(d)               Such Holder has knowledge and experience in financial and business matters and is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of an investment in the Conversion Stock and the suitability of the investment for such Holder.

(l)                 There is no judgment, decree or order against the Holder that could prevent, enjoin, alter or delay any of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

 

(m)             There are no material claims, actions, suits, proceedings, inquiries, labor disputes or investigations pending or, to the Holder’s knowledge, threatened against the Holder or any of its assets, at law or in equity or by or before any governmental entity or in arbitration or mediation.
