Credit Facility: This Warrant to Purchase Stock (“Warrant”) is issued in connection with that certain Financing Agreement of even date herewith between Blue Torch Finance LLC, as administrative agent and collateral agent, the Lenders from time to time party thereto and the Company (as amended and/or modified and in effect from time to time, the “Financing Agreement”).

SECTION 1. EXERCISE.
1.1 Method of Exercise. Holder may at any time and from time to time exercise this Warrant, in whole or in part, by delivering to the Company the original of this Warrant (or an indemnification undertaking with respect to this Warrant in the case of its loss, theft, destruction or mutilation) together with a duly executed Notice of Exercise in substantially the form attached hereto as Appendix 1 and, unless Holder is exercising this Warrant pursuant to a cashless exercise set forth in Section 1.2, a check, wire transfer of same-day funds (to an account designated by the Company), or other form of payment acceptable to the Company for the aggregate Warrant Price for the Shares being purchased. Notwithstanding any contrary provision herein, if this Warrant was originally executed and/or delivered electronically, in no event shall Holder be required to surrender or deliver an ink-signed paper copy of this Warrant in connection with its exercise hereof
or of any rights hereunder, nor shall Holder be required to surrender or deliver a paper or other physical copy of this Warrant in connection with any exercise hereof.
1.2 Cashless Exercise.
On any exercise of this Warrant, in lieu of payment of the aggregate Warrant Price in the manner as specified in Section 1.1 above, but otherwise in accordance with the requirements of Section 1.1, Holder may elect to receive Shares equal to the value of this Warrant, or portion hereof as to which this Warrant is being exercised. Thereupon, the Company shall issue to the Holder such number of fully paid and non-assessable Shares as are computed using the following formula:
X = Y(A-B)/A
X = the number of Shares to be issued to the Holder;
Y = the number of Shares with respect to which this Warrant is being exercised (inclusive of the Shares surrendered to the Company in payment of the aggregate Warrant Price);
A = the fair market value (as determined pursuant to Section 1.3 below) of one Share; and
B = the Warrant Price.
1.3 Fair Market Value. If shares of the Class are then traded or quoted on a nationally recognized securities exchange, inter-dealer quotation system or over-the-counter market (a “Trading Market”), the fair market value of a Share shall be the closing price or last sale price of a share of the Class reported for the Business Day immediately before the date on which Holder delivers this Warrant (to the extent required) together with its Notice of Exercise to the Company. If shares of the Class are not then traded in a Trading Market, the Board of Directors of the Company shall determine the fair market value of a Share in good faith and in reliance on the advice of a nationally recognized independent valuation firm or investment banking firm retained by the Company for this purpose.
1.4 Delivery of Certificate and New Warrant. Within a reasonable time, and in any event not exceeding five (5) Business Days, after the Holder exercises this Warrant in the manner set forth in Section 1.1 or 1.2 above, the Company shall deliver to Holder a certificate representing the Shares issued to Holder upon such exercise and, if this Warrant has not been fully exercised and has not expired, a new warrant of like tenor representing the Shares not so acquired. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Holder shall be deemed to have purchased, and shall be deemed to be the record holder of, such Shares as of the date of exercise.
1.5 Replacement of Warrant. 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, substance and amount to
the Company or, in the case of mutilation, on surrender of this Warrant to the Company for cancellation, the Company shall, within a reasonable time, execute and deliver to Holder, in lieu of this Warrant, a new warrant of like tenor and amount.
1.6 Treatment of Warrant Upon Acquisition of Company.
(a) Acquisition. For the purpose of this Warrant, “Acquisition” means any transaction or series of related transactions involving: (i) the sale, lease, exclusive license, or other disposition of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company; (ii) any merger or consolidation of the Company into or with another person or entity (other than a merger or consolidation effected exclusively to change the Company’s domicile), or any other corporate reorganization, in which the stockholders of the Company in their capacity as such immediately prior to such merger, consolidation or reorganization, own less than a majority of the Company’s (or the parent, surviving or successor entity’s) outstanding voting power immediately after such merger, consolidation or reorganization; or (iii) the acquisition by any person or group of related persons (as defined in Rule 13d-5(b)(1) promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)) of beneficial ownership (as defined in Rule 13d-3 of the Exchange Act) of shares representing a majority of the Company’s then-total outstanding combined voting power.
(b) Treatment of Warrant at Acquisition.
(i) In the event of an Acquisition in which the consideration to be received by the Company’s stockholders consists solely of cash, solely of Marketable Securities or a combination of cash and Marketable Securities (a “Cash/Public Acquisition”), and the fair market value of one Share as determined in accordance with Section 1.3 above (assuming for such purposes that this Warrant and the Notice of Exercise were delivered to the Company on the date of the closing of such Cash/Public Acquisition) would be greater than the Warrant Price in effect on such date immediately prior to such Cash/Public Acquisition, and Holder has not exercised this Warrant pursuant to Section 1.1 above as to all Shares, then this Warrant shall automatically be deemed to be a Cashless Exercise pursuant to Section 1.2 above as to all Shares effective immediately prior to and contingent upon the consummation of a Cash/Public Acquisition. In connection with such Cashless Exercise, Holder shall be deemed to have restated each of the representations and warranties in Section 4 of the Warrant as of the date thereof and the Company shall promptly notify the Holder of the number of Shares (or such other securities) issued upon exercise. In the event of a Cash/Public Acquisition where the fair market value of one Share as determined in accordance with the Section 1.3 above would be less than the Warrant Price in effect immediately prior to such Cash/Public Acquisition, then this Warrant will expire immediately prior to the consummation of such Cash/Public Acquisition.
(ii) Upon the closing of any Acquisition other than a Cash/Public Acquisition, the acquiring, surviving or successor entity shall assume the obligations of this Warrant, and this Warrant shall thereafter be exercisable for the same securities and/or other property as would have been paid for the Shares issuable upon exercise of the unexercised portion of this Warrant as if such Shares were outstanding on and as of the closing of such Acquisition, subject to further adjustment from time to time in accordance with the provisions of this Warrant.
(c) As used in this Warrant, “Marketable Securities” means securities meeting all of the following requirements: (i) the issuer thereof is then subject to the reporting requirements of Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act, and is then current in its filing of all required reports and other information under the Act and the Exchange Act; (ii) the class and series of shares or other security of the issuer that would be received by Holder in connection with the Acquisition were Holder to exercise this Warrant on or prior to the closing thereof is then traded in a Trading Market, and (iii) following the closing of such Acquisition, Holder would not be restricted from publicly re-selling all of the issuer’s shares and/or other securities that would be received by Holder in such Acquisition were Holder to exercise this Warrant in full on or prior to the closing of such Acquisition, except to the extent that any such restriction (x) arises solely under federal or state securities laws, rules or regulations, and (y) does not extend beyond six (6) months from the closing of such Acquisition.
SECTION 2. ADJUSTMENTS TO THE SHARES AND WARRANT PRICE.
2.1 Stock Dividends, Splits, Etc.
(a) If the Company declares or pays a dividend or distribution on the outstanding shares of the Class payable in additional shares of the Class or cash, other securities or property, then upon exercise of this Warrant, for each Share acquired, Holder shall receive, without additional cost to Holder, the total amount of cash or number and kind of securities and property, as applicable, which Holder would have received had Holder owned the Shares of record as of the date the dividend or distribution occurred.
(b) If the Company subdivides the outstanding shares of the Class by reclassification or otherwise into a greater number of shares, the number of Shares purchasable hereunder shall be proportionately increased and the Warrant Price shall be proportionately decreased. If the outstanding shares of the Class are combined or consolidated, by reclassification or otherwise, into a lesser number of shares, the Warrant Price shall be proportionately increased and the number of Shares shall be proportionately decreased.
2.2 Reclassification, Exchange, Combinations or Substitution. Upon any event whereby all of the outstanding shares of the Class are reclassified, exchanged, combined, substituted, or replaced for, into, with or by Company securities of a different class and/or series, then from and after the consummation of such event, this Warrant will be exercisable for the number, class and series of Company securities that Holder would have received had the Shares been outstanding on and as of the consummation of such event, and subject to further adjustment thereafter from time to time in accordance with the provisions of this Warrant. The provisions of this Section 2.2 shall similarly apply to successive reclassifications, exchanges, combinations, substitutions, replacements or other similar events.
2.3 No Fractional Share. No fractional Share shall be issuable upon exercise of this Warrant and the number of Shares to be issued shall be rounded down to the nearest whole Share. If a fractional Share interest arises upon any exercise of the Warrant, the Company shall eliminate such fractional Share interest by paying Holder in cash the amount computed by multiplying the fractional interest
by (i) the fair market value (as determined in accordance with Section 1.3 above) of a full Share, less (ii) the then-effective Warrant Price.
2.4 Certain Repurchases of Common Stock.
(a) In case the Company effects a Pro Rata Repurchase of shares of the Class, then:
(i) the Warrant Price shall be adjusted to the price determined by multiplying the Warrant Price in effect immediately prior to the effective date of such Pro Rata Repurchase by a fraction of which the numerator shall be (x) the product of (1) the number of shares of the Class outstanding immediately before such Pro Rata Repurchase and (2) the Fair Market Value of a share of the Class, as determined in accordance with Section 1.3 above (assuming for such purposes that this Warrant and the Notice of Exercise were delivered on the date of the first public announcement by the Company or any of its affiliates of the intent to effect such Pro Rata Repurchase), minus (y) the aggregate purchase price of the Pro Rata Repurchase, and of which the denominator shall be the product of (1) the number of shares of the Class outstanding immediately prior to such Pro Rata Repurchase minus the number of shares of the Class so repurchased and (2) the Fair Market Value per share of the Class, as determined in accordance with Section 1.3 above (assuming for such purposes that this Warrant and the Notice of Exercise were delivered on the date of the first public announcement by the Company or any of its affiliates of the intent to effect such Pro Rata Repurchase); provided, that if the Warrant Price as adjusted by the foregoing would result in a Warrant Price that is greater after the Pro Rata Repurchase than it was immediately before such Pro Rata Repurchase, then such Warrant Price will remain the same as the Warrant Price immediately before such Pro Rata Repurchase; and
(ii) the number of Shares issuable upon the exercise of the Warrant shall be adjusted to the number obtained by dividing (x) the product of (1) the number of Shares issuable upon the exercise of the Warrant before such adjustment, and (2) the Warrant Price in effect immediately prior to the Pro Rata Repurchase giving rise to this adjustment by (y) the new Warrant Price determined in accordance with clause (d)(i).
(b) “Pro Rata Repurchase” means any purchase of shares of the Class by the Company or any affiliate thereof pursuant to (i) any tender offer or exchange offer subject to Section 13(e) or 14(e) of the Exchange Act or Regulation 14E promulgated thereunder or (ii) any other offer available to substantially all holders of shares of the Class, in the case of both of the foregoing clauses (i) or (ii), whether for cash, shares of the Class of the Company, other securities of the Company, evidences of indebtedness of the Company or any other Person or any other property (including, without limitation, shares of the Class, other securities or evidences of indebtedness of a subsidiary), or any combination thereof, effected while this Warrant is outstanding. The “effective date” of a Pro Rata Repurchase shall mean the date of acceptance of shares for purchase or exchange by the Company under any tender or exchange offer that is a Pro Rata Repurchase or the date of purchase with respect to any Pro Rata Repurchase that is not a tender or exchange offer.
2.5 Notice/Certificate as to Adjustments. Upon each adjustment of the Warrant Price, Class and/or number of Shares, the Company, at the Company’s expense, shall notify Holder in writing within a reasonable time setting forth the adjustments to the Warrant Price, Class and/or number of Shares
and facts upon which such adjustment is based. The Company shall, upon written request from Holder, furnish Holder with a certificate of its Chief Financial Officer, including computations of such adjustment and the Warrant Price, Class and number of Shares in effect upon the date of such adjustment.
SECTION 3. REPRESENTATIONS AND COVENANTS OF THE COMPANY.
3.1 Representations and Warranties. The Company represents and warrants to, covenants that, and agrees with, the Holder as follows:

(e) The Company shall use its reasonable best efforts to cause the Shares, immediately upon such exercise, to be listed on any domestic securities exchange upon which shares of the Class or other securities constituting the Shares are listed at the time of such exercise.

(a) declare any dividend or distribution upon the outstanding shares of the Class, whether in cash, property, stock, or other securities and whether or not a regular cash dividend;
(b) offer for subscription or sale pro rata to the holders of the outstanding shares of the Class any additional shares of any class or series of the Company’s stock (other than pursuant to contractual pre-emptive rights);
