Neither the execution or delivery of this Agreement nor the performance by the Executive of his duties and other obligations hereunder violate or will violate any statute, law, determination or award, or conflict with or constitute a default or breach of any covenant or obligation under (whether immediately, upon the giving of notice or lapse of time or both) any prior employment agreement, contract, or other instrument to which the Executive is a party or by which he is bound.


The Executive has the full right, power, and legal capacity to enter and deliver this Agreement and to perform his duties and other obligations hereunder. This Agreement constitutes the legal, valid, and binding obligation of the Executive enforceable against him in accordance with its terms.  No approvals or consents of any persons or entities are required for the Executive to execute and deliver this Agreement or perform his duties and other obligations hereunder.


Limits of the Executive’s Responsibility & Indemnification.


The Company shall, to the fullest extent allowable under law, reimburse, indemnify, and hold harmless the Executive, of and from any and all expenses, losses, damages, liabilities, demands, charges, and claims of any nature whatsoever, (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) (collectively “Losses”) arising from or related to the services provided hereunder.


The Executive shall not be liable for any mistakes of fact or errors of judgment, for losses sustained by the Company or for any acts or omissions of any kind, unless caused by the intentional misconduct of the Executive engaged in bad faith.


In case any such claim, suit, action, or proceeding (a “Claim”) is brought against the Executive in respect of which indemnification may be sought by the Executive pursuant hereto, the Executive shall give prompt written notice thereof to the Company, which notice shall include all documents and information in the possession of or under the control of the Executive necessary for the evaluation and/or defense of such Claim and shall specifically state that indemnification for such Claim is being sought under this Section; provided, however, that the failure of the Executive to so notify the Company shall not limit or affect the Executive’s rights to be indemnified pursuant to this Section. Upon receipt of such notice of Claim together with such documents and information from the Executive, the Company shall, at its sole cost and expense, in good faith, defend any such Claim with counsel satisfactory to the Executive, which counsel may, without limiting the rights of the Executive pursuant to the next succeeding sentence of this Section, also represent the Company in such investigation, action, or proceeding. In the alternative, the Executive may elect to conduct the defense of the Claim, if: (i) the Executive determines that the conduct of its defense by the Company could be materially prejudicial to its interests, (ii) the Company refuses to defend (or fails to give written notice to the Executive within ten (10) days of receipt of a notice of Claim that the Company assumes such defense), or (iii) the Company shall have failed, in the Executive’s reasonable judgment, to defend the Claim in good faith. The Company may settle any Claim against the Executive without the Executive’s consent, provided: (i) such settlement is without any Losses whatsoever to the Executive, (ii) the settlement does not include or require any admission of liability or culpability by the Executive, and (iii) the Company obtains an effective written release of liability for the Executive from the party to the Claim with whom such settlement is being made, which release must be  acceptable to the Executive, and a dismissal with prejudice with respect to all Claims made by

the party against the Executive in connection with such Claim. The Executive shall reasonably cooperate with the Company, at the Company’s sole cost and expense, in connection with the defense or settlement of any Claim in accordance with the terms hereof. If the Executive is entitled pursuant to this Section to elect to defend such Claim by counsel of its own choosing and so elects, then the Company shall be responsible for any settlement of such Claim entered into by the Executive. Except as provided in the immediately preceding sentence, the Executive may pay or settle any Claim and seek reimbursement therefor under this Section.


The provisions of this Section 8 shall survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement.




At the request of the Executive, the Company shall maintain an adequate director and officers’ liability insurance policy with ten million dollars ($10,000,000) per occurrence coverage with a reputed insurer acceptable to the Executive providing the Executive with insurance coverage, for the duration of this Agreement, covering the services rendered hereunder.
