Each Company Employee Benefit Plan has been established, operated, maintained, funded and administered in accordance in all material respects with its respective terms and in compliance in all material respects with all applicable Laws, including ERISA and the Code. Except as would not reasonably be expected to result in a material Liability to any of the Group Companies, there have been no “prohibited transactions” within the meaning of Section 4975 of the Code or Section 406 or 407 of ERISA that are not otherwise exempt under Section 408 of ERISA and no breaches of fiduciary duty (as determined under ERISA) with respect to any Company Employee Benefit Plan. There is no Proceeding or claim (other than routine and uncontested claims for benefits) pending or, to the Knowledge of the Company, threatened, with respect to any Company Employee Benefit Plan or against the assets of any Company Employee Benefit Plan.

(d)Except as set forth on Section 4.15(d), neither the execution or delivery of this Agreement nor the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, alone or together with any other event (whether contingent or otherwise) would, directly or indirectly, (i) result in any payment (whether in cash, property or the vesting of property) or benefit becoming due or payable, or required to be provided, to any current or former officer, employee, director or individual independent contractor of the Group Companies under a Company Employee Benefit Plan or otherwise, (ii) increase the amount or value of any benefit or compensation otherwise payable or required to be provided to any current or former officer, employee, director or individual independent contractor of the Group Companies under a Company Employee Benefit Plan or otherwise, (iii) result in the acceleration of the time of payment, vesting or funding, or forfeiture, of any such benefit or compensation under a Company Employee Benefit Plan or otherwise, (iv) result in the forgiveness in whole or in part of any outstanding loans made by the Group Companies to any current or former officer, employee, director or individual independent contractor of the Group Companies, (v) result in an obligation to fund or otherwise set aside assets to secure to any extent any of the obligations under any Company Employee Benefit Plan, or (vi) limit or restrict the Group Companies’ or JIH’s ability to merge, amend or terminate any Company Employee Benefit Plan.

No Person has any right against the Group Companies to be grossed up for, reimbursed or otherwise indemnified for any Tax or related interest or penalties incurred by such Person, including under Sections 409A or 4999 of the Code or otherwise.
(g)Neither the execution or delivery of this Agreement nor the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby could, either alone or in conjunction with any other event, result in the payment or provision of any amount or benefit that could, individually or in combination with any other payment, constitute a “parachute payment” (as defined in Section 280G(b)(2) of the Code).
Section 1.16Insurance. Schedule 4.16 contains a true, correct and complete list of all material insurance policies carried by or for the benefit of the Group Companies (the “Insurance Policies”) and the scope of coverage of each such Insurance Policy.

All premiums due under such policies have been paid in accordance with the terms of such Insurance Policy. No Group Company is in material breach or material default under, nor has it taken any action or failed to take any action which, with notice or the lapse of time, or both, would constitute a material breach or material default under, or permit a material increase in premium, cancellation, material reduction in coverage, material denial or non-renewal with respect to any Insurance Policy.

All of such Permits are valid and in full force and effect and none of such Permits will be terminated as a result of, or in connection with, the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby. No Group Company is in material default under any such Permit and no condition exists that, with the giving of notice or lapse of time or both, would constitute a material default under such Permit, and no Proceeding is pending or, to the Knowledge of the Company, threatened, to suspend, revoke, withdraw, modify or limit any such Permit in a manner that has had or would reasonably be expected to have a material impact on the ability of the applicable Group Company to use such Permit or conduct its business.

Article X
TAX MATTERS
Section 1.1Certain Tax Matters.
(a)Preparation of Tax Returns for the Group Company.
(i)Parent shall prepare, or cause to be prepared, at the cost and expense of Parent all Tax Returns of each Group Company for any taxable period ending on or before the Closing Date and any Straddle Period, in each case, that are due after the Closing Date (taking into account applicable extensions). Each such Tax Return that is a Flow-Through Tax Return shall be prepared in a manner consistent with the Group Companies’ past practices, except as otherwise required by applicable Law, and shall claim the Transaction Tax Deductions in the Pre-Closing Tax Period to the maximum extent permitted under applicable Law. Each such Tax Return that is a Flow-Through Tax Return shall be prepared using the historical income Tax Return preparers of the applicable Group Company and shall be submitted to the Equityholder Representative for review, comment and approval no later than thirty (30) days prior to the due date for filing such Tax Return (taking into account applicable extensions). Parent shall incorporate, or cause to be incorporated, all reasonable comments received from the Equityholder Representative no later than ten (10) days prior to the due date for filing any such Tax Return (taking into account applicable extensions), and the Parent will cause such Tax Returns to be timely filed and will provide a copy of such filed Tax Returns to the Equityholder Representative.
(ii)Notwithstanding the foregoing, each Flow-Through Tax Return described in this Section 10.1(a) for a taxable period that includes the Closing Date (i) for which the “interim closing method” under Section 706 of the Code (or any similar provision of state, local or non-U.S. Law) is available shall be prepared in accordance with such method and (ii) for which an election under Section 754 of the Code (or any similar provision of state, local or non-U.S. Law) may be made shall make such election.
(b)Straddle Period. For purposes of this Agreement, in the case of any Straddle Period, the amount of any Taxes based on or measured by income, receipts, or payroll of the Group Companies or Blockers for the Pre-Closing Tax Period shall be determined based on an “interim closing of the books” as of the close of business on the Closing Date (and for such purpose, the taxable period of any “controlled foreign corporation” as defined in Section 957 of the Code, partnership or other pass-through entity in which any Group Company or Blocker holds a beneficial interest shall be deemed to terminate at such time) and the amount of any other Taxes of the Group Companies or Blockers for any Straddle Period that relates to the Pre-Closing Tax Period shall be deemed to be the amount of such Tax for the entire taxable period multiplied by a fraction the numerator of which is the number of days in the taxable period ending on and including the Closing Date and the denominator of which is the number of days in such Straddle Period.
(c)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Parent shall be entitled, in its sole discretion, to cause any Group Company to make any “push out” of imputed underpayments under Section 6226 of the Code (or any similar provisions under state or local Law) with respect to a taxable period (or portion thereof) ending on or prior to the Closing Date, unless (i) the Company Equityholders (and their direct or indirect owners, as applicable) amend their Tax Returns (including pursuant to Section 6225(c)(2) of the Code (or any similar provisions under state or local Law)) or utilize the alternative “pull-in” procedure in accordance with Section 6225(c)(2)(B) of the Code (or any similar provisions under state or local Law), and (ii) any such imputed underpayment attributable to the Company Equityholders (or their direct or indirect owners, as applicable) is reduced to zero. Each of the Parties shall cooperate in good faith in connection with Parent’s decision to cause any Group Company to make any such “push out” of imputed underpayments.
(d)Cooperation. Each Party shall reasonably cooperate (and cause its Affiliates to reasonably cooperate), as and to the extent reasonably requested by each other Party, in connection with the
65


preparation and filing of Tax Returns pursuant to Section 10.1(a) and any examination or other Proceeding with respect to Taxes or Tax Returns of any Group Company or Blocker. Such cooperation shall include the provision of records and information that are reasonably relevant to any such audit or other Proceeding and making employees available on a mutually convenient basis to provide additional information and explanation of any material provided hereunder. Following the Closing, Parent, the Group Companies, the Blockers, the Company Equityholders and the Blocker Owners shall (and the Company Equityholders and Blocker Owners shall cause their respective Affiliates to) retain all books and records with respect to Tax matters pertinent to JIH, the Group Companies or Blockers relating to any taxable period beginning before the Closing Date until the expiration of the statute of limitations (and, to the extent notified by Parent or the Equityholders’ Representative, any extensions thereof) with respect to the respective taxable periods, and to abide by all record retention agreements entered into with any Taxing Authority. Each Party shall furnish the other Parties with copies of all relevant correspondence received from any Taxing Authority in connection with any Tax audit or other Proceeding or information request with respect to any Taxes of the Group Companies. Parent, the Company Equityholders and Blocker Owners shall (and shall cause their respective Affiliates to) provide any information reasonably requested to allow Holdco, the Parent or any Group Company or Blocker to comply with any information reporting or withholding requirements contained in the Code or other applicable Laws or to compute the amount of payroll or other employment Taxes due with respect to any payment made in connection with this Agreement.
(e)Transfer Taxes. All Transfer Taxes shall be borne by Parent. Parent shall cause the Group Company and Blockers, as applicable, to prepare and file, or cause to be prepared and filed, all necessary Tax Returns and other documentation with respect to all Transfer Taxes, and, if required by applicable Law, the Company Equityholders, the Blocker Owners, the Company, the Blockers and Parent will, and will cause their respective Affiliates to, reasonably cooperate and join in the execution of any such Tax Returns and other documentation. The Parties shall reasonably cooperate to establish any available exemption from (or reduction in) any Transfer Tax.
(f)The Parties acknowledge and agree that for U.S. federal and, as applicable, state and local Tax purposes, they intend that (i) the JIH Merger, the Contribution, and the PIPE Investment, taken together with the integrated plan described in clause (ii), be treated as part of an integrated transaction that qualifies as a contribution pursuant to Section 351 of the Code , (ii) each Blocker Merger and the corresponding Parent Merger, taken together, constitute an integrated plan described in Rev. Rul. 2001-46, 2001-2 C.B. 321, that qualifies as a “reorganization” within the meaning of Section 368(a) of the Code, (iii) the JIH Merger qualify as a “reorganization” within the meaning of Section 368(a) of the Code (clauses (i) through (iii), the “Intended Tax Treatment”), and (iv) this Agreement be, and hereby adopt this Agreement as, a “plan of reorganization” within the meaning of Section 368 of the Code with respect to the reorganizations described in clauses (ii) and (iii).
(g)Purchase Price Allocation. Within one hundred twenty (120) days following the Closing Date, (i) the Equityholder Representative will prepare, and deliver to the JIH, an allocation statement allocating the Company Cash Consideration and any other amounts treated as consideration for U.S. federal income Tax purposes with respect to the Company Units among the assets of the Company and the Company Subsidiaries that are classified as entities that are disregarded as separate from the Company for U.S. federal income Tax purposes, in each case, in accordance with Section 1060 of the Code (and any other applicable section of the Code), the Treasury Regulations thereunder (and any similar provision of state or local Law) (the “Allocation”). The Allocation shall contain sufficient detail to permit the Parties to make the computations and adjustments required under Sections 743(b), 751 and 755 of the Code and the Treasury Regulations thereunder. Within twenty (30) days after the receipt of the draft Allocation, JIH will propose any changes or will indicate its concurrence therewith. If JIH and the Equityholder Representative do not initially agree with respect to the draft Allocation or any proposed changes, then JIH and the Equityholder Representative shall attempt in good faith to reach agreement on the Allocation, as applicable, in a manner consistent with applicable income Tax Law. If JIH and the Equityholder Representative cannot reach agreement on the Allocation within thirty (30) days after receipt of JIH’s proposed changes, then JIH and the Equityholder Representative shall submit the dispute to the Valuation Firm or, if unavailable, another nationally recognized accounting firm mutually acceptable to JIH and the Equityholder Representative (the “Tax Accounting Firm”) for resolution, acting as an accounting expert (and not as an arbitrator). For this purpose, (i) the Tax Accounting Firm may not assign a value to any disputed item greater than the greatest value for such disputed item claimed by any party or less than the lowest value for such disputed item claimed by any party and (ii) all fees and expenses relating to the work, if any, to be performed by the Tax Accounting Firm will be allocated between JIH, on the one hand, and the Equityholder Representative (on behalf of the Company Equityholders), on the other hand, in the same proportion that the aggregate amount of the disputed items so submitted to the Tax Accounting Firm that is unsuccessfully disputed by each such Party (as finally determined by the Tax Accounting Firm) bears to the total amount of such disputed items so submitted. The Allocation, as agreed to by JIH and the Equityholder
66


Representative or as finally determined by the Tax Accounting Firm, as the case may be, shall be binding on all Parties (the “Final Allocation”).
(h)The Parties shall, and shall cause each of their respective applicable Affiliates to: (1) prepare and file all Tax Returns consistent with the Final Allocation and Intended Tax Treatment (collectively, the “Tax Positions”); (2) take no position in any communication (whether written or unwritten) with any Taxing Authority or any other action inconsistent with the Tax Positions; (3) promptly inform each other of any challenge by any Taxing Authority to any portion of the Tax Positions; and (4) consult with and keep one another informed with respect to the status of, and any discussion, proposal or submission with respect to, any such challenge to any portion of the Tax Positions.
(i)Tax Contests. In the event of any proposed audit, adjustment, assessment, examination, claim or other controversy or Proceeding reasonably expected to impact any Flow-Through Tax Return of any Group Company with respect to any Pre-Closing Tax Period (a “Tax Contest”), JIH will, or will cause the applicable Group Company to, within 5 days of becoming aware of such Tax Contest, notify the Equityholder Representative of such Tax Contest. JIH or the applicable Group Company shall include in such notice any written notice or other documents received from any Taxing Authority with respect to such Tax Contest. JIH will control the contest or resolution of any such Tax Contest; provided, JIH will obtain the prior consent of the Equityholder Representative (which consent will not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed) before entering into any settlement of a claim or ceasing to defend such claim; provided, further, the Equityholder Representative will be entitled to participate in the defense of such claim (to the extent permitted by the applicable Taxing Authority) and to employ counsel of its choice for such purpose.
(j)After the Closing, except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, Parent and its Affiliates (including the Group Companies) will not, without the consent of the Equityholder Representative (which consent will not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), (a) file, amend or otherwise modify any Flow-Through Tax Return relating to any Pre-Closing Tax Period of any Group Company, (b) extend or waive, or cause or request to be extended or waived, any statute of limitations or other period for the assessment of any Taxes with respect to any Flow-Through Tax Return for any Pre-Closing Tax Period of any Group Company, (c) voluntarily approach any Taxing Authority regarding any Flow-Through Tax Return of any Group Company relating to any Pre-Closing Tax Period, (d) make or change any election or accounting method or practice with respect to any Flow-Through Tax Return for any Pre-Closing Tax Period, or (e) take any other action (or inaction) relating to any Flow-Through Tax Return for any Pre-Closing Tax Period, in each case, to the extent that Holdco, Management Holdings, JBI, Koos Trust or the Blocker Owners, or their direct or indirect owners, could have an additional Tax liability for a Pre-Closing Tax Period as a result of such action.
(k)Each Party shall, and shall cause its respective Affiliates, to (i) cooperate in order to facilitate the issuance of any opinions relating to Tax matters to be filed in connection with the Form S-4, and (ii) deliver to Kirkland & Ellis LLP (or other applicable legal counsel to the Parent Parties), in each case, to the extent requested by such counsel, a duly executed certificate dated as of the date requested by such counsel, containing such representations, warranties and covenants as shall be reasonably necessary or appropriate to enable such counsel to render any such opinion.

(d)by the Company, if JIH, Parent or any Merger Sub breaches in any material respect any of its representations or warranties contained herein or breaches or fails to perform in any material respect any of its covenants contained herein, which breach or failure to perform (i) would render a condition precedent to the Company’s and Blocker’s obligations to consummate the transactions set forth in Section 11.1 or Section 11.3 hereof not capable of being satisfied and (ii) after the giving of written notice of such breach or failure to perform to JIH by the Company, cannot be cured or has not been cured by the earlier of (x) the Outside Date and (y) thirty (30) Business Days after receipt of such written notice and the Company has not waived in writing such breach or failure; provided, however, that the right to terminate this Agreement under this Section 12.1(d) shall not be available to the Company if the Company, any Blocker or the Equityholder Representative is then in material breach of any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement contained herein;
(e)by JIH, if the Company or any Blocker breaches in any material respect any of their representations or warranties contained herein or the Company, any Blocker or the Equityholder Representative breaches or fails to perform in any material respect any of its covenants contained herein, which breach or failure to perform (i) would render a condition precedent to Parent’s, JIH’s and any Merger Sub’s obligations to consummate the transactions set forth in Section 11.1 or Section 11.2 hereof not capable of being satisfied, and (ii) after the giving of written notice of such breach or failure to perform to the Equityholder Representative by JIH, cannot be cured or has not been cured by the earlier of (x) the Outside Date and (y) thirty (30) Business Days after the delivery of such written notice (in which case the Outside Date shall automatically be extended until the end of such thirty (30) Business Day period) and Parent has not waived in writing such breach or failure; provided, however, that the right to terminate this Agreement under this Section 12.1(e) shall not be available to JIH if Parent, JIH, or any Merger Sub is then in material breach of any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement contained herein; or

Section 1.3Assignment. This Agreement and all of the provisions hereof shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Parties and their respective successors and assigns; provided that neither this Agreement nor any of the rights, interests or obligations hereunder may be assigned or delegated by any Party (including by operation of Law) without the prior written consent of the other Parties; provided that any Group Company may assign its rights under this Agreement to the Debt Financing Sources as collateral security. Any purported assignment or delegation not permitted under this Section 13.3 shall be null and void.
Section 1.4Severability. Whenever possible, each provision hereof shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable Law, but if any provision hereof or the application of any such provision to any Person or circumstance shall be held to be prohibited by or invalid, illegal or unenforceable under applicable Law in any respect by a court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall be ineffective only to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity, illegality or unenforceability, without invalidating the remainder of such provision or the remaining provisions hereof. Furthermore, in lieu of such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision, there shall be added automatically as a part hereof a legal, valid and enforceable provision as similar in terms to such illegal, invalid, or unenforceable provision as may be possible.
Section 1.5Interpretation. The headings and captions used herein and the table of contents to this Agreement are for reference purposes only and shall not affect in any way the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement. Any capitalized terms used in any Schedule or Exhibit attached hereto and not otherwise defined therein shall have the meanings set forth herein. The use of the word “including” herein shall mean “including without limitation.” The words “hereof,” “herein,” and “hereunder” and words of similar import, when used herein, shall refer to this Agreement as a whole and not to any particular provision hereof. References herein to a specific Section, Subsection, Recital, Schedule or Exhibit shall refer, respectively, to Sections, Subsections, Recitals, Schedules or Exhibits hereof. Terms defined in the singular shall have a comparable meaning when used in the plural, and vice versa. References herein to any gender shall include each other gender. The word “or” shall not be exclusive unless the context clearly requires the selection of one (1) (but not more than one (1)) of a number of items. References to “written” or “in writing” include in electronic form. References herein to any Person shall include such Person’s heirs, executors, personal representatives, administrators, successors and permitted assigns; provided, however, that nothing contained in this Section 13.5 is intended to authorize any assignment or transfer not otherwise permitted by this Agreement. References herein to a Person in a particular capacity or capacities shall exclude such Person in any other capacity. Any reference to “days” shall mean calendar days unless Business Days are specified; provided that if any action is required to be done or taken on a day that is not a Business Day, then such action shall be required to be done or taken not on such day but on the first succeeding Business Day thereafter. References herein to any Contract (including this Agreement) mean such Contract as amended, restated, supplemented or modified from time to time in accordance with the terms thereof; provided that with respect to any Contract listed (or required to be listed) on the Disclosure Schedules, all material amendments thereto (or with respect to customer or supplier Contracts, only those amendments that include a restrictive covenant or place any other material restriction on the ability of any Group Company to operate) (for the avoidance, excluding in either case any purchase orders, work orders or statements of work) must also be listed on the appropriate section of the applicable schedule and disclosed. With respect to the determination of any period of time, the word “from” means “from and including” and the words “to” and “until” each means “to but excluding.” References herein to any Law shall be deemed also to refer to such Law, as amended, and all rules and regulations promulgated thereunder. The word “extent” in the phrase “to the extent” (or similar phrases) shall mean the degree to which a subject or other thing extends, and such phrase shall not mean simply “if.” References to the Group Companies as a whole, any Group Company, or the operations, business or assets of any Group Company, solely for purposes of Article IV as of any date prior to the date a Permitted Acquisition was consummated, will be deemed not to include any Person or business acquired in
72


connection with such Permitted Acquisition or the business, operations, assets or liabilities thereof. An accounting term not otherwise defined herein has the meaning assigned to it in accordance with GAAP. Except where otherwise provided, all amounts herein are stated and shall be paid in United States dollars. The Parties and their respective counsel have reviewed and negotiated this Agreement as the joint agreement and understanding of the Parties, and the language used herein shall be deemed to be the language chosen by the Parties to express their mutual intent, and no rule of strict construction shall be applied against any Person. Any information or materials shall be deemed provided, made available or delivered to Parent if such information or materials have been uploaded to the electronic data room maintained by the Company and its financial advisor on the “Project Jade” online data site hosted by Intralinks at https://services.intralinks.com for purposes of the transactions contemplated hereby (the “Data Room”) or otherwise provided to Parent’s representatives (including counsel) via e-mail, in each case with respect to the representations and warranties contained in Article IV and Article V, at least one (1) Business Day prior to the Effective Date.
Section 1.6Entire Agreement. This Agreement, the Ancillary Agreements and the Confidentiality Agreement (together with the Schedules and Exhibits to this Agreement) contain the entire agreement and understanding among the Parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and thereof and supersede all prior and contemporaneous agreements, understandings and discussions, whether written or oral, relating to such subject matter in any way. The Parties have voluntarily agreed to define their rights and Liabilities with respect to the transactions contemplated hereby exclusively pursuant to the express terms and provisions hereof, and the Parties disclaim that they are owed any duties or are entitled to any remedies not set forth herein. Furthermore, this Agreement embodies the justifiable expectations of sophisticated parties derived from arm’s-length negotiations and no Person has any special relationship with another Person that would justify any expectation beyond that of an ordinary buyer and an ordinary seller in an arm’s-length transaction.
Section 1.7Governing Law; Waiver of Jury Trial; Jurisdiction. The Law of the State of Delaware shall govern (a) all claims or matters related to or arising from this Agreement (including any tort or non-contractual claims) and (b) any questions concerning the construction, interpretation, validity and enforceability hereof, and the performance of the obligations imposed by this Agreement, in each case without giving effect to any choice-of-law or conflict-of-law rules or provisions (whether of the State of Delaware or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the Law of any jurisdiction other than the State of Delaware. EACH PARTY TO THIS AGREEMENT HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ALL RIGHTS TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY PROCEEDING BROUGHT TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN OR AMONG ANY OF THE PARTIES (WHETHER ARISING IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE) ARISING OUT OF, CONNECTED WITH, RELATED OR INCIDENTAL TO THIS AGREEMENT, THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY AND/OR THE RELATIONSHIPS ESTABLISHED AMONG THE PARTIES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT. THE PARTIES HERETO FURTHER WARRANT AND REPRESENT THAT EACH HAS REVIEWED THIS WAIVER WITH ITS LEGAL COUNSEL, AND THAT EACH KNOWINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY WAIVES ITS JURY TRIAL RIGHTS FOLLOWING CONSULTATION WITH LEGAL COUNSEL. Each of the Parties submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of first, the Chancery Court of the State of Delaware or if such court declines jurisdiction, then to the Federal District Court for the District of Delaware, in any Proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement, agrees that all claims in respect of the Proceeding shall be heard and determined in any such court and agrees not to bring any Proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement in any other courts. Nothing in this Section 13.7, however, shall affect the right of any Party to serve legal process in any other manner permitted by Law or at equity. Each Party agrees that a final judgment in any Proceeding so brought shall be conclusive and may be enforced by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by Law or at equity.
Section 1.8Non-Survival. None of the representations, warranties, covenants or agreements set forth herein or in any certificate delivered pursuant to this Agreement including any rights arising out of any breach of such representations, warranties, covenants or agreements, shall survive the Closing (and there shall be no Liability after the Closing in respect thereof), in each case, except for (i) those covenants and agreements that by their terms contemplate performance, in each case, in whole or in part after the Closing, and then only with respect to the period following the Closing (including any breaches occurring after the Closing), which shall survive until thirty (30) days following the date of the expiration, by its terms of the obligation of the applicable Party under such covenant or agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, none of the provisions set forth herein shall be deemed a waiver by any Party of any right or remedy which such Party may have at Law or in equity in the case of Fraud.
Section 1.9Trust Account Waiver. Reference is made to the final prospectus of JIH, filed with the SEC (File No. 333-234264) (the “Prospectus”), and dated as of November 7, 2019. As described in the Prospectus, JIH has established the Trust Account initially in an amount of $345,000,000 for the benefit of JIH’s public stockholders (the “Public Stockholders”) and certain parties (including the underwriters of JIH’s IPO (the “IPO”)) and that JIH may disburse monies from the Trust Account only: (a) to the Public Stockholders in the event they elect to redeem the shares of JIH Class A Common Stock in connection with the consummation of JIH’s initial Business Combination, (b) to the Public Stockholders if JIH fails to consummate a Business Combination within 24 months
73


from the closing of the IPO, (c) any interest earned on the amounts held in the Trust Account necessary to pay for franchise and income taxes, or (d) to JIH after or concurrently with the consummation of a Business Combination. For and in consideration of JIH entering into this Agreement, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, each of the Company, each Blocker and the Equityholder Representative hereby agrees that it does not now and shall not 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, with respect to claims arising out of this Agreement, 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 “Claims”). Each of the Company, each Blocker and the Equityholder Representative hereby irrevocably waives any Claims it may have against the Trust Account (including any distributions therefrom) now or in the future as a result of, or arising out of, this Agreement, and will not seek recourse against the Trust Account (including any distributions therefrom) for Claims arising out of this Agreement. Each of the Company, each Blocker and the Equityholder Representative agrees and acknowledges that such irrevocable waiver is material to this Agreement and specifically relied upon by JIH to induce it to enter in this Agreement, and each of the Company, each Blocker and the Equityholder Representative further intends and understands such waiver to be valid, binding and enforceable under applicable Law. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this Section 13.9 shall serve to limit or prohibit (i) the Company’s, each Blocker’s, any Company Equityholder’s or the Equityholder Representative’s right to pursue a claim against JIH for legal relief against assets held outside the Trust Account or pursuant to Section 13.11 for specific performance or other non-monetary relief, or (ii) any claims that the Company, any Blocker, any Company Equityholder or the Equityholder Representative may have in the future against JIH’s assets or funds that are not held in the Trust Account (including any funds that have been released from the Trust Account (other than the Trust Distributions) and any assets that have been purchased or acquired with any such funds) other than as contemplated by this Agreement.
Section 1.10Counterparts; Electronic Delivery. This Agreement, the Ancillary Agreements and the other agreements, certificates, instruments and documents delivered pursuant to this Agreement may be executed and delivered in one or more counterparts and by e-mail, each of which shall be deemed an original and all of which shall be considered one and the same agreement. No Party shall raise the use of e-mail to deliver a signature or the fact that any signature or agreement or instrument was transmitted or communicated through the use of a fax machine or e-mail as a defense to the formation or enforceability of a Contract and each Party forever waives any such defense.
Section 1.11Specific Performance. Each Party acknowledges that the rights of each Party to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby are unique and recognize and affirm that in the event any of the provisions hereof are not performed in accordance with their specific terms or otherwise are breached, money damages would be inadequate (and therefore the non-breaching Party would have no adequate remedy at Law) and the non-breaching Party would be irreparably damaged. Accordingly, each Party agrees that each other Party shall be entitled to specific performance, an injunction or other equitable relief (without posting of bond or other security or needing to prove irreparable harm) to prevent breaches of the provisions hereof and to enforce specifically this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement to the extent expressly contemplated herein or therein and the terms and provisions hereof in any Proceeding, in addition to any other remedy to which such Person may be entitled. Each Party agrees that it will not oppose the granting of specific performance and other equitable relief on the basis that the other Parties have an adequate remedy at Law or that an award of specific performance is not an appropriate remedy for any reason at Law or equity. The Parties acknowledge and agree that any Party seeking an injunction to prevent breaches of this Agreement and to enforce specifically the terms and provisions hereof in accordance with this Section 13.11 shall not be required to provide any bond or other security in connection with any such injunction.
Section 1.12No Third-Party Beneficiaries. This Agreement is for the sole benefit of the Parties and their permitted assigns and nothing herein expressed or implied shall give or be construed to give any Person, other than the Parties and such permitted assigns, any legal or equitable rights hereunder (other than (x) Non-Party Affiliates, each of whom is an express third-party beneficiary hereunder to the provisions of Section 13.14 and (y) the Indemnified Persons, each of whom is an express third-party beneficiary hereunder to the provisions of Section 8.15).
Section 1.13Schedules and Exhibits. All Schedules and Exhibits attached hereto or referred to herein are (a) each hereby incorporated in and made a part of this Agreement as if set forth in full herein and (b) qualified in their entirety by reference to specific provisions of this Agreement. Any fact or item disclosed in any Section of the Schedules shall be deemed disclosed in each other Section of the applicable Schedule to which such fact or item may apply so long as (x) such other Section is referenced by applicable cross-reference or (y) it is reasonably apparent on the face of such disclosure that such disclosure is applicable to such other Section or portion of the Schedule. The headings contained in the Schedules are for convenience of reference only and shall not be deemed to modify or influence the interpretation of the information contained in the Schedules. The Schedules shall not be deemed to expand in any way the scope or effect of any representations, warranties or covenants described herein. Any fact or item, including the specification of any dollar amount, disclosed in the Schedules shall not by reason
74


only of such inclusion (x) be deemed to be material, to establish any standard of materiality or to define further the meaning of such terms for purposes hereof, (y) represent a determination that such item or matter did not arise in the Ordinary Course of Business or (z) be deemed or interpreted to expand the scope of the Company’s representations and warranties, obligations, covenants, conditions or agreements contained herein or in the Agreements, and matters reflected in the Schedules are not necessarily limited to matters required by this Agreement to be reflected herein and may be included solely for information purposes. The inclusion of any item or information in the Schedules shall not be deemed an admission of any fact, circumstance, liability or obligation to any third party. Moreover, in disclosing the information in the Schedules, the Company and the Blockers expressly do not waive any attorney-client privilege associated with such information or any protection afforded by the work-product doctrine with respect to any of the matters disclosed or discussed therein. The information contained in the Schedules shall be kept strictly confidential by the Parties and no third party may rely on any information disclosed or set forth therein.
Section 1.14No Recourse. Notwithstanding anything that may be expressed or implied herein (except in the case of the immediately succeeding sentence) or any document, agreement, or instrument delivered contemporaneously herewith, and notwithstanding the fact that any Party may be a partnership or limited liability company, each Party hereto, by its acceptance of the benefits of this Agreement, covenants, agrees and acknowledges that no Persons other than the Parties shall have any obligation hereunder and that it has no rights of recovery hereunder against, and no recourse hereunder or under any documents, agreements, or instruments delivered contemporaneously herewith or in respect of any oral representations made or alleged to be made in connection herewith or therewith shall be had against, any former, current or future director, officer, agent, Affiliate, manager, assignee, incorporator, controlling Person, fiduciary, representative or employee of any Party (or any of their successors or permitted assignees), against any former, current, or future general or limited partner, manager, stockholder or member of any Party (or any of their successors or permitted assignees) or any Affiliate thereof or against any former, current or future director, officer, agent, employee, Affiliate, manager, assignee, incorporator, controlling Person, fiduciary, representative, general or limited partner, stockholder, manager or member of any of the foregoing, but in each case not including the Parties (each, but excluding for the avoidance of doubt, the Parties, a “Non-Party Affiliate”), whether by or through attempted piercing of the corporate veil, by or through a claim (whether in tort, Contract or otherwise) by or on behalf of such Party against the Non-Party Affiliates, by the enforcement of any assessment or by any Proceeding, or by virtue of any statute, regulation or other applicable Law, or otherwise; it being agreed and acknowledged that no personal Liability whatsoever shall attach to, be imposed on, or otherwise be incurred by any Non-Party Affiliate, as such, for any obligations of the applicable Party under this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby, under any documents or instruments delivered contemporaneously herewith, in respect of any oral representations made or alleged to be made in connection herewith or therewith, or for any claim (whether in tort, Contract or otherwise) based on, in respect of, or by reason of, such obligations or their creation. Notwithstanding the forgoing, a Non-Party Affiliate may have obligations under any documents, agreements, or instruments delivered contemporaneously herewith or otherwise contemplated hereby if such Non-Party Affiliate is party to such document, agreement or instrument. Except to the extent otherwise set forth in, and subject in all cases to the terms and conditions of and limitations herein, this Agreement may only be enforced against, and any claim or cause of action of any kind based upon, arising out of, or related to this Agreement, or the negotiation, execution or performance hereof, may only be brought against the entities that are named as Parties hereto and then only with respect to the specific obligations set forth herein with respect to such Party. Each Non-Party Affiliate is intended as a third-party beneficiary of this Section 13.14. Notwithstanding any provision hereof to the contrary, in no event shall the Group Companies, the Blockers or the Equityholder Representative or any of their respective Affiliates or representatives seek to recover monetary damages from any Equity Financing Source in connection with the obligations of the Equity Financing Sources for the Equity Financing under the applicable Subscription Agreement. Nothing in this Section 13.14 shall in any way limit or qualify the rights and obligations of the Equity Financing Sources for the applicable Equity Financing and the other parties to the Subscription Agreements to each other thereunder or in connection therewith (including the Company’s rights as a third party beneficiary to the Subscription Agreements in accordance with their terms to the extent expressly set forth therein).
Section 1.15Equitable Adjustments. If, during the Pre-Closing Period, the outstanding shares of JIH Capital Stock shall have been changed into a different number of shares or a different class, by reason of any stock dividend, subdivision, reclassification, recapitalization, split, combination, consolidation or exchange of shares, or any similar event shall have occurred, then any number or amount contained herein which is based upon the number of shares of JIH Capital Stock will be appropriately adjusted to provide to the Blocker Owners and the Company Equityholders and JIH Shareholders the same economic effect as contemplated hereby prior to such event.
Section 1.16Waiver of Conflicts; Attorney-Client Communications. Each of the Parties to this Agreement hereby agrees, on its own behalf and on behalf of its directors, managers, members, partners, officers, employees and Affiliates, that Kirkland & Ellis LLP may serve as counsel to the Group Companies and any Blocker, on the one hand, and the Company Equityholders, the Blocker Owners, the Equityholder Representative or certain of their respective Non-Party Affiliates (individually and collectively, the “Seller Group”), on the other hand, in connection with the negotiation, preparation, execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement, and the consummation of
75


the transactions contemplated hereby, and that, following consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, Kirkland & Ellis LLP (or any of its respective successors) may serve as counsel to the Seller Group or any director, manager, member, partner, officer, employee or Affiliate of any member of Seller Group, in connection with any litigation, claim or obligation arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement notwithstanding such representation or any continued representation of the Company and/or any of its Subsidiaries and/or Blocker, and each of the parties hereto (on its own behalf and on behalf of its Affiliates) hereby consents thereto and irrevocably waives any conflict of interest arising therefrom, and each of such parties shall cause any Affiliate thereof to consent to irrevocably waive any conflict of interest arising from such representation. The parties agree to take the steps necessary to ensure that any privilege attaching as a result of Kirkland & Ellis LLP representing the Group Companies and the Blockers in connection with any of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement shall survive the Closing and shall remain in effect, provided that such privilege from and after the Closing shall be controlled by the Equityholder Representative on behalf of the Company Equityholders, the Blocker Owners, and their respective Non-Party Affiliates. As to any privileged attorney-client communications between Kirkland & Ellis LLP and the Group Companies and the Blockers in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement prior to the Closing Date (collectively, the “Privileged Communications”), the Parent Parties, the Company and each of its Subsidiaries, the Surviving Blockers, together with any of their respective Affiliates, Subsidiaries, successors or assigns, agree that no such party may use or rely on any of the Privileged Communications in any action against or involving any of the parties after the Closing. In addition, if the transactions contemplated by this Agreement are consummated, all Privileged Communications related to such transactions will become property of (and be controlled by) the Equityholder Representative, and none of Parent, JIH, any Parent Party, any Group Company, any Blocker or any of their respective Affiliates, Subsidiaries, successors or assigns shall retain any copies of such records or have any access to them. In the event that JIH or any other Parent Party is legally required or requested by any Governmental Entity to access or obtain a copy of all or a portion of the Privileged Communications, JIH or such Parent Party shall be entitled to access or obtain a copy of and disclose the Privileged Communications to the extent necessary to comply with any such legal requirement or request; provided that JIH shall promptly notify the Equityholder Representative in writing (prior to the disclosure by JIH of any Privileged Communications to the extent practicable) so that the Equityholder Representative can seek a protective order and the Parent Parties agree to use commercially reasonable efforts (at the sole cost and expense of the Equityholder Representative) to assist therewith.

By adoption of this Agreement, execution of a Blocker Letter of Transmittal or Equityholder Materials, and the acceptance of any portion of the Blocker Merger Consideration or Company Sale Consideration, each Blocker Owner and Company Equityholder hereby irrevocably constitutes and appoints the Equityholder Representative as his, her or its, agent and representative to, in addition to the other rights and authority granted to the Equityholder Representative elsewhere in this Agreement, to execute any and all instruments or other documents on behalf of such Blocker Owner and Company Equityholder, and to do any and all other acts or things on behalf of such Blocker Owner and Company Equityholder, which the Equityholder Representative may deem necessary, advisable, convenient or appropriate, or which may be required pursuant to this Agreement, the Ancillary Agreements or otherwise, in connection with the facilitation of the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby and the performance of all obligations hereunder or thereunder at or following the Closing, including the exercise of the power to: (i) execute the Ancillary Agreements, instruments or certificates on behalf of each Blocker Owner and Company Equityholder; (ii) act for each Blocker Owner and Company Equityholder with respect to any adjustment to the Estimated Aggregate Closing Consideration and the Ancillary Agreements; (iii) give and receive notices and communications to or from the Parent Parties relating to this Agreement, the Ancillary Agreements or any of the transactions and other matters contemplated hereby or thereby (except to the extent that this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement expressly contemplates that any such notice or communication shall be given or received by such Blocker Owner or Company Equityholder individually); (iv) administration of the provisions of this Agreement; (v) give or agree to, on behalf of all or any of the Blocker Owner and Company Equityholders, any and all consents, waivers, amendments or modifications deemed by the Equityholder Representative, in its sole and absolute discretion, to be necessary or appropriate under this Agreement and the execution or delivery of any documents that may be necessary or appropriate in connection therewith; (vi) amending this Agreement, any Ancillary Agreement or any of the instruments to be delivered to Parent hereunder or thereunder; (vii) (A) dispute or refrain from disputing, on behalf of each Blocker Owner and Company Equityholder, any amounts to be received by such Blocker Owner and Company Equityholder under this Agreement or any claim made by the Parent Parties under this Agreement, (B) negotiate and compromise, on behalf of each such Blocker Owner and Company Equityholder, any dispute that may arise under, and exercise or refrain from exercising any remedies available under, this Agreement, and (C) execute, on

behalf of each such Blocker Owner and Company Equityholder, any settlement agreement, release or other document with respect to such dispute or remedy; (viii) engage attorneys, accountants, agents or consultants on behalf of the Blocker Owners and Company Equityholders in connection with this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement and pay any fees related thereto, and (ix) take all actions necessary or appropriate in the judgment of the Equityholder Representative for the accomplishment of the foregoing. For the avoidance of doubt, the Equityholder Representative shall have authority and power to act on behalf of each Blocker Owner and Company Equityholder with respect to the disposition, settlement or other handling of all claims under this Agreement or the Ancillary Agreements and all rights or obligations arising under this Agreement or thereunder. The Blocker Owners and the Company Equityholders shall be bound by all actions taken and documents executed by the Equityholder Representative in connection with this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements, and the Parent Parties shall be entitled to rely on any action or decision of the Equityholder Representative. Notices or communications to or from the Equityholder Representative shall constitute notice to or from each Blocker Owner or any Company Equityholder.
(b)Authorization. Notwithstanding Section 14.1(a), in the event that the Equityholder Representative is of the opinion that it requires further authorization or advice from the Blocker Owners, and Company Equityholders on any matters concerning this Agreement, the Equityholder Representative shall be entitled to seek such further authorization from the Equityholders prior to acting on their behalf. In such event, each Blocker Owner and Company Equityholder shall vote in accordance with the pro rata portion of the Aggregate Closing Consideration paid to such Blocker Owner and Company Equityholder in accordance with this Agreement and the authorization of a majority of such Persons shall be binding on all of the Blocker Owners and Company Equityholders and shall constitute the authorization of the Blocker Owners and Company Equityholders. The appointment of the Equityholder Representative is coupled with an interest and shall be irrevocable by any Blocker Owner and Company Equityholder in any manner or for any reason. This authority granted to the Equityholder Representative shall not be affected by the death, illness, dissolution, disability, incapacity or other inability to act of any principal pursuant to any applicable Law. Cascade GP, LLC hereby accepts its appointment as the initial Equityholder Representative. Any decision, act, consent or instruction taken by the Equityholder Representative, on behalf of the Equityholders, pursuant to this Section 14.1(b) (each, an “Authorized Action”) shall be final, binding and conclusive on each Blocker Owner and Company Equityholder as fully as if such Person had taken such Authorized Action. The Parent Parties agree that the Equityholder Representative, as the Equityholder Representative, shall have no liability to any Parent Party for any Authorized Action.
(c)Resignation; Vacancies. The Equityholder Representative may resign from its position as Equityholder Representative at any time by written notice delivered to Parent and the Equityholders. If there is a vacancy at any time in the position of the Equityholder Representative for any reason, such vacancy shall be filled by a majority vote in accordance with the method set forth in Section 14.1(b).
(d)No Liability. All acts on behalf of the Equityholder Representative hereunder in its capacity as such shall be deemed to be acts of the Blocker Owners and Company Equityholders and not of the Equityholder Representative individually. Without limiting Section 13.11, the Equityholder Representative shall not be liable to Parent, any Blocker Owner or Company Equityholder or any other Person in its capacity as the Equityholder Representative for any reason, including for anything which it may do or refrain from doing in connection with this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement; provided, subject to Section 14.1(e), the foregoing will not prevent liability to Parent for the Equityholder Representative’s willful breach of this Agreement. The Equityholder Representative shall not be liable to the Blocker Owners and Company Equityholders, in its capacity as the Equityholder Representative, for any liability of any Blocker Owner and Company Equityholder or otherwise, or for any error of judgment or for any mistake in fact or Law, except in the case of the Equityholder Representative’s gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined in a final and non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction. The Equityholder Representative may seek the advice of legal counsel in the event of any dispute or question as to the construction of any of the provisions of this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement or its duties or rights hereunder or thereunder, and it shall be fully protected with respect to any action taken, omitted or suffered by it in accordance with the advice of such counsel. The Equityholder Representative shall not by reason of this Agreement have a fiduciary relationship in respect of any Equityholder, except in respect of amounts received on behalf of any Blocker Owner and Company Equityholder (if any). The Parent Parties shall be entitled to rely conclusively on any decision, action (or inaction), consent or instruction of the Equityholder Representative as being the decision, action, consent or instruction of the Blocker Owners and Company Equityholders, and Parent and the Merger Subs shall be entitled to deal solely with the Equityholder Representative (and shall not be required to deal with any individual Blocker Owner or Company Equityholder, in its capacity as such) with respect to all matters in connection with this Agreement. The Parent Parties are hereby relieved from any Liability to any Person for acts done by them in accordance with any such decision, act, consent or instruction of the Equityholder Representative.

(e)Indemnification; Expenses. Each Blocker Owner and Company Equityholder shall severally (based on each such Blocker Owner’s or Company Equityholder’s Allocable Percentage), and not jointly, indemnify and hold harmless the Equityholder Representative from and against any loss incurred without gross negligence or willful misconduct (as determined in a final and non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction) on the part of the Equityholder Representative and arising out of or in connection with the acceptance or administration of its duties hereunder. The Equityholder Representative may use the Equityholder Representative Expense Amount to pay any fees, costs, expenses or other obligations incurred by the Equityholder Representative acting in its capacity as such. Any expenses or taxable income incurred by the Equityholder Representative in connection with the performance of its duties under this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement shall not be the personal obligation of the Equityholder Representative but shall be payable by and attributable to the Blocker Owners and Company Equityholders based on each such Blocker Owner’s and Company Equityholder’s Allocable Percentage. The Equityholder Representative may from time to time submit invoices to the Equityholders covering such expenses and liabilities, which shall be paid by the Blocker Owners and Company Equityholders promptly following the receipt thereof based on their respective Allocable Percentages. Upon the request of any Blocker Owner and Company Equityholder, the Equityholder Representative shall provide such Blocker Owner and Company Equityholder with an accounting of all material expenses and liabilities paid by the Equityholder Representative in its capacity as such.
