5.3 Authority and Authorization; Conflicts.
(a) If the Company Stockholder is an individual, he or she has full power, capacity and authority to enter into and perform his or her obligations under this Agreement and each Ancillary Document of the Company Stockholder. If the Company Stockholder is not an individual, it has the requisite power and authority to enter into and perform its obligations under this Agreement and each Ancillary Document of the Company Stockholder and no further corporate or similar action or approval by the Company Stockholder or any other Person is necessary for the execution, delivery or performance by the Company Stockholder of this Agreement or any Ancillary Document to which that Company Stockholder is a party. Assuming due authorization, execution and delivery by Buyer of this Agreement and each Ancillary Document of Buyer, this Agreement is, and each Ancillary Document of that Company Stockholder will be, the legal, valid and binding obligation of that Company Stockholder, enforceable against that Stockholder in accordance with its terms, except to the extent enforceability may be limited by any Enforcement Limitation.
(b) This Agreement has been duly and validly executed and delivered by the Company Stockholder (and, if the Company Stockholder is married and any of the Company Stockholder’s Subject Shares constitute community property or otherwise need spousal or other approval for this Agreement to be valid and binding, the Company Stockholder’s spouse), and constitutes a valid and binding agreement of the Company Stockholder enforceable against it in accordance with its terms. The execution and delivery by the Company Stockholder of this Agreement and of any Ancillary Document and consummation by the Company Stockholder of the transactions contemplated herein and the Transactions does not and will not (with or without the passage of time or giving of notice): (i) if the Company Stockholder is not an individual, constitute a breach of, violate, conflict with or give rise to or create any right or obligation under the Organizational Documents of that Company Stockholder; (ii) violate any Applicable Law; or (iii) result in the creation or imposition of any Encumbrance on the Company Shares owned by the Company Stockholder.

(b) The Company Stockholder understands that any Buyer Common Stock issued to it pursuant to the Transactions will be characterized as “restricted securities” under the U.S. federal securities laws, inasmuch as they are being acquired from Buyer in a transaction not involving a public offering, and that under Applicable Laws such Buyer Common Stock may not be resold without registration under the Securities Act, except in certain limited circumstances. The Company Stockholder represents that it is familiar with Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act, as presently in effect, and understands the resale limitations imposed thereby and by the Securities Act. The Company Stockholder further acknowledges that if an exemption from registration or qualification is available, it may be conditioned on various requirements including the time and manner of sale, the holding period for the Buyer Common Stock, and on requirements relating to Buyer that are outside the Company Stockholder’s control, and which Buyer is under no obligation and may not be able to satisfy.
(c) The Company Stockholder has such knowledge, skill and experience in business, financial and investment matters that it is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of an investment in Buyer Common Stock. With the assistance of the Company Stockholder’s own professional advisors, to the extent that the Company Stockholder has deemed appropriate, the Company Stockholder has made its own legal, tax, accounting and financial evaluation of the merits and risks of an investment in Buyer Common Stock and the consequences of this Agreement and the Business Combination Agreement. The Company Stockholder has considered the suitability of Buyer Common Stock as an investment in light of its own circumstances and financial condition and the Company Stockholder is able to bear the risks associated with an investment in Buyer Common Stock.
