FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

Certain statements we make in this prospectus and the documents incorporated or deemed to be incorporated by reference herein may constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the federal securities laws and are intended to qualify for the safe harbor from liability established by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including statements regarding (i) the Company’s beliefs and expectations regarding its business strategies and competitive strengths, and its ability to maintain and advance its market share and position, grow its business organically and through acquisitions, and capitalize on customer demand; (ii) the Company’s beliefs regarding competition, its relative market positioning and the competitive factors in the industries it serves; (iii) the Company’s beliefs regarding its acquisition platform and ability to execute on and successfully integrate strategic acquisitions; (iv) the Company’s beliefs regarding the recurring and repeat nature of its business; (v) the Company’s expectations regarding industry trends and their impact on its business, and its ability to capitalize on the opportunities presented in the markets it serves; (vi) the Company’s intent to continue to grow its business, both organically and through acquisitions, and the Company’s beliefs regarding the impact of its business strategies on its growth; (vii) the Company’s expectations regarding the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its business and future financial results, the precautionary measures the Company is taking in response to the pandemic and the impact of those measures on the Company’s business and future financial results; (viii) the Company’s plans and beliefs with respect to its leadership development platform; (ix) the Company’s beliefs regarding its customer relationships and plans to grow existing business and expand service offerings; (x) the Company’s beliefs regarding the sufficiency of its properties and facilities; (xi) the Company’s expectations regarding labor matters; (xii) the Company’s beliefs regarding the adequacy of its insurance coverage and at reasonable cost; (xiii) the Company’s expectations regarding the increased costs and burdens of being a public company; (xiv) the Company’s expectations regarding the cost of compliance with laws and regulations; (xv) the Company’s expectations and beliefs regarding accounting and tax matters; (xvi) the Company’s beliefs regarding the sufficiency of its current sources of liquidity to fund its future liquidity requirements, the Company’s expectations regarding the types of future liquidity requirements and its expectations regarding the availability of future sources of liquidity; and (xvii) the Company’s intent to settle future dividends on Series A Preferred Stock in shares. These projections and statements are based on management’s estimates and assumptions with respect to future events and financial performance and are believed to be reasonable, though are inherently uncertain and difficult to predict. Actual results could differ materially from those projected as a result of certain factors. We believe these factors include, but are not limited to, those described under “Risk Factors” in our most recent annual report on Form 10-K, as amended or supplemented by subsequent quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, which have been or will be incorporated by reference into this prospectus, as well as in this prospectus or in any prospectus supplement hereto.

You should also read carefully the factors described or referred to in the “Risk Factors” section of this prospectus and any prospectus supplement to better understand the risks and uncertainties inherent in our business and underlying any forward-looking statements. Any forward-looking statements that we make in this prospectus or any prospectus supplement speak only as of the date of such statement, and, unless required by law, we undertake no obligation to publicly update or review any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise.

On March 24, 2020, we entered into a registration rights agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) with Viking Global Opportunities Liquid Portfolio Sub-Master LP (“Viking Liquid LP”) to register for resale the 25,000,000 shares of our common stock acquired by Viking Liquid LP in our initial public offering and the 8,333,333 shares of our common stock held by Viking Liquid LP’s as a result of its exercise of 25,000,000 warrants on October 1, 2019. Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, we agreed to, subject to certain terms and conditions, file with the SEC a registration statement registering the resale of the common stock held by certain entities managed by Viking Global Investors LP. Effective as of April 28, 2020, Viking Liquid LP transferred all 33,333,333 shares of common stock it held to its affiliate, Viking Global Opportunities Illiquid Investments Sub-Master LP (“Opportunities Fund”), following which such entity became party to the Registration Rights Agreement. As of April 27, 2021, Opportunities Fund owned 33,333,333 shares of our common stock, or approximately 16.6% of our outstanding shares of common stock.

USE OF PROCEEDS

We will not receive any proceeds from the sale of any Shares by the selling stockholders.

The selling stockholders will receive all of the net proceeds from the sale of any Shares under this prospectus. The selling stockholders will pay any underwriting discounts and commissions and expenses incurred by the selling stockholders for brokerage, accounting, tax, legal services or any other expenses incurred by the selling stockholders in disposing of these shares. We will bear all other costs, fees and expenses incurred in effecting the registration of the Shares covered by this prospectus.

SELLING STOCKHOLDERS

This prospectus covers the public resale of the Shares owned by the selling stockholders listed in the table below. The selling stockholders may from time to time offer and sell pursuant to this prospectus any or all of the Shares owned by them. The selling stockholders, however, make no representation that the Shares will be offered for sale. The table below presents information regarding the selling stockholders and the Shares that they may offer and sell from time to time under this prospectus.

The following table sets forth:

 

   

the number of Shares beneficially owned by the selling stockholders and their affiliates prior to the sale of the Shares covered by this prospectus;

 

   

the number of Shares that may be offered by the selling stockholders pursuant to this prospectus;

 

   

the number of Shares to be beneficially owned by the selling stockholders and their affiliates following the sale of any Shares covered by this prospectus; and

 

   

the percentage of our issued and outstanding common stock to be beneficially owned by the selling stockholders and their affiliates following the sale of all Shares covered by this prospectus.

Table of Contents

All information with respect to common stock ownership of the selling stockholders has been furnished by or on behalf of the selling stockholders and is as of April 27, 2021. We believe, based on information supplied by the selling stockholders, that except as may otherwise be indicated in the table below, the selling stockholders and their affiliates listed in any footnote to the table below have sole voting and dispositive power with respect to the common stock reported as beneficially owned by them. Because the selling stockholders may sell some or all of the Shares included in this prospectus, and because there are currently no agreements, arrangements or understandings with respect to the sale of any of the Shares, no estimate can be given as to the number of Shares available for resale hereby that will be held by the selling stockholders in the future. In addition, the selling stockholders may have sold, transferred or otherwise disposed of, or may sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of, at any time and from time to time, the common stock they hold in transactions exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act after the date on which they provided the information set forth on the table below. We have, therefore, assumed for the purposes of the following table, that the selling stockholders will sell all of the Shares owned beneficially by them and their affiliates listed in any footnote to the table below that are covered by this prospectus. Unless otherwise indicated in the table below, Shares in the table below refer to shares of outstanding common stock.

(1)

The Shares are held by Opportunities Fund, which has the power to dispose of and vote the shares directly owned by it, which power may be exercised by its general partner, Viking Global Opportunities Portfolio GP LLC (“Opportunities GP”), and Viking Global Investors LP (“VGI”), which provides managerial services to Opportunities Fund. O. Andreas Halvorsen, David C. Ott and Rose Shabet, as Executive Committee members of Viking Global Partners LLC (the general partner of VGI) and Viking Global Opportunities GP LLC (the sole member of Opportunities GP) have shared power to direct the voting and disposition of investments beneficially owned by VGI and Opportunities GP.

Beneficial ownership for the purposes of the table above is determined in accordance with the rules and regulations of the SEC. These rules generally provide that a person is the beneficial owner of securities if such person has or shares the power to vote or direct the voting thereof, or to dispose or direct the disposition thereof or has the right to acquire such powers within 60 days. Except as disclosed in the table above, we believe that the selling stockholders and their affiliates identified in the table above possess sole voting and investment power over all shares of common stock shown as beneficially owned by such selling stockholders and affiliates.

Material Relationships

On March 24, 2020, we entered into the Registration Rights Agreement with Viking Liquid LP for the resale of the shares it owned from time to time. Effective as of April 28, 2020, Viking Liquid LP transferred all 33,333,333 shares of common stock it held to its affiliate, Opportunities Fund, following which such entity became party to the Registration Rights Agreement. This registration statement is being filed to satisfy our obligations with respect to the Shares under the Registration Rights Agreement.

Resales

Additional selling stockholders not named in this prospectus will not be able to use this prospectus for resales until they are named in the table above by prospectus supplement or post-effective amendment. Transferees, successors and donees of identified selling stockholders will not be able to use this prospectus for resales until they are named in the table above by prospectus supplement or post-effective amendment. If required, we will add transferees, successors and donees by prospectus supplement in instances where the transferee, successor or donee has acquired its shares from the selling stockholders named in this prospectus after the effective date of this prospectus.

PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION

We are registering 33,333,333 Shares. The selling stockholders, which as used herein includes donees, pledgees, transferees or other successors-in-interest selling shares of common stock or interests in shares of common stock received after the date of this prospectus from the selling stockholders as a gift, pledge, partnership distribution or other transfer, may, from time to time, sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of any or all of the Shares on any stock exchange, market or trading facility on which our common stock is traded or in private transactions. 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, or at negotiated prices.

The selling stockholders may use any one or more of the following methods when disposing of Shares:

 

   

to or through underwriters or dealers pursuant to an underwritten resale offering;

 

   

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;

 

   

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 SEC;

 

   

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; 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 they own and, if they default in the performance of their secured obligations, the pledgees or secured parties may offer and sell the Shares, 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 any donee, pledgee, transferee or other successors-in-interest as selling stockholders under this prospectus. The selling stockholders also may transfer the Shares in other circumstances, in which case the donees, transferees, pledgees or other successors-in-interest will be the selling beneficial owners for purposes of this prospectus.

In connection with the sale of the Shares 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 such Shares in the course of hedging the positions they assume. The selling stockholders may also sell Shares short and deliver these securities to close out their short positions, or loan or pledge the common stock to broker-dealers 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 or create one or more derivative securities which require the delivery to such broker-dealer or other financial institution of the 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).

To the extent required, the Shares to be sold, the names of the selling stockholders, the respective 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 Shares may be sold in these jurisdictions only through registered or licensed brokers or dealers. In addition, in some states, the Shares may not be sold unless they have been registered or qualified for sale or an exemption from registration or qualification requirements is available and is complied with.

We have advised the selling stockholders that the anti-manipulation rules of Regulation M under the Exchange Act may apply to sales of Shares in the market and to the activities of the selling stockholders and their affiliates. In addition, to the extent applicable we will make copies of this prospectus (as it may be supplemented or amended from time to time) available to the selling stockholders for the purpose of satisfying the prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act. The selling stockholders may indemnify any broker-dealer that participates in transactions involving the sale of the Shares against certain liabilities, including liabilities arising under the Securities Act.

We have agreed to indemnify the selling stockholders, and may agree to indemnify any underwriters for the Shares, against liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act and state securities laws, relating to the registration of the Shares offered by this prospectus.

Preferred Stock

Additional Series of Preferred Stock

Under the certificate of incorporation, without stockholder approval, the Company’s board of directors is authorized by resolution to create and issue one or more series of preferred stock of the Company (in addition to the Series A Preferred Stock), and, with respect to each such series, to determine the number of shares constituting the series and the designations and the powers (including voting powers), preferences and rights, if any, which may include dividend rights, conversion or exchange rights, redemption rights and terms and liquidation preferences, and the qualifications, limitations and restrictions, if any, of the series. The Company’s board of directors may therefore create and issue one or more new series of preferred stock with voting power and preferences and rights that could adversely affect the holders of the Company’s common stock and which could have certain anti-takeover effects. Before the Company may issue any new series of preferred stock, our board of directors will be required to adopt resolutions creating and designating such series of preferred stock and certificate of designations setting forth a copy of such resolutions will be required to be executed, acknowledged and filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware.

Series A Preferred Stock

As of December 31, 2020, the Company had 4,000,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock issued and outstanding. The designations and the powers, preferences and rights, and the qualifications, limitations and restrictions of the Series A Preferred Stock are set forth in our certificate of incorporation.

Dividends

Subject to applicable law and the rights, if any, of any series of preferred stock of the Company then outstanding ranking senior to the Series A Preferred Stock as to dividends and on parity with the rights, if any, of any series of the Company’s preferred stock then outstanding ranking on parity with the Series A Preferred Stock and, if the Average Price (as defined in the certificate of incorporation) per share of the Company’s common stock (subject to adjustment in accordance with the certificate of incorporation) is $11.50 or more for any ten consecutive trading days, the holders of the Series A Preferred Stock will be entitled to receive, in respect of each Dividend Year (as defined below), in the aggregate, the “Annual Dividend Amount,” which is calculated as follows (the “Annual Dividend Amount”):

A X B, where:

A = an amount equal to 20% of the increase (if any) in the value of a share of the Company’s common stock, such increase calculated as being the difference between (i) the Average Price (as defined in the certificate of incorporation) per share of common stock over the last ten consecutive trading days of the Dividend Year for such Dividend Year (the “Dividend Price”) and (ii) (x) if no Annual Dividend Amount has previously been paid, a price of $10.00 per share of common stock, or (y) if an Annual Dividend Amount has previously been paid, the highest Dividend Price for any prior Dividend Year (subject to adjustment in accordance with the certificate of incorporation); and

B = 141,194,638 shares, being a number of shares of the Company’s common stock equal to the number of ordinary shares of the Company’s predecessor outstanding immediately following the acquisition of APi Group, Inc. by the Company (the “APi Acquisition”), including any ordinary shares issued pursuant to the exercise of warrants of the Company, but excluding any ordinary shares issued to shareholders or other beneficial owners of APi Group, Inc. in connection with the APi Acquisition, which such number of shares is subject to adjustment as provided in the certificate of incorporation (the “Series A Preferred Dividend Equivalent”).

“Dividend Year” means the Company’s financial year (which may be twelve months or any longer or shorter period) as determined by the Company’s board of directors, except that (i) in the event of the Company’s dissolution, the relevant Dividend Year will end on the trading day immediately prior to the date of dissolution and (ii) in the event of the automatic conversion of shares of Series A Preferred Stock into shares of common stock of the Company, the relevant Dividend Year will end on the trading day immediately prior to the date of such automatic conversion.

Table of Contents

The Annual Dividend Amount is payable in shares of the Company’s common stock or cash, as determined by the Company’s board of directors. Each Annual Dividend Amount will be divided between the holders of Series A Preferred Stock pro rata to the number of Series A Preferred Stock held by them on the last day of the relevant Dividend Year (the “Dividend Date”). If the Company’s board of directors determines to pay the Annual Dividend Amount in shares of common stock, then each holder of a share of Series A Preferred Stock will be entitled to receive such number of whole shares of common stock as is determined by dividing the pro rata amount of the Annual Dividend Amount to which such holders is entitled, by the relevant Dividend Price (provided that any fractional shares of common stock due pursuant to such calculation shall not be paid and instead the nearest lower whole number of shares of common stock will be paid).

Subject to applicable law and the rights, if any, of any series of preferred stock of the Company then outstanding ranking senior to the Series A Preferred Stock as to dividends and on parity with the common stock of the Company and any series of preferred stock of the Company ranking on parity with such common stock, (i) a dividend per share of Series A Preferred Stock equal to the product obtained by multiplying the number of shares of common stock into which such shares of Series A Preferred Stock could then be converted, by the dividend payable on each such share of common stock, and (ii) a dividend per share of Series A Preferred Stock equal to the amount determined by dividing an amount equal to 20% of the dividend which would be distributable on such number of shares of common stock equal to the Series A Preferred Dividend Equivalent, by the number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock outstanding.

Automatic Conversion

The Series A Preferred Stock will be automatically converted into shares of the Company’s common stock on a one-for-one basis (subject to adjustment in accordance with the certificate of incorporation) on the last day of the seventh full financial year of the Company following October 1, 2019 (or if such date is not a trading day, the first trading day immediately following such date) (the “Automatic Conversion”).

Optional Conversion

By notice in writing and surrender of the relevant certificate or certificates to the Company, a holder of Series A Preferred Stock will be able to convert some or all of such holder’s Series A Preferred Stock into an equal number of shares of the Company’s common stock (subject to adjustment in accordance with the certificate of incorporation) and, in such circumstances, the shares of Series A Preferred Stock that were subject to such notice will be converted into shares of common stock on the fifth trading day after receipt by the Company of such written notice (the “Optional Conversion”). In the event of an Optional Conversion, no relevant portion of the Annual Dividend Amount will be payable in respect of those shares of Series A Preferred Stock that are converted into shares of common stock for the Dividend Year in which the date of the Optional Conversion occurs.

Voting Rights

Each holder of Series A Preferred Stock is entitled to one vote per share of Series A Preferred Stock on all matters submitted to a vote of stockholders of the Company generally, voting together with holders of the Company’s common stock as a single class. The holders of Series A Preferred Stock also have the right to vote separately as a single class on any amendment to the certificate of incorporation, whether by merger, consolidation or otherwise, that would alter or change the powers, preferences or rights or the qualifications, limitations or restrictions of the Series A Preferred Stock so as to affect them adversely and as provided by applicable Delaware law.

Exclusive Forum

The Company’s certificate of incorporation provides that unless we consent in writing to the selection of an alternative forum, the Delaware Court of Chancery will be the sole and exclusive forum for: (1) derivative actions or proceedings brought on behalf of us; (2) actions asserting a claim of fiduciary duty owed by any of our directors, officers or employees to us or our stockholder; (3) civil actions to interpret, apply, enforce or determine the validity of the certificate of incorporation or bylaws; or (4) actions asserting a claim governed by the internal affairs doctrine. If the Delaware Court of Chancery lacks jurisdiction over any of the foregoing actions or proceedings, the certificate of incorporation provides that the sole and exclusive forum for such actions or proceedings will be another state or federal court located in the State of Delaware, as long as such court has personal jurisdiction over the parties. In addition, the certificate of incorporation provides that, unless we consent in writing to the selection of an alternative forum, the federal district courts of the United States will, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, be the sole and exclusive forum for any action asserting a claim arising under the Securities Act.

Indemnification of Directors and Officers

Under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “DGCL”), a Delaware corporation may include in its certificate of incorporation a provision that, subject to the limitations described below, eliminates or limits the personal liability of a director to the corporation or its stockholders for monetary damages for breaches of fiduciary duty as a director. Such a provision may not eliminate or limit the liability of a director for (i) any breach of the duty of loyalty to the corporation or its stockholders, (ii) acts or omissions not in good faith or that involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (iii) the willful or negligent payment of unlawful dividends or purchases or redemptions of shares of stock, or (iv) transactions from which such director derived an improper personal benefit. The Company’s certificate of incorporation includes a provision providing that directors of the Company shall not be liable to the Company or our stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty, except to the extent such exemption or limitation is not permitted by the DGCL.

The DGCL also provides that a Delaware corporation has the power to indemnify any person who 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) 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 of another entity, against reasonable expenses (including attorneys’ fees) and, in actions not brought by or in the right of the corporation, judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement, in each case, actually and reasonably incurred in connection with such action, suit or proceeding, but only if such person acted in a manner reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation and, with respect to any criminal action, had no reasonable cause to believe his or her conduct was unlawful, except that in any action brought by or in the right of the corporation, such indemnification may not be made if such person is adjudged liable to the corporation (unless otherwise determined by the court in which such action, suit or proceeding was brought or the Delaware Court of Chancery). In addition, under Delaware law, to the extent that a present or former director or officer of a Delaware corporation has been successful on the merits or otherwise in defense of any action, suit or proceeding referred to above or any claim, issue or matter therein, he or she must be indemnified by the corporation against expenses (including attorneys’ fees) actually and reasonably incurred by him or her. Furthermore, under Delaware law, a Delaware corporation is permitted to maintain directors’ and officers’ insurance.

The Company’s bylaws require the Company to indemnify any person who is or was a party or is threatened to be made a party to or is otherwise involved in any action, suit or proceeding described above by reason of the fact that such person is or was a director of the Company or, while a director or officer of the Company, is or was serving at the request of the Company as a director, officer, employee or agent of another entity, to the fullest extent permitted by law. The Company’s bylaws also require the Company to pay the legal expenses (including attorneys’ fees) of any such person in defending any such action, suit or proceeding in advance of its final disposition subject, in the case of present directors and officers, to the provision by such director or officer of an undertaking to repay the amounts advanced if it is ultimately determined that such director or officer is not entitled to be indemnified under the bylaws or otherwise.

Anti-Takeover Effects of Delaware Law and the Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws

Delaware law and the Company’s certificate of incorporation and bylaws contain provisions that may prevent or discourage a third party from acquiring the Company, even if the acquisition would be beneficial to our stockholders.

Pursuant to the certificate of incorporation, our board of directors have the authority to create one or more series of preferred stock of the Company (in addition to the Series A Preferred Stock) and to fix the designations and the powers, preferences and rights, if any, and the qualifications, limitations and restrictions, if any, of shares of such new series of preferred stock of the Company and to issue shares of such series without a stockholder vote, which could be used to dilute the ownership of a hostile acquiror.

Pursuant to the certificate of incorporation, our board of directors have the power to amend the bylaws of the Company, which may allow our board of directors to take certain actions to prevent an unsolicited takeover.

The Company is also subject to Delaware law prohibiting the Company from engaging in any “business combination” with an “interested stockholder” for a period of three years subsequent to the time that the stockholder became an interested stockholder unless:

 

 

prior to such time, our board of directors approved either the business combination or the transaction in which the stockholder became an interested stockholder;

 

 

upon completion of the transaction that resulted in the stockholder becoming an interested stockholder, the interested stockholder owns at least 85% of the outstanding voting stock (with certain exclusions); or

 

 

at or after the person becomes an interested stockholder, the business combination is approved by our board of directors and authorized by a vote of at least 66 2/3% of the outstanding voting stock of the Company not owned by the interested stockholder.

For purposes of Delaware law, an “interested stockholder” generally is defined as an entity or person (other than the corporation and any direct or indirect majority-owned subsidiary of the corporation) directly or indirectly beneficially owning 15% or more of the outstanding voting stock of the corporation and any entity or person affiliated or associated with such entity or person.

For purposes of Delaware law, a “business combination” includes mergers, asset sales and other transactions resulting in financial benefit to a stockholder. This Delaware law could prohibit or delay mergers or other takeover or change of control attempts with respect to the Company and, accordingly, may discourage attempts that might result in a premium over the market price for the shares held by stockholders of the Company.

Item 15.

Indemnification of Directors and Officers.

Section 102(b)(7) of the DGCL permits a corporation, in its certificate of incorporation, to limit or eliminate the personal liability of a director to the corporation or its stockholders for monetary damages for breaches of fiduciary duty as a director, except for liability (a) for any breach of the director’s duty of loyalty to the corporation or its stockholders, (b) for acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (c) under Section 174 of the DGCL or (d) for any transaction from which the director derived an improper personal benefit.

Under Section 145 of the DGCL, 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 (other than an action by or in the right of the corporation) by reason of the fact that the 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, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise) against expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by the person if such person acted in good faith and in a manner such person 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 such person’s conduct was unlawful. In the case of an action brought by or in the right of a corporation, the corporation may indemnify any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any such threatened, pending or completed action by reason of the fact that the 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, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise) only against expenses (including attorneys’ fees) actually and reasonably incurred by such person in connection with the defense or settlement of such action if such person acted in good faith and in a manner such person reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, 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 the appropriate court finds that, in view of all the circumstances of the case, such person is fairly and reasonably entitled to indemnity for such expenses as the court shall deem proper.

As permitted by Section 102(b)(7) of the DGCL, the Company’s certificate of incorporation provides that no director of the Company shall be liable to the Company or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director except to the extent that such exemption from liability or limitation thereof is not permitted under the DGCL as currently in effect or as the same may be amended. This provision in the Company’s certificate of incorporation does not eliminate the directors’ fiduciary duties, 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 of the Company may be subject to personal liability for breach of the director’s duty of loyalty to the Company, for acts or omissions not in good faith or involving intentional misconduct, for knowing violations of 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 applicable law, such as the United States federal securities laws or state or federal environmental laws.

Table of Contents

The Company’s bylaws also provide that the Company is required to indemnify and advance expenses to its present and former officers and directors to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.

  (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:

  (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 this registration statement.

  (2)

That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, 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.

 

II-2

  (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.

 

  (4)

That, for the purpose of determining liability under the Securities Act to any purchaser:

 

  (i)

Each prospectus filed by the registrant pursuant to Rule 424(b)(3) shall be deemed to be part of this registration statement as of the date the filed prospectus was deemed part of and included in this registration statement; and

 

  (ii)

Each prospectus required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424(b)(2), (b)(5) or (b)(7) as part of a registration statement in reliance on Rule 430B relating to an offering made pursuant to Rule 415(a)(1)(i), (vii) or (x) for the purpose of providing the information required by Section 10(a) of the Securities Act shall be deemed to be part of and included in this registration statement as of the earlier of the date such form of prospectus is first used after effectiveness or the date of the first contract of sale of securities in the offering described in the prospectus. As provided in Rule 430B, for liability purposes of the issuer and any person that is at that date an underwriter, such date shall be deemed to be a new effective date of the registration statement relating to the securities in the registration statement to which the prospectus relates, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof; provided, however, that no statement made in a registration statement or prospectus that is part of this registration statement or made in a document incorporated or deemed incorporated by reference into this registration statement or prospectus that is part of this registration statement will, as to a purchaser with a time of contract of sale prior to such effective date, supersede or modify any statement that was made in this registration statement or prospectus that was part of this registration statement or made in any such document immediately prior to such effective date.

 

  (5)

That, for the purpose of determining liability of the registrant under the Securities Act to any purchaser in the initial distribution of the securities, the undersigned registrant undertakes that in a primary offering of securities of the undersigned registrant pursuant to this registration statement, regardless of the underwriting method used to sell the securities to the purchaser, if the securities are offered or sold to such purchaser by means of any of the following communications, the undersigned registrant will be a seller to the purchaser and will be considered to offer or sell such securities to such purchaser:

 

  (i)

Any preliminary prospectus or prospectus of the undersigned registrant relating to the offering required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424;

 

  (ii)

Any free writing prospectus relating to the offering prepared by or on behalf of the undersigned registrant or used or referred to by the undersigned registrant;

 

  (iii)

The portion of any other free writing prospectus relating to the offering containing material information about the undersigned registrant or its securities provided by or on behalf of the undersigned registrant; and

 

  (iv)

Any other communication that is an offer in the offering made by the undersigned registrant to the purchaser.

Table of Contents
  (b)

The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each filing of the registrant’s annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plan’s annual report pursuant to Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act) that is incorporated by reference in this 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 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 SEC such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities 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 Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.
