(d) Information. Each Buyer and its advisors (and his or, its counsel), if any, have been furnished with all materials relating to the business, finances and operations of the Company and information he deemed material to making an informed investment decision regarding his purchase of the Securities, which have been requested by such Buyer. Each Buyer and its advisors, if any, have been afforded the opportunity to ask questions of the Company and its management. Neither such inquiries nor any other due diligence investigations conducted by such Buyer or its advisors, if any, or its representatives shall modify, amend or affect such Buyer's right to rely on the Company's representations and warranties contained in Section 3 below. Each Buyer understands that its investment in the Securities involves a high degree of risk. Each Buyer is in a position regarding the Company, which, based upon employment, family relationship or economic bargaining power, enabled and enables such Buyer to obtain information from the Company in order to evaluate the merits and risks of this investment. Each Buyer has sought such accounting, legal and tax advice, as it has considered necessary to make an informed investment decision with respect to its acquisition of the Securities. (e) No Governmental Review. Each Buyer understands that no United States federal or state agency or any other government or governmental agency has passed on or made any recommendation or endorsement of the Securities, or the fairness or suitability of the investment in the Securities, nor have such authorities passed upon or endorsed the merits of the offering of the Securities. Each Buyer understands and acknowledges that the Company has undertaken and will undertake no efforts to comply with any laws of any jurisdiction outside the United States relating to the issuance and sale of its securities except as may be provided herein. 3 (f) Transfer or Resale. Each Buyer understands that: (i) the Securities have not been and are not being registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws, and may not be offered for sale, sold, assigned or transferred unless (A) subsequently registered thereunder, (B) such Buyer shall have delivered to the Company an opinion of counsel, in a generally acceptable form, to the effect that such Securities to be sold, assigned or transferred may be sold, assigned or transferred pursuant to an exemption from such registration requirements, or (C) such Buyer provides the Company with reasonable assurances (in the form of seller and broker representation letters) that such Securities can be sold, assigned or transferred pursuant to Rule 144, or Rule 144A promulgated under the Securities Act, as amended (or a successor rule thereto) (collectively, "Rule 144"), in each case following the applicable holding period set forth therein; (ii) any sale of the Securities made in reliance on Rule 144 may be made only in accordance with the terms of Rule 144 and further, if Rule 144 is not applicable, any resale of the Securities under circumstances in which the seller (or the person through whom the sale is made) may be deemed to be an underwriter (as that term is defined in the Securities Act) may require compliance with some other exemption under the Securities Act or the rules and regulations of the SEC thereunder; and (iii) neither the Company nor any other person is under any obligation to register the Securities under the Securities Act or any state securities laws or to comply with the terms and conditions of any exemption thereunder. The Company reserves the right to place stop transfer instructions against the shares and certificates for the Conversion Shares. (g) Legends. Each Buyer agrees to the imprinting, so long as is required by this Section 2(g), of a restrictive legend in substantially the following form (and a stop transfer order may be placed against transfer of such stock certificates): THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, OR APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS. THE SECURITIES HAVE BEEN ACQUIRED SOLELY FOR INVESTMENT PURPOSES AND NOT WITH A VIEW TOWARD RESALE AND MAY NOT BE OFFERED FOR SALE, SOLD, TRANSFERRED OR ASSIGNED IN THE ABSENCE OF AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT FOR THE SECURITIES UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, OR APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS, OR AN OPINION OF COUNSEL, IN A GENERALLY ACCEPTABLE FORM, THAT REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED UNDER SAID ACT OR APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS. Certificates evidencing the Conversion Shares or Warrant Shares shall not contain any legend (including the legend set forth above), (i) while a registration statement covering the resale of such security is effective under the Securities Act, (ii) following any sale of such Conversion Shares or Warrant Shares pursuant to Rule 144, (iii) if such Conversion Shares or Warrant Shares are eligible for sale under Rule 144, or (iv) if such legend is not required under applicable requirements of the Securities Act (including judicial interpretations and pronouncements issued by the staff of the SEC). The Company shall cause its counsel to issue a legal opinion to the Company's transfer agent promptly after the effective date (the "Effective Date") of a Registration Statement if required by the Company's transfer agent to effect the removal of the legend hereunder. If all or any portion of the Convertible Debentures or Warrants are exercised by a Buyer that is not an Affiliate (as defined below) of the Company (a "Non-Affiliated Buyer") at a time when there is an effective registration statement to cover the resale of the Conversion Shares or the Warrant Shares, such Conversion Shares or Warrant Shares shall be issued free of all legends. The Company agrees that following the Effective Date or at such 4 time as such legend is no longer required under this Section 2(g), it will, no later than three (3) Trading Days following the delivery by a Non-Affiliated Buyer to the Company or the Company's transfer agent of a certificate representing Conversion Shares or Warrant Shares, as the case may be, issued with a restrictive legend (such third Trading Day, the "Legend Removal Date"), deliver or cause to be delivered to such Non-Affiliated Buyer a certificate representing such shares that is free from all restrictive and other legends. The Company may not make any notation on its records or give instructions to any transfer agent of the Company that enlarge the restrictions on transfer set forth in this Section. Each Buyer acknowledges that the Company's agreement hereunder to remove all legends from Conversion Shares or Warrant Shares is not an affirmative statement or representation that such Conversion Shares or Warrant Shares are freely tradable. Each Buyer, severally and not jointly with the other Buyers, agrees that the removal of the restrictive legend from certificates representing Securities as set forth in this Section 3(g) is predicated upon the Company's reliance that the Buyer will sell any Securities pursuant to either the registration requirements of the Securities Act, including any applicable prospectus delivery requirements, or an exemption therefrom, and that if Securities are sold pursuant to a Registration Statement, they will be sold in compliance with the plan of distribution set forth therein. (h) Authorization, Enforcement. This Agreement, and all related agreements, are within Buyer's corporate power and have been duly and validly authorized, executed and delivered on behalf of such Buyer and are valid and binding agreements of such Buyer enforceable in accordance with their terms, except as such enforceability may be limited by general principles of equity or applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium, liquidation and other similar laws relating to, or affecting generally, the enforcement of applicable creditors' rights and remedies.

Each Buyer acknowledges, that it had the opportunity to review this Agreement and the transactions contemplated by this Agreement with his or its own legal counsel and investment and tax advisors.

The Company shall not assign this Agreement or any rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of the Buyer. The Buyer may assign this Agreement upon 30 days' prior written notice to the Company, provided the assignee is capable of and agrees to comply with the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the Transaction Documents in their entirety and provided further that such assignment would not result in a violation of U.S. Department of Transportation regulations applicable to the Company. (h) No Third Party Beneficiaries. This Agreement is intended for the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective permitted successors and assigns, and is not for the benefit of, nor may any provision hereof be enforced by, any other person. (i) Survival. Unless this Agreement is terminated under Section 9(l), the representations and warranties of the Company and the Buyer contained herein, the agreements and covenants contained herein, and the indemnification provisions set forth in Section 8, shall survive the Closing for a period of two (2) years following the date on which the all amounts owed to the Buyer pursuant to the Prior Debentures and the Bridge Loans are paid in full. The Buyer shall be responsible only for its own representations, warranties, agreements and covenants hereunder. (j) Publicity. The Company and the Buyer(s) shall have the right to approve, before issuance any press release or any other public statement with respect to the transactions contemplated hereby made by any party; provided, however, that the Company shall be entitled, without the prior approval of the Buyer(s), to issue any press release or other public disclosure with respect to such transactions required under applicable securities or other laws or regulations (the Company shall use its best efforts to consult the Buyer(s) in connection with any such press release or other public disclosure prior to its release and Buyer(s) shall be provided with a copy thereof upon release thereof). (k) Further Assurances. Each party shall do and perform, or cause to be done and performed, all such further acts and things, and shall execute and deliver all such other agreements, certificates, instruments and documents, as the other party may reasonably request in order to carry out the intent and accomplish the purposes of this Agreement and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby. (l) Termination. In the event that the First Closing shall not have occurred with respect to the Buyers on or before five (5) business days from the date hereof due to the Company's or the Buyer's failure to satisfy the conditions set forth in Sections 6 and 7 above (and the non-breaching party's failure to waive such unsatisfied condition(s)), the non-breaching party shall have the option to terminate this Agreement with respect to such breaching party at the close of business on such date without liability of any party to any other party; provided, however, that if this Agreement is terminated by the Company pursuant to this Section 9(l), the Company shall remain obligated to reimburse the Buyer(s) for the fees and expenses of Yorkville Advisors LLC described in Section 4(g) above. 24 (m) Brokerage. The Company represents that no broker, agent, finder or other party, including officers, directors, employees, or affiliates of the Company (collectively, "Broker") has been retained by it in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby and that no fee or commission (in any form, whether cash, notes, stock, warrants, or convertible securities) has been agreed by the Company, or will be paid by the Company to any Broker for or on account of the transactions contemplated hereby. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company shall be permitted to pay a commission of up to 3.33% of the Purchase Price to a third party; provided, however, that the debenture financing completed by the parties hereto as of March 14, 2008 shall be considered an advance against the Purchase Price hereunder and that no commissions shall be paid in connection therewith. (n) No Strict Construction. The language used in this Agreement will be deemed to be the language chosen by the parties to express their mutual intent, and no rules of strict construction will be applied against any party. (o) The Company acknowledges that it has previously raised capital (the "Issuance") by the issuance of convertible debt and warrants with a fixed conversion price and exercise price of $0.30 per share. Pursuant to the terms of all convertible debt and warrants held by the Buyer, the Company further acknowledges that the fixed conversion price of such convertible debt and the exercise price of such warrants have been adjusted to $0.30 per share as a result of the Issuance. The Buyer hereby waives on a one-time basis any anti-dilution protection or other similar provision in such warrants that may otherwise apply in connection with the price adjustment described herein. (p) The Company shall amend and restate all convertible debt and warrants held by the Investor to be consistent with the preceding paragraph. To the extent possible, the convertible debt and warrants shall be consolidated in a manner that will not result in the loss of tacking to the holding period of the original security under Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
