Introductory Note

As previously disclosed, on January 29, 2021, eHealth, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a binding term sheet (the “Term Sheet”), with an affiliate of H.I.G. Capital (together with its affiliated funds, “H.I.G.”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to sell to affiliated entities of H.I.G., 2,250,000 shares of newly designated 8% convertible preferred stock at an aggregate purchase price of $225,000,000. The Company has entered into the Investment Agreement (as defined below), which restates and supersedes the Term Sheet.


Item 1.01
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Investment Agreement

On February 17, 2021, the Company entered into an Investment Agreement (the “Investment Agreement”) with Echelon Health SPV, LP (the “Investor”), an investment vehicle of H.I.G., pursuant to which the Company has agreed to sell to the Investor at closing, 2,250,000 shares of the Company’s newly designated Series A Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share (“Series A Preferred Stock”), at an aggregate purchase price of $225,000,000, at a price of $100 (the “Stated Value” per share of Series A Preferred Stock) per share (the “Private Placement”). The Private Placement is subject to closing conditions, including, among others: (i) the expiration or early termination of the waiting period (and any extension thereof) applicable to the consummation of the Private Placement under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended; (ii) the confirmation by Nasdaq that it has no objection to the terms and conditions of the Private Placement; and (iii) the determination that consummation of the Private Placement would not cause the Company’s outside auditor to no longer be deemed independent under the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission or the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board. The parties have agreed to cooperate with each other and use reasonable best efforts to promptly take such actions to cause the closing conditions to be satisfied as promptly as reasonably practicable.

The Investment Agreement contains certain negative operating covenants that the Company has agreed to comply with from the date of the Investment Agreement until the closing of the Private Placement (or such earlier date that the Investment Agreement is terminated), including, among others, that the Company will not: (i) issue, sell or grant any shares of its capital stock or other equity or voting interests, or securities convertible into capital stock or such interests, subject to certain exceptions; (ii) acquire any outstanding shares of its capital stock or other equity or voting interests, subject to certain exceptions; (iii) pay any dividend on, or make any other distribution in respect of, any shares of its capital stock or other equity or voting interests, subject to certain exceptions; (iv) purchase or acquire all or substantially all of the equity interests, property, assets or business of any other entity or purchase or acquire any assets of any other entity constituting a business unit of such entity, subject to certain exceptions; (v) sell, license or lease to any entity any of its properties, rights or assets for consideration, individually or in the aggregate, in excess of $25,000,000, subject to certain exceptions; (vi) incur indebtedness, subject to certain exceptions; or (vii) enter into any new, or amend, terminate or renew in any material respect, any material contract between the Company or one of its subsidiaries, on the one hand, and any of its affiliates (other than the Company’s subsidiaries) or any executive officer or director of the Company or any of its subsidiaries on the other hand, outside of the ordinary course of business or on terms and conditions that could reasonably be expected to be obtained on an arm’s-length basis from unrelated third parties.

The Investment Agreement may be terminated (i) upon the written notice of either the Investor or the Company if the closing of the Private Placement has not occurred on or prior to May 10, 2021; provided that such notifying party is not then in material breach of the Investment Agreement or (ii) by the mutual written consent of the Investor and the Company.

Board Nomination Rights of the Series A Preferred Stock

The Investor will be entitled to nominate one individual for election to the Company’s board of directors (the “Board”) so long as it continues to own at least 30% of the Common Stock issuable or issued upon conversion of the Series A Preferred Stock originally issued to it in the Private Placement, and the Company will adjust the size of its Board as needed to appoint such nominee. For so long as the Investor is entitled to nominate one or more individuals to the Board, if any such nominee has not been appointed to the Board for any reason, the Investor will be entitled to designate one observer to the Board until such nominee is elected to the Board, subject to the terms and conditions of the Investment Agreement.




Approval of Corporate Actions

For so long as the Investor continues to own at least 30% of the Series A Preferred Stock originally issued to it in the Private Placement, the consent of the Investor will be required for the Company or its subsidiaries to (i) incur certain indebtedness in excess of an aggregate of $175,000,000 that ranks senior to, or pari passu with, the Series A Preferred Stock, subject to certain exceptions; (ii) purchase or acquire all or substantially all of the equity interests, property, assets or business of any other entity or purchase or acquire any assets of any other entity constituting a business unit of such entity, in excess of $25,000,000, subject to certain exceptions; (iii) declare and pay cash dividends or distributions with respect to Company equity securities, subject to certain exceptions; (iv) create or issue any equity securities of the Company (or rights exercisable into equity securities of the Company) that rank senior to, or pari passu with, the rights or preferences of the Series A Preferred Stock; (v) permit any adverse change (including as a result of a merger, consolidation or other similar or extraordinary transaction) to the rights or preferences of the Series A Preferred Stock set forth in the Company’s certificate of incorporation or bylaws; (vi) sell, license or lease to any entity any of its properties, rights or assets for consideration, individually or in the aggregate, in excess of $25,000,000, subject to certain exceptions; and (vii) enter into any new, or amend, terminate or renew in any material respect, any material contract between the Company or one of its subsidiaries, on the one hand, and any of its affiliates (other than the Company’s subsidiaries) or any executive officer or director of the Company or any of its subsidiaries on the other hand, outside of the ordinary course of business or on terms and conditions not materially less favorable to the Company or its subsidiaries than could be obtained on an arm’s-length basis from unrelated third parties.

For so long as the Investor continues to own at least 30% of the Series A Preferred Stock originally issued to it in the Private Placement, the Company shall be required to maintain (i) an Asset Coverage Ratio (as defined below) of at least 2x (increasing to 2.5x thirty months after the date of the Investment Agreement) (the “Minimum Asset Coverage Ratio”) and (ii) maintain a minimum average Liquidity for the last ten business days of each calendar month (the “Minimum Liquidity Amount”) of not less than the thresholds specified in clauses (B) and (C) in this paragraph. In the event that (A) the Company is unable to maintain the Minimum Asset Coverage Ratio as of any fiscal quarter end, (B) the Company’s Minimum Liquidity Amount is less than $125,000,000 for three consecutive months (provided that if the average volume-weighted average price of the Common Stock for the ten consecutive trading days up to and including the last business day of that three month period exceeds $125 per share, then such amount shall be $100,000,000), or (C) the Minimum Liquidity Amount is below $75,000,000 for any month (provided that if the average volume-weighted average price of the Common Stock for the ten consecutive trading days up to and including the last business day of that month exceeds $125 per share, then such amount shall be $65,000,000), then (1) the Investor shall have the right to appoint one additional director, subject to the conditions and procedures set forth in the Investment Agreement; and (2) the consent of the Investor will be required to approve (x) the annual budget or any material deviation therefrom, (y) the hiring or firing of the Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Digital Officer and Chief Revenue Officer of the Company, and (z) certain indebtedness that ranks senior to, or pari passu with, the Series A Preferred Stock (other than drawdowns of existing revolving credit facilities); provided that, with respect to the Minimum Liquidity Amount, if the Company is able to satisfy the requirements set forth in (B) and (C) in this paragraph above for 12 consecutive months, the Investor will no longer have the approval rights and board nomination rights set forth above unless and until such time as the Company is again unable to satisfy the Minimum Liquidity Amount and Minimum Asset Coverage Ratio tests. “Asset Coverage Ratio” means the total amount of commissions receivable on the Company’s balance sheet divided by the Accrued Value plus any funded indebtedness.

“Liquidity” means all cash, cash equivalents, short term investments and marketable securities of the Company on a consolidated basis, and the Company’s freely available to be drawn loan commitments under any applicable credit facility in effect at the time of calculation; but excluding any restricted cash.

Other Rights

Pursuant to the Investment Agreement, the Investor will receive customary registration rights and will be subject to customary standstill and transfer restrictions.




Certificate of Designations

Designation of Series A Preferred Stock

The Series A Preferred Stock to be issued at the closing of the Private Placement will have the designations, powers, preferences, rights, qualifications, limitations and restrictions set forth in the form of Certificate of Designations of the Series A Preferred Stock filed herewith as Exhibit A to the Investment Agreement (the “Certificate of Designations”). Certain of the rights of the Series A Preferred Stock set forth in the form of Certificate of Designations to be filed in connection with the closing of the Private Placement are summarized below.

Dividend Rights

Dividends will initially accrue on the Series A Preferred Stock daily at 8% per annum on the Stated Value per share and compound semiannually, payable in kind (“PIK") until the second anniversary of the closing date of the Private Placement (the “Closing Date”) on June 30 and December 31 of each year (each, a “Dividend Payment Date”), beginning on June 30, 2021, and thereafter 6% payable in kind and 2% payable in cash in arrears on June 30 and December 31 of each year, beginning on June 30, 2023 (each, a “Cash Dividend Payment Date”). Dividends payable in kind will be cumulative and will be added to the Accrued Value. The Series A Preferred Stock will also participate, on an as-converted basis (without regard to conversion limitations) in all dividends paid to the holders of Common Stock. If the Company fails to declare and pay full cash dividend payments as required by the Certificate of Designations for two consecutive Cash Dividend Payment Dates, the cash dividend rate then in effect shall increase one time by 2%, retroactive to the first day of the semiannual period immediately preceding the first Cash Dividend Payment Date at which the Company failed to pay such accrued cash dividends, until such failure to pay full cash dividends is cured (at which time the dividend rate shall return to the rate prior to such increase).

Redemption Put Right

At any time on or after the sixth anniversary of the Closing Date, holders of the Series A Preferred Stock will have the right to cause the Company to redeem all or any portion of the Series A Preferred Stock in cash at an amount equal to the greater of (i) 135% of the Accrued Value per share as of the redemption date (the “Redemption Date”), plus accrued and unpaid PIK dividends that have not yet been added to the Accrued Value and (ii) the amount per share that would be payable on an as-converted basis on such Series A Preferred Stock at the then-current Accrued Value, plus accrued and unpaid PIK dividends that have not yet been added to the Accrued Value, and in either case of (i) or (ii) plus any unpaid cash dividends that would have otherwise been settled in cash in connection with such conversion (the greater of (i) and (ii), the “Redemption Price”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company shall not be required to redeem any shares of Series A Preferred Stock to the extent the Company does not have legally available funds to effect such redemption; provided, that if the Company fails to redeem any shares of the Series A Preferred Stock when required for any reason, then beginning on the designated Redemption Date the cash dividend rate will increase 2% on each Dividend Payment Date until the redemption is effected in full. “Accrued Value” means the sum of the Stated Value per share plus, on each Dividend Payment Date, on a cumulative basis, all accrued PIK dividends on such share that have not previously compounded and been added to the Accrued Value.

Redemption Call Right

At any time on or after the sixth anniversary of the Closing Date, the Company will have the right (but not the obligation) to redeem out of legally available funds and for cash consideration all (but not less than all) of the Series A Preferred Stock upon at least 30 days prior written notice at an amount equal to the Redemption Price.

Conversion Rights

The Series A Preferred Stock will be convertible, at any time after May 31, 2021, into Common Stock at a conversion rate equal to (i) the Accrued Value plus accrued and unpaid PIK dividends that have not yet been added to the Accrued Value of the Series A Preferred Stock, (ii) divided by $90 per share of Common Stock, subject to customary anti-dilution adjustments (the “Initial Conversion Price” and, as adjusted pursuant to the following proviso, the “Conversion Price”); provided, that on May 31, 2021, the Initial Conversion Price will be reset to equal 125% of the volume-weighted average price per share of Common Stock during the 120 consecutive days following January 29, 2021; provided, further, that the adjusted Conversion



Price shall not be less than $50 per share and not more than $90 per share. Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) in the event that the Series A Preferred Stock is converted (other than in connection with a Change of Control (as defined below) or liquidation as described below) by the Investor or any of its transferees (other than a transferee in connection with a bona fide margin or non-purpose loan) prior to March 20, 2024 (the “Test Date”), and the Market Value (as defined below) of the Common Stock issuable upon such conversion would be in excess of the Accrued Value immediately prior to such conversion, then the Company shall only be required to deliver Common Stock having a Market Value that is no greater than the Accrued Value, plus accrued and unpaid PIK dividends that have not yet been added to the Accrued Value, of the Series A Preferred Stock and a cash payment of any unpaid cash dividends, and will have no further obligation or (ii) in the event that the Series A Preferred Stock is converted by a transferee in connection with a bona fide margin or non-purpose loan prior to the Test Date and the Market Value of a share of Common Stock issuable upon such conversion would be in excess of 160% of the then-current Conversion Price, then the Company shall only be required to deliver Common Stock with a Market Value equal to the greater of (A) (x) the Accrued Value plus accrued and unpaid PIK dividends that have not yet been added to the Accrued Value divided (y) by $90, and (B) (x) the Accrued Value plus accrued and unpaid PIK dividends that have not yet been added to the Accrued Value divided by (y) the Permitted Loan Adjusted Conversion Price, and, in the case of either (A) or (B), a cash payment of any unpaid cash dividends, and the Company will have no further obligation. “Market Value” means the average of the closing price of the Common Stock for the five trading days preceding the date of conversion. “Permitted Loan Adjusted Conversion Price” shall mean an amount equal to CP1 based on the formula set forth in the immediately below paragraph for a Test Date Conversion Price Reset; provided, however that, solely for purposes of this definition, the “Test Price” in such formula shall be replaced with an amount equal to the Market Value.

Further, on the Test Date, if the volume-weighted average price per share of Common Stock for the 20 consecutive trading day period ending on the day prior to the Test Date (the “Test Price”) is in excess of 160% of then-current Conversion Price, then on the Test Date, the Conversion Price will be adjusted pursuant to the following formula (the “Test Date Conversion Price Reset”):

CP1 = AV / ( ( AS x ( AV / CP0 ) ) / TP )
where:
CP0 = the Conversion Price in effect on the close of business on the day prior to the Test Date
CP1 = the new Conversion Price in effect immediately after the close of business on the day prior to the Test Date
AS = equals the sum of the Dilution Threshold Amount plus the Incremental Value
AV = the sum of the Accrued Value plus the accrued PIK dividends that have not been added to the Accrued Value as of the close of business on the day prior to the Test Date
TP = the Test Price

For purposes of the above formula:
Dilution Threshold Amount” means an amount equal to CP0 multiplied by 1.6; and
Incremental Value” means an amount equal to the product of (A) the difference of (i) the Test Price minus (ii) the Dilution Threshold Amount, multiplied by (B) a fraction equal to 1/3.

Any conversion will be settled only in shares of Common Stock; provided, that, upon any conversion that would result in the Investor beneficially owning greater than 19.99% of the Company’s voting stock outstanding as of the Closing Date or Common Stock in excess of the maximum number of shares of Common Stock that could be issued to the Investor without triggering a change of control under the Nasdaq rules, the excess, if any, of the conversion consideration otherwise payable upon such conversion shall be paid in cash, based on an amount per share of Common Stock equal to the last reported price per share of the Common Stock on the trading day immediately preceding the conversion date.

Voting Rights

The Series A Preferred Stock will vote on an as-converted basis and will vote together with Common Stock as a single class on all matters submitted to a vote of the holders of the Common Stock (subject to certain voting limitations and conversion calculations set forth in the Certificate of Designations). The Series A Preferred Stock will have one vote per share on any matter on which the holders of the Series A Preferred Stock are entitled to vote separately as a class (subject to certain voting limitations).



Rights in the Event of Change of Control

In the event of (i) any person or group (other than the Investor and its affiliates) acquiring more than 50% of the voting power of the Company’s voting equity, (ii) a sale, transfer, conveyance, lease, exclusive license or other disposition of all or substantially all of the consolidated assets of the Company or (iii) a merger, consolidation or similar transaction consummated by the Company in which the Common Stock is converted into equity securities in another entity, subject to certain exceptions (a “Change of Control”), the holders of the Series A Preferred Stock will have the right to cause the Company to repurchase, out of legally available funds and following the payment of any required amounts under any existing credit facilities, all or any portion of the Series A Preferred Stock in cash (in the case of clause (a)) or the applicable consideration (in the case of clause (b)) at an amount per share equal to, at the holder’s election, (a) the sum of the Accrued Value plus accrued and unpaid PIK dividends multiplied by 135% plus any accrued and unpaid cash dividends or (b) the amount of cash and/or other assets that would be payable to such holder in the Change of Control had such holder, immediately prior to such Change of Control, converted such shares of Series A Preferred Stock into Common Stock, including any accrued and unpaid cash dividends that would otherwise be settled in cash pursuant to such conversion (the “Change of Control Put”). If the Company fails to pay the full repurchase amount due to the holder exercising the Change of Control Put pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Certificate of Designations, the then-current cash dividend rate will increase 2% on each semiannual Dividend Payment Date following the date that such repurchase amount was due, accruing daily from such date the repurchase amount was due until the date that such repurchase amount plus all accrued and unpaid PIK and cash dividends thereon are paid in full.

Upon the occurrence of a Change of Control and any holder of the Series A Preferred Stock has not elected to exercise the Change of Control Put with respect to any outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock, the Company shall have the option to purchase all, but not less than all, of the then outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock for which any holder of the Series A Preferred Stock has not elected to exercise the Change of Control Put, at a purchase price per share of Series A Preferred Stock, payable in cash (in the case of clause (a)) or the applicable consideration (in the case of clause (b)), equal to the greater of (a) the sum of the Accrued Value plus accrued and unpaid PIK dividends multiplied by 140% plus any accrued and unpaid cash dividends or (b) the amount of cash and/or other assets that would be payable to such holder in the Change of Control had such holder, immediately prior to such Change of Control, converted such shares of Series A Preferred Stock into Common Stock, including any accrued and unpaid cash dividends that would otherwise be settled in cash pursuant to such conversion, subject to certain additional conditions and exceptions.

Liquidation Rights

In the event of any voluntary or involuntary liquidation, winding up or dissolution of the Company (other than in connection with a Change of Control as set forth above) (“Liquidation Event”), the holders of the Series A Preferred Stock will be entitled, out of legally available assets, before any distribution out of the assets of the Company may be made to the Common Stock, and subject to the rights of the Company’s existing and future creditors, to receive in cash at an amount per share of Series A Preferred Stock equal to the greater of (a) the amount such holder would have received had such holder converted such shares of Series A Preferred Stock into Common Stock immediately prior to such Liquidation Event and (b) the sum of the Accrued Value plus accrued and unpaid PIK dividends that have not yet been added to the Accrued Value and any accrued and unpaid cash dividends.

Mandatory Conversion of the Series A Preferred Stock

At any time on or after the third anniversary of the Closing Date, if the volume-weighted average price per share of the Common Stock is 167.5% of the Conversion Price for 20 consecutive trading days in a 30-day trading day period, the Company will have the right to convert all, but not less than all, of the Series A Preferred Stock into Common Stock at the then applicable Conversion Price.

Ranking

The Series A Preferred Stock will rank senior to all other equity securities of the Company with respect to dividend rights and rights on liquidation.

INVESTMENT AGREEMENT
This INVESTMENT AGREEMENT (this “Agreement”), dated as of February 17, 2021, is by and among eHealth, Inc., a Delaware corporation (together with any successor or assign pursuant to Section 6.07, the “Company”), and Echelon Health SPV, LP, a Delaware limited partnership (together with its successors and any respective Affiliates thereof that become a Purchaser party hereto in accordance with Section 4.02 and Section 6.07, each, a “Purchaser”).

Assuming the accuracy of the representations and warranties set forth in Article III in all respects as of the date of this Agreement, no event has occurred that, with notice or lapse of time or both, would, or would reasonably be expected to, constitute a default or breach on the part of the Purchaser or Equity Providers pursuant to the Equity Commitment Letter. Subject to the Company’s compliance with this Agreement and the satisfaction (or waiver) of the conditions set forth in Section 2.02(c), as of the date hereof, the Purchaser has no reason to believe that it will be unable to satisfy on a timely basis any term or condition of the Equity Financing to be satisfied by it, whether or not such term or condition is contained in the Equity Commitment Letter. As of the date of the Closing the Purchaser has fully paid, or caused to be fully paid, all commitment or other fees that are due and payable on or prior to the date hereof, in each case pursuant to and in accordance with the terms of the Equity Commitment Letter.
(h)No Additional Representations.
(i)The Purchaser acknowledges that the Company does not make any representation or warranty as to any matter whatsoever except as expressly set forth in Section 3.01 and in any certificate delivered by the Company pursuant to this Agreement, and specifically (but without limiting the generality of the foregoing), that, except as expressly set forth in Section 3.01 and in any certificate delivered by the Company pursuant to this Agreement, the Company makes no representation or warranty with respect to (A) any matters relating to the Company, its business, financial condition, results of operations, prospects or otherwise, (B) any projections, estimates or budgets delivered or made available to the Purchaser (or any of its Affiliates, officers, directors, employees or other representatives) of future revenues, results of operations (or any component thereof), cash flows or financial condition (or any component thereof) of the Company and its Subsidiaries or (C) the future business and operations of the Company and its Subsidiaries, and the Purchaser has not relied on or been induced by such information or any other representations or warranties (whether express or implied or made orally or in writing) not expressly set forth in Section 3.01 and in any certificate delivered by the Company pursuant to this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this Section 3.02(h)(i) or elsewhere in this Agreement shall limit any claims based on fraud.
(ii)The Purchaser has conducted its own independent review and analysis of the business, operations, assets, liabilities, results of operations, financial condition and prospects of the Company and its Subsidiaries and acknowledges the Purchaser has been provided with sufficient access for such purposes.

35
4840-5838-5626.18


certificate delivered by the Company pursuant to this Agreement, (i) no person has been authorized by the Company to make any representation or warranty relating to itself or its business or otherwise in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby, and if made, such representation or warranty must not be relied upon by the Purchaser as having been authorized by the Company and (ii) any estimates, projections, predictions, data, financial information, memoranda, presentations or any other materials or information provided or addressed to the Purchaser or any of its Affiliates or representatives are not and shall not be deemed to be or include representations or warranties of the Company unless any such materials or information are the subject of any express representation or warranty set forth in Section 3.01 of this Agreement and in any certificate delivered by the Company pursuant to this Agreement.

4840-5838-5626.18


(f)In the event that the Auditor determines that consummation of the Transactions will result in the Auditor failing to be considered independent, or otherwise disqualify the Auditor from continuing to serve as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, under the rules and regulations of the SEC or the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, the Company shall request that the Auditor seek regulatory relief, waiver or confirmation, as applicable, from the SEC, confirming that the SEC would not object to the Auditor continuing to serve as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm following the Transaction. In such event, the Purchaser and the Company shall cooperate and take, or cause to be taken, all actions commercially reasonably necessary, and do, or cause to be done, and assist and cooperate with the Auditor in doing, all things reasonably necessary, proper or advisable to receive such regulatory relief, waiver or confirmation with respect to any failure of the Auditor to be considered independent or otherwise any potential disqualification of the Auditor from continuing to serve as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm under the rules and regulations of the SEC or the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board; provided, however, nothing in this Section 4.01(f) shall require Purchaser or its Affiliates to sell, divest, convey, hold separate, or otherwise limit its freedom of action with respect to any assets, rights, products, licenses, businesses, operations, or interest therein of any Affiliates or any direct or indirect portfolio companies of investment funds advised or managed by one or more Affiliates of the Purchaser or such Affiliate of Purchaser who becomes a party hereto, or require any direct or indirect portfolio companies of investment funds advised or managed by one or more Affiliates of the Purchaser to take or omit to take any action (or for Purchaser or any of its Affiliates to cause them take or omit to take any such action), in each case, in connection with such regulatory relief or waiver.
Section 4.02.Restricted Period; Non-Conversion.
(a)During the Restricted Period, notwithstanding any rights provided in Article V, each H.I.G. Investor shall not, without the Company’s prior written consent, directly or indirectly, (x) sell, offer, transfer, assign, mortgage, hypothecate, gift, pledge or dispose of, or enter into, or agree to enter into, any contract, option or other arrangement or understanding with respect to the sale, transfer, pledge, mortgage, hypothecation, gift, assignment or similar disposition of (any of the foregoing, a “transfer”), any shares of Series A Preferred Stock acquired pursuant to this Agreement or any shares of Company Common Stock issuable or issued upon conversion of shares of Series A Preferred Stock or (y) enter into or engage in any hedge, swap, short sale, derivative transaction or other agreement or arrangement that transfers to any Third Party, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, any aspect of ownership of any shares of Series A Preferred Stock acquired pursuant to this Agreement or any shares of Company Common Stock issuable or issued upon conversion of any shares of Series A Preferred Stock (such actions in clauses (x) and (y), “Prohibited Transfers”), other than Permitted Transfers. “Permitted Transfers,” shall mean any (i) transfer to any Person in the H.I.G. Group that executes and delivers to the Company a Joinder pursuant to which such Person becomes a Purchaser party to this Agreement and the Confidentiality Agreement and a duly completed and executed IRS Form W-9 (or a substantially equivalent form, including an applicable Form W-8), (ii) transfer to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, including in connection with the conversion of any shares of Series A Preferred Stock, (iii) transfer to a Third Party for cash solely to the extent that all of the net proceeds of such sale are solely used to satisfy a bona fide margin call (i.e., posted as collateral) pursuant to a Permitted Loan, or
38

repay a Permitted Loan to the extent necessary to satisfy a bona fide margin call on such Permitted Loan or avoid a bona fide margin call on such Permitted Loan, (iv) transfer with the prior written consent of the Company, (v) tender of any shares of Series A Preferred Stock or Company Common Stock into an Applicable Tender/Exchange Offer, as defined below (and any related conversion of shares of Series A Preferred Stock to the extent required to effect such tender or exchange), and any transfer effected pursuant to any merger, consolidation or similar transaction consummated by the Company (for the avoidance of doubt, if such Applicable Tender/Exchange Offer does not close for any reason, the restrictions on transfer contained herein shall continue to apply to any shares of Series A Preferred Stock or Company Common Stock received pursuant to the conversion of any shares of Series A Preferred Stock that had previously been converted to participate in any such tender or exchange offer), or (vi) any transfer by a limited partner or other investor of any private equity fund sponsored by an H.I.G. Affiliate. “Applicable Tender/Exchange Offer” shall mean any (x) tender or exchange offer made to all of the holders of Company Common Stock by a Third Party for a number of outstanding shares of Voting Stock that, if consummated, would result in a Change in Control solely to the extent that the Board of Directors has not recommended against such tender or exchange offer within the date that is ten (10) Business Days after the date that such tender or exchange offer is made, or (y) any tender or exchange offer by or on behalf of the Company. Any purported Prohibited Transfer in violation of this Section 4.02 shall be null and void ab initio, shall not be recorded on the books of the Company or its transfer agent and shall not be recognized by the Company. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Purchaser (or a controlled Affiliate of the Purchaser) shall be permitted to mortgage, hypothecate, and/or pledge any shares of Series A Preferred Stock acquired pursuant to this Agreement and/or the shares of Company Common Stock issuable or issued upon conversion of any shares of Series A Preferred Stock in respect of one or more bona fide purpose (margin) or bona fide non-purpose loans for the benefit of a lender that is not an Affiliate of any member of the H.I.G. Group (each, a “Permitted Loan”). Except with the Company’s prior written consent, any Permitted Loan entered into by the Purchaser or its controlled Affiliates shall be with one or more financial institutions and, subject to applicable securities laws, nothing contained in this Agreement shall prohibit or otherwise restrict the ability of any lender (or its securities’ affiliate) or collateral agent or trustee to foreclose upon and sell, dispose of or otherwise transfer any shares of Series A Preferred Stock and/or shares of Company Common Stock (including shares of Company Common Stock received upon conversion of shares of Series A Preferred Stock following foreclosure on a Permitted Loan) mortgaged, hypothecated and/or pledged to secure the obligations of the borrower following an event of default under a Permitted Loan. Notwithstanding the foregoing or anything to the contrary herein, but subject to applicable securities laws, in the event that any lender or other creditor under a Permitted Loan transaction (including any agent or trustee on their behalf) or any affiliate of the foregoing exercises any rights or remedies in respect of any shares of Series A Preferred Stock or shares of Company Common Stock issuable or issued upon conversion of any shares of Series A Preferred Stock or any other collateral for any Permitted Loan, no lender, creditor, agent or trustee on their behalf or affiliate of any of the foregoing (other than, for the avoidance of doubt, the Purchaser or any of its Affiliates) shall be entitled to any rights (including, without limitation, the rights or benefits provided for in Section 4.06) or have any obligations or be subject to any transfer restrictions or limitations hereunder except and to the extent for
39
4840-5838-5626.18


those expressly provided for in Article V, but shall be subject to the limitations set forth in the Certificate of Designations and applicable securities laws.
(b)Notwithstanding Section 4.02(a), the H.I.G. Investors will not at any time, directly or indirectly (without the prior written consent of the Board of Directors, to be provided in its sole and absolute discretion) transfer any shares of Series A Preferred Stock or shares of Company Common Stock issuable or issued upon conversion of any shares of Series A Preferred Stock to any Prohibited Transferee; provided, however, that this Section 4.02(b) shall not restrict any transfer (x) indirectly of any shares of Company Common Stock as a result of any passive investment by a Prohibited Transferee as a limited partner in an H.I.G. Affiliated Fund, (y) of shares of Company Common Stock underlying the Preferred Stock into the public market pursuant to an Underwritten Offering or a bona fide, broadly distributed firm commitment offering to one or more broker-dealers for resale under Rule 144A and/or Regulation S of the Securities Act or a sale to a broker-dealer under Rule 144 of the Securities Act or (z) to any foreclosure upon or sale, disposition or other transfer of any shares of Series A Preferred Stock or shares of Company Common Stock (including shares of Company Common Stock received upon conversion of shares of Series A Preferred Stock following foreclosure) mortgaged, hypothecated and/or pledged to secure the obligations of the borrower following an event of default or any other event or occurrence enabling any such lender to exercise rights or remedies under a Permitted Loan.
Section 4.03.Standstill.
(a)The Purchaser agrees that, during the Standstill Period, it shall not, and it shall cause each of its Affiliates and Associates, which, for the avoidance of doubt shall include any H.I.G. Observer (collectively and individually, the “Purchaser Affiliates”) not to, directly or indirectly, in any manner, alone or in concert with others, take any of the following actions without the prior consent of the Company (acting through a resolution of a majority of the Company’s directors not including, in respect of any consent to actions taken or proposed to be taken by the Purchaser or its Affiliates, any H.I.G. Affiliated Director):
(i)make, engage in, or in any way participate in, directly or indirectly, any “solicitation” of proxies (as such terms are used in the proxy rules of the SEC but without regard to the exclusion set forth in Rule 14a-1(l)(2)(iv)) or consents to vote, or seek to advise, encourage or influence any person with respect to the voting of any securities of the Company for the election of individuals to the Board of Directors or to approve any proposals submitted to a vote of the stockholders of the Company that have not been authorized and approved, or recommended for approval, by the Board of Directors, or become a “participant” in any contested “solicitation” (as such terms are defined or used under the Exchange Act) for the election of directors with respect to the Company, other than a “solicitation” or acting as a “participant” in support of all of the nominees of the Board of Directors at any stockholder meeting, or make or be the proponent of any stockholder proposal (pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Exchange Act or otherwise);
(ii)form, join, encourage, influence, advise or in any way participate in any “group” (as such term is defined in Section 13(d)(3) of the Exchange Act) with any persons who are not Purchaser Affiliates with respect to any securities of the Company or otherwise in any manner agree, attempt, seek or propose to deposit
40
4840-5838-5626.18


any securities of the Company or any securities convertible or exchangeable into or exercisable for any such securities in any voting trust or similar arrangement, or subject any securities of the Company to any arrangement or agreement with respect to the voting thereof, except as expressly permitted by this Agreement;
(iii)acquire, offer or propose to acquire, or agree to acquire, directly or indirectly, whether by purchase, tender or exchange offer, through the acquisition of control of another person, by joining a partnership, limited partnership, syndicate or other group (including any group of persons that would be treated as a single “person” under Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act), through swap or hedging transactions or otherwise, any securities of the Company or any rights decoupled from the underlying securities that would result in the Purchaser (together with the Purchaser Affiliates) having Beneficial Ownership of more than 19.99% in the aggregate of the shares of Company Common Stock outstanding at such time (assuming that all of the Preferred Stock are converted into Company Common Stock), excluding any issuance by the Company of shares of Company Common Stock or options, warrants or other rights to acquire Company Common Stock (or the exercise thereof) to any H.I.G. Affiliated Director as compensation for their membership on the Board of Directors. For the avoidance of doubt, this Section 4.03(a) shall not restrict (A) the conversion of the shares of Preferred Stock into Company Common Stock or (B) any issuance of Company Equity Securities pursuant to terms of this Agreement or the Certificate of Designations. Nothing in this Section 4.03(a) will prevent the Purchaser from making proposals to acquire securities of the Company if the Purchaser does not make any public announcement or disclosure of such proposal and such proposal would not reasonably be expected to require public announcement or disclosure by the Company or the Purchaser. For purposes of this Section 4.03(a), no securities Beneficially Owned by a portfolio company of the Purchaser or its Affiliates will be deemed to be Beneficially Owned by the Purchaser or any of its Affiliates so long as (x) such portfolio company is not an Affiliate of the Purchaser for purposes of this Agreement, (y) neither the Purchaser nor any of the Purchaser Affiliates has encouraged, instructed, directed, supported, assisted or advised, or coordinated with, such portfolio company with respect to the acquisition, voting or disposition of securities of the Company by the portfolio company and (z) neither the Purchaser or any of its Affiliates is a member of a group (as such term is defined in Section 13(d)(3) of the Exchange Act) with that portfolio company with respect to any securities of the Company; or
(iv)enter into any discussions, negotiations, agreements or understandings with any Third Party with respect to any of the foregoing, or advise, assist, knowingly encourage or seek to persuade any Third Party to take any action or make any statement with respect to any of the foregoing.

(b)Nothing in this Section 4.03 shall limit any action that may be taken by any H.I.G. Affiliated Director acting solely as a director of the Company consistent with his fiduciary duties as a director of the Company.
41
4840-5838-5626.18


(c)The provisions of Section 4.03(a) shall not be deemed to prohibit the Purchaser or any Purchaser Affiliates or their respective directors, executive officers, partners, employees, managing members, advisors or agents (acting in such capacity) from communicating privately with the Company’s directors, officers or advisors so long as such communications are not intended to, and would not reasonably be expected to, require any public disclosure of such communications.
(d)The restrictions set forth in Section 4.03(a) shall terminate and be of no further force and effect on the earlier to occur of (i) the date of announcement that the Company has entered into a binding definitive agreement that has been approved by the Board of Directors providing for a transaction that, if consummated, would result in a Change in Control and (ii) the date that is 10 Business Days after the date that any Third Party commences any tender or exchange offer made to all of the holders of Company Common Stock by a Third Party for a number of outstanding shares of Voting Stock that, if consummated, would result in a Change in Control; provided, that with respect to this clause (ii), only if the Board of Directors has not recommended against such tender or exchange offer in a Schedule 14D-9 under the Exchange Act (clause (i) or (ii) of this sentence, as applicable, the “Standstill Period Fall-Away Date”). In furtherance of the foregoing, beginning on the Standstill Period Fall-Away Date, nothing in Section 4.03(a) will prevent the Purchaser or any Purchaser Affiliate (A) from submitting to the Board of Directors one or more bona fide proposals or offers for an alternative transaction involving, directly or indirectly, the Purchaser or one or more of Purchaser Affiliates, (B) pursuing and entering into any such alternative transaction with the Company and (C) taking any actions in furtherance of the foregoing, including actions relating to obtaining equity and/or debt financing for the alternative transaction as long as (x) any proposal or offer is conditioned on the proposed transaction being approved by the Board of Directors and (y) the Purchaser and the Purchaser Affiliates do not make any public announcement or disclosure of such proposal, offer or actions other than any filings and disclosures that may be required in filings with the SEC.
Section 4.04.Securities Laws. The Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that, as of the Closing Date, the shares of Series A Preferred Stock (and the shares of Company Common Stock that are issuable upon conversion of any shares of Series A Preferred Stock) have not been registered under the Securities Act or under any state or other applicable securities laws and that they may be sold or otherwise disposed of only in one or more transactions registered under the Securities Act and, where applicable, such laws, or as to which an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and, where applicable, such laws, is available. The Purchaser acknowledges that, except as provided in Article V with respect to shares of Company Common Stock and Series A Preferred Stock, the Purchaser has no right to require the Company or any of its Subsidiaries to register the Series A Preferred Stock or the shares of Company Common Stock that are issuable upon conversion of any shares of Series A Preferred Stock.
Section 4.05.Legend; Lost, Stolen, Destroyed or Mutilated Securities.
(a)All certificates or other instruments representing the Series A Preferred Stock or Company Common Stock issued upon conversion of the Series A Preferred Stock will bear a legend substantially to the following effect:
42
4840-5838-5626.18


THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS INSTRUMENT HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, OR THE SECURITIES LAWS OF ANY STATE AND MAY NOT BE TRANSFERRED, SOLD OR OTHERWISE DISPOSED OF EXCEPT WHILE A REGISTRATION STATEMENT RELATING THERETO IS IN EFFECT UNDER SUCH ACT AND APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS OR PURSUANT TO AN EXEMPTION FROM REGISTRATION UNDER SUCH ACT OR SUCH LAWS.
THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE ARE SUBJECT TO TRANSFER AND OTHER RESTRICTIONS SET FORTH IN AN INVESTMENT AGREEMENT, DATED AS OF FEBRUARY 17, 2021, COPIES OF WHICH ARE ON FILE WITH THE SECRETARY OF THE ISSUER
(b)Upon request of the Purchaser, upon receipt by the Company of an opinion of counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Company to the effect that such legend is no longer required under the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws, the Company shall take commercially reasonable efforts to cause the Company’s transfer agent to remove the first paragraph of the legend from any certificate for any Series A Preferred Stock or Company Common Stock to be transferred in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and upon request of the Purchaser, the Company shall take commercially reasonable efforts to cause the Company’s transfer agent to remove the second paragraph of the legend following the expiration of such transfer and other restrictions set forth in this Agreement (and, for the avoidance of doubt, immediately prior to any termination of this Agreement).
(c)Upon receipt of evidence satisfactory to the Company of the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of any certificate for any security of the Company and, in the case of loss, theft or destruction, upon delivery of an undertaking by the holder thereof to indemnify the Company (and, if requested by the Company, the delivery of an indemnity bond sufficient in the judgment of the Company to protect the Company from any loss it may suffer if a certificate is replaced), or, in the case of mutilation, upon surrender and cancellation thereof, the Company will issue a new certificate or, at the Company’s option, a share ownership statement representing such securities for an equivalent number of shares or another security of like tenor, as the case may be.
Section 4.06.Board Nomination Rights.
(a)The Company agrees, effective immediately following the Closing, (i) to appoint one (1) initial H.I.G. Designee (the “Initial H.I.G. Designee”) selected in accordance with Section 4.06(c) to the Board of Directors (such H.I.G. Designee to be appointed as a Class I director in the Class of directors whose term expires at the 2022 annual meeting of the Company’s stockholders, with the appointment of the H.I.G. Designee as a Class I director causing such Class to be comprised of three (3) directors taking into account the H.I.G. Designee), and (ii) to take all necessary action following the Closing to increase the size of the Board of Directors unless there otherwise is a vacancy in the Board of Directors and in either
43
4840-5838-5626.18


event filling the vacancy thereby created with such individual as soon as practicable after the Closing. Subject to the last two sentences of this Section 4.06(a), upon any Event of Default pursuant to Section 4.12(b), the Company further agrees to appoint one (1) additional H.I.G. Designee (for a total of two (2) H.I.G. Designees) (the “Additional H.I.G. Designee”) selected in accordance with Section 4.06(c) (such H.I.G. Designee to be appointed to the class of directors with (a) the fewest number of director seats, or (b) if more than one class has an equal number of seats that is less than the number of seats in the largest class, then the class of directors with the longest then current term remaining, in either case by taking all necessary action to increase the size of the Board of Directors unless there otherwise is a vacancy in the Board of Directors and in either event filling the vacancy thereby created with such individual as soon as practicable after such Event of Default). The Company agrees that, subject to Section 4.06(c), the Purchaser shall have the right to nominate at each annual meeting of the stockholders of the Company at which an H.I.G. Designee’s term as a director expires (or, if the stockholders of the Company fail to elect an H.I.G. Designee standing for election to the Board of Directors, the next annual meeting of the Company’s stockholders at which directors are nominated for election) an individual, to stand for election as a director of the Company (which individual will, upon election, be such H.I.G. Designee); provided, however, nothing herein shall be interpreted to require the Company to reconstitute the classes of the Board of Directors, take any action that would cause the seats of the classes of the Board of Directors to be unequal or less than as nearly equal as possible, or otherwise replace or remove a then-existing director to accommodate such H.I.G. Designee. The Purchaser shall have a right to nominate the Initial H.I.G. Designee until such time as the H.I.G. Group no longer satisfies the Minimum Ownership Threshold, and, subject to the last two sentences of this Section 4.06(a), shall have the right to nominate the Additional H.I.G. Designee to the Board of Directors for so long as the Purchaser retains such right pursuant to Section 4.12(b) and until such time as the H.I.G. Group no longer satisfies the Minimum Ownership Threshold. Upon ceasing to satisfy the Minimum Ownership Threshold or ceasing to retain the right to appoint the Additional H.I.G. Designee pursuant to Section 4.12(b) (with respect to the Additional H.I.G. Designee), as applicable, the Purchaser shall cause each applicable H.I.G. Designee(s) to offer his or her resignation to the Board of Directors and upon taking office, the Purchaser shall cause each H.I.G. Designee to execute an irrevocable resignation effective upon acceptance by the Board of Directors under such circumstances. Further, after the Closing, the Company shall promptly appoint one (1) H.I.G. Affiliated Director to each standing committee of the Board of Directors (for up to three (3) of such committees total, with such committees to be chosen by the Purchaser) upon the request of the Purchaser or such H.I.G. Affiliated Director, subject in each case to the fiduciary duties of the Board of Directors and meeting the applicable requirements for service on such committee as set forth in the listing rules of NASDAQ, the rules and regulations promulgated under the Exchange Act, the Company’s corporate governance guidelines or policies applicable to such committee (including, without limitation, guidelines or policies covering conflict of interest, confidentiality and insider trading matters) and such committee’s charter. For so long as the Purchaser has the right to nominate one or more H.I.G. Designees to the Board of Directors pursuant to Section 4.06, if at any time any H.I.G. Designee has not been appointed to the Board of Directors for any reason (including as a result of a failure of the stockholders to elect any H.I.G. Designee standing for election to the Board of Directors, as a result of the H.I.G. Investors having Beneficial Ownership of less than the Board Right Ownership Threshold, or otherwise), then the Purchaser may designate one (1)
44
4840-5838-5626.18


H.I.G. Designee as an observer (an “H.I.G. Observer”) to the Board of Directors for so long as, and until, all such H.I.G. Designees are elected to the Board of Directors. Purchaser shall cause any such H.I.G. Observer to be bound by Section 4.17 of this Agreement and the Company hereby reserves the right to withhold any information and to exclude any H.I.G. Observer from any meeting or portion thereof if access to such information or attendance at such meeting could adversely affect the attorney-client privilege between the Company and its counsel or result in disclosure of trade secrets, highly confidential information or a conflict of interest. For purposes of this Section 4.06, the “Board Right Ownership Threshold” shall mean that the H.I.G. Investors Beneficially Own a number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock that entitle such H.I.G. Investors to a number of votes pursuant to Section 13(a) of the Certificate of Designations greater than that number of shares of Company Common Stock equal to the product of (x) the ratio of (i) the number of H.I.G. Designees the Purchaser is entitled to nominate to the Board of Directors pursuant to this Agreement as of such time divided by (ii) the total number of directors then serving on the Board of Directors multiplied by (y) the total number of shares of Company Common Stock then-outstanding.
(b)Subject to the terms and conditions of this Section 4.06 and applicable law, for so long as the Purchaser shall have the right to nominate an H.I.G. Designee pursuant to Section 4.06(a), the Company agrees to include each H.I.G. Designee, in its slate of nominees for election as directors of the Company at each of the Company’s annual meetings of stockholders at which such H.I.G. Designee’s term as a director expires (or, if the stockholders of the Company fail to elect any H.I.G. Designee standing for election to the Board of Directors, the next annual meeting of the Company’s stockholders at which directors are nominated for election; provided, however, nothing herein shall be interpreted to require the Company to reconstitute the classes of the Board of Directors, take any action that would cause the seats of the classes of the Board of Directors to be unequal or less than as nearly equal as possible or otherwise replace or remove a then-existing director to accommodate such H.I.G. Designee if more than one class has an equal number of seats that is less than the number of seats in the largest class) and to use its commercially reasonable efforts to cause the election of each such H.I.G. Designee to the Board of Directors (for the avoidance of doubt, the Company will be required to use substantially the same level of efforts and provide substantially the same level of support as is used and/or provided for the other director nominees of the Company with respect to the applicable annual meeting of stockholders). For the avoidance of doubt, failure of the stockholders of the Company to elect any H.I.G. Designee to the Board of Directors shall not affect the right of the Purchaser to nominate directors for election pursuant to this Section 4.06 in any future election of directors at an annual meeting of the stockholders; provided, however, in no event shall the Company be required to reconstitute the classes of the Board of Directors, take any action that would cause the seats of the classes of the Board of Directors to be unequal or less than as nearly equal as possible or otherwise replace or remove a then-existing director to accommodate such H.I.G. Designee. For their services to the Company, each H.I.G. Affiliated Director shall receive compensation from the Company that is consistent (in the aggregate amount and structure of the compensation package as well as the opportunities to participate in benefit plans) with the compensation for other non-employee directors of the Company. Further, in accordance with the Company’s expense reimbursement policy applicable to all members of the Board of Directors, the Company shall reimburse each H.I.G. Designee for its reasonable, documented out-of-pocket fees, costs, expenses and
45
4840-5838-5626.18


disbursements in connection with attending meetings of the Board of Directors and of its committees or in the performance of services as requested by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries. Each H.I.G. Designee must satisfy the requirements set forth in the Company’s Corporate Governance Guidelines, Code of Business Conduct and Insider Trading Policy (subject to Section 4.02), in each case as currently in effect, and any additional policies applicable to directors or related to director services as adopted from time to time by the Board of Directors or any committee thereof (the “Specified Guidelines”) with such changes thereto (or such successor policies) as are applicable to all other directors, as are adopted in good faith by the Board of Directors or any committee or subcommittee thereof and do not by their terms adversely impact any H.I.G. Designee relative to all other directors and as are consistent with clause (d) below. For the avoidance of doubt, no H.I.G. Designee shall be required to qualify as an independent director under applicable stock exchange rules and federal securities laws and regulations; provided, however, if a H.I.G. Designee does not qualify as independent, such H.I.G. Designee shall not serve on any committee of the Board of Directors if such service violates applicable stock exchange rules, federal securities laws and regulations, or the Specified Guidelines.
(c)Each H.I.G. Designee must be either (i) an employee of H.I.G. Middle Market LLC, H.I.G. Middle Market Advisors LLC or another H.I.G. Affiliate or (ii) another individual selected by the Purchaser that is approved by the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of the Board of Directors (or any successor thereto), acting reasonably and in accordance with such directors’ fiduciary duties. In connection with each H.I.G. Designee’s appointment to the Board of Directors and nomination for election as a director of the Company, the Purchaser and each H.I.G. Designee must in all material respects provide to the Company (1) all information reasonably requested by the Company that is required to be or customarily disclosed for directors, candidates for directors, and their affiliates and representatives in a proxy statement or other filings under applicable law or regulation or stock exchange rules or listing standards, in each case, relating to their nomination or election as a director of the Company or the Company’s operations in the ordinary course of business and (2) information reasonably requested by the Company in connection with assessing eligibility, independence and other criteria applicable to directors or satisfying compliance and legal or regulatory obligations, in each case, relating to their nomination or election as a director of the Company or the Company’s operations in the ordinary course of business, with respect to the Purchaser, its Affiliates and the applicable H.I.G. Designee. The Company will make all information requests pursuant to this Section 4.06(c) in good faith in a timely manner that allows the Purchaser and each H.I.G. Designee a reasonable amount of time to provide such information, and will cooperate in good faith with the Purchaser and each H.I.G. Designee in connection with their efforts to provide the requested information. 
(d)For so long as an H.I.G. Affiliated Director is on the Board of Directors, (i) the Company shall not implement or maintain any trading policy, equity ownership guidelines (including with respect to the use of Rule 10b5-1 plans and preclearance or notification to the Company of any trades in the Company’s securities) or similar guideline or policy with respect to the trading of securities of the Company that applies to the Purchaser or its Affiliates (including a policy that limits, prohibits or restricts the Purchaser or its Affiliates from entering into any hedging or derivative arrangements), in each case other than with respect to any H.I.G. Affiliated Director solely in his or her individual capacity, except as provided herein, or that
46
4840-5838-5626.18


imposes confidentiality obligations on any H.I.G. Affiliated Director that are inconsistent with the confidentiality provisions of this Agreement, (ii) any share ownership requirement for any H.I.G. Designee serving on the Board of Directors will be deemed satisfied by the securities owned by the H.I.G. Group and/or its Affiliates and under no circumstances shall any of such policies, procedures, processes, codes, rules, standards and guidelines impose any restrictions on the H.I.G. Group’s or its Affiliates’ transfers of securities pursuant to Article V (except as otherwise provided therein with respect to Blackout Periods) and (iii) under no circumstances shall any policy, procedure, code, rule, standard or guideline applicable to the Board of Directors be violated by any H.I.G. Designee (x) accepting an invitation to serve on another board of directors of a company whose principal line(s) of business do not compete with the principal line(s) of business of the Company or failing to notify an officer or director of the Company prior to doing so, or (y) receiving compensation from the H.I.G. Group or any of its Affiliates (other than criteria for being a member of any given committee or subcommittee of the Board of Directors), or (z) failing to offer his or her resignation from the Board of Directors except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement or pursuant to any majority voting policy adopted by the Board of Directors, and, in each case of (i), (ii) and (iii), it is agreed that any such policies in effect from time to time that purport to impose terms inconsistent with this Section 4.06 shall not apply to the extent inconsistent with this Section 4.06 (but shall otherwise be applicable to the H.I.G. Designee).
(e)Subject to the terms and conditions of this Section 4.06, if a vacancy on the Board of Directors is created as a result of an H.I.G. Designee’s death, resignation, disqualification or removal, in each case for whatever reason, or if the Purchaser desires to nominate a different individual to replace any then-existing H.I.G. Designee, then, at the request of the Purchaser, the Purchaser and the Company (acting through the Board of Directors) shall work together in good faith to fill such vacancy or replace such nominee as promptly as reasonably practical with a replacement H.I.G. Designee subject to the terms and conditions hereof, and thereafter such individual shall as promptly as reasonably practical be appointed to the Board of Directors to fill such vacancy and/or be nominated as a Company nominee as a “H.I.G. Designee” pursuant to this Section 4.06 (as applicable).
(f)To the fullest extent permitted by the DGCL and subject to any express agreement that may from time to time be in effect, the Company agrees that any H.I.G. Affiliated Director, the Purchaser and any other member of the H.I.G. Group or any portfolio company thereof (collectively, “Covered Persons”) may, and shall have no duty not to, (i) invest in, carry on and conduct, whether directly, or as a partner in any partnership, or as a joint venturer in any joint venture, or as an officer, director, stockholder, equityholder or investor in any person, or as a participant in any syndicate, pool, trust or association, any business of any kind, nature or description, whether or not such business is competitive with or in the same or similar lines of business as the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, (ii) do business with any client, customer, vendor or lessor of any of the Company or its Affiliates; and/or (iii) make investments in any kind of property in which the Company may make investments. To the fullest extent permitted by the DGCL, the Company renounces any interest or expectancy to participate in any business or investments of any Covered Person as currently conducted or as may be conducted in the future, and waives any claim against a Covered Person and shall indemnify a Covered Person against any claim that such Covered Person is liable to the Company or its stockholders for breach of any fiduciary duty solely by reason of such person’s
47
4840-5838-5626.18


participation in any such business or investment. The Company shall pay in advance any reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses incurred in defense of any claim for which such Covered Person is, or would reasonably be, expected to be entitled to indemnification under this Section 4.06(f), as provided in this provision, except to the extent that a Covered Person is determined by a final, non-appealable order of a Delaware court having competent jurisdiction (or any other judgment which is not appealed in the applicable time) that such Covered Person is not entitled to indemnification under this Section 4.06(f), in which case the Purchaser shall promptly reimburse to the Company any such advanced expenses.
(g)The Company agrees that in the event that a Covered Person acquires knowledge of a potential transaction or matter which may constitute a corporate opportunity for both (x) the Covered Person and (y) the Company or its Subsidiaries, the Covered Person shall not have any duty to offer or communicate information regarding such corporate opportunity to the Company or its Subsidiaries. To the fullest extent permitted by the DGCL, the Company hereby renounces any interest or expectancy in any potential transaction or matter of which the Covered Person acquires knowledge, except for any corporate opportunity which is expressly presented to a Covered Person solely and expressly in his or her capacity as a member of the Board of Directors, and waives any claim against each Covered Person, and shall indemnify a Covered Person against any Losses incurred by such Covered Person as a result of, arising in connection with or relating to a Covered Person’s breach of any fiduciary duty solely by reason of the fact that such Covered Person, (A) pursues or acquires any corporate opportunity for its own account or the account of any Affiliate or other person, (B) directs, recommends, sells, assigns or otherwise transfers such corporate opportunity to another person or (C) does not communicate information regarding such corporate opportunity to the Company; provided, that, in each such case, that any corporate opportunity which is expressly presented to a Covered Person solely and expressly in his or her capacity as a member of the Board of Directors shall belong to the Company. The Company shall pay in advance any reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses incurred in defense of any claim for which such Covered Person is, or would reasonably be, expected to be entitled to indemnification under this Section 4.06(g), as provided in this provision, except to the extent that a Covered Person is determined by a final, non-appealable order of a Delaware court having competent jurisdiction (or any other judgement which is not appealed in the applicable time) that such Covered Person is not entitled to indemnification under this Section 4.06(g), in which case the Purchaser shall promptly reimburse to the Company any such advanced expenses.
(h)Purchaser shall have no designation or nomination rights hereunder with respect to any H.I.G. Designee if (i) the Company consolidates or merges with or into any Person and the Company Common Stock is, in whole or in part, converted into or exchanged for securities of a different issuer and/or cash in a transaction that will constitute a Change in Control and the shares of Company Common Stock are delisted from NASDAQ (in which case each H.I.G. Designees shall deliver his or her written resignation to the Board of Directors effective as of immediately prior to the effectiveness of such Change in Control), or (ii) the Purchaser, any Purchaser Affiliate or any H.I.G. Designee willfully and materially breaches any of Section 4.02, Section 4.03 or Section 4.17 and, in any such case, each H.I.G. Designee shall promptly offer to resign from the Board of Directors (and, if requested by the Company, promptly deliver his or her written resignation to the Board of Directors (which shall provide for his or her immediate resignation), it being understood that it shall be in the Board of
48
4840-5838-5626.18


Directors’ sole discretion whether to accept or reject such resignation). The Purchaser agrees to cause, and agrees to cause its respective Affiliates to cause, any H.I.G. Designee to resign from the Board of Directors if the applicable H.I.G. Designee fails to resign if and when requested pursuant to this clause (h).
(i)If any H.I.G. Designee ceases to satisfy in all material respects the conditions and obligations set forth in clauses (b) and (c) of this Section 4.06, then the Company may notify the Purchaser thereof and promptly following such notification, the Purchaser and the Company (acting through the Board of Directors) shall work together in good faith to replace such nominee as promptly as reasonably practical with a replacement H.I.G. Designee subject to the terms and conditions hereof, and thereafter such individual shall as promptly as reasonably practical replace the existing H.I.G. Designee and be appointed to the Board of Directors to be nominated as a Company nominee as a “H.I.G. Designee” pursuant to this Section 4.06.
(j)For the avoidance of doubt, notwithstanding anything in this Agreement or the Certificate of Designations to the contrary, transferees of any shares of Series A Preferred Stock and/or the shares of Company Common Stock issued or issuable upon conversion of any shares of Series A Preferred Stock (other than any Person in the H.I.G. Group who signs a Joinder in accordance with Section 4.02) shall not have any rights pursuant to this Section 4.06.
Section 4.07.Financing Cooperation. If requested by the Purchaser, the Company will provide the following cooperation in connection with the Purchaser obtaining any Permitted Loan: (i) subject to applicable law, using commercially reasonable efforts to (A) remove any restrictive legends on certificates representing pledged shares of Series A Preferred Stock and depositing such pledged shares of Series A Preferred Stock in book entry form on the books of The Depository Trust Company when eligible to do so or (B) without limiting the generality of clause (A), if such shares of Series A Preferred Stock are eligible for resale under Rule 144A, depositing such pledged shares of Series A Preferred Stock in book entry form on the books of The Depository Trust Company or other depository with customary restrictive legends, (ii) if so requested by such lender or counterparty, as applicable, using commercially reasonable efforts to re-register the pledged shares of Series A Preferred Stock in the name of the relevant lender, counterparty, custodian or similar party to a Permitted Loan, with respect to Permitted Loans solely as securities intermediary and only to the extent a Purchaser or its Affiliates continues to beneficially own such pledged shares of Series A Preferred Stock, (iii) use commercially reasonable best efforts, and to negotiate in good faith, the terms of the an issuer agreement (each, an “Issuer Agreement”) with each lender with respect to such Permitted Loan, (iv) entering into customary triparty agreements with the relevant lender and the Purchaser relating to the delivery of the shares of Series A Preferred Stock to such lender for crediting to the relevant collateral accounts upon funding of the relevant loan and payment of the purchase price of the Purchaser, including a right for such lender as a third party beneficiary with respect to the Company’s obligation under Article II hereof to issue the shares of Series A Preferred Stock upon payment of the purchase price therefor in accordance with the terms of this Agreement (including satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 2.02(d)) and (v) such other cooperation and assistance as the Purchaser may reasonably request that will not unreasonably disrupt the ordinary course operation of the Company’s business. Anything in the preceding sentence to the contrary notwithstanding, the Company’s obligation to deliver an
49
4840-5838-5626.18


Issuer Agreement is conditioned on (x) the Purchaser delivering to the Company a copy of the loan agreement for the Permitted Loan to which the Issuer Agreement relates and (y) the Purchaser certifying to the Company in writing that (A) the loan agreement with respect to which the Issuer Agreement is being delivered constitutes a Permitted Loan being entered into in accordance with this Agreement, the Purchaser has pledged the shares of Series A Preferred Stock and/or the underlying shares of Company Common Stock as collateral to the lenders under such Permitted Loan and that the execution of such Permitted Loan and the terms thereof do not violate the terms of this Agreement, (B) to the extent applicable, whether the registration rights under Article V are being assigned to the lenders under that Permitted Loan and (C) the Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that the Company will be relying on such certificate when entering into the Issuer Agreement and any inaccuracy in such certificate will be deemed a breach of this Agreement. The Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that the statements and agreements of the Company in an Issuer Agreement are solely for the benefit of the applicable lenders party thereto and that in any dispute between the Company and the Purchaser under this Agreement, the Purchaser shall not be entitled to use the statements and agreements of the Company in an Issuer Agreement against the Company. Upon request by the Purchaser, the Company shall consider in good faith any amendments to this Agreement or the Certificate of Designations proposed by the Purchaser necessary to facilitate the consummation of a Permitted Loan transaction, and the Company shall take commercially reasonable efforts to submit for approval to the Board of Directors any such amendment that is not adverse in any respect to the interests of the Company (as determined in good faith by the Company in its sole and absolute discretion), it being acknowledged that registration of any shares of Series A Preferred Stock or Company Common Stock for resale by the Registration Date is not adverse to the interests of the Company.
Section 4.08.Certain Tax Matters.
(a)Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the Company shall have the right to deduct and withhold from any payment made with respect to shares of Series A Preferred Stock such amounts as are required to be deducted or withheld with respect to the making of such payment under any applicable Tax law. The Company shall provide the Purchaser with reasonable notice in advance of any such deduction and withholding and shall use commercially reasonable efforts to cooperate with the Purchaser to minimize or eliminate such withholding. To the extent that any amounts are so deducted or withheld and paid to the applicable Governmental Entity, such deducted or withheld amounts shall be treated for all purposes of this Agreement as having been paid to the person in respect of which such deduction or withholding was made. Absent a change in law after the date hereof, this Section 4.08(a) shall not apply to the issuance of shares of Company Common Stock (but not cash) upon conversion of any shares of Series A Preferred Stock and the Company shall not have the right to withhold and deduct upon such conversion. To the extent the Company in good faith reasonably believes that such change in law has in fact occurred, the Company shall give prompt notice of such change in law to the Purchaser and shall cooperate in good faith with the Purchaser to minimize or eliminate such deduction or withholding.
(b)The parties agree not to treat the Series A Preferred Stock as preferred stock within the meaning of Treasury Regulation section 1.305-5 for all U.S. income tax purposes, absent a change in applicable law after the date hereof. Notwithstanding anything to the
50
4840-5838-5626.18


contrary in this Agreement, the Company shall not, without the written approval of the Purchaser pay any dividend (including cash dividends) or make any other distribution on any share of capital stock or other security convertible into, or exercisable or exchangeable for, any capital stock of the Company, so long as any share of Series A Preferred Stock is outstanding, if such dividend, distribution or action may result in a deemed dividend or deemed distribution under Code Section 305 to the holders of the shares of Series A Preferred Stock.
Section 4.09.Section 16 Matters. If the Company becomes a party to a consolidation, merger or other similar transaction that may result in the Purchaser, its Affiliates and/or any H.I.G. Affiliated Director being deemed to have made a disposition or acquisition of equity securities of the Company or derivatives thereof for purposes of Section 16 of the Exchange Act, and if any H.I.G. Affiliated Director is serving on the Board of Directors at such time or has served on the Board of Directors during the preceding six months (i) the Board of Directors or a committee thereof composed solely of two or more “non-employee directors” as defined in Rule 16b-3 of the Exchange Act will pre-approve such acquisition or disposition of equity securities of the Company or derivatives thereof for the express purpose of exempting the Purchaser’s, its Affiliates’ and any H.I.G. Affiliated Director’s interests (to the extent such persons may be deemed to be “directors by deputization”) in such transaction from Section 16(b) of the Exchange Act pursuant to Rule 16b-3 thereunder and (ii) if the transaction involves (A) a merger or consolidation to which the Company is a party and the Company Common Stock is, in whole or in part, converted into or exchanged for equity securities of a different issuer, (B) a potential acquisition or deemed acquisition, or disposition or deemed disposition, by the Purchaser, its Affiliates and/or any H.I.G. Affiliated Director of equity securities of such other issuer or derivatives thereof and (C) an Affiliate or other designee of the Purchaser or its Affiliates will serve on the board of directors (or its equivalent) of such other issuer pursuant to the terms of an agreement to which the Company is a party (or if the Purchaser notifies the Company of such service a reasonable time in advance of the closing of such transactions), then if the Company requires that the other issuer pre-approve any acquisition of equity securities or derivatives thereof for the express purpose of exempting the interests of any director or officer of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries in such transactions from Section 16(b) of the Exchange Act pursuant to Rule 16b-3 thereunder, the Company shall require that such other issuer pre-approve any such acquisitions of equity securities or derivatives thereof for the express purpose of exempting the interests of the Purchaser’s, its Affiliates’ and any H.I.G. Affiliated Director’s (to the extent such persons may be deemed to be “directors by deputization” of such other issuer) in such transactions from Section 16(b) of the Exchange Act pursuant to Rule 16b-3 thereunder.
Section 4.10.D&O Indemnification / Insurance Priority Matters. The Company shall enter into an indemnification agreement consistent with the form attached hereto as Exhibit D with each H.I.G. Affiliated Director, with such changes as are mutually acceptable to the Purchaser and the Company. The Company acknowledges and agrees that any H.I.G. Affiliated Directors who are partners, members, employees, advisors or consultants of any member of the H.I.G. Group may have certain rights to indemnification, advancement of expenses and/or insurance provided by the applicable member of the H.I.G. Group (collectively, the “H.I.G. Indemnitors”). The Company acknowledges and agrees that the Company shall be the indemnitor of first resort with respect to any indemnification, advancement of expenses and/or insurance provided in the Company’s certificate of
51
4840-5838-5626.18


incorporation, bylaws and/or indemnification agreement (including Section 5.05 hereof) to any H.I.G. Affiliated Director in his or her capacity as a director of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries (such that the Company’s obligations to such indemnitees in their capacities as directors are primary and any obligation of the H.I.G. Indemnitors to advance expenses or to provide indemnification or insurance for the same expenses or liabilities incurred by such indemnitees are secondary), and the Company agrees it shall use commercially reasonable efforts to amend its applicable director and officer insurance policies to provide for terms substantially consistent with the foregoing. Such indemnitees shall, in their capacities as directors, be entitled to all the rights to indemnification, advancement of expenses and entitled to insurance to the extent provided under (i) the certificate of incorporation and/or bylaws of the Company as in effect from time to time and/or (ii) such other agreement (including Section 5.05 hereof), if any, between the Company and such indemnitees, without regard to any rights such indemnitees may have against the H.I.G. Indemnitors. No advancement or payment by the H.I.G. Indemnitors on behalf of such indemnitees with respect to any claim for which such indemnitees have sought indemnification, advancement of expenses or insurance from the Company in their capacities as directors shall affect the foregoing and the H.I.G. Indemnitors shall have a right of contribution and/or be subrogated to the extent of such advancement or payment to all of the rights of recovery of such indemnitees against the Company.
Section 4.11.Negative Covenants. Except (i) as required by applicable law, (ii) to comply with any notice from a Governmental Entity, (iii) as expressly required by this Agreement or (iv) as otherwise consented to by Purchaser, during the period from the date of this Agreement until the Closing Date (or such earlier date on which this Agreement may be terminated pursuant to Section 2.04), (1) the Company shall, and shall cause its Subsidiaries to, use their commercially reasonable efforts to operate their businesses in all material respects in the ordinary course, and (2) the Company shall not:
(a)other than the authorization and issuance of the Series A Preferred Stock to the Purchaser and the consummation of the other Transactions, issue, sell or grant any shares of its capital stock or other equity or voting interests, or any securities or rights convertible into, exchangeable or exercisable for, or evidencing the right to subscribe for any shares of its capital stock or other equity or voting interests, or any rights, warrants or options to purchase any shares of its capital stock or other equity or voting interests; provided (i) the Company may issue or sell Company Common Stock pursuant to any employee stock plan, equity incentive plan, stock ownership plan or dividend reinvestment plan of the Company in effect as of the date hereof, (ii) the Company may issue Company Common Stock issuable upon the conversion of securities or the exercise of warrants outstanding as of the date hereof, (iii) the Company may issue or sell Company Common Stock or securities convertible into, exchangeable for or that represent the right to receive Company Common Stock (A) in connection with the acquisition by the Company or any of its subsidiaries of the securities, business, technology, property or other assets of another person or entity of which Purchaser been advised in writing and in compliance with the terms of this Agreement, or (B) pursuant to an employee benefit plan assumed by the Company in connection with such acquisition, provided that the aggregate number of shares of Company Common Stock that the Company may issue or sell pursuant to this clause (iii) shall not exceed five percent (5%) of the total number of shares of Company Common Stock outstanding immediately following the completion of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, and (iv) the Company may file any registration statement on

Any Registration Statement filed pursuant to this Article V shall cover only Registrable Securities, shall be on Form S-3 (or a successor form) if the Company is eligible to use such form and shall be an automatically effective Registration Statement if the Company is a WKSI (in which case, the Registration Statement may request registration of an unspecified amount of Registrable Securities to be sold by unspecified holders).
(b)Subject to the provisions of Section 5.02 and further subject to the availability of a Registration Statement on Form S-3 (or any successor form thereto) to the Company pursuant to the Securities Act and the rules and interpretations of the SEC, the Company will use its reasonable efforts to keep the Registration Statement (or any replacement Registration Statement) continuously effective until the earlier of (such earlier date, the “Registration Termination Date”): (i) the date on which all Registrable Securities covered by the Registration Statement have been sold thereunder in accordance with the plan and method of distribution disclosed in the prospectus included in the Registration Statement and (ii) there otherwise cease to be any Registrable Securities.

Each such written request must specify the amount and intended manner of disposition of such Registrable Securities; provided, that the minimum amount of such Registrable Securities shall be $75,000,000 (or such lesser amount then held by the requesting holders of Registrable Securities).

law; provided, however, that the Company shall not be required to file more than one post-effective amendment or a supplement to the related prospectus for such purpose in any 90-day period;
(ii)if, pursuant to Section 5.02(b)(i), the Company shall have filed a post-effective amendment to the Registration Statement that is not automatically effective, use its commercially reasonable efforts to cause such post-effective amendment to become effective under the Securities Act as promptly as is reasonably practicable; and
(iii)notify such holder of Registrable Securities as promptly as is reasonably practicable after the effectiveness under the Securities Act of any post-effective amendment filed pursuant to Section 5.02(b)(i).
(c)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, the Company shall be entitled, from time to time, by providing written notice to the holders of Registrable Securities, to require such holders of Registrable Securities to suspend the use of the prospectus for sales of Registrable Securities under the Registration Statement during any Blackout Period. No sales may be made under the applicable Registration Statement during any Blackout Period (of which the holders of Registrable Securities have or are deemed to have received notice). In the event of a Blackout Period, the Company shall (x) deliver to the holders of Registrable Securities a certificate signed by the chief executive officer, chief financial officer or general counsel of the Company confirming that the conditions described in the definition of Blackout Period are met (but which certificate need not specify the nature of the event causing such conditions to have been met), which certificate shall contain an approximation of the anticipated delay, and (y) notify each holder of Registrable Securities promptly upon each of the commencement and the termination of each Blackout Period, which notice of termination shall be delivered to each holder of Registrable Securities no later than the close of business of the last day of the Blackout Period. In connection with the expiration of any Blackout Period and without any further request from a holder of Registrable Securities, the Company to the extent necessary and as required by applicable law shall as promptly as reasonably practicable prepare supplements or amendments, including a post-effective amendment, to the Registration Statement or the prospectus, or any document incorporated therein by reference, or file any other required document so that the Registration Statement will be Available. A Blackout Period shall be deemed to have expired when the Company has notified the holders of Registrable Securities that the Blackout Period is over and the Registration Statement is Available.
(d)At any time that a Registration Statement is effective and prior to the Registration Termination Date, if a holder of Registrable Securities (an “Initiating Holder”) delivers a notice to the Company (a “Take-Down Notice”) stating that it intends to sell at least $75,000,000 of Registrable Securities held by such holder (provided that, if the Purchaser and its Affiliates do not own at least $75,000,000 of Registrable Securities, they shall be permitted to deliver a Take-Down Notice to sell all of their remaining Registrable Securities then held by them in a single distribution), in each case, pursuant to the Registration Statement, then, the Company shall amend or supplement the Registration Statement as may be necessary and to
65
4840-5838-5626.18


the extent required by law so that the Registration Statement remains Available in order to enable such Registrable Securities to be distributed in an Underwritten Offering or in such other manner as requested by the Purchaser; provided, that the Initiating Holders may not deliver more than one (1) Take-Down Notice to the Company in any consecutive 90-day period; provided further, that the Initiating Holders may not deliver more than two (2) Take-Down Notices in any twelve (12) month period. In connection with any Underwritten Offering of Registrable Securities for which a holder delivers a Take-Down Notice and satisfies the dollar thresholds set forth in the first sentence above and the Take-Down Notice contemplates a Marketed Underwritten Offering, the Company will use commercially reasonable efforts to cooperate and make its senior officers available for participation in such marketing efforts (which marketing efforts will, for the avoidance of doubt, include “road shows” or similar marketing efforts) to the extent reasonably necessary to support the proposed sale of Registrable Securities pursuant to such Marketed Underwritten Offering (it being understood that the Company and its officers shall not be obligated to participate in any in-person road show presentations). The Company shall have the right hereunder to select the underwriter(s) for each Underwritten Offering, which underwriter(s) shall be reasonably acceptable to the Initiating Holders. The Initiating Holders shall have the right hereunder to: (i) determine the pricing of the Registrable Securities offered pursuant to any such Registration Statement, including the underwriting discount and fees payable to the underwriters in such Underwritten Offering, as well as any other financial terms, (ii) determine the timing of any such registration and sale, such timing to be reasonably acceptable to the Company, and (iii) determine the total number of Registrable Securities that can be included in such Underwritten Offering in consultation with the managing underwriters. Each Initiating Holder further agrees to execute such agreements as may be reasonably requested by the underwriter(s) in connection with any Underwritten Offering of Registrable Securities for which the Initiating Holder delivers a Take-Down Notice that are consistent with this Section 5.02(d) or that are necessary to give further effect to such Underwritten Offering. Without the consent of the applicable holder of Registrable Securities subject to an Underwritten Offering, no Underwritten Offering pursuant to this Agreement shall include any securities other than Registrable Securities.
(e)In addition to the registration rights provided in Section 5.01 and the indemnification provisions in Section 5.05, holders of Registrable Securities shall have analogous rights to indemnification and to sell such securities in a marketed offering under Rule 144A under the Securities Act through one or more initial purchasers, using procedures that are substantially equivalent to those specified in Section 5.02, Section 5.03 and Section 5.05, as applicable. The Company agrees to use its reasonable efforts to cooperate to effect any such sales under such Rule 144A. Nothing in this Section 5.02(e) shall impose any additional or more burdensome obligations on the Company than would apply under Section 5.02 and Section 5.03, in each case, mutatis mutandis in respect of a registered Underwritten Offering, or require that the Company take any actions that it would not be required to take in an Underwritten Offering.
(f)Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, (i) if holders of Registrable Securities engage or propose to engage in a “distribution” (as defined in Regulation M under the Exchange Act) of Registrable Securities, such holders shall discuss the timing of such distribution with the Company reasonably prior to commencing such distribution, and (ii) such
66
4840-5838-5626.18


distribution must not be for less than $75,000,000 of Registrable Securities held by such holders (provided that, if collectively the Purchaser and its Affiliates do not own at least $75,000,000 of Registrable Securities, they shall be permitted to engage in such distribution with respect to all of the Registrable Securities held by them (for so long as they hold collectively at least $25,000,000 of Registrable Securities)).
(g)In connection with a distribution of Registrable Securities in which a holder of Registrable Securities is selling at least $75,000,000 of Registrable Securities including pursuant to Rule 144A, the Company shall and shall use its reasonable best efforts to cause each of its officers and directors to, to the extent requested by Purchaser, the managing underwriter(s) or initial purchasers, as applicable, of such a distribution, be subject to a restricted period of the same length of time as such holder agrees with the managing underwriter(s) (but not to exceed 60 days) during which the Company and its officers and directors may not offer, sell or grant any option to purchase Company Common Stock (in the case of an offering of Company Common Stock or securities convertible or exchangeable for Company Common Stock), subject to customary carve-outs that include, but are not limited to, (i) issuances pursuant to the Company’s employee or director stock plans and issuances of shares upon the exercise of options or other equity awards under such stock plans and (ii) in connection with acquisitions, joint ventures and other strategic transactions.
Section 5.03Registration Procedures.
(a)In connection with the registration of any Registrable Securities under the Securities Act and in connection with any distribution of Registrable Securities pursuant thereto as contemplated by this Agreement (including any sale referred to in any Take-Down Notice), or any analogous Rule 144A offering pursuant to Section 5.02(e), the Company shall as promptly as reasonably practicable, subject to the other provisions of this Agreement:
(i)subject to the provisions of Section 5.01(a), use reasonable efforts to prepare and file with the SEC a Registration Statement to effect such registration in accordance with the intended method or methods of distribution of such securities and thereafter use reasonable efforts to cause such Registration Statement to become and remain effective pursuant to the terms of this Article V; provided, however, that the Company may discontinue any registration of its securities which are not Registrable Securities at any time prior to the effective date of the Registration Statement relating thereto; provided, further, that before filing such Registration Statement or any amendments or supplements thereto, including any prospectus supplements in connection with a sale referred to in a Take-Down Notice (but excluding amendments and supplements that do nothing more than name Selling Holders (as defined below) and provide information with respect thereto), the Company will furnish to the holders which are including Registrable Securities in such registration (“Selling Holders”) and the lead managing underwriter(s), if any, copies of all such documents proposed to be filed, which documents will be subject to the review and reasonable comment (which comments will be considered in good faith by the Company) of the counsel (if any) to such holders and counsel (if any) to such underwriter(s), and other documents reasonably
67
4840-5838-5626.18


requested by any such counsel, including any comment letters from the SEC, and, if requested by counsel to any member of the H.I.G. Group, provide such counsel to any member of the H.I.G. Group and the lead managing underwriter(s), if any, reasonable opportunity to participate in the preparation of such Registration Statement and each prospectus (including any prospectus supplement) included or deemed included therein and such other opportunities to conduct a customary and reasonable due diligence investigation (in the context of a registered underwritten offering) of the Company, including reasonable access to (including responses to any reasonable inquiries by the lead managing underwriter(s) and their counsel) the Company’s books and records, officers, accountants and other advisors, provided that the same occurs during normal business hours after reasonable notice and is not disruptive to the business of the Company; provided that such persons shall first agree in writing with the Company that any information that is reasonably designated by the Company as confidential at the time of delivery shall be kept confidential by such persons subject to customary exceptions;
(ii)subject to Section 5.02, prepare and file with the SEC such amendments and supplements to such Registration Statement and the prospectus used in connection therewith as may be necessary and to the extent required by applicable law to keep such Registration Statement effective and Available pursuant to the terms of this Article V;
(iii)if requested by the lead managing underwriter(s), promptly include in a prospectus supplement or post-effective amendment such information as the lead managing underwriter(s), if any, and such holders may reasonably request in order to permit the intended method of distribution of such securities and make all required filings of such prospectus supplement or such post-effective amendment as soon as reasonably practicable after the Company has received such request; provided, however, that the Company shall not be required to take any actions under this Section 5.03(a)(iii) that are not, in the opinion of counsel for the Company, in compliance with applicable law;
(iv)furnish to the Selling Holders and each underwriter, if any, of the securities being sold by such Selling Holders such number of conformed copies of such Registration Statement and of each amendment and supplement thereto, such number of copies of the prospectus and any prospectus supplement contained in or deemed part of such Registration Statement (including each preliminary prospectus supplement) and each free writing prospectus (as defined in Rule 405 of the Securities Act) (a “Free Writing Prospectus”) utilized in connection therewith and any other prospectus filed under Rule 424 under the Securities Act, in conformity with the requirements of the Securities Act, and such other documents as such Selling Holders and underwriter(s), if any, may reasonably request in order to facilitate the public sale or other disposition of the Registrable Securities owned by such Selling Holders;
68
4840-5838-5626.18


(v)use reasonable efforts to cause such Registrable Securities to be listed on each securities exchange on which similar securities issued by the Company are then listed, and to apply for any necessary “CUSIPs” or analogous codes to identify such securities;
(vi)use reasonable efforts to provide and cause to be maintained a transfer agent and registrar for all Registrable Securities covered by such Registration Statement from and after a date not later than the effective date of such Registration Statement;
(vii)as promptly as practicable notify in writing such Selling Holders and the underwriters, if any, of the following events: (A) the filing of the Registration Statement, any amendment thereto, the prospectus or any prospectus supplement related thereto or post-effective amendment to such Registration Statement or any Free Writing Prospectus utilized in connection therewith, and, with respect to such Registration Statement or any post-effective amendment thereto, when the same has become effective; (B) any request by the SEC or any other U.S. or state governmental authority for amendments or supplements to such Registration Statement or the prospectus; (C) the issuance by the SEC of any stop order suspending the effectiveness of such Registration Statement or the initiation of any proceedings by any person for that purpose; (D) the receipt by the Company of any notification with respect to the suspension of the qualification of any Registrable Securities for sale under the securities or “blue sky” laws of any jurisdiction or the initiation or threat of any proceeding for such purpose; (E) if at any time the representations and warranties of the Company contained in any agreement (including any underwriting agreement) related to such registration cease to be true and correct in any material respect; and (F) upon the happening of any event that makes any statement made in such Registration Statement or related prospectus or any document incorporated or deemed to be incorporated therein by reference untrue in any material respect or that requires the making of any changes in such registration statement, prospectus or documents so that, in the case of such Registration Statement, it will not contain any 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, and that in the case of the prospectus, it will not contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact necessary in order to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading; provided, in the case of clause (F), that such notice need not include the nature or details concerning such event;
(viii)use reasonable efforts to obtain the withdrawal of any order suspending the effectiveness of such Registration Statement, or the lifting of any suspension of the qualification (or exemption from qualification) of any of the Registrable Securities for sale in any jurisdiction at the earliest reasonable practicable date, except that the Company shall not for any such purpose be required to (A) qualify generally to do business as a foreign corporation or as a dealer in securities in any jurisdiction wherein it would not but for the requirements
69

of this clause (ix) be obligated to be so qualified, (B) subject itself to taxation in any such jurisdiction or (C) file a general consent to service of process in any such jurisdiction;

(x)prior to any public offering of Registrable Securities, use reasonable efforts to register or qualify or cooperate with the Selling Holders in connection with the registration or qualification (or exemption from such registration or qualification) of such Registrable Securities for offer and sale under the applicable state securities or “blue sky” laws of those jurisdictions within the United States as any holder reasonably requests in writing to keep each such registration or qualification (or exemption therefrom) effective until the Registration Termination Date; provided, that the Company will not be required to (A) qualify generally to do business as a foreign corporation or as a dealer in securities in any jurisdiction wherein it would not but for the requirements of this clause (xi) be obligated to be so qualified, (B) subject itself to taxation in any such jurisdiction or (C) file a general consent to service of process in any such jurisdiction;
(xi)use reasonable efforts to cooperate with the holders to facilitate the timely preparation and delivery of certificates or book-entry securities representing Registrable Securities to be delivered to a transferee pursuant to the Registration Statements, which certificates or book-entry securities shall be free, to the extent permitted by applicable law, of all restrictive legends, and to enable such Registrable Securities to be in such denominations and registered in such names as any such holders may request in writing; and in connection therewith, if required by the Company’s transfer agent, the Company will promptly after the effectiveness of the Registration Statement cause to be delivered to its transfer agent when and as required by such transfer agent from time to time, any authorizations, certificates, directions and other evidence required by the transfer agent which authorize and direct the transfer agent to issue such Registrable Securities without legend upon sale by the holder of such shares of Registrable Securities under the Registration Statement; and

70
4840-5838-5626.18


(b)The Company may require each Selling Holder and each underwriter, if any, to (i) furnish the Company in writing such information regarding each Selling Holder or underwriter and the distribution of such Registrable Securities as the Company may from time to time reasonably request in writing to complete or amend the information required by such Registration Statement and/or any other documents relating to such registered offering, and (ii) execute and deliver, or cause the execution or delivery of, and to perform under, or cause the performance under, any agreements and instruments reasonably requested by the Company to effectuate such registered offering, including, without limitation, opinions of counsel and questionnaires. If the Company requests that the holders of Registrable Securities take any of the actions referred to in this Section 5.03(b), such holders shall take such action promptly and as soon as reasonably practicable following the date of such request.
(c)Each Selling Holder agrees that upon receipt of any notice from the Company of the happening of any event of the kind described in clauses (B), (C), (D), (E) and (F) of Section 5.03(a)(vii), such Selling Holder shall forthwith discontinue such Selling Holder’s disposition of Registrable Securities pursuant to the applicable Registration Statement and prospectus relating thereto until such Selling Holder is advised in writing by the Company that the use of the applicable prospectus may be resumed, and has received copies of any additional or supplemental filings that are incorporated or deemed to be incorporated by reference in such prospectus. The Company shall use reasonable efforts to cure the events described in clauses (B), (C), (D), (E) and (F) of Section 5.03(a)(vii) so that the use of the applicable prospectus may be resumed at the earliest reasonably practicable moment.

Section 5.05.Registration Indemnification.
(a)The Company agrees, without limitation as to time, to indemnify and hold harmless, to the fullest extent permitted by law, each Selling Holder and its Affiliates and their respective officers, directors, members, shareholders, employees, managers, partners, accountants, attorneys, advisors and agents and each Person who controls (within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act and Section 20 of the Exchange Act) such Selling Holder or such other indemnified Person and the officers, directors, members, shareholders, employees, managers, partners, accountants, attorneys, advisors and agents of each such controlling Person, each underwriter, if any, and each Person who controls (within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act and Section 20 of the Exchange Act) such underwriter (collectively, the “Indemnified Persons”), from and against all losses, claims, damages, liabilities, costs, expenses (including reasonable expenses of investigation and reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses), judgments, fines, penalties, charges and amounts paid in settlement (collectively, the “Losses”), as incurred, arising out of, caused by, resulting from or relating to any untrue statement (or alleged untrue statement) of a material fact contained in any Registration Statement, prospectus or preliminary prospectus or Free Writing Prospectus, in each case related to such Registration Statement, or any amendment or supplement thereto or any omission (or alleged omission) of a material fact required to be stated therein or
71
4840-5838-5626.18


necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading and (without limitation of the preceding portions of this Section 5.05(a)) will reimburse each Indemnified Person, for any reasonable legal and any other expenses reasonably incurred in connection with investigating and defending or settling any such claim, Loss, damage, liability or action, except insofar as the same are caused by any information regarding a holder of Registrable Securities or underwriter furnished in writing to the Company by any such person or any Selling Holder or underwriter expressly for use in connection with such Registration Statement, prospectus or preliminary prospectus or Free Writing Prospectus, in each case related to such Registration Statement, or any amendment or supplement thereto.
(b)In connection with any Registration Statement in which a Selling Holder is participating, without limitation as to time, each such Selling Holder shall, severally and not jointly, indemnify the Company, its directors and officers, and each Person who controls (within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act and Section 20 of the Exchange Act) the Company, from and against all Losses, as incurred, arising out of, caused by, resulting from or relating to any untrue statement (or alleged untrue statement) of material fact contained in the Registration Statement, prospectus or preliminary prospectus or Free Writing Prospectus or any amendment or supplement thereto or any omission (or alleged omission) of a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading, and (without limitation of the preceding portions of this Section 5.05(b)) will reimburse the Company, its directors and officers and each Person who controls the Company (within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act and Section 20 of the Exchange Act) for any legal and any other expenses reasonably incurred in connection with investigating and defending or settling any such claim, Loss, damage, liability or action, in each case solely to the extent, but only to the extent, that such untrue statement or omission is made in such Registration Statement, prospectus or preliminary prospectus or Free Writing Prospectus or any amendment or supplement thereto in reliance upon and in conformity with written information regarding the Selling Holder furnished to the Company by such Selling Holder for inclusion in such Registration Statement, prospectus or preliminary prospectus or Free Writing Prospectus or any amendment or supplement thereto.
(c)Any Person entitled to indemnification hereunder shall give prompt written notice to the indemnifying party of any claim with respect to which it seeks indemnification; provided, however, the failure to give such notice shall not release the indemnifying party from its obligation, except to the extent that the indemnifying party has been actually and materially prejudiced by such failure to provide such notice on a timely basis.
(d)In any case in which any such action is brought against any indemnified party, the indemnified party shall promptly notify in writing the indemnifying party of the commencement thereof, and the indemnifying party will be entitled to participate therein, and, to the extent that it may wish, to assume the defense thereof, with counsel reasonably satisfactory to such indemnified party, and after notice from the indemnifying party to such indemnified party of its election so to assume the defense thereof and acknowledging the obligations of the indemnifying party with respect to such proceeding, the indemnifying party will not (so long as it shall continue to have the right to defend, contest, litigate and settle the matter in question in accordance with this paragraph) be liable to such indemnified party
72
4840-5838-5626.18


hereunder for any legal or other expense subsequently incurred by such indemnified party in connection with the defense thereof other than reasonable costs of investigation, supervision and monitoring (unless (i) such indemnified party reasonably objects to such assumption on the grounds that there may be defenses available to it which are different from or in addition to the defenses available to such indemnifying party or a conflict of interest otherwise exists or (ii) the indemnifying party shall have failed within a reasonable period of time to assume such defense and the indemnified party is or would reasonably be expected to be materially prejudiced by such delay, in either event the indemnified party shall be promptly reimbursed by the indemnifying party for the expenses incurred in connection with retaining one separate legal counsel (for the avoidance of doubt, for all indemnified parties in connection therewith)). For the avoidance of doubt, notwithstanding any such assumption by an indemnifying party, the indemnified party shall have the right to employ separate counsel in any such matter and participate in the defense thereof, but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be at the expense of such indemnified party except as provided in the previous sentence. An indemnifying party shall not be liable for any settlement of an action or claim effected without its consent (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed). No matter shall be settled by an indemnifying party without the consent of the indemnified party (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), unless such settlement (x) includes an unconditional release of such indemnified party from all liability on claims that are the subject matter of such claim or proceeding, (y) does not include any statement as to or any admission of fault, culpability or a failure to act by or on behalf of any indemnified party and (z) is settled solely for cash for which the indemnified party would be entitled to indemnification hereunder. The failure of an indemnified party to give notice to an indemnifying party of any action brought against such indemnified party shall not relieve the indemnifying party of its obligations or liabilities pursuant to this Agreement, except to the extent such failure adversely prejudices the indemnifying party.
(e)The indemnification provided for under this Agreement shall survive the sale or other transfer of the Registrable Securities and the termination of this Agreement.
(f)If recovery is not available under the foregoing indemnification provisions for any reason or reasons other than as specified therein, any Person who would otherwise be entitled to indemnification by the terms thereof shall nevertheless be entitled to contribution with respect to any Losses with respect to which such Person would be entitled to such indemnification but for such reason or reasons, in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the indemnifying party, on the one hand, and such indemnified party, on the other hand, in connection with the actions, statements or omissions that resulted in such Losses 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, the Persons’ relative knowledge and access to information concerning the matter with respect to which the claim was asserted, the opportunity to correct and prevent any statement or omission, and other equitable considerations appropriate under the circumstances. It is hereby agreed that it would not necessarily be equitable if the amount of such contribution were determined by pro rata or per capita allocation that does not take into account the equitable considerations referred to in the immediately preceding sentence. Notwithstanding
73
4840-5838-5626.18


any other provision of this Agreement, no holder of Registrable Securities shall be required to indemnify or contribute, in the aggregate, any amount in excess of its net proceeds from the sale of the Registrable Securities subject to any actions or proceedings over the amount of any damages, indemnity or contribution that such holder has otherwise been required to pay by reason of such untrue or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission. No Person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Securities Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any Person who was not found guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation.
(g)The indemnification and contribution agreements contained in this Section 5.05 are in addition to any liability that the indemnifying party may have to the indemnified party and do not limit other provisions of this Agreement that provide for indemnification.
Section 5.06.Facilitation of Sales Pursuant to Rule 144. For as long as the Purchaser or its Affiliates or any lender under any Permitted Loan Beneficially Owns any shares of Series A Preferred Stock or any Company Common Stock issued or issuable upon conversion or exercise thereof, to the extent it shall be required to do so under the Exchange Act, the Company shall use reasonable efforts to timely file the reports required to be filed by it under the Exchange Act or the Securities Act (including the reports under Sections 13 and 15(d) of the Exchange Act referred to in subparagraph (c)(1) of Rule 144) and submit all required Interactive Data Files (as defined in Rule 11 of Regulation S-T of the SEC), and shall use reasonable efforts to take such further necessary action as any holder of Registrable Securities may reasonably request in connection with the removal of any restrictive legend on the Registrable Securities being sold, all to the extent required from time to time to enable such holder to sell the Registrable Securities without registration under the Securities Act within the limitations of the exemption provided by Rule 144.

SECTION 4. Dividends.
(a)Holders shall be entitled to receive dividends of the type and in the amount determined as set forth in this Section 4 (such dividends, “Dividends”).
(b)Accrual of Dividends. Dividends on each share of Series A Preferred Stock (i) shall accrue on a daily basis from and including the Issuance Date of such share, whether or not declared and whether or not the Company has assets legally available to make payment thereof, at a rate equal to the Dividend Rate as further specified below and (ii) shall compound or be payable, as applicable, semiannually in arrears, on each Dividend Payment Date, commencing on the first Dividend Payment Date following the Original Issuance Date. The amount of Dividends accruing with respect to any share of Series A Preferred Stock for any day shall be determined by dividing (x) the Implied Semiannual Dividend Amount as of such day by (y) the actual number of days that have elapsed during the Dividend Payment Period by the date on which such day falls (for the avoidance of doubt, which such number of days shall be counted from and including the Original Issuance Date or last Dividend Payment Date, as applicable, to but excluding the next Dividend Payment Date); provided, however that if during any Dividend Payment Period any Accrued Dividends in respect of one or more prior Dividend Payment Periods are paid, then after the date of such payment the amount of Dividends accruing with respect to any share of Series A Preferred Stock for any day shall be determined by dividing (x) the Implied Semiannual Dividend Amount as of such day (recalculated to take into account such payment of Accrued Dividends) by (y) the actual number of days that have elapsed during such Dividend Payment Period (each amount of dividend accrued as of such day, the “Daily Dividend Amount”). The amount of Dividends payable with respect to any share of Series A Preferred Stock for any Dividend Payment Period shall equal the sum of the Daily Dividend Amounts accrued in accordance with the prior sentence of this Section 4(b) with respect to such share during such Dividend Payment Period. For the avoidance of doubt, for any share of Series A Preferred Stock with an Issuance Date that is not a Dividend Payment Date, the amount of Dividends payable with respect to the initial Dividend Payment Period for such share shall equal the product of (A) the daily accrual determined as specified in the prior sentence, assuming a full Dividend Payment Period in accordance with the definition of such term, and (B) the number of days from and including such Issuance Date to but excluding the next Dividend Payment Date.
(c)Payment of Dividends. The Company will pay or accrue, to the extent permitted by applicable law, Dividends as follows:
(i)From the Original Issuance Date through the second anniversary of the Original Issuance Date, Dividends shall accrue on the Accrued Value of each share of Series A Preferred Stock as a dividend in kind at the Dividend Rate, which shall compound on a semiannual basis on each Dividend Payment Date and be added to the Accrued Value on each Dividend Payment Date, as provided in the definition of “Accrued Value,” whether or not declared, and whether or not there are earnings or profits, surplus or other funds or assets of the Company legally available for the payment of such Dividends (any Dividend accruing in the manner provided in this clause, “PIK Dividends”).
11
4832-0308-0154.13



(ii)Beginning on the next Dividend Payment Date after the second anniversary of the Original Issuance Date, (a) the Company shall pay a Dividend equal to 2.00% per annum of the Accrued Value of each share of Series A Preferred Stock in cash (any Dividend or portion of a Dividend paid in cash, a “Cash Dividend”) on each Dividend Payment Date, if, as and when authorized by the Board, or any duly authorized committee thereof, and declared by the Company, and out of funds legally available therefor; provided, however that, in the event the Dividend Rate is adjusted as provided in Section 4(d), Section 9(i) or Section 10(a)(i)(E), Cash Dividends shall be paid in an amount equal to the then-current Dividend Rate minus 6.00%; provided further, however that Cash Dividend payments shall be aggregated per Holder and shall be made to the nearest cent (with $.005 being rounded upward), and (b) Dividends shall accrue on each share of Series A Preferred Stock at a rate of 6.00% per annum on the Accrued Value as a dividend in kind, which shall compound on a semiannual basis on each Dividend Payment Date and be added to the Accrued Value on each Dividend Payment Date, as provided in the definition of “Accrued Value,” whether or not declared, and whether or not there are earnings or profits, surplus or other funds or assets of the Company legally available for the payment of dividends
(d)Arrearages. If the Company fails to declare and pay a full Cash Dividend on the Accrued Value of any shares of Series A Preferred Stock on any Dividend Payment Date, then any Dividends otherwise payable on such Dividend Payment Date on the Accrued Value of any shares of Series A Preferred Stock shall continue to accrue and cumulate as set forth in clause (a) of Section 4(c)(ii) and subject to the terms of this Section 4(d). In the event that there remains any Unpaid Cash Dividends for any two consecutive Dividend Payment Dates, then, retroactive to the first day of the Dividend Payment Period immediately preceding the first Dividend Payment Date at which the Company failed to pay Cash Dividends with respect to any Unpaid Cash Dividends for such two consecutive Dividend Payment Dates, the Dividend Rate with respect to all Unpaid Cash Dividends shall be increased from 2.00% per annum to 4.00% per annum (as adjusted from time to time as provided in Section 9(i) or Section 10(a)(i)(E)), payable semiannually in arrears on each Dividend Payment Date, provided that such Dividend Rate of 4.00% per annum (as adjusted from time to time as provided in Section 9(i) or Section 10(a)(i)(E)), shall continue until the date on which the Company has paid Cash Dividends with respect to all outstanding Unpaid Cash Dividends that were required to be paid on prior Dividend Payment Dates pursuant to Section 4(c)(ii). From and after the date of such payment in full of all Unpaid Cash Dividends, the Dividend Rate shall be 2.00% per annum (as adjusted from time to time as provided in Section 9(i) or Section 10(a)(i)(E)), to be applied semiannually in arrears on each Dividend Payment Date thereafter; provided, that, in the event that the Company pays all Unpaid Cash Dividends that were due and unpaid on any preceding Dividend Payment Date prior to the next occurring Dividend Payment Date, then the Dividend Rate applicable to all Cash Dividends that accrue after the date of such payment shall be 2.00% per annum (as adjusted from time to time as provided in Section 9(i) or Section 10(a)(i)(E)).
(e)Record Date. The record date for payment of Dividends that are declared and paid on any relevant Dividend Payment Date will be the close of business on the fifteenth (15th) day of the calendar month which contains the relevant Dividend Payment Date (each, a “Dividend Record Date”), and the record date for payment of any Accrued Dividends that were
12
4832-0308-0154.13



not declared and paid on any relevant Dividend Payment Date will be the close of business on the date that is established by the Board, or a duly authorized committee thereof, as such, which will not be more than forty-five (45) days prior to the date on which such Dividends are paid (each, an “Accrued Dividend Record Date”), in each case whether or not such day is a Business Day.
(f)Priority of Dividends. So long as any shares of Series A Preferred Stock remain outstanding, unless all Dividends then payable as of the applicable date of determination, whether or not declared, on all outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock have been declared and paid (or in the case of PIK Dividends, added to the Accrued Value), including any accrued and unpaid Dividends on the Series A Preferred Stock that are then in arrears, or have been or contemporaneously are declared and a sum sufficient for the payment of those dividends has been or is set aside for the benefit of the Holders, the Company may not declare any dividend or other cash distribution on, or make any distributions relating to, Junior Stock, or redeem, purchase, acquire (either directly or through any Subsidiary) or make a liquidation payment relating to, any Junior Stock, other than:
(i)purchases, redemptions or other acquisitions of shares of Junior Stock in connection with any employment contract, benefit plan or other similar arrangement with or for the benefit of current or former employees, officers, directors or consultants;
(ii)purchases of Junior Stock through the use of the proceeds of a substantially contemporaneous sale of other shares of Junior Stock;
(iii)as a result of an exchange, reclassification or conversion of any class or series of Junior Stock for or into any other class or series of Junior Stock;
(iv)purchases of fractional interests in shares of Junior Stock pursuant to the conversion, reclassification or exchange provisions of such Junior Stock or the security being converted, reclassified or exchanged;
(v)payment of any dividends in respect of Junior Stock where the dividend is in the form of the same stock or rights to purchase the same stock as that on which the dividend is being paid;
(vi)distributions of Junior Stock or rights to purchase Junior Stock;
(vii)purchases, redemptions or other acquisitions of Junior Stock for an aggregate amount up to $10,000,000; or
(viii)any dividend in connection with the implementation of a shareholders’ rights or similar plan, or the redemption, exchange or repurchase of any rights under any such.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, for so long as any shares of Series A Preferred Stock remain outstanding, if dividends are not declared and paid in full upon the shares of Series A Preferred Stock and any Parity Stock, all dividends declared upon shares of Series A Preferred Stock and
13
4832-0308-0154.13



any Parity Stock will be declared on a proportional basis so that the amount of dividends declared per share will bear to each other the same ratio that all accrued and unpaid dividends as of the end of the most recent Dividend Payment Period per share of Series A Preferred Stock and accrued and unpaid dividends as of the end of the most recent dividend period per share of any Parity Stock bear to each other.
Subject to the provisions of this Section 4 and Sections 4.11 and 4.12 of the Investment Agreement, dividends may be authorized by the Board, or any duly authorized committee thereof, and declared and paid by the Company, or any duly authorized committee thereof, on any Junior Stock from time to time, and in addition to the rights set forth in this Section 4, the Holders shall be entitled to participate in those dividends on an as-converted basis (pursuant to Section 6 without regard to any limitations on convertibility set forth therein) (other than pursuant to the adjustments otherwise provided under Section 11(b) or Section 12(a), as applicable).
(g)Conversion on or Following a Record Date. If the Conversion Date for any shares of Series A Preferred Stock is prior to the close of business on a Dividend Record Date or an Accrued Dividend Record Date, the Holder of such shares will not be entitled to any dividend in respect of such Dividend Record Date or Accrued Dividend Record Date, as applicable, other than through the inclusion of Accrued Dividends as of the Conversion Date in the calculation under Section 6(a) or Section 7(a), as applicable. If the Conversion Date for any shares of Series A Preferred Stock is after the close of business on a Dividend Record Date or an Accrued Dividend Record Date but prior to the corresponding payment date for such dividend, the Holder of such shares as of such Dividend Record Date or Accrued Dividend Record Date, as applicable, shall be entitled to receive such dividend, notwithstanding the conversion of such shares prior to the applicable Dividend Payment Date; provided, however that the amount of such Dividend shall not be included for the purpose of determining the amount of Accrued Dividends under Section 6(a) or Section 7(a), as applicable, with respect to such Conversion Date.
(h)Waivers. Subject to Section 4.12 of the Investment Agreement, any right related to the accrual, calculation, payment and priority of Dividends under this Section 4 or otherwise set forth in this Certificate of Designations may be waived as to such rights for all shares of Series A Preferred Stock (and the Holders thereof) upon the vote, election or approval of the Holders holding a majority of the shares of Series A Preferred Stock then outstanding.
SECTION 5. Liquidation Rights.
(a)Liquidation. In the event of any voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the affairs of the Company, the Holders shall be entitled, out of assets legally available therefor, before any distribution or payment out of the assets of the Company may be made to or set aside for the holders of any Junior Stock, and subject to the rights of the Company’s existing and future creditors, to receive in full a liquidating distribution in cash and in the amount per share of Series A Preferred Stock equal to the greater of (i) the sum of the Accrued Value and Accrued Dividends with respect to such share of Series A Preferred Stock as of the date of such voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the affairs of the Company, and (ii) the amount a Holder would have received had such Holder,
14
4832-0308-0154.13



immediately prior to such voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the affairs of the Company, converted such share of Series A Preferred Stock into Company Common Stock (pursuant to Section 6). Holders shall not be entitled to any further payments in the event of any such voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the affairs of the Company other than what is expressly provided for in this Section 5 and will have no right or claim to any of the Company’s remaining assets.
(b)Partial Payment. If in connection with any distribution described in Section 5(a) above, the assets of the Company or proceeds therefrom are not sufficient to pay in full the aggregate liquidating distributions required to be paid pursuant to Section 5(a) to all Holders and the liquidating distributions payable to all holders of any Parity Stock, the amounts distributed to the Holders and to the holders of all such Parity Stock shall be paid pro rata in accordance with the respective aggregate liquidating distributions to which they would otherwise be entitled if all amounts payable thereon were paid in full.
(c)Merger, Consolidation and Sale of Assets Not Liquidation. For purposes of this Section 5, the sale, conveyance, exchange or transfer (for cash, shares of stock, securities or other consideration) of all or substantially all of the property and assets of the Company shall not be deemed a voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the affairs of the Company, nor shall the merger, consolidation, statutory exchange or any other business combination transaction of the Company into or with any other Person or the merger, consolidation, statutory exchange or any other business combination transaction of any other Person into or with the Company be deemed to be a voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the affairs of the Company.
SECTION 6. Right of the Holders to Convert.
(a)Subject to Section 6(a)(i) and Section 6(a)(ii), after May 31, 2021, each Holder shall have the right, at any time and at such Holder’s option, subject to the conversion procedures set forth in Section 8, to (1) convert each share of such Holder’s Series A Preferred Stock into the number of shares of Company Common Stock equal to (A) the sum of the Accrued Value and the Accrued PIK Dividends with respect to such share of Series A Preferred Stock as of the applicable Conversion Date divided by (B) the Conversion Price as of the applicable Conversion Date, and (2) receive a cash amount equal to any Unpaid Cash Dividends as of such date; provided, however that if the Conversion Date is prior to March 31, 2023, and if the payment of such Unpaid Cash Dividend would have the effect of causing a default under the Existing Credit Facility, then such Unpaid Cash Dividends shall be due and payable on the first Dividend Payment Date following the second (2nd) anniversary of the Original Issuance Date (provided, that if a Change of Control is consummated prior to the first Dividend Payment Date following the second (2nd) anniversary of the Original Issuance Date, then after satisfaction of all Required Credit Obligations (or consent by the required lenders of such Required Credit Obligations to the payment of such Unpaid Cash Dividends), such Unpaid Cash Dividends shall be due and payable upon the date of consummation of such Change of Control). The right of conversion may be exercised as to all or any portion of such Holder’s Series A Preferred Stock from time to time. Notwithstanding the foregoing in this Section 6(a) and excluding any conversion of shares of
15
4832-0308-0154.13



Series A Preferred Stock in connection with any voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution, winding up of the affairs of the Company pursuant to Section 5 or in connection with the consummation of a Change of Control after receipt of a Change of Control Notice from the Company pursuant to Section 9(b), in the event that any shares of Series A Preferred Stock are converted into shares of Company Common Stock prior to the Test Date:
(i)by a Holder (other than a transferee in connection with a Permitted Loan in accordance with Section 6(a)(ii)), and the Market Value of the shares of Company Common Stock issuable upon such conversion would be in excess of the Accrued Value plus the Accrued PIK Dividends of such shares immediately prior to such conversion, then the Company shall only be required to deliver (1) shares of Company Common Stock to the Holder having an aggregate Market Value that is equal to the Accrued Value plus the Accrued PIK Dividends of such shares of Series A Preferred Stock, and (2) any Unpaid Cash Dividends as of such date, which shall be settled in cash (provided, that if the Conversion Date is prior to March 31, 2023, and if the payment of such Unpaid Cash Dividend would have the effect of causing a default under the Existing Credit Facility, then such Unpaid Cash Dividends shall be due and payable on the first Dividend Payment Date following the second (2nd) anniversary of the Original Issuance Date (provided, that if a Change of Control is consummated prior to the first Dividend Payment Date following the second (2nd) anniversary of the Original Issuance Date, then after satisfaction of all Required Credit Obligations (or consent by the required lenders of such Required Credit Obligations to the payment of such Unpaid Cash Dividends), such Unpaid Cash Dividends shall be due and payable upon the date of consummation of such Change of Control)), and will have no further obligation; or
(ii)by a Holder that is a transferee in connection with a Permitted Loan, and the Market Value would be in excess of the 160% of the then-current Conversion Price, then the Company shall only be required to deliver (1) such number of shares of Company Common Stock (per share of Series A Preferred Stock) with a Market Value equal to the greater of (A) (x) the Accrued Value plus the Accrued PIK Dividends divided (y) by $90, and (B) (x) the Accrued Value plus the Accrued PIK Dividends divided by (y) the Permitted Loan Adjusted Conversion Price, and (2) any Unpaid Cash Dividends as of such date, which shall be settled in cash (provided, that if the Conversion Date is prior to March 31, 2023, and if the payment of such Unpaid Cash Dividend would have the effect of causing a default under the Existing Credit Facility, then such Unpaid Cash Dividends shall be due and payable on the first Dividend Payment Date following the second (2nd) anniversary of the Original Issuance Date (provided, that if a Change of Control is consummated prior to the first Dividend Payment Date following the second (2nd) anniversary of the Original Issuance Date, then after satisfaction of all Required Credit Obligations (or consent by the required lenders of such Required Credit Obligations to the payment of such Unpaid Cash Dividends), such Unpaid Cash Dividends shall be due and payable upon the date of consummation of such Change of Control)), and the Company will have no further obligation.
(b)The Company shall at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized and unissued Company Common Stock, solely for issuance upon the conversion of the Series A Preferred Stock, such number of shares of Company Common Stock as shall from time to time
16
4832-0308-0154.13



be issuable upon the conversion of all the shares of Series A Preferred Stock then outstanding. Any shares of Company Common Stock issued upon conversion of Series A Preferred Stock shall be duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable.
(c)Notwithstanding the foregoing or anything else in this Certificate of Designations to the contrary, (i) the Holders shall not have the right to acquire shares of Company Common Stock, and the Company shall not be required to issue shares of Company Common Stock, in excess of the Share Cap and (ii) no Holder shall have the right to acquire shares of Company Common Stock, and the Company shall not be required to issue shares of Company Common Stock to such Holder, in excess of such Holder’s Individual Holder Share Cap (collectively, the “Conversion Restrictions”), and in each case, the Company shall deliver, in lieu of any shares of Company Common Stock otherwise deliverable upon conversion in excess of the Conversion Restrictions, an amount of cash per share equal to the Closing Price on the Trading Day immediately prior to the Conversion Date (such cash amount, the “Excess Amount”); provided, however that, if the Conversion Date is prior to March 31, 2023, and if the payment of such Excess Amount would have the effect of causing a default under the Existing Credit Facility, then such Excess Amount shall be due and payable on the first Dividend Payment Date following the second (2nd) anniversary of the Original Issuance Date (provided, that if a Change of Control is consummated prior to the first Dividend Payment Date following the second (2nd) anniversary of the Original Issuance Date, then after satisfaction of all Required Credit Obligations (or consent by the required lenders of such Required Credit Obligations to the payment of such Excess Amount), such Excess Amount shall be due and payable upon the date of consummation of such Change of Control).
SECTION 7. Mandatory Conversion by the Company.
(a)At any time on or after the date that is the third (3rd) anniversary of the Original Issuance Date, if the VWAP per share of Company Common Stock was greater than the Mandatory Conversion Price for at least twenty consecutive (20) Trading Days in any period of thirty (30) Trading Days beginning no earlier than the third (3rd) anniversary of the Original Issuance Date (such thirty (30) Trading Day period, the “Trading Period”), the Company may elect to convert (a “Mandatory Conversion”) all, but not less than all, of the outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock into shares of Company Common Stock (the date selected by the Company for any Mandatory Conversion pursuant to this Section 7(a), the “Mandatory Conversion Date”). In the case of a Mandatory Conversion, (1) each share of Series A Preferred Stock then outstanding shall be converted into (i) the number of shares of Company Common Stock equal to the quotient of (A) the sum of the Accrued Value and the Accrued PIK Dividends with respect to such share of Series A Preferred Stock as of the Mandatory Conversion Date divided by (B) the Conversion Price of such share in effect as of the Mandatory Conversion Date, and (2) any Unpaid Cash Dividends as of such date shall be settled in cash; provided, however, that, if as a result of the Conversion Restrictions, all shares of Series A Preferred Stock may not be converted into shares of Company Common Stock at such time, the Company shall deliver the maximum number of shares of Company Common Stock that may be issued upon conversion of the Series A Preferred Stock at such time, together with an amount in cash equal to the Excess
17
4832-0308-0154.13



Amount in lieu of any such shares of Company Common Stock otherwise deliverable upon a Mandatory Conversion in excess of the Conversion Restrictions.
(b)Notice of Mandatory Conversion. If the Company elects to effect a Mandatory Conversion, the Company shall, within twenty (20) Business Days following the completion of the applicable thirty (30) day Trading Period referred to in Section 7(a) above, provide notice of Mandatory Conversion to each Holder (such notice, a “Notice of Mandatory Conversion”). For the avoidance of doubt, a Notice of Mandatory Conversion does not limit a Holder’s right to convert on a Conversion Date prior to the Mandatory Conversion Date. The Mandatory Conversion Date selected by the Company shall be no less than thirty (30) Business Days and no more than forty-five (45) Business Days after the date on which the Company provides the Notice of Mandatory Conversion to the Holders. The Notice of Mandatory Conversion shall state the Mandatory Conversion Date selected by the Company.
SECTION 8. Conversion Procedures and Effect of Conversion.
(a)Conversion Procedure. A Holder must do each of the following in order to convert shares of Series A Preferred Stock pursuant to this Section 8(a):
(i)in the case of a conversion pursuant to Section 6(a), complete and manually sign the conversion notice provided by the Conversion Agent (the “Conversion Notice”), and deliver such notice to the Conversion Agent; provided, however that a Conversion Notice may be conditional on the completion of a Change of Control or other corporate transaction;
(ii)surrender to the Conversion Agent the certificate or certificates (if any) representing the shares of Series A Preferred Stock to be converted (or, if such Holder alleges that such certificate or certificates have been lost, stolen or destroyed, a lost certificate or certificates affidavit and agreement reasonably acceptable to the Company to indemnify the Company against any claim that may be made against the Company on account of the alleged loss, theft or destruction of such certificate or certificates);
(iii)if required, furnish appropriate endorsements and transfer documents in a form reasonably acceptable to the Company; and
(iv)if required, pay any stock transfer, documentary, stamp or similar taxes not payable by the Company pursuant to Section 19.
The foregoing clauses (ii), (iii) and (iv) shall be conditions to the issuance of shares of Company Common Stock to the Holders in the event of a Mandatory Conversion pursuant to Section 7 (but, for the avoidance of doubt, not to the Mandatory Conversion of the shares of Series A Preferred Stock on the Mandatory Conversion Date, which such Mandatory Conversion shall be deemed to occur automatically on the Conversion Date). The Holder may, in respect of a Mandatory Conversion, deliver a notice to the Conversion Agent specifying, in respect of the deliverable shares of Company Common Stock, a delivery method of either book-entry basis,
18
4832-0308-0154.13



through the facilities of The Depositary Trust Company (if eligible) or certificated form. If no such notice is delivered, the Holder shall be deemed to have chosen delivery by book-entry.
The “Conversion Date” means (A) with respect to conversion of any shares of Series A Preferred Stock at the option of any Holder pursuant to Section 6(a), the date on which such Holder complies with the procedures in this Section 8(a) (including the satisfaction of any conditions to conversion set forth in the Conversion Notice) and (B) with respect to Mandatory Conversion pursuant to Section 7(a), the Mandatory Conversion Date.
(b)Effect of Conversion. Effective immediately prior to the close of business on the Conversion Date applicable to any shares of Series A Preferred Stock, Dividends shall no longer accrue or be declared on any such shares of Series A Preferred Stock, and such shares of Series A Preferred Stock shall cease to be outstanding, be retired and canceled and may not be reissued as shares of such series.
(c)Record Holder of Underlying Securities as of Conversion Date. The Person or Persons entitled to receive the Company Common Stock and, to the extent applicable, cash, securities or other property issuable upon conversion of Series A Preferred Stock on a Conversion Date shall be treated for all purposes as the record holder(s) of such shares of Company Common Stock and/or cash, securities or other property as of the close of business on such Conversion Date. As promptly as practicable on or after the Conversion Date and compliance by the applicable Holder with the relevant procedures contained in Section 8(a) (and in any event no later than five (5) Trading Days thereafter; provided, however that, if a written notice from the Holder in accordance with Section 8(a) specifies a date of delivery for any shares of Company Common Stock, such shares shall be delivered on the date so specified, which shall be no earlier than the second (2nd) Business Day immediately following the date of such notice (or such later date, not to exceed the fifth (5th) Business Day immediately following the date of such notice, if, prior to the Conversion Date, the Transfer Agent has delivered written notice to the Holders of Series A Preferred Stock that it is unable deliver shares of Company Common Stock within two (2) Business Days following any Conversion Date) and no later than the seventh (7th) Business Day thereafter), the Company shall issue the number of whole shares of Company Common Stock issuable upon conversion (and deliver any Excess Amount) and, to the extent applicable, any cash, securities or other property issuable thereon. Such delivery of shares of Company Common Stock, securities or other property shall be made by book-entry or, at the request of the Holder, through the facilities of The Depositary Trust Company (if eligible), or in certificated form. Any such certificate or certificates shall be delivered by the Company to the appropriate Holder on a book-entry basis, through the facilities of The Depositary Trust Company (if eligible), or by mailing certificates evidencing the shares to the Holders, in each case at their respective addresses as set forth in the Conversion Notice (in the case of a conversion pursuant to Section 6(a)) or in the records of the Company or as set forth in a notice from the Holder to the Conversion Agent, as applicable (in the case of a Mandatory Conversion). In the event that a Holder shall not by written notice designate the name in which shares of Company Common Stock and, to the extent applicable, cash, securities or other property to be delivered upon conversion of shares of Series A Preferred Stock should be registered or paid, or the manner in which such shares, cash, securities or other property should be delivered, the
19
4832-0308-0154.13



Company shall be entitled to register and deliver such shares, securities or other property, and make such payment, in the name of the Holder and in the manner shown on the records of the Company.
(d)Status of Converted or Reacquired Shares. Shares of Series A Preferred Stock converted in accordance with this Certificate of Designations, or otherwise acquired by the Company in any manner whatsoever, shall be retired promptly after the conversion or acquisition thereof and shall not be reissued as shares of such series. All such shares shall, upon their retirement and any filing required by the DGCL, become authorized but unissued shares of Preferred Stock, without designation as to series until such shares are once more designated as part of a particular series by the Board pursuant to the provisions of the Certificate of Incorporation.
SECTION 9. Change of Control.
(a)Change of Control Rights.
(i)Company’s Change of Control Call. Upon the occurrence of a Change of Control, and subject to the right of the Holders to convert the Series A Preferred Stock pursuant to Section 6 prior to any such purchase, the Company shall have the option to purchase (a “Change of Control Call”) all, but not less than all, of the then outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock for which any Holder has not elected to exercise a Change of Control Put pursuant to Section 9(b) at a purchase price per share of Series A Preferred Stock, payable in cash (in the case of clause (i)) or the applicable consideration (in the case of clause (ii)), equal to the greater of (i) the sum of (x) the product of (A) the sum of the Accrued Value plus the Accrued PIK Dividends of the shares of Series A Preferred Stock to be purchased by the Company, as of the applicable Change of Control Purchase Date, multiplied by (B) 140%, plus (y) any Unpaid Cash Dividends as of such date, or (ii) the amount of cash and/or other assets such Holder would have received in the transaction constituting a Change of Control had such Holder, immediately prior to such Change of Control, converted such shares of Series A Preferred Stock into Company Common Stock (pursuant to Section 6(a)), including without duplication any Unpaid Cash Dividends that would otherwise be settled in cash pursuant to such conversion; provided, however that, if the kind or amount of securities, cash and other property receivable in such transaction is not the same for each share of Company Common Stock held immediately prior to such transaction by a Person, then the kind and amount of securities, cash and other property receivable upon Change of Control Call following such transaction will be deemed to be the weighted average of the types and amounts of consideration received by the holders of Company Common Stock as determined by the Board (the “Change of Control Call Price”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company will not be permitted to exercise the Change of Control Call, or otherwise send a Call Notice pursuant to this Section 9 unless the Company or the acquiring or surviving Person in such Change of Control has or will have sufficient funds legally available to fully pay the Change of Control Call Price in respect of all shares of Series A Preferred Stock subject to a Call Notice.
(ii)Holder’s Change of Control Put. Subject to compliance with the procedures set forth in this Section 9 and the application of Section 9(i), upon the occurrence of
20
4832-0308-0154.13



a Change of Control, each Holder of outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock shall have the option to require the Company to purchase (a “Change of Control Put”) any or all of its shares of Series A Preferred Stock at a purchase price per share of Series A Preferred Stock, payable in cash (in the case of clause (i)) or the applicable consideration (in the case of clause (ii)), equal to, at the Holder’s election (or if the Holder chooses to exercise the Change of Control Put but does not so elect, the greater of) (i) the sum of (x) the product of (A) the sum of the Accrued Value plus the Accrued PIK Dividends of the shares of Series A Preferred Stock to be purchased by the Company, as of the applicable Change of Control Purchase Date, multiplied by (B) 135%, plus (y) any Unpaid Cash Dividends as of such date or (ii) the amount of cash and/or other assets such Holder would have received in the transaction constituting a Change of Control had such Holder, immediately prior to such Change of Control, converted such shares of Series A Preferred Stock into Company Common Stock (pursuant to Section 6(a)), including without duplication any Unpaid Cash Dividends that would otherwise be settled in cash pursuant to such conversion; provided, however that, if the kind or amount of securities, cash and other property receivable in such transaction is not the same for each share of Company Common Stock held immediately prior to such transaction by a Person, then the kind and amount of securities, cash and other property receivable upon Change of Control Put following such transaction will be deemed to be the weighted average of the types and amounts of consideration received by the holders of Company Common Stock as determined by the Board (the “Change of Control Put Price”).
(b)Change of Control Notice. On or before the twentieth (20th) Business Day prior to the date on which the Company anticipates consummating a Change of Control (or, if later, promptly after the Company discovers that a Change of Control may occur), a written notice shall be sent by or on behalf of the Company to the Holders as they appear in the records of the Company, which notice shall contain (the “Change of Control Notice”):

At any time after the close of business on the Change of Control Put Deadline until the effective date of the Change of Control, a written notice may be sent by or on behalf of the Company to the Holders as they appear in the records of the Company, which notice shall contain (the “Call Notice”):

To receive payment of the Change of Control Call Price, a Holder must, in accordance with the instructions set forth in the Call Notice, surrender to the Conversion Agent the certificates representing the shares of Series A Preferred Stock to be purchased by the Company (as indicated in the Call Notice) or lost stock affidavits therefor and a notice including wire transfer instructions for the payment of the Change of
22
4832-0308-0154.13



Control Call Price, provided, however, for the avoidance of doubt, any failure by a Holder to surrender such Holder’s certificates representing the shares of Series A Preferred Stock to be purchased pursuant to the Change of Control Call shall not delay the associated purchase and the Change of Control Call shall be deemed to occur automatically on the Change of Control Purchase Date upon the transfer of the Change of Control Call Price to such Holder.
(f)Delivery upon Change of Control Call or Change of Control Put. Upon a Change of Control Call or Change of Control Put, but subject to and contingent upon the closing of the Change of Control, subject to Section 9(i) below, the Company (or its successor) shall deliver or cause to be delivered to the Holder by wire transfer the Change of Control Call Price or Change of Control Put Price, as applicable, of such Holder’s shares of Series A Preferred Stock.
(g)Treatment of Shares. Until payment of the Change of Control Put Price or Change of Control Call Price, as applicable, such share of Series A Preferred Stock will remain outstanding and will continue to be entitled to all of the powers, designations, preferences and other rights provided herein, including conversion, dividend and voting rights. Any shares of Series A Preferred Stock that are converted prior to or on the Change of Control Purchase Date in accordance with this Certificate of Designations shall not be entitled to receive any payment of the Change of Control Put Price or Change of Control Call Price, as applicable.
(h)Partial Exercise of Change of Control Put. In the event that a Change of Control Put is effected with respect to shares of Series A Preferred Stock representing less than all the shares of Series A Preferred Stock held by a Holder and the Company does not elect to exercise a Change of Control Call with respect to such remaining shares, following such Change of Control Put the Company shall execute and deliver to such Holder, at the expense of the Company, a certificate evidencing the shares of Series A Preferred Stock held by the Holder as to which a Change of Control Put and Change of Control Call was not effected (or book-entry interests representing such shares).
(i)Sufficient Funds. If the Company shall not have sufficient funds legally available under applicable law to purchase all shares of Series A Preferred Stock for which Holders have elected to exercise their Change of Control Put pursuant to this Section 9 after satisfaction of all Required Credit Obligations (or consent by the required lenders of such Required Credit Obligations to the payment of the aggregate Change of Control Put Price) (the “Required Number of Shares”), the Company shall (i) purchase, pro rata among the Holders that have elected to exercise their Change of Control Put pursuant to this Section 9, a number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock with an aggregate Change of Control Put Price equal to the amount legally available for the purchase of shares of Series A Preferred Stock under applicable law following satisfaction of the Required Credit Obligations (or consent by the required lenders of such Required Credit Obligations to the payment of the aggregate Change of Control Put Price) and (ii) purchase any shares of Series A Preferred Stock not purchased because of the foregoing limitations at the applicable Change of Control Put Price as soon as practicable after the Company is able to make such purchase out of funds legally available for the purchase of such shares of Series A Preferred Stock following satisfaction of any Required Credit Obligations (or consent by the required lenders of such Required Credit Obligations to the payment of the
23
4832-0308-0154.13



aggregate Change of Control Put Price). The inability of the Company (or its successor) to make a purchase payment for any reason shall not relieve the Company (or its successor) from its obligation to effect any required purchase when, as and if permitted by applicable law. If the Company fails to pay the Change of Control Put Price in full on the Change of Control Purchase Date in accordance with this Section 9 in respect of some or all of the shares of Series A Preferred Stock to be repurchased pursuant to the Change of Control Put, the then-current rate of Cash Dividends in accordance with Section 4(b) shall increase by 2.00% on each Dividend Payment Date following the Change of Control Purchase Date, accruing daily from the Change of Control Purchase Date until an amount equal to the Change of Control Put Price, plus all Accrued Dividends thereon, is paid in full in respect of such shares of Series A Preferred Stock. Nothing herein shall limit a Holder’s right to pursue any other remedies available to it hereunder, at law or in equity, including, without limitation, a decree of specific performance and/or injunctive relief with respect to the Company’s failure to comply with its obligations under this Section 9.
(j)Change of Control Agreements. The Company shall not enter into any agreement for a transaction constituting a Change of Control unless (i) such agreement provides for or does not interfere with or prevent (as applicable) the exercise by the Holders of their Change of Control Put in a manner that is consistent with and gives effect to this Section 9, and (ii) the acquiring or surviving Person in such Change of Control represents or covenants, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Board acting in good faith, that at the closing of such Change of Control such Person shall have sufficient funds, together with funds of the Company legally available therefor and following satisfaction of the Required Credit Obligations (or consent by the required lenders of such Required Credit Obligations to the payment of the aggregate Change of Control Put Price or Change of Control Call Price), to pay the Change of Control Put Price or Change of Control Call Price, as applicable, in respect of shares of Series A Preferred Stock that have not been converted into Company Common Stock prior to the Change of Control Effective Date pursuant to Section 6 or Section 7, as applicable.
(k)Upon full payment of the Change of Control Call Price or Change of Control Put Price, as applicable, for any shares of Series A Preferred Stock subject to a Change of Control Call or Change of Control Put, as applicable, such shares of Series A Preferred Stock will no longer be deemed to be outstanding for any purpose, shall be retired and canceled and may not be reissued as shares of such series; and all rights (except the right to receive the Change of Control Call Price or Change of Control Put Price, as applicable) of the Holder of such shares of Series A Preferred Stock shall cease and terminate with respect to such shares.
SECTION 10. Redemption.
(a)Redemption at the Option of the Holder.
(i)Redemption Procedures.
(A)At any time on or after the Eligible Redemption Date, each Holder of shares of Series A Preferred Stock shall have the right (a “Holder Redemption Right”) to require the Company to redeem any or all of the shares of Series A
24
4832-0308-0154.13



Preferred Stock of such Holder then outstanding, in each case to the extent not prohibited by law, at the Redemption Price. The Redemption Price shall be payable only in cash.
(B)To exercise its Holder Redemption Right pursuant to this Section 10(a), a Holder must, no later than 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the date that is no more than one hundred twenty (120), nor less than thirty (30), calendar days prior to the date of such redemption specified therein (the “Designated Redemption Date”), deliver written notice thereof (a “Notice of Holder Redemption”) to the Company and the Transfer Agent and shall, on or prior to the Designated Redemption Date, surrender to the Transfer Agent the certificates representing the shares of Series A Preferred Stock to be redeemed by the Company; provided, that, such Holder will be entitled to revoke its Notice of Holder Redemption at any time but no later than ten (10) Business Days prior to the Designated Redemption Date. On such Designated Redemption Date, the Company shall deliver or cause to be delivered to each Holder that has exercised its Holder Redemption Right with respect to such Designated Redemption Date, cash by wire transfer, equal to the Redemption Price of the shares of Series A Preferred Stock in respect of which such Holder has delivered (and has not revoked in accordance with this Section 10(a)(i)(B)) a Notice of Holder Redemption in accordance herewith.
(C)If a Holder does not elect to exercise its Holder Redemption Right pursuant to this Section 10(a) with respect to all of its shares of Series A Preferred Stock (and has not revoked in accordance with Section 10(a)(i)(B)), the shares of Series A Preferred Stock held by it and not surrendered for redemption by the Company will remain outstanding until otherwise subsequently converted, redeemed, reclassified or canceled. From and after the Redemption Date with respect to any share of Series A Preferred Stock for which a Holder elected to effect a Holder Redemption Right and the Company has redeemed in accordance with the provisions of this Section 10(a), (i) Dividends shall cease to accrue on such share, (ii) such share shall no longer be deemed outstanding and (iii) all rights with respect to such share shall cease and terminate. For the avoidance of doubt, notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, until a share of Series A Preferred Stock is redeemed by the payment in full of the applicable Redemption Price, such share of Series A Preferred Stock will remain outstanding and will be entitled to all of the powers, designations, preferences and other rights provided herein including the right to convert.
(D)In the event that a Holder Redemption Right is exercised with respect to shares of Series A Preferred Stock representing less than all the shares of Series A Preferred Stock held by a Holder, upon such redemption, the Company shall execute and deliver to such Holder, at the expense of the Company, a certificate representing the shares of Series A Preferred Stock held by
25
4832-0308-0154.13



the Holder as to which a Holder Redemption Right was not exercised (or book-entry interests representing such shares).
(E)If the Company shall not have sufficient funds legally available under applicable law to redeem, as of any Designated Redemption Date, all shares of Series A Preferred Stock with respect to which Holders have exercised a Holder Redemption Right pursuant to Section 10(a), the Company shall redeem on such Designated Redemption Date, pro rata among the Holders that have exercised their Holder Redemption Right, a number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock with an aggregate Redemption Price equal to the amount legally available under applicable law for the redemption of shares of Series A Preferred Stock on such Designated Redemption Date. As soon as practicable following such time that the Company has sufficient funds legally available under applicable law to redeem such shares of Series A Preferred Stock not redeemed because of the foregoing limitation at the applicable Redemption Price, the Company shall provide notice to the Holders of the availability of such funds, and the Holders may, within ten (10) Business Days of receipt of such notice (the “Final Redemption Exercise Date”), elect to invoke their Holder Redemption Right pursuant to Section 10(a) with respect to the shares of Series A Preferred Stock that were not redeemed on the Designated Redemption Date. In addition, if the Company does not make the redemption payment as of any Designated Redemption Date relating to all of the shares of Series A Preferred Stock with respect to which Holders have exercised a Holder Redemption Right pursuant to Section 10(a), the then-current rate of Cash Dividends in accordance with Section 4(b) the (“Pre-Redemption Cash Dividend Rate”) shall increase by 2.00%, on each Dividend Payment Date following the Designated Redemption Date, accruing daily from the Designated Redemption Date until the Redemption Price is paid in full in respect of such shares of Series A Preferred Stock; provided, however that on the next Dividend Payment Date following the Final Redemption Exercise Date, the rate of Cash Dividends shall return to the Pre-Redemption Cash Dividend Rate with respect to each share of Series A Preferred Stock for which a Holder did not elect to exercise its Holder Redemption Right prior to the Final Redemption Exercise Date pursuant to the prior sentence of this Section 10(a)(i)(E). The inability of the Company to make a redemption payment for any reason shall not relieve the Company from its obligation to effect any required redemption when, as and if permitted by applicable law.
(b)Redemption at the Option of the Company. At any time on or after the Eligible Redemption Date, the Company shall have the right (the “Company Redemption Right”) to redeem all, but not less than all, of the shares of Series A Preferred Stock then outstanding, in each case to the extent not prohibited by law, at the Redemption Price. The Redemption Price shall be payable only in cash.
(i)Redemption Prohibited in Certain Circumstances. The Company will not be permitted to exercise the Company Redemption Right, or otherwise send a Notice of
26
4832-0308-0154.13



Company Redemption in respect of the redemption of, any Series A Preferred Stock pursuant to this Section 10(b) unless the Company has sufficient funds legally available to fully pay the Redemption Price in respect of all shares of Series A Preferred Stock called for redemption.
(ii)Redemption Procedures. To exercise its Company Redemption Right pursuant to this Section 10(b), the Company must, no later than 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the date that is no more than one hundred twenty (120), nor less than thirty (30), calendar days prior to the Designated Redemption Date, deliver written notice thereof (a “Notice of Company Redemption”) to each Holder of Series A Preferred Stock then-outstanding and the Transfer Agent. On such Designated Redemption Date, the Company shall deliver or cause to be delivered to each Holder cash by wire transfer, equal to the Redemption Price of the shares of Series A Preferred Stock then-held by such Holder. On the Designated Redemption Date, each Holder shall, on or prior to the Designated Redemption Date, surrender to the Transfer Agent the certificates representing the shares of Series A Preferred Stock to be redeemed by the Company; provided, however, for the avoidance of doubt, any failure by the Holder to surrender such Holder’s certificates representing the shares of Series A Preferred Stock to be redeemed shall not delay the associated redemption and the redemption shall be deemed to occur automatically on the Designated Redemption Date upon the transfer of the Redemption Price of the shares of Series A Preferred Stock then-held by such Holder to such Holder. For the avoidance of doubt, a Holder shall be permitted to deliver a Conversion Notice at any time prior to the date that is two (2) Business Days prior to the Designated Redemption Date and exercise its conversion rights pursuant to, and in accordance with the conversion procedures set forth in, Section 6. From and after the Designated Redemption Date on which the Company has redeemed any share of Series A Preferred Stock in accordance with the provisions of this Section 10(b), (i) Dividends shall cease to accrue on such share, (ii) such share shall no longer be deemed outstanding and (iii) all rights with respect to such share shall cease and terminate.
SECTION 11. Adjustments to the Conversion Price.
(a)Conversion Price Resets.
(i)Initial Conversion Price Reset. On May 31, 2021, the Conversion Price shall be reset to equal 125% of the arithmetic average of the VWAP per share of Company Common Stock for each Trading Day during the one hundred twenty (120) consecutive day period following January 29, 2021; provided, however that, in the event that the adjusted Conversion Price would equal a price per share greater than $90 (as equitably adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, combinations, recapitalizations and similar events), it shall be deemed to be $90 (as equitably adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, combinations, recapitalizations and similar events) for purposes of this adjustment to the Conversion Price, and in the event that the adjusted Conversion Price would equal a price per share lower than $50 (as equitably adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, combinations, recapitalizations and similar events), it shall be deemed to be $50 (as equitably adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, combinations, recapitalizations and similar events) for purposes of this adjustment to the Conversion Price, in each case subject to adjustment.
27
4832-0308-0154.13



(ii)Test Date Conversion Price Reset. On the Test Date, if the arithmetic average of the VWAP for the twenty (20) consecutive Trading Day period ending on the day prior to the Test Date (the “Test Price”) is in excess of 160% of the then-current Conversion Price, then on the Test Date, the Conversion Price shall be adjusted based on the following formula; provided, however that, in the event that the adjusted Conversion Price would equal a price per share greater than $90 (as equitably adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, combinations, recapitalizations and similar events), it shall be deemed to be $90 (as equitably adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, combinations, recapitalizations and similar events) for purposes of this adjustment to the Conversion Price, and in the event that the adjusted Conversion Price would equal a price per share lower than $50 (as equitably adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, combinations, recapitalizations and similar events), it shall be deemed to be $50 (as equitably adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, combinations, recapitalizations and similar events) for purposes of this adjustment to the Conversion Price:
CP1 = AV / ( ( AS x ( AV / CP0 ) ) / TP )
where:
CP0 = the Conversion Price in effect on the close of business on the day prior to the Test Date
CP1 = the new Conversion Price in effect immediately after the close of business on the day prior to the Test Date
AS = equals the sum of the Dilution Threshold Amount plus the Incremental Value
AV = the sum of the Accrued Value plus the Accrued PIK Dividends as of the close of business on the day prior to the Test Date
TP = the Test Price
For purposes of the above formula:
Dilution Threshold Amount” means an amount equal to CP0 multiplied by 1.6; and
Incremental Value” means an amount equal to the product of (A) the difference of (i) the Test Price minus (ii) the Dilution Threshold Amount, multiplied by (B) a fraction equal to 1/3
(b)Anti-Dilution Adjustments. The Conversion Price will be subject to adjustment, without duplication, upon the occurrence of the following events, except that the Company shall not make any adjustment to the Conversion Price if a Holder of the Series A Preferred Stock participates, at the same time and upon the same terms as holders of Company Common Stock and solely as a result of holding shares of Series A Preferred Stock, in any transaction described in this Section 11(b), without having to convert its Series A Preferred Stock, as if it held a number of shares of Company Common Stock equal to the Accrued Value of each share of Series A Preferred Stock held by such Holder divided by the then-current Conversion Price:
28
4832-0308-0154.13



(i)Stock Dividends, Splits and Combinations. If the Company issues solely shares of Company Common Stock as a dividend or distribution on all or substantially all shares of the Company Common Stock, or if the Company effects a stock split or a stock combination of the Company Common Stock (in each case, excluding an issuance solely pursuant to a Reorganization Event, as to which Section 12 will apply), then the Conversion Price will be adjusted based on the following formula:
https://cdn.kscope.io/4c8e7d2bb925faacafa91b628749dd82-image_01a.jpg
where:
CP0 =     the Conversion Price in effect immediately before the close of business on the Record Date for such dividend or distribution, or immediately before the close of business on the effective date of such stock split or stock combination, as applicable;
CP1 =     the Conversion Price in effect immediately after the close of business on such Record Date or effective date, as applicable;
OS0 =     the number of shares of Company Common Stock outstanding immediately before the close of business on such Record Date or effective date, as applicable, without giving effect to such dividend, distribution, stock split or stock combination; and
OS1 =     the number of shares of Company Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to such dividend, distribution, stock split or stock combination.
If any dividend, distribution, stock split or stock combination of the type described in this Section 11(b)(i) is declared or announced, but not so paid or made, then the Conversion Price will be readjusted, effective as of the date the Board of Directors, or any Officer acting pursuant to authority conferred by the Board of Directors, determines not to pay such dividend or distribution or to effect such stock split or stock combination, to the Conversion Price that would then be in effect had such dividend, distribution, stock split or stock combination not been declared or announced.
(ii)Rights, Options and Warrants. If the Company distributes, to all or substantially all holders of Company Common Stock, rights, options or warrants (other than rights issued or otherwise distributed pursuant to a stockholder rights plan) entitling such holders, for a period of not more than forty-five (45) calendar days after the Record Date of such distribution, to subscribe for or purchase shares of Company Common Stock at a price per share that is less than the average of the Closing Prices per share of Company Common Stock for the ten (10) consecutive Trading Days ending on, and including, the Trading Day
29
4832-0308-0154.13



immediately before the date such distribution is announced, then the Conversion Price will be decreased based on the following formula:
https://cdn.kscope.io/4c8e7d2bb925faacafa91b628749dd82-image_11a.jpg
where:
CP0 =     the Conversion Price in effect immediately before the close of business on such Record Date;
CP1 =     the Conversion Price in effect immediately after the close of business on such Record Date;
OS =     the number of shares of Company Common Stock outstanding immediately before the close of business on such Record Date;
Y =     a number of shares of Company Common Stock obtained by dividing (x) the aggregate price payable to exercise such rights, options or warrants by (y) the average of the Closing Price per share of Company Common Stock for the ten (10) consecutive Trading Days ending on, and including, the Trading Day immediately before the date such distribution is announced; and
X =     the total number of shares of Company Common Stock issuable pursuant to such rights, options or warrants.
provided, however, that (A) the Conversion Price will not be adjusted pursuant to this Section 11(b)(ii) solely as a result of an Exempt Issuance and (B) the issuance of shares of Company Common Stock issuable pursuant to the exercise, vesting or conversion of such rights, options or warrants will not constitute an additional issuance or sale of Company Common Stock.
To the extent such rights, options or warrants are not so distributed, the Conversion Price will be readjusted to the Conversion Price that would then be in effect had the decrease to the Conversion Price for such distribution been made on the basis of only the rights, options or warrants, if any, actually distributed. In addition, to the extent that shares of Company Common Stock are not delivered after the expiration of such rights, options or warrants (including as a result of such rights, options or warrants not being exercised), the Conversion Price will be readjusted to the Conversion Price that would then be in effect had the decrease to the Conversion Price for such distribution been made on the basis of delivery of only the number of shares of Company Common Stock actually delivered upon exercise of such rights, option or warrants.
For purposes of this Section 11(b)(ii), in determining whether any rights, options or warrants entitle holders of Company Common Stock to subscribe for or purchase shares of Company Common Stock at a price per share that is less than the average of the Closing Prices
30
4832-0308-0154.13



per share of Company Common Stock for the ten (10) consecutive Trading Days ending on, and including, the Trading Day immediately before the date the distribution of such rights, options or warrants is announced, and in determining the aggregate price payable to exercise such rights, options or warrants, there will be taken into account any consideration the Company receives for such rights, options or warrants and any amount payable on exercise thereof, with the value of such consideration, if not cash, to be determined by the Board of Directors.
(iii)Distribution Transactions and Other Distributed Property.
(A)Distributions Other than Distribution Transactions. If the Company distributes shares of its Capital Stock, evidences of the Company’s indebtedness or other assets or property of the Company, or rights, options or warrants to acquire the Company’s Capital Stock or other securities, to all or substantially all holders of the Company Common Stock, excluding:
(I)dividends, distributions, rights, options or warrants for which an adjustment to the Conversion Price is required pursuant to Section 11(b)(i) or Section 11(b)(ii);
(II)dividends or distributions paid exclusively in cash;
(III)rights issued or otherwise distributed pursuant to a stockholder rights plan, except to the extent provided in Section 11(d);
(IV)Distribution Transactions for which an adjustment to the Conversion Price is required pursuant to Section 11(b)(iii)(B);
(V)a distribution solely pursuant to a tender offer or exchange offer for shares of Company Common Stock, as to which Section 11(b)(ii) will apply; and
(VI)a distribution solely pursuant to a Reorganization Event, as to which Section 12 will apply, then the Conversion Price will be decreased based on the following formula:
https://cdn.kscope.io/4c8e7d2bb925faacafa91b628749dd82-image_21a.jpg
where:
CP0 =     the Conversion Price in effect immediately before the close of business on the Record Date for such distribution;
CP1 =     the Conversion Price in effect immediately after the close of business on such Record Date;
31
4832-0308-0154.13



SP =     the average of the Closing Prices per share of Company Common Stock for the ten (10) consecutive Trading Days ending on, and including, the Trading Day immediately before the Ex-Dividend Date for such distribution; and
FMV =     the fair market value (as determined by the Board of Di
