The Company understands and confirms that the Purchasers will rely on the foregoing representation in effecting transactions in securities of the Company.
(a) Corporate Existence. The Company shall at all times preserve and maintain its: (i) existence and good standing in the jurisdiction of its organization; and (ii) its qualification to do business and good standing in each jurisdiction where the nature of its business makes such qualification necessary, and shall at all times continue as a going concern in the business which the Company is presently conducting.
(b) Notice of Default. The Company shall, promptly, but not more than five (5) days after the commencement thereof, give notice to Purchaser in writing of the occurrence of any “Event of Default” (as such term is defined in any of the Transaction Documents) or of any event which, with the lapse of time, the giving of notice or both, would constitute an Event of Default hereunder or under any other Transaction Document.
(c) Reservation of Shares. So long as any Securities are owned beneficially and/or of record by any Purchaser or any transferee thereof, the Company covenants and agrees that it will at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized and unissued shares of Common Stock a number of shares of Common Stock sufficient for the sole purpose of issuance upon conversion of the Convertible Notes, payment of interest on the Convertible Note and exercise of the Warrants (and/or any transferee thereof), free from preemptive rights or any other actual contingent purchase rights of persons other than the applicable Purchaser (and any other holders of any Convertible Note and/or Warrants transferred from a Purchaser).
(d) Transferability; Certificate.
(i) The Securities may only be disposed of in compliance with state and federal securities laws. In connection with any transfer of the Securities other than pursuant to an effective registration statement, to the Company, to an affiliate of a Purchaser or in connection with a pledge as contemplated in Section 7.1(d)(ii), the Company may require the transferor thereof to provide to the Company an opinion of counsel selected by the transferor, the form and substance of which opinion shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Company, to the effect that such transfer does not require registration of such transferred Securities under the Securities Act.
(ii) Certificates evidencing Securities will contain a standard legend referring to transfer restrictions under the Securities Act.
(iii) The Company acknowledges and agrees that a Purchaser may from time to time pledge, and/or grant a security interest in some or all of the Securities pursuant to a bona fide margin agreement in connection with a bona fide margin account and, if required under the terms of such agreement or account, such Purchaser may transfer pledged or secured Securities to the pledgees or secured parties. Such a pledge or transfer would not be subject to approval or consent of the Company and no legal opinion of legal counsel to the pledgee, secured party or pledgor shall be required in connection with the pledge, but such legal opinion may be required in connection with a subsequent transfer following default by the Purchaser transferee of the pledge. No notice shall be required of such pledge. At the appropriate Purchaser’s expense, the Company will execute and deliver such reasonable documentation as a pledgee or secured party of Securities may reasonably request in connection with a pledge or transfer thereof including the preparation and filing of any required prospectus supplement under Rule 424(b)(3) of the Securities Act or other applicable provision of the Securities Act to appropriately amend the list of selling stockholders thereunder. Except as otherwise provided in Section 7.1(d)(iv), any Securities subject to a pledge or security interest as contemplated by this Section 7.1(d)(iii) shall continue to bear the legend set forth in this Section 7.1(d)(ii) and be subject to the restrictions on transfer set forth in Section 7.1(d)(i).
(iv) Certificates representing Securities shall be eligible for removal of the restrictive legend (including the legend set forth in Section 7.1(d)(ii)): (i) following any sale of such Securities pursuant to the plan of distribution in an effective registration statement (in compliance with any prospectus delivery requirements) or (ii) following a sale or transfer of such Securities pursuant to Rule 144 (assuming the transferee is not an affiliate of the Company), or (iii) while such Securities are eligible for sale by the selling Purchaser without the requirement for the Company to be in compliance with the current public information required under Rule 144 as to such Securities and without volume or manner-of-sale restrictions. The Company agrees that following such time as legends are no longer required to be set forth on certificates representing Securities under this Section 7.1(d), it will, no longer than three trading days following the delivery by a Purchaser to the Company or the transfer agent of a certificate representing such Securities containing a restrictive legend, deliver or instruct the transfer agent to deliver to such Purchaser, Securities which are free of all restrictive and other legends. If the Company is then eligible, certificates for Securities subject to legend removal hereunder shall be transmitted by the transfer agent to a Purchaser by crediting the prime brokerage account of such Purchaser with the Depository Trust Company System as directed by such Purchaser.
(e) Furnishing of Information. As long as any Purchaser or any transferee owns any Securities, the Company covenants to timely file (or obtain extensions in respect thereof and file within the applicable grace period) all reports required to be filed by the Company after the date hereof pursuant to the Exchange Act. As long as any Purchaser owns Securities, if the Company is not required to file reports pursuant to such laws, it will prepare and furnish to the Purchasers and make publicly available in accordance with Rule 144(c) such information as is required for the Purchasers to sell the Securities under Rule 144. The Company further covenants that it will take such further action as any holder of Securities may reasonably request, all to the extent required from time to time to enable such Person to sell the Securities without registration under the Securities Act within the limitation of the exemptions provided by Rule 144.
(f) Integration. The Company shall not, and shall use its best efforts to ensure that no affiliate of the Company shall, sell, offer for sale or solicit offers to buy or otherwise negotiate in respect of any security (as defined in Section 2 of the Securities Act) that would be integrated with the offer or sale of the Securities in a manner that would require the registration under the Securities Act of the sale of the Securities to the Purchasers, or that would be integrated with the offer or sale of the Securities for purposes of the rules and regulations of any trading market on which the Common Stock of the Company then trades in a manner that would require stockholder approval of the sale of the Securities to the Purchasers.
(g) Securities Laws Disclosure; Publicity. By (i) 9:30 a.m. (New York time) on the trading day following the Closing Date, the Company shall issue a press release, disclosing the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents and the Closing and by (ii) 5:30 p.m. (New York time) on the fourth Trading Day following the Closing Date, the Company will file a Current Report on Form 8-K, disclosing the material terms of the Transaction Documents (and attach as exhibits thereto all existing Transaction Documents) and the Closing. The Company covenants that following such disclosure, the Purchasers shall no longer be in possession of any material, non-public information with respect to the Company or any subsidiary. In addition, the Company will make such other filings and notices in the manner and time required by the SEC and the trading market on which the Common Stock of the Company is quoted. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company shall not publicly disclose the name of any Purchaser, or include the name of any Purchaser in any filing with the Commission or any regulatory agency or trading market, without the prior written consent of such Purchaser, except to the extent such disclosure is required by law or trading market regulations.
(h) Indemnification of Purchasers. The Company will indemnify and hold the Purchasers and their respective directors, officers, shareholders, partners, members, affiliates, employees and agents (each, an “Purchaser Party”) harmless from any and all losses, liabilities, obligations, claims, contingencies, damages, costs and expenses, including all judgments, amounts paid in settlements, court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs of investigation in respect thereof (collectively, “Losses”) that any such Purchaser Party may suffer or incur as a result of or relating to any misrepresentation, breach or inaccuracy of any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement made by any of the Company in any Transaction Document or in any certificate or other instrument delivered by or on behalf of the Company. In addition to the indemnity contained herein, the Company will reimburse each Purchaser Party for its reasonable legal and other expenses (including the cost of any investigation, preparation and travel in connection therewith) incurred in connection therewith, as such expenses are incurred.
(i) Non-Public Information. The Company covenants and agrees that, except as specifically contemplated by the Transaction Documents, neither it nor any other Person acting on its behalf will provide any Purchaser or its agents or counsel with any information that the Company believes constitutes material non-public information, unless prior thereto such Purchaser shall have executed a written agreement regarding the confidentiality and use of such information.
