THIS WARRANT AGENT AGREEMENT (this “Warrant Agent Agreement”) dated as of April 4, 2019 (the “Issuance Date”), by and between Verb Technology Company, Inc., a company incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada (the “Company”), and VStock Transfer, LLC (the “Warrant Agent”). All capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Warrants (as defined below).
WHEREAS, pursuant to the terms of that certain Underwriting Agreement dated April 4, 2019 (the “Underwriting Agreement”), by and between the Company and A.G.P. / Alliance Global Partners, as representatives of the underwriters set forth therein (the “Underwriters”), the Company is engaged in a public offering (the “Offering”) of (A) up to 7,348,242 units (the “Units”) consisting of an aggregate of (i) 7,348,242 shares (the “Shares”) of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”), of the Company and (ii) 7,348,242 warrants (the “Investor Warrants”) to purchase shares of Common Stock (the “Investor Warrant Shares”), which includes the Units, the Shares, the Investor Warrants, and the Investor Warrant Shares issuable pursuant to the underwriters’ over-allotment option, and (B) a warrant (the “Underwriters’ Warrant”; and, together with the Investor Warrants, the “Warrants”) to purchase shares of Common Stock (the “Underwriters’ Warrant Shares” and, together with the Investor Warrant Shares, the “Warrant Shares”).
WHEREAS, the Company has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) a Registration Statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-226840) (as the same may be amended from time to time, the “Registration Statement”), for the registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), of the Units, the Shares, the Warrants, and the Warrant Shares, and such Registration Statement was declared effective by the Commission on April 4, 2019.
WHEREAS, the Company desires the Warrant Agent to act on behalf of the Company, and the Warrant Agent is willing so to act, in accordance with the terms set forth in this Warrant Agent Agreement in connection with the issuance, registration, transfer, exchange, and exercise of the Warrants.
WHEREAS, the Company desires to provide for the form and provisions of the Warrants, the terms upon which they shall be issued and exercised, and the respective rights, limitation of rights, and immunities of the Company, the Warrant Agent, and the holders of the Warrants.
WHEREAS, all acts and things have been done and performed that are necessary to make the Warrants the valid, binding, and legal obligations of the Company, and to authorize the execution and delivery of this Warrant Agent Agreement.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual agreements herein contained, and for other good and valuable consideration, the adequacy, sufficiency, and receipt of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows:
1. Appointment of the Warrant Agent. The Company hereby appoints the Warrant Agent to act as agent for the Company with respect to the Warrants, and the Warrant Agent hereby accepts such appointment and agrees to perform the same in accordance with the express terms and conditions set forth in this Warrant Agent Agreement (and no implied terms or conditions).
2.1. Form of Warrants. Each Warrant shall be (a) issued in book-entry form or (b) in substantially in the form of Exhibit A attached hereto, with respect to the Investor Warrants, or substantially in the form of Exhibit B, with respect to the Underwriters’ Warrant, the provisions of which are incorporated herein, and signed by, or bear the facsimile or .pdf signature of, the Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, and such other officers of the Company as the Company may designate with written notice to the Warrant Agent (each, an “Authorized Signatory”; and, collectively, the “Authorized Signatories”). In the event the person whose facsimile or .pdf signature has been placed upon any Warrant shall have ceased to serve in the capacity in which such person signed the Warrant before such warrant is issued, it may be issued with the same effect as if he or she had not ceased to be such at the date of issuance. All of the Warrants shall initially be represented by one or more book-entry positions (each, a “Book-Entry Warrant”).
2.2. Issuance and Registration of Warrants.
2.2.1. Warrant Register. The Warrant Agent shall maintain books (the “Warrant Register”) for the registration of the original issuance and the registration of all transfers of the Warrants.
2.2.2. Issuance of Warrants. Upon the initial issuance of the Warrants, the Warrant Agent shall issue and register the Warrants in the names of the respective holders thereof in such denominations and otherwise in accordance with the instructions delivered to the Warrant Agent by the Company. To the extent the Warrants are Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) eligible as of the Issuance Date, all of the Warrants shall be represented by one or more Book-Entry Warrants deposited with DTC and registered in the name of Cede & Co., a nominee of DTC. Ownership of beneficial interests in the Book-Entry Warrants shall be shown on, and the transfer of such ownership shall be effected through, records maintained (i) by DTC or its nominee for each Book-Entry Warrant; (ii) by institutions that have accounts with DTC (such institution, with respect to a Warrant in its account, a “Participant”); or (iii) directly on the book-entry records of the Warrant Agent with respect only to owners of beneficial interests that represent such direct registration. If the Warrants are not DTC Eligible as of the Issuance Date or DTC subsequently ceases to make its book-entry settlement system available for the Warrants, the Company may instruct the Warrant Agent in writing regarding making other arrangements for book-entry settlement within ten (10) days after DTC ceases to make its book-entry settlement available. In the event that the Company does not make alternative arrangements for book-entry settlement within ten (10) days of when the Warrants are not eligible for, or it is no longer necessary to have the Warrants available in, book-entry form, the Warrant Agent shall provide written instructions to DTC to deliver to the Warrant Agent for cancellation of each Book-Entry Warrant, and the Company shall instruct the Warrant Agent to deliver to DTC definitive certificates in physical form evidencing such Warrants in substantially the form annexed hereto as Exhibit A or Exhibit B, as applicable.
2.2.3. Beneficial Owner; Registered Holder. Prior to due presentment for registration of transfer of any Warrant, the Company and the Warrant Agent may deem and treat the person in whose name that Warrant shall be registered on the Warrant Register (the “Registered Holder”) as the absolute owner of such Warrant for purposes of any exercise thereof, and for all other purposes, and neither the Company nor the Warrant Agent shall be affected by any notice to the contrary. Any person in whose name ownership of a beneficial interest in the Warrants evidenced by a Book-Entry Warrant is recorded in the records maintained by DTC or its nominee shall be deemed the “beneficial owner” thereof.
2.2.4. Physical Certificate. Notwithstanding anything contained herein, a Registered Holder or if the Book-Entry Warrants are deposited with DTC, the beneficial owner, has the right, upon written notice to the Warrant Agent (in form and substance reasonably acceptable to the Warrant Agent), to request a physical warrant certificate in substantially the form of Exhibit A or Exhibit B, attached hereto, as applicable, for up to the same number of Warrants as are registered in the name of such Registered Holder or beneficial owner, as applicable, in the records maintained by the Warrant Agent (a “Warrant Certificate”). Such Warrant Certificate shall be dated as of the original Issuance Date and shall be executed by an Authorized Signatory. The Warrant Agent shall deliver the Warrant Certificate to the Registered Holder as promptly as practicable.
3. Exercise of Warrants. Subject to the provisions of the Warrants and this Warrant Agent Agreement, a Warrant may be exercised by the Registered Holder thereof by delivering to the Warrant Agent and to the Company, the notice of exercise, as set forth in the Warrant, duly executed and properly completed, and by paying in full, in lawful money of the United States by wire transfer to the Company (or, if available, pursuant to the cashless exercise feature as set forth in such Warrant, all cashless exercises should be directed to the Company for calculation of the applicable number of Warrant Shares issuable upon such cashless exercise and upon completion of such calculation by the Company, the Company shall provide the Warrant Agent with issuance instructions), the Exercise Price for each full Warrant Share as to which the Warrant is exercised and the issuance of the Warrant Shares by the Warrant Agent as set forth in the applicable Warrant. No ink-original Notice of Exercise is required to be delivered, nor shall any medallion guarantee (or other type of guarantee or notarization) of any Notice of Exercise be required.
4. Concerning the Warrant Agent and Other Matters.
4.1. Payment of Taxes. The Company will, from time to time, promptly pay all taxes and charges that may be imposed upon the Company or the Warrant Agent in respect of the issuance or delivery of Warrant Shares upon the exercise of Warrants, but the Company shall not be required to pay any transfer taxes in respect of the Warrants or such Warrant Shares. The Warrant Agent may refrain from registering any transfer of Warrants or any delivery of any Warrant Shares unless or until the persons requesting the registration or issuance shall have paid to the Warrant Agent for the account of the Company the amount of such tax or charge, if any, or shall have established to the reasonable satisfaction of the Company and the Warrant Agent that such tax or charge, if any, has been paid.
4.2. Resignation, Consolidations, or Merger of the Warrant Agent.
4.2.1. Appointment of Successor Warrant Agent. The Warrant Agent, or any successor to it hereafter appointed, may resign its duties and be discharged from all further duties and liabilities hereunder after giving thirty (30) days’ notice in writing to the Company, or such shorter period of time agreed to by the Company. The Company may terminate the services of the Warrant Agent, or any successor Warrant Agent, after giving thirty (30) days’ notice in writing to the Warrant Agent or successor Warrant Agent, or such shorter period of time as agreed. If the office of the Warrant Agent becomes vacant by resignation, termination, or incapacity to act or otherwise, the Company shall appoint in writing a successor Warrant Agent in place of the Warrant Agent. If the Company shall fail to make such appointment within a period of 30 days after it has been notified in writing of such resignation or incapacity by the Warrant Agent, then the Warrant Agent or any Holder may apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for the appointment of a successor Warrant Agent at the Company’s cost. Pending appointment of a successor to such Warrant Agent, either by the Company or by such a court, the duties of the Warrant Agent shall be carried out by the Company. Any successor Warrant Agent (but not including the immediate predecessor Warrant Agent), whether appointed by the Company or by such court, shall be a person organized and existing under the laws of any state of the United States of America, in good standing, and authorized under such laws to exercise corporate trust powers and subject to supervision or examination by federal or state authority. After appointment, any successor Warrant Agent shall be vested with all the authority, powers, rights, immunities, duties, and obligations of its predecessor Warrant Agent with like effect as if originally named as Warrant Agent hereunder, without any further act or deed, and except for executing and delivering documents as provided in the sentence that follows, the predecessor Warrant Agent shall have no further duties, obligations, responsibilities, or liabilities hereunder, but shall be entitled to all rights that survive the termination of this Warrant Agent Agreement and the resignation or removal of the Warrant Agent, including but not limited to its right to indemnity hereunder. If for any reason it becomes necessary or appropriate or at the request of the Company, the predecessor Warrant Agent shall execute and deliver, at the expense of the Company, an instrument transferring to such successor Warrant Agent all the authority, powers, and rights of such predecessor Warrant Agent hereunder; and upon request of any successor Warrant Agent the Company shall make, execute, acknowledge, and deliver any and all instruments in writing for more fully and effectually vesting in and confirming to such successor Warrant Agent all such authority, powers, rights, immunities, duties, and obligations.
4.2.2. Notice of Successor Warrant Agent. In the event a successor Warrant Agent shall be appointed, the Company shall give notice thereof to the predecessor Warrant Agent and the transfer agent for the Common Stock not later than the effective date of any such appointment.
4.2.3. Merger or Consolidation of Warrant Agent. Any person into which the Warrant Agent may be merged or converted or with which it may be consolidated or any person resulting from any merger, conversion, or consolidation to which the Warrant Agent shall be a party or any person succeeding to the shareowner services business of the Warrant Agent or any successor Warrant Agent shall be the successor Warrant Agent under this Warrant Agent Agreement, without any further act or deed. For purposes of this Warrant Agent Agreement, “person” shall mean any individual, firm, corporation, partnership, limited liability company, joint venture, association, trust, or other entity, and shall include any successor (by merger or otherwise) thereof or thereto
4.3. Fees and Expenses of the Warrant Agent.
4.3.1. Remuneration. Whether or not any Warrants are exercised, for the Warrant Agent’s services as agent for the Company hereunder, the Company shall pay to the Warrant Agent such fees as may be separately agreed between the Company and Warrant Agent and the Warrant Agent’s out-of-pocket expenses in connection with this Warrant Agent Agreement, including, without limitation, the fees and expenses of the Warrant Agent’s counsel and the fees and expenses charged by the Warrant Agent in connection with exercises and transfers of the Warrants. While the Warrant Agent endeavors to maintain out-of-pocket charges (both internal and external) at competitive rates, these charges may not reflect actual out-of-pocket costs, and may include handling charges to cover internal processing and use of the Warrant Agent’s billing systems. All amounts owed by the Company to the Warrant Agent under this Warrant Agent Agreement are due within 30 days of the invoice date. Delinquent payments are subject to a late payment charge of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month, commencing 45 days from the invoice date. The Company agrees to reimburse the Warrant Agent for any attorneys’ fees and any other costs associated with collecting delinquent payments. No provision of this Warrant Agent Agreement shall require the Warrant Agent to expend or risk its own funds or otherwise incur any financial liability in the performance of any of its duties under this Warrant Agent Agreement or in the exercise of its rights.
4.3.2. Further Assurances. The Company agrees to perform, execute, acknowledge, and deliver or cause to be performed, executed, acknowledged, and delivered, all such further and other acts, instruments, and assurances as may reasonably be required by the Warrant Agent for the carrying out or performing of the provisions of this Warrant Agent Agreement.

In addition, the Warrant Agent may require for such purpose, but shall not be obligated to require, the execution of such written settlement by all the Registered Holders and beneficial owners and all other persons that may have an interest in the settlement.
