VOTING AGREEMENT AND IRREVOCABLE PROXY

SECTION 2.1 Agreement to Vote.

(a) Each Stockholder hereby agrees that, during the Voting Period, such Stockholder shall vote or execute consents, as applicable, with respect to the Owned Shares and any New Shares owned by such Stockholder as of the applicable record date (or cause to be voted or a consent to be executed with respect to the Owned Shares or any New Shares owned by such Stockholder as of the applicable record date) in favor of the approval and adoption of the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, at any meeting (or any adjournment or postponement thereof) of, or in connection with any proposed action by written consent of, the holders of Company Stock at or in connection with which any of the holders vote or execute consents with respect to any of the foregoing matters.

(b) Subject to Section 3.2 hereof, each Stockholder hereby agrees that, during the Voting Period, such Stockholder shall vote or execute consents, as applicable, with respect to the Owned Shares and any New Shares owned by such Stockholder as of the applicable record date (or cause to be voted or a consent to be executed with respect to the Owned Shares and any New Shares owned by such Stockholder as of the applicable record date) against each of the matters set forth in clauses (i), (ii), (iii) and (iv) below at any meeting (or any adjournment or postponement thereof) of, or in connection with any proposed action by written consent of, the holders of Company Stock at or in connection with which any of the holders vote or execute consents with respect to any of the following matters:

(i) any merger agreement or merger (other than the Merger Agreement, the Merger or any business combination or transaction with Parent or any of its affiliates), consolidation, combination, reorganization, recapitalization, dissolution, liquidation or winding up of or by the Company or any other business combination or extraordinary corporate transaction involving the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, or any sale, lease or transfer of a material amount of assets of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries;

(ii) any amendment of the Company’s certificate of incorporation, as amended to date, unless such amendment is consented to by Parent;

(iii) any action, proposal, transaction or agreement that would reasonably be expected to result in a breach in any respect of any covenant, representation or warranty or any other obligation or agreement of the Company contained in the Merger Agreement or of such Stockholder contained in this Agreement; and

(iv) any action, proposal, transaction or agreement involving the Company or any of its Subsidiaries that would reasonably be expected to prevent,

 

-3-


impede, frustrate, interfere with, delay, postpone or adversely affect the Merger and the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement.

(c) Any vote required to be cast or consent required to be executed pursuant to this Section 2.1 shall be cast or executed in accordance with the applicable procedures relating thereto so as to ensure that it is duly counted for purposes of determining that a quorum is present (if applicable) and for purposes of recording the results of that vote or consent. Nothing contained in this Section 2.1 shall require any Stockholder to vote or execute any consent with respect to any Option Shares or RSU Shares not issued to the Stockholder prior to the applicable record date for that vote or consent.

SECTION 2.2 Grant of Irrevocable Proxy. Each Stockholder hereby irrevocably appoints Parent and any designee of Parent, and each of them individually, as such Stockholder’s proxy and attorney-in-fact, with full power of substitution and resubstitution, to vote or execute consents during the Voting Period, with respect to the Owned Shares and any New Shares owned by such Stockholder as of the applicable record date, in each case solely to the extent and in the manner specified in Section 2.1. This proxy is given to secure the performance of the duties of such Stockholder under this Agreement, and its existence will not be deemed to relieve such Stockholder of its obligations under Section 2.1. Other than as described in this Section 2.2 and other than the granting of proxies to vote Owned Shares or New Shares with respect to the election of directors and ratification of the appointment of the Company’s auditors at the Company’s annual meeting of Stockholders, in accordance with the recommendation of the Board of Directors of the Company, such Stockholder shall not directly or indirectly grant any Person any proxy (revocable or irrevocable), power of attorney or other authorization with respect to any of such Stockholder’s Owned Shares or New Shares. For Owned Shares or New Shares as to which the Stockholder is the beneficial but not the record owner, such Stockholder will cause any record owner of such Owned Shares or New Shares to grant to Parent a proxy to the same effect as that contained in this Section 2.2.

SECTION 2.3 Nature of Irrevocable Proxy. The proxy and power of attorney granted pursuant to Section 2.2 by each Stockholder shall be irrevocable during the Voting Period, shall be deemed to be coupled with an interest sufficient in law to support an irrevocable proxy and shall revoke any and all prior proxies granted by such Stockholder with regard to such Stockholder’s Owned Shares or any New Shares acquired by such Stockholder, and such Stockholder acknowledges that the proxy constitutes an inducement for Parent and Sub to enter into the Merger Agreement. The power of attorney granted by each Stockholder is a durable power of attorney and shall survive the bankruptcy, dissolution, death or incapacity of such Stockholder. The proxy and power of attorney granted hereunder shall terminate only upon the expiration of the Voting Period.

The Stockholder shall immediately cease and cause to be terminated any ongoing solicitation, discussion or negotiation with any Person conducted prior to the date of this Agreement by the Stockholder or any of its Representatives with respect to any actual or potential Acquisition Proposal.

The written notice shall include the identity of the Person making such Acquisition Proposal, request or inquiry, the material terms of the Acquisition Proposal, request or inquiry (including any material written amendments or modifications, or any proposed material written amendments or modifications, thereto), and the Stockholder shall keep Parent reasonably informed on a current basis of any material changes with respect to such Acquisition Proposal, request or inquiry.

SECTION 3.3 General Covenants. Each Stockholder agrees that such Stockholder shall not:

(a) enter into any agreement, commitment, letter of intent, agreement in principle, or understanding with any Person or take any other action that violates or conflicts with or would reasonably be expected to violate or conflict with, or result in or give rise to a violation of or conflict with, such Stockholder’s covenants and obligations under this Agreement or make any of its representations and warranties contained herein untrue or incorrect; or

(b) take any action that could restrict or otherwise affect such Stockholder’s legal power, authority and right to comply with and perform such Stockholder’s covenants and obligations under this Agreement.

SECTION 3.4 Stockholders’ Capacity. Parent and Sub acknowledge that no Stockholder is making any agreement or understanding herein in such Stockholder’s capacity as a director or officer of the Company and that each Stockholder is executing this agreement solely in such Stockholder’s capacity as the owner of Company Stock and nothing herein shall limit or affect any actions taken by such Stockholder in such Stockholder’s capacity as a director or officer of the Company.

SECTION 3.5 Letter of Transmittal and Delivery of Merger Consideration. Parent agrees to provide the Stockholders a copy of the letter of transmittal referenced in Section 2.2 of the Merger Agreement a reasonable time period prior to the anticipated Closing Date to allow the Stockholders to complete the letter of transmittal and provide such letter of transmittal to the Paying Agent prior to or on the Closing Date. Parent agrees to use reasonable best efforts to cause the Paying Agent to deliver by wire transfer of immediately available funds the Merger Consideration to which the Stockholders are entitled under the terms of the Merger Agreement on the same date as the Closing Date.
