ompany, and projected capital requirements and capital availability thereof; and (iii) the current cash flow of the Company, together with the proceeds the Company would receive, were it to liquidate all of its assets, after taking into account all anticipated uses of the cash, would be sufficient to pay all amounts on or in respect of its liabilities when such amounts are required to be paid.

The Company has not, and to its knowledge no one acting on its behalf has, (i) taken, directly or indirectly, any action designed to cause or to result in the stabilization or manipulation of the price of any security of the Company to facilitate the sale or resale of any of the Purchased Shares, (ii) sold, bid for, purchased, or, paid any compensation for soliciting purchases of, any of the Purchased Shares or (iii) paid or agreed to pay to any person any compensation for soliciting another to purchase any other securities of the Company, other than, in the case of clauses (ii) and (iii), compensation paid to the Company’s placement agent and any approved broker-dealers in co
nnection with the placement of the Purchased Shares.
(hh) Legend Removal. The Company agrees, upon a Purchaser’s reasonable request, to reissue certificates representing any of the Purchased Shares without the legend set forth in Section 4(j)(i) below: (i) while a registration statement covering the resale of such securities is effective under the Securities Act, (ii) following any sale of such securities pursuant to Rule 144 (assuming the transferor is not an affiliate of the Company), (iii) if such Securities are eligible for sale under Rule 144(k) (to the extent that the applicable Purchaser provides a certification or legal opinion to the Company to that effect), or (iv) if such legend is not required under applicable requirements of the Securitie
s Act (including controlling judicial interpretations and pronouncements issued by the Commission). Following the effective date of a registration statement, which includes the Purchased Shares, or at such earlier time as a legend is no longer required for the Purchased Shares and the Underlying Shares, the Company will, promptly following the delivery by a Purchaser to the Company or the Company’s transfer agent of a legended certificate representing such securities, deliver or cause to be delivered to such Purchaser a certificate representing such securities that is free from all restrictive legends. If requested by a Purchaser, certificates for securities subject to legend removal hereunder shall be transmitted by the transfer agent of the Company to the Purchasers by crediting the account of the Purchaser’s prime broker with the Depository Trust Company (“DTC”).
(jj) Equal Treatment of Purchasers. No consideration shall be offered or paid to any person to amend or consent to a waiver or modification of any provision of any of this Agreement unless the same consideration is also offered to all of the parties to such agreements. For clarification purposes, this provision constitutes a separate right granted to each Purchaser by the Company and negotiated separately by each Purchaser, and is intended for the Company to treat the Purchasers as a class and shall not in any way be construed as the Purchasers acting in concert or as a group with respect to the purchase, disposition or voting of Securities or otherwise.
4. Representations, Warranties and Certain Agreements of The Purchasers. Each Purchaser hereby represents and warrants to the Company, severally and not jointly, and agrees that:
(a) Organization, Good Standing and Qualification. The Purchaser has all corporate, membership or partnership power and authority required to enter into this Agreement and the other agreements, instruments and documents contemplated hereby, and to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby.
(b) Authorization. The execution of this Agreement has been duly authorized by all necessary corporate, membership or partnership action on the part of the Purchaser. This Agreement constitutes the Purchaser’s legal, valid and binding obligation, enforceable in accordance with its terms, except (i) as may be limited by (A) applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or other laws of general application relating to or affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally and (B) the effect of rules of law governing the availability of equitable remedies and (ii) as rights to indemnity or contribution may be limited und
er federal or state securities laws or by principles of public policy thereunder.
(c) Litigation. There is no Action pending to which such Purchaser is a party that is reasonably likely to prevent, enjoin, alter or delay the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.
(d) Purchase for Own Account. The Purchased Shares are being acquired for investment for the Purchaser’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, without prejudice, however, to such Purchaser’s right at all times to sell or otherwise dispose of all or any part of such securities in compliance with applicable federal and state securities laws and as otherwise contemplated by this Agreement. The Purchaser also represents that it has not been formed for the specific purpose of acquiring the Purchased Shares.
(e) Investment Experience. The Purchaser understands that the purchase of the Purchased Shares involves substantial risk. The Purchaser has experience as an investor in securities of companies and acknowledges that it can bear the economic risk of its investment in the Purchased Shares and has such knowledge and experience in financial or business matters that it 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.
(f) Accredited Investor Status. The Purchaser is an “accredited investor” within the meaning of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act.
(g) Reliance Upon Purchaser’s Representations. The Purchaser understands that the issuance and sale of the Purchased Shares to it will not be registered under the Securities Act on the ground that such issuance and sale will be exempt from registration under the Securities Act pursuant to Section 4(2) thereof, and that the Company’s reliance on such exemption is based on each Purchaser’s representations set forth herein.
(h) Receipt of Information. The Purchaser has had an opportunity to ask questions and receive answers from the Company regarding the terms and conditions of the issuance and sale of the Purchased Shares and the business, properties, prospects and financial condition of the Company and to obtain any additional information requested and has received and considered all information it deems relevant to make an informed decision to purchase the Purchased Shares. Neither such inquiries nor any other investigation conducted by or on behalf of such Purchaser or its representatives or counsel shall modify, amend or affect such Purchaser’s ri
ght to rely on the truth, accuracy and completeness of such information and the Company’s representations and warranties contained in this Agreement.
(i) Restricted Securities. The Purchaser understands that the Purchased Shares have not been registered under the Securities Act and will not sell, offer to sell, assign, pledge, hypothecate or otherwise transfer any of the Purchased Shares unless (i) pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act, (ii) such holder provides the Company with an opinion of counsel, in form and substance reasonably acceptable to the Company, to the effect that a sale, assignment or transfer of the Purchased Shares may be made without registration under the Securities Act and the transferee agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions of this
Agreement, (iii) such holder provides the Company with reasonable assurances (in the form of seller and broker representation letters) that the Purchased Shares or the Underlying Shares, as the case may be, can be sold pursuant to Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act (“Rule 144”) or (iv) pursuant to Rule 144(k) promulgated under the Securities Act following the applicable holding period. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, the Purchaser may transfer (without restriction and without the need for an opinion of counsel) the Purchased Shares to its Affiliates (as defined below) provided that each such Affiliate is an “accredited investor” under Regulation D, and such Affiliate agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement and shall have the rights of a Purchaser hereunder.
For the purposes of this Agreement, an “Affiliate” of any specified Purchaser means any other person or entity directly or indirectly controlling, controlled by or under direct or indirect common control with such specified Purchaser. For purposes of this definition, “control” means the power to direct the management and policies of such person or firm, directly or indirectly, whether through the ownership of voting securities, by contract or otherwise.
(i) Purchased Shares and Underlying Shares. The Purchaser agrees that the certificates for the Purchased Shares and Underlying Shares shall bear the following legend and that the Purchaser will comply with the restrictions on transfer set forth in such legend:
“THESE SECURITIES HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION OR THE SECURITIES COMMISSION OF ANY STATE IN RELIANCE UPON AN EXEMPTION FROM REGISTRATION UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “SECURITIES ACT”), AND, ACCORDINGLY, MAY NOT BE OFFERED OR SOLD EXCEPT PURSUANT TO AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OR PURSUANT TO AN AVAILABLE EXEMPTION FROM, OR IN A TRANSACTION NOT SUBJECT TO, THE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS OF THE SECURITIES ACT AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS AS EVIDENCED BY A LEGAL OPINION OF COUNSEL TO THE TRANSFEROR TO SUCH EFFECT, THE SUBSTANCE OF WHICH SHALL BE REASONABLY ACCEPTABLE TO THE COMPANY.”
The Company acknowledges and agrees that a Purchaser may from time to time pledge pursuant to a bona fide margin agreement with a registered broker-dealer or grant a security interest in some or all of the Purchased Shares to a financial institution that is an “accredited investor” as defined in Rule 501(a) under the Securities Act and who agrees to be bound by the provisions of this Agreement and, if required under the terms of such arrangement, such Purchaser may transfer pledged or secured Purchased Shares to the pledgees or secured parties. Further, no notice shall be required of such pledge. At the appropriate Purchaser’s expense, the Company will execute and deliver such reasonable documentation as a pledgee or secured party of Purchased Shares may reasonably request in connection with a pledge or transfer of t
he Purchased Shares, the preparation and filing of any required prospectus supplement under Rule 424(b)(3) under the Securities Act or other applicable provision of the Securities Act to appropriately amend the list of selling stockholders thereunder.
In addition, the Purchaser agrees that the Company may place stop transfer orders with its transfer agent with respect to such certificates in order to implement the restrictions on transfer set forth in this Agreement. The appropriate portion of the legend and the stop transfer orders will be removed promptly (but in no event later than three (3) business days) upon delivery to the Company of such satisfactory evidence as reasonably may be required by the Company that such legend or stop orders are not required to ensure compliance with the Securities Act. In addition, upon the declaration of the effectiveness of the Registration Statement which includes the Purchased Shares, the Company shall cause its counsel to deliver a blanket opinion (or separate opinio
ns if the transfer agent will not accept a blanket opinion) to its transfer agent to cause the stock certificates evidencing the Purchased Shares to be issued to the Purchasers free of any Securities Act restrictive legends assuming compliance with the prospectus delivery requirements, to the extent required by Rule 172 of the Securities Act. Each of the Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that the Company will endeavor to remove any Securities Act restrictive legends pursuant to this Section j(ii) upon the representation contained herein that the Purchasers will comply with the prospectus delivery requirements, to the extent required by Rule 172 of the Securities Act.
(k) Questionnaires. The Purchaser has completed or caused to be completed the Stock Certificate Questionnaire, and the answers to such questionnaires are true and correct as of the date of this Agreement; provided, that the Purchasers shall be entitled to update such information by providing written notice thereof to the Company before the effective date of the Registration Statement.
(l) Prohibited Transactions. During the last thirty (30) days prior to the date hereof, neither such Purchaser nor any Affiliate of such Purchaser, foreign or domestic, has, directly or indirectly, effected or agreed to effect any “short sale” (as defined in Rule 200 under Regulation SHO), whether or not against the box, established any “put equivalent position” (as defined in Rule 16a-1(h) under the 1934 Act) with respect to the Common Stock, borrowed or pre-borrowed any shares of Common Stock, or granted any other right (including, without limitation, any put or call option) with respect to the Common Stock or with respect
to any security that includes, relates to or derived any significant part of its value from the Common Stock or otherwise sought to hedge its position in the Company’ securities (each, a “Prohibited Transaction”).
(m) Form D Filing; Registration; Compliance With The Securities Act. The Company hereby agrees that it shall file in a timely manner a Form D relating to the sale of the Purchased Shares under this Agreement, pursuant to Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act;
