This Warrant is being issued pursuant to the terms of that certain Securities Purchase Agreement dated December 23, 2020, to which Company and Investor are parties (as the same may be amended from time to time, the “Purchase Agreement”). Certain capitalized terms used herein are defined in Attachment 1 attached hereto and incorporated herein by this reference. This Warrant was issued to Investor on December 23, 2020 (the “Issue Date”).
2. Exercise of Warrant.
(a) This Warrant is exercisable in whole or in part at any time and from time to time commencing on the Issue Date and ending on the Expiration Date. Such exercise shall be effectuated by submitting to Company (either by delivery to Company or by email or facsimile transmission) a completed and signed Notice of Exercise substantially in the form attached to this Warrant as Exhibit A (the “Notice of Exercise”). The date a Notice of Exercise is delivered to Company shall be the “Exercise Date,” provided that, if such exercise represents the full exercise of the outstanding balance of this Warrant, Investor shall tender this Warrant to Company within five (5) Trading Days thereafter, but only if the Warrant Shares to be delivered pursuant to the Notice of Exercise have been delivered to Investor as of such date. The Notice of Exercise shall be executed by Investor and shall indicate the number of Warrant Shares to be issued pursuant to such exercise
(b) The Exercise Price per share of Common Stock for the Warrant Shares shall be payable, at the election of Investor, in cash or by certified or official bank check or by wire transfer in accordance with instructions provided by Company at the request of Investor.
(c) Upon the appropriate payment to Company of the Exercise Price for the Warrant Shares, Company shall promptly, but in no case later than the date that is ten (10) Trading Days following the date the Exercise Price is paid to Company (the “Delivery Date”), deliver or cause Company’s Transfer Agent to deliver the applicable Warrant Shares electronically via the DWAC system to the account designated by Investor on the Notice of Exercise. If for any reason Company is not able to so deliver the Warrant Shares via the DWAC system, Company shall instead, on or before the applicable date set forth above in this subsection, issue and deliver to Investor or its broker (as designated in the Notice of Exercise), via reputable overnight courier, a certificate, registered in the name of Investor or its designee, representing the applicable number of Warrant Shares.
(d) In no event may this Warrant be net cash settled.
2.2. Ownership Limitation. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Warrant, if at any time Lender shall or would be issued shares of Common Stock under this Warrant, but such issuance would cause Lender (together with its affiliates) to beneficially own a number of shares exceeding 4.99% of the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding on such date (including for such purpose the shares of Common Stock issuable upon such issuance) (the “Maximum Percentage”), then Borrower shall not issue to Lender shares of Common Stock which would exceed the Maximum Percentage. The ownership limitation is enforceable, unconditional and non-waivable and shall apply to all affiliates and assigns of Lender.
3. Mutilation or Loss of Warrant. Upon receipt by Company of evidence satisfactory to it of the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of this Warrant, and (in the case of loss, theft or destruction) receipt of reasonably satisfactory indemnification, and (in the case of mutilation) upon surrender and cancellation of this Warrant, Company will execute and deliver to Investor a new Warrant of like tenor and date and any such lost, stolen, destroyed or mutilated Warrant shall thereupon become void.
4. Rights of Investor. Investor shall not, by virtue of this Warrant alone, be entitled to any rights of a stockholder in Company, either at law or in equity, and the rights of Investor with respect to or arising under this Warrant are limited to those expressed in this Warrant and are not enforceable against Company except to the extent set forth herein
5. Adjustments. If Company shall issue any shares of Common Stock as a stock dividend or subdivide the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock into a greater number of shares, then, in either such case, the Exercise Price in effect before such dividend or subdivision shall be proportionately reduced and the number of Warrant Shares at that time issuable pursuant to the exercise of this Warrant shall be proportionately increased; and, conversely, if Company shall contract the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock by combining such shares into a smaller number of shares, then the Exercise Price in effect before such combination shall be proportionately increased and the number of Warrant Shares at that time issuable pursuant to the exercise or conversion of this Warrant shall be proportionately decreased. Each adjustment in the number of shares of Warrant Stock issuable shall be to the nearest whole share.
6. Certificate as to Adjustments. In the case of any adjustment in the Exercise Price or Warrant Shares, Company will promptly give written notice to Investor in the form of a certificate, certified and confirmed by an officer of the Company, setting forth the adjustment in reasonable detail.
7. Transfer to Comply with the Securities Act. This Warrant and the Warrant Shares have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “1933 Act”). Neither this Warrant nor the Warrant Shares may be sold, transferred, pledged or hypothecated without (a) an effective registration statement under the 1933 Act relating to such security or (b) an opinion of counsel reasonably satisfactory to Company that registration is not required under the 1933 Act. Until such time as registration has occurred under the 1933 Act, each certificate for this Warrant and any Warrant Shares shall contain a legend, in form and substance satisfactory to counsel for Company, setting forth the restrictions on transfer contained in this Section 7.
8. Notices. Any notice required or permitted hereunder shall be given in the manner provided in the subsection titled “Notices” in the Purchase Agreement, the terms of which are incorporated herein by reference.
