We, as your counsel, have examined originals or copies of such documents, corporate records, certificates of public officials and other instruments as we have deemed necessary or advisable for the purpose of rendering this opinion.

Based upon the foregoing, and subject to the additional assumptions and qualifications set forth below, we advise you that, in our opinion (i) the shares of Common Stock that are issued and outstanding as of the date hereof were validly issued and are fully paid and non-assessable and (ii) the remaining shares of Common Stock to be issued have been duly authorized, and when issued, such shares of Common Stock will be validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable.


We are members of the Bar of the State of New York and the foregoing opinion is limited to the laws of the State of New York and the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware.


We hereby consent to the filing of this opinion as an exhibit to the Registration Statement and further consent to the reference to our name under the caption “Legal Matters” in the Prospectus.
