ARTICLE 5
COVENANTS

The Parties agree as follows with respect to the period from and after the execution of this Agreement.

(a)

Notices and Consents. Each of the Parties will give any notices to third parties, and will use its reasonable best efforts to obtain (and will cause each of its Subsidiaries to use its reasonable best efforts to obtain) any third party consents required in connection herewith.

(c)

Regulatory Matters and Approvals. Each of the Parties will give any notices to, make any filings with, and use its reasonable best efforts to obtain any authorizations, consents, and approvals of governments and governmental agencies in connection with the matters referred to in Section 3 and Section 4 above. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing:

(1)

Compliance with Securities Laws. The parties shall endeavor to comply with applicable federal securities laws regarding the transactions contemplated by this Agreement including the timely filing of a Current Report on Form 8-K.

(2)

Compliance with Nevada General Corporation Law. Parent will cause a majority in interest of its stockholders to approve and adopt this Agreement and the approval of the transactions herein contemplated in accordance with the Nevada Corporation General Corporation Law.

Parent contemplates effecting the private placements of its securities as set forth on Schedule 5 (d) attached hereto.

(e)

Full Access. The Parties will permit representatives of the Parties (including legal counsel and accountants) to have full access to all premises, properties, personnel, books, records (including tax records), contracts, and documents of or pertaining to each Party (the “Confidential Information”). Each Party acknowledges the confidential and proprietary nature of the Confidential Information, and agrees to hold and keep the same as provided for in this Section 5(e), and otherwise agrees to each and every restriction in this Section 5(e).

(1)

Restricted Use of Confidential Information. The recipient (“Recipient”) agrees that the Confidential Information (a) will be kept confidential by the Recipient and the Recipient’s representatives and (b) without limiting the foregoing, will not be disclosed by the Recipient or the Recipient’s representatives to any person except as expressly otherwise permitted by the terms of this Section 5(e). It is understood that the Recipient may disclose Confidential Information to only those of the Recipient’s representatives who (i) require such material for the purpose of evaluating the transaction, and (ii) are informed by the Recipient of the confidential nature of the Confidential Information and the obligations of this Section 5(e). The Recipient further agrees that the Recipient and the Recipient’s representatives will not use any of the Confidential Information either for any reason or purpose other than to evaluate the Merger or in any way detrimental to the provider of such Confidential Information (the “Provider”) (it being acknowledged that any use other than evaluation of and negotiating the Merger will be deemed detrimental). The Recipient also agrees to be responsible for enforcing the terms of this Section 5(e) as to the Recipient’s representatives and the confidentiality of the Confidential Information and to take such action, legal or otherwise, to the extent necessary to cause them to comply with the terms and conditions of this Section 5(e) and thereby prevent any disclosure of the Confidential Information by any of the Recipient’s representatives (including all actions that the Recipient would take to protect its own trade secrets and confidential information).

(2)

Exceptions. All of the foregoing obligations and restrictions do not apply to that part of the Confidential Information that the Recipient demonstrates (a) was or becomes generally available to the public other than as a result of a disclosure by the Recipient or the Recipient’s representatives or (b) was available, or becomes available, to the Recipient on a non-confidential basis prior to its disclosure to the Recipient by the Provider or a Provider representative, but only if (i) the source of such information is not bound by a confidentiality agreement with the Provider or is not otherwise prohibited from transmitting the information to the Recipient or the Recipient’s representatives by a contractual, legal, fiduciary, or other obligation and (ii) the Recipient provides the Provider with written notice of such prior possession either (A) prior to the negotiation of the Merger or (B) if the Recipient later becomes aware of (through disclosure to the Recipient or otherwise through the Recipient’s work on the Merger) any aspect of the Confidential Information of which the Recipient had prior possession, promptly upon the Recipient becoming aware of such aspect.

(3)

Required Disclosure. The Recipient or such Recipient’s representative may furnish that portion (and only that portion) of the Confidential Information that is required to disclose under the applicable federal and state securities laws; provided, however, that the Recipient and the Recipient’s representatives must use reasonable efforts to obtain reliable assurance that confidential treatment will be accorded any Confidential Information so disclosed.

(4)

Return of Confidential Information. If this Agreement is terminated for any reason, then (a) the Recipient (i) will promptly deliver to the Provider all documents or other materials furnished by the Provider or any Provider representative to the Recipient or the Recipient’s representatives constituting Confidential Information, together with all copies and summaries thereof in the possession or under the control of the Recipient or the Recipient’s representatives, and (ii) will destroy materials generated by the Recipient or the Recipient’s representatives that include or refer to any part of the Confidential Information, without retaining a copy of any such material or (b) alternatively, if the Provider requests or gives its prior written consent to the Recipient’s request, the Recipient will destroy all documents or other matters constituting Confidential Information in the possession or under the control of the Recipient or the Recipient’s representatives. Any such destruction pursuant to the foregoing must be confirmed by the Recipient in writing to the Provider (such confirmation must include a list of the destroyed materials).

(5)

Remedies. The Recipient agrees to indemnify and hold the Provider and its shareholders harmless from any damages, loss, cost, or liability (including legal fees and the cost of enforcing this indemnity) arising out of or resulting from any unauthorized use or disclosure by the Recipient or the Recipient’s representatives of the Confidential Information or other violation of this Section 5(e). In addition, because an award of money damages (whether pursuant to the foregoing sentence or otherwise) would be inadequate for any breach of this Section 5(e) by the Recipient or the Recipient’s representatives and any such breach would cause the Provider irreparable harm, the Recipient also agrees that, in the event of any breach or threatened breach of this Section 5(e), the Provider will also be entitled, without the requirement of posting a bond or other security, to equitable relief, including injunctive relief and specific performance. Such remedies will not be the exclusive remedies for any breach of this Agreement but will be in addition to all other remedies available at law or equity to the Provider.

Parent further acknowledges that it has had the opportunity to review the business plan of Company and to make such further inquiries of Company concerning its business, operations and prospects as Parent deemed to be appropriate.

(f)

Notice of Developments. Each Party will give prompt written notice to the other of any material adverse development causing a breach of any of its own representations and warranties in Section 3 and Section 4 above.

(g)

Exclusivity. The Parties will not solicit, initiate, or encourage the submission of any proposal or offer from any Person relating to a transaction similar to the transactions contemplated herein (including any acquisition structured as a merger, consolidation, or share exchange); provided, however, the Parties and their directors and officers will remain free to participate in any discussions or negotiations regarding, furnish any information with respect to, assist or participate in, or facilitate in any other manner any effort or attempt by any person to do or seek any of the foregoing to the extent their fiduciary duties may require. The Parties shall notify the other Parties immediately if any person makes any proposal, offer, inquiry, or contact with respect to any of the foregoing.

(h)

Disclosure. Each Party to this Agreement shall ensure that from the date hereof and through the Effective Time, each Party and its respective representatives and affiliates keep strictly confidential the existence and terms of this Agreement, except as otherwise required by any applicable laws. If any Party is required by law to make any disclosure regarding the transactions contemplated herein, such Party advises the other Party, at least three (3) days (to the extent practicable) before making such disclosure, of the nature and content of the intended disclosure.

(i)

Stock Option Plan. The Parties intend that Parent shall adopt and cause stockholders to ratify and approve a stock option plan for the benefit of, and to provide further incentives to, employees, directors and other service providers of Company.


(j)

Name Change.  On the Effective Time or as soon thereafter as may be practicable, Parent shall change its name to “House of Taylor Jewelry, Inc.”

No waiver by any Party of any provision of this Agreement or any default, misrepresentation, or breach of warranty or covenant hereunder, whether intentional or not, shall be valid unless the same shall be in writing and signed by the Party making such waiver nor shall such waiver be deemed to extend to any prior or subsequent default, misrepresentation, or breach of warranty or covenant hereunder or affect in any way any rights arising by virtue of any prior or subsequent such default, misrepresentation, or breach of warranty or covenant.

(j)

Severability. Any term or provision of this Agreement that is invalid or unenforceable in any situation in any jurisdiction shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining terms and provisions hereof or the validity or enforceability of the offending term or provision in any other situation or in any other jurisdiction.

(k)

Expenses. Each of the Parties will bear its own costs and expenses (including legal fees and expenses) incurred in connection with this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby.

(l)

Construction. The Parties have participated jointly in the negotiation and drafting of this Agreement. In the event an ambiguity or question of intent or interpretation arises, this Agreement shall be construed as if drafted jointly by the Parties and no presumption or burden of proof shall arise favoring or disfavoring 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 otherwise requires. The word “including” shall mean including without limitation.

(m)

Survival of Representations and Covenants. All covenants and obligations of the Parties shall survive and continue for the applicable statute of limitations period or periods legally applicable to them. All representations and warranties made by Parent shall survive the Closing Date for a period of one (1) year following the Closing Date; provided, however, Sections 4(e), 4(m), 4(n), and 4(p) shall survive for the applicable statue of limitations period. Any Party‘s right to commence a claim for indemnification under Section 8(n) for a breach of any representation or warranty shall be made prior to the date, if any, on which the survival period for such representation and warranty expires.

(n)

Indemnification.

(1)

From and after the Closing Date, 2 FeetCan LLC and 412S LLC, each a Nevada limited liability company and collectively the “Parent Shareholders”, jointly and severally, hereby agree, by execution at the place provided below, to indemnify and hold harmless each and every other party to this Agreement, jointly and severally, and (if any) each other party’s respective successors and assigns, and their respective officers, directors, employees, stockholders, agents, affiliates and any person who controls any of such persons within the meaning of the Securities Act or the Securities Exchange Act (each, an “Indemnified Person”) from and against any liabilities, claims, demands, judgments, losses, costs, damages, fines, penalties, settlements, awards, fees, taxes, charges or expenses whatsoever (including reasonable attorneys’, consultants’ and other professional fees and disbursements of every kind, nature and description incurred by such Indemnified Person in connection therewith, including consequential and punitive damages) (collectively, “Damages”) that such Indemnified Person may sustain, suffer or incur and that result from, arise out of or relate to any action or omission of Parent from February 16, 2005 through Closing Date or that result from a material breach of any of the respective representations, warranties, covenants or agreements of Parent contained in this Agreement, provided that this indemnity shall extend to all amounts that Parent may be required to pay as to approximately $53,000 of the accounts payable that are reflected within the Condensed Balance Sheet of the Parent for the quarterly period ended December 31, 2004 and including, but not limited to, those payments under paragraph (m)(2) of Article 4, and provided further that the aggregate amount of any and all such indemnification shall not exceed $500,000. For the purposes hereunder “a material breach” shall be one that results in Damages of at least $10,000.

(2)

Any Indemnified Person who desires to seek indemnification under any part of this Section 8(n) shall give written notice in accordance with this section in reasonable detail (a “Claim Notice”) to each party responsible or alleged to be responsible for indemnification hereunder (an “ Indemnitor”) and to the Indemnified Person’s corporate counsel. Such notice shall briefly explain the nature of the claim, the parties known to be involved, the amount of Damages, if known, and method of computation thereof. If the matter to which a claim relates shall not have been resolved as of the date of the Claim Notice, the Indemnified Person shall estimate the amount of the claim in the Claim Notice, but also specify therein that the claim has not yet been liquidated (an “Unliquidated Claim”). If an Indemnified Party gives a Claim Notice for an Unliquidated Claim, the Indemnified Party shall also give a second Claim Notice (the “Liquidated Claim Notice “) within sixty (60) days after the matter giving rise to the claim becomes finally resolved, and the Second Claim Notice shall specify the amount of the claim. Each Indemnitor to which a Claim Notice is given shall respond to any Indemnified Party that has given a Claim Notice (a “Claim Response”) within thirty (30) days (the “Response Period”) after the later of (i) the date that the Claim Notice is given or (ii) if a Claim Notice is first given with respect to an Unliquidated Claim, the date on which the Liquidated Claim Notice is given. Any Claim Response shall specify whether or not the Indemnitor giving the Claim Response disputes the claim described in the Claim Notice. If any Indemnitor fails to give a Claim Response within the Response Period, such Indemnitor shall be deemed not to dispute the claim described in the related Claim Notice. If any Indemnitor elects not to dispute a claim described in a Claim Notice, whether by failing to give a timely Claim Response in accordance with the terms hereof or otherwise, then the amount of such claim shall be conclusively deemed to be an obligation of such Indemnitor. If the Indemnitor advises the Indemnified Person within the Response Period that it objects to such claim, the Indemnitor and the Indemnified Person shall promptly meet and use their best efforts to settle the dispute in writing within sixty (60) days.

If any Indemnitor shall be obligated to indemnify an Indemnified Person pursuant to this section, such Indemnitor shall pay to such Indemnified Person the amount to which such Indemnified Person shall be entitled within fifteen (15) business days after (i) a disputed claim is determined in favor of the Indemnified Person pursuant to this section of this Agreement, or (ii) the Response Period has expired without a response which satisfies the provisions of this section from an Indemnitor. If any Indemnitor fails to pay all or part of any indemnification obligation when due, then such Indemnitor shall also be obligated to pay to the applicable Indemnified Person interest on the unpaid amount for each day during which the obligation remains unpaid at an annual rate equal to the Prime Rate plus nine percent.

(3)

An Indemnified Person that desires to seek indemnification under any part of this section with respect to any actions, suits or other administrative or judicial proceedings (each, an “Action”) that may be instituted by a third party shall give each Indemnitor prompt notice of a third party’s institution of such Action. After such notice, any Indemnitor may, or if so requested by such Indemnified Person, any Indemnitor shall, participate in such Action or assume the defense thereof, with counsel satisfactory to such Indemnified Person by notifying the Indemnified Person in writing within fifteen (15) days after the Indemnified Person has given notice of an Action, the Indemnitor conducts the defense of the Action actively and diligently and the Indemnitor provides the Indemnified Person with evidence reasonably acceptable to the Indemnified Person that the Indemnitor will have the financial resources to defend against the Action and fulfill its indemnification obligations hereunder; provided, however, that such Indemnified Person shall have the right to participate, at its own expense, in the defense of such Action unless (A) the Indemnitor has agreed in writing to pay such fees and expenses, (B) the Indemnitor has failed to assume the defense and employ counsel as provided herein or (C) a claim shall have been brought or asserted against the Indemnitor and Indemnified Person, and such Indemnified Person shall have been advised in writing by counsel that there may be one or more factual or legal defenses available to it that are in conflict with those available to Indemnitor, in which case such co-counsel will be at the expense of the Indemnitor; and provided, further, that the Indemnified Person shall not consent to the entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement, except with the written consent of the Indemnitor (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld). Any failure to give prompt notice under this section shall not bar an Indemnified Party’s right to claim indemnification under this section, except to the extent that an Indemnitor shall have been harmed by such failure.

(4)

Any claim by any party for indemnification shall not be adversely affected by any investigation by, or opportunity to, investigate afforded to any such person, nor shall such a claim be adversely affected by any such person’s knowledge on or before the Closing Date of any breach or of any state of facts that may give rise to such a breach. The waiver of any condition based on the accuracy of any representation or warranty, or on the performance of, or compliance with, any covenant or obligation, will not adversely affect the right to indemnification, payment of Damages or other remedy based on such representations, warranties, covenants or obligations.

Nothing herein shall be deemed to prevent an Indemnified Person from making a claim hereunder for potential or contingent claims or demands (a “Contingent Claim”) provided the Claim Notice sets forth the specific basis for any such Contingent Claim to the extent then feasible and the Indemnified Person has reasonable grounds to believe that such a claim may be made.

The indemnification rights under this section are independent of and in addition to such rights and remedies as the parties may have at law or in equity or otherwise for any misrepresentation, breach of warranty or failure to fulfill any agreement or covenant hereunder on the part of any party, including the right to seek specific performance, rescission or restitution, none of which rights or remedies shall be affected or diminished by this section. The indemnification rights among the Parties under this Agreement shall terminate on the first anniversary date of the Effective Time with respect any Claim Notice that is delivered thereafter.

Incorporation of Exhibits and Schedules. The Exhibits and Schedules identified in this Agreement are incorporated herein by reference and made a part hereof.

Further Assurances; Post-Closing Cooperation. At any time or from time to time after the Closing, the Parties shall execute and deliver to the other party such other documents and instruments, provide such materials and information and take such other actions as the other party may reasonably request to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and otherwise to cause the other Party to fulfill its obligations under this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby, including, but not limited to, all reporting obligations. Each Party agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to cause the conditions to its obligations to consummate the transactions contemplated herein.
