3.2           Purchase for Own Account.  The Purchased Shares to be acquired by the Investor hereunder will be acquired for investment for such Investor’s own account, not as a nominee or agent, and not with a view to the public resale or distribution thereof within the meaning of the Securities Act, and such Investor has no present intention of selling, granting any participation in, or otherwise distributing the same, all other than by such Investor to affiliated funds under common control.  If not an individual, the Investor also represents that it has not been formed for the specific purpose of acquiring the Purchased Shares.
 
3.3           Disclosure of Information.  At no time was the Investor presented with or solicited by any publicly issued or circulated newspaper, mail, radio, television or other form of general advertising or solicitation in connection with the offer, sale and purchase of the Purchased Shares.  The Investor acknowledges that the Company is in the very early stages of development and therefore its future plans are highly speculative.  The Investor has received or has had full access to all the information it considers necessary or appropriate to make an informed investment decision with respect to the Purchased Shares to be purchased by such Investor under this Agreement and acknowledges that the business plans of the Company provided to the Investor (including any financial information and/or projections) were necessarily incomplete and were intended only to give the Investor a general idea of the Company’s future intentions.  The Investor further has had an opportunity to ask questions and receive answers from the Company regarding the terms and conditions of the offering of the Purchased Shares and to obtain additional information (to the extent the Company possessed such information or could acquire it without unreasonable effort or expense) necessary to verify any information furnished to such Investor or to which such Investor had access.  The foregoing, however, does not in any way limit or modify the representations and warranties made by the Company in Section 2.
 
3.4           Investment Experience.  The Investor understands that the purchase of the Purchased Shares involves substantial risk.  The Investor: (a) has experience as an investor in securities of companies in the development stage and acknowledges that the Investor is able to fend for itself, can bear the economic risk of such Investor’s investment in the Purchased Shares and has such knowledge and experience in financial or business matters that such Investor is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of this investment in the Purchased Shares and protecting its own interests in connection with this investment and/or (b) has a preexisting personal or business relationship with the Company and certain of its officers, directors or controlling persons of a nature and duration that enables such Investor to be aware of the character, business acumen and financial circumstances of such persons.  The Investor represents that (i) if the Investor is an individual, he or she resides in the state identified on Exhibit A, and (ii) if the Investor is an entity, then the office in which its investment decision was made is located at the address on Exhibit A.
 
3.5           Accredited Investor Status.  The Investor is an “accredited investor” within the meaning of Regulation D, Rule 501(a), promulgated under the Securities Act.
 
3.6           Restricted Securities.  The Investor understands that the Purchased Shares and the Conversion Shares are characterized as “restricted securities” under the Securities Act inasmuch as they are being acquired from the Company in a transaction not involving a public offering and that under the Securities Act and applicable regulations thereunder such securities may be resold without registration under the Securities Act only in certain limited circumstances.  In this connection, Investor represents that Investor is familiar with Rule 144 of the Securities Act, as presently in effect, and understands the resale limitations imposed thereby and otherwise by the Securities Act.  Investor understands that the Company is under no obligation to register any of the securities sold hereunder except as provided in the Investors’ Rights Agreement.  Investor understands that no public market now exists for any of the Purchased Shares and that it is uncertain whether a public market will ever exist for the Purchased Shares or the Conversion Shares.

3.8           Legends.  It is understood that the certificates evidencing the Purchased Shares and the Conversion Shares will bear the legends set forth below:

7.15           Severability.  If any provision of this Agreement is determined by any court or arbitrator of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, such provision will be enforced to the maximum extent possible given the intent of the parties hereto.  If such clause or provision cannot be so enforced, such provision shall be stricken from this Agreement and the remainder of this Agreement shall be enforced as if such invalid, illegal or unenforceable clause or provision had (to the extent not enforceable) never been contained in this Agreement.  Notwithstanding the forgoing, if the value of this Agreement based upon the substantial benefit of the bargain for any party is materially impaired, which determination as made by the presiding court or arbitrator of competent jurisdiction shall be binding, then both parties agree to substitute such provision(s) through good faith negotiations.

7.18           Delays and Omissions.  Except as expressly provided herein, no delay or omission to exercise any right, power or remedy accruing to any party to this Agreement upon any breach or default of any other party under this Agreement shall impair any such right, power or remedy of such non-defaulting party, nor shall it be construed to be a waiver of any such breach or default, or an acquiescence therein, nor of or in any similar breach or default thereafter occurring, nor shall any waiver of any single breach or default be deemed a waiver of any other breach or default theretofore or thereafter occurring.  Any waiver, permit, consent or approval of any kind or character on the part of any party of any breach or default under this Agreement, or any waiver on the part of any party of any provisions or conditions of this Agreement, must be in writing and shall be effective only to the extent specifically set forth in such writing.  All remedies, either under this Agreement or by law or otherwise afforded to any party to this Agreement, shall be cumulative and not alternative.

7.20           Injunctive Relief.  The Parties agree that damages cannot reasonably compensate the Parties in the event of a violation of the covenants and restrictions in this Agreement and that it may be difficult to ascertain the damages which would be suffered by the Parties in such cases.  Accordingly, the Parties hereby agree and consent that, in the event of any such actual or threatened breach or violation, notwithstanding Section 7.19, any party may obtain injunctive relief in order to prevent the potential or continuing violation of the terms of this Agreement from any court of competent jurisdiction located in Orange County, California; provided, however, that any determination of the fair market value of securities shall be made by binding arbitration in accordance with the provisions of Section 7.19 above, and such arbitration may proceed concurrently with any action for injunctive relief.  The award of permanent or temporary injunctive relief shall in no way limit any other remedies to which a party may be entitled as a result of any such breach.
