Non-Competition. During the Employment Period, the Executive will not, directly or indirectly, either individually or as owner, partner, agent, employee, consultant or otherwise, except for the account of and on behalf of the Corporation or its affiliates, engage in any activity competitive with the business of the Corporation or its affiliates, nor will he, in competition with the Corporation or its affiliates, solicit or otherwise attempt to establish any business relationships with any person, firm or corporation that was, at any time during the Employment Period, a customer or supplier of the Corporation. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this Section 2.1 shall be construed to prevent the Executive from owning, as an investment, not more than 5% of a class of equity securities issued by any competitor of the Corporation and publicly traded and registered under Section 12 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
Non-Competition. By and in consideration of the Company entering into this Agreement and the payments made and the benefits provided hereunder, and in further consideration of the Executive’s exposure to the Confidential Information of the Company and its affiliates, the Executive agrees that the Executive shall not, during the Executive’s employment with the Company and for eighteen (18) months thereafter (the “Restriction Period”), directly or indirectly, own, manage, operate, join, control, be employed by, or participate in the ownership, management, operation or control of, or be connected in any manner with, including, without limitation, holding any position as a stockholder, director, officer, consultant, independent contractor, employee, partner, or investor in, any Restricted Enterprise (as defined below); provided, that in no event shall ownership of one percent (1%) or less of the outstanding securities of any class of any issuer whose securities are registered under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, standing alone, be prohibited by this Section 4.2, so long as the Executive does not have, or exercise, any rights to manage or operate the business of such issuer other than rights as a stockholder thereof. For purposes of this paragraph, “Restricted Enterprise” shall mean any Person that is actively engaged in any geographic area in any business which is either (i) in competition with the business of the Company or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates or (ii) proposed to be conducted by the Company or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates in their respective business plans as in effect at that time. During the Restriction Period, upon request of the Company, the Executive shall notify the Company of the Executive’s then-current employment status.
Non-Competition. At all times during the Executive's employment with the Company or any affiliate during the Term, and for a period of twelve (12) months following the termination during the Term of employment with the Company or any affiliate for any reason (the "Restricted Period"), the Executive will not engage in Competition (as defined below) with the Company. For purposes of this Agreement, "Competition" shall mean engaging in, or otherwise directly or indirectly being employed by, or acting as a consultant or adviser (paid or unpaid) to, or being a director, officer, employee, principal, agent, stockholder, member, owner or partner of (i) Boeing, Lockheed, Alcatel Space or Astrium, (ii) PanAmSat, SES Astra, Intelsat, New Skies Satellites, (iii) any business similar to the businesses described in clause (i) or (ii) above that competes with the services provided by the Company, (iv) any business that competes with a business that the Company engages in as of the date of the Executive's termination of employment with the Company, as described or otherwise contemplated in the Company's business plan for the year of such termination of employment, or (v) any business that competes with a business that the Company is, to the knowledge of the Executive, preparing to engage in as of the date of the Executive's termination of employment with the Company, and any transferee of or successor to any of the foregoing businesses. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, the Executive may, directly or indirectly, own, solely as an investment, securities of a business enterprise in Competition with the Company or its subsidiaries which are publicly traded on a national or regional stock exchange or on the over-the-counter market if the Executive (i) is not a controlling person of or a member of a group which controls such business enterprise and (ii) does not, directly or indirectly, own five percent (5%) or more of any class of securities of such business enterprise.
Non-Competition. The Employee agrees that during the period of his employment hereunder and for a period of one (1) year thereafter, the Employee will not directly or indirectly: (i) market, sell or perform services such as are offered or conducted by the Company, its affiliates and subsidiaries during the period of his employment, to any customer or client of the Company, or "Prospective Customer" or client of the Company; or (ii) engage, directly or indirectly, whether as principal or as agent, officer, director, employee, consultant, shareholder, or otherwise, alone or in association with any other person, corporation or other entity, in any "Competing Business". For the purpose of this Section 5(a) "Prospective Customer" shall mean any person with whom the Company during the 12 months preceding the date of the Employee's termination of employment hereunder has entered into formal negotiations for a contract and/or has indicated in any written documentation an intent to do business with the Company. For purposes of this Section 5(a), the term "shareholder" shall exclude Employee to the extent the Employee owns less than ten percent (10%) of any public company's outstanding Common Stock. For the further purposes of this Agreement, the term "Competing Business" shall mean all activities and services similar to those conducted or provided by the Company in connection with the Company's CARExpress Health Savings Network. Due to the nature of the markets served and the products and services to be developed and marketed by the Company that are intended to be available on a national basis, the restrictions set forth in this Section 5(a) cannot be limited to a specific geographic area within the United States.
Non-Competition. (a) During his employment by the Company and for a period of one year thereafter, the Employee will not, unless acting with the prior written consent of the Board, directly or indirectly, own, manage, operate, join, control, finance or participate in the ownership, management, operation, control or financing of, or be connected as an officer, director, employee, partner, principal, agent, representative, consultant or otherwise with or use or permit his name to be used in connection with, any business or enterprise engaged in a geographic area in which the Company or any of its affiliates is operating either during his employment by the Company or on the Termination Date, as applicable, presently on the East Coast of the United States or at any port in the Gulf of Mexico (whether or not such business is physically located within those areas) (the "Geographic Area"), in any business that is a customer of, competitive to, a business from which the Company or any of its affiliates derive at least five percent of its respective gross revenues either during his employment by the Company or on the Termination Date, as applicable. It is recognized by the Employee that the business of the Company and its affiliates and the Employee's connection therewith is or will be involved in activity throughout the Geographic Area, and that more limited geographical limitations on this non-competition covenant are therefore not appropriate. The Employee also shall not, directly or indirectly, during such one-year period (a) solicit or divert business from, or attempt to convert any client, account or customer of the Company or any of its affiliates, whether existing at the date hereof or acquired during Employee's employment nor (b) following Employee's employment, solicit or attempt to hire any then employee of the Employer or of any of its affiliates.
Non-Competition. The Executive covenants and agrees that during the Term and for a period of twenty-four (24) months following a termination, pursuant to Article III of this Agreement, of the Executive’s employment for any reason (the “Post-Termination Period”), he shall not, directly or indirectly, own an interest in, operate, join, control, advise, consult to, work for, serve as a director or manager of, have a financial interest, or participate in any corporation, partnership, proprietorship, firm, association, person, or other entity that engages or is planning to be engaged in writing, issuing, underwriting, selling, distributing or re-insuring personal property and casualty insurance products or any other business in which the Company is engaged during the Term (the “Business”). This Covenant applies to each state or territory in which the Company is doing business or is making an active effort to do business during the Term and with respect to the Executive’s covenants regarding the Post-Termination Period at the time the Executive’s employment with the Company is terminated. This Covenant does not prohibit the passive ownership of less than five percent (5%) of the outstanding stock or debt of any public corporation as long as the Executive is not otherwise in violation of this Covenant.
Non-Competition. (a) Executive agrees that during his employment by the Company and during the two (2) year period following the termination of Executive’s employment hereunder (the “Non-Competitive Period”), Executive shall not, directly or indirectly, as owner, partner, joint venturer, stockholder, employee, broker, agent, principal, trustee, corporate officer, director, licensor, or in any capacity whatsoever, engage in, become financially interested in, be employed by, render any consultation or business advice with respect to, accept any competitive business on behalf of, or have any connection with any business which is competitive with products or services of the Company or any subsidiaries and affiliates, in any geographic area in which the Company or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates are then conducting or proposing to conduct business, including, without limitation, the United States of America and its possessions, Canada and Europe; provided, however, that Executive may own any securities of any corporation which is engaged in such business and is publicly owned and traded but in an amount not to exceed at any one time one percent (1%) of any class of stock or securities of such corporation. In addition, Executive shall not, during the Non-Competitive Period, directly or indirectly, request or cause any suppliers or customers with whom the Company or any of its subsidiaries and affiliates has a business relationship to cancel or terminate any such business relationship with the Company or any of its subsidiaries and affiliates or otherwise compromise the Company’s good will or solicit, hire, interfere with or entice from the Company any employee (or former employee) of the Company.
Non-Competition. If the Employee is terminated for good cause the Employee covenants that he will not engage, directly or indirectly, alone or in conjunction with others, as an agent, employee, investor, director, shareholder or partner in any business which provides products, information and/or services to the public which are competitive with those provided by the Employer Group; provided, however, that the ownership by the Employee of 5% or less of the issued and outstanding shares of any class of securities which is traded on a national securities exchange or, in the over the counter market shall not constitute a breach of the provisions of this section. The Employee will not on his own behalf or on behalf of any other business enterprise, directly or indirectly, solicit or induce any creditor, customer, client, supplier, officer, employee or agent of the Employer Group to sever his/her or its relationship with or leave the employ of the Employer Group. The covenants in this Section 12 shall continue in full force and effect throughout the Term hereof and for a one year period subsequent to the termination hereof.
Non-Competition. During the Term and for the Restricted Period following the termination of the Executive’s employment (for any reason), the Executive shall not, whether individually, as a director, manager, member, stockholder, partner, owner, employee, consultant or agent of any business, or in any other capacity, other than on behalf of the Company, its subsidiaries or its affiliates, organize, establish, own, operate, manage, control, engage in, participate in, invest in, permit the Executive’s name to be used by, act as a consultant or advisor to, render services for (alone or in association with any person, firm, corporation or business organization), or otherwise assist any person or entity that engages in or owns, invests in, operates, manages or controls any venture or enterprise which engages or proposes to engage in any business conducted by the Company, its subsidiaries or its affiliates on the Termination Date or within twelve (12) months of the Executive’s termination of employment in the geographic locations where the Company, its subsidiaries or its affiliates engage or, to the Executive’s knowledge, propose to engage in such business (the “Business”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this Agreement shall prevent the Executive from owning for passive investment purposes not intended to circumvent this Agreement, less than five percent (5%) of the publicly traded common equity securities of any company engaged in the Business (so long as the Executive has no power to manage, operate, advise, consult with or control the competing enterprise and no power, alone or in conjunction with other affiliated parties, to select a director, manager, general partner, or similar governing official of the competing enterprise other than in connection with the normal and customary voting powers afforded the Executive in connection with any permissible equity ownership).
