(b) The execution and delivery by the Parties of this Agreement and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby do not and shall not, by the lapse of time, the giving of notice or otherwise: (a) constitute a violation of any law; or (b) constitute a breach or violation of any provision contained in the document(s) regarding organization and/or management of the Parties, if applicable; or (c) constitute a breach of any provision contained in, or a default under, any governmental approval, any writ, injunction, order, judgment or decree of any governmental authority or any contract to which either the Company or the Creditor are a party or by which either the Company or the Creditor are bound or affected.

4. Representations of Creditor.

 

The Creditor represents to the Company that:

 

(a) Creditor is acquiring the Shares for his own account, for investment purposes only and not with a view to, or for sale in connection with, a distribution, as that term is used in Section 2(11) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act,” or the “Act”) in a manner which would require registration under the Securities Act or any state securities laws. Creditor can bear the economic risk of investment in the Shares, has knowledge and experience in financial business matters, is capable of bearing and managing the risk of investment in the applicable Shares and is an “accredited investor” as defined in Regulation D under the Securities Act. Creditor recognizes that the applicable Shares are not registered under the Securities Act, nor under the securities laws of any state and, therefore, cannot be resold unless the resale of the applicable Shares is registered under the Securities Act or unless an exemption from registration is available.
