Cornerstone shall take all steps necessary to enable the LLC to avail itself of the prospectus delivery mechanism set forth in Rule 153 under the Securities Act or any successor thereto.
Cornerstone shall furnish to the LLC, at Cornerstone's expense, such number of copies of the final Prospectus and of each post-effective amendment or supplement thereto, as may reasonably be required in order to facilitate the disposition of the Registered Shares in conformity with the requirements of the Securities Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, but only while Cornerstone is required under the provisions hereof to cause the Registration Statement to remain effective.

Cornerstone.

Each Cornerstone Subsidiary which is a partnership, joint venture or limited liability company (i) has been since its formation and continues to be treated for federal income tax purposes as a partnership and not as a corporation or an association taxable as a corporation and (ii) has not since the later of its formation or the acquisition by Cornerstone of a direct or indirect interest therein, owned any assets (including, without limitation, securities) that would cause Cornerstone to violate Section 856(c)(4) of the Code.

Reg. ss.1.337(d)-5T or (y) which is subject to a consent filed pursuant to Section 341(f) of the Code and the regulations thereunder.
