Section 1. Vesting; Exercisability.
(a) The Holder’s right to exercise this Warrant with respect to the Warrant Shares is subject to limitations on exercisability as set forth in this Section 1.
(b) This Warrant and the Holder’s rights hereunder with respect to [●] Warrant Shares (subject to adjustment (i) as set forth in this Warrant, including, without limitation, Section 3 and (ii) as set forth in the Transaction Agreement) will be exercisable from and after the Issue Date.
(c) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Warrant, in no event will the Company issue to the Holder, or the Holder be entitled to acquire on exercise, any Warrant Shares that, after giving effect to such issuance and when added to the number of shares of Common Stock previously issued to the Holder pursuant to this Warrant and any Contingent Consideration Warrant and otherwise Beneficially Owned by the Holder, (i) would subject the Holder to any Gaming Approval under any applicable Gaming Laws (both as defined in the Transaction Agreement) unless and until such approvals have been obtained, (ii) would violate the restrictions contained in Section 4.07 the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (as may be amended from time to time, the “Charter”), or (iii) would violate the restrictions contained in the Company’s Amended and Restated Bylaws (as may be amended from time to time, the “Bylaws”), and, in particular, Section 5.10 (Gaming and Regulatory Matters) (collectively, the “Regulatory Limitation”). For all purposes of this Warrant, the Company will be entitled to conclusively rely upon information furnished to it by the Holder at the Company’s request. To the extent that a Regulatory Limitation prevents the issuance of Warrant Shares hereunder, at the request of the Holder, the Company and the Holder will reasonably cooperate to restructure this Warrant and/or modify the terms hereof (while maintaining the economic terms thereof) in such manner and to take such other actions reasonably necessary to avoid and/or eliminate the Regulatory Limitation in compliance with applicable Law.
(e) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Warrant, any issuance of Warrant Shares that results in the Holder owning shares of Common Stock equal to 5% or more of the outstanding shares of Common Stock or other applicable limitations pursuant to the Charter, Bylaws or Gaming Laws (as defined in the Transaction Agreement) without having obtained all applicable approvals thereunder will be null and void and will not be recognized by the Company unless the governmental approvals under all applicable Charter, Bylaws and Gaming Laws (as defined in the Transaction Agreement) have been obtained.
Section 2. Exercise. (a) Subject to Section 1, exercise of the rights represented by this Warrant with respect to Warrant Shares may be effected, in whole or in part, at any time or times on or after the Issue Date and on or before the Termination Date by delivery to the Company (or such other office or agency of the Company as it may designate by notice in writing to the registered Holder at the address of the Holder appearing on the books of the Company) of a duly completed and executed copy of a notice of exercise substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A (a “Notice of Exercise”). The date on which such delivery will have taken place (or be deemed to have taken place) will be referred to herein as the “Exercise Date”. Within two trading days following the date of exercise as aforesaid, the Holder will deliver the aggregate Exercise Price for the shares specified in the applicable Notice of Exercise, at its option, (i) by wire transfer or cashier’s check drawn on a United States bank or (ii) by cashless exercise as set forth in Section 2(d); provided, however, in the event that the Holder has not delivered such aggregate Exercise Price within two trading days following the date of such exercise as aforesaid, the Company will not be obligated to deliver such Warrant Shares hereunder until such payment is made. No ink-original Notice of Exercise will be required, nor will any medallion guarantee (or
other type of guarantee or notarization) of any Notice of Exercise be required. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the Holder will not be required to physically surrender this Warrant to the Company until the Holder has purchased all of the Warrant Shares available hereunder and the Warrant has been exercised in full, in which case, the Holder will surrender this Warrant to the Company for cancellation within three Business Days after the relevant event will have occurred. Partial exercises of this Warrant resulting in purchases of a portion of the total number of Warrant Shares available hereunder will have the effect of lowering the outstanding number of Warrant Shares purchasable hereunder in an amount equal to the applicable number of Warrant Shares purchased. The Holder and the Company will maintain records showing the number of Warrant Shares purchased and the date of such purchases. The Company will deliver any objection to any Notice of Exercise within two Business Days of receipt of such notice. The Holder, by acceptance of this Warrant, acknowledges and agrees that, by reason of the provisions of this paragraph, following the purchase of a portion of the Warrant Shares hereunder, the number of Warrant Shares available for purchase hereunder at any given time may be less than the amount stated on the face hereof.
(b) Exercise Price. The “Exercise Price” per Warrant Share will be $[●], subject to any adjustment required by Section 3.
(c) Mechanics of Exercise. (i) Delivery of Warrant Shares Upon Exercise. Upon each exercise of this Warrant, the Company will promptly, but in no event later than two trading days after delivery of the applicable Notice of Exercise (subject to delivery by the Holder to the Company of the aggregate Exercise Price payable pursuant to Section 2(b) or pursuant to the cashless exercise provisions of Section 2(d)), instruct the transfer agent for the Common Stock (the “Transfer Agent”) to record the issuance of the Warrant Shares purchased hereunder to the Holder in book-entry form pursuant to the Transfer Agent’s regular procedures. The Warrant Shares will be deemed to have been issued, and the Holder will be deemed to have become a holder of record of such shares for all purposes, as of the Exercise Date with payment to the Company of the Exercise Price having been paid.
(ii) Rescission Rights. If the Company fails to issue or cause to have issued the Warrant Shares pursuant to Section 2(c)(i) within two trading days after delivery of the applicable Notice of Exercise, then the Holder will have the right to rescind such exercise. The right of rescission of the Holder under this Section 2(c)(ii) is subject to delivery by the Holder of the aggregate Exercise Price payable pursuant to Section 2(b) or Section 2(d).
(iii) No Fractional Shares or Scrip. No fractional shares or scrip representing fractional shares will be issued upon the exercise of this Warrant. As to any fraction of a share which the Holder would otherwise be entitled to purchase upon such exercise, the Company will, at its election, either pay a cash adjustment in respect of such final fraction in an amount equal to such fraction multiplied by the Market Price or round up to the next whole share.
(iv) Charges, Taxes and Expenses. Issuance of Warrant Shares will be made without charge to the Holder for any issue, transfer, stamp or other tax or other incidental expense in respect of the issuance of such Warrant Shares, all of which taxes and expenses will be paid by the Company, and such Warrant Shares will be issued in the name of the Holder. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Company will pay all fees required for same-day processing of any Notice of Exercise.
(v) Closing of Books. The Company will not close its stockholder books or records in any manner which prevents the timely exercise of this Warrant pursuant to the terms hereof.
(d) In lieu of paying the aggregate Exercise Price for the Warrant Shares specified in the applicable Notice of Exercise by wire transfer or cashier’s check drawn on a United States bank pursuant to Section 2(a), the Holder may elect to exercise the purchase rights represented by this Warrant by authorizing the Company to withhold and not issue to the Holder, in payment of the Exercise Price thereof, a number of such Warrant Shares equal to (i) the number of Warrant Shares for which the Warrant is being exercised, multiplied by (ii) the Exercise Price, and divided by (iii) the Market Price on the Exercise Date (and such withheld Warrant Shares will no longer be issuable under the Warrant, and the Holder will not have any rights or be entitled to any payment with respect to such withheld Warrant Shares).
Section 3. Certain Adjustments. (a) Stock Dividends, Subdivision, Combinations and Consolidations. If the Company, at any time while this Warrant is outstanding (in whole or in part): (i) pays a stock dividend or makes a distribution on shares of Common Stock (or other class of Capital Stock then issuable upon exercise of this Warrant) in the form of shares of its Common Stock (or other class of Capital Stock then issuable upon exercise of this Warrant), (ii) subdivides outstanding shares of Common Stock (or other class of Capital Stock of the Company then issuable upon exercise of this Warrant) into a larger number of shares, or (iii) combines or consolidates (including, without limitation, by reverse stock split) outstanding shares of Common Stock (or other class of Capital Stock of the Company then issuable upon exercise of this Warrant) into a smaller number of shares, then, in each case, the number of shares of Common Stock (or other class of Capital Stock of the Company issuable upon exercise of this Warrant) issuable after such event upon exercise of this Warrant will be equal to the number of shares of Common Stock (or other class of Capital Stock of the Company then issuable upon exercise of this Warrant) issuable upon exercise of this Warrant prior to such event multiplied by a fraction of which the numerator will be the number of shares of Common Stock (or other class of Capital Stock issuable upon exercise of this Warrant) outstanding immediately after such event and of which the denominator will be the number of shares of Common Stock (or other class of Capital Stock issuable upon exercise of this Warrant) outstanding immediately before such event, and the Exercise Price will be proportionately adjusted such that the aggregate Exercise Price of this Warrant will remain unchanged. Any adjustment made pursuant to this Section 3(a) will become effective immediately after the record date for the determination of stockholders entitled to receive such dividend or distribution and will become effective immediately after the effective date in the case of a subdivision, combination or consolidation.
(b) Reclassifications, Reorganizations, Consolidations and Mergers. In the event of (i) any capital reorganization of the Company, (ii) any reclassification or recapitalization of the stock of the Company (other than (A) a change in par value or from par value to no par value or from no par value to par value or (B) as a result of a stock dividend, subdivision, combination or consolidation of shares as to which Section 3(a) will apply), or (iii) any Change of Control, consolidation or merger of the Company with or into another Person (where the Company is not the surviving corporation or where there is a change in or distribution with respect to the Common Stock or any other class of Capital Stock then issuable upon exercise of this Warrant), this Warrant will, after such reorganization, reclassification, recapitalization, Change of Control, consolidation or merger, be exercisable for the kind and number of shares of stock or other securities or property (“Alternate Consideration”) of the Company or of the successor corporation resulting from such consolidation or surviving such merger, if any (and/or the issuer of the Alternate Consideration, as applicable) to which the holder of the number of shares of Common Stock (or such other class of Capital Stock) underlying this Warrant (at the time of such reorganization, reclassification, recapitalization, consolidation or merger, and subject to the limitations set forth in Sections 1(e) and 1(g), if applicable) would have been entitled upon such reorganization, reclassification, recapitalization, Change of Control, consolidation or merger. In such event, the aggregate Exercise Price otherwise payable for the shares of Common Stock (or such other class of Capital Stock) issuable upon exercise of this Warrant will be allocated among the Alternate Consideration receivable as a result of such reorganization, reclassification, recapitalization, Change of Control, consolidation, or merger in proportion to the respective Fair Market Value of such Alternate Consideration. If and to the extent that the holders of Common Stock (or such other class of Capital Stock) have the right to elect the kind or amount of consideration receivable upon consummation of such reorganization, reclassification, recapitalization, Change of Control, consolidation or merger, then the consideration that the Holder will be entitled to receive upon exercise will be specified by the Holder, which specification will be made by the Holder by the later of (A) ten Business Days after the Holder is provided with a final version of all material information concerning such choice as is provided to the holders of Common Stock (or such other class of Capital Stock) and (B) the last time at which the holders of Common Stock (or such other class of Capital Stock) are permitted to make their specifications known to the Company; provided, however, that if the Holder fails to make any specification within such time period, the Holder’s choice will be deemed to be whatever choice is made by a plurality of all holders of Common Stock (or such other class of Capital Stock) that are not affiliated with the Company (or, in the case of a consolidation or merger, any other party thereto) and affirmatively make an election (or of all such holders if none of them makes an election). From and after any such reorganization, reclassification, recapitalization, Change of Control, consolidation or merger, all references to “Warrant Shares” and similar references herein will be deemed to refer to the Alternate Consideration to which the Holder is entitled pursuant to this Section 3(b). In the event of any Change of Control, consolidation or merger in which the Company is not the continuing or surviving corporation or entity (or is not the issuer of the Alternate Consideration), proper provision will be made so that such continuing or surviving corporation or entity (and/or
the issuer of the Alternate Consideration) will agree to carry out and observe the obligations of the Company under this Warrant such that the provisions of this Section 3 will similarly apply with respect to the Alternate Consideration and similarly apply to successive reorganizations, reclassifications, recapitalizations, Change of Control, consolidations, or mergers.
(c) Participation in Distributions. During such time as this Warrant is outstanding, if the Company declares or makes any cash or non-cash dividend or other distribution of its assets (or rights to acquire its assets) to holders of shares of Common Stock (or other class of Capital Stock then issuable upon exercise of this Warrant), by way of return of capital or otherwise (including, without limitation, any distribution of cash, stock or other securities, property or options by way of a dividend, spin off, reclassification, corporate rearrangement, scheme of arrangement or other similar transaction) other than any dividend or distribution referred to in Section 3(a) or Section 3(b) (a “Distribution”), at any time after the issuance of this Warrant, then, in each such case, the Holder will be entitled to participate in such Distribution to the same extent that the Holder would have participated therein if the Holder had held the number of shares of Common Stock (or other class of Capital Stock then issuable upon exercise of this Warrant) acquirable upon complete exercise of this Warrant immediately before the date of which a record is taken for such Distribution, or, if no such record is taken, the date as of which the record holders of shares of Common Stock (or other class of Capital Stock then issuable upon exercise of this Warrant) are to be determined for the participation in such Distribution, provided, however, to the extent that a Regulatory Limitation prevents the Holder from participating in any non-cash Distribution, then the Holder will not be entitled to participate in such Distribution to such extent and the portion of such Distribution will be held in abeyance for the benefit of the Holder until such time, if ever, as its right thereto would not be subject to a Regulatory Limitation; provided, further, that the Holder is unable to participate in all or any portion of a cash Distribution by reason of a Regulatory Limitation, the number of shares of Common Stock (or other class of Capital Stock) for which this Warrant will be exercisable will be increased by a number of shares equal to (x) the aggregate amount of the cash Distribution that the Holder is unable to participate in by reason of a Regulatory Limitation, divided by (y) the Market Price per share of shares of Common Stock (or other class of Capital Stock), the Exercise Price will be proportionately adjusted such that the aggregate Exercise Price of this Warrant will remain unchanged and such adjustment will become effective immediately after the record date for the determination of stockholders entitled to receive such cash Distribution. To the extent that a Regulatory Limitation prevents the Holder from participating in any Distribution not subject to the foregoing proviso, at the request of the Holder, the Company and the Holder will reasonably cooperate to restructure this Warrant and/or modify the terms hereof (while maintaining the economic terms thereof) in such manner and to take such other actions reasonably necessary to avoid and/or eliminate the Regulatory Limitation and allow the Holder to receive such Distribution.
(d) Calculations. All calculations under this Section 3 will be made to the nearest cent or the nearest 1/100th of a share, as the case may be. For purposes of this Section 3, the number of shares of Common Stock (or such other security as is
then issuable upon exercise of this Warrant) deemed to be issued and outstanding as of a given date will be the sum of the number of shares of Common Stock (or such other security) (excluding treasury shares, if any) issued and outstanding on such date.
(f) Notice to Holder.
(i) Adjustment to Terms of Warrant. Whenever any of the terms of this Warrant are adjusted pursuant to any provision of this Section 3 or any other applicable provision hereof, the Company will promptly send to the Holder a notice signed by a duly authorized officer of the Company and setting forth (x) the Exercise Price, number of Warrant Shares and, if applicable, the kind and amount of Alternate Consideration purchasable hereunder after such adjustment and (y) the facts requiring such adjustment in reasonable detail.
(ii) Notice to Allow Exercise by Holder. If, during the period in which this Warrant is outstanding, (A) the Company declares a dividend (or any other distribution in whatever form) on the Common Stock (or other class of Capital Stock then issuable upon exercise of this Warrant), (B) the Company declares a cash dividend on or a redemption of the Common Stock (or other class of Capital Stock then issuable upon exercise of this Warrant), (C) the Company authorizes the granting to all holders of the Common Stock (or other class of Capital Stock then issuable upon exercise of this Warrant) rights or warrants to subscribe for or purchase any shares of capital stock of any class or of any rights, (D) the approval of any stockholders of the Company will be required in connection with any reclassification of the Common Stock, any consolidation or merger to which the Company is a party, any sale or transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company, or any compulsory share exchange whereby the Common Stock (or other class of Capital Stock then issuable upon exercise of this Warrant) is converted into other securities, cash or property, or (E) the Company authorizes the voluntary or involuntary dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the affairs of the Company, then, in each case, the Company will cause to be mailed to the Holder at its last address as it will appear upon the Warrant Register of the Company, at least 20 calendar days prior to the applicable record or effective date hereinafter specified, a notice stating (x) the date on which a record is to be taken for the purpose of such dividend, distribution, redemption, rights or warrants, or if a record is not to be taken, the date as of which the holders of the Common Stock (or other class of Capital Stock then issuable upon exercise of this Warrant) of record to be entitled to such dividend, distributions, redemption, rights or warrants are to be determined or (y) the date on which such reclassification, Change of Control, consolidation, merger, sale, transfer or share exchange is expected to become effective or close, and the date as of which it is expected that holders of the Common Stock (or other class of Capital Stock then issuable upon exercise of this Warrant) of record will be entitled to exchange their shares of the Common Stock (or other class of Capital Stock then issuable upon exercise of this Warrant) for securities, cash or other property deliverable upon such reclassification, consolidation, merger, sale, transfer or share exchange; provided that the failure to mail such notice or any defect therein or in the mailing thereof will not affect the validity of the corporate action required to be specified in such notice. To the extent that any notice provided hereunder constitutes, or contains, material, non-public information regarding the Company or any of the Subsidiaries, the Company will simultaneously file such notice with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the
“SEC”) pursuant to a Current Report on Form 8-K. The Holder will remain entitled to exercise this Warrant during the period commencing on the date of such notice to the effective date of the event triggering such notice except as may otherwise be expressly set forth herein.
Section 4. Transferability. (a) The Holder may not sell, assign, transfer, pledge or dispose of any portion of this Warrant.
(b) Redemption. The Holder acknowledges and agrees to be bound by the terms of Section 2.9 and Section 8.2 of the Transaction Agreement as if it were a party thereto. Such redemption rights will apply to this Warrant.
Section 5. Miscellaneous. (a) No Rights as Stockholder Until Exercise. Except as expressly set forth herein, this Warrant does not entitle the Holder to any voting rights, dividends or other rights as a stockholder of the Company prior to the exercise hereof as set forth in Section 2(c).
(b) Loss, Theft, Destruction or Mutilation of Warrant. The Company covenants that upon delivery by the Holder to the Company of (i) notice of the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of this Warrant and (ii) in the case of loss, theft or destruction, an indemnity agreement in a form and amount reasonably satisfactory to the Company or, in the case of mutilation, surrender of the mutilated Warrant, the Company will make and deliver a new Warrant of like tenor dated as of the Issue Date.
(c) Saturdays, Sundays, Holidays, Etc. If the last or appointed day for the taking of any action or the expiration of any right required or granted herein will not be a Business Day, then, such action may be taken or such right may be exercised on the next succeeding Business Day.
(d) Authorized Shares. The Company covenants that, during the period this Warrant is exercisable (in whole or in part), it will reserve from its authorized and unissued Common Stock (or other class of Capital Stock then issuable upon exercise of this Warrant) a sufficient number of shares to provide for the issuance of the Warrant Shares upon the exercise of any purchase rights under this Warrant. The Company further covenants that its issuance of this Warrant will constitute full authority to its officers who are charged with the duty of executing stock certificates to execute and issue the necessary Warrant Shares upon the exercise of the purchase rights under this Warrant. The Company will take all such reasonable action as may be necessary to assure that such Warrant Shares may be issued as provided herein without violation of any applicable law or regulation, or of any requirements of any national securities exchange upon which the Common Stock is listed or traded. The Company covenants that all Warrant Shares which may be issued upon the exercise of the purchase rights represented by this Warrant will, upon exercise of the purchase rights represented by this Warrant and full payment for such Warrant Shares in accordance herewith, be duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable, not subject to any preemptive rights and free from all taxes, liens and charges created by the Company in respect of the issue thereof and taxes in respect of
any transfer occurring contemporaneously with such issue.
(e) Governing Law. This Warrant, and all claims or causes of action (whether at law or in equity, in contract or in tort) that may be based upon, arise out of or relate to this Agreement, or the negotiation, execution or performance hereof, or the transactions contemplated in this Agreement, will be governed by and construed in accordance with the domestic substantive or procedural laws of the State of Delaware, including its statutes of limitations, without giving effect to any conflict of laws or other rule (whether of the State of Delaware or any other jurisdiction) that would result in the application of the Laws of a different jurisdiction.
(f) Nonwaiver. No course of dealing or any delay or failure to exercise any right hereunder on the part of Holder will operate as a waiver of such right or otherwise prejudice the Holder’s rights, powers or remedies.
(g) Warrant Register. The Company will register this Warrant upon records to be maintained by the Company for that purpose (the “Warrant Register”) in the name of the record Holder hereof from time to time. Absent manifest error or actual notice to the contrary, the Company may deem and treat the Holder of this Warrant so registered as the absolute owner hereof for the purpose of any exercise hereof or any distribution to the Holder, and for all other purposes.
