SALE AND PURCHASE OF THE SHARES
1.1 Sale of the Shares. Upon execution of this Agreement (the "Closing"), subject to the terms and conditions herein set forth, and on the basis of the representations, warranties and agreements herein contained, SELLER shall sell to PURCHASER, and PURCHASER shall purchase from SELLER, the Shares.

1.3 Consideration and Payment for the Shares. In consideration for the Shares, PURCHASER has provided consulting services valued at $11.42 ($0.001 per Share).
REPRESENTATIONS AND COVENANTS OF SELLER AND PURCHASER
2.1 SELLER hereby represents and warrants that:
(a) The Shares issued hereunder (the "Shares") have been duly authorized by the appropriate corporate action of SELLER.
(b) SELLER shall transfer title, in and to the Shares to PURCHASER free and clear of all liens, security interests, pledges, encumbrances, charges, restrictions, demands and claims, of any kind and nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect or contingent.
(c) As soon as practicable after the Closing Date, SELLER shall deliver to PURCHASER a certificate or certificates representing the Shares subject to no liens, security interests, pledges, encumbrances, charges, restrictions, demands or claims in any other party whatsoever, except as set forth in the legend on the certificate, which legend shall provide substantially as follows:
THE SHARES (OR OTHER SECURITIES) REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933. THE SHARES MAY NOT BE SOLD OR TRANSFERRED IN THE ABSENCE OF SUCH REGISTRATION OR AN OPINION OF COUNSEL THAT AN EXEMPTION FROM REGISTRATION UNDER SUCH ACT IS AVAILABLE.
(d) PURCHASER acknowledges that the Shares will initially be "restricted securities" (as such term is defined in Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended
("Rule 144"), that the Shares will include the foregoing restrictive legend, and, except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, that the Shares cannot be sold unless registered with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") and qualified by appropriate state securities regulators, or unless PURCHASER obtains written consent from SELLER and otherwise complies with an exemption from such registration and qualification (including, without limitation, compliance with Rule 144).
(e) The Company is obligated to register the Shares in any registration statement filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission after the Closing Date, so that holders of the Shares shall be entitled to sell the same simultaneously with and upon the terms and conditions as the securities sold for the account of the Company are being sold pursuant to any such registration statement, subject to such lock-up provisions as may be proposed by the underwriter of said registration statement (the "Piggyback Registration Right").
(e) PURCHASER acknowledges and agrees that SELLER makes no other representations or warranties with respect to the Shares or the SELLER.
2.2 PURCHASER represents and warrants to SELLER as follows:
(a) PURCHASER has adequate means of providing for current needs and contingencies, has no need for liquidity in the investment, and is able to bear the economic risk of an investment in the Shares offered by SELLER of the size contemplated. PURCHASER represents that PURCHASER is able to bear the economic risk of the investment and at the present time could afford a complete loss of such investment. PURCHASER has had a full opportunity to inspect the books and records of the SELLER and to make any and all inquiries of SELLER officers and directors regarding the SELLER and its business as PURCHASER has deemed appropriate.
(b) PURCHASER is an "Accredited Investor" as defined in Regulation D of the Securities Act of 1933 (the "Act") or PURCHASER, either alone or with PURCHASER's professional advisers who are unaffiliated with, have no equity interest in and are not compensated by SELLER or any affiliate or selling agent of SELLER, directly or indirectly, has sufficient knowledge and experience in financial and business matters that PURCHASER is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of an investment in the Shares offered by SELLER and of making an informed investment decision with respect thereto and has the capacity to protect PURCHASER's own interests in connection with PURCHASER's proposed investment in the Shares.
(c) PURCHASER is acquiring the Shares solely for PURCHASER'S own account as principal, for investment purposes only and not with a view to the resale or distribution thereof, in whole or in part, and no other person or entity has a direct or indirect beneficial interest in such Shares.
(d) PURCHASER will not sell or otherwise transfer the Shares without registration under the Act or an exemption therefrom and fully understands and agrees that PURCHASER must bear the economic risk of PURCHASER'S purchase for an indefinite period of time because, among other reasons, the Shares have not been registered under the Act or under the securities laws of any state and, therefore, cannot be resold, pledged, assigned or otherwise disposed of unless they are subsequently registered under the Act and under the applicable securities laws of such states or unless an exemption from such registration is available.

promise, inducement, statement of intention, representation, warranty, covenant or condition, written or oral, express or implied, whether by statute or otherwise, has been made by any party hereto which is not embodied in this Agreement or the written statements, certificates, or other documents delivered pursuant hereto or in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby, and no party hereto shall be bound by or liable for any alleged understanding, promise, inducement, statement, representation, warranty, covenant or condition not so set forth.

No waiver by any party of any condition, or of the breach of any term, provision, covenant, representation or warranty contained in this Agreement, in any one or more instances, shall be deemed to be or construed as a further or continuing waiver of any such condition or breach or waiver of any other condition or of the breach of any other term, provision, covenant, representation or warranty.
