Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

From July 14, 2023 through July 20, 2023 (each such date, a “First Tranche Closing Date”), FOXO Technologies Inc. (the “Company”) entered into three separate Stock Purchase Agreements (the “Stock Purchase Agreements”), which have substantially similar terms, with three accredited investors (the “Buyers”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue and sell to the Buyers, in a private placement (the “Offering”), in two separate tranches each, an aggregate of up to 5,625,000 shares of the Company’s Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Common Stock”), at a price of $0.08 per share (the “Per Share Price”), for aggregate gross proceeds of $450,000.

 

Pursuant to the terms of the Stock Purchase Agreements, the Buyers initially purchased an aggregate of 2,812,500 shares of Common Stock (the “First Tranche Shares”) on the applicable First Tranche Closing Dates, and agreed to purchase an aggregate of 2,812,500 additional shares of Common Stock (the “Second Tranche Shares,” and collectively with the First Tranche Shares, the “Shares”) upon the effectiveness of the Resale Registration Statement (as defined below).

 

Concurrently with the execution of each Stock Purchase Agreement, the Company and the applicable Buyer entered into a Registration Rights Agreement (each, a “Registration Rights Agreement”), dated as of the applicable First Tranche Closing Date, pursuant to which the Company is required, among other things, to (i) file a resale registration statement (the “Resale Registration Statement”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) covering the Shares within seven (7) calendar days following the execution of the applicable Registration Rights Agreement (the “Filing Deadline”) and (ii) use its commercially reasonable efforts to have the Resale Registration Statement declared effective by the SEC no later than forty-five (45) calendar days following the Filing Deadline (or, in the event of a substantive review by the SEC, ninety (90) calendar days following the Filing Deadline) (the “Effectiveness Deadline”); provided, however, if the SEC notifies the Company that the Resale Registration Statement will not be reviewed or is no longer subject to further review and comments, then the Effectiveness Deadline will be the fifth (5th) trading day following the date on which the Company is so notified (so long as the date of such fifth (5th) trading day precedes the dates otherwise required).

 

Pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreements, if, during the period from the applicable First Tranche Closing Date until ten (10) days after the effective date of the Resale Registration Statement, the Company issues or sells any shares of Common Stock at a price per share less than the Per Share Price (a “Share Dilutive Issuance”), except for Exempt Issuances (as defined in the Stock Purchase Agreements), then the Company will have to pay to such Buyer, within two (2) business days after such Share Dilutive Issuance, a cash penalty in an amount equal to the number of Shares theretofore purchased by such Buyer under the applicable Stock Purchase Agreement multiplied by the difference between (i) the Per Share Price and (ii) the greater of (A) the price per share of Common Stock paid in the Share Dilutive Issuance and (B) $0.02 (the “Floor Price”).

 

Additionally, pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreements, the Company is not permitted, from the date of the applicable Stock Purchase Agreement until ten (10) days after the effective date of the Resale Registration Statement, to issue or sell, enter into any agreement to issue or sell, or announce the issuance or sale or proposed issuance or sale of any Common Stock Equivalents (as defined in the Stock Purchase Agreements) or issue or sell, enter into any agreement to issue or sell, or announce the issuance or sale or proposed issuance or sale of shares of Common Stock, pursuant to which shares of Common Stock may be acquired at a per share price less than the Floor Price, except for (a) Exempt Issuances or (b) the filing of a registration statement so long as such registration statement is not declared effective by the SEC during the period from the date of the applicable Stock Purchase Agreement until ten (10) days after the effective date of the Resale Registration Statement.

 

The Stock Purchase Agreements and the Registration Rights Agreements contain customary representations, warranties, conditions and indemnification obligations of the parties, which were made only for purposes of such Stock Purchase Agreements and Registration Rights Agreements as of specific dates and solely for the benefit of the parties, and which may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the parties.

 

 

 

 

The Shares issued and to be issued pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreements were, and will be, sold pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) and Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated thereunder. Each Buyer is an “accredited investor” as that term is defined in Rule 501(a)(1) under the Securities Act, and has purchased, and will purchase, the Shares as an investment in the Offering, which did not involve a general solicitation. The Shares have not been registered under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States in the absence of an effective registration statement or exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act. This Current Report on Form 8-K shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state.

 

Joseph Gunnar & Co., LLC acted as the Company’s sole placement agent (the “Placement Agent”) on a “commercially reasonable efforts” and exclusive basis in connection with the Offering, pursuant to the terms of that certain Engagement Letter, dated as of January 5, 2023, by and between the Company and the Placement Agent. The Placement Agent’s compensation under the Engagement Letter includes: (i) a cash fee, payable upon each closing of the Offering, equal to ten percent (10.0%) of the gross proceeds received by the Company in the Offering and (ii) the reimbursement of up to a total of $75,000 for certain incurred expenses and legal fees.

 

The foregoing summaries of the Stock Purchase Agreements and the Registration Rights Agreements do not purport to be complete descriptions and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the forms of Stock Purchase Agreement and Registration Rights Agreement, which are attached hereto as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2, respectively, and are incorporated herein by reference.

  

Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

 

To the extent required by this Item 3.02, the information set forth in Item 1.01 above is incorporated herein by reference.

 

As of July 20, 2023, after taking into account the issuance of the First Tranche Shares, the Company has 49,293,392 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding.

 

Item 8.01 Other Events.

 

Together with other cost saving measures that the Company expects to implement in the near-term, the Company expects the additional $202,500 in net proceeds from the sale of the First Tranche Shares to be sufficient to fund its operations through the end of July 2023, and the Company expects the anticipated $202,500 in net proceeds from the sale of the Second Tranche Shares to be sufficient to fund its operations through mid August 2023. The amounts of net proceeds in the foregoing sentence do not give effect to the payment of legal fees and other expenses in connection with the Offering. In the event that the Company is unable to secure financing by that time, it may be forced to further curtail or suspend its operations, sell the Company, or possibly even file for bankruptcy or liquidate assets and wind-up and dissolve the Company.

 

In connection with the preparation and review of its financial statements for the quarter ended June 30, 2023, the Company determined that such financial statements will likely include an impairment charge related to its intangible assets. The Company currently estimates that such impairment charge will be approximately $1.2 million in the aggregate, consisting of an impairment charge of approximately $630,000 for the Company’s underwriting application programming interface (“API”) and an impairment charge of approximately $578,000 for the Company’s longevity API. The Company does not expect the impairment charges to result in any cash expenditures. These amounts reflect the Company’s best estimates of the impairment charges at this time; however, such amounts continue to be evaluated and the Company can make no assurances that these estimates will not change. The Company notes that the impairment charge would have occurred irrespective of the Offering and would have been, and will be, reflected in its financial statements for the quarter ended June 30, 2023.

 

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

 

The information contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K and the exhibits attached hereto contain “forward-looking” statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. The words “intend,” “may,” “should,” “would,” “expect,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “predict,” “potential” or “continue” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology are intended to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. Forward-looking statements are statements that are not historical facts. Such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to risks and uncertainties, which could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements contained herein due to many factors. With respect to the matters addressed in this Current Report on Form 8-K, those factors include, but are not limited to: whether the Resale Registration Statement will be declared effective by the SEC promptly, if at all, the Company’s ability to timely obtain the net proceeds from the sale of the Second Tranche Shares as well as additional funding to continue its operations, the Company’s ability to implement cost savings measures and to realize the anticipated benefits and the estimates of the impairment charges that the Company may incur. While the Company believes its plans, intentions and expectations reflected in those forward-looking statements are reasonable, these plans, intentions or expectations may not be achieved. The Company’s actual results, performance or achievements could differ materially from those contemplated, expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. For information about the factors that could cause such differences, please refer to the Company’s filings with the SEC. Given these uncertainties, you should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. The Company assumes no obligation to update any forward-looking statement.

Section 5.01 Indemnification. In consideration of the Buyer’s execution and delivery of this Agreement and acquiring the Shares hereunder and in addition to all of the Company’s other obligations under this Agreement and the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company shall defend, protect, indemnify and hold harmless the Buyer and each holder of any Shares and all of their stockholders, partners, members, officers, directors, employees and direct or indirect investors and any of the foregoing Persons’ agents or other representatives (including, without limitation, those retained in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement) (collectively, the “Indemnitees”) from and against any and all actions, causes of action, suits, claims, losses, costs, penalties, fees, liabilities and damages, and expenses in connection therewith (irrespective of whether any such Indemnitee is a party to the action for which indemnification hereunder is sought), and including reasonable attorneys’ fees and disbursements (the “Indemnified Liabilities”), incurred by any Indemnitee as a result of, or arising out of, or relating to: (a) any misrepresentation or breach of any representation or warranty made by the Company in this Agreement or the Registration Rights Agreement, (b) any breach of any covenant, agreement or obligation of the Company contained in this Agreement or the Registration Rights Agreement or (c) any cause of action, suit or claim brought or made against such Indemnitee by a third party (including for these purposes a derivative action brought on behalf of the Company) and arising out of or resulting from (i) the execution, delivery, performance or enforcement of this Agreement or the Registration Rights Agreement or (ii) any transaction financed or to be financed in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, with the proceeds of the issuance and sale of the Shares to the Buyer pursuant to this Agreement; provided, however, that (x) the Company shall not be liable to any Indemnitee under subsection (c) of this Section 5.01 to the extent, and only to the extent, that a court of competent jurisdiction shall have determined by a final judgment (from which no further appeals are available) that such Indemnified Liabilities resulted directly and primarily from any acts or failures to act undertaken or omitted to be taken by the Buyer through its bad faith or willful misconduct, (y) the forgoing indemnity shall not apply to any Indemnified Liabilities to the extent, and only to the extent, that such Indemnified Liabilities resulted directly and primarily from a breach of any of the Buyer’s representations, warranties, covenants or agreements contained in this Agreement, and (z) the Company shall not be liable under this Section 5.01 for any settlement by an Indemnitee effected without the Company’s prior written consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. The Company shall reimburse any Indemnitee promptly upon demand (with accompanying presentation of documentary evidence) for all legal and other costs and expenses reasonably incurred by such Indemnitee in connection with: (i) any action, suit, claim or proceeding, whether at law or in equity, to enforce compliance by the Company with any provision of this Agreement or the Registration Rights Agreement or (ii) any other any action, suit, claim or proceeding, whether at law or in equity, with respect to which it is entitled to indemnification under this Section 5.01; provided that an Indemnitee shall promptly reimburse the Company for all such legal and other costs and expenses to the extent a court of competent jurisdiction shall have determined by a final judgment (from which no further appeals are available) that such Indemnitee was not entitled to such reimbursement. An Indemnitee’s right to indemnification or other remedies based upon the representations, warranties, covenants and agreements of the Company set forth in this Agreement or the Registration Rights Agreement shall not in any way be affected by any investigation or knowledge of such Indemnitee. Such representations, warranties, covenants and agreements shall not be affected or deemed waived by reason of the fact that an Indemnitee knew or should have known that any representation or warranty might be inaccurate or that the Company failed to comply with any agreement or covenant. Any investigation by such Indemnitee shall be for its own protection only and shall not affect or impair any right or remedy hereunder. To the extent that the foregoing undertaking by the Company may be unenforceable for any reason, the Company shall make the maximum contribution to the payment and satisfaction of each of the Indemnified Liabilities which is permissible under applicable law. Except as otherwise set forth herein, the mechanics and procedures with respect to the rights and obligations under this Section 5.01 shall be the same as those set forth in Section 5 of the Registration Rights Agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 5.01, the Company shall not be obligated to pay an Indemnitee any sums otherwise due under this Section 5.01 if the Company has already paid the Indemnitee such sums for the same Indemnified Liabilities under Section 5 of the Registration Rights Agreement.

Section 5.02 Legend Removal; Delivery Failure. The Company shall use its best efforts to cause its transfer agent to remove the legend set forth and referred to in Section 4.04(j) of this Agreement from the Shares and to issue a certificate without such legend to the holder of the Shares upon which it is stamped, or to issue to such holder by electronic delivery at the applicable balance account at DTC, unless otherwise required by state securities or “blue sky” laws, at such time as: (i) the resale of such Shares is registered under the Securities Act under an effective registration statement, (ii) the Buyer shall have delivered to the Company an opinion of counsel, in a form reasonably acceptable to the Company, to the effect that such Shares to be sold, assigned or transferred may be sold, assigned or transferred pursuant to an exemption from such registration requirements; or (iii) if such Shares are eligible to be sold under Rule 144, the Buyer provides the Company with reasonable assurance in writing that the Shares are being sold, assigned or transferred pursuant to Rule 144 (which shall not include an opinion of Buyer’s counsel). In furtherance of the foregoing, the Company agrees that, following the effective date of the initial Registration Statement to be filed by the Company with the Commission pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, or at such time as such legend is not required to be placed upon certificates representing the Shares as set forth in Section 4.04(h) or this Section 5.02, the Company shall, no later than two (2) Business Days following the delivery by the Buyer to the Company or its transfer agent of (i) a certificate representing Shares issued with a restrictive legend (such second (2nd) Trading Day, the “Legend Removal Date”) and (ii) customary representations and other documentation reasonably acceptable to the Company and its transfer agent in connection therewith, either: (A) issue and deliver (or cause to be issued and delivered) to the Buyer a certificate or DRS Statement representing such Shares that is free from all restrictive and other legends or (B) cause its transfer agent to credit the Buyer’s or its designee’s account at DTC through its Deposit/Withdrawal at Custodian (DWAC) system with a number of shares of Common Stock equal to the number of Shares represented by the certificate so delivered by the Buyer. If the Company fails on or prior to the Legend Removal Date (other than any such failure that is solely due to any action or inaction by the Holder) to either (i) issue and deliver (or cause to be issued and delivered) to the Buyer a certificate or DRS Statement representing the Shares that is free from all restrictive and other legends or (ii) cause its transfer agent to credit the balance account of the Buyer or its designee at DTC through its Deposit/Withdrawal at Custodian (DWAC) system with a number of shares of Common Stock equal to the number of the Shares represented by the certificate delivered by the Buyer pursuant hereto (a “Delivery Failure”), and if on or after the Legend Removal Date the Buyer purchases (in an open market transaction or otherwise) shares of Common Stock to deliver in satisfaction of a sale by the Buyer of shares of Common Stock that the Buyer anticipated receiving from the Company without any restrictive legend, then the Company shall, within two (2) Business Days after the Buyer’s request, pay cash to the Buyer in an amount equal to the Buyer’s total purchase price (including brokerage commissions, if any) for the shares of Common Stock so purchased, at which point the Company’s obligation to deliver a certificate or credit the Buyer’s or its designee’s account at DTC for such shares of Common Stock shall terminate and such shares shall be cancelled.

 

Section 5.03 Termination. In the event that the First Tranche Closing shall not have occurred within ten (10) days after the date of this Agreement, then the Buyer shall have the right to terminate its obligations under this Agreement at any time on or after the close of business on such date without liability of the Buyer to any other Party; provided, however, the right to terminate its obligations under this Agreement pursuant to this first sentence of Section 5.03 shall not be available to the Buyer if the failure of the First Tranche Closing to have occurred by such date is the result of the Buyer’s breach of this Agreement. In the event the Buyer is in breach in any material respect under any of the provisions of this Agreement or the Registration Rights Agreement, and, if such breach is capable of being cured, such breach is not cured within ten (10) Business Days after notice of such breach is delivered to the Buyer pursuant to Section 6.01 hereof, then the Company shall have the right to terminate its obligations to issue the Second Tranche Purchase Shares under this Agreement at any time thereafter and prior to the Second Tranche Closing without liability of the Company to any other Party. In the event the Initial Registration Statement is not filed by the applicable Filing Deadline (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement) therefor or declared effective by the Commission by the applicable Effective Date (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement) therefor, or the Company is otherwise in breach or default in any material respect under any of the other provisions of this Agreement or the Registration Rights Agreement, and, if such failure, breach or default is capable of being cured, such failure, breach or default is not cured within ten (10) Business Days after notice of such failure, breach or default is delivered to the Company pursuant to Section 6.01 hereof, then the Buyer shall have the right to terminate its obligations to purchase the Second Tranche Purchase Shares under this Agreement at any time thereafter and prior to the Second Tranche Closing without liability of the Buyer to any other Party; provided, however, the right to terminate its obligations under this Agreement pursuant to this second sentence of Section 5.03 shall not be available to the Buyer if the failure of the Registration Statement to be filed by the applicable Filing Deadline or declared effective by the applicable Effective Date therefor is the result of the Buyer’s breach of this Agreement or the Registration Rights Agreement. Nothing contained in this Section 5.03 shall be deemed to release any Party from any liability for any breach by such party of the terms and provisions of this Agreement or the Registration Rights Agreement or to impair the right of any Party to compel specific performance by any other Party of its obligations under this Agreement or the Registration Rights Agreement.

(c)In each case of any penalty due hereunder as a result of a Share Dilutive Issuance or otherwise, the Company, at its expense, will promptly (but in no event more than one (1) Business Day after a Share Dilutive Issuance or other event requiring adjustment or readjustment in the Shares) cause its Chief Financial Officer or other appropriate designee to compute such penalty in accordance with the terms hereof, and prepare and deliver to the Buyer in accordance with Section 6.01 hereof a certificate setting forth such penalty and showing in detail the facts upon which such penalty is based, including a statement of the price per share of the shares of Common Stock sold in the Dilutive Issuance and the cash payment to be received by Buyer.

Each Registration Statement filed hereunder shall be on Form S-1 (or Form S-3, if available to register for resale the Registrable Securities, or such other form available to register for resale the Registrable Securities) and shall contain substantially the “Plan of Distribution” attached hereto as Annex A. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, the Company shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to cause a Registration Statement filed under this Agreement to be declared effective under the Securities Act as promptly as possible after the filing thereof, but in any event no later than the applicable Effectiveness Deadline, and shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to keep such Registration Statement continuously effective under the Securities Act until the earlier of (i) six (6) months after the Initial Registration Statement has been declared effective by the Commission or (ii) the date that all Registrable Securities covered by such Registration Statement (A) have been sold, thereunder or pursuant to Rule 144, or (B) may be sold without volume or manner-of-sale restrictions pursuant to Rule 144 and without the requirement for the Company to be in compliance with the current public information requirement under Rule 144, as determined by the counsel to the Company pursuant to a written opinion letter to such effect, addressed and acceptable to the Transfer Agent and the affected Holders (the “Effectiveness Period”). The Company shall promptly notify the Holders via e-mail of the effectiveness of a Registration Statement. The Company shall file a final Prospectus with the Commission as required by Rule 424.

(b) Notwithstanding the registration obligations set forth in Section 2(a), if the Commission informs the Company that all of the Registrable Securities cannot, as a result of the application of Rule 415, be registered for resale as a secondary offering on a single registration statement, the Company agrees to promptly inform each of the Holders thereof and use its commercially reasonable efforts to file amendments to the Initial Registration Statement as required by the Commission, covering the maximum number of Registrable Securities permitted to be registered by the Commission, on Form S-1 or such other form available to register for resale the Registrable Securities as a secondary offering.

 

(c) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, if the Commission or any SEC Guidance sets forth a limitation on the number of Registrable Securities permitted to be registered on a particular Registration Statement as a secondary offering (and notwithstanding that the Company used commercially reasonable efforts to advocate with the Commission for the registration of all or a greater portion of Registrable Securities), unless otherwise directed in writing by a Holder as to its Registrable Securities, the number of Registrable Securities to be registered on such Registration Statement will be reduced first to reduce or eliminate any securities to be included by any Person other than a Holder. In the event of a cutback hereunder, the Company shall give a Holder at least two (2) Trading Days prior written notice along with the calculations as to such Holder’s allotment. In the event the Company amends the Initial Registration Statement in accordance with the foregoing, the Company will use its commercially reasonable efforts to file with the Commission, as promptly as allowed by Commission or SEC Guidance provided to the Company or to registrants of securities in general, one or more registration statements on Form S-1 or such other form available to register for resale those Registrable Securities that were not registered for resale on the Initial Registration Statement, as amended.

 

(d) Each Holder agrees to furnish to the Company a completed Selling Stockholder Questionnaire within two (2) Business Days following the date of this Agreement. Each Holder further agrees that it shall not be entitled to be named as a selling security holder in the Registration Statement or use the Prospectus for offers and resales of Registrable Securities at any time unless such Holder has returned to the Company a completed and signed Selling Stockholder Questionnaire. If a Holder of Registrable Securities returns a Selling Stockholder Questionnaire after the deadline specified in this Section 2(d), the Company shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to take such actions as are required to name such Holder as a selling security holder in the Registration Statement or any pre-effective or post-effective amendment thereto and to include (to the extent not theretofore included) in the Registration Statement the Registrable Securities identified in such late Selling Stockholder Questionnaire; provided that the Company shall not be required to file an additional Registration Statement solely for such shares. Each Holder acknowledges and agrees that the information in the Selling Stockholder Questionnaire will be used and relied upon by the Company in the preparation of the Registration Statement and hereby consents to the inclusion of such information in the Registration Statement.

3. Registration Procedures. In connection with the Company’s registration obligations hereunder, the Company shall:

 

(a) Not less than [one (1) Trading Day][two (2) Trading Days] prior to the filing of each Registration Statement, the Company shall: (i) furnish to each Holder copies of all such documents proposed to be filed, which documents will be subject to the reasonable review of such Holders, and (ii) use its commercially reasonable efforts to cause its officers and directors, counsel and independent registered public accountants to respond to such inquiries as shall be necessary, in the reasonable opinion of respective counsel to each Holder, to conduct a reasonable investigation within the meaning of the Securities Act. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company shall not be obligated to provide the Holders advanced copies of any proposed universal shelf registration statement registering securities in addition to those securities required to be registered hereunder.

 

(b) (i) Prepare and file with the Commission such amendments, including post-effective amendments, to a Registration Statement used in connection therewith as may be necessary to keep a Registration Statement continuously effective as to the applicable Registrable Securities for the Effectiveness Period and prepare and file with the Commission such additional Registration Statement(s) in order to register for resale under the Securities Act any and all of the Registrable Securities, (ii) cause the related Prospectus to be amended or supplemented, from time to time, by any required Prospectus supplement (subject to the terms of this Agreement), and, as so supplemented or amended, to be filed pursuant to Rule 424, (iii) respond as promptly as reasonably practicable to any comments received from the Commission with respect to a Registration Statement or any amendment thereto and provide as promptly as reasonably practicable to the Holders true, accurate and complete copies of all correspondence from and to the Commission related to and/or applicable to a Holder in the reasonable opinion of the Company relating to a Registration Statement (provided that, the Company shall excise its business judgment with regard to any information contained therein which would constitute material non-public information regarding the Company or any of its Subsidiaries), and (iv) comply in all material respects with the applicable provisions of the Securities Act and the Exchange Act with respect to the disposition of all Registrable Securities covered by a Registration Statement during the Effectiveness Period in accordance (subject to the terms of this Agreement) with the intended methods of disposition by the Holders thereof set forth in such Registration Statement as so amended or in such Prospectus as so supplemented.

 

(c) Notify the Holders of Registrable Securities intended to be sold (which notice shall, pursuant to clauses (iii) through (vi) hereof, be accompanied by an instruction to suspend the use of the Prospectus until the requisite changes have been made) as promptly as reasonably possible (and, in the case of (i)(A) below, not less than one (1) Trading Day prior to such filing) and (if requested by any such Person) confirm such notice in writing no later than one (1) Trading Day following the day (i)(A) when a Prospectus or any Prospectus supplement or post-effective amendment to a Registration Statement is proposed to be filed, (B) when the Commission notifies the Company whether there will be a “review” of such Registration Statement and whenever the Commission comments in writing on such Registration Statement, and (C) with respect to a Registration Statement or any post-effective amendment, when the same has become effective, (ii) of any request by the Commission or any other federal or state governmental authority for amendments or supplements to a Registration Statement or Prospectus or for additional information, (iii) of the issuance by the Commission or any other federal or state governmental authority of any stop order suspending the effectiveness of a Registration Statement covering any or all of the Registrable Securities or the initiation of any Proceedings for that purpose, (iv) of the receipt by the Company of any notification with respect to the suspension of the qualification or exemption from qualification of any of the Registrable Securities for sale in any jurisdiction, or the initiation or threatening of any Proceeding for such purpose, and (v) of the occurrence of any event or passage of time that makes the financial statements included in a Registration Statement stale or otherwise ineligible for inclusion therein or any statement made in a Registration Statement or Prospectus or any document incorporated or deemed to be incorporated therein by reference untrue in any material respect or that requires any material revisions to a Registration Statement, Prospectus or other documents so that, in the case of a Registration Statement or the Prospectus, as the case may be, 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, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading; provided, however, in no event shall any such notice contain any information which would constitute material, non-public information regarding the Company or any of its Subsidiaries.

 

5

 

 

(d) Use its commercially reasonable efforts to avoid the issuance of, or, if issued, obtain the withdrawal of (i) any order stopping or suspending the effectiveness of a Registration Statement, or (ii) any suspension of the qualification (or exemption from qualification) of any of the Registrable Securities for sale in any jurisdiction, at the earliest practicable moment.

 

(e) Subject to the terms of this Agreement, the Company hereby consents to the use of such Prospectus and each amendment or supplement thereto by each of the selling Holders in connection with the offering and sale of the Registrable Securities covered by such Prospectus and any amendment or supplement thereto, except after the giving of any notice pursuant to Section 3(c).

 

(f) Prior to any resale of Registrable Securities by a Holder, use its commercially reasonable efforts to register or qualify or cooperate with the selling Holders in connection with the registration or qualification (or exemption from the Registration or qualification) of such Registrable Securities for the resale by the Holder under the securities or Blue Sky laws of such jurisdictions within the United States as any Holder reasonably requests in writing, to keep each registration or qualification (or exemption therefrom) effective during the Effectiveness Period and to do any and all other acts or things reasonably necessary to enable the disposition in such jurisdictions of the Registrable Securities covered by each Registration Statement; provided, that, the Company shall not be required to qualify generally to do business in any jurisdiction where it is not then so qualified, subject the Company to any material tax in any such jurisdiction where it is not then so subject or file a general consent to service of process in any such jurisdiction.

 

(g) If requested by a Holder, cooperate with such Holder to facilitate the timely preparation and delivery of certificates or direct registration statements in book entry form representing Registrable Securities to be delivered to a transferee pursuant to a Registration Statement, which certificates shall be free, to the extent permitted by the Purchase Agreement (solely with respect to Holders a party thereto) and applicable securities laws, of all restrictive legends, and to enable such Registrable Securities to be in such denominations and registered in such names as any such Holder may reasonably request.

 

(h) Upon the occurrence of any event contemplated by Section 3(c), as promptly as reasonably practicable under the circumstances taking into account the Company’s good faith assessment of any adverse consequences to the Company and its stockholders of the premature disclosure of any such event, prepare a supplement or amendment, including a post-effective amendment to a Registration Statement or a supplement to any related Prospectus or any document incorporated or deemed to be incorporated therein by reference, and file any other required document so that, as thereafter delivered, neither a Registration Statement nor such Prospectus will contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state 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 at the time made. If the Company notifies the Holders in accordance with Section 3(c) above to suspend the use of any Prospectus until the requisite changes to such Prospectus have been made, then the Holders shall suspend use of such Prospectus. The Company will use its commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the use of the Prospectus may be resumed as promptly as is practicable. In addition, if (i) there is material non-public information regarding the Company which the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) determines not to be in the Company’s best interest to disclose and which the Company is not otherwise required to disclose, or (ii) there is a significant business opportunity (including, but not limited to, the acquisition or disposition of assets (other than in the ordinary course of business) or any merger, consolidation, tender offer or other similar transaction) available to the Company which the Board determines not to be in the Company’s best interest to disclose, then the Company may (x) postpone or suspend filing of a registration statement for a period not to exceed forty-five (45) consecutive days or (y) postpone or suspend effectiveness of a registration statement for a period not to exceed forty-five (45) consecutive days; provided, that the Company may not postpone or suspend effectiveness of a registration statement under this Section for more than ninety (90) days in the aggregate during any three hundred sixty (360) day period; provided, however, that no such postponement or suspension shall be permitted for consecutive twenty (20) day periods arising out of the same set of facts, circumstances or transactions.

 

6

 

 

(i) Comply in all material respects with all applicable rules and regulations of the Commission.

 

(j) The Company shall require each selling Holder to furnish to the Company a certified statement as to the number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by such Holder and, if required by the Commission, the natural persons thereof that have voting and dispositive control over the shares, pursuant to the Selling Stockholder Questionnaire.

All fees and expenses incident to the performance of or compliance with this Agreement by the Company shall be borne by the Company whether or not any Registrable Securities are sold pursuant to a Registration Statement.

In addition, the Company shall be responsible for all of its internal expenses incurred in connection with the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (including, without limitation, all salaries and expenses of its officers and employees performing legal or accounting duties), the expense of any annual audit and the fees and expenses incurred in connection with the listing of the Registrable Securities on any securities exchange as required hereunder. In no event shall the Company be responsible for any broker or similar commissions of any Holder or any legal fees, or other costs of the Holders.

 

5. Indemnification.

 

(a) Indemnification by the Company. The Company shall, notwithstanding any termination of this Agreement, indemnify and hold harmless each Holder, the officers, directors, members, partners, agents, brokers (including brokers who offer and sell Registrable Securities as principal as a result of a pledge or any failure to perform under a margin call of Common Stock), investment advisors and employees (and any other Persons with a functionally equivalent role of a Person holding such titles, notwithstanding a lack of such title or any other title) of each of them, each Person who controls any such Holder (within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act) and the officers, directors, members, stockholders, partners, agents and employees (and any other Persons with a functionally equivalent role of a Person holding such titles, notwithstanding a lack of such title or any other title) of each such controlling Person, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, from and against any and all losses, claims, damages, liabilities, costs (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees) and expenses (collectively, “Losses”), as incurred, arising out of or relating to (1) any untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in a Registration Statement, any Prospectus or any form of prospectus or in any amendment or supplement thereto or in any preliminary prospectus, or arising out of or relating to any omission or alleged omission of a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein (in the case of any Prospectus or supplement thereto, in light of the circumstances under which they were made) not misleading or (2) any violation or alleged violation by the Company of the Securities Act, the Exchange Act or any state securities law, or any rule or regulation thereunder, in connection with the performance of its obligations under this Agreement, except to the extent, but only to the extent, that (i) such untrue statements or omissions are based solely upon information regarding such Holder furnished in writing to the Company by such Holder expressly for use therein, or to the extent that such information relates to such Holder or such Holder’s proposed method of distribution of Registrable Securities and was reviewed and expressly approved in writing by such Holder expressly for use in a Registration Statement, such Prospectus or in any amendment or supplement thereto (it being understood that the Holder has approved Annex A hereto for this purpose) or (ii) in the case of an occurrence of an event of the type specified in Section 3(c)(iii)-(vi), the use by such Holder of an outdated, defective or otherwise unavailable Prospectus after the Company has notified such Holder in writing that the Prospectus is outdated, defective or otherwise unavailable for use by such Holder and prior to the receipt by such Holder of the Advice contemplated in Section 6(d). The Company shall notify the Holders promptly of the institution, threat or assertion of any Proceeding arising from or in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement of which the Company is aware. Such indemnity shall remain in full force and effect regardless of any investigation made by or on behalf of such indemnified person and shall survive the transfer of any Registrable Securities by any of the Holders in accordance with Section 6(h).

 

7

 

 

(b) Indemnification by Holders. Each Holder shall, severally and not jointly, indemnify and hold harmless the Company, its directors, officers, agents and employees, each Person who controls the Company (within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act and Section 20 of the Exchange Act), and the directors, officers, agents or employees of such controlling Persons, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, from and against all Losses, as incurred, to the extent arising out of or based solely upon: any untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in any Registration Statement, any Prospectus, or in any amendment or supplement thereto or in any preliminary prospectus, or arising out of or relating to any omission or alleged omission of a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein (in the case of any Prospectus or supplement thereto, in light of the circumstances under which they were made) not misleading (i) to the extent, but only to the extent, that such untrue statement or omission is contained in any information so furnished in writing by such Holder to the Company expressly for inclusion in such Registration Statement or such Prospectus or (ii) to the extent, but only to the extent, that such information relates to such Holder’s information provided in the Selling Stockholder Questionnaire or the proposed method of distribution of Registrable Securities and was reviewed and expressly approved in writing by such Holder expressly for use in a Registration Statement (it being understood that the Holder has approved Annex A hereto for this purpose), such Prospectus or in any amendment or supplement thereto. In no event shall the liability of a selling Holder be greater in amount than the dollar amount of the proceeds (net of all expenses paid by such Holder in connection with any claim relating to this Section 5 and the amount of any damages such Holder has otherwise been required to pay by reason of such untrue statement or omission) received by such Holder upon the sale of the Registrable Securities included in the Registration Statement giving rise to such indemnification obligation.

 

(c) Conduct of Indemnification Proceedings. If any Proceeding shall be brought or asserted against any Person entitled to indemnity hereunder (an “Indemnified Party”), such Indemnified Party shall promptly notify the Person from whom indemnity is sought (the “Indemnifying Party”) in writing, and the Indemnifying Party shall have the right to assume the defense thereof, including the employment of counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Party and the payment of all fees and expenses incurred in connection with defense thereof; provided, that, the failure of any Indemnified Party to give such notice shall not relieve the Indemnifying Party of its obligations or liabilities pursuant to this Agreement, except (and only) to the extent that it shall be finally determined by a court of competent jurisdiction (which determination is not subject to appeal or further review) that such failure shall have materially and adversely prejudiced the Indemnifying Party.

 

An Indemnified Party shall have the right to employ separate counsel in any such Proceeding and to participate in the defense thereof, but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be at the expense of such Indemnified Party or Parties unless: (1) the Indemnifying Party has agreed in writing to pay such fees and expenses, (2) the Indemnifying Party shall have failed promptly to assume the defense of such Proceeding and to employ counsel reasonably satisfactory to such Indemnified Party in any such Proceeding, or (3) the named parties to any such Proceeding (including any impleaded parties) include both such Indemnified Party and the Indemnifying Party, and counsel to the Indemnified Party shall reasonably believe that a material conflict of interest is likely to exist if the same counsel were to represent such Indemnified Party and the Indemnifying Party (in which case, if such Indemnified Party notifies the Indemnifying Party in writing that it elects to employ separate counsel at the expense of the Indemnifying Party, the Indemnifying Party shall not have the right to assume the defense thereof and the reasonable fees and expenses of no more than one separate counsel shall be at the expense of the Indemnifying Party). The Indemnifying Party shall not be liable for any settlement of any such Proceeding effected without its written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. No Indemnifying Party shall, without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party, effect any settlement of any pending Proceeding in respect of which any Indemnified Party is a party, unless such settlement includes an unconditional release of such Indemnified Party from all liability on claims that are the subject matter of such Proceeding.

 

8

 

 

Subject to the terms of this Agreement, all reasonable fees and expenses of the Indemnified Party (including reasonable fees and expenses to the extent incurred in connection with investigating or preparing to defend such Proceeding in a manner not inconsistent with this Section) shall be paid to the Indemnified Party, as incurred, within ten Trading Days of written notice thereof to the Indemnifying Party; provided, that, the Indemnified Party shall promptly reimburse the Indemnifying Party for that portion of such fees and expenses applicable to such actions for which such Indemnified Party is finally determined by a court of competent jurisdiction (which determination is not subject to appeal or further review) not to be entitled to indemnification hereunder.

 

(d) Contribution. If the indemnification under Section 5(a) or 5(b) is unavailable to an Indemnified Party or insufficient to hold an Indemnified Party harmless for any Losses, then each Indemnifying Party shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by such Indemnified Party, in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the Indemnifying Party and Indemnified Party 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 such Indemnifying Party and Indemnified Party shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether any action in question, including any untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or omission or alleged omission of a material fact, has been taken or made by, or relates to information supplied by, such Indemnifying Party or Indemnified Party, and the parties’ relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such action, statement or omission. The amount paid or payable by a party as a result of any Losses shall be deemed to include, subject to the limitations set forth in this Agreement, any reasonable attorneys’ or other fees or expenses incurred by such party in connection with any Proceeding to the extent such party would have been indemnified for such fees or expenses if the indemnification provided for in this Section was available to such party in accordance with its terms.

 

The parties hereto agree that it would not be just and equitable if contribution pursuant to this Section 5(d) were determined by pro rata allocation or by any other method of allocation that does not take into account the equitable considerations referred to in the immediately preceding paragraph. In no event shall the contribution obligation of a Holder of Registrable Securities be greater in amount than the dollar amount of the proceeds (net of all expenses paid by such Holder in connection with any claim relating to this Section 5 and the amount of any damages such Holder has otherwise been required to pay by reason of such untrue or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission) received by it upon the sale of the Registrable Securities giving rise to such contribution obligation.

 

The indemnity and contribution agreements contained in this Section are in addition to any liability that the Indemnifying Parties may have to the Indemnified Parties.

 

6. Miscellaneous.

 

(a) Remedies. In the event of a breach by the Company or by a Holder of any of their respective obligations under this Agreement, each Holder or the Company, as the case may be, in addition to being entitled to exercise all rights granted by law and under this Agreement, including recovery of damages, shall be entitled to specific performance of its rights under this Agreement. Each of the Company and each Holder agrees that monetary damages would not provide adequate compensation for any losses incurred by reason of a breach by it of any of the provisions of this Agreement and hereby further agrees that, in the event of any action for specific performance in respect of such breach, it shall not assert or shall waive the defense that a remedy at law would be adequate.

(b) No Piggyback on Registrations; Prohibition on Filing Other Registration Statements. Except as contemplated by Section 6(e) herein, and except as set forth in Schedule I attached hereto, neither the Company nor any of its security holders (other than the Holders in such capacity pursuant hereto) may include securities of the Company in any Registration Statements other than the Registrable Securities. Except in connection with the items described in Schedule I attached hereto, the Company shall not file any other registration statements until a Registration Statement has been filed with the Commission covering all of the Registrable Securities, provided that this Section 6(b), (i) shall not prohibit the Company from filing amendments to registration statements filed prior to the date of this Agreement and (ii) shall not prohibit the Company from filing a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 for a primary offering by the Company, provided that the Company makes no offering of securities pursuant to such shelf registration statement prior to the effective date of the Registration Statement required hereunder that includes all of the Registrable Securities; provided, however, that upon the filing of a Registration Statement covering all of the Registrable Securities, the Company shall be permitted to file any other registration statements in connection with a primary offering regardless of whether a Registration Statement covering all of the Registrable Securities has been declared effective by the Commission; provided, further, that once all Registrable Securities are registered pursuant to a Registration Statement that is declared effective by the Commission, the Company shall be permitted to file any other registration statements.

 

(c) Compliance. Each Holder covenants and agrees that it will comply with the prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act as applicable to it (unless an exemption therefrom is available) in connection with sales of Registrable Securities pursuant to a Registration Statement.

 

(d) Discontinued Disposition. By its acquisition of Registrable Securities, each Holder agrees that, upon receipt of a notice from the Company of the occurrence of any event of the kind described in Section 3(c), such Holder will forthwith discontinue disposition of such Registrable Securities under a Registration Statement until it is advised in writing (the “Advice”) by the Company that the use of the applicable Prospectus (as it may have been supplemented or amended) may be resumed. The Company will use its commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the use of the Prospectus may be resumed as promptly as is practicable.

 

(e) Piggy-Back Registrations. If, at any time during the Effectiveness Period, there is not an effective Registration Statement covering all of the Registrable Securities and the Company shall determine to prepare and file with the Commission a registration statement relating to an offering for its own account or the account of others under the Securities Act of any of its equity securities, other than on Form S-4 or Form S-8 (each as promulgated under the Securities Act) or their then equivalents relating to equity securities to be issued solely in connection with any acquisition of any entity or business or equity securities issuable in connection with the Company’s stock option or other employee benefit plans, then the Company shall deliver to each Holder a written notice of such determination and, if within ten (10) days after the date of the delivery of such notice, any such Holder shall so request in writing, the Company shall include in such registration statement all or any part of such Registrable Securities such Holder requests to be registered; provided, however, that the Company shall not be required to register any Registrable Securities pursuant to this Section 6(e) that are eligible for resale pursuant to Rule 144 (without volume restrictions or current public information requirements) promulgated by the Commission pursuant to the Securities Act or that are the subject of a then effective Registration Statement. In connection with any offering involving an underwriting of shares of the Company’s capital stock, the Company shall not be required to include any of the Registrable Securities in such underwriting unless the Holder accepts the terms of the underwriting as agreed upon between the Company and its underwriters, and then only in such quantity as the underwriters in their sole discretion determine will not jeopardize the success of the offering by the Company. If the total number of securities, requested by stockholders to be included in such offering exceeds the number of securities to be sold (other than by the Company) that the underwriters in their reasonable discretion determine is compatible with the success of the offering, then the Company shall be required to include in the offering only that number of such securities, including Registrable Securities, which the underwriters and the Company in their sole discretion determine will not jeopardize the success of the offering. If the underwriters determine that less than all of the Registrable Securities requested to be registered can be included in such offering, then the Registrable Securities that are included in such offering shall be allocated among the Holders of Registrable Securities in proportion (as nearly as practicable to) the number of Registrable Securities owned by each Holder requesting registration.

 

10

 

 

(f) Amendments and Waivers. The provisions of this Agreement, including the provisions of this sentence, may not be amended, modified, or supplemented, and waivers or consents to departures from the provisions hereof may not be given, unless the same shall be in writing and signed by the Company and the Holders of at least a majority of the then outstanding Registrable Securities. If a Registration Statement does not register all the Registrable Securities pursuant to a waiver or amendment done in compliance with the previous sentence, then the number of Registrable Securities to be registered for each Holder shall be reduced pro rata among all Holders and each Holder shall have the right to designate which of its Registrable Securities shall be omitted from such Registration Statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a waiver or consent to depart from the provisions hereof with respect to a matter that relates exclusively to the rights of a Holder or some Holders and that does not directly or indirectly affect the rights of other Holders may be given only by such Holder or Holders of all the Registrable Securities to which such waiver or consent relates. No consideration shall be offered or paid to any Person to amend or consent to a waiver or modification of any provision of this Agreement unless the same consideration also is offered to all the parties to this Agreement.

 

(g) Notices. All notices or other communications or deliveries required or permitted to be provided hereunder shall be delivered as set forth in the Purchase Agreement.

 

(h) Successors and Assigns. This Agreement shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the successors and permitted assigns of each of the parties and shall inure to the benefit of each Holder. The Company may not assign (except by merger) its rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of all of the Holders of the then outstanding Registrable Securities. Each Holder may assign their respective rights hereunder to any Person to whom such Holder assigns or transfers any Registrable Securities, provided that such transferee agrees in writing to be bound, with respect to the transferred Registrable Securities, by the provisions of this Agreement and any other Transaction Document that applies to the Holders.

 

(i) No Inconsistent Agreements. Neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries has entered, as of the date hereof, nor shall the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, on or after the date of this Agreement, enter into any agreement with respect to its securities, that would have the effect of impairing the rights granted to the Holders in this Agreement or otherwise conflicts in any material respect with the provisions hereof. Neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries has previously entered into any agreement granting any registration rights with respect to any of its securities to any Person that have not been satisfied in full, except in connection with the items described in Schedule I attached hereto.

 

11

 

 

(j) Execution and Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in two or more counterparts, all of which when taken together shall be considered one and the same agreement and shall become effective when counterparts have been signed by each party and delivered to the other party, it being understood that both parties need not sign the same counterpart. In the event that any signature is delivered by facsimile transmission or by e-mail delivery of a “.pdf” format data file, such signature shall create a valid and binding obligation of the party executing (or on whose behalf such signature is executed) with the same force and effect as if such facsimile or “.pdf” signature page was an original thereof.

 

(k) Governing Law. All questions concerning the construction, validity, enforcement and interpretation of this Agreement shall be determined in accordance with the provisions of the Purchase Agreement.

 

(l) Cumulative Remedies. The remedies provided herein are cumulative and not exclusive of any other remedies provided by law.

 

(m) Severability. If any term, provision, covenant or restriction of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, void or unenforceable, the remainder of the terms, provisions, covenants and restrictions set forth herein shall remain in full force and effect and shall in no way be affected, impaired or invalidated, and the parties hereto shall use their commercially reasonable efforts to find and employ an alternative means to achieve the same or substantially the same result as that contemplated by such term, provision, covenant or restriction. It is hereby stipulated and declared to be the intention of the parties that they would have executed the remaining terms, provisions, covenants, and restrictions without including any of such that may be hereafter declared invalid, illegal, void or unenforceable.

 

(n) Headings. The headings in this Agreement are for convenience only, do not constitute a part of this Agreement and shall not be deemed to limit or affect any of the provisions hereof.

 

(o) Independent Nature of Holders’ Obligations and Rights. The obligations of each Holder hereunder are several and not joint with the obligations of any other Holder hereunder, and no Holder shall be responsible in any way for the performance of the obligations of any other Holder hereunder. Nothing contained herein or in any other agreement or document delivered at any closing, and no action taken by any Holder pursuant hereto or thereto, shall be deemed to constitute the Holders as a partnership, an association, a joint venture or any other kind of group or entity, or create a presumption that the Holders are in any way acting in concert or as a group or entity with respect to such obligations or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or any other matters. Each Holder shall be entitled to protect and enforce its rights, including without limitation the rights arising out of this Agreement, and it shall not be necessary for any other Holder to be joined as an additional party in any proceeding for such purpose. It is expressly understood and agreed that each provision contained in this Agreement is between the Company and a Holder, solely, and not between the Company and the Holders collectively and not between and among Holders.

Annex A

 

Plan of Distribution

 

Each Selling Stockholder (the “Selling Stockholders”) of the securities and any of their pledgees, assignees and successors-in-interest may, from time to time, sell any or all of their securities covered hereby on the Principal Market or any other stock exchange, market or trading facility on which the securities are traded or in private transactions. These sales may be at fixed or negotiated prices. A Selling Stockholder may use any one or more of the following methods when selling securities:

 

ordinary brokerage transactions and transactions in which the broker-dealer solicits purchasers;

 

block trades in which the broker-dealer will attempt to sell the securities as agent but may position and resell a portion of the block as principal to facilitate the transaction;

 

purchases by a broker-dealer as principal and resale by the broker-dealer for its account;

 

an exchange distribution in accordance with the rules of the applicable exchange;

 

privately negotiated transactions;

 

settlement of short sales;

 

in transactions through broker-dealers that agree with the Selling Stockholders to sell a specified number of such securities at a stipulated price per security;

 

through the writing or settlement of options or other hedging transactions, whether through an options exchange or otherwise;

 

a combination of any such methods of sale; or

 

any other method permitted pursuant to applicable law.

 

The Selling Stockholders may also sell securities under Rule 144 or any other exemption from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), if available, rather than under this prospectus.

 

Broker-dealers engaged by the Selling Stockholders may arrange for other brokers-dealers to participate in sales. Broker-dealers may receive commissions or discounts from the Selling Stockholders (or, if any broker-dealer acts as agent for the purchaser of securities, from the purchaser) in amounts to be negotiated, but, except as set forth in a supplement to this Prospectus, in the case of an agency transaction not in excess of a customary brokerage commission in compliance with FINRA Rule 2440; and in the case of a principal transaction a markup or markdown in compliance with FINRA IM-2440.

 

16

 

 

In connection with the sale of the securities or interests therein, the Selling Stockholders may enter into hedging transactions with broker-dealers or other financial institutions, which may in turn engage in short sales of the securities in the course of hedging the positions they assume. The Selling Stockholders may also sell securities short and deliver these securities to close out their short positions, or loan or pledge the securities to broker-dealers that in turn may sell these securities. The Selling Stockholders may also enter into option or other transactions with broker-dealers or other financial institutions or create one or more derivative securities which require the delivery to such broker-dealer or other financial institution of securities offered by this prospectus, which securities such broker-dealer or other financial institution may resell pursuant to this prospectus (as supplemented or amended to reflect such transaction).

 

The Selling Stockholders and any broker-dealers or agents that are involved in selling the securities may be deemed to be “underwriters” within the meaning of the Securities Act in connection with such sales. In such event, any commissions received by such broker-dealers or agents and any profit on the resale of the securities purchased by them may be deemed to be underwriting commissions or discounts under the Securities Act. Each Selling Stockholder has informed the Company that it does not have any written or oral agreement or understanding, directly or indirectly, with any person to distribute the securities.

 

The Company is required to pay certain fees and expenses incurred by the Company incident to the registration of the securities. The Company has agreed to indemnify the Selling Stockholders against certain losses, claims, damages, and liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act.

 

We agreed to keep this prospectus effective until the earlier of (i) the date on which the securities may be resold by the Selling Stockholders without registration and without regard to any volume or manner-of-sale limitations by reason of Rule 144, without the requirement for the Company to be in compliance with the current public information under Rule 144 under the Securities Act or any other rule of similar effect or (ii) all of the securities have been sold pursuant to this prospectus or Rule 144 under the Securities Act or any other rule of similar effect. The resale securities will be sold only through registered or licensed brokers or dealers if required under applicable state securities laws. In addition, in certain states, the resale securities covered hereby may not be sold unless they have been registered or qualified for sale in the applicable state or an exemption from the registration or qualification requirement is available and is complied with.

 

Under applicable rules and regulations under the Exchange Act, any person engaged in the distribution of the resale securities may not simultaneously engage in market making activities with respect to the common stock for the applicable restricted period, as defined in Regulation M, prior to the commencement of the distribution. In addition, the Selling Stockholders will be subject to applicable provisions of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations thereunder, including Regulation M, which may limit the timing of purchases and sales of the common stock by the Selling Stockholders or any other person. We will make copies of this prospectus available to the Selling Stockholders and have informed them of the need to deliver a copy of this prospectus to each purchaser at or prior to the time of the sale (including by compliance with Rule 172 under the Securities Act).

FOXO Technologies INC.

 

Selling Stockholder Notice and Questionnaire

 

The undersigned beneficial owner of Class A Common Stock (the “Registrable Securities”) of FOXO Technologies Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), understands that the Company has filed or intends to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) a registration statement (the “Registration Statement”) for the registration and resale under Rule 415 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), of the Registrable Securities, in accordance with the terms of the Registration Rights Agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) to which this document is annexed.
