Such notice shall specify the nature of such claim in reasonable detail and the indemnifying party shall be given reasonable access to any documents or properties within the control of the indemnified party as may be useful in the investigation of the basis for such claim. The failure to so notify the indemnifying party within such thirty-day period shall not constitute a waiver of such claim but an indemnified party shall not be entitled to receive any indemnification with respect to any additional loss that occurred as a result of the failure of such person to give such notice.
3 of 11
In the event any indemnified party is entitled to indemnification hereunder based upon a claim asserted by a third party, the indemnifying party shall be given prompt notice thereof, in reasonable detail. The failure to so notify the indemnifying party shall not constitute a waiver of such claim but an indemnified party shall not be entitled to receive any indemnification with respect to any Loss that occurred as a result of the failure of such person to give such notice. The indemnifying party shall have the right (without prejudice to the right of any indemnified party to participate at its expense through counsel of its own choosing) to defend or prosecute such claim at its expense and through counsel of its own choosing if it gives written notice to the indemnified party of its intention to do so not later than twenty days following notice of the claim to the indemnifying party or such shorter time period as required so that the interests of the indemnified party would not be materially prejudiced as a result of its failure to have received such notice from the indemnifying party; provided, however, that if the defendants in any action shall include both an indemnifying party and an indemnified party and the indemnified party shall have reasonably concluded that counsel selected by the indemnifying party has a conflict of interest because of the availability of different or additional defenses to the indemnified party, the indemnified party shall have the right to select separate counsel to participate in the defense of such action on its behalf, at the expense of the indemnifying party. If the indemnifying party does not so choose to defend or prosecute any such claim asserted by a third party for which any indemnified party would be entitled to indemnification hereunder, then the indemnified party shall be entitled to recover from the indemnifying party, on a monthly basis, all of its attorneys’ reasonable fees and other costs and expenses of litigation of any nature whatsoever incurred in the defense of such claim. Notwithstanding the assumption of the defense of any claim by an indemnifying party pursuant to this paragraph, the indemnified party shall have the right to approve the terms of any settlement of a claim (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld).
(b) The indemnifying party and the indemnified party shall cooperate in furnishing evidence and testimony and in any other manner which the other may reasonably request, and shall in all other respects have an obligation of good faith dealing, one to the other, so as not to unreasonably expose the other to an undue risk of loss. The indemnified party shall be entitled to reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenses reasonably incurred by it in connection with such cooperation. Except for fees and expenses for which indemnification is provided pursuant to Section 3.4, and as provided in the preceding sentence, each party shall bear its own fees and expenses incurred pursuant to this paragraph (b).

IV. Securities Representations. Seller hereby represents and warrants as of the date hereof and as of the Closing, as follows:
4.1 Purchase for Own Account. The Seller represents that he is acquiring the Shares solely for his own account and beneficial interest for investment and not for sale or with a view to distribution of the Shares or any part thereof, has no present intention of selling (in connection with a distribution or otherwise), granting any participation in, or otherwise distributing the same, and does not presently have reason to anticipate a change in such intention.
4.2 Ability to Bear Economic Risk.

The Seller acknowledges that the Seller has been furnished with such financial and other information concerning the GCI, the directors and officers of GCI, and the business and proposed business of GCI as the Seller considers necessary in connection with the Seller’s investment in the Shares. Seller has also had an opportunity to review the Term Sheet attached hereto as Exhibit C, and the GCI information that is publicly available at www.otcmarkets.com. As a result, the Seller is thoroughly familiar with the proposed business, operations, properties and financial condition of GCI and has discussed with officers of GCI any questions the Seller may have had with respect thereto. The Seller understands:

The Seller has have been advised that the Shares have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”), or qualified under the securities law of any state, on the ground, among others, that no distribution or public offering of the Shares is to be effected and the Shares will be issued by GCI in connection with a transaction that does not involve any public offering within the meaning of section 4(2) of the Act and/or Regulation D as promulgated by the SEC under the Act, and under any applicable state blue sky authority. The Seller understands that GCI is relying in part on the Seller’s representations as set forth herein for purposes of claiming such exemptions and that the basis for such exemptions may not be present if, notwithstanding the Seller’s representations, the Seller has in mind merely acquiring the Shares for resale on the occurrence or nonoccurrence of some predetermined event. The Seller has no such intention.
4.5 Seller Not Affiliated with Company. The Seller, either alone or with his professional advisers (i) is unaffiliated with, has no equity interest in, and is not compensated by, the Seller or GCI or any affiliate or selling agent of the Seller or GCI, directly or indirectly; (ii) has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters that he is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of an investment in the Shares; and (iii) has the capacity to protect his own interests in connection with his proposed investment in the Shares.
4.6 Further Limitations on Disposition. The Seller further acknowledges that the Shares are restricted securities under Rule 144 of the Act, and, therefore, any certificates reflecting the ownership interest in the Shares will contain a restrictive legend substantially similar to the following:
THESE SECURITIES HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “ACT”). THEY MAY NOT BE SOLD, OFFERED FOR SALE, PLEDGED OR HYPOTHECATED IN THE ABSENCE OF AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT AS TO THE SECURITIES UNDER THE ACT OR AN OPINION OF COUNSEL SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY THAT SUCH REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED.
Without in any way limiting the representations set forth above, the Seller further agrees not to make any disposition of all or any portion of the Shares unless and until:
(i) There is then in effect a registration statement under the Act covering such proposed disposition and such disposition is made in accordance with such registration statement; or

(ii) Such Seller shall have obtained the consent of GCI and notified GCI of the proposed disposition and shall have furnished GCI with a detailed statement of the circumstances surrounding the proposed disposition, and if reasonably requested by GCI, the Seller shall have furnished GCI with an opinion of counsel, reasonably satisfactory to GCI, that such disposition will not require registration under the Act or any applicable state securities laws.
Notwithstanding the provisions of subparagraphs (i) and (ii) above, no such registration statement or opinion of counsel shall be necessary for a transfer by such Seller to a partner (or retired partner) of Seller, or transfers by gift, will or intestate succession to any spouse or lineal descendants or ancestors, if all transferees agree in writing to be subject to the terms hereof to the same extent as if they were Seller hereunder as long as the consent of GCI is obtained, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld.
4.6 Piggyback Registration Rights. GCI hereby represents and warrants that if GCI at any time proposes to register any of its securities under the Act, including under an S-1 Registration Statement or otherwise, it will at such time give written notice to the Seller of its intention so to do. Upon the written request of Seller given within ten (10) days after receipt of any such notice, GCI will use its best efforts to cause the Shares to be registered under the Act (with the securities which GCI at the time proposes to register). All expenses incurred by GCI in complying with this section, including without limitation all registration and filing fees, listing fees, printing expenses, fees and disbursements of all independent accountants, or counsel for GCI and the expense of any special audits incident to or required by any such registration and the expenses of complying with the securities or blue sky laws of any jurisdiction shall be paid by GCI.
