Convertible Promissory Note
On November 13, 2023, we issued and sold a convertible promissory note with an aggregate principal amount of $4.0 million (the “Promissory Note”) in a private placement to YA II PN, Ltd. (“Yorkville”) under the Standby Equity Purchase Agreement dated as of March 8, 2023 between us and Yorkville (the “SEPA”). We intend to use the proceeds from the sale of the Promissory Note for working capital and other general corporate purposes.
The holder may convert the Promissory Note into shares of our Class A Common Stock (the “Common Stock”) at a conversion price of $0.25 (the “Conversion Price”) any time prior to the Maturity Date, subject to the terms and conditions of the Promissory Note, provided that there may be no such conversion if such conversion would cause the holder to beneficially own more than 4.99% of our common stock. The Promissory Note is to be repaid in one installment of $4,000,000 on March 31, 2024 (the “Maturity Date”). Interest shall not accrue on the outstanding principal balance of the Promissory Note unless and until there is an event of default, upon the occurrence of which, interest shall accrue at a rate of 15% per year until collected in full. The Promissory Note has a 15% original issue discount for gross proceeds of $3.4 million. Any repayments of the Promissory Note in cash carry a 5% redemption premium.
The foregoing description of the Promissory Note does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Promissory Note, a copy of which is filed with this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 4.1 hereto and is hereby incorporated herein by reference.

On November 13, 2023, we issued and sold the Promissory Note to Yorkville in a private placement pursuant to the exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). We offered and sold the Promissory Note to Yorkville in reliance on the exemption from registration provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act without the involvement of any underwriter. We relied on this exemption from registration based in part on representations made by Yorkville in the SEPA.
|Item 5.03||Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws.|
As previously disclosed, micromobility.com Inc. (the “Company”) held a scheduled special meeting of stockholders on November 13, 2023 (the “Special Meeting”), at which the Company’s stockholders approved, among other matters, a proposal to amend the Company’s Restated Certificate of Incorporation to (i) effect a reverse stock split of the Company’s common stock at a ratio to be determined by the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) within a range of one-for-fifty (1:50) and one-for-two-hundred (1:200) (or any number in between), with the exact ratio to be determined by the Board in its sole discretion (the “Reverse Stock Split Proposal”), and (ii) increase the number of authorized shares of capital stock of the Company from four hundred million shares (consisting of 300,000,000 shares of Common Stock and 100,000,000 shares of preferred stock) to one billion shares (consisting of 900,000,000 shares of Common Stock and 100,000,000 shares of preferred stock) (the “Authorized Increase Proposal”), and (iii) remove mention of the class B common stock, par value $0.00001 per share from the authorized capital stock of the Company (“Class B Removal Proposal”).
On November 13, 2023, upon the adoption of the Reverse Stock Split Proposal, the Board approval for a one-for-one-hundred-fifty (1:150) reverse split of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares of common stock (the “Reverse Stock Split”) became effective which is approved to occur on December 4, 2023, or soon thereafter. On November 13, 2023, the Company filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware a certificate of amendment to its Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Certificate of Amendment”) to effect the Reverse Stock Split Proposal, Authorized Increase Proposal, and Class B Removal Proposal. The Reverse Stock Split Proposal is to become effective as of 12:00 a.m. Eastern Time on December 4, 2023, or soon thereafter and the Company’s common stock is expected to begin trading on a split-adjusted basis when the Nasdaq Stock Market opens on December 4, 2023, or soon thereafter.
As a result of the effectiveness of the Reverse Stock Split Proposal, on December 4, 2023, or soon thereafter every one-hundred-fifty shares of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock will be automatically combined, converted and changed into one share of the Company’s common stock, without any change in the number of authorized shares or the par value per share. In addition, a proportionate adjustment will be made to the per share exercise price and the number of shares issuable upon the exercise of all outstanding stock options, restricted stock units and warrants to purchase shares of common stock and the number of shares reserved for issuance pursuant to the Company’s equity incentive compensation plans. No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the Reverse Stock Split Proposal, any fractional shares resultant from the Reverse Stock Split Proposal will be rounded up to the next whole share.
The Reverse Stock Split Proposal will occur on December 4, 2023, or soon thereafter, however if the Reverse Stock Split Proposal was effectiveness as of the date of this report, the Reverse Stock Split Proposal would reduce the number of shares of common stock issued and outstanding from approximately 285 million to approximately 1.9 million. Due to the Authorized Increase Proposal, the authorized number of shares of common stock will increase from 300 million to 900 million.
On December 4, 2023, or soon thereafter, holders of the Company’s common stock held in book-entry form or through a bank, broker or other nominee will not need to take any action in connection with the Reverse Stock Split Proposal. The Company’s common stock will continue to trade on the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC, but the security has been assigned a new CUSIP number.
The foregoing description of the Certificate of Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Certificate of Amendment, which is filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference herein.
|Item 5.07||Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.|

To authorize the Company’s Board to amend the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares of capital stock (the “Authorized Increase”) from four hundred million shares (consisting of 300,000,000 shares of Common Stock and 100,000,000 shares of preferred stock) to one billion shares (consisting of 900,000,000 shares of Common Stock and 100,000,000 shares of preferred stock);
To authorize the Company’s Board to amend the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation to remove the Class B common stock, par value $0.00001 per share from the authorized capital stock of the Company (the “Class B Removal”); and

Convertible Promissory Note
|Principal Amount: $4,000,000|
Issuance Date: November 13, 2023
FOR VALUE RECEIVED, micromobility.com, Inc. (formerly, Helbiz, Inc.), a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), hereby promises to pay to the order of YA II PN, LTD., or its registered assigns (the “Holder”), the principal amount advanced to the Company up to the Principal Amount (as increased or as reduced pursuant to the terms hereof pursuant to repayment, redemption, conversion or otherwise, the “Principal”) when due, whether upon the Maturity Date (as defined below), acceleration, redemption or otherwise (in each case in accordance with the terms hereof) and to pay interest (“Interest”) on any outstanding Principal at the applicable Interest Rate (as defined below) from the date set out above as the Issuance Date (the “Issuance Date”) until the same becomes due and payable, whether upon the Maturity Date or acceleration, conversion, redemption or otherwise (in each case in accordance with the terms hereof). Certain capitalized terms used herein are defined in Section (18). For the avoidance of doubt, the Issuance Date is the date of the first issuance of this Convertible Promissory Note (the “Note”) regardless of the number of transfers and regardless of the number of instruments, which may be issued to evidence such Note. This Note was issued with a 15% original issue discount.
This Note is being issued pursuant to Section 2.04 of the Standby Equity Purchase Agreement dated March 8, 2023 (as may be amended restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the “SEPA”) between the Company and the Holder. Upon the issuance of this Note by the Company and delivery of the same to the Holder, the Holder shall advance to the Company, the principal amount in accordance as with a closing statement to be delivered to the Holder contemporaneously with the closing hereof.
(1) GENERAL TERMS
(a) Maturity Date. On the Maturity Date, the Company shall pay to the Holder an amount in cash representing all then outstanding Principal, plus all accrued and unpaid Interest (if any). The “Maturity Date” shall be March 31, 2024. This Note may be redeemed in accordance with Sections 1(c) and 1(d) hereof.
(b) Interest Rate and Payment of Interest. Interest shall accrue on the outstanding principal balance hereof at the rate of 0% per year (the “Interest Rate”). Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, interest shall accrue at a rate of 15% per year until collected in full. Interest shall be calculated on the basis of a 365-day year and the actual number of days elapsed, to the extent permitted by applicable law.
(c) Mandatory Repayments. The Company shall, at its own option, either (i) repay in cash each Installment Amount set forth on the Repayment Schedule on or before each applicable Repayment Date, (ii) repay each Installment Amount by submitting an Advance Notice or a series of Advance Notices (an “Advance Repayment”) each with an Advance Date on or before each applicable Repayment Date, or (iii) repay in a combination of a cash repayment or an Advance Repayment. In respect of any Installment Amount to be repaid by the Company in cash, the Company shall pay to the Holder the Installment Amount to be paid to the Holder by wire transfer of immediately available funds in cash on or before such Repayment Date. If the Company elects an Advance Repayment, then the Company shall deliver an Advance Notice a series of Advance Notices to the Holder in accordance with the terms and conditions of the SEPA requesting advances in amount equal to the Installment Amount, or portion thereof, to be paid by an Advance Repayment, that will have Advance Dates on or before the applicable Installment Date, which Advance Notices shall specify that the proceeds, or a portion of the proceeds as may be permitted hereunder, to be paid to the Company shall be paid to the Holder pursuant to such Advance Repayment. Upon the closing of such Advance Notice in accordance with Section 2.02 of the SEPA, the Holder shall offset the amount due to be paid by the Holder to the Company under the SEPA against the portion of the Installment Amount to be paid by the Advance Repayment. If any portion of the Installment Amount remains unpaid at the applicable Repayment Date, the Borrower shall repay such outstanding Installment Amount as a cash repayment. Any repayments made in excess of amounts then due, whether from an Advance Repayment, Optional Redemption, conversions, or otherwise shall have the effect of reducing amounts due on subsequent Repayment Dates in the order that they come due.
(d) Optional Redemption. The Company at its option shall have the right, but not the obligation, to redeem (“Optional Redemption”) early a portion or all amounts outstanding under this Note as described in this Section; provided that (i) the trading price of the Common Stock is less than the Conversion Price and (ii) the Company provides the Holder with at least 5 Business Days’ prior written notice (each, a “Redemption Notice”) of its desire to exercise an Optional Redemption. Each Redemption Notice shall be irrevocable and shall specify the outstanding balance of the Note to be redeemed. The “Redemption Amount” shall be equal to the outstanding Principal balance being redeemed by the Company, plus all accrued and unpaid interest. After receipt of the Redemption Notice, the Holder shall have 5 Business Days to elect to convert all or any portion of this Note. On the 6th Business Day after the Redemption Notice, the Company shall deliver to the Holder the Redemption Amount with respect to the Principal amount redeemed after giving effect to conversions effected during the 5 Business Day period.
(e) Advance Notices. For so long as any amounts remain due and owing to the Holder (whether under this Note, the Prior Notes, or any other note or instrument of indebtedness), the Company hereby agrees that, in respect of each and every Advance Notice delivered pursuant to the SEPA (or any subsequent similar arrangement between the parties), an amount of the proceeds of any such Advance equal to the Applicable Redemption Percentage as of the submission of each Advance Notice shall be retained by the Holder and applied as an Optional Redemption towards the this Note or the Prior Notes (as determined by the Holder and notified to the Company in writing), in accordance with the terms of the applicable note, provided that, conditions (i) and (ii) of section 1(d) of the applicable Note or Prior Notes shall be waived in respect of such Optional Redemption. For the purposes hereof, the Applicable Redemption Percentage shall mean the greater of (a) 50% or (b) the quotient obtained by dividing (y) the total outstanding balance owed to the Holder by the Company, by (z) the total market value (based on the closing price immediately prior to the delivery of the particular Advance Notice) of the number of authorized shares of the Company remaining available and reserved for issuance to the Holder.
(2) EVENTS OF DEFAULT.
(a) An “Event of Default”, wherever used herein, means any one of the following events (whatever the reason and whether it shall be voluntary or involuntary or effected by operation of law or pursuant to any judgment, decree or order of any court, or any order, rule or regulation of any administrative or governmental body):

Such declaration may be rescinded and annulled by Holder at any time prior to payment hereunder. No such rescission or annulment shall affect any subsequent Event of Default or impair any right consequent thereon.
(3) CONVERSION OF NOTE. This Note shall be convertible into shares of the Company's Common Stock, on the terms and conditions set forth in this Section 3.
(a) Conversion Right. Subject to the provisions of this Section 3, at any time or times on or after the Issuance Date, the Holder shall be entitled to convert any portion of the outstanding Principal of this Note and accrued and unpaid Interest into fully paid and nonassessable shares of Common Stock, at the Conversion Price. The number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of any Conversion Amount pursuant to this Section 3(a) shall be determined by dividing (x) such Conversion Amount by (y) the Conversion Price (the “Conversion Rate”). The Company shall not issue any fraction of a share of Common Stock upon any conversion. If the issuance would result in the issuance of a fraction of a share of Common Stock, the Company shall round such fraction of a share of Common Stock up or down to the nearest whole share. The Company shall pay any and all transfer, stamp and similar taxes that may be payable with respect to the issuance and delivery of Common Stock upon conversion of any Conversion Amount.
(i) “Conversion Amount” means the portion of the Principal and accrued and unpaid Interest to be converted, redeemed or otherwise with respect to which this determination is being made.
(ii) “Conversion Price” means, as of any Conversion Date (as defined below) or other date of determination $0.25. The Conversion Price shall be adjusted from time to time pursuant to the other terms and conditions of this Note.
(b) Mechanics of Conversion.
(i) Optional Conversion. To convert any Conversion Amount into shares of Common Stock on any date (a “Conversion Date”), the Holder shall (A) transmit by email or facsimile with confirmation of delivery (or otherwise deliver by method set forth in Section 8), for receipt on or prior to 11:59 p.m., New York Time, on such date, a copy of an executed notice of conversion in the form attached hereto as Exhibit I (the “Conversion Notice”) to the Company and (B) if required by Section 3(c)(iii), surrender this Note to a nationally recognized overnight delivery service for delivery to the Company (or an indemnification undertaking reasonably satisfactory to the Company with respect to this Note in the case of its loss, theft or destruction). On or before the third (3rd) Business Day following the date of receipt of a Conversion Notice (the “Share Delivery Date”), the Company shall (X) if legends are not required to be placed on certificates of Common Stock and provided that the Transfer Agent is participating in the Depository Trust Company's (“DTC”) Fast Automated Securities Transfer Program, credit such aggregate number of shares of Common Stock to which the Holder shall be entitled to the Holder's or its designee's balance account with DTC through its Deposit Withdrawal Agent Commission system or (Y) if the Transfer Agent is not participating in the DTC Fast Automated Securities Transfer Program, issue and deliver to the address as specified in the Conversion Notice, a certificate, registered in the name of the Holder or its designee, for the number of shares of Common Stock to which the Holder shall be entitled which certificates shall not bear any restrictive legends unless required pursuant to rules and regulations of the Commission. If this Note is physically surrendered for conversion and the outstanding balance of this Note is greater than the portion of the Conversion Amount being converted, then the Company shall as soon as practicable and in no event later than three (3) Business Days after receipt of this Note and at its own expense, issue and deliver to the holder a new Note representing the outstanding balance not converted. The Person or Persons entitled to receive the shares of Common Stock issuable upon a conversion of this Note shall be treated for all purposes as the record holder or holders of such shares of Common Stock upon the transmission of a Conversion Notice.
(ii) Company's Failure to Timely Convert. If within three (3) from the Share Delivery Date the Company shall fail to issue and deliver a certificate to the Holder or credit the Holder's balance account with DTC for the number of shares of Common Stock to which the Holder is entitled upon such holder's conversion of any Conversion Amount (a “Conversion Failure”), and if on or after such Trading Day the Holder purchases (in an open market transaction or otherwise) Common Stock to deliver in satisfaction of a sale by the Holder of Common Stock issuable upon such conversion that the Holder anticipated receiving from the Company (a “Buy-In”), then the Company shall, within three (3) Business Days after the Holder's request and in the Holder's discretion, either (i) pay cash to the Holder in an amount equal to the Holder's total purchase price (including brokerage commissions and other out of pocket expenses, if any) for the shares of Common Stock so purchased (the “Buy-In Price”), at which point the Company's obligation to deliver such certificate (and to issue such Common Stock) shall terminate, or (ii) promptly honor its obligation to deliver to the Holder a certificate or certificates representing such Common Stock and pay cash to the Holder in an amount equal to the excess (if any) of the Buy-In Price over the product of (A) such number of shares of Common Stock, times (B) the Closing Bid Price on the Conversion Date.
(iii) Book-Entry. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth herein, upon conversion of any portion of this Note in accordance with the terms hereof, the Holder shall not be required to physically surrender this Note to the Company unless (A) the full Conversion Amount represented by this Note is being converted or (B) the Holder has provided the Company with prior written notice (which notice may be included in a Conversion Notice) requesting reissuance of this Note upon physical surrender of this Note. The Holder and the Company shall maintain records showing the Principal and Interest converted and the dates of such conversions or shall use such other method, reasonably satisfactory to the Holder and the Company, so as not to require physical surrender of this Note upon conversion.
(c) Limitations on Conversions.
(i) Beneficial Ownership. The Holder shall not have the right to convert any portion of this Note or receive shares of Common Stock hereunder to the extent that after giving effect to such conversion or receipt of such Interest payment, the Holder, together with any affiliate thereof, would beneficially own (as determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act and the rules promulgated thereunder) in excess of 4.99% of the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to such conversion or receipt of shares as payment of interest. Since the Holder will not be obligated to report to the Company the number of shares of Common Stock it may hold at the time of a conversion hereunder, unless the conversion at issue would result in the issuance of shares of Common Stock in excess of 4.99% of the then outstanding shares of Common Stock without regard to any other shares which may be beneficially owned by the Holder or an affiliate thereof, the Holder shall have the authority, responsibility and obligation to determine whether the restriction contained in this Section will limit any particular conversion hereunder and to the extent that the Holder determines that the limitation contained in this Section applies, the determination of which portion of the Principal amount of this Note is convertible shall be the responsibility and obligation of the Holder. The provisions of this Section may be waived by a Holder (but only as to itself and not to any other Holder) upon not less than 65 days prior notice to the Company. Other Holders shall be unaffected by any such waiver.
(d) Other Provisions.
(i) NO IMPAIRMENT. Except as expressly provided herein, no provision of this Note shall alter or impair the obligations of the Company, which are absolute and unconditional, to pay the Principal of, interest and other charges (if any) on, this Note at the time, place, and rate, and in the coin or currency, herein prescribed. This Note is a direct obligation of the Company. As long as this Note or the Prior Notes are outstanding, the Company shall not and shall cause their subsidiaries not to, without the consent of the Holder, (i) amend its certificate of incorporation, bylaws or other charter documents so as to adversely affect any rights of the Holder, other than in respect to a reverse stock split of its Common Stock which only impacts the outstanding shares and does not in any way reduce or decrease the authorized shares; (ii) repay, repurchase or offer to repay, repurchase or otherwise acquire shares of its Common Stock or other equity securities; (iii) enter into any agreement with respect to any of the foregoing; or (iv) enter into any agreement, arrangement or transaction in or of which the terms thereof would restrict, materially delay, conflict with or impair the ability of the Company to perform its obligations under the this Note or the Prior Notes, including, without limitation, the obligation of the Company to make cash payments hereunder.
(ii) All calculations under this Section 3 shall be rounded to the nearest $0.0001 or whole share.
(iii) The Company covenants and agrees that from and after November 13, 2023, it shall reserve and keep available out of its authorized and unissued shares of Common Stock no less than 500 million shares of Common Stock (as may be reduced by the issuance of shares pursuant to the SEPA or any promissory notes issued thereunder) solely for the purpose of issuances to the Holder (whether under this Note, the Prior Notes, the SEPA, or otherwise), free from preemptive rights or any other actual contingent purchase rights of persons other than the Holder, and shall provide written confirmation from its transfer agent evidencing such share reserve.
(iv) Nothing herein shall limit a Holder's right to pursue actual damages or declare an Event of Default pursuant to Section 2 herein for the Company’s failure to deliver certificates representing shares of Common Stock upon conversion within the period specified herein and such Holder shall have the right to pursue all remedies available to it at law or in equity including, without limitation, a decree of specific performance and/or injunctive relief, in each case without the need to post a bond or provide other security. The exercise of any such rights shall not prohibit the Holder from seeking to enforce damages pursuant to any other Section hereof or under applicable law.
(e) Adjustments to Conversion Price upon Subdivision or Combination of Common Stock. If the Company, at any time while this Note is outstanding, shall (a) pay a stock dividend or otherwise make a distribution or distributions on its Common Stock or any other equity or equity equivalent securities payable in shares which results in an increase in the number of outstanding Common Stock, (b) subdivide its outstanding Common Stock into a larger number, (c) combine (including by way of reverse share split) outstanding Common Stock into a smaller number, or (d) issue additional Common Stock by reclassification or any shares of capital stock of the Company, then the Conversion Price shall be multiplied by a fraction of which the numerator shall be the number of shares of Common Stock (excluding treasury shares, if any) outstanding before such event and of which the denominator shall be the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding after such event. Any adjustment made pursuant to this Section 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.
(f) Other Corporate Events. In addition to and not in substitution for any other rights hereunder, prior to the consummation of any Fundamental Transaction pursuant to which holders of shares of Common Stock are entitled to receive securities or other assets with respect to or in exchange for shares of Common Stock (a "Corporate Event"), the Company shall make appropriate provision to ensure that the Holder will thereafter have the right to receive upon a conversion of this Note, at the Holder's option, (i) in addition to the shares of Common Stock receivable upon such conversion, such securities or other assets to which the Holder would have been entitled with respect to such shares of Common Stock had such shares been held by the Holder upon the consummation of such Corporate Event (without taking into account any limitations or restrictions on the convertibility of this Note) or (ii) in lieu of the shares of Common Stock otherwise receivable upon such conversion, such securities or other assets received by the holders of shares of Common Stock in connection with the consummation of such Corporate Event in such amounts as the Holder would have been entitled to receive had this Note initially been issued with conversion rights for the form of such consideration (as opposed to the shares of Common Stock) at a conversion rate for such consideration commensurate with the Conversion Price. Provision made pursuant to the preceding sentence shall be in a form and substance satisfactory to the Required Holders. The provisions of this Section shall apply similarly and equally to successive Corporate Events and shall be applied without regard to any limitations on the conversion or redemption of this Note.
(g) Whenever the Conversion Price is adjusted pursuant to Section 3 hereof, the Company shall promptly mail to the Holder a notice setting forth the Conversion Price after such adjustment and setting forth a brief statement of the facts requiring such adjustment.
(h) In case of any (1) merger or consolidation of the Company or any subsidiary of the Company controlling more than one-half of the assets of the Company with or into another Person not affiliated with the Company, or (2) sale by the Company or any subsidiary of the Company of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company in one or a series of related transactions, the Holder shall have the right to (A) exercise any rights under Section (3), (B) convert the aggregate amount of this Note then outstanding into the shares of stock and other securities, cash and property receivable upon or deemed to be held by holders shares of Common Stock following such merger, consolidation or sale, and such Holder shall be entitled upon such event or series of related events to receive such amount of securities, cash and property as the shares of Common Stock into which such aggregate Principal amount of this Note could have been converted immediately prior to such merger, consolidation or sales would have been entitled, or (C) in the case of a merger or consolidation, require the surviving entity to issue to the Holder a Convertible Note with a Principal amount equal to the aggregate Principal amount of this Note then held by such Holder, plus all accrued and unpaid interest and other amounts owing thereon, which such newly issued Convertible Note shall have terms identical (including with respect to conversion) to the terms of this Note, and shall be entitled to all of the rights and privileges of the Holder of this Note set forth herein and the agreements pursuant to which this Notes were issued. In the case of clause (C), the conversion price applicable for the newly issued shares of Convertible Notes shall be based upon the amount of securities, cash and property that each share of Common stock would receive in such transaction and the Conversion Price in effect immediately prior to the effectiveness or closing date for such transaction. The terms of any such merger, sale or consolidation shall include such terms so as to continue to give the Holder the right to receive the securities, cash and property set forth in this Section upon any conversion or redemption following such event. This provision shall similarly apply to successive such events.
(i) For so long as more than $1 million of principal amount remain due and owing to the Holder (whether under this Note, the Prior Notes, or any other note or instrument of indebtedness), unless the Holders shall have given prior written consent, the Company shall not, and shall not permit any of its subsidiaries (whether or not a subsidiary on the date hereof) to, directly or indirectly (i) enter into, create, incur, assume, guarantee or suffer to exist any indebtedness for borrowed money of any kind, including, but not limited to, a guarantee, on or with respect to any of its property or assets now owned or hereafter acquired or any interest therein or any income or profits therefrom, (ii) enter into, create, incur, assume or suffer to exist any lien, security interest, option or other charge or encumbrance of any kind, on or with respect to any of its property or assets now owned or hereafter acquired or any interest therein or any income or profits therefrom, (iii) make any payments in respect of any related party debt, including, or (iv) enter into or agree to enter into any debenture, note, instrument, contract, financing arrangements, or other transaction that allows the holder of such instrument or counterparty to such transaction to acquire shares of Common Stock, or receive payments based on the price of the Common Stock, based on a price that varies or changes based on the market price of the Common Stock. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company shall be permitted to issue up to 1 million shares of Common Stock in connection with any acquisition,
(a) Registration Statement. If and only if the submission of an Advance Notice by the Holder in accordance with the procedures set forth in the SEPA is not available to the Holder, the Company will use its commercially reasonable efforts to file with the SEC, within 15 Business Days following receipt of written request of the Holder, a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (or if not then eligible, on Form S-1) (the “Initial Registration Statement”) including a base prospectus (such base prospectus included in the Initial Registration Statement, as supplemented or amended from time to time shall be referred to herein as the “Prospectus”) for the purpose of registering the resale by the Holder of any shares of Common Stock issuable to the Holder upon conversion of this Note pursuant to Section 3, and the Company will use its commercially reasonable efforts to have the Initial Registration Statement declared effective by the SEC. Except where the context otherwise requires, the Initial Registration Statement, as amended when it becomes effective, including all documents filed as part thereof or incorporated by reference therein, and including any information contained in a Prospectus subsequently filed with the SEC pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act or deemed to be a part of the Initial Registration Statement pursuant to Rule 430B of the Securities Act, is herein called the “Registration Statement.” At the time the Registration Statement becomes effective, the Registration Statement and any amendments thereto will conform in all material respects to the requirements of the Securities Act and will not contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading; and the Prospectus and any amendments or supplements thereto, at the time the Prospectus or any amendment or supplement thereto is issued, will conform in all material respects to the requirements of the Securities Act and will not contain an untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact necessary in order to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading.
(b) Maintaining a Registration Statement. The Company shall maintain the effectiveness of any Registration Statement with respect to the securities issuable hereunder at all times during the period beginning on the date hereof and ending 90 days after this Note (and any Notes issued in replacement or substitution of this Note) have been fully repaid or fully converted (the “Registration Period”). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, the Company shall ensure that, when filed, the Registration Statement (including, without limitation, all amendments and supplements thereto) and the prospectus (including, without limitation, all amendments and supplements thereto) used in connection with the Registration Statement shall not contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact required to be stated therein, or necessary to make the statements therein (in the case of prospectuses, in the light of the circumstances in which they were made) not misleading.
(c) Delivery of Final Documents. The Company shall furnish to the Holder without charge, (i) at least one copy of each Registration Statement as declared effective by the Commission and any amendment(s) thereto, including financial statements and schedules, all documents incorporated therein by reference, all exhibits and each preliminary prospectus, (ii) at the request of the Holder, at least one copy of the final prospectus included in such Registration Statement and all amendments and supplements thereto (or such other number of copies as the Investor may reasonably request) and (iii) such other documents as the Holder may reasonably request from time to time in order to facilitate the disposition of the Common Shares owned by the Investor pursuant to a Registration Statement. Filing of the forgoing with the Commission via its EDGAR system shall satisfy the requirements of this section.
With respect to the Company’s obligations under this Note, including, without limitation, the registration provisions in accordance with Section 4 hereof:
(a) To the fullest extent permitted by law, the Company will, and hereby does, indemnify, hold harmless and defend the Investor, the directors, officers, partners, employees, agents, representatives of, and each Person, if any, who controls any Investor within the meaning of the Securities Act or the Exchange Act (each, an “Indemnified Person”), against any losses, claims, damages, liabilities, judgments, fines, penalties, charges, costs, reasonable and documented attorneys’ fees, amounts paid in settlement or expenses, joint or several (collectively, “Claims”) incurred in investigating, preparing or defending any action, claim, suit, inquiry, proceeding, investigation or appeal taken from the foregoing by or before any court or governmental, administrative or other regulatory agency, body or the Commission, whether pending or threatened, whether or not an indemnified party is or may be a party thereto (“Indemnified Damages”), to which any of them may become subject insofar as such Claims (or actions or proceedings, whether commenced or threatened, in respect thereof) arise out of or are based upon: (i) any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact in a Registration Statement or any post-effective amendment thereto or in any filing made in connection with the qualification of the offering under the securities or other “blue sky” laws of any jurisdiction in which Registrable Securities are offered (“Blue Sky Filing”), or the omission or alleged omission to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading; (ii) any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in any final prospectus (as amended or supplemented, if the Company files any amendment thereof or supplement thereto with the Commission) or the omission or alleged omission to state therein any material fact necessary to make the statements made therein, in light of the circumstances under which the statements therein were made, not misleading; or (iii) any violation or alleged violation by the Company of the Securities Act, the Exchange Act, any other law, including, without limitation, any state securities law, or any rule or regulation there under relating to the offer or sale of the Registrable Securities pursuant to a Registration Statement (the matters in the foregoing clauses (i) through (iii) being, collectively, “Violations”). The Company shall reimburse the Investors and each such controlling person promptly as such expenses are incurred and are due and payable, for any reasonable and documented legal fees or disbursements or other reasonable expenses incurred by them in connection with investigating or defending any such Claim. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the indemnification agreement contained in this Section 5(a): (w) shall not apply to a Claim by an Indemnified Person arising out of or based upon a Violation which occurs in reliance upon and in conformity with information furnished in writing to the Company by such Indemnified Person expressly for use in connection with the preparation of the Registration Statement or any such amendment thereof or supplement thereto; (x) shall not be available to the extent such Claim is based on a failure of the Investor to deliver or to cause to be delivered the prospectus made available by the Company, if such prospectus was timely made available by the Company pursuant to Section 4(d); (y) shall not be available for the Claim of any Indemnified Person to the extent such Claim results from the willful misconduct, fraud or gross negligence of such Indemnified Person and (z) shall not apply to amounts paid in settlement of any Claim if such settlement is effected without the prior written consent of the Company, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. Such indemnity shall remain in full force and effect regardless of any investigation made by or on behalf of the Indemnified Person.
(b) Promptly after receipt by an Indemnified Person or Indemnified Party under this Section 5 of notice of the commencement of any action or proceeding (including any governmental action or proceeding) involving a Claim, such Indemnified Person or Indemnified Party shall, if a Claim in respect thereof is to be made against any indemnifying party under this Section 5, deliver to the indemnifying party a written notice of the commencement thereof, and the indemnifying party shall have the right to participate in, and, to the extent the indemnifying party so desires, jointly with any other indemnifying party similarly noticed, to assume control of the defense thereof with counsel mutually satisfactory to the indemnifying party and the Indemnified Person or the Indemnified Party, as the case may be; provided, however, that an Indemnified Person or Indemnified Party shall have the right to retain its own counsel with the reasonable and documented fees and expenses of not more than one (1) counsel for such Indemnified Person or Indemnified Party to be paid by the indemnifying party, if, in the reasonable opinion of counsel retained by the indemnifying party, the representation by such counsel of the Indemnified Person or Indemnified Party and the indemnifying party would be inappropriate due to actual or potential differing interests between such Indemnified Person or Indemnified Party and any other party represented by such counsel in such proceeding. The Indemnified Party or Indemnified Person shall cooperate fully with the indemnifying party in connection with any negotiation or defense of any such action or claim by the indemnifying party and shall furnish to the indemnifying party all information reasonably available to the Indemnified Party or Indemnified Person which relates to such action or claim. The indemnifying party shall keep the Indemnified Party or Indemnified Person fully apprised at all times as to the status of the defense or any settlement negotiations with respect thereto. No indemnifying party shall be liable for any settlement of any action, claim or proceeding effected without its prior written consent; provided, however, that the indemnifying party shall not unreasonably withhold, delay or condition its consent. No indemnifying party shall, without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party or Indemnified Person, consent to entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement or other compromise which does not include as an unconditional term thereof the giving by the claimant or plaintiff to such Indemnified Party or Indemnified Person of a release from all liability in respect to such claim or litigation. Following indemnification as provided for hereunder, the indemnifying party shall be subrogated to all rights of the Indemnified Party or Indemnified Person with respect to all third parties, firms or corporations relating to the matter for which indemnification has been made. The failure to deliver written notice to the indemnifying party within a reasonable time of the commencement of any such action shall not relieve such indemnifying party of any liability to the Indemnified Person or Indemnified Party under this Section 5, except to the extent that the indemnifying party is prejudiced in its ability to defend such action.
(c) The indemnification required by this Section 5 shall be made by periodic payments of the amount thereof during the course of the investigation or defense, as and when bills are received or Indemnified Damages are incurred.
(d) The indemnity agreements contained herein shall be in addition to (i) any cause of action or similar right of the Indemnified Party or Indemnified Person against the indemnifying party or others, and (ii) any liabilities the indemnifying party may be subject to pursuant to the law.
(6) CONTRIBUTION. To the extent any indemnification by an indemnifying party is prohibited or limited by law, the indemnifying party agrees to make the maximum contribution with respect to any amounts for which it would otherwise be liable under Section 5 to the fullest extent permitted by law.
