|(n)||No Plan or Scheme. Purchaser acknowledges that the statutory and regulatory basis for the exemption from U.S registration requirements claimed for the offer of the Securities, although in technical compliance with Regulation S, would not be available if the offering is part of a plan or scheme to evade the registration provisions of the 1933 Act or any applicable state or provincial securities laws;|

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Purchaser is a multi-managed investment vehicle whereby separate portfolio managers manage separate portions of Purchaser’s assets and the portfolio managers have no direct knowledge of the investment decisions made by the portfolio managers managing other portions of such Purchaser’s assets, the covenant set forth above shall only apply with respect to the portion of assets managed by the portfolio manager that made the investment decision to purchase the Securities covered by this Subscription.|
