Holder of Common Stock Purchase Warrant
Re: Inducement Offer to Exercise Common Stock Purchase Warrants
Jaguar Health, Inc. (the “Company”) is pleased to offer to you the opportunity to exercise all of the Series 1 Common Stock Purchase Warrants (CUSIP 47010C 110) (the “Series 1 Warrants”) and/or the Series 2 Common Stock Purchase Warrants (CUSIP 47010C 128) (the “Series 2 Warrants” and, together with the Series 1 Warrants, the “Existing Warrants”)) of the Company set forth on the signature page hereto currently held by you (the “Holder”). The Existing Warrants and the shares underlying the Existing Warrants (“Existing Warrant Shares”) have been registered pursuant to registration statements on Form S-1 (File No. 333-231399 and No. 333-232715) (together, the “Registration Statement”) and were issued pursuant to that certain Underwriting Agreement, dated as of July 19, 2019 (the “Underwriting Agreement”). The Registration Statement is currently effective and, upon exercise of the Existing Warrants pursuant to this letter agreement (this “Agreement”), will be effective for the issuance or sale, as the case may be, of the Existing Warrant Shares. Capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings set forth in the Underwriting Agreement.
In consideration for exercising some or all of the Existing Warrants held by you and as set forth on the signature page hereto pursuant to the terms of this Agreement (the “Warrant Exercise”), the Company hereby offers to issue you or your designees a new Series 3 Common Stock Purchase Warrant (each, a “New Warrant” and collectively, the “New Warrants”) to purchase up to a number of shares of Common Stock equal to 100% of the number of Existing Warrant Shares issued pursuant to each Warrant Exercise, which New Warrant (as defined below) shall be substantially in the form as set forth in Annex A hereto. The New Warrants will be initially exercisable beginning on the earlier of (1) the date upon which Stockholder Approval (as defined below) is obtained or (2) six months following the date of issuance, have a term of exercise of 5 years thereafter, and an exercise price equal to $0.53, subject to adjustment as provided in the New Warrants. Additionally the New Warrants shall have a cashless exercise feature, wherein, following Stockholder Approval (as defined below), each New Warrant shall be exercisable into one (1.0) share of Common Stock (subject to adjustment in the exercise price of the New Warrants as provided in the New Warrants) for no consideration (the “Alternate Cashless Exercise”). A Warrant Exercise shall be effected through the delivery by the Holder to the Company of a Notice of Exercise of an Existing Warrant.
The New Warrant certificates will be delivered within two Business Days following each Warrant Exercise pursuant to this Agreement. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, in the event a Warrant Exercise would otherwise cause the Holder to exceed the beneficial ownership limitations (“Beneficial Ownership Limitation”) set forth in Section 2(e) of the Existing Warrants, the Company shall only issue such number of Existing Warrant Shares to the Holder that would not cause the Holder to exceed the maximum number of Existing Warrant Shares permitted thereunder with the balance to be held in abeyance until notice from the Holder that the balance (or portion thereof) may be issued in compliance with such limitations, which abeyance shall be evidenced through the Existing Warrants which shall be deemed prepaid thereafter, and exercised pursuant to a Notice of Exercise in the Existing Warrant (provided no additional exercise shall be payable). The parties hereby agree that the Beneficial Ownership Limitation for purposes of the Existing Warrant is as set forth on the Holder’s signature page hereto.
Expressly subject to the paragraph immediately following this paragraph below, Holder may accept this offer by signing this Agreement below and effect each Warrant Exercise by delivering one or more Notice of Exercises from time to time on or before 8:30 a.m. ET on May 22, 2020 (the “Termination Date”). Holder agrees to furnish to the Company a completed questionnaire in the form attached as Annex B hereto within seven (7) days following the date hereof (a “Selling Stockholder Questionnaire”). Holder further agrees that it shall not be entitled to be named as a selling stockholder in the registration statement described in Section (i) of Annex C or use the prospectus contained in such registration statement for offers and resales of New Warrant Shares at any time, unless Holder has returned to the Company a completed and signed Selling Stockholder Questionnaire in the time frame described in the previous sentence.
Additionally, the Company agrees to the representations, warranties and covenants set forth on Annex C attached hereto.
From the date hereof until the 60th day following the later of (a) Stockholder Approval, and (b) the effectiveness of the registration statement covering the resale of the shares underlying the New Warrants, (the “Standstill Period”) other than in respect of an Exempt Issuance (as defined below), neither the Company nor any subsidiary of the Company shall issue, enter into any agreement to issue or announce the issuance or proposed issuance of any shares of Common Stock or any securities of the Company or any subsidiaries which would entitle the holder thereof to acquire at any time Common Stock (“Common Stock Equivalents”), including, without limitation, any debt, preferred stock, right, option, warrant or other instrument that is at any time convertible into or exercisable or exchangeable for, or otherwise entitles the holder thereof to receive, Common Stock, other than the offer and issuance of the New Warrant Shares to Other Holders (defined below) (the “Standstill”). For purposes of clarity, pursuant to the Standstill, no shares of Common Stock or Common Stock Equivalents shall be issued in connection with a Section 3(a)(9) exchange, a Section 3(a)(10) settlement, or any other similar settlement or exchange.
“Exempt Issuance” means the issuance of (a) shares of Common Stock or Common Stock Equivalents, options, or other equity awards to employees, officers, directors, or consultants of the Company pursuant to any stock or option plan or other equity award plan duly adopted for such purpose by a majority of the non-employee members of the Board of Directors or a majority of the members of a committee of non-employee directors established for such purpose, (b) securities upon the exercise or exchange of or conversion of any securities exercisable or exchangeable for or convertible into shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding on the date of this Agreement, solely at the election of the holder, provided that such securities have not been amended since the date of this Agreement to increase the number of such securities or to decrease the exercise price, exchange price or conversion price of such securities (except for such decreases in exercise, exchange or conversion price in accordance with the terms of such securities) or to extend the term of such securities (c) an issuance of shares of Common Stock under the Company’s equity line pursuant to the equity purchase agreement, dated March 24, 2020, between the Company and Oasis Capital LLC (provided that, in the case of this clause (c), the issuance price of the Common Stock is equal to or greater than $1.00 per share) and (d) securities pursuant to acquisitions or strategic transactions approved by a majority of the disinterested directors of the Company, provided that such securities are issued as “restricted securities” (as defined in Rule 144) and carry no registration rights that require or permit the filing of any registration statement in connection therewith within the Standstill Period, and provided that any such issuance shall only be to a Person (or to the equity holders of a Person) which is, itself or through its subsidiaries, an operating company or an owner of an asset in a business synergistic with the business of the Company and shall provide to the Company additional benefits in addition to the investment of funds, but shall not include a transaction in which the Company is issuing securities primarily for the purpose of raising capital or to an entity whose primary business is investing in securities.
On or before 9:00 a.m. ET on May 22, 2020, the Company shall issue a press release disclosing all material terms of the transactions contemplated hereunder. From and after the issuance of such press release, the Company represents to you that it shall have publicly disclosed all material, non-public information delivered to you by the Company, or any of their respective officers, directors, employees or agents in connection with the transactions contemplated hereunder. In addition, effective upon the issuance of such press release, the Company acknowledges and agrees that any and all confidentiality or similar obligations under any agreement, whether written or oral, between the Company, any of its Subsidiaries or any of their respective officers, directors, agents, employees or Affiliates on the one hand, and you and your Affiliates on the other hand, shall terminate. The Company represents, warrants and covenants that, upon acceptance of this offer and delivery of a Notice of Exercise, the shares underlying the Existing Warrants shall be issued free of any legends or restrictions on resale by Holder and all of the Existing Warrant Shares shall be delivered electronically through the Depository Trust Company within 1 Business Day of the date the Company receives the applicable Warrants Exercise Price, subject to the Beneficial Ownership Limitation (or “deliver versus payment” if coordinated through Ladenburg Thalmann & Co. Inc.). The terms of the Existing Warrants, including but not limited to the obligations to deliver the Existing Warrant Shares, shall otherwise remain in effect (including but not limited to any liquidated damages and compensation in the event of late delivery of the Existing Warrant Shares).
The Company covenants that it shall use commercially reasonable efforts to hold a special meeting of stockholders (which may also be at the annual meeting of stockholders) at the earliest practical date after the date hereof, and in any event on or before the 60th calendar day following May 22, 2020, with the recommendation of the Company’s Board of Directors that a proposal allowing for the Alternate Cashless Exercise be approved pursuant to the rules and regulations of the NASDAQ Capital Market, and the Company shall solicit proxies from its stockholders in connection therewith in the same manner as all other management proposals in such proxy statement and all management-appointed proxyholders shall vote their proxies in favor of such proposal. If the Company does not obtain stockholder approval (“Stockholder Approval”) at the first meeting, the Company shall use commercially reasonable efforts to call a meeting every 90 days thereafter to seek Stockholder Approval until the earlier of the date Stockholder Approval is obtained or the New Warrants are no longer outstanding.
Additionally, the Company shall file with the Securities and Exchange Commission a prospectus supplement to the Prospectus dated July 19, 2019 relating to the recent reduction to the exercise price of all of the Existing Warrants outstanding, and in addition shall file a Current Report on Form 8-K disclosing the material terms of the transactions contemplated hereby, which shall include this form of Agreement.
The Company acknowledges and agrees that the obligations of the Holders under this Agreement are several and not joint with the obligations of any other holder or any other holders of Warrants to Purchase Common Stock of the Company (each, an “Other Holder”) under any other agreement related to the exercise of such warrants (“Other Warrant Exercise Agreement”), and the Holder shall not be responsible in any way for the performance of the obligations of any Other Holder or under any such Other Warrant Exercise Agreement. Nothing contained in this Agreement, and no action taken by the Holders pursuant hereto, shall be deemed to constitute the Holder and the Other Holders as a partnership, an association, a joint venture or any other kind of entity, or create a presumption that the Holder and the Other Holders are in any way acting in concert or as a group with respect to such obligations or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the Company acknowledges that the Holder and the Other Holders are not acting in concert or as a group with respect to such obligations or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or any Other Warrant Exercise Agreement. The Company and the Holder confirm that the Holder has independently participated in the negotiation of the transactions contemplated hereby with the advice of its own counsel and advisors. The Holder shall be entitled to independently protect and enforce its rights, including, without limitation, the rights arising out of this Agreement, and it shall not be necessary for any Other Holder to be joined as an additional party in any proceeding for such purpose.
If a Holder exercises more than 1,000,000 Existing Warrants, then, from the date hereof until the earlier of (i) the date that is one year from the date hereof, and (ii) the consummation of a transaction resulting in a Change of Control of the Company, upon any issuance by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries of New Securities for cash consideration, Indebtedness or a combination of units thereof (a “Subsequent Financing”), subject to any prior such rights previously granted by the Company, such Holder shall have the right to participate in up to an amount of the Subsequent Financing equal to 100% of such Holder’s Pro Rata Portion of the Subsequent Financing on the same terms, conditions and price provided for in the Subsequent Financing. At least two (2) Trading Days prior to the closing of the Subsequent Financing, the Company shall deliver to each Holder a written notice of its intention to effect a Subsequent Financing (“Pre-Notice”), which Pre-Notice shall ask such Holder if it wants to review the details of such financing (such additional notice, a “Subsequent Financing Notice”). Upon the request of a Holder, and only upon a request by such Holder, for a Subsequent Financing Notice, the Company shall promptly, but no later than six (6) hours after such request, deliver a Subsequent Financing Notice to such Purchaser. The Subsequent Financing Notice shall describe in reasonable detail the proposed terms of such Subsequent Financing, the amount of proceeds intended to be raised thereunder and the Person or Persons through or with whom such Subsequent Financing is proposed to be effected and shall include a term sheet or similar document relating thereto as an attachment. Any Holder desiring to participate in such Subsequent Financing must provide written notice to the Company by not later than 8:30 a.m. (New York City time) on the Trading Day following receipt of the Subsequent Financing Notice.

NEITHER THIS SECURITY NOR THE SECURITIES FOR WHICH THIS SECURITY IS EXERCISABLE HAVE BEEN REGISTERED WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION OR THE SECURITIES COMMISSION OF ANY STATE IN RELIANCE UPON AN EXEMPTION FROM REGISTRATION UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “SECURITIES ACT”), AND, ACCORDINGLY, MAY NOT BE OFFERED OR SOLD EXCEPT PURSUANT TO AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OR PURSUANT TO AN AVAILABLE EXEMPTION FROM, OR IN A TRANSACTION NOT SUBJECT TO, THE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS OF THE SECURITIES ACT AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS. THIS SECURITY AND THE SECURITIES ISSUABLE UPON EXERCISE OF THIS SECURITY MAY BE PLEDGED IN CONNECTION WITH A BONA FIDE MARGIN ACCOUNT OR OTHER LOAN SECURED BY SUCH SECURITIES.
The Company acknowledges and agrees that the undersigned may from time to time pledge pursuant to a bona fide margin agreement with a registered broker-dealer or grant a security interest in some or all of the New Warrants to a financial institution that is an “accredited investor” as defined in Rule 501(a) under the Securities Act and who agrees to be bound by the provisions of this Agreement and, if required under the terms of such arrangement, the undersigned may transfer pledged or secured New Warrants to the pledgees or secured parties. Such a pledge or transfer would not be subject to approval of the Company and no legal opinion of legal counsel of the pledgee, secured party or pledgor shall be required in connection therewith. Further, no notice shall be required of such pledge. At the appropriate undersigned’s expense, the Company will execute and deliver such reasonable documentation as a pledgee or secured party of New Warrants may reasonably request in connection with a pledge or transfer of the New Warrants or New Warrant Shares.
(iii) Certificates evidencing the New Warrant Shares shall not contain any legend (including the legend set forth in Section (f)(ii) hereof), (i) while a registration statement covering the resale of such security is effective under the Securities Act, (ii) following any sale of such New Warrant Shares pursuant to Rule 144, (iii) if such New Warrant Shares are eligible for sale under Rule 144, or (iv) if such legend is not required under applicable requirements of the Securities Act (including judicial interpretations and pronouncements issued by the staff of the Commission). The Company shall cause its counsel to issue a legal opinion to its transfer agent if required by the transfer agent to effect the removal of the legend hereunder. If all or any portion of a New Warrant is exercised at a time when there is an effective registration statement to cover the resale of the New Warrant Shares, or if such New Warrant Shares may be sold under Rule 144 and the Company is then in compliance with the current public information required under Rule 144, or if the New Warrant Shares may be sold under Rule 144 without the requirement for the Company to be in compliance with the current public information required under Rule 144 as to such New Warrant Shares or if such legend is not otherwise required under applicable requirements of the Securities Act (including judicial interpretations and pronouncements issued by the staff of the Commission) then such New Warrant Shares shall be issued free of all legends. The Company agrees that following such time as such legend is no longer required under this Section (f), it will, no later than three Trading Days following the delivery by a undersigned to the Company (or its transfer agent) of a certificate representing New Warrant Shares, as the case may be, issued with a restrictive legend (such third Trading Day, the “Legend Removal Date”), deliver or cause to be delivered to the undersigned a certificate representing such shares that is free from all restrictive and other legends. The Company may not make any notation on its records or give instructions to the transfer agent that enlarge the restrictions on transfer set forth in this Section (f). Certificates for New Warrant Shares subject to legend removal hereunder shall be transmitted by the Transfer Agent to the undersigned by crediting the account of the undersigned’s prime broker with the Depository Trust Company System as directed by the undersigned.
(iv) In addition to such undersigned’s other available remedies, the Company shall pay to an undersigned, in cash, (i) as partial liquidated damages and not as a penalty, for each $1,000 of New Warrant Shares (based on the VWAP of the Common Stock on the date such Securities are submitted to the Transfer Agent) delivered for removal of the restrictive legend and subject to Section 4.1(c), $10 per Trading Day (increasing to $20 per Trading Day five (5) Trading Days after such damages have begun to accrue) for each Trading Day after the Legend Removal Date until such certificate is delivered without a legend and (ii) if the Company fails to (a) issue and deliver (or cause to be delivered) to a undersigned by the Legend Removal Date a certificate representing the Securities so delivered to the Company by such undersigned that is free from all restrictive and other legends and (b) if after the Legend Removal Date such undersigned purchases (in an open market transaction or otherwise) shares of Common Stock to deliver in satisfaction of a sale by such undersigned of all or any portion of the number of shares of Common Stock, or a sale of a number of shares of Common Stock equal to all or any portion of the number of shares of Common Stock that such undersigned anticipated receiving from the Company without any restrictive legend, then, an amount equal to the excess of such undersigned’s total purchase price (including brokerage commissions and other out-of-pocket expenses, if any) for the shares of Common Stock so purchased (including brokerage commissions and other out-of-pocket expenses, if any) (the “Buy-In Price”) over the product of (A) such number of New Warrant Shares that the Company was required to deliver to such undersigned by the Legend Removal Date multiplied by (B) the lowest closing sale price of the Common Stock on any Trading Day during the period commencing on the date of the delivery by such undersigned to the Company of the applicable New Warrant Shares (as the case may be) and ending on the date of such delivery and payment under this clause (ii).
(g) Public Information Failure. At any time during the period commencing from the six (6) month anniversary of the date hereof and ending at such time that all of the New Warrant Shares may be sold without the requirement for the Company to be in compliance with Rule 144(c)(1) and otherwise without restriction or limitation pursuant to Rule 144, if the Company (i) shall fail for any reason to satisfy the current public information requirement under Rule 144(c) or (ii) has ever been an issuer described in Rule 144(i)(1)(i) or becomes an issuer in the future, and the Company shall fail to satisfy any condition set forth in Rule 144(i)(2) (a “Public Information Failure”) then, in addition to the undersigned’s other available remedies, the Company shall pay to the undersigned, in cash, as partial liquidated damages and not as a penalty, by reason of any such delay in or reduction of its ability to sell the New Warrant Shares, an amount in cash equal to two percent (2.0%) of the aggregate Exercise Price of the New Warrant of the undersigned’s Securities on the day of a Public Information Failure and on every thirtieth (30th) day (pro-rated for periods totaling less than thirty days) thereafter until the earlier of (a) the date such Public Information Failure is cured and (b) such time that such public information is no longer required for the undersigned to transfer the New Warrant Shares pursuant to Rule 144. The payments to which the undersigned shall be entitled pursuant to this Section (g) are referred to herein as “Public Information Failure Payments.” Public Information Failure Payments shall be paid on the earlier of (i) the last day of the calendar month during which such Public Information Failure Payments are incurred and (ii) the third (3rd) Business Day after the event or failure giving rise to the Public Information Failure Payments is cured. In the event the Company fails to make Public Information Failure Payments in a timely manner, such Public Information Failure Payments shall bear interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (prorated for partial months) until paid in full. Nothing herein shall limit the undersigned’s right to pursue actual damages for the Public Information Failure, and the undersigned shall have the right to pursue all remedies available to it at law or in equity including, without limitation, a decree of specific performance and/or injunctive relief.
(h) Listing of Common Stock. The Company shall apply to list or quote all of the New Warrant Shares on the Trading Market and promptly secure the listing of all of the New Warrant Shares on such Trading Market.
(i) Registration Statement. As soon as practicable (and in any event within 30 calendar days of the date of this Agreement), the Company shall file a registration statement on Form S-3 (or other appropriate form if the Company is not then S-3 eligible) providing for the resale by the Holders of the New Warrant Shares issued and issuable upon exercise of the New Warrants. The Company shall use commercially reasonable efforts to cause such registration to become effective within 45 days following the date hereof and to keep such registration statement effective at all times until the earlier of (A) the time that no Holder owns any New Warrants or New Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise thereof and (B) the time that all of the remaining New Warrants or New Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise thereof are eligible to be sold by the Holders without compliance with the volume limitations or public information requirements of Rule 144.
