INVESTOR RIGHTS AGREEMENT, dated as of August 9, 2020 (as may be amended from time to time, this “Agreement”), by and among Senseonics Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), Masters Special Situations, LLC (“Masters”) and any other Purchaser (as defined below) otherwise a party hereto from time to time.
W I T N E S S E T H:
WHEREAS, the Company and the Purchasers have entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement, dated as of August 9, 2020 (as may be amended from time to time, the “Purchase Agreement”), pursuant to which, among other things, the Company is issuing and selling to the Purchasers shares of the Company’s convertible preferred stock (the “Preferred Stock”);
WHEREAS, simultaneously with the execution and delivery of this Agreement by the parties, the Company and the Purchasers have entered into a Registration Rights Agreement, dated as of August 9, 2020 (as may be amended from time to time, the “Registration Rights Agreement”), pursuant to which, among other things, the Company grants the Purchasers certain registration and other rights with respect to the shares of Common Stock issued upon any conversion of the Preferred Stock; and
WHEREAS, each of the parties wishes to set forth in this Agreement certain terms and conditions regarding ownership of the Preferred Stock.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of circumstances recited above and the mutual covenants, representations, warranties and agreements contained in this Agreement, and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, and intending to be legally bound hereby, the parties agree as follows:
1.1 Board of Directors.
(a) At or prior to the Appointment Date, the board of directors of the Company (the “Board”) shall expand its size, if necessary, to create a vacancy for one (1) qualified nominee of Masters. Masters shall have the right to designate, subject to the terms and conditions of this Section 1.1, the one nominee to the Board (a “Board Nominee”). The Board shall in good faith consider whether any such nominee is (i) qualified and suitable to serve as a member of the Board under all applicable corporate governance policies and guidelines of the Company and the Board and applicable legal, regulatory and stock exchange requirements and (ii) subject to Schedule 1.1, meets the independence requirements of The NYSE American and any other stock exchange on which the Common Stock may be listed in the future. The Board and the appropriate committees of the Board shall conduct the consideration of the qualifications, suitability and independence of the Board Nominee, and make any determinations with respect thereto in a manner consistent with considerations and determinations in respect of other members of the Board. Masters shall cause the Board Nominee to make himself or herself reasonably available for interviews, to consent to such reference and background checks or other investigations and to provide such information (including information necessary to determine the nominee’s independence status under various requirements and institutional investor guidelines as well as information necessary to determine any disclosure obligations of the Company) as the Board or any committee thereof may reasonably request; provided that in each such case, all such interviews, investigations and information are generally required to be delivered to the Company by the other outside directors of the Company. If the Board determines that the Board Nominee is qualified and suitable to serve as a member of the Board under all applicable corporate governance policies and guidelines of the Company and the Board and applicable legal, regulatory and stock exchange requirements, then the Board shall appoint such initial Board Nominee to the Board within 45 days following the Initial Closing (the date of such appointment, the “Appointment Date”). Provided that the Board Nominee then meets such requirements, then so long as Masters and its Affiliates (A) have purchased additional of the Company’s securities on any date within 150 days of the Initial Closing (the “Assessment Date”) and (B) as of such Assessment Date, beneficially own at least 10% of the Common Stock, as determined in accordance with Rule 13d-3 of the Exchange Act, measured for this purpose on the basis of the number of shares of Common Stock that were outstanding as of the Initial Closing, but giving effect to any shares of Common Stock subsequently purchased by Masters or its Affiliates after the Initial Closing (and otherwise giving no effect to any other changes in the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding since the Initial Closing) (the conditions referred to in the foregoing clauses (A) and (B), the “Nomination Conditions”), the Company shall nominate the Board Nominee for re-election as directors at the end of each term of such Board Nominee as part of the slate proposed by the Company that is included in the proxy statement (or consent solicitation or similar document) of the Company relating to the election of the Board. In the event that the Board determines that the Board Nominee does not meet the foregoing requirements, or if a Board Nominee ceases to be a member of the Board at any time and for any reason, so long as the Nomination Conditions have been satisfied, Masters may select another person as a designee for Board Nominee and, if the Board determines that such nominee meets the criteria set forth above, such designee shall become a Board Nominee and shall be promptly appointed by the Board. The Board shall undertake any review of any such new nominee by Masters in accordance with this paragraph and shall complete such review promptly, and in any event within ten (10) Business Days. Notwithstanding anything else contained in this Agreement to the contrary, if at any time following the Initial Closing, a Board Nominee is not a member of the Board for any reason and a new Board Nominee has not been appointed, Masters shall be entitled to designate an observer at meetings of the Board and all committees thereof on which another Board Nominee does not sit, and the Company shall provide all materials that are provided to other members of the Board in connection with such meetings to the observer, unless such attendance or the provision of such materials would result in an actual conflict of interest or violate any of the applicable corporate governance policies and guidelines or applicable legal, regulatory or stock exchange requirements or would result in the loss of attorney-client privilege.
(b) The Board Nominee shall be subject to the policies and requirements of the Company and the Board, in a manner consistent with the application of such policies and requirements to other members of the Board. The Company shall compensate the Board Nominee, and reimburse the Board Nominee for their reasonable expenses incurred in connection with Board service, reimburse and advance to the Board Nominee’s expenses, indemnify the Board Nominee, and provide them with coverage pursuant to director and officer insurance to the same extent it compensates, reimburses and advances, indemnifies and provides insurance for the other outside members of the Board pursuant to its organizational documents, applicable law or otherwise. The Company agrees that such indemnification arrangements will provide that such indemnification, reimbursement and advancement will be the primary source of indemnification and reimbursement and advancement of expenses in connection with the matters covered thereby and payment thereon will be made before, offset and reduce any other indemnity or expense reimbursement or advancement to which a Board Nominee may be entitled or which is actually paid in connection with such matters, including as an employee of Masters or any of its Affiliates.
1.2 Board Nominee. After the Appointment Date, at such time as Masters and its Affiliates beneficially own less than 5% of the Common Stock, as determined in accordance with Rule 13d-3 of the Exchange Act, Masters shall no longer have the right to designate any Board Nominee.
RIGHT OF PURCHASE
2.1 Right of Purchase.
(a) Subject to the terms and conditions contained in this Section, the Company grants to the Purchasers a right to purchase or subscribe for such Purchaser’s Pro Rata Portion calculated as of the date of delivery of any notice pursuant to Section 2.1(b) of any New Financing actually issued or raised, as applicable, which the Company may, from time to time, propose to issue and sell or raise, as applicable. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that any New Financing is being raised pursuant to a registration statement under the Securities Act (the “Registered Offering”), each Purchaser will be entitled to purchase its portion of the New Financing in a simultaneous private placement with the Registered Offering, but otherwise on the same terms as the Registered Offering, to the extent an exemption from registration is available at such time.
(b) In the event the Company proposes to undertake a New Financing, it shall give the Purchasers written notice of its intention, describing the type of New Financing and the price and terms upon which the Company proposes to issue or borrow the same. Each Purchaser shall have fifteen (15) days from the date of delivery of any such notice to agree to purchase or subscribe for up to its Pro Rata Portion of such New Financing, for the price and upon the terms specified in the notice, by delivering written notice to the Company and stating therein the quantity of the New Financing to be purchased or subscribed for, as applicable.
(c) The Company shall have ninety (90) days following the fifteen- (15-) day period described in Section 2.1(b) to sell or raise, as applicable, or enter into an agreement (pursuant to which the New Financing covered thereby shall be closed, if at all, within thirty (30) days from the date of said agreement) to sell or raise, as applicable, the New Financing with respect to which the Purchasers’ purchase or subscription right was not exercised, at a price no more favorable and upon other terms no more favorable in the aggregate to the purchasers or lenders of such financing than specified in the Company’s notice. In the event the Company has not sold or raised the New Financing or entered into an agreement to sell or raise the New Financing within said ninety- (90-) day period (or sold and issued or raised New Financing in accordance with the foregoing within thirty (30) days from the date of said agreement), the Company shall not thereafter issue or sell or raise any New Financing without first offering such financing to the Purchasers in the manner provided above.
2.2 Post Closing Notice(a). Notwithstanding anything in this ARTICLE II to the contrary, if (a) the Board determines in good faith that the Company’s ability to consummate the New Financing would be adversely impacted by virtue of compliance with the advance notice provisions contained in Section 2.1(b) and (b) such New Financing is permissible under the rules of the principal securities exchange on which the Company’s securities are traded, the Company may issue or raise such New Financing without providing such notice and without regard to the provisions of this ARTICLE II prior to such issuance. After the consummation of such New Financing without providing such advance notice in reliance on this Section 2.2, the Company shall provide the Purchasers written notice (the “Post Closing Notice”) of the fact that the Company issued or raised such New Financing, that such transaction has been consummated, and that the notice required by Section 2.1(b) was not provided in reliance on this Section 2.2. The Post Closing Notice shall set forth the type of New Financing issued or raised, and the price and the terms upon which such New Financing was issued or raised. The Purchasers shall have twenty (20) days from the delivery of such Post Closing Notice to elect to purchase or subscribe for up to the Purchasers’ Pro Rata Portion of such New Financing, for the price and upon the terms specified in such Post Closing Notice, and the closing of such sale or loan to the Purchasers so electing shall be consummated as promptly as practicable thereafter but in no event later than 10 Business Days after the date on which the Purchasers’ response was due (subject to extension for any required regulatory approvals or arrangement of any necessary financing by Purchaser).
