Such Investor is an “accredited investor” as such term is defined in Rule 501 of Regulation D under the Securities Act. The offer to sell the Shares was directly communicated to such Investor by the Company. At no time was such Investor presented with or solicited by any leaflet, advertisement, article, notice or other communication published in any newspaper, magazine, or similar media or broadcast over television or radio, or any other form of general advertising, or solicited or invited to attend a promotional meeting or any seminar or meeting by any general solicitation or general advertising.

Investor will not sell, transfer, pledge or otherwise dispose of or encumber any of the Shares that Investor receives unless and until (i) such shares are subsequently registered under the Securities Act and each applicable state securities law; or (ii) (1) an exemption from such registration is available thereunder, and (2) Investor has notified the Company of the proposed transfer and has furnished the Company with an opinion of counsel, reasonably satisfactory to the Company, that such transfer will not require registration of such shares under the Securities Act.
