If the Sellers deliver an Election Notice, each Seller shall promptly furnish to Newco in writing such information regarding it and its Newco Shares as Newco may from time to time reasonably request to complete or amend the information required by such Registration Statement (including, without limitation, information regarding such Seller's ownership of Newco Shares), shall promptly execute and deliver, or cause to be executed and delivered, customary agreements and take such other actions as Newco or an underwriter reasonably requests in connection with the IPO, including, without limitation, (i) the execution and delivery of any underwriting agreement, power of attorney, custody agreement, stock power or medallion guarantee, (ii) the delivery of a reasonable and customary opinion of counsel and officers' certificate to the underwriters with respect to any Newco Shares to be sold in the IPO by the Sellers and (iii) the execution and delivery of an agreement restricting the Transfer (as such term is defined in the Stockholders Agreement) of any Newco Shares owned by the Sellers as may be required by underwriters to facilitate the marketing of the securities in the IPO (so long as such restrictions on Transfer are no greater than the restrictions contained in a similar agreement with the underwriters with respect to the Newco Shares of the Fortress Entity (as such term is defined in the Stockholders Agreement). Each of the Sellers hereby elects to sell as a "selling stockholder" all of the Newco Shares received or to be received by it in a Reorganization Transaction in the IPO, and this sentence shall be deemed to be an Election Notice under this Section 4.1(a) for purposes of the IPO; provided, however, that this election shall be effective only if the IPO is completed on or before December 31, 2005. If the IPO is not completed on or before December 31, 2005, then the Sellers' rights to elect to sell Newco Shares under this Section 4.1(b) shall be reinstated and Newco shall be required to deliver an Election Date Notice to the Sellers with respect to and IPO thereafter.

As used herein, "Affiliate" shall have the meaning set forth in Rule 12b-2 promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended; provided that no person shall be deemed an Affiliate of any other person solely by reason of any investment in Newco . Section 4.2 Indemnification. (a)(i) Newco shall indemnify and hold harmless, to the fullest extent permitted by law, each Seller, its officers, directors, employees, managers, partners and agents and each person who controls (within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act and Section 20 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act")) such Seller or such other indemnified person from and against all losses, claims, damages, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable expenses of investigation and reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses) (collectively, the "Losses") caused by, resulting from or relating to any untrue statement (or alleged untrue statement) of a material fact contained in any registration statement (including, without limitation, the Registration Statement), prospectus or preliminary prospectus or any amendment thereof or supplement thereto or any omission (or alleged omission) of a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading, except insofar as the same are caused by any information furnished in writing to Newco by such Seller expressly for use therein or by such Seller's failure to deliver a copy of a current prospectus or any amendments or supplements thereto (which does not contain any such material misstatements or omissions) after Newco has furnished such holder with a sufficient number of copies of the same. (ii) To the extent permitted by law, each Seller shall, severally and not jointly, indemnify Newco, its directors, officers, employees and agents and each Person who controls (within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act and Section 20 of the Exchange Act) Newco or such other indemnified Person against all Losses caused by any untrue statement of material fact contained in any registration statement (including, without limitation, the Registration Statement), prospectus or preliminary prospectus or any amendment thereof or supplement thereto or any omission of a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading, but only to the extent that such untrue statement or omission is caused by and contained in such information so furnished in writing by such Seller expressly for use therein; provided, however, that each Seller's obligation to indemnify Newco hereunder shall, to the extent more than one Seller is subject to the same indemnification obligation, be apportioned between each Seller based upon the net amount received by each Seller from the sale of Newco Shares, as compared to the total net amount received in aggregate by the Sellers for securities sold pursuant to such registration statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Seller shall be liable to the Company for amounts in excess of the lesser of (i) such apportionment and (ii) the amount received by such holder in the offering giving rise to such liability. 6 (b) Any person entitled to indemnification under this Section 4.2 shall give prompt written notice to the indemnifying party of any claim with respect to which it seeks indemnification; provided, however, the failure to give such notice shall not release the indemnifying party from its obligation, except to the extent that the indemnifying party has been materially prejudiced by such failure to provide such notice on a timely basis. (c) In any case in which any such action is brought against any indemnified party, and it notifies an indemnifying party of the commencement thereof, the indemnifying party will be entitled to participate therein, and, to the extent that it may wish, jointly with any other indemnifying party similarly notified, to assume the defense thereof, with counsel reasonably satisfactory to such indemnified party, and after notice from the indemnifying party to such indemnified party of its election so to assume the defense thereof, the indemnifying party will not (so long as it shall continue to have the right to defend, contest, litigate and settle the matter in question in accordance with this paragraph) be liable to such indemnified party hereunder for any legal or other expense subsequently incurred by such indemnified party in connection with the defense thereof other than reasonable costs of investigation, supervision and monitoring (unless (i) such indemnified party reasonably objects to such assumption on the grounds that there may be defenses available to it which are different from or in addition to the defenses available to such indemnifying party or (ii) the indemnifying party shall have failed within a reasonable period of time to assume such defense and the indemnified party is or is reasonably likely to be prejudiced by such delay, in either event the indemnified party shall be promptly reimbursed by the indemnifying party for the expenses incurred in connection with retaining separate legal counsel). An indemnifying party shall not be liable for any settlement of an action or claim effected without its consent. The indemnifying party shall lose its right to defend, contest, litigate and settle a matter if it shall fail to diligently contest such matter (except to the extent settled in accordance with the next following sentence). No matter shall be settled by an indemnifying party without the consent of the indemnified party (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, it being understood that the indemnified party shall not be deemed to be unreasonable in withholding its consent if the proposed settlement imposes any obligation on the indemnified party other than the payment of money). (d) The indemnification provided for under this Section 4.2 shall remain in full force and effect regardless of any investigation made by or on behalf of the indemnified person and will survive the transfer of the Newco Shares and the termination of this Agreement. (e) If recovery is not available under the foregoing indemnification provisions for any reason or reasons other than as specified therein, any person who would otherwise be entitled to indemnification by the terms thereof shall nevertheless be entitled to contribution with respect to any Losses with respect to which such person would be entitled to such indemnification but for such reason or reasons. In determining the amount of contribution to which the respective persons are entitled, there shall be considered the persons' relative knowledge and access to information concerning the matter with respect to which the claim was asserted, the opportunity to correct and prevent any statement or omission, and other equitable considerations appropriate under the circumstances. It is hereby agreed that it would not necessarily be equitable if the amount of such contribution were determined by pro rata or per capita allocation. No person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of 7 Section 11(f) of the Securities Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any person who was not found guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Seller or transferee thereof shall be required to make a contribution in excess of the net amount received by such holder from its sale of Newco Shares in connection with the offering that gave rise to the contribution obligation. Section 4.3 Registration Rights Agreement. In the event (i) an IPO Reduction occurs and the Sellers are unable to sell all of the Newco Shares owned by them in the IPO, or (ii) the IPO is not completed on or before December 31, 2005 but occurs thereafter and the terms of the Registration Rights Agreement would be applicable to either of the Sellers after the completion of that IPO, Newco shall, simultaneously with the consummation of the IPO, execute and deliver to Sellers, and Sellers shall execute and deliver to Newco, the Registration Rights Agreement.
