This Agreement has been (or upon delivery will have been) duly executed by Pubco and, when delivered in accordance with the terms hereof, will constitute the valid and binding obligation of Pubco enforceable against Pubco in accordance with its terms, except: (i) as limited by general equitable principles and applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium and other laws of general application affecting enforcement of creditors’ rights generally, (ii) as limited by laws relating to the availability of specific performance, injunctive relief or other equitable remedies and (iii) insofar as indemnification and contribution provisions may be limited by applicable law.

4.4 No Conflicts. The execution, delivery and performance by Pubco of this Agreement and the consummation by Pubco of the other transactions to which it is a party and as contemplated hereby do not and will not: (i) conflict with or violate any provision of Pubco’s or any Pubco Subsidiary’s certificate or articles of incorporation, bylaws or other organizational or charter documents, (ii) conflict with, or constitute a default (or an event that with notice or lapse

The issuance of the Pubco Shares will not obligate Pubco to issue shares of Pubco’s common stock or other securities to any Person (other than the Premier Power Owners) and will not result in a right of any holder of Pubco securities to adjust the exercise, conversion, exchange or reset price under any of such securities. All of the outstanding shares of capital stock of Pubco are validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable, have been issued in compliance with all federal and state securities laws, and none of such outstanding shares was issued in violation of any preemptive rights or similar rights to subscribe for or purchase securities.

No executive officer, to the knowledge of Pubco, is, or is now expected to be, in violation of any material term of any employment contract, confidentiality, disclosure or proprietary information agreement or non-competition agreement, or any other contract or agreement or any restrictive covenant in favor of any third party, and the continued employment of each such executive officer does not subject Pubco or any of its Pubco Subsidiaries to any liability with respect to any of the foregoing matters. Pubco and its Pubco Subsidiaries are in compliance with all U.S. federal, state, local and foreign laws and regulations relating to employment and employment practices, terms and conditions of employment and wages and hours, except where the failure to be in compliance could not, individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.
