During Executive's employment by USA and for a period of two years after the termination of such employment for any reason, whether by USA or by Executive, with or without Cause or Good Reason, Executive will not, without the prior written consent of USA, directly or indirectly, on Executive's own behalf or in the service or on behalf of others, solicit or attempt to divert or appropriate to a Competing Business, any customer or actual prospect of USA with whom Executive dealt on behalf of USA or on behalf of USA's affiliates at any time during the 12-month period immediately preceding the termination of employment; provided, however, if the termination occurs on or after the second anniversary of the date of the Change of Control, the two year customer non-solicit period set forth herein shall reduce to a one year customer non-solicit period. 14. Agreement Not to Solicit Employees. During Executive's employment by USA and for a period of two years after the termination of such employment for any reason, whether by USA or by Executive, with or without Cause or Good Reason, Executive will not, without the prior consent of USA, directly or indirectly, on Executive's own behalf or in the service or on behalf of others, solicit, divert or recruit any employee of USA to leave such employment, whether such employment is by written contract or at will; provided, however, if the 11 termination occurs on or after the second anniversary of the date of the Change of Control, the two year employee non-solicit period set forth herein shall reduce to a one year employee non-solicit period. 15. Consideration; Remedies. (a) Injunctive Relief. Executive acknowledges and agrees that, by virtue of the duties and responsibilities attendant to his employment by USA and the special knowledge of USA's affairs, business, clients, and operations that he has and will have as a consequence of such employment, irreparable loss and damage will be suffered by USA if Executive should breach or violate any of the covenants and agreements contained in Sections 7 through 13. Executive further acknowledges and agrees that each of such covenants is reasonably necessary to protect and preserve the business of USA. Executive, therefore, agrees and consents that, in addition to any other remedies available to it, USA shall be entitled to an injunction to prevent a breach or contemplated breach by the Executive of any of the covenants or agreements contained in such Sections. (b) Forfeiture. Executive acknowledges that USA intends to enforce the terms of the restrictive covenants of this Agreement contained in Sections 12, 13, and 14. In the event Executive breaches the provisions of Sections 12, 13, or 14, Executive shall immediately forfeit his right to receive (or shall refund to USA or its successor to the extent Executive has been previously paid) the value of the portion of the Restrictive Covenant Consideration allocable to the portion of the two year time period ($770.54 per day of violation, capped at amounts actually received by Executive) during which Executive is in violation of any of such Sections 12, 13, or 14. Executive acknowledges that the actual damages for any such breach are costly and difficult to estimate and the amount required to be refunded or forfeited by this Section 15(b) is a reasonable estimation of such damages. The parties agree that such forfeited or refunded amount is intended as liquidated damages and not as a penalty. The parties also agree that the remedies set forth in this Section 15(b) are in addition to other remedies, including equitable remedies. (c) No Defense; Remedies. The existence of any claim, demand, action or cause of action of Executive against USA or its affiliates, whether predicated upon this Agreement or otherwise, shall not constitute a defense to the enforcement by USA of any of the covenants contained herein. The rights of USA under this Agreement are in addition to, and not in lieu of, all other rights USA may have at law or in equity to protect its confidential information, trade secrets and other proprietary interests. 16. Severability; Construction. Each covenant of this Agreement shall be deemed and shall be construed as a separate and independent covenant, and should any part or provision of any such covenants be declared invalid by any court of competent jurisdiction, such invalidity shall in no way render invalid or unenforceable any other part or provision thereof or any other separate covenant of Executive not declared invalid. Whenever there is a conflict between an applicable law of a jurisdiction which governs the subject matter of this Agreement and any provision of this Agreement, the affected portions of this Agreement shall be deemed revised, as to such jurisdiction only, in a manner which (i) eliminates any invalid, illegal or completely unenforceable provision, and (ii) as to any provision which is held to be excessively broad as to time duration, scope, activity or subject, limits or reduces such provision so as to be enforceable to the extent compatible with the applicable law. 17. Notices. Any notice required or permitted to be given to one party by the other party hereto pursuant to this Agreement shall be in writing and shall 12 be personally delivered (including delivery by overnight or express courier), or sent by United States Mail, certified or registered, return receipt requested, first class postage and charges prepaid, in envelopes addressed to the parties as set forth below their signatures or at such other addresses as shall be designated in writing by either party to the other party in accordance with this Section. Notices delivered in person shall be effective on the date of delivery. Notices sent by United States Mail shall be effective on the third day following deposit. 18. Amendment. No amendment or modification of this Agreement shall be valid or binding upon either party unless made in writing. 19. Waiver. The waiver by one party of a breach of any provision of this Agreement by the other party shall not operate or be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach of the same or any other provision by the other party. 20. Employee-At-Will. Nothing in this Agreement affects the fact that Executive's employment with USA is terminable at will by either party, subject to any notice requirements set forth in the Offer Letter, as hereby amended.. 21. Attorneys' Fees. If any action at law or in equity is necessary to enforce the terms of this Agreement, the prevailing party shall be entitled to reasonable attorneys' fees, costs, and expenses in addition to any other relief to which such prevailing party may be entitled. 22. Gender. All references included herein to the male gender shall be construed to include the female gender, if and as appropriate. 23. Assignment; Benefit; Payment to Estate. This Agreement may not be assigned by Executive and shall be binding upon Executive's devisees, heirs, legatees, beneficiaries, executors, administrators, or other legal representatives. This Agreement may be assigned by USA, and the right, remedies, and obligations of USA shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon its successors and assigns. In the event of Executive's death, any payment that Executive has earned and to which Executive is entitled under this Agreement, but which has not been paid at the time of Executive's death, shall be paid to Executive's estate. 24. Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original and all of which shall constitute one agreement. 25. Costs Associated with IRS Audit. In the event there is an Internal Revenue Service audit of Executive's tax returns related to the tax treatment of Executive's compensation under this Agreement, USA shall reimburse Executive for one-half (1/2) of the professional fees and expenses (accounting, legal, appraisal or other consultant) incurred by Executive contesting, disputing, complying with or otherwise responding to such audit, up to a maximum of $10,000. 26. Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the matters contained herein and, subject to the following sentence, supersedes and terminates all previous agreements with respect to the matters contained herein. Except as specifically set forth in Section 4 hereof, the terms of this Agreement (a) are in addition to, and not in lieu of, the benefits to which Executive is entitled under the Offer Letter and (b) shall not be deemed to supersede, amend, or terminate any other parts of the Offer Letter. For the avoidance of doubt, the parties acknowledge and agree that except as expressly set forth herein, no other aspects of Executive's Offer Letter are, or shall be deemed for any purposes modified. The Employee Agreement shall be superseded and terminated by the provisions of this Agreement.
