|Credit Facility:||This Warrant to Purchase Limited Liability Company Common Units (as amended and/or modified and in effect from time to time, the Warrant) is issued in connection with the First Amendment to Loan and Security Agreement dated as of even date herewith between Silicon Valley Bank and the Company, which amends the Loan and Security Agreement dated as of August 7, 2015, between Silicon Valley Bank and the Company (as amended and/or modified and in effect from time to time, the Loan Agreement).|
THIS WARRANT PROVIDES THAT, for good and valuable consideration, SILICON VALLEY BANK (together with any successor or permitted assignee or transferee of this Warrant or of any units issued upon exercise hereof, Holder) is entitled to purchase the number of fully paid and non-assessable units of limited liability company interest (the Units) of the Class (as defined below) of the above-named company (the Company) at the above-stated Warrant Price per Unit, all as set forth above and as adjusted pursuant to Section 2 of this Warrant, subject to the provisions and upon the terms and conditions set forth in this Warrant. Reference is made to Section 5.4 of this Warrant whereby Silicon Valley Bank shall transfer this Warrant to its parent company, SVB Financial Group.
This Warrant shall be exercisable for Common Units (as may be adjusted from time to time pursuant to the provisions of this Warrant, the Class) as further described and defined in, and having the relative rights, powers, preferences and privileges as set forth in, the Companys Amended and Restated Operating Agreement dated as of January 31, 2014, as amended and/or restated and in effect from time to time (the Operating Agreement). As used herein, units refers generally to limited liability company interests in the Company, whether such interests be styled as units, percentage interests, units or otherwise in the Operating Agreement.
SECTION 1. EXERCISE.
1.1 Method of Exercise. Holder may at any time and from time to time exercise this Warrant, in whole or in part, by delivering to the Company the original of this Warrant together with a duly executed Notice of Exercise in substantially the form attached hereto as Appendix 1 and, unless Holder is exercising this Warrant pursuant to a cashless exercise set forth in Section 1.2, a check, wire transfer of same-day funds (to an account designated by the Company), or other form of payment acceptable to the Company for the aggregate Warrant Price for the Units being purchased.
1.2 Cashless Exercise. On any exercise of this Warrant, in lieu of payment of the aggregate Warrant Price in the manner as specified in Section 1.1 above, but otherwise in accordance with the requirements of Section 1.1, Holder may elect to receive Units equal to the value of this Warrant, or portion hereof as to which this Warrant is being exercised. Thereupon, the Company shall issue to the Holder such number of fully paid and non-assessable Units as are computed using the following formula:
|X =||the number of Units to be issued to the Holder;|
|Y =||the number of Units with respect to which this Warrant is being exercised (inclusive of the Units surrendered to the Company in payment of the aggregate Warrant Price);|
|A =||the Fair Market Value (as determined pursuant to Section 1.3 below) of one Unit; and|
|B =||the Warrant Price.|
1.3 Fair Market Value. If the Companys common or ordinary units are then traded or quoted on a nationally recognized securities exchange, inter-dealer quotation system or over-the-counter market (a Trading Market) and the Class is common or ordinary units, the fair market value of a Unit shall be the closing price or last sale price of a common or ordinary unit reported for the Business Day immediately before the date on which Holder delivers this Warrant together with its Notice of Exercise to the Company. If the Companys common or ordinary units are then traded in a Trading Market and the Class is a series of convertible preferred units or other units convertible into common or ordinary units, the fair market value of a Unit shall be the closing price or last sale price of a common or ordinary unit reported for the Business Day immediately before the date on which Holder delivers this Warrant together with its Notice of Exercise to the Company multiplied by the number of common or ordinary units into which a unit of the Class is then convertible. If the Companys common or ordinary units are not then traded in a Trading Market, the Manager or Managers of the Company shall determine the fair market value of a Unit in its, his or their reasonable good faith judgment.
1.4 Delivery of Certificate and New Warrant. Within a reasonable time after Holder exercises this Warrant in the manner set forth in Section 1.1 or 1.2 above, if units of the Class are then certificated by the Company, the Company shall deliver to Holder a certificate representing the Units issued to Holder upon such exercise and, if this Warrant has not been fully exercised and has not expired, a new warrant of like tenor representing the Units not so acquired. If units of the Class are not then certificated by the Company, the Company will deliver to Holder such evidence of the issuance of such Units to Holder as required or permitted under the Operating Agreement or, if there be none, such evidence as Holder may reasonably request.
1.5 Replacement of Warrant. On receipt of evidence reasonably satisfactory to the Company of the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of this Warrant and, in the case of loss, theft or destruction, on delivery of an indemnity agreement reasonably satisfactory in form, substance and amount to the Company or, in the case of mutilation, on surrender of this Warrant to the Company for cancellation, the Company shall, within a reasonable time, execute and deliver to Holder, in lieu of this Warrant, a new warrant of like tenor and amount.
1.6 Treatment of Warrant Upon Acquisition of Company.
(a) Acquisition. For the purpose of this Warrant, Acquisition means any transaction or series of related transactions involving: (i) the sale, lease, exclusive license, or other disposition of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company; (ii) any merger or consolidation of the Company into or with another person or entity (other than a merger or consolidation effected exclusively to change the Companys domicile), or any other corporate reorganization, in which the members and other holders of units of the Company in their capacity as such immediately prior to such merger, consolidation or reorganization, own less than a majority of the Companys (or the surviving or successor entitys) outstanding voting power (even if such voting power be limited solely to such matters as required by applicable law) immediately after such merger, consolidation or reorganization (or, if such Company members and other holders of units beneficially own a majority of the outstanding voting power (even if such voting power be limited solely to such matters as required by applicable law) of the surviving or successor entity as of immediately after such merger, consolidation or reorganization, such surviving or successor entity is not the Company); or (iii) any sale or other transfer by the members and/or other holders of units of the Company of units representing at least a majority of the Companys then-total outstanding combined voting power (even if such voting power be limited solely to such matters as required by applicable law).
(b) Treatment of Warrant at Acquisition. In the event of an Acquisition in which the consideration to be received by the Companys members and other holders of units consists solely of cash, solely of Marketable Securities or a combination of cash and Marketable Securities (a Cash/Public Acquisition), and the fair market value of one Unit as determined in accordance with Section 1.3 above would be greater than the Warrant Price in effect on such date immediately prior to such Cash/Public Acquisition, and Holder has not exercised this Warrant pursuant to Section 1.1 above as to all Units, then this Warrant shall automatically be deemed to be Cashless Exercised pursuant to Section 1.2 above as to all Units effective immediately prior to and contingent upon the consummation of a Cash/Public Acquisition. In connection with such Cashless Exercise, Holder shall be deemed to have restated each of the representations and warranties in Section 4 of the Warrant as the date thereof and the Company shall promptly notify the Holder of the number of Shares (or such other securities) issued upon exercise. In the event of a Cash/Public Acquisition where the fair market value of one Unit as determined in accordance with Section 1.3 above would be less than the Warrant Price in effect immediately prior to such Cash/Public Acquisition, then this Warrant will expire immediately prior to the consummation of such Cash/Public Acquisition.
(c) Upon the closing of any Acquisition other than a Cash/Public Acquisition defined above, the acquiring, surviving or successor entity shall assume the obligations of this Warrant, and this Warrant shall thereafter be exercisable for the same securities and/or other property as would have been paid for the Units issuable upon exercise of the unexercised portion of this Warrant as if such Units were outstanding on and as of the closing of such Acquisition, subject to further adjustment from time to time in accordance with the provisions of this Warrant.
(d) As used in this Warrant, Marketable Securities means securities meeting all of the following requirements: (i) the issuer thereof is then subject to the reporting requirements of Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act), and is then current in its filing of all required reports and other information under the Act and the Exchange Act; (ii) the class and series of shares or other security of the issuer that would be received by Holder in connection with the Acquisition were Holder to exercise this Warrant on or prior to the closing thereof is then traded in Trading Market, and (iii) following the closing of such Acquisition, Holder would not be restricted from publicly re-selling all of the issuers shares and/or other securities that would be received by Holder in such Acquisition were Holder to exercise or convert this Warrant in full on or prior to the closing of such Acquisition, except to the extent that any such restriction (x) arises solely under federal or state securities laws, rules or regulations, and (y) does not extend beyond six (6) months from the closing of such Acquisition.
SECTION 2. ADJUSTMENTS TO THE SHARES AND WARRANT PRICE.
2.1 Unit Dividends, Splits, Etc. If the Company declares or pays a dividend or distribution on the outstanding units of the Class payable in additional units of the Class or other units, securities or property (other than cash), then upon exercise of this Warrant, for each Unit acquired, Holder shall receive, without additional cost to Holder, the total number and kind of units, securities and property which Holder would have received had Holder owned the Units of record as of the date the dividend or distribution occurred. If the Company subdivides the outstanding units of the Class by reclassification or otherwise into a greater number of units, the number of Units purchasable hereunder shall be proportionately increased and the Warrant Price shall be proportionately decreased. If the outstanding units of the Class are combined or consolidated, by reclassification or otherwise, into a lesser number of units, the Warrant Price shall be proportionately increased and the number of Units shall be proportionately decreased.
2.2 Reclassification, Exchange, Combinations or Substitution. Upon any event whereby all of the outstanding units of the Class are reclassified, exchanged, combined, substituted, or replaced for, into, with or by Company securities of a different class and/or series, then from and after the consummation of such event, this Warrant will be exercisable for the number, class and series of Company securities that Holder would have received had the Units been outstanding on and as of the consummation of such event, and subject to further adjustment thereafter from time to time in accordance with the provisions of this Warrant. The provisions of this Section 2.2 shall similarly apply to successive reclassifications, exchanges, combinations substitutions, replacements or other similar events.
2.3 Conversion of Convertible Units. If the Class is a class, type series or other designation of convertible preferred units or other units convertible into common or ordinary units, in the event that all outstanding units of the Class are converted, automatically or by action of the holders thereof, into common or ordinary units pursuant to the provisions of the Operating Agreement, including, without limitation, in connection with the Companys initial, underwritten public offering and sale of its units pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Act (the IPO), then from and after the date on which all outstanding units of the Class have been so converted, this Warrant shall be exercisable for such number of common or ordinary units into which the Units would have been converted had the Units been outstanding on the date of such conversion, and the Warrant Price shall equal the Warrant Price in effect as of immediately prior to such conversion divided by the number of common or ordinary units into which one Unit would have been converted, all subject to further adjustment thereafter from time to time in accordance with the provisions of this Warrant.
2.4 Adjustments for Diluting Issuances. Without duplication of any adjustment otherwise provided for in this Section 2, the number of common or ordinary units issuable upon conversion of the Units shall be subject to anti-dilution adjustment from time to time in the manner set forth in Section 3.03(d)(iv) of the Operating Agreement as if the Units were issued and outstanding on and as of the date of any such required adjustment.
2.5 No Fractional Unit. No fractional Unit shall be issuable upon exercise of this Warrant and the number of Units to be issued shall be rounded down to the nearest whole Unit. If a fractional Unit interest arises upon any exercise of the Warrant, the Company shall eliminate such fractional Unit interest by paying Holder in cash the amount computed by multiplying the fractional interest by (i) the fair market value (as determined in accordance with Section 1.3 above) of a full Unit, less (ii) the then-effective Warrant Price.
2.6 Notice/Certificate as to Adjustments. Upon each adjustment of the Warrant Price, Class and/or number of Units, the Company, at the Companys expense, shall notify Holder in writing within a reasonable time setting forth the adjustments to the Warrant Price, Class and/or number of Units and facts upon which such adjustment is based. The Company shall, upon written request from Holder, furnish Holder with a certificate of its Manager, including computations of such adjustment and the Warrant Price, Class and number of Units in effect upon the date of such adjustment.
