3.14          The execution and delivery of this Agreement, the consummation of the transactions contemplated thereby and hereby and the performance of the obligations thereunder and hereunder will not conflict with or result in any violation of or default under any provision of any other agreement or instrument to which the Subscriber is a party or any license, permit, franchise, judgment, order, writ or decree, or any statute, rule or regulation, applicable to the Subscriber.

3.18          The Subscriber acknowledges that the Purchase Price per Common Share to be sold in this offering was set by Emerald Pharmaceuticals on the basis of Emerald Pharmaceuticals’ internal valuation and no warranties are made as to value. The Subscriber further acknowledges that future offerings of securities of Emerald Pharmaceuticals may be made at lower valuations, with the result that the Subscriber’s investment will bear a lower valuation.

4.            Indemnification. The representations, warranties and covenants made by the Subscriber herein shall survive the closing of the Purchase.

In the event that the Subscriber files or enters bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar proceeding, the Subscriber agrees to use its best efforts to avoid Emerald Pharmaceuticals being named as a party or otherwise involved in the bankruptcy proceeding. Furthermore, this Agreement should be interpreted so as to prevent, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, any bankruptcy trustee, receiver or debtor-in-possession from asserting, requiring or seeking that (i) the Subscriber be allowed by Emerald Pharmaceuticals to return the Common Shares to Emerald Pharmaceuticals for a refund or (ii) Emerald Pharmaceuticals be mandated or ordered to redeem or withdraw Common Shares held or owned by the Subscriber.

7.             Legends. It is understood that the certificates evidencing the Securities may bear any legend required by the Bylaws of the Company or applicable state securities laws.
