Article 3 – Other terms of the Warrants
In compliance with applicable French law:
In the event of a reduction in share capital of the Company due to losses by way of reduction of the number of outstanding shares of the Company, the right of the holder of the Warrants as regards the number of shares to be issued upon exercise of the Warrants shall be reduced accordingly, as if the Warrants holder had been a shareholder of the Company as from the date of issuance of the Warrants.
In the event of a reduction in share capital of the Company due to losses by way of reduction of the par value of the Company’s shares, the subscription price of the shares issued upon exercise of the Warrants shall not change, the issue premium being increased by the amount of the reduction of the par value.
In the event of a reduction in share capital of the Company not related to losses by way of reduction of the par value of the shares, the subscription price of the shares issued upon exercise of the Warrants shall be reduced accordingly.
In the event of a reduction in share capital of the Company not related to losses by way of reduction of the number of shares, the holder of the Warrants, if he exercises the Warrants, shall be entitled to request the repurchase of his shares under the same conditions as if he had been a shareholder of the Company as at the date of the repurchase by the Company of its own shares.
In case of rights issue (in which all shareholders are offered to participate prorata their respective equity stake), the Company will take either or several of the following decisions to preserve the rights of the holder of the Warrants, in accordance with the provisions of Article L. 228-99 of the French Commercial Code:
1. either permit the holder of the Warrants to exercise it immediately to enable the Beneficiary to participate in the rights issue, which will not alter or limit the rights of the Beneficiary to exercise the Warrants under Section 2.1 of this Warrant Agreement; or
2. take any measures which will allow the Beneficiary, should he exercises the Warrants subsequently, to irrevocably subscribe at that time its prorata share of the new issue or obtain a free allotment, or receive cash or goods similar to those distributed in the rights issue, in the same quantities or proportions and under the same conditions as if the Beneficiary already exercised the Warrants and had thus been a shareholder of the Company at the time when those operations took place, or
3. adjust the conditions of subscription initially fixed in order to take account of the impact of the rights issue. In that case, such adjustment will be carried out by applying the method provided for in Article R. 228-91 of French Commercial Code, it being specified that the value of the preferential subscription right as well as the value of the share before detachment of the subscription right shall be determined, if need be, by the board of directors on the basis of the subscription, exchange or sale price per share retained at the time of the last operation occurred on the Company's share capital (share capital increase, contribution in kind, sale of shares, etc.) during the six (6) month-period preceding the said meeting of the board of directors, or, if no such transaction has been carried out during the said period, on the basis of any other financial parameter that appears relevant to the board of directors (and which will be confirmed by the Company's auditor).
The Company is authorized, without requesting the specific consent of the holder of the Warrants, to modify its corporate form and its corporate purpose.
In compliance with the provisions of Article L. 228-98 of the French Commercial Code, the Company cannot amend the rules regarding profit allocation, amortize the share capital and create and issue preferred shares entailing any such modification or amortization without requesting the specific consent of the holder of the Warrants.
Pursuant to Article L. 228-103 of the French Commercial Code, the holders of the Warrants will be gathered in one group, it being specified that the group formed may be a single group also gathering the other holders of share subscription warrants with identical characteristics.
Until the exercise of his/her Warrants (as established by registration in the Company’s shareholders accounts), the Beneficiary shall not, on the sole basis of his holding of the Warrants, be granted any voting right, any right to receive dividends or any other right as a shareholder, except for those he would already benefit from due to its holding of Company’s shares
No provision of this agreement shall be considered as granting the Beneficiary any right to maintain his employment agreement with the Company or any subsidiary or limiting the right for the Company or any subsidiary to terminate or amend such employment contract with the Beneficiary
