The Company has not embedded in any of its publicly-released products any open source, copyleft or community source code distributed under any license that imposes specified obligations upon the Company, including but not limited to any libraries or code licensed under any General Public License or Lesser General Public License. For purposes of this Subsection 2.8, the Company shall be deemed to have knowledge of a patent right if the Company has actual knowledge (as defined in Section 1.4(h) of this Agreement) of the patent right.

The execution, delivery and performance of the Transaction Agreements on the part of the Company and the consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Agreements on the part of the Company will not result in any such violation or be in conflict with or constitute, with or without the passage of time and giving of notice, either (i) a default under any such provision, instrument, contract, agreement, judgment, order, writ or decree, or (ii) an event which results in the creation of any lien, charge or encumbrance upon any assets of the Company or the suspension, revocation, forfeiture, or nonrenewal of any material permit or license applicable to the Company.

The Company maintains and will continue to maintain a standard system of accounting established and administered in accordance with GAAP.
2.15 Changes. Since the Balance Sheet Date there has not been:

Neither the execution or delivery of the Transaction Agreements, nor the carrying on of the Company’s business by the employees of the Company, nor the conduct of the Company’s business as now conducted and as presently proposed to be conducted, will, to the Company’s knowledge, conflict with or result in a breach of the terms, conditions, or provisions of, or constitute a default under, any contract, covenant or instrument under which any such employee is now obligated. The Company has complied in all material respects with all applicable state and federal equal employment opportunity laws and with other laws related to employment, including those related to wages, hours, worker classification and collective bargaining.
To the Company’s knowledge, no Key Employee intends to terminate employment with the Company or is otherwise likely to become unavailable to continue as a Key Employee, nor does the Company have a present intention to terminate the employment of any of the foregoing. The employment of each employee of the Company is terminable at the will of the Company.

3. Representations and Warranties of the Purchasers. Each Purchaser hereby represents and warrants to the Company, severally and not jointly, that:
3.1 Authorization. The Purchaser has full power and authority to enter into the Transaction Agreements. The Transaction Agreements to which the Purchaser is a party, when executed and delivered by the Purchaser, will constitute valid and legally binding obligations of the Purchaser, enforceable in accordance with their terms, except (a) as limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium, fraudulent conveyance and any other laws of general application affecting enforcement of creditors’ rights generally, and as limited by laws relating to the availability of specific performance, injunctive relief or other equitable remedies, or (b) to the extent the indemnification provisions contained in the Investors’ Rights Agreement may be limited by applicable federal or state securities laws.
3.2 Purchase Entirely for Own Account. This Agreement is made with the Purchaser in reliance upon the Purchaser’s representation to the Company, which by the Purchaser’s execution of this Agreement, the Purchaser hereby confirms, that the Shares and the Conversion Shares (collectively, the “Securities”) to be acquired by the Purchaser will be acquired for investment for the Purchaser’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 Purchaser has no present intention of selling, granting any participation in, or otherwise distributing the same. By executing this Agreement, the Purchaser further represents that the Purchaser does not presently have any contract, undertaking, agreement or arrangement with any Person to sell, transfer or grant participations to such Person or to any third Person, with respect to any of the Securities. The Purchaser has not been formed for the specific purpose of acquiring the Securities.
3.3 Disclosure of Information. The Purchaser has had an opportunity to discuss the Company’s business, management, financial affairs and the terms and conditions of the offering of the Securities with the Company’s management and has had an opportunity to review the Company’s facilities and such books and records and material contracts as the Purchaser deemed necessary to its determination to purchase the Securities. The Purchaser has relied only upon the information provided to him or her in writing by the Company, or information from books and records of the Company. No oral representations have been made to Purchaser or his or her advisor(s) by the Company in connection with the offering of Securities which were not contained in, or were inconsistent with, Section 2 of this Agreement. The foregoing, however, does not limit or modify the representations and warranties of the Company in Section 2 of this Agreement or the right of the Purchasers to rely thereon.
3.4 Restricted Securities. The Purchaser understands that the Securities 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 the Purchaser’s representations as expressed herein. The Purchaser understands that the Securities are “restricted securities” under applicable U.S. federal and state securities laws and that, pursuant to these laws, the Purchaser must hold the Securities indefinitely unless they are registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission and qualified by state authorities, or an exemption from such registration and qualification requirements is available. The Purchaser acknowledges that the Company has no obligation to register or qualify the Securities for resale except as set forth in the Investors’ Rights Agreement. The Purchaser further acknowledges that (a) there is no assurance that any exemption from registration or qualification will be available, and (b) 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 Securities, and on requirements relating to the Company which are outside of the Purchaser’s control, and which the Company is under no obligation and may not be able to satisfy, and therefore that there is no assurance that any such exemption will allow the Purchaser to dispose of, or otherwise transfer, all or any portion of the Securities.
3.5 No Public Market. The Purchaser understands that no public market now exists for the Securities, and that the Company has made no assurances that a public market will ever exist for the Securities.
3.6 Legends. The Purchaser understands that the Securities and any securities issued in respect of or exchange for the Securities, may bear one or all of the following legends:
“THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, AND HAVE BEEN ACQUIRED FOR INVESTMENT AND NOT WITH A VIEW TO, OR IN CONNECTION WITH, THE SALE OR DISTRIBUTION THEREOF. NO SALE, TRANSFER, ASSIGNMENT, PLEDGE OR HYPOTHOCATION OF SUCH SECURITIES MAY BE EFFECTED WITHOUT AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT RELATED THERETO OR AN OPINION OF COUNSEL IN A FORM SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY STATING THAT SUCH SALE, TRANSFER, ASSIGNMENT, PLEDGE OR HYPOTHOCATION IS EXEMPT FROM THE REGISTRATION AND PROSPECTUS DELIVERY REQUIREMENTS UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED.”
(a) Any legend set forth in, or required by, the other Transaction Agreements.
(b) Any legend required by the securities laws of any state to the extent such laws are applicable to the Securities represented by the certificate so legended.
3.7 Relationship to Company; Sophistication; Experience. The Purchaser either (i) has a preexisting business or personal relationship with the Company and/or any of its officers, directors or controlling persons or (ii) such Purchaser, either alone or with his or her purchaser representative(s), has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters that he is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of the prospective investment in the Securities. Each purchaser representative, if any, in connection with the Purchaser’s investment in the Securities, has confirmed in writing the specific details of any and all past, present or future relationships, actual or contemplated, between the Purchaser or the Purchaser’s affiliates and the Company or any of the Company’s affiliates.
3.8 Accredited Investor. The Purchaser is an accredited investor as defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act.
3.9 Purchaser’s Liquidity. The Purchaser (i) has no need for liquidity in the Purchaser’s investment, (ii) is able to bear the substantial economic risks of an investment in the Securities for an indefinite period and (iii) at the present time, can afford a complete loss of such investment. The Purchaser’s current commitments to illiquid investments is not disproportionate to the Purchaser’s net worth, and the Purchaser’s investment in the Securities will not cause such commitment to become disproportionate.
3.10 Risks. The Purchaser is aware that the Securities are highly speculative and that there can be no assurance as to what return, if any, there may be. The Purchaser is aware that the Company may issue additional securities in the future which could result in the dilution of the Purchaser’s ownership interest in the Company.
3.11 Foreign Investors. If the Purchaser is not a United States person (as defined by Section 7701(a)(30) of the Code), the Purchaser hereby represents that it has satisfied itself as to the full observance of the laws of its jurisdiction in connection with any invitation to subscribe for the Securities or any use of this Agreement, including (i) the legal requirements within its jurisdiction for the purchase of the Securities, (ii) any foreign exchange restrictions applicable to such purchase, (iii) any governmental or other consents that may need to be obtained, and (iv) the income tax and other tax consequences, if any, that may be relevant to the purchase, holding, redemption, sale, or transfer of the Securities. The Purchaser’s subscription and payment for and continued beneficial ownership of the Securities will not violate any applicable securities or other laws of the Purchaser’s jurisdiction
3.12 No General Solicitation. Neither the Purchaser, nor any of its officers, directors, employees, agents, stockholders or partners has either directly or indirectly, including through a broker or finder (a) engaged in any general solicitation, or (b) published any advertisement in connection with the offer and sale of the Securities. Further, the Purchaser was not offered or sold the Securities, directly or indirectly, by means of any form of general solicitation or general advertisement, including (i) any advertisement, article, notice or other communication published in any newspaper, magazine or similar medium or broadcast over television, radio or the Internet or (ii) any seminar or other meeting whose attendees had been invited by general solicitation or general advertising.
3.13 Exculpation Among Purchasers. The Purchaser acknowledges that it is not relying upon any Person, other than the Company and its officers and directors, in making its investment or decision to invest in the Company. The Purchaser agrees that neither any Purchaser nor the respective controlling Persons, officers, directors, partners, agents, or employees of any Purchaser shall be liable to any other Purchaser for any action heretofore taken or omitted to be taken by any of them in connection with the purchase of the Securities.
3.14 Residence. If the Purchaser is an individual, then the Purchaser is at least 21 years of age and resides in the state or province identified in the address of the Purchaser set forth on Exhibit A; if the Purchaser is a partnership, corporation, limited liability company or other entity, then the Purchaser is authorized and otherwise duly qualified to purchase and hold the Securities, and the office or offices of the Purchaser in which its principal place of business is identified in the address or addresses of the Purchaser set forth on Exhibit A.
3.15 Consent to Promissory Note Conversion and Termination. Each Purchaser, to the extent that such Purchaser, as set forth on the Schedule of Purchasers, is a holder of any promissory note of the Company being converted and/or cancelled in consideration of the issuance hereunder of Shares to such Purchaser, hereby agrees that the entire amount owed to such Purchaser under such note is being tendered to the Company in exchange for the applicable Shares set forth on the Schedule of Purchasers, and effective upon the Company’s and such Purchaser’s execution and delivery of this Agreement, without any further action required by the Company or such Purchaser, such note and all obligations set forth therein shall be immediately deemed repaid in full and terminated in their entirety, including, but not limited to, any security interest effected therein.

SLP believes that its representation of the Company in the Financing will not adversely affect its relationship with those of the Purchasers who are clients of SLP, and that its representation of those Purchasers in matters unrelated to the Financing will not adversely affect SLP’s representation of the Company in the Financing. The applicable rules of professional conduct require that SLP inform the parties hereunder of this dual representation and obtain their consent to SLP’s representation of the Company, and their waiver of the conflict of interest which arises from their representation of the Company adverse to any of the Purchaser who are clients of SLP.
