Purchase agreement for shares of Series AA Preferred Stock
PURCHASE AGREEMENT FOR SHARES OF SERIES AA PREFERRED STOCK
1. Share Purchase: Each undersigned purchaser (“Purchaser”) irrevocably agrees to purchase from Rezolute, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Rezolute” or the “Company”), that number of Shares of Series AA Preferred Stock of Rezolute set forth on the signature page hereto (the “Offered Shares” or the “Securities”) at a price of $10.00 per Offered Share (the “Purchase Price”). The Purchasers shall receive a credit for the $1,500,000 exclusivity payment previously paid to the Company. All figures are in United States Dollars unless otherwise specified.
Upon receipt by Rezolute of the Purchase Price and satisfaction of the subject to Conditions set forth herein in Section 7 of this Agreement (the “Conditions”), the Company shall sell to the Purchaser the Offered Shares free and clear of all encumbrances, and the Purchaser shall purchase the Offered Shares (“Closing”). The Closing shall take place on or about January 11, 2019, or such other date as the Parties may agree in writing (the “Closing Date”). The Securities purchased for herein, will not be deemed issued to, or owned by, Purchaser until, the Purchase Agreement has been executed by Purchaser and accepted by Rezolute, and all payments required to be made herein have been made. Within twenty (20) days after the Closing, Rezolute will deliver the certificates representing the Offered Shares purchased by Purchaser at the address set forth in the registration instructions set forth on the signature page (unless Purchaser otherwise instructs Rezolute in writing). None of the Offered Shares to be issued under this Agreement have been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (“U.S. Securities Act”), or the securities laws of any state in the United States. The Closing is subject to the fulfillment of the Conditions, which Conditions Rezolute and Purchaser covenant to exercise their reasonable best efforts to have fulfilled on or prior to the Closing Date:
|(i)||Purchaser shall have tendered the Purchase Price to Rezolute;|
|(ii)||all relevant documentation and approvals as may be required by applicable securities statutes, regulations, policy statements and interpretation notes, by applicable securities regulatory authorities and by applicable rules shall have been obtained and, where applicable, executed by or on behalf of Purchaser;|
|(iii)||Rezolute shall have authorized and approved the execution and delivery of this Purchase Agreement and the issuance, allotment and delivery of the Securities; and|
|(iv)||the representations and warranties of the Company and Purchaser set forth in this Agreement shall be true and correct as of the Closing Date.|
2. Representations and Warranties of Purchaser: Purchaser hereby represents and warrants to Rezolute:
|(i)||Purchaser has all requisite authority to purchase the Offered Shares, enter into this Purchase Agreement and to perform all the obligations required to be performed by Purchaser hereunder, and such purchase will not contravene any law, rule or regulation binding on Purchaser or any investment guideline or restriction applicable to Purchaser.|
|(ii)||Purchaser will comply with all applicable laws and regulations in effect in any jurisdiction in which Purchaser purchases or sells Offered Shares and obtain any consent, approval or permission required for such purchases or sales under the laws and regulations of any jurisdiction to which Purchaser is subject or in which Purchaser makes such purchases or sales, and the Company shall have no responsibility therefor.|
(b) Information Concerning the Company:
|(i)||Purchaser understands and accepts that the purchase of the Offered Shares involves various risks, including the risks outlined in Company’s public filings and in this Purchase Agreement. Purchaser represents that it is able to bear any loss associated with an investment in the Offered Shares.|
|(ii)||Purchaser confirms that it is not relying on any communication (written or oral) of the Company or any of its affiliates, as investment advice or as a recommendation to purchase the Offered Shares. It is understood that information and explanations related to the terms and conditions of the Offered Shares provided by the Company or any of its affiliates shall not be considered investment advice or a recommendation to purchase the Offered Shares, and that neither the Company nor any of its affiliates is acting or has acted as an advisor to Purchaser in deciding to invest in the Offered Shares. Purchaser acknowledges that neither the Company nor any of its affiliates has made any representation regarding the proper characterization of the Offered Shares for purposes of determining Purchaser's authority to invest in the Offered Shares.|
|(iii)||Purchaser is familiar with the business and financial condition and operations of the Company. Purchaser has had access to such information concerning the Company and the Offered Shares as it deems necessary to enable it to make an informed investment decision concerning the purchase of the Offered Shares.|
|(iv)||Purchaser understands that no federal or state agency has passed upon the merits or risks of an investment in the Offered Shares or made any finding or determination concerning the fairness or advisability of this investment.|
|(i)||Purchaser confirms that the Company has not (A) given any guarantee or representation as to the potential success, return, effect or benefit (either legal, regulatory, tax, financial, accounting or otherwise) of an investment in the Offered Shares or (B) made any representation to Purchaser regarding the legality of an investment in the Offered Shares under applicable legal investment or similar laws or regulations. In deciding to purchase the Offered Shares, Purchaser is not relying on the advice or recommendations of the Company and Purchaser has made its own independent decision that the investment in the Offered Shares is suitable and appropriate for Purchaser.|
(d) Status of Undersigned:
|(i)||Purchaser has such knowledge, skill and experience in business, financial and investment matters that Purchaser is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of an investment in the Offered Shares. With the assistance of Purchaser's own professional advisors, to the extent that Purchaser has deemed appropriate, Purchaser has made its own legal, tax, accounting and financial evaluation of the merits and risks of an investment in the Offered Shares and the consequences of this Purchase Agreement. Purchaser has considered the suitability of the Offered Shares as an investment in light of its own circumstances and financial condition and Purchaser is able to bear the risks associated with an investment in the Offered Shares and its authority to invest in the Offered Shares.|
|(ii)||Purchaser is an “accredited investor” as defined in Rule 501(a) under the U.S. Securities Act. Purchaser agrees to furnish any additional information requested by the Company or any of its affiliates to assure compliance with applicable U.S. federal and state securities laws in connection with the purchase and sale of the Offered Shares.|
|(e)||Restrictions on Transfer or Sale of Offered Shares: As applies to Purchaser:|
|(i)||Purchaser is acquiring the Offered Shares solely for Purchaser’s own beneficial account, for investment purposes, and not with a view to, or for resale in connection with, any distribution of the Offered Shares. Purchaser understands that the Offered Shares have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act or any state securities laws by reason of specific exemptions under the provisions thereof which depend in part upon the investment intent of Purchaser and of the other representations made by Purchaser in this Purchase Agreement. Purchaser understands that the Company is relying upon the representations and agreements contained in this Purchase Agreement (and any supplemental information) for the purpose of determining whether this transaction meets the requirements for such exemptions.|
|(ii)||Purchaser understands that the Securities are “restricted securities” under applicable federal securities laws and that the U.S. Securities Act and the rules of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC” or the “Commission”) provide in substance that Purchaser may dispose of the Offered Shares only pursuant to an effective registration statement under the U.S. Securities Act or an exemption therefrom, and Purchaser understands that the Company has no obligation or intention to register any of the Offered Shares, or to take action so as to permit sales pursuant to the U.S. Securities Act (including Rule 144 thereunder). Accordingly, Purchaser understands that under the Commission's rules, Purchaser may dispose of the Offered Shares principally only in “private placements” which are exempt from registration under the U.S. Securities Act, in which event the transferee will acquire “restricted securities” subject to the same limitations as in the hands of Purchaser. Consequently, Purchaser understands that Purchaser must bear the economic risks of the investment in the Offered Shares for an indefinite period of time.|
|(iii)||Purchaser agrees: (A) that Purchaser will not sell, assign, pledge, give, transfer or otherwise dispose of the Offered Shares or any interest therein, or make any offer or attempt to do any of the foregoing, except pursuant to a registration of the Offered Shares under the U.S. Securities Act and all applicable State Securities Laws, or in a transaction which is exempt from the registration provisions of the U.S. Securities Act and all applicable State Securities Laws; (B) that the certificates representing the Offered Shares will bear a legend making reference to the foregoing restrictions; and (C) that the Company and its affiliates shall not be required to give effect to any purported transfer of such Offered Shares except upon compliance with the foregoing restrictions. Purchaser acknowledges that neither the Company nor any other person offered to sell the Offered Shares to it by means of any form of general solicitation or advertising, including but not limited to: (A) any advertisement, article, notice or other communication published in any newspaper, magazine or similar media or broadcast over television or radio or (B) any seminar or meeting whose attendees were invited by any general solicitation or general advertising.|
|(f)||No Hedging: Neither the Purchaser nor any of its affiliates will, directly or indirectly hold or maintain any short position in or engage in hedging transactions with respect to the common stock of the Company or any other securities of the Company, other than in accordance with the U.S. Securities Act.|
|3.||Representations and Warranties of the Company: Rezolute hereby represents and warrants to Purchaser that:|
(a). Good Standing. The Company is duly formed and validly existing under the laws of Delaware, with full power and authority to conduct its business as it is currently being conducted and to own its assets; and has secured any other authorizations, approvals, permits and orders required by law for the conduct by the Company of its business as it is currently being conducted.

The Company is not a participant in any joint venture, partnership or similar arrangement.
(d). No Default. The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by the Company and the consummation by the Company of the transactions contemplated hereby do not and will not constitute a default under any of the terms, conditions or provisions of the Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws of the Company, or any material contract, agreement or arrangement to which the Company is a party or by which it is bound.
(e). Compliance with Laws; Permits. The Company holds all material licenses, approvals, certificates, permits and authorizations necessary for the lawful conduct of its business and is in material compliance with all applicable laws, rules, regulations and ordinances.

(f). Litigation. There is no action, suit, proceeding at law or in equity, arbitration or administrative or other proceeding by or before (or to the best knowledge, information and belief of the Company any investigation by) any governmental or other instrumentality or agency, pending, or, to the Company’s knowledge, information and belief, threatened against or affecting the Company or any of its properties, intellectual property and patents, or other rights which could materially and adversely affect the right or ability of the Company to carry on its business as now conducted, or which could materially and adversely affect the condition, whether financial or otherwise, or properties or intellectual property of the Company; and the Company does not know of any valid basis for any such action, proceeding or investigation.

Each employee of the Company has executed a customary confidential information and invention assignment agreement. To the knowledge of the Company, no such employee or consultant is in violation of such confidential information and invention assignment agreement.
(h). Property. The property and assets that the Company owns are free and clear of all mortgages, deeds of trust, liens, loans and encumbrances, except for statutory liens for the payment of current taxes that are not yet delinquent and encumbrances and liens that arise in the ordinary course of business and do not materially impair the Company’s ownership or use of such property or assets.

To the Company’s knowledge, no Covered Person is subject to a Disqualification Event, except for a Disqualification Event covered by Rule 506(d)(2) or (d)(3) under the U.S. Securities Act the Company has complied, to the extent applicable, with any disclosure obligations under Rule 506(e) under the U.S. Securities Act. “Covered Persons” are those persons specified in Rule 506(d)(1) under the U.S. Securities Act, including the Company; any predecessor or affiliate of the Company; any director, executive officer, other officer participating in the offering, general partner or managing member of the Company; any beneficial owner of 20% or more of the Company’s outstanding voting equity securities, calculated on the basis of voting power; any promoter (as defined in Rule 405 under the U.S. Securities Act) connected with the Company in any capacity at the time of the sale of the Securities; and any person that has been or will be paid (directly or indirectly) remuneration for solicitation of purchasers in connection with the sale of the Series AA Preferred Stock (a “Solicitor”), any general partner or managing member of any Solicitor, and any director, executive officer or other officer participating in the Offering of any Solicitor or general partner or managing member of any Solicitor.
4. Registration Rights
(a). Rezolute shall use reasonable commercial efforts to (i) prepare and file with the SEC within sixty (60) calendar days after the Closing Date a registration statement (on Form S-3, SB-1, SB-2, S-1, or other appropriate registration statement form reasonably acceptable to Purchaser) under the U.S. Securities Act (the “Registration Statement”), at the sole expense of Rezolute, in respect of Purchaser, so as to permit a public offering and resale of the shares of common stock issuable upon the conversion of the Offered Shares (collectively, the “Registrable Securities”) in the United States under the U.S. Securities Act by Purchaser as a selling stockholder and not as underwriter; and (ii) use commercially reasonable efforts to cause a Registration Statement to be declared effective by the SEC as soon as possible, but in any event not later than the earlier of ninety (90) calendar days following the Closing Date. Rezolute will notify Purchaser of the effectiveness of the Registration Statement within three (3) trading days (days in which the OTCQB is open for quotation). The initial Registration Statement shall cover the resale of 100% of the Registrable Securities, for an offering to be made on a continuous basis pursuant to Rule 415 (as promulgated by the Commission pursuant to the U.S. Securities Act, as such Rule may be amended from time to time, or any similar rule or regulation hereafter adopted by the Commission having substantially the same purpose and effect as such Rule); provided, however, that if 100% of the Registrable Securities included hereunder cannot be registered, the number of Registrable Securities on the initial Registration Statement shall be reduced pro-rata among all Purchasers.
(b). Rezolute will use reasonable commercial efforts to maintain the Registration Statement or post-effective amendment filed under this Section 4 effective under the U.S. Securities Act until the earlier of the date (i) all of the Registrable Securities have been sold pursuant to such Registration Statement or (ii) Purchaser receives an opinion of counsel to Rezolute, which opinion and counsel shall be reasonably acceptable to Purchaser, the Company and the transfer agent, that the Registrable Securities may be sold under the provisions of Rule 144.
(c). All fees, disbursements and out-of-pocket expenses and costs incurred by Rezolute in connection with the preparation and filing of the Registration Statement and in complying with applicable securities and “blue sky” laws (including, without limitation, all attorneys’ fees of Rezolute, registration, qualification, notification and filing fees, printing expenses, escrow fees, blue sky fees and expenses and the expense of any special audits incident to or required by any such registration) shall be borne by Rezolute. Purchaser shall bear the cost of underwriting and/or brokerage discounts, fees and commissions, if any, applicable to the Registrable Securities being registered and the fees and expenses of its counsel. Rezolute shall qualify any of the Registrable Securities for sale in such states as Purchaser reasonably designates. However, Rezolute shall not be required to qualify in any state which will require an escrow or other restriction relating to Rezolute and/or the sellers, or which will require Rezolute to qualify to do business in such state or require Rezolute to file therein any general consent to service of process. Rezolute at its expense will supply Purchaser with copies of the applicable Registration Statement and the prospectus included therein and other related documents in such quantities as may be reasonably requested by Purchaser.
(d). Purchaser will cooperate with Rezolute in all respects in connection with this Agreement, including timely supplying all information reasonably requested by Rezolute (which shall include completing the Selling Shareholder Questionnaire attached hereto as Exhibit A, and all information regarding Purchaser and proposed manner of sale of the Registrable Securities required to be disclosed in any Registration Statement) and executing and returning all documents reasonably requested in connection with the registration and sale of the Registrable Securities and entering into and performing its obligations under any underwriting agreement, if the offering is an underwritten offering, in usual and customary form, with the managing underwriter or underwriters of such underwritten offering. Any delay or delays caused by Purchaser, or by any other purchaser of securities of Rezolute having registration rights similar to those contained herein, by failure to cooperate as required hereunder shall not constitute a breach or default of Rezolute under this Agreement. Purchaser understands and agrees that the Company’s obligations under this Section 4 with respect to the preparation and filing of the Registration Statement are subject to Purchaser or any other purchaser of securities of Rezolute having registration rights similar to those contained herein, timely providing the Company with the Selling Shareholder Questionnaire and all information reasonably requested by the Company to prepare and file the Registration Statement.
5. Market Stand-Off: Purchaser further agrees, if so requested by the Company or any representative of its underwriters, to enter into such underwriter’s standard form of “lockup” or “market standoff” agreement in a form satisfactory to the Company and such underwriter. The Company may impose stop-transfer instructions with respect to securities subject to the foregoing restrictions until the end of any such restriction period. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Section shall only apply to any Purchaser who own, at the time of such underwritten public offering, 3% of the issued and outstanding shares of common or preferred stock of the Company on a fully-diluted basis.
6. Legend: The certificates representing the Offered Shares sold pursuant to this Purchase Agreement will be imprinted with a legend in substantially the following form:
