SECURITIES PLEDGE AGREEMENT
This Securities Pledge Agreement dated as of February 29, 2012 (as amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, this Agreement) is made by Healthcare of Today, Inc., a California corporation (the Parent), in favor of Allezoe Medical Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (Allezoe).
Parent and Allezoe have entered into a Stock Transfer Agreement dated on or about the date of this Agreement (the Agreement). Capitalized terms not otherwise defined in this Agreement have the meanings given in the Agreement. References to Schedules or Exhibits are intended to refer to the schedules and exhibits to this Agreement which are hereby incorporated by reference and made a part of this Agreement.
Parent presently owns all of the issued and outstanding stock of Organ Transport Systems, Inc. (OTS) having acquired all of such stock from Allezoe under the Agreement; and
OTS is indebted to Allezoe in the amount of $469,826.92 for funds advanced by Allezoe to OTS to support its operations (the Debt); and
Allezoe previously assumed certain debt from OTS, primarily representing unpaid salaries accrued by OTS to its officers, with a total principal balance due of $1,474,945.97 and accrued interest of $158,961.84, as more fully described on Schedule 1 (the OTS Debts).
To induce Allezoe to enter into the Agreement, Parent executed a Guaranty dated on or about the date of the Agreement (the Guaranty) pursuant to which Parent guaranteed all of OTSs obligations to Allezoe represented by the Debt and the OTS Debts (the Liabilities).
NOW, THEREFORE, for good and valuable consideration, the receipt, sufficiency and adequacy of which are hereby acknowledged, Parent and Allezoe agree as follows:
Table of Contents
Pledge. Parent hereby pledges and grants to Allezoe a security interest in, the following (the Pledged Collateral):
all of the shares of the capital stock, and all other equity interests of OTS now owned or hereafter acquired by Parent (all such now owned or hereafter acquired shares of capital stock and all other equity interests, collectively, the Pledged Shares), including, without limitation, the certificates, if any, representing such Pledged Shares, and all dividends, cash, securities, instruments, rights and other property from time to time received, receivable or otherwise distributed in respect of or in exchange for any or all of such Pledged Shares;
all additional shares of capital stock, and all other equity interests acquired by Parent in any manner, and the certificates, if any, representing such additional shares of capital stock and all other equity interests (any such additional shares of capital stock and all other equity interests will constitute part of the Pledged Shares under and as defined in this Agreement), and all dividends, cash, instruments, subscription warrants, securities and any other
rights and options and other property from time to time received, receivable or otherwise distributed in respect of or in exchange for any or all of such additional shares of capital stock and all other equity interests; and
all other property hereafter delivered to Allezoe in substitution for, as proceeds of, or in addition to any of the foregoing, all certificates, instruments and documents representing or evidencing such property, and all cash, securities, interest, dividends, rights and other property at any time and from time to time received, receivable or otherwise distributed in respect of or in exchange for any or all thereof.
Within 5 Business Days of any acquisition by Parent of any such additional shares of capital stock and other equity interests in OTS, Parent will execute and deliver to Allezoe a pledge supplement in form acceptable to Allezoe (a Pledge Supplement), provided, that the failure of Parent to deliver any such Pledge Supplement required hereby will not affect the foregoing pledge and grant of security interest in any such additional shares of capital stock, membership interests, partnership interests and other equity interests required to be described therein.
Security for Liabilities. The Pledged Collateral secures the payment and performance of all Obligations (as defined in the Guaranty) and all obligations of Parent and OTS now or hereafter existing under this Agreement or the other Loan Documents (the Obligations and all liabilities and obligations of Parent or OTS now or hereafter existing under this Agreement, the Guaranty or the other Loan Documents are referred to collectively as the Liabilities).
Delivery of Pledged Shares. All certificates, instruments or documents, if any, representing or evidencing the Pledged Shares will be delivered to and held by or on behalf of Allezoe pursuant hereto and will be in suitable form for transfer by delivery, will be accompanied by duly executed instruments of transfer or assignment in blank, irrevocable proxies, all in form and substance satisfactory to Allezoe. In the event any or all of the Pledged Shares are evidenced by a book entry, Parent will execute and deliver or cause to be executed and delivered to Allezoe such control agreements, documents, and agreements as are required by Allezoe to create and perfect a security interest in such uncertificated Pledged Shares, including an Acknowledgement of Issuer in the form of Exhibit 3. In addition, Allezoe will have the right at any time to exchange certificates or instruments representing or evidencing Pledged Shares for certificates or instruments of smaller or larger denominations.
Representations and Warranties. Parent represents and warrants as follows:
The Pledged Shares have been duly authorized and validly issued and are fully paid and non-assessable, as applicable.
Parent is, or at the time of any future delivery, pledge, assignment or transfer will be, the legal and beneficial owner of the Pledged Collateral, free and clear of any lien, security interest, pledge, warrant, option, purchase agreement, shareholders agreement, restriction, redemption agreement or other charge, encumbrance or restriction of any nature on the Pledged Collateral, except for the lien created by this Agreement, with full right to deliver, pledge, assign and transfer the Pledged Collateral to Allezoe as Pledged Collateral hereunder.
The pledge of the Pledged Collateral pursuant to this Agreement creates a valid and perfected first priority security interest in the Pledged Collateral, securing the payment of the Liabilities.
No authorization, approval, or other action by, and no notice to or filing with, any governmental authority or regulatory body is required either (i) for the pledge by Parent of the Pledged Collateral pursuant to this Agreement or for the execution, delivery or performance of this Agreement by Parent, or (ii) for the exercise by Allezoe of the voting or other rights provided for in this Agreement or the remedies in respect of the Pledged Collateral pursuant to this Agreement (except as may be required in connection with a disposition of such shares by laws affecting the offering and sale of securities generally).
Parent has full power and authority to enter into this Agreement and has the right to vote, pledge and grant a security interest in the Pledged Collateral as provided by this Agreement.
To the best of Parents knowledge, none of the Pledged Shares have been issued in violation of any federal, state or other law, regulation or rule pertaining to the issuance of securities, or in violation of any rights, pre-emptive or otherwise, of any present or past equity holder of any Issuer.
Further Assistance. Parent agrees that at any time and from time to time, at its expense, Parent will promptly execute and deliver, or cause to be executed and delivered, all certificates, if any, representing the Pledged Shares, stock and/or other powers, proxies, assignments, instruments and documents; will take all steps necessary to properly register the transfer of the security interest hereunder on the books of each Issuer of any uncertificated securities included in the Pledged Shares; and will take all further action that may be reasonably necessary or desirable, or that Allezoe may reasonably request, in order to perfect and protect any security interest granted or purported to be granted hereby or to enable Allezoe to exercise and enforce its rights and remedies hereunder with respect to any Pledged Collateral and to carry out the provisions and purposes hereof.
Voting Rights; Dividends; Etc.
So long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Parent will be entitled to exercise any and all voting and other consensual rights pertaining to the Pledged Shares or any part thereof for any purpose not inconsistent with the terms of this Agreement or any other Loan Document; provided, however, that Parent will not exercise nor will it refrain from exercising any such right if such action could have a material adverse effect on the value of the Pledged Collateral.
Parent will be entitled to receive and retain any and all dividends and interest paid in respect of the Pledged Collateral as permitted under the Agreement; provided, however, that, except as expressly provided in the Agreement, any and all:
dividends and interest paid or payable other than in cash in respect of, and instruments and other property received, receivable or otherwise distributed in respect of, or in exchange for, any Pledged Collateral;
dividends and other distributions paid or payable in cash in respect of any Pledged Collateral in connection with a partial or total liquidation or dissolution or in connection with a reduction of capital, capital surplus or paid-in-surplus; and
cash paid, payable or otherwise distributed in respect of principal of, or in redemption of, or in exchange for, any Pledged Collateral,
will be Pledged Collateral, and will be forthwith delivered to Allezoe to hold as Pledged Collateral and will, if received by Parent, be received in trust for the benefit of Allezoe, be segregated from the other property of Parent, and be forthwith delivered to Allezoe as Pledged Collateral in the same form as so received (with any necessary endorsement).
Parent will execute and deliver (or cause to be executed and delivered) to Allezoe all such proxies and other instruments as Allezoe may reasonably request for the purpose of enabling Allezoe to exercise the voting and other rights which it is entitled to exercise pursuant to paragraph (b)(i) below and to receive the dividends or interest payments which it is authorized to receive pursuant to paragraph (ii) above.
Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default and delivery by Allezoe of written notice to Parent of Allezoes intention to exercise any of its rights under this Agreement:
All rights of Parent to exercise the voting and other consensual rights which it would otherwise be entitled to exercise pursuant to Section 6(a)(i) and to receive the dividends and interest payments which it would otherwise be authorized to receive and retain pursuant to Section 6(a)(ii) will cease, and all such rights will thereupon become vested in Allezoe which will thereupon have the sole right to exercise such voting and other consensual rights and to receive and hold as Pledged Collateral such dividends and interest payments; and
All dividends and interest payments which are received by Parent contrary to the provisions of paragraph (i) of this Section 6(b) will be received in trust for the benefit of Allezoe, will be segregated from other funds of Parent and will be forthwith paid over to Allezoe as Pledged Collateral in the same form as so received (with any necessary endorsements).
Transfers and Other Liens; Additional Shares. Parent agrees that it will not (i) except as expressly provided in the Agreement, sell, assign, transfer, convey, exchange, pledge or otherwise dispose of, or grant any option, warrant, right, contract or commitment with respect to, any of the Pledged Collateral without the prior written consent of Allezoe, or (ii) create or permit to exist any lien, security interest, pledge, proxy, purchase arrangement, restriction, redemption agreements, shareholders agreement or other charge or encumbrance upon or with respect to any of the Pledged Collateral, except for the lien created by this Agreement and other Permitted Liens.
Application of Proceeds of Sale or Cash Held as Collateral. The proceeds of sale of Pledged Collateral sold pursuant to this Agreement and/or the cash held as Pledged Collateral hereunder will be applied in accordance with the terms of the Agreement.
Allezoe Appointed Attorney-in-Fact. Parent hereby appoints Allezoe as Parents attorney-in-fact, with full authority in the place and stead of Parent and in the name of Parent or otherwise, from time to time in Allezoes discretion, during the existence of an Event of Default, to take any action and to execute any instrument which Allezoe may deem necessary or advisable to accomplish the purposes of this Agreement, including, without limitation, to receive, endorse and collect all instruments made payable to Parent representing any dividend, interest payment or other distribution in respect of the Pledged Collateral or any part thereof and to give full discharge for the same.
Allezoe May Perform. During the existence of an Event of Default, if Parent fails to perform any agreement contained herein, Allezoe may itself perform, or cause performance of, such agreement, and the reasonable invoiced out-of-pocket expenses of Allezoe incurred in connection therewith will be payable by Parent under Section 16.
Reasonable Care. Allezoe will be deemed to have exercised reasonable care in the custody and preservation of the Pledged Collateral in its possession if the Pledged Collateral is accorded treatment substantially equal to that which Allezoe accords its own property, it being understood that Allezoe will have no responsibility for (i) ascertaining or taking action with respect to calls, conversions, exchanges, maturities, tenders or other matters relative to any Pledged Collateral, whether or not Allezoe has or is deemed to have knowledge of such matters, or (ii) taking any necessary steps to preserve rights against any parties with respect to any Pledged Collateral; provided, however, that upon Parents instruction, Allezoe will use reasonable efforts to take such action as Parent directs Allezoe to take with respect to calls, conversions, exchanges, maturities, tenders, rights against other parties or other similar matters relative to the Pledged Collateral, but failure of Allezoe to comply with any such request will not of itself be deemed a failure to exercise reasonable care, and no failure of Allezoe to preserve or protect any rights with respect to the Pledged Collateral against prior parties, or to do any act with respect to preservation of the Pledged Collateral not so requested by Parent, will be deemed a failure to exercise reasonable care in the custody or preservation of the Pledged Collateral.
Subsequent Changes Affecting Collateral. Parent represents to Allezoe that Parent has made its own arrangements for keeping informed of changes or potential changes affecting the Pledged Collateral (including, but not limited to, rights to convert, rights to subscribe, payment of dividends, reorganization or other exchanges, tender offers and voting rights), and Parent agrees that Allezoe will have no responsibility or liability for informing Parent of any such changes or potential changes or for taking any action or omitting to take any action with respect thereto.
Events of Default; Remedies upon an Event of Default.
If any Event of Default occurs and is continuing beyond any stated grace or cure period, Allezoe will have, in addition to all other rights given by law or by this Agreement, the Agreement or otherwise, all of the rights and remedies with respect to the
Pledged Collateral of a secured party under the UCC (or any other applicable jurisdiction) at that time. In addition, with respect to any Pledged Collateral which is or thereafter comes into the possession or custody of Allezoe, Allezoe may sell or cause the same to be sold at any brokers board or at public or private sale, in one or more sales or lots, at such price or prices as Allezoe may reasonably deem best, for cash or on credit or for future delivery, without assumption of any credit risk. Any sale of the Pledged Collateral conducted in conformity with reasonable commercial practices of banks, insurance companies, commercial finance companies, or other financial institutions disposing of property similar to the Pledged Collateral will be deemed to be commercially reasonable. Any requirements of notice will deemed to be a reasonable authenticated notice of disposition if given at least ten (10) days before the time of the sale or disposition and such notice will (i) describe Parent and Allezoe, (ii) describe the Pledged Collateral that is the subject of the intended disposition, (iii) state the method of intended disposition, (iv) state that Parent is entitled to an accounting of the Liabilities and state the charge, if any, for an accounting and (v) state the time and place of any public disposition or the time after which any private sale is to be made. Any other requirement of notice, demand or advertisement for sale is, to the extent permitted by law, waived. Allezoe may disclaim any warranties that might arise in connection with the sale or other disposition of the Pledged Collateral and Allezoe and Parent have no obligation to provide any warranties at such time. Allezoe may, in its own name or in the name of a designee or nominee, buy any of the Pledged Collateral at any public sale held in accordance with the foregoing provisions and, if permitted by applicable law, at any private sale. All reasonable invoiced out-of-pocket expenses (including court costs and reasonable attorneys fees and expenses) of, or incident to, the enforcement of any of the provisions hereof will be recoverable from the proceeds of the sale or other disposition of the Pledged Collateral. In view of the fact that federal and state securities laws may impose certain restrictions on the method by which a sale of the Pledged Collateral may be effected after and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Parent agrees that upon the occurrence and continuance of any Event of Default, Allezoe may, from time to time, attempt to sell all or any part of the Pledged Collateral by means of a private placement, restricting the prospective purchasers to those who can make the representations and agreements required of purchasers of securities in private placements. In so doing, Allezoe may solicit offers to buy the Pledged Collateral, or any part of it, for cash, from a limited number of investors deemed by Allezoe in its judgment, to be responsible parties who might be interested in purchasing the Pledged Collateral, and if Allezoe solicits such offers from not less than three (3) such investors, then the acceptance by Allezoe of the highest offer obtained therefrom will be deemed to be a commercially reasonable method of disposition of the Pledged Collateral.
In addition, upon the occurrence (and during the continuance past and applicable grace or cure period) of an Event of Default, upon Parents receipt of written notice from Allezoe that it is invoking its rights under this Agreement, all rights of Parent to exercise the voting and other rights which it would otherwise be entitled to exercise and to receive cash dividends and interest payments, will cease, and all such rights will thereupon become vested in Allezoe as provided in Section 6.
Authority of Allezoe. Allezoe will have and be entitled to exercise all such powers hereunder as are specifically delegated to Allezoe by this Agreement, together with such powers as are incidental thereto. Allezoe may execute any of its duties hereunder by or through agents or employees. Neither Allezoe, nor any director, manager, officer, agent or employee of
Allezoe, will be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it or them hereunder or in connection herewith, except for its or their own gross negligence or willful misconduct. Parent hereby agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Allezoe and/or any such director, manager, officer, agent or employee from and against any and all liability incurred by any of them, hereunder or in connection herewith, unless such liability is due to its or their own gross negligence or willful misconduct.
Termination. This Agreement will terminate when (i) all the Liabilities (other than contingent indemnification obligations) have been fully paid and performed and the Agreement has been terminated, or, (ii) OTS has directly assumed all obligations to pay the Liabilities, in such form and with such security as is acceptable to Allezoe, at which time Allezoe will promptly reassign and redeliver (or cause to be reassigned and redelivered) to Parent, or to such person or persons as Parent will designate, against receipt, such of the Pledged Collateral (if any) as has not been sold or otherwise applied by Allezoe pursuant to the terms hereof and still held by it hereunder, together with appropriate instruments of reassignment and release. Any such reassignment will be without recourse upon or warranty by Allezoe and at the expense of Parent.
Expenses. Parent agrees to reimburse Allezoe, on demand for any and all reasonable invoiced out-of-pocket expenses, including the reasonable fees and expenses of its counsel and of any experts and agents, which Allezoe may incur in connection with (i) the administration of this Agreement, (ii) the custody or preservation of, or the registration of the Pledged Collateral, (iii) the exercise or enforcement of any of the rights of Allezoe hereunder, or (iv) the failure by Parent to perform or observe any of the provisions hereof.
Security Interest Absolute. All rights of Allezoe and security interests hereunder, and all obligations of Parent hereunder, will be absolute and unconditional irrespective of:
any lack of validity or enforceability of the Agreement or any other agreement or instrument relating thereto;
any change in the time, manner or place of payment of, or in any other term of, all or any of the Liabilities, or any other amendment or waiver of or any consent to any departure from the Agreement;
any exchange, surrender, release or non-perfection of any other collateral, or any release or amendment or waiver of or consent to departure from any guaranty, for all or any of the Liabilities; or
any other circumstance which might otherwise constitute a defense available to, or a discharge of, Parent in respect of the Liabilities or of this Agreement.
Amendments, Waivers and Consents. No amendment or waiver of any provision of this Agreement nor consent to any departure by Parent herefrom, will in any event be effective unless the in writing and signed by Allezoe and Parent, and then such amendment,
waiver or consent will be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which given.
Notices. Any notice required or desired to be served, given or delivered hereunder must be in writing (including facsimile transmission) in accordance with the terms of the Agreement.
Continuing Security Interest. This Agreement will create a continuing security interest in the Pledged Collateral and will (i) remain in full force and effect until payment in full of the Liabilities and the termination of the Agreement; (ii) be binding upon Parent, its successors and assigns; and (iii) inure to the benefit of Allezoe and its respective successors, transferees and permitted assigns.
Waivers. Parent waives presentment and demand for payment of any of the Liabilities, protest and notice of dishonor or default with respect to any of the Liabilities, and all other notices to which Parent might otherwise be entitled, except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement or in the Agreement.
