The Conversion shall not affect any obligations or liabilities of the LLC incurred prior to the Effective Time. The LLC shall not be required to wind up its affairs or pay its liabilities and distribute its assets, and the Conversion shall not be deemed to constitute a dissolution of the LLC and shall constitute a continuation of the existence of the LLC in the form of a Delaware corporation. Upon the Effective Time, all of the rights, privileges and powers of the LLC, and all property and all debts due to the LLC, as well as all other things and causes of action belonging to the LLC, shall be vested in the Corporation and shall thereafter be the property of the Corporation as they were of the LLC, and all rights of creditors and all liens upon any property of the LLC shall be preserved unimpaired, and all debts, liabilities and duties of the LLC shall thereafter attach to the Corporation and may be enforced against it to the same extent as if such debts, liabilities and duties had been incurred or contracted by it.
2. Certificate of Conversion; Certificate of Incorporation; Effective Time. Upon approval of (i) the Board and (ii) the Requisite Majority of this Plan, the Conversion shall be effected by the filing with the Secretary of State of Delaware of: (a) a duly executed Certificate of Conversion, substantially in the form of Exhibit A attached hereto (the Certificate of Conversion), and (b) a duly executed Certificate of Incorporation of the Corporation, in the form of Exhibit B attached hereto (the Certificate of Incorporation). Subject to the foregoing, the Conversion shall be effective immediately upon the filing of (i) the Certificate of Conversion and (ii) the Certificate of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware (such time of effectiveness, the Effective Time), which time shall occur prior to the effectiveness of the Registration Statement.
3. Bylaws of the Corporation. From and after the Effective Time, the LLC Agreement shall terminate and no longer govern the affairs of the Corporation, but instead the affairs of the Corporation shall be conducted under the Bylaws of the Corporation, substantially in the form of Exhibit C attached hereto (the Bylaws), and the Certificate of Incorporation.
4. Directors and Officers. The directors and officers of the Corporation immediately after the Effective Time shall be those individuals who are set forth on Exhibit D attached hereto. The LLC and, after the Effective Time, the Corporation and its Board of Directors shall take such actions to cause each of such individuals to be appointed as a director and/or officer, as the case may be, of the Corporation.
5. Effect of the Conversion on the Outstanding Securities of the LLC.
(a) Conversion of Outstanding Securities. All of the securities of the LLC outstanding as of immediately prior to the Effective Time shall, as of the Effective Time, by virtue of the Conversion and without any action on the part of any shareholder, be canceled and extinguished and converted into the right to receive common stock, par value $0.001 per share, of the Corporation (Common Stock), or Preferred Stock (as defined below), as specified in this Section 5. Upon issuance pursuant to the Conversion, all shares of Common Stock and Preferred Stock will be duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Plan, at the Effective Time, automatically by virtue of the Conversion and without any further action on the part of the LLC, the Corporation or any holder of Shares (as defined in the LLC Agreement, the Shares):
each outstanding Common Share (as defined in the LLC Agreement) immediately prior to the Effective Time shall, by reason of the Conversion, be converted into one share of Common Stock;
each outstanding Series A Preferred Share (as defined in the LLC Agreement) immediately prior to the Effective Time shall, by reason of the Conversion, be converted into one share of Series A Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share, of the Corporation (the Series A Preferred Stock);
each outstanding Series A Prime Preferred Share (as defined in the LLC Agreement) immediately prior to the Effective Time shall, by reason of the Conversion, be converted into one share of Series A Prime Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share, of the Corporation (the Series A Prime Preferred Stock);
each outstanding Series B Preferred Share (as defined in the LLC Agreement) immediately prior to the Effective Time shall, by reason of the Conversion, be converted into one share of Series B Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share, of the Corporation (the Series B Preferred Stock and, together with the Series A Preferred Stock and the Series A Prime Preferred Stock, the Preferred Stock); and
each outstanding Incentive Share (as defined in the LLC Agreement) immediately prior to the Effective Time shall, by reason of the Conversion, be converted into that number of shares of Common Stock based upon the number of Common Shares the holder thereof would receive (based upon the valuation of the LLC as determined by the pricing committee of the Board immediately prior to the Effective Time) (the Price)) assuming that the LLC concurrently distributed Common Shares with an aggregate value equal to the LLCs equity value (determined with reference to the Price) in accordance with the terms and conditions of the LLC Agreement.
(b) Conversion of Outstanding Safe. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Plan, at the Effective Time, without any action on the part of the holder of a Simple Agreement for Future Equity (a Safe) issued by the LLC and outstanding immediately prior to the Conversion, such Safe shall, by reason of the Conversion, be convertible into shares of Common Stock, Series B Preferred Stock or preferred stock of the Corporation issued in an equity financing of the Corporation after the Effective Time. The Safe shall continue to have, and be subject to, substantially the same terms and conditions in effect immediately prior to the Conversion.
(c) Issuance of Stock Certificates. If the shares of Preferred Stock and Common Stock of the Corporation are to be certificated, then, promptly following the Effective Time, the Corporation shall deliver to each record holder of Preferred Stock and Common Stock a certificate representing that number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock, Series A Prime Preferred Stock, Series B Preferred Stock and Common Stock, as applicable, into which his, her or its Shares were converted pursuant to the Conversion and the provisions of this Section 5. Each certificate, instrument or book entry representing shares of Common Stock and Preferred Stock shall be notated with a legend in substantially the following form (in addition to any legend required under applicable state securities laws):
THE SHARES REPRESENTED HEREBY HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, AND MAY NOT BE TRANSFERRED, PLEDGED OR HYPOTHECATED UNLESS AND UNTIL SUCH SHARES ARE REGISTERED UNDER SUCH ACT OR AN OPINION OF COUNSEL SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY IS OBTAINED TO THE EFFECT THAT SUCH REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED.
Such restrictive legend shall be removed in connection with (i) any transfer to the public in accordance with the provisions of Rule 144 (or any other rule permitting public sale without registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder (the 1933 Act)); (ii) any transfer pursuant to an effective registration statement under the 1933 Act; or (iii) any transfer in connection with which the transferring stockholder delivers to the Corporation an opinion of counsel reasonably acceptable to the Corporation to the effect that the transferee would be entitled to transfer such securities in a public sale without registration under the 1933 Act.
(d) No Further Ownership Rights in the Shares. All shares of Preferred Stock and Common Stock issued in exchange for Shares pursuant to the Conversion in accordance with the terms of this Section 5 shall be deemed to have been issued in full satisfaction of all rights pertaining to such Shares. Immediately following the Effective Time, Shares shall no longer be outstanding and shall automatically be canceled and retired and shall cease to exist, and the holder of any Shares immediately prior to the Effective Time shall cease to have any rights with respect thereto. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the vesting schedule and other restrictions applicable to Incentive Shares issued pursuant to Restricted Share Agreements (as defined in the LLC Agreement) prior to the Effective Time shall continue to apply to shares of Common Stock issued in exchange for such Incentive Shares following the Effective Time (except, in the case of certain employees, any restrictions relating to continued employment), and each holder of Incentive Shares shall enter into a Restricted Stock Agreement that reflects such vesting schedule and restrictions.
(e) Transfer Books. At the Effective Time, there shall be no further registration of transfers on the transfer books of the LLC of any Shares that were outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time.
(f) Fractional Shares. The Corporation shall not issue fractional shares with respect to the Conversion. Any fractional share of Common Stock that would otherwise be issued as a result of the Conversion will be rounded down to the nearest whole share of Common Stock.
(g) Structure.

As applicable, following the Effective Time, the Corporation shall apply for new state tax identification numbers, qualifications to conduct business (including as a foreign corporation), licenses, permits and similar authorizations on its behalf and in its own name in connection with the Conversion and to reflect the fact that it is a corporation. As required or appropriate, following the Effective Time, all real, personal and intangible property of the LLC which was titled or registered in the name of the LLC shall be re-titled or re-registered, as applicable, in the name of the Corporation by appropriate filings and/or notices to the appropriate parties (including, without limitation, any applicable governmental agencies). In addition, following the Effective Time, the LLCs customer, vendor and other communications (e.g., business cards, letterhead, websites, etc.) shall be revised to reflect the Conversion and the Corporations corporate status.
8. Further Assurances. If, at any time after the Effective Time, the Corporation shall determine or be advised that any deeds, bills of sale, assignments, agreements, documents or assurances or any other acts or things are necessary, desirable or proper, consistent with the terms of this Plan, (a) to vest, perfect or confirm, of record or otherwise, in the Corporation its right, title or interest in, to or under any of the rights, privileges, immunities, powers, purposes, franchises, properties or assets of the LLC, or (b) to otherwise carry out the purposes of this Plan, the Corporation and its proper officers and directors (or their designees) are hereby authorized to solicit in the name of the LLC any third-party consents or other documents required to be delivered by any third party, to execute and deliver, in the name and on behalf of the LLC, all such deeds, bills of sale, assignments, agreements, documents and assurances and do, in the name and on behalf of the LLC, all such other acts and things necessary, desirable or proper to vest, perfect or confirm its right, title or interest in, to or under any of the rights, privileges, immunities, powers, purposes, franchises, properties or assets of the LLC and otherwise to carry out the purposes of this Plan.
9. Implementation and Interpretation; Termination and Amendment. This Plan shall be implemented and interpreted, prior to the Effective Time, by the Board and, following the Effective Time, by the Board of Directors of the Corporation, (a) each of which shall have full power and authority to delegate and assign any matters covered hereunder to any other party(ies), including, without limitation, any managers or officers of the LLC or any officers of the Corporation, as the case may be, and (b) the interpretations and decisions of which shall be final, binding, and conclusive on all parties. The Members or the Board of Directors of the Corporation, as applicable, at any time and from time to time, may terminate, amend or modify this Plan.
The Conversion may be abandoned at any time prior to the Effective Time by the Corporation upon approval of the Board. If the closing of the Initial Public Offering does not occur within fifteen (15) days after the effectiveness of the Registration Statement (the Closing Period), then, unless the holders of (i) a majority of the Common Stock and the Preferred Stock and (ii) a majority of the Preferred Stock, in each case, issued upon the conversion of the Shares pursuant to Section 5(a) of this Plan and voting together as a single class on an as-converted basis elect otherwise, the Board of Directors of the Corporation shall take, as promptly as practicable after the expiration of the Closing Period, all necessary action to rescind the Conversion to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law causing the Corporation to convert back to a limited liability company and reinstate the LLC Agreement and all of the relative equity interests and other rights, preferences and privileges of all parties thereunder as existed immediately prior to the Effective Time.
10. Third-Party Beneficiaries. This Plan shall not confer any rights or remedies upon any person or entity other than as expressly provided herein.
