Representations and Warranties by Purchaser. Each Purchaser, severally and not jointly, represents and warrants to Company as of the Closing Date (or Additional Closing Date, as applicable) as follows: (a) Investment Intent: Authority. This Agreement is made with Purchaser in reliance upon Purchaser's representation to Company, evidenced by Purchaser's execution of this 3 <PAGE> Agreement, that Purchaser is acquiring the Shares, the Warrants and the Warrant Shares for investment for Purchaser's own account, not as nominee or agent, for investment and not with a view to, or for resale in connection with, any distribution or public offering thereof within the meaning of the 1933 Act; provided, however, that by making the representations herein, Purchaser does not agree to hold any of the Shares, the Warrants and the Warrant Shares for any minimum or other specific term and reserves the right to dispose of the Shares, the Warrants and the Warrant Shares at any time in accordance with or pursuant to a registration statement or an exemption under the 1933 Act. Purchaser has the requisite right, power, authority and capacity to enter into and perform this Agreement and the Agreement will constitute a valid and binding obligation upon Purchaser, except as the same may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, moratorium, and other laws of general application affecting the enforcement of creditors' rights.
