This Voting Agreement (this “Agreement”) is made and entered into as of this 20th day of June 2019 (the “Effective Date”), by and among The Peck Company Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), those certain holders of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share, (the “Common Stock”) listed on Exhibit A hereto (referred to hereinafter as the “Key Holders” and each individually as a “Key Holder”) and Jeffrey Peck, CEO and Chairman of the Board and a substantial owner of the Common Stock (referred to hereinafter as the “Principal”, and together with the Key Holders, the “Stockholders”).
WHEREAS, under that certain Exchange Agreement dated as of February 26, 2019 (the “Exchange Agreement”), by and among Jensyn Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation (“JAC”), Peck Electric Co., a Vermont corporation (the “PEC”), and the stockholders of PEC (the “PEC Stockholders”), PEC Stockholders agreed to exchange their shares of capital stock in PEC for 3,234,501 shares of Common Stock (the “Share Exchange”) representing approximately 59% of the Company’s outstanding shares of Common Stock after giving effect to the business combination but without giving effect to the potential conversion of the Company’s outstanding public shares of Common Stock to cash. Subsequent to the execution and delivery of the Exchange Agreement, the stockholders of JAC approved the business combination (the “Business Combination”) contemplated by the Exchange Agreement.
WHEREAS, in connection with the consummation of the Business Combination, the Principal, the Key Holders and the Company desire to enter into this Agreement in order to provide for the future voting of shares of the Company’s capital stock as set forth below.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual promises, representations, warranties, covenants and conditions set forth in this Agreement, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the Company, the Key Holders and the Principal hereby agree to be bound by this Agreement, and each the parties hereto further agrees as follows:
1.1 Board of Directors.
(a) Director Elections. Each of the Key Holders shall vote any and all shares of the Company’s capital stock held by such Key Holder from time to time or over which such Key Holder has control (the “Stockholder Shares”), and shall take all other necessary or desirable actions within such Key Holder’s control (whether in such Key Holder’s capacity as a stockholder, director or officer of the Company or otherwise, subject to any applicable fiduciary duties owed to the Company), including, without limitation, calling meetings, attending and voting at meetings, executing a proxy to vote at any meeting, executing written consents to cause the election to the Company’s board of directors (the “Board”) of the persons designated by the Principal from time to time (each such person, a “Principal Designee”); provided that the election of each such person shall not be inconsistent with the rules of any securities exchange or trading market on which the Common Stock may then be listed for trading (any such rules, “Trading Rules”). Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, but subject to the limitations set forth above, the Key Holders agree to take such action as may be necessary, in their capacity as stockholders or, if and as applicable, directors of the Company, to nominate such designee(s) for election by the stockholders of the Company as a director, and to cause the Board of Directors of the Company to recommend that the stockholders of the Company vote in favor of such election.
(b) Removal; Vacancy. The Key Holders agree to take such action as may be necessary, in their capacity as stockholders or directors of the Company, subject to the limitations set forth in Section 1.1(a), to remove any Principal Designee that is a member of the Board promptly after receipt of direction from the Principal that the Principal desires to have a Principal Designee removed from the Board. In no other event (unless required by their fiduciary duty, law or Trading Rules) will the Key Holders seek the removal of a Principal Designee. The Key Holders agree that (i) if the Principal has a right to designate one or more directors pursuant to Section 1.1(a) to fill a vacancy on the Board, whether such vacancy existed on the date of this Agreement or resulted from the removal of such director, and (ii) the Principal provides written notice of the identity of the Principal Designee, that they shall promptly take such action consistent with the provisions of this Agreement and the Company’s Bylaws to effect the election of such Principal Designee as soon as practicable, but in any event no later than seven (7) days after written notice is provided by the Principal to the Company and the Key Holders, which action will be taken either at a subsequent stockholders’ or directors’ meeting or, if and as applicable, action by written consent of the stockholders or directors, subject to any fiduciary duties owed by such directors to the Company.
(c) No Liability for Election of Recommended Director. None of the Stockholders and no officer, director, stockholder, partner, employee or agent of any Stockholder makes any representation or warranty as to the fitness or competence of any Principal Designee to serve on the Board by virtue of such Stockholder’s execution of this Agreement or by the act of such Stockholder in voting for such nominee pursuant to this Agreement.
(d) Other Stockholder Action. At the request of the Principal, each of the Key Holders shall vote any and all Stockholder Shares held by such Key Holder from time to time or over which such Key Holder has control and shall take all other necessary or desirable actions within such Key Holder’s control (whether in such Key Holder’s capacity as a stockholder, director or officer of the Company or otherwise, subject to any applicable fiduciary duties owed to the Company), including, without limitation, calling meetings, attending and voting at meetings, executing a proxy to vote at any meeting, executing written consents to cause the approval, implementation, modification or termination of any matter or transaction recommended by any Principal Designee; provided that the applicable action shall not be inconsistent with the Trading Rules of any securities exchange or trading market on which the Company’s common stock may then be listed for trading.

Subject to any existing fiduciary duties, the Company agrees to use all reasonable efforts to ensure that the rights granted under this Agreement are effective and that the parties to this Agreement enjoy the benefits of such rights. Such actions include, without limitation, the use of the Company’s reasonable efforts to assist in the nomination and election of the directors as provided above. Subject to any existing fiduciary duties, the Company shall not, by any voluntary action, avoid or seek to avoid the observance or performance of any of the terms to be performed under this Agreement by the Company, but shall at all times in good faith assist in the carrying out of all of the provisions of this Agreement and in the taking of all such actions as may be necessary, appropriate, or reasonably requested by the Stockholders in order to protect the rights of the parties under this Agreement against impairment.
