3.Exercise of Warrant.
a. Exercise Procedure. Subject to Section 3(b), this Warrant may be exercised for any or all unexercised Warrant Shares upon:
i. surrender of this Warrant to the Company at its then principal executive offices, together with a notice of exercise (each a “Notice of Exercise”) substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A, duly completed (including specifying the number of Warrant Shares to be purchased) and executed; and
ii. payment to the Company of the Aggregate Exercise Price in accordance with Section 3(c).
b. Company Cash Payment Option. Notwithstanding any provision in this Warrant to the contrary, in lieu of delivering Warrant Shares to the Holder upon any exercise of this Warrant, the Company shall have the option (the “Company Cash Payment Option”), exercisable in its sole discretion, to pay the Holder an amount (such amount, the “Cash Payment Amount”) in cash equal to (i) the aggregate Fair Market Value of the Common Stock for the Warrant Shares then being exercised, minus (ii) the Aggregate Exercise Price for such Warrant Shares. In the event that the Company desires to elect the Company Cash Payment Option, the Company shall notify the Holder of such election in writing within three (3) Business Days following the Company’s receipt of the Notice of Exercise, and shall pay the Cash Payment Amount by wire transfer to an account designated in writing by the Holder as soon as practicable (and in no event longer than three (3) Business Days) following the Company’s receipt of such account designation.
c. Payment of the Aggregate Exercise Price. If the Company does not exercise the Company Cash Payment Option, payment of the Aggregate Exercise Price shall be made, at the option of the Holder as expressed in the Notice of Exercise, by the following methods:
i. by delivery to the Company of a certified or official bank check payable to the order of the Company or by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account designated in writing by the Company, in the amount of such Aggregate Exercise Price; or
ii. by instructing the Company to withhold a number of Warrant Shares then issuable upon exercise of this Warrant with an aggregate Fair Market Value as of the Exercise Date equal to such Aggregate Exercise Price.
In the event of any withholding of Warrant Shares pursuant to clause (ii) above where the number of shares whose value is equal to the Aggregate Exercise Price is not a whole number, the number of Warrant Shares withheld by or surrendered to the Company shall be rounded up to the nearest whole share and the Company shall promptly make a cash payment to the Holder based on the incremental fraction of a Warrant Share being so withheld by or surrendered to the Company in an amount equal to the product of (x) such incremental fraction of a Warrant Share being so withheld or surrendered multiplied by (y) the Fair Market Value of one Warrant Share as of the Exercise Date.
d. Delivery of Stock Certificates and/or Book-Entry Shares. Upon receipt by the Company of a Notice of Exercise, surrender of this Warrant and payment of the Aggregate Exercise Price (in accordance with Section 3(a) and Section 3(c) hereof), and provided the Company has not exercised the Company Cash Payment Option, the Company shall, as promptly as practicable, and in any event within three (3) Business Days thereafter, at the Company’s option, either (i) execute (or cause to be executed) and deliver (or cause to be delivered) to the Holder a certificate or certificates representing the Warrant Shares issuable upon such exercise or (ii) cause to be issued to such Holder by entry on the books of the Company (or the Company’s transfer agent, if any) the Warrant Shares issuable upon such exercise, in each case, together with cash in lieu of any fraction of a share, as provided in Section 3(c). The stock certificate or certificates or book-entry interests of Warrant Shares so delivered or issued, as the case may be, shall be, to the extent possible, in such denomination or denominations as the exercising Holder shall reasonably request in the Notice of Exercise and shall be registered in the name of the Holder or, subject to compliance with Section 5 below, such other Person’s name as shall be designated in the Notice of Exercise. For so long as the Common Stock is listed on a national securities exchange or quoted on an automated quotation service, the Company will (A) procure, at its sole expense, the listing or quotation, as applicable, of the Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise of this Warrant, subject to issuance or notice of issuance, on all principal stock exchanges or quotation services on which the Common Stock is then listed or traded, and (B) maintain such listings or quotations of such Warrant Shares at all times after issuance. This Warrant shall be deemed to have been exercised and such certificate or certificates or book-entry interests of Warrant Shares shall be deemed to have been issued, and the Holder or any other Person so designated to be named therein shall be deemed to have become a holder of record of such Warrant Shares for all purposes, as of the close of business on the Exercise Date.
e. Delivery of New Warrant. Unless this Warrant shall have been fully exercised, the Company shall, at the time of delivery of the certificate or certificates or book-entry interests representing the Warrant Shares being issued in accordance with Section 3(d) hereof, deliver to the Holder a new Warrant evidencing the rights of the Holder to purchase the unexpired and unexercised Warrant Shares called for by this Warrant. Such new Warrant shall in all other respects be identical to this Warrant.
f. Valid Issuance of Warrant and Warrant Shares; Payment of Taxes. With respect to the exercise of this Warrant, the Company hereby represents, warrants, covenants and agrees as follows:
i. This Warrant is, and any Warrant issued in substitution for or replacement of this Warrant shall be, upon issuance, duly authorized and validly issued.
ii. All Warrant Shares issuable upon the exercise of this Warrant pursuant to the terms hereof shall be, upon issuance, validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable, issued without violation of any preemptive or similar rights of any stockholder of the Company and free and clear of all liens (other than those as a result of any action by the Holder or such other Person to whom such Warrant Shares are issued, or as exist under applicable securities laws).
iii. The Company shall pay all expenses in connection with, and all taxes and other governmental charges that may be imposed with respect to, the issuance or delivery of Warrant Shares upon exercise of this Warrant; provided, that the Company shall not be required to pay any tax or governmental charge that may be imposed with respect to any applicable withholding or the issuance or delivery of the Warrant Shares to any Person other than the Holder, and no such issuance or delivery shall be made unless and until the Person requesting such issuance has paid to the Company the amount of any such tax, or has established to the reasonable satisfaction of the Company that such tax has been paid.
g. Reservation of Shares. During the Exercise Period, the Company shall at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized but unissued Common Stock or treasury shares constituting Warrant Shares, solely for the purpose of issuance upon the exercise of this Warrant, the maximum number of Warrant Shares issuable upon the exercise of this Warrant, and the par value per Warrant Share shall at all times be less than or equal to the applicable Exercise Price. The Company shall not increase the par value of any Warrant Shares receivable upon the exercise of this Warrant above the Exercise Price then in effect, and shall take all such actions as may be necessary or appropriate in order that the Company may validly and legally issue fully paid and nonassessable shares of Common Stock upon the exercise of this Warrant.
h. NYSE Exchange Cap. The Company shall not be obligated to issue any shares of Common Stock upon exercise of this Warrant, and the Holder of this Warrant shall not have the right to receive upon exercise of this Warrant any shares of Common Stock, if the issuance of such shares of Common Stock (taken together with any prior issuance of shares upon the exercise of this Warrant and any prior or concurrent proposed issuance of shares upon the exercise of warrants for the purchase of Common Stock by Other Holders) would exceed the aggregate number of shares of Common Stock which the Company may then issue without breaching the Company’s obligations under the rules or regulations of the New York Stock Exchange (the “Exchange Cap”), except that such limitation shall not apply in the event that the Company obtains the approval of its stockholders as required by the applicable rules of the
New York Stock Exchange for issuances of Common Stock in excess of such amount. Until such approval is obtained, the Holder shall not be issued in the aggregate, upon exercise of this Warrant, shares of Common Stock in an amount greater than the Exchange Cap (with any cap to be determined on a pro rata basis among all applicable Other Holders then exercising their warrants). In the event that the Holder shall sell or otherwise transfer any of such Holder's Warrants, the restrictions of the prior sentence shall apply to such transferee. For the avoidance of doubt, if this Warrant is exercised and the Company cannot issue the requisite amount of Common Stock in connection with such exercise as a result of the Exchange Cap, the Company shall exercise the Company Cash Payment Option.
4.Adjustments. In order to prevent dilution of the purchase rights granted under this Warrant, the Warrant Share Number issuable upon exercise of this Warrant shall be subject to adjustment (an “Adjustment”) from time to time as provided in this Section 4 (in each case, after taking into consideration any prior Adjustments pursuant to this Section 4); provided, that if more than one subsection of this Section 4 is applicable to a single event, the subsection shall be applied that produces the largest adjustment and no single event shall cause an adjustment under more than one subsection of this Section 4 so as to result in duplication.
a. Adjustment to Number of Warrant Shares Upon Dividend, Subdivision or Combination of Common Stock. If the Company shall, at any time or from time to time after the Original Issue Date, (i) pay a dividend or make any other distribution upon the Common Stock or any other capital stock of the Company payable in shares of Common Stock or in Options or Convertible Securities to the holders of the Common Stock, or (ii) subdivide (by any stock split, recapitalization or otherwise) its outstanding shares of Common Stock into a greater number of shares, in each case other than any such transaction covered by Section 4(b), the Warrant Share Number immediately prior to any such dividend, distribution or subdivision shall be proportionately increased so that the Holder shall be entitled to receive upon the exercise of this Warrant the number of shares of Common Stock or other securities of the Company that the Holder would have owned or would have been entitled to receive upon or by reason of any event described above, had this Warrant been exercised or converted immediately prior to the occurrence of such event. If the Company at any time combines (by combination, reverse stock split or otherwise) its outstanding shares of Common Stock into a smaller number of shares, the Warrant Share Number immediately prior to such combination shall be proportionately decreased so that the Holder shall be entitled to receive upon the exercise of this Warrant the number of shares of Common Stock or other securities of the Company that the Holder would have owned or would have been entitled to receive upon or by reason of any event described above, had this Warrant been exercised or converted immediately prior to the occurrence of such event. Any Adjustment under this Section 4(a) shall become effective immediately after the open of business on the Ex-dividend Date for such dividend or immediately after the open of business on the effective date for such subdivision or combination.
b. Adjustment Upon Reorganization, Reclassification, Consolidation or Merger. In the event of any (i) capital reorganization of the Company, (ii) reclassification of the stock of the Company
(other than a change in par value or from par value to no par value or from no par value to par value or as a result of a stock dividend or subdivision, split-up or combination of shares), (iii) consolidation or merger of the Company with or into another Person, (iv) sale of all or substantially all of the Company’s assets to another Person, (v) Deemed Liquidation Event or (vi) other similar transaction, in each case which entitles all or substantially all of the holders of Common Stock to receive (either directly or upon subsequent liquidation) stock, securities, cash or other assets with respect to or in exchange for Common Stock, each Warrant shall, immediately prior to the time of such reorganization, reclassification, consolidation, merger, sale or similar transaction, become exercisable for the kind and number of shares of stock, securities, cash or other assets resulting from such transaction to which the Holder would have been entitled as a holder of the applicable number of Warrant Shares then issuable hereunder as a result of such exercise if the Holder had exercised this Warrant in full immediately prior to the time of such reorganization, reclassification, consolidation, merger, sale or similar transaction and acquired the applicable number of Warrant Shares then issuable hereunder as a result of such exercise. In determining the kind and amount of stock, securities or the property receivable upon exercise of this Warrant following the consummation of any such transaction, if the holders of Common Stock have the right to elect the kind or amount of consideration receivable upon consummation of such transaction, then the Holder shall have the right to make a similar election (including, without limitation, being subject to similar proration constraints) upon exercise of this Warrant with respect to the number of shares of stock or other securities or property which the Holder will receive upon exercise of this Warrant. As applicable, the Company may deliver a replacement warrant reflecting the kind and number of shares of stock, securities, cash or other assets for which Warrant is then exercisable.
d. Other Events. For so long as the Holder holds this Warrant or any portion thereof, if any event occurs as to which the provisions of this Section 4 are not strictly applicable or, if strictly applicable, would not, in the good faith judgment of the Board, fairly and adequately protect the purchase rights of the Warrant in accordance with the essential intent and principles of such provisions, then the Board shall make such adjustments in the application of such provisions, in accordance with such essential intent and principles, as shall be reasonably necessary, in the good faith opinion of the Board, to protect such purchase rights as aforesaid.
e. Notice of Adjustment Event. In the event that the Company shall propose to take any action of the type described in this Section 4 (but only if the action of the type described in this Section 4 would result in an adjustment in the Exercise Price or the number of Warrant Shares into which this Warrant is exercisable or a change in the type of securities or property to be delivered upon exercise of this Warrant), the Company shall use its commercially reasonable efforts (consistent with any of its then applicable legal and contractual obligations) to give prior notice to the Holder, which notice shall specify the record date, if any, with respect to any such action and the approximate date on which such action is to take place. Such notice shall also set forth the facts with respect thereto as shall be reasonably necessary to indicate the effect on the Exercise Price and the number, kind or class of shares or other securities or property which
shall be deliverable upon exercise of this Warrant. Failure to give such notice, or any defect therein, shall not affect the legality or validity of any such action.
f. Adjustment Certificate. As promptly as reasonably practicable following any adjustment of the number of Warrant Shares pursuant to the provisions of this Section 4, the Company shall furnish to the Holder a certificate of an officer of the Company setting forth in reasonable detail such Adjustment and the facts upon which it is based and certifying the calculation thereof.
5.Transfer of Warrant. This Warrant and rights hereunder are not transferable, in whole or in part, by the Holder, except with the prior written consent of the Company; provided, however, that the Holder may transfer this Warrant, in whole or in part, to any Affiliate of Holder who is or hereafter becomes a lender under the Credit Agreement. Holder shall provide reasonable prior written notice to the Company of any proposed transfer of this Warrant or any of the rights hereunder and, following such transfer, without charge to the Holder, upon surrender of this Warrant to the Company at its then principal executive offices with a properly completed and duly executed assignment agreement in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Company, together with funds sufficient to pay any transfer taxes described in the proviso to Section 3(f)(iii) in connection with the making of such transfer. Upon such compliance, surrender and delivery and, if required, such payment, the Company shall promptly execute and deliver a new Warrant or Warrants in the name of the assignee or assignees and in the denominations specified in such instrument of assignment, and shall promptly issue to the assignor a new Warrant evidencing the portion of this Warrant, if any, not so assigned and this Warrant shall promptly be cancelled.
6.Holder Not Deemed a Stockholder; Limitations on Liability. Except as expressly set forth herein, this Warrant does not entitle the Holder to any voting rights or other rights as a shareholder of the Company until the Holder has received Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise of this Warrant pursuant to the terms hereof, nor shall anything contained in this Warrant be construed to confer upon the Holder, as such, any of the rights of a stockholder of the Company or any right to vote, give or withhold consent to any corporate action (whether any reorganization, issue of stock, reclassification of stock, consolidation, merger, conveyance or otherwise), receive notice of meetings, receive dividends, distributions or subscription rights, or otherwise. In addition, nothing contained in this Warrant shall be construed as imposing any liabilities on the Holder to purchase any securities (upon exercise of this Warrant or otherwise) or as a stockholder of the Company, whether such liabilities are asserted by the Company or by creditors of the Company.
7.Replacement on Loss; Division and Combination. Upon receipt of evidence reasonably satisfactory to the Company of the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of this Warrant and upon delivery of an indemnity reasonably satisfactory to it and, in case of mutilation, upon surrender of such Warrant for cancellation to the Company, the Company shall execute and deliver to the Holder, in lieu hereof, a new Warrant of like tenor and exercisable for an equivalent number of Warrant Shares as the Warrant so lost, stolen, mutilated or destroyed.

In accordance with, and not in limitation of, the foregoing, the Company
will at no time close its transfer books against transfer of this Warrant in any manner which interferes with the timely exercise of this Warrant
11.Prohibited Actions. The Company agrees that it will not take any action which would entitle the Holder to an adjustment of the Exercise Price or the number of Warrant Shares this Warrant shall be exercisable for if the total number of shares of Common Stock issuable after such action upon exercise of this Warrant, together with all shares of Common Stock then outstanding and all shares of Common Stock then issuable upon the exercise of all outstanding options, warrants, conversion and other rights, would exceed the total number of shares of Common Stock then authorized by its Certificate of Incorporation.

17.Amendment and Modification; Waiver. Except as otherwise provided herein, this Warrant may only be amended, modified or supplemented by an agreement in writing signed by each party hereto. No waiver by the Company or the Holder of any of the provisions hereof shall be effective unless explicitly set forth in writing and signed by the party so waiving. No waiver by any party shall operate or be construed as a waiver in respect of any failure, breach or default not expressly identified by such written waiver, whether of a similar or different character, and whether occurring before or after that waiver.
