PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION

Resale of Common Stock by Selling Stockholders
We are registering Common Stock offered by this prospectus on behalf of the selling stockholders. The selling stockholders, which as used herein includes donees, pledgees, transferees or other successors-in-interest selling Common Stock received after the date of this prospectus from a selling stockholder as a gift, pledge, limited liability company or partnership distribution or other transfer, may, from time to time, sell, transfer, distribute or otherwise dispose of any or all of their securities on Nasdaq or any other stock exchange, market or trading facility on which such securities are traded or in private transactions. These dispositions may be at fixed prices, at prevailing market prices at the time of sale, at prices related to the prevailing market price, at varying prices determined at the time of sale or at negotiated prices.
The selling stockholders may use any one or more of the following methods when disposing of their securities or interests therein:
in market transactions, including transactions on a national securities exchange or quotations service or over-the-counter market;

by distribution to its (or its affiliates) limited partners, general partners, members or other equityholders;

in privately negotiated transactions;

through the writing or settlement of options or other hedging transactions, whether through an options exchange or otherwise;

in a block trade in which a broker-dealer will attempt to sell a block of securities as agent but may position and resell a portion of the block as principal to facilitate the transaction;

through the settlement of short sales (including short sales “against the box”), in each case subject to compliance with the Securities Act and other applicable securities laws;

through one or more underwriters in a public offering on a firm commitment or best-efforts basis;

an exchange distribution in accordance with the rules of the applicable exchange, if any;

ordinary brokerage transactions and transactions in which the broker-dealer solicits purchasers;

purchases by a broker-dealer as principal and resale by the broker-dealer for its account;

broker-dealers may agree with the selling stockholders to sell a specified number of such securities at a stipulated price per security;

directly to one or more purchasers;

in other ways not involving market makers or established trading markets;

by pledge to secure debts and other obligations;

through agents; or

in any combination of the above or by any other legally available means.
The selling stockholders may, from time to time, pledge or grant a security interest in some or all of the securities owned by them and, if they default in the performance of their secured obligations, the pledgees or secured parties may offer and sell their securities, from time to time, under this prospectus, or under an amendment to this prospectus under Rule 424(b)(3) or other applicable provision of the Securities Act amending the list of selling stockholders to include the pledgee, transferee or other successors in interest as selling stockholders under this prospectus. The selling stockholders also may transfer their securities in
    8



other circumstances, in which case the transferees, pledgees or other successors in interest will be the selling beneficial owners for purposes of this prospectus.
In connection with the sale of our securities or interests therein, the selling stockholders may enter into hedging transactions with broker-dealers or other financial institutions, which may in turn engage in short sales of our securities in the course of hedging the positions they assume. The selling stockholders may also sell their securities short and deliver these securities to close out their short positions, or loan or pledge such securities to broker-dealers that in turn may sell these securities. The selling stockholders may also enter into option or other transactions with broker-dealers or other financial institutions or the creation of one or more derivative securities which require the delivery to such broker-dealers or other financial institutions of securities offered by this prospectus, which securities such broker-dealers or other financial institutions may resell pursuant to this prospectus (as supplemented or amended to reflect such transaction).
The aggregate proceeds to the selling stockholders from the sale of the securities offered by them will be the purchase price of the security less discounts or commissions, if any. Each of the selling stockholders reserves the right to accept and, together with their agents from time to time, to reject, in whole or in part, any proposed purchase of their securities to be made directly or through agents. We will not receive any of the proceeds from the resale of securities being offered by the selling stockholders named herein. However, we will receive proceeds from the exercise of the Warrants if they are exercised by a holder thereof.
The selling stockholders also may resell all or a portion of their securities in open market transactions in reliance upon Rule 144 under the Securities Act, provided that they meet the criteria and conform to the requirements of that rule.
Underwriters, broker-dealers and agents that act in connection with the sale of securities might be deemed to be “underwriters” within the meaning of Section 2(a)(11) of the Securities Act, and any commissions received by them and any profit on the resale of the securities sold by them while acting as principals might be deemed to be underwriting discounts or commissions under the Securities Act.
A selling stockholder that is an entity may elect to make a pro rata in-kind distribution of the Common Stock to its members, partners or stockholders pursuant to the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part by delivering a prospectus with a plan of distribution. Such members, partners or stockholders would thereby receive freely tradeable Common Stock pursuant to the distribution through a registration statement. To the extent a distributee is an affiliate of ours (or to the extent otherwise required by law), we may file a prospectus supplement in order to permit the distributees to use the prospectus to resell the Common Stock acquired in the distribution. A selling stockholder that is an individual may make gifts of Common Stock covered hereby. Such donees may use the prospectus to resell the ordinary shares or, if required by law, we may file a prospectus supplement naming such donees.
To the extent required, the securities to be sold, the names of the selling stockholders, the respective purchase prices and public offering prices, the names of any agent, dealer or underwriter, and any applicable commissions or discounts with respect to a particular offer will be set forth in an accompanying prospectus supplement or, if appropriate, a post-effective amendment to the registration statement that includes this prospectus.
Blue Sky Restrictions on Resale
In order to comply with the securities laws of some states, if applicable, our securities may be sold in these jurisdictions only through registered or licensed brokers or dealers. In addition, in some states our securities may not be sold unless they have been registered or qualified for sale or an exemption from registration or qualification requirements is available and is complied with.
If a selling stockholder wants to sell its securities under this prospectus in the United States, the selling stockholder will also need to comply with state securities laws, also known as “Blue Sky laws,” with regard to secondary sales. All states offer a variety of exemptions from registration for secondary sales. Many states, for example, have an exemption for secondary trading of securities registered under Section 12(g) of the Securities Exchange Act, or for securities of issuers that publish continuous disclosure of financial and non-financial information in a recognized securities manual, such as Standard & Poor’s. The broker for a selling stockholder will be able to advise a selling stockholder in which states our securities are exempt from registration with that state for secondary sales.
Any person who purchases our securities from a selling stockholder offered by this prospectus who then wants to sell such securities will also have to comply with Blue Sky laws regarding secondary sales.
When the registration statement that includes this prospectus becomes effective, and a selling stockholder indicates in which state(s) such selling stockholder desires to sell such selling stockholder’s securities, we will be able to identify whether such selling stockholder will need to register or will be able to rely on an exemption therefrom.
We have advised the selling stockholders that the anti-manipulation rules of Regulation M under the Exchange Act may apply to sales of securities in the market and to the activities of the selling stockholders and their affiliates. In addition, we will make copies of this prospectus (as it may be supplemented or amended from time to time) available to the selling stockholders for the purpose of satisfying the prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act. The selling stockholders may indemnify any
    9



broker-dealer that participates in transactions involving the sale of their securities against certain liabilities, including liabilities arising under the Securities Act.
We have agreed to indemnify the selling stockholders against liabilities, including certain liabilities under the Securities Act and state securities laws, relating to the registration of the securities offered by this prospectus.
We are required to pay all of our fees and expenses incident to the registration of the securities covered by this prospectus, including with regard to compliance with state securities or “blue sky” laws. The registration expenses of any registration effected by preparing and filing a registration statement or similar document in compliance with the requirements of the Securities Act, and the applicable rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, and such registration statement becoming effective, will be borne by the Company. The parties to the Registration Rights Agreement shall be responsible for any underwriters’ commissions and discounts or brokerage fees in respect of the registrable securities sold by them and the fees and expenses of any legal counsel representing them except as otherwise set forth in the Registration Rights Agreement.

Item 15. Indemnification of Directors and Officers.

Our Certificate of Incorporation provides that all of our directors, officers, employees and agents will be entitled to be indemnified by us to the fullest extent permitted by Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law (the “DGCL”), as is currently in effect or as may be amended. Section 145 of the DGCL as currently in effect provides that a corporation may indemnify directors and officers as well as other employees and individuals against expenses, including attorneys’ fees, judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement in connection with specified actions, suits and proceedings whether civil, criminal, administrative, or investigative, other than a derivative action by or in the right of the corporation, if they acted in good faith and in a manner they reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe their conduct was unlawful. A similar standard is applicable in the case of derivative actions, except that indemnification extends only to expenses, including attorneys’ fees, incurred in connection with the defense or settlement of such action and the statute requires court approval before there can be any indemnification where the person seeking indemnification has been found liable to the corporation. The statute provides that it is not exclusive of other indemnification that may be granted by a corporation's certificate of incorporation, Bylaws, disinterested director vote, stockholder vote, agreement or otherwise.

Our Certificate of Incorporation provides that expenses (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by an officer or director in defending any civil, criminal, administrative, or investigative action, suit or proceeding for which such officer or director may be entitled to indemnification thereunder shall be paid by the Company in advance of the final disposition of such action, suit or proceeding upon receipt of an undertaking by or on behalf of such director or officer to repay such amount if it shall ultimately be determined that he or she is not entitled to be indemnified by the Company as authorized thereby.

The Company has obtained directors' and officers’ insurance to cover its directors, officers and some of its other employees for certain liabilities.

Our Bylaws provide for the indemnification of our directors, officers or other persons in accordance with our Certificate of Incorporation.

We have entered into agreements with our officers and directors to provide contractual indemnification in addition to the indemnification provided for in our current Certificate of Incorporation. The indemnification agreements require us, among other things, to indemnify our directors and officers against certain liabilities that may arise by reason of their status or service as directors and officers and to advance their expenses incurred as a result of any proceeding against them as to which they could be indemnified.

    II - 1


The general effect of the foregoing is to provide indemnification to officers and directors for liabilities that may arise by reason of their status as officers or directors, other than liabilities arising from willful or intentional misconduct, acts or omissions not in good faith, unlawful distributions of corporate assets or transactions from which the officer or director derived an improper personal benefit.

Item 17. Undertakings.

(a)    The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes:

(1)    To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this registration statement:

    (i)    To include any prospectus required by section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act;
    II - 3



(ii)     To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of the registration statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the registration statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than 20% change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the “Calculation of Registration Fee” table in the effective registration statement; and

(iii)     To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the registration statement or any material change to such information in the registration statement; provided, however, that (B) paragraphs (a)(1)(i), (ii), and (iii) of this section do not apply if the registration statement is on Form S-1 or Form S-3 and the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in reports filed with or furnished to the Commission by the registrant pursuant to Section 13 or 15(d) of the Exchange Act that are incorporated by reference in the registration statement, or, as to a registration statement on Form S-3 is contained in a form of prospectus filed pursuant to §230.424(b) of this chapter that is part of the registration statement.
    
(2)    That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

(3)     To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.

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

    (i)    If the registrant is relying on Rule 430B:

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

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

(6)    That, for the purpose of determining liability of the registrant under the Securities Act to any purchaser in the initial distribution of the securities:

    II - 4


The undersigned registrant undertakes that in a primary offering of securities of the undersigned registrant pursuant to this registration statement, regardless of the underwriting method used to sell the securities to the purchaser, if the securities are offered or sold to such purchaser by means of any of the following communications, the undersigned registrant will be a seller to the purchaser and will be considered to offer or sell such securities to such purchaser:
    
(i)    Any preliminary prospectus or prospectus of the undersigned registrant relating to the offering required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424;

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

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

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

(b)    The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each filing of the registrant’s annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plan’s annual report pursuant to Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act) that is incorporated by reference in the registration statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

(h)    Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.

(ii)    payment to the Company of the Aggregate Exercise Price in accordance with Section 3(b).

(b)Payment of the Aggregate Exercise Price. Payment of the Aggregate Exercise Price shall be made, at the option of the Holder as expressed in the Notice of Exercise, by the following methods:

(i)    by delivery to the Company of a certified or official bank check payable to the order of the Company or by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account designated in writing by the Company, in the amount of such Aggregate Exercise Price;

(ii)    by instructing the Company to withhold a number of Warrant Shares then issuable upon exercise of this Warrant with an aggregate Fair Market Value as of the Exercise Date equal to such Aggregate Exercise Price; or

(c)Delivery of Stock Certificates and/or Book-Entry Shares.

The stock certificate or certificates or book-entry interests of Warrant Shares so delivered or issued, as the case may be, shall be, to the extent possible, in such denomination or denominations as the exercising Holder shall reasonably request in the Notice of Exercise and shall be registered in the name of the Holder or, subject to compliance with Section 5 below, such other Person's name as shall be designated in the Notice of Exercise.

Such new Warrant shall in all other respects be identical to this Warrant.

(e)Valid Issuance of Warrant and Warrant Shares; Payment of Taxes. With respect to the exercise of this Warrant, the Company hereby represents, warrants, covenants and agrees as follows:

(ii)    All Warrant Shares issuable upon the exercise of this Warrant pursuant to the terms hereof shall be, upon issuance, and the Company shall take all such actions as may be necessary or appropriate in order that such Warrant Shares are, validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable, issued without violation of any preemptive or similar rights of any stockholder of the Company and free and clear of all taxes, liens and charges.

(iii)    The Company shall use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that all such Warrant Shares are issued without violation by the Company of any applicable law or governmental regulation or any requirements of any domestic securities exchange upon which shares of Common Stock or other securities constituting Warrant Shares may be listed at the time of such exercise (except for official notice of issuance which shall be immediately delivered by the Company upon each such issuance).

(iv)    The Company shall pay all expenses in connection with, and all taxes and other governmental charges that may be imposed with respect to, the issuance or delivery of Warrant Shares upon exercise of this Warrant; provided, that the Company shall not be required to pay any tax or governmental charge that may be imposed with respect to any applicable withholding or the issuance or delivery of the Warrant Shares to any Person other than the Holder, and no such issuance or delivery shall be made unless and until the Person requesting such issuance has paid to the Company the amount of any such tax, or has established to the satisfaction of the Company that such tax has been paid.

(f)Reservation of Shares.

{N4292659.2}


Exercise Price. The Company shall not increase the par value of any Warrant Shares receivable upon the exercise of this Warrant above the Exercise Price then in effect, and shall take all such actions as may be necessary or appropriate in order that the Company may validly and legally issue fully paid and nonassessable shares of Common Stock upon the exercise of this Warrant.

(g)Holders Exercise Limitation. Subject to the provisions set forth in Section 5.6(ii) of the Commitment Agreement, until Stockholder Rule 5635 Approval is obtained, the Company shall not effect any exercise of this Warrant, and a Holder shall not have the right to exercise any portion of this Warrant, pursuant to this Section 3 or otherwise, to the extent that after giving effect to such exercise as set forth on the applicable Notice of Exercise, such exercise would cause the Company to have issued a number of Warrant Shares with respect to Warrants issued pursuant to the Commitment Agreement, together with any shares of Common Stock issued upon the exercise of warrants as contemplated by the Commitment Agreement or in transactions that would otherwise require shareholder approval under Nasdaq Rule 5635 that are contemplated by the Commitment Agreement (in each case, to the extent such warrants or Common Stock are actually issued by the Company pursuant to legally binding definitive agreements among the applicable parties), greater than 19.9% of the Company’s outstanding Common Stock or outstanding voting power immediately prior to the Closing on the Closing Date. The limitations contained in this paragraph shall apply to a successor holder of this Warrant.

4.Adjustments. In order to prevent dilution of the purchase rights granted under this Warrant, the Warrant Share Number issuable upon exercise of this Warrant shall be subject to adjustment (an “Adjustment”) from time to time as provided in this Section 4 (in each case, after taking into consideration any prior Adjustments pursuant to this Section 4).

(a)Adjustment to Number of Warrant Shares Upon Dividend, Subdivision or Combination of Common Stock. If the Company shall, at any time or from time to time after the date hereof, (i) pay a dividend or make any other distribution upon the Common Stock or any other capital stock of the Company payable in shares of Common Stock or in Options or Convertible Securities to all or substantially all the holders of the Common Stock, or (ii) subdivide (by any stock split, recapitalization or otherwise) its outstanding shares of Common Stock into a greater number of shares, in each case other than any such transaction covered by Section 4(b), Section 4(c), or Section 4(d), the Warrant Share Number immediately prior to any such dividend, distribution or subdivision shall be proportionately increased so that the Holder shall be entitled to receive upon the exercise of this Warrant the number of shares of Common Stock or other securities of the Company that the Holder would have owned or would have been entitled to receive upon or by reason of any event described above, had this Warrant been exercised or converted immediately prior to the occurrence of such event. If the Company at any time combines (by combination, reverse stock split or otherwise) its outstanding shares of Common Stock into a smaller number of shares, the Warrant Share Number immediately prior to such combination shall be proportionately decreased so that the Holder shall be entitled to receive upon the exercise of this Warrant the number of shares of Common Stock or other securities of the Company that the Holder would have owned or would have been entitled to receive upon or by reason of any event described above, had this Warrant been exercised or
{N4292659.2}


converted immediately prior to the occurrence of such event. Any Adjustment under this Section 4(a) shall become effective immediately after the open of business on the Ex-dividend Date for such dividend or immediately after the open of business on the effective date for such subdivision or combination.

(b)Adjustment Upon Cash Distributions and Other Distributions. If the Company distributes to the holders of Common Stock, (x) cash or any other property or securities, or (y) any rights, options or warrants to subscribe for or purchase any of the foregoing (other than, in each case set forth in clause (x) and clause (y), any dividend or distribution described in Section 4(a) or Section 4(d)), then, in each such case, the Holder shall be entitled to participate in such distribution to the same extent that the Holder would have participated therein if the Holder had exercised this Warrant in full immediately before the date of which a record is taken for such distribution, or, if no such record is taken, the date as of which the record holders of Common Stock are to be determined for the participation in such distribution. For the avoidance of doubt, no repurchase or redemption by the Company or any of its subsidiaries of any securities of the Company shall be considered a distribution.

(c)Adjustment Upon Reorganization, Reclassification, Consolidation or Merger. In the event of any (i) capital reorganization of the Company, (ii) reclassification of the stock of the Company (other than a change in par value or from par value to no par value or from no par value to par value or as a result of a stock dividend or subdivision, split-up or combination of shares), (iii) consolidation or merger of the Company with or into another Person, (iv) sale of all or substantially all of the Company’s assets to another Person, (v) Deemed Liquidation Event or (vi) other similar transaction, in each case which entitles all or substantially all of the holders of Common Stock to receive (either directly or upon subsequent liquidation) stock, securities, cash or other assets or consideration with respect to or in exchange for Common Stock, each Warrant shall, immediately prior to the time of such reorganization, reclassification, consolidation, merger, sale or similar transaction, be canceled (without any action of the Holder and regardless of any limitation or restriction on the exercisability of this Warrant that may otherwise be applicable) with the Holder entitled to receive the kind and number of shares of stock, securities, cash or other assets or consideration resulting from such transaction to which the Holder would have been entitled as a holder of the applicable number of Warrant Shares then issuable hereunder as a result of such exercise if the Holder had exercised this Warrant in full immediately prior to the time of such reorganization, reclassification, consolidation, merger, sale or similar transaction and acquired the applicable number of Warrant Shares then issuable hereunder as a result of such exercise (without taking into account any limitations or restrictions on the exercisability of this Warrant). The Company shall make provision for compliance with this Section 4(c) in the agreements, if any, relating to such transactions, if necessary to give effect to this Section 4(c).

(d)Adjustment of Warrant Upon Spin-off. If, at any time after the issuance of this Warrant but prior to the exercise hereof, the Company shall spinoff another Person (the “Spinoff Entity”), then the Company (a) shall issue to the Holder a new warrant to purchase, at the Exercise Price, the number of shares of common stock or other proprietary interest in the Spinoff Entity (and any other consideration) that the Holder would have owned had the Holder
{N4292659.2}


exercised or converted this Warrant immediately prior to the consummation of such spinoff and (b) shall make provision therefor in the agreement, if any, relating to such spin-off. Such new warrant shall provide for rights and obligations which shall be as nearly equivalent as may be practicable to the rights and obligations provided for in this Warrant. The provisions of this Section 4(d) (and any equivalent thereof in any such new warrant) shall apply to successive transactions.

(e)Certificate as to Adjustment.

(i)    As promptly as reasonably practicable following any adjustment of the number of Warrant Shares pursuant to the provisions of this Section 4, but in any event not later than five (5) Business Days thereafter, the Company shall furnish to the Holder a certificate of an officer of the Company setting forth in reasonable detail such Adjustment and the facts upon which it is based and certifying the calculation thereof.

(ii)    As promptly as reasonably practicable following the receipt by the Company of a written request by the Holder, but in any event not later than five (5) Business Days thereafter, the Company shall furnish to the Holder a certificate of an officer of the Company certifying the number of Warrant Shares or the amount, if any, of other shares of stock, securities or assets then issuable upon exercise of the Warrant.

(f)Notices. In the event:

(i)    that the Company shall take a record of the holders of its Common Stock (or other capital stock or securities at the time issuable upon exercise of the Warrant) for the purpose of entitling or enabling them to receive any dividend or other distribution (including any spin-off); or

(ii)    of any capital reorganization of the Company, any reclassification of the Common Stock of the Company, any consolidation or merger of the Company with or into another Person, or sale of all or substantially all of the Company's assets to another Person;
(iii)    of the voluntary or involuntary dissolution, liquidation or winding-up of the Company; or

(iv)    any other event that may cause an Adjustment;

then, and in each such case, the Company shall send or cause to be sent to the Holder at least ten (10) Business Days or, if less, as soon as practicable, prior to the applicable Ex-dividend Date, record date or the applicable expected effective date, as the case may be, for the event, a written notice specifying, as the case may be, (A) the Ex-dividend Date, the record date for such dividend or distribution, and a description of such dividend or distribution, or (B) the effective date on which such reorganization, reclassification, consolidation, merger, sale, dissolution, liquidation, winding-up or other event is proposed to take place, and the date, if any is to be fixed, as of which the books of the Company shall close or a record shall be taken with respect to
{N4292659.2}


which the holders of record of Common Stock (or such other capital stock or securities at the time issuable upon exercise of the Warrant) shall be entitled to exchange their shares of Common Stock (or such other capital stock or securities) for securities or other property deliverable upon such reorganization, reclassification, consolidation, merger, sale, dissolution, liquidation, winding-up or other event, and the amount per share and character of such exchange applicable to the Warrant and the Warrant Shares.

(g)In the event that more than one Adjustment is required to be made in connection with an event or series of events, the Adjustments pursuant to this Section 4 shall be applied in such order as to provide the holders of the Warrants with the benefits to which they would have been entitled had the Warrants been exercised immediately prior to the earliest record date for such events.

5.Transfer of Warrant. Subject to the transfer conditions referred to in the legend endorsed hereon and in Section 8, this Warrant and all rights hereunder are and will be transferable, in whole or in part, by the Holder without charge to the Holder, upon surrender of this Warrant to the Company at its then principal executive offices with a properly completed and duly executed assignment agreement in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Company, together with funds sufficient to pay any transfer taxes described in the proviso to Section 3(e)(iv) in connection with the making of such transfer.

Except as expressly set forth herein, this Warrant does not entitle the Holder to any voting rights or other rights as a shareholder of the Company until the Holder has received Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise of this Warrant pursuant to the terms hereof, nor shall anything contained in this Warrant be construed to confer upon the Holder, as such, any of the rights of a stockholder of the Company or any right to vote, give or withhold consent to any corporate action (whether any reorganization, issue of stock, reclassification of stock, consolidation, merger, conveyance or otherwise), receive notice of meetings, receive dividends (except as set forth in Section 5) or subscription rights, or otherwise. In addition, nothing contained in this Warrant shall be construed as imposing any liabilities on the Holder to purchase any securities (upon exercise of this Warrant or otherwise) or as a stockholder of the Company, whether such liabilities are asserted by the Company or by creditors of the Company.

The Holder, by acceptance of this Warrant, agrees to comply in all respects with the provisions of this Section 8 and the restrictive legend requirements set forth on the face of this Warrant and further agrees that such Holder shall not offer, sell or otherwise dispose of this Warrant or any Warrant Shares to be issued upon exercise hereof except under circumstances that will not result in a violation of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). This Warrant and all Warrant Shares issued upon exercise of this Warrant shall be stamped or imprinted with a legend in substantially the following form:

“THIS SECURITY AND THE SECURITIES, IF ANY, ISSUABLE UPON EXERCISE OF THIS SECURITY HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “SECURITIES ACT”), AND MAY NOT BE OFFERED, SOLD, PLEDGED OR OTHERWISE TRANSFERRED EXCEPT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE FOLLOWING SENTENCE. BY ITS ACQUISITION HEREOF OR OF A BENEFICIAL INTEREST HEREIN, THE ACQUIRER:

(i)    REPRESENTS THAT IT IS AN ACCREDITED INVESTOR WITHIN THE MEANING OF REGULATION D AS PROMULGATED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT, AND

(ii)    AGREES FOR THE BENEFIT OF INFRASTRUCTURE AND ENERGY ALTERNATIVES, INC. (THE “COMPANY”) THAT IT WILL NOT OFFER, SELL, PLEDGE OR OTHERWISE TRANSFER THIS SECURITY AND THE SECURITIES, IF ANY, ISSUABLE UPON EXERCISE OF THIS SECURITY OR ANY BENEFICIAL INTEREST HEREIN OR THEREIN EXCEPT:

NO REPRESENTATION IS MADE AS TO THE AVAILABILITY OF ANY EXEMPTION FROM THE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS OF THE SECURITIES ACT.”

The requirement imposed by this Section 8 shall cease and terminate as to this Warrant or any particular Warrant Share when, in the written opinion of counsel reasonably acceptable to the Company, such legend is no longer required in order to assure compliance by the Company with the Securities Act. Wherever such requirement shall cease and terminate as to this Warrant or any Warrant Share, the Holder or the holder of such Warrant Share, as the case may be, shall be entitled to receive from the Company, without expense, a new warrant or a new stock certificate, as the case may be, not bearing the legend set forth in this Section 8.

The Holder is acquiring this Warrant and the Warrant Shares to be issued upon exercise hereof for investment for its own account and not with a view towards, or for resale in connection with, the public sale or distribution of this Warrant or the Warrant Shares, except pursuant to sales registered or exempted under the Securities Act.
(ii)    The Holder understands and acknowledges that this Warrant and the Warrant Shares to be issued upon exercise hereof are “restricted securities” under the federal securities laws inasmuch as they are being acquired from the Company in a transaction not involving a public offering and that, under such laws and applicable regulations, such securities may be resold without registration under the Securities Act only in certain limited circumstances. In addition, the Holder represents that it is familiar with Rule 144 under the Securities Act, as presently in effect, and understands the resale limitations imposed thereby and by the Securities Act.
{N4292659.2}


(iii)    The Holder acknowledges that it can bear the economic and financial risk of its investment for an indefinite period, 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 Warrant and the Warrant Shares. The Holder has had an opportunity to ask questions and receive answers from the Company regarding the terms and conditions of the offering of the Warrant and the business, properties, prospects and financial condition of the Company.

9.Tax Treatment. The parties hereto agree that (i) the Warrant shall be treated as common equity of the Company for U.S. federal, and applicable state and local, income tax purposes and (ii) the exchange of the Warrant for Warrant Shares pursuant to Section 3 shall be treated as a recapitalization within the meaning of Section 368(a)(1)(E) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. The parties hereto agree that the aggregate fair market value of the Warrant on the Original Issue Date was $2.84 per Warrant Share and that such amount of the Stated Value (as defined in the Commitment Agreement) of the Exchanged Series A Shares (as defined in the Preferred Stock Exchange Agreement) will be allocable to the Holder’s Warrants ratably on the basis of the number of Warrant Shares with the balance of the Stated Value of the Exchanged Series A Shares allocable to the Holder’s shares of Series B-3 Preferred Stock issued to the Holder pursuant to the Preferred Stock Exchange Agreement for U.S. federal, and applicable state and local, income tax purposes. If a Holder receives additional Warrants pursuant to Section 1(c) of the Preferred Stock Exchange Agreement, such additional Warrants will be treated as an adjustment to purchase price of the Holder’s Warrants and the Holder’s shares of Series B-3 Preferred Stock for U.S. federal, and applicable state and local, income tax purposes, with such additional Warrants valued at the same amount stated in the first sentence of this Section 9, and the allocation of the Stated Value of the Exchanged Series A Shares pursuant to this Section 9 shall be readjusted accordingly. The parties hereto shall prepare their respective U.S. federal, and applicable state and local income Tax Returns in a manner consistent with the foregoing treatment and allocation.

10.Warrant Register. The Company shall keep and properly maintain at its principal executive offices books for the registration of the Warrant and any transfers thereof. The Company may deem and treat the Person in whose name the Warrant is registered on such register as the Holder thereof for all purposes, and the Company shall not be affected by any notice to the contrary, except any assignment, division, combination or other transfer of the Warrant effected in accordance with the provisions of this Warrant.

11.Notices. All notices, requests, consents, claims, demands, waivers and other communications hereunder shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been given: (a) when delivered by hand (with written confirmation of receipt); (b) when received by the addressee if sent by a nationally recognized overnight courier (receipt requested); (c) on the date sent by facsimile or e-mail of a PDF document (with confirmation of transmission) if sent during normal business hours of the recipient, and on the next Business Day if sent after normal business hours of the recipient; or (d) on the third day after the date mailed, by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid. Such communications must be sent to the respective parties at the addresses indicated below (or at such other address for a party as shall be specified in a notice given in accordance with this Section 11).

{N4292659.2}


13.Successor and Assigns. This Warrant and the rights evidenced hereby shall be binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of the successors of the Company and the successors and permitted assigns of the Holder. Such successors and/or permitted assigns of the Holder shall be deemed to be a Holder for all purposes hereunder.

14.No Third-Party Beneficiaries. This Warrant is for the sole benefit of the Company and the Holder and their respective successors and, in the case of the Holder, permitted assigns and nothing herein, express or implied, is intended to or shall confer upon any other Person any legal or equitable right, benefit or remedy of any nature whatsoever, under or by reason of this Warrant.

15.Headings. The headings in this Warrant are for reference only and shall not affect the interpretation of this Warrant.

16.Amendment and Modification; Waiver. Except as otherwise provided herein, this Warrant may only be amended, modified or supplemented by an agreement in writing signed by each party hereto. No waiver by the Company or the Holder of any of the provisions hereof shall be effective unless explicitly set forth in writing and signed by the party so waiving. No waiver by any party shall operate or be construed as a waiver in respect of any failure, breach or default not expressly identified by such written waiver, whether of a similar or different character, and whether occurring before or after that waiver. No failure to exercise, or delay in exercising, any right, remedy, power or privilege arising from this Warrant shall operate or be construed as a waiver thereof; nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, remedy, power or privilege hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, remedy, power or privilege.

If any term or provision of this Warrant is invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect any other term or provision of this Warrant or invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction.

18.Governing Law; Specific Enforcement; Submission to Jurisdiction; Waiver of Jury Trial.

(a)This Warrant shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Delaware applicable to agreements made and to be performed entirely within such state, without regard to the conflicts of law principles of such state.

It is accordingly agreed that the parties hereto shall be entitled to an injunction or injunctions to prevent breaches or threatened breaches of this Warrant and to enforce specifically the terms and provisions of this Warrant in any court of competent jurisdiction, in each case without proof of damages or otherwise (and each party hereto hereby waives any requirement for the securing or posting of any bond in connection with such remedy), this being in addition to any other remedy to which they are entitled at law or in equity. The
{N4292659.2}


parties hereto agree not to assert that a remedy of specific enforcement is unenforceable, invalid, contrary to law or inequitable for any reason, nor to assert that a remedy of monetary damages would provide an adequate remedy.

(c)Each of the parties hereto irrevocably and unconditionally submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware (or, if the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware declines to accept jurisdiction, any state or federal court within the State of Delaware), for the purposes of any action or legal proceeding arising out of this Warrant and the rights and obligations arising hereunder, and irrevocably and unconditionally waives any objection to the laying of venue of any such action or legal proceeding in any such court, and further irrevocably and unconditionally waives and agrees not to plead or claim in any such court that any such action or legal proceeding has been brought in an inconvenient forum. Each party hereto agrees that service of any process, summons, notice or document by registered mail to such party’s respective address set forth in Section 11 shall be effective service of process for any such action or legal proceeding.

(d)Each party hereto hereby waives, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Law, any right it may have to a trial by jury in respect of any action, claim or legal proceeding directly or indirectly arising out of, under or in connection with this Warrant. Each party hereto (i) certifies that no representative of any other party has represented, expressly or otherwise, that such other party would not, in the event of any action, claim or legal proceeding, seek to enforce the foregoing waiver and (ii) acknowledges that it and the other parties hereto have been induced to enter into this Warrant by, among other things, the mutual waivers and certifications in this SECTION 18.

19.Counterparts. This Warrant may be executed in counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of which together shall be deemed to be one and the same agreement. A signed copy of this Warrant delivered by facsimile, e-mail or other means of electronic transmission shall be deemed to have the same legal effect as delivery of an original signed copy of this Warrant.

20.No Strict Construction. This Warrant shall be construed without regard to any presumption or rule requiring construction or interpretation against the party drafting an instrument or causing any instrument to be drafted.

Infrastructure and Energy Alternatives, Inc.
6325 Digital Way, Suite 460
Indianapolis, Indiana 46278


Ladies and Gentlemen:

We have acted as counsel for Infrastructure and Energy Alternatives, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), with respect to the preparation of a Registration Statement on Form S-3 (the “Registration Statement”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), on or about the date hereof in connection with the offer and sale by the selling stockholders named in the Registration Statement (the “Selling Stockholders”) of an aggregate of 25,493,021 shares of Common Stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”), of the Company, consisting of

(i) 2,026,650 shares of issued and outstanding Common Stock held by certain Selling Stockholders (the “Issued and Outstanding Common Stock”);
(ii) up to 1,631,471 shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of shares of Series A Preferred Stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Series A Preferred Stock”), held by certain Selling Stockholders (the “Series A Preferred Stock Conversion Shares”);

(iii) 7,672,067 shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of outstanding warrants to purchase Common Stock held by certain Selling Stockholders (the “Warrants,” and the shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Warrants, the “Warrant Shares”); and

(iv) up to 14,162,833 shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of shares of Series B Preferred Stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Series B Preferred Stock” and together with the Series A Preferred Stock, the “Preferred Stock”), held by certain Selling Stockholders (the “Series B Preferred Stock Conversion Shares” and together with the Series A Preferred Stock Conversion Shares, the “Preferred Stock Conversion Shares”).

We have also participated in the preparation of a Prospectus (the “Prospectus”) relating to the Preferred Stock Conversion Shares and Warrants Shares, which is contained in the Registration Statement to which this opinion is an exhibit.

In connection with the opinions hereinafter expressed, we have examined, among other things: (i) the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation of the Company, the Certificates of Designations of the Preferred Stock (the “Certificates of Designations”), and the agreements governing the Warrants (the “Warrant Agreements”), (ii) the Amended and Restated Bylaws of the Company, (iii) the Registration Statement and the Prospectus, (iv) originals, or copies certified or otherwise identified, of the records and minute books of the Company, as furnished to us by the Company, (v) originals, or copies certified or otherwise identified, of certificates of public officials and of representatives of the Company, and (vi) such other documents and questions of law as we have deemed necessary or appropriate for purposes of this opinion. As to matters of fact relevant to the opinions expressed herein, and as to factual matters arising in connection with our examination of corporate documents, records and other documents and writings, we relied upon certificates and other communications of corporate officers of the Company, without further investigation as to the facts set forth therein.

In connection with the opinions hereinafter expressed, we have assumed that: (i) the Registration Statement and any amendments thereto (including post-effective amendments) will have become effective and will have



complied with all applicable laws, and no stop order suspending its effectiveness will have been issued and remains in effect; (ii) one or more prospectus supplements, if required, will have been prepared and filed with the Commission; (iii) all Common Stock will be issued and sold in compliance with applicable federal and state securities laws and in the manner stated in the Registration Statement and any applicable prospectus supplement to the Prospectus, if any; (iv) any Preferred Stock Conversion Shares and Warrant Shares will have been issued in accordance with the corporate and organizational documents of the Company; (v) the issuance of the Preferred Stock Conversion Shares and Warrant Shares will not, in each case, violate the organizational documents of the Company then in effect or any law, regulation, government or court-imposed order, restriction, agreement or instrument then binding on the Company; (vi) upon the issuance by the Company of the Preferred Stock Conversion Shares upon conversion of the Preferred Stock and Warrant Shares upon the exercise of the Warrants, as applicable, the total number of shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding will not exceed the total number of shares thereof that the Company is then authorized to issue under its organizational documents; (vii) the certificates for the Common Stock, when issued, will conform to the specimens thereof examined by us; and (viii) each document submitted to us for review is accurate and complete and the information therein is true and correct, each such document that is an original is authentic, each such document that is a copy conforms to an authentic original and all signatures on each such document are genuine.

Based upon and subject to the foregoing, we are of the opinion that (a) the Issued and Outstanding Common Stock have been duly authorized and are validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable, (b) the Preferred Stock Conversion Shares have been duly authorized, and when issued upon conversion of the Preferred Stock in accordance with their respective Certificates of Designations, will be validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable, and (c) the Warrant Shares have been duly authorized, and when issued upon exercise of the Warrants in accordance with the terms of the Warrants, will be validly issued, fully paid, and non-assessable.

This opinion is limited in all respects to the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware and the federal laws of the United States of America. We express no opinion as to any other law or any matter other than as expressly set forth above, express no opinion and provide no assurance as to compliance with any federal or state securities law, rule or regulation, and no opinion as to any other law or matter may be inferred or implied.

We hereby consent to the filing of this opinion of counsel as Exhibit 5.1 to the Registration Statement. We also consent to the reference to our Firm under the heading “Legal Matters” in the Prospectus forming a part of the Registration Statement. In giving this consent, we do not hereby admit that we are in the category of persons whose consent is required under Section 7 of the Securities Act.

Sincerely,

/s/ Jones Walker LLP
