Ladies and Gentlemen:
We have acted as counsel to The Lovesac Company, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), in connection with the preparation and filing by the Company of a registration Statement on Form S-8 (the “Registration Statement”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission covering the offering of an additional 1,038,149 shares (the “Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.00001 per share (the “Common Stock”), issuable pursuant to the Company’s Amended and Restated 2017 Equity Incentive Plan (the “Plan”).
|(a)||The Registration Statement;|
|(b)||The certificate of incorporation and by-laws of the Company, in each case as amended to date; and|
|(c)||Originals or copies of such other corporate records of the Company, certificates of public officials and of officers of the Company, and agreements and other documents as we have deemed necessary as a basis for the opinions expressed below.|
In our examination, we have assumed the genuineness of all signatures, the authenticity of all documents, certificates and instruments submitted to us as originals and the conformity with originals of all documents submitted to us as copies.
Our opinion set forth below is based on the text of the Plan as referenced in the Exhibit Index to the Registration Statement.
Our opinion expressed below is limited to the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, and we do not express any opinion herein concerning any other law.
Based upon and subject to the foregoing and having regard for such legal considerations as we have deemed relevant, we are of the opinion that authorized but not previously issued Shares which may be delivered under the Plan have been duly authorized by the Company and, when (a) issued and delivered by the Company in accordance with the terms of the Plan and (b) paid for in full in accordance with the terms of the Plan, will be validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable.
This opinion letter speaks only as of the date hereof. We expressly disclaim any responsibility to advise you of any development or circumstance of any kind, including any change of law or fact that may occur after the date of this opinion letter that might affect the opinions expressed herein.
We hereby consent to the filing of this opinion as an exhibit to the Registration Statement. In giving this consent, we do not thereby concede that we come within the category of persons whose consent is required by the Securities Act or the General Rules and Regulations of the Commission promulgated thereunder.
This opinion is rendered solely to you in connection with the above matter. This opinion may not be relied upon by you for any other purpose without our prior written consent.
