2.6.2 For purposes of the above calculation, fair market value of one share of Warrant Stock shall be determined by the Company’s Board of Directors in good faith; provided, however, that if on the relevant exercise date for which such value must be determined, then the fair market value per share of the Warrant Stock shall be the per-share offering price to the public as set forth in the Company’s final prospectus filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

As soon as practicable on or after such date, the Company shall issue and deliver to the person or persons entitled to receive the same a certificate or certificates for the number of whole shares of Warrant Stock issuable upon such exercise, together with payment of any fractional shares pursuant to Section 2.4.
4. EXERCISES IN CONNECTION WITH CERTAIN TRANSACTIONS. If the Company proposes at any time to effect a Deemed Liquidation Event or an Initial Public Offering, the Company shall give the Holder at least ten (10) days advance written notice (each, a “Transaction Notice”) of the anticipated closing date for such Deemed Liquidation Event or the anticipated initial closing date for such Initial Public Offering, as applicable.
If pursuant to a Transaction Notice, Holder has not elected to exercise this Warrant under Section 2 in connection with a Deemed Liquidation Event or an Initial Public Offering, then upon the effective date of the Deemed Liquidation Event or the initial closing of the Initial Public Offering, this Warrant shall automatically be deemed net exercised in full pursuant to Section 2.6 above.
5. ADJUSTMENT PROVISIONS. The number and character of shares of Warrant Stock issuable upon exercise of this Warrant and the Warrant Price therefor, are subject to adjustment upon each event in Sections 5.1 through 5.4 occurring between the date this Warrant is issued and earlier of the time that it is exercised in full or the Expiration Date:
5.1 Adjustment for Stock Splits and Stock Dividends, Etc.. If the Company declares or pays a dividend or distribution on the outstanding shares of the Warrant Stock payable in Common Stock or other securities or property (other than cash), then upon exercise of this Warrant, for each share of Warrant Stock 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 Warrant Stock of record as of the date the dividend or distribution occurred. If the Company subdivides the outstanding shares of Warrant Stock by reclassification or otherwise into a greater number
of shares, the number of shares of Warrant Stock purchasable hereunder shall be proportionately increased and the Warrant Price shall be proportionately decreased. If the outstanding shares of Warrant Stock 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 of Warrant Stock shall be proportionately decreased.
5.2 Adjustment for Other Dividends and Distributions. In case the Company shall make or issue, or shall fix a record date for the determination of eligible holders entitled to receive a dividend or other distribution payable with respect to the Warrant Stock that is payable in (a) securities of the Company (other than issuances with respect to which adjustment is made under Section 5.1 or Section 5.3) or (b) assets (other than cash) which dividend or distribution is actually made (each a “Dividend Event”), then, and in each such case, Holder, upon exercise of this Warrant at any time after such Dividend Event, shall receive, in addition to the shares of Warrant Stock, the securities or such other assets of the Company that would have been payable to Holder if Holder had completed such exercise of this Warrant, immediately prior to such Dividend Event.
5.3 Adjustment for Reorganization, Consolidation, Merger. (a) In case of any recapitalization or reorganization of the Company or (b) in case the Company shall consolidate with or merge into one or more other corporations or entities which results in a change of the Warrant Stock (each, a “Reorganization Event”), then, and in each such case, Holder, upon the exercise of this Warrant after such Reorganization Event shall be entitled to receive, in lieu of the stock or other securities and property that Holder would have been entitled to receive upon such exercise prior to such Reorganization Event, the stock or other securities or property which Holder would have been entitled to receive upon such Reorganization Event if, immediately prior to such Reorganization Event, Holder had completed such exercise of this Warrant, all subject to further adjustment as provided in this Warrant. If after such Reorganization Event, the Warrant is exercisable for securities of a corporation or entity other than the Company, then such corporation or entity shall duly execute and deliver to Holder a supplement hereto acknowledging such corporation’s or other entity’s obligations under this Warrant; and in each such case, the terms of this Warrant shall be applicable to the shares of stock or other securities or property receivable upon the exercise of this Warrant after the consummation of such Reorganization Event.
5.4 Conversion of Stock. In case all (a) the authorized Warrant Stock is converted, pursuant to the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation, into Common Stock or other securities or property, or (b) the Warrant Stock otherwise ceases to exist or to be authorized by the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation (each, a “Stock Event”), then Holder, upon exercise of this Warrant at any time after such Stock Event, shall receive, in lieu of the number of shares of Warrant Stock that would have been issuable upon exercise of this Warrant immediately prior to such Stock Event, the stock and other securities and property that Holder would have been entitled to receive upon the Stock Event, if, immediately prior to such Stock Event, Holder had completed such exercise of this Warrant.
5.5 Notice of Adjustments. Upon the occurrence of each adjustment or readjustment or the Warrant Price or the number of shares of Warrant Stock or other securities issuable upon the exercise of this Warrant, the Company, at its expense, shall promptly compute such adjustment or readjustment in accordance with the terms hereof and shall promptly give written notice to the Holder of each adjustment under Section 5 of the Warrant Price or the number of shares of Warrant Stock or other securities that remain issuable upon exercise of this Warrant. The notice shall describe the adjustment and show in reasonable detail the facts on which the adjustment or readjustment is based.
5.6 No Change Necessary. The form of this Warrant need not be changed because of any adjustment in the Warrant Price or in the number of shares of Warrant Stock issuable upon its exercise.
5.7 Reservation of Stock. If the number of shares of Warrant Stock or other securities issuable upon exercise of this Warrant that are authorized and unissued under the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation shall not be sufficient to effect the exercise of this Warrant in full, the Company will promptly take such corporate action as may, in the opinion of its counsel, be necessary to increase its authorized but unissued shares of Warrant Stock or other securities issuable upon exercise of this Warrant as shall be sufficient for such purpose.
6. NO IMPAIRMENT. The Company will not, by amendment of its Certificate of Incorporation or bylaws, or through reorganization, consolidation, merger, dissolution, issue or sale of securities, sale of assets or any other voluntary action, willfully avoid or seek to avoid the observance or performance of any of the terms of this Warrant, but will at all times in good faith assist in the carrying out of all such terms and in the taking of all such action as may be necessary or appropriate in order to protect the rights of the holder against wrongful impairment. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Company will take all such action as may be necessary or appropriate in order that the Company may duly and validly issue fully paid and nonassessable shares of Warrant Stock upon the exercise of this Warrant.
