  (a)         Indemnification of Buyers.  In consideration of the Buyer’s execution and delivery of this Agreement and purchase of the Notes and the Warrants (and if applicable, the Conversion Shares and the Warrant Shares) hereunder, and in addition to all of the Company’s other obligations under this Agreement, the Company shall defend, protect, indemnify and hold harmless the Buyer(s) and each other holder of the Notes and the Warrants (and if applicable, the Conversion Shares and the Warrant Shares), and all of their officers, directors, employees and agents (including, without limitation, those retained in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement) (collectively, the “Buyer Indemnitees”) from and against any and all actions, causes of action, suits, claims, losses, costs, penalties, fees, liabilities and damages, and expenses in connection therewith (irrespective of whether any such Buyer Indemnitee is a party to the action for which indemnification hereunder is sought), and including reasonable attorneys’ fees and disbursements (the “Indemnified Liabilities”), incurred by the Buyer Indemnitees or any of them as a result of, or arising out of, or relating to (a) any material misrepresentation by Company or any material breach of any covenant, agreement, obligation, representation or warranty by the Company contained in this Agreement or the Note Documents, or (b) after any applicable notice and/or cure periods, any breach or default in performance by the Company of any covenant or undertaking to be performed by the Company hereunder.  To the extent that the foregoing undertaking by the Company may be unenforceable for any reason, the Company shall make the maximum contribution to the payment and satisfaction of each of the Indemnified Liabilities, which is permissible under applicable law.
 
  (b)        Indemnification of the Company.  Each of the Buyers agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Company and its respective officers, directors, employees, agents, control persons and affiliates from and against all losses, liabilities, claims, damages, costs, fees and expenses whatsoever (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees and disbursements, and any and all expenses incurred in investigating, preparing or defending against any litigation commenced or threatened) based upon or arising out of any actual or alleged false acknowledgment, representation or warranty, or misrepresentation or omission to state a material fact, or breach by the Buyer of any covenant or agreement made by the Buyer herein or in any other document delivered in connection with this Agreement or the Note Documents.
 
 
23

 
 
  (c)        Authority of Collateral Agent.  Each Buyer hereby irrevocably appoints, designates and authorizes the Collateral Agent to take such action on its behalf under the provisions of the Security Agreement and to exercise such powers and perform such duties as are expressly delegated to it by the terms of the Security Agreement, together with such powers as are reasonably incidental thereto, and grants and affirms the immunities and indemnities provided to the Collateral Agent Related Persons (as defined below) and its affiliates in each of the Security Agreement.  Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary contained elsewhere in this Agreement or in any of the Security Agreement, the Collateral Agent shall not have any duties or responsibilities, except those expressly set forth in the Security Agreement, and no implied covenants, functions, responsibilities, duties, obligations or liabilities shall be read into this Agreement or any of the Security Agreement or otherwise exist against the Collateral Agent. Each Buyer acknowledges that none of the Collateral Agent Related Persons has made any representation or warranty to it, and that no act by the Collateral Agent hereinafter taken, including any review of the affairs of the Company, shall be deemed to constitute any representation or warranty by any Collateral Agent-Related Person to any Buyer.  Each Buyer represents to the Collateral Agent that it has, independently and without reliance upon any Collateral Agent-Related Person and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own appraisal of and investigation into the business, prospects, operations, property, financial and other condition and creditworthiness of the Company and made its own decision to enter into this Agreement and to invest in the Notes.  Each Buyer also represents that it will, independently and without reliance upon any Collateral Agent Related Person and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own credit analysis, appraisals and decisions in taking or not taking action under this Agreement and the Note Documents, and to make such investigations as it deems necessary to inform itself as to the business, prospects, operations, property, financial and other condition and creditworthiness of the Company.  Except for notices, reports and other documents expressly herein required to be furnished to the Buyers by the Collateral Agent, the Collateral Agent shall not have any duty or responsibility to provide any Buyer with any credit or other information concerning the business, prospects, operations, property, financial and other condition or creditworthiness of the Company which may come into the possession of any of the Collateral Agent Related Persons.  “Collateral Agent Related Persons” means the Collateral Agent and any successor agent arising hereunder, together with their respective affiliates, and the officers, directors, employees, agents and attorneys-in-fact of such persons and affiliates.

  (q)        ANTI MONEY LAUNDERING REQUIREMENTS
 
The USA PATRIOT Act
 
What is money laundering?
 
How big is the problem and why is it important?
         
The USA PATRIOT Act is designed to detect, deter, and punish terrorists in the United States and abroad.  The Act imposes new anti-money laundering requirements on brokerage firms and financial institutions.  Since May 24, 2002, all brokerage firms have been required to have new, comprehensive anti-money laundering programs.
 
To help you understand these efforts, we want to provide you with some information about money laundering and our steps to implement the USA PATRIOT Act.
 
Money laundering is the process of disguising illegally obtained money so that the funds appear to come from legitimate sources or activities.  Money laundering occurs in connection with a wide variety of crimes, including illegal arms sales, drug trafficking, robbery, fraud, racketeering, and terrorism.
 
The use of the U.S. financial system by criminals to facilitate terrorism or other crimes could well taint our financial markets.  According to the U.S. State Department, one recent estimate puts the amount of worldwide money laundering activity at US$1 trillion a year.

What are we required to do to eliminate money laundering?
 
Under new rules required by the USA PATRIOT Act, our anti-money laundering program must designate a special compliance officer, set up employee training, conduct independent audits, and establish policies and procedures to detect and report suspicious transaction and ensure compliance with the new laws.
 
 
As part of our required program, we may ask you to provide various identification documents or other information.  Until you provide the information or documents we need, we may not be able to effect any transactions for you.
