INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THIS FORM 6-K REPORT

 

On October 27, 2021, Siyata Mobile Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a securities purchase agreement relating to the purchase and sale of a senior secured convertible note (the “Note”) for gross proceeds of US$6,000,000 (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Lind Global Partners II, LP, an investment fund managed by The Lind Partners, a New York based institutional fund manager (together “Lind”). Proceeds are expected within ten (10) days of the execution of the Purchase Agreement, subject to customary closing conditions, and such proceeds are intended to be used to repay and terminate existing convertible notes, as well as to pay certain fees and costs associated with the transaction.

 

The Purchase Agreement provides for, among other things, the issuance of a US$7,200,000 Note with a 24-month maturity, 0% annual interest rate, and a fixed conversion price of US$10.00 per share (“Conversion Price”) of the Company’s common shares (“Common Shares”). The Company is required to make principal payments in 18 equal monthly installments commencing 180 days after funding (“Repayment”). At the discretion of the Company, the Repayments can be made in: (i) cash; (ii) Common Shares (after Common Shares are registered) (the “Repayment Shares”); or a combination of both. Repayment Shares will be priced at 90% of the average of the five lowest daily VWAPs during the 20 trading days before the issuance of the Common Shares (the “Repayment Price”). The Company will have the right to buy-back the outstanding face value of the Note at any time with no penalty (“Buy-Back Right”). Should the Company exercise its Buy-Back Right, Lind will have the option to convert up to 25% of the face value of the Note at the lesser of the Conversion Price or Repayment Price. Additionally, the Note ranks senior to other Company debt, excluding certain debt facilities, and is secured over Company assets, as more fully detailed in the Purchase Agreement and Note. Further, the Purchase Agreement provides that Lind will also receive a common shares purchase warrant to purchase up to 2,142,857 shares of the Company’s Common Shares (“Warrant”). The Warrant may be exercisable with cash payment for 60 months with an exercise price of US$4.00 per Common Share and may be exercised on a cashless basis in the event that a registration statement covering the underlying Common Shares is not deemed effective. Both the Note and the Warrant contain certain anti-dilution protection in certain circumstances. The Company is obligated to file a registration statement covering the Common Shares underlying the Note and Warrant within forty five (45) days of Closing.

 

Concurrently with the execution of the Purchase Agreement, the Company, its subsidiaries and Lind entered into certain security agreements and guarantees as more fully detailed in the Purchase Agreement.

 

The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations and warranties of the Company and Lind. In addition, the Note contains restrictive covenants and event of default provisions that are customary for transactions of this type.

 

The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Purchase Agreement were made only for purposes of such agreement and as of specific dates, were solely for the benefit of the parties to the Purchase Agreement, and may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the contracting parties. Accordingly, the Purchase Agreement is incorporated herein by reference only to provide information regarding the terms of the Purchase Agreement, and not to provide any other factual information regarding the Company or its business, and should be read in conjunction with the disclosures in the Company's periodic reports and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). The foregoing summaries of the Purchase Agreement, the Note and Warrant do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the copies of the Warrant, Purchase Agreement and Note filed herewith as Exhibits 4.1, 10.1 and 10.2, respectively.

 

Additionally, the Company issued a press release on October 27, 2021, titled “Siyata Mobile Enters into an Agreement for a US$6,000,000 Investment from The Lind Partners.” The press release is filed herewith as Exhibit 99.1

FORM OF COMMON SHARES PURCHASE WARRANT

 

Siyata Mobile Inc., a British Columbia corporation (together with any corporation which shall succeed to or assume the obligations of Siyata Mobile Inc. hereunder, the “Company”), hereby certifies that, for value received, Lind Global Fund II LP, a Delaware limited partnership (the “Holder”), is entitled, subject to the terms set forth below, to purchase from the Company at any time during the Exercise Period (as defined in Section 9) up to Two Million One Hundred Forty Two Thousand Eight Hundred Fifty Seven (2,142,857) fully paid and non-assessable Common Shares (as defined in Section 9), at a purchase price per share equal to the Exercise Price (as defined in Section 9). The number of Common Shares for which this Common Shares Purchase Warrant (this “Warrant”) is exercisable and the Exercise Price are subject to adjustment as provided herein.

 

1. DEFINITIONS. Certain terms are used in this Warrant as specifically defined in Section 9.

 

2. EXERCISE OF WARRANT.

 

2.1. Exercise. This Warrant may be exercised prior to its expiration pursuant to Section 2.5 hereof by the Holder at any time or from time to time during the Exercise Period, by submitting the form of subscription attached hereto (the “Exercise Notice”) duly executed by the Holder, to the Company at its principal office, indicating whether the Holder is electing to purchase a specified number of shares by paying the Aggregate Exercise Price as provided in Section 2.2 or is electing to exercise this Warrant as to a specified number of shares pursuant to the net exercise provisions of Section 2.3. On or before the first Trading Day following the date on which the Company has received the Exercise Notice, the Company shall transmit by electronic mail an acknowledgement of confirmation of receipt of the Exercise Notice. Subject to Section 2.4, this Warrant shall be deemed exercised for all purposes as of the close of business on the day on which the Holder has delivered the Exercise Notice to the Company. The Aggregate Exercise Price, if any, shall be paid by wire transfer to the Company within five (5) Business Days of the date of exercise and prior to the time the Company issues the certificates evidencing the shares issuable upon such exercise. In the event this Warrant is not exercised in full, the Company may, at its expense, require the Holder, after such partial exercise, to promptly return this Warrant to the Company and the Company will forthwith issue and deliver to or upon the order of the Holder a new Warrant or Warrants of like tenor, in the name of the Holder or as the Holder (upon payment by the Holder of any applicable transfer taxes) may request, calling in the aggregate on the face or faces thereof for the number of Common Shares equal (without giving effect to any adjustment therein) to the number of such shares called for on the face of this Warrant minus the number of such shares (without giving effect to any adjustment therein) for which this Warrant shall have been exercised.

 

 

2.2. Payment of Exercise Price by Wire Transfer. If the Holder elects to purchase a specified number of shares by paying the Aggregate Exercise Price, the Holder shall pay such amount by wire transfer of immediately available funds to the account designated by the Company in its acknowledgement of receipt of such Exercise Notice pursuant to Section 2.1.

 

2.3. Net Exercise. If a registration statement covering the Common Shares that are the subject of the Notice of Exercise (the “Unavailable Warrant Shares”) is not available for the resale of such Unavailable Warrant Shares to the public or upon exercise of this Warrant in connection with a Fundamental Transaction, the Holder may elect to exercise this Warrant by receiving Common Shares equal to the number of shares determined pursuant to the following formula:

 

X = Y (A - B)

A

where,

 

X =the number of Common Shares to be issued to Holder;

 

Y =the number of Common Shares as to which this Warrant is to be exercised (as indicated on the Exercise Notice);

 

A =VWAP for the Trading Day immediately preceding the date of exercise; and

 

B =the Exercise Price.

 

2.4. Antitrust Notification. If the Holder determines, in its sole judgment upon the advice of counsel, that the issuance of any Warrant Shares pursuant to the terms hereof would be subject to the provisions of the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (the “HSR Act”), the Company shall file as soon as practicable after the date on which the Company receives notice from the Holder of the applicability of the HSR Act and a request to so file with the United States Federal Trade Commission and the United States Department of Justice the notification and report form required to be filed by it pursuant to the HSR Act in connection with such issuance.

 

2.5. Termination. This Warrant shall terminate upon the earlier to occur of (i) exercise in full or (ii) the expiration of the Exercise Period.

 

3. REGISTRATION RIGHTS. The Holder of this Warrant has certain rights to require the Company to register its resale of the Warrant Shares under the Securities Act and any blue sky or securities laws of any jurisdictions within the United States at the time and in the manner specified in the Purchase Agreement.

4. DELIVERY OF STOCK CERTIFICATES ON EXERCISE.

 

4.1. Delivery of Exercise Shares. As soon as practicable after any exercise of this Warrant and in any event within one (1) Trading Days thereafter (such date, the “Exercise Share Delivery Date”), the Company shall, at its expense (including the payment by it of any applicable issue or stamp taxes), cause to be issued in the name of and delivered to the Holder, or as the Holder may direct, a certificate or certificates evidencing the number of fully paid and non-assessable Common Shares (which number shall be rounded down to the nearest whole share in the event any fractional share may otherwise be issuable upon such exercise and the Company shall pay a cash adjustment to the Holder in respect of such final fraction in an amount equal to such fraction multiplied by the Exercise Price) to which the Holder shall be entitled on such exercise, in such denominations as may be requested by the Holder, which certificate or certificates shall be free of restrictive and trading legends (except for any such legends as may be required under the Securities Act or during the Canadian Lock-Up Period pursuant to applicable Canadian Securities Laws). After the Canadian Lock-Up Period, in lieu of delivering physical certificates for the Common Shares issuable upon any exercise of this Warrant, provided the Warrant Shares are not restricted securities and the Company’s transfer agent is participating in the Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) Fast Automated Securities Transfer program or a similar program, upon request of the Holder, the Company shall cause its transfer agent to electronically transmit such Common Shares issuable upon exercise of this Warrant to the Holder (or its designee), by crediting the account of the Holder’s (or such designee’s) broker with DTC through its Deposit Withdrawal Agent Commission system (provided that the same time periods herein as for stock certificates shall apply) as instructed by the Holder (or its designee).

 

4.2. Compensation for Buy-In on Failure to Timely Deliver Exercise Shares. In addition to any other rights available to the Holder, if the Company fails to cause its transfer agent to transmit to the Holder Exercise Shares pursuant to an exercise on or before the Exercise Share Delivery Date, and if after such date the Holder is required by its broker to purchase (in an open market transaction or otherwise) or the Holder’s brokerage firm otherwise purchases, Common Shares to deliver in satisfaction of a sale by the Holder of the Exercise Shares which the Holder anticipated receiving upon such exercise (a “Buy-In”), then the Company shall (a) pay in cash to the Holder the amount, if any, by which (x) the Holder’s total purchase price (including brokerage commissions, if any) for the Common Shares so purchased exceeds (y) the amount obtained by multiplying (1) the number of Exercise Shares that the Company was required to deliver to the Holder in connection with the exercise at issue times (2) the price at which the sell order giving rise to such purchase obligation was executed, and (b) at the option of the Holder, either reinstate the portion of the Warrant and equivalent number of Exercise Shares for which such exercise was not honored (in which case such exercise shall be deemed rescinded) or deliver to the Holder the number of Common Shares that would have been issued had the Company timely complied with its exercise and delivery obligations hereunder. For example, if the Holder purchases Common Shares having a total purchase price of $11,000 to cover a Buy-In with respect to an attempted exercise of Common Shares with an aggregate sale price giving rise to such purchase obligation of $10,000, under clause (a) of the immediately preceding sentence the Company shall be required to pay the Holder $1,000. The Holder shall provide the Company written notice indicating the amounts payable to the Holder in respect of the Buy-In and evidence of the amount of such loss. Nothing herein shall limit a Holder’s right to pursue a decree of specific performance and/or injunctive relief with respect to the Company’s failure to timely deliver Common Shares upon exercise of the Warrant as required pursuant to the terms hereof.

 

-3-

 

4.3. Charges, Taxes and Expenses. Issuance of Exercise Shares shall be made without charge to the Holder for any issue or transfer tax or other incidental expense in respect of the issuance of such Exercise Shares, all of which taxes and expenses shall be paid by the Company, and such Exercise Shares shall be issued in the name of the Holder or in such name or names as may be directed by the Holder; providedhowever, that in the event Exercise Shares are to be issued in a name other than the name of the Holder, this Warrant when surrendered for exercise shall be accompanied by the Assignment Form attached hereto (the “Assignment Form”) duly executed by the Holder and the Company may require, as a condition thereto, the payment of a sum sufficient to reimburse it for any transfer tax incidental thereto.

 

5. CERTAIN ADJUSTMENT.

 

5.1. Stock Dividends and Splits. If the Company, at any time while this Warrant is outstanding: (a) pays a stock dividend or otherwise makes a distribution or distributions on Common Shares or any other equity or equity equivalent securities payable in Common Shares (which, for avoidance of doubt, shall not include any Common Shares issued by the Company upon exercise of this Warrant), (b) subdivides outstanding Common Shares into a larger number of shares, (c) combines (including by way of reverse stock split) outstanding Common Shares into a smaller number of shares, or (d) issues by reclassification of Common Shares any shares of capital stock of the Company, then in each case the Exercise Price shall be multiplied by a fraction of which the numerator shall be the number of Common Shares (excluding treasury shares, if any) outstanding immediately before such event and of which the denominator shall be the number of Common Shares outstanding immediately after such event and the number of shares issuable upon exercise of this Warrant shall be proportionately adjusted such that the aggregate Exercise Price of this Warrant shall remain unchanged. Any adjustment made pursuant to this Section 5.1 shall become effective immediately after the record date for the determination of stockholders 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.

 

5.2 Pro Rata Distributions. During such time as this Warrant is outstanding, if the Company shall declare or make any dividend or other distribution of its assets (or rights to acquire its assets) to holders of Common Shares, by way of return of capital or otherwise (including, without limitation, any distribution of cash, stock or other securities, property or options by way of a dividend, spin off, reclassification, corporate rearrangement, scheme of arrangement or other similar transaction) (a “Distribution”), at any time after the issuance of this Warrant, then, in each such case, the Holder shall be entitled to participate in such Distribution to the same extent that the Holder would have participated therein if the Holder had held the number of Common Shares acquirable upon complete exercise of this Warrant (without regard to any limitations on exercise hereof, including without limitation, the Beneficial Ownership Limitation) immediately before the date of which a record is taken for such Distribution, or, if no such record is taken, the date as of which the record holders of Common Shares are to be determined for the participation in such Distribution (provided, however, that, to the extent that the Holder's right to participate in any such Distribution would result in the Holder exceeding the beneficial ownership limitation provided for in Section 10, then the Holder shall not be entitled to participate in such Distribution to such extent (or in the beneficial ownership of any Common Shares as a result of such Distribution to such extent) and the portion of such Distribution shall be held in abeyance for the benefit of the Holder until such time, if ever, as its right thereto would not result in the Holder exceeding the beneficial ownership limitation).

 

-4-

 

5.3 Fundamental Transaction. If, at any time while this Warrant is outstanding, (a) the Company effects any merger, arrangement, amalgamation or consolidation of the Company with or into another Person, (b) the Company effects any sale of all or substantially all of its assets in one or a series of related transactions, (c) any tender offer or exchange offer (whether by the Company or another Person) is completed pursuant to which holders of Common Shares are permitted to tender or exchange their shares for other securities, cash or property, or (d) the Company effects any reclassification of the Common Shares or any compulsory share exchange pursuant to which the Common Shares are effectively converted into or exchanged for other securities, cash or property (each, a “Fundamental Transaction”), then, upon the closing of a Fundamental Transaction and payment of the exercise price therefore (including at the election of the Holder by cashless exercise), the Holder shall receive, for each Warrant Share that would have been issuable upon such exercise immediately prior to the occurrence of such Fundamental Transaction, the number of Common Shares of the successor or acquiring corporation or of the Company, if it is the surviving corporation, and any additional consideration (the “Alternate Consideration”) receivable as a result of such merger, consolidation or disposition of assets by a holder of the number of Common Shares for which this Warrant is exercisable immediately prior to such event. For purposes of any such exercise, the determination of the Exercise Price shall be appropriately adjusted to apply to such Alternate Consideration based on the amount of Alternate Consideration issuable in respect of one Common Share in such Fundamental Transaction, and the Company shall apportion the Exercise Price among the Alternate Consideration in a reasonable manner reflecting the relative value of any different components of the Alternate Consideration. If holders of Common Shares are given any choice as to the securities, cash or property to be received in a Fundamental Transaction, then the Holder shall be given the same choice as to the Alternate Consideration it receives upon exercise of this Warrant upon the closing of such Fundamental Transaction. The foregoing notwithstanding, if the Company effects any reclassification of the Common Shares or any compulsory share exchange, in each case, into another security of the Company, this Warrant shall remain outstanding and the Holder shall be entitled to receive the Alternative Consideration upon any subsequent exercise of this Warrant and the payment of the exercise price therefor. The terms of any agreement pursuant to which a Fundamental Transaction is effected shall include terms requiring any such successor or surviving entity to comply with the provisions of this Section 5.3

 

5.4 Adjustment to Exercise Price Upon Issuance of Common Shares. In the event the Company shall at any time or from time to time after the Closing Date (but whether before or after the Issue Date) issue or sell any additional Common Shares (“Additional Common Shares”), other than (A) as provided in the Note (including subsections (i) through (iv) of Section 3.4(a) of the Note), pursuant to any Equity Plan (including pursuant to Common Share Equivalents granted or issued under any Equity Plan), (B) pursuant to Common Share Equivalents (as defined in the Note) granted or issued prior to the Closing Date, (C) Exempted Securities or (D) pursuant to the terms of this Warrant or the Note, in any case, at an effective price per share that is less than the Exercise Price then in effect or without consideration, then the Exercise Price upon each such issuance shall be reduced to a price equal to the consideration per share paid for such Additional Common Shares. For purposes of clarification, the amount of consideration received for such Additional Common Shares shall not include the value of any additional securities or other rights received in connection with such issuance of Additional Common Shares (i.e., warrants, rights of first refusal or other similar rights).

 

5.5 Calculations. All calculations under this Section 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 5, the number of Common Shares deemed to be issued and outstanding as of a given date shall be the sum of the number of Common Shares (excluding treasury shares, if any) issued and outstanding at the close of the Trading Day on or, if not applicable, most recently preceding, such given date.

 

5.6 Notice to Holder.

 

(a) Adjustment to Exercise Price. Whenever the Exercise Price is adjusted pursuant to any provision of this Section 5, the Company shall promptly mail to the Holder a notice setting forth the Exercise Price after such adjustment and setting forth a brief statement of the facts requiring such adjustment.

 

-5-

 

(b) Notice to Allow Exercise by Holder. If (i) the Company shall declare a dividend (or any other distribution in whatever form) on the Common Shares; (ii) the Company shall declare a special nonrecurring cash dividend on or a redemption of the Common Shares; (iii) the Company shall authorize the granting to all holders of the Common Shares rights or warrants to subscribe for or purchase any shares of capital stock of any class or of any rights; (iv) the approval of any stockholders of the Company shall be required in connection with any reclassification of the Common Shares, any consolidation or merger to which the Company is a party, any sale or transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company, of any compulsory share exchange whereby the Common Shares are converted into other securities, cash or property; or (v) the Company shall authorize the voluntary or involuntary dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the affairs of the Company; then, in each case, the Company shall cause to be mailed to the Holder at its last address as it shall appear upon the Warrant Register of the Company, at least twenty (20) calendar days prior to the applicable record or effective date hereinafter specified, a notice stating (x) the date on which a record is to be taken for the purpose of such dividend, distribution, redemption, rights or warrants, or if a record is not to be taken, the date as of which the holders of the Common Shares of record to be entitled to such dividend, distributions, redemption, rights or warrants are to be determined or (y) the date on which such reclassification, consolidation, merger, sale, transfer or share exchange is expected to become effective or close, and the date as of which it is expected that holders of the Common Shares of record shall be entitled to exchange their Common Shares for securities, cash or other property deliverable upon such reclassification, consolidation, merger, sale, transfer or share exchange; provided that the failure to mail such notice or any defect therein or in the mailing thereof shall not affect the validity of the corporate action required to be specified in such notice. Subject to applicable law, the Holder is entitled to exercise this Warrant during the period commencing on the date of such notice to the effective date of the event triggering such notice. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the delivery of the notice described in this Section 5.6 is not intended to and shall not bestow upon the Holder any voting rights whatsoever with respect to outstanding unexercised Warrants.

 

6. NO IMPAIRMENT. The Company will not, by amendment of the Articles of Incorporation or through any reorganization, transfer of assets, consolidation, merger, dissolution, issue or sale of securities or any other voluntary action, avoid or seek to avoid the observance or performance of any of the terms of this Warrant, but will at all times in good faith assist in the carrying out of all such terms and in taking all such action as may be necessary or appropriate in order to protect the rights of the Holder against impairment. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Company (a) will not increase the par value of any Common Shares receivable on the exercise of this Warrant above the amount payable therefor on such exercise and (b) will take all such action as may be necessary or appropriate in order that the Company may validly and legally issue fully paid and non-assessable shares of stock on the exercise of this Warrant from time to time outstanding.

 

7. NOTICES OF RECORD DATE. In the event of:

 

(a) any taking by the Company of a record of the holders of any class of securities for the purpose of determining the holders thereof who are entitled to receive any dividend or other distribution, or any right to subscribe for, purchase or otherwise acquire any shares of stock of any class or any other securities or property, or to receive any other right;

 

(b) any capital reorganization of the Company, any reclassification or recapitalization of the capital stock of the Company or any transfer of all or substantially all the assets of the Company to or any consolidation or merger of the Company with or into any other Person or any other Change of Control; or

 

(c) any voluntary or involuntary dissolution, liquidation or winding-up of the Company;

 

then, and in each such event, the Company will mail or cause to be mailed to the Holder a notice specifying (i) the date on which any such record is to be taken for the purpose of such dividend, distribution or right, and stating the amount and character of such dividend, distribution or right, or (ii) the date on which any such reorganization, reclassification, recapitalization, transfer, consolidation, merger, dissolution, liquidation or winding-up is anticipated to take place, and the time, if any is to be fixed, as of which the holders of record of Common Shares shall be entitled to exchange their Common Shares for securities or other property deliverable on such reorganization, reclassification, recapitalization, transfer, consolidation, merger, dissolution, liquidation or winding-up. Such notice shall be mailed at least fifteen (15) days prior to the date specified in such notice on which any such action is to be taken.

Warrant Sharesmeans collectively the Common Shares of the Company issuable upon exercise of the Warrant in accordance with its terms, as such number may be adjusted pursuant to the provisions thereof.

 

10. LIMITATION ON BENEFICIAL OWNERSHIP. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the Holder shall not be entitled to receive Common Shares or other securities (together with Common Shares, “Equity Interests”) upon exercise of this Warrant to the extent (but only to the extent) that such exercise or receipt would cause the Holder Group to become, directly or indirectly, a “beneficial owner” (within the meaning of Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder) of a number of Equity Interests of a class that is registered under the Exchange Act which exceeds the Maximum Percentage (as defined below) of the Equity Interests of such class that are outstanding at such time. Any purported delivery of Equity Interests in connection with the exercise of the Warrant prior to the termination of this restriction in accordance herewith shall be void and have no effect to the extent (but only to the extent) that such delivery would result in the Holder Group becoming the beneficial owner of more than the Maximum Percentage of the Equity Interests of a class that is registered under the Exchange Act that is outstanding at such time. If any delivery of Equity Interests owed to the Holder following exercise of this Warrant is not made, in whole or in part, as a result of this limitation, the Company’s obligation to make such delivery shall not be extinguished and the Company shall deliver such Equity Interests as promptly as practicable after the Holder gives notice to the Company that such delivery would not result in such limitation being triggered or upon termination of the restriction in accordance with the terms hereof. To the extent limitations contained in this Section 10 apply, the determination of whether this Warrant is exercisable and of which portion of this Warrant is exercisable shall be the sole responsibility and in the sole determination of the Holder, and the submission of an Exercise Notice shall be deemed to constitute the Holder’s determination that the issuance of the full number of Warrant Shares requested in the Exercise Notice is permitted hereunder, and neither the Company nor any Warrant agent shall have any obligation to verify or confirm the accuracy of such determination. For purposes of this Section 10, (i) the term “Maximum Percentage” shall mean 4.99%; provided, that if at any time after the date hereof the Holder Group beneficially owns in excess of 4.99% of any class of Equity Interests in the Company that is registered under the Exchange Act (excluding any Equity Interests deemed beneficially owned by virtue of this Warrant or the Note), then the Maximum Percentage shall automatically increase to 9.99% so long as the Holder Group owns in excess of 4.99% of such class of Equity Interests (and shall, for the avoidance of doubt, automatically decrease to 4.99% upon the Holder Group ceasing to own in excess of 4.99% of such class of Equity Interests); and (ii) the term “Holder Group” shall mean the Holder plus any other Person with which the Holder is considered to be part of a group under Section 13 of the Exchange Act or with which the Holder otherwise files reports under Sections 13 and/or 16 of the Exchange Act. In determining the number of Equity Interests of a particular class outstanding at any point in time, the Holder may rely on the number of outstanding Equity Interests of such class as reflected in (x) the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K or Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, as the case may be, (y) a more recent public announcement by the Company or (z) a more recent notice by the Company or its transfer agent to the Holder setting forth the number of Equity Interests of such class then outstanding. For any reason at any time, upon written or oral request of the Holder, the Company shall, within one (1) Trading Day of such request, confirm orally and in writing to the Holder the number of Equity Interests of any class then outstanding. The provisions of this Section 10 shall be construed, corrected and implemented in a manner so as to effectuate the intended beneficial ownership limitation herein contained.

No course of dealing between the Company and the Holder nor any delay in exercising any rights hereunder shall operate as a waiver of any rights of the Holder.

 

17. MISCELLANEOUS. In case any provision of this Warrant shall be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, or partially invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the provision shall be enforced to the extent, if any, that it may legally be enforced and the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby.

(a) Securities may only be disposed of pursuant to an effective Registration Statement, to the Company or pursuant to an available exemption from or in a transaction not subject to the registration requirements of the 1933 Act, and in compliance with any applicable state securities laws.

 

(b) Certificates evidencing the Securities will contain the following legend, so long as is required by this Section 5.2(b) or Section 5.2(c):

 

[NEITHER THESE SECURITIES NOR THE SECURITIES ISSUABLE UPON EXERCISE OF THESE SECURITIES HAVE BEEN REGISTERED] [THESE SECURITIES HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED] WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION OR THE SECURITIES COMMISSION OF ANY STATE IN RELIANCE UPON AN EXEMPTION FROM REGISTRATION UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “SECURITIES ACT”), AND, ACCORDINGLY, MAY NOT BE OFFERED OR SOLD EXCEPT PURSUANT TO AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OR PURSUANT TO AN AVAILABLE EXEMPTION FROM, OR IN A TRANSACTION NOT SUBJECT TO, THE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS OF THE SECURITIES ACT AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS AS EVIDENCED BY A LEGAL OPINION OF COUNSEL TO THE TRANSFEROR TO SUCH EFFECT, THE SUBSTANCE OF WHICH SHALL BE REASONABLY ACCEPTABLE TO THE COMPANY. [THESE SECURITIES AND THE SECURITIES ISSUABLE UPON EXERCISE OF THESE SECURITIES] [THESE SECURITIES] MAY BE PLEDGED IN CONNECTION WITH A BONA FIDE MARGIN ACCOUNT SECURED BY SUCH SECURITIES.

 

The Company acknowledges and agrees that the Investor may from time to time pledge, and/or grant a security interest in some or all of the Securities, in accordance with applicable securities laws, pursuant to a bona fide margin agreement in connection with a bona fide margin account and, if required under the terms of such agreement or account, the Investor may transfer pledged or secured Securities to the pledgees or secured parties. Such a pledge or transfer would not be subject to approval or consent of the Company and no legal opinion of legal counsel to the pledgee, secured party or pledgor shall be required in connection with the pledge, but such legal opinion may be required in connection with a subsequent transfer following default by the Investor transferee of the pledge. No notice shall be required of such pledge. At the Company’s expense, the Company will execute and deliver such reasonable documentation as a pledgee or secured party of Securities may reasonably request in connection with a pledge or transfer of the Securities including the preparation and filing of any required prospectus supplement under Rule 424(b)(3) of the 1933 Act or other applicable provision of the 1933 Act to appropriately amend the list of selling stockholders thereunder.

(c) Certificates evidencing the Investor Shares shall not contain any legend (including the legend set forth in Section 5.2(b)): (i) while a Registration Statement covering the Investor Shares is effective under the 1933 Act, (ii) following any sale of such Investor Shares pursuant to Rule 144, (iii) while such Investor Shares are eligible for sale without restriction under Rule 144, or (iv) if such legend is not required under applicable requirements of the 1933 Act (including judicial interpretations and pronouncements issued by the Staff of the SEC). The Company shall cause its counsel to issue any legal opinion or instruction required by the Company’s transfer agent to comply with the requirements set forth in this Section. At such time as a legend is no longer required for the Investor Shares under this Section 5.2(c), the Company will, no later than three (3) Business Days following the delivery by the Investor to the Company or the Company’s transfer agent of a certificate representing Investor Shares containing a restrictive legend (such third Business Day, the “Legend Removal Date”), deliver or cause to be delivered to the Investor a certificate representing such Investor Shares that is free from all restrictive and other legends. In addition to any other remedies available to the Investor, the Company shall pay to the Investor, in cash, as partial liquidated damages and not as a penalty, for each $1,000 of Investor Shares (based on the VWAP of the Common Shares on the date such Investor Shares are submitted to the Company or the Company’s transfer agent) delivered for removal of the restrictive or other legend, $5 per Trading Day for each Trading Day after the Legend Removal Date until such Investor Shares are delivered without a legend.  The Company may not make any notation on its records or give instructions to any transfer agent of the Company that enlarge the restrictions on transfer set forth in this Section except as it may reasonably determine are necessary or appropriate to comply or to ensure compliance with those applicable laws that are enacted or modified after the Closing.

 

5.3 Furnishing of Information. As long as the Investor owns the Securities, the Company covenants to timely file (or obtain extensions in respect thereof and file within the applicable grace period) all reports required to be filed by the Company after the date hereof pursuant to the 1934 Act. As long as the Investor owns the Securities, if the Company is not required to file reports pursuant to such laws, it will prepare and furnish to the Investor and make publicly available in accordance with Rule 144(c) such information as is required for the Investor to sell the Investor Shares under Rule 144. The Company further covenants that it will take such further action as any holder of Securities may reasonably request, all to the extent required from time to time to enable such Person to sell such Investor Shares without registration under the 1933 Act within the limitation of the exemptions provided by Rule 144 or other applicable exemptions.

 

5.4 Integration. The Company shall not, and shall use its best efforts to ensure that no Affiliate of the Company shall, sell, offer for sale or solicit offers to buy or otherwise negotiate in respect of any security (as defined in Section 2 of the 1933 Act) that will be integrated with the offer or sale of the Securities in a manner that would require the registration under the 1933 Act of the sale of the Securities to the Investor, or that will be integrated with the offer or sale of the Securities for purposes of the rules and regulations of any Trading Market that would require, under the rules of the Trading Market, the Stockholder Approval.

 

5.5 Notification of Certain Events. The Company shall give prompt written notice to the Investor of (a) the occurrence or non-occurrence of any Event, the occurrence or non-occurrence of which would render any representation or warranty of the Company contained in this Agreement or any other Transaction Document, if made on or immediately following the date of such Event, untrue or inaccurate in any material respect, (b) the occurrence of any Event that, individually or in combination with any other Events, has had or could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect, (c) any failure of the Company to comply with or satisfy any covenant or agreement to be complied with or satisfied by it hereunder or any Event that would otherwise result in the nonfulfillment of any of the conditions to the Investor’s obligations hereunder, (d) any notice or other communication from any Person alleging that the consent of such Person is or may be required in connection with the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or any other Transaction Document, or (e) any Proceeding pending or, to the Company’s knowledge, threatened against a party relating to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or any other Transaction Document.

5.6 Available Stock. The Company shall at all times keep authorized and reserved and available for issuance, free of preemptive rights, such number of Common Shares as are issuable upon conversion of the Note and exercise of the Warrant at any time. If the Company determines at any time that it does not have a sufficient number of authorized Common Shares to reserve and keep available for issuance as described in this Section 5.6, the Company shall use all commercially reasonable efforts to increase the number of authorized Common Shares by seeking Stockholder Approval for the authorization of such additional shares.

 

5.7 Use of Proceeds. The Company will use the proceeds from the sale of the Note and the Warrant for the repayment of the Exisiting Debt (as defined below), and, thereafter, for general working capital purposes.

Other than as set forth on Schedule 5.7, neither the Company nor any Subsidiary has outstanding any Indebtedness (all such Indebtedness set forth on Schedule 5.7 is hereinafter referred to as the “Existing Debt”; the Existing Debt and any Indebtedness which constitutes the Working Capital Facility (as such term is defined in the Note) and satisfies all of the requirements of a Working Capital Facility set forth in the Note are collectively referred to herein as the “Permitted Indebtedness”). The Company shall not make any voluntary cash prepayments on any Indebtedness at any time while any amounts are owing under the Note other than (a) with respect to the Existing Debt, cash payments the Company is required to make pursuant to the express terms thereof existing on the date hereof and (b) with respect to the Working Capital Facility, pursuant to the express terms of the Intercreditor Agreement (as such term is defined in the Note). If the Company or any Subsidiary issues any Indebtedness other than the Permitted Indebtedness, after obtaining the written consent of the Investor pursuant to Section 1.10 of the Note, including any subordinated Indebtedness or convertible Indebtedness (other than the Note), other than Exempted Securities, then unless otherwise waived in writing by and at the discretion of the Investor, the Company will immediately utilize the proceeds of such issuance (or cause such Subsidiary to immediately utilize the proceeds of such issuance) to repay the Note. If the Company issues any Equity Interests, other than Exempted Securities, for aggregate proceeds to the Company of greater than $10,000,000, excluding offering costs or other expenses, unless otherwise waived in writing by and at the discretion of the Investor, the Company will direct 20% of such proceeds from such issuance to repay the Note. Any such repayment of the Note shall be made without premium or penalty.

 

5.9 Intercreditor Agreement. In the event that the Company or any Subsidiary incurs Indebtedness after obtaining the written consent of the Investor pursuant to Section 1.10 of the Note or issues convertible debt securities to a seller as partial consideration paid to such seller in connection with an Acquisition, unless otherwise waived in writing by the Investor, as a condition to consummation of such Acquisition, the holder of such Indebtedness or convertible debt securities shall enter into an intercreditor agreement with the Company and the Investor on terms reasonably satisfactory to the Investor.

31

9.3 Indemnification.

 

(a) Indemnification by the Company. The Company will indemnify and hold harmless the Investor Parties, from and against any Losses to which they may become subject under the 1933 Act or otherwise, arising out of, relating to or based upon: (i) any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of any material fact contained in any Registration Statement, any preliminary prospectus, final Prospectus or other document, including any blue sky application (as defined below), or any amendment or supplement thereof or any omission or alleged omission of a material fact required to be stated therein or, in the case of the Registration Statement, necessary to make the statements therein not misleading or, in the case of any preliminary prospectus, final Prospectus or other document, necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances in which they were made, not misleading; (ii) any blue sky application or other document executed by the Company specifically for that purpose or based upon written information furnished by the Company filed in any state or other jurisdiction in order to qualify any or all of the Investor Shares under the securities laws thereof (any such application, document or information herein called a “Blue Sky Application”); (iii) any violation or alleged violation by the Company or its agents of the 1933 Act, the 1934 Act or any similar federal or state law or any rule or regulation promulgated thereunder applicable to the Company or its agents and relating to any action or inaction required of the Company in connection with the registration or the offer or sale of the Investor Shares pursuant to any Registration Statement; or (iv) any failure to register or qualify the Investor Shares included in any such Registration Statement in any state where the Company or its agents has affirmatively undertaken or agreed in writing that the Company will undertake such registration or qualification on the Investor’s behalf and will reimburse the indemnified Investor Parties for any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by them in connection with investigating, preparing or defending any such Losses; provided, however, that the Company will not be liable in any such case if and to the extent, but only to the extent, that any such Losses arise out of or are based upon an untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission so made in conformity with information furnished by the Investor or any such controlling Person in writing specifically for use in such Registration Statement or Prospectus.

 

(b) Conduct of Indemnification Proceedings. Any Person entitled to indemnification hereunder shall (i) give prompt notice to the indemnifying party of any claim, action, suit or proceeding with respect to which it seeks indemnification following such Person’s receipt of, or such Person otherwise becoming aware of, the commencement of such claim, action, suit or proceeding and (ii) permit such indemnifying party to assume the defense of such claim, action, suit or proceeding with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the indemnified party; provided, however, that any Person entitled to indemnification hereunder shall have the right to employ separate counsel and to participate in the defense of such claim, but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be at the expense of such Person unless (A) the indemnifying party has agreed to pay such fees or expenses, (B) the indemnifying party shall have failed to assume the defense of such claim and employ counsel reasonably satisfactory to such Person or (C) in the reasonable judgment of any such Person, based upon written advice of its counsel, a conflict of interest exists between such Person and the indemnifying party with respect to such claims (in which case, if the Person notifies the indemnifying party in writing that such Person elects to employ separate counsel at the expense of the indemnifying party, the indemnifying party shall not have the right to assume the defense of such claim on behalf of such Person); and provided, further, that the failure or delay of any indemnified party to give notice as provided herein shall not relieve the indemnifying party of its obligations hereunder, except to the extent that such failure or delay to give notice shall materially adversely affect the indemnifying party in the defense of any such claim or litigation. It is understood that the indemnifying party shall not, in connection with any proceeding in the same jurisdiction, be liable for fees or expenses of more than one separate firm of attorneys at any time for all such indemnified parties. No indemnifying party will, except with the consent of the indemnified party, consent to entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement that does not include as an unconditional term thereof the giving by the claimant or plaintiff to such indemnified party of a release from all liability in respect of such claim or litigation.

 

32 

 

 

(c) Contribution. If for any reason the indemnification provided for in the preceding paragraph (a) is unavailable to an indemnified party or insufficient to hold it harmless, other than as expressly specified therein, the indemnifying party shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by the indemnified party as a result of such Losses in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the indemnified party and the indemnifying party, as well as any other relevant equitable considerations. No Person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the 1933 Act shall be entitled to contribution from any Person not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation. The indemnity and contribution agreements contained in this Section are in addition to any other rights or remedies that any indemnified party may have under applicable law, by separate agreement or otherwise.

 

10. RIGHTS TO FUTURE SHARE ISSUANCES. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Section 10 and applicable securities laws, if at any time prior to the first anniversary of the Closing, the Company proposes to offer or sell any New Securities, the Company shall first offer the Investor the opportunity to purchase up to ten percent (10%) of such New Securities. The Investor shall be entitled to apportion the right of first offer hereby granted to it in such proportions as it deems appropriate among itself and its Affiliates.

 

10.1 The Company shall give notice (the “Offer Notice”) to the Investor, stating (a) its bona fide intention to offer such New Securities, (b) the number of such New Securities to be offered, and (c) the price and terms, if any, upon which it proposes to offer such New Securities.

 

10.2 By notification to the Company within ten (10) days after the Offer Notice is given, the Investor may elect to purchase or otherwise acquire, at the price and on the terms specified in the Offer Notice, up to ten percent (10%) of such New Securities. The closing of any sale pursuant to this Section 10 shall occur within the later of ninety (90) days of the date that the Offer Notice is given and the date of initial sale of New Securities pursuant to Section 10.3.

 

10.3 The Company may, during the ninety (90) day period following the expiration of the period provided in Section 10.2, offer and sell the remaining portion of such New Securities to any Person or Persons at a price not less than, and upon terms no more favorable to the offeree than, those specified in the Offer Notice. If the Company does not enter into an agreement for the sale of the New Securities within such period, or if such agreement is not consummated within thirty (30) days of the execution thereof, the right provided hereunder shall be deemed to be revived and such New Securities shall not be offered unless first reoffered to the Investors in accordance with this Section 10.

 

33 

 

 

10.4 The right of first offer in this Section 10 shall not be applicable to Exempted Securities, or any New Securities registered for sale under the 1933 Act.

11.6 WAIVER OF RIGHT TO JURY TRIAL. THE COMPANY AND THE INVESTOR HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVE, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY AND ALL RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE OTHER TRANSACTION DOCUMENTS.

No waiver of any default with respect to any provision, condition or requirement of this Agreement shall be deemed to be a continuing waiver in the future or a waiver of any subsequent default or a waiver of any other provision, condition or requirement hereof, nor shall any delay or omission of either party to exercise any right hereunder in any manner impair the exercise of any such right.

Note No. 10-27-2021-NoteL1 $7,200,000.00

Dated: October 26, 2021 (the “Issuance Date”)

 

For value received, SIYATA MOBILE INC., a British Columbia corporation (the “Maker” or the “Company”), hereby promises to pay to the order of Lind Global Fund II LP, a Delaware limited partnership (together with its successors and representatives, the “Holder”), in accordance with the terms hereinafter provided, the principal amount of Seven Million Two Hundred Thousand Dollars ($7,200,000.00); provided, however, that if the Maker elects to pre-pay the entire Outstanding Principal Amount hereunder prior to the day that is the six (6) month anniversary of the issuance date (the “Advance Payment”), the principal amount shall be reduced to Seven Million Dollars $7,000,000 (in either case, any such amount, the “Principal Amount”); provided further, however, that if the Company fails to timely file (or obtain extensions in respect thereof and file within the applicable grace period) all reports required to be filed by the Company after the date hereof pursuant to the 1934 Act in accordance with Section 5.3 in the Purchase Agreement (as defined below), or any reports required to be filed by the Company after the date hereof pursuant to Canadian Securities Laws, the then Outstanding Principal Amount shall be increased by twenty percent (20%). If at any time this Note is outstanding, the Maker enters into an agreement, including, but not limited to, an agreement with GemCap Solutions, LLC, with respect to a working capital or factoring facility in which the Maker incurs Indebtedness thereunder in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed $5,000,000 and, in connection therewith, is obligated to grant a security interest in the Maker’s accounts receivable and/or inventory (the “Working Capital Facility”), the Holder will consent to its security interest being granted pursuant to the Security Documents on such accounts receivable and/or inventory being used to secure the Working Capital Facility (such accounts receivable and/or inventory being referred to as the "Joint Collateral") to be a second lien on such Joint Collateral so long such Working Capital Facility is in place pursuant to the terms of an intercreditor agreement among the Holder, the Maker and such other Person providing the Working Capital Facility which is acceptable to the Holder and, in exchange, in either case, the Principal Amount shall be increased by Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($500,000.00).

 

 

 

All payments under or pursuant to this Senior Secured Convertible Promissory Note (this “Note”) shall be made in United States Dollars in immediately available funds to the Holder at the address of the Holder set forth in the Purchase Agreement (as hereinafter defined) or at such other place as the Holder may designate from time to time in writing to the Maker or by wire transfer of funds to the Holder’s account, instructions for which are attached hereto as Exhibit A. The outstanding principal balance of this Note shall be due and payable on October 26, 2023 (the “Maturity Date”) or at such earlier time as provided herein; provided, that the Holder, in its sole discretion, may extend the Maturity Date to any date after the original Maturity Date. In the event that the Maturity Date shall fall on Saturday or Sunday, such Maturity Date shall be the next succeeding Business Day. All calculations made pursuant to this Note shall be rounded down to three decimal places.

 

ARTICLE 1

 

1.1 Purchase Agreement. This Note has been executed and delivered pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement, dated as of October 26, 2021 (as the same may be amended from time to time, the “Purchase Agreement”), by and between the Maker and the Holder. Capitalized terms used and not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings set forth for such terms in the Purchase Agreement.

 

1.2 Interest. Except as set forth in Section 2.2, this Note shall not bear interest.

 

1.3 Principal Installment Payments. Unless the Advance Payment has been made, commencing on the day that is the six (6) month anniversary of the Issuance Date, the Maker shall pay to the Holder the Outstanding Principal Amount hereunder in monthly installments, on such date and each one (1) month anniversary thereof, (each, a “Payment Date”), of 1/18th of the Principal Amount (the “Monthly Payments”), subject to Section 3.1 (a) of this Agreement, until the Principal Amount has been paid in full prior to or on the Maturity Date or, if earlier, upon acceleration, conversion or redemption of this Note in accordance with the terms herein. The Monthly Payments shall, at the Maker’s option, be made in (i) cash (ii) Repayment Shares, or (iii) a combination of cash and Repayment Shares; provided that the number of Repayment Shares shall be determined by dividing the Principal Amount plus accrued interest (if any) being paid in Common Shares at the Repayment Share Price; provided, however, that no portion of the Principal Amount may be paid in Repayment Shares unless (A) such Repayment Shares may be immediately resold under Rule 144 without restriction on the number of shares to be sold or manner of sale, or (B) registered for resale under the 1933 Act. The Company must provide advance written notice to the Holder of whether it will elect to pay a Monthly Payment in cash, Repayment Shares or a combination thereof as follows: (i) with respect to the first Monthly Payment, at least thirty (30) days before the Payment Date, and (ii) with respect to each Monthly Payment thereafter, within three (3) Business Days of the prior Payment Date; provided, however, that if no such notice is provided within the timeframes set forth above, such Monthly Payments shall be made in Repayment Shares.

 

1

 

1.4 Prepayment. At any time after the Issuance Date, the Maker may repay all (but not less than all) of the Outstanding Principal Amount upon at least ten (10) days’ written notice of the Holder (the “Prepayment Notice”). If the Maker elects to prepay this Note pursuant to the provisions of this Section 1.5, the Holder shall have the right, upon written notice to the Maker (a “Prepayment Conversion Notice”) within five (5) Business Days of the Holder’s receipt of a Prepayment Notice, to convert up to twenty-five percent (25%) of the Principal Amount (the “Maximum Amount”) at the lesser of the Repayment Share Price or the Conversion Price (each as defined below), in accordance with the provisions of Article 3, specifying the Principal Amount (up to the Maximum Amount) that the Holder will convert. Upon delivery of a Prepayment Notice, the Maker irrevocably and unconditionally agrees to, within five (5) Business Days of receiving a Prepayment Conversion Notice, and if no Prepayment Conversion Notice is received, within ten (10) Business Days of delivery of a Prepayment Notice: (i) repay the Outstanding Principal Amount minus the Principal Amount set forth in the Prepayment Conversion Notice and (ii) issue the applicable Conversion Shares to the Holder in accordance with Article 3. The foregoing notwithstanding, the Maker may not deliver a Prepayment Notice with respect to any Outstanding Principal Amount that is subject to a Conversion Notice delivered by the Holder in accordance with Article 3.

 

1.5 Delisting from a Trading Market. If at any time the Common Shares cease to be listed on a Trading Market, (i) the Holder may deliver a demand for payment to the Company and, if such a demand is delivered, the Company shall, within ten (10) Business Days following receipt of the demand for payment from the Holder, pay all of the Outstanding Principal Amount or (ii) the Holder may, at its election, after the six-month anniversary of the Issuance Date or earlier if a Registration Statement covering the Conversion Shares has been declared effective, upon notice to the Company in accordance with Section 5.1, convert all or a portion of the Outstanding Principal Amount and the Conversion Price shall be adjusted to the lower of (A) the then-current Conversion Price and (B) eighty percent (80%) of the average of the three (3) lowest daily VWAPs during the twenty (20) Trading Days prior to delivery by the Holder of its notice of conversion pursuant to this Section 1.5.

 

1.6 Payment on Non-Business Days. Whenever any payment to be made shall be due on a day which is not a Business Day, such payment may be due on the next succeeding Business Day.

 

1.7 Transfer. This Note may be transferred or sold, subject to the provisions of Section 5.8 of this Note, or pledged, hypothecated or otherwise granted as security by the Holder.

 

1.8 Replacement. Upon receipt of a duly executed and notarized written statement from the Holder with respect to the loss, theft or destruction of this Note (or any replacement hereof), or, in the case of a mutilation of this Note, upon surrender and cancellation of such Note, the Maker shall issue a new Note, of like tenor and amount, in lieu of such lost, stolen, destroyed or mutilated Note.

 

2

 

1.9 Use of Proceeds. The Maker shall use the proceeds of this Note as set forth in the Purchase Agreement.

 

1.10 Status of Note and Security Interest. The Maker shall not, and shall not permit any of its Subsidiaries to incur, Indebtedness other than Permitted Indebtedness without the prior written consent of the Holder. So long as the Indebtedness under the Working Capital Facility continues to constitute Permitted Indebtedness, the security interest of the Holder and the obligations of the Maker under this Note relating thereto shall be junior and expressly made subject and subordinate to the security interest held by the lender under the Working Capital Facility (the “Working Capital Lender”). The payment obligations of the Maker hereunder shall be pari passu in respect of all payment obligations owing to the Working Capital Lender under the Working Capital Facility as well as any other holder of Permitted Indebtedness and shall be senior to all equity of the Maker. In addition, in the event that the Maker or any Subsidiary shall enter into any Working Capital Facility prior to the Maturity Date, the Maker, such Subsidiary, the Holder and the Working Capital Lender shall execute and deliver an intercreditor agreement among such parties, in form and substance acceptable to the Holder and such lender evidencing the priority of each party's security interest (if any) (the “Intercreditor Agreement”), with all related legal and documentation costs to be paid by the Maker. Upon any Liquidation Event (as hereinafter defined), the Holder will be entitled to receive, before any distribution or payment is made upon, or set apart with respect to, any Indebtedness of the Maker, any Subsidiary or any class of capital stock of the Maker or such Subsidiary, (other than to the Working Capital Lender (if applicable) pursuant to the express terms of the Intercreditor Agreement), an amount equal to the Outstanding Principal Amount plus all accrued interest thereon (if any). For purposes of this Note, “Liquidation Event” means a liquidation pursuant to a filing of a petition for bankruptcy under applicable law or any other insolvency or debtor’s relief, an assignment for the benefit of creditors, or a voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the affairs of the Maker or any Subsidiary thereof.

 

1.11 Secured Note. The full amount of this Note is secured by the Collateral (as defined in the respective Security Documents) identified and described as security therefor in the Security Documents.

 

1.12 Taxes.

 

1.12.1 All payments by the Maker to the Holder hereunder will be made free and clear of and without deduction for any and all present or future taxes in respect of such payments and any deemed payments under applicable laws in respect of this Note. If any taxes are required by law to be deducted by the Maker from or in respect of any amounts payable to the Holder hereunder (i) the sum payable by the Maker will be increased as necessary so that, after making all required deductions for such Taxes (including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 1.12), the Holder will receive an amount equal to the sum it would have received if such deduction had not been made; (ii) the Maker will make such deductions; and (iii) the Maker will pay the full amount deducted to the relevant taxing authority in accordance with applicable law and if the Holder so requires, the Maker will promptly furnish to the Holder such written proof of payment.

 

3

 

1.12.2 If the Maker fails to pay any Taxes when due to the appropriate taxing authority or fails to increase the sum payable as prescribed in Section 1.12.1, the Maker will indemnify the Holder for any incremental taxes, interest or penalties that may become payable by the Holder as a result of any such failure. This Section 1.12 shall survive the termination of this Note and the payment of the Principal Amount and all other obligations payable herein.

ARTICLE 3

 

3.1 Conversion.

 

(a) Conversion. At any time following the date that is the earlier of (i) the date that is the six (6) month anniversary of the Issuance Date or (ii) the date of effectiveness of a Registration Statement covering the applicable Conversion Shares (as set forth in the Purchase Agreement), this Note shall be convertible (in whole or in part), at the option of the Holder, into such number of fully paid and non-assessable Common Shares as is determined by dividing (x) that portion of the Outstanding Principal Amount that the Holder elects to convert (the “Conversion Amount”) by (y) the Conversion Price then in effect on the date on which the Holder delivers a notice of conversion, in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit B (the “Conversion Notice”), in accordance with Section 5.1, to the Maker. The Holder shall deliver this Note to the Maker at the address designated in the Purchase Agreement at such time that this Note is fully converted. With respect to partial conversions of this Note, the Maker shall keep written records of the amount of this Note converted as of the date of such conversion (each, a “Conversion Date”). Any amounts of the Outstanding Principal Amount converted hereunder shall be credited to the next scheduled Monthly Payment, or if any amount of the Outstanding Principal Amount converted hereunder exceeds the next scheduled Monthly Payment, future Monthly Payments shall be credited, as applicable.

 

7

 

(b) Conversion Price. The “Conversion Price” means $10.00, and shall be subject to adjustment as provided herein.

 

3.2 Delivery of Conversion Shares. As soon as practicable after any conversion in accordance with this Note and in any event within two (2) Trading Days thereafter (such date, the “Share Delivery Date”), the Maker shall, at its expense, cause to be issued in the name of and delivered to the Holder, or as the Holder may direct, a certificate or certificates evidencing the number of fully paid and non-assessable Common Shares to which the Holder shall be entitled on such conversion (the “Conversion Shares”), in such denominations as may be requested by the Holder, which certificate or certificates shall be free of restrictive and trading legends (except for any such legends as may be required under the 1933 Act) or, during the Canadian Lock-Up Period, any legends required under Canadian Securities Laws). After the Canadian Lock-Up Period, in lieu of delivering physical certificates for the Common Shares issuable upon any conversion of this Note, provided the Company’s transfer agent is participating in the Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) Fast Automated Securities Transfer program or a similar program, upon request of the Holder, the Company shall cause its transfer agent to electronically transmit such Common Shares issuable upon conversion of this Note to the Holder (or its designee), by crediting the account of the Holder’s (or such designee’s) broker with DTC through its Deposit Withdrawal Agent Commission system (provided that the same time periods herein as for stock certificates shall apply) as instructed by the Holder (or its designee).

 

3.3 Ownership Cap. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the Holder shall not be entitled to receive shares representing Equity Interests upon conversion of this Note to the extent (but only to the extent) that such exercise or receipt would cause the Holder Group (as defined below) to become, directly or indirectly, a “beneficial owner” (within the meaning of Section 13(d) of the 1934 Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder) of a number of Equity Interests of a class that is registered under the 1934 Act which exceeds the Maximum Percentage (as defined below) of the Equity Interests of such class that are outstanding at such time. Any purported delivery of Equity Interests in connection with the conversion of this Note prior to the termination of this restriction in accordance herewith shall be void and have no effect to the extent (but only to the extent) that such delivery would result in the Holder Group becoming the beneficial owner of more than the Maximum Percentage of the Equity Interests of a class that is registered under the 1934 Act that is outstanding at such time. If any delivery of Equity Interests owed to the Holder following conversion of this Note is not made, in whole or in part, as a result of this limitation, the Company’s obligation to make such delivery shall not be extinguished and the Company shall deliver such Equity Interests as promptly as practicable after the Holder gives notice to the Company that such delivery would not result in such limitation being triggered or upon termination of the restriction in accordance with the terms hereof. To the extent limitations contained in this Section 3.3 apply, the determination of whether this Note is convertible and of which portion of this Note is convertible shall be the sole responsibility and in the sole determination of the Holder, and the submission of a notice of conversion shall be deemed to constitute the Holder’s determination that the issuance of the full number of Conversion Shares requested in the notice of conversion is permitted hereunder, and the Company shall not have any obligation to verify or confirm the accuracy of such determination. For purposes of this Section 3.3, (i) the term “Maximum Percentage” shall mean 4.99%; provided, that if at any time after the date hereof the Holder Group beneficially owns in excess of 4.99% of any class of Equity Interests in the Company that is registered under the 1934 Act, then the Maximum Percentage shall automatically increase to 9.99% so long as the Holder Group owns in excess of 4.99% of such class of Equity Interests (and shall, for the avoidance of doubt, automatically decrease to 4.99% upon the Holder Group ceasing to own in excess of 4.99% of such class of Equity Interests); and (ii) the term “Holder Group” shall mean the Holder plus any other Person with which the Holder is considered to be part of a group under Section 13 of the 1934 Act or with which the Holder otherwise files reports under Sections 13 and/or 16 of the 1934 Act. In determining the number of Equity Interests of a particular class outstanding at any point in time, the Holder may rely on the number of outstanding Equity Interests of such class as reflected in (x) the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K or Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, as the case may be, (y) a more recent public announcement by the Company or (z) a more recent notice by the Company or its transfer agent to the Holder setting forth the number of Equity Interests of such class then outstanding. For any reason at any time, upon written or oral request of the Holder, the Company shall, within one (1) Business Day of such request, confirm orally and in writing to the Holder the number of Equity Interests of any class then outstanding. The provisions of this Section 3.3 shall be construed, corrected and implemented in a manner so as to effectuate the intended beneficial ownership limitation herein contained.

3.4 Adjustment of Conversion Price.

 

(a) Until the Note has been paid in full or converted in full, the Conversion Price shall be subject to adjustment from time to time as follows (but shall not be increased, other than pursuant to Section 3.4(a)(i) hereof):

 

(i) Adjustments for Stock Splits and Combinations. If the Maker shall at any time or from time to time after the Closing Date (but whether before or after the Issuance Date) effect a split of the outstanding Common Shares, the applicable Conversion Price in effect immediately prior to the stock split shall be proportionately decreased. If the Maker shall at any time or from time to time after the Closing Date (but whether before or after the Issuance Date), combine the outstanding Common Shares, the applicable Conversion Price in effect immediately prior to the combination shall be proportionately increased. Any adjustments under this Section 3.4(a)(i) shall be effective at the close of business on the date the stock split or combination occurs.

 

(ii) Adjustments for Certain Dividends and Distributions. If the Maker shall at any time or from time to time after the Closing Date (but whether before or after the Issuance Date) make or issue or set a record date for the determination of holders of Common Shares entitled to receive a dividend or other distribution payable in Common Shares, then, and in each event, the applicable Conversion Price in effect immediately prior to such event shall be decreased as of the time of such issuance or, in the event such 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:

 

(1) the numerator of which shall be the total number of Common Shares issued and outstanding immediately prior to the time of such issuance or the close of business on such record date; and

 

9

 

2) the denominator of which shall be the total number of Common 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 Common Shares issuable in payment of such dividend or distribution.

 

(iii) Adjustment for Other Dividends and Distributions. If the Maker shall at any time or from time to time after the Closing Date (but whether before or after the Issuance Date) make or issue or set a record date for the determination of holders of Common Shares entitled to receive a dividend or other distribution payable in other than Common Shares, then, and in each event, an appropriate revision to the applicable Conversion Price shall be made and provision shall be made (by adjustments of the Conversion Price or otherwise) so that the Holder of this Note shall receive upon conversions thereof, in addition to the number of Common Shares receivable thereon, the number of securities of the Maker or other issuer (as applicable) or other property that it would have received had this Note been converted into Common Shares in full (without regard to any conversion limitations herein) on the date of such event and had thereafter, during the period from the date of such event to and including the Conversion Date, retained such securities (together with any distributions payable thereon during such period) or assets, giving application to all adjustments called for during such period under this Section 3.4(a)(iii) with respect to the rights of the holders of this Note; provided, however, that 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 Conversion Price shall be adjusted pursuant to this paragraph as of the time of actual payment of such dividends or distributions.

 

(iv) Adjustments for Reclassification, Exchange or Substitution. If the Common Shares at any time or from time to time after the Closing Date (but whether before or after the Issuance Date) shall be changed to the same or different number of shares or other securities of any class or classes of stock or other property, whether by reclassification, exchange, substitution or otherwise (other than by way of a stock split or combination of shares or stock dividends provided for in Sections 3.4(a)(i), (ii) and (iii) hereof, or a reorganization, merger, consolidation, or sale of assets provided for in Section 3.4(a)(v) hereof), then, and in each event, an appropriate revision to the Conversion Price shall be made and provisions shall be made (by adjustments of the Conversion Price or otherwise) so that the Holder shall have the right thereafter to convert this Note into the kind and amount of shares of stock or other securities or other property receivable upon reclassification, exchange, substitution or other change, by holders of the number of Common Shares into which such Note might have been converted immediately prior to such reclassification, exchange, substitution or other change, all subject to further adjustment as provided herein.

 

(v) Adjustments for Issuance of Additional Common Shares. In the event the Maker shall at any time or from time to time after the Closing Date (but whether before or after the Issuance Date) issue or sell any additional Common Shares (“Additional Common Shares”), other than (A) as provided in this Note (including the foregoing subsections (i) through (iv) of this Section 3.4(a)), pursuant to any Equity Plan (including pursuant to Common Share Equivalents granted or issued under any Equity Plan), (B) pursuant to Common Share Equivalents (as defined below) granted or issued prior to the Closing Date, (C) Exempted Securities, or (D) pursuant to the terms of this Note, in any case, at an effective price per share that is less than the Conversion Price then in effect or without consideration, then the Conversion Price upon each such issuance shall be reduced to a price equal to the consideration per share paid for such Additional Common Shares. For purposes of clarification, the amount of consideration received for such Additional Common Shares shall not include the value of any additional securities or other rights received in connection with such issuance of Additional Common Shares (i.e. warrants, rights of first refusal or other similar rights).

 

10

 

vi) Issuance, Amendment or Adjustment of Common Share Equivalents. Except for Exempted Securities, if (x) the Maker, at any time after the Closing Date (but whether before or after the Issuance Date), shall issue any securities convertible into or exercisable or exchangeable for, directly or indirectly, Common Shares (“Convertible Securities”), or any rights or warrants or options to purchase any such Common Shares or Convertible Securities, other than Common Share Equivalents granted or issued under any Equity Plan (collectively with the Convertible Securities, the “Common Share Equivalents”) and the price per share for which Common Shares may be issuable pursuant to any such Common Share Equivalent shall be less than the applicable Conversion Price then in effect, or (y) the price per share for which Common Shares may be issuable under any Common Share Equivalents is amended or adjusted, pursuant to the terms of such Common Share Equivalents or otherwise, and such price as so amended or adjusted shall be less than the applicable Conversion Price in effect at the time of such amendment or adjustment, then, in each such case (x) or (y), the applicable Conversion Price upon each such issuance or amendment or adjustment shall be adjusted as provided in subsection (vi) of this Section 3.4(a) as if the maximum number of Common Shares issuable upon conversion, exercise or exchange of such Common Share Equivalents had been issued on the date of such issuance or amendment or adjustment.

 

(vii) Consideration for Stock. In case any Common Shares or any Common Share Equivalents shall be issued or sold:

 

(1) in connection with any merger or consolidation in which the Maker is the surviving corporation (other than any consolidation or merger in which the previously outstanding Common Shares of the Maker shall be changed to or exchanged for the stock or other securities of another corporation), the amount of consideration therefor shall be deemed to be the fair value, as determined reasonably and in good faith by the Board of Directors of the Maker and approved by the Holder, of such portion of the assets and business of the nonsurviving corporation as such Board of Directors may determine to be attributable to such Common Shares, Convertible Securities, rights or warrants or options, as the case may be; or

 

(2) in the event of any consolidation or merger of the Maker in which the Maker is not the surviving corporation or in which the previously outstanding Common Shares of the Maker shall be changed into or exchanged for the stock or other securities of another corporation or other property, or in the event of any sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the Maker for stock or other securities or other property of any corporation, the Maker shall be deemed to have issued Common Shares, at a price per share equal to the valuation of the Maker’s Common Shares based on the actual exchange ratio on which the transaction was predicated, as applicable, and the fair market value on the date of such transaction of all such stock or securities or other property of the other corporation. If any such calculation results in adjustment of the applicable Conversion Price, or the number of Common Shares issuable upon conversion of the Note, the determination of the applicable Conversion Price or the number of Common Shares issuable upon conversion of the Note immediately prior to such merger, consolidation or sale shall be made after giving effect to such adjustment of the number of Common Shares issuable upon conversion of the Note. In the event Common Shares are issued with other shares or securities or other assets of the Maker for consideration which covers both, the consideration computed as provided in this Section 3.4(a)(vii) shall be allocated among such securities and assets as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors of the Maker, and approved by the Holder.

 

11

 

viii) Record Date. In case the Maker shall take record of the holders of its Common Shares for the purpose of entitling them to subscribe for or purchase Common Shares or Convertible Securities, then the date of the issue or sale of the Common Shares shall be deemed to be such record date.

 

(b) No Impairment. The Maker shall not, by amendment of its notice of articles or articles or through any reorganization, transfer of assets, consolidation, merger, dissolution, issue or sale of securities or any other voluntary action, avoid or seek to avoid the observance or performance of any of the terms to be observed or performed hereunder by the Maker, but will at all times in good faith assist in the carrying out of all the provisions of this Section 3.4 and in the taking of all such action as may be necessary or appropriate in order to protect the conversion rights of the Holder against impairment. In the event the Holder shall elect to convert this Note as provided herein, the Maker cannot refuse conversion based on any claim that the Holder or anyone associated or affiliated with the Holder has been engaged in any violation of law, violation of an agreement to which the Holder is a party or for any reason whatsoever, unless, an injunction from a court, or notice, restraining and or adjoining conversion of this Note shall have issued and the Maker posts a surety bond for the benefit of the Holder in an amount equal to one hundred fifty percent (150%) of the Principal Amount of the Note the Holder has elected to convert, which bond shall remain in effect until the completion of arbitration/litigation of the dispute and the proceeds of which shall be payable to the Holder (as liquidated damages) in the event it obtains judgment.

 

(c) Certificates as to Adjustments. Upon occurrence of each adjustment or readjustment of the Conversion Price or number of Common Shares issuable upon conversion of this Note pursuant to this Section 3.4, the Maker at its expense shall promptly compute such adjustment or readjustment in accordance with the terms hereof and furnish to the Holder a certificate setting forth such adjustment and readjustment, showing in detail the facts upon which such adjustment or readjustment is based. The Maker shall, upon written request of the Holder, at any time, furnish or cause to be furnished to the Holder a like certificate setting forth such adjustments and readjustments, the applicable Conversion Price in effect at the time, and the number of Common Shares and the amount, if any, of other securities or property which at the time would be received upon the conversion of this Note. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Maker shall not be obligated to deliver a certificate unless such certificate would reflect an increase or decrease of at least one percent (1%) of such adjusted amount.

 

12

 

d) Taxes. The Maker shall pay any and all taxes, including any Canadian or U.S. federal, provincial, state or local tax obligations relating to the rights of payment and conversion set out herein, including any obligation of the Maker to withhold and remit to any taxing authority any portion of the monies payable or deemed to have been paid to the Holder under this Section 3.4(d) hereunder; provided, however, that the Maker shall not be obligated to pay any taxes that are stamp or property in nature, or additional withholding taxes applicable on any transfer to third parties resulting from any transfer requested by the Holder in connection with any such conversion.

 

(e) Fractional Shares. No fractional Common Shares shall be issued upon conversion of this Note. In lieu of any fractional shares to which the Holder would otherwise be entitled, the Maker shall pay cash equal such fractional shares multiplied by the Conversion Price then in effect.

 

(f) Reservation of Common Shares. The Maker shall at all times while this Note shall be outstanding, reserve and keep available out of its authorized but unissued Common Shares, such number of Common Shares as shall from time to time be sufficient to effect the conversion of this Note (disregarding for this purpose any and all limitations of any kind on such conversion). The Maker shall, from time to time, increase the authorized number of Common Shares or take other effective action if at any time the unissued number of authorized shares shall not be sufficient to satisfy the Maker’s obligations under this Section 3.4(f).

 

(g) Regulatory Compliance. If any Common Shares to be reserved for the purpose of conversion of this Note require registration or listing with or approval of any governmental authority, stock exchange or other regulatory body under any federal or state law or regulation or otherwise before such shares may be validly issued or delivered upon conversion, the Maker shall, at its sole cost and expense, in good faith and as expeditiously as possible, secure such registration, listing or approval, as the case may be.

 

(h) Effect of Events Prior to the Issuance Date. If the Issuance Date of this Note is after the Closing Date, then, if the Conversion Price or any other right of the Holder of this Note would have been adjusted or modified by operation of any provision of this Note had this Note been issued on the Closing Date, such adjustment or modification shall be deemed to apply to this Note as of the Issuance Date as if this Note had been issued on the Closing Date.

 

3.5 Prepayment Following a Change of Control.

 

(a) Mechanics of Prepayment at Option of Holder in Connection with a Change of Control. No sooner than fifteen (15) days prior to entry into an agreement for a Change of Control under subsection (c) and (d) of that definition contained in the Purchase Agreement, nor later than ten (10) days prior to the consummation of such Change of Control, but not prior to the public announcement of such Change of Control, the Maker shall deliver written notice (“Notice of Change of Control”) to the Holder. At any time after receipt of a Notice of Change of Control (or, in the event a Notice of Change of Control is not delivered at least ten (10) days prior to a Change of Control, at any time within ten (10) days prior to a Change of Control), the Holder may require the Maker to prepay, effective immediately prior to the consummation of such Change of Control, an amount equal to 105% of the Outstanding Principal Amount (the “COC Repayment Price”), by delivering written notice thereof (“Notice of Prepayment at Option of Holder Upon Change of Control”) to the Maker.

 

13

 

(b) Payment of COC Repayment Price. Upon the Maker’s receipt of a Notice(s) of Prepayment at Option of Holder Upon Change of Control from the Holder, the Maker shall deliver the COC Repayment Price to the Holder immediately prior to the consummation of the Change of Control; provided that the Holder’s original Note shall have been so delivered to the Maker.

 

3.6 Inability to Fully Convert.

 

(a) Holder’s Option if Maker Cannot Fully Convert. If, upon the Maker’s receipt of a Conversion Notice or as otherwise required, under this Note, including with respect to repayment of principal in Common Shares as permitted under this Note, the Maker cannot issue Common Shares for any reason, including, without limitation, because the Maker (x) does not have a sufficient number of Common Shares authorized and available or (y) is otherwise prohibited by applicable law or by the rules or regulations of any stock exchange, interdealer quotation system or other self-regulatory organization with jurisdiction over the Maker or any of its securities from issuing all of the Common Shares which is to be issued to the Holder pursuant to this Note, then the Maker shall issue as many Common Shares as it is able to issue and, with respect to the unconverted portion of this Note or with respect to any Common Shares not timely issued in accordance with this Note, the Holder, solely at Holder’s option, can elect to:

 

(i) require the Maker to prepay that portion of this Note for which the Maker is unable to issue Common Shares or for which Common Shares were not timely issued (the “Mandatory Prepayment”) at a price equal to the number of Common Shares that the Maker is unable to issue multiplied by the VWAP on the date of the Conversion Notice (the “Mandatory Prepayment Price”);

 

(ii) void its Conversion Notice and retain or have returned, as the case may be, this Note that was to be converted pursuant to the Conversion Notice (provided that the Holder’s voiding its Conversion Notice shall not affect the Maker’s obligations to make any payments which have accrued prior to the date of such notice); or

 

(iii) defer issuance of the applicable Conversion Shares until such time as the Maker can legally issue such shares; provided, that the Principal Amount underlying such Conversion Shares shall remain outstanding until the delivery of such Conversion Shares; provided, further, that if the Holder elects to defer the issuance of the Conversion Shares, it may exercise its rights under either clause (i) or (ii) above at any time prior to the issuance of the Conversion Shares upon two (2) Business Days’ notice to the Maker.

 

14

 

b) Mechanics of Fulfilling Holder’s Election. The Maker shall immediately send to the Holder, upon receipt of a Conversion Notice from the Holder, which cannot be fully satisfied as described in Section 3.6(a) above, a notice of the Maker’s inability to fully satisfy the Conversion Notice (the “Inability to Fully Convert Notice”). Such Inability to Fully Convert Notice shall indicate (i) the reason why the Maker is unable to fully satisfy the Holder’s Conversion Notice; and (ii) the amount of this Note which cannot be converted. The Holder shall notify the Maker of its election pursuant to Section 3.6(a) above by delivering written notice to the Maker (“Notice in Response to Inability to Convert”).

 

(c) Payment of Mandatory Prepayment Price. If the Holder shall elect to have its Note prepaid pursuant to Section 3.6(a)(i) above, the Maker shall pay the Mandatory Prepayment Price to the Holder within five (5) Business Days of the Maker’s receipt of the Holder’s Notice in Response to Inability to Convert; provided that prior to the Maker’s receipt of the Holder’s Notice in Response to Inability to Convert the Maker has not delivered a notice to the Holder stating, to the satisfaction of the Holder, that the event or condition resulting in the Mandatory Prepayment has been cured and all Conversion Shares issuable to the Holder can and will be delivered to the Holder in accordance with the terms of this Note. If the Maker shall fail to pay the applicable Mandatory Prepayment Price to the Holder on the date that is one (1) Business Day following the Maker’s receipt of the Holder’s Notice in Response to Inability to Convert, in addition to any remedy the Holder may have under this Note and the Purchase Agreement, such unpaid amount shall bear interest at the rate of two percent (2%) per month (prorated for partial months) until paid in full. Until the full Mandatory Prepayment Price is paid in full to the Holder, the Holder may (i) void the Mandatory Prepayment with respect to that portion of the Note for which the full Mandatory Prepayment Price has not been paid and (ii) receive back such Note.

 

(d) No Rights as Stockholder. Nothing contained in this Note shall be construed as conferring upon the Holder, prior to the conversion of this Note, the right to vote or to receive dividends or to consent or to receive notice as a stockholder in respect of any meeting of stockholders for the election of directors of the Maker or of any other matter, or any other rights as a stockholder of the Maker.

(f) Prohibited Transactions. The Company hereby covenants and agrees not to enter into any Prohibited Transactions until thirty (30) days after such time as this Note has been converted into Conversion Shares or repaid in full.

If the Company issues any Equity Interests for aggregate proceeds to the Company of greater than $10,000,000, excluding offering costs or other expenses, unless otherwise waived in writing by and at the discretion of the Holder, the Company will direct 20% of such proceeds from such issuance to repay this Note, which repayment shall be without premium or penalty.

Siyata Mobile Enters into an Agreement for a US$6,000,000 Investment from The Lind Partners

 

Proceeds to Repay and Terminate Existing Convertible Notes

New Funding Convertible at US$10.00 Per Share

 

Vancouver, BC – October 27, 2021 – Siyata Mobile Inc. (NASDAQ: SYTA, SYTAW) (“Siyata” or the “Company”), a global vendor of Push-to-Talk over Cellular (PoC) devices and cellular signal booster systems, today announced it has signed a funding agreement for gross proceeds of US$6,000,000 with Lind Global Partners II, LP, an investment fund managed by The Lind Partners, a New York based institutional fund manager (together “Lind”). Proceeds are expected within ten (10) days of the execution of the agreement, subject to customary closing conditions and will be used to repay and terminate existing convertible notes.

 

“Staying connected in emergency situations is more critical now than ever and we are committed to being a leading provider of innovative push-to-talk and connectivity solutions to our first responder heroes around the world”, said Marc Seelenfreund, CEO of Siyata. “We are thrilled to have the support of The Lind Partners as a significant investor in Siyata and believe this funding will give us the flexibility we need to reach our goal of achieving profitability in the coming quarters.”

 

“We are pleased to provide this investment to repay Siyata’s debt, especially when the company is at such an exciting inflection point. The company has a promising product portfolio in a multi-billion-dollar emerging market and has partnered with major U.S. and international cellular carriers as distribution partners. We are hopeful that this will lead to strong growth for the company going forward,” said Phillip Valliere, Managing Director at The Lind Partners.

 

The investment is in the form of a US$7,200,000 convertible note with a 24-month maturity, 0% annual interest rate and is convertible into Company’s common shares at a fixed conversion price of US$10.00 (“Note”). Commencing 180 days after funding, the Company is required to make principal payments in 18 equal monthly installments. At the discretion of the Company, repayments can be made in cash or registered common shares. The Company will have the right to buy-back the outstanding Note amounts at any time with no penalty. Should the Company exercise this right, Lind will have the option to convert up to 25% of the Note. Additionally, the Note ranks senior to other Company debt, excluding certain debt facilities, and is secured over Company assets. Further, Lind will also receive 2,142,857 warrants exercisable for 60-months at US$4.00 per share. The Company is obligated to file a registration statement covering the shares of common stock underlying the Note and warrants within forty-five days of closing.
