This proxy and power of attorney is given to secure the performance of the duties of Stockholder under this Agreement. Stockholder shall take such further action or execute such other instruments as may be necessary to effectuate the intent of this proxy. This proxy and power of attorney granted by Stockholder shall be irrevocable during the term of this Agreement, shall be deemed to be coupled with an interest sufficient in law to support an irrevocable proxy and shall revoke any and all prior proxies granted by Stockholder with respect to the Shares.

(Transfer) any of the Shares or enter into any contract, option or other agreement with respect to, or consent to, a Transfer of, any of the Shares or Stockholders voting or economic interest therein. Any attempted Transfer of Shares or any interest therein in violation of this Section 5 shall be null and void. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, this Section 5 shall not prohibit a Transfer of the Shares by Stockholder (a) if Stockholder is a natural person, to any person who is a family member of Stockholder (as the term family member is defined by Form S-8 promulgated under the Securities Act (or any successor or comparable form)) or upon the death of Stockholder, (b) pursuant to any written trading plan in effect on the date of this Agreement intended to satisfy the requirements of Rule 10b5-1 under the Exchange Act, (c) to an Affiliate of Stockholder, or (d) after the record date for determining the stockholders eligible to vote at the Buyer Meeting, as set forth in the Joint Proxy Statement/Prospectus; provided, that a Transfer referred to in clauses (a) and (c) of this sentence shall be permitted only if, as a precondition to such Transfer, the transferee agrees in writing to be bound by all of the terms of this Agreement.

|8.||No Agreement as Director or Officer.|
This Agreement is being entered into by Stockholder solely in Stockholders capacity as the beneficial and record owner of the Shares. Stockholder makes no agreement or understanding in this Agreement in Stockholders capacity as a director or officer of the Buyer or any of its subsidiaries (if Stockholder holds such office), and nothing in this Agreement: (a) will limit or affect any actions or omissions taken by Stockholder in stockholders capacity as such a director or officer, including in exercising rights under the Merger Agreement, and no such actions or omissions shall be deemed a breach of this Agreement or (b) will be construed to prohibit, limit or restrict Stockholder from exercising Stockholders fiduciary duties as an officer or director to the Buyer or its stockholders.
Each party hereto acknowledges that it will be impossible to measure in money the damage to the non-breaching party if a party hereto fails to comply with any of the obligations imposed by this Agreement, that every such obligation is material and that, in the event of any such failure, the non-breaching party will not have an adequate remedy at law or damages. Accordingly, each party hereto agrees that the parties hereto shall be entitled to seek the remedy of specific performance of the terms hereof, in addition to any other remedy at law or in equity.

This Agreement may not be amended or supplemented, and no provisions hereof may be modified or waived, except by an instrument in writing signed by both parties hereto. No waiver of any provision hereof by either party shall be deemed a waiver of any other provision hereof by such party, nor shall any such waiver be deemed a continuing waiver of any provision hereof by such party.

In the event such court does not exercise the power granted to it in the prior sentence, the parties hereto agree to replace such invalid or unenforceable term or provision with a valid and enforceable term or provision that will achieve, to the extent possible, the economic, business and other purposes of such invalid or unenforceable term.
