This Warrant to Purchase Stock (“Warrant”) is issued in connection with that certain Note and Warrant Purchase and Security Agreement (the “Note”), issued as of the date hereof, by Sanuwave Health, Inc. (the “Company”) to NH Expansion Credit Fund Holdings LP (the “Noteholder”).
THIS WARRANT CERTIFIES THAT, for good and valuable consideration, NH Expansion Credit Fund Holdings LP (“Holder”) is entitled to purchase such number of fully paid and non-assessable shares (the “Shares”) of the above-stated Type/Series of Stock (the “Class”) of the Company as is equal to two percent (2.00%) of the Company’s Common Stock on a Fully Diluted Basis (as defined below) as of the Issue Date plus any Post-Closing Adjustment (as defined below), if any, at a price per Share equal to the Warrant Price, which price is subject to adjustment pursuant to Section 2 of this Warrant, and upon the terms and conditions set forth in this Warrant.
As of the Issue Date, the Company’s outstanding Common Stock on a Fully Diluted Basis (as defined below) is 623,988,938. “Fully Diluted Basis” shall mean the Company’s outstanding common stock including: (i) all common stock, (ii) all preferred stock on an as-converted to common stock basis, (iii) all stock reserved for grant or issuance under the Company’s employee option pool, and assuming the exercise of all convertible notes, if any, warrants and options to purchase stock and the conversion of all rights to purchase stock and any other securities convertible into or exchangeable for Common Stock of the Company. “Post-Closing Adjustment” shall mean any increase in the Company’s outstanding common stock after the Issue Date for which a corresponding adjustment is not already made pursuant to Section 2 due to (i) the issuance of additional shares of common stock pursuant to Section 6.1 of that certain Securities Purchase Agreement by and among the Issuer and the parties thereto dated as of the date hereof (the “Securities Purchase Agreement”), (ii) any increase in the number of shares of common stock for which the warrants issued pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement become exercisable, and (iii) any issuance of additional shares of common stock as a result of the conversion to common stock of any convertible note issued on or prior to the Issue Date.
1.1 Method of Exercise. Holder may at any time and from time to time exercise this Warrant, in whole or in part, by delivering to the Company the original of this Warrant together with a duly executed Notice of Exercise in substantially the form attached hereto as Appendix 1 and, unless Holder is exercising this Warrant pursuant to a cashless exercise set forth in Section 1.2, a check, wire transfer of same-day funds (to an account designated by the Company), or other form of payment acceptable to the Company for the aggregate Warrant Price for the Shares being purchased.
1.2 Cashless Exercise. On any exercise of this Warrant, in lieu of payment of the aggregate Warrant Price in the manner as specified in Section 1.1 above, but otherwise in accordance with the requirements of Section 1.1, Holder may elect to receive Shares equal to the value of this Warrant, or portion hereof as to which this Warrant is being exercised. Thereupon, the Company shall issue to Holder such number of fully paid and non-assessable Shares as are computed using the following formula:
X = Y(A-B)/A
the number of Shares to be issued to Holder;
the number of Shares with respect to which this Warrant is being exercised (inclusive of the Shares surrendered to the Company in payment of the aggregate Warrant Price);
the Fair Market Value (as determined pursuant to Section 1.3 below) of one Share; and
the Warrant Price.
1.3 Fair Market Value. If the Company’s common stock is then traded or quoted on a nationally recognized securities exchange, inter-dealer quotation system or over-the-counter market (a “Trading Market”), the fair market value of a Share shall be the daily volume weighted average price of a share of common stock reported for the Business Day immediately before the date on which Holder delivers this Warrant together with its Notice of Exercise to the Company. If the Company’s common stock is not traded in a Trading Market, the Board of Directors of the Company shall determine the fair market value of a Share in its reasonable good faith judgment. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Holder advises the Company in writing that Holder disagrees with such determination, then Company and Holder shall promptly agree upon a reputable investment banking firm to undertake such valuation. If the valuation of such investment banking firm is greater than that determined by the Board of Directors of the Company, then all fees and expenses of such investment banking firm shall be paid by Company. In all other circumstances, such fees and expenses shall be paid by Holder.
1.4 Delivery of Certificate and New Warrant. Within a reasonable time after Holder exercises this Warrant in the manner set forth in Section 1.1 or 1.2 above, the Company shall deliver to Holder a certificate representing the Shares issued to Holder upon such exercise and, if this Warrant has not been fully exercised and has not expired, a new warrant of like tenor representing the Shares not so acquired.
1.5 Replacement of Warrant. On receipt of evidence reasonably satisfactory to the Company of the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of this Warrant and, in the case of loss, theft or destruction, on delivery of an indemnity agreement reasonably satisfactory in form, substance and amount to the Company or, in the case of mutilation, on surrender of this Warrant to the Company for cancellation, the Company shall, within a reasonable time, execute and deliver to Holder, in lieu of this Warrant, a new warrant of like tenor and amount.
1.6 Treatment of Warrant Upon Acquisition of Company.
(a) For the purpose of this Warrant, “Acquisition” means any transaction or series of related transactions involving: (i) the sale, lease, exclusive license, or other disposition of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company; (ii) any merger or consolidation of the Company into or with another person or entity (other than a merger or consolidation effected exclusively to change the Company’s domicile), or any other corporate reorganization, in which the stockholders of the Company in their capacity as such immediately prior to such merger, consolidation or reorganization, own less than a majority of the Company’s (or the surviving or successor entity’s) outstanding voting power immediately after such merger, consolidation or reorganization; or (iii) any sale or other transfer by the stockholders of the Company of shares representing at least a majority of the Company’s then-total outstanding combined voting power.
(b) In the event of an Acquisition in which (i) the consideration to be received by the Company’s stockholders consists solely of cash, solely of Marketable Securities or a combination of cash and Marketable Securities (a “Cash/Public Acquisition”) and (ii) the outstanding amounts due under the Notes (as defined in the Purchase Agreement) have been repaid in full prior to or concurrently with such Acquisition, this Warrant shall be automatically deemed exercised pursuant to Section 1.2, effective immediately prior to and contingent upon the consummation of such Acquisition provided that if the sum of the Fair Market Value of the Marketable Securities and Cash payable to Holder is less than the Minimum Cash Value, the Company shall, as a condition to the exercise of the Warrant, subject to the Company having legally available funds, pay Holder in cash the amount of such difference. For purposes of the foregoing sentence, the value of Marketable Securities shall be determined as set forth in 1.3 by reference to the date immediately prior to the date the Acquisition is consummated. “Minimum Cash Value” means the Put Amount (as defined below).
(c) The Company shall provide Holder with written notice of its request relating to the Cash/Public Acquisition (together with such reasonable information as Holder may reasonably require regarding the treatment of this Warrant in connection with such contemplated Cash/Public Acquisition giving rise to such notice), which is to be delivered to Holder not less than seven (7) Business Days prior to the closing of the proposed Cash/Public Acquisition. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if, immediately prior to the Cash/Public Acquisition, the fair market value of one Share (or other security issuable upon the exercise hereof) as determined in accordance with Section 1.3 above would be greater than the Warrant Price in effect on such date, then this Warrant shall automatically be deemed on and as of such date to be exercised pursuant to Section 1.2 above as to all Shares (or such other securities) for which it shall not previously have been exercised, and the Company shall promptly notify the Holder of the number of Shares (or such other securities) issued upon such exercise to the Holder.
(d) Upon the closing of any Acquisition other than a Cash/Public Acquisition defined above, the Warrant shall be treated in accordance with Section 1.7.
(e) As used in this Warrant, “Marketable Securities” means securities meeting all of the following requirements: (i) the issuer thereof is then subject to the reporting requirements of Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and is then current in its filing of all required reports and other information under the Act and the Exchange Act; (ii) the class and series of shares or other security of the issuer that would be received by Holder in connection with the Acquisition were Holder to exercise this Warrant on or prior to the closing thereof is then traded in Trading Market; and (iii) Holder would be able to publicly re-sell, within six (6) months following the closing of such Acquisition, all of the issuer’s shares and/or other securities that would be received by Holder in such Acquisition were Holder to exercise this Warrant in full on or prior to the closing of such Acquisition.
1.7 Put Option. At any time after repayment (or other satisfaction of) the Note, but prior to the Expiration Date or any exercise in full of this Warrant, Holder shall have the option to require the Company to, and the Company shall, subject to the Company having legally available funds, immediately upon written request therefor, repurchase this Warrant, for cash in an amount equal to the Put Amount (as defined below). Without limiting the foregoing, in the event of a Change of Control (as defined in the Note), Acquisition and/or acceleration of the Note (whether following an Event of Default (as defined therein) or otherwise), in each case other than a Cash/Public Acquisition in which case the Warrant will be treated in accordance with Section 1.6(b), while the Warrant is outstanding and prior to any exercise in full of this Warrant, the Company shall, subject to the Company having legally available funds, remit to Holder the Put Amount in connection with repayment or other satisfaction of the Note. After remittance of the Put Amount, the Warrant shall be cancelled and of no further force or effect. As used in this Warrant, “Put Amount” means an amount equal to (i) Two Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($2,500,000.00), multiplied by (ii) the quotient obtained by dividing (x) the number of Shares for which the Warrant is exercisable at such time, by (y) the original maximum number of Shares for which the Warrant was originally exercisable at the time of issuance (as may be adjusted from time to time pursuant to Section 2).
ADJUSTMENTS TO THE SHARES AND WARRANT PRICE.
2.1 Stock Dividends, Splits, Etc. If the Company declares or pays a dividend or distribution on the outstanding shares of the Class payable in common stock or other securities or property (other than cash), then upon exercise of this Warrant, for each Share acquired, Holder shall receive, without additional cost to Holder, the total number and kind of securities and property which Holder would have received had Holder owned the Shares of record as of the date the dividend or distribution occurred. If the Company subdivides the outstanding shares of the Class by reclassification or otherwise into a greater number of shares, the number of Shares purchasable hereunder shall be proportionately increased and the Warrant Price shall be proportionately decreased. If the outstanding shares of the Class are combined or consolidated, by reclassification or otherwise, into a lesser number of shares, the Warrant Price shall be proportionately increased and the number of Shares shall be proportionately decreased.
2.2 Reclassification, Exchange, Combinations or Substitution. Upon any event whereby all of the outstanding shares of the Class are reclassified, exchanged, combined, substituted, or replaced for, into, with or by Company securities of a different class and/or series, then from and after the consummation of such event, this Warrant will be exercisable for the number, class and series of Company securities that Holder would have received had the Shares been outstanding on and as of the consummation of such event, and subject to further adjustment thereafter from time to time in accordance with the provisions of this Warrant. The provisions of this Section 2.2 shall similarly apply to successive reclassifications, exchanges, combinations substitutions, replacements or other similar events.
2.3 No Fractional Share. No fractional Share shall be issuable upon exercise of this Warrant and the number of Shares to be issued shall be rounded down to the nearest whole Share. If a fractional Share interest arises upon any exercise of the Warrant, the Company shall eliminate such fractional Share interest by paying Holder in cash the amount computed by multiplying the fractional interest by (i) the Fair Market Value of a full Share, less (ii) the then-effective Warrant Price.
2.4 Notice/Certificate as to Adjustments. Upon each adjustment of the Warrant Price, Class and/or number of Shares, the Company, at the Company’s expense, shall notify Holder in writing within a reasonable time setting forth the adjustments to the Warrant Price, Class and/or number of Shares and facts upon which such adjustment is based. The Company shall, upon written request from Holder, furnish Holder with a certificate of its Chief Financial Officer, including computations of such adjustment and the Warrant Price, Class and number of Shares in effect upon the date of such adjustment.
