Item 1.01 Entry into Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On October 22, 2018, we entered into an Exchange Agreement pursuant to which we acquired a majority of the outstanding shares (the “Control Shares”) of Browning Productions
& Entertainment, Inc
., a Florida corporation (“Browning”), from William J. Browning, the sole stockholder of Browning. Browning produces television programs which have aired internationally as well as nationally.

In exchange for the controlling interest in Browning, we paid Mr. Browning $10,000 and issued to him 150,000 shares of common stock, and agreed to issue to him an additional 150,000 shares of common stock following completion of the audit of Browning’s financial statements, plus an additional number of shares of common stock determined by dividing two and a half times the net after tax earnings of Browning during the twelve month period ending December 31, 2019 by the average of the closing price of our common stock during the ten consecutive trading days immediately preceding the end of 2019. To the extent the number of shares which we are obligated to issue to Mr. Browning exceeds 13,553,506 shares, representing 19.99% of our outstanding shares of common stock immediately prior to the acquisition (the “Excess Shares”), instead of issuing the Excess Shares to Mr. Browning we will pay him an amount in cash for the Excess Shares. We had previously paid Mr. Browning $10,000 and issued 35,000 shares of common stock to him upon execution of a non-binding letter of intent for the acquisition of Browning on May 10, 2018.

We have agreed to register for resale the initial 150,000 shares issued to Mr. Browning.

We have a right of first refusal to purchase the remaining shares of Browning.

 

In the event our common stock is delisted from NASDAQ, Mr. Browning has the right to request that we return to him the Control Shares, provided that he has not disposed of one-half of the shares issued and issuable to him in connection with the acquisition.

 

We also have agreed to provide Browning with a working capital loan in an initial amount of $150,000, which is to be repaid out of the post-closing net profit of Browning.

 

Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities

 

On October 22, 2018, we issued to Mr. Browning, who represented to us that he was an accredited investor, a total of 150,000 shares of common stock (the “Shares”) in exchange for a majority of the outstanding shares of Browning.

 

The issuance of the Shares was exempt from registration pursuant to Rule 506 of Regulation D under the Securities Act and Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act. The certificates representing the Shares were endorsed with the customary Securities Act restrictive legend.

This EXCHANGE AGREEMENT (the “Agreement”) is entered into October 22, 2018, by and among One Horizon Group, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“OHGI”), Browning Productions & Entertainment, Inc., a Florida corporation (the “Company”), and William J. Browning (“WJB”), the owner of all of the outstanding shares of the Company (“Shareholder”), upon the following premises:

 

Preliminary Statement

The Shareholder owns 100% of the shares of the common stock of the Company (the “Company Shares”), representing all of the outstanding shares of capital stock of the Company.

  

OHGI desires to acquire 51% of the Company Shares (the “Control Shares”) from the Shareholder in exchange for (i) shares of OHGI Common Stock computed and delivered in accordance with the provisions of Section 5.02 of this Agreement (“Exchange Shares”), (ii) $10,000 in cash (the “Cash Compensation”) and (iii) 300,000 shares of OHGI Common Stock (the “Additional Compensation Shares,” collectively, the “OHGI Consideration”). The Shareholder is willing to exchange his Control Shares for the OHGI Consideration, on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth herein (“Exchange”).

 

OHGI and the Shareholder entered into a non-binding term sheet on May 10, 2018 with respect to the proposed Exchange pursuant to and upon the execution of which OHGI issued to the Shareholder 35,000 shares of OHGI Common Stock and paid to the Shareholder $10,000 in cash.

 

The board of directors of OHGI (the “OHGI Board”) and the Company (the “Company Board”) have determined that the transaction contemplated hereby is desirable and in the best interests of their respective stockholders. This Agreement is being entered into for the purpose of setting forth the terms and conditions of the proposed Exchange.

 

NOW THEREFORE, on the stated premises and for and in consideration of the mutual covenants and agreements hereinafter set forth and the mutual benefits to the parties to be derived here from, and intending to be legally bound hereby, it is hereby agreed as follows:

However, if the total number of the Exchange Shares exceeds the NASDAQ Limit, OHGI shall promptly pay the Shareholder an amount in cash equal in value to the amount due that exceeds the value of the number of Exchange Shares actually delivered (based upon the Market Value, as defined below) in lieu of delivering any shares of OHGI Common Stock which exceed the NASDAQ Limit.

  

For purposes of the above:

 

(i)  the Company’s Net Profit for the Measurement Period shall be determined in accordance with GAAP. For the avoidance of doubt, Net Profit shall not include any revenues, or costs and expenses, related to OHGI or any other subsidiary or affiliate thereof other than the Company.

 

(ii)  the “Market Value” of the OHGI Common Stock used to determine the number of shares of OHGI Common Stock deliverable hereunder shall be the average closing price of a share of OHGI Common Stock for the ten (10) consecutive trading days (“Determination Period”) ending on the last trading day of the Measurement Period.

  

(iii)  the closing price of a share of OHGI Common Stock as of any date during the Determination Period shall mean (A) if the OHGI Common Stock is then listed on NASDAQ or another securities exchange (each, an “Exchange”), the closing price of the OHGI Common Stock on the Exchange on which OHGI Common Stock is then listed on such date as reported by Bloomberg L.P.

(or a similar organization or agency succeeding to its functions of reporting prices), as the last bid price per share of the OHGI Common Stock so reported for such date; or (D) in all other cases, the fair market value of a share of OHGI Common Stock as determined by an independent appraiser selected in good faith by the OHGI Board, the fees and expenses of which shall be paid by OHGI.

  

 15 

 

 

OHGI shall cause its Transfer Agent to issue and deliver certificates evidencing the Exchange Shares to which the Shareholder is entitled, if any, registered in the name of the Shareholder or a designated majority owned affiliate of the Shareholder, to the Shareholder, within fifteen (15) days after the end of the Determination Period.

(C)  any executive compensation payable to the Shareholder shall be deducted in computing Net Profit.

 

(D)  intercompany transactions between the Company and OHGI or its affiliates will be adjusted to reflect the amounts that the Company would have realized or paid if dealing with an independent third party on an arm’s length basis; provided, however, that any interest on loans made by OHGI to the Company, intercompany or otherwise, shall be deducted in computing Net Profit.

 

5.03 Reservation of OHGI Common Stock. OHGI agrees to reserve with its Transfer Agent from time-to-time a sufficient number of shares of OHGI Common Stock for issuance to the Shareholder pursuant to Section 5.02 and Section 5.04.

(a)  150,000 shares of the Additional Shares Compensation not delivered to the Shareholder at the Closing shall be delivered to the Shareholder within (60) days following completion of the first audit of the Company’s 2017 year-end financial statements.

 16 

 

 

(ii)
  Registration Procedures. In connection with the Registration Statement, OHGI will:

 

(A)  Prepare and file with the SEC such amendments and supplements to the Registration Statement and the prospectus used in connection therewith as may be necessary to keep such Registration Statement effective with respect to the Shareholder until all the Additional Compensation Shares owned by such Shareholder may be resold without restriction under the Securities Act; and

 

(B)  Immediately notify the Shareholder when the prospectus included in the Registration Statement is required to be delivered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), of the happening of any event of which OHGI has knowledge as a result of which the prospectus contained in such Registration Statement, as then in effect, includes an untrue statement of a material fact or omits to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading in light of the circumstances then existing. If OHGI notifies the Shareholder to suspend the use of any prospectus until the requisite changes to such prospectus have been made, then the Shareholder shall suspend use of such prospectus. In such event, OHGI will use its commercially reasonable efforts to update such prospectus as promptly as is practicable.

 

(iii)
  Provision of Documents etc. In connection with the Registration Statement, the Shareholder will furnish to OHGI in writing such information and representation letters with respect to itself and the proposed distribution by it as reasonably shall be necessary in order to assure compliance with federal and applicable state securities laws.

 17 

 

 

(v)
  Indemnification and Contribution.

 

(A)  OHGI will, to the extent permitted by law, indemnify and hold harmless the Shareholder against any losses, claims, damages or liabilities, joint or several, to which the Shareholder may become subject under the Securities Act or otherwise, insofar as such losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or actions in respect thereof) (“Claims”) arise out of or are based upon any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of any material fact contained in the Registration Statement at the time of its effectiveness, any preliminary prospectus or final prospectus contained therein, or any amendment or supplement thereof, or arise out of or are based upon the omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading in light of the circumstances when made, and will, subject to the limitations herein, reimburse the Shareholder for any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred in connection with investigating or defending any such Claim; provided, however, that OHGI shall not be liable to Shareholder to the extent that any Claim arises out of or is based upon an untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission made in conformity with information furnished by the Shareholder in writing specifically for use in the Registration Statement or related prospectus, as amended or supplemented.

 

(B)  The Shareholder will, to the extent permitted by law, indemnify and hold harmless OHGI, and each person, if any, who controls OHGI within the meaning of the Securities Act, each underwriter, each officer of OHGI who signs the Registration Statement and each director of OHGI against all Claims to which OHGI or such officer, director, underwriter or controlling person may become subject under the Securities Act or otherwise, insofar as such Claims arise out of or are based upon any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of any material fact contained in the Registration Statement, any preliminary prospectus or final prospectus contained therein, or any amendment or supplement thereof, or the omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, and will reimburse OHGI and each such officer, director, underwriter and controlling person for any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by them in connection with investigating or defending any such loss, claim, damage, liability or action, provided, however, that such Shareholder will be liable hereunder in any such case if and only to the extent that any such Claim arises out of or is based upon an untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission made in reliance upon and in conformity with information pertaining to such Shareholder, as such, furnished in writing to OHGI by such Shareholder specifically for use in the Registration Statement or related prospectus, as amended or supplemented.

 

(C)  Promptly after receipt by an indemnified party hereunder of notice of the commencement of any action, such indemnified party shall, if a claim in respect thereof is to be made against the indemnifying party hereunder, notify the indemnifying party in writing thereof, but the omission so to notify the indemnifying party shall not relieve it from any liability which it may have to such indemnified party other than under this section and shall only relieve it from any liability which it may have to such indemnified party under this section except and only if and to the extent the indemnifying party is materially prejudiced by such omission. In case any such action shall be brought against any indemnified party and it shall notify the indemnifying party of the commencement thereof, the indemnifying party shall be entitled to participate in and, to the extent it shall wish, to assume and undertake the defense thereof with counsel satisfactory to such indemnified party, and, after notice from the indemnifying party to such indemnified party of its election so to assume and undertake the defense thereof, the indemnifying party shall not be liable to such indemnified party under this section for any legal expenses subsequently incurred by such indemnified party in connection with the defense thereof other than reasonable costs of investigation and of liaison with counsel so selected; provided, however, that, if the defendants in any such action include both the indemnified party and the indemnifying party and the indemnified party shall have reasonably concluded that there may be reasonable defenses available to it which are different from or additional to those available to the indemnifying party or if the interests of the indemnified party reasonably may be deemed to conflict with the interests of the indemnifying party, the indemnified parties, as a group, shall have the right to select one separate counsel and to assume such legal defenses and otherwise to participate in the defense of such action, with the reasonable expenses and fees of such separate counsel and other expenses related to such participation to be reimbursed by the indemnifying party as incurred. The indemnifying party shall not be liable for any settlement of any such proceeding affected without its written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld.

 

 18 

 

 

(D)  In order to provide for just and equitable contribution in the event of joint liability under the Securities Act in any case in which either (i) the Shareholder, or any controlling person of the Shareholder, makes a claim for indemnification pursuant to this section but it is judicially determined (by the entry of a final judgment or decree by a court of competent jurisdiction and the expiration of time to appeal or the denial of the last right of appeal) that such indemnification may not be enforced in such case notwithstanding the fact that this section provides for indemnification in such case, or (ii) contribution under the Securities Act may be required on the part of the Shareholder or controlling person of the Shareholder in circumstances for which indemnification is not provided under this section, then, and in each such case, OHGI and the Shareholder will contribute to the aggregate losses, claims, damages or liabilities to which they may be subject (after contribution from others) in a manner that reflects, as near as practicable, the economic effect of the foregoing provisions of this section. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no person or entity guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 10(f) of the Securities Act) will be entitled to contribution from any person or entity who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation.

 

(vi)
  Delivery of Unlegended Shares.

 

(A)  Within three business days (such business day, the “Unlegended Shares Delivery Date”) after the business day on which OHGI has received (i) a notice that the Additional Compensation Shares have been sold either pursuant to, and in compliance with, the Registration Statement or Rule 144 under the Securities Act (“Rule 144”) and (ii) in the case of sales under Rule 144, customary representation letters of the Shareholder and Shareholder’s broker regarding compliance with the requirements of Rule 144, OHGI at its expense, (A) shall deliver the Additional Compensation Shares so sold without any restrictive legends relating to the Securities Act (the “Unlegended Shares”); and (B) shall cause the transmission of the certificates representing the Unlegended Shares together with a legended certificate representing the balance of the unsold Additional Compensation Shares, if any, to the Shareholder at the address specified in the notice of sale, via express courier, by electronic transfer or otherwise on or before the Unlegended Shares Delivery Date. Transfer fees shall be the responsibility of the Shareholder.

 

 19 

 

 

(B)  In lieu of delivering physical certificates representing the Unlegended Shares, if OHGI’s transfer agent is participating in the Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) Fast Automated Securities Transfer program, upon request of a Shareholder, so long as the certificates therefor do not bear a legend and the Shareholder is not obligated to return such certificate for the placement of a legend thereon, OHGI shall use its best efforts to cause its transfer agent to electronically transmit the Unlegended Shares by crediting the account of Shareholder’s broker with DTC through its Deposit/Withdrawal at Custodian system. Such delivery must be made on or before the Unlegended Shares Delivery Date but is subject to the cooperation of the Shareholder’s broker (the so-called DTC participant).

 

(C)  The Shareholder agrees that the removal of the restrictive legend from certificates representing the Additional Compensation Shares as set forth in this section is predicated upon OHGI’s reliance that the Shareholder will sell any Additional Compensation Shares pursuant to either the registration requirements of the Securities Act, including any applicable prospectus delivery requirements, or an exemption therefrom.

 

(vii)
  Rule 144. OHGI agrees that until all the Additional Compensation Shares have been sold under a Registration Statement or pursuant to Rule 144 or other available exemption from Securities Act registration requirements, it shall use its reasonable commercial efforts to keep current in filing all reports, statements and other materials required to be filed with the SEC to permit the Investors to sell the Additional Compensation Shares under Rule 144. OHGI shall use commercially reasonable efforts to facilitate sales of the Additional Compensation Shares under Rule 144, including the delivery of customary transfer agent instructions to OHGI’s transfer agent and causing its counsel to deliver any required opinion to OHGI’s transfer agent if resales under Rule 144 are permissible under the Securities Act.

 

 5.05 Public Status.  OHGI shall make any and all required filings under the Exchange Act so that it remains a reporting company under the Exchange Act and so that the OHGI Common Stock continues to be a publicly-traded security for a period of at least five (5) years from the Closing Date. OHGI shall exercise commercially reasonable efforts to maintain the listing of the OHGI Common Stock on NASDAQ during the five (5) years following the Closing Date.

 

5.06 Public Announcements.  Except as required by applicable law, OHGI and the Company shall consult with each other before issuing any press release or making any public statement with respect to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby. Each Stockholder shall be afforded the opportunity for meaningful consultation prior to OHGI issuing any press release or making any public statement should the contemplated press release or public statement be in reference to such Shareholder in any way.

(a) any notice or other communication from any person alleging that the consent of such person is or may be required in connection with any of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement;

 

 20

Browning to be elected as a director of the Company Board; it being understood that under all circumstances, OHGI will have the right to designate a majority of the members of the Company Board.

  

8.04  Restriction on Investment in Company by Third Parties. For a period of three (3) years after the Closing Date, the Company will not accept investment funds from any third party, or issue any of its securities, or permit the transfer or assignment of any of its securities without the express written approval of a designated member of the OHGI Board and the Shareholder.

 

8.05  Trading Restrictions. No stockholder of the Company, whether in such stockholder’s own capacity or through a representative, agent or affiliate, shall enter into or effect any “short sales” (as that term is defined in Rule 10a-1 of the Exchange Act) of OHGI Common Stock or any hedging transaction, including obtaining a borrowing, which establishes a net short position with respect to OHGI Common Stock.

 

8.06  Non-interference. Subject to the fiduciary obligations of the OHGI Board, William J.

 25 

 

 

8.07  Repayment of Loans that Shareholder Made to the Company. The Company shall repay loans made by the Shareholder to the Company, as itemized in Schedule 1.09, from the net profits of the Company.

 

8.08  Mutual Shareholder Right of First Refusal as to Control Shares.

 

(a)  OHGI Grant. OHGI hereby unconditionally and irrevocably grants to the Shareholder a Right of First Refusal to purchase all or any portion of Company Shares that OHGI has purchased from the Shareholder and that OHGI may propose to Transfer (as defined below) (or is required by law or other involuntary transfer). This right of first refusal shall not expire so long as the Shareholder maintains ownership of all of the Additional Company Shares.

 

(b)  Shareholder Grant. The Shareholder hereby unconditionally and irrevocably grants to OHGI a Right of First Refusal to purchase all or any portion of the Additional Company Shares. This right of first refusal shall expire upon the Shareholder’s exercise of the right of first refusal granted in the immediately preceding clause and the repurchase by the Shareholder of all of the OHGI purchased Company Shares.

 

(c)  In the event that either OHGI or the Shareholder proposes to Transfer any or all of the Control Shares or the Additional Company Shares, respectively, such party (the “Offering Party”) shall first offer such Company Shares to the other party (the “Other Party”) in accordance with the following provisions:

 

(i)  Notice and Terms. The Offering Party shall deliver a written notice (an “Offering Notice”) to the Other Party not later than sixty (60) days prior to the proposed date of consummation of the proposed Transfer stating (A) the Offering Party’s bona fide intention to Transfer such Company Shares, (B) the name and address of the proposed transferee, (C) the number of Company Shares to be transferred, and (D) the purchase price for each of the Company Shares and terms of payment for which the Offering Party proposes to Transfer such Company Shares. To exercise a Right of First Refusal under this Section 8.08, within thirty (30) days after receipt of the Offering Notice, the Other Party must deliver a written notice (the “Other Party Notice”) to the Offering Party of the Other Party’s intent to purchase some or all of such Company Shares. The Other Party Notice must indicate the number of Company Shares intended to be acquired. OHGI shall have the right to purchase or obtain such Company Shares from the Shareholder upon the terms of payment and at the price designated in the Offering Notice; however, the Shareholder shall have the right to purchase or obtain such Company Shares upon the terms of payment designated in the Offering Notice, at the lower of the price designated in the Offering Notice and the price at which such Company Shares were first acquired by OHGI from the Shareholder. If the Offering Notice provides for the payment of noncash consideration, the Other party at its option may pay the consideration in cash equal to the Other party’s good faith estimate of the present fair market value of the noncash consideration offered.

 

(ii)  If the Other Party elects not to purchase or obtain some or all of the Company Shares designated in the Offering Notice, the Offering Party may Transfer any Company Shares referred to in the Offering Notice and not acquired by the Other Party to the proposed transferee.

 

 26 

 

 

(d)  Restrictions on Transfer. Neither OHGI nor the Shareholder may sell or engage in any transaction which has resulted in or will result in a change in the beneficial or record ownership of any of the Company Shares held by such party, including without limitation a voluntary or involuntary sale, assignment, transfer, pledge, hypothecation, encumbrance, disposal, loan, gift, attachment or levy (each, a “Transfer”), except as provided in this Section 8.08, and any such Transfer of Company Shares or attempted Transfer of Company Shares in contravention of this Section 8.08 shall be void and ineffective for any purpose and shall not confer on any transferee or purported transferee any rights whatsoever. Notwithstanding the foregoing transfer restrictions, either party may Transfer Company Shares to any Affiliates or majority owned subsidiary provided that such party gives the other party not less than ten (10) days prior notice of such proposed Transfer and the proposed transferee agrees to be bound by the terms and provisions of this Section 8.08 and to become a party to this Agreement for purposes of Section 8.08 immediately upon receipt of such Company Shares.

 

(e)  Stock Certificate legend. Each certificate, instrument, or book entry representing Company Shares held by OHGI and the Shareholder or issued to any permitted transferee in connection with a Transfer permitted by Section 8.08(d) hereof shall be notated with the following legend:

 

THE SHARES EVIDENCED BY THIS CERTIFICATE ARE SUBJECT TO A SHAREHOLDER RIGHT OF FIRST REFUSAL AGREEMENT BY AND AMONG ONE HORIZION GROUP, INC. (“OHGI”), WILLIAM J. BROWNING (“BROWNING”) AND

Browning Productions & Entertainment, Inc.
, PROVIDING FOR A RIGHT OF FIRST REFUSAL TO PURCHASE THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE. A COPY OF SUCH AGREEMENT MAY BE OBTAINED FROM OHGI OR BROWNING.

 

8.09 NASDAQ Delisting of OHGI Common Stock. In the event that the prior to the disposition by the Shareholder of one-half of the aggregate of the Exchange Shares and the Additional Compensation Shares, OHGI Common Stock is delisted from the NASDAQ and any such delisting is not cured within sixty (60) days following the delisting, the Control Shares shall automatically revert to and become the property of the Shareholder. In such event, (i) OHGI shall promptly cause the Control Shares to be transferred to the Shareholder, and (ii) the Shareholder shall have no obligations to OHGI with respect to the additional Cash Compensation or the Additional Compensation Shares.

 

ARTICLE IX

TERMINATION

 

9.01 Termination.  This Agreement may be terminated at any time prior to the Closing:

 

(a) by mutual written consent of OHGI and the Company;

 

(b) by OHGI or the Company if the Closing shall not have occurred on or before July 31, 2018 (unless the failure to consummate the transactions by such date shall be due to the action or failure to act of the party seeking to terminate this Agreement which, in the case of the Company would include the failure of the Shareholder);

 

 27 

 

 

(c) by OHGI if: (i) the Company or the Shareholder shall have failed to timely comply in any material respect with any of the other covenants, conditions, terms or agreements contained in this Agreement to be complied with or performed by it, which breach is not cured within ten (10) days if capable of cure; or (ii) any representations and warranties of the Company Parties or the Shareholder contained in this Agreement shall have been materially false when made or on and as of the Closing Date; or

 

(d) by the Company if: (i) OHGI shall have failed to timely comply in any material respect with any of the covenants, conditions, terms or agreements contained in this Agreement to be complied with or performed by it, which breach is not cured within ten (10) days if capable of cure; or (ii) any representations and warranties of OHGI contained in this Agreement shall have been materially false when made or on and as of the Closing Date.

  

9.02 Effect of Termination.  In the event of the termination of this Agreement pursuant to this Article IX, all further obligations of the parties under this Agreement shall forthwith be terminated without any further liability of any party to the other parties; provided, however, that nothing contained in this Section 9.02 shall relieve any party from liability for any breach of this Agreement. Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason, each of the parties shall promptly cause to be returned to the other all documents and information obtained in connection with this Agreement and the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and all documents and information obtained in connection with the investigation of the other party’s business, operations and legal affairs, including any copies made of any such documents or information.

 

ARTICLE X

SURVIVAL OF REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES; INDEMNIFICATION

 

10.01. Survival. The representations and warranties, set forth in this Agreement, in any Exhibit or Schedule hereto and in any certificate or instrument delivered in connection herewith shall survive for a period of twelve (12) months after the Closing Date (“Warranty Period”) and shall thereupon terminate and expire and shall be of no force or effect thereafter, except that (i) the representation and warranty of the Shareholder in Section 3.01 as to the ownership of the Company Shares shall survive for the period equal to the applicable statute of limitations relating to said matter; (ii) with respect to any claim, written notice of which shall have been delivered to OHGI or the Shareholder, as the case may be, in accordance with the indemnification provisions of this Article X and prior to the end of the Warranty Period, such claim shall survive the termination of such Warranty Period for as long as such claim is unsettled, and (ii) with respect to any litigation which shall have been commenced to resolve such claim on or prior to such date.

 

10.02. Indemnification by Shareholder. Subject to the provisions of Section 10.05 below, the Shareholder hereby covenants and agrees with OHGI that Shareholder shall indemnify OHGI and its directors, officers, employees and Affiliates (as that term is defined in Rule 405 of the Securities Act), and each of their successors and assigns (individually, an “OHGI Indemnified Party”), and hold them harmless from, against and in respect of any and all costs, losses, claims, liabilities, fines, penalties, damages and expenses (including interest, if any, imposed in connection therewith, court costs and reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel) (collectively, “Damages”) incurred by any of them resulting from any misrepresentation, breach of any representation or warranty in this Agreement, or the non-fulfillment in any material respect of any agreement, covenant or obligation by the Shareholder made in this Agreement (including without limitation any Exhibit or Schedule hereto and any certificate or instrument delivered in connection herewith).

 

 28 

 

 

10.03. Indemnification by OHGI. Subject to the provisions of Section 10.05 below, OHGI hereby covenants and agrees with the Shareholder that OHGI shall indemnify the Shareholder (the “Shareholder Indemnified Party)” and hold him harmless from, against and in respect of any and all Damages incurred by the Shareholder Indemnified Party resulting from any misrepresentation, breach of any representation or warranty in this Agreement or the non-fulfillment in any material respect of any agreement, covenant or obligation by OHGI made in this Agreement (including without limitation any Exhibit or Schedule hereto and any certificate or instrument delivered in connection herewith).

 

10.04. Right to Defend. If the facts giving rise to any such indemnification shall involve any actual claim or demand by any third party against an OHGI Indemnified Party or Shareholder Indemnified Party (referred to herein as an “Indemnified Party”), then the Indemnified Party will give prompt written notice of any such claim to the indemnifying party, which notice shall set forth in reasonable detail the nature, basis and amount of such claim (the “Notice of Third Party Claim”). It is a condition precedent to the applicable indemnifying party’s obligation to indemnify the applicable Indemnified Party for such claim that such Indemnified Party timely provide to such indemnifying party the applicable Notice of Third Party Claim, provided that the failure to provide such Notice of Third Party Claim shall only relieve such indemnifying party of its or his obligation to indemnify for such claim only to the extent that such indemnifying party has been prejudiced by such Indemnified Party’s failure to give the Notice of Third Party Claim as required. The indemnifying party receiving such Notice of Third Party Claim may (without prejudice to the right of any Indemnified Party to participate at its own expense through counsel of its own choosing) undertake the defense of such claims or actions at its expense with counsel chosen and paid by its giving written notice (the “Election to Defend”) to the Indemnified Party within thirty (30) days after the date the Notice of Third Party Claim is deemed received; provided, however, that the indemnifying party receiving the Notice of Third Party Claim may not settle such claims or actions without the consent of the Indemnified Party, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, except if the sole relief provided is monetary damages to be borne solely by the indemnifying party; and, provided further, if the defendants in any action include both the indemnifying party and the Indemnified Party, and the Indemnified Party shall have reasonably concluded that counsel selected by the indemnifying party has a conflict of interest because of the availability of different or additional defenses to the parties, the Indemnified Party shall cooperate in the defense of such claim and shall make available to the indemnifying party pertinent information under its control relating thereto, but the Indemnified Party shall have the right to retain its own counsel and to control its defense and shall be entitled to be reimbursed for all reasonable costs and expenses incurred in such separate defense. In no event will the provisions of this Article reduce or lessen the obligations of the parties under this Article, if prior to the expiration of the foregoing thirty (30) day notice period, the Indemnified Party furnishing the Notice of Third Party Claim responds to a third-party claim if such action is reasonably required to minimize damages or avoid a forfeiture or penalty or because of any requirements imposed by law. If the indemnifying party receiving the Notice of Third Party Claim does not duly give the Election to Defend as provided above, then it will be deemed to have irrevocably waived its right to defend or settle such claims, but it will have the right, at its expense, to attend, but not otherwise to participate in, proceedings with such third parties; and if the indemnifying party does duly give the Election to Defend, then the Indemnified Party giving the Notice of Third Party Claim will have the right at its expense, to attend, but not otherwise to participate in, such proceedings. The parties to this Agreement will not be entitled to dispute the amount of any Damages (including reasonable attorney’s fees and expenses) related to such third-party claim resolved as provided above.

 

 29 

 

 

10.05 Limitation on Rights of Indemnification.

 

(a) No OHGI Indemnified Party shall have the right to indemnification under this Agreement unless and until the aggregate amount of any and all such indemnification claims made by an OHGI Indemnified Party under this Agreement exceeds $50,000 (the “Basket”). If claims asserted by the OHGI Indemnified Parties exceed the Basket, OHGI Indemnified Parties shall be entitled to receive the amount of Damages in excess of the Basket. If OHGI Indemnified Parties are entitled to any further payments in respect of indemnifications claims, they shall be made on a dollar-for-dollar basis subject to any limitations contained herein. The Basket shall not apply to claims relating to the representation and warranty of the Shareholder in Section 2.01 as to the ownership of the Company Shares.

 

The Shareholder may satisfy any indemnification claims hereunder by delivery of shares of OHGI Common Stock. Such shares shall be valued at the greater of (i) $1.00 US Dollar per share and (ii) the value used to determine the number of shares issued in respect of the Exchange Shares.

 

(b) The liability of the Shareholder pursuant to this Article X shall not exceed the value of the Exchange Shares received by him as of the date of the delivery of such Exchange Shares to the Shareholder; provided, however, that the provisions of this Section 10.05(b) shall not apply to: (i) breaches of Shareholder’s representations and warranties relating to ownership of Company Shares, and (ii) claims arising out of fraud.

 

(c) Except in the event of fraud, the remedies provided in Sections 10.02 and 10.03 hereof shall be the sole and exclusive remedies of OHGI Indemnified Parties and Shareholder Indemnified Party from and after the Closing in connection with any breach of representation or warranty or non-performance, partial or total, of any covenant or agreement contained in this Agreement; provided, that, nothing contained herein shall prevent any party from seeking equitable remedies (including specific performance or injunctive relief) in connection therewith.

 

(d)  Damages payable by Shareholder under this Article X shall not include punitive damages, damages related to mental or emotional distress, lost profits, exemplary damages, consequential damages or damages calculated as a multiple of earnings.

 

 30 

 

 

(e)  Damages otherwise subject to indemnity hereunder will be calculated after application of any received insurance proceeds actually received by OHGI or the Company (net of costs of recovery and the value of any associated increase in premiums).

 

(f)  In calculating any Damages, there shall be deducted any indemnification, contribution or other similar payment actually recovered by any Buyer Indemnified Party from any third-party directly in connection with such claim, less any costs of receiving such recovery.
