12.  Successors and Assigns.  Except as otherwise provided herein, this Agreement shall bind and inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the Company and its successors and assigns and the Members and any subsequent holders of their respective Member Interests and the respective successors and assigns of each of them, so long as they hold Member Interests.
