AMERICAN BATTERY METALS CORPORATION
WARRANT TO PURCHASE COMMON STOCK
FOR VALUE RECEIVED, American Battery Metals Corporation, a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), hereby issues to [________________] (the “Holder”) this Warrant (the “Warrant ”) to purchase [______________] ([_]00,000) shares (each such share as from time to time adjusted as hereinafter provided being a “Warrant Share” and all such shares being the “Warrant Shares”) of the Company’s Common Stock (as defined below) at the Exercise Price (as defined below), as adjusted from time to time as provided herein during the Exercise Period (as defined below), all subject to the following terms and conditions. This Warrant is issued to Holder according to that certain Subscription Agreement between the Company and the Holder dated as of the date above.
1. Definitions. For purposes of this Warrant the following terms shall have the following meanings:
“Business Day” means any day other than Saturday, Sunday or other day on which commercial banks in the City of New York are authorized or required by law to remain closed;
“Common Stock” means the Common Stock, par value $0.001 per share, of the Company;
“Exercise Price” means $0.15 per share of Common Stock, subject to adjustment as provided herein;
“Expiration Date” means the earlier of (i) October 31, 2024 or (ii) the Redemption Date as defined in Section 3; and
“Trading Day” means a day on which there is trading or quoting for any security on the stock market.
2. Duration and Exercise of Warrants.
(a) Exercise Period. The Holder may exercise this Warrant in whole or in part on any Business Day on or before 5:00 P.M., New York Time, on the Expiration Date (the “Exercise Period”).
(b) Exercise Procedures.
(i) While this Warrant remains outstanding and exercisable in accordance with Section 2(a), in addition to the manner set forth in Section 2(b)(ii) below, the Holder may exercise this Warrant in whole or in part at any time and from time to time by:
(A) delivery to the Secretary of the Company of a duly executed copy of the Notice of Exercise attached as Exhibit A;
(B) surrender of this Warrant to the Secretary of the Company at its principal offices or at such other office or agency as the Company may specify in writing to the Holder; and
(C) payment of the then-applicable Exercise Price per share multiplied by the number of shares being purchased upon exercise of the Warrant (such amount, as calculated at the time of each exercise, the “Aggregate Exercise Price”) made in the form of cash, or by certified check, bank draft or money order payable in lawful money of the United States of America or in the form of a Cashless Exercise to the extent permitted in Section 2(b)(ii) below.
(ii) In addition to the provisions of Section 2(b)(i) above, if at any time while this Warrant is exercisable a registration statement covering the resale of the Warrant Shares by the Holder is not effective with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and the fair value of one Warrant Share is greater than the Exercise Price (at the date of calculation set forth below), the Holder may, in its sole discretion, exercise all or any part of the Warrant in a “cashless” or “net-issue” exercise (a “Cashless Exercise”) by delivering to the Company (A) the Notice of Exercise and (B) the original Warrant, pursuant to which the Holder shall surrender the right to receive upon exercise of this Warrant a number of Warrant Shares having a value (as determined below) equal to the Aggregate Exercise Price in which case, the Company shall issue to the Holder the number of Warrant Shares calculated using the following formula:
Y * (A - B)
the number of Warrant Shares to be issued to the Holder
the number of Warrant Shares with respect to which the Warrant is being exercised.
A = the fair value of one Warrant Share on the date of exercise of this Warrant
B = the then-current Exercise Price of the Warrant
For purposes of the above calculation, the “fair value” of a Warrant Share as of any date shall be the result obtained by multiplying (x) the number of shares of Common Stock into which each Warrant Share is ultimately convertible, exercisable or exchangeable, by the Market Value of one share of the Common Stock as of such date. “Market Value” means, as of any date, (a) if the Common Stock is then listed or quoted on the New York Stock Exchange, the NYSE MKT, the NASDAQ Global Select Market, the NASDAQ Global Market or the NASDAQ Capital Market, any other national securities exchange, or any tier of OTC Markets, the highest closing price per share of the Common Stock for the three (3) Trading Days prior to such date on the primary eligible market or exchange on which the Common Stock is then listed or quoted; or (b) if the Common Stock is not publicly traded as set forth above, the fair market value per share of Common Stock last determined by the Board of Directors of the Company for purposes of complying with the requirements of Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code. So long as clause (b) is applicable, the Company shall upon request, advise the Holder in writing of the most recently determined fair market value of the Common Stock for Section 409A purposes.
For purposes of Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act, it is intended, understood, and acknowledged that the Warrant Shares issued in a cashless exercise transaction shall be deemed to have been acquired by the Holder, and the holding period for such shares shall be deemed to have commenced, on the date this Warrant was originally issued.
(iii) Upon the exercise of this Warrant in compliance with the provisions of this Section 2(b), the Company shall promptly issue and cause to be delivered to the Holder a certificate for the Warrant Shares purchased by the Holder. Each exercise of this Warrant shall be effective immediately prior to the close of business on the date (the “Date of Exercise”) that the conditions set forth in Section 2(b) have been satisfied, as the case may be. On the first Business Day following the date on which the Company has received each of the Notice of Exercise and the Aggregate Exercise Price (or notice of a Cashless Exercise in accordance with Section 2(b)(ii)) (the “Exercise Delivery Documents”), the Company shall transmit an acknowledgment of receipt of the Exercise Delivery Documents to the Company’s transfer agent, if other than the Company (the “Transfer Agent ”). On or before the third (3rd) Business Day following the date on which the Company has received all of the Exercise Delivery Documents (the “Share Delivery Date”), the Company shall (X) provided that the Transfer Agent is participating in The Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) Fast Automated Securities Transfer Program, upon the request of the Holder, credit such aggregate number of shares of Common Stock to which the Holder is entitled pursuant to such exercise to the Holder’s or its designee’s balance account with DTC through its Deposit Withdrawal Agent Commission system, or (Y) if the Transfer Agent is not participating in the DTC Fast Automated Securities Transfer Program or if the Warrant Shares are not eligible for inclusion therein, issue and dispatch by overnight courier to the address as specified in the Notice of Exercise, a certificate, registered in the Company’s share register in the name of the Holder or its designee, for the number of Warrant Shares to which the Holder is entitled pursuant to such exercise. Upon delivery of the Exercise Delivery Documents, the Holder shall be deemed for all corporate purposes to have become the holder of record of the Warrant Shares with respect to which this Warrant has been exercised, irrespective of the date of delivery of the certificates evidencing such Warrant Shares.
(c) Partial Exercise. This Warrant shall be exercisable, either in its entirety or, from time to time in part, only for the number of Warrant Shares available for exercise under this Warrant. If this Warrant is exercised and the number of Warrant Shares represented by this Warrant submitted for exercise is greater than the actual number of Warrant Shares being acquired upon such exercise, then the Company shall, as soon as practicable and in no event later than five (5) Business Days after any such exercise and at its own expense, issue a new Warrant of like tenor representing the right to purchase the remaining number of Warrant Shares purchasable hereunder after such exercise.
(d) Fractional Warrant Shares. No fractional Warrant Shares shall be issued upon exercise of this Warrant. The Company, in lieu of issuing any fractional Warrant Share, shall round up the number of Warrant Shares issuable to nearest whole share.
(e) Disputes. In the case of a dispute as to the determination of the Exercise Price or the arithmetic calculation of the Warrant Shares, the Company shall promptly issue to the Holder the number of Warrant Shares that are not disputed and resolve such dispute in accordance with Section 8(f) below.
(a) Redemption. Subject to this Section 3, not less than all of the outstanding Warrants may be redeemed, at the option of the Company, at any time while they are exercisable and prior to their expiration, at the office of the Company, upon notice to the Holders of the Warrants, as described in Section 3(b) below, at the price of $0.001 per Warrant Share (the “Redemption Price”), provided that the last sales price of the Common Stock reported has been at least $0.35 per share (subject to adjustment in compliance with Section 5 hereof), on each of the twenty (20) trading days ending on the third Business Day prior to the date on which notice of the redemption is given and provided that there is an effective registration statement covering the shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the this Warrant available throughout the 30-day Redemption Period (as defined in Section 3(b) below) or, if not, the Company may effectuate on behalf of Holder a Cashless Exercise of the Warrant pursuant to subsection 2(b)(ii).
(b) Date Fixed for, and Notice of, Redemption. In the event that the Company elects to redeem all of the Warrant Shares, the Company shall fix a date for the redemption (the “Redemption Date”). Notice of redemption shall be mailed by first class mail, postage prepaid, by the Company not less than thirty (30) days prior to the Redemption Date (such 30-day period, the “Redemption Period”) to the Holder to be redeemed at its last addresses as it shall appear on the registration books. Any notice mailed in the manner herein provided shall be conclusively presumed to have been duly given whether or not the Holder received such notice.
(c) Exercise after Notice of Redemption. This Warrant may be exercised, for cash or on a “cashless basis” in accordance with subsection 2(b)(ii) of this Warrant at any time after notice of redemption shall have been given by the Company pursuant to Section 3(b) hereof and prior to the Redemption Date. In the event that the Company determines to require all holders of Warrants to effectuate a Cashless Exercise, the notice of redemption shall contain the information necessary to calculate the number of shares of Common Stock to be received upon exercise of the Warrants, including the fair value (as such term is defined in subsection 2(b)(ii) hereof) in such case. On and after the Redemption Date, the record holder of the Warrants shall have no further rights except to receive, upon surrender of the Warrants, the Redemption Price.
4. Issuance of Warrant Shares.
(a) The Company covenants that all Warrant Shares will, upon issuance in accordance with the terms of this Warrant, be (i) duly authorized, fully paid and non-assessable, and (ii) free from all liens, charges and security interests, with the exception of claims arising through the acts or omissions of the Holder and except as arising from applicable Federal and State securities laws.
(b) The Company shall register this Warrant upon records to be maintained by the Company for that purpose in the name of the record holder of such Warrant from time to time. The Company may deem and treat the registered Holder of this Warrant as the absolute owner thereof for the purpose of any exercise thereof, any distribution to the Holder thereof and for all other purposes.
(c) The Company will not, by amendment of its certificate of incorporation, by-laws or through any reorganization, transfer of assets, consolidation, merger, dissolution, issuance or sale of securities or any other voluntary action, avoid or seek to avoid the observance or performance of any of the terms to be observed or performed hereunder by the Company, and will take all actions consistent with the carrying out of all the provisions of this Warrant.
(d) Payment of Taxes. The Company will pay all transfer and stock issuance taxes attributable to the preparation, issuance and delivery of this Warrant and the Warrant Shares (and replacement Warrants) including, without limitation, all documentary and stamp taxes; provided, however, that the Company shall not be required to pay any tax in respect of the transfer of this Warrant, or the issuance or delivery of certificates for Warrant Shares or other securities in respect of the Warrant Shares to any person or entity other than to the Holder.
(e) Ownership Limitation. The Company shall not effect any exercise of this Warrant, and a Holder shall not have the right to exercise any portion of this Warrant, pursuant to Section 2 or otherwise, to the extent that after giving effect to such issuance after exercise as set forth on the applicable Notice of Exercise, the Holder (together with the Holder’s affiliates, and any other persons acting as a group together with the Holder or any of the Holder’s affiliates), would beneficially own in excess of the Beneficial Ownership Limitation (as defined below). For purposes of the foregoing sentence, the number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Holder and its affiliates shall include the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of this Warrant with respect to which such determination is being made, but shall exclude the number of shares of Common Stock which would be issuable upon (i) exercise of the remaining, non-exercised portion of this Warrant beneficially owned by the Holder or any of its affiliates and (ii) exercise or conversion of the unexercised or non-converted portion of any other securities of the Company (including, without limitation, any other Common Stock equivalents) subject to a limitation on conversion or exercise analogous to the limitation contained herein beneficially owned by the Holder or any of its affiliates. Except as set forth in the preceding sentence, for purposes of this Section 4(e), beneficial ownership shall be calculated in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, it being acknowledged by the Holder that the Company is not representing to the Holder that such calculation is in compliance with Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act and the Holder is solely responsible for any schedules required to be filed in accordance therewith. To the extent that the limitation contained in this Section 4(e) applies, the determination of whether this Warrant is exercisable (in relation to other securities owned by the Holder together with any affiliates) and of which portion of this Warrant is exercisable shall be in the sole discretion of the Holder, and the submission of a Notice of Exercise shall be deemed to be the Holder’s determination of whether this Warrant is exercisable (in relation to other securities owned by the Holder together with any affiliates) and of which portion of this Warrant is exercisable, in each case subject to the Beneficial Ownership Limitation, and the Company shall have no obligation to verify or confirm the accuracy of such determination. In addition, a determination as to any group status as contemplated above shall be determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder. For purposes of this Section 4(e), in determining the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock, the Holder may rely on the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock as reflected in (A) the Company’s most recent periodic or annual report filed with the Commission, as the case may be, (B) a more recent public announcement by the Company or (C) a more recent written notice by the Company or the Transfer Agent setting forth the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding. Upon the written or oral request of a Holder, the Company shall within two (2) Trading Days confirm orally and in writing to the Holder the number of shares of Common Stock then outstanding. In any case, the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock shall be determined after giving effect to the conversion or exercise of securities of the Company, including this Warrant, by the Holder or its affiliates since the date as of which such number of outstanding shares of Common Stock was reported. The “Beneficial Ownership Limitation” shall be 4.99% of the number of shares of the Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the issuance of shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of this Warrant. The Holder, upon not less than 61 days’ prior notice to the Company, may increase or decrease the Beneficial Ownership Limitation provisions of this Section 4(e), provided that the Beneficial Ownership Limitation in no event exceeds 4.99% of the number of shares of the Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to the issuance of shares of Common Stock upon exercise of this Warrant held by the Holder and the provisions of this Section 4(e) shall continue to apply. Any such increase or decrease will not be effective until the 61st day after such notice is delivered to the Company. The provisions of this paragraph shall be construed and implemented in a manner otherwise than in strict conformity with the terms of this Section 4(e) to correct this paragraph (or any portion hereof) which may be defective or inconsistent with the intended Beneficial Ownership Limitation herein contained or to make changes or supplements necessary or desirable to properly give effect to such limitation. The limitations contained in this paragraph shall apply to a successor holder of this Warrant.
5. Adjustments of Exercise Price, Number and Type of Warrant Shares.
The Exercise Price and the Warrant Shares issuable upon the exercise of this Warrant shall be subject to adjustment from time to time upon the occurrence of certain events described in this Section 5.
(a) Anti-Dilution Adjustments to Exercise Price. If the Market Price (as defined below) on April 30, 2020 (the “Adjustment Date”) is lower than the Exercise Price, then the Exercise Price shall be reduced to the Market Price (provided, however that under no circumstances shall the Exercise Price be less than $0.075 per share (the “Floor Price”)). Such adjustment, if required under this Section 5(a), shall be effective May 1, 2020. For purposes of this Section 5(a), the Market Price shall be the average of daily volume weighted average prices of the Common Stock for the three (3) Trading Days immediately prior to the Adjustment Date. For purposes of absolute clarity, if the Market Price on the Adjustment Date is equal to or greater than the Exercise Price on the Adjustment Date, there shall be no adjustment pursuant to this Section 5(a). The Floor Price shall be subject to adjustment pursuant to Section 5(b) and 5(c) in the same manner as the Exercise Price.
(b) Subdivision or Combination of Stock. In case the Company shall at any time during the Exercise Period subdivide (whether by way of stock dividend (other than as a result of an event provided for in Section 5(c) below), stock split or otherwise) its outstanding Warrant Shares into a greater number of shares, the Exercise Price in effect immediately prior to such subdivision shall be proportionately reduced and the number of Warrant Shares shall be proportionately increased, and conversely, in case the outstanding Warrant Shares shall be combined (whether by way of stock combination, reverse stock split or otherwise) into a smaller number of shares, the Exercise Price in effect immediately prior to such combination shall be proportionately increased and the number of Warrant Shares issuable upon the exercise of this Warrant shall be proportionately decreased. The Exercise Price and the Warrant Shares issuable upon the exercise of this Warrant, as so adjusted, shall be readjusted in the same manner upon the happening of any successive event or events described in this Section 5(b).
(c) Dividends in Stock, Property, Reclassification. If at any time, or from time to time, during the Exercise Period, (x) there are changes in the outstanding Warrant Shares by reason of recapitalization, reclassification or reorganization of the capital stock of the Company (other than as a result of any event provided for in Section 5(b) above), or (y) all of the holders of Warrant Shares shall have received or become entitled to receive, without payment therefore (other than as a result of any event provided for in Section 5(b) above):
(i) any shares of stock or other securities that are at any time directly or indirectly convertible into or exchangeable for Warrant Shares, or any rights or options to subscribe for, purchase or otherwise acquire any of the foregoing by way of dividend or other distribution, or
(ii) additional stock or other securities or property (including cash) by way of spin-off, split-up, reclassification, combination of shares or similar corporate rearrangement,
then and in each such case, the Exercise Price and the number of Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise of this Warrant shall be adjusted proportionately, and the Holder shall, upon the exercise of this Warrant, be entitled to receive, in addition to the number of shares of Warrant Shares receivable upon exercise of this Warrant, and without payment of any additional consideration therefor, the amount of stock and other securities and property (including cash in the cases referred to above) that Holder would hold on the date of such exercise had Holder been the holder of record of such Warrant Shares as of the date on which such holders of Warrant Shares received or became entitled to receive such shares or all other additional stock and other securities and property. The Exercise Price and the Warrant Shares issuable upon the exercise of this Warrant, as so adjusted, shall be readjusted in the same manner upon the happening of any successive event or events described in this Section 5(c).
(d) Certificate as to Adjustments. Upon the occurrence of each adjustment or readjustment pursuant to this Section 5, the Company at its expense shall promptly compute such adjustment or readjustment in accordance with the terms hereof and furnish to each Holder of this Warrant a certificate setting forth such adjustment or readjustment and showing in detail the facts upon which such adjustment or readjustment is based.
6. Transfers, Exchanges and Replacement of Warrant and Warrant Shares.
(a) Registration of Transfers and Exchanges. Subject to Section 6(c) and 6(d) below, upon the Holder’s surrender of this Warrant, with a duly executed copy of the Form of Assignment attached as Exhibit B, to the Secretary of the Company at its principal offices or at such other office or agency as the Company may specify in writing to the Holder, the Company shall register in the Company’s books and records the transfer of all or any portion of this Warrant. Upon such registration of transfer, the Company shall issue a new Warrant, in substantially the form of this Warrant, evidencing the acquisition rights transferred to the transferee and a new Warrant, in similar form, evidencing the remaining acquisition rights not transferred, to the Holder requesting the transfer.
(b) Warrant Exchangeable for Different Denominations. The Holder may exchange this Warrant for a new Warrant or Warrants, in substantially the form of this Warrant, evidencing in the aggregate the right to purchase the number of Warrant Shares which may then be purchased hereunder, each of such new Warrants to be dated the date of such exchange and to represent the right to purchase such number of Warrant Shares as shall be designated by the Holder. The Holder shall surrender this Warrant with duly executed instructions regarding such re-certification of this Warrant to the Secretary of the Company at its principal offices or at such other office or agency as the Company may specify in writing to the Holder.
(c) Restrictions on Transfers. This Warrant may not be transferred at any time unless such transfer is (i) registered under the Securities Act, (ii) made in accordance with the requirements of Rule 144 of the Securities Act or (iii) exempt from registration under the Securities Act as evidenced by a written opinion of legal counsel addressed to the Company that the proposed transfer of the Warrant may be effected without registration under the Securities Act, which opinion will be in form and from counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Company.
(d) Permitted Transfers and Assignments. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary in this Section 6, the Holder may transfer, with or without consideration, this Warrant or any of the Warrant Shares (or a portion thereof) to the Holder’s Affiliates (as such term is defined under Rule 144 of the Securities Act) without obtaining the opinion from counsel that may be required by Section 6(c), provided, that the Holder delivers to the Company and its counsel certification, documentation, and other assurances reasonably required by the Company’s counsel to enable the Company’s counsel to render an opinion to the Company’s Transfer Agent that such transfer does not violate applicable securities laws.
(e) Mutilated or Missing Warrant Certificate. If this Warrant is mutilated, lost, stolen or destroyed, upon request by the Holder, the Company will, at its expense, issue, in exchange for and upon cancellation of the mutilated Warrant, or in substitution for the lost, stolen or destroyed Warrant, a new Warrant, in substantially the form of this Warrant, representing the right to acquire the equivalent number of Warrant Shares; provided, that, the Holder provides the Company with an affidavit of loss and an indemnity agreement reasonably satisfactory to the Company.
7. No Stockholder Rights; Restrictive Legend.
(a) No Stockholder Rights. The Holder shall not be entitled to vote or be deemed the holder of the Warrant Shares or any other securities of the Company that may at any time be issuable on the exercise hereof, nor shall anything contained herein be construed to confer upon the holder of this Warrant, as such, the rights of a stockholder of the Company or the right to vote for the election of directors or upon any matter submitted to stockholders at any meeting thereof, or give or withhold consent to any corporate action or to receive notice of meetings or other actions affecting stockholders (except as provided herein), or to receive dividends or subscription rights or otherwise (except as provided herein).
(b) Restrictive Legend. Unless the Company is provided with satisfactory documentation that the Warrant Shares may be transferred without restriction (pursuant to Rule 144 or otherwise), each certificate for Warrant Shares issued upon the exercise of this Warrant, and each certificate for Warrant Shares issued to any subsequent transferee of any such certificate, shall be stamped or otherwise imprinted with a legend in substantially the following form:
“THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED HEREBY HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, OR ANY STATE SECURITIES LAWS, AND, ACCORDINGLY, MAY NOT BE SOLD, OFFERED FOR SALE, PLEDGED, HYPOTHECATED OR OTHERWISE TRANSFERRED UNLESS (I) SUCH SECURITIES HAVE BEEN REGISTERED FOR SALE PURSUANT TO THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, (II) SUCH SECURITIES MAY BE SOLD PURSUANT TO RULE 144, OR (III) THE COMPANY HAS RECEIVED AN OPINION OF COUNSEL REASONABLY SATISFACTORY TO IT THAT SUCH TRANSFER MAY LAWFULLY BE MADE WITHOUT REGISTRATION UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED.”
(a) Notices. Any notice or other communication required or permitted to be given hereunder shall be in writing and shall be deemed effectively given: (a) upon personal delivery to the party notified, (b) when sent by confirmed email or facsimile if sent during normal business hours of the recipient, if not, then on the next Business Day, (c) five days after having been sent by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid, or (d) one day after deposit with a nationally recognized overnight courier, specifying next day delivery, with written verification of receipt. All communications shall be sent to the Company at the address, email or facsimile number provided in connection herewith, and to the Holder at the address, email or facsimile number provided for such Holder executed in connection herewith, or to such other address as the Company or the Holder shall have furnished in writing in accordance with the provisions of this Section.
(b) Severability. If a court of competent jurisdiction holds any provision of this Warrant invalid or unenforceable, the other provisions of this Warrant will remain in full force and effect. Any provision of this Warrant held invalid or unenforceable only in part or degree will remain in full force and effect to the extent not held invalid or unenforceable.
(c) Binding Effect. This Warrant shall be binding upon and inure to the sole and exclusive benefit of the Company, its successors and assigns, the registered Holder or Holders from time to time of this Warrant and the Warrant Shares.
(d) Survival of Rights and Duties. This Warrant shall terminate and be of no further force and effect on the earlier of the expiration of the Exercise Period or the date on which this Warrant has been exercised in full.
(e) Governing Law. This Warrant will be governed by and construed under the laws of the State of Nevada without regard to conflicts of laws principles that would require the application of any other law.
(f) Dispute Resolution. Except as otherwise provided herein, in the case of a dispute as to the determination of the Exercise Price or the arithmetic calculation of the Warrant Shares, the Company shall submit the disputed determinations or arithmetic calculations via facsimile within two (2) Business Days of receipt of the Notice of Exercise giving rise to such dispute, as the case may be, to the Holder. If the Holder and the Company are unable to agree upon such determination or calculation of the Exercise Price or the Warrant Shares within three (3) Business Days of such disputed determination or arithmetic calculation being submitted to the Holder, then the Company shall, within two (2) Business Days, submit via confirmed email or facsimile (a) the disputed determination of the Exercise Price to an independent, reputable investment bank selected by the Company and approved by the Holder or (b) the disputed arithmetic calculation of the Warrant Shares to the Company’s independent, outside accountant. The Company shall cause at its expense the investment bank or the accountant, as the case may be, to perform the determinations or calculations and notify the Company and the Holder of the results no later than ten (10) Business Days from the time it receives the disputed determinations or calculations. Such investment bank’s or accountant’s determination or calculation, as the case may be, shall be binding upon all parties, absent demonstrable error.
(g) Notices of Record Date. Upon (a) any establishment by the Company of a record date of the holders of any class of securities for the purpose of determining the holders thereof who are entitled to receive any dividend or other distribution, or right or option to acquire securities of the Company, or any other right, or (b) any capital reorganization, reclassification, recapitalization, merger or consolidation of the Company with or into any other corporation, any transfer of all or substantially all the assets of the Company, or any voluntary or involuntary dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Company, or the sale, in a single transaction, of a majority of the Company’s voting stock (whether newly issued, or from treasury, or previously issued and then outstanding, or any combination thereof), the Company shall mail to the Holder at least ten (10) Business Days, or such longer period as may be required by law, prior to the record date specified therein, a notice specifying (i) the date established as the record date for the purpose of such dividend, distribution, option or right and a description of such dividend, option or right, (ii) the date on which any such reorganization, reclassification, transfer, consolidation, merger, dissolution, liquidation or winding up, or sale is expected to become effective and (iii) the date, if any, fixed as to when the holders of record of Warrant Shares shall be entitled to exchange their Warrant Shares for securities or other property deliverable upon such reorganization, reclassification, transfer, consolation, merger, dissolution, liquidation or winding up.
(h) Reservation of Shares. Prior to the expiration of the Exercise Period, the Company shall reserve and keep available out of its authorized but unissued capital stock for issuance upon the exercise of this Warrant, free from preemptive rights, such number of Warrant Shares for which this Warrant shall from time to time be exercisable. The Company will take all such reasonable action as may be necessary to assure that such Warrant Shares may be issued as provided herein without violation of any applicable law or regulation. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Company covenants that it will use its best efforts to take all such action as may be necessary or appropriate in order that the Company may validly and legally issue fully paid and non-assessable Warrant Shares upon the exercise of this Warrant and use its best efforts to obtain all such authorizations, exemptions or consents, including but not limited to consents from the Company’s stockholders or Board of Directors or any public regulatory body, as may be necessary to enable the Company to perform its obligations under this Warrant.
(i) No Third Party Rights. This Warrant is not intended, and will not be construed, to create any rights in any parties other than the Company and the Holder, and no person or entity may assert any rights as third-party beneficiary hereunder.
