(iii)         all rights under or related to non-competition, non-solicitation and restrictive covenant agreements and arrangements, and all invention assignments and work made for hire provisions regarding such Seller arising by operation of Law or contract with respect to the relationship between such Seller and any of its current or former employees or independent contractors;

(d)           Excluded Liabilities.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Purchaser shall not be responsible for any Liabilities of Seller or any Affiliate of Seller that are not Assumed Liabilities specifically described in Section 1.1(c) (such excluded Liabilities, collectively, the “Excluded Liabilities”).  In furtherance of, and not in limitation of, the foregoing, and notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Purchaser shall not be responsible for any of the following (each of which shall also constitute Excluded Liabilities):

(ii)         any Liability relating to any Excluded Asset;
 
(iii)        any Liability imposed by or in connection with any Law or Permit, and incurred in connection with (A) conditions existing, events or acts occurring or omissions of acts occurring on or prior to the Closing, or (B) any real property or business entities, whether domestic or foreign, formerly owned, leased, occupied or operated by or in connection with the Business;
 
 
3

 
(iv)        any Liability or Legal Proceeding caused by, relating to or arising from any fact, transaction, status, event, condition, circumstance, occurrence or situation, whether known or unknown, existing, arising or occurring on or prior to the Closing, or otherwise attributable to the pre-Closing operation of the Business;

(xiii)       any Liability for unpaid commissions not included in the Closing Date Net Working Capital set forth in the Final Closing Statement or Adjusted Final Closing Statement, as the case may be.
 
 
4

 
 
(e)           Required Consents.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, this Agreement shall not constitute an agreement to assign or transfer any Purchased Asset or interest therein as to which (i) an assignment or transfer thereof or an attempt to make such an assignment or transfer without a Consent (a “Required Consent”) would constitute a breach or violation thereof or of applicable Law, or would adversely affect the rights or obligations thereunder to be assigned or transferred to or for the account of Purchaser and (ii) such Required Consent shall not have been obtained prior to the Closing.  Any transfer or assignment to Purchaser by Seller of any such Purchased Asset or interest therein (a “Delayed Asset”), and any assumption by Purchaser of any corresponding Assumed Liability (a “Delayed Liability”), shall be made subject to all such Required Consents in respect of such Delayed Asset being obtained.  If there are any Delayed Assets, each Seller Party shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain all Required Consents in respect thereof as promptly as practicable following the Closing, provided that Purchaser shall provide its cooperation as may be reasonably requested by any Seller Party at no material cost or expense to Purchaser or any of its Affiliates.  Until all Required Consents with respect to each Delayed Asset have been obtained, (i) the Seller shall hold the Delayed Asset on behalf of Purchaser, (ii) Seller Parties shall cooperate with Purchaser for no additional consideration in any lawful arrangement (including subleasing or subcontracting, or performance thereunder by such Seller as Purchaser’s agent) requested by Purchaser to provide Purchaser with all of the benefits of or under any such Delayed Asset, (iii) the Seller shall otherwise enforce and perform for the account of Purchaser and as directed by Purchaser any other rights and obligations of such Seller arising from such Delayed Asset (and not waive, alter or amend any of same without the consent of Purchaser) and (iv) Purchaser shall bear the full cost and expense associated with such Delayed Asset, including but not limited to any cost or expense incurred by Seller in complying with the foregoing subparagraphs (i) – (iii) but solely to the extent Purchaser derives benefit therefrom.  Seller Parties shall cause Seller to comply with its obligations under this Agreement and to maintain its corporate or other existence until all of its obligations pursuant to this Section 1.1(e) and otherwise herein are performed in full and all Delayed Assets are transferred and assigned hereunder. At such time and on each occasion after the Closing Date as all Required Consents with respect to a Delayed Asset have been obtained, such Delayed Asset shall automatically be transferred and assigned by Seller to Purchaser for no additional consideration without any further act on the part of any Party.
 
Section 1.2             Transaction Consideration. The aggregate consideration (collectively, the “Transaction Consideration”) to be paid by Purchaser for the Purchased Assets shall consist of:
 
(i)          $37,990,000.00 in cash; plus
 
(ii)         a number of unregistered ordinary shares of no par value, of Parent (the “Parent Shares”) determined by dividing $1,800,000 by the Average Closing Share Price; plus
 
(iii)        any Earnout Payment made pursuant to, and subject to the terms of, Section 1.6; minus
 
(iv)        the amount, if any, by which the Closing Date Net Working Capital is less than the Target Net Working Capital; plus
 
(v)         the amount, if any, by which the Closing Date Net Working Capital is greater than the Target Net Working Capital; plus
 
(vi)        the Contingent Payment, if any; minus
 
(vii)       any Indebtedness that is not Indebtedness for Borrowed Money.
 
 
5

 
 
A portion of the Transaction Consideration payable in cash shall be used to discharge and pay in full (i) all Indebtedness for Borrowed Money, (ii) the Seller Transaction Expenses and (iii) the Change of Control Payments, except for the Change of Control Payment pursuant to the Contract specified in Schedule 1.1(b)(x).  Seller acknowledges receipt of the Deposit, which shall be applied against the Transaction Consideration at Closing.
 
Section 1.3             Closing Date.  Unless this Agreement shall have been terminated in accordance with Section 7.1, and subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth in Article VI, the Closing will take place at 11:00 a.m., Eastern Daylight Time, on a date to be specified by the Parties, which shall be no later than the second Business Day after the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth in Article VI (other than those that by their terms are to be satisfied or waived at the Closing), at the offices of Akerman LLP, Three Brickell City Centre, 98 SE 7th Street, Miami, FL 33131, unless another time, date and/or place is agreed to in writing by Parties (the date of the Closing, the “Closing Date”). The Closing may occur by the exchange of documents, certificates or other instruments via facsimile or electronic transmission (in PDF or other electronic format).

(b)           If Seller disputes any amount as shown on the Closing Statement delivered by Purchaser or Purchaser disputes any amount as shown on the Closing Statement delivered by Seller, the disputing Party shall deliver to the other Parties within thirty (30) days after receipt of the disputed Closing Statement a notice (the “Dispute Notice”) setting forth the disputing Party’s calculation of such amount and describing in reasonable detail the basis for the determination of such different amount. If the Party receiving the Closing Statement does not deliver a Dispute Notice to the Party that delivered the Closing Statement within such thirty (30) day period, such delivered Closing Statement shall be deemed to be the “Final Closing Statement”.  The Parties shall use commercially reasonable efforts to resolve such differences within a period of thirty (30) days after the Dispute Notice is given.  If the Parties resolve such differences, the Closing Statement agreed to by the Parties shall be deemed to be the Final Closing Statement.  If Purchaser and Seller do not reach a final resolution on the Closing Statement within thirty (30) days after the Dispute Notice is given, unless Purchaser and Seller mutually agree to continue their efforts to resolve such differences, the Neutral Accountant shall resolve such differences pursuant to an engagement agreement among Purchaser, Seller and the Neutral Accountant (which Purchaser and Seller agree to execute promptly), in the manner provided below.  The Neutral Accountant shall only decide the specific items under dispute by the Parties (the “Disputed Items”), solely in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Purchaser and Seller shall each be entitled to make a presentation to the Neutral Accountant, pursuant to procedures to be agreed to among Purchaser, Seller and the Neutral Accountant (or, if they cannot agree on such procedures, pursuant to procedures determined by the Neutral Accountant), regarding such Party’s determination of the amounts to be set forth on the Final Closing Statement; and the Parties shall use commercially reasonable efforts to cause the Neutral Accountant to resolve the differences between Purchaser and Seller and determine the amounts to be set forth on the Final Closing Statement within twenty (20) days after the engagement of the Neutral Accountant.  The Neutral Accountant’s determination shall be based solely on such presentations of the Parties (i.e., not on independent review) and on the definitions and other terms included herein.  The Closing Statement determined by the Neutral Accountant shall be deemed to be the “Adjusted Final Closing Statement”.  Such determination by the Neutral Accountant shall be final and binding upon the Parties, absent fraud or manifest error, and shall be considered an arbitral award for all purposes.  If Seller delivered the Dispute Notice, the fees and expenses of the Neutral Accountant shall be paid by the Party whose calculation of the Final Adjustment Amount (as defined below) is farther from the Neutral Accountant’s calculation thereof.  If Purchaser delivered the Dispute Notice, the fees and expenses of the Neutral Accountant shall be paid by Purchaser; provided, however, if the Neutral Accountant's calculation of the Final Adjustment Amount indicates that Seller's calculation of that amount overestimated the Final Adjustment Amount due to Seller by more than five percent (5%) or underestimated the Final Adjustment Amount payable by Seller by more than five percent (5%), then in either of such cases the fees and expenses of the Neutral Accountant shall be paid by the Party whose calculation of the Final Adjustment Amount is farther from the Neutral Accountant’s calculation thereof.  Nothing in this Section 1.5(b) shall be construed to authorize or permit the Neutral Accountant to: (i) determine any questions or matters whatsoever under or in connection with this Agreement except for the resolution of differences between Purchaser and Seller regarding the determination of the Final Closing Statement; or (ii) resolve any such differences by making an adjustment to the Closing Statement that is outside of the range defined by amounts as finally proposed by Purchaser and Seller. The amount determined to be due as a result of the application of the provisions of Section 1.5 shall be referred to as the “Final Adjustment Amount”.

(c)           Promptly, but no later than five (5) Business Days after the final determination thereof, if the Closing Date Net Working Capital set forth in the Final Closing Statement or Adjusted Final Closing Statement, as applicable: (i) exceeds the Estimated Net Working Capital, Purchaser shall pay such excess amount to Seller by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account(s) designated by Seller; or (ii) is less than the Estimated Net Working Capital, Seller shall, at Purchaser’s election, (A) pay an amount equal to such shortfall to Purchaser by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account designated by Purchaser, or (B) direct the Escrow Agent to pay to Purchaser from the Indemnity Escrow Amount the amount equal to such shortfall or any portion thereof. Each Party hereby agrees to execute and deliver all joint instructions to the Escrow Agent necessary to give effect to this Section 1.5.
 
Section 1.6             Earnout.
 
(a)           Earnout; Definitions. For purposes of this Section 1.6, “2016 Revenues” means, the revenues of Seller for the period commencing on January 1, 2016 and ending on the day preceding the Closing Date plus the revenues of Purchaser for the period commencing on the Closing Date and ending on December 31, 2016, in each case determined in accordance with GAAP, to the extent such revenues are generated with gross profit margins consistent with past practices of Seller, provided that any revenues generated at a lower gross profit margin shall be included in the calculation of 2016 Revenues if derived from a customer with the written approval of the Purchaser’s or Parent’s chief financial officer (or other senior management, excluding Correll, Tharrington and Specified Employees).
 
(b)           Earnout Payments. As additional consideration for the Purchased Assets, at such time and as provided in Section 1.6(d), Purchaser shall cause the Escrow Agent to pay to Seller in the aggregate an amount equal to $2,000,000 (the “Earnout Payment”) if 2016 Revenues equal or exceed $15,600,000; provided, however, that in no event shall the Earnout Payment be more than $2,000,000 in the aggregate under this Section 1.6(b).
 
(c)           Procedures Applicable to Determination of Earnout Payments.
 
(i)           On or before the earlier of (A) thirty (30) days after the finalization of Purchaser’s or Parent’s 2016 audited financial statements, and (b) April 30, 2017, Purchaser shall prepare and deliver to Seller a written statement (the “Earnout Calculation Statement”) setting forth its calculation of the Earnout Payment. Prior to such date, Purchaser shall have the right to inspect Seller’s books and records during normal business hours at Seller’s offices, upon reasonable prior notice and solely for purposes reasonably related to the determinations of the Earnout Payment.
 
(ii)           Seller shall have sixty (60) days after receipt of the Earnout Calculation Statement (the “Review Period”) to review the Earnout Calculation Statement. During the Review Period, Seller and its representatives shall have the right to inspect Purchaser’s books and records during normal business hours at Purchaser’s offices, upon reasonable prior notice and solely for purposes reasonably related to the determinations of the Earnout Payment. Prior to the expiration of the Review Period, Seller may object to the determination set forth in the Earnout Calculation Statement by delivering a written notice of objection (the “Earnout Calculation Objection Notice”) to Purchaser. The Earnout Calculation Objection Notice shall specify the items in the applicable determination disputed by Seller and shall describe in reasonable detail the basis for such objection, as well as the amount in dispute. If Seller fails to deliver the Earnout Calculation Objection Notice to Purchaser prior to the expiration of the Review Period, then the determination set forth in the Earnout Calculation Statement prepared and delivered by Purchaser shall be deemed to be the “Final Earnout Calculation Statement”. If Seller timely delivers the Earnout Calculation Objection Notice, Purchaser and Seller shall negotiate in good faith to resolve their disputes. If Purchaser and Seller are unable to resolve their disputes within thirty (30) days after such an Earnout Calculation Objection Notice has been given, all unresolved disputed items shall be promptly referred to the Neutral Accountant. The Neutral Accountant shall be directed to render a written report on the unresolved disputed items with respect to the applicable determination as promptly as practicable, and to resolve only those disputed items set forth in the Earnout Calculation Objection Notice. The Earnout Calculation Statement determined by the Neutral Accountant shall be deemed to be the “Adjusted Final Earnout Calculation Statement.”  Such determination by the Neutral Accountant shall be final and binding upon the Parties, absent fraud or manifest error and shall be considered an arbitral award for all purposes.  If unresolved disputed items are submitted to the Neutral Accountant, Purchaser and Seller shall each furnish to the Neutral Accountant such work papers, schedules and other documents and information relating to the unresolved disputed items as the Neutral Accountant may reasonably request. The Neutral Accountant shall resolve the disputed items based solely on the applicable definitions and other terms in this Agreement and the presentations by Purchaser and Seller, and not by independent review. The fees and expenses of the Neutral Accountant shall be paid by the Purchaser if the Neutral Accountant determines that the Earnout Payment is owing, or by Seller if the Neutral Accountant determines that the Earnout Payment is not owing.

(d)           Timing of Earnout Payment.  The Earnout Payment, if any, that Purchaser is required to pay, or cause to be paid, pursuant to Section 1.6(b) hereof shall be paid in full no later five (5) Business Days following the date upon which the determination of the Earnout Payment becomes final and binding upon the Parties as provided for in Section 1.6(c)(ii) (including any final resolution of any dispute raised by Seller in an Earnout Calculation Objection Notice), as set forth in the Final Earnout Calculation or the Adjusted Final Earnout Calculation Statement, as applicable.  If the Earnout Payment is due to Seller, Purchaser and Seller shall by joint written instruction promptly direct the Escrow Agent to pay to Seller the Earnout Payment from the Earnout Escrow Amount in cash by wire transfer of immediately available funds to a bank account(s) designated by Seller in writing.  If the Earnout Payment is not due to Seller, Purchaser and Seller shall by joint written instruction promptly direct the Escrow Agent to return to Purchaser the Earnout Payment from the Earnout Escrow Amount in cash by wire transfer of immediately available funds to a bank account designated by Purchaser in writing.
 
(e)           Post-Closing Operation of the Purchased Assets and No Representations. Seller acknowledge and agree that (i) the timing and eligibility for the Earnout Payment is speculative and subject to numerous factors outside the control of Purchaser, (ii) there is no guarantee that the Earnout Payment payable to Seller under this Agreement shall be payable to Seller and Purchaser has not promised the Earnout Payment, (iii) neither Purchaser  nor any of its officers, directors, employees or agents, owes a fiduciary duty or any other duty, whether express or implied, to Seller with respect to the Earnout Payment, (iv) the Parties solely intend the express provisions of this Agreement to govern their contractual relationship with respect to the Earnout Payment, (v) subject to the terms of this Agreement, subsequent to the Closing, Purchaser shall own all of the Purchased Assets and shall have discretion with regard to matters relating to the operation of the Purchased Assets; provided, that Purchaser shall not, directly or indirectly, take any actions in bad faith or otherwise that would have under any circumstances the purpose of avoiding the Earnout Payment, and (vi) Purchaser makes no representation and expresses no opinion as to the likelihood that the Purchased Assets shall perform in a manner which shall result in payment of the Earnout Payment and the contingent right to receive the Earnout Payment is not an investment in Purchaser or the Purchased Assets.
 
 
11

 
 
(f)           No Security. The Parties understand and agree that (i) the contingent rights to receive the Earnout Payment shall not be represented by any form of certificate or other instrument, are not transferrable, except by operation of Laws relating to descent and distribution, divorce and community property, and do not constitute an equity or ownership interest in Purchaser or any Subsidiary thereof, (ii) no Seller Party shall have any rights as a security holder of Purchaser or any Subsidiary thereof as a result of Seller’s contingent right to receive the Earnout Payment hereunder, and (iii) no interest is payable with respect to the Earnout Payment.
 
Section 1.7            Tax Withholding.  Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, Purchaser shall be entitled to deduct and withhold from the consideration otherwise payable pursuant to this Agreement to any Person such amounts as it is required to deduct and withhold from such Person with respect to the making of such payment under the Code and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, or any provision of any Law relating to Taxes. To the extent that amounts are so withheld by Purchaser, such withheld amounts shall be treated for all purposes of this Agreement as having been paid to such Person in respect of which such deduction and withholding was made by Purchaser.
 
Section 1.8            Allocation of Transaction Consideration.  Schedule 1.8 (the “Allocation Schedule”) sets forth the Parties' agreed allocation of the Transaction Consideration paid in accordance with Section 1.4 prepared in accordance with the Code Section 1060 and the Treasury Regulations promulgated thereunder. The Parties agree that they shall report the Transaction Consideration in a manner entirely consistent with such allocation schedule in all Tax Returns and forms and in the course of any Tax audit, Tax review or Tax litigation relating hereto.

(b)           Non-Third Party Claims.  With respect to any claim for indemnification hereunder which does not involve a Third Party Claim, the Indemnified Party will give the Indemnifying Party written notice of such claim.  The Indemnifying Party may acknowledge and agree by notice to the Indemnified Party in writing to satisfy such claim within fifteen (15) days of receipt of notice of such claim from the Indemnified Party.  If the Indemnifying Party shall dispute such claim, the Indemnifying Party shall provide written notice of such dispute to the Indemnified Party within such fifteen (15) day period.  If the Indemnifying Party shall fail to provide written notice to the Indemnified Party within fifteen (15) days of receipt of notice from the Indemnified Party that the Indemnifying Party either acknowledges and agrees to pay such claim or disputes such claim, the Indemnifying Party shall be deemed to have acknowledged and agreed to pay such claim in full and to have waived any right to dispute such claim.

Section 9.7             Severability.  If any provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the balance of this Agreement shall remain in effect. Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the Parties shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect the original intent of the Parties as closely as possible in a mutually acceptable manner in order that the transactions contemplated hereby be consummated as originally contemplated to the greatest extent possible.
 
Section 9.8             Binding Effect; Assignment; Third-Party Beneficiaries.  This Agreement shall be binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of the Parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns; provided, however, that no Party may assign its rights and/or obligations hereunder without the consent of the other Parties. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Purchaser may assign its rights pursuant to this Agreement to an Affiliate of Purchaser or to Purchaser’s Parent, provided, however, such assignment shall not relieve Purchaser of its obligations hereunder.  In addition, Purchaser may assign any or all of its rights pursuant to this Agreement to any lender to Purchaser, as collateral security without the consent of any of the other Parties.  Except as provided in ARTICLE VIII with respect to Persons entitled to indemnification thereunder, nothing in this Agreement shall create or be deemed to create any third party beneficiary rights in any Person.
 
Section 9.9             Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original but all of which together will constitute one and the same instrument.  Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page to this Agreement by facsimile, portable document format or other electronic means shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart to this Agreement.
 
Section 9.10           Remedies Cumulative.  Except as otherwise provided herein, no remedy herein conferred upon a Party hereto is intended to be exclusive of any other remedy, and all remedies herein conferred are cumulative.  No single or partial exercise by a Party hereto of any right, power or remedy hereunder shall preclude any other or further exercise thereof.
 
Section 9.11           Exhibits and Schedules.  The exhibits and schedules referred to herein are attached hereto and incorporated herein by this reference.  The disclosure schedule delivered by Seller Parties to Purchaser in connection with the execution of this Agreement (the “Disclosure Schedule”) shall be arranged to correspond to the specific sections and subsections of this Agreement.  Any information disclosed in one Section of the Disclosure Schedule shall be deemed to be disclosed in all other Sections of the Disclosure Schedule where (i) an express reference thereto is made or (ii) the information on the face of such disclosure is sufficient to alert a reasonable person of its applicability to such other Sections of the Disclosure Schedule. Nothing in the Disclosure Schedule will be deemed adequate to disclose an exception to a representation or warranty made herein, unless the Disclosure Schedule identifies the exception with particularity. The mere listing (or inclusion of a copy) of a document or other item in the Disclosure Schedule will not be deemed adequate to disclose an exception to a representation or warranty made in this Agreement (unless the representation or warranty pertains to the existence of the document or other item itself).  The Parties hereto intend that each representation, warranty and covenant contained herein will have independent significance.  If any Party hereto has breached any representation, warranty, or covenant contained herein in any respect, the fact that there exists another representation, warranty, or covenant relating to the same subject matter (regardless of the relative levels of specificity) which the Party has not breached will not detract from or mitigate the fact that the Party is in breach of the first representation, warranty or covenant.
 
 
69

 
 
Section 9.12           Interpretation.  When a reference is made in this Agreement to an article, section, paragraph, clause, schedule or exhibit, such reference shall be deemed to be to this Agreement unless otherwise indicated.  The text of all schedules is incorporated herein by reference.  Whenever the words “include,” “includes” or “including” are used in this Agreement, they shall be deemed to be followed by the words “without limitation.”  As used herein, words in the singular will be held to include the plural and vice versa (unless the context otherwise requires), words of one gender shall be held to include the other gender (or the neuter) as the context requires, and the terms “hereof”, “herein”, and “herewith” and words of similar import will, unless otherwise stated, be construed to refer to this Agreement as a whole and not to any particular provision of this Agreement.
 
Section 9.13           Arm’s Length Negotiations.  Each Party herein expressly represents and warrants to all other Parties hereto that (a) said Party has had the opportunity to seek and has obtained the advice of its own legal, tax and business advisors before executing this Agreement; and (b) this Agreement is the result of arm’s length negotiations conducted by and among the Parties and their respective counsel.
 
Section 9.14           Construction.  The Parties agree and acknowledge that they have jointly participated in the negotiation and drafting of this Agreement.  In the event of an ambiguity or question of intent or interpretation arises, this Agreement shall be construed as if drafted jointly by the Parties and no presumptions or burdens of proof shall arise favoring any Party by virtue of the authorship of any of the provisions of this Agreement.  Any reference to any federal, state, local, or foreign statute or Law shall be deemed also to refer to all rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, unless the context requires otherwise.
 
Section 9.15           Specific Performance.  Each Party acknowledges and agrees that the other Parties would be damaged irreparably in the event any provision of this Agreement is not performed in accordance with its specific terms or otherwise is breached, and therefore a Party shall be entitled to injunctive relief to prevent breaches of the provisions of this Agreement and to enforce specifically this Agreement and the terms and provisions hereof in addition to any other remedy to which such Party may be entitled, at law or in equity.  No limitation herein shall restrict any Party from seeking and obtaining equitable relief.
 
Section 9.16          Waiver of Jury Trial.  EACH OF THE PARTIES HERETO HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ANY AND ALL RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, ANY OTHER TRANSACTION DOCUMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY OR THEREBY.
 
Section 9.17           Time of Essence.  With regard to all dates and time periods set forth or referred to in this Agreement, time is of the essence.

D.
CHANGE OF CONTROL.  For purposes of this Agreement, a “Change of Control” shall be deemed to occur if (i) a Person acquires ownership of stock that, together with stock held by such Person, constitutes more than fifty percent (50%) of the total fair market value or total voting power of the stock of magicJack; (ii) a majority of the members of magicJack’s Board of Directors are replaced during any twelve (12) month period by directors whose appointment or election is not endorsed by a majority of the members of such Board of Directors before the date of such appointment or election; or (iii) a Person (other than a Person controlled, directly or indirectly, by shareholders of magicJack) acquires fifty percent (50%) or more of the gross fair market value of the assets of magicJack over a twelve (12) month period.

4.
COMPENSATION.
 
 
A.
ANNUAL BASE SALARY.  Executive shall be paid an annual base salary of $300,000, subject to review each calendar year and possible increase in the sole discretion of the Board, payable in equal twice monthly installments (the “Annual Base Salary”).  Under no circumstances shall the Executive’s Annual Base Salary be reduced below the Annual Base Salary paid to the Executive in the immediately preceding twelve (12) month period without the Executive’s consent.

B.
ANNUAL BONUS.  For each fiscal year of employment during which the Company employs the Executive, Executive shall be eligible to receive a bonus (the “Annual Bonus”) based on the Company meeting certain performance criteria.  Executive’s target annual bonus will be the greater of (i) $150,000 or (ii) fifty percent (50%) of the then effective Annual Base Salary, subject to review each calendar year and possible increase in the sole discretion of the Board (the “Target Annual Bonus”).  Under no circumstances shall the Executive’s Target Annual Bonus be reduced below the Target Annual Bonus from the immediately preceding twelve (12) month period without the Executive’s consent.  The Annual Bonus will range from thirty-five percent (35%) to two hundred percent (200%) of the Target Annual Bonus.  The Annual Bonus formula and performance criteria for each fiscal year will be based: (i) fifty percent (50%) on the Company meeting at least eighty percent (80%) and up to one hundred twenty percent (120%) of its target revenue for the fiscal year; and (ii) fifty percent (50%) on the Company meeting at least eighty percent (80%) and up to one hundred twenty percent (120%) of its target EBITDA for the fiscal year, with the Executive being eligible to satisfy and be compensated for each criterion of the Target Annual Bonus separately.  A table showing the Target Annual Bonus payable at various increments is attached hereto as Attachment A. The Company’s target revenue and target EBITDA for calendar years 2016, 2017 and 2018 shall be as follows:
 
Calendar Year
Target Revenue
Target EBITDA
2016
$15.6 million
$4.6 million
2017
$20.0 million
$6.0 million
2018
$24.0 million
$7.2 million
 
For purposes of this Agreement, “EBITDA” shall mean earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles consistent with the application of such concepts in developing the Company’s annual budget, subject to adjustments for (x) one-time occurrences outside the ordinary course of business as deemed appropriate by magicJack’s Chief Financial Officer, and/or (y) occurrences in the ordinary course of business which magicJack’s Chief Financial Officer agrees to exclude for purposes of calculating EBITDA hereunder.
 
Executive’s Annual Bonus shall be paid on the basis of the Company’s fiscal year, which is the calendar year.  Executive will be paid an Annual Bonus for calendar year 2016 as if Executive were employed by the Company for the entire calendar year and as if all of the revenue and EBITDA figures of the Executive’s employer for the period from January 1, 2016 through the date of this Agreement were included in the Company’s revenue and EBITDA figures for 2016.
 
The Annual Bonus payable to Executive shall be paid no later than 2-1/2 months following the end of the calendar year with respect to which the Annual Bonus was earned and shall be paid regardless of whether the Executive is still employed by the Company at that time (subject to the following paragraph).
 
Except as otherwise provided in Section 7 below, Executive shall only be entitled to receive an Annual Bonus if Executive is employed by the Company pursuant to this Agreement at the close of business on the last day of the applicable fiscal year with respect to the Annual Bonus.
 
 
4

 
If the Company’s financial statements are restated for a period for which an Annual Bonus has been paid under the terms of this Agreement, the Annual Bonus amount for such period will be re-calculated by the Company (the “Recalculated Bonus Amount”).  In any such event, the difference between the Annual Bonus in question and the Recalculated Bonus Amount shall be paid to or refunded by the Executive, as applicable, not later than sixty (60) days after the restatement, provided that no such adjustments will be made at any time after the 2nd anniversary of the Annual Bonus payment in question.
 
5.
EXECUTIVE BENEFITS AND REIMBURSEMENTS.  Executive will be entitled to twenty (20) paid-time-off (PTO) days of vacation per fiscal year. The Executive will be eligible to participate in, without action by the Board or any committee thereof, any benefits and perquisites available to executive officers of the Company or magicJack, including any group health, dental, life insurance, disability, or other form of executive benefit plan or program of the Company or magicJack now existing or that may be later adopted by the Company or magicJack (collectively, the “Executive Benefits”). The Company shall reimburse Executive for all ordinary and necessary business expenditures made by Executive in connection with, or in furtherance of, his employment upon presentation by Executive of expense statements, receipts, vouchers or such other supporting information as may from time to time be reasonably requested by magicJack’s Chief Financial Officer.
 
6.
EQUITY GRANT. Executive shall be granted stock options to purchase 500,000 shares of magicJack’s ordinary shares at an exercise price equal to the fair market value of the Company’s ordinary shares on the date of grant, which will be the date this Agreement is executed by the Company and the Executive (the “Options”).   The Options will vest as set forth in the Option Agreement granting the Options.
 
7.

The Termination Payment shall be paid in lump sum within fifteen (15) days after the Company’s receipt of a general release that has become irrevocable as specified in Section 7(F) following any termination pursuant to this Section 7(A).  In addition, the Company shall pay the Executive, within fifteen (15) days after the date of employment termination, (i) Annual Base Salary due through the date of termination; and (ii) any expense reimbursements for which the Executive has submitted request in accordance with Section 5.  In addition, the Company shall pay any Annual Bonus for a fiscal year prior to the year in which employment termination occurs in accordance with Section 4 above.

The Change of Control Termination Payment shall be made within five (5) days after a Change of Control Termination.  In addition, the Company shall pay the Executive, within five (5) days after a Change of Control Termination, (i) Annual Base Salary due through the date of termination; and (ii) any expense reimbursements for which the Executive has submitted request in accordance with Section 5.  In addition, the Company shall pay any Annual Bonus for a fiscal year prior to the year in which employment termination occurs in accordance with Section 4 above.

E.
PAYMENT REDUCTION UNDER SECTION 280G. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, in the event that the Change of Control Termination Payment or any payment or benefit received or to be received by Executive (whether pursuant to the terms of this Agreement or any other plan, arrangement or agreement) (collectively, the "Total Benefits") would be subject to the excise tax imposed under Section 4999 of the Code (the “Excise Tax”), the Total Benefits shall be reduced to the extent necessary so that no portion of the Total Benefits is subject to the Excise Tax; provided, however, that no such reduction in the Total Benefits shall be made if by not making such reduction, Executive’s Retained Amount (as hereinafter defined) would be greater than Executive’s Retained Amount if the Total Benefits are not so reduced.  In the event any such reduction is required, the Total Benefits shall be reduced in the following order: (i) the Change of Control Termination Payment, the Termination Payment, and the payment provided for by Section 7.D (pro rata to the extent more than one is payable), (ii) any other portion of the Total Benefits that are not subject to Section 409A of the Code (other than Total Benefits resulting from any accelerated vesting of equity-based awards), (iii) Total Benefits that are not subject to Section 409A and arise from any accelerated vesting of any equity-based awards and (iv) Total Benefits that are subject to Section 409A of the Code in reverse order of payment.  All determinations with respect to this Section 7(E) and the assumptions to be utilized in arriving at such determination shall be made by an independent public accounting firm with a national reputation in the United States that is reasonably agreed to by the Executive and the Company (the “Accounting Firm”) which shall provide detailed support and calculations both to the Company and to Executive. The parties hereto hereby elect to use the applicable Federal rate that is in effect on the date this Agreement is entered into for purposes of determining the present value of any payments provided for hereunder for purposes of Section 280G of the Code.  “Retained Amount” shall mean the present value (as determined in accordance with sections 280G(b)(2)(A)(ii) and 280G(d)(4) of the Code) of the Total Benefits net of all federal, state and local taxes imposed on Executive with respect thereto.
 
 
F.
GENERAL RELEASE OF CLAIMS.  Executive shall not be entitled to any Termination Payment, Change of Control Termination Payment, or the payment provided for by Section 7.D (each, a “Severance Payment”) unless (i) Executive has executed and delivered to the Company a general release of claims (in such form as the Executive and the Company shall reasonably agree) (the “Release”) and such Release has become irrevocable under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) not later than fifty-six (56) days after the date of Executive’s termination of employment hereunder.  The Company shall deliver to Executive a copy of the Release not later than three (3) days after the Company’s termination of Executive’s employment without Cause or Executive’s termination of Employment for Good Reason.
 
 
7

 
 
G.
NO OFFSET AND NO MITIGATION.  Executive shall not be required to mitigate any damages resulting from a breach by the Company of this Agreement by seeking other comparable employment. The amount of any payment or benefit provided for in this Agreement shall not be reduced by any compensation or benefits earned by or provided to Executive as a result of his employment by another employer.

GENERAL.  The Company and the Executive hereby acknowledge and agree that (i) the Executive is in possession of trade secrets of the Company (the “Trade Secrets”), (ii) the restrictive covenants contained in this Section 8 are justified by legitimate business interests of the Company, including, but not limited to, the protection of the Trade Secrets, and (iii) the restrictive covenants contained in this Section 8 are reasonably necessary to protect such legitimate business interests of the Company.
 
 
B.
NON-COMPETITION.  In consideration for the termination payments and benefits that the Executive may receive in accordance with Section 7 of this Agreement, the Executive agrees that during the period of the Executive’s employment with the Company and until two (2) years after the termination of the Executive’s employment with the Company, the Executive will not, directly or indirectly, either (i) on the Executive’s own behalf or as a partner, officer, director, trustee, executive, agent, consultant or member of any person, firm or corporation, or otherwise, enter into the employ of, render any service to, or engage in any business or activity which is the same as or competitive with any business or activity conducted by the Company or any of its Affiliate (unless Executive is engaged only in an aspect of such business or activity that is not competitive with any business or activity conducted by the Company or any of its Affiliates and is not, directly or indirectly, engaged in any aspect of such business or activity that is competitive with any business or activity conducted by the Company or any of its Affiliates), or (ii) become an officer, employee or consultant of, or otherwise assume a substantial role or relationship with, any governmental entity, agency or political subdivision that is a client or customer of the Company or any of its Affiliates; provided, however, that the foregoing shall not be deemed to prevent the Executive from investing in securities of any company having a class of securities which is publicly traded, so long as through such investment holdings in the aggregate, the Executive is not deemed to be the beneficial owner of more than five percent (5%) of the class of securities that is so publicly traded.  During the period of the Executive’s employment and until two (2) years after the termination of the Executive’s employment, the Executive will not, without the Company’s prior written consent, directly or indirectly, on the Executive’s own behalf or as a partner, shareholder, officer, executive, director, trustee, agent, consultant or member of any person, firm or corporation or otherwise, seek to employ or otherwise seek the services of any employee or consultant of the Company or any of its Affiliates.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, the provisions of this Section 8(B) shall be null and void and of no further force or effect if the Executive’s employment is terminated by the Company in connection with or as a result of the liquidation, dissolution, insolvency or other winding up of the affairs of the Company or any of its Affiliates other than in connection with a sale of substantially all the assets of the Company or any of its Affiliates, without the establishment of a successor entity to the Company.

ENFORCEMENT.  The Parties agree and acknowledge that the restrictions contained in this Section 8 are reasonable in scope and duration and are necessary to protect the Company and its Affiliates. If any covenant or agreement contained in this Section 8 is found by a court having jurisdiction to be unreasonable in duration, geographical scope or character of restriction, the covenant or agreement will not be rendered unenforceable thereby but rather the duration, geographical scope or character of restriction of such covenant or agreement will be reduced or modified with retroactive effect to make such covenant or agreement reasonable, and such covenant or agreement will be enforced as so modified.  The Executive agrees and acknowledges that the breach of this Section 8 will cause irreparable injury to the Company and/or its Affiliates and upon the breach of any provision of this Section 8, the Company or any of its Affiliates shall be entitled to injunctive relief, specific performance or other equitable relief, without being required to post a bond; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that, this shall in no way limit any other remedies which the Company or any of its Affiliates may have (including, without limitation, the right to seek monetary damages).  In the event of any conflict between the provisions of this Section 8 and Section 7 of the Agreement, the provisions of this Section 8 shall prevail.

HEADINGS.  Section headings are for convenience of reference only and shall not limit or otherwise affect the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement or any of its terms and conditions.
 
16.
SECTION 409A COMPLIANCE.
 
 
A.
GENERAL.  It is the intention of both the Company and the Executive that the benefits and rights to which the Executive is entitled pursuant to this Agreement comply with Code Section 409A or exceptions thereto and the provisions of this Agreement shall be construed in a manner consistent with that intention. If the Executive or the Company believes, at any time, that any such benefit or right that is subject to Code Section 409A does not so comply, it shall promptly advise the other and shall negotiate reasonably and in good faith to amend the terms of such benefits and rights such that they comply with Code Section 409A (with the most limited possible economic effect on the Executive and on the Company).
 
 
B.
DISTRIBUTIONS ON ACCOUNT OF SEPARATION FROM SERVICE.  To the extent required to comply with Code Section 409A, any payment or benefit required to be paid under this Agreement on account of termination of the Executive’s service (or any other similar term) shall be made only in connection with a “separation from service” with respect to the Executive within the meaning of Code Section 409A.
 
 
11

 
 
C.
NO ACCELERATION OF PAYMENTS.  Neither the Company nor the Executive, individually or in combination, may accelerate any payment or benefit that is subject to Code Section 409A, except in compliance with Code Section 409A and the provisions of this Agreement, and no amount that is subject to Code Section 409A shall be paid prior to the earliest date on which it may be paid without violating Code Section 409A.
 
 
D.
SIX MONTH DELAY FOR SPECIFIED EMPLOYEES. In the event that the Executive is a “specified employee” (as described in Code Section 409A), and any payment or benefit payable pursuant to this Agreement constitutes deferred compensation under Code Section 409A, then, to the extent required to comply with Section 409A of the Code, no such payment or benefit shall be made before the date that is six months after the Executive’s “separation from service” (as described in Code Section 409A) (or, if earlier, the date of the Executive’s death). Any payment or benefit delayed by reason of the prior sentence shall be paid out or provided in a single lump sum at the end of such required delay period in order to catch up to the original payment schedule.
 
 
E.
TREATMENT OF EACH INSTALLMENT AS A SEPARATE PAYMENT.  For purposes of applying the provisions of Code Section 409A to this Agreement, each separately identified amount to which the Executive is entitled under this Agreement shall be treated as a separate payment. In addition, to the extent permissible under Code Section 409A, any series of installment payments under this Agreement shall be treated as a right to a series of separate payments.
 
 
F.
REIMBURSEMENTS AND IN-KIND BENEFITS.  With respect to reimbursements and in-kind benefits that may be provided under this Agreement (the “Reimbursement Plans”), to the extent any benefits provided under the Reimbursement Plans are subject to Section 409A, the Reimbursement Plans shall meet the following requirements:
 
(i)            Reimbursement Plans shall use an objectively determinable, nondiscretionary definition of the expenses eligible for reimbursement or of the in-kind benefits to be provided;
 
(ii)           Reimbursement Plans shall provide that the amount of expenses eligible for reimbursement, or in-kind benefits provided, during the Executive’s taxable year may not affect the expenses eligible for reimbursement, or in-kind benefits to be provided, in any other taxable year, provided, however, that Reimbursement Plans providing for reimbursement of expenses referred to in Code Section 105(b) shall not fail to meet the requirement of this Section 16(F)(ii) solely because such Reimbursement Plans provide for a limit on the amount of expenses that may be reimbursed under such arrangements over some or all of the period in which Reimbursement Plans remain in effect;
 
 
12

 
(iii)           The reimbursement of an eligible expense is made on or before the last day of Executive’s taxable year following the taxable year in which the expense was incurred; and
 
(iv)           The right to reimbursement or in-kind benefits under the Reimbursement Plans shall not be subject to liquidation or exchange for another benefit.
 
17.
INDEMNIFICATION; D&O INSURANCE.  The Company agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Executive from any and all damages, liabilities, claims, and expenses including court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred by the Executive as a result of actions taken by the Executive in the course of employment with the Company, provided that:  (i) such action was within the scope of the Executive’s duties (as delineated in this Agreement); (ii) such action did not constitute gross negligence or willful misconduct by the Executive, and (iii) the Executive promptly notifies the Company of any such claim, and cooperates, at the expense of the Company, in the defense or settlement of such claim.  The Company currently has in place Directors and Officers Liability Insurance, and during the term of this Agreement the Company will maintain such insurance in full force and effect and its effectiveness with respect to the Executive.  The provisions of this Section 17 will survive termination of this Agreement indefinitely.
 
18.
COUNSEL FEES.  In connection with any dispute between the parties arising from, based on or in relation to this Agreement, the party that substantially prevails in such dispute shall be reimbursed for all reasonable costs, including attorney’s fees and costs, incurred by such party in connection with the dispute.  The provisions of this Section 18 will survive termination of this Agreement indefinitely.
 
19.
COUNTERPARTS.  This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same instrument.
