The information supplied by the Purchaser in writing expressly for inclusion or incorporation by reference in the Form 1-U (as hereinafter defined) and any amendment thereof or supplement thereto, will not, on the date submitted to the Company, contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact required to be stated therein or necessary in order to make the statements made therein, in light of the circumstances under which they are made, not misleading; provided, that such information shall only consist the name, address and other information that is required to be provided in the Form 1-U for purposes of identifying the Purchaser.
(d) No Litigation. There are no actions, suits, arbitrations, mediations, proceedings or claims pending or, to the knowledge of the Purchaser, threatened against Purchaser that seek to restrain or enjoin the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby.
(e) Securities Act Representations.
(i) Restricted Shares. The Purchaser represents that it understands that the Securities to be sold to it pursuant to this Agreement will not be registered pursuant to the registration requirements of the Securities Act and that the resale of such Securities is subject to certain restrictions hereunder and under federal and state securities laws. The Purchaser represents that it is acquiring such Securities for its own account, not as a nominee or agent, and not with a view to the distribution thereof in violation of applicable securities laws. The Purchaser further represents that it has been advised and understands that to the extent such Securities have not been registered under the Securities Act, such Securities must be held indefinitely unless (i) the resale of such Securities has been registered under the Securities Act, (ii) a sale of such Securities is made in conformity with the holding period, volume and other limitations of Rule 144 promulgated by the SEC under the Securities Act, or (iii) in the opinion of counsel reasonably acceptable to the Company, some other exemption from registration is available with respect to any proposed sale, transfer or other disposition of such Securities.
(ii) Legend. The Purchaser represents that it has been advised and understands that, subject to applicable securities laws, stop transfer instructions will be given to the Company’s Transfer Agent with respect to the Securities and that a legend, substantially in the form provided for in Section 5.1(b) hereof, setting forth the restrictions on transfer will be set forth on the certificates for the Issuable Shares or any substitutions therefor.
(iii) Certain Fees. Purchaser represents that it has not paid, and shall not pay, any commissions or other remuneration, directly or indirectly, to any third party for the solicitation of any transaction contemplated by this Agreement and no additional consideration from the Purchaser was received or will be received by the Company for the Securities.
(iv) Absence of Reliance. Purchaser understands and acknowledges that the issuance and transfer to it of the Securities has not been reviewed by the SEC or any state securities regulatory authority because such transaction is intended to be exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act, and applicable state securities laws. Purchaser understands that the Company is relying upon the truth and accuracy of, and Purchaser’s compliance with, the representations, warranties, acknowledgments and understandings of Purchaser set forth herein in order to determine the availability of such exemptions and the eligibility of Purchaser to acquire the Securities.
(v) Status of Purchaser. Purchaser has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters that it is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of Purchaser’s investment in the Company through Purchaser’s acquisition of the Securities. Purchaser is able to bear the economic risk of its investment in the Company through Purchaser’s acquisition of the Securities for an indefinite period of time. Purchaser can afford a complete loss of such investment and has no need for liquidity in such investment. Purchaser acknowledges that it has prior investment experience and that it recognizes and fully understands the highly speculative nature of Purchaser’s investment in the Company pursuant to its acquisition of the Securities. Purchaser acknowledges that it, either alone or together with its professional advisors, has the capacity to protect its own interests in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby.
(vi) No General Solicitation. Purchaser represents and warrants that it was not induced to invest in the Company (pursuant to the issuance to it of the Securities) by any form of general solicitation or general advertising, including, but not limited to, the following: (a) any advertisement, article, notice or other communication published in any newspaper, magazine or similar media (including via the Internet) or broadcast over the news or radio or (b) any seminar or meeting whose attendees were invited by any general solicitation or advertising.
(vii) Acknowledgement of Receipt of Information. The Purchaser has had an opportunity to ask questions and receive answers and materials, and to discuss the business of the Company and related matters, with certain key officers of the Company regarding the transactions contemplated hereby. The Purchaser hereby acknowledges and agrees that other than the Company’s representations and warranties set forth in Section 3.1 hereof, neither the Company nor any of its representatives makes or has made any representation or warranty, express or implied, at law or in equity, with respect to the business of the Company nor with respect to the Issuable Shares.
4.1 Furnishing of Information. As long as Purchaser owns Issuable Shares, the Company covenants to timely file (or obtain extensions in respect thereof and file within the applicable grace period) all reports required to be filed by the Company after the date hereof pursuant to the Securities Act or Exchange Act, as applicable. Upon the request of Purchaser, the Company shall deliver to Purchaser a written certification of a duly authorized officer as to whether it has complied with the preceding sentence. As long as Purchaser owns Issuable Shares, if the Company is not required to file reports pursuant to such laws, it will prepare and furnish to Purchaser and make publicly available in accordance with Rule 144(c) such information as is required for Purchaser to sell the Issuable Shares under Rule 144. The Company further covenants that it will take such further action as any holder of Issuable Shares may reasonably request, all to the extent required from time to time to enable such Person to sell such Issuable Shares without registration under the Securities Act within the limitation of the exemptions provided by Rule 144.
4.2 Integration. The Company shall not sell, offer for sale or solicit offers to buy or otherwise negotiate in respect of any security (as defined in Section 2 of the Securities Act) that would be integrated with the offer or sale of the Issuable Shares in a manner that would require the registration under the Securities Act of the sale of the Issuable Shares to Purchaser or that would be integrated with the offer or sale of the Issuable Shares for purposes of the rules and regulations of any Trading Market such that it would require stockholder approval prior to the closing of such other transaction unless stockholder approval is obtained before the closing of such subsequent transaction.
4.3 Securities Laws Disclosure; Publicity. The Company shall timely file a Current Report on Form 1-U (the “Form 1-U”) as required by this Agreement, and shall file a press release, in each case reasonably acceptable to Purchaser, disclosing the material terms of the transactions contemplated hereby. The Company and Purchaser shall consult with each other in issuing any press releases with respect to the transactions contemplated hereby, and neither the Company nor the Purchaser shall issue any such press release or otherwise make any such public statement without the prior consent of the Company, with respect to any such press release of Purchaser, or without the prior consent of Purchaser, with respect to any such press release of the Company, which consent shall not unreasonably be withheld or delayed, except if such disclosure is required by law, in which case the disclosing party shall promptly provide the other party with prior notice of such public statement or communication. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company shall not publicly disclose the name of Purchaser, or include the name of Purchaser in any filing with the SEC or any regulatory agency, without the prior written consent of Purchaser, except (i) as contained in the Form 1-U and press release described above, (ii) as required by federal securities law in connection with any registration statement under which the securities are registered, (iii) to the extent such disclosure is required by law, in which case the Company shall provide Purchaser with prior notice of such disclosure, or (iv) to the extent such disclosure is required in any SEC Report filed by the Company.
4.4 Shareholders Rights Plan. No claim will be made or enforced by the Company or, to the Knowledge of the Company, any other Person that Purchaser is an “Acquiring Person” under any shareholders rights plan or similar plan or arrangement in effect or hereafter adopted by the Company, or that Purchaser could be deemed to trigger the provisions of any such plan or arrangement, by virtue of receiving Issuable Shares under the Transaction Documents or under any other agreement between the Company and Purchaser. The Company shall conduct its business in a manner so that it will not become subject to the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended.
4.5 Corporate Existence. So long as Purchaser owns the Warrant, the Company shall not be party to any Fundamental Transaction unless the Company is in compliance with the applicable provisions governing Fundamental Transactions set forth in the Warrants.
4.6 Conduct of Business. The business of the Company shall not be conducted in violation of any law, ordinance or regulation of any governmental entity, except where such violations would not result, either individually or in the aggregate, in a Material Adverse Effect.
4.7 Passive Foreign Investment Company. The Company shall conduct its business in such a manner as will ensure that the Company will not be deemed to constitute a passive foreign investment company within the meaning of Section 1297 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.
REGISTER; TRANSFER AGENT INSTRUCTIONS; LEGEND
5.1 Transfer Restrictions
(a) The Issuable Shares may only be disposed of in compliance with state and federal securities laws. In connection with any transfer of Issuable Shares other than (i) pursuant to an effective Registration Statement or Rule 144, (ii) to the Company, (iii) to an Affiliate of Purchaser, or (iv) in connection with a pledge as contemplated in Section 5.1(b) hereof, the Company may require the transferor thereof to provide to the Company an opinion of counsel selected by the transferor and reasonably acceptable to the Company, to the effect that such transfer does not require registration of such transferred Issuable Shares under the Securities Act.
(b) Purchaser agrees to the imprinting, so long as is required by this Section 5.1 of the following legend, or substantially similar legend, on any certificate evidencing Issuable Shares that qualify to have the legend removed as provided below:
[NEITHER] THIS SECURITY [NOR THE SECURITIES INTO WHICH THIS SECURITY IS [CONVERTIBLE][EXERCISABLE]] HAS NOT [HAVE] BEEN REGISTERED WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION OR THE SECURITIES COMMISSION OF ANY STATE IN RELIANCE UPON AN EXEMPTION FROM REGISTRATION UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “SECURITIES ACT”), AND, ACCORDINGLY, MAY NOT BE OFFERED OR SOLD EXCEPT PURSUANT TO AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OR PURSUANT TO AN AVAILABLE EXEMPTION FROM, OR IN A TRANSACTION NOT SUBJECT TO, THE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS OF THE SECURITIES ACT AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS AS EVIDENCED BY A LEGAL OPINION OF COUNSEL TO THE TRANSFEROR TO SUCH EFFECT, THE SUBSTANCE OF WHICH SHALL BE REASONABLY ACCEPTABLE TO THE COMPANY. THIS SECURITY [AND THE SECURITIES ISSUABLE UPON [CONVERSION] [EXERCISE] OF THIS SECURITY]] MAY BE PLEDGED IN CONNECTION WITH A BONA FIDE MARGIN ACCOUNT WITH A REGISTERED BROKER-DEALER OR OTHER LOAN WITH A FINANCIAL INSTITUTION THAT IS AN “ACCREDITED INVESTOR” AS DEFINED IN RULE 501(a) UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OR OTHER LOAN SECURED BY SUCH SECURITIES.
The Company agrees to cause such legend to be removed immediately upon effectiveness of a Registration Statement, or when any securities are eligible for sale under Rule 144 and, if requested by Purchaser or the Transfer Agent, to promptly provide at the Company’s expense a legal opinion of counsel to the Company confirming that such legend may be removed. Company further acknowledges and agrees that Purchaser may from time to time pledge pursuant to a bona fide margin agreement with a registered broker-dealer or grant a security interest in some or all of the Issuable Shares to a financial institution that is an “accredited investor” as defined in Rule 501(a) under the Securities Act and who agrees to be bound by the provisions of this Agreement and, if required under the terms of such arrangement, Purchaser may transfer pledged or secured Issuable Shares to the pledgees or secured parties. Such a pledge or transfer would not be subject to approval of the Company and no legal opinion of legal counsel of the pledgee, secured party or pledgor shall be required in connection therewith. Further, no notice shall be required of such pledge. At Purchaser’s reasonable expense, the Company will execute and deliver such documentation as a pledgee or secured party of Issuable Shares may reasonably request in connection with a pledge or transfer of the Issuable Shares.
6.1 Termination. 6.2
(a) The Purchaser may elect to terminate this Agreement upon the occurrence of any of the following:

(ii) the Company is in breach or default of any Material Agreement, which breach or default could have a Material Adverse Effect;
(iii) the Company is in breach or default of this Agreement, any Transaction Document, or any agreement with Purchaser or any Affiliate of Purchaser; or

(b) This Agreement will automatically terminate if a Closing of the Initial Tranche has not occurred prior to March 31, 2021.
6.2 Effect of Termination. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary above, nothing contained in this Section 6 shall be deemed to release any party from any liability for any breach by such party of the terms and provisions of this Agreement or the other Transaction Documents or to impair the right of any party to compel specific performance by any other party of its obligations under this Agreement or the other Transaction Documents
7.1 Fees and Expenses. Each party shall pay the fees and expenses of its own advisers, counsel, accountants and other experts, if any, and all other expenses incurred by such party incident to the negotiation, preparation, execution, delivery and performance of the Transaction Documents. The Company shall pay all stamp and other taxes and duties levied in connection with the sale of the Issuable Shares, if any.

Unless a different time of day or method of delivery is set forth in the Transaction Documents, any and all notices or other communications or deliveries required or permitted to be provided hereunder shall be in writing and shall be deemed given and effective on the earliest of: (a) the date of transmission, if such notice or communication is delivered via facsimile or electronic mail prior to 5:30 p.m. Eastern time on a Trading Day and an electronic confirmation of delivery is received by the sender, (b) the next Trading Day after the date of transmission, if such notice or communication is delivered later than 5:30 p.m. Eastern time or on a day that is not a Trading Day, (c) three (3) Trading Days following the date of mailing, if sent by U.S. nationally recognized overnight courier service, or (d) upon actual receipt by the party to whom such notice is required to be given.

7.3 Amendments; Waivers. No provision of this Agreement may be waived or amended except in a written instrument signed, in the case of an amendment, by the Company and Purchaser or, in the case of a waiver, by the party against whom enforcement of any such waiver is sought. No waiver of any default with respect to any provision, condition or requirement of this Agreement shall be deemed to be a continuing waiver in the future or a waiver of any subsequent default or a waiver of any other provision, condition or requirement hereof, nor shall any delay or omission of either party to exercise any right hereunder in any manner impair the exercise of any such right.
7.4 Headings. The headings herein are for convenience only, do not constitute a part of this Agreement and shall not be deemed to limit or affect any of the provisions hereof.
7.5 Successors and Assigns. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties and their successors and permitted assigns. The Company may not assign this Agreement or any rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of Purchaser, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. Purchaser may assign any or all of its rights under this Agreement to any Affiliate.
7.6 No Third-Party Beneficiaries. This Agreement is intended for the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns and is not for the benefit of, nor may any provision hereof be enforced by, any other Person, except as otherwise set forth in Section 7.6 hereof.
7.7 Governing Law; Dispute Resolution. All questions concerning the construction, validity, enforcement and interpretation of the Transaction Documents shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without regard to the principles of conflicts of law that would require or permit the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Each party agrees that all legal proceedings concerning the interpretations, enforcement and defense of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and any other Transaction Documents (whether brought against a party hereto or its respective affiliates, directors, officers, shareholders, employees or agents) shall be commenced exclusively in the state and federal courts sitting in the City of New York. Each party hereby irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts sitting in the City of New York, Borough of Manhattan, for the adjudication of any dispute hereunder or in connection herewith or with any transaction contemplated hereby or discussed herein (including with respect to the enforcement of any of the Transaction Documents), and hereby irrevocably waives, and agrees not to assert in any suit, action or proceeding, any claim that it is not personally subject to the jurisdiction of any such court, that such suit, action or proceeding is improper or inconvenient venue for such proceeding. Each party hereby irrevocably waives personal service of process and consents to process being served in any such suit, action or proceeding by mailing a copy thereof via registered or certified mail or overnight delivery (with evidence of delivery) to such party at the address in effect for notices to it under this Agreement and agrees that such service shall constitute good and sufficient service of process and notice thereof. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to limit in any way any right to serve process in any manner permitted by law. The parties hereby waive all rights to a trial by jury. If either party shall commence an action or proceeding to enforce any provisions of the Transaction Documents, then the prevailing party in such action or proceeding shall be reimbursed by the other party for its reasonable attorneys’ fees and other costs and expenses reasonably incurred in connection with the investigation, preparation and prosecution of such action or proceeding.
7.8 Survival. The representations and warranties contained herein shall survive the Closings and the delivery and conversions of the Issuable Shares.
7.9 Execution. This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, all of which when taken together shall be considered one and the same agreement and shall become effective when counterparts have been signed by each party and delivered to the other party, it being understood that both parties need not sign the same counterpart. In the event that any signature is delivered by facsimile transmission or in a PDF by e-mail transmission, such signature shall create a valid and binding obligation of the party executing (or on whose behalf such signature is executed) with the same force and effect as if such facsimile signature page were an original thereof.
7.10 Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable in any respect, the validity and enforceability of the remaining terms and provisions of this Agreement shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby and the parties will attempt to agree upon a valid and enforceable provision that is a reasonable substitute therefor, and upon so agreeing, shall incorporate such substitute provision in this Agreement.
7.11 Replacement of Issuable Shares. If any certificate or instrument evidencing any Issuable Shares is mutilated, lost, stolen or destroyed, the Company shall issue or cause to be issued in exchange and substitution for and upon cancellation thereof, or in lieu of and substitution therefor, a new certificate or instrument, but only upon receipt of evidence reasonably satisfactory to the Company of such loss, theft or destruction and customary and reasonable indemnity, if requested. The applicants for a new certificate or instrument under such circumstances shall also pay any reasonable third-party costs associated with the issuance of such replacement Issuable Shares.
7.12 Remedies. In addition to being entitled to exercise all rights provided herein or granted by law, including recovery of damages, each of Purchaser and the Company will be entitled to specific performance under the Transaction Documents. The parties agree that monetary damages may not be adequate compensation for any loss incurred by reason of any breach of obligations described in the foregoing sentence and hereby agrees to waive in any action for specific performance of any such obligation the defense that a remedy at law would be adequate. Neither the Company nor Purchaser shall be liable for special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages suffered or alleged to be suffered by the other party or any third party, whether arising from or related to the Transaction Documents or otherwise.
7.13 Payment Set Aside. To the extent that the Company makes a payment or payments to Purchaser pursuant to any Transaction Document or Purchaser enforces or exercises its rights thereunder, and such payment or payments or the proceeds of such enforcement or exercise or any part thereof are subsequently invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set aside, recovered from, disgorged by or are required to be refunded, repaid or otherwise restored to the Company, a trustee, receiver or any other person under any law (including, without limitation, any bankruptcy law, state or federal law, common law or equitable cause of action), then to the extent of any such restoration the obligation or part thereof originally intended to be satisfied shall be revived and continued in full force and effect as if such payment had not been made or such enforcement or setoff had not occurred.
7.14 Time of the Essence. Time is of the essence with respect to all provisions of this Agreement that specify a time for performance.
7.15 Construction. The parties agree that each of them and/or their respective counsel has reviewed and had an opportunity to revise the Transaction Documents and, therefore, the normal rule of construction to the effect that any ambiguities are to be resolved against the drafting party shall not be employed in the interpretation of the Transaction Documents or any amendments hereto. The language used in this Agreement will be deemed to be the language chosen by the parties to express their mutual intent, and no rules of strict construction will be applied against any party.
7.16 Entire Agreement. This Agreement, together with the Exhibits, Appendices and Schedules hereto, contains the entire agreement and understanding of the parties, and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous agreements, term sheets, letters, discussions, communications and understandings, both oral and written, which the parties acknowledge have been merged into this Agreement. No party, representative, attorney or agent has relied upon any collateral contract, agreement, assurance, promise, understanding or representation not expressly set forth hereinabove. The parties hereby expressly waive all rights and remedies, at law and in equity, directly or indirectly arising out of or relating to, or which may arise as a result of, any Person’s reliance on any such assurance.
