Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, to the extent that any Asset is not assignable or transferable without the consent or waiver of, or the taking of any other action by, any third party (including any Governmental Entity) (a “Nonassignable Right”), or if the assignment or transfer thereof or the attempted assignment or transfer thereof would constitute a breach under any applicable Contract or a violation of any applicable Law, this Agreement shall not constitute an assignment or transfer, or an attempted assignment or transfer thereof until such consent or waiver has been obtained or such other action has been taken, and the following provisions shall be applicable until such time as such consent or waiver has been obtained or such other action has been taken:

11


(a)    Seller shall use its commercially reasonable efforts (which shall not require it to incur any financial obligation or any other material obligation), and Purchaser shall cooperate therewith, to obtain such consent or waiver or cause the taking of any required action, as applicable.

7.4    Limitation on Indemnification. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement:

(a)    No Person shall be liable for any claim for indemnification under this Article VII unless a Claim Certificate is delivered by the Person seeking indemnification to the Person from whom indemnification is sought prior to the expiration of the applicable survival period, in which case the representation, warranty, covenant or agreement which is the subject of such claim shall survive until such claim is resolved, whether or not the amount of the Losses resulting from such breach has been finally determined at the time the notice is given and whether or not the applicable survival period would have expired but for this sentence.

(b)    Neither Seller nor Purchaser, as the case may be, shall be liable for any claim for indemnification pursuant to Section 7.2(a) or Section 7.3(a), as the case may be, unless the aggregate amount of Losses on a cumulative basis which may be recovered from Seller or Purchaser, as the case may be, equals or exceeds $500,000 (the “Deductible”), in which case, subject to the other limitations herein, Seller or Purchaser, as the case may be, shall only be liable for the aggregate amount of Losses in excess of the amount of the Deductible.

(c)    The maximum aggregate liability of Seller pursuant to (i) Section 7.2(a) shall not exceed (A) an amount in cash equal to $[*] (the “Cash Cap”) plus (B) a forfeiture of such number of Seller’s Class B Preferred Units in an amount up to $[*] based on the Fair Market Value (as

7.5    Losses Net of Insurance, etc. The amount of any Loss for which indemnification is provided under Section 7.2 or Section 7.3 shall be net of any insurance proceeds received as an offset against such Loss (a “Collateral Source”). If the amount to be netted hereunder in connection with a Collateral Source from any payment required under Section 7.2 or Section 7.3 is received after payment by the Indemnifying Party of any amount otherwise required to be paid to an Indemnified Party pursuant to this Article VII, the Indemnified Party shall repay to the Indemnifying Party, promptly after such receipt, any amount that the Indemnifying Party would not have had to pay pursuant to this Article VII had such receipt occurred at the time of such payment. Each Party shall use commercially reasonable efforts to mitigate Losses for which it intends to seek indemnification hereunder. The party seeking indemnification under this Article VII shall not be entitled to recover any Losses relating to any matter arising under one provision of this Agreement to the extent that such party has already recovered such Losses with respect to such matter pursuant to other provisions of this Agreement.

7.6

(a)    In the event any Person incurs Losses to which it is entitled to indemnification pursuant to Section 7.2 or Section 7.3, as applicable, including any claim by a Person described in Section
7.7    (an “Indemnified Party”) that might give rise to indemnification hereunder, the Indemnified Party shall, during the applicable survival period set forth in Section 7.1, deliver a certificate (a “Claim Certificate”) to the party from which indemnification is sought (the “Indemnifying Party”), which Claim Certificate shall:

(i)state that the Indemnified Party has paid or anticipates, in good faith, it will incur Losses for which such Indemnified Party is entitled to indemnification pursuant to this Agreement, together with a good faith estimate thereof to the extent known; and

(ii)specify in reasonable detail the nature of the misrepresentation, breach of warranty, breach of covenant or claim to which the Losses such Indemnified Party claims to be entitled hereunder relate together with reference to the applicable representation or warranty or covenant hereunder.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the failure to so notify the Indemnifying Party during the applicable survival period set forth in Section 7.1 shall not affect the Indemnified Party’s right to indemnification hereunder except to the extent the Indemnifying Party was materially prejudiced thereby.

(b)    The Indemnified Party making the claim shall only be required to state what is required in subsections (i) and (ii) above and shall not be required to admit or deny the validity of the facts or circumstances out of which such claim arose.


29


(c)    The Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party shall, within the 60-day period beginning on the date of receipt by the Indemnifying Party of a Claim Certificate, attempt in good faith to agree upon the rights of the respective parties with respect to each of such claims set forth in the Claim Certificate. If the Indemnified Party and the Indemnifying Party reach agreement on their respective rights with respect to any of such claims, the Indemnified Party and the Indemnifying Party shall promptly prepare and sign a memorandum setting forth such agreement. Should the Indemnified Party and the Indemnifying Party not agree as to any particular item or items or amount or amounts within such time period, then the Indemnified Party shall be permitted to submit such dispute to the courts set forth in Section 8.8.

(d)    Claims for Losses covered by a memorandum of agreement of the nature described in Section 7.6(c) and claims for Losses, including Third-Party Claims, the validity and amount of which have been the subject of judicial determination as described in Sections 7.6(c) and 8.8 or shall have been settled with the consent of the Parties are hereinafter referred to, collectively, as “Agreed Claims”. Within 10 Business Days of the determination of the amount of any Agreed Claim, subject to the limitations on liability herein, the Indemnifying Party shall pay to the Indemnified Party an amount equal to the Agreed Claim by wire transfer in immediately available funds to the bank account or accounts designated by the Indemnified Party in a notice to the Indemnifying Party.

7.7
Third-Party Claims.

(a)    If a claim by a third party (a “Third-Party Claim”) is made against any Indemnified Party, and if such party intends to seek indemnity with respect thereto under this Section 7.7, such Indemnified Party shall promptly notify the Indemnifying Party of such Third-Party Claim and provide a Claim Certificate in connection therewith, provided that the failure to promptly notify the Indemnifying Party shall not affect the Indemnified Party’s right to indemnification hereunder except to the extent the Indemnified Party was materially prejudiced thereby. The Indemnifying Party shall have 30 days after receipt of such notice to assume the conduct and control, at the expense of the Indemnifying Party, through counsel of its choosing which is reasonably acceptable to the Indemnified Party, of the settlement or defense of such Third-Party Claim and the Indemnified Party shall cooperate with the Indemnifying Party in connection therewith; provided, that the Indemnifying Party shall permit the Indemnified Party to participate in such settlement or defense through counsel chosen by such Indemnified Party; provided, that the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be borne by such Indemnified Party. The Indemnifying Party shall not be entitled to assume control of such defense and, subject to the limitations on liability herein, shall pay the reasonable fees and expenses of counsel retained by the Indemnified Party if (i) such Third- Party Claim relates to or arises in connection with any criminal proceeding, action, indictment, allegation or investigation that constitutes a breach of any representation or warranty of the Indemnifying Party hereunder; (ii) such Third-Party Claim seeks an injunction against the Indemnified Party; (iii) the Indemnified Party has been advised by counsel that a reasonable likelihood exists of a conflict of interest between the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party (other than a conflict arising out of this Agreement); or (iv) upon petition by the Indemnified Party, the appropriate court rules that the Indemnifying Party failed or is failing to vigorously prosecute or defend such Third-Party Claim. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, with respect to any claim with respect to Taxes, Seller shall have the right to control such claim at its sole expense if, but only if, such claim relates solely to Taxes (x) attributable to the Assets with respect to any Pre-Effective Date Period or (y) imposed on Seller.

(b)    Any Indemnified Party shall have the right to employ separate counsel in any such action or claim and to participate in the defense of such Third-Party Claim, but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall not be at the expense of the Indemnifying Party unless (i) the Indemnifying Party shall have failed, or is not entitled, to assume the defense of such Third-Party Claim in accordance with Section 7.7(a) and such Third-Party Claim constitutes a breach of any representation or warranty of the


30


Indemnifying Party hereunder, or (ii) the employment of such counsel has been specifically authorized in writing by the Indemnifying Party. So long as the Indemnifying Party is reasonably contesting in good faith any Third-Party Claim that such Indemnifying Party has assumed the settlement or defense of, the Indemnified Party shall not pay or settle any such Third-Party Claim, unless otherwise consented to by the Indemnifying Party.

(c)    If the Indemnifying Party does not notify the Indemnified Party within 30 days after the receipt of the Indemnified Party’s notice of a Third-Party Claim of indemnity hereunder that it elects to undertake the defense thereof, the Indemnified Party shall have the right to settle the Third-Party Claim but shall not thereby waive any right to indemnity therefor pursuant to this Agreement and any such settlement shall not be determinative of the amount or existence of any Losses under this Article VII.

(d)    The Indemnifying Party shall not, except with the consent of the Indemnified Party (not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed), enter into any settlement that does not include, as an unconditional term thereof, an unconditional release from all liability by the Person or Persons asserting such Third-Party Claim to all Indemnified Parties with respect to such Third-Party Claim or consent to entry of any judgment.

(e)    The Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party shall cooperate with each other in all reasonable respects in connection with the defense of any Third-Party Claim, including making available records relating to such Third-Party Claim and furnishing such employees of the Indemnified Party as may be reasonably necessary for the preparation of the defense of any such Third-Party Claim or for testimony as witnesses in any proceeding relating to such Third-Party Claim.

7.8    Tax Treatment of Indemnities. Indemnity payments under this Article VII shall be treated as adjustments to the Purchase Price for all federal, state, local and foreign Tax purposes, and the Parties agree to file their Tax Returns accordingly.

7.9    Offset. The Parties Agree that, in addition to all other remedies available under this Agreement, at law, in equity, or otherwise, any amounts due to Seller by Purchaser pursuant to this Agreement may be reduced by any and all amounts of Agreed Claims due by Seller to Purchaser.

7.10    Materiality Scrape. The representations and warranties contained in this Agreement will be deemed to have been made without any qualifications as to materiality, material adverse effect, specified dollar thresholds, or similar qualifiers for purposes of determining the amount of Losses indemnifiable under this Article VII but not for purposes of determining if there is a breach of such representations and warranties.

7.11    Exclusive Remedies. Except with respect to the remedies described in Section 8.10 and except for Fraud with respect to the representations and warranties in this Agreement or willful breach of the covenants in this Agreement, the Parties acknowledge and agree that their sole and exclusive remedy with respect to any and all claims arising from this Agreement shall be pursuant to the indemnification provisions set forth in this Article VII. The Parties may not avoid the limitations on liability, recovery and recourse set forth in this Article VII by seeking damages for breach of contract, tort or pursuant to any other theory of Liability. Except as provided in Section 8.10 and except for Fraud with respect to the representations and warranties in this Agreement or willful breach of the covenants in this Agreement, each of the Parties hereby waives and releases the other Parties from any right to recover any damages, Losses or Liabilities in connection with this Agreement, other than pursuant to the indemnification provisions set forth in Article VII. The Parties agree that they would not have entered into this Agreement but for the releases and waivers set forth in this Section 7.11. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in this Section 7.11


31


is intended to, or shall, limit in any party in any way from seeking remedies under any agreements entered into in connection with this Agreement.
