(i) This Agreement is made with Seller in reliance upon Seller’s representation to Buyer LLC and PubCo, which by Seller’s execution of this Agreement, Seller hereby confirms, that the PubCo Shares to be acquired by Seller will be acquired for investment for Seller’s own account, not as a nominee or agent, and not with a view to the resale or distribution of any part thereof in violation of the Securities Act, and that Seller has no present intention of selling, contributing, granting any participation in, or otherwise distributing the same in violation of the Securities Act. By executing this Agreement, Seller further represents that Seller does not presently have any contract, undertaking, agreement or arrangement with any Person to sell, contribute, transfer or grant participations to such Person or to any third Person, with respect to any of the PubCo Shares.
(ii) Seller has had an opportunity to discuss PubCo’s business, management, financial affairs and the terms and conditions of the offering of the PubCo Shares with Seller’s management and has had an opportunity to review PubCo’s facilities, if any. Seller has had an opportunity to review PubCo’s OTC listing and various public filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission at http://www.sec.gov and shown on PubCo’s website including, without limitation, PubCo’s Form 10-K Annual Report under Section 13 or 15 (d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2020 (including the Risk Factors described therein) and has had an opportunity to discuss the same with PubCo's management. The foregoing, however, does not expand or modify the representations and warranties of Buyer LLC or PubCo in this Agreement or the right of Seller to rely thereon.
(iii) Seller is an Accredited Investor, as defined in Regulation D, C.F.R., §§ 230.501 of the Securities Act of 1933.
(iv) Seller understands that the PubCo Shares have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act, by reason of a specific exemption from the registration provisions of the Securities Act which depends upon, among other things, the bona fide nature of the investment intent and the accuracy of Seller’s representations as expressed herein. Seller understands that the PubCo Shares are “restricted securities” under applicable U.S. federal and state securities Laws and that, pursuant to these Laws, Seller must hold the PubCo Shares indefinitely unless they are registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and qualified by state authorities, or an exemption from such registration and qualification requirements is available. Seller acknowledges that neither PubCo nor Buyer LLC has any obligation to register or qualify PubCo Shares for resale; provided, that if, at any time the PubCo Shares are being sold in an off-shore transaction and in compliance with the requirements of Rule 904 of Regulation S under the Securities Act and in compliance with local Law and regulations, the legend may be removed by providing a declaration of offshore resale to PubCo’s transfer agent in form reasonably satisfactory to PubCo and its transfer agent, together with such other evidence as PubCo or its transfer agent may require, which may include an opinion of counsel in form and substance satisfactory to PubCo, to the effect that the transfer may be completed and the legend removed without registration under the Securities Act and any applicable state securities Law. Seller further acknowledges that if an exemption from registration or qualification is available, it may be conditioned on various requirements including, but not limited to, the time and manner of sale, the holding period for the PubCo Shares, and on requirements relating to PubCo which are outside of Seller’s control, and which PubCo is under no obligation and may not be able to satisfy. Seller acknowledges that the following legend will appear on the PubCo Shares at issuance:
“THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED HEREBY HAVE NOT BEEN AND WILL NOT BE REGISTERED UNDER THE UNITED STATES SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “SECURITIES ACT”), OR ANY STATE SECURITIES LAWS. THE HOLDER HEREOF, BY PURCHASING THESE SECURITIES, AGREES FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE CORPORATION THAT THESE SECURITIES MAY BE OFFERED, SOLD, PLEDGED, HYPOTHECATED OR OTHERWISE TRANSFERRED OR ENCUMBERED ONLY (A) TO THE CORPORATION, (B) OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES IN COMPLIANCE WITH RULE 904 OF REGULATION S (“REGULATION S”) UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT AND IN COMPLIANCE WITH APPLICABLE LOCAL LAWS AND REGULATIONS, (C) WITHIN THE UNITED STATES IN ACCORDANCE WITH (1) RULE 144A UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OR (2) RULE 144 UNDER THE U.S. SECURITIES ACT AND IN COMPLIANCE WITH APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS, OR (D) IN ANOTHER TRANSACTION THAT DOES NOT REQUIRE REGISTRATION UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OR ANY APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS, PROVIDED THAT IN THE CASE OF TRANSFERS PURSUANT TO (C)(2) OR (D) ABOVE, A LEGAL OPINION SATISFACTORY TO THE CORPORATION MUST FIRST BE PROVIDED TO THE CORPORATION OR THE TRANSFER AGENT, IF ANY, OF THE CORPORATION.
A NEW CERTIFICATE, BEARING NO LEGEND, MAY BE OBTAINED FROM THE TRANSFER AGENT, IF ANY, OF THE CORPORATION, UPON DELIVERY OF THIS CERTIFICATE AND A DULY EXECUTED DECLARATION, IN A FORM SATISFACTORY TO THE CORPORATION AND THE TRANSFER AGENT OF THE CORPORATION AND, IF SO REQUIRED BY THE TRANSFER AGENT OF THE CORPORATION, AN OPINION OF COUNSEL, TO THE EFFECT THAT THE SALE OF THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED HEREBY IS BEING MADE IN COMPLIANCE WITH RULE 904 OF REGULATION S UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT.”
(v) Seller has not either directly or indirectly, including, through a broker or finder (a) engaged in any general solicitation, or (b) published any advertisement in connection with the delivery of the PubCo Shares.

In the event a claim is made or filed against an Indemnified Party by a Person other than any Affiliate of the Indemnifying Party (a “Third Party Claim”), the Indemnified Party shall promptly (but in any event no more than ten (10) calendar days after receiving notice of or otherwise becoming aware that such Third Party Claim has been made or filed) provide written notice to the Indemnifying Party (the “Indemnity Notice”) hereunder (“Indemnifying Party”) of the same in writing, and the Indemnifying Party shall defend, compromise, and/or settle the Third Party Claim at its sole cost and expense, utilizing counsel that is acceptable to the Indemnified Party. The failure to so provide the Indemnity Notice within such ten (10) calendar day period shall not relieve the Indemnifying Party from liability hereunder unless such failure materially and substantially prejudiced the Indemnifying Party from defending, compromising, and/or otherwise settling the Third-Party Claim. The Indemnifying Party shall not be responsible for the expenses, including counsel fees, of the Indemnified Party incurred after the Indemnifying Party assumes defense of the Third-Party Claim, but the Indemnified Party may participate therein and retain counsel at its own expense.

If the Indemnifying Party either notifies the Indemnified Party that it does not dispute the claim described in such Indemnity Notice or fails to respond to the Indemnity Notice within thirty (30) days following the date on which such Indemnity Notice is delivered to the Indemnifying Party, as applicable, any and all Losses arising from the claim specified in such Indemnity Notice shall be conclusively deemed a Liability of the Indemnifying Party under Section 5, and the Indemnifying Party shall pay the amount of such Losses to the Indemnified Party as and when incurred by such Indemnified Party. If the Indemnifying Party disputes the fact that any indemnification obligations exist with respect to such claim, then the Indemnified Party shall have thirty (30) days following the date on which such Indemnity Notice is delivered to the Indemnifying Party to respond in a written statement to the objection of the Indemnifying Party. If after such thirty (30) day period there remains a dispute as to any such claim, then the Indemnified Party and the Indemnifying Party shall attempt for a period not to exceed twenty (20) additional days to agree upon the rights of the respective Parties with respect to such claim. If the Parties should so agree, a settlement agreement shall be promptly prepared and signed by the Indemnified Party and the Indemnifying Party. If the Parties do not agree within such additional twenty (20) day period, or do so agree but do not enter into a settlement agreement within thirty (30) days following the end of such twenty (20) day period, then either the Indemnified Party or the Indemnifying Party may elect to resolve such dispute by any remedy available that is not contrary to this Agreement.

The amount of any Losses for which indemnification is provided shall be net of (i) any amounts actually recovered by such Indemnified Party under insurance policies with respect to such Loss, (ii) any amounts collected from third parties (other than Affiliates of Buyer LLC or Seller), and (iii) any tax benefit that the Indemnified Party receives as a result of the Loss. The Indemnified Party agrees to take commercially reasonably steps to obtain any such insurance proceeds, third party collections, and tax benefits. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, EACH PARTY AGREES THAT IT WILL NOT ASSERT, AND HEREBY WAIVES, ANY CLAIM AGAINST ANY OTHER PARTY ON ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY FOR SPECIAL, SPECULATIVE, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF, IN CONNECTION WITH, OR AS A RESULT OF THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED THEREBY. EACH PARTY AGREES THAT NO OTHER PARTY SHALL BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES ARISING FROM THE USE BY UNINTENDED RECIPIENTS OF ANY INFORMATION OR OTHER MATERIALS DISTRIBUTED BY IT THROUGH TELECOMMUNICATIONS, ELECTRONIC FORMAT OR OTHER INFORMATION TRANSMISSION SYSTEMS IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY.
(g) Intentionally Omitted.
(h) Set-Off. Each indemnification obligation of Seller pursuant to this Section 5 may, at the election of the Buyer LLC in its sole discretion, be satisfied in whole or in part by (in addition to direct claims against Seller and all other remedies of Buyer pursuant to this Agreement) a set-off against any amounts outstanding under the Buyer LLC’s Note, in accordance with the terms, and subject to the limitations, thereof, and subject to the limitations set forth in Sections 5 (c) and (f) above. Except with respect to all Taxes described in Section 5 (a), such right of set-off remains subject to the notice and procedure requirements set forth in this Section 5 and, provided that Seller shall not be in default of this Agreement, any failure on the part of Buyer LLC to follow such notice and procedure requirements with respect to an indemnification obligation of Seller shall nullify Buyer LLC’s right to set-off indemnification obligations of Seller against any amounts outstanding under the Buyer LLC’s Note only with respect to the specific indemnification obligation subject to the notice and procedure requirements not given in compliance with Section 5. ..

(u) Delays or Omissions; Force Majeure. No delay or omission to exercise any right, power or remedy accruing to any Party under this Agreement, upon any breach or default of any other Party under this Agreement, shall impair any such right, power or remedy of such non-breaching or non-defaulting Party nor shall it be construed to be a waiver of any such breach or default, or an acquiescence therein, or of or in any similar breach or default thereafter occurring; nor shall any waiver of any single breach or default be deemed a waiver of any other breach or default theretofore or thereafter occurring. Any waiver, permit, consent or approval of any kind or character on the part of any Party of any breach or default under this Agreement, or any waiver on the part of any Party of any provisions or conditions of this Agreement, must be in writing and shall be effective only to the extent specifically set forth in such writing. All remedies, either under this Agreement or by Law or otherwise afforded to any Party, shall be cumulative and not alternative. The occurrence of any of the following events shall excuse performance of the obligations of a Party as are rendered impossible or reasonably impracticable to perform while such event continues: (a) strikes; (b) lockouts; (c) labor disputes; (d) acts of God; (e) inability to obtain labor, materials or reasonable substitutes therefor; (f) governmental restrictions, regulations or controls, other than the Law; (g) judicial orders; (h) enemy or hostile governmental action; (i) civil commotion; (j) fire or other casualty; and (k) other causes beyond the reasonable control of the Party obligated to perform.
(v) Time is of the Essence. Time is of the essence with respect to each Party’s performance of its obligations under this Agreement.
