(a) The terms of the Confidentiality Agreement, dated as of February 9, 2012, between Parent and Buyer (the “Confidentiality Agreement”) are hereby incorporated herein by reference and shall continue in full force and effect until the Closing, at which time such Confidentiality Agreement shall terminate.

(b) After the Closing Date and until the fourth (4th) anniversary of the Closing Date, Parent shall (and shall cause its Affiliates to) afford to Buyer and its advisors, upon reasonable notice, reasonable access, during normal business hours, to the Books, Records and Files (including accountants’ work papers) relating to the Business for periods up to and including the Closing Date that are retained by Parent and its Affiliates pursuant to the terms of this Agreement (and shall permit such Persons to examine and copy such books and records to the extent reasonably requested by such party) and Parent shall cause its advisors to furnish, at Buyer’s sole cost and expense, such information as may be reasonably requested by Buyer or its advisors in connection with financial reporting matters and other similar business purposes (either in electronic or hard copy format); provided, that nothing in this Section 5.01(b) shall require Parent or any of its Affiliates or advisors to furnish to Buyer or its advisors any materials prepared by Parent’s financial or legal advisors that are subject to an attorney-client privilege or an attorney work-product privilege or which may not be disclosed pursuant to a protective Order; and provided further, that nothing in this Section 5.01(b) shall require Parent or any of its Affiliates or advisors to afford access to Books, Records and Files or provide information if Parent or its Affiliates are contractually or otherwise restricted by a third party from doing so. Parent shall, and shall cause its Affiliates to, maintain all such Books, Records and Files, and shall not destroy or dispose of any such Books, Records and Files, until the fourth (4th) anniversary of the Closing Date.

Neither Parent nor Buyer shall knowingly take any action that would have the effect of materially delaying, impairing or impeding the receipt of any authorizations, consents, orders and approvals of any Governmental Authority; provided, however, that in no way shall reasonable and timely negotiations in good faith by Buyer with any applicable Governmental Authority in order to obtain such authorization, consent, order or approval be deemed to constitute an act materially delaying, impairing, or impeding the receipt of authorizations, consents, orders and approvals of such Governmental Authority. Parent and Buyer each agree to make, or to cause to be made, (i) an appropriate filing of a notification and report form pursuant to the antitrust Laws of any relevant jurisdiction and (ii) any other filing or notification required by any other applicable Law, in each case, with respect to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement as promptly as reasonably practicable, and to supply promptly any additional information and documentary material that may be requested pursuant to the antitrust Laws of any relevant jurisdiction or any other applicable Law.

Subject to the Confidentiality Agreement, the parties to this Agreement will coordinate and cooperate fully with each other in exchanging such information and providing such assistance as the other party may reasonably request in connection with the foregoing and in seeking early termination of any applicable waiting periods including under the antitrust Laws of any relevant jurisdiction. Subject to the Confidentiality Agreement, the parties to this Agreement will provide each other with copies of all material correspondence, filings or communications between them or any of their representatives, on the one hand, and any Governmental Authority or members of its staff, on the other hand, with respect to this Agreement and the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

(a) Parent shall retain the ownership of any Trademarks that are used both in the Business and any other business of Parent, that are not used exclusively in, or related exclusively to, the Business and that do not include the name “Boston Scientific” (the “Parent Non-Business Licensed Marks”). Buyer and its Affiliates shall have no right to use in any way the Parent Non-Business Licensed Marks.

(b) Parent shall retain the ownership of the trade name “Boston Scientific” and any Trademarks that include the name “Boston Scientific” that are used in the Business as of the Closing (the

 

- 15 -


Parent Business Licensed Marks” and, together with the Parent Non-Business Licensed Marks, the “Licensed Marks”). Except as expressly provided in this Section 5.04, Buyer and its Affiliates shall have no right to use in any way Parent Business Licensed Marks.

(i) Subject to the terms and conditions contained herein, effective as of the Closing Parent hereby grants to Buyer and its Affiliates, for a period of six (6) months after the Closing, a non-exclusive, non-assignable, worldwide and royalty-free license, right and privilege to use the Parent Business Licensed Marks on any packages and labels of the products of the Business (“Materials”) used in the Business as of the Closing for the sole purpose of the operation of the Business by Buyer and its Affiliates after the Closing.

(ii) Effective upon the six (6) month anniversary of the Closing, Buyer and its Affiliates shall not use the Parent Business Licensed Marks in connection with the Business or otherwise.

(c) As soon as reasonably practicable after the Closing, but in no event later than ninety (90) days after the Closing, Buyer shall cease to use and shall remove or cover the name “Boston Scientific” from all signs, telephone listings, stationary, office forms or other similar materials of the Business, unless such use is required by a Governmental Authority.

(d) Buyer, on behalf of itself and its Affiliates, acknowledges and agrees that Parent is the owner of all right, title, and interest in and to the Licensed Marks, and all such right, title, and interest shall remain with Parent and its Affiliates. All rights to Licensed Marks not expressly granted to Buyer and/or its Affiliates under this Agreement shall remain the exclusive property of Parent and its Affiliates. Buyer shall not (and shall ensure its Affiliates do not) otherwise contest, dispute, or challenge the right, title, and interest of Parent and its Affiliates in and to the Licensed Marks. Buyer shall not (and shall ensure its Affiliates do not) file applications to register any Trademarks or apply for any domain names in any jurisdiction worldwide that are (i) confusingly similar to any of the Licensed Marks or (ii) consist of, in whole or part, any of the Licensed Marks. All goodwill and improved reputation generated by Buyer’s or its Affiliates’ use of the Licensed Marks shall inure to the benefit of Parent.

(e) Buyer shall not (and shall ensure its Affiliates do not) otherwise contest, dispute, or challenge the right, title, and interest of Parent and its Affiliates in and to all Trademarks of Parent and its Affiliates, other than Trademarks which constitute Business Transferred Intellectual Property.

SECTION 5.05. Further Action.

(a) Each of Parent, Sellers and Buyer shall (and each shall cause each of its respective Affiliates to) use commercially reasonable efforts to take, or cause to be taken, all appropriate action, to do or cause to be done all things necessary, proper or advisable under applicable Law and the agreements included in the Purchased Assets, and to execute and deliver such documents and other papers and any other agreements, as may be necessary to carry out the provisions of this Agreement and consummate and make effective the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or to effect the separation of the Business and the Purchased Assets from other assets of Parent and its Affiliates.

(b) To the extent that any of the transfers, distributions, deliveries and the assumptions required to be made in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement shall not have been so consummated at Closing and subject to the terms of the Ancillary Agreements to the extent addressed thereby, the parties shall cooperate and use commercially reasonable efforts to effect such consummation as promptly thereafter as reasonably practicable, including executing and delivering

 

- 16 -


such further instruments of transfer and taking such other actions as the parties may reasonably request in order to effectuate the purposes of this Agreement or to more effectively transfer to Buyer or confirm Buyer’s right, title to or interest in, all of Sellers’ rights to the Purchased Assets, to put Buyer in actual possession and operating control thereof and to permit Buyer to exercise all of Sellers’ rights with respect thereto (including rights under contracts and other arrangements as to which the consent of any third party to the transfer thereof shall not have previously been obtained). In the event and to the extent that Parent or Buyer is unable to obtain any required consents, Parent or the applicable Seller shall (i) continue to be bound thereby pending assignment to Buyer, (ii) at the direction and expense of Buyer, pay, perform and discharge fully all of its obligations thereunder from and after the Closing and prior to assignment to Buyer, (iii) exercise or exploit its rights and options under all such agreements, leases, licenses and other rights and commitments when and only as reasonably directed by Buyer, and (iv) without further consideration therefor, pay, assign and remit to Buyer promptly all monies, rights and other consideration received in respect of such agreements to the extent such amounts constitute Purchased Assets, and subject in each case to the terms of the Ancillary Agreements to the extent the same may apply; provided, however, that none of Parent nor any of its Affiliates shall be obligated to transfer or license to Buyer any Business Intellectual Property licensed from third parties that, despite the use by Parent and its Affiliates of such efforts, is incapable of being transferred or licensed; and provided, further, that none of Parent nor any of its Affiliates shall be obligated to pay any consideration or incur any expenses in connection with any of the foregoing. If and when any such consent shall be obtained or such agreement, lease, license or other right shall otherwise become assignable, Parent or the applicable Seller shall promptly assign all its rights and obligations thereunder to Buyer without payment of further consideration and Buyer shall, without the payment of any further consideration therefor, assume such rights and obligations.

(c) In the event that Buyer can demonstrate that certain assets, rights or properties which properly constitute Purchased Assets (other than any Contracts) were not transferred to Buyer at Closing, then Parent shall use commercially reasonable efforts to take all steps reasonably necessary to transfer and deliver any and all of such Purchased Assets to Buyer without the payment by Buyer of any further consideration therefor. In the event that Parent can demonstrate that certain assets which do not properly constitute Purchased Assets were transferred to Buyer at Closing, then Buyer shall promptly take all steps reasonably necessary to transfer and deliver any and all of such assets to Parent without the payment by Parent of any further consideration therefor.

(d) Buyer shall be responsible for all costs of physically transferring the Purchased Assets from Sellers to Buyer (including all shipping and handling costs and the costs of scanning any files requested to be transferred in electronic form).

SECTION 5.06. Covenant Not to Sue. Buyer, on behalf of itself and each of its Affiliates, successors and assigns and licensees, hereby covenants and agrees that it will not, individually or collectively, directly or indirectly, initiate, commence or prosecute any lawsuit or other action, or otherwise assert against Parent or any of its Affiliates, their successors and assigns or any of their licensees or distributors, any claims, alleging that the manufacture, having manufactured, marketing, offer of sale, sale, use, import or export of any products by Parent and its Affiliates outside the Field infringe any claims of any Business Intellectual Property. Buyer shall ensure that any assignment or transfer of any Business Intellectual Property (whether directly or by operation of law) to a Person not directly bound by this covenant not to sue shall be subject to this covenant not to sue (including by causing each such Person to agree in writing in a legally binding way to abide by such covenant not to sue, naming Parent as a third-party beneficiary of such agreement to abide). Nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed or interpreted to limit or restrict in any way Buyer’s right to develop, market and sell any products utilizing any of the Business Transferred Intellectual Property.

 

- 17 -


SECTION 5.07. Employment Matters. Schedule 5.07(a) attached hereto lists the employees of Parent or any of its Affiliates who have been performing services primarily for the Business (the “Transferred Employees”). Buyer shall offer employment to the Transferred Employees immediately following the Closing. Buyer shall offer employment to all Transferred Employees who are RMMS service technicians (no including RMMS management or office administration) immediately following the Closing at an annual compensation level no less than 90% of their current level with Parent or its Affiliates for a position within 35 miles of their current location of employment for a duration of no less than six (6) months following the Closing Date.

(iii) the Assumed Liabilities.

SECTION 7.04. Limits on Indemnification.

(a) General. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, neither party hereto shall have any Liability under this Article VII for any punitive, incidental, consequential, special or indirect damages.

(b) Losses. For all purposes of this Article VII, “Losses” shall be net of (i) any insurance or other recoveries actually paid to an indemnified party or its Affiliates in connection with the facts giving rise to the right of indemnification, and (ii) any Tax benefit to which an indemnified party or any of its Affiliates is or will be entitled in connection with the facts giving rise to the right of indemnification.

(d) Maximum Liability. The maximum aggregate liability of Parent for indemnification under this Article VII will not exceed a maximum amount equal to Two Hundred Thousand Dollars ($200,000), provided that this cap on Parent’s aggregate liability shall not apply to (i) any Losses related to a breach by Sellers of Section 3.05 for which Parent’s maximum aggregate liability shall be limited to the amount of the Purchase Price actually paid to Parent, or (ii) Parent’s liability for product liability claims under Section 7.02(iii) which shall not be capped.

(e) Time Limit. Parent will not be liable for any Losses pursuant to Section 7.02(ii) unless a written claim for indemnification is given by the Buyer to Parent with respect thereto prior to the expiration of the applicable survival period set forth in Section 7.01 relating to the relevant representation and warranty.

(f) Sole Remedy. From and after the Closing the respective indemnification rights of the parties under this Article VII shall be the sole and exclusive rights and remedies available to such

 

- 19 -


parties with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement, and each of the parties hereby absolutely agrees and covenants not to seek any remedy at law or equity other than pursuant to this Article VII except in the case of actual fraud. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, except as specifically authorized by this Article VII, the Buyer and Sellers hereby waive, release and disclaim any claims, rights or remedies arising in tort, by statute, or otherwise, with respect to Losses arising out of or relating to the transactions contemplated hereby, including without limitation, any claims, rights or remedies for negligent misrepresentation, fraud, or suppression of material fact.

SECTION 7.05. Notice of Loss; Third Party Claims. (a) An indemnified party shall give the indemnifying party notice of any matter that an indemnified party has determined has given or could give rise to a right of indemnification under this Agreement, within thirty (30) days of such determination, stating the amount of the Loss, if known, and method of computation thereof, and containing a reference to the provisions of this Agreement in respect of which such right of indemnification is claimed or arises.

(b) If an indemnified party shall receive notice of any Action from or involving any third party that the indemnified party believes is reasonably likely to give rise to a right of indemnification under this Article VII (each, a “Third Party Claim”), then, as promptly as practicable after the receipt of such notice, the indemnified party shall give the indemnifying party notice of such Third Party Claim, stating the amount of the Loss, if known, and method of computation thereof and containing a reference to the provisions of this Agreement in respect of which such right of indemnification is claimed or arises; provided, however, that the failure to provide such notice shall not release the indemnifying party from any of its obligations under this Article VII except to the extent that such failure actually results in a detriment to the indemnifying party and shall not relieve the indemnifying party from any other Liability that it may have to any indemnified party other than under this Article VII. The indemnifying party shall be entitled to assume and control the defense of such Third Party Claim at its expense and through counsel reasonably satisfactory to the indemnified person if it gives notice of its intention to do so to the indemnified party within thirty (30) days of the receipt of such notice from the indemnified party. 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 reasonably 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 to direct the defense of any such claim or proceeding, it shall not consent to the entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement with respect to such Third Party Claim without the prior written consent of the indemnified party unless such judgment or settlement (i) contains a complete release of the indemnified party, (ii) does not require the indemnified party to pay any monetary obligation, and (iii) does not include any admission of wrongdoing, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. No indemnifying party shall be liable for any settlement of a Third Party Claim effected without such indemnifying party’s prior written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.

SECTION 7.06. Tax Treatment of Indemnity Payments. For all Tax purposes, the parties agree to treat all payments made under any indemnity provisions contained in this Agreement as adjustments to the Purchase Price, except to the extent applicable Law requires otherwise.

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) to the extent permitted by applicable Law, 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 10.09. No Third Party Beneficiaries.

exclusive of any other remedy conferred hereby, or by Law or equity upon such party, and the exercise by a party of any one remedy will not preclude the exercise of any other remedy. The parties hereto agree that irreparable damage would occur in the event that any provision of this Agreement is not performed in accordance with its specific terms or is otherwise breached. It is accordingly agreed that the parties shall be entitled to seek an injunction or injunctions to prevent breaches of this Agreement and to enforce specifically the terms and provisions hereof in any court of the United States or any state having jurisdiction, this being in addition to any other remedy to which they are entitled at Law or in equity.

SECTION 10.11. Interpretive Rules. The words “hereof,” “herein” and “hereunder” and words of similar import when used in this Agreement refer to this Agreement as a whole and not to any particular provision of this Agreement, and all Article and Section references are to this Agreement unless otherwise specified. The words “include,” “includes” and “including” will be deemed to be followed by the phrase “without limitation.” The word “days” means calendar days unless otherwise specified herein. The table of contents and headings contained in this Agreement are for reference purposes only and shall not affect in any way the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement. No provision of this Agreement shall be construed to require either party or their respective officers, directors, subsidiaries or Affiliates to take any action which would violate or conflict with any applicable Law. The word “if” means “if and only if.” The word “or” shall not be exclusive. The meanings given to terms defined herein will be equally applicable to both the singular and plural forms of such terms. Whenever the context may require, any pronoun includes the corresponding masculine, feminine and neuter forms. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all references to “dollars” or “$” will be deemed references to the lawful money of the United States of America.

SECTION 10.12. Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. All Actions arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be heard and determined exclusively in any Massachusetts federal court; provided, however, that if such federal court does not have jurisdiction over such Action, such Action shall be heard and determined primarily in any state court sitting in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Consistent with the preceding sentence, the parties hereto hereby (a) submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of any federal or state court sitting in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for the purpose of any Action arising out of or relating to this Agreement brought by either party hereto and (b) irrevocably waive, and agree not to assert by way of motion, defense, or otherwise, in any such Action, any claim that it is not subject personally to the jurisdiction of the above-named courts, that its property is exempt or immune from attachment or execution, that the Action is brought in an inconvenient forum, that the venue of the Action is improper, or that this Agreement or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement may not be enforced in or by any of the above-named courts. Each party further irrevocably consents to the service of process out of any of the aforementioned courts in any such Action by the mailing of copies thereof by mail to such party at its address set forth in this Agreement, such service of process to be effective upon acknowledgment of receipt by registered mail; provided, however, that nothing in this Section 10.12 shall affect the right of any party to serve legal process in any other manner permitted by law. The consent to jurisdiction set forth in this Section 10.12 shall not constitute a general consent to service of process in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and shall have no effect for any purpose except as provided in this Section 10.12.

SECTION 10.13. Waiver of Jury Trial. EACH OF THE PARTIES HERETO HEREBY WAIVES TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY WITH RESPECT TO ANY LITIGATION DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF, UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED BY THIS AGREEMENT.
