8.2     Indemnification Procedures for Claims.
(a)A Person entitled to indemnification pursuant to Section 8.1 will hereinafter be referred to as an Indemnitee.” A Party obligated to indemnify an Indemnitee hereunder will hereinafter be referred to as an Indemnitor.” Indemnitee shall inform Indemnitor of any Third Party claim (“Claim”) as soon as reasonably practicable after the Claim arises, it being understood and agreed that the failure to give such notice will not relieve the Indemnitor of its indemnification obligation under this Agreement except and only to the extent that such Indemnitor is actually and materially prejudiced as a result of such failure to give notice.
(b)If the Indemnitor has acknowledged in writing to the Indemnitee the Indemnitor’s responsibility for defending such Claim and such Claim is not a class action or criminal matter, the Indemnitor shall have the right to defend, at its sole cost and expense (with counsel reasonably selected by the Indemnitor and approved by the Indemnitee, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed), such Claim by all appropriate proceedings, which proceedings shall be prosecuted diligently by the Indemnitor to a final conclusion or settled at the discretion of the Indemnitor; provided, however, that the Indemnitor may not enter into any compromise or settlement unless (i) such compromise or settlement includes as an unconditional term thereof, the giving by each claimant or plaintiff to the Indemnitee of a release from all liability in respect of such Claim; and (ii) the Indemnitee consents to such compromise or settlement, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed unless such compromise or settlement involves (A) any admission of legal wrongdoing by the Indemnitee, (B) any payment by the Indemnitee that is not indemnified hereunder or (C) the imposition of any equitable relief against the Indemnitee, in which case ((A) – (C)) the Indemnitee may withhold its consent in its sole discretion. If Indemnitee determines in good faith that the defense is not being or ceases to be conducted diligently and in good faith, the Indemnitee shall have the right, at the expense of the Indemnitor, upon at least ten (10) Business Days’ prior written notice to the Indemnitor of its intent to do so, to undertake the defense of such Claim for the account of the Indemnitor (with counsel reasonably selected by the Indemnitee and approved by the Indemnitor, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld



or delayed). If the Indemnitee is defending such Claim, the Indemnitee shall keep the Indemnitor apprised of all material developments with respect to such Claim and promptly provide the Indemnitor with copies of all correspondence and documents exchanged by the Indemnitee and the opposing party(ies) to such litigation. If the Indemnitor has elected to defend such Claim or if the Indemnitor has otherwise acknowledged in writing its responsibility for indemnifying a Claim, the Indemnitee may not compromise or settle such litigation without the prior written consent of the Indemnitor, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed.
(c)The Indemnitee may participate in, but not control, any defense or settlement of any Claim controlled by the Indemnitor pursuant to this Section 8.2 and shall bear its own costs and expenses with respect to such participation; provided, however, that the Indemnitor shall bear such costs and expenses if counsel for the Indemnitor shall have reasonably determined that such counsel may not properly represent both the Indemnitor and the Indemnitee.
8.3     Exclusivity. From and after the Closing, other than in the event of fraud by a Party to this Agreement on the basis of the representations and warranties contained in this Agreement, this Article VIII will provide the exclusive remedy against either Party hereto for any breach of any representation, warranty, covenant or other claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement and/or the transactions contemplated herein, except nothing in this Agreement will prevent or otherwise limit either Party from seeking or obtaining injunctive or other equitable relief for any breach of any covenant or agreement set forth herein. The Parties hereto agree that the provisions in this Agreement relating to indemnification, and the limits imposed on Buyer’s remedies with respect to this Agreement and the transactions contemplated herein, were specifically bargained for between sophisticated parties and were specifically taken into account in the determination of the amounts to be paid to Seller hereunder.
8.4     Limits on Indemnification. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, the maximum aggregate amount of indemnifiable Damages that may be recovered from (a) Seller pursuant to Section 8.1(a) shall equal the Purchase Price, and (b) Buyer pursuant to Section 8.1(b) shall equal the Purchase Price.
8.5     Tax Treatment of Indemnity Payments. Any payments made to any Party pursuant to this Article VIII shall constitute an adjustment of the Purchase Price for Tax purposes and shall be treated as such by the Parties on their Tax Returns to the extent permitted by Legal Requirements.

11.8    Assignment. No Party will have the right to assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, by operation of law or otherwise, without the other Party’s express prior written consent. Any attempt to assign this Agreement without such consent, will be null and void. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any Party may assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, without the consent of the other Party: (a) to a Third Party that succeeds to all or substantially all of its assets or business related to this Agreement (whether by sale, merger, operation of law or otherwise); or (b) to an Affiliate of such party.

Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will bind and inure to the benefit of each Party’s successors and permitted assigns. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Buyer may not assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, without Seller’s consent, to the extent such assignment would reasonably be expected to increase any Taxes for which Seller is responsible pursuant to this Agreement.
11.9    Expenses. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all costs and expenses, including, without limitation, fees and disbursements of counsel, financial advisors and accountants, incurred in connection with this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby shall be paid by the Party incurring such costs and expenses, whether or not the Closing shall have occurred.
11.10Severability. If any provision of this Agreement, or the application thereof, becomes or is declared by a court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, void or unenforceable, the remainder of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect and shall be interpreted so as reasonably to effect the intent of the Parties hereto. The Parties hereto shall use commercially reasonable efforts to replace such void or unenforceable provision of this Agreement with a valid and enforceable provision that shall achieve, to the extent possible, the economic, business and other purposes of such void or unenforceable provision.
11.11Remedies Cumulative. Except as otherwise provided herein, any and all remedies herein expressly conferred upon a Party hereto shall be deemed cumulative with and not exclusive of any other remedy conferred hereby or by law or equity upon such Party, and the exercise by a Party hereto of any one remedy shall not preclude the exercise of any other remedy and nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed a waiver by any Party of any right to specific performance or injunctive relief.
11.12Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York, regardless of the laws that might otherwise govern under applicable principles of conflicts of law.
