FOR THE PURCHASE OF
CLASS A COMMON STOCK
1. Issuance. For value received, the receipt of which is hereby acknowledged by SRAX, Inc.., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), BRF Finance Co., LLC, or registered and permitted assigns (the “Holder”), is hereby granted the right to purchase, at any time or times on or after February 28, 2020 (the “Initial Exercisability Date”) until 5:00 P.M., Pacific Standard Time on October 31, 2022 (the “Expiration Date”), Five Hundred Thousand (500,000) fully paid and nonassessable shares of the Company’s Class A Common Stock, par value US$0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), at an exercise price of US$[●] per share (the “Exercise Price”).
This Warrant is being issued by the Company in connection with, but for the avoidance of doubt is detached from, the Company’s execution of a Term Loan Note in the aggregate principal amount of $5,000,000.00 to the Warrant Holder (the “Term Loan Note”) pursuant to that certain Term Loan and Security Agreement dated as of February 28, 2020 (the “Term Loan and Security Agreement”; capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the respective meanings set forth in the Term Loan and Security Agreement or the Term Loan Note).
2. Procedure for Exercise.
a. At any time after the Initial Exercisability Date, and upon surrender of this Warrant with the annexed Notice of Exercise Form duly executed, together with payment in cash of the Exercise Price (a “Cash Exercise”) (provided that the Exercise Price shall be deemed delivered in connection with the delivery of a Notice of Exercise Form in connection with a Cashless Exercise (as defined below), if applicable) for the shares of Common Stock purchased (the “Warrant Shares”), the Holder shall be entitled to receive a certificate or certificates for the shares of Common Stock so purchased. This Warrant may be exercised in whole or in part. On any such partial exercise, provided the Holder has surrendered the original Warrant, the Company will issue and deliver to the order of the Holder a new Warrant of like tenor, in the name of the Holder, for the whole number of shares of Common Stock for which such Warrant may still be exercised. No fractional shares of Common Stock are to be issued upon the exercise of this Warrant, but rather the number of shares of Common Stock to be issued shall be rounded up to the nearest whole number.
b. If at any time after the six (6) month anniversary of the issuance date of the this Warrant, there is no effective registration statement registering, or the prospectus contained therein is not available for the issuance and resale of the Warrant Shares, then this Warrant may also be exercised, in whole or in part, at such time by means of a “cashless exercise” in which the Holder shall be entitled to receive a number of Warrant Shares computed using the following formula (a “Cashless Exercise”):
X = Y (A-B)
| || ||X= the number of shares of Common Stock to be issued to the Holder.|
| || ||Y= the number of shares of Common Stock to be purchased under this Warrant.|
| || ||A= Fair Market Value per share of one share of Common Stock as of the date of exercise.|
| || ||B= the Exercise Price (as adjusted).|
For purposes of this Warrant, “Fair Market Value” means, as of any date, the value of Common Stock determined as follows:
(i) If the Common Stock is listed on any established stock exchange or a national market system, including without limitation any division or subdivision of the Nasdaq Stock Market (each a “Principal Market”), its Fair Market Value will be the closing sales price for such stock (or the closing bid, if no sales were reported) as quoted on such exchange or system on the date of exercise, as reported in The Wall Street Journal or such other source as the Board of Directors of the Company deem reliable;
(ii) If the Common Stock is regularly quoted by a recognized securities dealer but selling prices are not reported, including without limitation quotation through the over the counter bulletin board (“OTCQB®”) quotation service administered by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”)(each a “Quotation Market”), the Fair Market Value of a Share will be the closing price for the Common Stock on the date of exercise, as reported in The Wall Street Journal or such other source as the Board of Directors of the Company deem reliable; or
(iii) In the absence of an established market for the Common Stock, the Fair Market Value will be determined in good faith by the Company’s Board of Directors.
For the sake of clarity and in an abundance of caution, no Cashless Exercise of this Warrant shall be able to be affected by the Holder at any time and to the extent that the shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of such Warrant (or portion thereof) are registered in a Registration Statement declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
c. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Warrant, this Warrant shall not be exercisable by the Holder hereof to the extent (but only to the extent) that the Holder or any of its affiliates would beneficially own in excess of 9.99% (the “Maximum Percentage”) of the Common Stock. To the extent the above limitation applies, the determination of whether this Warrant shall be exercisable (vis-à-vis other convertible, exercisable or exchangeable securities owned by the Holder or any of its affiliates) and of which such securities shall be exercisable (as among all such securities owned by the Holder) shall, subject to such Maximum Percentage limitation, be determined on the basis of the first submission to the Company for conversion, exercise or exchange (as the case may be). No prior inability to exercise this Warrant pursuant to this paragraph shall have any effect on the applicability of the provisions of this paragraph with respect to any subsequent determination of exercisability. For the purposes of this paragraph, beneficial ownership and all determinations and calculations (including, without limitation, with respect to calculations of percentage ownership) shall be determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act (as defined in the Term Loan and Security Agreement) and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder. The provisions of this paragraph shall be implemented in a manner otherwise than in strict conformity with the terms of this paragraph to correct this paragraph (or any portion hereof) which may be defective or inconsistent with the intended Maximum Percentage beneficial ownership limitation herein contained or to make changes or supplements necessary or desirable to properly give effect to such Maximum Percentage limitation. The limitations contained in this paragraph shall apply to a successor Holder of this Warrant.
3. Reservation and Listing of Shares; Piggyback Registration.
a. The Company hereby agrees that at all times during the term of this Warrant there shall be reserved for issuance upon exercise of this Warrant such number of shares of Common Stock as shall be required for issuance upon exercise hereof. Any shares issuable upon exercise of this Warrant will be duly and validly issued, fully paid and free of all liens and charges and not subject to any preemptive rights. The Company, at its expense, shall cause such securities to be included in or listed on all markets or stock exchanges in or on which the Common Stock is included or listed not later than the date on which the Common Stock is first included or listed on any such market or exchange and will thereafter maintain such inclusion or listing of all shares of Common Stock from time to time issuable upon exercise of this Warrant.
b. The Company covenants and agrees with the Holder that if, at any time prior to the Expiration Date, it proposes to file a registration statement with respect to any class of equity or equity-related security (other than in connection with an offering to the Company’s employees or in connection with an acquisition, merger or similar transaction) under the Act in a primary registration on behalf of the Company and/or in a secondary registration on behalf of holders of such securities and the registration form to be used may be used for the resale of the Warrant Shares, the Company will either include the Warrant Shares in such registration statement or give prompt written notice to the Holder of its intention to file a registration statement and will offer to include the Warrant Shares in such registration statement,
4. Mutilation or Loss of Warrant. Upon receipt by the Company of evidence satisfactory to it of the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of this Warrant, and (in the case of loss, theft or destruction) receipt of reasonably satisfactory indemnification, and (in the case of mutilation) upon surrender and cancellation of this Warrant, the Company will execute and deliver a new warrant of like tenor and date and any such lost, stolen, destroyed or mutilated Warrant shall thereupon become void.
5. No Rights as Shareholder. The Holder shall not, by virtue hereof, be entitled to any rights of a shareholder of the Company, either at law or in equity, and the rights of the Holder are limited to those expressed in this Warrant and are not enforceable against the Company except to the extent set forth herein.
6. Effect of Certain Transactions
6.1 Adjustments for Stock Splits, Stock Dividends Etc. If the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock of the Company are increased or decreased by a stock split, reverse stock split, stock dividend, stock combination, recapitalization or the like, the Exercise Price and the number of shares purchasable pursuant to this Warrant shall be adjusted proportionately so that the ratio of (i) the aggregate number of shares purchasable by exercise of this Warrant to (ii) the total number of shares outstanding immediately following such stock split, reverse stock split, stock dividend, stock combination, recapitalization or the like shall remain unchanged, and the aggregate purchase price of shares issuable pursuant to this Warrant shall remain unchanged.
6.2 Expiration Upon Certain Transactions. If at any time the Company plans to sell all or substantially all of its assets or engage in a merger or consolidation of the Company in which the Company will not survive and in which holders of the Common Stock will receive consideration at or above the Exercise Price, as adjusted (other than a merger or consolidation with or into a wholly- or partially-owned subsidiary of the Company), the Company will give the Holder of this Warrant advance written notice.
6.3 Adjustments for Reorganization, Mergers, Consolidations or Sales of Assets. If at any time there is a capital reorganization of the Common Stock (other than a recapitalization, combination, or the like provided for elsewhere in this Section 6) or merger or consolidation of the Company with another corporation (other than one covered by Section 6.2), or the sale of all or substantially all of the Company’s properties and assets to any other person, then, as a part of such reorganization, merger, consolidation or sale, provision shall be made so that the Holder shall thereafter be entitled to receive upon exercise of this Warrant (and only to the extent this Warrant is exercised), the number of shares of stock or other securities or property of the Company, or of the successor corporation resulting from such merger or consolidation or sale, to which a holder of Common Stock, or other securities, deliverable upon the exercise of this Warrant would otherwise have been entitled on such capital reorganization, merger, consolidation or sale. In any such case, appropriate adjustments shall be made in the application of the provisions of this Section 6 (including adjustment of the Exercise Price then in effect and number of Warrant Shares purchasable upon exercise of this Warrant) which shall be applicable after such events.
6.4 Certificate as to Adjustments. Upon the occurrence of each adjustment or readjustment pursuant to Sections 6.1 through 6.3, the Company at its expense shall promptly compute such adjustment or readjustment in accordance with the terms hereof and furnish to each Holder of this Warrant a certificate setting forth such adjustment or readjustment and showing in detail the facts upon which such adjustment or readjustment is based. The Company shall promptly furnish or cause to be furnished to such Holder a like certificate setting forth: (i) such adjustments and readjustments; and (ii) the number of shares and the amount, if any, of other property which at the time would be received upon the exercise of the Warrant.
6.5 Certain Events. If any event occurs as to which the other provisions of Sections 6.1 through 6.3 are not strictly applicable but the lack of any adjustment would not fairly protect the purchase rights of the Holder under this Warrant in accordance with the basic intent and principles of such provisions, or if strictly applicable would not fairly protect the purchase rights of the Holder under this Warrant in accordance with the basic intent and principles of such provisions, then the Company’s Board of Directors will, in good faith, make an appropriate adjustment to protect the rights of the Holder; provided, that no such adjustment pursuant to Sections 6.1 through 6.3 will increase the Exercise Price or decrease the number of Warrant Shares except as expressly set forth in Sections 6.1 through 6.3.
7. Transfer to Comply with the Securities Act. This Warrant has not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, (the “Securities Act”) and has been issued to the Holder for investment and not with a view to the distribution of either this Warrant or the Warrant Shares. Neither this Warrant nor any of the Warrant Shares or any other security issued or upon exercise of this Warrant may be sold, transferred, pledged or hypothecated in the absence of an effective Registration Statement under the Act relating to such security or an opinion of counsel satisfactory to the Company that registration is not required under the Act and that such transfer further complies with applicable securities laws and transfer restrictions. Each certificate for this Warrant, the Warrant Shares and any other security issued or issuable upon exercise of this Warrant shall contain a legend in form and substance satisfactory to counsel for the Company, setting forth the restrictions on transfer contained in this Section.
8. No Stock Rights and Legend.
No holder of this Warrant, as such, shall be entitled to vote or be deemed the holder of any other securities of the Company that may at any time be issuable on the exercise hereof, nor shall anything contained herein be construed to confer upon the holder of this Warrant, as such, the rights of a stockholder of the Company or the right to vote for the election of directors or upon any matter submitted to stockholders at any meeting thereof, or give or withhold consent to any corporate action or to receive notice of meetings or other actions affecting stockholders (except as provided herein), or to receive dividends or subscription rights or otherwise (except as provide herein).
Each certificate for Warrant Shares initially issued upon the exercise of this Warrant, and each certificate for Warrant Shares issued to any subsequent transferee of any such certificate, shall be stamped or otherwise imprinted with a legend in substantially the following form:
“THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “ACT”), OR ANY STATE SECURITIES LAWS, AND NEITHER SUCH SECURITIES NOR ANY INTEREST THEREIN MAY BE OFFERED, SOLD, PLEDGED, ASSIGNED OR OTHERWISE TRANSFERRED UNLESS (1) A REGISTRATION STATEMENT WITH RESPECT THERETO IS EFFECTIVE UNDER THE ACT AND ANY APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS, OR (2) AN EXEMPTION FROM SUCH REGISTRATION EXISTS AND THE COMPANY RECEIVES AN OPINION OF COUNSEL TO THE HOLDER OF SUCH SECURITIES, WHICH COUNSEL AND OPINION ARE REASONABLY SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY, THAT SUCH SECURITIES MAY BE OFFERED, SOLD, PLEDGED, ASSIGNED OR TRANSFERRED IN THE MANNER CONTEMPLATED WITHOUT AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT UNDER THE ACT OR APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS.”
