NOTICE OF SPECIAL MEETING OF SHAREHOLDERS
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that a special meeting of shareholders (the “Special Meeting”) of Callon Petroleum Company (“Callon,” the “Company,” “our,” “we” or “us”) will be held on November 3, 2021 at 9:00 a.m. Central Daylight Time in the Conversation Salon room of the Hotel ZaZa Memorial City, located at 9787 Katy Freeway in Houston, Texas, for the purpose of considering and taking the following action, which is described in the accompanying Proxy Statement:
To vote, for purposes of complying with Rule 312.03(b) of the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) Listed Company Manual, upon a proposal (the “Issuance Proposal”) to approve the issuance to Chambers Investments, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Kimmeridge”), of 5,512,623 shares of common stock, par value $0.01, of the Company (the “Common Stock” and such shares to be issued the “New Common Stock”).
Callon will transact no other business at the Special Meeting, except such business as may properly be brought before the Special Meeting or any adjournments or postponements thereof by or at the direction of the Callon board of directors (the “Board”) in accordance with Callon’s bylaws.
The Board has unanimously determined that the issuance to Kimmeridge of the New Common Stock is in the best interests of Callon and its shareholders. The Board unanimously recommends that you vote “FOR” the Issuance Proposal.
Only shareholders of record as of the close of business on October 4, 2021 (the “Record Date”) are entitled to receive notice of and to vote at the Special Meeting.
On August 3, 2021, we entered into an Exchange Agreement with Kimmeridge, pursuant to which we agreed to issue and deliver to Kimmeridge, subject to shareholder approval, the New Common Stock in exchange for $197.0 million aggregate principal amount of the Company’s 9.00% Second Lien Senior Secured Notes due 2025 held by Kimmeridge, including in respect of any accrued and unpaid interest (the “Exchange Agreement”). The Exchange Agreement is described in the accompanying Proxy Statement and is attached thereto as Annex A. We are seeking shareholder approval of the Issuance Proposal in order to comply with Rule 312.03(b) of the NYSE Listed Company Manual (“Rule 312.03(b)”). Under Rule 312.03(b), shareholder approval is required prior to any issuance or sale of common stock in any transaction or series of related transactions (i) to a substantial security holder of the company (a “Related Party”) if the number of shares of common stock to be issued exceeds either 1% of the number of shares of common stock or 1% of the voting power outstanding before the issuance or (ii) when a Related Party has a 5% or greater interest, directly or indirectly, in the company or in the consideration to be paid in the transaction or series of related transactions, and the present or potential issuance of common stock could result in an issuance that exceeds either 5% of the number of shares of common stock or 5% of the voting power outstanding before the issuance. As described further in the accompanying Proxy Statement, due to Kimmeridge’s beneficial ownership of approximately 11.2% of our Common Stock (as of October 4, 2021), Kimmeridge is a Related Party for purposes of Rule 312.03(b).
Pursuant to the Exchange Agreement, Kimmeridge agreed to vote all shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by it as of the Record Date in favor of the Issuance Proposal. In connection with the execution of the Exchange Agreement, each of the Company’s executive officers and directors also entered into a Voting Agreement, dated as of the date of the Exchange Agreement (the “Voting Agreement”). On the terms and conditions set forth in the Voting Agreement, our executive officers and directors agreed to vote all of the shares of Common Stock over which they have voting power (representing in the aggregate approximately 2% of the Company’s total outstanding voting power) in favor of the Issuance Proposal. The Voting Agreement is described in the accompanying Proxy Statement and is attached thereto as Annex B.



Additionally, pursuant to those certain purchase and sale agreements, dated as of August 3, 2021, between the Company, Callon Petroleum Operating Company and Primexx Resource Development, LLC and BPP Acquisition, LLC, respectively (collectively, “Primexx” and such transactions contemplated by such purchase and sale agreements, the “Primexx Transaction”), Primexx agreed to vote all shares of Common Stock over which they have voting power (which, as of the Record Date, was approximately 8.8 million shares) in favor of the Issuance Proposal. In the aggregate, the foregoing voting agreements represent approximately 16 million, or approximately 30%, of the shares outstanding on the Record Date.
It is important that your shares be represented at the Special Meeting, regardless of the number of shares you may hold. Whether or not you plan to attend, please vote using the Internet, by telephone or by mail, in each case by following the instructions in the accompanying Proxy Statement. This will not prevent you from voting your shares in person at the Special Meeting if you are present.
By Order of the Board of Directors,

Callon’s board of directors (the “Board”) is soliciting proxies from shareholders entitled to vote at the Special Meeting. By use of the Proxy Card, you can vote even if you do not attend the Special Meeting. This Proxy Statement describes the matter on which you are being asked to vote and provides information on this matter so that you can make an informed decision. These proxy materials are being distributed and/or made available to shareholders on or about October 5, 2021.
DATE, TIME AND PLACE OF THE SPECIAL MEETING
We will hold the Special Meeting on November 3, 2021, at 9:00 a.m. Central Daylight Time in the Conversation Salon room of the Hotel ZaZa Memorial City, located at 9787 Katy Freeway in Houston, Texas.
The Board has fixed the close of business on October 4, 2021, as the record date (the “Record Date”) for the determination of shareholders entitled to notice of and to vote at the Special Meeting. Each shareholder will be entitled to one vote for each share of Common Stock held as of the Record Date on the matter to come before the Special Meeting and may vote in person at the Special Meeting, via Internet, by telephone or by proxy authorized in writing.
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Q:     What is the purpose of the Special Meeting?
A:    At the Special Meeting, shareholders will act upon a proposal (the “Issuance Proposal”) to approve the issuance to Chambers Investments, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Kimmeridge”), of Common Stock of the Company. On August 3, 2021, we entered into an Exchange Agreement with Kimmeridge (the “Exchange Agreement”), pursuant to which we agreed to issue and deliver to Kimmeridge, subject to shareholder approval, 5,512,623 shares of Common Stock (such shares to be issued, the “New Common Stock”) in exchange for $197.0 million in aggregate principal amount of the Company’s 9.00% Second Lien Senior Secured Notes due 2025 (the “Second Lien Notes”) held by Kimmeridge, including in respect of any accrued and unpaid interest. Please see page 12 for information on the exchange valuation. The Exchange Agreement is attached hereto as Annex A.
As described in more detail below, in accordance with the applicable NYSE rules, the Company is calling the Special Meeting to consider and vote on the Issuance Proposal.
Q:     Who is Kimmeridge?

A:    Chambers Investments, LLC is a private investment vehicle managed by Kimmeridge Energy Management Company, LLC (“Kimmeridge EMC”), an energy private equity firm focused on making direct investments in unconventional oil and gas assets in the United States. Kimmeridge is the holder of $197.0 million in aggregate principal amount of the Company’s Second Lien Notes, issued pursuant to the Indenture, dated as of September 30, 2020 (the “Second Lien Notes Indenture”), by and among the Company, the subsidiary guarantors named therein and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee and collateral agent. As of October 4, 2021, Kimmeridge EMC beneficially owned 6,188,157 shares of Common Stock of the Company. Kimmeridge’s current holdings in the Company’s Second Lien Notes and all but 602,503 shares of Common Stock were obtained as part of concurrent transactions agreed to in September 2020 whereby Kimmeridge purchased Second Lien Notes, warrants for Common Stock, and an overriding royalty interest
1


in substantially all Callon-operated oil and gas leaseholds as of the effective date of such transactions. Kimmeridge’s remaining shares of Common Stock were purchased in the open market. It is headquartered at 412 West 15th Street, 11th Floor, New York, NY 10011. Neither Kimmeridge nor any of its affiliated entities has Board representation or any other governance rights with respect to the Company.
Q:     Why is shareholder approval of the issuance of the New Common Stock required?
A:    We are seeking shareholder approval of the Issuance Proposal in order to comply with Rule 312.03(b) of the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) Listed Company Manual (“Rule 312.03(b)”). Under Rule 312.03(b), shareholder approval is required prior to any issuance or sale of common stock in any transaction or series of related transactions (i) to a substantial security holder of the company (a “Related Party”) if the number of shares of common stock to be issued exceeds either 1% of the number of shares of common stock or 1% of the voting power outstanding before the issuance or (ii) when a Related Party has a 5% or greater interest, directly or indirectly, in the company or in the consideration to be paid in the transaction or series of related transactions, and the present or potential issuance of common stock could result in an issuance that exceeds either 5% of the number of shares of common stock or 5% of the voting power outstanding before the issuance. Under Rule 312.04(e) of the NYSE Listed Company Manual (“Rule 312.04(e)”), a shareholder is presumed to be a “substantial security holder” (and therefore, a “Related Party” for purposes of Rule 312.03(b)) if it owns either 5% or more of the number of shares of common stock or 5% or more of the voting power outstanding of a NYSE listed company.
    Due to Kimmeridge’s beneficial ownership of approximately 11.2% of our outstanding shares of Common Stock as of October 4, 2021, Kimmeridge is a Related Party for purposes of Rule 312.03(b). Upon consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Exchange Agreement, the Company would issue to Kimmeridge New Common Stock equal to approximately 10.0% of the Company’s then-outstanding Common Stock. As a result, the issuance of the New Common Stock pursuant to the Exchange Agreement is subject to shareholder approval for purposes of complying with Rule 312.03(b).
Q:     What is the effect of shareholder approval?
A:    Upon shareholder approval of the Issuance Proposal and the satisfaction of the other closing conditions contained in the Exchange Agreement (as described below), the transactions contemplated by the Exchange Agreement would be consummated. As a result of the issuance of the New Common Stock pursuant to the Exchange Agreement, Kimmeridge would hold, in the aggregate, approximately 19.3% of our issued and outstanding Common Stock and the Company would acquire and then cancel $197.0 million of Second Lien Notes.
    The transactions contemplated by the Exchange Agreement are intended to strengthen the Company’s financial position by accelerating deleveraging initiatives and reducing cash interest expense by approximately $20 million per year. In addition, the transactions will improve the standing of shareholders in the capital structure of the Company and enhance Callon’s access to debt capital markets, providing the opportunity for reductions in the corporate cost of capital.
Q:     What will happen if the Company’s shareholders do not approve the Issuance Proposal?
A:    If we do not obtain the requisite shareholder approval of the Issuance Proposal at the Special Meeting, the transactions contemplated by the Exchange Agreement will not be consummated. The New Common Stock will not be issued to Kimmeridge and the $197.0 million of Second Lien Notes owed by Kimmeridge will remain outstanding.
Q:    Are there conditions to the closing of the transactions pursuant to the Exchange Agreement?
A:    Yes. The closing of the transactions pursuant to the Exchange Agreement is subject to various closing conditions, including (i) for purposes of complying with Rule 312.03(b) of the NYSE Listed Company
2


Manual, approval of the Company’s shareholders of the issuance of New Common Stock to Kimmeridge, (ii) the closing of the Company’s previously announced acquisitions of certain producing oil and gas properties and undeveloped acreage in the Delaware Basin from Primexx (the “Primexx Transaction”), which closing occurred on October 1, 2021, (iii) approval by the NYSE of the listing of the New Common Stock, (iv) the accuracy of each party’s representations and warranties, subject to certain materiality qualifiers and (v) the absence of any injunctions or orders preventing the Exchange.
    If any of these conditions are not satisfied or waived, the transactions pursuant to the Exchange Agreement will not close and, as a result, (i) the New Common Stock will not be issued to Kimmeridge and (ii) the $197.0 million of Second Lien Notes owned by Kimmeridge will remain outstanding.
Q:     How important is my vote?

A:     Your vote “FOR” the Issuance Proposal is very important and you are encouraged to submit a proxy as soon as possible. The transactions contemplated by the Exchange Agreement cannot be completed without approval of the Issuance Proposal by the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the votes cast with regard to the Issuance Proposal at the Special Meeting.

Q:     How does the Board recommend that I vote?
A:    The Board has unanimously determined that the issuance to Kimmeridge of the New Common Stock is in the best interests of Callon and its shareholders. The Board unanimously recommends that you vote “FOR” the Issuance Proposal.
Q:    When and where will the meeting take place?
A:    The Special Meeting will be held on November 3, 2021, at 9:00 a.m. Central Daylight Time in the Conversation Salon room of the Hotel ZaZa Memorial City, located at 9787 Katy Freeway in Houston, Texas. You may register and attend the Special Meeting by following the instructions provided under the question “How do I attend the Special Meeting?”.
Q:     Who may vote at the Special Meeting?
A:    You may vote all of the shares of Common Stock that you owned at the close of business on the Record Date. On the Record Date, we had 55,132,150 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding and entitled to be voted at the Special Meeting. You may cast one vote for each share of Common Stock held by you on the Record Date on the Issuance Proposal.
Q:     How do I attend the Special Meeting?
A:    If you wish to attend the Special Meeting in person, you must present valid, government-issued picture identification. If your shares are held in the name of a bank, broker or other nominee and you plan to attend the Special Meeting, in order to be admitted you must present proof of your beneficial ownership of the Common Stock, such as a bank or brokerage account statement, or copy of your Voting Instruction Form or Proxy Card, indicating that you owned shares of our Common Stock at the close of business on the Record Date.
    For safety and security reasons, no cameras, recording equipment, cellular telephones, electronic devices, large bags, briefcases or packages will be permitted in the Special Meeting. No banners, signs, firearms or weapons will be allowed in the meeting room. We reserve the right to inspect all items entering the meeting room.

Q:     What is the difference between a shareholder of record and a beneficial owner?
A:    Shareholder of Record: If your shares of Common Stock are registered directly in your name with Callon’s transfer agent, American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC, you are considered, with respect to those shares, to be the “shareholder of record.”
    Beneficial Owner: If your shares of Common Stock are held by a nominee, you are considered the “beneficial owner” of shares held in “street name.” The Proxy Card has been forwarded to you by your nominee who is considered, with respect to those shares, to be the “shareholder of record.” As the beneficial owner, you have the right to direct your nominee on how to vote your shares by following their instructions for voting by telephone or on the Internet or, if you specifically request a copy of the printed materials, you may use the Proxy Card included in such materials.
Q:     How do I obtain electronic access to the proxy materials?
A:    This Proxy Statement is available to shareholders free of charge at www.viewproxy.com/CallonPetroleum/2021SM. If you hold your shares in street name, you may be able to elect to receive future annual reports or proxy statements electronically. For information regarding electronic delivery you should contact your brokerage firm, bank, trustee or other agent (each, a “nominee”).

Q:     How do I vote?
A:    Shareholder of Record: If you are a shareholder of record, there are four ways to vote:
By Attending the Special Meeting. You may vote in person at the Special Meeting by requesting a ballot when you arrive. You must bring valid picture identification such as a driver’s license or passport and provide proof of stock ownership as of the Record Date.
Via the Internet. You can vote via the Internet by going to the website address provided on your Proxy Card. You will need to use the control number appearing on your Proxy Card to vote via the Internet.

    Beneficial Owners: If you are a beneficial owner of shares held in “street name,” there are four ways to vote:
By Attending the Special Meeting. You must obtain a “legal proxy” from the organization that holds your shares. A legal proxy is a written document that will authorize you to vote your shares held in “street name” at the Special Meeting. Please contact your nominee for instructions regarding obtaining a legal proxy. You must also bring valid picture identification such as a driver’s license or passport and provide proof of stock ownership as of the Record Date.
Via the Internet. You can vote via the Internet by going to the website address provided on your Proxy Card. You will need to use the control number appearing on your Proxy Card to vote via the Internet. The availability of Internet voting may depend on the voting process of your nominee.

Internet and telephone voting for shareholders will be available 24 hours a day, and will close at 11:59 p.m., Central Daylight Time, on November 2, 2021. Even if you plan to attend the Special Meeting, the Company recommends that you vote your shares in advance as described above so that your vote will be counted if you later decide not to attend the Special Meeting.
Q:     How do I vote shares of Callon Common Stock held in Callon’s 401(k) plan?

A.     If your shares of Callon Common Stock are held in Callon’s Employee Savings and Protection Plan (“Callon’s 401(k) plan”), you will receive an email from the plan administrator with voting instructions. The trustee of Callon’s 401(k) plan will vote your shares of Callon Common Stock in accordance with your directions.

If you do not timely direct the trustee how to vote your shares in the Callon 401(k) plan, or if you do not direct the trustee, the trustee of Callon’s 401(k) plan will vote your shares of Callon Common Stock in proportion to the voting directions received from all plan participants who properly vote. Please note that votes for shares held in Callon’s 401(k) plan have an earlier voting deadline. Please review the instructions for the date by which your voting directions must be received in order for your shares of Callon Common Stock to be voted as you direct.

In the case of internet or telephone voting, you should have your voting instructions in hand until you have completed the voting process.

Please note that no votes will be accepted at the Special Meeting in respect of shares of Callon Common Stock held in Callon’s 401(k) plan and that all such votes must be voted prior to the Callon Special Meeting.

Q:     What constitutes a quorum, and why is a quorum required?
A:    Under our Amended and Restated Bylaws, we are required to have a quorum of shareholders present for the Issuance Proposal to be voted at the Special Meeting. The presence at the Special Meeting, in person or by proxy, of the holders of a majority of the stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote as of the Record Date will constitute a quorum, permitting us to conduct the business of the Special Meeting. Proxies received but marked as abstentions as well as broker non-votes (as described below), if any, will be included in the calculation of the number of shares considered to be present at the Special Meeting for quorum purposes. If we do not have a quorum present or represented, then the Chairman of the Special Meeting or the shareholders present or represented by proxy and entitled to vote at the Special Meeting may adjourn the meeting from time to time, as authorized by our Amended and Restated Bylaws, until a quorum is present.
Q:     How many votes are needed to approve the Issuance Proposal?
A:    Approval of the Issuance Proposal requires the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the votes cast with regard to the Issuance Proposal at the Special Meeting, if a quorum is present. Abstentions and broker non-votes will each be counted as present for purposes of determining the presence of a quorum but
5


will not be included in determining the number of votes cast and will have no effect upon the outcome of the vote on the Issuance Proposal.
    Pursuant to the Exchange Agreement, Kimmeridge has agreed to vote all shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by it as of the Record Date in favor of the Issuance Proposal. In connection with the execution of the Exchange Agreement, each of the Company’s executive officers and directors also entered into a Voting Agreement, dated as of the date of the Exchange Agreement (the “Voting Agreement”). On the terms and conditions set forth in the Voting Agreement, our executive officers and directors agreed to vote all of the shares of Common Stock over which they have voting power (representing in the aggregate approximately 2% of the Company’s total outstanding voting power as of October 4, 2021) in favor of the Issuance Proposal. The Voting Agreement is attached hereto as Annex B.
    Additionally, pursuant to those certain purchase and sale agreements, dated as of August 3, 2021, between the Company and Callon Petroleum Operating Company and Primexx Resource Development LLC and BPP Acquisition, LLC, respectively (collectively, “Primexx”) executed in connection with the Primexx Transaction, Primexx has agreed to vote shares of Common Stock over which they have voting power (which, as of the Record Date, was approximately 8.8 million shares) in favor of the Issuance Proposal. In the aggregate, the foregoing voting agreements represent approximately 16 million, or approximately 30%, of the shares outstanding on the Record Date.
Q:     What if I sign and return my proxy without making any selections?
A:    If you sign and return your Proxy Card without making any selections, your shares will be voted “FOR” the Issuance Proposal.
Q:     What if I am a beneficial owner and I do not give the nominee voting instructions?
A:    If you are a beneficial owner and your shares are held in the name of a broker or other nominee, such broker or nominee is bound by the rules of the NYSE regarding whether or not it can exercise discretionary voting power for any particular proposal if the broker has not received voting instructions from you. Brokers have discretionary authority to vote shares for which their customers do not provide voting instructions on certain “routine” matters. A broker non-vote occurs when a nominee who holds shares for another does not vote on a particular item because the nominee does not have discretionary voting authority for that item and has not received instructions from the beneficial owner of the shares. The Issuance Proposal is not considered a “routine” matter; accordingly, if you hold your shares of Common Stock through a broker or other nominee, and you return your voting instruction card without providing voting instructions, your nominee will not have discretionary authority to vote your shares of Common Stock.
Q:     Can I change my vote after I have delivered my Proxy Card?
A:    Yes. You may revoke your Proxy Card at any time before its exercise. You may also revoke your proxy by (i) voting in person at the Special Meeting, (ii) delivering to the Corporate Secretary (at our principal executive offices in Houston, Texas) a revocation of proxy or (iii) executing a new proxy bearing a later date. If you are a beneficial owner, you must contact your nominee to change your vote or obtain a proxy to vote your shares if you wish to cast your vote in person at the Special Meeting.
Q:     If I plan to attend the Special Meeting, should I still vote by proxy?
A:    Yes. Casting your vote in advance does not affect your right to attend the Special Meeting.
    If you vote in advance and also attend the Special Meeting, you do not need to vote again at the Special Meeting unless you want to change your vote. Written ballots will be available at the Special Meeting for shareholders of record.
6


Q:     What happens if I sell or otherwise transfer my shares of Common Stock before the Special Meeting?
A:     The Record Date is prior to the date of the Special Meeting. If you sell or otherwise transfer your shares of Common Stock after the Record Date but before the Special Meeting, unless special arrangements are made between you and the person to whom you transfer your shares of Common Stock (such as provision of a proxy), you will retain your right to vote such shares at the Special Meeting but will otherwise transfer ownership of and the economic interest in your shares of Common Stock.

Q:     Will any other business be conducted at the Special Meeting?
A:    Callon will transact no other business at the Special Meeting, except such business as may properly be brought before the Special Meeting or any adjournments or postponements thereof by or at the direction of the Board in accordance with Callon’s bylaws.
Q:     Where can I find voting results of the Special Meeting?
A:    We will announce the results for the proposals voted upon at the Special Meeting and publish final detailed voting results in a Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) within four business days after the Special Meeting.
Q:     Am I entitled to dissenter’s rights?
A:    No. Delaware General Corporation Law (the “DGCL”) does not provide for dissenter’s rights in connection with the Issuance Proposal being voted on at the Special Meeting.
Q:     Am I entitled to preemptive rights?
A:    No. Under the DGCL and our Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, shareholders are not entitled to any preemptive rights in connection with the issuance of the New Common Stock to Kimmeridge.

All statements, other than statements of historical facts, included in this Proxy Statement and the information incorporated by reference that address activities, events or developments that we expect or anticipate will or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements, including such things as:
our oil and natural gas reserve quantities, and the discounted present value of these reserves;
the amount and nature of our capital expenditures;
our future drilling and development plans and our potential drilling locations;
the timing and amount of future capital and operating costs;
production decline rates from our wells being greater than expected;
commodity price risk management activities and the impact on our average realized prices;
business strategies and plans of management;
our ability to consummate and efficiently integrate recent acquisitions; and
prospect development and property acquisitions.
We caution you that the forward-looking statements contained or incorporated by reference in this Proxy Statement are subject to all of the risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control, incident to the exploration for and development, production and sale of oil and natural gas. These and other risks include, but are not limited to, the risks described in Part I, Item 1A of our 2020 Annual Report on Form 10-K and in all Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q filed subsequently thereto. These factors include:
volatility of oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids (“NGLs”) prices or a prolonged period of low oil, natural gas or NGLs prices;
general economic conditions including the availability of credit and access to existing lines of credit;
changes in the supply of and demand for oil and natural gas, including as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and various governmental actions taken to mitigate its impact or actions by, or disputes among, members of OPEC and other oil and natural gas producing countries, such as Russia, with respect to production levels or other matters related to the price of oil;
the uncertainty of estimates of oil and natural gas reserves;
impairments;
the impact of competition;
8


the availability and cost of seismic, drilling and other equipment, waste and water disposal infrastructure, and personnel;
operating hazards inherent in the exploration for and production of oil and natural gas;
difficulties encountered during the exploration for and production of oil and natural gas;
the potential impact of future drilling on production from existing wells;
difficulties encountered in delivering oil and natural gas to commercial markets;
the uncertainty of our ability to attract capital and obtain financing on favorable terms;
compliance with, or the effect of changes in, the extensive governmental regulations regarding the oil and natural gas business including those related to climate change and greenhouse gases;
the impact of government regulation, including regulation of hydraulic fracturing and water disposal wells;
any increase in severance or similar taxes;
the financial impact of accounting regulations and critical accounting policies;
the comparative cost of alternative fuels;
credit risk relating to the risk of loss as a result of non-performance by our counterparties;
cyberattacks on the Company or on systems and infrastructure used by the oil and natural gas industry; and
weather conditions.
In addition, there are risks and uncertainties relating to the Primexx Transaction, which include the following:
the Primexx Transaction may not be accretive, and may be dilutive, to Callon’s earnings per share, which may negatively affect the market price of Callon Common Stock; and
the ultimate timing, outcome, and results of integrating the assets acquired in the Primexx Transaction.
Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties occur, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, our actual results and plans could differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements. Additional risks or uncertainties that are not currently known to us, that we currently deem to be immaterial, or that could apply to any company could also materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, or future results. Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date of which such statement is made and the Company undertakes no obligation to correct or update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by applicable law.
In addition, we caution that reserve engineering is a process of estimating oil and natural gas accumulated underground and cannot be measured exactly. Accuracy of reserve estimates depend on a number of factors including data available at the point in time, engineering interpretation of the data, and assumptions used by the reserve engineers as it relates to price and cost estimates and recoverability. New results of drilling, testing, and production history may result in revisions of previous estimates and, if significant, would impact future development plans. As such, reserve estimates may differ from actual results of oil and natural gas quantities ultimately recovered.

Except as required by applicable law, all forward-looking statements attributable to us are expressly qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement. This cautionary statement should also be considered in connection with any subsequent written or oral forward-looking statements that we or persons acting on our behalf may issue.

THE ISSUANCE PROPOSAL
Overview and Reason for the Issuance Proposal
On August 3, 2021, the Company, entered into the Exchange Agreement by and among the Company and Kimmeridge, as holder of the Second Lien Notes. Pursuant to the Exchange Agreement, Kimmeridge agreed to exchange, on the Closing Date (as defined in the Exchange Agreement), $197.0 million in aggregate principal amount of Second Lien Notes held by Kimmeridge for 5,512,623 shares of New Common Stock (which equals a notional amount of approximately $223.1 million of New Common Stock as of August 3, 2021). Kimmeridge’s current holdings in the Company’s Second Lien Notes and all but 602,503 shares of Common Stock were obtained as part of concurrent transactions agreed to in September 2020 whereby Kimmeridge purchased Second Lien Notes, warrants for Common Stock, and an overriding royalty interest in substantially all Callon-operated oil and gas leaseholds as of the effective date of such transactions. Kimmeridge’s remaining shares of Common Stock were purchased in the open market.
The closing of the transactions pursuant to the Exchange Agreement is subject to various closing conditions, including (i) for purposes of complying with Rule 312.03(b), approval of the Company’s shareholders of the issuance of New Common Stock to Kimmeridge, (ii) the closing of the Primexx Transaction (which closing occurred on October 1, 2021), (iii) approval by the NYSE of the listing of the New Common Stock, (iv) the accuracy of each party’s representations and warranties, subject to certain materiality qualifiers and (v) the absence of any injunctions or orders preventing the Exchange. If any of these conditions are not satisfied or waived, the transactions pursuant to the Exchange Agreement will not close and, as a result, (i) the New Common Stock will not be issued to Kimmeridge and (ii) $197.0 million of Second Lien Notes owned by Kimmeridge will remain outstanding.
The Exchange Agreement may be terminated (i) upon the mutual consent of the parties thereto, (ii) by either party if the Exchange has not been consummated by December 31, 2021 (the “Outside Date”), (iii) by either party in the event of an order, judgment or decree delaying the closing beyond the Outside Date and (iv) by either party if the other party materially breaches the Exchange Agreement.
The foregoing description of the Exchange Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Exchange Agreement, which is attached hereto as Annex A.
We are seeking shareholder approval of the Issuance Proposal in order to comply with Rule 312.03(b) with respect to the issuance of the New Common Stock pursuant to the Exchange Agreement. Our Common Stock is listed on the NYSE, and thus, we are subject to NYSE listing requirements. Under Rule 312.03(b), shareholder approval is required prior to any issuance or sale of common stock in any transaction or series of related transactions (i) to a Related Party if the number of shares of common stock to be issued exceeds either 1% of the number of shares of common stock or 1% of the voting power outstanding before the issuance or (ii) when a Related Party has a 5% or greater interest, directly or indirectly, in the company or in the consideration to be paid in the transaction or series of related transactions, and the present or potential issuance of common stock could result in an issuance that exceeds either 5% of the number of shares of common stock or 5% of the voting power outstanding before the issuance. Under Rule 312.04(e), a shareholder is presumed to be a “substantial security holder” (and therefore, a “Related Party” for purposes of Rule 312.03(b)) if it owns either 5% or more of the number of shares of common stock or 5% or more of the voting power outstanding of a NYSE listed company.
Due to Kimmeridge’s beneficial ownership of approximately 11.2% of our outstanding shares of Common Stock as of October 4, 2021, Kimmeridge is a Related Party for purposes of Rule 312.03(b). Upon consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Exchange Agreement, the Company would issue to Kimmeridge New Common Stock equal to approximately 10.0% of the Company’s then-outstanding Common Stock. As a result, the issuance of the New Common Stock pursuant to the Exchange Agreement is subject to shareholder approval for purposes of complying with Rule 312.03(b). Approval of the Issuance Proposal requires the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the votes cast with regard to the Issuance Proposal at the Special Meeting, if a quorum is present.
The terms of the Exchange Agreement were negotiated between the parties on an arms-length basis. Neither Kimmeridge nor any of its affiliated entities has Board representation or any other governance rights with respect to the Company. The value of Common Stock to be delivered was based on the construct of the optional
12


redemption language in the Second Lien Notes Indenture. The price of the Common Stock used to calculate the Common Stock issued was based on the 10-day volume-weighted average price as of August 2, 2021, which was the 10-day period prior to execution of the Exchange Agreement.
The Exchange Agreement was unanimously approved by the Board upon the recommendation of the independent Nominating & ESG Committee of the Board, which is responsible for review of related party transactions for the Company.
The Board believes that the transactions contemplated by the Exchange Agreement will strengthen the Company’s financial position by accelerating deleveraging initiatives and reducing cash interest expense by approximately $20 million per year. In addition, the transactions will improve the standing of shareholders in the capital structure of the Company and enhance Callon’s access to debt capital markets, providing the opportunity for reductions in the corporate cost of capital.
The Voting Agreements
In connection with the execution of the Exchange Agreement, each of our executive officers and directors entered into the Voting Agreement. On the terms and conditions set forth in the Voting Agreement, our executive officers and directors agreed to vote all of the shares of Common Stock over which they have voting power (representing in the aggregate approximately 2% of the Company’s total outstanding voting power as of the Record Date) in favor of the Issuance Proposal. The foregoing description of the Voting Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Voting Agreement, which is attached hereto as Annex B.
Kimmeridge has also agreed, pursuant to the Exchange Agreement, to vote all of the shares of Common Stock for which it has voting power in favor of the Issuance Proposal. Additionally, Kimmeridge agreed, pursuant to the Exchange Agreement, not to transfer any Second Lien Notes and substantially all of the Common Stock beneficially held by it until the closing of the transactions pursuant to the Exchange Agreement, subject to certain exceptions, including (i) transfers of Common Stock to Affiliates who agree in writing to be bound by the Exchange Agreement and deliver an executed written agreement to that effect to the Company prior to such transfer, (ii) transfers of up to 500,000 shares of Common Stock, and (iii) transfers of Common Stock with the prior written consent the Company. As of October 4, 2021, Kimmeridge was the beneficial owner of 6,188,157 shares of Common Stock, representing approximately 11.2% of the Company’s total outstanding voting power. Additionally, pursuant to the purchase and sale agreements executed in connection with the Primexx Transaction, Primexx has also agreed to vote all shares of Common Stock over which they have voting power (which, as of the Record Date, was approximately 8.8 million shares) in favor of the Issuance Proposal.
In the aggregate, the foregoing voting agreements represent approximately 16 million, or approximately 30%, of the shares outstanding on the Record Date.
Registration Rights Agreement
In connection with the execution of the Exchange Agreement and issuance of New Common Stock thereunder, the Company and Kimmeridge agreed to enter into a registration rights agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) pursuant to which the Company is required to, subject to certain exceptions, prepare and file a registration statement under the Securities Act with the Securities and Exchange Commission, within three business days of the Closing Date (as defined in the Exchange Agreement), in order to permit the public resale of the New Common Stock. The Registration Rights Agreement will also include certain customary demand rights for underwritten offerings and piggyback rights.

(c)     If any suit, action, proceeding (including any governmental or regulatory investigation), claim or demand shall be brought or asserted against any person in respect of which indemnification may be sought pursuant to either paragraph (a) or (b) above, such person (the “Indemnified Person”) shall promptly notify the person against whom such indemnification may be sought (the “Indemnifying Person”) in writing; provided that the failure to notify the Indemnifying Person shall not relieve it from any liability that it may have under paragraph (a) or (b) above except to the extent that it has been materially prejudiced (through the forfeiture of substantive rights or defenses) by such failure; and provided, further, that the failure to notify the Indemnifying Person shall not relieve it from any liability that it may have to an Indemnified Person otherwise than under paragraph (a) or (b) above. If any such proceeding shall be brought or asserted against an Indemnified Person and it shall have notified the Indemnifying Person thereof, the Indemnifying Person shall retain counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Person (who shall not, without the consent of the Indemnified Person, be counsel to the Indemnifying Person) to represent the Indemnified Person in such proceeding and shall pay the fees and expenses of such counsel related to such proceeding, as incurred. In any such proceeding, any Indemnified Person shall have the right to retain its own counsel, but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be at the expense of such Indemnified Person unless
A-9


(i) the Indemnifying Person and the Indemnified Person shall have mutually agreed to the contrary; (ii) the Indemnifying Person has failed within a reasonable time to retain counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Person; (iii) the Indemnified Person shall have reasonably concluded that there may be legal defenses available to it that are different from or in addition to those available to the Indemnifying Person; or (iv) the named parties in any such proceeding (including any impleaded parties) include both the Indemnifying Person and the Indemnified Person and representation of both parties by the same counsel would be inappropriate due to actual or potential differing interests between them. It is understood and agreed that the Indemnifying Person shall not, in connection with any proceeding or related proceedings in the same jurisdiction, be liable for the fees and expenses of more than one separate firm (in addition to any local counsel) for all Indemnified Persons, and that all such fees and expenses shall be paid or reimbursed as they are incurred. Any such separate firm for Kimmeridge, its affiliates, directors and officers and any control persons of Kimmeridge shall be designated in writing by Kimmeridge and any such separate firm for the Company, its respective directors and officers and any control persons of the Company shall be designated in writing by the Company. The Indemnifying Person shall not be liable for any settlement of any proceeding effected without its written consent, but if settled with such consent or if there be a final judgment for the plaintiff, the Indemnifying Person agrees to indemnify each Indemnified Person from and against any loss or liability by reason of such settlement or judgment. Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, if at any time an Indemnified Person shall have requested that an Indemnifying Person reimburse the Indemnified Person for fees and expenses of counsel as contemplated by this paragraph, the Indemnifying Person shall be liable for any settlement of any proceeding effected without its written consent if (i) such settlement is entered into more than 30 days after receipt by the Indemnifying Person of such request and (ii) the Indemnifying Person shall not have reimbursed the Indemnified Person in accordance with such request prior to the date of such settlement. No Indemnifying Person shall, without the written consent of the Indemnified Person, effect any settlement of any pending or threatened proceeding in respect of which any Indemnified Person is or could have been a party and indemnification could have been sought hereunder by such Indemnified Person, unless such settlement (x) includes an unconditional release of such Indemnified Person, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to such Indemnified Person, from all liability on claims that are the subject matter of such proceeding and (y) does not include any statement as to or any admission of fault, culpability or a failure to act by or on behalf of any Indemnified Person.

REGISTRATION RIGHTS
Section 2.01    Shelf Registration.
(a)    Shelf Registration. Within three Business Days of the Closing Date, the Company shall prepare and file a Shelf Registration Statement with the SEC to permit the public resale of all Registrable Securities on the terms and conditions specified in this Section 2.01 (a “Registration Statement”). The Registration Statement filed with the SEC pursuant to this Section 2.01 shall be on Form S-3 and, if the Company is a WKSI as of the filing date thereof, shall be an Automatic Shelf Registration Statement or, if Form S-3 is not then available to the Company, on Form S-1 or such other form of registration statement as is then available to effect a registration for resale of the Registrable Securities, covering the Registrable Securities, and shall contain a prospectus in such form as to permit any Selling Holder covered by such Registration Statement to sell such Registrable Securities pursuant to Rule 415 under the Securities Act (or any successor or similar provision adopted by the SEC then in effect) at any time beginning on the Effective Date for such Registration Statement. The Company shall use its reasonable best efforts to cause a Registration Statement filed pursuant to this Section 2.01 to be declared effective as soon as reasonably practicable thereafter. During the Effectiveness Period, the Company shall use its reasonable best efforts to cause a Registration Statement filed pursuant to this Section 2.01 to remain effective, and to be supplemented and amended to the extent necessary to ensure that such Registration Statement is available or, if not available, that another registration statement is available for the resale of the Registrable Securities until all Registrable Securities have ceased to be Registrable Securities; provided, that the Company shall not be required to supplement or amend such Registration Statement more than once in any calendar quarterly period to name additional parties as the result of any transfer of registration rights. The Company shall prepare and file a supplemental listing application with the NYSE (or such other national securities exchange on which the Registrable Securities are then listed and traded) to list the Registrable Securities covered by a Registration Statement and shall use its reasonable best efforts to have such Registrable Securities approved for listing on the NYSE (or such other national securities exchange on which the Registrable Securities are then listed and traded) by the Effective Date of such Registration Statement, subject only to official notice of issuance. As soon as practicable following the Effective Date of a Registration Statement, but in any event within three Business Days of such date, the Company shall notify the Required Holders of the effectiveness of such Registration Statement. When effective, a Registration Statement (including the documents incorporated therein by reference) will comply as to form in all material respects with all applicable requirements of the Securities Act and the Exchange Act and will not contain an untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading (in the case of any prospectus contained in such Registration Statement, in the light of the circumstances under which a statement is made).
(b)    Delay Rights. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the Company may, upon written notice to (i) the Holders, delay the filing of a Registration Statement required under Section 2.01, or (ii) any Selling Holder whose Registrable Securities are included in a Registration Statement or other registration statement contemplated by this Agreement, suspend such Selling Holder’s use of any prospectus that is a part of
EX A-4


such Registration Statement or other registration statement (in which event the Selling Holder shall discontinue sales of the Registrable Securities pursuant to such Registration Statement or other registration statement contemplated by this Agreement but may settle any previously made sales of Registrable Securities) if the Company (x) is pursuing an acquisition, merger, tender offer, reorganization, disposition or other similar transaction and the Board determines reasonably and in good faith that (A) the Company’s ability to pursue or consummate such a transaction would be materially adversely affected by any required disclosure of such transaction in such Registration Statement or other registration statement or (B) such transaction renders the Company unable to comply with SEC requirements, in each case under circumstances that would make it impractical or inadvisable to cause the Registration Statement (or such filings) to become effective or to promptly amend or supplement the Registration Statement or other registration statement contemplated by this Agreement on a post effective basis, as applicable, or (y) has experienced some other material non-public event the disclosure of which at such time, in the reasonable and good faith judgment of the Board, would materially adversely affect the Company; providedhowever, that in no event shall the Selling Holders be suspended from selling Registrable Securities pursuant to such Registration Statement for a period that exceeds an aggregate of 60 days in any 180-day period or 105 days in any 365-day period. Upon disclosure of such information or the termination of the condition described above, the Company shall provide prompt notice, but in any event within one Business Day of such disclosure or termination, to the Selling Holders whose Registrable Securities are included in such Registration Statement and shall promptly terminate any suspension of sales it has put into effect and shall take such other reasonable actions to permit registered sales of Registrable Securities as contemplated in this Agreement.
Section 2.02    Piggyback Rights.
(a)    Participation. So long as a Holder has Registrable Securities, if the Company proposes to file (i) a shelf registration statement other than a Registration Statement contemplated by Section 2.01 and other than a registration statement on Forms S-4 or S-8 and any successor forms, (ii) a prospectus supplement to an effective shelf registration statement relating to the sale of equity securities of the Company, other than a Registration Statement contemplated by Section 2.01 and Holders may be included without the filing of a post-effective amendment thereto, or (iii) a registration statement, other than a shelf registration statement, and other than a registration statement on Forms S-4 or S-8 and any successor forms, in each case, for the sale of Common Stock in an Underwritten Offering for its own account or that of another Person, or both, then the Company shall give prompt written notice of its intention to effect such registration at least five Business Days before the proposed date of filing of the applicable Registration Statement or prospectus supplement, or at least two Business Days in connection with any overnight or bought Underwritten Offering, to the Holders and such notice shall (A) describe the intended method(s) of distribution, and the name of the proposed Managing Underwriter or Underwriters, if any, in such offering and (B) offer the Holders the opportunity to include in such registration statement, prospectus supplement or Underwritten Offering, as the case may be, such number of Registrable Securities (the “Included Registrable Securities”) as the Holders may request in writing (such request may include the Registrable Securities to be included on behalf of any other Holder, as specified by the Holders); provided, however, that if the Company has been advised by the Managing Underwriter of any such Underwritten Offering that the inclusion of all Registrable Securities that the Selling Holders intend to include in such offering exceeds the number that can be sold in such offering without being likely to have an adverse effect on the price, timing or distribution of the Common Stock in the Underwritten Offering, then (x) if no Registrable Securities can be included in the Underwritten Offering in the opinion of the Managing Underwriter without having such adverse effect, the Company shall not be required to offer such opportunity to the Holders or (y) if any Registrable Securities can be included in the Underwritten Offering in the opinion of the Managing Underwriter without having such adverse effect, then the amount of Registrable Securities to be offered for the accounts of Holders shall be determined based on the provisions of Section 2.02(b) or in such other manner as such Selling Holders may agree. Any notice required to be provided in this Section 2.02(a) to the Holders shall be provided on a Business Day and receipt of such notice shall be confirmed by the Holders. Holders shall then have two Business Days (or one Business Day in connection with any overnight or bought Underwritten Offering) after notice has been delivered to request in writing the inclusion of Registrable Securities in the Underwritten Offering. If no written request for inclusion from Holders is received within the specified time, each such Holder shall have no further right to participate in such Underwritten Offering. If, at any time after giving written notice of its intention to undertake an Underwritten Offering and prior to the closing of such Underwritten Offering, the Company shall determine for any reason not to undertake or to delay such Underwritten Offering, the

Company may, at its election, give written notice of such determination to the Selling Holders and, (1) in the case of a determination not to undertake such Underwritten Offering, shall be relieved of its obligation to sell any Included Registrable Securities in connection with such terminated Underwritten Offering, and (2) in the case of a determination to delay such Underwritten Offering, shall be permitted to delay offering any Included Registrable Securities as part of such Underwritten Offering for the same period as the delay in the Underwritten Offering. Any Selling Holder shall have the right to withdraw such Selling Holder’s request for inclusion of such Selling Holder’s Registrable Securities in such Underwritten Offering by giving written notice to the Company of such withdrawal at least one Business Day before the time of pricing of such Underwritten Offering. Holders may deliver written notice (an “Opt-Out Notice”) to the Company requesting that such Holder not receive notice from the Company of any proposed Underwritten Offering; provided, however, that such Holder may later revoke any such Opt-Out Notice in writing prior to five Business Day before the time of pricing of such underwritten offering. Following receipt of an Opt-Out Notice from a Holder (unless subsequently revoked), the Company shall not be required to deliver any notice to such Holder pursuant to this Section 2.02(a) and such Holder (unless such Holder’s Opt-Out Notice is subsequently revoked) shall no longer be entitled to participate in Underwritten Offerings by the Company pursuant to this Section 2.02(a).
(b)    Priority. If the Managing Underwriter of any proposed Underwritten Offering of Common Stock involving Included Registrable Securities pursuant to this Section 2.02 advises the Company that the total amount of Common Stock that the Selling Holders and any other Persons intend to include in such offering exceeds the number of shares of Common Stock that can be sold in such offering without being likely to have an adverse effect on the price, timing or distribution of the Common Stock offered or the market for the Common Stock, then the Common Stock to be included in such Underwritten Offering shall include the number of Registrable Securities that such Managing Underwriter advises the Company can be sold without having such adverse effect, with such number to be allocated (i) first, to the Company or other party or parties requesting or initiating such registration, (ii) second, by the Selling Holders who have requested participation in such Underwritten Offering, allocated among such Selling Holders pro rata on the basis of the number of Registrable Securities held by each Selling Holder or in such manner as they may agree and (iii) third, by the other holders of Common Stock (other than Holders) with registration rights entitling them to participate in such Underwritten Offering, allocated among such other holders pro rata on the basis of the number of shares of Common Stock held by each applicable other holder or in such manner as they may agree.
Section 2.03    Underwritten Offerings.
(a)    Demand Offering. In the event that any Holder elects to dispose of Registrable Securities under a Registration Statement pursuant to an Underwritten Offering and reasonably expects gross proceeds of at least $25 million from such Underwritten Offering (together with any Registrable Securities to be disposed of by a Selling Holder who has elected to participate in such Underwritten Offering pursuant to Section 2.02), the Company shall, at the written request of such Selling Holder(s), enter into an underwriting agreement in a form as is customary in Underwritten Offerings of securities by the Company with the Managing Underwriter or Underwriters selected by the Company (subject to the written consent of the Initiating Holder of such Underwritten Offering, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld), which shall include, among other provisions, indemnities to the effect and to the extent provided in Section 2.08, and shall take all such other reasonable actions as are requested by the Managing Underwriter or Underwriters in order to expedite or facilitate the disposition of such Registrable Securities; providedhowever, that the Company shall have no obligation to facilitate or participate in, including entering into any underwriting agreement for more than two Underwritten Offerings at the request of the Holders hereunder; providedfurther, that if the Company is conducting or actively pursuing a securities offering of Common Stock with anticipated gross offering proceeds of at least $25 million (other than in connection with any at-the-market offering or similar continuous offering program), then the Company may suspend such Selling Holders’ rights to require the Company to conduct an Underwritten Offering pursuant to this Section 2.03providedhowever, that the Company may only suspend such Selling Holders’ rights to require the Company to conduct an Underwritten Offering pursuant to this Section 2.03 once in any six-month period and in no event for a period that exceeds an aggregate of 75 days in any 180-day period or 105 days in any 365-day period.
EX A-6


(b)    General Procedures. In connection with any Underwritten Offering contemplated by Section 2.03(a), the underwriting agreement into which each Selling Holder and the Company shall enter shall contain such representations, covenants, indemnities (subject to Section 2.08) and other rights and obligations as are customary in Underwritten Offerings of securities by the Company. No Selling Holder shall be required to make any representations or warranties to, or agreements with, the Company or the Underwriters other than representations, warranties or agreements regarding (i) such Holder’s ownership of its Registrable Securities to be sold or transferred, (ii) such Selling Holder’s authority to enter into such underwriting agreement and to sell or transfer such securities, (iii) its intended method of distribution and (iv) any other such matters or representations pertaining to compliance with securities laws as may be reasonably requested. If any Selling Holder disapproves of the terms of an Underwritten Offering contemplated by this Section 2.03, such Selling Holder may elect to withdraw therefrom by notice to the Company and the Managing Underwriter; providedhowever, that such withdrawal must be made at least one Business Day prior to the time of pricing of such Underwritten Offering to be effective; providedfurther, that in the event the Managing Underwriter or Underwriters of any proposed Underwritten Offering advise the Company that the total amount of Registrable Securities that Holders intend to include in such offering exceeds the number that can be sold in such offering without being likely to have an adverse effect on the price, timing or distribution of the Registrable Securities offered or the market for the Common Stock, and the amount of Registrable Securities requested to be included in such Underwritten Offering by the Holder that initiated such Underwritten Offering pursuant to Section 2.03(a) (the “Initiating Holder”) is reduced by 50% or more, the Initiating Holder will have the right to withdraw from such Underwritten Offering by delivering notice to the Company at least one Business Day prior to the time of pricing of such Underwritten Offering. If, pursuant to the preceding sentence, the entire Demand Registration Request is revoked, then, at the option of the Holder or Holders who revoke such request, either (i) such Holder or Holders shall reimburse the Company for all of its reasonable and documented incremental out-of-pocket expenses incurred in the preparation, filing and processing of the Registration Statement or prospectus supplement with respect to such requested Underwritten Offering, which incremental out-of-pocket expenses, for the avoidance of doubt, shall not include overhead expenses and which requested Underwritten Offering, whether or not completed, will not decrease the number of Underwritten Offerings the Holders shall have the right and option to request under this Section 2.03.
(c)    Priority. If the Managing Underwriter of any proposed Underwritten Offering of Registrable Securities pursuant to this Section 2.03 advises the Company that the total amount of Common Stock that the Selling Holders and any other Persons intend to include in such offering exceeds the number of shares of Common Stock that can be sold in such offering without being likely to have an adverse effect on the price, timing or distribution of the Common Stock offered or the market for the Common Stock, then the Common Stock to be included in such Underwritten Offering shall include the number of Registrable Securities that such Managing Underwriter advises the Company can be sold without having such adverse effect, with such number to be allocated (i) first, to the Selling Holder who requested such Underwritten Offering, (ii) second, to any other Holders of Registrable Securities who have elected to participate in such Underwritten Offering, allocated among such other Selling Holders pro rata on the basis of the number of Registrable Securities held by each such Selling Holder or in such other manner as such Selling Holders may agree, and (iii) third, to the Company.
Section 2.04    Sale Procedures. In connection with its obligations under this Article II, the Company shall, as expeditiously as possible:
(a)    use its reasonable best efforts to prepare and file with the SEC such amendments and supplements to a Registration Statement and the prospectus used in connection therewith as may be necessary to keep such Registration Statement effective for the Effectiveness Period and as may be necessary to comply with the provisions of the Securities Act with respect to the disposition of all Registrable Securities covered by such Registration Statement;
(b)    if a prospectus supplement will be used in connection with the marketing of an Underwritten Offering from a Registration Statement and the Managing Underwriter at any time shall notify the Company in writing that, in the sole judgment of such Managing Underwriter, inclusion of detailed information to be used in such prospectus supplement is of material importance to the success of the Underwritten Offering of such
EX A-7


Registrable Securities, the Company shall use its reasonable best efforts to include such information in such prospectus supplement;
(c)    furnish to each Selling Holder (i) as far in advance as reasonably practicable before filing a Registration Statement or any other registration statement contemplated by this Agreement or any supplement or amendment thereto, upon request, copies of reasonably complete drafts of all such documents proposed to be filed (including exhibits and each document incorporated by reference therein to the extent then required by the rules and regulations of the SEC other than annual or quarterly reports on Form 10-K or 10-Q, respectively, current reports on Form 8-K or proxy statements; provided, however, that such reports or proxy statements shall be provided at least two Business Days prior to filing in connection with any Underwritten Offering), and provide each such Selling Holder the opportunity to object to any information pertaining to such Selling Holder and its plan of distribution that is contained therein and make the corrections reasonably requested by such Selling Holder with respect to such information prior to filing a Registration Statement or such other registration statement or supplement or amendment thereto, and (ii) such number of copies of such Registration Statement or such other registration statement and the prospectus included therein and any supplements and amendments thereto as such Selling Holder may reasonably request in order to facilitate the public sale or other disposition of the Registrable Securities covered by such Registration Statement or other registration statement;
(d)    if applicable, use its reasonable best efforts to register or qualify the Registrable Securities covered by a Registration Statement or any other registration statement contemplated by this Agreement under the securities or blue sky laws of such jurisdictions as the Selling Holders or, in the case of an Underwritten Offering, the Managing Underwriter, shall reasonably request; provided, however, that the Company shall not be required to qualify generally to transact business in any jurisdiction where it is not then required to so qualify or to take any action that would subject it to general service of process in any such jurisdiction where it is not then so subject;
(e)    promptly notify each Selling Holder, at any time when a prospectus relating thereto is required to be delivered by any of them under the Securities Act, of (i) the filing of a Registration Statement or any other registration statement contemplated by this Agreement or any prospectus or prospectus supplement to be used in connection therewith, or any amendment or supplement thereto, and, with respect to such Registration Statement or any other registration statement or any post-effective amendment thereto, when the same has become effective; and (ii) the receipt of any written comments from the SEC with respect to any filing referred to in clause (i) and any written request by the SEC for amendments or supplements to such Registration Statement or any other registration statement or any prospectus or prospectus supplement thereto;
(f)    promptly notify each Selling Holder, at any time when a prospectus relating thereto is required to be delivered under the Securities Act, of (i) the happening of any event as a result of which the prospectus or prospectus supplement contained in a Registration Statement or any other registration statement contemplated by this Agreement, as then in effect, includes an untrue statement of a material fact or omits to state any material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading (in the case of any prospectus contained therein, in the light of the circumstances under which a statement is made); (ii) the issuance or express threat of issuance by the SEC of any stop order suspending the effectiveness of such Registration Statement or any other registration statement contemplated by this Agreement, or the initiation of any proceedings for that purpose; or (iii) the receipt by the Company of any notification with respect to the suspension of the qualification of any Registrable Securities for sale under the applicable securities or blue sky laws of any jurisdiction. Following the provision of such notice, the Company agrees to as promptly as practicable amend or supplement the prospectus or prospectus supplement or take other appropriate action so that the prospectus or prospectus supplement does not include an untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading in the light of the circumstances then existing and to take such other commercially reasonable action as is necessary to remove a stop order, suspension, threat thereof or proceedings related thereto;
(g)    upon request and subject to appropriate confidentiality obligations, furnish to each Selling Holder copies of any and all transmittal letters or other correspondence with the SEC or any other governmental agency or
EX A-8


self-regulatory body or other body having jurisdiction (including any domestic or foreign securities exchange) relating to such offering of Registrable Securities;
(h)    in the case of an Underwritten Offering, use its reasonable best efforts to furnish to the underwriters upon request, (i) an opinion of counsel for the Company dated the date of the closing under the underwriting agreement and (ii) a “cold comfort” letter, dated the pricing date of such Underwritten Offering and a letter of like kind dated the date of the closing under the underwriting agreement, in each case, signed by the independent public accountants who have certified the Company’s financial statements included or incorporated by reference into the applicable registration statement, and each of the opinion and the “cold comfort” letter shall be in customary form and covering substantially the same matters with respect to such registration statement (and the prospectus and any prospectus supplement included therein) as have been customarily covered in opinions of issuer’s counsel and in accountants’ letters delivered to the underwriters in Underwritten Offerings of securities by the Company and such other matters as such underwriters and Selling Holders may reasonably request;
(i)    otherwise use its reasonable best efforts to comply with all applicable rules and regulations of the SEC, and make available to its security holders (which may be satisfied by making such information available on the SEC’s Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis and Retrieval system or any successor system known as “EDGAR”), as soon as reasonably practicable, an earnings statement, covering a period of twelve months beginning within three months after the Effective Date of such Registration Statement, which earnings statement shall satisfy the provisions of Section 11(a) of the Securities Act and Rule 158 promulgated thereunder;
(j)    make available to the appropriate representatives of the Managing Underwriter and Selling Holders access to such information and Company personnel as is reasonable and customary to enable such parties to establish a due diligence defense under the Securities Act; provided, that the Company need not disclose any non-public information to any such representative unless and until such representative has entered into a confidentiality agreement with the Company;
(k)    use its reasonable best efforts to cause all such Registrable Securities registered pursuant to this Agreement to be listed on each securities exchange or nationally recognized quotation system on which the Common Stock are then listed or quoted;
(l)    use its reasonable best efforts to cause the Registrable Securities to be registered with or approved by such other governmental agencies or authorities as may be necessary by virtue of the business and operations of the Company to enable the Selling Holders to consummate the disposition of such Registrable Securities;
(m)    provide a transfer agent and registrar for all Registrable Securities covered by such registration statement not later than the Effective Date of such registration statement;
(n)    enter into customary agreements and take such other actions as are reasonably requested by the Selling Holders or the underwriters, if any, in order to expedite or facilitate the disposition of such Registrable Securities (including, in the case of an Underwritten Offering of $50 million or greater of Registrable Securities (calculated based on the Registrable Securities Amount), making appropriate officers of the Company available to participate in any “road show” presentations before analysts, and other customary marketing activities (including one-on-one meetings with prospective purchasers of the Registrable Securities)); provided, however, that the officers of the Company shall not be required to dedicate an unreasonably burdensome amount of time in connection with activities for any Underwritten Offering;
(o)    if requested by a Selling Holder, (i) as soon as practicable incorporate in a prospectus supplement or post-effective amendment such information as such Selling Holder reasonably requests to be included therein relating to the sale and distribution of Registrable Securities, including information with respect to the number of Registrable Securities being offered or sold, the purchase price being paid therefor and any other terms of the offering of the Registrable Securities to be sold in such offering, and (ii) as soon as practicable make all required filings of such prospectus supplement or post-effective amendment after being notified of the matters to be incorporated in such prospectus supplement or post-effective amendment; and
EX A-9


(p)    if reasonably required by the Company’s transfer agent, use commercially reasonably efforts to promptly deliver any authorizations, certificates and directions required by the transfer agent which authorize and direct the transfer agent to transfer such Registrable Securities without legend, in accordance with applicable law, upon sale by the Holder of such Registrable Securities under the Registration Statement.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 2.04, the Company shall not name a Holder as an underwriter (as defined in Section 2(a)(11) of the Securities Act) in any Registration Statement without such Holder’s consent.
Each Selling Holder, upon receipt of notice from the Company of the happening of any event of the kind described in Section 2.04(f), shall forthwith discontinue offers and sales of the Registrable Securities by means of a prospectus or prospectus supplement until such Selling Holder’s receipt of the copies of the supplemented or amended prospectus contemplated by Section 2.04(f) or until it is advised in writing by the Company that the use of the prospectus may be resumed and has received copies of any additional or supplemental filings incorporated by reference in the prospectus, and, if so directed by the Company, such Selling Holder shall, or shall request the Managing Underwriter, if any, to deliver to the Company (at the Company’s expense) all copies in their possession or control, other than permanent file copies then in such Selling Holder’s possession, of the prospectus covering such Registrable Securities current at the time of receipt of such notice.
Section 2.05    Cooperation by Holders. The Company shall have no obligation to include Registrable Securities of a Holder in a Registration Statement or in an Underwritten Offering pursuant to Section 2.02(a) or Section 2.03(a) who has failed to timely furnish after receipt of a written request from the Company such information that the Company determines, after consultation with its counsel, is reasonably required in order for the registration statement or prospectus supplement, as applicable, to comply with the Securities Act.
Section 2.06    Restrictions on Public Sale by Holders of Registrable Securities. To the extent requested by the Managing Underwriter, each Holder of Registrable Securities that participates in an Underwritten Offering will enter into a customary letter agreement with underwriters providing such Holder will not effect any public sale or distribution of Registrable Securities during the 60 calendar-day period beginning on the date of a prospectus or prospectus supplement filed with the SEC with respect to the pricing of such Underwritten Offering, provided that, notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) the duration of the foregoing restrictions shall be no longer than the duration of the shortest restriction imposed by the Underwriters on the Company or the officers, directors or any other Affiliate of the Company on whom a restriction is imposed and (ii) that the restrictions set forth in this Section 2.06 shall not apply to any Registrable Securities that are included in such Underwritten Offering by such Holder. In addition, this Section 2.06 shall not apply to any Holder that is not entitled to participate in such Underwritten Offering, whether because such Holder delivered an Opt-Out Notice prior to receiving notice of the Underwritten Offering or because the Registrable Securities held by such Holder may be disposed of without restriction pursuant to Rule 144 under the Securities Act (or any successor or similar provision adopted by the SEC then in effect).
Section 2.07    Expenses.
(a)    Expenses. The Company shall pay all reasonable Registration Expenses as determined reasonably and in good faith by the Board, including, in the case of an Underwritten Offering, the Registration Expenses of an Underwritten Offering, regardless of whether any sale is made pursuant to such Underwritten Offering. Each Selling Holder shall pay its pro rata share of all Selling Expenses in connection with any sale of its Registrable Securities hereunder. For the avoidance of doubt, each Selling Holder’s pro rata allocation of Selling Expenses shall be the percentage derived by dividing (i) the number of Registrable Securities sold by such Selling Holder in connection with such sale by (ii) the aggregate number of Registrable Securities sold by all Selling Holders in connection with such sale. In addition, except as otherwise provided in Sections 2.07 and 2.08 hereof, the Company shall not be responsible for legal fees incurred by Holders in connection with the exercise of such Holders’ rights hereunder.
(b)    Certain Definitions. “Registration Expenses” means all expenses incident to the Company’s performance under or compliance with this Agreement to effect the registration of Registrable Securities on a
EX A-10


Registration Statement pursuant to Section 2.01 or an Underwritten Offering covered under this Agreement, and the disposition of such Registrable Securities, including, without limitation, all registration, filing, securities exchange listing and NYSE fees, all registration, filing, qualification and other fees and expenses of complying with securities or blue sky laws, fees of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc., fees of transfer agents and registrars, all word processing, duplicating and printing expenses, any transfer taxes, and the fees and disbursements of counsel and independent public accountants for the Company, including the expenses of any special audits or “cold comfort” letters required by or incident to such performance and compliance. “Selling Expenses” means all underwriting discounts and selling commissions or similar fees or arrangements allocable to the sale of the Registrable Securities, transfer taxes and fees and disbursements of counsel to the Selling Holders, except for the reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel for the Selling Holders required to be paid by the Company pursuant to Sections 2.07 and 2.08.
Section 2.08    Indemnification.
(a)    By the Company. In the event of a registration of any Registrable Securities under the Securities Act pursuant to this Agreement, the Company shall indemnify and hold harmless each Selling Holder thereunder, its directors, officers, managers, members, partners, employees, agents and Affiliates and each Person, if any, who controls such Selling Holder or its Affiliates within the meaning of the Securities Act and the Exchange Act, and its directors, officers, members, partners, employees or agents (collectively, the “Selling Holder Indemnified Persons”), against any losses, claims, damages, third party expenses incurred by or on such Holder’s behalf or liabilities (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and third party expenses incurred by or on such Holder’s behalf) (collectively, “Losses”), joint or several, to which such Selling Holder Indemnified Person may become subject under the Securities Act, the Exchange Act or otherwise, insofar as such Losses (or actions or proceedings, whether commenced or threatened, in respect thereof) arise out of or are based upon any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of any material fact (in the case of any prospectus, in light of the circumstances under which such statement is made) contained in (which, for the avoidance of doubt, includes documents incorporated by reference in) such Registration Statement or any other registration statement contemplated by this Agreement, any preliminary prospectus, prospectus supplement or final prospectus contained therein, or any amendment or supplement thereof, or any free writing prospectus relating thereto or arise out of or are based upon the omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein (in the case of a prospectus, in light of the circumstances under which they were made) not misleading, and shall reimburse each such Selling Holder Indemnified Person for any legal or other third party expenses reasonably incurred by or on such Holder’s behalf in connection with investigating, defending or resolving any such Loss or actions or proceedings; provided, however, that the Company shall not be liable in any such case if and to the extent that any such Loss arises out of or is based upon an untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission so made in conformity with information furnished by such Selling Holder Indemnified Person in writing specifically for use in such Registration Statement or such other registration statement, or prospectus supplement, as applicable. Such indemnity shall remain in full force and effect regardless of any investigation made by or on behalf of such Selling Holder Indemnified Person, and shall survive the transfer of such securities by such Selling Holder.
(b)    By Each Selling Holder. Each Selling Holder agrees severally and not jointly to indemnify and hold harmless the Company, its directors, officers, employees and agents and each Person, if any, who controls the Company within the meaning of the Securities Act or of the Exchange Act, and its directors, officers, employees and agents, to the same extent as the foregoing indemnity from the Company to the Selling Holders, but only with respect to information regarding such Selling Holder furnished in writing by or on behalf of such Selling Holder expressly for inclusion in such Registration Statement or any other registration statement contemplated by this Agreement, any preliminary prospectus, prospectus supplement or final prospectus contained therein, or any amendment or supplement thereof, or any free writing prospectus relating thereto; provided, however, that the liability of each Selling Holder shall not be greater in amount than the dollar amount of the proceeds (net of any Selling Expenses) received by such Selling Holder from the sale of the Registrable Securities giving rise to such indemnification.
(c)    Notice. Promptly after receipt by an indemnified party hereunder of notice of the commencement of any action, such indemnified party shall, if a claim in respect thereof is to be made against the indemnifying party
EX A-11


hereunder, notify the indemnifying party in writing thereof, but the omission to so notify the indemnifying party shall not relieve it from any liability that it may have to any indemnified party other than under this Section 2.08. In any action brought against any indemnified party, it shall notify the indemnifying party of the commencement thereof. The indemnifying party shall be entitled to participate in and, to the extent it shall wish, to assume and undertake the defense thereof with counsel reasonably satisfactory to such indemnified party and, after notice from the indemnifying party to such indemnified party of its election so to assume and undertake the defense thereof, the indemnifying party shall not be liable to such indemnified party under this Section 2.08 for any legal or other expenses subsequently incurred by such indemnified party in connection with the defense thereof other than reasonable costs of investigation and of liaison with counsel so selected; provided, however, that, (i) if the indemnifying party has failed to assume the defense or employ counsel reasonably acceptable to the indemnified party or (ii) if the defendants in any such action include both the indemnified party and the indemnifying party and counsel to the indemnified party shall have concluded that there may be reasonable defenses available to the indemnified party that are different from or additional to those available to the indemnifying party, or if the interests of the indemnified party reasonably may be deemed to conflict with the interests of the indemnifying party, then the indemnified party shall have the right to select a separate counsel and to assume such legal defense and otherwise to participate in the defense of such action, with the reasonable expenses and fees of such separate counsel and other reasonable expenses related to such participation to be reimbursed by the indemnifying party as incurred. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, no indemnifying party shall settle any action brought against any indemnified party with respect to which such indemnified party is or may be entitled to indemnification hereunder without the consent of the indemnified party, unless the settlement thereof imposes no liability or obligation on, and includes a complete and unconditional release from all liability of, and does not contain any admission of wrongdoing by, the indemnified party.
(d)    Contribution. If the indemnification provided for in this Section 2.08 is held by a court or government agency of competent jurisdiction to be unavailable to any indemnified party or is insufficient to hold them harmless in respect of any Losses, then each such indemnifying party, in lieu of indemnifying such indemnified party, shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by such indemnified party as a result of such Loss in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the indemnifying party on the one hand and of such indemnified party on the other in connection with the statements or omissions that resulted in such Losses, as well as any other relevant equitable considerations; provided, however, that in no event shall such Selling Holder be required to contribute an aggregate amount in excess of the dollar amount of proceeds (net of Selling Expenses) received by such Selling Holder from the sale of Registrable Securities giving rise to such indemnification. The relative fault of the indemnifying party on the one hand and the indemnified party on the other shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether the untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or the omission or alleged omission to state a material fact has been made by, or relates to, information supplied by such party, and the parties’ relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such statement or omission. The parties hereto agree that it would not be just and equitable if contributions pursuant to this paragraph were to be determined by pro rata allocation or by any other method of allocation that does not take account of the equitable considerations referred to herein. The amount paid by an indemnified party as a result of the Losses referred to in the first sentence of this paragraph shall be deemed to include any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by such indemnified party in connection with investigating, defending or resolving any Loss that is the subject of this paragraph. No person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Securities Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any Person who is not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation.
(e)    Other Indemnification. The provisions of this Section 2.08 shall be in addition to any other rights to indemnification or contribution that an indemnified party may have pursuant to law, equity, contract or otherwise. To the extent that any of the Holders is, or would be expected to be, deemed to be an underwriter of Registrable Securities pursuant to any SEC comments or policies or any court of law or otherwise, the Company agrees that (i) the indemnification and contribution provisions contained in this Section 2.08 shall be applicable to the benefit of such Holder in its role as deemed underwriter in addition to its capacity as a Holder (so long as the amount for which any other Holder is or becomes responsible does not exceed the amount for which such Holder would be responsible if the Holder were not deemed to be an underwriter of Registrable Securities) and (ii) such Holder and its representatives shall be entitled to conduct the due diligence which would normally be conducted in connection with
EX A-12


an offering of securities registered under the Securities Act, including receipt of customary opinions and comfort letters.
Section 2.09    Rule 144 Reporting. With a view to making available the benefits of certain rules and regulations of the SEC that may permit the sale of the Registrable Securities to the public without registration, the Company agrees to use its reasonable best efforts to:
(a)    make and keep public information regarding the Company available, as those terms are understood and defined in Rule 144 under the Securities Act (or any successor or similar provision adopted by the SEC then in effect), at all times from and after the date hereof (which may be satisfied by making such information available on EDGAR);
(b)    file with the SEC in a timely manner all reports and other documents required of the Company under the Securities Act and the Exchange Act at all times from and after the date hereof; and
(c)    so long as a Holder owns any Registrable Securities, furnish, (i) to the extent accurate, forthwith upon request, a written statement of the Company that it has complied with the reporting requirements of Rule 144 under the Securities Act (or any similar provision then in effect) and (ii) unless otherwise available electronically at no additional charge via the SEC’s EDGAR system, to such Holder forthwith upon request a copy of the most recent annual or quarterly report of the Company, and such other reports and documents as such Holder may reasonably request in availing itself of any rule or regulation of the SEC allowing such Holder to sell any such securities without registration.
Section 2.10    Transfer or Assignment of Registration Rights. The rights to cause the Company to register Registrable Securities under this Article II may not be transferred or assigned except pursuant to this Section 2.10.
(a)    If a Holder transfers or assigns all (and not less than all) of the Registerable Securities Beneficially Owned by such Holder, then such Holder may transfer or assign its rights pursuant to this Agreement to such transferee or assignee.
(b)    If a Holder transfers or assigns (A) 20% or more of the Registerable Securities issued on the Closing Date but less than all of the Registerable Securities issued on the Closing Date, then the transferee or assignee thereof shall be entitled to the rights granted to a Holder pursuant to this Agreement except those contained in Section 2.03 and (B) less than 20% of the Registerable Securities issued on the Closing Date, then the transferee or assignee thereof shall be entitled to the rights granted to a Holder pursuant to this Agreement except those contained in Sections 2.02 and 2.03.
(c)    In the case of any such transfer or assignment where the transferee or assignee shall have any rights of a Holder hereunder, the Holder making such transfer or assignment must provide the Company written notice of any said transfer or assignment, stating the name and address of each such transferee or assignee and identifying the Registerable Securities Beneficially Owned thereby.
Section 2.11    Limitation on Subsequent Registration Rights. From and after the date hereof, the Company shall not, without the prior written consent of the Required Holders, enter into any agreement with any current or future holder of any equity securities of the Company that would allow such current or future holder to require the Company to include equity securities in any registration statement filed by the Company on a basis other than pari passu with, or expressly subordinated to the piggyback rights granted to the Holders pursuant to Section 2.02; provided, that in no event shall the Company enter into any agreement that would permit another holder of securities of the Company to participate on a superior or pari passu basis (in terms of priority of cut-back based on advice of Underwriters) with a Holder requesting registration or takedown in an Underwritten Offering pursuant to Section 2.03(a).
EX A-13


Section 2.12    Termination of Registration Rights. The rights to cause the Company to register Registrable Securities granted to the Required Holders by the Company under this Article II shall terminate upon the date on which all Registrable Securities no longer constitute Registrable Securities in accordance with Section 1.02.

B-1


2.    Voting Restrictions. Each Stockholder hereby agrees that, other than pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, at all times during the period commencing with the execution and delivery of the Exchange Agreement and continuing until the Expiration Time, each Stockholder shall not, directly or indirectly, grant any proxies or enter into any voting trust or other agreement or arrangement that would transfer, limit or otherwise affect the rights of the Stockholder with respect to the voting of any Shares in respect of the Proposal (as defined below).
3.    Agreement to Vote Shares. Each Stockholder hereby, each separately, agrees with the Company that, at all times during the period commencing with the execution and delivery of the Exchange Agreement and continuing until the Expiration Time, the Stockholder shall (a) when a meeting of the stockholders of the Company is called to present the Exchange for a vote of the stockholders (whether or not an adjourned or postponed meeting), appear at such meeting or otherwise cause any shares of Company Common Stock Beneficially Owned by such Stockholder to be counted as present thereat for the purpose of establishing a quorum and (b) with respect to any meeting at which a vote of the Company’s stockholders is requested, vote, or cause to be voted at such meeting, all shares of Company Common Stock Beneficially Owned by such Stockholder or any of its Affiliates (including by proxy or written consent, if applicable) (i) in favor of any proposal (the “Proposal”) to approve the Exchange and in favor of any other matter presented or proposed that is related to the Exchange in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in the Exchange Agreement, (ii) against any other proposal, transaction, agreement or other action inconsistent with or made in opposition to approval of the Exchange and (iii) in favor of any proposal to adjourn or postpone such stockholder meeting to a later date if there are not sufficient votes to approve the Exchange. Prior to the Expiration Time, each Stockholder shall not enter into any agreement or understanding with any person to vote or give instructions in any manner inconsistent with the terms of this Agreement. The provisions of this Section 3 shall apply to all Shares owned as of the record date for the vote on the Proposal (the “Record Date”), regardless of whether a Transfer of some or all of such Shares occurs after the Record Date.
4.    Irrevocable Proxy. Each Stockholder hereby, each separately, appoints the Company and any designee of the Company (determined in the Company’s sole discretion) as its proxy and attorney-in-fact (with full power of substitution), for and in the name, place and stead of such Stockholder, to vote or cause to be voted (including by proxy or written consent, if applicable) its shares of Company Common Stock to approve the Exchange at any such meeting of the Company’s stockholders in accordance with Section 3 hereof. This proxy is given to secure the performance of the duties of each Stockholder under this Agreement. Each Stockholder shall take such further action or execute such other instruments as may be necessary to effectuate the intent of this proxy. The proxy and power of attorney granted pursuant to Section 4 by each Stockholder shall be irrevocable during the term of this Agreement, shall be deemed to be coupled with an interest sufficient in law to support an irrevocable proxy and shall revoke any and all prior proxies granted by such Stockholder. The power of attorney granted by each Stockholder herein is a durable power of attorney and shall survive the bankruptcy, death or incapacity of such Stockholder. The proxy and power of attorney granted hereunder shall terminate upon the termination of this Agreement.
5.    Representations and Warranties of the Stockholders. Each Stockholder hereby represents and warrants, severally and not jointly, to the Company that this Agreement has been duly and validly executed and delivered by such Stockholder and (assuming due authorization, execution and delivery of this Agreement by the Company) constitutes the valid and binding obligation of such Stockholder, enforceable against such Stockholder in accordance with its terms, except as enforcement may be limited by general principles of equity whether applied in a court of law or a court of equity and by bankruptcy, insolvency and similar laws affecting creditors’ rights and remedies generally.
6.    Termination. This Agreement shall terminate and be of no further force or effect whatsoever upon the Expiration Time without any action on the part of any party hereto.
7.    Miscellaneous.
(a)    Waiver. No waiver by any party hereto of any condition or any breach of any term or provision set forth in this Agreement shall be effective unless in writing and signed by each party hereto. The waiver of a condition or any breach of any term or provision of this Agreement shall not operate as, or
B-2


be construed to be, a waiver of any other previous or subsequent breach of any term or provision of this Agreement.
(b)    Severability. In the event that any term, provision, covenant or restriction set forth in this Agreement, or the application of any such term, provision, covenant or restriction to any person, entity or set of circumstances, shall be determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, unlawful, void or unenforceable to any extent, the remainder of the terms, provisions, covenants and restrictions set forth in this Agreement, and the application of such terms, provisions, covenants and restrictions to persons, entities or circumstances other than those as to which it is determined to be invalid, unlawful, void or unenforceable, shall remain in full force and effect, shall not be impaired, invalidated or otherwise affected and shall continue to be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.
(c)    Binding Effect; Assignment. This Agreement and all of the terms and provisions hereof shall be binding upon, and inure to the benefit of, the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns, but, except as otherwise specifically provided herein, neither this Agreement nor any of the rights, interests or obligations of the Stockholders may be assigned to any other Person without the prior written consent of the Company.
(d)    Amendments. This Agreement may not be modified, amended, altered or supplemented, except upon the execution and delivery of a written agreement executed by each of the parties hereto; provided that any amendment to an agreement between a specific party and the Company contained herein shall only require the consent of such parties and not all parties hereto.
(e)    Specific Performance; Injunctive Relief. Each of the parties hereto hereby acknowledge that (i) the representations, warranties, covenants and restrictions set forth in this Agreement are necessary, fundamental and required for the protection of the Company and to preserve for the Company the benefits of the Exchange, (ii) such covenants relate to matters which are of a special, unique, and extraordinary character that gives each such representation, warranty, covenant and restriction a special, unique, and extraordinary value, and (iii) a breach of any such representation, warranty, covenant or restriction, or any other term or provision of this Agreement, will result in irreparable harm and damages to the Company which cannot be adequately compensated by a monetary award. Accordingly, the Company and each Stockholder hereby expressly agree that in addition to all other remedies available at law or in equity, the Company shall be entitled to the immediate remedy of specific performance, a temporary and/or permanent restraining order, preliminary injunction, or such other form of injunctive or equitable relief as may be used by any court of competent jurisdiction to restrain or enjoin any of the parties hereto from breaching any representations, warranties, covenants or restrictions set forth in this Agreement, or to specifically enforce the terms and provisions hereof.
(f)    Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed, interpreted and enforced in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Delaware without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision, rule or principle (whether of the State of Delaware or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Delaware.
(g)    Entire Agreement. This Agreement and the other agreements referred to in this Agreement set forth the entire agreement and understanding of the Company and the Stockholders with respect to the subject matter hereof and thereof, and supersede all prior discussions, agreements and understandings between the Company and the Stockholders, both oral and written, with respect to the subject matter hereof and thereof.
