ARTICLE 3

PURCHASE PRICE

 

3.1.  Purchase Price. Provided that Seller delivers between 610-630 Qualified Subscribers as of the Closing Date, in full consideration of the sale and purchase of the Assets as set forth herein, Buyer shall pay to Seller an amount equal to $340,000.00, as further described in this Section. The Purchase Price is calculated by the number of Subscribers as of the Closing Date, which for purposes of this Section is 620, multiplied by the Individual Qualified Subscriber Value (the “Total Qualified Subscriber Value”). To the extent number of Qualified Subscribers as of the Closing Date exceeds 630, the Purchase Price shall be increased by the number of Qualified Subscribers greater than 630 multiplied by the Individual Qualified Subscriber Value. However, to the extent the number of Qualified Subscribers as of the Closing Date is less than 610, the Purchase Price shall be reduced by the number of Qualified Subscribers less than 610 multiplied by the Individual Qualified Subscriber Value. The Total Qualified Subscriber Value shall then be adjusted by the Purchase Price Adjustment as provided in Section 3.3, which final amount shall constitute the “Purchase Price”. The Purchase Price shall be paid in the following manner:

 

8


 

(a)

Buyer shall pay to Seller the amount of One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,00.00) in cash at Closing by wire transfer of immediately available funds (in United States currency) to such account as Seller shall designate in writing not less than two business days prior to the Closing Date (the “Closing Payment”); and

 

(b)

Buyer and Seller shall determine the Purchase Price, including all Purchase Price Adjustments arising under Section 3.2 and all proration adjustments pursuant to this Agreement, to the extent known or then subject to calculation, on the Closing Date, which estimate shall be provided by Seller to Buyer for Buyer’s review and approval no later than two business days prior to the Closing Date. To the extent such Purchase Price Adjustments are not finalized by the Closing Date, any Purchase Price Adjustments shall be factored into the first Post-Closing Payment.

 

(c)

Beginning ninety days after the Closing Date, or if the Closing Date does not fall on the last day of the month, ninety days from the last day of the month in which the Closing Date occurs, the Buyer shall make eight consecutive quarterly payments of Thirty Thousand Dollars ($30,000.00) to the Seller (the “Post-Closing Payments”). For the sake of clarity, the Post Closing Payments are described in Schedule 3.1(c) attached hereto.

3.2.  Right of Off-Set. In the event of a breach by Seller of any of the representations and warranties described in Article 4 that result in compensatory damages to Buyer, Buyer shall be entitled to make a deduction or off-set in that amount to any of the Post Closing Payments, if and when discovered by Buyer. However, prior to making such off-set, Buyer shall provide to Seller with evidence of monetary damages, to be mutually agreed upon in writing prior to any deduction. For the sake of clarity, the Right of Off-Set shall apply to actual, out-of-pocket costs borne by Buyer for items such as equipment replacement, excluding ordinary wear and tear, tax liabilities, or other costs directly related to a breach of Article 4. In the event that Seller and Buyer fail to mutually agree, Buyer and Seller shall submit to binding arbitration through the American Arbitration Association in Worthington, Minnesota for a final determination.

3.3.  Purchase Price Adjustments. The Purchase Price is subject to adjustment as follows (the “Purchase Price Adjustments”):

 

9


 

(a)

To the extent there is a Net Working Capital Deficit as of the Closing Date, the Closing Payment shall be reduced, on a dollar for dollar basis, for every dollar of Net Working Capital Deficit at Closing;

 

(b)

To the extent there is a Net Working Capital Credit as of the Closing Date, the Closing Payment shall be increased, on a dollar for dollar basis, for every dollar of Net Working Capital Credit at Closing; and

 

3.4  Effective Closing Date Allocations. All insurance premiums, taxes, excises, payrolls, rents, power and utility charges, severance pay, all contracts, prepaid items and expenses, and similar items shall be allocated between Seller and Buyer effective as of the Effective Closing Date, such that Seller will pay that portion of the operating costs pertaining to that period of time up to and including the Effective Closing Date, and Buyer will pay that portion of the operating costs from and after the actual Effective Closing Date. Said allocations shall be determined and payment accordingly made to third parties or from one party to the other, as the case may be, on the Effective Closing Date to the extent they are known and agreed to by both parties.

In no event shall Seller’s indemnification obligation under Section 10.2 exceed sixty (60) percent of the sum of the Purchase Price.

 

In case any event shall occur which would otherwise entitle either party to assert a claim for indemnification hereunder, no loss shall be deemed to have been sustained by such party to the extent of (i) any tax savings realized by such party with respect thereto, or (ii) any after-tax proceeds received by such party from any third party, including but not limited to any insurance carrier.

 

10.3  Indemnification by Buyer.  Buyer agrees to indemnify and defend Seller, its officers, directors, shareholders, agents and each of its and their Affiliates (the “Seller Indemnified Parties”) against, and agrees to hold it and them harmless from, any Losses incurred or suffered by any of the Seller Indemnified Parties relating to or arising out of any of the following:

10.4  Notice of Claims; Assumption of Defense. The indemnified party shall give prompt notice to the indemnifying party, in accordance with the terms of Section 12.6, of the assertion of any claim, or the commencement of any suit, action or proceeding in respect of which indemnity may be sought hereunder, specifying with reasonable particularity the basis therefore and giving the indemnifying party such information with respect thereto as the indemnifying party may reasonably request (but the giving of such notice shall not be a condition precedent to indemnification unless the indemnifying party is materially prejudiced by the failure to give such notice). The indemnifying party may, at its own expense, (a) participate in and (b) upon notice to the indemnified party and the indemnifying party’s written agreement that the indemnified party is entitled to indemnification pursuant to Section 10.2 or Section 10.3 for Losses arising out of such claim, suit, action or proceeding, at any time during the course of any such claim, suit, action or proceeding, assume the defense thereof; provided, that (y) the indemnifying Party’s counsel is reasonably satisfactory to the indemnified Party and (z) the indemnifying Party shall thereafter consult with the indemnified Party upon the indemnified Party’s request for such consultation from time to time with respect to such claim, suit, action or proceeding. If the indemnifying Party assumes such defense, the indemnified Party shall have the right (but not the duty) to participate in the defense thereof and to employ counsel, at its own expense, separate from the counsel employed by the indemnifying Party. Whether or not the indemnifying Party chooses to defend or prosecute any such claim, suit, action or proceeding, all of the parties hereto shall cooperate in the defense or prosecution thereof. In the event that the indemnifying Party elects not to assume the defense of any claim, suit, action or proceeding, such election shall not relieve the indemnifying Party of its obligations hereunder.

 

10.5  Settlement or Compromise. No Party shall settle or compromise any claim, suit, action or proceeding without the prior written consent of the other Party, which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. Any settlement or compromise made or caused to be made by the indemnified Party or the indemnifying Party, as the case may be, of any such claim, suit, action or proceeding of the kind referred to in Article 10 shall also be binding upon the indemnifying Party or the indemnified Party, as the case may be, in the same manner as if a final judgment or decree had been entered by a court of competent jurisdiction in the amount of such settlement or compromise.
