Furthermore, the fact that a transaction is subject to an administrative or statutory exemption is not dispositive of whether the transaction is in fact a prohibited transaction; and (3) The availability of these exemptions are subject to the express condition that the material facts and representations contained in the applications accurately describe all material terms of the transaction which is the subject of the exemption.
