1. Amendments.

 

i. Sections 2.8(b) and (c) of the Merger Agreement are hereby amended by deleting such sections in their entirety and substituting therefor the following:

 

(b)  If the Estimated Closing Net Working Capital is less than the Target Net Working Capital, the Cash Merger Consideration payable at the Closing shall be reduced by an amount equal to such deficiency. If the Estimated Closing Net Working Capital is greater than the Target Net Working Capital, the Cash Merger Consideration payable at the Closing shall be increased by such excess. The adjustment made pursuant to the two immediately preceding sentences is referred to herein as the “Estimated Net Working Capital Adjustment.” The adjustment made to Cash Merger Consideration in this paragraph (b) and based on Estimated Closing Cash and Estimated Closing Indebtedness is referred to herein as the “Initial Adjustment” and shall be subject to subsequent adjustment as provided in paragraphs (c), (d) and (e) below.

 

(c) Within 45 days after the Closing Date, the Surviving Entity shall prepare or cause to be prepared, at its own expense, and deliver to the Representative together with all work papers and back-up materials relating thereto, a written statement setting forth (i) a balance sheet of the Seller Entities as of the close of business on the Closing Date, immediately prior to giving effect to the Closing, prepared in accordance with GAAP applied on a basis consistent with the Interim Balance Sheets, and (ii) the Surviving Entity’s final calculations of (x) the Estimated Closing Net Working Capital, (y) the Estimated Closing Cash and (z) the Estimated Closing Indebtedness (together with the balance sheet referred to in clause (i) above and the statement in clause (ii) above, the “Final Closing Statement”).

 

 
 

 

ii. Section 9.5(a) of the Merger Agreement is hereby amended by deleting such section in its entirety and substituting therefor the following:

Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective heirs, successors, permitted assigns and legal representatives. This Agreement shall be for the sole benefit of the parties to this Agreement and their respective heirs, successors, permitted assigns and legal representatives and is not intended, nor shall be construed, to give any Person, other than the Parent Indemnified Parties, the Seller Indemnified Parties, the parties hereto and their respective heirs, successors, assigns and legal representatives, any legal or equitable right, remedy or claim hereunder.
