The Company agrees to issue and sell to Purchasers in an offshore transaction negotiated outside the U.S. and to be consummated and closed outside the U.S. and, in consideration of and in express reliance upon the representations, warranties, covenants, terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Purchasers agree to purchase from the Company an aggregate of $3,070,645 US dollars, or 30,706,452 shares (the “Shares”), of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.10 per share, (the “Common Stock”) at a per share purchase price which shall be  $0.10 per share (the “Purchase Price”).  The specific number of Shares that each Purchaser will purchase is set forth in Schedule A attached hereto. Each Purchaser understands and agrees that the Company in its sole discretion reserves the right to accept or reject this subscription for the Shares, in whole or in part, prior to receipt by the Company of the Purchase Price, or any applicable portion thereof, as set forth in Article II hereafter.


1.2 Payment of Purchase Price; Closing.  This transaction will be closed at a location outside the U.S. mutually designated by the Company and the Purchasers and each Purchaser will pay the applicable purchase price within a reasonable time agreed to by the Company and the Purchaser following execution of this Agreement. The Company will, within a reasonable period of time upon receipt of the funds, cause the Share certificates to be delivered to each Purchaser.





2.1. Representations by Each Purchaser.  Each Purchaser makes the following representations and warranties to the Company:


(a)  Access to Information.  Each Purchaser, in making the decision to purchase the Shares, has relied solely upon independent investigations made by it and/or its representatives, if any.  Each Purchaser and/or its representatives during the course of this transaction, and prior to the purchase of any Shares, has had the opportunity to ask questions of and receive answers from the management of the Company concerning the terms and conditions of the offering of the Shares and to receive any additional information, documents, records and books relative to its business, assets, financial condition, results of operations and liabilities (contingent or otherwise) of the Company.


(b)  Sophistication and Knowledge. Each Purchaser and/or its representatives has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters that it can represent itself and is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of the purchase of the Shares.  Each Purchaser is not relying on the Company with respect to the tax and other economic considerations of an investment in the Shares, and each Purchaser has relied on the advice of, or has consulted with, only each Purchaser's own advisor(s).


(c)  Lack of Liquidity.  Each Purchaser acknowledges that the purchase of the Shares involves a high degree of risk and further acknowledges that it can bear the economic risk of the purchase of the Shares, including the total loss of its investment.  Each Purchaser has no present need for liquidity in connection with its purchase of the Shares.


(d)   No Public Solicitation.  Each Purchaser is not subscribing for the Shares as a result of or subsequent to any advertisement, article, notice or other communication published in any newspaper, magazine or similar media or broadcast over television or radio, or presented at any seminar or meeting, or any solicitation of a subscription by a person not previously known to each Purchaser in connection with investments in securities generally.  Neither the Company nor each Purchaser has engaged in any ‘Directed Selling Efforts in the U.S.,’ as defined in Regulation S promulgated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.





(e)    Authority.  Each Purchaser has the full right and power to enter into and perform pursuant to this Agreement and to make an investment in the Company, and this Agreement constitutes each Purchaser’s valid and legally binding obligation, enforceable in accordance with its terms. Each Purchaser is authorized and otherwise duly qualified to purchase and hold the Shares and to enter into this Agreement.


(f)    Regulation S Exemption.  Each Purchaser understands that the Shares are being offered and sold to it in reliance on an exemption from the registration requirements of the United States federal and state securities laws under Regulation S promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, (the “Securities Act”) and that the Company is relying upon the truth and accuracy of the representations, warranties, agreements, acknowledgments and understandings of each Purchaser set forth herein in order to determine the applicability of such exemptions and the suitability of each Purchaser to acquire the Shares.  In this regard, each Purchaser represents, warrants and agrees that:

3.2 Corporate Action.  The Transaction Documents have been duly authorized, executed and delivered by the Company and constitute the legal, valid and binding obligations of the Company, enforceable against the Company in accordance with their respective terms.  The Shares have been duly authorized.  The issuance, sale and delivery of the Shares have been duly authorized by all required corporate action on the part of the Company.  The Shares, when issued and paid for in accordance with the Transaction Documents, will be validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable, with no personal liability attaching to the ownership thereof and will be free and clear of all liens, charges, restrictions, claims and encumbrances imposed by or through the Company, except as expressly set forth in the Transaction Documents.




3.3 Governmental Approvals.  No authorization, consent, approval, license, exemption of or filing or registration with any court or governmental department, commission, board, bureau, agency or instrumentality, domestic or foreign, is or will be necessary for, or in connection with, the execution and delivery by the Company of this Agreement, for the offer, issue, sale, execution or delivery of the Shares, or for the performance by the Company of its obligations under the Transaction Documents except for any filings required by applicable securities laws.


3.4 Litigation. There is no litigation or governmental proceeding or investigation pending or, to the knowledge of the Company, threatened against the Company affecting any of its properties or assets, nor, to the best knowledge of the Company, has there occurred any event or does there exist any condition on the basis of which any litigation, proceeding or investigation might properly be instituted.  The Company is not in default with respect to any order, writ, injunction, decree, ruling or decision of any court, commission, board or other government agency, which such default might have a material adverse effect on the business, assets, liabilities, operations, Intellectual Property Rights, (as defined hereinafter) management or financial condition of the Company.  There are no actions or proceedings pending or, to the Company’s knowledge, threatened (or any basis therefor known to the Company) against the Company which might result, either in any case or in the aggregate, in any material adverse change in the business, operations, Intellectual Property Rights, affairs or financial condition of the Company or in any of its properties or assets, or which might call into question the validity of any of the Transaction Documents, any of the Shares, or any action taken or to be taken pursuant hereto or thereto.

3.6 Disclosure.  There is no fact within the knowledge of the Company or any of its executive officers which has not been disclosed herein or in writing by them to each Purchaser and which materially adversely affects, or in the future in their opinion may, insofar as they can now foresee, materially adversely affect the business, operations, properties, Intellectual Property Rights, assets or condition, financial or other, of the Company.  Without limiting the foregoing, the Company has no knowledge that there exists, or there is pending or planned, any patent, invention, device, application or principle or any statute, rule, law, regulation, standard or code which would materially adversely affect the business, operations, Intellectual Property Rights, affairs or financial condition of the Company.


3.7 Brokers or Finders.  No person has or will have, as a result of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, any right, interest or valid claim against or upon each Purchaser for any commission, fee or other compensation as a finder or broker because of any act or omission by the Company or its respective agents.
