This opinion is issued solely for your benefit and use in connection with the matter described herein and is not to be relied upon by any other person, firm or entity or in respect of any other matter.




On the basis of and subject to the foregoing, we are of the opinion that:


4.1.The Company is duly incorporated and validly existing as an exempted company with limited liability under the laws of the Cayman Islands and, based on the Certificate of Good Standing, is in good standing as at the Certificate Date.

4.2.The allotment and issue of the Common Shares and the Warrant Shares have been duly authorised and when allotted, issued and paid for as contemplated in the Registration Statement, the Common Shares and the Warrant Shares will be validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable (which term means when used herein that no further sums are required to be paid by the holders thereof in connection with the issue of such shares).


4.3.Upon the due issuance, execution and delivery of the Warrants by the Company and payment of the consideration therefor as contemplated in the Securities Agreements, the Registration Statement, the Prospectus, any post-effective amendment thereto and any prospectus supplement, such Warrants will constitute legal, valid and binding obligations of the Company in accordance with the terms thereof.


Except as specifically stated herein, we make no comment with respect to any representations and warranties which may be made by or with respect to the Company in any of the documents or instruments cited in this opinion or otherwise with respect to the commercial terms of the transactions, which are the subject of this opinion.


We hereby consent to the filing of this opinion as an exhibit to the Registration Statement and to the references to our firm under the captions “Enforceability of Civil Liabilities” and “Legal Matters” in the Prospectus forming a part of the Registration Statement. In giving this consent, we do not hereby admit that we are within the category of persons whose consent is required under Section 7 of the Securities Act or the Rules and Regulations of the Commission promulgated thereunder.
