The Company is a corporation duly incorporated, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the State of Delaware, and the Company is qualified to transact business as a foreign corporation in each jurisdiction in which qualification is required, except where the failure to so qualify would neither have nor reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. For the purposes of this Agreement, the term Material Adverse Effect shall mean any material adverse effect on the business, properties, assets, operations, results of operations or condition (financial or otherwise) of the Company and its subsidiaries, taken as a whole, or on the transactions contemplated hereby or by the agreements and instruments to be entered into in connection herewith or therewith, or on the authority or ability of the Company to perform its obligations hereunder.

The Company is subject to the reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act), and has filed all reports required thereby during the past 12 calendar months. Provided that the Purchaser is not deemed to be an underwriter with respect to any shares of Common Stock and, to the Companys knowledge, there exist no facts or circumstances (including any required approvals or waivers) that reasonably could be expected to prohibit the preparation and filing of the Registration Statement (as defined below).
3.3 Issuance, Sale and Delivery of the Securities. The Securities, upon sale and issuance in accordance with the terms of this Agreement (including when delivered against the payment by the Purchaser of the purchase price therefor), will be duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable. No preemptive rights or other rights to subscribe for or purchase any Securities exist with respect to the issuance and sale of the Securities by the Company pursuant to this Agreement that have not been waived or complied with. No further approval or authority of the Companys stockholders or the Board will be required for the issuance and sale of the Securities to be sold by the Company as contemplated herein.
3.4 Due Execution, Delivery and Performance of this Agreement. The Company has full legal right, corporate power and authority to enter into this Agreement and perform the transactions contemplated hereby. This Agreement has been duly authorized, executed and delivered by the Company.

(i) The Purchaser is knowledgeable, sophisticated and experienced in financial and business matters, in making, and is qualified to make, decisions with respect to investments in shares representing an investment decision like that involved in the purchase of the Securities, including investments in securities issued by the Company and comparable entities, and the Purchaser has undertaken an independent analysis of the merits and the risks of an investment in the Securities, based on the Purchasers own financial circumstances; (ii) the Purchaser has had the opportunity to request, receive, review and consider all information he deems relevant in making an informed decision to purchase the Securities and to ask questions of, and receive answers from, the Company concerning such information; (iii) the Purchaser is acquiring the Securities in the ordinary course and for his own account and with no present intention of distributing any of such Securities or any arrangement or understanding with any other persons regarding the distribution of such Securities; (iv) the Purchaser will not, directly or indirectly, offer, sell, pledge, transfer or otherwise dispose of (or solicit any offers to buy, purchase or otherwise acquire or take a pledge of) any of the Securities, nor will the Purchaser engage in any short sale that results in a disposition of any of the Securities by the Purchaser, except in compliance with the Securities Act and the rules and regulations thereunder (the Rules and Regulations) and any applicable state securities laws as currently interpreted on the date hereof;
(v) the Purchaser has, in connection with his decision to purchase the Securities, relied solely upon the representations and warranties of the Company contained herein, and, in making a decision to purchase the Securities, the Purchaser has not received or relied on any other communication or any investment advice or recommendation from Company or its representatives; and (vi) the Purchaser is an accredited investor within the meaning of Rule 501 under the Securities Act.

4.3 Investment Decision. The Purchaser understands that nothing in the Agreement or any other materials presented to the Purchaser in connection with the purchase and sale of the Securities constitutes legal, tax or investment advice. The Purchaser has consulted such legal, tax and investment advisors as it, in his sole discretion, has deemed necessary or appropriate in connection with his purchase of the Securities.
4.4 Risk of Loss. The Purchaser understands that his investment in the Securities involves a significant degree of risk, including a risk of total loss of the Purchasers investment, and the Purchaser has full cognizance of and understands all of the risk factors related to the Purchasers purchase of the Securities.

(a) Securities Legends. The Purchaser understands that the Securities will bear a restrictive legend in substantially the form set out in Section 4.5(b) until such time as such securities may be sold pursuant to Rule 144 without the requirement to be in compliance with Rule 144(c)(1) (or any successor thereto) promulgated under the Securities Act.

litigation, if such settlement is effected with the written consent of the Company), insofar as such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses (or actions in respect thereof as contemplated below) arise out of or are based upon (a) any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of any material fact contained in the Registration Statement, financial statements and schedules, and all other documents filed or incorporated by reference as a part thereof, as amended at the times of effectiveness of the Registration Statement, or that arise out of or are based upon the omission or alleged omission to state in any of them a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements in the Registration Statement or any amendment or supplement thereto not misleading or in the Prospectus or any amendment or supplement thereto not misleading in light of the circumstances under which they were made; provided, however, that the Company will not be liable for amounts paid in settlement of any such loss, claim, damage, liability or action if such settlement is effected without the consent of the Company, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, and the Company will not be liable in any such case to the extent that any such loss, claim, damage, liability or expense arises out of or is based upon (A) an untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission made in the Registration Statement, the Prospectus or any amendment or supplement thereto in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished to the Company by or on behalf of the Purchaser expressly for use therein, (B) the failure of the Purchaser to comply with the covenants and agreements contained herein or (C) the inaccuracy of any representation or warranty made by the Purchaser herein; (b) any misrepresentation or breach of any representation or warranty made by the Company in this Agreement or any other certificate, instrument or document contemplated hereby; (c) any breach of any covenant, agreement or obligation of the Company contained in this Agreement or any other certificate, instrument or document contemplated hereby or thereby; or (d) any cause of action, suit or claim brought or made against the Purchaser by a third party (including for these purposes a derivative action brought on behalf of the Company) and arising out of or resulting (A) from the execution, delivery, performance or enforcement of this Agreement or any other certificate, instrument or document contemplated hereby or thereby, (B) from any transaction financed or to be financed in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, with the proceeds of the issuance of the Securities or (C) solely from the status of such Purchaser or holder of the Securities as an investor in the Company, and the Company will promptly reimburse the Purchaser for reasonable legal and other expenses as such expenses are reasonably incurred by the Purchaser in connection with investigating, defending or preparing to defend, settling, compromising or paying any such loss, claim, damage, liability, expense or action.
7.2 By the Purchaser. The Purchaser will severally, but not jointly, indemnify and hold harmless the Company, each of its directors, each of its officers who signed the Registration Statement and each person, if any, who controls the Company within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act (a Control Person), against any losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses to which the Company, each of its directors, each of its officers who signed the Registration Statement or Control Person may become subject, under the Securities Act, the Exchange Act, or any other federal or state statutory law or regulation, or at common law or otherwise (including in settlement of any litigation, but only if such settlement is effected with the written consent of the Purchaser) insofar as such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses (or actions in respect thereof as contemplated below) arise out of or are based upon (a) any untrue or alleged untrue statement of any material fact contained in the Registration Statement, the Prospectus, or any amendment or supplement thereto, or that arise out of or are based upon the omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to
be stated therein or necessary to make the statements in the Registration Statement or any amendment or supplement thereto not misleading or in the Prospectus or any amendment or supplement thereto not misleading in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, in each case to the extent, but only to the extent, that such untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission was made in the Registration Statement, the Prospectus, or any amendment or supplement thereto, in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished to the Company by or on behalf of the Purchaser expressly for use therein; (b) any misrepresentation or breach of any representation or warranty made by the Purchaser in this Agreement or any other certificate, instrument or document contemplated hereby; and (c) any breach of any covenant, agreement or obligation of the Purchaser contained in this Agreement or any other certificate, instrument or document contemplated hereby; and will reimburse the Company, each of its directors, each of its officers who signed the Registration Statement and each such Control Person for any legal and other expense reasonably incurred by the Company, each of its directors, each of its officers who signed the Registration Statement or Control Person, as the case may be, in connection with investigating, defending, settling, compromising or paying any such loss, claim, damage, liability, expense or action; provided, however, that the Purchasers aggregate liability under this Section 7 shall not exceed the amount of aggregate net proceeds received by the Purchaser on the sale of the Securities pursuant to the Registration Statement and the Securities through such other means as is effected.
7.3 Procedures. Promptly after receipt by an indemnified party under this Section 7 of notice of the threat or commencement of any action, such indemnified party will, if a claim in respect thereof is to be made against an indemnifying party under this Section 7, promptly notify the indemnifying party in writing thereof, but the omission to notify the indemnifying party will not relieve it from any liability that it may have to any indemnified party for contribution or otherwise under the indemnity agreement contained in this Section 7 to the extent it is not prejudiced as a result of such failure. In case any such action is brought against any indemnified party and such indemnified party seeks or intends to seek indemnity from an indemnifying party, the indemnifying party will be entitled to participate in, and, to the extent that it may wish, jointly with all other indemnifying parties similarly notified, to assume the defense thereof with counsel reasonably satisfactory to such indemnified party; provided, however, if the defendants in any such action include both the indemnified party and the indemnifying party, and the indemnified party shall have reasonably concluded, based on an opinion of counsel reasonably satisfactory to the indemnifying party, that there may be a conflict of interest between the positions of the indemnifying party and the indemnified party in conducting the defense of any such action or that there may be legal defenses available to it and/or other indemnified parties that are different from or additional to those available to the indemnifying party, the indemnified party or parties shall have the right to select separate counsel to assume such legal defenses and to otherwise participate in the defense of such action on behalf of such indemnified party or parties. Upon receipt of notice from the indemnifying party to such indemnified party of its election to assume the defense of such action and approval by the indemnified party of counsel, the indemnifying party will not be liable to such indemnified party under this Section 7 for any legal or other expenses subsequently incurred by such indemnified party in connection with the defense thereof unless (a) the indemnified party shall have employed such counsel in connection with the assumption of legal defenses in accordance with the proviso to the preceding sentence (it being understood, however, that the indemnifying party shall not be liable for the expenses of more than one separate counsel, reasonably satisfactory to such indemnifying party, representing all of the indemnified parties who
are parties to such action) or (b) the indemnifying party shall not have employed counsel reasonably satisfactory to the indemnified party to represent the indemnified party within a reasonable time after notice of commencement of action, in each of which cases the reasonable fees and expenses of counsel shall be at the expense of the indemnifying party. In no event shall any indemnifying party be liable in respect of any amounts paid in settlement of any action unless the indemnifying party shall have approved in writing the terms of such settlement; provided, however, that such consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. No indemnifying party shall, without the prior written consent of the indemnified party, effect any settlement of any pending or threatened proceeding in respect of which any indemnified party is or could have been a party and indemnification could have been sought hereunder by such indemnified party from all liability on claims that are the subject matter of such proceeding.
(a) If the indemnification provided for in this Section 7 is required by its terms, but is, for any reason, held to be unavailable to or otherwise insufficient to hold harmless an indemnified party under Section 7.1, Section 7.2 or Section 7.3 in respect to any losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses referred to herein, then each applicable indemnifying party shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by such indemnified party as a result of any losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses referred to herein (i) in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative benefits received by the Company and the Purchaser from the private placement of the Securities hereunder or (ii) if the allocation provided by clause (A) above is not permitted by applicable law, in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect not only the relative benefits referred to in clause (A) above, but also the relative fault of the Company and the Purchaser in connection with the statements or omissions or inaccuracies in the representations and warranties in any of this Agreement and the Registration Statement, as the case may be, that resulted in such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses, as well as any other relevant equitable considerations.
(b) The relative benefits received by the Company on the one hand and the Purchaser on the other shall be deemed to be in the same proportion as the amount paid by the Purchaser to the Company for the Securities (but only with respect to the Securities that were sold by the Purchaser) (the Purchaser Payments) bears to the difference (the Difference) between the Purchaser Payments and the amount received by the Purchaser from such sales. The relative fault of the Company on the one hand and the Purchaser on the other shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether the untrue or alleged statement of a material fact or the omission or alleged omission to state a material fact or the inaccurate or the alleged inaccurate representation and/or warranty relates to information supplied by the Company or by the Purchaser and the parties relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such statement or omission.
(c) The amount paid or payable by a party as a result of the losses, claims, damages, liabilities and expenses referred to above shall be deemed to include, subject to the limitations set forth in Section 7.3, any legal or other fees or expenses reasonably incurred by such party in connection with investigating or defending any action
or claim. The provisions set forth in Section 7.3 with respect to the notice of the threat or commencement of any threat or action shall apply if a claim for contribution is to be made under this Section 7.4; provided, however, that no additional notice shall be required with respect to any threat or action for which notice has been given under Section 7.3 for purposes of indemnification.
(d) The Company and the Purchaser agree that it would not be just and equitable if contribution pursuant to this Section 7.4 were determined solely by pro rata allocation (if the Purchaser were treated as one entity for such purpose) or by any other method of allocation that does not take account of the equitable considerations referred to in this Section 7.4. Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section 7.4, the Purchaser shall not be required to contribute any amount in excess of the amount by which the Difference exceeds the amount of any damages that the Purchaser has otherwise been required to pay by reason of such untrue or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission. Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section 7.4, the Purchaser shall not be required to contribute any amount in excess of the amount of net proceeds received by such Purchaser from the sale of the Securities, less any other payments made by such Purchaser pursuant to this Section 7.
(e) No Person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Securities Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any Person who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation.
8. No Brokers or Finders. Each of the parties hereto represents that, on the basis of any actions and agreements by it, there are no brokers or finders entitled to compensation from the other party hereto in connection with the sale of the Securities to the Purchaser.
9. Notices. All notices, requests, consents and other communications hereunder shall be in writing, shall be mailed by first-class registered or certified airmail, e-mail, confirmed facsimile or nationally recognized overnight express courier postage prepaid, and shall be deemed given when so mailed and shall be delivered as addressed as follows:
