NOW THEREFORE, IT IS AGREED:

1.           Agreements and Covenants of Trustee.  The Trustee hereby agrees and covenants to:
 
(a)           Hold the Property in trust for the Beneficiaries in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, including the terms of Section 11-51-302(6) of the Colorado Statute, in Trust Accounts which shall be established by the Trustee at JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A. and at a brokerage institution selected by the Trustee that is reasonably satisfactory to the Company;
 
(b)           Manage, supervise and administer the Trust Account subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein;

(c)           In a timely manner, upon the written instruction of the Company, to invest and reinvest the Property in U.S. government treasury bills with a maturity of 180 days or less, and/or money market funds meeting certain conditions of Rule 2a-7 under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, and that invest solely in U.S. Treasuries, as determined by the Company.

(d)           Collect and receive, when due, all principal and interest income arising from the Property, which shall become part of the “Property,” as such term is used herein;
 
 
- 2 -

 
 
(e)           Notify the Company of all communications received by it with respect to any Property requiring action by the Company;

(f)           Supply any necessary information or documents as may be requested by the Company in connection with the Company’s preparation of its tax returns;

(g)           Participate in any plan or proceeding for protecting or enforcing any right or interest arising from the Property if, as and when reasonably indemnified by the Company and instructed by the Company to do so, so long as the Company shall have advanced funds sufficient to pay the Trustee’s expenses incident thereto.

(h)           Render to the Company, and to such other person as the Company may instruct, monthly written statements of the activities of, and amounts in, the Trust Account, reflecting all receipts and disbursements of the Trust Account; and

(i)           Commence liquidation of the Trust Account only after and promptly after receipt of, and only in accordance with, the terms of a letter (“Termination Letter”), in a form substantially similar to that attached hereto as either Exhibit A or  Exhibit B hereto, signed on behalf of the Company by an executive officer and complete the liquidation of the Trust Account and distribute the Property in the Trust Account only as directed by the Company; provided, however, that in the event that a Termination Letter has not been received by the Trustee by 11:59 P.M. New York City time on the 21-month anniversary of the closing of the IPO, the Trust Account shall be liquidated as soon as practicable thereafter in accordance with the procedures set forth in the Termination Letter attached as Exhibit B hereto and distributed to the Public Stockholders of record at the close of trading (4:00 P.M. New York City time) on such 21 month anniversary date.  For the purposes of clarity, any transmission of such Termination Letter electronically, whether by facsimile, electronic mail (e-mail), PDF or otherwise, shall constitute an original of such termination Letter hereunder.

2.           Limited Distributions of Income from Trust Account.

(a)           Upon written request from the Company, which may be given from time to time in a form substantially similar to that attached hereto as Exhibit C, the Trustee shall distribute to the Company by wire transfer from the income collected on the Property the amount necessary to cover any tax obligation owed by the Company.

(d)           In no event shall the payments authorized by Sections 2(a) and 2(b) cause the amount in the Trust Account to fall below the amount initially deposited into the Trust Account.  Except as provided in Sections 2(a), 2(b) and 2(c) above, no other distributions from the Trust Account shall be permitted except in accordance with Section 1(i) hereof.

(e)           The written request of the Company referenced above shall constitute presumptive evidence that the Company is entitled to such funds, and the Trustee has no responsibility to look beyond said request.

3.           Agreements and Covenants of the Company.  The Company hereby agrees and covenants to:

(a)           Give all instructions to the Trustee hereunder in writing or the electronic equivalent, signed by the Company’s President, Chief Executive Officer or Chief Financial Officer, and as specified in Section 1(i).  In addition, except with respect to its duties under Sections 1(i), 2(a), 2(b) and 2(c) above, the Trustee shall be entitled to rely on, and shall be protected in relying on, any verbal, electronic or telephonic advice or instruction which it in good faith believes to be given by any one of the persons authorized above to give written instructions, provided that the Company shall promptly confirm such instructions in writing;

(b)           Subject to the provisions of Section 5, hold the Trustee harmless and indemnify the Trustee from and against, any and all expenses, including reasonable counsel fees and disbursements, or losses suffered by the Trustee in connection with any action taken by the trustee hereunder or any claim, potential claim, action, suit or other proceeding brought against the Trustee involving any claim, or in connection with any claim or demand which in any way arises out of or relates to this Agreement, the services of the Trustee hereunder, or the Property or any income earned from investment of the Property, except for expenses and losses resulting from the Trustee’s gross negligence or willful misconduct.  Promptly after the receipt by the Trustee of notice of demand or claim or the commencement of any action, suit or proceeding, pursuant to which the Trustee intends to seek indemnification under this section, it shall notify the Company in writing of such claim (hereinafter referred to as the “Indemnified Claim”).  The Trustee shall have the right to conduct and manage the defense against such Indemnified Claim, provided, that the Trustee shall obtain the consent of the Company with respect to the selection of counsel, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld.  The Trustee may not agree to settle any Indemnified Claim without the prior written consent of the Company, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld.  The Company may participate in such action with its own counsel;
