REVENUE SHARING AND NOTE PURCHASE AGREEMENT

AND AMENDMENT TO SECURITY AGREEMENT AND WARRANT

 

This FOURTH AMENDMENT AND CONSENT TO AMENDED AND RESTATED REVENUE SHARING AND NOTE PURCHASE AGREEMENT (this “Fourth Amendment”) is dated as of August 19, 2016 among Inventergy Global, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Parent”), Inventergy, Inc. (“Owner”, and, collectively, the “Company”), DBD Credit Funding, LLC as collateral agent (the “Collateral Agent”), and the Revenue Participants and Note Purchasers (collectively, the “Purchasers”) thereto, and amends that certain Amended and Restated Revenue Sharing and Note Purchase Agreement between the Company, the Collateral Agent and the Purchasers originally dated as of October 1, 2014 and amended and restated as of February 25, 2015, and further amended as of October 30, 2015, as of November 30, 2015 and as of March 1, 2016 (such Agreement, as amended hereby and as may be further amended, supplemented or otherwise modified and in effect from time to time, the “Agreement”). Capitalized terms used and not otherwise defined in this Fourth Amendment shall have the meanings specified in the Agreement or, as applicable, the Subscription Agreement (as defined in the Agreement).

 

WHEREAS, the Company has requested (i) that no amortization payments shall be due and payable until the last Business Day of September 2016, (ii) that the Liquidity maintenance requirement of not less than One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) be waived through September 30, 2016, and (iii) that the Company be permitted to use up to $250,000 of Monetization Revenues to make certain payments as specified herein; and

 

WHEREAS, the Purchasers are prepared to agree to the Company’s requests, subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein.

 

NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto hereby agree as follows, effective as of the date first above written, subject to the satisfaction of the conditions set forth below:

 

Section 1. Amendments to Agreement. The Agreement shall be amended as follows:

 

1.01.         Amortization. Section 2.2.4.3 of the Agreement shall be amended and restated as follows:

 

 

 

 

“2.2.4.3 Amortization. Commencing on the last Business Day of September, 2016, the Company shall make monthly amortization payments on the Notes in an amount, as of the date of such payment, equal to (x) the then outstanding principal amount divided by (y) the number of months left until the Maturity Date. The amount of the monthly amortization payment shall be calculated by the Company, and provided to the Collateral Agent for review, initially prior to the first such payment and recalculated following any optional or mandatory prepayment”.

 

1.02.         Adjusted Waterfall. Section 2.9 shall be amended and restated as follows:1

 

“2.9    Proceeds of Patent Monetization. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, including, without limitation, Section 2.2.4.4 and Section 2.3 which are superseded by this Section 2.9 , in the event of a sale or license whether exclusive or non exclusive, of all or a portion of the Patents or any other transaction that gives rise to Monetization Revenues (each a “Patent Realization Event”) the proceeds of any such transaction, as and when received by the Company, shall be applied as follows:

 

i)         100% of the Patent Realization Event Net Proceeds from any such transaction shall be applied to the Note Obligations (which shall include any principal, interest, termination fees, legal fees or other expenses of the Collateral Agent in connection with such transaction) until paid in full.

 

ii) Following the payment in full of the Note Obligations, 75% of the remaining Patent Realization Event Net Proceeds shall be applied to the Revenue Stream until the amount applied to the Revenue Stream pursuant to this clause (ii) totals $5 million.

 

iii)      Following the application of $5 million to the Revenue Stream pursuant to clause (ii), 50% of the remaining Patent Realization Event Net Proceeds shall be applied to the Revenue Stream until the amount applied to the Revenue Stream pursuant to this clause (iii) totals, (x) if paid in full on or before September 30, 2016, $3,500,000, (y) if not paid in full on or before September 30, 2016 but paid in full on or before December 31, 2016, $4,500,000, and (z) if not paid in full on or before December 31, 2016, $6,284,538;

 

 

 

1 Modifications are shown through underlining. In addition, deleted cap on amounts received from *** pre April 2016 as moot.

 

 

 

 

provided, that notwithstanding the foregoing clauses (ii) and (iii), in the event of an acceleration of the Revenue Stream, 100% of the Patent Realization Event Net Proceeds shall be applied to the Revenue Stream until the Purchasers have received $11,284,538 on account of the Revenue Stream.

 

For the avoidance of doubt, proceeds of any Disposition of any Patents, or of any equity interest in Owner, shall constitute Monetization Revenues and shall be distributed in accordance with this Section 2.9. Prior to the occurrence of an Event of Default, the Company may also elect to satisfy the Note Obligations and Revenue Stream from sources other than Patent Realization Event Net Proceeds and may also accelerate the payments provided for above so that greater percentages of the Patent Realization Event Net Proceeds are applied to satisfy the Revenue Stream. For the sake of clarity, and consistent with clauses (i) and (ii) above, the Revenue Stream can be fully satisfied and the Company’s obligations with respect to the Revenue Stream fully discharged if, prior to an Event of Default, either (i) on or before September 30, 2016, the Note Obligations have been fully paid and the Purchasers have received $8,500,000 on account of the Revenue Stream, or (ii) on or before December 31, 2016, the Note Obligations have been fully paid and the Purchasers have received $9,500,000 on account of the Revenue Stream, or (iii) thereafter, the Note Obligations have been fully paid and the Purchasers have received $11,284,538 on account of the Revenue Stream.

 

For purposes of this Section 2.9, the “Patent Realization Event Net Proceeds” of a transaction, shall mean the greater of (A) the total gross Monetization Revenues of such transaction, less the following (i) any brokers’ commissions that have been approved, in advance, by the Collateral Agent, (ii) the Company’s reasonable documented legal fees and expenses directly related to such transaction; provided, for the avoidance of doubt, that no legal fees or expenses incurred prior to December 1, 2015 shall be deducted from such gross proceeds, less (iii) solely in the case of a Patent Sale of the Panasonic and Huawei Patents, Contractual Obligations of the Company to certain third parties as detailed below and (B) 60% of the total gross Monetization Revenues of such transaction. Specifically, in the case of Panasonic patents, such third party Contractual Obligations consist of 20% of gross transaction proceeds owed to Panasonic, 2% of “*** Net Monetization Revenues” owed to *** (with such term defined in the agreement between the Company and ***), and 4% of “*** Net Monetization Revenues”, up to a pre-determined limit, owed to *** (with such term defined in the engagement letter between the Company and ***). In the case of Huawei patents, such third party Contractual Obligations consist of 20% of “Huawei Net Monetization Revenues” owed to Huawei (with such term defined in the Patent Purchase Agreement between the Company and Huawei), 10% of gross transaction proceeds, up to a pre-determined limit, owed to ***, 2% of “*** Net Monetization Revenues” owed to *** (with such term defined in the agreement between the Company and ***), and 4% of “*** Net Monetization Revenues”, up to a pre-determined limit, owed to *** (with such term defined in the engagement letter between the Company and ***).

 

 

 

 

By way of illustration, assuming (i) that the gross proceeds of a sale of some or all of the Panasonic Patents totals $50,000,000, (ii) that the broker’s commission is owed pursuant to the ***, (iii) that the Note Obligations (including expenses of the Collateral Agent) total $10,906,465 as of such date, which consist of $10,052,500 of principal outstanding and $853,965 of termination fees (PIK interest has been excluded for this example only), (iv) that the legal fees and disbursements of the Company in connection with such transaction totals $100,000, (v) that allowable deductible expenses for purposes of calculating third party Contractual Obligations under the Company’s agreements with third parties are $2,000,000 in all cases, and (vi) that clause (iii)(z) above applies, the proceeds of such sale shall be distributed as follows:

 

$50,000,000 would generate a commission due to *** under the *** of (0.1 x $1,000,000) + (0.075 x $4,000,000) + (0.05 x $45,000,000) = $2,650,000.

 

Patent Realization Event Net Proceeds would be calculated as:

 

The greater of:

 

(A)

 

Gross Proceeds  $50,000,000 
Less *** fees  $(2,650,000)
Less Company legal fees  $(100,000)

(Note: Contractual Obligations to *** if  this was a Huawei/Nokia sale would be 10% of gross transaction proceeds up to a total of approx.. ***based on previously deferred legal billings))

Less Contractual Obligation to Panasonic  $(10,000,000)
Less Contractual Obligation to ***  $(960,000)
(Or to *** if this was a Huawei/Nokia sale)     
Less Contractual Obligation to ***  $(336,600)
Net Proceeds  $35,953,400 

 

and

 

(B) $30,000,000 (60% of $50,000,000)

 

Patent Realization Event Net Proceeds equals $35,953,400.

 

 

 

 

i) $10,906,465 is applied to the Note Obligations, leaving $25,046,935 of Patent Realization Event Net Proceeds;

 

ii) Of the next $6,666,667 in Patent Realization Event Net Proceeds, $5,000,000 is applied to the Revenue Stream and $1,666,667 to the Company, leaving $18,380,268 in remaining Patent Realization Event Net Proceeds;

 

iii) Of the remaining $18,380,268, $6,284,538 is applied to the Revenue Stream, leaving $12,095,730, which will be paid to the Company.

 

The result of the foregoing distribution of $50,000,000, after payment of $2,750,000 in transaction expenses, is a total of $22,191,003 being paid to the Purchasers, $13,762,397 being paid to the Company, and $11,296,600 being paid to satisfy third party Contractual Obligations.”

 

1.03.         Minimum Liquidity. Section 6.10 of the Agreement shall be amended and restated as follows:

 

“6.10 Minimum Liquidity. The Company shall maintain not less than (x) One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) in unrestricted cash and Cash Equivalents (“Liquidity”) from the Closing Date through November 1, 2015, (y) Two Hundred Thousand Dollars ($200,000) in Liquidity from March 1, 2016 through June 30, 2016, and (z) One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) in Liquidity from and after September 30, 2016, in each case not including amounts on deposit in the Cash Collateral Account except to the extent the Company is entitled to such amounts and shall provide weekly certifications demonstrating the Company’s Liquidity. Commencing September 30, 2016, such certifications demonstrating the Company’s Liquidity shall be provided by 5:00 p.m. PST on each Friday (or, if Friday is a bank holiday, on the immediately preceding day that is not a bank holiday), shall show Liquidity on that day and shall be accompanied by evidence satisfactory to the Collateral Agent.”

 

1.01.         Events of Default

 

(i)          Section 7.1.1 shall be amended and restated as follows:

 

“7.1.1 Payment. The Company shall fail to make any payment due hereunder when such payment is due and payable.”

“7.1.2 Other Covenants. The Company shall (x) fail to perform or observe any of the covenants or agreements contained in Section 6.2, Section 6.6, Section 6.10, 6.14(b), 6.15, 6.16 or 6.17 or (y) fail to perform or observe any of the covenants or agreements in Article VI or elsewhere in this Agreement or in any other Document (other than those covenants or agreements specified in clause (x) above) and, solely to the extent that such failure occurs and is cured prior to September 30, 2016, such failure continues for thirty days after the earlier of (i) written notice to the Company by the Collateral Agent or any Purchaser of such failure or (ii) knowledge of the Company of such failure; provided, for the avoidance of doubt, that no cure period applies to any covenants or agreements specified in clause (x) above or to any failure of compliance on or after September 30, 2016, and provided further that no such cure period shall apply to breaches of any of Sections 6.7 through Section 6.8, 6.9.2 or to Section 6.11 that either are intentional by the Company or where, in the reasonable judgment of the Majority Purchasers, a material delay in the exercise of remedies or the taking of curative action is reasonably likely to result in material harm to the value of the Patents or the success of the monetization efforts.”

 

1.02.         Acceleration. Section 7.2 of the Agreement shall be amended by:

 

(a)          replacing the phrase “If one or more Events of Default shall occur and be continuing” in the first two lines of such Section 7.2 with the phrase “If one or more Events of Default shall occur (and, if prior to September 30, 2016, are continuing)”; and

 

(b)          amending and restating Sections 7.2.1, 7.2.2, and 7.2.3 of the Agreement as follows:

 

“7.2.1 Specific Performance; Exercise of Rights.

Following and during the continuance of any Event of Default, the Company shall not (w) make any Disposition of any Patents or of any equity interests in Owner, (x) shall not commence any new litigation or take any other material action in furtherance of any Monetization Activities, (y) engage any broker or other professional in connection with any sale or other Disposition of any Patent or rights therein, or enter into any arrangements that provide any party with a right to payment based on the Company’s receipt of Monetization Revenues (including any contingency fee arrangements) or (z) grant any Lien or other rights with respect to any Patents, including, without limitation, non exclusive licensing arrangements, exclusive licensing arrangements or sales of Patents or interests therein, in each case, without the prior written consent of the Majority Purchasers, which consent may be granted or withheld in their sole discretion;

 

 

 

 

“7.2.2 Acceleration. The Majority Note Purchasers may, by notice in writing to the Company, declare the remaining unpaid amount of the then-outstanding Notes, together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon, to be immediately due and payable; provided that if a Bankruptcy Event of Default pursuant to Section 7.1.8 shall have occurred, such amounts shall automatically become immediately due and payable; and provided, that in such event, the Company shall immediately and unconditionally be obligated to pay, as liquidated damages with respect to the Revenue Stream, the maximum amount of the Revenue Stream in full, in cash, i.e., $11,284,538 less any amounts previously applied to the Revenue Stream;

For the avoidance of doubt, once an Event of Default has occurred, all of the rights and remedies of the Collateral Agent and the Purchasers arising on account of, and with respect to, such Event of Default shall be fully available and exercisable until the payment in full of all Obligations, regardless of any action by the Company to remedy the circumstances that gave rise to such Event of Default, and regardless of any subsequent action by the Company. No such action by the parties hereto shall prevent the occurrence of, or effect a waiver with respect to, any subsequent Event of Default or impair any rights of the parties hereto upon the occurrence thereof.”

Section 4. Acknowledgments. The Company hereby acknowledges, confirms and agrees that the obligations, liabilities and indebtedness of each of them to the Purchasers for the performance of the Company’s obligations under the Agreement and the other Documents, and for the payment of the Note Obligations and the Revenue Stream are unconditionally owing to the Purchasers without offset, defense or counterclaim of any kind, nature or description whatsoever, other than any limitations on the Purchasers’ recourse that are expressly provided for in the Agreement, and that, upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, the Collateral Agent and the Purchasers shall have the immediate entitlement to take any action with respect to the Collateral that is otherwise permissible under applicable law and consistent with the Documents. Each of the amendments to the Agreement (including the Fourth Amendment) and the 2016 Warrant shall be a “Document” for purposes of the Agreement.

Section 7. Representations and Warranties.

 

7.01.         Representations and Warranties of Parent and the Company. Parent and the Company hereby make the following representations and warranties to the Purchasers, in each case except to the extent otherwise disclosed in Parent’s SEC Reports:

 

(a)          Subsidiaries. All of the direct and indirect subsidiaries of Parent are described in Parent’s SEC Reports or the schedules thereto or the documents incorporated therein. Except as set forth on Schedule A hereto, Parent owns, directly or indirectly, all of the capital stock or other equity interests of each of its Subsidiaries free and clear of any Liens, and all of the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of each Subsidiary are validly issued and are fully paid, non-assessable and free of preemptive and similar rights to subscribe for or purchase securities.

 

 

 

 

(b)          Organization and Qualification. Parent and each of its Subsidiaries is an entity duly incorporated or otherwise organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the jurisdiction of its incorporation or organization, with the requisite power and authority to own and use its properties and assets and to carry on its business as currently conducted. Neither Parent nor any Subsidiary is in violation nor default of any of the provisions of its respective certificate or articles of incorporation, bylaws or other organizational or charter documents, except to the extent that any such default could not have or reasonably be expected to result in: (i) a material adverse effect on the legality, validity or enforceability of any Document, (ii) a material adverse effect on the results of operations, assets, prospects, business or condition (financial or otherwise) of the Company and the Subsidiaries, taken as a whole, or (iii) a material adverse effect on Parent’s ability to perform in any material respect on a timely basis its obligations under any Document (any of (i), (ii) or (iii), a “Material Adverse Effect”), provided, that none of the following alone shall be deemed, in and of itself, to constitute a Material Adverse Effect: (i) a change in the market price or trading volume of the Common Stock or (ii) changes in general economic conditions or changes affecting the industry in which Parent operates generally (as opposed to Company-specific changes) so long as such changes do not have a materially disproportionate effect on Parent. Each of Parent and the Subsidiaries is duly qualified to conduct business and is in good standing as a foreign corporation or other entity in each jurisdiction in which the nature of the business conducted or property owned by it makes such qualification necessary, except where the failure to be so qualified or in good standing, as the case may be, could not have or reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect and no Proceeding has been instituted in any such jurisdiction revoking, limiting or curtailing or seeking to revoke, limit or curtail such power and authority or qualification.

Parent and the Company each has the requisite corporate power and authority to enter into and to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Fourth Amendment and to deliver the Fourth Amendment and the 2016 Warrant and otherwise to carry out its obligations hereunder and thereunder.

(d)          No Conflicts. The execution, delivery and performance of the Fourth Amendment and the 2016 Warrant, and the consummation by it of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby do not and will not (i) conflict with or violate any provision of Parent’s or any Subsidiary’s certificate or articles of incorporation, bylaws or other organizational or charter documents, or (ii) conflict with, or constitute a default (or an event that with notice or lapse of time or both would become a default) under, result in the creation of any Lien upon any of the properties or assets of Parent or any Subsidiary, or give to others any rights of termination, amendment, acceleration or cancellation (with or without notice, lapse of time or both) of, any agreement, credit facility, debt or other instrument (evidencing a Company or Subsidiary debt or otherwise) or other understanding to which Parent or any Subsidiary is a party or by which any property or asset of Parent or any Subsidiary is bound or affected, or (iii) conflict with or result in a violation of any law, rule, regulation, order, judgment, injunction, decree or other restriction of any court or governmental authority to which Parent or a Subsidiary is subject (including federal and state securities laws and regulations), or by which any property or asset of Parent or a Subsidiary is bound or affected; except in the case of each of clauses (ii) and (iii), such as could not have or reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect.

Neither Parent nor the Company is required to obtain any consent, waiver, authorization or order of, give any notice to, or make any filing or registration with, any court or other federal, state, local or other governmental authority or other Person in connection with their execution, delivery and performance of the 2016 Warrant or this Fourth Amendment, other than (i) the notice and/or application(s) to the Nasdaq Stock Market for the listing of the shares issuable upon exercise of the 2016 Warrant (the Warrant and the 2016 Warrant are referred to, collectively, as the “Warrants” and the shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants are collectively referred to as the “Warrant Shares”) for trading thereon in the time and manner required thereby, (ii) the filing of Form D with the Commission and (iii) such filings as are required to be made under applicable state securities laws (collectively, the “Required Approvals”).

 

(f)          Issuance of the 2016 Warrant and the Warrant Shares. The 2016 Warrant is, and upon exercise of the Warrant and/or the 2016 Warrant, as applicable the issuance of the Warrant Shares will be, duly authorized and duly and validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable, free and clear of all Liens imposed by Parent.

Neither Parent nor any of its Subsidiaries has issued any capital stock since Parent’s most recently filed periodic report under the Exchange Act, other than pursuant to the exercise of employee stock options under Parent’s stock option plans or the issuance of shares of Common Stock to employees, or pursuant to the conversion and/or exercise of Common Stock Equivalents outstanding as of the date of the most recently filed periodic report under the Exchange Act. No Person has any right of first refusal, preemptive right, right of participation, or any similar right to participate in the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents except as has been duly waived. Except as a result of the purchase and sale of the Shares or as disclosed in the SEC Reports, there are no outstanding options, warrants, scrip rights to subscribe to, calls or commitments of any character whatsoever relating to, or securities, rights or obligations convertible into or exercisable or exchangeable for, or giving any Person any right to subscribe for or acquire, any shares of Common Stock, or contracts, commitments, understandings or arrangements by which Parent or any Subsidiary is or may become bound to issue additional shares of Common Stock or Common Stock Equivalents. The issuance and sale of the Warrant Shares will not obligate Parent or any of its Subsidiaries to issue shares of Common Stock or other securities to any Person (other than the Purchaser) and will not result in a right of any holder of securities of Parent or any of its Subsidiaries to adjust the exercise, conversion, exchange or reset price under any of such securities. All of the outstanding shares of capital stock of Parent and its Subsidiaries are validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable, have been issued in compliance with all federal and state securities laws, and none of such outstanding shares was issued in violation of any preemptive rights or similar rights to subscribe for or purchase securities. No further approval or authorization of any stockholder, the Board of Directors or third party is required for the issuance and sale of the 2016 Warrant or the Warrant Shares. Except as disclosed in the SEC Reports or in any exhibit thereto, or as set forth on Schedule A hereto. there are no stockholders agreements, voting agreements or other similar agreements with respect to Parent’s or any of its Subsidiaries’ capital stock to which Parent is a party or, to the knowledge of Parent, between or among any of Parent’s stockholders.

 

 

 

 

(h)          SEC Reports; Financial Statements. Parent has filed all reports, schedules, forms, statements and other documents required to be filed by Parent under the Securities Act and the Exchange Act, including pursuant to Section 13(a) or 15(d) thereof, for the three (3) years preceding the date hereof (or such shorter period as Parent was required by law or regulation to file such material) (the foregoing materials, including the exhibits thereto and documents incorporated by reference therein, being collectively referred to herein as the “SEC Reports”) on a timely basis or has received a valid extension of such time of filing and has filed any such SEC Reports prior to the expiration of any such extension. As of their respective dates, the SEC Reports complied in all material respects with the requirements of the Securities Act and the Exchange Act, as applicable, and none of the SEC Reports, when filed, contained any untrue statement of a material fact or omitted to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary in order to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading. Parent has never been an issuer subject to Rule 144(i) under the Securities Act. The financial statements of Parent included in the SEC Reports comply in all material respects with applicable accounting requirements and the rules and regulations of the Commission with respect thereto as in effect at the time of filing. Such financial statements have been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles applied on a consistent basis during the periods involved (“GAAP”), except as may be otherwise specified in such financial statements or the notes thereto and except that unaudited financial statements may not contain all footnotes required by GAAP, and fairly present in all material respects the financial position of Parent and its consolidated Subsidiaries as of and for the dates thereof and the results of operations and cash flows for the periods then ended, subject, in the case of unaudited statements, to normal, immaterial, year-end audit adjustments.

 

(i)          Material Changes; Undisclosed Events, Liabilities or Developments. Since the date of the latest audited financial statements included within the SEC Reports, except as specifically disclosed in a subsequent SEC Report filed prior to the date hereof, (i) there has been no event, occurrence or development that has had or that could reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect, (ii) Parent has not incurred any liabilities (contingent or otherwise) other than (A) trade payables and accrued expenses incurred in the ordinary course of business consistent with past practice and (B) liabilities not required to be reflected in Parent’s financial statements pursuant to GAAP or disclosed in filings made with the Commission, (iii) Parent has not altered its method of accounting, (iv) Parent has not declared or made any dividend or distribution of cash or other property to its stockholders or purchased, redeemed or made any agreements to purchase or redeem any shares of its capital stock and (v) Parent has not issued any equity securities to any officer, director or Affiliate, except pursuant to existing Company stock option plans. Parent does not have pending before the Commission any request for confidential treatment of information. Except for the issuance of the 2016 Warrant and the Warrant Shares or as disclosed in the SEC Reports, no event, liability, fact, circumstance, occurrence or development has occurred or exists or is reasonably expected to occur or exist with respect to Parent or its Subsidiaries or their respective business, properties, operations, assets or financial condition that would be required to be disclosed by Parent under applicable securities laws at the time this representation is made or deemed made that has not been publicly disclosed at least one (1) Trading Day prior to the date that this representation is made.

 

(j)          Litigation. There is no action, suit, inquiry, notice of violation, proceeding or investigation pending or, to the knowledge of Parent, threatened against or affecting Parent, any Subsidiary or any of their respective properties before or by any court, arbitrator, governmental or administrative agency or regulatory authority (federal, state, county, local or foreign) (collectively, an “Action”) which (i) adversely affects or challenges the legality, validity or enforceability of any of the Documents or the Warrant Shares or (ii) could, if there were an unfavorable decision, have or reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect. Neither Parent nor any Subsidiary, nor, to the knowledge of Parent, any director or officer thereof, is or has been the subject of any Action involving a claim of violation of or liability under federal or state securities laws or a claim of breach of fiduciary duty. There has not been, and to the knowledge of Parent, there is not pending or contemplated, any investigation by the Commission involving Parent or, to the knowledge of Parent, any current or former director or officer of Parent. The Commission has not issued any stop order or other order suspending the effectiveness of any registration statement filed by Parent or any Subsidiary under the Exchange Act or the Securities Act.

 

 

 

 

(k)          Labor Relations. No strike, work stoppage, slow down or other labor dispute exists or, to the knowledge of Parent, is imminent with respect to any of the employees of Parent, which could reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect. None of Parent’s or its Subsidiaries’ employees is a member of a union that relates to such employee’s relationship with Parent or such Subsidiary, and neither Parent nor any of its Subsidiaries is a party to a collective bargaining agreement, and Parent and its Subsidiaries believe that their relationships with their employees are good. No executive officer, to the knowledge of Parent, is, or is now expected to be, in violation of any material term of any employment contract, confidentiality, disclosure or proprietary information agreement or non-competition agreement, or any other contract or agreement or any restrictive covenant in favor of any third party, and the continued employment of each such executive officer does not subject Parent or any of its Subsidiaries to any liability with respect to any of the foregoing matters. Parent and its Subsidiaries are in compliance with all U.S. federal, state, local and foreign laws and regulations relating to employment and employment practices, terms and conditions of employment and wages and hours, except where the failure to be in compliance could not, individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

 

(l)          Compliance. Neither Parent nor any Subsidiary: (i) is in default under or in violation of (and no event has occurred that has not been waived that, with notice or lapse of time or both, would result in a default by Parent or any Subsidiary under), nor has Parent or any Subsidiary received notice of a claim that it is in default under or that it is in violation of, any indenture, loan or credit agreement or any other agreement or instrument to which it is a party or by which it or any of its properties is bound (whether or not such default or violation has been waived), (ii) is in violation of any judgment, decree or order of any court, arbitrator or governmental body or (iii) is or has been in violation of any statute, rule, ordinance or regulation of any governmental authority, including without limitation all foreign, federal, state and local laws relating to taxes, environmental protection, occupational health and safety, product quality and safety and employment and labor matters, except in each case as could not have or reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect.

 

(m)          Regulatory Permits. Parent and the Subsidiaries possess all certificates, authorizations and permits issued by the appropriate federal, state, local or foreign regulatory authorities necessary to conduct their respective businesses as currently conducted as described in the SEC Reports, except where the failure to possess such permits could not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect (“Material Permits”), and neither Parent nor any Subsidiary has received any notice of proceedings relating to the revocation or modification of any Material Permit.

 

(n)          Title to Assets. Except as set forth on Schedule A hereto, Parent and the Subsidiaries have good and marketable title in fee simple to all real property owned by them and good and marketable title in all personal property owned by them that is material to the business of Parent and the Subsidiaries, in each case free and clear of all Liens, except for Liens as do not materially affect the value of such property and do not materially interfere with the use made and proposed to be made of such property by Parent and the Subsidiaries and Liens for the payment of federal, state or other taxes, the payment of which is neither delinquent nor subject to penalties. Any real property and facilities held under lease by Parent and the Subsidiaries are held by them under valid, subsisting and enforceable leases with which Parent and the Subsidiaries are in compliance, except where the failure to be in compliance would not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

 

 

 

 

(o)          Intellectual Property Rights. Parent and the Subsidiaries have, or have rights to use, all patents, patent applications, trademarks, trademark applications, service marks, trade names, trade secrets, inventions, copyrights, licenses and other intellectual property rights and similar rights necessary for use in connection with their respective businesses as described in the SEC Reports and which the failure to so have could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect (collectively, the “Intellectual Property Rights”). Neither Parent nor any Subsidiary has received, since the date of the latest audited financial statements included within the SEC Reports, a written notice of a claim or otherwise has any knowledge that the Intellectual Property Rights violate or infringe upon the rights of any Person, except as would not have a Material Adverse Effect. To the knowledge of Parent, all such Intellectual Property Rights are enforceable. Parent and its Subsidiaries have taken reasonable security measures to protect the secrecy and confidentiality of all of their intellectual properties, except where failure to do so could not, individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

 

(p)          Insurance. Parent and the Subsidiaries are insured by insurers of recognized financial responsibility against such losses and risks and in such amounts as are prudent and customary in the businesses in which Parent and the Subsidiaries are engaged, including, but not limited to, directors and officers insurance coverage. Neither Parent nor any Subsidiary has any reason to believe that it will not be able to renew its existing insurance coverage as and when such coverage expires or to obtain similar coverage from similar insurers as may be necessary to continue its business without a significant increase in cost.

 

(q)          Transactions With Affiliates and Employees. Except as set forth in the SEC Reports, none of the officers or directors of Parent and, to the knowledge of Parent, none of the employees of Parent is presently a party to any transaction with Parent or any Subsidiary (other than for services as employees, officers and directors), including any contract, agreement or other arrangement providing for the furnishing of services to or by, providing for rental of real or personal property to or from, or otherwise requiring payments to or from any officer, director or such employee or, to the knowledge of Parent, any entity in which any officer, director, or any such employee has a substantial interest or is an officer, director, trustee or partner, in each case in excess of $120,000 other than for (i) payment of salary or consulting fees for services rendered, (ii) reimbursement for expenses incurred on behalf of Parent and (iii) other employee benefits, including stock option agreements under any stock option plan of Parent.

 

(r)          Sarbanes-Oxley; Internal Accounting Controls. Parent is in compliance with any and all applicable requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 that are effective as of the date hereof, and any and all applicable rules and regulations promulgated by the Commission thereunder that are effective as of the date hereof, except where the failure to be in compliance would not have a Material Adverse Effect. Parent and the Subsidiaries maintain a system of internal accounting controls sufficient to provide reasonable assurance that: (i) transactions are executed in accordance with management’s general or specific authorizations, (ii) transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP and to maintain asset accountability, (iii) access to assets is permitted only in accordance with management’s general or specific authorization, and (iv) the recorded accountability for assets is compared with the existing assets at reasonable intervals and appropriate action is taken with respect to any differences. Parent has established disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e)) for Parent and designed such disclosure controls and procedures to ensure that information required to be disclosed by Parent in the reports it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the Commission’s rules and forms. Parent’s certifying officers have evaluated the effectiveness of Parent’s disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by Parent’s most recently filed periodic report under the Exchange Act (such date, the “Evaluation Date”). Parent presented in its most recently filed periodic report under the Exchange Act the conclusions of the certifying officers about the effectiveness of the disclosure controls and procedures based on their evaluations as of the Evaluation Date. Since the Evaluation Date, there have been no changes in Parent’s internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in the Exchange Act) that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, Parent’s internal control over financial reporting.

 

 

 

 

(s)          Certain Fees. No brokerage or finder’s fees or commissions are or will be payable by Parent to any broker, financial advisor or consultant, finder, placement agent, investment banker, bank or other Person with respect to the transactions contemplated by the Fourth Amendment. The Purchaser shall have no obligation with respect to any fees or with respect to any claims made by or on behalf of other Persons for fees of a type contemplated in this Section that may be due in connection with the transactions contemplated by the Fourth Amendment.

 

(t)          Investment Company. Parent is not, and is not an Affiliate of, and immediately after issuance of the 2016 Warrant or the Warrant Shares, will not be or be an Affiliate of, an “investment company” within the meaning of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended. Parent shall conduct its business in a manner so that it will not become an “investment company” subject to registration under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended.

 

(u)          Registration Rights. Except as described in the SEC Reports, no Person has any right to cause Parent to effect the registration under the Securities Act of any securities of Parent.

 

(v)         Listing and Maintenance Requirements. The Common Stock is registered pursuant to Section 12(b) or 12(g) of the Exchange Act, and Parent has taken no action designed to, or which to its knowledge is likely to have the effect of, terminating the registration of the Common Stock under the Exchange Act nor has Parent received any notification that the Commission is contemplating terminating such registration. Parent has not, in the 12 months preceding the date hereof, received notice from any Trading Market on which the Common Stock is or has been listed or quoted to the effect that Parent is not in compliance with the listing or maintenance requirements of such Trading Market. Parent is, and has no reason to believe that it will not in the foreseeable future continue to be, in compliance with all such listing and maintenance requirements.

 

(w)          Application of Takeover Protections. Parent and the Board of Directors have taken all necessary action, if any, in order to render inapplicable any control share acquisition, business combination, poison pill (including any distribution under a rights agreement) or other similar anti-takeover provision under Parent’s certificate of incorporation (or similar charter documents) or the laws of its state of incorporation that is or could become applicable to the Purchaser as a result of the Purchaser and Parent fulfilling their obligations or exercising their rights under the Documents, including without limitation as a result of Parent’s issuance of the Warrant Shares and the Purchaser’ ownership of the Warrant Shares.

 

 

 

 

(x)          Disclosure. All of the disclosure furnished by or on behalf of Parent to the Purchaser regarding Parent, its business and the transactions contemplated hereby is true and correct and does not contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact necessary in order to make the statements made therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading. The press releases disseminated by Parent during the twelve (12) months preceding the date of this Agreement taken as a whole and taken together with the SEC Reports do not contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary in order to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made and when made, not misleading. Parent acknowledges and agrees that no Purchaser makes or has made any representations or warranties with respect to the transactions contemplated hereby other than those specifically set forth herein.

 

(y)          Solvency. Based on the consolidated financial condition of Parent as of the date hereof, (i) the fair saleable value of Parent’s assets exceeds the amount that will be required to be paid on or in respect of Parent’s existing debts and other liabilities (including known contingent liabilities) as they mature, (ii) Parent’s assets do not constitute unreasonably small capital to carry on its business as now conducted and as proposed to be conducted including its capital needs taking into account the particular capital requirements of the business conducted by Parent, and projected capital requirements and capital availability thereof, and (iii) the current cash and cash equivalents of Parent, together with the proceeds Parent would receive, were it to liquidate all of its assets, after taking into account all anticipated uses of the cash, would be sufficient to pay all amounts on or in respect of its liabilities when such amounts are required to be paid. Parent does not intend to incur debts beyond its ability to pay such debts as they mature (taking into account the timing and amounts of cash to be payable on or in respect of its debt). Parent has no knowledge of any facts or circumstances which lead it to believe that it will file for reorganization or liquidation under the bankruptcy or reorganization laws of any jurisdiction within one year from the date hereof. The SEC Reports set forth as of the date hereof all outstanding secured and unsecured Indebtedness of Parent or any Subsidiary, or for which Parent or any Subsidiary has commitments. For the purposes of this Agreement, “Indebtedness” means (x) any liabilities for borrowed money or amounts owed in excess of $100,000 (other than trade accounts payable incurred in the ordinary course of business), (y) all guaranties, endorsements and other contingent obligations in respect of indebtedness of others, whether or not the same are or should be reflected in Parent’s balance sheet (or the notes thereto), except guaranties by endorsement of negotiable instruments for deposit or collection or similar transactions in the ordinary course of business; and (z) the present value of any lease payments in excess of $100,000 due under leases required to be capitalized in accordance with GAAP. Neither Parent nor any Subsidiary is in default with respect to any Indebtedness after giving effect to the Fourth Amendment.

 

(z)          Tax Status. Except for matters that would not, individually or in the aggregate, have or reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect, Parent and each Subsidiary (i) has made or filed all United States federal and state income and all foreign income and franchise tax returns, reports and declarations required by any jurisdiction to which it is subject, (ii) has paid all taxes and other governmental assessments and charges that are material in amount, shown or determined to be due on such returns, reports and declarations and (iii) has set aside on its books provision reasonably adequate for the payment of all material taxes for periods subsequent to the periods to which such returns, reports or declarations apply. There are no unpaid taxes in any material amount claimed to be due by the taxing authority of any jurisdiction, and the officers of Parent or of any Subsidiary know of no basis for any such claim.

 

 

 

 

(aa)         Foreign Corrupt Practices. Neither Parent, nor to the knowledge of Parent after reasonable inquiry, any agent or other person acting on behalf of Parent, has (i) directly or indirectly, used any funds for unlawful contributions, gifts, entertainment or other unlawful expenses related to foreign or domestic political activity, (ii) made any unlawful payment to foreign or domestic government officials or employees or to any foreign or domestic political parties or campaigns from corporate funds, (iii) failed to disclose fully any contribution made by Parent (or made by any person acting on its behalf of which Parent is aware) which is in violation of law, or (iv) violated in any material respect any provision of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977, as amended (the “FCPA”).

 

(bb)         Acknowledgment. Parent acknowledges and agrees that the Purchaser is acting solely in the capacity of an arm’s length purchaser with respect to the Documents and the transactions contemplated thereby. Parent further acknowledges that Purchaser is not acting as a financial advisor or fiduciary of Parent (or in any similar capacity) with respect to the Documents and the transactions contemplated thereby and any advice given by any Purchaser or any of their respective representatives or agents in connection with the Documents and the transactions contemplated thereby is merely incidental to the Purchaser’ acquisition of the 2016 Warrant. Parent further represents to each Purchaser that Parent’s decision to enter into this Fourth Amendment and the other Documents has been based solely on the independent evaluation of the transactions contemplated hereby by Parent and its representatives.

 

(cc)         Acknowledgement Regarding Purchaser’s Trading Activity. Anything in this Agreement or elsewhere herein to the contrary notwithstanding, it is understood and acknowledged by Parent that: (i) Purchaser has not been asked by Parent to agree, nor has any Purchaser agreed, to desist from purchasing or selling, long and/or short, securities of Parent, or “derivative” securities based on securities issued by Parent or to hold the Warrant Shares for any specified term; (ii) past or future open market or other transactions by Purchaser, specifically including, without limitation, Short Sales or “derivative” transactions, before or after the closing of this or future private placement transactions, may negatively impact the market price of Parent’s publicly-traded securities; (iii) Purchaser, and counter-parties in “derivative” transactions to which Purchaser is a party, directly or indirectly, presently may have a “short” position in the Common Stock, and (iv) Purchaser shall not be deemed to have any affiliation with or control over any arm’s length counter-party in any “derivative” transaction. Parent further understands and acknowledges that (y) Purchaser may engage in hedging activities at various times during the period that the Warrant Shares are outstanding and (z) such hedging activities (if any) could reduce the value of the existing stockholders’ equity interests in Parent at and after the time that the hedging activities are being conducted. 

 

(dd)         Regulation M Compliance.  Parent has not, and to its knowledge no one acting on its behalf has, (i) taken, directly or indirectly, any action designed to cause or to result in the stabilization or manipulation of the price of any security of Parent to facilitate the sale or resale of any of the Warrant Shares, (ii) sold, bid for, purchased, or, paid any compensation for soliciting purchases of, any of the Warrant Shares, or (iii) paid or agreed to pay to any Person any compensation for soliciting another to purchase any other securities of Parent, other than, in the case of clauses (ii) and (iii), compensation paid to Parent’s placement agent in connection with the placement of the Warrant Shares.

 

(ee)         Office of Foreign Assets Control. Neither Parent nor, to Parent’s knowledge, any director, officer, agent, employee or affiliate of Parent is currently subject to any U.S. sanctions administered by the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Treasury Department (“OFAC”).

 

 

 

 

(ff)         Money Laundering. The operations of Parent are and have been conducted at all times in compliance with applicable financial record-keeping and reporting requirements of the Currency and Foreign Transactions Reporting Act of 1970, as amended, applicable money laundering statutes and applicable rules and regulations thereunder (collectively, the “Money Laundering Laws”), and no action, suit or proceeding by or before any court or governmental agency, authority or body or any arbitrator involving Parent with respect to the Money Laundering Laws is pending or, to the knowledge of Parent, threatened.

 

(gg)         Issuance of 2016 Warrant. The Fourth Amendment and the issuance of the 2016 Warrant is a transaction exempt from registration under the Securities Act pursuant to Section 3(a)(9) thereof.

 

7.02.         Representations and Warranties of the Purchaser. Each Purchaser hereby represents and warrants as of the date hereof to Parent and the Company as follows:

 

(a)          Organization; Authority. Purchaser is either an individual or an entity duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the jurisdiction of its organization with full right, corporate or partnership power and authority to enter into and to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Fourth Amendment and otherwise to carry out its obligations hereunder and thereunder. The execution and delivery of this Fourth Amendment and performance by such Purchaser of the transactions contemplated by this Fourth Amendment have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate, partnership, limited liability company or similar action, as applicable, on the part of the Purchaser. Each Document to which it is a party has been duly executed by the Purchaser, and when delivered by the Purchaser in accordance with the terms hereof, will constitute the valid and legally binding obligation of the Purchaser, enforceable against it in accordance with its terms, except: (i) as limited by general equitable principles and applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium and other laws of general application affecting enforcement of creditors’ rights generally, (ii) as limited by laws relating to the availability of specific performance, injunctive relief or other equitable remedies and (iii) insofar as indemnification and contribution provisions may be limited by applicable law.

 

(b)          Certain Transactions and Confidentiality. Other than consummating the transactions contemplated hereunder, Purchaser has not, nor has any Person acting on behalf of or pursuant to any understanding with Purchaser, directly or indirectly executed any purchases or sales, including Short Sales, of the securities of Parent during the period commencing as of the time that Purchaser first received a term sheet (written or oral) as of Parent or any other Person representing Parent setting forth the material terms of the transactions contemplated hereunder and ending immediately prior to the execution hereof. Other than to other Persons party to this Agreement, Purchaser has maintained the confidentiality of all disclosures made to it in connection with this transaction (including the existence and terms of this transaction). Notwithstanding the foregoing, for avoidance of doubt, nothing contained herein shall constitute a representation or warranty, or preclude any actions, with respect to the identification of the availability of, or securing of, available shares to borrow in order to effect Short Sales or similar transactions in the future.

 

 

 

 

Section 8. Conformed Agreement; Miscellaneous. Attached to this Amendment as Exhibit 2 is a conformed copy of the Agreement, giving effect to all Amendments through this Fourth Amendment. Except as specifically amended or waived above, the Agreement and the other Documents shall remain unchanged and in full force and effect and are hereby ratified and confirmed. The execution, delivery and effectiveness of this Fourth Amendment shall not operate as a waiver of any right, power or remedy of the Collateral Agent or any Purchaser under the Agreement or any Document, nor constitute a waiver of any provision of the Agreement or any Document, except as specifically provided by this Fourth Amendment. This Fourth Amendment is a Document, and a part of the Agreement, for all purposes of the Agreement. This Fourth Amendment may be executed in any number of counterparts, and by different parties hereto on separate counterpart signature pages, and all such counterparts taken together shall be deemed to constitute one and the same instrument. Delivery of a counterpart signature page by facsimile transmission or by e-mail transmission of an Adobe portable document format file (also known as a “PDF” file) shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart signature page. Section headings used in this Fourth Amendment are for reference only and shall not affect the construction of this Fourth Amendment.

3.Registration of Transfers. The Company shall register the transfer of any portion of this Warrant in the Warrant Register, upon surrender of this Warrant, with the Form of Assignment attached hereto as Appendix A duly completed and signed, to the Company at its address specified herein. Upon any such registration and transfer, a new warrant in substantially the form of a Warrant (any such new warrant, a “New Warrant”), evidencing the portion of this Warrant so transferred shall be issued to the transferee and a New Warrant evidencing the remaining portion of this Warrant not so transferred, if any, shall be issued to the transferring Holder. The acceptance of the New Warrant by the transferee thereof shall be deemed the acceptance by such transferee of all of the rights and obligations of a holder of a Warrant.

 

4.Exercise and Duration of Warrant.

 

4.1.   This Warrant shall be exercisable, either in its entirety or for a portion of the number of Warrant Shares, by the registered Holder at any time and from time to time from and after the initial Exercise Date (as defined below) to and including the Expiration Date. At 5:00 P.M. New York City time on the Expiration Date, the portion of this Warrant not exercised prior thereto shall be and become void and of no value, and the Holder hereof shall have no right to purchase any additional Warrant Shares hereunder.

 

4.2.   A Holder may exercise this Warrant by delivering to the Company, in accordance with Section 13, this Warrant, together with (i) an exercise notice, substantially in the form attached hereto as Appendix B (the “Exercise Notice”), appropriately completed and duly signed, and (ii) (A) payment of the Exercise Price for the number of Warrant Shares as to which this Warrant is being exercised pursuant to a Cash Exercise (as set forth in Section 4(c) below) or (B) if available pursuant to Section 4(d) below, by notifying the Company that this Warrant is being exercised pursuant to a Cashless Exercise (as set forth in Section 4(d) below), and the date such items are received by the Company is an “Exercise Date.” Execution and delivery of an Exercise Notice in respect of less than all of the Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise of this Warrant shall result in the cancellation of the original Warrant and issuance of a New Warrant evidencing the right to purchase the remaining number of Warrant Shares. For clarity, the Holder may exercise any or all for the remaining portion of this Warrant notwithstanding that the Company has not returned a physical New Warrant certificate to the Holder, by delivering a further Exercise Notice and tendering payment of the Exercise Price (or Cashless Exercise notice) as aforesaid.

 

 -3- 

 

 

4.3.   Cash Exercise. In the event the Holder has elected to pay the Exercise Price in cash, it shall pay the Exercise Price by certified bank check payable to the order of the Company or by wire transfer of immediately available funds in accordance with the Company’s instructions (a “Cash Exercise”).

 

4.4.   Cashless Exercise. Commencing November 18, 2016, Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, the Holder may, in its sole discretion, exercise this Warrant in whole or in part and, in lieu of making the cash payment otherwise contemplated to be made to the Company upon such exercise in payment of the Exercise Price, elect instead to receive upon such exercise the “Net Number” of shares of Common Stock determined according to the following formula (a “Cashless Exercise”):

 

 

For purposes of the foregoing formula,

 

A = the total number of shares with respect to which this Warrant is then being exercised.

 

B = the VWAP per share of the Common Stock (as reported by Bloomberg) on the Trading Day immediately preceding the date of the Exercise Notice.

 

C = the Exercise Price then in effect for the applicable Warrant Shares at the time of such exercise.

 

“VWAP” means, 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 national securities exchange, the daily volume weighted average price of the Common Stock for such date (or the nearest preceding date) on the exchange 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 not then listed or quoted for trading on a national securities exchange and if prices for the Common Stock are then reported by 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 (c) in all other cases, the fair market value of a share of Common Stock as determined by an independent appraiser selected in good faith by the Holders of a majority in interest of the Warrants then outstanding and reasonably acceptable to the Company, the fees and expenses of which shall be paid by the Company

 

4.5.   Except as otherwise provided for herein, this Warrant shall not entitle the Holder to any voting rights or other rights as a stockholder of the Company by virtue of the ownership hereof.

 

5.Delivery of Warrant Shares.

 

5.1.   Upon exercise of this Warrant, the Company shall promptly (but in no event later than three Trading Days after the Exercise Date) issue or cause to be issued and deliver or cause to be delivered to the Holder, in such name or names as the Holder may designate, a certificate for the Warrant Shares issuable upon such exercise (the “Certificate”), which, if issued pursuant to a Cash Exercise at a time when a registration statement covering the resale of the Warrant Shares that are the subject of the Exercise Notice by the Holder pursuant to the Securities Act is not available for such resale may bear a restrictive legend if required pursuant to Section 4.1 of the Subscription Agreement between the Company and the initial Holder dated October 1, 2014 (the “Subscription Agreement”) . The Holder, or any Person so designated by the Holder to receive the Warrant Shares, shall be deemed to have become holder of record of such Warrant Shares as of the Exercise Date.

 

 -4- 

 

 

5.2.   Warrant Shares issued pursuant to a Cash Exercise may only be transferred in accordance with Section 4.1 of the Subscription Agreement.

 

5.3.   This Warrant is exercisable, either in its entirety or, from time to time, for a portion of the number of Warrant Shares. Upon surrender of this Warrant following one or more partial exercises, the Company shall issue or cause to be issued, at its expense, a New Warrant evidencing the right to purchase the remaining number of Warrant Shares.

 

5.4.   To the extent permitted by law, the Company’s obligations to issue and deliver Warrant Shares in accordance with the terms hereof are absolute and unconditional, irrespective of any action or inaction by the Holder to enforce the same, any waiver or consent with respect to any provision hereof, the recovery of any judgment against any Person or any action to enforce the same, or any setoff, counterclaim, recoupment, limitation or termination, or any breach or alleged breach by the Holder or any other Person of any obligation to the Company or any violation or alleged violation of law by the Holder or any other Person, and irrespective of any other circumstance which might otherwise limit such obligation of the Company to the Holder in connection with the issuance of Warrant Shares. Nothing herein shall limit the Holder’s right to pursue any other remedies available to it hereunder, in equity including, without limitation, a decree of specific performance and/or injunctive relief with respect to the Company’s failure to timely deliver Common Stock upon exercise of this Warrant as required pursuant to the terms hereof.

 

6.Charges, Taxes and Expenses. Issuance and delivery of certificates for shares of Common Stock upon exercise of this Warrant shall be made without charge to the Holder for any issue or transfer tax, withholding tax, transfer agent fee or other incidental tax or expense in respect of the issuance of such certificates, all of which taxes and expenses shall be paid by the Company; provided, however, that the Company shall not be required to pay any tax which may be payable in respect of any transfer involved in the issue, delivery or registration of any certificates for Warrant Shares or Warrant in a name other than that of the Holder and that the Holder will be required to pay any tax with respect to cash received in lieu of fractional shares. The Holder shall be responsible for all other tax liability of the Holder that may arise as a result of holding or transferring this Warrant or receiving Warrant Shares upon exercise hereof.

 

7.Replacement of Warrant. If this Warrant is mutilated, lost, stolen or destroyed, the Company, at the sole expense of the Holder (such expenses, if any imposed by the Company to be reasonable), shall issue or cause to be issued in exchange and substitution for and upon cancellation hereof, or in lieu of and in substitution for this Warrant, a New Warrant, but only upon receipt of evidence reasonably satisfactory to the Company of such loss, theft or destruction and customary and reasonable indemnity, if requested by the Company.

 

8.Reservation of Warrant Shares. The Company covenants that it will at all times reserve and keep available out of the aggregate of its authorized but unissued and otherwise unreserved Common Stock, solely for the purpose of enabling it to issue Warrant Shares upon exercise of this Warrant as herein provided, the number of Warrant Shares which are then issuable and deliverable upon the exercise of this entire Warrant, free from all taxes, liens, claims, encumbrances with respect to the issuance of such Warrant Shares and will not be subject to any pre-emptive rights or similar rights (taking into account the adjustments and restrictions of Section 9 hereof). The Company covenants that all Warrant Shares so issuable and deliverable shall, upon issuance and the payment of the applicable Exercise Price in accordance with the terms hereof, be duly and validly authorized, issued, fully paid and nonassessable. The Company will take all such action as may be necessary to assure that such shares of Common Stock may be issued as provided herein without violation of any applicable law or regulation, or of any requirements of any securities exchange or automated quotation system upon which the Common Stock may be listed or quoted, as the case may be.

 

 -5- 

 

 

9.Certain Adjustments. The Exercise Price and number of Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise of this Warrant are subject to adjustment from time to time as set forth in this Section 9.

 

9.1.   Stock Dividends. If the Company, at any time while this Warrant is outstanding, pays a dividend on its Common Stock payable in additional shares of Common Stock or otherwise makes a distribution on any class of capital stock that is payable in shares of Common Stock, then in each such case the Exercise Price shall be multiplied by a fraction, (A) the numerator of which shall be the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to the opening of business on the day after the record date for the determination of stockholders entitled to receive such dividend or distribution and (B) the denominator of which shall be the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after the distribution date of such dividend or distribution. Any adjustment made pursuant to this Section 9(a) shall become effective immediately after the record date for the determination of stockholders entitled to receive such dividend or distribution; provided, however, that if following such record date the Company rescinds or modifies such dividend or distribution, the Exercise Price shall be appropriately adjusted (as of the date that the Company effectively rescinds or modifies such dividend or distribution) to take into account the effect of such rescinded or modified dividend or distribution on the Exercise Price pursuant to this Section 9(a).

 

9.2.   Stock Splits. If the Company, at any time while this Warrant is outstanding, (i) subdivides outstanding shares of Common Stock into a larger number of shares, or (ii) combines outstanding shares of Common Stock into a smaller number of shares, then in each such case the Exercise Price shall be multiplied by a fraction, (A) the numerator of which shall be the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately before such event and (B) the denominator of which shall be the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after such event. Any adjustment pursuant to this Section 9(b) shall become effective immediately after the effective date of such subdivision or combination.

 

9.3.   Reclassifications. A reclassification of the Common Stock (other than any such reclassification in connection with a merger or consolidation to which Section 9(e) applies) into shares of any other class of stock shall be deemed:

 

9.3.1.      a distribution by the Company to the holders of its Common Stock of such shares of such other class of stock for the purposes and within the meaning of this Section 9; and

 

9.3.2.     if the outstanding shares of Common Stock shall be changed into a larger or smaller number of shares of Common Stock as part of such reclassification, such change shall be deemed a subdivision or combination, as the case may be, of the outstanding shares of Common Stock for the purposes and within the meaning of Section 9(b).

 

9.4.   Other Distributions. If the Company, at any time while this Warrant is outstanding, distributes to holders of Common Stock (i) evidences of its indebtedness, (ii) shares of any class of capital stock, (iii) rights or warrants to subscribe for or purchase any shares of any class of capital stock or (iv) any other asset, other than a distribution of Common Stock covered by Section 9(a), (in each case, “Distributed Property”), then in each such case the Exercise Price in effect immediately prior to the record date fixed for determination of stockholders entitled to receive such distribution (and the Exercise Price thereafter applicable) shall be adjusted (effective on and after such record date) to equal the product of such Exercise Price multiplied by a fraction, (A) the numerator of which shall be Market Price on such record date less the then fair market value of the Distributed Property distributed in respect of one outstanding share of Common Stock, which, if the Distributed Property is other than cash or marketable securities, shall be as reasonably determined in good faith by the Board of Directors of the Company whose determination shall be described in a board resolution, and (B) the denominator of which shall be the Market Price on such record date; provided, however, that if following the record date for such distribution the Company rescinds or modifies such distribution, the Exercise Price shall be appropriately adjusted (as of the date that the Company effectively rescinds or modifies such distribution) to take into account the effect of such rescinded or modified distribution on the Exercise Price pursuant to this Section 9(d).

 

 -6- 

 

 

9.5.   Fundamental Transactions. If, at any time while this Warrant is outstanding, (i) the Company effects any merger or consolidation of the Company with or into another Person, (ii) the Company effects any sale of all or substantially all of its assets or a majority of its stock acquired by a third party, in each case in one or a series of related transactions, (iii) any tender offer or exchange offer by another Person is completed pursuant to which all or substantially all of the holders of Common Stock are permitted to tender or exchange their shares for other securities, cash or property or (iv) there shall occur any merger of another Person into the Company whereby the Common Stock is cancelled, converted or reclassified into or exchanged for other securities, cash or property (in any such case, a “Fundamental Transaction”), then, as a condition to the consummation of such Fundamental Transaction, the Company shall (or, in the case of any Fundamental Transaction in which the Company is not the surviving entity, the Company shall take all reasonable steps to cause such other Person to execute and deliver to the Holder of this Warrant a written instrument providing that:

 

(x)       so long as this Warrant remains outstanding, upon the exercise hereof at any time on or after the consummation of such Fundamental Transaction and on such terms and subject to such conditions as shall be nearly equivalent as may be practicable to the provisions set forth in this Warrant, this Warrant shall be exercisable into, in lieu of Common Stock issuable upon such exercise prior to such consummation, the securities or other property (the “Substituted Property”) that would have been received in connection with such Fundamental Transaction by a holder of the number of shares of Common Stock into which this Warrant was exercisable immediately prior to such Fundamental Transaction, assuming such holder of Common Stock:

 

(A)      is not a Person with which the Company consolidated or into which the Company merged or which merged into the Company or to which such sale or transfer was made, as the case may be (a “Constituent Person”), or an Affiliate of a Constituent Person; and

 

(B)       failed to exercise such Holder’s rights of election, if any, as to the kind or amount of securities, cash and other property receivable in connection with such Fundamental Transaction (provided, however, that if the kind or amount of securities, cash or other property receivable in connection with such Fundamental Transaction is not the same for each share of Common Stock held immediately prior to such Fundamental Transaction by a Person other than a Constituent Person or an Affiliate thereof and in respect of which such rights of election shall not have been exercised (a “Non-Electing Share”), then, for the purposes of this Section 9(e), the kind and amount of securities, cash and other property receivable in connection with such Fundamental Transaction by each Non-Electing Share shall be deemed to be the kind and amount so receivable per share by a plurality of the Non-Electing Shares); and

 

(y)        the rights and obligations of the Company (or, in the event of a transaction in which the Company is not the surviving Person, such other Person) and the Holder in respect of Substituted Property shall be as nearly equivalent as may be practicable to the rights and obligations of the Company and Holder in respect of Common Stock hereunder.

 

 -7- 

 

 

Such written instrument shall provide for adjustments which, for events subsequent to the effective date of such written instrument, shall be as nearly equivalent as may be practicable to the adjustments provided for in this Section 9. The above provisions of this Section 9(e) shall similarly apply to successive Fundamental Transactions.

 

9.6.   Adjustment of Warrant Shares. Simultaneously with any adjustment to the Exercise Price pursuant to paragraphs (a) through (d) of this Section 9, the number of Warrant Shares that may be purchased upon exercise of this Warrant shall be increased or decreased proportionately, so that after such adjustment the aggregate Exercise Price payable hereunder for the increased or decreased number of Warrant Shares shall be the same as the aggregate Exercise Price payable for the Warrant Shares immediately prior to such adjustment.

 

9.7.   Calculations. All calculations under this Section 9 shall be made to the nearest cent or the nearest 1/100th of a share, as applicable. The number of shares of Common Stock outstanding at any given time shall not include shares owned or held by or for the account of the Company, and the disposition of any such shares shall be considered an issue or sale of Common Stock.

 

9.8.   Adjustments. Notwithstanding any provision of this Section 9, no adjustment of the Exercise Price shall be required if such adjustment is less than $0.01; provided, however, that any adjustments which by reason of this Section 9(h) are not required to be made shall be carried forward and taken into account for purposes of any subsequent adjustment required to be made hereunder.

 

9.9.   Notice of Adjustments. Upon the occurrence of each adjustment pursuant to this Section 9, the Company will promptly deliver to the Holder a certificate executed by the Company’s Chief Financial Officer setting forth, in reasonable detail, the event requiring such adjustment and the method by which such adjustment was calculated, the adjusted Exercise Price and the adjusted number or type of Warrant Shares or other securities issuable upon exercise of this Warrant (as applicable). The Company will retain at its office copies of all such certificates and cause the same to be available for inspection at said office during normal business hours by the Holder or any prospective purchaser of the Warrant designated by the Holder.

 

9.10.               Notice of Corporate Events. If the Company (i) declares a dividend or any other distribution of cash, securities or other property in respect of its Common Stock, including, without limitation, any granting of rights or warrants to subscribe for or purchase any capital stock of the Company or any subsidiary of the Company, (ii) authorizes, approves, enters into any agreement contemplating, or solicits stockholder approval for, any Fundamental Transaction or (iii) authorizes the voluntary dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the affairs of the Company, then the Company shall deliver to the Holder a notice describing the material terms and conditions of such transaction at least 15 Trading Days prior to the applicable record or effective date on which a Person would need to hold Common Stock in order to participate in or vote with respect to such transaction (but not prior to the public announcement thereof to the Company’s common stockholders at large), and the Company will take all steps reasonably necessary in order to ensure that the Holder is given the practical opportunity to exercise this Warrant prior to such time so as to participate in or vote with respect to such transaction; provided, however, that the failure to deliver such notice or any defect therein shall not affect the validity of the corporate action required to be described in such notice.

 

10.Fractional Shares. The Company shall not be required to issue or cause to be issued fractional Warrant Shares on the exercise of this Warrant. If any fraction of a Warrant Share would, except for the provisions of this Section 10, be issuable upon exercise of this Warrant, the Company shall make a cash payment to the Holder equal to (a) such fraction multiplied by (b) the Market Price on the Exercise Date of one full Warrant Share.

 

 -8- 

 

 

11.Listing on Securities Exchanges. The Company has agreed to list, and will use its reasonable best efforts to maintain the listing of, the Common Stock, which shall include the Warrant Shares, on Nasdaq consistent with the terms of the Subscription Agreement, dated as October 1, 2014, by and between the Company and Holder (the “Subscription Agreement”). In furtherance and not in limitation of any other provision of this Warrant, if the Company at any time shall list any Common Stock on any Eligible Market other than Nasdaq, the Company will use its reasonable best efforts, at its expense, to simultaneously list the Warrant Shares (and use its reasonable best efforts to maintain such listing) on such Eligible Market, upon official notice of issuance following the exercise of this Warrant; and the Company will so list, register and use its reasonable best efforts to maintain such listing on any Eligible Market any Other Securities, if and at the time that any securities of like class or similar type shall be listed on such Eligible Market by the Company.

 

12.Remedies. The Company stipulates that the remedies at law of the Holder of this Warrant in the event of any default or threatened default by the Company in the performance of or compliance with any of the terms of this Warrant are not and will not be adequate, and that such terms may be specifically enforced by a decree for the specific performance of any agreement contained herein or by an injunction against a violation of any of the terms hereof or otherwise.

 

13.Notices. Any and all notices or other communications or deliveries hereunder (including without limitation any Exercise Notice) shall be in writing and shall be mailed by certified mail, return receipt requested, or by a nationally recognized courier service or delivered (in person, by facsimile or by email), against receipt to the party to whom such notice or other communication is to be given.

Any Person into which any new warrant agent may be merged, any Person resulting from any consolidation to which any new warrant agent shall be a party or any Person to which any new warrant agent transfers substantially all of its corporate trust or shareholders services business shall be a successor warrant agent under this Warrant without any further act. Any such successor warrant agent shall promptly cause notice of its succession as warrant agent to be mailed (by first class mail, postage prepaid) to the Holder at the Holder’s last address as shown on the Warrant Register.

 

 -9- 

 

 

15.Exercise Limitations; Holder’s Restrictions. The Company shall not effect any exercise of this Warrant, and a Holder shall not have the right to exercise any portion of this Warrant, pursuant to Section 15 or otherwise, to the extent that after giving effect to such issuance after exercise as set forth on the applicable Notice of Exercise, the Holder (together with the Holder’s Affiliates, and any other person or entity acting as a group together with the Holder or any of the Holder’s Affiliates), would beneficially own in excess of the Beneficial Ownership Limitation (as defined below).  For purposes of the foregoing sentence, the number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Holder and its Affiliates shall include the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of this Warrant with respect to which such determination is being made, but shall exclude the number of shares of Common Stock which would be issuable upon (A) exercise of the remaining, nonexercised portion of this Warrant beneficially owned by the Holder or any of its Affiliates and (B) exercise or conversion of the unexercised or nonconverted portion of any other securities of the Company subject to a limitation on conversion or exercise analogous to the limitation contained herein beneficially owned by the Holder or any of its affiliates.  Except as set forth in the preceding sentence, for purposes of this Section 15, beneficial ownership shall be calculated in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, it being acknowledged by the Holder that the Company is not representing to the Holder that such calculation is in compliance with Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act and the Holder is solely responsible for any schedules required to be filed in accordance therewith. To the extent that the limitation contained in this Section 15 applies, the determination of whether this Warrant is exercisable (in relation to other securities owned by the Holder together with any Affiliates) and of which portion of this Warrant is exercisable shall be in the sole discretion of the Holder, and the submission of an Exercise Notice shall be deemed to be the Holder’s determination of whether this Warrant is exercisable (in relation to other securities owned by the Holder together with any Affiliates) and of which portion of this Warrant is exercisable, in each case subject to the Beneficial Ownership Limitation, and the Company shall have no obligation to verify or confirm the accuracy of such determination. In addition, a determination as to any group status as contemplated above shall be determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder. For purposes of this Section 15, in determining the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock, a Holder may rely on the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock as reflected in (A) the Company’s most recent periodic or annual report, as the case may be, (B) a more recent public announcement by the Company or (C) any other notice by the Company or the transfer agent setting forth the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding.  Upon the written or oral request of a Holder, the Company shall within two Trading Days confirm orally and in writing to the Holder the number of shares of Common Stock then outstanding.  In any case, the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock shall be determined after giving effect to the conversion or exercise of securities of the Company, including this Warrant, by the Holder or its Affiliates since the date as of which such number of outstanding shares of Common Stock was reported. The “Beneficial Ownership Limitation” shall be 4.99% of the number of shares of the Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the issuance of shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of this Warrant. The Holder, upon not less than 61 days’ prior notice to the Company, may increase or decrease the Beneficial Ownership Limitation provisions of this Section 15, provided that the Beneficial Ownership Limitation in no event exceeds 9.99% of the number of shares of the Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the issuance of shares of Common Stock upon exercise of this Warrant held by the Holder and the provisions of this Section 15 shall continue to apply. Any such increase or decrease will not be effective until the 61st day after such notice is delivered to the Company. The provisions of this paragraph shall be construed and implemented in a manner otherwise than in strict conformity with the terms of this Section 15 to correct this paragraph (or any portion hereof) which may be defective or inconsistent with the intended Beneficial Ownership Limitation herein contained or to make changes or supplements necessary or desirable to properly give effect to such limitation. The limitations contained in this paragraph shall apply to a successor holder of this Warrant.

 

16.Miscellaneous.

 

16.1.       This Warrant may be assigned by the Holder, subject to compliance with applicable securities laws. This Warrant may not be assigned by the Company, except to a successor in the event of a Fundamental Transaction. This Warrant shall be binding on and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns. Subject to the preceding sentence, nothing in this Warrant shall be construed to give to any Person other than the Company and the Holder any legal or equitable right, remedy or cause of action under this Warrant. This Warrant may be amended only in writing signed by the Company and the Holder and their successors and assigns.

 

 -10- 

 

 

16.2.       The Company will not, by amendment of its governing documents or through any reorganization, transfer of assets, consolidation, merger, dissolution, issue 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, but will at all times in good faith assist in the carrying out of all such terms and in the taking of all such action as may be necessary or appropriate in order to protect the rights of the Holder against impairment. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Company (i) will not increase the par value of any Warrant Shares above the amount payable therefor upon exercise thereof, and (ii) will take all such action as may be reasonably necessary or appropriate in order that the Company may validly and legally issue fully paid and nonassessable Warrant Shares on the exercise of this Warrant, free from all taxes, or liens, claims and encumbrances created by the Company and (iii) will not close its shareholder books or records in any manner which interferes with the timely exercise of this Warrant.

 

16.3.       This Warrant shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of New York. Each party hereby irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and Federal courts sitting in the City of New York, Borough of Manhattan, for the adjudication of any dispute hereunder or in connection herewith or with any transaction contemplated hereby or discussed herein, and hereby irrevocably waives, and agrees not to assert in any suit, action or proceeding that it is not personally subject to the jurisdiction of any such court or that such suit, action or proceeding is improper. Each party hereby irrevocably waives personal service of process and consents to process being served in any such suit, action or proceeding by mailing a copy thereof via registered or certified mail or overnight delivery (with evidence of delivery) to such party at the address in effect for notices to it under this Warrant and agrees that such service shall constitute good and sufficient service of process and notice thereof. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to limit in any way any right to serve process in any manner permitted by law. THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A TRIAL BY JURY.

 

16.4.       Neither party shall be deemed in default of any provision of this Warrant, to the extent that performance of its obligations or attempts to cure a breach hereof are delayed or prevented by any event reasonably beyond the control of such party, including, without limitation, war, hostilities, acts of terrorism, revolution, riot, civil commotion, national emergency, strike, lockout, unavailability of supplies, epidemic, fire, flood, earthquake, force of nature, explosion, embargo, or any other Act of God, or any law, proclamation, regulation, ordinance, or other act or order of any court, government or governmental agency, provided that such party gives the other party written notice thereof promptly upon discovery thereof and uses reasonable best efforts to cure or mitigate the delay or failure to perform.

 

16.5.       The headings herein are for convenience only, do not constitute a part of this Warrant and shall not be deemed to limit or affect any of the provisions hereof.

 

16.6.       In case any one or more of the provisions of this Warrant shall be deemed invalid or unenforceable in any respect, the validity and enforceability of the remaining terms and provisions of this Warrant shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby and the parties will attempt in good faith to agree upon a valid and enforceable provision which shall be a commercially reasonable substitute therefor, and upon so agreeing, shall incorporate such substitute provision in this Warrant.

CLOSING AND TERMS OF THE REVENUE STREAM AND NOTES

 

2.1.        The Revenue Stream.

 

2.1.1.        Purchase of the Revenue Stream. On the Closing Date, subject to the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 3.1, and against the payment of an aggregate purchase price of $500,000 allocated as set forth on Schedule 2.1, the Company granted the Revenue Stream to the Revenue Participants. The purchase price for the Revenue Stream was increased to $550,000 as consideration for the amendments to the Revenue Stream made on the First Amendment Effective Date, and will be further increased by an amount equal to 5% of the principal amount of the Notes issued on and after the First Amendment Effective Date; i.e., by $59,975 on account of the $1,199,500 of Notes issued on the First Amendment Effective Date. In the event that the full $3,000,000 of additional Notes are issued, the allocated purchase price of the Revenue Stream will total $700,000. The rights of the Revenue Participants to the Revenue Stream shall be secured pursuant to the Collateral Documents, junior in priority to the rights of the Note Purchasers.

 

2.1.2.        Payments to Revenue Participants. Following payment in full of the Note Obligations, the Company shall pay to the Revenue Participants their proportionate share, in accordance with Schedule 2.1, of the Revenue Stream; provided, that the Company shall instruct any payors to deposit Monetization Revenues, per Section 6.11, directly into the Cash Collateral Account. Any applicable payments by the Company to Revenue Participants shall be made monthly on the last Business Day of each month with respect to any Monetization Revenues received through the last Business Day of the prior month. Except to the extent that the Collateral Agent is enjoined or stayed from distributing any such Monetization Revenues by action brought by the Company, such direct deposit in the Cash Collateral Account by payors shall constitute timely payment by the Company. For the avoidance of doubt, prior to the payment in full of the Note Obligations, all Monetization Net Revenues shall be applied by the Company or the Collateral Agent, as the case may be, in accordance with Section 2.2.4, including the payment of principal, interest and any applicable premiums or fees on the Note Obligations (inclusive of payments owed pursuant to Sections 9.1(ii)-(iv) or 9.2, and shall not be shared with any Revenue Participants as a payment in respect of the Revenue Stream.

 

2.2.        The Notes.

 

2.2.1.        Purchase and Sale of the Notes. On the Closing Date and on each issuance date of Notes from and after the First Amendment Effective Date, subject to satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 3.1 and Section 3.2, respectively, the Company agrees to issue and sell, and each Note Purchaser agrees to purchase, for the purchase prices set forth on Schedule 2.2 and in accordance with the percentages set forth on Schedule 2.2, Original Notes in an aggregate original principal amount of $11,000,000 on the Closing Date, New Notes in an aggregate original principal amount of $1,199,500 on the First Amendment Effective Date, and up to a further $1,800,500 of New Notes following the First Amendment Effective Date.

 

 -3- 

 

 

2.2.2.        Interest on the Notes. The unpaid principal amount of the Notes (including any PIK Interest) shall bear cash interest at a rate equal to LIBOR plus 7% per annum plus 3% per annum of PIK interest (defined below); provided that upon and during the continuance of an Event of Default under Section 7.1.1, the cash interest rate shall increase by an additional 2% per annum. Interest on the Notes shall be paid on the last Business Day of each calendar month (the “Interest Payment Date”), starting with the calendar month ending October 31, 2014. Such interest shall be paid in cash except that 3.00% per annum of the interest due on each Interest Payment Date shall be paid-in-kind, by increasing the principal amount of the Notes by the amount of such interest, effective as of the applicable Interest Payment Date (“PIK Interest”). PIK Interest shall be treated as principal of the Note for all purposes of interest accrual or calculation of any premium.

 

2.2.3.        Fees; Prepayment Premium.

 

2.2.3.1.          At the Closing Date, the Company has paid to the Note Purchasers a structuring fee equal to $385,000, and on each subsequent date on which Notes (other than the New Notes) are issued, the Company shall pay to the Purchasers a structuring fee equal to 3.5% of the original principal amount of the Notes issued on such date. The structuring fee shall be netted out of the funding at the Closing Date and on each issuance date following the Closing Date.

 

2.2.3.2.          Upon the earlier of the date on which the Note Obligations are paid in full, or become due (whether at the Maturity Date or upon acceleration), the Company shall pay to the Note Purchasers a termination fee equal to the sum of (x) $770,000 plus (y) 7.0% of the original principal amount of the Notes (including the New Notes) issued following the Closing Date.

 

2.2.4.        Payment of the Notes.

 

2.2.4.1.          Payment at Maturity. The principal of the Notes and all unpaid interest thereon or other amounts owing hereunder shall be paid in full in cash on September 30, 2017 (the “Maturity Date”). If the Maturity Date is not a Business Day, such payment shall be due on the next following Business Day.

 

2.2.4.2.          Optional Prepayments. In addition to being required to make Mandatory Prepayments as required under Section 2.2.4.4, the Company may prepay the Notes from time to time in whole or in part, without penalty or premium, except that any optional prepayments of the Notes prior to the first anniversary of the Closing Date shall be accompanied by a prepayment premium equal to 5.00% of the principal amount prepaid. Any such prepayment shall include accrued and unpaid interest on the amount prepaid.

 

 -4- 

 

 

2.2.4.3.          Amortization. Commencing on the last Business Day of September, 2016, the Company shall make monthly amortization payments on the Notes in an amount, as of the date of such payment, equal to (x) the then outstanding principal amount divided by (y) the number of months left until the Maturity Date. The amount of the monthly amortization payment shall be calculated by the Company, and provided to the Collateral Agent for review, initially prior to the first such payment and recalculated following any optional or mandatory prepayment.

 

2.2.4.4.          Mandatory Prepayments. Upon receipt of any Monetization Revenues, the Company or the Collateral Agent, as the case may be, shall apply 86% of such Monetization Net Revenues to the payment of accrued and unpaid interest on, and then to repay outstanding principal of, and any fees with respect to, the Notes until all Note Obligations have been paid in full; provided that 100% of Monetization Net Revenues from the Specified Licenses shall be so applied. Payments by the Company on the Notes shall be made monthly on the last Business Day of each month with respect to Monetization Revenues received through the last Business Day of the prior month. For the avoidance of doubt, mandatory prepayments are not subject to any prepayment premium.

 

2.2.4.5.          Application of Payments. Payments on the Notes shall be applied in the following order, first to any then outstanding expenses or other amounts owing pursuant to Article IX; second, to accrued and unpaid interest (excluding PIK Interest); third to principal; fourth to any prepayment premium on the principal so repaid; and finally, after all principal of the Notes and any prepayment premium, has been paid in full, to the termination fee. Optional and mandatory repayments shall reduce required amortization payments pro rata. Payments on Notes (other than accrued and unpaid interest, which shall be applied pro rata to interest due on all outstanding Notes) shall be first applied to Notes with the lowest amount of unamortized original issue discount as a percentage of principal.

 

2.3.        Monetization Revenues. All Monetization Revenues received by the Company or deposited in the Cash Collateral Account shall be applied so that 86% of Monetization Net Revenues are applied to the Note Obligations until paid in full; provided, that 100% of Monetization Net Revenues from the Specified Licenses shall be so applied; and provided further that 100% of the Monetization Net Revenues received since the last Business Day of the preceding month shall be applied to pay any past due Note Obligations, including in the event of acceleration of the Notes. Following payment in full of the Note Obligations, the Applicable Percentage of the Monetization Net Revenues received following the payment in full of the Note Obligations shall be paid to the Revenue Participants for application to the Revenue Stream, in accordance with Section 2.1.2 and Schedule 2.1, until fully satisfied; provided that in the event of an acceleration of the Revenue Stream, 100% of the Monetization Net Revenues received since the last Business Day of the preceding month shall be applied to pay the remaining balance of the Revenue Stream. The Company, after payment in full of the Note Obligations, may prepay any or all of the remaining balance of the Revenue Stream (as defined with respect to the applicable time of such payment in the definition of Revenue Stream). In the event of an ***, 100% of Monetization Net Revenues shall be applied to the payment of the Note Obligations and, following the payment in full of the Note Obligations, to the Revenue Stream, pending ***, which, if and to the extent that ***, then the Net Revenues applied after such determination to payment of the Note Obligations or the Revenue Stream shall revert to the Applicable Percentages per the terms of this Agreement as if *** had not occurred, and any amounts then due back to the Company will be treated as prepayments of the Note Obligations, or if the Note Obligations have been paid in full, of the Revenue Stream.

2.4.        Purchase Price Allocation. The Company and the Purchasers agree that, for purposes of Sections 305 and 1271 through 1275 of the Code or any other jurisdiction, the aggregate purchase price of the Original Notes issued on the Closing Date shall be $9,115,000, the aggregate purchase price of the New Notes issued on the First Amendment Effective Date shall equal $1,049,525, the purchase price of the Warrants shall be $40,000, the aggregate purchase price of the Revenue Stream shall be the sum of (a) $550,000 plus (b) 5% of the original principal amount of any New Notes issued on and after the First Amendment Effective Date, the purchase price of the New Notes issued after the First Amendment Effective Date shall equal 95% of the principal amount of such Notes, and that such purchase prices shall be used by the Company and each Purchaser for all financial reporting and income tax reporting purposes.

 

2.5.        Taxes. Any and all payments by the Company with respect to any Notes or the Revenue Stream shall be made free and clear of and without deduction for any and all present or future taxes, levies, imposts, deductions, charges or withholdings in any such case imposed by the United States or any political subdivision thereof, excluding taxes imposed or based on the recipient Purchaser’s overall net income, and franchise or capital taxes imposed on it in lieu of net income taxes (all such non-excluded taxes, levies, imposts, deductions, charges, withholdings and liabilities in respect of payments hereunder being hereinafter referred to as “Taxes”). If the Company shall be required by law to deduct any Taxes from or in respect of any sum payable hereunder or under any Notes to any Purchaser, (i) the sum payable shall be increased as may be reasonably necessary so that after making all required deductions for taxes (including deductions for taxes applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 2.5) such Purchaser receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions been made, (ii) the Company shall make such deductions and (iii) the Company shall remit the full amount deducted to the relevant taxation authority or other authority in accordance with applicable law. Within 30 days after the date of any payment of such Taxes (or, if later, promptly upon a receipt becoming available), the Company shall furnish to the Purchasers the original or certified copy of a receipt evidencing payment thereof. If the Company or any Purchaser shall subsequently receive a refund or tax credit for any such Taxes withheld as to which the Purchaser has been made whole pursuant to the preceding procedure, any such refund or credit shall be for the sole account of the Company.

 

2.6.        Manner and Time of Payment. All payments to the Note Purchasers or the Revenue Participants (or the Cash Collateral Account, as the case may be) shall be made by wire transfer or other same day funds, without set off, not later than 2:00 p.m. on the day such payment is due, in accordance with the payment instructions set forth on Schedule 2.6.

 

 -6- 

 

 

2.7.        Patent License. Effective as of the earlier of (x) the date that is 365 days after the Closing Date or (y) the occurrence of an Event of Default, the Company shall grant to the Collateral Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties, a non-exclusive, royalty free, license (including the right to grant sublicenses) with respect to the Patents, which shall be evidenced by, and reflected in, the Patent License Agreement, which shall be delivered at Closing. The Patent License Agreement shall terminate upon payment in full of the Note Obligations and the Revenue Stream and as otherwise specified in the Patent License Agreement, but any sublicenses granted prior to any termination of this Agreement (except to Collateral Agent or its affiliates) shall survive according to the respective terms and conditions of such sublicenses. The Collateral Agent and the Secured Parties agree that the Collateral Agent shall only use such license (a) following the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default (including, without limitation, an Event of Default on account of a breach of the minimum liquidity requirement of Section 6.10 or on account of a payment default arising from a failure to timely make any required amortization payments); or (b) from December 1, 2015 until the later of (x) February 1, 2016, (y) the Company’s delivery of a compliance certificate demonstrating compliance with Section 6.10 for any week on or after the week ended February 4, 2016, and (z) the date on which the Company shall have made the second of two consecutive monthly amortization payments in accordance with Section 2.2.4.3.

 

2.8.        Additional Fundings.

 

2.8.1.          It is contemplated that the Company may subsequently request that the Purchasers acquire up to $2,000,000 in additional Notes (in addition to the aggregate $14,000,000 issued and committed to be issued as of the First Amendment Effective Date), and further acquire additional interests in the Company’s Monetization Revenues. If the Company shall make such request, and if the Purchasers agree, in their sole discretion, to provide such additional funding to the Company, this Agreement shall be amended in a manner satisfactory to the Company and the Purchasers to reflect the economic and other terms and conditions of such additional funding, which terms and conditions shall be satisfactory to the Company and the Purchasers. In particular, it is contemplated that to the extent that such incremental funding occurs, the additional Notes and participation in the Monetization Revenues will have substantially the same economic terms as those issued on and after the First Amendment Effective Date (e.g., will contemplate the same rate, percentage fees, etc. and will provide for a proportional additional share of Monetization Net Revenues.)

 

2.8.2.          In addition, if and to the extent that the Company breaches its obligations under Section 6.14 to timely pay amounts due under its Patent Purchase Agreements, the Purchasers shall have the option (but no obligation) to advance directly to the applicable seller under such Patent Purchase Agreement any such past due amounts. If and to the extent that the Purchasers elect to make such advances, this Agreement shall be amended in a manner satisfactory to the Purchasers (and the Company shall be deemed to have irrevocably consented to such amendment) so as to reflect the economics of such additional funding, which shall be on economic terms that are substantially the same as the Notes and Revenue Stream issued at Closing (but with a maturity date and return threshold deadlines that are consistent with the Notes and Revenue Stream issued at Closing).

 

 -7- 

 

 

2.9.        Proceeds of Patent Monetization. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, including, without limitation, Section 2.2.4.4 and Section 2.3 which are superseded by this Section 2.9 , in the event of a sale or license whether exclusive or non exclusive, of all or a portion of the Patents or any other transaction that gives rise to Monetization Revenues (each a “Patent Realization Event”) the proceeds of any such transaction, as and when received by the Company, shall be applied as follows:

 

i)         100% of the Patent Realization Event Net Proceeds from any such transaction shall be applied to the Note Obligations (which shall include any principal, interest, termination fees, legal fees or other expenses of the Collateral Agent in connection with such transaction) until paid in full.

 

ii)          Following the payment in full of the Note Obligations, 75% of the remaining Patent Realization Event Net Proceeds shall be applied to the Revenue Stream until the amount applied to the Revenue Stream pursuant to this clause (ii) totals $5 million.

 

iii)      Following the application of $5 million to the Revenue Stream pursuant to clause (ii), 50% of the remaining Patent Realization Event Net Proceeds shall be applied to the Revenue Stream until the amount applied to the Revenue Stream pursuant to this clause (iii) totals, (x) if paid in full on or before September 30, 2016, $3,500,000, (y) if not paid in full on or before September 30, 2016 but paid in full on or before December 31, 2016, $4,500,000, and (z) if not paid in full on or before December 31, 2016, $6,284,538;

 

provided, that notwithstanding the foregoing clauses (ii) and (iii), in the event of an acceleration of the Revenue Stream, 100% of the Patent Realization Event Net Proceeds shall be applied to the Revenue Stream until the Purchasers have received $11,284,538 on account of the Revenue Stream.

 

For the avoidance of doubt, proceeds of any Disposition of any Patents, or of any equity interest in Owner, shall constitute Monetization Revenues and shall be distributed in accordance with this Section 2.9. Prior to the occurrence of an Event of Default, the Company may also elect to satisfy the Note Obligations and Revenue Stream from sources other than Patent Realization Event Net Proceeds and may also accelerate the payments provided for above so that greater percentages of the Patent Realization Event Net Proceeds are applied to satisfy the Revenue Stream. For the sake of clarity, and consistent with clauses (i) and (ii) above, the Revenue Stream can be fully satisfied and the Company’s obligations with respect to the Revenue Stream fully discharged if, prior to an Event of Default, either (i) on or before September 30, 2016, the Note Obligations have been fully paid and the Purchasers have received $8,500,000 on account of the Revenue Stream, or (ii) on or before December 31, 2016, the Note Obligations have been fully paid and the Purchasers have received $9,500,000 on account of the Revenue Stream, or (iii) thereafter, the Note Obligations have been fully paid and the Purchasers have received $11,284,538 on account of the Revenue Stream.

For purposes of this Section 2.9, the “Patent Realization Event Net Proceeds” of a transaction, shall mean the greater of (A) the total gross Monetization Revenues of such transaction, less the following (i) any brokers’ commissions that have been approved, in advance, by the Collateral Agent, (ii) the Company’s reasonable documented legal fees and expenses directly related to such transaction; provided, for the avoidance of doubt, that no legal fees or expenses incurred prior to December 1, 2015 shall be deducted from such gross proceeds, less (iii) solely in the case of a Patent Sale of the Panasonic and Huawei Patents, Contractual Obligations of the Company to certain third parties as detailed below and (B) 60% of the total gross Monetization Revenues of such transaction. Specifically, in the case of Panasonic patents, such third party Contractual Obligations consist of 20% of gross transaction proceeds owed to Panasonic, 2% of “*** Net Monetization Revenues” owed to *** (with such term defined in the agreement between the Company ***), and 4% of “*** Net Monetization Revenues”, up to a pre-determined limit, owed to *** (with such term defined in the engagement letter between the Company and ***). In the case of Huawei patents, such third party Contractual Obligations consist of 20% of “Huawei Net Monetization Revenues” owed to Huawei (with such term defined in the Patent Purchase Agreement between the Company and Huawei), 10% of gross transaction proceeds, up to a pre-determined limit, owed to ***, 2% of “*** Net Monetization Revenues” owed to *** (with such term defined in the agreement between the Company and ***), and 4% of “*** Net Monetization Revenues”, up to a pre-determined limit, owed to *** (with such term defined in the engagement letter between the Company and ***).

 

By way of illustration, assuming (i) that the gross proceeds of a sale of some or all of the Panasonic Patents totals $50,000,000, (ii) that the broker’s commission is owed pursuant to the *** Brokerage Agreement, (iii) that the Note Obligations (including expenses of the Collateral Agent) total $10,906,465 as of such date, which consist of $10,052,500 of principal outstanding and $853,965 of termination fees (PIK interest has been excluded for this example only), (iv) that the legal fees and disbursements of the Company in connection with such transaction totals $100,000, (v) that allowable deductible expenses for purposes of calculating third party Contractual Obligations under the Company’s agreements with third parties are $2,000,000 in all cases, and (vi) that clause (iii)(z) above applies, the proceeds of such sale shall be distributed as follows:

 

 -9- 

 

 

$50,000,000 would generate a commission due to *** under the *** Brokerage Agreement of (0.1 x $1,000,000) + (0.075 x $4,000,000) + (0.05 x $45,000,000) = $2,650,000.

 

Patent Realization Event Net Proceeds would be calculated as:

 

The greater of:

 

(A)    
     
Gross Proceeds  $50,000,000 
Less *** fees  $(2,650,000)
Less Company legal fees  $(100,000)

(Note: Contractual Obligations to *** if this was a Huawei/Nokia sale would be 10% of gross transaction proceeds up to a total of approx.. *** based on previously deferred legal billings))

Less Contractual Obligation to Panasonic  $(10,000,000)
Less Contractual Obligation to ***  $(960,000)
(Or to *** if this was a Huawei/Nokia sale)     
Less Contractual Obligation to ***  $(336,600)
Net Proceeds  $35,953,400 

 

and

 

(B) $30,000,000 (60% of $50,000,000)

 

Patent Realization Event Net Proceeds equals $35,953,400.

 

i) $10,906,465 is applied to the Note Obligations, leaving $25,046,935 of Patent Realization Event Net Proceeds;

 

ii) Of the next $6,666,667 in Patent Realization Event Net Proceeds, $5,000,000 is applied to the Revenue Stream and $1,666,667 to the Company, leaving $18,380,268 in remaining Patent Realization Event Net Proceeds;

 

iii) Of the remaining $18,380,268, $6,284,538 is applied to the Revenue Stream, leaving $12,095,730, which will be paid to the Company.

 

The result of the foregoing distribution of $50,000,000, after payment of $2,750,000 in transaction expenses, is a total of $22,191,003 being paid to the Purchasers, $13,762,397 being paid to the Company, and $11,296,600 being paid to satisfy third party Contractual Obligations.

5.6.        Reliance on Exemptions. The Purchaser understands that the Notes and Warrants are being offered and sold to it in reliance on specific exemptions from the registration requirements of U.S. federal and state securities laws and that the Company is relying in part upon the truth and accuracy of, and the Purchaser’s compliance with, the representations, warranties, agreements, acknowledgements and understandings of the Purchaser set forth herein in order to determine the availability of such exemptions and the eligibility of the Purchaser to acquire its Notes and Warrants.

Any such costs and expenses invoiced on or prior to the Closing Date shall be paid on such Closing Date. Any other costs and expenses shall be paid within thirty (30) days of the submission of an invoice to the Company therefor, provided that the Collateral Agent’s application of the proceeds of the Monetization Revenues towards such expenses pursuant to Section 6.11 shall be deemed to be timely payment thereof if the Collateral Agent receives sufficient Monetization Revenues within such 30 day period that are not otherwise required to be applied to amounts due hereunder.

The provisions of this Section 9.1 shall survive the repayment in full of the Notes and the termination of this Agreement.

9.2.        Indemnity. In addition to the payment of expenses pursuant to Section 9.1, whether or not the transactions contemplated hereby shall be consummated, the Company (as “Indemnitor”) agrees to indemnify, pay and hold the Collateral Agent and the Purchasers, and the officers, directors, partners, managers, members, employees, agents, and Affiliates of the Collateral Agent and the Purchasers (collectively, the “Indemnitees”) harmless from and against any and all other liabilities, costs, expenses, obligations, losses (other than lost profit), damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, claims and disbursements of any kind or nature whatsoever (including, without limitation, the reasonable fees and disbursements of one counsel for such Indemnitees) in connection with any investigative, administrative or judicial proceeding commenced or threatened (excluding claims among Indemnitees) by any person who is not a Purchaser or an Affiliate thereof or the Collateral Agent or an Affiliate thereof, whether or not such Indemnitee shall be designated a party thereto, which may be imposed on, incurred by, or asserted against that Indemnitee, in any manner relating to or arising out of this Agreement and the Notes (the “Indemnified Liabilities”); provided that the Indemnitor shall not have any obligation to an Indemnitee hereunder with respect to an Indemnified Liability to the extent that such Indemnified Liability arises from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of that Indemnitee or any of its officers, directors, partners, managers, members, employees, agents and/or Affiliates. Each Indemnitee shall give the Indemnitor prompt written notice of any claim that might give rise to Indemnified Liabilities setting forth a description of those elements of such claim of which such Indemnitee has knowledge; provided that any failure to give such timely notice shall not affect the obligations of the Indemnitor except if and to the extent that any such failure to provide notice is both grossly negligent and results in material prejudice to the defense of such Indemnified Liability. The Indemnitor shall have the right at any time during which such claim is pending to select counsel to defend and control the defense thereof and settle any claims for which it is responsible for indemnification hereunder (provided that the Indemnitor will not settle any such claim without (i) the appropriate Indemnitee’s prior written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed or (ii) obtaining an unconditional release of the appropriate Indemnitee from all claims arising out of or in any way relating to the circumstances involving such claim and without any admission as to culpability or fault of such Indemnitee) so long as in any such event, the Indemnitor shall have stated in a writing delivered to the Indemnitee that, as between the Indemnitor and the Indemnitee, the Indemnitor is responsible to the Indemnitee with respect to such claim to the extent and subject to the limitations set forth herein; provided that the Indemnitor shall not be entitled to control the defense of any claim in the event that in the reasonable opinion of counsel for the Indemnitee, there are one or more material defenses available to the Indemnitee which are not available to the Indemnitor, in which case, the Indemnitor shall also pay the reasonable fees and expenses of one separate counsel (plus a local counsel if applicable) for all Indemnitees; provided further, that with respect to any claim as to which the Indemnitee is controlling the defense, the Indemnitor will not be liable to any Indemnitee for any settlement of any claim pursuant to this Section 9.2 that is effected without its prior written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. To the extent that the undertaking to indemnify, pay and hold harmless set forth in this Section 9.2 may be unenforceable because it is violative of any law or public policy, the Company shall contribute the maximum portion which it is permitted to pay and satisfy under applicable law, to the payment and satisfaction of all Indemnified Liabilities incurred by the Indemnitees or any of them. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, no party shall be liable to the other party or any third party for any indirect, incidental, exemplary, special, punitive or consequential damages (including with respect to lost revenue, lost profits or savings or business interruption) of any kind or nature whatsoever suffered by the other party or any third party howsoever caused and regardless of the form or cause of action, even if such damages are foreseeable or such party has been advised of the possibility of such damages. The provisions of this Section 9.2 shall survive the repayment in full of the Notes and the termination of this Agreement.

Any waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which it was given. No notice to or demand on the Company in any case shall entitle the Company to any further notice or demand in similar or other circumstances. Any amendment, modification, termination, waiver or consent effected in accordance with this Section 9.4.1 shall be binding upon the holders of the Obligations at the time outstanding and each future holder thereof.

 

9.4.2.          Course of Dealing; No Implied Waivers. No course of dealing between the Purchasers and the Company shall operate as a waiver of any Purchaser’s rights under this Agreement or with respect to the Obligations. In particular, no delay or omission on the part of any Purchaser in exercising any right under this Agreement or with respect to the Obligations shall operate as a waiver of such right or any other right hereunder or thereunder.

9.10.1.          The provisions of this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns permitted by Sections 9.10.2 and 9.10.3.

 

9.10.2.          The Company may not assign or otherwise transfer any of its rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of the Majority Purchasers other than by operation of law. Subject to Section 9.10.4 below, and compliance with any applicable securities laws (as reasonably determined by such Purchaser), any Note Purchaser may sell, assign, participate or transfer all or any portion of its Notes and related rights under this Agreement to an Eligible Assignee (as defined below) with the written consent of the Company (not to be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned); provided that (x) the consent of the Company shall not be required (a) in the case of any sale, assignment, participation or transfer to any Person that is not a direct competitor of the Company (as reasonably determined by the Majority Purchasers with notice to the Company), (b) in the case of any sale, assignment, participation or transfer to any Affiliate of a Purchaser that is an Eligible Assignee and (c) if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing; (y) such Note Purchaser and the assignee of such Note Purchaser shall have delivered an executed Assignment and Acceptance Agreement substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit D-1 to the Company and each other Purchaser; and (z) other than during an Event of Default, no Note Purchaser may sell, assign, participate or transfer all or any part of their rights under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the Company if, as a result of such sale, assignment, participation or transfer, the resulting Note Purchasers constituting the Majority Note Purchasers would at any time be greater in number than one Note Purchaser except that all Affiliates of the original Note Purchaser shall be treated as if they were one entity for purposes of this clause (z) and there is a single point of contact representing the original Note Purchaser and all such Affiliates for purposes of this Agreement. In the case of any sale, assignment, transfer or negotiation of all or part of the rights of a Note Purchaser under this Agreement that is authorized under this Section 9.10.2, the assignee, transferee or recipient shall have, to the extent of such sale, assignment, transfer or negotiation, the same rights, benefits and obligations as it would if it were a Note Purchaser hereunder (and shall be considered to be a substitute for the prior Note Purchaser for all purposes and definitions hereunder). The Note Purchasers agree to provide to the Company prompt written notice of any sales, assignments or transfers permitted hereunder, including the name and address of the transferee(s). “Eligible Assignee” means any commercial bank, insurance company, finance company, financial institution, fund that invests in loans or any other “accredited investor” (as defined in Regulation D of the Securities Act (subject to such consents, if any, as may be required above under this Section 9.10.2)).

9.10.3.          The Company shall maintain at its principal office, or the principal office of its counsel, a register (the “Register”) in which the Company shall keep a record of the Notes made by each Purchaser, payments to each Purchaser and any transfer of the rights of an Purchaser; provided that the Company shall have no obligation to update the register to reflect any sales, assignments or transfers made by the Purchasers in the event that the Purchasers fail to give the Company written notice as required under Section 9.10.2. The requirement that the ownership and transfer of the rights of the Purchasers under this Agreement shall be reflected in the Register is intended to ensure that the Notes qualify as an obligation issued in “registered form” as that term is used in Sections 163(f), 871(h), and 881(c) of the Code and shall be interpreted accordingly and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement.

 

9.10.4.          Any Revenue Participant may sell, assign, participate or transfer all or any part of their rights to the Revenue Stream to an Eligible Assignee with the written consent of the Company (not to be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned); provided that (x) the consent of the Company shall not be required (a) in the case of any sale, assignment, participation or transfer to any person that is not a direct competitor of the Company (as reasonably determined by the Majority Revenue Participant with notice to the Company), (b) in the case of any sale, assignment, participation or transfer to any Affiliate of a Revenue Participant that is an Eligible Assignee and (c) if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing; (y) such Revenue Participant and the assignee of such Revenue Participant shall have delivered an executed Assignment and Acceptance Agreement substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit D-2 to the Company and each other Purchaser; and (z) other than during an Event of Default, no Revenue Participant may sell, assign, participate or transfer all or any part of their rights in the Revenue Stream without the prior written consent of the Company if, as a result of such sale, assignment, participation or transfer, the resulting Revenue Participants constituting the Majority Revenue Participants would at any time be greater in number than one Revenue Participant except that all Affiliates of the original Revenue Participant shall be treated as if they were one entity for purposes of this clause (z) and there is a single point of contact representing the original Revenue Participant and all such Affiliates for purposes of this Agreement. In the case of any sale, assignment, transfer or negotiation of all or part of the rights of a Revenue Participant to the Revenue Stream that is authorized under this Section 9.10.4, the assignee, transferee or recipient shall have, to the extent of such sale, assignment, transfer or negotiation, the same rights, benefits and obligations as it would if it were a Revenue Participant hereunder (and shall be considered to substitute for the prior Revenue Participant for all purposes and definitions of this Agreement). The Revenue Participants agree to provide to the Company prompt written notice of any sales, assignments or transfers permitted hereunder, including the name and address of the transferee(s).

9.11.      Tax Treatment.

 

9.11.1.      The Company and each Revenue Participant intend that, solely for federal, state and local income tax purposes and for no other purpose, the relationship between the Revenue Participants and the Company that is created by this Agreement with respect to the Revenue Stream shall be treated as creating a partnership with respect to the Revenue Stream (the “Tax Partnership”), with the Revenue Participants and the Company being treated as partners of such partnership; it being understood for avoidance of doubt that the relationship between the Company and the Note Purchasers by this Agreement with respect to the Notes shall be a debtor-creditor relationship for all purposes, including for all federal, state and local income tax purposes.

 

9.11.2.      The Company and each Revenue Participant hereby agree that for purposes of determining the Company’s and each Revenue Participant’s distributive share of income, gain, loss and deduction of the Tax Partnership:

 

9.11.2.1.          The Tax Partnership shall maintain capital accounts for each of the Company and the Revenue Participants consistent with the rules of Treasury Regulations Section 1.704-1(b); it being understood that under no circumstances shall any such rule override the economic relationship between the parties as to their respective shares of the Monetization Revenues set forth in this Agreement;

 

9.11.2.2.          The Revenue Participants will be deemed to have purchased from the Company certain rights to exploit the Patents for $500,000 and to have contributed such rights to the Tax Partnership. The Company shall be deemed to have contributed to the Tax Partnership certain rights to exploit the Patents having a value of $889,000. The rights to exploit the Patents deemed contributed by the Revenue Participants and the Company to the Tax Partnership and described in this Section 9.11.2.2 are collectively referred to herein as the “Patent Rights”;

 

9.11.2.3.          The Tax Partnership shall allocate items of income, gain, loss and deduction to the Company and the Revenue Participants in a manner that causes the capital accounts of the parties to be equal to the amounts payable pursuant to this agreement if the Tax Partnership sold the Patent Rights and any other non-cash assets for an amount equal to the book value of the Patent Rights and any other non-cash assets (as determined pursuant to Treasury Regulations Section 1.704-1(b)) and distributed the proceeds and any other cash pursuant to this Agreement;

 

 -39- 

 

 

9.11.3.      The Company and each Revenue Participant shall file all tax returns and shall otherwise take all tax and financial reporting positions in a manner consistent with any treatment described in this Section 9.11.  The Company shall be the tax matters partner of the Tax Partnership.

 

9.11.4.      The Company and each of the Revenue Participants will cooperate to provide each other with any information reasonably requested by any of them in connection with the preparation or filing of any return, declaration, report, election, information return or other statement or form filed or required to be filed with any governmental authority relating to Taxes (a “Tax Return”) for any of them or for or relating to the partnership described in the first sentence of this Section 9.11. The Company shall be responsible for preparing and filing any Tax Return for or relating to such partnership, and the out-of-pocket costs incurred in connection with the preparation and filing of any Tax Return for or relating to the Tax Partnership shall be treated as an expense of the Tax Partnership.

 

9.11.5.      For the avoidance of doubt, no fiduciary relationship is intended to be created by this Agreement between the Company and any Revenue Participant.
