(o)       The Purchaser understands that the Shares being acquired by it hereunder have not been registered under the Securities Act or under applicable state securities laws (“Blue Sky Laws”), in reliance upon exemptions contained in the Securities Act and Blue Sky Laws and any applicable regulations promulgated thereunder or interpretations thereof, and cannot be offered for sale, sold or otherwise transferred unless, among other things, the Shares subsequently are so registered or qualify for exemption from registration under the Securities Act and Blue Sky Laws. The Purchaser represents that it is able to bear the economic risk of investment in the Shares for an indefinite period of time. The Purchaser acknowledges that it is purchasing the Shares in good faith solely for its own account, for investment and not with a view toward resale or other distribution in violation of the Securities Act or Blue Sky Laws, and understands that the Shares shall not be disposed of by it in contravention of the Securities Act or any applicable Blue Sky Laws. The Purchaser is aware of the provisions of Rule 144 under the Securities Act which permit limited resale of securities purchased in a private placement.

 

5.          Nonpublic Information. The Seller further acknowledges and agrees that the Purchaser or affiliates of the Purchaser may now possess nonpublic information concerning the Company not known to the Seller, including confidential information which the Purchaser or its affiliates may have received from the Company directly, or by means of the service of Patrick Walsh (“Mr. Walsh”) as the Chief Executive Officer, Chairman and as a director of the Company, on a confidential basis or confidential information received by the Purchaser, its affiliates or Mr. Walsh from other sources. Such confidential information may include certain forecasts and projections, business plans and strategies and information relating to potential transactions relating to the Company (“Company Information”). The Company Information may or may not be material, may or may not have been publicly disclosed by or on behalf of the Company, and may or may not be available to the Seller from sources other than the Purchaser. The Seller acknowledges that such Company Information may be material to the Seller’s decision to sell the Shares, and that if such Company Information was made known to the Seller, it could cause the Seller to not proceed with, or delay the timing of, the sale of its Shares, or could cause the Seller to change the terms and conditions, including the Per Share Purchase Price, of the sale of its Shares. The Seller acknowledges that it has adequate information concerning the Shares and the business and financial condition of the Company to make an informed decision regarding the sale of the Shares, and has independently and without reliance upon the Purchaser, and based upon such information as the Seller has deemed appropriate, made its own analysis and decision to sell the Shares to the Purchaser. The Seller acknowledges that it is experienced, sophisticated and knowledgeable in the trading of securities and other instruments of private and public companies and understands the disadvantage to which it may be subject on account of any disparity of the access to, and possession of, such Company Information between the Seller and the Purchaser. The Seller also acknowledges that the Purchaser has no obligation to the Seller to disclose such Company Information. The Seller, on behalf of itself and its equity owners, members, managers, officers, partners, affiliates, attorneys, agents, representatives, beneficiaries, heirs, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Seller Related Parties”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, hereby:

 

(i)       agrees that neither the Purchaser nor any of its affiliates nor any of the Purchaser’s or its affiliates’ respective current or former equity owners, members, managers, officers, partners, attorneys, agents, representatives, beneficiaries, heirs, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Purchaser Released Parties”) shall have any liability to the Seller Related Parties with respect to, based upon, arising from, resulting from, or relating to directly or indirectly the existence, substance, possession, disclosure, or nondisclosure of any Company Information, whether arising directly or indirectly, primarily or secondarily, by contract or operation of law or otherwise, including, without limitation, as a matter of contribution, indemnification, set-off, rescission, or reimbursement;

 

 5 
 

 

(ii)       waives, to the maximum extent permitted by law, any right, claim or cause of action at law or in equity with respect to, arising from, based upon, resulting from or relating to directly or indirectly the existence, substance, possession, disclosure or nondisclosure of any Company Information, including, without limitation, pursuant to Sections 10(b) and 20A of the Exchange Act, or the rules and regulations promulgated by the SEC under the Exchange Act, or of any state statute or regulation;

 

(iii)       forever releases and discharges the Purchaser Released Parties of and from any and all suits, demands, obligations, liabilities, claims and causes of action, contingent or otherwise, of every kind and nature, whether based on federal, state (including, without limitation, federal and state securities laws) or foreign law, at law and in equity, whether asserted, unasserted, absolute, contingent, known or unknown, which the Seller Related Parties may have against the Purchaser Released Parties, or any of them, to the extent arising from, relating to, based upon, resulting from, relating to directly or indirectly, or in connection with the existence, substance, possession, disclosure or nondisclosure of any Company Information; and

 

(iv)       waives any and all protections afforded by any state or federal statute or regulation that would, if enforced, have the effect of limiting the enforceability or effectiveness of the foregoing releases or other foregoing provisions of this Agreement.

(f)       Delays or Omissions. No delay or omission to exercise any right, power or remedy accruing to any party under this Agreement, upon any breach or default of any other party under this Agreement, shall impair any such right, power or remedy of such non-breaching or non-defaulting party nor shall it be construed to be a waiver of any such breach or default, nor an acquiescence therein, nor a waiver of or acquiescence in any similar breach or default thereafter occurring; nor shall any waiver of any single breach or default be deemed a waiver of any other breach or default theretofore or thereafter occurring. Any waiver, permission, consent or approval of any kind or character on the part of any party of any breach or default under this Agreement, or any waiver on the part of any party of any provisions or conditions of this Agreement, must be in writing and shall be effective only to the extent specifically set forth in such writing.
