(the Company).

See Plan of Distribution beginning on page 8 for more information.

In order to fund working capital and for other general corporate purposes, on August 6, 2018, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the Purchase Agreement) with Golden Harbor Ltd. and North Sound Trading, LP, pursuant to which the Company issued and sold to Golden Harbor Ltd. and North Sound Trading, LP, in a private placement transaction (the Private Placement), an aggregate of 12,062,000 immediately separable units (the Units), with each Unit consisting of (a) one share of Common Stock and (b) a warrant to acquire 0.35 of a share of Common Stock (each a 2018 Warrant and, collectively, the 2018 Warrants), for a purchase price of $1.63 per Unit. The Purchase Agreement further granted to the selling stockholders certain appointment and nomination rights related to the Companys board of directors (the Board).
In connection with the Private Placement, the Company and the selling stockholders entered into a Registration Rights Agreement, pursuant to which the Company agreed to prepare and file a registration statement with the Commission to register the sale or other disposition of the shares of our Common Stock held by the selling stockholders and the shares of our Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the 2018 Warrants and to use commercially reasonable efforts to cause the Commission to declare the registration statement effective.
In December 2018, the selling stockholders acquired, in a privately negotiated transaction, an aggregate of 11,473,799 shares of Common Stock from another of the Companys stockholders (the Secondary Purchases).

We maintain an Internet website at www.inseego.com. We have included our website address in this prospectus solely as an inactive textual reference. We do not incorporate the information on, or accessible through, our website into this prospectus, and you should not consider any information on or accessible through our website as part of this prospectus.
Investing in shares of our Common Stock involves a high degree of risk. You should carefully consider the risks described under Risk Factors in any applicable prospectus supplement and in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, or any updates in our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, together with all of the other information appearing in or incorporated by reference into this prospectus and any applicable prospectus supplement, before deciding whether to purchase any of the Common Stock being offered. Our business, financial condition or results of operations could be materially adversely affected by any of these risks. In addition, the trading price of shares of our Common Stock could decline due to any of these risks, and you may lose all or part of your investment.
We will receive no proceeds from the sale of the Common Stock by the selling stockholders. The selling stockholders will pay any underwriting discounts and commissions and any similar expenses they incur in disposing of the Common Stock. We will bear all other costs, fees and expenses incurred in effecting the registration of the Common Stock covered by this prospectus. These may include, without limitation, all registration, qualification and printing fees, listing fees, fees and expenses incident to any required review by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. and fees and expenses of our counsel and accountants.
This prospectus relates to the resale by the selling stockholders named below, from time to time, of up to 13,973,799 shares of our Common Stock, including 11,473,799 shares of our currently issued and outstanding Common Stock and up to 2,500,000 shares of our Common Stock issuable to the selling stockholders upon exercise of the Warrants as described above under the heading Prospectus Summary-Private Placement.
We do not know when or in what amounts the selling stockholders may sell or otherwise dispose of the shares covered hereby. The selling stockholders might not sell any, or may only sell a portion, of the shares covered by this prospectus or may sell or dispose of some or all of such shares other than pursuant to this prospectus. Because the selling stockholders may not sell or otherwise dispose of some or all of the shares covered by this prospectus and because there are currently no agreements, arrangements or understandings with respect to the sale or other disposition of any of such shares, we cannot estimate the number of the shares that will be held by the selling stockholders after completion of the offering. For purposes of the table below, we have assumed that the selling stockholders will have sold all of the shares covered by this prospectus, and all the shares covered by the prospectus on Form 424B3 (12,212,775 shares owned by Golden Harbor Ltd. and 8,580,925 shares owned by North Sound Trading, LP) filed with the Commission on February 12, 2019, upon completion of the applicable offering.
On August 6, 2018, in accordance with the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Board appointed James Avery, a representative of Golden Harbor Ltd., and Brian Miller, a representative of North Sound Trading, LP, to serve as members of the Board.
Except as described above, the selling stockholders have not held any position or office or had any other material relationship with us or any of our predecessors or affiliates within the past three years other than as a result of the ownership of our securities. We believe that: (a) no selling stockholder is a broker-dealer or affiliate of a broker-dealer; (b) no selling stockholder has any direct or indirect agreements or understandings with any person to distribute their shares; and (c) unless otherwise indicated in the footnotes below, each selling stockholder has sole voting and investment power with respect to all shares beneficially owned.
In recognition of the fact that the selling stockholders may wish to be legally permitted to sell the securities when they deem appropriate, we agreed with the selling stockholders to file a registration statement to register the resale of the securities. We also have agreed to use commercially reasonable efforts to keep the registration statement, of which this prospectus constitutes a part, effective until the earlier of such time as: (a) all of the securities covered by such registration statement have been disposed of or transferred by the selling stockholders in accordance with such registration statement; (b) all of the securities covered by such registration statement have been previously sold or transferred pursuant to Rule 144 under the Securities Act; or (c) with respect to a selling stockholder, such selling stockholder ceases to own at least 5% of our total then-issued and outstanding Common Stock.
The table below presents information regarding the selling stockholders and the shares of our Common Stock that they may sell or otherwise dispose of from time to time under this prospectus. The percentage of beneficial ownership is based upon 78,733,610 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding as of May 3, 2019. Beneficial ownership is determined under Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act and generally includes voting or investment power with respect to securities and includes any securities that grant the selling stockholders the right to acquire Common Stock within 60 days of May 3, 2019. Information in the table below is based on information provided by or on behalf of the selling stockholders and on the Schedule 13D/A filed by Golden Harbor Ltd. on March 29, 2019 and the Schedule 13D/A filed by North Sound Trading, LP on March 29, 2019. Since the date on which the selling stockholders provided us with the information below, the selling stockholders
may have sold, transferred or otherwise disposed of some or all of their shares in transactions exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act.

The number of beneficially owned shares does not include any Warrant Shares because, per the terms of the Warrants, the selling stockholders do not have the right to acquire such Warrant Shares within 60 days of May 3, 2019.
The maximum number of shares consists of the aggregate of the number of shares of Common Stock acquired by the selling stockholders in the Secondary Purchases, respectively, and the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrants held by the selling stockholders, respectively. In addition to the shares set forth in the table, the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrants may be adjusted in certain circumstances, including stock splits, dividends, distributions or reclassifications, and mergers, consolidations, statutory share exchanges or other similar transactions.
For purposes of this table, the Company assumes that all of the shares covered by this prospectus and all the shares covered by the prospectus on Form 424B3 (12,212,775 shares owned by Golden Harbor Ltd. and 8,580,925 shares owned by North Sound Trading, LP), filed with the Commission on February 12, 2019, will be sold by the selling stockholders.
Golden Harbor Ltd. and Joe Lewis have shared voting and shared investment power with respect to all shares beneficially owned by Golden Harbor Ltd.
The shares are owned directly by North Sound Trading LP, a Delaware partnership, Brian Miller is the sole shareholder of North Sound Management, Inc., a Delaware corporation, which is in turn the general partner of North Sound Trading, LP.
Each time a selling stockholder sells any shares of Common Stock offered by this prospectus, it is required to provide you with this prospectus and the related prospectus supplement, if any, containing specific information about such selling stockholder and the terms of the shares of Common Stock being offered in the manner required by the Securities Act.
No offer or sale may occur unless the registration statement that includes this prospectus has been declared effective by the Commission and remains effective at the time a selling stockholder offers or sells shares of Common Stock. We are required, under certain circumstances, to update, supplement or amend this prospectus to reflect material developments in our business, financial position and results of operations and may do so by an amendment to this prospectus, a prospectus supplement or a future filing with the Commission incorporated by reference in this prospectus.
The selling stockholders may, from time to time, sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of the shares of Common Stock or interests in the shares of Common Stock covered hereby:
on any stock exchange, market or trading facility on which the shares are traded or in private transactions; or
through underwriters, broker-dealers or agents, who may receive compensation in the form of discounts, commissions or agents commissions from the selling stockholders or the purchasers of the Common Stock (these discounts, concessions or commissions may be in excess of those customary in the types of transactions involved).
These dispositions may be at fixed prices, at prevailing market prices at the time of sale, at prices related to the prevailing market price, at varying prices determined at the time of sale, at negotiated prices, or without cash consideration.
The selling stockholders may use any one or more of the following methods when disposing of shares or interests therein:
sales on any national securities exchange or quotation on which the Common Stock may be listed or quoted at the time of the sale;
sales in the over-the-counter market;
sales in transactions other than on such exchanges or services or in the over-the-counter market;
ordinary brokerage transactions and transactions in which the broker-dealer solicits purchasers;
block trades in which the broker-dealer will attempt to sell the shares as agent, but may position and resell a portion of the block as principal to facilitate the transaction;
purchases by a broker-dealer as principal and resale by the broker-dealer for its account;
sales at the market to or through a market maker or into an existing trading market, on an exchange or otherwise;
an exchange distribution in accordance with the rules of the applicable exchange;
privately negotiated transactions;
short sales effected after the date the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part is declared effective by the Commission;
through the writing or settlement of options or other hedging transactions, whether through an options exchange or otherwise;
broker-dealers may agree with the selling stockholders to sell a specified number of such shares at a stipulated price per share;
a combination of any such methods of sale or distribution; and
any other method permitted by applicable law.
The selling stockholders may, from time to time, pledge or grant a security interest in some or all of the shares of Common Stock owned by them and, if they default in the performance of their secured obligations, the pledgees or secured parties may offer and sell the shares of Common Stock, from time to time, under this prospectus, or under an amendment to this prospectus under Rule 424(b)(3) or other applicable provision of the Securities Act amending the list of selling stockholders to include the pledgee, transferee or other successors in interest of the selling stockholders under this prospectus.
In connection with the sale of our Common Stock or interests therein, the selling stockholders may enter into hedging transactions with broker-dealers or other financial institutions, which may in turn engage in short sales of the Common Stock in the course of hedging the positions they assume. The selling stockholders may also sell shares of our Common Stock short and deliver these securities to close out their short positions, or loan or pledge the Common Stock to broker-dealers or other financial institutions that in turn may sell these securities. The selling stockholders may also enter into option or other transactions with broker-dealers or other financial institutions for the creation of one or more derivative securities which require the delivery to such broker-dealer or other financial institution of shares offered by this prospectus, which shares such broker-dealer or other financial institution may resell pursuant to this prospectus (as supplemented or amended to reflect such transaction).
The aggregate proceeds to the selling stockholders from the sale of the Common Stock offered by them will be the purchase price of the Common Stock less discounts or commissions, if any. The selling stockholders reserve the right to accept and, together with their agents from time to time, to reject, in whole or in part, any proposed purchase of Common Stock to be made directly or through such agents. We will not receive any of the proceeds from this offering.
The selling stockholders also may resell all or a portion of the shares in open market transactions in reliance upon Rule 144 under the Securities Act provided that they meet the criteria and conform to the requirements of that rule.
The selling stockholders and any underwriters, broker-dealers or agents that participate in the sale of the Common Stock or interests therein may be underwriters within the meaning of Section 2(11) of the Securities Act. Any discounts, commissions, concessions or profit they earn on any resale of the shares may be underwriting discounts and commissions under the Securities Act. If a selling stockholder is an underwriter within the meaning of Section 2(11) of the Securities Act, it will be subject to the prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act.
To the extent required, the shares of our Common Stock to be sold, the names of the selling stockholders, the purchase prices and public offering prices, the names of any agents, dealers or underwriters and any applicable commissions or discounts with respect to a particular offer will be set forth in an accompanying prospectus supplement or, if appropriate, a post-effective amendment to the registration statement that includes this prospectus.
In order to comply with the securities laws of some states, if applicable, the Common Stock may be sold in these jurisdictions only through registered or licensed brokers or dealers. In addition, in some states the Common Stock may not be sold unless it has been registered or qualified for sale or an exemption from registration or qualification requirements is available and is complied with.
We have advised the selling stockholders that the anti-manipulation rules of Regulation M under the Exchange Act may apply to sales of shares in the market and to the activities of the selling stockholders and their affiliates. In addition, to the extent applicable, we will make copies of this prospectus (as it may be supplemented or amended from time to time) available to the selling stockholders for the purpose of satisfying the prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act. The selling stockholders may indemnify any broker-dealer that participates in transactions involving the sale of the shares against certain liabilities, including liabilities arising under the Securities Act.
We have agreed to indemnify the selling stockholders against certain liabilities, including under the Securities Act and state securities laws, relating to the registration of the shares offered by this prospectus.
The following information describes our Common Stock, as well as certain provisions of our amended and restated certificate of incorporation (as amended, our Certificate of Incorporation) and our amended and restated bylaws (as amended, our Bylaws). This description is only a summary. You should also refer to our Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws, which have been filed with the Commission as exhibits to our registration statement, of which this prospectus forms a part.
Authorized and Outstanding Capital Stock
Our authorized capital stock consists of 150,000,000 shares of Common Stock and 2,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.001 per share (the Preferred Stock), issuable in one or more series designated by the Board, of which 150,000 shares have been designated as Series D Preferred Stock (as defined below). As of May 3, 2019, there were 78,733,610 shares of Common Stock and no shares of Preferred Stock issued and outstanding.
Subject to the rights of holders of all classes of stock at the time outstanding having prior rights as to dividends, the holders of Common Stock are entitled to receive such dividends, if any, as may from time to time be declared by our Board out of funds legally available for that purpose. Pursuant to our Certificate of Incorporation, holders of Common Stock are entitled to one vote per share, and are entitled to vote upon such matters and in such manner as may be provided by law. Holders of Common Stock have no preemptive, conversion, redemption or sinking fund rights. Subject to the rights of holders of all classes of stock at the time outstanding having prior rights as to liquidation, holders of Common Stock, upon the liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company, are entitled to share equally and ratably in the assets of the Company. The outstanding shares of Common Stock are validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable. The rights, preferences and privileges of holders of Common Stock are subject to the rights, preferences and privileges of any series of Preferred Stock that we may issue in the future.
Each share of Common Stock includes Series D Preferred Stock purchase rights (the Rights) pursuant to the rights agreement, dated as of January 22, 2018, between the Company and the rights agent named therein, as amended (the Rights Agreement). Prior to the occurrence of certain events, the Rights will not be exercisable or evidenced separately from the Common Stock. The Rights have no value except as reflected in the market price of the shares of the Common Stock to which they are attached, and can be transferred only with the shares of Common Stock to which they are attached.
Our Common Stock is traded on the NASDAQ Global Select Market under the symbol INSG.
Our Certificate of Incorporation provides that we may issue shares of Preferred Stock from time to time in one or more series. Our Board is authorized to fix the voting rights, if any, designations, powers, preferences, qualifications, limitations and restrictions thereof, applicable to the shares of each series of Preferred Stock. The Board may, without stockholder approval, issue Preferred Stock with voting and other rights that could adversely affect the voting power and other rights of the holders of our Common Stock and could have anti-takeover effects. The ability of the Board to issue Preferred Stock without stockholder approval could have the effect of delaying, deferring or preventing a change of control or the removal of our existing management.
Series D Preferred Stock
The Series D Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share (the Series D Preferred Stock), is reserved for issuance in connection with the Rights outstanding under our Rights Agreement. The Series D Preferred Stock
will not be redeemable at the option of the holder thereof. Each share of Series D Preferred Stock will be entitled to receive quarterly dividends when, and if declared by the Board, out of funds legally available for such purpose, equal to 1,000 times the aggregate of all dividends declared per share of Common Stock since the immediately preceding quarterly dividend payment date. In the event of our liquidation, the holders of Series D Preferred Stock will be entitled to an aggregate payment equal to 1,000 times the payment made per share of Common Stock, plus any accrued and unpaid dividends. Each share of Series D Preferred Stock shall be entitled to 1,000 votes, voting together with the shares of Common Stock, on any matter submitted to a vote of our stockholders. In the event of any merger, consolidation or other transaction in which shares of Common Stock are exchanged, each share of Series D Preferred Stock will be exchanged for 1,000 times the amount of consideration into which each share of Common Stock is exchanged. Because of the nature of the Series D Preferred Stock dividend, liquidation and voting rights, the value of the one one-thousandth share of Series D Preferred Stock purchasable upon exercise of each Right should approximate the value of one share of Common Stock. The Series D Preferred Stock would rank junior to any other series of Preferred Stock. There are currently no shares of Series D Preferred Stock issued and outstanding.
Anti-Takeover Effects of Some Provisions of Delaware Law
Provisions of Delaware law and our Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws could make the acquisition of the Company through a tender offer, a proxy contest or other means more difficult and could make the removal of incumbent officers and directors more difficult. We expect these provisions to discourage coercive takeover practices and inadequate takeover bids and to encourage persons seeking to acquire control of the Company to first negotiate with our Board. We believe that the benefits provided by our ability to negotiate with the proponent of an unfriendly or unsolicited proposal outweigh the disadvantages of discouraging these proposals. We believe the negotiation of an unfriendly or unsolicited proposal could result in an improvement of its terms.
We are subject to Section 203 of the Delaware General Corporation Law (the DGCL), an anti-takeover law. In general, Section 203 prohibits a publicly held Delaware corporation from engaging in a business combination with an interested stockholder for a period of three years following the date the person became an interested stockholder, unless:
the board of directors of the corporation approves either the business combination or the transaction that resulted in the stockholder becoming an interested stockholder, prior to the time the interested stockholder attained that status;
upon the closing of the transaction that resulted in the stockholder becoming an interested stockholder, the interested stockholder owned at least 85% of the voting stock of the corporation outstanding at the time the transaction commenced, excluding, for purposes of determining the number of shares outstanding, those shares owned by persons who are directors and also officers and by employee stock plans in which employee participants do not have the right to determine confidentially whether shares held subject to the plan will be tendered in a tender or exchange offer; or
at or subsequent to such time, the business combination is approved by the board of directors and authorized at an annual or special meeting of stockholders, and not by written consent, by the affirmative vote of at least 66-2/3% of the outstanding voting stock that is not owned by the interested stockholder.
With certain exceptions, an interested stockholder is a person or group who or which owns 15% or more of the corporations outstanding voting stock (including any rights to acquire stock pursuant to an option, warrant, agreement, arrangement or understanding, or upon the exercise of conversion or exchange rights, and stock with respect to which the person has voting rights only), or is an affiliate or associate of the corporation and was the owner of 15% or more of such voting stock at any time within the previous three years.
In general, Section 203 defines a business combination to include:
any merger or consolidation involving the corporation and the interested stockholder;
any sale, transfer, pledge or other disposition of 10% or more of the assets of the corporation involving the interested stockholder;
subject to certain exceptions, any transaction that results in the issuance or transfer by the corporation of any stock of the corporation to the interested stockholder;
any transaction involving the corporation that has the effect of increasing the proportionate share of the stock of any class or series of the corporation beneficially owned by the interested stockholder; or
the receipt by the interested stockholder of the benefit of any loans, advances, guarantees, pledges or other financial benefits provided by or through the corporation.
A Delaware corporation may opt out of this provision with an express provision in its original certificate of incorporation or an express provision in its amended and restated certificate of incorporation or bylaws resulting from a stockholders amendment approved by at least a majority of the outstanding voting shares. However, the Company has not opted out of this provision. Section 203 could prohibit or delay mergers or other takeover or change-in-control attempts and, accordingly, may discourage attempts to acquire the Company.
Anti-Takeover Effects of Our Charter Documents
Our Certificate of Incorporation provides for our Board to be divided into three classes serving staggered terms. Approximately one-third of the Board will be elected each year. The provision for a classified board could prevent a party who acquires control of a majority of the outstanding voting stock from obtaining control of the Board until the second annual stockholders meeting following the date the acquirer obtains the controlling stock interest. The classified board provision could discourage a potential acquirer from making a tender offer or otherwise attempting to obtain control of the Company and could increase the likelihood that incumbent directors will retain their positions.
Our Bylaws establish an advance notice procedure for stockholder proposals to be brought before an annual or special meeting of our stockholders, including proposed nominations of persons for election to the Board. Among other requirements, the advance notice provisions provide that (i) a stockholder must provide to the secretary of the Company timely notice (generally 90-120 days prior to the one-year anniversary of the previous years annual meeting of stockholders) of any business, including director nominations, proposed to be brought before the annual or special meeting, which notice must conform to the substantive requirements set forth in the Bylaws, (ii) a stockholder must deliver certain information regarding the person(s) making the proposal, and in the case of any nominee for election to the Board, information regarding such nominee, in each case as set forth in the Bylaws, and (iii) any nominee for election to the Board must provide both an executed questionnaire regarding his or her background, qualifications, stock ownership and independence, and an executed representation agreement regarding voting commitments, indemnification or similar arrangements and compliance with Company policies applicable to members of the Board. These provisions may discourage or deter a potential acquirer from conducting a solicitation of proxies to elect the acquirers own slate of directors or otherwise attempting to obtain control of the Company.
Our Bylaws provide that our Board, our chairperson of the Board or our chief executive officer may call a special meeting of stockholders. Because our stockholders do not have the right to call a special meeting, a stockholder could not force stockholder consideration of a proposal over the opposition of the Board by calling a special meeting of stockholders prior to such time as a majority of the Board believed the matter should be considered or until the next annual meeting provided that the requestor met the notice and other requirements. The restriction on the ability of stockholders to call a special meeting means that a proposal to replace the Board also could be delayed until the next annual meeting.
Our Certificate of Incorporation provides that our Bylaws may be altered or amended or new bylaws adopted by the affirmative vote of at least 66 2/3% of the voting power of all of the then-outstanding shares of our voting stock entitled to vote.
Our Board is expressly authorized to adopt, amend or repeal our Bylaws. This provision may not be repealed, amended or altered in any respect without the affirmative vote of the holders of at least 66 2/3% of the voting power of all of the then-outstanding shares of our voting stock entitled to vote.
Our Certificate of Incorporation does not allow stockholders to act by written consent without a meeting. Without the availability of stockholder action by written consent, a holder of the requisite number of shares of our capital stock would not be able to amend our Bylaws or remove directors without holding a stockholders meeting. The holder would have to obtain the consent of a majority of our Board, our chairperson of the Board or our chief executive officer to call a stockholders meeting and satisfy the notice periods determined by our Board.
Anti-Takeover Effects of Our Rights Agreement
On January 22, 2018, the Company entered into a Rights Agreement with Computershare Trust Company, N.A., a federally chartered trust company, as rights agent (Rights Agent). In connection with the Rights Agreement, the Board authorized and declared a dividend distribution of one Right for each share of Common Stock outstanding and has authorized the issuance of one Right with respect to each share of Common Stock that is issued and becomes outstanding until the earlier of the Distribution Date and the Expiration Date (each as defined in the Rights Agreement). Prior to exercise, the Rights do not give their holders any rights as stockholders of the Company, including any dividend, voting or liquidation rights. The Rights trade only with the shares of Common Stock to which they are attached. A complete description and terms of the Rights are set forth in the Rights Agreement.
The Rights are not exercisable until the Distribution Date. Until the Distribution Date, the Rights will be transferred with and only with the Common Stock. Upon the Distribution Date, the Rights may be transferred separately from the Common Stock, and each Right, other than Rights held by an Acquiring Person (as defined below), will entitle its holder to purchase from the Company one one-thousandth of a share of Series D Preferred Stock, at a purchase price of $10.00 per one one-thousandth of a share of Series D Preferred Stock, subject to adjustment (the Purchase Price). An Acquiring Person is any person or group of affiliated or associated persons that has acquired or has the ability to acquire direct or indirect beneficial ownership of 4.9% or more of the Companys Common Stock then-outstanding, subject to certain exceptions. In connection with the Private Placement, the Company and the Rights Agent entered into an amendment to the Rights Plan for the purpose of expanding the definition of Grandfathered Stockholder under the Rights Plan to include each of the investors in the Private Placement such that neither of such investors would become an Acquiring Person under the Rights Plan unless, after the Private Placement, they acquired beneficial ownership of additional Company securities (other than as a result of any adjustment provision or the accrual of interest under any outstanding convertible notes) equal to more than 0.50% of the then-outstanding Common Stock.
In connection with the Secondary Purchases, the Company and the Rights Agent entered into an amendment to the Rights Plan for the purpose of modifying the definition of Acquiring Person under the Rights Agreement to permit each of the selling stockholders to remain a Grandfathered Stockholder (and not be deemed an Acquiring Person under the Rights Agreement) in connection with such Grandfathered Stockholders purchase of additional shares of the Common Stock from other existing Grandfathered Stockholders in the Secondary Purchases. Accordingly, neither of the selling stockholders would become an Acquiring Person under the Rights Plan unless, after the Secondary Purchases, they acquired beneficial ownership of additional Company securities (other than as a result of any adjustment provision or the accrual of interest under any outstanding convertible notes) equal to more than 0.50% of the then-outstanding Common Stock.
In connection with the issuance of the Warrants, the Company and the Rights Agent entered into an amendment to the Rights Plan for the purpose of modifying the definition of Acquiring Person under the Rights Agreement to permit each of the selling stockholders to remain a Grandfathered Stockholder (and not be deemed an Acquiring Person under the Rights Agreement) in connection with such Grandfathered
Stockholders receipt of the Warrants. Accordingly, neither of the selling stockholders shall become an Acquiring Person under the Rights Plan unless, after the issuance of the Warrants, they acquire beneficial ownership of additional Company securities (other than as a result of any adjustment provision or the accrual of interest under any outstanding convertible notes) equal to more than 0.50% of the then-outstanding Common Stock.
If any person becomes an Acquiring Person, each holder of Rights (other than Rights owned by an Acquiring Person, which shall have become void), will thereafter have the right to receive, upon exercise thereof, that number shares of Common Stock of the Company having a market value equal to two times the Purchase Price.
If, at any time after a person becomes an Acquiring Person, the Company is acquired in a merger or other business combination transaction or 50% or more of its consolidated assets or earning power are sold, proper provision will be made so that each holder of a Right will thereafter have the right to receive, upon the exercise thereof at the then-current purchase price of the Right, that number of shares of Common Stock of the acquiring company which at the time of such transaction will have a market value equal to two times the Purchase Price.
At any time after any person becomes an Acquiring Person and prior to the acquisition by any person or group of a majority of the Common Stock then-outstanding, the Board may exchange the Rights (other than Rights owned by an Acquiring Person, which shall have become void), at an exchange ratio of one share of Common Stock per Right, subject to adjustment.
The Rights will expire on the earliest of (i) the close of business on January 22, 2021, (ii) the time at which the Rights are redeemed, and (iii) the time at which the Rights are exchanged.
At any time before any person becomes an Acquiring Person, the Board may redeem the Rights in whole, but not in part. Immediately upon any redemption of the Rights, the right to exercise the Rights will terminate.
The terms of the Rights Agreement may be amended by the Board without the consent of the holders of the Rights. However, from and after such time as any person becomes an Acquiring Person, the Rights Agreement shall not be amended or supplemented in any manner which would adversely affect the interests of the holders of Rights (other than Rights which have become null and void).
The Rights have anti-takeover effects. If the Rights are exercised, shares of Series D Preferred Stock will be issued, which will cause significant dilution to an Acquiring Person that attempts to acquire us on terms not approved by our Board. The Rights should not interfere with any merger or other business combination approved by our Board since the Rights may be amended to permit such acquisition or redeemed by us at $0.0001 per Right at any time prior to the time that a person or group becomes an Acquiring Person.
