ARTICLE III
 
MERGER CONSIDERATION; CONVERSION AND EXCHANGE OF SECURITIES
 
Section 3.1       Manner and Basis of Converting and Exchanging Capital Stock.  At the Effective Time, by virtue of the Merger and without any action on the part of the Company, Parent or Acquisition Corp. or the holders of any outstanding shares of capital stock or other securities of the Company, Parent or Acquisition Corp.:
 
(a)           Acquisition Corp. Stock.  Each share of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of Acquisition Corp. issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be converted into and become one validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable share of common stock, $0.01 par value per share, of the Surviving Corporation, such that Parent shall be the holder of all of the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of the Surviving Corporation following the Merger.
 
(b)           Company Common Stock. Shares of Company Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be exchanged for the right to receive a pro-rata portion of a total of 25,000,000 shares of Parent Common Stock and 2,562 shares of Parent Series B Convertible Preferred Stock.
 
(c)           Treasury Stock. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, each share of Company Capital Stock held in the treasury of the Company and each share of Company Capital Stock, if any, owned by Parent or any direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be canceled in the Merger and shall not be converted or exchanged into the right to receive any shares of capital stock or other securities of Parent.
 
(d)           No Fractional Shares.  No fractional shares of Parent Common Stock or Parent Preferred Stock shall be issued in, or as a result of, the Merger.  Any fractional shares of Parent Common Stock or Parent Preferred Stock that a holder of record of Company Capital Stock would otherwise be entitled to receive as a result of the Merger shall be aggregated.  If a fractional share of Parent Common Stock or Parent Preferred Stock results from such aggregation, the number of shares required to be issued to such record holder shall be rounded to the nearest whole number of shares of Parent Common Stock or Parent Preferred Stock.
 
Section 3.2       Surrender and Exchange of Certificates.
 
(a)           Letter of Transmittal.  Promptly after the Effective Time, Parent shall mail, or cause to be mailed, to each record holder of certificate(s) formerly representing ownership of Company Capital Stock that was converted into the right to receive Parent Common Stock or Parent Preferred Stock pursuant to Section 3.1 hereof (i) a letter of transmittal (“Letter of Transmittal”) for delivery of such certificate(s) to Parent and (ii) instruction for use in effecting the surrender of certificate(s), in each case in form and substance mutually agreeable to the Company and Parent.  Delivery shall be effected, and risk of loss and title to the Parent Common Stock and Parent Preferred Stock shall pass, only upon delivery to the Parent (or a duly authorized agent of Parent) of certificate(s) formerly representing ownership of Company Capital Stock (or an affidavit of lost certificate and indemnification or surety bond) and a properly completed and duly executed Letter of Transmittal, as described in Section 3.2(b) hereof.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, Parent shall not be required to mail, or cause to be mailed, a Letter of Transmittal to any record holder of certificate(s) formerly representing ownership of Company Capital Stock if such holder has previously agreed or consented to the exchange of certificates that are held in custody by the Company for the benefit of such holder.
 
 
6

 
(b)           Exchange Procedures.  Parent shall issue to each former record holder of Company Capital Stock, upon delivery to Parent (or a duly authorized agent of Parent) of (i) certificate(s) formerly representing ownership of Company Capital Stock, endorsed in blank or accompanied by duly executed stock powers (or an affidavit of lost certificate and indemnification in form and substance reasonably acceptable to Parent stating that, among other things, the former record holder has lost his or her certificate(s) or that such certificate(s) have been destroyed) and (ii) a properly completed and duly executed Letter of Transmittal in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Parent, a certificate or certificates registered in the name of such former record holder representing the number of shares of Parent Common Stock and Parent Preferred Stock that such former record holder is entitled to receive in accordance with Section 3.1 hereof.  Subject to Section 3.2(d) hereof, until the certificate(s) (or affidavit) is delivered together with the Letter of Transmittal in the manner contemplated by this Section 3.2(b), each certificate (or affidavit) previously representing ownership of Company Capital Stock shall be deemed at and after the Effective Time to represent only the right to receive Parent Common Stock and Parent Preferred Stock and the former record holders thereof shall cease to have any other rights with respect to his or her Company Capital Stock.
 
(c)           Termination of Exchange Process.  Any Parent Common Stock or Parent Preferred Stock that remains unclaimed by a former record holder of Company Capital Stock at the first anniversary of the Effective Time may be deemed “abandoned property” subject to applicable abandoned property, escheat and other similar laws in the State in which the former record holder resides.  None of the Company, Parent, Acquisition Corp. or the Surviving Corporation shall be liable to any person in respect of any Parent Common Stock or Parent Preferred Stock delivered to a public official pursuant to any applicable abandoned property, escheat or similar law.
 
(d)           Dissenting Shares.  Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, shares of Company Capital Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time and held by a Stockholder who has not voted in favor of the Merger or consented thereto in writing and who has demanded appraisal for such shares of Company Capital Stock in accordance with the DCGL (“Dissenting Shares”) shall not be entitled to vote for any purpose or receive dividends, shall not be converted into the right to receive Parent Common Stock in accordance with Section 3.1 hereof, and shall only be entitled to receive such consideration as shall be determined pursuant to the DCGL; provided, however, that if, after the Effective Time, such Stockholder fails to perfect or withdraws or loses his or her right to appraisal or otherwise fails to establish the right to be paid the value of such Stockholder’s shares of Company Capital Stock under the DCGL, such shares of Company Capital Stock shall be treated as if they had converted as of the Effective Time into the right to receive Parent Common Stock and Parent Preferred Stock in accordance with Section 3.1 hereof, and such shares of Company Capital Stock shall no longer be Dissenting Shares.  All negotiations with respect to payment for Dissenting Shares shall be handled jointly by Parent and the Company prior to the Closing and exclusively by Parent thereafter.  In the event that one percent (1%) or more of the outstanding shares of the Company are Dissenting Shares, the Parent has the sole discretion to terminate this Agreement, which shall forthwith become void and of no further force and effect and the parties hereto shall be released from any and all obligations hereunder; provided, however, that nothing herein shall relieve any party hereto from liability for the breach of any of its representations, warranties, covenants or agreements set forth in this Agreement.
 
(e)           Stock Transfer Books.  At the Effective Time, the stock transfer books of the Company will be closed and there will be no further registration of transfers of shares of Company Capital Stock thereafter on the records of the Company.  If, after the Effective Time, certificates formerly representing Company Capital Stock are presented to the Surviving Corporation, these certificates shall be canceled and exchanged for the number of shares of Parent Common Stock and Parent Preferred Stock to which the former record holder may be entitled pursuant to Section 3.1 hereof.

Section 9.3       Time Limitations.  The Parent shall not have any liability (for indemnification or otherwise) with respect to any representation or warranty contained in this Agreement or in any instrument delivered pursuant to this Agreement, unless on or before the twelve month anniversary of the Effective Time (a “Claims Deadline”), the Parent is given notice of a claim with respect thereto, in accordance with Section 9.5, specifying the factual basis therefore in reasonable detail to the extent then known by the applicable Company Indemnified Parties. The Company shall not have any liability (for indemnification or otherwise) with respect to any representation or warranty contained in this Agreement or in any instrument delivered pursuant to this Agreement, unless before the Effective Time (a “Claims Deadline”), the Company is given notice of a claim with respect thereto, in accordance with Section 9.5, specifying the factual basis therefore in reasonable detail to the extent then known by the applicable Parent Indemnified Parties.
 
 
26

(a)           The aggregate liability shall not exceed $50,000.
 
(b)           Other than claims based on fraud, willful misconduct or for specific performance, injunctive or other equitable relief, the Company Indemnified Parties’ and Parent Indemnified Parties’ sole and exclusive remedy for any and all claims for Damages pursuant to Section 9.1 hereof shall be the indemnification provided under the terms and subject to the conditions of this Article IX.
 
Section 9.5       Notice of Claims.

(b)           In the event that any action, suit or proceeding is brought against any Company Indemnified Party or Parent Indemnified Party with respect to which Parent or Company, as applicable, may have liability under this Article IX, the indemnifying party shall have the right, at its cost and expense, to defend such action, suit or proceeding in the name and on behalf of the indemnified party; provided, however, that an indemnified party shall have the right to retain its own counsel, with fees and expenses paid by the indemnifying party, if representation of the indemnified party would be inappropriate because of actual or potential differing interests between indemnified and indemnifying parties.  In connection with any action, suit or proceeding subject to this Article IX, each party agrees to render to each other such assistance as may reasonably be required in order to ensure proper and adequate defense of such action, suit or proceeding.  A party shall not, without the prior written consent of the applicable indemnified party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, settle or compromise any claim or demand if such settlement or compromise does not include an irrevocable and unconditional release of such indemnified party for any liability arising out of such claim or demand.

or to such other persons or addresses as may be designated in writing by the party to receive such notice.  Nothing in this Section 11.2 shall be deemed to constitute consent to the manner and address for service of process in connection with any legal proceeding (including arbitration arising in connection with this Agreement), which service shall be effected as required by applicable law.
 
Section 11.3     Entire Agreement.  This Agreement and the exhibits attached hereto or referred to herein constitute the entire agreement of the parties hereto, and supersede all prior agreements and undertakings, both written and oral, among the parties hereto, with respect to the subject matter hereof and thereof.
 
Section 11.4     Expenses.  Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, whether or not the Merger occurs, all expenses and fees incurred by Parent and Acquisition Corp. on one hand, and the Company on the other, shall be borne solely and entirely by the party that has incurred the same; provided, that if the Merger occurs, Parent agrees to pay, and shall cause the Surviving Corporation to pay, any unpaid fees and expenses of the Company (including fees and expenses of its counsel and other advisors) in connection with the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.
 
Section 11.5     Severability.  If any term or other provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced by any rule of law or public policy, all other conditions and provisions of this Agreement will nevertheless remain in full force and effect so long as the economic or legal substance of the transactions contemplated hereby is not affected in any manner materially adverse to any party.  Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced, the parties hereto will negotiate in good faith to amend or modify this Agreement so as to effect the original intent of the parties as closely as possible in an acceptable manner to the end that transactions contemplated hereby are fulfilled to the extent possible.
 
Section 11.6     Successors and Assigns; Assignment.  This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns.  Neither this Agreement nor any of the rights, interests or obligations hereunder shall be assigned or delegated by any of the parties hereto without, in the case of Parent and Acquisition Corp., the prior written approval of the Company and, in the case of the Company, the prior written approval of Parent.
 
Section 11.7     No Third Party Beneficiaries.  Except as set forth in Section 9.1 and Section 11.6, nothing herein expressed or implied shall be construed to give any person other than the parties hereto (and their successors and assigns as permitted herein) any legal or equitable rights hereunder.
 
Section 11.8     Counterparts; Delivery by Facsimile.  This Agreement may be executed in multiple counterparts, and by the different parties hereto in separate counterparts, each of which when executed will be deemed to be an original but all of which taken together will constitute one and the same agreement.  This Agreement and each other agreement or instrument entered into in connection herewith or therewith or contemplated hereby or thereby, and any amendments hereto or thereto, to the extent signed and delivered by means of a facsimile machine or by electronic mail, shall be treated in all manner and respects as an original agreement or instrument and shall be considered to have the same binding legal effect as if it were the original signed version thereof delivered in person.  At the request of any party hereto or to any such agreement or instrument, each other party hereto or thereto shall re-execute original forms thereof and deliver them to all other parties.  No party hereto or to any such agreement or instrument shall raise the use of a facsimile machine or electronic mail to deliver a signature or the fact that any signature or agreement or instrument was transmitted or communicated through the use of a facsimile machine or electronic mail as a defense to the formation or enforceability of a contract and each such party forever waives any such defense.
 
 
29

 
Section 11.9     Waiver.  At any time prior to the Effective Time, any party hereto may (a) extend the time for the performance of any of the obligations or other acts of the other party hereto; (b) waive any inaccuracies in the representations and breaches of the warranties of the other party contained herein or in any document delivered pursuant hereto; and (c) waive compliance by the other party with any of the agreements or conditions contained herein.  Any such extension or waiver will be valid only if set forth in an instrument in writing signed by the party or parties to be bound thereby.
 
Section 11.10   No Constructive Waivers.  No failure or delay on the part of any party hereto in the exercise of any right hereunder will impair such right or be construed to be a waiver of, or acquiescence in, any breach of any representation, warranty, agreement or covenant herein, nor will any single or partial exercise of any such right preclude other or further exercise thereof or of any other right.  No waiver by any party of any default, misrepresentation, or breach of warranty or covenant hereunder, whether intentional or not, shall be deemed to extend to any prior or subsequent default, misrepresentation, or breach of warranty or covenant hereunder or affect in any way any rights arising by virtue of any prior or subsequent such occurrence.
 
Section 11.11   Further Assurances.  The parties hereto shall use their commercially reasonable efforts to do and perform or cause to be done and performed all such further acts and things and shall execute and deliver all such other agreements, certificates, instruments or documents as any other party hereto may reasonably request in order to carry out fully the intent and purposes of this Agreement and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby.
 
Section 11.12   Recitals.  The recitals set forth above are incorporated herein and, by this reference, are made part of this Agreement as if fully set forth herein.
 
Section 11.13   Headings.  The headings contained in this Agreement are for reference purposes only and shall not affect in any way the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement.
 
Section 11.14   Governing Law.  This Agreement and the agreements, instruments and documents contemplated hereby shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware without regard to its conflicts of law principles.
 
Section 11.15   Dispute Resolution.  The parties hereto shall initially attempt to resolve all claims, disputes or controversies arising under, out of or in connection with this Agreement by conducting good faith negotiations amongst themselves.  If the parties hereto are unable to resolve the matter following good faith negotiations, the matter shall thereafter be resolved by binding arbitration and each party hereto hereby waives any right it may otherwise have to the resolution of such matter by any means other than binding arbitration pursuant to this Section 11.15.  Whenever a party shall decide to institute arbitration proceedings, it shall provide written notice to that effect to the other parties hereto.  The party giving such notice shall, however, refrain from instituting the arbitration proceedings for a period of sixty (60) days following such notice.  During this period, the parties shall make good faith efforts to amicably resolve the claim, dispute or controversy without arbitration.  Any arbitration hereunder shall be conducted in the English language under the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association.  Any such arbitration shall be conducted in New York, New York by one arbitrator which shall be appointed by the American Arbitration Association.  The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant specific performance.  Judgment upon the award so rendered may be entered in any court having jurisdiction or application may be made to such court for judicial acceptance of any award and an order of enforcement, as the case may be.  In no event shall a demand for arbitration be made after the date when institution of a legal or equitable proceeding based on the claim, dispute or controversy in question would be barred under this Agreement or by the applicable statute of limitations.  The prevailing party in any arbitration in accordance with this Section 11.15 shall be entitled to recover from the other party, in addition to any other remedies specified in the award, all reasonable costs, attorneys’ fees and other expenses incurred by such prevailing party to arbitrate the claim, dispute or controversy.
