10


 

the Independent Accountants that are resolved in favor of Buyer (that being the difference between the Independent Accountants’ determination and Sellers’ Agent determination) and the denominator of which is the total amount of disputed amounts submitted to the Independent Accountants (that being the sum total by which Buyer’s determination and Sellers’ determination differ from the determination of the Independent Accountants).  Buyer shall pay that portion of the fees and expenses of the Independent Accountants that Sellers are not required to pay hereunder.  The Independent Accountants shall resolve each disputed item by choosing a value not in excess of, nor less than, the greatest or lowest value, respectively, set forth in the Closing Statement or Closing Statement Dispute Notice, as applicable, or if such range is narrower with respect to any disputed item, the presentations (and, if applicable, the responses) delivered to the Independent Accountants pursuant to this Section 2.4(b).  Such determination of the Independent Accountants shall be conclusive and binding upon the Parties absent fraud or manifest error.  The Closing Statement shall be revised as appropriate to reflect the resolution of any objections thereto pursuant to this Section 2.4(b), and, as so revised, such Closing Statement shall be deemed to set forth the final Closing Working Capital, Closing Date Indebtedness, Closing Cash and Purchase Price, in each case, for all purposes hereunder (including the determination of the Adjustment Amount, if any).

(c)       Buyer and Sellers agree that the procedures set forth in this Section 2.4 for resolving disputes with respect to the Closing Statement shall be the sole and exclusive method for resolving, and shall be the sole and exclusive remedy with respect to, any such disputes; provided, that this provision shall not prohibit either Party from instituting litigation to enforce any final determination of the Purchase Price by the Independent Accountants pursuant to Section 2.4(b) or to compel any Party to submit any dispute arising in connection with this Section 2.4 to the Independent Accountants pursuant to and in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in this Section 2.4, in each case, in any court of competent jurisdiction in accordance with Section 10.11.  The substance of the Independent Accountants’ determination shall not be subject to review or appeal, absent a showing of fraud or manifest error.  It is the intent of the Parties to have any final determination of the Purchase Price by the Independent Accountants proceed in an expeditious manner; provided that any deadline or time period contained herein may be extended or modified by the written agreement of the Buyer and Sellers’ Agent and the Parties agree that the failure of the Independent Accountants to strictly conform to any deadline or time period contained herein shall not be a basis for seeking to overturn any determination rendered by the Independent Accountants which otherwise conforms to the terms of this Section 2.4.

2.5       Adjustment to Purchase Price.

(a)       If the Adjustment Amount is equal to zero or a positive amount, then within five (5) Business Days after the date on which the Purchase Price is finally determined pursuant to Section 2.4, Buyer shall pay to Sellers (based upon their Pro Rata Share) the Adjustment Amount plus the WC Holdback Amount in cash by wire transfer of immediately available funds.

(b)       If the Adjustment Amount is a negative amount and the absolute value of such Adjustment Amount is less than the WC Holdback Amount, then within five (5) Business Days after the date on which the Purchase Price is finally determined pursuant to Section 2.4, Buyer shall pay to Sellers (based upon their Pro Rata Share) the Adjustment Amount (which shall

11


 

be a negative number) plus the WC Holdback Amount in cash by wire transfer of immediately available funds.

(c)       If the Adjustment Amount is a negative amount and the absolute value of such Adjustment Amount is equal to or higher than the WC Holdback Amount, then within five (5) Business Days after the date on which the Purchase Price is finally determined pursuant to Section 2.4, Buyer shall retain the entire WC Holdback Amount and additional funds (the difference of the absolute value of the Adjustment Amount and WC Holdback Amount) from the Indemnity Holdback Amount.

5.3       Seller and Founder Release.

(a)        Each of the Founders and Sellers, on behalf of themselves and their respective predecessors, successors, assigns, heirs, executors, legatees, administrators, beneficiaries, owners, representatives and agents (the “Releasing Parties”), upon the Closing, shall be deemed to have, and hereby does, unconditionally release and forever discharge Company, its subsidiaries and parent entities, including their respective officers, directors, employees, shareholders, successors, assigns, agents, advisors, representatives and Affiliates (the “Released Parties”), from (i) any and all obligations or duties the Released Parties might have to the Releasing Parties, (ii) any and all claims of Liability, whether legal or equitable, of every kind and nature, which the Releasing Parties ever had, now have or may claim against the Released Parties, in each case, in connection with this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby, (iii) any and all claims of Liability, whether legal or equitable, of every kind and nature, which the Releasing Parties ever had, now have or may claim against the Released Parties, in each case arising out of facts or circumstances occurring at any time on or prior to the Closing Date; provided, however, that such release shall exclude those Liabilities of Company arising out of this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements and shall exclude, to the extent the Seller is an employee, independent contractor, officer or director of Company, (i) earned compensation not yet paid, (ii) reimbursement for expenses incurred by the Seller in the ordinary course of his or her employment which are reimbursable under Company’s expense reimbursement policies, (iii) accrued benefits, including vacation, subject to Company’s policies on accrual and carry forward and (iv) any rights that the Releasing Parties may have to be indemnified by any Released Parties under the terms of the articles of incorporation or bylaws of the Company or pursuant to any indemnification agreement between the Releasing Parties and the Company, which rights to indemnification shall be satisfied solely from the D&O Tail Policy and amounts paid by Sellers for claims under Section 9.2(b)(v).

15

“A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS/HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN TO HIM/HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS/HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.”

Buyer shall provide a copy of each Straddle Period Tax Return and a statement certifying the amount of Pre-Closing Taxes shown on such Straddle Period Tax Return, if any, that are chargeable to the Sellers, to the Sellers’ Agent for review and comment at least fifteen (15) days before such Straddle Period Tax Return is filed and shall consider in good faith any comments provided by the Sellers’ Agent.  The Sellers’ Agent, on behalf of the Sellers, shall pay to Buyer or the relevant member of Company any Pre-Closing Taxes for which the Sellers are responsible pursuant to Section 5.4(d) at least ten (10) days before Company or Buyer is required to cause to be paid the related Tax Liability.

(e)      Calculation of Taxes for Straddle Period Tax Returns.  Pre-Closing Taxes for Straddle Period Tax Returns shall be calculated as though the taxable period of Company terminated as of the Closing Date; provided, however, that any real, personal and intangible property Taxes and any other Taxes levied on an annual or other periodic basis of Company or any of its Subsidiaries for a Straddle Period shall be allocated on a per diem basis based on the number of days during the Straddle Period ending with and including the Closing Date and number of days during the Straddle Period commencing on the day after the Closing Date.  All Straddle Period Tax Returns shall be prepared, and all determinations necessary to give effect to the foregoing allocations shall be made, in a manner consistent with the prior practice of Company.

(iii)       a breach of any covenant or agreement by Company at or prior to the Closing contained in this Agreement;

(iv)       any and all Tax claims resulting from, arising out of or relating to:  (a) any Taxes imposed on Company with respect to any Pre-Closing Tax Period and any Pre-Closing Taxes attributable to any Straddle Period; (b) any and all Taxes of any Person (other than Company) imposed on Company as a transferee or successor under Law or pursuant to any Law with similar effect as a result of any transaction occurring before the Closing; and (c) the Transfer Taxes for which the Sellers are liable pursuant to Section 5.4(b);

(v)        any claims for indemnification made by any officer, director, employee or any other Person (other than an Indemnified Party) against Company or its Subsidiaries for the period prior to Closing to the extent not satisfied by the D&O Tail Policy;

45


 

(vi)       any claims for any expenses, costs, liabilities or other Losses relating to Company’s operations, closure, dissolution and/or winding up of its Costa Rican subsidiary; and/or

(vii)      any claims relating to the Company Stock Option Plans.

(c)        Limitations on Indemnity.  The indemnification provided for in Sections 9.2(a) and (b) above is subject to the following limitations:

(i)         The Sellers shall have no indemnification obligation in respect of claims made pursuant to Sections 9.2(a)(i) and (ii) and 9.2(b)(i) and (ii) unless the Indemnified Party gives written notice of the claim to the Sellers’ Agent in accordance with the procedures set forth herein on or before the Applicable Limitation Date.  If the Indemnified Party delivers such written notice of a claim on or prior to the Applicable Limitation Date, then the Sellers’ indemnification obligation in respect of the claims described in the notice shall survive the Applicable Limitation Date, notwithstanding that the representations and warranties on which such claim is based have expired.

(ii)        No claim for indemnification shall be brought under Sections 9.2(a)(i) and 9.2(b)(i) until the total of the aggregate amount of all Losses (including those Losses from dollar one of the Individual Threshold (as defined below) and not only those Losses above $5,000) under Sections 9.2(a) and 9.2(b) are greater than one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) (the “Aggregate Threshold”), at which point the Indemnifying Parties will be obligated to indemnify the Indemnified Parties for all such Losses (including those Losses from dollar one of the Aggregate Threshold and not only those Losses above $100,000); provided that the amount of any individual claim (or series of related claims) for Losses under Sections 9.2(a)(i) and 9.2(b)(i) shall not be counted toward the Aggregate Threshold until such Losses exceed $5,000 (the “Individual Threshold”, and together with the Aggregate Threshold, the “Thresholds”).

(iii)       For any Loss prior to the Indemnity Holdback Release Date (as defined below), and subject to the limitations described in this Section 9, (1) for Losses arising under Sections 9.2(a)(i) or 9.2(b)(i), the Indemnified Parties shall seek to recover one hundred percent (100%) of such Losses solely from the Indemnity Holdback Amount, provided that in the event of a Third Party Claim, the Company is sued (or threatened to be sued), and incurs the Loss and settles the Third Party Claim, then the Company shall pay such settlement of the Third Party Claim with amounts from the Indemnity Holdback Amount, (2) for Losses arising under Sections 9.2(a)(ii) or 9.2(a)(iii), Buyer shall deduct from the Indemnity Holdback Amount such Seller’s Pro Rata Share of the Losses, and to the extent the Losses exceed such Pro Rata Share, the Indemnified Parties shall seek to recover the balance of the Losses only from the breaching Seller or Founder, up to the amount of proceeds received by such breaching Seller or Founder, and (3) for Losses arising under Sections 9.2(b)(ii) through (vii), the Indemnified Parties shall seek to recover 100% of such Losses from the Indemnity Holdback Amount, and in the event the entire Indemnity Holdback Amount has been paid to Buyer, or released to Sellers as provided for herein, then the Indemnified Parties shall be entitled to recover seventy percent (70%) of such remaining Losses from the Sellers and the remaining thirty percent (30%) of such Losses (the “Unrecovered Losses”) from Founders pursuant to Section 5.1(d) of the Shareholders Agreement, up to the amount of proceeds received by such Seller or Founder hereunder or thereunder, provided that in the event

46


 

of a Third Party Claim, the Company is sued (or threatened to be sued), incurs the Loss and settles the Third Party Claim, then the Company shall pay such Third Party Claim with amounts from the Indemnity Holdback Amount.

(iv)       The aggregate Liability of the Indemnifying Parties for Losses pursuant to Section 9.2(b)(i) and Section 9.2(a)(i) for which the Indemnifying Parties shall be required to provide indemnification hereunder shall not exceed the Indemnity Holdback Amount (the “Cap”), and the Indemnity Holdback Amount shall be the sole source of payment for such Losses; provided, however, that the aggregate Liability of the Indemnifying Parties for Losses under this Section 9 other than those pursuant to Sections 9.2(b)(i) or Section 9.2(a)(i), shall be capped at such Sellers’ Pro Rata Share of the total Purchase Price.

(v)        Solely for purposes of determining and calculating the amount of Losses incurred under this Agreement (but not for determining whether or not a breach of a representation or warranty has occurred), all representations and warranties set forth herein or in the Disclosure Schedules that are qualified by reference to “material,” “materially,” “Material Adverse Effect” or any similar term (collectively, “Materiality Qualifiers”) shall be deemed to have been made without giving effect to such Materiality Qualifiers.

(vi)       Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, Buyer shall not be entitled to be indemnified for any punitive, consequential, special or indirect damages, except in the event of fraud or intentional misconduct.

(vii)      Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, the indemnification limits set forth in this Section 9.2(c) shall not apply in the event of fraud or intentional misconduct (which means that the Cap and the Thresholds will not apply in the event of fraud or intentional misconduct), and the Applicable Limitation Date also shall continue indefinitely in such event(s).

(viii)     Notwithstanding anything to contrary herein, Buyer can recover directly from Founders all Losses arising from or relating to Founders’ breaches of their own representations, warranties, agreements and covenants hereunder in accordance with Section 9.2(a), such Losses to be (A) deducted from amounts otherwise payable to Founders under the Shareholders Agreement (if prior to the Closing of SHA Transactions under the Shareholders Agreement, as defined thereunder) or (B) recoverable from the Founders if after the Closing of SHA Transactions under the Shareholders Agreement.

(d)        Any Indemnified Party’s right to indemnification, reimbursement or any other remedy arising from or in connection with the representations, warranties, covenants, agreements or obligations contained in this Agreement (including the Disclosure Schedules) or any Ancillary Agreement or writing delivered pursuant to this Agreement shall not be affected by (a) any investigation conducted by or on behalf of such Person with respect to the accuracy or inaccuracy of or compliance with any such representation, warranty, covenant, agreement or obligation or (b) any knowledge acquired (or capable of being acquired) by a party (or any of its Affiliates, directors, officers, stockholders, owners, employees, representatives, agents or advisors) at any time with respect to the accuracy or inaccuracy of or compliance with any such representation, warranty, covenant, agreement or obligation.

47


 

9.3       Procedures.

(a)        Buyer shall reasonably promptly, following the incurrence of any Losses or discovery of any potential Losses by an Indemnified Party in the belief that that such Indemnified Party is or will be entitled to indemnification pursuant to this Section 9, notify the Sellers’ Agent (the “Notice”) of the Loss (or potential Loss) and a description of the amount, if then known, (“Claimed Amount”) for which the Indemnified Party may be entitled to indemnification to this Section 9.  Subject to the survival periods and time limitations on making claims hereunder set forth in Section 9, the failure of an Indemnified Party to give timely notice hereunder shall not affect rights to indemnification hereunder, except to the extent (and only to the extent) that Indemnifying Parties are actually and materially prejudiced by such failure.

(b)        Within thirty (30) days after delivery of a Notice, the Sellers’ Agent shall deliver to the Indemnified Party a written response in which Sellers’ Agent shall on behalf of the Indemnifying Parties:  (A) agree that the Indemnified Party is entitled to receive all of the Claimed Amount (in which case such response shall be accompanied by payment by the Indemnifying Parties to the Indemnified Party of the Claimed Amount, by check or by wire transfer, as applicable), (B) agree that the Indemnified Party is entitled to receive part, but not all, of the Claimed Amount (such part, the “Agreed Amount”) (in which case such response shall be accompanied by a payment by the Indemnifying Party to the Indemnified Party of the Agreed Amount, by check or by wire transfer, as applicable, and the remainder of the Claimed Amount shall be resolved in accordance with the following provisions in this Section 9.3), or (C) contest that the Indemnified Party is entitled to receive any of the Claimed Amount.  If Sellers’ Agent in such response contests the payment of all or part of the Claimed Amount, the Sellers’ Agent and the Indemnified Party shall use good faith efforts to resolve such dispute without recourse to litigation.  If such dispute is not resolved within sixty (60) days following the delivery by the Indemnifying Party of such contest notice, the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party shall each have the right to submit the dispute arising to any court of competent jurisdiction in accordance with Section 10.11.

(c)        All claims for indemnification made under this Agreement resulting from, related to or arising out of a third-party claim (a “Third Party Claim”) against an Indemnified Party shall be made in accordance with the following procedures.  Any Indemnified Party shall reasonably promptly, but in any event within fifteen (15) Business Days after the Indemnified Party receives written notice of such Third Party Claim, notify in writing the Sellers’ Agent of such claim and provide all material available information regarding such claim (but the failure of an Indemnified Party to give timely notice hereunder shall not affect rights to indemnification hereunder, except to the extent (and only to the extent) that Indemnifying Parties are actually and materially prejudiced by such failure).  If the indemnification sought pursuant hereto involves a Third Party Claim, Buyer shall be entitled to handle the defense of such Third Party Claim at the Sellers’ cost, with counsel selected by Buyer and reasonably acceptable to the Sellers’ Agent. Buyer shall have the right to settle, adjust or compromise a Third Party Claim (including payment of fees of counsel and other experts) subject to the Sellers’ Agent’s consent (which shall not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned). Such settlement, adjustment or compromise shall be conclusive evidence of the amount of Losses incurred by the Indemnified Party in connection with such Third Party Claim.

48


 

(d)        The amount of any and all Losses under this Section 9 shall be determined net of any amounts actually recovered by an Indemnified Party or any of such Indemnified Party’s Affiliates under or pursuant to any insurance policy (net of any increase in premiums resulting from the payment of such insurance proceeds), indemnity, reimbursement arrangement or Contract pursuant to which or under which such Indemnified Party or such Indemnified Party’s Affiliates is a party or has rights, provided, that this Section 9.3(d) shall not be construed to require any Person to obtain any insurance coverage or to make a claim under any insurance coverage.

(e)        The Sellers’ Agent will act on behalf of the Sellers for all purposes (other than with respect to any obligations to make, or rights to receive, payments) under this Section 9.

9.4       Treatment of Indemnification Payments and Indemnification Calculations.  Except as otherwise required by applicable Law, any indemnification payments made by the Sellers pursuant to this Agreement shall be treated for all Tax purposes by all parties as an adjustment to the Purchase Price (as determined for U.S. federal income Tax purposes).

9.5       Limitation of Remedies.  Each Party acknowledges and agrees that, from and after the Closing, except in the case of claims arising out of, relating to, resulting from, based upon, by reason of or in connection with fraud or intentional misconduct, its sole and exclusive remedy with respect to any and all claims for breaches of this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby shall be pursuant to the indemnification provisions set forth in this Section 9.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing contained herein shall impair the right of any party to compel specific performance by another party of its obligations or seek injunctive relief under this Agreement.

9.6       Indemnity Holdback; Manner of Indemnification. To provide a fund against which Buyer may assert claims of indemnification under this Section 9 (an “Indemnification Claim”), the Indemnity Holdback Amount shall be held and distributed in accordance with this Section 9 and each Third Party Claim made by Buyer shall be made only in accordance with this Section 9.  Any interest or other income paid on the Indemnity Holdback Amount shall be added to the Indemnity Holdback Amount and become a part thereof and available for satisfaction of Indemnification Claims made by an Indemnified Party.  Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the entire amount of the Indemnity Holdback Amount shall be available to an Indemnified Party for satisfaction of any Losses it may suffer that are subject to indemnification pursuant to this Section 9, regardless of whether or not such Losses were caused by any of Company, a Seller, a Founder or any of their Affiliates and irrespective of whether Indemnification Claims under this Section 9 were first asserted by an Indemnified Party against one or more of such Persons.  On the date that is fifteen (15) months following the Closing Date (the “Indemnity Holdback Release Date”), any amounts then remaining of the Indemnity Holdback Amount shall be distributed to Sellers (based upon their Pro Rata Share), minus the sum of (i) the amounts to which Buyer is entitled, but has not yet received pursuant to this Section 9 and (ii) the amounts of any unresolved claims for indemnification pending as of such date.  With respect to any unresolved claim that is a Third Party Claim, if the Indemnified Parties have settled such Third Party Claim, then the Indemnified Parties shall first recover 100% of such Losses from the amount withheld in the Indemnity Holdback Amount to the extent of amounts left in the Indemnity Holdback Amount.

49


 

To the extent amounts remain after resolution of all unresolved claims after the Indemnity Holdback Release Date, such remaining amounts shall be promptly distributed by Buyer to Sellers (based upon their Pro Rata Share).

9.7       Matters Relating to the Sellers’ Agent.

(a)        Appointment of the Sellers’ Agent.  By virtue of the execution of this Agreement, each Seller and Founder hereby appoints Outforce LLC as the “Sellers’ Agent” as the representative, agent and attorney-in-fact of each of the Sellers, with full power of substitution or resubstitution, to act on behalf of the Sellers with respect to such Seller’s Company Shares, this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements, and the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby in accordance with the terms and provisions of this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements, and to act on behalf of the Sellers in any litigation involving this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements, to do or refrain from doing all such further acts and things, and to execute all such documents and ancillary agreements as the Sellers’ Agent shall deem necessary or appropriate in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby, including the power:

(i)         to act for the Sellers with regard to matters pertaining to Section 2,  Section 9 and Section 10 of this Agreement;

(ii)        to execute and deliver all amendments, waivers, ancillary agreements, certificates and documents that the Sellers’ Agent deems necessary or appropriate in connection with the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, including amendments to this Agreement;

(iii)       to receive funds, make payments of funds, and give receipts for funds;

(iv)       to receive funds for the payment of expenses of the Sellers and apply such funds in payment for such expenses;

(v)        to hold back funds from the Purchase Price to satisfy any potential expenses of the Sellers’ Agent in performing its duties hereunder (the “Expense Holdback”);

(vi)       to enforce the rights of the Sellers under the terms and provisions of this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements;

(vii)      to give and receive notices and communications to or from the Buyer (on behalf of itself or any other Indemnified Party) relating to this Agreement or any of the transactions and other matters contemplated hereby;

(viii)     to assert, negotiate, enter into settlements and compromises of, and agree to arbitration and comply with Orders and judgments of courts and awards of arbitrators with respect to, any claim for indemnification asserted on behalf of or against the Sellers under this Section 9 or any other claim by any Indemnified Party against the Sellers or by the Sellers against any Indemnified Party or any dispute between any Indemnified Party and the

50


 

Sellers, in each case relating to this Agreement, the Ancillary Agreements or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby;

(ix)       to take any other actions specified in or contemplated by this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements; and

(x)        to do or refrain from doing any further act or deed on behalf of the Sellers that the Sellers’ Agent deems necessary or appropriate in its sole discretion relating to the subject matter of this Agreement as fully and completely as such Sellers could do if personally present.

The Sellers’ Agent hereby accepts such appointment.  The Person serving as the Sellers’ Agent may be removed or replaced from time to time (or if such Person resigns from its position as the Sellers’ Agent then a successor may be appointed) by consent of Sellers who received, in the aggregate, more than 50.1% of the amount of cash payable to all Sellers pursuant to this Agreement in respect of the Company Shares owned by the Sellers immediately prior to the Closing.

(b)        Rights and Obligations of Sellers’ Agent.  The appointment of the Sellers’ Agent to act on behalf of the Sellers shall be deemed coupled with an interest and shall be irrevocable, and the Buyer, Company, Founders and any other Person may conclusively and absolutely rely, without inquiry, upon any action of the Sellers’ Agent in all matters referred to herein.  After the Closing, all notices required to be made or delivered by the Buyer to the Sellers shall be made to the Sellers’ Agent for the benefit of the Sellers and shall discharge in full all notice requirements of the Buyer to the Sellers with respect thereto.  The Sellers’ Agent shall act for the Sellers on all of the matters set forth in this Agreement in the manner the Sellers’ Agent believes to be in the best interest of the Sellers and consistent with the obligations of the Sellers under this Agreement, but the Sellers’ Agent shall not be responsible or liable to the Sellers for any Loss or damages which the Sellers may suffer by the performance of the Sellers’ Agent’s duties under this Agreement, other than Loss or damages arising from the Sellers’ Agent’s gross negligence, willful misconduct, bad faith or fraud in the performance of such duties under this Agreement and in no event will any such losses or damages include special, indirect or consequential losses or damages of any kind whatsoever (including lost profits).  The Sellers’ Agent shall not be required to have any duties or responsibilities to the Sellers except those expressly set forth in this Agreement, and no implied covenants, functions, responsibilities, duties, obligations or Liabilities shall be read into this Agreement or shall otherwise exist against the Sellers’ Agent.  No provision of this Agreement will require the Sellers’ Agent to expend or risk its own funds or otherwise incur any financial liability in the exercise or performance of any of its powers, rights, duties or privileges under this Agreement on behalf of any Seller.

(c)        Reliance by Sellers’ Agent.  With respect to the Sellers, the Sellers’ Agent shall be entitled to rely, and shall be fully protected in relying, upon any statements furnished to it by the Sellers, Founders, the Buyer, or Company, or any other evidence reasonably deemed by the Sellers’ Agent to be reliable, and the Sellers’ Agent shall be entitled to act on (and shall not be liable to the Sellers for any actions taken in reliance upon) the advice of counsel selected by it.

(d)        Expenses of Sellers’ Agent.

51


 

(i)         The Sellers’ Agent may establish a reserve account (the “Reserve Account”) on account of all Sellers in accordance with their Pro Rata Share, as set forth on Exhibit A, in an aggregate amount equal to One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000) (the amount so established, the “Reserve Amount”) to pay costs, fees and expenses incurred by or for the benefit of the Sellers on or after the Closing in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

(ii)        The Sellers’ Agent shall be entitled to retain counsel and to incur such expenses (including court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses) as the Sellers’ Agent deems to be necessary or appropriate in connection with its performance of its obligations under this Agreement.  All fees and expenses incurred by the Sellers’ Agent in performing its duties shall be borne by the Sellers in accordance with their respective Pro Rata Share (severally as to each Seller only and not jointly as to or with any other Seller).

(iii)       The Reserve Account will be retained by the Sellers’ Agent for such period of time as the Sellers’ Agent shall determine in its sole discretion.  The Sellers will not receive any interest or earnings on the Reserve Account and irrevocably transfer and assign to the Sellers’ Agent any ownership right that they may otherwise have had in any such interest or earnings. The Sellers’ Agent will not be liable for any loss of principal of the Reserve Account other than as a result of its gross negligence or willful misconduct. The Sellers’ Agent will hold these funds separate from its corporate funds, will not use these funds for its operating expenses or any other corporate purposes and will not voluntarily make these funds available to its creditors in the event of bankruptcy.

(iv)       To the extent amounts placed into the Reserve Account are not used, or in the judgment of the Sellers’ Agent are not expected to be used, to pay fees and expenses incurred in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement including costs associated with any Indemnification Claims, such remaining amount, together with all earnings thereon, shall be returned to the Buyer, who shall arrange to distribute such remaining Reserve Amount to the Sellers reasonably promptly in proportion to their respective Pro Rata Share.  The Sellers’ Agent shall have sole and exclusive authority to disburse and pay amounts placed into the Reserve Account consistent with the provisions of this Agreement.

(e)        Indemnification.  Each Seller shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Sellers’ Agent from and against any and all losses, liabilities, damages, claims, penalties, fines, forfeitures, actions, fees, costs and expenses (including the fees and expenses of counsel and experts and their staffs and all expense of document location, duplication and shipment) (collectively, “Agent Losses”) arising out of or in connection with the Sellers’ Agent’s  execution and performance of this Agreement and any agreements ancillary hereto, in each case as such Agent Loss is suffered or incurred; provided, that in the event that any such Agent Loss is finally adjudicated to have been directly caused by the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Sellers’ Agent, the Sellers’ Agent will reimburse the Sellers the amount of such indemnified Agent Loss to the extent attributable to such gross negligence or willful misconduct. If not paid directly to the Sellers’ Agent by the Sellers, the Sellers’ Agent shall be entitled to seek any remedies available to it at Law or otherwise. In no event will the Sellers’ Agent be required to advance its own funds on behalf of the Sellers or otherwise against the Sellers. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, any restrictions or limitations on liability or

52


 

indemnification obligations of the Sellers set forth elsewhere in this Agreement are not intended to be applicable to the indemnities provided to the Sellers’ Agent under this section. The foregoing indemnities will survive the Closing, the resignation or removal of the Sellers’ Agent or the termination of this Agreement.  Each Seller, by its execution of this Agreement, shall authorize the Sellers’ Agent to apply proceeds otherwise distributable to the Sellers pursuant to this Agreement to satisfy any of the Sellers’ obligations under this Section 9.7.

(f)        Survival.  The agreements in this Section 9.7 shall survive termination of this Agreement.

SECTION 10. MISCELLANEOUS.

10.1     Amendment.  This Agreement may not be amended or modified except (a) by an instrument in writing signed by or on behalf of Sellers’ Agent, Buyer and Company or (b) by a waiver in accordance with Section 10.1(a).

(a)        Waiver.  Any Party to this Agreement may waive compliance or performance of any provision of this Agreement that is intended for the benefit of such waiving Party.  Any such extension or waiver shall be valid only if set forth in a writing executed by the Party to be bound thereby.  Any waiver of any term or condition shall not be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach or waiver of the same term or condition or as a waiver of any other term or condition of this Agreement.  The failure of any Party to assert any of its rights under this Section 10.1 shall not constitute a waiver of any of such rights.  No course of dealing between or among any Persons having any interest in this Agreement shall be deemed effective to modify, amend or discharge any part of this Agreement or any rights or obligations of any Party under or by reason of this Agreement.  All rights and remedies existing under this Agreement are cumulative to, and not exclusive of, any rights or remedies otherwise available.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, after the Closing, the Sellers’ Agent can make waivers on behalf of the Sellers.

10.2     Specific Performance.  Company and Sellers agree and acknowledges that Company’s business is unique and recognize and affirm that in the event of a breach of this Agreement by such Person, money damages may be inadequate and Buyer may have no adequate remedy at Law.  Accordingly, Company and Sellers agree that Buyer shall have the right, in addition to any other rights and remedies existing in its favor, to enforce its rights and Company’s obligations hereunder not only by an action or actions for damages but also by an action or actions for equitable relief, including injunction and specific performance.  If any such action is brought by Buyer to enforce this Agreement, Company and Sellers hereby waive the defense that there is an adequate remedy at Law or the requirement for the posting of any bond or similar security.

10.3     Expenses.  Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, each of the Parties hereto shall pay all of its own fees, costs and expenses (including fees, costs and expenses of legal counsel, investment bankers, brokers or other representatives and consultants and appraisal fees, costs and expenses) incurred in connection with the negotiation of this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements, and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby.

10.6     Severability.  Whenever possible, each provision of this Agreement shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable Law, but if any provision of this Agreement is held to be prohibited by or invalid under applicable Law or public policy, such provision shall be ineffective only to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity, and all other terms of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect for so long as the economic or legal substance of the transactions contemplated hereby is not affected in any manner materially adverse to any Party.

10.7     Construction.  The Parties have participated jointly in the negotiation and drafting of this Agreement and the other agreements, documents and instruments executed and delivered in connection herewith with sophisticated counsel.  In the event an ambiguity or question of intent or interpretation arises, this Agreement and the agreements, documents and instruments executed and delivered in connection herewith shall be construed as if drafted jointly by the Parties and no presumption or burden of proof shall arise favoring or disfavoring any Party by virtue of the authorship of any provisions of this Agreement and the agreements, documents and instruments executed and delivered in connection herewith.  The Parties intend that each representation, warranty and covenant contained herein shall have independent significance.  If any Party has breached any representation, warranty or covenant contained herein in any respect, the fact that there exists another representation, warranty or covenant relating to the same subject matter (regardless of the relative levels of specificity) that the Party has not breached shall not detract from or mitigate the fact that the Party is in breach of the first representation, warranty or covenant.  The word “including” shall mean “including without limitation” regardless of whether such words are included in some contexts but not others. The use in this Agreement of the masculine pronoun in reference to a party hereto shall be deemed to include the feminine or neuter, as the context may require.

10.8     Captions.  The captions used in this Agreement are for convenience of reference only and do not constitute a part of this Agreement and shall not be deemed to limit, characterize or in any way affect any provision of this Agreement, and all provisions of this Agreement shall be enforced and construed as if no caption had been used in this Agreement.

10.9     Entire Agreement.  This Agreement, the Schedules identified in this Agreement and the other documents referred to herein contain the entire agreement between the Parties and supersede any prior understandings, agreements or representations by or between the Parties, written or oral, which may have related to the subject matter hereof in any way.

10.10   Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed in two or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original but all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same instrument.

10.11   Governing Law; Exclusive Jurisdiction; Waiver of Jury Trial.

(a)        This Agreement and any claim, controversy or dispute arising out of or related to this Agreement, any of the transactions contemplated hereby, the relationship of the parties, and/or the interpretation and enforcement of the rights and duties of the parties, whether arising in contract, tort, equity or otherwise, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the Laws of the State of Delaware (including in respect of the statute of

55


 

limitations or other limitations period applicable to any such claim controversy or dispute), without regard to any applicable principles of conflicts of Law that might require the application of the Laws of any other jurisdiction.
