WARRANT TO PURCHASE STOCK
Corporation: Inland Casino Corporation, a Utah corporation
Number of Shares: 40,000
Class of Stock: Common
Initial Exercise Price: $5.00 per share
Issue Date: October 10, 1995
Expiration Date: October 10, 2000 (subject to Article 4.1)
THIS WARRANT CERTIFIES THAT, in consideration of an extension of credit
to Corporation and for other good and valuable consideration, IMPERIAL BANK
("Holder") is entitled to purchase the number of fully paid and nonassessable
shares of the class of securities (the "Shares") of the corporation (the
"Company") at the initial exercise price per Share (the "Warrant Price") all as
set forth above and as adjusted pursuant to Article 2 of this Warrant, subject
to the provisions and upon the terms and conditions set forth in this Warrant.
ARTICLE 1. EXERCISE
1.1 Method of Exercise. Holder may exercise this Warrant by delivering
this Warrant and a duly executed Notice of Exercise in substantially the form
attached as Appendix 1 to the principal office of the Company. Unless Holder is
exercising the conversion right set forth in Section 1.2, Holder shall also
deliver to the Company a check for the aggregate Warrant Price for the Shares
1.2 Conversion Right. In lieu of exercising this Warrant as specified
in Section 1.1, Holder may from time to time convert this Warrant, in whole or
in part, into a number of Shares determined by dividing (a) the aggregate fair
market value of the Shares or other securities otherwise issuable upon
exercise of this Warrant minus the aggregate Warrant Price of such Shares by
(b) the fair market value of one Share. The fair market value of the Shares
shall be determined pursuant to Section 1.3.
1.3 Fair Market Value. If the Shares are traded regularly in a public
market, the fair market value of the Shares shall be the closing price of the
Shares (or the closing price of the Company's stock, into which the Shares are
convertible) reported for the business day immediately before Holder delivers
its Notice of Exercise to the Company. If the Shares are not regularly traded
in a public market, the Board of
Directors of the Company shall determine fair market value in its reasonable
good faith judgment. The foregoing notwithstanding, if Holder advises the Board
of Directors in writing that Holder disagrees with such determination, then the
Company and Holder shall promptly agree upon a reputable investment banking
firm to undertake such valuation. If the valuation of such investment banking
firm is greater than that determined by the Board of Directors, then all fees
and expenses of such investment banking firm shall be paid by the Company. In
all other circumstances, such fees and expenses shall be paid by Holder.
1.4 Delivery of Certificate and New Warrant. Promptly after Holder
exercises or converts this Warrant, the Company shall deliver to Holder
certificates for the Shares acquired and, if this Warrant has not been fully
exercised or converted and has not expired, a new Warrant representing the
Shares not so acquired.
1.5 Replacement of Warrants. On receipt of evidence reasonably
satisfactory to the Company of the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of
this Warrant and, in the case of loss, theft or destruction, on delivery of an
indemnity agreement reasonably satisfactory in form and amount to the Company
or, in the case of mutilation, or surrender and cancellation of this Warrant,
the Company at its expense shall execute and deliver, in lieu of this Warrant,
a new warrant of like tenor.
1.6 Repurchase on Sale, Merger or Consolidation of the Company.
1.6.1. "Acquisition". For the purpose of this Warrant,
"Acquisition" means any sale, license, or other disposition of all or
substantially all of the assets (including intellectual property) of the
Company, or any reorganization, consolidation, or merger of the Company where
the holders of the Company's securities before the transaction beneficially own
less than 50% of the outstanding voting securities of the surviving entity
after the transaction.
1.6.2. Assumption of Warrant. If upon the closing of any
Acquisition the successor entity assumes the obligations of this Warrant, then
this Warrant shall be exercisable for the same securities, cash, and property
as would be payable for the Shares issuable upon exercise of the unexercised
portion of this Warrant as if such Shares were outstanding on the record date
for the Acquisition and subsequent closing. The Warrant Price shall be adjusted
accordingly. The Company shall use reasonable efforts to cause the surviving
corporation to assume the obligations of this Warrant.
1.6.3. Nonassumption. If upon the closing of any Acquisition the
successor entity does not assume the obligations of his Warrant and Holder has
not otherwise exercised this Warrant in full, then the unexercised portion of
this Warrant shall be deemed to have been automatically converted pursuant to
Section 1.2 and
thereafter Holder shall participate in the acquisition on the same terms as
other holders of the same class of securities of the Company.
ARTICLE 2. ADJUSTMENTS TO THE SHARES.
2.1 Stock Dividends, Splits, Etc. If the Company declares or pays a
dividend on its common stock (or the Shares if the Shares are securities other
than common stock) payable in common stock, or other securities, subdivides the
outstanding common stock into a greater amount of common stock, or, if the
Shares are securities other than common stock, subdivides the Shares in a
transaction that increases the amount of common stock into which the Shares are
convertible, then upon exercise of this Warrant, for each Share acquired,
Holder shall receive, without cost to Holder, the total number and kind of
securities to which Holder would have been entitled had Holder owned the Shares
of record as of the date the dividend or subdivision occurred.
2.2 Reclassification, Exchange or Substitution. Upon any
reclassification, exchange, substitution, or other event that results in a
change of the number and/or class of the securities issuable upon exercise or
conversion of this Warrant, Holder shall be entitled to receive, upon exercise
or conversion of this Warrant, the number and kind of securities and property
that Holder would have received for the Shares if this Warrant had been
exercised immediately before such reclassification, exchange, substitution, or
other event. Such an event shall include any automatic conversion of the
outstanding or issuable securities of the Company of the same class or series
as the Shares to common stock pursuant to the terms of the Company's Articles
of Incorporation upon the closing of a registered public offering of the
Company's common stock. The Company or its successor shall promptly issue to
Holder a new Warrant for such new securities or other property. The new Warrant
shall provide for adjustments which shall be as nearly equivalent as may be
practicable to the adjustments provided for in this Article 2 including,
without limitation, adjustments to the Warrant Price and to the number of
securities or property issuable upon exercise of the new Warrant. The
provisions of this Section 2.2 shall similarly apply to successive
reclassifications, exchanges, substitutions, or other events.
2.3 Adjustments for Combinations, Etc. If the outstanding Shares are
combined or consolidated, by reclassification or otherwise, into a lesser
number of shares, the Warrant Price shall be proportionately increased.
2.4 Adjustments for Diluting Issuances. The Warrant Price and the
number of Shares issuable upon exercise of this Warrant or, if the Shares are
Preferred Stock, the number of shares of common stock issuable upon conversion
of the Shares, shall be subject to the adjustment, from time to time, in the
manner set forth on Exhibit B, if attached, in the event of Diluting Issuances
(as defined on Exhibit A).
2.5 No impairment. The Company shall not, by amendment of its
Articles of Incorporation or through a reorganization, transfer of assets,
consolidation, merger, dissolution, issue, or sale of securities or any other
voluntary action, avoid or seek to avoid the observance or performance of any
of the terms to be observed or performed under this Warrant by the Company, but
shall at all times in good faith assist in carrying out all the provisions of
this Article 2 and in taking all such action as may be necessary or appropriate
to protect Holder's rights under this Article against impairment. If the
Company takes any action affecting the Shares or its common stock other than as
described above that adversely affects Holder's rights under this Warrant, the
Warrant Price shall be adjusted downward and the number of Shares issuable upon
exercise of this Warrant shall be adjusted upward in such a manner that the
aggregate Warrant Price of this Warrant is unchanged.
2.6 Certificate as to Adjustments. Upon each adjustment of the
Warrant Price, the Company at its expense shall promptly compute such
adjustment, and furnish Holder with a certificate of its Chief Financial
Officer setting forth such adjustment and the facts upon which such adjustment
is based. The Company shall, upon written request, furnish Holder a certificate
setting forth the Warrant Price in effect upon the date thereof and the series
of adjustments leading to such Warrant Price.

convertible into Common Shares at a price per share less than the Warrant
Price, the number of Shares issuable such that the Holder shall receive
additional shares of Common Stock such that the effective Warrant Price shall
be no greater than the price at which the Diluting Issuance was made.
Under no circumstances shall the aggregate Warrant Price payable by the
Holder upon exercise of the Warrant increase as a result of any adjustment
arising from a Diluting Issuance.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Company may issue options to
employees for up to 500,000 shares per year but not to exceed 1,000,000 shares
in total without such options being Diluting Issuances.
The Shares shall be deemed "registrable securities" or otherwise
entitled to "piggy back" registration rights in accordance with the terms of
any agreement between the Company and any of its investors (the "Agreement"),
provided Holder shall not exercise such registration rights more than twice.
The Company agrees that no amendments will be made to the Agreement
which would have an material adverse impact on Holder's registration rights
thereunder without the consent of Holder. By acceptance of the Warrant to which
this Exhibit B is attached, Holder shall be deemed to be a party to the
Agreement for solely for purposes of the registration rights.
If no Agreement exists, then the Company and the Holder shall enter
into a form of Registration Rights Agreement which shall be no less favorable
than any such agreement subsequently entered into between the Company and any
investors and in no event providing less than piggy back registration rights.
