Ladies and Gentlemen:

 

Reference is made to the Agreement and Plan of Merger dated as of the date hereof (as amended, modified or supplemented from time to time, the “Merger Agreement”), by and among Concrete Pumping Holdings Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of Industrea (“Newco”), Industrea Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation (“Industrea”), Concrete Pumping Intermediate Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Newco (“Concrete Parent”), Concrete Pumping Merger Sub Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Concrete Parent (“Concrete Merger Sub”), Industrea Acquisition Merger Sub Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Newco (“Industrea Merger Sub”), Concrete Pumping Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”) and PGP Investors, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, in its capacity as the initial Holder Representative thereunder, pursuant to which, among other things, and on the terms and subject to the conditions of the Merger Agreement, Concrete Merger Sub will merge with and into the Company, with the Company surviving the merger and the Company will become an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Newco (the “Merger”). Capitalized terms used herein and not defined herein shall have the meanings set forth in the Merger Agreement.

 

Each of the undersigned stockholders of the Company (each, a “Rollover Holder”) hereby commits to effect, on the terms and subject to the conditions of this Rollover Agreement (this “Agreement”):

 

(a)        the contribution to Newco of a number of Common Shares or Preferred Shares (as applicable) held by such Rollover Holder (such Rollover Holder’s “Initial Rollover Shares”) equal to the quotient of (i) the amount set forth opposite such Rollover Holder’s name on Exhibit A attached hereto (such amount, such Rollover Holder’s “Initial Stock Rollover Amount”) divided by (ii) the Cash Per Fully-Diluted Common Share or Cash Per Fully-Diluted Preferred Share (as applicable) (assuming, for purposes of determining the Cash Per Fully-Diluted Common Share and Cash Per Fully-Diluted Preferred Share amounts, that the Aggregate Rollover Amount was $0); and

 

 

 

 

(b)        unless the Excess Redemption Amount (as defined below) is zero, the contribution to Newco of a number of additional Common Shares held by BBCP Investors, LLC (“Peninsula”) (such additional Common Shares, the “Additional Rollover Shares”) equal to the quotient of (i) the amount by which the gross cash proceeds available from the Trust Account at the Closing (taking into account all redemptions of shares of Industrea Class A Common Stock redeemed for cash in accordance with Industrea’s certificate of incorporation) is less than the Threshold Amount (such difference, if any, constituting the “Excess Redemption Amount” which Excess Redemption Amount shall be certified in writing to Peninsula and the Company by duly authorized officers of each of Newco and Industrea prior to the Rollover Closing), divided by (ii) the Cash Per Fully-Diluted Common Share (assuming, for purposes of determining the Cash Per Fully-Diluted Common Share amount, that the Aggregate Rollover Amount was $0). For purposes of this Agreement, the “Threshold Amount” shall mean $103,138,275, less the aggregate amount of any additional equity investment commitments (x) relating to one or more private placements to be consummated at or prior to Closing received by Newco and/or Industrea and approved in writing by the Company following the date hereof and prior to the Rollover Closing and (y) pursuant to any Rollover Agreement, the UK Share Purchase Agreement and UK Put/Call Agreement following the date hereof and prior to the Rollover Closing by any Person other than BBCPI and its Affiliates in excess of $50,961,725 in the aggregate.

 

The closing of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (the “Rollover Closing”) shall take place on the Closing Date immediately prior to the earlier to occur of the Concrete Effective Time and the Industrea Effective Time. At the Rollover Closing, each Rollover Holder shall contribute to Newco such Rollover Holder’s Initial Rollover Shares and Peninsula shall contribute to Newco the Additional Rollover Shares (if any) as described above (such aggregate Initial Rollover Shares and, in the case of Peninsula, the Additional Rollover Shares constituting such Rollover Holder’s “Rollover Shares”).

 

In exchange for the contribution of such Rollover Holder’s Rollover Shares, at the Rollover Closing:

 

(a)        Newco shall issue and deliver to such Rollover Holder a number of Newco Common Shares (rounded up to the nearest whole share) equal to the quotient of (x) such Rollover Holder’s Initial Stock Rollover Amount divided by (y) $10.20; and

 

(b)       unless the Excess Redemption Amount is zero, Newco shall issue and deliver to Peninsula a number of additional Newco Common Shares (rounded up to the nearest whole share) equal to the quotient of (x) the Excess Redemption Amount, divided by (y) $9.18 (such number of additional Newco Common Shares constituting “Additional Newco Common Shares”).

 

The Newco Common Shares described in the preceding clause (a) and, in the case of Peninsula, the Additional Newco Common Shares described in the preceding clause (b) (collectively, the “Issued Newco Shares”) will be delivered by Newco to the applicable Rollover Holders in book entry form, free and clear of any Liens or other restrictions (other than those arising under the Stockholders Agreement or state or federal securities laws), in the name of each such Rollover Holder (or its nominee in accordance with its delivery instructions) or to a custodian designated by such Rollover Holder, as applicable.

 

For the avoidance of doubt, except as set forth herein, no Rollover Holder shall be entitled to receive any portion of the Merger Consideration for such Rollover Holder’s Rollover Shares.

In exchange for the contribution of the Rollover Holders’ Rollover Shares to Newco, in addition to the Issued Newco Shares described above, each Rollover Holder shall have the right to receive: (A) such Rollover Holder’s Fully-Diluted Percentage in respect of its Rollover Shares of any positive Adjustment Amount payable in cash in accordance with Section 3.4(d) of the Merger Agreement, (B) such Rollover Holder’s Escrow Percentage in respect of its Rollover Shares of any distributions of Escrow Funds by the Escrow Agent to the Exchange Agent in accordance with the terms of the Escrow Agreement, and (C) such Rollover Holder’s portion in respect of its Rollover Shares of any Tax Refunds in accordance with Section 8.6(g) of the Merger Agreement.

 

At or prior to the Rollover Closing, each of the Rollover Holders, Industrea, Industrea Alexandria LLC and Newco shall execute and deliver to the other party a Stockholders Agreement in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B (the “Stockholders Agreement”).

 

Upon the written request of Peninsula delivered to Newco and Industrea at least three (3) Business Days prior to the date of the Closing, Industrea and Newco agree to take all corporate action necessary prior to Closing to have appointed to the Board of Directors of Newco (the “Board”), effective upon the Closing: (i) one individual designated by Peninsula to be included as a director in Class I (as described in Newco’s certificate of incorporation) if Peninsula beneficially owns more than five percent (5%) but not more than fifteen percent (15%) of the issued and outstanding shares of Newco Common Shares as of the Closing, (ii) two individuals designated by Peninsula, one to be included as a director in Class I and one to be included as a director in Class II (as described in Newco’s certificate of incorporation), if Peninsula beneficially owns more than fifteen percent (15%) but not more than twenty five percent (25%) of the issued and outstanding shares of Newco Common Shares as of the Closing, or (iii) three individuals designated by Peninsula, one to be included as a director in Class I, one to be included as a director in Class II and one to be included as a director in Class III (as described in Newco’s certificate of incorporation), if Peninsula beneficially owns more than twenty-five percent (25%) of the issued and outstanding shares of Newco Common Shares as of the Closing. Newco shall increase the number of directors of the Board effective as of the Closing as necessary to include the individuals designated by Peninsula pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence. The individuals designated by Peninsula pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence shall meet the conditions set forth in Section 4.4 of the Stockholders Agreement shall serve until the earlier of (A) his or her death, disability, resignation or removal and (B) his or her respective successor (which individual shall meet the conditions set forth in Section 4.4. of the Stockholders Agreement) is duly elected and qualified and shall be deemed a “Peninsula Director” and a “Peninsula Nominee.”

 

The consummation of the transactions described herein is subject to and conditioned upon (i) all conditions to the Mergers set forth in Article IX of the Merger Agreement having been satisfied not later than the time of the Rollover Closing or, to the extent not satisfied, having been waived by the Person or Persons entitled to waive any such condition, (ii) no suspension of the qualification of the Issued Newco Shares issued pursuant hereto for offering or sale or trading in any jurisdiction, or initiation or threatening of any proceedings for any of such purposes, shall have occurred, (iii) the concurrent funding of the Debt Financing (in accordance with the terms of the Debt Commitment Letters) and the Equity Financing (in accordance with the terms of the Subscription Agreements). This Agreement and the parties rights and obligations hereunder will automatically terminate and become null and void, and no party shall have any rights or obligations hereunder, upon the termination of the Merger Agreement.

 

3

 

 

Each Rollover Holder (solely as to itself and not on behalf of any other Rollover Holder) hereby (i) makes the representations and warranties, set forth in Annex A hereto, and (ii) agrees that it will become a party to, and be bound by, the Stockholders Agreement at the Rollover Closing in accordance with its terms.

 

Each of Newco and Industrea hereby (i) makes the representations and warranties set forth in Annex B hereto, and (ii) agrees that it will become a party to, and be bound by, the Stockholders Agreement at the Rollover Closing in accordance with its terms.

 

At or prior to the Rollover Closing, each Rollover Holder shall deliver to Newco (x) a duly executed certificate substantially in the form of Annex H to the Merger Agreement, and (y) all of the certificates for the Rollover Shares (if certificated), fully endorsed for transfer in blank.

 

The contribution of the Rollover Shares by each Rollover Holder to Newco in exchange for the consideration set forth herein (taken together with taken together with the Industrea Merger, the Argand Equity Investment and any other relevant contributions to Newco) in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, and the subsequent contribution of the Rollover Shares by Newco to Concrete Parent, are each intended to be treated as contributions governed by Section 351 of the Code, and each of Newco and the Rollover Holders shall report such transactions consistently with such intent. From time to time after the Rollover Closing, without further consideration, if requested by a Rollover Holder in writing, Newco shall promptly provide such Rollover Holder with a duly executed statement pursuant to Treasury Regulation Section 1.897-2(h) informing such Rollover Holder whether or not the Issued Newco Shares issued and delivered to such Rollover Holder constitute “United States real property interests” (and shall comply with the related notice requirements in Treasury Regulation Section 1.897-2(h)(2)).

 

The provisions of this Agreement, the Merger Agreement and the Stockholders Agreement contain the entire agreement of the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede any prior written or oral agreements or understandings of the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof. This Agreement is intended for the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns and is not for the benefit of, nor may any provision hereof be enforced by, any other person, except as otherwise set forth in the immediately following sentence. This Agreement may be enforced by the Company to cause the consummation of the contribution of the Rollover Shares and the issuance and delivery of the Issued Newco Shares in accordance with the terms hereof and, accordingly, the Company shall be a third party beneficiary hereof and entitled to an injunction or injunctions to prevent breaches or threatened breaches of this Agreement by the parties hereto.

 

This Agreement may be executed by facsimile or via email as a portable document format (.pdf) and in any number of counterparts, and each such counterpart shall be deemed to be an original instrument, but all such counterparts together shall constitute one agreement. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns, but shall not be assignable by any party hereto without the prior written consent of the other parties.

 

This Agreement, or any term or condition hereof, may be modified or waived only by a separate writing signed by each of the parties hereto. No provision of this Agreement may be amended, modified or waived without the prior written consent of the Company if such amendment, modification or waiver (i) reduces the number of Rollover Shares, or (ii) imposes new or additional conditions or otherwise expands, amends or modifies any of the conditions to the Closing in a manner that would reasonably be expected to (x) materially impair or delay the Closing (or satisfaction of the conditions to the Closing) or (y) adversely affect the ability of Newco or Industrea to enforce its rights against under this Agreement or any of the other definitive agreements with respect thereto. Each of the parties hereto waives any right it may have to trial by jury in respect of any litigation based on, arising out of, under or in connection with this Agreement or any course of conduct, course of dealing, verbal or written statement or action of any party hereto.

This Agreement, and all claims or causes of action based upon, arising out of, or related to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the Laws of the State of Delaware, without giving effect to principles or rules of conflict of laws to the extent such principles or rules would require or permit the application of Laws of another jurisdiction.

 

The parties hereto agree that they have been represented by counsel during the negotiation, drafting, preparation and execution of this Agreement and, therefore, waive the application of any law or rule of construction providing that ambiguities in an agreement or other document will be construed against the party drafting such agreement or document.

 

Each Rollover Holder acknowledges that Industrea is a blank check company with the powers and privileges to effect a merger, asset acquisition, reorganization or similar business combination involving Industrea and one or more businesses or assets. Rollover Holder further acknowledges that, as described in Industrea’s prospectus relating to its initial public offering dated July 26, 2017 (the “Prospectus”) available at www.sec.gov, substantially all of Industrea’s assets consist of the cash proceeds of Industrea’s initial public offering and private placements of its securities, and substantially all of those proceeds have been deposited in a trust account (the “Trust Account”) for the benefit of Industrea, its public stockholders and the underwriters of Industrea’s initial public offering. Each Rollover Holder acknowledges that, prior to the Closing, it does not have any right, title, interest or claim of any kind in or to any monies in the Trust Account, including, without limitation, any claim for indemnification and hereby waives any claim for monies in the Trust Account it may have in the future as a result of, or arising out of, this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby or any other transactions contemplated amongst the Rollover Holders, the Company, Newco, Industrea, Concrete Parent, Concrete Merger Sub and Industrea Merger Sub prior to the Closing and, prior to the Closing, will not seek recourse against the Trust Account for any reason whatsoever.

 

Any party hereto who is domiciled in a state that has adopted the community property system shall also cause his or her spouse, if any, to execute a spousal consent substantially in form attached hereto as Annex C simultaneously with the execution herewith.

SECTION 2
Registration Rights

 

2.1          Registration

 

(a)          Registration Requirements. The Company shall, not later than ninety (90) days after the Closing, prepare and file with the Commission a registration statement on Form S-3, or if Form S-3 is not available, Form S-1 or such other registration statement form that is available to the Company, and take all such other actions as are necessary to ensure that there is an effective “shelf” registration statement containing a prospectus that remains current covering (and to qualify under required U.S. state securities laws, if any) the offer and sale of all Registrable Securities by the Holders on a continuous or delayed basis pursuant to Rule 415 of the Securities Act (the registration statement, the “Resale Shelf Registration Statement”). The Company shall use reasonable best efforts to cause the Commission to declare the Resale Shelf Registration Statement effective as soon as possible thereafter but in any event within one hundred fifty (150) days of the Closing, and to remain effective and the prospectus contained therein current until all Holders cease to hold Registrable Securities. The Resale Shelf Registration Statement shall provide for any method or combination of methods of resale of Registrable Securities legally available to, and requested by, the Holders, and shall comply with the relevant provisions of the Securities Act and Exchange Act. At the time the Resale Shelf Registration Statement is declared effective, each Investor shall be named as a selling securityholder in the Resale Shelf Registration Statement and the related prospectus in such a manner as to permit such Investor to deliver such prospectus to purchasers of Registrable Securities in accordance with applicable law. If the Resale Shelf Registration Statement is on Form S-3 and ceases to be effective, then the Company shall, as soon as practicable but in any event no later than the earlier of (i) if the Company has filed with the Commission all periodic reports required to be filed under the Exchange Act, sixty (60) days after the date on which the Resale Shelf Registration Statement ceased to be effective and (ii) if the Company has not filed with the Commission all periodic reports required to be filed under the Exchange Act, sixty (60) days after the date on which the Company files such reports with the Commission, prepare and file with the Commission a post-effective amendment to the Resale Shelf Registration Statement or new registration statement on an available form covering all the Registrable Securities, and shall use its reasonable best efforts to cause such registration statement to be declared effective by the Commission within seventy-five (75) days after such filing and to maintain the effectiveness of such registration statement until all Holders cease to hold Registrable Securities. Upon effectiveness, such registration statement shall constitute the “Resale Shelf Registration Statement” for all purposes under this Agreement.

 

(b)          Request for Underwritten Takedowns. The Holders that qualify as Initiating Holders will be entitled to an unlimited number of Underwritten Takedowns with respect to their Registrable Securities. If the Company shall receive from Initiating Holders a written request signed by such Initiating Holders that the Company effect any Underwritten Takedown with respect to all or a part of the Registrable Securities (such request shall state the number of shares of Registrable Securities to be disposed of by such Initiating Holders), the Company will:

 

(i)          promptly, and in any event, within five (5) days after receiving such request, give written notice of the proposed Underwritten Takedown to all other Holders; and

 

(ii)         as soon as practicable, use its reasonable best efforts to cause the Commission to declare such Underwritten Takedown effective within sixty (60) days thereafter (including, without limitation, filing post-effective amendments, one or more prospectus supplements, appropriate qualifications under any applicable blue sky or other state securities laws, and appropriate compliance with the Securities Act) and to permit and facilitate the sale and distribution in an underwritten offering of all or such portion of such Registrable Securities as are specified in such request, together with all or such portion of the Registrable Securities of any Holder or Holders joining in such request as are specified in a written request received by the Company within five (5) days after such written notice from the Company is mailed or delivered.

 

 8 

 

 

(c)          Limitations on Underwritten Takedowns. The Company shall not be obligated to effect any Underwritten Takedown pursuant to this Section 2.1:

 

(i)          If the Initiating Holders, together with the holders of any other securities of the Company entitled to inclusion in such Underwritten Takedown, propose to sell Registrable Securities and such other securities (if any), the aggregate proceeds of which are anticipated to be less than $25,000,000; or

 

(ii)         In any particular jurisdiction in which the Company would be required to execute a general consent to service of process in effecting such registration, qualification, or compliance, unless the Company is already subject to service in such jurisdiction and except as may be required by the Securities Act; or

 

(iii)        Within one hundred twenty (120) days of the closing of any other Underwritten Takedown.

 

(d)          Other Shares. Any Underwritten Takedown may, subject to the provisions of Section 2.1(f), include Other Shares, and may include securities of the Company being sold for the account of the Company, provided that, any Other Shares or securities of the Company to be included in an Underwritten Takedown must be the subject of an effective shelf registration statement at the time the Company receives the request for an Underwritten Takedown from the Initiating Holders.

 

(e)          Underwriting; Cutback. If the Company shall request inclusion in any Underwritten Takedown of securities to be sold for its own account, or if other persons shall request inclusion of Other Shares in any Underwritten Takedown, the Initiating Holders shall, on behalf of all Holders, offer to include such securities in the underwriting and such offer shall be conditioned upon the participation of the Company or such other persons in such underwriting and the inclusion of the Company’s and such other person’s securities of the Company and their acceptance of the applicable provisions of this Section 2. The Company shall (together with all Holders and other persons proposing to distribute their securities through such underwriting) enter into an underwriting agreement in customary form with the representative of the underwriter or underwriters selected for such underwriting by the Company, which underwriters are reasonably acceptable to a majority-in-interest of the Initiating Holders. No Holder (or its permitted transferee or assignee under Section 2.11) 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 such Holder’s (or such transferee’s or assignee’s) authority to enter into such underwriting agreement and to sell, and its ownership of, the securities being registered on its behalf, its intended method of distribution and any other representation required by law.

 

 9 

 

 

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 2.1, if the underwriters, in good faith, advise the Initiating Holders in writing that marketing factors require a limitation on the number of Registrable Securities to be underwritten, the number of Registrable Securities and Other Shares that may be so included shall be allocated as follows: (i) first, among Initiating Holders requesting to include Registrable Securities in such Underwritten Takedown based on the pro rata percentage of Registrable Securities requested by such Initiating Holders to be included in such Underwritten Takedown (determined based on the aggregate number of Registrable Securities requested to be included in such Underwritten Takedown by each such Initiating Holder); (ii) second, among all other Holders requesting to include Registrable Securities in such Underwritten Takedown based on the pro rata percentage of Registrable Securities requested by such Holders to be included in such Underwritten Takedown (determined based on the aggregate number of Registrable Securities requested to be included in such Underwritten Takedown by each such Holder); (iii) third, to any holder of Preferred Stock Conversion Shares that has requested the inclusion of its Preferred Stock Conversion Shares pursuant to the Preferred Stock Subscription Agreement; (iv) fourth, to the Company, which the Company may allocate, at its discretion, for its own account, or for the account of other Holders or employees of the Company, and (v) fifth, to any Other Selling Stockholders requesting to include Other Shares in such registration statement.

 

If a person who has requested inclusion in such Underwritten Takedown as provided above does not agree to the terms of any such underwriting, such person shall be excluded therefrom by written notice to the Company, the underwriter or the Initiating Holders, and the securities so excluded shall also be withdrawn from the Underwritten Takedown. If Registrable Securities are so withdrawn from the Underwritten Takedown and if the number of shares to be included in such Underwritten Takedown was previously reduced as a result of marketing factors pursuant to this Section 2.1(e), then the Company shall offer to all Holders who have retained rights to include securities in the Underwritten Takedown the right to include additional Registrable Securities in the offering in an aggregate amount equal to the number of shares so withdrawn, with such shares to be allocated among such Holders requesting additional inclusion, as set forth above.

 

(f)          Deferral; Suspension. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, if the Company furnishes to the Holders a certificate (the “Suspension Notice”) signed by an executive officer of the Company stating that, in the good faith judgment of the Company, effecting a registration (whether by the filing of a Registration Statement or by taking any other action) or the offering or disposition of Registrable Securities thereunder (including, for the avoidance of doubt, through an Underwritten Takedown) should be postponed or suspended because such registration, offering or disposal would (1) materially impede, delay or interfere with a pending material acquisition, corporate reorganization, or other similar transaction involving the Company; (2) require premature disclosure of material non-public information that the Company has a bona fide business purpose for preserving as confidential; or (3) render the Company unable to comply with requirements under the Securities Act or Exchange Act, then by delivery of the Suspension Notice to the Holders, the Company may so postpone effecting a registration or require the Holders to refrain from offering or disposing of Registrable Securities for a period of not more than thirty (30) days, and, provided further, that the Company shall not suspend usage of a registration statement in this manner more than twice in any twelve (12) month period or at any time within thirty (30) days of the end of the immediately preceding suspension period. The Company shall give written notice to the Holders as promptly as practicable following the date that such suspension is no longer necessary.

2.2          Peninsula Holder Underwritten Takedown. If the number of shares issued to the Peninsula Holder pursuant to the terms of the Rollover Agreement to which it is a party exceeds 882,353 shares (the “Peninsula Threshold”), then for a period of two years following the one hundred eighty (180)-day anniversary of the Closing, the Peninsula Holder shall have the right to cause the Company to effect one (1) Underwritten Takedown (a “Peninsula Takedown”) (which, for the avoidance of doubt, will be on whatever registration statement form is then available to the Company to serve as the Resale Shelf Registration Statement, including a registration statement on Form S-1 to the extent that Form S-3 is not then available) in which the Peninsula Holder shall have the right to include the Peninsula Holder’s Registrable Securities in excess of the Peninsula Threshold in such Underwritten Takedown as a matter of priority over all other Holders and the Company. If the Company receives a written request for a Peninsula Takedown, then, subject to Section 2.1(c)(ii) and (iii), the Company shall provide the notices and take the actions required by Section 2.1(b)(i) and (ii) of this Agreement. Without the prior written consent of the Peninsula Holder, no stockholder of the Company (other than the Peninsula Holder) may include securities in an offering pursuant to a Peninsula Takedown. If the underwriters, in good faith, advise the Peninsula Holder in writing that marketing factors require a limitation on the number of Registrable Securities to be underwritten, the number of Registrable Securities that may be so included in the Peninsula Takedown shall be allocated as follows: (i) first, to the Peninsula Holder to include Registrable Securities in such Underwritten Takedown in excess of the Peninsula Threshold; and (ii) second, to the Company, which the Company may allocate, at its discretion, for its own account or, with the prior written consent of the Peninsula Holder, for the account of other Holders who have requested to include their Registrable Securities in such offering; provided, that if (A) on the date on which the Peninsula Holder provides a written request for an initial Peninsula Takedown the Peninsula Holder beneficially owns at least 2,625,272[1] shares of Company Common Stock that were issued under its Rollover Agreement and (B) less than fifty percent (50%) of the Registrable Securities of the Peninsula Holder requested to be registered in the Peninsula Takedown are included in such initial Underwritten Takedown effected under this Section 2.2, then such Underwritten Takedown shall not be considered a Peninsula Takedown for purposes of this Agreement; provided further that in no event shall the Company (1) be required to effect a Peninsula Takedown within six (6) months after the closing date of any other Underwritten Takedown effected under this Section 2.2, and (2) be required to effect more than two (2) Underwritten Takedowns under this Section 2.2. In connection with any Peninsula Takedown, Argand Investor and its Affiliates shall, at the Peninsula Holder’s written request, sign a customary lockup agreement whereby Argand Investor and its Affiliates will agree to refrain from effecting any Transfer of Company Common Stock or other securities of the Company until sixty (60) days after the conclusion of the Peninsula Takedown. The Peninsula Holder shall have the right to terminate or withdraw its request for an Underwritten Takedown (and in such case shall not be deemed to have exercised its right to have caused the Company to effect a Peninsula Takedown) at any time prior to the effectiveness of such registration.

2.3          Company Registration

 

(a)          Company Registration/Underwritten Offering. If the Company shall determine to (1) register any of its securities either for its own account or the account of a security holder or holders (or a combination of the foregoing) during a period in which a Resale Shelf Registration Statement covering a Holder’s Registrable Securities is not then effective, other than: a registration pursuant to Sections 2.1 or 2.2; a registration relating to the shares of Company Common Stock underlying the Public Warrants; a registration relating solely to employee benefit plans, a registration relating to the offer and sale of non-convertible debt securities, a registration relating to a corporate reorganization or other Rule 145 transaction; or a registration on any registration form that does not permit secondary sales, or (2) effect an underwritten public offering of securities, either for its own account or the account of a security holder or holders (or a combination of the foregoing), the Company will:

 

(i)          promptly give written notice (in any event not later than twenty (20) days prior to the filing of the registration statement or preliminary prospectus to which such offering relates) of the proposed registration or offering, as applicable, to all Holders; and

 

(ii)         include in such registration or offering, as applicable, (and any related qualification under blue sky laws or other compliance), except as set forth in Section 2.2(b) below, and in any underwriting involved therein, all of such Registrable Securities as are specified in a written request or requests made by any Holder or Holders received by the Company within ten (10) days after receipt of such written notice from the Company. Such written request may specify all or a part of a Holder’s Registrable Securities.

 

(b)          Underwriting; Cutback. If the registration or offering of which the Company gives notice is for an underwritten public offering, the Company shall so advise the Holders (and include the names of the proposed underwriters) as a part of the written notice given pursuant to Section 2.2(a)(i). All Holders proposing to distribute their securities through such underwriting shall (together with the Company and the Other Selling Stockholders with registration rights to participate therein) enter into an underwriting agreement in customary form with the representative of the underwriter or underwriters selected by the Company. No Holder (or its permitted transferee or assignee under Section 2.11) 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 such Holder’s (or such transferee’s or assignee’s) authority to enter into such underwriting agreement and to sell, and its ownership of, the securities being registered on its behalf, its intended method of distribution and any other representation required by law.

 

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 2.2, if the underwriters in good faith advise the Company and the Holders of Registrable Securities participating in the offering in writing that marketing factors require a limitation on the number of shares to be underwritten, the number of Registrable Securities to be included in the registration and underwriting shall be reduced, subject to the limitations set forth below. The Company shall so advise all holders of securities requesting registration, and the number of shares entitled to be included in the registration and underwriting shall be allocated (1) if the underwritten offering is for the Company’s account, (m) first, to the Company; (n) second, to the Holders requesting to include Registrable Securities in such offering based on the pro rata percentage of Registrable Securities requested to be included by such Holders; (o) third, to any holder of Preferred Stock Conversion Shares that has requested the inclusion of its Preferred Stock Conversion Shares pursuant to the Preferred Stock Subscription Agreement; and (iv) fourth, to the Other Selling Stockholders, if any, requesting to include Other Shares in such underwritten offering and (2) if the underwritten offering is for the account of Other Selling Stockholders, then (x) first, to the Other Selling Stockholders, (y) second, to the Holders requesting to include Registrable Securities in such offering based on the pro rata percentage of Registrable Securities requested to be included by such Holders; and (z) third, to the Company.

If a person who has requested inclusion in such registration as provided above does not agree to the terms of any such underwriting, such person shall be excluded therefrom by written notice to the Company and the underwriter. Any Registrable Securities or Other Shares excluded or withdrawn from such underwriting shall be withdrawn from such registration. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, the Company shall be responsible for the Registration Expenses prior to any such withdrawal.

 

(c)          Right to Terminate Registration. The Company shall have the right to terminate or withdraw any registration initiated by it under this Section 2.2 prior to the effectiveness of such registration whether or not any Holder has elected to include securities in such registration.

At its sole expense, the Company will:

 18 

 

 

(c)          Each party entitled to indemnification under this Section 2.7 (the “Indemnified Party”) shall (i) give notice to the party required to provide indemnification (the “Indemnifying Party”) promptly after such Indemnified Party has actual knowledge of any claim as to which indemnity may be sought  (provided, that any delay or failure to so notify the indemnifying party shall relieve the Indemnifying Party of its obligations hereunder only to the extent, if at all, that it is actually and materially prejudiced by reason of such delay or failure), and (ii) permit the Indemnifying Party to assume the defense of such claim or any litigation resulting therefrom; provided that counsel for the Indemnifying Party, who shall conduct the defense of such claim or any litigation resulting therefrom, shall be approved by the Indemnified Party (whose approval shall not be unreasonably withheld), and the Indemnified Party may participate in such defense at such party’s expense unless (w) the Indemnifying Party has agreed in writing to pay such fees or expenses, (x) the Indemnifying Party shall have failed to assume the defense of such claim within a reasonable time after receipt of notice of such claim from the Indemnified Party hereunder and employ counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Party, (y) the Indemnified Party has reasonably concluded (based upon advice of its counsel) that there may be legal defenses available to it or other indemnified parties that are different from or in addition to those available to the Indemnifying Party, or (z) in the reasonable judgment of any such person (based upon advice of its counsel) a conflict of interest may exist between such person and the Indemnifying Party with respect to such claims (in which case, if the person notifies the Indemnifying Party in writing that such Person elects to employ separate counsel at the expense of the Indemnifying Party, the Indemnifying Party shall not have the right to assume the defense of such claim on behalf of such person). No Indemnifying Party, in the defense of any such claim or litigation, shall, except with the consent of each Indemnified Party, consent to entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement that does not include as an unconditional term thereof the giving by the claimant or plaintiff to such Indemnified Party of a release from all liability in respect to such claim or litigation. Each Indemnified Party shall furnish such information regarding itself or the claim in question as an Indemnifying Party may reasonably request in writing and as shall be reasonably required in connection with defense of such claim and litigation resulting therefrom.

 

(d)          If the indemnification provided for in this Section 2.7 is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unavailable to an Indemnified Party with respect to any loss, liability, claim, damage, or expense referred to herein, then the Indemnifying Party, in lieu of indemnifying such Indemnified Party hereunder, shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by such Indemnified Party as a result of such loss, liability, claim, damage, or expense in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the Indemnifying Party on the one hand and of the Indemnified Party on the other in connection with the statements or omissions that resulted in such loss, liability, claim, damage, or expense as well as any other relevant equitable considerations. The relative fault of the Indemnifying Party and of the Indemnified Party shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether the untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or the omission to state a material fact relates to information supplied by the Indemnifying Party or by the Indemnified Party and the parties’ relative intent, knowledge, access to information, and opportunity to correct or prevent such statement or omission. No person or entity will be required under this Section 2.7(d) to contribute any amount in excess of the net proceeds from the offering received by such person or entity, except in the case of fraud or willful misconduct by such person or entity. No person or entity guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Securities Act) will be entitled to contribution from any person or entity who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation.

The Company further covenants that it shall take such further action as any Holder may reasonably request to enable such Holder to sell from time to time shares of Company Common Stock held by such Holder without registration under the Securities Act within the limitation of the exemptions provided by Rule 144, including providing any legal opinions and cooperating with the Holders to cause the transfer agent to remove any restrictive legend on certificates evidencing Registrable Securities).

Any waiver, permit, consent or approval of any kind or character on the part of any party of any breach or default under this Agreement, or any waiver on the part of any party of any provisions or conditions of this Agreement, must be in writing and shall be effective only to the extent specifically set forth in such writing. All remedies, either under this Agreement or by law or otherwise afforded to any party to this Agreement, shall be cumulative and not alternative.

 

 27 

 

 

5.8          Remedies. Each holder of Registrable Securities, in addition to being entitled to exercise all rights granted by law, including recovery of damages, shall be entitled to specific performance of its rights under this Agreement. The Company acknowledges that monetary damages would not be adequate compensation for any loss incurred by reason of a breach by it of the provisions of this Agreement and the Company hereby agrees to waive the defense in any action for specific performance that a remedy at law would be adequate.

 

5.9          Severability. If any provision of this Agreement becomes or is declared by a court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, unenforceable or void, portions of such provision, or such provision in its entirety, to the extent necessary, shall be severed from this Agreement, and such court will replace such illegal, void or unenforceable provision of this Agreement with a valid and enforceable provision that will achieve, to the extent possible, the same economic, business and other purposes of the illegal, void or unenforceable provision. The balance of this Agreement shall be enforceable in accordance with its terms.

 

5.10        Titles and Subtitles. The titles and subtitles used in this Agreement are used for convenience only and are not to be considered in construing or interpreting this Agreement. All references in this Agreement to sections, paragraphs and exhibits shall, unless otherwise provided, refer to sections and paragraphs hereof and exhibits attached hereto.

5.12        Telecopy Execution and Delivery. A facsimile, telecopy, portable document format (“PDF”) or other reproduction of this Agreement may be executed by one or more parties hereto and delivered by such party by facsimile, PDF or any similar electronic transmission device pursuant to which the signature of or on behalf of such party can be seen. Such execution and delivery shall be considered valid, binding and effective for all purposes. At the request of any party hereto, all parties hereto agree to execute and deliver an original of this Agreement as well as any facsimile, telecopy or other reproduction hereof.

 

5.13        Further Assurances. Each party hereto agrees to execute and deliver, by the proper exercise of its corporate, limited liability company, partnership or other powers, all such other and additional instruments and documents and do all such other acts and things as may be necessary to more fully effectuate this Agreement.

 

5.14        Attorneys’ Fees. In the event that any suit or action is instituted to enforce any provision in this Agreement, the prevailing party in such dispute shall be entitled to recover from the losing party such reasonable fees and expenses of attorneys and accountants, which shall include, without limitation, all fees, costs and expenses of appeals.

 

5.15        Aggregation of Stock. All securities held or acquired by affiliated entities of or persons shall be aggregated together for purposes of determining the availability of any rights under this Agreement.

 

 28 

 

 

5.16        Jury Trial Consent to Jurisdiction. Any judicial proceeding brought with respect to this Agreement must be brought in any court of competent jurisdiction in the State of Delaware, and, by execution and delivery of this Agreement, each party (a) accepts, generally and unconditionally, the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts and any related appellate court, and irrevocably agrees to be bound by any judgment rendered thereby in connection with this Agreement; and (b) irrevocably waives any objection it may now or hereafter have as to the venue of any such suit, action or proceeding brought in such a court or that such court is an inconvenient forum. Nothing in this Section, however, shall affect the right of any party to serve legal process in any other manner permitted by law or at equity. Each party agrees that a final judgment in any action or proceeding so brought shall be conclusive and may be enforced by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by law or at equity. EACH OF THE PARTIES HERETO HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ANY AND ALL RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING (WHETHER SOUNDING IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE) ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT.

 

5.17        No Recourse. This Agreement may only be enforced against, and any claim or cause of action based upon, arising out of, or related to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby may only be brought against, the entities that are expressly named as parties hereto and then only with respect to the specific obligations set forth herein with respect to such party. Except to the extent a named party to this Agreement (and then only to the extent of the specific obligations undertaken by such named party in this Agreement and not otherwise), no past, present or future director, officer, employee, incorporator, member, partner, stockholder, Affiliate, agent, attorney, advisor or representative or Affiliate of any of the foregoing shall have any liability (whether in contract, tort, equity or otherwise) for any one or more of the covenants, agreements or other obligations or liabilities of any one or more of the Company, Industrea or any Investor or Holder under this Agreement (whether for indemnification or otherwise) or of or for any claim based on, arising out of, or related to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby.

Annex A

 

ROLLOVER HOLDER REPRESENTATIONS

 

This Annex A is incorporated into that certain Rollover Agreement (the “Rollover Agreement”) to which this Annex A is attached. Capitalized terms used herein but not defined herein have the respective meanings given them in the Rollover Agreement. The Newco Shares to be acquired by the Rollover Holder pursuant to the Rollover Agreement are referred to in this Annex A as the “Investment.”

 

I.           Rollover Holder Awareness

 

The Rollover Holder has been furnished with and has read the Rollover Agreement, the Merger Agreement and the Stockholders Agreement. The Rollover Holder is aware and acknowledges that:

 

(1)         Newco has only recently been formed and has no financial or operating history.

 

(2)         There are substantial risks incident to the Investment.

 

(3)         No federal or state agency has made any finding or determination as to the fairness of the Investment.

 

(4)         The Rollover Holder has had an opportunity to consult with his own tax advisor regarding all United States federal, state, local and foreign tax considerations applicable to the Investment. None of Newco or any of its Affiliates, employees, agents, members, equity holders, directors, officers, representatives or consultants, assume any responsibility for the tax consequences to the Rollover Holder of the acquisition or ownership of the Investment; provided, that Newco, Industrea and Concrete Parent shall comply with their obligations under the Merger Agreement and under this Agreement.

 

(5)         The Rollover Holder may be required to bear the economic risk of the Investment for an indefinite period of time because the Investment has not been registered for sale under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and therefore cannot be sold or otherwise transferred unless either the Investment is subsequently registered under the Securities Act, or an exemption from such registration is available, and the Investment cannot be sold or otherwise transferred unless it is registered under applicable state securities or an exemption from such registration is available.

 

(6)         The Rollover Holder’s right to transfer the Investment will be restricted by the terms of the Stockholders Agreement.

 

II.          Additional Representations and Warranties of the Rollover Holder

 

(1)         The Rollover Holder is empowered, authorized and qualified to comply with its obligations contained in the Rollover Agreement and the Stockholders Agreement. Each of the Rollover Agreement and the Stockholders Agreement has been, or as of the Rollover Closing will be, duly executed and delivered on behalf of the Rollover Holder and each constitutes, or as of the Rollover Closing will constitute, the valid and binding agreement of the Rollover Holder, enforceable against the Rollover Holder in accordance with its terms.

 

(2)         The execution, delivery and performance of each of the Rollover Agreement and the Stockholders Agreement by the Rollover Holder does not and will not result in a breach of any of the terms of, or constitute a default under, any agreement to which the Rollover Holder is a party or by which the Rollover Holder is bound, or require any authorization or approval under or pursuant to the foregoing, or violate any law, order or decree to which the Rollover Holder is subject, which default or violation would impair the Rollover Holder’s ability to carry out its obligations under any of the Rollover Agreement and the Stockholders Agreement.

 

 

 

 

(3)         The Rollover Holder is not acquiring the Investment as a result of any advertisement, article, notice or other communication published in any newspaper, magazine or similar media or broadcast over television or radio, any seminar or meeting, or any solicitation of a subscription by a person not previously known to the Rollover Holder in connection with investments in securities generally.

 

(4)         The Rollover Holder is an “Accredited Investor” (as defined in Rule 501 promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended).

 

(5)         The Rollover Holder has been furnished all materials relating to Newco and the Investment that the Rollover Holder has requested and has been afforded the opportunity to ask questions and receive answers concerning the terms and conditions of the offering and obtain any additional information regarding the Investment which Newco possesses or can acquire without unreasonable effort or expense.

 

(6)         Representatives of Newco have answered all inquiries that the Rollover Holder has made of them concerning Newco and their Affiliates, or any other matters relating to the formation and proposed operation of Newco and the offering and sale of the Investment. The Rollover Holder acknowledges that none of Newco or any Affiliate thereof has rendered or will render any investment advice or securities valuation advice to the Rollover Holder, and that the Rollover Holder is neither subscribing for nor acquiring the Investment in reliance upon, or with the expectation of, any such advice.

 

(7)         The Rollover Holder has not been furnished any offering literature with respect to the Investment or Newco. In addition, no representations or warranties have been made to the Rollover Holder with respect to the Investment or Newco, and the Rollover Holder has not relied upon any such representation or warranty in making this subscription.

 

(8)         The Rollover Holder has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters that the Rollover Holder is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of the Investment and of making an informed investment decision with respect thereto.

 

(9)         The Rollover Holder is relying on its own investigation and analysis in making the Investment, and has consulted its own legal, tax, financial and accounting advisors to determine the merits and risks thereof.

 

(10)       The Rollover Holder is not relying on any due diligence investigation that Industrea Acquisition Corp. and/or its Affiliates and advisors may have conducted with respect to the Company or any of its Affiliates. Except to the extent set forth in Annex B of the Rollover Agreement, none of Newco, Industrea Acquisition Corp. and/or its Affiliates, nor any of their respective current or former equity holders, members, managers, partners, officers, directors, employees, affiliates or advisors (i) makes any representation or warranty as to the Information nor represents or warrants the Information as being all-inclusive or to contain all information that may be desirable or required in order to properly evaluate the Investment or (ii) will have any liability with respect to any use or reliance upon any of the Information.

 

(11)       The Rollover Holder is able to bear the economic risks of the Investment and consequently, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, is able to hold the Investment for an indefinite period of time and has sufficient net worth to sustain a loss of the entire Investment in the event such loss should occur.

 

2

 

 

(12)       The Rollover Holder is acquiring the Investment for the Rollover Holder’s own account as principal for investment purposes and not with a view to the distribution or sale thereof, subject to any requirement of law that its property at all times be within its control.

 

(13)       The Rollover Holder recognizes that Newco’s issuance and sale of the Investment to the Rollover Holder will be based upon the Rollover Holder’s representations, warranties and covenants set forth above. All representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Rollover Agreement (including this Annex A) shall survive the consummation of the transactions set forth therein.

 

III.         Certain Restrictions on Transferability

 

The Rollover Holder acknowledges and agrees that the following restrictions and limitations are applicable to any resale or other transfer of the Investment:

 

(1)         The Investment shall not be sold or otherwise transferred to the extent such sale or transfer is restricted by the Stockholders Agreement and, if so restricted, may only be sold or transferred if the applicable provisions set forth in the Stockholders Agreement are satisfied.

 

(2)         The Investment shall not be sold or otherwise transferred unless in compliance with all applicable securities laws.

 

3

This Annex B is incorporated into that certain Rollover Agreement (the “Rollover Agreement”) to which this Annex B is attached. Capitalized terms used herein but not defined herein have the respective meanings given them in the Rollover Agreement.

 

(1) Each of Newco Industrea is empowered, authorized and qualified to comply with its obligations contained in the Rollover Agreement and the Stockholders Agreement. Each of the Rollover Agreement and the Stockholders Agreement has been, or as of the Rollover Closing will be, duly executed and delivered on behalf of Newco and Industrea and each constitutes, or as of the Rollover Closing will constitute, the valid and binding agreement of Newco and Industrea, enforceable against Newco and Industrea in accordance with its terms.

 

(2) The execution, delivery and performance of each of the Rollover Agreement and the Stockholders Agreement by Newco and Industrea does not and will not (i) result in a breach of any of the terms of, or constitute a default under, any agreement to which Newco or Industrea is a party or by which any of its properties or assets are bound, or require any authorization or approval under or pursuant to the foregoing, or violate any law, order or decree to which Newco or Industrea is subject, which default or violation would impair Newco’s ability to carry out its obligations under any of the Rollover Agreement and the Stockholders Agreement or (ii) require Newco or Industrea to obtain any consent, waiver, authorization or order of, give any notice to, or make any filing or registration with, any Governmental Authority or self-regulatory organization (including The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”)), other than (x)  the filing of a Notice of Exempt Offering of Securities on Form D with the SEC under Regulation D of the Securities Act and those required by Nasdaq.

 

(3) Upon consummation of the Rollover Closing, the Issued Newco Shares, when issued and delivered pursuant to the terms of the Rollover Agreement, will be validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable and will not have been issued in violation of any preemptive rights created under Newco’s certificate of incorporation or the Delaware General Corporation Law. Upon consummation of the Rollover Closing, the Issued Newco Shares will be approved for listing, subject only to official notice of the issuance, on Nasdaq under the symbol “BBCP”.

 

(4) As of the date hereof, the authorized share capital of Industrea consists of 200,000,000 shares of Class A Common Stock, 20,000,000 shares of Class B common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Class B Common Stock” and together with the Class A Common Stock, “Common Stock”), and 1,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Preferred Stock”). As of the date hereof: (i) 23,000,000 shares of Class A Common Stock, 5,750,000 shares of Class B Common Stock and no shares of Preferred Stock are issued and outstanding; (ii) 34,100,000 warrants, each exercisable to purchase one share of Class A Common Stock at $11.50 per share (“Warrants”), are issued and outstanding, including 11,100,000 private placement warrants; and (iii) no shares of Common Stock are subject to issuance upon exercise of outstanding options. No Warrants are exercisable on or prior to the Closing. As of the date hereof Industrea Alexandria LLC is, and as of immediately prior to the Rollover Closing Industrea Alexandria LLC will be, the record and beneficial owner of no less than 5,750,000 shares of Class B Common Stock. All (i) issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock have been duly authorized and validly issued, are fully paid and are non-assessable and are not subject to preemptive rights and (ii) outstanding Warrants have been duly authorized and validly issued, are fully paid and are not subject to preemptive rights. Except as set forth above and pursuant to the Subscription Agreements (as defined in the Merger Agreement), the other Rollover Agreements (as defined in the Merger Agreement), the UK Put/Call Agreement and the Merger Agreement, there are no outstanding options, warrants or other rights to subscribe for, purchase or acquire from Industrea or Newco any shares of Common Stock or other equity interests in Industrea or Newco (collectively, “Equity Interests”) or securities convertible into or exchangeable or exercisable for Equity Interests. As of the date hereof, other than with respect to Newco, Concrete Parent, Concrete Merger Sub, and Industrea Merger Sub, Industrea has no subsidiaries and does not own, directly or indirectly, interests or investments (whether equity or debt) in any person, whether incorporated or unincorporated. There are not any stockholder agreements, voting trusts or other agreements or understandings to which Industrea or Newco is a party or by which either is bound relating to the voting of any Equity Interests, other than (A) the letter agreements entered into by Industrea in connection with Industrea’s initial public offering on August 1, 2017 pursuant to which Industrea Alexandria LLC and Industrea’s executive officers and independent directors agreed to vote in favor of any proposed Business Combination (as defined therein), which includes the Transaction, and (B) as contemplated by the Merger Agreement.

 

4

 

 

(5) Except for such matters as have not had and would not be reasonably likely to have a material adverse effect on Industrea’s or Newco’s ability to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby, including the issuance and sale of the Shares, as of the date hereof, there is no (i) suit, action, proceeding or arbitration before a governmental authority or arbitrator pending, or, to the knowledge of Industrea or Newco, threatened against Industrea or Newco or (ii) judgment, decree, injunction, ruling or order of any governmental authority or arbitrator outstanding against Industrea or Newco.

 

(6) Assuming the accuracy of the Rollover Holders’ representations and warranties set forth in Annex A, no registration under the Securities Act is required for the offer and issuance of the Issued Newco Shares by Newco to the Rollover Holders.

 

(7) Neither Newco nor any person acting on its behalf has engaged or will engage in any form of general solicitation or general advertising (within the meaning of Regulation D) in connection with any offer or sale of the Issued Newco Shares.

 

(8) Newco is not acquiring the Rollover Shares as a result of any advertisement, article, notice or other communication published in any newspaper, magazine or similar media or broadcast over television or radio, any seminar or meeting, or any solicitation of a subscription by a person not previously known to Newco in connection with investments in securities generally.

 

(9) Newco is an “Accredited Investor” (as defined in Rule 501 promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended).

 

(10) Newco is able to bear the economic risks of an investment in the Rollover Shares and consequently, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, is able to hold the Rollover Shares for an indefinite period of time and has sufficient net worth to sustain a loss of the entire investment in the Rollover Shares in the event such loss should occur.

 

(11) Newco is acquiring the Rollover Shares for Newco’s own account as principal for investment purposes and not with a view to the distribution or sale thereof, subject to any requirement of law that its property at all times be within its control.

 

5
