Each Note may be converted into any of the current or future authorized class or series of capital stock of the Company issuable upon conversion of the Notes (as defined below) of the Company as provided in such Note.
2.1 Closing Date. The closing of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (the “Closing”) shall be held on the Effective Date or at such other time as the Company and the Purchasers shall agree (the “Closing Date”).
(a) At or prior to the Closing, each Purchaser shall, in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, deliver to the Company: (i) this Agreement duly executed by such Purchaser; (ii) a wire transfer of immediately available funds in an amount equal to such Purchaser’s Loan Amount; and (iii) such other documents relating to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement as the Company shall reasonably require.
(b) At or prior to the Closing, the Company shall, in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, deliver to each Purchaser: (i) this Agreement duly executed by the Company; (ii) the Notes required to be issued in connection with the delivery of such Purchaser’s Loan Amounts; and (iii) such other documents relating to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement as the Purchasers shall reasonably require.
|3.||Representations, Warranties and Covenants of the Company|
The Company hereby represents and warrants to the Purchasers, as of the date hereof and as of the Closing Date, as follows:
3.1 Organization; Good Standing and Qualification. The Company is a corporation duly organized, validly existing, and in good standing under the laws of the State of Delaware and has all requisite corporate power and authority to own its property and carry on its business as now conducted. The Company is duly qualified to transact business and is in good standing in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and in each jurisdiction in which its ownership of property or the nature of the business conducted by it makes such qualification necessary.
3.2 Corporate Power. The Company has all requisite corporate power to (i) execute and deliver this Agreement and the Notes and any other document provided for herein or by any of the foregoing (collectively, as the same may from to time be amended, modified, supplemented or restated, the “Transaction Documents”) and to carry out and perform its obligations under the terms of the Transaction Documents.
(a) Authorization. The execution and delivery of each of the Transaction Documents by the Company and the consummation by the Company of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby, including, without limitation, the issuance of the Notes and the issuance of the current or future authorized class or series of capital stock of the Company, when issued, pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Notes (the “Capital Stock,” and, together with the Notes, the “Securities”), was duly authorized by the Company’s board of directors. Other than those consents and authorizations obtained by the Company prior to the date hereof that are in full force and effect on the Closing Date and except for any required stockholder approval of the Company as set forth in this Agreement, no further consent or authorization is required by the Company, its board of directors or its stockholders. Each of the Transaction Documents has been duly executed and delivered by the Company, and constitutes the legal, valid and binding obligations of the Company enforceable in accordance with its terms, subject to laws of general application relating to equitable principles, bankruptcy, insolvency and the relief of debtors. Upon conversion of the Notes into Capital Stock in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement and such Notes, the Capital Stock will be validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable and free of any liens or encumbrances. The issuance of the Notes (and the Capital Stock) pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement will not give rise to any preemptive rights or rights of first refusal granted by the Company, and the Notes (and the Capital Stock) will be issued in compliance with all applicable federal and state securities laws, and will be free of any liens or encumbrances; provided, however, that the Notes may be subject to restrictions on transfer as set out in the Transaction Documents or under state and/or federal securities laws as set forth herein or as otherwise required by such laws at the time the transfer is proposed. The issuance of the Notes (and the Capital Stock) does not and will not cause any dilution adjustment in any existing securities of the Company, and each Purchaser hereby waives any dilution adjustment that might otherwise result from the issuance of such Purchaser’s Note (and the Capital Stock) pursuant to the terms of any existing security held by such Purchaser.
3.3 Governmental Consents. All consents, approvals, orders, or authorizations of, or registrations, qualifications, designations, declarations, or filings with, any governmental authority, required on the part of the Company in connection with the valid execution and delivery of the Transaction Documents, the issuance of the Notes or the consummation of any other transaction contemplated hereby shall have been obtained and will be effective at the Closing, except for (i) any stockholder approval described in this Agreement and (ii) any notices required or permitted to be filed with certain foreign, state and/or federal securities commissions or stock exchanges, which notices will be filed on a timely basis.
3.4 No Conflicts. The execution, delivery and performance of the Transaction Documents by the Company and the consummation by the Company of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby will not (i) result in a violation of the certificate of incorporation or by-laws of the Company or (ii) conflict with, or constitute a default (or an event which with notice or lapse of time or both would become a default) under, or give to others any rights of termination, amendment, acceleration or cancellation of, any material agreement, indenture or instrument to which the Company is a party or by which the Company is bound, or (iii) result in a violation of any law, rule, regulation, order, judgment or decree including federal and state securities laws and regulations applicable to the Company or by which any property or asset of the Company is bound or affected.
3.5 Offering. Assuming the accuracy of the representations and warranties of the Purchasers contained in Section 4 hereof, the issuance of the Notes is and will be exempt from the registration and prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”), and has been registered or qualified (or is exempt from registration and qualification) under the registration, permit, or qualification requirements of all applicable state securities laws.
3.6 Use of Proceeds. The Company shall use the proceeds from the sale and issuance of the Notes for general corporate purposes.
3.7 Delivery of SEC Filings. The Company has provided each Purchaser with copies of the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019, and all other reports filed by the Company pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “1934 Act”), since the filing of the Annual Report on Form 10-K and prior to the date hereof (collectively, the “SEC Filings”); which reports represent all filings required of the Company pursuant to the 1934 Act for such period. During the two (2) years prior to the date hereof, the Company has filed all reports, schedules, forms, statements and other documents required to be filed by it with the SEC pursuant to the reporting requirements of 1934 Act (all of the foregoing filed prior to the date hereof or prior to the date of the Closing, and all exhibits included therein and financial statements, notes and schedules thereto and documents incorporated by reference therein being hereinafter referred to as the “SEC Documents”). As of their respective filing dates, or, if amended or superseded by a subsequent filing, as of the date of the last such amendment or superseding filing, the SEC Documents complied in all material respects with the requirements of the 1934 Act and the rules and regulations of the SEC promulgated thereunder applicable to the SEC Documents, and none of the SEC Documents, at the time they were filed or, if amended or superseded by a subsequent filing, as of the date of the last such amendment or superseding filing, with the SEC, 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. As of their respective filing dates, or, if amended or superseded by a subsequent filing, as of the date of the last such amendment or superseding filing, the financial statements of the Company included in the SEC Documents complied as to form in all material respects with applicable accounting requirements and the published rules and regulations of the SEC with respect thereto. Such financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, consistently applied, during the periods involved (except (i) as may be otherwise indicated in such financial statements or the notes thereto, or (ii) in the case of unaudited interim statements, to the extent they may exclude footnotes or may be condensed or summary statements) and fairly present in all material respects the financial position of the Company as of the dates thereof and the results of its operations and cash flows for the periods then ended (subject, in the case of unaudited statements, to normal year-end audit adjustments).
3.8 Conduct of Business; Regulatory Permits. To the knowledge of the Company, the Company is not in violation of any term of, or in default under, its certificate of incorporation, as amended and as in effect on the date hereof, or any certificate of designation of an outstanding series of stock of the Company or its by-laws, as amended and as in effect on the date hereof. The Company is not in violation of any judgment, decree or order or any statute, ordinance, rule or regulation applicable to the Company, and the Company does not and will not conduct its business in violation of any of the foregoing, except for possible violations which could not, individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a material adverse effect on the Company. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Company is not in violation of any of the rules, regulations or requirements of the Australian Securities Exchange (“ASX”) and, assuming the Notes are issued, has no knowledge of any facts or circumstances that would reasonably lead to a suspension of its securities by the ASX in the foreseeable future other than a possible delisting from the Official List of the ASX in accordance with ASX Listing Rules. Except as set forth in its SEC Filings, the Company possesses all certificates, authorizations and permits issued by the appropriate federal, state or foreign regulatory authorities necessary to conduct its business, and the Company has not received any notice of proceedings relating to the revocation or modification of any such certificate, authorization or permit.
3.9 Absence of Litigation. There is no action, suit, proceeding, inquiry or investigation before or by the SEC, the ASX, any court, public board, government agency, self-regulatory organization or body pending or, to the knowledge of the Company, threatened against or affecting the Company or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates, the Securities or any of the Company’s or its subsidiaries’ officers or directors, whether of a civil or criminal nature or otherwise, which, if adversely determined, would have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business or financial condition.
3.10 Securities Laws. The Company shall timely make all filings and reports relating to the issuance of the Securities required under applicable securities laws, including filing any notice of sale of securities required by applicable law or regulation and complying with any applicable “blue sky” laws of the states of the United States. The Company shall pay all fees and expenses in connection with satisfying its obligations under this Section 3.10. The Company shall not sell, offer for sale or solicit offers to buy or otherwise negotiate in respect of any “security” (as defined in the Act) that could be integrated with the issuance of the Notes in a manner that could require the registration of the Notes under the Act.
3.11 Efforts to Obtain Stockholder Approval. The Company shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain any stockholder approval described in Section 2(c) of the Notes.
|4.||Representations and Warranties of the Purchasers|
Each Purchaser, severally and not jointly, hereby represents and warrants to the Company as follows:
4.1 Purchase for Own Account. Each Purchaser understands that the Securities have not been registered under the Act and such Purchaser is acquiring the Securities for his or its own account and not with a view towards, or for resale in connection with, the public sale or distribution thereof, except pursuant to sales registered or exempted from registration. Each Purchaser represents that its acquisition of any Securities under the Notes will be acquired solely for his or its own account and beneficial interest for investment and not for sale or with a view to distribution of the Securities or any part thereof, has no present intention of selling (in connection with a distribution or otherwise), granting any participation in, or otherwise distributing the same.
4.2 Information and Sophistication. Without lessening or obviating the representations and warranties of the Company set forth in Section 3, each Purchaser hereby: (i) acknowledges that he or it has received all the information it has requested from the Company including, but not limited to, the SEC Filings, (ii) represents that he or it has had an opportunity to ask questions and receive answers from the Company regarding the Company, its business and the terms and conditions of the offering of the Securities and (iii) further represents that he or it has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters that he or it is capable of evaluating the merits and risk of this investment.
4.3 Ability to Bear Economic Risk. Each Purchaser acknowledges that investment in the Securities involves a high degree of risk, and represents that he or it is able, without materially impairing its financial condition, to hold the Securities for an indefinite period of time and to suffer a complete loss of his or its investment.
4.4 Rule 144. Each Purchaser is aware that none of the Securities may be sold pursuant to Rule 144 adopted under the Act unless certain conditions are met, including, among other things, the existence of a public market for the shares, the availability of certain current public information about the Company, the resale following the required holding period under Rule 144 and the number of shares being sold during any three (3) month period not exceeding specified limitations.
4.5 Accredited Investor Status. Each Purchaser is an “accredited investor” as such term is defined in Rule 501 under the Act.
4.6 Regulation S. In issuing and selling the Securities, the Company may be relying upon the “safe harbor” provided by Regulation S and/or on Section 4(2) under the Act; it is a condition to the availability of the Regulation S “safe harbor” that the Securities not be offered or sold in the United States or to a U.S. person until the expiration of a one-year “distribution compliance period” (or a six-month “distribution compliance period,” if the issuer is a “reporting issuer,” as defined in Regulation S) following the closing; and notwithstanding the foregoing, prior to the expiration of the one-year “distribution compliance period” (or six-month “distribution compliance period,” if the issuer is a “reporting issuer,” as defined in Regulation S) after the closing (the “Restricted Period”), the Notes may, subject to any restrictions contained in the Notes be offered and sold by the holder thereof only if such offer and sale is made in compliance with the terms of this Agreement and the Notes, and either: (A) if the offer or sale is within the United States or to or for the account of a U.S. person (as such terms are defined in Regulation S), the securities are offered and sold pursuant to an effective registration statement or pursuant to Rule 144 under the Act or pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Act; or (B) the offer and sale is outside the United States and to other than a U.S. person. If a Purchaser is not a United States person, such Purchaser hereby represents that he or it is satisfied as to the full observance of the laws of the jurisdiction applicable to such Purchaser in connection with any invitation to subscribe for the Securities, including (i) the legal requirements within such Purchaser’s jurisdiction for the purchase of the Securities, (ii) any foreign exchange restrictions applicable to such purchase, (iii) any governmental or other consents that may need to be obtained and (iv) the income tax and other tax consequences, if any, that may be relevant to the purchase, holding, redemption, sale or transfer of such Securities. Each Purchaser’s subscription and payment for, and his or its continued beneficial ownership of the Securities, will not violate any applicable securities or other laws of such Purchaser’s jurisdiction that are applicable to such Purchaser.
4.7 Rule 506(d). If a Purchaser beneficially owns twenty percent (20%) or more of the outstanding voting securities of the Company, calculated in accordance with Rule 506(d) of Regulation D of the Act, or may designate a director of the Company, such Purchaser hereby represents and warrants to the Company that he or it has not been convicted of any of the felonies or misdemeanors or been subject to any of the orders, judgments, decrees or other conditions set forth in Rule 506(d) of Regulation D of the Act.
4.8 Further Limitations on Disposition. Without in any way limiting the representations set forth above and subject to any restrictions contained in the Notes, each Purchaser further agrees not to make any disposition of all or any portion of the Securities unless and until:
(a) There is then in effect a Registration Statement under the Act covering such proposed disposition and such disposition is made in accordance with such Registration Statement; or
(b) Such Purchaser shall have notified the Company of the proposed disposition and shall have furnished the Company with a detailed statement of the circumstances surrounding the proposed disposition, and if reasonably requested by the Company, such Purchaser shall have furnished the Company with an opinion of counsel, reasonably satisfactory to the Company, that such disposition will not require registration under the Act or any applicable state securities laws.
(c) Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraphs (a) and (b) above, but subject to the terms of the Notes, no such registration statement or opinion of counsel shall be necessary for a transfer by a Purchaser to (i) any shareholder, partner, retired partner, member or former member of such Purchaser for no additional consideration or (ii) any affiliate, including affiliated funds, for no additional consideration, in each case if all transferees agree in writing to be subject to the terms hereof to the same extent as if they were such Purchaser hereunder.
(d) Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraphs (a) and (b) above, the Company acknowledges and agrees that the Securities may be pledged by each Purchaser, and his or its successors and assigns, in connection with a bona fide margin agreement or other loan or financing arrangement that is secured by the Securities, provided that any pledge of those Securities does not constitute an offer of those Securities for sale within 12 months after their issue such that it would require disclosure under section 707(3) of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth). The pledge of Securities shall not be deemed to be a transfer, sale or assignment of the Securities hereunder, and no Person effecting a pledge of Securities shall be required to provide the Company with any notice thereof or otherwise make any delivery to the Company pursuant to this Agreement or any other Transaction Document. The Company hereby agrees to execute and deliver such documentation as a pledgee of the Securities may reasonably request, at each Purchaser’s expense, in connection with a pledge of the Securities to such pledgee by such Purchaser and any successor or assignee.
4.9 Legends. Each Purchaser understands that any securities issued upon conversion of the Notes may bear one or all of the following legends:
(a) “THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE U.S. SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “SECURITIES ACT”), AND HAVE BEEN ACQUIRED FOR INVESTMENT AND NOT WITH A VIEW TO, OR IN CONNECTION WITH, THE SALE OR DISTRIBUTION THEREOF. NO SALE OR DISTRIBUTION OF SUCH SHARES MAY BE EFFECTED WITHOUT AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT RELATED THERETO OR AN OPINION OF COUNSEL IN A FORM SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY OR OTHER EVIDENCE REASONABLY SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY THAT SUCH REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT.”
(b) Any legend set forth in or required by another section of this Agreement or the Notes.
(c) Any legend required by the securities laws of any state or country to the extent such laws are applicable to the securities represented by the certificate so legended.
4.10 Market Standoff. Each Purchaser agrees not to sell any of his or its Securities during a period specified by the representative of the underwriters of Capital Stock (not to exceed one hundred eighty (180) days) following the effective date of the initial registration statement of the Company filed under the Act, so long as all officers, directors, and 1% stockholders have executed similar agreements and are similarly restricted from selling the Company’s stock.
4.11 Foreign Ownership Restrictions. Each Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that in order to ensure that US persons do not purchase any CDIs that may be issued to them, a number of procedures governing the trading and clearing of CDIs, while the Company is listed on the ASX, will be implemented, including the application to any CDIs issued to them of the status of Foreign Ownership Restrictions securities under the ASX Settlement Operating Rules and the addition of the notation “FORUS” to the CDI description on ASX trading screens and elsewhere, which will inform the market of the prohibition of US persons acquiring CDIs.
4.12 D&O Tail Policy. Each Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that, on or after the Closing Date, the Company shall purchase a “tail” policy under the Company’s existing directors’ and officers’ liability insurance policy, which (a) has a claims period of six (6) years from its effective date of coverage (the “Claims Period”), (b) provides a level of coverage comparable to the coverage under the Company’s existing directors’ and officers’ liability insurance policy and (c) remains in full force and effect for the duration of the Claims Period.
4.13 Employee Severance Escrow. Each Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that, within 10 days of the Closing Date, the Company shall enter into an escrow agreement with an escrow agent and the Company’s employees and officers, under which the Company will irrevocably transfer to the escrow agent funds in an amount equal to, and for the purposes of securing, the aggregate amount of severance bonuses/benefits payable by the Company to its employees and officers. Such escrow agreement shall provide, among other things, that in the event an employee or officer earns a severance bonus/benefit pursuant to the severance or employment agreement existing at the time such severance bonus/benefit is earned, the escrow agent shall release to such employee or officer, from the escrow account, an amount equal to such employee’s or officer’s severance bonus/benefit.
4.14 Mutual Releases. The parties hereby agree to use commercially reasonable efforts to enter into mutual releases of claims between each Purchaser, on the one hand, and each current member of the Company’s board of directors (each, a “Director”) and each current executive officer of the Company (each, an “Officer”), on the other hand, effective as of and upon the date a Director or an Officer ceases to serve on the Company’s board of directors or as an executive officer of the Company, as applicable, such release on market terms for matters of this nature and otherwise in a form of document as may be agreed to by such Purchaser and each such Director or Officer, acting reasonably.
