This subscription agreement (this “Subscription”) is dated as of the date set forth on the signature page hereto, by and between the investor identified on the signature page hereto (the “Investor”) and PAVmed Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), whereby the parties agree as follows:
WHEREAS, the Company desires to sell, and the Investor desires to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock, $0.001 par value per share (“Common Stock”), which currently trades on the Capital Market of The Nasdaq Stock Market (the “Principal Market”).
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual agreements contained herein, the parties hereto agree as follows:
(a) Investor agrees to buy and, subject to acceptance as provided below, the Company agrees to sell and issue to Investor, such number of shares (the “Shares”) of Common Stock, free of restrictive legend and stop transfer orders, as are set forth on the signature page hereto, for the aggregate purchase price set forth on the signature page hereto (the “Purchase Price”).
(b) The Shares have been registered pursuant to a Registration Statement on Form S-3, Registration No. 333-248709, which registration statement (the “Registration Statement”) was declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission on September 17, 2020, and is effective on the date hereof. A final prospectus supplement (the “Prospectus Supplement”) will be delivered as required by law.
(c) The Company may accept this Subscription at any time for all or any portion of the Shares subscribed for by executing a copy hereof as provided and notifying the Investor within a reasonable time thereafter. The Company has the right to reject this subscription for the Common Stock, in whole or in part for any reason and at any time prior to the Closing (as defined below) thereon, notwithstanding prior receipt by the Investor of notice of acceptance of the Investor’s subscription. In the event the Investor’s subscription is rejected, the Investor’s payment will be returned promptly to the Investor without interest or deduction and this Subscription will have no force or effect. The Shares subscribed for herein will not be deemed issued to or owned by the Investor until one copy of this Subscription has been executed by the Investor and countersigned by the Company and the Closing with respect to the Investor’s subscription has occurred.
(d) Provided the Purchase Price has been delivered to the Company and the Company has filed the Prospectus Supplement to the Registration Statement pursuant to Rule 424(b) with respect to the offer and sale of the Shares, the closing of Investor’s purchase of the Shares pursuant to this Subscription (the “Closing”) shall occur on or prior to the second business day after the date of this Subscription (the date of the Closing, the “Closing Date”); provided that the Closing Date shall occur on or prior to the third business day after the date of this Subscription if this Subscription is executed after 4:30 p.m. Eastern time. Upon the Closing, the Company shall cause the Shares to be delivered to the Investor, which delivery shall be made through the facilities of The Depository Trust Company’s DWAC system in accordance with the instructions set forth on the Investor’s signature page attached hereto under the heading “DWAC Instructions” or otherwise provided in writing by the Investor.
2. Sales During Pre-Settlement Period. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if at any time on or after the time of execution of this Agreement by the Company and an applicable Investor, through, and including the time immediately prior to the Closing (the “Pre-Settlement Period”), such Investor sells to any Person all, or any portion, of any shares of Common Stock to be issued hereunder to such Investor at the Closing (collectively, the “Pre-Settlement Shares”), such Investor shall, automatically hereunder (without any additional required actions by such Investor or the Company), be deemed to be unconditionally bound to purchase, and the Company shall be deemed unconditionally bound to sell, such Pre-Settlement Shares to such Investor at the Closing; provided, that the Company shall not be required to deliver any Pre-Settlement Shares to such Investor prior to the Company’s receipt of the purchase price of such Pre-Settlement Shares hereunder; and provided further that the Company hereby acknowledges and agrees that the forgoing shall not constitute a representation or covenant by such Investor as to whether or not during the Pre-Settlement Period such Investor shall sell any shares of Common Stock to any Person and that any such decision to sell any shares of Common Stock by such Investor shall solely be made at the time such Investor elects to effect any such sale, if any.
