shall constitute the Final Closing Statement, and the calculation of the Purchase Price based thereon (as so modified), shall be final and binding on all parties hereto.  All discussions related to

Closing Statement for purposes of this Agreement, and the calculation of the Purchase Price based thereon will be final and binding upon all parties, on the date the Independent Accountant delivers its final determination in writing to Buyer and to the Equityholder Representative.  The final determination of the Independent Accountant shall be enforceable to the same extent as an arbitral award

(b) Insurance.  At the Closing, Sellers shall cause the Company to (at Seller's expense) obtain and fully pay the premium for an insurance and indemnification policy that provides coverage for a period of six (6) years from and after the Closing for events occurring prior to the Closing (the "D&O Insurance") that is no less favorable in the aggregate to the intended beneficiaries thereof than the Company's and/or its Subsidiaries' existing directors' and officers' liability insurance policy.

(f) Survival of Indemnification.  For a period of not less than six (6) years from the Closing, Buyer and the Company shall provide to the Indemnified Parties the same rights to exculpation, indemnification and advancement of expenses as provided to the Indemnified Parties under the provisions of the Company's and its Subsidiaries' Organizational Documents as in effect immediately prior to the Closing and provided to Buyer prior to the Closing, and the Company's and its Subsidiaries' Organizational Documents shall not contain any provisions contradictory to such rights.

(g) Non-Exclusivity.  The provisions of this Section 6.05 are in addition to, and not in substitution for, any other rights to indemnification or contribution that any such person may have by contract or otherwise.  Nothing in this Agreement, including this Section 6.05, is intended to, shall be construed to or shall release, waive or impair any rights to directors' and officers' insurance claims under any policy that is or has been in existence with respect to the Company, any of its Subsidiaries or the Indemnified Parties, it being understood and agreed that the indemnification provided for in this Section 6.05 is not prior to, or in substitution for, any such claims under any such policies.

(b) The Company shall, prior to the Closing Date, take such corporate action as is necessary to cause the Company Benefit Plan qualified under Section 401(k) of the Code (the "Company 401(k) Plan") to be terminated effective immediately prior to the Closing, subject to the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby.  In connection with the termination of the Company 401(k) Plan, the Company shall provide, or cause to be provided that, (i) all benefit accruals under the Company 401(k) Plan will be frozen and no new participants will be admitted to the Company 401(k) Plan on or after the Company 401(k) Plan termination date, (ii) any contribution due to the Company 401(k) Plan (including any participant elective contribution and any matching contribution related thereto) in respect of any period prior to, but not yet paid as of, the Company 401(k) Plan termination date will be contributed by the Company as soon as administratively feasible following the Company 401(k) Plan termination date, and (iii) all Company 401(k) Plan participant accounts will be one hundred percent (100%) vested effective on the Company 401(k) Plan termination date.  The Company shall provide to Buyer, prior to the Closing Date, written evidence reasonably acceptable to Buyer of the adoption by the applicable authorized governing body of the Company 401(k) Plan of resolutions authorizing the termination of the Company 401(k) Plan (and the form and substance of such resolutions shall be subject to Buyer's prior review and consent).  In addition, in connection with the termination of the Company 401(k) Plan, Buyer or its Affiliates, as applicable, shall take all steps reasonably necessary to permit each Company Employee who was participating in the Company 401(k) Plan immediately prior to the Closing to begin participating in a 401(k) plan maintained by Buyer or one of its Affiliates, subject to the eligibility requirements applicable to similarly situated employees of Buyer and its Affiliates as of the Closing, and, in connection therewith, Buyer or its Affiliates, as applicable, shall take all steps reasonably necessary to permit each Company Employee who was participating in the Company 401(k) Plan immediately prior to the Closing to begin participating in a 401(k) plan maintained by Buyer or one of its Affiliates, subject to the eligibility requirements applicable to similarly situated employees of Buyer and its Affiliates as of the Closing.

(c) Each Company Employee shall receive service credit for purposes of eligibility, vesting and benefit accrual under any employee benefit plans sponsored by Buyer or any of its Subsidiaries or Affiliates, including the Company and its Subsidiaries in which such Company Employee is eligible to participate on and following the Closing.  To the extent that any Company Employee participates in any health or group welfare benefit plan of Buyer or one of its Affiliates following the Closing, Buyer, shall use commercially reasonable efforts to (i) waive, or cause to be waived, any pre-existing condition limitations, exclusions, actively-at-work requirements and waiting periods, and (ii) recognize, or cause to be recognized, the dollar amount of all co-payments, deductibles and similar expenses incurred by each Company Employee (and his or her eligible dependents) during the calendar year in which the Closing occurs for purposes of satisfying such year's deductible and co-payment limitations under the relevant welfare benefit plans in which such Company Employee (and dependents) will be eligible to participate from and after the Closing.  From and after the Closing, Buyer shall provide, or shall cause its Subsidiaries, including the Company or any of its Subsidiaries to provide, notices and continuation coverage for each Company Employee and each spouse or dependent of a Company Employee who is an "M&A Qualified Beneficiary" (as such term is defined in Treasury Regulation Section 54.4980B-9) as a result of the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.


(d) Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing contained herein (i) shall be treated as an amendment of or an undertaking to amend any Company Benefit Plan; (ii) is intended to confer any third-party rights, benefits, remedies, obligations or Liabilities hereunder upon any person (including, without limitation, any director, officer or employee and any dependent or beneficiary thereof) other than the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns; or (iii) is intended to confer upon any Company Employee any right to continued employment or service with Buyer or any of its Subsidiaries or Affiliates (including the Company or any of its Subsidiaries).

Section 6.09Section 6.09     Seller One Indemnity.

(a) From and after the Closing, Seller One shall indemnify, reimburse and hold harmless Buyer, its Affiliates (including the Company and its Subsidiaries), and their respective officers, directors, employees, shareholders, members, managers, representatives, successors and assigns (collectively, "Buyer Indemnitees") from and against any and all Losses incurred by any Buyer Indemnitee arising out of, in connection with or relating to, and promptly reimburse all expenses incurred in defending against, or with respect to the defense of, any Action with respect to or arising from, the matters set forth on Section 6.09 of the Disclosure Schedules (the "Specified Matter").  For the avoidance of doubt, Seller One's obligation under this Section 6.09 shall extend to any Loss incurred by a Buyer Indemnitee with respect to any Indemnified Liabilities required to be paid by a Buyer Indemnitee to an Indemnified Party pursuant to Section 6.05 to the extent arising out of, in connection with, or relating to the Specified Matter.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Agreement, even if a Buyer Indemnitee would otherwise be entitled to recover a Loss pursuant to this Section 6.09, the maximum aggregate liability of Seller One pursuant to this Section 6.09 shall be an amount equal to the portion of the Final Purchase Price actually paid to Seller One.

(b) The right of any Buyer Indemnitee to seek indemnification under this Section 6.09 shall terminate sixty (60) days after the expiration of the applicable statute of limitations for any cause of action that may be asserted with respect to the Specified Matter (the "Survival Date"), except with respect to any pending claim submitted pursuant to this Section 6.09 prior to the applicable Survival Date.


(c) In order for a Buyer Indemnitee to seek indemnification under this Section 6.09, such Buyer Indemnitee (or Buyer on behalf of such Buyer Indemnitee) shall notify Seller One in writing reasonably promptly after such Buyer Indemnitee receives notice of the occurrence of the event giving rise to Buyer Indemnitee's claim for indemnification, specifying in reasonable detail (to the extent practicable) the basis of such claim (the "Specified Claim Notice"); provided, however, that failure to give such notification on a timely basis will not affect the indemnification provided hereunder except to the extent (and only to the extent) that Seller One is actually and materially prejudiced as a result of such failure. 

(d) Within ten (10) Business Days of Seller One's receipt of a Specified Claim Notice, Seller One shall deliver written notice stating (i) that Seller One agrees to indemnify Buyer Indemnitee in accordance with this Section 6.09 with respect to each matter contained in the Specified Claim Notice (an "Indemnification Acceptance Notice"), or (ii) that Seller One disputes in good faith the Buyer Indemnitee's assertion that Seller One is obligated to indemnify such Buyer Indemnitee with respect to any such claim, including a reasonable description of the basis for such good faith dispute (an "Indemnification Dispute Notice").  If Seller One fails to deliver an Indemnification Acceptance Notice or an Indemnification Dispute Notice to the Buyer Indemnitee within the ten (10) Business Day period following its receipt of a Specified Claim Notice, Seller One shall be deemed to have irrevocably agreed to indemnify Buyer Indemnitee for the Losses arising out of, in connection with or relating to each claim set forth in the Specified Claim Notice.

(e) If Seller One delivers an Indemnification Dispute Notice within the ten (10) Business Day period following receipt of a Specified Matter Notice, Seller One and Buyer Indemnitee will engage in good faith negotiations to resolve each such dispute for a period of ten (10) Business Days after deliver of the Indemnification Dispute Notice (such ten (10) Business Day period, as may be extended in writing by the Buyer Indemnitee and Seller One, the "Claim Negotiation Period").  If Seller One and the Buyer Indemnitee do not execute a written agreement resolving each dispute included in the Indemnification Dispute Notice within the Claim Negotiation Period, then either Seller One or the Buyer Indemnitee may seek to have such dispute resolved through litigation in accordance with Section 10.10 of this Agreement.  The prevailing party in any such litigation shall be entitled to recover its reasonable costs and fees in connection with such litigation, including reasonable attorney's fees.

(f) If any Action is threatened or commenced by any person against a Buyer Indemnitee arising out of, in connection with or relating to the Specified Matter (a "Third Party Claim"), in addition to delivery of a Specified Claim Notice with respect to such Third Party Claim, such Buyer Indemnitee will deliver to Seller One, reasonably promptly (and in any event within five (5) Business Days) after such Buyer Indemnitee's receipt thereof, copies of all material notices and documents (including court papers) received by such Buyer Indemnitee relating to the Third Party Claim; provided, however, that failure to give such notification on a timely basis will not affect the indemnification provided hereunder except to the extent (and only to the extent) that Seller One is actually and materially prejudiced as a result of such failure.

(g) In the event of a Third Party Claim, Seller One will be entitled to participate in (but not control) the defense thereof at Seller One's sole cost and expense; provided, that a Buyer Indemnitee's right to control its defense in a Third Party Claim shall not be determinative of the amount of any Loss which may be subject to this Section 6.09.  All parties hereto (including Seller Two) shall reasonably cooperate in good faith in the defense or prosecution of such Third Party Claim, including providing all records and information which are reasonably relevant to such Third Party Claim, and making employees available on a mutually convenient basis, during normal business hours and on reasonable prior notice, to provide additional information and explanation of any material provided hereunder.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, nothing in this Section 6.09 shall require any party to provide any documents or information the disclosure of which, in the disclosing party's good faith opinion, (i) would conflict with confidentiality obligations to which such party is bound, or (ii) would reasonably be expected to result in the forfeiture or waiver of the attorney-client privilege, attorney work product doctrine, or any other similar privilege.


(h) No Buyer Indemnitee will admit any liability with respect to, or settle, compromise or discharge, any Third Party Claim without the prior written consent of Seller One (not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed).  Buyer and Seller Two and their respective Affiliates shall not directly or indirectly provide support to a plaintiff in an Action relating to a Third Party Claim against Seller One in connection with the Specified Matter, provided that nothing herein shall restrict any person from (i) complying with any subpoena or court order or (ii) providing truthful testimony in any Action.

(i) Seller One shall not, and shall cause its Affiliates not to, without the prior written consent of Buyer, settle or compromise any pending or threatened Action subject to this Section 6.09 (whether or not a Buyer Indemnitee is an actual or potential party to such Action) or consent to the entry of any judgment that (i) does not, to the extent that any Buyer Indemnitee may have any Liability with respect to, or may be a potential party to, such Action, include as an unconditional term thereof the execution and delivery of a written release of each such Buyer Indemnitee from all Liability in respect of such Action on behalf of all claimants or plaintiffs or any class or purported class such claimant or plaintiff may purport to represent, (ii) includes any statement or admission of fact regarding culpability of, or a failure to act by or on behalf of, any Buyer Indemnitee, or (iii) in any manner involves any injunctive or non-monetary relief against any Buyer Indemnitee.

(j) Within thirty (30) days following Buyer's delivery of a written notice to Seller One describing in reasonable detail the amount of any Loss incurred by any Buyer Indemnitee that is subject to this Section 6.09 (including any Loss arising out of, in connection with or relating to a claim set forth in a Specified Claim Notice with respect to which Seller One has (i) delivered an Indemnification Acceptance Notice, (ii) failed to deliver an Indemnification Acceptance Notice or an Indemnification Dispute Notice to the Buyer Indemnitee within the ten (10) Business Day period following its receipt of such Specified Claim Notice, or (iii) otherwise agreed to or become required by Law to indemnify a Buyer Indemnitee), Seller One shall pay, or cause to be paid, to Buyer or any applicable Buyer Indemnitee, by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account or accounts specified in writing by Buyer, the amount of such Loss.

(k) The parties shall treat any indemnity payment made pursuant to this Section 6.09 as an adjustment to the Purchase Price for all Tax purposes, except as otherwise required by applicable Law.


Section 6.10Section 6.10     No Solicitation.  Between the date hereof and the Anticipated Closing Date, none of the Sellers, the Company nor any of their respective Representatives shall directly or indirectly (including by way of providing information regarding the Company, any of its Subsidiaries or their respective businesses to any person or providing access to any person) (a) solicit any offer, proposal or inquiry (oral, written or electronic), or encourage or facilitate the solicitation of any offer, proposal or inquiry (oral, written or electronic) relating to any potential Competing Transaction; (b) participate in, continue or engage in any discussion or negotiation relating to, furnish any information concerning the Company, any of its Subsidiaries or any property of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries with respect to, afford access to any of its or their properties or business records in connection with, or facilitate in any other manner any effort or attempt by any person other than Buyer to make or seek any potential Competing Transaction; or (c) enter into any agreement, arrangement or understanding (oral, written or electronic) relating to any potential Competing Transaction.  The Company shall promptly notify Buyer if any such offer or inquiry is received prior to the Anticipated Closing Date by, any such information is requested prior to the Anticipated Closing Date from or any such negotiation or discussion is sought to be initiated or continued prior to the Anticipated Closing Date with the Company, any of its Subsidiaries or any of their respective Representatives, including the nature and terms of any of the foregoing, the identity of the parties involved and any modification to the nature or terms relating to any potential Competing Transaction.  As used herein, "Competing Transaction" means a transaction (i) similar to the transactions contemplated hereby, or (ii) that could be inconsistent with, or that could otherwise preclude, the transactions contemplated hereby, including any (A) merger, consolidation, business combination, recapitalization, restructuring, sale or purchase of assets, securities or debt instruments, dissolution, liquidation or other similar transaction of or involving the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, or (B) other acquisition or equity investment transaction involving or otherwise relating to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, involving any other person other than Buyer or any of its Affiliates, including the formation of a partnership or joint venture with or for the Company or its Subsidiaries.  Each Seller and the Company shall, and shall cause its Affiliates to, advise their applicable officers, directors, managers, equityholders and employees of the existence of the foregoing covenants, and each Seller and the Company shall, and shall cause its Affiliates to respond to any inquiry received by their respective Representatives regarding any Competing Transaction prior to the Anticipated Closing Date by (x) stating that the Company and its Affiliates are subject to the foregoing covenants and (y) solely with respect to and communication received prior to the Anticipated Closing Date, promptly informing Buyer of the inquiring party and the nature of the inquiry.  Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if either Seller or the Company, has breached or otherwise failed to perform in any material respect its obligations under this Agreement in any manner that was the principal cause of the failure of the Closing to have occurred on or before the Anticipated Closing Date, then each reference to the "Anticipated Closing Date" in this Section 6.10 shall be deemed to instead refer to the "Seller Termination Date".

Section 6.11Section 6.11     Affiliate Arrangements.  As of or prior to the Closing, the Company and the Sellers shall, and shall cause the Company's Subsidiaries to, terminate, discharge, settle or extinguish all Affiliate Arrangements in a manner and on such terms that shall not subject the Company, its Subsidiaries or Buyer or their respective Affiliates to any Liability or performance obligation from and after the Closing or require the Company or its Affiliates to make any termination, indemnity or other payment from and after the Closing.


Section 6.12Section 6.12     Confidentiality Obligations of Buyer.

(a) The Confidentiality Agreement is terminated as of the date hereof and is of no further force or effect.

(b) During the period from the date hereof through the earlier of (x) one (1) year following the termination of this Agreement in accordance with its terms and (y) the Closing Date, Buyer shall, and shall cause its Representatives to, keep the Confidential Information confidential and not disclose any of it to any person in any manner whatsoever or use the Confidential Information for any purpose other than in furtherance of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement; provided, however, that Buyer may (i) make any disclosure of the Confidential Information to which the Company gives its prior written consent, (ii) disclose any of such information to such Representatives who need to know such information and who are advised of the confidentiality obligations that attach to the Confidential Information (it being agreed that Buyer will be responsible for any violation of the provisions of this Section 6.12(b) by any of its Representatives), and (iii) disclose that information which, on the advice of counsel, is required to be disclosed by Law or pursuant to a demand of any Governmental Entity (which requirement or demand shall not have been caused by any act of Buyer or its Representatives in violation of this Agreement).  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the foregoing, in the event that Buyer or any of its Representatives is required to or reasonably believes that it is required by Law to disclose any of the Confidential Information, such party shall, to the extent legally permissible, provide the Company with prompt written notice of any such requirement so that the Company may seek (at its cost and expense) a protective order or other appropriate remedy or waive compliance with the provisions of this Agreement; provided that, in the event that such protective order or other appropriate remedy or waiver by the Company is not obtained or granted, and Buyer or any of its Representatives is nonetheless, on the advice of counsel, required by Law to disclose Confidential Information, such person may disclose to, or as required by, the applicable Governmental Entity only that portion of the Confidential Information that such counsel advises is legally required to be disclosed (and any such disclosure shall be made only to such persons to whom such counsel advises such information is legally required to be disclosed); provided that Buyer and its Representatives shall exercise reasonable best efforts (at their cost and expense) to preserve the confidentiality of the Confidential Information, including by reasonably cooperating with the Company to obtain an appropriate protective order or other reliable assurance that confidential treatment will be accorded the Confidential Information.

Section 6.13Section 6.13     Confidentiality Obligations of the Sellers; Restrictive Covenants.

(a) From and after the Closing, each Seller shall, and shall cause its Affiliates and Representatives to, keep the Confidential Information confidential and not disclose any of it to any person in any manner whatsoever or use the Confidential Information for any purpose other than as expressly permitted by this Agreement; provided, however, that a Seller may (i) make any disclosure of the Confidential Information to which Buyer gives its prior written consent, (ii) disclose any of such information to such Seller's or its Affiliates' Representatives who need to know such information and who are advised of the confidentiality obligations that attach to the Confidential Information (it being agreed that such Seller will be responsible for any violation of the provisions of this Section 6.13(a) by any of its Affiliates or its or their Representatives), and (iii) disclose that information which, on the advice of counsel, is required to be disclosed by Law or pursuant to a demand of any Governmental Entity (which requirement or demand shall not have been caused by any act of a Seller, its Affiliates or its or their Representatives in violation of this Agreement).  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the foregoing, in the event that a Seller or any of its Representatives is required to or reasonably believes that it is required by Law to disclose any of the Confidential Information, such party shall, to the extent legally permissible, provide Buyer with prompt written notice of any such requirement so that Buyer may seek (at its cost and expense) a protective order or other appropriate remedy or waive compliance with the provisions of this Agreement; provided that, in the event that such protective order or other appropriate remedy or waiver by Buyer is not obtained or granted, and such Seller or its Representative is nonetheless, on the advice of counsel, required by Law to disclose Confidential Information, such person may disclose to, or as required by, the applicable Governmental Entity only that portion of the Confidential Information that such counsel advises is legally required to be disclosed (and any such disclosure shall be made only to such persons to whom such counsel advises such information is legally required to be disclosed); provided that each Seller and their respective Representatives shall exercise reasonable best efforts (at their cost and expense) to preserve the confidentiality of the Confidential Information, including by reasonably cooperating with Buyer, to obtain an appropriate protective order or other reliable assurance that confidential treatment will be accorded the Confidential Information.


(b) For a period of five (5) years in the United States and the rest of the world (other than the European Union), and a period of three (3) years in the European Union, in each case from and after the Closing Date, Seller One shall not, and shall cause its Affiliates not to, directly or indirectly:

(i) engage in, own, manage or operate anywhere in the world (the "Territory"), a business the same as, substantially similar to, or that materially competes with, the business as conducted by the Company and its Subsidiaries as of the date hereof, including the CDMO Business (collectively, the "Business"); provided, however, that this Section 6.13(b)(i) shall not prohibit or restrict Seller One or its Affiliates from engaging in, owning, managing or operating:

(A) Seller One's and its Affiliates' current or currently proposed point-of-care system, point-of-care products, point-of-care systems, point-of-care processing, and point-of-care development services for the development, manufacturing or processing of therapeutics, processes, systems and technologies  to treat patients in a point-of-care clinical, hospital or institutional setting, any future point-of-care services substantially related to the foregoing, and advanced therapy medicinal products either proprietary to Seller One and its Affiliates or proprietary to a third-party partner (including a joint venture partner) or collaborator, which includes research, development, systems, manufacturing and processing of therapeutic technology products, systems, and processes, methods or services;

(B) Seller One's and Affiliates' research, manufacturing, development and other activities related to the research, development, manufacturing, discovery and commercialization of therapeutic products or technologies, and processes, systems, methods or services thereof for its own account or in  order to make such products or services available for the account of their third-party partners (including joint venture partners) or collaborators (including such therapeutic products, processes or technologies in which Seller One or any of its Affiliates has an economic interest or any relationship with any third-party in which Seller One or any of its Affiliates has an economic interest or that are created, developed, manufactured or sold by a joint venture, partnership or collaboration between Seller One or any of its Affiliates and a third-party); or


(C) the CDMO businesses conducted by Subsidiaries of Seller One in (1) the State of Israel, solely (x) for customers located within the State of Israel or (y) with respect to therapies intended for distribution solely within the State of Israel, or (2) South Korea, solely (x) for customers located within South Korea and (y) with respect to therapies intended for distribution solely within South Korea; provided, that for purposes of this clause (C), neither Seller One nor its Affiliates may be involved in the manufacture of products on a contract basis for third-party customers in any jurisdiction other than the State of Israel or South Korea; or

(ii) (A) solicit, or (B) participate in any material respect in the operation of (as an owner, equity holder, financing source, service provider or otherwise) any business that solicits, any person that is or was a client or customer of the Company or its Subsidiaries at any time during the eighteen (18) month period prior to the Closing Date for purposes of diverting such client's or customer's use of services of the Business from Buyer or its Affiliates (including the Company and its Subsidiaries) in connection with the Business as conducted by Buyer and its Affiliates (including the Company and its Subsidiaries) following the Closing;

provided, however, that the beneficial ownership (within the meaning of Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act) of less than two percent (2%) of the outstanding shares of common stock of a publicly held corporation that is engaged in the Business within the Territory shall be permitted.

(c) For a period of three (3) years from and after the Closing Date anywhere in the Territory, each Seller shall not, and shall cause its Affiliates not to, directly or indirectly, solicit for employment or hire any then-current employee of the Company or its Subsidiaries as of the Closing or any employee of Buyer or its Affiliates listed on Section 6.13(c) of the Disclosure Schedules or any former employee of the Company or its Subsidiaries as of the Closing or any employee of Buyer or its Affiliates listed on Section 6.13(c) of the Disclosure Schedules who left the employ of Buyer or its Affiliates (including the Company or its Subsidiaries) within three (3) months prior to the time of such solicitation (in either case, a "Restricted Employee") or request, induce or advise any Restricted Employee to leave the employ of Buyer or such Affiliate, without the prior written consent of Buyer; provided that (i) a general offer to the public of employment with any non-competing business that is not specifically directed at any Restricted Employee shall not be deemed prohibited hereunder, and (ii) soliciting or hiring any individual who has not been employed by the Company or its Subsidiaries or any employee of Buyer or its Affiliates listed on Section 6.13(c) of the Disclosure Schedules for a period of nine (9) months at the time of the solicitation or hiring shall not be deemed prohibited hereunder.


(d) The nature and scope of the foregoing provisions have been carefully considered by Buyer and each Seller. Each Seller acknowledges and agrees that the covenants contained in this Section 6.13 are essential elements of this Agreement and that, but for these covenants, Buyer would not have agreed to acquire the Shares or otherwise become party to this Agreement.  Buyer and each Seller hereby agree and acknowledge that the duration, scope and geographic areas applicable to such provisions are fair, reasonable and necessary under the circumstances existing at the date of this Agreement and that adequate compensation has been received by such Seller for its obligations under this Section 6.13.  If, however, for any reason any court determines that any such restriction is not reasonable or that the consideration made available with respect to such restriction is inadequate, such restriction shall be interpreted, modified or rewritten to include as much of the duration, scope and geographic area identified in this Section 6.13 as will render such restrictions valid and enforceable, and the other provisions hereof shall remain in full force and effect.

(e) Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, in the event of a breach or threatened breach of this Section 6.13, the non-breaching party shall be entitled, without the posting of a bond or other security, to an injunction restraining such breach or threatened breach, and a breaching party acknowledges the inadequacy of relief in damages with respect thereto.  The foregoing shall not be construed as prohibiting any party from pursuing any other remedy available to it for such breach or threatened breach.

Section 6.14Section 6.14     Further Assurances.  Prior to, on and after the Closing Date, each of the parties hereto shall execute such documents and take such further actions as may be reasonably required or desirable to put Buyer in operating control of the assets, properties and business of the Company and its Subsidiaries as of the Closing, to assist Buyer in exercising all rights with respect thereto and to carry out the purpose and intent of this Agreement.  Each party shall use its respective reasonable best efforts to take such other actions to ensure that, to the extent within its control or capable of influence by it, the transactions contemplated by this Agreement shall be fully carried out in a timely fashion.

Section 10.02   Amendment.  This Agreement may be amended by the parties hereto at any time prior to the Closing.  This Agreement may not be amended except by an instrument in writing signed by each of the parties hereto.

Section 10.03Section 10.03   Waiver.  At any time prior to the Closing, the parties hereto may (a) extend the time for the performance of any of the obligations or other acts of the other, (b) waive any breach or inaccuracy of the representations and warranties of the other contained herein or in any document delivered pursuant hereto and (c) subject to Section 10.02, waive compliance by the other with any of the covenants or conditions contained herein.  Any such extension or waiver shall be valid only if set forth in an instrument in writing signed by the party or parties to be bound thereby, but such extension or waiver or failure to insist on strict compliance with an obligation, covenant, agreement or condition shall not operate as a waiver of, or estoppel with respect to, any subsequent or other failure.

Section 10.04Section 10.04   Severability.  If any term or other provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced by any rule of Law or public policy, all other conditions and provisions of this Agreement shall nevertheless remain in full force and effect so long as the economic or legal substance of the transactions contemplated hereby is not affected in any manner materially adverse to any party.  Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced, the parties hereto shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect the original intent of the parties as closely as possible in an acceptable manner to the end that the transactions contemplated hereby are fulfilled to the extent possible.

Section 10.05Section 10.05   Entire Agreement.  This Agreement (together with the Annexes, Exhibits, Disclosure Schedules and the other documents delivered pursuant hereto) constitutes the entire agreement of the parties hereto and supersedes all prior agreements and undertakings, both written and oral, among the parties hereto, or any of them, with respect to the subject matter hereof.

Section 10.06Section 10.06   Assignment.  Neither this Agreement nor any of the rights, interests or obligations under this Agreement shall be assigned or transferred, in whole or in part, by operation of Law or otherwise by any of the parties hereto without the prior written consent of the other parties hereto; provided that Buyer may assign all or any portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement without such consent to any Affiliate of Buyer, which assignment shall not relieve Buyer of its obligations hereunder.  Any assignment or transfer in violation of the preceding sentence shall be void.


Section 10.07Section 10.07   Parties in Interest.  Except for:  (a) Section 6.05, which shall be for the benefit of each Indemnified Party, his or her heirs, executors or administrators and his or her Representatives, (b) Section 6.09, which shall be for the benefit of the Buyer Indemnitees, (c) Section 10.14, which shall be for the benefit of the Prior Company Counsel, (d) Section 10.15, which shall be for the benefit of the Non-Party Affiliates and (e) Section 10.16 which shall be for the benefit of the Released Parties, each of which is hereby intended to be an express third-party beneficiary thereof, the parties hereto hereby agree that their respective representations, warranties and covenants set forth herein are solely for the benefit of the other parties hereto, in accordance with and subject to the terms of this Agreement, and this Agreement is not intended to, and does not, confer upon any person other than the parties hereto any rights or remedies hereunder, including, the right to rely upon the representations and warranties set forth herein.  The parties hereto further agree that the rights of third-party beneficiaries under Section 6.05, Section 6.09, Section 10.14, Section 10.15 and Section 10.16 shall not arise unless and until the Closing occurs.  Any inaccuracies in such representations and warranties may be subject to waiver by the parties hereto in accordance with Section 10.03 without notice or Liability to any other person.

Section 10.08Section 10.08   Mutual Drafting; Interpretation; Headings; Disclosure Schedules.

(a) Each party hereto has participated in the drafting of this Agreement, which each party acknowledges is the result of extensive negotiations between the parties hereto.  If an ambiguity or question of intent or interpretation arises, this Agreement shall be construed as if drafted jointly by the parties hereto, and no presumption or burden of proof shall arise favoring or disfavoring any party by virtue of the authorship of any provision.  For purposes of this Agreement, whenever the context requires:  (i) the singular number shall include the plural, and vice versa; (ii) the masculine gender shall include the feminine and neuter genders; (iii) the feminine gender shall include the masculine and neuter genders; and (iv) the neuter gender shall include masculine and feminine genders.  As used in this Agreement, the words "include" and "including," and words of similar meaning, shall not be deemed to be terms of limitation, but rather shall be deemed to be followed by the words "without limitation."  Except as otherwise indicated, all references in this Agreement to "Sections," "Annexes" and "Exhibits," are intended to refer to Sections of this Agreement and the Annexes and Exhibits to this Agreement.  All references in this Agreement to "$" are intended to refer to U.S. dollars.  All references in this Agreement to "€" or "EUR" are intended to refer to Euros (the currency of the member states of the European Union).  For purposes of determining the applicability of any provision of Section 4.16(a) to any Contract containing payment terms denominated in, or otherwise involving payment or other consideration in any currency other than U.S. dollars, the relevant amount of such other currency shall be converted into U.S. dollars based on the exchange rate applicable to such other currency as published by the Wall Street Journal as of the Business Day immediately prior to the date hereof.  For purposes of determining the applicability of, or compliance with, any provision of Article VI which contains an amount expressed in U.S. dollars with respect to any matter involving any currency other than U.S. dollars, the relevant amount of such other currency shall be converted into U.S. dollars based on the exchange rate applicable to such other currency as published by the Wall Street Journal on the relevant date of determination.  The term "or" shall not be deemed to be exclusive and shall have the meaning commonly ascribed to the term "and/or", and the words "will" and "will not" are expressions of command and not merely expressions of future intent or expectation, in each case, unless the context otherwise requires.  The words "hereof," "herein" and "hereunder" and words of similar import, when used in this Agreement, refer to this Agreement as a whole and not to any particular provision of this Agreement.  References herein to "as of the date hereof," "as of the date of this Agreement" or words of similar import shall be deemed to mean "as of immediately prior to the execution and delivery of this Agreement."  The headings contained in this Agreement are for reference purposes only and shall not affect in any way the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement.  When calculating the period of time before which, within which or following which any act is to be done or step is to be taken pursuant to this Agreement, the date that is the reference date in calculating such period shall be excluded.  If the last day of such period is a non-Business Day, the period in question shall end on the next succeeding Business Day.  Any action required to be taken "within" a specified time period following the occurrence of an event shall be required to be taken by no later than 11:59 p.m. local time in New York City on the last day of such time period.  The word "extent" in the phrase "to the extent" shall mean the degree to which a subject or other thing extends and such phrase shall not mean "if".  The phrase "ordinary course of business" means, with respect to the Company or its Subsidiaries, the ordinary and usual course of day-to-day operations of the Company and its Subsidiaries consistent with past practice.  Any Contract, instrument or Law defined or referred to herein means such Contract, instrument or Law as from time to time amended, modified or supplemented, whether or not so specified.  All documents and agreements relating to the Company or its Subsidiaries that have been posted, at least three (3) Business Days prior to the date hereof, to the electronic data room established by or on behalf of the Company with respect to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement shall be deemed to have been "delivered", "provided" or "made available" (or any phrase of similar import) to Buyer by the Company.


(b) The information in the Disclosure Schedules constitutes (i) exceptions or qualifications to representations, warranties, covenants and obligations of the Sellers and the Company as set forth in this Agreement or (ii) descriptions or lists of assets and liabilities and other items referred to in this Agreement.  Any disclosure made in any Schedule to this Agreement numbered to correspond to any Section of Article III or Article IV shall be deemed to be a disclosure made with respect to the representations and warranties in any other Section of Article III or Article IV if the relevance of such disclosure to such other representations or warranties is reasonably apparent on its face notwithstanding the absence of an appropriate cross-reference.  The Disclosure Schedules shall not be construed as indicating that any disclosed information is required to be disclosed, and no disclosure shall be construed as an admission that such information is material to, or required to be disclosed by, the Sellers or the Company.  The Sellers and the Company may, at their option, include in the Disclosure Schedules items that are not material, and such inclusion, or any references to dollar amounts, shall not be deemed to be an acknowledgement or representation that such items are material, to establish any standard of materiality or to define further the meaning of such terms (including Company Material Adverse Effect) for purposes of this Agreement.  No disclosure on the Disclosure Schedules relating to a possible breach or violation of any Contract or Law shall be construed as an admission or indication that a breach or violation exists or has actually occurred.  The Disclosure Schedules constitute a part of this Agreement and are incorporated into this Agreement for all purposes as if fully set forth herein.  Capitalized terms used in the Disclosure Schedules that are not defined therein shall have the meanings given them in this Agreement.


Section 10.09Section 10.09   Governing Law.  This Agreement, and any disputes arising from or relating to the interpretation, construction, validity, enforcement, or enforceability of this Agreement, or any of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, including all Actions (whether in contract or in tort, at law or in equity, or granted by statute) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the Laws of the State of Delaware, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of Law that would require the application of the Laws of any other jurisdiction.

Section 10.10Section 10.10   Venue.  Each party irrevocably agrees that any legal action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement brought by any other party or its successors or assigns shall be brought and determined in any appropriate state or federal court located in the Borough of Manhattan, New York and any appellate courts therefrom, and each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the aforesaid courts for itself and with respect to its property, generally and unconditionally, with regard to any such action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby.  Each of the parties hereto agrees not to commence any Action, suit or proceeding relating thereto except in the courts described above in New York City in the Borough of Manhattan, other than actions in any court of competent jurisdiction to enforce any judgment, decree or award rendered by any such court in New York City as described herein.  Each party hereby irrevocably waives, and agrees not to assert, by way of motion, as a defense, counterclaim or otherwise, in any action or proceeding with respect to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby, any claim (a) that it is not personally subject to the jurisdiction of the above-named courts for any reason other than the failure to lawfully serve process, and any such process may be served by any permitted means of notice under Section 10.01 (other than email), (b) that it or its property is exempt or immune from the jurisdiction of any such court or from any legal process commenced in such courts and (c) to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Law, that (i) the suit, action or proceeding in such courts is brought in an inconvenient forum, (ii) the venue of such suit, action or proceeding is improper and (iii) this Agreement, or the subject matter hereof, may not be enforced in or by such courts.

Section 10.11Section 10.11   Waiver of Jury Trial and Certain Damages.  EACH PARTY ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT ANY CONTROVERSY WHICH MAY ARISE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT IS LIKELY TO INVOLVE COMPLICATED AND DIFFICULT ISSUES, AND THEREFORE IT HEREBY IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVES ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN RESPECT OF ANY LITIGATION DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OF THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY.  EACH PARTY CERTIFIES AND ACKNOWLEDGES THAT (I) NO REPRESENTATIVE, AGENT OR ATTORNEY OF ANY OTHER PARTY HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PARTY WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, SEEK TO ENFORCE THE FOREGOING WAIVER, (II) IT UNDERSTANDS AND HAS CONSIDERED THE IMPLICATIONS OF THE FOREGOING WAIVER, (III) IT MAKES THE FOREGOING WAIVER VOLUNTARILY, AND (IV) IT HAS BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION 10.11.

Section 10.12Section 10.12   Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed in two or more counterparts, and by the different parties hereto in separate counterparts, each of which when executed shall be deemed to be an original but all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same agreement.  The exchange of a fully executed Agreement (in counterparts or otherwise) by facsimile or by electronic delivery in.pdf format shall be sufficient to bind the parties hereto to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.


Section 10.13Section 10.13   Specific Performance.  Each party hereto agrees that irreparable damage would occur to a party if any provision of this Agreement were breached or not performed by the other party in accordance with the terms hereof.  It is accordingly agreed that, prior to the valid termination hereof, each party hereto shall be entitled to an injunction or injunctions, specific performance or other equitable relief to prevent breaches of this Agreement by the other party hereto and to enforce specifically the terms and provisions of this Agreement, in addition to any other remedy, at law or in equity, to which it is entitled.  Each party further agrees that (a) no such party will oppose the granting of an injunction, specific performance and other equitable relief as provided herein on the basis that the other party has an adequate remedy at law or that an award of specific performance is not an appropriate remedy for any reason at law or equity and (b) no other party or any other person shall be required to obtain, furnish or post any bond or similar instrument in connection with or as a condition to obtaining any remedy referred to in this Section 10.13, and each party irrevocably waives any right it may have to require the obtaining, furnishing or posting of any such bond or similar instrument.

Section 10.14Section 10.14   Legal Representation.

(a) Buyer and the Company (on behalf of itself and its Subsidiaries) covenants and agrees that, following the Closing, DLA Piper LLP (US) (the "Prior Company Counsel") has acted as legal counsel to the Sellers, the Company and its Subsidiaries in connection with the negotiation, preparation, execution and delivery of and performance under this Agreement and acknowledges and agrees that, following consummation of the Sale and the other transactions contemplated hereby, Prior Company Counsel (or any of its successors) may serve as counsel to the Sellers and their Affiliates in connection with any Action, claim or obligation arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the other Transaction Documents or the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby, notwithstanding such prior representation of the Sellers, the Company and its Subsidiaries.  Buyer hereby consents to such future representation of Sellers and their Affiliates by Prior Company Counsel and waives any conflict of interest arising therefrom and Buyer shall cause any of its Affiliates to consent to and waive any conflict of interest arising from such representation.  Buyer, on its own behalf and on behalf of its Affiliates and Representatives, including the Company following the Closing, hereby irrevocably acknowledges and agrees that all communications created or exchanged prior to the Closing between, and all other documents created prior to Closing for the purpose of rendering or facilitating legal advice by, (i) the Sellers and/or Company or its Subsidiaries or any of Affiliate(s) of any of the foregoing and/or (ii) Prior Company Counsel, in each case, made in connection with the negotiation, preparation, execution and delivery of and performance under, or any dispute or proceeding arising out of or relating to, this Agreement, any other Transaction Document or any other agreement contemplated hereby or thereby or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, or any matter relating to any of the foregoing, do not lose any status they may have as attorney-client privileged documents or work product  (collectively, the "Seller Privileged Documents") by reason of this Agreement, any other Transaction Document, or any other agreement contemplated hereby or thereby or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby and, from and after Closing, the Seller Privileged Documents and any legal privilege(s) or similar protections applicable to such documents are deemed to be the sole property of the Equityholder Representative, and, from and after the Closing, Buyer shall not, and shall not permit its Affiliates or Representatives to, claim that any such privilege has been waived as to the Seller Privileged Documents by reason of this Agreement, any other Transaction Document, or any other agreement contemplated hereby or thereby or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby.  In the event that a dispute arises after the Closing between the Buyer, the Company, or any of its Subsidiaries, on the one hand, and a third-party, not including the Sellers or any of their Affiliates, on the other hand, Buyer or the Company will either assert any privilege necessary to prevent the disclosure of Seller Privileged Documents to such third party or will provide Sellers with sufficient advance notice of the potential for each specific disclosure and sufficient opportunity to appear and defend such privilege and prevent such disclosure at the sole cost of Sellers.


(b) Each Seller hereby acknowledges, on its own behalf and on behalf of its Affiliates and other Representatives that Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP ("Fried Frank") has acted as legal counsel to Buyer in connection with the negotiation, preparation, execution and delivery of and performance under this Agreement and acknowledges and agrees that, following consummation of the Sale and the other transactions contemplated hereby, Fried Frank (or any successor) may serve as counsel to Buyer, the Company and any Affiliates of Buyer in connection with any Action, claim or obligation arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the other Transaction Documents or the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby, notwithstanding such prior representation of Buyer.  Each Seller hereby consents to such future representation of Buyer and its Affiliates by Fried Frank and waives any conflict of interest arising therefrom and each Seller shall cause any of its Affiliates to consent to and waive any conflict of interest arising from such representation.  Each Seller, on its own behalf and on behalf of its Affiliates and other Representatives, hereby irrevocably acknowledges and agrees that all communications created or exchanged prior to the Closing between, and all other documents created prior to Closing for the purpose of rendering or facilitating legal advice by, Buyer and/or Fried Frank, in each case, made in connection with the negotiation, preparation, execution and delivery of and performance under, or any dispute or proceeding arising out of or relating to, this Agreement, any other Transaction Document or any other agreement contemplated hereby or thereby or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, or any matter relating to any of the foregoing, do not lose any status they may have as attorney-client privileged documents or work product (collectively, the "Buyer Privileged Documents") by reason of this Agreement, any other Transaction Document, or any other agreement contemplated hereby or thereby or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby and are deemed to be the sole property of Buyer, and, from and after the Closing, such Seller shall not, and shall not permit its Affiliates or other Representatives to, claim that any such privilege has been waived as to the Buyer Privileged Documents by reason of this Agreement, any other Transaction Document, or any other agreement contemplated hereby or thereby or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby.

Section 10.15Section 10.15   Limitation on Recourse.  Subject to the terms thereof, this Agreement may only be enforced against, and all claims or causes of action (whether in contract, in tort, at law, in equity or otherwise) that may be based upon, arise out of or relate to this Agreement, or the negotiation, execution, termination, performance or non-performance of this Agreement (including any representation or warranty made in or in connection with this Agreement or as an inducement to enter into this Agreement), may be made only against the entities that are expressly identified as parties hereto (but only to the extent of the specific obligations of such parties set forth herein).  No person who is not a named party to this Agreement, including any past, present or future officer, director, employee, agent, general or limited partner, manager, management company, member, stockholder, equity holder, controlling person, Representative or Affiliate, or any heir, executor, administrator, successor or assign of any of the foregoing, of any named party to this Agreement ("Non-Party Affiliates"), shall have any Liability (whether in contract or in tort, at law or in equity, or based upon any theory that seeks to impose Liability of an entity party against its owners or Affiliates) for any Liability based on, in respect of, by reason of, arising under, out of, in connection with, or related in any manner to this Agreement.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 10.15, nothing in this Section 10.15 shall absolve any non-party to this Agreement of liability for any constructive or actual fraudulent transfer or other scheme to prevent the enforcement of any judgment or award against any party to this Agreement.
