Promptly after receipt by an indemnified party of notice of commencement of any action covered by Section 7(A), (B), (C) or (D), the party to be indemnified shall, within five (5) business days, notify the indemnifying party of the commencement thereof; the omission by one (1) indemnified party to so notify the indemnifying party shall not relieve the indemnifying party of its obligation to indemnify any other indemnified party that has given such notice and shall not relieve the indemnifying party of any liability outside of this indemnification if not materially prejudiced thereby. In the event that any action is brought against the indemnified party, the indemnifying party will be entitled to participate therein and, to the extent it may desire, to assume and control the defense thereof with counsel chosen by it which is reasonably acceptable to the indemnified party.

No settlement of any action or proceeding against an indemnified party shall be made without the consent of the indemnifying party. F. In order to provide for just and equitable contribution in circumstances in which the indemnification provided for in Section 7(A) or 7(B) is due in accordance with its terms but is for any reason held by a court to be unavailable on grounds of policy or otherwise, the Company and the Placement Agent shall contribute to the aggregate losses, claims, damages and liabilities (including legal or other expenses reasonably incurred in connection with the investigation or defense of same) which the other may incur in such proportion so that the Placement Agent shall be responsible for such percent of the aggregate of such losses, claims, damages and liabilities as shall equal the percentage of the gross proceeds paid to the Placement Agent and the Company shall be responsible for the balance; provided, however, that no person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the 1933 Act shall be entitled to contribution from any person who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation. For purposes of this Section 7(F), any person controlling, controlled by or under common control with the Placement Agent, or any partner, director, officer, employee, representative or any agent of any thereof, shall have the same rights to contribution as the Placement Agent and each person controlling, controlled by or under common control with the Company within the meaning of Section 15 of the 1933 Act or Section 20 of the 1934 Act and each officer of the Company and each director of the Company shall have the same rights to contribution as the Company. Any party entitled to contribution will, promptly after receipt of notice of commencement of any action, suit or proceeding against such party in respect of which a claim for contribution may be made against the other party under this Section 7(D), notify such party from whom contribution may be sought, but the omission to so notify such party shall not relieve the party from whom contribution may be sought from any obligation they may have hereunder or otherwise if the party from whom contribution may be sought is not materially prejudiced thereby. 11 G. The indemnity and contribution agreements contained in this Section 7 shall remain operative and in full force and effect regardless of any investigation made by or on behalf of any indemnified person or any termination of this Agreement. H. The Company hereby waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, any right to or claim of any punitive, exemplary, incidental, indirect, special, consequential or other damages (including, without limitation, loss of profits) against the Placement Agent and each officer, director, shareholder, employee or representative of the placement agent and each person controlling, controlled by or under common control with the Placement Agent within the meaning of Section 15 of the 1933 Act or Section 20 of the 1934 Act or the Rules and Regulations arising out of any cause whatsoever (whether such cause be based in contract, negligence, strict liability, other tort or otherwise). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the aggregate liability of the Placement Agent and each officer, director, shareholder, employee or representative of the Placement Agent and each person controlling, controlled by or under common control with the Placement Agent within the meaning of Section 15 of the 1933 Act or Section 20 of the 1934 Act or the Rules and Regulations shall not exceed the compensation received by the Placement Agent pursuant to Section 2 hereof.
