Exhibit 6.10

 

SKY440, INC.

FORM OF STOCK ISSUANCE AGREEMENT

 

AGREEMENT made as of this ____ day of ______________________, _____ by and between Sky440, Inc., a Delaware corporation, and _____________________, Participant in the Corporation’s 2018 Stock Option/Stock Issuance Plan.

 

All capitalized terms in this Agreement shall have the meaning assigned to them in this Agreement or in the attached Appendix.

 

A.    PURCHASE OF SHARES

 

1.     Purchase. Participant hereby purchases ___________________ shares of Common Stock (the “Purchased Shares”) pursuant to the provisions of the Stock Issuance Program at the purchase price of $_____________ per share (the “Purchase Price”); it being understood that the issuance of any stock under this Agreement shall be subject to the terms and conditions of the Shareholders Agreement between Participant and the Corporation.

 

2.     Payment. Concurrently with the delivery of this Agreement to the Corporation, Participant shall pay the Purchase Price for the Purchased Shares in cash or cash equivalent.

 

3.     Stockholder Rights. Until such time as the Corporation exercises the First Refusal Right, Participant (or any successor in interest) shall have all stockholder rights (including voting, dividend and liquidation rights) with respect to the Purchased Shares, subject, however, to the transfer restrictions of Articles B and C.

 

B.    SECURITIES LAW COMPLIANCE

 

1.     Restricted Securities. The Purchased Shares have not been registered under the 1933 Act and are being issued to Participant in reliance upon the exemption from such registration provided by SEC Rule 701 for stock issuances under compensatory benefit plans such as the Plan. Participant hereby confirms that Participant has been informed that the Purchased Shares are restricted securities under the 1933 Act and may not be resold or transferred unless the Purchased Shares are first registered under the Federal securities laws or unless an exemption from such registration is available. Accordingly, Participant hereby acknowledges that Participant is prepared to hold the Purchased Shares for an indefinite period and that Participant is aware that SEC Rule 144 issued under the 1933 Act which exempts certain resales of unrestricted securities is not presently available to exempt the resale of the Purchased Shares from the registration requirements of the 1933 Act.

 

2.     Disposition of Purchased Shares. Participant shall make no disposition of the Purchased Shares (other than a Permitted Transfer) unless and until there is compliance with all of the following requirements:

 

(i)     Participant shall have provided the Corporation with a written summary of the terms and conditions of the proposed disposition.

 

(ii)     Participant shall have complied with all requirements of this Agreement applicable to the disposition of the Purchased Shares.

 

(iii)    Participant shall have provided the Corporation with written assurances, in form and substance satisfactory to the Corporation, that (a) the proposed disposition does not require registration of the Purchased Shares under the 1933 Act or (b) all appropriate action necessary for compliance with the registration requirements of the 1933 Act or any exemption from registration available under the 1933 Act (including Rule 144) has been taken.

 

The Corporation shall not be required (i) to transfer on its books any Purchased Shares which have been sold or transferred in violation of the provisions of this Agreement or (ii) to treat as the owner of the Purchased Shares, or otherwise to accord voting, dividend or liquidation rights to, any transferee to whom the Purchased Shares have been transferred in contravention of this Agreement.

 

 

 

 1 

 

 

3.     Restrictive Legends. The stock certificates for the Purchased Shares shall be endorsed with one or more of the following restrictive legends:

 

“The shares represented by this certificate have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933. The shares may not be sold or offered for sale in the absence of (a) an effective registration statement for the shares under such Act, (b) a “no action” letter of the Securities and Exchange Commission with respect to such sale or offer or (c) satisfactory assurances to the Corporation that registration under such Act is not required with respect to such sale or offer.”

 

“The shares represented by this certificate are subject to certain rights of first refusal granted to the Corporation and accordingly may not be sold, assigned, transferred, encumbered, or in any manner disposed of except in conformity with the terms of a written agreement dated __________, ______, between the Corporation and the registered holder of the shares (or the predecessor in interest to the shares). A copy of such agreement is maintained at the Corporation’s principal corporate offices.”

 

C.    TRANSFER RESTRICTIONS

 

1.     Restriction on Transfer. Except for any Permitted Transfer, Participant shall not transfer, assign, encumber or otherwise dispose of any of the Purchased Shares in contravention of the First Refusal Right or the Market Stand-Off.

 

2.     Transferee Obligations. Each person (other than the Corporation) to whom the Purchased Shares are transferred by means of a Permitted Transfer must, as a condition precedent to the validity of such transfer, acknowledge in writing to the Corporation that such person is bound by the provisions of this Agreement and that the transferred shares are subject to (i) the First Refusal Right and (ii) the Market Stand-Off, to the same extent such shares would be so subject if retained by Participant.

 

3.     Market Stand-Off.

 

(a)   In connection with any underwritten public offering by the Corporation of its equity securities pursuant to an effective registration statement filed under the 1933 Act, including the Corporation’s initial public offering, Owner shall not sell, make any short sale of, loan, hypothecate, pledge, grant any option for the purchase of, or otherwise dispose or transfer for value or otherwise agree to engage in any of the foregoing transactions with respect to, any Purchased Shares without the prior written consent of the Corporation or its underwriters. Such restriction (the “Market Stand-Off”) shall be in effect for such period of time from and after the effective date of the final prospectus for the offering as may be requested by the Corporation or such underwriters. In no event, however, shall such period exceed 180 days, and the Market Stand-Off shall in no event be applicable to any underwritten public offering effected more than two years after the effective date of the Corporation’s initial public offering.

 

(b)   Owner shall be subject to the Market Stand-Off provided and only if the officers and directors of the Corporation are also subject to similar restrictions.

 

(c)   Any new, substituted or additional securities which are by reason of any Recapitalization or Reorganization distributed with respect to the Purchased Shares shall be immediately subject to the Market Stand-Off, to the same extent the Purchased Shares are at such time covered by such provisions.

 

(d)   In order to enforce the Market Stand-Off, the Corporation may impose stop-transfer instructions with respect to the Purchased Shares until the end of the applicable stand-off period.

 

D.    SPECIAL TAX ELECTION

 

1.     Section 83(b) Election . Under Code Section 83, the excess of the Fair Market Value of the Purchased Shares on the date any forfeiture restrictions applicable to such shares lapse over the Purchase Price paid for those shares will be reportable as ordinary income on the lapse date. Participant may elect under Code Section 83(b) to be taxed at the time the Purchased Shares are acquired, rather than when and as such Purchased Shares cease to be subject to such forfeiture restrictions. Such election must be filed with the Internal Revenue Service within 30 days after the date of this Agreement. Even if the Fair Market Value of the Purchased Shares on the date of this Agreement equals the Purchase Price paid (and thus no tax is payable), the election must be made to avoid adverse tax consequences in the future.

THE FORM FOR MAKING THIS ELECTION IS ATTACHED AS EXHIBIT I HERETO. PARTICIPANT UNDERSTANDS THAT FAILURE TO MAKE THIS FILING WITHIN THE APPLICABLE 30 DAY PERIOD WILL RESULT IN THE RECOGNITION OF ORDINARY INCOME AS THE FORFEITURE RESTRICTIONS LAPSE.

 

2.     FILING RESPONSIBILITY. PARTICIPANT ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT IS PARTICIPANT’S SOLE RESPONSIBILITY, AND NOT THE CORPORATION’S, TO FILE A TIMELY ELECTION UNDER CODE SECTION 83(b), EVEN IF PARTICIPANT REQUESTS THE CORPORATION OR ITS REPRESENTATIVES TO MAKE THIS FILING ON HIS OR HER BEHALF.

 

E.     GENERAL PROVISIONS

 

1.     Assignment. The Corporation may assign the First Refusal Right to any person or entity selected by the Board, including (without limitation) one or more stockholders of the Corporation.

 

2.     At Will Employment. Nothing in this Agreement or in the Plan shall confer upon Participant any right to continue in Service for any period of specific duration or interfere with or otherwise restrict in any way the rights of the Corporation (or any Parent or Subsidiary employing or retaining Participant) or of Participant, which rights are hereby expressly reserved by each, to terminate Participant’s Service at any time for any reason, with or without cause.

 

3.     Notices. Any notice required to be given under this Agreement shall be in writing and shall be deemed effective upon personal delivery or upon deposit in the U.S. mail, registered or certified, postage prepaid and properly addressed to the party entitled to such notice at the address indicated below such party’s signature line on this Agreement or at such other address as such party may designate by ten (10) days advance written notice under this paragraph to all other parties to this Agreement.

 

4.     No Waiver. The failure of the Corporation in any instance to exercise the First Refusal Right shall not constitute a waiver of any other rights of first refusal that may subsequently arise under the provisions of this Agreement or any other agreement between the Corporation and Participant. No waiver of any breach or condition of this Agreement shall be deemed to be a waiver of any other or subsequent breach or condition, whether of like or different nature.

 

5.     Cancellation of Shares. If the Corporation shall make available, at the time and place and in the amount and form provided in this Agreement, the consideration for the Purchased Shares to be repurchased in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement, then from and after such time, the person from whom such shares are to be repurchased shall no longer have any rights as a holder of such shares (other than the right to receive payment of such consideration in accordance with this Agreement). Such shares shall be deemed purchased in accordance with the applicable provisions hereof, and the Corporation shall be deemed the owner and holder of such shares, whether or not the certificates therefor have been delivered as required by this Agreement.

 

F.     MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS

 

1.     Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of California without resort to that State’s conflict-of-laws rules.

4.     Agreement is Entire Contract. This Agreement constitutes the entire contract between the parties hereto with regard to the subject matter hereof. This Agreement is made pursuant to the provisions of the Plan and shall in all respects be construed in conformity with the terms of the Plan.

 

5.     Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original, but all of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument.
