In addition, each Purchaser shall also receive a warrant, substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A (the Warrants and together with the Subscribed Shares and the shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrants (the Warrant Shares), collectively, the Securities), to purchase a number of shares of Common Stock equal to 30% of the number of Subscribed Shares. The Warrants will be exercisable for Warrant Shares for a 5-year period commencing at the Closing (as defined below) at an exercise price of $1.00 per share.
2. The Offering. This subscription is submitted to you in accordance with and subject to the terms and conditions described in this Subscription Agreement relating to the offering (the Offering) by the Company of Subscribed Shares and related Warrants. The closing of the Offering to which this Subscription Agreement relates (the Closing) may be scheduled by the Company at any time after the execution of this Subscription Agreement. Additional Securities may have been and may continue to be offered and sold from time to time in the Offering, until the date on which the Offering is concluded, through additional closings conducted by the Company with respect to those additional Securities sold.
3. Payment. The Purchaser will immediately make a wire transfer payment to the escrow account for this Offering, pursuant to the instructions included herein in the full amount of the purchase price of the Securities being subscribed for hereby. Wire transfer instructions are set forth on the Subscription Instructions included on the last page hereof under the heading To subscribe for Securities in the private offering of CytoDyn Inc. Together with a wire transfer (or, subject to the Companys approval in its sole discretion in lieu of a wire transfer, a check) for the full purchase price, the Purchaser is delivering a completed and executed omnibus Signature Page to this Subscription Agreement, a completed and executed Purchaser Questionnaire and Certification, and such other documents as required by the Placement Agent (as defined below).
4. Acceptance of Subscription. The Purchaser understands and agrees that the Company, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to accept or reject this or any other subscription for Securities, in whole or in part, notwithstanding prior receipt by the Purchaser of notice of acceptance of this subscription. The Company shall have no obligation hereunder, including the issuance of the Subscribed Shares and the Warrants, until the Company shall execute and deliver to the Purchaser an executed copy of this Subscription Agreement. If this subscription is rejected in whole or the Offering of Securities is terminated, all funds received from the Purchaser will be
returned without interest or offset, and this Subscription Agreement shall thereafter be of no further force or effect. If this subscription is rejected in part, the funds for the rejected portion of this subscription will be returned without interest or offset, and this Subscription Agreement will continue in full force and effect to the extent this subscription was accepted.
5. Restrictions on Transfer.
(a) The Purchaser understands and agrees that the Securities are subject to the transfer restrictions specified herein and in the Warrants, and that the Securities have not been registered under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any state or other jurisdiction; accordingly, the Securities (including the Warrant Shares) must be held indefinitely unless they are subsequently registered or unless, in the opinion of counsel reasonably acceptable to the Company, a sale or transfer may be made in compliance with the provisions of this Subscription Agreement and the Warrants, as the case may be, and without registration under United States securities laws and the applicable securities laws of any state or other jurisdiction. The Purchaser understands that the Securities are being sold without any Registration Rights.
(b) The Purchaser further agrees that legends may be placed on the Securities restricting the transfer thereof, and that appropriate notations may be made in the Companys stock books and stop transfer instructions placed with the transfer agent of the Common Stock, each in a manner generally consistent with the foregoing.
(c) The Purchaser is aware of the provisions of Rule 144 which, in substance, permit limited public resale of restricted securities acquired by non-affiliates of the issuer thereof, directly or indirectly, from the issuer (or from an affiliate of such issuer), in a non-public offering subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, if applicable, including, among other things, the availability of certain public information about the Company and the resale occurring not less than six (6) months after the party has purchased and paid for the securities to be sold.
(d) The Purchaser further understands that at the time the Purchaser wishes to sell Securities (including any Warrant Shares issued or issuable upon exercise of the Warrants) there may be no public market upon which to make such a sale, and that, even if such a public market then exists, the Company may not have filed all reports and other materials required under Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, other than Form 8-K reports, during the preceding 12 months, and that, in such event, because the Company is a former shell company as contemplated under paragraph (i) of Rule 144, Rule 144 will not be available to the Purchaser.
(e) The Purchaser further understands that, because the Company is a former shell company as contemplated under paragraph (i) of Rule 144, regardless of the amount of time that the Purchaser holds the Securities, sales of the Securities may only be made under Rule 144 upon the satisfaction of certain conditions, including that the Company has filed with the SEC, during the 12 months preceding the sale, all quarterly and annual reports required under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended; and that, accordingly, any restrictive legends placed on the Securities cannot be removed except in connection with an actual sale that is subject to an effective registration statement under, or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of, the Securities Act, and blanket removals of any such restrictive legends will not be possible.
(f) The Purchaser further understands that in the event all of the requirements of Rule 144 are not satisfied, registration under the Securities Act, compliance with Regulation A promulgated under the Securities Act, or some other registration exemption will be required; and that, notwithstanding the fact that Rule 144 is not exclusive, the staff of the SEC has expressed its opinion that persons proposing to sell private placement securities other than in a registered offering and otherwise than pursuant to Rule 144 will have a substantial burden of proof in establishing that an exemption from registration is available for such offers or sales, and that such persons and their respective brokers who participate in such transactions do so at their own risk.
6. Representations and Warranties.
The Purchaser hereby acknowledges, represents, warrants, and agrees as follows:
(a) None of the Securities offered hereby are registered under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any state or other jurisdiction. The Purchaser understands that the offering and sale of the Securities (including the issuance of Warrant Shares upon exercise of the Warrants) is intended to be exempt from registration under the Securities Act, by virtue of Section 4(a)(2) thereof and the provisions of Regulation D (Regulation D) as promulgated by the SEC thereunder, based, in part, upon the representations, warranties and agreements of the Purchaser contained in this Subscription Agreement.
(b) Prior to the execution of this Subscription Agreement, the Purchaser and the Purchasers attorney, accountant, purchaser representative and/or tax adviser, if any (collectively, the Advisers), have received all documents requested by the Purchaser, have carefully reviewed them and understand the information contained therein.
(c) Neither the SEC nor any state securities commission or other regulatory authority has approved the Subscribed Shares, the Warrants or the Warrant Shares, or passed upon or endorsed the merits of the offering of securities or confirmed the accuracy or determined the adequacy of the Offering. The Offering has not been reviewed by any federal, state or other regulatory authority.
(d) All documents, records, and books pertaining to the investment in the Securities have been made available for inspection by the Purchaser and the Purchasers Advisers, if any.

(f) In evaluating the suitability of an investment in the Company, the Purchaser has not relied upon any representation or information (oral or written) other than as stated in this Subscription Agreement.
(g) The Purchaser is unaware of, is in no way relying on, and did not become aware of the Offering of the Securities through or as a result of, any form of general solicitation or general advertising including, without limitation, any article, notice, advertisement or other communication published in any newspaper, magazine or similar media or broadcast over television, radio or the Internet (including, without limitation, internet blogs, bulletin boards, discussion groups and social networking sites) in connection with the Offering and sale of the Securities and is not subscribing for the Securities and did not become aware of the Offering of the Securities through or as a result of any seminar or meeting to which the Purchaser was invited by, or any solicitation of a subscription by, a person not previously known to the Purchaser in connection with investments in securities generally.
(h) The Purchaser, together with the Purchasers Advisers, if any, has such knowledge and experience in financial, tax, and business matters, and, in particular, investments in securities, so as to enable it to utilize the information made available to it in connection with the Offering to evaluate the merits and risks of an investment in the Securities and the Company and to make an informed investment decision with respect thereto.
(i) The Purchaser is aware that Paulson Investment Company, LLC (the Placement Agent), for the services it is providing in this Offering will receive, with respect to subscriptions made in this Offering through the Placement Agent, (1) a cash compensation equal to 12% of the gross proceeds received by the Company from such subscribers; (2) a warrant to purchase a number of shares equal to 12% of the aggregate number of Subscribed Shares issued to such subscribers, which is exercisable for a period of ten (10) years from the date of issuance at an exercise price equal to 100% of the purchase price for such Subscribed Shares and related Warrants and (3) a non-accountable expense fee of $50,000 to be paid upon the first closing of the Offering.
(j) The Purchaser is aware that the Placement Agent has acted as a placement agent and for the Company in numerous prior offerings of the Companys debt and equity securities and as an advisor in relation to an acquisition, and has received equity compensation for its services. As of October 18, 2021, the Placement Agent and its principals own an aggregate of 3,278,475 shares of the Companys Common Stock, and 1,882,627 warrants to purchase shares of the Companys Common Stock. Additionally, many of the Placement Agents registered representatives own shares of the Companys Common Stock and warrants to purchase the Companys Common Stock. The Purchaser further acknowledges that because of the ownership set forth herein Placement Agent and its officers and employees may have an incentive to sell the Securities to Purchaser beyond the fees for this Offering.
(k) Other than the commission payable to the Placement Agent as described herein, the Purchaser has taken no action that would give rise to any claim by any person for brokerage commissions, finders fees or the like relating to this Subscription Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby.
(l) The Purchaser is not relying on the Placement Agent, the Company or either of their respective employees or agents with respect to the legal, tax, economic and related considerations of an investment in the Securities, and the Purchaser has relied on the advice of, or has consulted with, only its own Advisers.

(n) The Purchaser understands and agrees that the Purchaser must bear the substantial economic risks of the investment in the Securities (including, upon exercise of the Warrants, the Warrant Shares) indefinitely because none of the Securities may be sold, hypothecated or otherwise disposed of unless subsequently registered under the Securities Act and the applicable securities laws of any state or other jurisdiction or an exemption from such registration is available. Legends shall be placed on the Securities to the effect that they have not been registered under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any state or other jurisdiction and appropriate notations thereof will be made in the Companys stock books. Stop transfer instructions will be placed with the transfer agent of the Securities. There will not be any assurance that such securities will be freely transferable at any time in the foreseeable future.
(o) The Purchaser has adequate means of providing for such Purchasers current financial needs and foreseeable contingencies and has no need for liquidity from its investment in the Securities for an indefinite period of time.
(p) The Purchaser is aware that an investment in the Securities is high risk, involving a number of very significant risks and has carefully read and considered the matters set forth under the caption Risk Factors in the Companys Form 10-K filed with the SEC on July 30, 2021 and subsequent reports (including the documents incorporated by reference therein) (the SEC Filings), and, in particular, acknowledges that the Company has significant operating losses since inception, immaterial revenues to date and limited assets, is engaged in a highly competitive business and will need additional capital which will result in dilution to the Purchaser if the Purchaser is not able to participate in future offerings. The Purchaser further acknowledges that the Purchaser is aware that the Company and certain executives have received subpoenas in connection with an investigation by the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) and that any actions taken by the DOJ against the Company or any of its executives could have a negative impact on the value of the Securities.
(q) The Purchaser meets the requirements of at least one of the suitability standards for an accredited investor as that term is defined in Regulation D.
(r) The Purchaser (i) if a natural person, represents that the Purchaser has reached the age of 21 and has full power and authority to execute and deliver this Subscription Agreement and all other related agreements or certificates and to carry out the provisions hereof and thereof; (ii) if a corporation, partnership, or limited liability company or partnership, or association, joint stock company, trust, unincorporated organization or other entity, represents that such entity was not formed for the specific purpose of acquiring the Securities, such entity is duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the state of its organization, the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby is authorized by, and will not result in a violation of state law or its charter or other organizational documents, such entity has full power and authority to
execute and deliver this Subscription Agreement and all other related agreements or certificates and to carry out the provisions hereof and thereof and to purchase and hold the securities constituting the Securities, the execution and delivery of this Subscription Agreement has been duly authorized by all necessary action, this Subscription Agreement has been duly executed and delivered on behalf of such entity and is a legal, valid and binding obligation of such entity; or (iii) if executing this Subscription Agreement in a representative or fiduciary capacity, represents that it has full power and authority to execute and deliver this Subscription Agreement in such capacity and on behalf of the subscribing individual, ward, partnership, trust, estate, corporation, or limited liability company or partnership, or other entity for whom the Purchaser is executing this Subscription Agreement, and such individual, partnership, ward, trust, estate, corporation, or limited liability company or partnership, or other entity has full right and power to perform pursuant to this Subscription Agreement and make an investment in the Company, and represents that this Subscription Agreement constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of such entity. The execution and delivery of this Subscription Agreement will not violate or be in conflict with any order, judgment, injunction, agreement or controlling document to which the Purchaser is a party or by which it is bound.
(s) The Purchaser and the Purchasers Advisers, if any, have had the opportunity to obtain any additional information, to the extent the Company has such information in its possession or could acquire it without unreasonable effort or expense, necessary to verify the accuracy of the information contained in the SEC Filings and all documents received or reviewed in connection with the purchase of the Securities and have had the opportunity to have representatives of the Company provide them with such additional information regarding the terms and conditions of this particular investment and the financial condition, results of operations, and business of the Company deemed relevant by the Purchaser or the Purchasers Advisers, if any, and all such requested information, to the extent the Company had such information in its possession or could acquire it without unreasonable effort or expense, has been provided to the full satisfaction of the Purchaser and its Advisers, if any.
(t) Any information which the Purchaser has heretofore furnished or is furnishing herewith to the Company is complete and accurate and may be relied upon by the Company in determining the availability of an exemption from registration under federal and state securities laws in connection with the Offering and sale of the Securities. The Purchaser further represents and warrants that it will notify and supply corrective information to the Company immediately upon the occurrence of any change therein occurring prior to the Companys issuance of the Securities.
(u) The Purchaser has significant prior investment experience, including investment in non-listed and non-registered securities. The Purchaser is knowledgeable about investment considerations in development-stage companies with limited operating histories. The Purchaser has a sufficient net worth to sustain a loss of its entire investment in the Company in the event such a loss should occur. The Purchasers overall commitment to investments which are not readily marketable is not excessive in view of the Purchasers net worth and financial circumstances and the purchase of the Securities will not cause such commitment to become excessive. The investment in the Securities is a suitable one for the Purchaser.
(v) The Purchaser is satisfied that the Purchaser has received adequate information with respect to all matters which the Purchaser or the Purchasers Advisers, if any, consider material to a decision to make this investment. The Purchaser is relying on the Purchasers own examination, together with the Purchasers Advisers, if any, of the Company and the terms of the Offering and sale of the Securities, including the merits and risks involved in making an investment decision.
(w) The Purchaser acknowledges that any estimates or forward-looking statements or projections included in the SEC Filings (including the documents incorporated by reference therein) were prepared by the Company in good faith but that the attainment of any such projections, estimates or forward-looking statements cannot be guaranteed by the Company and should not be relied upon.
(x) No oral or written representations have been made, or oral or written information furnished, to the Purchaser or the Purchasers Advisers, if any, in connection with the Offering which are in any way inconsistent with the information contained in this Subscription Agreement.
(y) Within five (5) days after receipt of a request from the Company, the Purchaser will provide such information and deliver such documents as may reasonably be necessary to comply with any and all laws and regulations to which the Company is subject.
(z) THE SECURITIES OFFERED HEREBY HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, OR THE SECURITIES LAWS OF ANY STATE OR OTHER JURISDICTION. THE SECURITIES ARE BEING OFFERED AND SOLD IN RELIANCE ON EXEMPTIONS FROM THE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS OF SAID ACT AND SUCH LAWS. THE SECURITIES ARE SUBJECT TO RESTRICTIONS ON TRANSFERABILITY AND RESALE AND MAY NOT BE TRANSFERRED OR RESOLD EXCEPT AS PERMITTED UNDER SAID ACT AND SUCH LAWS PURSUANT TO REGISTRATION OR EXEMPTION THEREFROM. THE SECURITIES HAVE NOT BEEN RECOMMENDED, APPROVED OR DISAPPROVED BY THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION, ANY STATE SECURITIES COMMISSION OR ANY OTHER REGULATORY AUTHORITY, NOR HAVE ANY OF THE FOREGOING AUTHORITIES PASSED UPON OR ENDORSED THE MERITS OF THIS OFFERING OR THE ACCURACY OR ADEQUACY OF THE MEMORANDUM OR THIS SUBSCRIPTION AGREEMENT. ANY REPRESENTATION TO THE CONTRARY IS UNLAWFUL.
(aa) In making an investment decision investors must rely on their own examination of the Company and the terms of the Offering and sale of the Securities, including the merits and risks involved. The Purchaser should be aware that it will be required to bear the financial risks of this investment for an indefinite period of time.
(bb) The Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that the Securities have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and that the Company has no present intention or obligation to so register the Securities, or any portion thereof, in the future.
(cc) (For ERISA plans only) The fiduciary of the ERISA plan (the Plan) represents that such fiduciary has been informed of and understands the Companys investment objectives, policies and strategies, and that the decision to invest plan assets (as such term is defined in
ERISA) in the Company is consistent with the provisions of ERISA that require diversification of plan assets and impose other fiduciary responsibilities.
