NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the representations and warranties, covenants and agreements contained herein, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, the Parties agree as follows:

 
 

 

ARTICLE I
 
GOVERNANCE OF HOLDCO 1
 
SECTION 1.01                  Scope of the Agreement; Effective Time.  The Parties desire to set forth in this Agreement certain terms and conditions upon which they have agreed to hold their shares of Holdco 1 Stock, including with respect to disposition and voting thereof, as well as their agreements with respect to governance, management and operation of, and the relationship among, Holdco 1 and its Subsidiaries and certain other matters.  In the event of any inconsistency or conflict between the provisions of this Agreement and the other Organizational Documents of Holdco 1 or any of its Subsidiaries, this Agreement shall control and the Parties shall use their commercially reasonable efforts to amend any such Organizational Documents to conform to the provisions of this Agreement and to exercise their rights under such Organizational Documents to give effect to such provisions.  This Agreement shall become effective only if, and at that time at which, Holdco 1 becomes a holder of at least 80% of the outstanding shares of TAM Ordinary Stock (the “Effective Time”).  All actions required to be taken or performed under this Agreement shall be taken or performed in accordance with applicable Law.
 
SECTION 1.02                  Formation of Holdco 1.  Prior to the date of this Agreement, TEP and LATAM incorporated Holdco 1 as a closed sociedad anónima under the Law of Chile with the by-laws in the form attached as Exhibit B hereto (the “Holdco 1 By-Laws”) for the sole purpose of owning the shares of TAM Ordinary Stock to be contributed by TEP.  From and after the Effective Time, the parties agree that all acquisitions of TAM Ordinary Stock by any member of the LATAM Group shall be made by Holdco 1.
 
SECTION 1.03                  Role and Composition of the Holdco 1 Board.  The business and affairs of Holdco 1 shall be managed under the direction of the board of directors of Holdco 1 (the “Holdco 1 Board”) in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Organizational Documents of Holdco 1.  At all times, the Holdco 1 Board shall be comprised of the same number of directors as the number of directors that then comprise the board of directors of TAM (the “TAM Board”) and the directors of Holdco 1 shall be the same individuals that then are directors of TAM.  The Holdco 1 Board shall be comprised of six directors and initially LATAM shall have the right to elect two individuals to the Holdco 1 Board and TEP shall have the right to elect four individuals to the Holdco 1 Board. Whenever LATAM or TEP so elects or appoints any individual as a director of Holdco 1, it will select, and Holdco 1 will elect or appoint, the same individual as a director of TAM.  Each person so elected by LATAM or TEP as a director of Holdco 1 is referred to herein as one of such Shareholder’s “Director Representatives”).  The term of office for the directors of the Holdco 1 Board shall be two years.

 
2

 

SECTION 1.04                  Removal and Vacancies.  In the event of any vacancy on the Holdco 1 Board resulting from the resignation, incapacity, retirement, death or removal of any Director Representative of any Shareholder, such Shareholder shall have the right to designate another individual to replace such Director Representative on the Holdco 1 Board.  In such event, the Shareholders shall cause their Director Representatives to request that the Holdco 1 Chairman call a special meeting of the Holdco 1 Board in order to appoint such designee to the Holdco 1 Board and to serve until the next annual meeting of the shareholders of Holdco 1 and at such meeting shall cause their Director Representatives to make such appointment. At the same time, LATAM and TEP shall cause their Director Representatives in their capacity as directors of TAM to request that the chairman of the TAM Board (the “TAM Chairman”) call a special meeting of the shareholders of TAM to elect such designee to the TAM Board and Holdco 1 shall elect such designee to the TAM Board to serve until the next annual meeting of the shareholders of TAM.  If at any time any Director Representative of any Shareholder ceases to be a member of the TAM Board, such Shareholder shall promptly cause him or her to resign or to be removed from the Holdco 1 Board and the Shareholders will replace such Director Representative on the Holdco 1 Board pursuant to the foregoing procedures.

SECTION 1.05                  Enabling Provisions.
 
(a)           Each Shareholder agrees that it shall vote, or cause to be voted or execute written consents for, as the case may be, all shares of Holdco 1 Voting Stock beneficially owned by it, and each Party shall take all other action reasonably necessary (including by causing Holdco 1 or TAM to call a special meeting of shareholders or the Holdco 1 Chairman or the TAM Chairman to call a special meeting of the Holdco 1 Board or the TAM Board, as applicable) so as to give effect to the agreements with respect to representation on the Holdco 1 Board and the TAM Board contained in this Article I and to ensure that the other Organizational Documents of Holdco 1 and TAM (i) facilitate, enable and do not at any time conflict with any provision of this Agreement and (ii) permit each Shareholder to receive the full benefits to which each Shareholder is entitled under this Agreement.  Each Party further agrees that it shall not take any action directly as a shareholder of Holdco 1 or TAM, indirectly through any of its Director Representatives as members of the Holdco 1 Board or the TAM Board, or otherwise that would contravene or frustrate the implementation of these agreements, and that it shall cause all of its Director Representatives as members of the Holdco 1 Board or the TAM Board to act at all times in conformity with, and to take such action as may reasonably be required of and available to them to ensure the fulfillment of, the terms of this Agreement and the other Organizational Documents of Holdco 1 and TAM.  Holdco 1 agrees not to take, or to cause or permit TAM to take, any action that would conflict with or subvert the operation or enforcement of any provision of this Agreement or that would impede any Shareholder’s ability to receive the full benefits to which such Shareholder is entitled under this Agreement.
 
(b)           Each Shareholder shall cause any and all shares of Holdco 1 Voting Stock beneficially owned by it and entitled to vote at any meeting of shareholders of Holdco 1 to be present in person or represented by proxy at all annual and special meetings of shareholders of Holdco 1 to the extent necessary so that all shares of Holdco 1 Voting Stock beneficially owned by it shall be counted as present for the purpose of determining the presence of a quorum at such meeting.  Each Shareholder further agrees to execute from time to time in the future any document or documents required by Law to keep the agreements contained in this Section 1.05 in full force and effect at all times throughout the term of this Agreement.  Each Shareholder agrees that it will take all necessary actions (including amending the Holdco 1 By-Laws) to effect and implement any stock splits or reverse stock splits of the Holdco 1 Non-Voting Stock at such times and in such proportions as any holder thereof shall request if (but only if) such split is necessary or advisable to permit or preserve the ability of TAM or any of its Subsidiaries to conduct operations in any market worldwide.

Each time an individual is so appointed as the Holdco 1 Chairman, LATAM and TEP shall cause their Director Representatives in their capacity as directors of TAM, and Holdco 1 shall cause the directors of TAM, to appoint the same individual as the TAM Chairman in accordance with the Organizational Documents of TAM (as defined in the TAM Shareholders Agreement).  As of the Effective Time and for a minimum period of two years, the Holdco 1 Chairman shall be Maria Cláudia Oliveira Amaro.  In no event shall the Holdco 1 Chairman have a casting vote with respect to any matter before the Holdco 1 Board.

(b)           Holdco 1 shall provide each Shareholder with copies of each completed annual tax return required by Law to be filed by Holdco 1 or any of its Subsidiaries (each, a “Tax Return”) at least twenty business days prior to the due date (including any extensions of such due date) of the filing of such Tax Return, and each Shareholder may review any such Tax Return prior to its filing with the appropriate Governmental Entity.  Holdco 1 shall consult with the Shareholders and negotiate in good faith to resolve any issues arising as a result of the Shareholders’ review of any such Tax Return.  The Shareholders and Holdco 1 and its Subsidiaries shall use all reasonable good faith efforts to resolve any issue in dispute as promptly as practicable but in any event prior to the due date for the filing of any such Tax Return.  In the event that an issue resulting from the review by a Shareholder of any such Tax Return remains in dispute as of the due date for the filing of such Tax Return, such Tax Return shall be filed with the appropriate Governmental Entity in accordance with the recommendation of the Accountants.

TRANSFERS AND CONVERSION OF STOCK
 
SECTION 3.01                  Restrictions on Certain Transfers.  No holder of any shares of Holdco 1 Voting Stock (other than LATAM) will, or will permit any of its Affiliates (including the ultimate beneficial owners of such holder) to, directly or indirectly, by operation of law or otherwise, sell, exchange, transfer, convey, assign, mortgage, pledge, encumber or otherwise dispose of any direct or indirect interest in or beneficial ownership of (each, a “Transfer”) all or any portion of the shares of Holdco 1 Voting Stock beneficially owned by it to any Person except in compliance with this Section 3.01.  Any Transfer made other than in compliance with the terms of this Section 3.01 shall be null and void and of no force or effect.  LATAM shall be entitled to specific performance (to the extent permitted by Law) of its rights under this Section 3.01, in addition to any other legal and equitable remedies to which it may be entitled under Law.  Without limitation of the foregoing, TEP shall not vote its shares of Holdco 1 Voting Stock, or take any other action, in support of any Transfer by Holdco 1 of any Equity Securities or any Convertible Securities issued by it or by any of TAM or its Subsidiaries without the prior written consent of LATAM.
 
(a)           Block Sales.  On and after the tenth anniversary of the Effective Time (the “Tenth Anniversary”) and prior to the first date on which LATAM would be permitted under applicable Law in Brazil and other applicable Law to fully convert all of the shares of Holdco 1 Non-Voting Stock beneficially owned by LATAM and its Affiliates into shares of Holdco 1 Voting Stock and such conversion would not have any Adverse Effect (the “Full Conversion Date”), TEP may sell or transfer all (but not less than all) of its shares of Holdco 1 Voting Stock to any Person in a single block sale (a “Block Sale”) if (but only if) such Block Sale complies with all of the requirements set forth in this Section 3.01(a).
 
(i)           A Block Sale must include all of the shares of LATAM Common Stock that TEP is contractually obligated to transfer along with its shares of Holdco 1 Voting Stock (collectively, “LATAM Shares”) in such Block Sale.
 
(ii)           Prior to a Block Sale, the Person to whom such shares are to be sold or transferred has been approved by a resolution duly adopted by the LATAM Board as a buyer of such shares of Holdco 1 Voting Stock; it being agreed that the LATAM Board shall grant such approval without unreasonable delay unless it has a bona fide business objection to such Person being the transferee of such shares or if a transfer of such shares to such Person would, in the reasonable determination of the LATAM Board, be inconsistent with applicable Law in Brazil.
 
(iii)         No Block Sale shall be permitted if it would have a material adverse effect on the ability of (x) LATAM or Holdco 1 to own, or to receive the full benefits of ownership of, TAM and its Subsidiaries or (y) TAM or its Subsidiaries to operate their airline businesses worldwide (each, an “Adverse Effect”).

(b)           Forced Vote Sales.  On and after the third anniversary of the Effective Time, if during any twenty-four month period TEP is required to vote its shares of common stock, no par value (the “LATAM Common Stock”), of LATAM as directed by the LATAM Controlling Shareholders at two meetings (consecutive or not) of the shareholders of LATAM held at least twelve months apart, then after the second such shareholder meeting TEP shall have the right to sell or transfer all (but not less than all) of its shares of Holdco 1 Voting Stock together with its LATAM Shares (each, a “Forced Vote Sale”) if (i) TEP delivers a written notice to LATAM within 30 days after the date on which such second meeting was held that it intends to make a Forced Vote Sale (the “Second Meeting Date”), (ii) if such Forced Vote Sale is made prior to the Full Conversion Date it complies with the requirements of Section 3.01(a), but without giving effect to the phrase “On and after the Tenth Anniversary and” at the beginning of such section and (iii) such Forced Vote Sale is completed within eighteen months after the Second Meeting Date (such period, as it may be extended pursuant to this Section 3.01(b), the “Forced Vote Sale Period”); provided that if TEP has made a bona fide and reasonably diligent effort to complete a Forced Vote Sale within the Forced Vote Sale Period but has been unable to do so, then the Forced Vote Sale Period shall be extended for twelve months.  If a Forced Vote Sale is not completed within the Forced Vote Sale Period, then this Section 3.01(b) shall only apply with respect to instances that TEP is required to vote its LATAM Shares as directed by the LATAM Controlling Shareholders after such date.
 
(c)           Release Event Sales.  If a Release Event occurs and prior to such Release Event TEP has not sold or transferred any shares of Holdco 1 Voting Stock and/or any shares of LATAM Common Stock that were (i) beneficially owned by TEP immediately after the Effective Time and (ii) not exempted from the provisions of Article III of the Control Group Shareholders Agreement at the time of such sale or transfer (collectively, “LATAM Restricted Shares”), then at any time after such Release Event, TEP shall have the right to sell or transfer all (but not less than all) of its shares of Holdco 1 Voting Stock together with its LATAM Restricted Shares; provided, however, that if the sale or transfer occurs prior to the Full Conversion Date it must comply with the requirements of Section 3.01(a) but without giving effect to the phrase “On and after the Tenth Anniversary and,” at the beginning of such section.  A “Release Event” shall be deemed to have occurred only if and when each of the following events shall have occurred: (i) a capital increase (as defined under the Law of Chile) in LATAM is completed after the Effective Time, (ii) TEP does not fully exercise the preemptive rights granted to it under applicable Law in Chile with respect to such capital increase in respect of all of its LATAM Restricted Shares, (iii) after such capital increase is completed, the individual designated by TEP for election to the LATAM Board with the assistance of the LATAM Controlling Shareholders is not elected to such board.
 
(d)           LATAM Transfers.  LATAM shall not sell or transfer any shares of TAM Stock to any Person (other than an Affiliate of LATAM) at any time when TEP owns any shares of Holdco 1 Voting Stock; provided, however, that, notwithstanding the foregoing LATAM will have the right to effect such a sale or transfer if LATAM (or its assignee) acquires all the shares of Holdco 1 Voting Stock beneficially owned by TEP for an amount equal to TEP’s then current tax basis in such shares and any costs TEP is required to incur to effect such sale or transfer at the same time as such sale or transfer. TEP hereby irrevocably grants LATAM the assignable right to purchase all of the shares of Holdco 1 Voting Stock beneficially owned by TEP in connection with any sale pursuant to the proviso in the immediately preceding sentence.

SECTION 3.02                  Ownership Control Events.  If at any time LATAM is permitted under the Law of Brazil and other applicable Law to beneficially own a greater percentage of the issued and outstanding shares of Holdco 1 Voting Stock than it currently beneficially owns, then LATAM shall have the right, exercisable in its sole discretion, in whole or in part, at any time or from time to time, to convert the shares of Holdco 1 Non-Voting Stock beneficially owned by it into shares of Holdco 1 Voting Stock on a 1:1 basis or at another conversion ratio agreed to by LATAM and TEP in writing prior to such conversion, in each case to the maximum extent allowable under applicable Law (the “Conversion Option”) by providing written notice of such election to TEP and Holdco 1 (each, an “Ownership Notice”); provided, however, that notwithstanding the foregoing LATAM may exercise the Conversion Option only if and to the extent that the consummation of such exercise would not have any Adverse Effect.  If at any time LATAM is permitted under applicable Law to have more than two Director Representatives on the Holdco 1 Board, then LATAM shall have the right, exercisable in its sole discretion, in whole or in part, at any time or from time to time, to appoint additional Director Representatives to the Holdco 1 Board in accordance with Section 1.03 by providing written notice of such election to TEP and Holdco 1 (each, a “Director Election Notice”); provided, however, that notwithstanding the foregoing LATAM shall not have the right to deliver any Director Election Notice that would result in it appointing half or a majority of the members of any Holdco 1 Board unless at such time LATAM is permitted under applicable Law in Brazil and other applicable Law to own a majority of the outstanding shares of Holdco 1 Voting Stock.  Promptly following delivery of any Ownership Notice or Director Election Notice to TEP and Holdco 1, each of Holdco 1 and TEP shall cooperate with LATAM and shall take or cause to be taken all actions (including by calling a special meeting of shareholders of Holdco 1 to remove all the directors of the Holdco 1 and to relect such directors and elect the additional individuals designated by LATAM to the Holdco 1 Board), and do or cause to be done all things, reasonably necessary, proper or advisable on its part under the Organizational Documents of Holdco 1 and applicable Law to permit LATAM to increase its representation on the Holdco 1 Board and/or to convert such shares of Holdco 1 Non-Voting Stock into shares of Holdco 1 Voting Stock pursuant to this Section 3.02.  Without limitation of the foregoing, TEP agrees to cause one or more of its Director Representatives to resign from each Holdco 1 Board promptly following request therefor from LATAM in order to effectuate the purpose of this Section 3.02.  LATAM and Holdco 1 shall take all necessary action to ensure that at the same time that any individuals are added or removed from the Holdco 1 Board as a result of this Section 3.02 the same individuals are added or removed from the TAM Board.  On and after the Tenth Anniversary and after LATAM has fully converted all of the shares of Holdco 1 Non-Voting Stock beneficially owned by it into shares of Holdco 1 Voting Stock as permitted by applicable Law in Brazil and other applicable Law (the “Full Ownership Conversion Date”), then LATAM shall have the right to purchase all of the shares of Holdco 1 Voting Stock held by all holders of such shares for an amount equal to TEP’s then current tax basis in such shares and any costs TEP is required to incur to effect such sale (the “Call Option”).  If LATAM does not exercise the Call Option within 30 days following the occurrence of the Full Ownership Conversion Date or if, after the Tenth Anniversary, LATAM has the right under applicable Law in Brazil and other applicable Law to fully convert all the shares of Holdco 1 Non-Voting Stock beneficially owned by it into shares of Holdco 1 Voting Stock, such conversion would not have an Adverse Effect and LATAM has not fully exercised such right within 30 days after the first date on which LATAM has such right, then each of the holders of the shares of Holdco 1 Voting Stock shall have the right to put its shares to LATAM for an amount equal to its then current tax basis in such shares and any costs that it is required to incur to effect such sale.
