THIS TERMINATION OF FORWARD SHARE PURCHASE AGREEMENT (this “Agreement”) is made as of June 29, 2023 (the “Effective Date”), by and among (i) AGBA Group Holding Limited, a British Virgin Islands business company (the “Company”) (as successor-in-interest to AGBA Acquisition Limited, a British Virgin Islands business company) (“AGBA”), (ii) TAG International Limited, a British Virgin Islands business company, TAG Asset Partners Limited, a British Virgin Islands business company and a wholly owned subsidiary of TAG International Limited, OnePlatform International Limited, a Hong Kong company, TAG Asia Capital Holdings Limited, a British Virgin Islands business company, and TAG Holdings Limited, a British Virgin Islands business company (collectively, “Targets”), (iii) Meteora Special Opportunity Fund I, LP, a Delaware limited partnership (“MSOF”), (iv) Meteora Select Trading Opportunities Master, LP, a Cayman Islands limited partnership (“MSTO”) and (v) Meteora Capital Partners, LP, a Delaware limited partnership (“MCP” and together with MSOF and MSTO, each individually an “Investor” and collectively, the “Investors”). Each of Company, Targets, MSOF, MSTO, and MCP is individually referred to herein as a “Party” and collectively as the “Parties”.

 

WHEREAS, AGBA, Targets and Investors are parties to that certain Forward Share Purchase Agreement, dated November 9, 2022 (as amended, the “FSPA”);

WHEREAS, the Investors currently hold an aggregate of 124,949 ordinary shares, par value $0.0001 per share (“Ordinary Shares”), of the Company acquired pursuant to the FSPA, consisting of 25,870 Commitment Shares and 99,079 Puttable Shares (collectively the “Shares”).

 

NOW, THEREFORE, for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the Parties hereby agree as follows:

 

1. Shares Disposal.

2. Fees Due. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in the FSPA, the Parties hereby agree that the execution of this Agreement shall accelerate the Put Date as provided in Section 5(b) of the FSPA and the Escrowed Funds held in the Escrow Account shall be released by the Escrow Agent (in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Escrow Agreement) to the Company and Investors according to what each Party is respectively owed pursuant to the terms and conditions of the FSPA.

(d) The execution, delivery and performance by each Investor of this Agreement and the consummation by each such Investor of the transactions contemplated hereby will not result in any violation or default (i) of any provisions of its organizational documents, (ii) of any instrument, judgment, order, writ or decree to which it is a party or by which it is bound, (iii) under any note, indenture or mortgage to which it is a party or by which it is bound, (iv) under any lease, agreement, contract or purchase order to which it is a party or by which it is bound, or (v) of any provision of federal or state statute, rule or regulation applicable to it, in each case (other than clause (i)), which would have a material adverse effect on such Investor or its ability to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby.

2

 

 

(d) Successors. All of the terms, agreements, covenants, representations, warranties, and conditions of this Agreement are binding upon, and inure to the benefit of and are enforceable by, the Parties and their respective successors.

(e) Assignments. Except as otherwise specifically provided herein, no Party may assign either this Agreement or any of its rights, interests, or obligations hereunder without the prior written approval of the each of the other Parties.

 

(f) Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in two or more counterparts, each of which will be deemed an original but all of which together will constitute one and the same instrument.

(i) MUTUAL WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. EACH PARTY TO THIS AGREEMENT HEREBY WAIVES ALL RIGHTS TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION, SUIT, OR PROCEEDING BROUGHT TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN OR AMONG ANY OF THE PARTIES HERETO, WHETHER ARISING IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE, ARISING OUT OF, CONNECTED WITH, RELATED OR INCIDENTAL TO THIS AGREEMENT AND/OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY.

 

(j) Amendments. This Agreement may not be amended, modified or waived as to any particular provision, except with the prior written consent of all Parties.

 

(k) Severability. The provisions of this Agreement will be deemed severable and the invalidity or unenforceability of any provision will not affect the validity or enforceability of the other provisions hereof; provided that if any provision of this Agreement, as applied to any Party or to any circumstance, is adjudged by a governmental authority, arbitrator, or mediator not to be enforceable in accordance with its terms, the Parties agree that the governmental authority, arbitrator, or mediator making such determination will have the power to modify the provision in a manner consistent with its objectives such that it is enforceable, and/or to delete specific words or phrases, and in its reduced form, such provision will then be enforceable and will be enforced.

 

(l) Construction. The Parties have participated jointly in the negotiation and drafting of this Agreement. If an ambiguity or question of intent or interpretation arises, this Agreement will be construed as if drafted jointly by the Parties and no presumption or burden of proof will arise favoring or disfavoring any Party because of the authorship of any provision of this Agreement. For purposes of this Agreement, “Business Day” means any day other than Saturday, Sunday, or a day on which commercial banks in New York are obligated by any applicable law to close. Any reference to any federal, state, local, or foreign law will be deemed also to refer to law as amended and all rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, unless the context requires otherwise. The words “include,” “includes,” and “including” will be deemed to be followed by “without limitation.” Pronouns in masculine, feminine, and neuter genders will be construed to include any other gender, and words in the singular form will be construed to include the plural and vice versa, unless the context otherwise requires. The words “this Agreement,” “herein,” “hereof,” “hereby,” “hereunder,” and words of similar import refer to this Agreement as a whole and not to any particular subdivision unless expressly so limited. The Parties intend that each representation, warranty, and covenant contained herein will have independent significance. If a Party has breached any representation, warranty, or covenant contained herein in any respect, the fact that there exists another representation, warranty or covenant relating to the same subject matter (regardless of the relative levels of specificity) which such party has not breached will not detract from or mitigate the fact that such party is in breach of the first representation, warranty, or covenant.

 

(m) Waiver. No waiver by a Party of any default, misrepresentation, or breach of warranty or covenant hereunder, whether intentional or not, may be deemed to extend to any prior or subsequent default, misrepresentation, or breach of warranty or covenant hereunder or affect in any way any rights arising because of any prior or subsequent occurrence.

 

(n) Specific Performance. Each Party agrees that irreparable damage may occur in the event any provision of this Agreement was not performed by any other Party in accordance with the terms hereof and that the other Parties shall be entitled to seek specific performance of the terms hereof, in addition to any other remedy at law or equity.

 

(o) Further Assurances. In the event that at any time after the execution of this Agreement any further action is necessary or desirable to carry out or evidence the purposes of this Agreement, each of the Parties will take (and, in the case of the Investors, will cause their respective affiliated Investors to take) such further action (including the execution and delivery of such further instruments and documents) as any other Party reasonably may request.

 

(p) Security Interests. Each Investor, on behalf of itself and its affiliated Investors, authorizes the Company and its designees only following the final disposition of the Escrowed Funds by the Escrow Agent in accordance with the terms of the FSPA and the Escrow Agreement, to file on behalf of such Investor (at the Company’s sole cost and expense) all terminations, releases and other documents reasonably required to release and terminate all liens and security interests of such Investor the Escrow Account or the funds therein. Each Investor shall cooperate with the Company to prepare and deliver any documents as requested by the Escrow Agent in connection with the release of the Escrowed Funds from the Escrow Account to the Investors and the Company as provided in Section 2 above, and, to the extent necessary in accordance with the terms of the Escrow Agreement, the termination of the Escrow Agreement.
