NATURE AND SURVIVAL OF REPRESENTATIONS AND OBLIGATIONS
14.01 Effect of Closing. All representations, warranties, covenants, and agreements of the parties contained in this
Agreement, or in any instrument, certificate, opinion, or other writing provided for in it, shall survive the closing, including the transfer of any real property.
14.02 Investment Representations. The Seller understands (a) that the common shares of Buyer to be conveyed pursuant to
this Agreement have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the 1933 Act) the Nevada Securities Act or any other state securities laws ( the Securities Acts) because the Buyer is issuing these shares in reliance upon the
exemptions from the registrations requirements of the Securities Acts providing for issuance of securities not involving a public offering; (b) that the Buyer has relied upon the fact that the common shares to be issued are to be held by the Seller
for investment; and (c) that exemption from registration under the Securities Acts would not be available if the common shares to be issued were acquired by the Seller with a view to distribution. Accordingly, the Seller hereby confirms to the Buyer
that such Seller is acquiring the common shares for the Seller’s own account for investment and not with a view to the resale or distribution thereof. The Seller agrees not to transfer, sell or offer for sale any portion of the common shares
unless there is an effective registration or other qualification relating thereto under the Securities Acts or unless the Seller delivers to the Buyer an opinion of counsel, satisfactory to the Buyer, that such registration or other qualification
under the Securities Acts is not required in connection with such transfer, offer or sale. The Seller understands that the Buyer is under no obligation to register the common shares or to assist the Seller in complying with any exemption from
registration under the Securities Acts, if the Seller should, at a later date, wish to dispose of the common shares. Furthermore, the Seller realizes that the common shares are unlikely to qualify for disposition under Rule 144 promulgated under the
1933 Act, unless the Seller is not an “affiliate” of the Buyer and the common shares have been beneficially owned and fully paid for by the Seller for at least the period required by relevant rule or regulation prior to disposition. Prior
to acquiring the common shares, the Seller has made an investigation of the Buyer and its business and Buyer has made available to the Seller all information with respect thereto which the Sellers needed to make an informed decision to acquire the
common shares. The Seller considers itself to be a “Person” possessing experience and sophistication as an investor which are adequate for the evaluation of the merits and risks of Seller’s investment in the common shares. The Seller
further represents that it has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters that makes it capable of evaluating the merits and risks of its ownership of the common shares, of protecting its own interests in connection therewith,
and of bearing the economic risk of losing its entire investment in the common shares. Finally, the Seller recognizes that its investment in the Buyer involves substantial risk, and that it has evaluated and fully understand all risks in its
decision to own common shares of the Buyer.
All notices, requests, demands, and other communications under this agreement shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been duly given on the date of service if served personally on the
party to whom notice is to be given, or on the third day after mailing if mailed to the party to whom notice is to be given, by first class mail, registered or certified, postage prepaid, and properly addressed to the address indicated above. Any
party may change its address for purposes of this paragraph by giving the other parties written notice of the new address in the manner set forth above.
This Agreement shall be construed in accordance with, and governed by, the laws of the State of Nevada.
IN WITNESS WHERE0F, the parties to this agreement have duly executed it on the day and year
