2. ECD OBLIGATIONS

ECD agrees to:

2.1 enable the Investor to participate in the Programme, provided that the Investor:

2.1.1 is a professional client in accordance with Section 1 of Annex II to MiFID; and

2.1.2 may only access certain sections of Data Rooms with the relevant Company's prior consent (i.e. where the Company has designated the Investor as an Approved Investor);

2.2 collect orders and other necessary information from Approved Investors that wish to invest in Companies and transmit them to the relevant Company; and

2.3 notify Investors of each Investment Opportunity that matches the investment preferences that they notify to ECD through the Site, by sending the Investors a copy of the blind profile of the relevant Company.

3. INVESTOR OBLIGATIONS

3.1 The Investor represents and warrants that it is a professional client and that it has given appropriate information and documentation that ECD might require for its onboarding.

3.2 The Investor shall co-operate with ECD in all matters relating to a Capital Raising and shall promptly provide ECD with all information reasonably requested. The Investor shall ensure that all such information is correct and accurate and is not misleading in any way.

3.3 The Investor must notify ECD as soon as it becomes aware of any material change to the information provided to ECD under the Agreement.

3.4 Where an Investor wishes to access a Data Room to participate in a Capital Raising, it must provide ECD (who will then provide to the Company) all information requested by the Company in order for it to determine whether or not the Investor may be an Approved Investor for the relevant Capital Raising.

3.4 Approved Investors shall be entitled to place an order to subscribe for Investments through the Programme for a period ending on the date specified by the relevant Company which may be updated from time to time.

3.5.2 put in place payment arrangements to ensure that the Company is paid the price for the amount of Investments that the Company agrees to issue or facilitate the transfer of, to the Approved Investor in advance of the Settlement Date (it being acknowledged that the payment of that price to the relevant Company's settlement agent shall discharge in full the obligation of the Approved Investor to pay the Company).

3.6 The relevant Company shall be responsible for issuing Investments that have been purchased by an Approved Investor to that Approved Investor.

3.7 The Investor shall notify ECD of any Investment that it makes if the relevant Company was introduced to the Investor through the Programme within the last 12 months in respect of debt Investments and within 18 months in respect of equity Investments.

3.8 The Investor shall provide ECD with such information as ECD may request from time to time, in order to enable ECD to satisfy its legal and regulatory obligations.

3.9 The Investor acknowledges that:

3.9.1 ancillary charges or fees may be payable to third parties in connection with it making an investment in a Company, and acknowledges that such charges or fees are not associated with these terms.

3.9.2 as a consequence of becoming a shareholder of a Company it shall be subject to the provisions of the Company's constitution, bond instrument or investment agreement (as applicable);
