(v)    The sum, positive or negative, determined by adding the amounts, positive or negative, as calculated by Section 2.08(d)(i)-(iv) shall constitute the “Final Adjustment Payment”;

Such cooperation and information shall include providing copies of relevant Tax Returns or portions thereof, together with related work papers and documents relating to rulings or other determinations by the applicable Governmental Authorities.

(b)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, except for any claims under Section 7.02 or any claims under Section 8.02 for breaches of any of Seller’s Fundamental Reps: (i) an Indemnifying Party shall not be liable for any claim for indemnification pursuant to Section 8.02(i), unless and until the aggregate amount of indemnifiable Losses which may be recovered from the Indemnifying Party equals or exceeds $700,000 (the “Basket”), after which the Indemnifying Party shall be liable only for those Losses in excess of the Basket; and (ii) no Losses may be claimed under Section 8.02(i) by any Indemnified Party or shall be reimbursable by or shall be included in calculating the aggregate Losses for purposes of determining the Basket other than Losses in excess of $25,000 resulting from any single claim or aggregated claims arising out of the same facts, events or circumstances. The maximum amount of indemnifiable Losses which may be recovered from an Indemnifying Party arising out of or resulting from the indemnification provisions set forth in Section 8.02 shall be in the aggregate amount equal to the Escrow Amount.

76



(c)    For all purposes of this Article VIII, “Losses” shall be net of (i) any insurance or other recoveries payable to the Indemnified Party or its Affiliates (other than pursuant to the R&W Insurance Policy) in connection with the facts giving rise to the right of indemnification (net of the expenses of recovery thereof, any deductible, unrecovered amounts or any other costs or Taxes incurred in collecting such amounts, including any premium increases or other reasonable out-of-pocket costs incurred in procuring such recovery) and (ii) any Tax benefit actually realized by such Indemnified Party or its Affiliates arising in connection with the accrual, incurrence or payment of any such Losses in the taxable year in which such Losses were incurred.
(d)    Other than Losses claimed in connection with a Third Party Claim, in no event shall Seller and Krausz be liable for any punitive Losses.
Section 8.05.    Recovery Priority.
(a)    The Purchaser Indemnified Parties will be entitled to indemnification pursuant to Section 8.02(i) (except with respect to breaches of any of Seller’s Fundamental Reps) in the following order: (i) first, the Purchaser Indemnified Parties will bear Losses until the Purchaser Indemnified Parties have suffered Losses in excess of the Basket; (ii) second, the Purchaser Indemnified Parties will be entitled to indemnification from the Escrow Amount but only up to an amount equal to the Basket; (iii) third, the Purchaser Indemnified Parties will be entitled to indemnification from the R&W Insurance Policy (to the extent recovery is available thereunder); and (iv) thereafter, the Seller and Krausz will have no further obligation to indemnify the Purchaser Indemnified Parties.
(b)    The Purchaser Indemnified Parties will be entitled to indemnification pursuant to Section 8.02(i) (with respect to breaches of any of Seller’s Fundamental Reps), Section 8.02(ii), Section 8.02(iii) and Section 8.02(iv) in the following order: (i) first, the Purchaser Indemnified Parties will be entitled to indemnification from the Escrow Amount; (ii) second, the Purchaser Indemnified Parties will be entitled to indemnification from the R&W Insurance Policy (to the extent recovery is available thereunder); and (iii) thereafter, the Seller and Krausz will have no further obligation to indemnify the Purchaser Indemnified Parties. Solely with respect to matters for which the Seller and Krausz have agreed to indemnify the Purchaser Indemnified Parties pursuant to the Letter Agreement, the Purchaser Indemnified Parties must first exhaust their remedies under the Letter Agreement prior to seeking indemnification pursuant to Section 8.02(iv).
(c)    The Purchaser Indemnified Parties will be entitled to indemnification pursuant to Section 8.02(v) solely from the Special Escrow Amount. For the avoidance of doubt, the Purchaser Indemnified Parties will not be entitled to indemnification from the Special Escrow Amount pursuant to any provision of this Agreement other than Section 8.02(v), and no claims shall be made under Section 8.02(v) prior to the Ariel Deadline. To the extent either the Seller or Krausz has not obtained both the Ariel Permit and the Ariel Lease prior to the Ariel

77



Deadline, then the Purchaser and the Seller shall deliver a joint written instruction to the Escrow Agent to release to the Purchaser an amount equal to the then-remaining balance of the Special Escrow Amount.
Section 8.06.    Notice of Loss; Third Party Claims.
(a)    An Indemnified Party shall give the Indemnifying Party notice of any matter which an Indemnified Party has determined has given or could give rise to a right of indemnification under this Agreement, within 30 days of such determination, stating the estimated amount of the Losses, if known, and reasonable detail of the basis on which the amount was calculated thereof, and containing a reference to the provisions of this Agreement in respect of which such right of indemnification is claimed or arises. With respect to any claim for indemnification for any matter not involving a Third Party Claim, (i) the failure to provide notice of such claim shall not release the Indemnifying Party from any of its obligations under this Article VIII except to the extent that the Indemnifying Party is materially prejudiced by such failure, (ii) in the event the Indemnifying Party does not notify the Indemnified Party within 30 days following its receipt of such notice that the Indemnifying Party disputes its liability to the Indemnified Party under this Article VIII or the amount thereof, the claim specified by the Indemnified Party in such notice will be conclusively deemed a liability of the Indemnifying Party under this Article VIII, and the Indemnifying Party will pay the amount of such liability to the Indemnified Party on demand or, in the case of any notice in which the amount of the claim (or any portion of the claim) is estimated, on such later date when the amount of such claim (or such portion of such claim) becomes finally determined, and (iii) if the Indemnifying Party objects in writing to any claim or claims by an Indemnified Party made pursuant to this Section 8.06(a) within 30 days of receiving notice of such claim, then the parties shall attempt in good faith for a period of up 45 days to agree upon the rights of the respective parties with respect to the claim.
(b)    If an Indemnified Party shall receive notice of any Action, audit, claim, demand or assessment (each, a “Third Party Claim”) against it which may give rise to a claim for Losses under this Article VIII, within 30 days of the receipt of such notice, the Indemnified Party shall give the Indemnifying Party notice of such Third Party Claim; provided, however, that the failure to provide such notice shall not release the Indemnifying Party from any of its obligations under this Article VIII except to the extent that the Indemnified Party is materially prejudiced by such failure. The Indemnifying Party shall be entitled to assume and control the defense of such Third Party Claim at its expense and through counsel of its choice if it gives notice of its intention to do so, assuming full responsibility for any Losses resulting from such Third Party Claim (up to the respective aggregate liability amount for indemnification set forth herein), to the Indemnified Party within 15 days of the receipt of such notice from the Indemnified Party; provided, however, that an Indemnifying Party will not be entitled to assume or control the defense of such Third Party Claim if (i) such claim could result in criminal liability of, or equitable remedies against, the Indemnified Party; (ii) such claim does not solely seek and

78



continue to solely seek monetary damages; (iii) such claim involves a customer, vendor or employee of the Indemnified Party; (iv) the Indemnified Party is a Purchaser Indemnified Party and Purchaser reasonably believes potential Losses related thereto, together with the costs of the defense of such Third Party Claim, could likely exceed the amount remaining in the Escrow Amount; or (v) the Indemnified Party reasonably believes that the interests of the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party with respect to such claim are in conflict with one another, and as a result, the Indemnifying Party could not adequately represent the interests of the Indemnified Party in such claim (the conditions set forth in clauses (i) through (v) are, collectively, the “Litigation Conditions”). If the Indemnifying Party elects to undertake any such defense against a Third Party Claim, the Indemnified Party may participate in such defense at its own expense. The Indemnified Party shall cooperate with the Indemnifying Party in such defense and make available to the Indemnifying Party, at the Indemnifying Party’s expense, all witnesses, pertinent records, materials and information in the Indemnified Party’s possession or under the Indemnified Party’s control relating thereto as is reasonably required by the Indemnifying Party. If the Indemnifying Party elects not to compromise or defend any Third Party Claim, fails to promptly notify the Indemnified Party in writing of its election to defend as provided in this Section 8.06(b) or if any of the Litigation Conditions come into existence, then the Indemnified Party may control the defense (represented by counsel of its choice) and defend against any such Third Party Claim and seek indemnification for any and all Losses based upon, arising from or relating to such Third Party Claim. The Indemnifying Party shall have the right to receive copies of all pleadings, notices and communications with respect to such Third Party Claim to the extent that receipt of such documents does not adversely affect any privilege relating to any Indemnified Party.
(c)    If the Indemnifying Party elects to direct the defense of any such claim or proceeding, the Indemnified Party shall not pay, or permit to be paid, any part of such Third Party Claim unless the Indemnifying Party consents in writing to such payment or unless the Indemnifying Party withdraws from the defense of such Third Party Claim or unless a final judgment from which no appeal may be taken by or on behalf of the Indemnifying Party is entered against the Indemnified Party for such Third Party Claim. If the Indemnified Party assumes the defense of any such claims or proceeding pursuant to this Section 8.06 and proposes to settle such claims or proceeding prior to a final judgment thereon or to forgo any appeal with respect thereto, then the Indemnified Party shall give the Indemnifying Party prompt written notice thereof. Neither the Indemnified Party nor the Indemnifying Party may settle any Third Party Claim without the prior written consent of the other party (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed).
Section 8.07.    Remedies. The Purchaser and the Seller acknowledge and agree that, except for (a) any claim based on fraud or related to the Transaction Documents (other than this Agreement) and (b) the resolution of any purchase price adjustment pursuant to Section 2.08, (i) following the Closing, the indemnification provisions of this Article VIII shall be the sole and exclusive remedies of the Purchaser and the Seller for any breach by the other party of the

79



representations and warranties in this Agreement and, except with respect to Section 6.06 and Section 7.02, for any failure by the other party to perform and comply with any covenants and agreements in this Agreement; provided, however, that the foregoing shall not be deemed to deny any party equitable remedies (including injunctive relief or specific performance) when any such remedy is otherwise available under this Agreement or applicable Law, and (ii) anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, no breach of any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement contained herein shall give rise to any right on the part of the Purchaser or the Seller, after the consummation of the purchase and sale of the Shares contemplated by this Agreement, to rescind this Agreement or any of the transactions contemplated hereby. Each party hereto shall take all reasonable steps to mitigate its Losses upon and after becoming aware of any event which could reasonably be expected to give rise to any Losses, in each case solely to the extent required by Law. Except for claims under this Agreement, or any claim based on fraud or related to the Transaction Documents (other than this Agreement), the Purchaser and the Seller each disclaim, waive, and covenant not to sue under any statutory or common law claim, with respect to any matter pertaining or connected to this Agreement, any document executed in connection herewith or the transactions contemplated hereby.
Section 8.08.    Escrow Release.
(a)    On the date that is 18 months after the Closing Date, (the “First Release Date”), the Purchaser and the Seller shall deliver a joint written instruction to the Escrow Agent to release to the Seller an amount equal to the positive difference, if any, between (i) $3,000,000 minus (ii) the amount of Losses for which the Purchaser has made a claim for indemnification pursuant to Section 8.06. After the First Release Date, the then-remaining balance of the Escrow Amount less $500,000 shall continue to be held by the Escrow Agent solely for purposes of satisfying the indemnification obligations set forth in (A) Article VII, (B) Section 8.02(i) (solely with respect to breaches of Section 3.16) and (C) Section 8.02(iv) and for no other purpose and the aforementioned $500,000 shall continue to be held by the Escrow Agent solely for the purposes of satisfying the Indemnification Obligation set forth in (x) Article VII or (y) Section 8.02(i) (solely with respect to breaches of Section 3.16).
(b)    On the date that is 60 months after the Closing Date (the “Second Stage Release Date”), the Purchaser and the Seller shall deliver a joint written instruction to the Escrow Agent to release to the Seller an amount equal to the positive difference, if any, between (i) the then-remaining balance of the Escrow Amount, minus (ii) the amount of Losses for which the Purchaser has made a claim for indemnification pursuant to Section 8.06 (with respect to the indemnification obligations set forth in (A) Section 8.02(i) (solely with respect to breaches of Section 3.16), (B) Section 8.02(iv) (except with respect to $500,000 as set forth in Section 8.08(a)) or (C) Article VII); provided, however, that to the extent that all Tax Returns relating to the Krausz Group for taxable periods ending on or before the Closing Date have not been filed in accordance with Section 7.05 within one year following the Closing Date, then the Second Stage Release Date shall be deemed to be the fourth anniversary of the date on which all

80



Tax Returns relating to the Krausz Group for taxable periods ending on or before the Closing Date have been filed in accordance with Section 7.05. In the event any portion of the Escrow Amount is not released to the Seller as a result of the reduction in respect of Sections 8.08(a)(ii) or 8.08(b)(ii), following the final determination of any such outstanding claims and, as applicable, payment in respect thereof pursuant to the terms of the Escrow Agreement, the Purchaser and the Seller shall promptly and in any event within ten Business Days deliver a joint written instruction to the Escrow Agent to release to the Seller an amount as determined pursuant to this Section 8.08 (after giving effect to the resolution and, as applicable, payment of such claim).
(c)    On the date that the Company or the Purchaser obtains, or that the Seller or Krausz obtains, and provides to the Purchaser evidence of the issuance of, the Ariel Permit and the Ariel Lease, the Purchaser and the Seller shall deliver a joint written instruction to the Escrow Agent to release to the Seller an amount equal to the positive difference, if any, between (i) the then-remaining balance of the Special Escrow Amount, minus (ii) the amount of Losses for which the Purchaser has made a claim for indemnification pursuant to Section 8.02(v). In the event any portion of the Special Escrow Amount is not released to the Seller as a result of the reduction in respect of Section 8.08(c)(ii), following the final determination of any such outstanding claims and, as applicable, payment in respect thereof pursuant to the terms of the Escrow Agreement, the Purchaser and the Seller shall promptly and in any event within ten Business Days deliver a joint written instruction to the Escrow Agent to release to the Seller an amount as determined pursuant to this Section 8.08 (after giving effect to the resolution and, as applicable, payment of such claim).

Section 11.02.    Public Announcements. Neither party to this Agreement shall make, or cause to be made, any press release or public announcement in respect of this Agreement or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or otherwise communicate with any news media without the prior written consent of the other party unless otherwise required by Law or applicable stock exchange regulation, and the parties to this Agreement shall cooperate as to the timing and contents of any such press release, public announcement or communication.
Section 11.03.    Severability. If any term or other provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced by any Law or public policy, such provision shall be ineffective only to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity, and all other terms and provisions of this Agreement shall nevertheless remain in full force and effect for so long as the economic or legal substance of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement is not affected in any manner materially adverse to either party hereto. 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 effect the original intent of the parties as closely as possible in an acceptable manner in order that the transactions contemplated by this Agreement are consummated as originally contemplated to the greatest extent possible.
Section 11.04.    Entire Agreement. This Agreement, the Confidentiality Agreement and the other Transaction Documents constitute the entire agreement of the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof and thereof and supersede all prior agreements and undertakings, both written and oral, between the Seller and the Purchaser with respect to the subject matter hereof and thereof.
Section 11.05.    Assignment. This Agreement may not be assigned by operation of law or otherwise without the express written consent of the Seller and the Purchaser (which consent may be granted or withheld in the sole discretion of the Seller or the Purchaser), as the case may

89



be; provided, that Purchaser shall be permitted, without the consent of any other party hereto, (a) to grant security interests in, or make a collateral assignment of this Agreement and any other Transaction Documents and (b) assign this Agreement to any of its Affiliates (in each such case, the Purchaser nonetheless will remain responsible for the performance of all of its obligations under this Agreement).
Section 11.06.    Amendment. This Agreement may not be amended or modified except (a) by an instrument in writing signed by, or on behalf of, the Seller and the Purchaser or (b) by a waiver in accordance with Section 11.07.
Section 11.07.    Waiver. Either party to this Agreement may (a) extend the time for the performance of any of the obligations or other acts of the other party, (b) waive any inaccuracies in the representations and warranties of the other party contained herein or in any document delivered by the other party pursuant hereto, or (c) waive compliance with any of the agreements of the other party or conditions to such party’s obligations contained herein. Any such extension or waiver shall be valid only if set forth in an instrument in writing signed by the party to be bound thereby. Any waiver of any term or condition shall not be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach or a subsequent waiver of the same term or condition, or a waiver of any other term or condition of this Agreement. The failure of either party hereto to assert any of its rights hereunder shall not constitute a waiver of any of such rights.
Section 11.08.    No Third Party Beneficiaries. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure solely to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns and, except as set forth in Section 11.11, nothing herein is intended to or shall confer upon any other Person any legal or equitable right, benefit or remedy of any nature whatsoever, including any rights of employment for any specified period, under or by reason of this Agreement.
Section 11.09.    Currency. Unless otherwise specified in this Agreement, all references to currency, monetary values and dollars set forth herein shall mean United States (U.S.) dollars and all payments hereunder shall be made in United States dollars.

90



Purchaser shall maintain the D&O Tail Policy in full force and effect and continue to honor the obligations thereunder until the seventh anniversary of the Closing Date.
(b)    Third Party Beneficiaries. The provisions of this Section 11.11 shall survive the Closing and are intended to be for the benefit of, and enforceable by, each of the Directors.
Section 11.12.    Non-Recourse
(a)    All claims or causes of action (whether in contract or in tort, in Law or in equity) that may be based upon, arise out of or relate to this Agreement, or the negotiation, execution or performance of this Agreement (including any representation or warranty made in or in connection with this Agreement or as an inducement to enter into this Agreement), may be made only against the parties hereto.
(b)    No Person who is not a party hereto, including any past, present or future director, officer, employee, incorporator, member, partner, stockholder, Affiliate, agent, attorney or representative of party (“Non-Party Affiliates”), shall have any liability (whether in contract or in tort, in Law or in equity) for any obligations or liabilities arising under, in connection with or related to this Agreement or for any claim based on, in respect of, or by reason of this Agreement or the negotiation or execution hereof; and each party waives and releases all such liabilities, claims and obligations against any such Non-Party Affiliates.
(c)    Except for claims under this Agreement, or any claim based on fraud or related to the Transaction Documents (other than this Agreement), the Company on its behalf and on behalf of Krausz USA, hereby waives and releases Krausz in his capacity as an officer or director of the Company and/or Krausz USA from any liabilities, claims and obligation arising from any action or omission by Krausz taken before the Closing.

This Agreement may be executed and delivered (including by facsimile transmission or by email in portable document format (.pdf)) in one or more counterparts, and by the different parties hereto in separate counterparts, each of which when executed shall be deemed to be an original, but all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same agreement.
Section 11.14.    Parent Guaranty. Parent hereby irrevocably and unconditionally guarantees, and agrees to cause the Purchaser to satisfy, all of its obligations under this Agreement, including without limitation the payment when due of the Purchase Price, the outstanding amount of the Family Debt and any other monetary obligations of Purchaser hereunder. This guarantee (a) is a present and continuing guarantee of payment and not of

91



collectability and (b) is in no way conditioned or contingent upon any attempts to collect or upon any other defense, set off, condition or contingency, including without limitation (i) any change in the corporate existence, structure or ownership of the Purchaser or any other Person now or hereafter liable with respect to the obligations guaranteed hereunder; (ii) any insolvency, bankruptcy, reorganization or other similar proceeding affecting the Purchaser or any Person now or hereafter liable with respect to the obligations guaranteed hereunder; or (iii) the adequacy of any other means the Seller may have of obtaining payment of the obligations guaranteed hereunder.
