Any transfer or assignment to Purchaser by Sellers of any such Asset or interest therein (a “Delayed Asset”), shall be made subject to all such Required Consents in respect of such Delayed Asset being obtained.

Each Seller whose Seller’s Assets include a Delayed Asset shall comply with its obligations under this Agreement and to maintain its corporate or other existence until all obligations pursuant to this Section 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 the applicable Seller to Purchaser (or, at Purchaser’s direction) for no additional consideration without any further act on the part of any Party. In the event all Required Consents are not obtained, and/or good title to all Delayed Assets are not received, by the Purchaser, within thirty (30) days of the Closing Date, the applicable Sellers with Delayed Assets and Purchaser shall in good faith determine a reduction in the number of Common Shares and/or Cash Consideration issuable at Closing to the applicable Sellers to take into account the decrease in the value of the Assets created by such failure to obtain all Required Consents and to deliver all Delayed Assets (a “Reduction”), and the applicable Sellers shall return the certificates and other documents evidencing the Common Shares and/or Cash Consideration subject to such Reduction (based on the Agreed Share Value) for cancellation and re-issuance and shall further take whatever actions necessary or requested to affect such Reduction.

Any third party contractors that are given access to Confidential Information of a disclosing Party pursuant to the terms hereof shall be required to sign a written agreement pursuant to which such Receiving Party Personnel agree to be bound by the provisions of this Agreement, which written agreement will expressly state that it is enforceable against such Receiving Party Personnel by the disclosing Party.
 
11.5 Survival. The obligation of confidentiality under this ARTICLE XI shall survive the termination of this Agreement for a period of two years.
 
11.6 No-Conflict With Confidentiality Agreement. Notwithstanding anything in this ARTICLE XI to the contrary, nothing herein shall modify or reduce the obligations of the Parties pursuant to the Confidentiality Agreement.
 
ARTICLE XII.
INDEMNIFICATION
 
12.1 Indemnification by Sellers. Subject to the provisions of this ARTICLE XII, each Seller, individually, and not jointly or severally, agrees to indemnify, defend and hold Purchaser and its Affiliates, parents, stockholders, subsidiaries, officers, directors, employees, agents, successors and assigns (such indemnified Persons are collectively hereinafter referred to as “Purchaser Indemnified Persons”), harmless from and against any and all Losses that any Purchaser Indemnified Person may suffer, sustain, incur or become subject to arising out of or due to: (a) the non-fulfillment of any covenant, undertaking, agreement or other obligation of such Seller under this Agreement, any Schedule hereto or any of the other Transaction Documents; (b) any action taken by such Seller prior to the Closing in connection with the Assets and/or the use of such Assets prior to the Closing Date, or the operations of such Seller prior to and subsequent to Closing (except in connection with the operation of the Assets post-Closing); (c) relating to the Liabilities of such Seller not expressly assumed hereunder; or (d) the breach of any representation, warranty or covenant of such Seller in this Agreement or any Transaction Document to which the Seller is a party and the Seller Representative shall defend and hold each Purchaser Indemnified Person harmless from and against any Losses that any Purchaser Indemnified Person may suffer, sustain, incur or become subject to arising out of or due to any environmental Claims or Liabilities (i) associated with the Assets or (ii) arising from any act or omission by any Seller or the failure of any Seller to comply with any Environmental Law in connection with the Assets (collectively (i) and (ii), the “Environmental Liabilities”), relating to or dating back to the period or periods that each Seller owned and/or had legal title to the Assets which are subject to the applicable Loss (the “Seller Ownership Period”). “Losses” as used in this ARTICLE XII are not limited to matters asserted by third parties, but includes Losses incurred or sustained in the absence of third party Claims. Payment is not a condition precedent to recovery of indemnification for Losses. Each Seller’s indemnification obligations under this Section 12.1 shall be limited to the aggregate amount of consideration (including Cash Consideration, Common Shares and Preferred Shares, as applicable) which such Seller received upon Closing or would receive had the Closing occurred, as applicable (as applicable, the “Seller Cap”).
 
 
54

 
 
12.2 Indemnification by Purchaser. Subject to the provisions of this ARTICLE XII, Purchaser agrees to indemnify, defend and hold Sellers and their Affiliates, parents, stockholders, subsidiaries, officers, directors, members, managers, employees, agents, successors and assigns (such indemnified Persons are collectively hereinafter referred to as “Seller Indemnified Persons” and together with the Purchaser Indemnified Persons, the “Indemnified Persons”), harmless from and against any and all Losses that any Seller Indemnified Person may suffer, sustain, incur or become subject to arising out of or due to: (a) the use of the Assets by the Purchaser after the Closing Date; (b) the non-fulfillment of any covenant, undertaking, agreement or other obligation of Purchaser under this Agreement or any Transaction Document; (c) any inaccuracy of any representation of Purchaser in this Agreement or any Transaction Document; (d) any environmental Claims arising from any act or omission by the Purchaser or the failure of Purchaser to comply with any Environmental Law in connection with the Assets post-Closing or (d) the breach of any warranty or covenant of Purchaser in this Agreement or any Transaction Document. The Liability of the Purchaser under this Section 12.2, shall not exceed the Purchase Price (the “Purchaser Cap” and together with each Seller Cap, the “Cap”).
 
12.3 Survival of Representations, Warranties and Covenants. The representations, warranties, covenants and other provisions of this Agreement which by their terms or by implication are to have continuing effect after the expiration or termination of this Agreement shall survive the Closing Date or the termination of this Agreement for any reason whatsoever, and shall remain in full force and effect.
 
12.4 Indemnification Procedure.
 
(a) Promptly following receipt by an Indemnified Person of notice by a third party (including any Governmental Authority) of any complaint or the commencement of any audit, investigation, action or Proceeding with respect to which such Indemnified Person may be entitled to receive payment from the other Party for any Loss, as provided by Section 12.1 or Section 12.2, such Indemnified Person shall notify the Party who has the responsibility to provide indemnification as provided in by Section 12.1 or Section 12.2 (i.e., the Purchaser or the applicable Seller, as applicable, the “Indemnifying Party”), promptly following the Indemnified Person’s receipt of such complaint or notice of the commencement of such audit, investigation, action or Proceeding; provided, however, that the failure to so notify the Indemnifying Party shall relieve the Indemnifying Party from Liability hereunder with respect to such Claim only if, and only to the extent that, such failure to so notify the Indemnifying Party results in harm or prejudice to the Indemnifying Party. The Indemnifying Party may, upon written notice delivered to the Indemnified Person within twenty (20) days thereafter assuming full responsibility for any Losses resulting from such investigation, action or Proceeding, assume the defense of such investigation, action or Proceeding, to the extent such investigation, action or Proceeding involves solely monetary damages, including the employment of counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Person and the payment of the fees and disbursements of such counsel; provided, however, that an Indemnifying Party will not be entitled to assume the defense of any investigation, action or Proceeding if (i) such Claim may result in criminal Liability of, or equitable remedies against, the Indemnified Person; or (ii) the Indemnified Person reasonably believes that the interests of the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Person with respect to such Claim are in conflict with one another, and as a result, the Indemnifying Party may not adequately represent the interests of the Indemnified Person in such Claim.
 
 
55

 
 
(b) If, however, the Indemnifying Party declines or fails to assume, or is not permitted to assume, the defense of the audit, investigation, action or Proceeding on the terms provided above or to employ counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Person, in either case within such twenty (20) day period, or if the Indemnifying Party is not entitled to assume the defense of the investigation, action or Proceeding in accordance with the preceding sentence, then such Indemnified Person may employ counsel to represent or defend it in any such audit, investigation, action or Proceeding and the Indemnifying Party shall pay the reasonable fees and disbursements of such counsel for the Indemnified Person as incurred; provided, however, that the Indemnifying Party shall not be required to pay the fees and disbursements of more than one counsel for all Indemnified Parties in any jurisdiction in any single audit, investigation, action or Proceeding. If the Indemnifying Party fails to diligently prosecute the defense of any audit, investigation, action or Proceeding, the Indemnified Person may pay, compromise, and defend such audit, investigation, action or Proceeding and seek indemnification for any and all Claims, Liabilities, losses, damages, costs, expenses, penalties, fines, judgments and fees based upon, arising from or relating to such audit, investigation, action or Proceeding. In any audit, investigation, action or Proceeding for which indemnification is being sought hereunder the Indemnified Person or the Indemnifying Party, whichever is not assuming the defense of such action, may participate in such matter and retain its own counsel at such Party’s own expense. The Indemnifying Party or the Indemnified Person (as the case may be) shall at all times use reasonable efforts to keep the Indemnifying Party or the Indemnified Person (as the case may be) reasonably apprised of the status of the defense of any matter the defense of which it is maintaining and to cooperate in good faith with each other with respect to the defense of any such matter.
 
(c) No Indemnified Person may settle or compromise any investigation, action or Proceeding or consent to the entry of any judgment with respect to which indemnification is being sought hereunder without the prior written consent of the Indemnifying Party, unless (i) the Indemnifying Party fails to assume, or is not permitted to assume, and maintain the defense of such Claim pursuant to this ARTICLE XII or (ii) such settlement, compromise or consent includes an unconditional release of the Indemnifying Party and its officers, directors, managers, employees and Affiliates from all Liability arising out of such Claim. An Indemnifying Party may not, without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Person, settle or compromise any Claim or consent to the entry of any judgment with respect to which indemnification is being sought hereunder unless such settlement, compromise or consent (x) includes an unconditional release of the Indemnified Person and its officers, directors, managers, employees and Affiliates from all Liability arising out of such Claim, (y) does not contain any admission or statement suggesting any wrongdoing or Liability on behalf of the Indemnified Person and (z) does not contain any equitable order, judgment or term that in any manner affects, restrains or interferes with the business of the Indemnified Person or any of the Indemnified Person’s Affiliates.
 
 
56

 
 
12.5 Claims Period. The period during which a Claim for indemnification may be asserted under this ARTICLE XII by an Indemnified Party (the “Claims Period”) shall begin on the date hereof and terminate twenty-four (24) months after the Closing Date (except as otherwise set forth in this Section 12.5); provided, that the covenants and agreements that by their terms apply or are to be performed in whole or in part after the Closing Date shall survive for the period provided in such covenants and agreements, if any, or until fully performed. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if, before the close of business on the last day of the applicable Claims Period, the Indemnifying Party is properly notified of a Claim for indemnity hereunder and such Claim is not finally resolved or disposed of at such date, such Claim shall continue to survive and shall remain a basis for indemnity hereunder until such Claim is finally resolved or disposed of in accordance with the terms hereof.
 
12.6 Liability Limits.
 
(a) The total aggregate amount of the Liability of the applicable Indemnifying Party shall not exceed the applicable Cap; and no Indemnified Party shall be indemnified by an Indemnifying Party pursuant to ARTICLE XII for any Losses unless and until the aggregate amount of such Losses exceeds $100,000 (the “Minimum Claim Amount”), after which the applicable Indemnified Party shall be obligated for such aggregate Losses, including, but not limited to the Minimum Claim Amount, from the first dollar, in an amount not to exceed the applicable Cap.
 
(b) Payments by an Indemnifying Party pursuant to ARTICLE XII in respect of any Loss shall be limited to the amount of any Liability or damage that remains after deducting therefrom any insurance proceeds and any indemnity, contribution or other similar payment received by the Indemnified Person in respect of any such Claim. The Indemnified Person shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to recover under insurance policies or indemnity, contribution or other similar agreements for any Losses before seeking indemnification under this Agreement.
 
(c) In no event shall any Indemnifying Party be liable to any Indemnified Person for any punitive, incidental, exemplary, consequential, special or indirect damages, including loss of future revenue or income, loss of business reputation or opportunity relating to the breach or alleged breach of this Agreement or any Transaction Document, or diminution of value or any damages based on any type of multiple (except to the extent such types of damages constitute losses to a third party as a result of any Claim).
 
(d) The amount of any indemnity obligation of any Indemnifying Party to the Indemnified Parties provided in this Agreement shall be computed net of any insurance proceeds actually received by an Indemnified Person (net of any deductible amounts, increases in premiums and costs and expenses incurred with respect to such insurance Claims) in connection with or as a result of any Claim giving rise to an indemnification Claim hereunder. If the indemnity amount is paid to the Indemnified Parties by any Indemnifying Party prior to the Indemnified Person’s actual receipt of insurance proceeds related thereto, the Indemnified Person shall, if permissible by the terms of the applicable policy, assign its right to such insurance and allow the Indemnifying Party to pursue collection of such insurance proceeds or, if such payment has been made by any of the Indemnifying Parties, and an Indemnified Person subsequently receives such insurance proceeds, then the Indemnified Person shall promptly pay to or at the direction of the Indemnifying Party the amount of such insurance proceeds subsequently received (net of all related costs, expenses and other losses), but not more, in the aggregate, than the indemnity amount paid by the Indemnifying Party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Indemnified Person shall be required to (i) pursue such insurance prior to seeking indemnification under this ARTICLE XII or (ii) commence litigation to recover proceeds under such insurance policies if it is unreasonable do so.
 
 
57

 
 
(e) No Indemnified Person shall be entitled to indemnification hereunder for any loss in respect of any Claim to the extent that (i) such loss would not have arisen but for the enactment of any legislation not in effect on the Closing Date or any change of any Law or administrative practice of any Governmental Authority after the Closing Date or any change in any generally accepted accounting principles after the Closing Date, including in each case any legislation or change which takes effect retrospectively, (ii) such loss has arisen as a result of any act or omission by the party seeking indemnification on or after the Closing Date (including without limitation resulting from any change in accounting principles, practices or methodologies) and to the extent of any loss arising from any breach by the party seeking indemnification of its obligations under this Agreement or the other Transaction Documents (in each case provided such party’s breach is a principal cause or principal contributing factor to such party’s Losses related thereto), and (iii) such loss is offset by a corresponding gain accruing after the Closing Date, directly or indirectly, to the benefit of the party seeking indemnification, as a direct result of the act, matter, omission or circumstance giving rise to such loss.
 
12.7 Right to Set Off. In the event that Purchaser shall have a Claim against a Seller for which Purchaser has not been fully indemnified as contemplated above, Purchaser shall have the right to set off the amount of such Claim against such Seller, against any amounts due such Seller hereunder or any other agreement or understanding by and between Purchaser and such Seller. In the event that any Seller shall have a Claim against Purchaser for which such Seller has not been fully indemnified as contemplated above, such Seller shall have the right to set off the amount of such Claim against Purchaser, against any amounts due Purchaser hereunder or any other agreement or understanding by and between Purchaser and such Seller.

13.3 Schedules and Exhibits. The schedules and exhibits are hereby incorporated into this Agreement and are hereby made a part hereof as if set out in full herein.
 
13.4 Entire Agreement; Modification. This Agreement, including the schedules, exhibits and amendments hereto constitute the entire agreement between the Parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior agreements, understandings and negotiations, both written and oral, between the Parties with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement, other than the Confidentiality Agreement. No representation, inducement, promise, understanding, condition or warranty not set forth herein has been made or relied upon by any Party hereto. No provision of this Agreement may be amended other than by an instrument in writing signed by the Purchaser and the Required Sellers, and any amendment to this Agreement made in conformity with the provisions of this Section 13.4 shall be binding on all Sellers, unless such proposed amendment would (i) reduce the Cash Consideration, Common Shares or Preferred Shares due to any Sellers; (ii) change the terms of the Debt Assumption; or (iii) materially change any representations or confirmations of Sellers as set forth in ARTICLE V; or (iv) otherwise increase any Liability on the Sellers, which amendment shall require the consent of the Purchaser and all Sellers in order to become effective.
 
13.5 Headings. The headings contained in this Agreement and in the schedules and exhibits hereto are for reference purposes only and shall not affect in any way the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement.
 
13.6 Assignments and Successors. The Purchaser may not assign any of its rights or delegate any of its obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the Required Sellers. No Seller may assign any of its rights or delegate any of its obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the Purchaser.

This Agreement will be binding upon, and shall be enforceable by the Parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns.
 
 
60

 
 
13.7 Filings, Notices and Certain Governmental Approvals. Promptly after Closing, Purchaser shall record the Assignments and all state assignments in all applicable real property records and/or, if applicable, all state agencies and send file stamped and recorded copies of the same to Sellers.
 
13.8 No Presumption from Drafting. This Agreement has been negotiated at arm’s-length between Persons knowledgeable in the matters set forth within this Agreement. Accordingly, given that all Parties have had the opportunity to draft, review and/or edit the language of this Agreement, no presumption for or against any Party arising out of drafting all or any part of this Agreement will be applied in any action relating to, connected with or involving this Agreement. In particular, any rule of law, legal decisions, or common law principles of similar effect that would require interpretation of any ambiguities in this Agreement against the Party that has drafted it, is of no application and is hereby expressly waived. The provisions of this Agreement shall be interpreted in a reasonable manner to affect the intentions of the Parties.
 
13.9 Review and Construction of Documents. Each Party herein expressly represents and warrants to all other Parties hereto that (a) before executing this Agreement, said Party has fully informed itself of the terms, contents, conditions and effects of this Agreement; (b) said Party has relied solely and completely upon its own judgment in executing this Agreement; (c) 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; (d) said Party has acted voluntarily and of its own free will in executing this Agreement; and (e) this Agreement is the result of arm’s length negotiations conducted by and among the Parties and their respective counsel.
 
13.10 Governing Law; Venue. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict provision or rule (whether of Texas or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the laws of any other jurisdiction to be applied and Applicable Laws of the United States of America. The obligations of the Parties hereto are to be performed in Texas. All disputes, Claims, demands, actions, causes of action, suits or Proceedings by and among the parties to this Agreement shall be adjudicated, litigated, heard or tried, if at all, exclusively in the state or federal courts of Texas. Texas shall be the mandatory, exclusive place for the adjudication, litigation, hearing or trial of any matter by and among the parties to this Agreement. Each party to this Agreement hereby irrevocably waives any right to have any such dispute, Claim, demand, action, cause of action, suit or Proceeding adjudicated, litigated, heard or tried in any place other than Texas.
 
13.11 Waiver of Jury Trial. Each of the Parties irrevocably waives any and all rights to trial by jury in any action or Proceeding between the Parties arising out of or relating to this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby.
 
13.12 Specific Performance. The Parties hereto acknowledge and agree that irreparable damage would occur if any provision of this Agreement were not performed in accordance with its specific terms or were otherwise breached, and that monetary damages, even if available, would not be an adequate remedy therefor. It is accordingly agreed that the Parties shall be entitled to an injunction or injunctions to prevent breaches of this Agreement or to enforce specifically the performance of the terms and provisions hereof in any federal court located in the State of Texas or any Texas state court, without proof of actual damages (and each Party hereby waives any requirement for the security or posting of any bond in connection with such remedy), this being in addition to any other remedy to which they are entitled at law or in equity. The Parties further agree not to assert that a remedy of specific enforcement is unenforceable, invalid, contrary to Applicable Law or inequitable for any reason, nor to assert that a remedy of monetary damages would provide an adequate remedy for any such breach.
 
 
61

 
 
13.13 Non-Waiver. The failure in any one or more instances of a Party hereto to insist upon performance of any of the terms, covenants or conditions of this Agreement, to exercise any right or privilege in this Agreement conferred, or the waiver by said Party of any breach of any of the terms, covenants or conditions of this Agreement shall not be construed as a subsequent waiver of any such terms, covenants, conditions, rights or privileges, but the same shall continue and remain in full force and effect as if no such forbearance or waiver had occurred.
 
13.14 Independent Nature of Sellers’ Obligations and Rights. The obligations of each Seller under this Agreement and each Transaction Document to which they are a party, are several and not joint with the obligations of any other Seller, and no Seller shall be responsible in any way for the performance or non-performance of the obligations of any other Seller under this Agreement or any Transaction Document. Nothing contained herein or in any other Transaction Document, and no action taken by any Seller pursuant hereto or thereto, shall be deemed to constitute the Sellers as a partnership, an association, a joint venture or any other kind of entity, or create a presumption that the Sellers are in any way acting in concert or as a group with respect to such obligations or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the Transaction Documents, and each Seller has conducted its own diligence review. Each Seller shall be entitled to independently protect and enforce its rights including, without limitation, the rights arising out of this Agreement or out of the other Transaction Documents, and it shall not be necessary for any other Seller to be joined as an additional party in any proceeding for such purpose, subject in each case to the terms and conditions hereof and the rights of the Seller Representative. Each Seller has been represented by its own separate legal counsel in its review and negotiation of this Agreement and the Transaction Documents. For reasons of administrative convenience only, each Seller and its respective counsel have chosen to communicate with the Purchaser through Knobles, Raetzsch, Moore & Eveld, LLP (“KRME”). KRME does not represent any of the Sellers other than RAD2 Minerals, Ltd.; the General Partner of Azar-Dreeben A&D Fund, LP; Ben Azar; Coyle Manna Management, LLC; DBS Investments, Ltd.; the General Partners of MPII-Range-Azar Fund, LP;  Saxum Energy, LLC, and Segundo Resources, LLC.
 
13.15 Non-Compensatory Damages. Neither Purchaser nor Sellers shall be entitled to recover from the other, or their respective Affiliates, any indirect, special, consequential, punitive or exemplary damages, or damages for lost profits of any kind or loss of business opportunity, arising under or in connection with this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby, except to the extent any such Party suffers such damages (including costs of defense and reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred in connection with defending of such damages) to a third party, which damages (including costs of defense and reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred in connection with defending against such damages) shall not be excluded by this provision as to recovery hereunder. Subject to the preceding sentence, Purchaser, on behalf of itself and each of its Affiliates, and each Seller, on behalf of itself and each of its Affiliates, waive any right to recover any indirect, special, consequential, punitive or exemplary damages, or damages for lost profits of any kind or loss of business opportunity, arising in connection with or with respect to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby.
 
 
62

 
 
13.16 Time of Essence. With regard to all dates and time periods set forth or referred to in this Agreement, time is of the essence.
 
13.17 Severability. If any term or other provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced by any rule of law, or public policy, all other conditions and provisions of this Agreement shall nevertheless remain in full force and effect so long as the economic or legal substance of the transactions contemplated hereby is not affected in any manner adverse to any party. Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced, the Parties hereto shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to affect the original intent of the Parties as closely as possible in an acceptable manner to the end that transactions contemplated hereby are fulfilled to the extent possible.
 
13.18 Counterparts, Effect of Facsimile, Emailed and Photocopied Signatures. This Agreement may be executed in two or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original, but all of which shall constitute one and the same agreement. This Agreement and any signed agreement or instrument entered into in connection with this Agreement, and any amendments hereto or thereto, may be executed in one or more counterparts, all of which shall constitute one and the same instrument. Any such counterpart, to the extent delivered by means of a facsimile machine or by .pdf, .tif, .gif, .peg or similar attachment to electronic mail (including email) or as an electronic download (any such delivery, an “Electronic Delivery”) shall be treated in all manner and respects as an original executed counterpart and shall be considered to have the same binding legal effect as if it were the original signed version thereof delivered in person. At the request of any Party, each other Party shall re execute the original form of this Agreement and deliver such form to all other Parties. No Party shall raise the use of Electronic Delivery to deliver a signature or the fact that any signature or agreement or instrument was transmitted or communicated through the use of Electronic Delivery as a defense to the formation of a contract, and each such Party forever waives any such defense, except to the extent such defense relates to lack of authenticity.
 
13.19 Transaction Expenses. Until Closing, in the event this Agreement is terminated prior to Closing and/or in the event the Acquisition does not close, each Party shall be responsible for the payment of any and all of its own expenses, including without limitation the fees and expenses of counsel, accountants and other advisers, arising out of or relating directly or indirectly to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (“Transaction Expenses”). Following the Closing, the Purchaser shall satisfy or reimburse all reasonable Transaction Expenses paid for, or incurred on behalf of, the Sellers (the “Sellers Transaction Expenses”) in connection with the Acquisition.
 
13.20 Post-Closing Matters. Each Party shall execute such documents, and perform such other actions, as any other Party may reasonably request after the applicable Closing to further consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.
