WHEREAS, the Buyer desires to purchase from the Sellers, and the Sellers desires to sell to the Buyer, upon the terms and subject to the conditions of this Agreement, the Interests.
WHEREAS, Parent owns all of the outstanding equity interests of Buyer.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and the actual promises herein made, and in consideration of the representations, warranties, and covenants herein contained, the receipt and sufficiency of which being herein acknowledged the parties hereto agree as follows.
Section 1.Basic Transaction.
(a)    Purchase and Sale of the Interests; Deposit.
(i)    Upon the terms and subject to the conditions of this Agreement, at the Closing, the Sellers shall sell, convey, transfer, assign and deliver to the Buyer, free and clear of any and all Security Interests (other than those arising under applicable securities laws and those set forth in Section 2(a)(ii) of the Disclosure Schedule), and Buyer shall purchase and accept from the Sellers, the Interests.
(ii)    Simultaneous with the execution of this Agreement, the Buyer will deposit with the Escrow Agent $3,000,000 by wire transfer of immediately available funds (the “Deposit Escrow”), which shall be released to the Sellers or Buyer, as applicable, in accordance with the terms of the Escrow Agreement. In the event the Closing occurs, the Deposit Escrow shall be released to the Sellers (on behalf of the Buyer as Purchase Price) in accordance with, and subject to, the terms of the Escrow Agreement, and the Buyer and Sellers will execute a joint written instruction directing the Escrow Agent to release the Escrow Deposit to the Sellers on the Closing Date.







(b)    Purchase Price. The aggregate purchase price for the Interests (the “Purchase Price”) shall consist of:
(i)    an aggregate cash amount equal to the Cash Purchase Price, subject to adjustment as provided in this Section 1, payable as follows: (A) the Escrow Amount shall be deposited into an escrow account (the “Escrow Account”) for the Escrow Period, which shall be established pursuant to the Escrow Agreement (it being acknowledged by the parties that the Escrow Amount shall be distributed from the Escrow Account, absent any claim in respect thereof, as follows: one-third thereof on each twelve (12) month anniversary of the Closing Date, in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Escrow Agreement, and will be available to satisfy any amounts owed by the Sellers to the Buyer under this Agreement, including Section 1(f) and Section 5, in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and the Escrow Agreement); and (B) the balance of the Cash Purchase Price (subject to adjustment as provided in this Section 1) shall be delivered to the Sellers in accordance with Section 1(c)(ii); plus
(ii)    an aggregate number of shares of Parent Shares determined by dividing (x) $5,500,000 by (y) the trailing ten-day simple average of the closing price of the Parent Shares on the New York Stock Exchange, as quoted in the Wall Street Journal, preceding the Closing Date; minus
(iii)    the aggregate Fair Board Adjustment.
(c)    Estimated Cash Purchase Price.
(i)    At least five (5) Business Days prior to the Closing Date, the Sellers shall have delivered to the Buyer (A) an estimated Closing Statement (the “Estimated Closing Statement”), prepared in accordance with GAAP, applied in a manner consistent with the Financial Statements (so long as prepared in accordance with GAAP) and setting forth the Sellers’ estimate of the Working Capital and, based on such estimate, the cash purchase price payable at the Closing, which equals the sum of (w) the Cash Purchase Price, plus (x)the estimated Working Capital Surplus, if any, minus (y) the estimated Working Capital Deficit, if any, minus (z) any Indebtedness, in each case as of the Effective Time (the “Estimated Cash Purchase Price”) and (B) supporting documentation to compute and verify the information set forth in the Estimated Closing Statement, and (C) an allocation of the Estimated Cash Purchase Price and the Parent Shares among the Sellers (which shall be based upon their respective Pro Rata Portions) and any of their designees, together with written wire instructions for the cash payments to be made to the Sellers at the Closing. Section 1(c)(i) of the Disclosure Schedule sets forth an example of the Estimated Closing Statement, including the calculation of Working Capital.
(ii)    The Estimated Cash Purchase Price shall be paid as follows: (A) an amount equal to the Estimated Cash Purchase Price (less the Escrow Amount and Deposit Escrow) shall be paid by the Buyer to each of the Sellers, based on such Seller's Pro Rata Portion, by wire transfer of immediately available funds on the Closing Date to an account designated in writing by each respective Seller, and (B) the Escrow Amount shall be paid by the Buyer

- 2 -

(iii)    At the Closing, as directed by the Sellers on their behalf, the Buyer shall fund from the Estimated Cash Purchase Price on behalf of the Sellers such amounts necessary to allow the NAME Group to repay all Indebtedness set forth on Section 1(c)(iii) of the Disclosure Schedules. The Sellers shall arrange for such repayment and obtain all releases in connection with such repayment of any Security Interests securing such Indebtedness.
(d)    The Closing. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the sale and purchase of the Interests contemplated by this Agreement shall take place at a closing (the “Closing”) to be held remotely via the exchange of signatures on the third (3rd) Business Day following the satisfaction or waiver of all conditions to the obligations of the parties set forth in Sections 6(a), 6(b) and 6(c) (other than those conditions that can be satisfied only at the Closing); provided, however, that in the event all conditions to the obligations of the parties set forth in Sections 6(a), 6(b) and 6(c) (other than those conditions that can be satisfied only at the Closing) have been satisfied or waived prior to September 12, 2015, the Buyer shall determine the Closing Date in its sole discretion so long as on or before September 15, 2015. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Closing may take place at another date, time or place if agreed to in writing by the Sellers and the Buyer.

(e)    Section 338(h)(10) Election.
(i)    Election. No later than December 15, 2015, the Buyer may, at the Buyer’s sole discretion, deliver to the Sellers a statement (the “Section 338(h)(10) Notice”) stating the Buyer’s intention to make an election under Section 338(h)(10) of the Code (and any corresponding elections under state or local Tax law) with respect to the purchase and sale of the Interests of the Company (any such elections, collectively, the “Section 338(h)(10) Election”). If a Section 338(h)(10) Notice is delivered, the Buyer shall also deliver with such notice, the Allocation Schedule (as defined Section 1(e)(ii) below). The Buyer and the Sellers will jointly execute any and all documents in connection with the Section 338(h)(10) Election (including IRS Form 8023, Elections Under Section 338 for Corporations Making Qualified Stock Purchases) (collectively, the “Election Forms”) and to take any action as is necessary to effectuate the Section 338(h)(10) Election in accordance with this Section 1(e)(i).
(ii)    Allocation Schedule.

- 3 -



 



in the allocation schedule (the “Allocation Schedule”), which the Parties intend to be consistent with the methodology under the Treasury Regulations. For income Tax purposes, the Buyer and the Sellers shall file all Tax Returns in a manner consistent with the Allocation Schedule and shall take no position contrary thereto without the prior written consent of the other Party, unless otherwise required by a determination of a taxing authority that is final. The Sellers shall have fifteen (15) days from the delivery date of the 338(h)(10) Election Notice and Allocation Schedule to review the same and propose changes to the Allocation Schedule (which changes the Buyer shall consider in good faith).
(iii)    Election Payment. If the Section 338(h)(10) Election is made, the Buyer shall pay to each Seller such Seller's Pro Rata Portion of an amount equal to any additional Tax payable by the Sellers on the sale of the Interests in excess of the Tax that would have been incurred on the sale of the Interests had no Section 338(h)(10) Election been made (taking into account, without limitation any additional Taxes incurred as a result of the receipt of such payment) (the “Election Payment”). The Election Payment shall be paid by the Buyer to the Sellers as soon as practicable following the filing of the Election Forms but, in no event, later than April 1, 2016.
(iv)    Allocation Schedule; Calculation of Election Payment. Within sixty (60) days following receipt of the Section 338(h)(10) Election Notice, the Sellers shall prepare and deliver to the Buyer a schedule showing the Sellers' calculation of the Election Payment, accompanied by relevant computations and/or documentation supporting such calculation, all in accordance with Section 1(e)(ii) and Section 1(e)(iii). Buyer shall notify the Sellers, within fifteen (15) days after receipt thereof, of any objections to the Election Payment calculation and Buyer and Sellers will in good faith, attempt to resolve any such objections. In the event Buyer and Sellers cannot agree on the Election Payment calculation within fifteen (15) days, the dispute will be referred to the Accountants for final determination. The Accountant will be instructed to resolve the disagreement within twenty-one (21) days after the date on which they are engaged or as soon as possible thereafter and deliver to the Buyer and Sellers its determination calculation of the Election Payment. The determination of the Accountant shall be binding on the Parties. The cost of the services of the Accountant will be borne by the Party whose calculation of the matter in disagreement differs the most from the calculation as finally determined by the Accountant. If each of the Party’s calculation differs equally from the calculation as finally determined by the Accountant, then such cost will be borne one-half by the Sellers and one-half by the Buyer.
(v)    Audit. In the event that any Tax authority contest or audit results in Sellers owing Taxes in excess of the Taxes taken into account in the calculation of the Election Payment, the Election Payment shall be recalculated taking into account such additional Taxes and Buyer shall pay to Sellers an additional amount of cash so that following such additional payment, the Sellers shall have paid no Taxes in excess of the Taxes they would have paid on the sale of the Interests had no Section 338(h)(10) Election been made (taking into account, without limitation any additional Taxes incurred as a result of the receipt of such payment). Buyer shall pay by wire transfer of immediately available fund to the Sellers,

- 4 -



 



any such additional Election Payment within ten (10) days of the finalization of such audit or contest.
(f)    Post-Closing Adjustment for Working Capital and Indebtedness.
(i)    As promptly as practicable following the Closing Date, but in no event later than sixty (60) days after the Closing Date, the Buyer will prepare and deliver to the Sellers (A) a draft closing statement (the “Draft Closing Statement”), setting forth the items included in Working Capital and a computation and determination of the Working Capital, (B) a computation and determination of the Working Capital Surplus, if any, and the Working Capital Deficit, if any, (C) a computation of any Indebtedness as of the Effective Time, and (D) a computation and determination of the Final Cash Purchase Price in accordance with the provisions of this Section 1(f), in each case as of the Effective Time. The Buyer will prepare the Draft Closing Statement in accordance with GAAP, applied in a manner consistent with the Financial Statements (so long as prepared in accordance with GAAP). A sample Draft Closing Statement is attached hereto as Schedule 1(f)(i).
(ii)    If the Sellers have any objections to the Draft Closing Statement, they will jointly deliver a detailed statement describing their objections to the Buyer within thirty (30) days after delivery of the Draft Closing Statement. If the Sellers do not deliver such statement within such period, then the Draft Closing Statement shall be the Closing Statement (and the Final Cash Purchase Price set forth on the Draft Closing Statement shall be the Final Cash Purchase Price). The Buyer and the Sellers will use commercially reasonable efforts to resolve any such objections themselves. If the Parties do not obtain a final resolution within fifteen (15) days after the Buyer has received the statement of objections, the Buyer and the Sellers will engage PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP to resolve any remaining objections (the “Accountant”). The Accountant shall be jointly instructed by the Buyer and the Sellers to determine the Working Capital as of the Effective Time, the Indebtedness as of the Effective Time and the Final Cash Purchase Price. The Accountant shall deliver to each of the Buyer and the Sellers their determinations within thirty (30) days after receiving the joint instructions from the Buyer and the Sellers, and the determinations of the Accountant will be set forth in writing and will be conclusive and binding upon the Parties. The expenses of the Accountant shall be borne equally by the Sellers, on the one hand, and by the Buyer, on the other hand. The Buyer will give the Sellers the Draft Closing Statement, revised to reflect the Accountant’s determinations, which shall be the Closing Statement. The “Closing Statement” shall mean the Draft Closing Statement, together with any revisions and adjustments thereto pursuant to this Section 1(f)(ii), including a computation and determination of the Final Cash Purchase Price.

- 5 -



 



Draft Closing Statement, provided that such access shall not interfere unreasonably with the normal business operations of the NAME Group.
(iv)    In the event that the Final Cash Purchase Price is greater than the Estimated Cash Purchase Price, then Buyer shall pay to each Seller an amount equal to such Seller's Pro Rata Portion of the difference by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account designated in writing by the respective Seller within ten (10) days following the date of the final determination of the Closing Statement.
(v)    In the event that the Final Cash Purchase Price is less than the Estimated Cash Purchase Price, then the Sellers and the Buyer shall jointly instruct the Escrow Agent to transfer to the Buyer from the Escrow Account, in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Escrow Agreement, an amount equal to such difference, by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account designated in writing by the Buyer (with any amount in excess of the amount of the Escrow Account being paid by the Sellers to the Buyer by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account designated in writing by the Buyer).
(g)    Material Fair Board Contract Reimbursement. With respect to each Material Fair Board Contract with respect to which a Fair Board Adjustment was made at Closing, within ten (10) Business Days of the earlier to occur of (i) the receipt by the NAME Group of such third party consent and (ii) the occurrence of the event underlying the contract (in each case to the extent (i) or (ii) occurs within twelve (12) months of Closing), the Buyer shall pay to the Sellers by wire transfer of immediately available funds an amount equal to the Fair Board Adjustment set forth in Section 2(p) of the Disclosure Schedule set forth next to such Material Fair Board Contract under the heading “Fair Board Adjustment”.
(h)    Consent of the Sellers. Each Seller in executing this Agreement consents in its capacity as a member of the Company to the transactions contemplated hereby, and waives notice of any meeting in connection therewith.

(k)    Acknowledgement. Each of the Sellers acknowledges that a breach or threatened breach of Sections 4(i) and (j) would give rise to irreparable harm to the Buyer, for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy, and hereby agrees that in the event of a breach or a threatened breach by any such Party of any such obligations, the Buyer shall, in addition to any and all other rights and remedies that may be available to it in respect of such breach, be entitled to seek equitable relief, including a temporary restraining order, an injunction, specific performance and

any other relief that may be available from a court of competent jurisdiction (without any requirement to post bond).

In the event that any covenant contained in Sections 4(i) and (j) should ever be adjudicated to exceed the time, geographic, product or service or other limitations permitted by applicable Law in any jurisdiction, then any court is expressly empowered to reform such covenant, and such covenant shall be deemed reformed, in such jurisdiction to the maximum time, geographic, product or service or other limitations permitted by applicable Law. The covenants contained in Sections 4(i) and (j) and each provision hereof are severable and distinct covenants and provisions. The invalidity or unenforceability of any such covenant or provision as written shall not invalidate or render unenforceable the remaining covenants or provisions hereof, and any such invalidity or unenforceability in any jurisdiction shall not invalidate or render unenforceable such covenant or provision in any other jurisdiction.

Schedules absent a specific cross reference and explanation as to what the disclosure relates to)).

(viii)    All claims under this Section 5 must be made in writing on or before the applicable Indemnification Cut-Off Date (if applicable to such claim). In the event a claim has been properly made on or prior to the applicable Indemnification Cut-Off Date (if applicable to such claim) and such claim is unresolved as of the applicable Indemnification Cut-Off Date (if applicable to such claim), then the right to indemnification with respect to such claim shall remain in effect until such matter shall have been finally determined. Each claim for indemnity under this Section 5 shall state in reasonable detail all of the information then available regarding the amount and nature of such claim, the basis on which such claim is made, including the Sections of this Agreement alleged to have been breached, and shall include copies of all correspondence received from any third party in connection with any such claim.
(ix)    If an indemnified party shall receive notice of any Action (each, a “Third Party Claim”) against it which may give rise to a claim for a Loss under this Section 5, within thirty (30) days of the receipt of such notice, the indemnified party shall give the indemnifying party written notice of such Third Party Claim in accordance with Section 5(b)(iii) above; provided, however, that the failure to provide such notice shall not release the indemnifying party from any of its obligations under this Section 5 except to the extent that the indemnifying party is materially prejudiced by such failure. If the indemnifying party acknowledges in writing its obligation to indemnify the indemnified party hereunder against any Losses that may result from such Third Party Claim, then the indemnifying party shall be entitled to assume and control the defense of such Third Party Claim at its expense and through counsel of its choice if it gives notice of its intention to do so to the indemnified party within thirty (30) days of the receipt of notice from the indemnified party of such Third Party Claim; provided, however, that if there exists or is reasonably likely to exist a conflict of interest that would make it inappropriate under applicable ethical rules for the same counsel to represent both the indemnified party and the indemnifying party, then the indemnified party shall be entitled to retain its own counsel in each jurisdiction for which the indemnified party reasonably determines counsel is required, and the reasonable fees and expenses of such counsel shall be included as a Loss. In the event that the indemnifying party exercises the right to undertake any such defense against any such Third Party Claim as provided above, the indemnified party shall cooperate with the indemnifying party in such defense and make available to the indemnifying party, at the indemnifying party’s

- 38 -



 



expense, all witnesses, pertinent records, materials and information in the indemnified party’s possession or under the indemnified party’s control relating thereto as is reasonably required by the indemnifying party. Similarly, in the event the indemnified party is, directly or indirectly, conducting the defense against any such Third Party Claim, the indemnifying party shall cooperate with the indemnified party in such defense and make available to the indemnified party, at the indemnifying party’s expense, all such witnesses, records, materials and information in the indemnifying party’s possession or under the indemnifying party’s control relating thereto as is reasonably required by the indemnified party. No such Third Party Claim may be settled by the indemnifying party without the prior written consent of the indemnified party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. If the indemnifying party does not undertake the defense of such Third Party Claim or diligently pursue its defense, then the indemnified party shall have the right to undertake the defense or settlement thereof. If the indemnified party directing the defense of any such Third Party Claim proposes to settle such claim or proceeding, then the indemnified party shall give the indemnifying party prompt written notice thereof, and the indemnifying party shall have the right to participate in the settlement of such claim or proceeding at its own cost and expense. In the event the indemnified party undertakes the defense of a Third Party Claim, the adjudication or settlement of such claim shall not be determinative of whether the indemnified party is entitled to indemnity under this Section 5.
(c)    Payment of Indemnification Claims. Until such time as the Escrow Account has been fully exhausted or released, all claims by a Buyer Indemnified Party shall first be paid out of the Escrow Account. In addition to any other means of recovery available to the Buyer, including the Escrow Account, the Buyer’s claims for indemnification may be settled, at the Buyer’s option, by setting off the amount of money required to settle such indemnification claims against payments under this Agreement otherwise owed to the Sellers. All indemnification payments under this Section 5 shall be deemed adjustments to the Purchase Price. All indemnification payments hereunder shall be due and payable within ten (10) days of the date such claim is settled or such claim is adjudicated by a court of competent jurisdiction and is no longer subject to appeal. Any payments required to be made by any indemnifying party pursuant to Section 5 shall bear interest from the required payment date through the date of payment at the rate of interest publicly announced by Citi in New York, NY from time to time as its prime rate from the required payment date to the date of payment plus 2%.
(d)    Limitations. An indemnifying party shall not be liable for any claim for indemnification pursuant to Section 5(b)(i)(A) and Section 5(b)(ii)(A) until the Buyer Indemnified Party or the Seller Indemnified Party, as applicable, has suffered aggregate Losses in excess of an amount equal to $250,000, after which point an indemnifying party will be obligated to indemnify the Buyer Indemnified Party or the Seller Indemnified Party, as applicable, from and against all Losses from dollar one; provided, that the foregoing limitations shall not apply in respect of any Losses relating to inaccuracies or breaches of the Fundamental Representations. An indemnifying party shall not be liable for any claim for indemnification pursuant to Section 5(b)(i)(A) and Section 5(b)(ii)(A) in excess of the Cap, other than with respect to the Fundamental Representations in which case an indemnifying party shall not be liable for any claim for indemnification pursuant to Section 5(b)(i)(A) and Section 5(b)(ii)(A) in excess of the Purchase Price. All claims under Section

- 39 -

(ii)    The Buyer Indemnified Parties shall take commercially reasonable steps to mitigate Losses for which indemnification may be claimed by them pursuant to this Agreement upon and after becoming aware of any event that could reasonably be expected to give rise to any such Losses. In order to avoid double counting, no Buyer Indemnified Party shall be entitled to indemnification hereunder for any Loss (and the amount of any Loss incurred in respect of such breach shall not be included in the calculation of any limitations on indemnification set forth herein) to the extent that such Loss is included as a Current Liability in the calculation of the Final Cash Purchase Price in accordance with Section 1(f).

(iii)    The amount of any Loss subject to indemnification under Section 5(b) shall be calculated net of (A) any insurance proceeds received by any Buyer Indemnified Party on account of such Loss, net of the cost of recovery under the applicable insurance policy and net of any premium increase attributable to such claim, and (B) any indemnification payments received by any Buyer Indemnified Party from a third party on account of any such Loss. The Buyer Indemnified Party shall use commercially reasonable efforts to recover under all insurance policies covering any Loss to the same extent as they would if such Loss were not subject to indemnification hereunder and shall submit all claims underlying any demand for indemnity under this Section 5 to the applicable insurance carrier under each policy listed on Schedule 2(t), to the extent such claim may be made under such policy and to the extent requested to do so by the Sellers. In any case where a Buyer Indemnified Party recovers, under insurance policies or from other collateral sources, any amount in respect of a matter for which such Buyer Indemnified Party was indemnified pursuant to Section 5(b) (net of collection fees and expenses, and other related costs), such Buyer Indemnified Party shall promptly pay to the Person or Persons that actually made such indemnification payment the amount so recovered (net of collection fees and expenses, and other related
