Investor has been urged to seek independent advice from its professional advisors relating to the suitability of an investment in the Shares in view of its overall financial needs and with respect to the legal and tax implications of such investment. Investor believes that the investment in the Shares is suitable for it based upon its investment objectives and financial needs, and Investor has adequate means for providing for its current financial needs and contingencies and has no need for liquidity with respect to its investment in the Shares. The investment in the Shares does not constitute a significant portion of Investor’s investment portfolio.

The book-entry position representing the Shares will bear a restrictive legend relating to such restrictions. In addition, Investor understands that (i) no securities administrator of any state or the federal government has recommended or endorsed the Shares or made any finding or determination relating to the fairness of an investment in the Shares and (ii) the Company is relying on Investor’s representations and agreements for the purpose of determining whether this transaction meets the requirements of the exemptions afforded by the Securities Act and certain state securities laws.


6.5. Investment Representation. Investor is purchasing the Shares for its own account for investment and not with a view to, or for sale in connection with, any subsequent distribution of the securities, nor with any present intention of selling or otherwise disposing of all or any part of the Shares in violation of the Federal securities laws. Investor understands that, although there is a public market for the Shares, there is no assurance that such market will continue in the future.
