Notwithstanding the foregoing, and notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, if the immediately preceding sentence would require the Closing to occur (i) prior to October 15, 2008, then the Closing shall not occur prior to such date unless otherwise mutually agreed by Purchaser and Seller, (ii) after November 9, 2008 and before January 1, 2009, then the Closing shall not occur (and Purchaser and BIL shall not be required to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement) until after January 1, 2009 unless Purchaser in its sole and absolute discretion agrees to an earlier date, and (iii) after January 1, 2009 and prior to January 15, 2009, then the Closing shall not occur (and Seller shall not be required to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement) until January 15, 2009 unless Seller in its sole and absolute discretion agrees to an earlier date.

     1.7 Delivery of Assets; Further Conveyances and Assumptions; Consent of Third Parties.
          (a) The parties hereto acknowledge and agree that all Purchased Technology and Technology elements of the Licensed IP Assets will be delivered at the Closing by electronic transmission and/or in physical form, in each case as Purchaser shall reasonably direct within five (5) calendar days prior to the Closing; provided, however, that the delivery of such Purchased Technology and of the Technology elements of the Licensed IP Assets shall be governed by the applicable provisions of the Transition Services Agreement (or related statement of work), to the extent (and only to the extent) expressly covered thereby and expressly enumerated therein. In addition, on the Closing Date, Seller shall deliver (i) to Purchaser at the site designated by Purchaser copies or originals of all Business Books and Records, Assigned Contracts, Assigned Permits and Approvals and (ii) at the locations designated by Purchaser all other Purchased Assets. With respect to any Purchased Assets that are computer software or are otherwise determined to constitute “prewritten programs” within the meaning of the California Sales and Use Tax Regulations (collectively, the “Purchased Software”), Purchaser and Seller shall (and, to the extent appropriate, Seller shall cause its Affiliates to) take all steps necessary to ensure that the transfer of the Purchased Software is not subject to California sales or use Tax, including transferring the Purchased Software either (i) by remote telecommunications (where Purchaser does not obtain possession of any tangible personal property, such as storage media, in connection with the transfer) or (ii) by Seller (and, to the extent appropriate, Seller’s Affiliates) installing the Purchased Software on Purchaser’s computers without providing any storage media to Purchaser in connection with the transfer.
          (b) From time to time following the Closing, Purchaser and Seller shall, and shall cause their respective Subsidiaries and Affiliates to, execute, acknowledge and deliver all such further conveyances, notices, assumptions, releases, assignments and such other

-9-


 

instruments, and shall take such further actions, as may be reasonably necessary (i) to assure fully to Purchaser, BIL or any other Subsidiary of Purchaser acquiring Purchased Assets and their respective successors or assigns, the transfer to Purchaser and the ownership, possession and control by Purchaser of all of the Purchased Assets, (ii) to enable Purchaser, its Subsidiaries and its and their respective successors or assigns to exercise their license rights under the Intellectual Property License Agreements, including the delivery of the Technology elements of the Licensed IP Assets, (iii) otherwise to make effective the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, (iv) to assure fully to Seller the assumption by Purchaser of the Assumed Liabilities and otherwise to make effective the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, and (v) to seek to obtain for Purchaser, using commercially reasonable efforts, the benefits of the performance warranties, representations or guarantees received by Seller or any of its Subsidiaries pursuant to Contracts with third parties applicable to the Purchased Assets (including Technology); provided, however, that (x) the delivery of such Purchased Assets and of the Technology elements of the Licensed IP Assets shall be governed by the applicable provision of the Transition Services Agreement (or related statement of work), to the extent (and only to the extent) expressly covered thereby and expressly enumerated therein; (y) Seller shall deliver all the forms of the Technology elements of the Purchased Assets and of the Licensed IP Assets then in the possession of Seller, its Subsidiaries or Affiliates (including, by of example, the Source Code, object code and machine-executable forms of any Software), in accordance with Section 1.7(a); and (z) upon identification by either Party of any prior version of Technology included in the Purchased Assets previously undelivered, Seller shall deliver such version to Purchaser if such version then exists in Seller’s possession. In addition, Seller may retain copies of the relevant Technology elements of the Purchased IP Assets solely for purposes of enabling Seller and its Subsidiaries to exercise their license rights pursuant to the Intellectual Property License Agreements. In addition, to the extent that Purchaser received a copy, Purchaser shall, and shall cause its Subsidiaries to, take such further action as may be reasonably necessary to deliver copies of the Technology elements of the Purchased IP Assets to Seller and its Subsidiaries and Affiliates for purposes of enabling Seller and its Subsidiaries to exercise their license rights pursuant to the Intellectual Property License Agreements.
          (c) Nothing in this Agreement or in the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby shall be construed as an attempt or agreement to assign (or enter into a sublease with respect to) any Purchased Asset, Contract underlying a consent required by Section 6.3(d), or other Contract, Permit (including any Environmental Permit), Approval, certificate, authorization or other right, which by its terms or by Law is nonassignable (or otherwise is prohibited) without the consent of a third party or a Governmental or Regulatory Authority or is cancelable by a third party in the event of an assignment (or sublease) (“Nonassignable Assets”) unless and until such consent shall have been obtained; provided, however that the Parties acknowledge and agree that the Real Property Transfer Agreements for Seller’s Assigned Leasehold and Subleasehold Interests in Frimley, United Kingdom and Shanghai, China shall be in the form of a real property license or similar occupancy agreement which shall not require the respective landlord’s consent, and Purchaser’s employees shall have the right to occupy such Nonassignable Assets in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Real Property Transfer Agreements applicable thereto. Seller and Purchaser shall, and shall cause each of its relevant Subsidiaries to, diligently and expeditiously take such action as is necessary or advisable to obtain such consents as promptly as reasonably practicable; provided, however, that all costs and expenses (other than costs and expenses of Seller’s legal counsel) of obtaining any such consent,

-10-


 

including consents or renegotiations of any other Contract, Permit (including any Environmental Permit), Approval, certificate, authorization or other right constituting a consent required by Section 6.3(d) or other arrangement that the Parties mutually agree shall be delivered in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby, shall be the responsibility of Purchaser (it being understood and agreed that nothing herein shall require Purchaser, in connection with any such required consent or arrangement, (i) to pay or assume responsibility for any unreasonable cost or expense or (ii) agree to additional terms and conditions that are adverse to Purchaser in any material respect, in each case in connection with the applicable Contract, Permit, Approval, or other instrument to which such required consent relates). To the extent not prohibited by applicable Law and the terms of the Nonassignable Assets, in the event any such consents to assignment cannot be obtained, such Nonassignable Assets shall be held, from and after the Closing, by Seller and its Subsidiaries in trust for Purchaser and the covenants and obligations thereunder shall be performed by Purchaser in the name of Seller and its Subsidiaries and all benefits and obligations existing thereunder shall be for Purchaser’s account. Seller and its Subsidiaries shall take or cause to be taken at Purchaser’s expense such actions in its name or otherwise as Purchaser may reasonably request so as to provide Purchaser with the benefits of the Nonassignable Assets and to effect collection of money or other consideration that becomes due and payable under the Nonassignable Assets, and Seller and its Subsidiaries shall promptly pay over to Purchaser all money or other consideration received by any of them in respect of all Nonassignable Assets. From and after the Closing, Seller, on its own behalf and on behalf of its Subsidiaries, authorizes Purchaser, to the extent permitted by applicable Law and the terms of the Nonassignable Assets, at Purchaser’s expense, to perform all the obligations and receive all the benefits of Seller and its Subsidiaries under the Nonassignable Assets. If after the Closing any Nonassignable Asset becomes assignable (either because consent for the assignment thereof is obtained or otherwise), Seller shall promptly notify Purchaser and transfer and assign such previously Nonassignable Asset to Purchaser or a Subsidiary of Purchaser, as Purchaser shall designate.
          (d) From time to time following the Closing, Seller shall, and shall cause its Subsidiaries to, make available to Purchaser such non-confidential data in personnel records of Continuing Employees, to the extent (if any) such records have not theretofore been delivered to Purchaser as part of the Purchased Assets, as is reasonably necessary for Purchaser to transition such employees into Purchaser’s records; provided, however, that Seller shall have no obligation to make available any records the disclosure of which is prohibited by Law.
          (e) From time to time following the Closing, if Seller or any of its Subsidiaries receives any payment for products sold or shipped by Purchaser or any of its Subsidiaries or that is otherwise due or owing to Purchaser or any of its Subsidiaries, Seller shall as promptly as practicable (and in any event within ten (10) Business Days after discovery thereof) forward or remit such payment, or pay the amount of such payment, to Purchaser. From time to time following the Closing, if Purchaser or any of its Subsidiaries receives any payment for products sold or shipped by Seller or any of its Subsidiaries or that is otherwise due or owing to Seller or any of its Subsidiaries, Purchaser shall as promptly as practicable (and in any event within ten (10) Business Days after discovery thereof) forward or remit such payment, or pay the amount of such payment, to Seller.

     1.8 Bulk Sales Laws. Seller shall indemnify and hold harmless Purchaser and its Subsidiaries from and against any Liability associated with non-compliance with or under the Bulk Sales Act (Ontario) or any other “bulk sale,” “bulk transfer” or similar Law of any other jurisdiction that may be applicable to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements. Subject to such indemnification, Purchaser hereby waives compliance by Seller and its Subsidiaries with the requirements and provisions of any “bulk transfer” Laws of any jurisdiction that may otherwise be applicable with respect to the sale of any or all of the Purchased Assets to Purchaser and its designated Subsidiaries.
     1.9 Purchase Price Allocation.
          (a) Purchaser and BIL shall use commercially reasonable efforts to prepare and deliver to Seller, within ninety (90) calendar days after the Closing Date, copies of Form 8594 under the Internal Revenue Code (and any comparable form under any applicable Tax Law of any other jurisdiction where any of the Purchased Assets are situated, by the date required by applicable Law) and any required exhibits thereto (the “Asset Acquisition Statement”) allocating the Purchase Price and the Assumed Liabilities among the Purchased Assets. Seller shall provide such cooperation to Purchaser and BIL as may be required for the preparation of such forms and as Purchaser and BIL may reasonably request. Thereafter Purchaser and BIL shall prepare and deliver to Seller from time to time revised copies of the Asset Acquisition Statement (the “Revised Statements”) so as to report any matters in the Asset Acquisition Statement that require revision as a result of any adjustment to the Purchase Price pursuant to this Agreement. If Seller disputes any calculation in the Asset Acquisition Statement or Revised Statements (as the case may be), Seller shall deliver written notice of its objection to Purchaser within ten (10) calendar days after delivery by Purchaser and BIL of the applicable Asset Acquisition Statement or Revised Statement to Seller, specifying in reasonable detail the items and amounts in dispute and the grounds for dispute. Seller, Purchaser and BIL shall promptly seek in good faith to resolve amicably such dispute within ten (10) calendar days, and if amicable resolution is not reached, either Party may refer the matter for determination to an Accountant, whose determination shall be final and binding. The fees and expenses of the Accountant shall be borne by the non-prevailing Party in such dispute.
          (b) The final allocation of the Purchase Price shall be final and binding upon the parties for all purposes, including the filing of all Tax Returns or other returns and the preparation of all financial statements and other documents and records, and the Purchase Price for the Purchased Assets shall be allocated in accordance with the Asset Acquisition Statement or, if applicable, the last Revised Statement, provided by Purchaser or BIL (as applicable) to Seller (or, if applicable, the Accountant’s determination), and all Tax Returns and reports filed by Purchaser, BIL and Seller shall be prepared consistently with such allocation, unless otherwise required pursuant to a “determination” within the meaning of Section 1313(a) of the Internal Revenue Code. The parties shall make jointly the necessary elections and execute and file, within the prescribed delays, the prescribed election forms and any other documents required to give effect to the foregoing and shall also prepare and file all of their respective Tax Returns in a manner consistent with such elections.
          (c) Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent that the Laws of any jurisdiction require that the portion of the Purchase Price allocated to the Purchased Assets

-12-


 

located in such jurisdiction be fixed and determined at or prior to the Effective Time (or within any time period after the Effective Time that is shorter than the time period set forth in this Section 1.9(a)), Purchaser, BIL and Seller shall agree to the allocation of such portion prior to the Closing and shall execute and deliver at the Closing such documentation as may be required by (or sufficient under) applicable Law to memorialize and report such allocation. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Purchaser, BIL and Seller shall use commercially reasonable efforts to agree to the allocation of that portion of the Purchase Price allocated to the Purchased Assets located in each jurisdiction other than the United States and Canada at the Closing in connection with the form of Bill of Sale or local asset purchase agreement (if any) applicable to each such jurisdiction.
ARTICLE 2.
REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF
SELLER
     Seller hereby makes the following representations and warranties to Purchaser, except as otherwise set forth in the disclosure schedule and schedule of exceptions delivered by Seller herewith and dated as of the date hereof (the “Seller Disclosure Schedule”). The parties hereto agree that any reference in a particular section or subsection of the Seller Disclosure Schedule shall only be deemed to be an exception to (or, as applicable, a disclosure for purposes of) the representations and warranties contained in the corresponding section and subsection of this Agreement and shall not be deemed to be an exception to (or, as applicable, a disclosure for purposes of) any other representation and warranty contained in this Agreement, unless the relevance of that reference as an exception to (or a disclosure for purposes of) such other representation and warranty is readily apparent from the face of such disclosure to a Person who has read only that reference and such other representation and warranty and Seller has used commercially reasonable efforts to provide express cross-references where applicable.
     2.1 Organization and Qualification. Seller is a corporation duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the Laws of the State of Delaware, and has full corporate power and authority to conduct the Business as presently conducted and to own, use, license and lease the Assets and Properties of the Business. Seller is duly qualified, licensed or admitted to do business and is in good standing as a foreign corporation in each jurisdiction in which such qualification, licensing or admission is necessary for the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements, and in each case where the absence of which would not be reasonably likely to materially interfere with the operation of the Business or the Purchased Assets, or otherwise subject the Business or the Purchased Assets to Liability for violation of Law. Each Subsidiary of Seller that holds any of the Purchased Assets, each of which set forth in Section 2.1 of the Seller Disclosure Schedule, is a corporation duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the Laws of its jurisdiction of incorporation, as set forth in Section 2.1 of the Seller Disclosure Schedule, and has full corporate power and authority to conduct the Business as presently conducted and to own, use, license and lease its Assets and Properties. Each such Seller Subsidiary is duly qualified, licensed or admitted to do business and is in good standing as a foreign corporation in each jurisdiction in which the ownership, use, licensing or leasing of the Purchased Assets held by it, or the conduct of the portion of the Business conducted by it, makes such qualification, licensing or admission necessary, except for such qualifications, licenses or admissions the absence of which would not have a Business Material Adverse Effect.

     2.2 Authority Relative to this Agreement. Seller has full corporate power and corporate authority to execute and deliver this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements to which Seller is a party, to perform its obligations hereunder and thereunder and to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby. The board of directors of Seller (and, to the extent required by applicable Law or the organizational documents of each Subsidiary of Seller transferring any Assets and Properties pursuant to this Agreement or an Ancillary Agreement, each such Subsidiary of Seller and its shareholders) have approved this Agreement and the execution and delivery by Seller and each of its Subsidiaries of this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements to which Seller or such Subsidiary is a party and the consummation by Seller and its Subsidiaries of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby, and the performance by Seller and its Subsidiaries of its and their obligations hereunder and thereunder, have been duly and validly authorized by all necessary corporate action by Seller and such Subsidiary, as applicable, and no other action on the part of Seller or any of its Subsidiaries is required to authorize the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements to which Seller or any of its Subsidiaries is a party and the consummation by Seller and its Subsidiaries of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby. This Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements to which Seller or any of its Subsidiaries is a party have been or will be, as applicable, duly and validly executed and delivered by Seller or such Subsidiary, as applicable, and, assuming the due authorization, execution and delivery hereof (and, in the case of the Ancillary Agreements to which Purchaser or any of its Subsidiaries is a party, thereof) by Purchaser or its applicable Subsidiary, each constitutes or will constitute, as applicable, a legal, valid and binding obligation of Seller or such Subsidiary enforceable against Seller or such Subsidiary in accordance with its respective terms, except as the enforceability thereof may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, fraudulent conveyance, reorganization, moratorium or other similar Laws relating to the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally and by general principles of equity. Seller has the power and authority to cause each of its applicable Subsidiaries to comply with the obligations contemplated in this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements and to perform the transactions contemplated to be performed by such Subsidiaries pursuant to this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements.
     2.3 Title to and Sufficiency of Purchased Assets. Seller and its Subsidiaries own, are in possession of, and have good title to each of the Purchased Assets and each of the Licensed IP Assets that they purport to own and valid leasehold interests in each of the Purchased Assets that they purport to lease, good title or valid license rights to each of the Licensed IP Assets that they purport to license, and valid rights under Contract with respect to the Purchased Assets that they purport to hold (or that arise) under Contracts, in each case free and clear of all Liens other than Permitted Exceptions and non-exclusive Licenses granted to customers and partners in the ordinary course of business consistent with past practice. The Purchased Assets, together with the Licensed IP Assets, constitute all of the material Assets and Properties used or held for use by Seller and its Subsidiaries in the Business and all of the Assets and Properties required for Purchaser to conduct the Business immediately after the Closing Date without interruption in the ordinary course of business as it has heretofore been conducted by Seller without giving effect to any changes in the conduct of the Business by Purchaser and its Subsidiaries. Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that the foregoing is not intended by either Party to address issues of

-14-


 

infringement of third-party Intellectual Property Rights, which are addressed in Section 2.11 below. The Purchased Technology includes, in the aggregate, all material Technology that is exclusively related to the Business. Upon execution and delivery by Seller to Purchaser of the instruments of sale, assignment, transfer and conveyance referred to in Section 1.1, Purchaser will become the true and lawful owner of, and will receive good title to, the Purchased Assets, free and clear of all Liens other than Liens (if any) arising solely on account of Purchaser’s actions or omissions and other than licenses to which any of the Purchased IP Assets may be subject, as disclosed in Section 2.11(d)(i) of the Seller Disclosure Schedule. The Asset Schedules accurately set forth, for each material Purchased Asset, the location and whether such asset is owned by Seller or a Subsidiary of Seller, and, if owned by a Subsidiary, the identity and jurisdiction of organization of such Subsidiary. Schedules 10.1(CBP), 10.1(PBP) and 10.1(RBP), taken in the aggregate, set forth a true, correct and complete list of all of the past and present products commercialized, or products currently planned to be designed or developed for commercialization, by Seller or its Subsidiaries in the Purchaser Field.
     2.4 No Conflicts. The execution and delivery by Seller of this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements to which Seller is a party do not, and Seller’s and its Subsidiaries’ performance of (or compliance with) their obligations under this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby do not and will not:

          (b) subject to (i) such filings as may be required under applicable state or federal securities Laws, and (ii) the making of such filings (if any) as may be required under the Competition Act (Canada), the Investment Canada Act, or antitrust, notification, merger control, and similar Laws of other jurisdictions, and the receipt of approvals and/or the expiration or early termination of any applicable waiting period thereunder or therefrom, conflict with or result in a violation or breach of any Law applicable to Seller or any of its Subsidiaries or any of its or their Assets or Properties;
          (c) subject to obtaining the consents and Approvals, making the filings and giving the notices set forth in Section 2.4(b), if any, conflict in any material respect with or result in a violation or breach, in any material respect, of any Law applicable to Seller or any of its Subsidiaries, the Business or any of the Purchased Assets; or

In addition to the foregoing, if (after this Agreement is signed and delivered by Seller and prior to the Closing or the earlier termination of this Agreement in accordance with Section 8.1) Seller or any of its Representatives receive any Competing Proposal or Inquiry, Seller shall immediately notify Purchaser thereof and provide Purchaser with the details thereof, including the identity of the Person or Persons making such Competing Proposal or Inquiry, and shall keep Purchaser fully informed on a current basis of the status and details of such Competing Proposal or Inquiry and of any modifications to the terms thereof, in each case to the extent not prohibited by a confidentiality, nondisclosure or other agreement then in effect and entered into prior to the date hereof; provided, however, that this provision shall not in any way be deemed to limit the obligations of Seller and its Representatives set forth in the previous sentence.
          (c) Each of Seller and Purchaser acknowledge that this Section 4.2 was a significant inducement for Purchaser to enter into this Agreement, and that the absence of such provision would have resulted in either (i) a material reduction in the consideration to be paid by Purchaser pursuant to this Agreement or (ii) a failure to induce Purchaser to enter into this Agreement.

In no event shall Purchaser be responsible for any Income Taxes incurred by Seller or any of its Subsidiaries regardless of when such Taxes are due or payable. In the case of any Taxes that are imposed on a periodic basis and are payable for a Tax period that includes (but does not end at) the Effective Time, the portion of such Tax that relates to the portion of such Tax period ending at the Effective Time shall (i) in the case of any Taxes other than Taxes based upon or related to income or receipts (other than Income Taxes resulting from the sale of the Business and the Purchased Assets), be deemed to be the amount of such Tax for the entire Tax period multiplied by a fraction the numerator of which is the number of days in the Tax period ending on (and including) the Closing Date and the denominator of which is the number of days in the entire Tax period, and (ii) in the case of any Tax based upon or related to income or receipts, be deemed equal to the amount which would by payable if the relevant Tax period ended on (and included) the Closing Date. Seller shall be entitled to any refunds (including any interest paid thereon) or credits of Taxes with respect to the Business attributable to taxable periods (or portions thereof) ending prior to the Effective Time. Purchaser shall be entitled to any refunds (including any interest paid thereon) or credits of Taxes with respect to the Business attributable to taxable periods (or portions thereof) beginning at or after the Effective Time.

-43-


 

          (ii) Notwithstanding the provisions of clause (i) of this Section 5.6(c), Purchaser shall be responsible for any “goods and services taxes” (but not Ontario retail sales taxes, which shall be governed by clause (i) of this Section 5.6(c)) applicable to the tangible Purchased Assets transferred from any Canadian Subsidiary of Seller to any Canadian Subsidiary of Purchaser and shall pay the same to Seller on the Closing Date for remittance (which Seller shall promptly thereafter remit) to the applicable Taxing Authority, and the allocation set forth in clause (i) of this Section 5.6(c) shall not apply to such Taxes; provided, however, that to the extent the aggregate amount of “goods and services taxes” paid by Purchaser and its Subsidiaries pursuant to this clause (ii) exceeds the aggregate amount of refund or credit against any future Tax Liability actually received by Purchaser and its Subsidiaries in respect of such “goods and services taxes”, such unrefunded or uncredited excess shall count toward the satisfaction of Purchaser’s responsibility for the first three hundred thousand dollars ($300,000) of aggregate Taxes, fees and charges under clause (i) of this Section 5.6(c) and toward the determination of the obligation of Seller and its Subsidiaries with respect to amounts in excess of such three hundred thousand dollar ($300,000) amount under such clause (i).
          (iii) The Party that is responsible (or whose Subsidiary is responsible) for such Taxes under applicable Law shall file (or cause its applicable Subsidiary to file) all necessary documents (including all Tax Returns) with respect to all such Taxes in a timely manner. To the extent that any Tax described in Section 5.6(c)(i) is paid or required by Law to be paid by Purchaser or any of its Subsidiaries, Seller shall pay or reimburse Purchaser for such Tax upon notice from Purchaser of the amount of such Tax, to the extent that the amount of such Tax, when added to the other Taxes, fees and charges paid by Purchaser pursuant to Section 5.6(c)(i) plus any such unrefunded or uncredited “goods and services taxes” paid by Purchaser pursuant to Section 5.6(c)(ii), exceeds three hundred thousand dollars ($300,000).
          (d) Each Party shall timely and duly prepare and cause to be filed, at its own expense, all Tax Returns and other documentation with respect to all Taxes subject to Section 5.6 that are required by Law to be filed by such Party, and shall timely pay to the relevant Taxing Authority all such Taxes that are required to be paid by such Party (subject to such reimbursement from the other Party as provided for herein).
          (e) Seller shall be responsible for and shall pay or cause to be paid any Liability of Seller or any of its Subsidiaries for the Taxes of any other Person arising under Reg. §1.1502-6 (or any similar provision of state, local, or foreign law) or as a result of an express or implied obligation to indemnify such Person, including pursuant to a Tax sharing or allocation agreement.
          (f) Seller and Purchaser shall in a timely fashion jointly make an election to have subsection 20(24) of the ITA apply in respect of amounts paid for the undertaking of future obligations by Purchaser hereunder and shall file such election with the Canada Revenue Agency with their respective Tax Returns for their respective taxation years that include the date hereof.

          (g) On the Closing Date, or as soon thereafter as possible, Seller shall deliver to Purchaser, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Purchaser, evidence that all Taxes required to be paid by Seller under the Retail Sales Tax Act (Ontario) have been paid; provided, that, in the case of the Retail Sales Tax Act (Ontario), the delivery of a certificate issued under Section 6 of that Act which covers all periods up to and including the Effective Time shall constitute satisfactory evidence for the purposes of the Taxes required to be paid under that Act.
     5.7 Employment.
          (a) Continuing Employees. Except in the case of EU Transferring Employees, Purchaser shall have the right to recruit, make offers of post-Closing employment with Purchaser and its Subsidiaries to, and to employ (or cause a Subsidiary of Purchaser to employ) (following the Closing) such Business Employees as Purchaser shall designate in their sole discretion, and Seller shall (and shall cause its Subsidiaries to) cooperate with and facilitate Purchaser’s review of and contacts with Business Employees for possible post-Closing employment; provided, that Purchaser shall make offers of post-Closing employment to substantially all (which in no event shall be less than ninety-five percent (95%) of the employees identified or described in Schedule 5.7(a)). Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Seller shall (and shall cause its Subsidiaries to) (i) provide Purchaser and its Representatives with access to Business Employees who wish to meet with Purchaser during normal business hours for the purpose of conducting meetings and interviews and (ii) provide prompt written notice to Purchaser of any Business Employees who notify Seller or any of its Subsidiaries that such Business Employee (A) intends to terminate, or terminates, his or her employment with Seller or its Subsidiaries (as applicable) except in connection with such employee’s acceptance of employment with Purchaser or its Subsidiaries (as applicable) or (B) intends to not accept Purchaser’s offer of employment or intends to accept Purchaser’s offer of employment and subsequently terminate such employment after the Effective Time. Prior to the Closing, any personal information (as defined by applicable privacy Laws) about Business Employees which is disclosed to Purchaser by Seller for the purposes contemplated in this Section 5.7(a) or for any other purposes contemplated by this Agreement, shall be held by Purchaser in strict confidence and shall not be used, disclosed or retained by Purchaser for any other purposes, and shall otherwise be handled by Purchaser in compliance with applicable privacy Laws. Promptly following the execution and delivery of this Agreement, and in any event no later than seven (7) calendar days (or such longer period as may be required by applicable Law) prior to the Closing, Purchaser shall deliver, in writing, an offer of employment to the Business Employees identified or described in Schedule 5.7(a), such employment to commence on the day immediately following the Closing, subject to Purchaser’s standard conditions for employees in each applicable jurisdiction (the employees accepting such offers of employment, together with the EU Continuing Employees, being referred to herein as the “Continuing Employees”). The terms offered to each such Business Employee will be on terms that are not less favorable, in the aggregate, for each such Business Employee, than the terms applicable to such employee summarized in a confidential letter delivered by Purchaser to Seller concurrently with the execution and delivery of this Agreement, it being understood that the content of such letter shall be subject to applicable privacy Laws and shall be kept strictly confidential by Seller. Purchaser shall deliver to Seller a preliminary schedule of the names of the Continuing Employees, to the extent then known by Purchaser, no later than two (2) calendar days prior to the Closing, and a revised final schedule of the names of the Continuing Employees promptly following the

-45-


 

Closing. Such offers will, where permitted by Law, be on an “at will” basis and otherwise will offer compensation packages commensurate with each Continuing Employee’s experience and proposed title and position with Purchaser. Purchaser and Seller shall abide by any local or country-specific notification or consultation requirements with respect to Continuing Employees and shall use their commercially reasonable efforts to cause the applicable Business Employees to accept such offers and to consent to any changes in terms of employment. Seller shall provide Purchaser with reasonable advance notice of any proposed written communication to or with Continuing Employees regarding the effects of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement on the Continuing Employees and reasonable opportunity to review and comment on such communications. Seller hereby consents to the hiring by Purchaser or a Subsidiary of Purchaser of the Continuing Employees and waives, with respect to the employment by Purchaser or a Subsidiary of Purchaser of the Continuing Employees, any claims or rights that Seller or any Subsidiary may have against Purchaser or any of its Subsidiaries, against any of its or their Representatives or against any Continuing Employee hired by Purchaser under any non-competition, confidentiality or employment agreement, or otherwise under any applicable Law, as a result of Purchaser’s employment of such Continuing Employee; provided, however, that the foregoing shall not constitute a waiver of any claim or right that Seller or any of its Subsidiaries may have against any such Continuing Employee under any such confidentiality agreement, or against Purchaser or any of its Subsidiaries or their Representatives pursuant to the confidentiality provisions of this Agreement or the Ancillary Agreements, as a result of the unauthorized disclosure (in violation of such agreement) of confidential information not related to the Business, the Purchased Assets or the Assumed Liabilities.
          (b) Excluded Employees. Any Business Employee who is not offered employment by Purchaser prior to Closing or who does not accept an offer of employment by Purchaser, in each case pursuant to Section 5.7(a), and who is not an EU Transferring Employee, is hereinafter referred to as a “Non-transferring Employee.” Seller shall indemnify and hold Purchaser and its Affiliates harmless with respect to all Liabilities relating to any Non-transferring Employee, including, (i) any employment-related liability, (ii) any liability relating to, arising under or in connection with any Seller Benefit Plan, including any liability under COBRA, whether arising prior to, on or after the Closing Date, and (iii) any liability under WARN or similar applicable state, local or foreign Laws. Purchaser shall have no liability or responsibility with respect to any Non-transferring Employee. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Purchaser and its Affiliates shall have no liability for any severance payment that any Non-transferring Employee may be entitled to receive in the event of termination of such individual’s employment with Seller or any Seller’s Subsidiaries.
          (c) Termination of Certain Employees. Prior to the Effective Time, and except in the case of EU Transferring Employees, Seller and Purchaser shall use commercially reasonable efforts (i) to obtain the voluntary consent of a Continuing Employee to resign his or her employment from Seller (or the applicable Subsidiary of Seller) and to become employed by Purchaser (or the applicable Subsidiary of Purchaser) or (ii) to obtain the voluntary consent of a Continuing Employee to transfer his or her employment to Purchaser (or the applicable Subsidiary of Purchaser) or (iii) to enter into an agreement with a Continuing Employee by which Purchaser assumes the material provisions of such Continuing Employee’s employment agreement, the determination of which shall be established by Seller and Purchaser based on applicable local Laws and standard local practice to minimize severance payments upon the

-46-


 

transfer of or resignation and immediate rehiring of Continuing Employees, as applicable, on the Closing Date. With respect to Business Employees located in jurisdictions where local employment Laws may be argued to provide for an automatic transfer of such Business Employees’ employment to Purchaser upon consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, or to provide such Business Employees with a right to continuation of employment or to continuation of current compensation and benefits, excluding EU Transferring Employees, Seller shall use commercially reasonable efforts to procure such resignations, waivers, releases and agreements as may be required to permit the employment by Purchaser and its Subsidiaries of the Business Employees listed in Schedule 5.7(a) (and no other employees of Seller and its Subsidiaries) and their employment by Purchaser and its Subsidiaries on the terms offered by Purchaser and its Subsidiaries. Subject to applicable Laws, on and after the Closing Date, Purchaser shall have the right to dismiss any or all Continuing Employees at any time, with or without cause, and to change the terms and conditions of their employment (including compensation and employee benefits provided to them).
          (d) Employee Benefits.
               (i) Accrued Vacation. Purchaser shall give each Continuing Employee credit for years of service with Seller for purposes of calculating such Continuing Employee’s vacation accrual rate with Purchaser. For Continuing Employees located in all jurisdictions other than India, the United States, and the United Kingdom, Purchaser shall permit each Continuing Employee to carry over to Purchaser any vacation time accrued but unused with Seller, up to a maximum of fifty percent (50%) of such Continuing Employee’s annual vacation accrual rate with Purchaser, and Seller shall pay to such Continuing Employee the remainder of any accrued but unused vacation time. For Continuing Employees located in India, on the Closing Date Seller shall pay each Continuing Employee for all accrued but unused vacation time through the Closing Date. For Continuing Employees located in the United States, on the Closing Date Seller shall pay each Continuing Employee for all accrued but unused vacation time through the Closing Date, unless the Continuing Employee consents to the partial payout and carryover described in the first sentence of this Section 5.7(d)(i). For Continuing Employees located in the United Kingdom, all Continuing Employees shall carry over to Purchaser all accrued and unused vacation time in accordance with applicable Law. The Purchase Price shall be reduced by an amount equal to the value of all vacation time carried over by Continuing Employees to Purchaser, calculated on the basis of each Continuing Employee’s base compensation rate as in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time (or on such other basis, if higher, as Seller actually uses in calculating the payments it makes or is required to make to Continuing Employees pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 5.7(d)(i)). At least two (2) Business Days before the Closing Date, Seller shall deliver to Purchaser a certificate of Seller’s chief financial officer setting forth the amount of vacation time that will have accrued through (and including) the Closing Date for each Business Employee, the dollar amount of each such employee’s salary (or hourly wage rate), and the resulting value of each such employee’s accrued vacation time.
               (ii) Vesting of Seller Employee Benefit Plan Benefits. Effective as of the Closing Date, Seller shall cause the tax-qualified pension and 401(k) plans in which Continuing Employees were eligible to participate immediately prior to the Closing Date to fully vest such employees’ accrued benefit through the Closing Date thereunder.

-47-


 

               (iii) Bonuses. For Continuing Employees located in China and Taiwan who are eligible (pursuant to their existing employment terms) to receive a bonus equal to one (1) month or two (2) months (as applicable) of such Continuing Employee’s salary (the “Month Bonus”), in lieu of Seller paying the accrued and unpaid amount of such Month Bonus as of the Closing Date (the “Accrued Bonus Amount”) on the Closing Date, Purchaser shall carry over the Accrued Bonus Amount and pay the applicable Accrued Bonus Amount to the Continuing Employee in accordance with such Continuing Employee’s existing employment terms. The Purchase Price shall be reduced by an amount equal to the aggregate Accrued Bonus Amount for all applicable Continuing Employees. At least two (2) Business Days before the Closing Date, Seller shall deliver to Purchaser a certificate of Seller’s chief financial officer setting forth the aggregate amount of the Accrued Bonus Amount for each Continuing Employee.
          (e) EU Business Employees.
               (i) The provisions of Sections 5.7(a), (b) and (c), with the exception of the definition of “Continuing Employees” insofar as it is used in any other sections of this Agreement, shall not apply to EU Transferring Employees.
               (ii) Seller and Purchaser acknowledge and agree that the contracts of employment between Seller, or any of its Subsidiaries, and each of the EU Transferring Employees shall have effect from the Effective Time as if originally made between Purchaser, or one of its designated Affiliates, and the applicable EU Business Employee pursuant to the operation of the EU Transfer Regulations in the applicable Member State in relation to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.
               (iii) In the event that the contract of employment between Seller, or any of its Subsidiaries, and any UK Employee does not have effect from the Effective Time as if originally made between Purchaser or one of its designated Affiliates, and the applicable UK Employee pursuant to the operation of the EU Transfer Regulations in the United Kingdom in relation to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, the provisions of Sections 5.7(a), (b), (c) and (d) shall apply in relation to those UK Employees whose contracts of employment do not transfer, provided that the various time limits stated in Sections 5.7(a), (b), (c), and (d) shall not apply and each Party shall be obliged to use its commercially reasonable efforts to comply with its respective obligations without any unreasonable delay following that Party becoming aware that the contract of employment of the relevant UK Employee did not transfer pursuant to the operation of the EU Transfer Regulations in the UK at the Effective Time.
               (iv) Notwithstanding paragraphs (i) and (ii) of this Section 5.7(e), with regard to the French EU Business Employee, Purchaser (or its appropriate Subsidiary) shall offer to such French EU Business Employee equivalent contractual terms and conditions of employment as those enjoyed by such French EU Business Employee immediately before such offer is made. Such offer shall be valid for at least six (6) weeks. Purchaser (or its appropriate Subsidiary) shall present the offer simultaneously to the French EU Business Employee and Seller.

-48-


 

               (v) If the contract of employment of any person who is employed by Seller or any of its Affiliates or by any contractor, sub-contractor or agent of Seller or any of its Affiliates in the United Kingdom, but who is not a UK Employee, has effect as if originally made between Purchaser or any of its Affiliates and the applicable person pursuant to the operation of the EU Transfer Regulations in the United Kingdom in relation to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, Purchaser (or the applicable Affiliate of Purchaser) may, within fourteen (14) calendar days of becoming aware of such effect, terminate the contract of employment of each such relevant person. If: (A) Purchaser (or an Affiliate of Purchaser) has notified Seller in advance of the dismissal, (B) Purchaser (or the applicable Affiliate of Purchaser) has used reasonable endeavors to comply with the three-step dismissal procedure set out in Part 1 of Schedule 1 of the Employment Act 2002, (C) the dismissal is not by reason of, or connected to, a form of discrimination prohibited by law in the United Kingdom, and (D) the dismissal occurs within the stated fourteen (14) calendar day period, even if the dismissal procedure referred to above has not been completed by that stage, then Seller agrees to indemnify Purchaser and its Affiliates against any and all Liabilities and Losses arising from, or connected with, any and all such terminations and against any and all reasonable sums payable to, or in respect of, the applicable person in respect of his employment up to, and including, the date upon which his employment is so terminated.
               (vi) Prior to the Closing Date, Seller and Purchaser shall jointly deliver to each EU Transferring Employee a notice (in a form agreed by Seller and Purchaser) to communicate to each such EU Transferring Employee that his or her contract of employment shall have continuing effect after the Closing Date in the manner specified in Section 5.7(e)(ii). Notwithstanding the foregoing in this paragraph, with regard to the French EU Business Employee, Purchaser (or its appropriate Subsidiary) shall make an offer of employment as specified in Section 5.7(e)(iv), at least six (6) weeks prior to Closing Date.
               (vii) All payments, costs, expenses and charges relating to each EU Continuing Employee (“Charges”) shall be apportioned on a time-basis so that the Charges accruing in, and/or payable in relation to, the period prior to the Effective Time shall be borne and discharged by Seller and the Charges accruing in, and/or payable in relation to, the period commencing from the Effective Time shall be borne and discharged by Purchaser.
               (viii) Seller shall, at least twenty (20) Business Days prior to the Closing Date, provide to Purchaser the information required to be given with respect to EU Transferring Employees pursuant to the EU Transfer Regulations and copies of all contracts of employment and other agreements relating to EU Transferring Employees. Purchaser will provide Seller as soon as reasonably practicable on request with all information it is required to provide by the EU Transfer Regulations in each applicable jurisdiction so that Seller may comply with its obligations to inform and consult with the EU Business Employees under the EU Transfer Regulations. Notwithstanding the foregoing in this paragraph, with regard to the French EU Business Employee, Seller shall provide to Purchaser a copy of the French EU Business Employee’s contract of employment and other agreements relating to such employee at least seven (7) weeks prior to Closing Date.
               (ix) Seller shall, and shall cause its Subsidiaries to, provide Purchaser and its Representatives with reasonable access to each of the UK Employees and their appropriate representatives (which term shall have the same meaning as it has in the EU Transfer Regulations, as implemented in the United Kingdom), except to the extent that they refuse to meet with Purchaser, during normal business hours for the purpose of conducting meetings (provided always that Seller is present).

          (f) Intellectual Property Rights. Seller and Purchaser shall jointly provide complete and adequate notice to all Business Employees excluding EU Transferring Employees, that their current agreements with Seller or its Affiliates concerning information and inventions and confidentiality while continuing in full force and effect in accordance with their terms shall not apply to their employment relationship with Purchaser, and that those who become employed by Purchaser, excluding EU Transferring Employees, will be required, upon becoming Continuing Employees and as a condition of employment with Purchaser and its Subsidiaries, to sign a new employment agreement containing provisions concerning Intellectual Property Rights and Technology.
          (g) Credit. Subject to the provisions of Section 1.3(b), Section 1.4(f) and Section 1.4(g), and subject further to the terms of individual offer letters, to the extent permitted by applicable Purchaser benefit plans, Purchaser shall give each Continuing Employee credit for prior service with Seller or its Subsidiaries for purposes of eligibility for participation in any employee benefit plan maintained by Purchaser (but not for purposes of benefits vesting or accrual under any defined benefit pension plan and not for purposes of equity incentive grants).
               (i) On each of the first, second and third year anniversaries of the Closing Date, Purchaser shall deliver to Seller a complete and accurate list of (A) each Continuing Employee who is entitled to severance due to a termination of employment with Purchaser or any Affiliate of Purchaser that occurs during the twelve (12), twenty-four (24) and thirty-six (36) months, respectively, following the Closing Date (“Terminated Continuing Employee”), (B) the total severance amount paid or due to each Terminated Continuing Employee, (C) the portion of the total severance amount paid or due to each Terminated Continuing Employee for which Seller is responsible in accordance with Section 1.4(b) and this Section 5.7(g) (provided, however, that with regard to severance due to a termination of employment with Purchaser prior to the last day of the eighteenth (18th) month following the Closing Date, such portion of the total severance amount shall not be more than the severance that such Terminated Continuing Employee would have received if such Terminated Continuing Employee’s employment was terminated immediately prior to the Closing Date; and provided, further, that with regard to severance due to a termination of employment with Purchaser after the eighteenth (18th) month following the Closing Date but on or prior to the last day of the thirty-sixth (36th) month following the Closing Date, such portion of the total severance amount shall not total more than eight million dollars ($8,000,000)), (D) the underlying calculations of the amounts under clauses (B) and (C), and (E) a summary description of the reason that severance is payable (“Severance Liability List”). For purposes of this Section 5.7(g), Seller shall be responsible to Purchaser for an amount equal to the product of (i) the total severance amount paid or due to each Terminated Continuing Employee, multiplied by (ii) a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of months that such Terminated Continuing Employee was employed by Seller, and the denominator of which is the total number of months that such Terminated Continuing Employee was employed by Seller (and/or a Subsidiary of Seller) and Purchaser (and/or a Subsidiary of Purchaser). Notwithstanding anything in the foregoing, Seller shall be responsible for severance of Terminated Continuing Employees solely under the terms of (and shall not exceed the amounts payable under) Seller’s severance plans and programs in

-50-


 

existence as of the Closing Date and under statutory severance obligations in existence as of the Closing Date. Notwithstanding anything in the foregoing to the contrary, in determining the amount of severance for which Seller shall be responsible, the amount of severance payable to Terminated Continuing Employees shall be calculated as if such severance were payable pursuant to the severance plans of Seller and its Subsidiaries in effect on the date hereof (or, if greater, on the Closing Date) and under severance statutes as in effect as of the Closing Date.
               (ii) As soon as practicable, Seller shall review and confirm the accuracy of the Severance Liability List. If Seller disputes the accuracy of the Severance Liability List, Seller shall deliver a written notice (“Severance Liability List Dispute Notice”) to Purchaser before 5 p.m. Pacific Time on the thirtieth (30th) day after the delivery of the Severance Liability List (“Severance Liability List Review Period”).
               (iii) If Seller delivers a Severance Liability List Dispute Notice to Purchaser prior to the expiration of the Severance Liability List Review Period, then Seller and Purchaser shall attempt in good faith to agree upon the accuracy of the Severance Liability List. If Seller and Purchaser are unable to reach agreement on the accuracy of the Severance Liability List within twenty (20) days after the expiration of the Severance Liability List Review Period, either Seller or Purchaser may demand arbitration of the dispute. The dispute shall be resolved by three (3) arbitrators, one selected by Seller, one selected by Purchaser, and the third selected jointly by the two arbitrators previously selected by Seller and Purchaser. The decision of a majority of the three (3) arbitrators as to the accuracy of the Severance Liability List shall be binding and conclusive upon Seller and Purchaser. Such decision shall be written and shall be supported by written findings of fact and conclusions of law regarding the dispute which shall set forth the judgment of the arbitrators.
               (iv) Judgment to enforce the decision rendered by the arbitrators may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any such arbitration shall be held in a location within the Northern District of California under the commercial rules of arbitration then in effect of the American Arbitration Association. Each Party shall pay its own expenses, including attorneys’ fees. The expenses and fees of each arbitrator and the administrative costs of the arbitration and the expenses shall be borne equally by Seller and Purchaser.
          (h) No Third-Party Beneficiary Rights. No provision of this Section 5.7 shall create any third-party beneficiary rights in any Business Employee, or any beneficiary or dependents thereof, including the compensation, terms and conditions of employment and benefits that may be provided to any Continuing Employee or under any employee benefit plan which Purchaser may maintain.
     5.8 Personal Information. Any personal information (as defined by applicable privacy Laws) about Business Employees which is disclosed to Purchaser by Seller for the purposes contemplated by this Agreement (including the employment of such individuals by the Purchaser and its Subsidiaries after the Effective Time), shall be held by Purchaser in confidence and shall not be used, disclosed or retained by Purchaser for any other purposes, and shall otherwise be handled by Purchaser in compliance in all material respects with applicable privacy Laws.

-51-


 

     5.9 Preservation of Records. Seller and Purchaser agree that each of them shall preserve and keep the records held by it or their Affiliates relating to the Business for a period of seven (7) years from the Closing Date and shall make such records and personnel available to the other as may be reasonably required by such Party in connection with, among other things, any insurance claims by, legal proceedings against or governmental investigations of Seller or Purchaser or any of their Affiliates or in order to enable Seller or Purchaser to comply with their respective obligations under this Agreement and each other agreement, document or instrument contemplated hereby or thereby. Notwithstanding anything in this Section 5.9 to the contrary, neither Seller nor Purchaser shall be required to provide access to any information or materials required by Law or by agreements with third parties to be kept confidential. In the case of material protected by the attorney-client privilege or work product immunity, Seller or Purchaser (as the case may be) may, prior to and as a condition of furnishing such material, require the recipient to enter into a reasonably appropriate agreement intended to preserve such privileges and immunities.
     5.10 Non-Competition; Non-Solicitation.
          (a) For a period from the date hereof until the second (2nd) anniversary of the Closing Date, Seller shall not, and Seller shall cause its Affiliates not to, directly or indirectly, own, manage, operate, control or participate in the ownership, management, operation or control of any business, whether in corporate, proprietorship or partnership form or otherwise, engaged in the Purchaser Field (a “Restricted Business”) anywhere in the world. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Seller and its Subsidiaries shall be permitted to acquire a majority equity or other majority ownership interest of a Person whose principal line of business is not a Restricted Business, but which has a division or other operations constituting a Restricted Business (any such division or operations, an “Acquired Competing Interest”), provided that (i) the annual gross sales or revenues from such Restricted Business do not exceed twenty five million dollars ($25,000,000) and in any event such gross sales or revenues from such Restricted Business do not exceed twenty five percent (25%) of the total annual gross sales or revenues of such Person for the last completed fiscal year of such Person, and (ii) Seller shall or shall cause its applicable Subsidiary to take all commercially reasonable steps to sell or otherwise divest the Acquired Competing Interest as soon as reasonably practicable to an unaffiliated Person; and provided further that if Seller and its Subsidiaries have not completed the sale or other divestiture of the Acquired Competing Interest within six (6) months after the acquisition by Seller and its Subsidiaries of the Acquired Competing Interest, then Seller shall immediately cause the operations of the Acquired Competing Interest to be ceased. The parties hereto specifically acknowledge and agree that the remedy at law for any breach of the foregoing will be inadequate and that Purchaser, in addition to any other relief available to it, shall be entitled to temporary and permanent injunctive relief without the necessity of proving actual damage or posting any bond whatsoever.
          (b) For a period from the date hereof to the second (2nd) anniversary of the Closing Date, Seller shall not and shall cause its Affiliates not to (i) cause, solicit, induce or encourage any employee of Seller or any of its Subsidiaries who are or become employees of Purchaser or its Affiliates as a result of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement to leave such employment with Purchaser or its Subsidiaries or (ii) hire, employ or otherwise engage any such individual.

-52-


 

          (c) In addition to and without in any way limiting the obligations and restrictions set forth in Section 5.10(b), Seller agrees that for a period of one (1) year from and after the Effective Time, neither Seller nor any Subsidiary of Seller will, directly or indirectly, solicit to employ any employee of Purchaser or any of its Subsidiaries who was first introduced to Seller or any of its Subsidiaries in connection with (i) the negotiation of this Agreement or (ii) the performance by Purchaser or any of its Subsidiaries of the Transition Services Agreement. The foregoing shall not prohibit or prevent Seller or any of its Subsidiaries from soliciting any employee of Purchaser or any of its Subsidiaries: (A) through general solicitations in newspaper, trade, internet or other advertisements, job fairs or similar methods, (B) through a third-party recruiter, provided that neither Seller nor any of its Subsidiaries provides such third-party recruiter with the name, title or position of any such employee of Purchaser or any of its Subsidiaries obtained in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or the Transition Services Agreement, (C) who first contacts Seller or any of its Subsidiaries on his or her own initiative, (D) who (x) is no longer employed by Purchaser or any of its Subsidiaries, (y) has provided notice of his or her resignation without solicitation by Seller or any of its Subsidiaries or (z) has received written notice from Purchaser or the Subsidiary of Purchaser where he or she is employed of his or her impending termination, or (E) after the date which is three (3) months after the date on which Purchaser enters into an agreement for a sale by Purchaser (whether by sale of stock or assets, or otherwise) of the division, business unit, department or other operational area in which such employee is employed. In the event of any conflict between the provisions of this Section 5.10(c) and Section 5.10(b), Section 5.10(b) shall control.
          (d) Purchaser agrees that for a period of one (1) year from and after the Effective Time, neither Purchaser nor any Subsidiary of Purchaser will, directly or indirectly, solicit to employ any current employee of Seller or any of its Subsidiaries who was first introduced to Purchaser or any of its Subsidiaries in connection with (i) the negotiation of this Agreement or (ii) the performance by Seller or any of its Subsidiaries of the Transition Services Agreement. The foregoing shall not prohibit or prevent Purchaser or any of its Subsidiaries from soliciting any employee of Seller or any of its Subsidiaries: (A) through general solicitations in newspaper, trade, internet or other advertisements, job fairs or similar methods, (B) through a third-party recruiter, provided that neither Purchaser nor any of its Subsidiaries provides such third-party recruiter with the name, title or position of any such employee of Seller or its Subsidiaries obtained in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or the Transition Services Agreement, (C) who first contacts Purchaser or any of its Subsidiaries on his or her own initiative, (D) who (x) is no longer employed by Seller or any of its Subsidiaries, (y) has provided notice of his or her resignation without solicitation by Purchaser or any of its Subsidiaries or (z) has received written notice from Seller or the Subsidiary where he or she is employed of his or her impending termination, or (E) after the date which is three (3) months after the date on which Seller enters into an agreement for a sale by Seller (whether by sale of stock or assets or otherwise) of the division, business unit, department or other operational area in which such employee is employed. The rights and interests of Seller and its Subsidiaries pursuant to this Section 5.10(d) may not be assigned by Seller or its Subsidiaries (by operation of Law or otherwise) without the prior written consent of Purchaser (which consent may be withheld in Purchaser’s sole discretion) and any attempt to assign such rights and interests without consent shall be void.

-53-


 

          (e) The covenants and undertakings contained in this Section 5.10 relate to matters which are of a special, unique and extraordinary character and a violation of any of the terms of this Section 5.10 will cause irreparable injury to the parties, the amount of which will be impossible to estimate or determine and which cannot be adequately compensated. Therefore, each Party agrees that the other Party shall be entitled to an injunction, restraining order or other equitable relief from any court of competent jurisdiction in the event of any breach of this Section 5.10. The rights and remedies provided by this Section 5.10 are cumulative and in addition to any other rights and remedies which Purchaser may have hereunder or at law or in equity. In the event that Purchaser were to seek damages for any breach of this Section 5.10, the portion of the consideration delivered by Purchaser to Seller (or to others at the direction of Seller) hereunder which is attributed by the parties to the foregoing covenant shall not be considered a measure of or limit on such damages.
          (f) Purchaser and Seller intend and agree that (i) the covenants set forth in this Section 5.10 shall be construed as a series of separate covenants, one for each country in the world where the Business (or any portion thereof) is located or conducted, including the United States of America, Canada, India, the People’s Republic of China, Taiwan, Japan, the Republic of Korea, the United Kingdom, and France, and one for each state and province within such countries (including the State of California and the Commonwealths of Massachusetts and Pennsylvania and the Province of Ontario); (ii) if any court of competent jurisdiction in a final nonappealable judgment determines that a specified time period, a specified geographical area, a specified business limitation or any other relevant feature of this Section 5.10 is unreasonable, arbitrary or against public policy, then a lesser time period, geographical area, business limitation or other relevant feature which is determined to be reasonable, not arbitrary and not against public policy may be enforced against the applicable Party; and (iii) if, in any Action or Proceeding, a court shall refuse to enforce any of the separate covenants deemed included in this Section 5.10, even after giving effect to clause (ii), then such unenforceable covenant shall be deemed eliminated from these provisions for the purpose of such Action or Proceeding to the extent necessary to permit the remaining separate covenants to be enforced.
          (g) The parties agree to allocate the aggregate sum of one dollar ($1.00) of the consideration of the Purchased Assets to the agreements, covenants and undertakings contained in Section 5.10 for the purposes of the ITA and the parties shall timely prepare and file a joint election under proposed paragraph 56.4(3)(c) of the ITA (and analogous provincial or territorial tax legislation) in the form of “Election for Restrictive Covenants” attached hereto as Exhibit N, or in such successor form as may be prescribed by the Canada Revenue Agency, which shall be filed in accordance with proposed subsection 56.4(14) of the ITA.
     5.11 Notification of Certain Matters. Seller shall give prompt written notice to Purchaser of (a) the occurrence or non-occurrence of any event, the occurrence or non-occurrence of which is likely to cause any representation or warranty of Seller in this Agreement to be untrue or inaccurate at or prior to the Closing in any material respect and (b) any failure of Seller in any material respect to comply with or satisfy any covenant, condition or agreement to be complied with or satisfied by it hereunder, and Purchaser shall give prompt written notice to Seller of (x) the occurrence or non-occurrence of any event, the occurrence or non-occurrence of which is likely to cause any representation or warranty of Purchaser in this Agreement to be untrue or inaccurate at or prior to the Closing in any material respect and (y) any failure of

-54-


 

Purchaser in any material respect to comply with or satisfy any covenant, condition or agreement to be complied with or satisfied by it hereunder; provided, however, that the delivery of any notice pursuant to this Section 5.11 shall not limit or otherwise affect any remedies available to the Party receiving such notice.
     5.12 Intellectual Property Rights.
          (a) Seller shall give Purchaser prompt written notice of the receipt by Seller or any of its Subsidiaries after the date hereof of any summons, complaint, demand letter, offer of or invitation to seek a license, or other written communication (each an “IP Communication”) claiming, in substance, (a) that any Current Business Product infringes the Intellectual Property Rights or Technology of any other Person, (b) that Seller or any of its Subsidiaries do not own or have the right to exploit any Technology or Intellectual Property Rights required for the Business or any Current Business Product, or (c) that any of the Intellectual Property Rights or Technology, including the Seller IP Assets, presently embodied or proposed to be embodied in any Current Business Product is available for licensing from a potential licensor providing the notice.
          (b) Seller shall give Purchaser prompt written notice of the receipt by Seller or any of any of its Subsidiaries after the date hereof of any IP Communication if Seller determines (or should determine in the exercise of reasonable good faith judgment) that any such IP Communication claims, in substance, (a) that any element or functionality of any Roadmap Product as delivered to Purchaser pursuant to this Agreement would infringe the Intellectual Property Rights or Technology of the Person responsible for the IP Communication or the holder of the Intellectual Property Rights or Technology asserted in the IP Communication (the “Claimant”) (b) that Seller or any of its Subsidiaries do not own or have the right to exploit any Technology or Intellectual Property Rights that Seller planned or required for any Roadmap Product, or (c) that any of the Intellectual Property Rights or Technology of the Claimant presently embodied or proposed to be embodied in any Roadmap Product is available for licensing from the Claimant.
          (c) From and after the execution of this Agreement to the Closing (or the earlier termination of this Agreement pursuant to Section 8.1), Seller shall take commercially reasonable actions (x) to maintain, perfect, preserve or renew the Purchased Registered Intellectual Property Rights, including the payment of any registration, maintenance, renewal fees, annuity fees and Taxes or the filing of any documents, applications or certificates related thereto, and (y) to promptly respond and prepare to respond to all requests, related to the Purchased Registered Intellectual Property Rights, received from any Governmental or Regulatory Authority. At the Closing, Seller shall notify Purchaser of all material actions which must be taken within the one hundred eighty (180) days following the Closing Date and which are necessary to maintain, perfect, preserve or renew the Purchased Registered Intellectual Property Rights, including the payment of any registration, maintenance, renewal fees, annuity fees and Taxes or the filing of any documents, applications or certificates related thereto.
     5.13 Expenses. Whether or not the Closing occurs, except as otherwise expressly provided by this Agreement, all fees and expenses incurred in connection with this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby, including all legal, accounting, financial advisory,

-55-


 

consulting and all other fees and expenses of third parties incurred by a Party in connection with the negotiation and effectuation of the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby, shall be the obligation of the respective Party incurring such fees and expenses, it being understood and agreed, for the avoidance of doubt, that unless otherwise specifically provided in this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement, the Transition Services Agreement shall govern the responsibility for all costs and expenses in connection with the transitional services to be provided pursuant to the Transition Services Agreement and related statements of work attached thereto (in each case on the terms and conditions expressly set forth in such agreement and such statements of work). Except as specifically set forth in the Transition Services Agreement, Purchaser shall be responsible for any costs and expenses incurred in connection with Purchaser’s occupation, integration or acceptance of the Purchased Assets and the Licensed IP Assets, and Seller shall be responsible for any costs and expenses incurred by Seller in connection with its delivery obligations set forth in Section 1.7. Purchaser shall be responsible for the cost of any filing fees under the Canadian Competition Act.
     5.14 Shared Premises. For those Business Real Properties that Seller will continue to occupy during Purchaser’s lease or sublease of a portion thereof, each Party shall use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the business operations of such Party and its Subsidiaries therein will not interfere or limit in any material respect the operation of the other Party and its Subsidiaries in and from such location in compliance with the terms of the Transition Services Agreement and the applicable related statement of work.
     5.15 Certain Agreements Required for Closing. Without limiting the generality of the Parties obligations set forth elsewhere in this Article 5, during the period from the date hereof to the Closing Date, each Party shall (and shall cause their respective Subsidiaries to) finalize, execute and deliver in good faith each of the Foreign Asset Purchase Agreements and Real Property Transfer Agreements and such other documents and instruments, provide such materials and information and take such other actions as the other Party may reasonably request to consummate the transactions contemplated by the Foreign Asset Purchase Agreements and the Real Property Transfer Agreements.
     5.16 Audited 2008 Business Financials. Seller shall use its best efforts to prepare and complete the Audited 2008 Business Financials, and to cause the audit of such financial statements to be completed on or prior to the forty-fifth (45th) calendar day after the Closing Date. If the Audited 2008 Business Financials have not been completed and delivered to Purchaser, but all other closing conditions are satisfied or waived, as applicable, and the Parties effect the Closing pursuant to Section 1.6 of this Agreement, Purchaser shall deposit fifteen million dollars ($15,000,000) of the Purchase Price (the “Withheld Amount”) with the Escrow Agent to be held in escrow (on the terms set forth below and such further terms as Purchaser and Seller may mutually agree). If the Audited 2008 Business Financials are completed and delivered to Purchaser on or prior to the forty-fifth (45th) calendar day after the Closing Date, Purchaser shall cause the Escrow Agent to promptly pay the entire Withheld Amount (including interest with respect thereto) to Seller. If the Audited 2008 Business Financials are completed and delivered more than forty five (45) calendar days after the Closing, the Purchase Price, and the portion of the Withheld Amount required to be paid (or caused to be paid) by Purchaser to Seller, shall be reduced by one million dollars ($1,000,000) (plus any applicable interest with respect thereto) for each additional day or fraction of a day beyond the end of such forty five (45) day period until the completion and delivery to Purchaser of the Audited 2008 Business Financials and Purchaser shall retain such Withheld Amount.

ARTICLE 7.
SURVIVAL OF REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES, COVENANTS AND
AGREEMENTS; ESCROW PROVISIONS
     7.1 Survival of Representations, Warranties, Covenants and Agreements. Notwithstanding any right of Purchaser (whether or not exercised) to investigate the Business, the Purchased Assets or the Assumed Liabilities (whether pursuant to Section 5.1 or otherwise) and notwithstanding any waiver or non-assertion by a Party of any applicable condition to Closing set forth in Article 6 or any termination right set forth in Article 8, each Party shall have the right to rely fully upon the representations, warranties, covenants and agreements of the other Party contained in this Agreement, the Ancillary Agreements and the certificates and instruments delivered in connection herewith or therewith. All of the representations and warranties of Seller and Purchaser contained in this Agreement and contained or incorporated or referred to in the certificates and instruments delivered in connection herewith or therewith shall survive the Closing and continue until 11:59 p.m. California time on the day which is eighteen (18) months after the Closing Date (the “Expiration Date”). Nothing in this Section 7.1 or any other provision of this Agreement (i) shall be construed to limit or otherwise alter the survival of any representation or warranty of any Person in any of the Ancillary Agreements, which shall survive the Closing and continue for the time periods set forth therein (or, if no time period is set forth therein, indefinitely), or (ii) shall be construed to limit or alter the survival of any covenant or agreement of Seller or Purchaser contained in this Agreement or any of the Ancillary Agreements, which shall survive the Closing and continue for the time periods set forth therein (or, if no time period is set forth therein, indefinitely), other than covenants and agreements of Seller and Purchaser which by their terms are to be wholly performed prior to the Closing, which covenants and agreements shall survive until 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time on the Expiration Date.
     7.2 Indemnification; Escrow Provisions.
          (a) Establishment of the Escrow Fund. At the Closing, without any act of Seller or any other Person, the Escrow Amount will be deposited with the Escrow Agent by Purchaser, such deposits to constitute the “Escrow Fund” to be governed by the terms set forth herein and the Escrow Agreement.
          (b) Indemnification; Recourse to the Escrow Fund. Subject to the limitations set forth elsewhere in this Article 7, Seller shall indemnify and hold harmless Purchaser and each of its officers, directors, employees, agents and Affiliates, including each Subsidiary of Purchaser that purchases Purchased Assets pursuant to this Agreement (collectively, the “Purchaser Indemnitees”), and the Escrow Fund shall be available to compensate Purchaser and each of the other Purchaser Indemnitees, for any and all Losses (whether or not involving a Third-Party Claim) paid, incurred, sustained or accrued by Purchaser or any other Purchaser Indemnitee as a result of (i) any breach or violation of, or inaccuracy in, any representation or warranty (either as made on the date hereof or as if made on and as of the Closing Date, other than representations and warranties that by their express terms are made solely as of a specified earlier date, as to which indemnification shall only be available for breaches, violations or inaccuracies as of such specified earlier date), or any breach or violation of any covenant or agreement, made by (or on behalf of) Seller or any of its Subsidiaries in this Agreement or any of the Ancillary Agreements or any certificate, agreement or instrument delivered in connection

-60-


 

herewith or therewith or any claim by any third party alleging, constituting or involving such a breach, violation or inaccuracy, (ii) any of the Excluded Assets or Retained Liabilities, (iii) any matter for which Purchaser or any other Purchaser Indemnitee is entitled to indemnification pursuant to Sections 1.8, 5.5, 5.6, or 5.7, or (iv) any matter referred to in Schedule 7.2(b)(iv); and Purchaser shall indemnify and hold harmless Seller and each of its officers, directors, employees, agents and Affiliates (collectively, the “Seller Indemnitees”) for any and all Losses (whether or not involving a Third-Party Claim) paid, incurred, sustained or accrued by Seller or any other Seller Indemnitee as a result of (x) any breach or violation of, or inaccuracy in, any representation or warranty (either as made on the date hereof or as if made on and as of the Closing Date, other than representations and warranties that by their express terms are made solely as of a specified earlier date, as to which indemnification shall only be available for breaches, violations or inaccuracies as of such specified earlier date), or any breach or violation of any covenant or agreement, made by (or on behalf of) Purchaser in this Agreement or any of the Ancillary Agreements or any certificate, agreement or instrument delivered in connection herewith or therewith or any claim by any third party alleging, constituting or involving such a breach, violation or inaccuracy, or (y) any of the Assumed Liabilities. Purchaser and Seller each acknowledge that such Losses, if any, would relate to unresolved contingencies existing at the Closing, which if resolved at the Closing would have led to a reduction in the Purchase Price.
          (c) Certain Limitations.
               (i) Except as otherwise provided herein, an Indemnified Party may not make any claim for indemnification for Losses in excess of the Cap resulting from the breach or violation of, or inaccuracy in, any representation or warranty contained in this Agreement (or contained, incorporated or referred to in any certificate delivered in connection therewith), and, further, an Indemnified Party may not make any claim for indemnification for any breach or violation of, or inaccuracy in, any representation or warranty unless and until the aggregate Losses paid, incurred, sustained and/or accrued (or anticipated or be paid, incurred, sustained and/or accrued) exceed two hundred fifty thousand dollars ($250,000) (the “Threshold Amount”) (at which time claims may be made and indemnifiable Losses shall be determined without regard to, and without deducting or subtracting, the Threshold Amount). For purposes of this Article 7, all materiality and Business Material Adverse Effect qualifications in the representations and warranties contained in Article 2 or contained, incorporated or referred to in the certificate related thereto delivered pursuant to Section 6.3(c) shall be disregarded for purposes of calculating the amount of such Losses, but shall not be disregarded for purposes of determining whether a breach of any representation or warranty contained in Article 2 (or contained, incorporated or referred to in the certificate delivered pursuant to Section 6.3(c)) has occurred. Neither the Cap nor the Threshold Amount shall apply to claims for indemnification (A) by an Indemnified Party for Losses resulting from fraud or willful breach by the Indemnifying Party or any Person who is or was a director, officer, Affiliate or stockholder of the Indemnifying Party in connection with this Agreement or any of the Ancillary Agreements or any certificate, agreement or instrument delivered in connection herewith or therewith, (B) by Purchaser for Losses resulting from any of the Excluded Assets or Retained Liabilities (in the case of indemnification claims by Purchaser related thereto), (C) by Seller for Losses resulting from any of the Assumed Liabilities (in the case of indemnification claims by Seller related thereto), (D) by Purchaser for any Losses for which Purchaser or any other Purchaser Indemnitee is entitled to indemnification pursuant to Sections 1.8, 5.5, 5.6 or 5.7, (D) by Purchaser for Losses resulting from any

-61-


 

Excepted Matter or (F) by Purchaser for Losses resulting from any of the matters referred to in Schedule 7.2(b)(iv), any and all of which shall be recoverable by the applicable Indemnified Party without respect to the Cap or the Threshold Amount (other than Item 5 under Part II of Schedule 7.2(b)(iv), which shall be subject to the Cap but not the Threshold).
               (ii) In the event of any conflict between the indemnification provisions of this Agreement, on the one hand, and the provisions of the Transition Services Agreement or the related statements of work attached thereto, on the other hand, the provisions of the Transition Services Agreement and the applicable statement of work shall control, but solely with respect to the indemnification for obligations expressly and exclusively established by the Transition Services Agreement and related statements of work attached thereto and not with respect to any other matter or obligation (as to each of which this Agreement shall govern, control and prevail).
               (iii) For Losses that are not subject to the Cap and are not for Excepted Matters as defined in Section 7.2(c)(v), the maximum respective liability of each of Seller and Purchaser under this Article 7 shall be equal to the Purchase Price.
               (iv) To the extent that any Loss that is the subject of a claim for indemnification under this Article 7 is compensated by insurance proceeds paid to an Indemnified Party, such Indemnified Party shall be entitled to indemnification pursuant to this Article 7 only with respect to the amount of Losses that are in excess of the cash proceeds received by such Indemnified Party pursuant to such insurance, after deducting therefrom the expenses incurred by such Indemnified Party in obtaining such proceeds and the amount of any increase in premiums payable by such Indemnified Party as a result of the claims made against such insurance in relation to such matter (“Net Insurance Proceeds”). If such Indemnified Party receives such cash insurance proceeds prior to the time such claim is paid, then the amount payable by the Indemnifying Party pursuant to such claim shall be reduced by the amount of such Net Insurance Proceeds. If such Indemnified Party receives such cash insurance proceeds after such claim is paid, then upon receipt by such Indemnified Party of any cash proceeds pursuant to such insurance with respect to such claim, such Indemnified Party shall repay any portion of such Net Insurance Proceeds which was previously paid by the Indemnifying Party to such the Indemnified Party in satisfaction of such claim.
               (v) Absent fraud or intentional misrepresentation, and other than for Excepted Matters (as defined below), the indemnification provisions contained in this Article 7 are intended to provide the sole and exclusive remedy following the Closing as to all Losses any Indemnified Party may incur arising from or relating to breaches and violations of, and inaccuracies in, the representations and warranties of the Indemnifying Party in this Agreement; provided, that nothing in this Section 7.2(c) or elsewhere in this Agreement shall affect the parties’ rights to specific performance or other equitable remedies with respect to the covenants and agreements in this Agreement, the Intellectual Property License Agreements or any of the other Ancillary Agreements or that are to be performed at or after the Closing, and nothing in this Section 7.2(c) or elsewhere in this Agreement shall be construed to limit Seller’s responsibilities, obligations or liabilities in respect of the Retained Liabilities or Excluded Assets, or Purchaser’s responsibilities, obligations and liabilities in respect of Assumed Liabilities, or either Party’s responsibilities, obligations and liabilities in respect of its respective

-62-


 

covenants, agreements and obligations (whether in this Agreement, in the Intellectual Property License Agreements or in the Transition Services Agreement (except, in the case of the Transition Services Agreement, as set forth in Section 7.2(c)(ii))) to be performed at or after the Closing (each an “Excepted Matter” and collectively, the “Excepted Matters”).
          (d) Escrow Period; Distribution of Escrow Fund upon Termination of Escrow Period. Subject to the following requirements, the Escrow Fund shall be in existence immediately following the Effective Time and shall terminate at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time on the Expiration Date (the period of time from the Effective Time through and including 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time on the Expiration Date is referred to herein as the “Escrow Period”), and all property thereafter remaining in the Escrow Fund shall be distributed as set forth in the last sentence of this Section 7.2(d); provided, however, that the Escrow Period shall not terminate with respect to such amount as may be necessary in the good faith judgment of Purchaser, subject to the objection of Seller and the subsequent arbitration of the matter in the manner as provided in Section 7.2(h), to satisfy any unsatisfied claims under this Section 7.2 concerning facts and circumstances existing prior to the termination of the Escrow Period which claims are specified in any Officer’s Certificate delivered to the Escrow Agent prior to termination of the Escrow Period. Promptly after all such claims, if any, have been resolved, Purchaser and Seller shall cause the Escrow Agent to deliver to Seller the remaining portion of the Escrow Fund not required to satisfy such claims.
          (e) Protection of Escrow Fund; Interest Income.
               (i) Purchaser and Seller shall require the Escrow Agent to hold and safeguard the Escrow Fund during the Escrow Period, to treat such fund as a trust fund in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and to hold and dispose of the Escrow Fund only in accordance with the terms hereof. The Escrow Fund shall be invested only in obligations of (or guaranteed by) the U.S. Government as to principal and interest, or such other investments as Purchaser and Seller shall direct in joint written instructions to the Escrow Agent. Purchaser and Seller agree that in no event shall the Escrow Agent have any liability under the Escrow Agreement for investment losses incurred on any investment or reinvestment made in accordance with the terms of the Escrow Agreement. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Purchaser and Seller agree that the Escrow Agent shall have no liability for any market loss on any investment liquidated prior to maturity in order to make a payment required hereunder.
               (ii) All income derived from the investment of the Escrow Fund (the “Investment Income”) shall be deemed for Tax purposes to constitute (and shall be reported as) income of Seller. Such Investment Income shall be deemed part of the Escrow Fund, subject to claims for indemnification and distributions to Seller or Purchaser, as the case may be, in each case in accordance with this Article 7; provided, however, that Purchaser and Seller agree that twenty percent (20%) of the amount of such Investment Income in each calendar quarter shall automatically be deducted from such income and paid as a distribution by the Escrow Agent to Seller out of the Escrow Fund on the last day of each calendar quarter, without regard to the procedures of Section 7.2(f), (g), or (h). Except for the Investment Income, unless and until distributed to Seller (and then only to the extent distributed to Seller), the Parties agree to treat the Escrow Fund as owned by Purchaser and not received by Seller and to file all Tax Returns on a basis consistent with such treatment.

-63-


 

          (f) Claims for Indemnification; Claims Upon Escrow Fund. Claims for indemnification shall be made by delivery of a certificate signed by any officer of the Indemnified Party to the Indemnifying Party (an “Officer’s Certificate”). Each Officer’s Certificate: (i) shall state, in substance, that the Indemnified Party has paid, incurred, sustained and/or accrued (or, in the case of indemnification claims involving anticipated Losses, that the Indemnified Party anticipates in good faith that it will pay, incur, sustain and/or accrue) Losses, directly or indirectly, as a result of (A) any breach or violation of, or inaccuracy in, any representation or warranty (either as made on the date hereof or as if made on and as of the Closing Date, other than representations and warranties that by their express terms are made solely as of a specified earlier date, as to which the Officer’s Certificate shall state that the Losses are a result of a breach, violation or inaccuracy as of such specified earlier date), or any breach or violation of any covenant or agreement, made by or on behalf of the Indemnifying Party in this Agreement or any of the Ancillary Agreements or any certificate, agreement or instrument delivered by or on behalf of the Indemnifying Party in connection herewith or therewith, or any claim by any third party alleging, constituting or involving such a breach, violation or inaccuracy, (B) any of the Excluded Assets or Retained Liabilities (in the case of indemnification claims by Purchaser related thereto) or any of the Assumed Liabilities (in the case of indemnification claims by Seller related thereto), (C) any other matter for which an Indemnified Party is entitled to indemnification pursuant to this Agreement (including, in the case of Purchaser, Sections 1.8, 5.5, 5.6 or 5.7), or (D) any matter referred to in Schedule 7.2(b)(iv); and (ii) shall specify in reasonable detail the individual items of Loss included in the amount so stated, the date (if known) when each such item of Loss was paid, incurred, sustained and/or accrued (or, in the case of anticipated Losses, the basis for such anticipated Loss), and the general nature of the representation, warranty, agreement, covenant, Excluded Asset, Retained Liability, Assumed Liability, or other matter to which such item of Loss or anticipated Loss is related.
          (g) Objections to Claims. A copy of the Officer’s Certificate shall be delivered to the Indemnifying Party and, in the case of indemnification claims involving a claim against the Escrow Fund, to the Escrow Agent. The Indemnifying Party shall have twenty (20) Business Days after delivery of an Officer’s Certificate in which to object, in whole or in part, to the indemnification claim(s) set forth in the Officer’s Certificate. Objection shall be made by a certificate in writing, signed by an officer of the Indemnifying Party, setting forth in reasonable detail the basis for objection, which shall be delivered to the Indemnified Party (and, the case of indemnification claims involving a claim against the Escrow Fund, to the Escrow Agent) prior to 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time on the last day of such twenty (20) Business Day period. In the case of indemnification claims involving a claim against the Escrow Fund, if compliant objection in writing is made and timely delivered in accordance with the requirements of this Section 7.2(g), Purchaser and Seller agree that the Escrow Agent shall make no delivery to the Indemnified Party of any portion of the Escrow Fund pursuant to Section 7.2(d) unless the Escrow Agent shall have received written authorization from the Indemnifying Party to make such delivery. If compliant objection in writing is not made or is not timely delivered in accordance with the requirements of this Section 7.2(g), Purchaser and Seller shall require the Escrow Agent, as promptly as practicable following the expiration of such twenty (20) Business Day period, to pay to the Indemnified Party, from the Escrow Fund, an amount in cash equal to the amount of Losses claimed against the Escrow Fund in the Officer’s Certificate, in accordance with Section 7.2(f); provided, that where the basis for a claim is that the Indemnified Party anticipates that it will pay, incur, sustain and/or accrue a Loss, no payment will be made from the Escrow Fund for such Loss unless and until such Loss is actually paid, incurred, sustained and/or accrued.

-64-


 

          (h) Resolution of Conflicts; Arbitration.
               (i) If the Indemnifying Party has objected in writing to any claim or claims made in any Officer’s Certificate in accordance with the procedures of Section 7.2(g), the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party shall attempt in good faith to agree upon the rights of the respective parties with respect to each of such claims. If the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party so agree, a memorandum setting forth such agreement shall be prepared and signed by both parties and, in the case of indemnification claims involving a claim against the Escrow Fund, a copy thereof shall be furnished to the Escrow Agent. Purchaser and Seller agree that the Escrow Agent shall be entitled to rely on any such memorandum and to distribute funds from the Escrow Fund in accordance with the terms thereof.
               (ii) If no such agreement is reached after good-faith negotiations, the Indemnified Party (or, in the case of indemnification claims involving a claim against the Escrow Fund, either the Indemnifying Party or the Indemnified Party) may demand arbitration of the dispute. If the amount of the Loss is at issue in a pending Action or Proceeding involving a Third-Party Claim (as defined in Section 7.2(i)), arbitration shall not be commenced until such amount is determined in such Action or Proceeding (whether by verdict, judgment, finding of fact, settlement or other order, stipulation or agreement) or otherwise ascertained, or both parties agree to arbitration. Any dispute regarding a claim for indemnification pursuant to this Article 7 that is reasonably expected to require, for its determination, the application or determination of a substantive issue of patent law, shall, at the request of either Party, be resolved by special confidential arbitration pursuant to the rules set forth in Schedule 7.2(h)(ii). Otherwise, the dispute shall be resolved by three arbitrators, one selected by the Indemnified Party, one selected by the Indemnifying Party, and the third selected jointly by the two arbitrators previously selected by the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party, in accordance with the following provisions and procedures:
                    (A) The arbitrators shall set a limited time period and establish procedures designed to reduce the cost and time for discovery of information relating to any dispute while allowing the parties an opportunity, adequate as determined in the sole judgment of the arbitrators, to discover relevant information from the opposing parties about the subject matter of the dispute.
                    (B) The arbitrators shall rule upon motions to compel, limit or allow discovery as they shall deem appropriate given the nature and extent of the disputed claim. The arbitrators shall also have the authority to impose sanctions, including attorneys’ fees and other costs incurred by the parties, to the same extent as a court of law or equity, if the arbitrators determine that discovery was sought without substantial justification or that discovery was refused or objected to by a Party without substantial justification.
                    (C) The decision of a majority of the three arbitrators as to the validity and amount of any claim in such Officer’s Certificate shall be binding and conclusive upon the parties to this Agreement, and (in the case of indemnification claims involving a claim

-65-


 

against the Escrow Fund), notwithstanding anything in Section 7.2(g), Purchaser and Seller agree that the Escrow Agent shall be entitled to act in accordance with such decision and make or withhold payments out of the Escrow Fund in accordance therewith. Such decision shall be written and shall be supported by written findings of fact and conclusions of law regarding the dispute which shall set forth the award, judgment, decree or order of the arbitrators.
                    (D) Judgment upon any award, judgment, decree or order rendered by the arbitrators may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any such arbitration shall be held in a location within the Northern District of California under the commercial rules of arbitration then in effect of the American Arbitration Association. For purposes of this Section 7.2(h), in any arbitration hereunder in which any claim or the amount thereof stated in the Officer’s Certificate is at issue, the Indemnified Party shall be deemed to be the non-prevailing party if the arbitrators award the Indemnified Party less than one-half of the disputed amount of claimed Losses (exclusive of any amounts not in dispute); otherwise, the Indemnifying Party shall be deemed to be the non-prevailing party. The non-prevailing party to an arbitration shall pay its own expenses, the fees of each arbitrator, the administrative costs of the arbitration and the expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, incurred by the other Party to the arbitration.
               (iii) Confidentiality. In connection with indemnification and arbitration matters pursuant to this Article 7 (including pursuant to Schedule 7.2(h)(ii)), each Party and its Representatives shall hold in strict confidence, shall not use for any purpose other than as permitted under this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement, and shall not disclose to any Person, any nonpublic information from or concerning the other Party, concerning any of the Purchased Assets or Assumed Liabilities (in the case of Seller) or Excluded Assets or Retained Liabilities (in the case of Purchaser) (including information obtained in the course of any arbitration, in discovery pursuant to this Section 7.2(h) or concerning the Escrow Fund or claims for indemnification (including information concerning the assertion, existence, nature, amount, status or outcome of any claim, objection, communication or proceeding under this Article 7). Notwithstanding the foregoing, either Party shall be entitled (i) to make such disclosures as are reasonably required in good faith for the conduct of proceedings for the resolution of disputes relating to indemnification claims, for the enforcement of arbitration awards and judgments related thereto, (ii) to disclose such information to their Representatives and other Persons who reasonably need to know such information for the purpose of enabling an Indemnified Party to assert and pursue an indemnification claim or enabling an Indemnified Party to respond or pursue an objection to an indemnification claim and who have agreed in writing to the same confidentiality obligations and disclosure restrictions applicable to the Parties hereto) and (iii) to make such disclosures as required by Law (including federal and state securities Laws) or by stock exchange rules.
          (i) Third-Party Claims. In the event that an Indemnified Party is served with a complaint, counterclaim or cross-claim in litigation (a “Third-Party Claim”) which the Indemnified Party expects may result in a claim for indemnification under this Article 7 or a demand against the Escrow Fund, the Indemnified Party shall notify the Indemnifying Party of such Third-Party Claim, and the Indemnifying Party shall be entitled, at its own and sole expense, to participate in any defense of such Third-Party Claim. Purchaser shall have the right in its sole and absolute discretion to control the defense of any Third-Party Claim against

-66-


 

Purchaser and Purchaser shall thereafter from time to time promptly provide to Seller copies of all pleadings filed and all Orders issued in such Action or Proceeding relating to such Third-Party Claim, and shall consult in good faith with Seller at reasonable periodic intervals on matters regarding the defense of such Third-Party Claim. Purchaser shall have the right to settle, adjust or compromise any such Third-Party Claim; provided, however, that (i) the amount of any settlement shall only be indemnifiable if made with the consent of the Indemnifying Party or, if made without the consent of the Indemnifying Party, the amount of the settlement was not unreasonably high, does not result in the Indemnifying Party incurring any obligations other than its indemnification obligations hereunder or the settlement was not agreed to in bad faith and without any reasonable basis, (ii) the amount of any settlement shall not be determinative of the amount of Losses (if any) that are subject to indemnification pursuant to this Article 7 and (iii) in no event shall Purchaser settle any claim related to the matter set forth in Item 5 of Part II of Schedule 7.2(b)(iv) without the consent of Seller. If a Third-Party Claim in a pending Action or Proceeding against an Indemnified Party would reasonably be expected to result in a claim for indemnification under this Article 7, then, at the Indemnifying Party’s written request within thirty (30) days after receipt of notice of the institution or pendency of such Action or Proceeding, (A) the Indemnifying Party shall thereafter from time to time promptly provide to the Indemnified Party copies of all pleadings filed and all Orders issued in such Action or Proceeding relating to such Third-Party Claim and shall thereafter consult in good faith with the Indemnifying Party at reasonable periodic intervals on matters relating to the defense of such Third-Party Claim, and (B) the Indemnifying Party may, with legal counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Party, assume control of the defense of such Third-Party Claim if, and only if, (w) the Third-Party Claim is asserted by a Person other than a Governmental or Regulatory Authority, is solely for actual monetary damages (and not for punitive, exemplary or similar damages, treble damages or other damages in excess of actual damages), does not seek a declaratory judgment, injunctive or other equitable relief, or specific performance, and the total monetary damages that may be awarded with respect to such Third-Party Claim do not exceed the lesser of five million dollars ($5,000,000) or the amount then remaining in the Escrow Fund after deducting therefrom the amount of all outstanding unpaid and/or unresolved claims for indemnification, (x) the Person asserting the Third-Party Claim is not a customer, supplier or strategic partner of Purchaser or any of its Subsidiaries and is not party to a material business relationship with the Indemnifying Party that may create a material risk of a conflict between the interests of the Indemnified Party and the Indemnifying Party with respect to the defense of the Third-Party Claim, (y) the Third-Party Claim does not involve a criminal, quasi-criminal or regulatory matter, and (z) no later than twenty (20) days after notice by the Indemnified Party to the Indemnifying Party of the assertion of such Third-Party Claim, the Indemnifying Party shall have notified the Indemnified Party in writing of its election to assume such defense and shall have acknowledged unconditionally that such Third-Party Claim is subject to indemnification by the Indemnifying Party pursuant to this Article 7. If the Indemnifying Party elects to assume control of the defense of such a Third-Party Claim, (AA) the Indemnifying Party shall thereafter from time to time promptly provide to the Indemnified Party copies of all pleadings filed and all Orders issued in such Action or Proceeding relating to such Third-Party Claim, and shall consult in good faith with the Indemnified Party at reasonable periodic intervals on matters regarding the defense of such Third-Party Claim; (BB) the Indemnified Party shall have the right to participate in such Action or Proceeding at its own expense; (CC) the Indemnifying Party shall not, without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party, default or confess or consent to the entry of

-67-


 

judgment or any similar action with respect to any such Third-Party Claim or enter into or agree to any settlement of any such Third-Party Claim (other than a settlement solely for payment of money within the amounts set forth in clause (B)(w) above that contains a full release in favor of the Indemnified Party and its Subsidiaries). If thereafter the Third-Party Claim shall be amended or supplemented such that it no longer meets the criteria set forth in clauses (A) through (B) above, or if at any time after the assumption of control of defense the Indemnifying Party is failing, in the reasonable judgment of the Indemnified Party after written notice to the Indemnifying Party and reasonable opportunity for cure, to pursue the defense of such Third-Party Claim with reasonable diligence and vigor, the Indemnified Party may, upon written notice to the Indemnifying Party, re-assume the control and conduct of the defense of such Third-Party Claim. Where an Action or Proceeding also involves claims that are not subject to indemnification under this Article 7, the Indemnifying Party’s rights with respect to control of defense shall not extend to claims that are not subject to indemnification. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Purchaser shall have the right (and, at Seller’s request, the obligation) to conduct and control the defense of any Third-Party Claim to the extent that it is for (and is acknowledged by Purchaser to be) an Assumed Liability and Seller shall have the right (and, at Purchaser’s request, the obligation) to conduct and control the defense of any Third-Party Claim to the extent that it is for (and is acknowledged by Seller to be) a Retained Liability.
ARTICLE 8.
TERMINATION, AMENDMENT AND WAIVER
     8.1 Termination. Except as provided in Section 8.2, this Agreement may be terminated and the transactions contemplated hereby abandoned at any time prior to the Closing:
