4.1.    Effect of Merger on Capital Stock.    At the Effective Time, as a result of the Reincorporation Merger and without any action on the part of the Company, Blue or the shareholders of the Company:

 

(a)   Each share of common stock (other than shares (“Dissenting Shares”) that are owned by shareholders (“Dissenting Shareholders”) exercising dissenters’ rights pursuant to Article 113 of the CBCA), issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be converted (without the surrender of stock certificates or any other action) into one fully paid and non-assessable share of common stock, par value $0.01, of Blue (“Delaware common stock”), with the

 



 

same rights, powers and privileges as the shares so converted and all shares of common stock shall be cancelled and retired and shall cease to exist.

 

(b)   Each option, warrant or other security of the Company issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be (i) converted into and shall be an identical security of Blue, and (ii) in the case of securities to acquire common stock, converted into the right to acquire the same number of shares of Delaware common stock as the number of shares of common stock that were acquirable pursuant to such option, warrant or other security. The same number of shares of Delaware common stock shall be reserved for purposes of the exercise of such options, warrants or other securities as is equal to the number of shares of the common stock so reserved as of the Effective Time.

 

(d)   Each share of Delaware common stock owned by the Company shall no longer be outstanding and shall be cancelled and retired and shall cease to exist.

 

4.2.    Certificates.    At and after the Effective Time, all of the outstanding certificates which immediately prior thereto represented shares of common stock (other than Dissenting Shares), options, warrants or other securities of the Company shall be deemed for all purposes to evidence ownership of and to represent the shares of the respective Delaware common stock, options, warrants or other securities of Blue, as the case may be, into which the shares of common stock, options, warrants or other securities of the Company represented by such certificates have been converted as herein provided and shall be so registered on the books and records of the Surviving Corporation or its transfer agent. The registered owner of any such outstanding certificate shall, until such certificate shall have been surrendered for transfer or otherwise accounted for to the Surviving Corporation or its transfer agent, have and be entitled to exercise any voting and other rights with respect to, and to receive any dividends and other distributions upon, the shares of Delaware common stock, options, warrants or other securities of Blue, as the case may be, evidenced by such outstanding certificate, as above provided.

 

4.3    Dissenters’ Rights.    No Dissenting Shareholder shall be entitled to shares of Delaware common stock under this Article IV unless and until the holder thereof shall have failed to perfect or shall have effectively withdrawn or lost such holder’s right to dissent from the Reincorporation Merger under the CBCA, and any Dissenting Shareholder shall be entitled to receive only the payment provided by Article 113 of the CBCA with respect to Dissenting Shares owned by such Dissenting Shareholder. If any person or entity who otherwise would be deemed a Dissenting Shareholder shall have failed to properly perfect or shall have effectively withdrawn or lost the right to dissent with respect to any shares which would be Dissenting Shares but for that failure to perfect or withdrawal or loss of the right to dissent, such Dissenting Shares shall thereupon be treated as though such Dissenting Shares had been converted into shares of Delaware common stock pursuant to Section 4.1 hereof.
