Based upon the foregoing, and subject to the assumptions, exceptions, qualifications and limitations set forth herein, we are of the opinion that, when the Shares have been issued and delivered in accordance with the Sales Agreement for the consideration provided for therein, such Shares will be validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable.
