RECITALS

 

WHEREAS, the Purchaser has provided, management services to the Company (the “Services”) pursuant to that certain Amended and Restated Management Services Agreement, dated November 2, 2016 (the “Services Agreement”) between the Purchaser and the Company, and, in consideration for the Services in connection with the signing bonus set forth on Schedule A to the Services Agreement (the “Signing Bonus”), the Company desires to issue and sell the Restricted Shares (as defined in Section 1 below) to the Purchaser, and the Purchaser desires to purchase the Restricted Shares from the Company; and

 

NOW THEREFORE, the Company and Purchaser agree as follows:

 

1. Sale of Restricted Shares. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, on the Purchase Date (as defined below) the Company will issue and sell to Purchaser, and Purchaser agrees to purchase from the Company, 31,200,000 unregistered shares of the Company’s Common Stock (the “Restricted Shares”) at a purchase price of $31,200 (the “Signing Bonus”) or $0.001 per Share. The term “Restricted Shares” refers to the purchased Restricted Shares and all securities received in replacement of or in connection with the Restricted Shares pursuant to stock dividends or splits, all securities received in replacement of the Restricted Shares in a recapitalization, merger, reorganization, exchange or the like, and all new, substituted or additional securities or other properties to which Purchaser is entitled by reason of Purchaser’s ownership of the Restricted Shares.

 

2. Purchase. The purchase and sale of the Shares under this Agreement shall occur at the principal office of the Company simultaneously with the execution of this Agreement by the parties or on such other date as the Company and Purchaser shall agree (the “Purchase Date”). The parties have agreed that the Services rendered by Purchaser on or prior to the date hereof (the “Past Services”) have a value equal to the aggregate purchase price of the Shares. On the Purchase Date, the Company will issue shares as book entry and at the earliest practicable date deliver to Purchaser a certificate representing the Shares to be purchased by Purchaser (which shall be issued in Purchaser’s name) and the Purchaser shall agree that such Shares shall constitute full payment for the Past Services.

 

3. Investment and Taxation Representations. In connection with the purchase of the Restricted Shares, Purchaser represents to the Company the following:

 

   
 

 

(a) Purchaser is aware of the Company’s business affairs and financial condition and has acquired sufficient information about the Company to reach an informed and knowledgeable decision to acquire the Restricted Shares. Purchaser is purchasing the Restricted Shares for investment for its own account only and not with a view to, or for resale in connection with, any “distribution” thereof within the meaning of the Securities Act.

 

(b) Purchaser understands that the Restricted Shares have not been registered under the Securities Act by reason of a specific exemption therefrom, which exemption depends upon, among other things, the bona fide nature of Purchaser’s investment intent as expressed herein.

 

(c) Purchaser understands that the Restricted Shares are “restricted securities” under applicable U.S. federal and state securities laws and that, pursuant to these laws, Purchaser must hold the Restricted Shares indefinitely unless they are registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission and qualified by state authorities, or an exemption from such registration and qualification requirements is available. Purchaser acknowledges that the Company has no obligation to register or qualify the Restricted Shares for resale. Purchaser 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, the holding period for the Restricted Shares, and requirements relating to the Company which are outside of the Purchaser’s control, and which the Company is under no obligation and may not be able to satisfy.

 

(d) Purchaser understands that Purchaser may suffer adverse tax consequences as a result of Purchaser’s purchase or disposition of the Restricted Shares. Purchaser represents that Purchaser has consulted any tax consultants Purchaser deems advisable in connection with the purchase or disposition of the Restricted Shares and that Purchaser is not relying on the Company for any tax advice.

 

4. Restrictive Legends and Stop-Transfer Orders.

 

(a) Legends. The certificate or certificates representing the Restricted Shares shall bear the following legends (as well as any legends required by applicable state and federal corporate and securities laws):

(b) Stop-Transfer Notices. Purchaser agrees that, in order to ensure compliance with the restrictions referred to herein, the Company may issue appropriate “stop transfer” instructions to its transfer agent, if any, and that, if the Company transfers its own securities, it may make appropriate notations to the same effect in its own records.

 

(c) Refusal to Transfer. The Company shall not be required (i) to transfer on its books any Restricted Shares that have been sold or otherwise transferred in violation of any of the provisions of this Agreement or (ii) to treat as owner of such Restricted Shares or to accord the right to vote or pay dividends to any purchaser or other transferee to whom such Restricted Shares shall have been so transferred.
