REORGANIZATION AGREEMENT

        This REORGANIZATION AGREEMENT (together with all Schedules and Exhibits hereto, this "Agreement"), dated as of June 8, 2017, is entered into by and between FIDELITY NATIONAL FINANCIAL, INC., a Delaware corporation ("FNF"), Black Knight Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("BKHI") and a direct, wholly-owned Subsidiary of FNF, and New BKH Corp., a Delaware corporation ("New BKH") and a direct, wholly-owned Subsidiary of BKHI.

        WHEREAS, FNF, New BKH, Black Knight Financial Services, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("BKFS"), Black Knight Holdco Corp., a Delaware corporation ("New Black Knight"), New BKH Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Merger Sub One"), and BKFS Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Merger Sub Two"), have entered into that certain Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of the date hereof (the "Merger Agreement"), pursuant to which the parties thereto intend to effectuate the New BKH Merger and BKFS Merger (each as defined in the Merger Agreement) resulting in New BKH and BKFS each becoming Subsidiaries of New Black Knight;

        WHEREAS immediately prior to the consummation of the Mergers (as defined in the Merger Agreement), the parties hereto desire to effect the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, including the Separation, subject to the conditions described herein;

        WHEREAS the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, including the Separation, have been approved by the boards of directors of FNF (the "FNF Board"), BKHI and New BKH;

        WHEREAS this Agreement constitutes a "plan of reorganization" within the meaning of Section 368 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code"), and the Treasury Regulations promulgated thereunder;

        WHEREAS certain contributions made by FNF to BKHI and the Spin-Off are intended to qualify as a tax-free reorganization under Sections 368(a) and 355 of the Code, and are expected to accomplish certain corporate business purposes of FNF, BKHI, and New BKH (which corporate business purposes are substantially unrelated to U.S. federal tax matters); and

        WHEREAS capitalized terms used herein and not defined in the accompanying text have the meanings ascribed thereto in Section 8.1(a) or in the text referenced in Section 8.1(b).

        NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing and the mutual representations, warranties, covenants and agreements contained herein, the parties to this Agreement hereby agree as follows:


ARTICLE I
REORGANIZATION AND DISTRIBUTION

        Section 1.1.    Separation.     (a) In accordance with and subject to the provisions of this Agreement and the Delaware General Corporation Law, on the Closing Date, the parties will take, and as applicable will cause their respective Subsidiaries to take, all actions that are necessary or appropriate to accomplish each of the steps set forth in the separation plan attached hereto as Schedule 1.1 (the transactions contemplated by such steps, collectively, the "Separation"), in the order set forth therein, as soon as practicable after the conditions thereto have been satisfied or, to the extent waivable, waived.

            (b)   All of the steps of the Separation are intended to be part of the same plan of reorganization even though there may be delays between certain of the steps.

        Section 1.2.    Reorganization Documents.     All documents and instruments used to effect the Separation and otherwise to comply with this Agreement will be in the form and substance reasonably satisfactory to FNF, New BKH, any additional signatories thereto, as applicable, and BKFS (in the case

3


of BKFS, following approval thereof by the Special Committee (as such term is defined in the Merger Agreement)).

        Section 1.3.    Qualification as Reorganization.     For U.S. federal income tax purposes, (1) the Separation (together with all contributions and distributions contemplated by Schedule 1.1 to occur in connection therewith) is generally intended to be undertaken in a manner so that no gain or loss is recognized, (2) the contributions and conversion contemplated in steps 1 and 2 of Schedule 1.1 are intended to qualify as a tax-free reorganization under 368(a)(1)(F) of the Code and (3) certain contributions made by FNF to BKHI and the Spin-Off are intended to qualify as a tax-free reorganization under Sections 368(a) and 355 of the Code and a distribution to which Sections 355 and 361 of the Code applies, respectively.

This Agreement has been, and each of the other Transaction Agreements, when executed and delivered, will be, duly executed and delivered by FNF and such Subsidiaries, as applicable, and each is, or will be, a valid and binding obligation of FNF or such Subsidiaries, as applicable, enforceable against FNF or such Subsidiaries, as applicable, in accordance with its terms.

            (b)   Neither the execution and delivery of this Agreement and the other Transaction Agreements by FNF or its Subsidiaries, as applicable, nor the consummation by FNF or its Subsidiaries, as applicable, of the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, nor compliance by FNF or its Subsidiaries, as applicable, with any of the terms or provisions of this Agreement and the other Transaction Agreements, will (i) conflict with or violate any provision of FNF's certificate of incorporation and by-laws or any of the organizational documents of any Subsidiary of FNF, (ii) violate any Law, judgment, writ or injunction of any Governmental Authority applicable to FNF or its Subsidiaries or any of their respective properties or assets, (iii) violate, conflict with, result in the loss of any benefit under, constitute a default (or an event which, with notice or lapse of time, or both, would constitute a default) under, result in the termination of or a right of termination or cancellation under, accelerate the performance required by, or result in the creation of any Lien upon any of the respective properties or assets of, FNF or any of its Subsidiaries under, any of the terms, conditions or provisions of any Contract or permit to which FNF or any of its Subsidiaries is a party, or by which they or any of their respective properties or assets may be bound or affected, or (iv) result in the exercisability of any right to purchase or acquire any material asset of FNF or any of its Subsidiaries, except, in the case of clauses (ii) and (iii), for such violations, conflicts, losses, defaults, terminations, cancellations, accelerations or Liens as, individually or in the aggregate, would not reasonably be expected to be material to FNF or to delay, impede or prevent the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or the Mergers.

ARTICLE IV
Indemnification

        Section 4.1.    Indemnification by New BKH.     New BKH hereby covenants and agrees, on the terms and subject to the limitations set forth in this Agreement, from and after the New BKH Effective Time, to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the FNF Entities from and against any Losses incurred by the FNF Entities to the extent arising out of or relating to the assets and businesses owned or operated by the New BKH Entities before and after the Closing, including any Losses to the extent resulting from any Liability of the New BKH Entities, whether incurred before or after the Closing (except to the extent provided in Section 4.2).

        Section 4.2.    Indemnification by FNF.     FNF hereby covenants and agrees, on the terms and subject to the limitations set forth in this Agreement, from and after the Closing, to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the New BKH Entities from and against any Losses incurred by the New BKH Entities to the extent arising out of or relating to the assets and businesses owned or operated by the FNF Entities before and after the Closing, including any Losses to the extent resulting from any Liability of the FNF Entities, whether incurred before or after the Closing.

        Section 4.3.    Exclusions.     

            (a)   The indemnification provisions set forth in Sections 4.1 and Section 4.2 are not intended to cover any Losses incurred by any New BKH Entity or any FNF Entity pursuant to any Contract in effect after the New BKH Effective Time between any FNF Entity, on the one hand, and any New BKH Entity, on the other hand.

            (b)   In no event will any Indemnitor be liable to any Indemnitee under Section 4.1 or 4.2 for any consequential or punitive damages, provided that the foregoing will not be interpreted to limit indemnification for any such Losses incurred as a result of the assertion by a claimant (other than a New BKH Entity or an FNF Entity) of a Third-Party Claim for consequential or punitive damages.

            (c)   For the avoidance of doubt, the provisions of Section 4.1 and Section 4.2 are not intended to apply to any Loss, claim or Liability to which the provisions of the Tax Matters Agreement are applicable.

        Section 4.4.    Indemnification Procedures.     

            (a)   In connection with any indemnification provided for in this Article IV, the party seeking indemnification (the "Indemnitee") will give the party from which indemnification is sought (the

6


    "Indemnitor") prompt notice whenever it comes to the attention of the Indemnitee that the Indemnitee has suffered or incurred, or may suffer or incur, any Losses for which it is entitled to indemnification under this Article IV, and, if and when known, the facts constituting the basis for such claim and the projected amount of such Losses (which shall not be conclusive as to the amount of such Losses, in each case, in reasonable detail, to the extent known), whether or not involving a Third-Party Claim (as defined below). Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, in the case of any Action commenced by a third party for which indemnification is being sought (a "Third-Party Claim"), such notice will be given no later than ten (10) business days following receipt by the Indemnitee of written notice of such Third-Party Claim. Failure by any Indemnitee to so notify the applicable Indemnitor will not affect the rights of such Indemnitee under this Agreement except solely to the extent that such failure has a material prejudicial effect on the defenses or other rights available to the Indemnitor with respect to such Third Party Claim. The Indemnitee will thereafter deliver to the Indemnitor as promptly as practicable, and in any event within ten business days after Indemnitee's receipt, copies of all notices, court papers and other documents received by the Indemnitee relating to such Third-Party Claim.

            (b)   After receipt of a notice pursuant to Section 4.4(a) with respect to any Third-Party Claim, the Indemnitor will be entitled, if it so elects, to take control of the defense and investigation with respect to such Third-Party Claim and to employ and engage attorneys reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnitee to handle and defend such claim, at the Indemnitor's cost, risk and expense, upon written notice to the Indemnitee of such election. The Indemnitor will not settle any Third-Party Claim that is the subject of indemnification without the written consent of the Indemnitee, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed; provided, however, that, after reasonable notice, the Indemnitor may settle a claim without the Indemnitee's consent if such settlement (A) makes no admission or acknowledgment of Liability or culpability with respect to the Indemnitee, (B) includes a complete release of the Indemnitee and (C) does not seek any relief against the Indemnitee other than the payment of money damages to be borne by the Indemnitor. The Indemnitee will cooperate in all reasonable respects with the Indemnitor and its attorneys in the investigation, trial and defense of any lawsuit or action with respect to such claim and any appeal arising therefrom (including the filing in the Indemnitee's name of appropriate cross-claims and counterclaims). The Indemnitee may, at its own cost, participate in any investigation, trial and defense of any Third-Party Claim controlled by the Indemnitor and any appeal arising therefrom, including participating in the process with respect to the potential settlement or compromise thereof. If the Indemnitee has been advised by its counsel that there may be one or more legal defenses available to the Indemnitee that conflict with those available to, or that are not available to, the Indemnitor ("Separate Legal Defenses"), or that there may be actual or potential differing or conflicting interests between the Indemnitor and the Indemnitee in the conduct of the defense of such Third-Party Claim, the Indemnitee will have the right, at the expense of the Indemnitor, to engage separate counsel reasonably acceptable to the Indemnitor to handle and defend such Third-Party Claim; provided, that, if such Third-Party Claim can be reasonably separated between those portion(s) for which Separate Legal Defenses are available ("Separable Claims") and those for which no Separate Legal Defenses are available, the Indemnitee will instead have the right, at the expense of the Indemnitor, to engage separate counsel reasonably acceptable to the Indemnitor to handle and defend the Separable Claims, and the Indemnitor will not have the right to control the defense or investigation of such Separable Claims (and, in which case, the Indemnitor will have the right to control the defense or investigation of the remaining portion(s) of such Third-Party Claim).

            (c)   If, after receipt of a notice pursuant to Section 4.4(a) with respect to any Third-Party Claim as to which indemnification is available hereunder, the Indemnitor does not undertake to defend any such Third-Party Claim within thirty days of receipt of such notice, as well as during the period prior to the Indemnitor providing notice that it will undertake such defense, the

7


    Indemnitee may, but will have no obligation to, assume its own defense, at the expense of the Indemnitor (including attorneys' fees and costs), it being understood that the Indemnitee's right to indemnification for such Third-Party Claim shall not be adversely affected by its assuming the defense of such Third-Party Claim, and the Indemnitor will be bound by the result obtained with respect thereto by the Indemnitee. The Indemnitee may not settle any Third-Party Claim with respect to which the Indemnitee is entitled to indemnification hereunder without the consent of the Indemnitor, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed, unless (A) the Indemnitor had the right under this Article IV to undertake control of the defense of such Third-Party Claim and failed to do so within thirty days of receipt of such notice pursuant to Section 4.4(a) (or such lesser period as may be required by court proceedings in the event of a litigated matter), or (B) (1) the Indemnitor does not have the right to control the defense of the entirety of such Third-Party Claim pursuant to Section 4.4(b) or (2) the Indemnitor does not have the right to control the defense of any Separable Claim pursuant to Section 4.4(b) (in which case such settlement may only apply to such Separable Claims), the Indemnitee provides reasonable notice to Indemnitor of the settlement, and such settlement (x) makes no admission or acknowledgment of Liability or culpability with respect to the Indemnitor, (y) includes a complete release of the Indemnitor and the Indemnitee and (z) does not seek any relief against the Indemnitee for which the Indemnitor is responsible other than the payment of money damages to be borne by the Indemnitor.

            (d)   In no event will the Indemnitor be liable to any Indemnitee for any special, consequential, indirect, collateral, incidental or punitive damages, however caused and on any theory of liability arising in any way out of this Agreement, whether or not such Indemnitor was advised of the possibility of any such damages; provided, that the foregoing limitations shall not limit a party's indemnification obligations for any Losses incurred by an Indemnitee as a result of the assertion of a Third-Party Claim.

            (e)   The Indemnitor and the Indemnitee shall use commercially reasonable efforts to avoid production of confidential information, and to cause all communications among employees, counsel and others representing any party with respect to a Third-Party Claim to be made so as to preserve any applicable attorney-client or work-product privilege.

            (f)    The Indemnitor shall pay all amounts payable pursuant to this Article IV by wire transfer of immediately available funds, promptly following receipt from an Indemnitee of a bill, together with all accompanying reasonably detailed backup documentation, for any Losses that are the subject of indemnification hereunder, unless the Indemnitor in good faith disputes the amount of such Losses or whether such Losses are covered by the Indemnitor's indemnification obligation in which event the Indemnitor shall promptly so notify the Indemnitee. In any event, the Indemnitor shall pay to the Indemnitee, by wire transfer of immediately available funds, the amount of any Losses for which it is liable hereunder no later than three days following any final determination of the amount of such Losses and the Indemnitor's liability therefor. A "final determination" shall exist when (a) the parties to the dispute have reached an agreement in writing or (b) a court of competent jurisdiction shall have entered a final and non-appealable order or judgment.

            (g)   If the indemnification provided for in this Article IV shall, for any reason, be unavailable or insufficient to hold harmless an Indemnitee in respect of any Losses for which it is entitled to indemnification hereunder, then the Indemnitor shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by such Indemnitee as a result of such Losses, in such proportion as shall be appropriate to reflect the relative benefits received by and the relative fault of the Indemnitor on the one hand and the Indemnitee on the other hand with respect to the matter giving rise to such Losses.

8


            (h)   The remedies provided in this Article IV shall be cumulative and shall not preclude assertion by any Indemnitee of any other rights or the seeking of any and all other remedies against an Indemnitor, subject to Section 4.4(d).

            (i)    For the avoidance of doubt, the provisions of this Article IV are not intended to, and shall not, apply to any Loss, claim or Liability to which the provisions of the Tax Matters Agreement (as defined in the Merger Agreement) are applicable.

            (j)    To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, the Indemnitor will indemnify the Indemnitee against any and all reasonable fees, costs and expenses (including attorneys' fees), incurred in connection with the enforcement of his, her or its rights under this Article IV.

        Section 4.5.    Survival.     The representations and warranties contained herein and in any certificate delivered pursuant to Article VI of this Agreement shall survive the Closing for a period of two (2) years from the date of the Closing; provided that the representations and warranties contained in Sections 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4 and 2.5 shall survive until the expiration of the applicable statute of limitations. The covenants and agreements herein that relate to actions to be taken at or after the Closing shall survive the Closing and the Merger Effective Time.


ARTICLE V
COVENANTS

        Section 5.1.    Further Assurances.     At any time before or after the Closing, each party hereto covenants and agrees to make, execute, acknowledge and deliver such instruments, agreements, consents, assurances and other documents, and to take all such other commercially reasonable actions, as any other party may reasonably request and as may reasonably be required in order to carry out the purposes and intent of this Agreement and to implement the terms hereof; provided that, subject to Section 1.2, the parties hereto shall keep BKFS promptly and reasonably informed of any such actions.

        Section 5.2.    Access to Information.     

            (a)   Upon reasonable notice and subject to applicable Laws relating to the exchange of information, each party hereto shall, and shall cause each of its Subsidiaries to, afford to the other party and its Representatives reasonable access during normal business hours (and, with respect to books and records, the right to copy) to any information in its possession or under its control that the requesting party reasonably needs (i) to comply with reporting, filing or other requirements imposed on the requesting party by a foreign or U.S. federal, state or local judicial, regulatory or administrative authority having jurisdiction over the requesting party or its Subsidiaries, (ii) to enable the requesting party to institute or defend against any action, suit or proceeding in any foreign or U.S. federal, state or local court or (iii) to enable the requesting party to implement the transactions contemplated hereby, including but not limited to performing its obligations under this Agreement and the other Transaction Agreements (provided, however, that any information relating to matters governed by the Tax Matters Agreement shall be subject to the provisions thereof in lieu of this Section 5.2).

            (b)   Any information owned by a party that is provided to another party pursuant to Section 5.2(a) will remain the property of the providing party. The parties agree to cooperate in good faith to take all reasonable efforts to maintain any legal privilege that may attach to any information delivered pursuant to this Section 5.2 or which otherwise comes into the receiving party's possession and control pursuant to this Agreement. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, each party's access to information shall be subject, in all cases, to any bona fide concerns of attorney-client privilege that the other party may reasonably have and any restrictions contained in Contracts to which the other party or any of its Subsidiaries is a party (it being understood that such party shall use its reasonable efforts to provide any such information in a manner that does

9


    not result in such violation). Nothing contained in this Agreement will be construed as granting or conferring license or other rights in any such information.

            (c)   The party requesting any information under this Section 5.2 will reimburse the providing party for the reasonable out of pocket costs, if any, of creating, gathering and copying such information, to the extent that such costs are incurred for the benefit of the requesting party.

        Section 5.3.    Confidentiality.     During the period from the date of this Agreement to the Merger Effective Time, each party shall keep confidential and not make any public announcement or similar publicity concerning this Agreement, the transactions contemplated hereby or the details relating thereto, without first obtaining the prior written consent of the other party; provided, however, that nothing contained herein shall prohibit (i) disclosures required to be made pursuant to the covenants set forth in Section 6.1 of the Merger Agreement, (ii) disclosures required by applicable federal or state securities Laws, or (iii) any party from making any public announcement following reasonable notice to the other parties if such party determines in good faith, on the advice of legal counsel, that such public disclosure is required by applicable Law, in which case the parties shall use reasonable best efforts to coordinate in determining the appropriate form and scope of such disclosure.

        Section 5.4.    Treatment of Payments.     The parties agree to treat all payments made pursuant to this Agreement in accordance with Section 2.8 of the Tax Matters Agreement and to gross-up amounts paid if required in accordance therewith.

        Section 5.5.    Tax Matters.     FNF shall use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain the 355 Tax Opinion and FNF shall not undertake any action which could reasonably be expected to result in the Private Letter Ruling not remaining in full force and effect; provided that, for the avoidance of doubt, FNF shall diligently cooperate with its applicable advisor(s), provide representations reasonably requested by its applicable advisor(s), and if necessary engage an alternative nationally recognized accounting firm or law firm, in each case, in connection with obtaining the 355 Tax Opinion.

        Section 5.6.    Reasonable Best Efforts.     FNF, BKHI and New BKH shall use their respective reasonable best efforts, and cause their respective Subsidiaries to use their respective reasonable best efforts, (i) to complete the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and (ii) to execute and deliver the other documents and instruments required to effect the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, in each case as soon as practicable after the date hereof.

15


consent of the other parties; provided, however, that FNF and New BKH may assign their respective rights, interests, duties, liabilities and obligations under this Agreement to any of their respective wholly-owned Subsidiaries, but such assignment shall not relieve FNF or New BKH, as the assignor, of its obligations hereunder.

            (c)   EACH PARTY HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ALL RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION, PROCEEDING OR COUNTERCLAIM (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE) ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED BY THIS AGREEMENT OR THE ACTIONS OF ANY PARTY IN THE NEGOTIATION, ADMINISTRATION, PERFORMANCE AND ENFORCEMENT OF THIS AGREEMENT AND THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED BY THIS AGREEMENT.
