(b)    Notwithstanding anything contained in this Section 2 to the contrary, the Company shall not be obligated to effect any registration under the Securities Act except in accordance with the following provisions:
(i)    The Company shall not be obligated to file and cause to become effective more than two (2) registration statements initiated pursuant to Section 2(a) above on Form S-1 promulgated under the Securities Act (or any successor form thereto).
(ii)    The Company may delay the filing or effectiveness of any registration statement for a period of up to 60 days after the date of a request for registration pursuant to Section 2(a) if at the time of such request: (X) the Company is engaged, or has fixed plans to engage within 30 days of the time of such request, in a firm commitment underwritten public offering of Primary Shares in which the holders of Registrable Shares have been or will be permitted to include all the Registrable Shares so requested to be registered pursuant to Section 3 or (Y) the Board reasonably determines that such registration and offering would interfere with any material transaction involving the Company; provided, however, that the Company shall only be entitled to invoke its rights under this Section 2(b)(ii) one time per consecutive 12 month period the duration of this Agreement.
(iii)    With respect to any registration pursuant to this Section 2, the Company shall give notice of such registration, in accordance with the provisions of Section 3 hereunder, to the Investors who do not request registration hereunder and the Company may include in such registration any Registrable Shares, Primary Shares or Other Shares; provided, however, that if the managing underwriter advises the Company that the inclusion of all Registrable Shares, Primary Shares, and/or Other Shares proposed to be included in such registration would interfere with the successful marketing (including pricing) of the Registrable Shares proposed to be included in such registration, then the number of Registrable Shares, Primary Shares, and/or Other Shares proposed to be included in such registration shall be included in the following order:
(A)    first, the Registrable Shares (or, if necessary, such Registrable Shares pro rata among the holders thereof based upon the number of Registrable Shares requested to be registered by each such holder);
(B)    second, the Primary Shares; and

(v)    At any time before the registration statement covering such Registrable Shares becomes effective, the Requisite Investors may request the Company to withdraw or not to file the registration statement.

(A)    first, the Primary Shares;
(B)    second, the Registrable Shares (pro rata among the holders thereof based on the number of Registrable Shares requested to be registered by such holder); and
(C)    third, the Other Shares.
Section 4.    Registrations on Form S-3.
Anything contained in Section 2 to the contrary notwithstanding, at such time as the Company shall have qualified for the use of Form S-3 promulgated under the Securities Act or any successor form thereto, the holders of Registrable Shares shall have the right to request up to one (1) registration per calendar year during the duration of this Agreement of Registrable Shares on Form S-3 (which may, at such holders’ request, be shelf registrations pursuant to Rule 415 promulgated under the Securities Act) or its successor form, which request or requests shall (i) specify the number of Registrable Shares intended to be sold or disposed of and the holders thereof and (ii) relate to Registrable Shares having an aggregate offering price of at least one million dollars ($1,000,000). A requested registration on Form S-3 (or its successor form) in compliance with this Section 4 shall not count as a registration statement initiated pursuant to Section 2(a) for purposes of the registration request limitation set forth under Section 2(a), but shall otherwise be treated as a registration initiated pursuant to Section 2(b) and shall be subject to the provisions thereof (including Section 2(b)(iii)).

(viii)    make available upon reasonable notice and during normal business hours, for inspection by any underwriter participating in any disposition pursuant to such registration statement and any attorney, accountant or other agent retained by the underwriter (collectively, the “Inspectors”), all pertinent financial and other records, pertinent documents, and properties of the Company (collectively, the “Records”), as shall be reasonably necessary to enable them to exercise their due diligence responsibility, and cause the Company’s officers, directors, managers, and employees to supply all information (together with the Records, the “Information”) reasonably requested by any such Inspector in connection with such registration statement.

8



with such registration or qualification under such state securities or blue sky laws; and shall promptly reimburse such Persons for any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by any of them in connection with investigating or defending any such loss, claim, damage, liability or action; provided, however, that the Company shall not be liable in any such case to the extent that any such loss, claim, damage, liability or action (including any legal or other expenses incurred) arises out of or is based upon an untrue statement or allegedly untrue statement or omission or alleged omission made in said registration statement, preliminary prospectus, Issuer Free Writing Prospectus, final prospectus, amendment, supplement or document incident to registration or qualification of any Registrable Shares in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished to the Company by the holders of Registrable Shares specifically for use in the preparation thereof.
(b)    To the extent permitted by law, in connection with any registration of Registrable Shares under the Securities Act pursuant to this Agreement, each holder of Registrable Shares shall severally (based on the percentage of the securities included in such registration that were owned by such holder) and not jointly and severally indemnify and hold harmless (in the same manner and to the same extent as set forth in Section 7(a)) the Company, each director or manager of the Company, each officer of the Company who shall sign such registration statement, each underwriter, broker or other person acting on behalf of the holders of Registrable Shares and each person who controls any of the foregoing persons within the meaning of the Securities Act with respect to any statement or omission from such registration statement, any preliminary prospectus, Issuer Free Writing Prospectus or final prospectus contained therein or otherwise filed with the Commission, any amendment or supplement thereto or any document incident to registration or qualification of any Registrable Shares, if such statement or omission was made in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished to the Company or such underwriter by such holder of Registrable Shares specifically for use in connection with the preparation of such registration statement, preliminary prospectus, Issuer Free Writing Prospectus, final prospectus, amendment, supplement or document; provided, however, that the maximum amount of liability in respect of such indemnification shall be limited, in the case of each holder of Registrable Shares, to an amount equal to the net proceeds actually received by such holder from the sale of Registrable Shares effected pursuant to such registration.
(c)    Promptly after receipt by an indemnified party of notice of the commencement of any action involving a claim referred to in this Section 7, such indemnified party will, if a claim in respect thereof is made against an indemnifying party, give written notice to the latter of the commencement of such action. The failure of any indemnified party to notify an indemnifying party of any such action shall not (unless such failure shall have a material adverse effect on the indemnifying party) relieve the indemnifying party from any liability in respect of such action that it may have to such indemnified party hereunder. In case any such action is brought against an indemnified party, the indemnifying party will be entitled to participate in and to assume the defense thereof, jointly with any other indemnifying party similarly notified to the extent that it may wish, with counsel reasonably satisfactory to such indemnified party, and after notice from the indemnifying party to such indemnified party of its election so to assume the defense thereof, the indemnifying party shall not be responsible for any legal or other expenses subsequently incurred by the indemnified party in connection with the defense thereof; provided, however, that if any indemnified party shall have reasonably concluded that there may be one or more legal or equitable defenses available to such indemnified party which are additional to or conflict with those available to the indemnifying party, or that such claim or litigation involves or could have an effect upon matters beyond the scope of the indemnity agreement provided hereunder, the indemnifying party shall not have the right to assume the defense of such action on behalf of such indemnified party (but shall have the right to participate therein with counsel of its choice) and such indemnifying party shall reimburse such indemnified party and any Person controlling such indemnified party for that portion of the fees and expenses of any counsel retained by the indemnified party which is reasonably related to the matters covered by the indemnity agreement provided hereunder. No indemnifying party shall be liable for any settlement of any proceeding affected without its prior written consent. If the indemnifying party is not entitled to, or elects not to, assume the defense of a claim, it will not be obligated to pay the fees and expenses of more than one counsel with respect to such claim.
(d)    If the indemnification provided for hereunder is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unavailable to an indemnified party with respect to any loss, claim, damage, liability or action referred to herein, then the indemnifying party, in lieu of indemnifying such indemnified party hereunder, shall contribute to the amounts paid or payable by such indemnified party as a result of such loss, claim, damage, liability or action in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the indemnifying party on the one hand and of the indemnified party on

9



the other in connection with the statements or omissions which resulted in such loss, claim, damage, liability or action as well as any other relevant equitable considerations. The relative fault of the indemnifying party and of the indemnified party shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether the untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or the omission or alleged omission to state a material fact relates to information supplied by the indemnifying party or by the indemnified party and the parties’ relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such statement or omission. The parties agree that it would not be just and equitable if contribution pursuant hereto were determined by pro rata allocation or by any other method or allocation which does not take account of the equitable considerations referred to herein. No indemnifying party shall be required to contribute pursuant to this Section 7(d) if there has been a settlement of any proceeding effected without its prior written consent. No person guilty or liable of fraudulent misrepresentation shall be entitled to contribution from any person.
Section 8.    Underwriting Agreement.
(a)    Notwithstanding any provisions of this Agreement, to the extent that in connection with a proposed sale of Registrable Shares which have been registered with the Commission pursuant to this Agreement, the holders of Registrable Shares shall enter into an underwriting agreement or similar agreement that contains customary provisions covering one or more issues addressed in such Sections of this Agreement, the provisions contained in such Sections of this Agreement addressing such issue or issues shall be of no force or effect with respect to such registration, but this provision shall not apply to the Company if the Company is not a party to the underwriting agreement or similar agreement.
(b)    In connection with any proposed sale through an underwritten offering of Registrable Shares which have been registered with the Commission pursuant to this Agreement through an underwritten offering, the Company shall negotiate in good faith and enter into a reasonable and customary underwriting agreement with the underwriters thereof on terms reasonably satisfactory to the Requisite Investors. The Company shall be entitled to receive customary indemnities from lead underwriters, selling brokers, dealer managers and similar security industry professionals participating in the distribution, to the same extent as provided above with respect to the information so furnished in writing by such Persons specifically for inclusion in any prospectus or registration statement.
Section 9.    Information by Holder.
The Investors shall furnish to the Company such written information regarding the Investors and the distribution proposed by any Investors as the Company may reasonably request in writing and as shall be reasonably required in connection with any registration referred to in this Agreement.
Section 10.    Delay of Registration.
