(c)    Each of Solera and, as applicable, WCAS SRS and the Company shall cooperate with one another in good faith to (i) promptly determine whether any filings not contemplated by this Section 4.6 are required to be or should be made, and whether any other consents, approvals, permits or authorizations not contemplated by this Section 4.6 are required to be or should be obtained, from any Governmental Authority under any other applicable Law in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby, and (ii) promptly make any filings, furnish information required in connection therewith and seek to obtain timely any such consents, permits, authorizations, approvals or waivers that the parties determine are required to be or should be made or obtained in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby.
(d)    Solera shall take such action as may be required (i) by the applicable Governmental Authority (including the Antitrust Division of the DOJ or the FTC) in order to resolve such objections as such Governmental Authority may have to such transactions under applicable Law, or (ii) by any court or similar tribunal, in any Action brought by a private party or Governmental Authority challenging the transactions contemplated by this Agreement as violative of any applicable Law, in order to avoid the entry of, or to effect the dissolution of, any injunction, temporary restraining order or other order that has the effect of preventing the consummation of any of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

(e)    Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this Agreement shall require WCAS SRS, Solera, the Company or any of their respective Affiliates (i) to propose or agree to accept any agreement or condition, to enter into any consent decree, to make any divestiture, to accept any restriction, or take any other action that, in the reasonable judgment of WCAS SRS, Solera or the Company, as applicable, would reasonably be expected to limit the right of such Person (or its Affiliates) to own or operate all or any portion of its respective businesses or assets or those businesses and assets involved in the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, if, in the aggregate, such proposal, agreement or condition would be material and adverse to the business of such Person, taken as a whole, or (ii) otherwise, to litigate, pursue or defend against any action or proceeding (including any temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction) challenging the transactions contemplated by this Agreement as being in violation of the HSR Act. Notwithstanding clause (i) of the immediately preceding sentence, neither Solera, nor any of its Affiliates shall be


‑20‑




required to take the actions described in such clause (i) above if such limitation(s) would have reduced Solera’s and its Affiliates’ consolidated revenue during the 12-month period most recently ended prior to the request for such limitation(s) on a pro forma basis, assuming such limitation(s) were effective during the entire prior 12-month period, by $5,000,000 or more (a “Material Restriction”).
4.7    Notification of Certain Matters.
(a)    During the Pre-Closing Period, each of the Seller Parties shall give prompt notice to Solera upon becoming aware that any representation or warranty made by it in this Agreement has become untrue or inaccurate, or of any failure of such Seller Party to perform or comply with or satisfy any covenant or agreement to be performed or complied with by it under this Agreement, in any such case if and only to the extent that such untruth or inaccuracy, or such failure, would cause any of the conditions to the Closing Transactions set forth in Section 5.2(a) or Section 5.2(b) to not be satisfied at such time.
(b)    During the Pre-Closing Period, Solera shall give prompt notice to the Company and WCAS SRS upon becoming aware that any representation or warranty made by Solera in this Agreement has become untrue or inaccurate, or of any failure of Solera to perform or comply with any covenant or agreement to be performed or complied with by it under this Agreement, in any such case if and only to the extent that such untruth or inaccuracy, or such failure, would cause any of the conditions to the Closing Transactions set forth in Section 5.3(a) or Section 5.3(b) to not be satisfied at such time.
4.8    WCAS SRS Contribution. Subject to the fulfillment of Closing conditions at or prior to the Closing (other than those conditions that by their nature are to be satisfied at Closing), prior to the Closing, WCAS and WCAS SRS shall do all things necessary and proper to, and shall cause the other WCAS Investors to, consummate the WCAS SRS Contribution at the Closing and substantially contemporaneously with the Closing of the other transactions contemplated by this Agreement.
4.9    Formation of Newco; the Newco Contribution. Prior to the Closing, WCAS and WCAS SRS shall cause the formation of Newco and shall cause Newco to, prior to and at Closing, have in effect the Certificate of Incorporation attached hereto as Exhibit C and the Bylaws attached hereto as Exhibit D. Subject to the fulfillment of Closing conditions at or prior to the Closing (other than those conditions that by their nature are to be satisfied at Closing), prior to the Closing, WCAS and WCAS SRS shall, and shall cause Newco to, do all things necessary and proper to cause the consummation of the Newco Contribution at the Closing and substantially contemporaneously with the Closing of the other transactions contemplated by this Agreement.
4.10    Delayed Potential IR Transactions. The parties hereto acknowledge and agree that, on or prior to the date that is ten (10) months following the date of this Agreement, Solera shall be able to elect to purchase, directly or indirectly, Auto Point, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly-owned Subsidiary of SRS (“API”), and Mobile Productivity, Inc., a Nevada corporation and a wholly-owned Subsidiary of SRS (“MPI”) from SRS at an aggregate


‑21‑




purchase price equal to $18,000,000, on a cash-free basis (collectively, the “IR Transactions”); provided that the IR Transactions must close on or prior to the first anniversary of the date of this Agreement. If Solera elects to engage in the IR Transactions, WCAS SRS and Solera shall negotiate in good faith the terms, which in all cases shall be subject to the approval of WCAS SRS and Solera, of an Equity Purchase Agreement, a Transition Services Agreement and such other licenses and other agreements to provide API and MPI with appropriate arrangements for those entities to reasonably continue their businesses as previously conducted in all material respects, with such compensation to the Company as is reasonable and customary on an arm’s length basis. Unless WCAS SRS and Solera mutually agree otherwise, prior to the consummation of the IR Transactions, SRS shall (x) cause API to be converted into a Delaware limited liability company that is wholly owned by SRS and (y) cause MPI to be converted into a Nevada limited liability company that is wholly owned by SRS. Promptly following the consummation of the IR Transactions, Solera and WCAS SRS shall cause Newco to use the entire purchase price of the IR Transactions to redeem from each of Solera and WCAS SRS 9,000 shares of Class B Common Stock (or, to the extent either such party holds less than 9,000 shares of Class B Common Stock, Newco shall redeem a number of such party’s Class A Common Stock that together with the amount of Class B Common Stock held by such party equals 9,000 shares of Common Stock in the aggregate, and in any case, Newco shall redeem the same number of shares of Class B Common Stock and Class A Common Stock from each party to the extent possible) at a redemption price equal to $1,000 per share of Class B Common Stock or Class A Common Stock, as applicable.
4.11    Unpaid Transaction Expenses. SRS shall, at the Closing, pay or cause to be paid, by wire transfer of immediately available funds, all Unpaid Transaction Expenses in accordance with written instructions delivered by WCAS SRS or Solera, which instructions shall be delivered at least two (2) Business Days prior to the Closing Date.
4.12    Redemption of 2018 Notes.
(a)    Whether before or after the Closing, the Company shall use its, and shall cause its Representatives to use their, commercially reasonable efforts to cooperate with Solera and its Affiliates in connection with the arrangement of one or more financing transactions, which may include the issuance of debt or equity securities of Solera (or its Affiliates, if applicable) (the “Financing”), so long as the proceeds of which are primarily used to redeem all of the outstanding 2018 Notes under Section 3.07(b), or otherwise, of the 2018 Indenture (the “2018 Note Redemption”) (provided that such requested cooperation does not unreasonably interfere with the ongoing operations of the Company and its Subsidiaries and provided that, subject to the limitations below, such requested cooperation is of the type customarily provided in connection with financing arranged by purchasing parties in a leveraged acquisition) by: (i) responding at reasonable times to a reasonable number of due diligence inquiries from Solera’s (and its Affiliates’) financing sources with respect to the Company and its Subsidiaries and their operations; (ii) reviewing any information regarding the Company and its Subsidiaries included in any materials for rating agency presentations, bank information memoranda, offering documents, private placement memoranda and prospectuses; (iii) using commercially reasonable efforts to reasonably promptly furnish Solera, its Affiliates, and their Representatives and financing sources with readily-available financial and


‑22‑




other pertinent information regarding the Company and its Subsidiaries as may be reasonably requested by Solera’s (and its Affiliates’) financing sources and is customary in connection with similar financing transactions (x) that would typically be included in either a registration statement filed under the Securities Act or an offering memorandum in connection with a private placement of debt securities by Solera (or one of its Affiliates) under Rule 144A of the Securities Act or (y) that is required for purposes of such Person’s due diligence review of the Company as a subsidiary or investment of Solera Parent, but not as a guarantor or otherwise as a credit party, in connection with such Financing; provided that (A) the foregoing shall not require the Company or SRS to include in any such registration statement or offering memorandum any audited or unaudited financial statements of the Company or SRS and (B) none of the Company, its Subsidiaries or its Representatives shall furnish any information that is proprietary to WCAS or its Affiliates or any information subject to attorney-client privilege or other confidentiality restrictions; and (iv) providing readily-available information related to the Company and its Subsidiaries, if any, required by regulatory authorities including under applicable “know your customer” and anti money laundering rules and regulations, including the Patriot Act; provided that, the foregoing notwithstanding, neither WCAS SRS, WCAS, Newco, the Company nor its Subsidiaries, whether before or after the Closing, shall have any obligation to, or to cause any of their respective Affiliates to, (1) participate in any meetings, (2) execute any agreement, certificate, document or instrument in connection with the Financing, (3) adopt resolutions approving the agreements, documents and instruments pursuant to which the Financing is obtained, or (4) incur any out-of-pocket costs.  Without limitation to clause (4) of the preceding sentence, Solera shall, promptly upon request by the Company, reimburse the Company for all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket costs incurred by the Company or its Subsidiaries in connection with such cooperation, and shall indemnify and hold harmless the Company, its Subsidiaries and their respective Representatives from and against any and all losses, damages, claims, costs or expenses suffered or incurred by any of them of any type in connection with the arrangement of any Financing and any information used in connection therewith, and the foregoing obligations shall survive termination of this Agreement. All non-public or other confidential information provided by the Company and its Subsidiaries pursuant to this Section 4.12(a) shall be kept confidential in accordance with the Confidentiality Agreement, except that Solera and its Affiliates shall be permitted to disclose such information: (I) to potential sources of capital and to rating agencies and prospective lenders and investors during syndication of the Financing, subject to the potential sources of capital, prospective lenders and investors entering into customary confidentiality undertakings with respect to such information (in the context of a private placement of debt securities under Rule 144A of the Securities Act, such confidentiality undertakings as are customary in such a private placement) with the Company and its Subsidiaries and the Company and its Subsidiaries being beneficiaries of such confidentiality undertakings; or (II) in the context of a private placement of debt securities under Rule 144A of the Securities Act, pursuant to Regulation FD under the Exchange Act so that potential investors are not in possession of material non-public information during the Financing process.
(b)    If the 2018 Note Redemption does not occur on or prior to the Closing Date: (i) this Section 4.12 shall survive the Closing until such time as the 2018 Note Redemption has been consummated, (ii) the Stockholders Agreement to be entered into at the Closing shall be modified from the form attached as Exhibit A to include the alternative terms set forth on Section 4.12(b)-1 of the Disclosure Schedule and each party shall do all things necessary or desirable to cause such


‑23‑




modifications to occur prior to the execution of the Stockholders Agreement at the Closing, (iii) WCAS SRS, Solera and Newco shall enter a customary Pledge and Security Agreement pursuant to which Solera’s Newco Common Stock shall serve as security for the WCAS Annual Put Right, the WCAS Special Put Right and the receipt of the Aggregate Call Purchase Price following the exercise of the S Call Right (each as defined in the Stockholders Agreement) for so long as any of the 2018 Notes are outstanding or any provision of the 2018 Indenture is still in effect, (iv) WCAS SRS, on the one hand, and Newco and Newco’s Subsidiaries, on the other hand, shall enter a customary Security Agreement pursuant to which the assets of Newco and its Subsidiaries shall serve as security for the WCAS Annual Put Right, the WCAS Special Put Right and the receipt of the Aggregate Call Purchase Price following the exercise of the S Call Right (each as defined in the Stockholders Agreement) for so long as any of the 2018 Notes are outstanding or any provision of the 2018 Indenture is still in effect, and Newco and its Subsidiaries shall assist WCAS SRS in perfecting liens with respect thereto, (v) the WCAS SRS Class A Sale Shares shall increase by one (1) share and the WCAS SRS Class A Sale Price shall increase by $1,000, (vi) the term “Closing Indebtedness” as used in this Agreement shall include the additional items set forth on Section 4.12(b)-2 of the Disclosure Schedule and (vii) to the extent that following the Closing Date any party hereto acquires knowledge that any Closing Indebtedness shall not have been repaid on or prior to the Closing, each of WCAS SRS, Solera, the Company and SRS shall, and shall, as applicable, cause Newco and its Subsidiaries to, use best efforts to repay and eliminate such Closing Indebtedness as soon as practicable, and if possible within sixty (60) days following the Closing Date.

(g)    by mutual written consent of WCAS SRS and Solera;
(h)    by Solera or WCAS SRS if the Closing has not occurred before 5:00 p.m. (Central time) on the date that is sixty (60) days after the date of this Agreement (the “End Date”), unless, (i) on or prior to the End Date, either Solera or WCAS SRS elects, in its sole discretion upon written notice to the other party, to extend the End Date once to the date that is thirty (30) days following the End Date or, if such date is not a Business Day, to the first Business Day immediately subsequent thereto (the last day of such period, the “Extended End Date”); and (ii) on the Extended End Date, the conditions to Closing set forth in Sections 5.1(b) or 5.1(c) have not been fulfilled, but all other conditions to Closing shall be, or shall be capable of being, fulfilled, in which case, the End Date shall automatically be extended once more to the date that is thirty (30) days following the Extended End Date (provided that if the U.S. federal government shutdown which commenced on October 1, 2013, is still occurring on October 16, 2013, then either Solera or WCAS SRS may elect, in its sole discretion upon written notice to the other party, to further extend the period described in this clause (ii) by the number of days following October 15, 2013, during which such U.S. federal government shutdown is occurring); provided, however, that the right to terminate this Agreement under this Section 6.1(b) shall not be available to any party if the failure of such party to perform in any material respect any of its covenants or agreements under this Agreement has been a principal cause of the failure of the Closing Transactions to be consummated on or before such date.
(i)    by Solera or WCAS SRS if any Governmental Authority of competent jurisdiction (i) shall have enacted, issued or promulgated any Law that is in effect and has the effect of making the Closing Transactions illegal or which has the effect of prohibiting or otherwise preventing the consummation of the Closing Transactions, or (ii) shall have issued or granted any Order that is in effect and has the effect of making the Closing Transactions illegal or which has the effect of prohibiting or otherwise preventing the consummation of the Closing Transactions, and such Order shall have become final and non-appealable;

be satisfied, and (ii) there shall have been a breach of, or inaccuracy in, any representation or warranty made by Solera under this Agreement, or any failure of Solera to perform or comply with any covenant or agreement to be performed or complied with by it under this Agreement, in any such case if and only to the extent that such breach, inaccuracy or failure (A) would cause any of the conditions to the Closing Transactions set forth in Section 5.3(a) or Section 5.3(b) to not be satisfied at such time and (B) is not cured by Solera within thirty (30) days of receipt by Solera of written notice of such breach, inaccuracy or failure.

In the event of termination of this Agreement as provided in Section 6.1, this Agreement shall forthwith become void and there shall be no liability or obligation on the part of any party or their respective Representatives, if applicable; provided, however, that, except as otherwise provided in any other provision of this Agreement, no such termination shall relieve any party hereto of any liability or damages (which the parties acknowledge and agree shall not be limited to reimbursement of out-of-pocket fees, costs or expenses incurred in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby, and may include, to the extent proven, the benefit of the bargain lost by a party’s stockholders (taking into consideration relevant matters, including other combination opportunities and the time value of money), which shall be deemed in such event to be damages of such party) resulting from any breach of this Agreement prior to such termination, in which case the aggrieved party shall be entitled to all remedies available at law or in equity; provided, further, that, the provisions of Section 4.4 (Public Disclosure), ARTICLE VII (General Provisions) and this Section 6.2 (Effect of Termination) shall remain in full force and effect and survive any termination of this Agreement pursuant to the terms of this ARTICLE VI. In addition to the foregoing, no termination of this Agreement shall affect the obligations of the parties hereto set forth in the Confidentiality Agreement, which shall survive termination of this Agreement in accordance with its terms.
(g)    In the event that (i) this Agreement is validly terminated by WCAS SRS pursuant to Section 6.1(b) or 6.1(c) or by the parties pursuant to Section 6.1(a), (ii) either of the conditions set forth in Sections 5.1(b) and 5.1(c) is not satisfied, (iii) Solera chooses to exercise its rights set forth in the final sentence of Section 4.6(e) and (iv) at the time of such termination, all other conditions to Closing have been satisfied or would reasonably be expected to be satisfied at a Closing if a Closing were to occur and the parties were to comply with their respective covenants herein, then Solera shall pay WCAS the WCAS Reimbursement Amount, by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account or accounts designated in writing by WCAS, within two (2) Business Days following the occurrence of such termination. The parties hereto acknowledge and agree that (x) in no event shall Solera be required to pay the WCAS Reimbursement Amount on more than one occasion, and (y) except with respect to any breach of, or inaccuracy in, any representation or warranty made by Solera under this Agreement, or any failure of Solera to perform or comply with any covenant or agreement to be performed or complied with by it under this Agreement, WCAS's receipt of the WCAS Reimbursement Amount shall constitute the sole and exclusive remedy for


‑28‑




any and all losses or damages suffered or incurred by the Company, SRS, WCAS SRS or any other Person in connection with this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby.
6.3    Amendment.  This Agreement may be amended by the parties hereto at any time by execution of an instrument in writing signed on behalf of each party hereto.
6.4    Extension; Waiver.  WCAS SRS, on behalf of itself, WCAS, the Company and SRS, on the one hand, and Solera, on the other hand, hereto may, to the extent legally allowed, (a) extend the time for the performance of any of the obligations of Solera and the Seller Parties, respectively, (b) waive any breaches of or inaccuracies in the representations and warranties made to such party contained herein or in any document delivered pursuant hereto, and (c) waive compliance with any of the agreements or conditions for the benefit of such party contained herein. Any agreement on the part of WCAS SRS or Solera to any such extension or waiver shall be valid only if set forth in an instrument in writing signed on behalf of such party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no failure or delay by any party hereto in exercising any right hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof nor shall any single or partial exercise thereof preclude any other or further exercise of any other right hereunder.
