Stockholder Agreement - Iggys House Inc., Gregg Shanberg and Ellen Shanberg
This Stockholder Agreement (this "Agreement") is entered into as of May , 2007, among Iggys House, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the "Company") and Gregg Shanberg and Ellen Shanberg (collectively, the "Stockholder").
A. As of the date hereof, the Company is issuing to Stockholder shares of common stock of the Company, pursuant to a separate Subscription Agreement.
B. On or about the date hereof, the Company is issuing to Gregg Shanberg an option to purchase 500,000 shares of common stock of the Company (the "May 2007 Option").
C. The Company would not be willing to issue such stock or grant the May 2007 Option unless Stockholder agreed to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Stockholder is executing this Agreement in order to induce the Company to issue such stock and grant such option.
NOW THEREFORE for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties agree as follows:
1. Restrictions on Transfer of Stock.
(a) No Holder shall, directly or indirectly, Transfer any Stock in a manner that violates the provisions of this Agreement or any applicable securities laws. Any Transfer of shares of Stock in violation of this Agreement shall be null and void.
(b) Except for any Transfer in or after an IPO permitted by Section 2, no Holder shall directly or indirectly Transfer any shares of Stock: (i) prior to the fourth anniversary of the date hereof; or (ii) to a competitor of the Company. The Board's good faith, reasonable determination of whether a person is a competitor of the Company shall be binding and conclusive.
(c) No Holder shall Transfer any shares of Stock if such Transfer would require the Company to register any class of its securities under the 1934 Act.
(d) Except for a public sale to the extent permitted under Section 2 in or after an IPO, no Holder shall Transfer any shares of Stock unless, on or prior to such Transfer: (i) the transferee executes and delivers to the Company a Joinder substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A and becomes bound by all the terms of this Agreement; (ii) if the transferee is married, the transferee's spouse executes and delivers a Consent of Spouse substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B and (iii) the transferor furnishes to the Company an opinion of counsel (in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Company) that such Transfer may be made without registration under applicable securities laws.
(e) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein: (i) any restriction on Transfer set forth in this Section 1 may be waived by the Board, in its sole discretion; and (ii) any restriction on Transfer set forth in Section 2 of this Agreement may be waived by AFJ, in its sole discretion.
2. Transfer After an IPO.
(a) During the four year period starting on (and including) the IPO and ending on the fourth anniversary thereof, any Transfer of Stock is prohibited to the extent that, immediately following such Transfer, the cumulative percentage of Stock Transferred in or after the IPO would exceed the AFJ Percentage. "AFJ Percentage", as of any specified time, means the percentage of AFJ's Shares sold by AFJ in or after the IPO up to and including the specified time. For purposes of this Section 2: (i) in the event of any forward or reverse stock split, stock dividend, stock combination, recapitalization or
similar transaction involving the Company's capital stock, the Board shall make an equitable adjustment to the percentages contemplated by this Section 2, which adjustment shall be binding and conclusive on the parties hereto, any Holders and AFJ; (ii) the cumulative percentage of Stock Transferred in or after the IPO shall be calculated by dividing (A) the cumulative total number of shares of Stock sold in or after the IPO by (B) the number of shares of Stock outstanding as of immediately prior to the IPO, and (iii) the AFJ Percentage shall be calculated by dividing (A) the total number of Shares sold by AFJ in or after the IPO by (B) the number of outstanding Shares owned by AFJ as of immediately prior to the IPO. The following examples are by way of illustration and not of limitation. For example, if 2% of the Stock were Transferred in the IPO and 2% of the Stock were Transferred after the IPO, then the cumulative percentage of Stock Transferred in or after the IPO would be 4%, regardless of whether the same Holder(s) were involved in the transfers. For example, if 100 shares of Stock were outstanding immediately before the IPO, no shares of Stock were sold in the IPO, and 5 shares of Stock were sold after the IPO, then, as of immediately after the sale of such 5 shares, the cumulative percentage of Stock Transferred in or after the IPO would be 5%.
(b) Without limitation of the Company's rights, AFJ shall have the right to enforce this Section 2 as if AFJ were a party hereto.
3. After-Acquired Shares.
(a) For greater certainty, if any shares of capital stock or other equity securities are issued or issuable from time to time with respect to any Shares of Stock, such securities shall constitute Stock that is subject to this Agreement.
(b) For greater certainty, this Agreement shall continue to apply to shares of Stock after such shares have been Transferred, except that this Agreement shall not apply to any Shares to the extent sold in a public sale in accordance with Section 2 in or after an Initial Public Offering.
4. Termination. This Agreement shall terminate upon the earliest to occur of:
(a) immediately after the consummation of a Change of Control;
(b) forty nine months after the consummation of an Initial Public Offering;
(c) upon two days prior written notice given by the Company to the Holders (at their address as shown in the Company's records); or
(d) upon mutual agreement of the Company and Holders holding a majority of the then outstanding shares of Stock subject to the provisions of this Agreement.
A termination of this Agreement shall not affect any liability for any violation of this Agreement prior to such termination.

6. Lockup. If the Company makes an initial public offering of its shares (an "IPO"), then no Holder shall sell or otherwise transfer in any manner (or offer or agree to sell or otherwise transfer in any manner), directly or indirectly, any shares of Stock (or any interest therein) during the Lockup Period, without the prior written permission of the lead underwriter for the IPO.

Prior to the IPO, if requested by the Company, each Holder of shares of Stock shall execute and deliver a customary form of "lockup" agreement restricting the transfer of such shares during the Lockup Period. Such lockup agreement shall be in form and substance satisfactory to the lead underwriter for the IPO in its sole discretion. If, prior to the IPO, any shares of Stock are transferred, then the transferor of such shares shall (i) cause the transferee to agree to be bound by this Agreement pursuant to a written joinder signed by the transferee in form and substance satisfactory to the Company in its sole discretion, and (ii) deliver such signed joinder to the Company at or before the time of such transfer. Any transfer of shares in violation of the preceding sentence shall be null and void.
7. Miscellaneous. The restrictions on Transfer set forth in this Agreement are in addition to, and not in limitation of, any other restriction on transfer set forth in any other agreement. This Agreement shall be governed by the substantive law of the State of Delaware, without application of any conflict of laws principle that would require the application of the law of any other jurisdiction. Any dispute arising under this Agreement shall be submitted to a Federal or State court located in Cook County, Illinois. The parties shall not object to venue in such a court. This Agreement shall be binding upon, and inure to the benefit of, the successors, permitted assigns, personal representatives, heirs and legatees of the parties hereto. If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect by any court, then such provision shall be stricken from this Agreement, and the remainder of this Agreement shall not be affected, it being intended that this Agreement shall be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law. As used in this Agreement, "including" means including without limitation.
