The Redemption Notice shall state: (i) the Redemption Date of such Shares, (ii) the number of Series I Class A Preferred Stock to be redeemed from the holder to whom the Redemption Notice is addressed, (iii) instructions for surrender to the Corporation, in the manner and at the place designated of a share certificate or share certificates representing the number of Series I Class A Preferred Stock to be redeemed from such holder, and (iv) instructions as to how to specify to the Corporation the number of Series I Class A Preferred Stock to be redeemed as provided in this Part 4, and the number of shares to be convened into Common Shares as provided in Part 5 hereof.

Part 5 - Conversion.

 

5.1 For the purposes of conversion of the Series I Class A Preferred Stock shall be valued at $1,000 per share (“Value”), and, if converted, the Series I Class A Preferred Stock shall be converted into such number of Common Shares (the “Conversion Shares”) as is obtained by dividing the aggregate Value of the shares of Series I Class A Preferred Stock being so converted, together with all accrued but unpaid dividends thereon, by the “Average Stock Price” per share of the Conversion Shares (the “Conversion Price”), subject to adjustment pursuant to the provisions of this Part 5. For purposes of this Part 5, the “Average Stock Price” means the lesser of (x) seventy percent (70%) of the average daily closing bid prices of the Common Shares for the period of five (5) consecutive trading days immediately preceding the date of subscription by the Holder or (y) seventy percent (70%) of the daily average closing bid prices of Common Shares for the period of five (5) consecutive trading days immediately preceding the date of the conversion of the Series I Class A Preferred Stock in respect of which such Average Stock Price is determined. The closing price for each trading day shall be determined as provided in the last sentence of Section 3.2.

 

5.2 Any holder of Series I Class A Preferred Stock (an “Eligible Holder”) may at any time commencing forty-five (45) days after the issuance of any Series I Class A Preferred Stock convert up to one hundred percent (100%) of his holdings of Series I Class A Preferred Stock in accordance with this Part 5.

 

5.3 The conversion right granted by Section 5.2 hereof may be exercised only by an Eligible Holder of Series I Class A Preferred Stock, in whole or in part, by the surrender of the share certificate or share certificates representing the Series I Class A Preferred Stock to be converted at the principal office of the Corporation (or at such other place as the Corporation may designate in a written notice sent to the holder by first class mail, postage prepaid, at its address shown on the books of the Corporation) against delivery of that number of whole Common Shares as shall be computed by dividing (I) the aggregate Value of the Series I Class A Preferred Stock so surrendered for conversion plus any accrued but unpaid dividends thereon, if any, by (2) the Conversion Price in effect at the date of the conversion. At the time of conversion of a share of the Series I Class A Preferred Stock, the Corporation shall pay in cash to the holder thereof an amount equal to all unpaid dividends, if any, accrued thereon to the date of conversion, or at the Corporation’s option, issue that number of whole Common Shares which is equal to the product of dividing the amount of such unpaid dividends by the Average Stock Price whether or not declared by the Board. Each Series I Class A Preferred Stock share certificate surrendered for conversion shall be endorsed by its holder. In the event of any exercise of the conversion right of the Series I Class A Preferred Stock granted herein (i) share certificate representing the Common Shares purchased by virtue of such exercise shall be delivered to such holder within three (3) days of notice of conversion, and (ii) unless the Series I Class A Preferred Stock has been fully converted, anew share certificate representing the Series I Class A Preferred Stock not so converted, if any, shall also be delivered to such holder within three (3) days of notice of conversion. Any Eligible Holder may exercise its right to convert the Series I Class A Preferred Stock by telecopying an executed and completed Notice of Conversion to the Corporation, and within seventy-two (72) hours thereafter, delivering the original Notice of Conversion and the certificate representing the Series I Class A Preferred Stock to the Corporation by express courier. Each date on which a Notice of Conversion is telecopied to and received by the Corporation in accordance with the provisions hereof shall be deemed a conversion date. The Corporation will transmit the Common Shares certificates issuable upon conversion of any Series I Class A Preferred Stock (together with the certificates representing the Series I Class A Preferred Stock not so converted) to the Eligible Holder via express courier within three (3) business days after the conversion date if the Corporation has received the original Notice of Conversion and the Series I Class A Shares certificates being so converted by such date.

 

 -5- 

 

 

5.4 All Common Shares which may be issued upon conversion of Series I Class A Preferred Stock will, upon issuance, be duly issued, fully paid and nonassessable and free from all taxes, liens, and charges with respect to the issue thereof. At all times that any Series I Class A Preferred Stock is outstanding, the Corporation shall have authorized, and shall have reserved for the purpose of issuance upon such conversion, a sufficient number of Common Shares to provide for the conversion into Common Shares of all Series I Class A Preferred Stock then outstanding at the then effective Conversion Price. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, if, at any time, the Conversion Price is decreased, the number of Common Shares authorized and reserved for issuance upon the conversion of the Series I Class A Preferred Stock shall be proportionately increased.

 

5.5 The number of Common Shares issued upon conversion of Series I Class A Preferred Stock and the Conversion Price shall be subject to adjustment from time to time upon the happening of certain events, as follows:

 

5.5.1 Change of Designation of the Common Shares or the rights, privileges, restrictions and conditions in respect of the Common Shares or division of the Common Shares into series. In the case of any amendment to the Articles to change the designation of the Common Shares or the rights, privileges, restrictions or conditions in respect of the Common Shares or division of the Common Shares into series the rights of the holders of the Series I Class A Preferred Stock shall be adjusted so as to provide that upon conversion thereof, the holder of the Series I Class A Preferred Stock being converted shall procure, in lieu of each Common Share theretofore issuable upon such conversion, the kind and amount of shares, other securities, money and property receivable upon such designation, change or division by the holder of one Common Share issuable upon such conversion had conversion occurred immediately prior to such designation, change or division. The Series I Class A Preferred Stock shall be deemed thereafter to provide for adjustments which shall be as nearly equivalent as may be practicable to the adjustments provided for in this Part 5. The provisions of this subsection 5.5.1 shall apply in the same manner to successive reclassifications, changes, consolidations, and mergers.

 

 -6- 

 

 

 

5.5.2 If the Corporation, at any time while any of the Series I Class A Preferred Stock is outstanding, shall amend the Articles so as to change the Common Shares into a different number of shares, the Conversion Price shall be proportionately reduced, in case of such change increasing the number of Common Shares, as of the effective date of such increase, or if the Corporation shall take a record of holders of its Common Shares for the purpose of such increase, as of such record date, whichever is earlier, or the Conversion Price shall be proportionately increased, in the case of such change decreasing the number of Common Shares, as of the effective date of such decrease or, if the Corporation shall take a record of holders of its Common Stock for the purpose of such decrease, as of such record date, whichever is earlier.

 

5.5.3 If the Corporation, at any time while any of the Series I Class A Preferred Stock is outstanding, shall pay a dividend payable in Common Shares (except for any dividends of Common Shares payable pursuant to Part 3 hereof), the Conversion Price shall be adjusted, as of the date the Corporation shall take a record of the holders of its Common Shares for the purposes of receiving such dividend (or if no such record is taken, as of the date of payment of such dividend), to that price determined by multiplying the Conversion Price therefor in effect by a fraction (1) the numerator of which shall be the total number of Common Shares outstanding immediately prior to such dividend, and (2) the denominator of which shall be the total number of Common Shares outstanding immediately after such dividend (plus in the event that the Corporation paid cash for fractional shares, the number of additional shares which would have been outstanding had the Corporation issued fractional shares in connection with said dividend).

 

5.6 Whenever the Conversion Price shall be adjusted pursuant to Section 5.5 hereof, the Corporation shall make a certificate signed by its President, or a Vice President and by its Treasurer, Assistant Treasurer, Secretary or Assistant Secretary, setting forth, in reasonable detail, the event requiring the adjustment, the amount of the adjustment, the method by which such adjustment was calculated (including a description of the basis on which the Board of Directors made any determination hereunder), and the Conversion Price after giving effect to such adjustment, and shall cause copies of such certificates to be mailed (by first class mail, postage prepaid) to each holder of the Series I Class A Preferred Stock at its address shown on the books of the Corporation. The Corporation shall make such certificate and mail it to each such holder promptly after each adjustment.

 

5.7 No fractional Common Shares shall be issued in connection with any conversion of Series I Class A Preferred Stock, but in lieu of such fractional shares, the Corporation shall make a cash payment therefor equal in amount to the product of the applicable fraction multiplied by the Conversion Price then in effect.

 

 -7- 

 

 

5.8 No Series I Class A Preferred Stock which has been converted into Common Shares shall be reissued by the Corporation; provided, however, that each such share shall be restored to the status of authorized but unissued Preferred Stock without designation as to series and may thereafter be issued as a series of Preferred Stock not designated as Series I Class A Preferred Stock.

 

Part 6 - parity with Other Shares of Class A Preferred Shares.

 

6.1 If any cumulative dividends or accounts payable or return of capital in respect of Series I Class A Preferred Stock are not paid in full, the owners of all series of outstanding Preferred Stock shall participate rateably in respect of accumulated dividends and return of capital.

 

Part 7 - Amendment.

 

7.1 In addition to any requirement for a series vote pursuant to the GCL in respect of any amendment to the Corporation’s Certificate of Incorporation that adversely affects the rights, privileges, restrictions and conditions of the Series I Class A Preferred Stock, the rights, privileges, restrictions and conditions attaching to the Series I Class A Preferred Stock: may be amended by an amendment to the Corporation’s Certificate of Incorporation so as to affect such adversely only if the Corporation has obtained the affirmative vote at a duly called and held series meeting of the holders of the Series I Class A Preferred Stock or written consent by the holders of a majority of the Series I Class A Preferred Stock then outstanding. Notwithstanding the above, the number of authorized shares of such class or classes of stock may be increased or decreased (but not below the number of shares thereof outstanding) by the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the stock of the Corporation entitled to vote thereon, voting as a single class, irrespective of this Section 7.1.

 -5- 

 

 

5.3 The conversion right granted by Section 5.2 hereof may be exercised only by an Eligible Holder of Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock, in whole or in part, by the surrender of the share certificate or share certificates representing the Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock to be converted at the principal office of the Corporation (or at such other place as the Corporation may designate in a written notice sent to the holder by first class mail, postage prepaid, at its address shown on the books of the Corporation) against delivery of that number of whole Common Shares as shall be computed by dividing (1) the aggregate Value of the Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock so surrendered for conversion plus any accrued but unpaid dividends thereon, if any, by (2) the Conversion Price in effect at the date of the conversion. At the time of conversion of a share of the Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock, the Corporation shall pay in cash to the holder thereof an amount equal to all unpaid dividends, if any, accrued thereon to the date of conversion, or, at the Corporation’s option, issue that number of whole Common Shares which is equal to the product of dividing the amount of such unpaid dividends by the Average Stock Price whether or not declared by the Board. Each Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock share certificate surrendered for conversion shall be endorsed by its holder. In the event of any exercise of the conversion right of the Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock granted herein (i) share certificate representing the Common Shares purchased by virtue of such exercise shall be delivered to such holder within three (3) days of notice of conversion, and (ii) unless the Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock has been fully converted, a new share certificate representing the Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock not so converted, if any, shall also be delivered to such holder within three (3) days of notice of conversion. Any Eligible Holder may exercise its right to convert the Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock by telecopying an executed and completed Notice of Conversion to the Corporation, and within seventy-two (72) hours thereafter, delivering the original Notice of Conversion and the certificate representing the Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock to the Corporation by express courier. Each date on which a Notice of Conversion is telecopied to and received by the Corporation in accordance with the provisions hereof shall be deemed a conversion date. The Corporation will transmit the Common Shares certificates issuable upon conversion of any Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock (together with the certificates representing the Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock not so converted) to the Eligible Holder via express courier within three (3) business days after the conversion date if the Corporation has received the original Notice of Conversion and the Series 2 Class B Shares certificates being so converted by such date.

 

5.4 All Common Shares which may be issued upon conversion of Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock will, upon issuance, be duly issued, fully paid and nonassessable and free from all taxes, liens, and charges with respect to the issue thereof. At all times that any Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock is outstanding, the Corporation shall have authorized, and shall have reserved for the purpose of issuance upon such conversion, a sufficient number of Common Shares to provide for the conversion into Common Shares of all Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock then outstanding at the then effective Conversion Price. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, if, at any time, the Conversion Price is decreased, the number of Common Shares authorized and reserved for issuance upon the conversion of the Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock shall be proportionately increased.

5.5 The number of Common Shares issued upon conversion of Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock and the Conversion Price shall be subject to adjustment from time to time upon the happening of certain events, as follows;

 

5.5.1 In the case of any amendment to the Articles to change the designation of the Common Shares or the rights, privileges, restrictions or conditions in respect of the Common Shares or division of the Common Shares into series the rights of the holders of the Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock shall be adjusted so as to provide that upon conversion thereof, the holder of the Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock being converted shall procure, in lieu of each Common Share theretofore issuable upon such conversion, the kind and amount of shares, other securities, money and property receivable upon such designation, change or division by the holder of one Common Share issuable upon such conversion had conversion occurred immediately prior to such designation, change or division. The Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock shall be deemed thereafter to provide for adjustments which shall be as nearly equivalent as may be practicable to the adjustments provided for in this Part 5. The provisions of this subsection 5.5.1 shall apply in the same manner to successive reclassifications, changes, consolidations, and mergers.

 

5.5.2 If the Corporation, at any time while any of the Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock is outstanding, shall amend the Articles so as to change the Common Shares into a different number of shares, the Conversion Price shall be proportionately reduced, in ease of such change increasing the number of Common Shares, as of the effective date of such increase, or if the Corporation shall take a record of holders of its Common Shares for the purpose of such increase, as of such record date, whichever is earlier, or the Conversion Price shall be proportionately increased, in the case of such change decreasing the number of Common Shares, as of the effective date of such decrease or, if the Corporation shall take a record of holders of its Common Stock for the purpose of such decrease, as of such record date, whichever is earlier.

 

5.5.3 If the Corporation, at any time while any of the Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock is outstanding, shall pay a dividend payable in Common Shares (except for any dividends of Common Shares payable pursuant to Part 3 hereof), the Conversion Price shall be adjusted, as of the date the Corporation shall take a record of the holders of its Common Shares for the purposes of receiving such dividend (or if no such record is taken, as of the date of payment of such dividend), to that price determined by multiplying the Conversion Price therefor in effect by a fraction (1) the numerator of which shall be the total number of Common Shares outstanding immediately prior to such dividend, and (2) the denominator of which shall be the total number of Common Shares outstanding immediately after such dividend (plus in the event that the Corporation paid cash for fractional shares, the number of additional shares which would have been outstanding had the Corporation issued fractional shares in connection with said dividend).

 

 -7- 

 

 

5.6 Whenever the Conversion Price shall be adjusted pursuant to Section 5.5 hereof, the Corporation shall make a certificate signed by its President, or a Vice President and by its Treasurer, Assistant Treasurer, Secretary or Assistant Secretary, setting forth, in reasonable detail, the event requiring the adjustment, the amount of the adjustment, the method by which such adjustment was calculated (including a description of the basis on which the Board of Directors made any determination hereunder), and the Conversion Price after giving effect to such adjustment, and shall cause copies of such certificates to be mailed (by first class mail, postage prepaid) to each holder of the Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock at its address shown on the books of the Corporation. The Corporation shall make such certificate and mail it to each such holder promptly after each adjustment.

 

5.7 No fractional Common Shares shall be issued in connection with any conversion of Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock, but in lieu of such fractional shares, the Corporation shall make a cash payment therefor equal in amount to the product of the applicable fraction multiplied by the Conversion Price then in effect.

 

5.8 No Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock which has been converted into Common Shares shall be reissued by the Corporation; provided, however, that each such share shall be restored to the status of authorized but unissued Preferred Stock without designation as to series and may thereafter be issued as a series of Preferred Stock not designated as Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock.

 

Part 6 - Parity with Other Shares of Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock and Priority.

 

6.1 If any cumulative dividends or accounts payable or return of capital in respect of Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock are not paid in full, the owners of all series of outstanding Preferred Stock shall participate rateably in respect of accumulated dividends and return of capital.

 

6.2 For purposes of this resolution, any stock of any class or series of the Corporation shall be deemed to rank:

 

6.2.1 Prior or senior to the shares of this Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock either as to dividends of upon liquidation, if the holders of such class or classes shall be entitled to the receipt of dividends or of amounts distributable upon dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Corporation. whether voluntary or involuntary, as the case may be, in preference or priority to the holders of shares of this Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock;

 

6.2.2 On a parity with, or equal to, shares of this Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock, either as to dividends or upon liquidation, whether or not the dividend rates, dividend payment dates, or redemption or liquidation prices per share or sinking fund provisions, if any, are different from those of this Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock, if the holders of such stock are entitled to the receipt of dividends or of amounts distributable upon dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Corporation, whether voluntary or involuntary, in proportion to their respective dividend rates or liquidation prices, without preference or priority, one over the other, as between the holders of such stock and over the other, as between the holders of such stock and the holders of shares of this Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock; and.

 

 -8- 

 

 

6.2.3 Junior to shares of this Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock, either as to dividends or upon liquidation, if such class or series shall be Common Shares or if the holders of shares of this Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock shall be entitled to receipt of dividends or of amounts distributable upon dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Corporation, whether voluntary or involuntary, as the case may be, in preference or priority to the holders of shares of such class or series.

 

Part 7 - Amendment.

 

7.1 In addition to any requirement for a series vote pursuant to the GCL in respect of any amendment to the Articles that adversely affects the rights, privileges, restrictions and conditions of the Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock, the rights, privileges, restrictions and conditions attaching to the Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock may be amended by an amendment to the Corporation’s Certificate of Incorporation so as to affect such adversely only if the Corporation has obtained the affirmative vote at a duly called and held series meeting of the holders of the Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock or written consent by the holders of a majority of the Series 2 Class B Preferred Stock then outstanding. Notwithstanding the above, the number of authorized shares of such class or classes of stock may be increased or decreased (but not below the number of shares thereof outstanding) by the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority or the stock of the Corporation entitled to vote thereon, voting together as a single class, irrespective of this Section 7.1.

Holders of the Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock shall be entitled to notice of (and copies of proxy materials and other information sent to stockholders) for all shareholder meetings or written consents with respect to which they would be entitled to vote, which notice would be provided pursuant to the Corporation’s bylaws and applicable statutes.

Part 2 - Liquidation Rights.

Part 3 - Dividends.

 

3.1 The holders of the Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock are entitled to receive if, when and as declared by the Board out of funds legally available therefor, cumulative dividends, payable in cash or Common Stock of the Corporation, par value $.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), at the Corporation’s election, at the rate of six percent (6%) per annum of the Liquidation Value of the Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock. The Liquidation Value of the Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock shall be $1,000.00 per share (the “Dividend Rate”). The dividend is payable semi-annually within seven (7) business days after each of December 31 and June 30 of each year, commencing December 31, 1996 (each, a “Dividend Declaration Date”). Dividends shall be paid only with respect to shares of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock actually issued and outstanding on a Dividend Declaration Date and to holders of record as of the Dividend Declaration Date, Dividends shall accrue from the first day of the semi-annual period in which such dividend may be payable, except with respect to the first semi-annual dividend which shall accrue from the date of issuance of the Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock. In the event that the Corporation elects to pay dividends in Common Stock of the Corporation, each holder of the Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock shall receive shares of Common Stock of the Corporation equal to the quotient of (i) the Dividend Rate in effect on the applicable Dividend Declaration Date dividend by (ii) the average of the closing bid quotation of the Common Stock as reported on the over-the-counter market, or the closing sale price if listed on a national securities exchange, for the five (5) trading days immediately prior to the Dividend Declaration Date (the “Stock Dividend Price”). Dividends on the Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock shall be cumulative, and no dividend or other distributions shall be paid or declared or set aside for payment on the Common Stock until all accrued and unpaid dividends on all outstanding shares of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock shall have been paid or declared and set aside for payment.

 

Part 4 - Conversion. The holders of the Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock shall have rights to convert the shares of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock into shares of the Corporation’s Common Stock, par value $.001 per share (“Common Stock”), as follows (the “Conversion Rights”):

 

4.1 Right to Convert. The Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock shall be convertible into shares of Common Stock, as follows:

 

  4.1.1 Up to one thousand eight hundred thirty-three (1,833) shares of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock may be converted at the Conversion Price (as that term is defined in Section 4.2 below) at any time on or after October 1, 1996;

 

 -3- 

 

 

  4.1.2 Up to one thousand eight hundred thirty-three (1,833) shares of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock may be converted at the Conversion Price at any time on or after November 1, 1996; and,
     
  4.1.3 Up to one thousand eight hundred thirty-four (1,854) shares of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock may be converted at the Conversion Price on or after December 1, 1996.

 

4.2 Conversion Price. As used herein, the term Conversion Price shall be the product of (i) the average closing bid quotation of the Common Stock as reported on the over-the-counter market, or the closing sale price if listed on a national securities exchange, for the five (5) trading days immediately preceding the date of the Conversion Notice referred to in Section 4.3 below multiplied by (ii) seventy-five percent (75%). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Conversion Price shall not be (i) less than a minimum of $.75 per share (“Minimum Conversion Price”) or (ii) more than a maximum of $1.50 per share (“Maximum Conversion Price”). If, after July 1, 1996, the Corporation sustains a net loss, on a consolidated basis, in each of two (2) consecutive quarters, as determined under generally accepted accounting principles, the Minimum Conversion Price shall be reduced $.25 a share, but there shall be no change to, or reduction of, the Maximum Convention Price. For the purpose of determining whether the Corporation has had a net loss in each of two (2) consecutive quarters, at no time shall a quarter that has already been considered in such determination be considered in any subsequent determination (as an example the third quarter of 1996 in which there is a net profit and the fourth quarter of 1996 in which there is a net loss shall be considered as two consecutive quarters, and, as a result, the fourth quarter of 1996 shall not be considered along with the first quarter of 1997 as two (2) consecutive quarters, but the first quarter of 1997 must be considered with the second quarter of 1997 for the purposes of such determination). For the purposes of this Section 4.2, a “quarter” is a three (3) month period ending on March 31, June 30, September 30, and December 31. If any of the outstanding shares of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock are converted, in whole or in part, into Common Stock pursuant to the terms of this Part 4, the number of shares of whole Common Stock to be issued to the holder as a result of such conversion shall be determined by dividing (a) the aggregate Liquidation Value of the Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock so surrendered for conversion by (b) the Conversion Price in effect at the date of the conversion. At the time of conversion of shares of the Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock, the Corporation shall pay in cash to the holder thereof an amount equal to all unpaid and accrued dividends, if any, accrued thereon to the date of conversion, or, at the Corporation’s option, in lieu of paying cash for the accrued and unpaid dividends, issue that number of shares of whole Common Stock which is equal to the product of dividing the amount of such unpaid and accrued dividends to the date of conversion on the shares of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock so converted by the Conversion Price in effect at the date of conversion.

 

 -4- 

 

 

4.3 Mechanics of Conversion. Any holder of the Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock who wishes to exercise its Conversion Rights pursuant to Section 4.1 of this Part 4 must, if such shares are not being held in escrow by the Corporation’s attorneys, surrender the certificate therefor at the principal executive office of the Corporation, and give written notice, which may be via facsimile transmission, to the Corporation at such office that it elects to convert the same (the “Conversion Notice”). In the event that the shares of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock are being held in escrow by the Corporation’s attorneys, no delivery of the certificates shall be required. No Conversion Notice with respect to any shares of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock can be given prior to the time such shares of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock are eligible for conversion in accordance with the provision of Section 4.1 above. Any such premature Conversion Notice shall automatically be null and void. The Corporation shall, within five (5) business days after receipt of an appropriate and timely Conversion Notice (and certificate, if necessary), issue to such holder of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock or its agent a certificate for the number of shares of Common Stock to which he shall be entitled; it being expressly agreed that until and unless the holder delivers written notice to the Corporation to the contrary, all shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock hereunder are to be delivered by the Corporation to a party designated in writing by the holder in the Conversion Notice for the account of the holder and such shall be deemed valid delivery to the holder of such shares of Common Stock. Such conversion shall be deemed to have been made only after both the certificate for the shares of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock to be converted have been surrendered and the Conversion Notice is received by the Corporation (or in the event that no surrender of the Certificate is required, then only upon the receipt by the Corporation of the Conversion Note) (the “Conversion Documents”), and the person or entity whose name is noted on the certificate evidencing such shares of Common Stock issuable upon such conversion shall be treated for all purposes as the record holder of such shares of Common Stock at and after such time. In the event that the Conversion Notice is sent via facsimile transmission, the Corporation shall be deemed to have received such Conversion Notice on the first business day on which such facsimile Conversion Notice is actually received. If the Corporation fails to deliver to the holder or its agent the certificate representing the shares of Common Stock that the holder is entitled to receive as a result of such conversion within five (5) business days after receipt by the Corporation from the holder of an appropriate and timely Conversion Notice and certificates pursuant to the terms of this Section 4.3, the Corporation shall pay to the holder U.S. $1.000 for each day that the Corporation is late in delivering such certificate to the holder or its agent.

 

4.4 Adjustments to Conversion Price for Stock Dividends and for Combinations or Subdivisions of Common Stock. If the Corporation at any time or from time to time while shares of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock are issued and outstanding shall declare or pay, without consideration, any dividend on the Common Stock payable in Common Stock, or shall effect a subdivision of the outstanding shares of Common Stock into a greater number of shares of Common Stock (by stock split, reclassification or otherwise than by payment of a dividend in Common Stock or in any right to acquire Common Stock), or if the outstanding shares of Common Stock shall be combined or consolidated, by reclassification or otherwise, into a lesser number of shares of Common Stock, then the Conversion Price in effect immediately before such event shall, concurrently with the effectiveness of such event, be proportionately decreased or increased, as appropriate. If the Corporation shall declare or pay, without consideration, any dividend on the Common Stock payable in any right to acquire Common stock for no consideration, then the Corporation shall be deemed to have made a dividend payable in Common Stock in an amount of shares equal to the maximum number of shares issuable upon exercise of such rights to acquire Common Stock.

 

 -5- 

 

 

4.5. Adjustments for Reclassification and Reorganization. If the Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock shall be changed into the same or a different number of shares of any other class or classes of stock, whether by capital reorganization, reclassification or otherwise (other than a subdivision or combination of shares provided for in Section 4.4 hereof), the Conversion Price then in effect shall, concurrently with the effectiveness of such reorganization or reclassification, be proportionately adjusted so that the Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock shall be convertible into, in lieu of the number of shares of Common Stock which the holders of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock would otherwise have been entitled to receive, a number of shares of such other class or classes of stock equivalent to the number of shares of Common Stock that would have been subject to receipt by the holders upon conversion of the Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock immediately before that change.

 

4.6 Common Stock Duly Issued. All Common Stock which may be issued upon conversion of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock will, upon issuance, be duly issued, fully paid and nonassessable and free from all taxes, liens, and charges with respect to the issue thereof.

 

4.7 Notice of Adjustments. Upon the occurrence of each adjustment or readjustment of any Conversion Price pursuant to this Part 4, the Corporation, at its expense, within a reasonable period of time, shall compute such adjustment or readjustment in accordance with the terms hereof and prepare and furnish to each holder of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock a notice setting forth such adjustment or readjustment and showing in detail the facts upon which such adjustment is based.

 

4.8 Issue Taxes. The Corporation shall pay any and all issue and other taxes that may be payable in respect of any issue or delivery of shares of Common Stock on conversion of the Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock pursuant thereto; provided, however, that the Corporation shall not be obligated to pay any transfer taxes resulting from any transfer requested by any holder of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock in connection with such conversion.

 

4.9 Reservation of Stock Issuable Upon Conversion. The Corporation shall at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock, solely for the purpose of effecting the conversion of the shares of the Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock, such number of its shares of Common Stock as shall, from time to time, be sufficient to effect the conversion of all outstanding shares of the Series 3 Class C Preferred stock, and, if at any time, the number of authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock shall not be sufficient to effect the conversion of all then outstanding shares of the Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock, the Corporation will take such corporate action as may be necessary to increase its authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock to such number of shares as shall be sufficient for such purposes, including, without limitation, engaging in reasonable efforts to obtain the requisite stockholder approval of any necessary amendment to its Certificate of Incorporation.

 

 -6- 

 

 

4.10 Fractional Shares. No fractional share shall be issued upon the conversion of any share or shares of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock. All shares of Common Stock (including fractions thereof) issuable upon conversion of more than one share of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock by a holder thereof shall be aggregated for purposes of determining whether the conversion would result in the issuance of any fractional share. If after the aforementioned aggregation, the conversion would result in the Issuance of a fractional share of Common Stock, such fractional share shall be rounded up to the nearest whole share,

 

4.11 Notice. Any notices required by the provisions of this Part 4 to be given to the holders of shares of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock shall be deemed given if deposited in the United States mail, postage prepaid, and addressed to each holder of record at his address appearing on the books of the Corporation.

 

4.12 Business Day. As used herein, the term “business day” shall mean any day other than a Saturday, Sunday or a day when the federal and state banks located in the State of New York are required or permitted to close.

 

Part 5 - Redemption.

 

5.1 Redemption During First 180 Days. At any time, and from time to time, during the first one hundred eighty (180) days from the date of issuance of the Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock, the Corporation may, at its sole option, but shall not be obligated to, redeem, in whole or in part, the then outstanding Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock at a price per share of U. S. $1,300.00 each (“First Six Months Redemption Price”). The Company may exercise such redemption by giving the holder of the Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock written notice of such redemption at any time during such 180-day period.

 

5.2 Other Rights of Redemption by the Corporation. At any time, and from time to time, after one hundred eighty (180) days from the date of the issuance of any Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock, if the average of the closing bid price of the Common Stock for ten (10) consecutive days shall be in excess of $2.50 per share, the Corporation may, at its sole option, but shall not be obligated to, redeem, in whole or in part, the then outstanding Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock at a price per share of U.S. $1,000 each (the “Redemption Price”) (such price to be adjusted proportionately in the event of any change of the Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock into a different number of shares of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock).

 

5.3 Mechanics of Redemption. Thirty (30) days prior to any date stipulated by the Corporation for the redemption of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock (the “Redemption Date”), written notice (the “Redemption Notice”) shall be mailed to each holder of record on such notice date of the Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock. The Redemption Notice shall state; (i) the Redemption Date of such shares, (ii) the number of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock to be redeemed from the holder to whom the Redemption Notice is addressed, (iii) instructions for surrender to the Corporation, in the manner and at the place designated, of a share certificate or share certificates representing the number of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock to be redeemed from such holder, and (iv) instructions as to how to specify to the Corporation the number of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock to be redeemed as provided in this Part 5 and, if the Redemption Notice is mailed to the Holder after the first one hundred eighty (180) days from the date of issuance of the Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock, the number of shares to be converted into Common Stock as provided in Part 4 hereof.

If the redemption occurs pursuant to Section 5.2 hereof, then, upon receipt of the Redemption Notice, any holder of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock shall have the option, at its sole election, to specify what portion of its Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock called for redemption in the Redemption Notice shall be redeemed as provided in this Part 5 or converted into Common Stock in the manner provided in Part 4 hereof, except that, notwithstanding any provision of such Part 4 to the contrary, such holder shall have the right to convert into Common Stock that number of Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock called for redemption in the Redemption Notice.

 

5.5 Surrender of Certificates. On or before the Redemption Date in respect of any Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock, each holder of such shares shall surrender the required certificate or certificates representing such shares to the Corporation in the manner and at the place designated in the Redemption Notice, and upon the Redemption Date, the Redemption Price for such shares shall be made payable, in the manner provided in Section 5.5 hereof, to the order of the person whose name appears on such certificate or certificates as the owner thereof, and each surrendered share certificate shall be canceled and retired. If a share certificate is surrendered and all the shares evidenced thereby are not being redeemed (as described below), the Corporation shall cause the Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock which are not being redeemed to be registered in the names of the persons or entity whose names appear as the owners on the respective surrendered share certificates and deliver such certificate to such person.

 

5.6 Payment. On the Redemption Date in respect of any Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock or prior thereto, the Corporation shall deposit with any bank or trust company having a capital and surplus of at least U.S. $50,000,000, as a trust fund, a sum equal to the aggregate First Six Months Redemption Price or the Redemption Price, whichever is applicable, of all such shares called from redemption (less the aggregate Redemption Price for those Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock in respect of which the Corporation has received notice from the holder thereof of its election to convert Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock into Common Stock), with irrevocable instructions and authority to the bank or trust company to pay, on or after the Redemption Date, the First Six Months Redemption Price or the Redemption Price, whichever is applicable, to the respective holders upon the surrender of their share certificates. The deposit shall constitute full payment for the shares to their holders, and from and after the date of the deposit the redeemed shares shall be deemed to be no longer outstanding, and holders thereof shall cease to be shareholders with respect to such shares and shall have no rights with respect thereto except the rights to receive from the bank or trust company payments of the First Six Months Redemption Price or the Redemption Price, whichever is applicable, of the shares, without interest, upon surrender of their certificates thereof. Any funds so deposited and unclaimed at the end of one year following the Redemption Date shall be released or repaid to the Corporation, after which the former holders of shares called for redemption shall be entitled to receive payment of the First Six Months Redemption Price or the Redemption Price, whichever is applicable, in respect of their shares only from the Corporation.

1.2 No Preemptive Rights. The Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock shall not give its holders any preemptive rights to acquire any other securities issued by the Corporation at any time in the future.

 

Part 2 - Liquidation Rights.

 

2.1 Liquidation. If the Corporation shall be voluntarily or involuntarily liquidated, dissolved or wound up at any time when any shares of the Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock shall be outstanding, the holders of the then outstanding Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock shall have a preference in distribution of the Corporation’s property available for distribution to the holders of the Corporation’s Common Stock equal to $1,000 consideration per outstanding share of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock, plus an amount equal to all unpaid dividends accrued thereon to the date of payment of such distribution (“Liquidation Preference”), whether or not declared by the Board.

 

2.2 Payment of Liquidation Preferences. Subject to the provisions of Part 6 hereof, all amounts to be paid as Liquidation Preference to the holders of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock, as provided in this Part 2, shall be paid or set apart for payment before the payment or setting apart for payment of any amount for, or the distribution of any of the Corporation’s property to the holders of the Corporation’s Common Stock, whether now or hereafter authorized, in connection with such liquidation, dissolution or winding up.

Part 3 - Dividends.

 

3.1 The holders of the Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock are entitled to receive if, when and as declared by the Board out of funds legally available therefor, cumulative dividends, payable in cash or Common Stock of the Corporation, par value $.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), or any combination thereof, at the Corporation’s election, at the rate of four percent (4%) per annum of the Liquidation Value (as defined below) of each issued and outstanding share of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock (the “Dividend Rate”). The Liquidation Value of the Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock shall be $1.000 per outstanding share of the Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock (the “Liquidation Value”). The dividend is payable semi-annually within seven (7) business days after each of December 31 and June 30 of each year, commencing December 31, 1997 (each, a “Dividend Declaration Date”). Dividends shall be paid only with respect to shares of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock actually issued and outstanding on a Dividend Declaration Date and to holders of record of the Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock as of the Dividend Declaration Date. Dividends shall accrue from the first day of the semi-annual period in which such dividend may be payable, except with respect to the first semi-annual dividend which shall accrue from the date of issuance of the Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock. In the event that the Corporation elects to pay the accrued dividends due as of a Dividend Declaration Date on an outstanding share of the Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock in Common Stock of the Corporation, the holder of such share shall receive that number of shares of Common Stock of the Corporation equal to the product of (a) the quotient of (i) the Dividend Rate divided by (ii) the average of the closing bid quotation of the Corporation’s Common Stock as reported on the National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotation system (“NASDAQ”), or the average closing sale price if listed on a national securities exchange, for the five (5) trading days immediately prior to the Dividend Declaration Date (the “Stock Dividend Price”), times (b) a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of days elapsed during the period for which the dividend is to be paid, and the denominator of which is 365. Dividends on the Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock shall be cumulative, and no dividends or other distributions shall be paid or declared or set aside for payment on the Corporation’s Common Stock until all accrued and unpaid dividends on all outstanding shares of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock shall have been paid or declared and set aside for payment.

 

Part 4 - Conversion. The holders of the Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock shall have rights to convert the shares of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock into shares of the Corporation’s Common Stock, par value $.001 per share (“Common Stock”), as follows (the “Conversion Rights”):

 

4.1 Right to Convert. The Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock shall be convertible into shares of Common Stock, as follows:

 

  4.1.1 Up to one thousand two hundred fifty (1,250) shares of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock may be converted at the Conversion Price (as that term is defined in Section 4.2 below) at any time on or after October 5, 1997; and,

 

-4-

 

 

  4.1.2 Up to an additional one thousand two hundred fifty (1,250) shares of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock may be converted at the Conversion Price at any time on or after November 5, 1997.

 

4.2 Conversion Price. Subject to the terms hereof, as used herein, the term Conversion Price per outstanding share of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock shall be the product of the lesser of (i) the average closing bid quotation of the Common Stock as reported on the over-the-counter market, or the closing sale price if listed on a national securities exchange, for the five (5) trading days immediately preceding the date of the Conversion Notice referred to in Section 4.3 below multiplied by eighty percent (80%) or (ii) U.S. $1.6875. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Conversion Price shall not be less than a minimum of $.75 per share (“Minimum Conversion Price”), which Minimum Conversion Price shall be eliminated from and after September 6, 1998. If any of the outstanding shares of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock are converted, in whole or in part, into Common Stock pursuant to the terms of this Part 4, the number of shares of whole Common Stock to be issued to the holder as a result of such conversion shall be determined by dividing (a) the aggregate Liquidation Value of the Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock so surrendered for conversion by (b) the Conversion Price in effect at the date of the conversion. At the time of conversion of shares of the Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock, the Corporation shall pay in cash to the holder thereof an amount equal to all unpaid and accrued dividends, if any, accrued thereon to the date of conversion, or, at the Corporation’s option, in lieu of paying cash for the accrued and unpaid dividends, issue that number of shares of whole Common Stock which is equal to the quotient of the amount of such unpaid and accrued dividends to the date of conversion on the shares of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock so converted divided by the Stock Dividend Price, as defined in Section 3.1 hereof, in effect at the date of conversion.

 

-5-

 

 

4.3 Mechanics of Conversion. Any holder of the Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock who wishes to exercise its Conversion Rights pursuant to Section 4.1 of this Part 4 must, if such shares are not being held in escrow by the Corporation’s attorneys, surrender the certificate therefor at the principal executive office of the Corporation, and give written notice, which may be via facsimile transmission, to the Corporation at such office that it elects to convert the same (the “Conversion Notice”). In the event that the shares of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock are being held in escrow by the Corporation’s attorneys, no delivery of the certificates shall be required. No Conversion Notice with respect to any shares of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock can be given prior to the time such shares of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock are eligible for conversion in accordance with the provision of Section 4.1 above, except as provided in Section 4.4. Any such premature Conversion Notice shall automatically be null and void. The Corporation shall, within five (5) business days after receipt of an appropriate and timely Conversion Notice (and certificate, if necessary), issue to such holder of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock or its agent a certificate for the number of shares of Common Stock to which he shall be entitled; it being expressly agreed that, until and unless the holder delivers written notice to the Corporation to the contrary, all shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock hereunder are to be delivered by the Corporation to a party designated in writing by the holder in the Conversion Notice for the account of the holder and such shall be deemed valid delivery to the holder of such shares of Common Stock. Such conversion shall be deemed to have been made only after both the certificate for the shares of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock to be converted have been surrendered and the Conversion Notice is received by the Corporation (or in the event that no surrender of the Certificate is required, then only upon the receipt by the Corporation of Use Conversion Notice) (the “Conversion Documents”), and the person or entity whose name is noted on the certificate evidencing such shares or Common Stock issuable upon such conversion shall be treated for all purposes as the record holder of such shares of Common Stock at and after such time. In the event that the Conversion Notice is sent via facsimile transmission, the Corporation shall be deemed to have received such Conversion Notice on the first business day on which such facsimile Conversion Notice is actually received. If the Corporation fails to deliver to the holder or its agent the certificate representing the shares of Common Stock that the holder is entitled to receive as a result of such conversion within seven (7) business days after receipt by the Corporation from the holder of an appropriate and timely Conversion Notice and certificates pursuant to the terms of this Section 4.3 (“Seven (7) Business Day Period”), then, upon the written demand of RBB Bank Aktiengesellschaft (“RBB Bank”), the holder of the Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock, for payment of the penalty described below in this Section 4.3, which demand must be received by the Corporation no later than ten (10) calendar days after the expiration of such Seven (7) Business Day Period, the Corporation shall pay to RBB Bank the following penalty for each business day after the Seven (7) Business Day Period until the Corporation delivers to the holder or its agent the certificate representing the shares of Common Stock that the holder is entitled to receive as a result of such conversion: business day eight (8) - U.S. $1,000: business day nine (9) - U.S. $2,000, and each business day thereafter an amount equal to the penalty due on the immediately preceding business day times two (2) until the Corporation delivers to the holder or its agent the certificate representing the shares of Common Stock that the holder is entitled to receive as a result of such conversion.
   
4.4 Merger or Consolidation. In case of either (a) any merger or consolidation to which the Corporation is a party (collectively, the “Merger”), other than a Merger in which the Corporation is the surviving or continuing corporation, or (b) any sale or conveyance to another corporation of all, or substantially all, of the assets of the Corporation (collectively. the “Sale”), and such Merger or Sale becomes effective (x) while any shares of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock are outstanding and prior to the date that the Corporation’s Registration Statement covering up to 1,482,000 shares of Common Stock issuable upon the conversion of the Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock is declared effective by the U. S. Securities and Exchange Commission or (y) prior to the end of the restriction periods in Section 4.1, then, in such event, the Corporation or such successor corporation, as the cast may be, shall make appropriate provision so that the holder of each share of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock then outstanding shall have the right to convert such share of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock into the kind and amount of shares of stock or other securities and property receivable upon such Merger or Sale by a holder of the number of shares of Common Stock into which such shares of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock could have been convened into immediately prior to such Merger or Sale, subject to adjustments which shall be as nearly equivalent as may be practicable to the adjustments provided for in this Part 4.

 

-6-

 

 

4.4 Adjustments to Conversion Price for Stock Dividends and for Combinations or Subdivisions of Common Stock. If the Corporation at any time or from time to time while shares of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock are issued and outstanding shall declare or pay, without consideration, any dividend on the Common Stock payable in Common Stock, or shall effect a subdivision of the outstanding shares of Common Stock into a greater number of shares of Common Stock (by stock split, reclassification or otherwise than by payment of a dividend in Common Stock or in any right to acquire Common Stock), or if the outstanding shares of Common Stock shall be combined or consolidated, by reclassification or otherwise, into a lesser number of shares of Common Stock, then the Conversion Price in effect immediately before such event shall, concurrently with the effectiveness of such event, be proportionately decreased or increased, as appropriate.
   
4.5 Adjustments for Reclassification and Reorganization. If the Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock shall be changed into the same or a different number of shares of any other class or classes of stock, whether by capital reorganization, reclassification or otherwise (other than a subdivision or combination of shares provided for in Section 4.4 hereof), the Conversion Price then in effect shall, concurrently with the effectiveness of such reorganization or reclassification, be proportionately adjusted so that the Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock shall be convertible into, in lieu of the number of shares of Common Stock which the holders of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock would otherwise have been entitled to receive, a number of shares of such other class or classes of stock equivalent to the number of shares of Common Stock that would have been subject to receipt by the holders upon conversion of the Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock immediately before that change.
   
4.6 Common Stock Duly Issued. All Common Stock which may be issued upon conversion of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock will, upon issuance, be duly issued, fully paid and nonassessable and free from all taxes, liens, and charges with respect to the issue thereof.
   
4.7 Notice of Adjustments. Upon the occurrence of each adjustment or readjustment of any Conversion Price pursuant to this Part 4, the Corporation, at its expense, within a reasonable period of time, shall compute such adjustment or readjustment in accordance with the terms hereof and prepare and furnish to each holder of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock a notice setting forth such adjustment or readjustment and showing in detail the facts upon which such adjustment is based.

 

-7-

 

 

4.8 Issue Taxes. The Corporation shall pay any and all issue and other taxes that may be payable in respect of any issue or delivery of shares of Common Stock on conversion of the Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock pursuant thereto; provided, however, that the Corporation shall not be obligated to pay any transfer taxes resulting from any transfer requested by toy holder of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock in connection with such conversion.
   
4.9 Reservation of Stock Issuable Upon Conversion. The Corporation shall at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock, solely for the purpose of effecting the conversion of the shares of the Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock, such number of its shares of Common Stock as shall, from time to time, be sufficient to effect the conversion of all outstanding shares of the Series 4 Class D Preferred stock, and, if at any time, the number of authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock shall not be sufficient to effect the conversion of all then outstanding shares of the Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock, the Corporation will take such corporate action as may be necessary to increase its authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock to such number of shares as shall be sufficient for such purposes, including, without limitation, engaging in reasonable efforts to obtain the requisite stockholder approval of any necessary amendment to its Certificate of Incorporation.
   
4.10 Fractional Shares. No fractional shares shall be issued upon the conversion of any share or shares of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock. All shares of Common Stock (including fractions thereof) issuable upon conversion of more than one share of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock by a holder thereof shall be aggregated for purposes of determining whether the conversion would result in the issuance of any fractional share. If, after the aforementioned aggregation, the conversion would result in the issuance of a fractional share of Common Stock, such fractional share shall be rounded up to the nearest whole share.
   
4.11 Notices. Any notices required by the provisions of this Part 4 to be given to the holders of shares of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock shall be deemed given if deposited in the United States mail, postage prepaid, and addressed to each holder of record at his address appearing on the books of the Corporation.
   
4.12 Business Day. As used herein, the term “business day” shall mean any day other than a Saturday, Sunday or a day when the federal and state banks located in the State of New York axe required or is permitted to close.

 

Part 5 - Redemption.

 

5.1 Redemption at Corporation’s Option. Except as otherwise provided in this Section 5.1, at any time, and from time to time, after the expiration of one (1) year from the date of the first issuance of the Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock, the Corporation may, at its sole option, but shall not be obligated to, redeem, in whole or in part, at any time, and from time to time, the then outstanding Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock at the following cash redemption prices per share (the “Redemption Price”) if redeemed during the following periods: (a) within four (4) years from the date of the first issuance of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock - $1,300 per share, if at any time during such four (4) year period the average of the closing bid price of the Common Stock for ten (10) consecutive trading days shall be in excess of Four U.S. Dollars ($4.00) per share, and (b) after four (4) years from the date of the first issuance of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock - $1,000 per share.

5.3 Mechanics of Redemption. Thirty (30) days prior to any date stipulated by the Corporation for the redemption of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock (the “Redemption Date”), written notice (the “Redemption Notice”) shall be mailed to each holder of record on such notice date of the Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock. The Redemption Notice shall state: (i) the Redemption Date of such shares, (ii) the number of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock to be redeemed from the holder to whom the Redemption Notice is addressed, (iii) instructions for surrender to the Corporation, in the manner and at the place designated, of a share certificate or share certificates representing the number of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock to be redeemed from such holder, and (iv) instructions as to how to specify to the Corporation the number of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock to be redeemed as provided in this Part 5 and, if the Redemption Notice is mailed to the Holder after the first one hundred eighty (180) days from the date of issuance of the Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock, the number of shares to be converted into Common Stock as provided in Part 4 hereof.
   
5.4 Rights of Conversion Upon Redemption. If the redemption occurs after the first one hundred eighty (180) days after the first issuance of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock, then, upon receipt of the Redemption Notice, any holder of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock shall have the option, at its sole election, to specify what portion of its Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock called for redemption in the Redemption Notice shall be redeemed as provided in this Part 5 or converted into Common Stock in the manner provided in Part 4 hereof, except that, notwithstanding any provision of such Part 4 to the contrary, such holder shall have the right to convert into Common Stock that number of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock called for redemption in the Redemption Notice.
   
5.5 Surrender of Certificates. On or before the Redemption Date in respect of any Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock, each holder of such shares shall surrender the required certificate or certificates representing such shares to the Corporation in the manner and at the place designated in the Redemption Notice, and upon the Redemption Date, the Redemption Price for such shares shall be made payable, in the manner provided in Section 5.6 hereof, to the order of the person whose name appears on such certificate or certificates as the owner thereof, and each surrendered share certificate shall be canceled and retired. If a share certificate is surrendered and all the shares evidenced thereby are not being redeemed (as described below), the Corporation shall cause the Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock which are not being redeemed to be registered in the names of the persons or entity whose names appear as the owners on the respective surrendered share certificates and deliver such certificate to such person.

  6.2.2 On a parity with, or equal to, shares of this Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock, either as to dividends or upon liquidation, whether or not the dividend rates, dividend payment dates, or redemption or liquidation prices per share or sinking fund provisions, if any, are different from those of this Series 4 Class C Preferred Stock, if the holders of such stock are entitled to the receipt of dividends or of amounts distributable upon dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Corporation, whether voluntary or involuntary, in proportion to their respective dividend rates or liquidation prices, without preference or priority, one over the other, as between the holders of such stock and over the other, as between the holders of such stock and the holders of shares of this Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock; and,
     
  6.2.3 Junior to shares of this Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock, either as to dividends or upon liquidation, if such class or series shall be Common Stock or if the holders of shares of this Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock shall be entitled to receipt of dividends or of amounts distributable upon dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Corporation, whether voluntary or involuntary, as the case may be, in preference or priority to the holders of shares of such class or series.

 

Part 7 - Amendment and Reissue.

 

  7.1 Amendment.

  7.2 Authorized. Any shares of Series 4 Class D Preferred Stock acquired by the Corporation by reason of purchase, conversion, redemption or otherwise shall be retired and shall become authorized but unissued shares of Preferred Stock, which may be reissued as part of a new series of Preferred Stock hereafter created.

Part 2 - Liquidation Rights.

If the Corporation shall be voluntarily or involuntarily liquidated, dissolved or wound up at any time when any shares of the Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock shall be outstanding, the holders of the then outstanding Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock shall be entitled to receive out of the assets of the Corporation available for distribution to shareholders an amount equal to $1,000 consideration per outstanding share of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock, and no more, plus an amount equal to all unpaid dividends accrued thereon to the date of payment of such distribution (“Liquidation Preference”), whether or not declared by the Board of Directors, before any payment shall be made or any assets distributed to the holders of the Corporation’s Common Stock.

Part 3 - Dividends.

The Liquidation Value of the Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock shall be $1,000 per outstanding share of the Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock (the “Liquidation Value”). The dividend is payable semi-annually within seven (7) business days after each of December 31 and June 30 of each year, commencing December 31, 1997 (each, a “Dividend Declaration Date”).

Part 4 - Conversion. The holders of the Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock shall have rights to convert the shares of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock into shares of the Corporation’s Common Stock, as follows (the “Conversion Rights”):

 

4.1 Right to Convert. The Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock shall be convertible into shares of Common Stock, as follows:

 

  4.1.1 Up to one hundred seventy-five (175) shares of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock may be converted at the Conversion Price (as that term is defined in Section 4.2 below) at any time on or after November 3, 1997; and,
     
  4.1.2 Up to an additional one hundred seventy-five (175) shares of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock may be converted at the Conversion Price at any time on or after December 3, 1997.

 

4.2 Conversion Price. Subject to the terms hereof, as used herein, the term Conversion Price per outstanding share of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock shall be the product of the lesser of (i) the average closing bid quotation of the Common Stock as reported on the over-the-counter market, or the closing sale price if listed on a national securities exchange, for the five (5) trading days immediately preceding the date of the Conversion Notice referred to in Section 4.3 below multiplied by eighty percent (80%) or (ii) U.S. $1.6875. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Conversion Price shall not be less than a minimum of $.75 per share (“Minimum Conversion Price”), which Minimum Conversion Price shall be eliminated from and after September 6, 1998. If any of the outstanding shares of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock are converted, in whole or in part, into Common Stock pursuant to the terms of this Part 4, the number of shares of whole Common Stock to be issued to the holder as a result of such conversion shall be determined by dividing (a) the aggregate Liquidation Value of the Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock so surrendered for conversion by (b) the Conversion Price in effect at the date of the conversion. At the time of conversion of shares of the Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock, the Corporation shall pay in cash to the holder thereof an amount equal to all unpaid and accrued dividends, if any, accrued thereon to the date of conversion, or, at the Corporation’s option, in lieu of paying cash for the accrued and unpaid dividends, issue that number of shares of whole Common Stock which is equal to the quotient of the amount of such unpaid and accrued dividends to the date of conversion on the shares of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock so converted divided by the Stock Dividend Price, as defined in Section 3.1 hereof, in effect at the date of conversion.

 

-4-

 

 

4.3 Mechanics Conversion. Any holder of the Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock who wishes to exercise its Conversion Rights pursuant to Section 4.1 of this Part 4 must surrender the certificate therefor at the principal executive office of the Corporation, and give written notice, which may be via facsimile transmission, to the Corporation at such office that it elects to convert the same (the “Conversion Notice”). No Conversion Notice with respect to any shares of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock can be given prior to the time such shares of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock are eligible for conversion in accordance with the provision of Section 4.1 above, except as provided in Section 4.4. Any such premature Conversion Notice shall automatically be null and void. The Corporation shall, within seven (7) business days after receipt of an appropriate and timely Conversion Notice (and certificate, if necessary), issue to such holder of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock or its agent a certificate for the number of shares of Common Stock to which he shall be entitled; it being expressly agreed that until and unless the holder delivers written notice to the Corporation to the contrary, all shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock hereunder are to be delivered by the Corporation to a party designated in writing by the holder in the Conversion Notice for the account of the holder and such shall be deemed valid delivery to the holder of such shares of Common Stock. Such conversion shall be deemed to have been made only after both the certificate for the shares of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock to be convened have been surrendered and the Conversion Notice is received by the Corporation (the “Conversion Documents”), and the person or entity whose name is noted on the certificate evidencing such shares of Common Stock issuable upon such conversion shall be treated for all purposes as the record holder of such shares of Common Stock at and after such time. In the event that the Conversion Notice is sent via facsimile transmission, the Corporation shall be deemed to have received such Conversion Notice on the first business day on which such facsimile Conversion Notice is actually received.
   
4.4 Merger or Consolidation. In case of either (a) any merger or consolidation to which the Corporation is a party (collectively, the “Merger”), other than a Merger in which the Corporation is the surviving or continuing corporation, or (b) any sale or conveyance to another corporation of all, or substantially all, of the assets of the Corporation (collectively, the “Sale”), and such Merger or Sale becomes effective (x) while any shares of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock are outstanding and prior to the date that the Corporation’s Registration Statement covering up to 200,000 shares of Common Stock issuable upon the conversion of the Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock is declared effective by the U. S. Securities and Exchange Commission or (y) prior to the end of the restriction periods in Section 4.1, then, in such event, the Corporation or such successor corporation, as the case may be, shall make appropriate provision so that the holder of each share of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock then outstanding shall have the right to convert such share of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock into the kind and amount of shares of stock or other securities and property receivable upon such Merger or Sale by a holder of the number of shares of Common Stock into which such shares of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock could have been converted into immediately prior to such Merger or Sale, subject to adjustments which shall be as nearly equivalent as may be practicable to the adjustments provided for in this Part 4.

 

-5-

 

 

4.4 Adjustments to Conversion Price for Stock Dividends and for Combinations or Subdivisions of Common stock. If the Corporation at any time or from time to time while shares of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock are issued and outstanding shall declare or pay, without consideration, any dividend on the Common Stock payable in Common Stock, or shall effect a subdivision of the outstanding shares of Common Stock into a greater number of shares of Common Stock (by stock split, reclassification or otherwise than by payment of a dividend in Common Stock or in any right to acquire Common Stock), or if the outstanding shares of Common Stock shall be combined or consolidated, by reclassification or otherwise, into a lesser number of shares of Common Stock, then the Conversion Price in effect immediately before such event shall, concurrently with the effectiveness of such event, be proportionately decreased or increased, as appropriate.
   
4.5. Adjustments for Reclassification and Reorganization. If the Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock shall be changed into the same or a different number of shares of any other class or classes of stock, whether by capital reorganization, reclassification or otherwise (other than a subdivision or combination of shares provided for in Section 4.4 hereof), the Conversion Price then in effect shall, concurrently with the effectiveness of such reorganization or reclassification, be proportionately adjusted so that the Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock shall be convertible into, in lieu of the number of shares of Common Stock which the holders of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock would otherwise have been entitled to receive, a number of shares of such other class or classes of stock equivalent to the number of shares of Common Stock that would have been subject to receipt by the holders upon conversion of the Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock immediately before that change.
   
4.6 Common Stock Duly Issued. All Common Stock which may be issued upon conversion of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock will, upon issuance, be duly issued, fully paid and nonassessable and free from all taxes, liens, and charges with respect to the issue thereof.
   
4.7 Notice of Adjustments. Upon the occurrence of each adjustment or readjustment of any Conversion Price pursuant to this Part 4, the Corporation, at its expense, within a reasonable period of time, shall compute such adjustment or readjustment in accordance with the terms hereof and prepare and furnish to each holder of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock a notice setting forth such adjustment or readjustment and showing in detail the facts upon which such adjustment is based.
   
4.8 Issue Taxes. The Corporation shall pay any and all issue and other taxes that may be payable in respect of any issue or delivery of shares of Common Stock on conversion of the Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock pursuant thereto; provided, however, that the Corporation shall not be obligated to pay any transfer taxes resulting from any transfer requested by any holder of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock in connection with such conversion.

 

-6-

 

 

4.9 Reservation of Stock Issuable Upon Conversion. The Corporation shall at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock, solely for the purpose of effecting the conversion of the shares of the Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock, such number of its shares of Common Stock as shall, from time to time, be sufficient to effect the conversion of all outstanding shares of the Series 5 Class E Preferred stock, and, if at any time, the number of authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock shall not be sufficient to effect the conversion of all then outstanding shares of the Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock, the Corporation will take such corporate action as may be necessary to increase its authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock to such number of shares as shall be sufficient for such purposes, including, without limitation, engaging in reasonable efforts to obtain the requisite stockholder approval of any necessary amendment to its Certificate of Incorporation.
   
4.10 Fractional Shares. No fractional shares shall be issued upon the conversion of any share or shares of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock. All shares of Common Stock (including fractions thereof) issuable upon conversion of more than one share of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock by a holder thereof shall be aggregated for purposes of determining whether the conversion would result in the issuance of any fractional share. If, after the aforementioned aggregation, the conversion would result in the issuance of a fractional share of Common Stock, such fractional share shall be rounded up to the nearest whole share.
   
4.11 Notices. Any notices required by the provisions of this Part 4 to be given to the holders of shares of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock shall be deemed given if deposited in the United States mail, postage prepaid, and addressed to each holder of record at his address appearing on the books of the Corporation.
   
4.12 Business Day. As used herein, the term “business day” shall mean any day other than a Saturday, Sunday or a day when the federal and state banks located in the State of New York are required or is permitted to close.

 

Part 5 - Redemption.

 

5.1 Redemption at Corporation’s Option. Except as otherwise provided in this Section 5.1, at any time, and from time to time, after the expiration of one (1) year from the date of the first issuance of the Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock, the Corporation may, at its sole option, but shall not be obligated to, redeem, in whole or in part, at any time, and from time to time, the then outstanding Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock at the following cash redemption prices per share (the “Redemption Price”) if redeemed during the following periods: (a) within four (4) years from the date of the first issuance of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock - $1,300 per share, if at any time during such four (4) year period the average of the closing bid price of the Common Stock for ten (10) consecutive trading days shall be in excess of Four U.S. Dollars ($4.00) per share, and (b) after four (4) years from the date of the first issuance of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock - $1,000 per share.

The Redemption Notice shall state: (i) the Redemption Date of such shares, (ii) the number of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock to be redeemed from the holder to whom the Redemption Notice is addressed, (iii) instructions for surrender to the Corporation, in the manner and at the place designated, of a share certificate or share certificates representing the number of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock to be redeemed from such holder, and (iv) instructions as to how to specify to the Corporation the number of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock to be redeemed as provided in this Part 5.
   
5.4 Rights of Conversion Upon Redemption.

5.5 Surrender of Certificates. On or before the Redemption Date in respect of any Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock, each holder of such shares shall surrender the required certificate or certificates representing such shares to the Corporation in the manner and at the place designated in the Redemption Notice, and upon the Redemption Date, the Redemption Price for such shares shall be made payable, in the manner provided in Section 5.6 hereof, to the order of the person whose name appears on such certificate or certificates as the owner thereof. If a share certificate is surrendered and all the shares evidenced thereby are not being redeemed (as described below), the Corporation shall cause the Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock which are not being redeemed to be registered in the names of the persons or entity whose names appear as the owners on the respective surrendered share certificates and deliver such certificate to such person.

S. $50,000,000, as a trust fund, a sum equal to the aggregate Redemption Price of all such shares called from redemption (less the aggregate Redemption Price for those Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock in respect of which the Corporation has received notice from the holder thereof of its election to convert Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock into Common Stock), with irrevocable instructions and authority to the bank or trust company to pay, on or after the Redemption Date, the Redemption Price to the respective holders upon the surrender of their share certificates. The deposit shall constitute full payment for the shares to their holders, and from and after the date of the deposit the redeemed shares shall be deemed to be no longer outstanding, and holders thereof shall cease to be shareholders with respect to such shares and shall have no rights with respect thereto except the rights to receive from the bank or trust company payments of the Redemption Price of the shares, without interest, upon surrender of their certificates thereof. Any funds so deposited and unclaimed at the end of one year following the Redemption Date shall be released or repaid to the Corporation, after which the former holders of shares called for redemption shall be entitled to receive payment of the Redemption Price in respect of their shares only from the Corporation.

 

Part 6 - Parity with Other Shares of Series 5 Class E Preferred Stock and Priority.

  4.1.1 Up to one thousand two hundred fifty (1,250) shares of Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock may be converted at the Conversion Price (as that term is defined in Section 4.2 below) at any time on or after October 5, 1997; and,
     
  4.1.2 Up to an additional one thousand two hundred fifty (1,250) shares of Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock may be converted at the Conversion Price at any lime on or after November 5, 1997.

 

4.2 Conversion Price. Subject to the terms hereof, as used herein, the Conversion Price per outstanding share of Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock shall be $1,8125, except that, in the event the average closing bid price per share of the Common Stock for 20 of any 30 consecutive trading days after March 1, 1998 shall be less than $2.50 as reported on the over-the-counter market, or the closing sale price if listed on a national securities exchange, the Conversion Price shall thereafter be the product of the lesser of (i) the average closing bid quotation of the Common Stock as reported on the over-the- counter market or the closing sale price if listed on a national securities exchange, for the five trading days immediately preceding the date of the Conversion Notice referred to in Section 4.3 below multiplied by eighty percent (80%) or (ii) $1.8125.

If any of the outstanding shares of Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock are converted, in whole or in part, into Common Stock pursuant to the terms of this Part 4 the number of shares of whole Common Stock to be issued to the holder as a result of such conversion shall be determined by dividing (a) the aggregate Liquidation Value of the Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock so surrendered for conversion by (b) the Conversion Price as of such conversion. At the time of conversion of shares of the Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock, the Corporation shall pay in cash to the holder thereof an amount equal to all unpaid and accrued dividends, if any, accrued thereon to the date of conversion, or, at the Corporation’s option, in lieu of paying cash for the accrued and unpaid dividends, issue that number of whole shares of Common Stock which is equal to the quotient of the amount of such unpaid and accrued dividends to the date of conversion on the shares of Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock so converted divided by the Stock Dividend Price as defined in Part 3 hereof, in effect at the date of conversion.

4.3 Mechanics of Conversion. Any holder of the Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock who wishes to exercise its Conversion Rights pursuant to Section 4.1 of this Part 4 must, if such shares are not being held in escrow by the Corporation’s attorneys, surrender the certificate therefor at the principal executive office of the Corporation, and give written notice, which may be via facsimile transmission, to the Corporation at such office that it elects to convert the same (the “Conversion Notice”). In the event that the shares of Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock are being held in escrow by the Corporation’s attorneys, no delivery of the certificates shall be required. No Conversion Notice with respect to any shares of Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock can be given prior to the time such shares of Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock are eligible for conversion in accordance with the provision of Section 4.1 above, except as provided in Section 4.4. Any such premature Conversion Notice shall automatically be null and void. The Corporation shall, within five (5) business days after receipt of an appropriate and timely Conversion Notice (and certificate, if necessary), issue to such holder of Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock or its agent a certificate for the number of shares of Common Stock to which he shall be entitled; it being expressly agreed that until and unless the holder delivers written notice to the Corporation to the contrary, all shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock hereunder are to be delivered by the Corporation to a party designated in writing by the holder in the Conversion Notice for the account of the holder and such shall be deemed valid delivery to the holder of such shares of Common Stock. Such conversion shall be deemed to have been made only after both the certificate for the shares of Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock to be converted have been surrendered and the Conversion Notice is received by the Corporation (or in the event that no surrender of the Certificate is required, then only upon the receipt by the Corporation of the Conversion Notice) (the “Conversion Documents”), and the person or entity whose name is noted on the certificate evidencing such shares of Common Stock issuable upon such conversion shall be treated for ail purposes as the record holder or such shares of Common Stock at and after such time. In the event that the Conversion Notice is sent via facsimile transmission, the Corporation shall be deemed to have received such Conversion Notice on the first business day on which such facsimile Conversion Notice is actually received. If the Corporation fails to deliver to the holder or its agent the certificate representing the shares of Common Stock that the holder is entitled to receive as a result of such conversion within seven (7) business days after receipt by the Corporation from the holder of an appropriate and timely Conversion Notice and certificates pursuant to the terms of this Section 4.3 (“Seven (7) Business Day Period”), then, upon the written demand of RBB Bank Aktiengesellschaft (“RBB Bank”), the holder of the Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock, for payment of the penalty described below in this Section 4.3, which demand must be received by the Corporation no later than ten (10) calendar days after the expiration of such Seven (7) Business Day Period, the Corporation shall pay to RBB Bank the following penalty for each business day after the Seven (7) Business Day Period until the Corporation delivers to the holder or its agent the certificate representing the shares of Common Stock that the holder is entitled to receive as a result of such conversion: business day eight (8) - U.S. $1,000; business day nine (9) - U.S. $2,000, and each business day thereafter an amount equal to the penalty due on the immediately preceding business day times two (2) until the Corporation delivers to the holder or its agent the certificate representing the shares of Common Stock that the holder is entitled to receive as a result of such conversion.

S. Securities and Exchange Commission or (y) prior to the end of the restriction periods in Section 4.1, then, in such event, the Corporation or such successor corporation, as the case may be, shall make appropriate provision so that the holder of each share of Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock then outstanding shall have the right to convert such share of Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock into the kind and amount of shares of stock or other securities and property receivable upon such Merger or Sale by a holder of the number of shares of Common Stock into which such shares of Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock could have been converted into immediately prior to such Merger or Sale, subject to adjustments which shall be as nearly equivalent as may be practicable to the adjustments provided for in this Part 4.

 

4.5 Adjustments to Conversion Price for Stock Dividends and for Combinations or Subdivisions of Common Stock. If the Corporation at any time or from time to time while shares of Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock are issued and outstanding shall declare or pay, without consideration, any dividend on the Common Stock payable in Common Stock, or shall effect a subdivision of the outstanding shares of Common Stock into a greater number of shares of Common Stock (by stock split, reclassification or otherwise than by payment of a dividend In Common Stock or in any right to acquire Common Stock), or if the outstanding shares of Common Stock shall be combined or consolidated, by reclassification or otherwise, into a lesser number of shares of Common Stock, then the Conversion Price in effect immediately before such event shall, concurrently with the effectiveness of such event, be proportionately decreased or increased, as appropriate.

 

4.6 Adjustments for Reclassification and Reorganization. If the Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock shall be changed into the same or a different number of shares of any other class or classes of stock, whether by capital reorganization, reclassification or otherwise (other than a subdivision or combination of shares provided for in Section 4.4 hereof), the Conversion Price shall, concurrently with the effectiveness of such reorganization or reclassification, be proportionately adjusted so that the Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock shall be convertible into, in lieu of the number of shares of Common Stock which the holders of Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock would otherwise have been entitled to receive, a number of shares of such other class or classes of stock equivalent to the number of shares of Common Stock that would have been subject to receipt by the holders upon conversion of the Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock immediately before that change.

4.7 Common Stock Duly Issued. All Common Stock which may be issued upon conversion of Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock will, upon issuance, be duly issued, fully paid and nonassessable and free from all taxes, liens, and charges with respect to the issue thereof.

 

4.8 Notice of Adjustments. Upon the occurrence of each adjustment or readjustment of any Conversion Price pursuant to this Part 4, the Corporation, at its expense, within a reasonable period of time, shall compute such adjustment or readjustment in accordance with the terms hereof and prepare and furnish to each holder of Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock a notice setting forth such adjustment or readjustment and showing in detail the facts upon which such adjustment is based.

 

4.9 Issue Taxes. The Corporation shall pay any and all issue and other taxes that may be payable in respect of any issue or delivery of shares of Common Stock on conversion of the Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock pursuant thereto; Provided, however, that the Corporation shall not be obligated to pay any transfer taxes resulting from any transfer requested by any holder of Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock in connection with such conversion.

 

4.10 Reservation of Stock Issuable Upon Conversion. The Corporation shall at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock, solely for the purpose of effecting the conversion of the shares of the Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock, such number of its shares of Common Stock as shall, from time to lime, be sufficient to effect the conversion of all outstanding shares of the Series 6 Class F Preferred stock, and, if at any time, the number of authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock shall not be sufficient to effect the conversion of all then outstanding shares of the Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock, the Corporation will take such corporate action as may be necessary to increase its authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock to such number of shares as shall be sufficient for such purposes, including, without limitation, engaging in reasonable efforts to obtain the requisite stockholder approval of any necessary amendment to its Certificate of Incorporation.

 

4.11 Fractional Shares. No fractional shares shall be issued upon the conversion of any share or shares of Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock. All shares of Common Stock (including fractions thereof) issuable upon conversion of more than one share of Series 6 Class F Preferred Stock by a holder thereof shall be aggregated for purposes of determining whether the conversion would result in the issuance of any fractional share. If, after the aforementioned aggregation, the conversion would result in the issuance of a fractional share of Common Stock, such fractional share shall be rounded up to the nearest whole share.

In the event that the shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Preferred, is not delivered within six (6) business days of the date the Company receives the Conversion Notice, the Company shall pay to the Buyer, by wire transfer, as liquidated damages for such failure and not as a penalty, for each $100,000 of Preferred sought to be converted, $500 for each of the first five (5) calendar days and $1,000 per calendar day thereafter that the shares of Common Stock are not delivered, which liquidated damages shall begin to run from the seventh (7th) business day after the Conversion Date. Any and all payments required pursuant to this paragraph shall be payable only in cash. Notwithstanding the above, liquidated damages shall not exceed $2,000.00 per day. In addition to the liquidated damages set forth herein, in the event the Company fails to deliver the shares of Common Stock within six (6) business days after the Conversion date, the Company agrees to issue the larger number of shares of Common Stock derived from (i) the original Conversion Notice, or (ii) utilizing the five lowest closing bid prices of the Company’s shares of Common Stock beginning on the Conversion Date and ending on the day the shares of Common Stock are delivered. The Company understands that a delay in the issuance of the shares of Common Stock could result in economic loss to the Holder. Nothing contained herein, or in the Preferred shall limit the Holder’s rights to pursue actual damages for the Company’s failure to issue and deliver shares of Common Stock to the Holder in accordance with the terms of the Certificate of Designations, and this Agreement.

(e) Fractional Shares of Common Stock. No fractional shares of Common Stock shall be issued upon conversion of any Preferred Stock into shares of Common Stock. All fractional shares of Common Stock shall be aggregated and then rounded down to the nearest whole share of Common Stock. In case the number of shares of Preferred Stock represented by the certificate or certificates surrendered pursuant to Subparagraph 5(b) exceeds the number of shares of Common Stock converted, the Corporation shall, upon such conversion, execute and deliver to the Holder, at the expense of the Corporation, a new certificate or certificates for the number of shares of Preferred Stock represented by the certificate or certificates surrendered which are not to be converted.

 

(f) Merger or Consolidation. In case of either (a) any merger or consolidation to which the Corporation is a party (collectively, the “Merger”), other than a Merger in which the Corporation is the surviving or continuing corporation, or (b) any sale or conveyance to another corporation of all, or substantially all, of the assets of the Corporation (collectively, the “Sale”), and such Merger or Sale becomes effective (x) while any shares of Preferred Stock are outstanding and prior to the date that the Corporation’s Registration Statement covering all the shares of Common Stock issuable upon the conversion of the Preferred Stock is declared effective by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”), the Corporation or such successor corporation as the case may be, shall make appropriate provision so that the Holder of each share of Preferred Stock then outstanding shall have the right to convert such share of Preferred Stock into the kind and amount of shares of stock or other securities and property receivable upon such Merger or Sale by a holder of the number of shares of Common Stock into which such shares of Preferred Stock could have been converted into immediately prior to such Merger or Sale, subject to adjustments which shall be as nearly equivalent as may be practicable to the adjustments provided for in this Section 5.

 

-5-

 

 

In the event of a Merger or Sale, where the Corporation is not the surviving Corporation, the Holder shall have the right to redeem all of the outstanding shares of Preferred Stock at 120% of the Liquidation Value of each share of Preferred Stock then outstanding plus all accrued and unpaid dividends (the “Redemption Amount”). The Corporation shall pay this Redemption Amount in cash within ten (10) business days of receipt by the Corporation of notice from the Holder, and receipt by the Corporation of all outstanding shares of Preferred Stock duly endorsed by the Holder to the Corporation.

 

(g) Adjustments to Conversion Price for Stock Dividends and for Combinations or Subdivisions of Common Stock. If the Corporation at any time or from time to time while shares of Preferred Stock are issued and outstanding shall declare or pay, any dividend on the Common Stock payable in Common Stock, or shall effect a subdivision of the outstanding shares of Common Stock into a greater number of shares of Common Stock (by stock split, reclassification or otherwise than by payment of a dividend in Common Stock), or if the outstanding shares of Common Stock shall be combined or consolidated, by reclassification or otherwise, into a lesser number of shares of Common Stock, then the Conversion Price in effect immediately before such event shall, concurrently with the effectiveness of such event, be proportionately decreased or increased, as appropriate.

 

(h) Adjustments for Reclassification and Reorganization. If the Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Preferred Stock shall be changed into the game or a different number of shares of Common Stock of any other class or classes of stock, whether by capital reorganization, reclassification or otherwise (other than a subdivision or combination or shares of Common Stock provided for in Section 5(g) hereof), the Conversion Price then in effect shall, concurrently with the effectiveness of such reorganization or reclassification, be proportionately adjusted so that the Preferred Stock shall be convertible into, in lieu of the number of shares of Common Stock which the holders of Preferred Stock would otherwise have been entitled to receive, a number of shares of Common Stock of such other class or classes of stock equivalent to the number of shares of Common Stock that would have been subject to receipt by the holders upon conversion of the Preferred Stock immediately before that change.

 

6. Assignment.

 

Subject to all applicable restrictions on transfer, the rights and obligations of the Corporation and the Holder of the Preferred Stock shall be binding upon and benefit the successors, assigns, heirs, administrators, and transferees of the parties.

7. Shares of Common Stock to be Reserved.

 

The Corporation, upon the effective date of this Certificate of Designations, has a sufficient number of shares of Common Stock available to reserve for issuance upon the conversion of all outstanding shares of Preferred Stock, pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth in Section 5, and exercise of the Warrants as defined in Section 11. The Corporation will at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized shares of Common Stock, solely for the purpose of issuance upon the conversion of Preferred Stock, and exercise of the Warrants, as herein provided, such number of shares of Common Stock as shall then be issuable upon the conversion of all outstanding shares of Preferred Stock, and exercise of the Warrants. The Corporation covenants that all shares of Common Stock which shall be so issued shall be duly and validly issued, fully paid and non assessable. The Corporation will take such action as may be required, if the total number of shares of Common Stock issued and issuable after such action upon conversion of the Preferred Stock, and exercise of the Warrants would exceed the total number of shares of Common Stock then authorized by the Corporation’s Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, or would exceed 19.99% of the shares of Common Stock then outstanding if required by law or the Rules and Regulations of NASDAQ or the National Securities Exchange applicable to the Corporation to take such action as a result of exceeding such 19.99%, in order to increase the number of shares of Common Stock to permit the Corporation to issue the number of shares of Common Stock required to effect conversion of the Preferred, and exercise of the Warrants, to a number sufficient to permit conversion of the Preferred Stock, and exercise of the Warrants, including, without limitation, engaging in reasonable efforts to obtain the requisite stockholder approval of any necessary amendment to the Corporation’s Restated Certificate of Incorporation, and to obtain shareholders approval in order to effect conversion of the Preferred Stock, and exercise of the Warrants, if required by law or the rules or regulations of the NASDAQ or National Securities Exchange applicable to the Corporation.

 

7(a) Shareholder Approval. In connection with the issuance to the Holder of the shares of Preferred Stock, pursuant to this Certificate of Designations, the Corporation is also issuing (i) certain warrants (“RBB Warrants”) to the Holder pursuant to the terms of that certain Private Securities Subscription Agreement dated June 30th, 1998 (the “Agreement”), providing for the purchase of up to 150,000 shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of $2.50 per share and (ii) certain warrants (collectively, the “Liviakis Warrants”) to Liviakis Financial Communication, Inc. (“Liviakis”) and Robert B. Prag providing for the purchase of up to an aggregate of 2,500,000 shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of $1 .875 per share pursuant to the terms of that Placement and Consulting Agreement dated June 30th, 1998, between Liviakis and the Corporation.

 

-7-

 

 

If (i) the aggregate number of shares of Common Stock issued by the Corporation as a result of any or all of the following: (a) conversion of the Preferred Stock, (b) payment of dividends accrued on the Preferred Stock (c) exercise of the RBB Warrants, and (d) exercise of the Liviakis Warrants exceeds 2,388,347 shares of Common Stock (which equals 19.9% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock of the Corporation as of the date of this Certificate of Designations) and (ii) the Holder has converted or elects to convert any of the then outstanding shares of Preferred Stock pursuant to the terms of this Section 5 at a Conversion Price less than $1.875 ($1.875 the market value per share of Common Stock as quoted on the NASDAQ as of the close of business on June 30th, 1998) pursuant to the terms of Section 5(b) hereof, other than if the Conversion Price is less than $1.875 solely as a result of the anti-dilution provisions of Section 5(g) and (h) hereof, then, notwithstanding anything in Section 5 to the contrary, the Corporation shall not issue any shares of Common Stock as a result of receipt of a Conversion Notice unless and until the Corporation shall have obtained approval of its shareholders entitled to vote on the transactions in accordance with subparagraphs (25)(H)(i)d, (iv) and (v) of Rule 4310 of the NASDAQ Marketplace Rules (“Shareholder Approval”).

 

If Shareholder Approval is required as set forth in the above paragraph, the Corporation shall take all necessary steps to obtain such Shareholder Approval upon receipt of the Conversion Notice triggering the need for Shareholder Approval (“Current Conversion Notice”). If the Corporation has not received from the Holder a Current Conversion Notice, the Holder, subsequent to January 1st. 1999 may, if the Corporation’s shares of Common Stock trade, subsequent to January 1st, 1999, at a five (5) day average closing bid price below Two Dollars and 34/00 ($2.34), upon written notice to the Corporation, require the Corporation to obtain Shareholder Approval (“Holder’s Notice”). The Holder and the Corporation’s officers and directors covenant to vote all shares of Common Stock over which they have voting control in favour of Shareholder Approval. If the Corporation does not obtain Shareholder Approval within ninety (90) days of the earlier of the Corporation’s receipt of (i) the Current Conversion Notice or (ii) the Holder’s Notice, and the Holder has not breached its covenant to vote all shares of Common Stock over which they have voting control in favour of Shareholder Approval, the Corporation shall pay in cash to the Holder liquidated damages, in an amount of 4% per month of the Liquidation Value of each share of Preferred Stock then outstanding, commencing on the 91st day of the Corporation’s receipt of the Holder’s Current Conversion Notice, and continuing every thirty (30) days pro-rata until such time the Corporation receives Shareholder Approval.

 

8. No Reissuance of Series 10 Class J Convertible Preferred Stock.

 

Shares of Preferred Stock which are converted into shares of Common Stock as provided herein shall be retired and shall become authorized but unissued shares of Preferred Stock, which may be reissued as part of a new series of Preferred stock hereafter created.

 

9. Closing of Books.

 

The Corporation will at no time close its transfer books against the transfer of any Preferred Stock or of any shares of Common Stock issued or issuable upon the conversion of any shares of Common Stock of Preferred Stock in any manner which interferes with the timely conversion of such Preferred Stock, except as may otherwise be required to comply with applicable securities laws.

 

-8-

 

 

10. No Preemptive Rights.

 

The Preferred Stock shall not give its holders any preemptive rights to acquire any other securities issued by the Corporation at any time in the future.

 

11. Definition of Shares.

 

As used in this Certificate of Designations, me term “shares of Common Stock” shall mean and include the Corporation’s authorized common stock, par value $.001, as constituted on the date of filing of these terms of the Preferred Stock, or in case of any reorganization, reclassification, or stock split of the outstanding shares of Common Stock thereof, the stock, securities or assets provided for hereof. The term “Warrants” as used herein shall have the same meaning as defined in Section 1 of the Private Securities Subscription Agreement, dated June 30th 1998, between the Company and RBB Bank Aktiengesellschaft.

 

The said determination of the designations, preferences and relative, participating, optional or other rights, and the qualifications, limitations or restrictions thereof, relating to the Preferred Stock was duly made by the Board of Directors pursuant to the provisions of the Corporation’s Restated Certificate of Incorporation and in accordance with the provisions of the Delaware General Corporation Law.

Part 2-liquidation Rights.

 

2.1 Liquidation. If the Corporation shall be voluntarily or involuntarily liquidated, dissolved or wound up at any time when any shares of the Series 8 Class H Preferred Stock shall be outstanding, the holders of the then outstanding Series 8 Class H Preferred Stock shall have a preference in distribution of the Corporation’s property available for distribution to the holders of the Corporation’s Common Stock equal to $1.000 consideration per outstanding share of Series 8 Class H Preferred Stock, plus an amount equal to all unpaid dividends accrued thereon to the date of payment of such distribution (“Liquidation Preference”), whether or not declared by the Board.

 

2.2 Payment of Liquidation Preferences. Subject to the provisions of Part 6 hereof, all amounts to be paid as Liquidation Preference to the holders of Series 8 Class H Preferred Stock, as provided In this Part 2, shall be paid or set apart for payment before the payment or setting apart for payment of any amount for, or the distribution of any of the Corporation’s property to the holders of the Corporation’s Common Stock, whether now or hereafter authorized, in connection with such liquidation, dissolution or winding up.

Part 3- Dividends. The holders of the Series 8 Class H Preferred Stock are entitled to receive if, when and as declared by the Board out of funds legally available therefor, cumulative dividends, payable in cash or Common Stock of the Corporation, par value $.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), or any combination thereof, at the Corporation’s election, at the rate of four percent (4%) per annum of the Liquidation Value (as defined below) of each issued and outstanding share of Series 8 Class H Preferred Stock (the “Dividend Rate”). The Liquidation Value of the Series 8 Class H Preferred Stock shall be $1,000 per outstanding share of the Series 8 Class H Preferred Stock (the “Liquidation Value”). The dividend is payable semi annually within seven (7) business days after each of December 31 and June 30 of each year, commencing June 30, 1998 (each, a “Dividend Declaration Date”). Dividends shall be paid only with respect to shares of Series 8 Class H Preferred Stock actually issued and outstanding on a Dividend Declaration Date and to holders of record of the Series 8 Class H Preferred Stock as of the Dividend Declaration Date. Dividends shall accrue from the first day of the semi-annual period in which such dividend may be payable, except with respect to the first semi-annual dividend which shall accrue from March 1, 1998.

Dividends on the Series 8 Class H Preferred Stock shall be cumulative, and no dividends or other distributions shall be paid or declared or set aside for payment on the Corporation’s Common Stock until all accrued and unpaid dividends on all outstanding shares of Series 8 Class H Preferred Stock shall have been paid or declared and set aside for payment.

 

Part 4 - Conversion. The holders of the Series 8 Class H Preferred Stock shall have rights to convert the shares of Series 8 Class H Preferred Stock into shares of the Corporation’s Common Stock, par value $.001 per share (“Common Stock”), as follows (the “Conversion Rights”):

 

4.1 The Series 8 Class H Preferred Stock shall be convertible into shares of Common Stock at any time.

 

-3-

 

 

4.2 Conversion Price. Subject to the terms hereof, as used herein, the Conversion Price per outstanding share of Series 8 Class H Preferred Stock shall be $1.8125, except that, in the event the average closing bid price per share of the Common Stock as reported on the over-the-counter market, or the closing sale price if listed on a national securities exchange, for the five (5) trading days prior to the particular data of conversion shall be less than $2,265. the Conversion Price for only such particular conversion shall be the product of the average closing bid quotation of the Common Stock as reported on the over-the-counter market, or the closing sale price if listed on a national securities exchange, for the five (5) trading days immediately preceding the date of the Conversion Notice referred to in Section 4.3 below in connection with such conversion multiplied by eighty percent (80%). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Conversion Price shall not be less than a minimum of $.75 per share (“Minimum Conversion Price”), which Minimum Conversion Price shall be eliminated from and after September 6, 1998. If any of the outstanding shares of Series 8 Class H Preferred Stock are converted, in whole or in part, into Common Stock pursuant to the terms of this Part 4, the number of shares of whole Common Stock to be issued to the holder as a result of such conversion shall be determined by dividing (a) the aggregate Liquidation Value of the Series 8 Class H Preferred Stock so surrendered for conversion by (b) the Conversion Price is of such conversion. At the time of conversion of shares of the Series 8 Class H Preferred Stock, the Corporation shall pay in cash to the holder thereof an amount equal to all unpaid and accrued dividends, if any, accrued thereon to the date of conversion, or. at the Corporation’s option, in lieu of paying cash for the accrued and unpaid dividends, issue that number of whole shares or Common Stock which is equal to the quotient of the amount of such unpaid and accrued dividends to the date of conversion on the shares of Series 8 Class H Preferred Stock so converted divided by the Stock Dividend Price, as defined in Part 3 hereof, in effect at the date of conversion.

4.3 Mechanics of Conversion. Any holder of the Series 8 Class H Preferred Stock who wishes to exercise its Conversion Rights pursuant to Section 4.1 of this Part 4 mast, if such shares are not being held in escrow by the Corporation’s attorneys, surrender the certificate therefor at the principal executive office of the Corporation, and give written notice, which may be via facsimile transmission, to the Corporation at such office that it elects to convert the same (the “Conversion Notice”). In the event that the shares of Series B Class H Preferred Stock are being held in escrow by the Corporation’s attorneys, no delivery of the certificates shall be required. The Corporation shall, within five (5) business days after receipt of an appropriate and timely Conversion Notice (and certificate, if necessary), issue to such holder of Series 8 Class H Preferred Stock or its agent a certificate for the number of shares of Common Stock to which he shall be entitled; it being expressly agreed that until and unless the holder delivers written notice to the Corporation to the contrary, all shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Series 8 Class H Preferred Stock hereunder are to be delivered by the Corporation to a party designated in writing by the holder in the Conversion Notice for the account of the holder and such shall be deemed valid delivery to the holder of such shares of Common Stock. Such conversion shall be deemed to have been made only after both the certificate for the shares of Series 8 Class H Preferred Stock to be converted have been surrendered and the Conversion Notice is received by the Corporation (or in the event that no surrendered of the Certificate is required, then only upon the receipt by the Corporation of the Conversion Notice) (the “Conversion Documents”). and the person or entity whose name is noted on the certificate evidencing such shares of Common Stock issuable upon such conversion shall be treated for all purposes as the record bolder of such shares of Common Stock at and after such time. In the event that the Conversion Notice is sent via facsimile transmission, the Corporation shall be deemed to have received such Conversion Notice on the first business day on which such facsimile Conversion Notice is actually received. If the Corporation fails to deliver to the holder or its agent the certificate representing the shares of Common Stock that the holder is entitled to receive as a result of such conversion of the Series 8 Class H Preferred Stock within seven (7) business days after receipt by the Corporation from the holder of an appropriate and timely Conversion Notice and certificates pursuant to the terms of this Section 4.3 (“Seven (7) Business Day Period”), then, upon the written demand of RBB Bank Aktiengesellschaft (“RBB Bank”), the bolder of the Series 8 Class H Preferred Stock, for payment of the penalty described below in this Section 4.3, which demand must be received by the Corporation no later than ten (10) calendar days after the expiration of such Seven (7) Business Day Period, the Corporation shall pay to RBB Bank the following penalty for each business day after the Seven (7) Business Day Period until the Corporation delivers to the holder or its agent the certificate representing the shares of Common Stock that the holder is entitled to receive as a result of such conversion: business day eight (8) - U.S. $1,000; business day nine (9) - U.S. $2,000, and each business day thereafter an amount equal to the penalty due on the immediately preceding business day times two (2) until the Corporation delivers to the holder or its agent the certificate representing the shares of Common Stock that the holder is entitled to receive as a result of such conversion.

 

4.4 Merger or Consolidation.

Any funds so deposited and unclaimed at the end of one year following the Redemption Date shall be released or repaid to the Corporation, after which the former holders of shares called for redemption shall be entitled to receive payment of the Redemption Price in respect of their shares only from the Corporation.

The Liquidation Value of the Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock shall be $1,000 per outstanding share of the Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock (the “Liquidation Value”).

4.2 Conversion Price. Subject to the terms hereof, as used herein, the Conversion Price per outstanding share of Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock shall be $1.8125, except that, in the event the average closing bid price per share of the Common Stock as reported on the over-the-counter market, or the closing sale price if listed on a national securities exchange, for the five (5) trading days prior to the particular date of conversion shall be less than $2.265, the Conversion Price for only such particular conversion shall be the product of the average closing bid quotation of the Common Stock as reported on the over-the-counter market, or the closing sale price if listed on a national securities exchange, for the five (5) trading days immediately preceding the date of the Conversion Notice referred to in Section 4.3 below in connection with such conversion multiplied by eighty percent (80%), Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Conversion Price shall not be less than a minimum of $.75 per share (“Minimum Conversion Price”), which Minimum Conversion Price shall be eliminated from and after September 6, 1998. If any of the outstanding shares of Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock we converted, in whole or in part, into Common Stock pursuant to the terms of this Part 4, the number of shares of whole Common Stock to be issued to the holder as a result of such conversion shall be determined by dividing (a) the aggregate Liquidation Value of the Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock so surrendered for conversion by (b) the Conversion Price as of such conversion. At the time of conversion of shares of the Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock, the Corporation shall pay in cash to the holder thereof an amount equal to all unpaid and accrued dividends, if any, accrued thereon to the date of conversion, or, at the Corporation’s option, in lieu of paying cash for the accrued and unpaid dividends, issue that number of whole shares of Common Stock which is equal to the quotient of the amount of such unpaid and accrued dividends to the date of conversion on the shares of Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock so converted divided by the Stock Dividend Price, as defined in Part 3 hereof, in effect at the date of conversion.

Such conversion shall be deemed to have been made only after both the certificate for the shares of Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock to be converted have been surrendered and the Conversion Notice is received by the Corporation (the “Conversion Documents”), and the person or entity whose name is noted on the certificate evidencing such shares of Common Stock issuable upon such conversion shall be treated for all purposes as the record holder of such shares of Common Stock at and after such time.

Except as otherwise provided in this Section 5.1, at any time, and from time to time, after the expiration of one (1) year from the date of the first issuance of the Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock, the Corporation may, at its sole option, but shall not be obligated to, redeem, in whole or in part, at any time, and from time to time, the then outstanding Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock at the following cash redemption prices per share (the “Redemption Price”) if redeemed during the following periods: (a) within four (4) years from the date of the first issuance of Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock - $1,300 per share, if at any time during such four (4) year period the average of the closing bid price of the Common Stock for ten (10) consecutive trading days shall be in excess of Four U.S. Dollars ($4.00) per share, and (b) after four (4) years from the date of the first issuance of Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock - $1,000 per share.
   
5.2 Mechanics of Redemption. Thirty (30) days prior to any date stipulated by the Corporation for the redemption of Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock (the “Redemption Date”), written notice (the “Redemption Notice”) shall be mailed to each holder of record on such notice date of the Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock. The Redemption Notice shall state: (i) the Redemption Date of such shares, (ii) the number of Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock to be redeemed from the holder to whom the Redemption Notice is addressed, (iii) instructions for surrender to the Corporation, in the manner and at the place designated, of a share certificate or share certificates representing the number of Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock to be redeemed from such holder, and (iv) instructions as to how to specify to the Corporation the number of Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock to be redeemed as provided in this Part 5.
   
5.3 Rights of Conversion Upon Redemption. If the redemption occurs after the first one hundred eighty (180) days after the first issuance of Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock, then, upon receipt of the Redemption Notice, any holder of Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock shall have the option, at its sole election, to specify what portion of its Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock called for redemption in the Redemption Notice shall be redeemed as provided in this Part 5 or converted into Common Stock in the manner provided in Pan 4 hereof.
   
5.4 Surrender of Certificates. On or before the Redemption Date in respect of any Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock, each holder of such shares shall surrender the required certificate or certificates representing such shares to the Corporation in the manner and at the place designated in the Redemption Notice, and upon the Redemption Date, the Redemption Price for such shares shall be made payable, in the manner provided in Section 5.6 hereof, to the order of the person whose name appears on such certificate or certificates as the owner thereof. If a share certificate is surrendered and all the shares evidenced thereby are not being redeemed (as described below), the Corporation shall cause the Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock which are not being redeemed to be registered in the names of the persons or entity whose names appear as the owners on the respective surrendered share certificates and deliver such certificate to such person.

5.5 Payment. On the Redemption Date in respect of any Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock or prior thereto, the Corporation shall deposit with any bank or trust company having a capital and surplus of at least U. S. $50,000,000, as a trust fund, a sum equal to the aggregate Redemption Price of all such shares called from redemption (less the aggregate Redemption Price for those Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock in respect of which the Corporation has received notice from the holder thereof of its election to convert Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock into Common Stock), with irrevocable instructions and authority to the bank or trust company to pay, on or after the Redemption Date, the Redemption Price to the respective holders upon the surrender of their share certificates. The deposit shall constitute full payment for the shares to their holders, and from and after the date of the deposit the redeemed shares shall be deemed to be no longer outstanding, and holders thereof shall cease to be shareholders with respect to such shares and shall have no rights with respect thereto except the rights to receive from the bank or trust company payments of the Redemption Price of the shares, without interest, upon surrender of their certificates thereof. Any funds so deposited and unclaimed at the end of one year following the Redemption Date shall be released or repaid to the Corporation, after which the former holders of shares called for redemption shall be entitled to receive payment of the Redemption Price in respect of their shares only from the Corporation.

 

Part 6 - Parity with Other Shares of Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock and Priority.

 

6.1 Rateable Participation. If any cumulative dividends or return of capital in respect of Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock are not paid in full, the owners of all series of outstanding Preferred Stock shall participate rateably in respect of accumulated dividends and return of capital.
   
6.2 Ranking. For purposes of this resolution, any stock of any class or series of the Corporation shall be deemed to rank:

 

  6.2.1 Prior or senior to the shares of this Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock either as to dividends or upon liquidation, if the holders of such class or classes shall be entitled to the receipt of dividends or of amounts distributable upon dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Corporation, whether voluntary or involuntary, as the case may be, in preference or priority to the holders of shares of this Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock;
     
  6.2.2 On a parity with, or equal to, shares of this Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock, either as to dividends or upon liquidation, whether or not the dividend rates, dividend payment dates, or redemption or liquidation prices per share or sinking fund provisions, if any, are different from those of this Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock, if the holders of such stock are entitled to the receipt of dividends or of amounts distributable upon dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Corporation, whether voluntary or involuntary, in proportion to their respective dividend rates or liquidation prices, without preference or priority, one over the other, as between the holders of such stock and over the other, as between the holders of such stock and the holders of shares of this Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock; and,

  6.2.3 Junior to shares of this Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock, either as to dividends or upon liquidation, if such class or series shall be Common Stock or if the holders of shares of this Series 9 Class I Preferred Stock shall be entitled to receipt of dividends or of amounts distributable upon dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Corporation, whether voluntary or involuntary, as the case may be, in preference or priority to the holders of shares of such class or series.

 

Part 7 - Reissue.

Part 1 - Voting and Preemptive Rights.

 

1.1 Voting Rights. Except as otherwise provided herein, in the Corporation’s Certificate of Incorporation (the “Articles”) or the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “GCL”), the holders of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock shall have no voting rights whatsoever. To the extent that under the GCL the vote of the holders of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock, voting separately as a class or series as applicable, is required to authorize a given action of the Corporation, the affirmative vote or consent of the holders of at least a majority of the shares of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock represented at a duly held meeting at which a quorum is present or by written consent of a majority of the shares of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock (except as otherwise may be required under the GCL) shall constitute the approval of such action by the series. To the extent that under the GCL the holders of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock are entitled to vote on a matter with holders of Corporation’s Common Stock and/or any other class or series of the Corporation’s voting securities, the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock, the Corporation’s Common Stock and all other classes or series of the Corporation’s voting securities shall vote together as one class, with each share of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock entitled to a number of votes equal to the number of shares of the Corporation’s Common Stock into which it is then convertible using the record date for the taking of such vote of stockholders as the date as of which the Conversion Price (as defined in Section 4.2 hereof) is calculated and conversion is effected. Holders of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock shall be entitled to notice of (and copies of proxy materials and other information sent to stockholders) for all shareholder meetings or written consents with respect to which they would be entitled to vote, which notice would be provided pursuant to the Corporation’s bylaws and applicable statutes.

 

 

 

 

1.2 No Preemptive Rights. The Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock shall not give its holders any preemptive rights to acquire any other securities issued by the Corporation at any time in the future.

 

Part 2 - Liquidation Rights.

 

2.1 Liquidation. If the Corporation shall be voluntarily or involuntarily liquidated, dissolved or wound up at any time when any shares of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock shall be outstanding, the holders of the then outstanding Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock shall have a preference in distribution of the Corporation’s property available for distribution to the holders of the Corporation’s Common Stock equal to $1,000 consideration per outstanding share of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock, plus an amount equal to all unpaid dividends accrued thereon to the date of payment of such distribution (“Liquidation Preference”), whether or not declared by the Board.

 

2.2 Payment of Liquidation Preferences. Subject to the provisions of Part 6 hereof, all amounts to be paid as Liquidation Preference to the holders of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock, as provided in this Part 2, shall be paid or set apart for payment before the payment or setting apart for payment of any amount for, or the distribution of any of the Corporation’s property to the holders of the Corporation’s Common Stock, whether now or hereafter authorized, in connection with such liquidation, dissolution or winding up.

 

2.3 No Rights After Payment. After the payment to the holders of the shares of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock of the full Liquidation Preference amounts provided for in this Part 2, the holders of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock as such shall have no right or claim to any of the remaining assets of the Corporation.

 

2.4 Assets Insufficient to Pay Full Liquidation Preference. In the event that the assets of the Corporation available for distribution to the holders of shares of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock upon any dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Corporation, whether voluntary or involuntary, shall be insufficient to pay in full all amounts to which such holders are entitled pursuant to this Part 2, no such distribution shall be made on account of any shares of any other class or series of Preferred Stock ranking on a parity with the shares of this Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock upon such dissolution, liquidation or winding up unless proportionate distributive amounts shall be paid on account of the shares of this Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock and shares of such other class or series ranking on a parity with the shares of this Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock, ratably, in proportion to the full distributable amounts for which holders of all such parity shares are respectively entitled upon such dissolution, liquidation or winding up.

 

 

 

 

Part 3 - Dividends.

 

3.1 The holders of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock are entitled to receive if, when and as declared by the Board out of funds legally available therefor, cumulative dividends, payable in cash or Common Stock of the Corporation, par value $.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), at the Corporation’s election, at the rate of six percent (6%) per annum of the Liquidation Value of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock. The Liquidation Value of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock shall be $1,000.00 per share (the “Dividend Rate”). The dividend is payable semi-annually within seven (7) business days after each of December 31 and June 30 of each year, commencing December 31, 1996 (each, a “Dividend Declaration Date”). Dividends shall be paid only with respect to shares of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock actually issued and outstanding on a Dividend Declaration Date and to holders of record as of the Dividend Declaration Date. Dividends shall accrue from the first day of the semi-annual period in which such dividend may be payable, except with respect to the first semi-annual dividend which shall accrue from the date of issuance of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock. In the event that the Corporation elects to pay dividends in Common Stock of the Corporation, each holder of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock shall receive shares of Common Stock of the Corporation equal to the quotient of (i) the Dividend Rate in effect on the applicable Dividend Declaration Date dividend by (ii) the average of the closing bid quotation of the Common Stock as reported on the over-the-counter market, or the closing sale price if listed on a national securities exchange, for the five (5) trading days immediately prior to the Dividend Declaration Date (the “Stock Dividend Price”). Dividends on the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock shall be cumulative, and no dividends or other distributions shall be paid or declared or set aside for payment on the Common Stock until all accrued and unpaid dividends on all outstanding shares of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock shall have been paid or declared and set aside for payment.

 

Part 4 - Conversion. The holders of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock shall have rights to convert the shares of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock into shares of the Corporation’s Common Stock, par value $.001 per share (“Common Stock”), as follows (the “Conversion Rights”):

 

4.1 No Right to Convert. The Series 11 Class K Preferred shall not be convertible into shares of Common Stock until after July 15, 2000.

 

 

 

 

4.2 Right to Convert. The Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock may be convertible into shares of Common Stock at any time on or after July 15, 2000.

 

4.3 Conversion Price. As used herein, the term Conversion Price shall be the product of (i) the average closing bid quotation of the Common Stock as reported on the over-the-counter market, or the closing sale price if listed on a national securities exchange, for the five (5) trading days immediately preceding the date of the Conversion Notice referred to in Section 4.3 below multiplied by (ii) seventy-five percent (75%), subject to the provisions of this Section 4.3. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Conversion Price shall not be (i) less than a minimum of $1.50 per share for a period of twenty-four (24) months from the date of issuance of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock, or, after twenty-four (24) months from the date of issuance of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock, a minimum of $.50 per share (as applicable, the “Minimum Conversion Price”) or (ii) more than a maximum of $1.50 per share (“Maximum Conversion Price”). If, after July 1, 1996, the Corporation sustains a net loss, on a consolidated basis, in each of two (2) consecutive quarters, as determined under generally accepted accounting principles, the Minimum Conversion Price shall be reduced $.25 a share, but there shall be no change to, or reduction of, the Maximum Conversion Price. For the purpose of determining whether the Corporation has had a net loss in each of two (2) consecutive quarters, at no time shall a quarter that has already been considered in such determination be considered in any subsequent determination (as an example the third quarter of 1996 in which there is a net profit and the fourth quarter of 1996 in which there is a net loss shall be considered as two consecutive quarters, and, as a result, the fourth quarter of 1996 shall not be considered along with the first quarter of 1997 as two (2) consecutive quarters, but the first quarter of 1997 must be considered with the second quarter of 1997 for the purposes of such determination). For the purposes of this Section 4.2, a “quarter” is a three (3) month period ending on March 31, June 30, September 30, and December 31. If any of the outstanding shares of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock are converted, in whole or in part, into Common Stock pursuant to the terms of this Part 4, the number of shares of whole Common Stock to be issued to the holder as a result of such conversion shall be determined by dividing (a) the aggregate Liquidation Value of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock so surrendered for conversion by (b) the Conversion Price in effect at the date of the conversion. At the time of conversion of shares of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock, the Corporation shall pay in cash to the holder thereof an amount equal to all unpaid and accrued dividends, if any, accrued thereon to the date of conversion, or, at the Corporation’s option, in lieu of paying cash for the accrued and unpaid dividends, issue that number of shares of whole Common Stock which is equal to the product of dividing the amount of such unpaid and accrued dividends to the date of conversion on the shares of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock so converted by the Conversion Price in effect at the date of conversion.

 

 

 

 

4.4 Mechanics of Conversion. Any holder of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock who wishes to exercise its Conversion Rights pursuant to Section 4.1 of this Part 4 must, if such shares are not being held in escrow by the Corporation’s attorneys, surrender the certificate therefor at the principal executive office of the Corporation, and give written notice, which may be via facsimile transmission, to the Corporation at such office that it elects to convert the same (the “Conversion Notice”). In the event that the shares of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock are being held in escrow by the Corporation’s attorneys, no delivery of the certificates shall be required. No Conversion Notice with respect to any shares of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock can be given prior to the time such shares of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock are eligible for conversion in accordance with the provision of Section 4.1 above. Any such premature Conversion Notice shall automatically be null and void. The Corporation shall, within five (5) business days after receipt of an appropriate and timely Conversion Notice (and certificate, if necessary), issue to such holder of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock or its agent a certificate for the number of shares of Common Stock to which he shall be entitled; it being expressly agreed that until and unless the holder delivers written notice to the Corporation to the contrary, all shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock hereunder are to be delivered by the Corporation to a party designated in writing by the holder in the Conversion Notice for the account of the holder and such shall be deemed valid delivery to the holder of such shares of Common Stock. Such conversion shall be deemed to have been made only after both the certificate for the shares of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock to be converted have been surrendered and the Conversion Notice is received by the Corporation (or in the event that no surrender of the Certificate is required, then only upon the receipt by the Corporation of the Conversion Notice) (the “Conversion Documents”), and the person or entity whose name is noted on the certificate evidencing such shares of Common Stock issuable upon such conversion shall be treated for all purposes as the record holder of such shares of Common Stock at and after such time. In the event that the Conversion Notice is sent via facsimile transmission, the Corporation shall be deemed to have received such Conversion Notice on the first business day on which such facsimile Conversion Notice is actually received. If the Corporation fails to deliver to the holder or its agent the certificate representing the shares of Common Stock that the holder is entitled to receive as a result of such conversion within five (5) business days after receipt by the Corporation from the holder of an appropriate and timely Conversion Notice and certificates pursuant to the terms of this Section 4.3, the Corporation shall pay to the holder U.S. $1,000 for each day that the Corporation is late in delivering such certificate to the holder or its agent.

 

4.5 Adjustments to Conversion Price for Stock Dividends and for Combinations or Subdivisions of Common Stock. If the Corporation at any time or from time to time while shares of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock are issued and outstanding shall declare or pay, without consideration, any dividend on the Common Stock payable in Common Stock, or shall effect a subdivision of the outstanding shares of Common Stock into a greater number of shares of Common Stock (by stock split, reclassification or otherwise than by payment of a dividend in Common Stock or in any right to acquire Common Stock), or if the outstanding shares of Common Stock shall be combined or consolidated, by reclassification or otherwise, into a lesser number of shares of Common Stock, then the Conversion Price in effect immediately before such event shall, concurrently with the effectiveness of such event, be proportionately decreased or increased, as appropriate. If the Corporation shall declare or pay, without consideration, any dividend on the Common Stock payable in any right to acquire Common stock for no consideration, then the Corporation shall be deemed to have made a dividend payable in Common Stock in an amount of shares equal to the maximum number of shares issuable upon exercise of such rights to acquire Common Stock.

 

 

 

 

4.6. Adjustments for Reclassification and Reorganization. If the Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock shall be changed into the same or a different number of shares of any other class or classes of stock, whether by capital reorganization, reclassification or otherwise (other than a subdivision or combination of shares provided for in Section 4.4 hereof), the Conversion Price then in effect shall, concurrently with the effectiveness of such reorganization or reclassification, be proportionately adjusted so that the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock shall be convertible into, in lieu of the number of shares of Common Stock which the holders of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock would otherwise have been entitled to receive, a number of shares of such other class or classes of stock equivalent to the number of shares of Common Stock that would have been subject to receipt by the holders upon conversion of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock immediately before that change.

 

4.7 Common Stock Duly Issued. All Common Stock which may be issued upon conversion of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock will, upon issuance, be duly issued, fully paid and nonassessable and free from all taxes, liens, and charges with respect to the issue thereof.

 

4.8 Notice of Adjustments. Upon the occurrence of each adjustment or readjustment of any Conversion Price pursuant to this Part 4, the Corporation, at its expense, within a reasonable period of time, shall compute such adjustment or readjustment in accordance with the terms hereof and prepare and furnish to each holder of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock a notice setting forth such adjustment or readjustment and showing in detail the facts upon which such adjustment is based.

 

4.9 Issue Taxes. The Corporation shall pay any and all issue and other taxes that may be payable in respect of any issue or delivery of shares of Common Stock on conversion of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock pursuant thereto; provided, however, that the Corporation shall not be obligated to pay any transfer taxes resulting from any transfer requested by any holder of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock in connection with such conversion.

 

4.10 Reservation of Stock Issuable Upon Conversion. The Corporation shall at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock, solely for the purpose of effecting the conversion of the shares of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock, such number of its shares of Common Stock as shall, from time to time, be sufficient to effect the conversion of all outstanding shares of the Series 11 Class K Preferred stock, and, if at any time, the number of authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock shall not be sufficient to effect the conversion of all then outstanding shares of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock, the Corporation will take such corporate action as may be necessary to increase its authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock to such number of shares as shall be sufficient for such purposes, including, without limitation, engaging in reasonable efforts to obtain the requisite stockholder approval of any necessary amendment to its Certificate of Incorporation.

 

 

 

 

4.11 Fractional Shares. No fractional share shall be issued upon the conversion of any share or shares of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock. All shares of Common Stock (including fractions thereof) issuable upon conversion of more than one share of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock by a holder thereof shall be aggregated for purposes of determining whether the conversion would result in the issuance of any fractional share. If, after the aforementioned aggregation, the conversion would result in the issuance of a fractional share of Common Stock, such fractional share shall be rounded up to the nearest whole share.

 

4.12 Notices. Any notices required by the provisions of this Part 4 to be given to the holders of shares of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock shall be deemed given if deposited in the United States mail, postage prepaid, and addressed to each holder of record at his address appearing on the books of the Corporation.

 

4.13 Business Day. As used herein, the term “business day” shall mean any day other than a Saturday, Sunday or a day when the federal and state banks located in the State of New York are required or permitted to close.

 

Part 5 - Redemption.

 

5.1 Redemption at Corporation’s Option. Except as otherwise provided in this Section 5.1, at any time, and from time to time, the Corporation may, at its sole option, but shall not be obligated to, redeem, in whole or in part, at any time, and from time to time, The then outstanding Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock at the following cash redemption prices if redeemed during the following periods: (i) within one year from July 15, 1999 - $1,100 per share, and (ii) after one year from July 15, 1999 - $1,200 per share (as applicable, the redemption price of $1,100 or $1,200 is referred to herein as the “Redemption Price”).

 

5.2 Mechanics of Redemption. Prior to any date stipulated by the Corporation for the redemption of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock (the “Redemption Date”), written notice (the “Redemption Notice”) shall be mailed to each holder of record on such notice date of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock. The Redemption Notice shall state; (i) the Redemption Date of such shares, (ii) the number of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock to be redeemed from the holder to whom the Redemption Notice is addressed, (iii) instructions for surrender to the Corporation, in the manner and at the place designated, of a share certificate or share certificates representing the number of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock to be redeemed from such holder, and (iv) instructions as to how to specify to the Corporation the number of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock to be redeemed as provided in this Part 5 and, if the Redemption Notice is mailed to the Holder after the first year from the date of issuance of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock, the number of shares to be converted into Common Stock as provided in Part 4 hereof.

 

 

 

 

5.3 Mechanics of Redemption. Prior to any date stipulated by the Corporation for the redemption of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock (the “Redemption Date”), written notice (the “Redemption Notice”) shall be mailed to each holder of record on such notice date of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock. The Redemption Notice shall state: (i) the Redemption Date of such shares, (ii) the number of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock to be redeemed from the holder to whom the Redemption Notice is addressed, (iii) instructions for surrender to the Corporation, in the manner and at the place designated, of a share certificate or share certificates representing the number of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock to be redeemed from such holder, and (iv) instructions as to how to specify to the Corporation the number of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock to be redeemed as provided in this Part 5 and, if the Redemption Notice is mailed to the Holder after the first year from the date of issuance of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock, the number of shares to be converted into Common Stock as provided in Part 4 hereof.

 

5.4 Rights of Conversion Upon Redemption. If the redemption occurs during the first 12 months after the issuance of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock, the holder may not convert any redeemed shares. If the redemption occurs pursuant to Section 5.1 hereof, the Holder of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock shall not have the right to convert those outstanding shares of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock that the Company is redeeming after receipt of the Redemption Notice. If the redemption occurs pursuant to Section 5.2 hereof, then, upon receipt of the Redemption Notice, any holder of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock shall have the next five business days during which it may exercise the option, at its sole election, to specify what portion of its Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock called for redemption in the Redemption Notice shall be redeemed as provided in this Part 5 or converted into Common Stock in the manner provided in Part 4 hereof, except that, notwithstanding any provision of such Part 4 to the contrary, after one year from the date of first issuance of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock, such holder shall have the right to convert into Common Stock that number of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock called for redemption in the Redemption Notice.

 

5.5 Surrender of Certificates. On or before the Redemption Date in respect of any Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock, each holder of such shares shall surrender the required certificate or certificates representing such shares to the Corporation in the manner and at the place designated in the Redemption Notice, and upon the Redemption Date, the Redemption Price for such shares shall be made payable, in the manner provided in Section 5.5 hereof, to the order of the person whose name appears on such certificate or certificates as the owner thereof, and each surrendered share certificate shall be canceled and retired. If a share certificate is surrendered and all the shares evidenced thereby are not being redeemed (as described below), the Corporation shall cause the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock which are not being redeemed to be registered in the names of the persons or entity whose names appear as the owners on the respective surrendered share certificates and deliver such certificate to such person.

 

 

 

 

5.6 Payment. On the Redemption Date in respect of any Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock or prior thereto, the Corporation shall deposit with any bank or trust company having a capital and surplus of at least U. S. $50,000,000, as a trust fund, a sum equal to the aggregate First Year Redemption Price or the Redemption Price, whichever is applicable, of all such shares called from redemption (less the aggregate Redemption Price for those Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock in respect of which the Corporation has received notice from the holder thereof of its election to convert Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock into Common Stock), with irrevocable instructions and authority to the bank or trust company to pay, on or after the Redemption Date, the First Year Redemption Price or the Redemption Price, whichever is applicable, to the respective holders upon the surrender of their share certificates. The deposit shall constitute full payment for the shares to their holders, and from and after the date of the deposit the redeemed shares shall be deemed to be no longer outstanding, and holders thereof shall cease to be shareholders with respect to such shares and shall have no rights with respect thereto except the rights to receive from the bank or trust company payments of the First Year Redemption Price or the Redemption Price, whichever is applicable, of the shares, without interest, upon surrender of their certificates thereof. Any funds so deposited and unclaimed at the end of one year following the Redemption Date shall be released or repaid to the Corporation, after which the former holders of shares called for redemption shall be entitled to receive payment of the First Year Redemption Price or the Redemption Price, whichever is applicable, in respect of their shares only from the Corporation.

6.2 Ranking. For purposes of this resolution, any stock of any class or series of the Corporation shall be deemed to rank:

 

6.2.1 Prior or senior to the shares of this Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock either as to dividends or upon liquidation, if the holders of such class or classes shall be entitled to the receipt of dividends or of amounts distributable upon dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Corporation, whether voluntary or involuntary, as the case may be, in preference or priority to the holders of shares of this Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock;

 

6.2.2 On a parity with, or equal to, shares of this Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock, either as to dividends or upon liquidation, whether or not the dividend rates, dividend payment dates, or redemption or liquidation prices per share or sinking fund provisions, if any, are different from those of this Series 3 Class C Preferred Stock, if the holders of such stock are entitled to the receipt of dividends or of amounts distributable upon dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Corporation, whether voluntary or involuntary, in proportion to their respective dividend rates or liquidation prices, without preference or priority, one over the other, as between the holders of such stock and over the other, as between the holders of such stock and the holders of shares of this Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock; and,

 

 

 

 

6.2.3 Junior to shares of this Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock, either as to dividends or upon liquidation, if such class or series shall be Common Stock or if the holders of shares of this Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock shall be entitled to receipt of dividends or of amounts distributable upon dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Corporation, whether voluntary or involuntary, as the case may he, in preference or priority to the holders of shares of such class or series.

 

Part 7 - Amendment and Reissue.

 

7.1 Amendment. If any proposed amendment to the Corporation’s Certificate of Incorporation would alter or change the powers, preferences or special rights of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock so as to affect such adversely, then the Corporation must obtain the affirmative vote of such amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation at a duly called and held series meeting of the holders of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock or written consent by the holders of a majority of the Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock then outstanding. Notwithstanding the above, the number of authorized shares of any class or classes of stock may be increased or decreased (but not below the number of shares thereof outstanding) by the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the stock of the Corporation entitled to vote thereon, voting together as a single class, irrespective of this Section 7.1 or the requirements of Section 242 of the GCL.

 

7.2 Authorized. Any shares of Series 11 Class K Preferred Stock acquired by the Corporation by reason of purchase, conversion, redemption or otherwise shall be retired and shall become authorized but unissued shares of Preferred Stock, which may be reissued as part of a new series of Preferred Stock hereafter created.

1.2 No Preemptive Rights. The Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock shall not give its holders any preemptive rights to acquire any other securities issued by the Corporation at any time in the future.

 

-1-

 

 

Part 2 - Liquidation Rights.

 

2.1 Liquidation. If the Corporation shall be voluntarily or involuntarily liquidated, dissolved or wound up at any time when any shares of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock shall be outstanding, the holders of the then outstanding Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock shall have a preference in distribution of the Corporation’s property available for distribution to the holders of the Corporation’s Common Stock equal to $1,000 consideration per outstanding share of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock, plus an amount equal to all unpaid dividends accrued thereon to the date of payment of such distribution (“Liquidation Preference”), whether or not declared by the Board.

 

2.2 Payment of Liquidation Preferences. Subject to the provisions of Part 6 hereof, all amounts to be paid as Liquidation Preference to the holders of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock, as provided in this Part 2, shall be paid or set apart for payment before the payment or setting apart for payment of any amount for, or the distribution of any of the Corporation’s property to the holders of the Corporation’s Common Stock, whether now or hereafter authorized, in connection with such liquidation, dissolution or winding up.

In the event that the assets of the Corporation available for distribution to the holders of shares of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock upon any dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Corporation, whether voluntary or involuntary, shall be insufficient to pay in full all amounts to which such holders are entitled pursuant to this Part 2, no such distribution shall be made on account of any shares of any other class or series of Preferred Stock ranking on a parity with the shares of this Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock upon such dissolution, liquidation or winding up unless proportionate distributive amounts shall be paid on account of the shares of this Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock and shares of such other class or series ranking on a parity with the shares of this Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock, ratably, in proportion to the full distributable amounts for which holders of all such parity shares are respectively entitled upon such dissolution, liquidation or winding up.

 

-2-

 

 

Part 3 - Dividends. The holders of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock are entitled to receive if, when and as declared by the Board out of funds legally available therefor, cumulative dividends, payable in cash or Common Stock of the Corporation, par value $.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), or any combination thereof, at the Corporation’s election, at the rate of four percent (4%) per annum of the Liquidation Value (as defined below) of each issued and outstanding share of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock (the “Dividend Rate”). The Liquidation Value of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock shall be $1,000 per outstanding share of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock (the “Liquidation Value”). The dividend is payable semi-annually within seven (7) business days after each of December 31 and June 30 of each year, commencing June 30, 1998 (each, a “Dividend Declaration Date”). Dividends shall be paid only with respect to shares of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock actually issued and outstanding on a Dividend Declaration Date and to holders of record of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock as of the Dividend Declaration Date. Dividends shall accrue from the first day of the semi-annual period in which such dividend may be payable, except with respect to the first semi-annual dividend which shall accrue from March 1, 1998. In the event that the Corporation elects to pay the accrued dividends due as of a Dividend Declaration Date on an outstanding share of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock in Common Stock of the Corporation, the holder of such share shall receive that number of shares of Common Stock of the Corporation equal to the product of (a) the quotient of (i) the Dividend Rate divided by (ii) the average of the closing bid quotation of the Corporation’s Common Stock as reported on the National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotation system (“NASDAQ”), or the average closing sale price if listed on a national securities exchange, for the five (5) trading days immediately prior to the Dividend Declaration Date (the “Stock Dividend Price”), times (b) a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of days elapsed during the period for which the dividend is to be paid and the denominator of which is 365. Dividends on the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock shall be cumulative, and no dividends or other distributions shall be paid or declared or set aside for payment on the Corporation’s Common Stock until all accrued and unpaid dividends on all outstanding shares of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock shall have been paid or declared and set aside for payment.

 

Part 4 - Conversion. The holders of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock shall have rights to convert the shares of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock into shares of the Corporation’s Common Stock, par value $.001 per share (“Common Stock”), as follows (the “Conversion Rights”):

 

4.1 No Right to convert. The Series 12 Class L Preferred shall not be convertible into shares of Common Stock until after July 15, 2000.
   
4.2 Right to Convert. The Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock may be convertible into shares of Common Stock at any time after July 15, 2000.

 

-3-

 

 

4.3 Conversion Price. Subject to the terms hereof, as used herein, the Conversion Price per outstanding share of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock shall be $1.8125, except that, in the event the average closing bid price per share of the Common Stock as reported on the over-the-counter market, or the closing sale price if listed on a national securities exchange, for the five (5) trading days prior to the particular date of conversion shall be less than $2.265, the Conversion Price for only such particular conversion shall be the product of the average closing bid quotation of the Common Stock as reported on the over-the-counter market, or the closing sale price if listed on a national securities exchange, for the five (5) trading days immediately preceding the date of the Conversion Notice referred to in Section 4.3 below in connection with such conversion multiplied by eighty percent (80%), subject to the provisions of this Section 4.3. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Conversion Price shall not be less than a minimum of $1.50 per share (“Minimum Conversion Price”) for a period of twenty-four (24) months from the date of issuance of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock. If any of the outstanding shares of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock are converted, in whole or in part, into Common Stock pursuant to the terms of this Part 4, the number of shares of whole Common Stock to be issued to the holder as a result of such conversion shall be determined by dividing (a) the aggregate Liquidation Value of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock so surrendered for conversion by (b) the Conversion Price as of such conversion. At the time of conversion of shares of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock, the Corporation shall pay in cash to the holder thereof an amount equal to all unpaid and accrued dividends, if any, accrued thereon to the date of conversion, or, at the Corporation’s option, in lieu of paying cash for the accrued and unpaid dividends, issue that number of whole shares of Common Stock which is equal to the quotient of the amount of such unpaid and accrued dividends to the date of conversion on the shares of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock so converted divided by the Stock Dividend Price, as defined in Part 3 hereof, in effect at the date of conversion.

4.3 Mechanics of Conversion. Any holder of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock who wishes to exercise its Conversion Rights pursuant to Section 4.1 of this Part 4 must, if such shares are not being held in escrow by the Corporation’s attorneys, surrender the certificate therefor at the principal executive office of the Corporation, and give written notice, which may be via facsimile transmission, to the Corporation at such office that it elects to convert the same (the “Conversion Notice”). In the event that the shares of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock are being held in escrow by the Corporation’s attorneys, no delivery of the certificates shall be required. The Corporation shall, within five (5) business days after receipt of an appropriate and timely Conversion Notice (and certificate, if necessary), issue to such holder of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock or its agent a certificate for the number of shares of Common Stock to which he shall be entitled; it being expressly agreed that until and unless the holder delivers written notice to the Corporation to the contrary, all shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock hereunder are to be delivered by the Corporation to a party designated in writing by the holder in the Conversion Notice for the account of the holder and such shall be deemed valid delivery to the holder of such shares of Common Stock. Such conversion shall be deemed to have been made only after both the certificate for the shares of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock to be converted have been surrendered and the Conversion Notice is received by the Corporation (or in the event that no surrender of the Certificate is required, then only upon the receipt by the Corporation of the Conversion Notice) (the “Conversion Documents”), and the person or entity whose name is noted on the certificate evidencing such shares of Common Stock issuable upon such conversion shall be treated for all purposes as the record holder of such shares of Common Stock at and after such time. In the event that the Conversion Notice is sent via facsimile transmission, the Corporation shall be deemed to have received such Conversion Notice on the first business day on which such facsimile Conversion Notice is actually received. If the Corporation fails to deliver to the holder or its agent the certificate representing the shares of Common Stock that the holder is entitled to receive as a result of such conversion of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock within seven (7) business days after receipt by the Corporation from the holder of an appropriate and timely Conversion Notice and certificates pursuant to the terms of this Section 4.3 (“Seven (7) Business Day Period”), then, upon the written demand of RBB Bank Aktiengesellschaft (“RBB Bank”), the holder of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock, for payment of the penalty described below in this Section 4.3, which demand must be received by the Corporation no later than ten (10) calendar days after the expiration of such Seven (7) Business Day Period, the Corporation shall pay to RBB Bank the following penalty for each business day after the Seven (7) Business Day Period until the Corporation delivers to the holder or its agent the certificate representing the shares of Common Stock that the holder is entitled to receive as a result of such conversion: business day eight (8) - U.S. $1,000; business day nine (9) - U.S. $2,000, and each business day thereafter an amount equal to the penalty due on the immediately preceding business day times two (2) until the Corporation delivers to the holder or its agent the certificate representing the shares of Common Stock that the holder is entitled to receive as a result of such conversion.

 

4.4 Merger or Consolidation. In case of either (a) any merger or consolidation to which the Corporation is a party (collectively, the “Merger”), other than a Merger in which the Corporation is the surviving or continuing corporation, or (b) any sale or conveyance to another corporation of all, or substantially all, of the assets of the Corporation (collectively, the “Sale”), and such Merger or Sale becomes effective (x) while any shares of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock are outstanding and prior to the date that the Corporation’s Registration Statement covering up to 1,379,311 shares of Common Stock issuable upon the conversion of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock is declared effective by the U. S. Securities and Exchange Commission or (y) prior to the end of the restriction periods in Section 4.1, then, in such event, the Corporation or such successor corporation, as the case may be, shall make appropriate provision so that the holder of each share of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock then outstanding shall have the right to convert such share of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock into the kind and amount of shares of stock or other securities and property receivable upon such Merger or Sale by a holder of the number of shares of Common Stock into which such shares of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock could have been converted into immediately prior to such Merger or Sale, subject to adjustments which shall be as nearly equivalent as may be practicable to the adjustments provided for in this Part 4.

 

-5-

 

 

4.5 Adjustments to Conversion Price for Stock Dividends and for Combinations or Subdivisions of Common Stock. If the Corporation at any time or from time to time while shares of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock are issued and outstanding shall declare or pay, without consideration, any dividend on the Common Stock payable in Common Stock, or shall effect a subdivision of the outstanding shares of Common Stock into a greater number of shares of Common Stock (by stock split, reclassification or otherwise man by payment of a dividend in Common Stock or in any right to acquire Common Stock), or if the outstanding shares of Common Stock shall be combined or consolidated, by reclassification or otherwise, into a lesser number of shares of Common Stock, then the Conversion Price in effect immediately before such event shall, concurrently with the effectiveness of such event, be proportionately decreased or increased, as appropriate.

 

4.6 Adjustments for Reclassification and Reorganization. If the Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock shall be changed into the same or a different number of shares of any other class or classes of stock, whether by capital reorganization, reclassification or otherwise (other than a subdivision or combination of shares provided for in Section 4.4 hereof), the Conversion Price shall, concurrently with the effectiveness of such reorganization or reclassification, be proportionately adjusted so that the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock shall be convertible into, in lieu of the number of shares of Common Stock which the holders of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock would otherwise have been entitled to receive, a number of shares of such other class or classes of stock equivalent to the number of shares of Common Stock that would have been subject to receipt by the holders upon conversion of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock immediately before that change.

 

4.7 Common Stock Duly Issued. All Common Stock which may be issued upon conversion of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock will, upon issuance, be duly issued, fully paid and nonassessable and free from all taxes, liens, and charges with respect to the issue thereof.

 

4.8 Notice of Adjustments. Upon the occurrence of each adjustment or readjustment of any Conversion Price pursuant to this Part 4, the Corporation, at its expense, within a reasonable period of time, shall compute such adjustment or readjustment in accordance with the terms hereof and prepare and furnish to each holder of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock a notice setting forth such adjustment or readjustment and showing in detail the facts upon which such adjustment is based.

 

-6-

 

 

4.9 Issue Taxes. The Corporation shall pay any and all issue and other taxes that may be payable in respect of any issue or delivery of shares of Common Stock on conversion of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock pursuant thereto; provided, however, that the Corporation shall not be obligated to pay any transfer taxes resulting from any transfer requested by any holder of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock in connection with such conversion.

 

4.10 Reservation of Stock Issuable Upon Conversion. The Corporation shall at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock, solely for the purpose of effecting the conversion of the shares of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock, such number of its shares of Common Stock as shall, from time to time, be sufficient to effect the conversion of all outstanding shares of the Series 12 Class L Preferred stock, and, if at any time, the number of authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock shall not be sufficient to effect the conversion of all then outstanding shares of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock, the Corporation will take such corporate action as may be necessary to increase its authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock to such number of shares as shall be sufficient for such purposes, including, without limitation, engaging in reasonable efforts to obtain the requisite stockholder approval of any necessary amendment to its Certificate of Incorporation.

 

4.11 Fractional Shares. No fractional shares shall be issued upon the conversion of any share or shares of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock. All shares of Common Stock (including fractions thereof) issuable upon conversion of more than one share of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock by a holder thereof shall be aggregated for purposes of determining whether the conversion would result in the issuance of any fractional share, If, after the aforementioned aggregation, the conversion would result in the issuance of a fractional share of Common Stock, such fractional share shall be rounded up to the nearest whole share.

 

4.12 Notices. Any notices required by the provisions of this Part 4 to be given to the holders of shares of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock shall be deemed given if deposited in the United States mail, postage prepaid, and addressed to each holder of record at his address appearing on the books of the Corporation.

 

4.13 Business Day. As used herein, the term “business day” shall mean any day other than a Saturday, Sunday or a day when the federal and state banks located in the State of New York are required or is permitted to close.

Part 5 - Redemption.

 

5.1 Redemption at Corporation’s Option. Except as otherwise provided in this Section 5.1, at any time, and from time to time, the Corporation may, at its sole option, but shall not be obligated to, redeem, in whole or in part, at any time, and from time to time, (i) for a period of 120 days from the date of issuance of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock up to an aggregate of 300 shares of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock at the cash redemption price of $1,000 per share, and (ii) the then outstanding Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock at the following cash redemption prices if redeemed during the following periods: (a) within one year from July 15, 1999 - $1,100 per share, except as otherwise provided in (i) above and (b) after one year from July 15, 1999 - $1,200 per share (as applicable, the redemption price of $1,000, $1,100 or $1,200 is referred to herein as the “Redemption Price”).

 

5.2 Mechanics of Redemption. Prior to any date stipulated by the Corporation for the redemption of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock (the “Redemption Date”), written notice (the “Redemption Notice”) shall be mailed to each holder of record on such notice date of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock. The Redemption Notice shall state: (i) the Redemption Date of such shares, (ii) the number of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock to be redeemed from the holder to whom the Redemption Notice is addressed, (iii) instructions for surrender to the Corporation, in the manner and at the place designated, of a share certificate or share certificates representing the number of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock to be redeemed from such holder, and (iv) instructions as to how to specify to the Corporation the number of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock to be redeemed as provided in this Part 5 and, if the Redemption Notice is mailed to the Holder after the first year from the date of issuance of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock, the number of shares to be converted into Common Stock as provided in Part 4 hereof.

 

5.3 Rights of Conversion Upon Redemption. If the redemption occurs during the first 12 months after the issuance of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock, the holder may not convert any redeemed shares. If the redemption occurs after the first twelve months after the first issuance of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock, then, upon receipt of the Redemption Notice, any holder of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock shall have five business days during which it may exercise the option, at its sole election, to specify what portion of its Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock called for redemption in the Redemption Notice shall be redeemed as provided in this Part 5 or converted into Common Stock in the manner provided in Part 4 hereof, except that, notwithstanding any provision of such Part 4 to the contrary, after one year from the date of first issuance of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock, such holder shall have the right to convert into Common Stock that number of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock called for redemption in the Redemption Notice.

 

-8-

 

 

5.4 Surrender of Certificates. On or before the Redemption Date in respect of any Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock, each holder of such shares shall surrender the required certificate or certificates representing such shares to the Corporation in the manner and at the place designated in the Redemption Notice, and upon the Redemption Date, the Redemption Price for such shares shall be made payable, in the manner provided in Section 5.6 hereof, to me order of the person whose name appears on such certificate or certificates as the owner thereof, and each surrendered share certificate shall be canceled and retired. If a share certificate is surrendered and all the shares evidenced thereby are not being redeemed (as described below), the Corporation shall cause the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock which are not being redeemed to be registered in the names of the persons or entity whose names appear as the owners on the respective surrendered share certificates and deliver such certificate to such person.

 

5.5 Payment. On the Redemption Date in respect of any Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock or prior thereto, the Corporation shall deposit with any bank or trust company having a capital and surplus of at least $50,000,000, as a trust fund, a sum equal to the aggregate Redemption Price of all such shares called from redemption (less the aggregate Redemption Price for those Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock in respect of which the Corporation has received notice from the holder thereof of its election to convert Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock into Common Stock), with irrevocable instructions and authority to the bank or trust company to pay, on or after the Redemption Date, the Redemption Price to the respective holders upon the surrender of their share certificates. The deposit shall constitute full payment for the shares to their holders, and from and after the date of the deposit the redeemed shares shall be deemed to be no longer outstanding, and holders thereof shall cease to be shareholders with respect to such shares and shall have no rights with respect thereto except the rights to receive from the bank or trust company payments of the Redemption Price of the shares, without interest, upon surrender of their certificates thereof. Any funds so deposited and unclaimed at the end of one year following the Redemption Date shall be released or repaid to the Corporation, after which the former holders of shares called for redemption shall be entitled to receive payment of the Redemption Price in respect of their shares only from the Corporation.

 

Part 6 - Parity with Other Shares of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock and Priority.

 

6.1 Rateable Participation. If any cumulative dividends or return of capital in respect of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock are not paid in full, the owners of all series of outstanding Preferred Stock shall participate rateably in respect of accumulated dividends and return of capital.

6.2             Ranking. For purposes of this resolution, any stock of any class or series of the Corporation shall be deemed to rank:

 

  6.2.1 Prior or senior to the shares of this Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock either as to dividends or upon liquidation, if the holders of such class or classes shall be entitled to the receipt of dividends or of amounts distributable upon dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Corporation, whether voluntary or involuntary, as the case may be, in preference or priority to the holders of shares of this Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock;
     
  6.2.2 On a parity with, or equal to, shares of this Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock, either as to dividends or upon liquidation, whether or not the dividend rates, dividend payment dates, or redemption or liquidation prices per share or sinking fund provisions, if any, are different from those of this Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock, if the holders of such stock are entitled to the receipt of dividends or of amounts distributable upon dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Corporation, whether voluntary or involuntary, in proportion to their respective dividend rates or liquidation prices, without preference or priority, one over the other, as between the holders of such stock and over the other, as between the holders of such stock and the holders of shares of this Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock; and,
     
  6.2.3 Junior to shares of this Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock, either as to dividends or upon liquidation, if such class or series shall be Common Stock or if the holders of shares of this Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock shall be entitled to receipt of dividends or of amounts distributable upon dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Corporation, whether voluntary or involuntary, as the case may be, in preference or priority to the holders of shares of such class or series.

Part 7 - Amendment and Reissue.

 

7.1 Amendment. If any proposed amendment to the Corporation’s Certificate of Incorporation (the “Articles”) would alter or change the powers, preferences or special rights of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock so as to affect such adversely, then the Corporation must obtain the affirmative vote of such amendment to the Articles at a duly called and held series meeting of the holders of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock or written consent by the holders of a majority of the Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock then outstanding. Notwithstanding the above or the provisions of Section 242(b)(2) of the GCL, the number of authorized shares of any class or classes of stock of the Corporation may be increased or decreased (but not below the number of shares thereof outstanding) by the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the stock of the Corporation entitled to vote thereon, voting together as a single class, irrespective of the provisions of this Section 7.1 or Section 242(b)(2) of the GCL.

 

7.2 Authorized. Any shares of Series 12 Class L Preferred Stock acquired by the Corporation by reason of purchase, conversion, redemption or otherwise shall be retired and shall become authorized but unissued shares of Preferred Stock, which may be reissued as part of a new series of Preferred Stock hereafter created.

RE: DESIGNATION OF SERIES 13 CLASS M PREFERRED STOCK.

 

RESOLVED: That The designations, powers, preferences and rights of the Series 13 Class M Convertible Preferred Stock be, and they hereby are, as set forth below:

 

1. Number of Shares of Common Stock of Series 13 Class M Convertible Preferred Stock

 

The Corporation hereby authorizes the issuance of up to two thousand two hundred fifty-two (2,252) shares of Series 13 Class M Convertible Preferred Stock par value $.001 per share (the “Preferred Stock”). This Preferred Stock shall pay an annual dividend based on a 365 day calendar year of 4% of the Liquidation Value (as defined in Section 3 hereof) (“Dividend Rate”), payable semiannually within ten (10) business days after each subsequent June 30th and December 31st (each a “Dividend Declaration Date”), and shall be payable in cash or shares of the Corporation’s par value $.001 per share common stock (Common Stock) at the Corporation’s option. The first Dividend Declaration Date shall be December 31st, 1998.

 

In the event that the Corporation elects to pay the accrued dividends due as of a Dividend Declaration Date on the outstanding shares of Preferred Stock in Common Stock of the Corporation, the Holder of each share of Preferred Stock shall receive that number of shares of Common Stock equal to the product of (a) the quotient of (i) the Dividend Rate divided by (ii) the average of the closing bid quotation of the Corporation’s Common Stock as reported on the National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotation system (“NASDAQ”), or if the Common Stock is not listed for trading on the NASDAQ but is listed for trading on a national securities exchange, the average closing bid price of the Common Stock as quoted on such national exchange, for the five (5) trading days immediately prior to the Dividend Declaration Date (the “Stock Dividend Price”), times (b) a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of days elapsed during the period for which the dividend is to be paid, and the denominator of which is 365. Dividends on the Preferred Stock shall be cumulative, and no dividends or other distributions shall be paid or declared or set aside for payment on the Corporation’s Common Stock until all accrued and unpaid dividends on all outstanding shares of Preferred Stock shall have been paid or declared and set aside for payment.

2. Voting.

 

Except as provided under Section 242 of the GCL, holders of Preferred Stock (the “Holders”) shall not have the right to vote on any matter. Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 242 of the GCL or Section 4 hereof, the number of authorized shares of any class or classes of stock of the Corporation may be increased or decreased (but not below the number of shares thereof outstanding) by the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the stock of the Corporation entitled to vote thereon, voting together as a single class, irrespective of the provisions of Section 242 of the GCL.

 

3. Liquidation.

 

In the event of a voluntary or involuntary dissolution, liquidation, or winding up of the Corporation, the Holders of Preferred Stock shall be entitled to receive out of the assets of the Corporation legally available for distribution to holders of its capital stock, before any payment or distribution shall be made to holders of shares of Common Stock or any other class of stock ranking junior to the Preferred Stock, an amount per share of Preferred Stock equal to $1,000 (the “Liquidation Value”) plus any accrued and unpaid dividends on the Preferred Stock. If upon such liquidation, dissolution, or winding up of the Corporation, whether voluntary or involuntary, the assets to be distributed among the Holders of Preferred Stock shall be insufficient to permit payment to the Holders of Preferred Stock of the amount distributable as aforesaid, then the entire assets of the Corporation to be so distributed shall be distributed ratably among the Holders of Preferred Stock and shares of such other classes or series ranking on a parity with the shares of this Preferred Stock in proportion to the full distributable amounts for which holders of all such parity shares are entitled upon such distribution, liquidation, or winding up. Upon any such liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Corporation, after the Holders of Preferred Stock shall have been paid in full the amounts to which they shall be entitled, the remaining net assets of the Corporation may be distributed to the holders of stock ranking on liquidation junior to the Preferred Stock and the Holders of the Preferred Stock shall have no right or claim to any of the remaining assets of the Corporation. Written notice of such liquidation, dissolution or winding up, stating a payment date, the amount of the liquidation payments and the place where said liquidation payments shall be payable, shall be given by mail, postage prepaid or by telex or facsimile to non-U.S. residents, not less than 10 days prior to the payment date stated therein, to the Holders of record of Preferred Stock, such notice to be addressed to each such Holder at its address as shown by the records of the Corporation. For purposes hereof the shares of Common Stock, shall rank on liquidation junior to the Preferred Stock.

 

4. Restrictions.

 

The Corporation will not amend or modify the terms of its Restated Certificate of Incorporation so as to adversely alter or change the Preferred Stock at any time when shares of Preferred Stock are outstanding, without the approval of the Holders of at least a majority of the then outstanding shares of Preferred Stock given in writing or by vote at a meeting, consenting or voting (as the case may be) separately as a series, except where the vote or written consent of the Holders of a greater number of shares of Common Stock of the Corporation is required by law or by the Corporation’s Certificate of Incorporation, as amended.

5. Optional Conversion.

 

The Holders of shares of Preferred Stock shall have the following conversion rights to convert the shares of Preferred Stock into shares of Common Stock of the Corporation:

 

(a) No Right to Convert. The Preferred Stock shall not be convertible into shares of Common Stock until after July 15, 2000.

 

(b) Conversion Dates. The Preferred Stock may be convertible into shares of Common Stock at any time after July 15, 2000.

 

(c) Right to Convert; Conversion Price. Subject to the terms hereof, as used herein, the term Conversion Price per outstanding share of Preferred Stock shall be One Dollar and 875/100 ($1.875); except that after the expiration of one hundred and eighty (180) days after the Closing Date if the average of the closing bid price per share of Common Stock quoted on the NASDAQ (or the closing bid price of the Common Stock as quoted on the national securities exchange if the Common Stock is not listed for trading on the NASDAQ but is listed for trading on a national securities exchange) for the five (5) trading days immediately prior to the particular date of each Conversion Notice (as defined below) is less than Two Dollars and 34/100 ($2.34), then the Conversion Price for that particular conversion shall be eighty percent (80%) of the average of the closing bid price of the Common Stock on the NASDAQ (or if the Common Stock is not listed for trading on the NASDAQ but is listed for trading on a national securities exchange then eighty percent (80%) of the average of the closing bid price of the Common Stock on the national securities exchange) for the five (5) trading days immediately prior to the particular date of the Conversion Notice. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Conversion Price shall not be less than a minimum of $1.50 per share (“Minimum Conversion Price”) for a period of twenty-four (24) months from the date of issuance of the Preferred Stock.

 

If any of the outstanding shares of Preferred Stock are converted, in whole or in part, into Common Stock pursuant to the terms of this Section 5(b), the number of shares of whole Common Stock to be issued to the Holder as a result of such conversion shall be determined by dividing (a) the aggregate Stated Value of the Preferred Stock so surrendered for conversion by (b) the Conversion Price in effect on the date of that particular Conversion Notice relating to such conversion. At the time of conversion of shares of the Preferred Stock, the Corporation shall pay in cash to the holder thereof an amount equal to all unpaid and accrued dividends, if any, accrued thereon on the shares of Preferred so converted to the date of the Conversion Notice relating to such conversion, or, at the Corporation’s option, in lieu of paying cash for the accrued and unpaid dividends, issue that number of shares of whole Common Stock which is equal to the quotient of the amount of such unpaid and accrued dividends to the date of the Conversion Notice relating to such conversion of the shares of Preferred Stock so converted divided by the Stock Dividend Price, in effect at the date of the Conversion Notice relating to such conversion.

 

 -3- 

 

 

(c) Conversion Notice. The right of conversion shall be exercised by the Holder thereof by telecopying or faxing an executed and completed written notice signed by an authorized representative of the Holder, (“Conversion Notice”) to the Corporation that the Holder elects to convert a specified number of shares of Preferred Stock representing a specified Stated Value thereof into shares of Common Stock and by delivering by express courier the certificate or certificates of Preferred Stock being converted to the Corporation at its principal office (or such other office or agency of the Corporation as the Corporation may designate by notice in writing to the Holders of the Preferred Stock). The business date indicated on a Conversion Notice which is telecopied to and received by the Corporation in accordance with the provisions hereof shall be deemed a Conversion Date. The Conversion Notice shall include therein the Stated Value of shares of Preferred Stock to be converted, and a calculation (a) of the Stock Dividend Price, (b) the Conversion Price, and (c) the number of Shares of Common Stock to be issued in connection with such conversion. The Corporation shall have the right to review the calculations included in the Conversion Notice, and shall provide notice of any discrepancy or dispute therewith within three (3) business days of the receipt thereof. The Holder shall deliver to the Corporation an original Conversion Notice and the original Preferred to be converted within three (3) business days from the date of the Conversion Notice.

 

(d) Issuance of Certificates - Time Conversion Effected. Promptly, but in no event more than six (6) business days, after the receipt by facsimile of the Conversion Notice referred to in Subparagraph (5)(c); and provided within the six (6) business days the Corporation receives the certificate or certificates for the shares of Preferred Stock to be converted, the Corporation shall issue and deliver, or cause to be issued and delivered, to the Holder, registered in the name of the Holder, a certificate or certificates for the number of whole shares of Common Stock into which such shares of Preferred Stock are converted. Such conversion shall be deemed to have been effected as of the close of business on the date on which the telecopy or facsimile Conversion Notice shall have been received by the Corporation, and the rights of the Holder of such share or shares of Preferred Stock shall cease, at such time, and the Holder or Holders shall be deemed to have become the Holder or Holders of record of the shares of Common Stock represented thereby.

 

In the event that the shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Preferred, is not delivered within six (6) business days of the date the Company receives the Conversion Notice, the Company shall pay to the Buyer, by wire transfer, as liquidated damages for such failure and not as a penalty, for each $100,000 of Preferred sought to be converted, $500 for each of the first five (5) calendar days and $1,000 per calendar day thereafter that the shares of Common Stock are not delivered, which liquidated damages shall begin to run from the seventh (7th) business day after the Conversion Date. Any and all payments required pursuant to this paragraph shall be payable only in cash. Notwithstanding the above, liquidated damages shall not exceed $2,000.00 per day. In addition to the liquidated damages set forth herein, in the event the Company fails to deliver the shares of Common Stock within six (6) business days after the Conversion date, the Company agrees to issue the larger number of shares of Common Stock derived from (i) the original Conversion Notice, or (ii) utilizing the five lowest closing bid prices of the Company’s shares of Common Stock beginning on the Conversion Date and ending on the day the shares of Common Stock are delivered. The Company understands that a delay in the issuance of the shares of Common Stock could result in economic loss to the Holder. Nothing contained herein, or in the Preferred shall limit the Holder’s rights to pursue actual damages for the Company’s failure to issue and deliver shares of Common Stock to the Holder in accordance with the terms of the Certificate of Designations, and this Agreement.

 

 -4- 

 

 

(e) Fractional Shares of Common Stock. No fractional shares of Common Stock shall be issued upon conversion of any Preferred Stock into shares of Common Stock. All fractional shares of Common Stock shall be aggregated and then rounded down to the nearest whole share of Common Stock. In case the number of shares of Preferred Stock represented by the certificate or certificates surrendered pursuant to Subparagraph 5(b) exceeds the number of shares of Common Stock converted, the Corporation shall, upon such conversion, execute and deliver to the Holder, at the expense of the Corporation, a new certificate or certificates for the number of shares of Preferred Stock represented by the certificate or certificates surrendered which are not to be converted.

 

(f) Merger or Consolidation. In case of either (a) any merger or consolidation to which the Corporation is a party (collectively, the “Merger”), other than a Merger in which the Corporation is the surviving or continuing corporation, or (b) any sale or conveyance to another corporation of all, or substantially all, of the assets of the Corporation (collectively, the “Sale”), and such Merger or Sale becomes effective (x) while any shares of Preferred Stock are outstanding and prior to the date that the Corporation’s Registration Statement covering all the shares of Common Stock issuable upon the conversion of the Preferred Stock is declared effective by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”), the Corporation or such successor corporation as the case may be, shall make appropriate provision so that the Holder of each share of Preferred Stock then outstanding shall have the right to convert such share of Preferred Stock into the kind and amount of shares of stock or other securities and property receivable upon such Merger or Sale by a holder of the number of shares of Common Stock into which such shares of Preferred Stock could have been converted into immediately prior to such Merger or Sale, subject to adjustments which shall be as nearly equivalent as may be practicable to the adjustments provided for in this Section 5.

 

In the event of a Merger or Sale, where the Corporation is not the surviving Corporation, the Holder shall have the right to redeem all of the outstanding shares of Preferred Stock at 120% of the Liquidation Value of each share of Preferred Stock then outstanding plus all accrued and unpaid dividends (the “Redemption Amount”). The Corporation shall pay this Redemption Amount in cash within ten (10) business days of receipt by the Corporation of notice from the Holder, and receipt by the Corporation of all outstanding shares of Preferred Stock duly endorsed by the Holder to the Corporation.

 

 -5- 

 

 

(g) Adjustments to Conversion Price for Stock Dividends and for Combinations or Subdivisions of Common Stock. If the Corporation at any time or from time to time while shares of Preferred Stock are issued and outstanding shall declare or pay, any dividend on the Common Stock payable in Common Stock, or shall effect a subdivision of the outstanding shares of Common Stock into a greater number of shares of Common Stock (by stock split, reclassification or otherwise than by payment of a dividend in Common Stock), or if the outstanding shares of Common Stock shall be combined or consolidated, by reclassification or otherwise, into a lesser number of shares of Common Stock, then the Conversion Price in effect immediately before such event shall, concurrently with the effectiveness of such event, be proportionately decreased or increased, as appropriate.

 

(h) Adjustments for Reclassification and Reorganization. If the Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Preferred Stock shall be changed into the same or a different number of shares of Common Stock of any other class or classes of stock, whether by capital reorganization, reclassification or otherwise (other than a subdivision or combination or shares of Common Stock provided for in Section 5(g) hereof), the Conversion Price then in effect shall, concurrently with the effectiveness of such reorganization or reclassification, be proportionately adjusted so that the Preferred Stock shall be convertible into, in lieu of the number of shares of Common Stock which the holders of Preferred Stock would otherwise have been entitled to receive, a number of shares of Common Stock of such other class or classes of stock equivalent to the number of shares of Common Stock that would have been subject to receipt by the holders upon conversion of the Preferred Stock immediately before that change.

 

6 Redemptions.

 

(a) Redemption at Corporation’s Option. Except as otherwise provided in this Section 6, at any time, and from time to time, the Corporation may, at its sole option, but shall not be obligated to, redeem, in whole or in part, at any time, and from time to time (i) for a period of 120 days from the date of issuance of the Preferred Stock up to an aggregate of 450 shares of Series 13 Class M Preferred Stock at the cash redemption price of $1,000 per share and (ii) the then outstanding Series 13 Class M Preferred Stock at the following cash redemption prices if redeemed during the following periods: (a) within one year from July 15, 1999 - $1,100 per share, except as otherwise provided in (i) above, and (b) after one year from July 15, 1999 - $1,200 per share (as applicable, the redemption price of $1,000, $1,100 or $1,200 is referred to herein as the “Redemption Price”).

The Redemption Notice shall state: (i) the Redemption Date of such shares, (ii) the number of Series 13 Class M Preferred Stock to be redeemed from the holder to whom the Redemption Notice is addressed, (iii) instructions for surrender to the Corporation, in the manner and at the place designated, of a share certificate or share certificates representing the number of Series 13 Class M Preferred Stock to be redeemed from such holder, and (iv) instructions, as to how to specify to the Corporation the number of Series 13 Class M Preferred Stock to be redeemed as provided in this Part 6 and, if the Redemption Notice is mailed to the Holder after the first year from the date of issuance of the Series 13 Class M Preferred Stock, the number of shares to be converted into Common Stock as provided in Part 5 hereof.

(c) Rights of Conversion Upon Redemption. If the redemption occurs during the first 12 months after the issuance of the Preferred Stock, the holder may not convert any redeemed shares. If the redemption occurs after the first year after the first issuance of Series 13 Class M Preferred Stock, then, upon receipt of the Redemption Notice, any holder of Series 13 Class M Preferred Stock shall have five business days during which it may exercise the option, at its sole election, to specify what portion of its Series 13 Class M Preferred Stock called for redemption in the Redemption Notice shall be redeemed as provided in this Part 6 or converted into Common Stock in the manner provided in Part 5 hereof, except that, notwithstanding any provision of such Part 5 to the contrary, after one year from the date of first issuance of the Preferred Stock, such holder shall have the right to convert into Common Stock that number of Series 13 Class M Preferred Stock called for redemption in the Redemption Notice.

 

(d) Surrender of Certificates. On or before the Redemption Date in respect of any Series 13 Class M Preferred Stock, each holder of such shares Shall surrender the required certificate or certificates representing such shares to the Corporation in the manner and at the place designated in the Redemption Notice, and upon the Redemption Date, the Redemption Price for such shares shall be made payable, in the manner provided hereof, to the order of the person whose name appears on such certificate or certificates as the owner thereof, and each surrendered share certificate shall be canceled and retired. If a share certificate is surrendered and all the shares evidenced thereby are not being redeemed (as described below), the Corporation shall cause the Series 13 Class M Preferred Stock which are not being redeemed to be registered in the names of the persons or entity whose names appear as the owners on the respective surrendered share certificates and deliver such certificate to such person.

 

(e) Payment. On the Redemption Date in respect of any Series 13 Class M Preferred Stock or prior thereto, the Corporation shall deposit with any bank or trust company having a capital and surplus of at least $50,000,000, as a trust fund, a sum equal to the aggregate Redemption Price of all such shares called from redemption (less the aggregate Redemption Price for those Series 13 Class M Preferred Stock in respect of which the Corporation has received notice from the holder thereof of its election to convert Series 13 Class M Preferred Stock into Common Stock), with irrevocable instructions and authority to the bank or trust company to pay, on or after the Redemption Date, the Redemption Price to the respective holders upon the surrender of their share certificates. The deposit shall constitute full payment for the shares to their holders, and from and after the date of the deposit the redeemed shares shall be deemed to be no longer outstanding, and holders thereof shall cease to be shareholders with respect to such shares and shall have no rights with respect thereto except the rights to receive from the bank or trust company payments of the Redemption Price of the shares, without interest, upon surrender of their certificates thereof. My funds so deposited and unclaimed at the end of one year following the Redemption Date shall be released or repaid to the Corporation, after which the former holders of shares called for redemption shall be entitled to receive payment of the Redemption Price in respect of their shares only from the Corporation.

The Corporation will at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized shares of Common Stock, solely for the purpose of issuance upon the conversion of Preferred Stock, and exercise of the Warrants, as herein provided, such number of shares of Common Stock as shall then be issuable upon the conversion of all outstanding shares of Preferred Stock, and exercise of the Warrants. The Corporation covenants that all shares of Common Stock which shall be so issued shall be duly and validly issued, fully paid and non assessable. The Corporation will take such action as may be required, if the total number of shares of Common Stock issued and issuable after such action upon conversion of the Preferred Stock, and exercise of the Warrants would exceed the total number of shares of Common Stock then authorized by the Corporation’s Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, or would exceed 19.99% of the shares of Common Stock then outstanding if required by law or the Rules and Regulations of NASDAQ or the National Securities Exchange applicable to the Corporation to take such action as a result of exceeding such 19.99%, in order to increase the number of shares of Common Stock to permit the Corporation to issue the number of shares of Common Stock required to effect conversion of the Preferred, and exercise of the Warrants, to a number sufficient to permit conversion of the Preferred Stock, and exercise of the Warrants, including, without limitation, engaging in reasonable efforts to obtain the requisite stockholder approval of any necessary amendment to the Corporation’s Restated Certificate of Incorporation, and to obtain shareholders approval in order to effect conversion of the Preferred Stock, and exercise of the Warrants, if required by law or the rules or regulations of the NASDAQ or National Securities Exchange applicable to the Corporation,

 

8(a) Shareholder Approval. In connection with the issuance to the Holder of the shares of Preferred Stock, pursuant to this Certificate of Designations, the Corporation is also issuing (i) certain warrants (“RBB Warrants”) to the Holder pursuant to the terms of that certain Private Securities Subscription Agreement dated June 30, 1998 (the “Agreement”), providing for the purchase of up to 150,000 shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of $2.50 per share and (ii) certain warrants (collectively, the “Liviakis Warrants”) to Liviakis Financial Communication, Inc.

Prag providing for the purchase of up to an aggregate of 2,500,000 shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of $1.875 per share pursuant to the terms of that Liviakis Agreement dated June 30, 1998, between Liviakis and the Corporation.

If (i) the aggregate number of shares of Common Stock issued by the Corporation as a result of any or all of the following: (a) conversion of the Preferred Stock, (b) payment of dividends accrued on the Preferred Stock (c) exercise of the RBB Warrants, and (d) exercise of the Liviakis Warrants exceeds 2,388,347 shares of Common Stock (which equals 19.9% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock of the Corporation as of the date of this Certificate of Designations) and (ii) the Holder has converted or elects to convert any of the then outstanding shares of Preferred Stock pursuant to the terms of Section 5 at a Conversion Price less than $ 1.875 ($1.875 being the market value per share of Common Stock as quoted on the NASDAQ as of the close of business on June 30, 1998) pursuant to the terms of Section 5(b) hereof, other than if the Conversion Price is less than $ 1.875 solely as a result of the anti-dilution provisions of Section 5(g) and (h) hereof, then, notwithstanding anything in Section 5 to the contrary, the Corporation shall not issue any shares of Common Stock as a result of receipt of a Conversion Notice unless and until the Corporation shall have obtained approval of its shareholders entitled to vote on the transactions in accordance with subparagraphs (25)(H)(i)d, (iv) and (v) of Rule 4310 of the NASDAQ Marketplace Rules (“Shareholder Approval”).

 

If Shareholder Approval is required as set forth in the above paragraph, the Corporation shall take all necessary steps to obtain such Shareholder Approval upon receipt of the Conversion Notice triggering the need for Shareholder Approval (“Current Conversion Notice”). If the Corporation has not received from the Holder a Current Conversion Notice, the Holder, subsequent to January 1st, 1999 may, if the Corporation’s shares of Common Stock trade, subsequent to January 1st, 1999, at a five (5) day average closing bid price below Two Dollars and 34/00 ($2.34), upon written notice to the Corporation, require the Corporation to obtain Shareholder Approval (“Holder’s Notice”). The Holder and the Corporation’s officers’ and directors covenant to vote all shares of Common Stock over which they have voting control in favor of Shareholder Approval. If the Corporation does not obtain Shareholder Approval within ninety (90) days of the earlier of the Corporation’s receipt of (i) the Current Conversion Notice or (ii) the Holder’s Notice, and the Holder has not breached its covenant to vote all shares of Common Stock over which they have voting control in favor of Shareholder Approval, the Corporation shall pay in cash to the Holder liquidated damages, in an amount of 4% per month of the Liquidation Value of each share of Preferred Stock then outstanding, commencing on the 91st day of the Corporation’s receipt of the Holder’s Current Conversion Notice, and continuing every thirty (30) days pro-rata until such time the Corporation receives Shareholder Approval.

 

9. No Reissuance of Series 13 Class M Convertible Preferred Stock.

 

Shares of Preferred Stock which are converted into shares of Common Stock as provided herein shall be retired and shall become authorized but unissued shares of Preferred Stock, which may be reissued as part of a new series of Preferred stock hereafter created.

 

 -9- 

 

 

10. Closing of Books.

 

The Corporation will at no time close its transfer books against the transfer of any Preferred Stock or of any shares of Common Stock issued or issuable upon the conversion of any shares of Common Stock of Preferred Stock in any manner which interferes with the timely conversion of such Preferred Stock, except as may otherwise be required to comply with applicable securities laws.

 

11. No Preemptive Rights.

 

The Preferred Stock shall not give its holders any preemptive rights to acquire any other securities issued by the Corporation at any time in the future.

 

12. Definition of Shares.

 

As used in this Certificate of Designations, the term “shares of Common Stock” shall mean and include the Corporation’s authorized common stock, par value $.001, as constituted on the date of filing of these terms of the Preferred Stock, or in case of any reorganization, reclassification, or stock split of the outstanding shares of Common Stock thereof, the stock, securities or assets provided for hereof. The term “Warrants” as used herein shall have the same meaning as defined in Section 1 of the Private Securities Subscription Agreement, dated June 30, 1998, between the Company and RBB Bank Aktiengesellschaft.

 

The said determination of the designations, preferences and relative, participating, optional or other rights, and the qualifications, limitations or restrictions thereof, relating to the Preferred Stock was duly made by the Board of Directors pursuant to the provisions of the Corporation’s Restated Certificate of Incorporation and in accordance with the provisions of the Delaware General Corporation Law.
