Each of the Company and each of the Subsidiaries (as defined below) has the corporate, limited liability company or partnership, as the case may be, power and authority to own and operate its properties and assets and, insofar as it is or shall be a party thereto, to (1) execute and deliver (i) this Agreement, (ii) the Note and the Warrant to be issued in connection with this Agreement, (iii) the Master Security Agreement dated as of the date hereof between the Company, certain of the Subsidiaries and the Purchaser (as amended, modified and/or supplemented from time to time, the “Master Security Agreement”), (iv) the Registration Rights Agreement relating to the Securities dated as of the date hereof between the Company and the Purchaser (as amended, modified and/or supplemented from time to time, the “Registration Rights Agreement”), (v) the Subsidiary Guaranty dated as of the date hereof made by certain of the Subsidiaries (as amended, modified and/or supplemented from time to time, the “Subsidiary Guaranty”), (vi) the Stock Pledge Agreement dated as of the date hereof among the Company, certain of the Subsidiaries and the Purchaser (as amended, modified and/or or supplemented from time to time, the “Stock Pledge Agreement”), and (vii) the Funds escrow agreement dated as of the date hereof among the Company, the Purchaser and the escrow agent referred to therein, substantially in the form of Exhibit D hereto (as amended, modified and/or supplemented from time to time, the “Escrow Agreement”) (viii) all other documents, instruments and agreements entered into in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby (the preceding clauses (ii) through (viii), collectively, the “Related Agreements”); (2) issue and sell the Note and the shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Note (the “Note Shares”); (3) issue and sell the Warrant and the Warrant Shares; and (4) carry out the provisions of this Agreement and the Related Agreements and to carry on its business as presently conducted. Each of the Company and each of the Subsidiaries is duly qualified and is authorized to do business and is in good standing as a corporation, partnership or limited liability company, as the case may be, in all jurisdictions in which the nature or location of its activities and of its properties (both owned and leased) makes such qualification necessary, except for those jurisdictions in which failure to do so has not, or could not reasonably be expected to have, individually or in the aggregate, a material adverse effect on the business, assets, liabilities, condition (financial or otherwise), properties, operations or prospects of the Company and the Subsidiaries, taken individually and as a whole (a “Material Adverse Effect”).
 
4.2  Subsidiaries. Each direct and indirect subsidiary of the Company is set forth on Schedule 4.2. For the purposes of this Agreement and the Related Agreements, a “Subsidiary” shall mean each of the entities listed on Schedule 4.2(a), and a “subsidiary” or "the subsidiaries", as applicable, shall mean the entities listed on Schedule 4.2(b) hereto and (i) , any corporation or other entity, other than any Subsidiary, whose shares of stock or other ownership interests having ordinary voting power (other than stock or other ownership interests having such power only by reason of the happening of a contingency) to elect a majority of the directors of such corporation, or other persons or entities performing similar functions for such person or entity, are owned, directly or indirectly, by the Company or (ii) a corporation or other entity, other than any Subsidiary, in which the Company owns, directly or indirectly, more than 50% of the equity interests of such entity at such time. On the date hereof, no subsidiary (i) owns any assets in the United States (other than immaterial assets) or (ii) has any significant operations in the United States.

Except as disclosed on Schedule 4.3, neither the offer, issuance or sale of any of the Note or the Warrant, or the issuance of any of the Note Shares or Warrant Shares, nor the consummation of any transaction contemplated hereby will result in a change in the price or number of any securities of the Company outstanding, under anti-dilution or other similar provisions contained in or affecting any such securities.

6.16 Financing Right of First Refusal.
 
(a)  With effect for eighteen (18 ) months from the date hereof (the “Period”), the Company hereby grants to the Purchaser a right of first refusal to provide any Additional Financing (as defined below) to be issued by the Company and/or any of the Subsidiaries, subject to the following terms and conditions. During the Period, prior to the incurrence of any additional indebtedness and/or the sale or issuance of any secured convertible debt securities of the Company or any of the Subsidiaries (an “Additional Financing”), the Company and/or any Subsidiary, as the case may be, shall notify the Purchaser of its intention to enter into such Additional Financing. In connection therewith, the Company and/or the applicable Subsidiary thereof shall submit a fully executed term sheet (a “Proposed Term Sheet”) to the Purchaser setting forth the terms, conditions and pricing of any such Additional Financing (such financing to be negotiated on “arm’s length” terms and the terms thereof to be negotiated in good faith) proposed to be entered into by the Company and/or such Subsidiary. The Purchaser shall have the right, but not the obligation, to deliver its own proposed term sheet (the “Purchaser Term Sheet”) setting forth the terms and conditions upon which the Purchaser would be willing to provide such Additional Financing to the Company and/or such Subsidiary. The Purchaser shall deliver such Purchaser Term Sheet within five (5) business days of receipt of each such Proposed Term Sheet. If the provisions of the Purchaser Term Sheet are substantially similar in net economic effect to the provisions of the Proposed Term Sheet, the Company and/or such Subsidiary shall enter into and consummate the Additional Financing transaction outlined in the Purchaser Term Sheet. If the provisions of the Purchaser Term Sheet are not substantially similar in net economic effect to the provisions of the Proposed Term Sheet, the Company and/or such Subsidiary may enter into and consummate the Additional Financing transaction outlined in the Proposed Term Sheet.
 
(b)  Subject to section 6.16 (a) above, the Company will not, and will not permit the Subsidiaries to, agree, directly or indirectly, to any restriction with any person or entity which limits the ability of the Purchaser to consummate an Additional Financing with the Company or any of the Subsidiaries.
 
   6.17 Authorization and Reservation of Shares. The Company shall at all times have authorized and reserved a sufficient number of shares of Common Stock to provide for the conversion of the Note and exercise of the Warrants.
 
7.  Covenants of the Purchaser. The Purchaser covenants and agrees with the Company as follows:
 
7.1  Confidentiality. The Purchaser will not disclose, and will not include in any public announcement, the name of the Company or any of its subsidiaries, unless expressly agreed to by the Company or unless and until such disclosure is required by law or applicable regulation, and then only to the extent of such requirement.
 
7.2  Non-Public Information. The Purchaser will not effect any sales in the shares of the Company’s Common Stock while in possession of material, non-public information regarding the Company if such sales would violate applicable securities law.
 
7.3  Limitation on Acquisition of Common Stock of the Company. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, any Related Agreement or any document, instrument or agreement entered into in connection with any other transactions between the Purchaser and the Company, the Purchaser may not acquire stock in the Company (including, without limitation, pursuant to a contract to purchase, by exercising an option or warrant, by converting any other security or instrument, by acquiring or exercising any other right to acquire, shares of stock or other security convertible into shares of stock in the Company, or otherwise, and such contracts, options, warrants, conversion or other rights shall not be enforceable or exercisable) to the extent such stock acquisition would cause any interest (including any original issue discount) payable by the Company to the Purchaser not to qualify as “portfolio interest” within the meaning of Section 881(c)(2) of the Code, by reason of Section 881(c)(3) of the Code, taking into account the constructive ownership rules under Section 871(h)(3)(C) of the Code (the “Stock Acquisition Limitation”). The Stock Acquisition Limitation shall automatically become null and void without any notice to the Company upon the earlier to occur of either (a) the Company’s delivery to the Purchaser of a Notice of Redemption (as defined in the Note) or (b) the existence of an Event of Default (as defined in the Note) at a time when the average closing price of the Company’s common stock as reported by Bloomberg, L.P. on the Principal Market for the immediately preceding five trading days is greater than or equal to 150% of the Fixed Conversion Price (as defined in the Note). The Note is intended to be a registered obligation within the meaning of Treasury Regulation Section 1.871-14(c)(1)(i) and the Company (or its agent) shall register the Note (and thereafter shall maintain such registration) as to both principal and any stated interest. Notwithstanding any document, instrument or agreement relating to the Note to the contrary, transfer of the Note (or the right to any payments of principal or stated interest thereunder) may only be effected by (i) surrender of the Note and either the reissuance by the Company of the Note to the new holder or the issuance by the Company of a new instrument to the new holder, or (ii) transfer through a book entry system maintained by the Company (or its agent), within the meaning of Treasury Regulation Section 1.871-14(c)(1)(i)(B).
 
8.  Covenants of the Company and the Purchaser Regarding Indemnification.
 
8.1  Company Indemnification. The Company agrees to indemnify, hold harmless, reimburse and defend the Purchaser, each of the Purchaser’s officers, directors, agents, affiliates, control persons, and principal shareholders, against all claims, costs, expenses, liabilities, obligations, losses or damages (including reasonable legal fees) of any nature, incurred by or imposed upon the Purchaser which result, arise out of or are based upon: (i) any misrepresentation by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or breach of any warranty by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries in this Agreement, any other Related Agreement or in any exhibits or schedules attached hereto or thereto; or (ii) any breach or default in performance by Company or any of its Subsidiaries of any covenant or undertaking to be performed by Company or any of its Subsidiaries hereunder, under any other Related Agreement or any other agreement entered into by the Company and/or any of its Subsidiaries and the Purchaser relating hereto or thereto. 
 
8.2  Purchaser’s Indemnification. The Purchaser agrees to indemnify, hold harmless, reimburse and defend the Company, each of the Company's Subsidiaries and each of the Company’s or any of its subsidiary's officers, directors, agents, affiliates, control persons and principal shareholders, at all times against all claims, costs, expenses, liabilities, obligations, losses or damages (including reasonable legal fees) of any nature, incurred by or imposed upon the Company and/or any of its Subsidiaries which result, arise out of or are based upon: (i) any misrepresentation by the Purchaser or breach of any warranty by the Purchaser in this Agreement, any other Related Agreement or in any exhibits or schedules attached hereto or thereto; or (ii) any breach or default in performance by the Purchaser of any covenant or undertaking to be performed by the Purchaser hereunder, under any other Related Agreement or any other agreement entered into by the Company and/or ant of its Subsidiaries and the Purchaser relating hereto or thereto.
 
9.  Conversion of Convertible Note.
 
9.1  Mechanics of Conversion.
 
(a)  Provided the Purchaser has notified the Company of the Purchaser’s intention to sell the Note Shares and the Note Shares are included in an effective registration statement or are otherwise exempt from registration when sold: (i) upon the conversion of the Note or part thereof, the Company shall, at its own cost and expense, take all necessary action (including the issuance of an opinion of counsel reasonably acceptable to the Purchaser following a request by the Purchaser) to assure that the Company’s transfer agent shall issue shares of the Company’s Common Stock in the name of the Purchaser (or its nominee) or such other persons as designated by the Purchaser in accordance with Section 9.1(b) hereof and in such denominations to be specified representing the number of Note Shares issuable upon such conversion; and (ii) the Company warrants that no instructions other than these instructions have been or will be given to the transfer agent of the Company’s Common Stock and that after the Effectiveness Date (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement) the Note Shares issued will be freely transferable subject to the prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act and the provisions of this Agreement or any other Related Agreement and will not contain a legend restricting the resale or transferability of the Note Shares.
 
(b)  The Purchaser will give notice of its decision to exercise its right to convert the Note or part thereof by telecopying or otherwise delivering an executed and completed notice of the number of shares to be converted to the Company (the “Notice of Conversion”). The Purchaser will not be required to surrender the Note until the Purchaser receives a credit to the account of the Purchaser’s prime broker through the DWAC system (as defined below), representing the Note Shares or until the Note has been fully satisfied. Each date on which a Notice of Conversion is telecopied or delivered to the Company in accordance with the provisions hereof shall be deemed a “Conversion Date.” Pursuant to the terms of the Notice of Conversion, the Company will issue instructions to the transfer agent accompanied by an opinion of counsel within three (3) business days of the date of the delivery to the Company of the Notice of Conversion and shall cause the transfer agent to transmit the certificates representing the Note Shares issued to the Purchaser (or its nominee) by crediting the account of the Purchaser’s prime broker with the Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) through its Deposit Withdrawal Agent Commission (“DWAC”) system within three (3) business days after receipt by the Company of the Notice of Conversion (the “Delivery Date”).
 
(c)  The Company understands that a delay in the delivery of the Note Shares in the form required pursuant to Section 9 hereof beyond the Delivery Date could result in economic loss to the Purchaser. In the event that the Company fails to direct its transfer agent to deliver the Note Shares to the Purchaser via the DWAC system within the time frame set forth in Section 9.1(b) above and the Note Shares are not delivered to the Purchaser by the Delivery Date, as compensation to the Purchaser for such loss, the Company agrees to pay late payments to the Purchaser for late issuance of the Note Shares in the form required pursuant to Section 9 hereof upon conversion of the Note in the amount equal to the greater of: (i) $500 per business day after the Delivery Date; or (ii) the Purchaser’s actual damages from such delayed delivery. The Company shall pay any payments incurred under this Section in immediately available funds upon demand and, in the case of actual damages, accompanied by reasonable documentation of the amount of such damages. Such documentation shall show the number of shares of Common Stock the Purchaser is forced to purchase (in an open market transaction) which the Purchaser anticipated receiving upon such conversion, and shall be calculated as the amount by which (A) the Purchaser’s total purchase price (including customary brokerage commissions, if any) for the shares of Common Stock so purchased exceeds (B) the aggregate principal and/or interest amount of the Note, for which such Conversion Notice was not timely honored.
 
10.  Registration Rights.
 
10.1  Registration Rights Granted. The Company hereby grants registration rights to the Purchaser pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement. 
 
10.2  Offering Restrictions. Except as set forth on Schedule 10.2 and except as previously disclosed in the SEC Reports or in the Exchange Act Filings, or stock or stock options granted (including future extensions thereto) to employees, officers or directors of the Company (these exceptions hereinafter referred to as the “Excepted Issuances”), neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries will, prior to the full repayment or conversion of the Note (together with all accrued and unpaid interest and fees related thereto), (x) enter into any equity line of credit agreement or similar agreement or (y) issue, or enter into any agreement to issue, any securities with a variable/floating conversion and/or pricing feature which are or could be (by conversion or registration) free-trading securities (i.e. common stock subject to a registration statement).
 
11.  Miscellaneous.
 
11.1  Governing Law, Jurisdiction and Waiver of Jury Trial.

THE COMPANY EXPRESSLY SUBMITS AND CONSENTS IN ADVANCE TO SUCH JURISDICTION IN ANY ACTION OR SUIT COMMENCED IN ANY SUCH COURT, AND THE COMPANY HEREBY WAIVES ANY OBJECTION WHICH IT MAY HAVE BASED UPON LACK OF PERSONAL JURISDICTION, IMPROPER VENUE OR FORUM NON CONVENIENS. THE COMPANY HEREBY WAIVES PERSONAL SERVICE OF THE SUMMONS, COMPLAINT AND OTHER PROCESS ISSUED IN ANY SUCH ACTION OR SUIT AND AGREES THAT SERVICE OF SUCH SUMMONS, COMPLAINT AND OTHER PROCESS MAY BE MADE BY REGISTERED OR CERTIFIED MAIL ADDRESSED TO THE COMPANY AT THE ADDRESS SET FORTH IN SECTION 11.9 AND THAT SERVICE SO MADE SHALL BE DEEMED COMPLETED UPON THE EARLIER OF THE COMPANY’S ACTUAL RECEIPT THEREOF OR THREE (3) DAYS AFTER DEPOSIT IN THE U.S. MAILS, PROPER POSTAGE PREPAID.

11.2  Severability. Wherever possible each provision of this Agreement and the Related Agreements shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law, but if any provision of this Agreement or any Related Agreement shall be prohibited by or invalid or illegal under applicable law such provision shall be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity or illegality, without invalidating the remainder of such provision or the remaining provisions thereof which shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby.
 
11.3  Survival. The representations, warranties, covenants and agreements made herein shall survive any investigation made by the Purchaser and the closing of the transactions contemplated hereby to the extent provided therein. All statements as to factual matters contained in any certificate or other instrument delivered by or on behalf of the Company pursuant hereto in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby shall be deemed to be representations and warranties by the Company hereunder solely as of the date of such certificate or instrument. All indemnities set forth herein shall survive the execution, delivery and termination of this Agreement and the Note and the making and repayment of the obligations arising hereunder, under the Note and under the other Related Agreements.
 
11.4  Successors. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein and under applicable securities laws, the provisions hereof shall inure to the benefit of, and be binding upon, the successors, heirs, executors and administrators of the parties hereto and shall inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by each person or entity which shall be a holder of the Securities from time to time, other than the holders of Common Stock which has been sold by the Purchaser pursuant to Rule 144 or an effective registration statement. The Purchaser shall not be permitted to assign its rights hereunder or under any Related Agreement to a competitor of the Company.
 
11.5  Entire Agreement; Maximum Interest.
