This Warrant is issued to ________________ (“Holder”) by Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc., a Wyoming corporation (the “Company”), in connection with a certain Securities Purchase Agreement dated [ ], 2019 by and between the Company and Holder (the “Purchase Agreement”).
1. Purchase of Shares. Subject to the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth, Holder is entitled, upon surrender of this Warrant at the principal office of the Company (or at such other place as the Company shall notify the Holder hereof in writing), to purchase from the Company up to [ ] fully paid and nonassessable shares of the Company’s Class A Common Stock, no par value (each a “Share” and collectively the “Shares”) at an exercise price of $[ ]2 per Share (such price, as adjusted from time to time, is herein referred to as the “Exercise Price”).
2. Exercise Period. This Warrant shall be exercisable, in whole or in part, during the term commencing on the Issuance Date and ending at 5 p.m. eastern time on [ ]3 for one-half of the Warrants, and ending at 5 p.m. eastern time on [ ] for the other half of the Warrants (each period being referred to as the “Exercise Period”).
3. Method of Exercise. While this Warrant remains outstanding and exercisable in accordance with Section 2 above, the Holder may exercise from time to time, in whole or in part, the purchase rights evidenced hereby. Such exercise shall be effected by:
(i) the surrender of the Warrant, together with a notice of exercise to the Secretary of the Company at its principal offices; and
(ii) the payment to the Company of an amount equal to the aggregate Exercise Price for the number of Shares being purchased.
4. Certificates for Shares; Amendments of Warrants. Upon the exercise of the purchase rights evidenced by this Warrant, one or more certificates for the number of Shares so purchased shall be issued as soon as practicable thereafter bearing a restrictive legend (the “Legend”) in such form and substance as set forth in Section 10, and in any event within thirty (30) days of the delivery of the exercise notice. Upon partial exercise, the Company shall promptly issue an amended Warrant representing the remaining number of Shares purchasable thereunder. All other terms and conditions of such amended Warrant shall be identical to those contained herein, including the Issuance Date.
5. Issuance of Shares. The Company covenants that (i) the Shares, when issued pursuant to the exercise of this Warrant, will be duly and validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable and free from all taxes, liens, and charges with respect to the issuance thereof, (ii) during the respective Exercise Period the Company will reserve from its authorized and unissued Class A Common Stock, such number of sufficient Shares in order to perform its obligations under this warrant.
6. Adjustment of Exercise Price and Number of Shares. The number of and kind of securities purchasable upon exercise of this Warrant and the Exercise Price shall be subject to adjustment from time to time as follows:
(a) Subdivisions, Combinations and Other Issuances. If the Company shall at any time before the expiration of this Warrant subdivide the Shares, by split-up or otherwise, or combine its Shares, or issue additional shares of its Shares as a dividend, the number of Shares issuable on the exercise of this Warrant shall forthwith be proportionately increased in the case of a subdivision or stock dividend, or proportionately decreased in the case of a combination. Appropriate adjustments shall also be made to the purchase price payable per share, but the aggregate purchase price payable for the total number of Shares purchasable under this Warrant (as adjusted) shall remain the same. Any adjustment under this Section 6(a) shall become effective at the close of business on the date the subdivision or combination becomes effective, or as of the record date of such dividend, or in the event that no record date is fixed, upon the making of such dividend.
(b) Reclassification, Reorganization and Consolidation. In case of any reclassification, capital reorganization, or change in the capital stock (including because of a change of control) of the Company (other than as a result of a subdivision, combination, or stock dividend provided for in Section 6(a) above), then the Company shall make appropriate provision so that the Holder of this Warrant shall have the right at any time before the expiration of this Warrant to purchase, at a total price equal to that payable upon the exercise of this Warrant, the kind and amount of shares of stock and other securities and property receivable in connection with such reclassification, reorganization, or change by a Holder of the same number of Shares as were purchasable by the Holder of this Warrant immediately before such reclassification, reorganization, or change. In any such case, appropriate provisions shall be made with respect to the rights and interest of the Holder of this Warrant so that the provisions hereof shall thereafter be applicable with respect to any shares of stock or other securities and property deliverable upon exercise hereof, and appropriate adjustments shall be made to the purchase price per share payable hereunder, provided the aggregate purchase price shall remain the same.
(c) Notice of Adjustment. When any adjustment is required to be made in the number or kind of shares purchasable upon exercise of the Warrant, or in the Exercise Price, the Company shall promptly notify the Holder of such event and of the number of Shares or other securities or property thereafter purchasable upon exercise of this Warrant.
7. No Fractional Shares or Scrip. No fractional shares or scrip representing fractional shares shall be issued upon the exercise of this Warrant. As to any fraction of a share which the Holder would otherwise be entitled to purchase upon such exercise, the Company shall, at its election, either pay a cash adjustment in respect of such final fraction in an amount equal to such fraction multiplied by the applicable Exercise Price or shall round up to the next whole share.
8. Representations of the Company. The Company represents that all corporate actions on the part of the Company, its officers, directors and stockholders necessary for the sale and issuance of this Warrant have been taken.
9. Representations and Warranties by the Holder. The Holder represents and warrants to the Company as follows:
(a) This Warrant and the Shares issuable upon exercise thereof are being acquired for its own account, for investment and not with a view to, or for resale in connection with, any distribution or public offering thereof within the meaning of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”). Upon exercise of this Warrant, the Holder shall, if so requested by the Company, confirm in writing, in a form satisfactory to the Company, that the securities issuable upon exercise of this Warrant are being acquired for investment and not with a view toward distribution or resale.
(b) The Holder has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters that it is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of the purchase of this Warrant and the Shares purchasable pursuant to the terms of this Warrant and of protecting its interests in connection therewith.
(c) The Holder is able to bear the economic risk of the purchase of the Shares pursuant to the terms of this Warrant.
(d) Regulation S Exemption. The Holder acknowledges and agrees that the Warrant has not been and the Shares shall not be registered under the Securities Act, nor has the Warrant been or shall the Shares be registered under any state securities or "blue sky" laws of any state of the United States, and are being and will be issued only in a transaction not involving any public offering within the meaning of the Securities Act, and, unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States or to U.S. Persons (as defined herein), except pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act, or pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act, and in each case only in accordance with applicable state and provincial securities laws. The Holder understands that the Warrant is being and the Shares will be offered and sold to him, her or it in reliance on an exemption from the registration requirements of United States federal and state securities laws under Regulation S promulgated under the Securities Act and that Company is relying upon the truth and accuracy of the representations, warranties, agreements, acknowledgments and understandings of the Holder set forth herein in order to determine the applicability of such exemptions and the suitability of the Holder to acquire the Warrant and the Shares. In this regard, the Holder represents, warrants and agrees that:
(i) The Purchaser is a “non-U.S. Person” as defined in Regulation S promulgated under the Securities Act and is not an affiliate (as defined in Rule 501(b) under the Securities Act) of the Company and is not acquiring the Warrants or Shares for the account or benefit of a U.S. Person.
(ii) At the time of the origination of contact concerning this Agreement and the date of the execution and delivery of this Agreement, the Holder was outside of the United States.
(iii) The Holder realizes that the basis for the exemption may not be present if, notwithstanding such representations, the Holder has in mind merely acquiring the Shares for a fixed or determinable period in the future, or for a market rise, or for sale if the market does not rise. The Holder does not have any such intention.
(iv) The Holder will not, during the period commencing on the date of issuance of the Shares and ending on the first anniversary of such date, or such shorter period as may be permitted by Regulation S or other applicable securities law (the “Restricted Period”), offer, sell, pledge or otherwise transfer the Warrants or Shares in the United States, or to a U.S. Person for the account or for the benefit of a U.S. Person, or otherwise in a manner that is not in compliance with Regulation S.
(v) The Holder will, after expiration of the Restricted Period, offer, sell, pledge or otherwise transfer the Warrants and Shares only pursuant to registration under the Securities Act or an available exemption therefrom and, in accordance with all applicable state and foreign securities laws.
(vi) The Holder was not in the United States engaged in, and prior to the expiration of the Restricted Period will not engage in, any short selling of or any hedging transaction with respect to the Shares, including without limitation, any put, call or other option transaction, option writing or equity swap.
(vii) Neither the Holder nor or any person acting on his behalf has engaged, nor will engage, in any directed selling efforts to a U.S. Person with respect to the Shares and the Holder and any person acting on his or her behalf have complied and will comply with the “offering restrictions” requirements of Regulation S under the Securities Act.
(viii) The transactions contemplated by this Agreement have not been pre-arranged with a buyer located in the United States or with a U.S. Person, and are not part of a plan or scheme to evade the registration requirements of the Securities Act.
(ix) Neither the Holder nor any person acting on its behalf has undertaken or carried out any activity for the purpose of, or that could reasonably be expected to have the effect of, conditioning the market in the United States, its territories or possessions, for any of the Shares. The Holder agrees not to cause any advertisement of the Shares to be published in any newspaper or periodical or posted in any public place and not to issue any circular relating to the Shares, except such advertisements that include the statements required by Regulation S under the Securities Act, and only offshore and not in the U.S. or its territories, and only in compliance with any local applicable securities laws.
(e) No Advertisements or Direct Selling Effort. The Holder is not receiving the Warrant as a result of or subsequent to any advertisement, article, notice or other communication published in any newspaper, magazine, or similar media or broadcast over television or radio or via the Internet, or presented at any seminar or meeting. The Holder has not acquired the Warrants as a result of, and will not itself engage in, any "directed selling efforts" (as defined in Regulation S) in the United States in respect of any of the Shares which would include any activities undertaken for the purpose of, or that could reasonably be expected to have the effect of, conditioning the market in the United States for the resale of any of the Shares; provided, however, that the Holder may sell or otherwise dispose of any of the Shares pursuant to registration of any of the Shares pursuant to the Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws or under an exemption from such registration requirements and as otherwise provided herein.
(f) Legend. The Holder acknowledges and agrees that the Shares shall bear the Legend, in the form and substance as set forth in Section 10 hereof, prohibiting the offer, sale, pledge or transfer of the securities, except (i) pursuant to an effective registration statement filed under the Securities Act, (ii) in accordance with the applicable provisions of Regulation S, promulgated under the Securities Act, (iii) pursuant to an exemption from registration provided by Rule 144 under the Securities Act (if available), and (iv) pursuant to any other exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act or for estate planning purposes.
