(x) To the best of the Companys knowledge, the accountants who have audited and reported upon the financial statements filed with the Commission as part of the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package and the Prospectus are an independent registered public accounting firm as required by the 1933 Act. The historical financial statements included in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package or Prospectus or incorporated therein by reference fairly present the consolidated financial position and results of operations of the Company and its subsidiaries at the respective dates and for the respective periods to which they apply. Such historical financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles consistently applied, except as set forth in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package and Prospectus. The unaudited pro forma financial statements, if any, together with the related notes and any supporting schedules
included or incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement, General Disclosure Package and the Prospectus, fairly present the information shown therein and have been compiled on a basis substantially consistent with the audited financial statements of the Company included or incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement, the General Disclosure Package and the Prospectus; the assumptions on which such unaudited pro forma financial statements have been prepared are reasonable; and such unaudited pro forma financial statements have been prepared, and the pro forma adjustments set forth therein have been applied, in accordance with the applicable accounting requirements of the 1933 Act and the 1933 Act Regulations (including, without limitation, Regulations S-X promulgated by the Commission), and such pro forma adjustments have been properly applied to the historical amounts in the compilation of such statements.
(xi) No stop order suspending the effectiveness of the Registration Statement has been issued under the 1933 Act and no proceedings for that purpose have been instituted or are pending, or to the knowledge of the Company, are contemplated by the Commission, and the Company is not the subject of a pending proceeding under Section 8A of the 1933 Act in connection with the offering of the Notes.
(b) Additional Certifications. Any certificate signed by any officer of the Company and delivered to an Agent or to counsel for the Agents in connection with an offering of Notes shall be deemed a representation and warranty by the Company to such Agent as to the matters covered thereby on the date of such certificate.
