Any exercise of this Warrant shall be for a minimum of the lesser of 10,000 shares of Common Stock (determined prior to applying the cashless exercise formula, if applicable) or the remaining number of shares covered by this Warrant.
2.2 Exercise Procedure.
(a) This Warrant will be deemed to have been exercised at such time as the Company has received all of the following items (the Exercise Date):
(i) a completed Subscription Agreement as described in Section 2.4 hereof, executed by the Person who shall have the purchase rights represented by this Warrant and who shall exercise all or part of the purchase rights represented by this Warrant (the Purchaser);
(ii) this Warrant;
(iii) if this Warrant is not registered in the name of the Purchaser, an Assignment or Assignments in the form set forth in Exhibit B hereto, evidencing the assignment of this Warrant to the Purchaser; and
(iv) a wire transfer or check payable to the order of the Company in an amount equal to the product of the Exercise Price multiplied by the number of shares of Common Stock being purchased upon such exercise. Alternatively, if exercised by 10X Fund or, in the event of the liquidation and dissolution of the 10X Fund, the permitted transferee of the 10X Fund (but not otherwise), this Warrant may be exercised by means of a cashless exercise in which such Holder shall be entitled to receive a certificate for the number of shares equal to the quotient obtained by dividing [(A B) (X)] by (A), where:
(A) = the average of the high and low trading prices per share of Common Stock on the Trading Day preceding the date of such election;
(B) = the Exercise Price of the Warrants; and
(X) = the number of shares issuable upon the exercise of the Warrants in accordance with the terms of this Warrant.
(b) As soon as practicable after the exercise of this Warrant in full or in part, and in any event within ten (10) days after the Exercise Date, the Company at its expense will cause to be issued in the name of and delivered to the Purchaser, or as the Purchaser (upon payment by the Purchaser of any applicable transfer taxes) may direct, a certificate or certificates for the number of fully paid and non-assessable shares of Common Stock to which the Purchaser shall be entitled upon such exercise, together with any other stock or other securities and property (including cash, where applicable) to which the Purchaser is entitled upon exercise.
(c) Unless this Warrant has expired or all of the purchase rights represented hereby have been exercised, the Company at its expense will, within ten (10) days after the Exercise Date, issue and deliver to or upon the order of the Purchaser a new Warrant or Warrants of like tenor, in the name of the Purchaser or as the Purchaser (upon payment by the Purchaser of any applicable transfer taxes) may request, calling in the aggregate on the face or faces thereof for the number of shares of Common Stock remaining issuable under this Warrant.
(d) The Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of this Warrant will be deemed to have been issued to the Purchaser on the Exercise Date, and the Purchaser will be deemed for all purposes to have become the record holder of such Common Stock on the Exercise Date.
(e) The issuance of certificates for shares of Common Stock upon exercise of this Warrant will be made without charge to the Holder or the Purchaser for any issuance tax in respect thereof or any other cost incurred by the Company in connection with such exercise and the related issuance of shares of Common Stock.
(f) The Holder represents and warrants that at the time of any exercise of this warrant the Holder is an accredited investor, as such term is defined in Rule 501 promulgated under the Securities Act and acknowledges and agrees that the Company may, in its sole discretion, (i) require, as a condition to the exercise of this Warrant, that the Holder provide such written evidence that the Holder is an accredited investor as the time of exercise, and (ii) decline to issue the shares of Common Stock issuable upon such exercise if the Company is not satisfied that this warrant may be exercised by the Holder pursuant to a valid registration exemption from the Securities Act and any applicable state securities law.
2.3 Acknowledgement of Continuing Obligations. The Company will, at the time of the exercise of this Warrant, upon the request of the Purchaser, acknowledge in writing its continuing obligation to afford to the Purchaser any rights to which the Purchaser shall continue to be entitled after such exercise in accordance with the provisions of this Warrant, provided that if the Purchaser shall fail to make any such request, such failure shall not affect the continuing obligation of the Company to afford to the Purchaser any such rights.
2.4 Subscription Agreement. The Subscription Agreement will be substantially in the form set forth in Exhibit A hereto, except that if the shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of this Warrant are not to be issued in the name of the Purchaser, the Subscription Agreement will also state the name of the Person to whom the certificates for the shares of Common Stock are to be issued, and if the number of shares of Common Stock to be issued does not include all the shares of Common Stock issuable hereunder, it will also state the name of the Person to whom a new Warrant for the unexercised portion of the rights hereunder is to be delivered.
2.5 Fractional Shares. If a fractional share of Common Stock would, but for the provisions of Section 2.1 hereof, be issuable upon exercise of the rights represented by this Warrant, the Company will, within ten (10) days after the Exercise Date, deliver to the Purchaser a check payable to the Purchaser in lieu of such fractional share, in an amount equal to the Market Value of such fractional share as of the close of business on the Exercise Date.
3.1 Adjustments for Stock Splits, Etc. If the Company shall at any time after the Issue Date subdivide its outstanding Common Stock, by split-up or otherwise, or combine its outstanding Common Stock, or issue additional shares of its capital stock in payment of a stock dividend in respect of its Common Stock, the number of shares issuable on the exercise of the unexercised portion of this Warrant shall forthwith be proportionately increased in the case of a subdivision or stock dividend, or proportionately decreased in the case of a combination, and the Exercise Price then applicable to shares covered by the unexercised portion of this Warrant shall forthwith be proportionately decreased in the case of a subdivision or stock dividend, or proportionately increased in the case of combination.
3.2 Adjustment for Reclassification, Reorganization, Etc. In case of any reclassification, capital reorganization, or change of the outstanding Common Stock (other than as a result of a subdivision, combination or stock dividend), or in the case of any consolidation of the Company with, or merger of the Company into, another Person (other than a consolidation or merger in which the Company is the continuing corporation and which does not result in any reclassification or change of the outstanding Common Stock of the Company), or in case of any sale or conveyance to one or more Persons of the property of the Company as an entirety or substantially as an entirety at any time prior to the expiration of this Warrant, then, as a condition of such reclassification, reorganization, change, consolidation, merger, sale or conveyance, lawful provision shall be made, and duly executed documents evidencing the same from the Company or
its successor shall be delivered to the Holder of this Warrant, so that the Holder of this Warrant shall have the right at any time prior to the expiration of this Warrant to purchase, at a total price not to exceed that payable upon the exercise of the unexercised portion of this Warrant, the kind and amount of shares of stock and other securities and property receivable upon such reclassification, reorganization, change, consolidation, merger, sale or conveyance by a holder of the number of shares of Common Stock of the Company as to which this Warrant was exercisable immediately prior to such reclassification, reorganization, change, consolidation, merger, sale or conveyance, and in any such case appropriate provision shall be made with respect to the rights and interests of the Holder of this Warrant to the end that the provisions hereof (including, without limitation, provisions for the adjustment of the Exercise Price and of the number of shares purchasable upon exercise of this Warrant) shall thereafter be applicable in relation to any shares of stock, and other securities and property, thereafter deliverable upon exercise hereof. If, as a consequence of any such transaction, solely cash, and no securities or other property of any kind, is deliverable upon exercise of this Warrant, then, in such event, the Company may terminate this Warrant by giving the Holder hereof written notice thereof. Such notice shall specify the date (at least thirty (30) days subsequent to the date on which notice is given) on which, at 3:00 P.M., Atlanta, Georgia time, this Warrant shall terminate. Notwithstanding any such notice, this Warrant shall remain exercisable, and otherwise in full force and effect, until such time of termination.
3.3 Certificate of Adjustment. Whenever the Exercise Price or the number of shares issuable hereunder is adjusted, as herein provided, the Company shall promptly deliver to the registered Holder of this Warrant a certificate of the Treasurer of the Company, which certificate shall state (i) the Exercise Price and the number of shares of Common Stock issuable hereunder after such adjustment, (ii) the facts requiring such adjustment, and (iii) the method of calculation for such adjustment and increase or decrease.
3.4 Small Adjustments. No adjustment in the Exercise Price shall be required unless such adjustment would require an increase or decrease in the Exercise Price of at least one percent; provided, however, that any adjustments which by reason of this Section 3.4 are not required to be made immediately shall be carried forward and taken into account at the time of exercise of this Warrant or any subsequent adjustment in the Exercise Price which, singly or in combination with any adjustment carried forward, is required to be made under Sections 3.1 or 3.2.
4. Reservation of Stock, etc., Issuable on Exercise of Warrant. The Company will at all times reserve and keep available, solely for issuance and delivery upon the exercise of this Warrant, all shares of Common Stock from time to time issuable upon the exercise of this Warrant.
5. Disposition of This Warrant, Common Stock, Etc.
(a) The Holder of this Warrant and any permitted transferee hereof or of the Common Stock with respect to which this Warrant may be exercisable, by their acceptance hereof, hereby understand and agree that this Warrant and the Common Stock with respect to which this Warrant may be exercisable have not been registered under the Securities Act, and may not be sold, pledged, hypothecated, donated, or otherwise transferred (whether or not for consideration) without an effective registration statement under the Act or an opinion of counsel satisfactory to the Company and/or submission to the Company of such other evidence as may be satisfactory to counsel to the Company, in each such case, to the effect that any such transfer shall not be in
violation of the Act. It shall be a condition to the transfer of this Warrant that any permitted transferee thereof deliver to the Company its written agreement to accept and be bound by all of the terms and conditions of this Warrant. The foregoing notwithstanding, the Company acknowledges its obligations as set forth in the Registration Rights Agreement to register the shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise hereof.
(b) Except to the extent the resale of the shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise hereof are registered for resale, or may be sold to the public pursuant to Rule 144(b)(1) under the Securities Act, the certificates of the Company that will evidence the shares of Common Stock with respect to which this Warrant may be exercisable will be imprinted with a conspicuous legend in substantially the following form:
THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE ACT), AND MAY NOT BE SOLD, PLEDGED, HYPOTHECATED, DONATED OR OTHERWISE TRANSFERRED (WHETHER OR NOT FOR CONSIDERATION) BY THE HOLDER WITHOUT AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT UNDER THE ACT OR AN OPINION OF COUNSEL SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY AND/OR SUBMISSION TO THE COMPANY OF SUCH OTHER EVIDENCE AS MAY BE SATISFACTORY TO COUNSEL TO THE COMPANY, IN EACH SUCH CASE, TO THE EFFECT THAT ANY SUCH TRANSFER SHALL NOT BE IN VIOLATION OF THE ACT.
Except as set forth in the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company has not agreed to register any of the Holders shares of Common Stock of the Company with respect to which this Warrant may be exercisable for distribution in accordance with the provisions of the Securities Act, and the Company has not agreed to comply with any exemption from registration under the Act for the resale of the Holders shares of Common Stock with respect to which this Warrant may be exercised. Hence, it is the understanding of the Holder of this Warrant that by virtue of the provisions of certain rules respecting restricted securities promulgated by the SEC, the shares of Common Stock of the Company with respect to which this Warrant may be exercisable may be required to be held indefinitely, unless and until registered under the Securities Act (as contemplated by the Registration Rights Agreement), unless an exemption from such registration is available, in which case the Holder may still be limited as to the number of shares of Common Stock of the Company with respect to which this Warrant may be exercised that may be sold from time to time.
6. Rights and Obligations of Warrant Holder.
6.1. Nomination of One Director. For so long as 10X Fund holds this Warrant and there are unexpired rights to exercise this Warrant to receive shares of Common Stock, the 10X Fund (but not its transferee) shall have the right to nominate one director to serve on the Board of Directors of the Company. The Company shall take all reasonably necessary or desirable actions within its control (including without limitation calling special meetings of the Board of Directors, nominating such person designated by 10X Fund as a director on the applicable proxy statement and recommending his or her election) to permit the 10X Fund to appoint one member of the board of directors of the Company. The Board of Directors shall not nominate more directors for
election than there are seats on the Board. James Czirr is approved as a director nominee on behalf of 10X Fund. 10X Fund may nominate a person other than and in lieu of James Czirr. If James Czirr resigns as a director during his term of service, the Company will appoint a nominee selected by 10X Fund to serve the remainder of the term until the next annual meeting of stockholders. The foregoing provision is included in other warrants issued or to be issued to 10X Fund, which constitute multiple expressions of a single right. For the avoidance of doubt the right granted to 10X Fund in this Warrant and the other warrants in the aggregate is the right to nominate a total of one director.
6.2 Other Rights. Except as provided in Section 6.1 above, the Holder of this Warrant shall not, by virtue hereof, be entitled to any voting rights or other rights as a stockholder of the Company. No provision of this Warrant, in the absence of affirmative actions by the Holder to purchase Common Stock of the Company by exercising this Warrant, and no enumeration in this Warrant of the rights or privileges of the Holder, will give rise to any liability of such Holder for the Exercise Price of Common Stock acquirable by exercise hereof or as a stockholder of the Company.
7. Transfer of Warrants. In the event of the liquidation and dissolution of the Holder (but not otherwise) and subject to compliance with the restrictions on transfer applicable to this Warrant referred to in Section 5 hereof, this Warrant and all rights hereunder are transferable, in whole or in part, without charge to the registered Holder, upon surrender of this Warrant with a properly executed Assignment (in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit B), to the Company, and the Company at its expense will issue and deliver to or upon the order of the Holder hereof a new Warrant or Warrants in such denomination or denominations as may be requested, but otherwise of like tenor, in the name of the Holder or as the Holder (upon payment of any applicable transfer taxes) may direct.
8. Replacement of Warrants. Upon receipt of evidence reasonably satisfactory to the Company of the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of any Warrant and, in the case of any such loss, theft or destruction, upon delivery of an indemnity agreement reasonably satisfactory in form and amount to the Company or, in the case of any such mutilation, upon surrender and cancellation of such Warrant, the Company at its expense will execute and deliver, in lieu thereof, a new Warrant of like tenor.
9. Company Records. Until this Warrant is transferred on the books of the Company, the Company may treat the registered Holder hereof as the absolute owner hereof for all purposes, notwithstanding any notice to the contrary.
10.1 Notices. All notices and other communications from the Company to the Holder of this Warrant shall be mailed by first class mail, postage prepaid, to such address as may have been furnished to the Company in writing by such Holder, or, until an address is so furnished, to and at the address of the last Holder of this Warrant who has so furnished an address to the Company. All communications from the Holder of this Warrant to the Company shall be mailed by first class mail, postage prepaid, to Galectin Therapeutics, Inc., 4960 Peachtree Industrial Blvd, Suite 240, Norcross, GA 30071 Attn: Chief Financial Officer, or such other address as may have been furnished to the Holder in writing by the Company.
10.2 Amendment and Waiver. Except as otherwise provided herein, this Warrant and any term hereof may be amended, waived, discharged or terminated only by an instrument in writing signed by the party against which enforcement of such amendment, waiver, discharge or termination is sought.
10.3 Governing Law; Descriptive Headings. This Warrant shall be construed and enforced in accordance with and governed by the laws of the State of Delaware. The headings in this Warrant are for purposes of reference only, and shall not limit or otherwise affect any of the terms hereof.
10.4 Counterparts. This Warrant may be executed in counterparts, and the counterparts shall together constitute a single agreement.
