The Company shall not declare, pay or set aside any dividends on shares of any other class or series of shares of the Company (other than dividends on Ordinary Shares payable in Ordinary Shares by way of a bonus share issuance or otherwise) unless (in addition to the obtaining of any consents required elsewhere in this Memorandum and Articles) the holders of the Series A Preferred Shares then outstanding shall simultaneously receive with the shareholders of Ordinary Shares, a dividend on each outstanding Series A Preferred Shares in an amount at least equal to (i) in the case of a dividend on Ordinary Shares or any class or series that is convertible into Ordinary Shares, that dividend per shares of Series A Preferred Share as would equal the product of (A) the dividend payable on each share of such class or series determined, if applicable, as if all shares of such class or series had been converted into Ordinary Shares and (B) the number of Ordinary Shares issuable upon conversion of a Series A Preferred Share, in each case calculated on the record date for determination of shareholders entitled to receive such dividend or (ii) in the case of a dividend on any class or series that is not convertible into Ordinary Shares, at a rate per share of Series A Preferred Share determined by (A) dividing the amount of the dividend payable on each share of such class or series of shares by the original issuance price of such class or series of shares (subject to appropriate adjustment in the event of any share dividend, share split, division, combination or other similar share reorganization with respect to such class or series) and (B) multiplying such fraction by an amount equal to the applicable Original Issue Price (as defined below); provided; that, if the Company declares, pays or sets aside, on the same date, a dividend on shares of more than one class or series of shares of the Company, the dividend payable to the shareholders of Series A Preferred Shares pursuant to this Section 3.3 shall be calculated based upon the dividend on the class or series of shares that would result in the highest Series A2 Preferred Shares dividend.

 

The “Series A1-A Original Issue Price” shall mean US$0.47 per share, subject to appropriate adjustment in the event of any share dividend, share split, division, combination or other similar share reorganization with respect to the Series A1-A Preferred Shares. The “Series A2 Original Issue Price” shall mean US$0.47 per share, subject to appropriate adjustment in the event of any share dividend, share split, division, combination or other similar recapitalization with respect to the Series A2 Preferred Shares.

3.4.2. Deemed Liquidation Events

 

Each of the following events shall be considered a “Deemed Liquidation Event” for the purposes of this Section 3 of the Schedule:

 

  (a) a merger or consolidation in which:

 

  (i) the Company is a constituent party; or
  (ii) a subsidiary of the Company is a constituent party and the Company issues shares pursuant to such merger or consolidation,

 

except any such merger or consolidation involving the Company or a subsidiary in which the shares of the Company outstanding immediately prior to such merger or consolidation continue to represent, or are converted into or exchanged for shares that represent, immediately following such merger or consolidation, at least a majority, by voting power, of the shares of (1) the surviving or resulting company; or (2) if the surviving or resulting company is a wholly owned subsidiary of another company immediately following such merger or consolidation, the parent company of such surviving or resulting company; or

 

  (b) the sale, lease, transfer, exclusive license or other disposition, in a single transaction or series of related transactions, by the Company or any subsidiary of the Company of all or substantially all the business or assets of the Company and its subsidiaries taken as a whole, or (2) the sale or disposition (whether by merger, consolidation or otherwise, and whether in a single transaction or a series of related transactions) of one or more subsidiaries of the Company if substantially all of the assets of the Company and its subsidiaries taken as a whole are held by such subsidiary or subsidiaries, except where such sale, lease, transfer, exclusive license or other disposition is to a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.

 

14

 

 

3.4.3. Effecting a Deemed Liquidation Event

 

The Company shall not have the power to effect a Deemed Liquidation Event unless the agreement or plan of merger or consolidation for such transaction (the “Merger Agreement”) provides that the consideration payable to the shareholders of the Company in such Deemed Liquidation Event shall be paid to the shareholders of the Company in accordance with this Section 3.4 of the Schedule.

 

3.4.4. Amount Deemed Paid of Distributed

 

The amount deemed paid or distributed to the shareholders of the Company upon any such merger, consolidation, sale, transfer, exclusive license, other disposition or redemption shall be the cash or the value of the property, rights or securities to be paid or distributed to such holders pursuant to such Deemed Liquidation Event. The value of such property, rights or securities shall be determined in good faith by the directors of the Company.

 

3.4.5.Allocation of Escrow and Contingent Consideration

 

In the event of a Deemed Liquidation Event pursuant to this Section 3.4, if any portion of the consideration payable to the shareholders of the Company is payable only upon satisfaction of contingencies (the “Additional Consideration”), the Merger Agreement shall provide that (a) the portion of such consideration that is not Additional Consideration (such portion, the “Initial Consideration”) shall be allocated among the shareholders of the Company as if the Initial Consideration were the only consideration payable in connection with such Deemed Liquidation Event; and (b) any Additional Consideration which becomes payable to the shareholders of the Company upon satisfaction of such contingencies shall be allocated among the shareholders of the Company in accordance with the subsection on Distribution of Remaining Assets, in each case, after taking into account the previous payment of the Initial Consideration as part of the same transaction. For the purposes of this subsection, consideration placed into escrow or retained as a holdback to be available for satisfaction of indemnification or similar obligations in connection with such Deemed Liquidation Event shall be deemed to be Additional Consideration.

 

3.5. Conversion Rights

 

The holders of the Series A Preferred Shares shall have conversion rights as follows (the “Conversion Rights”):

 

15

 

 

3.5.1. Right to Convert

 

  (a) Conversion Ratio

 

Subject to the provisions set out in the Section 3.5.9, each Series A Preferred Share shall be convertible, at the option of the shareholder thereof, at any time and from time to time, and without the payment of additional consideration by the shareholder thereof, into such number of fully paid and non-assessable Ordinary Shares as is determined by dividing the applicable Reference Price (as defined below) by the applicable Conversion Price (as defined below) in effect at the time of conversion. The “Series A4 Conversion Price” shall initially be equal to US$1.18. The “Series A2 Conversion Price” shall initially be equal to US$1.42. The “Series A1-A Conversion Price” shall initially be equal to US$0.95. The “Series Seed Conversion Price” shall initially be equal to US$16.3672 (the Series A4 Conversion Price, Series A2 Conversion Price and Series A1-A Conversion Price shall collectively be referred to herein as the “Series A Conversion Price” and together with the Series Seed Conversion Price, the “Conversion Price”). Such initial Conversion Price (as applicable), and the rate at which Series A Preferred Shares may be converted into Ordinary Shares, shall be subject to adjustment as provided below. The “Series A4 Reference Price” shall be equal to US$1.77. The “Series A2 Reference Price” shall be equal to US$1.42. The “Series A1-A Reference Price” shall be equal to US$0.95. The “Series Seed Reference Price” shall be equal to US$16.3672 the Series A4 Reference Price, Series A2 Reference Price and Series A1-A Reference Price shall collectively be referred to herein as the “Series A Reference Price” and together with the Series Seed Reference Price, the “Reference Price”).

 

  (b) Termination of Conversion Rights

 

In the event of a liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company or a Deemed Liquidation Event, the Conversion Rights shall terminate at the close of business on the last full day preceding the date fixed for the payment of any such amounts distributable on such event to the shareholders of Series A Preferred Shares.

 

3.5.2. Fractional Shares

 

No fractional Ordinary Shares shall be issued upon conversion of the Series A Preferred Shares. In lieu of any fractional shares to which the shareholder would otherwise be entitled, the Company shall pay cash equal to such fraction multiplied by the fair market value of an Ordinary Share as determined in good faith by the directors of the Company. Whether or not fractional shares would be issuable upon such conversion shall be determined on the basis of the total number of Series A Preferred Shares the shareholder is at the time converting into Ordinary Shares and the aggregate number of Ordinary Shares issuable upon such conversion.

 

16

 

 

3.5.3. Mechanics of Conversion

 

  (a) Notice of Conversion

 

In order for a shareholder of Series A Preferred Shares to voluntarily convert Series A Preferred Shares into Ordinary Shares, such shareholder shall (a) provide written notice to the Company’s transfer agent at the office of the transfer agent for the Preferred Shares (or at the principal office of the Company if the Company serves as its own transfer agent) that such shareholder elects to convert all or any number of such shareholder’s of Series A Preferred Shares and, if applicable, any event on which such conversion is contingent and (b), if such shareholder’s shares are certificated, surrender the certificate or certificates for such Series A Preferred Shares (or, if such registered shareholder alleges that such certificate has been lost, stolen or destroyed, a lost certificate 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), at the office of the transfer agent for the Preferred Shares (or at the principal office of the Company if the Company serves as its own transfer agent). Such notice shall state such shareholder’s name or the names of the nominees in which such shareholder wishes the Ordinary Shares to be issued. If required by the Company, any certificates surrendered for conversion shall be endorsed or accompanied by a written instrument or instruments of transfer, in form satisfactory to the Company, duly executed by the registered shareholder or his, her or its attorney duly authorized in writing. The close of business on the date of receipt by the transfer agent (or by the Company if the Company serves as its own transfer agent) of such notice and, if applicable, certificates (or lost certificate affidavit and agreement) shall be the time of conversion (the “Conversion Time”), and the Ordinary Shares issuable upon conversion of the specified shares shall be deemed to be outstanding of record as of such date. The Company shall, as soon as practicable after the Conversion Time (i) issue and deliver to such shareholder of Preferred Shares, or to his, her or its nominees, a certificate or certificates for the number of full Ordinary Shares issuable upon such conversion in accordance with the provisions hereof and a certificate for the number (if any) of the Series A Preferred Shares represented by the surrendered certificate that were not converted into Ordinary Shares, and (ii) pay in cash such amount as provided in Section 3.5.2 above (Fractional Shares) in lieu of any fraction of a Ordinary Share otherwise issuable upon such conversion.

 

  (b) Reservation of Shares

 

The Company shall at all times when the Series A Preferred Shares shall be outstanding, reserve and keep available out of its authorized but unissued shares, for the purpose of effecting the conversion of the Series A Preferred Shares, such number of its duly authorized Ordinary Shares as shall from time to time be sufficient to effect the conversion of all outstanding Series A Preferred Shares; and if at any time the number of authorized but unissued Ordinary Shares shall not be sufficient to effect the conversion of all then outstanding Series A Preferred Shares, the Company shall take such corporate action as may be necessary to increase its authorized but unissued Ordinary Shares to such number of shares as shall be sufficient for such purposes, including, without limitation, engaging in best efforts to obtain the requisite shareholder approval of any necessary amendment to this Memorandum and Articles of Association. Before taking any action which would cause an adjustment reducing the applicable Conversion Price below the then par value of the Ordinary Shares issuable upon conversion of the Series A Preferred Shares, the Company will take any corporate action which may, in the opinion of its directors, be necessary in order that the Company may validly and legally issue fully paid and non-assessable Ordinary Shares at such adjusted Conversion Price.

 

17

 

 

  (c) Effect of Conversion

 

All Series A Preferred Shares which shall have been surrendered for conversion as herein provided shall no longer be deemed to be outstanding and all rights with respect to such shares shall immediately cease and terminate at the Conversion Time, except only the right of the shareholders thereof to receive Ordinary Shares in exchange therefor and to receive payment in lieu of any fraction of a share otherwise issuable upon such conversion as provided in Section 3.5.2 above (Fractional Shares). Any Series A Preferred Shares so converted shall be retired and cancelled and may not be reissued as shares of such series, and the Company may thereafter take such appropriate action (without the need for shareholder action) as may be necessary to reduce the authorized number of Series A Preferred Shares accordingly.

 

  (d) No Further Adjustment

 

Upon any such conversion, no adjustment to the applicable Conversion Price shall be made for any declared but unpaid dividends on the Series A Preferred Shares surrendered for conversion or on the Ordinary Shares delivered upon conversion

 

3.5.4. Adjustments to Series A Conversion Price for Diluting Issues

 

For the purpose of this Section 3.5, the following definitions shall apply:

No adjustment in the applicable Series A Conversion Price shall be made as the result of the issuance or deemed issuance of Additional Shares of Ordinary Shares if the Company receives written notice from the Requisite Holders agreeing that no such adjustment shall be made as the result of the issuance or deemed issuance of such Additional Shares of Ordinary Shares

 

3.5.6. Deemed Issue of Additional Ordinary Shares

 

  (a) If the Company at any time or from time to time after the Series A Original Issue Date shall issue any Options or Convertible Securities (excluding Options or Convertible Securities which are themselves Exempted Securities) or shall fix a record date for the determination of shareholders of any class of securities entitled to receive any such Options or Convertible Securities, then the maximum number of Ordinary Shares (as set forth in the instrument relating thereto, assuming the satisfaction of any conditions to exercisability, convertibility or exchangeability but without regard to any provision contained therein for a subsequent adjustment of such number) issuable upon the exercise of such Options or, in the case of Convertible Securities and Options therefor, the conversion or exchange of such Convertible Securities, shall be deemed to be Additional Shares of Ordinary Shares issued as of the time of such issue or, in case such a record date shall have been fixed, as of the close of business on such record date.

 

19

 

 

  (b) If the terms of any Option or Convertible Security, the issuance of which resulted in an adjustment to the applicable Series A Conversion Price pursuant to the terms of Section 3.5.7 below (Adjustment of Applicable Series A Conversion Price Upon Issuance of Additional Shares of Ordinary Shares), are revised as a result of an amendment to such terms or any other adjustment pursuant to the provisions of such Option or Convertible Security (but excluding automatic adjustments to such terms pursuant to anti-dilution or similar provisions of such Option or Convertible Security) to provide for either (1) any increase or decrease in the number of Ordinary Shares issuable upon the exercise, conversion and/or exchange of any such Option or Convertible Security or (2) any increase or decrease in the consideration payable to the Company upon such exercise, conversion and/or exchange, then, effective upon such increase or decrease becoming effective, the applicable Series A Conversion Price computed upon the original issue of such Option or Convertible Security (or upon the occurrence of a record date with respect thereto) shall be readjusted to such applicable Series A Conversion Price as would have obtained had such revised terms been in effect upon the original date of issuance of such Option or Convertible Security. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no readjustment pursuant to this clause (b) shall have the effect of increasing the applicable Series A Conversion Price to an amount which exceeds the lower of (i) the applicable Series A Conversion Price in effect immediately prior to the original adjustment made as a result of the issuance of such Option or Convertible Security, or (ii) the applicable Series A Conversion Price that would have resulted from any issuances of Additional Shares of Ordinary Shares (other than deemed issuances of Additional Shares of Ordinary Shares as a result of the issuance of such Option or Convertible Security) between the original adjustment date and such readjustment date.
     
  (c) If the terms of any Option or Convertible Security (excluding Options or Convertible Securities which are themselves Exempted Securities), the issuance of which did not result in an adjustment to the applicable Series A Conversion Price pursuant to the terms of the Section 3.5.7 below (Adjustment of Applicable Series A Conversion Price Upon Issuance of Additional Shares of Ordinary Shares) (either because the consideration per share (determined pursuant to Section 3.5.8 below on Determination of Consideration) of the Additional Shares of Ordinary Shares subject thereto was equal to or greater than the applicable Series A Conversion Price then in effect, or because such Option or Convertible Security was issued before the Series A Original Issue Date), are revised after the Series A Original Issue Date as a result of an amendment to such terms or any other adjustment pursuant to the provisions of such Option or Convertible Security (but excluding automatic adjustments to such terms pursuant to anti-dilution or similar provisions of such Option or Convertible Security) to provide for either (1) any increase in the number of Ordinary Shares issuable upon the exercise, conversion or exchange of any such Option or Convertible Security or (2) any decrease in the consideration payable to the Company upon such exercise, conversion or exchange, then such Option or Convertible Security, as so amended or adjusted, and the Additional Shares of Ordinary Shares subject thereto (determined in the manner provided in subsection (a) above shall be deemed to have been issued effective upon such increase or decrease becoming effective.

 

20

 

 

  (d) Upon the expiration or termination of any unexercised Option or unconverted or unexchanged Convertible Security (or portion thereof) which resulted (either upon its original issuance or upon a revision of its terms) in an adjustment to the applicable Series A Conversion Price pursuant to the terms of Section 3.5.7 below (Adjustment of Applicable Series A Conversion Price Upon Issuance of Additional Shares of Ordinary Shares), the applicable Series A Conversion Price shall be readjusted to such applicable Series A Conversion Price as would have obtained had such Option or Convertible Security (or portion thereof) never been issued.
     
  (e) If the number of Ordinary Shares issuable upon the exercise, conversion and/or exchange of any Option or Convertible Security, or the consideration payable to the Company upon such exercise, conversion and/or exchange, is calculable at the time such Option or Convertible Security is issued or amended but is subject to adjustment based upon subsequent events, any adjustment to the applicable Series A Conversion Price provided for in this Section 3.5.6 shall be effected at the time of such issuance or amendment based on such number of shares or amount of consideration without regard to any provisions for subsequent adjustments (and any subsequent adjustments shall be treated as provided in clauses (b) and (c) of this Section 3.5.6). If the number of Ordinary Shares issuable upon the exercise, conversion and/or exchange of any Option or Convertible Security, or the consideration payable to the Company upon such exercise, conversion and/or exchange, cannot be calculated at all at the time such Option or Convertible Security is issued or amended, any adjustment to the applicable Series A Conversion Price that would result under the terms of this Section 3.5.6 at the time of such issuance or amendment shall instead be effected at the time such number of shares and/or amount of consideration is first calculable (even if subject to subsequent adjustments), assuming for purposes of calculating such adjustment to the applicable Series A Conversion Price that such issuance or amendment took place at the time such calculation can first be made.

 

3.5.7.

Adjustment of Applicable Series A Conversion Price Upon Issuance of Additional Ordinary Shares

 

In the event the Company shall at any time after the Series A Original Issue Date issue Additional Shares of Ordinary Shares (including Additional Shares of Ordinary Shares deemed to be issued pursuant to Section 3.5.6 above (Deemed Issue of Additional Shares of Ordinary Shares)), without consideration or for a consideration per share less than the applicable Series A Conversion Price of the Series A2 Preferred Shares, the Series A1-A Preferred Shares, as applicable (but for avoidance of doubt, not the applicable Series A4 Preferred Shares Conversion Price), in effect immediately prior to such issuance or deemed issuance, then the applicable Series A Conversion Price of the Series A2 Preferred Shares or the Series A1-A Preferred Shares, as applicable (but for avoidance of doubt, not the applicable Series A4 Preferred Share Conversion Price), shall be reduced, concurrently with such issuance or deemed issuance, to the consideration per share received by the Company for such issue or deemed issue of the Additional Shares of Ordinary Shares; provided that if such issuance or deemed issuance was without consideration, then the Company shall be deemed to have received an aggregate of US$0.00001 of consideration for all such Additional Shares of Ordinary Shares issued or deemed to be issued. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, in no event shall the Series A2 Conversion Price or the Series A1-A Conversion Price be reduced by the operation of the immediately preceding sentence to a Conversion Price that is less than US$0.43 per share.

 

21

 

 

3.5.8. Determination of Consideration

 

For purposes of this Section 3.5, the consideration received by the Company for the issuance or deemed issuance of any Additional Shares of Ordinary Shares shall be computed as follows:

 

  (a) Cash and Property

 

Such consideration shall:

 

  (i) insofar as it consists of cash, be computed at the aggregate amount of cash received by the Company, excluding amounts paid or payable for accrued interest;
     
  (ii) insofar as it consists of property other than cash, be computed at the fair market value thereof at the time of such issue, as determined in good faith by the directors of the Company; and
     
  (iii) in the event Additional Shares of Ordinary Shares are issued together with other shares or securities or other assets of the Company for consideration which covers both, be the proportion of such consideration so received, computed as provided in clauses (i) and (ii) above, as determined in good faith by the directors of the Company.

 

  (b) Options and Convertible Securities

 

The consideration per share received by the Company for Additional Shares of Ordinary Shares deemed to have been issued pursuant to Section 3.5.6 above (Deemed Issue of Additional Shares of Ordinary Shares), relating to Options and Convertible Securities, shall be determined by dividing:

 

  (i) the total amount, if any, received or receivable by the Company as consideration for the issue of such Options or Convertible Securities, plus the minimum aggregate amount of additional consideration (as set forth in the instruments relating thereto, without regard to any provision contained therein for a subsequent adjustment of such consideration) payable to the Company upon the exercise of such Options or the conversion or exchange of such Convertible Securities, or in the case of Options for Convertible Securities, the exercise of such Options for Convertible Securities and the conversion or exchange of such Convertible Securities, by
     
  (ii) the maximum number of shares of Ordinary Shares (as set forth in the instruments relating thereto, without regard to any provision contained therein for a subsequent adjustment of such number) issuable upon the exercise of such Options or the conversion or exchange of such Convertible Securities, or in the case of Options for Convertible Securities, the exercise of such Options for Convertible Securities and the conversion or exchange of such Convertible Securities.

 

22

 

 

3.5.9. Limitation on Beneficial Ownership

 

The Company shall not effect the conversion of any of the Series A Preferred Shares held by a shareholder of the Company, and such shareholder shall not have the right to convert any of the Series A Preferred Shares held by such holder pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Memorandum and Articles of Association, to the extent that after giving effect to such conversion, such shareholder together with the other Attribution Parties collectively would beneficially own in excess of 4.99% (or upon the election by a shareholder of Series A Preferred Shares prior to the issuance of any Preferred Shares, 9.99%) (the “Maximum Percentage”) of the Ordinary Shares outstanding immediately after giving effect to such conversion. For purposes of the foregoing sentence, the aggregate number of Ordinary Shares beneficially owned by such shareholder of Series A Preferred Shares and the other Attribution Parties shall include the number of Ordinary Shares held by such shareholder of Series A Preferred Shares and all other Attribution Parties plus the number of Ordinary Shares issuable upon conversion of the Series A Preferred Shares with respect to which the determination of such sentence is being made, but shall exclude Ordinary Shares which would be issuable upon (A) conversion of the remaining, nonconverted Series A Preferred Shares beneficially owned by such shareholder of Series A Preferred Shares or any of the other Attribution Parties and (B) exercise or conversion of the unexercised or nonconverted portion of any other securities of the Company (including, without limitation, any Convertible Security) beneficially owned by such shareholder of Series A Preferred Shares or any other Attribution Party subject to a limitation on conversion or exercise analogous to the limitation contained in this Section 3.5.9. For purposes of this Section 3.5.9, beneficial ownership shall be calculated in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act. For purposes of determining the number of outstanding Ordinary Shares a shareholder of Series A Preferred Shares may acquire upon the conversion of such Series A Preferred Shares without exceeding the Maximum Percentage, such shareholder may rely upon the number of outstanding Ordinary Shares as provided by the Company upon request of the shareholder of Series A Preferred Shares (the “Outstanding Share Number”). If the Company receives a notice of conversion from a shareholder of Series A Preferred Shares at a time when the actual number of outstanding Ordinary Shares is less than the Outstanding Share Number, the Company shall notify such shareholder of Preferred Shares in writing of the number of Ordinary Shares then outstanding and, to the extent that such Conversion Notice would otherwise cause the beneficial ownership of such shareholder of Series A Preferred Shares, as determined pursuant to this Section 3.5.9, to exceed the Maximum Percentage, such shareholder must notify the Company of a reduced number of Ordinary Shares to be purchased pursuant to such Conversion Notice. For any reason at any time, upon the written or oral request of any shareholder of Series A Preferred Shares, the Company shall within one (1) business day confirm orally and in writing or by electronic mail to such shareholder of Preferred Shares the number of Ordinary Shares then outstanding. In any case, the number of outstanding Ordinary Shares shall be determined after giving effect to the conversion or exercise of securities of the Company, including such Series A Preferred Shares, by such shareholder of Series A Preferred Shares and any other Attribution Party since the date as of which the Outstanding Share Number was reported. In the event that the issuance of Ordinary Shares to a shareholder of Series A Preferred Shares upon conversion of such Series A Preferred Shares results in such shareholder of Series A Preferred Shares and the other Attribution Parties being deemed to beneficially own, in the aggregate, more than the Maximum Percentage of the number of outstanding Ordinary Shares (as determined under Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act), the number of shares so issued by which such shareholder of Series A Preferred Shares and the other Attribution Parties’ aggregate beneficial ownership exceeds the Maximum Percentage (the “Excess Shares”) shall be deemed null and void and shall be cancelled ab initio, and such shareholder of Series A Preferred Shares shall not have the power to vote or to transfer the Excess Shares. Upon delivery of a written notice to the Company, any shareholder of Series A Preferred Shares may from time to time increase (with such increase not effective until the sixty-first (61st) day after delivery of such notice) or decrease the Maximum Percentage of such shareholder of Series A Preferred Shares to any other percentage not in excess of 9.99% as specified in such notice; provided that (i) any such increase in the Maximum Percentage will not be effective until the sixty-first (61st) day after such notice is delivered to the Company and (ii) any such increase or decrease will apply only to such shareholder of Series A Preferred Shares and the other Attribution Parties and not to any other shareholder of Series A Preferred Shares. For purposes of clarity, the Ordinary Shares issuable to a shareholder of Series A Preferred Shares pursuant to the terms of this Memorandum and Articles of Association in excess of the Maximum Percentage shall not be deemed to be beneficially owned by such shareholder of Series A Preferred Shares for any purpose including for purposes of Section 13(d) or Rule 16a-1(a)(1) of the Exchange Act. No prior inability to convert such Series A Preferred Shares pursuant to this paragraph shall have any effect on the applicability of the provisions of this paragraph with respect to any subsequent determination of convertibility. The provisions of this paragraph shall be construed and implemented in a manner otherwise than in strict conformity with the terms of this Section 3.5.9 to the extent necessary to correct this paragraph (or any portion of this paragraph) which may be defective or inconsistent with the intended beneficial ownership limitation contained in this Section 3.5.9 or to make changes or supplements necessary or desirable to properly give effect to such limitation. The limitation contained in this paragraph may not be waived and shall apply to a successor shareholder of such Series A Preferred Shares.

 

23

 

 

3.5.10. Adjustment for Share Splits, Divisions and Combinations

 

If the Company shall at any time or from time to time after the Series A Original Issue Date effect a division of the outstanding Ordinary Shares, the applicable Series A Conversion Price and Series Seed Conversion Price in effect immediately before that division shall be proportionately decreased so that the number of Ordinary Shares issuable on conversion of each share of such series shall be increased in proportion to such increase in the aggregate number of Ordinary Shares outstanding. If the Company shall at any time or from time to time after the Series A Original Issue Date combine the outstanding shares of Ordinary Shares, the applicable Series A Conversion Price and Series Seed Conversion Price in effect immediately before the combination shall be proportionately increased so that the number of shares of Ordinary Shares issuable on conversion of each share of such series shall be decreased in proportion to such decrease in the aggregate number of Ordinary Shares outstanding. Any adjustment under this Section 3.5.10 shall become effective at the close of business on the date the division or combination becomes effective.

 

3.5.11. Adjustment for Certain Dividends and Distributions

 

In the event the Company at any time or from time to time after the Series A Original Issue Date shall make or issue, or fix a record date for the determination of shareholders of Ordinary Shares entitled to receive, a dividend or other distribution payable on the Ordinary Shares in additional Ordinary Shares, then and in each such event the applicable Conversion Price in effect immediately before such event shall be decreased as of the time of such issuance or, in the event such a record date shall have been fixed, as of the close of business on such record date, by multiplying the applicable Conversion Price then in effect by a fraction:

 

  (a) the numerator of which shall be the total number of Ordinary Shares issued and outstanding immediately prior to the time of such issuance or the close of business on such record date, and
     
  (b) the denominator of which shall be the total number of Ordinary Shares issued and outstanding immediately prior to the time of such issuance or the close of business on such record date plus the number of Ordinary Shares issuable in payment of such dividend or distribution.

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing (i) if such record date shall have been fixed and such dividend is not fully paid or if such distribution is not fully made on the date fixed therefor, the applicable Conversion Price shall be recomputed accordingly as of the close of business on such record date and thereafter the applicable Conversion Price shall be adjusted pursuant to this Section 3.5.11 as of the time of actual payment of such dividends or distributions; and (ii) that no such adjustment shall be made if the shareholders of Series A Preferred Shares simultaneously receive a dividend or other distribution of Ordinary Shares in a number equal to the number of Ordinary Shares as they would have received if all outstanding Series A Preferred Shares had been converted into Ordinary Shares on the date of such event

 

3.5.12. Adjustments for other Dividends and Distributions

 

In the event the Company at any time or from time to time after the Series A Original Issue Date shall make or issue, or fix a record date for the determination of shareholders of Ordinary Shares entitled to receive, a dividend or other distribution payable in shares of the Company (other than a distribution of Ordinary Shares in respect of outstanding Ordinary Shares) or in other property and the provisions of Section 3.5.11do not apply to such dividend or distribution, then and in each such event the shareholders of Series A Preferred Shares shall receive, simultaneously with the distribution to the shareholders of Ordinary Shares, a dividend or other distribution of such shares or other property in an amount equal to the amount of such shares or other property as they would have received if all outstanding Series A Preferred Shares had been converted into Ordinary Shares on the date of such event.

3.5.13. Adjustment for Merger or Reorganization

 

Subject to the provisions of Section 3.4.2, if there shall occur any reorganization, recapitalization, reclassification, consolidation or merger involving the Company in which the Ordinary Shares (but not the Series A Preferred Shares) is converted into or exchanged for securities, cash or other property (other than a transaction covered by the Sections 3.5.4 to 3.5.7, above (Adjustments to Series A Conversion Price for Diluting Issues, Adjustment for Certain Dividends and Distributions or Adjustments for Other Dividends and Distributions), then, following any such reorganization, recapitalization, reclassification, consolidation or merger, each Series A Preferred Share shall thereafter be convertible in lieu of the Ordinary Shares into which it was convertible prior to such event into the kind and amount of securities, cash or other property which a shareholder of the number of Ordinary Shares of the Company issuable upon conversion of one Series A Preferred Shares immediately prior to such reorganization, recapitalization, reclassification, consolidation or merger would have been entitled to receive pursuant to such transaction; and, in such case, appropriate adjustment (as determined in good faith by the directors of the Company) shall be made in the application of the provisions in this Section 3.5 with respect to the rights and interests thereafter of the shareholders of the Series A Preferred Shares, to the end that the provisions set forth in this Section 3.5 (including provisions with respect to changes in and other adjustments of the applicable Conversion Price) shall thereafter be applicable, as nearly as reasonably may be, in relation to any securities or other property thereafter deliverable upon the conversion of the Series A Preferred Shares.

 

3.5.14. Certificate as to Adjustments

 

Upon the occurrence of each adjustment or readjustment of the applicable Conversion Price pursuant to this Section 3.5, the Company at its expense shall, as promptly as reasonably practicable but in any event not later than ten (10) days thereafter, compute such adjustment or readjustment in accordance with the terms hereof and furnish to each shareholder of Series A Preferred Shares a share certificate setting forth such adjustment or readjustment (including the kind and amount of securities, cash or other property into which the Series A Preferred Shares is convertible) and showing in detail the facts upon which such adjustment or readjustment is based. The Company shall, as promptly as reasonably practicable after the written request at any time of any shareholder of Series A Preferred Shares (but in any event not later than ten (10) days thereafter), furnish or cause to be furnished to such shareholder a share certificate setting forth (i) the applicable Conversion Price then in effect, and (ii) the number of Ordinary Shares and the amount, if any, of other securities, cash or property which then would be received upon the conversion of Series A Preferred Shares.

4. SERIES B PREFERRED SHARES
   
4.1. Protective Provisions

 

As long as any Series B Preferred Shares are outstanding, the Company shall not, without the written consent or affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the then outstanding Series B Preferred Shares:

 

  (a) alter or change adversely the powers, preferences or rights given to the Series B Preferred Shares or alter or amend this Memorandum and Articles, in any manner that adversely affects any rights of the holders of the Series B Preferred Shares;
     
  (b) increase the number of authorised Series B Preferred Shares; or
     
  (c) enter into any agreement with respect to any of the foregoing.

 

4.1A Waiver

 

Any rights, powers, preferences and other terms of the Series B Preferred Shares in this Schedule, the Memorandum or the Articles, may be waived on behalf of all holders of Series B Preferred Shares by the written consent or affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the then outstanding Series B Preferred Shares.

 

4.2. Voting Rights

 

The Series B Preferred Shares shall not be entitled to vote on any Resolution of Shareholders, except as expressly provided to the contrary in the provisions of the Act or the Schedule or in relation to a variation of the rights of the Series B Preferred Shares pursuant to the Memorandum.

 

4.3. Dividend Rights

 

The holders of Series B Preferred Shares shall be entitled to receive, and the Company shall pay, dividends on Series B Preferred Shares equal (on an as-if-converted-to-Ordinary Shares basis) to and in the same form as dividends actually paid on Ordinary Shares when, as and if such dividends are paid on Ordinary Shares. No other dividends or other distributions shall be paid on Series B Preferred Shares.

 

4.4. Liquidation, Dissolution or Winding Up

 

Upon any liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of the Company, whether voluntary or involuntary (a “Liquidation”), the shareholders shall be entitled to receive out of the assets, whether capital or surplus, of the Company the same amount that a shareholder of Ordinary Shares would receive if the Series B Preferred Shares were fully converted (disregarding for such purposes any conversion limitations hereunder) to Ordinary Shares which amounts shall be paid pari passu with all shareholders of Ordinary Shares. The Company shall mail written notice of any such Liquidation, not less than 45 days prior to the payment date stated therein, to each holder of Series B Preferred Shares.

 

26

 

 

4.5. Conversion Rights
   
4.5.1. Conversions at Option of Series B Preferred Shareholder

 

Each Series B Preferred Share shall be convertible, at any time and from time to time from and after the Series B Original Issue Date at the option of the shareholder thereof, into that number of Ordinary Shares (subject to the limitation set forth in Section 4.5.4 below) determined by dividing the Stated Value of such share of Series B Preferred Shares by the Conversion Price. Shareholders shall effect conversions by providing the Company with a conversion notice in the form satisfactory to the Company (a “Notice of Conversion”). Each Notice of Conversion shall specify the number of Series B Preferred Shares to be converted, the number of Series B Preferred Shares owned prior to the conversion at issue, the number of Series B Preferred Shares owned subsequent to the conversion at issue and the date on which such conversion is to be effected, which date may not be prior to the date the applicable shareholder delivers by facsimile such Notice of Conversion to the Company (such date, the “Conversion Date”). If no Conversion Date is specified in a Notice of Conversion, the Conversion Date shall be the date that such Notice of Conversion to the Company is deemed delivered hereunder. No ink-original Notice of Conversion shall be required, nor shall any medallion guarantee (or other type of guarantee or notarization) of any Notice of Conversion form be required. The calculations and entries set forth in the Notice of Conversion shall control in the absence of manifest or mathematical error. To effect conversions of Series B Preferred Shares, a shareholder shall not be required to surrender the certificate(s) representing the Series B Preferred Shares to the Company unless all of the Series B Preferred Shares represented thereby are so converted, in which case such shareholder shall deliver the certificate representing such Series B Preferred Shares promptly following the Conversion Date at issue. Series B Preferred Shares converted into Ordinary Shares or redeemed in accordance with the terms hereof shall be canceled and shall not be reissued.

 

4.5.2. Conversion Price

 

The conversion price for the Series B Preferred Shares shall equal US$3.00, subject to adjustment as set out in Section 4 of this Schedule (the “Series B Conversion Price”).

 

27

 

 

4.5.3. Mechanics of Conversion

 

  (a) Delivery of Conversion Shares Upon Conversion

 

Not later than the earlier of (i) two (2) Trading Days and (ii) the number of Trading Days comprising the Standard Settlement Period (as defined below) after each Conversion Date (the “Share Delivery Date”), the Company shall deliver, or cause to be delivered, to the converting Shareholder (A) the number of Conversion Shares being acquired upon the conversion of the Series B Preferred Shares, and (B) a bank check in the amount of accrued and unpaid dividends, if any. The Company shall use its best efforts to deliver the Conversion Shares in book entry form. As used herein, “Standard Settlement Period” means the standard settlement period, expressed in a number of Trading Days, on the Company’s primary Trading Market with respect to the Ordinary Shares as in effect on the date of delivery of the Notice of Conversion.

 

  (b) Failure to Deliver Conversion Shares

 

If, in the case of any Notice of Conversion, such Conversion Shares are not delivered to or as directed by the applicable holder of the Conversion Shares by the Share Delivery Date, the Shareholder shall be entitled to elect by written notice to the Company at any time on or before its receipt of such Conversion Shares, to rescind such conversion, in which event the Company shall promptly return to the Shareholder any original Series B Preferred Share certificate delivered to the Company and the shareholder shall promptly return to the Company the Conversion Shares issued to such Shareholder pursuant to the rescinded Notice of Conversion.

 

  (c) Obligation Absolute; Partial Liquidated Damages

 

The Company’s obligation to issue and deliver the Conversion Shares upon conversion of Series B Preferred Shares in accordance with the terms hereof are absolute and unconditional, irrespective of any action or inaction by a Shareholder to enforce the same, any waiver or consent with respect to any provision hereof, the recovery of any judgment against any Person or any action to enforce the same, or any setoff, counterclaim, recoupment, limitation or termination, or any breach or alleged breach by such shareholder or any other Person of any obligation to the Company or any violation or alleged violation of law by such shareholder or any other person, and irrespective of any other circumstance which might otherwise limit such obligation of the Company to such Shareholder in connection with the issuance of such Conversion Shares; provided, however, that such delivery shall not operate as a waiver by the Company of any such action that the Company may have against such shareholder. In the event a shareholder shall elect to convert any or all of the Stated Value of its Series B Preferred Shares, the Company may not refuse conversion based on any claim that such Shareholder or any one associated or affiliated with such shareholder has been engaged in any violation of law, or agreement or for any other reason, unless an injunction from a court, on notice to shareholder, restraining and/or enjoining conversion of all or part of the Series B Preferred Shares of such shareholder shall have been sought and obtained, and the Company posts a surety bond for the benefit of such shareholder in the amount of 150% of the Stated Value of Series B Preferred Shares which is subject to the injunction, which bond shall remain in effect until the completion of arbitration/litigation of the underlying dispute and the proceeds of which shall be payable to such shareholder to the extent it obtains judgment. In the absence of such injunction, the Company shall issue Conversion Shares upon a properly noticed conversion. If the Company fails to deliver to a shareholder such Conversion Shares pursuant to Section 4.5.3(a) by the Share Delivery Date applicable to such conversion, the Company shall pay to such shareholder, in cash, as liquidated damages and not as a penalty, for each $5,000 of Stated Value of Series B Preferred Shares being converted, $50 per Trading Day (increasing to $100 per Trading Day on the third Trading Day and increasing to $200 per Trading Day on the sixth Trading Day after such damages begin to accrue) for each Trading Day after the Share Delivery Date until such Conversion Shares are delivered or shareholder rescinds such conversion. Nothing herein shall limit a shareholder’s right to pursue actual damages for the Company’s failure to deliver Conversion Shares within the period specified herein and such Shareholder shall have the right to pursue all remedies available to it hereunder, at law or in equity including, without limitation, a decree of specific performance and/or injunctive relief. The exercise of any such rights shall not prohibit a Shareholder from seeking to enforce damages pursuant to any other Section hereof or under applicable law.

 

28

 

 

  (d) Compensation for Buy-In on Failure and Timely Deliver Conversion Shares Upon Conversion

 

In addition to any other rights available to the shareholder, if the Company fails for any reason to deliver to a Shareholder the applicable Conversion Shares by the Share Delivery Date pursuant to Section 4.5.3(a), and if after such Share Delivery Date such shareholder is required by its brokerage firm to purchase (in an open market transaction or otherwise), or the Shareholder’s brokerage firm otherwise purchases, Ordinary Shares to deliver in satisfaction of a sale by such shareholder of the Conversion Shares which such shareholder was entitled to receive upon the conversion relating to such Share Delivery Date (a “Buy-In”), then the Company shall (A) pay in cash to such shareholder (in addition to any other remedies available to or elected by such shareholder) the amount, if any, by which (x) such shareholder’s total purchase price (including any brokerage commissions) for the Ordinary Shares so purchased exceeds (y) the product of (1) the aggregate number of Ordinary Shares that such shareholder was entitled to receive from the conversion at issue multiplied by (2) the actual sale price at which the sell order giving rise to such purchase obligation was executed (including any brokerage commissions) and (B) at the option of such shareholder, either reissue (if surrendered) the Series B Preferred Shares equal to the number of Series B Preferred Shares submitted for conversion (in which case, such conversion shall be deemed rescinded) or deliver to such shareholder the number of Ordinary Shares that would have been issued if the Company had timely complied with its delivery requirements under Section 4.5.3(a). For example, if a shareholder purchases Ordinary Shares having a total purchase price of $11,000 to cover a Buy-In with respect to an attempted conversion of Series B Preferred Shares with respect to which the actual sale price of the Conversion Shares (including any brokerage commissions) giving rise to such purchase obligation was a total of $10,000 under clause (A) of the immediately preceding sentence, the Company shall be required to pay such shareholder $1,000. The shareholder shall provide the Company written notice indicating the amounts payable to such shareholder in respect of the Buy-In and, upon request of the Company, evidence of the amount of such loss. Nothing herein shall limit a shareholder’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 timely deliver Conversion Shares upon conversion of Series B Preferred Shares as required pursuant to the terms hereof.

 

  (e) Reservation of Shares Issuable on Conversion

 

The Company covenants that it will at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized and unissued Ordinary Shares for the sole purpose of issuance upon conversion of the Series B Preferred Shares as herein provided, free from preemptive rights or any other actual contingent purchase rights of Persons other than the shareholder (and the other shareholders of the Series B Preferred Shares), not less than such aggregate number of the Ordinary Shares as shall be issuable (taking into account the adjustments and restrictions of Section 4.5.6) upon the conversion of the then outstanding Series B Preferred Shares. The Company covenants that all Ordinary Shares that shall be so issuable shall, upon issue, be duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable.

 

  (f) Fractional Shares

 

No fractional shares or scrip representing fractional shares shall be issued upon the conversion of the Series B Preferred Shares. As to any fraction of a share which the shareholder would otherwise be entitled to purchase upon such conversion, the Company shall at its election, either pay a cash adjustment in respect of such final fraction in an amount equal to such fraction multiplied by the Conversion Price or round up to the next whole share

 

  (g) Transfer Taxes and Expenses

 

The issuance of Conversion Shares on conversion of the Series B Preferred Shares shall be made without charge to any shareholder for any taxes that may be payable in respect of the issue or delivery of such Conversion Shares, provided that the Company shall not be required to pay any tax that may be payable in respect of any transfer involved in the issuance and delivery of any such Conversion Shares upon conversion in a name other than that of the shareholders of such Series B Preferred Shares and the Company shall not be required to issue or deliver such Conversion Shares unless or until the Person or Persons requesting the issuance thereof shall have paid to the Company the amount of such tax or shall have established to the satisfaction of the Company that such tax has been paid. The Company shall pay all Transfer Agent fees required for same-day processing of any Notice of Conversion and all fees to the Depository Trust Company (or another established clearing corporation performing similar functions) required for same-day electronic delivery of the Conversion Shares.

 

29

 

 

4.5.4. Beneficial Ownership Limitation

 

The Company shall not effect any conversion of the Series B Preferred Shares, and a shareholder shall not have the right to convert any portion of the Series B Preferred Shares, to the extent that, after giving effect to the conversion set forth on the applicable Notice of Conversion, such shareholder (together with such shareholder’s Affiliates, and any Persons acting as a group together with such shareholder or any of such shareholder’s Affiliates (such Persons, “Attribution Parties”)) would beneficially own in excess of the Beneficial Ownership Limitation (as defined below). For purposes of the foregoing sentence, the number of Ordinary Shares beneficially owned by such shareholder and its Affiliates and Attribution Parties shall include the number of Ordinary Shares issuable upon conversion of the Series B Preferred Shares with respect to which such determination is being made, but shall exclude the number of Ordinary Shares which are issuable upon (i) conversion of the remaining, unconverted Stated Value of Series B Preferred Shares beneficially owned by such Shareholder or any of its Affiliates or Attribution Parties and (ii) exercise or conversion of the unexercised or unconverted portion of any other securities of the Company subject to a limitation on conversion or exercise analogous to the limitation contained herein (including, without limitation, the Series B Preferred Shares) beneficially owned by such shareholder or any of its Affiliates or Attribution Parties. Except as set forth in the preceding sentence, for purposes of this Section 4.5.6, beneficial ownership shall be calculated in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder. To the extent that the limitation contained in this Section 4.5.6 applies, the determination of whether the Series B Preferred Shares is convertible (in relation to other securities owned by such shareholder together with any Affiliates and Attribution Parties) and of how many Series B Preferred Shares are convertible shall be in the sole discretion of such shareholder, and the submission of a Notice of Conversion shall be deemed to be such shareholder’s determination of whether the Series B Preferred Shares may be converted (in relation to other securities owned by such shareholder together with any Affiliates and Attribution Parties) and how many of the Series B Preferred Shares are convertible, in each case subject to the Beneficial Ownership Limitation. To ensure compliance with this restriction, each shareholder will be deemed to represent to the Company each time it delivers a Notice of Conversion that such Notice of Conversion has not violated the restrictions set forth in this paragraph and the Company shall have no obligation to verify or confirm the accuracy of such determination. In addition, a determination as to any group status as contemplated above shall be determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder. For purposes of this Section 4.5.6, in determining the number of outstanding Ordinary Shares, a shareholder may rely on the number of outstanding Ordinary Shares as stated in the most recent of the following: (i) the Company’s most recent periodic or annual report filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, as the case may be, (ii) a more recent public announcement by the Company or (iii) a more recent written notice by the Company or the Transfer Agent setting forth the number of Ordinary Shares outstanding. Upon the written or oral request (which may be via email) of a shareholder, the Company shall within one Trading Day confirm orally and in writing to such shareholder the number of Ordinary Shares then outstanding. In any case, the number of outstanding of Ordinary Shares shall be determined after giving effect to the conversion or exercise of securities of the Company, including the Series B Preferred Shares, by such shareholder or its Affiliates or Attribution Parties since the date as of which such number of outstanding Ordinary Shares was reported. The “Beneficial Ownership Limitation” shall be 4.99% (or, upon election by a Shareholder prior to the issuance of any Series B Preferred Shares, 9.99%) of the number of Ordinary Shares outstanding immediately after giving effect to the issuance of Ordinary Shares issuable upon conversion of Series B Preferred Shares held by the applicable Shareholder. A shareholder, upon notice to the Company, may increase or decrease the Beneficial Ownership Limitation provisions of this Section 4.5.6 applicable to its Series B Preferred Shares provided that the Beneficial Ownership Limitation in no event exceeds 9.99% of the number of the Ordinary Shares outstanding immediately after giving effect to the issuance of Ordinary Shares upon conversion of the Series B Preferred Shares held by the shareholder and the provisions of this Section 4.5.6 shall continue to apply. Any such increase in the Beneficial Ownership Limitation will not be effective until the 61st day after such notice is delivered to the Company and shall only apply to such shareholder and no other Shareholder. The provisions of this paragraph shall be construed and implemented in a manner otherwise than in strict conformity with the terms of this Section 4.5.6 to correct this paragraph (or any portion hereof) which may be defective or inconsistent with the intended Beneficial Ownership Limitation contained herein or to make changes or supplements necessary or desirable to properly give effect to such limitation. The limitations contained in this paragraph shall apply to a successor shareholder of Series B Preferred Shares.

4.5.5. [RESERVED]
   
4.5.6. Certain Adjustments

 

  (a) Share Dividends and Divisions or Combinations of Shares

 

If the Company, at any time while the Series B Preferred Shares are outstanding: (i) pays a share dividend or issues bonus shares or otherwise makes a distribution or distributions payable in Ordinary Shares on Ordinary Shares or any other Ordinary Share Equivalents (which, for avoidance of doubt, shall not include any Ordinary Shares issued by the Company upon conversion of, or payment of a dividend on, the Series B Preferred Shares), (ii) subdivides outstanding Ordinary Shares into a larger number of shares, (iii) combines (including by way of a reverse share split or combination) outstanding Ordinary Shares into a smaller number of shares, or (iv) issues, in the event of a reclassification of the Ordinary Shares, any shares of the Company, then the Series B Conversion Price shall be multiplied by a fraction of which the numerator shall be the number of Ordinary Shares (excluding any treasury shares of the Company) outstanding immediately before such event, and of which the denominator shall be the number of Ordinary Shares outstanding immediately after such event. Any adjustment made pursuant to this Section 4.5.6 shall become effective immediately after the record date for the determination of shareholders entitled to receive such dividend or distribution and shall become effective immediately after the effective date in the case of a subdivision, combination or re-classification.

 

  (b) Subsequent Rights Offerings

 

In addition to any adjustments pursuant to paragraph 5.3.1, if at any time the Company grants, issues or sells any Ordinary Share Equivalents or rights to purchase shares, warrants, securities or other property pro rata to the record holders of any class of Ordinary Shares (the “Purchase Rights”), then each shareholder of Series B Preferred Shares will be entitled to acquire, upon the terms applicable to such Purchase Rights, the aggregate Purchase Rights which the Shareholder could have acquired if the shareholder had held the number of Ordinary Shares acquirable upon complete conversion of such shareholder’s Series B Preferred Shares (without regard to any limitations on exercise hereof, including without limitation, the Beneficial Ownership Limitation) immediately before the date on which a record is taken for the grant, issuance or sale of such Purchase Rights, or, if no such record is taken, the date as of which the record shareholders of Ordinary Shares are to be determined for the grant, issue or sale of such Purchase Rights (provided, however, to the extent that the Shareholder’s right to participate in any such Purchase Right would result in the Shareholder exceeding the Beneficial Ownership Limitation, then the shareholder shall not be entitled to participate in such Purchase Right to such extent (or beneficial ownership of such Ordinary Shares as a result of such Purchase Right to such extent) and such Purchase Right to such extent shall be held in abeyance for the Shareholder until such time, if ever, as its right thereto would not result in the Shareholder exceeding the Beneficial Ownership Limitation)

 

  (c) Pro Rata Distributions

 

During such time as any Series B Preferred Share is outstanding, if the Company declares or makes any dividend or other distribution of its assets (or rights to acquire its assets) to shareholders of Ordinary Shares, by way of return of capital or otherwise (including, without limitation, any distribution of cash, shares or other securities, property or options by way of a dividend, spin off, reclassification, corporate rearrangement, scheme of arrangement or other similar transaction) (a “Payment Distribution”), at any time after the issuance of the Series B Preferred Shares, then, in each such case, each holder of Series B Preferred Shares shall be entitled to participate in such Payment Distribution to the same extent that the shareholder would have participated therein if the shareholder had held the number of Ordinary Shares acquirable upon complete conversion of the Series B Preferred Shares (without regard to any limitations on conversion hereof, including without limitation, the Beneficial Ownership Limitation) immediately before the date of which a record is taken for such Payment Distribution, or, if no such record is taken, the date as of which the record shareholders of Ordinary Shares are to be determined for the participation in such Payment Distribution (provided, however, to the extent that the shareholder’s right to participate in any such Payment Distribution would result in the shareholder exceeding the Beneficial Ownership Limitation, then the shareholder shall not be entitled to participate in such Payment Distribution to such extent (or in the beneficial ownership of any Ordinary Shares as a result of such Payment Distribution to such extent) and the portion of such Payment Distribution shall be held in abeyance for the benefit of the shareholder until such time, if ever, as its right thereto would not result in the shareholder exceeding the Beneficial Ownership Limitation).

 

31

 

 

  (d) Fundamental Transaction

 

If, at any time while the Series B Preferred Shares is outstanding, (i) the Company, directly or indirectly, in one or more related transactions effects any merger or consolidation of the Company with or into another Person, (ii) the Company, directly or indirectly, effects any sale, lease, license, assignment, transfer, conveyance or other disposition of all or substantially all of its assets in one or a series of related transactions, (iii) any, direct or indirect, purchase offer, tender offer or exchange offer (whether by the Company or another Person) is completed pursuant to which shareholders of Ordinary Shares are permitted to sell, tender or exchange their shares for other securities, cash or property and has been accepted by the holders of 50% or more of the outstanding Ordinary Shares, (iv) the Company, directly or indirectly, in one or more related transactions effects any reclassification, reorganization or recapitalization of the Ordinary Shares or any compulsory share exchange pursuant to which the Ordinary Shares is effectively converted into or exchanged for other securities, cash or property, or (v) the Company, directly or indirectly, in one or more related transactions consummates a share or share purchase agreement or other business combination (including, without limitation, a reorganization, recapitalization, spin-off or scheme of arrangement) with another Person whereby such other Person acquires more than 50% of the outstanding Ordinary Shares (not including any Ordinary Shares held by the other Person or other Persons making or party to, or associated or affiliated with the other Persons making or party to, such stock or share purchase agreement or other business combination) (each a “Fundamental Transaction”), then, upon any subsequent conversion of the Series B Preferred Shares, the shareholder shall have the right to receive, for each Conversion Share that would have been issuable upon such conversion immediately prior to the occurrence of such Fundamental Transaction (without regard to any limitation in Section 4.5.4 above, Beneficial Ownership Limited and Issuance Limited, on the conversion of the Series B Preferred Shares), the number of Ordinary Shares of the successor or acquiring company or of the Company, if it is the surviving company, and any additional consideration (the “Alternate Consideration”) receivable as a result of such Fundamental Transaction by a holder of the number of Ordinary Shares for which the Series B Preferred Shares is convertible immediately prior to such Fundamental Transaction (without regard to any limitation in Section 4.5.4 on the conversion of the Series B Preferred Shares). For purposes of any such conversion, the determination of the Conversion Price shall be appropriately adjusted to apply to such Alternate Consideration based on the amount of Alternate Consideration issuable in respect of one Ordinary Share in such Fundamental Transaction, and the Company shall apportion the Conversion Price among the Alternate Consideration in a reasonable manner reflecting the relative value of any different components of the Alternate Consideration. If shareholders of Ordinary Shares are given any choice as to the securities, cash or property to be received in a Fundamental Transaction, then the Shareholder shall be given the same choice as to the Alternate Consideration it receives upon any conversion of the Series B Preferred Shares following such Fundamental Transaction. To the extent necessary to effectuate the foregoing provisions, any successor to the Company or surviving entity in such Fundamental Transaction shall file a new Memorandum and Articles of Association with the same terms and conditions and issue to the shareholders new preferred shares consistent with the foregoing provisions and evidencing the shareholders’ right to convert such preferred share into Alternate Consideration. The Company shall cause any successor entity in a Fundamental Transaction in which the Company is not the survivor (the “Successor Entity”) to assume in writing all of the obligations of the Company under this Memorandum and Articles of Association and the other associated transaction documents in respect of the Series B Preferred Shares in accordance with the provisions of this Section 4.5.6 pursuant to written agreements in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the shareholder and approved by the shareholder (without unreasonable delay) prior to such Fundamental Transaction and shall, at the option of the shareholder of the Series B Preferred Shares, deliver to the shareholder in exchange for the Series B Preferred Shares a security of the Successor Entity evidenced by a written instrument substantially similar in form and substance to the Series B Preferred Shares which is convertible for a corresponding number of shares of such Successor Entity (or its parent entity) equivalent to the shares of Ordinary Shares acquirable and receivable upon conversion of the Series B Preferred Shares (without regard to any limitations on the conversion of the Series B Preferred Shares) prior to such Fundamental Transaction, and with a conversion price which applies the conversion price hereunder to such shares (but taking into account the relative value of the Ordinary Shares pursuant to such Fundamental Transaction and the value of such shares, such number of shares and such conversion price being for the purpose of protecting the economic value of the Series B Preferred Shares immediately prior to the consummation of such Fundamental Transaction), and which is reasonably satisfactory in form and substance to the shareholder. Upon the occurrence of any such Fundamental Transaction, the Successor Entity shall succeed to, and be substituted for (so that from and after the date of such Fundamental Transaction, the provisions of this Memorandum and Articles of Association and the other associated transaction documents in respect of the Series B Preferred Shares referring to the “Company” shall refer instead to the Successor Entity), and may exercise every right and power of the Company and shall assume all of the obligations of the Company under this Memorandum and Articles of Association and the other associated transaction documents in respect of the Series B Preferred Shares with the same effect as if such Successor Entity had been named as the Company herein.

 

32

 

 

  (e) Calculations

 

All calculations under this Section 4.5 shall be made to the nearest cent or the nearest 1/100th of a Share, as the case may be. For purposes of this Section 4.5, the number of Ordinary Shares deemed to be issued and outstanding as of a given date shall be the sum of the number of Ordinary Shares (excluding any treasury shares of the Company) issued and outstanding.

 

4.6. Notices to Series B Preferred Shareholders
   
4.6.1. Adjustment of Series B Conversion Price

 

Whenever the Series B Conversion Price is adjusted pursuant to this Section 4, the Company shall promptly deliver to each holder of Series B Preferred Shares a notice setting forth the Series B Conversion Price after such adjustment and setting forth a brief statement of the facts requiring such adjustment.

 

4.6.2. Notice to Allow Conversion by Series B Shareholder

2.4 If several persons are registered as joint holders of any Shares, any one of such persons may give an effectual receipt for any distribution.

2.7 Before issuing Shares for a consideration which is, in whole or in part, other than money, a Resolution of Directors shall be passed stating:

 

  (a) the amount to be credited for the issue of the Shares; and
     
  (b) that, in the opinion of the directors, the present cash value of the non-money consideration and money consideration, if any, is not less than the amount to be credited for the issue of the Shares.

Notwithstanding any provision of these Articles, a class or series of Shares shall not be treated as two classes by virtue only of that class or series comprising both certificated Shares and uncertificated Shares or as a result of any provision of these Articles which apply only in respect of certificated or uncertificated Shares.

5 FORFEITURE
   
5.1 Shares that are not fully paid on issue are subject to the forfeiture provisions set forth in this Regulation and for this purpose Shares issued for a promissory note, other written obligation to contribute money or property or a contract for future services are deemed to be not fully paid.

38

 

 

7.6 The inadvertent failure of a director who convenes a meeting to give notice of a meeting to a Shareholder or another director, or the fact that a Shareholder or another director has not received notice, does not invalidate the meeting.
   
7.7 A Shareholder may be represented at a meeting of Shareholders by a proxy who may speak and vote on behalf of the Shareholder.
   
7.8 The instrument appointing a proxy shall be produced at the place designated for the meeting before the time for holding the meeting at which the person named in such instrument proposes to vote. The notice of the meeting may specify an alternative or additional place or time at which the proxy shall be presented.

……………………………

Shareholder

 

7.10 The following applies where Shares are jointly owned:

 

  (a) if two or more persons hold Shares jointly each of them may be present in person or by proxy at a meeting of Shareholders and may speak as a Shareholder;
     
  (b) if only one of the joint owners is present in person or by proxy he may vote on behalf of all joint owners; and
     
  (c) if two or more of the joint owners are present in person or by proxy they must vote as one.

 

7.11 A Shareholder shall be deemed to be present at a meeting of Shareholders if he participates by telephone or other electronic means and all Shareholders or their authorised representatives participating in the meeting are able to hear each other.

 

39

 

 

7.12 A meeting of Shareholders is duly constituted if, at the commencement of the meeting, there are present in person or by proxy not less than 50% of the votes of the Shares entitled to vote on Resolutions of Shareholders to be considered at the meeting. A quorum may comprise a single Shareholder or proxy and then such person may pass a Resolution of Shareholders and a certificate signed by such person accompanied where such person be a proxy by a copy of the proxy instrument shall constitute a valid Resolution of Shareholders.
   
7.13 If within two hours from the time appointed for the meeting a quorum is not present, the meeting, if convened upon the requisition of Shareholders, shall be dissolved; in any other case it shall stand adjourned to the next business day in the jurisdiction in which the meeting was to have been held at the same time and place or to such other time and place as the directors may determine, and if at the adjourned meeting there are present within one hour from the time appointed for the meeting in person or by proxy not less than one third of the votes of the Shares or each class or series of Shares entitled to vote on the matters to be considered by the meeting, those present shall constitute a quorum but otherwise the meeting shall be dissolved.
   
7.14 At every meeting of Shareholders, the chairman of the board of directors shall preside as chairman of the meeting. If there is no chairman of the board of directors or if that chairman is not present at the meeting, the Shareholders present shall choose one of their number to be the chairman. If the Shareholders are unable to choose a chairman for any reason, then the person representing the greatest number of voting Shares present in person or by proxy at the meeting shall preside as chairman failing which the oldest individual Shareholder or representative of a Shareholder present shall take the chair.
   
7.15 The chairman may, with the consent of the meeting, adjourn any meeting from time to time, and from place to place, but no business shall be transacted at any adjourned meeting other than the business left unfinished at the meeting from which the adjournment took place.
   
7.16 At any meeting of the Shareholders the chairman is responsible for deciding in such manner as he considers appropriate whether any resolution proposed has been carried or not and the result of his decision shall be announced to the meeting and recorded in the minutes of the meeting. If the chairman has any doubt as to the outcome of the vote on a proposed resolution, he shall cause a poll to be taken of all votes cast upon such resolution. If the chairman fails to take a poll then any Shareholder present in person or by proxy who disputes the announcement by the chairman of the result of any vote may immediately following such announcement demand that a poll be taken and the chairman shall cause a poll to be taken. If a poll is taken at any meeting, the result shall be announced to the meeting and recorded in the minutes of the meeting.
   
7.17 Subject to the specific provisions contained in this Regulation for the appointment of representatives of persons other than individuals the right of any individual to speak for or represent a Shareholder shall be determined by the law of the jurisdiction where, and by the documents by which, the person is constituted or derives its existence. In case of doubt, the directors may in good faith seek legal advice from any qualified person and unless and until a court of competent jurisdiction shall otherwise rule, the directors may rely and act upon such advice without incurring any liability to any Shareholder or the Company.

 

40

 

 

7.18 Any person other than an individual which is a Shareholder may by resolution of its directors or other governing body authorise such individual as it thinks fit to act as its representative at any meeting of Shareholders or of any class of Shareholders, and the individual so authorised shall be entitled to exercise the same rights on behalf of the Shareholder which he represents as that Shareholder could exercise if it were an individual.
   
7.19 The chairman of any meeting at which a vote is cast by proxy or on behalf of any person other than an individual may call for a notarially certified copy of such proxy or authority which shall be produced within 7 days of being so requested or the votes cast by such proxy or on behalf of such person shall be disregarded.
   
7.20 Directors of the Company may attend and speak at any meeting of Shareholders and at any separate meeting of the holders of any class or series of Shares.
   
7.21 An action that may be taken by the Shareholders at a meeting may also be taken by a resolution consented to in writing, without the need for any notice, but if any Resolution of Shareholders is adopted otherwise than by the unanimous written consent of all Shareholders, a copy of such resolution shall forthwith be sent to all Shareholders not consenting to such resolution. The consent may be in the form of counterparts, each counterpart being signed by one or more Shareholders. If the consent is in one or more counterparts, and the counterparts bear different dates, then the resolution shall take effect on the earliest date upon which Shareholders holding a sufficient number of votes of Shares to constitute a Resolution of Shareholders have consented to the resolution by signed counterparts.
   
8 DIRECTORS
   
8.1 The first directors of the Company shall be appointed by the first registered agent within 6 months of the date of incorporation of the Company; and thereafter, the directors shall be elected by Resolution of Shareholders or by Resolution of Directors. If, before the Company has any members, all of the directors appointed by the registered agent resign or die or otherwise cease to exist, the registered agent may appoint one or more further persons as directors of the Company.

41

 

 

8.6 A director may resign his office by giving written notice of his resignation to the Company and the resignation has effect from the date the notice is received by the Company or from such later date as may be specified in the notice. A director shall resign forthwith as a director if he is, or becomes, disqualified from acting as a director under the Act.
   
8.7 The directors may at any time appoint any person to be a director either to fill a vacancy or as an addition to the existing directors. Where the directors appoint a person as director to fill a vacancy, the term shall not exceed the term that remained when the person who has ceased to be a director ceased to hold office.
   
8.8 A vacancy in relation to directors occurs if a director dies or otherwise ceases to hold office prior to the expiration of his term of office.
   
8.9 Where the Company only has one Shareholder who is an individual and that Shareholder is also the sole director of the Company, the sole Shareholder/director may, by instrument in writing, nominate a person who is not disqualified from being a director of the Company as a reserve director of the Company to act in the place of the sole director in the event of his death.

  (b) the date on which each person whose name is entered in the register was appointed as a director, or nominated as a reserve director, of the Company;
     
  (c) the date on which each person named as a director ceased to be a director of the Company;
     
  (d) the date on which the nomination of any person nominated as a reserve director ceased to have effect; and
     
  (e) such other information as may be prescribed by the Act.

 

42

 

 

8.12 The register of directors may be kept in any such form as the directors may approve, but if it is in magnetic, electronic or other data storage form, the Company must be able to produce legible evidence of its contents. Until a Resolution of Directors determining otherwise is passed, the magnetic, electronic or other data storage shall be the original register of directors.
   
8.13 The directors may, by Resolution of Directors, fix the emoluments of directors with respect to services to be rendered in any capacity to the Company.
   
8.14 A director is not required to hold a Share as a qualification to office.
   
9 POWERS OF DIRECTORS
   
9.1 The business and affairs of the Company shall be managed by, or under the direction or supervision of, the directors of the Company. Subject to the provisions of the Memorandum, the directors of the Company have all the powers necessary for managing, and for directing and supervising, the business and affairs of the Company. The directors may exercise all such powers of the Company as are not by the Act or by the Memorandum (including, for the avoidance of doubt, the Schedule) or the Articles required to be exercised by the Shareholders.
   
9.2 Each director shall exercise his powers for a proper purpose and shall not act or agree to the Company acting in a manner that contravenes the Memorandum, the Articles or the Act. Each director, in exercising his powers or performing his duties, shall act honestly and in good faith in what the director believes to be the best interests of the Company.
   
9.3 If the Company is the wholly owned subsidiary of a parent, a director of the Company may, when exercising powers or performing duties as a director, act in a manner which he believes is in the best interests of the parent even though it may not be in the best interests of the Company.

10.1 Any one director of the Company may call a meeting of the directors by sending a written notice to each other director.
   
10.2 The directors of the Company or any committee thereof may meet at such times and in such manner and places within or outside the British Virgin Islands as the directors may determine to be necessary or desirable.
   
10.3 A director is deemed to be present at a meeting of directors if he participates by telephone or other electronic means and all directors participating in the meeting are able to hear each other.
   
10.4 A director shall be given not less than 3 days’ notice of meetings of directors, but a meeting of directors held without 3 days’ notice having been given to all directors shall be valid if all the directors entitled to vote at the meeting who do not attend waive notice of the meeting, and for this purpose the presence of a director at a meeting shall constitute waiver by that director. The inadvertent failure to give notice of a meeting to a director, or the fact that a director has not received the notice, does not invalidate the meeting.
   
10.5 A director of the company (the appointing director) may appoint any other director or any other eligible person as his alternate to exercise the appointing director’s powers and carry out the appointing director’s responsibilities in relation to the taking of decisions by the directors in the absence of the appointing director.
   
10.6 The appointment and termination of an alternate director must be in writing, and written notice of the appointment and termination must be given by the appointing director to the Company as soon as reasonably practicable.
   
10.7 An alternate director has the same rights as the appointing director in relation to any directors’ meeting and any written resolution circulated for written consent. An alternate director has no power to appoint a further alternate, whether of the appointing director or of the alternate director, and the alternate does not act as an agent of or for the appointing director.
   
10.8 The appointing director may, at any time, voluntarily terminate the alternate director’s appointment. The voluntary termination of the appointment of an alternate shall take effect from the time when written notice of the termination is given to the Company. The rights of an alternate shall automatically terminate if the appointing director dies or otherwise ceases to hold office.
   
10.9 A meeting of directors is duly constituted for all purposes if at the commencement of the meeting there are present in person or by alternate not less than one-half of the total number of directors, subject to a minimum of 2.
   
10.10 If the Company has only one director the provisions herein contained for meetings of directors do not apply and such sole director has full power to represent and act for the Company in all matters as are not by the Act, the Memorandum or the Articles required to be exercised by the Shareholders. In lieu of minutes of a meeting the sole director shall record in writing and sign a note or memorandum of all matters requiring a Resolution of Directors. Such a note or memorandum constitutes sufficient evidence of such resolution for all purposes.

 

44

 

 

10.11 The directors may appoint a director as chairman of the board of directors. At meetings of directors at which the chairman of the board of directors is present, he shall preside as chairman of the meeting. If there is no chairman of the board of directors or if the chairman of the board is not present, the directors present shall choose one of their number to be chairman of the meeting.
   
10.12 An action that may be taken by the directors or a committee of directors at a meeting may also be taken by a Resolution of Directors or a resolution of a committee of directors consented to in writing by all directors or by all members of the committee, as the case may be, without the need for any notice. The consent may be in the form of counterparts each counterpart being signed by one or more directors. If the consent is in one or more counterparts, and the counterparts bear different dates, then the resolution shall take effect on the date upon which the last director has consented to the resolution by signed counterparts.
   
11 COMMITTEES
   
11.1 The directors may, by Resolution of Directors, designate one or more committees, each consisting of one or more directors, and delegate one or more of their powers, including the power to affix the Seal, to the committee.
   
11.2 The directors have no power to delegate to a committee of directors any of the Proscribed Powers.
   
11.3 A committee of directors, where authorised by the Resolution of Directors appointing such committee or by a subsequent Resolution of Directors, may appoint a sub-committee and delegate powers exercisable by the committee to the sub-committee.
   
11.4 The meetings and proceedings of each committee of directors consisting of 2 or more directors shall be governed mutatis mutandis by the provisions of the Articles regulating the proceedings of directors so far as the same are not superseded by any provisions in the Resolution of Directors establishing the committee.

Freight Technologies cautions that the foregoing list of factors is not exclusive. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those indicated or anticipated by such forward-looking statements. Freight Technologies and Fr8App caution readers not to place undue reliance upon any forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date made.
