Representations, Warranties and Covenants of the Company
The Company hereby represents and warrants to the Purchaser, as of the date hereof and as of the Closing Date, as follows:
3.1Organization; 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.
3.2Corporate Power. The Company has all requisite corporate power to execute and deliver this Agreement, the Note and subject to the abovementioned stockholder approval, the Warrant in favor of the Purchaser 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 “Loan Documents”) and to carry out and perform its obligations under the terms of the Loan Documents and to, subject to the abovementioned stockholder approval, issue CDIs in accordance with the terms thereof.
(a)Authorization. The execution and delivery of each of the Loan Documents by the Company and the consummation by the Company of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby, including, without limitation, the issuance of the Note, the issuance of the Warrant, the reservation of the Common Stock underlying the CDIs issuable upon conversion of the Note (the “Conversion CDIs”), the reservation of the Common Stock underlying the CDIs issuable upon exercise of the Warrant (the “Warrant CDIs” and, together with the Note, the Warrant, the Conversion CDIs and the Common Stock, “Securities”) and the issuance of the Conversion CDIs and the Warrant CDIs, 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 Section 2(c) of the Note and in this Agreement, no further consent or authorization is required by the Company, its board of directors or its stockholders. Each of the Loan Documents has been (or in the case of the Warrant, will be) 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 Note into Conversion CDIs in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement and the Note, the Conversion CDIs will be validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable and free of any liens or encumbrances (other than as set out in Section 2(f) of the Note). Upon the exercise of the Warrant in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement and the Warrant, the Warrant CDIs will be validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable and free of any liens or encumbrances (other than as set out in Section 5(b) of the Warrant). The issuance of the Note (and the Conversion CDIs) and the Warrant (and the
Warrant CDIs) 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 Note (and the Conversion CDIs) and the Warrant (and the Warrant CDIs) 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 Note and the Warrant (and the underlying securities) may be subject to restrictions on transfer as set out in the Loan 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 and sale of the Note (and the Conversion CDIs) and the Warrant (and the Warrant CDIs) do not and will not cause any dilution adjustment in any existing securities of the Company, and the Purchaser hereby waives any dilution adjustment that might otherwise result from the issuance and sale of the Note (and the Conversion CDIs) or the Warrant (and the Warrant CDIs) pursuant to the terms of any existing security held by the Purchaser.
3.3Governmental 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 Loan Documents, the offer, sale or issuance of the Note, the Conversion CDIs, the Warrant and the Warrant CDIs, 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 by Section 2(c) of the Note and 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.
3.4No Conflicts. The execution, delivery and performance of the Loan Documents by the Company and the consummation by the Company of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby (including, without limitation, the issuance of the Note and the Warrant and the reservation for issuance and issuance of the Conversion CDIs and the Warrant CDIs) 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. For the avoidance of doubt, the Purchaser agrees that the execution, delivery and performance of the Loan Documents by the Company and the consummation by the Company of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby shall not conflict with or constitute a default under (x) the Note Purchase Agreement, dated as of June 15, 2017, between the Company and the Purchaser, including, without limitation, the restriction on additional indebtedness set forth in Section 3.14 thereof, or (y) the Note and Warrant Purchase Agreement, dated May 30, 2018, between the Company and the Purchaser.
3.5Offering. Assuming the accuracy of the representations and warranties of the Purchaser contained in Section 4 hereof, the offer, issue, and sale of the Note and the Warrant 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.
3.6Use of Proceeds. The Company shall use the proceeds of the sale and issuance of the Note for general corporate purposes.
3.7Delivery of SEC Filings. The Company has provided the Purchaser with copies of the Company's most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, 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).
3.8Conduct 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 Bylaws, 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 ASX (defined below) and, assuming the Note and Warrant are issued, has no knowledge of any facts or circumstances that would reasonably lead to delisting or suspension of its securities by the ASX in the foreseeable future. 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.
3.9Absence 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.
3.10Securities 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 Note or the Warrant in a manner that could require the registration of the Note or the Warrant under the Act.
3.11Efforts to Obtain Stockholder Approval. The Company shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain any stockholder approval described in Section 2(c) of the Note in respect of the Note and the same form of approval in respect of the Warrant. The Company covenants that its proposal to stockholders in respect of approval of the Warrant issuance will be interconditional with its proposal to stockholders in respect of approval of issuance of CDIs upon conversion of the Note, such that if either proposal is not approved, then neither proposal may be approved.
Representations and Warranties of the Purchaser
The Purchaser hereby represents and warrants to the Company as follows:
4.1Purchase for Own Account. The Purchaser understands that the Securities have not been registered under the Act and the Purchaser is acquiring the Securities for 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. The Purchaser represents that, if it is permitted to acquire any Securities under the Note or the Warrant, it is acquiring the Securities solely for 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.
4.2Information and Sophistication.

4.3Ability to Bear Economic Risk. The Purchaser acknowledges that investment in the Securities involves a high degree of risk, and represents that 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 its investment.
4.4Rule 144. The 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 month period not exceeding specified limitations.
4.5Accredited Investor Status. The Purchaser is an “accredited investor” as such term is defined in Rule 501 under the Act.
4.6Regulation 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 Note, the Warrant and the underlying securities may, subject to any restrictions contained in the Note or the Warrant, as applicable, 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 Note or the Warrant, as applicable, 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 the Purchaser is not a United States person, the Purchaser hereby represents that the Purchaser is satisfied as to the full observance of the laws of the Purchaser’s jurisdiction applicable to the Purchaser in connection with any invitation to subscribe for the Securities, including (i) the legal requirements within the 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. The Purchaser’s subscription and payment for, and the Purchaser’s continued beneficial ownership of the Securities, will not violate any applicable securities or other laws of the Purchaser’s jurisdiction that are applicable to the Purchaser.
4.7Rule 506(d). If the 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, the Purchaser hereby represents and warrants to the Company that the Purchaser 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.
4.8Further Limitations on Disposition. Without in any way limiting the representations set forth above and subject to any restrictions contained in the Note and the Warrant, as applicable, the 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)The 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, the 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 Note and the Warrant, as applicable, no such registration statement or opinion of counsel shall be necessary for a transfer by the Purchaser to (i) any shareholder, partner, retired partner, member or former member of the 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 the Purchaser hereunder.
(d)Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraphs (a) and (b) above, the Company acknowledges and agrees that the Securities may be pledged by the Purchaser, and 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 Loan Document. The Company hereby agrees to execute and deliver such documentation as a pledgee of the Securities may reasonably request, at the Purchaser’s expense, in connection with a pledge of the Securities to such pledgee by the Purchaser and any successor or assignee.
4.9Legends. The Purchaser understands that any securities issued upon conversion of the Note or exercise of the Warrant, 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.

(b)Any legend set forth in or required by another section of this Agreement, the Note or the Warrant, as applicable.
(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.

The Purchaser agrees not to sell any of the Securities during a period specified by the representative of the underwriters of Common 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.
4.11Foreign Ownership Restrictions. The Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that in order to ensure that US persons do not purchase any CDIs that may be issued to it, 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 it 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.

(a)Number of CDIs. With effect from the Issue Date, this Warrant automatically shall become exercisable for 78,984,823 CDIs (representing 1,579,696 shares of Common Stock). All CDIs for which this Warrant becomes exercisable from time to time pursuant to this Paragraph 1(a), and as may be adjusted from time to time in accordance with the provisions of this Warrant, are referred to herein cumulatively and collectively as the “Warrant CDIs.”
(b)Exercise Price. With respect to each Warrant CDI for which this Warrant becomes exercisable pursuant to Paragraph 1(a) above, the purchase price therefor (the “Exercise Price”) shall be US$0.0127.
(a)Method of Exercise. This Warrant may be exercised by the Holder at any time during the term (as set forth in Section 8) and in compliance with the provisions of this Warrant for all or any part of the Warrant CDIs, by the surrender of this Warrant together with the duly executed notice of exercise form attached hereto as Exhibit A (the “Notice of Exercise”) at the principal office address of the Company. If this Warrant shall have been exercised in part, the Company shall, at the time of delivery of the Holding Statement or the book entry notice pursuant to Section 2(e), deliver to the Holder a new Warrant evidencing the rights of the Holder to purchase the then unpurchased Warrant CDIs, which new Warrant shall in all other respects be identical to this Warrant, or at the request of the Holder, appropriate notation may be made on this Warrant and the same returned to the Holder.
(b)Cash Exercise. Upon exercise of this Warrant, the Holder shall pay the Company an amount (“Exercise Payment”) equal to the product of the Exercise Price multiplied by the total number of Warrant CDIs purchased pursuant to such exercise of this Warrant, by wire transfer of immediately available funds or check payable to the order of the Company. In the manner set out in Paragraph (e) below, the Holder shall be deemed to have become the holder of record of, and shall be treated for all purposes as the record holder of, the Warrant CDIs represented by such exercise (and such Warrant CDIs shall be deemed to have been issued) immediately prior to the close of business on the date upon which the Exercise Payment is paid to the Company.
(c)Net Exercise. The Exercise Payment also may be paid at the Holder’s election by surrender of all or a portion of the Warrant for the Warrant CDIs to be exercised under this Warrant (“Net Exercise”). If the Holder elects the Net Exercise method, the Company will issue Warrant CDIs in accordance with the following formula:
X = Y(A-B) A
the number of Warrant CDIs to be issued upon the Net Exercise of the Warrant
the number of Warrant CDIs to be surrendered
the fair market value of one (1) CDI on the date of exercise of this Warrant
the Exercise Price
For purposes of the above calculation, fair market value of CDIs shall mean the following (“Fair Market Value”):
(i)if CDIs are then quoted on the Australian Securities Exchange (“ASX”), then the Fair Market Value per share of one (1) CDI shall be equal to the volume
weighted average closing price of the Company’s CDIs on the ASX for the five (5) trading days ending immediately prior to the business day on which the Company receives the Holder’s written Notice of Exercise (regardless if received during the trading hours or after);
(ii)if CDIs are not then quoted on the ASX, then if the Company’s Common Stock is traded on another national securities exchange, the Fair Market Value of the CDIs shall be equal to the result obtained by dividing (A) the volume weighted average closing price of the Company’s Common Stock on such securities exchange for the five (5) trading days ending immediately prior to the business day on which the Company receives the Holder’s written Notice of Exercise (regardless if received during the trading hours or after), by (B) the number of CDIs (or fraction thereof) which equal an interest in exactly one share of Common Stock on such dates;
(iii)if CDIs are not then quoted on the ASX and the Common Stock is not then traded on another securities exchange, then if the Common Stock is traded over-the-counter, the Fair Market Value of the CDIs shall be equal to the result obtained by dividing (A) the volume weighted average closing price of the Company’s Common Stock quoted on the principal market on which or through which the Common Stock is traded over the five (5) consecutive trading days ending immediately prior to the business day on which the Company receives the Holder’s written Notice of Exercise (regardless if received during the trading hours or after), by (B) the number of CDIs (or fraction thereof) which equal an interest in exactly one share of Common Stock on such dates; or
(iv)if CDIs are not then quoted on the ASX and the Common Stock is not then listed on any securities exchange or traded in the over-the-counter market, the Fair Market Value of the CDIs shall be as determined by its Board of Directors in its reasonable good faith judgment (which determination shall take into consideration any available appraisals).
If any of the amounts used to calculate the Fair Market Value are expressed in Australian dollars and not the United States dollar, then each such amount shall be converted into United States dollars based on the closing exchange rate published by the Reserve Bank of Australia in their Official Bulletin at 4 pm for the applicable date. The amounts used to calculate the Fair Market Value shall be equitably adjusted for the occurrence of any of the events for which an adjustment would be made pursuant to Section 4 but which is not otherwise fully reflected in the Fair Market Value calculation.
(d)Election to receive Common Stock. The Holder may include in their Notice of Exercise, the election to receive the corresponding number of shares of Common Stock for the Warrant CDIs to be purchased.
(e)Exercise Process including Holding Statement. In the event of the valid exercise of this Warrant, the Company must, if the CDIs are quoted on the ASX, do the following:
(i)allot and issue to CHESS Depositary Nominees Pty Ltd (“CDN”)the number of shares of Common Stock underlying the CDIs the subject of the Notice of
Exercise and procure CDN to allot and issue to the Holder the number of CDIs representing the Common Stock issued to CDN under this provision;
(ii)enter CDN into the Company’s register of members as the holder of the relevant number of shares of Common Stock and procure CDN to enter the Holder into the register of CDI holders as the holder of the relevant number of CDIs;
(iii)deliver to the Holder a holding statement showing the Holder as the holder of the relevant number of CDIs;
(iv)apply for, and use its reasonable efforts to obtain, official quotation of the relevant number of CDIs (and underlying shares of Common Stock) on ASX as soon as practicable; and
(v)deliver in accordance with Section 6 to the Holder a check payable to the Holder for any cash amounts payable as a result of any fractional shares.
If, at the time of exercise, CDIs are no longer quoted on ASX, then on exercise of the Warrant the Company must issue directly to the Holder the number of shares of Common Stock over which the Warrant is exercised and must procure that those shares be listed for trading on any securities exchange on which the Company’s Common Stock is tradeable and in accordance with Section 6 deliver to the Holder a check payable to Holder for any cash amounts payable as a result of any fractional shares.
Stock Fully Paid; Reservation of Shares. All of the Warrant CDIs or Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of this Warrant, upon issuance and receipt by the Company of the Exercise Price therefor (or upon Net Exercise thereof, as provided in Section 2(c)), shall be fully paid and nonassessable, and free from all preemptive rights, rights of first refusal or first offer, taxes, liens and charges with respect to the issuance thereof except as noted in Section 5. During the period within which the rights represented by this Warrant may be exercised, the Company shall at all times have authorized and reserved for issuance a sufficient number of shares of its Common Stock to provide for the exercise of this Warrant.
Adjustment of Exercise Price and Number of Shares. The number and kind of Warrant CDIs to be issued upon the exercise of this Warrant and the Exercise Price payable therefor shall be subject to adjustment from time to time upon the occurrence of certain events, as follows:
(a)Reclassification, Consolidation or Reorganization. Subject to Section 10, in case of any reclassification of the CDIs (other than as a result of a subdivision or combination), or in case of any consolidation or merger of the Company with or into another corporation or sale of all or substantially all of the Company’s assets (any of which is a “Reorganization Transaction”), the Company, or such successor corporation as the case may be, shall execute a new warrant, providing that the Holder shall have the right to exercise such new warrant, and procure upon such exercise and payment of the same aggregate Exercise Price, in lieu of the Warrant CDIs then issuable upon exercise of this Warrant, the kind and amount of shares of stock, other securities, money and property as would be received by the Holder for such
Warrant CDIs as if such Warrant CDIs were outstanding immediately prior to the consummation of the Reorganization Transaction.
(b)Stock Splits, Dividends and Combinations. Subject to Section 10, in the event that the Company shall at any time subdivide the outstanding shares of Common Stock, or shall issue a stock dividend on its outstanding shares of Common Stock, the number of Warrant CDIs issuable upon exercise of this Warrant immediately prior to such subdivision or to the issuance of such stock dividend shall be proportionately increased and the Exercise Price shall be proportionately decreased, and in the event that the Company shall at any time combine the outstanding shares of Common Stock, the number of Warrant CDIs issuable upon exercise of this Warrant immediately prior to such combination shall be proportionately decreased and the Exercise Price shall be proportionately increased, effective at the close of business on the date of such subdivision, stock dividend or combination, as the case may be such that in each case, the result obtained by multiplying the Exercise Price by the number of Warrant CDIs shall be the same immediately prior to, and immediately after, such event.
(c)Notice of Corporate Action. If the Company (i) declares a dividend (other than a cash dividend payable out of earnings or earned surplus legally available for the payment of dividends under the laws of the jurisdiction of incorporation of the Company) or other distribution, or any right to subscribe for or purchase any evidences of its indebtedness, any shares of stock of any class or any other securities or property, or to receive any other right; (ii)authorizes and publicly approves, or enters into any agreement contemplating or solicits stockholder approval for any Reorganization Transaction; or (iii) publicly authorizes the voluntary dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the affairs of the Company, then the Company shall deliver to the Holder a notice describing the material terms and conditions of such transaction, at least ten (10) business days prior to the applicable record or effective date on which a person would need to hold Common Stock or CDIs in order to participate in or vote with respect to such transaction, and the Company will take all steps reasonably necessary in order to insure that the Holder is given the practical opportunity to exercise this Warrant prior to such time so as to participate in or vote with respect to such transaction. Each such written notice shall be sufficiently given if addressed to the Holder at the last address of the Holder appearing on the books of the Company and delivered in accordance with Section 11(d); provided, however, that the failure to deliver such notice or any defect therein shall not affect the validity of the corporate action required to be described in such notice.
(d)Subsequent Equity Sales. Notwithstanding any provision of this Warrant to the contrary, in the event that the Company issues any CDIs or Common Stock or any security that is exchangeable or convertible into CDIs or Common Stock (“Additional Securities”) after the date hereof at a price per CDI (or the equivalent for shares of Common Stock) that is less than the Exercise Price (or the equivalent for shares of Common Stock) in an equity financing, then the Exercise Price shall be reduced to the lowest price per CDI (or the equivalent for shares of Common Stock) at which any Additional Security was issued or sold or deemed to be issued or sold. The Company agrees that it will provide a notice to the Holder describing the material terms and conditions of any issuance of Additional Securities promptly after the issuance thereof. For the avoidance of doubt, the price per CDI (or the equivalent for shares of Common Stock) at which any Additional Securities are issued by the
Company to the Holder after the date hereof, including, without limitation, upon conversion into CDIs or Common Stock of (i) the Senior Secured Convertible Promissory Note, dated June 15, 2017, and amended as of December 31, 2018 and on or about the date of the Purchase Agreement, or (ii) the Senior Unsecured Promissory Note dated May 30, 2018, each issued to the Holder by the Company, will have no effect on the Exercise Price.
Holder Representations and Warranties; Transfer and Assignment.
(a)The representations and warranties and rights and obligations of transfer and assignment of Holder that are set forth in Section 4 of the Purchase Agreement with respect to the shares of Common Stock or Warrant CDIs issuable to Holder are hereby made a part of this Warrant and incorporated herein by this reference
(b)Notwithstanding any other provision of this Warrant or the Purchase Agreement, the Holder may not sell or transfer any shares of Common Stock or CDIs issued to the Holder pursuant to this Warrant (“Restricted Securities”), or grant, issue or transfer interests in, or options over, any Restricted Securities, at any time within 12 months after the issue of those Restricted Securities (“Restricted Period”) except as permitted by section 708 or any other applicable section of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth). Before commencement of the Restricted Period, to prevent any such restricted dealings in the Restricted Securities during the Restricted Period, the Holder agrees to (i) the application of a holding lock to the Restricted Securities by the Company’s securities registry for the Restricted Period, and (ii) enter into any other documents reasonably necessary to prevent any such restricted dealings in the Restricted Securities during the Restricted Period.
(c)The Holder may not sell or transfer this Warrant, or grant, issue or transfer interests in, or options over, this Warrant at any time within 12 months after the Issue Date except as permitted by section 708 or any other applicable section of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth).
Fractional Shares. No fractional shares of the Company’s capital stock will be issued in connection with any exercise of this Warrant, but in lieu of such fractional shares the Company shall make a cash payment therefor upon the basis of the Exercise Price then in effect.
Rights of Stockholders. The Holder shall not be entitled to vote or receive dividends or subscription rights or be deemed the holder of the CDIs, Common Stock or any other securities of the Company which may at any time be issuable on the exercise of this Warrant for any purpose, nor shall anything contained herein be construed to confer upon the Holder any of the rights of a stockholder of the Company or any right to vote for the election of directors or upon any matter submitted to stockholders at any meeting thereof, or to give or withhold consent to any corporate action (whether upon any recapitalization, issuance of stock, reclassification of stock, change of par value, consolidation, merger, conveyance, or otherwise) with respect to the Warrant CDIs until this Warrant shall have been exercised and the Warrant CDIs purchasable upon the exercise of this Warrant shall have become deliverable, as provided in Section 2(a).
Term of Warrant. This Warrant shall become exercisable on the Issue Date and shall terminate and no longer be exercisable from and after 5:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on the date that is the fifth (5th) anniversary of the Issue Date.

Holder may change such address by giving written notice of such changed address to the Company.
ASX Listing Rules. Until such time as the Company is removed from the Official List of the ASX, the following additional provisions will apply to the Warrant notwithstanding any other provision of this Warrant:
(a)Voting Rights. The Warrant does not carry any voting rights at stockholder meetings of the Company unless and until the Warrant is exercised.

(c)Reorganisations.

(d)Bonus Issues. If there is a bonus issue to the holders of CDIs, the number of CDIs representing shares of Common Stock over which the Warrant is exercisable will be increased by the number of CDIs which the Holder would have received if it had exercised the Warrant before the record date for the bonus issue.
(e)Pro Rata Issue. If the Company proceeds with a pro rata issue (except a bonus issue) of securities to stockholders after the date of issue of the Warrant, the Exercise Price of the Warrant will be reduced in accordance with the formula set out in ASX Listing Rule 6.22.2.
(f)Not Quoted. The Warrant will not be quoted on ASX or on any other securities exchange.
(g)Equal Ranking. The Common Stock and CDIs issued pursuant to an exercise of the Warrant will rank, from the date of issue, equally with the existing shares of Common Stock and CDIs of the Company in all respects.
