2.3 The Subscriber acknowledges that he/she/it (a) has obtained access to and reviewed the Company’s most recent SEC filings, including without limitation its annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018 and all subsequent quarterly and current reports on Form 10-Q and 8-K respectively (all of which are hereby incorporated by reference as if set forth herein in their entirety), and understands the contents thereof including without limitation any risk factors and other risk-related disclosures included therein, (b) has received copies of all documents and any other information requested by Subscriber from the Company and had an opportunity to ask questions of and receive answers from Company management concerning the Company as well as the terms and conditions of the Offering, and (c) is fully informed regarding the current operations and financial condition of the Company, the administration of its business affairs, and its prospects for the future
2.4 The Subscriber acknowledges that this Offering may involve tax consequences and that he/she/it (a) has received no opinions or representations from the Company in respect of same, and (b) has been advised to retain his/her/its own professional advisors to evaluate the tax and other consequences of an investment in the Subject Securities.
2.5 The Subscriber acknowledges that he/she/it (a) has not been the subject of any general solicitation, including any advertising, by the Company, and (b) is unaware of any general solicitation, including any advertising, by the Company in connection with the Offering or otherwise in relation to the sale of the Subject Securities.
2.6 The Subscriber acknowledges that the purchase price for the Subject Securities has been established based on a valuation for the Company which bears no relationship to the assets or book value of the Company, or any other customary valuation criteria.
2.7 The Subscriber acknowledges that (a) the Offering has not been reviewed by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) based on the Company’s representations that it is intended to be a nonpublic offering made pursuant to exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act, including those under Section 4(a)(2) thereof and Regulation D, (b) any potential resale or other transfer by the Subscriber (or any other holder) of the Subject Securities, or any part thereof, has not been, and is not currently expected by the Company to be, registered under the Securities Act, or the securities laws of any one or more states, (c) the Subject Securities are being purchased for investment purposes and not with a view to any near-term distribution or resale, nor with the intention of selling, transferring or otherwise disposing of all or any part for any particular price, or at any particular time, or upon the happening of any particular event or circumstances, except selling, transferring or disposing of such securities in full compliance with all applicable provisions of the Securities Act, the rules and regulations promulgated by the SEC thereunder or in connection therewith, and applicable state securities laws, and (d) absent any such resale registration, or the availability of an exemption from registration coupled with the proffer of a formal, written opinion of counsel satisfactory to the Company stating that registration is not required under the Securities Act or such state securities laws, each of the Subject Securities will be required to be held indefinitely.
2.8 The Subscriber acknowledges that the certificates to be issued representing the Subject Securities shall bear a legend containing the following or similar words:
“THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “ACT”) OR ANY OTHER SECURITIES LAWS. THESE SECURITIES MAY NOT BE TRANSFERRED, SOLD OR OTHERWISE DISPOSED OF, OR OFFERED FOR TRANSFER, SALE OR OTHER DISPOSITION IN THE ABSENCE OF (i) AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT COVERING SUCH SECURITIES UNDER THE ACT, AND ANY OTHER APPLICABLE SECURITIES LAWS, OR (ii) AN OPINION OF COUNSEL FOR THE COMPANY THAT A PROPOSED SALE QUALIFIES FOR EXEMPTION FROM REGISTRATION UNDER THE ACT AND ANY OTHER APPLICABLE SECURITIES LAWS”.
2.9 The Subscriber acknowledges his/her/its understanding that (a) neither the Subject Securities nor any of the Preferred Stock for which it is exercisable nor any Common Stock into which the Preferred Stock is convertible have been registered under the Securities Act by reason of a claimed exemption under the provisions of the Securities Act which depends, in part, upon his/her/its investment intention, (b) it is the position of the SEC that the statutory basis for such exemption would not be present if his/her/its representation merely meant that his/her/its present intention was to hold such securities for a short period, such as the capital gains period under any tax statutes, for a deferred sale, for a market rise (assuming that a market is maintained, for which no assurance can be provided), or for any other fixed period, and (c) in the view of the SEC, a purchase now with an intent to resell would represent a purchase with an intent inconsistent with his/her/its representation to the Company, and the SEC would likely regard such a sale or disposition as a deferred sale to which such exemptions are not available.
2.10 The Subscriber understands that (a) there is currently a very limited public trading market for the Common Stock, (b) the Common Stock constitutes a “penny stock” for purposes of applicable regulation, (c) Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act (“Rule 144”), which provides a “safe harbor” exemption from registration for the resale of certain securities under limited circumstances, currently requires, among other conditions, a minimum six (6) month holding period prior to any resale of any common stock acquired in a non-public offering (such as the Offering) when such common stock is registered as a class under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the issuing company thereof is subject to and current in meeting its reporting obligations thereunder (as the Company is as of the date hereof), (d) the Company is under no obligation to register the resale of any of the Subject Securities, and (e) the Company may, if it determines appropriate in its discretion, permit the transfer of any of the Subject Securities out of its name only if and when any such transfer is registered or when it is determined by the Company to qualify for exemption and any request therefor is accompanied by a formal, written opinion of counsel acceptable to the Company that neither the sale nor the proposed transfer results in a violation of the Securities Act and/or of the applicable securities laws of any individual state or other applicable jurisdiction.
2.11 The Subscriber hereby agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Company, and each of its officers, directors, agents and attorneys against any and all losses, claims, demands, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable legal or other expenses as such are incurred) incurred by each such person in connection with defending or investigating any claims or liabilities, whether or not resulting in any liability to such person to which any such indemnified party may become subject under the Securities Act, under any other statute, at common law or otherwise, insofar as such losses, claims, demands, liabilities and expenses (a) arise out of or are based upon any untrue statement or not unreasonably alleged untrue statement of the Subscriber of a material fact contained in this Agreement or the Prospective Investor Questionnaire, or (b) arise out of or are based upon any breach of any representation, warranty or agreement of the Subscriber contained herein.
2.12 The Subscriber hereby represents that the address furnished at the end of this Agreement is the address of Subscriber’s principal residence, if an individual, and principal place of business, if an entity.
2.13 If the Subscriber is not a United States person, such Subscriber hereby represents and warrants that (a) it has satisfied itself as to the full observance of the laws of its jurisdiction in connection with any invitation to subscribe for the Subject Securities or any use of this Agreement, including (i) the legal requirements within its jurisdiction for the purchase of the Subject Securities, (ii) any foreign exchange restrictions applicable to such purchase, (iii) any governmental or other consents that may need to be obtained, and (iv) the income tax and other tax consequences, if any, that may be relevant to the purchase, holding, redemption, sale, or transfer of any of the Subject Securities, and (b) his/her/its subscription and payment for, and his/her/its continued beneficial ownership of any of the Subject Securities will not violate any applicable securities or other laws of his/her/its jurisdiction.
