Ainsworth Game Technology, Inc. (the “Subscriber”), hereby subscribes as capital in GAN Limited, a Bermuda exempted company limited by shares (the “Company”), to common shares of the Company, as set forth in Section 1 hereof (the “Securities”). The Securities are being offered and issued on the terms set forth in this Subscription Agreement (this “Agreement”).
1. Subscription. Reference is made to that certain Amended and Restated Integration and Content Distribution Agreement (the “Commercial Agreement”), by and between GAN Nevada, Inc., a wholly-owned indirect subsidiary of the Company, and the Subscriber dated as of the date hereof. As contemplated by the Commercial Agreement, by execution of this Agreement and completion of the Accredited Investor Questionnaire attached hereto as Exhibit A (the “Investor Questionnaire”), the Subscriber hereby subscribes for 1,250,000 ordinary shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share, in consideration for execution of the Commercial Agreement (and the Interactive Game License referred to therein) and the mutual obligations set forth therein.
2. Representations, Warranties and Covenants of the Subscriber. The Subscriber hereby represents, warrants and covenants to the Company as follows:
(a) Information. The Subscriber and, to the extent deemed necessary by the Subscriber, any of the Subscriber’s representatives have been provided access by the Company to the following filings of Company with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”): (1) the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, filed on April 15, 2022 (the “Annual Report”), (2) the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2022, filed on November 14, 2022 and (3) each of the Company’s Current Reports on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission following the Annual Report (including the Exhibits attached thereto, collectively, the “Public SEC Filings”). The Subscriber and, to the extent deemed necessary by the Subscriber, any of the Subscriber’s representatives, have been afforded the opportunity to ask questions concerning the Public SEC Filings. The Subscriber understands and has fully considered for purposes of this investment the section entitled “Risks Factors” set forth in the Annual Report and that: (a) the Securities constitute a speculative investment involving a high degree of risk of loss by the Subscriber of the Subscriber’s investment therein; (b) there is no guaranty that, when shares of the Securities are sellable, there will be a market for the Securities; and (c) accordingly, it may not be possible for the Subscriber to liquidate the Subscriber’s investment in the Securities in case of emergency. In making a decision to invest in the Securities, the Subscriber has relied solely upon the information and statements contained in the Public SEC Filings, including all of the Exhibits thereto, and any other materials specifically referred to therein, upon the terms and conditions of the Commercial Agreement and all attachments thereto, including without limitation the representations, warranties, covenants and agreements of the Company set forth in the Commercial Agreement, and upon the terms and conditions of this Agreement and all attachments hereto, including without limitation the representations, warranties, covenants and agreements of the Company set forth herein, and has not relied upon any other statements or information, whether written or oral, except for those that the Subscriber has obtained from the Subscriber’s own advisors.
(b) Disclosure. Other than (x) the representations and warranties of the Company set forth in Section 3 hereof and/or in the Commercial Agreement and (y) the information contained in the Public SEC Filings, (i) neither the Company nor any of its affiliates or subsidiaries nor any of their respective officers, directors, executives, employees, advisors, members, managers, shareholders or other personnel or agents makes any representation or warranty, expressed or implied, as to the accuracy or completeness of the information provided or to be provided to the Subscriber by or on behalf of the Company or related to the transactions contemplated hereby, and (ii) nothing contained in any documents provided or statements made by or on behalf of the Company to the Subscriber is, or shall be relied upon as, a promise or representation by the Company or any other person that any such information is accurate or complete except to the extent expressly provided therein.
(c) Reliance on Own Investigation and Advisors. The Subscriber has conducted due diligence in reaching the decision to invest in the Securities. The Subscriber acknowledges that the Subscriber has been advised to consult with the Subscriber’s own legal advisors concerning the legal aspects of the Company and to consult with the Subscriber’s tax advisors regarding the tax consequences of investing in the Company. The Subscriber has carefully considered and has, to the extent the Subscriber believed such discussion necessary, discussed with the Subscriber’s professional legal, tax and financial advisers the suitability of investing in the Securities for the Subscriber’s particular tax and financial situation and has determined that such investment is acceptable to the Subscriber. The Subscriber is not relying on the Company or its affiliates or subsidiaries or any of their respective affiliates, officers, directors, executives, employees, advisors, members, managers, shareholders or other personnel or agents for legal, accounting, financial or tax advice in connection with the Subscriber’s evaluation of the risks and merits of an investment in the Company or of the consequences to the Subscriber of such an investment.
(d) Investment Intent. The Subscriber is an “accredited investor” as defined in Rule 501 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) and is acquiring the Securities for the Subscriber’s own account, for investment only, and not with a view to, or for resale in connection with, any “distribution” thereof within the meaning of the Securities Act. The Subscriber has no contract, undertaking, agreement or arrangement with any person to sell, transfer, or assign to such person or anyone else all or any part of the Securities which the Subscriber subscribes, and the Subscriber has no current plans or intentions to enter into any such contract, undertaking or arrangement.
(e) Resale Restrictions. The Subscriber acknowledges that (i) the Securities have not been registered under the Securities Act or the securities statutes of any state or other jurisdiction, (ii) the Securities have the status of securities acquired in a transaction under Section 4(2) of the Securities Act and/or Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated thereunder by the SEC, and under applicable state securities laws, (iii) the Securities are “restricted securities” (as that term is defined in Rule 144(a)(3) under the Securities Act), (iv) therefore, the Securities cannot be resold (and the Subscriber covenants that the Subscriber will not resell them) unless they are registered under applicable federal and state securities laws (including the Securities Act) or unless exemptions from all such applicable registration requirements are available, and (v) consequently, the Subscriber must bear the economic risk of investment for an indefinite period of time. The Subscriber further understands that the issuance of the Securities has not been and will not be reviewed by, passed on, or submitted to the SEC, nor has the SEC or any other agency made any finding or determination as to the fairness of an investment in the Securities, nor any recommendation or endorsement of the Securities. The Subscriber will not sell or otherwise transfer any of the Securities without either the prior registration of the Securities under the Securities Act and all other applicable statutes, or applicable exemptions from the registration requirements of each of those statutes, and unless and until the Company has determined, by obtaining the advice of counsel or otherwise, that the intended disposition will not violate the Securities Act or any applicable state securities law. The Subscriber understands that any certificate or book entry representing the Securities may bear the following legend or one substantially similar thereto:
“THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, OR ANY OTHER APPLICABLE SECURITIES LAW, AND MAY NOT BE TRANSFERRED IN THE ABSENCE OF REGISTRATION THEREUNDER OR AN EXEMPTION THEREFROM.
THE SALE OR TRANSFER OF THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE IS SUBJECT TO RESTRICTIONS AS SET FORTH IN THE SUBSCRIPTION AGREEMENT BY AND BETWEEN THE COMPANY AND THE HOLDER OF THIS CERTIFICATE. COPIES OF SUCH AGREEMENT MAY BE OBTAINED UPON WRITTEN REQUEST TO THE SECRETARY OF THE COMPANY.”
(f) Economic Risk; Sophistication. The Subscriber acknowledges and recognizes that an investment in the Company involves a high degree of risk in that (i) the Subscriber may not be able to liquidate the investment, (ii) transferability may be extremely limited, (iii) there may be no market for the Securities when the Securities are able to be sold, and (iv) the Subscriber could sustain the loss of the entire investment or part of the investment.
(g) Ability to Bear Risk. The Subscriber is able to bear the economic risk of the Subscriber’s investment in the Securities for an indefinite period of time, including the risk of losing all of the Subscriber’s investment.
(h) Sophistication. The Subscriber, either alone or with the Subscriber’s representatives, has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters that the Subscriber is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of subscribing the Securities.
(i) Status After Investment. The Subscriber acknowledges and accepts that if the Subscriber purchases and/or accepts the Securities, the Subscriber will have only a minority interest in the Company with little, if any, control over the Company or its business.
(j) Responsibility for Determining Suitability of Investment. The Subscriber is assuming full responsibility independently (i) to determine whether an investment in the Securities is suitable for the Subscriber, (ii) to evaluate the Subscriber’s potential purchase and/or acceptance of the Securities, and (iii) to obtain, verify and evaluate all material information necessary or desired by the Subscriber to make the Subscriber’s decision, including, without limitation, information concerning the Company and its subsidiaries, their officers, directors, executives and employees, their related party transactions, their financial condition and needs, their business, their obligations, their shareholders and their rights, preferences and privileges and any potential issuance of additional securities.
(k) Accuracy of Information about the Subscriber. All information that the Subscriber has provided in this Agreement and the Investor Questionnaire, including, without limitation, information concerning the Subscriber and the Subscriber’s financial condition, is correct and complete as of the date of this Agreement, and if there should be any material change in such information before the acceptance of the Subscriber’s subscription for the Securities subscribed for under this Agreement, the Subscriber will promptly (not later than three (3) business days) so inform the Company.
(l) Authority; Binding Obligation; Valid Execution. The Subscriber (i) has the right, power and authority to execute (and the signatory is duly authorized to execute, on its behalf) this Agreement, (ii) it has the right, power and authority to perform the terms of, this Agreement, (iii) its state of organization is as set forth on the signature page, and (iv) it has been duly formed, is validly existing, and is in good standing in the state of its formation. This Agreement has been validly executed and delivered by the Subscriber and constitutes the legal, valid and binding agreement of the Subscriber, enforceable against the Subscriber in accordance with its terms, subject to bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium and similar laws of general application relating to creditors’ rights and to general equity principles.
(m) No Conflicts. The execution and delivery by the Subscriber of this Agreement do not and the consummation by the Subscriber of the transactions contemplated hereby will not (with or without the giving of notice or the lapse of time or both), contravene, conflict with or result in a breach or violation of, or a default under, (i) the Subscriber’s articles of incorporation or by-laws (or similar constitutive documents), (ii) any judgment, order, decree, statute, rule, regulation or other law applicable to the Subscriber or (iii) any contract, agreement or instrument by which the Subscriber is bound. No consent, approval, order or authorization of, or registration, declaration or filing with, any court, administrative agency or commission or other governmental authority or instrumentality, domestic or foreign, is required by or with respect to the Subscriber in connection with the execution and delivery by the Subscriber of this Agreement or the consummation by the Subscriber of the transactions contemplated hereby.
3. Representations, Warranties and Covenants of Company. The Company hereby represents, warrants and covenants to the Subscriber as follows:
(a) Organization. The Company is an exempted limited company duly formed, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of Bermuda.
(b) Authorization; Binding Obligation. The execution and delivery of this Agreement, and the consummation by the Company of the transactions contemplated hereby, have been duly authorized by all necessary Company action. This Agreement has been validly executed and delivered by the Company and constitutes the legal, valid and binding agreement of the Company, enforceable against the Company in accordance with its terms, subject to bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium and similar laws of general application relating to creditors’ rights and to general equity principles.
(c) Issuance of Securities. As promptly as practicable following the date of this Agreement, the Company shall instruct its transfer agent to issue the Securities to the Subscriber in book-entry form.
(d) Securities Duly Authorized. All of the Securities to be issued to the Subscriber pursuant to this Agreement, when issued and delivered in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, will be duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable and shall be free and clear of any liens, other than liens (if any) created (a) by or through Subscriber or any of Subscriber’s representatives, or (b) under or pursuant to applicable securities laws.
(e) No Conflicts. The execution and delivery by the Company of this Agreement do not and the consummation by the Company of the transactions contemplated hereby will not (with or without the giving of notice or the lapse of time or both), contravene, conflict with or result in a breach or violation of, or a default under, (i) the Company’s articles of incorporation or by-laws (or similar constitutive documents), (ii) any judgment, order, decree, statute, rule, regulation or other law applicable to the Company or (iii) any contract, agreement or instrument by which the Company is bound. No consent, approval, order or authorization of, or registration, declaration or filing with, any court, administrative agency or commission or other governmental authority or instrumentality, domestic or foreign, is required by or with respect to the Company in connection with the execution and delivery by the Company of this Agreement or the consummation by the Company of the transactions contemplated hereby.
(f) No General Solicitation. Neither the Company nor any person acting on its behalf has offered or sold the Securities to the Subscriber by any form of general solicitation or general advertising.
(g) Covenant to Remove Legends. Except in accordance with applicable laws and/or regulations, the Company agrees that it shall not place a legend restricting transfer on certificates representing the Securities (i) following any sale of such Securities pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act, (ii) following any sale of such Securities pursuant to Rule 144 under the Securities Act or (iii) if such shares are eligible for sale by the Subscriber under Rule 144 without volume limitation. In such event, the Company will, no later than three business days following the delivery to the Company or the Company’s transfer agent of the certificate or certificates representing such shares, deliver or cause to be delivered to the Subscriber a certificate or certificates that are free from all restrictive or other legends. The Subscriber shall be entitled to receive reimbursement from the Company for any costs and expenses (including attorney’s fees) incurred by the Subscriber in connection with the enforcement of the Subscriber’s rights under this paragraph.
(h) Other. There are no claims, actions, demands, lawsuits, arbitrations, litigations or proceedings of any nature pending or, to the Company’s knowledge, threatened against the Company, its property or assets or that seeks to prevent, enjoin otherwise delay the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, except any such claims, actions, demands, lawsuits, arbitrations, litigations or proceedings that would not reasonably be expected to have a material adverse effect with respect to the Company. The Company has complied with all laws applicable to it or its business, properties or assets, except where failure to obtain such consent, approval, authorization or action, or to make such filing or notification, would not, individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a material adverse effect with respect to the Company. There are no outstanding or unsatisfied judgments, orders, penalties or awards against or affecting the Company or any of its properties or assets that would materially adversely affect the Securities. Except as otherwise required by applicable laws and/or regulations, neither the Company, nor any of its subsidiaries or affiliates, is required to submit any notice, report or other filing with any Gaming Regulatory Authority in connection with the execution, delivery or performance by the Company of this Agreement or the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, and no consent, approval or authorization of any Gaming Regulatory Authority is required to be obtained by the Company or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates in connection with the Company’s execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement or the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby.
