(b) Securities Law Compliance. The Investor has been advised that the Note and the underlying securities have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or any state securities laws and, therefore, cannot be resold unless they are registered under the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or unless an exemption from such registration requirements is available. Such Investor is aware that the Company is under no obligation to effect any such registration with respect to the Note or the underlying securities or to file for or comply with any exemption from registration. Such Investor has not been formed solely for the purpose of making this investment and is purchasing the Note to be acquired by such Investor hereunder for its own account for investment, not as a nominee or agent, and not with a view to, or for resale in connection with, the distribution thereof, and Investor has no present intention of selling, granting any participation in, or otherwise distributing the same. Such Investor has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters that such Investor is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of such investment, is able to incur a complete loss of such investment without impairing such Investor’s financial condition and is able to bear the economic risk of such investment for an indefinite period of time. Such Investor is an “accredited investor” as such term is defined in Rule 501 of Regulation D under the Securities Act and shall submit to the Company such further assurances of such status as may be reasonably requested by the Company. The residency of the Investor (or, in the case of a partnership or corporation, such entity’s principal place of business) is correctly set forth beneath such Investor’s name on the signature page hereto.
(c) Access to Information. The Investor acknowledges that the Company has given such Investor access to the corporate records and accounts of the Company and to all information in its possession relating to the Company, has made its officers and representatives available for interview by such Investor, and has furnished such Investor with all documents and other information required for such Investor to make an informed decision with respect to the purchase of the Note.
(d) No “Bad Actor” Disqualification Events. Neither (i) Investor, (ii) any of its directors, executive officers, other officers that may serve as a director or officer of any company in which it invests, general partners or managing members, nor (iii) any beneficial owner of any of the Company’s voting equity securities (in accordance with Rule 506(d) of the Securities Act) held by such Investor is subject to any Disqualification Event (as defined in Section 2(e)), except for Disqualification Events covered by Rule 506(d)(2) or (d)(3) under the Securities Act and disclosed reasonably in advance of the Closing in writing in reasonable detail to the Company.
(a) Waivers and Amendments. Any provision of this Agreement and the Note may be amended, waived or modified only upon the written consent of the Company and the Investors representing a majority of all principal then owing pursuant to outstanding Notes issued pursuant to the Agreements (a “Majority in Interest of Investors”). Any amendment or waiver effected in accordance with this paragraph shall be binding upon all of the Investors with respect to their Notes.
(b) Governing Law. This Agreement and all actions arising out of or in connection with this Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without regard to the conflicts of law provisions of the State of California or of any other state.
(c) Survival. The representations, warranties, covenants and agreements made herein shall survive the execution and delivery of this Agreement.
(d) Successors and Assigns. The rights and obligations of the Company and the Investor shall be binding upon and benefit the successors, assigns, heirs, administrators and transferees of the parties.
(e) Entire Agreement. This Agreement together with the Note constitute and contain the entire agreement between the Company and Investor and supersedes any and all prior agreements, negotiations, correspondence, understandings and communications among the parties, whether written or oral, respecting the subject matter hereof.

(h) Waiver of Potential Conflicts of Interest. Each of the Investors and the Company acknowledges that Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, Professional Corporation (“WSGR”) may have represented and may currently represent certain of the Investors. In the course of such representation, WSGR may have come into possession of confidential information relating to Investor. The Investor and the Company acknowledge that WSGR is representing only the Company in this transaction. The Investor and the Company understands that an affiliate of WSGR may also be an Investor under this Agreement.
