All Conversion Shares and Warrant Shares shall be duly authorized and, when issued upon such conversion or exercise in accordance with the Amended Certificate or the Warrant, as the case may be, shall be validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable. (f) RESTRICTIONS ON TRANSFER. The Purchasers will not, prior to the earlier of (a) December 31, 2004 or (b) the time of the closing of the Initial Public Offering, sell, transfer, assign, convey, gift, mortgage, pledge, encumber, hypothecate, or otherwise dispose of, directly or indirectly, ("TRANSFER") any of the Shares or any Conversion Shares except for (i) Transfers between and among the Purchasers and their Affiliates provided such Transfer is in accordance with the transfer restrictions applicable to the Shares or the Conversion Shares under federal and state securities laws and the Affiliate transferee agrees to be bound by the restrictions applicable to such Shares or Conversion Shares, including without limitation the agreements set forth in this Section 5(f), and (ii) Transfers (x) pursuant to a bona fide tender or exchange offer made pursuant to a merger or other agreement approved by the Board of Directors to acquire securities of the Company; PROVIDED, that the Purchasers may not tender or exchange in such offer unless at least 50% of the outstanding voting securities of the Company have previously been tendered or exchanged by other holders of the Company's securities in connection therewith, (y) pursuant to any cash merger, or other business combination transaction to which the Company is a party or involved in which the common stock of the Company's stockholders is exchanged for cash upon consummation of such merger or other business combination or (z) agreed to in writing by the Company. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 5(f), no Purchaser shall avoid the provisions of this Section 5(f) by making one or more transfers to one or more Affiliates and then disposing of all or any portion of such Purchaser's interest in any such Affiliate. (g) PREEMPTIVE RIGHT. If at any time the Company desires to issue or sell any shares (the "ADDITIONAL Shares") of its capital stock that entitle the holder thereof to voting rights (other than Non-Preemptive Shares) to any Person, the Company shall give a written notice (the "ISSUANCE NOTICE") to the Purchasers setting forth the proposed terms of such Additional Shares and the quantity of Additional Shares to be issued, the issuance date and the price at which such Additional Shares shall be issued. Each of the Purchasers shall have the option to purchase the number of Additional Shares necessary to maintain such Purchaser's percentage of issued and PURCHASE AGREEMENT -10- outstanding voting shares of the Company at the time of the Issuance Notice, which option may be exercised by giving written notice to the Company (the "RESPONSE NOTICE") within 14 days of the Issuance Notice that contains an unconditional agreement to purchase all (and not less than all) of the Additional Shares to which such Purchaser is entitled to purchase. Failure by a Purchaser to give the Response Notice to the Company within such 14-day period shall be deemed to be a rejection of such option. At the option of the Company, within 14 days of Company's receipt of the Response Notice or at the time of the closing of the sale of Additional Shares to any Persons pursuant to the next sentence, the Company shall sell to such Purchaser and such Purchaser shall purchase the Additional Shares that such Purchaser agreed to purchase in the Response Notice, at the price and on the terms set forth in the Issuance Notice. For a period of 270 days after any Issuance Notice, the Company shall have the right to issue or sell to any Person up to the number of Additional Shares specified in the Issuance Notice less the number of Additional Shares pursuant to duly tendered Response Notices at a price and on terms not materially less favorable to the Company than as specified in the Issuance Notice. If the Company desires to issue or sell Additional Shares, (i) after such 270-day period, (ii) on terms materially less favorable to the Company than as specified in the Issuance Notice or (iii) in a quantity greater than as specified in the previous sentence, the Company must again comply with this Section 5(g). The rights and obligations of the parties pursuant to this Section 5(g) shall terminate upon the closing of an Initial Public Offering. (h) COMPLIANCE WITH SECURITIES LAWS. Such Purchaser understands that the Shares, the Conversion Shares and the Warrant Shares will not be registered under the Securities Act or applicable state securities laws and agrees not to sell, pledge or otherwise transfer any of the Shares, Conversion Shares and the Warrant Shares in the absence of such registration or an opinion of counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Company that such registration is not required. Except as set forth in the Registration Rights Agreement, such Purchaser acknowledges that the Company is not required to register the Shares, the Conversion Shares or the Warrant Shares. 6.
