Purchaser acknowledges that it has been provided adequate access to information relating to the Purchased Assets for such purpose. Purchaser has been represented by, and had the assistance of, counsel in the conduct of its due diligence, the preparation and negotiation of this Bill of Sale and agreements related to this Bill of Sale, and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby. In entering into this Bill of Sale, Purchaser acknowledges that it has relied solely upon its own investigation, review and analysis and has not relied on and is not relying on any representation, warranty or other statement made by or on behalf of 3M or any Selling Subsidiary, except those set forth in section 3 of this Bill of Sale.
(b)    PURCHASER AGREES THAT IT IS ACCEPTING POSSESSION OF THE PURCHASED ASSETS AT THE CLOSING “AS IS, WHERE IS”. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, it is understood and agreed by the Parties that no representation or warranty of any kind, except those set forth in section 3 of this Bill of Sale, has been made by 3M or any Selling Subsidiary regarding the Purchased Assets, written or oral, express or implied, at law or in equity, including but not limited to any representation or warranty as to (i) merchantability or fitness for a particular use or purpose, (ii) the operation or probable success or profitability of any business related to the Purchased Assets following the Closing, (iii) the accuracy or completeness of any information regarding the Purchased Assets made available to Purchaser in connection with this Bill of Sale or their investigation of the Purchased Assets. Purchaser will have no right or remedy (and 3M and each Selling Subsidiary will have no liability whatsoever) arising out of, and Purchaser expressly disclaims any reliance upon, any representation, warranty or other statement made by on behalf of 3M or any Selling Subsidiary except those set forth in section 3 of this Bill of Sale, including in any materials, documentation or other information regarding the Purchased Assets made available to Purchaser in connection with this Bill of Sale or its investigation of the Purchased Assets.
(c)    Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that it is solely responsible for, and assumes any and all risk and liability associated with, Purchased Assets and Purchaser’s ownership, handling, storage, use, transportation, sale, transfer, or other disposition (including disposal) of or relating to Purchased Assets following the Closing; provided that, other than the Warranty Services under Section 2 of this Bill of Sale, Purchaser shall have no responsibility or liability for the Purchased Assets or 3M or any Selling Subsidiary’s ownership, handling, storage, use, transportation, sale, transfer, or other disposition of Purchased Assets prior to the Closing.
(d)    Purchaser covenants, on behalf of itself and its successors and assigns, not to bring any form of suit, legal proceeding or administrative proceeding against 3M or any of its affiliates, including the Selling Subsidiaries, or any of their respective directors, officers, or employees in connection with the Purchased Assets. This covenant shall be perpetual, irrevocable and non-terminable.

5.     Removal of Purchased Assets. Purchaser agrees to assume responsibility for, and pay all expenses in connection with, removing, transporting and relocating any Purchased Assets which, at the Closing, are located at any of 3M’s facilities. Such removal shall be completed as stated in the TCMA. 3M agrees to give Purchaser, its agents and employees access to such facilities at reasonable times and upon reasonable notice for purposes of removing such Purchased Assets. Purchaser agrees that 3M shall have the right to approve the contractor(s) selected by Purchaser to remove any Purchased Assets, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld by 3M. 3M shall have no liability to Purchaser in connection with the storage at, or removal from, such facilities of the Purchased Assets after the Closing, and risk of loss with respect to such Purchased Assets shall pass to Purchaser at the Closing. Purchaser shall be

Purchaser will be liable for and will fully pay any Taxes that may be due as a result of the purchase, sale or transfer of the Purchased Assets and other transactions contemplated herein among 3M, Selling Subsidiaries, and Purchaser. If any Taxes are required by law to be charged, levied or assessed by 3M or any Selling Subsidiary, 3M or the applicable Selling Subsidiary will collect such Taxes and Purchaser agrees to reimburse 3M or the applicable Selling Subsidiary for such Taxes in addition to the Purchase Price payable under this Bill of Sale.
