Ethema and each of its Subsidiaries is duly qualified and is authorized to do business and is in good standing as a foreign corporation in all jurisdictions in which the nature of its activities and of its properties (both owned and leased) makes such qualification necessary, except where the failure to be so qualified or in good standing, as the case may be, would not have or reasonably be expected to result in (i) a material adverse effect on the legality, validity or enforceability of any Subscription Document, (ii) a material adverse effect on the results of operations, assets, business or financial condition of Ethema and the Subsidiaries, taken as a whole, or (iii) adversely impair the Company’s ability to perform in any material respect on a timely basis its obligations under any Subscription Document (any of (i), (ii) or (iii), a “Material Adverse Effect”).
3.2 Corporate Power. The Company has all requisite corporate power to execute and deliver this Agreement, to issue the Note and enter into the security and pledge agreement of even date herewith (the “Security and Pledge Agreement”) in the form of Exhibit C and the other instruments, documents and agreements being entered into at the Closing (each a “Subscription Document” and collectively, the “Subscription Documents”) and to carry out and perform its obligations under the terms of the Subscription Documents.
3.3 Subsidiaries and Affiliates. Attached as Schedule 3.3 is a true and correct organizational chart showing all of Ethema’s Subsidiaries and Affiliates, pro forma as of the date hereof reflecting all pending acquisitions.

The Subscription Documents, when executed and delivered by the Company, shall constitute valid and binding obligations of the Company enforceable in accordance with their terms, subject to laws of general application relating to bankruptcy, insolvency, the relief of debtors and, with respect to rights to indemnity, subject to federal and state securities laws. The Underlying Securities, when issued in compliance with the provisions of the Subscription Documents, will be, validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable and free of any liens, encumbrances, security interests or other adverse claim (a “Lien”) and issued in compliance with all applicable federal and securities laws.
3.5 Governmental Consents. Neither Company nor any Subsidiary is required to obtain any consent, waiver, authorization or order of, give any notice to, or make any filing or registration with, any court or other foreign, federal, state, local or other governmental authority or other person in connection with the execution, delivery and performance by the Company of the Subscription Documents, other than (a) applicable Blue Sky filings, (b) such as have already been obtained or such exemptive filings as are required to be made under applicable securities laws, (c) such other filings that have been made pursuant to applicable state securities laws and post-sale filings pursuant to applicable state and federal securities laws which the Company undertakes to file within the applicable time periods.

3.6 Compliance with Laws. To the Company’s knowledge, neither Ethema nor any Subsidiary is in violation of any applicable statute, rule, regulation, order or restriction of any domestic or foreign government or any instrumentality or agency thereof in respect of the conduct of its business or the ownership of its properties, which violation would materially and adversely affect the business, assets, liabilities, financial condition or operations of Ethema and its Subsidiaries.
3.7 Compliance with Other Instruments. Neither Ethema nor any of its Subsidiaries is in violation or default of any term of its certificate of incorporation or bylaws, or of any provision of any mortgage, indenture or contract to which it is a party and by which it is bound or of any judgment, decree, order or writ, other than such violations that would not individually or in the aggregate have a Material Adverse Effect on the Company. Except as set forth on Schedule 3.7, the execution, delivery and performance of the Subscription Documents, and the consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Subscription Documents will not result in any such violation or be in conflict with, or constitute, with or without the passage of time and giving of notice, either a default under any such provision, instrument, judgment, decree, order or writ or an event that results in the creation of any Lien upon any assets of the Company or the suspension, revocation, impairment, forfeiture, or nonrenewal of any material permit, license, authorization or approval applicable to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, its business or operations or any of its assets or properties. The sale of the Note and the subsequent issuance of the Underlying Securities are not and will not be subject to any preemptive rights or rights of first refusal that have not been properly waived or complied with.
3.8 Offering. Assuming the accuracy of the representations and warranties of the Purchaser contained in Section 4 hereof, the offer, issue, and sale of Securities are and will be exempt from the registration and prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act, and have been registered or qualified (or are exempt from registration and qualification) under the registration, permit, or qualification requirements of all applicable state securities laws.

Ethema owns, directly or indirectly, all of the capital stock of each Subsidiary free and clear of any Liens, and all the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of each Subsidiary are validly issued and are fully paid, non-assessable and free of preemptive and similar rights.

“NEITHER THE ISSUANCE AND SALE OF THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE NOR THE SECURITIES INTO WHICH THESE SECURITIES ARE [CONVERTIBLE/EXERCISABLE] HAVE BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, OR APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS. THE SECURITIES MAY NOT BE OFFERED FOR SALE, SOLD, TRANSFERRED OR ASSIGNED (I) IN THE ABSENCE OF (A) AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT FOR THE SECURITIES UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, OR (B) AN OPINION OF COUNSEL (WHICH COUNSEL SHALL BE SELECTED BY THE HOLDER), IN A GENERALLY ACCEPTABLE FORM, THAT REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED UNDER SAID ACT OR (II) UNLESS SOLD PURSUANT TO RULE 144, RULE 144A OR REGULATION S UNDER SAID ACT. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, THE SECURITIES MAY BE PLEDGED IN CONNECTION WITH A BONA FIDE MARGIN ACCOUNT OR OTHER LOAN OR FINANCING ARRANGEMENT SECURED BY THE SECURITIES.”
|5.||Further Agreements; Post-Closing Covenants|
5.1 Intentionally Omitted.
5.2 Intentionally Omitted.
5.3 Use of Proceeds. Once the Note is fully funded, Ethema shall use the proceeds of sale and issuance of the Note as a down payment for an acquisition of an addiction center facility.
5.4 Form D; Blue Sky Laws. Ethema agrees to file a Form D with respect to the Securities as required under Regulation D and to provide a copy thereof to the Purchaser promptly after such filing. Ethema shall, on or before the Closing of the , take such action as Ethema shall reasonably determine is necessary to qualify the Securities for sale to the Purchaser at the applicable closing pursuant to this Agreement under applicable securities or “blue sky” laws of the states of the United States (or to obtain an exemption from such qualification), and shall provide evidence of any such action so taken to the Purchaser on or prior to the initial closing.
5.5 Most Favored Nations. If, while the Note is outstanding, Ethema or any Subsidiary issues any other security with any term reasonably believed by the Purchaser to be more favorable to the holder of such security or with a term in favor of the holder of such security that was not similarly provided to the Purchaser in the Note (“Other Securities”), the Company shall notify the Purchaser in writing of such additional or more favorable term. At the Purchaser’s option, such more favorable term or condition shall become a part of the Subscription Documents with the Purchaser. The Company will provide such notice to the Purchaser within three (3) business days following the issuance of such Other Securities. In the event the Purchaser determines that the terms of the Other Securities are preferable to the terms of the Note, the Purchaser will notify the Company in writing within five 5 days following Purchaser’s receipt of such notice from the Company. Within three (3) business days after receipt of such written notice from the Purchaser, but in any event within 10 days, the Company will amend and restate the Subscription Documents to include the more favorable term or condition and thereby grant to the Purchaser such preferential rights of the holders of such Other Securities. The types of terms contained in Other Securities that may be more favorable to the holder of such security include, but are not limited to, terms addressing conversion discounts, prepayment rate, conversion lookback periods, interest rates, original issue discounts, stock sale price, private placement price per share, and warrant coverage.
5.6 Restrictions on Activities. Commencing as of the date first above written, and so long as the Company has an obligation under the Note, the Company shall not, directly or indirectly, without the Purchaser’s prior written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld: (a) change the nature of its business; (b) sell, divest, acquire, change the structure of any material assets other than in the ordinary course of business; or (c) solicit any offers for, respond to any unsolicited offers for, or conduct any negotiations with any other person or entity in respect of any variable rate debt transactions (i.e., transactions were the conversion or exercise price of the security issued by the Company varies based on the market price of the Common Stock), whether a transaction similar to the one contemplated hereby or any other investment.
5.7 Usury. To the extent it may lawfully do so, the Company hereby agrees not to insist upon or plead or in any manner whatsoever claim, and will resist any and all efforts to be compelled to take the benefit or advantage of, usury laws wherever enacted, now or at any time hereafter in force, in connection with any action or proceeding that may be brought by the Purchaser in order to enforce any right or remedy under this Note. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary contained in this Note, it is expressly agreed and provided that the total liability of the Company under this Note for payments which under New York law are in the nature of interest shall not exceed the maximum lawful rate authorized under applicable law (the “Maximum Rate”), and, without limiting the foregoing, in no event shall any rate of interest or default interest, or both of them, when aggregated with any other sums which under New York law in the nature of interest that the Company may be obligated to pay under this Note exceed such Maximum Rate. It is agreed that if the maximum contract rate of interest allowed by New York law and applicable to this Note is increased or decreased by statute or any official governmental action subsequent to the date hereof, the new maximum contract rate of interest allowed by law will be the Maximum Rate applicable to this Note from the effective date thereof forward, unless such application is precluded by applicable law. If under any circumstances whatsoever, interest in excess of the Maximum Rate is paid by the Company to the Purchaser with respect to indebtedness evidenced by this Note, such excess shall be applied by the Purchaser to the unpaid principal balance of any such indebtedness or be refunded to the Company, the manner of handling such excess to be at the Purchaser’s election
5.8 Registration Rights.
(a) Intentionally Omitted.
(b) Piggy-Back Registration. Ethema shall give the Purchaser at least 30 days’ prior written notice of each filing by Ethema of a registration statement (other than a registration statement on Form S-4 or Form S-8 or on any successor forms thereto) with the SEC. If requested by the Purchaser in writing within 20 days after receipt of any such notice, Ethema shall, at Ethema’s sole expense (other than the underwriting discounts, if any, payable in respect of the shares sold by the Purchaser), register all or, at Purchaser’s option, any portion of the Shares concurrently with the registration of such other securities, all to the extent requisite to permit the public offering and sale of the Shares through the securities exchange, if any, on which the Common Stock is being sold or on the over-the-counter market, and will use its reasonable best efforts through its officers, directors, auditors, and counsel to cause such registration statement to become effective as promptly as practicable. If the managing underwriter of any such offering shall determine and advise Ethema that, in its opinion, the distribution of all or a portion of the Shares requested to be included in the registration concurrently with the securities being registered by Ethema would materially adversely affect the distribution of such securities by Ethema then Ethema will include in such registration first, the securities that Ethema proposes to sell and second, the Shares requested to be included in such registration, to the extent permitted by the managing underwriter.
(c) In the event of a registration pursuant to these provisions, Ethema shall use its reasonable best efforts to cause the Shares so registered to be registered or qualified for sale under the securities or blue sky laws of such jurisdictions as the Purchaser may reasonably request; provided, however, that Ethema shall not be required to qualify to do business in any state by reason of this section in which it is not otherwise required to qualify to do business.
(d) Ethema shall keep effective any registration or qualification contemplated by this section and shall from time to time amend or supplement each applicable registration statement, preliminary prospectus, final prospectus, application, document and communication for such period of time as shall be required to permit the Purchaser to complete the offer and sale of the Shares covered thereby.
(e) In the event of a registration pursuant to the provisions of this section, Ethema shall furnish to the Purchaser such reasonable number of copies of the registration statement and of each amendment and supplement thereto (in each case, including all exhibits), of each prospectus contained in such registration statement and each supplement or amendment thereto (including each preliminary prospectus), all of which shall conform to the requirements of the Act and the rules and regulations thereunder, and such other documents, as the Purchaser may reasonably request to facilitate the disposition of the Shares included in such registration.
(f) Ethema shall notify the Purchaser within three (3) business days after such registration statement has become effective or a supplement to any prospectus forming a part of such registration statement has been filed.
(g) Ethema shall advise the Purchaser within three (3) business days after it shall receive notice or obtain knowledge of the issuance of any stop order by the Commission suspending the effectiveness of such registration statement, or the initiation or threatening of any proceeding for that purpose and within three (3) business days take action using its reasonable best efforts to prevent the issuance of any stop order or to obtain its withdrawal if such stop order should be issued.
(h) Ethema shall within three (3) business days notify the Purchaser at any time when a prospectus relating thereto is required to be delivered under the Securities Act of the happening of any event as a result of which the prospectus included in such registration statement, as then in effect, would include an untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading in the light of the circumstances then existing, and at the reasonable request of the Purchaser prepare and furnish to it such number of copies of a supplement to or an amendment of such prospectus as may be necessary so that, as thereafter delivered to the purchasers of such Shares or securities, such prospectus shall not include an untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading in the light of the circumstances under which they were made. The Purchaser shall suspend all sales of the Shares upon receipt of such notice from Ethema and shall not re-commence sales until they receive copies of any necessary amendment or supplement to such prospectus, which shall be delivered to the Purchaser within 30 days of the date of such notice from Ethema.
(i) If requested by the underwriter for any underwritten offering of Shares, Ethema and the Purchaser will enter into an underwriting agreement with such underwriter for such offering, which shall be reasonably satisfactory in substance and form to Ethema, Ethema’s counsel and the Purchaser’ counsel, and the underwriter, and such agreement shall contain such representations and warranties by Ethema and the Purchaser and such other terms and provisions as are customarily contained in an underwriting agreement with respect to secondary distributions solely by selling stockholders, including, without limitation, indemnities substantially to the effect and to the extent provided below.
(j) The rights of the Purchaser under this Section 5.8 shall apply equally to the filing by Ethema of an offering statement on Form 1-A under Regulation A promulgated under the Act and, if Ethema files such an offering statement instead of a registration statement, all references to (A) registration statement shall be deemed to be references to offering statement, (B) prospectus shall be deemed to be references to offering circular, and (C) effective date of a registration statement shall be deemed to be references to qualification date of an offering statement. The Purchaser’s rights under this Section 5.8 shall automatically terminate once the Purchaser has sold all of the Shares or all of the Shares may be resold by the Purchaser under Rule 144 of the Act without limitation as to the volume of Shares to be sold.
5.9 Legal Counsel Opinions.
(a) Upon the request of the Purchaser from to time to time, Ethema shall be responsible (at its cost) for promptly supplying to Ethema’s transfer agent and the Purchaser a customary legal opinion letter of its counsel (the “Legal Counsel Opinion”) to the effect that the resale of the Underlying Securities by the Purchaser or its affiliates, successors and assigns is exempt from the registration requirements of the 1933 Act pursuant to Rule 144 (provided the requirements of Rule 144 are satisfied and provided the Underlying Securities are not then registered under the 1933 Act for resale pursuant to an effective registration statement). Should Ethema’s legal counsel fail for any reason to issue the Legal Counsel Opinion, the Purchaser may (at Ethema’s cost) secure another legal counsel to issue the Legal Counsel Opinion, and Ethema will instruct its transfer agent to accept such opinion. Ethema shall not impede the removal by its stock transfer agent of the restricted legend from any Common Stock certificate upon receipt by the transfer agent of a Rule 144 Opinion Letter. Ethema hereby agrees that it may never take the position that it is a “shell company” in connection with its obligations under this Agreement or otherwise.
5.10 Listing. Ethema will, so long as the Purchaser owns any of the Securities, maintain the listing and trading of its Common Stock on the OTC Pink or any equivalent replacement exchange or electronic quotation system and will comply in all respects with Ethema’s reporting, filing and other obligations under the bylaws or rules of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, or FINRA, and such exchanges, as applicable, as well as with the SEC. Ethema shall promptly provide to the Purchaser copies of any notices it receives from the OTC and any other exchanges or electronic quotation systems on which the Common Stock is then traded regarding the continued eligibility of the Common Stock for listing on such exchanges and quotation systems.
5.11 Information and Observer Rights
(a) As long as the Purchaser owns any Securities, Ethema covenants to timely file (or obtain extensions in respect thereof and file within the applicable grace period) all reports required to be filed by Ethema after the date hereof pursuant to the Exchange Act. As long as the Purchaser owns any Securities, if Ethema is not required to file reports pursuant to such laws, it will prepare and furnish to the Purchaser and simultaneously make publicly available in accordance with Rule 144(c) such information as is required for the Purchaser to sell the Securities under Rule 144. Ethema further covenants that it will take such further action as any holder of Securities may reasonably request, all to the extent required from time to time to enable the Purchaser to sell the Securities without registration under the Securities Act within the limitation of the exemptions provided by Rule 144. If Ethema fails to remain current in its reporting obligations or to provide currently publicly available information in accordance with Rule 144(c) and such failure extends for a period of more than five Trading Days (the date which such five Trading Day-period is exceeded, being referred to as “Event Date”), then in addition to any other rights the Purchaser may have hereunder or under applicable law, on each such Event Date and on each monthly anniversary of each such Event Date (if the applicable Event shall not have been cured by such date) until the information failure is cured, Ethema shall pay to the Purchaser an amount in cash, as partial liquidated damages and not as a penalty, equal to one percent (1.0%) of purchase price paid for the Securities held by the Purchaser at the Event Date; provided, however, that in no case will the aggregate amount of liquidated damages payable to a Purchaser pursuant to this Section 5.6 exceed ten percent (10%) of such Purchaser’s original investment pursuant to this Agreement. The partial liquidated damages pursuant to the terms hereof shall apply on a daily pro-rata basis for any portion of a month prior to the cure of an information failure (except in the case of the first Event Date).
(b) As long as the Purchaser owns any Securities, if the Purchaser notifies Ethema that it wishes to attend meetings of Ethema’s Board of Directors, Ethema shall invite a designated representative of the Purchaser to attend all meetings of Ethema’s Board of Directors in a nonvoting observer capacity and, in this respect, and subject to the Purchaser’s having informed Ethema that it wishes to attend, Ethema shall give such representative copies of all notices, minutes, consents, and other materials that it provides to its directors at the same time and in the same manner as provided to such directors; provided, however, that such representative shall agree to hold in confidence and trust and to act in a fiduciary manner with respect to all information so provided; and provided further, that Ethema reserves the right to withhold any information and to exclude such representative from any meeting or portion thereof if access to such information or attendance at such meeting could adversely affect the attorney-client privilege between Ethema and its counsel or result in disclosure of trade secrets or a conflict of interest.
5.12 Confidentiality. The Purchaser agrees that the it will keep confidential and will not disclose, divulge, or use for any purpose (other than to monitor its investment in the Company) the terms and conditions of this Agreement or any confidential information obtained from the Company pursuant to the terms of this Agreement (including notice of Ethema’s intention to file a registration statement), unless such confidential information (a) is known or becomes known to the public in general (other than as a result of a breach of this Section 5.12 by the Purchaser), (b) is or has been independently developed or conceived by the Purchaser without use of the Company’s confidential information, or (c) is or has been made known or disclosed to the Purchaser by a third party without a breach of any obligation of confidentiality such third party may have to the Company; provided, however, that the Purchaser may disclose confidential information (i) to its attorneys, accountants, consultants, and other professionals to the extent necessary to obtain their services in connection with monitoring its investment in the Company; (ii) to any prospective purchaser of any Registrable Securities from the Purchaser, if such prospective purchaser agrees to be bound by the provisions of this Section 5.12; (iii) to any existing or prospective affiliate, partner, member, stockholder, or wholly owned subsidiary of the Purchaser in the ordinary course of business, provided that the Purchaser informs such person that such information is confidential and directs such person to maintain the confidentiality of such information; or (iv) as may otherwise be required by law, provided that the Purchaser notifies the Company within three (3) business days of such disclosure and takes reasonable steps to minimize the extent of any such required disclosure.
5.13 Restrictions on Variable Rate Transactions. So long as Ethema shall have any obligation under this Note and unless approved by the Purchaser, Ethema and each Subsidiary shall not enter into an agreement to effect any sale of securities involving, or convert any securities previously issued under, a Variable Rate Transaction. The term “Variable Rate Transaction” means a transaction in which Ethema or any Subsidiary (i) issues or sells any convertible securities either (A) at a conversion, exercise or exchange rate or other price that is based upon and/or varies with the trading prices of, or quotations for, the shares of Common Stock at any time after the initial issuance of such convertible securities, or (B) with a conversion, exercise or exchange price that is subject to being reset at some future date after the initial issuance of such convertible securities or upon the occurrence of specified or contingent events directly or indirectly related to the business of Ethema or the Subsidiary, as the case may be, or the market for the Common Stock, other than pursuant to a customary “weighted average” anti-dilution provisions, or (ii) enters into any agreement (including, without limitation, an “equity line of credit” or an “at-the-market offering”) whereby Ethema or any Subsidiary may sell securities at a future determined price (other than standard and customary “preemptive” or “participation” rights). The Purchaser shall be entitled to obtain injunctive relief against Ethema and its Subsidiaries to preclude any such issuance, which remedy shall be in addition to any right to collect damages.
5.14 Participation Rights. In the event Ethema proposes to offer and sell its securities in an Equity Financing (defined below), the Purchaser shall have the right, but not the obligation, to participate in the purchase of the securities being offered in such Equity Financing up to an amount equal to the Principal Amount until the earliest of (i) the Maturity Date (as defined in the Note), (ii) the date that the Note and all accrued but unpaid interest shall have been repaid in full, and (iii) the closing date of an Equity Financing in which all, or any remaining portion, of the outstanding principal amount of the Note along with accrued but unpaid interest thereon shall have been converted, in full, into, and on the same terms as, the securities being offered in such Equity Financing (the “Participation Right”). For the avoidance of doubt, an Equity Financing shall mean Ethema’s sale of its Common Stock or any securities conferring the right to purchase Ethema’s Common Stock or securities convertible into, or exchangeable for (with or without additional consideration), Ethema’s Common Stock. In connection with each Participation Right, Ethema shall provide written notice to the Purchaser of the terms and conditions of the Equity Financing at least ten business days prior to the anticipated first closing of such Equity Financing (the “EF Notice”). If the Purchaser shall elect to exercise its Participation Right, it shall notify Ethema, in writing, of such election at least two business days prior to the anticipated closing date set forth in the EF Notice (the “Participation Notice”). In the event the Purchaser does not return a Participation Notice to Ethema within such two-business day period, the Participation Right granted hereunder shall terminate and be of no further force and effect; provided, however, that such Participation Right shall be reinstated if the anticipated closing referenced in the EF Notice does not occur prior to ten business days following the anticipated first closing date specified in such EF notice.
5.15 Breach of Covenants. The Company acknowledges and agrees that if the Company breaches any of the covenants set forth in this Section 5, in addition to any other remedies available to the Buyer pursuant to this Agreement, it will be considered an Event of Default under Section 4.3 of the Note.
5.16 Transfer Agent Instructions. Ethema shall issue irrevocable instructions to Ethema’s transfer agent to issue certificates, registered in the name of the Purchaser or its nominee, upon conversion of the Note, the Underlying Securities, in such amounts as specified from time to time by the Purchaser to Ethema in accordance with the terms thereof (the “Irrevocable Transfer Agent Instructions”). In the event that Ethema proposes to replace its transfer agent, Ethema shall provide, prior to the effective date of such replacement, a fully executed Irrevocable Transfer Agent Instructions in a form as initially delivered pursuant to this Agreement (including but not limited to the provision to irrevocably reserved shares of Common Stock in the Reserved Amount (as defined in the Note)) signed by the successor transfer agent to Ethema and Ethema. Prior to registration of the Underlying Securities under the Securities Act or the date on which the Underlying Securities may be sold pursuant to Rule 144 without any restriction as to the number of Securities as of a particular date that can then be immediately sold, all such certificates shall bear the restrictive legend specified in Section 4.9 of this Agreement. Ethema warrants that: (i) no instruction other than the Irrevocable Transfer Agent Instructions referred to in this Section 5.16 will be given by Ethema to its transfer agent and that the Securities shall otherwise be freely transferable on the books and records of Ethema as and to the extent provided in this Agreement and the Note; (ii) it will not direct its transfer agent not to transfer or delay, impair, and/or hinder its transfer agent in transferring (or issuing)(electronically or in certificated form) any certificate for Securities to be issued to the Purchaser upon conversion of or otherwise pursuant to the Note as and when required by the Note and this Agreement; (iii) it will not fail to remove (or directs its transfer agent not to remove or impairs, delays, and/or hinders its transfer agent from removing) any restrictive legend (or to withdraw any stop transfer instructions in respect thereof) on any certificate for any Securities issued to the Purchaser upon conversion of or otherwise pursuant to the Note as and when required by the Note and this Agreement and (iv) it will provide any required corporate resolutions and issuance approvals to its transfer agent within 6 hours of each conversion of the Note. Nothing in this Section shall affect in any way the Purchaser’s obligations and agreement set forth in Section 4.9 hereof to comply with all applicable prospectus delivery requirements, if any, upon re-sale of the Securities. If the Purchaser provides Ethema, at the cost of Ethema, with (i) an opinion of counsel in form, substance and scope customary for opinions in comparable transactions, to the effect that a public sale or transfer of such Securities may be made without registration under the 1933 Act and such sale or transfer is effected or (ii) the Purchaser provides reasonable assurances that the Securities can be sold pursuant to Rule 144, Ethema shall permit the transfer, and, in the case of the Securities, promptly instruct its transfer agent to issue one or more certificates, free from restrictive legend, in such name and in such denominations as specified by the Purchaser. Ethema acknowledges that a breach by it of its obligations hereunder will cause irreparable harm to the Purchaser, by vitiating the intent and purpose of the transactions contemplated hereby. Accordingly, Ethema acknowledges that the remedy at law for a breach of its obligations under this Section 5.16 may be inadequate and agrees, in the event of a breach or threatened breach by Ethema of the provisions of this Section, that the Purchaser shall be entitled, in addition to all other available remedies, to an injunction restraining any breach and requiring immediate transfer, without the necessity of showing economic loss and without any bond or other security being required.
5.17 Further Assurances. The Purchaser agrees and covenants that at any time and from time to time it will execute and deliver to the Company such further instruments and documents and take such further action as the Company may reasonably require within three (3) business days of any such request in order to carry out the full intent and purpose of this Agreement and to comply with state or federal securities laws or other regulatory approvals.
