ARTICLE II
REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF HOLDER

 

As of the date hereof and as of the Closing Date, Holder represents and warrants to Issuer as follows:

 

Section 2.1.     Ownership of Exchanged Shares.

 

(a)     Holder is the sole record and beneficial owner of the Exchanged Shares. The Exchanged Shares are not subject to any liens or encumbrances of any kind or nature, and Holder has not granted any rights to any person or entity to purchase any of the Exchanged Shares. Holder has the sole right to transfer the Exchanged Shares to Issuer.

 

Section 2.2.     Authority; Non-Contravention.

 

(a)     Holder has all requisite power and authority to execute, deliver and perform its obligations under this Agreement.

(b)     The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by Holder and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby will not result in any violation of any statute or any order, rule or regulation of any court or governmental agency or body having jurisdiction over Holder or any of its properties or assets, except where such violation will not, individually or in the aggregate, prevent Holder from consummating the transactions contemplated hereby.

(c)     No consent, approval, authorization or order of, or filing or registration with, any court or governmental agency or body having jurisdiction over Holder or any of its properties or assets is required for the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by Holder or the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby.

 

Section 2.3.     Restrictive Legend. Holder acknowledges that the Issued Shares have not been registered under the Securities Act and, therefore, cannot be sold unless subsequently registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or an exemption from such registration is available in the opinion of counsel reasonably acceptable to Issuer. Holder acknowledges that the certificate representing the Issued Shares to be issued by Issuer to Holder hereunder will bear the following legend:

 

THE SHARES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, AND MAY NOT BE OFFERED OR SOLD IN THE ABSENCE OF AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT UNDER SAID ACT OR PURSUANT TO AN AVAILABLE EXEMPTION FROM, OR IN A TRANSACTION NOT SUBJECT TO, REGISTRATION UNDER SAID ACT IN THE OPINION OF COUNSEL REASONABLY ACCEPTABLE TO ISSUER.

Section 2.5.     Investment Intent. The Issued Shares are being acquired for the Holder’s own account for investment purposes only, not as a nominee or agent and not with a view to the resale or distribution of any part thereof, and Holder has no present intention of selling, granting any participation in or otherwise distributing the same. By executing this Agreement, Holder further represents that Holder does not have any contract, undertaking, agreement or arrangement with any person to sell, transfer or grant participation to such person or third person with respect to any of the Common Stock to be issued and exchanged by Issuer to Holder.

 

Section 2.6.     No General Solicitation. Holder acknowledges that neither the Issuer nor any person or entity acting on its behalf has offered to issue any of the Issued Shares to Holder by means of any form of general solicitation or advertising, including without limitation (i) any advertisement, article, notice or other communication published in any newspaper, magazine or similar media, or broadcast over television or radio, and (ii) any seminar or meeting whose attendees have been invited by any general solicitation or general advertising.

 

Section 2.7.     Access to Information. Holder acknowledges that it has had access to and has reviewed all documents and records relating to the Issuer, including, but not limited to, that certain Confidential Information Statement of the Issuer dated April 29, 2016, that it has deemed necessary in order to make an informed investment decision with respect to the transaction contemplated hereby; that it has had the opportunity to ask representatives of the Issuer certain questions and request certain additional information regarding the terms and conditions of transaction contemplated hereby and the finances, operations, business and prospects of the Issuer and has had any and all such questions and requests answered to its satisfaction; and that it understands the risks and other considerations relating to the transactions contemplated hereby.
