Any Warrantholder desiring to exchange a Warrant shall make such request in writing delivered to the Company, and shall surrender, properly endorsed, with signatures guaranteed, the certificate evidencing the Warrant to be so exchanged. Thereupon, the Company shall execute and deliver to the person entitled thereto a new Warrant as so requested.
Mutilated, Lost, Stolen, or Destroyed Certificate. In case the certificate or certificates evidencing the Warrants shall be mutilated, lost, stolen or destroyed, the Company shall, at the request of the Warrantholder, issue and deliver in exchange and substitution for and upon cancellation of the mutilated certificate or certificates, or in lieu of and substitution for the certificate or certificates lost, stolen or destroyed, a new Warrant or certificates of like tenor and representing an equivalent right or interest, but only upon receipt of evidence satisfactory to the Company of such loss, theft or destruction of such Warrant and a bond of indemnity, if requested, also satisfactory in form and amount, at the applicants cost. Applicants for such substitute Warrant shall also comply with such other reasonable regulations and pay such other reasonable charges as the Company may prescribe.
Adjustment of Number of Shares.
The number and kind of securities purchasable upon the exercise of the Warrants and the Warrant Price shall be subject to adjustment from time to time upon the happening of certain events, as follows:
Adjustments. The number of Shares purchasable upon the exercise of the Warrants shall be subject to adjustments as follows:
(a) In case the Company shall (i) pay a dividend in Common Stock or make a distribution to its stockholders in Common Stock, (ii) subdivide its outstanding Common Stock, (iii) combine its outstanding Common Stock into a smaller number of shares of Common Stock, or (iv) issue by classification of its Common Stock other securities of the Company, the number of Shares purchasable upon exercise of the Warrants immediately prior thereto shall be adjusted so that the Warrantholder shall be entitled to receive the kind and number of Shares or other securities of the Company which it would have owned or would have been entitled to receive immediately after the happening of any of the events described above, had the Warrants been exercised immediately prior to the happening of such event or any record date with respect thereto. Any adjustment made pursuant to this subsection 4.1.(a) shall become effective immediately after the effective date of such event retroactive to the record date, if any, for such event.
(b) In case the Company shall issue rights, options, warrants, or convertible securities to all or substantially all holders of its Common Stock, without any charge to such holders, entitling them to subscribe for or purchase Common Stock at a price per share which is lower at the record date mentioned below than the then Current Market Price, the number of Shares thereafter purchasable upon the exercise of each Warrant shall be determined by multiplying the number of Shares theretofore purchasable upon exercise of the Warrants by a fraction, of which the numerator shall be the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to the issuance of such rights, options, warrants or convertible securities plus the number of additional shares of Common Stock offered for subscription or purchase, and of which the denominator shall be the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to the issuance of such rights, options, warrants, or convertible securities plus the number of shares which the aggregate offering price of the total number of shares offered would purchase at such Current Market Price. Such adjustment shall be made whenever such rights, options, warrants, or convertible securities are
issued, and shall become effective immediately and retroactively to the record date for the determination of stockholders entitled to receive such rights, options, warrants, or convertible securities.
(c) In case the Company shall distribute to all or substantially all holders of its Common Stock evidences of its indebtedness or assets (excluding cash dividends or distributions out of earnings) or rights, options, warrants, or convertible securities containing the right to subscribe for or purchase Common Stock (excluding those referred to in subsection 4.1(b) above), then in each case the number of Shares thereafter purchasable upon the exercise of the Warrants shall be determined by multiplying the number of Shares theretofore purchasable upon exercise of the Warrants by a fraction, of which the numerator shall be the then Current Market Price on the date of such distribution, and of which the denominator shall be such Current Market Price on such date minus the then fair value (determined as provided in subparagraph (e) below) of the portion of the assets or evidences of indebtedness so distributed or of such subscription rights, options, warrants, or convertible securities applicable to one share. Such adjustment shall be made whenever any such distribution is made and shall become effective on the date of distribution retroactive to the record date for the determination of stockholders entitled to receive such distribution.
(d) No adjustment in the number of Shares purchasable pursuant to the Warrants shall be required unless such adjustment would require an increase or decrease of at least one percent in the number of Shares then purchasable upon the exercise of the Warrants or, if the Warrants are not then exercisable, the number of Shares purchasable upon the exercise of the Warrants on the first date thereafter that the Warrants become exercisable; provided, however, that any adjustments which by reason of this subsection (4.1(d)) are not required to be made immediately shall be carried forward and taken into account in any subsequent adjustment.
(e) Whenever the number of Shares purchasable upon the exercise of the Warrant is adjusted, as herein provided, the Exercise Price payable upon exercise of the Warrant shall be adjusted by multiplying such Exercise Price immediately prior to such adjustment by a fraction, of which the numerator shall be the number of Warrant Shares purchasable upon the exercise of the Warrant immediately prior to such adjustment, and of which the denominator shall be the number of Warrant Shares so purchasable immediately thereafter.
(f) Whenever the number of Shares purchasable upon exercise of the Warrants is adjusted as herein provided, the Company shall cause to be promptly mailed to the Warrantholder by first class mail, postage prepaid, notice of such adjustment and a certificate of the chief financial officer of the Company setting forth the number of Shares purchasable upon the exercise of the Warrants after such adjustment, a brief statement of the facts requiring such adjustment and the computation by which such adjustment was made.
(g) For the purpose of this Section 4.1, the term Common Stock shall mean (i) the class of stock designated as the Common Stock of the Company at the date of this Agreement, or (ii) any other class of stock resulting from successive changes or reclassifications of such Common Stock consisting solely of changes in par value, or from par value to no par value, or from no par value to par value. In the event that at any time, as a result of an adjustment made pursuant to this Section 4, the Warrantholder shall become entitled to purchase any securities of the Company other than Common Stock, (y) if the Warrantholders right to purchase is on any other basis than that available to all holders of the Companys Common Stock, the Company shall obtain an opinion of an independent investment banking firm valuing such other securities and (z) thereafter the number of such other securities so purchasable upon exercise of the Warrants shall be subject to adjustment from time to time in a manner and on terms as nearly equivalent as practicable to the provisions with respect to the Shares contained in this Section 4.
(h) Upon the expiration of any rights, options, warrants, or conversion privileges, if such shall have not been exercised, the number of Shares purchasable upon exercise of the Warrants, to the extent the Warrants have not then been exercised, shall, upon such expiration, be readjusted and shall thereafter be such as they would have been had they been originally adjusted (or had the original adjustment not been required, as the case may be) on the basis of (i) the fact that the only shares of Common Stock so issued were the shares of Common Stock, if any, actually issued or sold upon the exercise of such rights, options,
warrants, or conversion privileges, and (ii) the fact that such shares of Common Stock, if any, were issued or sold for the consideration actually received by the Company upon such exercise plus the consideration, if any, actually received by the Company for the issuance, sale or grant of all such rights, options, warrants, or conversion privileges whether or not exercised; provided, however, that no such readjustment shall have the effect of decreasing the number of Shares purchasable upon exercise of the Warrants by an amount in excess of the amount of the adjustment initially made in respect of the issuance, sale, or grant of such rights, options, warrants, or conversion rights.
No Adjustment for Dividends. Except as provided in Section 4.1, no adjustment in respect of any dividends or distributions out of earnings shall be made during the term of the Warrants or upon the exercise of the Warrants.
No Adjustment in Certain Cases. No adjustments shall be made pursuant to Section 4 hereof in connection with the issuance of the Common Stock upon exercise of the Warrants. No adjustments shall be made pursuant to Section 4 hereof in connection with grant or exercise of presently authorized or outstanding options to purchase, or the issuance of shares of Common Stock under the Companys director or employee benefit plan.
Preservation of Purchase Rights upon Reclassification, Consolidation, etc. In case of any consolidation of the Company with or merger of the Company into another corporation, or in case of any sale or conveyance to another corporation of the property, assets, or business of the Company as an entirety or substantially as an entirety, the Company or such successor or purchasing corporation, as the case may be, shall execute with the Warrantholder an agreement that the Warrantholder shall have the right thereafter upon payment of the Exercise Price in effect immediately prior to such action to purchase, upon exercise of the Warrants, the kind and amount of shares and other securities and property which it would have owned or have been entitled to receive after the happening of such consolidation, merger, sale, or conveyance had the Warrants been exercised immediately prior to such action. In the event of a merger described in Section 368(a)(2)(E) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, in which the Company is the surviving corporation, the right to purchase Shares under the Warrants shall terminate on the date of such merger and thereupon the Warrants shall become null and void, but only if the controlling corporation shall agree to substitute for the Warrants, its warrants which entitle the holder thereof to purchase upon their exercise the kind and amount of shares and other securities and property which it would have owned or been entitled to receive had the Warrants been exercised immediately prior to such merger. Any such agreements referred to in this Section 4.4 shall provide for adjustments, which shall be as nearly equivalent as may be practicable to the adjustments provided for in Section 4 hereof. The provisions of this Section (4.4) shall similarly apply to successive consolidations, mergers, sales, or conveyances.
Par Value of Shares of Common Stock. Before taking any action which would cause an adjustment effectively reducing the portion of the Exercise Price allocable to each Share below the par value per share of the Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrants, the Company will take any corporate action which may, in the opinion of its counsel, be necessary in order that the Company may validly and legally issue fully paid and nonassessable Common Stock upon exercise of the Warrants.
Independent Public Accountants. The Company may retain a firm of independent public accountants of recognized national standing (which may be any such firm regularly employed by the Company) to make any computation required under this Section 4, and a certificate signed by such firm shall be conclusive evidence of the correctness of any computation made under this Section 4.
Statement on Warrants. Irrespective of any adjustments in the number of securities issuable upon exercise of the Warrants, Warrants theretofore or thereafter issued may continue to express the same number of securities as are stated in the similar Warrants initially issuable pursuant to this Agreement. However, the Company may, at any time in its sole discretion (which shall be conclusive), make any change in the form of Warrant that it may deem appropriate and that does not affect the substance thereof; and any Warrant thereafter issued, whether upon registration of transfer of, or in exchange or substitution for, an outstanding Warrant, may be in the form so changed.
Treasury Stock. For purposes of this Section 4, shares of Common Stock owned or held at any relevant time by, or for the account of, the Company, in its treasury or otherwise, shall not be deemed to be outstanding for purposes of the calculations and adjustments described.
Payment of Exercise Price
The payment of the Exercise Price shall be made in cash or by check or any combination thereof. Warrant holders may also make payment of the Exercise Price by Warrant conversion. Warrant holders wishing to pay all or any part of the Exercise Price by Warrant conversion should contact the Company for further information and the appropriate forms.
Right to Redeem. The Company may, at its option, redeem the Warrants in whole or in part on a pro rata basis for a redemption price of $.05 per Warrant (the Redemption Price) on 15 days prior written notice to the Warrant Holders. The right to redeem the Warrants may be exercised by the Company only in the event (i) the average of the closing sale prices of the Companys common stock is at or above $3.00 per share for twenty (20) out of the thirty (30) trading preceding the date the Warrants are called, (ii) the Warrant Securities can be resold pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Act, (iii) the expiration of the 15 days notice period is within the Exercise Period. In the event the Company exercises its right to redeem the Warrants, the Expiration Date will be deemed to be, and the Warrants will be exercisable until the close of business on, the date fixed for redemption in such notice (the Redemption Date). If any Warrant called for redemption is not exercised by such time, it will cease to be exercisable and the Warrant Holder thereof will be entitled only to the Redemption Price.
Termination of Rights. From and after the Redemption Date, all rights of the holders of record of redeemed Warrants (except the right to receive the Redemption Price) shall terminate.
Payment of Redemption Price. The Company shall pay to the holders of record of redeemed Warrants all amounts to which the holders of record of such redeemed Warrants who shall have surrendered their Warrants are entitled.
Notice to Holders.
If, prior to the expiration of this Warrant either by its terms or by its exercise in full, any of the following shall occur:
the Company shall declare a dividend or authorize any other distribution on its Common Stock; or
the Company shall authorize the granting to the shareholders of its Common Stock of rights to subscribe for or purchase any securities or any other similar rights; or
any reclassification, reorganization or similar change of the Common Stock, or any consolidation or merger to which the Company is a party, or the sale, lease, or exchange of any significant portion of the assets of the Company; or
the voluntary or involuntary dissolution, liquidation or winding up of the Company; or
any purchase, retirement or redemption by the Company of its Common Stock;
then, and in any such case, the Company shall deliver to the Holder or Holders written notice thereof at least 30 days prior to the earliest applicable date specified below with respect to which notice is to be given, which notice shall state the following:
the date on which a record is to be taken for the purpose of such dividend, distribution or rights, or, if a record is not to be taken, the date as of which the shareholders of Common Stock of record to be entitled to such dividend, distribution or rights are to be determined;
the date on which such reclassification, reorganization, consolidation, merger, sale, transfer, dissolution, liquidation, winding up or purchase, retirement or redemption is expected to become effective, and the date, if any, as of which the Companys shareholders of Common Stock of record shall be entitled to exchange their Common Stock for securities or other property deliverable upon such reclassification, reorganization, consolidation, merger, sale, transfer, dissolution, liquidation, winding up, purchase, retirement or redemption; and
if any matters referred to in the foregoing clauses (x) and (y) are to be voted upon by shareholders of Common Stock, the date as of which those shareholders to be entitled to vote are to be determined.
Whenever the Exercise Price or the aggregate number of Warrant Securities purchasable pursuant to this Warrant shall be adjusted as required by the provisions of Section 4 above, the Company shall promptly file with its Secretary or an Assistant Secretary at its principal office, and with its transfer agent, if any, an officers certificate executed by the Companys President and Secretary or Assistant Secretary, describing the adjustment and setting forth, in reasonable detail, the facts requiring such adjustment and the basis for and calculation of such adjustment in accordance with the provisions of this Warrant. Each such officers certificate shall be made available to the Holder or Holders of this Warrant for inspection at all reasonable times, and the Company, after each such adjustment, shall promptly deliver a copy of the officers certificate relating to that adjustment to the Holder or Holders of this Warrant. The officers certificate described in this Section 8 shall be deemed to be conclusive as to the correctness of the adjustment reflected therein if, and only if, no Holder of this Warrant delivers written notice to the Company of an objection to the adjustment within 30 days after the officers certificate is delivered to the Holder or Holders of this Warrant. The Company will make its books and records available for inspection and copying during normal business hours by the Holder so as to permit a determination as to the correctness of the adjustment. If written notice of an objection is delivered by a Holder to the Company and the parties cannot reconcile the dispute, the Holder and the Company shall submit the dispute to arbitration pursuant to the provisions of Section 20 below. Failure to prepare or provide the officers certificate shall not modify the parties rights hereunder.
Reservation of Warrant Securities.
There has been reserved, and the Company shall at all times keep reserved so long as the Warrants remain outstanding, out of its authorized and unissued Common Stock, such number of shares of Common Stock as shall be subject to purchase under the Warrants. Every transfer agent for the Common Stock and other securities of the Company issuable upon the exercise of the Warrants will be irrevocably authorized and directed at all times to reserve such number of authorized shares and other securities as shall be requisite for such purpose. The Company will keep a copy of this Agreement on file with every transfer agent for the Common Stock and other securities of the Company issuable upon the exercise of the Warrants. The Company will supply every such transfer agent with duly executed stock and other certificates, as appropriate, for such purpose and will provide or otherwise make available any cash which may be payable as provided in Section 14 hereof.
Restrictions on Transfer; Registration Rights.
Restrictions on Transfer. The Warrantholder agrees that prior to making any disposition of the Warrants or the Shares, the Warrantholder shall give written notice to the Company describing briefly the manner in which any such proposed disposition is to be made; and no such disposition shall be made if the Company has notified the Warrantholder that in the opinion of counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Warrantholder, there is no applicable exemption from the registration requirements under the Act available for the disposition, and a registration statement or other notification or post-effective amendment thereto (hereinafter collectively a Registration Statement) under the Act is required with respect to such disposition and no such Registration Statement has been filed by the Company with, and declared effective, if necessary, by, the Commission.
Registration Right. The Warrant Securities are subject to the terms of a Registration Rights Agreement. Upon request, a copy of the Registration Rights Agreement is available, without charge, from the Company.
Payment of Taxes.
The Company will pay all documentary stamp taxes, if any, attributable to the initial issuance of the Warrants or the securities comprising the Shares; provided, however, the Company shall not be required to pay any tax which may be payable in respect of any transfer of the Warrants or the securities comprising the Shares.
Transfer to Comply With the Securities Act of 1933
This Warrant, the Warrant Securities, and all other securities issued or issuable upon exercise of this Warrant, may not be offered, sold or transferred, in whole or in part, except in compliance with the Act, and except in compliance with all applicable state securities laws. The Company may cause substantially the following legends, or their equivalents, to be set forth on each certificate representing the Warrant Securities, or any other security issued or issuable upon exercise of this Warrant, not theretofore distributed to the public or sold to underwriters, as defined by the Act, for distribution to the public pursuant to Section 8 above:
THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT
BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933 OR ANY STATE SECURITIES LAWS AND MAY NOT BE SOLD, EXCHANGED, HYPOTHECATED OR TRANSFERRED IN ANY MANNER EXCEPT IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE AGREEMENT PURSUANT TO WHICH THEY WERE ISSUED.
Any legend required by applicable state securities laws.
Any certificate issued at any time in exchange or substitution for any certificate bearing such legends (except a new certificate issued upon completion of a public distribution pursuant to a registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Act), or the securities represented thereby) shall also bear the above legends unless, in the opinion of the Companys counsel, the securities represented thereby need no longer be subject to such restrictions.
No fractional shares or scrip representing fractional shares shall be issued upon the exercise of all or any part of this Warrant. With respect to any fraction of a share of any security called for upon any exercise of this Warrant, the Company shall pay to the Holder an amount in money equal to that fraction multiplied by the Current Market Price of that share.
No Rights as Stockholder; Notices to Warrantholder.
Nothing contained in this Agreement or in the Warrants shall be construed as conferring upon the Warrantholder or its transferees any rights as a stockholder of the Company, including the right to vote, receive dividends, consent or receive notices as a stockholder in respect to any meeting of stockholders for the election of directors of the Company or any other matter. The Company covenants, however, that for so long as this Warrant is at least partially unexercised, it will furnish any Holder of this Warrant with copies of all reports and communications furnished to the shareholders of the Company. In addition, if at any time prior to the expiration of the Warrants and prior to their exercise, any one or more of the following events shall occur:
(a) any action which would require an adjustment pursuant to Section 4.1 (except subsections 4.1(e) and 4.1(h) or 4.4; or
(b) a dissolution, liquidation, or winding up of the Company (other than in connection with a consolidation, merger, or sale of its property, assets, and business as an entirety or substantially as an entirety) shall be proposed:
then the Company shall give notice in writing of such event to the Warrantholder, as provided in Section 17 hereof, at least 20 days prior to the date fixed as a record date or the date of closing the transfer books for the determination of the stockholders entitled to any relevant dividend, distribution, subscription rights or other rights or for the
determination of stockholders entitled to vote on such proposed dissolution, liquidation, or winding up. Such notice shall specify such record date or the date of closing the transfer books, as the case may be. Failure to mail or receive notice or any defect therein shall not affect the validity of any action taken with respect thereto.
Charges Due Upon Exercise
The Company shall pay any and all issue or transfer taxes, including, but not limited to, all federal or state taxes, that may be payable with respect to the transfer of this Warrant or the issue or delivery of Warrant Securities upon the exercise of this Warrant.
Warrant Securities to be Fully Paid
The Company covenants that all Warrant Securities that may be issued and delivered to a Holder of this Warrant upon the exercise of this Warrant and payment of the Exercise Price will be, upon such delivery, validly and duly issued, fully paid and nonassessable.
Any notice pursuant to this Agreement by the Company or by a Warrantholder or a holder of Shares shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been duly given if delivered or mailed by certified mail, return receipt requested:

This Warrant shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Washington, and courts located in Spokane County, Washington shall have exclusive jurisdiction over all disputes arising hereunder.
The Company and the Holder, and by receipt of this Warrant or any Warrant Securities, all subsequent Holders or holders of Warrant Securities, agree to submit all controversies, claims, disputes and matters of difference with respect to this Warrant, including, without limitation, the application of this Section 20 to arbitration in Spokane, Washington, according to the rules and practices of the American Arbitration Association from time to time in force; provided, however, that if such rules and practices conflict with the applicable procedures of Washington courts of general jurisdiction or any other provisions of Washington law then in force, those Washington rules and provisions shall govern. This agreement to arbitrate shall be specifically enforceable. Arbitration may proceed in the absence of any party if notice of the proceeding has been given to that party. The parties agree to abide by all awards rendered in any such proceeding. These awards shall be final and binding on all parties to the extent and in the manner provided by the rules of civil procedure enacted in Washington. All awards may be filed, as a basis of judgment and of the issuance of execution for its collection, with the clerk of one or more courts, state or federal, having jurisdiction over either the party against whom that award is rendered or its property. No party shall be considered in default hereunder during the pendency of arbitration proceedings relating to that default.
