3.2 Power and Authorization. The execution, delivery and performance by each of Parent and Merger Sub of this Agreement and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby are within the power and authority of each of Parent and Merger Sub and have been duly authorized by all necessary action on the part of each of Parent and Merger Sub and no other corporate proceedings are necessary other than, with respect to the Merger, the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the votes cast at the Parent Annual Meeting to approve the Merger, including, without limitation, the issuance of the Merger Consideration (the “Parent Stockholder Approval”). This Agreement (a) has been duly executed and delivered by each of Parent and Merger Sub and (b) is a legal, valid and binding obligation of each of Parent and Merger Sub, enforceable against each of them in accordance with its terms, subject only to the Equitable Exceptions.
