(a) Scope of Indemnification.
General Rule. The Company shall indemnify an indemnified representative against any liability incurred in connection with any proceeding in which the indemnified representative may be involved as a party or otherwise by reason of the fact
that such person is or was serving in an indemnified capacity, including, without limitation, liabilities resulting from any actual or alleged breach or neglect of duty, error, misstatement or misleading statement, negligence, gross negligence or
act giving rise to strict or products liability, except:
(a) where such indemnification is
expressly prohibited by applicable law;
(b) where the conduct of the indemnified
representative has been finally determined pursuant to Section 13(f) or otherwise:
(i) to constitute willful misconduct or recklessness sufficient in the circumstances to bar
indemnification against liabilities arising from the conduct; or
(ii) to be based upon or
attributable to the receipt by the indemnified representative from the Company of a personal benefit to which the indemnified representative is not legally entitled; or
(c) to the extent such indemnification has been finally determined in a final adjudication pursuant to
Section 13(f) to be otherwise unlawful.
(ii) Partial Payment. If an
indemnified representative is entitled to indemnification in respect of a portion, but not all, of any liabilities to which such person may be subject, the Company shall indemnify such indemnified representative to the maximum extent for such
portion of the liabilities.
(iii) Presumption. The termination of a proceeding by
judgment, order, settlement or conviction or upon a plea of nolo contendere or its equivalent shall not of itself create a presumption that the indemnified representative is not entitled to indemnification.
(iv) Definitions. For purposes of this
(a) “indemnified capacity” means any and all past,
present and future service by an indemnified representative in one or more capacities as a member, officer, employee or agent of the Company, or, at the request of the Company, as a member, manager, officer, director, employee, agent, fiduciary or
trustee of another company, corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust, employee benefit plan or other entity or enterprise;
(b) “indemnified representative” means any and all members and officers of the Company, any member, manager, officer, employee or agent of a member of the Company acting on behalf of a
member of the Company in its capacity as a member of the Company, and any other person designated as an indemnified representative by the Company (which may, but need not, include any person serving at the request of the Company, as a member,
manager, officer, director, employee, agent, fiduciary or trustee of another Company, corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust, employee benefit plan or other entity or enterprise);
(c) “liability” means any damage, judgment, amount paid in settlement, fine, penalty,
punitive damages, excise tax assessed with respect to an employee benefit plan, or cost or expense of any nature (including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees and disbursements); and
(d) “proceeding” means any threatened, pending or completed action, suit, appeal or
other proceeding of any nature, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, whether formal or informal, and whether brought by or in the right of the Company, a class of its security holders or otherwise.
(b) Proceedings Initiated by Indemnified Representatives. Notwithstanding any other provision of this
Section 13, the Company shall not indemnify under this Section 13 an indemnified representative for any liability incurred in a proceeding initiated (which shall not be deemed to include counterclaims or affirmative defenses)
or participated in as an intervenor or amicus curiae by the person seeking indemnification unless such initiation of or participation in the proceeding is authorized, either before or after its commencement, by the Member. This
Section 13(b) does not apply to reimbursement of expenses incurred in successfully prosecuting or defending an arbitration under Section 13(f) or otherwise successfully prosecuting or defending the rights of an indemnified
representative granted by or pursuant to this Section 13.
(c) Advancing Expenses. The
Company shall pay the expenses (including attorneys’ fees and disbursements) incurred in good faith by an indemnified representative in advance of the final disposition of a proceeding described in Section 13(a) or the initiation of
or participation in a proceeding which has been authorized by the Member pursuant to Section 13(b) upon receipt of an undertaking by or on behalf of the indemnified representative to repay the amount if it is ultimately determined
pursuant to Section 13(l) that such person is not entitled to be indemnified by the Company pursuant to this Section 13. The financial ability of an indemnified representative to repay an advance shall not be a prerequisite
to the making of such advance.
(d) Securing of Indemnification Obligations. To further effect, satisfy
or secure the indemnification obligations provided herein or otherwise, the Company may maintain insurance, obtain a letter of credit, act as self-insurer, create a reserve, trust, escrow, cash collateral or other fund or account, enter into
indemnification agreements, pledge or grant a security interest in any
assets or properties of the Company, or use any other mechanism or arrangement whatsoever in such amounts, at such costs, and upon such other terms and conditions as the Member shall deem
appropriate. Absent fraud, the determination of the Member with respect to such amounts, costs, terms and conditions shall be conclusive against all security holders, officers and members and shall not be subject to voidability.
(e) Payment of Indemnification. An indemnified representative who is entitled to indemnification under this
Section 13 shall be entitled to payment within 30 days after a written request for indemnification has been delivered to the Secretary of the Company.
(i) General Rule. Any dispute related to the right to indemnification, contribution or advancement
of expenses as provided under this Section 13, except with respect to indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, that the Company has undertaken to submit to a court for adjudication shall be
decided only by arbitration in the metropolitan area in which the principal executive offices of the Company are located at the time, in accordance with the commercial arbitration rules then in effect of the American Arbitration Association, before
a panel of three arbitrators, one of whom shall be selected by the Company, the second of whom shall be selected by the indemnified representative and the third of whom shall be selected by the other two arbitrators. In the absence of the American
Arbitration Association, or if for any reason arbitration under the arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association cannot be initiated, and if one of the parties fails or refuses to select an arbitrator or the arbitrators selected by the
Company and the indemnified representative cannot agree on the selection of the third arbitrator within 30 days after such time as the Company and the indemnified representative have each been notified of the selection of the other’s
arbitrator, the necessary arbitrator or arbitrators shall be selected by the presiding judge of the court of general jurisdiction in the county in which the Company’s executive office is located.
(ii) Qualifications of Arbitrators. Each arbitrator selected as provided herein is required to be
or have been a director or executive officer of a corporation whose shares of common stock were listed during at least one year of such service on the New York Stock Exchange or the American Stock Exchange or quoted on the National Association of
Securities Dealers Automated Quotations System.
(iii) Burden of Proof. The party or
parties challenging the right of an indemnified representative to the benefits of this Section 13 shall have the burden of proof.
(iv) Expenses. The Company shall reimburse an indemnified representative for the expenses (including attorneys’ fees and disbursements) incurred in successfully prosecuting or defending such
(v) Effect. Any award entered by the arbitrators shall be final, binding
and nonappealable and judgment may be entered thereon by any party in accordance with applicable law in any court of competent jurisdiction, except that the Company shall be entitled
to interpose as a defense in any such judicial enforcement proceeding any prior final judicial determination adverse to the indemnified representative under Section 13(a)(i)(a) or
Section 13(a)(i)(b). This arbitration provision shall be specifically enforceable.
Contribution. If the indemnification provided for in this Section 13 or otherwise is unavailable for any reason in respect of any liability or portion thereof, the Company shall contribute to the liabilities to which the
indemnified representative may be subject in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the intent of this Section 13 or otherwise.
(h) Mandatory Indemnification of the Member, Officers, Etc. To the extent that an authorized representative of the Company has been successful on the merits or otherwise in defense of any action,
suit or proceeding brought against such person by reason of the fact that such person is or was serving on behalf of the Company, or brought by such person by or in the right of the Company to procure a judgment in its favor, or in defense of any
claim, issue or matter therein, such person shall be indemnified against expenses (including attorneys’ fees and disbursements) actually and reasonably incurred by such person in connection therewith.
(i) Contract Rights; Amendment or Repeal. All rights under this Section 13 shall be deemed a contract
between the Company and the indemnified representative pursuant to which the Company and each indemnified representative intend to be legally bound. Any repeal, amendment or modification hereof shall be prospective only and shall not affect any
rights or obligations then existing.
(j) Scope of Section 13. The rights granted by this
Section 13 shall not be deemed exclusive of any other rights to which those seeking indemnification, contribution or advancement of expenses may be entitled under any statute, agreement, vote or otherwise, both as to action in an
indemnified capacity and as to action in any other capacity. The indemnification, contribution and advancement of expenses provided by or granted pursuant to this Section 13 shall continue as to a person who has ceased to be an
indemnified representative in respect of matters arising prior to such time, and shall inure to the benefit of the heirs, executors, administrators and personal representatives of such a person.
(k) Reliance on Provisions. Each person who shall act as an indemnified representative of the Company shall be
deemed to be doing so in reliance upon the rights of indemnification, contribution and advancement of expenses provided by this Section 13.
(l) Changes in Delaware Law. References in this Section 13 to Delaware law or to any provision thereof shall be to such law as it existed on the date this Section 13 was
adopted or as such law thereafter may be changed; provided that (i) in the case of any change which expands the liability of indemnified representatives or limits the indemnification rights or the rights to advancement of expenses which the
Company may provide, the rights to limited liability, to indemnification and to the advancement of expenses provided in this Section 13 shall continue as theretofore to the extent permitted by law; and (ii) if such change permits
the Company without the requirement of any further action by the Member or the officers to limit further the liability of indemnified representatives or to provide broader indemnification rights or rights to the advancement of expenses than the
Company was permitted to provide prior to such change, then liability thereupon shall be so limited and the rights to indemnification and the advancement of expenses shall be so broadened to the extent permitted by law.

representatives, successors and assigns of the respective parties hereto.

provisions make any claim in respect of any debt, liability or obligation (or otherwise) against the Company or the Member.
