D.

F. Simultaneously with the execution and delivery of this Agreement, the holders of at least 75% of the outstanding Company Warrants have executed and delivered to the Company a Consent and Acknowledgement in a form acceptable to the Purchaser and Pubco (each, an “Option Warrant Acknowledgement”), consenting to the assumption and amendment of their Company Option by Pubco effective as of the Closing in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement;

 

G. The boards of directors of Purchaser, Pubco, Merger Sub and the Company have each (i) determined that the Transactions are fair, advisable and in the best interests of their respective companies and security holders, and (ii) approved this Agreement and the Transactions, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth herein; and

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises set forth above, which are incorporated in this Agreement as if fully set forth below, and the representations, warranties, covenants and agreements contained in this Agreement, and intending to be legally bound hereby, the Parties hereto agree as follows:

 

Article I
MERGER

 

1.1 Merger. At the Effective Time, and subject to and upon the terms and conditions of this Agreement, and in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Delaware Act, Purchaser and Merger Sub shall consummate the Merger, pursuant to which Merger Sub shall be merged with and into Purchaser, following which the separate corporate existence of Merger Sub shall cease and Purchaser shall continue as the surviving corporation. Purchaser, as the surviving corporation after the Merger, is hereinafter sometimes referred to as the “Surviving Corporation” (provided, that references to Purchaser for periods after the Effective Time shall include the Surviving Corporation).

 

1.2 Effective Time. Purchaser and Merger Sub shall cause the Merger to be consummated by filing a Certificate of Merger for the merger of Merger Sub with and into Purchaser (the “Certificate of Merger”) with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware, in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Delaware Act (the time of such filing, or such later time as may be specified in the Certificate of Merger, being the “Effective Time”).

 

1.3 Effect of the Merger. At the Effective Time, the effect of the Merger shall be as provided in this Agreement, the Certificate of Merger and the applicable provisions of the Delaware Act. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, and subject thereto, at the Effective Time, all the property, rights, privileges, agreements, powers and franchises, debts, Liabilities, duties and obligations of Merger Sub and Purchaser shall become the property, rights, privileges, agreements, powers and franchises, debts, Liabilities, duties and obligations of the Surviving Corporation (including all rights and obligations with respect to the Trust Account), which shall include the assumption by the Surviving Corporation of any and all agreements, covenants, duties and obligations of Merger Sub and Purchaser set forth in this Agreement to be performed after the Effective Time.

 

2

 

 

1.4 Organizational Documents of Surviving Corporation. At the Effective Time, the Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws of Purchaser, each as in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time, shall cease and the Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws of Merger Sub, as in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time, shall become the respective Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws of the Surviving Corporation.

 

1.5 Directors and Officers of the Surviving Corporation. At the Effective Time, the board of directors and executive officers of the Surviving Corporation shall be the board of directors and executive officers of Pubco, after giving effect to Section 8.15, each to hold office in accordance with the Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws of the Surviving Corporation until their respective successors are duly elected or appointed and qualified.

 

1.6 Effect of Merger on Issued Securities of Purchaser. At the Effective Time, by virtue of the Merger and without any action on the part of any Party or the holders of securities of Purchaser, Pubco or Merger Sub:

 

(a) Purchaser Units. At the Effective Time, every issued and outstanding Purchaser Unit shall be automatically detached and the holder thereof shall be deemed to hold one share of Purchaser Class A Common Stock, one-half of a Purchaser Warrant and one Purchaser Right in accordance with the terms of the applicable Purchaser Unit, which underlying Purchaser Securities shall be converted in accordance with the applicable terms of this Section 1.6 below.

 

(b) Purchaser Common Stock. At the Effective Time, every issued and outstanding share of Purchaser Common Stock (other than those described in Section 1.6(g) below) shall be converted automatically into one Pubco Ordinary Share, following which, all shares of Purchaser Common Stock shall cease to be outstanding and shall automatically be canceled and shall cease to exist. The holders of certificates previously evidencing shares of Purchaser Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall cease to have any rights with respect to such shares, except as provided herein or by Law. Each certificate previously evidencing shares of Purchaser Common Stock shall be exchanged for a certificate (if requested) representing the same number of Pubco Ordinary Shares upon the surrender of such certificate in accordance with Section 1.7. Each certificate formerly representing shares of Purchaser Common Stock (other those described in Section 1.6(g) below) shall thereafter represent only the right to receive the same number of Pubco Ordinary Shares. To the extent required by Section 262 of the Delaware Act, each certificate formerly representing shares of Purchaser Common Stock owned by holders of Purchaser Common Stock who have validly elected to dissent from the Merger pursuant to Section 262 of the Delaware Act shall thereafter represent only the right to receive fair value for their shares of Purchaser Common Stock in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Delaware Act.

 

(c) Purchaser Preferred Shares. At the Effective Time, every issued and outstanding Purchaser Preferred Share (other than those described in Section 1.6(g) below), if any, shall be converted automatically into one Pubco Preferred Share, following which, all Purchaser Preferred Shares shall cease to be outstanding and shall automatically be canceled and shall cease to exist. The holders of certificates previously evidencing Purchaser Preferred Shares outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall cease to have any rights with respect to such shares, except as provided herein or by Law. Each certificate previously evidencing Purchaser Preferred Shares shall be exchanged for a certificate representing the same number of Pubco Preferred Shares upon the surrender of such certificate in accordance with Section 1.7. Each certificate formerly representing Purchaser Preferred Shares (other those described in Section 1.6(g) below) shall thereafter represent only the right to receive the same number of Pubco Preferred Shares. To the extent required by Section 262 of the Delaware Act, each certificate formerly representing Purchaser Preferred Shares owned by holders of Purchaser Preferred Shares who have validly elected to dissent from the Merger pursuant to Section 262 of the Delaware Act shall thereafter represent only the right to receive fair value for their Purchaser Preferred Shares in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Delaware Act.

 

3

 

 

(d) Purchaser Warrants. At the Effective Time, each outstanding Purchaser Public Warrant shall be converted into one Pubco Public Warrant and each outstanding Purchaser Private Warrant shall be converted into one Pubco Private Warrant. At the Effective Time, the Purchaser Warrants shall cease to be outstanding and shall automatically be canceled and retired and shall cease to exist. Each of the Pubco Public Warrants shall have, and be subject to, substantially the same terms and conditions set forth in the Purchaser Public Warrants, and each of the Pubco Private Warrants shall have, and be subject to, substantially the same terms and conditions set forth in the Purchaser Private Warrants, except that in each case they shall represent the right to acquire Pubco Ordinary Shares in lieu of shares of Purchaser Class A Common Stock. At or prior to the Effective Time, Pubco shall take all corporate action necessary to reserve for future issuance, and shall maintain such reservation for so long as any of the Pubco Warrants remain outstanding, a sufficient number of Pubco Ordinary Shares for delivery upon the exercise of such Pubco Warrants.

 

(e) Purchaser Rights. At the Effective Time, each issued and outstanding Purchaser Right shall be automatically converted into the number of Pubco Ordinary Shares that would have been received by the holder thereof if the Purchaser Right had been converted upon the consummation of a Business Combination in accordance with Purchaser’s Organizational Documents, the IPO Prospectus and the Right Agreement into shares of Purchaser Class A Common Stock, but for such purposes treating it as if such Business Combination had occurred immediately prior to the Effective Time and the shares of Purchaser Class A Common Stock issued upon conversion of the Purchaser Rights had then automatically been converted into Pubco Ordinary Shares in accordance with Section 1.6(b) above. At the Effective Time, the Purchaser Rights shall cease to be outstanding and shall automatically be canceled and retired and shall cease to exist. The holders of certificates previously evidencing Purchaser Rights outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall cease to have any rights with respect to such Purchaser Rights, except as provided herein or by Law. Each certificate formerly representing Purchaser Rights shall thereafter represent only the right to receive Pubco Ordinary Shares as set forth herein.

 

(f) Purchaser UPO. At the Effective Time, the Purchaser UPO shall be cancelled and converted into an identical right to acquire the same securities of Pubco that the holder thereof would have received if the Purchaser UPO were to have been exercised immediately prior to the Effective Time (notwithstanding the provisions thereof prohibiting exercise at such time), including any successor securities to such Pubco securities, and shall no longer represent the right to receive securities of Purchaser.

 

(g) Cancellation of Capital Stock Owned by Purchaser. At the Effective Time, if there are any shares of capital stock of Purchaser that are owned by Purchaser as treasury shares, such shares shall be canceled and extinguished without any conversion thereof or payment therefor.

 

(h) Transfers of Ownership. If any certificate for securities of Purchaser is to be issued in a name other than that in which the certificate surrendered in exchange therefor is registered, it will be a condition of the issuance thereof that the certificate so surrendered will be properly endorsed (or accompanied by an appropriate instrument of transfer) and otherwise in proper form for transfer and that the person requesting such exchange will have paid to Purchaser or any agent designated by it any transfer or other Taxes required by reason of the issuance of a certificate for securities of Purchaser in any name other than that of the registered holder of the certificate surrendered, or established to the satisfaction of Purchaser or any agent designated by it that such tax has been paid or is not payable.

 

4

 

 

(i) No Liability. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 1.6, none of the Surviving Corporation, Pubco or any Party hereto shall be liable to any Person for any amount properly paid to a public official pursuant to any applicable abandoned property, escheat or similar law.

 

1.7 Effect of Merger on Merger Sub and Pubco Capital Shares. At the Effective Time, by virtue of the Merger and without any action on the part of any Party or the holders of any shares of capital stock of Purchaser, Pubco or Merger Sub: (a) all of the shares of Merger Sub Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be converted into an equal number of shares of common stock of the Surviving Corporation, with the same rights, powers and privileges as the shares so converted and shall constitute the only outstanding shares of capital stock of the Surviving Corporation; and (b) all of the shares of Pubco issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be canceled and extinguished without any conversion thereof or payment therefor.

 

1.8 Surrender of Purchaser Certificates. All securities issued upon the surrender of Purchaser Securities in accordance with the terms hereof shall be deemed to have been issued in full satisfaction of all rights pertaining to such securities, provided that any restrictions on the sale and transfer of Purchaser Securities shall also apply to the Pubco Securities so issued in exchange.

 

1.9 Lost, Stolen or Destroyed Purchaser Certificates. In the event any certificates shall have been lost, stolen or destroyed, Pubco shall issue in exchange for such lost, stolen or destroyed certificates or securities, as the case may be, upon the making of an affidavit of that fact by the holder thereof, such securities, as may be required pursuant to Section 1.6; provided, however, that the Surviving Corporation may, in its discretion and as a condition precedent to the issuance thereof, require the owner of such lost, stolen or destroyed certificates to deliver a bond in such sum as it may reasonably direct as indemnity against any claim that may be made against the Surviving Corporation with respect to the certificates alleged to have been lost, stolen or destroyed.

 

1.10 Tax Consequences. The Parties hereby agree and acknowledge that, for U.S. federal income tax purposes, the Merger and the Acquisition, taken together, are intended to qualify as exchanges described in Section 351 of the Code. The Parties hereby agree to file all Tax and other informational returns on a basis consistent with such characterization. Each of the Parties acknowledge and agree that each (i) has had the opportunity to obtain independent legal and tax advice with respect to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, and (ii) is responsible for paying its own Taxes, including any adverse Tax consequences that may result if the Merger and the Acquisition, taken together, does not qualify under Section 351 of the Code.

 

1.11 Taking of Necessary Action; Further Action. If, at any time after the Effective Time, any further action is necessary or desirable to carry out the purposes of this Agreement and to vest the Surviving Corporation with full right, title and possession to all assets, property, rights, privileges, powers and franchises of Purchaser and Merger Sub, the officers and directors of Purchaser and Merger Sub are fully authorized in the name of their respective entities to take, and will take, all such lawful and necessary action, so long as such action is not inconsistent with this Agreement.

Article II
SECURITIES EXCHANGE

 

2.1 Exchange of Company Securities. At the Closing, and subject to and upon the terms and conditions of this Agreement:

 

(a) the Sellers shall sell, transfer, convey, assign and deliver to Pubco, and Pubco shall purchase, acquire and accept from the Sellers, all of the issued and outstanding Company Shares (collectively, the “Purchased Shares”), free and clear of all Liens (other than potential restrictions on resale under applicable securities Laws), and

 

(b) each issued and outstanding Company Convertible Security shall be assumed by Pubco (as so assumed by Pubco, an “Assumed Convertible Security”), and shall continue to be subject to the same terms and conditions set forth in such Company Convertible Security (including the same vesting schedule, if applicable), except that each Company Convertible Security shall be amended as an Assumed Convertible Security such that (i) Pubco Ordinary Shares shall be substituted for any capital shares of the Company that otherwise would have been acquired under such Company Convertible Security, (ii) the number of Pubco Ordinary Shares that can be acquired under such Assumed Company Security shall instead be equal to (as rounded down to the nearest whole number) (A) the number of Company Ordinary Shares (treating Company Preferred Shares on an as-converted to Company Ordinary Share basis, as if the Company had liquidated at such time) which the Company Convertible Security had the right to acquire or convert into immediately prior to the Closing, multiplied by (B) the Conversion Ratio, and (iii) the exercise or conversion price of such Assumed Convertible Security shall be instead equal to (as rounded up to the nearest whole cent) the quotient of (A) the exercise or conversion price of the Company Convertible Security (if not expressed in U.S. dollars, as converted into U.S. Dollars based on the applicable exchange rate using the Fed Noon Buying Rate on the Closing Date), divided by (B) the Conversion Ratio; provided, that with respect to each Company Option that becomes an Assumed Convertible Security (an “Assumed Option”), it shall also be amended to provide that notwithstanding its current vesting schedule or expiration date, (I) it will be exercisable on a cashless basis, (II) fifty percent (50%) of the unvested portion of the Company Option will accelerate and become vested as of the Closing, (III) any remaining unvested portion of the Company Option will vest on the one (1) year anniversary of the Closing Date and (IV) if as of the Closing, after giving effect to clause (II) above, it is (x) vested, it will expire and terminate on the fifteen (15) month anniversary of the Closing Date or (y) unvested, it will expire and terminate on the ninetieth (90th) day after the one (1) year anniversary of the Closing Date.

 

2.2 Exchange Consideration.

 

(a) Subject to and upon the terms and conditions of this Agreement, in full payment for the Purchased Shares, Pubco shall (i) assume the Company Convertible Securities in accordance with Section 2.1(b) and (ii) issue and deliver to each Seller for each Company Share held (treating Company Preferred Shares on an as-converted to Company Ordinary Share basis, as if the Company had liquidated at such time) a number of Pubco Ordinary Shares equal to (x) the Per Share Price, divided by (y) the Redemption Price (with the aggregate Pubco Ordinary Shares issuable to all Sellers hereunder at the Closing (prior to the reduction for and holdback of the Holdback Shares) being the “Exchange Shares”). The number of Exchange Shares issued and delivered to the Sellers at the Closing shall be subject to the reduction and holdback of the Holdback Shares in accordance with Section ‎2.3. Additional Pubco Ordinary Shares may also be issued to the Sellers after the Closing pursuant to Sections 2.7 and 2.8.

 

6

 

 

(b) Schedule 2.2(b) sets forth for illustrative purposes only a sample capitalization table of Pubco immediately after the Closing with certain assumptions set forth therein and assuming for such purposes that the Closing occurred on the date of this Agreement. In the event of any conflict between the sample capitalization table in Schedule 2.2(b) hereto and the terms of this Agreement, the terms of this Agreement shall prevail.

 

2.3 Holdback.

 

(a) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, ten percent (10%) of the Exchange Shares otherwise issuable to the Sellers at the Closing (subject to equitable adjustment for share splits, share dividends, combinations, recapitalizations and the like after the Closing, including to account for any equity securities into which such shares are exchanged or converted, the “Holdback Shares”) shall not be issued by Pubco at the Closing and instead shall be held back and kept in reserve by Pubco to satisfy any indemnity claims made in accordance with the terms of Article IX hereof. To the extent that the Sellers are entitled to receive the Holdback Shares in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, the Holdback Shares shall be allocated among and issued to the Sellers pro rata based on their respective Pro Rata Shares. The Holdback Shares shall serve as a source of payment of the Indemnitees’ indemnity rights pursuant to Article IX. If the Holdback Shares are issued to the Sellers in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, they shall be treated by the Parties as an adjustment to the number of Exchange Shares received by the Sellers pursuant to this Article II.

 

(b) The Holdback Shares shall be issued by Pubco to the Sellers promptly after the date which is twelve (12) months after the Closing Date (the “Holdback Release Date”); provided, however, that the number of Holdback Shares to be so issued after the Holdback Release Date shall be reduced by (up to a maximum equal to the total number of Holdback Shares) (i) the number of Holdback Shares used to satisfy indemnification claims that have been made and resolved in accordance with Article IX hereof on or prior to the Holdback Release Date, and (ii) a number of Holdback Shares necessary to satisfy indemnification claims that have been made in accordance with Article IX hereof and that remain unresolved on or prior to the Holdback Release Date (“Pending Claims”) (with such Holdback Shares under this clause (ii) determined based on the amount of the indemnification claim included in the Claim Notice provided by the Purchaser Representative under Article IX and the Pubco Share Price as of the Holdback Release Date). After the Holdback Release Date, promptly after the final resolution of all Pending Claims, the remaining Holdback Shares, if any, after using the Holdback Shares to satisfy the indemnification obligations for the Pending Claims that have been resolved, shall be issued by Pubco to the Sellers, with each such Seller receiving its Pro Rata Share of such Holdback Shares.

 

2.4 Surrender of Company Securities and Disbursement of Exchange Consideration.

Each Seller, as a shareholder or other security holder of the Company, hereby approves, authorizes and consents to the Company’s execution and delivery of this Agreement and the Ancillary Documents to which it is or is required to be a party or otherwise bound, the performance by the Company of its obligations hereunder and thereunder and the consummation by the Company of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby. Each Seller acknowledges and agrees that the consents set forth herein are intended and shall constitute such consent of the Sellers as may be required (and shall, if applicable, operate as a written shareholder resolution of the Company) pursuant to the Company Organizational Documents, any other agreement in respect of the Company to which any Seller is a party or bound and all applicable Laws.

 

2.6 Termination of Certain Agreements. Without limiting the provisions of Section 12.2, the Company and the Sellers hereby agree that, effective at the Closing, (a) any shareholders, voting or similar agreement among the Company and any of the Sellers or among the Sellers with respect to the Company’s capital shares, including the Amended and Restated Shareholders Agreement, dated as of May 7, 2013, as amended (the “Company Shareholders Agreement”), by and among the Company and the shareholders of the Company named therein, and (b) any registration rights agreement between the Company and its shareholders, in each case of clauses (a) and (b), shall automatically, and without any further action by any of the Parties, terminate in full and become null and void and of no further force and effect.

2.7 Recapture by Sellers of Unused Assumed Options.

2.8 Earnout.

 

(a) After the Closing, subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, the Sellers shall have the contingent right to receive additional consideration from Pubco based on the performance of Pubco and its Subsidiaries, including the Company, during the calendar years 2019 and 2020 (each such calendar year, an “Earnout Year” and such two-year calendar period, the “Earnout Period”) if the requirements as set forth in this Section 2.8 are met. In the event that (A) the Consolidated Revenue for the calendar year ended December 31, 2019 is at least One Hundred and Ninety-Nine Million Singapore Dollars (S$199,000,000) (the “2019 Revenue Target”), and (B) the closing sale price of Pubco Ordinary Shares on the principal securities exchange or securities market on which the Pubco Ordinary Shares are then traded equals or exceeds $11.50 per share (as adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, reorganizations and recapitalizations) (the “2019 Share Price Target”) for any twenty (20) Trading Days within any thirty (30) Trading Day period occurring in the calendar year ended December 31, 2019, then, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Sellers shall be entitled to receive from Pubco, as additional consideration for the Acquisition, an additional Five Hundred Thousand (500,000) Pubco Ordinary Shares (subject to equitable adjustment for share splits, share dividends, combinations, recapitalizations and the like after the Closing, including to account for any equity securities into which such shares are exchanged or converted) (the “2019 Earnout Shares”). In the event that (A) the Consolidated Revenue for the calendar year ended December 31, 2020 is at least Two Hundred and Ninety Million Singapore Dollars (S$290,000,000) (the “2020 Revenue Target” and, each of the 2019 Revenue Target and the 2020 Revenue Target, an “Earnout Revenue Target”), and (B) the closing sale price of Pubco Ordinary Shares on the principal securities exchange or securities market on which the Pubco Ordinary Shares are then traded equals or exceeds $13.00 per share (as adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, reorganizations and recapitalizations) (the “2020 Share Price Target” and, each of the 2019 Share Price Target and the 2020 Share Price Target, an “Earnout Share Price Target”) for any twenty (20) Trading Days within any thirty (30) Trading Day period occurring in the calendar year ended December 31, 2020, then, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Sellers shall be entitled to receive from Pubco, as additional consideration for the Acquisition, an additional Five Hundred Thousand (500,000) Pubco Ordinary Shares (subject to equitable adjustment for share splits, share dividends, combinations, recapitalizations and the like after the Closing, including to account for any equity securities into which such shares are exchanged or converted) (the “2020 Earnout Shares”, and collectively with the 2019 Earnout Shares, the “Earnout Shares”). In the event that the Earnout Revenue Target and Earnout Share Price Target are not both met for any Earnout Year, the Sellers shall not be entitled to receive any Earnout Shares for such Earnout Year. Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) in the event that (A) the 2019 Revenue Target, but not the 2019 Share Price Target, is met for the 2019 calendar year and (B) the closing sale price of Pubco Ordinary Shares on the principal securities exchange or securities market on which the Pubco Ordinary Shares are then traded equals or exceeds $11.50 per share (as adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, reorganizations and recapitalizations) for any twenty (20) Trading Days within any thirty (30) Trading Day period occurring in the calendar year ended December 31, 2020, then the Sellers shall be entitled to receive the 2019 Earnout Shares under this Section 2.8 as if 2019 Share Price Target had been met in the 2019 calendar year (other than the timing of the delivery of the 2019 Earnout Shares as set in forth in Section 2.8(b) below) (the “2019 Lookback Earnout”), and (ii) in the event that (A) the 2020 Revenue Target, but not the 2020 Share Price Target, is met for the 2020 calendar year and (B) the closing sale price of Pubco Ordinary Shares on the principal securities exchange or securities market on which the Pubco Ordinary Shares are then traded equals or exceeds $13.00 per share (as adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, reorganizations and recapitalizations) for any twenty (20) Trading Days within any thirty (30) Trading Day period occurring in the calendar year ended December 31, 2021, then the Sellers shall be entitled to receive the 2020 Earnout Shares under this Section 2.8 as if 2020 Share Price Target had been met in the 2020 calendar year (other than the timing of the delivery of the 2020 Earnout Shares as set in forth in Section 2.8(b) below) (the “2020 Lookback Earnout” and, together with the 2019 Lookback Earnout, the “Lookback Earnouts”).

(b) As soon as practicable (but in any event within ten (10) Business Days) after Pubco’s filing of the annual audited consolidated financial statements for Pubco and its Subsidiaries with the SEC on Form 20-F or 10-K (or other equivalent SEC form) for each Earnout Year, Pubco’s Chief Financial Officer will prepare and deliver to Pubco’s Board of Directors a written statement (each, an “Earnout Statement”) that sets forth such Chief Financial Officer’s determination in accordance with the terms of this Section 2.8 of (i) the Consolidated Revenue for such Earnout Year based on such audited financial statements, (ii) the closing sale price of Pubco Ordinary Shares for each Trading Day of such Earnout Year on the principal securities exchange or securities market on which the Pubco Ordinary Shares are then traded, and (iii) whether the Sellers are entitled to receive Earnout Shares for such Earnout Year as a result of achieving the applicable Earnout Revenue Target and the applicable Earnout Share Price Target. Within thirty (30) days after receipt of the Earnout Statement, the independent directors serving on Pubco’s board of directors at such time that are disinterested in the Earnout Shares (i.e., such independent director is not a Seller, an Affiliate of a Seller, or an officer, director, manager, employee, trustee or beneficiary of a Seller, nor an immediate family member of any of the foregoing) (each, a “Disinterested Independent Director”) shall determine, by vote or consent of a majority of the Disinterested Independent Directors, whether the applicable Earnout Revenue Target and the applicable Earnout Share Price Target were met for such Earnout Year and whether the Sellers are entitled to receive Earnout Shares for such Earnout Year as a result thereof, and such determination by the Disinterested Independent Directors shall be final and binding upon all Parties (other than for fraud). In the event that the Earnout Revenue Target, but not the Earnout Share Price Target, is met for any Earnout Year, the CFO shall monitor, on at least a monthly basis, the closing sale price of Pubco Ordinary Shares for each Trading Day of the subsequent calendar year on the principal securities exchange or securities market on which the Pubco Ordinary Shares are then traded to see if the Sellers are entitled to a Lookback Earnout. If the CFO determines that the Sellers are entitled to a Lookback Earnout, the CFO will notify the Disinterested Independent Directors in writing, and within thirty (30) days after receipt of such written notice from the CFO, the Disinterested Independent Directors shall determine, by vote or consent of a majority of the Disinterested Independent Directors, whether the Sellers are entitled to receive the Lookback Earnout for the applicable Earnout Year as a result of achieving the applicable Earnout Share Price Target in the subsequent calendar year, and such determination by the Disinterested Independent Directors shall be final and binding upon all Parties (other than for fraud). If for any Earnout Year there is a final determination by the Disinterested Independent Directors in accordance with this Section 2.8(b) that the Sellers are entitled to receive Earnout Shares for such Earnout Year (including pursuant to a Lookback Earnout), then such Earnout Shares will be due upon such final determination and Pubco will deliver such shares within ten (10) Business Days thereafter.

 

(c) Following the Closing (including during the Earnout Period), Pubco and its Subsidiaries, including the Target Companies, will be entitled to operate their respective businesses based upon the business requirements of Pubco and its Subsidiaries. Each of Pubco and its Subsidiaries, including the Target Companies will be permitted, following the Closing (including during the Earnout Period), to make changes at its sole discretion to its operations, organization, personnel, accounting practices and other aspects of its business, including actions that may have an impact on the Consolidated Revenue, the share price of Pubco Ordinary Shares and the ability of the Sellers to earn the Earnout Shares, and the Sellers will not have any right to claim the loss of all or any portion of any Earnout Shares or other damages as a result of such decisions.

 

10

 

 

(d) For the avoidance of doubt, the holders of Assumed Convertible Securities shall have no right under this Agreement to receive any of the Earnout Shares or any additional consideration issued to the Sellers after the Closing, and the Assumed Convertible Securities shall not be adjusted in connection with the issuance of any Earnout Shares or other additional consideration issued to the Sellers after the Closing.

9.4 Indemnification Procedures.

 

(a) The Purchaser Representative shall have the sole right to act on behalf of the Indemnitees with respect to any indemnification claims made pursuant to this Article IX, including bringing and settling any indemnification claims hereunder and receiving any notices on behalf of the Indemnitees. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the Parties, including each of the Sellers, hereby agree that the Company shall have the sole right to act on behalf of the Indemnitors with respect to any indemnification claims made pursuant to Section 9.2(a), including defending and settling any indemnification claims hereunder and receiving any notices on behalf of the Indemnitors, including enforcing any rights of the Indemnitors under Section 9.4(c) with respect to Third Party Claims or under Section 9.4(d) with respect to claims that are not Third Party Claims (and any references to the rights of the Indemnitor thereunder with respect to such claims shall instead be a right of the Company), and the Indemnitors, by executing and delivering this Agreement, hereby agree that they shall be bound by any decisions, acts or omissions of the Company with respect thereto. The Indemnitors hereby acknowledge and agree that they shall only be entitled to act on their own behalf with respect to indemnification claims made pursuant to Section 9.2(b).

 

56

 

 

(b) In order to make a claim for indemnification hereunder, the Purchaser Representative on behalf of an Indemnitee must provide written notice (a “Claim Notice”) of such claim to the Indemnitor (or, with respect to a claim under Section 9.2(a), the Company), which Claim Notice shall include (i) a reasonable description of the facts and circumstances which relate to the subject matter of such indemnification claim to the extent then known and (ii) the amount of Losses suffered by the Indemnitee in connection with the claim to the extent known or reasonably estimable (provided, that the Purchaser Representative may thereafter in good faith adjust the amount of Losses with respect to the claim by providing a revised Claim Notice to the Indemnitor (or, with respect to a claim under Section 9.2(a), the Company).

 

(c) In the case of any claim for indemnification under this Article IX arising from a claim of a third party (including any Governmental Authority) (a “Third Party Claim”), the Purchaser Representative must give a Claim Notice with respect to such Third Party Claim to the Indemnitor promptly (but in no event later than thirty (30) days) after the Indemnitee’s receipt of notice of such Third Party Claim; provided, that the failure to give such notice will not relieve the Indemnitor of its indemnification obligations except to the extent that the defense of such Third Party Claim is materially and irrevocably prejudiced by the failure to give such notice. The Indemnitor will have the right to defend and to direct the defense against any such Third Party Claim, in its name and at its expense and with counsel selected by the Indemnitor, unless (i) the Indemnitor fails to acknowledge fully to the Purchaser Representative the obligations of the Indemnitor to the Indemnitee within twenty (20) days after receiving notice of such Third Party Claim or contests, in whole or in part, its indemnification obligations therefor or (ii) at any time while such Third Party Claim is pending, (A) there is a conflict of interest between the Indemnitor and the Purchaser Representative on behalf of the Indemnitee in the conduct of such defense, (B) the applicable third party alleges a Fraud Claim, (C) such claim is criminal in nature, could reasonably be expected to lead to criminal proceedings, or seeks an injunction or other equitable relief against the Indemnitee or (D) the amount of the Third Party Claim exceeds or is reasonably expected to exceed the value of the remaining Holdback Shares (after deducting any amounts for pending but unresolved indemnification claims and resolved but unsatisfied indemnification claims). If the Indemnitor elects, and is entitled, to compromise or defend such Third Party Claim, it will within twenty (20) days (or sooner, if the nature of the Third Party Claim so requires) notify the Purchaser Representative of its intent to do so, and the Purchaser Representative and the Indemnitee will, at the request and expense of the Indemnitor, cooperate in the defense of such Third Party Claim. If the Indemnitor elects not to, or at any time is not entitled under this Section 9.4 to, compromise or defend such Third Party Claim, fails to notify the Purchaser Representative of its election as herein provided or refuses to acknowledge or contests its obligation to indemnify under this Agreement, the Purchaser Representative on behalf of the Indemnitee may pay, compromise or defend such Third Party Claim. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the Indemnitor will have no indemnification obligations with respect to any such Third Party Claim which is settled by the Indemnitee or the Purchaser Representative without the prior written consent of the Indemnitor (which consent will not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned); provided, however, that notwithstanding the foregoing, the Indemnitee will not be required to refrain from paying any Third Party Claim which has matured by a final, non-appealable Order, nor will it be required to refrain from paying any Third Party Claim where the delay in paying such claim would result in the foreclosure of a Lien upon any of the property or assets then held by the Indemnitee or where any delay in payment would cause the Indemnitee material economic loss. The Indemnitor’s right to direct the defense will include the right to compromise or enter into an agreement settling any Third Party Claim; provided, that no such compromise or settlement will obligate the Indemnitee to agree to any settlement that that requires the taking or restriction of any action (including the payment of money and competition restrictions) by the Indemnitee other than the execution of a release for such Third Party Claim and/or agreeing to be subject to customary confidentiality obligations in connection therewith, except with the prior written consent of the Purchaser Representative on behalf of the Indemnitee (such consent to be withheld, conditioned or delayed only for a good faith reason). Notwithstanding the Indemnitor’s right to compromise or settle in accordance with the immediately preceding sentence, the Indemnitor may not settle or compromise any Third Party Claim over the objection of the Purchaser Representative on behalf of the Indemnitee; provided, however, that consent by the Purchaser Representative on behalf of the Indemnitee to settlement or compromise will not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned. The Purchaser Representative on behalf of the Indemnitee will have the right to participate in the defense of any Third Party Claim with counsel selected by it subject to the Indemnitor’s right to direct the defense.

 

57

 

 

(d) With respect to any direct indemnification claim that is not a Third Party Claim, the Indemnitor will have a period of thirty (30) days after receipt of the Claim Notice to respond thereto. If the Indemnitor does not respond within such thirty (30) days, the Indemnitor will be deemed to have accepted responsibility for the Losses set forth in such Claim Notice subject to the limitations on indemnification set forth in this Article IX and will have no further right to contest the validity of such Claim Notice. If the Indemnitor responds within such thirty (30) days and rejects such claim in whole or in part, the Purchaser Representative on behalf of the Indemnitee will be free to pursue such remedies as may be available under this Agreement (subject to Section 13.4), any Ancillary Documents or applicable Law.

 

9.5 Indemnification Payments. Any indemnification obligation of an Indemnitor under this Article IX will be satisfied promptly, but in any event within five (5) Business Days, after the determination of such obligation in accordance with Section 9.4. Any indemnification claims against the Indemnitors shall be satisfied by offsetting the amount of such indemnification obligations against the Holdback Shares. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, any indemnification payments will be made to Pubco or its successors, by the offset of such Holdback Shares. With respect to the satisfaction of any indemnification obligation, the value of each Holdback Share or any other Pubco Ordinary Shares for purposes of determining the satisfaction of the indemnification obligation shall be the Pubco Share Price on the date that the indemnification claim is finally determined in accordance with this Article IX. Without limiting any of the foregoing or any other rights of the Indemnitees under this Agreement or any Ancillary Document or at law or equity, in the event that an Indemnitor fails or refuses to promptly indemnify an Indemnitee as provided herein or otherwise fails or refuses to make any payments required under any Ancillary Document, in either case, where it is established that such Indemnitor is obligated to provide such indemnification or to make such payment, the applicable Indemnitee shall, in its sole discretion, be entitled to claim a portion of the Pubco Ordinary Shares then owned by such Indemnitor up to an amount equal in value (based on the then current Pubco Share Price) to the amount owed by such Indemnitor. In the event that such Indemnitor fails to promptly transfer any such Pubco Ordinary Shares pursuant to this Section 9.5, the Purchaser Representative on behalf of Pubco shall be and hereby is authorized as the attorney-in-fact for such Indemnitor to transfer such Pubco Ordinary Shares to the proper recipient thereof as required by this Section 9.5 and may transfer such Pubco Ordinary Shares and cancel the stock certificates for such Pubco Ordinary Shares on the books and records of Pubco and issue new stock certificates to such transferee and may instruct its agents and any exchanges on which Pubco Ordinary Shares are listed or traded to do the same.

 

9.6 Exclusive Remedy. From and after the Closing, except with respect to Fraud Claims relating to the Company or any Seller or claims seeking injunctions, specific performance or other equitable relief (including pursuant to Section 13.7), or claims under the terms of the Ancillary Documents, indemnification pursuant to this Article IX shall be the sole and exclusive remedy for the Parties with respect to matters arising under this Agreement of any kind or nature, including for any misrepresentation or breach of any warranty, covenant, or other provision contained in this Agreement or in any certificate or instrument delivered pursuant to this Agreement or otherwise relating to the subject matter of this Agreement, including the negotiation and discussion thereof.

Article XII
WAIVERS AND RELEASES

 

12.1 Waiver of Claims Against Trust. Reference is made to the IPO Prospectus. The Company and each Seller hereby acknowledges that it has read the IPO Prospectus and understands that Purchaser has established the Trust Account containing the proceeds of the IPO and the overallotment shares acquired by Purchaser’s underwriters (including interest accrued from time to time thereon) for the benefit of Purchaser’s public stockholders (including overallotment shares acquired by Purchaser’s underwriters) (including any successors after the Merger, the “Public Stockholders”) and that, except as otherwise described in the IPO Prospectus, Purchaser may disburse monies from the Trust Account only: (a) to the Public Stockholders in the event they elect to redeem their shares of Purchaser Class A Common Stock (or Pubco Ordinary Shares upon the Merger) in connection with the consummation of its initial business combination (as such term is used in the IPO Prospectus) (“Business Combination”) or in connection with an amendment to Purchaser’s Organizational documents to extend Purchaser’s deadline to consummate a Business Combination, (b) to the Public Stockholders if the Purchaser fails to consummate a Business Combination within twelve (12) months (or up to twenty (21) months if extended pursuant to the terms of the Purchaser Charter) after the closing of the IPO, (c) with respect to any interest earned on the amounts held in the Trust Account, as necessary to pay any franchise or income taxes or for any liquidation expenses, and (d) to Purchaser after or concurrently with the consummation of a Business Combination. For and in consideration of Purchaser entering into this Agreement and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the Company and each Seller hereby agrees on behalf of itself and its Affiliates that, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, none of the Company, any Seller nor any of their respective Affiliates do now or shall at any time hereafter have any right, title, interest or claim of any kind in or to any monies in the Trust Account or distributions therefrom, or make any claim against the Trust Account (including any distributions therefrom), regardless of whether such claim arises as a result of, in connection with or relating in any way to, this Agreement or any proposed or actual business relationship between Purchaser, Pubco or any of their respective Representatives, on the one hand, and the Company, any Seller or their respective Representatives, on the other hand, or any other matter, and regardless of whether such claim arises based on contract, tort, equity or any other theory of legal liability (any and all such claims are collectively referred to hereafter as the “Released Claims”). The Company and each Seller on behalf of itself and its Affiliates hereby irrevocably waives any Released Claims that the Company, any Seller or any of their respective Affiliates may have against the Trust Account (including any distributions therefrom) now or in the future as a result of, or arising out of, any negotiations, contracts or agreements with Purchaser, Pubco or their respective Representatives and will not seek recourse against the Trust Account (including any distributions therefrom) for any reason whatsoever (including for an alleged breach of this Agreement or any other agreement with Purchaser, Pubco or their respective Affiliates). The Company and each Seller each agrees and acknowledges that such irrevocable waiver is material to this Agreement and specifically relied upon by Purchaser, Pubco and their respective Affiliates to induce Purchaser, Pubco and Merger Sub to enter in this Agreement, and the Company and each Seller further intends and understands such waiver to be valid, binding and enforceable against the Company, each Seller and each of their respective Affiliates under applicable Law. To the extent the Company, any Seller or any of their respective Affiliates commences any action or proceeding based upon, in connection with, relating to or arising out of any matter relating to Purchaser, Pubco or their respective Representatives, which proceeding seeks, in whole or in part, monetary relief against Purchaser, Pubco or their respective Representatives, the Company and each Seller hereby acknowledges and agrees that their and their Affiliates’ sole remedy shall be against funds held outside of the Trust Account and that such claim shall not permit any the Company, any Seller or any of their respective Affiliates (or any Person claiming on any of their behalves or in lieu of them) to have any claim against the Trust Account (including any distributions therefrom) or any amounts contained therein. In the event that the Company, any Seller or any of their respective Affiliates commences Action based upon, in connection with, relating to or arising out of any matter relating to Purchaser, Pubco or their respective Representatives which proceeding seeks, in whole or in part, relief against the Trust Account (including any distributions therefrom) or the Public Stockholders, whether in the form of money damages or injunctive relief, Purchaser, Pubco and their respective Representatives, as applicable, shall be entitled to recover from the Company, the Sellers and their respective Affiliates, as applicable, the associated legal fees and costs in connection with any such Action, in the event Purchaser, Pubco or their respective Representatives, as applicable, prevails in such Action. This Section 12.1 shall survive termination of this Agreement for any reason.

 

12.2 Release and Covenant Not to Sue. Effective as of the Closing, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Law, each Seller, on behalf of itself and its Affiliates that owns any share or other equity interest in or of such Seller (the “Releasing Persons”), hereby releases and discharges the Target Companies from and against any and all Actions, obligations, agreements, debts and Liabilities whatsoever, whether known or unknown, both at law and in equity, which such Releasing Person now has, has ever had or may hereafter have against the Target Companies arising on or prior to the Closing Date or on account of or arising out of any matter occurring on or prior to the Closing Date, including any rights to indemnification or reimbursement from a Target Company, whether pursuant to its Organizational Documents, Contract or otherwise, and whether or not relating to claims pending on, or asserted after, the Closing Date. From and after the Closing, each Releasing Person hereby irrevocably covenants to refrain from, directly or indirectly, asserting any Action, or commencing or causing to be commenced, any Action of any kind against the Target Companies or their respective Affiliates, based upon any matter purported to be released hereby. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the releases and restrictions set forth herein shall not apply to any claims a Releasing Person may have against any party pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Agreement or any Ancillary Document or any of the other matters set forth on Schedule 12.2.

13.2 Binding Effect; Assignment. This Agreement and all of the provisions hereof shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns. This Agreement shall not be assigned by operation of Law or otherwise without the prior written consent of Purchaser, Pubco, the Company and the Purchaser Representative, and any assignment without such consent shall be null and void; provided that no such assignment shall relieve the assigning Party of its obligations hereunder.

 

13.3 Third Parties. Except for the rights of the D&O Indemnified Persons set forth in Section 8.16, which the Parties acknowledge and agree are express third party beneficiaries of this Agreement, nothing contained in this Agreement or in any instrument or document executed by any party in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby shall create any rights in, or be deemed to have been executed for the benefit of, any Person that is not a Party hereto or thereto or a successor or permitted assign of such a Party.

 

13.4 Arbitration. Any and all disputes, controversies and claims (other than applications for a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, permanent injunction or other equitable relief or application for enforcement of a resolution under this Section 13.4) arising out of, related to, or in connection with this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby (a “Dispute”) shall be governed by this Section 13.4. A Party must, in the first instance, provide written notice of any Disputes to the other Parties subject to such Dispute, which notice must provide a reasonably detailed description of the matters subject to the Dispute. The Parties involved in such Dispute shall seek to resolve the Dispute on an amicable basis within ten (10) Business Days of the notice of such Dispute being received by such other Parties subject to such Dispute (the “Resolution Period”); provided, that if any Dispute would reasonably be expected to have become moot or otherwise irrelevant if not decided within sixty (60) days after the occurrence of such Dispute, then there shall be no Resolution Period with respect to such Dispute. Any Dispute that is not resolved during the Resolution Period may immediately be referred to and finally resolved by arbitration pursuant to the then-existing Expedited Procedures (as defined in the AAA Procedures) of the Commercial Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Procedures”) of the AAA. Any Party involved in such Dispute may submit the Dispute to the AAA to commence the proceedings after the Resolution Period. To the extent that the AAA Procedures and this Agreement are in conflict, the terms of this Agreement shall control. The arbitration shall be conducted by one arbitrator nominated by the AAA promptly (but in any event within five (5) Business Days) after the submission of the Dispute to the AAA and reasonably acceptable to each Party subject to the Dispute, which arbitrator shall be a commercial lawyer with substantial experience arbitrating disputes under acquisition agreements. The arbitrator shall accept his or her appointment and begin the arbitration process promptly (but in any event within five (5) Business Days) after his or her nomination and acceptance by the Parties subject to the Dispute. The proceedings shall be streamlined and efficient. The arbitrator shall decide the Dispute in accordance with the substantive law of the state of New York. Time is of the essence. Each Party subject to the Dispute shall submit a proposal for resolution of the Dispute to the arbitrator within twenty (20) days after confirmation of the appointment of the arbitrator. The arbitrator shall have the power to order any Party to do, or to refrain from doing, anything consistent with this Agreement, the Ancillary Documents and applicable Law, including to perform its contractual obligation(s); provided, that the arbitrator shall be limited to ordering pursuant to the foregoing power (and, for the avoidance of doubt, shall order) the relevant Party (or Parties, as applicable) to comply with only one or the other of the proposals. The arbitrator’s award shall be in writing and shall include a reasonable explanation of the arbitrator’s reason(s) for selecting one or the other proposal. The seat of arbitration shall be in New York County, State of New York. The language of the arbitration shall be English.

13.5 Governing Law; Jurisdiction. This Agreement shall be governed by, construed and enforced in accordance with the Laws of the State of New York without regard to the conflict of laws principles thereof. Subject to Section 13.4, all Actions arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be heard and determined exclusively in any state or federal court located in New York, New York (or in any appellate court thereof) (the “Specified Courts”). Subject to Section 13.4, each Party hereto hereby (a) submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of any Specified Court for the purpose of any Action arising out of or relating to this Agreement brought by any Party hereto and (b) irrevocably waives, and agrees 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 hereby may not be enforced in or by any Specified Court. Each Party agrees that a final judgment in any Action shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by Law. Each Party irrevocably consents to the service of the summons and complaint and any other process in any other Action relating to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, on behalf of itself, or its property, by personal delivery of copies of such process to such Party at the applicable address set forth in Section 13.1. Nothing in this Section 13.5 shall affect the right of any Party to serve legal process in any other manner permitted by Law.

 

13.6 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 ACTION DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF, UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY. EACH PARTY HERETO (A) CERTIFIES THAT NO REPRESENTATIVE OF ANY OTHER PARTY HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PARTY WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF ANY ACTION, SEEK TO ENFORCE THAT FOREGOING WAIVER AND (B) ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT AND THE OTHER PARTIES HERETO HAVE BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION 13.6.

 

13.7 Specific Performance. Each Party acknowledges that the rights of each Party to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby are unique, recognizes and affirms that in the event of a breach of this Agreement by any Party, money damages may be inadequate and the non-breaching Parties may have not adequate remedy at law, and agree that irreparable damage would occur in the event that any of the provisions of this Agreement were not performed by an applicable Party in accordance with their specific terms or were otherwise breached. Accordingly, each of Purchaser, Pubco, Merger Sub, the Company and the Purchaser Representative shall be entitled to seek an injunction or restraining order to prevent breaches of this Agreement and to seek to enforce specifically the terms and provisions hereof, without the requirement to post any bond or other security or to prove that money damages would be inadequate, this being in addition to any other right or remedy to which such Party may be entitled under this Agreement, at law or in equity.

 

68

 

 

13.8 Severability. In case any provision in this Agreement shall be held invalid, illegal or unenforceable in a jurisdiction, such provision shall be modified or deleted, as to the jurisdiction involved, only to the extent necessary to render the same valid, legal and enforceable, and the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions hereof shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby nor shall the validity, legality or enforceability of such provision be affected thereby in any other jurisdiction. Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced, the Parties will substitute for any invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision a suitable and equitable provision that carries out, so far as may be valid, legal and enforceable, the intent and purpose of such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision.

 

13.9 Amendment. This Agreement may be amended, supplemented or modified only by execution of a written instrument signed by Purchaser, Pubco, the Company and the Purchaser Representative; provided that (i) any amendment that imposes additional material liabilities or obligations on the Sellers requires the prior written consent of Sellers holding in the aggregate a Pro Rata Share of at least 50.1%, and (ii) no amendment shall affect a Seller in a manner materially and adversely disproportionate to the other Sellers without the prior written consent of such Seller.

 

13.10 Waiver. Each of Purchaser, Pubco, the Company and, after the Closing, the Purchaser Representative, on behalf of itself and its Affiliates (and the Company on behalf of the Sellers), may in its sole discretion (i) extend the time for the performance of any obligation or other act of any other Party here that is not such Party’s Affiliate (or, with respect to the Company, not a Seller), (ii) waive any inaccuracy in the representations and warranties by any other Party here that is not such Party’s Affiliate (or, with respect to the Company, not a Seller) contained herein or in any document delivered pursuant hereto and (iii) waive compliance by any other Party here that is not such Party’s Affiliate (or, with respect to the Company, not a Seller) with any covenant or condition contained herein. Any such extension or waiver shall be valid only if set forth in an instrument in writing signed by the Party or Parties to be bound thereby (including by the Purchaser Representative in lieu of such Party to the extent provided in this Agreement, and provided that the Company may execute such instrument on behalf of the Sellers). Notwithstanding the foregoing, no failure or delay by a Party in exercising any right hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof nor shall any single or partial exercise thereof preclude any other or further exercise of any other right hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any waiver of any provision of this Agreement after the Closing shall also require the prior written consent of the Purchaser Representative.

 

13.11 Entire Agreement. This Agreement and the documents or instruments referred to herein, including any exhibits, annexes and schedules attached hereto, which exhibits, annexes and schedules are incorporated herein by reference, together with the Ancillary Documents, embody the entire agreement and understanding of the Parties hereto in respect of the subject matter contained herein. There are no restrictions, promises, representations, warranties, covenants or undertakings, other than those expressly set forth or referred to herein or the documents or instruments referred to herein, which collectively supersede all prior agreements and the understandings among the Parties with respect to the subject matter contained herein.
