The Subscriber understands that the Shares have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act by reason of a specific exemption from the registration provisions of the Securities Act, the availability of which depends upon, among other things, the bona fide nature of the investment intent and the accuracy of the Subscriber’s representations as expressed herein. The Subscriber understands that no public market now exists for any of the securities issued by the Corporation and that the Corporation has made no assurances that a public market will ever exist for the Corporation’s securities.
