Amended and Restated

SHARE PURCHASE AGREEMENT

     This SHARE PURCHASE AGREEMENT, effective as of June 15, 2009, is by and among Cogenco International, Inc., a Colorado corporation (“Cogenco” or the “Company”) and Bernd J. Hamacher-Schwieren (“Purchaser’), and fully amends and replaces that certain share purchase agreement entered into by the parties dated April 28, 2009 (extended by amended dated May 31, 2009). By entering into this Agreement, the Purchaser agrees to purchase and Cogenco agrees to sell 540,000 shares of Cogenco common stock (the “Purchased Shares”) as described below and subject to adjustment as provided herein.

RECITALS

     A.      Cogenco is currently a development stage company, has only limited cash resources, and is currently not actively involved in business operations.

     B.      Purchaser is an investor with experience investing in, and/or working with, development stage companies such as the Company, has been provided all information about the Company he or it, and his or its, advisors have sought (including being afforded the opportunity to ask and receive answers from the Company and its management about the Company’s current and/or contemplated business activities), and is able to bear the risk of losing all of his or its investments in the Purchased Shares.

     C.      Cogenco and Purchaser desire to enter into this agreement pursuant to which Purchaser will purchase from Cogenco, and Cogenco will sell to Purchaser, the restricted common stock described herein.

     D.      Purchaser understands that, should Cogenco common stock be registered under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Purchaser, as the holder of greater than 5% of the outstanding shares, will be obligated to file certain reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (including reports on Schedule 13D or 13G, as applicable, and reports pursuant to Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

     NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants and agreements set forth herein and for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and adequacy of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows:

ARTICLE I

PURCHASE AND SALE OF COMMON SHARES

     1.1      Purchase and Sale of Common Shares. Subject to the terms and conditions herein set forth, Cogenco agrees to issue and sell to Purchaser, and Purchaser agrees to subscribe for and take up, at the Closing, the Purchased Shares.

     1.2      Purchase Price. Purchaser shall pay the purchase price of $5.00 (U.S.) per share of Common Stock for a total purchase price of

1


$2,700,000. The Purchaser shall pay the purchase price to Cogenco in accordance with wiring instructions provided to Purchaser. The total purchase price shall be paid as follows: (i) a minimum of $250,000 shall be paid on or before June 30, 2009; and (ii) the unpaid balance of the total purchase price shall be paid on or before July 31, 2009.

     1.3      Use of Proceeds. Cogenco intends to use approximately $70,000 received from the Purchaser as working capital for itself, pay $135,000 to Genesis Capital Management Limited (“GCM”) as a finder’s fee pursuant to an agreement between Cogenco and GCM, and lend the balance of the proceeds from the sale of the Purchased Shares (expected to be approximately $2,495,000 to GCM, which to the Knowledge of Cogenco, will use the funds: (i) to repay approximately $185,900 of indebtedness owed by GCM to Cogenco, and the balance for general working capital purposes for itself and certain of its subsidiary or related entities including (without limitation, the entities described in the attached promissory note). The parties acknowledge that under United States law, Cogenco will have to maintain appropriate controls over the expenditure of the funds by itself and GCM to ensure compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the USA Patriot Act, and other United States laws.

     1.4      Related Party Transaction. The Purchaser understands that the Company’s largest shareholder, Genesis Investment Funds Limited, is controlled by GCM, and this loan can be considered to be a related party transaction. Cogenco cannot offer any assurance that any funds lent to GCM will be sufficient to permit it, or any subsidiary or related entity of GCM, will be sufficient for GCM to carry on its planned business operations. Further, Cogenco cannot offer any assurance that GCA will be able to fully and timely repay any funds Cogenco may lend to GCA. Cogenco plans to loan the funds to GCM pursuant to the promissory note that is attached as an exhibit to this subscription agreement but, in general, Cogenco will have little ability to control GCM’s activities or operations. GCM has provided Cogenco and the Purchaser with copies of GCM’s most recent financial statements which reflect its financial condition and results of operations through its most current fiscal period. Furthermore, the Purchaser acknowledges that the terms of the loan were not negotiated at arms’-length. By purchasing Cogenco common stock, the Purchaser represents that he has discussed the investment and the use of funds with GCM as well as Cogenco, and further acknowledges and approves of the use of proceeds of the Purchaser’s investment.

1.5      Closing.

     (a)      Subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth in Articles IV and V, the subscription for and issuance of the Purchased Shares shall take place at Cogenco’s principal offices (or as Cogenco may otherwise designate), or at such other times and places as the parties shall agree. The parties agree that there may be one or more closings under this agreement (each a “Closing”).

     (b)      Delivery. Cogenco will prepare a stock certificate in the name of Purchaser for the total number of shares purchased and shall deliver the certificate to Purchaser on the Closing against payment of the Purchase Price, by certified check or wire transfer payable to the Company or its designated agent.

     3.5      Purchase for Own Account. The Purchased Shares to be acquired by Purchaser pursuant to this Agreement are being or will be acquired for his or its own account and with no intention of distributing or reselling such Purchased Shares or any part thereof in any transaction that would be in violation of the securities laws of the United States of America or any state, without prejudice, however, to the rights of Purchaser at all times to sell or otherwise dispose of all or any part of such Purchased Shares under an effective registration statement under the Securities Act, or under an exemption from such registration available under the Securities Act, and subject, nevertheless, to the disposition of Purchaser’s property being at all times within its control. If Purchaser should in the future decide to dispose of any of such Purchased Shares, Purchaser understands and agrees that he or it may do so only in compliance with the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws, as then in effect. Purchaser agrees to the imprinting, so long as required by law, of a legend on certificates representing all of his or its Purchased Shares to the following effect:

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.

     3.6      Restricted Securities. Purchaser understands that the Purchased Shares will not be registered at the time of their issuance under the Securities Act for the reason that the sale provided for in this Agreement is exempt pursuant to Section 4(2) and/or Regulation S of the Securities Act and that the reliance of Cogenco on such exemption is predicated in part on Purchaser’s representations set forth herein.

8


     3.7      Broker’s, Finder’s or Similar Fees.

     3.9      Accredited and Non-U.S. Investor Status. Purchaser represents and warrants that Purchaser is an “Accredited Investor” as defined in Section 2(a)(15) of the Securities Act and Rules 215 and 501(a) promulgated under the Securities Act. Purchaser further represents that he or it is a “non-U.S. person” as that term is defined in Regulation S adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission, and further represents that by reason of Purchaser’ business or financial experience, or through the business or financial experience of his or its advisor(s), Purchaser has the capacity to protect his or its own interest in connection with the transaction contemplated herein.

     3.10      Acknowledgement of Risk. Purchaser represents and warrants that Purchaser understands that an investment in Cogenco constitutes one of significant risk (including those risks described in Cogenco’s Disclosure Documents), and Purchaser risks losing his or its entire investment. Cogenco cannot offer any assurance that Purchaser will be able to recover any portion of his or its investment.

the public market or in a private transaction and whether it occurs in the United States or elsewhere, and Purchaser will not encourage any other person to do so.

     3.13      Good Funds. All funds used for the purchase of the Purchased Shares originated directly from a bank or brokerage account in the name of the Purchaser located within the United States of America or another Compliant Jurisdiction as defined in by the Financial Action Task Force on Money Laundering (found at http://www.oecd.org/fatf/) or in any other manner that may violate the Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism (USA PATRIOT ACT) Act of 2001, Pub.
