(a)            Demand by WP.  At any time after the date hereof, WP may, subject to Section 2.11, make a written request (a “Demand Notice”) to the Company for Registration of all or part of the Registrable Securities held by WP (i) if the Company does not then qualify to use a short-form Registration on Form S-1 (a “Long-Form Registration”) or (ii) on Form S-3 (a “Short-Form Registration”) if the Company qualifies to use such short form for the Registration of such Registrable Securities on behalf of the Holders (any such requested Long-Form Registration or Short-Form Registration, a “Demand Registration”).  Each Demand Notice shall specify the kind and aggregate amount of Registrable Securities to be registered and the intended methods of disposition thereof.  Subject to Section 2.11, after delivery of such Demand Notice, the Company (x) shall file promptly (and, in any event, within (i) forty‑five (45) days in the case of a request for a Short-Form Registration or (ii) ninety (90) days in the case of a request for a Long-Form Registration, in each case, following delivery of such Demand Notice) with the SEC a Registration Statement relating to such Demand Registration (a “Demand Registration Statement”) (provided, however, that if a Demand Notice is delivered prior to the First Lockup Termination Date, the Company shall not be obligated to file (but shall be obligated to prepare) such Demand Registration Statement until fifteen (15) Business Days prior to the First Lockup Termination Date in the case of a Short-Form Registration and one hundred and twenty(120) days prior to the First Lockup Termination Date in the case of a Long‑Form Registration), and (y) shall use its reasonable best efforts to cause such Demand Registration Statement to become effective under the Securities Act promptly and to qualify under the “Blue Sky” laws of such jurisdictions as any Participating Holder or any underwriter, if any, reasonably requests.

(c)            Effective Registration.  The Company shall be deemed to have effected a Demand Registration for purposes of Section 2.11 if the Demand Registration Statement becomes effective by the SEC and remains effective until the earlier of (i) 180 days after the effective date or (ii) such time as all Registrable Securities covered by such Registration Statement have been sold or withdrawn in accordance with Section 2.01, or if such Registration Statement relates to an Underwritten Offering, such longer period as, in the opinion of counsel for the underwriter or underwriters, a Prospectus is required by law to be delivered in connection with sales of Registrable Securities by an underwriter or dealer (the applicable period, the “Demand Period”).  No Demand Registration shall be deemed to have been effected for purposes of Section 2.11 if (i) during the Demand Period such Registration or the successful completion of the relevant sale is prevented by any stop order, injunction or other order or requirement of the SEC or other governmental agency or court or (ii) the conditions to closing specified in the underwriting agreement, if any, entered into in connection with such Registration are not satisfied other than by reason of a wrongful act, misrepresentation or breach of such applicable underwriting agreement by WP.
 
(d)            Demand Company Notice.  Subject to Section 2.11, promptly upon receipt of any Demand Notice (but in no event more than five (5) Business Days thereafter), the Company shall deliver a written notice (a “Demand Company Notice”) of any such Registration request to all other Holders and the Company shall include in such Demand Registration, all such Registrable Securities of such Holders that the Company has received a written request for inclusion therein within ten (10) Business Days after such written notice is delivered, up to each such Holder’s Pro Rata Share of Registrable Securities.  All requests made pursuant to this Section 2.01(d) shall specify the kind and the aggregate amount of Registrable Securities of such Holder to be registered.
11

(e)            Delay in Filing; Suspension of Registration.  If the Company shall furnish to the Participating Holders a certificate signed by the chief executive officer, chief financial officer or chief legal officer of the Company stating that (i) the filing, initial effectiveness or continued use of a Demand Registration Statement would require the Company to make an Adverse Disclosure or (ii) the Board of Directors of the Company has determined in good faith that the Registration or sale of the Registrable Securities would be reasonably expected to materially and adversely affect a planned bona fide financing of the Company, then the Company may delay the filing (but not the preparation of) or initial effectiveness of, or suspend use of, the Demand Registration Statement (a “Demand Suspension”); provided, however, that the Company, unless otherwise approved in writing by WP, shall not be permitted to exercise aggregate Demand Suspensions and Shelf Suspensions for more than an aggregate of ninety (90) Business Days during any twelve-(12) month period; provided, further, that in the event of a Demand Suspension, such Demand Suspension shall terminate at such earlier time as the Company would no longer be required to make any Adverse Disclosure or any such planned financing has been abandoned or completed.  Each Participating Holder shall keep confidential the fact that a Demand Suspension is in effect, the certificate referred to above and its contents unless and until otherwise notified by the Company, except (A) disclosure to such Holder’s Affiliates, and its and their respective employees, agents and professional advisers who reasonably need to know such information for purposes of assisting the Holder with respect to its investment in the Company Common Stock and agree to keep it confidential, (B) disclosures to the extent required in order to comply with reporting obligations to its limited partners or other direct or indirect investors who have agreed to keep such information confidential, (C) if and to the extent such matters are disclosed by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or any other Person on a non-confidential basis without breach of any confidentiality obligations by such disclosing party, (D) disclosures that are necessary to comply with any law, rule or regulation, including formal and informal investigations or requests from any regulatory authority, (E) disclosures to potential limited partners or investors of a Holder who have agreed to keep such information confidential and (F) disclosures to potential transferees of a Holder’s Registrable Securities who have agreed to keep such information confidential.  In the case of a Demand Suspension, the Participating Holders agree to suspend use of the applicable Prospectus and any Issuer Free Writing Prospectus in connection with any sale or purchase of, or offer to sell or purchase, Registrable Securities, upon receipt of the notice referred to above.  The Company shall promptly notify the Participating Holders upon the termination of any Demand Suspension, amend or supplement the Prospectus and any Issuer Free Writing Prospectus, if necessary, so it does not contain any untrue statement or omission and furnish to the Participating Holders such numbers of copies of the Prospectus and any Issuer Free Writing Prospectus as so amended or supplemented as the Participating Holders may reasonably request.  In the event the Company shall give to the Participating Holders a certificate referred to above, the period during which the applicable Demand Registration Statement is required to be maintained effective shall be extended by the number of days during the period from and including the date of the giving of such certificate to and including the date when each seller of Registrable Securities covered by such Demand Registration Statement either receives the copies of the supplemented or amended Prospectus or Issuer Free Writing Prospectus or is advised in writing by the Company that the use of the Prospectus or Issuer Free Writing Prospectus may be resumed.
 
(f)            Amendments and Supplements to Demand Registration Statement.  The Company agrees, if necessary, to supplement or make amendments to the Demand Registration Statement if required by the registration form used by the Company for the applicable Registration or by the instructions applicable to such registration form or by the Securities Act or the rules or regulations promulgated thereunder, or as may reasonably be requested by WP.
 
(g)            Underwritten Offering.  If WP so requests, an offering of Registrable Securities pursuant to a Demand Registration shall be in the form of an Underwritten Offering, and WP shall have the right to select the managing underwriter or underwriters to administer the offering; provided that such managing underwriter or underwriters shall be reasonably acceptable to the Company.  If WP intends to sell the Registrable Securities covered by its demand by means of an Underwritten Offering, WP shall so advise the Company as part of its Demand Notice, and the Company shall include such information in the Demand Company Notice.
12

(h)            Priority of Securities Registered Pursuant to Demand Registrations.  If the managing underwriter or underwriters of a proposed Underwritten Offering of the Registrable Securities included in a Demand Registration advise the Board of Directors in writing that, in its or their opinion, the number of securities requested to be included in such Demand Registration exceeds the number that can be sold in such offering without being likely to have a significant adverse effect on the price, timing or distribution of the securities offered or the market for the securities offered, the securities to be included in such Demand Registration shall be allocated (i) first, pro rata among the Holders that have requested to participate in such Demand Registration based on the relative number of Registrable Securities then held by each such Holder; provided that any securities thereby allocated to a Holder that exceed such Holder’s request shall be reallocated among the remaining requesting Holders in a like manner; provided, further, that WP may freely re-allocate any number of Registrable Securities held by WP (or any of its Affiliates and Permitted Transferees) that may be included in such Demand Registration to any of its Affiliates (or any of their respective Permitted Transferees) for purposes of determining the pro rata allocation of the securities to be included in such Demand Registration, (ii) second, and only if all the Securities referred to in clause (i) have been included in such Registration, to the Company up to the number of securities that the Company proposes to include in such Registration that, in the opinion of the managing underwriter or underwriters, can be sold without having such adverse effect and (iii) third, and only if all of the securities referred to in clause (ii) have been included in such Registration, to those Persons holding any other securities eligible for inclusion in such Registration, up to the number of securities that in the opinion of the managing underwriter or underwriters, can be sold without having such adverse effect.  Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if the managing underwriter or underwriters of a proposed Underwritten Offering of the Registrable Securities included in a Demand Registration advise the Board of Directors in writing that, in its or their opinion, the participation in such Demand Registration by any or all of the investors listed in Schedule A hereto would be likely to have a significant adverse effect on the price, timing or distribution of the securities offered or the market for the securities offered, then Registrable Securities held by such investor or investors listed in Schedule A shall not be eligible for inclusion in such Demand Registration.
 
(i)            In the event any Holder requests to participate in a registration pursuant to this Section 2.01 in connection with a distribution of Registrable Securities to its shareholders, partners or members, the Registration Statement shall provide for resale by such shareholders, partners or members, if requested by the Holder.
13

SECTION 2.02.    Shelf Registration.
 
(a)            Filing.  If the Company qualifies to file with the SEC a Shelf Registration Statement, upon written request by WP the Company shall file promptly following such request (and in any event, within thirty (30) days thereof or, in the event the filing is required to be made on Form S-1, within sixty (60) days thereof), but not earlier than thirty (30) days (or, in the event of a filing on Form S-1, sixty (60) days) prior to the First Lockup Termination Date, a Shelf Registration Statement (which shall be an automatic Shelf Registration Statement if the Company qualifies at such time to file such a Shelf Registration Statement), relating to the offer and sale of all Registrable Securities held by WP, and, in each case from time to time in accordance with the methods of distribution elected by the Holders from time to time (to the extent permitted in this Section 2.02) and (y) shall use its reasonable best efforts to cause such Shelf Registration Statement to become effective under the Securities Act promptly.  At least twenty (20) days prior to filing any such Shelf Registration Statement, the Company shall deliver a written notice (a “Shelf Company Notice”) to each Holder requesting any necessary information for inclusion in such Shelf Registration Statement, including the methods of distribution to be elected by each such Holder, and the Company shall include in such Shelf Registration all such Registrable Securities of each such Holder, up to such Holder’s Pro Rata Share of Registrable Securities, which the Company has received a written request for inclusion therein within five (5) Business Days after such written notice is delivered to such Holder.
 
(b)            Continued Effectiveness.  The Company shall use its reasonable best efforts to keep any Shelf Registration Statement filed pursuant to Section 2.02(a) continuously effective under the Securities Act in order to permit the Prospectus forming a part thereof to be usable in connection with any Shelf Take-Down, subject to Section 2.02(c), until the earliest of (i) the date as of which all Registrable Securities have been sold pursuant to the Shelf Registration Statement or another Registration Statement filed under the Securities Act (but in no event prior to the applicable period referred to in Section 4(3) of the Securities Act and Rule 174 thereunder), (ii) the date as of which there are no longer any Registrable Securities covered by the Shelf Registration Statement and (iii) such shorter period as the Holders shall agree in writing (such period of effectiveness, the “Shelf Period”).  Subject to Section 2.02(c), the Company shall not be deemed to have used its reasonable best efforts to keep the Shelf Registration Statement effective during the Shelf Period if the Company voluntarily takes any action or omits to take any action, without the consent of WP that would result in any Holder not being able to offer and sell Registrable Securities pursuant to such Shelf Registration Statement during the Shelf Period, unless such action or omission is (x) a Shelf Suspension permitted pursuant to Section 2.02(c) or (y) required by applicable law, rule or regulation.
14

(c)            Suspension of Registration.  If the Company shall furnish to the Participating Holders a certificate signed by the chief executive officer, chief financial officer or chief legal officer of the Company stating that (i) the filing, amendment or continued use of a Shelf Registration Statement would require the Company to make an Adverse Disclosure or (ii) the Board of Directors of the Company has determined in good faith that the Registration or sale of the Registrable Securities would be reasonably expected to materially and adversely affect a planned bona fide financing of the Company, then the Company may suspend use of the Shelf Registration Statement (a “Shelf Suspension”); provided, however, that the Company, unless otherwise approved in writing by WP, shall not be permitted to exercise aggregate Demand Suspensions and Shelf Suspensions for more than an aggregate of ninety (90) Business Days during any twelve-(12) month period; provided, further, that in the event of a Shelf Suspension, such Shelf Suspension shall terminate at such earlier time as the Company would no longer be required to make any Adverse Disclosure or any such planned financing is abandoned or completed.  Each Participating Holder shall keep confidential the fact that a Shelf Suspension is in effect, the certificate referred to above and its contents unless and until otherwise notified by the Company, except (A) for disclosure to such Holder’s Affiliates, and its and their respective employees, agents and professional advisers who reasonably need to know such information for purposes of assisting such Holder with respect to its investment in the Company Common Stock and agree to keep it confidential, (B) for disclosures to the extent required in order to comply with reporting obligations to its limited partners or other direct or indirect investors who have agreed to keep such information confidential, (C) if and to the extent such matters are disclosed by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries or any other Person on a non-confidential basis without breach of any confidentiality obligations by such disclosing party, (D) for disclosures that are necessary to comply with any law, rule or regulation, including formal and informal investigations or requests from any regulatory authority, (E) for disclosures to potential limited partners or investors of such Holder who have agreed to keep such information confidential and (F) for disclosures to potential transferees of such Holder’s Registrable Securities who have agreed to keep such information confidential.  In the case of a Shelf Suspension, the Participating Holders agree to suspend use of the applicable Prospectus and any Issuer Free Writing Prospectus in connection with any sale or purchase of, or offer to sell or purchase, Registrable Securities, upon receipt of the notice referred to above.  The Company shall promptly notify the Participating Holders upon the termination of any Shelf Suspension, amend or supplement the Prospectus and any Issuer Free Writing Prospectus, if necessary, so it does not contain any untrue statement or omission and furnish to the Participating Holders such numbers of copies of the Prospectus and any Issuer Free Writing Prospectus as so amended or supplemented as each such Holder may reasonably request.  The Company agrees, if necessary, to supplement or make amendments to the Shelf Registration Statement if required by the registration form used by the Company for the applicable Registration or by the instructions applicable to such registration form or by the Securities Act or the rules or regulations promulgated thereunder, or as may reasonably be requested by any Participating Holder.
 
(d)            Shelf Take-Downs.
 
(i)     If at any time that a Shelf Registration Statement covering Registrable Securities pursuant to this Section 2.02 is effective, WP delivers a written notice to the Company (a “Shelf Take-Down Notice”) stating that it intends to effect an offering (a “Shelf Take-Down”) of all or a portion of its Registrable Securities included on the Shelf Registration Statement and stating the number of Registrable Securities to be included in such Shelf Take-Down, then the Company shall amend or supplement the Shelf Registration Statement and take such other action as may be reasonably necessary to facilitate the sale of such Registrable Securities pursuant to such Shelf Take-Down. Except as set forth in Section 2.02(d)(iii) with respect to Marketed Underwritten Shelf Take-Downs, WP shall not be required to permit the offer and sale of Registrable Securities by other Participating Holders, and no other Holder shall be entitled to offer or sell any Registrable Securities, in connection with any such Shelf Take-Down initiated by WP.
 
(ii)     Subject to Section 2.11(c), if WP elects by written request to the Company, a Shelf Take-Down shall be in the form of an Underwritten Offering (each, an “Underwritten Shelf Take-Down”) (such written request, an “Underwritten Shelf Take-Down Notice”) and the Company shall amend or supplement the Shelf Registration Statement for such purpose as soon as practicable. WP shall have the right to select the managing underwriter or underwriters to administer such offering; provided that such managing underwriter or underwriters shall be reasonably acceptable to the Company.
15

(iii)            If the plan of distribution set forth in any Underwritten Shelf Take-Down Notice includes a customary “road show” (including an “electronic road show”) or other substantial marketing effort by the Company and the underwriters over a period expected to exceed forty-eight (48) hours (a “Marketed Underwritten Shelf Take‑Down”), promptly upon delivery of such Underwritten Shelf Take-Down Notice (but in no event more than three (3) Business Days thereafter), the Company shall promptly deliver a written notice (a “Marketed Underwritten Shelf Take-Down Notice”) of such Marketed Underwritten Shelf Take-Down to all other Holders, and the Company shall include in such Marketed Underwritten Shelf Take-Down up to such Participating Holder’s Pro Rata Share of Registrable Securities for which the Company has received written requests, which requests must specify the aggregate amount of such Registrable Securities of such Holder to be offered and sold pursuant to such Marketed Underwritten Shelf Take-Down, for inclusion therein within three (3) Business Days after the date that such Marketed Underwritten Shelf Take-Down Notice has been delivered.
 
(iv)            The provisions of Section 2.01(h) shall apply to any Marketed Underwritten Offering pursuant to Section 2.02(d)(iii) notwithstanding that Section 2.01(h) refers to Demand Registrations.
 
(e)         If the Company files any Shelf Registration Statement after the date hereof, the Company agrees that it shall include in such Shelf Registration Statement such disclosures as may be required by Rule 430B under the Securities Act (referring to the unnamed selling security holders in a generic manner by identifying the initial offering of the securities to the Holders) in order to ensure that the Holders may be added to such Shelf Registration Statement at a later time through the filing of a prospectus supplement rather than a post‑effective amendment

SECTION 2.03.    Piggyback Registration.
 
(a)            Participation.  On or after the First Lockup Termination Date, if the Company at any time proposes to file a registration statement with respect to any offering of its equity securities for its own account or for the account of any other Persons (other than (i) a Registration under Section 2.01 or Section 2.02, it being understood that this clause (i) does not limit the rights of Holders to make written requests pursuant to Section 2.01 or Section 2.02 or the right of the Holders to request that their Registrable Securities be included in any Registration under Section 2.01 or Section 2.02 or otherwise limit the applicability thereof, (ii) any Special Registration, (iii) a registration of securities solely relating to an offering and sale to employees, directors or consultants of the Company or its Subsidiaries pursuant to any employee stock plan or other employee benefit plan arrangement, (iv) a registration not otherwise covered by clause (ii) above pursuant to which the Company is offering to exchange its own securities for other securities or (v) a Registration Statement relating solely to dividend reinvestment or similar plans) (a “Company Public Sale”), then, (A) as soon as practicable (but in no event less than twenty (20) days prior to the proposed date of filing of such Registration Statement), the Company shall give written notice of such proposed filing to WP, and such notice shall offer WP the opportunity to Register under such Registration Statement such number of Registrable Securities as WP may request in writing delivered to the Company within ten (10) days of delivery of such written notice by the Company, and (B), as soon as practicable after the expiration of such ten (10)–day period (but in no event less than eight (8) days prior to the proposed date of filing of such Registration Statement), the Company shall give written notice (a “Piggyback Company Notice”) of such proposed filing to the Holders (other than WP), and such notice shall offer each such Holder the opportunity to Register under such Registration Statement such number of Registrable Securities as such Holder may request in writing within five (5) days of delivery of such written notice by the Company up to such Holder’s Pro Rata Share of Registrable Securities.  Subject to Section 2.03(b), the Company shall include in such Registration Statement all such Registrable Securities that are requested by Holders to be included therein in compliance with the immediately foregoing sentence (a “Piggyback Registration”); provided that if at any time after giving written notice of its intention to Register any equity securities and prior to the effective date of the Registration Statement filed in connection with such Piggyback Registration, the Company shall determine for any reason not to Register or to delay Registration of the equity securities covered by such Piggyback Registration, the Company shall give written notice of such determination to each Holder that had requested to Register its, his or her Registrable Securities in such Registration Statement, and, thereupon, (1) in the case of a determination not to Register, shall be relieved of its obligation to Register any Registrable Securities in connection with such Registration (but not from its obligation to pay the Registration Expenses in connection therewith), without prejudice, however, to the rights of WP to request that such Registration be effected as a Demand Registration under Section 2.01, and (2) in the case of a determination to delay Registering, in the absence of a request for a Demand Registration pursuant to Section 2.01, shall be permitted to delay Registering any Registrable Securities, for the same period as the delay in Registering the other equity securities covered by such Piggyback Registration.  If any offering pursuant to such Registration Statement is to be underwritten, the Company shall so advise the Participating Holders as a part of the written notice given pursuant this Section 2.03(a), and each Holder making a request for a Piggyback Registration pursuant to this Section 2.03(a) may, and the Company shall make such arrangements with the managing underwriter or underwriters so that each such Holder may, participate in such Underwritten Offering, subject to the conditions of Section 2.03(b).  If any offering pursuant to such Registration Statement is to be on any other basis, the Company shall so advise the Holders as part of the written notice given pursuant to this Section 2.03(a), and each Holder making a request for a Piggyback Registration pursuant to this Section 2.03(a) may, and the Company shall make such arrangements so that each such Holder may, participate in such offering on such basis, subject to the conditions of Section 2.03(b).  Each Holder shall be permitted to withdraw all or part of its Registrable Securities from a Piggyback Registration by written notice to the Company at any time prior to the date of the preliminary prospectus.
17

 
(b)            Priority of Piggyback Registration.  If the managing underwriter or underwriters of any proposed Underwritten Offering of Registrable Securities included in a Piggyback Registration informs the Company and the Holders that have requested to participate in such Piggyback Registration in writing that, in its or their opinion, the number of securities which the Company, such Holders and any other Persons intend to include in such offering exceeds the number that can be sold in such offering without being likely to have a significant adverse effect on the price, timing or distribution of the securities offered or the market for the securities offered, then the securities to be included in such Registration shall be (i) first, 100% of the securities that the Company or (subject to Section 2.07) any Person (other than a Holder) exercising a contractual right to demand Registration, as the case may be, proposes to sell, and (ii) second, and only if all the securities referred to in clause (i) have been included, the number of Registrable Securities that, in the opinion of such managing underwriter or underwriters, can be sold without having such adverse effect in such Registration, with such number to be allocated pro rata among such Holders that have requested to participate in such Registration based on the relative number of Registrable Securities then held by each such Holder; provided that any securities thereby allocated to a Holder that exceed such Holder’s request shall be reallocated among the remaining requesting Holders in like manner; provided, further, that WP may freely re‑allocate any number of Registrable Securities held by WP (or any of its Affiliates and Permitted Transferees) that may be included in such Registration to any of its Affiliates (or any of their respective Permitted Transferees) for purposes of determining the pro rata allocation of the securities to be included in such Registration and (iii) third, and only if all of the Registrable Securities referred to in clause (ii) have been included in such Registration, the number of any other securities eligible for inclusion in such Registration that, in the opinion of the managing underwriter or underwriters, can be sold without having such adverse effect in such Registration.  Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if the managing underwriter or underwriters of a proposed Underwritten Offering of the Registrable Securities included in a Piggyback Registration advise the Board of Directors in writing that, in its or their opinion, the participation in such Piggyback Registration by any or all of the investors listed in Schedule A hereto would be likely to have a significant adverse effect on the price, timing or distribution of the securities offered or the market for the securities offered, then Registrable Securities held by such investor or investors listed in Schedule A shall not be eligible for inclusion in such Piggyback Registration.
 
(c)            No Effect on Demand Registrations.  No Registration of Registrable Securities effected pursuant to a request under this Section 2.03 shall be deemed to have been effected pursuant to Section 2.01 or Section 2.02 or shall relieve the Company of its obligations under Section 2.01 or Section 2.02.
 
SECTION 2.04    Black-out Periods.
 
(a)            Black-out Periods for Holders.  In the event of any Company Public Sale of the Company’s equity securities in an Underwritten Offering, each of the Holders agree, if requested by the managing underwriter or underwriters in such Underwritten Offering (and only if WP agrees to such request), not to (1) offer for sale, sell, pledge, or otherwise dispose of (or enter into any transaction or device that is designed to, or could be expected to, result in the disposition by any Person at any time in the future of) any Company Common Stock (including Company Common Stock that may be deemed to be beneficially owned by the undersigned in accordance with the rules and regulations of the SEC and Company Common Stock that may be issued upon exercise of any options or warrants) or securities convertible into or exercisable or exchangeable for Company Common Stock, (2) enter into any swap or other derivatives transaction that transfers to another, in whole or in part, any of the economic benefits or risks of ownership of Company Common Stock, whether any such transaction described in clause (1) or (2) above is to be settled by delivery of Company Common Stock or other securities, in cash or otherwise, (3) make any demand for or exercise any right or cause to be filed a Registration Statement, including any amendments thereto, with respect to the registration of any Company Common Stock or securities convertible into or exercisable or exchangeable for Company Common Stock or any other securities of the Company unless such Holder agrees that such Registration Statement or amendment thereto need not be filed until the expiration of the period described in this Section 2.04 or (4) publicly disclose the intention to do any of the foregoing, in each case, during the period beginning seven (7) days before, and ending thirty (30) days (or, in each case, such longer period up to sixty (60) days as may be requested by the applicable managing underwriter or underwriters) (or, in each case, such other period as may be reasonably requested by the Company or the managing underwriter or underwriters to accommodate regulatory restrictions on (i) the publication or other distribution of research reports and (ii) analyst recommendations and opinions, including, but not limited to, the restrictions contained in the FINRA rules or any successor provisions or amendments thereto) after the date of the underwriting agreement entered into in connection with such Company Public Sale, to the extent timely notified in writing by the Company or the managing underwriter or underwriters.  Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, each Holder who is an investor listed in Schedule A hereto acknowledges and agrees that he/she may be subject to a black out period of a longer duration than that applicable to WP.  If requested by the managing underwriter or underwriters of any such Company Public Sale (and only if WP agrees to such request), each Holder shall execute a separate agreement to the foregoing effect.  The Company may impose stop-transfer instructions with respect to the Company Common Stock (or other securities) subject to the foregoing restriction until the end of the period referenced above.

(c)            Conduct of Indemnification Proceedings.  Any Person entitled to indemnification under this Section 2.09 shall (i) give prompt written notice to the indemnifying party of any claim with respect to which it seeks indemnification (provided that any delay or failure to so notify the indemnifying party shall relieve the indemnifying party of its obligations hereunder only to the extent, if at all, that it is actually and materially prejudiced by reason of such delay or failure) and (ii) permit such indemnifying party to assume the defense of such claim with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the indemnified party; provided that any Person entitled to indemnification hereunder shall have the right to select and employ separate counsel and to participate in the defense of such claim, but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be at the expense of such Person unless (A) the indemnifying party has agreed in writing to pay such fees or expenses, (B) the indemnifying party shall have failed to assume the defense of such claim within a reasonable time after delivery of notice of such claim from the Person entitled to indemnification hereunder and employ counsel reasonably satisfactory to such Person, (C) the indemnified party has reasonably concluded (based upon advice of its counsel) that there may be legal defenses available to it or other indemnified parties that are different from or in addition to those available to the indemnifying party, (D) in the reasonable judgment of any such Person (based upon advice of its counsel) a conflict of interest may exist between such Person and the indemnifying party with respect to such claims (in which case, if the Person notifies the indemnifying party in writing that such Person elects to employ separate counsel at the expense of the indemnifying party, the indemnifying party shall not have the right to assume the defense of such claim on behalf of such Person) or (E) the indemnified person is WP.  If the indemnifying party assumes the defense, the indemnifying party shall not have the right to settle such action, consent to entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement, in each case without the prior written consent of the indemnified party, unless the entry of such judgment or settlement (i) includes as an unconditional term thereof the giving by the claimant or plaintiff to such indemnified party of an unconditional release from all liability in respect to such claim or litigation and (ii) does not include a statement as to or an admission of fault, culpability or a failure to act by or on behalf of such indemnified party, and provided that any sums payable in connection with such settlement are paid in full by the indemnifying party.  If such defense is not assumed by the indemnifying party, the indemnifying party will not be subject to any liability for any settlement made without its prior written consent, but such consent may not be unreasonably withheld.  It is understood that the indemnifying party or parties shall not, except as specifically set forth in this Section 2.09(c), in connection with any proceeding or related proceedings in the same jurisdiction, be liable for the reasonable fees, disbursements or other charges of more than one separate firm admitted to practice in such jurisdiction at any one time unless (x) the employment of more than one counsel has been authorized in writing by the indemnifying party or parties, (y) an indemnified party has reasonably concluded (based on the advice of counsel) that there may be legal defenses available to it that are different from or in addition to those available to the other indemnified parties or (z) a conflict or potential conflict exists or may exist (based upon advice of counsel to an indemnified party) between such indemnified party and the other indemnified parties, in each of which cases the indemnifying party shall be obligated to pay the reasonable fees and expenses of such additional counsel or counsels.
32

(d)            Contribution.  If for any reason the indemnification provided for in paragraphs (a) and (b) of this Section 2.09 is unavailable to an indemnified party or insufficient in respect of any Losses referred to therein, then the indemnifying party shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by the indemnified party as a result of such Loss in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the indemnifying party on the one hand and the indemnified party or parties on the other hand in connection with the acts, statements or omissions that resulted in such losses, as well as any other relevant equitable considerations.  In connection with any Registration Statement filed with the SEC by the Company, the relative fault of the indemnifying party on the one hand and the indemnified party on the other hand shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether any untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or the omission or alleged omission to state a material fact relates to information supplied by the indemnifying party or by the indemnified party and the parties’ relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such statement or omission.  The parties hereto agree that it would not be just or equitable if contribution pursuant to this Section 2.09(d) were determined by pro rata allocation or by any other method of allocation that does not take account of the equitable considerations referred to in this Section 2.09(d).  No Person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Securities Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any Person who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation.  The amount paid or payable by an indemnified party as a result of the Losses referred to in Section 2.09(a) and Section 2.09(b) shall be deemed to include, subject to the limitations set forth above, any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by such indemnified party in connection with investigating or defending any such action or claim.  Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section 2.09(d), in connection with any Registration Statement filed by the Company, a Participating Holder shall not be required to contribute any amount in excess of the dollar amount of the net proceeds (i.e., gross proceeds less underwriting discounts and commissions) received by such Holder under the sale of Registrable Securities giving rise to such contribution obligation less any amount paid by such Holders pursuant to Section 2.09(b).  If indemnification is available under this Section 2.09, the indemnifying parties shall indemnify each indemnified party to the full extent provided in Section 2.09(a) and Section 2.09(b) hereof without regard to the provisions of this Section 2.09(d).
 
(e)            No Exclusivity.  The remedies provided for in this Section 2.09 are not exclusive and shall not limit any rights or remedies that may be available to any indemnified party at law or in equity or pursuant to any other agreement.
 
(f)            Survival.  The indemnities provided in this Section 2.09 shall survive the transfer of any Registrable Securities by such Holder.
 
SECTION 2.10.    Rules 144 and 144A and Regulation S; Form S-3.  The Company covenants that it will file the reports required to be filed by it under the Securities Act and the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations adopted by the SEC thereunder (or, if the Company is not required to file such reports, it will, upon the reasonable request of a Holder, make publicly available such necessary information for so long as necessary to permit sales pursuant to Rules 144 or 144A or Regulation S under the Securities Act), and it will take such further action as (x) the Holders may reasonably request, all to the extent required from time to time to enable the Holders, to sell Registrable Securities without Registration under the Securities Act within the limitation of the exemptions provided by (i) Rules 144 or 144A or Regulation S under the Securities Act, as such Rules may be amended from time to time, or (ii) any similar rule or regulation hereafter adopted by the SEC; or (y) is necessary to qualify the Company to file registration statements on Form S-3.  Upon the reasonable request of a Holder, the Company will deliver to such Holder a written statement as to whether it has complied with such requirements and, if not, the specifics thereof in reasonable detail.
33

SECTION 2.11.    Limitation on Registrations and Underwritten Offerings.
 
(a)            Notwithstanding the rights and obligations set forth in Section 2.01 and Section 2.02, in no event shall the Company be obligated to take any action to effect any Demand Registration or any Underwritten Shelf Take‑Down at the request of WP after the Company has effected five (5) Registrations that are Demand Registrations or Underwritten Shelf Take-Downs at the request of WP.
 
(b)            Subject to Section 2.11(c), there shall be no limit on the number of Shelf Take-Downs that the Company shall be required to effect at the request of WP.
 
(c)            Notwithstanding the rights and obligations set forth in Section 2.01 and Section 2.02, in no event shall the Company be obligated to take any action to (i) effect more than one (1) Marketed Underwritten Offering in any consecutive ninety-(90) day period or (ii) effect any Underwritten Offering unless WP proposes to sell all of its Registrable Securities in such Underwritten Offering or, if selling less than all of the Registrable Securities held by WP, having reasonably anticipated net aggregate proceeds (after deduction of underwriter commissions and offering expenses) of at least $50,000,000.
 
SECTION 2.12    Clear Market.  With respect to any Underwritten Offerings of Registrable Securities effected at the request of WP pursuant to a Registration under Section 2.01 or Section 2.02 (each a “Holder Underwritten Offering”), the Company agrees not to effect (other than pursuant to the Registration applicable to such Holder Underwritten Offering or pursuant to a Special Registration) any public sale or distribution, or to file any Registration Statement (other than pursuant to the Registration applicable to such Holder Underwritten Offering or pursuant to a Special Registration) covering any of its equity securities or any securities convertible into or exchangeable or exercisable for such securities, during the period not to exceed seven (7) days prior and thirty (30) days following the effective date of such offering or such longer period up to sixty (60) days as may be requested by the managing underwriter for such Holder Underwritten Offering.  “Special Registration” means the registration of (A) equity securities and/or options or other rights in respect thereof solely registered on Form S-4 or S-8 (or successor form) or (B) shares of equity securities and/or options or other rights in respect thereof to be offered to directors, employees, consultants, customers, lenders or vendors of the Company or its Subsidiaries or in connection with dividend reinvestment plans.
 
SECTION 2.13.    In-Kind Distributions.  If any Holder seeks to effectuate an in-kind distribution of all or part of its Company Common Stock to its direct or indirect equityholders, subject to any applicable lock-up period set forth in Section 3.01 the Company will reasonably cooperate with and assist such Holder, such equityholders and the Company’s transfer agent to facilitate such in-kind distribution in the manner reasonably requested by such Holder (including the delivery of instruction letters by the Company or its counsel to the Company’s transfer agent and the delivery of Company Common Stock without restrictive legends, to the extent no longer applicable).
