SUCH SECURITIES MAY NOT BE SOLD OR TRANSFERRED IN THE ABSENCE OF SUCH REGISTRATION OR AN EXEMPTION THEREFROM UNDER SAID ACT AND ANY APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS. THIS WARRANT AND CERTAIN OF THE SHARES ISSUABLE UPON EXERCISE HEREOF ARE SUBJECT TO A REPURCHASE RIGHT IN FAVOR OF THE COMPANY AS SET FORTH HEREIN. WARRANT TO PURCHASE 100,000 SHARES OF COMMON STOCK OF PEET'S COMPANIES, INC. (Void after December 31, 2001) This certifies that HWJesse&Co or its assigns (the "Holder"), for value received, is entitled to purchase from Peet's Companies, Inc., a Washington corporation (the "Company"), having a place of business at 1400 Park Avenue, Emeryville, California 94608, a maximum of 100,000 fully paid and nonassessable shares (the "Warrant Shares") of the Company's Common Stock ("Common Stock") for cash at a price of $15.00 per share (the "Stock Purchase Price") at any time or from time to time up to and including 5:00 p.m. (Pacific time) on December 31, 2001 (the "Expiration Date"), upon surrender to the Company at its principal office (or at such other location as the Company may advise the Holder in writing) of this Warrant properly endorsed with the Subscription Form attached hereto duly completed and signed and, if applicable, upon payment in cash or by check of the aggregate Stock Purchase Price for the number of shares for which this Warrant is being exercised determined in accordance with the provisions hereof. The Stock Purchase Price and the number of shares purchasable hereunder are subject to adjustment and repurchase by the Company as provided in Sections 3 and 4, respectively, of this Warrant. This Warrant is subject to the following terms and conditions: 1. Exercise; Issuance of Certificates; Payment for Shares. 1.1 General. This Warrant is exercisable at the option of the holder of record hereof, at any time or from time to time, up to the Expiration Date for all or any part of the shares of Common Stock (but not for a fraction of a share) which may be purchased hereunder. The Company agrees that the shares of Common Stock purchased under this Warrant shall be and are deemed to be issued to the Holder hereof as the record owner of such shares as of the close of business on the date on which this Warrant shall have been surrendered, properly endorsed, the completed, executed Subscription Form delivered and payment made for such shares. Certificates for the shares of Common Stock so purchased, together with any other securities or property to which the Holder hereof is entitled upon such exercise, shall be delivered to the Holder hereof by the Company at the Company's expense within a reasonable 1. <PAGE> time after the rights represented by this Warrant have been so exercised. In case of a purchase of less than all the shares which may be purchased under this Warrant, the Company shall cancel this Warrant and execute and deliver a new Warrant or Warrants of like tenor for the balance of the shares purchasable under the Warrant surrendered upon such purchase to the Holder hereof within a reasonable time. Each stock certificate so delivered shall be in such denominations of Common Stock as may be requested by the Holder hereof and shall be registered in the name of such Holder. 1.2 Net Issue Exercise. Notwithstanding any provisions herein to the contrary, if the fair market value of one share of the Company's Common Stock is greater than the Stock Purchase Price (at the date of calculation as set forth below), in lieu of exercising this Warrant for cash, the Holder may elect to receive shares equal to the value (as determined below) of this Warrant (or the portion thereof being canceled) by surrender of this Warrant at the principal office of the Company together with the properly completed Subscription Form and notice of such election, in which event the Company shall issue to the Holder a number of shares of Common Stock computed using the following formula: X = Y (A-B) ------- A Where X = the number of shares of Common Stock to be issued to the Holder Y = the number of shares of Common Stock purchasable under the Warrant or, if only a portion of the Warrant is being exercised, the portion of the Warrant being canceled (at the date of such calculation) A = the fair market value of one share of the Company's Common Stock (at the date of such calculation) B = Stock Purchase Price (as adjusted to the date of such calculation) For purposes of the above calculation, fair market value of one share of Common Stock shall be determined by the Company's Board of Directors in good faith; provided, however, that in the event the Company makes an initial public offering of its Common Stock the fair market value per share shall be the per share offering price to the public of the Company's initial public offering. 2. Shares to Be Fully Paid; Reservation of Shares. The Company covenants and agrees that all shares of Common Stock which may be issued upon the exercise of the rights represented by this Warrant will, upon issuance, be duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable and free from all preemptive rights of any shareholder and free of all taxes, liens and charges with respect to the issue thereof. The Company further covenants and agrees that, during the period within which the rights represented by this Warrant may be exercised, the Company will at all times have authorized and reserved, for the purpose of issue or transfer upon exercise of the subscription rights evidenced by this Warrant, a sufficient number of shares of 2. <PAGE> authorized but unissued Common Stock, or other securities and property, when and as required to provide for the exercise of the rights represented by this Warrant. The Company will take all such action as may be necessary to assure that such shares of Common Stock may be issued as provided herein without violation of any applicable law or regulation, or of any requirements of any domestic securities exchange upon which the Common Stock may be listed; provided, however, that the Company shall not be required to effect a registration under Federal or State securities laws with respect to such exercise. The Company will not take any action which would result in any adjustment of the Stock Purchase Price (as set forth in Section 3 hereof) if the total number of shares of Common Stock issuable after such action upon exercise of all outstanding warrants, together with all shares of Common Stock then outstanding and all shares of Common Stock then issuable upon exercise of all options and upon the conversion of all convertible securities then outstanding, would exceed the total number of shares of Common Stock then authorized by the Company's Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation. 3. Adjustment of Stock Purchase Price and Number of Shares. The Stock Purchase Price and the number of shares purchasable upon the exercise of this Warrant shall be subject to adjustment from time to time upon the occurrence of certain events described in this Section 3. Upon each adjustment of the Stock Purchase Price, the Holder of this Warrant shall thereafter be entitled to purchase, at the Stock Purchase Price resulting from such adjustment, the number of shares obtained by multiplying the Stock Purchase Price in effect immediately prior to such adjustment by the number of shares purchasable pursuant hereto immediately prior to such adjustment, and dividing the product thereof by the Stock Purchase Price resulting from such adjustment. 3.1 Subdivision or Combination of Stock. In case the Company shall at any time subdivide its outstanding shares of Common Stock into a greater number of shares, the Stock Purchase Price in effect immediately prior to such subdivision shall be proportionately reduced, and conversely, in case the outstanding shares of Common Stock of the Company shall be combined into a smaller number of shares, the Stock Purchase Price in effect immediately prior to such combination shall be proportionately increased. 3.2 Dividends in Common Stock, Other Stock, Property, Reclassification. If at any time or from time to time the Holders of Common Stock (or any shares of stock or other securities at the time receivable upon the exercise of this Warrant) shall have received or become entitled to receive, without payment therefor, (a) Common Stock or any shares of stock or other securities which are at any time directly or indirectly convertible into or exchangeable for Common Stock, or any rights or options to subscribe for, purchase or otherwise acquire any of the foregoing by way of dividend or other distribution, (b) any cash paid or payable otherwise than as a cash dividend, or (c) Common Stock or additional stock or other securities or property (including cash) by way of spinoff, split-up, reclassification, combination of shares or similar corporate rearrangement, (other than shares of Common Stock issued as a stock split or adjustments in respect of which shall be covered by the terms of Section 3.1 above), then and in 3. <PAGE> each such case, the Holder hereof shall, upon the exercise of this Warrant, be entitled to receive, in addition to the number of shares of Common Stock receivable thereupon, and without payment of any additional consideration therefor, the amount of stock and other securities and property (including cash in the cases referred to in clause (b) above and this clause (c)) which such Holder would hold on the date of such exercise had he been the holder of record of such Common Stock as of the date on which holders of Common Stock received or became entitled to receive such shares or all other additional stock and other securities and property. 3.3 Reorganization, Reclassification, Consolidation, Merger or Sale. If any recapitalization, reclassification or reorganization of the capital stock of the Company, or any consolidation or merger of the Company with another corporation, or the sale of all or substantially all of its assets or other transaction shall be effected in such a way that holders of Common Stock shall be entitled to receive stock, securities, or other assets or property (an "Organic Change"), then, as a condition of such Organic Change, lawful and adequate provisions shall be made by the Company whereby the Holder hereof shall thereafter have the right to purchase and receive (in lieu of the shares of the Common Stock of the Company immediately theretofore purchasable and receivable upon the exercise of the rights represented hereby) such shares of stock, securities or other assets or property as may be issued or payable with respect to or in exchange for a number of outstanding shares of such Common Stock equal to the number of shares of such stock immediately theretofore purchasable and receivable upon the exercise of the rights represented hereby; provided, however, that in the event the value of the stock, securities or other assets or property (determined in good faith by the Board of Directors of the Company) issuable or payable with respect to one share of the Common Stock of the Company immediately theretofore purchasable and receivable upon the exercise of the rights represented hereby is in excess of the Stock Purchase Price hereof effective at the time of a merger and securities received in such reorganization, if any, are publicly traded, then this Warrant shall expire unless exercised prior to such Organic Change. In the event of any Organic Change, appropriate provision shall be made by the Company with respect to the rights and interests of the Holder of this Warrant to the end that the provisions hereof (including, without limitation, provisions for adjustments of the Stock Purchase Price and of the number of shares purchasable and receivable upon the exercise of this Warrant) shall thereafter be applicable, in relation to any shares of stock, securities or assets thereafter deliverable upon the exercise hereof. The Company will not effect any such consolidation, merger or sale unless, prior to the consummation thereof, the successor corporation (if other than the Company) resulting from such consolidation or the corporation purchasing such assets shall assume by written instrument reasonably satisfactory in form and substance to the Holder, executed and mailed or delivered to the registered Holder hereof at the last address of such Holder appearing on the books of the Company, the obligation to deliver to such Holder such shares of stock, securities or assets as, in accordance with the foregoing provisions, such Holder may be entitled to purchase. 3.4 Certain Events. If any change in the outstanding Common Stock of the Company or any other event occurs as to which the other provisions of this Section 3 are not strictly applicable or if strictly applicable would not fairly protect the purchase rights of the Holder of the Warrant in accordance with such provisions, then the Board of Directors of the Company shall make an adjustment in the number and class of shares available under the Warrant, the Stock Purchase Price or the application of such provisions, so as to protect such purchase rights as aforesaid. The adjustment shall be such as will give the Holder of the Warrant 4. <PAGE> upon exercise for the same aggregate Stock Purchase Price the total number, class and kind of shares as he would have owned had the Warrant been exercised prior to the event and had he continued to hold such shares until after the event requiring adjustment. 3.5 Notices of Change. (a) Immediately upon any adjustment in the number or class of shares subject to this Warrant and of the Stock Purchase Price, the Company shall give written notice thereof to the Holder, setting forth in reasonable detail and certifying the calculation of such adjustment. (b) The Company shall give written notice to the Holder at least 10 business days prior to the date on which the Company closes its books or takes a record for determining rights to receive any dividends or distributions. (c) The Company shall also give written notice to the Holder at least 30 business days prior to the date on which an Organic Change shall take place. 4. Repurchase Rights. The shares of Common Stock to be purchased pursuant to this Warrant shall be subject to the repurchase rights of the Company set forth in subparagraphs (a) and (b) below (the "Repurchase Right"): (a) In the event the Company's engagement of HWJesse&Co pursuant to the Advisory Engagement Letter between them dated December 9, 1996 (the "Commencement Date") is terminated by either party, then the Company shall have the right, exercisable at any time within ninety (90) days after the effective date of such termination (the "Termination Date"), to repurchase from the Holder, at the price of (i) $.01 per share in the case of unexercised Warrant Shares or (ii) the Stock Purchase Price in the case of exercised Warrant Shares, up to but not exceeding the number of Warrant Shares that remain subject to the Repurchase Right as of the Termination Date pursuant to the provisions of paragraph (b) below. (b) Twenty-Five Thousand (25,000) Warrant Shares shall be exempt from the Repurchase Right immediately upon issuance of this Warrant. The Company may exercise its Repurchase Right as to the remaining Seventy-Five Thousand (75,000) Warrant Shares as follows: (i) The Company may exercise its Repurchase Right with respect to a portion of Twenty-Five Thousand (25,000) Warrant Shares determined in accordance with the following formula: (12-N) ------ 12 When N equals the number of full months from the Commencement Date to the Termination Date. 5. <PAGE> (ii) In addition, the Company may exercise its Repurchase Right with respect to a portion of Fifty Thousand (50,000) Warrant Shares determined in accordance with the following formula: (50-N) ------ 50 Where N equals the number of full months from the Commencement Date to the Termination Date. (c) In the event the Holder effects a partial exercise of the Warrant prior to the exercise of the Company's Repurchase Right, then the Company shall exercise such Repurchase Right with respect to unexercised Warrant Shares prior to exercised Warrant Shares. (d) The Company shall be entitled to pay for any shares purchased pursuant to its Repurchase Right at the Company's option in cash or by offset against any indebtedness owing to the Company by Holder (including without limitation any Note given in payment for the Warrant Shares). (e) The Holder understands that any certificates representing Warrant Shares issued prior to the expiration of the Company's Repurchase Right will not be transferable until such expiration, will be held in escrow by the Company and will bear a restrictive legend describing such restriction on transfer and the Company's Repurchase Right. 5. Issue Tax. The issuance of certificates for shares of Common Stock upon the exercise of the Warrant shall be made without charge to the Holder of the Warrant for any issue tax (other than any applicable income taxes) in respect thereof; provided, however, that the Company shall not be required to pay any tax which may be payable in respect of any transfer involved in the issuance and delivery of any certificate in a name other than that of the then Holder of the Warrant being exercised. 6. Closing of Books. The Company will at no time close its transfer books against the transfer of any warrant or of any shares of Common Stock issued or issuable upon the exercise of any warrant in any manner which interferes with the timely exercise of this Warrant. 7. No Voting or Dividend Rights; Limitation of Liability. Nothing contained in this Warrant shall be construed as conferring upon the Holder hereof the right to vote or to consent or to receive notice as a shareholder of the Company or any other matters or any rights whatsoever as a shareholder of the Company. No dividends or interest shall be payable or accrued in respect of this Warrant or the interest represented hereby or the shares purchasable hereunder until, and only to the extent that, this Warrant shall have been exercised. No provisions hereof, in the absence of affirmative action by the holder to purchase shares of Common Stock, and no mere enumeration herein of the rights or privileges of the holder hereof, shall give rise to any liability of such Holder for the Stock Purchase Price or as a shareholder of the Company, whether such liability is asserted by the Company or by its creditors. 6. <PAGE> 8. Warrants Transferable. Subject to compliance with applicable federal and state securities laws and compliance by any transferee with all of the provisions of this Warrant, this Warrant and all rights hereunder are transferable, in whole or in part, without charge to the holder hereof (except for transfer taxes), upon surrender of this Warrant properly endorsed. Each taker and holder of this Warrant, by taking or holding the same, consents and agrees that this Warrant, when endorsed in blank, shall be deemed negotiable, and that the holder hereof, when this Warrant shall have been so endorsed, may be treated by the Company, at the Company's option, and all other persons dealing with this Warrant as the absolute owner hereof for any purpose and as the person entitled to exercise the rights represented by this Warrant, or to the transfer hereof on the books of the Company any notice to the contrary notwithstanding; but until such transfer on such books, the Company may treat the registered owner hereof as the owner for all purposes. 9. Rights and Obligations Survive Exercise of Warrant.

Binding Effect on Successors. This Warrant shall be binding upon any corporation succeeding the Company by merger, consolidation or acquisition of all or substantially all of the Company's assets. All of the obligations of the Company relating to the Common Stock issuable upon the exercise of this Warrant shall survive the exercise and termination of this Warrant. All of the covenants and agreements of the Company shall inure to the benefit of the successors and assigns of the holder hereof. 13. Descriptive Headings and Governing Law.
