(a)                                  Authorization.  Such Purchaser is authorized and qualified and has full right and power to execute and deliver this Agreement and all other agreements and instruments contemplated hereby to which such Purchaser is a party, and to perform its obligations hereunder and thereunder. This Agreement and all other agreements and instruments contemplated hereby to which such Purchaser is a party have been duly authorized, executed and delivered by or on behalf of such Purchaser.

(b)                                 Investment Representations.

 

(i)                                     The Shares to be received by such Purchaser will be acquired by it for its own account (or in the case of a custodian, for the account of its affiliated funds), not as a nominee or agent, and not with a view to the sale or distribution of any part thereof in violation of applicable federal and state securities laws, and it has no current intention of selling, granting a participation in or otherwise distributing the same, in each case, in violation of applicable federal and state securities laws. By executing this Agreement, each Purchaser further represents that it does not have any contract, undertaking, agreement or arrangement with any person to sell, transfer or grant a participation to such person, or to any third person, with respect to any of the Shares to be received by such Purchaser, in each case, in violation of applicable federal and state securities laws.

 

(ii)                                  Such Purchaser has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters as to be capable of evaluating the merits and risks of its investment. Such Purchaser further represents that it has had, during the course of the transactions contemplated hereby and prior to its purchase of the Shares to be received by such Purchaser, the opportunity to ask questions of, and receive answers from the Company concerning the terms and conditions of the offering and to obtain additional information necessary to verify the accuracy of any information furnished to it or to which it had access. Such Purchaser understands that no federal or state agency has passed upon this investment or upon the Company, nor has any such agency made any finding or determination as to this investment.

 

(iii)                               Such Purchaser understands that the Shares to be received by such Purchaser may not be sold, transferred or otherwise disposed of without registration under the 1933 Act or an exemption therefrom, and that in the absence of an effective registration statement covering such Shares or an available exemption from registration under the 1933 Act, such Shares must be held indefinitely. Such Purchaser is prepared to bear the economic risk of this investment for an indefinite period of time. In particular, such Purchaser acknowledges that it is aware that such Shares may not be sold pursuant to Rule 144 promulgated under the 1933 Act unless all of the conditions of that Rule are met. Among the current conditions for use of Rule 144 by certain holders is the availability to the public of current information about the Company. Such information is not now available, and the Company has no current plans to make such information available. Such Purchaser represents that, in the absence of an effective registration statement covering such Shares, it will sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of such Shares only in a manner consistent with its representations set forth herein and then only in accordance with the Shareholders Agreement referred to in Article IV below.

(iv)                              Such Purchaser acknowledges that this investment is not recommended for investors who have any need for a current return on this investment or who cannot bear the risk of losing their entire investment. Such Purchaser acknowledges that: (i) it has adequate means of providing for its current needs and possible personal contingencies and has no need for liquidity in this investment; (ii) its commitment to investments which are not readily marketable is not disproportionate to its net worth; and (iii) its investment in the Shares to be received by such Purchaser will not cause its overall financial commitments to become excessive.

 

3.2                             Legends; Stop Transfer.

 

(a)                                     Each Purchaser acknowledges that all certificates evidencing the Shares shall bear the following legend:

 

“THE SHARES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AND HAVE BEEN ACQUIRED FOR INVESTMENT AND NOT WITH A VIEW TO, OR IN CONNECTION WITH, THE SALE OR DISTRIBUTION THEREOF. NO SUCH SALE OR DISTRIBUTION MAY BE EFFECTED WITHOUT AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT RELATED THERETO OR AN OPINION OF COUNSEL IN A FORM SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY THAT SUCH REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933.”

 

3.3                             The certificates evidencing the Shares shall also bear any legend required by any applicable state securities law.

 

ARTICLE IV

4.6                             Survival of Agreements, Representations and Warranties.  All agreements, representations and warranties contained herein or made in writing by or on behalf the Company or the Purchasers, as the case may be, in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement shall survive the execution and delivery of this Agreement and the sale and purchase of the Shares and payment therefor.
