REPRESENTATIONS BY PARTICIPANT. In consideration of the Company's acceptance of participation, I make the following representations and warranties to the Company, to its principals, and to participating broker-dealers, if any, jointly and severally, which warranties and representations shall survive any acceptance of my participation in the Shares: (a) I have had the opportunity to ask questions and receive any additional information from persons acting on behalf of the Company to verify my understanding of the terms thereof and of the Company's business and status thereof, and that no oral information furnished to the undersigned or my advisors in connection with my participation in the Shares has been in any way inconsistent with other documentary information provided. (b) I acknowledge that I have not seen, received, been presented with, or been solicited by any leaflet, public promotional meeting, newspaper or magazine article or advertisement, radio or television advertisement, or any other form of advertising or general solicitation with respect to my participation in the Shares. (c) The Shares are being purchased for my own account for long-term investment and not with a view to, or for resale in connection with, any distribution or public offering thereof within the meanings of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and any applicable state securities laws. No other person or entity will have any direct or indirect beneficial interest in, or right to, the Shares. I or my agents or investment advisors have such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters relating to an investment of this type that will enable me to utilize the information made available to me in connection with the participation in the Shares to evaluate the merits and risks of participation and to make an informed investment decision. (d) I understand that (A) the Shares (1) have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws, (2) will be issued in reliance upon an exemption from the registration and prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act pursuant to Section 4(2) and/or Regulation D thereof and (3) will be issued in reliance upon exemptions from the registration and prospectus delivery requirements of state securities laws which relate to private offerings, and (B) I must therefore bear the economic risk of such investment indefinitely unless a subsequent disposition thereof is registered under the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or is exempt therefrom. I further understand that such exemptions depend upon, among other things, the bona fide nature of my investment intent as expressed herein. Pursuant to the foregoing, I acknowledge that the certificates representing the Shares acquired pursuant to this Subscription shall bear a restrictive legend substantially as follows: "THE SHARES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE ARE SUBJECT TO RESTRICTIONS ON TRANSFER UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, AND STATE SECURITIES LAWS, AND MAY NOT BE OFFERED FOR SALE, SOLD, ASSIGNED, TRANSFERRED, PLEDGED OR OTHERWISE DISPOSED OF UNLESS (I) REGISTERED UNDER THE APPLICABLE SECURITIES LAWS OR (II) AN OPINION OF COUNSEL, WHICH OPINION AND COUNSEL ARE BOTH REASONABLY SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY, HAS BEEN DELIVERED TO THE COMPANY AND SUCH OPINION STATES THAT THE SHARES MAY BE TRANSFERRED WITHOUT SUCH REGISTRATION." (e) I acknowledge that I have been advised that: (i) The Shares offered hereby have not been approved or disapproved by the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") or any state securities commission nor has the SEC or any state securities commission passed upon the accuracy or adequacy of any representations by the Company. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offense. (ii) In making an investment decision, I must rely on my own examination of the Company and the terms of the offering of the Shares, including the merits and risks involved. The Shares have not been recommended by any federal or state securities commission or regulatory authority. Furthermore, the foregoing authorities have not confirmed the accuracy or determined the adequacy of any representation. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offense. (iii) The Shares are "Restricted Securities" within the meaning of Rule 144 under the Securities Act, are subject to restrictions on transferability and resale and may not be transferred or resold except as permitted under the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws, pursuant to registration or exemption therefrom. (f) Other than the rights specifically set forth in the WWT Registration Rights Agreement, I represent, warrant and agree that the Company and the officers of the Company (the "Company's Officers") are under no obligation to register or qualify the participation in the Shares under the Securities Act or under any state securities law, or to assist the undersigned in complying with any exemption from registration and qualification. (g) I represent that I am an "accredited investor" within the meaning of Rule 501 of Regulation D under the Securities Act and I have executed the Certificate of Accredited Investor Status, attached hereto as Exhibit A. (h) I understand that the participation in the Shares is illiquid, cannot be readily sold as there will not be a public market for them and that I may not be able to sell or dispose of my participation in the Shares, or to utilize the Shares as collateral for a loan. I understand that the purchase of the Shares is a speculative investment and involves substantial risks and that I could lose my entire investment in the Shares. I must not purchase participation in the Shares unless I have liquid assets sufficient to assure myself that such purchase will cause me no undue financial difficulties and that I can still provide for my current and possible personal contingencies, and that the commitment herein for participation in the Shares, combined with other investments of mine, is reasonable in relation to my net worth. (i) I understand that my right to transfer my participation in the Shares will be restricted against transfers unless the transfer is not in violation of the Securities Act, the California Securities Law, and any other applicable state securities laws (including investment suitability standards), that the Company will not consent to a transfer of participation in the Shares unless the transferee represents that such transferee meets the financial suitability standards required of an initial participant and that the Company has the right, in its absolute discretion, to refuse to consent to such transfer. (j) I have been advised to consult with my own attorney or attorneys regarding all legal matters concerning an investment in the Company and the tax consequences of participation in the Shares, and have done so, to the extent I consider necessary. (k) I acknowledge that the tax consequences to me of investing in the Company will depend on my particular circumstances, and neither the Company, the Company's officers, any other investors, nor the partners, shareholders, members, managers, agents, officers, directors, employees, affiliates or consultants of any of them, will be responsible or liable for the tax consequences to me of an investment in the Company. I will look solely to and rely upon my own advisers with respect to the tax consequences of this investment. (l) I acknowledge that I have made the decision to invest in the Shares solely on the basis of the information set forth in the Company's Private Placement Memorandum (the "Memorandum"), dated _______________________, 2004, included herewith, and that no officer, director, or other person affiliated with the Company has given me any information or made any representations, oral or written, other than as provided in the Memorandum, on which I have relied upon in deciding to invest in the Shares, including without limitation, any information with respect to future operations of the Company or the economic returns which may accrue as a result of the purchase of the Shares. (m) All information which I have provided to the Company concerning myself, my financial position and my knowledge of financial and business matters is truthful, accurate, correct and complete as of the date set forth herein. I agree to furnish the Company such other information as the Company may reasonably request in order to verify the accuracy of the information contained herein and agree to notify the Company immediately of any material change in the information provided herein that occurs prior to the Company's acceptance of this Subscription. (n) I and my affiliates do not have, and during the 30 day period prior to the date of this Subscription, I and my affiliates have not entered into, any "put equivalent position" or short sale positions with respect to the Common Stock. (o) If I am not a United States person, I hereby represent that I have satisfied myself as to the full observance of the laws of my applicable jurisdiction in connection with any invitation to subscribe for the Shares or any use of this Subscription, including (i) the legal requirements within such jurisdiction for the purchase of the Shares, (ii) any foreign exchange restrictions applicable to such purchase, (iii) any governmental or other consents that may need to be obtained, and (iv) the income tax and other tax consequences, if any, that may be relevant to the purchase, holding, redemption, sale or transfer of the Shares.
