(f) The Company shall select an underwriter or underwriters in connection with any Underwritten Offering. In connection with any Underwritten Offering, the Company shall enter into customary agreements (including an underwriting agreement in customary form) and take all such other actions as are reasonably required in order to expedite or facilitate the disposition of such Registrable Securities in any such Underwritten Offering, including, to the extent necessary, the engagement of a “qualified independent underwriter” in connection with the qualification of the underwriting arrangements with FINRA.
(g) Subject to the execution of confidentiality agreements satisfactory in form and substance to the Company in the exercise of its good faith judgment, the Company will give to the Holders, their counsel and accountants (i) reasonable and customary access to its books and records, that, in the opinion of the Board are pertinent corporate documents, and (ii) such opportunities to discuss the business of the Company with its directors, officers, employees, counsel and the independent public accountants who have certified its financial statements, as shall be appropriate, in the reasonable judgment of counsel, to the Holders, to enable them to exercise its due diligence responsibility.
(h) The Company shall use its reasonable best efforts to furnish to the Holders and to each such underwriter, if any, a signed counterpart, addressed to the Holders or such underwriter, of (i) an opinion or opinions of counsel to the Company and (ii) a comfort letter or comfort letters from the Company’s independent public accountants, each in customary form and covering such matters of the kind customarily covered by opinions or comfort letters, as the case may be, as the Holder and the underwriters reasonably request.
(i) Each Holder shall promptly furnish in writing to the Company such information regarding such Holder that is reasonably necessary for the distribution of the Registrable Securities as the Company may from time to time reasonably request and such other information regarding such Holder as may be legally required or advisable in connection with such registration.
(j) Each Holder agrees that, upon receipt of any notice from the Company of the happening of any event of the kind described in Section 2.2(e), such Holder shall forthwith discontinue disposition of Registrable Securities pursuant to the registration statement covering such Holder’s Registrable Securities until such Holder’s receipt of the copies of the supplemented or amended prospectus contemplated by Section 2.2(e), and, if so directed by the Company, such Holders shall destroy all copies, other than any permanent file copies then in such Holder’s possession, of the most recent prospectus covering such Registrable Securities at the time of receipt of such notice.

Section 2.5 Indemnification by the Company. In the event of any registration of any securities of the Company under the Securities Act pursuant to this Article II, the Company will, and it hereby does, indemnify and hold harmless, to the extent permitted by law, each Holder, each Affiliate of such Holder and its members and managing members (including any director, officer, Affiliate, employee, agent and controlling person of any of the foregoing, if applicable), each other person who participates as an underwriter in the offering or sale of such securities and each other person, if any, who controls such seller or any such underwriter within the meaning of the Securities Act (collectively, the “Indemnified Parties”), against any and all losses, claims, damages or liabilities, joint or several, and expenses (including reasonable attorney’s fees and reasonable expenses of investigation) to which such Indemnified Party may become subject under the Securities Act, common law or otherwise, insofar as such losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or actions or proceedings in respect thereof, whether or not such Indemnified Party is a party thereto) arise out of or are based upon (i) any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of any material fact contained in any registration statement under which such securities were registered under the Securities Act, any preliminary, final or summary prospectus contained therein, or any amendment or supplement thereto, or (ii) any omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein (in the case of a prospectus, in light of the circumstances under which they were made) not misleading, and the Company will reimburse such Indemnified Party for any legal or any other expenses reasonably incurred by it in connection with investigating or defending against any such loss, claim, liability, action or proceeding; provided, that the Company shall not be liable to any Indemnified Party in any such case to the extent that any such loss, claim, damage, liability (or action or proceeding in respect thereof) or expense arises out of or is based upon any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission made in such registration statement or amendment or supplement thereto or in any such preliminary, final or summary prospectus in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished to the Company with respect to such person through an instrument duly executed by such person specifically stating that it is for use in the preparation thereof.
Section 2.6 Indemnification by the Holders. Each of the Holders hereby agrees to indemnify and hold harmless, severally and not jointly, the Company and all other prospective sellers of Registrable Securities with respect to any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement in, or omission or alleged omission from, any registration statement that includes any Registrable Securities and that is filed in accordance with this Article II, any preliminary, final or summary prospectus contained therein, or any amendment or supplement, if such untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission was made in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished to the Company with respect to such Holder through an instrument duly executed by such Holder or underwriter specifically stating that it is for use in the preparation of such registration statement, preliminary, final or summary prospectus or amendment or supplement, or a document incorporated by reference into any of the foregoing. Such indemnity shall remain in full force and effect, regardless of any investigation made by or on behalf of the Company or the Holders, or any of their respective Affiliates, directors, officers or controlling persons, and shall survive the Transfer of such securities by such Holder. In no event shall the liability of the Holders hereunder be greater in amount than the dollar amount of the proceeds received by the Holders upon the sale of the Registrable Securities giving rise to such indemnification obligation.
Section 2.7 Conduct of Indemnification Proceedings. Promptly after receipt by an Indemnified Party hereunder of written notice of the commencement of any action or proceeding with respect to which a claim for indemnification may be made pursuant to this Article II, such Indemnified Party will, if a claim in respect thereof is to be made against an indemnifying party, give written notice to the latter of the commencement of such action; provided, that the failure of the Indemnified Party to give notice as provided herein shall not relieve the indemnifying party of its obligations under this Article II, except to the extent that the indemnifying party is actually prejudiced by such failure to give notice. In case any such action is brought against an Indemnified Party, unless in such Indemnified Party’s reasonable judgment a conflict of interest between such Indemnified Party and indemnifying parties may exist in respect of such claim, the indemnifying party will be entitled to participate in and to assume the defense thereof, jointly with any other indemnifying party similarly notified to the extent that it may wish, with counsel reasonably satisfactory to such Indemnified Party, and after notice from the indemnifying party to such Indemnified Party of its election so to assume the defense thereof, the indemnifying party will not be liable to such Indemnified Party for any legal or other expenses subsequently incurred by the latter in connection with the defense thereof other than reasonable costs of investigation. No indemnifying party will consent to entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement which does not include as an unconditional term thereof, the giving by the claimant or plaintiff to such Indemnified Party of a release from all liability in respect to such claim or litigation.
Section 2.8 Contribution. If the indemnification provided for in this Article II from the indemnifying party is unavailable to an Indemnified Party hereunder in respect of any losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses referred to herein, then the indemnifying party, in lieu of indemnifying such Indemnified Party, shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by such Indemnified Party as a result of such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the indemnifying party and Indemnified Parties in connection with the actions which resulted in such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses, as well as any other relevant equitable considerations. The relative fault of such indemnifying party and Indemnified Parties shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether any action in question, including any untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or omission or alleged omission to state a material fact, has been made by, or relates to information supplied by, such indemnifying party or Indemnified Parties, and the parties’ relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such action. The amount paid or payable by a party under this Section 2.8 as a result of the losses, claims, damages, liabilities and expenses referred to above shall be deemed to include any legal or other fees or expenses reasonably incurred by such party in connection with any investigation or proceeding. In no event shall the liability of the Holders hereunder be greater in amount than the dollar amount of the proceeds received by the Holders upon the sale of the Registrable Securities giving rise to such indemnification obligation.
The parties hereto agree that it would not be just and equitable if contribution pursuant to this Section 2.8 were determined by pro rata allocation or by any other method of allocation which does not take account of the equitable considerations referred to in the immediately preceding paragraph. No person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Securities Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any person who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation.

(d) If any registration of Registrable Securities shall be effected in connection with a Underwritten Offering, neither the Company nor any Holder shall effect any public sale or distribution, including any sale pursuant to Rule 144, of any shares of Common Stock or other security of the Company (except as part of such Underwritten Offering) until the earliest of (i) 90 days following registrations of Registrable Securities pursuant to this Agreement, (ii) with respect to the Holders generally, such shorter time as may be agreed to by the underwriters with respect to any one Holder, and (iii) such time as members of management agree to with the underwriters with respect to the public sale or distribution of securities held by members of management.
