The Purchaser is sophisticated and experienced in evaluating the merits and risks involved in an investment in the Shares.

The Company Information may or may not be material, may or may not have been publicly disclosed by or on behalf of the Company, and may or may not be available to the Seller from sources other than the Purchaser. The Seller acknowledges that such Company Information may be material to the Seller’s decision to sell the Shares, and that if such Company Information was made known to the Seller, it could cause the Seller to not proceed with, or delay the timing of, the sale of its Shares, or could cause the Seller to change the terms and conditions, including the Per Share Purchase Price, of the sale of its Shares. The Seller acknowledges that it has adequate information concerning the Shares and the business and financial condition of the Company to make an informed decision regarding the sale of the Shares, and has independently and without reliance upon the Purchaser, and based upon such information as the Seller has deemed appropriate, made its own analysis and decision to sell the Shares to the Purchaser. The Seller acknowledges that it is experienced, sophisticated and knowledgeable in the trading of securities and other instruments of private and public companies and understands the disadvantage to which it may be subject on account of any disparity of the access to, and possession of, such Company Information between the Seller and the Purchaser. The Seller also acknowledges that the Purchaser has no obligation to the Seller to disclose such Company Information. The Seller, on behalf of itself and its equity owners, members, managers, officers, partners, affiliates, attorneys, agents, representatives, beneficiaries, heirs, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Seller Related Parties”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, hereby:

(i) agrees that neither the Purchaser nor any of its affiliates nor any of the Purchaser’s or its affiliates’ respective current or former equity owners, members, managers, officers, partners, attorneys, agents, representatives, beneficiaries, heirs, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Purchaser Released Parties”) shall have any liability to the Seller Related Parties with respect to, based upon, arising from, resulting from, or relating to directly or indirectly the existence, substance, possession, disclosure, or nondisclosure of any Company Information, whether arising directly or indirectly, primarily or secondarily, by contract or operation of law or otherwise, including, without limitation, as a matter of contribution, indemnification, set-off, rescission, or reimbursement;

5

 

(ii) waives, to the maximum extent permitted by law, any right, claim or cause of action at law or in equity with respect to, arising from, based upon, resulting from or relating to directly or indirectly the existence, substance, possession, disclosure or nondisclosure of any Company Information, including, without limitation, pursuant to Sections 10(b) and 20A of the Exchange Act, or the rules and regulations promulgated by the SEC under the Exchange Act, or of any state statute or regulation;

(iii) forever releases and discharges the Purchaser Released Parties of and from any and all suits, demands, obligations, liabilities, claims and causes of action, contingent or otherwise, of every kind and nature, whether based on federal, state (including, without limitation, federal and state securities laws) or foreign law, at law and in equity, whether asserted, unasserted, absolute, contingent, known or unknown, which the Seller Related Parties may have against the Purchaser Released Parties, or any of them, to the extent arising from, relating to, based upon, resulting from, relating to directly or indirectly, or in connection with the existence, substance, possession, disclosure or nondisclosure of any Company Information; and

(iv) waives any and all protections afforded by any state or federal statute or regulation that would, if enforced, have the effect of limiting the enforceability or effectiveness of the foregoing releases or other foregoing provisions of this Agreement.

Exhibit 99.2

 

CALL OPTION AGREEMENT

THIS CALL OPTION AGREEMENT (this “Agreement”), dated December 11, 2019, by and between HG Vora Special Opportunities Master Fund, Ltd., a Cayman Islands exempted company (“Optioner”), and PW Partners Atlas Fund II LP, a Delaware limited partnership (“Optionee”).

RECITALS

WHEREAS, Optioner desires to grant to Optionee an irrevocable option to purchase from Optioner up to 1,500,000 shares (the “Option Shares”) of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (“Common Stock”), of Town Sports International Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), at an exercise price of $1.50 per share (the “Exercise Price”), pursuant to the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement.

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and the mutual representations, warranties, covenants and agreements hereinafter contained, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, and intending to be legally bound hereby, the parties hereto hereby agree as follows:

Article I

OPTION

1.1 Option Terms. For value received, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Optioner hereby grants, bargains, sells, conveys and delivers to Optionee an irrevocable right, option and privilege to purchase all right, title and interest of the Option Shares (the “Option”). The Option shall be exercisable at any time prior to the Expiration Date, in whole or in part, at Optionee’s sole discretion, for the purchase of Option Shares upon payment to Optioner of an amount (the “Option Price”) equal to the product of (x) the Exercise Price, multiplied by (y) the number of Option Shares. The Option shall expire at 12:00 p.m. Eastern time on December 23, 2019 (the “Expiration Date”). In the event Optionee does not exercise the Option by the Expiration Date, the Option and this Agreement shall terminate and be of no force and effect.

1.2 Procedure for Exercise. The Option shall be exercised by delivery to Optioner of (a) a written notice, substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A (the “Exercise Notice”), indicating (i) that Optionee is electing to exercise the Option to acquire the Option Shares, (ii) the number of Option Shares being purchased and the Option Price payable and (iii) the custodian bank, broker, dealer or other nominee of Optionee and the applicable account number where the Option Shares are to be transferred, and (b) an executed copy of the Stock Purchase Agreement, substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B (the “SPA”).

 

 

1.3 Adjustments. In the event of a declaration of a stock dividend, recapitalization, stock split-up, combination, or exchange, or other similar event that directly affects the Company’s capitalization or its Common Stock, the number of Option Shares available for purchase under this Option and the Exercise Price shall be appropriately adjusted by Optioner and Optionee, both acting in good faith, in order to prevent the dilution or enlargement of rights under the Option. If because of one or more recapitalizations, reorganizations or other corporate events, the holders of outstanding Common Stock receive something other than shares of Common Stock, then, upon exercise of the Option, Optionee shall receive what Optionee would have received had Optionee exercised the Option immediately before the first such corporate event and not disposed of anything Optionee received as a result of the corporate event.

Article II

2.1 Representations and Warranties of Optioner. As an inducement to Optionee to enter into this Agreement and to consummate the transactions contemplated herein, Optioner hereby represents and warrants to Optionee as follows:

The Seller acknowledges that such Company Information may be material to the Seller’s decision to sell the Shares, and that if such Company Information was made known to the Seller, it could cause the Seller to not proceed with, or delay the timing of, the sale of its Shares, or could cause the Seller to change the terms and conditions, including the Per Share Purchase Price, of the sale of its Shares.

The Seller also acknowledges that the Purchaser has no obligation to the Seller to disclose such Company Information. The Seller, on behalf of itself and its equity owners, members, managers, officers, partners, affiliates, attorneys, agents, representatives, beneficiaries, heirs, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Seller Related Parties”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, hereby:

5

 

(i) agrees that neither the Purchaser nor any of its affiliates nor any of the Purchaser’s or its affiliates’ respective current or former equity owners, members, managers, officers, partners, attorneys, agents, representatives, beneficiaries, heirs, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Purchaser Released Parties”) shall have any liability to the Seller Related Parties with respect to, based upon, arising from, resulting from, or relating to directly or indirectly the existence, substance, possession, disclosure, or nondisclosure of any Company Information, whether arising directly or indirectly, primarily or secondarily, by contract or operation of law or otherwise, including, without limitation, as a matter of contribution, indemnification, set-off, rescission, or reimbursement;

(ii) waives, to the maximum extent permitted by law, any right, claim or cause of action at law or in equity with respect to, arising from, based upon, resulting from or relating to directly or indirectly the existence, substance, possession, disclosure or nondisclosure of any Company Information, including, without limitation, pursuant to Sections 10(b) and 20A of the Exchange Act, or the rules and regulations promulgated by the SEC under the Exchange Act, or of any state statute or regulation;

(iii) forever releases and discharges the Purchaser Released Parties of and from any and all suits, demands, obligations, liabilities, claims and causes of action, contingent or otherwise, of every kind and nature, whether based on federal, state (including, without limitation, federal and state securities laws) or foreign law, at law and in equity, whether asserted, unasserted, absolute, contingent, known or unknown, which the Seller Related Parties may have against the Purchaser Released Parties, or any of them, to the extent arising from, relating to, based upon, resulting from, relating to directly or indirectly, or in connection with the existence, substance, possession, disclosure or nondisclosure of any Company Information; and

(iv) waives any and all protections afforded by any state or federal statute or regulation that would, if enforced, have the effect of limiting the enforceability or effectiveness of the foregoing releases or other foregoing provisions of this Agreement.

Any waiver, permission, consent or approval of any kind or character on the part of any party of any breach or default under this Agreement, or any waiver on the part of any party of any provisions or conditions of this Agreement, must be in writing and shall be effective only to the extent specifically set forth in such writing.
