The following is a summary of the material terms of the Series B Stock Purchase Agreement, which is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Series B Stock Purchase Agreement attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 .

Purchase Price .  The purchase price of the Series B Preferred Stock is $1,000 per share, for a total purchase price of $29.055 million (the “ Aggregate Purchase Price ”), exclusive of the additional shares of Series B Preferred Stock required to be issued to the Purchasers as an origination fee for the Offering (described below).

Number of Shares of Series B Preferred Stock .  The Purchasers have agreed to purchase an aggregate of 29,055 Series B Shares for the Aggregate Purchase Price.

Origination Fee.  The Company will pay an origination fee to the Purchasers in additional shares of Series B Preferred Stock equal to approximately two percent (2%) of the Aggregate Purchase Price to be paid by the Purchasers for the shares of Series B Preferred Stock purchased by the Purchasers under the Series B Stock Purchase Agreement.  The Purchasers   w ill receive an aggregate of 581 shares of Series B Preferred Stock as an origination fee for the purchase of the Series B Shares.

Representations, Warranties and Covenants .  The Series B Stock Purchase Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants from the Company, on one hand, and the Purchasers, on the other.

Stockholder Approval .  The issuance of the Series B Shares pursuant to the Series B Stock Purchase Agreement is subject to approval by the Company’s stockholders.  A special meeting of the Company’s stockholders is expected to be held on or about September 25, 2018 (the “ Special Meeting ”).  If the Company’s stockholders do not approve the issuance of the Series B Shares pursuant to the Series B Stock Purchase Agreement on or  p rior to October 31, 2018, the Purchasers or the Company may terminate the Series B Stock Purchase Agreement.

Other Agreements .  Assuming the Company’s stockholders approve the Offering, additional agreements are required to be executed and delivered on the Closing Date, including the Certificate of Designations of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock, the Warrant Agreements, the Registration Rights Agreement and the Purchaser Rights Agreement.  Forms of these agreements are summarized below and are attached as exhibits hereto.

Form of Certificate of Designations of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock

The following is a summary of the material terms of the Certificate of Designations of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock (the “ Series B Certificate of Designations ”) and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Series B Certificate of Designations, which is at tached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 .

 

Optional Conversion .  The Company has the option to convert all, but not less than all, of the Series B Preferred Stock into shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “ Common Stock ”), at a conversion price of $7.50 per

2


 

share of Common Stock (the “ Conversion Price ”) on any date on which the volume weighted average trading price of shares of Common Stock for each trading day during any sixty (60) of the prior ninety (90) trading days is equal to or greater than 175% of the Conversion Price, in each case subject to certain terms and conditions.  In the event that the Company elects to convert the Series B Preferred Stock, the Company must also convert each series of then-issued and outstanding Parity Stock (as defined in the Series B Certificate of Designations) at the same time (if permitted in accordance with the terms of any other series of Parity Stock (as defined in the Series B Certificate of Designations) issued after the Closing Date). 

Mandatory Conversion .  The Company must convert all of the Series B Preferred Stock into shares of Common Stock at the Conversion Price on the earlier of (i) ten (10) Business Days (as defined in the Series B Certificate of Designations) following a FID Event (as defined in the Series B Certificate of Designations) and (ii) the date that is the tenth (10 th ) anniversary of the Closing Date. 

Dividends .  The Company will pay dividends on the Series B Preferred Stock and such dividends will be cumulative and accrue at a rate of twelve percent (12%) per annum on the then existing Series B Liquidation Preference (as defined in the Series B Certificate of Designations) and will be payable in cash or in-kind quarterly, at the Company’s option.  The Series B Preferred Stock will also participate, on an as-converted basis, in any dividends paid to the holders of shares of Common Stock.  The Company currently anticipates that it will elect to pay dividends on the Series B Preferred Stock in-kind, as opposed to paying dividends in cash, prior to the conversion of such shares to Common Stock.

Form of Warrant Agreement

The following is a summary of the material terms of the Form of Warrant Agreement and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Form of Warrant Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 4.1 .

Warrant Exercise .  The Warrants may only be exercised by holders of Warrants at the expiration of such three-year term, except that the Company can force exercise of the Warrants prior to the expiration of the term if (i) the volume weighted average trading price of shares of Common Stock for each trading day during any sixty (60) of the prior ninety (90) trading days is equal to or greater than 175% of the Conversion Price and (ii) the Company simultaneously elects to force a mandatory exercise of all other warrants then-outstanding and unexercised and held by any holder of Parity Stock (as defined in the Series B Certificate of Designations).

Pursuant to the Purchaser Rights Agreement, the Company will grant the Purchasers the following additional rights, subject to certain limitations:

Project Equity Rights .  The Purchasers will have a right of first refusal to purchase any project-level equity or equity-linked securities (including, without limitation, preferred equity, combinations of equity or any other instruments or forms of equity capital) issued to finance the development, construction, commissioning and/or operation of the Company’s Rio Grande LNG facility to be located on the U.S. Gulf Coast (the “ Project ”) The project-level equity rights shall be applied (i) as to a final investment decision (“ FID ”) on the first two liquefaction trains to be constructed as part of the Project, up to a maximum of $200 million and (ii) as to a FID on the third liquefaction train to be constructed as part of the Project, up to a maximum of $90 million, for a combined total amount not to exceed $290 million. 

Series C Purchase Rights .  Prior to an FID Event (as defined in the Purchaser Rights Agreement), the Purchasers will have the right to purchase their pro rata share of any future issuance of shares of Series C Preferred Stock of the Company in accordance with the terms of the Purchaser Rights Agreement.  For additional information concerning the Series C Purchase Rights, please read “ Item 8.01 Other Events – Series C Preferred Stock Purchase Right ” in this current report.

Stockholder Approval of the Offering

According to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5635(d), stockholder approval is required for a transaction other than a public offering involving the sale, issuance or potential issuance by an issuer of common stock (or securities convertible into or exercisable for common stock) at a price that is less than the greater of book or market value of the stock if the number of shares of common stock to be issued is or may be equal to twenty percent (20%) or more of the common stock, or twenty percent (20%) or more of the voting power, outstanding before the issuance.  Pursuant to the terms of the Offering, the Company may issue up to $50 million in aggregate principal amount of Series B Preferred Stock (which includes associated Warrants).  In addition, the terms of the Offering allow for dividends to be paid-in-kind so long as the Series B Preferred Stock remains outstanding.  Therefore, it is possible that the Series B Preferred Stock could be deemed to have been issued at a price where the equivalent value of the Series B Preferred Stock is less than the greater of book or market value of the Common Stock as of the date of the issuance of the Series B Preferred Stock. Accordingly, in accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5635(d), the Company will file a preliminary proxy statement followed by a definitive proxy statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission relating to the stockholder approval to be voted on by the Company’s stockholders, voting together as a single class, at the Special Meeting.
