2. SUBSCRIBER’S REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND COVENANTS
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, if applicable, and this Agreement constitutes a valid and legally binding obligation of the Subscriber.
(b) The Subscriber acknowledges its understanding that the 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(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 investment 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 the Subscriber’s own beneficial account, 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 reasonably requested by the Subscriber, if any, 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 economic considerations involved in this investment. The Subscriber has relied on the advice of, or has consulted with, only its Advisors. Each Advisor, if any, is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of an investment in the Shares, and 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 represents, warrants and agrees that he, she or it 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 also understands that the Company is under no obligation to register the Shares on behalf of the Subscriber or to assist the Subscriber in complying with any exemption from registration under the Securities Act or applicable state securities laws. The Subscriber understands that any sales or transfers of the Shares are further restricted by state securities laws and the provisions of this Agreement.
(e) No oral or written representations or warranties have been made to the Subscriber by the Company or any of its officers, employees, agents, sub-agents, affiliates, advisors or subsidiaries, 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.
(f) The Subscriber understands and acknowledges that its purchase of the Shares is a speculative investment that involves a high degree of risk and the potential loss of their entire investment and, in particular, acknowledges that the Company has a limited operating history and is engaged in a highly competitive business.
(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 for the Company, such Shares may be sold without registration under the Securities Act, as well as any applicable “blue sky” or state securities laws:
THE SECURITIES 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 SECURITIES HAVE BEEN ACQUIRED FOR INVESTMENT PURPOSES AND MAY NOT BE OFFERED FOR SALE, SOLD, 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 SECURITIES UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OR AN OPINION OF COUNSEL SATISFACTORY TO THE ISSUER THAT SUCH REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED.
(i) Neither the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) nor any state securities commission has approved the Shares or passed upon or endorsed the merits of an investment therein. There is no government or other insurance covering any of the Shares.
(j) The Subscriber and its Advisors, if any, have had a reasonable opportunity to ask questions of and receive answers from a person or persons acting on behalf of the Company concerning the Shares and the business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects of the Company, and all such questions have been answered to the full satisfaction of the Subscriber and its Advisors, if any.
(k) The Subscriber is unaware of, is in no way relying on, and did not become aware of the Company’s offering of the Shares through or as a result of, any form of general solicitation or general advertising including, without limitation, any article, notice, advertisement or other communication published in any newspaper, magazine or similar media or broadcast over television or radio, or electronic mail over the Internet, and is not subscribing for Shares and did not become aware of the Company’s offering of the Shares through or as a result of any seminar or meeting to which the Subscriber was invited by, or any solicitation of a subscription by, a person not previously known to the Subscriber in connection with investments in securities generally.
(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 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.
(n) 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.
(o) 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; provided, however, that the Subscriber shall not be liable for any Loss that in the aggregate exceeds such Subscriber’s Aggregate Purchase Price tendered hereunder.
(p) The Subscriber is, and on each date on which the Subscriber continues to own the Shares will be, an “Accredited Investor” as defined in Rule 501(a) under the Securities Act.
(q) The Subscriber represents, warrants and covenants that: (i) it is not, nor is any person or entity controlling, controlled by or under common control with Subscriber, included on the List of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons maintained by the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets ControlI (“OFAC”), as such list may be amended from time to time (such persons or entities are collectively referred to as “Prohibited Persons”), and (ii) to the extent Subscriber has any beneficial owners, (1) it has carried out thorough due diligence to establish the identities of such beneficial owners, (2) based on such due diligence, Subscriber reasonably believes that no such beneficial owners are Prohibited Persons, (3) it holds the evidence of such identities and status and will maintain all such evidence for at least five years from the date of Subscriber’s complete withdrawal from the Company, and (4) it will make available such information and any additional information requested by the Company that is required under applicable regulations. If any of the foregoing representations, warranties or covenants ceases to be true or if the Company no longer reasonably believes that it has satisfactory evidence as to their truth, notwithstanding any other agreement to the contrary, the Company may, in accordance with applicable regulations, freeze Subscriber’s investment, or Subscriber’s investment may immediately be involuntarily withdrawn by the Company, and the Company may also be required to report such action and to disclose Subscriber’s identity to OFAC or other authorities. Subscriber understands and agrees that any withdrawal proceeds paid to it will be paid to the same account from which Subscriber’s investment in the Company was originally remitted, unless the Company, in its sole discretion, agrees otherwise.
