transferee to the Company. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, both the Company and the Initial Member shall be entitled to treat the transferor of a Membership Interest as the absolute owner thereof in all respects, and shall
incur no liability for distributions of cash or other property made in good faith to it, until such time as a written assignment or other evidence of the consummation of a Transfer that conforms to the requirements of this Section 12.1
and is reasonably satisfactory to the Initial Member has been received by the Company. The effective date of any Transfer permitted under this Agreement shall be the close of business on the day of receipt thereof by the Company.
SECTION 12.2 Restrictions on Expulsion. No Member shall be
expelled as a Member by the other Members or the Manager under any circumstances.

liabilities of the Company or any other Member, whether arising in contract, tort or otherwise, which debts, obligations and liabilities shall be solely the debts, obligations and liabilities of the Company or such other Member, as applicable.
SECTION 14.1 Exculpation and Indemnification of Members. (a) No Member of the Company shall be personally liable to the Company or its members
for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a member for any claims or demands whatsoever. If Delaware law hereafter is amended, then, in addition to the elimination of liability provided by the preceding sentence, the liability of each
Member shall be eliminated or limited to the fullest extent provided or permitted by the amended Act. Any repeal or modification of this paragraph (a) shall not adversely affect any right or protection of a member under this paragraph (a), as
in effect immediately prior to such repeal or modification, with respect to any liability that would have accrued, but for this paragraph (a), prior to such repeal or modification.
(b) The Company shall, to the fullest extent permitted by Delaware law as in effect from time to time, indemnify any Person
against all liability and expense (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by reason of the fact that such Person is or was a Member or Manager of the Company or, while serving a Member or the Manager of the Company, such Person is or was serving
at the request of the Company as a Member, partner or trustee of, or in any similar managerial or fiduciary position of, or as an employee or agent of, another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust, association, or other entity. Expenses
(including attorneys’ fees) incurred in defending an action, suit, or proceeding may be paid by the Company in advance of the final disposition of such action, suit, or proceeding to the full extent and under the circumstances permitted by
Delaware law as determined by the members of the Company. The Company may purchase and maintain insurance on behalf of any Person who is or was a Member, Manager, employee, fiduciary, or agent of the Company against any liability asserted against
and incurred by such Person in any such capacity or arising out of such Person’s position, whether or not the Company would have the power to indemnify against such liability under the provisions of this paragraph (b). The indemnification
provided by this paragraph (b) shall not be deemed exclusive of any other rights to which those indemnified may be entitled under the this Agreement or the certificate of formation of the Company, any agreement, vote of members, statute or
otherwise, and shall inure to the benefit of their heirs, successors, executors, and administrators. The provisions of this paragraph (b) shall not be deemed to preclude the Company from indemnifying other persons from similar or other expenses
and liabilities as the members may determine in a specific instance or by resolution of general application.
(c) The indemnification provided by the this Agreement will continue as to a person who has ceased to be a member or the manager of the Company and will

SECTION 15.1 Duration and Dissolution. (a) The Company shall be dissolved, and its affairs shall be wound up
upon the first to occur of the following: (i) subject to the provisions of Section 16.9, the termination of the legal existence of the last remaining member of
the Company or the occurrence of any other event which terminates the continued membership of the last remaining member of the Company in the Company unless
the Company is continued without dissolution in a manner permitted by this Agreement or the Act or (ii) the entry of a decree of judicial dissolution under Section 18-802 of the Act. Upon the occurrence of any event that causes the last

or its nominee or designee, as the case may be, as a substitute member of the Company, effective as of the occurrence of the event that terminated the continued membership of such member in the Company.
(b) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the bankruptcy (as
defined in Sections 18-101(1) and 18-304 of the Act) of a Member or a Special Member shall not cause such Member or Special Member, respectively, to cease to be a member of the Company and upon the occurrence of such an event, the Company shall
continue without dissolution.
(c) In the event of dissolution
of the Company, the Company shall conduct only such activities as are necessary to wind up its affairs (including the sale of the assets of the Company in an orderly manner), and the assets of the Company shall be applied in the manner, and in the

the Company shall be treated as an entity the existence of which is disregarded as separate from such Member for U.S. federal income tax purposes. In the event the Company has more than one Member, it is intended that the Company shall be treated as
a partnership that is not a publicly traded partnership for U.S. federal income tax purposes. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, neither the Company nor any Member shall take any action inconsistent with such intentions.
SECTION 16.3 Amendments. This Agreement may be amended only by written instrument executed by the
Initial Member and provided that, to the extent required under Section 8.4 hereof, the Independent Manager shall have consented to such amendment.

Law. This Agreement shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Delaware, without giving effect to conflicts of law principles thereof.
SECTION 16.6 Separability of Provisions. Each provision of this Agreement shall be considered separable and if for
any reason any provision or provisions herein are determined to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal under any existing or future law, such invalidity, unenforceability or illegality shall not impair the operation of or affect those portions of this
Agreement which are valid, enforceable and legal.

dissolution upon (i) an assignment by such Member of all of its limited liability company interest in the Company and the admission of the transferee, or the resignation of such Member and the admission of an additional member of the Company),

Member and shall continue the Company without dissolution.
No Special Member may resign from the Company or transfer its rights as Special Member unless (i) a successor Special Member has been admitted to the Company as Special Member by executing a counterpart to this Agreement, and (ii) such
successor has also accepted its appointment as Independent Manager pursuant to Section 8.3; provided, however, the Special Members shall automatically cease to be members of the Company upon the admission to the Company of
a substitute Member, appointed by the personal representative of the last remaining Member.
