5.1     Each Investor has all requisite legal and other power and authority to execute and deliver this Agreement and to carry out and perform its obligations under the terms of this Agreement. This Agreement constitutes a valid and legally binding obligation of each Investor enforceable in accordance with its terms, subject as to enforcement, to bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization and other laws of general applicability relating to or affecting creditors’ rights and to general equity principles.

 

5.2     Each Investor owns all right, title and interest in and to its respective Claims, if any, and has not sold, assigned or otherwise transferred to any third party any interest it may have in any of such Claims, respectively.

 

5.3     The New Warrants and the shares of the Company’s common stock issuable upon exercise of the New Warrants (collectively with the New Warrants, the “Securities”) are being acquired for investment for each Investor’s own account, not as a nominee or agent and not with a view to the resale or distribution of any part thereof.

 

5.4     Each Investor has had an opportunity to ask questions and receive answers and other information from the Company regarding the terms and conditions of the Securities and the business, properties, prospects, financial condition, and results of operations of the Company, and each Investor has received sufficient information on which to make an investment decision.

 

5.5     Each Investor is an “accredited investor” within the meaning of Rule 501 of Regulation D promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).

 

5.6     Each Investor understands that the purchase of the Securities involves substantial risk. Each Investor is a sophisticated and accredited investor and acknowledges that it can bear the economic risk of its investment and has such knowledge and experience in financial or business matters that it is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of its investment in the Securities. Each Investor has not been organized for the purpose of acquiring the Securities.

 

5.7     Each Investor understands that:

 

(i)      the Securities are characterized as “restricted securities” under the U.S. federal securities laws inasmuch as they are being acquired from the Company in a transaction not involving a public offering and that under such laws and applicable regulations such securities may be resold without registration under the Securities Act only in certain limited circumstances;

 

(ii)      the Securities have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and are being offered in reliance upon specific exemptions from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and state securities laws, and the Company is relying upon the truth and accuracy of, and Investor’s compliance with, the representations, warranties, covenants, agreements, acknowledgments and understandings of each Investor contained in this Agreement in order to determine the availability of such exemptions and the eligibility of each Investor to acquire the Securities;

 

4
 

 

(iii)      the Securities must be held indefinitely unless a subsequent disposition thereof is registered under the Securities Act or is exempt from such registration;

 

(iv)      the Securities will bear a legend substantially in the form set forth in Section 5(k) herein; and

 

(v)      the Company will make a notation on its transfer books to such effect.

 

5.8     Each Investor understands that (i) the sale or resale of the Securities has not been and is not being registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws, and the Securities may not be transferred unless: (A) such Investor shall have delivered to the Company an opinion of Company counsel (which opinion shall be in form, substance and scope customary for opinions of counsel in comparable transactions) to the effect that the Securities to be sold or transferred may be sold or transferred pursuant to an exemption from such registration; or (B) sold under and in compliance with Rule 144, as promulgated under the Securities Act (or a successor rule).

 

5.9     Investor understands that the certificates evidencing the Securities will bear a legend substantially similar to the following, as well as any other legends required by applicable law:

 

NEITHER THE ISSUANCE AND SALE OF THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE NOR THE SECURITIES INTO WHICH THESE SECURITIES ARE EXERCISABLE HAVE BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, OR APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS. THE SECURITIES MAY NOT BE OFFERED FOR SALE, SOLD, TRANSFERRED OR ASSIGNED (I) IN THE ABSENCE OF (A) AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT FOR THE SECURITIES UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, OR (B) AN OPINION OF COUNSEL SELECTED BY THE HOLDER, IN A GENERALLY ACCEPTABLE FORM, THAT REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED UNDER SAID ACT OR (II) UNLESS SOLD PURSUANT TO RULE 144 OR RULE 144A UNDER SAID ACT. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, THE SECURITIES MAY BE PLEDGED IN CONNECTION WITH A BONA FIDE MARGIN ACCOUNT OR OTHER LOAN OR FINANCING ARRANGEMENT SECURED BY THE SECURITIES.

 

5.10     Each Investor further understands that there are no registration rights associated with the Securities being acquired pursuant to this Agreement.

 

5.11     The representations and warranties and statements of fact made by each Investor in this Agreement are, as applicable, accurate, correct and complete and do not contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact necessary in order to make the statements and information contained herein not false or misleading.

6.8     The offer and sale of the Securities to the Investors as contemplated hereby is exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act.

Each Party further agrees that it will not, and will cause its respective officers, directors, employees, agents, representatives, and subsidiaries not to, directly or indirectly, whether orally or in writing, make any statements or representations to any third party (i) that the other Party was liable or admitted any liability in connection with the matters covered by this Agreement, and (ii) regarding the subject matter of this Agreement, including, but not limited to, any and all discussions preceding the negotiation and execution of this Agreement, except that either Party may disclose the existence of this Agreement and may also disclose the specific terms set forth herein as may be required pursuant to applicable law, including, but not limited to, the applicable rules and regulations of the SEC.  Each of the Parties hereto hereby further warrants that it has not previously assigned, transferred or granted, or purported to assign, transfer or grant, any Claim, matter, or cause of action which is being released herein.

7.11     Specific Performance. The Parties agree that irreparable damage would occur in the event that any provision of this Agreement were not performed in accordance with its specific terms or were otherwise breached, and that money damages or other remedies at law would not be an adequate remedy for any such damages.

This Agreement, to the extent delivered by means of a facsimile machine or electronic mail (any such delivery, an “Electronic Delivery”), shall be treated in all manner and respects as an original agreement or instrument and shall be considered to have the same binding legal effect as if it were the original signed version thereof delivered in person. No party hereto shall raise the use of Electronic Delivery to deliver a signature or the fact that any signature or agreement or instrument was transmitted or communicated through the use of Electronic Delivery as a defense to the formation of a contract, and each such party forever waives any such defense, except to the extent such defense related to lack of authenticity.
