EXHIBIT B
Representations and Warranties of the Lender
The Lender hereby represents and warrants to, and agrees with, the Borrower that:
1. Authorization. The Lender has full power and authority necessary for (a) the authorization, execution and delivery of the Note, and (b) the authorization of the performance of all obligations of the Lender hereunder. The Note constitutes the legal, valid and binding obligation of the Lender, enforceable against the Lender in accordance with its terms, subject to bankruptcy, insolvency, fraudulent transfer, reorganization, moratorium and similar laws of general applicability, relating to or affecting creditors’ rights generally and to general equitable principles and except as rights to indemnity and contribution may be limited by state or federal securities laws or public policy.
2. Purchase Entirely for Own Account. This Note is made with the Lender in reliance upon the Lender’s representation to the Borrower that the Note to be acquired by the Lender will be acquired for investment for the Lender’s own account, not as a nominee or agent, and not with a view to the resale or distribution of any part thereof, and that the Lender has no present intention of selling, granting any participation in, or otherwise distributing the same. By executing this Note, the Lender further represents that the Lender does not presently have any contract, undertaking, agreement or arrangement with any Person to sell, transfer or grant participations to such Person or to any third Person, with respect to the Note. The Lender has not been formed for the specific purpose of acquiring the Note.
3. Disclosure of Information. The Lender is an affiliate of the Borrower, and has had a full opportunity to discuss the Borrower’s business, management, financial affairs and the terms and conditions of the offering of the Note with the Borrower's management and Board of Directors. The foregoing, however, does not limit or modify the representations and warranties of the Borrower in Exhibit A to this Note or the right of the Lender to rely thereon.
4. Restricted Securities. The Lender understands that the Note has 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 which depends upon, among other things, the bona fide nature of the investment intent and the accuracy of the Lender’s representations as expressed herein. The Lender understands that the Note is a “restricted security” under applicable U.S. federal and state securities laws and that, pursuant to these laws, the Lender must hold the Note indefinitely unless it is registered with the SEC and qualified by state authorities, or an exemption from such registration and qualification requirements is available. The Lender acknowledges that the Borrower has no obligation to register or qualify the Note for resale. The Lender further acknowledges that if an exemption from registration or qualification is available, it may be conditioned on various requirements including, but not limited to, the time and manner of sale, and on requirements relating to the Borrower which are outside of the Lender’s control, and which the Borrower is under no obligation and may not be able to satisfy.
5. Legends. The Lender understands that the Note, including any securities issued in respect of or exchange for the Note, may bear one or all of the following legends:



(a) “THESE SECURITIES HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AND HAVE BEEN ACQUIRED FOR INVESTMENT AND NOT WITH A VIEW TO, OR IN CONNECTION WITH, THE SALE OR DISTRIBUTION THEREOF. NO SUCH TRANSFER MAY BE EFFECTED WITHOUT AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT RELATED THERETO OR AN OPINION OF COUNSEL IN A FORM SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY THAT SUCH REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933.”
(b) Any legend required by the federal securities laws or the securities laws of any state to the extent such laws are applicable to the Note represented by the certificate so legended.
Accredited Lender. The Lender is an accredited investor as defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act.
No Disqualification Event. With respect to the Note, neither the Lender nor any of its directors, executive officers, other officers is subject to any of the “Bad Actor” disqualifications described in Rule 506(d)(1)(i) to (viii) promulgated under the Securities Act.
No General Solicitation. Neither the Lender, nor any of the Lender’s officers, directors, employees, agents, stockholders or partners has either directly or indirectly, including through a broker or finder (a) engaged in any general solicitation, or (b) published any advertisement in connection with the offer and sale of the Notes.
Short Sales. Between the time Lender learned about the offering contemplated by the Note and the public announcement of the offering, Lender has not engaged in any short sales or similar transactions with respect to the capital stock of Borrower, nor has Lender, directly or indirectly, caused any Person to engage in any short sales or similar transactions with respect to the capital stock of Borrower. Lender shall not engage in any short sales involving the capital stock of Borrower in violation of the Securities Act. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the case of a Lender that is a multi-managed investment vehicle whereby separate portfolio managers manage separate portions of Lender’s assets and the portfolio managers have no direct knowledge of the investment decisions made by the portfolio managers managing other portions of Lender’s assets, the representation set forth above shall apply only with respect to the portion of assets managed by the portfolio managers that have knowledge about the financing transaction contemplated by the Note.
Residency.  Lender is a resident of that jurisdiction specified in the Note and is not acquiring the Shares as a nominee or agent or otherwise for any other person.
Brokers.  There is no broker, investment banker, financial advisor, finder or other Person which has been retained by or is authorized to act on behalf of Lender who might be entitled to any fee or commission for which the Borrower will be liable in connection with the execution of this Agreement and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby.
