4.1           No Registration. The Purchaser understands that the Shares and the Conversion Shares, have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act by reason of reliance on an exemption specified in Regulation D 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 Purchaser’s representations as expressed herein or otherwise made pursuant hereto. Purchaser further understands that the Shares have not been registered under applicable state securities laws and are being offered and sold pursuant to the exemptions specified in said laws and, unless they are registered, may not be re-offered for sale or resold except in a transaction or as a security exempt under those laws.

 

4.2           Investment Intent. The Purchaser is acquiring the Shares, and the Conversion Shares, for investment for its own account, not as a nominee or agent, and not with the view to, or for immediate resale in connection with, any distribution thereof, and that the Purchaser has no present intention of selling, granting any participation in, or otherwise distributing the same. The Purchaser further represents that it does not have any contract, undertaking, agreement or arrangement with any person or entity to sell, transfer or grant participation to such person or entity or to any third person or entity with respect to any of the Shares or the Conversion Shares.

The Purchaser can bear the economic risk of the Purchaser’s investment and is able, without impairing the Purchaser’s financial condition, to hold the Shares and the Conversion Shares for an indefinite period of time and to suffer a complete loss of the Purchaser’s investment.

The Purchaser believes that it has received all the information the Purchaser considers necessary or appropriate for deciding whether to purchase the Shares and the Conversion Shares. Purchaser acknowledges that except as set forth herein and in the SEC Filings, no representations or warranties have been made to Purchaser, or to Purchaser’s advisors or representative, by the Company or others with respect to the business or prospects of the Company or its financial condition.

 

4.6           No Public Market. The Purchaser understands and acknowledges that no public market now exists for any of the securities issued by the Company and that the Company has no obligation to list the Shares on any market or take any steps (including registration under the Securities Act or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) with respect to facilitating trading or resale of the Shares.

(c)          No consent, approval, authorization, order, filing, registration or qualification of or with any court, governmental authority or third person is required to be obtained by the Purchaser in connection with the execution and delivery of this Agreement by the Purchaser or the performance of the Purchaser’s obligations hereunder.
