Each of the Investors hereby represents and warrants to the Company that the following representations are true and correct as of the date hereof and as of the Closing (except to the extent any such representations and warranties expressly relate to an earlier date, in which case such representations and warranties are true and correct as of such earlier date):

3.1 Authorization

Such Investor has full power and authority to enter into this Agreement, and such agreement constitutes its valid and legally binding obligation, enforceable in accordance with its terms except (a) as limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium, and other laws of general application affecting enforcement of creditors' rights generally, and (b) as limited by laws relating to the availability of specific performance, injunctive relief, or other equitable remedies.

3.2 Purchase Entirely for Own Account

This Agreement is made with such Investor in reliance upon such Investor's representations to the Company, which by such Investor's execution of this Agreement the Investor hereby confirms, that the portion of the Shares acquired by such Investor hereunder will be acquired for investment for the Investor's own account, not as a nominee or agent, and not with a view to the resale or distribution of any part thereof, and that the Investor has no present intention of selling, granting any participation in, or otherwise distributing the same. By executing this Agreement, such Investor further represents that such Investor does not have any contract, undertaking, agreement or arrangement with any person to sell, transfer or grant participation rights to such person or to any third person, with respect to any of the Shares.

3.3 Disclosure of Information

Such Investor believes it has received all the information that it considers material in determining whether to purchase the Shares. Such Investor further represents that it has had an opportunity to ask questions of and receive answers from the Company regarding the terms and conditions of the offering of the Shares and the business, properties, prospects and financial condition of the Company. The foregoing, however, does not limit or modify the representations and warranties of the Company in Section 2 of this Agreement or the rights of the Investors to rely thereon.

3.4 Investment Experience

Such Investor is an experienced investor in securities of companies and acknowledges that it is able to fend for itself, can bear the economic risk of its investment, including a total loss, and has such knowledge and experience in financial or business matters that it is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of the investment in the Shares. Such Investor represents that it has not been organized for the purpose of acquiring the Shares.

3.5 Accredited Investor

Such Investor is an "accredited investor" within the meaning of Rule 501 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act.

3.6 Restricted Securities

Such Investor understands that the Shares have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act, by reason of a specific exemption from the registration provisions of the Securities Act which depends upon, among other things, the bona fide nature of the investment intent and the accuracy of such Investor's representations as expressed herein. Such Investor understands that the Shares are characterized as "restricted securities" under applicable U.S. federal and state securities laws and that, pursuant to these laws, such Investor must hold the Shares indefinitely unless subsequently registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission and qualified by state authorities, or an exemption from such registration and qualification requirements is available. Other than as contained in the IRA, such Investor acknowledges that the Company has no obligation to register or qualify the Shares for resale. Such Investor further acknowledges that if an exemption from registration or qualification is available, it may be conditioned on various requirements including, but not limited to, the time and manner of sale, the holding period for the Shares, and on requirements relating to the Company which are outside of such Investor's control, and which the Company, other than as contained in the IRA, is under no obligation and may not be able to satisfy.

3.7 Further Limitations on Disposition

Without in any way limiting the representations set forth above, such Investor further agrees not to make any disposition of all or any portion of the Shares unless and until the transferee has agreed in writing for the benefit of the Company to be bound by (a) this Section 3, and (b) the IRA, provided and to the extent this Section 3 and such agreement are then applicable, and:

(i) There is then in effect a registration statement under the Securities Act covering such proposed disposition and such disposition is made in accordance with such registration statement; or

(ii) (A) Such Investor shall have notified the Company of the proposed disposition and shall have furnished the Company with a detailed statement of the circumstances surrounding the proposed disposition, and (B) if reasonably requested by the Company, such Investor shall have furnished the Company with an opinion of counsel, reasonably satisfactory to the Company, that such disposition will not require registration of such Shares under the Securities Act. It is agreed that the Company will not require opinions of counsel for transactions made pursuant to Rule 144, except in unusual circumstances.

(iii) Notwithstanding the provisions of Paragraphs (i) and (ii) of this Section 3.7, no such registration statement or opinion of counsel shall be necessary for a transfer by such Investor to an affiliated fund or funds, to an affiliated investment company or companies or to an entity under common investment management, or for a transfer by such Investor, if it is a partnership, to a partner of such partnership or a retired partner of such partnership who retires after the date hereof, or to the estate of any such partner or retired partners or the transfer by gift, will or intestate succession of any partner to his or her spouse or to the siblings, lineal descendants or ancestors of such partner or his or her spouse, if the transferee agrees in writing to be subject to the terms of this Agreement to the same extent as if the transferee were an original Investor hereunder.

3.8 Legends

It is understood that the certificates (if any) evidencing the Shares may bear one or all of the following legends (or substantially similar legends):

(a) "THESE SECURITIES HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED. THEY MAY NOT BE SOLD, OFFERED FOR SALE, PLEDGED OR HYPOTHECATED IN THE ABSENCE OF A REGISTRATION STATEMENT IN EFFECT WITH RESPECT TO THE SECURITIES UNDER SUCH ACT OR AN OPINION OF COUNSEL, OR OTHER EVIDENCE, SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY THAT SUCH REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED."
