(b)

Seller has the ability to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby; that this Agreement has been duly authorized, duly executed and validly delivered by the Seller and that this Agreement is the valid and binding obligation of Seller, enforceable against Seller in accordance with its terms, except as such enforcement may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other similar laws now or hereafter in effect, or by legal or equitable principles, relating to or limiting creditors' rights generally and except that the remedy of specific performance and injunctive and other  forms of equitable relief are subject to certain equitable defenses and to the discretion of the court before which any proceeding therefor may be brought.

(e)

(h)

The execution and delivery by Seller of this Agreement, the sale by Seller of the Note and the Shares and the performance by Seller of its obligations under this Agreement do not and will not violate or conflict with any law applicable to Seller, any order or judgment of any court or other agency of government applicable to Seller or any of Seller’s assets or any contractual restriction binding on or affecting Seller or any of Seller’s assets.


(i)

4.
