10.3        Indemnification Procedure for Third-Party Claims.

 

(a)In the event that any party (the “Indemnified Person”) desires to make a claim against any other party (the “Indemnifying Person”) in connection with any Losses for which the Indemnified Person may seek indemnification hereunder in respect of a claim or demand made by any Person not a party to this Agreement against the Indemnified Person (a “Third-Party Claim”), such Indemnified Person must notify the Indemnifying Person in writing, of the Third-Party Claim (a “Third-Party Claim Notice”) as promptly as reasonably possible after receipt, but in no event later than fifteen (15) calendar days after receipt, by such Indemnified Person of notice of the Third-Party Claim; provided, that failure to give a Third-Party Claim Notice on a timely basis shall not affect the indemnification provided hereunder except to the extent the Indemnifying Person shall have been actually and materially prejudiced as a result of such failure. Upon receipt of the Third-Party Claim Notice from the Indemnified Person, the Indemnifying Person shall be entitled, at the Indemnifying Person’s election, to assume or participate in the defense of any Third-Party Claim at the cost of Indemnifying Person. In any case in which the Indemnifying Person assumes the defense of the Third-Party Claim, the Indemnifying Person shall give the Indemnified Person ten (10) calendar days’ notice prior to executing any settlement agreement and the Indemnified Person shall have the right to approve or reject the settlement and related expenses; provided, however, that upon rejection of any settlement and related expenses, the Indemnified Person shall assume control of the defense of such Third-Party Claim and the liability of the Indemnifying Person with respect to such Third-Party Claim shall be limited to the amount or the monetary equivalent of the rejected settlement and related expenses.

 

(b)The Indemnified Person shall retain the right to employ its own counsel and to discuss matters with the Indemnifying Person related to the defense of any Third-Party Claim, the defense of which has been assumed by the Indemnifying Person pursuant to Section 10.3(a) above, but the Indemnified Person shall bear and shall be solely responsible for its own costs and expenses in connection with such participation; provided, however, that, subject to Section 10.3(a) above, all decisions of the Indemnifying Person shall be final and the Indemnified Person shall cooperate with the Indemnifying Person in all respects in the defense of the Third-Party Claim, including refraining from taking any position adverse to the Indemnifying Person.

 

(c)If the Indemnifying Person fails to give notice of the assumption of the defense of any Third-Party Claim within a reasonable time period not to exceed forty-five (45) days after receipt of the Third-Party Claim Notice from the Indemnified Person, the Indemnifying Person shall no longer be entitled to assume (but shall continue to be entitled to participate in) such defense. The Indemnified Person may, at its option, continue to defend such Third-Party Claim and, in such event, the Indemnifying Person shall indemnify the Indemnified Person for all reasonable fees and expenses in connection therewith (provided it is a Third-Party Claim for which the Indemnifying Person is otherwise obligated to provide indemnification hereunder). The Indemnifying Person shall be entitled to participate at its own expense and with its own counsel in the defense of any Third-Party Claim the defense of which it does not assume. Prior to effectuating any settlement of such Third-Party Claim, the Indemnified Person shall furnish the Indemnifying Person with written notice of any proposed settlement in sufficient time to allow the Indemnifying Person to act thereon. Within fifteen (15) days after the giving of such notice, the Indemnified Person shall be permitted to effect such settlement unless the Indemnifying Person (a) reimburses the Indemnified Person in accordance with the terms of this Article 10 for all reasonable fees and expenses incurred by the Indemnified Person in connection with such Claim; (b) assumes the defense of such Third-Party Claim; and (c) takes such other actions as the Indemnified Person may reasonably request as assurance of the Indemnifying Person’s ability to fulfill its obligations under this Article 10 in connection with such Third-Party Claim.

10.4        Indemnification Procedure for Other Claims. An Indemnified Party wishing to assert a claim for indemnification which is not a Third Party Claim (a “Claim”) shall deliver to the Indemnifying Party a written notice (a “Claim Notice”) which contains (i) a description and, if then known, the amount (the “Claimed Amount”) of any Losses incurred by the Indemnified Party or the method of computation of the amount of such claim of any Losses, (ii) a statement that the Indemnified Party is entitled to indemnification under this Article 10 and a reasonable explanation of the basis therefor, and (iii) a demand for payment in the amount of such Losses. Within thirty (30) days after delivery of a Claim Notice, the Indemnifying Party shall deliver to the Indemnified Party a written response in which the Indemnifying Party shall: (A) agree that the Indemnified Party is entitled to receive all of the Claimed Amount (in which case such response shall be accompanied by delivery to the Escrow Agent of the Claim Notice), (B) agree in a “Counter Notice” that the Indemnified Party is entitled to receive part, but not all, of the Claimed Amount (the “Agreed Amount”), or (C) contest that the Indemnified Party is entitled to receive any of the Claimed Amount including the reasons therefor. If the Indemnifying Party in the Counter Notice or otherwise contests the payment of all or part of the Claimed Amount, the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party shall use good faith efforts to resolve such dispute. If such dispute is not resolved within sixty (60) days following the delivery by the Indemnifying Party of such response, the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party shall each have the right to submit such dispute to a court of competent jurisdiction in accordance with the provisions of Section 12.17.

Losses shall include punitive, indirect, consequential or similar damages only for claims brought by third parties.

 

(b)Any liability for indemnification under this Agreement shall be determined without duplication of recovery due to the facts giving rise to such liability constituting a breach of more than one representation, warranty, covenant or agreement.

 

 22 

 

 

(c)The Indemnified Person agrees to use all reasonable efforts to obtain recovery from any and all third parties who are obligated respecting a Loss (e.g. parties to indemnification agreements, insurance companies, etc.) (“Collateral Sources”) respecting any Claim pursuant to which the Indemnified Person is entitled to indemnification hereunder. If the amount to be netted hereunder from any payment from a Collateral Source is determined after payment of any amount otherwise required to be paid to an Indemnified Person under this Article 10, the Indemnified Person shall repay to the Indemnifying Person, promptly after such receipt from Collateral Source, any amount that the Indemnifying Person would not have had to pay pursuant to this Article 10 had such receipt from the Collateral Source occurred at the time of such payment.

 

(d)Each Indemnified Person shall (and shall cause its Affiliates to) use commercially reasonable efforts to mitigate any claim for Losses that an Indemnified Person asserts under this Article 10.

 

(e)The amount of any and all Losses (and other indemnification payments) under this Agreement shall be decreased by (A) any Tax benefits in excess of Tax detriments actually realized by the applicable Indemnified Person related to the Loss, including deductibility of any such Losses (or other items giving rise to such indemnification payment), and (B) the amount of any insurance proceeds or other amounts recoverable from Collateral Sources (netted against deductibles and other costs associated with making or pursuing any such claims, as applicable), received or to be received by the applicable Indemnified Person with respect to such Losses under any insurance policy maintained by the Indemnified Person or any other Person or from any other Collateral Source. The Indemnified Person will assign to the Indemnifying Person any rights or contribution or subrogation the Indemnified Person may have against or respecting any Collateral Source or other Persons related to such Loss which is indemnified by the Indemnifying Person hereunder.

 

10.6 Certain Limitations. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement: (i) Neither Seller and the Primary Shareholder nor Buyer shall be required to indemnify any party hereunder for their breach of any representation or warranty unless and until the aggregate amount of Losses arising from such types of breaches shall exceed $25,000.00 and at such time as the aggregate amount of Losses exceeds such amount the obligation to indemnify shall include all Losses including the first $25,000.00; and (ii) Seller and the Primary Shareholder shall not be liable to provide indemnification hereunder in an aggregate amount in excess of the value of the Escrow Shares, if any, that are in the possession of the Escrow Agent.

 

10.7 Exclusive Remedies. Each of Buyer, Seller and the Primary Shareholder acknowledges and agrees that, from and after the Closing, its sole and exclusive remedy with respect to any and all Losses based upon, arising out of or otherwise in respect of the matters set forth in this Agreement and the Other Agreements shall be pursuant to the indemnification set forth in this Article 10, and such party shall have no other remedy or recourse with respect to any of the foregoing other than pursuant to, and subject to the terms and conditions of, this Article 10; provided, that the foregoing limitation shall not apply to claims seeking specific performance or other available equitable relief.
