(b)           If the HHI Purchase Price as finally determined in accordance with this Section 2.04 is less than the Estimated HHI Purchase Price, Seller shall pay to Purchaser the total amount of such deficit, and if the HHI Purchase Price as finally determined in accordance with this Section 2.04 exceeds the Estimated HHI Purchase Price, Purchaser shall pay to Seller the total amount of such excess, in either case by wire transfer of immediately available U.S. dollar funds to an account designated by the party receiving payment, within three (3) Business Days after the final determination of the HHI Purchase Price, plus interest on such amount, accrued from the First Closing Date to the date of such payment at the prime rate applicable from time to time as announced by Citibank, N.A.
 
 
 
 
39

 
 
(c)           As promptly as practicable (and, in any event, within sixty (60) days after the First Closing), Seller shall prepare and deliver to Purchaser a statement setting forth Seller’s calculation of (i) Modified Working Capital, (ii) HHI Closing Net Indebtedness (which shall set forth with specificity the amount of Cash and Cash Equivalents for each of the categories described in clauses (a) through (d) of the definition of “Cash and Cash Equivalents”), and (iii) the HHI Purchase Price pursuant to this Section 2.04 (the “HHI Closing Statement”).  The parties agree to provide each other and their respective Representatives access to their respective books, records and personnel to the extent relating to the HHI Business throughout the periods during which the HHI Closing Statement is being prepared or evaluated and any disputes that may arise under this Section 2.04 are being resolved.  If Purchaser disagrees with the determination of the HHI Closing Statement, Purchaser shall notify Seller in writing of such disagreement within sixty (60) days after delivery of the HHI Closing Statement, which written notice shall set forth any such disagreement in reasonable detail (“Disagreement Notice”).  If Purchaser fails to deliver a Disagreement Notice by the end of such 60-day period, Purchaser shall be deemed to have accepted the HHI Closing Statement delivered by Seller.  Matters included in the calculations in the HHI Closing Statement to which Purchaser does not object in the Disagreement Notice shall be deemed accepted by Purchaser and shall not be subject to further dispute or review.  Purchaser and Seller shall negotiate in good faith to resolve any such disagreement, and any resolution agreed to in writing by Purchaser and Seller shall be final and binding upon the parties.
 
(d)           If Purchaser and Seller are unable to resolve any disagreement as contemplated by Section 2.04(c) within thirty (30) days after delivery by Purchaser of a Disagreement Notice, Purchaser and Seller shall jointly select a mutually acceptable third party accounting firm, the retention of which will not give rise to present or potential future auditor independence problems for Seller, Purchaser or any of their respective Affiliates or Subsidiaries, as determined by the reasonable discretion of Seller and Purchaser, to resolve such disagreement (the firm so selected shall be referred to herein as the “Accounting Arbitrator”).  The parties shall instruct the Accounting Arbitrator to consider only those items and amounts set forth in the HHI Closing Statement as to which Purchaser has disagreed pursuant to a Disagreement Notice and Purchaser and Seller have not resolved their disagreement.  The scope of the disputes to be resolved by the Accounting Arbitrator shall be limited to whether such calculation was done in accordance with the terms hereof, the accounting methods, standards, policies, practices, classifications, estimation methodologies, assumptions or procedures used to prepare the HHI Closing Statement, and whether there were mathematical errors in the calculation of the HHI Closing Statement, and the Accounting Arbitrator shall not make any other determination.  The Accounting Arbitrator shall make its determination based solely on written submissions, presentations and supporting material provided by Purchaser and Seller and not pursuant to any independent review.  In resolving any such disagreement, the Accounting Arbitrator may not assign a value to such item greater than the greatest value for such item claimed by Seller in the HHI Closing Statement or by Purchaser in the Disagreement Notice or less than the lowest value for such item claimed by Seller in the HHI Closing Statement or by Purchaser in the Disagreement Notice.  Purchaser and Seller shall use commercially reasonable efforts to cause the Accounting Arbitrator to deliver to all parties, as promptly as practicable, a written report setting forth the resolution of any such disagreement determined in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.  Such report shall be final and binding upon the parties, absent manifest error.  The fees, costs and expenses of the Accounting Arbitrator arising in connection with this Section 2.04 shall be borne by the parties in such proportion to reflect the relative amount of each party’s determination that has been modified pursuant to the Accounting Arbitrator’s report.  For example, if Purchaser claims in the Disagreement Notice that it is entitled to an adjustment payment of $100,000, but the Accounting Arbitrator determines that Purchaser has a valid claim for only $30,000, then Seller shall bear 30% of the fees, costs and expenses of the Accounting Arbitrator and Purchaser shall bear the other 70% of such fees, costs and expenses.
 
 
 
 
40

 
 
(e)           Purchaser and Seller agree that any payments made pursuant to this Section 2.04 shall be allocated in a manner consistent with any allocation agreed to pursuant to Section 2.03(e).
 
(f)           With respect to Cash and Cash Equivalents and Indebtedness of the HHI Business denominated in currencies other than U.S. dollars, the current foreign exchange rate for each such currency as of immediately before the effective time of the First Closing as published by Reuters, shall be used to convert such amounts into U.S. dollars for purposes of determining HHI Closing Net Indebtedness in connection with the adjustments pursuant to this Section 2.04.
 
Section 2.05                      TLM Purchase Price Adjustment.
 
(a)           If the TLM Purchase Price as finally determined in accordance with this Section 2.05 is less than the Estimated TLM Purchase Price, Seller shall pay to Purchaser the total amount of such deficit, and if the TLM Purchase Price as finally determined in accordance with this Section 2.05 exceeds the Estimated TLM Purchase Price, Purchaser shall pay to Seller the total amount of such excess, in either case by wire transfer of immediately available U.S. dollar funds to an account designated by the party receiving payment, within three (3) Business Days after the final determination of the TLM Purchase Price, plus interest on such amount, accrued from the Second Closing Date to the date of such payment at the prime rate applicable from time to time as announced by Citibank, N.A.
 
(b)           As promptly as practicable (and, in any event, within 60 days after the Second Closing), Seller shall prepare and deliver to Purchaser a statement setting forth Seller’s calculation of (i) TLM Closing Net Indebtedness (which shall set forth with specificity the amount of Cash and Cash Equivalents for the category described in clause (e) of the definition of “Cash and Cash Equivalents”), and (ii) the TLM Purchase Price pursuant to this Section 2.05 (the “TLM Closing Statement”).  The parties agree to provide each other and their respective Representatives access to their respective books, records and personnel to the extent relating to the TLM Business throughout the periods during which the TLM Closing Statement is being prepared or evaluated and any disputes that may arise under this Section 2.05 are being resolved.  If Purchaser disagrees with the determination of the TLM Closing Statement, Purchaser shall notify Seller of such disagreement within 60 days after delivery of the TLM Closing Statement by delivering a Disagreement Notice.  If Purchaser fails to deliver a Disagreement Notice by the end of such 60-day period, Purchaser shall be deemed to have accepted the TLM Closing Statement delivered by Seller.  Matters included in the calculations in the TLM Closing Statement to which Purchaser does not object in the Disagreement Notice shall be deemed accepted by Purchaser and shall not be subject to further dispute or review.  Purchaser and Seller shall negotiate in good faith to resolve any such disagreement, and any resolution agreed to in writing by Purchaser and Seller shall be final and binding upon the parties.
 
 
 
 
41

 
 
(c)           If Purchaser and Seller are unable to resolve any disagreement as contemplated by Section 2.05(b) within thirty (30) days after delivery by Purchaser of a Disagreement Notice, Purchaser and Seller shall jointly refer the matter to the Accounting Arbitrator.  The parties shall instruct the Accounting Arbitrator to consider only those items and amounts set forth in the TLM Closing Statement as to which Purchaser has disagreed pursuant to a Disagreement Notice and Purchaser and Seller have not resolved their disagreement.  The scope of the disputes to be resolved by the Accounting Arbitrator shall be limited to whether such calculation was done in accordance with the terms hereof, the accounting methods, standards, policies, practices, classifications, estimation methodologies, assumptions or procedures used to prepare the TLM Closing Statement, and whether there were mathematical errors in the calculation of the TLM Closing Statement, and the Accounting Arbitrator shall not make any other determination.  The Accounting Arbitrator shall make its determination based solely on written submissions, presentations and supporting material provided by Purchaser and Seller and not pursuant to any independent review.  In resolving any such disagreement, the Accounting Arbitrator may not assign a value to such item greater than the greatest value for such item claimed by Seller in the TLM Closing Statement or by Purchaser in the Disagreement Notice or less than the lowest value for such item claimed by Seller in the TLM Closing Statement or by Purchaser in the Disagreement Notice.  Purchaser and Seller shall use commercially reasonable efforts to cause the Accounting Arbitrator to deliver to all parties, as promptly as practicable, a written report setting forth the resolution of any such disagreement determined in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.  Such report shall be final and binding upon the parties, absent manifest error.  The fees, costs and expenses of the Accounting Arbitrator arising in connection with this Section 2.05 shall be borne by the parties in such proportion to reflect the relative amount of each party’s determination that has been modified pursuant to the Accounting Arbitrator’s report.  For example, if Purchaser claims in the Disagreement Notice that it is entitled to an adjustment payment of $100,000, but the Accounting Arbitrator determines that Purchaser has a valid claim for only $30,000, then Seller shall bear 30% of the fees, costs and expenses of the Accounting Arbitrator and Purchaser shall bear the other 70% of such fees, costs and expenses.
 
(d)           Purchaser and Seller agree that any payments made pursuant to this Section 2.05 shall be allocated in a manner consistent with any allocation agreed to pursuant to Section 2.03(f).
 
(e)           With respect to Cash and Cash Equivalents and Indebtedness of the TLM Business denominated in currencies other than U.S. dollars, the current foreign exchange rate for each such currency as of immediately before the effective time of the Second Closing as published by Reuters, shall be used to convert such amounts into U.S. dollars for purposes of determining TLM Closing Net Indebtedness in connection with the adjustments pursuant to this Section 2.05.

manner that complies with Section 6.03 and at Purchaser’s expense, at a reasonable time, under the reasonable supervision of Seller’s personnel and in such a manner as to maintain confidentiality and not to interfere with the normal operations of the businesses of Seller and its Subsidiaries.  Notwithstanding anything contained in this or any other agreement between Purchaser and Seller executed on or prior to the date hereof, neither Seller nor any of its Subsidiaries shall have any obligation to make available to Purchaser or its Representatives, or provide Purchaser or its Representatives with, (a) any consolidated, combined or unitary Tax Return filed by Seller or any of its Affiliates or predecessors, or any related material, except to the extent that any such Tax Return or related material relates solely to the Transferred Entities, the Business or the Transferred HHI Assets or (b) any information if making such information available would (i) reasonably be likely to result in a waiver of any attorney-client or other legal privilege, or (ii) contravene any applicable Law, fiduciary duty or binding agreement (including any confidentiality agreement to which Seller or any of its Affiliates is a party) (it being understood that Seller shall cooperate in any reasonable efforts and requests for waivers that would enable otherwise required disclosure to Purchaser to occur without so jeopardizing privilege or contravening such Law, duty or agreement).  Subject to the preceding sentence and applicable Law, Purchaser shall have the right to appoint up to two designees (the “Purchaser Designees”) who shall have the right from and after the date hereof to be present at the headquarters of the Business at all times during normal business hours (including by Seller causing sufficient office space and assistance to be provided at such location to such persons) in order for such designees to assist in transition planning and monitor compliance with the terms of this Agreement, including Section 6.01, and Seller shall promptly provide to each Purchaser Designee such access and shall promptly furnish such information as such Purchaser Designee may reasonably request in furtherance of the foregoing.

Section 6.06                      Insurance.
 
(a)           Except as provided in Section 6.06(c), (i) Purchaser shall not, and shall cause its Affiliates, including the Transferred Entities after the First Closing and Second Closing, as applicable, not to, assert, by way of claim, action, litigation or otherwise, any right to any Seller Policies or any benefit under any such Seller Policies, and (ii) Seller and its Affiliates (other than the Transferred Entities) shall retain after the Closings all right, title and interest in and to Seller Policies, including the right to any credit or return premiums due, paid or payable in connection with the termination thereof.

(d)           Purchaser shall cooperate as reasonably requested by Seller and its Subsidiaries (at the expense of Seller) to obtain the return or release of all bonds, security, credit support, parent guaranties, and indemnifications given by Seller and its Subsidiaries (other than by the Transferred Entities without any credit support from Seller and its Subsidiaries, other than the Transferred Entities) in connection with the Business; provided, that neither Purchaser nor any of its Affiliates (including, after the Closings, the applicable Transferred Entities) shall be obligated to make any payments or incur any costs or expenses or post any bond, security, letter of credit, guaranty or other collateral or provide any indemnification in connection therewith.  If, notwithstanding Purchaser’s compliance with the foregoing sentence, any such bonds, security, credit support, parent guaranties or indemnifications remain outstanding following the applicable Closing, Purchaser shall indemnify and hold harmless Seller and its Subsidiaries from and against all Losses suffered or incurred by them in connection with such bonds, security, credit support, parent guaranties or indemnifications.

reasonably necessary in connection with the funding of the Debt Financing) with respect to such Debt Financing on the terms and conditions (including the “flex” provisions) contemplated by the Debt Financing Commitment (and provide executed copies of such definitive agreements to Seller) or on other terms in the aggregate materially no less favorable to Purchaser or the interests of Seller, as to conditionality, than the terms and conditions in the Debt Financing Commitment (provided that in no event shall any such definitive agreement contain terms (other than those included in the Debt

such portion on terms and conditions (x) not materially less favorable to Purchaser than the Debt Financing Commitment, (y) with conditions to the funding of the Debt Financing not materially less favorable to the interests of Seller than those included in the Debt Financing Commitment, and (z) in an amount sufficient to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby, including the payment of the Estimated HHI Purchaser Price, the Estimated TLM Purchase Price, the amounts to be paid pursuant to Section 2.04 and Section 2.05 (if any) and all related fees and expenses promptly following the

pursuant to which any such alternative source shall have committed to provide Purchaser with any portion of the Debt Financing.  Purchaser shall keep Seller reasonably informed and in reasonable detail with respect to all material developments concerning the Debt Financing.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Purchaser shall promptly notify Seller in writing of (i) any breach or default (or any event or circumstance that, with or without notice, lapse of time or both could reasonably be expected to give rise to any breach or default) by any party to the Debt Financing Commitment of which Purchaser has become aware, which breach or default if not cured could reasonably be expected to result in the unavailability of the Debt Financing or any termination of any of the Debt Financing Commitment, (ii) of the receipt by Purchaser or any of its Affiliates or their respective employees, agents or representatives of any notice or other communication from any Person with respect to any (x) actual or potential breach, default, termination or repudiation by any party to any Financing Commitment or any definitive agreement related thereto or (y) material dispute or disagreement between or among any parties to any Financing Commitment or any definitive agreement related thereto, and (iii) if for any reason Purchaser believes in good faith that (1) there is (or there is reasonably likely to be) a dispute or disagreement between or among any parties to the Debt Financing Commitment or any definitive agreement related thereto or (2) there is a material possibility that it will not be able to obtain all or any portion of the financing contemplated in the Debt Financing Commitment on the terms, in the manner or from the sources contemplated by the Debt Financing Commitment or the definitive agreements related thereto.  References in this Agreement to “Debt Financing” shall include the financing contemplated by the Debt Financing Commitment as

(i)           such Acquired Competitive Business generated less than either (A) thirty percent (30%) of the net revenues of the combined businesses that are being acquired as part of the same transaction or related transactions in which such Acquired Competitive Business is being acquired (measured for the last 12 months for which such financial data are available prior to the execution of the definitive agreement for such acquisition (or the date of the consummation of such acquisition if there is no such definitive agreement)), or (B) $50 million in net revenues (measured for the last 12 months for which such financial data are available prior to the execution of the definitive agreement for such acquisition (or the date of the consummation of such acquisition if there is no such definitive agreement)); and
 
(ii)           Seller shall, only in the event that neither the condition in clause (i)(A) nor the condition in clause (i)(B) of this proviso were satisfied, promptly pursue and thereafter engage in one or more transactions that result in the sale, in a commercially reasonable manner, (or, at Seller’s election in its sole discretion, shut down) of such Acquired Competitive Business to the extent necessary so that the remaining Acquired Competitive Business would have satisfied either the condition in clause (i)(A) or the condition in clause (i)(B) of this proviso (for the avoidance of doubt the denominator to be used for purposes of measuring the condition in clause (i)(A) pursuant to this subparagraph (ii) shall be the same denominator used in subparagraph (i)).
 
Seller represents, stipulates and acknowledges on behalf of itself and the other Restricted Parties that: (x) the restrictive covenants contained in this Section 6.16(a) are a material inducement to Purchaser to enter into this Agreement and consummate the transactions contemplated hereby for which the Restricted Parties will receive a substantial financial benefit, and (y) it would impair the goodwill acquired by Purchaser and reduce the value of the Business obtained by Purchaser through the transactions contemplated hereby if such Restricted Party were to use its ability and knowledge in competition with Purchaser, its Affiliates or the Business, or to otherwise breach the obligations contained in this Section 6.16(a).
 
(b)           During the period commencing on the First Closing Date, or, if later, the Second Closing Date, and ending three (3) years following the First Closing Date, or, if later, the Second Closing Date (provided, that such period shall be extended by any period in which a Restricted Party is in violation of the covenants of this Section 6.16(b)), Seller shall not, and Seller shall cause each other Restricted Party not to, directly or indirectly:
 
(i)           contact, solicit or assist in the solicitation of, employ or retain any individual who is on the applicable Closing Date an employee of the Business, unless such individual is (A) no longer in the employ of the Business, (B) contacted or solicited through general non-targeted solicitation or advertisement in a newspaper, online or through an employment agency or (C) one of four such individuals hired by the Restricted Parties, in the aggregate, during the term covered by this Section 6.16(b)(i) so long such individual was not solicited in violation of this Section 6.16(b)(i); or
 
 
 
95

 
 
(ii)           contact, solicit, assist in the solicitation of, or cause any supplier, licensee or service provider with whom the Business has a commercial relationship, whether by contract or otherwise, to reduce, discontinue or alter in a manner adverse to the Business, such commercial relationship.
 
(c)           During the period commencing on the First Closing Date and ending three (3) years following the First Closing Date, or, if later, the Second Closing Date (provided, that such period shall be extended by any period in which Purchaser or any of its Subsidiaries or Controlled Affiliates is in violation of the covenants of this Section 6.16(c)), Purchaser shall not, and Purchaser shall cause each of its Subsidiaries and Controlled Affiliates not to, directly or indirectly, contact, solicit or assist in the solicitation of, employ or retain any individual who is on the Second Closing Date an employee of TLM Taiwan or Lucky Samoa and identified on Section 6.16(c) of the Seller Disclosure Schedule, unless such individual is (i) no longer in the employ of TLM Taiwan or Lucky Samoa, (ii) contacted or solicited through general non-targeted solicitation or advertisement in a newspaper, online or through an employment agency or (iii) one of four such individuals hired by the Purchaser, its Subsidiaries and Controlled Affiliates, in the aggregate, during the term covered by this Section 6.16(c) so long as such individual was not solicited in violation of this Section 6.16(c).
 
(d)           Each of the parties has carefully read this Section 6.16 and considered the restraints imposed upon, on the one hand, Seller and the other Restricted Parties and, on the other hand, Purchaser and its Subsidiaries and Controlled Affiliates, and is in full accord as to the necessity of such restrictive covenants for the reasonable and proper protection of, on the one hand, Purchaser, its Affiliates and the Business and, on the other hand, Seller and its Affiliates and their respective businesses, and agrees that each commitment and restraint imposed by the provisions of this Section 6.16 is fair and reasonable with respect to subject matter, geographic scope and time period.  It is expressly understood and agreed that although Seller and Purchaser consider such covenants to be fair and reasonable, if a judicial determination is made by a court of competent jurisdiction that the time or any other restriction contained in this Section 6.16 is an invalid or unenforceable restriction against Seller, any of the Restricted Parties, Purchaser or any of its Subsidiaries or Controlled Affiliates, the provisions of this Section 6.16 shall not be rendered void but shall be deemed amended to apply to such maximum time and to such maximum extent as such court may judicially determine or indicate to be enforceable.  Alternatively, if any court of competent jurisdiction finds that any restriction contained in this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable, and such restriction cannot be amended so as to make it enforceable, such finding shall not affect the enforceability of any of the other restrictions contained herein, which shall be given full force and effect without regard to such finding.
 
(e)           Seller acknowledges that it has informed each of the other Restricted Parties of the restrictive covenants contained in this Section 6.16, to the extent applicable, and has directed each of the other Restricted Parties to comply with all of the provisions of this Section 6.16, to the extent applicable.  Seller hereby agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Purchaser Indemnified Persons from and against any and all Losses suffered, incurred or sustained by any of them arising out of or in connection with the breach by any Restricted Party.
 
(f)           Purchaser acknowledges that it has informed each of its Subsidiaries and Controlled Affiliates of the restrictive covenants contained in this Section 6.16, to the extent applicable, and has directed each of its Subsidiaries and Controlled Affiliates to comply with all of the provisions of this Section 6.16, to the extent applicable.  Purchaser hereby agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Seller Indemnified Persons from and against any and all Losses suffered, incurred or sustained by any of them arising out of or in connection with the breach by any Subsidiaries or Controlled Affiliates of Purchaser.
 
Section 6.17                      Pre-Closing Restructuring.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, prior to the consummation of the applicable Closing, Seller shall, and shall cause its applicable Subsidiaries to perform the actions set forth in Exhibit M hereto (the “Pre-Closing Restructuring”) with respect to the Excluded Transferred Entity Assets and the Excluded TLM Assets held by TLM Philippines.  For the avoidance of doubt, the Pre-Closing Restructuring shall be completed by Seller or its applicable Subsidiaries prior to the applicable Closing Date.

Section 6.19                      Notification of Certain Matters.  During the period following the date hereof until the earlier of the Second Closing Date and the termination of this Agreement pursuant to its terms, each of Seller and Purchaser shall give prompt notice to the other party upon receiving Knowledge of (a) any notices, complaints, investigations or hearings (or communications indicating that the same may be contemplated) of any Governmental Authorities with respect to the transactions contemplated hereby or by the Ancillary Agreements, (b) any written notices or other written communications from any third Persons alleging that the consent of such Person is or may be required with respect to the transactions contemplated hereby or by the Ancillary Agreements, (c) the institution of any material Action involving Seller or any of its Subsidiaries or Purchaser, or (d) any material event, development, or occurrence (including any violation of Section 4.05(b)) that would reasonably be expected to give rise to a failure of a condition precedent set forth in Article IX.
 
Section 6.20                      Exclusivity.
 
(a)           During the period following the date hereof until the earlier of the applicable Closing Date and the termination of this Agreement pursuant to its terms, Seller shall not, and shall direct its Affiliates and Subsidiaries, and each of their respective Representatives not to directly or indirectly:  (i) encourage, facilitate, initiate, solicit or make any proposal or offer with respect to or enter into a merger, acquisition, consolidation, recapitalization, liquidation, dissolution, equity investment or similar transaction involving the Business, or any purchase of all or a substantial portion of the assets of either the HHI Business or the TLM Business (a “Proposal”) with any Person other than Purchaser; (ii) other than informing Persons of the existence of this Section 6.20 or communicating that such Person is not permitted to engage in such activity at such time, engage in any negotiations concerning, or provide any information or data concerning the Business to, or have any discussions with, any Person other than Purchaser that has made a Proposal; or (iii) otherwise cooperate in any way with, or assist or participate in, facilitate or encourage, any effort or attempt by any Person other than Purchaser to do or seek any of the foregoing.
 
(b)           Seller shall notify Purchaser orally and in writing promptly (but in any event no later than twenty-four (24) hours) after receipt by Seller, its Affiliates or Subsidiaries, or any of their respective Representatives of any Proposal from any Person other than Purchaser or any request for non-public information relating to the Business.  Such notice shall indicate the identity of the Person making the Proposal, or intending to make a Proposal or requesting non-public information or access to the books and records of the Business, the material terms of any such Proposal, or modification or amendment to such Proposal and copies of any written Proposals or amendments and supplements thereto.  Seller shall keep Purchaser informed, on a current basis, of any material changes in the status and any material changes or modifications in the material terms of any such Proposal or request.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, Seller shall not be required to take any action that would violate any existing confidentiality agreement.
 
(c)           Seller shall, and shall direct its Affiliates and Subsidiaries, and each of their respective Representatives to, immediately terminate all discussions or negotiations with all Persons other than Purchaser who have made Proposals that are currently ongoing and shall promptly request the prompt return or destruction of any confidential information provided to (and terminate the VDR access of) such Person in connection with such Person’s consideration of a possible Proposal.

Section 6.22                      Assistance with Form 8-K Reporting Obligation.
 
(a)           Purchaser shall file the Purchaser’s Closing Form 8-K with the SEC no sooner than the last day on which it is due; provided, however, that if the First Closing occurs on or after February 5, 2013 and on or before February 11, 2013, Purchaser shall use its reasonable best efforts to file the Purchaser’s Closing Form 8-K with the SEC no later than February 11, 2013; provided, further, that if the First Closing occurs on or after March 25, 2013 and on or before March 29, 2013, Purchaser shall use its reasonable best efforts to file the Purchaser’s Closing Form 8-K with the SEC no later than March 29, 2013.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, Purchaser’s failure to file the Purchaser’s Closing Form 8-K within the time periods specified above shall not relieve the Seller of its obligations under Section 6.22(b).
 
(b)           If Purchaser’s Closing Form 8-K is filed with the SEC on or before March 29, 2013, Seller shall, and shall cause each of its Subsidiaries to, use its reasonable best efforts to obtain, within 71 days after the date of the filing of Purchaser’s Closing Form 8-K, an unqualified audit opinion from Ernst & Young LLP with respect to the financial statements of the HHI Business as of and for the nine months ended September 29, 2012, if such opinion has not been previously provided.  If Purchaser’s Closing Form 8-K is filed with the SEC after March 29, 2013, Seller shall, and shall cause each of its Subsidiaries to, use its reasonable best efforts to obtain, within 71 days after the date of the filing of Purchaser’s Closing Form 8-K, an unqualified audit opinion from Ernst & Young LLP with respect to the financial statements of the HHI Business as of and for the year ended December 29, 2012.  Seller shall use its reasonable best efforts to provide the Purchaser with financial statements and other information with respect to the Business necessary to prepare, and will reasonably cooperate with Purchaser’s preparation of, pro forma financial statements specified in Form 8-K and required to be included in such amendment.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that the audited financial statements have been previously provided to Purchaser, such financial statements and accompanying audit report may be filed with the SEC at any time permitted by Form 8-K, and in all cases, Seller shall, and shall cause each of its Subsidiaries to, use its reasonable best efforts to obtain the consent of Ernst & Young LLP to the filing of the relevant audit opinion.  Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that Seller shall not be deemed to have made any representations or warranties with respect to such financial statements, except that such financial statements will be prepared in good faith and in all material respects in accordance with the books of account and records of the HHI Business.  Purchaser shall, promptly upon the written request of Seller, reimburse Seller and its Subsidiaries, without any right to set off or counterclaim, for all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket costs that have been incurred by Seller and its Subsidiaries (including those of their respective Representatives, but not including any allocated Seller overhead charged to such Representatives) in connection with preparing such financial statements and obtaining such audit opinions.
 
(c)           Unless and until the Second Closing Provisions have been validly terminated pursuant to Section 11.03, Seller shall, and shall cause each of its Subsidiaries to, use its reasonable best efforts to ensure that the audited financial statements and corresponding unqualified audit opinions with respect thereto as of and for the nine-month period ended September 29, 2012 or as of and for the period ended December 29, 2012, as applicable, provided pursuant to Section 6.22(b) shall reflect, on a combined basis with the HHI Business, the financial condition and results of operations of TLM Taiwan and its Subsidiaries from Seller's acquisition of TLM Taiwan on August 15, 2012 through September 29, 2012 or December 29, 2012, as applicable.

(d)           To the extent not otherwise already provided and if requested by Purchaser in writing prior to May 15, 2013, for the purposes of filing a registration statement under the Securities Act, Seller shall, and shall cause each of its subsidiaries to, use its reasonable best efforts to provide the Purchaser as soon as reasonably practicable following such request financial statements covering periods subsequent to September 29, 2012 through and in any case no later than March 30, 2013 required to be included in a registration statement under the Securities Act together with other information with respect to the Business necessary to prepare (and will reasonably cooperate with Purchaser’s preparation of) pro forma financial statements required to be included therein; and will use its reasonable best efforts to obtain, if so required under the Securities Act, an unqualified audit opinion from Ernst & Young LLP with respect to such financial statements and such firm's consent to the filing of such report.  Purchaser shall, promptly upon the written request of Seller, reimburse Seller and its Subsidiaries, without any right to set off or counterclaim, for all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket costs that have been incurred by Seller and its Subsidiaries (including those of their respective Representatives, but not including any allocated Seller overhead charged to such Representatives) in connection with preparing such financial statements and obtaining such audit opinions.

(b)           Prior to the Second Closing, the parties shall jointly prepare (i) a detailed separation plan and (ii) joint operating budget for the TLM Business and the business of TLM Taiwan, which shall be in effect and binding on the parties from and after the Second Closing and until three (3) years from the Second Closing Date unless amended, modified, replaced or supplemented from time to time by mutual agreement of the parties after the Second Closing Date (the “TLM Separation Plan”); provided, however, if the parties fail to prepare or otherwise agree on the TLM Separation Plan by the time the Second Closing is to occur pursuant to Section 2.06(b), Exhibit O shall constitute the TLM Separation Plan for all purposes hereunder.
 
ARTICLE VII
 
EMPLOYEE MATTERS
 
Section 7.01                      Offers of Employment.
 
(a)           Prior to the applicable Closing Date, Seller shall update Section 1.01(g), Section 1.01(j) and Section 1.01(m) of the Seller Disclosure Schedule to reflect new hires and terminations of employment between the date hereof and the tenth Business Day prior to the applicable Closing Date.  On the applicable Closing Date, Seller shall provide Purchaser with a list of all employees on such schedule whose employment terminated following the delivery of the updated schedule pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence.  No employees shall be hired within ten Business Days prior to the applicable Closing Date without Seller’s consent (which shall not be unreasonably withheld).  Prior to the applicable Closing Date, Purchaser shall, or shall cause one of its applicable Affiliates to, offer employment to each HHI Employee and Deferred Transfer Employee listed on Section 1.01(g) and Section 1.01(m) of the Seller Disclosure Schedule (as such list is updated pursuant to the first sentence of this Section 7.01(a)), and Purchaser may offer employment to each Listed Employee, in each case who is on the employment rolls of Seller or a Subsidiary of Seller immediately prior to the applicable Closing Date and (i) is actively employed on such date or is absent from employment due to vacation or temporary illness not reasonably expected to exceed five (5) days (the “Current Employees”) or (ii)(x) is absent from work due to short or long-term disability or an authorized leave of absence, (y) has the right to return to employment following expiration of such absence under applicable Law, in each case effective as of the expiration of the period of absence, and (z) returns to employment within one hundred eighty (180) days following the applicable Closing Date or such longer period as is permitted under applicable Law in respect of Employees on military leave who are listed on Section 7.01(a) of the Seller Disclosure Schedule (the “Leave Employees” and, together with the Current Employees, the “Closing Date Employees”).  Purchaser is not required to offer employment to any Listed Employee, but if it elects to offer employment, it must do so in accordance with the terms set forth in this Article VII.  All such offers of employment to (i) each Current Employee shall provide for employment with Purchaser or an applicable Affiliate of Purchaser to commence effective as of 11:59 P.M., local time, on the applicable Closing Date and (ii) each Leave Employee shall provide for employment with Purchaser or an applicable Affiliate of Purchaser to commence at the expiration of such Leave Employee’s leave or period of disability.  All such offers of employment shall be made in accordance with the applicable provisions of this
 
 
 
99

 
 
Section 7.01.  Each Closing Date Employee who accepts Purchaser’s or one of its Affiliate’s offer of employment and whose employment with Purchaser or one of its Affiliates commences as of the applicable Closing Date, or with respect to a Leave Employee, upon the expiration of his leave of absence, together with each HHI Employee or TLM Employee, as applicable, employed by a Transferred Entity and each Closing Date Employee whose employment is transferred to Purchaser or an Affiliate of Purchaser by operation of Law, shall be referred to herein as a “Transferred Employee”; provided, that a Leave Employee shall not be treated as a Transferred Employee until the expiration of the Leave Employee’s period of absence, and the date on which any such Transferred Employee commences employment with Purchaser or one of its Affiliates shall be referred to herein as the Transferred Employee’s “Transfer Date.”  For the avoidance of doubt, in no event shall any Employee on a leave of absence from employment become a Transferred Employee if such leave of absence extends beyond one hundred eighty (180) days following the applicable Closing Date other than employees on military leave who are listed on Section 7.01(a) of the Seller Disclosure Schedule.  For the avoidance of doubt, the Transfer Date for all HHI Employees and Listed Employees other than Leave Employees shall be the Closing Date.  In the event that the employment of an HHI Employee or TLM Employee transfers automatically to Purchaser or its Affiliate upon the occurrence of the applicable Closing Date by operation of Law, Purchaser and Seller agree to take, or cause their respective Affiliates to take, all actions required under applicable Law and all other actions as are reasonably necessary or appropriate such that the employment of such HHI Employee or TLM Employee will transfer to Purchaser or its Affiliate automatically as of the Transfer Date.  A Current Employee who arrives at his then applicable place of employment in the Business on the first Business Day immediately following the applicable Closing Date shall be deemed for all purposes of this Agreement to have accepted Purchaser’s or one of its Affiliate’s offer of employment for all purposes of this Agreement. Offers pursuant to this Section 7.01(a) shall comply in all respects with such applicable Law (including with respect to compensation and benefits) and may, if Seller reasonably requests, make employment contingent upon the Transferred Employee’s waiver of any and all claims or right to severance in connection with the transfer of employment.
 
(b)           With respect to each U.S. Transferred Employee, Purchaser or its Affiliates shall provide such U.S. Transferred Employee with employment in a position that is substantially comparable to such U.S. Transferred Employee’s position immediately prior to the applicable Closing Date and, for the one-year period immediately following the applicable Closing Date, Purchaser or its Affiliates shall provide to each U.S. Transferred Employee (A) cash bonus opportunity and wage rates, as applicable, that are substantially comparable to those provided to such Transferred Employee immediately prior to the applicable Closing Date and (B) employee benefits that are substantially comparable in the aggregate to the benefits provided by Seller and its Affiliates immediately prior to the applicable Closing Date, without regard, in each case of (A) and (B), to equity-based compensation, defined benefit pension benefits, or post-termination health and welfare benefits.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing contemplated by this Agreement shall be construed as requiring either Purchaser or any of its Affiliates to be obligated to continue the employment of any U.S. Transferred Employee for any period after the applicable Transfer Date
 
(c)           With respect to each U.S. Transferred Employee whose employment terminates during the one-year period immediately following the applicable Closing Date, Purchaser or its Affiliates shall provide severance benefits that are no less favorable than the better of (i) those severance or termination benefits applicable to such Transferred Employee as of immediately prior to the applicable Closing Date under a Benefit Plan disclosed and made available to Purchaser as of the date hereof in accordance with Section 4.09(a), and (ii) those provided under Purchaser’s severance plan, program, policy or practice (whether contractual or otherwise) applicable to such Transferred Employee on the date of such U.S. Transferred Employee’s termination.  For the avoidance of doubt, if during such one-year period, a Transferred Employee’s employment should terminate as a result of his or her desire not to accept a relocation that would result in a commute of more than fifty (50) miles from his or her office immediately prior to the applicable Closing Date, then Purchaser will be obligated to pay such Transferred Employee severance as described in the immediately preceding sentence.
 
 
 
 
100

 
 
(d)           With respect to each U.S. Transferred Employee, effective from and after the applicable Transfer Date, Purchaser or its Affiliates shall (i) recognize for all purposes (other than benefit accrual under a defined benefit pension plan or retiree medical plan) under all plans, programs and arrangements established or maintained by Purchaser or its Affiliates for the benefit of the U.S. Transferred Employees, service with Seller and its Affiliates through the applicable Transfer Date to the extent that such service was recognized under the corresponding HHI Benefit Plan or TLM Benefit Plan covering such U.S. Transferred Employees, including for purposes of eligibility, vesting and benefit levels and accruals, (ii) with respect to self-insured Purchaser Benefit Plans, waive, and with respect to insured Purchaser Benefit Plans, use commercially reasonable efforts to cause the applicable third-party insurer to waive, any pre-existing condition exclusion, actively-at-work requirement or waiting period under all employee health and other welfare benefit plans established or maintained by Seller or its Affiliates for the benefit of the Transferred Employees, except to the extent that such pre-existing condition, exclusion, requirement or waiting period would have applied to such individual under the corresponding HHI Benefit Plan or TLM Benefit Plan and (iii) with respect to self-insured Purchaser Benefit Plans, provide, or with respect to insured Purchaser Benefit Plans, use commercially reasonable efforts to cause the applicable third-party insurer to provide, full credit for any co-payments, deductibles or similar payments made or incurred on or prior to the applicable Closing Date for the plan year in which the applicable Closing occurs.
 
(e)           Seller and Purchaser intend that the transactions contemplated by this Agreement should not constitute a separation, termination or severance of employment of any Transferred Employee prior to or upon the occurrence of the Transfer Date, including for purposes of any HHI Benefit Plan, Listed Employee Benefit Plan or TLM Benefit Plan that provides for separation, termination or severance benefits or that requires an Employee to repay his employer any amounts, including sign-on bonuses, tuition reimbursements and housing differential payments, upon a termination of employment, and that each such Transferred Employee will have continuous and uninterrupted employment immediately before and immediately after the Transfer Date, and Seller and Purchaser shall, and shall cause their respective Affiliates to, comply with any requirements under applicable Law to ensure the same.  Purchaser or its Affiliates shall bear all of the liabilities, obligations and costs relating to any claims made by any Employee for any statutory, common law, contractual (to the extent made pursuant to an HHI Benefit Plan, Listed Employee Benefit Plan, TLM Benefit Plan, or other arrangement permitted by Section 6.01(b)(x)), and any other legally mandated payment obligations (including any compensation payable during a mandatory termination notice period and any payments pursuant to a Judgment of a court having jurisdiction over the parties hereto but specifically excluding any claims for benefits or pension benefits under HHI Benefit Plans, Listed Employee Benefit Plan or TLM Benefit Plans with respect to service prior to the applicable Closing Date with Seller and its Affiliates) and for any other claim, cost, liability or obligation (whether related to compensation, benefits or otherwise), in each case, arising solely out of or in connection with the failure of Purchaser or its Affiliates to make an offer of employment to or continue the employment of any Employee in accordance with, and to the extent mandated by, the terms of this Agreement or any other individual who is entitled to transfer automatically to Purchaser or its Affiliates upon the occurrence of the applicable Closing by operation of Law, in each case, in accordance with this Agreement or Applicable Law.
 
(f)           Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary (including Section 6.06), Seller shall be, or shall cause its Affiliates to be, responsible, either directly or through insurance policies maintained by Seller or its Affiliates, for all covered medical, vision, dental, prescription drug and other welfare plan expenses incurred, and claims for disability income benefits made, by any Transferred Employee or his or her dependents, on or prior to the Transfer Date.  Purchaser shall be, or shall cause its Affiliates to be, responsible for all covered medical, vision, dental, prescription drug and other welfare plan expenses incurred, and claims for disability income benefits made, by any Transferred Employee or his or her dependents after the Transfer Date.  Except in the event of any claim for workers compensation benefits, for purposes of this Agreement, the following claims and liabilities shall be deemed to be incurred as follows: (1) medical, vision, dental and/or prescription drug benefits (including hospital expenses), upon provision of the services, materials or supplies constituting any such benefits and (2) short- and long-term disability, life, accidental death and dismemberment and business travel accident insurance benefits, upon the death, illness, injury or accident giving rise to such benefits.  Seller and its Affiliates shall be responsible for all claims for workers compensation benefits that are incurred either (i) prior to the Transfer Date by any Transferred Employee or (ii) on, prior to, or following the relevant Closing Date by any Employee who does not become a Transferred Employee.  Purchaser and its Affiliates shall be responsible for all claims for workers compensation benefits that are incurred on or after the Transfer Date by any Transferred Employee.  A claim for workers compensation benefits shall be deemed incurred when the event giving rise to the claim occurs.

TAX MATTERS
 
Section 8.01                      Transfer Taxes.  Seller and Purchaser shall each bear one-half of the costs of all Transfer Taxes imposed by any Governmental Authority, regardless of the Person on whom such Taxes are imposed, resulting from this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby.  Purchaser shall be responsible for the timely filing of any Tax Return relating to Transfer Taxes, except to the extent that Seller is responsible for the filing of any such Tax Return under applicable Law. Seller shall reasonably cooperate with Purchaser and, subject to the other terms of this Agreement, shall take any action reasonably requested by Purchaser that does not cause Seller to incur any cost or material inconvenience in order to minimize Transfer Taxes.
 
Section 8.02                      Tax Characterization of Adjustments.  Seller and Purchaser agree to treat all payments made either to or for the benefit of the other following the respective Closings (including any payments made under any indemnity provisions of this Agreement and payments made pursuant to Section 2.12) as adjustments to the HHI Purchase Price or the TLM Purchase Price, as applicable, for all Tax purposes, and that such treatment shall govern for purposes hereof, except as otherwise required by applicable Law.
 
Section 8.03                      Real Estate and Property Taxes.  For purposes of this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements, any real estate Tax, personal property and intangible property Taxes (“Property Taxes”) or similar ad valorem obligations with respect to the Transferred Assets applicable to periods beginning before the applicable Closing Date, and ending after the applicable Closing Date (“Apportioned Obligations”) shall be allocated between Seller and Purchaser pro rata based on the number of days that occur on or before the applicable Closing Date, on the one hand, and after the applicable Closing Date, on the other hand.  Each party hereto shall cooperate in assuring that, to the extent practicable, Apportioned Obligations the payment of which is due on or prior to the applicable Closing Date are billed directly to and paid by Seller, and that Apportioned Obligations whose payment is due after the applicable Closing Date are billed directly to and paid by Purchaser.  On the applicable Closing Date, Seller shall deliver to Purchaser any bill received by it prior to the applicable Closing Date in respect of any Apportioned Obligations not yet due and payable and Seller and Purchaser shall each present or cause to be presented a statement to the other setting forth the amount of reimbursement to which each is entitled under this Section 8.03 (together with such supporting evidence as may be reasonably requested), and they shall calculate the amount by which such reimbursement owed to one party exceeds that owed to the other (the “Proration Amount”), and on such date the Proration Amount so determined shall be paid by the party owing it to the other.  In the event that any party shall thereafter make a payment for which it is entitled to reimbursement under this Section 8.03, the party so obligated to make such reimbursement under this Section 8.03 shall make such reimbursement promptly upon the presentation of such supporting evidence as may be reasonably requested.  In the event that any refund, rebate or similar payment is received by Purchaser or Seller for any Property Taxes or similar ad valorem obligations which are Apportioned Obligations, the parties hereto agree that such payment will be apportioned between Seller and Purchaser on the basis of their respective ownership of the taxed Assets during the assessment period.  In the event that it is determined subsequent to the applicable Closing Date that any additional Property Taxes or similar ad valorem obligations which are Apportioned Obligations are required to be paid, the parties hereto agree that such additional taxes will be apportioned between Seller and Purchaser on the basis of their respective ownership of the taxed Assets during the assessment period.
