The final determination of the Accounting Firm will be made in strict accordance with the terms of this Agreement (including the definitions of Closing Working Capital, Closing Company Cash, Selling Expenses and Closing Indebtedness). The Accounting Firm will determine the items in dispute solely based on written submissions made by the Seller and the Purchaser (and their respective Representatives) consistent with the terms hereof, and not by independent review.

The fees and disbursements of the Accounting Firm shall be borne by the Party (i.e., the Seller, on the one hand, or the Purchaser, on the other hand) that assigned amounts to items in dispute that were, on a net basis, furthest in amount from the amount finally determined by the Accounting Firm (or equally in the event the Parties’ assigned amounts were, on a net basis, equally far from the amount finally determined by the Accounting Firm).
(d)Final Adjustment Statement. The Preliminary Adjustment Statement shall become the “Final Adjustment Statement” and as such shall become final, binding and conclusive on the Parties, absent manifest error, in the case of clause (iii) below, for all purposes of this Agreement and upon which a judgment may be entered by a court of competent jurisdiction, upon the earliest to occur of the following:
(i)the mutual acceptance by the Seller and the Purchaser of the Preliminary Adjustment Statement, with such changes thereto, if any, as may be proposed by the Seller and consented to by the Purchaser;
(ii)the expiration of thirty (30) days after the Seller’s receipt of the Preliminary Adjustment Statement, without timely written objection by the Seller in accordance with Section 2.5(b); or
(iii)the delivery to the Seller and the Purchaser by the Accounting Firm of the final report of its determination of all disputed matters submitted to the Accounting Firm pursuant to Section 2.5(c).
(e)Adjustment of Purchase Price. If the Purchase Price, as finally determined in accordance with this Section 2.5, is greater than the Estimated Purchase Price, then the Purchaser shall, or shall cause the Company to, pay to the Seller an amount equal to such excess by wire transfer of immediately





available funds to an account designated in writing by the Seller within three (3) Business Days after the date on which the Purchase Price is finally determined. If the Purchase Price, as finally determined in accordance with this Section 2.5, is less than the Estimated Purchase Price, then the Seller shall pay the Purchaser an amount equal to such shortfall by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account designated in writing by the Purchaser within three (3) Business Days after the date on which the Purchase Price is finally determined.

From time to time, as and when requested by any Party to this Agreement, the other Parties will execute and deliver, or cause to be executed and delivered, all such documents and instruments and will take, or cause to be taken, all such further or other actions, as the requesting Party may reasonably deem necessary or desirable to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, in any such case, at the requesting Party’s sole cost and expense.
6.2 Directors’ and Officers’ Insurance.
(a)For a period of six (6) years from and after the Closing, the Purchaser agrees to cause the Company to indemnify (including advancement of expenses) and hold harmless all past and present officers and directors of the Company to the same extent such persons are indemnified by the Company as of the date of this Agreement pursuant to the Company’s Organizational Documents, any applicable employment agreements or indemnification agreements or under applicable Laws for acts or omissions which occurred at or prior to the Closing. The provisions with respect to indemnification and exculpation contained in the Company’s Organizational Documents shall not be amended, repealed or otherwise modified for a period of six (6) years in any manner that would materially adversely affect the rights of the past and present officers and directors of the Company when compared to such provisions in the Company’s Organizational Documents in effect as of the date hereof.

(d)The provisions of this Section 6.2 are intended for the benefit of, and shall be enforceable by, all past and present officers and directors of the Company and his or her heirs and representatives.

(j)On or before the Closing Date, the Seller shall cause all restrictions with respect to restricted stock awards held by Continuing Employees to lapse and shall take such other actions as may be necessary to prevent the forfeiture of such awards in connection with the termination of the Continuing Employees employment with the Seller and its Subsidiaries upon such Continuing Employee delivering to the Seller a customary release for such action.
(k)The Seller shall coordinate with the senior management of the Company and use commercially reasonably efforts to obtain retention agreements from the individuals identified to the Seller by the Purchaser prior to the Closing.
(l)The Seller shall take action to cause the 2005 Churchill Downs Incorporated Deferred Compensation Plan (as Amended as of December 1, 2008) (the “DCP”) to be terminated with respect to all participants who are Company employees effective as of the Closing Date (the “DCP Participants”) and shall pay out all amounts accrued by the DCP Participants under the DCP as of such date. In addition, the Seller shall take action to terminate the arrangements set forth on Schedule 6.7(l) effective as of the Closing Date and shall pay out all amounts due thereunder as of such date.

During the Pre-Closing Period, the Purchaser or its Affiliates may, in the Ordinary Course of their business and following reasonable advance notice to the Company, make inquiries of Persons having business relationships with any of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries (including suppliers, licensors, distributors and customers) with whom the Purchaser or any of its Affiliates has a separate business relationship, as long as such inquiries regard matters unrelated to and separate from the Company and its Subsidiaries and the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.
(b)Notwithstanding anything in this Section 6.8 to the contrary,
i.(A) in no event shall the Seller, the Company, any of its Subsidiaries, or their respective Affiliates be obligated to provide any (1) access or information in violation of any applicable Law, (2) information with respect to bids, the identity of any bidder, confidentiality or non-disclosure agreements, letters of intent, expressions of interest or other proposals received prior to the date hereof in connection with transactions comparable to those contemplated by this Agreement or any information or analysis relating to any such communications, (3) information the disclosure of which would jeopardize any applicable privilege (including the attorney-client privilege) available to the Seller, the Company, any of its Subsidiaries, or their respective Affiliates relating to such information or (4) information the disclosure of which would cause the Seller, the Company, any of its Subsidiaries, or any of their respective Affiliates to breach a confidentiality obligation to which it is bound; provided, that, in the case of clauses (A)(1), (A)(3) and (A)(4), the Seller, the Company, any of its Subsidiaries, or any of their respective Affiliates, as applicable, shall use reasonable best efforts to obtain any required consents and take such other reasonable action (such as the entry into a joint defense agreement or other arrangement to avoid loss of attorney-client privilege) to permit such access;





and (B) such investigation or access shall not unreasonably interfere with any of the businesses, personnel or operations of the Seller, the Company, any of its Subsidiaries or any of their respective Affiliates;
ii.the auditors and accountants of the Seller, the Company, any of its Subsidiaries, or any of their respective Affiliates shall not be obligated to make any work papers available to any Person pursuant to this Section 6.8 except in accordance with such auditors’ and accountants’ normal disclosure procedures and then only after such Person has signed a customary agreement relating to such access to work papers in form and substance reasonably acceptable to such auditors or accountants; and
iii.before the Closing, without the prior written consent of the Seller, which the Seller may withhold for any reason, neither the Purchaser nor any of its Representatives shall contact any employees of, suppliers to, or customers of, the Seller, the Company, any of its Subsidiaries, or any of their respective Affiliates in connection with or with respect to this Agreement or any transaction contemplated hereby, or to otherwise discuss the business or operations of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries; provided that nothing in this Section 6.8(b)(iii) is intended to limit the Purchaser’s rights under Section 6.8(a).
(c)If so requested by the Seller, the Purchaser shall enter into a customary joint defense agreement or common interest agreement with the Seller, the Company and any of its Subsidiaries or their respective Affiliates with respect to any information provided to the Purchaser, or to which the Purchaser gains access, pursuant to this Section 6.8.
(d)In addition to the provisions of Section 6.9, from and after the Closing Date, in connection with the preparation of Tax Returns, financial statements, audits, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission or regulatory reporting obligations, support for Legal Proceedings other than those between the Seller or any of its Affiliates and the Purchaser or any of its Affiliates (including the Company and its Subsidiaries) and compliance with applicable Law, upon reasonable prior notice, and except that neither the Seller nor the Purchaser shall be required to provide any access or information to the extent that restricting such access or information is necessary, in such Party’s reasonable opinion, to (A) ensure compliance with any applicable Law, (B) preserve any applicable privilege (including the attorney-client privilege), (C) protect the Business (in the case of the Purchaser) or its business (in the case of the Seller) from competitive harm, or (D) comply with any contractual confidentiality obligations, the Seller and the Purchaser shall, and shall cause their respective Affiliates (including in the case of the Purchaser, the Company and its Subsidiaries), and their respective Representatives to (i) afford the Representatives of the other Party and its Affiliates reasonable access, during normal business hours, to the properties, key employees, books and records, Tax Returns and work papers of such Party and its Subsidiaries (including in the case of the Purchaser, the Company and its Subsidiaries), (ii) furnish to the Representatives of such Party and its Affiliates such additional financial and other information regarding the Seller or the Company and the Company’s Subsidiaries, as applicable, and, in each case, their respective Affiliates as such Party or its Representatives may from time to time reasonably request and (iii) make available to Representatives of such Party or its Affiliates its and its Affiliates’ employees whose assistance, expertise, testimony, notes or recollections or presence may be necessary to assist such Party or its Affiliates in connection with its inquiries for any of the purposes referred to above, including the presence of such persons as witnesses in hearings or trials for such purposes; provided, however, that such investigation or access shall be conducted under the supervision of the applicable Party’s or its Affiliates’ personnel and shall not interfere with the business or operations of such Party or any of its Affiliates (including, in the case of the Purchaser, the Company and its Subsidiaries); and provided, further, that the auditors and accountants of such Party or its Affiliates (including, in the case of the Purchaser, the Company and its Subsidiaries) shall not be obligated to make any work papers available to any Person except in accordance with such auditors’ and accountants’ normal disclosure procedures and then only after such Person has signed a customary agreement relating to such access to work papers in form and substance reasonably acceptable to such auditors or accountants. If so requested by the Purchaser, on





the one hand, or the Seller or one of its Affiliates, on the other hand, the Seller or one of its Affiliates, or the Purchaser or one of its Affiliates, as the case may be, shall enter into a customary joint defense agreement or common interest agreement with the Purchaser and its Affiliates, or the Seller and its Affiliates, as applicable, with respect to any information to be provided to the Seller pursuant to this Section 6.8(d).
6.9 Preservation of Books and Records. The Seller and its Affiliates shall have the right to retain copies of books and records of the Company relating to periods ending on or prior to the Closing Date to the extent necessary to comply with applicable Law. Subject to the last sentence of this Section 6.9, in order to comply with its obligations under Section 6.8(d), the Purchaser agrees that it shall preserve and keep, or cause to be preserved and kept, all original books and records in respect of the Company in the possession of the Purchaser or its Affiliates reasonably expected to be needed in connection with the preparation of Tax Returns, financial statements, audits, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission or regulatory reporting obligations, support for Legal Proceedings other than those between the Seller or any of its Affiliates and the Purchaser or any of its Affiliates (including the Company and its Subsidiaries) and compliance with applicable Law, for the longer of (i) any applicable statute of limitations and (ii) a period of six (6) years from the Closing Date. During such six (6) year or longer period, Representatives of the Seller and its Affiliates shall, upon reasonable notice and in connection with the preparation of Tax Returns, financial statements, audits, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission or regulatory reporting obligations, support for Legal Proceedings other than those between the Seller or any of its Affiliates and the Purchaser or any of its Affiliates (including the Company and its Subsidiaries) and compliance with applicable Law, have access during normal business hours to examine, inspect and copy such books and records; provided, however, that the Seller shall not have such access to such books and records to the extent that restricting such access or information is necessary, in the Purchaser’s reasonable opinion, to (A) ensure compliance with any applicable Law, (B) preserve any applicable privilege (including the attorney-client privilege), or (C) comply with any contractual confidentiality obligations; provided, that the Purchaser shall use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain necessary consents from third parties to allow the Purchaser to provide the Seller with such access or information that would be restricted by this clause (C). The Seller or its Affiliates, as applicable, shall return any original books and records it obtained pursuant to Section 6.8(d) or this Section 6.9 to the Purchaser or such Affiliate as soon as such books and records are no longer needed in connection with the applicable circumstances described in the immediately preceding sentence. After such six (6) year or longer period, before the Purchaser or any Affiliate shall intentionally dispose of any of such books and records, the Purchaser shall give at least sixty (60) days’ prior written notice of such intention to dispose to the Seller, and the Seller or any of its Affiliates shall be given an opportunity, at their cost and expense, to remove and retain all or any part of such books and records as it may elect. If so requested by the Purchaser, any of the Seller or its applicable Affiliate to which the Purchaser or one of its Affiliates is providing information pursuant to this Section 6.9 shall enter into a customary joint defense agreement with the Purchaser or such Affiliate with respect to any information to be provided to the Seller or its Affiliate pursuant to this Section 6.9.
6.10 Insurance. For events arising from the operation of the business of the Company or its Subsidiaries on or after the Closing Date, the Company and its Subsidiaries shall cease to be insured by the Seller’s or its Subsidiaries’ insurance policies or by any of their self-insured programs, and neither the Purchaser nor its Subsidiaries shall have any access, right, title or interest to or in any such insurance policies (including to all claims and rights to make claims and all rights to proceeds). The Seller or its Subsidiaries may amend any insurance policies to the extent necessary to effectuate the preceding sentence, with any such amendments to be effective as of the Closing. For a period of four (4) years after the Closing, with respect to any occurrence-based insurance policy under which the Company or any of its Subsidiaries is an insured, the Purchaser, the Company or its Subsidiaries, as applicable, may make claims under such policies (to the extent of coverage and subject to any policy limits) with respect to events taking place prior to the Closing





in respect of the Business and the operations and Liabilities of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries under any such past or current insurance policy; provided, however, that by making any such claims, the Purchaser agrees to reimburse the Seller for any increased costs incurred by the Seller directly as a result of such claims, including any retroactive or prospective premium adjustments as such amounts are determined in accordance with the policies; and provided, further, that the Purchaser shall exclusively bear (and the Seller shall have no obligation to repay or reimburse the Purchaser for) the amount of any “deductibles” associated with claims under such policies and shall be liable for all uninsured or uncovered amounts of such claims.  For the avoidance of doubt, the Seller shall retain all rights to control its insurance policies, including the right to exhaust, settle, release, commute, buy-back or otherwise resolve disputes with respect to any of its insurance policies, notwithstanding whether any such policies apply to any Liabilities of the Purchaser under this Section 6.10 or otherwise. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this Section 6.10 is intended to modify or limit any of the Seller’s obligations, or any of the Purchaser’s rights, under Section 6.14 or Article IX.
6.11 Financing.
(a)The Purchaser shall use its reasonable best efforts to do, or cause to be done, all things reasonably necessary or advisable to obtain the Debt Financing as soon as reasonably practicable and, in any event, not later than the Closing Date, on substantially the terms and conditions (including, to the extent applicable, the “flex” provisions), taken as a whole, described in the Debt Commitment Letter and the Fee Letter, including using reasonable best efforts to (i) enter into definitive agreements with respect to the Debt Financing on substantially the terms and conditions (as such terms may be modified or adjusted (x) in accordance with the terms, and within the limits, of the flex provisions contained in any Fee Letter or (y) in accordance with the restrictions on amendments and modifications set forth in the immediately succeeding sentence) contemplated by the Debt Commitment Letter and the related Fee Letter (the “Definitive Debt Financing Agreements”) and (ii) satisfy in all material respects on a timely basis all conditions and covenants (including with respect to the payment of any ticking, commitment, engagement or placement fees) applicable to and within the control of the Purchaser or the Affiliated Borrowers in the Debt Commitment Letter, the Fee Letter and the Definitive Debt Financing Agreements. The Purchaser shall not agree to any amendments or modifications to, or grant any waivers of, any condition or other provision under the Debt Commitment Letter, the Fee Letter or the Definitive Debt Financing Agreements without the prior written consent of the Seller (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed) if such amendment, modification or waiver would (A) reduce the aggregate amount (other than immaterial reductions) of the Debt Financing (including by changing the amount of fees to be paid or original issue discount of the Debt Financing or similar fee) to an amount that (when combined with any equity financing and cash on hand) is less than the amount needed to satisfy the Financing Uses, (B) impose new or additional conditions, or otherwise amend, modify or expand any conditions, to the receipt of the Debt Financing or (C) otherwise amend, modify or waive any other provision of the Debt Commitment Letter, the Fee Letter or the Definitive Debt Financing Agreements, in each case of the foregoing clauses (B) and (C), only if in a manner that would (x) materially delay or prevent the funding of the Debt Financing (or satisfaction of the conditions to obtaining the Debt Financing) on the Closing Date, (y) materially adversely impact the ability of the Purchaser to enforce its rights against the other parties to the Debt Commitment Letter or the Definitive Debt Financing Agreements or (z) materially adversely impact the ability of the Purchaser to timely consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (it being understood that any amendment of the Debt Commitment Letter, the Fee Letter or the Definitive Debt Financing Agreements for the purpose of (I) adding lenders, lead arrangers, bookrunners, syndication agents or similar entities who had not executed the Debt Commitment Letter or the Fee Letter as of the date hereof or (II) extending the termination date set forth in the Debt Commitment Letter shall be permitted without the prior written consent of the Seller). Upon any amendment, modification or waiver of the Debt Commitment Letter or the Definitive Debt Financing Agreements in accordance with this Section 6.11(a), the terms “Debt Commitment Letter”, “Fee Letter” and





“Definitive Debt Financing Agreements” shall include and mean such documents as amended, modified or waived in accordance with this Section 6.11(a) and the term “Debt Financing”, shall include and mean the financing contemplated by the Debt Commitment Letter as amended, modified or waived in accordance with this Section 6.11(a).
(b)The Purchaser shall not, without the prior written consent of the Seller, prior to or in connection with the Closing, permit or arrange any debt financing to which the Company or any of its Subsidiaries will be a party prior to the Closing or by which any of their respective assets shall be subject or bound prior to the Closing, other than the Debt Financing. If any portion of the Debt Financing becomes unavailable on the terms and conditions (including any “flex” provisions) contemplated in the Debt Commitment Letter and the related Fee Letter, the Purchaser shall use its reasonable best efforts to, as promptly as practicable following the occurrence of such event but no later than the Closing Date required by Section 2.2, arrange and obtain from the same or alternative sources of debt financing an amount, when combined with any equity financing and cash on hand, sufficient to satisfy the Financing Uses, on terms and conditions (including any “flex” provisions) that are not materially less favorable to the Purchaser in the aggregate as those contained in the Debt Commitment Letter and the related Fee Letter and which shall not include any conditions precedent or contingencies to the funding of such alternative debt financing on the Closing Date that are materially more onerous than those set forth in the Debt Commitment Letter and the related Fee Letter in effect on the date hereof. The new debt commitment letter and fee letter entered into in connection with such alternative debt financing are referred to, respectively, as a “New Debt Commitment Letter” and a “New Fee Letter.” The Purchaser shall provide the Company with (x) a copy of the New Debt Commitment Letter and related New Fee Letter (with the fee amounts, pricing caps and the economic terms of the “flex” provisions contained therein redacted and other customary redactions that do not materially adversely affect the conditionality of such alternative debt financing) for any such alternative debt financing for its review prior to the execution thereof and (y) fully executed copies thereof (which may be redacted as aforesaid) as promptly as practicable following the execution thereof. In the event the Purchaser enters into any such New Debt Commitment Letter or New Fee Letter, (i) any reference in this Agreement to the “Debt Financing” shall mean the debt financing contemplated by the “Debt Commitment Letter” as such term is modified pursuant to the immediately succeeding clause (ii), (ii) any reference in this Agreement to the “Debt Commitment Letter” (and any definition incorporating the term “Debt Commitment Letter,” including the definition of Definitive Debt Financing Agreements) shall be deemed to include the Debt Commitment Letter to the extent not superseded by a New Debt Commitment Letter at the time in question and any New Debt Commitment Letter to the extent then in effect and (iii) any reference in this Agreement to the “Fee Letter” (and any definition incorporating the term “Fee Letter,” including the definition of Definitive Debt Financing Agreements) shall be deemed to include the Fee Letter to the extent not superseded by a New Fee Letter at the time in question and any New Fee Letter to the extent then in effect.
(c)The Purchaser shall, and shall cause its Representatives to, keep the Seller informed as promptly as practicable in reasonable detail of the status of its efforts to arrange the Debt Financing. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Purchaser shall (i) furnish the Seller complete, correct and executed copies of any amendments to the Debt Commitment Letter and the Fee Letter (with the fee amounts, pricing caps and the economic terms of the “flex” provisions contained therein redacted and other customary redactions that do not materially adversely affect the conditionality of the Debt Financing) promptly upon their execution and (ii) give the Seller prompt written notice (A) of any default or breach (or any event that, with or without notice, lapse of time or both, would give rise to any default or breach) by any party under any of the Debt Commitment Letter, the Fee Letter or the Definitive Debt Financing Agreements of which the Purchaser becomes aware, (B) of any termination of any of the Debt Commitment Letter or the Fee Letter, (C) of the receipt of any written notice or other written communication from any Debt Financing Source with respect to any (1) material default or breach, or any actual or threatened termination or repudiation,





of any of the Debt Commitment Letter, the Fee Letters, any Definitive Debt Financing Agreement or any provision of the Debt Commitment Letter, the Fee Letter or the Definitive Debt Financing Agreements, in each case by any party thereto, or (2) any material dispute or disagreement relating to the Financing between or among the Purchaser and/or the Affiliated Borrowers, on the one hand, and the Debt Financing Sources, on the other hand, and (D) if for any reason the Purchaser believes in good faith that it or the Affiliated Borrowers will not be able to obtain all or any portion of the Debt Financing needed to satisfy the Financing Uses on the terms, in the manner or from the sources contemplated by the Debt Commitment Letter, the Fee Letter or the Definitive Debt Financing Agreements, as the case may be; provided, that the Purchaser shall not be under any obligation to disclose any information that (x) is subject to attorney client or similar privilege to the extent such privilege is asserted in good faith or (y) otherwise would violate or contravene any Law or any obligation of confidentiality (it being understood that in the case of this clause (y), the Purchaser shall use reasonable best efforts to notify the Seller of such restriction and communicate any such information in a way that does not cause such a violation).
(d)The Seller shall cause the Company and its Subsidiaries, and instruct the management of the Business (having appropriate seniority and expertise), to, in each case, use their reasonable best efforts to provide to the Purchaser, its Affiliates, their respective Representatives and the Debt Financing Sources all customary cooperation reasonably requested by the Purchaser, its Affiliates, their respective Representatives or the Debt Financing Sources in connection with the Debt Financing and any syndication thereof, including reasonable best efforts to (i) participate by phone in a reasonable number of meetings, presentations, sessions with rating agencies and due diligence sessions, (ii) provide reasonable and customary assistance with the preparation of materials (including projections) for rating agency presentations, bank information memoranda and other similar documents for the Debt Financing and provide reasonable cooperation with the due diligence efforts of any sources of financing to the extent reasonable and customary (including executing customary authorization letters authorizing the distribution of information about the Company and its Subsidiaries to prospective sources of financing, which letters shall include, to the extent accurate and applicable, in the case of the public-side version of any such materials and documents, a representation that such public-side version does not include material non-public information about the Company or its Subsidiaries), (iii) to the extent timely requested, (A) obtain documents reasonably requested by the Purchaser, its Affiliates, their respective Representatives or the Debt Financing Sources relating to (x) the release and termination of liens and guarantees under the Seller’s senior secured credit facility and/or indentures, as applicable, and (y) the repayment of the existing indebtedness of the Company and its Subsidiaries and the release and termination of related liens and guarantees, including customary payoff letters and (B) provide, at least five (5) Business Days prior to the Closing Date, all documentation and other information required by bank regulatory authorities under applicable “know-your-customer” and anti-money laundering rules and regulations, including the USA PATRIOT Act, relating to any of the Company and its Subsidiaries, in each case as reasonably requested by the Purchaser, its Affiliates, their respective Representatives or any of the Debt Financing Sources at least seven (7) Business Days prior to the aforementioned date of delivery, (iv) furnish the Purchaser, its Affiliates, their respective Representatives and the Debt Financing Sources with financial and other pertinent information, including historical financial statements (and assisting in the preparation of pro forma financial statements), regarding the Company and its Subsidiaries reasonably necessary to consummate the Debt Financing (which, in the case of historical financial statements, shall be limited to the Required Financial Information and Additional Required Financial Information, as applicable), (v) execute and deliver as of the Closing any pledge and security documents, guarantees, hedging agreements and other definitive financing documents and other certificates or documents (other than any solvency certificate) with respect to the Company and its Subsidiaries (and any assets and property of the Company and its Subsidiaries) as may be reasonably requested by the Purchaser, its Affiliates, their respective Representatives or the Debt Financing Sources and otherwise cooperate to facilitate the guaranteeing of obligations and the pledging of, granting of security interests in and obtaining perfection of





any liens on, collateral in connection with the Debt Financing, (vi) use reasonable best efforts to (A) permit the prospective sources of financing to evaluate the current assets and liabilities, cash management and accounting systems, and policies and procedures relating thereto of the Company and its Subsidiaries, for purposes of establishing collateral arrangements, and (B) to the extent required by the Definitive Debt Financing Agreements, establish bank and other accounts and blocked account agreements and lockbox arrangements in connection with the foregoing, and (vii) take all corporate actions, subject to the occurrence of the Closing, reasonably necessary or advisable to permit the consummation of the Debt Financing and to permit the proceeds thereof to be available as of the Closing; provided, however, that (1) nothing herein shall require such cooperation to the extent it would interfere unreasonably with the ongoing business or operations of the Seller or the Company and its Subsidiaries, (2) neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries shall be required to commit to take any action that is not contingent upon the Closing or that would be effective prior to the Closing, (3) neither the Seller’s board of directors nor any of the Company and its Subsidiaries’ boards of directors (or equivalent bodies) shall be required to approve or adopt any Debt Financing or agreements related thereto prior to the Closing, (4) the Company and its Subsidiaries shall not be required to execute any agreements or certificates in connection with any Debt Financing prior to the Closing that is not conditioned on the occurrence of the Closing (other than customary authorization letters described in Section 6.11(d)(ii) above), (5) the Purchaser shall be solely responsible for the contents (other than historical information of the Company and its Subsidiaries, which shall be limited to the Required Financial Information and the Additional Required Financial Information, as applicable) and determination of pro forma financial information, including pro forma cost savings, synergies, capitalization or other pro forma adjustments desired to be incorporated into any pro forma financial information or (6) neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries shall be required to take any action that will conflict with or violate any applicable Organizational Documents of the Company or such Subsidiary (as the case may be) or any applicable Law or result in any officer or director of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries incurring any personal liability with respect to any matters relating to the Debt Financing. Neither the Company nor its Subsidiaries shall be required to, prior to the Closing or with respect to any event or circumstances occurring or existing prior to the Closing, pay any commitment fee or other similar fee or make any other payment (other than for reasonable out-of-pocket costs or expenses that are reimbursed by the Purchaser as provided below in this Section 6.11(d)) or incur any other liability or provide or agree to provide any indemnity in connection with the Debt Financing or any of the foregoing. The Purchaser shall, promptly upon request by the Seller and receipt of an invoice therefor from the Seller, reimburse the Seller for all documented and reasonable out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred by the Seller, the Company or any of their respective Subsidiaries in connection with providing the cooperation required by this Section 6.11(d). The Purchaser shall indemnify and hold harmless the Seller, the Company, and their respective Affiliates and Representatives from and against any and all liabilities, losses, damages, claims, costs, expenses, interest, awards, judgments and penalties suffered or incurred by them in connection with any action taken by them in accordance with this Section 6.11(d) (other than (i) with respect to any information provided by any of them in connection with this Section 6.11(d) or (ii) to the extent arising from the fraud, gross negligence, bad faith, willful misconduct or material breach of this Agreement on the part of the Seller, the Company or any of their respective Subsidiaries, Affiliates or Representatives). The Seller and the Company hereby consent to the use of each of the logos and other trademarks of the Company and its Subsidiaries in connection with the Debt Financing, provided that such logos and other trademarks are used in a manner that is not intended nor reasonably likely to harm or disparage the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or the reputation or goodwill of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries.
(e)The Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that neither the obtaining of the Debt Financing or any alternative financing is a condition to the Closing, and reaffirms its obligation to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby irrespective and independently of the availability of the Debt Financing or any alternative financing.





(f)For the avoidance of doubt, the foregoing obligations contained in this Section 6.11 shall terminate upon the occurrence of the Closing.
6.12 Affiliate Transactions. Prior to the Closing, the Seller and the Company, as applicable, shall pay in full all amounts owing through the Closing by or to the Seller, any Affiliate of the Seller, any director or officer of the Seller or any Subsidiary of the Seller, or any Associate of any such director or officer (other than the Company and its Subsidiaries) on the one hand, to or by, as applicable, the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, on the other hand, and the Company and the Seller, as applicable, shall terminate or shall cause to be terminated (with no payment obligations surviving such termination) each Contract between the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, on the one hand, and the Seller, any Subsidiary of the Seller, any director or officer of the Seller or any Subsidiary of the Seller, or any Associate of any such director or officer (other than the Company and its Subsidiaries), on the other hand, except for those Contracts listed in Section 6.12 of the Disclosure Schedules. For purposes of this Agreement, “Associate” means, with respect to any person, (a) the spouse of such person, or any relative of such person who has the same home as such person, (b) any corporation or other business organization of which such person is an officer or is the beneficial owner, directly or indirectly, of ten percent (10%) or more of any class of equity securities, and (c) any trust or estate in which such person has a substantial beneficial interest or as to which such person serves as a trustee or in a similar capacity.
6.13 Office Lease. Prior to the Closing Date, the Seller shall effect the Intended Occupant Assignment (as defined in the Office Lease) and shall notify the Purchaser that the Intended Occupant Assignment has taken place prior to the earlier of (a) two (2) Business Days after its effectiveness and (b) the Closing Date. As soon as reasonably practicable following the date of this Agreement, the Seller shall use its reasonable best efforts to obtain from the landlord under the Office Lease (the “Landlord”) the release of the Seller from any and all obligations and liabilities under the Office Lease effective as of the Closing (the “Office Lease Release”). The Seller hereby acknowledges and agrees that obtaining the Office Lease Release is not a condition to Closing. If requested by the Landlord, the Purchaser agrees to (i) (A) execute a guaranty or (B) cause a Successor Guarantor to execute a guaranty (a “Substitute Guaranty”) in order to secure such Office Lease Release and (ii) provide all documentation as may be reasonably required for the Seller to obtain such Office Lease Release. The Seller shall, and shall cause its Representatives to, keep the Purchaser informed as promptly as practicable in reasonable detail of the status of its efforts to obtain the Office Lease Release and concurrently provide to the Purchaser copies of all documents provided to or from the Landlord related to obtaining the Office Lease Release. The Purchaser shall use its reasonable best efforts to provide the Seller all cooperation reasonably requested by the Seller that is necessary in connection with the Office Lease Release; provided that, other than with respect to providing the Substitute Guaranty, none of the Purchaser or any its Affiliates shall be required to pay money to the Landlord or any other third party, commence any Legal Proceeding or offer or grant any accommodation (financial or otherwise) to the Landlord or any other third party in connection with the Seller’s efforts to obtain the Office Lease Release. Each Party shall use commercially reasonable efforts to give the other Parties advance notice of any in-person meeting or conference with the Landlord relating to the Office Lease Release or the transactions contemplated hereby and shall permit Representatives of the other Parties to be present at those meetings or conferences. From and after the Closing, the Purchaser shall be solely responsible for seeking to obtain the Office Lease Release, and shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Seller and its Affiliates against any and all Damages suffered by the Seller or any of its Affiliates arising from or related to post-Closing actions or occupancy under such Office Lease (unless such Damage relates to a matter for which the Purchaser is entitled to be indemnified under this Agreement).
6.14 Specified Litigation.





(a)From and after the Closing, (x) each Party shall notify the other Party promptly (and in any event within three (3) Business Days) following the receipt by such Party or any of its Affiliates of any notice, communication, correspondence or documentation from any third party (including a Governmental Authority) in relation to the matter described in Schedule 6.14(A) (the “Primary Specified Litigation”), and (y) the Seller shall notify the Purchaser promptly (and in any event within three (3) Business Days) following the receipt by the Seller or any of its Affiliates of any notice, communication, correspondence or documentation from any third party (including a Governmental Authority) in relation to the matters described in Schedule 6.14(B) (the “Additional Specified Litigations” and, collectively with the Primary Specified Litigation, the “Specified Litigations”). Unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Parties, and subject to this Section 6.14, from and after the Closing, the Purchaser shall be responsible for and have control over the defense, settlement or any other action in connection with the Specified Litigations; provided, however, that the Purchaser’s responsibility and control over any defense or settlement of any claims relating to the Specified Litigations shall in no way derogate its rights to indemnification for the Primary Specified Litigation as specifically provided for under this Section 6.14. In connection with the Specified Litigations, from and after the Closing (i) (A) each Party shall, and shall cause their respective Affiliates to, promptly provide the other Party with copies of all correspondence with or from third parties (including any Governmental Authority) relating to the Primary Specified Litigation and, as reasonably requested, with reasonable access during normal business hours to all files or other documents in its or any of its Affiliates’ possession relating to the Primary Specified Litigation (in each case, to the extent not previously provided to the other Party and to the extent such access would not unreasonably interfere with the conduct of its business or unreasonably disrupt its normal operations), and (B) the Seller shall, and shall cause its Affiliates to, promptly provide the Purchaser with copies of all correspondence with or from third parties (including any Governmental Authority) relating to the Additional Specified Litigations and, as reasonably requested, with reasonable access during normal business hours to all files or other documents in its or any of its Affiliates’ possession relating to such Additional Specified Litigation (in each case, to the extent not previously provided to the other Party, to the extent such access would not unreasonably interfere with the conduct of its business or unreasonably disrupt its normal operations and to the extent such correspondence, files or other documents are not in the possession of the Company); (ii) (A) each Party shall, to the extent consistent with applicable Law, notify the other Party promptly following such Party’s or any of its Affiliates’ receipt of any and all subpoenas, Orders and material requests and communications of any third party (including any Governmental Authority) relating to the Primary Specified Litigation, and (B) Seller shall, to the extent consistent with applicable Law, notify the Purchaser promptly following the Seller’s or any of its Affiliates’ receipt of any and all subpoenas, Orders and material requests and communications of any third party (including any Governmental Authority) relating to any Additional Specified Litigation; (iii) the Seller shall and shall cause its Affiliates to reasonably cooperate with the Purchaser and any of its Representatives (including its outside legal counsel) in the defense of the Specified Litigations, including using reasonable best efforts to facilitate the Purchaser engaging the same counsel engaged by the Seller or any of its Affiliates after the Closing with respect thereto, including by providing all waivers and consents required for Purchaser to engage such counsel; (iv) subject to execution of a joint defense agreement between the Seller and the Purchaser in form and substance reasonably acceptable to them, (A) solely with respect to the Primary Specified Litigation, the Seller shall be entitled to attend and participate on any substantive calls with outside counsel to the extent practicable, provide input to the Purchaser, directly or through its own legal counsel, on strategic decisions relating to the Primary Specified Litigation (including whether to appeal any adverse rulings), which the Purchaser will consider in good faith; provided that, the Purchaser shall make all final decisions relating to the Primary Specified Litigation in its sole discretion; and (B) the Purchaser shall keep the Seller reasonably informed of the status of the Primary Specified Litigation and shall notify the Seller promptly (and in any event within three (3) Business Days) following any material developments in relation thereto; (v) the Purchaser shall be entitled to change legal counsel for any of the Specified Litigations; provided, that, with respect to the Primary Specified Litigation, the Purchaser agrees to retain the outside





legal counsel engaged by the Seller for such matter (the “Incumbent Counsel”) as of the date of this Agreement through the completion of the currently pending appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit; provided further that the Purchaser may, at its sole cost and expense, retain outside legal counsel of its choosing to consult with the Incumbent Counsel with respect to such appeal and the Seller shall direct the Incumbent Counsel to consult in good faith with the Purchaser’s counsel; (vi) with respect to the Additional Specified Litigations, and from and after the completion of the substitution contemplated by Section 6.14(b) with respect to the Primary Specified Litigation, the Purchaser’s counsel shall be the sole counsel of record for such Specified Litigations; and (vii) subject to Section 6.14(f), each of the Seller and its Affiliates and the Purchaser and its Affiliates shall bear its own fees, costs and expenses incurred in connection with the Specified Litigations. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, the Purchaser and the Seller each agree that the legal counsel of the other Party may maintain a copy of all information, materials and documents that may be required to respond to any requests from any Governmental Authority relating to the Specified Litigations. The rights and obligations of the Parties under this Section 6.14(a) shall be in addition to and not limited by Section 6.8 or Section 6.9.
(b)From and after the date of this Agreement through the Closing, the Seller shall use reasonable best efforts to substitute the Company for the Seller as the defendant in the Primary Specified Litigation and the Purchaser shall reasonably cooperate with the Seller in connection therewith. From and after the Closing, each of the Purchaser and the Seller shall use their respective reasonable best efforts to substitute the Company for the Seller as the defendant in the Primary Specified Litigation and shall reasonably cooperate with each other in connection therewith. In the event that substitution is not permitted in the Primary Specified Litigation, and notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 6.14, the Purchaser shall nonetheless be responsible for and have control over the defense, settlement or any other action in connection with the Primary Specified Litigation and Seller will take reasonable steps to ensure Purchaser shall be able to exercise such control.
(c)Prior to the Closing Date, the Seller may settle any Additional Specified Litigations, which settlement shall require the Purchaser’s prior written consent; provided that the Seller shall be entitled to reimbursement from the Purchaser for the amount of any monetary settlement and reasonable and documented out-of-pocket costs and expenses paid by the Seller in the negotiation and documentation of such settlement). The Purchaser shall be responsible for any and all costs, expenses (including attorneys’ fees and legal costs), damages or settlements with respect to the Additional Specified Litigations, in each case, incurred following the Closing. The Seller shall not settle the Primary Specified Litigation without the Purchaser’s prior written consent. From and after the Closing, the Purchaser shall not settle the Primary Specified Litigation without the Seller’s prior written consent (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed).
(d)In the event of an adverse ruling in the Primary Specified Litigation, whether rendered prior to or after the date of this Agreement or prior to or after the Closing, the Seller shall pay any bond required in connection with any appeal of such adverse ruling. Nothing in this Section 6.14(d) shall limit the Purchaser’s rights set forth in Section 6.14(a) (including the Purchaser’s right to be responsible for and have control over the defense, settlement or any other action relating to the Primary Specified Litigation).
(e)As of the Closing Date, all written communications with counsel, including written communications (prior to or following the Closing) between counsel for the Seller or any of its Affiliates, on the one hand, and the Seller or any of its Affiliates, on the other hand, that relate in any way to the Specified Litigations (collectively, the “Specified Communications”) shall be shared with the Purchaser pursuant to the Common Interest Agreement by and among the Purchaser, the Company and the Seller, dated as of September 29, 2017. As of the Closing Date, as to all Specified Communications, the attorney-client privilege and the expectation of client confidence may be asserted by the Seller, the Purchaser and their respective





Affiliates, and the Seller, the Purchaser and their respective Affiliates may use or rely on any of the Specified Communications in any action relating to the Specified Litigations; provided, however, that neither the Seller nor any of its Affiliates may waive, or seek to obtain a waiver of, the attorney-client privilege with respect to such Specified Communications.
(f)From and after the Closing, the Seller shall indemnify and hold harmless the Purchaser Indemnified Parties from and against, and compensate and reimburse the Purchaser Indemnified Parties for, any and all losses, damages, costs, fines, judgments, awards, penalties, interest, obligations, payments, settlements, expenses and Liabilities, including actual damages, punitive damages, consequential damages, special damages and diminution in value of the Company and its Subsidiaries as of the date hereof or the Business in connection with the Primary Specified Litigation, together with all reasonable and documented costs and expenses (including reasonable and documented attorneys’ and other legal fees and out-of-pocket expenses), incurred or suffered by the Purchaser Indemnified Parties arising from the Primary Specified Litigation; provided that for purposes of computing such damages there shall be deducted an amount equal to the amount of any insurance proceeds, indemnification payments, contribution payments, reimbursements, and Tax benefits actually received by any Purchaser Indemnified Party or any of its Affiliates in connection with such damages or the circumstances giving rise thereto; provided, however, that any such deduction shall be net of any reasonable, out of pocket costs or expenses incurred in obtaining such recovery.
(g)With respect to the Primary Specified Litigation, the terms and provisions of this Section 6.14 shall supersede the indemnification procedures set forth in Section 9.4. With respect to the Additional Specified Litigations, the indemnification procedures set forth in Section 9.4 shall apply unless otherwise set forth in this Section 6.14. For the avoidance of doubt, the Additional Specified Litigations, to the extent disclosed on Schedule 3.11, are not subject to indemnification by Seller under Article IX or otherwise.
(h)The Seller shall be entitled to receive any attorneys’ fees awarded by the court of the Eastern District of Texas, and actually collected by the Purchaser or any of its Affiliates, in the event such trial court grants the pending motion for attorneys’ fees in the matter listed in item 1 of Schedule 6.14(B) and the Purchaser shall pay to the Seller any such attorneys’ fees promptly following receipt thereof; provided that (i) the Purchaser shall be entitled to retain any reasonable and documented, out-of-pocket costs or expenses (including reasonable and documented attorneys’ fees) incurred by it in connection with pursuing or collecting such award for attorneys’ fees; (ii) the Purchaser shall upon the Seller’s request use commercially reasonable efforts to collect such award of attorneys’ fees (provided that the Purchaser shall be entitled to reimbursement from the Seller for any reasonable and documented, out-of-pocket costs or expenses (including reasonable and documented attorneys’ fees) incurred by it in connection with pursuing or collecting such award for attorneys’ fees); and (iii) the Purchaser shall not settle this matter collectively with another matter in a way that interferes with or jeopardizes the collection of such attorneys’ fees without the Seller’s prior written consent (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed, except based on the Seller receiving reasonable and appropriate value in consideration for such attorneys’ fees).
6.15 Notifications. During the Pre-Closing Period, the Seller shall promptly notify the Purchaser in writing of the Seller, the Company or any of their respective Subsidiaries obtaining Knowledge of: (i) any event, condition, fact or circumstance that would cause or constitute a breach of or an inaccuracy in any material respect in any representation or warranty made by the Seller or the Company in this Agreement if such representation or warranty had been made as of the time of the occurrence, existence or discovery of such event, condition, fact or circumstance, such that the condition in Section 8.1(a)(i) would not be satisfied; (ii) any breach of any covenant or obligation of the Seller or the Company such that the condition in Section 8.1(a)(ii) would not be satisfied; and (iii) any event, condition, fact or circumstance that would make the timely satisfaction of any of the conditions set forth in Article VII impossible or unlikely. No notification





under this Section 6.15 shall be required with respect to matters consented to in writing by the Purchaser pursuant to the last paragraph of Section 6.3 or the actual taking of actions contemplated by Schedule 6.3.
6.16 Credit Agreement. The Seller shall, and shall cause each of its Affiliates and each of its and their respective Representatives to, obtain and deliver to the Purchaser substantially simultaneously with the Closing all documents and instruments necessary or appropriate to effect and evidence (i) the termination on the Closing Date of all security interests and Liens created or granted under the Collateral Documents (as defined in the Credit Agreement) in assets and property of, and equity interests in, the Company and its Subsidiaries and (ii) the release on the Closing Date of the Company and each of its Subsidiaries from all guaranty obligations under the Guaranty (as defined in the Credit Agreement), in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Purchaser (such documentation, the “Credit Release Documentation”).
6.17 Additional Required Financial Information. To the extent the Closing Date occurs sixty (60) or more days after December 31, 2017 or March 31, 2018, as applicable, the Company shall deliver the applicable Additional Required Financial Information to the Purchaser within five (5) Business Days after such Additional Required Financial Information becomes available.
6.18 Foreign Subsidiaries. Prior to the Closing, the Company shall (or shall cause its applicable Subsidiaries to) distribute or otherwise divest all of the equity interests of Big Fish Games Luxembourg SARL, and liquidate or dissolve, or distribute or otherwise divest all of its equity interest in Big Fish Games Ireland Limited to the Seller or one or more of the Seller’s Affiliates (other than the Company or any of its Subsidiaries) or, in the Company’s discretion, to a third party (such transactions, the “Restructuring Transaction”). All documentation relating to the Restructuring Transaction executed after the date hereof shall be subject to the Purchaser’s prior review and approval, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed.
6.19 Transitional Services. Promptly following the date hereof, the Parties shall negotiate in good faith, and at Closing shall, or shall cause their applicable Affiliates to, enter into, a mutually acceptable transition services agreement pursuant to which, from and after the Closing, the Seller or its Affiliates shall provide to the Company or its Affiliates certain treasury, financial reporting, accounts payable and other services agreed upon by the Parties. Such services shall be provided without charge, except that the Company or its relevant Affiliate shall reimburse the Seller and its Affiliates for their actual costs and expenses incurred in providing such services, including the allocable portion of any overhead or related expenses, but in any case excluding any markup. For the avoidance of doubt, the entry into a transition services agreement after the date hereof shall not be a condition to Closing under this Agreement.
VII. TAX MATTERS
The following provisions of this Article VII shall govern the allocation between the Purchaser and the Seller of responsibility for certain Tax matters involving the Company following the Closing Date. In the event of any conflict between the provisions of this Article VII and any other provision of this Agreement, the provisions of this Article VII shall control.
7.1 Preparation of Tax Returns; Control of Audits; Tax Refunds.
(a)The Seller shall prepare or cause to be prepared for filing by the Company all Tax Returns for the Company and its Subsidiaries for all Tax periods ending on or before the Closing Date (the “Pre-Closing Tax Periods”) that are due after the Closing Date other than Tax Returns filed on an affiliated, combined, consolidated or unitary basis with the Seller or any Affiliate of the Seller other than solely the Company and its Subsidiaries (collectively, the “Pre-Closing Tax Returns”). Such Pre-Closing Tax Returns





shall be prepared in a manner consistent with the Company’s or the relevant Subsidiary’s past practices, except to the extent required by applicable Law. Such income, franchise, value added, goods and services and similar Tax Returns (including any related work papers or other information reasonably requested by the Purchaser) shall be provided to the Purchaser for its review not later than forty-five (45) Business Days before the due date for filing such Tax Returns (including extensions) (or, in the case of Pre-Closing Tax Returns due within forty-five (45) Business Days after the Closing Date, as promptly as practicable after the Closing Date), and the Seller shall notify the Purchaser with respect to any such Tax Return not prepared in a manner consistent with applicable past practice. If the Purchaser does not provide the Seller with a written description of the items in the Pre-Closing Tax Returns that the Purchaser intends to dispute within fifteen (15) Business Days following the delivery to the Purchaser of such Pre-Closing Tax Returns, the Purchaser shall be deemed to have accepted and agreed to such documents in the form provided, and the Purchaser shall thereafter cause all such Pre-Closing Tax Returns to be timely filed by the Company. The Purchaser shall not make any changes to such Pre-Closing Tax Returns without the prior written approval of the Seller. The Seller and the Purchaser agree to timely consult with each other and to negotiate in good faith any timely-raised issue arising as a result of the review of such Pre-Closing Tax Returns to permit the filing of such Pre-Closing Tax Returns, as promptly as possible, which good faith negotiations shall include each side exchanging in writing their positions concerning the matter(s) in dispute and a meeting to discuss their respective positions. In the event the Parties are unable to resolve any dispute within ten (10) Business Days following the delivery of written notice by the Purchaser of such dispute, the Seller and the Purchaser shall jointly request the Accounting Firm to resolve any issue in dispute at least five (5) Business Days before the due date of such Pre-Closing Tax Return, in order that such Pre-Closing Tax Return may be timely filed. The Accounting Firm shall make a determination with respect to any disputed issue within five (5) Business Days before the due date (including extensions) for the filing of the Pre-Closing Tax Return in question, and the Purchaser shall cause the Company and its Subsidiaries to file such Pre-Closing Tax Return on the due date (including extensions) therefor in a manner consistent with the determination of the Accounting Firm. The determination of the Accounting Firm shall be binding on the Parties; provided, however, that any such determination shall be limited to the resolution of issues in dispute. The fees and disbursements of the Accounting Firm shall be borne equally by the Seller and the Purchaser. Except as expressly contemplated in this Article VII, under no circumstances shall the Purchaser or the Company amend any Pre-Closing Tax Returns for Pre-Closing Periods without the prior written consent of the Seller (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed). The Seller covenants and agrees to pay when due any Taxes reflected as due and owing on any Pre-Closing Tax Return prepared and filed pursuant to this Section 7.1(a), other than to the extent that any such Tax is taken into account for purposes of determining Closing Working Capital. No election shall be made under Section 338 of the Code or similar provision of state, local or foreign Law with respect to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.
(b)In the case of any Straddle Period, the amount of any Taxes of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries for the portion of the Straddle Period ending on and including the Closing Date shall be determined based on a closing of the books as of the close of business on the Closing Date (and for such purpose, the taxable period of any partnership or other pass-through entity in which the Company or any of its Subsidiaries holds a beneficial interest shall be deemed to terminate at such time) except that the amount of other Taxes of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries imposed on a time basis for a Straddle Period that relates to the portion of the Straddle Period ending on and including the Closing Date shall be deemed to be the amount of such Tax for the entire taxable period multiplied by a fraction the numerator of which is the number of days in the taxable period ending on the Closing Date and the denominator of which is the number of days in such Straddle Period. The Purchaser shall cause the Company to prepare or cause to be prepared, and file or cause to be filed, all Tax Returns for the Straddle Periods. Such Tax Returns shall be prepared in a manner consistent with the Company’s past practices, unless otherwise required by applicable Law. Such Tax Returns (including any related work papers or other information reasonably requested by the Seller)





with respect to a Straddle Period (“Straddle Period Tax Returns”) shall be provided to the Seller for its review not later than forty-five (45) Business Days before the due date for filing such Straddle Period Tax Returns (including extensions) (or, in the case of Straddle Period Tax Returns due within forty-five (45) Business Days after the Closing Date, as promptly as practicable after the Closing Date), and the Purchaser shall notify the Seller with respect to any such Straddle Period Tax Return not prepared in a manner consistent with applicable past practice. If the Seller does not provide the Purchaser with a written description of the items in the Straddle Period Tax Returns that the Seller intends to dispute within fifteen (15) Business Days following the delivery to the Seller of such Straddle Period Tax Returns, the Seller shall be deemed to have accepted and agreed to such Straddle Period Tax Returns in the form provided, and the Purchaser shall thereafter cause such Straddle Period Tax Returns to be timely filed by the Company in the form provided to the Seller. The Purchaser and the Seller agree to timely consult with each other and to negotiate in good faith any timely-raised issue arising as a result of the review of such Straddle Period Tax Returns to permit the filing of such Straddle Period Tax Returns as promptly as possible, which good faith negotiations shall include each side exchanging in writing their positions concerning the matter or matters in dispute and a meeting to discuss their respective positions. In the event the Parties are unable to resolve any dispute within ten (10) Business Days following the delivery of written notice by the Seller of such dispute, the Purchaser and the Seller shall jointly request the Accounting Firm to resolve any issue in dispute at least five (5) Business Days before the due date of such Straddle Period Tax Returns, in order that such Straddle Period Tax Return may be timely filed. The Accounting Firm shall make a determination with respect to any disputed issue within five (5) Business Days before the due date (including extensions) for the filing of the Straddle Period Tax Return in question, and the Purchaser shall cause the Company to file such Straddle Period Tax Return on the due date (including extensions) therefor in a manner consistent with the determination of the Accounting Firm. The determination of the Accounting Firm shall be binding on the Parties; provided, however, that any such determination shall be limited to the resolution of issues in dispute. The fees and disbursements of the Accounting Firm shall be borne equally by the Seller and the Purchaser. In addition to the Straddle Period Tax Returns prepared by the Purchaser pursuant to this Section 7.1(b), the Purchaser shall also submit to the Seller, together with Straddle Period Tax Returns, a proposed allocation of the Tax liability shown on such Straddle Period Tax Return that relates to the portion of the Straddle Period ending on and including the Closing Date, determined in accordance with this Section 7.1(b) (“Seller’s Straddle Period Allocation”), and the dispute resolution mechanism set forth in this Section 7.1(b) shall also apply with respect to such proposed Seller’s Straddle Period Allocation. The Seller covenants and agrees to pay when due the Seller’s Straddle Period Allocation (as finally determined, if applicable, between the Parties or by the Accounting Firm in the manner described above) of Taxes shown as due and owing on any Straddle Period Tax Return no later than three (3) Business Days prior to the due date for payment of such Taxes, except for any amount of such Tax that has been taken into account for purposes of determining Closing Working Capital.
(c)The Purchaser and the Seller shall cooperate in connection with the filing of the Tax Returns pursuant to this Section 7.1 and, subject in all respects to the provisions of Section 7.2, in connection with any Legal Proceeding with respect to the Taxes of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries. Such cooperation shall include reasonably furnishing or making available during normal business hours of personnel, powers of attorney, and the retention and (upon a Party’s request) the provision of records and information that are reasonably relevant to the preparation of any such Tax Return or to any such Legal Proceeding. The Purchaser and the Seller shall (i) retain or cause to be retained all books and records that are in their possession with respect to Tax matters pertinent to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries relating to any Pre-Closing Tax Period or Straddle Period until the expiration of the applicable statute of limitations (and, to the extent notified by the Purchaser or the Seller, any extension thereof) of the applicable taxable periods, and abide by all record retention agreements entered into with any Governmental Authority, and (ii) give the other Parties reasonable written notice before transferring, destroying or discarding any such





books and records and, if the other Party so requests, the Purchaser or the Seller, as the case may be, shall allow the other Party to take possession of such books and records.
(d)The Purchaser and the Seller shall, upon request, use their commercially reasonable efforts to obtain any certificate or other document from any Person as may be necessary to mitigate, reduce or eliminate any Tax that could be imposed on the Company or any of its Subsidiaries (including with respect to the transaction contemplated hereby).
(e)To the extent that, subsequent to the Closing Date, the Purchaser, the Company, any of its Subsidiaries or any Affiliates (i) actually receives any cash Tax refund attributable to any Pre-Closing Tax Period of the Company or any Subsidiary of the Company or (ii) actually uses any credits against Taxes in lieu of refunds described in clause (i), such Tax refund or credits shall be the property of the Seller net of any cost or expense incurred by the Purchaser, the Company, any of its Subsidiaries or any of their Affiliates in connection with procuring or receiving such refund or credit, other than to the extent set forth in the following sentence, and the Purchaser shall remit, and shall cause the Company and any Subsidiary of the Company, as applicable, to remit such Tax refund(s) or credits to the Seller, within three (3) Business Days after the actual receipt by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries of such Tax refunds or after the actual reduction of a cash Tax payment on account of such Tax credits. The foregoing shall not apply with respect to any Tax refund that is reflected as an asset of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries for purposes of determining Closing Working Capital.
(f)Without the prior written consent of the Seller, neither the Purchaser nor the Company nor any Affiliates thereof shall make or change any election, change any annual accounting period, file any amended Tax Return, enter into any closing agreement, settle any Tax claim or assessment relating to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, surrender any right to claim a refund of Taxes, or take any other similar action, or omit to take any action, in each case relating to Taxes of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries in respect of a Pre-Closing Tax Period or Straddle Period, if such action or omission would have the effect of increasing the liability or obligation of the Seller, the Company or any of its Subsidiaries with respect to Taxes related to the Pre-Closing Tax Period or Straddle Period, unless such election, change in annual accounting period, or filing of an amended Tax Return is required under applicable Law.
(g)The Purchaser shall promptly notify the Seller in writing upon receipt by the Purchaser, any of its Affiliates or, after the Closing Date, the Company or any of its Subsidiaries of notice of any pending or threatened federal, state, local or foreign Tax audits, assessments, or administrative or court Legal Proceeding relating to Taxes for which the Seller, any of its Affiliates or, with respect to Pre-Closing Tax Periods or any Straddle Period, the Company or any of its Subsidiaries may be liable. The Seller shall have the right to represent the Company’s and each Subsidiary’s interests in any such Tax audit, assessment or administrative or court Legal Proceeding relating any such Taxes and to employ counsel of the Seller’s choice at the Seller’s expense; provided, however, that (i) the Purchaser and its Representatives shall be permitted, at the Purchaser’s expense, to be present at, and participate in, any such Legal Proceeding, (ii) the Seller shall not be permitted to take a position in such Legal Proceeding reasonably expected to adversely affect the liability for Taxes of the Company for any Tax period ending after the Closing Date without the prior written consent of the Purchaser (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), (iii) the Purchaser shall have the right, but not the obligation, to represent the Company’s and each Subsidiary’s interest in any such Legal Proceeding if the Seller declines to represent such entity’s interests, and (iv) the Seller shall not be permitted to represent the Company’s or any Subsidiary’s interest in any such Legal Proceeding unless the Seller first acknowledges in writing to the Purchaser that the Seller will assume responsibility for any liability arising from the resolution of any such Legal Proceeding. Neither the Purchaser nor any Affiliate of the Purchaser shall be entitled to settle, either administratively or after the commencement of litigation, any claim for Taxes which could adversely affect such liability for such Taxes without the prior





written consent of the Seller (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed). Neither the Seller nor any Affiliate of the Seller shall be entitled to settle, either administratively or after the commencement of litigation, any claim for Taxes which would adversely affect such liability for such Taxes of the Purchaser or any of its Affiliates (including the Company and its Subsidiaries) without the prior written consent of the Purchaser (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed).
(h)Section 7.1(g) shall apply with respect to any audit, assessment, or administrative or court Legal Proceeding relating to any payments (or the failure to make any payments) under escheatment and unclaimed property Law as if such payments were Taxes.
7.2 Transfer Taxes. All transfer, documentary, sales, use, stamp, registration, value added, and other such similar Taxes (including any penalties and interest) incurred in connection with this Agreement or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, will be borne equally between the Purchaser and the Seller and paid by such Parties when due, and the Purchaser will, at its own expense, file all necessary Tax Returns and other documentation with respect to all such Taxes.
7.3 Survival. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, the representations and warranties of Section 3.6 and the covenants and agreements in this Article VII shall survive the Closing and shall remain in full force and effect until the later of (a) ninety (90) days after the expiration of the applicable statutes of limitation for the Taxes in question (taking into account any extensions or waivers thereof and including any extensions of statutory periods relating to the collection of Taxes), and (b) in the case of any claim made with reasonable specificity by the Party seeking to be indemnified and within the time period set forth in clause (a), until such claim is finally and fully resolved.

(i) Each of the representations and warranties of the Purchaser contained in this Agreement (other than the Purchaser Fundamental Representations) shall be true and correct at and as of the Closing as if made on the Closing Date (other than representations and warranties made as of another date, which representations and warranties shall have been true and correct as of such date), except for such breaches or inaccuracies, as the case may be, that have not resulted, or would not reasonably be expected to result, individually or in the aggregate, in a Purchaser Material Adverse Effect; provided, however, that for purposes of determining the satisfaction of this condition, no effect shall be given to the exceptions of “material” or “Purchaser Material Adverse Effect” in such representations and warranties; (ii) each of the Purchaser Fundamental Representations shall be true and correct in all material respects at and as of the Closing Date as if made on the Closing Date (other than representations and warranties that are made as of a specific date, which representations and warranties shall have been true and correct in all material respects as of such date); (iii) the covenants contained in this Agreement required to be complied with by the Purchaser on or before the Closing shall have been complied with in all material respects; and (iv) the Purchaser shall have delivered to the Seller a certificate dated the Closing Date, certifying as to the matters set forth in clauses (i) through (iii) of this Section 8.2(a).

IX. SURVIVAL; INDEMNIFICATION
9.1 Survival. Notwithstanding any right of any Party to fully investigate the affairs of the other Parties and not withstanding any knowledge of facts determined or determinable by such Party pursuant to such investigation or right of investigation, each Party has the right to rely fully upon the representations, warranties, covenants and agreements of each other Party contained in this Agreement. The indemnification





obligations of the Parties with respect to (a) inaccuracies in or breaches of representations and warranties set forth in this Agreement shall terminate and expire, and shall cease to be of any force or effect, on the date that is the eighteen (18) month anniversary of the Closing Date, and all liability with respect to such indemnification obligations shall thereupon be extinguished (except (x) to the extent a claim for indemnification has been validly made prior to such time for any breach thereof, which shall terminate and expire immediately after the claim is finally and fully resolved, (y) for indemnification obligations with respect to Purchaser Fundamental Representations, Company Fundamental Representations (other than the representations and warranties in Section 3.6 (Tax Matters)) and Seller Fundamental Representations, which shall terminate and expire, and shall cease to be of any force or effect, on the date that is the later of the third anniversary of the Closing Date and the date that is ninety (90) days after the expiration of the applicable statute of limitations (taking into account extensions or waivers and including the maximum periods for extension under applicable Law), and (z) for indemnification obligations with respect to the representations and warranties in Section 3.6 (Tax Matters) and the covenants and agreements in Article VII, which shall terminate and expire, and shall cease to be of any force or effect, as set forth in Section 7.3) and (b) breaches of covenants and agreements set forth in this Agreement shall terminate and expire, and shall cease to be of any force or effect, on the date that is (i) in the case of covenants and agreements to be performed prior to the Closing, the first (1st) anniversary of the Closing Date and (ii) for all other covenants and agreements, on the date on which such covenants and agreements expire in accordance with their terms or, if no such term is specified, until the full performance thereof (except, in each case (i) and (ii), to the extent a claim for indemnification has been validly made prior to such time for any breach thereof, which shall terminate and expire immediately after the claim is finally and fully resolved). It is the express intent of the Parties that, if the applicable survival period for a representation or warranty or covenant or agreement as contemplated by this Section 9.1 is shorter than the statute of limitations period (taking into account extensions or waivers and including the maximum periods for extension under applicable Law) that would otherwise have been applicable to such representation or warranty or covenant or agreement, then by virtue of this Agreement, the applicable statute of limitations period (taking into account extensions or waivers and including the maximum periods for extension under applicable Law) with respect to such representation or warranty or covenant or agreement shall be reduced to the shortened survival period expressly stated in this Section 9.1, as applicable thereto. The Parties further acknowledge that the time periods set forth in this Section 9.1 for the assertion of claims for breaches of representations and warranties or covenants or agreements under this Agreement are the result of arms’-length negotiation among the Parties and that they intend for the time periods to be enforced as agreed among the Parties.
9.2 Indemnification by the Seller.
(a)Subject to the terms and conditions of this Article IX, from and after (and contingent on) the Closing, the Seller shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the Purchaser and its Affiliates, Representatives, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Purchaser Indemnified Parties”) against, and shall compensate and reimburse the Purchaser Indemnified Parties for, any and all Damages actually incurred or suffered by the Purchaser Indemnified Parties to the extent arising out of or resulting from: (i) any inaccuracy in or breach of any representation or warranty made by the Company or the Seller in this Agreement or any certificate delivered pursuant to this Agreement (in each case, without giving effect to any materiality, Material Adverse Effect or similar qualification limiting the scope of such representation or warranty, other than with respect to Sections 3.5(a) and 3.7(b) and the term “Material Contracts” as used in Section 3.9 and elsewhere in this Agreement); (ii) any breach of any covenant or agreement required to be performed by the Company prior to the Closing, the Seller pursuant to this Agreement; (iii) any Indebtedness of the Company or its Subsidiaries incurred prior to the Closing and outstanding as of the Closing and any Selling Expenses, in each case, that are not taken into account in the Purchase Price adjustment pursuant to Section 2.5; and (iv)





the Restructuring Transaction (including all Restructuring Taxes), Big Fish Games Luxembourg SARL or Big Fish Games Ireland Limited.
(b)The Purchaser Indemnified Parties shall have no right to recover any amounts pursuant to Section 9.2(a) unless on or before the applicable date specified in Section 9.1, the Purchaser notifies the Seller in writing of a claim specifying the factual basis of that claim in reasonable detail to the extent then known by the Purchaser.
(c)The Purchaser Indemnified Parties shall have no right to recover any amounts pursuant to Section 9.2(a)(i) until the total amount of such Damages incurred by the Purchaser Indemnified Parties under Section 9.2(a)(i), in the aggregate, exceeds $9,900,000 (the “Deductible”), in which case the Purchaser Indemnified Parties will be entitled to recover any Damages pursuant to Section 9.2(a)(i) in excess of the Deductible, subject to the other limitations in this Article IX. Furthermore, no Purchaser Indemnified Party shall be entitled to indemnification with respect to any individual claim pursuant to Section 9.2(a)(i) for Damages if the entire amount of Damages related to such claim is less than $50,000 (the “Per-Claim Threshold”); provided that in the case of any group of claims arising out of the same or substantially similar facts, events or circumstances, such claims shall be aggregated for purposes of determining whether the Per-Claim Threshold has been exceeded. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the limitations in this Section 9.2(c) shall not apply to claims of actual fraud or any inaccuracy in or breach of the Company Fundamental Representations or the Seller Fundamental Representations.
(d)The Purchaser Indemnified Parties shall have no right to recover any amounts pursuant to Section 9.2(a)(i) (other than for claims of actual fraud or any inaccuracy in or breach of any Company Fundamental Representation or Seller Fundamental Representation) in excess of $99,000,000.
(e)Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary, except with respects to claim of actual fraud or for claims brought pursuant to Section 6.14 with respect to the Primary Specified Litigation, the Seller’s maximum aggregate indemnification liability pursuant to Section 9.2(a) shall not exceed the Purchase Price.
9.3 Indemnification by the Purchaser.
(a)Subject to the terms and conditions of this Article IX, from and after (and contingent on) the Closing, the Purchaser shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the Seller and its Affiliates, Representatives, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Seller Indemnified Parties”) against, and shall compensate and reimburse the Seller Indemnified Parties for, any and all Damages actually incurred or suffered by the Seller Indemnified Parties to the extent arising out of or resulting from: (i) any inaccuracy in or breach of any representation or warranty made by the Purchaser in this Agreement or any certificate delivered pursuant to this Agreement (in each case, without giving effect to any materiality, Purchaser Material Adverse Effect or similar qualification limiting the scope of such representation or warranty); and (ii) any breach of any covenant or agreement required to be performed by the Purchaser pursuant to this Agreement.
(b)The Seller Indemnified Parties shall have no right to recover any amounts pursuant to Section 9.3(a) unless on or before the applicable date specified in Section 9.1, the Seller notifies the Purchaser in writing of a claim specifying the factual basis of that claim in reasonable detail to the extent then known by the Seller.
(c)The Seller Indemnified Parties shall have no right to recover any amounts pursuant to Section 9.3(a)(i) until the total amount of such Damages incurred by the Seller Indemnified Parties under Section 9.3(a)(i), in the aggregate, exceeds the Deductible, in which case the Seller Indemnified Parties will





be entitled to recover any Damages pursuant to Section 9.3(a)(i) in excess of the Deductible, subject to the other limitations in this Article IX. Furthermore, no Seller Indemnified Party shall be entitled to indemnification with respect to any individual claim pursuant to Section 9.3(a)(i) for Damages if the entire amount of Damages related to such claim is less than the Per-Claim Threshold; provided that in the case of any group of claims arising out of the same or substantially similar facts, events or circumstances, such claims shall be aggregated for purposes of determining whether the Per-Claim Threshold has been exceeded. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the limitations in this Section 9.3(c) shall not apply to claims of actual fraud or any inaccuracy in or breach of the Purchaser Fundamental Representations.
(d)The Seller Indemnified Parties shall have no right to recover any amounts pursuant to Section 9.3(a)(i) (other than for claims of actual fraud or any inaccuracy in or breach of any Purchaser Fundamental Representation) in excess of $99,000,000.
(e)Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary, except with respects to claim of actual fraud, the Purchaser’s maximum aggregate indemnification liability pursuant to Section 9.3(a) shall not exceed the Purchase Price.
9.4 Indemnification Procedures.
(a)Except as provided in Article VII with respect to certain Tax matters, if any Person entitled to seek indemnification under Section 9.2 or 9.3 (an “Indemnified Party”) receives notice of the assertion, continuation or commencement of any Third Party Claim against such Indemnified Party and wishes to seek indemnification from any other Party (an “Indemnifying Party”) pursuant to this Agreement, the Indemnified Party shall give such Indemnifying Party reasonably prompt written notice thereof; provided, however, that if the Indemnified Party receives a complaint, petition, or any other pleading in connection with a Third Party Claim which requires the filing of an answer or other responsive pleading, the Indemnified Party shall furnish the Indemnifying Party with a copy of such pleading at least thirty (30) days prior to the date a responsive pleading thereto is required to be filed (or promptly upon receipt by the Indemnified Party, if the Indemnified Party receives such complaint, petition or other pleading within such thirty (30) day period). Such notice by the Indemnified Party will describe the Third Party Claim in reasonable detail, will include copies of all available written evidence thereof, and will indicate the estimated amount, if reasonably practicable, of the Damages that have been or may be sustained by the Indemnified Party. The Indemnifying Party will have the right to participate in the defense of such Third Party Claim at the Indemnifying Party’s expense, or at its option (subject to the limitations set forth in this Section 9.4(a)) to assume the defense thereof; provided, however, that:
(i)the Indemnifying Party must give the Indemnified Party written notice of its election to assume control of the defense of the Third Party Claim within ten (10) days of the Indemnifying Party’s receipt of notice of the Third Party Claim;
(ii)the Indemnified Party shall be entitled to (x) participate in the defense of the Third Party Claim; provided, however, that the fees and expenses of such defense shall be borne by the Indemnified Party, except that the Indemnifying Party shall pay any reasonable fees and expenses of separate counsel that are incurred prior to the date the Indemnifying Party effectively assumes control of such defense; and (y) shall have the right to receive, and the Indemnifying Party shall promptly provide to the Indemnified Party, copies of all pleadings and other material documents related to such Third Party Claim; provided, that following the Indemnifying Party’s assumption of the defense of such Third Party Claim, if the Indemnified Party reasonably concludes, based upon advice of counsel, that the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party have a material conflict or that there are legal defenses available to the Indemnified Party that are different from or in addition to those available to the Indemnifying Party with respect to such Legal





Proceeding, the Indemnifying Party shall pay for the reasonable fees and costs of outside legal counsel for the Indemnified Party in connection with such defense, which such reasonable fees and costs shall be deemed Damages that are entitled to indemnification hereunder;
(iii)the Indemnifying Party shall not be so entitled to assume and control such defense if (t) an actual conflict of interest (as determined by the Indemnified Party after obtaining advice of counsel) exists between the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party with respect to the Third Party Claim that precludes effective joint representation, (u) the Third Party Claim seeks remedies other than or in addition to money damages, (v) the Indemnifying Party shall not have irrevocably and unconditionally agreed, on a timely basis in accordance with clause (i) above, to indemnify the Indemnified Party with respect to such Third Party Claim (subject to the limitations of this Article IX), (w) the Third Party Claim relates to or arises in connection with any criminal proceeding, action, indictment, investigation or allegation, (x) such Third Party Claim alleges infringement, misappropriation or other violation of the Intellectual Property or Intellectual Property Rights of a third party, or (y) such Third Party Claim alleges a violation of Law by, or is brought by a Governmental Authority and is reasonably likely to result in a regulatory enforcement action by a Governmental Authority against, the Indemnified Party and, in the case of this clause (y), would reasonably be expected to result in a material and adverse change in the business of the Indemnified Party or any of its Affiliates.
(iv)If the Indemnifying Party does not elect to undertake any such defense against a Third Party Claim (or is not entitled to do so pursuant to this Section 9.4(a)), then the Indemnified Party may assume such defense, and any out-of-pocket expenses (including reasonable and documented attorneys’ fees) incurred by the Indemnified Party or its Affiliates in connection with such defense shall be deemed Damages that are entitled to indemnification pursuant to Section 9.2, and the Indemnifying Party may participate in such defense at its own expense, and shall have the right to receive copies of all pleadings and other material documents related to such Third Party Claim. The Indemnified Party shall cooperate with the Indemnifying Party in such defense by the Indemnifying Party and make available to the Indemnifying Party all witnesses, records, materials and information in the Indemnified Party’s possession or under the Indemnified Party’s control relating thereto as is reasonably requested by the Indemnifying Party. If the Indemnifying Party elects to assume and control the defense of any such Third Party Claim, the Indemnifying Party shall not consent to a settlement or compromise of, or the entry of any judgment arising from, such Third Party Claim unless the Indemnified Party consents in writing; provided that such consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed so long as: (i) a firm offer is made to settle a Third Party Claim that (A) does not impose injunctive or other equitable relief against the Indemnified Party or any of its Affiliates, (B) does not contain a financial or other obligation on the part of the Indemnified Party or any of its Affiliates, and (C) provides, in customary form, for the full, unconditional written release of each Indemnified Party and its Affiliates from all Liabilities and obligations in connection with such Third Party Claim, and (ii) the Indemnifying Party provides written notice to the Indemnified Party that it desires to accept and agree to such offer and the terms thereof. If the Indemnified Party has assumed the defense of a Third Party Claim pursuant to Section 9.4(a), it shall not consent to a settlement or compromise of, or the entry of any judgment arising from, any Third Party Claim unless the Indemnifying Party consents in writing (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed).
(b)Any claim by an Indemnified Party on account of Damages that does not result from a Third Party Claim (a “Direct Claim”) will be asserted by giving the Indemnifying Party reasonably prompt written notice thereof, but in any event not later than thirty (30) days after the Indemnified Party becomes aware of such Direct Claim. Such notice by the Indemnified Party will describe the Direct Claim in reasonable detail, will include copies of all available material written evidence thereof, and will indicate the estimated amount, if reasonably practicable, of Damages that has been or may be sustained by the Indemnified Party.





The Indemnifying Party will have a period of thirty (30) days from which to respond in writing to such Direct Claim. If the Indemnifying Party does not respond within such thirty (30) day period, the Indemnifying Party will be deemed to have rejected such claim, in which event the Indemnified Party will be free to pursue such remedies as may be available to the Indemnified Party at the Indemnifying Party’s expense pursuant to the terms and subject to the provisions of this Agreement.
(c)A failure to give timely notice or to include any specified information in any notice as provided in Sections 9.4(a) or 9.4(b) will not affect the rights or obligations of any Party, except the extent that, as a result of such failure, any Party that was entitled to receive such notice was deprived of its right to recover any payment under its applicable insurance coverage or was otherwise actually and materially prejudiced as a result of such failure.
(d)Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the Purchaser shall be entitled to control the defense of any Third Party Claim arising out of or relating to the matters set forth on Schedule 6.14.
9.5 Miscellaneous Indemnification Provisions.
(a)Exclusive Remedy. Following the Closing, other than claims for actual fraud, the indemnification provisions of Section 6.14 and this Article IX shall be the sole and exclusive remedy of the Indemnified Parties and their respective Affiliates with respect to claims under, or otherwise relating to the transactions that are the subject of, this Agreement, whether sounding in contract, tort, fraud, or otherwise, and whether asserted against the Company or its Subsidiaries, their respective officers, directors or employees, the Seller or any other Person. For purposes of this Agreement, “actual fraud” means a fraud involving a knowing and intentional misrepresentation of a fact related to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (made with the knowledge that a representation or warranty set forth in this Agreement was actually breached when made), and made with the express intent of inducing the other Party to enter into this Agreement and upon which such Party has relied to its detriment (as opposed to any fraud claim based on constructive knowledge, negligent misrepresentation or a similar theory). Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, in no event shall any Party, its successors or permitted assigns be entitled to claim or seek rescission of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. Each of the Parties, on behalf of itself and its equity owners, directors, managers, officers, employees, and Affiliates, agrees not to bring any actions or proceedings, at Law, equity or otherwise, against any other Party or its and its equity owners, directors, managers, officers, employees, and Affiliates, in respect of any breach or alleged breach of any representation, warranty, covenant and agreement in this Agreement, except pursuant to the express provisions of Section 6.14 and this Article IX. Notwithstanding the foregoing restrictions, each Party shall be entitled to bring an action for injunctive or other equitable relief to enforce the terms of this Agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, none of the provisions set forth in this Agreement, including the provisions set forth in Section 6.14 and this Article IX shall be deemed a waiver by any Party of any right or remedy which such Party may have at law or in equity based on the actual fraud of any other Party, nor will any such provisions limit, or be deemed to limit: (i) the amounts of recovery sought or awarded in any claim for actual fraud against such other Party; (ii) the time period during which a claim for actual fraud may be brought against such other Party; or (iii) the recourse which any such party may seek against such other Party with respect to a claim for actual fraud.
(b)Purchase Price Adjustment. The Parties agree that any indemnification payment made pursuant to this Agreement shall be treated as an adjustment to the Purchase Price for Tax purposes, unless otherwise required by Law.





(c)Good Faith; Mutual Cooperation. The Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party shall reasonably cooperate with each other with respect to resolving any claim or liability with respect to which Party is obligated to indemnify the other Party hereunder, including by using commercially reasonable efforts to mitigate or resolve any such claims or liability to the extent required under applicable Law; provided that, any reasonable costs or expenses incurred by the Indemnified Party in its efforts to mitigate or resolve any such claims or liability shall be deemed Damages for which the Indemnified Party shall be entitled to indemnification under and subject to this Article IX. In the event that an Indemnified Party fails to make such commercially reasonable efforts to mitigate or resolve any such claim or liability to the extent required under applicable Law, then notwithstanding anything else to the contrary contained herein, the Indemnifying Party shall not be required to indemnify the Indemnified Party for any Damages that would reasonably be expected to have been avoided if the Indemnified Party had made such efforts.
(d)Set-Off. In addition to any right of set-off, deduction or recoupment provided or allowed by Law, in the event a Party is obligated to make payments under this Agreement to the other Party, such Party may, by written notice to the other Party, set off against, and deduct and recoup from, any amounts due from the other Party under this Agreement.
X. MISCELLANEOUS
10.1 Termination.
(a)This Agreement may be terminated at any time prior to the Closing:
(i)by the written consent of the Purchaser and the Seller;
(ii)by the Purchaser, in the event of any breach by the Company or the Seller of any covenant, representation, or warranty contained in this Agreement that would prevent or has prevented the satisfaction of any condition to the obligations of the Purchaser set forth in Section 8.1, at the Closing, and such breach has not been waived by the Purchaser, as applicable, or, in the case of a covenant breach, cannot be or has not been cured by the Company or the Seller within the earlier of (A) thirty (30) days after written notice thereof from the Purchaser and (B) the Outside Date; provided that the Purchaser is not then in breach of any of its representations, warranties, covenants or agreements contained in this Agreement which breach would give rise to a failure of a condition to the obligations of the Seller set forth in Section 8.2;
(iii)by the Seller, in the event of any breach by the Purchaser of any covenant, representation, or warranty contained in this Agreement that would prevent or has prevented the satisfaction of any condition to the obligation of the Seller set forth in Section 8.2 at the Closing, and such breach has not been waived by the Seller or, in the case of a covenant breach, cannot be or has not been cured by the Purchaser, as applicable, within the earlier of (A) thirty (30) days after written notice thereof by the Seller and (B) the Outside Date; provided that neither the Seller nor the Company is then in breach of any of its representations, warranties, covenants or agreements contained in this Agreement which breach would give rise to a failure of a condition to the obligations of the Purchaser set forth in Section 8.1;
(iv)by the Purchaser or the Seller, if the transactions contemplated hereby have not been consummated by the Outside Date; provided, however, that the Purchaser or the Seller, as applicable, will not be entitled to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 10.1(a)(iv) if the Purchaser’s breach of this Agreement, on the one hand, or the Company’s or the Seller’s breach of this Agreement, on the other hand, has prevented the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement by such date; or





(v)by either the Purchaser or the Seller, by written notice to the other Party, if the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement is otherwise enjoined or prohibited by the terms of any Law or a final, non-appealable Order;
(b)Any Party desiring to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 10.1(a) shall give written notice of such termination to the other Party or Parties, as the case may be, to this Agreement. In the event of the termination of this Agreement, this Agreement shall thereupon become null and void and of no further force and effect, except for the provisions of Article I and this Article X. Nothing in this Section 10.1 shall be deemed to release any Party from any liability for actual fraud or breach by such Party of any of the terms or provisions of this Agreement prior to termination, or impair the right of any Party to compel specific performance by any other Party of its obligations under this Agreement.
10.2 No Recourse to Debt Financing Sources. Subject to the rights of the parties to the Debt Commitment Letter and the Fee Letter related thereto under the terms thereof, (i) no Seller Related Party shall have any right, claim or recourse whatsoever, whether at law or equity, in contract, tort or otherwise, in connection with this Agreement, the Debt Financing or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, toward or against the Debt Financing Sources, (ii) the Debt Financing Sources shall not have any obligations or liabilities to the Seller Related Parties and all such obligations and liabilities, if any, are hereby irrevocably waived, and (iii) the Debt Financing Sources shall not be liable to any Seller Related Party for any special, consequential, punitive or indirect damages or damages of a tortious nature. For the avoidance of doubt, (a) nothing in this Section 10.2 is intended to limit or modify any obligations or liabilities the Debt Financing Sources may have toward the Purchaser, its Affiliates or their respective shareholders, partners, members, controlling persons or Representatives under the Debt Commitment Letter and the Fee Letter related thereto and (b) the Debt Financing Sources and their respective Affiliates and their respective shareholders, partners, members, controlling persons and Representatives shall not have any right, claim or recourse whatsoever, whether at law or equity, in contract, tort or otherwise, in connection with this Agreement, the Debt Financing or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, toward or against any Party hereto or any related Person thereof.

Therefore, each of the Parties to this Agreement hereby agrees that (i) the Parties to this Agreement shall be entitled to obtain an injunction or injunctions to prevent breaches of any of the terms or provisions of this Agreement, and to enforce specifically the performance by each other Party hereto under this Agreement and (ii) the right of specific enforcement is an integral part of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and without that right, neither the Seller, the Company nor the Purchaser would have entered into this Agreement. Each Party to this Agreement hereby agrees to waive the defense in any such suit that the other Parties to this Agreement have an adequate remedy at law and to interpose no opposition, legal or otherwise, as to the propriety of injunction or specific performance as a remedy, and hereby agrees to waive any requirement to post any bond in connection with obtaining such relief. The equitable remedies described in this Section 10.11 shall be in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other remedies at law or in equity that the Parties to this Agreement may elect to pursue.
10.12 Counterparts.

10.13 Headings. The headings in this Agreement are for convenience of reference only and will not control or affect the meaning or construction of any provisions of this Agreement.
10.14 Entire Agreement. This Agreement (including the Schedules hereto) constitutes the entire agreement among the Parties with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement, and is a complete and final integration thereof. This Agreement (including the Schedules hereto) supersedes all prior agreements and understandings, both oral and written, between the Parties with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement, which the Parties disclaim reliance on.
10.15 Confidentiality.
(a)The terms of the confidentiality agreement dated July 17, 2017, as amended from time to time (the “Confidentiality Agreement”), by and between Aristocrat Technologies Australia Pty Limited and the Seller are incorporated into this Agreement by reference and shall continue in full force and effect (and all obligations thereunder shall be binding upon the Purchaser and its Representatives as if parties thereto) until the Closing, at which time the obligations under the Confidentiality Agreement shall terminate; provided, however, that the Purchaser’s confidentiality obligations shall terminate only in respect of that portion of the Confidential Information (as defined in the Confidentiality Agreement) relating to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, the Company, the Company’s Subsidiaries, their respective assets or properties, or the Business, and for all other Confidential Information the Confidentiality Agreement shall continue in full force and effect in accordance with its terms. If, for any reason, the Closing does not occur, the Confidentiality Agreement shall continue in full force and effect in accordance with its terms.
(b)Each Party agrees that it will treat in confidence all documents, materials and other information which it shall have obtained regarding the other Parties hereto during the course of the negotiations leading to the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby (whether obtained before or after the





date of this Agreement), the investigation provided for herein and the preparation of this Agreement and other related documents, and, in the event the transactions contemplated hereby shall not be consummated, each Party will return to the other Parties or destroy all copies of nonpublic documents and materials which have been furnished in connection therewith. Such documents, materials and information shall not be communicated to any third party (other than to its counsel, accountants or Affiliates). No Party shall use or disclose any confidential or proprietary information of any other Party or any other Party’s Affiliates in any manner whatsoever except solely for the purpose of evaluating the proposed transactions contemplated by this Agreement; provided, however, that after the Closing, (x) the Purchaser or any of its Affiliates may use or disclose any confidential information related to the transactions contemplated hereby, the Company, its Subsidiaries, their respective assets, operations or business (including the Business) or the Products and (y) the Seller shall, and shall cause its Subsidiaries and Representatives to, (i) keep confidential all non-public or proprietary information existing prior to or as of the Closing Date to the extent relating to the Company, its Subsidiaries, their respective assets, operations or business (including the Business), and (ii) only use such information to the extent required to comply with their obligations pursuant to this Agreement. The Parties acknowledge the practical difficulty of policing the use of information in the unaided memory of the individuals at the Seller and its Subsidiaries, and as such each Party agrees that the Seller and its Subsidiaries shall not be prohibited from using, for any purpose permitted under this Agreement, without restriction or obligation any information in a nontangible form that is unintentionally retained in the unaided memory (i.e., without conscious memorization or subsequent reference to any material which is written or stored in electronic or physical form) of the individuals at the Seller and its Subsidiaries who have had access to such information prior to the Closing, including concepts, know-how or techniques contained therein. The obligation of each Party to treat such documents, materials and other information in confidence shall not apply to any information which (i) is or becomes available to such Party from a source other than the other Party or its Affiliates or Representatives, (ii) is or becomes available to the public other than as a result of disclosure by such Party or its Affiliates or Representatives, (iii) is required to be disclosed under applicable Law (regulatory reporting requirements) or judicial process but only to the extent it must be disclosed, (iv) subject to the Seller’s obligations under clause (y) of the previous sentence, was in a Party’s possession or available to such Party before receipt from any other Party or from any party with a confidentiality agreement with any such other Party, (v) is independently conceived and developed by such Party or its Affiliates or Representatives without violating the terms of this Agreement or (vi) is related to the assertion of such Party’s rights under or in connection with this Agreement, but only in the case of clauses (i) through (vi) to the extent it must be disclosed, and only in the cases of clauses (iii) and (vi), if such Party provides prior notice of any such disclosure to the Party whose information is subject to disclosure so that the other Party may seek an appropriate protective order and discloses only those portions of such information legally required to be disclosed. No Party shall have any obligation hereunder to keep confidential any non-public or proprietary information of any other Party if and to the extent disclosure of any such information is specifically required by applicable Law, the requirements of a national securities exchange (including NASDAQ regulations or the rules of the Australian Securities Exchange), or court proceedings or similar legal process. In such event, and to the extent permitted by applicable Law or legal process and prior to any such disclosure of such information, the party under an obligation to disclose may make such disclosure of such information in order not to commit a violation of Law or legal process, and shall use commercially reasonable efforts to notify the other Party of such requirements to afford the Party who initially provided such information the opportunity to seek, at its sole cost and expense, a protective order or other remedy.
(c)Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement or the Confidentiality Agreement to the contrary, the Purchaser and its Representatives may disclose (i) Confidential Information (as defined in the Confidentiality Agreement) and (ii) the documents, materials and other information described in Section 10.15(b) to actual and prospective Debt Financing Sources and investors in connection with the Debt





Financing or any alternative financing (provided that such actual and prospective Debt Financing Sources and investors are subject to customary confidentiality provisions).
10.16 Severability. If any provision of this Agreement or the application of any such provision to any Person or circumstance is held invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect by a court of competent jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability will not affect any other provision and such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision will be reformed, construed and enforced as if such provision had never been contained herein and there had been contained in this Agreement instead such valid, legal and enforceable provisions as would most nearly accomplish the intent and purpose of such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision.
10.17 Legal Representation. The Purchaser and the Company hereby agree, on their own behalf and on behalf of their directors, managers, members, officers, employees and Affiliates, and each of their successors and assigns (all such parties, the “Waiving Parties”), that, following the Closing, Sidley may represent the Seller or any manager, director, member, partner, officer, employee or Affiliate of the Seller in connection with any dispute, litigation, claim, proceeding or obligation arising out of the negotiation, preparation, execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby (any such representation, the “Post-Closing Representation”) notwithstanding its pre-Closing representation (or any continued representation) of the Company. Each of the Purchaser and the Company on behalf of itself and the Waiving Parties hereby consents to any Post-Closing Representation and (a) irrevocably waives (and will not assert) any actual or potential conflict of interest or any argument that Sidley is otherwise prohibited from engaging in such representation, and (b) agrees that, in the event that a dispute arising after the Closing between the Purchaser or the Company, on the one hand, and the Seller or any of the Seller’s Affiliates, on the other hand, Sidley may represent, solely in a Post-Closing Representation, the Seller or any of the Seller’s Affiliates in such Post-Closing Representation even though the interests of such person(s) may be directly adverse to the Purchaser or the Company and even though Sidley may have represented the Company in a manner substantially related to such dispute. The Purchaser and the Company each acknowledges that the foregoing provision applies whether or not Sidley provides legal services to the Company after the Closing Date. Each of the Purchaser and the Company, for itself and the Waiving Parties, hereby irrevocably acknowledges and agrees that all communications between the Company and the Seller and their counsel, including Sidley, made in connection with the negotiation, preparation, execution, delivery and performance under, or any dispute or proceeding arising out of or relating to, this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby, are privileged communications that are also subject to the expectation of client confidence, that do not remain with the Company following the Closing, and instead remain with and are controlled by the Seller (the “Privileged Communications”). For the avoidance of doubt, with respect to privileged communications between the Company and Sidley that do not relate to the negotiation, preparation, execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement, the privilege will remain with the Company and is not waived under this Section 10.17. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that a dispute arises between the Purchaser, the Company or any of its Subsidiaries and a third party other than a party to this Agreement after the Closing, the Company may assert the attorney-client privilege to prevent disclosure of confidential communications by Sidley to such third party; provided, however neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries may waive such privilege without the prior written consent of the Seller. The Purchaser and the Company, together with any of their respective Affiliates, Subsidiaries, successors or assigns, agree that no Person may use or rely on any of the Privileged Communications, whether located in the records or email server of the Company, or otherwise, in any action against or involving any of the Parties after the Closing, and the Purchaser and the Company agree not to assert that the privilege has been waived as to the Privileged Communication that may be located in the records or email server of the Company.





10.18 Press Release and Announcements. The initial press release by Seller concerning the transactions contemplated by this Agreement shall be reasonably acceptable to the Purchaser. Neither the Purchaser nor the Seller nor the Company (nor any of their respective Affiliates) shall, without the approval of each other Parties (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), make any other press release or other public announcement concerning the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, except as required by Law (including applicable securities Laws) or stock exchange rules, in which case such Party shall, to the extent practicable, consult the other Parties (whether or not such other Party is named in such release or announcement) a reasonable time prior to its release or announcement to allow the other Parties to comment on such release or announcement in advance of such issuance and, after such release or announcement, shall provide the other Parties with a copy thereof (or summary thereof in the case of oral announcement); provided, however, that the foregoing shall not preclude communications or disclosures necessary to implement the provisions of this Agreement.
10.19 Exclusivity of Agreement. The Parties have voluntarily agreed to define their rights, liabilities and obligations respecting the subject matter of this Agreement exclusively in contract pursuant to the express terms and provisions of this Agreement, and the Parties expressly disclaim that they are owed any duties or are entitled to any remedies not expressly set forth in this Agreement. Furthermore, the Parties hereby acknowledge that this Agreement embodies the justifiable expectations of sophisticated parties derived from arm’s length negotiations, and all Parties to this Agreement specifically acknowledge that no Party has any special relationship with another Person that would justify any expectation beyond that of an ordinary buyer and an ordinary seller in an arm’s length transaction. From and after the Closing, the sole and exclusive remedies for any breach of the terms of this Agreement (including any representations and warranties set forth herein) shall be those remedies available at law or in equity for breach of contract only (as such contractual remedies may be further limited or excluded pursuant to the express terms of this Agreement), and the Parties hereto hereby waive and release any and all tort claims and causes of action that may be based upon, arise out of, or relate to this Agreement, or the negotiation, execution or performance of this Agreement (including any tort claim or cause of action based upon, arising out of, or related to any representation or warranty made in or in connection with this Agreement or as an inducement to enter this Agreement). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the limitations in this Section 10.19 shall not apply to claims of actual fraud.
