196,463 Shares of Common Stock

 

 

This prospectus relates to the offer and sale from time to time by the selling stockholders named herein of up to 196,463 shares of the common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), of Inseego Corp. (the “Company”). We are registering the resale of the shares of Common Stock as required by the terms of the Mutual General Release and Settlement Agreement that we entered into with the selling stockholders on July 26, 2018 (the “Settlement Agreement”).

Our registration of the shares of Common Stock covered by this prospectus does not mean that the selling stockholders will offer or sell any of the shares. The selling stockholders may offer and sell or otherwise dispose of the shares of Common Stock described in this prospectus from time to time through public or private transactions at prevailing market prices, at prices related to prevailing market prices or at privately negotiated prices. See “Plan of Distribution” beginning on page 10 for more information.

We will not receive any of the proceeds from the sale of shares of Common Stock by the selling stockholders.

The selling stockholders will pay all underwriting discounts and selling commissions, if any, in connection with the sale of the shares of Common Stock. We have agreed to pay certain expenses in connection with this registration statement. As of the date of this prospectus, no underwriter or other person has been engaged to facilitate the sale of shares of Common Stock in this offering.

You should read this prospectus, any applicable prospectus supplement and any related free writing prospectus carefully before you invest.

Our Common Stock is traded on the NASDAQ Global Select Market under the symbol “INSG.” On August 8, 2019, the last reported sale price of our Common Stock on the NASDAQ Global Select Market was $4.45.

 

 

Investing in our securities involves a high degree of risk. You should carefully review the risks and uncertainties described under the heading “Risk Factors” beginning on page 6 and contained under similar headings in the other documents that we incorporate by reference into this prospectus.

Neither the Securities and Exchange Commission nor any state securities commission has approved or disapproved of these securities or determined if this prospectus is truthful or complete. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offense.

CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This prospectus and the documents incorporated by reference into this prospectus may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), about the Company and its subsidiaries. These forward-looking statements are intended to be covered by the safe harbor for forward-looking statements provided by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements are not statements of historical fact, and can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “believes”, “expects”, “may”, “will”, “could”, “should”, “projects”, “plans”, “goal”, “targets”, “potential”, “estimates”, “pro forma”, “seeks”, “intends” or “anticipates” or the negative thereof or comparable terminology. Forward-looking statements include discussions of strategy, financial projections, guidance and estimates (including their underlying assumptions), statements regarding plans, objectives, expectations or consequences of various transactions, and statements about the future performance, operations, products and services of the Company and its subsidiaries.

You should read this prospectus and the documents incorporated by reference completely and with the understanding that our actual future results may be materially different from what we currently expect. Our business and operations are and will be subject to a variety of risks, uncertainties and other factors. Consequently, actual results and experience may materially differ from those contained in any forward-looking statements. Such risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results and experience to differ from those projected include, but are not limited to, the risk factors set forth in Part I—Item 1A, “Risk Factors”, in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on March 12, 2019, including the amendment thereto filed on Form 10-K/A on April 30, 2019, and elsewhere in the other documents incorporated by reference into this prospectus.

You should assume that the information appearing in this prospectus, any accompanying prospectus supplement, any related free writing prospectus and any document incorporated herein by reference is accurate as of its date only. Because the risk factors referred to above could cause actual results or outcomes to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements made by us or on our behalf, you should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. Further, any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which it is made. New factors emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict which factors will arise. In addition, we cannot assess the impact of each factor on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. All written or oral forward-looking statements attributable to us or any person acting on our behalf made after the date of this prospectus are expressly qualified in their entirety by the risk factors and cautionary statements contained in and incorporated by reference into this prospectus. Unless legally required, we do not undertake any obligation to release publicly any revisions to such forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this prospectus or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.

THE SELLING STOCKHOLDERS

This prospectus relates to the resale by the selling stockholders named below, from time to time, of up to 196,463 shares of our Common Stock issued to the selling stockholders 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 all of the shares covered by this prospectus or may sell or dispose of some or all of the 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 the 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 upon completion of the applicable offering.

The selling stockholders are former employees of our subsidiary, Inseego North America, LLC, and are the former stockholders of R.E.R. Enterprises, Inc. from whom we acquired our subsidiaries R.E.R. Enterprises, Inc., Inseego North America, LLC and Feeney Wireless IC-Disc, Inc. We do not believe that any selling stockholder: (a) is a broker-dealer or affiliate of a broker-dealer or (b) has any direct or indirect agreements or understandings with any person to distribute their shares. In addition, it is our understanding that each selling stockholder has sole voting and investment power with respect to all shares beneficially owned.

The selling stockholders have represented to us in writing that they acquired the securities for their own account and not with a view to resell or distribute such securities or any part thereof in violation of the Securities Act. In recognition of the fact that the selling stockholders, even though acquiring the shares for their own account, 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.

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 79,540,191 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding as of August 9, 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 August 9, 2019. Information in the table below is based on information provided by or on behalf of the selling stockholders. 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.

PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION

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 agent’s 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.

Table of Contents

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, he 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.

Common Stock

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.”

Preferred Stock

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

Table of Contents

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 our 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 corporation’s 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;

 

13


Table of Contents
   

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 year’s 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 acquirer’s 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.

 

14


Table of Contents

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. 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 Company’s Common Stock then-outstanding, subject to certain exceptions.

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.

 

15


Table of Contents

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.

Item 15. Indemnification of Directors and Officers.

Section 145(a) of the DGCL provides that a Delaware corporation may indemnify any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative (other than an action by or in the right of the corporation) by reason of the fact that such person is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation or enterprise, against expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by such person in connection with such action, suit or proceeding if he or she acted in good faith and in a manner he or she reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe his or her conduct was unlawful.

Section 145(b) of the DGCL provides that a Delaware corporation may indemnify any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action or suit by or in the right of the corporation to procure a judgment in its favor by reason of the fact that such person acted in any of the capacities set forth above, against expenses (including attorneys’ fees) actually and reasonably incurred by such person in connection with the defense or settlement of such action or suit if he or she acted under similar standards, except that no indemnification may be made in respect of any claim, issue or matter as to which such person shall have been adjudged to be liable to the corporation unless and only to the extent that the court in which such action or suit was brought shall determine that, despite the adjudication of liability but in view of all the circumstances of the case, such person is fairly and reasonably entitled to be indemnified for such expenses which the court shall deem proper.

Section 145 of the DGCL further provides that: (i) to the extent that a present or former or director or officer of a corporation has been successful on the merits or otherwise in the defense of any action, suit or proceeding referred to in subsections (a) and (b) or in the defense of any claim, issue or matter therein, such person shall be indemnified against expenses (including attorneys’ fees) actually and reasonably incurred by him or her in connection therewith; (ii) indemnification provided for by Section 145 shall not be deemed exclusive of any other rights to which the indemnified party may be entitled; and (iii) the corporation may purchase and maintain insurance on behalf of any present or former director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation or any person who at the request of the corporation was serving in such capacity for another entity against any liability asserted against such person and incurred by him or her in any such capacity or arising out of his or her status as such, whether or not the corporation would have the power to indemnify him or her against such liabilities under Section 145.

 

II-1


Table of Contents

Our Certificate of Incorporation provides that, to the fullest extent permitted by the DGCL, our directors shall not be personally liable to the Company or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of the directors’ fiduciary duties. This provision in our Certificate of Incorporation does not eliminate the duty of care, and in appropriate circumstances equitable remedies such as injunctive or other forms of non-monetary relief will remain available under Delaware law. In addition, each director will continue to be subject to liability for breach of the director’s duty of loyalty, for acts or omissions not in good faith or involving intentional misconduct or knowing violations of the law, for actions leading to improper personal benefit to the director, and for payment of dividends or approval of stock repurchases or redemptions that are unlawful under Delaware law. The provision also does not affect a director’s responsibilities under any other law, such as the federal securities laws or state or federal environmental laws.

Article 6 of our Bylaws provides that we will indemnify, to the maximum extent and in the manner permitted by the DGCL, each person who was or is made a party or is threatened to be made a party to or is involved in any action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, by reason of the fact that he or she is or was a director or officer of the Company, whether the basis of such proceeding is alleged action in an official capacity as a director or officer or in any other capacity while serving as a director or officer, against all expenses, liability and loss reasonably incurred or suffered by such person in connection therewith.

In addition to the above, we have entered into indemnification agreements with each of our directors and executive officers (each, an “Indemnitee”). In general, the indemnification agreements provide that, subject to certain limitations, the Company will indemnify and hold harmless each Indemnitee against all expenses, judgments, penalties, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by such Indemnitee or on such Indemnitee’s behalf, in connection with certain pending, completed or threatened proceedings, as defined in the indemnification agreements, if the Indemnitee acted in good faith and reasonably in the best interests of the Company and, with respect to any criminal proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe that his or her conduct was unlawful. We also have directors’ and officers’ liability insurance, which provides coverage against certain liabilities that may be incurred by our directors and officers in their capacities as directors and officers of the Company.

Item 17. Undertakings.

 

(a)

The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes:

(1)    To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this registration statement:

(i)    To include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act of 1933;

(ii)    To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of the registration statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the registration statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in the volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than 20% change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the “Calculation of Registration Fee” table in the effective registration statement; and

(iii)    To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the registration statement or any material change to such information in the registration statement;

provided, however, that paragraphs (a)(1)(i), (a)(1)(ii) and (a)(1)(iii) of this section do not apply if the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in reports filed with or furnished to the Commission by the registrant pursuant to Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 that are incorporated by reference in the registration statement, or is contained in a form of prospectus filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) that is part of the registration statement.

(2)    That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

(3)    To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.

(5)    That, for the purpose of determining liability under the Securities Act of 1933 to any purchaser, each prospectus filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) as part of a registration statement relating to an offering, other than registration statements relying on Rule 430B or other than prospectuses filed in reliance on Rule 430A, shall be deemed to be part of and included in the registration statement as of the date it is first used after effectiveness. Provided, however, that no statement made in a registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement or made in a document incorporated or deemed incorporated by reference into the registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement will, as to a purchaser with a time of contract of sale prior to such first use, supersede or modify any statement that was made in the registration statement or prospectus that was part of the registration statement or made in any such document immediately prior to such date of first use.

 

(b)

The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each filing of the registrant’s annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plan’s annual report pursuant to Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) that is incorporated by reference in the registration statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of the securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

 

II-3


Table of Contents

(h)    Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.

As such counsel and for purposes of the opinion set forth herein, we have examined and relied upon originals or copies, certified or otherwise identified to our satisfaction, of such documents, resolutions, certificates and instruments of the Company, certificates of public officials, records and such other instruments and documents as we have deemed necessary or appropriate as a basis for the opinion set forth herein, including, without limitation:

In addition, we have made such investigations of law as we have deemed necessary or appropriate as a basis for the opinion set forth herein.

In such examination and in rendering the opinion set forth herein, we have assumed, without independent investigation or verification: (i) the genuineness of all signatures on all agreements, instruments, corporate records, certificates and other documents submitted to us; (ii) the legal capacity and authority of all persons or entities (other than the Company) executing all agreements, instruments, corporate records, certificates and other documents submitted to us; (iii) the authenticity and completeness of all agreements, instruments, corporate records, certificates and other documents submitted to us as originals; (iv) that all agreements, instruments, corporate records, certificates and other documents submitted to us as certified, electronic, facsimile, conformed, photostatic or other copies conform to the originals thereof, and that such originals are authentic and complete; (v) the due authorization, execution and delivery of all agreements, instruments, corporate records, certificates and other documents by all parties thereto (other than the Company); (vi) that no documents submitted to us have been amended or terminated orally or in writing except as has been disclosed to us in writing; (vii) that the statements contained in the certificates and comparable documents of public officials, officers and representatives of the Company and other persons on which we have relied for the purposes of this opinion letter are true and correct; (viii) that there has not been any change in the good standing status of the Company from that reported in the Good Standing Certificate; and (ix) that each of the officers and directors of the Company has properly exercised his or her fiduciary duties. As to all questions of fact material to the opinion set forth herein and as to the materiality of any fact or other matter referred to herein, we have relied (without independent investigation or verification) upon representations and certificates or comparable documents of officers and representatives of the Company.

Based upon the foregoing, and in reliance thereon, and subject to the limitations, qualifications and exceptions set forth herein, we are of the opinion that the Shares are validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable.

Without limiting any of the other limitations, exceptions and qualifications stated elsewhere herein, we express no opinion with regard to the applicability or effect of the law of any jurisdiction other than, as in effect on the date of this opinion letter, the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware.

This opinion letter deals only with the specified legal issues expressly addressed herein, and you should not infer any opinion that is not explicitly addressed herein from any matter addressed in this opinion letter.

This opinion letter is rendered solely to you in connection with the issuance and delivery of the Shares under the Registration Statement and may be relied upon by you and by persons entitled to rely upon it pursuant to the applicable provisions of the Act solely for such purpose. This opinion letter is rendered to you as of the date hereof, and we assume no obligation to advise you or any other person with regard to any change after the date hereof in the circumstances or the law that may bear on the matters set forth herein even if the change may affect the legal analysis or a legal conclusion or other matters in this opinion letter.
