|4.||Representations and Warranties of the Investors.|
a. Purchase Entirely for Own Account. The Investor acknowledges that this Note is made with the Investor in reliance upon the Investor’s representation to the Company, which the Investor hereby confirms by executing this Note, that this Note and the Conversion Shares (collectively, the “Securities”) will be acquired for investment for the Investor’s own account, not as a nominee or agent (unless otherwise specified on the Investor’s signature page hereto), and not with a view to the resale or distribution of any part thereof, and that the Investor has no present intention of selling, granting any participation in, or otherwise distributing the same. By executing this Note, the Investor further represents that the Investor does not have any contract, undertaking, agreement or arrangement with any person to sell, transfer or grant participations to such person or to any third person, with respect to the Securities. If other than an individual, the Investor also represents it has not been organized solely for the purpose of acquiring the Securities.
b. Disclosure of Information; Non-Reliance. The Investor acknowledges that it has received all the information it considers necessary or appropriate to enable it to make an informed decision concerning an investment in the Securities. The Investor further represents that it has had an opportunity to ask questions and receive answers from the Company regarding the terms and conditions of the offering of the Securities. The Investor confirms that the Company has not given any guarantee or representation as to the potential success, return, effect or benefit (either legal, regulatory, tax, financial, accounting or otherwise) of an investment in the Securities. In deciding to purchase the Securities, the Investor is not relying on the advice or recommendations of the Company and has made its own independent decision that the investment in the Securities is suitable and appropriate for the Investor. The Investor understands that no federal or state agency has passed upon the merits or risks of an investment in the Securities or made any finding or determination concerning the fairness or advisability of this investment.
c. Investment Experience. The Investor is an investor in securities of companies in the development stage and acknowledges that it is able to fend for itself, can bear the economic risk of its investment and has such knowledge and experience in financial or business matters that it is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of the investment in the Securities.
d. Accredited Investor. The Investor is an “accredited investor” within the meaning of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act. The Investor agrees to furnish any additional information requested by the Company or any of its affiliates to assure compliance with applicable U.S. federal and state securities laws in connection with the purchase and sale of the Securities.
e. Restricted Securities. The Investor understands that the Securities have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act or state securities laws, by reason of specific exemptions from the registration provisions thereof which depend upon, among other things, the bona fide nature of the investment intent and the accuracy of the Investor’s representations as expressed herein. The Investor understands that the Securities are “restricted securities” under U.S. federal and applicable state securities laws and that, pursuant to these laws, the Investor must hold the Securities indefinitely unless they are registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission and registered or qualified by state authorities, or an exemption from such registration and qualification requirements is available. The Investor acknowledges that the Company has no obligation to register or qualify the Securities for resale and 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 Securities, and on requirements relating to the Company which are outside of the Investor’s control, and which the Company is under no obligation, and may not be able, to satisfy.
f. No Public Market. The Investor understands that no public market now exists for the Securities and that the Company has made no assurances that a public market will ever exist for the Securities.
g. No General Solicitation. The Investor, and its officers, directors, employees, agents, stockholders or partners have not either directly or indirectly, including through a broker or finder solicited offers for or offered or sold the Securities by means of any form of general solicitation or general advertising within the meaning of Rule 502 of Regulation D under the Securities Act or in any manner involving a public offering within the meaning of Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act. The Investor acknowledges that neither the Company nor any other person offered to sell the Securities to it by means of any form of general solicitation or advertising within the meaning of Rule 502 of Regulation D under the Securities Act or in any manner involving a public offering within the meaning of Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act.
5. Limitations on Disposition. Without in any way limiting the representations set forth above, each Investor agrees not to make any disposition of all or any portion of the applicable Notes unless and until (i) there is then in effect an effective registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), covering such proposed disposition and such disposition is made in accordance with such registration statement; or (ii) an exemption to registration under the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws is available. Each Investor further understands and agrees that, until so registered or transferred pursuant to the provisions of Rule 144 under the Securities Act, the Notes, whether upon initial issuance or upon any transfer thereof, shall bear a legend, prominently stamped or printed thereon, reading substantially as follows:

IF THE OBLIGATION TO TRANSFER DESCRIBED IN THE PRECEDING SENTENCE IS NOT MET, THE ISSUER HEREOF IS IRREVOCABLY AUTHORIZED, WITHOUT ANY OBLIGATION, TO TRANSFER THIS SECURITY OR THE APPLICABLE BENEFICIAL INTEREST HEREIN IN A MANNER CONSISTENT WITH THE RESTRICTIONS SET FORTH IN THIS PARAGRAPH AND, IF THIS SECURITY OR SUCH BENEFICIAL INTEREST HEREIN IS SOLD, THE ISSUER HEREOF SHALL DISTRIBUTE THE NET PROCEEDS OF SUCH SALE TO THE ENTITLED PERSON.
