(a) Initial Determination of Upfront Stock Payment.  The Upfront Stock Payment will made as of the Closing based on (i) an estimate of Seller’s TTM Revenue mutually agreed upon by Buyer and Seller, calculated as an annualization of the revenue of the Business for the period from May 1, 2010 through February 28, 2011 (“Estimated Seller’s TTM Revenue”) and (ii) a  calculation of the Parent Share Closing Price mutually agreed upon by Buyer and Seller.   The calculation of the Upfront Stock Payment will be rounded to the nearest whole number of Parent Shares.

(b)           Post-Closing Adjustments to Upfront Stock Payment.  Within 10 business days following completion of Buyer’s audit of the financial statements of the Business for 2009 and 2010, Buyer will cause the Closing Balance Sheet and Closing Income Statement to be prepared and will deliver to Seller its calculations of (A) Seller’s TTM Revenue and (B) Seller’s Realizable Net Closing Working Capital (the “Upfront Stock Payment Adjustment Calculations”).  Subject to Section 2.08(e), within 10 business days following Buyer’s delivery of the Upfront Stock Payment Calculations (and based on such calculations):

(i) Seller’s TTM Revenue Adjustment.  If the amount of Seller’s TTM Revenue exceeds Estimated Seller’s TTM Revenue, then Parent will issue to Seller, as an adjustment to the Purchase Price, a number of Parent Shares equal to (A) the amount of such excess, divided by (B) the Parent Share Closing Price.  If the amount of Seller’s TTM Revenue is less than Estimated Seller’s TTM Revenue, then Seller will surrender to Parent, as an adjustment to the Purchase Price, a number of Parent Shares equal to 50% of (A) the amount of such shortfall, divided by (B) the Parent Share Closing Price, and a number of Escrowed Shares equal to that surrendered by Seller to Parent will be released to Parent pursuant to the Escrow Agreement.  In either case, the calculation will be rounded to the nearest whole number of Parent Shares.
 
(ii) Realizable Net Working Capital Adjustment. If the amount of Realizable Net Working Capital is positive, then Parent will issue to Seller, as an adjustment to the Purchase Price, a number of Parent Shares equal to (A) the amount of Realizable Net Working Capital, divided by (B) the Parent Share Closing Price.  If the amount of Realizable Net Working Capital is negative, then Seller will surrender to Parent, as an adjustment to the Purchase Price, a number of Parent Shares equal to 50% percent of (A) the amount of the deficit in Realizable Net Working Capital, divided by (B) the Parent Share Closing Price, and a number of Escrowed Shares equal to that surrendered by Seller to Parent will be released to Parent pursuant to the Escrow Agreement.  In either case, the calculation will be rounded to the nearest whole number of Parent Shares.
 
(c)           Earn-Out Stock Payment.  Within 60 days following the end of the Earn-out Period, Buyer will deliver to the Seller a calculation of the Earn-Out Amount and, subject to Section 2.08(e), Parent will issue to Seller, as an adjustment to the Purchase Price, a number of additional Parent Shares equal to (i) the Earn-out Amount, divided by (ii) the Parent Share Earn-Out Price (the “Earn-Out Stock Payment”).  The calculation will be rounded to the nearest whole number of Parent Shares.

(d)           Payment for Uncollected Accounts Receivable.  Buyer hereby covenants and agrees that following the settlement of any Realizable Net Working Capital adjustment it will pay to Seller any amounts collected related to accounts receivable reflected in the Closing Balance Sheet that are not actually collected by Buyer within 90 days following the Closing Date and included in the calculation of Realizable Net Working Capital.  Any such payment may be made, at Buyer’s discretion, in cash or by issuing Seller additional Parent Shares equal to (i) the payment to be made, divided by (ii) the Parent Share Closing Price.  The calculation will be rounded to the nearest whole number of Parent Shares.

 
-10-

 

(e)           Dispute of Calculations.   For a period of 10 business days following receipt of each of the Upfront Stock Payment Adjustment Calculations and the calculation of the Earn-Out Amount from Buyer pursuant to Section 2.08(b) and (c), respectively (the “Review Period”), Seller shall have the right to review the calculations set forth therein and to deliver to Buyer a notice disputing such calculations together with reasonable supporting documentation (a “Dispute Notice”).  If Seller does not deliver a Dispute Notice to Buyer with respect to the Upfront Stock Payment Adjustment Calculations or the calculation of the Earn-Out Amount during the applicable Review Period, the Upfront Stock Payment Adjustment Calculations or the calculation of the Earn-Out Amount delivered by Buyer shall be final, conclusive and binding on Buyer and Seller and the parties shall proceed as set forth in Section 2.08(b) or (c), respectively.  If Seller does deliver a Dispute Notice to Buyer during the applicable Review Period, Buyer and Seller shall attempt to resolve the matters raised in the Dispute Notice in good faith and, if successful, shall proceed as promptly as possible thereafter as set forth in Section 2.08(b) or (c) using the agreed upon calculation in lieu of that delivered by Buyer.  If any such matters remain unresolved by the date that is 10 business days after the date on which the Dispute Notice was delivered to Buyer, Buyer and Seller shall submit the disputed item(s) to a mutually agreeable, nationally recognized accounting firm who shall be independent of the parties and their respective affiliates (the “Neutral Firm”).  The Neutral Firm shall promptly review the disputed item(s) and select from the two calculations of such item(s) submitted by Buyer and Seller the calculation thereof that it deems to be the closest to the correct calculation of such disputed item(s), in the aggregate, which selected calculation shall be final, conclusive and binding on Buyer and Seller (the “Final Calculation”), and the parties shall proceed as promptly as possible thereafter as set forth in Section 2.08(b) or (c) using the Final Calculation in lieu of that delivered by Buyer.  The party whose calculation is not selected by the Neutral Firm as the Final Calculation shall bear all costs of the Neutral Firm.  The Neutral Firm’s decision shall be based solely on written submissions of Buyer and Seller and their respective representatives and not by independent review.  The Neutral Firm shall not hold any hearings, hear any oral testimony or otherwise seek or require any other evidence.  Subject to the foregoing, each of Buyer and Seller agrees to use its commercially reasonable efforts to cooperate with the Neutral Firm and to cause the Neutral Firm to resolve any dispute no later than 20 business days after selection of the Neutral Firm.
