|Item 1.01||Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.|
Private Placement of Common Stock
On June 9, 2023, Genelux Corporation (the “Company”) entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with certain investors (the “Purchasers”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to sell and issue 900,000 shares of the Company’s common stock (“Common Stock”) in a private placement transaction (the “Private Placement”). The purchase price per share of Common Stock is $20.00 per share. The initial closing of the Private Placement is expected to occur on or before June 20, 2023 (the “Initial Closing”), subject to customary closing conditions. The total gross proceeds to the Company from the Private Placement are expected to be approximately $18.0 million. One of the Purchasers will, and is contractually obligated to, fund up to $12.5 million of such Purchaser’s investment amounts following the Initial Closing but no later than November 15, 2023.
Under the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Company has agreed to prepare and file, within 30 days after the Initial Closing (the “Filing Deadline”), one or more registration statements with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) to register for resale the Common Stock issued under the Purchase Agreement on or before July 31, 2023, and to cause the applicable registration statements to become effective within a specified period after the Filing Deadline.
The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants that were made solely for the benefit of the parties to the Purchase Agreement. Such representations, warranties and covenants (i) are intended as a way of allocating risk between the parties to the Purchase Agreement and not as statements of fact, and (ii) may apply standards of materiality in a way that is different from what may be viewed as material by stockholders of, or other investors in, the Company. Accordingly, the Purchase Agreement is included with this filing only to provide investors with information regarding the terms of transaction and not to provide investors with any other factual information regarding the Company. Investors should not rely on the representations, warranties and covenants or any descriptions thereof as characterizations of the actual state of facts or condition of the Company or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the representations and warranties may change after the date of the Purchase Agreement, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in public disclosures.
The foregoing is only a summary of the terms of the Purchase Agreement, does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Purchase Agreement, a copy of which is attached to this report as Exhibit 10.1.
|Item 3.02||Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.|
The disclosure regarding the securities to be sold and issued under the Purchase Agreement as set forth under Item 1.01 of this report is incorporated by reference under this Item 3.02.
The securities described above under Item 1.01 have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The Company relied on the exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act by virtue of Section 4(a)(2) thereof and Rule 506 of Regulation D thereunder. Each of the Purchasers has represented that it is an “accredited investor” as defined in Regulation D of the Securities Act and that it is acquiring the securities for investment only and not with a view towards, or for resale in connection with, the public sale or distribution thereof, and appropriate legends will be affixed to the securities.

SECURITIES PURCHASE AGREEMENT
This Securities Purchase Agreement (this “Agreement”), dated as of June 9, 2023, is made by and among Genelux Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), and the Purchasers listed on the signature pages hereto, together with their permitted transferees (each, a “Purchaser” and collectively, the “Purchasers”).
A. The Company and the Purchasers are executing and delivering this Agreement in reliance upon the exemption from securities registration afforded by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and/or Rule 506(b) of Regulation D (“Regulation D”) as promulgated by the SEC under the Securities Act.
B. The Purchasers, severally, and not jointly, desire to purchase from the Company, and the Company desires to sell to the Purchasers, upon the terms and conditions stated in this Agreement, shares (the “Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (“Common Stock”) having an aggregate purchase price of up to $18,000,000.00, as more fully described in this Agreement.
C. The capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined have the meanings given them in Article 7.
In consideration of the premises and the mutual covenants contained herein and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the Company and the Purchasers (severally and not jointly) hereby agree as follows:
PURCHASE AND SALE
(a) Purchase and Sale. At the closing of the transaction contemplated by this Agreement (the “Closing”), the Company will sell and issue to each Purchaser, and each Purchaser will, severally and not jointly, purchase from the Company, the number of Shares equal to (x) the dollar amount set forth under such Purchaser’s name on such Purchaser’s signature page hereto under the heading “Subscription Amount” divided by (y) the Market Price, rounded down to the nearest whole share; provided, however, in the event the number of Shares resulting from the foregoing calculation would result in such Purchaser, together with its Attribution Parties, beneficially owning in excess of such Purchaser’s Beneficial Ownership Limitation of the outstanding Common Stock immediately after the Closing, then the number of Shares otherwise issuable to such Purchaser at the Closing will be reduced by the number (such number, the “Overage Number”) of Shares that would result in such Purchaser beneficially owning, together with its Attribution Parties, no more than the Beneficial Ownership Limitation of the outstanding Common Stock immediately after the Closing.
(b) Payment. At the Closing, each Purchaser will pay to an account designated by the Company, by wire transfer of immediately available funds, the amount set forth under its name on such Purchaser’s signature page hereto under the heading “Subscription Amount”. The Company will (i) instruct its transfer agent to credit each Purchaser the number of Shares purchased by the Purchaser pursuant to Section 1.1 hereof and (ii) on the Closing Date (defined below) deliver written notice from the Company or its transfer agent evidencing the issuance to the Purchaser of the Shares on and as of the Closing Date.
(c) Closing Date. The Closing will take place as soon as reasonably practicable after the date hereof but no later than June 20, 2023 (the date on which the Closing actually occurs, the “Closing Date”) and the Closing will be held remotely via the exchange of documents and signatures, or at such other time and place as determined by the Company. Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, if so indicated on such Purchaser’s signature page hereto, wiring of an aggregate of up to $12,500,000.00 of these funds is permitted to occur on or before November 15, 2023, but otherwise on the same terms and conditions as provided herein.
REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF THE COMPANY
Except as specifically contemplated by this Agreement, the Company hereby represents and warrants to the Purchasers as of the date of this Agreement that:
2.1 Good Standing of the Company. The Company has been duly incorporated, is validly existing as a corporation in good standing under the laws of the jurisdiction of its incorporation, has the corporate power and authority to own its property and to conduct its business as described in the reports, schedules, forms, statements and other documents required to be filed by it with the SEC, pursuant to the reporting requirements of the Exchange Act (all of the foregoing filed prior to the date hereof and all exhibits included therein and financial statements and schedules thereto and documents (other than exhibits) incorporated by reference therein, the “SEC Documents”) and is duly qualified to transact business and is in good standing in each jurisdiction in which the conduct of its business or its ownership or leasing of property requires such qualification, except to the extent that the failure to be so qualified or be in good standing would not have a Material Adverse Effect on the Company.
2.2 Authorization of Capital Stock. The authorized capital stock of the Company consists of 200,000,000 shares of Common Stock and 10,000,000 shares of Preferred Stock. The shares of capital stock of the Company, including the Common Stock outstanding prior to the issuance of the Shares, have been duly authorized and are validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable and were not issued in violation of the preemptive or similar rights of any security holder of the Company.
2.3 Authorization of Shares. The Shares have been duly authorized and, when issued and delivered in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, will be validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable, and the issuance of such Shares will not be subject to any preemptive or similar rights of stockholders of the Company.
2.4 Private Placement. Neither the Company nor any of its Affiliates, nor any Person acting on its or their behalf, has, directly or indirectly, made any offers or sales of any security or solicited any offers to buy any security, under any circumstances that would require registration of the Shares under the Securities Act. Assuming the accuracy of the representations and warranties of the Purchasers contained in Article 3 hereof, the issuance of the Shares is exempt from registration under the Securities Act.
2.5 Authorization and Execution of Agreement. This Agreement has been duly authorized, executed and delivered by the Company. The Company has all requisite corporate power and authority to execute, deliver and perform its obligations under this Agreement.
2.6 Absence of Defaults and Conflicts. Except as otherwise disclosed in the SEC Documents, the Company is not (i) in violation of its charter, by-laws or similar incorporation or organizational documents or (ii) in violation or default in the performance or observance of any obligation, agreement, covenant or condition contained in any contract, indenture, mortgage, deed of trust, loan or credit agreement, note, lease or other agreement or instrument to which the Company is a party or by which it may be bound, or to which any of the property or assets of the Company is subject (collectively, “Agreements and Instruments”), except in the case of clause (ii), for such violations and defaults that would not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect on the Company; and the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement and the consummation of the transactions contemplated in this Agreement, and compliance by the Company with its obligations under this Agreement, do not and will not, whether with or without the giving of notice or passage of time or both, conflict with or result in a breach of any of the terms and provisions of, or constitute a default or Repayment Event (as defined below) under, or result in the creation or imposition of any lien, charge or encumbrance upon any property or assets of the Company pursuant to, the Agreements and Instruments, nor will such action result in any violation of the provisions of the charter, by-laws or similar organizational documents of the Company or any applicable law, statute, rule, regulation, judgment, order, writ or decree of any government, government instrumentality or court, domestic or foreign, having jurisdiction over the Company or any of its assets, properties or operations, except in each case (other than with respect to such charter, by-laws or similar organizational documents of the Company) for such conflicts, violations, breaches or defaults which would not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect on the Company. As used herein, a “Repayment Event” means any event or condition which gives the holder of any note, debenture or other evidence of indebtedness that is material to the operations or financial results of the Company (or any person acting on such holder’s behalf) the right to require the repurchase, redemption or repayment of all or a portion of such indebtedness by the Company.
2.7 Absence of Further Requirements. No filing with, or authorization, approval, consent, license, order, registration, exemption, qualification or decree of, any court or governmental authority or agency or any sub-division thereof is required for the performance by the Company of its obligations hereunder, in connection with the offering, issuance or sale of the Shares under this Agreement or the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, except such as have been already obtained or as may be required under the Securities Act or the rules and regulations of the SEC thereunder, state securities or blue sky laws, the rules and regulations of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (“FINRA”) or Nasdaq.
2.8 No Material Adverse Effect. Except as otherwise disclosed in the SEC Documents, subsequent to the respective dates as of which information is given in the SEC Documents: (a) the Company has not sustained any material loss or material interference with its business from fire, explosion, flood or other calamity, whether or not covered by insurance, or from any labor dispute or court or governmental action, order or decree, (b) there has not been any change in the capital stock or increase in short-term or long-term debt of the Company, other than a change in the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock due to the issuance of shares upon the exercise of outstanding options, warrants or convertible securities, the vesting and settlement of restricted stock units or the automatic increases in shares of Common Stock available under the Company’s incentive plans, in each case, as described in the SEC Documents, and (c) there has not occurred any Material Adverse Effect, or any development that would result in a prospective Material Adverse Effect, in or affecting the condition, financial or otherwise, or in or affecting the revenues, business, assets, management, financial position, stockholders’ equity, operations or results of operations or prospects of the Company.
2.9 Absence of Proceedings. There are no legal or governmental proceedings, inquiries or investigations pending or, to the Company’s knowledge, threatened to which the Company is a party or to which any of the properties of the Company is subject, other than proceedings accurately described in all material respects in the SEC Documents or proceedings that would not have a Material Adverse Effect on the Company, or on the power or ability of the Company to perform its obligations under this Agreement or to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.
2.10 Investment Company Act of 1940. The Company is not, and after giving effect to the offering and sale of the Shares and the application of the proceeds thereof as described herein will not be, required to register as an “investment company” as such term is defined in the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended.
2.11 Registration Rights. Except as described in the SEC Documents, there are no contracts, agreements or understandings between the Company and any person granting such person the right to require the Company to file a registration statement under the Securities Act with respect to any securities of the Company or to require the Company to include such securities with the Shares registered pursuant to a Registration Statement other than rights that have been validly waived.
2.12 Title to Real and Personal Property. Except as set forth in the SEC Documents, the Company has good and marketable title in fee simple to all real property and good and marketable title to all personal property owned by it which is material to the business of the Company, in each case free and clear of all liens, encumbrances and defects, except such as are described in the SEC Documents or such as do not materially affect the value of such property and do not materially interfere with the use made and proposed to be made of such property by the Company; and any real property and buildings held under lease by the Company are held by it under valid, subsisting and enforceable leases with such exceptions as are not material and do not interfere with the use made and proposed to be made of such property and buildings by the Company.
2.13 Intellectual Property Rights. To the Company’s knowledge, the Company has, or can acquire on reasonable terms, ownership of and/or license to, or otherwise has the right to use, all inventions, know-how (including trade secrets and other unpatented and/or unpatentable proprietary or confidential information, systems or procedures), patents and patent rights trademarks, service marks and trade names and copyrights (collectively “Intellectual Property”) material to carrying on its businesses as described in the SEC Documents. The Company has not received any written notice relating to any Intellectual Property, including written notice of: (A) infringement or misappropriation of, or conflict with, any Intellectual Property of a third party; (B) asserted rights of others with respect to any Intellectual Property of the Company; or (C) assertions that any Intellectual Property of the Company is invalid or otherwise inadequate to protect the interest of the Company, that in each case (if the subject of any unfavorable decision, ruling or finding), individually or in the aggregate, would have or would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. Except as disclosed in writing to the Purchasers or as described in the SEC Documents, to the Company’s knowledge, there are no third parties who have been able to establish any material rights to any Intellectual Property, except for the retained rights of the owners or licensors of any Intellectual Property that is licensed to the Company. There is no pending or, to the Company’s knowledge, threatened action, suit, proceeding or claim by others: (A) challenging the validity, enforceability or scope of any Intellectual Property of the Company in any material respect or (B) challenging the Company’s rights in or to any Intellectual Property in any material respect or (C) that the Company materially infringes, misappropriates or otherwise violates or conflicts with any Intellectual Property or other proprietary rights of others. The Company has complied in all material respects with the terms of each agreement described in the SEC Documents pursuant to which any Intellectual Property is licensed to the Company, except for such noncompliance as did not have a Material Adverse Effect, and all such agreements related to products currently made or sold by the Company, or to product candidates currently under development, are in full force and effect. All patents issued in the name of, or assigned to, or licensed to the Company, and all patent applications made by or on behalf of the Company (collectively, the “Company Patents”) have been duly and properly filed, except for such failures to file as would not have or would not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect. The Company has no knowledge of any material information that was required to be disclosed to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (the “PTO”) but that was not disclosed to the PTO with respect to any issued Company Patent, or that is required to be disclosed and has not yet been disclosed in any pending application in the Company Patents and that would preclude the grant of a patent on such application. To the Company’s knowledge, the Company is the sole owner or exclusive licensee of the Company Patents.
2.14 Insurance. Except as set forth in the SEC Documents, the Company carries or is entitled to the benefits of insurance, with, to the Company’s knowledge, reputable insurers, and in such amounts and covering such risks which the Company believes are reasonably adequate, and all such insurance is in full force and effect, except where the failure to maintain such insurance would not have or would not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect. The Company has no reason to believe that it will not be able (i) to renew its existing insurance coverage as and when such policies expire or (ii) to obtain comparable coverage from similar institutions as may be necessary or appropriate to conduct its business as now conducted and at a cost that would not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect.
2.15 Licenses and Permits. Except as set forth in the SEC Documents, the Company possesses all certificates, authorizations, consents, approvals, orders, licenses and permits issued by the appropriate federal, state or foreign regulatory authorities (collectively, the “Permits”), including the FDA and any other state, federal or foreign agencies or bodies engaged in the regulation of pharmaceuticals or biohazardous materials, necessary to conduct its business as now conducted and described in the SEC Documents, other than such certificates, authorizations, consents, approvals, orders, licenses and permits, the lack of which would not individually or in the aggregate have a Material Adverse Effect on the Company. Except as otherwise disclosed in the SEC Documents, all of such Permits are valid and in full force and effect, except where the invalidity of such Permits or the failure to be in full force and effect, individually or in the aggregate, would not have a Material Adverse Effect on the Company. Except as otherwise disclosed in the SEC Documents, there is no pending or, to the Company’s knowledge, threatened action, suit, proceeding or investigation that individually or in the aggregate would reasonably be expected to lead to the revocation, modification, termination, suspension or any other impairment of the rights of the holder of any such Permit which revocation, modification, termination, suspension or other impairment would have a Material Adverse Effect on the Company.
2.16 Accounting Controls. The Company has taken all actions reasonably necessary to ensure that, within the time period required by applicable law, the Company will have established and will maintain a system of internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act) sufficient to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”). Except as set forth in the SEC Documents, since the end of the Company’s most recent audited fiscal year, there has been (A) no material weakness in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting (whether or not remediated) and (B) no change in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.
2.17 Disclosure Controls. The Company has designed a system of “disclosure controls and procedures” (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Exchange Act Regulations) that will comply with the requirements of the Exchange Act within the time period required and has been designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, including controls and procedures designed to ensure that such information is accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
2.18 Independent Accountants. Weinberg & Company, P.A., who have certified the financial statements and supporting schedules of the Company that are included in the SEC Documents and which will be included as a part of the Registration Statement, is an independent registered public accounting firm with respect to the Company as required by the Securities Act and the rules and regulations of the SEC thereunder.
2.19 SEC Documents. The Company has timely filed the SEC Documents required to be filed by it with the SEC pursuant to the reporting requirements of the Exchange Act. As of their respective dates, the SEC Documents complied in all material respects with the requirements of the Exchange Act or the Securities Act, as the case may be, and the rules and regulations of the SEC promulgated thereunder applicable to the SEC Documents, and none of the SEC Documents, at the time they were filed with the SEC, contained any untrue statement of a material fact or omitted to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary in order to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading.
2.20 Financial Statements. (a) The financial statements included in the SEC Documents, together with the related schedules and notes, present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company at the dates indicated and the statement of operations, shareholders’ deficit and cash flows of the Company for the periods specified; said financial statements have been prepared in conformity with U.S. GAAP applied on a consistent basis throughout the periods involved except, in the case of unaudited interim financial statements, for normal year-end audit adjustments and the exclusion of footnotes. (b) Except as set forth in the SEC Documents, there are no off-balance sheet arrangements, outstanding guarantees or other contingent obligations of the Company that would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect on the Company. There are no transactions, arrangements or other relationships between and/or among the Company, any of its affiliates (as such term is defined in Rule 405 of the Securities Act) and any unconsolidated entity, including, but not limited to, any structured finance, special purpose or limited purpose entity, that would reasonably be expected to materially affect the Company’s liquidity or the availability of or requirements for its capital resources required to be described in SEC Documents which have not been described as required.
2.21 Tax Liabilities and Reserves. Other than as set forth in the SEC Documents, any tax returns required to be filed by the Company in any jurisdiction have been filed and any taxes, including any withholding taxes, excise taxes, penalties and interest, assessments and fees and other charges due or claimed to be due from the Company have been paid, other than any of those being contested in good faith and for which adequate reserves have been provided or any of those currently payable without penalty or interest, except to the extent that the failure to so file or pay would not result in a Material Adverse Effect on the Company. There is no material proposed tax deficiency, assessment, charge or levy against the Company, as to which a reserve would be required to be established under U.S. GAAP, that has not been so reserved or that should be disclosed in the SEC Documents that has not been so disclosed, except for any such deficiency, assessment, charge or levy which, individually or in the aggregate, would not have a Material Adverse Effect on the Company.
2.22 Related Party Transactions. Except as described in the SEC Documents, no relationship, direct or indirect, exists between or among the Company, on the one hand, and the directors, officers, stockholders, licensees, licensors or suppliers of the Company, on the other hand, that is required to be described in the SEC Documents which is not so described. There are no outstanding loans, advances (except normal advances for business expense in the ordinary course of business) or guarantees of indebtedness by the Company, to or for the benefit of any of the officers or directors of the Company or any of their respective family members, except as otherwise disclosed in the SEC Documents.
2.23 Commission Agreements. The Company is not a party to any contract, agreement or understanding with any person that would give rise to a valid claim against the Company for a brokerage commission, finder’s fee or like payment in connection with any transaction contemplated by this Agreement.
2.24 Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Except as otherwise disclosed in the SEC Documents, neither the Company nor, to the Company’s knowledge, any director, officer, agent, employee or affiliate of the Company (acting in such capacity) or any other person acting on behalf of the Company (acting in such capacity), has, directly or indirectly, given or agreed to give any money, gift or similar benefit (other than legal price concessions to customers in the ordinary course of business) to any customer, supplier, employee or agent of a customer or supplier, or official or employee of any governmental agency or instrumentality of any government (domestic or foreign) or any political party or candidate for office (domestic or foreign) or other person who was, is, or may be in a position to help or hinder the business of the Company (or assist it in connection with any actual or proposed transaction) in violation of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977, as amended (the “FCPA”) or any other applicable anti-bribery or anti-corruption law. The Company has taken reasonable steps to ensure that its accounting controls and procedures are sufficient to cause the Company to comply in all material respects with the FCPA.
2.25 Use of Proceeds. The Company shall use the net proceeds of the sale of the Shares hereunder for clinical development, manufacturing and facilities expansion and for general corporate purposes.
2.26 Acknowledgment Regarding Purchasers’ Purchase of Securities. The Company acknowledges and agrees that each of the Purchasers is acting solely in the capacity of an arm’s length purchaser with respect to this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby. The Company further acknowledges that no Purchaser is acting as a financial advisor or fiduciary of the Company (or in any similar capacity with respect to the Company) with respect to this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby and any advice given by any Purchaser or any of their respective representatives or agents to the Company in connection with this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby is merely incidental to such Purchaser’s purchase of the Shares. The Company further represents to each Purchaser that the Company’s decision to enter into this Agreement has been based on the independent evaluation of the transactions contemplated hereby by the Company and its representatives.

Except as otherwise disclosed in the SEC Documents, the Company is in material compliance with the requirements of Nasdaq for continued listing of the Common Stock thereon and any other Nasdaq listing and maintenance requirements.
2.30 No Disqualification Events. None of the Company, any of its predecessors, any director, executive officer, other officer of the Company participating in the offering contemplated hereby, any beneficial owner (as that term is defined in Rule 13d-3 under the Exchange Act) of 20% or more of the Company’s outstanding voting equity securities, calculated on the basis of voting power, any “promoter” (as that term is defined in Rule 405 under the Securities Act) connected with the Company in any capacity at the time of the Closing or any dealer participating in the offering of the Shares and any of such dealer’s directors, executive officers, other officers participating in the offering of the Shares (each, a “Covered Person” and, together, “Covered Persons”) is subject to any of the “Bad Actor” disqualifications described in Rule 506(d)(1)(i) to (viii) under the Securities Act (a “Disqualification Event”).

The Company has complied, to the extent applicable, with its disclosure obligations under Rule 506(e). With respect to each Covered Person, the Company has established procedures reasonably designed to ensure that the Company receives notice from each such Covered Person of (x) any Disqualification Event relating to that Covered Person, and (y) any event that would, with the passage of time, become a Disqualification Event relating to that Covered Person; in each case occurring up to and including the Closing Date. The Company is not for any other reason disqualified from reliance upon Rule 506 of Regulation D for purposes of the offer and sale of the Shares.
PURCHASER’S REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES
Each Purchaser represents and warrants to the Company, severally and not jointly, with respect to itself and its purchase hereunder, that as of the Closing:
3.1 Investment Purpose. The Purchaser is purchasing the Shares for its own account and not with a present view toward the public sale or distribution thereof and has no intention of selling or distributing any of such Shares or any arrangement or understanding with any other Persons regarding the sale or distribution of such Shares except in accordance with the provisions of Article 6 and except as would not result in a violation of the Securities Act. The Purchaser will not, directly or indirectly, offer, sell, pledge, transfer or otherwise dispose of (or solicit any offers to buy, purchase or otherwise acquire or take a pledge of) any of the Shares except in accordance with the provisions of Article 6 or pursuant to and in accordance with the Securities Act.
3.2 Information. The Purchaser has been furnished with all relevant materials relating to the business, finances and operations of the Company necessary to make an investment decision, and materials relating to the offer and sale of the Shares, that have been requested by the Purchaser, including, without limitation, the SEC Documents, and the Purchaser has had the opportunity to review the SEC Documents. The Purchaser has been afforded the opportunity to ask questions of the Company. Neither such inquiries nor any other investigation conducted by or on behalf of such Purchaser or its representatives or counsel shall modify, amend or affect such Purchaser’s right to rely on the truth, accuracy and completeness of the SEC Documents and the Company’s representations and warranties contained in the Agreement. The Purchaser specifically understands and acknowledges that, on the date of this Agreement and on the Closing Date, the Company may have in its possession non-public information that could be material to the market price of the Shares. The Purchaser hereby represents and warrants that, in entering into this Agreement and consummating the transactions contemplated hereby, it does not require the disclosure of such non-public information to it by the Company in order to make an investment in the Shares, and hereby waives all present or future claims arising out of or relating to the Company’s failure to disclose such non-public information to the Purchaser. The Purchaser also specifically acknowledges that the Company would not enter into this Agreement or any related documents in the absence of such Purchaser’s representations and acknowledgments set out in this Agreement, and that this Agreement, including such representations and acknowledgments, are a fundamental inducement to the Company, and a substantial portion of the consideration provided by such Purchaser, in this transaction, and that the Company would not enter into this transaction but for this inducement.
3.3 Acknowledgement of Risk.
(a) The Purchaser acknowledges and understands that its investment in the Shares involves a significant degree of risk, including, without limitation, (i) the Company remains a development stage business and requires substantial funds in addition to the proceeds from the sale of the Shares; (ii) an investment in the Company is speculative, and only Purchasers who can afford the loss of their entire investment should consider investing in the Company and the Shares; (iii) the Purchaser may not be able to liquidate its investment; (iv) transferability of the Shares is extremely limited; (v) in the event of a disposition of the Shares, the Purchaser could sustain the loss of its entire investment; and (vi) the Company has not paid any dividends on its Common Stock since inception and does not anticipate the payment of dividends in the foreseeable future. Such risks are more fully set forth in the SEC Documents;
(b) The Purchaser is able to bear the economic risk of holding the Shares for an indefinite period, and has knowledge and experience in financial and business matters such that it is capable of evaluating the risks of the investment in the Shares; and
(c) The Purchaser has, in connection with the Purchaser’s decision to purchase Shares, not relied upon any representations or other information (whether oral or written) other than as set forth in the representations and warranties of the Company contained herein and the information disclosed in the SEC Documents, and the Purchaser has, with respect to all matters relating to this Agreement and the offer and sale of the Shares, relied solely upon the advice of such Purchaser’s own counsel and has not relied upon or consulted any counsel to the Company.
3.4 Governmental Review. The Purchaser understands that no United States federal or state agency or any other government or governmental agency has passed upon or made any recommendation or endorsement of the Shares or an investment therein.
3.5 Transfer or Resale. The Purchaser understands that:
(a) the Shares have not been and are not being registered under the Securities Act (other than as contemplated in Article 6) or any applicable state securities laws and, consequently, the Purchaser may have to bear the risk of owning the Shares for an indefinite period of time because the Shares may not be transferred unless (i) the resale of the Shares is registered pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act, as contemplated in Article 6; (ii) the Purchaser has delivered to the Company an opinion of counsel (in form, substance and scope customary for opinions of counsel in comparable transactions) to the effect that the Shares to be sold or transferred may be sold or transferred pursuant to an exemption from such registration; or (iii) the Shares are sold or transferred pursuant to Rule 144;
(b) any sale of the Shares made in reliance on Rule 144 may be made only in accordance with the terms of Rule 144 and, if Rule 144 is not applicable, any resale of the Shares under circumstances in which the seller (or the Person through whom the sale is made) may be deemed to be an underwriter (as that term is defined in the Securities Act) may require compliance with some other exemption under the Securities Act or the rules and regulations of the SEC thereunder; and
(c) except as set forth in Article 6, neither the Company nor any other Person is under any obligation to register the resale of the Shares under the Securities Act or any state securities laws or to comply with the terms and conditions of any exemption thereunder.
(a) The Purchaser understands the book entries representing the Shares will bear a restrictive legend in substantially the following form, in addition to any other legend required by applicable state securities laws or as may be appropriate to legend any restrictions on transfer set forth in this Agreement (and a stop-transfer order may be placed against transfer of the book entries for such Shares):
THE SHARES REPRESENTED HEREBY HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, OR THE SECURITIES LAWS OF ANY STATE OF THE UNITED STATES. THE SHARES MAY NOT BE SOLD, OFFERED FOR SALE, PLEDGED, HYPOTHECATED, TRANSFERRED OR ASSIGNED IN THE ABSENCE OF AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT FOR THE SHARES UNDER APPLICABLE SECURITIES LAWS, OR UNLESS OFFERED, SOLD, PLEDGED, HYPOTHECATED OR TRANSFERRED PURSUANT TO AN AVAILABLE EXEMPTION FROM THE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS OF THOSE LAWS. THE COMPANY SHALL BE ENTITLED TO REQUIRE AN OPINION OF COUNSEL SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY THAT SUCH REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED TO THE EXTENT THAT SUCH OPINION IS REQUIRED PURSUANT TO THAT CERTAIN SECURITIES PURCHASE AGREEMENT UNDER WHICH THE SHARES WERE ISSUED.
(b) To the extent the resale of any issued Shares is registered under the Securities Act pursuant to an effective Registration Statement, the Company agrees to promptly (i) authorize the removal of the legend set forth in Section 3.6(a) and any other legend not required by applicable law from such Shares, (ii) cause its transfer agent to issue such Shares without such legends to the holders thereof by electronic delivery at the applicable balance account at the Depository Trust Company and (iii) if required by the Company’s transfer agent, cause its counsel to issue a legal opinion to effect the removal of any restrictive legends. The Company’s obligation to remove legends under this Section 3.6(b) may be conditioned upon the Purchaser providing such representations and documentation as the Company or its legal counsel deems reasonably necessary in connection with the removal of restrictive legends, provided that the Company agrees to notify the Purchaser of any such necessary representations or documetantation as soon as reasonably practicable (which shall generally be within one Business Day following a request by a Purchaser). With respect to any Shares for which restrictive legends are removed pursuant to this Section 3.6(b), the holder thereof agrees to only sell such Shares when and as permitted by the effective Registration Statement covering such resale and in accordance with applicable securities laws and regulations, or in accordance with Rule 144.
(c) The Purchaser may request that the Company remove, and the Company agrees to authorize the removal of any legend from any Shares issued to such Purchaser (i) following any sale, or certification by a Purchaser of the expected sale, of such Shares pursuant to Rule 144, or (ii) if such Shares are eligible for sale under Rule 144 following the expiration of the one-year holding requirement under subparagraphs (b)(1)(i) and (d) thereof and the Purchaser is not an affiliate of the Company, in each case following receipt from the Purchaser of an appropriate certification to such effect. Following the time a legend is no longer required for the Shares under this Section 3.6(c), the Company will, no later than two Trading Days following the delivery by a Purchaser to the Company or the Company’s transfer agent of a legended certificate representing such securities (if any) and appropriate certifications that the applicable requirements have been satisfied (the “Securities Delivery Date”), deliver or cause to be delivered to such Purchaser evidence of book entry representing such securities that is free from all restrictive and other legends or, in the case of Shares, if requested by Purchaser, by crediting such Shares to the account of the Purchaser or its designee with The Depository Trust Company through its Deposit or Withdrawal at Custodian system (“DWAC”) if the Company is then a participant in such system (“DWAC Delivery”).
3.7 Authorization; Enforcement. The Purchaser has the requisite power and authority to enter into this Agreement and to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby. The Purchaser has taken all necessary action to authorize the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement. Upon the execution and delivery of this Agreement, this Agreement shall constitute a valid and binding obligation of the Purchaser enforceable in accordance with its terms, except as enforceability may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or similar laws affecting creditors’ and contracting parties’ rights generally and except as enforceability may be subject to general principles of equity and except as rights to indemnity and contribution may be limited by state or federal securities laws or public policy underlying such laws.
3.8 Residency. Unless the Purchaser has otherwise notified the Company in writing, the Purchaser is a resident of the jurisdiction set forth immediately below such Purchaser’s name on the signature pages hereto.
3.9 Accredited Investor Status. Such Purchaser is an “accredited investor” as that term is defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D.
3.10 Beneficial Ownership. Each Purchaser represents that the purchase by such Purchaser of the Shares will not result in such Purchaser (individually or together with any other person with whom such Purchaser has identified, or will have identified, itself as part of a “group” in a public filing made with the SEC involving the Company’s securities) acquiring, or obtaining the right to acquire, in excess of 19.999% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock or the voting power of the Company on a post-transaction basis that assumes that the Closing shall have occurred. Each Purchaser does not presently intend to, alone or together with others, make a public filing with the SEC to disclose that it has (or that it together with such other persons have) acquired, or obtained the right to acquire, as a result of the Closing (when added to any other securities of the Company that it or they then own or have the right to acquire), in excess of 19.999% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock or the voting power of the Company on a post-transaction basis that assumes that the Closing shall have occurred.
4.1 Reporting Status. The Company’s Common Stock is registered under Section 12 of the Exchange Act. During the Registration Period, the Company will timely file all documents with the SEC, and the Company will not terminate its status as an issuer required to file reports under the Exchange Act even if the Exchange Act or the rules and regulations thereunder would permit such termination.
4.2 Expenses. The Company and each Purchaser shall be liable for, and will pay, its own expenses incurred in connection with the negotiation, preparation, execution and delivery of this Agreement, including, without limitation, attorneys’ and consultants’ fees and expenses.
4.3 Financial Information. The financial statements of the Company to be included in any documents filed with the SEC will be prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, consistently applied (except (i) as may be otherwise indicated in such financial statements or the notes thereto, or (ii) in the case of unaudited interim statements, to the extent they may not include footnotes, may be condensed or summary statements or may conform to the SEC’s rules and instructions for Reports on Form 10-Q), and will fairly present in all material respects the financial position of the Company and results of its operations and cash flows as of, and for the periods covered by, such financial statements (subject, in the case of unaudited statements, to normal and recurring year-end audit adjustments).
4.4 Sales by Purchasers; Purchases Prior to the Closing. Each Purchaser will sell any Shares held by it in compliance with applicable prospectus delivery requirements, if any, or otherwise in compliance with the requirements for an exemption from registration under the Securities Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder. No Purchaser will make any sale, transfer or other disposition of the Shares in violation of federal or state securities laws. Between the date of this Agreement and the Closing, each Purchaser agrees that neither it nor any of such Purchaser’s Attribution Parties will acquire any shares of Common Stock or any securities of the Company which would entitle the holder thereof to acquire at any time Common Stock, other than the Shares.
4.5 Form D and Blue Sky. The Company agrees to timely file a Form D with respect to the Shares as required under Regulation D. The Company shall, on or before the Closing Date, take such action as the Company shall reasonably determine is necessary in order to obtain an exemption for, or to qualify the Shares for, sale to the Purchasers at the Closing occurring on the Closing Date pursuant to this Agreement under applicable securities or “Blue Sky” laws of the states of the United States, and shall provide promptly upon the request of any Purchasers evidence of any such action so taken. The Company shall make all filings and reports relating to the offer and sale of the Shares required under applicable securities or Blue Sky laws of the states of the United States following the Closing Date.
4.6 Short Sales and Confidentiality After the Date Hereof. Each Purchaser shall not, and shall cause its Affiliates not to, engage, directly or indirectly, in any transactions in the Company’s securities (including, without limitation, any Short Sales involving the Company’s securities) during the period from the date hereof until such time as the transactions contemplated by this Agreement are first publicly disclosed by the Company. Each Purchaser, severally and not jointly with the other Purchasers, covenants that until such time as the transactions contemplated by this Agreement are publicly disclosed by the Company, such Purchaser will maintain the confidentiality of the existence and terms of this transaction and the information included in the Transaction Documents. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that a Purchaser is a multi-managed investment vehicle whereby separate portfolio managers manage separate portions of such Purchaser’s assets and the portfolio managers have no direct knowledge of the investment decisions made by the portfolio managers managing other portions of such Purchaser’s assets, the representation set forth above shall apply only with respect to the portion of assets managed by the portfolio manager that have knowledge about the financing transaction contemplated by this Agreement.

(e) Nasdaq Qualification. The Shares to be issued shall be duly authorized for listing by Nasdaq, subject to official notice of issuance, to the extent required by the rules of Nasdaq.
(f) Absence of Litigation. No proceeding challenging this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby, or seeking to prohibit, alter, prevent or materially delay the Closing, shall have been instituted or be pending before any court, arbitrator, governmental body, agency or official.
(g) No Governmental Prohibition. The sale of the Shares by the Company shall not be prohibited by any law or governmental order or regulation.
5.2 Conditions to Purchasers’ Obligations. Each Purchaser’s obligation to complete the purchase and sale of the Shares is subject to the waiver by such Purchaser or fulfillment as of the Closing Date of the following conditions:
(a) Representations and Warranties. The representations and warranties made by the Company in Article 2 shall be true and correct in all material respects as of the Closing Date.
(b) Covenants. All covenants, agreements and conditions contained in this Agreement to be performed by the Company on or prior to the Closing Date shall have been performed or complied with in all material respects.

(e) No Governmental Prohibition. The sale of the Shares by the Company shall not be prohibited by any law or governmental order or regulation

6.1 As soon as reasonably practicable, but in no event later than 30 days after the Closing Date (the “Filing Date”), the Company shall file a registration statement covering the resale of the Registrable Securities with the SEC for an offering to be made on a continuous basis pursuant to Rule 415, or if Rule 415 is not available for offers and sales of the Registrable Securities, by such other means of distribution of Registrable Securities as the Holders of a majority of such Registrable Securities may reasonably specify (the “Initial Registration Statement”). The Initial Registration Statement shall be on Form S-1 and the Company shall effect the registration, qualifications or compliances (including, without limitation, the execution of any required undertaking to file post-effective amendments, appropriate qualifications or exemptions under applicable blue sky or other state securities laws and appropriate compliance with applicable securities laws, requirements or regulations) as promptly as possible after the filing thereof, but in any event prior to the date which is five days after the receipt of a notification of no-review in the event of no review by the SEC, or 120 days after the Filing Date in the event the Staff reviews and has written comments. For purposes of clarification, any failure by the Company to file the Initial Registration Statement by the Filing Date or to effect such Registration Statement within such five days after the notification of no-review or 120 days after the Filing Date, as applicable, shall not otherwise relieve the Company of its obligations to file or effect the Initial Registration Statement as set forth above in this Section 6.1. In the event the SEC informs the Company that all of the Registrable Securities cannot, as a result of the application of Rule 415, be registered for resale as a secondary offering on a single registration statement, the Company agrees to promptly (i) inform each of the Holders thereof, (ii) use its best efforts to file amendments to the Initial Registration Statement as required by the SEC and/or (iii) withdraw the Initial Registration Statement and file a new registration statement (a “New Registration Statement”), in either case covering the maximum number of Registrable Securities permitted to be registered by the SEC, on Form S-1; provided, however, that prior to filing such amendment or New Registration Statement, the Company shall be obligated to use its best efforts to advocate with the SEC for the registration of all of the Registrable Securities. In the event the Company amends the Initial Registration Statement or files a New Registration Statement, as the case may be, under clauses (ii) or (iii) above, the Company will use its best efforts to file with the SEC, within 30 days following the date allowed by the SEC, one or more registration statements on Form S-1, to register for resale those Registrable Securities that were not registered for resale on the Initial Registration Statement, as amended, or the New Registration Statement (the “Remainder Registration Statements”). If the SEC limits the number of Registrable Securities permitted to be registered on a particular Registration Statement (and notwithstanding that the Company used diligent efforts to advocate with the SEC for the registration of all or a greater number of Registrable Securities), any required cutback of Registrable Securities (such Registrable Securities so cut back, the “Cut Back Securities”) shall be applied to the Purchasers pro rata in accordance with the number of such Registrable Securities sought to be included in such Registration Statement by reference to the amount of Registrable Securities set forth under such Purchaser’s name on such Purchaser’s signature page hereto (and in the case of a subsequent transfer, the initial Purchaser’s transferee) relative to the aggregate amount of all Registrable Securities. In no event shall any Purchaser be identified as a statutory underwriter in the Registration Statement unless in response to a comment or request from the Staff or another regulatory agency; provided, that if the SEC requests that a Purchaser be identified as a statutory underwriter in the Registration Statement, such Purchaser will have an opportunity to withdraw from the Registration Statement.
6.2 All Registration Expenses incurred in connection with any registration, qualification, exemption or compliance pursuant to Section 6.1 shall be borne by the Company. All Selling Expenses relating to the sale of securities registered by or on behalf of Holders shall be borne by such Holders pro rata on the basis of the number of securities so registered.
6.3 In the case of the registration, qualification, exemption or compliance effected by the Company pursuant to this Agreement, the Company shall, upon reasonable request, inform each Holder as to the status of such registration, qualification, exemption and compliance. At its expense the Company shall:
(a) except for such times as the Company is permitted hereunder to suspend the use of the prospectus forming part of a Registration Statement, use its best efforts to keep such registration, and any qualification, exemption or compliance under state securities laws which the Company determines to obtain, continuously effective with respect to a Holder, and to keep the applicable Registration Statement free of any material misstatements or omissions, until the earlier of the following: (i) May 31, 2025 or (ii) the date all Shares held by such Holder may be sold under Rule 144 without being subject to any volume, manner of sale or publicly available information requirements. The period of time during which the Company is required hereunder to keep a Registration Statement effective is referred to herein as the “Registration Period.”
(b) advise the Holders within two Business Days:
(i) when a Registration Statement or any amendment thereto has been filed with the SEC and when such Registration Statement or any post-effective amendment thereto has become effective;
(ii) of any request by the SEC for amendments or supplements to any Registration Statement or the prospectus included therein or for additional information;
(iii) of the issuance by the SEC of any stop order suspending the effectiveness of any Registration Statement or the initiation of any proceedings for such purpose;
(iv) of the receipt by the Company of any notification with respect to the suspension of the qualification of the Registrable Securities included therein for sale in any jurisdiction or the initiation or threatening of any proceeding for such purpose; and
(v) of the occurrence of any event that requires the making of any changes in any Registration Statement or prospectus so that, as of such date, the statements therein are not misleading and do not omit to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein (in the case of a prospectus, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made) not misleading;
(c) use its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain the withdrawal of any order suspending the effectiveness of any Registration Statement as soon as reasonably practicable;
(d) if a Holder so requests in writing, promptly furnish to each such Holder, without charge, at least one copy of each Registration Statement and each post-effective amendment thereto, including financial statements and schedules, and, if explicitly requested, all exhibits in the form filed with the SEC;
(e) during the Registration Period, promptly deliver to each such Holder, without charge, as many copies of each prospectus included in a Registration Statement and any amendment or supplement thereto as such Holder may reasonably request in writing; and the Company consents to the use, consistent with the provisions hereof, of the prospectus or any amendment or supplement thereto by each of the selling Holders of Registrable Securities in connection with the offering and sale of the Registrable Securities covered by a prospectus or any amendment or supplement thereto;
(f) during the Registration Period, if a Holder so requests in writing, deliver to each Holder, without charge, (i) one copy of the following documents, other than those documents available via the SEC’s Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval system (or successor thereto): (A) its annual report to its stockholders, if any (which annual report shall contain financial statements audited in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States by a firm of certified public accountants of recognized standing), (B) if not included in substance in its annual report to stockholders, its annual report on Form 10-K (or similar form), (C) its definitive proxy statement with respect to its annual meeting of stockholders, (D) each of its quarterly reports to its stockholders, and, if not included in substance in its quarterly reports to stockholders, its quarterly report on Form 10-Q (or similar form), and (E) a copy of each full Registration Statement (the foregoing, in each case, excluding exhibits); and (ii) if explicitly requested, all exhibits excluded by the parenthetical to the immediately preceding clause (E);
(g) prior to any public offering of Registrable Securities pursuant to any Registration Statement, promptly take such actions as may be necessary to register or qualify or obtain an exemption for offer and sale under the securities or blue sky laws of such United States jurisdictions as any such Holders reasonably request in writing, provided that the Company shall not for any such purpose be required to qualify generally to transact business as a foreign corporation in any jurisdiction where it is not so qualified or to consent to general service of process in any such jurisdiction, and do any and all other acts or things reasonably necessary or advisable to enable the offer and sale in such jurisdictions of the Registrable Securities covered by any such Registration Statement;
(h) upon the occurrence of any event contemplated by Section 6.3(b)(v) above, except for such times as the Company is permitted hereunder to suspend the use of a prospectus forming part of a Registration Statement, the Company shall use its best efforts to as soon as reasonably practicable prepare a post-effective amendment to such Registration Statement or a supplement to the related prospectus, or file any other required document so that, as thereafter delivered to purchasers of the Registrable Securities included therein, such prospectus will not include any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact necessary to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading;
(i) otherwise use its commercially reasonable efforts to comply in all material respects with all applicable rules and regulations of the SEC which could affect the sale of the Registrable Securities;
(j) use its commercially reasonable efforts to cause all Registrable Securities to be listed on each securities exchange or market, if any, on which equity securities issued by the Company have been listed;
(k) use its commercially reasonable efforts to take all other steps necessary to effect the registration of the Registrable Securities contemplated hereby and to enable the Holders to sell Registrable Securities under Rule 144;
(l) provide to each Purchaser and its representatives, if requested, the opportunity to conduct a reasonable inquiry of the Company’s financial and other records during normal business hours and make available its officers, directors and employees for questions regarding information which such Purchaser may reasonably request in order to fulfill any due diligence obligation on its part; and
(m) permit a single counsel for the Purchasers to review any Registration Statement and all amendments and supplements thereto (other than supplements to a Registration Statement on Form S-1 solely for the purpose of incorporating other filings with the SEC into such Registration Statement and other than an amendment to a Registration Statement on Form S-1 for the purpose of converting such Registration Statement into a Registration Statement on Form S-3), within two Business Days prior to the filing thereof with the SEC; provided that each Purchaser shall have an opportunity to review all disclosures in which it is named prior to filing;
(n) permit each Purchaser to review the information contemplated to be included in the Selling Stockholder’s section of any Registration Statement relating to such Purchaser within two Business Days prior to the filing thereof with the SEC;
provided that, in the case of clauses (l), (m) and (n) above, the Company shall not be required (A) to delay the filing of any Registration Statement or any amendment or supplement thereto as a result of any ongoing diligence inquiry by or on behalf of a Holder or to incorporate any comments to any Registration Statement or any amendment or supplement thereto by or on behalf of a Holder if such inquiry or comments would require a delay in the filing of such Registration Statement, amendment or supplement, as the case may be, or (B) to provide, and shall not provide, any Purchaser or its representatives with material, non-public information unless such Purchaser agrees to receive such information and enters into a written confidentiality agreement with the Company in a form reasonably acceptable to the Company.
6.4 The Holders shall have no right to take any action to restrain, enjoin or otherwise delay any registration pursuant to Section 6.1 hereof as a result of any controversy that may arise with respect to the interpretation or implementation of this Agreement.
6.5 (a) To the extent permitted by law, the Company shall indemnify each Holder and each Person controlling such Holder within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act, with respect to which any registration that has been effected pursuant to this Agreement, against all claims, losses, damages and liabilities (or action in respect thereof), including any of the foregoing incurred in settlement of any litigation, commenced or threatened (subject to Section 6.5(c) below), arising out of or based on any untrue statement (or alleged untrue statement) of a material fact contained in any Registration Statement, prospectus, any amendment or supplement thereof, or other document incident to any such registration, qualification or compliance or based on any omission (or alleged omission) to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, in light of the circumstances in which they were made, or any violation by the Company of any rule or regulation promulgated by the Securities Act applicable to the Company and relating to any action or inaction required of the Company in connection with any such registration, qualification or compliance, and will reimburse each Holder and each Person controlling such Holder, for reasonable legal and other out-of-pocket expenses reasonably incurred in connection with investigating or defending any such claim, loss, damage, liability or action as incurred; provided that the Company will not be liable in any such case to the extent that any untrue statement or omission or allegation thereof is made in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished to the Company by or on behalf of such Holder for use in preparation of any Registration Statement, prospectus, amendment or supplement; provided further, that the Company will not be liable in any such case where the claim, loss, damage or liability arises out of or is related to the failure of such Holder to comply with the covenants and agreements contained in this Agreement respecting sales of Registrable Securities.
(b) Each Holder will severally, and not jointly, indemnify the Company, each of its directors and officers, and each Person who controls the Company within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act, against all claims, losses, damages and liabilities (or actions in respect thereof), including any of the foregoing incurred in settlement of any litigation, commenced or threatened (subject to Section 6.5(c) below), arising out of or based on any untrue statement (or alleged untrue statement) of a material fact contained in any Registration Statement, prospectus, or any amendment or supplement thereof, incident to any such registration, or based on any omission (or alleged omission) to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, in light of the circumstances in which they were made, and will reimburse the Company, such directors and officers, and each Person controlling the Company for reasonable legal and any other expenses reasonably incurred in connection with investigating or defending any such claim, loss, damage, liability or action as incurred, in each case to the extent, but only to the extent, that such untrue statement or omission or allegation thereof is made in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished to the Company by or on behalf of the Holder for use in preparation of any Registration Statement, prospectus, amendment or supplement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a Holder’s aggregate liability pursuant to this subsection (b) and subsection (d) shall be limited to the net amount actually received by the Holder from the sale of the Registrable Securities.
(c) Each party entitled to indemnification under this Section 6.5 (the “Indemnified Party”) shall give notice to the party required to provide indemnification (the “Indemnifying Party”) promptly after such Indemnified Party has actual knowledge of any claim as to which indemnity may be sought, and shall permit the Indemnifying Party (at its expense) to assume the defense of any such claim or any litigation resulting therefrom, provided that counsel for the Indemnifying Party, who shall conduct the defense of such claim or litigation, shall be approved by the Indemnified Party (whose approval shall not unreasonably be withheld), and the Indemnified Party may participate in such defense at such Indemnified Party’s expense, and provided further that the failure of any Indemnified Party to give notice as provided herein shall not relieve the Indemnifying Party of its obligations under this Agreement, unless such failure is materially prejudicial to the Indemnifying Party in defending such claim or litigation. An Indemnifying Party shall not be liable for any settlement of an action or claim effected without its written consent (which consent will not be unreasonably withheld). No Indemnifying Party, in its defense of any such claim or litigation, shall, except with the consent of each Indemnified Party, consent to entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement which does not include as an unconditional term thereof the giving by the claimant or plaintiff to such Indemnified Party of a release from all liability in respect to such claim or litigation.
(d) If the indemnification provided for in this Section 6.5 is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unavailable to an Indemnified Party with respect to any loss, liability, claim, damage or expense referred to therein, then the Indemnifying Party, in lieu of indemnifying such Indemnified Party thereunder, shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by such Indemnified Party as a result of such loss, liability, claim, damage or expense in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the Indemnifying Party on the one hand and of the Indemnified Party on the other in connection with the statements or omissions which resulted in such loss, liability, claim, damage or expense as well as any other relevant equitable considerations. The relative fault of the Indemnifying Party and of the Indemnified Party shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether the untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or the omission to state a material fact relates to information supplied by the Indemnifying Party or by the Indemnified Party and the parties’ relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such statement or omission.
6.6 (a) Each Holder agrees that, upon receipt of any notice from the Company of the happening of any event requiring the preparation of a supplement or amendment to a prospectus relating to Registrable Securities so that, as thereafter delivered to the Holders, such prospectus shall not contain an untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, each Holder will forthwith discontinue disposition of Registrable Securities pursuant to a Registration Statement and prospectus contemplated by Section 6.1 until its receipt of copies of the supplemented or amended prospectus from the Company and, if so directed by the Company, each Holder shall deliver to the Company all copies, other than permanent file copies then in such Holder’s possession, of the prospectus covering such Registrable Securities current at the time of receipt of such notice.
(b) Each Holder shall suspend, upon request of the Company, any disposition of Registrable Securities pursuant to any Registration Statement and prospectus contemplated by Section 6.1 during no more than two periods of no more than 30 calendar days each during any 12-month period to the extent that the Board of Directors of the Company determines in good faith that the sale of Registrable Securities under any such Registration Statement would be reasonably likely to cause a violation of the Securities Act or Exchange Act.
