Certain Definitions. In addition to the terms defined elsewhere in this Agreement, the following terms shall have the following meanings: “Affiliate” means, as applied to any Person, any other Person directly or indirectly controlling, controlled by, or under common control with, that Person.

It is understood and agreed that, once a security of the kind described in clause (i) or (ii) above becomes a security of the kind described in clause (I) above, such security shall cease to be a Registrable Share for all purposes of this Agreement and the Company’s obligations regarding Registrable Shares hereunder shall cease to apply with respect to such security. “Registration Expenses” has the meaning set forth in Section 8(a). “Registration Statement” means any registration statement of the Company which covers any of the Registrable Shares pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement, including the Prospectus, amendments and supplements to such Registration Statement, including post-effective amendments, all exhibits and all documents incorporated by reference in such Registration Statement. “S-3 Shelf Registration” has the meaning set forth in Section 4(a). “S-3 Shelf Registration Statement” has the meaning set forth in Section 4(a). “SEC” means the Securities and Exchange Commission or any successor agency. “Securities Act” means the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. “Shares” means any shares of Common Stock.

Section 2. Demand Registration. (a) Right to Request Registration. Subject to the provisions hereof, until the applicable Termination Date, each Investor or any group of Investors may at any time request in writing (a “Demand”) registration for resale under the Securities Act of all or part of the Registrable Shares separate from an S-3 Shelf Registration (a “Demand Registration”); provided, however, that (based on the then-current market prices) the number of Registrable Shares included in the Demand Registration would, if fully sold, reasonably be expected to yield gross proceeds to such Investor(s) of at least the Minimum Amount. Within seven days after receipt of a Demand, the Company shall give written notice of such Demand to any other Person that on the date a Demand is delivered to the Company is an Investor. Subject to Section 2(c), the Company shall include in the Demand Registration covered by such Demand all Registrable Shares with respect to which the Company has received a written request for inclusion therein within three business days after receipt of such written notice. Subject to Section 2(d) and Sections 5 and 7 below, the Company shall use reasonable best efforts (i) to file a Registration Statement registering for resale such number of Registrable Shares as requested to be so registered pursuant to this Section 2(a) (a “Demand Registration Statement”) within 45 days after such Investor(s)’ request therefor and (ii) if necessary, to cause such Demand Registration Statement to be declared effective by the SEC as soon as practical thereafter. If permitted under the Securities Act, such Registration Statement shall be one that is automatically effective upon filing. (b) Number of Demand Registrations. Subject to the limitations of Sections 2(a), 2(d) and 4(a), the Investors shall be entitled to request up to three Demand Registrations in the aggregate (regardless of the number of Permitted Transferees who may become an Investor pursuant to Section 11). A Registration Statement shall not count as a permitted Demand Registration unless and until it has become effective, unless the Investor(s) elect to have such Registration Statement count as a Demand Registration pursuant to Section 8(b) hereof. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, the aggregate number of Demand Registrations, underwritten offerings and underwritten Shelf Takedowns shall not exceed four in total. 5


 
(c) Priority on Demand Registrations. The Company may include Shares other than Registrable Shares in a Demand Registration for any accounts (including for the account of the Company) on the terms provided below; and if such Demand Registration is an underwritten offering, such Shares may be included only with the consent of the managing underwriters of such offering. If the managing underwriters of the requested Demand Registration advise the Company and the Investor(s) requesting such Demand Registration that in their opinion the number of Shares proposed to be included in the Demand Registration exceeds the number of Shares which can be sold in such underwritten offering without materially delaying or jeopardizing the success of the offering (including the price per share of the Shares proposed to be sold in such underwritten offering), the Company shall include in such Demand Registration (i) first, the number of Registrable Shares requested to be included therein by the Investor(s) pursuant to clause 2(a) above pro rata among all such Investors on the basis of the number of Shares requested to be included therein, and (ii) second, the number of Shares proposed to be included therein by any other Persons (including Shares to be sold for the account of the Company) allocated among such Persons in such manner as the Company may determine. If the number of Shares which can be sold is less than the number of Shares proposed to be registered pursuant to clause (i) above by such Investor(s), the amount of Shares to be sold shall be allocated pro rata among such Investor(s). (d) Restrictions on Demand Registrations. No Investor shall be entitled to request a Demand Registration (i) within three months after any Investor has sold Shares in a Demand Registration or an underwritten Shelf Takedown requested pursuant to Section 4(b), (ii) within three months after any primary or secondary offering of Shares by the Company, including a Block Trade or (iii) at any time when the Company is diligently pursuing (x) a primary or secondary underwritten offering of Shares pursuant to a registration statement (but only if the Investors are provided their piggyback rights, if any, in accordance with Sections 3(a) and 3(c)) or (y) a Block Trade. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company shall not be obligated to proceed with a Demand Registration if the offering to be effected pursuant to such registration can be effected pursuant to an S-3 Shelf Registration and the Company, in accordance with Section 4, effects or has effected an S-3 Shelf Registration pursuant to which such offering can be effected. (e) Underwritten Offerings. An Investor or group of Investors shall be entitled to request an underwritten offering pursuant to a Demand Registration, but only if the number of Registrable Shares to be sold in the offering would reasonably be expected to yield gross proceeds to such Investor(s) of at least the Minimum Amount (based on then-current market prices) and only if the request is not made within three months after any Investor has sold Shares in an underwritten offering pursuant to (i) a Demand Registration or (ii) an S-3 Shelf Registration. If any of the Registrable Shares covered by a Demand Registration are to be sold in an underwritten offering, the Company shall have the right to select the managing underwriter or underwriters to lead the offering. (f) Effective Period of Demand Registrations. Upon the date of effectiveness of any Demand Registration for an underwritten offering and if such offering is priced promptly on or after such date, the Company shall use reasonable best efforts to keep such Demand Registration Statement effective for a period equal to 60 days from such date or such shorter period which shall terminate when all of the Registrable Shares covered by such Demand Registration have been sold. If the Company shall withdraw any Demand Registration pursuant to Section 5 before such 60 days end and before all of the Registrable Shares covered by such Demand 6


 
Registration have been sold pursuant thereto, the Investor(s) whose Registrable Shares were included therein and not sold shall be entitled to a replacement Demand Registration which shall be subject to all of the provisions of this Agreement. A Demand Registration shall not count against the limit on the number of such registrations set forth in Section 2(b) if (i) after the applicable Registration Statement has become effective, such Registration Statement or the related offer, sale or distribution of Registrable Shares thereunder becomes the subject of any stop order, injunction or other order or restriction imposed by the SEC or any other governmental agency or court for any reason not attributable to the Investor or their Affiliates (other than the Company and its controlled Affiliates) and such interference is not thereafter eliminated so as to permit the completion of the contemplated distribution of Registrable Shares or (ii) in the case of an underwritten offering, the conditions specified in the related underwriting agreement, if any, are not satisfied or waived for any reason not attributable to the Investor or their Affiliates (other than the Company and its controlled Affiliates), and as a result of any such circumstances described in clause (i) or (ii), less than 75% of the Registrable Shares covered by the Registration Statement are sold by the Investor(s) pursuant to such Registration Statement. Section 3. Piggyback Registrations. (a) Right to Piggyback. Whenever prior to the applicable Termination Date the Company proposes to register any Shares under the Securities Act (other than on a registration statement on Form S-8, F-8, S-4 or F-4), whether for its own account or for the account of one or more holders of Shares (other than the Investors), and the form of registration statement to be used may be used for any registration of Registrable Shares (a “Piggyback Registration”), the Company shall give written notice to each Investor of its intention to effect such a registration and, subject to Sections 3(c) and 3(d), shall include in such registration statement and in any offering of Shares to be made pursuant to that registration statement all Registrable Shares with respect to which the Company has received a written request for inclusion therein from an Investor within 10 days after such Investor’s receipt of the Company’s notice or, in the case of a primary offering, such shorter time as is reasonably specified by the Company in light of the circumstances (provided that only Registrable Shares of the same class or classes as the Shares being registered may be included). The Company shall have no obligation to proceed with any Piggyback Registration and may abandon, terminate and/or withdraw such registration for any reason at any time prior to the pricing thereof. If the Company or any other Person other than an Investor proposes to sell Shares in an underwritten offering pursuant to a registration statement on Form S-3 under the Securities Act, such offering shall be treated as a primary or secondary underwritten offering pursuant to a Piggyback Registration. (b) Block Trades: Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Piggyback Registration Rights described in Section 3.1(a) shall not apply to any Block Trades undertaken by the Company on behalf of itself or any other stockholders. (c) Priority on Primary Piggyback Registrations. If a Piggyback Registration is initiated as a primary underwritten offering on behalf of the Company and the managing underwriters advise the Company and any Investors (if such Investors have elected to include Registrable Shares in such Piggyback Registration) that in their opinion the number of Shares proposed to be included in such offering exceeds the number of Shares (of any class) which can be sold in such offering without adverse effect on the price, timing or distribution of the Shares to 7


 
be so included, then there shall be included in such offering the number or dollar amount of Shares that in the good faith opinion of such managing underwriters can be sold without so adversely affecting such offering, and such number of Shares shall be allocated for inclusion as follows: (i) first, the number of Shares that the Company proposes to sell, (ii) second, the number of Shares requested to be included therein by any Investors (if such Investors have elected to include Registrable Shares in such Piggyback Registration), pro rata among all such Investor on the basis of the number of Shares requested to be included therein by all such Investors, and (iii) third, the number of Shares requested to be included therein by all other holders of Shares, pro rata among all such holders on the basis of the number of Shares requested to be included therein by all such holders or as such holders and the Company may otherwise agree (with allocations among different classes of Shares, if more than one are involved, to be determined by the Company). (d) Priority on Secondary Piggyback Registrations. If a Piggyback Registration is initiated as an underwritten registration on behalf of a holder of Shares other than the Investors, and the managing underwriters advise the Company that in their opinion the number of Shares proposed to be included in such registration exceeds the number of Shares (of any class) which can be sold in such offering without adverse effect on the price, timing or distribution of the Shares to be so included, then there shall be included in such offering the number or dollar amount of Shares that in the good faith opinion of such managing underwriters can be sold without so adversely affecting such offering, and such number of Shares shall be allocated for inclusion as follows: (i) first, the number of Shares requested to be included therein by the holder(s) requesting such registration, (ii) second, the number of Shares requested to be included therein by other holders of Shares including any Investors (if such Investors have elected to include Registrable Shares in such Piggyback Registration), pro rata among all such Investor on the basis of the number of Shares requested to be included therein by all such Investors, and (iii) third, the number of Shares that the Company proposes to sell, pro rata among such holders on the basis of the number of Shares requested to be included therein by such holders or as such holders and the Company may otherwise agree (with allocations among different classes of Shares, if more than one are involved, to be determined by the Company). (e) Selection of Underwriters. If any Piggyback Registration is a primary or secondary underwritten offering, the Company shall have the right to select the managing underwriter or underwriters to administer any such offering. (f) Basis of Participations. No Investor may sell Registrable Shares in any offering pursuant to a Piggyback Registration unless it (a) agrees to sell such Shares on the same basis provided in the underwriting or other distribution arrangements approved by the Company and that apply to the Company and/or any other holders involved in such Piggyback Registration and (b) completes and executes all questionnaires, powers of attorney, indemnities, underwriting agreements, lockups and other documents required under the terms of such arrangements. Section 4. S-3 Shelf Registration. (a) Shelf Registration. Subject to the provisions hereof, the Company shall, as promptly as reasonably practicable, but no later than September 19, 2020, (i) file (if permitted to do so under the Securities Act and the rules and regulations thereunder) a Registration Statement on Form S-3 (or an amendment or supplement to an existing registration statement on Form S-3, 8


 
a ”S-3 Shelf Registration Statement”) for a public offering of all or such portion of the Registrable Shares designated by any Investor pursuant to Rule 415 promulgated under the Securities Act or otherwise (an “S-3 Shelf Registration”) and (ii) if necessary, cause such S-3 Shelf Registration Statement to become effective as soon as practical thereafter. If permitted under the Securities Act, such S-3 Shelf Registration Statement shall be one that is automatically effective upon filing. (b) Right to Effect Shelf Takedowns. An Investor or group of Investors shall be entitled, at any time and from time to time when an S-3 Shelf Registration Statement is effective and until the Termination Date, to sell such Registrable Shares as are then registered pursuant to such Registration Statement (each, a “Shelf Takedown”), but only upon not less than five business days’ prior written notice to the Company (if such takedown is to be underwritten). An Investor shall be entitled to request that a Shelf Takedown be an underwritten offering; provided, however, that (based on the then-current market prices) the number of Registrable Shares included in each such underwritten Shelf Takedown would reasonably be expected to yield gross proceeds to such Investor(s) of at least the Minimum Amount, and provided further that such Investor(s) shall not be entitled to request any underwritten Shelf Takedown (i) within three months after any Investor has sold Shares in an underwritten offering effected pursuant to (x) a Demand Registration or (y) an S-3 Shelf Registration, (ii) within three months after any primary or secondary offering of Shares by the Company, including a Block Trade or (iii) at any time when the Company is diligently pursuing (x) a primary or secondary underwritten offering of Shares pursuant to a registration statement (but only if the Investors are provided their piggyback rights, if any, in accordance with Sections 3(a) and 3(c)) or (y) a Block Trade. Each Investor shall give the Company prompt written notice of the consummation of each Shelf Takedown (whether or not underwritten). (c) Priority on Underwritten Shelf Takedowns. The Company may include Shares other than Registrable Shares in an underwritten Shelf Takedown for any accounts on the terms provided below, but only with the consent of the managing underwriters of such offering and whichever of the Investors that has requested such Shelf Takedown (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld). If the managing underwriters of the requested underwritten Shelf Takedown advise the Company and the requesting Investors that in their opinion the number of Shares proposed to be included in the underwritten Shelf Takedown exceeds the number of Shares which can be sold in such offering without materially delaying or jeopardizing the success of the offering (including the price per share of the Shares proposed to be sold in such offering), the Company shall include in such underwritten Shelf Takedown (i) first, the number of Shares that the requesting Investor(s) proposes to sell, and (ii) second, the number of Shares proposed to be included therein by any other Persons (including Shares to be sold for the account of the Company) allocated among such Persons in such manner as the Company may determine. If the number of Shares which can be sold is less than the number of Registrable Shares proposed to be included in the underwritten Shelf Takedown pursuant to clause (i) above, the amount of Shares to be so sold shall be allocated to requesting Investor(s). The provisions of this paragraph (b) apply only to a Shelf Takedown that an Investor has requested be an underwritten offering. (d) Selection of Underwriters. If any of the Registrable Shares are to be sold in an underwritten Shelf Takedown initiated by an Investor, the Company shall have the right to select the managing underwriter or underwriters to lead the offering. 9


 
(e) Effective Period of S-3 Shelf Registrations. The Company shall, subject to the other applicable provisions of this Agreement, use reasonable best efforts to cause any S-3 Shelf Registration Statement to be continuously effective and usable until such time as there are no longer any Registrable Shares. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company shall not be obligated to keep any such registration statement effective, or to permit Registrable Shares to be registered, offered or sold thereunder, at any time on or after the Termination Date. Section 5. Suspension Periods. (a) Suspension Periods. The Company may (i) delay the filing or effectiveness of a Registration Statement in conjunction with a Demand Registration or an S-3 Shelf Registration or require the Investor(s) to suspend any offerings or sales of Registrable Shares pursuant thereto or (ii) prior to the pricing of any underwritten offering or other offering of Registrable Shares pursuant to a Demand Registration or an S-3 Shelf Registration, delay such underwritten or other offering (and, if it so chooses, withdraw any registration statement that has been filed), but in each case described in clauses (i) and (ii) only if the Company’s board of directors determines in its reasonable discretion, based on written advice of counsel (x) that proceeding with such an offering would require the Company to disclose material information that would not otherwise be required to be disclosed at that time and that the disclosure of such information at that time would be materially harmful to the Company, or (y) that the registration or offering to be delayed would, if not delayed, materially adversely affect the Company and its subsidiaries taken as a whole or materially interfere with, or jeopardize the success of, any pending or proposed material transaction, including, any material debt or equity financing, any material acquisition or disposition, or any recapitalization or reorganization of the Company. Any period during which the Company has delayed a filing, an effective date or an offering pursuant to this Section 5 is herein called a “Suspension Period”. If pursuant to this Section 5 the Company delays or withdraws a Demand Registration requested by an Investor, the requesting Investor(s) shall be entitled to withdraw such request and, if they do so, such request shall not count against the limitation on the number of such registrations set forth in Section 2. The Company shall provide prompt written notice to the Investors of the commencement and termination of any Suspension Period (and any withdrawal of a registration statement pursuant to this Section 5), the reasons for such Suspension Period and an approximation of the anticipated length of such Suspension Period, but shall not be obligated under this Agreement to disclose the reasons therefor. The Investors shall keep the existence of each Suspension Period confidential and refrain from making offers and sales of Registrable Shares (and direct any other Persons making such offers and sales to refrain from doing so) during each Suspension Period. In no event (i) may the Company deliver notice of a Suspension Period to the Investors more than three times in any calendar year and (ii) shall a Suspension Period or Suspension Periods be in effect for an aggregate of 180 days or more in any calendar year. (b) Other Lockups. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Company shall not be obligated to take any action hereunder that would violate any lockup or similar restriction in existence on the date hereof and binding on the Company in connection with a prior or pending registration or underwritten offering. 10


 
(c) Warrant Restrictions. Nothing in this Agreement shall affect the restrictions on transfers of Shares and other provisions of a Warrant, which shall apply independently hereof in accordance with the terms thereof. Section 6. [Reserved]. Section 7. Registration Procedures. (a) In connection with the S-3 Shelf Registration Statement provided for in Section 4(a) and whenever an Investor requests that any Registrable Shares be registered pursuant to this Agreement, the Company shall use reasonable best efforts to effect, as soon as practical as provided herein, the registration and the sale of such Registrable Shares in accordance with the intended methods of disposition thereof, and, pursuant thereto, the Company shall, as soon as practical as provided herein: (i) subject to the other provisions of this Agreement, use reasonable best efforts to prepare and file with the SEC a Registration Statement with respect to such Registrable Shares and cause such Registration Statement to become effective (unless it is automatically effective upon filing); (ii) use reasonable best efforts to prepare and file with the SEC such amendments and supplements to such Registration Statement and the Prospectus used in connection therewith as may be necessary to comply with the applicable requirements of the Securities Act and to keep such Registration Statement effective for the relevant period required hereunder, but no longer than is necessary to complete the distribution of the Registrable Shares covered by such Registration Statement, and to comply with the applicable requirements of the Securities Act with respect to the disposition of all the Registrable Shares covered by such Registration Statement during such period in accordance with the intended methods of disposition set forth in such Registration Statement; (iii) use reasonable best efforts to obtain the withdrawal of any order suspending the effectiveness of any Registration Statement, or the lifting of any suspension of the qualification or exemption from qualification of any Registrable Shares for sale in any jurisdiction in the United States; (iv) deliver, without charge, such number of copies of the preliminary and final Prospectus and any supplement thereto to each participating Investor may reasonably request in order to facilitate the disposition of the Registrable Shares of such Investor covered by such Registration Statement in conformity with the requirements of the Securities Act; (v) use reasonable best efforts to register or qualify such Registrable Shares under such other securities or blue sky laws of such U.S. jurisdictions as any participating Investor reasonably requests and continue such registration or qualification in effect in such jurisdictions for as long as the applicable Registration Statement may be required to be kept effective under this Agreement (provided that the Company will not be required to qualify generally to do business in any jurisdiction where it would not otherwise 11


 
be required to (I) qualify but for this subparagraph (v), (II) subject itself to taxation in any such jurisdiction or (III) consent to general service of process in any such jurisdiction); (vi) notify each participating Investor and each distributor of such Registrable Shares identified by such Investor, at any time when a Prospectus relating thereto would be required under the Securities Act to be delivered by such distributor, of the occurrence of any event as a result of which the Prospectus included in such Registration Statement contains an untrue statement of a material fact or omits a material fact necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading, and, at the request of such Investor, the Company shall use reasonable best efforts to prepare, as soon as practical, a supplement or amendment to such Prospectus so that, as thereafter delivered to any prospective purchasers of such Registrable Shares, such Prospectus shall not contain an untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading; (vii) in the case of an underwritten offering in which an Investor participates pursuant to a Demand Registration, a Piggyback Registration or an S-3 Shelf Registration, enter into an underwriting agreement in customary form (including provisions for indemnification, lockups, opinions of counsel and comfort letters) and such other documents reasonably required under the terms of such underwriting arrangement, and take all such other customary and reasonable actions as the managing underwriters of such offering may request in order to facilitate the disposition of such Registrable Shares (including, making members of senior management of the Company available at reasonable times and places to participate in “road-shows” that the managing underwriter determines are necessary to effect the offering); (viii) in the case of an underwritten offering in which an Investor participates pursuant to a Demand Registration, a Piggyback Registration or an S-3 Shelf Registration, and to the extent not prohibited by applicable law, (A) make reasonably available, for inspection by the managing underwriters of such offering and any counsel or accountants acting for such managing underwriters, pertinent corporate documents and financial and other records of the Company and its subsidiaries and controlled Affiliates, (B) cause the Company’s and its subsidiary’s officers, directors and employees to supply information and participate in customary due diligence sessions in each case reasonably requested by such managing underwriters, counsel or accountants in connection with such offering, (C) make the Company’s independent accountants available for any such managing underwriters’ due diligence and have them provide customary comfort letters to such underwriters in connection therewith; and (D) cause the Company’s counsel to furnish customary legal opinion and a “negative assurance letter” to such underwriters in connection therewith; provided, however, that such records and other information shall be subject to such confidential treatment as is customary for underwriters’ due diligence reviews; (ix) use reasonable best efforts to cause all such Registrable Shares to be listed on each primary securities exchange (if any) on which securities of the same class issued by the Company are then listed; 12


 
(x) provide a transfer agent and registrar for all such Registrable Shares not later than the effective date of such Registration Statement and, a reasonable time before any proposed sale of Registrable Shares pursuant to a Registration Statement, provide the transfer agent if reasonably required by the transfer agent, an opinion of counsel as to the effectiveness of the Registration Statement, together with any other authorizations, certificates and directions required by the transfer agent which authorize and direct the transfer agent to issue such Registrable Shares without legend upon sale by the holder of such shares of Registrable Shares under the Registration Statement and with printed certificates for the Registrable Shares to be sold, subject to the provisions of Section 10; (xi) make generally available to its shareholders a consolidated earnings statement (which need not be audited) for a period of 12 months beginning after the effective date of the Registration Statement as soon as reasonably practicable after the end of such period, which earnings statement shall satisfy the requirements of an earning statement under Section 11(a) of the Securities Act and Rule 158 thereunder; (xii) cooperate with the Investors and each underwriter or agent participating in the disposition of Registrable Shares and their respective counsel in connection with any filings required to be made with FINRA; and (xiii) promptly notify each participating Investor, as applicable, and the managing underwriters of any underwritten offering, if any: (1) when the Registration Statement, any pre-effective amendment, the Prospectus or any Prospectus supplement or any post-effective amendment to the Registration Statement has been filed and, with respect to the Registration Statement or any post-effective amendment, when the same has become effective; (2) of any request by the SEC for amendments or supplements to the Registration Statement or the Prospectus or for any additional information regarding such Investor; (3) of the notification to the Company by the SEC of its initiation of any proceeding with respect to the issuance by the SEC of any stop order suspending the effectiveness of the Registration Statement; (4) if at any time the Company has reason to believe that the representations and warranties of the Company or any of its subsidiaries contained in any agreement relating to such offering (including any underwriting agreement contemplated by Section 7(a)(vii) above) cease to be true and correct; and (5) of the receipt by the Company of any notification with respect to the suspension of the qualification of any Registrable Shares for sale under the applicable securities or blue sky laws of any jurisdiction. 13


 
For the avoidance of doubt, the provisions of clauses (vi), (viii), (xi) and (xiii) of this Section 7(a) shall apply only in respect of an underwritten offering and only if (based on market prices at the time the offering is requested by such Investor(s) the number of Registrable Shares to be sold in the offering would reasonably be expected to yield gross proceeds to such Investor(s) of at least the Minimum Amount. (b) No Registration Statement (including any amendments thereto) shall 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 not misleading, and no Prospectus (including any supplements thereto) shall contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading, in each case, except for any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or omission or alleged omission of a material fact made in reliance on and in conformity with written information furnished to the Company by or on behalf of an Investor, any selling securityholder or any underwriter or other distributor specifically for use therein. (c) At all times after the Company has filed a registration statement with the SEC pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Act and until the Termination Date, the Company shall use reasonable best efforts to continuously maintain in effect the registration of Common Stock under Section 12 of the Exchange Act and to use reasonable best efforts to file all reports required to be filed by it under the Securities Act and the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations adopted by the SEC thereunder, all to the extent required to enable each applicable Investor to be eligible to sell Registrable Shares (if any) pursuant to Rule 144 under the Securities Act. (d) The Company may require each applicable Investor and each distributor of Registrable Shares as to which any registration is being effected to furnish to the Company information regarding such Person and the distribution of such securities as the Company may from time to time reasonably request in connection with such registration. (e) Each Investor agrees by having its shares of Common Stock treated as Registrable Shares hereunder that, upon being advised in writing by the Company of the occurrence of an event pursuant to Section 7(a)(vi), such Investor will immediately discontinue (and direct any other Persons making offers and sales of Registrable Shares to immediately discontinue) offers and sales of Registrable Shares pursuant to any Registration Statement (other than those pursuant to a plan that is in effect prior to such time and that complies with Rule 10b5- 1 under the Exchange Act) until it is advised in writing by the Company that the use of the Prospectus may be resumed and is furnished with a supplemented or amended Prospectus as contemplated by Section 7(a)(vi), and, if so directed by the Company, each Investor will deliver to the Company all copies (at the Company’s expense), other than permanent file copies then in each Investor’s possession, of the Prospectus covering such Registrable Shares current at the time of receipt of such notice. (f) The Company may prepare and deliver a free writing prospectus (as such term is defined in Rule 405 under the Securities Act) in lieu of any supplement to a Prospectus, and references herein to any “supplement” to a Prospectus shall include any such free writing 14


 
prospectus. No Investor nor any other seller of Registrable Shares may use a free writing prospectus to offer or sell any such shares without the Company’s prior written consent. (g) It is understood and agreed that any failure of the Company to file a registration statement or any amendment or supplement thereto or to cause any such document to become or remain effective or usable within or for any particular period of time as provided in Section 2, 4 or 7 or otherwise in this Agreement, due to reasons that are not reasonably within its control, or due to any refusal of the SEC to permit a registration statement or prospectus to become or remain effective or to be used because of unresolved SEC comments thereon (or on any documents incorporated therein by reference) despite the Company’s good faith and reasonable best efforts to resolve those comments, shall not be a breach of this Agreement. (h) It is further understood and agreed that the Company shall not have any obligations under this Section 7 at any time on or after the Termination Date, unless an underwritten offering in which an Investor participates has been priced but not completed prior to the Termination Date, in which event the Company’s obligations under this Section 7 shall continue with respect to such offering until it is so completed (but not more than 60 days after the commencement of the offering). (i) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, the Company shall not be required to file a Registration Statement or include Registrable Shares in a Registration Statement unless it has received from an Investor, at least three business days prior to the anticipated filing date of the Registration Statement, reasonably requested information required to be included in such Registration Statement and to be provided by such Investor for inclusion therein. Section 8. Registration Expenses. (a) All expenses incident to the Company’s performance of or compliance with this Agreement, including all registration and filing fees, fees and expenses of compliance with securities or blue sky laws, FINRA fees, listing application fees, printing expenses, transfer agent’s and registrar’s fees, cost of distributing Prospectuses in preliminary and final form as well as any supplements thereto, and fees and disbursements of counsel for the Company and all independent certified public accountants and other Persons retained by the Company (all such expenses being herein called “Registration Expenses”) (but not including any underwriting discounts or commissions attributable to the sale of Registrable Shares by the Investor or fees and expenses of counsel and any other advisor representing any underwriters or other distributors), shall be borne by the Company. Each Investor shall bear the cost of all underwriting discounts and commissions associated with any sale of Registrable Shares, pro rata based on the number of Registrable Shares being sold by that Investor, and shall pay its own costs and expenses, including all fees and expenses of any counsel (and any other advisers) representing such Investor and any stock transfer taxes. (b) The obligation of the Company to bear the expenses described in Section 8(a) shall apply irrespective of whether a registration, once properly demanded or requested becomes effective or is withdrawn or suspended; provided, however, that Registration Expenses for any Registration Statement withdrawn solely at the request of one or more Investors 15


 
(unless withdrawn following commencement of a Suspension Period pursuant to Section 5) shall be borne by such Investor(s), unless such Investor(s) elects to have such withdrawn Registration Statement count against the limit on the number of such registrations set forth herein. Section 9. Indemnification. (a) The Company shall indemnify, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the Investors and each Person who controls the Investors (within the meaning of the Securities Act) against all losses, claims, damages, liabilities, judgments, costs (including reasonable and documented costs of investigation) and expenses (including reasonable and documented attorneys’ fees) arising out of or based upon any untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in any Registration Statement or Prospectus or any amendment thereof or supplement thereto or arising out of or based upon any omission or alleged omission of a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, except insofar as the same are made in reliance and in conformity with information furnished in writing to the Company by the Investors or to the Company by any participating underwriter in each case expressly for use therein. In connection with an underwritten offering in which any Investor participates conducted pursuant to a registration effected hereunder, the Company shall enter into the underwriting agreement contemplated by Section 7(a)(vii) containing customary indemnification provisions and otherwise indemnify each participating underwriter and each Person who controls such underwriter (within the meaning of the Securities Act) to the same extent as provided above with respect to the indemnification of such Investor(s). (b) In connection with any Registration Statement in which an Investor is participating, such Investor shall furnish to the Company in writing such information as the Company reasonably requests for use in connection with any such Registration Statement or Prospectus, or amendment or supplement thereto, and shall indemnify, severally and not jointly, to the fullest extent permitted by law, (i) the Company, its officers and directors and each Person who controls the Company (within the meaning of the Securities Act) and (ii) each participating underwriter, if any, and each Person who controls such underwriter (within the meaning of the Securities Act) against all losses, claims, damages, liabilities, judgments, costs (including reasonable and documented costs of investigation) and expenses (including reasonable and documented attorneys’ fees) arising out of or based upon any untrue or alleged untrue statement of material fact contained in the Registration Statement or Prospectus, or any amendment or supplement thereto, or arising out of or based upon any omission or alleged omission of a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, but only to the extent that the same are made in reliance and in conformity with information furnished in writing to the Company by or on behalf of such Investor expressly for use therein. (c) Any Person entitled to indemnification hereunder shall (i) give prompt written notice to the indemnifying Person of any claim with respect to which it seeks indemnification and (ii) permit such indemnifying Person to assume the defense of such claim with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the indemnified Person. Failure so to notify the indemnifying Person shall not relieve it from any liability that it may have to an indemnified Person except to the extent that the indemnifying Person is materially and adversely prejudiced thereby. The indemnifying Person shall not be subject to any liability for any settlement made by the indemnified Person without its consent. An indemnifying Person who is entitled to, and elects to, 16


 
assume the defense of a claim shall not be obligated to pay the fees and expenses of more than one counsel (in addition to one local counsel in each jurisdiction) for all Persons indemnified (hereunder or otherwise) by such indemnifying Person with respect to such claim (and all other claims arising out of the same circumstances), unless in the reasonable judgment of any indemnified Person there may be one or more legal or equitable defenses available to such indemnified Person which are in addition to or may conflict with those available to another indemnified Person with respect to such claim, in which case such maximum number of counsel for all indemnified Persons shall be two rather than one). If an indemnifying Person is entitled to, and elects to, assume the defense of a claim, the indemnified Person shall continue to be entitled to participate in the defense thereof, with counsel of its own choice, but, except as set forth above, the indemnifying Person shall not be obligated to reimburse the indemnified Person for the costs thereof. The indemnifying Person shall not consent to the entry of any judgment or enter into or agree to any settlement relating to a claim or action for which any indemnified Person would be entitled to indemnification by any indemnified Person hereunder unless such judgment or settlement imposes no ongoing obligations on any such indemnified Person and includes as an unconditional term the giving, by all relevant claimants and plaintiffs to such indemnified Person, a release, satisfactory in form and substance to such indemnified Person, from all liabilities in respect of such claim or action for which such indemnified Person would be entitled to such indemnification. The indemnifying Person shall not be liable hereunder for any amount paid or payable or incurred pursuant to or in connection with any judgment entered or settlement effected with the consent of an indemnified Person unless the indemnifying Person has also consented to such judgment or settlement. (d) The indemnification provided for under this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect regardless of any investigation made by or on behalf of the indemnified Person or any officer, director or controlling Person of such indemnified Person and shall survive the transfer of securities and the applicable Termination Date but only with respect to offers and sales of Registrable Shares made before the applicable Termination Date or during the period following the applicable Termination Date referred to in Section 7(g). (e) If the indemnification provided for in or pursuant to this Section 9 is due in accordance with the terms hereof, but is held by a court to be unavailable or unenforceable in respect of any losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses referred to herein, then each applicable indemnifying Person, in lieu of indemnifying such indemnified Person, shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by such indemnified Person as a result of such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the indemnifying Person on the one hand and of the indemnified Person on the other in connection with the statements or omissions which result in such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses as well as any other relevant equitable considerations. The relative fault of the indemnifying Person on the one hand and of the indemnified Person on the other shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether the untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or the omission or alleged omission to state a material fact relates to information supplied by the indemnifying Person or by the indemnified Person, and by such Person’s relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such statement or omission. In no event shall the liability of the indemnifying Person be greater in amount than the amount for which such indemnifying Person would have been obligated to pay by way of 17


 
indemnification if the indemnification provided for under Section 9(a) or 9(a) hereof had been available under the circumstances. Section 10. Securities Act Restrictions. The Registrable Shares are restricted securities under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold except pursuant to an effective registration statement or an available exemption from registration under the Securities Act. Accordingly, an Investor shall not, directly or through others, offer or sell any Registrable Shares except pursuant to a Registration Statement as contemplated herein or pursuant to Rule 144 or another exemption from registration under the Securities Act, if available. Prior to any transfer of Registrable Shares other than pursuant to an effective registration statement, an Investor shall notify the Company of such transfer and the Company may require such Investor to provide, prior to such transfer, such evidence that the transfer will comply with the Securities Act (including written representations or an opinion of counsel) as the Company may reasonably request. The Company may impose stop-transfer instructions with respect to any Registrable Shares that are to be transferred in contravention of this Agreement. Any certificates representing the Registrable Shares shall bear a legend (and the Company’s share registry shall bear a notation) referencing the restrictions on transfer contained in this Agreement, until such time as such securities have ceased to be (or are to be transferred in a manner that results in their ceasing to be) Registrable Shares. Section 11. Transfers of Rights. (a) If an Investor transfers any rights to a Permitted Transferee in accordance with the provisions of a Warrant, such Permitted Transferee shall, together with all other such Permitted Transferees and the Investors, also have the rights of the Investors under this Agreement, but only if the Permitted Transferee signs and delivers to the Company a written acknowledgment (in form and substance satisfactory to the Company) that it has joined with the Investors and the other Permitted Transferees as a party to this Agreement and has assumed the rights and obligations of the Investors hereunder with respect to the rights transferred to it by an Investor. Each such transfer shall be effective when (but only when) the Permitted Transferee has signed and delivered the written acknowledgment to the Company. Upon any such effective transfer, the Permitted Transferee shall automatically have the rights so transferred, and the applicable Investor’s obligations under this Agreement, and the rights not so transferred, shall continue, provided that under no circumstances shall the Company be required to provide more than four Demand Registrations. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, no Person who acquires securities transferred in violation of this Agreement or a Warrant, or who acquires securities that are not or upon acquisition cease to be Registrable Shares, shall have any rights under this Agreement with respect to such securities, and such securities shall not have the benefits afforded hereunder to Registrable Shares. Section 12. Miscellaneous. (a) Notices. Any notice, request, instruction or other document to be given hereunder by any party to the other will be in writing and will be deemed to have been duly given (a) on the date of delivery if delivered personally upon confirmation of receipt, or (b) on the second business day following the date of dispatch if delivered by a nationally recognized next day courier service, in each case with a copy sent concurrently by e-mail.

The rights and remedies herein provided shall be cumulative and not exclusive of any rights or remedies provided by law. (c) Assignment. Neither this Agreement nor any right, remedy, obligation nor liability arising hereunder or by reason hereof shall be assignable by any party hereto without the prior written consent of the other parties, and any attempt to assign any right, remedy, obligation or liability hereunder without such consent shall be void, except (i) an assignment, in the case of a merger or consolidation where such party is not the surviving entity, or a sale of substantially all of its assets, to the entity which is the survivor of such merger or consolidation or the purchaser in such sale or (ii) an assignment by an Investor to a Permitted Transferee in accordance with the terms hereof.

(e) Governing Law; Submission to Jurisdiction; Waiver of Jury Trial, Etc. This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York applicable to contracts made and to be performed entirely within such State.

This Agreement shall become effective when each party hereto shall have received counterparts hereof signed by all of the other parties hereto. (g) Entire Agreement.

(h) Captions. The headings and other captions in this Agreement are for convenience and reference only and shall not be used in interpreting, construing or enforcing any provision of this Agreement. (i) Severability. If any term, provision, covenant or restriction of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction or other authority to be invalid, void or unenforceable, the remainder of the terms, provisions, covenants and restrictions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect and shall in no way be affected, impaired or invalidated so long as the economic or legal substance of the transactions contemplated hereby is not affected in any manner materially adverse to any party. Upon such a determination, the parties shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect the original intent of the parties as closely as possible in an acceptable manner in order that the transactions contemplated hereby be consummated as originally contemplated to the fullest extent possible.
