PHCG and the Board of PHCG represent and warrant to Kingpins that the statements contained in this Section are true and correct as of the Effective Date and will be true and correct as of the Closing Date, as set forth herein and in Schedule II delivered by PHCG to Kingpins (the “PHCG Schedule”), arranged in sections corresponding to the paragraphs in this Section; the disclosure in any section or paragraph will qualify other paragraphs in this Section to the extent that it is reasonably apparent from a reading of the disclosure that it also qualifies or applies to such other sections or paragraphs.
(a) Organization. PHCG (i) is a Colorado corporation duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the state of Colorado (ii) has all requisite power and authority to carry on its business under the laws of the state of Colorado, and (iii) is duly qualified to transact business and is in good standing in all jurisdictions where its ownership, lease or operation of property or the conduct of its business requires such qualification, except where the failure to do so would not have a material adverse effect PHCG. All of the Licenses are validly issued, in good standing, and do not require renewal (either at the state or local level) prior to 30 days after the Effective Date.
PHCG’s authorized capital consists solely of two hundred fifty million (250,000,000) shares of common stock and twenty-five million (25,000,000) shares of preferred stock.

The assets of PHCG are in good condition, properly maintained, and suitable for the operation of the Businesses in accordance with PHCG’s past practices and as required by applicable law.

Within the times and in the manner prescribed by law, PHCG has filed all federal, state, and local tax returns required by law and has paid all taxes, assessments, and penalties due and payable, except where the failure to file and/or pay would not have a material adverse effect on PHCG. No federal income tax returns of PHCG have been audited by the Internal Revenue Service. The provision for taxes, if any, reflected in PHCG’s balance sheet as of May 31, 2021, is adequate for any and all federal, state, county, and local taxes for the period ending on the date of that balance sheet and for all prior periods, whether or not disputed. There are no present disputes as to taxes of any nature payable by PHCG.
(h) Investigation of Financial Condition of PHCG.

Neither PHCG nor its officers/directors are currently or have previously been under investigation by any regulatory agency.

(k) Ability to Carry Out Obligations. PHCG has the right, power, and authority to enter into and perform their obligations under this Agreement. The execution and delivery of this Agreement by them and the performance by them of his obligations hereunder will not cause, constitute, or conflict with or result in (a) any breach or violation of any of the provisions of or constitute a default under any license, indenture, mortgage, charter, instrument, articles of incorporation, by-law, or other agreement or instrument to which they are a party, or by which they may be bound, nor will any consents or authorizations of any party other than those hereto be required, (b) an event that would permit any party to any agreement or instrument to terminate it or to accelerate the maturity of any indebtedness or other obligation of PHCG, or (c) an event that would result in the creation or imposition or any lien, charge, or encumbrance on any asset of PHCG or would create any obligations for which PHCG would be liable, except as contemplated by this Agreement.
(l) Full Disclosure. None of the representations and warranties made by PHCG in any certificate or memorandum furnished or to be furnished by PHCG, or on its behalf, contains or will contain any untrue statement of material fact, or omit any material fact the omission of which would be misleading.
