3. Representations, Warranties and Covenants of the Holder.
The Holder represents and warrants to and covenants and agrees with, the Company that:
(a) Holder acknowledges that the Exchange and the Exchange Warrant being issued to the Holder in connection with the Exchange are intended to be exempt from the registration requirement of the Securities Act pursuant to one or more exemptions thereunder;
(b) Holder has the financial ability to bear the economic risk of its effectuating the Exchange and holding the Exchange Warrant, has adequate means for providing for its current needs and personal contingencies and has no need for liquidity with respect to holding the Exchange Warrant.
(c) Holder is an “accredited investor” as that term is defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D of the Securities Act (17 C.F.R. 230.501(a)).
(d) The Holder is not subject to or obligated under any provisions of any law, regulation, order, judgment or decree which would be breached or violated by the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by the Holder and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby.
(e) The Holder understands that the Exchange Warrant and the shares of Company common stock underlying the Exchange Warrant (collectively, “Exchange Securities”) are “restricted securities,” as that term is defined in the Securities Act and the rules thereunder, have not been registered under the Securities Act, and that none of the Exchange Securities can be sold or transferred unless they are first registered under the Securities Act and such state and other securities laws as may be applicable or an exemption from registration under the Securities Act is available (and then the Exchange Securities may be sold or transferred only in compliance with such exemption and all applicable state and other securities laws). Holder acknowledges that all certificates representing any of the Exchange Securities will bear restrictive legends and hereby consents to the transfer agent for the Company’s common stock making a notation on its records to implement the restrictions on transfer described herein. The Holder is acquiring the Exchange Securities for investment and not with the view to making a “distribution” thereof within the meaning of the Securities Act.
(f) The Holder owns and holds, beneficially and of record, the entire right, title, and interest in and to the Warrants, free and clear of any and all pledges, liens, security interests, mortgage, claims, charges, restrictions, options, title defects or other encumbrances other than restrictions under the Securities Act and other applicable federal and state securities laws. Holder has not, in whole or in part, (x) assigned, transferred, hypothecated, pledged or otherwise disposed of the Warrants or its rights in or to the Warrants, or (y) given any person or entity any transfer order, power of attorney or other authority of any nature whatsoever with respect to the Warrants which would limit the Holder’s power to transfer the Warrants hereunder. Holder has the sole and unencumbered right and power to transfer and dispose of the Warrants, and the Warrants are not subject to any agreement, arrangement or restriction with respect to the voting or transfer thereof, except for this Agreement. No additional consideration for any purpose shall be due to Holder at the Exchange Closing, with respect to the Warrants, other than the issuance to the Holder of the Exchange Warrants. Upon delivery of the Warrants to the Company for cancellation, the Company will receive good and marketable title to the Warrants, free and clear of all pledges, liens, security interests, mortgage, claims, charges, restrictions, options, title defects or other encumbrances. No event of default has been declared by the Holder under the Warrants and no event of default exists or is continuing with respect to the Warrants.
4. Release. In consideration of the covenants, agreements and undertakings of the Parties under this Agreement, effective upon the Exchange Closing, Holder, on behalf of itself and its present and former parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, shareholders, managers, members, agents, representatives, permitted successors, and permitted assigns (collectively, “Releasors”) hereby releases, waives, and forever discharges the Company and its respective present and former, direct and indirect, parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, employees, officers, directors, shareholders, managers, members, agents, representatives, permitted successors, and permitted assigns (collectively, “Releasees”) of and from any and all actions, causes of action, suits, losses, liabilities, rights, debts, dues, sums of money, accounts, reckonings, obligations, costs, expenses, liens, bonds, bills, specialties, covenants, contracts, controversies, agreements, promises, variances, trespasses, damages, judgments, extents, executions, claims, and demands, of every kind and nature whatsoever, whether now known or unknown, foreseen or unforeseen, matured or unmatured, suspected or unsuspected, in law, admiralty, or equity (collectively, “Claims”), which any of such Releasors ever had, now have, or hereafter can, shall, or may have against any of such Releasees for, upon, or by reason of any matter, cause, or thing whatsoever from the beginning of time through the date of the Exchange Closing arising out of or relating specifically to the Warrants.
