The Company represents and warrants that true and complete copies of the SEC Documents are available on the SEC’s website (www.sec.gov) at no charge to Buyers, and Buyers acknowledge that each of them may retrieve all SEC Documents from such website and each Buyer’s access to such SEC Documents through such website shall constitute delivery of the SEC Documents to Buyers; provided, however, that if any Buyer is unable to obtain any of such SEC Documents from such website at no charge, as result of such website not being available or any other reason beyond any Buyer’s control, then upon request from such Buyer, the Company shall deliver to such Buyer true and complete copies of such SEC Documents. As of their respective dates, the SEC Documents complied in all material respects with the requirements of the Exchange Act, and none of the SEC Documents, at the time they were filed with the SEC, contained any untrue statement of a material fact or omitted to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary in order to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading.

To the knowledge of the Company and its officers, no other information provided by or on behalf of the Company to the Buyers which is not included in the SEC Documents contains any untrue statement of a material fact or omits to state any material fact necessary in order to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstance under which they are or were made, not misleading.

(iii)          Injunction and Specific Performance. The Company specifically acknowledges and agrees that in the event of a breach or threatened breach by the Company of any provision of this Section 7.3(c), each Buyer will be irreparably damaged and that damages at law would be an inadequate remedy if this Agreement were not specifically enforced. Therefore, in the event of a breach or threatened breach of any provision of this Section 7.3(c) by the Company, each Buyer shall be entitled to obtain, in addition to all other rights or remedies such Buyer may have, at law or in equity, an injunction restraining such breach, without being required to show any actual damage or to post any bond or other security, and/or to a decree for specific performance of the provisions of this Section 7.3(c).

7.7          Regulatory Approvals and Related Matters.

 

(a)           Each of the Company and Murata shall use its commercially reasonable best efforts to file, as soon as practicable after the date of this Agreement, all notices, reports and other documents required to be filed by such party with any Governmental Authority with respect to the Contemplated Transactions, and to submit promptly any additional information requested by any such Governmental Authority.  Without limiting any of the foregoing, if the Company and Murata determine in good faith that a declaration pursuant to 31 C.F.R. § 801.402(a) is required for the Contemplated Transactions, CFIUS indicates that such a declaration is required for the Contemplated Transactions, or if the Company and Murata determine in good-faith that a Joint Voluntary Notice otherwise is advisable, the Company and Murata shall: (i) as promptly as practicable after the date of this Agreement, prepare and file with CFIUS such a declaration or Joint Voluntary Notice, as appropriate, which shall state that if the action taken by CFIUS at the end of the declaration assessment or Joint Voluntary Notice review or investigation period satisfies the CFIUS Condition, then the parties intend to consummate the purchase and sale of the Shares to be acquired by Murata hereunder promptly after the satisfaction or waiver of the last to be satisfied or waived of the conditions set forth in ARTICLE VIII and ARTICLE IX; (ii) if, in the event of a mandatory declaration, CFIUS requests at the conclusion of the 30-day declaration assessment period described in 31 C.F.R. § 801.404 that the parties to the transaction file a Joint Voluntary Notice pursuant to subpart E, the Company and Murata shall draft and promptly prepare and submit a formal Joint Voluntary Notice to CFIUS pursuant to 31 C.F.R. § 800.401(a); (iii) if, in the event of a mandatory declaration, the CFIUS Condition has been satisfied at the conclusion of the 30-day declaration assessment period described in 31 C.F.R. § 801.404, then the Company and Murata shall forgo submission of a Joint Voluntary Notice to CFIUS pursuant to 31 C.F.R. § 800.401(f); and (iv) in all cases, use commercially reasonable efforts to respond as promptly as practicable, and no later than the deadline specified by CFIUS for such a response, to any information request from CFIUS in connection with the CFIUS assessment, review or investigation of the Contemplated Transactions, as the case may be; provided that, if a declaration pursuant to 31 C.F.R. § 801.402(a) is not required for the Contemplated Transactions, the Company shall provide Murata with the CFIUS Warranty.  The Company and Murata agree that if CFIUS suggests or requests, or if Murata and the Company determine it to be reasonably appropriate in connection with satisfying the CFIUS Condition, that the parties withdraw and resubmit a declaration or Joint Voluntary Notice submitted to CFIUS pursuant to this Section 7.7(a), the Company and Murata shall cooperate in withdrawing and resubmitting such declaration or Joint Voluntary Notice.

 

(b)           The Company and Murata each shall promptly supply the other with any information which may be required in order to effectuate any filings (including applications) pursuant to (and to otherwise comply with its obligations set forth in) Section 7.7(a).  The Company: (i) shall have the principal responsibility for devising and implementing the strategy of the parties with respect to seeking any actions or Consents of any Governmental Authority with respect to the Contemplated Transactions and coordinating any contacts with any Governmental Authority; and (ii) shall take the lead in all meetings and communications with any Governmental Authority in connection with obtaining any such action or Consent.

 

(c)           Each of the Company and Murata shall notify the other promptly upon the receipt of: (i) any communication from any official of any Governmental Authority in

 

20


 

connection with any filing or submission made pursuant to this Agreement; (ii) knowledge of the commencement or threat of commencement of any legal proceeding by or before any Governmental Authority with respect to any of the Contemplated Transactions (and shall keep the other party informed as to the status of any such legal proceeding or threat); and (iii) any request by any official of any Governmental Authority for any amendment or supplement to any filing made pursuant to this Agreement or any information required to comply with any legal requirement applicable to any of the Contemplated Transactions. Whenever any event occurs that is required to be set forth in an amendment or supplement to any filing made pursuant to Section 7.7(a), the Company or Murata, as the case may be, shall (promptly upon learning of the occurrence of such event) inform the other of the occurrence of such event and cooperate in filing with the applicable Governmental Authority such amendment or supplement.

 

(d)           Subject to Section 7.7(e), each of the Company and Murata shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to take, or cause to be taken, all actions necessary to consummate the purchase and sale of the Shares to be acquired by Murata hereunder on a timely basis, including satisfying the CFIUS Condition.

 

(e)           Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in Section 7.7(d) or elsewhere in this Agreement, neither the Company nor Murata shall have any obligation under this Agreement to enter into a Commercial Agreement unless such agreement is acceptable to such party in its sole discretion.  Furthermore, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in Section 7.7(d) or elsewhere in this Agreement, the Company shall have no obligation under this Agreement to: (i) propose, negotiate, commit to or effect, by consent decree, hold separate order or otherwise, the sale, divestiture, disposition, holding separate or license (or similar arrangement) of, or limit the Company’s freedom of action with respect to, any of the businesses, product lines or assets of the Company or any of its subsidiaries, or otherwise propose, proffer or agree to any other requirement, obligation, condition, limitation or restriction on any of the businesses, product lines or assets of the Company or any of its subsidiaries; (ii) commence or contest, or cause any of its subsidiaries or Affiliates to commence or contest, any litigation in which a Governmental Authority is a party relating to any of the Contemplated Transactions; (iii) amend or modify any of the Company’s rights or obligations under this Agreement or any Commercial Agreement; or (iv) directly or indirectly restructure or commit to restructure any of the Contemplated Transactions.

8.9          Solely with respect to the Company’s sale to Murata of the Shares to be acquired by it hereunder, (i) the Commercial Agreement shall have been entered into and shall be in full force and effect and (ii) either (a) the CFIUS Condition shall have been satisfied, or (b) the Company and Murata shall have determined in good faith that a Joint Voluntary Notice is neither required nor warranted for the Contemplated Transactions, and the Company shall have provided the CFIUS Warranty to Murata.

ARTICLE X

INDEMNIFICATION

 

10.1        Company’s Obligation to Indemnify. In consideration of the Buyers’ execution and delivery of this Agreement and acquiring the Shares hereunder, and in addition to all of

 

23


 

the Company’s other obligations under this Agreement, the Company hereby agrees to defend and indemnify each Buyer and each Buyer’s Affiliates and subsidiaries, and their respective directors, officers, employees, agents and representatives, and the successors and assigns of each of them (collectively, the “Buyer Indemnified Parties”) and the Company does hereby agree to hold the Buyer Indemnified Parties harmless, from and against any and all Claims or Losses made, brought or asserted against, or incurred by, the Buyer Indemnified Parties, or any one of them, and the Company hereby agrees to pay or reimburse the Buyer Indemnified Parties for any and all Claims payable by any of the Buyer Indemnified Parties to any Person, including reasonable attorneys’ and paralegals’ fees and expenses, court costs, settlement amounts, costs of investigation and interest thereon from the time such amounts are due at the highest non-usurious rate of interest permitted by applicable Law, through all negotiations, mediations, arbitrations, trial and appellate levels, as a result of, or arising out of, or relating to: (i) any misrepresentation or breach of any representation or warranty made by the Company in this Agreement, the Transaction Documents or any other certificate, instrument or document contemplated hereby or thereby; (ii) any breach of any covenant, agreement or Obligation of the Company contained in this Agreement, the Transaction Documents or any other certificate, instrument or document contemplated hereby or thereby; or (iii) any Claims brought or made against the Buyer Indemnified Parties, or any one of them, by any Person and arising out of or resulting from the execution, delivery, performance or enforcement of this Agreement, the Transaction Documents or any other instrument, document or agreement executed pursuant hereto or thereto, any transaction financed or to be financed in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, with the proceeds of the issuance of the Shares, or the status of the Buyers of any of the Shares, as a buyer and holder of such Shares in the Company. To the extent that the foregoing undertaking by the Company may be unenforceable for any reason, the Company shall make the maximum contribution to the payment and satisfaction of each of the Claims covered hereby, which is permissible under applicable Law. The Company will not be liable to any Buyer under this indemnity: (i) for any settlement by a Buyer in connection with any Claim effected without the Company’s prior written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed; or (ii) to the extent, but only to the extent, that a Claim is attributable to any Buyer’s breach of any of the representations, warranties, covenants or agreements made by such Buyer in this Agreement or in the other Transaction Documents.

 

ARTICLE XI
MATTERS RELATING TO THE BUYERS

 

11.1        Independent Nature of Buyers’ Obligations and Rights. The obligations of each Buyer under this Agreement and the Transaction Documents are several and not joint with the obligations of any other Buyer, and no Buyer shall be responsible in any way for the performance of the obligations of any other Buyer under any one or more of the Transaction Documents. The decision of each Buyer to purchase the Shares pursuant to the Transaction Documents has been made by each such Buyer independently of any other Buyer and independently of any information, materials, statements or opinions as to the business, affairs, operations, assets, properties, liabilities, results of operations, condition (financial or otherwise) or prospects of the Company or of its subsidiaries, if any, which may have been made or given by any other Buyer or any of their respective officers, directors, principals, employees, agents, counsel or representatives (collectively, including the Buyer in question, the “Buyer Representatives”). No Buyer Representative shall have any liability to any other Buyer or the Company relating to or arising from any such information, materials, statements or opinions, if any. Each Buyer acknowledges that no other Buyer has acted as agent for such

 

24


 

Buyer in connection with making its investment hereunder and that no Buyer will be acting as agent of such other Buyer in connection with monitoring its investment in the Shares or enforcing its rights under the Transaction Documents. Each Buyer 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 Buyer to be joined as an additional party in any Proceeding for such purpose. The Company and each of the Buyers acknowledge that, for reasons of administrative convenience the Company has elected to provide each of the Buyers with the same Transaction Documents for the purpose of closing a transaction with multiple Buyers and not because it was required or requested to do so by any Buyer. In furtherance of the foregoing, and not in limitation thereof, the Company and the Buyers acknowledge that nothing contained in this Agreement or in any Transaction Document, and no action taken by any Buyer pursuant thereto, shall be deemed to constitute any two or more Buyers as a partnership, an association, a joint venture or any other kind of entity, or create a presumption that the Buyers are in any way acting in concert or as a group with respect to such obligations or the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents.

 

11.2        Equal Treatment of Buyers. No consideration shall be offered or paid to any Buyer to amend or consent to a waiver or modification of any provision of any of the Transaction Documents, unless the same consideration is also offered to all of the other Buyers parties to the Transaction Documents.

 

ARTICLE XII

TERMINATION

 

12.1        Termination. This Agreement may be terminated prior to the Closing (i) by mutual written agreement of the Company and a Buyer (as to itself but no other Buyer), (ii) by either the Company or a Buyer other than Murata (as to itself but no other Buyer) upon written notice to the other, if the Initial Closing shall not have taken place by 5:00 p.m., Los Angeles time on August 16, 2019, or such later date approved by the Company’s Board of Directors, but in no event later than August 30, 2019 (“Outside Closing Date”), (iii) by either the Company or Murata, upon written notice to the other, following a Final CFIUS Turndown, (iv) by either the Company or Murata, upon written notice to the other, if the Commercial Agreement has not been entered into by 5:00 p.m., Los Angeles time on September 30, 2019, or (v) by either the Company or Murata, upon written notice to the other, if the Closing of the purchase and sale of Shares to Murata shall not have taken place by 5:00 p.m., Los Angeles time on the earlier of (A) the tenth (10th) business day following the date the CFIUS Condition has been satisfied and (B) October 31, 2019; provided, that the right to terminate this Agreement under this Section 12.1 shall not be available to any party whose failure to comply with its obligations under this Agreement has been the cause of or resulted in the failure of the Closing to occur on or before such time.

 

12.2        Consequences of Termination. No termination of this Agreement shall release any party from any liability for breach by such party of the terms and provisions of this Agreement or the other Transaction Documents.

13.2        Entire Agreement. This Agreement, including the Exhibits and Schedules attached hereto and the documents delivered pursuant hereto, including the Transaction Documents, set forth all the promises, covenants, agreements, conditions and understandings between the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof and thereof, and supersede all prior and contemporaneous agreements, understandings, inducements or conditions, expressed or implied, oral or written, except as contained herein and in the Transaction Documents; provided, however, except as explicitly stated herein, nothing contained in this Agreement or any other Transaction Document shall (or shall be deemed to) (i) have any effect on any agreements any Buyer has entered into with, or any instruments any Buyer has received from, the Company prior to the date hereof with respect to any prior investment made by such Buyer in the Company or (ii) waive, alter, modify or amend in any respect any obligations of the Company, or any rights of or benefits to any Buyer or any other Person, in any agreement entered into prior to the date hereof between or among the Company and any Buyer, or any instruments any Buyer received from the Company prior to the date hereof, and all such agreements and instruments shall continue in full force and effect.

 

13.3        Successors and Assigns.

Subject to the foregoing and except as otherwise provided herein, the provisions of this Agreement shall inure to the benefit of, and

 

26


 

be binding upon, the successors, assigns, heirs, executors and administrators of the parties hereto.

 

13.4        Binding Effect. This Agreement shall be binding upon the parties hereto, their respective successors and permitted assigns.

 

13.5        Amendment. Except as specifically set forth herein, neither the Company nor any Buyer makes any representation, warranty, covenant or undertaking with respect to such matters. For clarification purposes, the Recitals are part of this Agreement. No provision of this Agreement may be amended other than by an instrument in writing signed by the Company and the Required Buyers. Any amendment to any provision of this Agreement made in conformity with the provisions of this Section 13.5 shall be binding on all Buyers and holders of Shares, as applicable, provided that no such amendment shall be effective to the extent that it (1) applies to less than all of the holders of the Shares then outstanding or (2) imposes any obligation or liability on any Buyer without such Buyer’s prior written consent (which may be granted or withheld in such Buyer’s sole discretion). No waiver shall be effective unless it is in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the waiving party, provided that the Required Buyers may waive any provision of this Agreement, and any waiver of any provision of this Agreement made in conformity with the provisions of this Section 13.5 shall be binding on all Buyers and holders of Shares, as applicable, provided that no such waiver shall be effective to the extent that it (1) applies to less than all of the holders of the Shares then outstanding (unless a party gives a waiver as to itself only) or (2) imposes any obligation or liability on any Buyer without such Buyer’s prior written consent (which may be granted or withheld in such Buyer’s sole discretion). No consideration shall be offered or paid to any Person to amend or consent to a waiver or modification of any provision of any of the Transaction Documents unless the same consideration also is offered to all of the parties to the Transaction Documents who are holders of Shares. The Company has not, directly or indirectly, made any agreements with any Buyers relating to the terms or conditions of the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents except as set forth in the Transaction Documents or, with respect to Murata, the Commercial Agreement. Without limiting the foregoing, the Company confirms that, except as set forth in this Agreement, no Buyer has made any commitment or promise or has any other obligation to provide any financing to the Company or otherwise. As a material inducement for each Buyer to enter into this Agreement, the Company expressly acknowledges and agrees that no due diligence or other investigation or inquiry conducted by a Buyer, any of its advisors or any of its representatives shall affect such Buyer’s right to rely on, or shall modify or qualify in any manner or be an exception to any of, the Company’s representations and warranties contained in this Agreement or any other Transaction Document. “Required Buyers” means Buyers holding and/or subscribing hereunder for a majority of the Shares sold or to be sold pursuant to this Agreement.

13.8        Headings. The article and section headings contained in this Agreement are inserted for convenience only and shall not affect in any way the meaning or interpretation of the Agreement.

 

13.9        Governing Law; Consent to Jurisdiction. This Agreement shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the internal laws of the State of California without regard to the choice of law principles thereof. Each of the parties hereto irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the State of California located in Los Angeles County and the United States District Court for the Central District for the purpose of any suit, action, proceeding or judgment relating to or arising out of this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby. Service of process in connection with any such suit, action or proceeding may be served on each party hereto anywhere in the world by the same methods as are specified for the giving of notices under this Agreement. Each of the parties hereto irrevocably consents to the jurisdiction of any such court in any such suit, action or proceeding and to the laying of venue in such court. Each party hereto irrevocably waives any objection to the laying of venue of any such suit, action or proceeding brought in such courts and irrevocably waives any claim that any such suit, action or proceeding brought in any such court has been brought in an inconvenient forum.  If either party shall commence an action or proceeding to enforce any provisions of the Transaction Documents, then the prevailing party in such action or proceeding shall be reimbursed by the other party for its reasonable attorneys’ fees and other costs and expenses incurred with the investigation, preparation and prosecution of such action or proceeding.

13.13      Joint Preparation. The preparation of this Agreement has been a joint effort of the parties and the resulting documents shall not, solely as a matter of judicial construction, be construed more severely against one of the parties than the other.

 

13.14      Severability.

28


 

13.15      No Third Party Beneficiaries. This Agreement is intended for the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective permitted successors and assigns, and is not for the benefit of, nor may any provision hereof be enforced by, any other Person.

 

13.16      Compliance with Federal Law. The Company shall: (i) ensure that no Person who owns a controlling interest in or otherwise controls the Company is or shall at any time be listed on the Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Person List or other similar lists maintained by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”), the Department of the Treasury, included in any Executive Orders or in any other similar lists of any Governmental Authority; (ii) not use or permit the use of the proceeds of the purchase of the Shares to violate any of the foreign asset control regulations of OFAC or any enabling statute, Executive Order relating thereto or any other requirements or restrictions imposed by any Governmental Authority; and (iii) comply with all applicable Lender Secrecy Act (“BSA”) laws and regulations, as amended.
