|Original Issuance Date: [ ]
||Principal: U.S. $ |
FOR VALUE RECEIVED, AGENUS INC., a Delaware corporation (the Company), hereby promises to pay to the order of
[ ] or its registered assigns (Holder) the amount set out above as the Principal (as reduced pursuant to
the terms hereof pursuant to redemption, conversion or otherwise, the Principal) when due, whether upon the Maturity Date (as defined below), acceleration, redemption or otherwise (in each case, in accordance with the terms
hereof) and to pay interest (Interest) on any outstanding Principal at the Interest Rate, from the date set out above as the Original Issuance Date (the Issuance Date) until the same becomes due and payable,
whether upon an Interest Date (as defined below) or the Maturity Date, acceleration, conversion, redemption or otherwise (in each case in accordance with the terms hereof). This Senior Secured Convertible Note (including all Senior Secured
Convertible Notes issued in exchange, transfer or replacement hereof, this Note) is one of an issue of Senior Secured Convertible Notes issued pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement (as defined below) (collectively, the
Notes and such other Senior Secured Convertible Notes, the Other Notes). Certain capitalized terms used herein are defined in Section 29.
(1) INTEREST; INTEREST RATE. Interest on this Note shall commence accruing on the Issuance Date and shall be computed on the basis
of a 360-day year of twelve 30-day months from the actual number of days elapsed and shall be payable in arrears for each Interest Period on the last day of the applicable Interest Period during the period beginning on the Issuance Date and ending,
subject to earlier acceleration, redemption or conversion, on, and including, the Maturity Date (even if the Maturity Date is not the last day of an Interest Period)
(each, an Interest Date) with the first Interest Date being
[ ]. Interest shall be payable on each Interest Date to the record holder of this Note on the applicable Interest Date in
cash (Cash Interest) or, at the option of the Company may be paid in kind notes in the form of Exhibit B to the Securities Purchase Agreement (PIK Notes) or a combination thereof,
provided that the Interest which accrued during any period will be payable in PIK Notes unless the Company delivers written notice (each a Cash Election Notice) of such election to each holder of the Notes on or
prior to the twentieth (20th) Company Trading Day
prior to the Interest Date (each, an Interest Election Date). Each Cash Election Notice must specify the amount of Interest that shall be paid as Cash Interest, if any, and the amount of Interest that shall be paid
in PIK Notes. If the Company elects to pay in PIK Notes, such PIK Notes shall be issued to the record holder of the Note within twenty (20) days after the Interest Date. Prior to the payment of Interest on an Interest Date, Interest on this
Note shall accrue at the Interest Rate and be payable by way of inclusion of the Interest in the Conversion Amount (as defined below) in accordance with Section 2(b)(i).
(2) CONVERSION OF NOTES. This Note shall be convertible into Antigenics MA Stock, on the terms and conditions set forth in this Section 2.
(a) Conversion Right. At any time or times on or after the Issuance Date, the Holder shall be entitled to convert any portion of
the outstanding and unpaid Conversion Amount in multiples of $10,000 (or, if less, any remaining Conversion Amount) into Antigenics MA Stock, at the Antigenics MA Conversion Rate (as defined below). The Company shall not issue any fraction of a
share of Antigenics MA Stock upon any conversion. If the issuance would result in the issuance of a fraction of a share of Antigenics MA Stock, the Company shall round such fraction of a share of Antigenics MA Stock up to the nearest whole share.
The Company shall pay any and all taxes that may be payable with respect to the issuance and delivery of Antigenics MA Stock upon conversion of any Conversion Amount; provided that the Company shall not be required to pay any tax that may be
payable in respect of any transfer involved in the issue and delivery of Antigenics MA Stock to any Person other than the Holder or with respect to any income tax due by the Holder with respect to such Antigenics MA Stock issued upon conversion.
(c) Antigenics MA Stock Conversion Rate. The number of shares of Antigenics MA Stock issuable upon conversion of any Conversion Amount pursuant to Section 2(a) (the Antigenics MA
Conversion) shall be equal to the number of shares constituting x% of the total shares of Antigenics MA stock, where x is calculated by dividing the Conversion Amount by $833,333.00. To convert any Conversion Amount into shares of
Antigenics MA Stock on any date (an Antigenics MA Conversion Date), the Holder shall give the Company ninety (90) days prior written notice (the Antigenics MA Stock Conversion
Notice) transmitted by facsimile (or otherwise deliver).
(d) Company Buyout Right. Notwithstanding
anything in this Section 2 to the contrary, upon receipt of a Antigenics MA Stock Conversion Notice, the Company shall have the right to redeem the Notes subject to the Antigenics MA Stock Conversion Notice (the Company Buyout
Right) at a price equal to the value of the Conversion Amount plus an amount, when taken together with any Cash Interest payments made prior to the exercise of the
- 2 -
Company Buyout Right, that would generate an annual internal rate of return to the Holder of thirty percent (30%) in respect of the Principal. The Company shall have sixty (60) days,
following receipt of the Antigenics MA Stock Conversion Notice to give notice of its decision to exercise the Company Buyout Right.
(e) Mechanics of Stock Conversion.
||Book-Entry. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth herein, upon conversion of any portion of this Note in accordance with the terms hereof, the
Holder shall not be required to physically surrender this Note to the Company unless (A) the full Conversion Amount represented by this Note is being converted or (B) the Holder has provided the Company with prior written notice (which
notice may be included in the Antigenics MA Stock Conversion Notice) requesting reissuance of this Note upon physical surrender of this Note. The Holder and the Company shall maintain records showing the Principal and Interest converted and the
dates of such conversions or shall use such other method, reasonably satisfactory to the Holder and the Company, so as not to require physical surrender of this Note upon conversion. |
(f) Payment of Principal at Maturity; Company Election. On the Maturity Date, the Company shall pay to the Holder the sum of the
Principal and accrued and unpaid Interest (Unpaid Principal Amount) in same day funds; provided, however, that if the Company has satisfied the Company Election Conversion Condition (as defined below), the Company
may elect to pay such Unpaid Principal Amount by converting such Unpaid Principal Amount into the number of shares of the Companys common stock, par value $.01 per share (the Company Common Stock) equal to the amount of such
Unpaid Principal Amount divided by the ninety percent (90%) of the Weighted Average Price of Company Common Stock during the prior twenty (20) Company Trading Days preceding the Company Election Date (a Company Election
Conversion). If a Company Election Conversion occurs, the Company and the Holder shall follow the procedures for Conversion set forth in this Section 2. The Company Election Conversion Condition
means that the average equity market capitalization for the Company calculated based on the closing prices for the shares of Company Common Stock during the twenty (20) Company Trading Days preceding the Maturity Date, shall be greater than
$300,000,000 on a fully diluted basis.
(g) Limitations on Conversions.
Beneficial Ownership. The Company shall not effect any conversion of this Note pursuant to this Section 2 or otherwise, to the extent that
after giving effect to such conversion, the Holder (together with the Holders affiliates), would beneficially own in excess of 9.99% (the Maximum Percentage) of the number of shares of Company Common Stock
outstanding immediately after giving effect to such conversion. For purposes of the foregoing sentence, the number of shares of Company Common Stock beneficially owned by the Holder and its affiliates shall include the number of shares of Company
Common Stock issuable upon conversion of this Note with respect to which the determination of such sentence is being made, but shall exclude the number of shares of Company Common Stock which would be issuable upon (A) conversion of the
- 3 -
nonconverted portion of this Note beneficially owned by the Holder or any of its affiliates and (B) exercise or conversion of the unexercised or nonconverted portion of any other securities
of the Company (including, without limitation, any Other Notes or warrants) subject to a limitation on conversion or exercise analogous to the limitation contained herein beneficially owned by the Holder or any of its affiliates. Except as set forth
in the preceding sentence, for purposes of this Section 2(g)(i), beneficial ownership shall be calculated in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the 1934 Act).
For purposes of this Section 2(g)(i), in determining the number of outstanding shares of Company Common Stock, the Holder may rely on the number of outstanding shares of Company Common Stock as reflected in (x) the Companys most
recent Form 10-Q or Form 10-K, as the case may be, (y) a more recent public announcement by the Company or (z) any other more recent notice from the Company or the Transfer Agent setting forth the number of shares of Company Common Stock
outstanding. For any reason at any time, upon the written or oral request of the Holder, the Company shall within three (3) Business Days confirm orally and in writing to the Holder the number of shares of Company Common Stock then outstanding.
In any case, the number of outstanding shares of Company Common Stock shall be determined after giving effect to the conversion or exercise of securities of the Company, including this Note, by the Holder or its affiliates since the date as of which
such number of outstanding shares of Company Common Stock was reported.
Principal Market Regulation. The Company shall not issue any shares of Company Common Stock upon conversion of this Note, whether pursuant to
this Section 2 or otherwise, if the issuance of such shares of Company Common Stock would exceed the aggregate number of shares of Company Common Stock which the Company may issue upon conversion or exercise of the Notes without breaching the
Companys obligations under the rules or regulations of the Principal Market (the Exchange Cap), except that such limitation shall not apply in the event that the Company (A) obtains the approval of its stockholders as
required by the applicable rules of the Principal Market for issuances of Company Common Stock in excess of such amount, regardless of whether or not the shares of Company Common Stock are then listed on the applicable market or (B) obtains a
written opinion from outside counsel to the Company that such approval is not required, which opinion shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Required Holders. In the event the Company is unable to obtain a written opinion pursuant to
Section 2(g)(ii)(A), the Company shall use its reasonable best efforts to obtain stockholder approval. Until such approval or written opinion is obtained, no purchaser of the Notes pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement (the
Purchasers) shall be issued in the aggregate, upon conversion of Notes, shares of Company Common Stock in an amount greater than the product of the Exchange Cap multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the principal
amount of Notes issued to such Purchaser pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement on the Closing Date and the denominator of which is the aggregate principal amount of all Notes issued to the Purchasers pursuant to the Securities Purchase
Agreement on the Closing Date (with respect to each Purchaser, the Exchange Cap Allocation). In the event that any Purchaser
- 4 -
shall sell or otherwise transfer any of such Purchasers Notes, the transferee shall be allocated a pro rata portion of such Purchasers Exchange Cap Allocation, and the restrictions of
the prior sentence shall apply to such transferee with respect to the portion of the Exchange Cap Allocation allocated to such transferee. In the event that any holder of Notes shall convert all of such holders Notes into a number of shares of
Company Common Stock which, in the aggregate, is less than such holders Exchange Cap Allocation, then the difference between such holders Exchange Cap Allocation and the number of shares of Company Common Stock actually issued to such
holder shall be allocated to the respective Exchange Cap Allocations of the remaining holders of Notes on a pro rata basis in proportion to the aggregate principal amount of the Notes then held by each such holder.
(h) Notwithstanding anything in the above provisions to the contrary, if the Holder exercises any of its rights under the Pledge and
Security Agreement in Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code then it shall no longer have the right to convert its shares into Antigenics MA Stock.
(4) RIGHTS UPON EVENT OF DEFAULT.
(a) Event of Default. Each of the following events (so long as its continuing) shall constitute an Event of
||the Companys failure to pay to the Holder any amount of Principal or Interest except, in the case of a failure to pay Interest only if such failure continues for
a period of at least five (5) Business Days; |
||any default under, redemption of or acceleration prior to maturity of any Indebtedness (as defined in the Securities Purchase Agreement) of the Company aggregating in
excess of $1,000,000; |
||the Company pursuant to or within the meaning of Title 11, U.S. Code, or any similar Federal, foreign or state law for the relief of debtors (collectively,
Bankruptcy Law), (A) commences a voluntary case, (B) has an involuntary case filed against it and such case is not dismissed within thirty (30) days, (C) consents to the appointment of a receiver, trustee,
assignee, liquidator or similar official, or (D) makes a general assignment for the benefit of its creditors; |
||a final judgment or judgments for the payment of money aggregating in excess of $1,000,000 are rendered against the Company and which judgment or judgments are not,
within sixty (60) days after the entry thereof, bonded, discharged or stayed pending appeal, or are not discharged within sixty (60) days after the expiration of such stay; provided, however, that any judgment which is covered by insurance
or an indemnity from a credit worthy party shall not be included in calculating the $1,000,000 amount set forth above; |
- 5 -
||the Company breaches any representation or warranty in this Note or makes a misleading representation or warranty which results in a material adverse effect on the
financial condition of the Company; |
||the Company breaches, in any material respect, a covenant or agreement in this Note which remains uncured after notice for a period of at least thirty
(30) consecutive days.; or |
||the Company ceases to operate. |
(b) Redemption Right. Promptly after the occurrence of an Event of Default, the Company shall deliver written notice thereof via
facsimile and overnight courier (an Event of Default Notice) to the Holder. At any time after the earlier of the Holders receipt of an Event of Default Notice and the Holder becoming aware of an Event of Default and prior to
90 days after written notice from the Company to the Holder that such Event of Default is cured (which written notice shall provide reasonably satisfactory evidence that such Event of Default has actually been cured), the Holder may require the
Company to redeem all or any portion of this Note by delivering written notice thereof (the Event of Default Redemption Notice) to the Company, which Event of Default Redemption Notice shall indicate the portion of this Note that
the Holder is electing to redeem. Each portion of this Note subject to redemption by the Company pursuant to this Section 4(b) shall be redeemed by the Company at a price equal to the Conversion Amount to be redeemed (the Event of
Default Redemption Price). Redemptions required by this Section 4(b) shall be made in accordance with the provisions of Section 10.
(5) RIGHTS UPON FUNDAMENTAL TRANSACTION AND CHANGE OF CONTROL.
Assumption. Without limiting any rights of the Holder pursuant to paragraph (b) below, the Company shall not enter into or be party to a Fundamental Transaction unless (i) the Successor Entity assumes in writing all of the
obligations of the Company under this Note in accordance with the provisions of this Section 5(a) pursuant to a written agreement prior to such Fundamental Transaction, including an undertaking to deliver to the Holder in exchange for this Note
a security of the Successor Entity evidenced by a written instrument substantially similar in form and substance to the Notes, including, without limitation, having a principal amount and interest rate equal to the principal amounts and the interest
rate of this Note and (ii) the Successor Entity (including its Parent Entity) is a publicly traded corporation whose common stock is quoted on or listed for trading on an Eligible Market. Upon the occurrence of any Fundamental Transaction, the
Successor Entity shall succeed to, and be substituted for (so that from and after the date of such Fundamental Transaction, the provisions of this Note referring to the Company shall refer instead to the Successor Entity), and may
exercise every right and power of the Company and shall assume all of the obligations of the Company under this Note with the same effect as if such Successor Entity had been named as the Company herein. Upon consummation of the Fundamental
Transaction, the Successor Entity shall deliver to the Holder confirmation that there shall be issued upon conversion or redemption of this Note at any time after the consummation of the Fundamental Transaction, in lieu of the shares of the
securities, cash, assets or other property purchasable upon the conversion or redemption of the Notes prior to such Fundamental Transaction, such shares of stock, securities, cash, assets or any other property whatsoever (including warrants or other
purchase or subscription rights) which the
- 6 -
Holder would have been entitled to receive upon the happening of such Fundamental Transaction had this Note been converted immediately prior to such Fundamental Transaction, as adjusted in
accordance with the provisions of this Note. The provisions of this Section shall apply similarly and equally to successive Fundamental Transactions and shall be applied without regard to any limitations on the conversion or redemption of this Note.
(b) Holder Redemption Right. No sooner than fifteen (15) Business Days nor later than ten (10) Business Days
prior to the consummation of a Change of Control, but not prior to the public announcement of such Change of Control, the Company shall deliver written notice thereof via facsimile and overnight courier to the Holder (a Change of
Control Notice). At any time during the period beginning after the Holders receipt of a Change of Control Notice and ending on the date of the consummation of such Change of Control (or, in the event a Change of Control Notice
is not delivered at least ten (10) Business Days prior to consummation of such Change of Control, at any time on or after the date which is ten (10) Business Days prior to a Change of Control and ending ten (10) Business Days after
the consummation of such Change of Control), the Holder may require the Company to redeem all or any portion of this Note by delivering written notice thereof (Holder Change of Control Redemption Notice) to the
Company, which Holder Change of Control Redemption Notice shall indicate the Conversion Amount the Holder is electing to redeem. The portion of this Note subject to redemption pursuant to this Section 5 shall be redeemed by the Company at a
price equal to 101% of the Conversion Amount being redeemed (the Holder Change of Control Redemption Price). Redemptions required by this Section 5(b) shall be made in accordance with the provisions of
Section 10 and shall have priority to payments to stockholders in connection with a Change of Control.
(6) RIGHT OF
(a) Equity Offering. If the Company sells, at any time up to the Maturity Date, an equity interest
in Antigenics MA (Equity Offering), the Holder shall have a right of first refusal (which shall be transferable to affiliates of the Holder and to a purchaser of this Note and automatically transferred with this Note
while this Note is outstanding) to purchase Holders pro rata share (in proportion to the principal amount this Note represents to the aggregate principal amount of all the Notes) of up to 50% of such Equity Offering on the same terms as the
third party purchaser, including without limitation any preemptive rights in connection with any subsequent offering or sales. In the event that this Note is redeemed prior to the Maturity Date (the Redemption Date),
this right of first refusal shall survive for the benefit of the entity holding this Note at the time of redemption until the Maturity Date, and after the Redemption Date, such right shall be assignable, in whole or in part, other than to a
competitor of GSK, based on the pro rata ownership of the Notes at the time of redemption; provided, however, that no such transfer shall be effected unless the transferee would have the right to purchase at least 10% of the transferors right
to participate in such Equity Offering.
(b) Offer. The Company shall deliver to the Holder written notice of an Equity
Offering, specifying the price and terms and conditions of a proposed Equity Offering. Unless the Company determines not to consummate such Equity Offering, the Holder shall have a period of ten (10) Business Days from the date of the notice
from the Company (the 10-Day Period) to irrevocable determine whether to exercise this right.
- 7 -
(c) Notice of Acceptance. Holder shall evidence its intention to accept the Offer by
delivering a written notice setting forth the equity interest, subject to Section 6(a) above, that it elects to purchase (the Notice of Acceptance). The Notice of Acceptance must be delivered to the Company
prior to the end of the 10-day Period.
(d) Purchase of Shares. If the Holder tenders its Notice of Acceptance prior to
the end of the 10-day Period indicating its intention to purchase its pro rata share of the Equity Offering, the Company shall schedule a closing. Upon the closing of the sale of the Equity Offering to be purchased by the holders, the Holder shall
(i) purchase from the Company that portion of the Equity Offering for which it tendered a Notice of Acceptance upon the terms specified in the Offer, and (ii) execute and deliver an agreement further restricting transfer of such Equity
Offering. The obligation of any Holder to purchase such Equity Offering is further conditioned upon the preparation of a purchase agreement embodying the terms of the Equity Offering, which shall be reasonably satisfactory in form and substance to
the participating Holders.
(8) NONCIRCUMVENTION. The Company hereby covenants and agrees that the Company will not, by amendment of its Certificate of Incorporation, Bylaws or through any reorganization, transfer of assets,
consolidation, merger, scheme of arrangement, dissolution, issue or sale of securities, or any other voluntary action, avoid or seek to avoid the observance or performance of any of the terms of this Note, and will at all times in good faith carry

(10) HOLDERS REDEMPTIONS.
(a) Mechanics. The Company shall
deliver the applicable Event of Default Redemption Price to the Holder within five (5) Business Days after the Companys receipt of the Holders valid Event of Default Redemption Notice. If the Holder has submitted a Holder Change of
Control Redemption Notice in accordance with Section 5(b), the Company shall deliver the Holder Change of Control Redemption Price to the Holder, concurrently with the consummation of such Change of Control if such notice is received by the
Company prior to the consummation of such Change of Control and within five (5) Business Days after the Companys receipt of such notice otherwise. In the event of a redemption of less than all of the Conversion Amount of this Note, the
Company shall promptly cause to be issued and delivered to the Holder (after such original Note has been delivered to the Company) a new Note (in accordance with Section 17(d)) representing the outstanding Principal which has not been redeemed.
In the event that the Company does not pay the applicable Redemption Price to the Holder within the time period required, at any time thereafter and until the Company pays such unpaid Redemption Price in full, the Holder shall have the option, in
lieu of redemption, to require the Company to promptly return to the Holder all or any portion of this Note representing the Conversion Amount that was submitted for redemption and for which the applicable Redemption Price has not been paid. Upon
the Companys receipt of such notice, (x) the Redemption Notice shall be null and void with respect to such Conversion Amount and (y) the Company shall immediately return this Note, or issue a new Note (in accordance with
Section 17(d)) to the Holder representing such Conversion Amount.
- 8 -

of the holders of the Other Notes for redemption or repayment as a result of an event or occurrence substantially similar to the events or occurrences described in Section 4(b) or Section 5(b) (each, an Other Redemption
Notice), the Company shall immediately forward to the Holder by facsimile a copy of such notice. If the Company receives a Redemption Notice and one or more Other Redemption Notices during the seven (7) Business Day period beginning
on and including the date which is three (3) Business Days prior to the Companys receipt of the Holders Redemption Notice and ending on and including the date which is three (3) Business Days after the Companys receipt of
the Holders Redemption Notice and the Company is unable to redeem all principal, interest and other amounts designated in such Redemption Notice and such Other Redemption Notices received during such seven (7) Business Day period, then
the Company shall redeem a pro rata amount from each holder of the Notes (including the Holder) based on the principal amount of the Notes submitted for redemption pursuant to such Redemption Notice and such Other Redemption Notices received by the
Company during such seven Business Day period.
