3.4Payments at Closing for Expenses.  Not less than two (2) Business Days prior to the Closing Date, the Company shall deliver to Parent invoices and payment instructions from the payees of any Unpaid Transaction Expenses.  At the Effective Time, Parent shall fund the Surviving Corporation with cash in an amount equal to the Unpaid Transaction Expenses or pay the Unpaid Transaction Expenses, on behalf of the Company, in accordance with such invoices and payments instructions. In the event Parent funds the Surviving Corporation with cash to repay any Unpaid Transaction Expenses pursuant to the preceding sentence, at the Effective Time, the Surviving Corporation shall cause all Unpaid Transaction Expenses to be paid in full.

3.5Pre-Closing Estimates; Post-Closing Adjustment.

(a)Estimated Closing Statement.  At least two (2) Business Days prior to the Closing Date, the Company shall deliver to Parent a statement setting forth a good faith estimate of (i) the Unpaid Transaction Expenses (the “Estimated Unpaid Transaction Expenses”), (ii) the Indebtedness (the “Estimated Indebtedness”), (iii) the Cash and Cash Equivalents (the “Estimated Cash”) and (iv) the Net Working Capital (the “Estimated Net Working Capital”), in each case calculated in accordance with the relevant definitions herein, together with an estimated unaudited balance sheet of the Company as of the Determination Time and other reasonable supporting detail to evidence the calculation of each such amount (the “Estimated Closing Statement”), and (v) the Consideration Spreadsheet.  The Company may update the Estimated Closing Statement prior to the Closing to reflect any new information and shall consider in good faith any reasonable input from Parent regarding the estimates included in the Estimated Closing Statement following its receipt thereof and, to the extent reasonably necessary in light of such input, revise and redeliver the Estimated Closing Statement to Parent (provided, that any such revised Estimated Closing

22

AmericasActive:12666190.14


23

 

Statement shall be delivered to Parent no less than one (1) Business Day prior to the Closing Date).  The Estimated Unpaid Transaction Expenses, the Estimated Indebtedness, the Estimated Cash and the Estimated Net Working Capital set forth in the Estimated Closing Statement, as it may be so updated and revised, shall, subject to the other provisions of this Section 3.5, be used to calculate the Aggregate Merger Consideration.

(b)Closing Statement. Parent shall prepare and deliver to the Securityholders’ Representative, not later than ninety (90) days following the Closing Date, a statement setting forth Parent’s calculation of (i) the Unpaid Transaction Expenses, (ii) the Indebtedness, (iii) the Cash and Cash Equivalents, (iv) the Net Working Capital and (v) the Aggregate Merger Consideration based thereon, in each case calculated in accordance with the relevant definitions herein, together with an unaudited balance sheet of the Company as of the Determination Time and other reasonable supporting detail to evidence the calculation of each such amount (the “Closing Statement”).

(c)Objection and Dispute Period.  The Securityholders’ Representative shall have forty-five (45) days from its receipt of the Closing Statement (the “Objection Period”) to review the Closing Statement.  Parent shall grant the Securityholders’ Representative reasonable access at reasonable times and places and upon reasonable advance notice to all relevant books, records and employees of the Surviving Corporation and its Subsidiaries (if any) as reasonably requested by the Securityholders’ Representative in connection with its review of the Closing Statement.  Prior to the expiration of the Objection Period, the Securityholders’ Representative, on behalf of all Securityholders, shall inform Parent in writing of (i) its agreement with the Closing Statement and the calculation of the Aggregate Merger Consideration and the components thereof set forth therein, which shall become final, non-appealable and binding upon Parent and the Securityholders thereupon, or (ii) any disagreement it may have with the Closing Statement (the “Objection”), specifying each disputed item, the amount in dispute and setting forth in reasonable detail the basis for each such dispute (each, a “Disputed Item”).  In the event that the Securityholders’ Representative does not provide such a writing to Parent prior to the expiration of the Objection Period, the Closing Statement and the calculation of the Aggregate Merger Consideration and the components thereof set forth therein shall become final, non-appealable and binding upon Parent and the Securityholders. For a period of thirty (30) days from the date on which Parent receives the Objection (such period, the “Response Period”), Parent and the Securityholders’ Representative shall negotiate in good faith to resolve any disagreements with respect to the Disputed Items.  If Parent and the Securityholders’ Representative are able to negotiate a mutually agreeable resolution of each Disputed Item during the Response Period, and each signs a certificate to that effect, the Closing Statement and the calculation therein of the Aggregate Merger Consideration and the items set forth in the definition thereof, as adjusted to reflect such resolution, shall be deemed final, non-appealable and binding for purposes of this Agreement.  If any Disputed Items have not been resolved during the Response Period, either Parent or the Securityholders’ Representative may refer such Disputed Items to an independent, mutually agreeable, nationally recognized public accounting firm (the “Accounting Referee”) to make a final, non-appealable and binding determination as to such remaining Disputed Items pursuant to the terms hereof.  The Accounting Referee shall be directed to make a determination of the Disputed Items in accordance with Section 3.5(d) promptly, but no later than thirty (30) days, after acceptance of its appointment.  Parent and the Securityholders’ Representative agree to use their commercially reasonable efforts to effect the selection and appointment of the Accounting

23

AmericasActive:12666190.14


24

 

Referee pursuant to this Section 3.5(c) within ten (10) Business Days after the Response Period, including executing an engagement agreement with the Accounting Referee providing for reasonable and customary compensation and other terms of such engagement.  Parent and the Securityholders’ Representative shall make readily available to the Accounting Referee all relevant books, records and employees of the Surviving Corporation and its Subsidiaries (if any) that are reasonably requested by the Accounting Referee in connection with the Accounting Referee’s review of any Disputed Items.

(d)Accounting Referee.  If Disputed Items are referred to the Accounting Referee for resolution pursuant to Section 3.5(c), the Accounting Referee shall determine only with respect to the Disputed Items submitted whether and to what extent, if any, the Aggregate Merger Consideration and the components thereof set forth in the Closing Statement require adjustment.  With respect to each Disputed Item, the Accounting Referee’s determination shall be within the range of values assigned to such Disputed Item by Parent and the Securityholders’ Representative.  Any finding by the Accounting Referee shall be (i) a reasoned award stating in reasonable detail the findings of fact on which it is based, (ii) final, non-appealable and binding upon the parties hereto and (iii) the sole and exclusive remedy between the parties hereto regarding the Disputed Items so presented.  The fees and expenses of the Accounting Referee shall be borne by Parent and the Securityholders’ Representative (on behalf of the Securityholders in accordance with their respective Pro Rata Shares) in the same proportion that the dollar amount of Disputed Items which are not resolved in favor of Parent or the Securityholders’ Representative, as applicable, bears to the total dollar amount of Disputed Items resolved by the Accounting Referee.  Each of Parent and the Securityholders’ Representative (on behalf of the Securityholders in accordance with their respective Pro Rata Shares) shall bear the fees, costs and expenses of its own accountants and all of its other expenses incurred in connection with matters contemplated by this Section 3.5.

(e)Payment of Adjustments.

(i)If, upon the final determination of the Aggregate Merger Consideration and the components thereof as provided in Section 3.5(c) or Section 3.5(d) (the “Final Aggregate Merger Consideration”), the Aggregate Merger Consideration set forth in the Estimated Closing Statement exceeds the Final Aggregate Merger Consideration, Parent shall be entitled to recover the amount of such excess as follows: (i) first, from the Purchase Price Adjustment Escrow Funds in accordance with the terms of the Escrow Agreement and this Agreement; and (ii) second, to the extent such excess exceeds the Purchase Price Adjustment Escrow Funds, at Parent’s sole option, either (1) from the Indemnification Escrow Funds in accordance with the terms of the Escrow Agreement and this Agreement, (2) from the Securityholders’ Representative (on behalf of the Securityholders in accordance with their respective Pro Rata Shares) out of the Securityholders’ Representative Expense Fund, (3) from the Joining Parties, severally in accordance with their respective Joining Party Pro Rata Shares, by wire transfer of immediately available funds to the account designated by Parent, (4) by way of set-off pursuant to Section 10.8 or (5) from any combination of the foregoing.  The Securityholders’ Representative and Parent shall execute and deliver a joint instruction to the Escrow Agent instructing the Escrow Agent to release an amount equal to such excess from the Purchase Price Adjustment Escrow Account and, if applicable, from the

24

25

 

Indemnification Escrow Account, within five (5) Business Days after the determination of the Final Aggregate Merger Consideration, and the Escrow Agent shall make the payment of such amounts to Parent within five (5) Business Days of its receipt of such joint instruction.  If applicable, within five (5) Business Days after the determination of the Final Aggregate Merger Consideration, the Joining Parties shall make any such payment to Parent as required by this Section 3.5(e).  If the excess referred to in the first sentence of this Section 3.5(e) is less than the Purchase Price Adjustment Escrow Funds, Parent and the Securityholders’ Representative shall execute and deliver a joint instruction to the Escrow Agent instructing the Escrow Agent to release the remaining Purchase Price Adjustment Escrow Funds after giving effect to the release contemplated by the first sentence of this Section 3.5(e) to (i) the Paying Agent for distribution to the Securityholders in respect of such shares of Capital Stock and In the Money Vested Options that are Non-Withholding Options and (ii) the Surviving Corporation for distribution to the Optionholders in respect of the In the Money Vested Options (other than the Non-Withholding Options) in accordance with the principles of Section 3.1 and Section 3.2.  The Paying Agent shall make distributions pursuant to this Section 3.5(e)(i) to the Securityholders in the same form and in accordance with the same wiring instructions or delivery addresses, as applicable, as used to make distributions to each such Securityholder in connection with Closing (including, if applicable, by relying on the payment instructions set forth in the applicable Letter of Transmittal or the Consideration Spreadsheet), except as otherwise indicated in any written update delivered to the Paying Agent to reflect any assignments or other changes in factual information.

(ii)If the Final Aggregate Merger Consideration is greater than the Aggregate Merger Consideration set forth in the Estimated Closing Statement, the amount of such excess shall be owed to the Securityholders in respect of their shares of Capital Stock and In the Money Vested Options.  In such case, Parent shall deliver, within five (5) Business Days after the determination of the Final Aggregate Merger Consideration, cash in an aggregate amount equal to such excess to the Paying Agent and, in the case of the holders of In the Money Vested Options (other than Non-Withholding Options), the Surviving Corporation, who shall disburse within five (5) Business Days of its receipt thereof such amount to the Securityholders in respect of such shares of Capital Stock and In the Money Vested Options in accordance with the principles of Section 3.1 and Section 3.2.  The Paying Agent shall make distributions pursuant to this Section 3.5(e)(ii) to the Securityholders in the same form and in accordance with the same wiring instructions or delivery addresses, as applicable, as used to make distributions to each such Securityholder in connection with Closing (including, if applicable, by relying on the payment instructions set forth in the applicable Letter of Transmittal or the Consideration Spreadsheet), except as otherwise indicated in any written update delivered to the Paying Agent to reflect any assignments or other changes in factual information.

(iii)Any payment pursuant to this Section 3.5(e) shall be treated for all Tax purposes as an adjustment to the Aggregate Merger Consideration.

(f)Subject to Section 13.13, each of the parties hereto acknowledges and agrees that the purchase price adjustment provisions set forth in this Section 3.5 shall be the sole and exclusive remedy of the parties hereto, the Parent Indemnified Parties, the Joining Parties and

25

AmericasActive:12666190.14


26

 

any other Person with respect to (i) determining whether or not any adjustment would be made to the Aggregate Merger Consideration based on Unpaid Transaction Expenses, Indebtedness, Cash and Cash Equivalents and Net Working Capital (or any component of any such item) pursuant to this Section 3.5 (whether or not any such adjustment was, in fact, made), and/or (ii) determining the amount of any such adjustment.

3.6Expense Amount.  At the Effective Time, Parent shall deposit into an account designated by the Securityholders’ Representative (the “Securityholders’ Representative Expense Fund”) an amount equal to $350,000 (such amount, the “Securityholders’ Representative Expense Amount”).  The Securityholders’ Representative Expense Amount may be used at any time by the Securityholders’ Representative to fund or reimburse (a) any expenses incurred by it in the performance of its duties and obligations hereunder (including its obligations under Section 3.5(e)), under the Escrow Agreement, or under the Securityholders’ Representative engagement agreement including those duties and obligations listed in Article XII, or (b) as otherwise determined by the Advisory Group.  The Securityholders’ Representative is not providing any investment supervision, recommendations or advice and shall have no responsibility or liability for any loss of principal of the Securityholders’ Representative Expense Amount other than as a result of its gross negligence or willful misconduct. The Securityholders’ Representative is not acting as a withholding agent or in any similar capacity in connection with the Securityholders’ Representative Expense Amount, and has no tax reporting or income distribution obligations.  The Indemnitors will not receive any interest on the Securityholders’ Representative Expense Amount and assign to the Securityholders’ Representative any such interest. Subject to Advisory Group approval, the Securityholders’ Representative may contribute funds to the Securityholders’ Representative Expense Amount from any consideration otherwise distributable to the Indemnitors from the Escrow Funds. The Securityholders’ Representative Expense Amount will be held by the Securityholders’ Representative for so long as the Securityholders’ Representative determines is reasonably necessary for it to fulfill its obligations and duties under this Agreement; provided, that following the completion of all such obligations and duties and the satisfaction of all expense reimbursements to which the Securityholders’ Representative is entitled in connection therewith, the Securityholders’ Representative shall distribute such amount to (i) the Paying Agent for distribution to the Shareholders and Optionholders in respect of the Non-Withholding Options and (ii) the Surviving Corporation for distribution to the Optionholders in respect of the In the Money Vested Options (other than the Non-Withholding Options), each in accordance with such Indemnitor’s Pro Rata Share, it being understood and agreed that Parent and Merger Sub’s sole obligation to the Indemnitors with respect to the Securityholders’ Representative Expense Amount shall be Parent’s obligation to pay the Securityholders’ Representative Expense Amount to the Securityholders’ Representative in accordance with the first sentence of this Section 3.6 and, following such payment, neither Parent nor Merger Sub shall have any further obligation with respect to payment or delivery of the Securityholders’ Representative Expense Amount to the Indemnitors (other than to the Optionholders as set forth in clause (ii) of this sentence, but subject to the receipt of the necessary funds from the Securityholders’ Representative).

3.7Escrow.

26

(b)All parties hereto agree for all Tax purposes that (i) the right of the holders of Company Shares to the Escrow Amount shall be treated as deferred contingent purchase price eligible for installment sale treatment under Section 453 of the Code and any corresponding provision of foreign, state or local law, as appropriate and (ii) Parent shall be treated as the owner of the Escrow Amount solely for Tax purposes, and all interest and earnings earned from the investment and reinvestment of the Escrow Amount, or any portion thereof, shall be allocable to Parent pursuant to Section 468B(g) of the Code and Proposed Treasury Regulations Section 1.468B-8.  Any portion of the proceeds payable with respect to any In the Money Vested Option that is not a Non-Withholding Option and held in the Escrow Funds will be subject to withholding for income and employment Taxes at such time as the amounts are paid to the holder of such In the Money Vested Options. All parties hereto shall file all Tax Returns consistent with the foregoing.

3.8Payment Fund; Payments to Optionholders.

(a)At the Effective Time, Parent shall deposit with the Paying Agent, for the benefit of the Shareholders and the holders of the Non-Withholding Options, cash in the amount payable in respect of all shares of the Capital Stock and the Non-Withholding Options outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time pursuant to Section 3.1(b)(i) and Section 3.2(a)(i), (the “Payment Fund”).  The Payment Fund shall not be used for any purpose other than making the payments required by Section 3.1(b)(i) and Section 3.2(a)(i), in respect of the Company Shares and the Non-Withholding Options in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.

(b)At the Effective Time, Parent shall deposit with the Surviving Corporation, for the benefit of the holders of In the Money Vested Options (other than the Non-Withholding Options), cash in the amount payable in respect of all In the Money Vested Options, other than the Non-Withholding Options, outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time pursuant to Section 3.2(a)(i).  Such cash shall not be used for any purpose other than making the payments required by Section 3.2(a)(i), in respect of the In the Money Vested Options, other than the Non-Withholding Options, in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.

(a)Attached hereto as Exhibit I is a form of letter of transmittal (a “Letter of Transmittal”), which specifies, among other things, that delivery shall be effected, and risk of loss and title to each Company Share shall pass only upon the delivery to the Paying Agent of a duly executed and completed Letter of Transmittal and such other Tax documents as Parent or the Paying Agent may reasonably request, together with any stock or share certificates evidencing such Company Share (collectively, the “Required Shareholder Information”), and instructions for use in effecting the surrender of such Company Share in exchange for a cash payment of the Merger Consideration at or in connection with the Closing as more fully described below.  As soon as reasonably practicable after the Effective Time, at the Securityholders’ Representative’s expense, Parent shall, or shall cause the Surviving Corporation or the Paying Agent to, mail (or deliver by any other method agreed to in writing by the Securityholders’ Representative) to each record Shareholder who has not previously submitted a duly executed Letter of Transmittal as of the Effective Time a form of Letter of Transmittal and instructions.

(b)If a Shareholder provides to Parent (or the Paying Agent) its, his or her Required Shareholder Information at least one (1) Business Day prior to the Closing Date, then Parent shall cause the Paying Agent to pay to such Shareholder within five (5) Business Days following the Closing Date the consideration specified in Section 3.1(b)(i).  If a Shareholder provides to Parent (or the Paying Agent) its, his or her Required Shareholder Information any time after one (1) Business Days prior to the Closing Date, then such Shareholder shall be paid by the Paying Agent as soon as reasonably practicable, and in any event within five (5) Business Days thereafter, the consideration specified in Section 3.1(b)(i).  No interest will be paid or accrued on the Merger Consideration payable in respect of the Company Shares exchanged pursuant to this Section 4.1(b).  If payment is to be made to a Person other than the Person in whose name the Company Shares are registered in the books and records of the Company as of immediately prior to the Effective Time, it shall be a condition to such payment that the Person requesting such payment has paid any transfer and other Taxes required by reason of such payment being made in a name other than that of the registered holder of such shares of Capital Stock so surrendered or has established to the satisfaction of Parent that such Tax either has been paid or is not payable.

(c)Subject to the occurrence of the Effective Time, Parent shall cause to be paid upon the delivery to Parent of a duly executed and completed Option Cancellation Agreement and such other Tax documents as Parent may reasonably request from a holder of a In the Money Vested Option: (i) through the Surviving Corporation’s standard payroll practices as promptly as reasonably practicable (and in any event, no later than the first (1st) applicable regularly scheduled payroll distribution following the date of the delivery of the foregoing documents referenced in this Section 4.1(c)), to each such holder of an In the Money Vested Option (other than Non-Withholding Options), the consideration specified in Section 3.2(a)(i) (subject to applicable withholding Tax), without interest; and (ii) to each such holder of a Non-Withholding Option, the consideration specified in Section 3.2(a)(i), without interest, paid by the Paying Agent as promptly as reasonably practicable following the Closing Date (and in any event, within two (2) Business

4.2Dissenters’ Rights.

(a)Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, any shares of Capital Stock that are issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time and that are held by Shareholders who, in accordance with Chapter 13 of the CCC (the “Dissenters’ Rights Provisions”) (i) have not consented as part of the Shareholder Written Consent or Joinder Agreement to adopt and approve this Agreement, (ii) shall have demanded appraisal for such shares and complied in all respects with the Dissenters’ Rights Provisions and (iii) shall not have effectively withdrawn, lost or failed to perfect their rights to appraisal (collectively, the “Dissenting Shares”), will not be converted as described in Section 3.1, but at the Effective Time, by virtue of the Merger and without any action on the part of the holder thereof, shall be cancelled and shall cease to exist and shall represent the right to receive only those rights provided under the Dissenters’ Rights Provisions; provided, however, that all shares of Capital Stock held by Shareholders who shall have failed to perfect or who effectively shall have withdrawn or lost their rights to appraisal of such shares under the Dissenters’ Rights Provisions shall thereupon be deemed to have been cancelled and retired and to have been converted, as of the Effective Time, into the right to receive the Merger Consideration provided for in Section 3.1.  Persons who have perfected statutory rights with respect to Dissenting Shares as aforesaid will not be paid as provided in this Agreement and will have only such rights as are provided by the Dissenters’ Rights Provisions with respect to such Dissenting Shares.  The Company shall give Parent and Merger Sub prompt written notice of any demands received by the Company for the exercise of appraisal rights with respect to Company Shares and Parent shall have the right to participate in all negotiations and proceedings with respect to such demands.  The Company shall not, except with the prior written consent of Parent (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), make any payment with respect to, or settle or offer to settle, any such demands.

(b)Each dissenting Shareholder who becomes entitled under the Dissenters’ Rights Provisions to payment for Dissenting Shares shall receive payment therefor after the Effective Time from Parent (but only after the amount thereof shall have been agreed upon or finally determined pursuant to the Dissenters’ Rights Provisions), and such Company Shares shall be cancelled.  Any amount held by the Paying Agent in respect of any such Company Shares shall be promptly returned to Parent and retained by Parent for payment as set forth in the foregoing sentence.

In addition, the Company shall be entitled to withhold on any proceeds payable hereunder to any Shareholder with respect to any withholding amounts previously remitted to a taxing authority on such Shareholder’s behalf and such withheld amounts shall be treated as having been paid to such Shareholder at the Closing.

68

 

to include all such Taxes; (iii) in the case of any Taxes or refunds of Taxes (or credits for overpayment of Taxes) measured by income, gross receipts, payments, sales, or payroll of the Company for the Pre-Closing Tax Period, be determined based on an interim closing of the books as of the close of business on the Closing Date; and (iv) in the case of personal property, real property, ad valorem and other similar Taxes of the Company imposed on a periodic basis during a Straddle Period, be deemed to be the amount of such other Tax or refund of other Tax (or credit or overpayment) for the entire taxable period multiplied by a fraction the numerator of which is the number of days in the taxable period ending on the Closing Date and the denominator of which is the number of days in such Straddle Period.

(h)Transfer Taxes.  Any sales, use, transfer, stamp, duties, recording and similar Taxes incurred as a result of the Contemplated Transactions (collectively, “Transfer Taxes”) arising under or related to the Separation Agreement, if applicable, shall be borne by the Securityholders (unless otherwise satisfied by SupplyPike).  All other Transfer Taxes incurred in connection with this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby shall be borne one-half by Parent and one-half by the Securityholders.  Parent shall prepare and file all necessary Tax Returns and other documentation with respect to Transfer Taxes and timely remit all such Transfer Taxes.

(i)Tax Contests.  Parent shall have the right to control any audit, litigation or other proceeding with respect to Taxes and Tax Returns of the Company that relate to a Pre-Closing Tax Period or a Pre-Closing Straddle Period (a “Pre-Closing Tax Contest”); provided, however, that if the Securityholders could be obligated to indemnify Parent under this Agreement, the Securityholders’ Representative shall have the right to participate in (at its own expense); provided, further, Parent shall not settle or compromise any such Pre-Closing Tax Contest that relates to an Indemnified Tax or any other claim for indemnification related to or arising out of Tax matters (including, without limitation, a breach of any representation or warranty in Section 5.7, Section 5.5(r) or Section 5.8) without the Securityholders’ Representative’s prior written consent (not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed). Parent shall provide the Securityholders’ Representative with prompt notice of any written inquiries by a taxing authority relating to a Pre-Closing Tax Contest within fifteen (15) days of the receipt of such notice.  To the extent that this Section 8.9(i) is inconsistent with Section 10.4 as to any Tax matters, this Section 8.9(i) shall control.

8.10Further Action.  Each of the parties hereto shall use its respective commercially reasonable efforts to take or cause to be taken all appropriate action, do or cause to be done all things necessary, proper or advisable and execute and deliver such documents and other papers, as may be required to carry out the provisions of this Agreement and consummate and make effective the Contemplated Transactions.

8.11No Solicitation.

(a)During the Pre-Closing Period, the Company shall not, and will take such action as is reasonably necessary to direct that its directors, officers, advisors and other authorized representatives do not, directly or indirectly, initiate or solicit, or knowingly facilitate or encourage, any inquiries regarding, or the making or implementation of, any Acquisition Proposal.  During the Pre-Closing Period, the Company shall notify Parent in writing promptly but in any

(c)The Company shall, and shall direct its directors, officers, advisors and other authorized representatives to, immediately cease and cause to be terminated any existing discussions or negotiations with any persons or entities (other than Parent and Merger Sub) conducted heretofore with respect to any of the foregoing. The Company agrees not to release any third party from the confidentiality provisions of any agreement to which the Company is a party.

8.12R&W Insurance Policy.  On the date hereof, Parent has bound a representations and warranties insurance policy in the form attached hereto as Exhibit K (the “R&W Insurance Policy”) for the benefit of the Parent and the other Parent Indemnified Parties with a retention amount of $2,520,000, except for breaches of the Fundamental Representations and the Tax Representations for which the initial retention amount shall be $1,260,000.  The premium and fees of the insurer of the R&W Insurance Policy in respect thereof will be borne fifty percent (50%) by Parent and fifty percent (50%) by the Securityholders (in the case of the Securityholders, as Company Transaction Expenses).

8.13Closing Bonuses.  At or promptly following the Closing Date, but in any event no later than thirty (30) days following the Closing Date, the Company shall pay the Closing Bonuses to the employees of the Company listed on the Closing Bonuses Schedule in the amounts listed thereon.  Prior to the Closing, the Company shall deliver bonus award letters to such employees giving them notice of such bonuses, which letters shall be in form and substance satisfactory to Parent and the Company (it being agreed and understood by Parent and the Company that such letters shall not include a release unless otherwise agreed upon by Parent and the Company).  The parties agree that the Closing Bonuses shall be deductible on the Company’s income Tax Returns for the taxable period ending on the Closing Date to the extent permitted by law.

any exercise by any Shareholder of its rights under the Dissenters’ Rights Provisions in connection with the Merger or the Contemplated Transactions) (the matters set forth in Section 10.2(a) and Section 10.2(b) are referred to herein as “Indemnifiable Matters”).

(c)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Agreement (except as set forth in Section 10.2(f)), Parent Indemnified Parties’ indemnification rights pursuant to Section 10.2(a) shall be limited as follows:

(i)The Parent Indemnified Parties’ sole source of recovery with respect to Losses resulting from the Indemnifiable Matters under Section 10.2(a) shall be limited to the Indemnification Escrow Funds (the “Escrow Cap”).

(ii)The Parent Indemnified Parties shall be entitled pursuant to Section 10.2(a) to recover only for (A) any Loss resulting from the Indemnifiable Matters thereunder that exceeds $27,500 per event or series of related events (the “Minimum Threshold”) and (B) any Losses resulting from the Indemnifiable Matters thereunder to the extent that the total of all such Losses above the Minimum Threshold with respect to such matters exceeds $1,260,000 (and, for the avoidance of doubt, only the amount of such excess) (the “Retention Basket”).

(d)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Agreement (except as set forth in Section 10.2(f)), Parent Indemnified Parties’ indemnification rights pursuant to Section 10.2(a) and Section 10.2(b) shall be limited as set forth in Section 10.5 and as follows:

(i)In calculating amounts payable to the Parent Indemnified Parties pursuant to Article X, the amount of any Losses shall be computed net of (A) any insurance proceeds actually received by any Parent Indemnified Party on account of such Losses (including, as applicable, pursuant to the Tail Insurance Policy or the R&W Insurance Policy), in each case net of the cost of obtaining such recovery from the applicable insurance policy, including collection costs and costs, if any, of premium adjustments with respect to such insurance attributable to such recovery, and (B) any payment from any third party pursuant to any indemnification or contribution arrangement or otherwise, including, for the avoidance of doubt, any indemnification or contribution payment by SupplyPike pursuant to any of the SupplyPike Agreements, in each case, net of the cost of obtaining such recovery from such third party, including collection costs.  In the event that an insurance (including pursuant to the Tail Insurance Policy or the R&W Insurance Policy) or other recovery is made by any Parent Indemnified Party with respect to any Loss for which any Parent Indemnified Party has been indemnified hereunder, then a refund equal to the aggregate amount of the net recovery shall be promptly delivered by Parent (or its agent) to the Indemnitors (based on each such Indemnitor’s Pro Rata Share) or the Joining Parties (based on each such Joining Party’s Pro Rata Share), as the case may be (or, to the extent such recovery was made from the Indemnification Escrow Funds, to the Indemnitors based on each such Indemnitor’s Pro Rata Share or, if such refund is made prior to the Indemnification Escrow Expiration Date, to the Indemnification Escrow Funds) in accordance with the instructions of the Securityholders’ Representative.  For the avoidance of doubt, no Parent Indemnified Party shall be required to refund any amounts recovered under the R&W Insurance Policy to the extent such refund would, after taking into account

76

the deductible and other limitations under the R&W Insurance Policy, have the effect of reducing the amount of indemnifiable Losses actually recovered by the Parent Indemnified Parties with respect to such claim below the amount of indemnified Losses to which the Parent Indemnified Parties would otherwise be entitled to recover from the Indemnitors or the Joining Parties pursuant to this Article X, but for this Section 10(d)(i).  Parent, the Surviving Corporation and each other Parent Indemnified Party shall take all steps required under applicable law to mitigate, and in any event shall use commercially reasonable efforts to recover under insurance policies as promptly as practicable for, any Losses for which indemnification may be claimed by any of them under this Agreement.

(ii)No breach of any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement contained herein shall give rise to any right on the part of a Parent, Merger Sub, or other Parent Indemnified Party, after the consummation of the Contemplated Transactions, to rescind this Agreement or any of the Contemplated Transactions (other than to the extent such right may not be waived under applicable law).

(iii)Any Loss for which any Parent Indemnified Party is entitled to indemnification under this Section 10.2 shall be determined without duplication of recovery by reason of the state of facts giving rise to such Loss would allow for recovery under more than one Indemnifiable Matter or as a result of breaches of more than one of the representations and warranties contained in this Agreement.  No Parent Indemnified Party shall be entitled to indemnification under this Agreement for any Loss to the extent such Loss was already reflected or otherwise reserved for in the calculation of the Aggregate Merger Consideration at the Closing.

(iv)No Parent Indemnified Party shall be entitled to indemnification under this Article X for punitive damages unless such damages are awarded by a court to a third party claimant in a Third Party Claim for which such Parent Indemnified Party is entitled to indemnification under this Article X.

(v)(A) Nothing in this Article X shall restrict or prohibit Parent from making and pursuing any claim under the R&W Insurance Policy obtained by the Parent in connection with this Agreement, and (B) the claims period and limitations under the R&W Insurance Policy may differ from the terms herein but shall have no effect on the indemnification obligations of the Indemnitors or the Joining Parties hereunder.

(vi)The Parent Indemnified Parties’ sole remedy for Losses attributable to any breach of a Tax Representation (other than Sections 5.7(a)(viii), (ix), (xiii), (xvi) or (xviii)) shall be limited to Taxes incurred by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries in Pre-Closing Tax Periods and the Indemnitors shall have no liability or indemnification obligation for any Losses relating to Taxes resulting from any action taken by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries on the Closing Date after the Closing outside the ordinary course of business.

(vii)In calculating amounts payable to any Parent Indemnified Party pursuant to this Article X, the amount of any Losses shall be computed net of any Tax savings or benefits actually realized in the year of the Loss or the following taxable year by the Parent Indemnified Party or its Affiliates that is attributable to any deduction, loss,

77

credit, refund or other reduction in Tax resulting from or arising out of such Loss, in each case computed at the actual effective Tax rate applicable to the applicable Parent Indemnified Party or such Affiliates.

(viii)The representations and warranties made by the Company in Article V shall in no event be affected by (A) any investigation, inquiry or examination made for or on behalf of any of the Parent Indemnified Parties, (B) any knowledge of any of the Parent Indemnified Parties or their respective officers, directors, managers, equityholders, employees or agents or (C) the acceptance by Parent or Merger Sub of any certificate delivered by or on behalf of the Company hereunder.

(ix)For purposes of determining whether there has been any inaccuracy or breach of any representation or warranty of the Company set forth in Article V and the amount of Losses arising therefrom, each representation and warranty in this Agreement shall be read without regard and without giving effect to the term, or, as applicable, clause containing “material,” “material adverse effect,” “Company Material Adverse Effect,” “except as would not have a Company Material Adverse Effect” or similar phrases or clauses contained in such representation or warranty the inclusion of which would limit or potentially limit a claim by any Parent Indemnified Party under this Article X (as if such word or clause, as applicable, were deleted from such representation and warranty).

(e)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Agreement (except as set forth in Section 10.2(f)), the total aggregate liability of each Indemnitor (including, for the avoidance of doubt, in such Indemnitor’s capacity as a Joining Party) under this Agreement shall not exceed such Indemnitor’s Pro Rata Share of the Aggregate Cap to the extent actually received by such Indemnitor (inclusive of such Indemnitor’s interest in the Indemnity Escrow Funds, the Purchase Price Adjustment Escrow Funds and the Securityholders’ Representative Expense Funds) (the “Individual Aggregate Cap”).  The “Aggregate Cap” means an amount equal to (i) the Aggregate Merger Consideration (as finally determined) minus (ii) $25,200,000.

(f)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Article X, there shall be no limitation on the liability of any Indemnitor, any Joining Party, the Company or any other Person in respect of Actual Fraud committed by such Indemnitor, Joining Party, the Company or any other Person, other than the Individual Aggregate Cap with respect to the total aggregate liability of each Indemnitor (including, for the avoidance of doubt, in such Indemnitor’s capacity as a Joining Party) under this Agreement with respect to Actual Fraud committed by the Company (it being understood and agreed upon that the Individual Aggregate Cap shall not apply with respect to Actual Fraud committed by such Indemnitor (including, for the avoidance of doubt, in such Indemnitor’s capacity as a Joining Party)).

10.3Claims for Indemnification.

(a)The period during which an Indemnity Claim for a particular Indemnifiable Matter under this Article X may be made (the “Claims Period”) shall be the Survival Period applicable to such Indemnifiable Matter.  Any Indemnity Claims made with respect to an Indemnifiable Matter after the applicable Claims Period for such Indemnifiable Matter shall be barred, and the Indemnitors and the Joining Parties shall have no liability with respect thereto.

78

79

 

(b)If a Parent Indemnified Party wishes to bring an Indemnity Claim hereunder, the Parent Indemnified Party shall give prompt written notice (a “Claim Notice”) thereof to the Securityholders’ Representative; provided, that the failure to so notify the Securityholders’ Representative promptly shall not relieve the Indemnitors or the Joining Parties of their obligations under this Article X with respect to the Indemnity Claim asserted in the Claim Notice, except to the extent prejudiced by such failure or delay. The Claim Notice shall specify the Indemnifiable Matter that is the basis for the Indemnity Claim (including, if applicable, the specific representation, warranty, covenant or certification claimed to be breached), the Losses incurred by, or reasonably anticipated to be incurred by, the Parent Indemnified Party on account thereof and the facts and circumstances giving rise to such Indemnity Claim, set forth in reasonable detail. The Claim Notice may be updated and amended from time to time prior to the resolution of the Indemnity Claim set forth therein by the Parent Indemnified Party by delivering an updated or amended Claim Notice to the Securityholders’ Representative, so long as the delivery of the original Claim Notice is made within the applicable Claims Period and such update or amendment relates to the underlying facts and circumstances specifically set forth in such original Claim Notice.  If an objection has been timely made by the Securityholders’ Representative under Section 10.3(c) with respect to a Claim Notice which Claim Notice is subsequently updated or amended, the Securityholders’ Representative will be deemed to have objected to such updated or amended Claim Notice unless otherwise agreed by the Securityholders’ Representative in writing.  If the Securityholders’ Representative did not so object to the original Claim Notice, the provisions of Section 10.3(c) (including the Securityholders’ Representative right to object to the updated or amended Claim Notice) shall apply to the updated or amended Claim Notice, mutatis mutandis.  The Parent Indemnified Party shall include with each Claim Notice the documentation and other information within its possession and control supporting the matters asserted in the Claim Notice or any amendment or update thereto, and such additional materials in its possession and control that form the basis for such claims as reasonably requested by the Securityholders’ Representative, it being understood and agreed that the Parent Indemnified Party shall have no obligation to provide any materials subject to attorney-client privilege or that constitute attorney work product absent a customary joint defense agreement or similar arrangement that is reasonably acceptable to the Parent Indemnified Party and the Securityholders’ Representative.

(c)Unless the Securityholders’ Representative objects to the Indemnity Claim in a writing delivered to the Parent Indemnified Party or Parent within thirty (30) days after receipt of a Claim Notice (which written notice will describe in reasonable detail the basis for objecting to the Indemnity Claim, including the amount of the Losses disputed or reasonably anticipated to be disputed), the Parent Indemnified Party shall, subject to the other terms of this Article X, be entitled to receive in respect of the Indemnity Claim set forth in such Claim Notice the amount of Losses that are specified in such Claim Notice (or if only a portion of such Losses are disputed, such portion of Losses that are undisputed).  Any disputed Indemnity Claims shall be resolved either (i) in a written agreement signed by the relevant Parent Indemnified Party and the Securityholders’ Representative or (ii) by the final, non-appealable decision of a court resolving such disputed Indemnity Claim in accordance with Section 13.7.

10.4Third Party Claims.  In the event of the assertion or commencement by any third party of any claim, litigation, action, suit, arbitration or other similar proceeding with respect to which any Indemnitor or Joining Party may become obligated to indemnify a Parent Indemnified Party pursuant to this Article X (a “Third Party Claim”), Parent shall assume the defense or

79

AmericasActive:12666190.14


80

 

handling of such Third Party Claim and shall defend against such Third Party Claim in good faith.  The Securityholders’ Representative shall have the right to receive copies of all pleadings, notices and communications with respect to the Third Party Claim to the extent that receipt of such documents by the Securityholders’ Representative does not adversely affect any privilege relating to the applicable Parent Indemnified Party and Parent shall provide the Securityholders’ Representative the opportunity to consult with and participate in, but not to determine or conduct, any defense of the Third Party Claim or settlement negotiations with respect to the Third Party Claim, all at the sole expense of the Indemnitors or the Joining Parties, as the case may be.  No Parent Indemnified Party shall have any right to be indemnified for any such Third Party Claim that is settled or compromised without the prior written consent of the Securityholders’ Representative, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed and which consent shall be deemed to have been given unless the Securityholders’ Representative shall have objected within thirty (30) days after written request for such consent by Parent.

10.5Payment of Indemnifiable Losses.

(a)by the mutual written consent of Parent (on behalf of itself and Merger Sub) and the Company;

(b)by either the Company, on the one hand, or Parent, on the other hand, by written notice to the other if any Governmental Body of competent jurisdiction shall have issued an injunction or taken any other action that permanently restrains, enjoins or otherwise prohibits the consummation of the Merger, and such injunction or other action shall have become final and non-appealable;

(c)by either the Company, on the one hand, or Parent, on the other hand, by written notice to the other, if the consummation of the Merger shall not have occurred on or before January 31, 2019 (the “Termination Date”); provided, however, that (A) the right to terminate this Agreement under this Section 11.1(c) shall not be available to any party whose failure (or, in the case of Parent, Merger Sub’s failure) to comply with any provision of this Agreement has been the primary cause of, or primarily resulted in, the failure of the Merger to occur on or before the Termination Date and (B) the parties may mutually agree to extend the Termination Date if the failure to consummate the Merger is due to regulatory or antitrust issues;

(d)by the Company, if the Company is not then in material breach of any term of this Agreement, upon written notice to Parent if there occurs a breach of any representation, warranty or covenant of Parent or Merger Sub contained in this Agreement, and which breach, in the absence of a cure within thirty (30) days following delivery of such written notice to Parent, would cause any of the closing conditions set forth in Sections 9.1 or 9.3 to not be satisfied, and which breach has continued without cure for a period of thirty (30) days following delivery of such written notice to Parent;

(e)by Parent or Merger Sub, if neither Parent nor Merger Sub is then in material breach of any term of this Agreement, upon written notice to the Company if there occurs a breach of any representation, warranty or covenant of the Company contained in this Agreement, and

(f)by Parent if written consents adopting this Agreement and approving the Merger by the Required Shareholder Vote shall not have been delivered to the Company, with a copy thereof delivered to Parent, within forty-eight (48) hours after the execution and delivery of this Agreement; provided, that if such written consents are provided prior to Parent terminating this Agreement, Parent’s termination right under this clause (f) will be terminated and have no further force and effect.

11.2Effect of Termination.  In the event of the termination of this Agreement pursuant to Section 11.1, this Agreement shall forthwith become null and void and have no effect, without any liability on the part of Parent, Merger Sub or the Company, or any of their respective directors, officers, employees, partners, managers, members, shareholders or other representatives, and all rights and obligations of any party hereto shall cease, except that the agreements contained in Section 8.4, this Article XI and Article XIII shall survive the termination of this Agreement; provided, that nothing herein shall relieve any party hereto from liability resulting from any willful breach of such party’s representations, warranties, covenants or agreements contained herein prior to such termination, or any intentional fraud of such party.

(b)engage counsel, accountants and other advisors, and incur other expenses in connection with the SR Agreements and the Contemplated Transactions, as the Securityholders’ Representative may in its sole discretion deem necessary or appropriate; and

Representative’s fraud, gross negligence or willful misconduct in connection with its performance under this Agreement or any SR Agreement.  This indemnification shall survive the termination of this Agreement.  The Securityholders’ Representative shall have the right to cause the satisfaction of some or all of such indemnification obligations using, first, any then available proceeds contained in the Securityholders’ Representative Expense Fund, second, from any distribution of Escrow Funds otherwise distributable to the Securityholders at the time of distribution, and third, directly from the Securityholders, severally and not jointly, on a pro rata basis based on the amount actually received by each such Securityholder of the Merger Consideration.

The Securityholders’ Representative may, in all questions arising under this Agreement or any SR Agreement, rely on the advice of counsel and for anything done, omitted or suffered in good faith by the Securityholders’ Representative in accordance with such advice, and the Securityholders’ Representative shall not be liable to the Securityholders or any other Person in connection therewith.  In no event shall the Securityholders’ Representative be liable hereunder or in connection herewith for any indirect, punitive, special or consequential damages.  Neither the Securityholders’ Representative, any member of the Advisory Group nor any of its or their respective members, managers, directors, officers, contractors, agents and employees (collectively, the “Securityholders’ Representative Group”), shall be liable to any Securityholder for any action taken or omitted by the Securityholders’ Representative under any SR Agreement, or in connection therewith, except that the Securityholders’ Representative shall not be relieved of any liability imposed by law for fraud, gross negligence or willful misconduct.

hereunder, (b) assume that any Person purporting to give any notice in accordance with the provisions hereof has been duly authorized to do so and (c) rely upon the Consideration Spreadsheet.

(b)Any notice or communication given or received by, and any decision, action, failure to act within a designated period of time, agreement, consent, settlement, resolution or instruction of, the Securityholders’ Representative with respect to any matter within the Securityholders’ Representative’s authorization under this Article XII or under any SR Agreement shall constitute a notice or communication to or by, or a decision, action, failure to act within a designated period of time, agreement, consent, settlement, resolution or instruction of all the Securityholders and shall be final, binding and conclusive upon each such Securityholder; and Parent, each Parent Indemnified Party and the Escrow Agent shall be entitled to rely upon any such notice, communication, decision, action, failure to act within a designated period of time, agreement, consent, settlement, resolution or instruction as being a notice or communication to or by, or a decision, action, failure to act within a designated period of time, agreement, consent, settlement, resolution or instruction of, each and every such Securityholder.

12.7Orders.  The Securityholders’ Representative is authorized, in its sole discretion, to comply with final, nonappealable orders or decisions issued or process entered by any court of competent jurisdiction with respect to the Escrow Funds.  If any portion of the Escrow Funds is disbursed to the Securityholders’ Representative and is at any time attached, garnished or levied upon under any court order, or in case the payment, assignment, transfer, conveyance or delivery of any such property shall be stayed or enjoined by any court order, or in case any order, judgment or decree shall be made or entered by any court affecting such property or any part thereof, then and in any such event, the Securityholders’ Representative is authorized, in its sole discretion, but in good faith, to rely upon and comply with any such order, writ, judgment or decree which it is advised by legal counsel selected by it is binding upon it without the need for appeal or other action; and if the Securityholders’ Representative complies with any such order, writ, judgment or decree, he shall not be liable to any Securityholder or to any other Person by reason of such compliance even though such order, writ, judgment or decree may be subsequently reversed, modified, annulled set aside or vacated.

12.8Removal of Securityholders’ Representative; Authority of Securityholders’ Representative.  Indemnitors representing a majority of the Pro Rata Shares of the Indemnitors shall have the right at any time to remove or replace the then-acting Securityholders’ Representative and to appoint a successor Securityholders’ Representative; provided, however, that neither such removal of the then-acting Securityholders’ Representative nor such appointment of a successor Securityholders’ Representative shall be effective until the delivery to Parent of executed counterparts of a writing signed by such majority in interest of the Indemnitors with respect to such removal and appointment, together with an acknowledgement signed by the successor Securityholders’ Representative appointed in such writing that he, she or it accepts the responsibility of successor Securityholders’ Representative and agrees to perform and be bound by all of the provisions of this Agreement applicable to the Securityholders’ Representative.

12.9Expenses of the Securityholders’ Representative.  The Securityholders’ Representative Expense Fund shall be used to reimburse the out of pocket fees and expenses (including legal, accounting and other advisors’ fees and expenses, if applicable) incurred by the Securityholders’ Representative in performing all of its duties and obligations under this Agreement and the other SR Agreements.

12.10Irrevocable Appointment.  The appointment of the Securityholders’ Representative and the powers, immunities and rights to indemnification granted to the Securityholders’ Representative Group hereunder: (a) are coupled with an interest and shall be irrevocable, survive the death, incompetence, bankruptcy or liquidation of any Securityholder and shall be binding on any successor thereto, and (b) shall survive the delivery of an assignment by any Securityholder of the whole or any fraction of his, her or its interest in the Escrow Funds.

with respect to the Merger and the approval thereof by (and other corporate matters relating to the internal affairs of) the Company, which shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the CCC.  Each of the Company, Parent and Merger Sub hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consents to submit to the sole and exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in the State of Delaware (the “Chosen Courts”) for any litigation arising out of or relating to this Agreement (including the negotiation, validity or performance of this Agreement) or the Contemplated Transactions (and agrees not to commence any litigation relating thereto except in such courts), waives any objection to the laying of venue of any such litigation in the Chosen Courts and agrees not to plead or claim in any Chosen Court that such litigation brought therein has been brought in any inconvenient forum.  Each of the parties hereto agrees, (a) to the extent such party is not otherwise subject to service of process in the State of Delaware, to appoint and maintain an agent in the State of Delaware as such party’s agent for acceptance of legal process and (b) that service of process may also be made on such party by prepaid certified mail with a proof of mailing receipt validated by the United States Postal Service constituting evidence of valid service.  Service made pursuant to clauses (a) or (b) above shall have the same legal force and effect as if served upon such party personally within the State of Delaware.  Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, any and all disputes relating to the matters set forth in Section 3.5 or Article X shall be resolved in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 3.5 or Article X, respectively, if different procedures are set forth therein.  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 LITIGATION BETWEEN THE PARTIES HERETO DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF, UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OF THE CONTEMPLATED TRANSACTIONS.

13.8Amendment.  This Agreement may be amended by the parties hereto by an instrument in writing signed on behalf of each of the parties hereto at any time before or after any approval hereof by the shareholders of the Company and Merger Sub; provided, however, that after the execution of the Shareholder Written Consent, no amendment shall be made that by law requires further approval by the Shareholders without obtaining such requisite approval under the CCC; provided, further, that no amendment may be made to this Agreement after the Closing without the prior written consent of the Securityholders’ Representative.

13.9Extension; Waiver.  At any time prior to the Effective Time, the Company (in the case of Parent or Merger Sub) or Parent (in the case of the Company), and at any time after the Effective Time, the Securityholders’ Representative (in the case of Parent or the Surviving Corporation) or Parent (in the case of the Securityholders’ Representative), may, to the extent legally allowed, (a) extend the time for the performance of any of the obligations or other acts of the other parties hereto, (b) waive any inaccuracies in the representations and warranties of the other party contained herein or in any document delivered pursuant hereto and (c) waive compliance by the other party with any of the agreements or conditions contained herein.  Any agreement on the part of a party hereto to any such extension or waiver shall be valid only if set forth in a written instrument signed on behalf of the party against which such waiver or extension is to be enforced.  Waiver of any term or condition of this Agreement by a party shall not be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach or waiver of the same term or condition by such party, or a waiver of any other term or condition of this Agreement by such party.

13.10No Agreement Until Executed.  Irrespective of negotiations among the parties or the exchanging of drafts of this Agreement, this Agreement shall not constitute or be deemed to evidence a contract, agreement, arrangement or understanding among the parties hereto unless and until this Agreement is executed and delivered by the parties hereto.

13.11Conflicts and Privilege.  It is acknowledged by each of the parties hereto that each of the Securityholders’ Representative and SupplyPike has retained Goodwin Procter LLP (“Goodwin”) to act as its counsel in connection with the Contemplated Transactions.  Parent and Merger Sub hereby agree that in the event that a dispute arises after the Closing between Parent or any of its Subsidiaries, on the one hand, and the Securityholders’ Representative or any of the Securityholders or SupplyPike, on the other hand, Goodwin may represent the Securityholders’ Representative, Securityholders and/or SupplyPike in such dispute even though the interests of the Securityholders’ Representative, Securityholders and/or SupplyPike may be directly adverse to Parent or any of its Subsidiaries, and even though Goodwin may have represented the Company in a matter substantially related to such dispute, or may be handling ongoing matters for the Surviving Corporation or its Subsidiaries.  Parent and Merger Sub further agree that, as to all communications between or among Goodwin, on the one hand, and the Company, the Securityholders’ Representative, any Securityholder and/or SupplyPike, on the other hand, that relate in any way to the Contemplated Transactions or a similar transaction prior to the Closing, the attorney-client privilege and the expectation of client confidence belongs to the Securityholders’ Representative and the Securityholders, or with respect to matters under the SupplyPike Agreements, SupplyPike, and may be controlled by the Securityholders’ Representative and Securityholders, or with respect to matters under the SupplyPike Agreements, SupplyPike, and shall not pass to or be claimed by Parent, Merger Sub, the Surviving Corporation or any of its Subsidiaries.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that a dispute arises between Parent, the Surviving Corporation or any of its Subsidiaries, on the one hand, and a third party other than the Securityholders’ Representative, a Securityholder or SupplyPike, on the other hand, Parent, the Surviving Corporation or any of its Subsidiaries may assert the attorney-client privilege to prevent disclosure of confidential communications to such third party; provided, however, that neither Parent, the Surviving Corporation or its Subsidiaries may waive such privilege without the prior written consent of the Securityholders’ Representative, or with respect to matters under the SupplyPike Agreements, SupplyPike.

13.12Mutual Drafting.  The parties hereto are sophisticated and have been represented by attorneys throughout the Contemplated Transactions who have carefully negotiated the provisions hereof.  As a consequence, the parties do not intend that the presumptions of laws or rules relating to the interpretation of contracts against the drafter of any particular clause should be applied to this Agreement or any agreement or instrument executed in connection herewith, and therefore waive their effects.

13.13Specific Performance.  The parties hereto acknowledge and agree that the failure of any party hereto to perform its agreements and covenants hereunder, including such party’s failure to take all actions as are necessary on such party’s part in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement to consummate the Merger, will cause irreparable injury to the other parties, for which damages, even if available, will not be an adequate remedy.  Accordingly, subject to Section 10.7, each party hereto hereby consents to the issuance of injunctive relief by any court of competent jurisdiction to compel performance of such party’s obligations and to the

granting by any court of the remedy of specific performance of such party’s obligations hereunder.  Each party hereto accordingly agrees not to raise any objections to the availability of the equitable remedy of specific performance to prevent or restrain breaches or threatened breaches of, or to enforce compliance with, the covenants and obligations of such party under this Agreement all in accordance with the terms of this Section 13.13.  Each party hereto further agrees that no other party or any other Person shall be required to obtain, furnish or post any bond or similar instrument in connection with or as a condition to obtaining any remedy referred to in this Section 13.13, and each party irrevocably waives any right it may have to require the obtaining, furnishing or posting of any such bond or similar instrument.  If prior to the Termination Date, any party hereto brings an action to enforce specifically the performance of the terms and provisions hereof by any other party, the Termination Date shall automatically be extended by such other time period established by the court presiding over such action if the court orders such an extension.

13.14Entire Agreement; Binding Effect.  This Agreement, together with the Schedules (including the Disclosure Schedules) and Exhibits hereto, and the other Transaction Documents and any other document executed by the parties simultaneously herewith or pursuant thereto, constitutes the entire agreement of the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all other prior agreements and understandings, written and oral, among the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof, other than the Confidentiality Agreement, which shall survive the execution of this Agreement and any termination of this Agreement.  This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefits of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns and, except as expressly set forth herein, is not intended to confer upon any other Person any rights or remedies hereunder, and may be executed and transmitted by facsimile, pdf or other form of electronic transmission in two (2) or more counterparts, which together shall constitute a single agreement.  Section 8.7 and Article X concerning indemnification are intended to be for the benefit of the D&O Indemnified Parties and Parent Indemnified Parties described therein and the covenants contained therein may be enforced by such D&O Indemnified Parties and Parent Indemnified Parties, respectively.
