the transactions contemplated hereby (except for its own gross negligence or willful misconduct in connection with its duties expressly set forth herein), or (b) be responsible in any manner to any Lender or participant for any recital, statement, representation or warranty made by any Credit Party or any officer thereof, contained herein or in any other Financing Document, or in any certificate, report, statement or other document referred to or provided for in, or received by Agent under or in connection with, this Agreement or any other Financing Document, or the validity, effectiveness, genuineness, enforceability or sufficiency of this Agreement or any other Financing Document, or for any failure of any Credit Party or any other party to any Financing Document to perform its obligations hereunder or thereunder. No Agent-Related Person shall be under any obligation to any Lender or participant to ascertain or to inquire as to the observance or performance of any of the agreements contained in, or conditions of, this Agreement or any other Financing Document, or to inspect the Collateral, other properties or books or records of any Credit Party or any Affiliate thereof.  The term “Agent-Related Person” means the Agent, together with its Affiliates, and the officers, directors, employees, agents, advisors, auditors and attorneys-in-fact of such Persons; provided, however, that no Agent-Related Person shall be an Affiliate of Borrower.

 

14.5                        Reliance by Agent. Agent shall be entitled to rely, and shall be fully protected in relying, upon any writing, communication, signature, resolution, representation, notice, consent, certificate, affidavit, letter, telegram, facsimile, telex or telephone message, electronic mail message, statement or other document or conversation believed by it to be genuine and correct and to have been signed, sent or made by the proper Person or Persons, and upon advice and statements of legal counsel (including counsel to Borrower), independent accountants and other experts selected by Agent. Agent shall be fully justified in failing or refusing to take any action under any Financing Document (a) if such action would, in the opinion of Agent, be contrary to law or any Financing Document, (b) if such action would, in the opinion of Agent, expose Agent to any potential liability under any law, statute or regulation or (c) if Agent shall not first have received such advice or concurrence of all Lenders as it deems appropriate and, if it so requests, it shall first be indemnified to its satisfaction by the Lenders against any and all liability and expense which may be incurred by it by reason of taking or continuing to take any such action. Agent shall in all cases be fully protected in acting, or in refraining from acting, under this Agreement or any other

 

34



 

Financing Document in accordance with a request or consent of all Lenders (or Required Lenders where authorized herein) and such request and any action taken or failure to act pursuant thereto shall be binding upon all the Lenders.

 

14.6                        Notice of Default. Agent shall not be deemed to have knowledge or notice of the occurrence of any Default and/or Event of Default, unless Agent shall have received written notice from a Lender or Borrower, describing such default or Event of Default. Agent will notify the Lenders of its receipt of any such notice. While an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Agent may (but shall not be obligated to) take such action, or refrain from taking such action, with respect to such Event of Default as Agent shall deem advisable or in the best interest of the Lenders, including without limitation,  satisfaction of other security interests, liens or encumbrances on the Collateral not permitted under the Financing Documents, payment of taxes on behalf of Borrower or any other Credit Party, payments to landlords, warehouseman, bailees and other Persons in possession of the Collateral and other actions to protect and safeguard the Collateral, and actions with respect to insurance claims for casualty events affecting a Credit Party and/or the Collateral.

 

14.7                        Credit Decision; Disclosure of Information by Agent. Each Lender acknowledges that no Agent-Related Person has made any representation or warranty to it, and that no act by Agent hereafter taken, including any consent to and acceptance of any assignment or review of the affairs of Borrower or any Affiliate thereof, shall be deemed to constitute any representation or warranty by any Agent-Related Person to any Lender as to any matter, including whether Agent-Related Persons have disclosed material information in their possession. Each Lender represents to Agent that it has, independently and without reliance upon any Agent-Related Person and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own appraisal of, and investigation into, the business, prospects, operations, property, financial and other condition and creditworthiness of the Credit Parties, and all applicable bank or other regulatory Laws relating to the transactions contemplated hereby, and made its own decision to enter into this Agreement and to extend credit to Borrower hereunder. Each Lender also represents that it will, independently and without reliance upon any Agent-Related Person and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own credit analysis, appraisals and decisions in taking or not taking action under this Agreement and the other Financing Documents, and to make such investigations as it deems necessary to inform itself as to the business, prospects, operations, property, financial and other condition and creditworthiness of Borrower. Except for notices, reports and other documents expressly required to be furnished to the Lenders by Agent herein, Agent shall not have any duty or responsibility to provide any Lender with any credit or other information concerning the business, prospects, operations, property, financial and other condition or creditworthiness of any Credit Party which may come into the possession of any Agent-Related Person.

 

14.8                        Indemnification of Agent. Whether or not the transactions contemplated hereby are consummated, each Lender shall, severally and pro rata based on its respective Pro Rata Share, indemnify upon demand each Agent-Related Person (to the extent not reimbursed by or on behalf of Borrower and without limiting the obligation of Borrower to do so), and hold harmless each Agent-Related Person from and against any and all Indemnified Liabilities (which shall not include legal expenses of Agent incurred in connection with the closing of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement) incurred by it; provided, however, that no Lender shall be liable for the payment to any Agent-Related Person of any portion of such Indemnified Liabilities to the extent determined in a judgment by a court of competent jurisdiction to have resulted from such Agent-Related Person’s own gross negligence or willful misconduct; provided, however, that no action taken in accordance with the directions of the Required Lenders shall be deemed to constitute gross negligence or willful misconduct for purposes of this Section 14.8. Without limitation of the foregoing, each Lender shall, severally and pro rata based on its respective Pro Rata Share, reimburse Agent upon demand for its ratable share of any costs or out-of-pocket expenses (including Protective Advances incurred after the closing of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement) incurred by Agent (in its capacity as Agent, and not as a Lender) in connection with the preparation, execution, delivery, administration, modification, amendment or enforcement (whether through negotiations, legal proceedings or otherwise) of, or legal advice in respect of rights or responsibilities under, this Agreement, any other Financing Document, or any document contemplated by or referred to herein, to the extent that Agent is not reimbursed for such expenses by or on behalf of Borrower. The undertaking in this Section 14.8 shall survive the payment in full of the Obligations, the termination of this Agreement and the resignation of Agent.

 

14.9                        Agent in its Individual Capacity.  With respect to its Credit Extensions, MidCap shall have the same rights and powers under this Agreement as any other Lender and may exercise such rights and powers as though it were not Agent, and the terms “Lender” and “Lenders” include MidCap in its individual capacity. MidCap and its Affiliates may lend money to, invest in, and generally engage in any kind of business with, any Credit Party and any of their Affiliates and any person who may do business with or own securities of any Credit Party or any of their Affiliates, all as if MidCap were not Agent and without any duty to account therefor to Lenders.  MidCap and its Affiliates may accept fees and other consideration from

 

35



 

a Credit Party for services in connection with this Agreement or otherwise without having to account for the same to Lenders.  Each Lender acknowledges the potential conflict of interest between MidCap as a Lender holding disproportionate interests in the Credit Extensions and MidCap as Agent, and expressly consents to, and waives, any claim based upon, such conflict of interest.

 

14.10                 Agent May File Proofs of Claim. In case of the pendency of any receivership, insolvency, liquidation, bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, adjustment, composition or other judicial proceeding relative to any Credit Party, Agent (irrespective of whether the principal of any Credit Extension, shall then be due and payable as herein expressed or by declaration or otherwise and irrespective of whether Agent shall have made any demand on such Credit Party) shall be entitled and empowered, by intervention in such proceeding or otherwise:

 

(a)                                 to file and prove a claim for the whole amount of the principal and interest owing and unpaid in respect of the Credit Extensions and all other Obligations that are owing and unpaid and to file such other documents as may be necessary or advisable in order to have the claims of the Lenders and Agent (including any claim for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Lenders and Agent and their respective agents and counsel and all other amounts due the Lenders and Agent allowed in such judicial proceeding); and

 

(b)                                 to collect and receive any monies or other property payable or deliverable on any such claims and to distribute the same;

 

and any custodian, receiver, assignee, trustee, liquidator, sequestrator or other similar official in any such judicial proceeding is hereby authorized by each Lender to make such payments to Agent and, in the event that Agent shall consent to the making of such payments directly to the Lenders, to pay to Agent any amount due for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of Agent and its agents and counsel, including Protective Advances.  To the extent that Agent fails timely to do so, each Lender may file a claim relating to such Lender’s claim.

 

14.11                 Collateral and Guaranty Matters. The Lenders irrevocably authorize Agent, at its option and in its discretion, to release (a) any Credit Party and any Lien on any Collateral granted to or held by Agent under any Financing Document upon the date that all Obligations due hereunder have been paid in full in cash and no Applicable Commitments or other obligations of any Lender to provide funds to Borrower under this Agreement remain outstanding, and (b) any Lien on any Collateral that is transferred or to be transferred as part of or in connection with any transfer permitted hereunder or under any other Financing Document. Upon request by Agent at any time, all Lenders will confirm in writing Agent’s authority to release its interest in particular types or items of Collateral pursuant to this Section 14.11.

 

14.12                 Advances; Payments; Non-Funding Lenders.

 

(a)                                 Advances; Payments.  If Agent receives any payment for the account of Lenders on or prior to 11:00 a.m. (New York time) on any Business Day, Agent shall pay to each applicable Lender such Lender’s Pro Rata Share of such payment on such Business Day. If Agent receives any payment for the account of Lenders after 11:00 a.m. (New York time) on any Business Day, Agent shall pay to each applicable Lender such Lender’s Pro Rata Share of such payment on the next Business Day. To the extent that any Lender has failed to fund any Credit Extension (a “Non-Funding Lender”), Agent shall be entitled to set-off the funding short-fall against that Non-Funding Lender’s Pro Rata Share of all payments received from Borrower.

 

(b)                                 Return of Payments.

 

(i)                                     If Agent pays an amount to a Lender under this Agreement in the belief or expectation that a related payment has been or will be received by Agent from a Credit Party and such related payment is not received by Agent, then Agent will be entitled to recover such amount (including interest accruing on such amount at the Federal Funds Rate for the first Business Day and thereafter, at the rate otherwise applicable to such Obligation) from such Lender on demand without set-off, counterclaim or deduction of any kind.

 

(ii)                                  If Agent determines at any time that any amount received by Agent under this Agreement must be returned to a Credit Party or paid to any other person pursuant to any insolvency law or otherwise, then, notwithstanding any other term or condition of this Agreement or any other Financing Document, Agent will not be required

 

36



 

to distribute any portion thereof to any Lender.  In addition, each Lender will repay to Agent on demand any portion of such amount that Agent has distributed to such Lender, together with interest at such rate, if any, as Agent is required to pay to a Credit Party or such other person, without set-off, counterclaim or deduction of any kind.

 

14.13                 Miscellaneous.

 

(a)                                 Neither Agent nor any Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any Non-Funding Lender to make a Credit Extension or make any other advance required hereunder.  The failure of any Non-Funding Lender to make any Credit Extension or any payment required by it hereunder shall not relieve any other Lender (each such other Lender, an “Other Lender”) of its obligations to make the Credit Extension or payment required by it, but neither any Other Lender nor Agent shall be responsible for the failure of any Non-Funding Lender to make a Credit Extension or make any other payment required hereunder.  Notwithstanding anything set forth herein to the contrary, a Non-Funding Lender shall not have any voting or consent rights under or with respect to any Financing Document or constitute a “Lender” (or be included in the calculation of “Required Lender” hereunder) for any voting or consent rights under or with respect to any Financing Document.  At Borrower’s request, Agent or a person reasonably acceptable to Agent shall have the right with Agent’s consent and in Agent’s sole discretion (but shall have no obligation) to purchase from any Non-Funding Lender, and each Non-Funding Lender agrees that it shall, at Agent’s request, sell and assign to Agent or such person, all of the Applicable Commitments and all of the outstanding Credit Extensions of that Non-Funding Lender for an amount equal to the principal balance of the Credit Extensions held by such Non-Funding Lender and all accrued interest and fees with respect thereto through the date of sale, such purchase and sale to be consummated pursuant to an executed assignment agreement reasonably acceptable to Agent.

 

(b)                                 Each Lender shall promptly remit to the other Lenders such sums as may be necessary to ensure the ratable repayment of each Lender’s portion of any Credit Extension and the ratable distribution of interest, fees and reimbursements paid or made by any Credit Party.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if this Agreement requires payments of principal and interest to be made directly to the Lenders, a Lender receiving a scheduled payment shall not be responsible for determining whether the other Lenders also received their scheduled payment on such date; provided, however, if it is determined that a Lender received more than its ratable share of scheduled payments made on any date or dates, then such Lender shall remit to the Agent (for Agent to redistribute to itself and the Lenders in a manner to ensure the payment to Agent of any sums due Agent hereunder and the ratable repayment of each Lender’s portion of any Credit Extension and the ratable distribution of interest, fees and reimbursements) such sums as may be necessary to ensure the ratable payment of such scheduled payments, as instructed by Agent.  If any payment or distribution of any kind or character, whether in cash, properties or securities and whether voluntary, involuntary, through the exercise of any right of set-off, or otherwise, shall be received by a Lender in excess of its ratable share, then (i) the portion of such payment or distribution in excess of such Lender’s ratable share shall be received by such Lender in trust for application to the payments of amounts due on the other Lender’s claims, or, in the case of Collateral, shall hold such Collateral for itself and as agent and bailee for the Agent and other Lenders and (ii) such Lender shall promptly advise the Agent of the receipt of such payment, and, within five (5) Business Days of such receipt and, in the case of payments and distributions, such Lender shall purchase (for cash at face value) from the other Lenders (through the Agent), without recourse, such participations in the Credit Extension made by the other Lenders as shall be necessary to cause such purchasing Lender to share the excess payment ratably with each of them in accordance with the respective Pro Rata Shares of the Lenders; provided, however, that if all or any portion of such excess payment is thereafter recovered by or on behalf of a Credit Party from such purchasing Lender, the purchase shall be rescinded and the purchase price restored to the extent of such recovery, but without interest; provided, further, that the provisions of this Section 14.13(b) shall not be construed to apply to (x) any payment made by a Credit Party pursuant to and in accordance with the express terms of this Agreement or the other Financing Documents, or (y) any payment obtained by a Lender as consideration for the assignment of or sale of a participation in any of its Applicable Commitment pursuant to Section 13.1.  Borrower agrees that any Lender so purchasing a participation from another Lender pursuant to this Section 14.13(b) may exercise all its rights of payment (including the right of set-off) with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were the direct creditor of the Borrower in the amount of such participation.  No documentation other than notices and the like shall be required to implement the terms of this Section 14.13(b).  The Agent shall keep records (which shall be conclusive and binding in the absence of manifest error) of participations purchased pursuant to this Section 14.13(b) and shall in each case notify the Lenders following any such purchases.

Series B Preferred Stock

 

 

Warrant Price:

$0.9503 per Share (Subject to adjustment as hereinafter provided)

 

 

Issue Date:

             , 201

 

 

Expiration Date:

The earlier to occur of the (i) expiration of this Warrant pursuant to Article 1.6 hereof or (ii) 7th anniversary after the Issue Date

 

 

Credit Facility:

This Warrant is issued in connection with the Credit and Security Agreement, dated as of August 27, 2014, among the Company, Midcap Financial SBIC, LP, a Delaware limited partnership, and such other lenders from time to time party thereto, as amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time (the “Credit Agreement”).

 

 

THIS WARRANT TO PURCHASE STOCK (this “Warrant”) CERTIFIES THAT, for good and valuable consideration, including without limitation the mutual promises contained in the Credit Agreement (defined above),                , a            (together with any registered holder from time to time of this Warrant or any holder of the Shares issuable or issued upon exercise of this Warrant, “Holder”) is entitled to purchase the number of fully paid and nonassessable shares of the class and series of capital stock of the Company at the Warrant Price, all as set forth above or herein below and as adjusted pursuant to the terms of this Warrant, subject to the provisions and upon the terms and conditions set forth in this Warrant.  As used herein, “Share” or “Shares” shall refer to either (i) the shares of stock issuable upon the exercise or conversion of this Warrant and any shares of capital stock into which such shares may be converted or exchanged, or (ii) the authorized or issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of the Company which are of the same class and series as the shares of stock issuable upon the exercise or conversion of this Warrant, in either case as the specific provisions of this Warrant or the context may require.

 

ARTICLE 1.         EXERCISE.

 

1.1          Method of Exercise.  Holder may at any time and from time to time exercise this Warrant, in whole or in part, by delivering a duly completed and executed Notice of Exercise in substantially the form attached as Appendix 1 to the principal office of the Company.  Unless Holder is exercising the conversion right set forth in Section 1.2, Holder shall also deliver to the Company a check, wire transfer (to an account designated by the Company), or other

 



 

form of payment acceptable to the Company for the aggregate Warrant Price for the Shares being purchased.

 

1.2          Conversion Right.  In lieu of exercising this Warrant as specified in Article 1.1, Holder may at any time and from time to time after the Issue Date convert this Warrant, in whole or in part, into a number of Shares determined by dividing (a) the aggregate fair market value of the number of Shares or the securities otherwise issuable upon exercise of this Warrant with respect to which Holder elects to convert this Warrant minus the aggregate Warrant Price of such Shares by (b) the fair market value of one Share.  The “fair market value” of the Shares shall be determined pursuant to Section 1.3.

 

1.3          Fair Market Value.  If the Company’s common stock is traded in a public market and the Shares are common stock, the fair market value of each Share shall be the closing price of a Share reported for the business day immediately before Holder delivers its Notice of Exercise to the Company (or in the instance where the Warrant is exercised immediately prior to the effectiveness of the Company’s initial public offering of its common stock (“IPO”), the “price to public” per share price specified in the final prospectus relating to such offering).  If the Company’s common stock is traded in a public market and the Shares are preferred stock, the fair market value of each Share shall be the closing price of such common stock reported for the business day immediately before Holder delivers its Notice of Exercise to the Company (or in the instance where the Warrant is exercised immediately prior to the effectiveness of an IPO, the initial “price to public” per share price specified in the final prospectus relating to the IPO), in either case, multiplied by the number of shares of the Company’s common stock into which a Share is then convertible.  In the event of an exercise in connection with an Acquisition, the fair market value of a Share shall be the value to be received per Share by all holders of such Shares in such transaction.  If the Company’s common stock is not traded in a public market and other than in the event of an exercise in connection with an Acquisition, the Board of Directors of the Company shall determine the fair market value in its reasonable good faith judgment.

 

1.4          Delivery of Certificate and New Warrant.  Promptly after Holder exercises or converts this Warrant pursuant to Article 1.1 or 1.2, respectively, and, if applicable, the Company receives payment of the aggregate Warrant Price, the Company shall promptly deliver to Holder certificates for the Shares acquired and, if this Warrant has not been fully exercised or converted and has not expired, a new Warrant of like tenor representing the Shares not so acquired.  This Warrant shall be deemed to have been exercised and such certificates deemed issued, and Holder shall become the holder of record of the Shares for all purposes, as of 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) on the date of Holder’s delivery of the exercise notice pursuant to Article 1.1 and payment of the Warrant Price, if applicable.  If an exercise or conversion is to be made in connection with an IPO or Acquisition, such exercise may at the election of Holder be conditioned upon the consummation of such transaction, in which case such exercise shall not be deemed to be effective until immediately prior to the consummation of such transaction.

 

1.5          Replacement of Warrants.  On receipt of evidence reasonably satisfactory to the Company of the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of this Warrant and, in the case of loss, theft or destruction, on delivery of an indemnity agreement reasonably satisfactory in form and amount to the Company or, in the case of mutilation on surrender and cancellation of this Warrant, the Company shall execute and deliver, in lieu of this Warrant, a new warrant of like tenor.

1.6          Treatment of Warrant Upon Acquisition of the Company.

 

1.6.1       “Acquisition”.  For the purpose of this Warrant, “Acquisition” means (a) any sale, license, or other disposition, in each case, of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company, or (b) any reorganization, consolidation, share exchange or merger of the Company with or into another person or entity, or sale of outstanding securities of the Company by the holders thereof, in each case where the holders of the Company’s securities before the transaction beneficially own less than fifty percent (50%) of the outstanding voting securities of the successor, acquiring or surviving person or entity after the transaction.

 

1.6.2       Treatment of Warrant Upon Acquisition.

 

A)            Upon the written request of the Company, Holder agrees that, in the event of an Acquisition that (i) is not described in Section 1.6.1(a), (ii) in which the sole consideration is cash, and (iii) in connection with or as a result of which all holders of the Shares are or have the right to receive solely cash in the same proportions in respect of all of their Shares, then either (a) Holder shall exercise its conversion or purchase right under this Warrant and such exercise will be deemed effective immediately prior to the consummation of such Acquisition, or (b) if Holder elects not to exercise the Warrant, this Warrant will expire upon the consummation of such Acquisition, subject to Section 5.8.  The Company shall provide Holder with written notice of its request relating to the foregoing (together with such reasonable information as Holder may reasonably request in connection with such contemplated Acquisition giving rise to such notice), which notice is to be delivered to Holder not less than ten (10) days prior to the closing of the proposed Acquisition.

 

B)            Upon the written request of the Company, Holder agrees that, in the event of an Acquisition that is described in Section 1.6.1(a) and is an “arms’-length” transaction with a third party that is not an Affiliate (as defined below) of the Company (a “True Asset Sale”), Holder may (a) exercise its conversion or purchase right under this Warrant and such exercise will be deemed effective immediately prior to the consummation of such True Asset Sale, (b) permit this Warrant to continue until the earlier of the Expiration Date or the dissolution and/or liquidation of the Company following the closing of any such True Asset Sale, subject to Section 5.8, or (c) elect to have the terms of Section 1.6.2(D) below apply.  The Company shall provide Holder with written notice of its request relating to the foregoing (together with such reasonable information as Holder may request in connection with such contemplated Acquisition giving rise to such notice), which notice is to be delivered to Holder not less than ten (10) days prior to the closing of the proposed True Asset Sale.

 

C)            Upon the written request of the Company, Holder agrees that, in the event of an Acquisition (i) in which the consideration is a combination of cash and equity securities of the acquirer listed for trading on a U.S. national securities exchange and which may be freely resold pursuant to a resale registration statement or under Rule 144 of the Act without any restriction or limitation (including without limitation volume and manner of sale restrictions), (ii) in connection with or as a result of which all holders of the Shares are or have the right to receive solely cash and/or such securities in the same proportions in respect of all of their Shares, and (iii) on the record date for which the fair market value of one Share (or other securities issuable upon exercise of this Warrant) is greater than the Warrant Price, Holder may (a) exercise its conversion or purchase right under this Warrant and such exercise will be deemed effective immediately prior to the consummation of such Acquisition, or (b) if Holder elects not to exercise the Warrant, this Warrant will expire upon the consummation of such Acquisition, subject to Section 5.8.

 

3



 

D)            Upon the closing of any Acquisition other than those particularly described in subsections (A), (B) and (C) above (or in the case of an Acquisition described in Section 1.6.2(B) above if Holder elects to have the terms of this Section 1.6.2(D) apply), the successor, surviving or acquiring entity shall assume in writing the obligations of this Warrant, including agreements to deliver to Holder in exchange for this Warrant a written instrument issued by the successor, surviving or acquiring entity pursuant to which this Warrant shall thereafter be exercisable for the kind, amount and value of securities, cash, and property as would have been payable for the Shares issuable upon exercise of the unexercised portion of this Warrant had such Shares been outstanding on the record date for the Acquisition and subsequent closing.  The Warrant Price and/or number of Shares shall be adjusted accordingly.

 

E)            Conditional Exercise.  Notwithstanding any other provision hereof, if an exercise of this Warrant is to be made in connection with an Acquisition, such exercise may at the election of Holder be conditioned upon the consummation of such transaction, in which case such exercise shall not be deemed to be effective until immediately prior to the consummation of such transaction.

 

As used herein “Affiliate” shall mean any person or entity that controls, is controlled by or is under common control with any such person or entity, and each of such person’s or entity’s officers, directors, members, managers, joint venturers or partners, as applicable (whether as a result of the ownership of voting securities, by contract or otherwise).

 

1.7          [Omitted]

 

1.8          Replacement Warrants.  Holder shall have the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to cause the Company to exchange this Warrant for a new warrant having substantially similar terms to purchase shares of Senior Preferred Stock as defined in, and subject to the terms and conditions of, the Credit Agreement, and all such terms contained in the Credit Agreement are incorporated by reference herein whether or not the Credit Agreement remains in effect.

 

ARTICLE 2.         ADJUSTMENTS TO THE SHARES.

 

2.1          Stock Dividends, Subdivisions and Combinations.  If the Company declares or pays a dividend on the Shares payable in common stock or other securities, then upon exercise of this Warrant, for each Share acquired, Holder shall receive, without cost to Holder, the total number and kind of securities to which Holder would have been entitled had Holder owned the Shares of record as of the date the dividend occurred.  If the Company subdivides the Shares by reclassification, stock split, split up or otherwise into a greater number of shares or takes any other action which increases the number of shares of any class or series of capital stock into which the Shares are convertible, the number of Shares purchasable hereunder shall be proportionately increased and the Warrant Price shall be proportionately decreased.  If the outstanding Shares are combined or consolidated, by reclassification or otherwise, into a lesser number of shares, the Warrant Price shall be proportionately increased and the number of Shares shall be proportionately decreased.

 

2.2          Reclassification, Exchange, Combinations or Substitution. Upon any reclassification, exchange, substitution, reorganization, merger, consolidation or other event that results in a change of the number and/or class of the underlying securities as to which purchase rights under this Warrant exist, Holder shall be entitled to receive, upon exercise or conversion of this Warrant, the number, amount and kind of securities, money and property that Holder

 

4



 

would have ultimately received upon the completion of such reclassification, exchange, substitution, reorganization, merger, consolidation or other event if this Warrant had been exercised immediately before such reclassification, exchange, substitution, reorganization, merger, consolidation or other event.  Such an event shall include any automatic conversion of the outstanding or issuable securities of the Company of the same class or series as the Shares to common stock pursuant to the terms of the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation (the “Certificate”).  The Company or its successor shall promptly issue to Holder an amendment to this Warrant setting forth the number and kind of such new securities or other property issuable upon exercise or conversion of this Warrant as a result of such reclassification, exchange, substitution, reorganization, merger, consolidation or other event that results in a change of the number and/or class of securities issuable upon exercise or conversion of this Warrant.  The amendment to this Warrant shall provide for adjustments which shall be as nearly equivalent as may be practicable to the adjustments provided for in this Article 2 including, without limitation, adjustments to the Warrant Price and to the number of securities or property issuable upon exercise of the new Warrant.  The provisions of this Article 2.2 shall similarly apply to successive reclassifications, exchanges, substitutions, reorganizations, mergers, consolidations or other events.

 

2.3          Adjustments for Diluting Issuances. The Warrant Price and the number of Shares issuable upon exercise of this Warrant, and the number of shares of common stock or other securities issuable upon conversion of the Shares, shall be subject to adjustment, from time to time in the manner set forth in the Certificate as if the Shares were issued and outstanding on and as of the date of any such required adjustment.  The provisions set forth for the Shares in the Certificate relating to the above in effect as of the Issue Date may not be amended, modified or waived, without the prior written consent of Holder unless such amendment, modification or waiver affects the rights associated with the Shares in the same manner as such amendment, modification or waiver affects the rights associated with all other shares of the same series and class as the Shares.

 

2.4          No Impairment.  Without the prior written consent of Holder, the Company shall not, by amendment of the Certificate, the Stockholder’s Agreement or its by-laws, or through any reorganization, recapitalization, share exchange, transfer of assets, consolidation, merger, dissolution, issuance or sale of securities, or any other voluntary action, avoid or seek to avoid the observance or performance of any of the terms of this Warrant, and shall at all times in good faith assist in carrying out of all such terms and in taking all such action as may be necessary or appropriate to protect Holder’s rights against such avoidance or impairment.

 

2.5          Fractional Shares.  No fractional Shares shall be issuable upon exercise or conversion of this Warrant and the number of Shares to be issued shall be rounded down to the nearest whole Share.  If a fractional share interest arises upon any exercise or conversion of the Warrant, the Company shall eliminate such fractional share interest by paying Holder the amount computed by multiplying the fractional interest by the fair market value of a full Share.

 

2.6          Certificate as to Adjustments.  Upon each adjustment of the Warrant Price or the kind or number of securities issuable under this Warrant pursuant to this Article 2, the Company shall promptly notify Holder in writing, and, at the Company’s expense, promptly compute such adjustment, and furnish Holder with a certificate of its Chief Executive Officer, Corporate Secretary or a senior financial officer setting forth such adjustment and the facts upon which such adjustment is based.  The Company shall, upon written request, furnish Holder a certificate setting forth the Warrant Price and the number and kind of securities issuable under

 

5



 

this Warrant in effect upon the date thereof and the series of adjustments leading to such Warrant Price and such number and kind of securities.

 

ARTICLE 3.         REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND COVENANTS OF THE COMPANY.

 

3.1          Representations and Warranties.  The Company represents and warrants and covenants to Holder as follows:

 

(a)           The Company has all requisite legal and corporate power and authority, and has taken all corporate action on the part of itself, its officers, directors and stockholders necessary, to execute, issue and deliver this Warrant, to issue the Shares issuable upon exercise or conversion of this Warrant and the securities issuable upon conversion of the Shares, and to carry out and perform its obligations under this Warrant, and this Warrant constitutes the legally binding and valid obligation of the Company enforceable in accordance with its terms, except as enforceability may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, or similar laws relating to or affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights, or to principles of equity.

 

(b)           This Warrant has been validly issued and is free of restrictions on transfer other than restrictions on transfer set forth herein and under applicable state and federal securities laws.  All Shares which may be issued upon the exercise of the purchase or conversion right represented by this Warrant, and all securities, if any, issuable upon conversion of the Shares, shall, upon issuance, be duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable, and free of any liens and encumbrances (including preemptive or other similar rights) except for restrictions on transfer provided for herein or under applicable federal and state securities laws.

 

(c)           The execution, delivery, and performance of this Warrant will not result in a violation of, be in conflict with, or constitute a default under, with or without the passage of time or giving of notice, any provision of the Certificate, the Stockholder’s Agreement (as defined in Section 3.3) or the Company’s by-laws, any provision of any judgment, decree, or order to which the Company is a party, by which it is bound, or to which any of its material assets are subject, any contract, obligation, or commitment to which the Company is a party or by which it is bound, or any statute, rule, or governmental regulation applicable to the Company, or the creation of any lien, charge, or encumbrance upon any assets of the Company.

 

(d)           The Company has provided Holder with a capitalization table of the Company, and such capitalization table is complete and accurate as of the date hereof and reflects all outstanding capital stock of the Company and all outstanding warrants, options, conversion privileges, preemptive rights and other rights or agreements to purchase or otherwise acquire or issued any equity securities or convertible debt securities of the Company.  The Company has reserved a sufficient number of Shares for issuance upon the exercise of this Warrant and a sufficient number of shares of the securities issuable upon conversion of the Shares.

 

(e)           The Warrant Price is no greater than the lowest price at which the Company has issued Series B Preferred Stock.

 

3.2          Notice of Certain Events; Information. If the Company proposes at any time (a) to declare any dividend or distribution upon any of its stock, whether in cash, property,

 

6



 

stock, or other securities and whether or not a regular cash dividend; (b) to effect any reclassification or recapitalization of any of its stock; (c) to merge or consolidate with or into any other corporation, or sell, lease, license, or convey all or substantially all of its assets, (d) to approve or participate in any Acquisition or an IPO, (e) to liquidate, dissolve or wind up, or (f) to take any action or to effect any transaction which requires the Company to provide notice to other holders of the Shares, then, in connection with each such event, the Company shall give Holder: (1) at least ten (10) days prior written notice of the date on which a record will be taken for such dividend or distribution (and specifying the date on which the holders of stock will be entitled thereto) or for determining rights to vote, if any, in respect of the matters referred to in (a) above; and (2) in the case of the matters referred to in (b), (c), (d), (e) or (f) above, at least ten (10) days prior written notice of the date when the same will take place (and, if applicable, specifying the date on which the holders of stock will be entitled to exchange their common stock for securities or other property deliverable upon the occurrence of such event).  The Company will also use commercially reasonable efforts to provide such information in its possession as is requested by Holder and as is reasonably necessary to enable Holder to comply with Holder’s accounting or reporting requirements, including without limitation, a capitalization table, to be provided to Holder within thirty (30) days after the end of each fiscal quarter of the Company, and including the per share price of the Company’s equity securities most recently issued prior to the date such capitalization table and indication are so provided; provided, that the Company’s obligations set forth in this sentence shall terminate immediately prior to the Company’s IPO.

 

3.3          Stockholder’s Agreement; No Other Stockholder Rights.  Except as provided in this Warrant and subject to the following provisions of this Section 3.3, Holder will not have any rights as a stockholder of the Company until the exercise of this Warrant.  Effective upon any exercise or conversion of this Warrant, Holder and any permitted transferee of the Warrant or the Shares shall be entitled to all of the rights and benefits provided to all other holders of the Shares pursuant to, and the Company and Holder agree that Holder (and any permitted transferee of the Warrant or the Shares) will execute a counterpart signature page and become a party to (a) the Amended and Restated Investors’ Rights Agreement dated as of October 31, 2013 by and among the Company and certain of its stockholders (as the same may be amended and/or restated from time to time the “Stockholder’s Agreement”), provided that no such amendment shall in any respect restrict Holder’s or such permitted transferee’s right and ability to transfer this Warrant or the Shares to any affiliate of Holder or such permitted transferee and (b) provided Holder or any permitted transferee agrees to become a party to any such agreement entered into hereafter (such agreement not to be unreasonably withheld), any agreement to which holders of the Shares may hereafter become parties and the Shares may become bound (including, without limitation, any stockholders, investor rights, registration rights, right of refusal, voting and co-sale rights or similar agreement); and provided, that (v) Holder and any permitted transferee shall have all of the rights of each other holder of shares under the Stockholder’s Agreement without regard to any applicable minimum share ownership or other requirement on which such rights are conditioned (excluding any observer rights under Section 3.3 of the Stockholder’s Agreement), (w) with respect to Holder and its permitted transferees and assigns, notwithstanding any term or restriction on transfer contained in the Stockholder’s Agreement, Holder and its permitted transferees shall have the unrestricted right to transfer all or any portion of the Shares to any assignee of or purchaser from Holder or its affiliate of their rights under the Credit Agreement (to the extent permitted by the Credit Agreement) or any interest or participation therein, (x) Holder and its permitted transferees may transfer its rights under the Stockholder’s Agreement to any affiliate of Holder or any assignee of or purchaser from Holder or its affiliates of their rights under the Credit Agreement (to the extent permitted by the Credit Agreement) or any interest or participation therein, (y) Holder and its permitted

 

7



 

transferees shall have any purchase, participation, preemptive and registration rights granted to any other holders of the Shares under the Stockholder’s Agreement, and (z) in the event any term, restriction or condition of the Stockholder’s Agreement or any such agreement conflicts with, is inconsistent with or would otherwise prohibit or restrict the exercise of any right of Holder under this Warrant, the terms of this Warrant shall control and this Warrant and Holder shall not be subject to such term, restriction or condition.  As an illustration and not by way of limitation as to the purpose and intent of this Section 3.3, the Company shall grant registration rights to Holder for any Shares acquired by Holder upon exercise or conversion of this Warrant or conversion of such Shares in parity to the registration rights granted to any other holder of the Shares party to the Stockholder’s Agreement.

 

ARTICLE 4.         REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF HOLDER.  Holder represents and warrants to the Company as follows:

 

4.1          Purchase for Own Account.  This Warrant and the securities to be acquired upon exercise of this Warrant by Holder will be acquired for investment for Holder’s account, not as a nominee or agent, and not with a view to the public resale or distribution within the meaning of the Act and Holder has no present intention of selling or engaging in any public distribution of the same except pursuant to a registration or exemption.  Holder also represents that Holder has not been formed for the specific purpose of acquiring this Warrant or the Shares.

 

4.2          Disclosure of Information.  Holder has received or has had full access to all the information it considers necessary or appropriate to make an informed investment decision with respect to the acquisition of this Warrant and its underlying securities.  Holder further has had an opportunity to ask questions and receive answers from the Company regarding the terms and conditions of the offering of this Warrant and its underlying securities and to obtain additional information (to the extent the Company possessed such information or could acquire it without unreasonable effort or expense) necessary to verify any information furnished to Holder or to which Holder has access.

 

4.3          Investment Experience.  Holder understands that the purchase of this Warrant and its underlying securities involves substantial risk.  Holder has experience as an investor in securities of companies in the development stage and acknowledges that Holder can bear the economic risk of Holder’s investment in this Warrant and its underlying securities and has such knowledge and experience in financial or business matters that Holder is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of its investment in this Warrant and its underlying securities and/or has a preexisting personal or business relationship with the Company and certain of its officers, directors or controlling persons of a nature and duration that enables Holder to be aware of the character, business acumen and financial circumstances of such persons.

 

4.4          Accredited Investor Status.  Holder is an “accredited investor” within the meaning of Regulation D promulgated under the Act.

 

4.5          The Act.  Holder understands that this Warrant and the Shares issuable upon exercise or conversion hereof have not been registered under the Act in reliance upon a specific exemption therefrom, which exemption depends upon, among other things, the bona fide nature of Holder’s investment intent as expressed herein.  Holder understands that this Warrant and the Shares issued upon any exercise or conversion hereof must be held indefinitely unless subsequently registered under the Act and qualified under applicable state

(a)           This Warrant and the Shares (and the securities issuable, directly or indirectly, upon conversion of the Shares, if any) shall be imprinted with a legend in substantially the following form:

 

THIS WARRANT AND THE SHARES ISSUABLE HEREUNDER HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “ACT”), OR THE SECURITIES LAWS OF ANY STATE AND, EXCEPT PURSUANT TO THE PROVISIONS OF ARTICLE 5, MAY NOT BE OFFERED, SOLD OR OTHERWISE TRANSFERRED, PLEDGED OR HYPOTHECATED UNLESS REGISTERED UNDER SAID ACT AND APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAW, OR UNLESS SUCH OFFER, SALE OR TRANSFER, PLEDGE OR HYPOTHECATION CAN BE MADE IN COMPLIANCE WITH RULE 144 OF THE ACT, OR UNLESS, IN THE OPINION OF LEGAL COUNSEL IN FORM AND SUBSTANCE REASONABLY SATISFACTORY TO THE ISSUER OF THESE SECURITIES, SUCH OFFER, SALE OR TRANSFER, PLEDGE OR HYPOTHECATION IS EXEMPT FROM REGISTRATION.

BEEN EXTENDED FOR THE PURPOSE OF COMPLYING WITH NASD RULE 2711(F)(4).

 

(b)           Notwithstanding the foregoing, neither this Warrant nor any certificate or instrument evidencing this Warrant or the Shares shall bear, and the Company hereby agrees to remove, within ten (10) days of any written request (together with such evidence or documentation described in the following provisions) by Holder, pursuant to the following provisions of this Section 5.2(b), or not to affix, as applicable, any restrictive or other legend, notice or provision restricting the sale or transfer of this Warrant or the Shares, in each case provided that Holder has provided reasonable evidence to the Company (including any customary broker’s or transferring stockholder’s letters but expressly excluding an opinion of counsel other than with respect to clause (D) below) that: (A) a transfer of this Warrant or the Shares, as applicable, has been made pursuant to SEC Rule 144 (assuming the transferor is not an “affiliate” (as defined in SEC Rule 144) of the Company); (B) the Warrant or the Shares, as applicable, are then eligible for transfer pursuant to SEC Rule 144; (C) a transfer of this Warrant or the Shares has been made for no consideration to an affiliate of Holder or has otherwise been made to any affiliate of Holder who is an “accredited investor” as defined in Regulation D promulgated under the Act, and that is otherwise in compliance with all applicable securities laws; or (D) in connection with any other sale or transfer, provided that upon the request of the Company, such Holder provides the Company with an opinion of counsel to such Holder, in a reasonably acceptable form to the Company, to the effect that either such sale or transfer may be made without registration under the applicable requirements of the Act or that such a legend, notice or provision is not required by, and is not required in order to establish compliance with any provisions of, the Act. For all purposes of Section 1.4, the Company shall not be deemed to have delivered to Holder Shares unless and until the Company shall have fully complied with all of the terms and conditions of this Section 5.2(b) (if removal has been requested by Holder in compliance with this Section 5.2(b)).

 

5.3          Compliance with Securities Laws on Transfer.  This Warrant and the Shares issuable upon exercise of this Warrant (and the securities issuable, directly or indirectly, upon conversion of the Shares, if any) may not be transferred or assigned in whole or in part without compliance with applicable federal and state securities laws by the transferor and the transferee (including, without limitation, the delivery of investment representation letters and, subject to Section 5.2(b), legal opinions reasonably satisfactory to the Company, as reasonably requested by the Company).  The Company shall not require Holder to provide an opinion of counsel if the transfer is to an affiliate of Holder.  Additionally, the Company shall also not require an opinion of counsel if there is no material question as to the availability of Rule 144.

 

5.4          Transfer Procedure.  Subject to the provisions of Article 5.3 and upon and effective immediately as of providing the Company with written notice substantially in the form attached as Appendix 2, Holder and any permitted transferee may transfer all or part of this Warrant or the Shares issuable upon exercise of this Warrant (or the Shares issuable directly or indirectly, upon conversion of the Shares, if any) to any transferee, provided, however, in connection with any such transfer, Holder or such transferee will give the Company notice of the portion of the Warrant being transferred with the name, address and taxpayer identification number of the transferee and, in the case of transfer to transferee who is not an affiliate of the Holder, Holder or such transferee promptly thereafter surrenders this Warrant to the Company for reissuance to the transferee(s) (and Holder if applicable).  The Company may refuse to transfer this Warrant or the Shares to any person who directly competes with the Company, unless, in either case, the stock of the Company is publicly traded.

5.9          Counterparts.  This Warrant may be executed in counterparts, all of which together shall constitute one and the same agreement.

 

5.10        Governing Law.  This Warrant shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware without giving effect to its principles regarding conflicts of law.

COMMON STOCK PURCHASE WARRANT

 

CATABASIS PHARMACEUTICALS, INC.

 

Warrant Shares:

Issue Date:

 

 

(the “Original Issue Date”)

 

This COMMON STOCK PURCHASE WARRANT (the “Warrant”) certifies that, for value received, MIDCAP FINANCIAL SBIC, LP, a Delaware limited partnership, its successors and assigns (together, “Holder”) is entitled, at any time on or after the Issue Date specified above and on or prior to the close of business on                (the “Expiration Date”), to purchase from CATABASIS PHARMACEUTICALS, INC., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), up to              (            ) shares (the “Shares”) of the Common Stock, par value $0.001 per share, of the Company (the “Common Stock”) at a purchase price per share equal to $       (the “Warrant Price”), subject to the provisions and upon the terms and conditions set forth in this Warrant.

 

ARTICLE 1

EXERCISE.

 

1.1          Method of Exercise.  Holder may exercise this Warrant in whole or in part by delivering to the Company a duly executed facsimile or electronic (pdf) copy of a Notice of Exercise in substantially the form attached as Appendix 1 (or by delivery of an original or copy of such Notice of Exercise by any other method permitted for providing notices under Article 5.4).  Unless Holder is exercising the cashless exercise right set forth in Article 1.2, Holder shall, concurrently therewith, also deliver to the Company a certified or bank cashier’s check, wire transfer of immediately available funds (to an account designated by the Company), or other form of payment acceptable to the Company, in the amount of the aggregate Warrant Price for the Shares being purchased. As used herein, “Trading Day” means a day on which the principal Trading Market is open for trading, and “Trading Market” means any of the following markets or exchanges on which the Common Stock is or has most recently been listed or quoted for trading on the date in question:  the NYSE Amex, the Nasdaq Capital Market, the Nasdaq Global

 



 

Market, the Nasdaq Global Select Market, the New York Stock Exchange or the OTC Bulletin Board (or any successors to any of the foregoing).

 

1.2          Cashless Exercise.  This Warrant may be exercised, in whole or in part, by means of a “cashless exercise” in which the Holder shall be entitled to receive a certificate for the number of the Shares equal to the quotient obtained by dividing [(A-B) (X)] by (A), where:

 

(A) = the VWAP on the Trading Day immediately preceding the date on which Holder elects to exercise this Warrant by means of a “cashless exercise,” as set forth in the applicable Notice of Exercise;

 

(B) = the Warrant Price, as adjusted hereunder; and

 

(X) = the number of the Shares that would be issuable upon exercise of this Warrant in accordance with the terms of this Warrant if such exercise were by means of a cash exercise rather than a cashless exercise.

 

As used herein, “VWAP” shall mean, with respect to one Share for any date, the price determined by the first of the following clauses that applies:  (a) if the Common Stock is then listed or quoted on a Trading Market, the volume weighted average price of the Common Stock for such date (or the nearest preceding date) on the Trading Market on which the Common Stock is then listed or quoted as reported by Bloomberg L.P. (based on a Trading Day from 9:30 a.m. (New York City time) to 4:02 p.m. (New York City time)),  (b) if the Common Stock is listed or quoted on the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. OTC Bulletin Board (the “OTC Bulletin Board”) but the OTC Bulletin Board is not a Trading Market, the volume weighted average price of the Common Stock for such date (or the nearest preceding date) on the OTC Bulletin Board, (c) if the Common Stock is not then listed or quoted for trading on the OTC Bulletin Board and if prices for the Common Stock are then reported in the “Pink Sheets” published by Pink OTC Markets, Inc. (or a similar organization or agency succeeding to its functions of reporting prices), the most recent bid price per share of the Common Stock so reported, or (d) in all other cases, the fair market value of one Share as reasonably determined by the Board of Directors of the Company in good faith (provided, that in the event Holder’s cashless exercise under Article 1.2 is exercised or deemed exercised in connection with an Acquisition, such fair market value  shall be determined based upon the cash and fair market value of any securities and other consideration as would have been paid for or in respect of each Share issuable (as of immediately prior to the closing of the Acquisition) upon exercise of this Warrant as if such Share had been issued and outstanding on and as of the closing of such Acquisition).

 

1.3          Delivery of Certificate and New Warrant.  Within five (5) Trading Days after Holder exercises this Warrant and, if applicable, the Company receives payment of the aggregate Warrant Price, the Company shall deliver to Holder certificates for the Shares acquired and, if this Warrant has not been fully exercised and has not expired, a new warrant of like tenor representing the Shares not so acquired.  The Shares shall be deemed to have been issued, and Holder or any other person designated by Holder to be

 

2



 

named therein shall be deemed to have become a holder of record of such Shares for all purposes as of 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) on the date the Warrant shall have been exercised.  If the Company fails to deliver a certificate or certificates for the Shares as provided herein, in addition to any other remedy available to Holder hereunder, at law or in equity, Holder will have the right to rescind the exercise of this Warrant.

 

1.4          Replacement of Warrants.  On receipt of evidence reasonably satisfactory to the Company of the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of this Warrant and, in the case of loss, theft or destruction, on delivery of an indemnity agreement reasonably satisfactory in form and amount to the Company or, in the case of mutilation, on surrender and cancellation of this Warrant, the Company shall execute and deliver, in lieu of this Warrant, a new warrant of like tenor and amount.

 

1.5          Treatment of Warrant Upon Acquisition of the Company.

 

1.5.1       Certain Definitions.  For the purposes of this Warrant, “Acquisition” means (A) any sale, license or any other disposition of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company, or (B) any reorganization, consolidation, or merger of the Company with or into another person or entity, or (C) any sale of outstanding Company securities by holders thereof, whereby, in the case of (B) or (C) above, the holders of the Company’s voting securities before the transaction beneficially own less than a majority of the outstanding voting securities of the successor or surviving entity after the transaction (or, if the surviving entity is a wholly-owned subsidiary of another corporation, such surviving entity’s parent).  As used in this Article 1.5, “Marketable Securities” means securities meeting all of the following requirements: (i) the issuer thereof is then subject to the reporting requirements of Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and is then current in its filing of all required reports and other information under the Act and the Exchange Act; (ii) the class and series of shares or other security of the issuer that would be received by Holder in connection with the Acquisition were Holder to exercise this Warrant on or prior to the closing thereof is then traded on a Trading Market, and (iii) Holder would not be restricted by contract or by applicable federal and state securities laws from  re-selling, within six (6) months and one day in compliance with the federal securities laws, rules and regulations, following the closing of such Acquisition, all of the issuer’s shares and/or other securities that would be received by Holder in such Acquisition were Holder to exercise this Warrant in full on or prior to the closing of such Acquisition.  For purposes of this Article 1.5, “Affiliate” shall mean any person or entity that controls, is controlled by or is under common control with any such person or entity, and each of such person’s or entity’s officers, directors, members, managers, joint venturers or partners, as applicable (whether as a result of the ownership of voting securities, by contract or otherwise).

1.5.2       Treatment of Warrant Upon Acquisition.

 

(A)          Cash or Marketable Securities Acquisition.  In the event of an Acquisition in which (1) the sole consideration is cash, Marketable Securities, or a combination thereof and (2) such consideration is received by the Company’s stockholders in respect of their shares of the Company’s capital stock (including, without limitation, pursuant to the dissolution and liquidation of the Company in connection with or as a result of such Acquisition), Holder may exercise its cashless exercise or purchase right under this Warrant and such exercise will be deemed effective immediately prior to the consummation of such Acquisition; provided, that if the Holder fails to make such election prior to the consummation of the Acquisition, the Warrant will, subject to Article 5.7, expire upon the consummation of such Acquisition.  The Company shall provide Holder with written notice of any proposed Acquisition (which notice shall reasonably identify the parties thereto, the proposed structure thereof, the amount and kind of consideration to be paid in connection therewith and the terms and conditions of payment, the number of shares of capital stock outstanding or issuable upon the exercise of rights then outstanding, and facts as shall be reasonably necessary to indicate the effect of the Acquisition on this Warrant), together with such reasonable information as Holder may request in connection with such contemplated Acquisition giving rise to such notice, which shall be delivered to Holder not less than ten (10) days prior to the closing of the proposed Acquisition. Any exercise of this Warrant after delivery of such notice and prior to the consummation of the Acquisition described in such notice shall be deemed to be an exercise in connection with such Acquisition for purposes of Article 1.2.  If the Acquisition described in such notice is terminated or abandoned prior to the consummation thereof, the Company shall provide prompt notice thereof and, unless Holder advises the Company in a written notice that it elects to reaffirm the exercise, any purported exercise of this Warrant in connection with such proposed Acquisition shall be null and void.

 

(B)          Asset Sale.  In the event of an Acquisition that is an arm’s length sale or license of all or substantially all of the Company’s assets (and only its assets) to a third party that is not an Affiliate of the Company and to which 1.5.2(A) above does not apply (a “True Asset Sale”), Holder may, at its option, (1) exercise its rights under this Warrant and such exercise will be deemed effective immediately prior to the consummation of such True Asset Sale, or (2) elect to have the terms of Section 1.5.2(C) below apply; provided, that if Holder fails to exercise or make such election prior to the consummation of the Acquisition the Warrant will continue until the Expiration Date if the Company continues as a going concern following the closing of any such True Asset Sale.  The Company shall provide Holder with written notice of any proposed True Asset Sale (which notice shall identify the parties thereto, the proposed structure thereof, the amount and kind of consideration to be paid in connection therewith and the terms and conditions of payment, the number of shares

 

4


 

of capital stock outstanding or issuable upon the exercise of rights then outstanding, and facts as shall be reasonably necessary to indicate the effect of the True Asset Sale on this Warrant), together with such reasonable information as Holder may request in connection with such True Asset Sale giving rise to such notice, which shall be delivered to Holder not less than ten (10) days prior to the closing of the proposed True Asset Sale.  Any exercise of this Warrant after delivery of such notice and prior to the consummation of the True Asset Sale described in such notice shall be deemed to be an exercise in connection with such True Asset Sale for purposes of Article 1.2.  If the True Asset Sale described in such notice is terminated or abandoned prior to the consummation thereof, the Company shall provide prompt notice thereof and any purported exercise of this Warrant in connection with such proposed True Asset Sale shall be null and void.

 

(C)          Assumption of Warrant.  Upon the closing of any Acquisition other than as particularly described in subsection (A) or (B) above, the surviving or successor entity shall assume this Warrant and the obligations of the Company hereunder, and this Warrant shall, from and after such closing, be exercisable for the same class, number and kind of securities, cash and other property as would have been paid for or in respect of the Shares issuable (as of immediately prior to such closing) upon exercise in full hereof as if such Shares had been issued and outstanding on and as of such closing, at an aggregate Warrant Price equal to the aggregate Warrant Price in effect as of immediately prior to such closing (with the Warrant Price being appropriately adjusted and apportioned based upon such securities, cash and other property in order to protect the economic value of this Warrant immediately prior to the closing of such Acquisition); and subject to further adjustment thereafter from time to time in accordance with the provisions of this Warrant.  The Company shall cause any surviving or successor entity in an Acquisition in which the Company is not the surviving or successor entity to assume in writing all of the obligations of the Company under this Warrant prior to the closing of such Acquisition, including agreements to deliver to Holder in exchange for this Warrant a security of such surviving or successor entity evidenced by a written instrument issued by the surviving or successor entity substantially similar in form to this Warrant and exercisable as provided herein (without regard to any limitations on the exercise of this Warrant).  Upon the closing of such an Acquisition, the surviving or successor entity shall succeed to, and be substituted for, and shall assume all of the obligations of the Company under this Warrant.

 

(D)          Conditional Exercise.  Notwithstanding any other provision hereof, if an exercise of this Warrant is to be made in connection with an Acquisition, such exercise may at the election of Holder be conditioned upon the consummation of such transaction, in which case such exercise

 

5



 

shall not be deemed to be effective until immediately prior to the consummation of such transaction.

 

ARTICLE 2         
ADJUSTMENTS TO THE SHARES.

 

2.1          Stock Dividends, Splits, Etc.  If the Company declares or pays a dividend on the outstanding shares of the Common Stock payable in additional shares of the Common Stock or other securities, then upon exercise of this Warrant, for each Share acquired, Holder shall receive, without cost to Holder, the total number and kind of securities to which Holder would have been entitled had Holder owned the Shares of record as of the date the dividend occurred.  If the Company subdivides the outstanding shares of the Common Stock by reclassification or otherwise into a greater number of shares, the number of Shares purchasable hereunder shall be proportionately increased and the Warrant Price shall be proportionately decreased.  If the outstanding shares of the Common Stock are combined or consolidated, by reclassification or otherwise, into a lesser number of shares, the Warrant Price shall be proportionately increased and the number of Shares shall be proportionately decreased.

 

2.2          Reclassification, Exchange, Conversion or Substitution.  Upon any reclassification, exchange, conversion, substitution or similar event affecting the outstanding shares of the Common Stock, Holder shall be entitled to receive, upon exercise of this Warrant, the number and kind of securities and property that Holder would have received for the Shares if this Warrant had been exercised in full immediately before such reclassification, exchange, conversion, substitution or similar event, at an aggregate Warrant Price not exceeding the aggregate Warrant Price in effect as of immediately prior thereto.  The Company or its successor shall promptly issue to Holder a certificate pursuant to Article 2.6 hereof setting forth the number, class and series or other designation of such new securities or other property issuable upon exercise of this Warrant as a result of such reclassification, exchange, conversion, substitution or similar event.  The provisions of this Article 2.2 shall similarly apply to successive reclassifications, exchanges, conversions, substitutions, and similar events.

 

2.3          Pro Rata Distributions. In addition to any adjustments pursuant to Articles 2.1 and 2.2 above, the Holder, as the holder of this Warrant, shall be entitled to receive such dividends paid and distributions of any kind made to the holders of Common Stock of the Company to the same extent as if the Holder had exercised this Warrant into Common Stock (without regard to any limitations on exercise herein or elsewhere and without regard to whether or not a sufficient number of shares are authorized and reserved to effect any such exercise and issuance) and had held such shares of Common Stock on the record date for such dividends and distributions. Payments under the preceding sentence shall be made concurrently with the dividend or distribution to the holders of Common Stock.

 

2.4          No Impairment.  The Company shall not, by amendment of its Certificate of Incorporation or through any reorganization, recapitalization, transfer of assets, consolidation, merger, share exchange, dissolution, issue, sale of securities, closing of its

 

6



 

stockholder books and records, or any other voluntary action, avoid or seek to avoid the observance or performance of any of the terms to be observed or performed under this Warrant by the Company, but shall at all times in good faith assist in carrying out of all the provisions of this Article 2 and in taking all such actions as may be necessary or appropriate to protect Holder’s rights under this Warrant against impairment.

 

2.5          Fractional Shares.  No fractional shares shall be issued upon the exercise of this Warrant. As to any fraction of a share which the Holder would otherwise be entitled to purchase upon such exercise, the Company shall, at its election, either pay a cash adjustment in respect of such final fraction in an amount equal to such fraction multiplied by the Warrant Price or round up to the next whole share.

 

2.6          Certificate as to Adjustments.  Upon each adjustment of the Warrant Price, the Common Stock and/or number of Shares, or upon the occurrence of any transaction or event described in this Article 2, the Company shall promptly notify Holder in writing, and, at the Company’s expense, promptly compute such adjustment, and furnish Holder with a certificate of its Chief Financial Officer setting forth such adjustment and the facts upon which such adjustment is based. The Company shall, upon written request, furnish Holder a certificate setting forth the Warrant Price, Common Stock and number of Shares in effect upon the date thereof and the series of adjustments leading to such Warrant Price, Common Stock and number of Shares.

 

ARTICLE 3         
REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES, AND COVENANTS OF THE COMPANY.

 

3.1          Representations and Warranties.  The Company represents and warrants to, and agrees with, Holder as follows:

 

3.1.1       Corporate Existence. The Company is a corporation duly organized, validly existing and in good standing in its jurisdiction of incorporation, has the corporate power and authority to own and operate its properties and to carry on its business as now conducted and as proposed to be conducted, and is qualified as a foreign corporation in all jurisdictions where such qualification is required.
