In exchange for the Advance Amount, effective upon the termination date of the Merger Agreement without completion of the Merger (“Merger Termination Date”), the Company shall issue at the Safe Price within two business days thereof to SSMP, subject to the terms and conditions in Section 2.1 hereof, that number of shares of common stock of the Company which following issuance shall equal not less than 2.133% of the Company Capitalization (the “Safe Shares”).

In the event that the Company completes or agrees to complete an Equity Financing within one year of the Merger Termination Date, upon completion thereof the Company will automatically issue to SSMP that number of additional shares of common stock which when added to the Safe Shares previously issued shall be that number of shares of common stock of the Company so that the number of Safe Shares shall be equal to the quotient obtained by dividing the Advance Amount by the Conversion Price (as defined below) (the “Equity Adjusted Safe Shares”). The Equity Adjusted Safe Shares issued to SSMP in an Equity Financing, shall have the identical rights, privileges, preferences and restrictions as the shares of Equity Financing Shares, other than, if applicable, with respect to (i) the per share liquidation preference and the conversion price for purposes of price-based anti-dilution protection, which will equal the Conversion Price; and (ii) the basis for any dividend rights, which will be based on the Conversion Price. In connection with the issuance of the Equity Adjusted Safe Shares by the Company to SSMP pursuant to this Section 2.1, SSMP will execute and deliver to the Company all transaction documents related to the Equity Financing, which, as may be applicable, shall include registration rights under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, for the Safe Shares or the Equity Adjusted Safe Shares, at least as beneficial as those given to any other holders of outstanding Share Capital.
