In order to exercise this Warrant, in whole or in part, Holder shall deliver to the Company at its principal office, (i) a written notice of Holder’s election to exercise its rights, in whole or in part, under this Warrant substantially in the form of Exhibit A, duly executed by Holder (any such notice, a “Notice of Exercise”), which notice shall specify the applicable Number of Shares, (ii) payment of the Aggregate Exercise Price (provided, however, that in the case of payment of all or a portion of the Aggregate Exercise Price pursuant to Section 2.1(c), the direction by Holder to make a “Cashless Exercise” shall serve as accompanying payment for that portion of the Aggregate Exercise Price), and (iii) this Warrant.
(b) This Warrant shall be deemed to have been exercised and such certificate or certificates shall be deemed to have been issued, and Holder or any other Person so designated to be named therein shall be deemed to have become a holder of record of such Company Shares for all purposes, as of the date the Company receives the items in Section 2.1(a)(i)-(iii) above, and all taxes required to be paid by Holder pursuant to Section 2.2 prior to the issuance of such Warrant Shares, if any, have been paid.
(c) Holder shall have the right to pay all or a portion of the Aggregate Exercise Price by making a “Cashless Exercise”, in which case the portion of the Aggregate Exercise Price to be so paid shall be paid by reducing the Number of Shares requested pursuant to the applicable Notice of Exercise, and in such event, the Company shall issue to Holder the number of Company Shares computed using the following formula:
|X = (Y*(A-B))/A|
|X = the number of Company Shares to be issued to Holder;|
|Y = the Number of Shares requested pursuant to the applicable Notice of Exercise;|
|A = the Fair Market Value Price Per Share; and|
|B = the Exercise Price Per Share|
(d) Upon receipt of a Notice of Exercise, surrender of this warrant and payment of the Aggregate Exercise Price, the Company shall, as promptly as practicable, and in any event within five (5) Business Days thereafter, execute (or cause to be executed) and deliver (or cause to be delivered) to the Holder a certificate or certificates representing the Warrant Shares issuable upon such exercise, together with cash in lieu of any fraction of a share, as provided in Section 2.1(f) below. The stock certificate or certificates so delivered shall be, to the extent possible, in such denomination or denominations as the exercising Holder shall reasonably request in the Notice of Exercise and shall be registered in the name of the Holder or, subject to compliance with Section 3.1 below, such other Person’s name as shall be designated in the Notice of Exercise. This Warrant shall be deemed to have been exercised and such certificate or certificates of Warrant Shares shall be deemed to have been issued, and the Holder or any other Person so designated to be named therein shall be deemed to have become a holder of record of such Warrant Shares for all purposes, as of the Exercise Date.
(e) In the event that, at the time of exercise of this Warrant, the Company has engaged a transfer agent (the “Transfer Agent”) to manage the transfer of its Company Shares, then, upon the exercise of this Warrant in whole or in part, the Company shall, at its own cost and expense, take all reasonably necessary action required to enable the Transfer Agent to issue Warrant Shares in the name of the Holder (or its nominee) or such other Person(s) as designated by the Holder and in such denominations to be specified in the applicable Notice of Exercise. The Company represents and warrants that no instructions other than the foregoing instructions will be given to the Transfer Agent.

As to any fraction of a Warrant Share that the Holder would otherwise be entitled to purchase upon such exercise, the Company shall pay to such Holder an amount in cash (by delivery of a certified or official bank check or by wire transfer of immediately available funds) equal to the product of (i) such fraction multiplied by (ii) the Fair Market Value of one Warrant Share on the Exercise Date.
(g) Unless the purchase rights represented by this Warrant shall have expired or shall have been fully exercised, the Company shall, at the time of delivery of the certificate or certificates representing the Warrant Shares being issued in accordance with Section 2.1(d) hereof, deliver to the Holder a new Warrant evidencing the rights of the Holder to purchase the unexpired and unexercised Warrant Shares called for by this Warrant. Such new Warrant shall in all other respects be identical to this Warrant.

The provisions of this Section 4.2(b) shall similarly apply to successive reorganizations, reclassifications, consolidations, mergers, sales or similar transactions. The Company shall not effect any such reorganization, reclassification, consolidation, merger, sale or similar transaction unless, prior to the consummation thereof, the successor Person (if other than the Company) resulting from such reorganization, reclassification, consolidation, merger, sale or similar transaction, shall assume, by written instrument substantially similar in form and substance to this Warrant and satisfactory to the Holder, the obligation to deliver to the Holder such shares of stock, securities or assets which, in accordance with the foregoing provisions, such Holder shall be entitled to receive upon exercise of this Warrant.
(c) Other than Excluded Issuances, in the event the Company shall at any time after the date hereof issue or sell additional Common Stock (“Additional Common Stock”), for consideration per share of Common Stock (“Per Share Consideration”) less than the Fair Market Value and less than the Exercise Price Per Share, then the Exercise Price Per Share shall be reduced, concurrently with such issuance or sale, to a price equal to the Exercise Price Per Share in effect immediately prior to such issuance or sale of Additional Common Stock multiplied by a fraction of which (A) the numerator shall be the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to such issuance or sale, plus the total amount of Additional Common Stock that would have been issued had the issuance or sale been at the Exercise Price in effect immediately prior to such sale or issuance, and of which (B) the denominator shall be the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to such issuance or sale, plus the number of shares of Additional Common Stock issued at the Per Share Consideration (including, in the case of (A) and (B), any shares issuable upon exercise of options or conversion of convertible securities).
(d) Notice of Adjustment to the Holder. Whenever the number of Warrant Shares is adjusted pursuant to any provision of this Section 4, the Company shall promptly deliver to each Holder a notice setting forth the number of Warrant Shares for which this Warrant may be exercised after such adjustment and setting forth a brief statement of the facts requiring such adjustment.

If the Piggyback Registration relates to a registration statement filed by the Company for its own account, the Company may withdraw or delay a Piggyback Registration at any time prior to the time it becomes effective to the same extent that the Company withdraws or delays the related registration for the Company’s own account.
(b) If a Piggyback Registration is initiated as a primary underwritten offering on behalf of the Company and the managing underwriter advises the Company and the Holder (if the Holder has elected to include Warrant Shares in such Piggyback Registration) in writing that in its opinion the number of Company Shares proposed to be included in such registration, including all Registrable Securities and all other Company Shares proposed to be included in such underwritten offering, exceeds the number of Company Shares which can be sold in such offering and/or that the number of Company Shares proposed to be included in any such registration would adversely affect the price per share of the Company Shares to be sold in such offering, the Company shall include in such registration (A) first, the number of Company Shares that the Company proposes to sell; (B) second, the number of Company Shares requested to be included therein by the Holder (and, to the extent that this Warrant has been subdivided, such allocation shall be divided among the Holder and the other holders of Warrant Shares, pro rata based on the number of Warrant Shares requested by them for inclusion in the registration); and (C) third, the number of Company Shares requested to be included therein by holders of Company Shares (other than Warrant Shares held by the Holder).
(c) If a Piggyback Registration is initiated as an underwritten offering on behalf of one or more holders of Company Shares other than Warrant Shares, and the managing underwriter advises the Company in writing that in its opinion the number of Company Shares proposed to be included in such registration, including all Warrant Shares and all other Company Shares proposed to be included in such underwritten offering, exceeds the number of Company Shares which can be sold in such offering and/or that the number of Company Shares proposed to be included in any such registration would adversely affect the price per share of the Company Shares to be sold in such offering, the Company shall include in such registration (i) first, the number of Company Shares requested to be included therein by the Holder (on a fully diluted, as converted basis); and (ii) second, the number of Company Shares requested to be included therein by other holders of Company Shares, allocated among such holders in such manner as they may agree.
(d) If any Piggyback Registration is initiated as a primary underwritten offering on behalf of the Company, the Company shall select the investment banking firm or firms to act as the managing underwriter or underwriters in connection with such offering. The Holder may not participate in any underwritten registration hereunder unless the Holder (x) agrees to sell its Registrable Securities on the basis provided in any underwriting arrangements approved by the Company and (y) completes and executes all indemnities, underwriting agreements and other documents reasonably required under the terms of such underwriting arrangements and this Warrant; provided that (A) if the Holder participates in such registration, it will not be required to make any representations or warranties except those which relate solely to itself and its intended plan of distribution and (B) the liability of the Holder to any underwriter under such underwriting agreement will be limited to liability arising from misstatements in, or omissions from, written information regarding the Holder provided by or on behalf of the Holder for inclusion in the prospectus.
(e) Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the Company shall not be required to include in any registration any of the Registrable Securities owned by the Holder if: (1) the Holder fails to furnish to the Company any information required under applicable federal and state securities laws to be furnished by the Holder in connection with the registration of the Registrable Securities or (2) if such registration involves an underwritten offering, such Registrable Securities are not included in such underwritten offering on the same terms and conditions as shall be applicable to the other securities being sold through underwriters in the registration.
8.3 Registration Procedures. If and whenever the Holder requests that any Warrant Shares be registered pursuant to the provisions of this Warrant, the Company shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to effect the registration and the sale of such Warrant Shares in accordance with the intended method of disposition thereof, and pursuant thereto the Company shall as soon as practicable:
(a) subject to Section 8.2(a), prepare and file with the Commission a Registration Statement registering the resale of such Warrant Shares and use its commercially reasonable efforts to cause such Registration Statement to become effective;
(b) prepare and file with the Commission such amendments, post-effective amendments and supplements to such Registration Statement and the Prospectus used in connection therewith as may be necessary to keep such Registration Statement effective for a period of not less than thirty (30) days, or if earlier, until all of such Warrant Shares have been disposed of and to comply with the provisions of the Securities Act with respect to the disposition of such Warrant Shares in accordance with the intended methods of disposition set forth in such Registration Statement;
(c) at least five (5) Business Days before filing such Registration Statement, Prospectus or amendments or supplements thereto, furnish to counsel of the Holder copies of such documents proposed to be filed, which documents shall be subject to the review and comment of such counsel with respect to the Warrant Shares and information related to the Holder;

(f) use its commercially reasonable efforts to register or qualify such Warrant Shares under such other securities or “blue sky” laws of such jurisdictions as any selling holder requests and do any and all other acts and things which may be reasonably necessary or advisable to enable the Holder to consummate the disposition; provided, that the Company shall not be required to qualify generally to do business, subject itself to general taxation or consent to general service of process in any jurisdiction where it would not otherwise be required to do so but for this Section 8.3(f);
(g) notify the Holder, at any time when a Prospectus relating thereto is required to be delivered under the Securities Act, of the happening of any event as a result of which the Prospectus included in such Registration Statement contains an untrue statement of a material fact or omits any fact necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, and, at the request of any such holder, the Company shall prepare a supplement or amendment to such Prospectus so that, as thereafter delivered to the purchasers of such Warrant Shares, such Prospectus shall not contain an untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any fact necessary to make the statements therein not misleading;
(h) make available for inspection by the Holder, any underwriter participating in any disposition pursuant to such Registration Statement and any attorney, accountant or other agent retained by the Holder or any such underwriter (collectively, the “Inspectors”), all financial and other records, pertinent corporate documents and properties of the Company, and cause the Company’s officers, directors and employees to supply all information reasonably requested by any such Inspector in connection with such Registration Statement;
(i) use its commercially reasonable efforts to cause such Warrant Shares to be listed on each securities exchange on which the Company Shares are then listed;
(j) in connection with an underwritten offering, enter into such customary agreements (including underwriting and lock-up agreements in customary form) and take all such other customary actions as may be reasonably required to expedite or facilitate the disposition of such Warrant Shares (including, without limitation, making appropriate officers of the Company available to participate in “road show” and other customary marketing activities (including one-on-one meetings with prospective purchasers of the Warrant Shares);
(k) otherwise use its commercially reasonable efforts to comply with all applicable rules and regulations of the Commission and make available to its stockholders an earnings statement (in a form that satisfies the provisions of Section 11(a) of the Securities Act and Rule 158 thereunder) no later than thirty (30) days after the end of the 12-month period beginning with the first day of the Company’s first full fiscal quarter after the effective date of such Registration Statement, which earnings statement shall cover said 12-month period, and which requirement will be deemed to be satisfied if the Company timely files complete and accurate information on Forms 10-Q, 10-K and 8-K under the Exchange Act and otherwise complies with Rule 158 under the Securities Act;
(l) furnish to the Holder and each underwriter, if any, with (i) a legal opinion of the Company’s outside counsel, dated the effective date of such Registration Statement (and, if such registration includes an underwritten public offering, dated the date of the closing under the underwriting agreement), in form and substance as is customarily given in opinions of the Company’s counsel to underwriters in underwritten public offerings; and (ii) a “comfort” letter signed by the Company’s independent certified public accountants in form and substance as is customarily given in accountants’ letters to underwriters in underwritten public offerings;
(m) without limiting Section 8.3(f), use its commercially reasonable efforts to cause such Warrant Shares to be registered with or approved by such other governmental agencies or authorities as may be necessary by virtue of the business and operations of the Company to enable the Holder to consummate the disposition of such Warrant Shares in accordance with their intended method of distribution thereof;
(n) notify the Holder promptly of any request by the Commission for the amending or supplementing of such Registration Statement or Prospectus or for additional information;
(o) advise the Holder, promptly after it shall receive notice or obtain knowledge thereof, of the issuance of any stop order by the Commission suspending the effectiveness of such Registration Statement or the initiation or threatening of any proceeding for such purpose and promptly use its commercially reasonable efforts to prevent the issuance of any stop order or to obtain its withdrawal at the earliest possible moment if such stop order should be issued;
(p) otherwise use its commercially reasonable efforts to take all other steps necessary to effect the registration of such Warrant Shares contemplated hereby; and
(q) pay all Registration Expenses with respect to such registration or proposed registration of the Registrable Securities, whether or not a Registration Statement becomes effective or the offering is consummated.
8.4 Indemnification by the Company. To the extent permitted by law, the Company agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Holder, its members, shareholders, partners, officers, directors and agents, and the underwriters and each person, if any, who controls the Holder within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act (the “Holder Parties”) from and against any loss, claim, damage or liability and any action in respect thereof to which the Holder Parties may become subject under the Securities Act or otherwise, to the extent such loss, claim, damage, liability or action arises out of, or is based upon, any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in any registration statement or prospectus relating to the Registrable Securities or any omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading. The indemnity agreement contained in this clause (c) shall not apply to amounts paid in settlement of any such loss, claim, damage or liability (collectively, “Losses”) and any action in respect thereof if such settlement is effected without the consent of the Company (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld), nor shall the Company be liable in any such case (x) for any Losses and any action in respect thereof to the extent that it arises from or is based upon any untrue statement or omission made in such registration statement or prospectus relating to the Registrable Securities, or any such amendment or supplement, in reliance upon and in conformity with written information relating to the Holder furnished expressly for use in connection with such registration by, or on behalf of, the Holder or (y) in the case of a sale directly by the Holder (including a sale of such Registrable Securities through any underwriter retained by the Holder engaging in a distribution solely on behalf of the Holder), such untrue statement or omission was contained in a preliminary prospectus and corrected in a final or amended prospectus or supplement, and if, after the Company had provided written notice to the Holder that such prior prospectus contained such untrue statement or omission and provided a copy of the final or amended prospectus or supplement, the Holder failed to deliver a copy of the final or amended prospectus or supplement at or prior to the confirmation of the sale of the Registrable Securities to the Person asserting any such loss, claim, damage or liability in any case in which such delivery is required by the Securities Act.
8.5 Indemnification by the Holder. The Holder agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Company, its members, shareholders, partners, officers, directors and agents and each person, if any, who controls the Company within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act (the “Company Parties”) from and against any Loss and any action in respect thereof to which the Company Parties may become subject under the Securities Act or otherwise, to the extent such Loss or action arises out of, or is based upon any such untrue statements or omissions made in reliance upon and in conformity with written information related to the Holder furnished in writing by the Holder or on the Holder’s behalf expressly for use in any registration statement or prospectus relating to the Registrable Securities, or any amendment or supplement thereto, or any preliminary prospectus. In no event shall any indemnity obligation under this clause (d) exceed the net proceeds from the offering received by the Holder (after deducting all underwriter’s discounts and commissions and all other expenses paid by the Holder in connection with the registration in question).
9. TAKING OF RECORD; UNIT AND WARRANT TRANSFER BOOKS
In the case of all dividends or other distributions by the Company to the holders of its Company Shares with respect to which any provision of Section 4 refers to the taking of a record of such holders, the Company will in each such case take such a record and will take such record as of the close of business on a Business Day. The Company will not at any time, except upon dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Company, close its unit transfer books or Warrant transfer books so as to result in preventing or delaying the exercise or transfer of any Warrant.
10. LOSS OR MUTILATION
Upon receipt by the Company from Holder of evidence reasonably satisfactory to it of the ownership of and the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of this Warrant and indemnity reasonably satisfactory to it (it being understood that the written agreement of the original Holder shall be sufficient indemnity) and in case of mutilation upon surrender and cancellation hereof, the Company will execute and deliver in lieu hereof a new Warrant of like tenor to Holder; provided, however, that in the case of mutilation, no indemnity shall be required if this Warrant in identifiable form is surrendered to the Company for cancellation.
11. OFFICE OF THE COMPANY
As long as this Warrant remains outstanding, the Company shall maintain an office where the Warrant may be presented for exercise, registration of transfer, division or combination as provided herein.
12. HOLDER NOT DEEMED A STOCKHOLDER; LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
Except as otherwise specifically provided herein, prior to the issuance to the Holder of the Warrant Shares to which the Holder is then entitled to receive upon the due exercise of this Warrant, the Holder shall not be entitled to vote or receive dividends or be deemed the holder of shares of capital stock of the Company for any purpose, nor shall anything contained in this Warrant be construed to confer upon the Holder, as such, any of the rights of a stockholder of the Company or any right to vote, give or withhold consent to any corporate action (whether any reorganization, issue of stock, reclassification of stock, consolidation, merger, conveyance or otherwise), receive notice of meetings, receive dividends or subscription rights, or otherwise
No provision hereof, in the absence of affirmative action by Holder to purchase Company Shares, and no enumeration herein of the rights or privileges of Holder hereof, shall give rise to any liability of Holder for the purchase price of any Company Shares or as a member of the Company, whether such liability is asserted by the Company or by creditors of the Company.
13. CERTAIN AMENDMENTS
The Certificate of Incorporation may not be amended if such amendment would adversely affect any of the rights of Holder under this Warrant or would adversely affect the Warrant Shares in a manner different and disproportionate to the effect on all holders of Company Shares, without the prior written consent of Holder.
14.1 Nonwaiver and Expenses. No course of dealing or any delay or failure to exercise any right hereunder on the part of Holder shall operate as a waiver of such right or otherwise prejudice Holder’s rights, powers or remedies. If the Company fails to comply with any other provision of this Warrant, the Company shall pay to Holder such amounts as shall be sufficient to cover the reasonable and documented out-of-pocket costs and expenses including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees, including those of appellate proceedings, actually incurred by Holder in collecting any amounts due pursuant hereto or in otherwise enforcing any of its rights, powers or remedies hereunder.
