The information in Items 3.03 and 5.02 below are incorporated herein by reference.
Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.
On April 9, 2014, DigiPath, Inc. (the “Registrant”) invested $1,000,000 in its wholly-owned subsidiary, DigiPath, Corp., a Kansas corporation, in exchange for 3,030,303 shares of DigiPath, Corp.
Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.
The information in Item 3.03 below is incorporated herein by reference.
Item 3.03 Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders.
On April 9, 2014, the Registrant entered into various Series A Convertible Preferred Stock Purchase Agreements with certain accredited investors (the “Investors”) pursuant to which the Registrant agreed to issue 6,000,000 shares, in the aggregate, of a newly formed Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series A Preferred”) in exchange for $6,000,000, in the aggregate, which consisted of money paid by investors and advances made to the Registrant by such Investors (each agreement, a “Securities Purchase Agreement” and collectively, the “Securities Purchase Agreements”). All the Securities Purchase Agreements have the same terms, whereby the shares of Series A Preferred are convertible after three months from the date of issue based on a conversion formula equal to the price per share ($1.00) divided by a conversion price equal to the lesser of (A) $0.02 and (B) seventy percent (70%) of the average of the three (3) lowest daily volume weighted average prices (“VWAPs”) occurring during the twenty (20) consecutive trading days immediately preceding the applicable conversion date on which the Holder elects to convert any shares of Series A Preferred Stock. The conversion price is further adjustable in the event of stock splits and other adjustments in the Registrant’s capitalization, and in the event of certain negative actions undertaken by the Registrant. At a conversion price equal to $0.02 per share, the Series A Preferred are convertible into 300,000,000 shares of the common stock of the Registrant . No holder is permitted to convert its shares of Series A Preferred Stock if such conversion would cause the holder to beneficially own more than 4.99% of the issued and outstanding common stock of the Registrant immediately after such conversion, unless waived by such holder by providing at least sixty-five days’ notice.
The additional terms of the Series A Preferred include the following:
|·||The shares of Series A Preferred are entitled to dividends when, as and if declared by the Board as to the shares of the common stock of the Registrant, but only with respect to the shares under the beneficial ownership limitation described above.|
|·||Upon the liquidation or dissolution of the Registrant, or any merger or sale of all or substantially all of the assets, the shares of Series A Preferred are entitled to receive, prior to any distribution to the holders of common stock, 100% of the purchase price plus all accrued but unpaid dividends.|
|·||The Series A Preferred plus all declared but unpaid dividends thereon automatically will be converted into common stock, at the then applicable conversion rate, upon the affirmative vote of 50% of the outstanding shares of Series A Preferred.|
|- 2 -|
|·||Each share of Series A Preferred will carry a number of votes equal to the number of shares of common stock then issuable upon its conversion into common stock, e.g., only with respect to the shares under the beneficial ownership limitation described above. The Series A Preferred generally will vote together with the common stock and not as a separate class, except as provided below.|
|·||Consent of the holders of the outstanding Series A Preferred will be required in order for the Registrant to: (i) amend or change the rights, preferences, privileges or powers of, or the restrictions provided for the benefit of, the Series A Preferred; (ii) authorize, create or issue shares of any class of stock having rights, preferences, privileges or powers superior to the Series A Preferred; (iii) reclassify any outstanding shares into shares having rights, preferences, privileges or powers superior to the Series A Preferred; or (iv) amend the Registrant’s Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws in a manner that adversely affects the rights of the Series A Preferred.|
|·||Holders of Series A Preferred will be entitled to unlimited “piggyback” registration rights on registrations by the Registrant, subject to pro rata cutback at any underwriter’s discretion. The registration rights may be transferred to a transferree who acquires all of the Series A Preferred.|
The issuance of the Series A Preferred to Investors was intended to be exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) pursuant to Section 4(2) thereof and Rule 506 of Regulation D (“Regulation D”) as promulgated by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”) under the Securities Act, as the Series A Preferred was issued to accredited investors, without a view to distribution and were not issued through any general solicitation or advertisement. The Series A Preferred issued to Investors may not be offered or sold in the United States unless they are registered under the Securities Act, or an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act is available. No registration statement covering these securities has been filed with the Commission or with any state securities commission. A copy of the Certificate of Designations, Preferences, Rights and Limitations of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock is attached as Exhibit 3.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and is incorporated herein by reference. A copy of the form of Securities Purchase Agreement is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and is incorporated herein by reference.
The Registrant invested $1,000,000 of the gross proceeds received from the sale of its Series A Preferred (the “Gross Proceeds”) into DigiPath, Corp. for general working capital purposes in its existing digital pathology business. The remaining Gross Proceeds will be used to explore new lines of business associated with the research, development, licensing and operation of botanical and nutri-pharmaceutical products and services, including, without limitation, the licensing of brand name nutri-pharmaceutical products.

(2) Stated Value . Each share of Series A Preferred stock will have stated value of $0.001 per share (the “ Stated Value ”).

In the event of any liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Corporation, either voluntary or involuntary (a “ Liquidation Event ”), subject to the rights of any other series of Preferred Stock that are in existence or may, from time to time, come into existence, the cash and other assets of the Corporation available for distribution to shareholders shall be distributed among the holders of the Series A Preferred Stock, prior to any amount being distributed to or among the holders of Common Stock, such that for each share of Series A Preferred Stock, a holder of Series A Preferred Stock shall be entitled to receive an amount equal to the Purchase Price, as adjusted for any stock dividends, combinations or splits with respect to such shares, plus all accrued but unpaid dividends on each such share, if any (the “ Liquidation Preference ”).

The Corporation shall pay any and all transfer agent fees, legal fees, costs and any other fees or costs that may be incurred or charged in connection with the issuance of shares of Common Stock to the Holder arising out of or relating to the conversion of the Series A Preferred Stock. For purposes of this Certificate of Designations:

(b) Automatic Conversion . Each share of Series A Preferred Stock shall automatically be converted into shares of Common Stock at the Conversion Rate at the time in effect immediately upon the date specified by written consent or agreement of the holders of a majority of the then outstanding Series A Preferred Stock.

On or before the third (3rd) Business Day following the date of receipt of a Conversion Notice, the Corporation shall (A) if legends are not required to be placed on certificates of Common Stock pursuant to the then existing provisions of Rule 144 of the Securities Act of 1933 (“ Rule 144 ”) and provided that the Corporation’s transfer agent is participating in the Depository Trust Company's (“DTC”) Fast Automated Securities Transfer Program, credit such aggregate number of shares of Common Stock to which the Holder shall be entitled to the Holder’s or its designee’s balance account with DTC, or (B) if the Corporation’s transfer agent is not participating in the DTC Fast Automated Securities Transfer Program, issue and deliver to the address as specified in the Conversion Notice, a certificate, registered in the name of the Holder or its designee, for the number of shares of Common Stock to which the Holder shall be entitled which certificates shall not bear any restrictive legends unless required pursuant the Rule 144. If a certificate representing the shares of Series A Preferred Stock is physically surrendered for conversion and there remain shares to be converted, then the Corporation shall, upon request of the Holder, as soon as practicable and in no event later than three (3) Business Days after receipt of this conversion and at its own expense, issue and deliver to the holder a new Series A Preferred Stock certificate representing the outstanding shares not converted. The individual, corporation, partnership, limited liability company, limited liability partnership, trust, association, organization or other entity entitled to receive the shares of Common Stock issuable upon a conversion of Series A Preferred Stock shall be treated for all purposes as the record holder or holders of such shares of Common Stock upon the transmission of a Conversion Notice. For the purposes hereof, the term “ Business Day ” means any day except any Saturday, any Sunday, any day which shall be a federal legal holiday in the United States or any day on which banking institutions in the State of California are authorized or required by law or other governmental action to close.

If the Corporation fails to deliver shares in accordance with the timeframe stated in this Section, resulting in a Conversion Failure, the Holder, at any time prior to selling all of those shares, may rescind any portion, in whole or in part, of that particular conversion attributable to the unsold shares and have the rescinded portion returned to shares of Series A Preferred Stock with the rescinded shares of Common Stock returned to the Corporation.
(iii). Adjustment to Conversion Price for Certain Actions . In the event of any Negative Action, as hereinafter defined, the Conversion Price shall thereafter be redefined to mean the lesser of (A) $0.02 and (B) fifty percent (50%) of the lowest trade occurring during the twenty (20) consecutive Trading Days immediately preceding the applicable Conversion Date on which the Holder elects to convert any shares of Series A Preferred Stock, subject to adjustment as provided herein. For purposes of this Certificate of Designations, “ Negative Action ” means:

(II) t he Corporation or any subsidiary of the Corporation shall default in any of its obligations under any note or any mortgage, credit agreement or other facility, indenture agreement, factoring agreement or other instrument under which there may be issued, or by which there may be secured or evidenced any indebtedness for borrowed money or money due under any long term leasing or factoring arrangement of the Corporation or any subsidiary of the Corporation in an amount exceeding $100,000, whether such indebtedness now exists or shall hereafter be created;

(IV) t he Corporation loses its status as “DTC Eligible” for any reason; or
(V) the Corporation shall become late or delinquent in its filing requirements as a fully-reporting issuer registered with the Securities amd Exchange Commission.
(iv). Book-Entry . Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth herein, upon conversion of any shares of Series A Preferred Stock in accordance with the terms hereof, the Holder shall not be required to physically surrender a certificate evidencing such Series A Preferred Stock to the Corporation unless (A) all of the shares underlying a given certificate representing Series A Preferred Stock are being converted or (B) the Holder has provided the Corporation with prior written notice (which notice may be included in a Conversion Notice) requesting reissuance of another certificate representing shares of Series A Preferred Stock upon physical surrender of a certificate representing shares of Series A Preferred Stock. The Holder and the Corporation shall maintain records showing the number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock converted and the dates of such conversions or shall use such other method, reasonably satisfactory to the Holder and the Corporation, so as not to require physical surrender of stock certificates upon conversion.
(d) Limitations on Conversion. The Corporation shall not effect any conversion of the Series A Preferred Stock and the Holder thereof shall not have the right to convert any shares of the Series A Preferred Stock held thereby to the extent that after giving effect to such conversion, such Holder, together with any affiliate thereof and any other person or entity acting as a group together with such Holder or any of such Holder’s affiliates, would beneficially own in excess of 4.99% of the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to such conversion (the “ Beneficial Ownership Limitation ”). For purposes of the foregoing sentence, the number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by a Holder and its affiliates shall include the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Series A Preferred Stock with respect to which such determination is being made, but shall exclude the number of shares of Common Stock which are issuable upon (A) conversion of the remaining, unconverted Series A Preferred Stock then held by the given Holder or any of its affiliates and (B) exercise or conversion of the unexercised or unconverted portion of any other securities of the Company subject to a limitation on conversion or exercise analogous to the limitation contained herein beneficially owned by the given Holder or any of its affiliates. Except as set forth in the preceding sentence, for purposes of this Section 6(d) , beneficial ownership shall be calculated in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “ Exchange Act ”), and the rules promulgated thereunder. For purposes of this section, in determining the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock, a Holder may rely on the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock as stated in the most recent of the following: (A) the Corporation’s most recent periodic or annual report, as the case may be; (B) a more recent public announcement by the Corporation; or (C) a more recent notice by the Corporation or the Corporation’s transfer agent setting forth the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding. Upon the written or oral request of a Holder, the Corporation shall within three Trading Days confirm orally and in writing to such Holder the number of shares of Common Stock then outstanding. Since a Holder will not be obligated to report to the Corporation the number of shares of Common Stock it may hold at the time of a conversion hereunder, unless the conversion at issue would result in the issuance of shares of Common Stock in excess of the Beneficial Ownership Limitation without regard to any other shares which may be beneficially owned by the Holder or an affiliate thereof, the Holder shall have the authority and obligation to determine whether the restriction contained in this Section will limit any particular conversion hereunder and to the extent that the Holder determines that the limitation contained in this Section applies, the determination of the number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock that may be convertible shall be the responsibility and obligation of the Holder. If a Holder has delivered a Conversion Notice that, without regard to any other shares that the Holder or its affiliates may beneficially own, would result in the issuance in excess of the Beneficial Ownership Limitation, the Corporation shall notify the Holder of this fact and shall honor the conversion for the maximum number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock permitted to be converted on such Conversion Date in accordance with Section 6(a) and, any shares of Series A Preferred Stock tendered for conversion in excess of the Beneficial Ownership Limitation shall remain outstanding. By written notice to the Corporation, a Holder may at any time and from time to time increase or decrease the Beneficial Ownership Limitation to any other percentage specified in such notice (or specify that the Beneficial Ownership Limitation shall no longer be applicable), provided, however, that (A) any such increase (or inapplicability) shall not be effective until the sixty-fifth (65 th ) day after such notice is delivered to the Corporation, and (B) any such increase or decrease shall apply only to the given Holder and not to any other holder of Series A Preferred Stock. The provisions of this section shall be construed and implemented in a manner otherwise than in strict conformity with the terms of this section to correct this section (or any portion hereof) which may be defective or inconsistent with the intended Beneficial Ownership Limitation herein contained or to make changes or supplements necessary or desirable to properly give effect to such limitation. The limitations contained in this section shall apply to a successor holder of any shares of Series A Preferred Stock.
(e) Adjustments to Conversion Rate and Reorganization . The Conversion Rate for the number of shares of Common Stock into which the Series A Preferred Stock shall be converted on a conversion shall be subject to adjustment from time to time as hereinafter set forth:
(i) Stock Dividends - Recapitalization, Reclassification, Split-Ups . If, prior to the date of a conversion, the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock is increased by a stock dividend on the Common Stock payable in shares of Common Stock or by a stock split, recapitalization or reclassification of shares of Common Stock or other similar event, then, on the effective date thereof, the Conversion Rate will be adjusted so that the number of shares of Common Stock issuable on the conversion of the Series A Preferred Stock shall be increased in proportion to such increase in outstanding shares of Common Stock.
(ii) Aggregation of Shares . If prior to the date of conversion, the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock is decreased by a consolidation, combination, reverse stock split or reclassification of shares of Common Stock or other similar event, then, upon the effective date thereof, the number of shares of Common Stock issuable on the conversion of the Series A Preferred Stock shall be decreased in proportion to such decrease in outstanding shares of Common Stock.
(iii) Change Resulting from Reorganization or Change in Par Value, etc. In case of any reclassification or reorganization of the outstanding shares of Common Stock which solely affects the par value of the shares of Common Stock, or in the case of any merger or consolidation of the Corporation with or into another corporation (other than a consolidation or merger in which the Corporation is the continuing corporation and which does not result in any reclassification or reorganization of the outstanding shares of Common Stock), or in the case of any sale or conveyance to another corporation or entity of the property of the Corporation as an entirety or substantially as an entirety in connection with which the Corporation is dissolved, the holders of the Series A Preferred Stock shall have the right thereafter (unless otherwise converted) to receive upon the conversion of the Series A Preferred Stock the kind and amount of shares of stock or other securities or property (including cash) receivable upon such reclassification, reorganization, merger or consolidation, or upon a dissolution following any such sale or other transfer, by a holder of the number of shares of Common Stock into which the Series A Preferred Stock is convertible immediately prior to such event; and if any reclassification also results in a change in shares of Common Stock, then such adjustment also shall be made.
(iv) Successive Changes. The provisions of this Section shall similarly apply to successive reclassifications, reorganizations, mergers or consolidations, sales or other transfers.
(7) Voting Rights . The holders of record of shares of Series A Preferred Stock shall be entitled to the following voting rights:
(a) Subject to the provisions of Section 7(d) , those voting rights required by applicable law and as provided in Section (12) hereof;
(b) Subject to the provisions of Section 7(d), the right to vote together with the holders of the Common Stock, as a single class, upon all matters submitted to holders of Common Stock for a vote. Subject to the provisions of Section 7(d) , each share of Series A Preferred Stock will carry a number of votes equal to the number of shares of Common Stock issuable in a conversion based on the then applicable Conversion Rate; and
(c) Whenever holders of Series A Preferred Stock are required or permitted to take any action by vote, such action may be taken without a meeting on written consent, setting forth the action so taken and signed by the holders of the outstanding capital stock of the Corporation having not less than the minimum number of votes that would be necessary to authorize or take such action at a meeting at which all such shares entitled to vote thereon were present and voted. Subject to the provisions of Section 7(d) , each share of the Series A Preferred Stock shall entitle the holder thereof to one vote on all matters to be voted on by the holders of the Series A Preferred Stock, as set forth in this Section 7(c) .
(d) Limitations on Voting . Notwithstanding any portion of this Certificate of Designations to the contrary, the Corporation shall not effect any voting with respect to any shares of Series A Preferred Stock held by a Holder or its affiliates that, and the Holder thereof (or its affiliates) shall not have the right to vote any shares of the Series A Preferred Stock held thereby that, upon conversion in accordance with Section 6 , would exceed the Beneficial Ownership Limitation. The provisions of this Section may be waived by a Holder (but only as to itself and not as to any other Holder) upon not less than sixty-five (65) days’ prior notice to the Corporation. Other Holders shall be unaffected by any such waiver.
(8) No Impairment . The Corporation will not, by amendment of its Articles of Incorporation or through any reorganization, recapitalization, transfer of assets, consolidation, merger, dissolution, issue or sale of securities or any other voluntary action, avoid or seek to avoid the observance or performance of any of the terms to be observed or performed hereunder by the Corporation, but will at all times in good faith assist in the carrying out of all the provisions of this section and in the taking of all such action as may be necessary or appropriate in order to protect the conversion rights of the holders of Series A Preferred Stock against impairment.
(9) No Fractional Shares and Certificate as to Adjustments . No fractional shares shall be issued upon the conversion of any share or shares of the Series A Preferred Stock, and the number of shares of Common Stock to be issued shall be rounded to the nearest whole share. The number of shares issuable upon conversion shall be determined on the basis of the total number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock the holder is at the time converting into Common Stock and the number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon such aggregate conversion.
(10) Notices of Record Date . In the event of any taking by the Corporation of a record of the holders of any class of securities for the purpose of determining the holders thereof who are entitled to receive any dividend (other than a cash dividend) or other distribution, any right to subscribe for, purchase or otherwise acquire any shares of stock of any class or any other securities or property, or any other right, the Corporation shall mail to each holder of Series A Preferred Stock, at least ten (10) days prior to the date specified therein, a notice specifying the date on which any such record is to be taken for the purpose of such dividend, distribution or right, and the amount and character of such dividend, distribution or right.
(11) Notices . Any notice required by the provisions of this Certificate of Designations to be given to the holders of shares of Series A Preferred Stock shall be deemed given if deposited in the United States mail, postage prepaid, and addressed to each holder of record at his address appearing on the books of the Corporation.
(12) Protective Provisions . So long as any shares of Series A Preferred Stock are outstanding, the Corporation shall not without first obtaining the approval (by vote or written consent, as provided by law) of the holders of at least a majority of the then outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock, voting as a separate class: (i) amend, alter or repeal the preferences, privileges, special rights or other powers of the Series A Preferred Stock, as set forth herein, in a manner adverse to the holders thereof ; (ii) create, issue, or obligate itself to issue any new class or series of stock or any other equity security (including any security convertible into or exercisable for any equity security) ranking senior to the Series A Preferred Stock as to dividend rights, redemption rights, conversion rights or liquidation preferences ; (iii) reclassify any existing class or series of outstanding shares into a class or series of stock or any other equity security (including any security convertible into or exercisable for any equity security) ranking senior to, or on a parity with, the Series A Preferred Stock as to dividend rights, redemption rights, conversion rights or liquidation preferences ; or (iv) amend its Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws in any manner that adversely affects the preferences, privileges, restrictions or other rights of the holders of Series A Preferred Stock .
(13) Return of Status as Authorized Shares . Upon a conversion or any other redemption or extinguishment of the Series A Preferred Stock, the shares converted, redeemed or extinguished will be automatically returned to the status of authorized and unissued shares of Preferred Stock, available for future designation and issuance pursuant to the terms of the Articles of Incorporation.
FURTHER RESOLVED, that the statements contained in the foregoing resolutions creating and designating the said Series A Convertible Preferred Stock and fixing the number, powers, preferences and relative, optional, participating, and other special rights and the qualifications, limitations, restrictions, and other distinguishing characteristics thereof shall, upon the effective date of said series, be deemed to be included in and be a part of the Articles of Incorporation of the Corporation pursuant to the provisions of Sections 104 and 151 of the General Corporation Law of the State of Nevada.

|3.||Representations and Warranties of the Investor|
The Investor hereby represents and warrants to the Company with respect to the purchase of the Preferred Shares to be purchased by it as follows:
3.1 Experience . The Investor acknowledges that it is able to bear the economic risk of its investment, and has such knowledge and experience in financial or business matters that it is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of the investment in the Preferred Shares and the Conversion Shares and is able to bear the economic risk of its investment in the Preferred Shares and Conversion Shares for an indefinite period of time.

3.3 Investment . The Investor is acquiring the Preferred Shares and the Conversion Shares for investment for its own account, not as a nominee or agent, and not with the view to, or for resale in connection with, any distribution thereof. It understands that the Preferred Shares have not been, and the Conversion Shares will not be, (except for specific registration rights granted to the Investors), registered under the Securities Act by reason of a specific exemption from the registration provisions of the Securities Act, the availability of which depends upon, among other things, the bona fide nature of the investment intent and the accuracy of such Investor’s representations as expressed herein.
3.4 Accredited Investors . The Investor is an “accredited investor” as defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act.

Any other legend required by the securities laws of the State of Nevada.
3.6 Authorization . The execution, delivery and performance by the Investor of the Agreement has been duly authorized by all requisite action of the Investor.

The Investor acknowledges that no other purchaser of shares of Series A Preferred Stock in the proposed offering has acted as agent for the Investor in connection with making its investment hereunder and that no other purchaser of shares of Series A Preferred Stock will be acting as agent of the Investor in connection with monitoring its investment in the Preferred Shares or enforcing its rights under this Agreement.

If at any time the number of authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock shall not be sufficient to effect the conversion of the Preferred Shares or otherwise to comply with the terms of this Agreement, the Company will forthwith take such corporate action as may be necessary to increase its authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock to such number of shares as shall be sufficient for such purposes.

6.4 Piggyback Registrations .
6.4.1 Right to Include Conversion Shares . Each time that the Company proposes for any reason to register any of its Common Stock under the Securities Act, either for its own account or for the account of a stockholder or stockholders, other than Registration Statements on Forms S-4 or S-8 (or similar or successor forms) (a “ Proposed Registration ”), the Company shall promptly give written notice of such Proposed Registration to all of the A Investors (which notice shall be given in no event less than ten (10) days prior to the expected filing date of the Proposed Registration) and shall offer such A Investors the right to request inclusion of any of such A Investor’s Conversion Shares in the Proposed Registration. The rights to piggyback registration may be exercised on an unlimited number of occasions.
6.4.2 Piggyback Procedure . Each A Investor shall have twenty (20) days from the date of receipt of the Company’s notice referred to in Section 6.4.1 above to deliver to the Company a written request specifying the number of Conversion Shares such A Investor intends to sell and such A Investor’s intended method of disposition. Any A Investor shall have the right to withdraw such A Investor’s request for inclusion of such A Investor’s Conversion Shares in any Proposed Registration pursuant to this Section 6.4 by giving written notice to the Company of such withdrawal; provided, however , that the Company may ignore a notice of withdrawal made within less than one full business day prior to the date the Proposed Registration is scheduled to become effective. Subject to Section 6.4.4 below, the Company shall use its reasonable best efforts to include in such Proposed Registration all such Conversion Shares so requested to be included therein; provided , however , that the Company may at any time withdraw or cease proceeding with any such Proposed Registration if it shall at the same time withdraw or cease proceeding with the registration of all other shares of Common Stock originally proposed to be registered.
6.4.3 Selection of Underwriters . The managing underwriter for any Proposed Registration that involves an underwritten public offering shall be one or more reputable nationally recognized investment banks selected by the Company.
6.4.4 Priority for Piggyback Registration .
18.104.22.168 Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 6.4, if the managing underwriter of an underwritten public offering determines and advises the Company and the A Investors in writing that the inclusion of all Conversion Shares proposed to be included by the A Investors in the underwritten public offering would materially and adversely interfere with the successful marketing of the Company’s securities in the Proposed Registration, then the A Investors shall not be permitted to include any Conversion Shares in excess of the amount, if any, of Conversion Shares which the managing underwriter of such underwritten public offering shall reasonably and in good faith agree in writing to include in such public offering in addition to the amount of securities to be registered for the Company. The Company will be obligated to include in such Proposed Registration, as to each A Investor, only a portion of the Conversion Shares such A Investor has requested be registered equal to the ratio which such A Investor’s requested Conversion Shares bears to the total number of Conversion Shares requested to be included in such Proposed Registration by all A Investors who have requested that their Conversion Shares be included in such Registration Statement, and no party, other than the Company and the A Investors, shall be permitted to include their Conversion Shares in any such Proposed Registration unless such shares are also limited on a pro rata basis equal to the ratio which such party’s requested Conversion Shares bear to the total number of Conversion Shares requested to be included in such Proposed Registration by all A Investors who have requested that their Conversion Shares be included in such Proposed Registration. The securities to be included in a Proposed Registration initiated by the Company shall be allocated: first, to the Company; second, pari passu to the A Investors, and third, to any others requesting registration of securities of the Company.
22.214.171.124 Notwithstanding any portion of the foregoing to the contrary, in no event shall the shares to be sold by the A Investors be reduced below twenty percent (20%) of the total amount of securities included in the Proposed Registration. No stockholder of the Company shall be granted piggyback registration rights which would reduce the number of shares to be included by the A Investors in such registration without the consent of the A Investors of at least a majority of the Conversion Shares.
126.96.36.199 If as a result of the provisions of this Section 6.4, any A Investor shall not be entitled to include more than 50% of its Conversion Shares in a registration that such A Investor has requested to be so included, such A Investor may withdraw such A Investor’s request to include Conversion Shares in such Proposed Registration.
6.4.5 Underwritten Offering . In the event that the Proposed Registration by the Company is, in whole or in part, an underwritten public offering of securities of the Company, any request under this Section 6.4 shall specify that the Conversion Shares be included in the underwriting on the same terms and conditions as the shares, if any, otherwise being sold through the underwriters under such registration.
6.4.6 Statutory Cutback . Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Company determines and advises the A Investors in writing that the inclusion of all securities proposed to be included by the A Investors in any Proposed Registration would materially and adversely interfere with the potential effectiveness of such Proposed Registration, whether as a result of the interpretation of Rule 415 promulgated under the Securities Act, or otherwise, then the A Investors shall not be permitted to include any securities in excess of their pro rata amount (vis-à-vis the other A Investors and all other investors as a whole), if any, of securities which the Company shall reasonably and in good faith agree in writing to include in such offering.
7.1 Closing . The Investor hereto expressly acknowledges and agrees that immediately following an applicable Closing, the Investor shall have deemed the Investor’s conditions to closing identified in Section 4 hereof to have been satisfied or waived.
7.2 Governing Law . This Agreement shall be governed in all respects by the internal laws of the State of Nevada, without giving effect to principles of conflicts of law, as applied to agreements entered into among Nevada State residents to be performed entirely within Nevada. Each party hereto irrevocably and unconditionally (i) agrees that any action, suit or claim brought hereunder must be brought in the courts of the United States in the State of Nevada or the state courts of the State of Nevada which shall serve as the exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any and all disputes arising out of and/or relating to this Agreement; (ii) consents to the jurisdiction of any such court in any such suit, action or proceeding; and (iii) waives any objection which such party may have to the laying of venue of any such suit, action or proceeding in any such court.
7.3 Successors and Assigns . Except as otherwise provided herein, the provisions of this Agreement shall inure to the benefit of, and be binding upon, the successors, assigns, heirs, executors and administrators of the parties hereto (including to any transferee of any Preferred Shares or Conversion Shares). Nothing in this Agreement, express or implied, is intended to confer upon any party other than the parties hereto or their respective successors and assigns any rights, remedies, obligations or liabilities under or by reason of this Agreement, except as expressly provided in this Agreement.
7.4 Amendment . Any provision of this Agreement may be amended, waived, modified, discharged or terminated only with the written consent of the Company and the holders of a majority of the Preferred Shares, voting together as a single class. Any amendment or waiver affected in accordance with this Section 7.4 shall be binding upon the Company and each holder of any securities subject to this Agreement (including securities into which such securities are convertible) and future holders of all such securities. Each A Investor may waive his, her or its rights or the Company’s obligations with respect to its Preferred Shares hereunder without obtaining the consent of any other natural person or Person.
7.5 Notices . All notices required or permitted hereunder shall be in writing and shall be deemed effectively given (a) upon personal delivery to the party to be notified, (b) five (5) days after deposit in the United States mail, by registered or certified mail, postage prepaid and properly addressed to the party to be notified as set forth in the Company records, or (c) when received if transmitted by telecopy (to be followed by U.S. mail), electronic or digital transmission method. In each case notice shall be sent to the addresses set forth on the Company’s records or at such other address as a party may designate by ten (10) days’ advance written notice to the other parties hereto.
7.6 Counterparts . This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be enforceable against the parties actually executing such counterparts, and all of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument.
7.7 Severability . In the event that any provision of this Agreement becomes or is declared by a court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, unenforceable or void, this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect without said provision.
7.8 Titles and Subtitles . The titles and subtitles used in this Agreement are used for convenience only and are not to be considered in construing or interpreting this Agreement.

7.10 Intentionally Omitted
7.11 Attorneys' Fees .

7.13 Entire Agreement . This Agreement, together with the Exhibits hereto, the certificates, documents, instruments and writings that are delivered pursuant hereto and each of the other Agreements, constitutes the entire agreement and understanding of the parties hereto in respect of its subject matters and supersedes all prior understandings, agreements, or representations by or among the parties hereto, written or oral, to the extent they relate in any way to the subject matter hereof or the transactions contemplated hereby.
