Item 6.
Indemnification of Directors and Officers.
Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law, or “DGCL,” provides that a corporation may indemnify any persons who were, are or are threatened to be made, parties 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 such corporation), by reason of the fact that such person is or was an officer, director, employee or agent of such corporation, or is or was serving at the request of such corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise. The indemnity may include 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, provided such person acted in good faith and in a manner he or she reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the corporation’s best interests and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe that his or her conduct was unlawful.




Section 145 of the DGCL further authorizes a corporation to purchase and maintain insurance on behalf of any person who 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 any liability asserted against him or her and incurred by him or her in any such capacity, arising out of his or her status as such, whether or not the corporation would otherwise have the power to indemnify him or her under Section 145 of the DGCL.
The Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended (the “Charter”) and the Fifth Amended and Restated By-laws (the “By-laws”) of the Company include provisions to (i) eliminate the personal liability of the Company’s directors for monetary damages resulting from breaches of their fiduciary duty to the extent permitted by Section 102(b)(7) of the DGCL and (ii) authorize the Company to indemnify its directors and officers to the fullest extent permitted by Section 145 of the DGCL, including circumstances in which indemnification is otherwise discretionary. The Company has purchased an insurance policy covering its officers and directors with respect to certain liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or otherwise.
The indemnification provisions in the Company’s Charter and By-laws may be sufficiently broad to permit indemnification of the Company’s directors and executive officers for liabilities arising under the Securities Act.
The foregoing summaries are necessarily subject to the complete text of the DGCL, Charter and the By-laws referred to above and are qualified in their entirety by reference thereto.

Item 9.
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 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;
 
 
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 (1)(i) and (1)(ii) of this section do not apply if the registration statement is on Form S-8, and 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.
 
 
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.
(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 or Section 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 such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.
(c)
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.

SIGNATURES
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, the registrant, Kopin Corporation, certifies that it has reasonable grounds to believe that it meets all of the requirements for filing on Form S-8 and has duly caused this Registration Statement to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized, in the City of Westborough, Commonwealth of Massachusetts, on this 6th day of June, 2018.

Re: Registration Statement on Form S-8
Ladies and Gentlemen:
This opinion is furnished in connection with the registration, pursuant to a Registration Statement on Form S-8 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on or about June 6, 2018 (the “Registration Statement”), of an aggregate of 2,025,150 shares (the “Shares”) of common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”), of Kopin Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), all of which are or will be issuable to directors, employees and consultants of the Company as awards issued or to be issued in accordance with the terms of the Company’s 2010 Equity Incentive Plan, as amended (the “2010 Plan”).
We have acted as counsel to the Company in connection with the foregoing registration of the Shares. We have examined and relied upon originals or copies of such records, instruments, certificates, memoranda, and other documents as we have deemed necessary or advisable for purposes of this opinion and have assumed, without independent inquiry, the accuracy of those documents. In that examination, we have assumed the genuineness of all signatures, the conformity to the originals of all documents reviewed by us as copies, the authenticity and completeness of all original documents reviewed by us in original or copy form, and the legal competence of each individual executing such documents.
We further assume that all Shares issued pursuant to awards granted or to be granted pursuant to the 2010 Plan will be issued in accordance with the terms of the 2010 Plan and that the purchase price of the Shares will be greater than or equal to the par value per share of the Shares.
This opinion is limited solely to the Delaware General Corporation Law.
Based upon and subject to the foregoing, we are of the opinion that the Shares to be issued by the Company pursuant to the 2010 Plan have been duly authorized, and when issued and delivered in accordance with the terms of the 2010 Plan, will be validly issued, fully paid, and nonassessable.
We consent to the filing of a copy of this opinion as an exhibit to the Registration Statement.
Very truly yours,
/s/ Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP
