Section 2.02     Cooperation Prior to the Distribution.

Section 2.03     Conditions to the Distribution. This Agreement and the consummation of each of the transactions provided for herein shall be subject to approval of the BWC Board. The BWC Board shall in its discretion establish the Record Date and the Distribution Date and all appropriate procedures in connection with the Distribution, but in no event shall the Distribution Date occur prior to such time as each of the following has occurred or has been waived by the BWC Board in its sole discretion: (i) the consent to the Distribution of the lenders under BWC's existing bank credit agreement shall have been obtained or BWC shall have obtained an appropriate substitute line of credit; (ii) any required regulatory approvals and all other material consents required to effect the Distribution shall have been received; (iii) the BWC Board shall have formally approved the Distribution; (iv) the Automotive Financing shall have been completed; (v) BWC shall have received an opinion of counsel in form satisfactory to BWC that the Distribution will be a distribution described in Section 355(a) of the Code; and (vi) the transactions contemplated by Sections 3.01, 3.02 and 3.03 shall have been consummated in all material respects; provided that the satisfaction of such conditions shall not create any obligation on the part of BWC or any other party hereto to effect the Distribution or in any way limit BWC's power of termination set forth in Section 6.08 or alter the consequences of any such termination from those specified in such Section.
ARTICLE III
TRANSACTIONS RELATING TO THE DISTRIBUTION
Section 3.01     Intercorporate Reorganization. Prior to the Distribution Date, BWC and Automotive shall take all steps necessary to increase the outstanding shares of Automotive Common Stock so that immediately prior to the Distribution, BWC will hold a number of shares of Automotive Common Stock equal to the sum of the number of shares of BWC Voting Stock and the number of shares of BWC Non-Voting Stock outstanding on the Record Date. Such shares of Automotive Common Stock shall be the only capital stock of Automotive outstanding immediately prior to the Distribution.
Section 3.02     Intercompany Indebtedness. Immediately prior to the Distribution, Automotive shall pay $156,119,770.12 to BWC to reduce the intercompany indebtedness owed to BWC by Automotive and the Automotive Subsidiaries. Any intercompany indebtedness owed to BWC after such reduction shall be cancelled as a contribution to the capital of Automotive.
Section 3.03     Other Agreements. On or prior to the Distribution Date, BWC and Automotive shall execute and deliver the Tax Sharing Agreement, the Trademark Agreement, the Service Agreement and the Benefits Agreement.
Section 3.04     Automotive Charter and Bylaws. Prior to the Distribution Date, BWC shall cause the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation of Automotive, substantially in the form attached hereto as Annex E, to be filed with the Secretary of State of Delaware and to be in effect on the Distribution Date, and the Board of Directors of Automotive shall adopt the Bylaws of Automotive substantially in the form attached hereto as Annex F.
Section 3.05 Insurance.
(a)     BWC has provided insurance coverage to Automotive through various policies maintained by BWC for the benefit of itself and its subsidiaries for workers' compensation, general liability, fire and other types of losses. Automotive has paid premiums to BWC to provide such insurance, with deductibles, and for varying limits of liability. BWC will continue to provide such coverage to Automotive and Automotive Subsidiaries for all insured





incidents occurring from the date such coverage first commenced until 12:00 midnight on the Distribution Date or such later date as may be agreed to in writing by BWC and Automotive, and Automotive shall pay BWC the premiums for such coverage in accordance with the past practice established by BWC and Automotive.
(b)    BWC shall use reasonable efforts to assist Automotive and Automotive Subsidiaries in obtaining initial insurance coverage for Automotive and Automotive Subsidiaries from and after the Distribution Date in such amounts as are agreed upon by the parties; provided, however, that the foregoing shall not require BWC to provide financial assistance of any kind. Following the Distribution Date, each of the parties shall cooperate with and assist the other party in the prevention of conflicts or gaps in insurance coverage and/or collection of proceeds.
(c)    BWC and Automotive agree that Automotive shall have the right to present claims to BWC or BWC's insurers under all policies of insurance placed by BWC on Automotive's and Automotive Subsidiaries' behalf, or which include Automotive or Automotive Subsidiaries within them, for insured incidents occurring from the date said coverage first commenced until the Distribution Date. The parties agree that any such policies written on a "claims made" rather than "occurrence" basis may not provide coverage to Automotive and Automotive Subsidiaries for incidents occurring prior to the Distribution Date but which are first reported after the Distribution Date.
(d)    With respect to any insured Losses or retroactive premium adjustments relating to assets and/or operations of Automotive and/or Automotive Subsidiaries prior to the Distribution Date or such later date as may be agreed to pursuant to Section 3.05(a) hereof: (i) BWC shall pay over to Automotive any Insurance Proceeds it receives on account of such Losses and any such retroactive premium reductions; and (ii) Automotive and Automotive Subsidiaries shall reimburse BWC for all costs, expenses or payments made by BWC after the Distribution Date to insurers on account of such Losses (including, without limitation, any self-insured retention payments) and any such retroactive premium increases.
ARTICLE IV
INDEMNIFICATION
Section 4.01     Indemnification by BWC. Except with respect to employee benefits or other Liabilities to employees, which shall be governed by the Benefits Agreement, and except with respect to insurance claims, which shall be governed by Sections 3.05(d) and 4.03 hereof, BWC shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless Automotive, each Affiliate of Automotive and each of their respective directors, officers and employees and each of the heirs, executors, successors and assigns of any of the foregoing (the "Automotive Indemnitees") from and against any and all Losses of the Automotive Indemnitees arising out of or due to the failure of BWC or any of its Affiliates to pay, perform or otherwise discharge in due course any item set forth on Schedule A. Anything in this Section 4.01 to the contrary notwithstanding, neither BWC nor any BWC Subsidiary shall have any liability whatsoever to either Automotive or any Automotive Subsidiary in respect of any Tax (as such term is defined in the Tax Sharing Agreement), except as otherwise provided in Schedule A hereto, in the Benefits Agreement or in the Tax Sharing Agreement.
Section 4.02     Indemnification by Automotive. Except with respect to employee benefits or other Liabilities to employees, which shall be governed by the Benefits Agreement, and except with respect to insured claims, which shall be governed by Sections 3.05(d) and 4.03 hereof, Automotive shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless BWC, each Affiliate of BWC and each of their respective directors, officers and employees and each of the heirs, executors, successors and assigns of any of the foregoing (the "BWC Indemnitees") from and against any and all Losses of the BWC Indemnitees arising out of or due to the failure or alleged failure of Automotive or any of its Affiliates to pay, perform or otherwise discharge in due course any item set forth on Schedule B. Anything in this Section 4.02 to the contrary notwithstanding, neither Automotive nor any Automotive Subsidiary shall have any liability whatsoever to either BWC or any BWC Subsidiary in respect of any Tax, except as otherwise provided in Schedule B hereto, in the Benefits Agreement or in the Tax Sharing Agreement.





Section 4.03     Limitations on Indemnification Obligations. The amount which any party (an "Indemnifying Party") is or may be required to pay to any other party (an "Indemnitee") pursuant to Section 4.01 or Section 4.02 shall be reduced (including, without limitation, retroactively) by any Insurance Proceeds or other amounts actually recovered by or on behalf of such Indemnitee, in reduction of the related Loss. If an Indemnitee shall have received the payment required by this Agreement from an Indemnifying Party in respect of any Loss and shall subsequently actually receive Insurance Proceeds or other amounts in respect of such Loss, then such Indemnitee shall pay to such Indemnifying Party a sum equal to the amount of such Insurance Proceeds or other amounts actually received (up to but not in excess of the amount of any indemnity payment made hereunder). An insurer who would otherwise be obligated to pay any claim shall not be relieved of the responsibility with respect thereto, or, solely by virtue of the indemnification provisions hereof, have any subrogation rights with respect thereto, it being expressly understood and agreed that no insurer or any other third party shall be entitled to a "windfall" (i.e., a benefit they would not be entitled to receive in the absence of the indemnification provisions) by virtue of the indemnification provisions hereof.
Section 4.04     Procedures for Indemnification.
Procedures for Indemnification of Third Party Claims. Procedures for Indemnification of Third Party Claims shall be as follows:
(a)    If an Indemnitee shall receive notice or otherwise learn of the assertion by a person (including, without limitation, any governmental entity) who is not a party to this Agreement or to the Tax Sharing Agreement of any claim or of the commencement by any such person of any Action (a "Third Party Claim") with respect to which an Indemnifying Party may be obligated to provide indemnification pursuant to Section 4.01, 4.02 or any other Section of this Agreement, such Indemnitee shall give such Indemnifying Party written notice thereof promptly after becoming aware of such Third Party Claim; provided that the failure of any Indemnitee to give notice as provided in this Section 4.04(a) shall not relieve the related Indemnifying Party of its obligations under this Article IV, except to the extent that such Indemnifying Party is prejudiced by such failure to give notice. Such notice shall describe the Third Party Claim in reasonable detail and, if ascertainable, shall indicate the amount (estimated if necessary) of the Loss that has been or may be sustained by such Indemnitee.
(b)    An Indemnifying Party may elect to defend or to seek to settle or compromise, at such Indemnifying Party's own expense and by such Indemnifying Party's own counsel, any Third Party Claim. Within 30 days of the receipt of notice from an Indemnitee in accordance with Section 4.04(a) (or sooner, if the nature of such Third Party Claim so requires), the Indemnifying Party shall notify the Indemnitee of its election whether the Indemnifying Party will assume responsibility for defending such Third Party Claim, which election shall specify any reservations or exceptions. After notice from an Indemnifying Party to an Indemnitee of its election to assume the defense of a Third Party Claim, such Indemnifying Party shall not be liable to such Indemnitee under this Article IV for any legal or other expenses (except expenses approved in advance by the Indemnifying Party) subsequently incurred by such Indemnitee in connection with the defense thereof; provided that if the defendants in any such claim include both the Indemnifying Party and one or more Indemnitees and in any Indemnitee's reasonable judgment a conflict of interest between one or more of such Indemnitees and such Indemnifying Party exists in respect of such claim or if the Indemnifying Party shall have assumed responsibility for such claim with any reservations or exceptions, such Indemnitees shall have the right to employ separate counsel to represent such Indemnitees and in that event the reasonable fees and expenses of such separate counsel (but not more than one separate counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnifying Party) shall be paid by such Indemnifying Party. If an Indemnifying Party elects not to assume responsibility for defending a Third Party Claim, or fails to notify an Indemnitee of its election as provided in this Section 4.04(b), such Indemnitee may defend or (subject to the remainder of this Section 4.04(b)) seek to compromise or settle such Third Party Claim. Notwithstanding the foregoing, neither an Indemnifying Party nor an Indemnitee may settle or compromise any claim over the objection of the other; provided, however, that consent to settlement or compromise shall not be unreasonably withheld. Neither an Indemnifying Party nor an Indemnitee shall consent to entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement of any Third Party Claim which does not include as an unconditional term thereof the giving by the claimant or plaintiff to such Indemnitee, in the case of a consent or settlement by an Indemnifying Party, or the Indemnifying





Party, in the case of a consent or settlement by the Indemnitee, of a written release from all liability in respect to such Third Party Claim.
(c)    If an Indemnifying Party chooses to defend or to seek to compromise or settle any Third Party Claim, the related Indemnitee shall make available to such Indemnifying Party any personnel or any books, records or other documents within its control or which it otherwise has the ability to make available that are necessary or appropriate for such defense, settlement or compromise, and shall otherwise cooperate in the defense, settlement or compromise of such Third Party Claims.
(d)    Notwithstanding anything else in this Section 4.04 to the contrary, if an Indemnifying Party notifies the related Indemnitee in writing of such Indemnifying Party's desire to settle or compromise a Third Party Claim on the basis set forth in such notice (provided that such settlement or compromise includes as an unconditional term thereof the giving by the claimant or plaintiff of a written release of the Indemnitee from all liability in respect thereof) and the Indemnitee shall notify the Indemnifying Party in writing that such Indemnitee declines to accept any such settlement or compromise, such Indemnitee may continue to contest such Third Party Claim, free of any participation by such Indemnifying Party, at such Indemnitee's sole expense. In such event, the obligation of such Indemnifying Party to such Indemnitee with respect to such Third Party Claim shall be equal to (i) the costs and expenses of such Indemnitee prior to the date such Indemnifying Party notifies such Indemnitee of the offer to settle or compromise (to the extent such costs and expenses are otherwise indemnifiable hereunder) plus (ii) the lesser of (A) the amount of any offer of settlement or compromise which such Indemnitee declined to accept and (B) the actual out-of-pocket amount such Indemnitee is obligated to pay subsequent to such date as a result of such Indemnitee's continuing to pursue such Third Party Claim.
(e)    Any claim on account of a Loss which does not result from a Third Party Claim shall be asserted by written notice given by the Indemnitee to the related Indemnifying Party. Such Indemnifying Party shall have a period of 30 days after the receipt of such notice within which to respond thereto. If such Indemnifying Party does not respond within such 30 day period, such Indemnifying Party shall be deemed to have refused to accept responsibility to make payment. If such Indemnifying Party does not respond within such 30 day period or rejects such claim in whole or in part, such Indemnitee shall be free to pursue such remedies as may be available to such party under this Agreement or under applicable law.
(f)    In addition to any adjustments required pursuant to Section 4.03, if the amount of any Loss shall, at any time subsequent to the payment required by this Agreement, be reduced by recovery, settlement or otherwise, the amount of such reduction, less any expenses incurred in connection therewith, shall promptly be repaid by the Indemnitee to the Indemnifying Party.
(g)    In the event of payment by an Indemnifying Party to any Indemnitee in connection with any Third Party Claim, such Indemnifying Party shall be subrogated to and shall stand in the place of such Indemnitee as to any events or circumstances in respect of which such Indemnitee may have any right or claim relating to such Third Party Claim against any claimant or plaintiff asserting such Third Party Claim or against any other person. Such Indemnitee shall cooperate with such Indemnifying Party in a reasonable manner, and at the cost and expense of such Indemnifying Party, in prosecuting any subrogated right or claim.
Section 4.05     Remedies Cumulative. The remedies provided in this Article IV shall be cumulative and shall not preclude assertion by any Indemnitee of any other rights or the seeking of any and all other remedies against any Indemnifying Party.
Section 4.06     Survival of Indemnities. The obligations of BWC and Automotive under this Article IV shall survive the sale or other transfer by it of any assets or businesses or the assignment by it of any Liabilities, with respect to any Loss of the other related to such assets, businesses or Liabilities.

In addition, after the expiration of the applicable periods, such Information shall not be destroyed or otherwise disposed of at any time, unless, prior to such destruction or disposal, (a) the party proposing to destroy or otherwise dispose of such Information shall provide no less than 30 days' prior written notice to the other, specifying in reasonable detail the Information proposed to be destroyed or disposed of and (b) if a recipient of such notice shall request in writing prior to the scheduled date for such destruction or disposal that any of the Information proposed to be destroyed or disposed of be delivered to such requesting party, the party proposing the destruction or disposal shall promptly arrange for the delivery of such of the Information as was requested at the expense of the party requesting such Information.
Section 5.04     Confidentiality. Each of BWC and the BWC Subsidiaries on the one hand, and Automotive and the Automotive Subsidiaries on the other hand, shall hold, and shall cause its Representatives to hold, in strict confidence, all Information concerning the other in its possession or furnished by the other or the other's Representatives pursuant to either this Agreement or the Tax Sharing Agreement (except to the extent that such Information has been (a) in the public domain through no fault of such party or (b) later lawfully acquired from other sources by such party), and each party shall not release or disclose such Information to any other person, except its auditors, attorneys, financial advisors, bankers and other consultants and advisors, unless compelled to disclose by judicial or administrative process or, as advised by its counsel, by other requirements of law.
