No Rights or Liabilities as a Stockholder. The Registered Holder shall not be entitled to vote or be deemed the holder of Common Stock or any other securities of the Company which may at any time be issuable on the exercise hereof, nor shall anything contained herein be construed to confer upon the holder of this Warrant, as such, the rights of a stockholder of the Company or the right to vote for the election of directors or upon any matter submitted to stockholders at any meeting thereof, or give or withhold consent to any corporate action or to receive notice of meetings or other actions affecting stockholders (except as provided herein), or to receive dividends or subscription rights or otherwise, until the Date of Exercise shall have occurred. No provision of this Warrant, in the absence of affirmative action by the Registered Holder hereof to purchase shares of Common Stock, and no mere enumeration herein of the rights and privileges of the Registered Holder, shall give rise to any liability of such holder for the Exercise Price or as a stockholder of the Company, whether such liability is asserted by the Company or by creditors of the Company.
Section 9. Transfer Restrictions; Registration of the Warrant and Warrant Shares.
(a) Neither the Warrant nor the Warrant Shares have been registered under the 1933 Act. The Registered Holder, by acceptance hereof, represents that it is acquiring this Warrant to be issued to it for its own account and not with a view to the distribution thereof, and agrees not to sell, transfer, pledge or hypothecate this Warrant, any purchase rights evidenced hereby or any Warrant Shares unless a registration statement is effective for this Warrant or the Warrant Shares under the 1933 Act, or in the opinion of such Registered Holder’s counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Company, a copy of which opinion shall be delivered to the Company, such registration is not required as some other exemption from the registration requirement of the 1933 Act and applicable laws is available.
(b) Subject to the provisions of the following paragraph of this Section 9, each Certificate for Warrant Shares shall be stamped or otherwise imprinted with a legend in substantially the following form:
THE SHARES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “1933 ACT”), OR APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS AND MAY NOT BE OFFERED FOR SALE, SOLD, TRANSFERRED OR OTHERWISE DISPOSED OF IN THE ABSENCE OF AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT FOR SUCH SECURITIES UNDER THE 1933 ACT, AN OPINION OF COUNSEL, SATISFACTORY TO THE ISSUER HEREOF, TO THE EFFECT THAT REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED UNDER THE 1933 ACT AS SOME OTHER EXEMPTION FROM THE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS OF THE 1933 ACT AND APPLICABLE LAWS IS AVAILABLE.
(c) The restrictions and requirements set forth in the foregoing paragraph shall apply with respect to Warrant Shares unless and until such Warrant Shares are sold or otherwise transferred pursuant to an effective registration statement under the 1933 Act or are otherwise no longer subject to the restrictions of the 1933 Act, at which time the Company agrees to promptly cause such restrictive legends to be removed and stop transfer restrictions applicable to such Warrant Shares to be rescinded.
