(a) any failure of any representation or warranty made by Seller in this Agreement (including the Seller Disclosure Letter and any exhibit or schedule to the Seller Disclosure Letter) to be true and correct as of the Agreement Date and as of the Closing Date as though such representation or warranty were made as of the Closing Date (except in the case of representations and warranties which by their terms speak only as of a specific date or dates, which representations and warranties shall be true and correct as of such date);


(b) any breach of or default in connection with any of the covenants or agreements made by Seller in this Agreement;

(c) any Excluded Liability;

(d) any Excluded Asset; and

(e) any Fraud by or on behalf of Seller.

Furthermore, the Plan of Liquidation shall provide that, as a condition to the distribution of the Purchase Price to the Securityholders thereunder, each shall agree on a several and not a joint basis in accordance with their Pro Rata Share, to assume Seller's indemnification obligations under this ARTICLE VIII (provided, that the total liability of a Securityholder for claims arising out of or resulting from this ARTICLE VIII or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement shall be limited to the aggregate consideration distributed to such Securityholder pursuant to the Plan of Liquidation, other than in the case of Fraud committed by such Securityholder) and appoint a Securityholders' agent to act on behalf of Seller and the Securityholders in respect of the indemnification obligations.  Following the distribution of the Purchase Price pursuant to the Plan of Liquidation, any Securityholders' agent designated as provided in this paragraph shall be entitled to act on behalf of Seller and any Securityholder under this Agreement.

8.2 Indemnification Limitations. The indemnification provided for in Section 8.1 above shall be subject to the following limitations:

(a) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, no Indemnified Person may make a claim from the Escrow Fund in respect of any claim for indemnification that is made pursuant to Section 8.1 (and that does not involve Fraud or any inaccuracy or breach of any of the Fundamental Matters and IP Matters), unless and until the aggregate amount of all Indemnifiable Damages is greater than 0.50% of the Purchase Price (the "Threshold"), in which case Seller shall be liable and required to pay for all Indemnifiable Damages (including the amount below the Threshold).

(b) If the Asset Purchase is consummated, recovery from the Escrow Fund shall be the sole and exclusive remedy for the indemnity obligations under this Agreement for the matters listed in Section 8.1(a), except for claims to the extent arising out of or resulting from (i) any failure of the representations and warranties set forth in Section 2.9 (the "IP Matters") and (ii) any failure of any of the Fundamental Representations (the matters set forth in clause (ii), the "Fundamental Matters"). Recourse for indemnity claims in respect of Fundamental Matters and IP Matters shall be limited to 20% of the Purchase Price, in the case of IP Matters, and the Purchase Price, in the case of Fundamental Matters, in each case calculated on the basis of the Purchaser Stock Price.

(c) At the election of Seller, all Indemnifiable Claims not settled from the Escrow Fund may be settled through the return of shares of Purchaser Common Stock or payment of cash.  For purposes of the satisfaction of all Indemnifiable Damages, Purchaser Common Stock shall be valued at the Purchaser Stock Price (including in the event that Indemnifiable Damages arise following a distribution of the Purchase Price to the Securityholders pursuant to the Plan of Liquidation). 


(d) The Indemnified Persons shall first seek recovery of Indemnifiable Damages from the Escrow Fund; provided that the amounts that an Indemnified Person recovers from the Escrow Amount pursuant to any Fundamental Matters shall not reduce the amount that an Indemnified Person may recover with respect to claims that are not Fundamental Matters.  By way of illustration and not limitation, assuming there are no other claims for indemnification, compensation or reimbursement, in the event that Indemnifiable Damages resulting from a Fundamental Matter are first satisfied from the Escrow Amount and such recovery fully depletes the Escrow Amount, the maximum amount recoverable by an Indemnified Person pursuant to a subsequent claim that is not a Fundamental Matter shall continue to be the full value of the Escrow Amount, irrespective of the fact that the Escrow Amount was used to satisfy such Fundamental Matter, such that the amount recoverable for such two claims would be the same regardless of the chronological order in which they were made;

(e) Except for equitable remedies, from and after the Closing, the rights to indemnification, compensation and reimbursement set forth in this ARTICLE VIII shall be the sole and exclusive remedy of the Indemnified Persons against Seller with respect to any Indemnifiable Damages arising under, pursuant or related to this Agreement; provided that, for the avoidance of doubt, nothing in this Section 8.2(e) shall limit the rights of the Indemnified Persons against Seller in the event of Fraud by Seller.

(f) Other.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, payments by Seller in respect of any Indemnifiable Damages shall be calculated (A) net of all insurance proceeds or other indemnification or contribution payments from any third party, if any, actually received by an Indemnified Person less any increase in premiums or other recovery costs to such Person as a result of such claim for insurance proceeds, (ii) on the basis of actual losses and out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred by an Indemnified Person, without regard to reductions or diminutions in value, lost opportunities or other speculative damages and (iii) without regard to any special, incidental, consequential, punitive or exemplary damages. The Indemnified Party shall use commercially reasonable efforts to seek recovery under insurance policies or indemnity, contribution or other similar agreements for any Indemnifiable Claims prior to seeking indemnification under this Agreement.

8.3 Escrow Fund.  The Escrow Amount shall be deposited with Citibank, N.A. as escrow agent (the "Escrow Agent"), such deposit, together with any interest that may be earned thereon, to constitute an escrow fund (the "Escrow Fund") and to be governed by the provisions set forth herein and in the Escrow Agreement.  The Escrow Fund shall be available to compensate Purchaser on behalf of itself and any other Indemnified Party for Indemnifiable Damages pursuant to the indemnification obligations of Seller.  Purchaser and Seller shall each pay 50% of the fees and expenses of the Escrow Agent in connection with this Agreement and the Escrow Agreement.

8.4 Period for Claims

(a) Except as set forth in this Section 8.4, the period during which claims may be made (the "Claims Period") for Indemnifiable Damages to the extent arising out of or resulting from the matters in Section 8.1(a) (other than with respect to any breach of any of the Fundamental Representations or IP Matters) shall commence at the Closing and terminate the day after the date that is 18 months following the Closing Date (the "Escrow Period"). The Claims Period for Indemnifiable Damages to the extent arising out of or resulting from the Fundamental Matters and IP Matters shall commence at the Closing and terminate upon the later of (x) expiration of the applicable statute of limitations or (y) the three-year anniversary of the Closing Date (the "Fundamental Claims Period").  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, such portion of the Escrow Fund at the conclusion of the Escrow Period as in the reasonable judgment of Purchaser reasonably necessary to satisfy any unresolved or unsatisfied claims for Indemnifiable Damages specified in any Claims Certificate delivered to the Escrow Agent and Seller prior to expiration of the Escrow Period (the "Reserve Amount") shall remain in the Escrow Fund until such claims for Indemnifiable Damages have been resolved or satisfied. The remainder of the Escrow Fund, if any, shall be paid to Seller promptly (and in any event within 10 Business Days) after (A) the expiration of the Escrow Period, with respect to the remainder of the Escrow Fund after deducting the amounts held in the Escrow Fund pursuant to the preceding sentence. 


8.5 Claims.

(a) Subject to Section 8.6, on or before the last day of the Escrow Period, Purchaser may deliver to the Escrow Agent, and following the Escrow Period and on or before the last day of the Fundamental Claims Period, may deliver to Seller a certificate signed by any officer of Purchaser (a "Claims Certificate"):

(i) stating that an Indemnified Person has incurred, paid reserved or reasonably anticipates that it may incur, pay or reserve, Indemnifiable Damages;

(ii) stating the amount of such Indemnifiable Damages (which, in the case of Indemnifiable Damages not yet incurred, paid or reserved, may be the maximum amount reasonably anticipated by Purchaser to be incurred, paid or reserved by a third party); and

(iii) specifying in reasonable detail (based upon the information then possessed by Purchaser) the individual items of such Indemnifiable Damages included in the amount so stated and the nature of the claim to which such Indemnifiable Damages are related.

No delay in providing such Claims Certificate within the Claims Period shall affect Purchaser's rights hereunder, except to the extent that Seller is materially prejudiced thereby.

(b) At the time of delivery of any Claim Certificate to the Escrow Agent, a duplicate copy of such Claims Certificate shall be delivered to Seller by or behalf of Purchaser.  Subject to the following sentence, the Escrow Agent shall make no payment to Purchaser unless the Escrow Agent shall have received written authorization from both Seller and Purchaser to make such payment.  If Seller shall have objected to any claim or claims made in the Claims Certificate in a written statement delivered to the Escrow Agent (an "Objection Notice"), or the Escrow Agent has not received written authorizations from both Seller and Purchaser within thirty (30) calendar days from receipt of the Claims Certificate, Seller and Purchaser shall attempt in good faith for thirty (30) days to resolve such objection.  If Seller and Purchaser shall so agree, a memorandum setting forth such agreement shall be prepared and signed by Seller and Purchaser and delivered to the Escrow Agent. The Escrow Agent shall be entitled to conclusively rely on any such memorandum and the Escrow Agent shall distribute consideration from the Escrow Fund in accordance with the terms of such memorandum.

(c) If no such agreement can be reached during the 30-day period for good faith negotiation referenced in Section 8.5(b), but in any event upon the expiration of such 30-day period, either Purchaser or Seller may bring suit in the state or federal courts located in the Borough of Manhattan, City of New York, New York to resolve the matter. The decision of the trial court as to the validity and amount of any claim in such Claims Certificate shall be non-appealable, binding and conclusive upon the parties hereto and the Escrow Agent shall be entitled to act in accordance with such decision and the Escrow Agent shall distribute cash from the Escrow Fund in accordance therewith. Judgment upon any award rendered by the trial court may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.   


8.6 Third-Party Claims

(a) If any Indemnified Party receives notice of the assertion or commencement of any Action made or brought by any Person who is not a party to this Agreement or an Affiliate of a party to this Agreement or a Representative of the foregoing (a "Third-Party Claim") against such Indemnified Party with respect to which Seller is obligated to provide indemnification under this Agreement, the Indemnified Party shall give Seller prompt written notice thereof.  The failure to give such prompt written notice shall not, however, relieve Seller of its indemnification obligations, except and only to the extent that Seller forfeits rights or defenses by reason of such failure.  Such notice by the Indemnified Party shall describe the Third-Party Claim in reasonable detail, shall include copies of all material written evidence thereof and shall indicate the estimated amount, if reasonably practicable, of the Indemnifiable Claim that has been or may be sustained by the Indemnified Party.

(b) Seller shall have the right to participate in, or by giving written notice to the Indemnified Party within fourteen (14) days of receipt of notice of a Third-Party Claim, to assume the defense of any Third-Party Claim at Seller's expense and by Seller's own counsel, and the Indemnified Party shall cooperate in good faith in such defense; provided, however, that Seller agrees to indemnify Purchaser in full in respect of any such Third-Party Claim, subject to the limitations of this ARTICLE VIII; provided, further, that Purchaser shall have the sole right to control the defense of any Third-Party Claim if Purchaser reasonable believes that Seller does not have sufficient resources to carry out the defensive of such Third Party Claim.  In the event that Seller assumes the defense of any Third-Party Claim, subject to the remainder of Section 8.6, it shall have the right to take such action as it deems necessary to avoid, dispute, defend, appeal or make counterclaims pertaining to any such Third-Party Claim in the name and on behalf of the Indemnified Party.

(c) The Indemnified Party shall have the right, at its own cost and expense, to participate in the defense of any Third-Party Claim with counsel selected by it subject to Seller's right to control the defense thereof.  If Seller elects not to compromise or defend such Third-Party Claim or fails to promptly notify the Indemnified Party in writing of its election to defend as provided in this Agreement, the Indemnified Party may, subject to the remainder of Section 8.6, pay, compromise, defend such Third-Party Claim and seek indemnification for any and all Indemnifiable Claims based upon, arising from or relating to such Third-Party Claim.  Seller and Indemnified Parties 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, without expense (other than reimbursement of actual out-of-pocket expenses) to the defending party, management employees of the non-defending party as may be reasonably necessary for the preparation of the defense of such Third-Party Claim. 

(d) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, Seller shall not enter into settlement of any Third-Party Claim without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed), except as provided in this Section 8.6.  If the Indemnified Party has assumed the defense pursuant to Section 8.6, it shall be entitled to settle the Third-Party Claim at its discretion, but such settlement shall not be determinative of the amount of Indemnifiable Damages if effected without the written consent of Seller (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed).  Any costs and expenses incurred by Purchaser in connection with the defense, settlement or resolution (including reasonable attorneys' fees, other professionals' and experts' fees and court or arbitration costs) of any Third-Party Claim shall be included in the Indemnifiable Damages for which Purchaser shall be entitled to seek indemnification pursuant to a claim made hereunder.


8.7 Tax Treatment of Indemnification Payments.  All indemnification payments made under this Agreement shall be treated by the parties as an adjustment to the Purchase Price for Tax purposes, unless otherwise required by Legal Requirements.

8.8 Survival of Representations; Covenants.  The representations and warranties of Seller contained in this Agreement, and in the other agreements and certificates contemplated hereby shall survive the Closing and remain in full force and effect, regardless of any investigation or disclosure made by or on behalf of any of the parties hereto, until the date that is 18 months following the Closing Date; provided, that the Fundamental Representations and IP Matters will remain operative and in full force and effect, regardless of any investigation or disclosure made by or on behalf of or knowledge obtained by any of the parties hereto, until the date that is the later of (i) the date that is 3 years following the Closing Date and (ii) expiration of the applicable statute of limitations for claims against Seller that seek recovery of Indemnifiable Damages to the extent resulting from an inaccuracy or breach of such Fundamental Representations or IP Matters.  The representations and warranties of Purchaser contained in this Agreement, and in the other agreements and certificates contemplated hereby, shall survive the Closing and remain in full force and effect, regardless of any investigation or disclosure made by or on behalf of any of the parties hereto, until the date that is 18 months following the Closing Date.  All covenants or agreements of a party hereto set forth in this Agreement that contemplated performance following the Closing shall survive the consummation of the Transactions in accordance with their respective terms.

9.2 Interpretation; Rules of Construction.  When a reference is made in this Agreement to Articles, Sections or Exhibits, such reference shall be to an Article or Section of, or an Exhibit to this Agreement unless otherwise indicated.  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.  The words "include," "includes" and "including" when used herein shall be deemed in each case to be followed by the words "without limitation."  The phrases "provided to," "furnished to," and phrases of similar import when used herein, unless the context otherwise requires, shall mean that a true, correct and complete paper copy of the information or material referred to has been provided to the party to whom such information or material is to be provided.  Unless the context of this Agreement otherwise requires: (a) words of any gender include each other gender; (b) words using the singular or plural number also include the plural or singular number, respectively, and (c) the terms "hereof," "herein," "hereunder" and derivative or similar words refer to this entire Agreement.  Disclosures made in any Section of the Seller Disclosure Letter shall qualify and be deemed to have been disclosed with respect to any other provision of this Agreement only to the extent it is readily apparent from the actual text of such disclosure.  Whenever the phrase "made available" or other similar term is used herein, it shall mean the document made available for viewing in the "Tamir Biotech" electronic data room hosted by Datasite, as that site existed as of 24 hours prior to the Agreement Date.


9.3 Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, all of which shall be considered one and the same instrument, and shall become effective when one or more counterparts have been signed by each of the parties hereto and delivered to the other party hereto, it being understood that all parties hereto need not sign the same counterpart.

9.4 Entire Agreement; Parties in Interest.  This Agreement and the documents and instruments and other agreements specifically referred to herein or delivered pursuant hereto, including all the exhibits attached hereto and the schedules hereto including Seller Disclosure Letter, (a) constitute the entire agreement among the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior agreements and understandings, both written and oral, among the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof, except for the Confidentiality Agreement which shall continue in full force and effect, and shall survive any termination of this Agreement in accordance with its terms, (b) are not intended to confer, and shall not be construed as conferring, upon any Person other than the parties hereto any rights or remedies hereunder, except that ARTICLE VIII is intended to benefit Indemnified Persons and (c) shall not be assigned by operation of law or otherwise except as specifically provided herein.

9.5 Assignment.  Neither this Agreement nor any of the rights, interests or obligations under this Agreement may be assigned or delegated, 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 party hereto, and any such assignment without such prior written consent shall be null and void.  Subject to the preceding sentence, this Agreement shall be binding upon, inure to the benefit of, and be enforceable by, the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns.  Notwithstanding the foregoing or anything herein to the contrary, it is acknowledged that Seller shall be liquidated following the Closing Date pursuant to the Plan of Liquidation and it is acknowledged and agreed that in connection therewith, Seller's rights and obligations under this Agreement, including with respect to any consideration to be delivered after such liquidation and any indemnification obligations, may be assigned to the Securityholders or any limited liability company or limited partnership into which Seller is converted (or new limited liability company or limited partnership it is merged into to achieve substantially the same effect as a conversion of Seller) (such entity, a "Seller Successor Entity") in accordance with the Plan of Liquidation; provided, that in the event of such assignment to Securityholders, a Securityholders' agent shall be appointed pursuant to a customary securityholder agent relationship to act on behalf of the Securityholders in respect of the indemnification provisions in ARTICLE VIII.  In the event that the Purchaser Stock Consideration is transferred, contributed or assigned to a Seller Successor Entity following the Plan of Liquidation, such Seller Successor Entity shall, as a condition to such transfer, agree to be bound by any and all obligations of Seller under this Agreement.  No later than 10 Business Days prior to any distributions to Securityholders pursuant the Plan of Liquidation, Seller (or a Seller Successor Entity, if applicable) shall deliver to Purchaser a spreadsheet setting forth each Securityholder's Pro Rata Share with reasonable supporting calculations thereto, which spreadsheet shall be certified by an officer of Purchaser and which shall be subject to Purchaser's reasonable review and comment in respect of such calculations.

9.6 Severability.  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 all reasonable best 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.

9.7 Remedies 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.  Each of the parties hereto acknowledges and agrees that the other party would be damaged irreparably in the event any of the provisions of this Agreement is not performed in accordance with its specific terms or is otherwise breached, and that although monetary damages may be available for such breach, monetary damages would be an inadequate remedy therefor.  Accordingly, each party hereto agrees that the other party shall be entitled to an injunction or injunctions, specific performance and other equitable relief to prevent breaches or threatened breaches of the provisions of this Agreement and to enforce specifically this Agreement and the terms and provisions hereof in any action instituted in any court in the United States or in any state having jurisdiction over the parties and the matter in addition to any other remedy to which they may be entitled pursuant hereto.  Each of the parties agrees that it will not oppose the granting of an injunction, specific performance and other equitable relief when expressly available pursuant to the terms of this Agreement on the basis that the other party has an adequate remedy at law or an award of specific performance is not an appropriate remedy for any reason at law or equity. 


9.8 Governing Law; Resolution of Disputes.  This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware without reference to such state's principles of conflicts of law.  Any proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the Transactions may be brought in the state or federal courts located in the Borough of Manhattan, City of New York, New York and each of the parties irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of each such court in any such Action, waives any objection it may now or hereafter have to venue or to convenience of forum, agrees that all claims in respect of the proceeding shall be heard and determined only in any such court and agrees not to bring any proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any Transactions in any other court.

9.9 No Joint Venture.  Nothing contained in this Agreement will be deemed or construed as creating a joint venture or partnership between any of the parties hereto.  No party is by virtue of this Agreement authorized as an agent, employee or legal Representative of any other party.  No party will have the power to control the activities and operations of any other, and their status is, and at all times will continue to be, that of independent contractors with respect to each other.  Except as provided herein, no party will have any power or authority to bind or commit any other party.  No party will hold itself out as having any authority or relationship in contravention of this Section 9.9.

9.10 Amendment; Extension; Waiver. Subject to Legal Requirement, the parties hereto may amend this Agreement by authorized action at any time pursuant to an instrument in writing signed on behalf of each of the parties hereto.  To the extent permitted by Legal Requirement, Purchaser and Seller may cause this Agreement to be amended at any time after the Closing by execution of an instrument in writing signed on behalf of Purchaser and Seller.  At any time, Seller or Purchaser may, to the extent legally allowed, (a) extend the time for the performance of any of the obligations or other acts of the other party hereto, (b) waive any inaccuracies in the representations and warranties made to such party contained herein or in any document delivered pursuant hereto and (c) waive compliance with any of the agreements or conditions for the benefit of such party contained herein.  Any agreement on the part of a party hereto to any such extension or waiver shall be valid only if set forth in an instrument in writing signed on behalf of such party.  Without limiting the generality or effect of the preceding sentence, no delay in exercising any right under this Agreement shall constitute a waiver of such right, and no waiver of any breach or default shall be deemed a waiver of any other breach or default of the same or any other provision in this Agreement.

9.11 Compliance with Bulk Sales Laws.  Each of Purchaser and Seller hereby waives compliance by the parties with the "bulk sales," "bulk transfers" or similar laws and all other similar Legal Requirements in all applicable jurisdictions in respect of the Transactions.


9.12 WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL.  EACH OF THE PARTIES HERETO HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ALL RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION, PROCEEDING OR COUNTERCLAIM (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE) ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE ACTIONS OF ANY PARTY HERETO IN THE NEGOTIATION, ADMINISTRATION, PERFORMANCE OR ENFORCEMENT HEREOF.

SECTION 2.

REGISTRATION

(a) On or prior to the Filing Deadline, the Company shall prepare and file with the Commission a Registration Statement covering the resale of all of the Registrable Securities that are not then registered on an existing and effective Registration Statement for an offering to be made on a continuous basis pursuant to Rule 415 (the "Initial Registration Statement"). The Initial Registration Statement shall be on Form S-3 (except that if the Company is then ineligible to register for resale the Registrable Securities on Form S-3, in which case such registration shall be on such other form available to register for resale the Registrable Securities as a secondary offering) subject to the provisions of Section 2(e) and shall contain (except if otherwise required pursuant to written comments received from the Commission upon a review of such Registration Statement) a "Plan of Distribution" section substantially in the form attached hereto as Annex A (which may be modified to respond to comments, if any, provided by the Commission).


(i) Notwithstanding the registration obligations set forth in this Section 2, in the event the Commission informs the Company that all of the Registrable Securities cannot, as a result of the application of Rule 415, be registered for resale as a secondary offering on a single registration statement or that any Holder must be named as an underwriter in the Registration Statement, the Company agrees to promptly (x) inform each of the Holders thereof and use its reasonable best efforts to file amendments to the Initial Registration Statement as required by the Commission and/or (y) withdraw the Initial Registration Statement and file a new registration statement (a "New Registration Statement"), in either case covering the maximum number of Registrable Securities permitted to be registered by the Commission, on Form S-3 or such other form available to register for resale the Registrable Securities as a secondary offering.  Each Seller shall have the right to comment or have their counsel comment on any written submission made to the staff of Commission (the "Staff") with respect to any disclosure specifically relating to such Seller. No such written submission shall be made to the Staff containing disclosure specifically relating to such Seller to which such Seller's counsel reasonably objects.

(ii) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement and subject to the payment of liquidated damages in Section 2(c), if any SEC Guidance sets forth a limitation of the number of Registrable Securities permitted to be registered on a particular Registration Statement as a secondary offering without naming any Holder as an underwriter (and notwithstanding that the Company used reasonable best efforts to advocate with the Commission for the registration of all or a greater number of Registrable Securities), unless otherwise directed in writing by a Holder as to its Registrable Securities, the Registrable Securities to be registered on such Registration Statement will be reduced (applied, in the case that some Shares may be registered, to the Holders on a pro rata basis based on the total number of unregistered Shares held by such Holders), subject to a determination by the Commission that certain Holders must be reduced first based on the number of Registrable Securities held by such Holders. Any reduction of Registrable Securities pursuant to this Section 2(a)(ii) shall occur only after all securities that are not Registrable Securities, if any, are first removed from such Registration Statement. In the event the Company amends the Initial Registration Statement or files a New Registration Statement, as the case may be, under clauses (x) or (y) above, the Company will use its reasonable best efforts to file with the Commission, as promptly as allowed by Commission or SEC Guidance provided to the Company or to registrants of securities in general, one or more registration statements on Form S-3 or such other form available to register for resale those Registrable Securities that were not registered for resale on the Initial Registration Statement, as amended, or the New Registration Statement (the "Remainder Registration Statements").  No Holder shall be named as an "underwriter" in any Registration Statement without such Holder's prior written consent.

(b) The Company shall use its reasonable best efforts to cause each Registration Statement to be declared effective by the Commission as soon as practicable and, with respect to the Initial Registration Statement or the New Registration Statement, as applicable, no later than the Effectiveness Deadline (including, with respect to the Initial Registration Statement or the New Registration Statement, as applicable, filing with the Commission a request for acceleration of effectiveness in accordance with Rule 461 promulgated under the Securities Act within five (5) Business Days after the date that the Company is notified (orally or in writing, whichever is earlier) by the Commission that such Registration Statement will not be "reviewed," or not be subject to further review and the effectiveness of such Registration Statement may be accelerated), and, subject to Section 2(e), shall use its reasonable best efforts to keep each Registration Statement continuously effective under the Securities Act for so long as the securities registered for resale thereunder retain their character as "Registrable Securities" (the "Effectiveness Period"). The Company shall promptly notify the Holders via facsimile or electronic mail of the effectiveness of a Registration Statement or any post-effective amendment thereto on or before the first Trading Day after the date that the Company telephonically confirms effectiveness with the Commission. The Company shall, by 9:30 a.m. New York time on the first Trading Day after the Effective Date, file a final Prospectus with the Commission, as required by Rule 424(b).


(c) If: (i) the Initial Registration Statement is not filed with the Commission on or prior to the Filing Deadline, (ii) the Initial Registration Statement or the New Registration Statement, as applicable, is not declared effective by the Commission (or otherwise does not become effective) for any reason on or prior to the Effectiveness Deadline or (iii) after its Effective Date and except for the reasons as set forth in Section 3(j), (A) such Registration Statement ceases for any reason (including, without limitation, by reason of a stop order or the Company's failure to update the Registration Statement), to remain continuously effective as to all Registrable Securities included in such Registration Statement or (B) the Holders are not permitted to utilize the Prospectus therein to resell such Registrable Securities for any reason (other than due to a change in the "Plan of Distribution" or the inaccuracy of any information regarding the Holders), in each case, for more than an aggregate of 30 consecutive days or 45 calendar days (which need not be consecutive days) during any 12-month period (other than as a result of a breach of this Agreement by a Holder) (any such failure or breach in clauses (i) through (iii) above being referred to as an "Event," and, for purposes of clauses (i) or (ii), the date on which such Event occurs, or for purposes of clause (iii), the date on which such 30 consecutive day period or 45 calendar day period, as applicable, is exceeded, being referred to as an "Event Date"), then in addition to any other rights the Holders may have hereunder or under applicable law: (x) within five (5) Business Days after an Event Date, the Company shall pay to each Holder an amount in cash, as liquidated damages and not as a penalty, equal to 1.0% of the aggregate purchase price paid (in dollars calculated as of Closing) to such Holder pursuant to the Purchase Agreement with respect to any Registrable Securities held by such Holder on such Event Date; and (y) on each 30-day anniversary (or pro rata portion thereof) following any Event Date (including, for the avoidance of doubt, a failure in clause (i), in which case each 30-day anniversary shall be measured commencing on the 31st day following such Event Date) until the earlier of (1) the applicable Event is cured or (2) the Registrable Securities are eligible for resale pursuant to Rule 144 without manner of sale or volume restrictions, the Company shall pay to each Holder an amount in cash, as liquidated damages and not as a penalty, equal to 1.0% of the aggregate purchase price paid (in dollars calculated as of Closing) to such Holder pursuant to the Purchase Agreement with respect to any unregistered Registrable Securities then held by such Holder. The amounts payable pursuant to the foregoing clauses (x) and (y) are referred to collectively as "Liquidated Damages." The parties agree that (1) notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, no Liquidated Damages shall be payable with respect to any period after the expiration of the Effectiveness Period and in no event shall the aggregate amount of Liquidated Damages payable to a Holder exceed, in the aggregate, 5.0% of the aggregate purchase price paid (in dollars calculated as of Closing) to such Holder pursuant to the Purchase Agreement and (2) in no event shall the Company be liable in any 30-day period for Liquidated Damages under this Agreement in excess of 1.0% of the aggregate purchase price paid (in dollars calculated as of Closing) to the Holders pursuant to the Purchase Agreement. If the Company fails to pay any Liquidated Damages pursuant to this Section 2(c) in full within 30 Business Days after the date payable, the Company will pay interest thereon at a rate of 1.0% per month (or such lesser maximum amount that is permitted to be paid by applicable law) to the Holder, accruing daily from the date such Liquidated Damages are due until such amounts, plus all such interest thereon, are paid in full. Unless otherwise specified in this Section 2(c), the Liquidated Damages pursuant to the terms hereof shall apply on a daily pro-rata basis for any portion of a month prior to the cure of an Event, except in the case of the first Event Date.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing shall preclude any Holder from pursuing or obtaining any available remedies at law, specific performance or other equitable relief with respect to this Section 2(c) in accordance with applicable law.  The Company shall not be liable for Liquidated Damages under this Agreement as to any Registrable Securities which are not permitted by the Commission to be included in a Registration Statement due solely to Rule 415 under the Securities Act from the time that it is determined that such Registrable Securities are not permitted to be registered until such time as the provisions of this Agreement as to the Remainder Registration Statements required to be filed hereunder are triggered, in which case the provisions of this Section 2(c) shall once again apply, if applicable. In such case, the Liquidated Damages shall be calculated to only apply to the percentage of Registrable Securities which are permitted in accordance with SEC Guidance to be included in such Registration Statement. The Effectiveness Deadline for a Registration Statement shall be extended without default or Liquidated Damages hereunder in the event that the Company's failure to obtain the effectiveness of the Registration Statement on a timely basis results from the failure of a Holder to timely provide the Company with information requested by the Company and necessary to complete the Registration Statement in accordance with the requirements of the Securities Act (in which the Effectiveness Deadline would be extended with respect to Registrable Securities held by such Holder).


(d) Each Holder agrees to furnish to the Company a completed selling stockholder questionnaire. At least five (5) Trading Days prior to the first anticipated filing date of a Registration Statement for any registration under this Agreement, the Company will notify each Holder of the information the Company requires from that Holder other than the information contained in the selling stockholder questionnaire, if any, which shall be completed and delivered to the Company promptly upon request and, in any event, within two (2) Trading Days prior to the applicable anticipated filing date. Each Holder further agrees that it shall not be entitled to be named as a selling security holder in the Registration Statement or use the Prospectus for offers and resales of Registrable Securities at any time, unless such Holder has returned to the Company a completed and signed selling stockholder questionnaire and a response to any reasonable requests for further information as described in the previous sentence. If a Holder of Registrable Securities returns a Selling Stockholder Questionnaire or a request for further information, in either case, after its respective deadline, the Company shall use its reasonable best efforts to take such actions as are required to name such Holder as a selling security holder in the Registration Statement or any pre-effective or post-effective amendment thereto and to include (to the extent not theretofore included) in the Registration Statement the Registrable Securities identified in such late selling stockholder questionnaire or request for further information. Each Holder acknowledges and agrees that the information in the selling stockholder questionnaire or request for further information as described in this Section 2(d) will be used by the Company in the preparation of the Registration Statement and hereby consents to the inclusion of such information in the Registration Statement.


(e) In the event that Form S-3 is not available for the registration of the resale of Registrable Securities hereunder, the Company shall (i) register the resale of the Registrable Securities on Form S-1 and (ii) undertake to register the Registrable Securities on Form S-3 promptly after such form is available, provided that the Company shall maintain the effectiveness of the Registration Statement then in effect until such time as a Registration Statement on Form S-3 covering the Registrable Securities has been declared effective by the Commission.

SECTION 3.

REGISTRATION PROCEDURES

In connection with the Company's registration obligations hereunder, the Company shall:

(a) Not less than five (5) Trading Days prior to the filing of each Registration Statement and not less than three (3) Trading Days prior to the filing of any related Prospectus or any amendment or supplement thereto (except for Annual Reports on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K, and any similar or successor reports), (i) furnish to each Holder copies of such Registration Statement, Prospectus or amendment or supplement thereto, substantially in the form as proposed to be filed, which documents will be subject to the review of such Holder (it being acknowledged and agreed that if a Holder does not object to or comment on the aforementioned documents within such five (5) Trading Day or three (3) Trading Day period, as the case may be, then the Holder shall be deemed to have consented to and approved the use of such documents) and (ii) use reasonable best efforts to cause its officers and directors, counsel and independent registered public accountants to respond to such inquiries as shall be necessary, in the reasonable opinion of respective counsel to each Holder, to conduct such review. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company shall not be required to furnish to the Holders any prospectus supplement being prepare and filed solely to name new or additional selling securityholders unless such Holder is named in such prospectus supplement.  The Company shall not file any Registration Statement or Prospectus or any amendment or supplement thereto in a form to which a Holder reasonably objects in good faith, provided that the Company is notified of such objection in writing within the five (5) Trading Day or three (3) Trading Day period described above, as applicable, and provided further, that no such delay in filing shall result in any Liquidated Damages under Section 2(c).

(c) Notify the Holders (which notice shall, pursuant to clauses (iii) through (vi) hereof, be accompanied by an instruction to suspend the use of the Prospectus until the requisite changes have been made) as promptly as reasonably possible via facsimile or electronic mail (and, in the case of (i)(A) below, not less than three (3) Trading Days prior to such filing) and confirm such notice in writing no later than one Trading Day following the day: (i)(A) when a Prospectus or any Prospectus supplement (but only to the extent notice is required under Section 3(a) above) or post-effective amendment to any Registration Statement is proposed to be filed; (B) when the Commission notifies the Company whether there will be a "review" of any Registration Statement and whenever the Commission comments in writing on any Registration Statement (in which case the Company shall provide true and complete copies thereof and all written responses thereto to each of the Holders that pertain to such Holder as a Selling Stockholder or to the Plan of Distribution, but not information that the Company believes would constitute material and non-public information); and (C) with respect to each Registration Statement or any post-effective amendment thereto, when the same has been declared effective; (ii) of any request by the Commission or any other Federal or state governmental authority for amendments or supplements to a Registration Statement or Prospectus or for additional information that pertains to the Holders as "Selling Stockholders" or the "Plan of Distribution"; (iii) of the issuance by the Commission of any stop order suspending the effectiveness of a Registration Statement covering any or all of the Registrable Securities or the initiation of any Proceedings for that purpose; (iv) of the receipt by the Company of any notification with respect to the suspension of the qualification or exemption from qualification of any of the Registrable Securities for sale in any jurisdiction, or the initiation or threatening of any Proceeding for such purpose; (v) of the occurrence of any event or passage of time that makes the financial statements included or incorporated by reference in a Registration Statement ineligible for inclusion or incorporation by reference therein or any statement made in such Registration Statement or Prospectus or any document incorporated or deemed to be incorporated therein by reference untrue in any material respect or that requires any revisions to such Registration Statement, Prospectus or other documents so that, in the case of such Registration Statement or the Prospectus, as the case may be, it will not contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state any material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading; and (vi) of the occurrence or existence of, or in anticipation of, any acquisition, financing activity, regulatory developments or other material transaction involving the Company, or any other event or condition of similar significance to the Company, for which allowing the continued availability of a Registration Statement or Prospectus would be, in the good faith determination of the Board of Directors, materially detrimental to the Company; provided, that any and all of such information shall remain confidential to each Holder until such information otherwise becomes public, unless disclosure by a Holder is required by law; provided, further, that notwithstanding each Holder's agreement to keep such information confidential, each such Holder makes no acknowledgement that any such information is material, non-public information.


(d) Use its reasonable best efforts to avoid the issuance of, or, if issued, obtain the withdrawal of (i) any order suspending the effectiveness of a Registration Statement, or (ii) any suspension of the qualification (or exemption from qualification) of any of the Registrable Securities for sale in any jurisdiction, at the earliest practicable moment.

(e) Furnish to the Holders, without charge, at least one conformed copy of each Registration Statement and each amendment thereto and all exhibits to the extent reasonably requested by such Person (including those previously furnished or incorporated by reference) promptly after the filing of such documents with the Commission; provided, that the Company shall have no obligation to provide any document pursuant to this clause that is available on the Commission's EDGAR system.

(f) Promptly deliver to the Holders, without charge, as many copies of each Prospectus or Prospectuses (including each form of prospectus) and each amendment or supplement thereto as such Person may reasonably request.  Subject to Section 7(c) hereof, the Company hereby consents to the use of such Prospectus and each amendment or supplement thereto by each of the selling Holders in connection with the offering and sale of the Registrable Securities covered by such Prospectus and any amendment or supplement thereto.


(g) Prior to the resale of Registrable Securities by a Holder, use its reasonable best efforts to register or qualify or cooperate with the selling Holder in connection with the registration or qualification (or exemption from such registration or qualification) of such Registrable Securities for offer and sale under the securities or Blue Sky laws of such jurisdictions within the United States as such Holder reasonably requests in writing, to keep each such registration or qualification (or exemption therefrom) effective during the Effectiveness Period and to do any and all other acts or things necessary or advisable to enable the disposition in such jurisdictions of the Registrable Securities covered by the Registration Statements; provided, that the Company shall not be required to qualify generally to do business in any jurisdiction where it is not then so qualified or subject the Company to any material tax in any such jurisdiction where it is not then so subject.

(h) Cooperate with the Holders to facilitate the timely preparation and delivery of certificates or book-entry statements representing Registrable Securities to be delivered to a transferee pursuant to the Registration Statements, which certificates or book-entry statements shall be free of all restrictive legends, and to enable such Registrable Securities to be in such denominations and registered in such names as any such Holders may request.

(i) Upon the occurrence of any event contemplated by Section 3(c)(v), as promptly as reasonably possible, prepare a supplement or amendment, including a post-effective amendment, to the affected Registration Statements or a supplement to the related Prospectus or any document incorporated or deemed to be incorporated therein by reference, and file any other required document so that, as thereafter delivered, no Registration Statement nor any Prospectus will contain an untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading. If the Company notifies the Holders in accordance with clauses (ii) through (vi) of Section 3(c) above to suspend the use of any Prospectus until the requisite changes to such Prospectus have been made, then the Holders shall suspend use of such Prospectus. The Company will use its reasonable best efforts to ensure that the use of the Prospectus may be resumed as promptly as is practicable. The Company shall be entitled to exercise its right under this Section 3(i) to suspend the availability of a Registration Statement and Prospectus for a period not to exceed 60 calendar days (which need not be consecutive days) in any 12-month period without incurring liability for Liquidated Damages otherwise required pursuant to Section 2(c).

(j) The Company may require each selling Holder to furnish to the Company a certified statement as to (i) the number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by such Holder and any Affiliate thereof, (ii) any Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. ("FINRA") affiliations, (iii) any natural persons who have the power to vote or dispose of the common stock and (iv) any other information with respect to the Holder as may be requested by the Commission, FINRA or any state securities commission. During any periods that the Company is unable to meet its obligations hereunder with respect to the registration of Registrable Securities because any Holder fails to furnish such information within three (3) Trading Days of the Company's request, any Liquidated Damages that are accruing at such time as to such Holder only shall be tolled and any Event that may otherwise occur solely because of such delay shall be suspended as to such Holder only, until such information is delivered to the Company; provided, however, if the failure of the Holder to furnish the required information results the occurrence of an Event under Section 2(c), any Liquidated Damages that are accruing at such time shall be tolled and any such Event that occurs as a result thereof shall be suspended until such time as the Holder furnishes such information.


(k) The Company shall cooperate with any registered broker through which a Holder proposes to resell its Registrable Securities in effecting a filing with FINRA pursuant to FINRA Rule 5110 as reasonably requested by any such Holder, and the Company shall pay the filing fee required for the first such filing within five (5) Business Days of the request therefor.

(l) Cause all such Registrable Securities to be listed on the Trading Market on which similar securities issued by the Company are then listed.

SECTION 4.

HOLDER'S OBLIGATIONS

(b) Indemnification by Holder.  Each Holder shall, notwithstanding any termination of this Agreement, severally and not jointly, indemnify and hold harmless the Company, its directors, officers, agents and employees, each Person who controls the Company (within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act and Section 20 of the Exchange Act), and the directors, officers, agents, partners, members, stockholders or employees of such controlling Persons, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, from and against all Losses, as incurred, arising solely out of or based solely upon any untrue statement of a material fact contained in any Registration Statement, any Prospectus, or any form of prospectus, or in any amendment or supplement thereto, or arising solely out of or based solely upon any omission of a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein (in the case of any Prospectus, or any form of prospectus or supplement thereto, in light of the circumstances under which they were made) not misleading to the extent, but only to the extent that, (1) such untrue statements or omissions are based solely upon information regarding such Holder furnished in writing to the Company by such Holder expressly for use therein and such untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission had not been corrected in such Prospectus or in any amendment or supplement thereto prior to, or concurrently with, the sale of Registrable Securities to the person asserting the applicable claim or (2) in the case of an occurrence of an event of the type specified in Section 3(c)(ii)-(vi), to the extent, but only to the extent, related to the use by such Holder of an outdated or defective Prospectus after the Company has validly notified such Holder in writing (in accordance with Section 7(c) below) that the Prospectus is outdated or defective and prior to the receipt by such Holder of an Advice or an amended or supplemented Prospectus, but only if and to the extent that following the receipt of the Advice or the amended or supplemented Prospectus the misstatement or omission giving rise to such Loss would have been corrected. In no event shall the liability of any selling Holder hereunder (together with any liability under Section 6(d)) be greater in amount than the dollar amount of the net proceeds received by such Holder upon the sale of the Registrable Securities giving rise to such indemnification obligation.

(c) Conduct of Indemnification Proceedings.  If any Proceeding shall be brought or asserted against any Person entitled to indemnity hereunder (an "Indemnified Party"), such Indemnified Party shall promptly notify the Person from whom indemnity is sought (the "Indemnifying Party") in writing, and the Indemnifying Party shall have the right to assume the defense thereof, including the employment of counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Party and the payment of all fees and expenses incurred in connection with defense thereof; provided, that the failure of any Indemnified Party to give such notice shall not relieve the Indemnifying Party of its obligations or liabilities pursuant to this Agreement, except (and only) to the extent that it shall be finally determined by a court of competent jurisdiction (which determination is not subject to appeal or further review) that such failure shall have proximately and materially adversely prejudiced the Indemnifying Party.

An Indemnified Party shall have the right to employ separate counsel in any such Proceeding and to participate in the defense thereof, but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be at the expense of such Indemnified Party or Parties unless:  (1) the Indemnifying Party has agreed in writing to pay such fees and expenses; (2) the Indemnifying Party shall have failed promptly to assume the defense of such Proceeding and to employ counsel reasonably satisfactory to such Indemnified Party in any such Proceeding or the Indemnifying Party does not, upon assuming the defense of such Proceeding, conduct the defense of such claim actively and diligently; (3) the named parties to any such Proceeding (including any impleaded parties) include both such Indemnified Party and the Indemnifying Party, and such Indemnified Party shall have been advised by counsel that a conflict of interest is likely to exist if the same counsel were to represent such Indemnified Party and the Indemnifying Party; (4) the claim is based upon any Proceeding, indictment, allegation or investigation of a criminal nature; or (5) the claim seeks an injunction or non-monetary or equitable relief against the Indemnified Party, other than any such claim that is incidental to the primary claim or claims and not material (in the case of clauses (2)-(5), if such Indemnified Party notifies the Indemnifying Party in writing that it elects to employ separate counsel at the expense of the Indemnifying Party, the Indemnifying Party shall not have the right to assume the defense thereof and such counsel shall be at the expense of the Indemnifying Party); provided, that the Indemnifying Party shall not be liable for the fees and expenses of more than one separate firm of attorneys at any time for all Indemnified Parties pursuant to this Section 6(c) except in the case of clause (3) above.  The Indemnifying Party shall not be liable for any settlement of any such Proceeding effected without its written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned.  No Indemnifying Party shall, without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party, effect any settlement of any pending Proceeding in respect of which any Indemnified Party is a party, unless such settlement includes an unconditional release of such Indemnified Party from all liability on claims that are the subject matter of such Proceeding and such settlement does not require any Indemnified Party to perform any covenant or refrain from engaging in any activity or include any non-monetary limitation on the actions of any Indemnified Party or any of its affiliates or any admission of fault, violation, culpability, malfeasance or nonfeasance by, or on behalf of, or liability on behalf of, any such Indemnified Party.


Subject to the terms of this Agreement, all fees and expenses of the Indemnified Party (including reasonable fees and expenses to the extent incurred in connection with investigating or preparing to defend such Proceeding in a manner not inconsistent with this Section 6) shall be paid to the Indemnified Party, as incurred, within ten (10) Trading Days of written notice thereof to the Indemnifying Party (regardless of whether it is ultimately determined that an Indemnified Party is not entitled to indemnification hereunder; provided, that the Indemnifying Party may require such Indemnified Party to undertake to reimburse all such fees and expenses to the extent there is a final, non-appealable judicial determination that such Indemnified Party is not entitled to indemnification hereunder).

(d) Contribution.  If a claim for indemnification under Section 6(a) or Section 6(b) is unavailable to an Indemnified Party (by reason of public policy or otherwise) or insufficient to hold an Indemnified Party harmless for any Losses, then each Indemnifying Party, in lieu of indemnifying such Indemnified Party, shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by such Indemnified Party as a result of such Losses, in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the Indemnifying Party and Indemnified Party in connection with the actions, statements or omissions that resulted in such Losses as well as any other relevant equitable considerations.  The relative fault of such Indemnifying Party and Indemnified Party shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether any action in question, including any untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or omission or alleged omission of a material fact, has been taken or made by, or relates to information supplied by, such Indemnifying Party or Indemnified Party, and the parties' relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such action, statement or omission.  The amount paid or payable by a party as a result of any Losses shall be deemed to include, subject to the limitations set forth in Section 6(c), any reasonable attorneys' or other reasonable fees or expenses incurred by such party in connection with any Proceeding to the extent such party would have been indemnified for such fees or expenses if the indemnification provided for in this Section 6 was available to such party in accordance with its terms.


The parties hereto agree that it would not be just and equitable if contribution pursuant to this Section 6(d) were determined by pro rata allocation or by any other method of allocation that does not take into account the equitable considerations referred to in the immediately preceding paragraph.  Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section 6(d), no Holder shall be required to contribute, in the aggregate, any amount in excess of the amount by which the proceeds actually received by such Holder from the sale of the Registrable Securities subject to the Proceeding exceeds the amount of any damages that such Holder has otherwise been required to pay by reason of such untrue or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission.  No person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Securities Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any Person who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation.

The indemnity and contribution agreements contained in this Section 6 are in addition to any liability that the Indemnifying Parties may have to the Indemnified Parties and are not in diminution or limitation of the indemnification provisions under the Purchase Agreement.

SECTION 7.

MISCELLANEOUS

(a) Piggy-Back Registrations.  If at any time during the Effectiveness Period, except as contemplated by Section 2(a) hereof, there is not an effective Registration Statement covering all of the Registrable Securities and the Company shall determine to prepare and file with the Commission a registration statement relating to an offering for its own account or the account of others under the Securities Act of any of its equity securities, other than on Form S-4 or Form S-8 (each as promulgated under the Securities Act) or their then equivalents relating to equity securities to be issued solely in connection with any acquisition of any entity or business or equity securities issuable in connection with the stock option or other employee benefit plans, and even if there is such an effective Registration Statement covering all of the Registrable Securities, in the event that such offering for its own account or the account of others is to be underwritten, then the Company shall deliver to each Holder a written notice of such determination and, if within 15 days after the date of the delivery of such notice, any such Holder shall so request in writing, the Company shall include in such registration statement all or any part of any Registrable Securities such Holder requests to be registered. The Company shall have the right to terminate or withdraw any registration initiated by it under this Section 7(a) prior to the effectiveness of such registration whether or not the Holders have elected to include securities in such registration.


(b) Rule 144 Compliance.  With a view to making available to the Holders the benefits of Rule 144 under the Securities Act and any other rule or regulation of the Commission that may at any time permit a Holder to sell securities of the Company to the public without registration, the Company shall:

(i) use commercially reasonable efforts to make and keep public information available, as those terms are understood and defined in Rule 144 under the Securities Act;

(ii) use commercially reasonable efforts to file with the Commission in a timely manner all reports and other documents required of the Company under the Exchange Act, at any time when the Company is subject to such reporting requirements; and

(iii) furnish to any Holder, promptly upon request, a written statement by the Company as to its compliance with the reporting requirements of Rule 144 under the Securities Act and of the Exchange Act, a copy of the most recent annual or quarterly report of the Company, and such other reports and documents so filed or furnished by the Company with the Commission as such Holder may reasonably request in connection with the sale of Registrable Securities without registration (in each case to the extent not readily publicly available).

(c) Discontinued Disposition.  The Holders agree by its acquisition of such Registrable Securities that, upon receipt of a notice from the Company of the occurrence of any event of the kind described in Section 3(c)(ii)-(vi), such Holder will forthwith discontinue disposition of such Registrable Securities under the Registration Statement until such Holder's receipt of the copies of the supplemented Prospectus and/or amended Registration Statement or until it is advised in writing (the "Advice") by the Company that the use of the applicable Prospectus may be resumed, and, in either case, has received copies of any additional or supplemental filings that are incorporated or deemed to be incorporated by reference in such Prospectus or Registration Statement. The Company will use its reasonable best efforts to ensure that the use of the Prospectus may be resumed as promptly as is practicable. The Company may provide appropriate stop orders to enforce the provisions of this paragraph.

(d) Compliance.  Subject to the Company's compliance with its obligations set forth in Section 3(b), the Holders covenant and agree that it will comply with the prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act as applicable to it (unless an exemption therefrom is available) in connection with sales of Registrable Securities pursuant to the Registration Statement.

(e) Furnishing of Information.  The Holders shall furnish in writing to the Company such information regarding itself, the Registrable Securities held by it and the intended method of disposition of the Registrable Securities held by it, as shall be reasonably requested by the Company to effect the registration of such Registrable Securities and shall execute such documents in connection with such registration as the Company may reasonably request.


(f) Termination of Rights.  For the avoidance of doubt, it is expressly agreed and understood that (i) in the event that there are no Registrable Securities outstanding as of a Filing Deadline, then the Company shall have no obligation to file, cause to be declared effective or to keep effective any Registration Statement hereunder (including any Registration Statement previously filed pursuant to this Agreement) and (ii) all rights granted to the Holders hereunder (including the rights set forth in Sections 7(a) and 7(b)), shall terminate in their entirety effective on the first date on which there shall cease to be any Registrable Securities outstanding.

(g)  Waivers and Amendments.  No provision of this Agreement may be waived, amended, modified or supplemented except in a written instrument signed by the Company and the Holders or Holders (as applicable) of no less than a majority of the then outstanding Registrable Securities or, if such amendment, modification or supplement shall affect a Holder in a manner disproportionate from other Holders then the signature of such Holder shall be required, provided that any party may give a waiver as to itself.  The Company shall provide prior written notice to the Holders of any proposed waiver, amendment, modification or supplement.  No waiver of any default with respect to any provision, condition or requirement of this Agreement shall be deemed to be a continuing waiver in the future or a waiver of any subsequent default or a waiver of any other provision, condition or requirement hereof, nor shall any delay or omission of either party to exercise any right hereunder in any manner impair the exercise of any such right.

(h) Governing Law; Submission to Jurisdiction.  All questions concerning the construction, validity, enforcement and interpretation of this Agreement shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the internal laws of the State of New York, without regard to the principles of conflicts of law thereof.  Each party agrees that all legal proceedings concerning the interpretations, enforcement and defense of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and any other Transaction Documents (whether brought against a party hereto or its respective affiliates, directors, officers, shareholders, employees or agents) shall be commenced exclusively in the state and federal courts sitting in the County of New York, in the State of New York. Each party hereby irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts sitting in the County of New York, in the State of New York, for the adjudication of any dispute hereunder or in connection herewith or with any transaction contemplated hereby or discussed herein (including with respect to the enforcement of any of the Transaction Documents), and hereby irrevocably waives, and agrees not to assert in any suit, action or proceeding, any claim that it is not personally subject to the jurisdiction of any such court, that such suit, action or proceeding is improper or is an inconvenient venue for such proceeding.  Each party hereby irrevocably waives personal service of process and consents to process being served in any such suit, action or proceeding by mailing a copy thereof via registered or certified mail or overnight delivery (with evidence of delivery) to such party at the address in effect for notices to it under this Agreement and agrees that such service shall constitute good and sufficient service of process and notice thereof.  Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to limit in any way any right to serve process in any other manner permitted by law.


(i) Remedies.  In the event of a breach by the Company or by the Holders of any of their obligations under this Agreement, such Holder or the Company, as the case may be, in addition to being entitled to exercise all rights granted by law and under this Agreement, including recovery of damages, will be entitled to specific performance of its rights under this Agreement.  The Company and the Holders agree that monetary damages would not provide adequate compensation for any losses incurred by reason of a breach by it of any of the provisions of this Agreement and hereby further agree that, in the event of any action for specific performance in respect of such breach, it shall waive the defense that a remedy at law would be adequate.  The remedies provided herein are cumulative and not exclusive of any remedies provided by law.

(j) Notices.  All notices, requests, consents and other communications hereunder shall be in writing, shall be sent by confirmed facsimile or electronic mail, or mailed by first-class registered or certified airmail, or nationally recognized overnight express courier, postage prepaid, and shall be deemed given when so sent in the case of facsimile or electronic mail transmission, or when so received in the case of mail or courier, and addressed as follows:

ANNEX A

PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION

The selling stockholders and any of their pledgees, donees, transferees, assignees or other successors-in-interest may, from time to time, sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of any or all of their shares of common stock or interests in shares of common stock on any stock exchange, market or trading facility on which the shares are traded or in private transactions.  These dispositions may be at fixed prices, at prevailing market prices at the time of sale, at prices related to the prevailing market price, at varying prices determined at the time of sale, or at negotiated prices.  The selling stockholders may use one or more of the following methods when disposing of the shares or interests therein:

 ordinary brokerage transactions and transactions in which the broker-dealer solicits purchasers;

 block trades in which the broker-dealer will attempt to sell the shares as agent but may position and resell a portion of the block as principal to facilitate the transaction;

 through brokers, dealers or underwriters that may act solely as agents;

 purchases by a broker-dealer as principal and resale by the broker-dealer for its account;

 an exchange distribution in accordance with the rules of the applicable exchange;

 privately negotiated transactions;

 through the writing or settlement of options or other hedging transactions entered into after the effective date of the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part, whether through an options exchange or otherwise;

 broker-dealers may agree with the selling stockholder to sell a specified number of such shares at a stipulated price per share;

 one or more underwritten offerings on a firm commitment or best efforts basis;

 a combination of any such methods of disposition; and

 any other method permitted pursuant to applicable law.

The selling stockholders may also sell shares under Rule 144 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or Securities Act, if available, rather than under this prospectus.

Broker-dealers engaged by the selling stockholders may arrange for other broker-dealers to participate in sales.  Broker-dealers may receive commissions or discounts from the selling stockholders (or, if any broker-dealer acts as agent for the purchaser of shares, from the purchaser) in amounts to be negotiated.  The selling stockholders do not expect these commissions and discounts to exceed what is customary in the types of transactions involved.


The selling stockholders may from time to time pledge or grant a security interest in some or all of the shares of common stock owned by them and, if they default in the performance of their secured obligations, the pledgees or secured parties may offer and sell shares of common stock from time to time under this prospectus, or under a supplement or amendment to this prospectus under Rule 424(b)(3) or other applicable provision of the Securities Act amending the list of selling stockholders to include the pledgee, transferee or other successors in interest as selling stockholders under this prospectus.

Upon being notified in writing by a selling stockholder that any material arrangement has been entered into with a broker-dealer for the sale of common stock through a block trade, special offering, exchange distribution or secondary distribution or a purchase by a broker or dealer, we will file a supplement to this prospectus, if required, pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act, disclosing (i) the name of such selling stockholder and of the participating broker-dealer(s), (ii) the number of shares involved, (iii) the price at which such shares of common stock were sold, (iv) the commissions paid or discounts or concessions allowed to such broker-dealer(s), where applicable, (v) that such broker-dealer(s) did not conduct any investigation to verify the information set out or incorporated by reference in this prospectus, and (vi) other facts material to the transaction.  In addition, upon being notified in writing by the selling stockholder that a donee or pledge intends to sell more than 500 shares of common stock, we will file a supplement to this prospectus if then required in accordance with applicable securities law.

The selling stockholders also may transfer the shares of common stock in other circumstances, in which case the transferees, pledgees or other successors in interest will be the selling beneficial owners for purposes of this prospectus.

 In connection with the sale of the shares of common stock or interests in shares of common stock, the selling stockholders may enter into hedging transactions after the effective date of the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part with broker-dealers or other financial institutions, which may in turn engage in short sales of the common stock in the course of hedging the positions they assume.  The selling stockholders may also sell shares of common stock short after the effective date of the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part and deliver these securities to close out their short positions, or loan or pledge the common stock to broker-dealers that in turn may sell these securities.  The selling stockholders may also enter into option or other transactions after the effective date of the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part with broker-dealers or other financial institutions or the creation of one or more derivative securities which require the delivery to such broker-dealer or other financial institution of shares offered by this prospectus, which shares such broker-dealer or other financial institution may resell pursuant to this prospectus (as supplemented or amended to reflect such transaction).

The selling stockholders and any broker-dealers or agents that are involved in selling the shares may be deemed to be "underwriters" within the meaning of the Securities Act in connection with such sales.  In such event, any commissions received by such broker-dealers or agents and any profit on the resale of the shares purchased by them may be deemed to be underwriting commissions or discounts under the Securities Act.  We have advised the selling stockholders that they are required to comply with Regulation M promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, during such time as it may be engaged in a distribution of the shares.  The foregoing may affect the marketability of the common stock.


The aggregate proceeds to the selling stockholders from the sale of the common stock offered by them will be the purchase price of the common stock less discounts or commissions, if any.  The selling stockholders reserve the right to accept and, together with their agents from time to time, to reject, in whole or in part, any proposed purchase of common stock to be made directly or through agents.  We will not receive any of the proceeds from this offering.

We are required to pay all fees and expenses incident to the registration of the shares.  We have agreed to indemnify the selling stockholders against certain losses, claims, damages and liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act or otherwise.

 We have agreed with the selling stockholders to keep the registration statement of which this prospectus constitutes a part effective until the earlier of (a) such time as all of the shares covered by this prospectus have been disposed of pursuant to and in accordance with the registration statement or pursuant to Rule 144 of the Securities Act, (b) the date on which the shares of common stock covered by this prospectus may be sold by non-affiliates without any volume or manner of sale restrictions or current public information requirement pursuant to Rule 144 of the Securities Act, and (c) two years from the date of the purchase agreement.

A selling stockholder that is venture capital fund, institutional investor or pooled investment vehicle may elect to make an in-kind distribution of shares of Common Stock, on a pro rata basis or otherwise, to its members, general or limited partners or shareholders pursuant to the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part by delivering a prospectus. To the extent that such members, partners, or shareholders are not affiliates of ours, such members, partners or shareholders would thereby receive freely tradable shares of Common Stock covered by this registration statement pursuant to such distribution.

AGREEMENT

 NOW, THEREFORE, in order to induce Purchaser to consummate the Transactions, Holder is willing to enter into this Agreement.

1. REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND CERTAIN AGREEMENTS OF HOLDER. Holder hereby represents and warrants to Purchaser as of the date hereof and as of the Commencement Date (as defined in Section 2.5) as follows:

1.1 Ownership of Securities.  Holder is the record owner of that number of shares of the Seller Capital Stock set forth on the signature page hereto (all such shares owned of record by Holder on such date, collectively, the "Shares"). Except for such Equity Interests (as defined below) designated as being owned by such Holder underneath such Holder's name on the signature page to this Agreement, such Shares, along with the Seller Warrants and Seller Options set forth on the signature page hereto, constitute all of the ownership or equity interests in Seller, whether vested or unvested, and whether actual or promised (the Shares, Seller Warrants and Seller Options, together with any such interest, the "Equity Interests"), owned, beneficially or of record, by such Holder, and such Holder does not own, beneficially or of record, any other Seller Capital Stock, or other Equity Interests and has no options, warrants, convertible securities (other than the Convertible Notes) or other rights to acquire any Seller Capital Stock or other Equity Interest.EAST\173293471.6 EAST\173293471.6 No person who is not a signatory to this Agreement (or such signatory's spouse for purposes of applicable community property laws) has a beneficial interest in or a right to acquire or vote any of the Equity Interests (other than, if Holder is a partnership or a limited liability company, the rights and interests of Persons that own partnership interests or limited liability company membership interests or units in Holder under the partnership agreement or operating agreement governing Holder and applicable partnership or limited liability company law).  At the Termination Time (as defined in Section 8.12 below), the Equity Interests will not be subject to any Encumbrances (other than Encumbrances created pursuant to this Agreement).  Holder's principal residence or place of business is set forth on the signature page hereto.


1.2 Seller Warrants.  Holder is the sole holder of the Seller Warrants, if any, designated as being owned by such Holder underneath such Holder's name on the signature page to this Agreement.  Neither the Seller Warrant nor the shares of Seller Capital Stock issuable upon exercise of the Seller Warrant owned by such Holder are subject to any Encumbrances or to any rights of first refusal of any kind, and such Holder has not granted any rights to purchase such Seller Warrant or any shares of Seller Capital Stock issuable upon exercise of the Seller Warrant to any other Person.  Such Holder has the sole right to consent to the cancellation, termination and extinguishment of the Seller Warrant. Such Seller Warrants constitute the only Seller Warrants owned, beneficially or of record, by such Holder, and, except as designated as being owned by such Holder underneath such Holder's name on the signature page to this Agreement, such Holder has no other options, warrants or other rights to acquire Seller Capital Stock or other Equity Interests.

1.3 Power, Capacity and Authority. Holder has all requisite power, capacity and authority to enter into this Agreement and to perform its obligations under this Agreement and consummate the Transactions. The execution and delivery of this Agreement by Holder and the consummation by Holder of the Transactions have been duly authorized by all necessary action, if any, on the part of Holder (or its board of directors or similar governing body, as applicable), and no other actions or proceedings on the part of Holder are necessary to authorize the execution and delivery by Holder of this Agreement and the consummation by Holder of the Transactions. This Agreement constitutes Holder's valid and legally binding obligation, enforceable against Holder in accordance with its terms, except as may be limited by (i) applicable bankruptcy and other similar Legal Requirements affecting the rights of creditors generally and (ii) rules of law governing specific performance, injunctive relief and other equitable remedies.

1.4 Brokers.  Holder is not obligated for the payment of any fees or expenses of any investment banker, broker, finder or similar party in connection with the origin, negotiation or execution of the Purchase Agreement, the Asset Purchase, or any the Transactions.

1.5 Accredited Investor. Holder is an accredited investor as defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D promulgated under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

1.6 Entirely for own Account.  By Holder's execution of this Agreement, Holder  hereby acknowledges that the Purchaser Common Stock to be acquired by him, her or it will be acquired for investment for Holder's own account, not as a nominee or agent, and not with a view to distribute any part thereof, and that such party has no present intention of selling, transferring, granting any participation in, or otherwise distributing the same, except as may be permitted by applicable securities laws.  By executing this Agreement, Holder further represents that it does not presently have any contract, undertaking, agreement or arrangement with any Person to sell, transfer or grant participations to such Person or to any third Person with respect to the Purchaser Common Stock other than as may be permitted by applicable securities laws.


1.7 Disclosure of Information.  Holder has had an opportunity to discuss Purchaser's (including Purchaser's subsidiaries') business, management and financial affairs with Purchaser's (and such subsidiaries') management and has had an opportunity to review Purchaser's facilities.  Holder understands that such discussions, as well as any business plan and any other written information delivered or made available by or on behalf of Purchaser to Seller, were intended to describe the aspects of Purchaser's business which it believes to be material. 

2. COVENANTS.  Each Holder hereby covenants to Purchaser as follows:

2.1 Restrictions on Shares.  Holder shall not, without the written consent of Purchaser, directly or indirectly, transfer (except as may be specifically required by court order or by operation of law), offer, pledge, sell, contract to sell, sell any option or contract to purchase, purchase any option or contract to sell, grant any option, right or warrant for the sale of, or otherwise dispose of or transfer any of the Shares, or make any offer or enter into any agreement or binding arrangement or commitment providing for any of the foregoing, at any time prior to the Termination Time; provided, that Holder may, prior to the Termination Time, (i) if Holder is a partnership, limited liability company or corporation, distribute Shares to its partners, members and equity holders (as applicable) or transfer the Shares to its affiliates or (ii) if Holder is an individual, transfer the Shares to any member of Holder's immediate family or to a trust for the benefit of Holder or any member of Holder's immediate family for estate planning purposes or in the event of death of Holder; provided, further, that any transfer referred to in the foregoing clauses (i) or (ii) shall be permitted only if, as a precondition to such transfer, the transferee agrees in writing to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement.  After the date of this Agreement and prior to the Termination Time, Holder shall not, directly or indirectly, grant any proxies or powers of attorney with respect to any of the Shares other than the Irrevocable Proxy (as defined in Section 6), deposit any of the Shares into a voting trust, or enter into a voting agreement or similar arrangement or commitment with respect to any of the Shares.  Any shares of Seller Capital Stock that Holder purchases or with respect to which Holder otherwise acquires beneficial ownership after the date of this Agreement and prior to the Termination Time, including by reason of any stock split, stock dividend, reverse stock split, reclassification, recapitalization or other similar transaction, shall be subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement to the same extent as if they constituted Shares and shall be deemed to be Shares for the purposes hereof.

2.2 Compliance. Holder shall not knowingly take any action that would (a) make any representation or warranty contained herein untrue or incorrect or (b) would reasonably be expected to have the effect of impairing the ability of Holder to perform its, his or her obligations under this Agreement or preventing or materially delaying the consummation of any of the transactions contemplated by the Purchase Agreement, this Agreement or the Seller Stockholder Written Consent (as defined herein).

2.3 Agreement to Vote Shares.  At any time on or after the date hereof, and prior to the Termination Time, at every meeting of the stockholders of Seller, and at every adjournment thereof, and on every action or approval by written resolution or consent of the stockholders of Seller, in each case, with respect to any of (i) the adoption of the Purchase Agreement, (ii) the approval of the Asset Purchase, the Purchase Agreement, any Seller Ancillary Agreement or the Plan of Liquidation or (iii) the Transactions, Holder shall vote the Shares in respect of which Holder is entitled to vote at any such meeting or in connection with any such written consent in favor of the adoption of the Purchase Agreement and the approval of the Asset Purchase, the Purchase Agreement, each Seller Ancillary Agreement, the Plan of Liquidation and the Transactions; provided, however, that nothing in this Agreement shall preclude Holder from exercising full power and authority to vote the Shares in Holder's discretion for or against any proposal submitted to a vote of the stockholders of Seller to approve any payment which would, in the absence of such approval, constitute a parachute payment under Section 280G of the Code. 


2.4 Irrevocable Consent. If Holder has not previously done so, concurrently with the execution and delivery of this Agreement, Holder shall deliver to Purchaser a duly executed written consent in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A (the "Seller Stockholder Written Consent").  Holder hereby agrees not to modify, revoke or rescind the Seller Stockholder Written Consent or any resolution contained therein and further agrees not to adopt any resolutions modifying, rescinding or revoking the Seller Stockholder Written Consent or any resolution contained therein or otherwise precluding approval of the Asset Purchase, the Purchase Agreement, any Seller Ancillary Agreements or the adoption of the Purchase Agreement, unless and until the Purchase Agreement is terminated pursuant to Article VII thereof.  Holder agrees that it will not bring, commence, institute, maintain, prosecute, participate in or voluntarily aid any action, claim, suit or cause of action, in law or in equity, in any court or before any Governmental Entity, which (a) challenges the validity of or seeks to enjoin the operation of any provision of the Seller Stockholder Written Consent or this Agreement or the execution and delivery of the Purchase Agreement and the Seller Ancillary Agreements or the consummation of the Asset Purchase and the Transactions or (b) that the execution and delivery of the Seller Stockholder Written Consent or this Agreement by Holder, as applicable, either alone or together with the other Seller Stockholder Written Consents or voting or stockholder agreements and proxies to be delivered in connection with the execution of the Purchase Agreement, breaches any fiduciary duty, whether of the board of directors of Seller or any member thereof, of any officer of Seller or of any holder of Seller Capital Stock or other Seller securities.

2.5 Standstill. The standstill period (the "Standstill Period") shall begin on the date that Holder receives its respective shares of Purchaser Stock Consideration pursuant to the Plan of Liquidation (the "Commencement Date") and extends through the later of (i) eighteen (18) months from the Commencement Date and (ii) the date of Purchaser's annual meeting held in the calendar year following the year of receipt of such shares of Purchaser Stock Consideration.  Holder, on behalf of his, her or itself and his, her or its Affiliates (as defined in Section 2.9(a)) agrees that during the Standstill Period, neither it nor any of its Affiliates (as hereinafter defined) will, and it will cause each of its Affiliates not to, directly or indirectly, in any manner, alone or in concert with others:

(a) solicit, or encourage or in any way engage in any solicitation of, any proxies or consents or otherwise become a "participant" in a "solicitation" (as such terms are defined in Regulation 14A under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (together with the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, the "Exchange Act")), directly or indirectly, of proxies or consents (including, without limitation, any solicitation of consents that seeks to call a special meeting of stockholders or by encouraging or participating in any "withhold" or similar campaign), in each case, with respect to any securities of Purchaser or any securities convertible or exchangeable into or exercisable for any Purchaser Common Stock or any other securities of Purchaser (collectively, the "Purchaser Securities") in opposition to the recommendation or proposal of the board of directors of Purchaser (the "Purchaser Board"), or recommend or request or induce or attempt to induce any other person to take any such actions, or seek to advise, encourage or influence any other person with respect to the voting of the Purchaser Securities (including any withholding from voting) or grant a proxy with respect to voting of any Purchaser Securities or other voting securities to any person other than to the Purchaser Board or persons appointed as proxies by the Purchaser Board;

(b) advise, knowingly encourage, or instruct any person with respect to any of the matters covered by this Section 2 at any annual or special meeting of stockholders;

(c) agree or propose to deposit any of the Purchaser Securities in any voting trust or similar arrangement, or subject any of the Purchaser Securities to any arrangement or agreement with respect to the voting thereof (including but not limited to a voting agreement or pooling arrangement), other than any such voting trust, arrangement or agreement solely among Holder and his, her or its Affiliates which is otherwise constructed in accordance with this Agreement;


(d) seek or knowingly encourage any person to submit nominations in furtherance of a "contested solicitation" or take other applicable action for the election or removal of directors with respect to Purchaser;

(e) (i) nominate or recommend for nomination any person for election at an annual or special meeting of stockholders of Purchaser, (ii) submit any proposal for consideration at, or bring any other business before any annual or special meeting of stockholders of Purchaser, or (iii) initiate, knowingly encourage or participate in any "withhold" or similar campaign with respect to any annual or special meeting of stockholders of Purchaser;

(f) form, join in or in any way participate in any "partnership, limited partnership, syndicate or other group," including, without limitation, a "group" each as defined under Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act with any person who is not a member of Holder (any such person, a "Third Party"), with respect to any Purchaser Securities or take any other action that would divest Holder of the ability to vote or cause to be voted any Purchaser Securities (or therein interest) owned as of the date of this Agreement and as of the Commencement Date or subsequently acquired in accordance with this Agreement;

(g) (i) call or seek to call or request the call of any meeting of stockholders, including by written consent, (ii) seek, alone or in concert with others, representation on, or nominate any candidate to, the Purchaser Board, (iii) seek the removal of any member of the Purchaser Board, (iv) solicit consents from stockholders or otherwise act or seek to act by written consent, or (v) make a request for a list of Purchaser's stockholders or for any books and records of Purchaser;

(h) purchase or cause to be purchased or otherwise acquire or enter into any option or contract to purchase, any (i) beneficial ownership of any of the Purchaser Securities (other than securities issued pursuant to a stock split, stock dividend or similar corporate action), if immediately after the taking of such action, Holder, together with his, her or its Affiliates would, in the aggregate, beneficially own more than five percent (5%) of the then-outstanding shares of Purchaser Common Stock, or (ii) interests in any of Purchaser's indebtedness, in each case, unless 3 Business Days prior to such purchase, acquisition, or entrance into an option or contract,  Holder provides written notice to Purchaser (any such Holder, a "Reporting Holder");

(i) make or publicly advance any request or proposal that Purchaser or Board amend, modify or waive any provision of this Agreement, or take any action challenging the validity or enforceability of any provisions of this Section 2.2 (provided, that Holder may make confidential requests to the Purchaser Board to amend, modify or waive any provision of this Agreement, which the Purchaser Board may accept or reject in its sole discretion, so long as any such request is not publicly disclosed by Holder and is made by Holder in a manner that does not require the public disclosure thereof by Purchaser, Holder or any other person);

(j) acquire or agree, offer, seek or propose to acquire, or cause to be acquired, ownership (including beneficial ownership) of any of the assets or business of Purchaser or any rights or options to acquire any such assets or business from any person, in each case other than the Purchaser Securities;

(k) seek, propose or make any statement with respect to, or solicit, negotiate with, or provide any information to any person with respect to, a merger, consolidation, acquisition of control or other business combination, tender or exchange offer, purchase, sale or transfer of assets or securities, dissolution, liquidation, reorganization, change in structure or composition of the Purchaser Board, change in the executive officers of Purchaser, change in capital structure, recapitalization, dividend, share repurchase or similar transaction involving Purchaser, its subsidiaries or its business, whether or not any such transaction involves a change of control of Purchaser;


(l) disclose publicly, or privately in a manner that could reasonably be expected to become public, any intention, plan or arrangement inconsistent with the foregoing, or publicly or privately encourage or support any other stockholder or person or entity to take any of the aforementioned actions; or

(m) enter into any agreement, arrangement or understanding concerning any of the foregoing (other than this Agreement) or knowingly encourage or solicit any person to undertake any of the foregoing activities.

2.6 Lock-Up.  Holder and each of his, her or its Affiliates agrees that during the period beginning on the Commencement Date and ending on the twelve (12) month anniversary thereof (the "Lock-Up Period"), neither it nor any of its Affiliates (as hereinafter defined) will, and it will cause each of his, her or its Affiliates not to, directly or indirectly, in any manner, alone or in concert with others: (i) offer, pledge, sell, contract to sell, sell any option or contract to purchase, purchase any option or contract to sell, grant any option, right or warrant for the sale of, or otherwise dispose of or transfer any of the Purchaser Securities, whether now owned or hereafter acquired by the undersigned or with respect to which such Holder has or hereafter acquires the power of disposition (collectively, the "Lock-Up Securities"), or (ii) enter into any swap or any other agreement or any transaction that transfers, in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, the economic consequence of ownership of the Lock-Up Securities, whether any such swap, other agreement or other transaction is to be settled by delivery of the Purchaser Common Stock or other Purchaser Securities, in cash or otherwise; provided, however, that notwithstanding the foregoing, and subject to the conditions below, Holder may transfer the Lock-Up Securities without the prior written consent of Purchaser, provided, that (A) Holder receives a signed joinder to this Agreement from each donee, trustee, distributee, or transferee, as the case may be, (B) any such transfer shall not involve a disposition for value, (C) such transfers are not required to be reported with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Form 4 in accordance with Section 16 of the Exchange Act, and (D) the undersigned does not otherwise voluntarily effect any public filing or report regarding such transfers: (1) as a bona fide gift or gifts; (2) to any trust for the direct or indirect benefit of the undersigned or the immediate family of the undersigned (for purposes of this Section 2.6, "immediate family" shall mean any relationship by blood, marriage or adoption, not more remote than first cousin); (3) as a distribution to limited partners or stockholders of the undersigned; or (4) to the undersigned's Affiliates or to any investment fund or other entity controlled or managed by the undersigned.

2.7 Restricted Disposition Provision.  Holder and each of his, her or its Affiliates agrees that for the period beginning on the expiration of the Lock-Up Period and ending on the six (6) month anniversary thereof (the "Restricted Disposition Period"), if it or any of its Affiliates desires to sell any Lock-Up Securities, Holder and his, her or its Affiliates may only sell such Lock-Up Securities as follows: subject in all instances, applicable law, Holder and each of his, her and its Affiliates shall, in the aggregate, be permitted to sell on a daily basis, no more than the greater of (i) two percent (2%) of the total volume of shares of Purchaser publicly-traded on any nationally recognized exchange over the previous ten (10) trading days, on a non-cumulative basis, meaning that if the amount of shares allowed to be sold under this subparagraph are not sold in any specific day, that the unsold amount cannot be cumulated and sold on any subsequent day with the sale of other shares that are allowed to be sold on such specific day. For the avoidance of doubt, notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, any sales made by "affiliates" of Purchaser during the Restricted Disposition Period are also subject to the standard volume limitations applicable to any "affiliate" of Purchaser under Rule 144.


2.8 Mutual Non-Disparagement.  Subject to applicable law, each of the parties covenants and agrees that, during the Standstill Period (unless otherwise specified in accordance with this Agreement) or if earlier, until such time as the other party or any of its agents, subsidiaries, Affiliates, successors, assigns, officers, key employees or directors shall have breached this Section 2.8, neither he, she or it nor any of its respective agents, subsidiaries, Affiliates, successors, assigns, officers, key employees or directors, shall in any way criticize, attempt to discredit, make defamatory, derogatory, denigrating or disparaging remarks, comments or statements with respect to, call into disrepute, defame, make or cause to be made any statement or announcement that relates to and constitutes an ad hominem attack on, or relates to and otherwise disparages (or causes to be disparaged) the other parties or such other parties' subsidiaries, Affiliates, successors, assigns, officers (including any current, future or former officer of a party or a parties' subsidiaries), directors (including any current, future or former director of a party or a parties' subsidiaries), employees, stockholders, agents, attorneys or representatives, or any of their practices, procedures, businesses (current or future), business operations, subsidiaries, products or services, in any manner.

2.9 Additional Agreements.

(a) Holder agrees to cause his, her and its Affiliates to comply with the terms of this Agreement and shall be responsible for any breach of this Agreement by any such Affiliate. A breach of this Agreement by an Affiliate if such Affiliate is not a party hereto, shall be deemed to occur if such Affiliate engages in conduct that would constitute a breach of this Agreement if such Affiliate was a party hereto to the same extent as Holder, as applicable.  As used in this Agreement, the term "Affiliate" shall have the meaning set forth in Rule 12b-2 promulgated by the SEC under the Exchange Act, and shall include all persons or entities that at any time during the term of this Agreement become Affiliates of any party hereto, provided, however, that with respect to any Holder who is a natural person, the term "Affiliate" shall also include such Holder's spouse, relatives, spouse's relatives, and any executor or personal representative engaged, in either instance, for estate-planning purposes.

(b) This Section 2.9(b) shall only apply to a Holder that is a Significant Holder and for so long as Holder remains a Significant Holder, during the Standstill Period, Holder agrees that he, she or it will, and shall cause each of his, her or its Affiliates to vote all shares of the Purchaser Common Stock beneficially owned by Holder or such Affiliate (or otherwise for which it has voting rights) at each annual or special meeting of stockholders of Purchaser that such Holder appears at in person or by proxy (A) in favor of the slate of directors recommended by the Purchaser Board and any other proposal supported by a majority of the Purchaser Board; and (B) against any shareholder proposals or director nominations at such annual or special meeting which are not supported by the Purchaser Board; provided that any Holder that is a Substantial Holder as of the record date of such annual or special meeting shall attend each such annual or special meeting in person or by proxy; provided, further that such Holder does not need to vote in accordance with the provisions of this Section 2.9(b) if in the opinion of such Holder's independent legal counsel, the Purchaser Board was not complying with, or in breach of, its fiduciary duties.  For the avoidance of doubt, the voting covenants set forth in this Section 2 shall apply to all shares of Purchaser Common Stock beneficially owned by Holder or his, her or its Affiliates as of the record date for such meeting.

2.10 Significant Holder Restrictions

(a) Notwithstanding anything set forth in this Agreement to the contrary, the terms and provisions of Sections 2.5 and 2.9(b) shall apply to only to a Significant Holder.  A "Significant Holder" is a Holder that, at any time during the Standstill Period, holds 5,000 (such amount, the "Threshold Amount") or more shares of Purchaser Common Stock (or any security or instrument convertible into, or exchangeable for, Purchaser Common Stock (collectively, "Relevant Securities").  For the avoidance of doubt, if, at any time during the Standstill Period, a Holder who (i) is not a Significant Holder or (ii) is a Significant Holder but ceases to be a Significant Holder, in each case, acquires Relevant Securities which when aggregated with all Relevant Securities held by such Holder as of any date of determination exceed the Threshold Amount, then such Holder shall be deemed to be a Significant Holder as of such date of acquisition for purposes of this Agreement. 


If at any time during the Standstill Period any Holder becomes a Reporting Holder, then for purposes of Sections 2.5 and 2.9(b), the "Standstill Period" with respect to such Reporting Holder shall be deemed to be five years from the Commencement Date.  Once a Holder becomes a Reporting Holder, such Holder shall remain a Reporting Holder for all purposes of this Agreement until such time as such Holder holds less than 3% of the outstanding Relevant Securities.

3. RELEASE AND WAIVER; CONSENT; TERMINATION OF EXISTING AGREEMENTS.  Effective as of the Closing, Holder, for himself, herself or itself and on behalf of his, her or its heirs, legal representatives, successors and assigns (collectively, the "Relevant Persons"), hereby irrevocably, unconditionally and forever acquits, releases, waives and discharges Purchaser and Seller, and each of their respective officers, directors, managers, employees, agents, divisions, Subsidiaries, Affiliates, representatives, successors, predecessors and assigns (individually and collectively, the "Released Parties") from any and all past, present and future debts, losses, costs, bonds, suits, actions, causes of action, liabilities, contributions, attorneys' fees, interest, damages (including punitive damages), expenses, claims, potential claims, counterclaims, cross-claims, or demands, in law or in equity, asserted or unasserted, express or implied, known or unknown, matured or unmatured, contingent or vested, liquidated or unliquidated, of any kind or nature or description whatsoever, that any of the Relevant Persons had, presently has or may hereafter have or claim or assert to have against any of the Released Parties, in each case, by reason of any act, omission, transaction, occurrence, conduct, circumstance, condition, harm, matter, cause or thing that has occurred or existed at any time from the beginning of time up to and including the Closing, that in any way arise from or out of, are based upon or relate to (a) such Relevant Person's or Relevant Persons', as applicable, ownership or purported ownership of the Shares or other Equity Interests, or (b) the negotiation or execution of this Agreement, the Purchase Agreement or any of the other Seller Ancillary Agreements or the consummation of any of the Asset Purchase or Transactions; provided, that the foregoing release shall not apply to (i) such Relevant Person's or Relevant Persons', as applicable, rights arising out of the Purchase Agreement and each agreement attached as an exhibit thereto or entered into in connection therewith executed by and between such Relevant Person and Purchaser or any of its Affiliates, (ii) any claim that cannot be waived or released by law, (iii) any right to receive unpaid compensation or benefits as an employee of Seller, (iv) any right of a director (or a stockholder affiliated with such director that is a third-party beneficiary) or officer of Seller to indemnification by Seller or any successor under obligations of Seller, whether such rights exist under the certificate of incorporation or bylaws of Seller, any Contract with Seller, Seller's directors' and officers' or other fiduciary liability insurance policy, or otherwise (after taking into account such exceptions, the "Holder Claims"). The release is intended to be complete, global and all-encompassing and specifically includes claims that are known, unknown, fixed, contingent or conditional with respect to the matters described herein. With respect to such Holder Claims, Holder hereby expressly waives any and all rights conferred upon him, her or it by any statute or rule of law which provides that a release does not extend to claims which the claimant does not know or suspect to exist in his, her or its favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him, her or it must have materially affected his, her or its settlement with the released party, including the following provisions of California Civil Code Section 1542:

"A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS THAT THE CREDITOR OR RELEASING PARTY DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE AND THAT, IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER, WOULD HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR OR RELEASED PARTY."


Holder represents and warrants that, as of the date hereof and as of the Closing, the Relevant Persons have no Holder Claims against the Released Parties, including relating to any Contract between Holder and Seller, or Holder's interest in any equity or debt security of Seller, or in Holder's capacity as a current or former officer, director, employee, consultant or security holder of Seller; provided, that this representation and warranty does not extend to any claim or loss of the Relevant Person(s), or obligation to or right or remedy of the Relevant Person(s), arising under the Holder Claims.  Holder hereby irrevocably agrees not to assert, and shall cause the Relevant Person(s) not to assert, directly or indirectly, any Holder Claim, or to commence, institute or cause to be commenced or instituted, any proceeding of any kind against any Released Parties asserting any Holder Claim.

Holder hereby gives any consents or waivers that are reasonably required for the consummation of the Transactions and the Asset Purchase under the terms of any agreement or instrument to which Holder is a party or subject or in respect of any rights Holder may have in connection with the Asset Purchase or the other Transactions (whether such rights exist under the certificate of incorporation or bylaws of Seller, any Contract to which Seller is a party or by which it is, or any of its assets are, bound under statutory or common law or otherwise). Without limiting the generality or effect of the foregoing, Holder hereby waives any and all rights to contest or object to the execution and delivery of the Purchase Agreement, the Seller Board's actions in approving and recommending the Asset Purchase, the consummation of the Asset Purchase and the other Transactions, or to the execution and delivery of the Seller Stockholder Written Consent, or to seek damages or other legal or equitable relief in connection therewith.

Any and all existing agreements between Seller and Holder (in Holder's capacity as a holder of Equity Interests of Seller) shall, contingent upon the occurrence of the Closing, automatically terminate and be of no force and effect effective immediately prior to the Closing.  Contingent and effective upon the Closing, Holder hereby waives and terminates any rights of first refusal, preemptive rights, rights to notice, rights of co-sale, registration rights, information rights or any similar rights, in each case with respect to the equity securities of Seller, that Holder may have (whether under any Legal Requirements or otherwise) or could potentially have or acquire in connection with the Asset Purchase or otherwise.  From and after the Closing, Holder's right to receive consideration on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Purchase Agreement and a Plan of Liquidation shall constitute Holder's sole and exclusive right against Seller and/or Purchaser in respect of Holder's ownership of shares of Seller Capital Stock or other securities of Seller or status as a Holder of Seller or any agreement or instrument with Seller pertaining to the Shares or other securities of Seller or Holder's status as a holder of Equity Interest of Seller.  The covenants and agreements set forth in this Section 3, including the release set forth herein, shall survive the Closing indefinitely.

4. CONFIDENTIALITY.  Holder hereby agrees that the terms of this Agreement, the Purchase Agreement and any other agreement entered into in connection with the Transactions, shall be kept confidential by Holder and shall not be used by Holder for any purpose without the prior written consent of Purchaser; provided, however, that (a) Holder may disclose such information or terms if in the opinion of Holder's counsel Holder is required to do so by applicable Legal Requirements, provided that Holder notifies Purchaser in writing, to the extent permitted by applicable Legal Requirements, a reasonable period of time prior to disclosing such information so that Purchaser may seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy, or both (at Purchaser's sole expense); (b) if Holder is a venture capital fund, institutional investor or pooled investment vehicle, Holder may disclose the terms of this Agreement and the Purchase Agreement to (i) its current or former stockholders, members, general partners and limited partners (or any employee or representative of any of the foregoing) to the extent required pursuant to the terms of its organizational documents, (ii) to prospective investors, stockholders, members, general partners, limited partners (or any employee or representative of any of the foregoing) who agree to keep such terms confidential and (iii) to the extent necessary in the good faith exercise of the fiduciary duties of the general partner or manager of such Holder or otherwise required by applicable Legal Requirements; (c) following any public announcement of the Transactions, if ever, Holder may disclose the terms of the Purchase Agreement that are disclosed in such public announcement; (d) Holder may disclose such information or terms to the extent they become generally available to the public other than by virtue of a breach of (i) this provision by such Holder or its Affiliates or (ii) any use or disclosure restrictions applicable to such information or terms by any third party; (e) Holder may disclose such information or terms to the extent (i) rightfully acquired by Holder from a third party who has the right to disclose it and who provides it without restriction as to use or disclosure or (ii) independently developed by Holder without access to any information confidential and/or proprietary information of Seller; and (f) Holder may disclose such information or terms to its Affiliates and his, her or its or its Affiliates' respective professional advisers and, if Holder is not a natural person, to its employees or the employees of its Affiliates, in each case, who: (i) need to know such information; and (ii) agree to keep such information confidential.  Holder shall be responsible for any action taken by his, her or its Affiliates and its and their respective professional advisers and employees that, if such action had been taken by Holder, would have constituted a breach of this Section 4.


5. AGREEMENT TO INDEMNIFICATION PROVISIONS; APPOINTMENT OF SELLER AND THE SECURITYHOLDERS' AGENT. By executing and delivering this Agreement, Holder acknowledges and agrees to be bound by the escrow and indemnification provisions set forth in Article VIII of the Purchase Agreement, a copy of which has been made available to Holder, as a Securityholder including the indemnification obligations contained therein, the withholding of the Escrow Amount to partially secure the indemnification obligations of Seller (and, following a distribution of Purchaser Stock Consideration to Securityholders pursuant to the Plan of Liquidation, the Securityholders in accordance with their Pro Rata Share) in connection with the Asset Purchase and as described in the Purchase Agreement, the appointment of a Securityholders' agent pursuant to Sections 8.1 and 9.5 of the Purchase Agreement, if necessary, to perform the functions on behalf of Holder as set forth in the Purchase Agreement and the indemnification of such agent, if necessary. This Agreement and the representations, warranties and covenants contained herein shall become part of the Purchase Agreement and shall be subject to the escrow and indemnification provisions set forth in the Purchase Agreement, including any applicable indemnification obligations of Holder as a Securityholder contained in Article VIII of the Purchase Agreement, the withholding of the Escrow Amount, as applicable, and the limitations applicable to such obligations set forth therein.  The covenants and agreements set forth in this Section 5 shall survive the Closing in accordance with Article VIII of the Purchase Agreement.

6. IRREVOCABLE PROXY.  Concurrently with the execution and delivery of this Agreement, Holder shall deliver to Purchaser a duly executed irrevocable proxy in the form attached hereto as Exhibit B (as executed by Holder, the "Irrevocable Proxy") with respect to each and every meeting of stockholders of Seller or action or approval by written resolution or consent of stockholders of Seller prior to the Termination Time covering the total number of Shares in respect of which Holder is entitled to vote at any such meeting or in connection with any such written consent related to the subject matter described in Section 2.3.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, such Irrevocable Proxy shall not apply to any proposal submitted to a vote of the stockholders of Seller to approve any payment that would, in the absence of such approval, constitute a parachute payment under Section 280G of the Code, and Holder shall continue to have full power and authority to vote the Shares in Holder's sole discretion for or against any such proposal.  Upon the execution of this Agreement by Holder, (a) Holder hereby revokes any and all prior proxies (other than the Irrevocable Proxy) given by Holder with respect to the subject matter contemplated by the Irrevocable Proxy and Seller hereby consents to the revocation of any and all such prior proxies given by Holder to Seller with respect to such subject matter and (b) Holder shall not grant any subsequent proxies with respect to such subject matter until after the Termination Time.


7. SPOUSAL CONSENT & JOINDER. If Holder is a natural person residing in a community property state and has a spouse, such Holder's spouse shall duly complete, execute and deliver to Purchaser a Spousal Consent & Joinder in the form attached hereto as Exhibit C prior to the Closing.

8.2 Specific Performance; Injunctive Relief.  The parties hereto acknowledge that Purchaser will be irreparably harmed and that there will be no adequate remedy at law for a violation of any of the covenants or agreements of Holder set forth in this Agreement.  Therefore, it is agreed that, in addition to any other remedies that may be available to Purchaser upon any such violation of this Agreement, Purchaser shall have the right to enforce such covenants and agreements by specific performance, injunctive relief or by any other means available to Purchaser at law or in equity and Holder hereby waives any and all defenses that could exist in its favor in connection with such enforcement and waives any requirement for the security or posting of any bond in connection with such enforcement.

8.3 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, all of which shall be considered one and the same instrument and shall become effective when one or more counterparts have been signed by each of the parties hereto and delivered to the other parties hereto; it being understood that all parties hereto need not sign the same counterpart. The delivery by facsimile or by electronic delivery in PDF format (or any electronic signature complying with the U.S. federal ESIGN Act of 2000) of this Agreement with all executed signature pages (in counterparts or otherwise) shall be sufficient to bind the parties hereto to the terms and conditions set forth herein.  All of the counterparts will together constitute one and the same instrument and each counterpart will constitute an original of this Agreement.

8.4 Entire Agreement. This Agreement and the documents and instruments and other agreements specifically referred to herein or delivered pursuant hereto (i) constitute the entire agreement among the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior agreements and understandings, both written and oral, among the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and (ii) are not intended to confer, and shall not be construed as conferring, upon any person other than the parties hereto any rights or remedies hereunder.

8.5 Severability. In the event that 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 necessary to effect the intent of the parties hereto. The parties hereto shall use all reasonable efforts to replace such void or unenforceable provision of this Agreement with a valid and enforceable provision that shall achieve, to the greatest extent possible, the economic, business and other purposes of such void or unenforceable provision.

8.6 Remedies. Except as otherwise provided herein, any and all remedies herein expressly conferred upon a party 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 of any one remedy shall not preclude the exercise of any other remedy. It is accordingly agreed that the parties hereto shall be entitled to an injunction or injunctions to prevent breaches of this Agreement and to enforce specifically the terms and provisions hereof, this being in addition to any other remedy to which they are entitled at law or in equity, and the parties hereto hereby waive the requirement of any posting of a bond in connection with the remedies described herein.


8.7 Governing Law. This Agreement, all acts and transactions pursuant hereto and all obligations of the parties hereto shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware without reference to such state's principles of conflicts of law that would refer a matter to a different jurisdiction.

8.8 Amendment. Any provision of this Agreement may be amended or waived if, and only if, such amendment or waiver is in writing and signed, in the case of an amendment, by each of the parties hereto, or in the case of a waiver, by the party against which the waiver is to be effective.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, no failure or delay by any party hereto in exercising any right hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof nor shall any single or partial exercise thereof preclude any other or further exercise of any right hereunder.

8.9 Assignment.  Neither this Agreement nor any of the rights, interests or obligations hereunder may be assigned or delegated, 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.  Notwithstanding the foregoing or anything herein to the contrary, it is acknowledged that Seller shall be liquidated following the Closing Date pursuant to the Plan of Liquidation, and it is acknowledged and agreed that in connection therewith, and pursuant to Section 9.5 of the Purchase Agreement and Section 5 hereof, Seller's rights and obligations under this Agreement and the Purchase Agreement, including with respect to any consideration to be delivered after such liquidation and any indemnification obligations, may be assigned to the Securityholders or any limited liability company or limited partnership into which Seller is converted (or new limited liability company or limited partnership it is merged into to achieve substantially the same effect as a conversion of Seller) (such entity, a "Seller Successor Entity") in accordance with the Plan of Liquidation; provided, that in the event of such assignment to Securityholders pursuant to Section 9.5 of the Purchase Agreement, Section 5 hereof and this Section 8.9, a Securityholders' agent shall be appointed pursuant to a customary securityholder agent relationship to act on behalf of the Securityholders in respect of the indemnification provisions in Article VIII of the Purchase Agreement.  In the event that the Purchaser Stock Consideration is transferred, contributed or assigned to a Seller Successor Entity following the Plan of Liquidation, such Seller Successor Entity shall, as a condition to such transfer, agree to be bound by any and all obligations of Seller under this Agreement.

8.10 Rules of Construction. The parties hereto agree that they have been (or have had the opportunity to be) represented by counsel during the negotiation, preparation and execution of this Agreement and, therefore, waive, with respect to this Agreement, the application of any law, regulation, holding or rule of construction providing that ambiguities in an agreement or other document shall be construed against the party drafting such agreement or document.

8.11 Additional Documents, Etc. Holder shall execute and deliver any additional documents reasonably necessary or desirable to carry out the purpose and intent of this Agreement.

8.12 WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. EACH OF THE PARTIES HERETO HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ALL RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION, PROCEEDING OR COUNTERCLAIM (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE) ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE ACTIONS OF ANY PARTY HERETO IN NEGOTIATION, ADMINISTRATION, PERFORMANCE OR ENFORCEMENT HEREOF.


8.13 Term; Termination. This Agreement shall become null and void and shall have no effect whatsoever, without any action on the part of any Person, upon the Termination Time.  As used herein, the term "Termination Time" shall mean the earlier to occur of (i) the termination of the Purchase Agreement in accordance with the provisions of Article VII of the Purchase Agreement and (ii) the termination of this Agreement by consent of the parties hereto.

13. Authorization. The Board is hereby authorized, without further action by Stockholders, to do and perform or cause the officers of the Company, subject to approval of the Board, to do and perform any and all acts, and to make, execute, deliver or adopt any and all agreements, resolutions, conveyances, certificates and other documents of every kind that are deemed necessary, appropriate or desirable, in the absolute discretion of the Board, to implement this Plan and the transactions contemplated hereby, including, without limiting the foregoing, all filings or acts required by any state or federal law or regulation to wind up its affairs and to effect the Conversion Event or dissolution of the Company, as applicable, and as set forth herein.  The Board shall have full discretion to interpret the provisions of this Plan.

Form of Domain Name Assignment Agreement

 This Domain Name Assignment ("Domain Name Assignment") is made as of April 12, 2020 (the "Effective Date"), by and between Tamir Biotechnology, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the "Assignor") and Orgenesis Inc., a Nevada corporation (the "Assignee").  Assignee and Assignor are sometimes referred to herein individually as a "Party" and collectively as the "Parties."  Capitalized terms used herein, but not defined herein, shall have the meaning ascribed to such terms in the Purchase Agreement (as defined below).

 WHEREAS, Assignor and Assignee entered into that certain Asset Purchase Agreement, dated as of April 7, 2020 (the "Purchase Agreement"), pursuant to which Assignor has sold to Assignee certain Purchased Assets, including the domain names set forth on Schedule I, attached hereto.

 WHEREAS, Assignor is the exclusive owner of the domain names set forth on Schedule I, attached hereto, including any and all goodwill associated therewith (collectively, the "Assigned Domains").  As of the Effective Date and pursuant to the terms hereof and of the Purchase Agreement, Assignor wishes to assign to Assignee, and the Assignee wishes to assume, all right, title and interest in and to the Assigned Domains.

 WHEREAS, the Parties wish to memorialize the assignment of the Assigned Domains from Assignor to Assignee and to update the ownership records for such Assigned Domains to reflect Assignee as the owner of record for such Assigned Domains.

 NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing and for other good and valuable consideration furnished by Assignee to Assignor, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged by the Parties:

1. As of the Effective Date, Assignor agrees to assign, transfer, sell and convey, and hereby assigns, transfers, sells and conveys to Assignee, its successors and assigns, all of Assignor's right, title, and interest in and to the Assigned Domains and all registrations and applications therefor and any unregistered or registered trademarks, service marks, copyrights or other intellectual property or proprietary rights based on or in any way related to the Assigned Domains, all goodwill associated therewith and all other corresponding rights that are or may be hereafter secured under the laws of any country, now or hereafter in effect, for Assignee's own use and enjoyment, and for the use and enjoyment of Assignee's successors, assigns or other legal representatives, as fully and entirely as the same would have been held and enjoyed by such Assignor if this Domain Name Assignment had not been made, including all right, title and interest in and to all income, proceeds, royalties, damages, claims and payments which accrue, or have accrued, prior to and as of the Effective Date or thereafter and are due or payable with respect thereto, and in and to all causes of action, either at law or in equity, for any past, present or future infringement of the Assigned Domains, or other violation or unauthorized use of the Assigned Domains, with the right to sue for, and collect the same.

2. Assignor and Assignee hereby authorize and request that the applicable registration authority transfer the registrations for the Assigned Domains from Assignor to Assignee at Assignee's sole cost and expense.  Within 5 business days of the Effective Date, Assignor shall provide all registrar login information and domain management criteria to Assignee to allow Assignee to gain access to and control over the Assigned Domains or shall effectuate transfer of the Assigned Domains to the Assignee in the applicable registrar(s).

3. The Parties acknowledge and agree that certain documents may need to be executed and delivered by Assignor to effectuate transfer of title to the Assigned Domains to Assignee.  Assignor agrees to provide to Assignee and Assignee's successors, assigns or other legal representatives, all such cooperation and assistance (including, without limitation, the execution and delivery of any affidavits, declarations, oaths, exhibits, assignments, powers of attorney or other documentation), reasonably requested by Assignee to more fully and effectively effectuate the purposes of this Domain Name Assignment, at Assignee's sole expense.


4. Each provision of this Domain Name Assignment will be interpreted in such a manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law, but if any term or other provision of this Domain Name Assignment is held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable under applicable law, all other provisions of this Domain Name Assignment shall remain in full force and effect.

5. This Domain Name Assignment may be executed in counterparts, each of which will be deemed an original, but all of which together constitute one and the same original.  This Domain Name Assignment may not be amended except by an instrument in writing signed by each of the Parties hereto.

6. This Domain Name Assignment shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the Laws of the State of Delaware without giving effect to any choice or conflict of Law provision or rule (whether of the State of Delaware or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the Laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Delaware.
