If First Honest exercises the First Honest Option, First Honest shall provide an Exercise Notice of such exercise to RSH.
 
12.6  
If First Honest does not exercise the First Honest Option within 30 days from the date of the automatic lapse of the RSH Option or RSH does not serve an irrevocable notice in writing on First Honest to purchase First Honest’s Shares pursuant to clause 12.5 within 30 days from the date of First Honest’s Exercise Notice, this agreement shall terminate and JVC shall be liquidated in accordance with clause 17, unless First Honest and RSH mutually agree otherwise in writing.

14.  
TRANSFER FOLLOWING OBLIGATORY TRANSFER EVENT
 
14.1  
Where an Obligatory Transfer Event occurs to RSH or First Honest, such party shall give notice of such Obligatory Transfer Event to the other party as soon as practicable and, if it does not, it is deemed to have given notice of the Obligatory Transfer Event on the date on which the other party becomes aware of such Obligatory Transfer Event.
 
14.2  
The party receiving notice of an Obligatory Transfer Event (in this clause the Buyer) has the right, within 30 days of receiving the notice (the first day is the day after the day on which it received the notice), to offer to buy all the Shares of the other party (in this clause the Seller) in JVC (Relevant Shares) at a price for cash specified by the Buyer and not on deferred terms and also upon and subject to such normal commercial terms and conditions as the Buyer and the Seller may negotiate and agree in good faith (Offer).
 
14.3  
The Seller has a period of 30 days (Share Pricing Period) of receiving the Offer (the first day is the day after the day of the Offer) within which to:
 
 
(a)
accept the price offered for the Relevant Shares by the Buyer; or
 
 
(b)
request that a Fair Value for the Relevant Shares be determined by the Expert,
 
 
and the Seller is deemed to have accepted the Offer at the price stated by the Buyer in its Offer under clause 14.2 if it does not expressly accept or request a Fair Value determination by the end of the Share Pricing Period.
 
14.4  
The price for the Relevant Shares shall be:
 
 
(a)
the price offered by the Buyer if, at the expiry of the Share Pricing Period, the Seller has:
 
 
(i)
accepted that price; or
 
 
(ii)
neither accepted that price nor requested the determination of a Fair Value by the Expert; or
 
 
(b)
the Fair Value determined by the Expert, if the Seller requests such a determination before the expiry of the Share Pricing Period.

14.6  
Acceptance or deemed acceptance under clause 14.3 or the service of a notice to buy under clause 14.5 shall bind the parties to buy and sell the Relevant Shares, as the case may be, in accordance with clause 18.
 
 
 
27

 
 
 
14.7  
In this clause 14, the Fair Value of the Shares to be sold shall be the value that the Expert certifies to be the fair market value in his opinion based on the following assumptions:
 
 
(a)
the value of the Shares in question is that proportion of the fair market value of the entire issued share capital of JVC that such Shares bear to the then total issued share capital of JVC (with no premium or discount for the size of the relevant seller's Shareholding or for the rights or restrictions applying to such Shares under this agreement or the Articles);
 
 
(b)
the sale is between a willing buyer and a willing seller on the open market;
 
 
(c)
the sale is taking place on the date that the Obligatory Transfer Event occurred;
 
 
(d)
if JVC is then carrying on its Business as a going concern, it shall continue to do so;
 
 
(e)
such Shares are sold free of all Encumbrances; and
 
 
(f)
taking into account any other factors (including the value of the JVC Brand) that the Expert reasonably believes should be taken into account.
 
14.8  
The Expert shall have the discretion to resolve any issues arising from the application of such assumptions in his absolute discretion.
 
 
15.

15.2  
First Honest and RSH shall endeavour to agree on the appointment of an independent Expert.
 
15.3

28

 
 
 
15.5  
If the Expert dies or becomes unwilling or incapable of acting, or does not deliver such determination within the time required by this clause 15, then:
 
 
(a)
First Honest and RSH shall forthwith instruct the two suggested experts referred to in clause 15.3 to jointly recommend and notify such parties as soon as reasonably practicable of another Expert, and First Honest and RSH shall then discharge the then appointment of the Expert and appoint a replacement Expert as soon as reasonably practicable after their receipt of such recommendation; and
