|1,000,000 Shares||August 31, 2007|
FOR VALUE RECEIVED, eDiets.com, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), hereby certifies that Prides Capital Fund I, L.P. or its assigns, is entitled to purchase from the Company, at any time or from time to time commencing on the date hereof (the “Initial Exercise Date”) and expiring at 5:00 P.M., New York City time, on the ten (10) year anniversary of the Original Issue Date (the “Expiration Date”) ONE MILLION (1,000,000) fully paid and non-assessable shares of Common Stock, par value $.001 per share, of the Company (the “Warrant Shares”) for a per share exercise price of $5.00 (the “Per Share Warrant Price”). The Per Share Warrant Price is subject to adjustment as hereinafter provided. Capitalized terms used and not otherwise defined in this Warrant shall have the meanings specified in Section 8, unless the context otherwise requires.
1. Exercise of Warrant .
(a) This Warrant may be exercised, in whole at any time or in part from time to time, commencing on the Initial Exercise Date and expiring at 5:00 P.M., New York City time, on the Expiration Date (with the Exercise Notice at the end of this Warrant duly executed) at the address set forth in Section 10 hereof, together with payment of the Per Share Warrant Price multiplied by the number of Warrant Shares to which such exercise relates made by delivery to the Company of one or more types of Permitted Consideration.
(b) If this Warrant is exercised in part, the Company will deliver to the Holder within three Trading Days of the date such Holder delivers to the Company this Warrant and an Exercise Notice, together with the payment of the aggregate Per Share Warrant Price for such exercise, a new Warrant covering the Warrant Shares that have not been exercised. By the expiration of the third Trading Day following the Holder’s delivery of a Warrant, together with an Exercise Notice and the payment of the aggregate
Per Share Warrant Price for such exercise, the Company will (i) issue a certificate or certificates in the name of the Holder for the largest number of whole shares of the Common Stock to which the Holder shall be entitled and, if this Warrant is exercised in whole, in lieu of any fractional share of the Common Stock to which the Holder shall be entitled, pay to the Holder cash in an amount equal to the fair value of such fractional share (determined by reference to the closing sales price of the Common Stock on the date of the Exercise Notice), and (ii) deliver the other securities and properties receivable upon the exercise of this Warrant, or the proportionate part thereof if this Warrant is exercised in part, pursuant to the provisions of this Warrant.
(c) If, by the third Trading Day after the date that the Holder delivers an Exercise Notice, together with the payment of the aggregate Per Share Warrant Price for such exercise, the Company fails to deliver the required number of Warrant Shares in the manner required pursuant to Section 1(b), then the Holder will have the right to rescind such exercise.
(d) If, by the third Trading Day after the date that the Holder delivers an Exercise Notice, together with the payment of the aggregate Per Share Warrant Price for such exercise, the Company fails to deliver the required number of Warrant Shares in the manner required pursuant to Section 1(b), and if after such third Trading Day and prior to the receipt of such Warrant Shares, the Holder purchases (in an open market transaction or otherwise) shares of Common Stock to deliver in satisfaction of a sale by the Holder of the Warrant Shares which the Holder anticipated receiving upon such exercise (a “Buy-In”), then the Company shall (1) pay in cash to the Holder the amount by which (x) the Holder’s total purchase price (including brokerage commissions, if any) for the shares of Common Stock so purchased exceeds (y) the amount obtained by multiplying (A) the number of Warrant Shares that the Company was required to deliver to the Holder in connection with the exercise at issue by (B) the closing bid price of the Common Stock at the time of the obligation giving rise to such purchase obligation and (2) at the option of the Holder, either reinstate the portion of the Warrant and equivalent number of Warrant Shares for which such exercise was not honored or deliver to the Holder the number of shares of Common Stock that would have been issued had the Company timely complied with its exercise and delivery obligations hereunder. The Holder shall provide the Company written notice indicating the amounts payable to the Holder in respect of the Buy-In.
(e) If, after the Required Effective Date (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement) the Warrant Shares to be issued are not registered and available for resale by the Holder pursuant to a registration statement in accordance with the Registration Rights Agreement, then notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, the Holder may, at its election exercised in its sole discretion, exercise a portion of this Warrant with respect to an aggregate total of twenty-five percent (25%) of the total Warrant Shares and, in lieu of making a cash payment of Permitted Consideration, elect instead to receive upon such exercise the “Net Number” of shares of Common Stock determined according to the following formula:
Net Number = (A x B) – (A x C)
For purposes of the foregoing formula:
A = the total number of Warrant Shares with respect to which this Warrant is then being exercised.
- 2 -
B = the average of the closing sales prices for the five Trading Days immediately prior to (but not including) the day that the Holder delivers the Exercise Notice at issue.
C = the Per Share Warrant Price.
2. Company’s Option to Change Expiration Date .
Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, in the event that (i) the closing sales price per share of Common Stock is in excess of 150% of the Per Share Warrant Price (as may be adjusted pursuant to Section 3) for thirty (30) consecutive Trading Days, (ii) the Warrant Shares are either registered for resale pursuant to an effective registration statement naming the Holder as a selling stockholder thereunder (and the prospectus thereunder is available for use by the Holder as to all then available Warrant Shares) or freely transferable without volume restrictions pursuant to Rule 144(k) promulgated under the Securities Act, as determined by counsel to the Company pursuant to a written opinion letter addressed and in form and substance reasonably acceptable to the Holder and the transfer agent for the Common Stock, during the entire sixty (60) Trading Day period referenced in (i) above through the expiration of the Call Date as set forth in the Company’s notice pursuant to this Section (the “Call Condition Period”), and (iii) the Company shall have complied in all material respects with its obligations under this Warrant and the Common Stock shall at all times be listed on the AMEX, New York Stock Exchange, the Nasdaq National Market, the Nasdaq Capital Market or the OTC Bulletin Board, then, subject to the conditions set forth in this Section, the Company may, in its sole discretion, elect to change the Expiration Date for the respective Warrant to 5:00 P.M., New York City time on the date that is thirty (30) days after written notice thereof (a “Call Notice”) is received by the Holder (the “Call Date”) at the address last shown on the records of the Company for the Holder or given by the Holder to the Company for the purpose of notice; provided, that the conditions to giving such notice must be in effect at all times during the Call Condition Period or any such notice shall be null and void. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if the Company changes the Expiration Date pursuant to this Section 2, the Holder may, at its election exercised in its sole discretion, exercise a portion of this Warrant with respect to an aggregate total (including any exercises made under Section 1(e)) of twenty-five percent (25%) of the total Warrant Shares and, in lieu of making a cash payment of Permitted Consideration, elect instead to receive upon such exercise the “Net Number” of shares of Common Stock determined according to the formula set forth in Section 1(e).
3. Certain Adjustments . The Per Share Warrant Price and number of Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise of this Warrant are subject to adjustment from time to time as set forth in this Section 3.
(a) If the Company, at any time while this Warrant is outstanding, (i) pays a stock dividend on its Common Stock or otherwise makes a distribution on any class of capital stock that is payable in shares of Common Stock, (ii) subdivides outstanding shares of Common Stock into a larger number of shares, or (iii) combines outstanding shares of Common Stock into a smaller number of shares, then in each such case the Per Share Warrant Price shall be multiplied by a fraction of which the numerator shall be the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately before such event and of which the denominator shall be the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after such event. Any adjustment made pursuant to clause (i) of this paragraph
- 3 -
shall become effective immediately after the record date for the determination of shareholders entitled to receive such dividend or distribution, and any adjustment pursuant to clause (ii) or (iii) of this paragraph shall become effective immediately after the effective date of such subdivision or combination.
(b) If, at any time while this Warrant is outstanding, (1) the Company effects any merger or consolidation of the Company with or into another person, (2) the Company effects any sale of all or substantially all of its assets in one or a series of related transactions, (3) any tender offer or exchange offer (whether by the Company or another Person) is completed pursuant to which holders of Common Stock are permitted to tender or exchange their shares for other securities, cash or property, or (4) the Company effects any reclassification of the Common Stock or any compulsory share exchange pursuant to which the Common Stock is effectively converted into or exchanged for other securities, cash or property (in any such case, a “Fundamental Transaction”), then thereafter this Warrant shall represent the right to receive, upon exercise of this Warrant, the same amount and kind of securities, cash or property as it would have been entitled to receive upon the occurrence of such Fundamental Transaction if it had been, immediately prior to such Fundamental Transaction, the holder of the number of Warrant Shares then issuable upon exercise in full of this Warrant (the “Alternate Consideration”). For purposes of any such exercise, the determination of the Per Share Warrant Price shall be appropriately adjusted to apply to such Alternate Consideration based on the amount of Alternate Consideration issuable in respect of one share of Common Stock in such Fundamental Transaction, and the Company shall apportion the Per Share Warrant Price among the Alternate Consideration in a reasonable manner reflecting the relative value of any different components of the Alternate Consideration. If holders of Common Stock are given any choice as to the securities, cash or property to be received in a Fundamental Transaction, then the Holder shall be given the same choice as to the Alternate Consideration it receives upon any exercise of this Warrant following such Fundamental Transaction. At the Holder’s option and request, any successor to the Company or surviving entity (and, if an entity different from the successor or surviving entity, the entity whose capital stock or assets the Holders of Common Stock are entitled to receive as a result of such Fundamental Transaction) in such Fundamental Transaction shall, either (1) issue to the Holder a new warrant substantially in the form of this Warrant and consistent with the foregoing provisions and evidencing the Holder’s right to purchase the Alternate Consideration for the aggregate Per Share Warrant Price upon exercise thereof, or (2) purchase the Warrant from the Holder for a purchase price, payable in cash within five trading days after such request (or, if later, on the effective date of the Fundamental Transaction), equal to the Black Scholes value of the remaining unexercised portion of this Warrant on the date of such request.
