Section 1 – Registrant’s Business and Operations

 

ITEM 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

Effective February 14, 2017, we entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement, (the “Purchase Agreement”), by and between an otherwise unaffiliated, accredited investor (the “Purchaser”) and us in connection with our issuance and sale to the Purchaser of shares of our Series A Preferred Stock under the terms and conditions as set forth in the Purchase Agreement (the “Sale”).

 

In connection with the Sale, our Board of Directors (our “Board”) authorized and approved a series of preferred stock to be known as “Series A Convertible Preferred Stock”, for which 1,050,000 shares, $0.0001 par value per share, were authorized and a Certificate of Designations, Preferences and Rights of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, (the “Certificate”), was filed with the Office of the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada (the “State”) to effectuate the authorization. Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the purchase of shares of our Series A Preferred Stock may occur in several tranches (each, a “Tranche”; and, collectively, the “Tranches”). The first Tranche of $300,000 ($315,000 in stated value, represented by 315,000 shares of our Series A Preferred Stock) closed simultaneously with the execution of the Purchase Agreement on February 14, 2017 (the “First Closing”), and each additional Tranche shall close at such times and on such financial terms as may be agreed to by the Purchaser and us.

 

Pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the shares of our Series A Preferred Stock issued in the First Closing are to be redeemed by us in five (5) equal weekly payments (each, a “Redemption Payment”), commencing in approximately 180 days from the First Closing. All but one of the Redemption Payments may be made by us in cash or in shares of our common stock, at our option. One of the Redemption Payments must be made in shares of our common stock. Redemption Payments made using shares of our common stock will be valued based upon a VWAP formula, tied to the then-current quoted price of shares of our common stock, described with greater particularity in the Purchase Agreement.

 

The foregoing does not purport to be a complete description of the rights and obligations of the parties under the Purchase Agreement and the Certificate, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to complete copies of such documents, which are filed as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2, respectively, to this Current Report.

 

Section 2 – Financial Information

 

Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation.

 

The information contained in Item 1.01 “Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement” above with respect to the mandatory redemption of the shares of our Series A Convertible Preferred Stock in the principal amount of $300,000 plus accrued origination fees and dividends is responsive to this Item 2.03 and is incorporated by reference herein.

 

 
 

 

Section 3 – Securities and Trading Markets

 

Item 3.02. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

 

As further described above in Item 1.01, effective February 14, 2017, we issued 315,000 shares of our Series A Preferred Stock to the Purchaser. The Purchaser is an accredited investor (as that term is defined in Regulation D of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and, in issuing securities to the Purchaser, we relied on the exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act provided by Rule 506(b) of Regulation D promulgated thereunder by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) and/or Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act.

 

Section 4 – Matters Related to Accountants and Financial Statements

 

Item 4.01. Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.

 

(a) Dismissal of ANTON & CHIA, LLP as Principal Accountant

 

On February 15, 2017, our Audit Committee of our Board dismissed Anton & Chia, LLP (“A&C”), as our principal independent registered public accounting firm.

 

The reports of A&C on our consolidated financial statements for our fiscal years ended December 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014 did not contain an adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, nor were such reports qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles, except to indicate that there was substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern due to our substantial operating losses, working capital deficiencies and dependence on future capital contributions or financing to fund ongoing operations.

 

During our past two fiscal years ended December 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014 and in the subsequent interim period through February 15, 2017 (the “Relevant Period”), there have been no disagreements, as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) and the related instructions of Regulation S-K, promulgated by the Commission, pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, with A&C on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreement(s), if not resolved to the satisfaction of A&C, would have caused A&C to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement(s) in connection with its report on our financial statements.

 

We provided A&C with a copy of the disclosures in this Current Report prior to filing with the Commission. A copy of A&C’s letter dated February 15, 2017 to the Commission, stating whether it agrees with the statements made in this Current Report, is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this Current Report.

 

(b) Appointment of Weinberg & Company, P.A. as Principal Accountant

 

On February 15, 2017, our Audit Committee appointed Weinberg & Company, P.A. (“Weinberg”), as our principal independent registered public accounting firm to audit our financial statements for our fiscal year ended December 31, 2016.

 

 
 

 

During the Relevant Period, neither we, nor (to our knowledge) anyone acting on our behalf, consulted with Weinberg regarding (i) the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed; (ii) the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the our financial statements; (iii) any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure that was the subject of a disagreement, as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) and the related instructions of Regulation S-K; or (iv) any reportable event, as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.

 

Section 7 – Regulation FD

On February 21, 2017, we issued a press release announcing the Purchase Agreement. The press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report.

The Purchaser, either alone or together with its representatives, has such knowledge, sophistication and experience in business and financial matters so as to be capable of evaluating the merits and risks of the prospective investment in the Securities, and has so evaluated the merits and risks of such investment. The Purchaser is able to bear the economic risk of an investment in the Securities and, at the present time, is able to afford a complete loss of such investment.

 

   21  

 

 

(e)       General Solicitation. The Purchaser is not purchasing the Securities as a result of any advertisement, article, notice or other communication regarding the Securities published in any newspaper, magazine or similar media or broadcast over television or radio or presented at any seminar or any other general solicitation or general advertisement.

 

(f)       Certain Transactions and Confidentiality. Other than consummating the transactions contemplated hereunder, the Purchaser has not directly or indirectly, nor has any Person acting on behalf of or pursuant to any understanding with the Purchaser, executed any purchases or sales, including Short Sales, of the securities of the Company during the period commencing as of the time that the Purchaser first received a term sheet (written or oral) from the Company or any other Person representing the Company setting forth the material terms of the transactions contemplated hereunder and ending immediately prior to the execution hereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the case of a Purchaser that is a multi-managed investment vehicle whereby separate portfolio managers manage separate portions of the Purchaser’s assets and the portfolio managers have no direct knowledge of the investment decisions made by the portfolio managers managing other portions of the Purchaser’s assets, the representation set forth above shall only apply with respect to the portion of assets managed by the portfolio manager that made the investment decision to purchase the Securities covered by this Agreement. Other than to other Persons party to this Agreement, the Purchaser has maintained the confidentiality of all disclosures made to it in connection with this transaction (including the existence and terms of this transaction).

 

The Company acknowledges and agrees that the representations contained in Section 3.2 shall not modify, amend or affect the Purchaser’s right to rely on the Company’s representations and warranties contained in this Agreement or any representations and warranties contained in any other Transaction Document or any other document or instrument executed and/or delivered in connection with this Agreement or the consummation of the transaction contemplated hereby.

 

ARTICLE IV.

OTHER AGREEMENTS OF THE PARTIES

 

4.1       Transfer Restrictions.

 

(a)       The Securities may only be disposed of in compliance with state and federal securities laws. In connection with any transfer of Securities other than pursuant to an effective registration statement or Rule 144, to the Company or to an Affiliate of a Purchaser or in connection with a pledge as contemplated in Section 4.1(b), the Company may require the transferor thereof to provide to the Company an opinion of counsel selected by the transferor and reasonably acceptable to the Company, the form and substance of which opinion shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Company, to the effect that such transfer does not require registration of such transferred Securities under the Securities Act. As a condition of transfer, any such transferee shall agree in writing to be bound by the terms of this Agreement and shall have the rights and obligations of a Purchaser under this Agreement.

 

   22  

 

 

(b)       The Purchaser agrees to the imprinting, so long as is required by this Section 4.1, of a legend on any of the Securities in the following form:

 

[NEITHER] THIS SECURITY [NOR THE SECURITIES INTO WHICH THIS SECURITY IS [CONVERTIBLE] HAS [NOT] BEEN REGISTERED WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION OR THE SECURITIES COMMISSION OF ANY STATE IN RELIANCE UPON AN EXEMPTION FROM REGISTRATION UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “SECURITIES ACT”), AND, ACCORDINGLY, MAY NOT BE OFFERED OR SOLD EXCEPT PURSUANT TO AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OR PURSUANT TO AN AVAILABLE EXEMPTION FROM, OR IN A TRANSACTION NOT SUBJECT TO, THE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS OF THE SECURITIES ACT AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS AS EVIDENCED BY A LEGAL OPINION OF COUNSEL TO THE TRANSFEROR TO SUCH EFFECT, THE SUBSTANCE OF WHICH SHALL BE REASONABLY ACCEPTABLE TO THE COMPANY. THIS SECURITY [AND THE SECURITIES ISSUABLE UPON [REDEMPTION] OF THIS SECURITY] MAY BE PLEDGED IN CONNECTION WITH A BONA FIDE MARGIN ACCOUNT WITH A REGISTERED BROKER-DEALER OR OTHER LOAN WITH A FINANCIAL INSTITUTION THAT IS AN “ACCREDITED INVESTOR” AS DEFINED IN RULE 501(A) UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OR OTHER LOAN SECURED BY SUCH SECURITIES.

 

The Company acknowledges and agrees that the Purchaser may from time to time pledge pursuant to a bona fide margin agreement with a registered broker-dealer or grant a security interest in some or all of the Securities to a financial institution that is an “accredited investor” as defined in Rule 501(a) under the Securities Act and who agrees to be bound by the provisions of this Agreement and, if required under the terms of such arrangement, the Purchaser may transfer pledged or secured Securities to the pledgees or secured parties. Such a pledge or transfer would not be subject to approval of the Company and no legal opinion of legal counsel of the pledgee, secured party or pledgor shall be required in connection therewith. Further, no notice shall be required of such pledge. At the appropriate Purchaser’s expense, the Company will execute and deliver such reasonable documentation as a pledgee or secured party of Securities may reasonably request in connection with a pledge or transfer of the Securities.

 

   23  

 

 

(c)       Certificates evidencing the Underlying Shares. Certificates evidencing the Underlying Shares shall not contain any legend (including the legend set forth in Section 4.1(b) hereof): (a) while a registration statement covering the resale of such security is effective under the Securities Act; (b) following any sale of such Underlying Shares pursuant to Rule 144; (c) if such Underlying Shares are eligible for sale under Rule 144; or (d) if such legend is not required under applicable requirements of the Securities Act (including judicial interpretations and pronouncements issued by the staff of the Commission). The Company shall, upon request of a Purchaser and at the Company’s expense, cause Company Counsel to issue a legal opinion to the Transfer Agent promptly after any of the events described in (a)-(d) in the preceding sentence if required by the Transfer Agent to effect the removal of the legend hereunder (with a copy to the Purchaser and its broker). If all or any portion of a Preferred Share is redeemed for Underlying Shares at a time when there is an effective registration statement to cover the resale of the Underlying Shares, or if such Underlying Shares are actually sold under Rule 144 or if such legend is not otherwise required under applicable requirements of the Securities Act (including judicial interpretations and pronouncements issued by the staff of the Commission), then such Underlying Shares shall be issued free of all legends. The Company agrees that, following the Effective Date or at such time as such legend is no longer required under this Section 4.1(c), it will, no later than two (2) Trading Days following the delivery by the Purchaser to the Company or the Transfer Agent of a certificate representing redemption, issued with a restrictive legend (such third Trading Day, the “Preferred Share Legend Removal Date”), instruct the Transfer Agent to deliver or cause to be delivered to the Purchaser a certificate representing such shares that is free from all restrictive and other legends. The Company may not make any notation on its records or give instructions to the Transfer Agent that enlarge the restrictions on transfer set forth in this Section 4. Certificates for Underlying Shares subject to legend removal hereunder shall be transmitted by the Transfer Agent to the Purchaser by crediting the account of the Purchaser’s prime broker with the Depository Trust Company System as directed by the Purchaser.

 

(d)       In addition to the Purchaser’s other available remedies, the Company shall pay to a Purchaser, in cash, as partial liquidated damages and not as a penalty, $1,000 per Trading Day for each Trading Day after the Preferred Share Legend Removal Date until such certificate is delivered without a legend. Nothing herein shall limit the Purchaser’s right to pursue actual damages for the Company’s failure to deliver certificates representing any Securities as required by the Transaction Documents, and the Purchaser shall have the right to pursue all remedies available to it at law or in equity including, without limitation, a decree of specific performance and/or injunctive relief.

 

4.2       Acknowledgment of Dilution. The Company acknowledges that the issuance of the Securities may result in dilution of the outstanding shares of Common Stock, which dilution may be substantial under certain market conditions. The Company further acknowledges that its obligations under the Transaction Documents, including, without limitation, its obligation to issue the Underlying Shares pursuant to the Transaction Documents, are unconditional and absolute and not subject to any right of set off, counterclaim, delay or reduction, regardless of the effect of any such dilution or any claim the Company may have against any Purchaser and regardless of the dilutive effect that such issuance may have on the ownership of the other stockholders of the Company.

 

   24  

 

 

4.3       Furnishing of Information; Public Information.

 

(a)       The Company covenants to maintain the registration of the Common Stock under Section 12(b) or 12(g) of the Exchange Act and to timely file (or obtain extensions in respect thereof and file within the applicable grace period) all reports required to be filed by the Company after the date hereof pursuant to the Exchange Act even if the Company is not then subject to the reporting requirements of the Exchange Act.

 

(b)       At any time during the period commencing from the six (6)-month anniversary of the date hereof and ending at such time that all of the Securities may be sold without the requirement for the Company to be in compliance with Rule 144(c)(1) and otherwise without restriction or limitation pursuant to Rule 144, if the Company shall fail for any reason to satisfy the current public information requirement under Rule 144(c) (a “Public Information Failure”), then, in addition to the Purchaser’s other available remedies, the Company shall pay to a Purchaser, in cash, as partial liquidated damages and not as a penalty, by reason of any such delay in or reduction of its ability to sell the Securities, an amount in cash equal to two percent (2.0%) of the aggregate Subscription Amount of the Purchaser’s Securities then owned by the Purchaser on the day of a Public Information Failure and on every thirtieth (30th) day (pro-rated for periods totaling less than thirty days) thereafter until the earlier of (a) the date such Public Information Failure is cured and (b) such time that such public information is no longer required for the Purchaser to transfer the Underlying Shares pursuant to Rule 144. The payments to which a Purchaser shall be entitled pursuant to this Section 4.3(b) are referred to herein as “Public Information Failure Payments.” Public Information Failure Payments shall be paid on the earlier of (i) the last day of the calendar month during which such Public Information Failure Payments are incurred and (ii) the third (3rd) Business Day after the event or failure giving rise to the Public Information Failure Payments is cured. In the event the Company fails to make Public Information Failure Payments in a timely manner, such Public Information Failure Payments shall bear interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (prorated for partial months) until paid in full. Nothing herein shall limit the Purchaser’s right to pursue actual damages for the Public Information Failure, and the Purchaser shall have the right to pursue all remedies available to it at law or in equity, including, without limitation, a decree of specific performance and/or injunctive relief.

 

4.4       Integration. The Company shall not sell, offer for sale or solicit offers to buy or otherwise negotiate in respect of any security (as defined in Section 2 of the Securities Act) that would be integrated with the offer or sale of the Securities in a manner that would require the registration under the Securities Act of the sale of the Securities or that would be integrated with the offer or sale of the Securities for purposes of the rules and regulations of any Trading Market such that it would require stockholder approval prior to the closing of such other transaction unless stockholder approval is obtained before the closing of such subsequent transaction.

 

   25  

 

 

4.5       Redemption Procedures. The form of the Redemption Notice included in the Certificate of Designations sets forth the totality of the procedures required of the Purchaser in order to redeem the Preferred Shares for Underlying Shares. Without limiting the preceding sentences, no ink-original Redemption Notice, shall be required, nor shall any medallion guarantee (or other type of guarantee or notarization) of any Redemption Notice form be required in order to redeem the Preferred Shares for Underlying Shares. No additional legal opinion, other information or instructions shall be required of the Purchaser to redeem its Preferred Shares for Underlying Shares. The Company shall honor redemptions of the Preferred Shares and shall deliver Underlying Shares in accordance with the terms, conditions and time periods set forth in the Transaction Documents.

 

4.6       Stockholder Rights Plan. No claim will be made or enforced by the Company or, with the consent of the Company, any other Person, that any Purchaser is an “Acquiring Person” under any control share acquisition, business combination, poison pill (including any distribution under a rights agreement) or similar anti-takeover plan or arrangement in effect or hereafter adopted by the Company, or that any Purchaser could be deemed to trigger the provisions of any such plan or arrangement, by virtue of receiving Securities under the Transaction Documents or under any other agreement between the Company and the Purchaser.

 

4.7       Non-Public Information. Except with respect to the material terms and conditions of the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents, the Company covenants and agrees that neither it, nor any other Person acting on its behalf, will provide any Purchaser or its agents or counsel with any information that the Company believes constitutes material non-public information, unless prior thereto the Purchaser shall have entered into a written agreement with the Company regarding the confidentiality and use of such information. The Company understands and confirms that the Purchaser shall be relying on the foregoing covenant in effecting transactions in securities of the Company.

 

4.8       Use of Proceeds. The Company may use the net proceeds hereunder at its sole and absolute discretion.

4.9       Indemnification of Purchaser. Subject to the provisions of this Section 4.9, the Company will indemnify and hold the Purchaser and its directors, officers, stockholders, members, partners, employees and agents (and any other Persons with a functionally equivalent role of a Person holding such titles notwithstanding a lack of such title or any other title), each Person who controls the Purchaser (within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act and Section 20 of the Exchange Act), and the directors, officers, stockholders, agents, members, partners or employees (and any other Persons with a functionally equivalent role of a Person holding such titles notwithstanding a lack of such title or any other title) of such controlling persons (each, a “Purchaser Party”) harmless from any and all losses, liabilities, obligations, claims, contingencies, damages, costs and expenses, including all judgments, amounts paid in settlements, court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs of investigation that any the Purchaser Party may suffer or incur as a result of or relating to (a) any breach of any of the representations, warranties, covenants or agreements made by the Company in this Agreement or in the other Transaction Documents or (b) any action instituted against the Purchaser Parties in any capacity, or any of them or their respective Affiliates, by any stockholder of the Company who is not an Affiliate of the Purchaser Party, with respect to any of the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents (unless such action is based upon a breach of the Purchaser Party’s representations, warranties or covenants under the Transaction Documents or any agreements or understandings the Purchaser Party may have with any such stockholder or any violations by such Purchaser Party of state or federal securities laws or any conduct by the Purchaser Party which constitutes fraud, gross negligence, willful misconduct or malfeasance). If any action shall be brought against any Purchaser Party in respect of which indemnity may be sought pursuant to this Agreement, the Purchaser Party shall promptly notify the Company in writing, and the Company shall have the right to assume the defense thereof with counsel of its own choosing reasonably acceptable to the Purchaser Party. Any Purchaser Party shall have the right to employ separate counsel in any such action and participate in the defense thereof, but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be at the expense of the Purchaser Party except to the extent that (i) the employment thereof has been specifically authorized by the Company in writing, (ii) the Company has failed after a reasonable period of time to assume such defense and to employ counsel or (iii) in such action there is, in the reasonable opinion of counsel, a material conflict on any material issue between the position of the Company and the position of the Purchaser Party, in which case the Company shall be responsible for the reasonable fees and expenses of no more than one such separate counsel. The Company will not be liable to any Purchaser Party under this Agreement (x) for any settlement by a Purchaser Party effected without the Company’s prior written consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed; or (y) to the extent, but only to the extent that a loss, claim, damage or liability is attributable to any Purchaser Party’s breach of any of the representations, warranties, covenants or agreements made by the Purchaser Party in this Agreement or in the other Transaction Documents. The indemnification required by this Section 4.9 shall be made by periodic payments of the amount thereof during the course of the investigation or defense, as and when bills are received or are incurred. The indemnification contained herein shall be in addition to any cause of action or similar right of any Purchaser Party against the Company or others and any liabilities the Company may be subject to pursuant to law.

 

4.10       Reservation and Listing of Securities.

 

(a)       The Company shall maintain a reserve from its duly authorized shares of Common Stock for issuance pursuant to the Transaction Documents in such amount as may then be required to fulfill its obligations in full under the Transaction Documents.

 

(b)       If, on any date, the number of authorized but unissued (and otherwise unreserved) shares of Common Stock is less than 300% of the Required Minimum on such date, then the Board of Directors shall use commercially reasonable efforts to amend the Company’s certificate or articles of incorporation to increase the number of authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock to at least 300% of the Required Minimum at such time, as soon as possible and in any event not later than the seventy-fifth (75th) day after such date.

The ROFO Notice must be sent Purchaser pursuant to Section 5.4. Such ROFO Notice shall contain the material economic terms that the Company would, in good faith, expect to receive in the market for transactions similar in type to the ROFO Financing being sought (the “Material Economic Terms”). If Purchaser is unwilling or unable to provide such ROFO Financing to the Company within ten (10) Trading Days from Purchaser’s receipt of the ROFO Notice, then the Company may obtain such ROFO Financing from any other Person upon the exact same Material Economic Terms, which such ROFO Financing must be completed within ninety (90) calendar days after the date of the ROFO Notice. If the Company does not receive the ROFO Financing from such Person within ninety (90) calendar days after the date of the respective ROFO Notice, then the Company must again offer the ROFO Financing opportunity to Purchaser as described above, and the process detailed above shall be repeated. Additionally, in the event that the Company proceeds to a ROFO Financing with another Person and then the Material Economic Terms are altered or modified in any way, then the Company must again offer the ROFO Financing opportunity (on such altered or modified Material Economic Terms) to Purchaser as described above, and the process detailed above shall be repeated.

   29  

 

 

4.17       Exchange Transactions. During the period commencing on the date hereof and for so long as any of the Preferred Shares remain outstanding, neither the Company nor any of its affiliates or Subsidiaries, nor any of its or their respective officers, employees, directors, agents or other representatives, will, without the prior written consent of the Purchaser (which consent may be withheld, delayed or conditioned in the Purchaser’s sole discretion), directly or indirectly: (a) solicit, initiate, encourage or accept any other inquiries, proposals or offers from any Person (other than the Purchaser) relating to any exchange of any indebtedness or other securities of, or claim against, the Company or any of its Subsidiaries relying on the exemption provided by Section 3(a)(10) of the Securities Act (any such transaction described in clause (a), an “Exchange Transaction”); (b) enter into, effect, alter, amend, announce or recommend to its stockholders any Exchange Transaction with any Person (other than the Purchaser); or (c) participate in any discussions, conversations, negotiations or other communications with any Person (other than the Purchaser) regarding any Exchange Transaction, or furnish to any Person (other than the Purchaser) any information with respect to any Exchange Transaction, or otherwise cooperate in any way, assist or participate in, facilitate or encourage any effort or attempt by any Person (other than the Purchaser) to seek an Exchange Transaction involving the Company or any of its Subsidiaries.

Salt Lake City, UT 84121

 

Ladies and Gentlemen:

 

bBooth, Inc. a Nevada corporation (the “Company”) and ___________ (the “Investor”) entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) dated February 13, 2017. A copy of the Agreement is attached hereto. You should familiarize yourself with your issuance and delivery obligations, as Transfer Agent, contained therein. The shares to be issued are to be registered in the names of the registered holder of the securities submitted for redemption into shares of the Company’s common stock (“Common Stock”).

 

You are hereby irrevocably authorized and instructed to reserve a sufficient number of shares of Common Stock (at least 9,868,407) shares of Common Stock for the Agreement which should be held in reserve for the Investor as of this date) for issuance upon full redemption in accordance with the terms of the Agreement. All redemptions submitted shall first be issued from authorized or treasury shares of the Company, until such time as there are no remaining authorized or treasury shares of the Company left for issuance. Upon the Company having no remaining authorized or treasury shares to be issued, you shall then issue all remaining shares to effect redemptions from the reserve amount listed in this paragraph. The Investor may from time to time provide you with written notice to increase the number of shares of Common Stock so reserved, without any further action or confirmation of the Company, to such number of shares as equals three times the outstanding __________ balance at the time of the notice divided by the two lowest VWAPs of the prior 10 trading days to the date of the notice. In the event of a reverse stock split the reserve should be equitably adjusted unless instructed by the Investor and the Company.

 

The ability to process a notice of redemption under the Agreement (a “Redemption Notice”) in a timely manner is a material obligation of the Company pursuant to the Agreement. Your firm is hereby irrevocably authorized and instructed to issue shares (“Shares”) of Common Stock of the Company to the Investor without any further action or confirmation by the Company (first from the authorized or treasury shares of the company until there are no remaining authorized or treasury shares available for issuance, and then from the reserve, upon your receipt from the Investor of a Redemption Notice executed by the Investor. The Shares should be issued without any restrictive legend if: (A) the Investor provides you with an opinion of counsel of the Investor, in form, substance and scope customary for opinions of counsel in comparable transactions (and satisfactory to the transfer agent), to the effect that the Shares issued to the Investor pursuant to the Redemption Notice are not “restricted securities” as defined in Rule 144 and should be issued to the Investor without any restrictive legend, provided that the Company is current on its SEC filings and the opinion is dated within 90 days from the date of the issuance or transfer request; and (B) the number of Shares to be issued is less than 4.99% of the total issued common stock of the Company.

 

     
 

 

The Company hereby requests that your firm act immediately, without delay and without the need for any action or confirmation by the Company with respect to the issuance of Common Stock pursuant to any Redemption Notices received from the Investor.

 

The Shares shall not be subject to any stop-transfer restrictions at any time. The Company hereby confirms to you and to the Investor that no instruction other than as contemplated herein will be given to you by the Company with respect to the matters referenced herein. The Company hereby authorizes you, and you shall be obligated, to disregard any contrary instruction received by or on behalf of the Company or any other person purporting to represent the Company.

 

You are hereby authorized and directed to promptly disclose to the Investor, after Investor’s request from time to time, the total number of shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding, the total number of shares of Common Stock in the Float and the total number of shares of Common Stock that are authorized but unissued and unreserved.

 

The Company shall indemnify you and your officers, directors, principals, partners, agents and representatives, and hold each of them harmless from and against any and all loss, liability, damage, claim or expense (including the reasonable fees and disbursements of its attorneys) incurred by or asserted against you or any of them arising out of or in connection the instructions set forth herein, the performance of your duties hereunder and otherwise in respect hereof, including the costs and expenses of defending yourself or themselves against any claim or liability hereunder, except that the Company shall not be liable hereunder as to matters in respect of which it is determined that you have acted with gross negligence or in bad faith (which gross negligence or bad faith must be determined by a final, non-appealable order, judgment, decree or ruling of a court of competent jurisdiction). You shall have no liability to the Company in respect to any action taken or any failure to act in respect of this if such action was taken or omitted to be taken in good faith, and you shall be entitled to rely in this regard on the advice of counsel.

 

     
 

 

The Board of Directors of the Company has approved the foregoing (irrevocable instructions) and does hereby extend the Company’s irrevocable agreement to indemnify your firm for all loss, liability or expense in carrying out the authority and direction herein contained on the terms herein set forth.

 

If the Company’s account is in arrears with the Transfer Agent, the Transfer Agent shall not have any obligation to act upon these instructions; however the Investor shall have the option to cure the outstanding balance with the Transfer Agent. The shares reserved pursuant to this letter shall be assignable by the holder to any third party purchaser, without the need for approval by the company.

 

The Company agrees that in the event that the Transfer Agent resigns as the Company’s transfer agent, or if the Company decides to switch or terminate the current Transfer Agent, the Company shall engage a suitable replacement transfer agent that will agree to serve as transfer agent for the Company and be bound by the terms and conditions of these Irrevocable Instructions within five (5) business days.

 

The Investor is intended to be and is third party beneficiary hereof, and no amendment or modification to the instructions set forth herein may be made without the consent of the Investor.

Form of Legal Opinion

 

February 13, 2017

 

 

 

Re: Purchase Agreement (as defined below)

 

Ladies and Gentlemen:

 

We have acted as counsel to bBooth, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), in connection with the issuance and sale by the Company of 315,000 shares (the “Series A Preferred Shares”) of the Company’s Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, $0.0001 par value (the “Series A Preferred Stock”), which are redeemable in cash or by conversion into shares of the Company’s common stock, $0.0001 par value (the “Common Stock”), and that have such other rights and designations as set forth in the Series A Certificate of Designation (as defined below), for an aggregate subscription amount of $300,000.00, pursuant to the terms of the Securities Purchase Agreement, dated as of the date hereof (the “Purchase Agreement”), by and between the Company and _________ (the “Purchaser”). For purposes of this opinion letter, the term “Securities” shall refer to the Series A Preferred Shares and the shares of Common Stock issuable upon redemption of Series A Preferred Shares pursuant to the Series A Certificate of Designation and the Purchase Agreement.

 

This opinion letter is delivered to you at the request of the Company and pursuant to Section 2.3(a)(ii) of the Purchase Agreement. Capitalized terms used but not defined in this opinion letter shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Purchase Agreement.

 

We express no opinion as to the laws of any jurisdiction other than the respective laws of the State of Nevada and the State of New York and the law of the United States of America, in each case as applicable and in effect on the date hereof (collectively, the “Applicable Laws”). Our opinions are limited to those laws, rules, regulations, and judicial decisions that, in our experience, are normally applicable to transactions of the type contemplated by the Purchase Agreement and that we have deemed necessary to render the opinions contained herein. We have assumed the transactions contemplated by the Purchase Agreement do not violate the public policy of any jurisdiction having a substantial relationship contemplated by the Purchase Agreement, and that no provision of any law of the State of Nevada or of the State of New York applicable to the Purchase Agreement violates the public policy of any other jurisdiction.

 

     
 

 

As used in this opinion letter, the expressions “to our knowledge,” “known to us,” or similar language with reference to matters of fact means that, in the course of our representation of the Company, but without any further independent factual investigation, we find no reason to believe that facts upon which we have based the opinions expressed herein are incorrect. Further, the expressions “to our knowledge,” “known to us,” or similar language with reference to matters of fact refers to the current, actual knowledge of the attorneys at Baker & Hostetler LLP who have acted as counsel to the Company with respect to the subject matter of this opinion letter. Except to the extent expressly set forth herein, we have not undertaken any independent investigation to determine the existence or absence of any fact, and no inference as to our knowledge of the existence or absence of any fact should be drawn from our representation of the Company or the rendering of the opinions set forth below. In delivering this opinion letter, we have not commissioned or conducted any investigation, examination, or inquiry to confirm or determine the existence or absence of any facts; searched any of the books, records, or files of any party or other person; searched any internal file, docket, or other court record or file, public record, or other information collection; or examined or reviewed any communication, instrument, agreement, document, file, financial statement, tax return, minute, record, lien, or other item; nor have we reviewed any other documents, other than the Examined Documents (as defined below) and such other records, documents, certificates, opinions, memoranda, and other instruments as in our judgment are necessary or appropriate to enable us to render the opinions expressed below.

 

In rendering the opinions set forth below, we have relied, as to factual and other matters that affect our opinions, solely on the representations and warranties made in the Purchase Agreement and our examination of the following documents (collectively, the “Examined Documents”):

 

a)       a Certificate of Existence with Status in Good Standing for the Company, from the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada, dated February 8, 2017 (the “Nevada Certificate”);

 

b)       a Certificate of Status for the Company, from the Secretary of State of the State of California, dated February 8, 2017, and an Entity Status Letter for the Company, from the Franchise Tax Board of the State of California, dated February 8, 2017 (together, the “California Certificates”);

 

c)       the Articles of Incorporation of the Company, as amended (the “Company Articles”), and the Bylaws of the Company (the “Company Bylaws”), each as certified by the Secretary of the Company;

 

d)       the Certificate of Designation (the “Series A Certificate of Designation”) filed by the Company with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada on February 13, 2017, as certified by the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada on February 13, 2017, that sets forth certain rights, powers, preferences, and privileges of the Series A Preferred Stock;

 

e)       a copy of the Purchase Agreement;

 

     
 

 

f)       copies of the certificates and documents being delivered by the Company to the Purchaser pursuant to the Purchase Agreement in connection with the issuance and sale of the Series A Preferred Shares to the Purchaser;

 

g)       a copy of the resolutions of the Board of Directors of the Company referred to in paragraph 3 of the Secretary’s Certificate (as defined below);

 

h)       the form of stock certificate representing the Series A Preferred Shares issued to the Purchaser at the First Closing pursuant to the Purchase Agreement;

 

i)       a certificate of the Chief Executive Officer of the Company, attached hereto as Exhibit A (the “CEO’s Certificate”), certifying as to certain matters; and

 

j)       a certificate of the Secretary of the Company, attached hereto as Exhibit B (the “Secretary’s Certificate,” and, together with the CEO’s Certificate, the “Officers’ Certificates”), certifying as to certain matters.

 

Except as expressly stated herein, we have not reviewed any other documents that are referred to in or incorporated by reference into the Purchase Agreement.

 

In addition to the Officers’ Certificates, we have made such inquiries of certain officers of the Company and considered such questions of law as we have deemed necessary for the purpose of rendering the opinions set forth in this opinion letter.

 

Our opinions in paragraph 1, below, as to the existence and good standing of the Company and its requisite corporate power and authority are based solely on the Nevada Certificate. Our opinion in paragraph 1, below, as to the Company being duly qualified to do business and in good standing as a foreign corporation in the State of California is based solely on the California Certificates. We have made no independent investigations as to whether any of the Nevada Certificate or California Certificates is accurate or complete.

 

With respect to questions of fact, we have relied solely upon the Officers’ Certificates.

 

Our opinion in paragraph 3(b), below, is based on a review of those laws, statutes, rules, and regulations that, in our experience, are normally applicable to transactions of the type contemplated by the Purchase Agreement.

 

With respect to our opinion in paragraph 5, below, we have assumed that the Purchaser is acquiring the Series A Preferred Shares with no present intention of distributing or reselling the same or distributing or reselling the underlying shares of Common Stock. In rendering our opinion expressed in paragraph 5, below, we have also relied upon (i) the representations and warranties of the Purchaser contained in the Purchase Agreement, which we have assumed to be true and correct in all respects as of the date hereof, and (ii) the Officers’ Certificates.

 

     
 

 

As to certain matters of fact material to the opinions expressed herein, we have relied on certificates of officers of the Company, including the Officers’ Certificates. We have not independently established the facts so relied on.

 

Opinions.

 

Based on and subject to the foregoing and the assumptions stated in this opinion letter, and subject to the qualifications and limitations stated in this opinion letter, we are of the opinion that as of, and only in respect of, the First Closing:

 

1.       The Company is validly existing and in good standing as a corporation under the laws of the State of Nevada and is duly qualified to do business and in good standing as a foreign corporation in the State of California. The Company has the requisite corporate power and authority under Chapter 86 of the Nevada Revised Statutes (the “Nevada General Corporation Law”), the Company Articles, and the Company Bylaws necessary to conduct the business in which it is currently engaged and to own, lease, and operate its properties.

 

2.       The Company has the requisite corporate power and authority under the Nevada General Corporation Law, the Company Certificate, and the Company Bylaws to execute, deliver, and perform its obligations under the Purchase Agreement. The Purchase Agreement, the issuance of the Series A Preferred Shares to the Purchaser at the First Closing, and the reservation and issuance of shares of Common Stock issuable upon the redemptions of the Series A Preferred Shares therefor have been duly approved by the Board of Directors of the Company. The Securities, when issued and paid for by the Purchaser pursuant to the Purchase Agreement and upon delivery, will be validly issued, fully paid, and non-assessable, assuming, in the case of the shares of Common Stock issuable upon the redemption of the Series A Preferred Shares therefor, they were issued in accordance with the redemption requirements set forth in the Series A Certificate of Designation and the Purchase Agreement and that all of the redemption occurred as of the First Closing.

 

3.       The execution, delivery, and performance of the Purchase Agreement by the Company, and the issuance of the Series A Preferred Shares to the Purchaser at the First Closing (and the shares of Common Stock issuable upon the redemptions thereof, if and as issued in accordance with the redemption requirements set forth in the Series A Certificate of Designation and the Purchase Agreement and assuming that all of the redemptions occurred as of the First Closing), do not, on the date hereof: (a) violate the provisions of the Company Certificate or the Company Bylaws; (b) violate Applicable Law; or (c) to our knowledge, violate any judgment, decree, order, or award of any court binding upon the Company.

 

4.       The Purchase Agreement constitutes the valid and legally binding obligation of the Company and is enforceable against the Company in accordance with its terms.

 

     
 

 

5.       No registration of the Securities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, is required for the issuance and sale of the Securities to the Purchaser pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, assuming (a) the accuracy of the Purchaser’s representations in the Purchase Agreement, (b) the accuracy of the Company’s representations in the Purchase Agreement, and (c) in the case of the shares of Common Stock issuable upon the redemptions of the Series A Preferred Shares therefor, they were issued in accordance with the redemption requirements set forth in the Series A Certificate of Designation and the Purchase Agreement and that all of the redemptions occurred as of the First Closing.

 

6.       Based solely on our reliance upon the Officer’s Certificates, as of the date hereof, (a) the authorized capital stock of the Company consists of 200,000,000 shares of Common Stock and 15,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of which 1,050,000 are designated as “Series A Convertible Preferred Stock” and (b) prior to the First Closing, 93,643,231 shares of Common stock and 0 shares of preferred stock are issued and outstanding, respectively. The issuance of the Securities to the Purchaser pursuant to the Purchase Agreement is not subject to any preemptive or similar rights under (i) the Company Articles or the Company Bylaws or (ii) the Nevada General Corporation Law, assuming (A) the accuracy of the Company’s representations in the Purchase Agreement and (B) in the case of the shares of Common Stock issuable upon the redemptions of the Series A Preferred Shares therefor, they were issued in accordance with the redemption requirements set forth in the Series A Certificate of Designation and the Purchase Agreement and that all of the redemptions occurred as of the First Closing.

 

7.       The form of certificate used to evidence the Series A Preferred Shares issued to the Purchaser at the First Closing pursuant to the Purchase Agreement complies in all material respects with all applicable requirements of the Nevada General Corporation Law, the Company Certificate, and the Company Bylaws and with the requirements of the Trading Market.

 

8.       To our knowledge, no consent, approval, or authorization of, or designation, declaration, or filing with, any governmental authority under Applicable Law, on the part of the Company, or approval of the stockholders of the Company, is required for the valid execution and delivery of the Purchase Agreement as of the First Closing, or the offer, sale, or issuance of the Series A Preferred Shares (and shares of Common Stock issuable upon the redemptions thereof, if and as issued in accordance with the redemption requirements set forth in the Series A Certificate of Designation and the Purchase Agreement and assuming that all of the redemptions occurred as of the First Closing), except (i) the filing of a Form D under the Securities Act, (ii) any notice, form, or report required to be filed pursuant to the Securities Act, the Exchange Act (as defined below), and/or the securities or “Blue Sky” laws of any jurisdiction, (iii) as contemplated by the Purchase Agreement, and (iv) those that have been obtained or made.

 

     
 

 

9.       The Common Stock is registered pursuant to Section 12(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). To our knowledge, since one (1) year preceding the date of the First Closing, the Company has been in compliance in all material respects with the reporting requirements of the Exchange Act Act applicable to it. To our knowledge, since one (1) year preceding the date of the First Closing, the Company has not received any written notice from any Person stating that the Company has not been in compliance with any of the rules and regulations (including the requirements for continued listing) of the Trading Market.

 

10.       The Company is not, and after giving effect to the issuance of the Series A Preferred Shares (and the shares of Common Stock issuable upon the redemptions thereof, if and as issued in accordance with the redemption requirements set forth in the Series A Certificate of Designation and the Purchase Agreement and assuming that all of the redemptions occurred as of the First Closing), and the application of proceeds thereof as described in the Purchase Agreement, will not be, an “investment company” within the meaning of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended.

 

We are not representing the Company in any pending litigation or targeted investigation in which it is a named defendant that challenges the validity or enforceability of, or seeks to enjoin the performance of, the Purchase Agreement.

Furthermore, the validity, binding effect, and enforceability of the Purchase Agreement may be limited or otherwise affected by (i) bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, arrangement, moratorium, fraudulent conveyance, or other similar statutes, rules, regulations, or other laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights and remedies generally, including, without limitation, laws relating to fraudulent transfers or conveyances, preferences, and equitable subordination, (ii) the unavailability of, or limitation on the availability of, a particular right or remedy (whether in a proceeding in equity or at law) because of an equitable principle or a requirement as to commercial reasonableness, conscionability, fair dealing, or good faith and decisions governing, limiting, or affecting the availability of any self-help relief or remedy and any relief or remedy that is equitable or discretionary in nature, and (iii) the unenforceability under certain circumstances under law or court decisions of provisions providing for the indemnification of or contribution to a party with respect to a liability where such indemnification or contribution is contrary to public policy. The remedies of specific enforcement, injunctive relief, or any other equitable remedies are subject to the discretion of the court before which any such proceeding may be brought.

17)       A court may limit the exercise or enforcement of rights or remedies or other provisions of the Purchase Agreement: (a) in the event any default is determined not to be material or if such exercise or enforcement is not reasonably necessary for a creditor’s protection; (b) if the exercise or enforcement thereof under the circumstances would violate an implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing; or (c) in the event that the Purchase Agreement is deemed to alter the rules of civil procedure or evidence, limit or alter a debtor’s right of possession, create and govern a creditor-in-possession status, limit or expand rights of set-off, waive the right to trial by jury, authorize a secured party or a trustee to take discretionary independent actions for the account of or as agent for the debtor, provide for payment of attorneys’ fees by the debtor, or provide for liquidated damages or an increased rate of interest or charges as a penalty for any default.

On various dates during the year ended December 31, 2015, Rory J. Cutaia, the Company’s majority shareholder and Chief Executive Officer, loaned the Company total principal amounts of $1,203,242. The loans were unsecured and all due on demand, bearing interest at 12% per annum. On December 1, 2015, the Company entered into a Secured Convertible Note agreement with Mr. Cutaia whereby all outstanding principal and accrued interest owed to Mr. Cutaia from previous loans amounting to an aggregate total of $1,248,883 and due on demand, was consolidated under a note payable agreement, bearing interest at 12% per annum, and converted from due on demand to due in full on April 1, 2017. In consideration for Mr. Cutaia’s agreement to consolidate the loans and extend the maturity date, the Company granted Mr. Cutaia a senior security interest in substantially all current and future assets of the Company. Per the terms of the agreement, at Mr. Cutaia’s discretion, he may convert up to $374,665 of outstanding principal, plus accrued interest thereon, into shares of common stock at a conversion rate of $0.07 per share.

 

     
 

 

On December 1, 2015, the Company entered into an Unsecured Convertible Note with Mr. Cutaia in the amount of $189,000, bearing interest at 12% per annum, representing a portion of Mr. Cutaia’s unpaid salary for 2015. The note extends the payment terms of Mr. Cutaia’s accrued salary from on-demand to due in full on April 1, 2017. The outstanding principal and accrued interest may be converted at Mr. Cutaia’s discretion into shares of common stock at a conversion rate of $0.07.

 

On December 1, 2015, the Company granted 8,920,593 warrants to Mr. Cutaia and 799,286 warrants to Mr. Psomas as consideration for agreeing to extend the payment terms of their respective note payable balances to a maturity date of April 1, 2017. The warrants are immediately vested and have an exercise price of $0.07 and expire on November 30, 2018. The warrants have been valued using the Black-Scholes valuation model and have an aggregate value of $424,758. The value has been recorded as a discount to the outstanding notes payable - related parties on the accompanying consolidated balance sheet, and is being amortized into interest expense over the extended maturity periods of April 1, 2017. During the three months ended September 30, 2016, the Company recorded amortization of $80,242 of the discount into interest expense. The remaining discount balance as of September 30, 2016 amounted to $159,611.

RESOLVED, that the Board hereby designates the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock and the number of shares constituting such series, and fixes the rights, powers, preferences, privileges and restrictions relating to such series in addition to any set forth in the Articles of Incorporation as follows:

 

TERMS OF SERIES A CONVERTIBLE PREFERRED STOCK

  1  
 

 

3.       Dividends.

 

(a)       From and after April 5, 2017 (the “Initial Issuance Date”), each holder of a Preferred Share (each, a “Holder” and collectively, the “Holders”) shall be entitled to receive dividends (the “Dividends”), which Dividends shall be paid by the Company out of funds legally available therefor, payable, subject to the conditions and other terms hereof, in shares of Common Stock or cash on the Stated Value (as defined below) of such Preferred Share at the Dividend Rate (as defined below), which shall be cumulative and shall continue to accrue whether or not declared and whether or not in any fiscal year there shall be net profits or surplus available for the payment of dividends in such fiscal year. Dividends on the Preferred Shares shall commence accumulating on the Initial Issuance Date and shall be computed on the basis of a 365-day year and actual days elapsed. Dividends shall be payable on the following dates (each, a “Dividend Date”): (1) the first (1st) Dividend Date being April 5, 2017; (ii) the second (2nd) Dividend Date being July 5, 2017; and (iii) and each subsequent Dividend Date shall be solely in connection with and concurrently with Installment Redemption Payments. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, unless otherwise agreed to by the Company and the Holders, the Company shall pay Cash Dividends (as defined below) to the Holders on each of the first (1st) two (2) Dividend Dates.

 

(b)       Dividends shall be payable on each Dividend Date, to the Holders of record of the Preferred Shares on the applicable Dividend Date, in shares of Common Stock (the “Dividend Shares”) so long as there has been no Equity Conditions Failure and so long as the delivery of Dividend Shares would not violate the provisions of Section 4; provided, however, that the Company may, at its option, pay Dividends on any Dividend Date in cash (the “Cash Dividends”) or in a combination of Cash Dividends and, so long as there has been no Equity Conditions Failure, Dividend Shares. The Company shall deliver a written notice (each, a “Dividend Election Notice”) to each Holder two (2) Trading Days prior to each Dividend Date (the date such notice is delivered to all of the Holders, the “Dividend Notice Date”), which notice (1) notifies the then-record Holders that the Company has elected to pay the accrued Dividends as Cash Dividends, Dividend Shares, or as a combination of Dividend Shares and Cash Dividends and, in any event, specifies the amount of the to-be-paid Dividends, if any, as Cash Dividends and the amount of the to-be-paid Dividends, if any, as Dividend Shares and (2) certifies that there has been no Equity Conditions Failure as of such time, if the Company has elected to pay any portion of the to-be-paid Dividends as Dividend Shares. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if no Equity Conditions Failure has occurred as of the Dividend Notice Date but an Equity Conditions Failure occurs at any time prior to the date on which a to-be-paid Dividend Shares are to be issued, (A) the Company shall provide each Holder with a subsequent notice to that effect and (B) unless such Holder waives the Equity Conditions Failure, such to-be-paid Dividends shall be paid as Cash Dividends. Dividends that are to be paid to each Holder in Dividend Shares shall be paid in a number of fully paid and non-assessable shares (rounded to the nearest whole share, with 0.50 or more of a share being rounded up to the nearest whole share and 0.49 or less of a share being rounded down to the nearest whole share) of Common Stock equal to the quotient of (1) the amount of Dividends payable to such Holder on such Dividend Date less any Cash Dividends paid and (2) the lesser of (i) the Redemption Price in effect on the applicable Dividend Date, and (ii) the VWAP on the Trading Day immediately preceding the Dividend Date.

 

  2  
 

 

(c)       When any Dividend Shares are to be paid to any Holder, the Company shall (i) (A) provided that (x) the Company’s transfer agent (the “Transfer Agent”) is participating in the Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) Fast Automated Securities Transfer Program and (y) either a Registration Statement for the resale by the applicable Holder of the Dividend Shares or such Dividend Shares to be so issued are otherwise eligible for resale pursuant to Rule 144 (as defined in the Securities Purchase Agreement), credit such aggregate number of Dividend Shares to which such Holder shall be entitled to such Holder’s or its designee’s balance account with DTC through its Deposit and Withdrawal at Custodian system, or (B) if either of the immediately preceding clauses (x) or (y) is not satisfied, issue and deliver on the applicable Dividend Date, to the address set forth in the register maintained by the Company for such purpose pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement or to such address as specified by such Holder in writing to the Company at least two (2) Business Days prior to the applicable Dividend Date, a certificate, registered in the name of such Holder or its designee, for the number of Dividend Shares to which such Holder shall be entitled and (ii) with respect to each such payment of a Dividend, pay to such Holder, in cash by wire transfer of immediately available funds, the amount of any Cash Dividend. The Company shall pay any and all taxes that may be payable with respect to the issuance and delivery of Dividend Shares.

 

4.       Beneficial Ownership Limitation. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Certificate of Designations, the Company shall not tender an Installment Redemption Payment (including any Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares (as defined below)), any Dividend payment, or any other payment due to Holder, in shares of Common Stock to the extent (but only to the extent) that such Holder or any of its affiliates would beneficially own in excess of 4.99% (the “Maximum Percentage”) of the then-issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock. For purposes of this Section 4, 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 1934 Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder. The provisions of this Section 4 shall be implemented in a manner otherwise in strict conformity with the terms of this Section 4 to correct this Section 4 (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 Section 4 shall apply to a successor holder of Preferred Shares. For any reason at any time, upon the written or oral request of a Holder, the Company shall within one (1) Business Day confirm orally and in writing to such Holder the number of shares of Common Stock then outstanding, including by virtue of any prior redemption or exercise of convertible or exercisable securities into Common Stock, including, without limitation, pursuant to this Certificate of Designations or securities issued pursuant to the other Transaction Documents. By written notice to the Company, any Holder may increase or decrease the Maximum Percentage to any other percentage not in excess of 9.99% specified in such notice; provided that (i) any such increase will not be effective until the sixty-first (61st) day after such notice is delivered to the Company and (ii) any such increase or decrease will apply only to such Holder sending such notice and not to any other Holder.

(i)         Beginning on the earlier of the effectiveness of a Registration Statement and August 13, 2017, and so long as any Preferred Shares are outstanding, with respect to any Holder, the Company shall redeem Sixty-three Thousand Dollars ($63,000) of the outstanding amount of Preferred Shares and any accrued but unpaid Dividends thereon on the first (1st) Business Day of each week (each, an “Installment Redemption Payment”) for five (5) consecutive weeks. Each Installment Redemption Payment shall be made, at the Company’s option (subject to the Company’s compliance with the Equity Conditions (i.e., there is no Equity Conditions Failure)) in (i) cash at a price equal to the product of (A) the applicable Installment Redemption Payment multiplied by (B) the Redemption Premium or (ii) in shares of Common Stock (the “Installment Redemption Shares”) at a price equal to the product of (A) the applicable Installment Redemption Payment multiplied by (B) the Redemption Premium divided by the lesser of (x) the Redemption Price (subject to adjustment for any share dividend, share split, share combination, reclassification or similar transaction that proportionately decreases or increases the Common Stock) or (y) the VWAP during the period commencing five (5) Trading Days prior to the Installment Redemption Payment (the “Installment Redemption Price”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Holder shall have the option to demand payment of one (1) Installment Redemption Payment in shares of Common Stock at price equal to the Installment Redemption Price, in lieu of the receipt of cash; provided, that the Holder shall give the Company at least one (1) week’s notice prior to the applicable Installment Redemption Payment. In the event that the Company elects to not pay an Installment Redemption Payment in cash and the Equity Conditions are not met (i.e., there is an Equity Conditions Failure), then each Holder shall be entitled to the redemption of the applicable Installment Redemption Payment at a price equal to the Triggering Event Redemption Price until such time that the Equity Conditions Failure is cured. For the avoidance of doubt, if Holder defers the receipt of Installment Redemption Shares due to the limitations set forth in Section 4, Holder shall remain entitled to such shares as originally calculated, i.e., any weekly VWAP increase subsequent to the original Installment Redemption Payment shall not decrease the amount of shares due to the Holder. However, if Holder defers the receipt of Installment Redemption Shares due to the limitations set forth in Section 4 and any VWAP for the five (5) consecutive Trading Days subsequent to the original Installment Redemption Date decreases (the “Subsequent Installment Redemption Payment”), then Holder shall receive the Installment Redemption Shares at a price equal to the VWAP during any Subsequent Installment Redemption Payment. Additionally, if Holder defers only a portion of the Installment Redemption Shares due to the limitations set forth in Section 4, then such portion shall be subject to the pricing period of the Subsequent Installment Redemption Payment.

 

  4  
 

 

In the event that the Installment Redemption Price from the immediately prior Installment Redemption Payment is greater than the VWAP for the five (5) consecutive Trading Days following such Installment Redemption Payment (the “Make-Whole VWAP Period”), which shall be calculated in the same manner as the VWAP and which precedes the current Installment Redemption Payment, then the Company shall make one make-whole payment to such Holder in additional shares of Common Stock (“Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares”) to compensate the Holder for the loss of value for the immediately previous Installment Redemption Payment. The number of Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares shall be determined by the quotient of (A) the Installment Redemption Payment (including the Redemption Premium) divided by (B) the VWAP calculated during the Make-Whole VWAP Period (the “Make-Whole VWAP Price”); and then subtracting from such result the number of shares of Common Stock issued in connection with the Installment Redemption Payment. Such Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares shall be delivered to Holder by no later than the next Installment Redemption Payment or, if such Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares relates to the final Installment Redemption Payment, then Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares shall be delivered to Holder by no later than three Trading Days following the last Trading Day of the relevant Make-Whole VWAP Period. For the avoidance of doubt, the Make-Whole VWAP Period for the final Installment Redemption Payment shall be the five (5) consecutive Trading Days following such final Installment Redemption Payment.

 

The Company’s obligations to deliver the Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares shall continue even though a Triggering Event has occurred (for the avoidance of doubt, in such event the Redemption Price that is utilized shall be the Triggering Event Redemption Price in lieu of the Installment Redemption Price). For an example of the issuance of Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares, see Exhibit I attached hereto. For the avoidance of doubt, if Holder defers the receipt of Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares due to the limitations set forth in Section 4, Holder shall remain entitled to the amount of the Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares as originally calculated, i.e., any weekly VWAP increase subsequent to the Make-Whole VWAP Period shall not decrease the amount of Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares due to the Holder. However, if Holder defers the receipt of Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares due to the limitations set forth in Section 4 and any VWAP for the five (5) consecutive Trading Days subsequent to the Make-Whole VWAP Period decreases (the “Subsequent Make-Whole VWAP Period”), then Holder shall receive the Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares at a price equal to the VWAP during any Subsequent Make-Whole Period. Additionally, if Holder defers only a portion of the Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares due to the limitations set forth in Section 4, then such portion shall be subject to the pricing period of the Subsequent Make-Whole VWAP Period. Further, the Holder may demand the receipt of any portion of the Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares prior to the receipt of the next Installment Redemption Payment. In such event, the Company shall deliver a separate Redemption Notice to the Holder with respect to the next Installment Redemption Payment.

 

  5  
 

 

(ii)         On the Business Day immediately prior to each Installment Redemption Payment, the Company shall deliver to each Holder a written notice of each Installment Redemption Payment by facsimile or electronic mail in the form attached hereto as Exhibit II, which shall (A) certify that there has been no Equity Conditions Failure and (B) state the aggregate amount of the Preferred Shares which is being redeemed in such Installment Redemption Payment from such Holder and all of the other Holders of the Preferred Shares pursuant to this Section 5(b). Redemptions made pursuant to this Section 5(b) shall be made in accordance with Section 5(d).

 

(iii)       Pursuant to the limitations set forth in Section 4, each Holder may defer all or any portion of any Installment Redemption Payment (including without limitation, any Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares) and have it be paid simultaneously with any future Installment Redemption Payment(s) or on any other date. For the avoidance of doubt, if a Holder defers all or any portion of any Installment Redemption Payment (including without limitation, any Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares) due to the limitations set forth in Section 4, such deferral alone shall not be deemed a Triggering Event.

 

(c)       Triggering Event Redemptions.

(ii)       Notice of a Triggering Event; Redemption Right. Upon the occurrence of a Triggering Event with respect to the Preferred Shares, the Company shall within one (1) Business Day deliver written notice thereof via facsimile or electronic mail (a “Triggering Event Notice”) to each Holder. At any time after the earlier of a Holder’s receipt of a Triggering Event Notice and such Holder becoming aware of a Triggering Event (such earlier date, the “Triggering Event Right Commencement Date”) and ending (such ending date, the “Triggering Event Right Expiration Date”, and each such period, a “Triggering Event Redemption Right Period”) on the tenth (10th) Trading Day after the earliest of: (w) the date such Triggering Event is cured (the Company shall only have five (5) calendar days to cure any Equity Conditions Failure and ten (10) calendar days to cure any other Triggering Event)); (x) the date such Triggering Event is not cured by the requisite time provided in the immediately preceding clause (w); (y) such Holder’s receipt of a Triggering Event Notice that includes (I) a reasonable description of the applicable Triggering Event, (II) a certification as to whether, in the opinion of the Company, such Triggering Event is capable of being cured and, if applicable, a reasonable description of any existing plans of the Company to cure such Triggering Event and (III) a certification as to the date the Triggering Event occurred and, if cured on or prior to the date of such Triggering Event Notice, the applicable Triggering Event Right Expiration Date; and (z) such Holder becoming aware of a Triggering Event; then, such Holder may require the Company to redeem (regardless of whether such Triggering Event has been cured on or prior to the Triggering Event Right Expiration Date) all or any of the Preferred Shares held by such Holder by delivering written notice thereof (the “Triggering Event Redemption Notice”) to the Company, which Triggering Event Redemption Notice shall indicate the number of the Preferred Shares such Holder is electing to redeem. For the avoidance of doubt, neither the Company’s failure to timely deliver a Triggering Event Notice nor a Holder’ failure to become aware of a Triggering Event shall effect the date of occurrence of the Triggering Event (e.g., if a Triggering Event occurred on April 15, 2017, and neither the Company provided the relevant Triggering Event Notice on the next (1) Business Day nor a Holder’s failure to become aware of such Triggering Event by April 16, 2017, such Triggering Event shall still be deemed to occur on April 15, 2017). Each of the Preferred Shares subject to redemption by the Company pursuant to this Section 5(c) shall be redeemed by the Company, at the Company’s option, for shares of Common Stock or cash at a price equal to the product of (A) the Redemption Amount to be redeemed multiplied by (B) one hundred thirty-five percent (135%) (the “Triggering Event Redemption Premium”; the product of the Redemption Amount and the Triggering Event Redemption Premium shall be referred to herein as the “Triggering Event Redemption Amount”)). In the event that the Company elects to pay the Triggering Event Redemption Amount in shares of Common Stock, the Company shall issue the shares of Common Stock at a price equal to average of the two (2) lowest VWAP during the period commencing ten (10) Trading Days prior to the to the date (the “Triggering Event Payment Date”) of payment of such Trigger Event Redemption Amount (the “Triggering Event Redemption Price”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Company fails to cure a Triggering Event by the period prescribed in clause (w) above and has yet to pay the Triggering Event Redemption Amount in cash or shares of Common Stock to Holder, then the Holder shall determine whether such Triggering Event Redemption Amount will be made in cash or in shares of Common Stock. For the avoidance of doubt, if any Holders are requesting redemptions of the Triggering Event Redemption Amount at the Triggering Event Redemption Price but there is an Equity Conditions Failure, the Company shall pay the Triggering Event Redemption Amount in cash unless, Holder waives the Equity Conditions Failure and requests the payment of the Triggering Event Redemption Amount in shares of Common Stock. For the avoidance of doubt, if Holder defers the receipt of any Triggering Event Redemption Amount in shares of Common Stock due to the limitations set forth in Section 4, Holder shall remain entitled to such shares as originally calculated, i.e., any weekly VWAP increase subsequent to the original Triggering Event Payment Date shall not decrease the amount of shares due to the Holder. However, if Holder defers the receipt of any Triggering Event Redemption Amount in shares of Common Stock due to the limitations set forth in Section 4 and any VWAP for the ten (10) consecutive Trading Days subsequent to the original Triggering Event Payment Date decreases (the “Subsequent Triggering Event Payment Date”), then Holder shall receive the Triggering Event Redemption Amount in shares of Common Stock at a price equal to the average of the two (2) lowest VWAP during any Subsequent Triggering Event Payment Date. Additionally, if Holder defers only a portion of the Triggering Event Redemption Amount in shares of Common Stock due to the limitations set forth in Section 4, then such portion shall be subject to the pricing period of the Subsequent Triggering Event Payment Date. In the event the Triggering Event Redemption Amount is paid in shares of Common Stock and such issuance would exceed the limitations contained in Section 4, then the Holder, at its option, may also demand that the balance be paid in cash (subject to the conditions in this Section 5(c)).

 

  10  
 

 

Triggering Redemptions required by this Section 5(c) shall be made in accordance with the provisions of Section 5(d). To the extent redemptions required by this Section 5(c) are deemed or determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be prepayments of the Preferred Shares by the Company; such redemptions shall be deemed to be voluntary prepayments. In the event of the Company’s redemption of any of the Preferred Shares under this Section 5(c), a Holder’s damages would be uncertain and difficult to estimate because of the parties’ inability to predict future interest rates and the uncertainty of the availability of a suitable substitute investment opportunity for such Holder. Accordingly, any redemption premium (including without limitation, the Triggering Event Redemption Premium) due under this Section 5(c) is intended by the parties to be, and shall be deemed, a reasonable estimate of such Holder’s actual loss of its investment opportunity and not as a penalty. Any redemption upon a Triggering Event shall not constitute an election of remedies by the applicable Holder or any other Holder, and all other rights and remedies of each Holder shall be preserved.

 

(iii)       Triggering Event Redemption Make-Whole Shares. In the event that the Triggering Event Redemption Price is greater than the VWAP for the ten (10) consecutive Trading Days following the Triggering Event Payment Date (the “Triggering Event Make-Whole VWAP Period”), which shall be calculated in the same manner as the VWAP, then the Company shall make one make-whole payment to such Holder in additional shares of Common Stock (“Triggering Event Redemption Make-Whole Shares”) to compensate the Holder for the loss of value of the shares of Common Stock issued in connection with a Triggering Event Redemption Amount. The number of Triggering Event Redemption Make-Whole Shares shall be determined by the quotient of (A) the Triggering Event Redemption Amount divided by (B) the VWAP calculated during the Triggering Event Make-Whole VWAP Period (the “Triggering Event Make-Whole VWAP Price”); and then subtracting from such result the number of shares of Common Stock issued in connection with the Triggering Event Redemption Amount. Such Triggering Event Redemption Make-Whole Shares shall be delivered to Holder by no later than three (3) Trading Days following the last Trading Day of the relevant Triggering Event Make-Whole VWAP Period

 

The Company’s obligations to deliver shares of Common Stock with respect to a Triggering Event Redemption Amount, as well as the Triggering Event Redemption Make-Whole Shares, shall continue even though a Triggering Event continues or another Triggering Event has occurred. For the avoidance of doubt, if Holder defers the receipt of any such shares of Common Stock due to the limitations set forth in Section 4, Holder shall remain entitled to such shares as originally calculated, i.e., any weekly VWAP increase subsequent to the Make-Whole VWAP Period shall not decrease the amount of shares due to the Holder. However, if Holder defers the receipt of Triggering Event Redemption Make-Whole Shares due to the limitations set forth in Section 4 and any VWAP for the ten (10) consecutive Trading Days subsequent to the Triggering Event Make-Whole VWAP Period decreases (the “Subsequent Triggering Event Make-Whole VWAP Period”), then Holder shall receive the Triggering Event Redemption Make-Whole Shares at a price equal to the average of the two (2) lowest VWAP during any Subsequent Triggering Event Make-Whole Period. Additionally, if Holder defers only a portion of the Triggering Event Redemption Make-Whole Shares due to the limitations set forth in Section 4, then such portion shall be subject to the pricing period of the Subsequent Triggering Event Make-Whole VWAP Period. In the event the issuance of the Triggering Event Redemption Make-Whole Shares would exceed the limitations contained in Section 4, then (A) the Holder, at its option, may also demand that the balance be paid in cash (subject to the conditions in this Section 5(c)), and (B) the Holder may demand the receipt of the Triggering Event Redemption Make-Whole Shares prior to the receipt of any shares of Common Stock to be issued in connection with any subsequent Triggering Event Redemption Amount.

 

  11  
 

 

(iv)       Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 5(c), upon a Triggering Event, each Holder shall have the option to redeem all of its Preferred Shares in accordance with this Section 5(c). Additionally, following a Triggering Event (including without limitation an amount due under this Certificate of Designations which is not paid when due), interest shall accrue on the amount due to a Holder at a rate of two percent (2%) per month until such Holder is paid in full (a “Late Charge”). The Holder may also require the Company to deposit all revenues that due it into an account at a bank or financial institution that is subject to a deposit account control agreement in a form reasonably satisfactory to the Holder.

 

(v)       Mandatory Redemption upon Bankruptcy Triggering Event. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, and notwithstanding any redemption that is then required or in process, upon any Bankruptcy Triggering Event, the Company shall immediately redeem, in cash, each of the Preferred Shares then outstanding at the Triggering Event Redemption Premium, without the requirement for any notice or demand or other action by any Holder or any other person or entity, provided that a Holder may, in its sole discretion, waive such right to receive payment upon a Bankruptcy Triggering Event, in whole or in part, and any such waiver shall not affect any other rights of such Holder or any other Holder hereunder, including any other rights in respect of such Bankruptcy Triggering Event, any right to redemption, and any right to payment of such Triggering Event Redemption Amount (in cash or in shares of Common Stock) or any other Redemption Amount (in cash or in shares of Common Stock), as applicable.

 

(vi)       Pursuant to the limitations set forth in Section 4, each Holder may defer all or any portion of any Triggering Event Redemption Amount (including without limitation, any Triggering Event Redemption Make-Whole Shares) and have it be paid simultaneously with any future Installment Redemption Payment(s) or on any other date. For the avoidance of doubt, if a Holder defers all or any portion of any Triggering Event Redemption Amount (including without limitation, any Triggering Event Redemption Make-Whole Shares) due to the limitations set forth in Section 4, such deferral alone shall not be deemed a new Triggering Event.

 

  12  
 

 

(d)       Redemptions.

 

(i)       General. If a Holder has submitted a Triggering Event Redemption Notice in accordance with Section 5(c)(ii), the Company shall deliver the applicable Triggering Event Redemption Amount to such Holder in cash or Common Stock within four (4) Trading Days and three (3) Trading Days, respectively, after the Company’s receipt of such Holder’s Triggering Event Redemption Notice. In the event of a redemption of less than all of the Preferred Shares held by such Holder, the Company shall promptly cause to be issued and delivered to such Holder a new Preferred Certificate (likewise to the procedure set forth in Section 14) representing the number of Preferred Shares which have not been redeemed. In the event that the Company does not pay the applicable Redemption Amount (including the Redemption Premium) or the Triggering Event Redemption Amount to a Holder within the time period required for any reason (except if such payment is prohibited pursuant to the NRS), at any time thereafter and until the Company pays such unpaid Redemption Amount (including the Redemption Premium) or Triggering Event Redemption Amount in full, such Holder shall have the option, in lieu of redemption, to require the Company to promptly return to such Holder all or any of the Preferred Shares that were submitted for redemption and for which the applicable Redemption Amount (including the Redemption Premium) or Triggering Event Redemption Amount has not been paid. Upon the Company’s receipt of such notice, (x) the applicable Redemption Notice shall be null and void with respect to such Preferred Shares and (y) the Company shall immediately return the applicable Preferred Share Certificate(s), or issue a new Preferred Share Certificate(s) (likewise to the procedure set forth in Section 14), to such Holder. A Holder’s delivery of a notice voiding a Redemption Notice and exercise of its rights following such notice shall not affect the Company’s obligations to make any other payments which have accrued prior to the date of such notice with respect to the Preferred Shares subject to such notice, including without limitation, the payment of Late Charges (as defined in Section 5(c)(iv)).

 

(ii)       Redemption by Multiple Holders. Upon the Company’s receipt of a Redemption Notice from any Holder for redemption or repayment as a result of an event or occurrence substantially similar to the events or occurrences described in Section 5(c)(ii), the Company shall immediately, but no later than one (1) Business Day of its receipt thereof, forward to each other Holder by facsimile or electronic mail a copy of such notice. If the Company receives one or more Redemption Notices, during the seven (7) Business Day-period beginning on and including the date which is three (3) Business Days prior to the Company’s receipt of the initial Redemption Notice and ending on and including the date which is three (3) Business Days after the Company’s receipt of the initial Redemption Notice and the Company is unable to redeem all principal, interest and other amounts designated in such initial Redemption Notice and such other Redemption Notices received during such seven (7) Business Day-period, then the Company shall redeem a pro rata amount from each Holder based on the principal amount of the Preferred Shares submitted for redemption pursuant to such Redemption Notices received by the Company during such seven (7) Business Day-period.

 

  13  
 

 

(iii)       Required Redemptions. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Sections 5(c)(ii) or 5(c)(iv), the Company shall have no obligation to comply with such Sections 5(c)(ii) or 5(c)(iv) at any time that (x) the Company does not have surplus as described under the NRS or funds legally available to redeem that number of outstanding Preferred Shares that is then subject to redemption, (y) the Company’s capital is impaired as described under the NRS or (z) the redemption of any Preferred Shares would result in an impairment of the Company’s capital as described under NRS; provided, however that, in the event that the Company does not comply with the provisions of Sections 5(c)(ii) or 5(c)(iv) by virtue of the restrictions in this Section 5(d)(iii), the Company will comply with the provisions of Sections 5(c)(ii) or 5(c)(iv) promptly after such restrictions are no longer applicable.

 

6.       Rights Upon Fundamental Transactions. The Company shall not enter into or be party to a Fundamental Transaction unless (i) the Successor Entity assumes in writing all of the obligations of the Company under this Certificate of Designations and the other Transaction Documents in accordance with the provisions of this Section 6 pursuant to written agreements in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Required Holders and approved by the Required Holders prior to such Fundamental Transaction, including agreements to deliver to each holder of Preferred Shares in exchange for such Preferred Shares a security of the Successor Entity evidenced by a written instrument substantially similar in form and substance to this Certificate of Designations, including, without limitation, having a stated value and dividend rate equal to the stated value and dividend rate of the Preferred Shares held by the Holders and having similar ranking to the Preferred Shares, and reasonably satisfactory to the Required Holders and (ii) the Successor Entity (including its Parent Entity) is a publicly traded corporation whose shares of common stock are quoted on or listed for trading on an Eligible Market. Upon the occurrence of any Fundamental Transaction, the Successor Entity shall succeed to, and be substituted for (so that from and after the date of such Fundamental Transaction, the provisions of this Certificate of Designations and the other Transaction Documents referring to the “Company” shall refer instead to the Successor Entity), and may exercise every right and power of the Company and shall assume all of the obligations of the Company under this Certificate of Designations and the other Transaction Documents with the same effect as if such Successor Entity had been named as the Company herein and therein. In addition to the foregoing, upon consummation of a Fundamental Transaction, the Successor Entity shall deliver to each Holder confirmation that there shall be issued upon redemption of the Preferred Shares at any time after the consummation of such Fundamental Transaction, in lieu of the shares of Common Stock (or other securities, cash, assets or other property (except such items still issuable under Sections 7(a) and 12, which shall continue to be receivable thereafter)) issuable upon the redemption of the Preferred Shares prior to such Fundamental Transaction, such shares of publicly traded common stock (or their equivalent) of the Successor Entity (including its Parent Entity) which each Holder would have been entitled to receive upon the consummation of such Fundamental Transaction had all the Preferred Shares held by each Holder been converted immediately prior to such Fundamental Transaction (without regard to any 4.99% limitations or restrictions set forth in this Certificate of Designations), as adjusted in accordance with the provisions of this Certificate of Designations. The provisions of this Section 6 shall apply similarly and equally to successive Fundamental Transactions and shall be applied without regard to any 4.99% limitations or restrictions set forth in this Certificate of Designations.

7.       Rights Upon Issuance of Purchase Rights and Other Corporate Events.

 

(a)       Purchase Rights. In addition to any adjustments pursuant to Section 8 below, if at any time the Company grants, issues or sells any Options, Convertible Securities or rights to purchase stock, warrants, securities or other property pro rata to the record holders of any class of Common Stock (the “Purchase Rights”), then each Holder will be entitled to acquire, upon the terms applicable to such Purchase Rights, the aggregate Purchase Rights which such Holder could have acquired if such Holder had held the number of shares of Common Stock acquirable upon complete redemption of all the Preferred Shares (without taking into account any 4.99% limitations or restrictions set forth in this Certificate of Designations) held by such Holder immediately before the date on which a record is taken for the grant, issuance or sale of such Purchase Rights, or, if no such record is taken, the date as of which the record holders of Common Stock are to be determined for the grant, issue or sale of such Purchase Rights (provided, however, to the extent that such Holder’s right to participate in any such Purchase Right would result in such Holder exceeding the Maximum Percentage, then such Holder shall not be entitled to participate in such Purchase Right to such extent (or beneficial ownership of such shares of Common Stock as a result of such Purchase Right to such extent) and such Purchase Right to such extent shall be held in abeyance for such Holder until such time, if ever, as its right thereto would not result in such Holder exceeding the Maximum Percentage).

 

(b)       Other Corporate Events. In addition to and not in substitution for any other rights hereunder, prior to the consummation of any Fundamental Transaction pursuant to which holders of shares of Common Stock are entitled to receive securities or other assets with respect to or in exchange for shares of Common Stock (a “Corporate Event”), the Company shall make appropriate provisions to ensure that each Holder will thereafter have the right to receive upon a redemption of all the Preferred Shares held by such Holder (i) in addition to the shares of Common Stock receivable upon such redemption, such securities or other assets to which such Holder would have been entitled with respect to such shares of Common Stock had such shares of Common Stock been held by such Holder upon the consummation of such Corporate Event (without taking into account any limitations or restrictions on the convertibility of the Preferred Shares contained in this Certificate of Designations) or (ii) in lieu of the shares of Common Stock otherwise receivable upon such redemption, such securities or other assets received by the holders of shares of Common Stock in connection with the consummation of such Corporate Event in such amounts as such Holder would have been entitled to receive had the Preferred Shares held by such Holder initially been issued with redemption rights for the form of such consideration (as opposed to shares of Common Stock) at a rate for such consideration commensurate with the Redemption Rate. The provisions of this Section 7 shall apply similarly and equally to successive Corporate Events and shall be applied without regard to any 4.99% limitations or restrictions set forth in this Certificate of Designations.

 

  15  
 

 

8.       Adjustment of Redemption Price upon Subdivision or Combination of Common Stock. Without limiting any provision of Section 7 or Section 12, if the Company at any time on or after the Subscription Date subdivides (by any stock split, stock dividend, recapitalization or otherwise) one or more classes of its outstanding shares of Common Stock into a greater number of shares, the Redemption Price in effect immediately prior to such subdivision will be proportionately reduced. Without limiting any provision of Section 7 or Section 12, if the Company at any time on or after the Subscription Date combines (by combination, reverse stock split or otherwise) one or more classes of its outstanding shares of Common Stock into a smaller number of shares, the Redemption Price in effect immediately prior to such combination will be proportionately increased. Any adjustment pursuant to this Section 8 shall become effective immediately after the effective date of such subdivision or combination. If any event requiring an adjustment under this Section 8 occurs during the period that a Redemption Price is calculated hereunder, then the calculation of such Redemption Price shall be adjusted appropriately to reflect such event.

 

9.       Authorized Shares.

 

(a)       Reservation. No later than the fifth (5th) Trading Day after the Company has filed this Certificate of Designations, the Company shall initially reserve out of its authorized and unissued Common Stock a number of shares of Common Stock equal to the sum of (i) 300% of the Redemption Rate with respect to the Redemption Amount (inclusive of the Redemption Premium) of each Preferred Share as of the Initial Issuance Date (assuming for purposes hereof, that all the Preferred Shares then issued pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement have been issued, such Preferred Shares are convertible at the Redemption Price and without taking into account any 4.99% limitations or restrictions set forth in this Certificate of Designations); (ii) the maximum number of Dividend Shares issuable pursuant to the terms of this Certificate of Designations from the Initial Issuance Date through the third (3rd) anniversary of the Initial Issuance Date (assuming for purposes hereof, that all the Preferred Shares then issued pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement have been issued and without taking into account any limitations on the issuance of securities set forth herein); and (iii) any and all other shares of Common Stock due to each Holder under this Certificate of Designations (including, without limitation, the Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares). So long as any of the Preferred Shares are outstanding, the Company shall take all action necessary to reserve and keep available out of its authorized and unissued shares of Common Stock, solely for the purpose of effecting the redemption of the Preferred Shares, as of any given date, the sum of (i) 300% of the number of shares of Common Stock as shall from time to time be necessary to effect the redemption of all of the Preferred Shares then issued pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement and (ii) the maximum number of Dividend Shares then issued pursuant to the terms of this Certificate of Designations from such date through third (3rd) anniversary of such given date, assuming for purposes hereof, that all the Preferred Shares then issued pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement have been issued and without taking into account any limitations on the issuance of securities set forth herein), provided, that, at no time shall the number of shares of Common Stock so available be less than the number of shares required to be reserved by the previous sentence (without regard to any 4.99% limitations or restrictions set forth in this Certificate of Designations) (the “Required Amount”). The initial number of shares of Common Stock reserved for redemptions of the Preferred Shares and for issuance as Dividend Shares and each increase in the number of shares so reserved shall be allocated pro rata among the Holders based on the number of Preferred Shares held by each Holder on the Initial Issuance Date or increase in the number of reserved shares (as the case may be) (the “Authorized Share Allocation”). In the event a Holder shall sell or otherwise transfer any of such Holder’s Preferred Shares, each transferee shall be allocated a pro rata portion of such Holder’s Authorized Share Allocation. Any shares of Common Stock reserved and allocated to any Person that ceases to hold any Preferred Shares shall be allocated to the remaining Holders of Preferred Shares, pro rata based on the number of Preferred Shares then held by such Holders. Upon the request of any Holder, the Company shall provide to such Holder an update, in writing, with respect to the reserve described in this Section 9(a). For the avoidance of doubt, the Company shall cause the reserve described in this Section 9(a) to be increased accordingly upon the issuance of any Preferred Shares after the date that the initial reserve described above is completed. Additionally, upon any Holder’s reasonable request, the Company shall increase the reserve described in this Section 9(a).

 

  16  
 

 

(b)       Insufficient Authorized Shares. If, notwithstanding Section 9(a) and not in limitation thereof, at any time while any of the Preferred Shares remain outstanding, the Company does not have a sufficient number of authorized and unissued shares of Common Stock to satisfy its obligation to have available for issuance upon redemption of the Preferred Shares at least a number of shares of Common Stock equal to the Required Amount (an “Authorized Share Failure”), then the Company shall immediately take all action necessary to increase the Company’s authorized shares of Common Stock to an amount sufficient to allow the Company to reserve and have available the Required Amount for all of the Preferred Shares then outstanding. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing sentence, as soon as practicable after the date of the occurrence of an Authorized Share Failure, but in no event later than ninety (90) days after the occurrence of such Authorized Share Failure, the Company shall hold a meeting or obtain written consent of its stockholders for the approval of an increase in the number of authorized shares of Common Stock. In connection with such meeting, the Company shall provide each stockholder with a proxy statement or information statement, as applicable, and shall use its best efforts to solicit its stockholders’ approval of such increase in authorized shares of Common Stock and to cause its Board to recommend to the stockholders that they approve such proposal. Nothing contained in this Section 9 shall limit any obligations of the Company under any provision of the Securities Purchase Agreement.

 

(c)       Redemption of all Preferred Shares. Upon the redemption of all Preferred Shares issued under this Certificate of Designations and each Holder’s corresponding receipt of all shares of Common Stock under this Certificate of Designations (including without limitation, the Dividend Shares, the shares of Common Stock with respect to Installment Redemption Payments, and the Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares), each Holder shall release the Company of its obligations under Section 9(a)-(b).

 

10.       Voting Rights. Holders of Preferred Shares shall have no voting rights, except as required by law (including without limitation, the NRS) and as expressly provided in this Certificate of Designations. To the extent that, under the NRS, the vote of the holders of the Preferred Shares, voting separately as a class or series, as applicable, is required to authorize a given action of the Company, the affirmative vote or consent of the holders of all of the Preferred Shares, voting together in the aggregate and not in separate series unless required under the NRS, represented at a duly held meeting at which a quorum is presented or by written consent of all of the Preferred Shares (except as otherwise may be required under the NRS), voting together in the aggregate and not in separate series unless required under the NRS, shall constitute the approval of such action by both the class or the series, as applicable. Subject to Section 4, to the extent that, under the NRS, holders of the Preferred Shares are entitled to vote on a matter with holders of shares of Common Stock, voting together as one class, each Preferred Share shall entitle the holder thereof to cast that number of votes per share as is equal to the number of shares of Common Stock into which it is then convertible (subject to the ownership limitations specified in Section 4 hereof) using the record date for determining the stockholders of the Company eligible to vote on such matters as the date as of which the Redemption Price is calculated. Holders of the Preferred Shares shall be entitled to written notice of all stockholder meetings or written consents (and copies of proxy materials and other information sent to stockholders) with respect to which they would be entitled by vote, which notice would be provided pursuant to the Company’s bylaws and the NRS).

 

11.       Liquidation; Dissolution; Winding-Up. In the event of a Liquidation Event, the Holders shall be entitled to receive in cash out of the assets of the Company, whether from capital or from earnings available for distribution to its stockholders (the “Liquidation Funds”), before any amount shall be paid to the holders of any of shares of Junior Stock, an amount per Preferred Share equal to the greater of (A) 110% of the Redemption Amount thereof on the date of such payment, multiplied by the Redemption Premium and (B) the amount per share such Holder would receive if such Holder converted such Preferred Shares into Common Stock immediately prior to the date of such payment, provided that if the Liquidation Funds are insufficient to pay the full amount due to the Holders and holders of shares of Parity Stock, then each Holder and each holder of Parity Stock shall receive a percentage of the Liquidation Funds equal to the full amount of Liquidation Funds payable to such Holder and such holder of Parity Stock as a liquidation preference, in accordance with their respective certificate of designations (or equivalent), as a percentage of the full amount of Liquidation Funds payable to all holders of Preferred Shares and all holders of shares of Parity Stock. To the extent necessary, the Company shall cause such actions to be taken by each of its Subsidiaries so as to enable, to the maximum extent permitted by law, the proceeds of a Liquidation Event to be distributed to the Holders in accordance with this Section 11. All the preferential amounts to be paid to the Holders under this Section 11 shall be paid or set apart for payment before the payment or setting apart for payment of any amount for, or the distribution of any Liquidation Funds of the Company to the holders of shares of Junior Stock in connection with a Liquidation Event as to which this Section 11 applies.

 

  17  
 

 

12.       Participation. In addition to any adjustments pursuant to Section 8, the Holders shall, as holders of Preferred Shares, be entitled to receive such dividends paid and distributions made to the holders of shares of Common Stock to the same extent as if such Holders had converted each Preferred Share held by each of them into shares of Common Stock (without regard to any 4.99% limitations or restrictions set forth in this Certificate of Designations) and had held such shares of Common Stock on the record date for such dividends and distributions. Payments under the preceding sentence shall be made concurrently with the dividend or distribution to the holders of shares of Common Stock (provided, however, to the extent that a Holder’s right to participate in any such dividend or distribution would result in such Holder exceeding the Maximum Percentage, then such Holder shall not be entitled to participate in such dividend or distribution to such extent (or the beneficial ownership of any such shares of Common Stock as a result of such dividend or distribution to such extent) and such dividend or distribution to such extent shall be held in abeyance for the benefit of such Holder until such time, if ever, as its right thereto would not result in such Holder exceeding the Maximum Percentage).

 

13.       Vote to Change the Terms of or Issue Preferred Shares. In addition to any other rights provided by law, except where the vote or written consent of the holders of a greater number of shares is required by law or by another provision of the Articles of Incorporation, without first obtaining the affirmative vote at a meeting duly called for such purpose or the written consent without a meeting of the Required Holders, voting together as a single class, the Company shall not amend or repeal any provision of, or add any provision to, its Articles of Incorporation or bylaws, or file any certificate of designations or articles of amendment of any series of shares of preferred stock, if such action would adversely alter or change in any respect the preferences, rights, privileges or powers, or restrictions provided for the benefit, of the Preferred Shares, regardless of whether any such action shall be by means of amendment to the Articles of Incorporation or by merger, consolidation or otherwise; provided, however, the Company shall be entitled, without the consent of the Required Holders unless such consent is otherwise required by the NRS, to (a) amend the Articles of Incorporation to effectuate one or more reverse stock splits of its issued and outstanding Common Stock for purposes of maintaining compliance with the rules and regulations of the Principal Market; (b) purchase, repurchase or redeem any shares of capital stock of the Company junior in rank to the Preferred Shares (other than pursuant to equity incentive agreements (that have in good faith been approved by the Board) with employees giving the Company the right to repurchase shares upon the termination of services); or (c) issue any preferred stock that is junior in rank to the Preferred Shares.

 

14.       Lost or Stolen Certificates. Upon receipt by the Company of evidence reasonably satisfactory to the Company of the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of any certificates representing Preferred Shares (as to which a written certification and the indemnification contemplated below shall suffice as such evidence), and, in the case of loss, theft or destruction, of an indemnification undertaking by the applicable Holder to the Company in customary and reasonable form and, in the case of mutilation, upon surrender and cancellation of the certificate(s), the Company shall execute and deliver new certificate(s) of like tenor and date.

 

  18  
 

 

15.       Remedies; Characterizations; Other Obligations; Breaches and Injunctive Relief. The remedies provided in this Certificate of Designations shall be cumulative and in addition to all other remedies available under this Certificate of Designations and any of the other Transaction Documents, at law or in equity (including a decree of specific performance and/or other injunctive relief), and no remedy contained herein shall be deemed a waiver of compliance with the provisions giving rise to such remedy. Nothing herein shall limit any Holder’s right to pursue actual and consequential damages for any failure by the Company to comply with the terms of this Certificate of Designations. The Company covenants to each Holder that there shall be no characterization concerning this instrument other than as expressly provided herein. Amounts set forth or provided for herein with respect to payments, redemptions and the like (and the computation thereof) shall be the amounts to be received by a Holder and shall not, except as expressly provided herein, be subject to any other obligation of the Company (or the performance thereof). The Company acknowledges that a breach by it of its obligations hereunder will cause irreparable harm to the Holders and that the remedy at law for any such breach may be inadequate. The Company therefore agrees that, in the event of any such breach or threatened breach, each Holder shall be entitled, in addition to all other available remedies, to an injunction restraining any such breach or any such threatened breach, without the necessity of showing economic loss and without any bond or other security being required, to the extent permitted by applicable law. The Company shall provide all information and documentation to a Holder that is requested by such Holder to enable such Holder to confirm the Company’s compliance with the terms and conditions of this Certificate of Designations.

 

16.       Noncircumvention. The Company hereby covenants and agrees that the Company will not, by amendment of its Articles of Incorporation, bylaws or through any reorganization, transfer of assets, consolidation, merger, scheme of arrangement, dissolution, issue or sale of securities, or any other voluntary action, avoid or seek to avoid the observance or performance of any of the terms of this Certificate of Designations, and will at all times in good faith carry out all the provisions of this Certificate of Designations and take all action as may be required to protect the rights of the Holders. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing or any other provision of this Certificate of Designations, the Company (i) shall not increase the par value of any shares of Common Stock receivable upon the redemption of any Preferred Shares above the Redemption Price then in effect, (ii) shall take all such actions as may be necessary or appropriate in order that the Company may validly and legally issue fully paid and non-assessable shares of Common Stock upon the redemption of Preferred Shares and (iii) shall, so long as any Preferred Shares are outstanding, take all action necessary to reserve and keep available out of its authorized and unissued shares of Common Stock, solely for the purpose of effecting the redemption of the Preferred Shares, the maximum number of shares of Common Stock as shall from time to time be necessary to effect the redemption of the Preferred Shares then outstanding (without regard to any 4.99% limitations or restrictions set forth in this Certificate of Designations).

 

  19  
 

 

17.       Failure or Indulgence Not Waiver. No failure or delay on the part of a Holder in the exercise of any power, right or privilege hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such power, right or privilege preclude other or further exercise thereof or of any other right, power or privilege. No waiver shall be effective unless it is in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the waiving party. This Certificate of Designations shall be deemed to be jointly drafted by the Company and all Holders and shall not be construed against any Person as the drafter hereof.

 

18.       Notices. The Company shall provide each Holder of Preferred Shares with prompt written notice of all actions taken pursuant to the terms of this Certificate of Designations, including in reasonable detail a description of such action and the reason therefor. Whenever notice is required to be given under this Certificate of Designations, unless otherwise provided herein, such notice must be in writing and shall be given in accordance with Section 5.4 of the Securities Purchase Agreement. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Company shall give written notice to each Holder (i) promptly following any adjustment of the Redemption Price, setting forth in reasonable detail, and certifying, the calculation of such adjustment and (ii) at least fifteen (15) days prior to the date on which the Company closes its books or takes a record (A) with respect to any dividend or distribution upon the Common Stock, (B) with respect to any grant, issuances, or sales of any Options, Convertible Securities or rights to purchase stock, warrants, securities or other property to all holders of shares of Common Stock as a class or (C) for determining rights to vote with respect to any Fundamental Transaction, dissolution or liquidation, provided, in each case, that such information shall be made known to the public prior to, or simultaneously with, such notice being provided to any Holder.

 

19.       Transfer of Preferred Shares. Subject to the restrictions set forth in the Securities Purchase Agreement, a Holder may transfer some or all of its Preferred Shares without the consent of the Company.

 

20.       Preferred Shares Register. The Company shall maintain at its principal executive offices (or such other office or agency of the Company as it may designate by notice to the Holders), a register for the Preferred Shares, in which the Company shall record the name, address and facsimile number of the Persons in whose name the Preferred Shares have been issued, as well as the name and address of each transferee. The Company may treat the Person in whose name any Preferred Shares is registered on the register as the owner and holder thereof for all purposes, notwithstanding any notice to the contrary, but in all events recognizing any properly made transfers.

 

21.       Stockholder Matters; Amendment.

 

(a)       Stockholder Matters. Any stockholder action, approval or consent required, desired or otherwise sought by the Company pursuant to the NRS, the Articles of Incorporation, this Certificate of Designations or otherwise with respect to the issuance of Preferred Shares may be effected by written consent of the Company’s stockholders or at a duly called meeting of the Company’s stockholders, all in accordance with the applicable rules and regulations of the NRS. This provision is intended to comply with the applicable sections of the NRS permitting stockholder action, approval and consent affected by written consent in lieu of a meeting.

EXHIBIT I

 

EXAMPLE OF ISSUANCE OF

INSTALLMENT REDEMPTION PRICE MAKE-WHOLE SHARES*

 

On the Installment Redemption Payment of Monday October 3, Holder is entitled to receive an installment of $78,750 (i.e., the Installment Redemption Payment multiplied by the Redemption Premium). The Company will pay Holder in shares of Common Stock at the five (5) day- VWAP of the immediately prior five (5) Business Days to such date (i.e., Monday September 26 through Friday September 30), which is $0.15. Holder is issued 525,000 shares of Common Stock on Monday October 3.

 

The VWAP for the five (5) consecutive Business Days subsequent to September 30 (i.e., Monday October 3 through Friday October 7), is $0.13, which is less than $0.15. Accordingly, Holder is entitled to receive Installment Redemption Price Make-Wholes Shares.

 

The amount of shares issued shall be $78,750 divided by $0.13 (the five (5) day-VWAP during the period of the five (5) consecutive Business Days following September 30, (i.e., Monday October 3 through Friday October 7)) minus the original 525,000 shares of Common Stock. The result is that Holder is entitled to receive 80,770 Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares on Monday October 10.

 

For the avoidance of doubt, in the event that Holder elects to defer the receipt of the 80,770 Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares (due to the 4.99% limitations) to a future Installment Redemption Payment, any weekly VWAP increase shall not effect Holder’s right to the 80,770 Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares. For example, Holder elects to receive the 80,770 Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares on October 31 instead of on October 10; but the average VWAP for the week of October 10 through October 14 is $0.16, the average VWAP for the week of October 17 through October 11 is $0.17, and the average VWAP for the week of October 24 through October 28 is $0.18, the Holder shall still be entitled to receive 80,770 Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares based on the five (5) day- VWAP for the week of Monday October 3 through Friday October 7 (i.e., $0.13). However, in the event that Holder elects to defer the receipt of the 80,770 Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares (due to the 4.99% limitations) to a future Installment Redemption Payment and any VWAP for the five (5) consecutive Trading Days subsequent to the Make-Whole VWAP Period decreases (i.e., the Subsequent Make-Whole VWAP Period), then Holder shall receive the Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares at a price equal to the VWAP during any Subsequent Make-Whole Period. For example, Holder elects to receive the 80,770 Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares on October 31 instead of on October 10; but the average VWAP for the week of October 10 through October 14 is $0.12, then Holder shall still be entitled to receive 131,250 Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares based on the Subsequent Make-Whole VWAP Period (i.e., the five (5) day-VWAP for the week of Monday October 10 through Friday October 4).

 

  32  
 

 

In the event that the Company must pay the Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares in cash, such Holder would receive a cash payment equal to $10,500.10 (i.e., the product of 80,770 Installment Redemption Price Make-Whole Shares and $0.13). The Holder is entitled to receive $10,500.10 on Monday October 10.**

 

 

 

* The above example is strictly a hypothetical example and, as such, the stock prices listed above are not the actual stock prices of the Company on the applicable dates.

 

**This portion of the example assumes that the Subsequent Make-Whole VWAP Period is inapplicable.
