b.Investor Status. At the time Pullar was offered the Securities, he was, and, as of the date hereof is, an “accredited investor” as defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D under the Securities Act. Pullar is familiar with the “bad actor” provisions of Rule 506(d) under the Securities Act is not and has not been subject to or experienced any of the events described in Rule 506(d)(1)(i)-(viii).

 

c.General Solicitation. Pullar is not acquiring the Securities as a result of or subsequent to any advertisement, article, notice or other communication regarding the Securities published in any newspaper, magazine or similar media or broadcast over television or radio or presented at any seminar or any other general solicitation or general advertisement.

 

d.Reliance. Pullar understands and acknowledges that (i) the Securities are being offered and sold to it without registration under the Securities Act in a transaction that is exempt from the registration provisions of the Securities Act, and (ii) the availability of such exemption depends in part on, and UG will rely upon the accuracy and truthfulness of, the foregoing representations, and Pullar hereby consents to such reliance.

 

e.Investigation. Pullar has conducted his own independent investigation and analysis of UG. In entering into this Agreement, Pullar has relied solely upon his own investigation and analysis and the representations and warranties of UG contained herein. Pullar acknowledges that, other than as expressly set forth in this Agreement, neither UG nor any of its respective directors, officers, employees, affiliates, agents or representatives make any representation or warranty, either express or implied, as to the accuracy or completeness of any of the information provided or made available to Pullar or his agents or representatives prior to the execution of this Agreement. Pullar is not relying upon any representation, warranty or agreement with respect to the accuracy or completeness of the information (written or oral) provided to Pullar in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby, or with respect to the appropriateness, suitability or sufficiency of such information for the purpose of enabling Pullar to evaluate such investment, other than the representations, warranties and agreements of UG expressly contained in this Agreement. Pullar acknowledges that he has received all information requested by him to make an investment decision.

 

f.Restricted Securities. Pullar 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 Pullar’s representations as expressed herein. Pullar understands that the Securities are “restricted securities” under applicable U.S. federal and state securities laws and that, pursuant to these laws, Pullar 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. Pullar acknowledges that UG has no obligation to register or qualify the Securities for resale. Pullar further acknowledges that 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 UG which are outside of Pullar’s control, and which UG is under no obligation and may not be able to satisfy.

 

g.Market Stand-Off. In connection with any underwritten public offering by UG of its equity securities pursuant to an effective registration statement filed under the Securities Act, Pullar agrees that he shall not, directly or indirectly, sell, make any short sale of, loan, hypothecate, pledge, offer, grant or sell any option or other contract for the purchase of, purchase any option or other contract for the sale of, or otherwise dispose of or transfer, or agree to engage in any of the foregoing transactions with respect to, any Securities acquired under this Agreement without the prior written consent of UG or its managing underwriter. Such restriction (the “Market Stand-Off”) shall be in effect for such period of time following the date of the final prospectus for the offering as may be requested by UG or such underwriter. In no event, however, shall such period exceed 180 days plus such additional period as may reasonably be requested by UG or such underwriter to accommodate regulatory restrictions on (i) the publication or other distribution of research reports or (ii) analyst recommendations and opinions, including (without limitation) the restrictions set forth in FINRA Rule 2711(f)(4) or NYSE Rule 472(f)(4), or any successor provisions or amendments thereto. The Market Stand-Off shall in any event terminate two years after the date of UG’s initial firm commitment underwritten public offering. In the event of the declaration of a stock dividend, a spin-off, a stock split, an adjustment in conversion ratio, a recapitalization or a similar transaction affecting UG’s outstanding securities without receipt of consideration, any new, substituted or additional securities which are by reason of such transaction distributed with respect to any Securities subject to the Market Stand-Off, or into which such Securities thereby become convertible, shall immediately be subject to the Market Stand-Off. In order to enforce the Market Stand-Off, UG may impose stop-transfer instructions with respect to the Securities acquired under this Agreement until the end of the applicable stand-off period. UG’s underwriters shall be beneficiaries of the agreement set forth in this Section 7.
