ABOUT OTIS WORLDWIDE CORPORATION
Otis Worldwide Corporation (“Otis,” “we,” “us,” “our,” the “Company,” or the “Registrant”) is the world’s largest elevator and escalator manufacturing, installation and service company. Our operations are organized into two segments: New Equipment and Service. Through our New Equipment segment, we design, manufacture, sell and install a wide range of passenger and freight elevators as well as escalators and moving walkways for residential and commercial building and infrastructure projects. The Service segment provides maintenance and repair services for both our products and those of other manufacturers, and provides modernization services to upgrade elevators and escalators.
On November 26, 2018, United Technologies Corporation, subsequently renamed Raytheon Technologies Corporation on April 3, 2020 (“UTC”), announced its intention to spin-off its Otis reportable segment into a separate publicly traded company (the “Separation”). The Registrant was incorporated on March 1, 2019, as a wholly owned subsidiary of UTC to hold the assets and liabilities associated with UTC’s Otis operating segment. On April 3, 2020, UTC completed the spin-off of Otis through a pro-rata distribution of 0.5 shares of Otis common stock for every share of UTC common stock held at the close of business on the record date of March 19, 2020 (the “Distribution”). Otis began to trade as a separate public company (New York Stock Exchange: OTIS) on April 3, 2020.
Our principal executive offices are located at One Carrier Place, Farmington, Connecticut 06032, and our telephone number at that location is (860) 233-6847.
ABOUT THIS PROSPECTUS
This prospectus is a part of a registration statement that we filed on Form S-3 with the SEC under a “shelf” registration process. Under this shelf registration process, the Registrant and/or certain selling securityholders may, from time to time, offer and sell, either separately or together, common stock, debt securities, preferred stock units and/or warrants in one or more offerings.
Each time the Registrant and/or any selling securityholder offers and sells securities, it will provide a prospectus supplement or other type of offering document or supplement (together referred to herein as a “prospectus supplement”) that will contain specific information about the terms of that offering. Any applicable prospectus supplement or free writing prospectus may also add, update or change information contained in this prospectus, and accordingly, to the extent inconsistent, information in this prospectus is superseded by the information in such applicable prospectus supplement or free writing prospectus. You should read this prospectus and any applicable prospectus supplement together with the additional information described under the heading “Where You Can Find More Information.”
This prospectus and any prospectus supplement may contain summaries of certain provisions contained in documents described in this prospectus or any prospectus supplement.

The Registrant does not take any responsibility for, and can provide no assurance as to the reliability of, any other information that others may give you. The Registrant has not authorized any other person to provide you with different or additional information, and is not making an offer to sell securities in any jurisdiction where the offer or sale is not permitted. You should assume that the information appearing in this prospectus is accurate only as of the date hereof or, in the case of information incorporated or deemed incorporated by reference herein, as of the date thereof, regardless of the time of delivery of the prospectus or any sale of securities.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
This prospectus and other materials Otis has filed or will file with the SEC contain or incorporate by reference statements which, to the extent they are not statements of historical or present fact, constitute “forward-looking statements” under the securities laws. From time to time, oral or written forward-looking statements may also be included in other information released to the public. These forward-looking statements are intended to provide management’s current expectations or plans for Otis’ future operating and financial performance, based on assumptions currently believed to be valid. Forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as “believe,” “expect,” “expectations,” “plans,” “strategy,” “prospects,” “estimate,” “project,” “target,” “anticipate,” “will,” “should,” “see,” “guidance,” “outlook,” “confident” and other words of similar meaning in connection with a discussion of future operating or financial performance or the Separation (as defined below) from UTC. Forward-looking statements may include, among other things, statements relating to future sales, earnings, cash flow, results of operations, uses of cash, dividends, share repurchases, tax rates and other measures of financial performance or potential future plans, strategies or transactions of Otis following the Separation, including the estimated costs associated with the Separation, including synergies or customer cost savings, and other statements that are not historical facts. All forward-looking statements involve risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements. For those statements, Otis claims the protection of the safe harbor for forward-looking statements contained in the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such risks, uncertainties and other factors include, without limitation:
the effect of economic conditions in the industries and markets in which Otis and its businesses operate in the U.S. and globally and any changes therein, including financial market conditions, fluctuations in commodity prices, interest rates and foreign currency exchange rates, levels of end market demand in construction, the impact of weather conditions, pandemic health issues (including COVID-19 and its effects, among other things, on global supply, demand, and distribution disruptions as the coronavirus outbreak continues and results in an increasingly prolonged period of travel, commercial and/or other similar restrictions and limitations), natural disasters and the financial condition of Otis’ customers and suppliers;
challenges in the development, production, delivery, support, performance and realization of the anticipated benefits of advanced technologies and new products and services;
future levels of indebtedness, capital spending and research and development spending;
future availability of credit and factors that may affect such availability, including credit market conditions and Otis’ capital structure;
the timing and scope of future repurchases of Otis’ common stock, which may be suspended at any time due to various factors, including market conditions and the level of other investing activities and uses of cash;
delays and disruption in delivery of materials and services from suppliers;
cost reduction or containment actions, restructuring costs and related savings and other consequences thereof;
new business and investment opportunities;
the anticipated benefits of moving away from diversification and balance of operations across product lines, regions and industries;
the outcome of legal proceedings, investigations and other contingencies;
pension plan assumptions and future contributions;
the impact of the negotiation of collective bargaining agreements and labor disputes;
the effect of changes in political conditions in the U.S. and other countries in which Otis and its businesses operate, including the effect of changes in U.S. trade policies or the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union, on general market conditions, global trade policies and currency exchange rates in the near term and beyond;
3

TABLE OF CONTENTS

the effect of changes in tax, environmental, regulatory (including among other things import/export) and other laws and regulations in the U.S. and other countries in which Otis and its businesses operate;
the ability of Otis to retain and hire key personnel;
the scope, nature, impact or timing of acquisition and divestiture activity, including among other things integration of acquired businesses into existing businesses and realization of synergies and opportunities for growth and innovation and incurrence of related costs;
the expected benefits of the Separation;
a determination by the Internal Revenue Service and other tax authorities that the Distribution or certain related transactions should be treated as taxable transactions;
risks associated with indebtedness incurred as a result of financing transactions undertaken in connection with the Separation;
the risk that dis-synergy costs, costs of restructuring transactions and other costs incurred in connection with the Separation will exceed Otis’ estimates; and
the impact of the Separation on Otis’ businesses and Otis’ resources, systems, procedures and controls, diversion of management’s attention and the impact on relationships with customers, suppliers, employees and other business counterparties.
The above list of factors is not exhaustive or necessarily in order of importance. For additional information on identifying factors that may cause actual results to vary materially from those stated in forward-looking statements, see the discussions under “Risk Factors.” In addition, we discuss certain of these matters more fully, as well as certain other factors that may affect our business operations, financial condition and results of operations, in our filings with the SEC, including our Registration Statement on Form 10, quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and current reports on Form 8-K. Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which it is made, and Otis assumes no obligation to update or revise such statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by applicable law.
RISK FACTORS
You should carefully consider any specific risks set forth under the caption “Risk Factors” in the applicable prospectus supplement, under the caption “Risk Factors” included in the information statement filed with the SEC as part of the Registrant’s registration statement on Form 10, as amended, which was originally publicly filed on February 7, 2020 and subsequently amended, and under the caption “Risk Factors” in any of the Registrant’s subsequent annual reports on Form 10-K and quarterly reports on Form 10-Q incorporated by reference in this prospectus, before making an investment decision. For more information, see “Where You Can Find More Information.”
USE OF PROCEEDS
The Registrant intends to use the net proceeds from the sales of the securities as will be set forth in the applicable prospectus supplement. Unless we specify otherwise in an applicable prospectus supplement, we will not receive any of the proceeds from a sale of securities by any selling securityholder.
PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION
The Registrant and/or any selling securityholders may sell securities, separately or in combination, in one or more of the following ways:
to or through underwriting syndicates represented by managing underwriters;
through one or more underwriters without a syndicate for them to offer and sell to the public;
through dealers or agents; or
directly to investors.
4

TABLE OF CONTENTS

The securities the Registrant and/or the selling securityholders distribute by any of these methods may be sold to the public, in one or more transactions, either:
at a fixed price or prices, which may be changed;
at market prices prevailing at the time of sale;
at prices related to prevailing market prices; or
at negotiated prices.
The Registrant may sell securities from time to time to one or more underwriters, who would purchase the securities as principal for resale to the public, either on a firm-commitment or best-efforts basis. If the Registrant sells securities to underwriters, it may execute an underwriting agreement with them at the time of sale and will name them in the applicable prospectus supplement. In connection with those sales, underwriters may be deemed to have received compensation from the Registrant in the form of underwriting discounts or commissions and may also receive commissions from purchasers of the securities for whom they may act as agents. Underwriters may resell the securities to or through dealers, and those dealers may receive compensation in the form of discounts, concessions or commissions from the underwriters and/or commissions from purchasers for whom they may act as agents. The applicable prospectus supplement will include any required information about underwriting compensation the registrant pays to underwriters, and any discounts, concessions or commissions underwriters allow to participating dealers, in connection with an offering of securities.
The Registrant may solicit offers to purchase securities directly from the public from time to time. It may also designate agents from time to time to solicit offers to purchase securities from the public on its behalf. If required, the applicable prospectus supplement relating to any particular offering of securities will name any agents designated to solicit offers, and will include information about any commissions the Registrant may pay the agents, in that offering. Agents may be deemed to be “underwriters” as that term is defined in the Securities Act.
From time to time, the Registrant may sell securities to one or more dealers acting as principals. The dealers, who may be deemed to be “underwriters” as that term is defined in the Securities Act, may then resell those securities to the public.
Any underwriter or agent involved in the offer and sale of any securities will be named in the applicable prospectus supplement.
Underwriters, agents and dealers may be entitled, under underwriting or other agreements with the Registrant, to indemnification against certain civil liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act. Unless otherwise stated in, or incorporated by reference into, a prospectus supplement, the obligations of the underwriters to purchase any securities will be conditioned on customary closing conditions and the underwriters will be obligated to purchase all of such series of securities, if any are purchased.
In connection with an offering, the underwriters may purchase and sell securities in the open market. These transactions may include short sales, stabilizing transactions and purchases to cover positions created by short sales.
Short sales involve the sale by the underwriters of a greater number of securities than they are required to purchase in an offering. Stabilizing transactions consist of certain bids or purchases made for the purpose of preventing or slowing a decline in the market price of the securities while an offering is in progress.
The underwriters may also impose a penalty bid. This occurs when a particular underwriter repays to the other underwriters a portion of the underwriting discount received by it because the underwriters have repurchased securities sold by or for the account of that underwriter in stabilizing or short-covering transactions.
These activities by the underwriters may stabilize, maintain or otherwise affect the market price of the securities. As a result, the price of the securities may be higher than the price that otherwise might exist in the open market. If these activities are commenced, they may be discontinued by the underwriters at any time. These transactions may be effected on an exchange or automated quotation system, if the securities are listed on that exchange or admitted for trading on that automated quotation system, or in the over-the-counter market or otherwise.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Certain of the underwriters, dealers or agents and their affiliates may engage in transactions with and perform services for the Registrant in the ordinary course of their businesses.
The applicable prospectus supplement will disclose required information with respect to selling securityholders, if any.
DESCRIPTION OF COMMON STOCK, DEBT SECURITIES, PREFERRED STOCK, UNITS AND WARRANTS
The description of the Registrant’s common stock, preferred stock, units or warrants, as applicable, will be provided in a prospectus supplement. The Registrant's Debt Securities will be issued under the Indenture, dated as of February 27, 2020 (as amended or supplemented). Each time the Registrant offers securities with this prospectus, the terms of that offering, including the specific amounts, prices and terms of the securities offered, and, if applicable, information about the selling securityholders, will be contained in the applicable prospectus supplement and other offering materials relating to such offering or in other filings the Registrant makes with the SEC under the Exchange Act, which are incorporated by reference herein.
LEGAL MATTERS
Unless otherwise indicated in the applicable prospectus supplement, the validity of any securities to be offered will be passed upon for the Registrant by Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz. Any underwriters will be represented by their own legal counsel.
INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
The combined financial statements incorporated in this prospectus by reference to Amendment No. 1 to Form 10 for the year ended December 31, 2019 have been so incorporated in reliance on the report of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, an independent registered public accounting firm, given on the authority of said firm as experts in auditing and accounting.
With respect to the unaudited financial information of Otis Worldwide Corporation for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2020 and 2019 and the six-month periods ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 incorporated by reference in this prospectus, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP reported that they have applied limited procedures in accordance with professional standards for a review of such information. However, their separate reports dated May 8, 2020 and July 31, 2020 incorporated by reference herein state that they did not audit and they do not express an opinion on that unaudited financial information. Accordingly, the degree of reliance on their reports on such information should be restricted in light of the limited nature of the review procedures applied. PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP is not subject to the liability provisions of Section 11 of the Securities Act of 1933 for each report on the unaudited financial information because that report is not a “report” or a “part” of the registration statement prepared or certified by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP within the meaning of Sections 7 and 11 of the Act.

Item 15.
Indemnification of Directors and Officers
Section 5.1 of the Registrant’s amended and restated bylaws requires the Registrant to indemnify and hold harmless, to the full extent permitted under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “DGCL”) each person who is made or threatened to be made a party to (or, in the case of directors and officers, otherwise involved in) any threatened, pending or completed action, suit, arbitration, alternative dispute resolution procedure, legislative hearing or inquiry or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, by reason of the fact that such person is or was a director, employee or officer of the Registrant, of any constituent corporation absorbed in a consolidation or merger or of a subsidiary of the Registrant, or serves or served as such or in a fiduciary capacity with another enterprise at the request of the Registrant, any such constituent corporation or a subsidiary of the Registrant. Such indemnification will cover all expenses, liabilities and losses reasonably incurred by such individuals.
Subsection (a) of Section 145 of the DGCL empowers a corporation to indemnify any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative (other than an action by or in the right of the corporation) by reason of the fact that the person is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, against expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by the person in connection with such action, suit or proceeding if the person acted in good faith and in a manner the person reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe the person’s conduct was unlawful. The termination of any action, suit or proceeding by judgment, order, settlement, conviction, or upon a plea of nolo contendere or its equivalent, shall not, of itself, create a presumption that the person did not act in good faith and in a manner which the person reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interest of the corporation, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had reasonable cause to believe that the person’s conduct was unlawful.
Subsection (b) of Section 145 of the DGCL empowers a corporation to indemnify any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action or suit by or in right of the corporation to procure a judgment in its favor by reason of the fact that such person acted in any of the
II-1

TABLE OF CONTENTS

capacities set forth above, against expenses (including attorneys’ fees) actually and reasonably incurred by the person in connection with the defense or settlement of such action or suit if the person acted in good faith and in a manner the person reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation and except that no indemnification shall be made in respect of any claim, issue or matter as to which such person shall have been adjudged to be liable to the corporation unless and only to the extent that the Court of Chancery or the court in which such action or suit was brought shall determine upon application that, despite the adjudication of liability but in view of all the circumstances of the case, such person is fairly and reasonably entitled to indemnity for such expenses which the Court of Chancery or such other court shall deem proper.
Subsection (d) of Section 145 of the DGCL provides that any indemnification under subsections (a) and (b) of Section 145 (unless ordered by a court) shall be made by the corporation only as authorized in the specific case upon a determination that indemnification of the present or former director, officer, employee or agent is proper in the circumstances because the person has met the applicable standard of conduct set forth in subsections (a) and (b) of Section 145. Such determination shall be made, with respect to a person who is a director or officer at the time of such determination, (1) by a majority vote of the directors who are not parties to such action, suit or proceeding, even though less than a quorum, or (2) by a committee of such directors designated by the majority vote of such directors, even though less than a quorum, or (3) if there are no such directors, or if such directors so direct, by independent legal counsel in a written opinion, or (4) by the shareowners.
Section 145 of the DGCL further provides that to the extent a present or former director or officer of a corporation has been successful on the merits or otherwise in the defense of any action, suit or proceeding referred to in subsections (a) and (b) of Section 145, or in defense of any claim, issue or matter therein, such person shall be indemnified against expenses (including attorneys’ fees) actually and reasonably incurred by such person in connection therewith and that such expenses may be paid by the corporation in advance of the final disposition of such action, suit or proceeding upon receipt of an undertaking by or on behalf of such director or officer to repay such amount if it shall ultimately be determined that such person is not entitled to be indemnified by the corporation as authorized in Section 145 of the DGCL; that any indemnification and advancement of expenses provided by, or granted pursuant to, Section 145 shall not be deemed exclusive of any other rights to which the indemnified party may be entitled; that indemnification and advancement of expenses provided by, or granted pursuant to, Section 145 shall, unless otherwise provided when authorized or ratified, continue as to a person who has ceased to be a director, officer, employee or agent and shall inure to the benefit of such person’s heirs, executors and administrators; and empowers the corporation to purchase and maintain insurance on behalf of any person who is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise against any liability asserted against such person and incurred by such person in any such capacity, or arising out of such person’s status as such, whether or not the corporation would have the power to indemnify such person against such liabilities under Section 145.
As authorized by the Registrant’s amended and restated bylaws, the Registrant may purchase and maintain at its expense on behalf of directors and officers insurance, within certain limits, covering liabilities which may be incurred by them in such capacities.
To the fullest extent permitted by the DGCL, the Registrant’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation provides that a director of the Registrant shall not be personally liable to the Registrant or its shareowners for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director.

Item 17.
Undertakings
The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes:
(1) To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this registration statement:
(i)
To include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”);
(ii)
To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of the registration statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the registration statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than a 20% change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the “Calculation of Registration Fee” table in the effective registration statement; and
(iii)
To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the registration statement or any material change to such information in the registration statement;
II-3

TABLE OF CONTENTS

provided, however, that paragraphs (i), (ii) and (iii) above do not apply if the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in reports filed with or furnished to the SEC by the Registrant pursuant to Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act that are incorporated by reference in the registration statement, or is contained in a form of prospectus filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) that is part of the registration statement.
(2) That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.
(3) To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.
(4) That, for the purpose of determining liability under the Securities Act to any purchaser:
(i)
Each prospectus filed by the Registrant pursuant to Rule 424(b)(3) shall be deemed to be part of the registration statement as of the date the filed prospectus was deemed part of and included in the registration statement; and
(ii)
Each prospectus required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424(b)(2), (b)(5), or (b)(7) as part of a registration statement in reliance on Rule 430B relating to an offering made pursuant to Rule 415(a)(1)(i), (vii), or (x) for the purpose of providing the information required by Section 10(a) of the Securities Act shall be deemed to be part of and included in the registration statement as of the earlier of the date such form of prospectus is first used after effectiveness or the date of the first contract of sale of securities in the offering described in the prospectus. As provided in Rule 430B, for liability purposes of the issuer and any person that is at that date an underwriter, such date shall be deemed to be a new effective date of the registration statement relating to the securities in the registration statement to which that prospectus relates, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof. Provided, however, that no statement made in a registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement or made in a document incorporated or deemed incorporated by reference into the registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement will, as to a purchaser with a time of contract of sale prior to such effective date, supersede or modify any statement that was made in the registration statement or prospectus that was part of the registration statement or made in any such document immediately prior to such effective date.
(5) That, for the purpose of determining liability of the Registrant under the Securities Act to any purchaser in the initial distribution of the securities, the undersigned Registrant undertakes that in a primary offering of securities of the undersigned Registrant pursuant to this registration statement, regardless of the underwriting method used to sell the securities to the purchaser, if the securities are offered or sold to such purchaser by means of any of the following communications, the undersigned Registrant will be a seller to the purchaser and will be considered to offer or sell such securities to such purchaser:
(i)
Any preliminary prospectus or prospectus of the undersigned Registrant relating to the offering required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424;
(ii)
Any free writing prospectus relating to the offering prepared by or on behalf of the undersigned Registrant or used or referred to by the undersigned Registrant;
(iii)
The portion of any other free writing prospectus relating to the offering containing material information about the undersigned Registrant or its securities provided by or on behalf of the undersigned Registrant; and
(iv)
Any other communication that is an offer in the offering made by the undersigned Registrant to the purchaser.
II-4

TABLE OF CONTENTS

(6) That, for purposes of determining liability under the Securities Act, each filing of the Registrant’s annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or 15(d) of the Exchange Act (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plan’s annual report pursuant to Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act) that is incorporated by reference in the registration statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.
(7) Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the Registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the Registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the SEC such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the Registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the Registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the Registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.

Re: Registration Statement on Form S-3

Ladies and Gentlemen:

We have acted as special outside counsel to Otis Worldwide Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), in connection with the Registration Statement on Form S-3 (the “Registration Statement”) to be filed on the date hereof with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) in connection with the registration, pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (including the rules and regulations thereunder, the “Act”), that is automatically effective under the Act pursuant to Rule 462(e) promulgated thereunder of an indeterminate amount of the Company’s (a) common stock, $0.01 par value per share (the “Common Stock”); (b) debt securities (the “Debt Securities”); (c) preferred stock, $0.01 par value per share (the “Preferred Stock”); (d) units (the “Units”) and (e) warrants (the “Warrants”). The Common Stock, the Debt Securities, the Preferred Stock, the Units and the Warrants are collectively referred to herein as the “Securities.”

The Debt Securities are to be issued under the Indenture, dated February 27, 2020, between the Company and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., filed as Exhibit 4.1 to the Registration Statement (the “Indenture”).  The Units are to be issued pursuant to a unit certificate or other applicable agreement (the “Unit Agreement”) between the Company and one or more institutions, as a unit agent, each as identified in the Unit Agreement.  The Warrants are to be issued pursuant to a warrant agreement (each, a “Warrant Agreement”) between the Company and one or more institutions, as a warrant agent, each as identified in the Warrant Agreement.

The prospectus that is part of the Registration Statement as supplemented in the future by various supplements to the prospectus (each, a “Prospectus Supplement”) will provide for the issuance and sale by the Company of the Securities, which may be offered pursuant to Rule 415 under the Act.

We have examined and relied on originals or copies certified or otherwise identified to our satisfaction of such documents, corporate records, certificates of the Company or public officials and other instruments as we have deemed necessary and appropriate for the purposes of this opinion letter. In such examination, we have assumed (a) the authenticity of original documents and the genuineness of all signatures; (b) the conformity to the originals of all documents submitted to us as copies; (c) the truth, accuracy and completeness of the information, representations and warranties contained in the agreements, records, documents, instruments and certificates we have reviewed; (d) the Registration Statement, and any amendments thereto (including post-effective amendments), are effective under the Act, and the Indenture has been qualified under the Trust Indenture Act of 1939, as amended; (e) an appropriate Prospectus Supplement and term sheet, if applicable, will have been filed with the SEC describing the Securities offered thereby; (f) all Securities will be issued and sold in compliance with applicable federal and state securities laws and in the manner stated in the Registration Statement  and the applicable Prospectus Supplement(s); (g) a definitive purchase, underwriting, agency or similar agreement with respect to any Securities offered will have been duly authorized and validly executed and delivered by the parties thereto (the “Purchase Agreement”); (h) any Debt Securities that may be issued will be issued in a form that complies with the Indenture, and any supplemental indenture to be entered into in connection with the issuance of such Debt Securities will be signed or countersigned, as the case may be, by duly authorized officers of the Company and of the trustee named therein and will have been duly authorized and validly executed and delivered by the parties thereto; (i) any Unit Agreement or Warrant Agreement to be entered into in connection with the issuance of Units or Warrants will have been duly authorized and validly executed and delivered by the parties thereto; and (j) at the time of any issuance of Common Stock, Preferred Stock or Securities convertible into or exchangeable, redeemable or exercisable for Common Stock or Preferred Stock, there will be sufficient authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock or Preferred Stock, as applicable, reserved for such issuance and any Securities issuable upon conversion, exchange, redemption or exercise of any Securities being offered will be duly authorized and created. We have assumed that the terms of the Securities will have been duly authorized and created by the Company, and that the terms of the Securities will have been established so as not to, and that the execution and delivery by the parties thereto of the documents pursuant to which the Securities are governed and the performance of such parties’ obligations thereunder, will not, breach, violate, conflict with or constitute a default under (1) the organizational or governing documents of any party or any agreement or instrument to which any party thereto is subject, (2) any law, rule or regulation to which any party thereto is subject (excepting the laws of the State of New York, the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “DGCL”) and the federal securities laws of the United States of America as such laws apply to the Company and the transaction pursuant to which the Securities are offered to the extent set forth herein), (3) any judicial or regulatory order or decree of any governmental authority or (4) any consent, approval, license, authorization or validation of, or filing, recording or registration with any governmental authority. We also assume that at the time of issuance of the Securities the Company is and will remain duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the State of Delaware and that the Company will have duly authorized the issuance of the Securities and related matters. As to any facts material to the opinions expressed herein that we did not independently establish or verify, we have relied and will rely upon statements and representations of officers and other representatives of the Company and others.

We are members of the Bar of the State of New York, and we have not considered, and we express no opinion as to, the laws of any jurisdiction other than the laws of the State of New York, the DGCL and the federal securities laws of the United States of America, in each case as in effect on the date hereof.

Based upon the foregoing, and subject to the qualifications set forth in this letter, we advise you that, in our opinion:

1. With respect to any shares of Common Stock to be offered by the Company pursuant to the Registration Statement (the “Offered Common Shares”), when certificates in the form required under the DGCL representing the Offered Common Shares are duly executed, countersigned, registered and delivered upon payment of the agreed upon consideration therefor, the Offered Common Shares (including any shares of Common Stock duly issued upon conversion, exchange, redemption or exercise of any other Securities registered on the Registration Statement), when issued and sold in accordance with the Purchase Agreement, will be legally issued, fully paid and nonassessable.

2. With respect to any series of Debt Securities to be offered by the Company pursuant to the Registration Statement (the “Offered Debt Securities”), when the terms of the Offered Debt Securities and of their issuance and sale have been duly established in conformity with the Indenture and any supplemental indenture to be entered into in connection with the issuance of such Offered Debt Securities, the Offered Debt Securities, when issued and sold in accordance with the Indenture, any supplemental indenture to be entered into in connection with the issuance of such Offered Debt Securities and the Purchase Agreement, will be valid and binding obligations of the Company, enforceable against the Company in accordance with their respective terms.

3. With respect to any shares of Preferred Stock to be offered by the Company pursuant to the Registration Statement (the “Offered Preferred Shares”), upon due filing of the applicable definitive Certificate of Designations with respect to such Preferred Stock and when certificates in the form required under the DGCL representing the Offered Preferred Shares are duly executed, countersigned, registered and delivered upon payment of the agreed upon consideration therefor, the Offered Preferred Shares (including any shares of Preferred Stock duly issued upon conversion, exchange, redemption or exercise of any other Securities registered on the Registration Statement), when issued and sold in accordance with the Purchase Agreement, will be legally issued, fully paid and nonassessable.

4. With respect to any Units to be offered by the Company pursuant to the Registration Statement (the “Offered Units”), (a) when the terms of the issuance and sale of the Offered Units have been duly established in conformity with the Unit Agreement; and (b) any shares of Common Stock or Preferred Stock that are a component of any Offered Units are validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable and any other Securities that are components of any Offered Units are valid and binding obligations of the Company, enforceable against the Company in accordance with their respective terms, the Offered Units, when issued and sold in accordance with the Unit Agreement and the Purchase Agreement, will be valid and legally binding obligations of the Company, enforceable against the Company in accordance with their respective terms.

5. With respect to any Warrants to be offered by the Company pursuant to the Registration Statement (the “Offered Warrants”), (a) when the terms of the issuance and sale of the Offered Warrants have been duly established in conformity with the Warrant Agreement; and (b) any shares of Common Stock or Preferred Stock that are a component of any Offered Warrants are validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable and any other Securities that are components of any Offered Warrants are valid and binding obligations of the Company, enforceable against the Company in accordance with their respective terms, the Offered Warrants, when issued and sold in accordance with the Warrant Agreement and the Purchase Agreement, will be valid and legally binding obligations of the Company, enforceable against the Company in accordance with their respective terms.

The opinions set forth above are subject to the effects of (a) bankruptcy, insolvency, fraudulent conveyance, reorganization, moratorium and other similar laws relating to or affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally; (b) general equitable principles (whether considered in a proceeding in equity or at law); (c) an implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing; (d) provisions of law that require that a judgment for money damages rendered by a court in the United States be expressed only in United States dollars; (e) limitations by any governmental authority that limit, delay or prohibit the making of payments outside the United States; and (f) generally applicable laws that (1) provide for the enforcement of oral waivers or modifications where a material change of position in reliance thereon has occurred or provide that a course of performance may operate as a waiver, (2) limit the availability of a remedy under certain circumstances where another remedy has been elected, (3) limit the enforceability of provisions releasing, exculpating or exempting a party from, or requiring indemnification of a party for, liability for its own action or inaction, to the extent the action or inaction involves negligence, gross negligence, recklessness, willful misconduct or unlawful conduct, (4) may, where less than all of a contract may be unenforceable, limit the enforceability of the balance of the contract to circumstances in which the unenforceable portion is not an essential part of the agreed-upon exchange, (5) may limit the enforceability of provisions providing for compounded interest, imposing increased interest rates or late payment charges upon delinquency in payment or default or providing for liquidated damages or for premiums or penalties upon acceleration, or (6) limit the waiver of rights under usury laws. Furthermore, the manner in which any particular issue relating to the opinions would be treated in any actual court case would depend in part on facts and circumstances particular to the case and would also depend on how the court involved chose to exercise the wide discretionary authority generally available to it. We express no opinion as to the effect of Section 210(p) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

We express no opinion as to whether, or the extent to which, the laws of any particular jurisdiction apply to the subject matter hereof, including, without limitation, the enforceability of the governing law provision contained in any Securities and their governing documents.

This letter speaks only as of its date and is delivered in accordance with the requirements of Item 601(b)(5) of Regulation S-K under the Act. We hereby consent to the filing of copies of this opinion letter as an exhibit to the Registration Statement and to the use of our name in the prospectus forming a part of the Registration Statement under the caption “Legal Matters.” In giving this consent, we do not thereby admit that we are within the category of persons whose consent is required under Section 7 of the Act.


 
Very truly yours,
