2.12                        Restrictions on Transfer.


(a)                                 The Common Stock and the Registrable Securities shall not be sold, pledged, or otherwise transferred, and the Company shall not recognize and shall issue stop-transfer instructions to its transfer agent with respect to any such sale, pledge, or transfer, except upon the conditions specified in this Agreement, which conditions are intended to ensure compliance with the provisions of the Securities Act.  A transferring Holder will cause any proposed purchaser, pledgee, or transferee of the Common Stock and the Registrable Securities held by such Holder to agree to take and hold such securities subject to the provisions and upon the conditions specified in this Agreement.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company shall not require any transferee who receives shares pursuant to an effective registration statement or, following the IPO, pursuant to SEC Rule 144 to be bound by the terms of this Agreement.
