During the period commencing on the Closing Date and ending on the date that is one (1) year after the Closing Date, the Shareholders shall, jointly and severally, indemnify and hold harmless Purchaser, its subsidiaries and their respective officers, directors and shareholders (each, an “Indemnified Party”), from and against any and all demands, claims, actions or causes of action, judgments, assessments, losses, liabilities, damages or penalties and reasonable attorneys’ fees and related disbursements (collectively, “Claims”) suffered by such Indemnified Party resulting from or arising out of any (i) inaccuracy in or breach of any of the representations or warranties made by the Holding Company, the Company, or the Shareholders at the time they were made, and, except for representations and warranties that speak as of a specific date or time (which need only be true and correct as of such date or time), on and as of the Closing Date, (ii) breach or nonfulfillment of any covenants or agreements made by the Holding Company, the Company, or the Shareholders, or (iii) misrepresentation made by the Holding Company, the Company, or the Shareholders, in each case as made herein or in the Schedules or Exhibits annexed hereto or in any closing certificate, schedule or any ancillary certificates or other documents or instruments furnished by the Holding Company, the Company, or the Shareholders pursuant hereto or in connection with the Transaction.

(a)       Upon obtaining Knowledge of any Claim by a third party that has given rise to, or is expected to give rise to, a claim for indemnification hereunder, Purchaser shall give written notice (“Notice of Claim”) of such claim or demand to the Shareholders, specifying in reasonable detail such information as the Indemnified Party may have with respect to such indemnification claim (including copies of any summons, complaint or other pleading that may have been served on it and any written claim, demand, invoice, billing or other document evidencing or asserting the same). Subject to the limitations set forth in Section 7.2(b) hereof, no failure or delay by Purchaser in the performance of the foregoing shall reduce or otherwise affect the obligation of the Shareholders to indemnify and hold the Indemnified Party harmless, except to the extent that such failure or delay shall have actually adversely affected the Shareholders’ ability to defend against, settle or satisfy any Claims for which the Indemnified Party is entitled to indemnification hereunder.

 

(b)      If the claim or demand set forth in the Notice of Claim given by Purchaser pursuant to Section 7.2(a) hereof is a claim or demand asserted by a third party, the Shareholders shall have fifteen (15) days after the date on which the Notice of Claim is delivered to notify Purchaser in writing of its election to defend such third party claim or demand on behalf of the Indemnified Party. If the Shareholders elect to defend such third party claim or demand, Purchaser shall make available to the Holding Company and Shareholders and its agents and representatives all records and other materials that are reasonably required in the defense of such third party claim or demand and shall otherwise cooperate with, and assist the Shareholders in the defense of, such third party claim or demand, and so long as the Shareholders are defending such third party claim in good faith, the Indemnified Party shall not pay, settle or compromise such third party claim or demand. If the Shareholders elect to defend such third party claim or demand, the Indemnified Party shall have the right to participate in the defense of such third party claim or demand at the Shareholders’ expense. In the event, however, that such Indemnified Party reasonably determines that representation by counsel to the Shareholders of both the Shareholders and such Indemnified Party could reasonably be expected to present counsel with a conflict of interest, then the Indemnified Party may employ separate counsel to represent or defend it in any such action or proceeding and the Shareholders will pay the fees and expenses of such counsel. If the Shareholders do not elect to defend such third party claim or demand or does not defend such third party claim or demand in good faith, the Indemnified Party shall have the right, in addition to any other right or remedy it may have hereunder, at the Shareholders’ expense, to defend such third party claim or demand; provided, however, that (i) such Indemnified Party shall not have any obligation to participate in the defense of or defend any such third party claim or demand; (ii) such Indemnified Party’s defense of or its participation in the defense of any such third party claim or demand shall not in any way diminish or lessen the obligations of the Shareholders under the agreements of indemnification set forth in this Article VII; and (iii) such Indemnified Party may not settle any claim without the consent of the Shareholders, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.

 

30
 

 

(c)       The Holding Company and the Shareholders, and Purchaser and the other Indemnified Parties, if any, shall cooperate fully in all aspects of any investigation, defense, pre-trial activities, trial, compromise, settlement or discharge of any claim in respect of which indemnity is sought pursuant to this Article VII, including, but not limited to, by providing the other party with reasonable access to employees and officers (including as witnesses) and other information.

 

(d)      Except for third party claims being defended in good faith, the Shareholders shall satisfy their obligations under this Article VII in respect of a valid claim for indemnification hereunder that is not contested by the Shareholders in good faith within thirty (30) days after the date on which Notice of Claim is delivered.

 

7.3          Indemnification Procedures for Non-Third Party Claims.

 

In the event any Indemnified Party should have an indemnification claim against the Shareholders under this Agreement that does not involve a claim by a third party, the Indemnified Party shall promptly deliver notice of such claim to the Shareholders in writing and in reasonable detail. The failure by any Indemnified Party to so notify the Shareholders shall not relieve the Shareholders from any liability that it may have to such Indemnified Party, except to the extent that Shareholders have been actually prejudiced by such failure. If the Shareholders do not notify the Indemnified Party within fifteen (15) Business Days following its receipt of such notice that the Shareholders dispute such claim, such claim specified by the Shareholders in such notice shall be conclusively deemed a liability of the Shareholders under this Article VII and the Shareholders shall pay the amount of such liability to the Indemnified Party on demand, or in the case of any notice in which the amount of the claim is estimated, on such later date when the amount of such claim is finally determined. If the Shareholders dispute their liability with respect to such claim in a timely manner, the Shareholders and the Indemnified Party shall proceed in good faith to negotiate a resolution of such dispute and, if not resolved through negotiations, such dispute shall be submitted to arbitration pursuant to Section 9.12.

 

7.4          Limitations on Indemnification.

 

No claim for indemnification under this Article VII shall be asserted by an Indemnified Party, and no liability for such indemnify shall be enforced against the Shareholders, to the extent the Indemnified Party has theretofore received indemnification or otherwise been compensated for such Claim. In the event that an Indemnified Party shall later collect any such amounts recovered under insurance policies with respect to any Claim for which it has previously received payments under this Article VII from the Shareholders, such Indemnified Party shall promptly repay to the Shareholders such amount recovered; provided, however, that in no event shall the amount repaid to the Shareholders exceed the amount paid by the Shareholders under this Article VII.

 

31
 

 

7.5          Holdback of Shares.

 

(a)       Three Hundred Seventy Five Million (375,000,000) of the Common Stock Consideration (the “Share Holdback”) shall be deposited with the Purchaser.

(b)      Upon resolution of any Claim in favor of an Indemnified Party, a portion of the Share Holdback equal in value to the value of the resolved Claim shall be released by the Committee to the applicable Indemnified Party within ten (10) Business Days of such resolution. The value of the shares of Purchaser Common Stock included in the Share Holdback shall be equal to eighty percent (80%) of the twenty (20) day Weighted Average Price of such Common Stock.
