Eastern Resources Corporation

166 East 34th Street, Suite 18K

New York, NY 10016

  

This Subscription Agreement (this “Agreement”) has been executed by the subscriber set forth in the signature page attached hereto (the “Subscriber”) in connection with the private placement offering (the “Offering”) of $_________ principal amount of 10% eighteen (18) month convertible promissory notes (the “Notes”) of Eastern Resources, Inc., a Delaware Corporation (the “Company”). This subscription is being submitted to you in accordance with and subject to the terms and conditions described in this Agreement.

 

The Notes being subscribed for pursuant to this Agreement, or the securities into which the Notes may be converted, have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The Offering is being made on a “best efforts” basis to “accredited investors,” as defined in Regulation D under the Securities Act, and subscribers who are not ”U.S. persons,” as defined in Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion and for any reason, to reject any Subscriber’s subscription in whole or in part, or to allot less than the number of Notes subscribed for.

 

The closing of the Offering (the “Closing;” and the date on which such Closing occurs hereinafter referred to as the “Closing Date”) shall be at the offices of Gottbetter & Partners, LLP, as escrow agent (the “Escrow Agent”), at 488 Madison Avenue, New York, New York 10022 (or such other place as is mutually agreed to by the Company). The Company may conduct multiple closings for the sale of the Notes until the termination of the Offering. The Offering shall continue until the maximum amount of the Offering is reached or it is otherwise terminated by the Company.

 

1. Subscription. The undersigned Subscriber hereby subscribes to purchase the principal amount of Notes set forth on the signature page attached hereto (the “Purchase Price”), subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and on the basis of the representations, warranties, covenants and agreements contained herein.

 

2. Subscription Procedure. To complete a subscription for the Notes, the Subscriber must fully comply with the subscription procedure provided in this Section on or before the Closing Date.

Simultaneously with the delivery of the Transaction Documents to the Escrow Agent as provided herein, and in any event on or prior to the Closing Date, the Subscriber shall deliver to the Escrow Agent the full Purchase Price, plus $160 (the “Escrow Fee”) for services rendered by the Escrow Agent in such capacity hereunder, by check or by wire transfer of immediately available funds.

 

c. Company Discretion. The Subscriber understands and agrees that the Company in its sole discretion reserves the right to accept or reject this or any other subscription for Notes, in whole or in part, notwithstanding prior receipt by the Subscriber of notice of acceptance of this subscription. The Company shall have no obligation hereunder until the Company shall execute and deliver to the Subscriber an executed copy of this Agreement. If this subscription is rejected in whole, or the offering of Notes is terminated, all funds received from the Subscriber will be returned without interest or offset, and this Agreement shall thereafter be of no further force or effect. If this subscription is rejected in part, the funds for the rejected portion of this subscription will be returned without interest or offset, and this Agreement will continue in full force and effect to the extent this subscription was accepted.

 

d. No Trading. The Subscriber represents and warrants to the Company that neither the Subscriber nor any of its affiliates has directly or indirectly traded any securities of the Company, including without limitation, making any short sales or engaging in any hedging transaction with respect to such securities (collectively, “Prohibited Transactions”), since becoming aware of the Offering. Furthermore, Subscriber shall not engage in any Prohibited Transactions through the final Closing Date.

 

3. Representations and Warranties of the Company. The Company hereby represents and warrants to the Subscriber the following:

 

a. Organization and Qualification. The Company is a corporation duly organized and validly existing under the laws of the State of Delaware. The Company has all requisite power and authority to carry on its business as currently conducted, other than such failures that would not reasonably be expected to have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, properties or financial condition (a “Material Adverse Effect”). The Company is duly qualified to transact business in each jurisdiction in which the failure to be so qualified would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

 

b. Authorization. As of the Closing, all action on the part of the Company, its board of directors, officers and existing stockholders necessary for the authorization, execution and delivery of this Agreement and the performance of all obligations of the Company hereunder and thereunder shall have been taken, and this Agreement, assuming due execution by the parties hereto and thereto, will constitute valid and legally binding obligations of the Company, enforceable in accordance with their respective terms, subject to: (i) judicial principles limiting the availability of specific performance, injunctive relief, and other equitable remedies and (ii) bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other similar laws now or hereafter in effect generally relating to or affecting creditors’ rights.

 

c. Governmental Consents. No consent, approval, order or authorization of, or registration, qualification, designation, declaration or filing with, any federal, state or local governmental authority on the part of the Company is required in connection with the offer, sale or issuance of the Notes, except for the following: (i) the filing of such notices as may be required under the Securities Act and (ii) the compliance with any applicable state securities laws, which compliance will have occurred within the appropriate time periods therefor.

 

2
 

 

d. Litigation. There are no actions, suits, proceedings or investigations pending or, to the best of the Company’s knowledge, threatened before any court, administrative agency or other governmental body against the Company which question the validity of this Agreement, or the right of the Company to enter into either of them, or to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, or which would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. The Company is not a party or subject to, and none of its assets is bound by, the provisions of any order, writ, injunction, judgment or decree of any court or government agency or instrumentality which would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

 

e. Compliance with Other Instruments. The Company is not in violation or default of any provision of its Articles of Incorporation, each as in effect immediately prior to the Closing, except for such failures as would not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. The Company is not in violation or default of any provision of any material instrument, mortgage, deed of trust, loan, contract, commitment, judgment, decree, order or obligation to which it is a party or by which it or any of its properties or assets are bound which would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. To the best of its knowledge, the Company is not in violation or default of any provision of any federal, state or local statute, rule or governmental regulation which would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. The execution, delivery and performance of and compliance with this Agreement and the issuance and sale of the Notes, will not result in any such violation, be in conflict with or constitute, with or without the passage of time or giving of notice, a default under any such provision, require any consent or waiver under any such provision (other than any consents or waivers that have been obtained), or result in the creation of any mortgage, pledge, lien, encumbrance or charge upon any of the properties or assets of the Company pursuant to any such provision.

 

f. Certain Registration Matters. Assuming the accuracy of the Subscriber’s representations and warranties set forth in this Agreement and the Transaction Documents, and the representations and warranties made by all other purchasers of Notes in the Offering, no registration under the Securities Act is required for the offer and sale of the Notes by the Company to the Subscriber hereunder.

 

g. No General Solicitation. Neither the Company nor any person acting on behalf of the Company has offered or sold any of the Notes by any form of general solicitation or general advertising (within the meaning of Regulation D).

 

4. Representations and Warranties of the Subscriber. The Subscriber represents and warrants to the Company the following:

 

a. Subscriber Knowledge and Experience. The Subscriber, its advisers, if any, and designated representatives, if any, have the knowledge and experience in financial and business matters necessary to evaluate the merits and risks of its prospective investment in the Company, and have carefully reviewed and understand the risks of, and other considerations relating to, the purchase of Notes and the tax consequences of the investment, and have the ability to bear the economic risks of the investment.

 

3
 

 

b. Investment Purpose. The Subscriber is acquiring the Notes for investment for its own account and not with the view to, or for resale in connection with, any distribution thereof. The Subscriber understands and acknowledges that the Notes and the securities that may be issued upon conversion of the Notes (collectively, the “Securities”) have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws, by reason of a specific exemption from the registration provisions of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws, which depends upon, among other things, the bona fide nature of the investment intent as expressed herein. The Subscriber further represents that it does not have any contract, undertaking, agreement or arrangement with any person to sell, transfer or grant participation to any third person with respect to any of the Securities. The Subscriber understands and acknowledges that the offering of the Notes pursuant to this Agreement will not be registered under the Securities Act nor under the state securities laws on the ground that the sale provided for in this Agreement and the issuance of securities hereunder is exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws.

 

c. No Public Market. The Subscriber understands that no public market now exists, and there never will be a public market for, the Notes, that an active public market for the Company’s common stock does not now exist and that there may never be an active public market for the common stock of the Company.

 

d. Information. The Subscriber, its advisers, if any, and designated representatives, if any, have received and reviewed information about the Company and have had an opportunity to discuss the Company’s business, management and financial affairs with its management. The Subscriber understands that such discussions, as well as any written information provided by the Company, were intended to describe the aspects of the Company’s business and prospects which the Company believes to be material, but were not necessarily a thorough or exhaustive description, and except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, the Company makes no representation or warranty with respect to the completeness of such information and makes no representation or warranty of any kind with respect to any information provided by any entity other than the Company. Some of such information includes projections as to the future performance of the Company, which projections may not be realized, are based on assumptions which may not be correct and are subject to numerous factors beyond the Company’s control.

 

e. Investment Authorization. As of the Closing, all action on the part of Subscriber, and its officers, directors and partners, if applicable, necessary for the authorization, execution and delivery of this Agreement and the performance of all obligations of the Subscriber hereunder and thereunder shall have been taken, and this Agreement, assuming due execution by the parties hereto and thereto, constitute valid and legally binding obligations of the Subscriber, enforceable in accordance with their respective terms, subject to: (i) judicial principles limiting the availability of specific performance, injunctive relief, and other equitable remedies and (ii) bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other similar laws now or hereafter in effect generally relating to or affecting creditors’ rights.

f. Accredited Investor Status. The Subscriber either (i) is an “accredited investor” as defined in Rule 501 of Regulation D as promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Securities Act or (ii) is not a “U.S. Person” as defined in Regulation S as promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Securities Act, and, in each case, shall submit to the Company such further assurances of such status as may be reasonably requested by the Company.

 

g. Non-U.S. Person Status. The Subscriber, if a non-U.S. Person, agrees that it is acquiring the Notes in an offshore transaction pursuant to Regulation S and hereby represents to the Company as follows:

 

(i) The Subscriber is outside the United States when receiving and executing this Subscription Agreement;

 

(ii) The Subscriber has not acquired the Notes as a result of, and will not itself engage in, any “directed selling efforts” (as defined in Regulation S) in the United States in respect of the Notes which would include any activities undertaken for the purpose of, or that could reasonably be expected to have the effect of, conditioning the market in the United States for the resale of the Notes; provided, however, that the Subscriber may sell or otherwise dispose of the Notes pursuant to registration of the Notes under the Securities Act and any applicable state and provincial securities laws or under an exemption from such registration requirements and as otherwise provided herein;

 

(iii) The Subscriber understands and agrees that offers and sales of any of the Notes prior to the expiration of a period of one year after the date of transfer of the Notes under this Subscription Agreement (the “Distribution Compliance Period”), shall only be made in compliance with the safe harbor provisions set forth in Regulation S, pursuant to the registration provisions of the Securities Act or an exemption therefrom, and that all offers and sales after the Distribution Compliance Period shall be made only in compliance with the registration provisions of the Securities Act or an exemption therefrom, and in each case only in accordance with all applicable securities laws;

 

(iv) The Subscriber understands and agrees not to engage in any hedging transactions involving the Notes prior to the end of the Distribution Compliance Period unless such transactions are in compliance with the Securities Act; and

 

(v) The Subscriber hereby represents that it has satisfied itself as to the full observance of the laws of its jurisdiction in connection with any invitation to subscribe for the Notes or any use of this Subscription Agreement, including: (a) the legal requirements within its jurisdiction for the purchase of the Notes; (b) any foreign exchange restrictions applicable to such purchase; (c) any governmental or other consents that may need to be obtained; and (d) the income tax and other tax consequences, if any, that may be relevant to the purchase, holding, redemption, sale or transfer of the Notes. Such Subscriber’s subscription and payment for, and its continued beneficial ownership of the Notes, will not violate any applicable securities or other laws of the Subscriber’s jurisdiction.

h. Anti-Money Laundering. Subscriber represents that neither it nor, to its knowledge, any person or entity controlling, controlled by or under common control with it, nor any person having a beneficial interest in it, nor any person on whose behalf the Subscriber is acting: (i) is a person listed in the Annex to Executive Order No. 13224 (2001) issued by the President of the United States (Executive Order Blocking Property and Prohibiting Transactions with Persons Who Commit, Threaten to Commit, or Support Terrorism); (ii) is named on the List of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons maintained by the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control; (iii) is a non-U.S. shell bank or is providing banking services indirectly to a non-U.S. shell bank; (iv) is a senior non-U.S. political figure or an immediate family member or close associate of such figure; or (v) is otherwise prohibited from investing in the Company pursuant to applicable U.S. anti-money laundering, anti-terrorist and asset control laws, regulations, rules or orders (categories (i) through (v), each a “Prohibited Subscriber”). The Subscriber agrees to provide the Company, promptly upon request, all information that the Company reasonably deems necessary or appropriate to comply with applicable U.S. anti-money laundering, anti-terrorist and asset control laws, regulations, rules and orders. The Subscriber consents to the disclosure to U.S. regulators and law enforcement authorities by the Company and its affiliates and agents of such information about the Subscriber as the Company reasonably deems necessary or appropriate to comply with applicable U.S. antimony laundering, anti-terrorist and asset control laws, regulations, rules and orders. If the Subscriber is a financial institution that is subject to the USA Patriot Act, the Subscriber represents that it has met all of its obligations under the USA Patriot Act. The Subscriber acknowledges that if, following its investment in the Company, the Company reasonably believes that the Subscriber is a Prohibited Subscriber or is otherwise engaged in suspicious activity or refuses to promptly provide information that the Company requests, the Company has the right or may be obligated to prohibit additional investments, segregate the assets constituting the investment in accordance with applicable regulations or immediately require the Subscriber to transfer the Securities. The Subscriber further acknowledges that the Subscriber will have no claim against the Company or any of its affiliates or agents for any form of damages as a result of any of the foregoing actions.

 

i. High Risk Investment. The Subscriber or its duly authorized representative realizes that because of the inherently speculative nature of businesses of the kind conducted and contemplated by the Company, the Company’s financial results may be expected to fluctuate from month to month and from period to period and will, generally, involve a high degree of financial and market risk that could result in substantial or, at times, even total losses for investors in securities of the Company.

 

j. Subscriber Liquidity. The Subscriber has adequate means of providing for its current and anticipated financial needs and contingencies, is able to bear the economic risk for an indefinite period of time and has no need for liquidity of the investment in the Notes and could afford complete loss of such investment.

 

k. No General Solicitation. The Subscriber is not subscribing for Notes as a result of or subsequent to any advertisement, article, notice or other communication, published in any newspaper, magazine or similar media or broadcast over television, radio, or the internet, or presented at any seminar or meeting, or any solicitation of a subscription by a person not previously known to the Subscriber in connection with investments in securities generally.

m. Gottbetter & Partners, LLP – Relationship to Company. The Subscriber acknowledges that Adam S. Gottbetter is the owner of Gottbetter & Partners, LLP and Gottbetter Capital Group, Inc. Gottbetter & Partners, LLP and Gottbetter Capital Group, Inc. own shares of the Company. Gottbetter & Partners, LLP is counsel to the Company and receives legal fees pursuant to a retainer agreement with the Company.

a. Reliance on Exemptions. The Notes have not been registered for sale under the Securities Act, in reliance on the private offering exemption in Section 4(2) thereof and under Regulation D or Regulation S thereunder; the Company does not intend to register the Notes under the Securities Act at any time in the future.

 

b. Legends. The Subscriber understands that the certificates representing the Securities, until such time as they have been registered under the Securities Act, shall bear a restrictive legend in substantially the following form (and a stop-transfer order may be placed against transfer of such certificates or other instruments):

 

For U.S. Persons:

 

THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “ACT”), OR ANY STATE SECURITIES LAWS, AND NEITHER SUCH SECURITIES NOR ANY INTEREST THEREIN MAY BE OFFERED, SOLD, PLEDGED, ASSIGNED OR OTHERWISE TRANSFERRED UNLESS (1) A REGISTRATION STATEMENT WITH RESPECT THERETO IS EFFECTIVE UNDER THE ACT AND ANY APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS, OR (2) AN EXEMPTION FROM SUCH REGISTRATION EXISTS AND THE COMPANY RECEIVES AN OPINION OF COUNSEL TO THE HOLDER OF SUCH SECURITIES, WHICH COUNSEL AND OPINION ARE SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY, THAT SUCH SECURITIES MAY BE OFFERED, SOLD, PLEDGED, ASSIGNED OR TRANSFERRED IN THE MANNER CONTEMPLATED WITHOUT AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT UNDER THE ACT OR APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS.

 

For Non-U.S. Persons:

 

THESE SECURITIES WERE ISSUED IN AN OFFSHORE TRANSACTION TO PERSONS WHO ARE NOT U.S. PERSONS (AS DEFINED IN REGULATION S) PURSUANT TO REGULATION S UNDER THE UNITED STATES SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “1933 ACT”). ACCORDINGLY, NONE OF THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE 1933 ACT, OR ANY U.S. STATE SECURITIES LAWS, AND, UNLESS SO REGISTERED, NONE MAY BE OFFERED OR SOLD IN THE UNITED STATES OR, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, TO U.S. PERSONS EXCEPT PURSUANT TO AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT OR PURSUANT TO AN EXEMPTION FROM, OR IN A TRANSACTION NOT SUBJECT TO, THE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS OF THE 1933 ACT, AND IN EACH CASE ONLY IN ACCORDANCE WITH APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS.

7
 

 

The legend(s) set forth above shall be removed and the Company shall issue a certificate without such legend to the holder of the Securities upon which it is stamped, if (a) such Securities are sold pursuant to a registration statement under the Securities Act, or (b) such holder delivers to the Company an opinion of counsel, reasonably acceptable to the Company, that a disposition of the Securities is being made pursuant to an exemption from such registration and that the Securities, after such transfer, shall no longer be “restricted securities” within the meaning of Rule 144.

 

c. No Governmental Review. No governmental agency has passed upon the Securities or made any finding or determination as to the wisdom of any investments therein.

 

d. Restrictions on Transfer. There are substantial restrictions on the transferability of the Securities, and if the Company decides to issue certificates representing the Securities, restrictive legends will be placed on any such certificates.

 

6. Indemnification.
