The cash available to the Seller after taking into account all other anticipated uses of the cash, will be sufficient to pay all such debts and judgments promptly in accordance with their terms.
Section 2.11 Disclosure. None of the representations or warranties of the Seller contained in this Agreement or any of the agreements, certificates, documents or other instruments contemplated by this Agreement, or any related exhibit or schedule hereto or thereto, contains any untrue statement of a material fact or omits to state a material fact necessary to make the statements herein or therein not misleading.

The Seller understands that the Shares have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”), the securities laws of any state thereof, or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction, nor is such registration contemplated. The Seller understands that the Shares will not be registered under the Act on the ground that the sale provided for in this Agreement is exempt from registration under the Act, and that the reliance of the Buyer on such exemption is predicated in part on the Seller’s representations set forth in this Agreement. The Seller understands that the Shares being issued hereunder are restricted securities within the meaning of Rule 144 under the Act; that the Shares are not registered and must be held indefinitely unless they are subsequently registered or an exemption from such registration is available.
Section 2.14 Restrictive Legends. It is understood that each certificate or other instrument, or any notation in the books and records of the Buyer, representing the Shares and any other securities issued in respect of any of the foregoing upon any stock split, stock dividend, recapitalization, merger, or similar event shall be stamped or otherwise imprinted with a legend substantially in the following form:
THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED HEREBY HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “ACT”), OR UNDER THE SECURITIES LAWS OF ANY STATES.

INVESTORS SHOULD BE AWARE THAT THEY MAY BE REQUIRED TO BEAR THE FINANCIAL RISKS OF THIS INVESTMENT FOR AN INDEFINITE PERIOD OF TIME. THE ISSUER OF THESE SECURITIES MAY REQUIRE AN OPINION OF COUNSEL IN FORM AND SUBSTANCE REASONABLY SATISFACTORY TO THE ISSUER TO THE EFFECT THAT ANY PROPOSED TRANSFER OR RESALE IS IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE ACT AND ANY APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS.
Section 2.15 No Transfer. The Shares to be acquired hereunder are being acquired by the Seller for the Seller’s own account, not as a nominee or agent, for investment purposes only and not with a view to resale or distribution. The Seller has not entered into any agreement, arrangement, contract or undertaking with any Person to pledge, sell or transfer to such Person the Shares or otherwise grant to any Person any participation rights in the Shares (including rights to receive proceeds from distributions made by or on behalf of the Buyer), and the Seller has no present plans or intentions to enter into any such agreement, arrangement, contract or undertaking.
Section 2.16 Status. The Seller is an “accredited investor,” as defined in Regulation D under the Act. The Seller has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters that the Seller is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of an investment in the Shares. The Seller is able to bear the economic risk of this investment. The Seller has had the opportunity to consult with the Seller’s own attorney, accountant and/or purchaser representative regarding this investment in the Shares and their suitability for purchase by the Seller, and to the extent necessary, the Seller has retained, at the Seller’s own expense, and relied upon, appropriate professional advice regarding the investment, legal and tax merits, risks and consequences of this Agreement and the other agreements, certificates, documents and instruments contemplated hereby and of purchasing and owning the Shares.
Section 2.17 Transferability. The Seller is aware that there currently is no market for the Shares, that no such market may ever develop and that it may not be possible to liquidate the Shares and the Buyer must bear the economic risks of the investment in the Shares for an indefinite period of time.
