The execution and delivery of this Agreement by the Company and the consummation by it of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby have been duly authorized by all necessary action on the part of the Company and no further action is required by the Company, the Board of Directors or the Company’s stockholders in connection herewith or therewith. This Agreement have been (or upon delivery will have been) duly executed by the Company and, when delivered in accordance with the terms hereof and thereof, will constitute the valid and binding obligations of the Company enforceable against the Company in accordance with their terms, except: (i) as limited by general equitable principles and applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium and other laws of general application affecting enforcement of creditors’ rights generally, (ii) as limited by laws relating to the availability of specific performance, injunctive relief or other equitable remedies and (iii) insofar as indemnification and contribution provisions may be limited by applicable law.
(b) Issuance of the Securities. The Securities are duly authorized and, when issued and paid for in accordance with this Agreement, will be duly and validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable, free and clear of all Liens imposed by the Company. The shares of Common Stock underlying the Securities (if any), when issued in accordance with the terms of the Securities, will be validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable, free and clear of all Liens imposed by the Company other than restrictions on transfer required by law. The Creditor’s holding period with respect to such Securities and the Common Stock underlying the Securities shall tack back to the original acquisition date of the Obligations pursuant to Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act.
5. Representations and Warranties of the Creditor. Creditor hereby represents and warrants as of the date hereof and as of the Closing Date to the Company as follows (unless as of a specific date therein):
(a) Own Account. Creditor understands that the Securities are “restricted securities” and have not been registered under the Securities Act or any applicable state securities law and is acquiring the Securities as principal for its own account and not with a view to or for distributing or reselling such Securities or any part thereof in violation of the Securities Act or any applicable state securities law, has no present intention of distributing any of such Securities in violation of the Securities Act or any applicable state securities law and has no direct or indirect arrangement or understandings with any other persons to distribute or regarding the distribution of such Securities in violation of the Securities Act or any applicable state securities law (this representation and warranty not limiting such Creditor’s right to sell the Securities pursuant to a registration statement or otherwise in compliance with applicable federal and state securities laws). The Creditor is acquiring the Securities hereunder in the ordinary course of its business.
(c) Creditor’s Status. At the time the Creditor was offered the Securities, it was, and as of the date hereof it is, an “accredited investor” as defined in Rule 501(a) under the Securities Act.
(d) Experience of Creditor. Creditor, either alone or together with its representatives, has such knowledge, sophistication and experience in business and financial matters so as to be capable of evaluating the merits and risks of the prospective investment in the Securities, and has so evaluated the merits and risks of such investment. Such Creditor is able to bear the economic risk of an investment in the Securities and, at the present time, is able to afford a complete loss of such investment.
6. Release. The Creditor acknowledges and agrees that it shall have no further rights or interest in, and shall not receive any further consideration, payment or distribution of any kind with respect to, the Obligations, except as provided in this Agreement. In such regard, the Creditor hereby waives, relinquishes, remises and releases all rights, claims, interests or liabilities, known and unknown, of any nature whatsoever in law or equity which the Creditor may previously have had or may now or hereafter have as against or to receive from the Company arising out of, resulting from or relating to the Obligations or any rights or interest of the Creditor with respect thereto, except as provided in this Agreement.

In such regard, the Company hereby waives, relinquishes, remises and releases all rights, claims, interests or liabilities, known and unknown, of any nature whatsoever in law or equity which the Company may previously have had or may now or hereafter have as against or to receive from the Creditor arising out of, resulting from or relating to the Obligations or any rights or interest of the Company with respect thereto, except as provided in this Agreement
7. Transfer Restrictions. The Securities may only be disposed of in compliance with state and federal securities laws. In connection with any transfer of Securities other than pursuant to an effective registration statement or Rule 144 under the Securities Act or other applicable exemption, the Company may require the transferor thereof to provide to the Company an opinion of counsel selected by the Creditor, the form and substance of which opinion shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Company, to the effect that such transfer does not require registration of such transferred Securities under the Securities Act.
8. Further Assurances. The Creditor shall hereafter, without further consideration, execute and deliver promptly to the Company such further consents, waivers, assignments, endorsements and other documents and instruments, and to take all such further actions, as the Company may from time to time reasonably request with respect to the Exchange and satisfaction of the Obligations and the consummation in full thereof.
