Purchaser, at Purchaser’s option, shall use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain the following prior to the expiration of the Due Diligence Period: (i) an updated real property survey for the Facility (the “Survey”), and (ii)  a title commitment for the Facility (the “Title Commitment”), issued by a national title company selected by Purchaser (the “Title Company”), which Title Commitment shall contain a commitment by the Title Company to issue to Purchaser a title insurance policy on an extended coverage ALTA Owner’s form, in form and substance reasonably acceptable to Purchaser (the “Title Policy”) insuring the valid fee simple title to the Facility. Seller will cause all standard exceptions to be deleted from the Title Policy at the Closing, other than exceptions for (i) such itemized matters shown on the Survey to which Purchaser does not object pursuant to the provisions hereof and (ii) taxes for the year in which the Closing occurs which are not yet due and payable, and Seller will execute and deliver or otherwise obtain such documents and instruments as the Title Company shall require, including, without limitation, Seller’s affidavits and gap indemnities. Purchaser shall have until the expiration of the Due Diligence Period to give written notice to Seller accepting or objecting to the Title Commitment and Survey, with any such notice of objection specifying the exceptions or other matters to which Purchaser objects. The failure of Purchaser to object to any matter reflected in the Title Commitment or Survey prior to the expiration of the Due Diligence Period shall cause such matter to become a Permitted Encumbrance; provided, however, Seller shall be unconditionally obligated to pay any outstanding indebtedness evidenced by, and cause the release of any lien, mortgage, deed of trust, deed to secure debt, security agreement, judgment, tax lien or other encumbrance affecting the Assets and capable of being released through or as a result of the payment of money (collectively, “Monetary Encumbrances”) irrespective of whether Purchaser objects to same unless and only to the extent that such obligation is waived in writing by Purchaser. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Purchaser shall not have the right to object to any matters created or consented to in separate written consent by Purchaser, all of which shall be deemed to be “Permitted Encumbrances” hereunder. If Purchaser objects to any encumbrance or other matter reflected in the Title Commitment or Survey, Seller shall have ten (10) Business Days from the date of the notice of such objection within which to cure the same (which cure may be effected by payment and discharge of the objectionable item or by causing the Title Company to remove the same as an exception or affirmatively insure over such item provided such affirmative insurance shall be reasonably satisfactory to Purchaser and any lender of Purchaser and sufficient, in Purchaser’s reasonable judgment, to adequately address Purchaser’s and any lender’s concerns with respect to such matter) and in the event Seller shall fail or refuse to do so within said ten (10) Business Day period, Purchaser shall have five (5) Business Days thereafter in which to advise Seller in writing of Purchaser’s election (x) to make such payments as are necessary to effect releases of such claims Seller is not prepared to cure and to proceed to Closing or (y) to terminate this Agreement by notice to Seller, in which case the Deposit shall be refunded to Purchaser, and neither party shall have any further rights, duties or obligations hereunder or (z) to extend the Closing Date for a period not to exceed thirty (30) days to enable Purchaser or Seller to so cure; provided, however, (i) Purchaser shall have the right, but shall not be obligated, to cure such matters, (ii) if neither party cures such matters in said thirty (30) day period, Purchaser shall again have the right to terminate this Agreement, in which case the Deposit shall be refunded to Purchaser, and neither party shall have any further rights, duties or obligations hereunder and (iii) any such extension shall not limit or affect Seller’s absolute obligation hereunder to cure all Monetary Encumbrances. In the event that any update to the Title Commitment prior to or on the Closing Date reveals any new matter not previously shown or disclosed on the prior Title Commitment, then Purchaser will have the same rights of objection, termination and extension of the Closing Date, and Seller will have the same obligations of cure, as set forth above. In the event Seller undertakes or commits to cure any item to which Purchaser objects and does not cure the same on or before Closing, completion of such cure to Purchaser’s satisfaction shall be a condition to Purchaser’s obligation to close the transaction contemplated herein.

 

 

 

 

(c)          Environmental Reports. Seller will provide copies of any previously prepared Phase I environmental assessments or other environmental assessments in Seller’s possession conducted for the Facility pursuant to the Preliminary Due Diligence Checklist and Seller will permit Purchaser and its agents to conduct a non-invasive environmental assessment for the Facility (the “Phase I”). Purchaser will have until the expiration of the Due Diligence Period to approve or disapprove the Phase I in writing delivered to Seller. If the Phase I recommends that a Phase II Environmental Assessment (a “Phase II”) be ordered for the Facility, then Purchaser will use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain such Phase II prior to the expiration of the Due Diligence Period provided Seller has consented to Purchaser conducting such Phase II. In the event Seller does not consent to the Phase II, Purchaser may terminate this Agreement and Purchaser shall be entitled to a return of its Deposit. In the event Seller consents to the Phase II, and the Phase II is not completed prior to the expiration of the Due Diligence Period, the Due Diligence Period shall automatically be extended until the date that is five (5) Business Days after the date that Purchaser receives the Phase II. Should Purchaser disapprove of any matter set forth in the Phase I or Phase II, Purchaser shall notify Seller in writing of such disapproval at or prior to the expiration of the Due Diligence Period (as such period may be extended as contemplated above) (the “Environmental Notice”). The failure of Purchaser to deliver an Environmental Notice to Seller on or prior to the expiration of the Due Diligence Period shall be deemed to be a waiver by Purchaser of any right to disapprove any matter specifically set forth in the Phase I or Phase II, respectively. If Purchaser delivers an Environmental Notice to Seller prior to the expiration of the Due Diligence Period, Seller shall have ten (10) Business Days from the date of Seller’s receipt of such Environmental Notice in which to advise Purchaser whether or not Seller will cure the same prior to Closing, and if Seller fails or refuses to do so within said ten (10) Business Day period, Purchaser shall have five (5) Business Days thereafter in which to advise Seller in writing of Purchaser’s election (x) to waive the matters to which Purchaser objected and to proceed to Closing or (y) to terminate this Agreement by notice to Seller, in which case the Deposit shall be refunded to Purchaser, and neither party shall have any further rights, duties or obligations hereunder or (z) to extend the Closing Date for a period not to exceed thirty (30) days to enable Purchaser or Seller to so cure; provided, however, (i) Purchaser shall have the right, but shall not be obligated, to cure such matters and (ii) if neither party cures such matters in said thirty (30) day period, Purchaser shall again have the right to terminate this Agreement, in which case the Deposit shall be refunded to Purchaser, and neither party shall have any further rights, duties or obligations hereunder. If requested by Seller, Purchaser shall promptly provide Seller a copy of the Phase I and Phase II (if applicable).

 

 

 

 

(d)          No Solicitation. After the Effective Date and before the Closing Date, Seller shall not directly or indirectly, through any officer, director, employee, agent or otherwise, solicit, initiate or encourage submission of proposals or offers from any person relating to any acquisition of all or any portion of the Assets, or any assets of or equity interest in Seller or any business combination involving Seller, or furnish to any other person any information with respect to, or otherwise cooperate in any way with, or assist or participate in, facilitate or encourage, any effort or attempt by any other person to do or seek any of the foregoing.

 

(e)          Capital Expenditures. Seller shall complete all capital projects as needed on an emergency basis or as otherwise required to maintain the Facility in good operating condition in a good and workmanlike manner, using materials and labor, all at Seller’s sole cost and expense.

 

(f)          Changes in Representations and Warranties. Throughout the period from the Effective Date through and including the Closing Date, Seller shall give Purchaser prompt written notice of (i) any representation and warranty made by Seller in this Agreement which Seller hereafter learns was inaccurate or incorrect when originally made and (ii) any event, change or occurrence which would make any representation or warranty of Seller inaccurate or incorrect as of the time of such event, change or occurrence (Seller hereby acknowledging and agreeing that all representations and warranties of Seller herein are hereby deemed to re-made and re-affirmed by Seller each and every day while this Agreement is in effect) and (iii) any event, change or occurrence which will or reasonably may be anticipated to prevent Seller from making the same representations and warranties as set forth herein on and as of the Closing Date. The giving of any such notices shall not limit or modify any rights of Purchaser hereunder arising in the case of a breach of a representation or warranty by Seller, and Purchaser shall have the right to terminate this Agreement at any time prior to Closing following receipt by Purchaser of any such notice of a materially inaccurate or incorrect representation or warranty, such determination of materiality to be made by Purchaser in its sole discretion.

5.4           Changes in Representations and Warranties. Throughout the period from the Effective Date through and including the Closing Date, Purchaser shall give Seller prompt written notice of any representation and warranty made by Purchaser in this Agreement which becomes materially inaccurate or incorrect, to the extent Purchaser obtains knowledge of such inaccuracy or incorrectness.

 

ARTICLE VI

 

INDEMNIFICATION

 

6.1           Indemnification by Seller. Seller unconditionally and irrevocably indemnifies, protects and agrees to defend and hold harmless Purchaser from and against any and all loss, cost or expense, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising from (i) the breach or violation of any representation or warranty of Seller contained herein; (ii) the failure of Seller to satisfy or perform any covenant or other provision contained herein; (iii) any violation of any covenant, condition or restriction affecting any Property caused by Seller or its agents or employees; (iv) any encroachment of buildings or other improvements onto adjoining lands or onto easements or licenses or rights-of-way located on any Property which is not a Permitted Encumbrances; (v) the presence or existence of any Hazardous Substance on, in or under any Property; and (v) any claims made against Purchaser by any third party arising out of the transactions contemplated in this Agreement or the Exhibits hereto (collectively, “Purchaser Indemnified Losses”). Payment shall not be a condition precedent to recovery under the foregoing indemnification provision.

 

6.2           Indemnification by Purchaser. Purchaser hereby unconditionally and irrevocably indemnifies, protects and agrees to defend and hold harmless Seller from and against any and all loss, cost or expense, including costs and reasonable legal fees, incurred by Seller as a result of the breach or violation of any representation or warranty of Purchaser hereunder. Payment shall not be a condition precedent to recovery under the foregoing indemnification provision.

 

 

 

 

6.3           Notification of Claims.

 

(a)          A party entitled to be indemnified pursuant to Section 6.1 or 6.2 above (the “Indemnified Party”) shall notify the party liable for such indemnification (the “Indemnifying Party”) in writing of any claim or demand which the Indemnified Party has determined gives rise or will likely give rise to a right of indemnification under this Agreement, as soon as possible after the Indemnified Party becomes aware of such claim or demand and has made such determination; provided, however, that the Indemnified Party’s failure to give such notice to the Indemnifying Party in a timely fashion shall not result in the loss of the Indemnified Party’s rights with respect thereto except to the extent the Indemnified Party is prejudiced by the delay. Subject to the Indemnifying Party’s right to defend in good faith third party claims as hereinafter provided, the Indemnifying Party shall satisfy its obligations under this Article within thirty (30) days after the receipt of written notice thereon from the Indemnified Party, it being agreed that the Indemnifying Party need not satisfy such obligations during any period in which the Indemnifying Party is defending in good faith the applicable third party claim in the manner described hereinbelow.

 

(b)          If the Indemnified Party notifies the Indemnifying Party of any claim or demand pursuant to Section 6.3(a), and if such claim or demand relates to a claim or demand asserted by a third party against the Indemnified Party which the Indemnifying Party acknowledges is a claim or demand for which it must indemnify or hold harmless the Indemnified Party under Section 6.1 or 6.2, the Indemnifying Party shall have the right to either (i) pay such claim or demand or (ii) employ counsel reasonably acceptable to the Indemnified Party to defend any such claim or demand asserted against the Indemnified Party. The Indemnified Party shall have the right to participate in the defense of any such claim or demand. The Indemnifying Party shall notify the Indemnified Party in writing, as promptly as possible (but in any case reasonably in advance of the due date for the answer or response to a claim) after the date of the notice of claim given by the Indemnified Party to the Indemnifying Party under Section 6.3(a) of its election to defend in good faith any such third party claim or demand. So long as the Indemnifying Party is defending in good faith any such claim or demand asserted by a third party against the Indemnified Party and is able to demonstrate to the Indemnified Party its financial wherewithal to fully perform its indemnification obligation in the event such contested claim is resolved adversely to the Indemnified Party, the Indemnified Party shall not settle or compromise such claim or demand. The Indemnified Party shall make available to such counsel all records and other materials in the Indemnified Party’s possession reasonably required by it for its use in contesting any third party claim or demand. Whether or not the Indemnifying Party elects to defend any such claim or demand, the Indemnified Party shall have no obligations to do so.

 

(c)          The Indemnified Party shall have the right to participate in any matter through counsel of its own choosing at its own expense (unless the Indemnified Party determines in good faith that there is a conflict of interest that prevents counsel for the Indemnifying Party from representing the Indemnified Party, in which case the Indemnifying Party will have the right to choose and fund other counsel to represent the Indemnified Party or to reimburse the Indemnified Party for the expenses of its counsel). After the Indemnifying Party has notified the Indemnified Party of its intention to undertake to defend or settle any such Third Party Claim, and for so long as the Indemnifying Party diligently pursues such defense, the Indemnifying Party shall not be liable for any additional legal expenses incurred by the Indemnified Party in connection with any defense or settlement of such Third Party Claim, except to the extent such participation is requested by the Indemnifying Party, in which event the Indemnified Party shall be reimbursed by the Indemnifying Party for reasonable legal expenses and out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with such requested participation.

 

 

 

 

(d)          An Indemnifying Party may not, without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party, settle or compromise any claim against an Indemnified Party or consent to the entry of any judgment with respect to which indemnification is being sought hereunder unless such settlement, compromise or consent includes an unconditional release of the Indemnified Party from all liability arising out of such claim and does not contain any equitable order, judgment or term which in any manner affects, restrains or interferes with the business of the Indemnified Party or any of the Indemnified Party’s affiliates.

 

ARTICLE VII

ARTICLE X

 

DEFAULT; REMEDIES

 

10.1         Purchaser’s Default. If at any time Purchaser is in default of any representation, warranty or covenant of Purchaser under this Agreement in any material respect, and Seller gives notice of such default to Purchaser (“Seller’s Notice”) then Purchaser will have a period expiring on the tenth (10th) Business Day after the date of Seller’s Notice (“Purchaser’s Cure Period”), to (i) correct or cure Purchaser’s default or (ii) if the Due Diligence Period has not expired, to terminate this Agreement by notice to Seller, whereupon the Deposit shall be returned to Purchaser and neither party shall have any further rights, duties or obligations hereunder except as expressly survive the termination hereof.

10.3         Default Not Cured. If Purchaser does not elect to terminate during the Due Diligence Period, and Purchaser does not cure its default within the Purchaser’s Cure Period, then, provided no default by Seller then exists and provided that Seller has not elected to waive such default, this Agreement shall terminate and the parties shall be released and discharged of and from all further obligations and liabilities under this Agreement, and the Deposit shall be paid to Seller as Seller’s sole and exclusive liquidated damages and in full and complete settlement and liquidation of all damages sustained by Seller, it being acknowledged by Seller and Purchaser that the amount of damages incurred by Seller as a result of Purchaser’s default would be substantial but difficult, if not impossible, to ascertain and that such liquidated damages represent the parties’ best estimate of the damages Seller will incur as a result of such default. Seller shall not be entitled to exercise any other rights, powers or remedies at law or in equity, other than its right to receive the Deposit pursuant hereto, and Seller hereby expressly and irrevocably waives all such other rights, powers and remedies and hereby covenants not to sue.

 

 

 

 

10.4         Seller’s Default. If Seller is in default of any representation, warranty or covenant of Seller under this Agreement in any material respect and Purchaser gives notice of such default to Seller (“Purchaser’s Notice”), then Seller will have a period expiring on the tenth (10th) Business Day after the date of Purchaser’s Notice (“Seller’s Cure Period”), to correct or cure Seller’s default.

11.4         Brokers and Finders; Expenses. Except for Seller’s retention of Keller Williams Realty Diamond Partners, Inc., whose compensation shall be the sole obligation and responsibility of Seller, the parties hereto represent and warrant to each other that none of them has retained any broker or finder in connection with this transaction.

Purchaser may assign its rights under the Agreement to an affiliate that controls Purchaser or is controlled by Purchaser or is under common control with Purchaser, including joint venture entities in which Purchaser or its affiliates share control with third parties, without the prior written consent of Seller (each such assignee a “Purchaser’s Permitted Assignee”). Other than the foregoing, neither Purchaser nor Seller may assign this Agreement without first obtaining the other party’s written consent, which may be withheld in such other party’s sole discretion. Upon an assignment by Purchaser of its rights under the Agreement in accordance with this Section, Purchaser’s Permitted Assignee(s) shall be deemed to be the Purchaser hereunder and shall be the beneficiary of all of Seller’s warranties, representations and covenants in favor of Purchaser under this Agreement. If there is more than one Seller hereunder, the obligations of Sellers hereunder shall be joint and several.

 

11.7         Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State or Commonwealth where the Facility is located as to, including, but not limited to, matters of validity, construction, effect and performance but exclusive of its conflicts of laws provisions.
