No “reportable event” (as defined under ERISA) has occurred or is reasonably expected to occur with respect to any Benefit Plan. No Benefit Plan, if such Benefit Plan were terminated, would have any “amount of unfunded benefit liabilities” (as defined under ERISA). Neither the Company nor any of its ERISA Affiliates has incurred or reasonably expects to incur any liability under (i) Title IV of ERISA with respect to termination of, or withdrawal from, any “employee benefit plan” or (ii) Sections 412, 4971, 4975 or 4980B of the Code, in each case except as would not, individually or in the aggregate, have a Material Adverse Effect. Each Benefit Plan that is intended to be qualified under Section 401(a) of the Code is so qualified and nothing has occurred, whether by action or failure to act, which would cause the loss of such qualification. Notwithstanding anything in this subsection Section 6.14 to the contrary, with respect to any representation herein that applies to any “employee benefit plan” that is not established or maintained by the Company or an ERISA Affiliate, such representation shall be deemed to be made to the Company’s knowledge.

NO SUCH TRANSFER MAY BE EFFECTED WITHOUT AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT RELATED THERETO OR AN OPINION OF COUNSEL IN A FORM SATISFACTORY TO THE COMPANY THAT SUCH REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933.

10.1            Indemnification of Purchaser. The Company agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Purchaser and its Affiliates, and their respective directors, officers, trustees, members, managers, employees, and agents (each, for the purposes of this Section 10, a “Purchaser Indemnified Party” and collectively, the “Purchaser Indemnified Parties”), for the amount of any and all losses, claims, damages, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses) (collectively, “Losses”) actually suffered or incurred by a Purchaser Indemnified Party arising out of or resulting from the Company’s breach of representation, warranty, covenant or agreement made by or to be performed it under the Transaction Documents.

 

- 23 -

 

 

10.2            Indemnification of the Company. The Purchaser agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Company and its Affiliates (other than the Purchaser if the Purchaser becomes an Affiliate), and their respective stockholders, directors, officers, trustees, members, partners, managers, employees, and agents (each, for the purposes of this Section 10, a “Company Indemnified Party”), for the amount of any and all Losses actually suffered or incurred by a Company Indemnified Party arising out of or resulting from the Purchaser’s breach of representation, warranty, covenant or agreement made by or to be performed it under the Transaction Documents.

 

10.3            Indemnification Procedures.

 

(a)           In the event that any Purchaser Indemnified Party or a Company Indemnified Party, as applicable (an “Indemnified Party”), shall sustain or incur any Losses in respect of which indemnification may be sought pursuant to this Section 10, the Indemnified Party seeking indemnification shall assert a claim for indemnification by giving the Company (if the Indemnified Party is a Purchaser Indemnified Party) or the Purchaser (if the Indemnified Party is a Company Indemnified Party) (the Party receiving such notice, the “Indemnifying Party”) prompt written notice thereof (an “Indemnification Notice”), which notice shall describe in reasonable detail the facts and circumstances upon which the asserted claim for indemnification is based. For purposes of this Section 10.3, any Indemnification Notice that is sent within 15 Business Days of the date upon which the Indemnified Party actually learned of such Loss shall be deemed to have been “prompt notice”. Failure of the Indemnified Party to give the Indemnifying Party prompt notice as provided herein shall not relieve the Indemnifying Party of any of its obligations hereunder except to the extent that the Indemnifying Party is materially prejudiced by such failure.

 

(b)           Upon the receipt of an Indemnification Notice, the Indemnifying Party shall have the right to undertake (at its own expense) the good faith defense, compromise or settlement of the claim on behalf of the Indemnified Party by counsel or representatives of its own choosing, if the Indemnifying Party unconditionally agrees in writing that it shall indemnify the Indemnified Party for all Losses relating to the subject claim. The Indemnifying Party shall keep the Indemnified Party reasonably informed with respect to such defense. If the Indemnifying Party elects to undertake such defense, it shall give notice of such election to the Indemnified Party within 15 Business Days of its receipt of the Indemnification Notice. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Indemnifying Party may not assume or control the defense if the named parties to the claim (including any impleaded parties) include both the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party and representation of both by the same counsel would be inappropriate (based on a written opinion of outside counsel to the Indemnified Party) due to actual or potential differing interests between them, in which case the Indemnified Party shall have the right to defend the action and to employ counsel reasonably approved by the Indemnifying Party. In such circumstances, the Indemnifying Party shall reimburse the Indemnified Party for all reasonable costs of a single counsel associated with such defense.

 

(c)           The Indemnified Party shall cooperate with the Indemnifying Party in any defense undertaken by the Indemnifying Party pursuant to Section 10.3(b) and provide the Indemnifying Party with all information and assistance reasonably necessary to permit the Indemnifying Party to pursue such defense. The Indemnifying Party shall have the right in good faith to settle or compromise any such claim, if (i) at least ten Business Days prior notice of such settlement or compromise is given to the Indemnified Party, and (ii) such settlement or compromise does not require the Indemnified Party to take or refrain from taking any action (provided that, Indemnified Party shall not unreasonably withhold its consent to the terms of a mutual release with respect to such claim with the third party making such claim), contain any admission by or on behalf of the Indemnified Party, or otherwise fail to hold Indemnified Party fully harmless with respect to such claim. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in connection with any settlement or compromise of a claim negotiated by the Indemnifying Party, no Indemnified Party shall be required to (A) enter into any settlement that does not include as an unconditional term thereof the delivery to the Indemnified Party of a release from all liability in respect of such claim, or (B) enter into any settlement that attributes by its terms any non-indemnified liability to the Indemnified Party. Except as otherwise provided in the last sentence of Section 10.3(b), the Indemnified Party may retain counsel (at the Indemnified Party’s expense) to monitor or participate in such defense, but the Indemnifying Party shall be entitled to control the defense unless the Indemnified Party agrees in writing to relieve the Indemnifying Party from liability with respect to the subject claim. If the Indemnified Party effects any compromise or settlement of a claim being defended by the Indemnifying Party pursuant to this Section 10.3(c) without the prior written consent of the Indemnifying Party, then the Indemnified Party by so doing forfeits any right to indemnification of Losses with respect to such claim by the Indemnifying Party under this Section 10.

 

- 24 -

 

 

(d)            If the Indemnifying Party fails, within 15 Business Days after the date of the Indemnification Notice, to give notice to the Indemnified Party of the Indemnifying Party’s election to assume the defense of the subject claim, the Indemnifying Party shall be bound by any determination made in such claim or compromise or settlement effected by the Indemnified Party and shall reimburse the Indemnified Party for all Losses incurred by the Indemnified Party in defending such claim; provided that, the Indemnified Party shall not compromise or settle such claim without the prior written consent of the Indemnifying Party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned. The Indemnified Party shall keep the Indemnifying Party advised on a timely basis of significant developments with respect to such defense and permit the Indemnifying Party to participate, at its own election and expense, at any time, in the defense thereof.

 

10.4            Limitations.

 

(a)            With respect to an indemnifiable Loss, neither Party’s aggregate liability to the other Party for such Loss shall not exceed the aggregate dollar amount paid by Purchaser to the Company in connection with its purchase of shares of the Company’s Common Stock.

 

(b)            NEITHER PARTY WILL BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER PARTY FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR SPECIAL DAMAGES SUFFERED BY THE OTHER PARTY (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DAMAGES FOR HARM TO BUSINESS, LOST REVENUES, LOST SAVINGS, OR LOST PROFITS SUFFERED BY THE OTHER PARTY), REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, WARRANTY, STRICT LIABILITY, OR TORT, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION NEGLIGENCE OF ANY KIND WHETHER ACTIVE OR PASSIVE, AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE PARTIES KNEW OF THE POSSIBILITY THAT SUCH DAMAGES COULD RESULT. EACH PARTY HEREBY RELEASES THE OTHER PARTY (AND EACH INDEMNIFIED PARTY) FROM ANY SUCH CLAIM.

 

11.            Miscellaneous Provisions.

 

11.1            Survival of Warranties. Subject to the limitations and other provisions of this Agreement, the respective representations and warranties given by the Parties shall survive each of the Initial Closing, the Second Closing and the Milestone Closings for a period of one year from each such closing and each covenant and agreement contained herein shall survive until fully performed by the applicable Party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any claims asserted in good faith (to the extent known at such time) and in writing by notice from the non-breaching Party to the breaching Party prior to the expiration of the above survival period shall not thereafter be barred by the expiration of the relevant representation or warranty and such claims shall survive until finally resolved.

 

11.2            Public Statements or Releases. The initial press release with respect to the execution of this Agreement shall be a joint press release to be prepared by Purchaser and the Company (the “Initial Press Release”). Following such Initial Press Release, Purchaser shall control the form, content and timing of any other public disclosure or announcement of this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby; provided that, nothing in this Agreement (i) shall limit either Party’s ability to make public disclosures reasonably deemed required by such Party under applicable Law, (ii) shall prohibit the Company from sharing press releases and communications previously approved by the Purchaser, (iii) shall prohibit the Company from releasing any public communications consented to by the Purchaser (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld), or (iv) shall prohibit the Company from releasing public communications that restate information that was in the Initial Press Release. Following the Initial Closing, the Company shall cooperate with Purchaser with respect to any filing on Current Report on Form 8-K regarding the Transaction Documents within the time period required by the Exchange Act. The parties acknowledge that this Agreement may be filed as an exhibit to the Purchaser’s SEC Filings.

 

11.3            Consolidated Financials. With respect to any time period for which the Purchaser (in its sole discretion) is required to use the equity method of accounting with respect to the Purchaser’s investment in or relationship with the Company (or to otherwise consolidate, reflect or incorporate the financial statements or financial results of the Company with or into the financial statements or financial results of the Purchaser), the Company will reasonably cooperate with the Purchaser to provide in an accurate, complete and timely manner such information and access to such Company personnel as may be necessary for or reasonably requested by the Purchaser to satisfy (x) the requirements of applicable law and regulation, the SEC, any other governmental authority, exchange or self regulatory organization, in each case as such requirements relate to the financial statements and financial results of the Company, and (y) the reasonable requests of the Purchaser’s auditors.

 

- 25 -

 

 

11.4            Form D; Blue Sky Filings. The Company agrees to timely file a Form D with respect to the sale of the Shares by the Company under this Agreement as required under Regulation D. The Company shall take such action as the Company shall reasonably determine is necessary in order to obtain an exemption for, or to qualify the Shares for, sale to the Purchaser at the Initial Closing Date, the Second Closing Date, or each Milestone Closing Date, as applicable, under applicable securities or “Blue Sky” laws of the states of the United States and shall provide evidence of such actions promptly upon request of the Purchaser.

 

11.5            Further Assurances. Each Party agrees to, and shall cause their respective Affiliates to, cooperate fully with the other Party and to execute such further instruments, documents and agreements and to give such further written assurances, as may be reasonably requested by the other Party to better evidence and reflect the transactions described herein and contemplated hereby, and to carry into effect the intents and purposes of this Agreement and to consummate the transactions contemplate by the Transaction Documents.

 

11.6            Rights Cumulative. Each and all of the various rights, powers and remedies of the Parties shall be considered to be cumulative with and in addition to any other rights, powers and remedies which such Parties may have at law or in equity in the event of the breach of any of the terms of this Agreement. The exercise or partial exercise of any right, power or remedy shall neither constitute the exclusive election thereof nor the waiver of any other right, power or remedy available to such Party.

 

11.7            Corporate Transaction. Should the Company undergo a Corporate Transaction in breach of this Agreement, Sections 4 and all other obligations to effect either Milestone Share Purchase shall terminate. In the event of an M&A Closing (as defined in the Security Purchase Option Agreement), Section 4 and all other obligations to effect either Milestone Share Purchase shall also terminate at the M&A Closing (as defined in the Security Purchase Option Agreement).

 

11.8            Pronouns. All pronouns or any variation thereof shall be deemed to refer to the masculine, feminine or neuter, singular or plural, as the identity of the person, persons, entity or entities may require.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or the Transaction Documents, following the Second Closing and the Purchaser’s purchase of $25,000,000 of Shares, the Purchaser may terminate this Agreement and the Transaction Documents (including the Security Purchase Option Agreement) at any time in its sole and absolute discretion with thirty (30) days’ written notice to the Company. It is understood, agreed and acknowledged that upon any such termination, Purchaser shall retain any Common Stock acquired pursuant to this Agreement prior to the effectiveness of such termination; provided that, (a) Sections 11.4, 11.7, 11.8, 11.9, 11.12, 11.13, 11.14, 11.16 and 11.18 shall survive any such termination, and (b) if this Agreement is terminated as provided in this Section 11.20, the Security Purchase Option Agreement shall also be deemed terminated as of such date without further action on the part of any Person.
