Re:Registration Statement on Form S-8

 

Ladies and Gentlemen:

 

We have acted as counsel to Sysorex, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), in connection with the registration of 2,000,000 shares (the “Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.00001 per share (“Common Stock”), that may be offered and sold under the Company’s 2018 Equity Incentive Plan (the “Plan”), pursuant to a registration statement on Form S-8 (the “Registration Statement”) filed on April 15, 2019.

 

For purposes of rendering this opinion, we have examined the Plan, the Registration Statement, the Articles of Incorporation and the Bylaws of the Company, as amended or restated, the proceedings and other actions of the Company that provide for the issuance of the Shares, and such other documents and matters as we have deemed necessary for purposes of rendering this opinion. We have assumed the authenticity of all documents submitted to us as originals, the conformity to originals of all documents submitted to us as certified or photostatic copies and the authenticity of the originals of all documents submitted to us as copies. We have also assumed the legal capacity of all natural persons who have executed documents examined by us, the genuineness of all signatures on all documents examined by us, the authority of such persons signing on behalf of the parties thereto other than the Company and the due authorization, execution and delivery of all documents by the parties thereto other than the Company. In rendering the opinion set forth below, we have assumed that certificates evidencing the Shares will be signed by the authorized officers of the Company and registered by the transfer agent and registrar and will conform to the specimen certificate for the Common Stock. In addition, we have assumed that the resolutions of the Company’s Board of Directors or its applicable committee authorizing the Company to issue and deliver the Shares will be in full force and effect at all times at which such Shares are issued and delivered by the Company, and that the Company will take no action inconsistent with such resolutions. 

 

Based upon and subject to the foregoing, it is our opinion that the Shares, when issued, delivered and paid for in accordance with the Plan and in the manner described in the Registration Statement and the related prospectus, will be validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable.
