- 17 -

Any costs or payments incurred in connection with any such incurrence of Indebtedness (or any other such actions) (other than principal amounts that result in a reduction of Aggregate Consideration pursuant to Section 2.11(b)(iii)) that are not paid by the Company prior to the Closing Date, or that are otherwise payable or potentially payable after the Closing Date (other than payments of such principal and interest) (“Unpaid Debt Issuance Costs”), shall be deducted from and shall reduce the Aggregate Consideration in accordance with Section 2.11(b)(vii).
5.6    Share Issuances.
If the Company or any Company Subsidiary shall determine to issue or sell, directly or indirectly, any shares of Company Common Stock or Company Preferred Stock or any other Company Securities, the Company shall ensure that:  (i) any and all such issuances or sales are conducted in the Company’s ordinary course of business in capital raising transactions, (ii) all such issuances or sales are made in compliance with all applicable Law, (iii)  if any sales are made other than in an underwritten public offering, all purchasers or other recipients of shares acknowledge the binding nature of this Agreement, (iv) no Contract entered into with respect to such issuances or sales, and no Company Security so issued or sold, contains terms or conditions that are inconsistent with this Agreement or otherwise gives rise to any rights or obligations of the Company or the purchasers, recipients or other holders of (or any other person with respect to) such shares or other Company Securities that are inconsistent with this Agreement or the Transactions, or gives rise to any consent or approval requirement by or in favor of any person in connection with this Agreement or any of the Transactions, and (v) all such shares or other Company Securities will be cancelled and converted or otherwise treated at the Effective Time as provided in Section 2, without any continuing rights and without any action of any holder or recipient or any other person.  Any costs or payments incurred in connection with any such issuance or sale (other than amounts payable as contemplated pursuant to Sections 2.6 and 2.8 for Company Securities included within the Fully Diluted Share Amount as determined for purposes of Section 2.11) that are not paid by the Company prior to the Closing Date, or that are otherwise payable or potentially payable after the Closing Date (“Unpaid Share Issuance Costs”), shall be deducted from and shall reduce the Aggregate Consideration in accordance with Section 2.11(b)(vii).

Parent shall provide promptly to the Company such information concerning Parent

- 66 -



and Merger Sub as may be reasonably requested by the Company for inclusion in the Proxy Statement. At the earliest practicable time (and in any event within five (5) business days) following the expiration of the ten (10)-day waiting period provided in Rule 14a‑6(a) promulgated under the Exchange Act or, if applicable, receipt and resolution of the SEC comments on the preliminary Proxy Statement, the Company shall file definitive proxy materials (including the definitive Proxy Statement) with the SEC and cause the definitive Proxy Statement to be mailed to its stockholders. Prior to filing any preliminary or definitive Proxy Statement or any other filing with the SEC or any other Governmental Authority in connection with the Transactions, the Company shall provide Parent and its counsel with reasonable opportunity to review and comment on each such filing in advance, and except to the extent such filing relates to a Change in Recommendation made in accordance with Section 6.3(e), the Company shall in good faith consider including in such filings all comments reasonably proposed by Parent. The Company shall ensure that all documents that the Company files with the SEC or disseminates to the Company’s stockholders in connection with the Merger and the other Transactions, including the Proxy Statement, comply as to form and substance in all material respects with the applicable requirements of the Securities Act and the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations thereunder and all other applicable Laws.
(b)    The Company shall notify Parent promptly of the receipt of any oral or written comments from the SEC or its staff (or of notice of the SEC’s intent to review the preliminary Proxy Statement) and of any request by the SEC or its staff for amendments or supplements to the Proxy Statement or any other filing with the SEC in connection with the Transactions or for additional/supplemental information. The Company shall, as promptly as practicable after the receipt of such comments from the SEC or its staff with respect to the Proxy Statement, or any other filing in connection with the Transactions, (i) supply Parent with copies of all written correspondence received in connection therewith, and (ii) provide Parent a reasonably detailed description of any oral comments received in connection therewith.

The Company shall provide Parent and its counsel a reasonable opportunity to participate in any discussions or meetings with the SEC or its staff with respect to the Proxy Statement.

(c)    Except to the extent that the Company Board shall have effected a Change in Recommendation, as permitted by and pursuant to Section 6.3(f) hereof, and subject to the terms set forth in this Agreement, the Company shall take all action necessary in accordance with applicable Law and the Company’s Articles of Incorporation and By-laws, to duly call, give notice of, convene and hold a special meeting of its stockholders as promptly as practicable, and in any event within forty-five (45) days, after the mailing of the definitive Proxy Statement to the stockholders of the Company, for the purpose of considering and taking action on this Agreement and the Transactions, including approving the Merger (the “Stockholders’ Meeting”), and, unless the Company Board shall have effected a Change in Recommendation in accordance with Section 6.3(e), shall (A) include in the Proxy Statement the Company Board Recommendation, and (B)  use its reasonable best efforts to solicit and secure from the stockholders of the Company the Required Company Vote. The Company shall give Parent no less than ten (10) business days advance notice of the date which shall be set as the “record date” for the Company’s stockholders eligible to vote on this Agreement and the Transactions and shall not thereafter change the record date without Parent’s prior written consent unless otherwise required by Law. The Company shall consult with Parent regarding the date of the Stockholders’ Meeting and shall not without the consent of Parent postpone or adjourn (other than one time for a period of up to seven (7) business days for (i) the absence of a quorum or (ii) as reasonably determined by the Company, in good faith, to comply with the applicable Law) the Stockholders’ Meeting without the prior written consent of Parent which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. The foregoing sentence notwithstanding, if on a date for which the Stockholders’ Meeting is scheduled, the Company has not received proxies representing a sufficient number of shares to obtain the Required Company Vote, whether or not a quorum is present, the Company may make one or more postponements or adjournments of the Stockholders’ Meeting of no more than ten (10) business days each; provided that the Stockholders’ Meeting is not postponed or adjourned to a date that is later than the date that is twenty (20) days after the date for which the Stockholders’ Meeting was originally scheduled. The Company shall ensure that the Stockholders’ Meeting is called, noticed, convened, held and conducted, and that all parties solicited in connection with the Stockholders’ Meeting are solicited, in compliance in all material respects with all applicable Law. The adoption of this Agreement and approval of the Transactions (including adjournment of the Stockholders’ Meeting, as necessary, to solicit additional proxies if there are insufficient votes in favor of adoption of this Agreement) shall be the only matter which the Company shall propose to be acted on by the Company’s stockholders at the Stockholders’ Meeting unless otherwise approved in writing by Parent, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld.
6.2    Access to Information; Confidentiality.
(a)    From the date hereof until the earlier to occur of the Effective Time and the termination of this Agreement in accordance with its terms, the Company shall, and shall cause the Company Subsidiaries and the Representatives, auditors and agents of the Company and the Company Subsidiaries to, afford the Representatives of Parent and Merger Sub reasonable access during normal working hours upon reasonable advance notice to the officers, employees, agents, properties, offices, plants and other facilities, books and records of the Company and each Company Subsidiary, including all of the Company’s and the Company

- 68 -



Subsidiaries’ Intellectual Property, and shall furnish Parent and Merger Sub with such financial, operating and other data and information (including the work papers of the Company’s accountants, subject to the prior consent of such accountants, which consent the Company shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain as soon as practicable, and which consent the Company already has been obtained with respect to Parent’s accountants engaged by Parent with respect to this Agreement)) as Parent or Merger Sub may reasonably request, as long as these actions are in compliance with all applicable data privacy/protection Laws; provided, that the Company may restrict or otherwise prohibit access to any documents or information to the extent that (i) any applicable Law requires the Company to restrict or otherwise prohibit access to such documents or information, (ii) access by Parent or its Representatives to such documents or information would give rise to a material risk of waiving any attorney-client privilege, work product doctrine or other applicable privilege applicable to such documents or information, or (iii) access to a Contract to which the Company or any Company Subsidiary is a party or otherwise bound would violate or cause a default under, or give a Third Party the right to terminate or accelerate the rights under, such Contract, provided, further, that with respect to each of the foregoing clauses (i), (ii) and (iii), the Company shall provide Parent access to the maximum extent possible and shall inform promptly inform Parent that the Company will prohibit or restrict access (including, in the case of clause (iii), identifying the contract to which access is being restricted or prohibited and the applicable counterparties) and shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to provide Parent with all such access, including by using its reasonable best efforts to obtain applicable consents.
(b)    Without limiting the generality of the foregoing subsection (a), the Company shall deliver to Parent (1) as soon as available but no later than fifteen (15) days after the last day of each calendar month, an unaudited consolidated balance sheet, income statement and statement of cash flows covering the Company’s consolidated operations for such month and (2) as soon as available but no later than thirty (30) days after the last day of each calendar quarter, an unaudited consolidated balance sheet, income statement and statement of cash flows covering the Company’s consolidated operations for such quarter, in the case of each of clauses (1) and (2) prepared in accordance with GAAP (except that such balance sheet, income statement and statement of cash flows need not contain footnotes).

(d)    The Company shall consult with Parent in good faith on a regular basis and additionally as requested by Parent to report material (individually or in the aggregate) operational developments, material changes in the status of relationships with material customers and potential customers, material changes in the status of ongoing operations and other material matters reasonably requested by Parent.

- 69 -



(e)    No investigation or consultation pursuant to this Section 6.2 or otherwise shall affect any representation warranty, covenant or other agreement in this Agreement of any party hereto or any condition to the obligations of the parties hereto.

(b)    Without limiting the foregoing, it is agreed that any violation of the restrictions set forth in the preceding sentence by any Representative of the Company or any Company Subsidiary shall be a breach of this Section 6.3 by the Company. The Company immediately shall, and shall cause the Company Subsidiaries and shall instruct each of their respective Representatives immediately to, cease and cause to be terminated any and all discussions or negotiations with any person that may be ongoing with respect to, or that could reasonably be expected to lead to, any Acquisition Proposal and request the prompt return or destruction of all confidential information provided to any such party prior to the date of this Agreement and use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure compliance with such request.
(c)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, prior to obtaining the Required Company Vote, in response to a bona fide written Acquisition Proposal that the Company Board determines in good faith (after consultation with outside counsel and a financial advisor of nationally recognized reputation) is, or is reasonably likely to result in, a Superior Proposal, and which Acquisition Proposal did not result from or arise in connection with a breach of this Section 6.3 and was made after the date hereof, and provided that the Company has not breached this Section 6.3 in any material respect and that the Company Board has determined in good faith (after consultation with outside legal counsel) that the failure to take any of the following actions would reasonably be expected to cause the Company Board to breach its fiduciary duties under applicable Law, the Company may, subject to compliance with this Section 6.3, (x) furnish information regarding the Company and the Company Subsidiaries to the person making such Acquisition Proposal (and its Representatives) pursuant to a confidentiality agreement (which shall permit the Company to comply with the terms of Section 6.3) containing

- 70 -



confidentiality and standstill provisions not less restrictive to such person than the provisions of the Confidentiality Agreement are to Parent; provided that all such information has previously been made available to Parent or is made available to Parent prior to, or concurrent with, the time it is provided to such person, and (y) participate in discussions or negotiations with the person making such Acquisition Proposal (and its Representatives) regarding such Acquisition Proposal, provided, that the Company shall not take any of the actions referred to in the foregoing clauses (x) and (y) unless the Company shall have notified Parent in writing, at least three (3) business days prior to taking such action, that it intends to take such action and the basis hereunder therefor.
(d)    For purposes of this Agreement:
(i)    Superior Proposal” means any bona fide written Acquisition Proposal for at least a majority of the outstanding Company Shares (on an as-converted-to-common basis) or all or substantially all of the assets of the Company and its Subsidiaries that the Company Board determines in good faith (after consultation with its financial advisor and outside legal counsel) to be (1) more favorable from a financial point of view to the Company’s stockholders than the Merger (taking into account all terms and conditions of such proposal (including any termination or break-up fees, expense reimbursement provisions and conditions to consummation) and of this Agreement (including any changes to the terms of this Agreement proposed by Parent in response to such offer or otherwise)), and (2) reasonably capable of being completed by the party making such Acquisition Proposal (taking into account, among other things, the expectation of obtaining required regulatory approvals without undue cost or delay).
(ii)    Intervening Event” means any event, occurrence or development (i) that is material to the Company and its Subsidiaries, taken as a whole, and which is, or the material implications of which are, unknown to, or were not reasonably foreseeable by, the Company Board as of the date of this Agreement and (ii) does not relate to any Acquisition Proposal or any of the events, occurrences or developments described in clauses (i) through (v), (viii) and (ix) of the definition of Material Adverse Effect.
(e)    Except as set forth in this Section 6.3, until the termination of this Agreement in accordance with the terms hereof, neither the Company Board nor any committee thereof shall: (i) (A) fail to make, or withdraw, modify, amend or qualify or publicly propose to withdraw, modify, amend or qualify, in any manner adverse to Parent or Merger Sub the Company Board Recommendation, (B) take any action or make any public statement inconsistent with the Company Board Recommendation, (C) fail to make a statement in opposition and recommend rejection to the Company’s stockholders of a tender or exchange offer of the Company’s securities initiated by a Third Party pursuant to Rule 14e-2 promulgated under the Securities Act within ten (10) business days after such tender or exchange offer shall have been announced or commenced by such Third Party, (D)  approve or recommend, or publicly propose to approve or recommend, any Acquisition Proposal (any of the foregoing in clauses (A)-(D), a “Change in Recommendation”), or (ii) adopt or recommend, or publicly propose to adopt or recommend, or allow the Company or any Company Subsidiary to execute or enter into, any letter of intent, memorandum of understanding, agreement in principle, merger

- 71 -



agreement, acquisition agreement, option agreement, joint venture agreement, partnership agreement or other similar Contract constituting or related to, or that is intended to or could reasonably be expected to lead to, any Acquisition Proposal (other than a confidentiality agreement referred to in Section 6.3(a)) (any of the foregoing, an “Acquisition Agreement”).
(f)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, at any time prior to obtaining the Required Company Vote, the Company Board may make a Change in Recommendation in response to (A) a Superior Proposal that was unsolicited and made after the date of this Agreement and did not result from or arise in connection with a breach of this Section 6.3 or (B) an Intervening Event, in the case of each of clause (A) and (B), if, and only if, the Company Board prior to taking such action concludes in good faith, after consultation with its outside legal advisors, that the failure to take such action would reasonably be expected to cause the Company Board to breach its fiduciary duties under applicable Law and complies with the other provisions of this Section 6.3.
(g)    The Company Board shall not be entitled to exercise its right to make a Change in Recommendation pursuant to Section 6.3(f) or to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 8.1(h) unless the Company or the Company Board, as the case may be, has complied with all of the following:

(ii)    during such five (5) business day period, if requested by Parent, the Company shall have engaged, and shall have made its Representatives available to engage, in good faith negotiations with Parent to amend this Agreement in such a manner that obviates the need for a Change in Recommendation; and
(iii)     following such five (5) business day period, the Company Board (A) shall have considered in good faith any changes to this Agreement suggested by Parent and shall have determined that the failure to effect a Change in Recommendation would reasonably be expected to cause the Company Board to breach its fiduciary duties under applicable Law, and (B) if the Change in Recommendation relates to a Superior Proposal, shall not have determined (after consultation with its outside legal and financial advisors) that the Superior Proposal would no longer constitute a Superior Proposal if such changes proposed by Parent were to be given effect (it being understood that the Company shall not take any action described in Section 6.3(e) during such five (5) business-day period, and that any amendment to the financial terms or other material terms of such Superior Proposal shall require a new written notification from the Company and an additional three (3) business-day period that satisfies this Section 6.3(g)(iii).

- 72 -



(h)    The Company shall promptly (and in any event within twenty-four (24) hours) advise Parent orally and in writing of the receipt of any Acquisition Proposal (including for the avoidance of doubt any request for information or other inquiry in connection with or which reasonably could be expected to lead to any Acquisition Proposal), including the material terms and conditions of such Acquisition Proposal (including any changes thereto) and the identity of the person making such Acquisition Proposal and attaching a copy of any such written Acquisition Proposal and any related correspondence to or from the person making such Acquisition Proposal, or if such Acquisition Proposal is provided orally to the Company, the Company shall summarize in writing the terms and conditions of such Acquisition Proposal, including the identity of the person making such Acquisition Proposal (including for the avoidance of doubt any such request or other inquiry) and deliver to Parent such summary and any related correspondence to or from the person making such Acquisition Proposal. The Company shall keep Parent reasonably informed on a reasonably current basis of the status and material terms of any such Acquisition Proposal (including any change or proposed change to the terms thereof) and shall provide Parent copies of all correspondence from the person making such Acquisition Proposal and from the Company or its Representatives in respect of such Acquisition Proposal promptly after receipt or transmission by the Company or any of its Representatives. The Company shall provide Parent with forty eight (48) hours prior notice (or such lesser prior notice as is provided to the members of the Company Board) of any meeting of the Company Board at which the Company Board is expected to consider any Acquisition Proposal or any such inquiry to consider providing information to any person or group in connection with an Acquisition Proposal or any such inquiry.
(i)    Nothing contained in this Section 6.3 shall prohibit the Company or the Company Board from taking and disclosing to its stockholders a position contemplated by Rule 14e‑2(a) under the Exchange Act or making a statement required under Rule 14d‑9 under the Exchange Act; provided that the Company shall only make any disclosure that constitutes a Change in Recommendation in accordance with Section 6.3(f).
(j)    Unless such actions are taken in connection with a termination of this Agreement in accordance with Section 8.1(h), the Company shall not take any action to approve any transaction under, or any Third Party becoming an “interested stockholder” as such term is defined under as such term is defined in NRS 78.423.

The Company shall make available to Parent evidence that such resolutions have been adopted by the Company Board or the board of directors of the Company Subsidiaries, as applicable. The Company also shall take such other actions in furtherance of terminating any such 401(k) plans as may be necessary.

(b)    Nothing in this Agreement shall (x) create any Third Party beneficiary rights in any employee or former employee (including any beneficiary or dependent thereof) of the Company or any Company Subsidiary in any respect, including in respect of continued employment (or resumed employment), or create any such rights in any persons in respect of any benefits that may be provided, directly or indirectly, under any Plan of the Company prior to the Effective Time, or (y) constitute or be construed to constitute an amendment to any of the compensation or benefit plans maintained for or provided to employees or other persons prior to or following the Effective Time. Nothing in this Agreement shall constitute a limitation on the rights to amend, modify or terminate any such plans or arrangements of Parent or any of its subsidiaries (including any Plan of the Company prior to the Effective Time).
(c)    The Company will consult with Parent (and consider in good faith the advice of Parent) prior to sending any material notices or other communication materials to its employees regarding the matters described in this Section 6.4, and any other matters relating to the entry into of this Agreement or the effects of the Merger.
6.5    Directors’ and Officers’ Indemnification and Insurance.
(a)    For six (6) years after the Effective Time, Parent shall cause the Surviving Corporation to (i) indemnify and hold harmless, to the extent that the Surviving Corporation is permitted to indemnify under applicable law, each person who is now or was prior to the date hereof an officer or director of the Company or the Company Subsidiaries and each person who is now or was prior to the date hereof serving as a fiduciary under or with respect to any employee benefit plan of the Company or the Company Subsidiaries (within the meaning of Section 3(3) of ERISA) (each, an “Indemnified Person”) against any and all losses, claims, damages, liabilities, fees, expenses, judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement in connection with any actual or threatened claim, action, suit, arbitration, proceeding or investigation, relating to, or arising out of, acts or omissions occurring, or alleged to have occurred, at or prior to the Effective Time, based in whole or in part on, or arising in whole or in part out of, the fact that such person is or was an officer or director of the Company or the Company Subsidiaries, or a fiduciary under or with respect to any employee benefit plan of the Company or the Company Subsidiaries any costs or expenses and (ii) advance reasonable and documented out-of-pocket costs and expenses (including reasonable and documented attorneys’ fees and expenses) incurred by the Indemnified Person in connection with matters for which such Indemnified Person may be eligible to be indemnified pursuant to Section 6.5(a)(i) within thirty (30) days after receipt by Parent or the Surviving Corporation of a written request for such advance (provided, that any advancement of expenses shall be conditioned upon the Surviving Corporation’s receipt of an undertaking by or on behalf of the Indemnified Person to repay such amount if it shall be ultimately determined by final judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction that the Indemnified Person is not entitled to be indemnified pursuant to this Section 6.5(a)). In

- 74 -



the event of any such action, Parent and the Surviving Corporation shall cooperate with the Indemnified Person in the defense of any such action.
(b)    From and after the Effective Time, the Surviving Corporation shall (i) fulfill and honor, in all respects, the obligations of the Company pursuant to any indemnification agreements of the Company or the Company Subsidiaries set forth in Section 6.5(b) of the Disclosure Schedule (the “Indemnification Agreements”) and any indemnification, exculpation or advancement of expenses provisions under the certificates of incorporations or bylaws (or comparable organizational documents) as in effect immediately prior to the date hereof, and (ii) neither the Indemnification Agreements nor, in any manner disadvantageous to any Indemnified Person, the indemnification, exculpation or advancement of expenses provisions under the articles of incorporations or bylaws shall be amended for a period of six (6) years from the Effective Time; provided, that such obligations shall be subject to any limitation imposed from time to time under applicable Law.
(c)    For six (6) years after the Effective Time, the Surviving Corporation shall provide officers’ and directors’ liability, fiduciary liability and similar insurance (collectively, “D&O Insurance”) in respect of acts or omissions occurring prior to the Effective Time covering each Indemnified Person covered, as of the date of this Agreement, by the Company’s D&O Insurance policies on terms with respect to coverage and amount no less favorable than those of such policy in effect on the date of this Agreement; provided, that, in satisfying its obligation under this Section 6.5(c), the Surviving Corporation shall not be obligated to pay annual premiums in the aggregate in excess of three hundred percent (300%) of the amount per annum the Company paid in its last full fiscal year, which such premium the Company hereby represents is as disclosed in Section 6.5(c) of the Disclosure Schedule. Notwithstanding the foregoing, at any time Parent or the Surviving Corporation may, and if directed by Parent at least twenty (20) business days prior to the Effective Time the Company shall, purchase a “tail” directors’ and officers’ liability insurance policy, covering the same persons and providing the same terms with respect to coverage and amount as aforesaid, and that by its terms shall provide coverage until the sixth (6th) annual anniversary of the Effective Time, and upon the purchase of such insurance (including any such insurance as described in the following proviso) Parent’s and the Surviving Corporation’s obligations pursuant to the first sentence of this Section 6.5(c) shall be deemed satisfied; provided, that the premium paid for such tail policy, whether paid by Parent or the Surviving Corporation or the Company, shall not exceed a one-time premium of three hundred percent (300% ) of the amount per annum the Company paid in its last full fiscal year, and if the coverage thereunder costs more than three hundred percent (300%) of such per annum amount, Parent or the Surviving Corporation or the Company, as the case may be, shall purchase the maximum amount of coverage that can be obtained for three hundred percent (300%) of such per annum amount.
(d)    In the event of any Action for which indemnification may be sought pursuant to this Section 6.5, Parent shall have the right, subject to the applicable indemnification agreement for such Indemnified Party, to control, the defense thereof, and any counsel retained by the Indemnified Parties must be reasonably satisfactory to Parent. Each Indemnified Party shall cooperate with Parent and the Surviving Corporation in the defense of any such Action,

- 75 -



shall furnish or cause to be furnished records, documents, information and testimony and shall attend such conferences, discovery proceedings, hearings, trials or appeals, as may be reasonably requested by Parent in connection therewith.
(e)    The rights of each Indemnified Person under this Section 6.5 shall survive consummation of the Merger and are intended to benefit, and shall be enforceable by, each Indemnified Person.
6.6    Takeover Laws and Rights. If any “fair price,” “moratorium,” “control share acquisition” or other anti-takeover statute or regulation (“Takeover Law”) is or may become applicable to this Agreement, the Company Shares, the Merger or any of the other Transactions, the Company and the Company Board shall grant such approvals and take such actions as are necessary so that such Transactions may be consummated as promptly as practicable on the terms contemplated by this Agreement and otherwise act to eliminate or minimize the effects of such Takeover Law on this Agreement, the Company Shares, the Merger and such other Transactions.
6.7    Notification of Certain Matters.
(a)    The Company shall give prompt notice to Parent, and Parent shall give prompt notice to the Company, of (a) any Action commenced or, to such party’s knowledge, threatened against, relating to or involving or otherwise affecting such party or any of its Subsidiaries which relate to the Merger or the other Transactions, (b) the Company or Parent, as the case may be, becoming aware that any representation or warranty made by it in this Agreement is untrue or inaccurate in any material respect or of the occurrence, or non‑occurrence, of any event, the occurrence, or non‑occurrence, of which reasonably could be expected to cause any representation or warranty made by it contained in this Agreement to be untrue or inaccurate in any material respect or cause any covenant, condition or agreement of the Company or Parent, as the case may be, under this Agreement not to be complied with or satisfied, and (c) any failure of the Company, Parent or Merger Sub, as the case may be, to comply in any material respect with or satisfy in any material respect any covenant or agreement to be complied with or satisfied by it hereunder; and the Company shall give prompt notice to Parent of any written notice or other communication received by the Company or any Company Subsidiary from any person alleging that the consent of such person is or may be required in connection with any of the Transactions or from any Governmental Authority in connection with the Merger or the other Transactions; provided, that the delivery of any notice pursuant to this Section 6.7 shall not limit, or otherwise affect, the remedies available hereunder to the party receiving such notice. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Agreement, the failure to give any notice required by this Section 6.7(a) shall not be treated as a breach of covenant for the purposes of Section 7.2(b).

10.7    Governing Law.

- 86 -



(a)    This Agreement shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Delaware applicable to contracts executed in and to be performed in that state, regardless of the laws that might otherwise govern under applicable principles of conflicts of laws thereof, except to the extent that mandatory principles of law require the application of the Nevada Revised Statutes.
(b)    Each party hereto hereby agrees that any claim, dispute or controversy (of any and every kind or type, whether based on contract, tort, statute, regulation or otherwise, and whether based on state, federal, foreign or any other law), arising out of, relating to or in connection with this Agreement or any of the Transactions, and including disputes relating to the existence, validity, breach or termination of this Agreement (any such claim being a “Covered Claim”), brought by or against such party or any other party hereto or any of their respective successors or assigns, shall be heard and determined exclusively in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware and the appropriate appellate courts therefrom (the “Chancery Court”), and in no other court; provided, however, that in the event the Chancery Court lacks subject matter jurisdiction over a Covered Claim, such claim shall be heard and determined exclusively in another state or federal court sitting in the state of Delaware and the appropriate appellate courts therefrom (an “Other Delaware Court”). Each party hereto expressly agrees and acknowledges that the Delaware Chancery Court (or, if the Delaware Chancery Court lacks subject matter jurisdiction, an Other Delaware Court) is an appropriate and convenient forum for resolution of any and all Covered Claims, that it will not suffer any undue hardship or inconvenience if required to litigate in such court, and that such court is fully competent and legally capable of adjudicating any Covered Claim. Each party hereto further represents that it has agreed to the jurisdiction of the Chancery Court (or an Other Delaware Court), in respect of Covered Claims after being fully and adequately advised by legal counsel of its own choice concerning the procedures and laws applied in such courts and has not relied on any representation by any other party hereto or its Representatives as to the content, scope or effect of such procedures and law, and will not contend otherwise in any proceeding in any court of any jurisdiction.
(c)    Each party hereto hereby irrevocably submits, for itself and in respect to its properties, generally and unconditionally, to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the Chancery Court and Other Delaware Courts in respect of Covered Claims. The parties hereto hereby consent to and grant any such court jurisdiction over the person of such parties and, to the extent permitted by Law, over the subject matter of such dispute and agree that mailing of process or other papers in connection with any such action or proceeding in the manner provided in Section 9.2 or in such other manner as may be permitted by applicable Law shall be valid and sufficient service thereof.
(d)    Each party hereto hereby irrevocably waives, and agrees not to attempt to assert or assert, by way of motion or other request for leave from the Chancery Court (or, if the Delaware Chancery Court lacks subject matter jurisdiction, an Other Delaware Court), as a defense, counterclaim or otherwise, in any action involving a Covered Claim, (a) the defense of sovereign immunity, the defense that any Covered Claim or remedy with respect thereto is within the exclusive jurisdiction of a court outside the state of Delaware, (b) any claim that it is not personally subject to the jurisdiction of the above-named courts for any reason other than the

- 87 -



failure to serve process in accordance with this Section 10.7(d), (c) that it or its property is exempt or immune from jurisdiction of any such court or from any legal process commenced in such courts (whether through service of notice, attachment prior to judgment, attachment in aid of execution of judgment, execution of judgment or otherwise), and (d) to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law that (i) the suit, action or proceeding in any such court is brought in an inconvenient forum, (ii) the suit, action or proceeding is not maintainable in such court, (iii) the venue of such suit, action or proceeding is improper or inappropriate and (iv) this Agreement, or the subject matter hereof, may not be enforced in or by such courts. Each party hereto further hereby irrevocably waives, and agrees not to attempt to assert, by way of motion or other request in any other court of other forum, that a judgment entered by the Chancery Court or any Other Delaware Court, including a judgment for specific performance, is not enforceable in such other court or forum. The parties hereto agree that a final judgment in respect of any Covered Claim of the Delaware Chancery Court (or, if the Delaware Chancery Court lacks subject matter jurisdiction, an Other Delaware Court) shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by applicable Legal Requirements.
(e)    If the Company obtains a final judgment for money damages for breach of this Agreement by Parent or Merger Sub, or Parent or Merger Sub otherwise elect with respect to any other damages payable by Parent or Merger Sub to the Company in connection with any breach of this Agreement by Parent or Merger Sub, then Parent or Merger Sub, as the case may be (and whether on one or more occasions), shall be entitled, by notice to the Company, to offset against any such judgment or other damages all or any of the amount of the Deposit Amount delivered at any time to or at the direction of the Company pursuant the Deposit Agreement that the Company has not theretofore actually returned to Parent pursuant to the Deposit Agreement. 
10.8    Waiver of Jury Trial. EACH OF THE PARTIES HERETO HEREBY WAIVES TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY WITH RESPECT TO ANY LITIGATION DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF, UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS. Each of the parties hereto (a) certifies that no representative, agent or attorney of any other party has represented, expressly or otherwise, that such other party would not, in the event of litigation, seek to enforce that foregoing waiver and (b) acknowledges that it and the other hereto have been induced to enter into this Agreement and the Transactions, as applicable, by, among other things, the mutual waivers and certifications in this Section 10.8.
