8.4            Procedure for Indemnification with Respect to Third-Party Claims.  The party seeking indemnification (the “Indemnified Party”) shall give the party from whom indemnification is being sought (the “Indemnifying Party”) prompt written notice of any Indemnification Claim to which the indemnity set forth in Section 8.2 or 8.3 applies, as applicable, which notice to be effective must describe such claim in reasonable detail (the “Indemnification Notice”).  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Indemnified Party shall not have any obligation to give any notice of any assertion of liability by a third party unless such assertion is in writing and the rights of the Indemnified Party to be indemnified hereunder in respect of any third party claim shall not be adversely affected by its failure to give notice pursuant to the foregoing unless and, if so, only to the extent that, the Indemnifying Party is materially prejudiced thereby.  The Indemnifying Party shall have the right to control the defense or settlement of any such Indemnification Claim subject to the provisions set forth below, but the Indemnified Party may, at its election, participate in the defense of any Indemnification Claim at its sole cost and expense.  Should the Indemnifying Party fail timely to defend any such action (except for failure resulting from the Indemnified Party’s failure to timely give the Indemnification Notice), then, in addition to any other remedy, the Indemnified Party may settle or defend such Indemnification Claim through counsel of its own choosing and may recover from the Indemnifying Party the amount of such settlement, demand, or any judgment or decree and all of its costs and expenses, including reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel.
 
8.5            Cooperation in the Defense of Claims.  In the event that an Indemnification Claim is asserted, the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party shall each cooperate in all reasonable respects with the other.  Such cooperation shall include making available on reasonable notice during normal business hours at the cost of the Indemnifying Party such business records as relate to the Business and the transactions contemplated hereby and suitable personnel with knowledge of the foregoing.

8.6            Escrow Arrangements; Indemnification Payments.
 
(a)            Any indemnification claim made by a Remark Indemnified Party prior to the Escrow Termination Date shall be referred to as a “Remark Escrow Claim”.  Any Indemnified Party seeking indemnity under this Article VIII shall deliver a notice to the Indemnifying Party and in the case of a Remark Escrow Claim, such notice shall also be delivered to the Escrow Agent (each a “Claim Notice”).  Each Claim Notice shall (i) contain a brief description of the basis for such Indemnified Party’s indemnity claim and (ii) contain a good faith, non-binding, preliminary estimate of the aggregate dollar amount of actual and potential Losses that have arisen and may arise as a result of the inaccuracy or breach or other matter referred to in such Claim Notice (the amount of such estimate, as it may be modified by such Indemnified Party in good faith from time to time, the “Claimed Amount”).
 
(b)            During the 45-day period commencing upon the delivery by an Indemnified Party of a Claim Notice (the “Dispute Period”), the Indemnifying Party, as applicable, shall determine in good faith whether it disputes the indemnity claim or the amount thereof, and it shall so notify the Indemnified Party (the “Response Notice”) together with a reasonable explanation that it (i) agrees that the full Claimed Amount is owed to the Indemnified Party; (ii) agrees that part (but asserts that not all) of the Claimed Amount is owed to the Indemnified Party; or (iii) asserts that no part of the Claimed Amount is owed to the Indemnified Party.  Unless it shall have timely delivered such a notice indicating that it disputes all or part of the claim, the Claimed Amount set forth in the Claim Notice shall be conclusively deemed to be valid and accepted.  Any part of the Claimed Amount that is disputed by the responding party pursuant to the Response Notice shall be referred to as the “Contested Amount” (it being understood that the Contested Amount shall be modified from time to time to reflect any good faith modifications by the Indemnified Party to the Claimed Amount).  If a Response Notice is timely delivered, the indemnification claim shall be “finally determined” when (i) the parties to the dispute have reached an agreement in writing, (ii) a court of competent jurisdiction shall have entered a final and non-appealable order or judgment, or (iii) an arbitration or like panel shall have rendered a final non-appealable determination with respect to disputes the parties have agreed to submit thereto.
 
(c)            (i)            In the case of a Remark Escrow Claim, if a Response Notice is delivered agreeing that the full Claimed Amount, or a portion thereof, is owed or no Response Notice is timely delivered, then Remark, the Surviving Corporation and the Stockholders shall jointly execute and deliver to the Escrow Agent, within three (3) Business Days following the earlier of the delivery of such Response Notice or the expiration of the Dispute Period, a written notice instructing the Escrow Agent to disburse such number Closing Shares held in the Escrow Account that equal the aggregate value (on the day immediately prior to the delivery of such notice to the Escrow Agent) of the full Claimed Amount set forth in the Claim Notice, or such undisputed portion (as applicable), to the Indemnified Party from the Escrow Account.  In the case of a Remark Escrow Claim, if a Response Notice is timely delivered indicating there is a Contested Amount, then within three (3) Business Days after the amount of the claim has been finally determined, Remark, the Surviving Corporation and the Stockholders shall jointly execute and deliver to the Escrow Agent a written notice instructing the Escrow Agent to disburse to the Indemnified Party such number Closing Shares held in the Escrow Account that equal the aggregate value (on the day immediately prior to the delivery of such notice to the Escrow Agent) of such amount.
 
 
31

 
 
(ii)           In the case of an indemnification claim made by the Company indemnified Parties (a “Company Indemnification Claim”), if a Response Notice is delivered agreeing that the full Claimed Amount, or a portion thereof, is owed or no Response Notice is timely delivered, then Remark and the Surviving Corporation shall within three (3) Business Days pay to the Company Indemnified Parties the full Claimed Amount set forth in the Claim Notice, or such undisputed portion.  In the case of a Company Indemnification Claim, if a Response Notice is timely delivered indicating there is a Contested Amount, then within three (3) Business Days after the amount of the claim has been finally determined, Remark and the Surviving Corporation shall pay to the to the Company Indemnified Parties such amount.
 
(d)            The Closing Shares held in the Escrow Account shall be disbursed to the Stockholders (for the benefit of all recipients of the Closing Shares) as follows:
 
(i)            If the value of the Closing Shares held in the Escrow Account as of the Escrow Termination Date exceeds the aggregate amount of the unpaid Claimed Amounts (including the entire Claimed Amount with respect to each indemnification claim as to which the Dispute Period has not yet expired and no Response Notice has been delivered) associated with all unresolved Remark Escrow Claims as of the Escrow Termination Date, then within three (3) Business Days thereafter Remark, the Surviving Corporation and the Stockholders shall jointly execute and deliver to the Escrow Agent a written notice instructing the Escrow Agent to disburse from the Escrow Account to the recipients of Closing Shares in such percentages as set forth on Exhibit C hereto such number of Closing Shares equal to the amount by which the aggregate value (as of the Escrow Termination Date) of such Closing Shares remaining in the Escrow Account as of the Escrow Termination Date exceeds the sum of such unpaid Claimed Amounts.
 
(ii)           Following the Escrow Termination Date, each time a Remark Escrow Claim that had not, prior to that date, been finally determined and paid in accordance with this Article VIII (an “Unresolved Escrow Claim”) is finally determined, Remark, the Surviving Corporation and the Stockholders shall jointly execute and deliver to the Escrow Agent, within three (3) Business Days after the final resolution of each such Unresolved Escrow Claim and the disbursement from the Escrow Account of all Closing Shares, if any, owing to the Indemnified Party that asserted such Unresolved Escrow Claim, a written notice instructing the Escrow Agent to disburse from the Escrow Account to the recipients of Closing Shares in such percentages as set forth on Exhibit C hereto such number of Closing Shares equal to the amount by which the aggregate value (as of the date of the disbursement) of such Closing Shares exceeds the aggregate amount of the unpaid Claimed Amounts (including the entire Claimed Amount with respect to each indemnification claim as to which the Dispute Period has not yet expired and no Response Notice has been delivered), if any, associated with any remaining Unresolved Escrow Claims.
 
(e)            The aggregate value of the Closing Shares held in the Escrow Account as of a given date or to be disbursed from the Escrow Account in accordance with this Section 8.6 shall be calculated by the multiplying the applicable number of Closing Shares by the Current Market Price.
 
 
32

 
 
8.7            Additional Indemnification Provisions.
 
(a)            Any Indemnification Claim to be made by Remark or the Stockholders, as the case may be, shall be made on or prior to the expiration of the applicable survival period set forth in Section 8.1, except as otherwise provided therein.
 
(b)            Except with respect to any claim based upon fraud or willful misrepresentation or misconduct, none of the Remark Indemnified Parties or Company Indemnified Parties shall be permitted to recover any Losses under Section 8.2 or Section 8.3, respectively, unless and until the aggregate amount of Losses under such Section considered together exceeds Fifty Thousand Dollars ($50,000); provided that any Losses under Section 8.2(a)(iii) are excluded from this calculation, and the Remark Indemnified Parties shall be entitled to payment thereunder for all such Losses from the first dollar.
 
(c)            Except with respect to any claim based upon fraud or willful misrepresentation or misconduct by the Company or the Stockholders and as provided in Section 8.2(b), in no event shall the total indemnification to be paid under Section 8.2 for Losses arising with respect to all matters exceed the value of the Escrow Account.
 
(d)            The right of the Indemnified Parties to indemnification or to assert or recover on any Indemnification Claim shall not be affected by any investigation conducted, or any knowledge acquired (or capable of being acquired) at any time, whether before or after the execution and delivery of this Agreement, with respect to the accuracy or performance of, or compliance with, any of the representations, warranties, covenants or agreements set forth in this Agreement or any of the other Transaction Documents.  The waiver of any condition based on the accuracy of any representation or warranty, or on the performance of or compliance with any covenant or agreement, shall not affect the right to indemnification or other remedy based on any such representation, warranty, covenant or agreement.
 
(e)            For purposes of this Article VIII, all Losses shall be computed net of any insurance coverage with respect thereto that reduces the Losses that would otherwise be sustained; provided, however, that in all cases, the timing of the receipt or realization of insurance proceeds shall be taken into account in determining the amount of reduction of Losses.
 
(f)            Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, in no event shall any party hereto have any liability hereunder to any other party hereto for consequential, indirect or incidental damages of any kind or nature or lost profits.
 
8.8            Exclusive Remedy.  The sole and exclusive remedy for any breach of or inaccuracy, or alleged breach of or inaccuracy, of any representation or warranty in this Agreement shall be indemnification in accordance with this Article VIII, except with respect to any claim based upon fraud or willful misrepresentation or misconduct by Remark, the Company, the Merger Sub or the Stockholders.

9.2            Submission to Jurisdiction; Consent to Service of Process.
 
(a)            The parties hereto hereby irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of any federal or state court located within Clark County, Nevada, over any dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any of the transactions contemplated hereby and each party hereby irrevocably agrees that all claims in respect of such dispute or any suit, action proceeding related thereto shall be heard and determined in such courts.  The parties hereby irrevocably waive, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Law, any objection which they may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any such dispute brought in such court or any defense of inconvenient forum for the maintenance of such dispute.  Each of the parties hereto agrees that a judgment in any such dispute may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by Law.

9.7            Binding Effect; No Third-Party Beneficiaries; Assignment.  This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns.  Nothing in this Agreement shall create or be deemed to create any third party beneficiary rights in any Person not a party to this Agreement, except as otherwise contemplated by Sections 8.2 and 8.3.  No assignment of this Agreement or of any rights or obligations hereunder may be made by the Company, Remark or Merger Sub, directly or indirectly (by operation of law or otherwise), without the prior written consent of the other parties hereto, and any attempted assignment without the required consents shall be void; provided, however, that Remark may assign its rights, interests and obligations hereunder to any Affiliate; provided, further, that no assignment of any obligations hereunder shall relieve the parties hereto of any such obligations.  Upon any such permitted assignment, the references in this Agreement to Remark shall also apply to any such assignee unless the context otherwise requires.
 
9.8            Specific Performance.  The parties acknowledge and agree that any breach of this Agreement would give rise to irreparable harm for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy.  The Company, Remark and Merger Sub accordingly agree that the non-breaching party shall be entitled, in addition to any other remedies available under applicable Law or this Agreement, to enforce the terms of this Agreement by decree of specific performance without the necessity of proving the inadequacy of monetary damages as a remedy and to obtain injunctive relief against any breach or threatened breach of this Agreement, without the requirement to post bond or other security.
 
9.9            Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original copy of this Agreement and all of which, when taken together, shall be deemed to constitute one and the same agreement, and photostatic, .pdf or facsimile copies of fully-executed counterparts of this Agreement shall be given the same effect as originals.

FOR VALUE RECEIVED, REMARK MEDIA, INC., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), hereby certifies that, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, [INDIVIDUAL HOLDER] (the “Holder”), its designees or permitted assigns, is entitled to purchase from the Company _________________ (_________) fully paid and nonassessable shares (as adjusted pursuant to the terms hereof, the “Warrant Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, $0.001 par value per share (the “Common Stock”), at a price per Warrant Share of [$8.00] [$12.00] (the “Warrant Price”), payable in accordance with Section 1(c) hereof; provided, however, that the Holder’s right to purchase the Warrant Shares is subject to those vesting provisions set forth in Section 1(a) hereof.
 
This Warrant is issued by the Company in connection with that certain Merger Agreement, dated as of May 2, 2014 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among the Company, Roomlia, Inc. (“Merger Sub”) and Hotelmobi, Inc. (“Hotelmobi”), pursuant to which Hotelmobi has agreed to merge with and into Merger Sub.  Except as otherwise defined herein, capitalized terms in this Warrant shall have the meanings set forth in the Merger Agreement.
 
This Warrant is issued subject to the following terms and conditions:
 
1.           Vesting and Exercise of Warrants, Issuance of Certificates.
 
(a)           The Warrant Shares shall vest and this Warrant shall become exercisable for the purchase thereof as follows: 12.5% at the end of each fiscal quarter of the Company beginning on June 30, 2014, provided that [INDIVIDUAL HOLDER] is employed by the Company or any of its Affiliates on the vesting date or was terminated prior to such vesting date other than for Cause.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if [INDIVIDUAL HOLDER] is employed by the Company or any of its Affiliates, or was terminated other than for Cause prior to, the date a Change of Control of the Company occurs, any unvested portion of this Warrant shall be deemed to vest immediately prior to the occurrence of such Change of Control of the Company.  The Holder may exercise this Warrant at any time or from time to time, for all or any part of the vested Warrant Shares (but not for a fraction of a share) that may be purchased hereunder, as that number may be adjusted pursuant to Section 3 below, prior to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the five (5) year anniversary of the date hereof (the “Expiration Date”).  The Company agrees that the Warrant Shares purchased under this Warrant shall be and are deemed to be issued to the Holder as the record owner of such Warrant Shares as of the close of business on the date on which this Warrant shall have been surrendered, properly endorsed, the completed and executed Form of Subscription in the form attached hereto delivered, and payment made for such Warrant Shares made in accordance with Section 1(c) below (each, a “Date of Exercise”).  Certificates for the Warrant Shares so purchased, together with any other securities or property to which the Holder is entitled upon such exercise, shall be delivered to the Holder by the Company at the Company’s expense as soon as practicable after the rights represented by this Warrant have been so exercised, but in any event not later than ten (10) Business Days following the Date of Exercise.  In case of a purchase of less than all the Warrant Shares that may be purchased under this Warrant, the Company shall cancel this Warrant and execute and deliver to the Holder within a reasonable time a new Warrant or Warrants of like tenor for the balance of the Warrant Shares purchasable under the Warrant surrendered upon such purchase.  Each stock certificate so delivered shall be registered in the name of the Holder and issued with a legend in substantially the form of the legend placed on the front of this Warrant.
 
 
 

 
 
(b)           The Company’s obligations to issue and deliver Warrant Shares in accordance with the terms hereof are absolute and unconditional, irrespective of any action or inaction by the Holder to enforce the same.  Nothing herein shall limit the Holder’s right to pursue any other remedies available to it hereunder, at law or in equity including, without limitation, a decree of specific performance and/or injunctive relief with respect to the Company’s failure to timely deliver certificates representing shares of Common Stock upon exercise of this Warrant as required pursuant to the terms hereof.
 
(c)           The Holder shall pay the Warrant Price by certified or official bank check payable to the order of, or wire transfer of immediately available funds to, the Company, or by other means determined to be acceptable by the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”), in its sole discretion.
 
(d)           For purposes of this Warrant, “Change of Control” means (i) the sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company to a non-Affiliate of the Company or (ii) Kai-Shing Tao no longer serves as the Chairman of the Board of the Company.
 
2.           Shares to be Fully Paid; Reservation of Shares.  The Company covenants and agrees that all Warrant Shares, will, upon issuance and payment of the Warrant Price, be duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable, and free of all preemptive rights, liens and encumbrances, except for restrictions on transfer provided for herein.  The Company shall at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized and unissued Common Stock, solely for the purpose of providing for the exercise of the rights to purchase all Warrant Shares granted pursuant to this Warrant, such number of shares of Common Stock as shall, from time to time, be sufficient therefor.
 
3.           Adjustment of Warrant Price and Number of Shares.  The Warrant Price and the total number of Warrant Shares shall be subject to adjustment from time to time upon the occurrence of certain events described in this Section 3.
 
 
 

 
 
(a)           Merger, Sale of Assets, Etc.  If at any time while this Warrant, or any portion hereof, is outstanding and unexpired there shall be (i) a reorganization (other than a combination, reclassification, exchange or subdivision of shares otherwise provided for herein), (ii) a merger or consolidation of the Company with or into another corporation, partnership, limited liability company, or other entity in which the Company is not the surviving entity, or a merger in which the Company is the surviving entity but the shares of the Company’s capital stock outstanding immediately prior to the merger are converted by virtue of the merger into other property, whether in the form of securities, cash, or otherwise, or (iii) a sale or transfer of the Company’s properties and assets as, or substantially as, an entirety to any other person, then, as a part of such reorganization, merger, consolidation, sale or transfer, lawful provision shall be made so that the Holder of this Warrant shall thereafter be entitled to receive upon exercise of this Warrant, during the period specified herein and upon payment of the Warrant Price, the number of shares of stock or other securities or property of the successor corporation resulting from such reorganization, merger, consolidation, sale or transfer that a holder of the Warrant Shares deliverable upon exercise of this Warrant would have been entitled to receive in such reorganization, consolidation, merger, sale or transfer if this Warrant had been exercised immediately before such reorganization, merger, consolidation, sale or transfer, all subject to further adjustment as provided in this Section 3.  If the per share consideration payable to the Holder for securities in connection with any such transaction is in a form other than cash or marketable securities, then the value of such consideration shall be determined in good faith by the Board.  In all events, appropriate adjustment (as determined in good faith by the Board) shall be made in the application of the provisions of this Warrant with respect to the rights and interests of the Holder after the transaction, to the end that the provisions of this Warrant shall be applicable after that event, as near as reasonably may be, in relation to any shares or other property deliverable after that event upon exercise of this Warrant.
 
(b)           Reclassification, Etc.  If the Company, at any time while this Warrant or any portion hereof remains outstanding and unexpired, by reclassification of securities or otherwise, shall change any of the securities as to which purchase rights under this Warrant exist into the same or a different number of securities of any other class or classes, this Warrant shall thereafter represent the right to acquire such number and kind of securities as would have been issuable as the result of such change with respect to the securities that were subject to the purchase rights under this Warrant immediately prior to such reclassification or other change and the Warrant Price shall be appropriately adjusted, all subject to further adjustment as provided in this Section 3.
 
(c)           Split, Subdivision or Combination of Securities.  If the Company, at any time while this Warrant or any portion hereof remains outstanding and unexpired, shall split, subdivide or combine the securities as to which purchase rights under this Warrant exist, into a different number of securities of the same class, (i) the number of securities as to which purchase rights under this Warrant exist shall be proportionately increased and the Warrant Price for such securities shall be proportionately decreased in the case of a split or subdivision or (ii) the number of securities as to which purchase rights under this Warrant exist shall be proportionately decreased and the Warrant Price for such securities shall be proportionately increased in the case of a reverse split or combination.
 
 
 

 
 
(d)           Adjustments for Dividends in Stock or Other Securities or Property.  If, while this Warrant or any portion hereof remains outstanding and unexpired, the holders of the securities as to which purchase rights under this Warrant exist at the time shall have received, or, on or after the record date fixed for the determination of eligible holders, shall have become entitled to receive, without payment therefor, other or additional stock or other securities or property (other than cash) of the Company by way of dividend, then and in each case, this Warrant shall represent the right to acquire, in addition to the number of shares of the security receivable upon exercise of this Warrant, and without payment of any additional consideration therefor, the amount of such other or additional stock or other securities or property (other than cash) of the Company that such holder would hold on the date of such exercise had it been the holder of record of the security receivable upon exercise of this Warrant on the date hereof and had thereafter, during the period from the date hereof to and including the date of such exercise, retained such shares and/or all other additional stock available by it as aforesaid during such period, giving effect to all adjustments called for during such period by the provisions of this Section 3.
 
4.           No Voting or Dividend Rights.  Nothing contained in this Warrant shall be construed as conferring upon the Holder the right to vote or to consent to receive notice as a stockholder of the Company on any other matters or any rights whatsoever as a stockholder of the Company.  No dividends or interest shall be payable or accrued in respect of this Warrant or the interest represented hereby or the Warrant Shares purchasable hereunder until, and only to the extent that, this Warrant shall have been exercised.
 
5.           Compliance with the Securities Act.  The Holder, by acceptance of this Warrant, agrees that this Warrant is being acquired for its own account and not for any other person or persons, for investment purposes and that it will not offer, sell, or otherwise dispose of this Warrant except under circumstances that will not result in a violation of the Securities Act or any applicable state securities laws.
 
6.           Limited Transferability.  The Holder represents that by accepting this Warrant it understands that this Warrant and any securities obtainable upon exercise of this Warrant have not been registered for sale under federal or state securities laws and are being offered and sold to the Holder pursuant to one or more exemptions from the registration requirements of such securities laws.  In the absence of an effective registration of such securities or an exemption therefrom, any certificates for such securities shall bear the legend set forth on the first page hereof.  The Holder understands that it may bear the economic risk of its investment in this Warrant and any securities obtainable upon exercise of this Warrant for an indefinite period of time.
 
7.           Amendment, Waiver, etc.  Except as expressly provided herein, this Warrant may only be amended, waived, discharged or terminated by a writing signed by both the Company and the Holder.
 
8.           Notices.  All notices and other communications hereunder (except payment) shall be in writing and shall be deemed given when delivered personally, one business day after being delivered to a nationally recognized overnight courier or on the business day received (or the next business day if received after 5:00 p.m. local time or on a weekend or day on which banks are closed) when sent via facsimile (with a confirmatory copy sent by overnight courier) to the parties at the following addresses (or at such other address for a party as shall be specified by like notice):

12.           Successors and Assigns.  This Warrant and the rights evidenced hereby shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the successors of the Company and the successors and assigns of the Holder, including subsequent holders hereof (collectively, “Assignees”).  The provisions of this Warrant are intended to be for the benefit of all Holders from time to time of this Warrant, and shall be enforceable by any such Holder.  The Company may not assign or transfer any of its rights or obligations under this Warrant.  At any time or from time to time, the Holder shall, upon written notice to the Company, have the unrestricted right, and without the Company’s consent, to assign all or any portion of its rights and obligations under this Warrant to any of its Affiliates, which shall thereupon become vested with all the powers and rights above given to the Holder in respect thereof.  At any time or from time to time after the vesting of any portion of this Warrant, the Holder shall, upon written notice to the Company, have the unrestricted right, and without the Company’s consent, to assign such vested portion of its rights and obligations under this Warrant to any other person, which shall thereupon become vested with all the powers and rights above given to the Holder in respect thereof.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, any assignment or transfer of this Warrant shall be made in accordance with all applicable securities laws, including but not limited to the Securities Act, upon surrender of this Warrant at the principal office of the Company, together with a written Form of Assignment and Assumption in the form attached hereto duly executed by the Holder or its agent or attorney and funds sufficient to pay any applicable transfer taxes.  The Company agrees that it shall execute, or cause to be executed, such documents, instruments and agreements as the Holder shall reasonably deem necessary to effect the foregoing.  In addition, at the request of the Holder and any such Assignee, the Company shall issue one or more new Warrants, as applicable, to any such Assignee and, if the Holder has retained any of its rights and obligations under this Warrant following such assignment, to the Holder, which new Warrants shall reflect the rights held by such Assignee and the Holder after giving effect to such assignment.  Upon the execution and delivery of appropriate assignment documentation and any other documentation reasonably requested by the Company in connection with such assignment, and the payment by the Assignee of the purchase price agreed to by the Holder and such Assignee, such Assignee shall be a holder of this Warrant shall have all of the rights and obligations of the Holder hereunder to the extent that such rights and obligations have been assigned by the Holder pursuant to the assignment documentation between the Holder and such Assignee, and the Holder shall be released from any obligations it may have hereunder to a corresponding extent.

ESCROW AGREEMENT

This ESCROW AGREEMENT (as the same may be amended or modified from time to time pursuant hereto, this “Agreement”) is made and entered into as of May 2, 2014, by and among Hotelmobi Inc., a Nevada corporation (“Hotelmobi”), Remark Media, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Remark”), and Roomlia, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Roomlia”, and together with Hotelmobi and Remark, sometimes referred to individually as a “Party” or collectively as the “Parties”), and Computershare Trust Company, N.A. (the “Escrow Agent”), and is agreed to and acknowledged by each of the stockholders of Hotelmobi listed on Schedule 3 hereto (each, a “Stockholder”, and together, the “Stockholders”).  For purposes of this Agreement, the “Stockholder Representatives” means each of Jim Ferguson and Michael Reichartz.

WHEREAS, the Parties have agreed to deposit in escrow certain securities and wish such deposit to be subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein.

NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing and of the mutual covenants hereinafter set forth, the parties hereto agree as follows:

1.           Appointment.  The Parties hereby appoint the Escrow Agent as their escrow agent for the purposes set forth herein, and the Escrow Agent hereby accepts such appointment under the terms and conditions set forth herein.
 
2.           Escrow Assets.
 
(a)           Remark agrees to deposit with the Escrow Agent One Hundred and Twenty Five Thousand (125,000) shares of Remark’s Common Stock (the “Escrow Assets”) on the date hereof.  The Escrow Agent shall hold the Escrow Assets as a book position registered in the name of Computershare Trust Company, N.A. as Escrow Agent for the benefit of the Stockholders.
 
(b)           Escrow Shares.
 
i.           During the term of this Agreement, each Stockholder shall have the right to exercise any voting rights with respect to any of the Escrow Shares attributable to such Stockholder pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement (as defined below). Each Stockholder shall direct the Escrow Agent in writing as to the exercise of any such voting rights, and the Escrow Agent shall comply, to the extent it is able to do so, with any such directions of such Stockholder. In the absence of such directions, the Escrow Agent shall not vote any of the shares comprising the Escrow Shares.
 
ii.          Any dividends paid with respect to the Escrow Assets shall be deemed part of the Escrow Assets and be delivered to the Escrow Agent to be held in a bank account and be deposited in one or more interest-bearing accounts to be maintained by the Escrow Agent in the name of the Escrow Agent at one or more of the banks jointly approved by Remark and at least one Stockholder Representative (each, an “Approved Bank”).  The deposit of dividends in any of the Approved Banks shall be deemed to be at the direction of the Parties.  At any time and from time to time, the Parties may direct Escrow Agent by written notice (i) to deposit the dividends with a specific Approved Bank, (ii) not to deposit any new dividend amount in any Approved Bank specified in the notice and/or (iii) to withdraw all or any of the dividends that may then be deposited with any Approved Bank specified in the notice.  With respect to any withdrawal notice, the Escrow Agent will endeavor to withdraw such amount specified in the notice as soon as reasonably practicable and the Parties acknowledge and agree that such specified amount remains at the sole risk of the Parties prior to and after such withdrawal.  Such withdrawn amounts shall be deposited with any Approved Bank specified in the notice, or in the absence of such specification, any Approved Bank.
 
iii.         In the event of any stock split, reverse stock split, stock dividend, recapitalization, reorganization, merger, consolidation, combination, exchange of shares, liquidation, spin-off or other similar change in capitalization or event, or any distribution to holders of the common stock of Remark, other than a regular cash dividend, the Escrow Assets under Section 2(a) above shall be appropriately adjusted on a pro rata basis.
 
 
1

 
 
3.           Disposition and Termination.  (a)   As soon as practicable (but no later than three Business Days) after the date that is the 12-month anniversary of the date of this Agreement (the “Escrow Termination Date”), the Escrow Agent shall release the remaining portion of the Escrow Assets less any Reserved Portion (as defined herein) to the Stockholders, unless otherwise instructed in a written instruction delivered in accordance with Section 3(f) hereof.  Any Reserved Portion shall continue to be held in escrow under this Agreement by the Escrow Agent until the claims contained in any Claim Notice(s) described in Section 3(b) below are finally resolved, even if such claims have not been finally resolved prior to the Escrow Termination Date.  After the Escrow Termination Date, the Escrow Agent shall only release all or any amount of the Reserved Portion to Remark or the Stockholders from the Escrow Assets pursuant to a written instruction delivered in accordance with Section 3(f) hereof.
 
(b)           Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, if on or before the Escrow Termination Date, the Escrow Agent has received from Remark a notice (a “Claim Notice”) specifying in reasonable detail the nature and basis for a claim for indemnification pursuant to the Merger Agreement and the dollar amount of the claim, or if such amount is unknown, Remark’s good faith reasonable estimate of the dollar amount of such claim, in each case also expressed as a number of shares of Remark common stock calculated by dividing such dollar amount by the Current Market Price (as defined herein) (the “Claimed Amount”), then the Escrow Agent shall continue to keep in escrow an amount of shares equal to the Claimed Amount set forth in such Claim Notice(s) (the “Reserved Portion”) until such Claimed Amount is resolved as provided herein.  For the avoidance of doubt, the preceding sentence shall survive the Escrow Termination Date.  In any Claim Notice, Remark shall, in reasonable detail to the extent possible, cite the section(s) of the Merger Agreement and facts and circumstances supporting its claim.
 
(c)           At the time of delivery of any Claim Notice to the Escrow Agent, a duplicate copy of such Claim Notice shall be delivered by Remark to the Stockholder Representatives in accordance with the notice provisions contained in the Merger Agreement.
 
(d)           Unless the Stockholder Representatives deliver to the Escrow Agent a written notice objecting in good faith to the creation of the Reserved Portion (or any amount thereof) or the claim contained in the Claim Notice (the “Contest Notice”) within twenty (20) calendar days after delivery of the relevant Claim Notice to the Stockholder Representatives pursuant to Section 3(c) hereof (the “Response Period”), the Escrow Agent shall, without further instructions and within three (3) Business Days after the expiration of the Response Period, deliver to Remark an amount of shares equal to the Claimed Amount (as expressed in dollars) divided by the Current Market Price on the date of such release.  If the Escrow Agent receives a Contest Notice within the Response Period, the Escrow Agent shall continue to hold in escrow any portion of the Claimed Amount objected to in the Contest Notice until release is otherwise authorized pursuant to Section 3(e) hereof.  If any Contest Notice includes an objection to only a portion of a Claimed Amount, the Escrow Agent shall promptly release to Remark from the Escrow Assets an amount of shares equal to the portion of the Claimed Amount in relation to which there is no objection (as expressed in dollars) divided by the Current Market Price on the date of such release.
 
(e)           If the Escrow Agent receives a Contest Notice within the Response Period in accordance with Section 3(d) hereof, the Escrow Agent shall make payment with respect any portion of the Claimed Amount objected to in the Contest Notice only in accordance with: (i) any joint written instructions executed by at least one Stockholder Representative and Remark; or (ii) a written notification from Remark of a final and non-appealable decision, order, judgment or decree of a court of competition jurisdiction or an arbitrator, which notification shall attach a copy of such final and non-appealable decision, order, judgment or decree (a “Final Order”).  The Escrow Agent shall be entitled to rely on any such joint written instructions or Final Order and upon receipt thereof shall promptly release that portion of the remaining Escrow Assets as instructed in such joint written instructions or Final Order.
 
(f)           Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, if the Escrow Agent receives joint written instructions from the Stockholder Representatives and Remark, or their respective successors or assigns, as to the disbursement of the Escrow Assets, the Escrow Agent shall disburse the Escrow Assets pursuant to such joint written instructions.  The Escrow Agent shall have no obligation to follow any directions set forth in any joint written instructions unless and until the Escrow Agent is satisfied, in its reasonable discretion, that the persons executing said joint written instructions are authorized to do so.
 
(g)           Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, if any Claimed Amount to be released at any time or under any circumstances exceeds the Current Market Price of the remaining Escrow Assets on the date of release, the Escrow Agent shall release the remaining portion of the Escrow Assets and shall have no liability or responsibility to the Parties for any deficiency.
 
 
2

 
 
(h)           Upon delivery of any and all remaining Escrow Assets by the Escrow Agent, this Agreement shall terminate, subject to the provisions of Section 7.
 
(i)            All releases of the Escrow Assets to the Stockholders shall be made in accordance with the ownership percentages listed on Schedule 3 hereto.
 
(j)            In all cases, the Current Market Price is to be provided by Remark when Escrow Assets are to be released by Escrow Agent.  “Current Market Price” means, in respect of any shares of Remark common stock on a specified date, (i) the closing price on such day on the principal stock exchange on which Remark common stock is then listed or admitted to trading, or quoted, as applicable, (ii) if no sale takes place on such day on any such exchange, the last reported closing price on such day as officially quoted on any such exchange, (iii) if Remark common stock is not then listed or admitted to trading on any stock exchange, the last reported closing bid price on such day in the over-the-counter market, as furnished by the OTC Markets Group, (iv) if such corporation at the time is engaged in the business of reporting such prices, as furnished by any similar firm then engaged in such business, or (v) if there is no such firm, as furnished by any member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority  (“FINRA”) selected mutually by Remark and the Stockholders or, if they cannot agree upon such selection, as selected by two such members of FINRA, one of which shall be selected by Remark and one of which shall be selected by the Stockholders.
 
4.           Escrow Agent.  (a)  The Escrow Agent shall have only those duties as are specifically and expressly provided herein, which shall be deemed purely ministerial in nature, and no other duties shall be implied.  The Escrow Agent shall neither be responsible for, nor chargeable with, knowledge of, nor have any requirements to comply with, the terms and conditions of any other agreement, instrument or document between the Parties, in connection herewith, if any, including without limitation the Merger Agreement, dated as of the date hereof, by and among Hotelmobi, Remark and Roomlia (the “Merger Agreement”), nor shall the Escrow Agent be required to determine if any person or entity has complied with any such  agreements, nor shall any additional obligations of the Escrow Agent be inferred from the terms of such agreements, even though reference thereto may be made in this Agreement.  In the event of any conflict between the terms and provisions of this Agreement, those of the Merger Agreement, any schedule or exhibit attached to this Agreement, or any other agreement among the Parties, the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall control only in connection with any matter related to the  Escrow Agent. The Escrow Agent may rely upon and shall not be liable for acting or refraining from acting upon any written notice, document, instruction or request furnished to it hereunder and reasonably believed by it to be genuine and to have been signed or presented by the proper Party or Parties without inquiry and without requiring substantiating evidence of any kind.  The Escrow Agent shall not be liable to any Party, any beneficiary or other person for refraining from acting upon any instruction setting forth, claiming, containing, objecting to, or related to the transfer or distribution of the Escrow Assets, or any portion thereof, unless such instruction shall have been delivered to the Escrow Agent in accordance with Section 10 below and the Escrow Agent has been able to satisfy any applicable security procedures as may be required hereunder and as set forth in Section 10.  The Escrow Agent shall be under no duty to inquire into or investigate the validity, accuracy or content of any such document, notice, instruction or request.  The Escrow Agent shall have no duty to solicit any payments which may be due it or the Escrow Assets nor shall the Escrow Agent have any duty or obligation to confirm or verify the accuracy or correctness of any amounts deposited with it hereunder.
 
(b)           The Escrow Agent shall not be liable for any action taken, suffered or omitted to be taken by it except to the extent that a final adjudication of a court of competent jurisdiction determines that the Escrow Agent's gross negligence or willful misconduct was the primary cause of any loss to either Party.  The Escrow Agent may execute any of its powers and perform any of its duties hereunder directly or through affiliates or agents.  The Escrow Agent may consult with counsel, accountants and other skilled persons to be selected and retained by it.  The Escrow Agent shall not be liable for any action taken, suffered or omitted to be taken by it in accordance with, or in reasonable reliance upon, the advice or opinion of any such counsel, accountants or other skilled persons.  In the event that the Escrow Agent shall be uncertain or believe there is some ambiguity as to its duties or rights hereunder or shall receive instructions, claims or demands from any Party hereto which, in its opinion, conflict with any of the provisions of this Agreement, it shall be entitled to refrain from taking any action and its sole obligation shall be to keep safely all property held in escrow until it shall be given a direction in writing by the Parties which eliminates such ambiguity or uncertainty to the satisfaction of Escrow Agent or by a final and non-appealable order or judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction.  The Parties agree to pursue any redress or recourse in connection with any dispute without making the Escrow Agent a party to the same.
 
 
3

 
 
5.            Succession.  (a)  The Escrow Agent may resign and be discharged from its duties or obligations hereunder by giving thirty (30) days advance notice in writing of such resignation to the Parties specifying a date when such resignation shall take effect.  If the Parties have failed to appoint a successor escrow agent prior to the expiration of thirty (30) days following receipt of the notice of resignation, the Escrow Agent may petition any court of competent jurisdiction for the appointment of a successor escrow agent within relevant jurisdiction or for other appropriate relief, and any such resulting appointment shall be binding upon all of the Parties hereto.  Escrow Agent’s sole responsibility after such thirty (30) day notice period expires shall be to hold the Escrow Assets (without any obligation to reinvest the same) and to deliver the same to a designated substitute escrow agent, if any, or in accordance with the directions of a final order or judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction, at which time of delivery Escrow Agent’s obligations hereunder shall cease and terminate, subject to the provisions of Section 7 hereunder.  In accordance with Section 7 below, the Escrow Agent shall have the right to withhold an amount of shares equal to any dollar amount due and owing to the Escrow Agent, plus any costs and expenses the Escrow Agent shall reasonably believe may be incurred by the Escrow Agent in connection with the termination of the Agreement divided by the Current Market Price.
 
(b)           The Parties may remove the Escrow Agent by furnishing to the Escrow Agent a joint written notice of its removal along with payment of all fees and expenses to which it is entitled through the date of termination.  Such removal shall be effective on the date specified in such written notice, which shall be no earlier thirty (30) days after the delivery of such notice, or upon the earlier appointment of a successor by the Parties.
 
(c)           Any entity into which the Escrow Agent may be merged or converted or with which it may be consolidated, or any entity to which all or substantially all the escrow business may be transferred, shall be the Escrow Agent under this Agreement without further act.
 
6.            Compensation and Reimbursement. The Escrow Agent shall be entitled to compensation for its services under this agreement as Escrow Agent and for reimbursement for its reasonable out-of-pocket costs and expenses, in the amounts and payable as set forth on Schedule 2.  All amounts owing under the foregoing sentence shall be paid by Remark.  The Escrow Agent shall also be entitled to payment of any amounts to which the Escrow Agent is entitled under the indemnification provisions contained herein as set forth in Section 7.
 
7.            Indemnity. (a) Subject to Section 7(c) below, Escrow Agent shall be liable for any losses, damages, claims, liabilities, penalties, judgments, settlements, actions, suits, proceedings, litigations, investigations, costs or expenses (including without limitation, reasonable fees and expenses of outside counsel and experts and their staffs and reasonable expenses of document location, duplication and shipment) (collectively “Losses”) only to the extent such Losses are determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be a result of Escrow Agent’s gross negligence or willful misconduct; provided, however, that any liability of the Escrow Agent will be limited in the aggregate to the value of the Escrow Assets initially deposited with the Escrow Agent.
 
(b) The Parties shall jointly and severally indemnify and hold Escrow Agent harmless from and against, and Escrow Agent shall not be responsible for, any and all Losses arising out of or attributable to Escrow Agent’s duties under this Agreement or this appointment, including the reasonable costs and expenses of defending itself against any Losses or enforcing this Agreement, except to the extent of liability described in Section 7(a) above.

(c) Without limiting the Parties’ indemnification obligations set forth in Section 7(b) above, neither the Parties nor the Escrow Agent shall be liable for any incidental, indirect, special or consequential damages of any nature whatsoever, including, but not limited to, loss of anticipated profits, occasioned by a breach of any provision of this Agreement even if apprised of the possibility of such damages.

(d) This Section 7 shall survive termination of this Agreement or the resignation, replacement or removal of the Escrow Agent for any reason.

8.            Patriot Act Disclosure/Taxpayer Identification Numbers/Tax Reporting.
 
(a)           Patriot Act Disclosure.  Section 326 of the Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001 (“USA PATRIOT Act”) requires the Escrow Agent to implement reasonable procedures to verify the identity of any person that opens a new account with it.  Accordingly, the Parties acknowledge that Section 326 of the USA PATRIOT Act and the Escrow Agent’s identity verification procedures require the Escrow Agent to obtain information which may be used to confirm the Parties identity including without limitation name, address and organizational documents (“identifying information”). The Parties agree to provide the Escrow Agent with and consent to the Escrow Agent obtaining from third parties any such identifying information required as a condition of opening an account with or using any service provided by the Escrow Agent.
 
 
4

 
 
(b)           Certification and Tax Reporting. The Parties, if applicable, have provided the Escrow Agent with their respective fully executed Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) Form W-8, or W-9 and/or other required documentation. All interest or other income earned under this Agreement shall be allocated to Remark and reported, as and to the extent required by law, by the Escrow Agent to the IRS, or any other taxing authority, on IRS Form 1099 or 1042S (or other appropriate form) as income earned from the Escrow Assets by Remark whether or not said income has been distributed during such year. Escrow Agent shall withhold any taxes it deems appropriate in the absence of proper tax documentation or as required by law, and shall remit such taxes to the appropriate authorities. The Parties hereby represent and warrant to the Escrow Agent that (i) there is no sale or transfer of an United States Real Property Interest as defined under IRC Section 897(c) in the underlying transaction giving rise to this Agreement; and (ii) such underlying transaction does not constitute an installment sale requiring any tax reporting or withholding of imputed interest or original issue discount to the IRS or other taxing authority.
 
9.             Notices. All communications hereunder shall be in writing and except for communications from the Parties setting forth, claiming, containing, objecting to, or in any way related to the full or partial transfer or distribution of the Escrow Assets, including but not limited to transfer instructions (all of which shall be specifically governed by Section 10 below), shall be deemed to be duly given after it has been delivered:

THIS WARRANT AND THE SECURITIES ISSUABLE UPON EXERCISE HEREOF HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “SECURITIES ACT”), OR UNDER ANY STATE SECURITIES LAW AND, ACCORDINGLY, MAY NOT BE PLEDGED, SOLD, ASSIGNED OR TRANSFERRED IN THE ABSENCE OF AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT WITH RESPECT THERETO UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT AND ANY APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAW, OR UNLESS THE COMPANY RECEIVES AN OPINION OF COUNSEL, SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY, THAT SUCH REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED.
 
REMARK MEDIA, INC.
 

 
WARRANT TO PURCHASE COMMON STOCK
 
May 2, 2014
 
FOR VALUE RECEIVED, REMARK MEDIA, INC., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), hereby certifies that, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, [INDIVIDUAL HOLDER] (the “Holder”), its designees or permitted assigns, is entitled to purchase from the Company _________________ (_________) fully paid and nonassessable shares (as adjusted pursuant to the terms hereof, the “Warrant Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, $0.001 par value per share (the “Common Stock”), at a price per Warrant Share of [$8.00] [$12.00] (the “Warrant Price”), payable in accordance with Section 1(c) hereof; provided, however, that the Holder’s right to purchase the Warrant Shares is subject to those vesting provisions set forth in Section 1(a) hereof.
 
This Warrant is issued by the Company in connection with that certain Merger Agreement, dated as of May 2, 2014 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among the Company, Roomlia, Inc. (“Merger Sub”) and Hotelmobi, Inc. (“Hotelmobi”), pursuant to which Hotelmobi has agreed to merge with and into Merger Sub.  Except as otherwise defined herein, capitalized terms in this Warrant shall have the meanings set forth in the Merger Agreement.
 
This Warrant is issued subject to the following terms and conditions:
 
1.             Vesting and Exercise of Warrants, Issuance of Certificates.
 
(a)            The Warrant Shares shall vest and this Warrant shall become exercisable for the purchase thereof as follows: 12.5% at the end of each fiscal quarter of the Company beginning on June 30, 2014, provided that [INDIVIDUAL HOLDER] is employed by the Company or any of its Affiliates on the vesting date or was terminated prior to such vesting date other than for Cause.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if [INDIVIDUAL HOLDER] is employed by the Company or any of its Affiliates, or was terminated other than for Cause prior to, the date a Change of Control of the Company occurs, any unvested portion of this Warrant shall be deemed to vest immediately prior to the occurrence of such Change of Control of the Company.  The Holder may exercise this Warrant at any time or from time to time, for all or any part of the vested Warrant Shares (but not for a fraction of a share) that may be purchased hereunder, as that number may be adjusted pursuant to Section 3 below, prior to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the five (5) year anniversary of the date hereof (the “Expiration Date”).  The Company agrees that the Warrant Shares purchased under this Warrant shall be and are deemed to be issued to the Holder as the record owner of such Warrant Shares as of the close of business on the date on which this Warrant shall have been surrendered, properly endorsed, the completed and executed Form of Subscription in the form attached hereto delivered, and payment made for such Warrant Shares made in accordance with Section 1(c) below (each, a “Date of Exercise”).  Certificates for the Warrant Shares so purchased, together with any other securities or property to which the Holder is entitled upon such exercise, shall be delivered to the Holder by the Company at the Company’s expense as soon as practicable after the rights represented by this Warrant have been so exercised, but in any event not later than ten (10) Business Days following the Date of Exercise.  In case of a purchase of less than all the Warrant Shares that may be purchased under this Warrant, the Company shall cancel this Warrant and execute and deliver to the Holder within a reasonable time a new Warrant or Warrants of like tenor for the balance of the Warrant Shares purchasable under the Warrant surrendered upon such purchase.  Each stock certificate so delivered shall be registered in the name of the Holder and issued with a legend in substantially the form of the legend placed on the front of this Warrant.
 
 
 

 
 
(b)            The Company’s obligations to issue and deliver Warrant Shares in accordance with the terms hereof are absolute and unconditional, irrespective of any action or inaction by the Holder to enforce the same.  Nothing herein shall limit the Holder’s right to pursue any other remedies available to it hereunder, at law or in equity including, without limitation, a decree of specific performance and/or injunctive relief with respect to the Company’s failure to timely deliver certificates representing shares of Common Stock upon exercise of this Warrant as required pursuant to the terms hereof.
 
(c)            The Holder shall pay the Warrant Price by certified or official bank check payable to the order of, or wire transfer of immediately available funds to, the Company, or by other means determined to be acceptable by the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”), in its sole discretion.
 
(d)            For purposes of this Warrant, “Change of Control” means (i) the sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company to a non-Affiliate of the Company or (ii) Kai-Shing Tao no longer serves as the Chairman of the Board of the Company.
 
2.             Shares to be Fully Paid; Reservation of Shares.  The Company covenants and agrees that all Warrant Shares, will, upon issuance and payment of the Warrant Price, be duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable, and free of all preemptive rights, liens and encumbrances, except for restrictions on transfer provided for herein.  The Company shall at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized and unissued Common Stock, solely for the purpose of providing for the exercise of the rights to purchase all Warrant Shares granted pursuant to this Warrant, such number of shares of Common Stock as shall, from time to time, be sufficient therefor.
 
3.             Adjustment of Warrant Price and Number of Shares.  The Warrant Price and the total number of Warrant Shares shall be subject to adjustment from time to time upon the occurrence of certain events described in this Section 3.
 
 
2

 
 
(a)            Merger, Sale of Assets, Etc.  If at any time while this Warrant, or any portion hereof, is outstanding and unexpired there shall be (i) a reorganization (other than a combination, reclassification, exchange or subdivision of shares otherwise provided for herein), (ii) a merger or consolidation of the Company with or into another corporation, partnership, limited liability company, or other entity in which the Company is not the surviving entity, or a merger in which the Company is the surviving entity but the shares of the Company’s capital stock outstanding immediately prior to the merger are converted by virtue of the merger into other property, whether in the form of securities, cash, or otherwise, or (iii) a sale or transfer of the Company’s properties and assets as, or substantially as, an entirety to any other person, then, as a part of such reorganization, merger, consolidation, sale or transfer, lawful provision shall be made so that the Holder of this Warrant shall thereafter be entitled to receive upon exercise of this Warrant, during the period specified herein and upon payment of the Warrant Price, the number of shares of stock or other securities or property of the successor corporation resulting from such reorganization, merger, consolidation, sale or transfer that a holder of the Warrant Shares deliverable upon exercise of this Warrant would have been entitled to receive in such reorganization, consolidation, merger, sale or transfer if this Warrant had been exercised immediately before such reorganization, merger, consolidation, sale or transfer, all subject to further adjustment as provided in this Section 3.  If the per share consideration payable to the Holder for securities in connection with any such transaction is in a form other than cash or marketable securities, then the value of such consideration shall be determined in good faith by the Board.  In all events, appropriate adjustment (as determined in good faith by the Board) shall be made in the application of the provisions of this Warrant with respect to the rights and interests of the Holder after the transaction, to the end that the provisions of this Warrant shall be applicable after that event, as near as reasonably may be, in relation to any shares or other property deliverable after that event upon exercise of this Warrant.
 
(b)            Reclassification, Etc.  If the Company, at any time while this Warrant or any portion hereof remains outstanding and unexpired, by reclassification of securities or otherwise, shall change any of the securities as to which purchase rights under this Warrant exist into the same or a different number of securities of any other class or classes, this Warrant shall thereafter represent the right to acquire such number and kind of securities as would have been issuable as the result of such change with respect to the securities that were subject to the purchase rights under this Warrant immediately prior to such reclassification or other change and the Warrant Price shall be appropriately adjusted, all subject to further adjustment as provided in this Section 3.
