specified in the Offer. The right to purchase Offered Securities pursuant to this Section 5(a) shall be exercised by such stockholder by giving, within 21 Business Days after delivery of such notice by the Corporation, a counter-notice, which counter-notice shall state that the stockholder giving such counter-notice desires to purchase a specified portion of the Offered Securities up to its Percentage Entitlement.

 

(b)         In the event that one or more of the stockholders fails to exercise its option under Section 5(a) to purchase its full Percentage Entitlement of the Offered Securities, the Corporation shall give written notice to the stockholders who are exercising their option under Section 5(a) to purchase their full Percentage Entitlement (the “Purchasing Stockholders”) stating the amount of Offered Securities not agreed to be purchased pursuant to Section 5(a) (the “Remaining Offered Securities”). Each Purchasing Stockholder shall have the right, prior to any other Person but in common with each other Purchasing Stockholder, to purchase all or any portion of the Remaining Offered Securities. If more than one Purchasing Stockholder exercises its option under this Section 5(b), each such Purchasing Stockholder shall be entitled to purchase, together with such other Purchasing Stockholders, a pro rata amount of the Remaining Offered Securities. The right to purchase the Remaining Offered Securities pursuant to this Section 5(b) shall be exercised by such Purchasing Stockholder by giving, within 10 Business Days after the Corporation’s notice pursuant to this Section 5(b), a counter-notice to the Corporation stating that the Purchasing Stockholder desires to purchase a specified portion of the Remaining Offered Securities up to its pro rata share thereof.

 

(c)          Each stockholder electing pursuant to Section 5(a) to purchase a portion of the Offered Securities and, if applicable, electing pursuant to Section 5(b) to purchase a portion of the Remaining Offered Securities shall be obligated to purchase such Offered Securities and such Remaining Offered Securities (if applicable), and the Corporation shall be obligated to sell such Offered Securities and such Remaining Offered Securities (if applicable), at the price and on the terms and conditions contained in such Offer, except that (i) the closing date of such purchase and sale shall take place within 30 Business Days after the final date to give the counter-notice under Section 5(a) or, if applicable, under Section 5(b), and (ii) in the event that all or any part of the purchase price stated in the Offer is not payable in cash, the stockholder giving the applicable counter-notice may make payment in cash in an amount at least equal to the fair market value of the non-cash consideration of such Offer.

 

(d)         If the stockholders fail to elect to purchase, or to consummate the purchase of, all the Offered Securities and Remaining Offered Securities, the Corporation may thereafter Issue to any other Person or Persons that amount of Offered Securities or Remaining Offered Securities not purchased pursuant to the terms hereof and specified in such Offer at the price and on the terms and conditions contained in such Offer. In the event that the Corporation does not so consummate the Issue of the Offered Securities or the Remaining Offered Securities within 75 Business Days after the expiration of the final applicable counter-notice period, the Corporation shall not thereafter Issue any Securities, without first again offering such Securities to the stockholders in the manner provided in this Section 5.
