4.18          Investment Company. The Company (on a consolidated basis with its Subsidiaries) is not and, after giving effect to the offering and sale of the Securities, will not be required to register as an “investment company” as defined in the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended.

 

4.19          Governmental Permits, Etc. The Company and each of its Subsidiaries possess all material licenses, certificates, permits and other authorizations issued by all applicable authorities necessary to conduct their respective businesses, and the Company and each of its Subsidiaries have not received any written notice of proceedings relating to the revocation or modification of any such certificate, authorization or permit which, singly or in the aggregate, if the subject of an unfavorable decision, ruling or finding, would have a Material Adverse Effect, whether or not arising from transactions in the ordinary course of business.

The Company (on a consolidated basis) maintains a system of internal accounting controls sufficient to provide reasonable assurance that: (i) transactions are executed in accordance with management’s general or specific authorizations; (ii) transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles and to maintain asset accountability; (iii) access to assets is permitted only in accordance with management’s general or specific authorization; and (iv) the recorded accountability for assets is compared with the existing assets at reasonable intervals and appropriate action is taken with respect to any differences. Except as set forth below, the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting are effective to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and the Company is not aware of any material weakness in its internal controls over financial reporting. The Company maintains “disclosure controls and procedures” (as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Exchange Act); such disclosure controls and procedures are effective. A material weakness has been identified whereby due to our limited number of employees, we have not adequately segregated certain duties to ensure that employees are unable to override the internal control system. During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020, a Director of Accounting was hired, and additional procedures were implemented to improve the segregation of duties. However, until additional personnel are hired it is not possible to fully remediate this material weakness.

 

4.21          Labor. No labor problem or dispute with the employees of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries exists or, to the Knowledge of the Company, is threatened.

(b)               Upon the earliest of (i) the Securities being subject to an effective registration statement covering the resale of the Securities, (ii) such time as the Securities have been sold pursuant to Rule 144, or (iii) such time as the Securities are eligible for resale under Rule 144(b)(1) or any successor provision, the Company shall, no later than Two Business Days thereafter, (A) deliver to the Transfer Agent irrevocable instructions that the Transfer Agent shall make a new, unlegended entry for such book entry Securities, together with (solely in the case of an “unlegending” in connection with a sale pursuant to Rule 144 as contemplated by subclause (ii)), a customary representation by the Investor that Rule 144 applies to the Securities represented thereby and (B) cause its counsel to deliver to the Transfer Agent one or more opinions to the effect that the removal of such legends in such circumstances may be effected under the Securities Act if required by the Transfer Agent to effect the removal of the legend in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement. The Company agrees that following such time as such legend is no longer required under this Section 7.4, it will, upon an Investor’s written request and compliance with the immediately preceding sentence, deliver or cause to be delivered to such Investor, a certificate representing that such Securities are free from all restrictive and other legends. Securities subject to legend removal hereunder shall be transmitted by the Transfer Agent to the Investor by crediting the account of the Investor’s custodian as directed by such Investor.

 

7.7              Furnishing of Information. In order to enable the Investors to sell the Securities under Rule 144, until the date that the Shares and the Warrant Shares cease to be Registrable Securities (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement), the Company shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to timely file (or obtain extensions in respect thereof and file within the applicable grace period) all reports required to be filed by the Company after the Effective Date pursuant to the Exchange Act. During such period, if the Company is not required to file reports pursuant to the Exchange Act, it will prepare and furnish to the Investors and make publicly available in accordance with Rule 144(c) such information as is required for the Investors to sell the Securities under Rule 144.

7.8              Indemnification of Investors. Subject to the provisions of this Section 7.8, the Company will indemnify and hold each Investor, its officers, directors, agents, partners, members, managers, stockholders, affiliates, employees and investment advisors, and each person who controls such Investor (within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act), and the officers, directors, partners, members, managers, stockholders, agents, affiliates, employees and investment advisers of each such controlling person, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Law, harmless from any and all losses, liabilities, obligations, claims, contingencies, damages, costs and expenses, including all judgments, amounts paid in settlements, court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs of investigation, as incurred, that arise out of or are based upon (i) any breach of any of the representations, warranties, covenants or agreements made by the Company in this Agreement, or (ii) any violation or alleged violation by the Company of the Securities Act, the Exchange Act or any state securities law or any rule or regulation thereunder, in connection with the performance of its obligations under this Section 7, except to the extent, but only to the extent, that such untrue statements, alleged untrue statements, omissions or alleged omissions are based upon information regarding the undersigned furnished in writing to the Company by the Investor expressly for use therein. The Company shall notify the Investor promptly of the institution, threat or assertion of any proceeding arising from or in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Section 7 of which the Company is aware. Such indemnity shall remain in full force and effect regardless of any investigation made by or on behalf of an indemnified party and shall survive the transfer of Units (or the underlying Common Stock or Warrants) by the Investor. Notwithstanding the forgoing, the Company’s indemnification obligations shall not apply to amounts paid in settlement of any losses or action if such settlement is effected without the prior written consent of the Company (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed); provided, however, that the aggregate liability of the Company to each Investor under this Section 7.8 shall not exceed the amount paid by such Investor to the Company pursuant to Section 3. Promptly after receipt by any Investor (the “Indemnified Person”) of notice of any demand or claim from any Person that would or might give rise to a claim or the commencement of any action, proceeding or investigation in respect of which indemnification may be sought pursuant to this Section 7.8 (a “Third Party Claim”), such Indemnified Person shall promptly notify the Company in writing, and in reasonable detail, of such Third Party Claim. Thereafter, the Indemnified Person will deliver to the Company, within five (5) Business Days after the Indemnified Person’s receipt thereof, copies of all notices and documents (including court papers) received by the Indemnified Person relating to the Third Party Claim. If a Third Party Claim is made against the Company, the Company will be entitled to participate in the defense thereof and, if it so chooses, to assume the defense thereof (subject to a reservation of rights) with counsel selected by the Company by giving the Indemnified Person notice within twenty (20) days of the Company’s receipt of notice of the Third Party Claim pursuant to this Section 7.8. If the Company does not give such notice to the Indemnified Person of the Company’s intent to assume the defense of the Third Party Claim, the Indemnified Person shall be entitled to assume the defense thereof. Should the Company so elect to assume the defense of a Third Party Claim, the Company will not be liable to the Indemnified Person for legal expenses subsequently incurred by the Indemnified Person in connection with the defense thereof. If the Company assumes such defense, the Indemnified Person will have the right to participate in the defense thereof and to employ counsel, at its own expense, separate from the counsel employed by the Company, it being understood, however, that the Company will control such defense. If the Company chooses to defend any Third Party Claim, then all the Parties will cooperate in the defense or prosecution of such Third Party Claim. The Indemnified Person will not admit any liability with respect to, or settle, compromise or discharge, any Third Party Claim without the prior written consent of the Company. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Company shall not enter into settlement of any Third Party Claim without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Person (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld), unless such settlement requires only the payment of money that the Company is obligated to pay.

7.9              Equal Treatment of Investors. No consideration shall be offered or paid to any Person to amend or consent to a waiver or modification of any provision of any of the Transaction Documents unless the same consideration is also offered to all of the Parties to the Transaction Documents. For clarification purposes, this provision constitutes a separate right granted to each Investor by the Company and negotiated separately by each Investor, and is intended for the Company to treat the Investors as a class and shall not in any way be construed as the Investors acting in concert or as a group with respect to the purchase, disposition or voting of Securities or otherwise.

 

7.10          Compliance with Laws. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, each Investor covenants that the Securities may be disposed of only pursuant to an effective registration statement under, and in compliance with the requirements of, the Securities Act, or pursuant to an available exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act, and in compliance with any applicable state and federal securities Laws. In connection with any transfer of the Securities other than (i) pursuant to an effective registration statement, (ii) to the Company, (iii) pursuant to Rule 144 (provided that the Investor provides the Company with reasonable assurances (in the form of seller and, if applicable, broker representation letters) that the Securities may be sold pursuant to such rule), or (iv) to its Affiliates, the Company may require the transferor thereof to provide to the Company an opinion of counsel selected by the transferor and reasonably acceptable to the Company, the form and substance of which opinion shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Company, to the effect that such transfer does not require registration of such transferred Securities under the Securities Act. As a condition of transfer, any such transferee shall agree in writing to be bound by the terms of this Agreement and shall have the rights of an Investor under this Agreement with respect to such transferred Securities.

 

7.11          Disclosure of Material Non-Public Information. The Company shall not disclose material non-public information to the Investors, or to advisors to or representatives of the Investors, unless prior to disclosure of such information the Company identifies such information as being material non-public information and provides the Investors, such advisors and representatives with the opportunity to accept or refuse to accept such material non-public information for review and any Investor wishing to obtain such information enters into an appropriate confidentiality agreement with the Company with respect thereto. Except with respect to the material terms and conditions of the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents, the Company confirms that neither it nor any other Person acting on its behalf has provided any of the Investors or their agents or counsel with any information that it believes constitutes or might constitute material, non-public information which has been, or will not as of the Closing be, publicly disclosed. The Company understands and confirms that the Investors will rely on the foregoing representation in effecting transactions in securities of the Company.

7.12         Termination of Certain Obligations. The provisions of Sections 7.3(c) and 7.11 shall terminate and be of no further force and effect on the date on which the Company’s obligations under the Registration Rights Agreement to register or maintain the effectiveness of any registration covering the Registrable Securities (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement) shall terminate.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Section shall not apply with respect to an Exempt Issuance, and may be waived by the prior written consent of the Required Investors (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement).

 

7.16.          Reporting Status. the Company shall not terminate its status as an issuer required to file reports under the Exchange Act unless the Exchange Act or the rules and regulations thereunder would no longer require or otherwise permit such termination, and the Company shall take all actions reasonably necessary to maintain its eligibility to register the Shares for resale by the Investors on Form S-3 or, if it is ineligible to use Form S-3, on Form S-1.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company and the Investors acknowledge and agree that the Placement Agents and the Advisor are intended third party beneficiaries of Section 4 and Section 5 hereof and that the Placement Agents and the Advisor may enforce the provisions of such Sections directly against the parties with obligations thereunder.

The obligations of each Investor under any Transaction Document are several and not joint with the obligations of any other Investor, and no Investor shall be responsible in any way for the performance of the obligations of any other Investor under any Transaction Document. The decision of each Investor to purchase Securities pursuant to the Transaction Documents has been made by such Investor independently of any other Investor. Nothing contained in any Transaction Document, and no action taken by any Investor pursuant thereto, shall be deemed to constitute the Investors as a partnership, an association, a joint venture or any other kind of entity, or create a presumption that the Investors are in any way acting in concert or as a group with respect to such obligations or the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents. Each Investor acknowledges that no other Investor has acted as agent for such Investor in connection with making its investment hereunder and that no Investor will be acting as agent of such Investor in connection with monitoring its investment in the Securities or enforcing its rights under the Transaction Documents. Each Investor shall be entitled to independently protect and enforce its rights, including, without limitation, the rights arising out of the Transaction Documents, and it shall not be necessary for any other Investor to be joined as an additional party in any proceeding for such purpose. The Company acknowledges that each of the Investors has been provided with the same Transaction Documents for the purpose of closing a transaction with multiple Investors and not because it was required or requested to do so by any Investor.

ANNEX I

 

Regulation D Rule 506 Disclosure

 

On March 24, 2016, the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) Division of Corporation Finance, pursuant to delegated authority, granted a waiver to Canaccord Genuity Inc. (“Canaccord”) from the bad actor provisions of Rule 506(d) of Regulation D and Rule 262 of Regulation A under the Securities Act of 1933 (“Securities Act”) that would otherwise apply to Canaccord due to an SEC administrative order issued on the same day. In the administrative order, Canaccord, without admitting or denying any allegations, was ordered to cease and desist from violations of Section 5 of the Securities Act based on the initiation of research coverage for an issuer after Canaccord had been invited by the issuer to participate as an underwriter for a secondary stock offering that was planned for at least one month later. Canaccord also was ordered to pay $407,481 in disgorgement, $42,717 in prejudgment interest and $100,000 in civil money penalties.
