5.                                       Tax Consequences.  The parties hereto acknowledge and agree that the U.S. and Dutch tax consequences of the transactions contemplated in this Agreement, including the Exchange Transactions and the STAK Deposit Transactions, may vary depending upon the current percentage of ownership in Issuer of each Exchanging Warrantholder and any other facts, circumstances and considerations relevant for tax purposes, specific to each Exchanging Warrantholder.  Each Exchanging Warrantholder acknowledges and agrees that it will determine and be responsible for its own U.S., Dutch and other tax consequences.  Each of the Issuer and STAK hereby disclaim any responsibility for, and shall not be liable or obligated in any way for the U.S., Dutch or other tax consequences applicable to any Exchanging Warrantholder arising from the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, including the Exchange Transactions and the STAK Deposit Transactions.

imposition or creation of a Lien upon or with respect to the Rights and Warrants being contributed by the Exchanging Warrantholder.  The Exchanging Warrantholder does not need to give any notice to, make any filing with, or obtain any authorization, consent or approval of any government or governmental agency in order to consummate the transactions contemplated in this Agreement, including the Exchange Transactions and the STAK Deposit Transactions.

 

(d)                                 Domicile.  The Exchanging Warrantholder’s principal domicile is the state in the United States, or the country, in each case as set forth below the Exchanging Warrantholders’s name on its signature page to this Agreement, and the offer and acceptance regarding the Exchanging Warrantholders’s Exchange Shares occurred in that state or country.

(d)                                 Governing Law.  This Agreement shall be construed and enforced in accordance with the substantive laws of the Netherlands without reference to principles of conflicts of law.

 

(e)                                  Counterparts; Several Obligations.  This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which will be deemed an original, but all of which together will constitute one and the same instrument.  To the extent that any Warrantholder does not execute this Agreement, this Agreement shall nonetheless be effective as a binding Agreement between the Issuer, on the one hand, and each Exchanging Warrantholder that executes this Agreement, on the other hand.  The obligations of each Exchanging Warrantholder under this Agreement are individual and several, not joint.

 

(f)                                    Headings.  The section headings contained in this Agreement are inserted for convenience only and shall not affect in any way the meaning or the interpretation of this Agreement.

 

(g)                                 Interpretation; Severability.  The terms of this Agreement will, where possible, be interpreted and enforced so as to sustain their legality and enforceability, read as if they cover only the specific situation to which they are being applied and enforced to the fullest extent permissible under applicable law.  If any term of this Agreement is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced, then all other terms and provisions of this Agreement shall nevertheless remain in full force and effect, and such term automatically will be amended so that it is valid, legal and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, but as close to the parties’ original intent as possible.

 

(h)                                 No Right of Employment or Continued Employment.  Neither the issuance of the Exchange Shares nor anything contained in this Agreement shall give any individual Exchanging Warrantholder any right to employment or continued employment, as applicable, by the Issuer or any parent or subsidiary of the Issuer or to prohibit or restrict the Issuer or any parent or subsidiary of the Issuer from terminating the Exchanging Warrantholder’s employment (if applicable) at any time or for any reason whatsoever, with or without cause, notwithstanding the effect any such action may have on such Exchanging Warrantholder the Closing Documents or any Exchange Shares or Depositary Receipts issued under this Agreement.

 

(i)                                     Jurisdiction.  The competent court in Amsterdam, the Netherlands shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute in connection with this Agreement without prejudice to the right of appeal and that of appeal to the Supreme Court

 

(j)                                     Parties in Interest; No Third-Party Beneficiaries.  Nothing in this Agreement (whether express or implied) will or is intended to confer any rights or remedies under or by reason of this Agreement on any person, except the Exchanging Warrantholders, the Issuer, STAK and their respective permitted successors and assigns.

 

(k)                                  Notices.  All notices, requests, demands, claims, and other communications hereunder shall be in writing, and shall only be deemed duly given (i) when delivered personally to the recipient, (ii) one business day after being sent to the recipient by reputable overnight courier service (charges prepaid), (iii) one business day after being sent to the recipient by facsimile transmission, or (iv) four business days after being mailed to the recipient by certified
