2. ACCEPTANCE, OFFERING TERM AND CLOSING PROCEDURES
(a) Acceptance or Rejection. Subject to full, faithful and punctual performance and discharge by the Company of all of its duties, obligations and responsibilities as set forth in this Agreement and any other agreement entered into between the Subscriber and the Company relating to this subscription (collectively, the “Transaction Documents”), the Subscriber shall be legally bound to purchase the Shares pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, upon the occurrence of the failure by the Company to fully, faithfully and punctually perform and discharge any of its duties, obligations and responsibilities as set forth in any of the Transaction Documents, which shall have been performed or otherwise discharged prior to the Closing, the Subscriber may, on or prior to the Closing (as defined below), at its sole and absolute discretion, elect not to purchase the Shares and provide instructions to the Company to receive the full and immediate refund of the Aggregate Purchase Price. The Subscriber understands and agrees that the Company reserves the right to reject this subscription for Shares in whole or part in any order at any time prior to the Closing for any reason or for no reason, notwithstanding the Subscriber’s prior receipt of notice of acceptance of the Subscriber’s subscription. In the event the Closing does not take place because of (i) the rejection of subscription for Shares by the Company; or (ii) the election not to purchase the Shares by the Subscriber; or (iii) failure to effectuate an initial closing on or prior to March 1, 2019 (unless extended in the discretion of the Company) (which, for the avoidance of doubt, has occurred) for any reason or no reason, this Agreement and any other Transaction Documents shall thereafter be terminated and have no force or effect, and the parties shall take all steps, to ensure that the Aggregate Purchase Price shall promptly be returned or caused to be returned to the Subscriber without interest thereon or deduction therefrom.
(b) Closing. The closing of the purchase and sale of the Shares hereunder (the “Closing”) shall take place at the offices of the Company or such other place as determined by the Company and may take place in one of more closings. Closings shall take place on a Business Day promptly following the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 6 below, as determined by the Company (the “Closing Date”). “Business Day” shall mean from the hours of 9:00 a.m. (Eastern Time) through 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) of a day other than a Saturday, Sunday or other day on which commercial banks in New York, New York are authorized or required to be closed. The Shares purchased by the Subscriber will be delivered by the Company promptly on the Closing Date (as defined above).
(c) Following Acceptance or Rejection. The Subscriber acknowledges and agrees that this Agreement and any other documents delivered in connection herewith will be held by the Company. In the event that this Agreement is not accepted by the Company for whatever reason, which the Company expressly reserves the right to do, this Agreement, the Aggregate Purchase Price received (without interest thereon) and any other documents delivered in connection herewith will be returned to the Subscriber at the address of the Subscriber as set forth in this Agreement. If this Agreement is accepted by the Company, the Company is entitled to treat the Aggregate Purchase Price received as an interest free loan to the Company until such time as the Subscription is accepted.
(d) Acknowledgments. The Subscriber understands that the Shares are offered by the Company without any anti- dilution or similar protections, and further understands and agrees that its signature hereto will constitute a surrender of all previous anti-dilution protection that may have been granted to it by the Company, which protective provisions will cease and be null and void upon its execution and the Company’s acceptance of this Agreement.
3. THE SUBSCRIBER’S REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND COVENANTS
The Subscriber hereby acknowledges, agrees with and represents, warrants and covenants to the Company, as follows:
(a) The Subscriber has full power and authority to enter into this Agreement, the execution and delivery of which has been duly authorized by all the necessary corporate actions, and no other acts or proceedings on the part of the Subscriber are necessary to authorize the execution, delivery or performance by the Subscriber of this Agreement, if applicable, and this Agreement constitutes a valid and legally binding obligation of the Subscriber, except as may be limited by bankruptcy, reorganization, insolvency, moratorium and similar laws of general application relating to or affecting the enforcement of rights of creditors, and except as enforceability of the obligations hereunder are subject to general principles of equity (regardless of whether such enforceability is considered in a proceeding in equity or law).
(b) The Subscriber acknowledges its understanding that the Offering and sale of the Shares is intended to be exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), by virtue of Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and the provisions of Regulation D promulgated thereunder (“Regulation D”). In furtherance thereof, the Subscriber represents and warrants to the Company and its affiliates as follows:
(i) The Subscriber realizes that the basis for the exemption from registration may not be available if, notwithstanding the Subscriber’s representations contained herein, the Subscriber is merely acquiring the Shares for a fixed or determinable period in the future, or for a market rise, or for sale if the market does not rise. The Subscriber does not have any such intention.
(ii) The Subscriber realizes that the basis for exemption would not be available if the Offering is part of a plan or scheme to evade registration provisions of the Securities Act or any applicable state or federal securities laws.
(iii) The Subscriber is acquiring the Shares solely for investment purposes, and not with a view towards, or resale in connection with, any distribution of the Shares.
(iv) The Subscriber has the financial ability to bear the economic risk of the Subscriber’s investment, has adequate means for providing for its current needs and contingencies, and has no need for liquidity with respect to an investment in the Company.
(v) The Subscriber and the Subscriber’s attorney, accountant, purchaser representative and/or tax advisor, if any (collectively, the “Advisors”) has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters as to be capable of evaluating the merits and risks of a prospective investment in the Shares. If other than an individual, the Subscriber also represents it has not been organized solely for the purpose of acquiring the Shares.
(vi) The Subscriber (together with its Advisors, if any) has received all documents requested by the Subscriber or its agents (including Annex B, attached hereto), has carefully reviewed them and understands the information contained therein, prior to the execution of this Agreement.
(c) The Subscriber is not relying on the Company or any of its employees, agents, sub-agents or advisors with respect to the legal, tax, economic and related considerations involved in this investment. The Subscriber has relied on the advice of, or has consulted with, only its Advisors. Each Advisor, if any, has disclosed to the Subscriber in writing (a copy of which is annexed to this Agreement) the specific details of any and all past, present or future relationships, actual or contemplated, between the Advisor and the Company or any affiliate or sub-agent thereof.
(d) The Subscriber has carefully considered the potential risks relating to the Company and a purchase of the Shares, and fully understands that the Shares are a speculative investment that involves a high degree of risk of loss of the Subscriber’s entire investment. Among other things, the Subscriber has carefully considered each of the risks as described on Annex B, attached hereto and in the SEC Reports.
(e) The Subscriber will not sell or otherwise transfer any Shares without registration under the Securities Act or an exemption therefrom, and fully understands and agrees that the Subscriber must bear the economic risk of its purchase because, among other reasons, the Shares have not been registered under the Securities Act or under the securities laws of any state and, therefore, cannot be resold, pledged, assigned or otherwise disposed of unless they are subsequently registered under the Securities Act and under the applicable securities laws of such states, or an exemption from such registration is available. In particular, the Subscriber is aware that the Shares are “restricted securities,” as such term is defined in Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act (“Rule 144”), and they may not be sold pursuant to Rule 144 unless all of the conditions of Rule 144 are met. The Subscriber understands that any sales or transfers of the Shares are further restricted by state securities laws and the provisions of this Agreement.
(f) No oral or written representations or warranties have been made, or information furnished, to the Subscriber or its Advisors, if any, by the Company or any of its officers, employees, agents, sub-agents, affiliates, advisors or subsidiaries in connection with the Offering, other than any representations of the Company contained herein, and in subscribing for the Shares, the Subscriber is not relying upon any representations other than those contained herein.
(g) The Subscriber’s overall commitment to investments that are not readily marketable is not disproportionate to the Subscriber’s net worth, and an investment in the Shares will not cause such overall commitment to become excessive.
(h) The Subscriber understands and agrees that the certificates for the Shares shall bear substantially the following legend until (i) such Shares shall have been registered under the Securities Act and effectively disposed of in accordance with a registration statement that has been declared effective or (ii) in the opinion of counsel acceptable to the Subscriber, such Shares may be sold without registration under the Securities Act, as well as any applicable “blue sky” or state securities laws:
“THE SHARES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “SECURITIES ACT”), OR ANY APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS. SUCH SHARES HAVE BEEN ACQUIRED FOR INVESTMENT PURPOSES AND MAY NOT BE OFFERED FOR SALE, SOLD, DELIVERED AFTER SALE, TRANSFERRED, PLEDGED OR HYPOTHECATED IN THE ABSENCE OF AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT FILED BY THE ISSUER WITH THE U.S. SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION COVERING SUCH SHARES UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OR AN OPINION OF COUNSEL THAT SUCH REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED.

(k) (i) In making the decision to invest in the Shares the Subscriber has relied solely upon the information provided by the Company in the Transaction Documents.

(l) The Subscriber has taken no action that would give rise to any claim by any person for brokerage commissions, finders’ fees or the like relating to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby.
(m) The Subscriber is not relying on the Company or any of its employees, agents, or advisors with respect to the legal, tax, economic and related considerations of an investment in the Shares, and the Subscriber has relied on the advice of, or has consulted with, only its own Advisors.
(n) The Subscriber acknowledges that any estimates or forward-looking statements or projections furnished by the Company to the Subscriber were prepared by the management of the Company in good faith, but that the attainment of any such projections, estimates or forward-looking statements cannot be guaranteed by the Company or its management and should not be relied upon.
(o) No oral or written representations have been made, or oral or written information furnished, to the Subscriber or its Advisors, if any, in connection with the Offering that are in any way inconsistent with the information contained herein.
(p) (For ERISA plans only) The fiduciary of the ERISA plan (the “Plan”) represents that such fiduciary has been informed of and understands the Company’s investment objectives, policies and strategies, and that the decision to invest “plan assets” (as such term is defined in ERISA) in the Company is consistent with the provisions of ERISA that require diversification of plan assets and impose other fiduciary responsibilities. The Subscriber or Plan fiduciary (i) is responsible for the decision to invest in the Company; (ii) is independent of the Company and any of its affiliates; (iii) is qualified to make such investment decision; and (iv) in making such decision, the Subscriber or Plan fiduciary has not relied primarily on any advice or recommendation of the Company or any of its affiliates.
(q) This Agreement is not enforceable by the Subscriber unless it has been accepted by the Company, and the Subscriber acknowledges and agrees that the Company reserves the right to reject any subscription for any reason or for no reason.
(r) The Subscriber will indemnify and hold harmless the Company and, where applicable, its directors, officers, employees, agents, advisors, affiliates and shareholders, and each other person, if any, who controls any of the foregoing from and against any and all loss, liability, claim, damage and expense whatsoever (including, but not limited to, any and all fees, costs and expenses whatsoever reasonably incurred in investigating, preparing or defending against any claim, lawsuit, administrative proceeding or investigation whether commenced or threatened) (a “Loss”) arising out of or based upon any representation or warranty of the Subscriber contained herein or in any document furnished by the Subscriber to the Company in connection herewith being untrue in any material respect or any breach or failure by the Subscriber to comply with any covenant or agreement made by the Subscriber herein or therein.
(s) The Subscriber is, and on each date on which the Subscriber continues to own restricted Shares from the Offering will be, an “Accredited Investor” as defined in Rule 501(a) under the Securities Act.

The Subscriber has not authorized any person or entity to act as its Purchaser Representative (as that term is defined in Regulation D of the General Rules and Regulations under the Securities Act) in connection with the Offering. The Subscriber is able to bear the economic risk of an investment in the Shares and, at the present time, is able to afford a complete loss of such investment.
(u) The Subscriber has reviewed, or had an opportunity to review, all of the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, since January 1, 2018 (the “SEC Reports”), including, without limitation, the “Risk Factors” and “Forward Looking Statements” disclaimers contained therein.

Investing in the Shares involves a high degree of risk. A prospective Subscriber should consider the following risks, as well those risk factors set forth in the Company’s last Annual Report on Form 10-K,before purchasing any Shares. Any of such risks could harm the Company’s business, operating results and financial condition and cause the trading price of the Company’s common stock to decline, which would cause a Subscriber to lose all or part of its investment. When determining whether to invest, a prospective Subscriber should also refer to the other information contained in the SEC Reports including the Company’s financial statements and the related notes thereto.
Risks Relating to the Offering of the Shares
The Shares will be subject to restrictions on resale.
We have not registered the sale of any of the Shares under the Securities Act or any state securities laws. The securities offered hereby are highly illiquid, and are not transferable except in accordance with the Securities Act. Consequently, the Shares may not be resold or otherwise transferred unless they are subsequently registered under applicable securities laws or an exemption therefrom is available. In view of these and other limitations to the transfer of the Shares as described herein, the Shares should be considered an illiquid investment which may need to be held indefinitely. Limitations on the transfer of the Shares may also adversely affect the price that a Subscriber might be able to obtain for such securities in a private sale.
There is not an active, liquid market for the Company’s common stock.
The Company’s common stock is not listed on any national securities exchange. Accordingly, investors may find it more difficult to buy and sell the Company’s common stock than if it was traded on an exchange. Although the Company’s common stock is quoted on the OTC Pink, it is an unorganized, inter-dealer, over-the-counter market which provides significantly less liquidity than the NASDAQ Capital Market or other national securities exchange. Further, there is little reported trading in the Company’s common stock. These factors may have an adverse impact on the trading and price of the Company’s common stock.
The Company will have broad discretion and flexibility in how it uses the net proceeds from the offering.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from this offering for general corporate purposes including working capital. The Company’s management will have significant discretion and flexibility in applying the net proceeds of this offering. Subscribers will be relying on the judgment of the Company’s management with regard to the use of these net proceeds, and Subscribers will not have the opportunity, as part of their investment decision, to assess whether the net proceeds are being used appropriately. The failure of management to use such funds effectively could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
Additional stock offerings in the future may dilute then existing stockholders’ percentage ownership of the Company.
Given the Company’s plans and expectations that it will need additional capital, the Company anticipates that it will need to issue additional shares of common stock or securities convertible or exercisable for shares of common stock, which may include, for example, convertible preferred stock, convertible notes, or warrants. The issuance of additional securities in the future will dilute the percentage ownership of then existing stockholders.
The price of the Shares has been determined without a third party valuation or fairness opinion.
The Company has set the price of the Shares without the benefit of any third party valuation or fairness opinion or review. Subscribers must make their own determination as to the accuracy, fairness or reasonableness of the price of the Shares and the other terms of the offering.
There is no investor counsel.
The Company has not retained any independent professionals to review or comment on this offering or otherwise protect the interests of Subscribers. Although the Company has retained its own counsel, neither such firm nor any other firm has made any independent examination of any factual matters represented by management herein, and purchasers of the Shares offered hereby should not rely on any such firms so retained with respect to any matters herein described
No governmental entity has evaluated the Shares.
No federal or state commission, department or agency has made any evaluation, finding, recommendation or endorsement with respect to the Shares.
