2.13 Compliance. Neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries is in violation of its Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws (or similar organizational documents). Neither the Company nor the subsidiaries have been advised or have reason to believe, that it is not conducting its business in compliance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations of the jurisdictions in which it is conducting business, including, without limitation, all applicable local, state and federal environmental laws and regulations, except where failure to be so in compliance would not have a Material Adverse Effect. Each of the Company and the subsidiaries has all necessary franchises, licenses, certificates and other authorizations from any foreign, federal, state or local government or governmental agency, department or body that are currently necessary for the operation of the business of the Company and its subsidiaries as currently conducted, except where the failure to currently possess such franchises, licenses, certificates and other authorizations would not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

2.15 Contracts. Except for matters which are not reasonably likely to have a Material Adverse Effect and those contracts that are substantially or fully performed or expired by their terms, the contracts listed as exhibits to or described in the Company SEC Documents are in full force and effect on the date hereof, and neither the Company nor any applicable subsidiary of the Company nor, to the Company’s knowledge, any other party to such contracts is in breach of or default under any of such contracts.

None of the Company’s or its Subsidiaries’ Intellectual Property Rights have expired, terminated or been abandoned, or are expected to expire, terminate or be abandoned, within three years from the date of this Agreement. The Company has no knowledge of any infringement by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries of Intellectual Property Rights of others. There is no claim, action or proceeding being made or brought, or to the knowledge of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, being threatened, against the Company or any of its Subsidiaries regarding their Intellectual Property Rights. The Company is not aware of any facts or circumstances which are likely to give rise to any of the foregoing infringements or claims, actions or proceedings.

Neither the Company nor any Subsidiary is making unauthorized use of any confidential information or trade secrets of any person. The activities of any of the employees on behalf of the Company or of any Subsidiary do not violate any agreements or arrangements between such employees and third parties are related to confidential information or trade secrets of third parties or that restrict any such employee’s engagement in business activity of any nature. All licenses or other agreements under which (i) the Company or any Subsidiary employs Intellectual Property Rights, or (ii) the Company or any subsidiary has granted rights to others in Intellectual Property Rights owned or licensed by the Company or any Subsidiary are in full force and effect, and there is no default (and there exists no condition which, with the passage of time or otherwise, would constitute a default by the Company or such Subsidiary) by the Company or any subsidiary with respect thereto which would result in a Material Adverse Effect.

To the Company’s knowledge, after conducting such sufficiently diligent factual inquiries, no Covered Person is subject to a Disqualification Event, except for a Disqualification Event covered by Rule 506(d)(2) or (d)(3) under the Securities Act. The Company has complied, to the extent applicable, with any disclosure obligations under Rule 506(e) under the Securities Act. “Covered Persons” are those persons specified in Rule 506(d)(1) under the Securities Act, including the Company; any predecessor or affiliate of the Company; any director, executive officer, other officer participating in the offering, general partner or managing member of the Company; any beneficial owner of 20% or more of the Company’s outstanding voting equity securities, calculated on the basis of voting power; any promoter (as defined in Rule 405 under the Securities Act) connected with the Company in any capacity at the time of the sale of the Securities; and any person that has been or will be paid (directly or indirectly) remuneration for solicitation of purchasers in connection with the sale of the Securities (a “Solicitor”), any general partner or managing member of any Solicitor, and any director, executive officer or other officer participating in the offering of any Solicitor or general partner or managing member of any Solicitor.

 

3. Representations and Warranties of the Purchasers. Each Purchaser, severally and not jointly, hereby represents and warrants to the Company as follows:

 

3.1 Legal Power. The Purchaser has the requisite authority to enter into this Agreement and to carry out and perform its obligations under the terms of this Agreement. All action on the Purchaser’s part required for the lawful execution and delivery of this Agreement have been or will be effectively taken prior to the Closing.

 

3.2 Due Execution. This Agreement has been duly authorized, executed and delivered by the Purchaser, and, upon due execution and delivery by the Company, this Agreement will be a valid and binding agreement of the Purchaser, except as rights to indemnity hereunder may be limited by federal or state securities laws and except as enforceability may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or similar laws affecting creditors’ rights generally or by equitable principles.

 

3.3 Investment Representations. In connection with the sale and issuance of the Securities, the Purchaser, for itself and no other Purchaser, makes the following representations:

 

(a) Investment for Own Account. The Purchaser is acquiring the Securities for its own account, not as nominee or agent, and not with a view to, or for resale in connection with, any distribution or public offering thereof within the meaning of the Securities Act; provided, however, that by making the representations herein, the Purchaser does not agree to hold any of the Securities for any minimum or specific term and reserves the right to dispose of the securities at any time in accordance with or pursuant to a registration statement or an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act.

 

 Page 9 

 

 

(b) Transfer Restrictions; Legends. The Purchaser understands that (i) the Securities have not been registered under the Securities Act; (ii) the Securities are being offered and sold pursuant to an exemption from registration, based in part upon the Company’s reliance upon the statements and representations made by the Purchasers in this Agreement, and that the Securities must be held by the Purchaser indefinitely, and that the Purchaser must, therefore, bear the economic risk of such investment indefinitely, unless a subsequent disposition thereof is registered under the Securities Act or is exempt from such registration; (iii) each Certificate representing the Securities will be endorsed with the following legend until the earlier of (1) such date as the Shares have been registered for resale by the Purchaser or (2) the date the Shares are eligible for sale under Rule 144 under the Securities Act:

 

THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED HEREBY HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “SECURITIES ACT”), OR UNDER THE SECURITIES LAWS OF ANY STATES. THESE SECURITIES ARE SUBJECT TO RESTRICTIONS ON TRANSFERABILITY AND RESALE AND MAY NOT BE TRANSFERRED OR RESOLD EXCEPT AS PERMITTED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT AND THE APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS, PURSUANT TO REGISTRATION OR EXEMPTION THEREFROM. UNLESS SOLD PURSUANT TO EITHER AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT OR RULE 144 UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT, THE ISSUER OF THESE SECURITIES MAY REQUIRE AN OPINION OF COUNSEL IN FORM AND SUBSTANCE SATISFACTORY TO THE ISSUER TO THE EFFECT THAT ANY PROPOSED TRANSFER OR RESALE IS IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE SECURITIES ACT.

 

(iv) the Company will instruct any transfer agent not to register the transfer of the Securities (or any portion thereof) until the applicable date set forth in clause (iii) above unless (A) the conditions specified in the foregoing legends are satisfied, (B) if the opinion of counsel referred to above is to the further effect that such legend is not required in order to establish compliance with any provisions of the Securities Act or this Agreement, (C) if the Holder provides the Company with reasonable assurance, such as through a representation letter, that the Securities may be sold pursuant to Rule 144 under the Securities Act, or (D) other reasonably satisfactory assurances of such nature are given to the Company. If so required by the Company’s transfer agent, the Company shall cause its counsel, at the expense of the Company, to issue and deliver a legal opinion to the transfer agent to effect the removal of the restrictive legend contemplated by this Agreement.

 

The Company acknowledges and agrees that a Purchaser may from time to time pledge, and/or grant a security interest in some or all of the Securities pursuant to a bona fide margin agreement in connection with a bona fide margin account and, if required under the terms of such agreement or account, the Purchaser may transfer pledged or secured Securities to the pledgees or secured parties. Such a pledge or transfer shall not be subject to approval or consent of the Company and no legal opinion of legal counsel to the pledgee, secured party or pledgor shall be required in connection with the pledge, but such legal opinion may be required in connection with a subsequent transfer following default by the Purchaser transferee of the pledge. No notice shall be required of such pledge. At the appropriate Purchaser’s expense, the Company will execute and deliver such reasonable documentation as a pledgee or secured party of Securities may reasonably request in connection with a pledge or transfer of the Securities.

 

 Page 10 

 

 

Certificates evidencing the Shares shall not contain any legend (including the legend set forth in this Section): (i) upon the effectiveness of a registration statement covering the Shares, or (ii) following a sale of such Shares pursuant to Rule 144, or (iii) while such Shares are eligible for sale under Rule 144, if such Shares have been held for one year pursuant to the requirements of Rule 144, or (iv) if such legend is not required under applicable requirements of the Securities Act (including judicial interpretations and pronouncements issued by the Staff of the SEC). Following such time as restrictive legends are not required to be placed on certificates representing Shares, the Company will, no later than three business days following the delivery by a Purchaser to the Company or the Company’s transfer agent of a certificate representing Shares containing a restrictive legend and such other documentation and representations as the Company, its legal counsel or Transfer Agent may reasonably request to confirm compliance with the preceding sentence as applicable (provided, however, that neither the Company nor its legal counsel will require a legal opinion in connection with any sale pursuant to Rule 144), deliver or cause to be delivered to such Purchaser a certificate representing such Shares that is free from all restrictive and other legends. The Company shall cause its counsel to issue a legal opinion to the Company’s transfer agent promptly after the effective date of a registration statement covering the Shares if required by the Company’s transfer agent to effect the removal of the legend hereunder. The Company may not make any notation on its records or give instructions to any transfer agent of the Company that enlarge the restrictions on transfer set forth in this Section. Certificates for Shares subject to legend removal hereunder shall be transmitted by the transfer agent of the Company to the Purchasers by crediting the account of the Purchaser’s prime broker with the Depository Trust Company system. The Company will pay all fees and expenses of its transfer agent and the Depository Trust Company in connection with the removal of legends pursuant to this Section 3.3(b).

 

Each Purchaser, severally and not jointly with the other Purchasers, agrees that the removal of the restrictive legend from certificates representing Shares as set forth in this Section 3.3(b) is predicated upon the Company’s reliance that the Purchaser will sell any Shares pursuant to either the registration requirements of the Securities Act, including any applicable prospectus delivery requirements, or an exemption therefrom.

 

(c) Financial Sophistication; Due Diligence. The Purchaser has such knowledge and experience in financial or business matters that it is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of the investment in connection with the transactions contemplated in this Agreement. Such Purchaser has, in connection with its decision to purchase the Securities, relied only upon the representations and warranties contained herein and the information contained in the Company SEC Documents. Further, the Purchaser has had such opportunity to obtain additional information and to ask questions of, and receive answers from, the Company, concerning the terms and conditions of the investment and the business and affairs of the Company, as the Purchaser considers necessary in order to form an investment decision.

 

(d) Accredited Investor Status. The Purchaser is an “accredited investor” as such term is defined in Rule 501(a) of the rules and regulations promulgated under the Securities Act.

 

(e) Residency. The Purchaser is organized under the laws of the jurisdiction set forth beneath such Purchaser’s name on the signature page attached hereto, and its principal place of operations is in the state set forth beneath such Purchaser’s name on the signature page attached hereto.

 

(f) General Solicitation. The Purchaser is not purchasing the Securities as a result of any advertisement, article, notice or other communication regarding the Securities published in any newspaper, magazine or similar media or broadcast over the television or radio or presented at any seminar or any other general solicitation or general advertisement. Prior to the time that the Purchaser was first contacted by the Company or the Placement Agent such Purchaser had a pre-existing and substantial relationship with the Company or the Placement Agent.

 

3.4 No Investment, Tax or Legal Advice. Each Purchaser understands that nothing in the Company SEC Documents, this Agreement, or any other materials presented to the Purchaser in connection with the purchase and sale of the Securities constitutes legal, tax or investment advice. Each Purchaser has consulted such legal, tax and investment advisors as it, in its sole discretion, has deemed necessary or appropriate in connection with its purchase of Securities.

 

3.5 Additional Acknowledgement. Each Purchaser acknowledges that it has independently evaluated the merits of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, that it has independently determined to enter into the transactions contemplated hereby, that it is not relying on any advice from or evaluation by any other person. Each Purchaser acknowledges that the Placement Agent has acted solely as placement agent for the Company in connection with the Offering of the Securities by the Company, that the information and data provided to the Purchaser in connection with the transaction contemplated hereby has not been subjected to independent verification by the Placement Agent, and that the Placement Agent has made no representation or warranty whatsoever with respect to the accuracy or completeness of such information, data or other related disclosure material. Each Purchaser acknowledges that it has not taken any actions that would deem the Purchasers to be members of a “group” for purposes of Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act.

 

 Page 11 

 

 

3.6 No Short Position. As of the date hereof, and as of the date of the public announcement of the Offering, each Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that it does not and will not (between the date hereof and the date of the public announcement of the Offering) engage in any short sale of the Company’s voting stock or any other type of hedging transaction involving the Company’s securities (including, without limitation, depositing shares of the Company’s securities with a brokerage firm where such securities are made available by the broker to other customers of the firm for purposes of hedging or short selling the Company’s securities).

 

4. Conditions to Closing.

 

4.1 Conditions to Obligations of Purchasers at Closing. Each Purchaser’s obligation to purchase the Securities at a Closing is subject to the fulfillment to that Purchaser’s reasonable satisfaction, on or prior to the Closing, of all of the following conditions, any of which may be waived by the Purchaser:

 

(a) Representations and Warranties True; Performance of Obligations. The representations and warranties made by the Company in Section 2 shall be true and correct in all respects on the Closing Date with the same force and effect as if they had been made on and as of said date and the Company shall have performed and complied with all obligations and conditions herein required to be performed or complied with by it on or prior to Closing and a certificate duly executed by an officer of the Company, to the effect of the foregoing, shall be delivered to the Purchasers.

At the time of Closing, the sale and issuance of the Securities shall be legally permitted by all laws and regulations to which Purchasers and the Company are subject. No litigation, statute, rule, regulation, executive order, decree, ruling or injunction will have been enacted, entered, promulgated or endorsed by or in any court or governmental authority of competent jurisdiction or any self-regulatory organization having authority over the matters contemplated hereby which prohibits the consummation of any of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

 Page 13 

 

 

(iv) by either the Company or any Purchaser (with respect to itself only) if the Closing has not occurred on or prior to December 31, 2018;

 

provided, however, that, except in the case of clause (i) above, the party seeking to terminate its obligation to effect a Closing shall not then be in breach of any of its representations, warranties, covenants, or agreements contained in this Agreement if such breach has resulted in the circumstances giving rise to such party’s seeking to terminate its obligation to effect a Closing.

 

(b) Effect of Termination. In the event of termination by the Company or any Purchaser of its obligations to effect a Closing pursuant to this Section 4.3, written notice thereof shall be given promptly to the other Purchasers by the Company and the other Purchasers shall have the right to terminate their obligations to effect a Closing upon written notice to the Company and the other Purchasers. Nothing in this Section 4.3 shall be deemed to release any party from any liability for any breach by such party of the terms and provisions of this Agreement or to impair the right of any party to compel specific performance by any other party of its obligations under this Agreement.

 

5. Additional Covenants.

 

5.1 Reporting Status. With a view to making available to the Purchasers the benefits of certain rules and regulations of the SEC which may permit the sale of the Shares to the public without registration, the Company agrees to use its reasonable efforts to file with the SEC, in a timely manner all reports and other documents required of the Company under the Exchange Act. The Company will otherwise take such further action as a Purchaser may reasonably request, all to the extent required from time to time to enable such Purchaser to sell the Shares without registration under the Securities Act or any successor rule or regulation adopted by the SEC.

 

5.2 Listing. So long as a Purchaser owns any of the Securities, the Company will use its reasonable efforts to maintain the qualification or listing of its Common Stock, including the Shares, on the Principal Market or an alternative tier of the OTC Markets, NASDAQ Stock Market, New York Stock Exchange or NYSE MKT and will comply in all material respects with the Company’s reporting, filing and other obligations under the rules of such exchanges, as applicable.

 

5.3 Non-Public Information. Other than as contemplated hereby, the Company covenants and agrees that neither it nor any other person acting on its behalf will provide any Purchaser or its agents or counsel with any information that the Company believes constitutes material non-public information, unless prior thereto such Purchaser shall have executed a written agreement regarding the confidentiality and use of such information. The Company understands and confirms that each Purchaser shall be relying on the foregoing representations in effecting transactions in securities of the Company. Furthermore, as of the Closing Date, if the Company has disclosed any material, non-public information to the Purchaser, the Purchaser has no duty to keep such information confidential following the public announcement of the Offering.

 

5.4 Equal Treatment of Purchasers. No consideration (including any modification of this Agreement and any other documents or agreements executed in connection with the transaction contemplated hereunder) shall be offered or paid to any person to amend or consent to a waiver or modification of any provision of any of this Agreement unless the same consideration is also offered to all of the parties to this Agreement. For clarification purposes, this provision constitutes a separate right granted to each Purchaser by the Company and negotiated separately by each Purchaser, and is intended for the Company to treat the Purchasers as a class and shall not in any way be construed as the Purchasers acting in concert or as a group with respect to the purchase, disposition or voting of securities of the Company or otherwise.

6. Miscellaneous.

 

6.1 Public Statements; Limitation on Information.

From and after the issuance of such press release, the Company represents to the Purchasers that it shall have publicly disclosed all material, non-public information delivered to any of the Purchasers by the Company or any of its subsidiaries, or any of their respective officers, directors, employees or agents in connection with the Offering. Neither the Company nor any Purchaser shall issue any other press release with respect to the transactions contemplated hereby nor otherwise make any such public statement without the prior consent of the Company and the Placement Agent, which consents in each case shall not unreasonably be withheld or delayed, except if such disclosure is required by law, in which case the disclosing party shall promptly provide the other party with prior notice of such public statement or communication. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company will not make any public disclosure listing a Purchaser as one of the purchasers of the Securities without that Purchaser’s prior written consent, except as may be required by applicable law or rules of any exchange on which the Company’s securities are listed.

6.5 Severability. In the event any provision of this Agreement shall be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, it shall to the extent practicable, be modified so as to make it valid, legal and enforceable and to retain as nearly as practicable the intent of the parties, and the validity, legality, and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby.

 

6.6 Amendment and Waiver. Except as otherwise provided herein, any term of this Agreement may be amended and the observance of any term of this Agreement may be waived (either generally or in a particular instance, either retroactively or prospectively, and either for a specified period of time or indefinitely), with the written consent of the Company and Purchasers holding an aggregate of at least 50% of the Shares issued hereunder and outstanding at the time of such consent. Any amendment or waiver effected in accordance with this Section 6.8 shall be binding upon any holder of any Securities purchased under this Agreement, each future holder of all such securities, and the Company.

 

6.7 Fees and Expenses. Except as otherwise set forth herein, the Company and the Purchasers shall bear their own expenses and legal fees incurred on their behalf with respect to this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby.

Nothing contained herein, and no action taken by any Purchaser pursuant hereto, shall be deemed to constitute the Purchasers as a partnership, an association, a joint venture or any other kind of entity, or create a presumption that the Purchasers are in any way acting in concert or as a group with respect to such obligations or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. Each Purchaser confirms that it has independently participated in the negotiation of the transaction contemplated hereby with the advice of its own counsel and advisors. Each Purchaser shall be entitled to independently protect and enforce its rights, including, without limitation, the rights arising out of this Agreement, and it shall not be necessary for any other Purchaser to be joined as an additional party in any proceeding for such purpose.

Banco Popular North America. v Aerial Products Corporation d/b/a Southern Balloon Works, et al. (Fourth Judicial Circuit Court, Duval County Florida-Civil Division) Case No. 16:2016:CA-003343

 

On May 16, 2016, Banco Popular North America (“Banco”) filed a lawsuit in Duval County, Florida in the Circuit Court of the Fourth Judicial Circuit against Aerial Products Corporation d/b/a Southern Balloon Works (“Aerial Products”), Kevin M. Hess, LTAS, and the Company to collect on a delinquent Small Business Administration loan that Banco made in 2007 to Aerial Products with Mr. Hess as the personal guarantor. LTAS and the Company filed an Answer on June 30, 2016 and Responses to Interrogatories on December 16, 2016 and we are now in the discovery phase of litigation. The lawsuit is active and discovery is ongoing. It is our position that neither LTAS nor the Company are continuations of Aerial Products, and LTAS and the Company has denied all allegations made by Banco and is vigorously defending itself. The Company has evaluated the probability of loss as possible but the range of loss is unable to be estimated.

 

Other than the Banco matter, there are no material claims, actions, suits, proceedings inquiries, labor disputes or investigations pending.
