4. Investment and Taxation Representations. In connection with the purchase of the
Shares, Purchaser represents to the Company the following:
(a) Purchaser is aware of the Companys business affairs and financial condition and has
acquired sufficient information about the Company to reach an informed and knowledgeable decision
to acquire the Shares. Purchaser is purchasing these securities for investment for his or her own
account only and not with a view to, or for resale in connection with, any distribution thereof
within the meaning of the Securities Act or under any applicable provision of state law. Purchaser
does not have any present intention to transfer the Shares to any person or entity.
(b) Purchaser understands that the Shares have not been registered under the Securities Act by
reason of a specific exemption therefrom, which exemption depends upon, among other things, the
bona fide nature of Purchasers investment intent as expressed herein.
(c) Purchaser further acknowledges and understands that the securities must be held
indefinitely unless they are subsequently registered under the Securities Act or an exemption from
such registration is available. Purchaser further acknowledges and understands that the Company is
under no obligation to register the securities. Purchaser understands that the certificate(s)
evidencing the securities will be imprinted with a legend which prohibits the transfer of the
securities unless they are registered or such registration is not required in the opinion of
counsel for the Company.
(d) Purchaser is familiar with the provisions of Rules 144 and 701, each promulgated under the
Securities Act, which, in substance, permit limited public resale of restricted securities
acquired, directly or indirectly, from the issuer of the securities (or from an affiliate of such
issuer), in a non-public offering subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions. Purchaser
understands that the Company provides no assurances as to whether he or she will be able to resell
any or all of the Shares pursuant to Rule 144 or Rule 701, which rules require, among other things,
that the Company be subject to the reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934,
as amended, that resales of securities take place only after the holder of the Shares has held the
Shares for certain specified time periods, and under certain circumstances, that resales of
securities be limited in volume and take place only pursuant to brokered transactions.
Notwithstanding this paragraph (d), Purchaser acknowledges and agrees to the restrictions set forth
in paragraph (e) below.
(e) Purchaser further understands that in the event all of the applicable requirements of Rule
144 or 701 are not satisfied, registration under the Securities Act, compliance with Regulation A,
or some other registration exemption will be required; and that, notwithstanding the fact that
Rules 144 and 701 are not exclusive, the Staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission has
expressed its opinion that persons proposing to sell private placement securities other than in a
registered offering and otherwise than pursuant to Rule 144 or 701 will have a substantial burden
of proof in establishing that an exemption from registration is available for such offers or sales,
and that such persons and their respective brokers who participate in such transactions do so at
their own risk.
