At the completion of this transaction, Calarco shall hold 60,000 shares of common stock of ASTRO.
NOW, THEREFORE , in consideration of the mutual promises, covenants and agreements herein, and intending to be legally bound hereby, the parties agree as follows:
1. Exchange of Shares.
(a) Exchange. On the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in this Agreement, at the Closing (i) ASTRO will sell, convey, transfer and assign to Calarco, free and clear of all liens, pledges, encumbrances, changes, restrictions or known claims of any kind, nature or description, and Calarco will purchase and accept from ASTRO, all of the currently issued and outstanding shares of common stock of Custom Pool, in the aggregate (the “Custom Pool Shares”), and (ii) in exchange for the transfer of such securities by the ASTRO, Calarco will sell, convey, transfer and assign to ASTRO, and ASTRO will purchase and accept from Calarco, Thirteen Million, Six Hundred Sixty Eight Thousand, Nine Hundred (13,668,900) shares of common stock of ASTRO, par value $0.001, in the aggregate (the “Calarco Shares”), (such exchange referred to herein as the “Exchange”).

(i) Authorization; No Restrictions, Consents or Approvals.

(iii) Investment Representations.
(A) Calarco understands that the Custom Pool Shares have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) or any other applicable securities laws. ASTRO also understands that the Custom Pool Shares are being offered and issued pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act, under Section 4(2) and/or Regulation D of the Securities Act.
(B) Calarco has received all the information Calarco considers necessary or appropriate for deciding whether to acquire the Custom Pool Shares. Calarco understands the risks involved in an investment in the Custom Pool Shares. Calarco further represents that it has had an opportunity to ask questions and receive answers from ASTRO regarding the terms and conditions of the offering of the Custom Pool Shares and the business, properties, prospects, and financial condition of ASTRO and Custom Pool and to obtain such additional information (to the extent ASTRO or Custom Pool possessed such information or could acquire it without unreasonable effort or expense) necessary to verify the accuracy of any information furnished to Calarco or to which Calarco had access. Calarco further represents that such ASTRO is an “accredited investor” within the meaning of Rule 501(a) of the Securities Act.
(C) Calarco is acquiring the Custom Pool Shares for Calarco’s own account for investment only and not with a view towards their resale or “distribution” (within the meaning of the Securities Act) of any part of the Custom Pool Shares.
(D) Calarco understands that the Custom Pool Shares may not be offered, sold or otherwise transferred except in compliance with the registration requirements of the Securities Act and any other applicable securities laws or pursuant to an exemption therefrom, and in each case in compliance with the conditions set forth in this Agreement. Calarco acknowledges and is aware that the Custom Pool Shares may not be sold pursuant to Rule 144 adopted under the Securities Act unless certain conditions are met and until Calarco has held the Custom Pool Shares for the applicable holding period under Rule 144.
(E) Calarco acknowledges and agrees that each certificate representing the Custom Pool Shares shall bear a legend substantially in the following form:
“THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE “ACT”), OR THE SECURITIES LAWS OF ANY STATE. THE SECURITIES MAY NOT BE TRANSFERRED EXCEPT PURSUANT TO AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT UNDER SUCH ACT AND APPLICABLE STATE SECURITIES LAWS OR PURSUANT TO AN APPLICABLE EXEMPTION FROM THE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS OF SUCH ACT AND SUCH LAWS.”

(ii) Authorization; Restrictions, Consents or Approvals. ASTRO has full power and authority to enter into and perform its obligations under this Agreement. ASTRO has obtained the approvals and consents of its Board of Directors and Shareholders. This Agreement has been duly executed by ASTRO and constitutes the legal, valid, binding and enforceable obligation of ASTRO, enforceable against ASTRO in accordance with its terms. The execution and delivery of this Agreement and the consummation by ASTRO of the transactions contemplated herein do not and will not on the Closing (A) conflict with or violate any of the terms of the articles of incorporation and bylaws of ASTRO or any applicable law relating to ASTRO, (B) conflict with, or result in a breach of any of the terms of, or result in the acceleration of any indebtedness or obligations under, any material agreement, obligation or instrument by which ASTRO is bound or to which any property of ASTRO is subject, or constitute a default thereunder, other than those material agreements, obligations or instruments for which ASTRO has obtained consent for the transactions contemplated under this Agreement, (C) result in the creation or imposition of any lien on any of the assets of ASTRO, (D) constitute an event permitting termination of any material agreement or instrument to which ASTRO is a party or by which any property or asset of ASTRO is bound or affected, pursuant to the terms of such agreement or instrument, other than those material agreements or instruments for which ASTRO has obtained consent for the transactions contemplated under this Agreement, or (E) conflict with, or result in or constitute a default under or breach or violation of or grounds for termination of, any license, permit or other governmental authorization to which ASTRO is a party or by which ASTRO may be bound, or result in the violation by ASTRO of any laws to which ASTRO may be subject, which would materially adversely affect the transactions contemplated herein. No authorization, consent or approval of, notice to, or filing with, any public body or governmental authority or any other person is necessary or required in connection with the execution and delivery by ASTRO of this Agreement or the performance by ASTRO of its obligations hereunder.
(iii) Capitalization of Custom Pool. The Custom Pool Shares constitute all of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock of Custom Pool.

The exchange of the Custom Pool Shares contemplated by this Agreement will not, immediately or with the passage of time; (A) obligate Custom Pool to issue common stock of Custom Pool or other securities to any person, or (B) result in a right of any holder of Custom Pool securities to adjust the exercise, conversion, exchange or reset price of such securities.
(iii) Issuance of Shares. The Custom Pool Shares have been duly authorized and are validly issued and free from all taxes, liens and charges with respect to the issue thereof, and the Custom Pool Shares are fully paid and non-assessable with the holder being entitled to all rights accorded to a holder of Custom Pool’s common stock.
