5.1 Adjustment for Stock Splits and Stock Dividends. The Warrant Price and the number of shares of Warrant Stock for which this Warrant remains exercisable shall each be proportionally adjusted to reflect any stock dividend, stock split, reverse stock split or other similar event affecting the number of outstanding shares of Warrant Stock.
5.2 Adjustment for Other Dividends and Distributions. In case the Company shall make or issue, or shall fix a record date for the determination of eligible holders entitled to receive a dividend or other distribution payable with respect to the Warrant Stock that is payable in (a) securities of the Company (other than issuances with respect to which adjustment is made under Section 5.1 or Section 5.3 hereof) or (b) assets (other than cash) which dividend or distribution is actually made (each a Dividend Event), then, and in each such case, Holder, upon exercise of this Warrant at any time after such Dividend Event, shall receive, in addition to the shares of Warrant Stock, the securities or such other assets of the Company that would have been payable to Holder if Holder had completed such exercise of this Warrant, immediately prior to such Dividend Event.
5.3 Adjustment for Reorganization, Consolidation, Merger. (a) In case of any recapitalization or reorganization of the Company or (b) in case the Company shall consolidate with or merge into one or more other corporations or entities which results in a change of the Warrant Stock, in each case other than a Change of Control (each, a Reorganization Event), then, and in each such case, Holder, upon the exercise of this Warrant after such Reorganization Event, shall be entitled to receive, in lieu of the stock or other securities and property that Holder would have been entitled to receive upon such exercise prior to such Reorganization Event, the stock or other securities or property which Holder would have been entitled to receive upon such Reorganization Event if, immediately prior to such Reorganization Event, Holder had completed such exercise of this Warrant, all subject to further adjustment as provided in this Warrant. If after such Reorganization Event, this Warrant is exercisable for securities of a corporation or entity other than the Company, then such corporation or entity shall duly execute and deliver to Holder a supplement hereto acknowledging such corporations or other entitys obligations under this Warrant; and in each such case, the terms of this Warrant shall be applicable to the shares of stock or other securities or property receivable upon the exercise of this Warrant after the consummation of such Reorganization Event.
5.4 Conversion of Stock. In case all (a) the authorized Warrant Stock is converted, pursuant to the Restated Certificate, into other securities or property of the Company, or (b) the Warrant Stock otherwise ceases to exist or to be authorized by the Restated Certificate (each, a Stock Event), then Holder, upon exercise of this Warrant at any time after such Stock Event, shall receive, in lieu of the number of shares of Warrant Stock that would have been issuable upon exercise of this Warrant immediately prior to such Stock Event, the stock and other securities and property that Holder would have been entitled to receive upon the Stock Event, if, immediately prior to such Stock Event, Holder had completed such exercise of this Warrant.
5.5 Notice of Adjustments. The Company shall promptly give written notice of each adjustment under this Section 5 of the Warrant Price or the number of shares of Warrant Stock or other securities that remain issuable upon exercise of this Warrant. The notice shall describe the adjustment and show in reasonable detail the facts on which the adjustment or readjustment is based.
5.6 No Change Necessary. The form of this Warrant need not be changed because of any adjustment in the Warrant Price or in the number of shares of Warrant Stock issuable upon its exercise.
5.7 Reservation of Stock. If the number of shares of Warrant Stock or other securities issuable upon exercise of this Warrant that are authorized and unissued under the Restated Certificate shall not be sufficient to effect the exercise of this Warrant in full, the Company will promptly take such corporate action as may, in the opinion of its counsel, be necessary to increase its authorized but unissued shares of Warrant Stock or other securities issuable upon exercise of this Warrant as shall be sufficient for such purpose.
6. REPRESENTATIONS; WARRANTIES AND CERTAIN AGREEMENTS OF HOLDER. Holder hereby represents and warrants to, and agrees with, the Company, that:
6.1 Purchase for Own Account. The Securities will be acquired for investment for Holders own account, not as a nominee or agent, and not with a view to the public resale or distribution thereof within the meaning of the Act, and Holder has no present intention of selling, granting any participation in, or otherwise distributing the same.
6.2 Disclosure of Information. Holder has received or has had full access to all the information it considers necessary or appropriate to make an informed investment decision with respect to the Securities. Holder further has had an opportunity to ask questions and receive answers from the Company regarding the terms and conditions of the offering of the Securities and to obtain additional information (to the extent the Company possessed such information or could acquire it without unreasonable effort or expense) necessary to verify any information furnished to Holder or to which Holder had access.
6.3 Investment Experience. Holder understands that the purchase of the Securities involves substantial risk. Holder (a) has experience as an investor in securities of companies in the development stage and acknowledges that Holder is able to fend for itself, can bear the economic risk of Holders investment in the Securities and has such knowledge and experience in financial or business matters that Holder is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of this investment in the Securities and protecting its own interests in connection with this investment and/or (b) has a preexisting personal or business relationship with the Company and certain of its officers, directors or controlling Persons of a nature and duration that enables such Holder to be aware of the character, business acumen and financial circumstances of such Persons.
6.4 Accredited Investor Status. Holder is familiar with the definition of, and qualifies as, an accredited investor within the meaning of Regulation D promulgated under the Act.
6.5 Restricted Securities. Holder understands that the Securities are characterized as restricted securities under the Act and Rule 144 promulgated thereunder inasmuch as they are being acquired from the Company in a transaction not involving a public offering, and that under the Act and applicable regulations thereunder such securities may be resold without registration under the Act only in certain limited circumstances. In this connection, Holder is familiar with Rule 144, as presently in effect, and understands the resale limitations imposed thereby and by the Act. Holder understands that the Company is under no obligation to register any of the securities sold hereunder. Holder understands that no public market now exists for any of the Securities and that it is uncertain whether a public market will ever exist for the Securities.
6.6 No Solicitation. At no time was Holder presented with or solicited by any publicly issued or circulated newspaper, mail, radio, television or other form of general advertising or solicitation in connection with the offer, sale and purchase of the Securities.
6.7 Further Limitations on Disposition. Without in any way limiting the representations and warranties of Holder set forth above, Holder 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) Holder shall have notified the Company of the proposed disposition, and shall have furnished the Company with a statement of the circumstances surrounding the proposed disposition, and, upon request of the Company, with an opinion of counsel, at the expense of Holder or its transferee, reasonably satisfactory to the Company, that such disposition will not require registration of such securities under the Act.
6.8 Legends. Holder understands and agrees that the certificates evidencing the Securities will bear legends substantially similar to those set forth below in addition to any other legend that may be required by applicable law, by the Restated Certificate or the Companys Bylaws, or by any agreement between the Company and Holder:
(a) THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED HEREBY HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE ACT), OR UNDER THE SECURITIES LAWS OF APPLICABLE STATES. THESE SECURITIES ARE SUBJECT TO RESTRICTIONS ON TRANSFERABILITY AND RESALE AND MAY NOT BE TRANSFERRED OR RESOLD EXCEPT AS PERMITTED UNDER THE ACT AND THE APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS, PURSUANT TO REGISTRATION OR EXEMPTION THEREFROM. HOLDER SHOULD BE AWARE THAT THEY MAY BE REQUIRED TO BEAR THE FINANCIAL RISKS OF THIS INVESTMENT FOR AN INDEFINITE PERIOD OF TIME. THE ISSUER OF THESE SECURITIES MAY REQUIRE AN OPINION OF COUNSEL IN FORM AND SUBSTANCE SATISFACTORY TO THE ISSUER TO THE EFFECT THAT ANY PROPOSED TRANSFER OR RESALE IS IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE ACT.
(b) THE SHARES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE ARE SUBJECT TO A 180 DAY MARKET STAND-OFF RESTRICTION AS SET FORTH IN A CERTAIN AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE ISSUER AND THE ORIGINAL HOLDER OF THESE SHARES, A COPY OF WHICH MAY BE OBTAINED AT THE PRINCIPAL OFFICE OF THE ISSUER. AS A RESULT OF SUCH AGREEMENT, THESE SHARES MAY NOT BE TRADED PRIOR TO 180 DAYS AFTER THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF THE PUBLIC OFFERING OF THE COMMON STOCK OF THE ISSUER HEREOF. SUCH RESTRICTION IS BINDING ON TRANSFEREES OF THESE SHARES.
(c) Any legend required by the laws of the State of California, including any legend required by the California Department of Corporations and Sections 417 and 418 of the California Corporations Code or any other state securities laws.
The legend set forth in (a) above shall be removed by the Company from any certificate evidencing the Securities upon delivery to the Company of an opinion of counsel, reasonably satisfactory to the Company, that a registration statement under the Act is at that time in effect with respect to the legended security or that such security can be freely transferred in a public sale (other than pursuant to Rule 144 or Rule 145 under the Act) without such a registration statement being in effect and that such transfer will not jeopardize the exemption or exemptions from registration pursuant to which the Company issued the Securities. No opinion shall be required for routine transactions under Rule 144.
6.9 Market Stand-Off Agreement. Holder hereby agrees that it shall not, to the extent requested by the Company or an underwriter of securities of the Company, sell or otherwise transfer or dispose of any Securities or other shares of stock of the Company then owned by Holder (other than to donees or partners of Holder who agree to be similarly bound) for up to one hundred eighty (180) days following the effective date of a registration statement of the Company filed under the Act. For purposes of this Section 6.9, the term Company shall include any wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company into which the Company merges or consolidates. In order to enforce the foregoing covenant, the Company shall have the right to impose stop transfer instructions with respect to the Securities and such other Company securities of Holder (and the shares or securities of every other Person subject to the foregoing restriction) until the end of such period. Holder further agrees to enter into any agreement reasonably required by the underwriters to implement the foregoing within any reasonable timeframe so requested.
7. NO RIGHTS OR LIABILITIES AS STOCKHOLDER. This Warrant does not by itself entitle Holder to any voting rights or other rights as a stockholder of the Company. In the absence of affirmative action by Holder to purchase Warrant Stock by exercise of this Warrant, no provisions of this Warrant, and no enumeration herein of the rights or privileges of Holder, shall cause Holder to be a stockholder of the Company for any purpose.
8. GENERAL PROVISIONS.
8.1 Attorneys Fees. In the event any party is required to engage the services of any attorneys for the purpose of enforcing this Warrant, or any provision thereof, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover its reasonable expenses and costs in enforcing this Warrant, including attorneys fees.
8.2 Transfer. Except as expressly provided hereunder, neither this Warrant nor any rights hereunder may be assigned, conveyed or transferred by Holder, in whole or in part, without the Companys prior written consent, which the Company may withhold in its sole discretion.
