STOCK PURCHASE AGREEMENT
THIS STOCK PURCHASE AGREEMENT (this "Agreement"), dated as of January 23, 2018, is made by and among Vectrus Systems Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the "Purchaser"), SENTEL Corporation, a Virginia corporation (the "Acquired Company"), R&R Enterprises, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the "Seller"), and Russell T. Wright (“Seller Shareholder”). Capitalized terms used and not otherwise defined herein have the meanings set forth in Article XII below.
WHEREAS, Seller Shareholder owns all of the issued and outstanding capital stock of the Seller;
WHEREAS, the Seller owns all of the issued and outstanding capital stock of the Acquired Company (the "Shares"); and
WHEREAS, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Purchaser desires to purchase from the Seller, and the Seller desires to sell to the Purchaser, all of the Shares in exchange for the consideration set forth herein.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants contained herein and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties agree as follows:
ARTICLE I
PURCHASE AND SALE OF THE SHARES
1.01    Basic Transaction. On and subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, at the Closing, the Purchaser agrees to purchase from the Seller, and the Seller agrees to sell to the Purchaser, all of the Shares owned by the Seller for the consideration specified below in this Article I.
1.02    Purchase and Sale of Shares.
(a)    Estimated Purchase Price. The "Estimated Purchase Price" means (i) $36,000,000 (the "Base Value"), plus (ii) the amount, if any, by which Estimated Net Working Capital exceeds Target Working Capital, minus (iii) the amount, if any, by which Target Working Capital exceeds Estimated Net Working Capital, plus (iv) the total amount of Estimated Cash on Hand, minus (v) the total amount of Estimated Indebtedness, minus (vi) the Estimated Company Transaction Expenses.
(b)    Purchase and Sale of Shares. At the Closing, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in this Agreement, the Seller shall sell, assign, transfer and convey to the Purchaser, and the Purchaser shall purchase and acquire from the Seller, all of the Shares for and in consideration of the Estimated Purchase Price (less the Indemnity Escrow Amount).
1.03    The Closing. The closing of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (the "Closing") shall take place by conference call and electronic (i.e., email/pdf) correspondence on the second business day following full satisfaction or due waiver of all of the closing conditions set forth in Article II hereof (other than those to be satisfied at the Closing, but subject to the satisfaction of those conditions) or on such other date as is mutually agreeable to the Purchaser and the Seller. The date of the Closing is referred to herein as the "Closing Date."




1.04    The Closing Transactions. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, the parties shall consummate the following transactions on the Closing Date:
(a)    the Seller shall deliver or cause to be delivered to the Purchaser:
(i)    all of the stock certificates evidencing the Shares, duly endorsed for transfer or accompanied by duly executed stock powers or an express indemnity in the Agreed Form in the case of any certificate found to be missing;
(ii)    a letter of resignation in the Agreed Form from Seller Shareholder as an officer and director of any Member of the Company Group;
(iii)    evidence that all intercompany liabilities between the Company Group, on one hand, and the Seller and its Affiliates and their respective family members, on the other hand, have been settled; and
(iv)    a copy of the resolutions of the board of directors of the Acquired Company approving the transactions contemplated hereby.
(b)    the Purchaser shall deliver to the Seller the Estimated Purchase Price less the Indemnity Escrow Amount by wire transfer of immediately available funds to the account(s) designated by the Seller (which account(s) shall be designated by the Seller to the Purchaser in writing at least two business days before the Closing Date);
(c)    the Acquired Company shall deliver to the Purchaser appropriate payoff letters from the holders of Indebtedness set forth on the Indebtedness Payoff Schedule attached hereto;
(d)    the Purchaser shall repay, or cause to be repaid, on behalf of the Company Group and pursuant to the payoff letters delivered pursuant to Section 1.04(c), all amounts necessary to discharge fully the then outstanding balance of the Indebtedness set forth on the Indebtedness Payoff Schedule, by wire transfer of immediately available funds to the account(s) designated by the holders of such Indebtedness;
(e)    the Purchaser shall pay on behalf of the Company Group the Estimated Company Transaction Expenses;
(f)    the Purchaser shall deliver the Indemnity Escrow Amount by wire transfer of immediately available funds to the Escrow Agent;
(g)    the Company Group shall provide evidence that the Acquired Company has taken such actions, approved by the Purchaser (such approval not to be unreasonably withheld), as required by Treasury Regulation § 1.409A-3(j)(4)(ix)(B) to provide for (a) termination of the Sentel Corporation Deferred Compensation Plan and any other plan required to be aggregate with such plan under Code Section 409A (collectively, “SENTEL DCPs”); (b) removal of all special post-change in control provisions from the SENTEL DCPs; and (c) payment of all benefits due under the SENTEL DCPs on or as soon as practical after the Closing Date;
(h)    the Acquired Company shall pay to the employees, former employees, and independent consultants of the Members of the Company Group (i) all annual bonuses and other bonuses relating to periods ending on the Closing Date and (ii) all bonuses and other payments,

2





including payments under Management Incentive Interest Award Agreements, relating to the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement; and
(i)    the Purchaser and the Seller shall make such other deliveries as are required by Article II hereof.
1.05    Purchase Price Adjustments.
(a)    At least two business days prior to the Closing Date, the Acquired Company shall deliver to the Purchaser a good faith estimate of Net Working Capital (the "Estimated Net Working Capital"), Cash on Hand (the "Estimated Cash on Hand"), Indebtedness (the "Estimated Indebtedness"), and Company Transaction Expenses (the “Estimated Company Transaction Expenses”) and the resulting calculation of the Estimated Purchase Price.
(b)    As promptly as possible, but in any event within sixty days after the Closing Date, the Purchaser will deliver to the Seller a statement showing the Purchaser's calculation of Net Working Capital, Cash on Hand, Indebtedness, and Company Transaction Expenses (the "Preliminary Closing Statement"). The Preliminary Closing Statement shall be prepared in accordance with GAAP or in accordance with this Agreement if different from GAAP, applied on a basis consistent with the methods, policies, practices, procedures, classifications and estimation techniques used in the preparation of the Audited Financial Statements. The parties agree that the purpose of preparing the Preliminary Closing Statement and determining Net Working Capital, Cash on Hand, Indebtedness, and Company Transaction Expenses and the related purchase price adjustments contemplated by this Section 1.05(b) is to measure changes in Net Working Capital and the levels of Cash on Hand, Indebtedness, and Company Transaction Expenses as of Closing, and such processes are not intended to permit the introduction of different judgments, accounting methods, policies, principles, practices, procedures, classifications or estimation methodologies as those used in the preparation of the Audited Financial Statements. After delivery of the Preliminary Closing Statement, the Purchaser shall give the Seller and its accountants reasonable access to review the Purchaser's and the Company Group's books and records and work papers related to the preparation of the Preliminary Closing Statement. The Seller and its accountants may make inquiries of the Purchaser and its Subsidiaries (including the Company Group) and their respective accountants regarding questions concerning or disagreements with the Preliminary Closing Statement arising in the course of its review thereof, and the Purchaser shall, and shall cause its Subsidiaries to, cause any such accountants to cooperate with and promptly respond to such inquiries. If the Seller has any objections to the Preliminary Closing Statement, the Seller shall deliver to the Purchaser a statement setting forth its objections thereto (an "Objections Statement"). If an Objections Statement is not delivered to the Purchaser within thirty days after delivery of the Preliminary Closing Statement, the Preliminary Closing Statement shall be final, binding and non-appealable. The Seller and the Purchaser shall negotiate in good faith to resolve any such objections, but if they do not reach a final resolution within thirty days after the delivery of the Objections Statement, the Seller and the Purchaser shall submit such dispute to KPMG LLP or such other mutually acceptable dispute resolution firm (the "Dispute Resolution Firm"). Any further submissions to the Dispute Resolution Firm must be written and delivered to each party to the dispute. The Dispute Resolution Firm shall consider only those items and amounts which are identified in the Objections Statement as being items which the Seller and the Purchaser are unable to resolve. The Dispute Resolution Firm's determination will be based solely on the definitions of Net Working Capital, Cash on Hand, Indebtedness, and Company Transaction Expenses, as applicable, contained in this Agreement. The Seller and the Purchaser shall use their commercially reasonable efforts to cause the Dispute Resolution Firm to resolve all

3





disagreements as soon as practicable and in any event within forty-five days after the submission of any dispute. Further, the Dispute Resolution Firm's determination shall be based solely on the submissions by the Purchaser and the Seller which are in accordance with the terms and procedures set forth in this Agreement, and not on the basis of an independent review. The resolution of the dispute by the Dispute Resolution Firm shall be final, binding and non-appealable. The costs and expenses of the Dispute Resolution Firm shall be allocated based upon the percentage which the portion of the contested amount not awarded to each party bears to the amount actually contested by such party in the presentation to the Dispute Resolution Firm; however, the Seller and the Purchaser shall equally advance any costs and expenses of the Dispute Resolution Firm that are payable prior to rendering a determination. For example, if the Seller submits an Objections Statement for $1,000, and if the Purchaser contests only $500 of the amount claimed by the Seller, and if the Dispute Resolution Firm ultimately resolves the dispute by awarding the Seller $300 of the $500 contested, then the costs and expenses of the Dispute Resolution Firm will be allocated 60% (i.e., 300/500) to the Purchaser and 40% (i.e., 200/500) to the Seller.
(c)    Post-Closing Adjustment.
(i)    If the Final Purchase Price is greater than the Estimated Purchase Price, the Purchaser shall promptly (but in any event within five business days after the determination of the Final Purchase Price) deliver to the Seller the amount of such excess, by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account or accounts designated by the Seller.
(ii)    If the Final Purchase Price is less than the Estimated Purchase Price, the Seller shall promptly (but in any event within five business days after the determination of the Final Purchase Price) deliver to the Purchaser the amount of such shortfall, by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account designated by the Seller.
1.06    Withholding Rights. The Purchaser or its designee and the Company Group shall be entitled to withhold and deduct from the consideration otherwise payable pursuant to this Agreement such amounts as such Person is required to deduct and withhold with respect to the making of such payment under the Code or any provision of state, local or foreign Tax law; provided that if the Purchaser, the Acquired Company or any of their respective Subsidiaries determines that an amount is required to be deducted and withheld, at least two business days prior to the date the applicable payment is scheduled to be made, the Purchaser shall provide the Seller with written notice of the intent to deduct and withhold, which shall include a copy of the calculation of the amount to be deducted and withheld and any applicable provision of state, local or foreign Tax law pursuant to which such deduction and withholding is required and provide the recipient of such payment a reasonable opportunity for such recipient to provide forms or other evidence that would exempt such amounts from withholding. To the extent that amounts are so withheld and paid over to the appropriate Tax authority, such amounts shall be treated for all purposes of this Agreement as having been paid to the Person in respect of which such deduction and withholding were made.

(b)    Each of the Acquired Company’s Subsidiaries is qualified to do business in every jurisdiction in which its ownership of property or the conduct of its businesses as now conducted requires it to qualify, except in each such case where the failure to hold such authorizations, licenses and Permits or to be so qualified would not be material to the Business.
3.03    Authorization; No Breach; Valid and Binding Agreement. The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by the Acquired Company and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby have been duly and validly authorized by all requisite corporate action, and no other corporate proceedings on its part are necessary to authorize the execution, delivery or performance of this Agreement.

Prior to the Closing, the Purchaser and the Purchaser's Representatives shall contact and communicate with the employees, customers and suppliers of the Company Group in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby only after prior consultation with and written approval of the Seller, Seller Shareholder, or Acquired Company.
8.05    Employment and Benefit Arrangements. From and after the Closing and solely to the extent disclosed or made available to the Purchaser in the Intralinks data site prior to the Closing, the Purchaser shall cause the Company Group to honor all employment, consulting, retirement and other compensation and benefit plans, arrangements and agreements to which the Company Group is a party with respect to employees of the Company Group, as such plans, arrangements and agreements are in effect on the date hereof. The Purchaser shall cause the Company Group to provide severance and termination arrangements and agreements to which the Company Group is a party with respect to the employees of the Company Group; provided that such arrangements and agreement do not require the payment of more than two weeks’ salary for each full year of employment with the Company Group. This Section 8.05 shall not be deemed to prohibit the Purchaser or the Company Group from amending, modifying, replacing, or terminating the plans, arrangements, or agreements referred to in the first two sentences of this Section 8.05 in accordance with their terms and applicable Law, subject to the Purchaser’s obligations under this Section 8.05 provided, however, that until December 31, 2018, Purchaser shall cause the Company and its Subsidiary to offer employees who are terminated without cause, severance of two weeks salary (or wages) for each full year of employment with the Company Group. The Purchaser shall take all actions required so that employees of the Company Group as of the Closing shall receive service credit for periods of employment with the

28





Company Group for eligibility and vesting purposes and for purposes of determining future vacation accruals and severance amounts under any employee benefit plans and arrangements in which they participate following the Closing. Until December 31, 2018, the Purchaser shall cause the Company Group to maintain the welfare benefit plan coverage provided prior to the Closing in all material respects. This Section 8.05 shall survive the Closing, and shall be binding on all successors and assigns of the Purchaser and the Company Group. Until December 31, 2018, the Purchaser shall take all actions required so that the employees of the Company Group (determined as of the Closing) (i) receive base compensation and bonus opportunities that are no less favorable individually and in the aggregate than that provided immediately prior to the Closing, (ii) receive benefits that, in the aggregate, are substantially comparable to those benefits provided to such employees immediately prior to the Closing, and (iii) who involuntarily terminate employment from the Company Group during such period receive severance compensation and benefits that are no less favorable than those which would have been payable as a result of involuntary termination of employment under the severance plans, policies, agreements or arrangements that applied to such employees immediately prior to the Closing to the extent such compensation, bonus opportunities, benefits, severance plans, policies, agreements, or arrangements under (i), (ii), and (iii) have been disclosed or made available to the Purchaser in the Intralinks data site prior to the Closing. To the extent this Section 8.05 conflicts with an employment letter or retention letter, the employment letter or retention letter governs and controls.
8.06    Employee Layoffs. Assuming the accuracy of the representations and warranties in Sections 3.13(i) and 3.17(j), for a period of ninety days after the Closing Date, neither the Purchaser nor the Acquired Company shall, and neither shall permit any Member of the Company Group to, terminate employees of the Company Group, except in full compliance with all requirements of the WARN Act or any similar requirements under local or foreign Law. The Purchaser and the Acquired Company shall, and shall cause the Members of the Company Group to, comply with any and all applicable notice or filing requirements under the WARN Act or any similar requirements under local or foreign Law, and will indemnify and hold harmless the Seller from any liabilities, losses, damages, obligations, costs or expenses, arising as a result of or related to, in whole or in part, the Purchaser's or the Acquired Company's actions or omissions occurring on or after the Closing Date.
8.07    Corporate Headquarters Lease. Subsequent to Closing, Purchaser and the Company Group shall use their reasonable best efforts to have the landlord for the Corporate Headquarters Lease agree to the assignment of such lease from the Seller to the Purchaser and the Acquired Company and the release of the Seller from any ongoing obligations thereunder. Subsequent to Closing, the Purchaser shall pay or cause the Acquired Company to pay all lease and other payments under the Corporate Headquarters Lease in accordance with the terms of the Corporate Headquarters Lease and the Purchaser and the Acquired Company shall comply with all the terms, conditions and obligations of the Corporate Headquarters Lease as if it was the tenant thereunder. In the event that within 30 days of the date hereof the Purchaser and the Company Group have not had the Corporate Headquarters Lease assigned as contemplated herein (and the Seller released from any ongoing obligations thereunder) at the Seller’s request, the Purchaser and the Acquired Company, as subtenants, will enter into a sublease with the Seller that fully incorporates all of the terms, conditions and obligations of the Corporate Headquarters Lease.
ARTICLE IX    

INDEMNIFICATION
9.01    Survival of Representations, Warranties, Covenants, Agreements and Other Provisions. Except to the extent a different period is expressly set forth herein, the representations, warranties, covenants (other than with respect to the covenants contained in Section 11.01, which shall survive until the obligations

29





set forth therein are fully performed in accordance with the terms thereof, or, if earlier, the date that is thirty (30) days after the expiration of the applicable statute of limitations), agreements and other provisions in this Agreement shall survive the Closing and shall terminate on the date which is twelve months after the Closing Date provided, however, that the representations and warranties of the Acquired Company set forth in Section 3.01(a) (Organization and Power), Section 3.02(a) (Subsidiaries), Section 3.03 (Authorization; No Breach; Valid and Binding Agreement), Section 3.04 (Capital Stock), Section 3.08 (Tax Matters), Section 3.14 (Employee Benefit Plans), and Section 3.20 (Broker’s Fees) (collectively, the “Fundamental Representations”) shall survive the execution and delivery of this Agreement and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby and shall continue in full force and effect for a period thereafter ending on the sixth (6th) anniversary of the Closing Date (the twelve month or six year anniversary, the "Survival Period Termination Date"). No Person shall be liable for any claim for indemnification under this Article IX unless written notice specifying in reasonable detail the facts, circumstances and nature of the claim for indemnification is delivered by the Person seeking indemnification to the Person from whom indemnification is sought prior to the Survival Period Termination Date, in which case the representation, warranty, covenant or agreement which is the subject of such claim shall survive, only to the extent of such claim, until such claim is resolved.
9.02    Indemnification from the Indemnity Escrow Account for the Benefit of the Purchaser.
(a)    From and after the Closing (but subject to the provisions of this Article IX), the Seller and Seller Shareholder shall, jointly and severally, indemnify the Purchaser in respect of any Loss suffered or incurred by the Purchaser or any of its Affiliates, officers, directors, employees or agents (each a "Purchaser Indemnified Party" and collectively, the "Purchaser Indemnified Parties") resulting from or arising out of (i) the breach or inaccuracy of any representation or warranty made by the Acquired Company in Article III (Representations and Warranties of the Acquired Company), by the Seller in Article IV (Representation and Warranties of the Seller), or the Seller Shareholder in Article V (Representations and Warranties of the Seller Shareholder); or (ii) the breach by the Seller or the Acquired Company of any covenant or agreement to be performed by it under this Agreement.
(b)    No Purchaser Indemnified Party shall be entitled to recover for an indemnification claim under Section 9.02(a)(i), other than for breaches of or inaccuracies with respect to Fundamental Representations, unless and until the aggregate amount of Losses that would otherwise be payable hereunder exceeds on a cumulative basis an amount equal to $250,000 (the "Deductible"), and then only to the extent such Losses exceed the Deductible.  
(c)    Amounts available in the Indemnity Escrow Account shall be the sole source of recourse against the Seller or Seller Shareholder for Losses suffered or incurred by Purchaser Indemnified Parties to the extent arising from any nonfulfillment or breach of any representation or warranty other than a Fundamental Representation. The maximum aggregate liability of Seller or the Seller Shareholder for Losses related to indemnification claims hereunder, including claims arising from any nonfulfillment or breach of any Fundamental Representation, shall not exceed the Final Purchase Price.
(d)    The Purchaser Indemnified Parties shall have no right to indemnification hereunder with respect to any Loss to the extent such Loss is included in the calculation of any component of Final Purchase Price or if the Purchaser shall have received a reduction in the Final Closing Statement on account of any matter forming the basis for such Loss.

30





(e)    All payments pursuant to this Article IX shall be treated by the parties as an adjustment to the proceeds payable to the Seller pursuant to Section 1.02 hereof.
(f)    (i) Except for the Purchaser pursuant to the terms hereof, no Person (including the Seller or any of its respective Affiliates) shall have any obligation to fund the Indemnity Escrow Account, (ii) except for the amount in respect of which the Purchaser shall have, prior to the Survival Period Termination Date, previously made a claim pursuant to the procedures set forth in this Article IX and for which the obligations to indemnify, if any, shall not have been satisfied from the Indemnity Escrow Amount (the "Outstanding Escrow Claims"), title and all rights to all funds in the Indemnity Escrow Account shall automatically transfer to the Seller on the Survival Period Termination Date, and (iii) the Purchaser shall take all actions reasonably necessary to cause the Escrow Agent to release all funds in the Indemnity Escrow Account, less the amount of the Outstanding Escrow Claims, to the Seller on the business day following the twelve-month Survival Period Termination Date. As soon as the Outstanding Escrow Claims are resolved pursuant to the procedures set forth in this Article IX, the Purchaser shall cause the Escrow Agent to release any remaining cash held by the Escrow Agent pursuant to the terms of the Escrow Agreement to the Seller.
9.03    Indemnification by the Purchaser for the Benefit of the Seller. From and after the Closing (but subject to the provisions of this Article IX), the Seller shall be entitled to assert, as its sole and exclusive remedy for any action relating (directly or indirectly) to this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby and only in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, claims against the Purchaser in respect of any Loss suffered or incurred by the Seller, or any of its respective Affiliates, officers, directors, employees or agents ("Seller Indemnified Parties") to the extent arising from any nonfulfillment or breach of any representation, warranty, covenant, agreement or other provision set forth herein or in any or certificate delivered hereunder by the Purchaser or, following the Closing, by the Acquired Company.
9.04    Mitigation. Each Person entitled to indemnification hereunder shall take commercially reasonable steps to mitigate all Losses, costs and expenses as required by applicable Law.
9.05    Defense of Third Party Claims. Any Person making a claim for indemnification under Section 9.02 or Section 9.03 (an "Indemnitee") shall notify the indemnifying party (an "Indemnitor") of the claim in writing promptly after receiving written notice of any action, lawsuit, proceeding, investigation or other claim against it (if by a third party), describing the claim, the amount thereof (if known and quantifiable) and the basis therefor. Any Indemnitor shall, subject to the right of any insurer under a representation and warranty insurance policy, be entitled to participate in the defense of such action, lawsuit, proceeding, investigation or other claim giving rise to an Indemnitee's claim for indemnification at such Indemnitor's expense and, subject to the right of any insurer under a representation and warranty insurance policy, at such Indemnitor's option, shall be entitled to assume the defense thereof by appointing a reputable counsel to be the lead counsel in connection with such defense; provided that such Indemnitor shall continue to be entitled to assert any limitation on any claims contained herein; provided further that the Indemnitee shall be entitled to participate in the defense of such claim and to employ counsel of its choice for such purpose; provided, however, that the fees and expenses of such separate counsel shall be borne by the Indemnitee. If the Indemnitor shall control the defense of any such claim, the Indemnitor shall, subject to the right of any insurer under a representation and warranty insurance policy, be entitled to settle such claim; provided that the Indemnitor shall obtain the prior written consent of the Indemnitee (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed) before entering into any settlement of a claim or ceasing to defend such claim if, pursuant to or as a result of such settlement or cessation, injunctive or other equitable relief will be imposed against the Indemnitee or if such settlement does not expressly and unconditionally release the Indemnitee from all liabilities and obligations with respect to such claim. If the Indemnitor assumes the

31





defense of and/or settles or compromises any third party claim as provided herein and the Deductible applies to such claim and has not been met with respect to the Indemnitor's liability under Section 9.02, then (1) until such time as the Deductible has been met, the Indemnitee will promptly reimburse the Indemnitor for any out-of-pocket costs and expenses (including attorney's fees) incurred in the assumption of such defense and (2) if the settlement or compromise of such third party claim is equal to or less than the remaining Deductible at such time (after taking into account any reimbursements pursuant to clause (1) above), then within five business days after the settlement or compromise of such claim, the Indemnitee shall pay to the Indemnitor the aggregate amount of the third party claim settled or compromised up to the amount of the then remaining Deductible. In no event will an Indemnitee consent to the entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement with respect to any third party claim for which an Indemnitee is seeking indemnification hereunder without the prior written consent of the Indemnitor.
9.06    Determination of Loss Amount.
(a)    The amount of any Loss subject to indemnification under Section 9.02 or Section 9.03 shall be calculated net of any insurance proceeds (net of direct collection expenses) or any indemnity, contribution or other similar payment received by the Indemnitee or its Affiliates from any third party with respect thereto. The Indemnitee shall seek full recovery under all insurance policies covering any Loss to the same extent as they would if such Loss were not subject to indemnification hereunder; provided that seeking such coverage shall not be a condition to Indemnitee making a claim for indemnification under this Agreement. In the event that an insurance or other recovery is made by any Indemnitee with respect to any Loss for which any such Person has been indemnified hereunder, then a refund equal to the aggregate amount of the recovery shall be made promptly to the Indemnitor. To the extent allowed under the terms of the applicable insurance policies, the Indemnitors shall be subrogated to all rights of the Indemnitees and their Affiliates in respect of any Losses indemnified by the Indemnitors.
(b)    The Purchaser Indemnified Parties shall have no right to indemnification hereunder with respect to any Loss to the extent such Loss is attributable to (i) Taxes that result from any breach of the covenant in Section 11.01(d); (ii) Taxes attributable to any transaction or action outside of the Ordinary Course of Business taken, caused or requested by the Purchaser or any of its Affiliates that occur on or after the Closing; (iii) Transfer Taxes that are the responsibility of Purchaser pursuant to Section 11.01(c), or (iv) the unavailability in any taxable period (or portion thereof) beginning after the Closing Date of any Tax attribute of the Acquired Company or any of its Subsidiaries.
9.07    Manner of Payment. Any indemnification of the Seller Indemnified Parties pursuant to this Article IX shall be effected by wire transfer of immediately available funds from the Purchaser to an account designated by the Indemnitee within ten days after the determination thereof.
9.08    Acknowledgment; No Reliance.
(a)    The representations and warranties of the Acquired Company expressly set forth in Article III of this Agreement and the representations and warranties of the Seller expressly set forth in Article V of this Agreement constitute the sole and exclusive representations and warranties made to the Purchaser, its Affiliates or any other Person in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby, and the Purchaser, on its own behalf and on behalf of its Affiliates, acknowledges and agrees that any other representations and warranties of any kind or nature, express or implied (including any relating to the future or historical financial condition or position, results of operations, assets or liabilities of the Company Group, or the quality or condition of the Company Group's assets), are specifically disclaimed by the Seller and

32





the Acquired Company and shall not form the basis of any claim against the Seller, its members, or any of their respective Affiliates, the Indemnity Escrow Account, any other Person or otherwise. Without limiting the foregoing, the Purchaser, on its own behalf and on behalf of its Affiliates, acknowledges and agrees that neither the Purchaser nor any of its Affiliates has relied on any representations or warranties whatsoever, whether express or implied, other than the representations and warranties of the Acquired Company expressly set forth in Article III of this Agreement and the representations and warranties of the Seller expressly set forth in Article IV of this Agreement. In furtherance of the foregoing, the Purchaser acknowledges, on its own behalf and on behalf of its Affiliates, that the Purchaser and its Affiliates have conducted, to their respective satisfactions, an independent investigation of the financial condition and position, results of operations, assets, liabilities, properties and projected operations of the Company Group and, in making its determination to proceed with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, the Purchaser and its Affiliates have relied only on the results of its own independent investigation and the representations and warranties of the Acquired Company expressly set forth in Article III of this Agreement and the representations and warranties of the Seller expressly set forth in Article IV of this Agreement. In connection with the Purchaser's and its Affiliates' investigation of the Company Group, the Purchaser and its Affiliates have received certain projections, including projected statements of operating revenues and income from operations of the Company Group, and certain business plan information. The Purchaser acknowledges, on its own behalf and on behalf of its Affiliates, that there are uncertainties inherent in attempting to make such estimates, projections and other forecasts and plans, that the Purchaser and its Affiliates are familiar with such uncertainties and that the Purchaser and its Affiliates are taking full responsibility for making their own evaluation of the adequacy and accuracy of all estimates, projections and other forecasts and plans so furnished to them, including the reasonableness of the assumptions underlying such estimates, projections and forecasts. Accordingly, the Purchaser, on its own behalf and on behalf of its Affiliates, hereby acknowledges that none of the Seller, the Seller Shareholder, any Member of the Company Group or any other Person is making any representation or warranty with respect to such estimates, projections and other forecasts and plans, including the reasonableness of the assumptions underlying such estimates, projections and forecasts, and that neither the Purchaser nor any of its Affiliates has relied on any such estimates, projections or other forecasts or plans. The Purchaser further agrees, on its own behalf and on behalf of its Affiliates, that (i) none of the Seller, the Acquired Company or any other Person will have or be subject to any liability to the Purchaser, its Affiliates or any other Person resulting from the distribution to the Purchaser or any other Person, or the Purchaser's use of, any such information, including any information, document or material made available to the Purchaser or any other Person in certain "data rooms," management presentations or any other form in expectation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, and (ii) the Purchaser and such other Persons have not relied on any such information.
Each party acknowledges and agrees that, from and after the Closing (except for actions seeking equitable relief pursuant to Section 13.13 and disputes under Sections 1.05 or 11.01(h), which disputes will be resolved in accordance with the dispute mechanism set forth in such Sections), its sole and exclusive remedy with respect to any and all rights, claims and causes of action it may have against any other party, any member of the Seller or any of their respective Affiliates relating to the operation of the Company Group or its businesses, or resulting from or relating to the subject matter of this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby, whether arising under or based upon any law or otherwise, shall be pursuant to the indemnification and escrow recovery provisions set forth in this Article IX.
9.09    Other Indemnification Matters. For purposes of determining whether there has been any breach or inaccuracy of a representation or warranty, and for purposes of determining the amount of Losses resulting therefrom, all qualifications or exceptions in any representation or warranty relating to or referring

33





to the terms “material,” “materiality,” “in all material respects,” “material adverse effect,” “Material Adverse Effect” or any similar term or phrase shall be disregarded, it being the understanding of the Parties that for purposes of determining liability under this ARTICLE IX, the representations and warranties of the Parties contained in this Agreement shall be read as if such terms and phrases were not included; provided, that the foregoing shall not apply in determining whether Schedules 3.09(a), 3.10(b)(1), 3.13(b), or 3.17(a) correctly list contracts, licenses, obligations or similar items based on the “materiality” of such items.

Seller shall satisfy (or cause to be satisfied) such Taxes if and to the extent such Taxes are not covered by the Representation and Warranty insurance policy and the Indemnity Escrow Account is not adequate to cover such Taxes.

If Purchaser is required under Section 11.01(b) to file a Tax Return that involves Pre-Closing Taxes, then no later than the later of the date that is (i) five Business Days after the date that Seller receives from Purchaser a copy of such Tax Return and written notice that such payment is or was due and (ii) five Business Days before the due date (including extensions) of any such Tax Return, then an amount equal to the amount of Taxes shown due on such Tax Return for which Seller is obligated with respect to such Tax Return.

The Seller agrees to reasonably cooperate with the Purchaser in the filing of any returns with respect to the Transfer Taxes, including by promptly supplying any information in its possession that is reasonably necessary to complete such returns. The Purchaser agrees that it will pay all such Transfer Taxes and the Purchaser will be entitled to be reimbursed from the Escrow for one-half of the amount of such Transfer Taxes.
(d)    Pre-Closing Tax Matters. Without the prior consent of the Seller, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, delayed, after the Closing, the Purchaser and its Affiliates shall not, and the Purchaser and its Affiliates shall not permit any Member of the Company Group to, (a) other than Tax Returns that are filed by Purchaser pursuant to Section 11.01(a), file or amend or otherwise modify any Tax Return relating to a Pre-Closing Tax Period, (b) after the date on which any Tax Return filed pursuant to Section11.01(a) is filed, amend or otherwise modify any such Tax Return unless required by applicable Law, (c) make or change any Tax election or accounting method or practice with respect to, or that has retroactive effect to, any Pre-Closing Tax Period, or (d) make or initiate any voluntary contact with a Governmental Authority regarding Taxes in any Pre-Closing Tax Period.

(f)    Records. At the request of the Seller, the Purchaser shall deliver to the Seller copies of all Tax Returns relating to the tax periods (or portions thereof) ending on or prior to the Closing prepared in accordance with Section 11.01(a).

(ii)    Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Seller shall have the sole right in its discretion to elect to represent the interests of the Company Group

35





in any Tax Proceeding with respect to Tax periods that end on or before the Closing Date; provided, however, that for Tax Proceedings that do not involve Pass-through Tax Returns, Seller shall keep Purchaser reasonably informed with respect to any such Tax Proceeding and Seller shall not settle or compromise any such Tax Proceeding without the prior written consent of Purchaser, which it shall not unreasonably withhold, condition, or delay.
(iii)     Purchaser shall have the right to control any Tax Proceeding for any Straddle Period of the Company; provided, that with respect to any such Tax Proceeding, (A) Purchaser shall keep Seller reasonably informed with respect to such Tax Proceeding, (B) Purchaser shall consult with Seller before taking any significant action in connection with such Tax Proceeding and (C) Purchaser shall not settle or compromise any such Tax Proceeding without the prior written consent of Seller, which it shall not unreasonably withhold, condition, or delay.

(h)    Cooperation. The Purchaser, each Member of the Company Group and the Seller shall cooperate fully, as and to the extent reasonably requested by any other party, in connection with the preparation and the filing of Tax Returns pursuant to this Section 11.01 and any audit, litigation or other proceeding with respect to Taxes and the computation and verification of any amounts paid or payable under this Section 11.01 (including any supporting work papers, schedules and documents). Such cooperation shall include the retention and (upon any other party's request) provision of records and information which are reasonably relevant to any such audit, litigation or other proceeding and making employees available on a mutually convenient basis to provide additional information and explanation of any material provided hereunder. The Purchaser shall, and shall cause the Company Group to, retain all books and records with respect to Tax matters pertinent to the Company Group relating to any tax periods and shall abide by all record retention agreements entered into with any Taxing authority, and shall give the Seller reasonable written notice prior to transferring, destroying or discarding any such books and records prior to the expiration of the applicable statute of limitations for that tax period, and if the Seller so requests, the Purchaser shall, and shall cause the Company Group to, allow the Seller to take possession of such books and records rather than destroying or discarding such books and records.
(i)    Tax Refunds. The Seller shall be entitled to any Tax refunds (or credits in lieu of refunds) that are received by the Purchaser or any Member of the Company Group attributable to Taxes paid by any Member of the Company Group with respect to any Pre-Closing Tax Period or Taxes taken into account in the determination of Final Purchase Price (or with respect to which Purchaser received a reduction in the Final Closing Statement) (unless the refund was also taken into account in connection with such determination). The Purchaser shall pay over to the Seller any such refund (or credit in lieu of refund) within 10 business days after receipt or entitlement to such refund (or credit in lieu of such refund). After the Closing, the Purchaser shall cause the Company Group to use its commercially reasonable efforts to claim any Tax refund. To the extent permitted by applicable law, the Purchaser shall request a refund (rather than a credit in lieu of refund) with respect to all Pre-Closing Tax Periods.

36





(j)    Closing of Tax Period. The parties shall, to the extent permitted or required under applicable law, treat the Closing Date as the last day of the taxable period of the Company Group for all Tax purposes.
(k)    Straddle Periods. To the extent it is necessary for purposes of this Agreement to determine the allocation of Taxes of the Company Group among a Straddle Period, (i) the amount of any real, personal and intangible property Taxes or similar ad valorem Taxes (“Property Taxes”) that relates to the Pre-Closing Tax Period shall be deemed to be the amount of such Tax for the entire Straddle Period multiplied by a fraction the numerator of which is the number of days in the portion of the Straddle Period ending on the Closing Date and the denominator of which is the number of days in the entire Straddle Period, and (ii) the amount of any other Taxes of the Company Group shall be allocated between the Pre-Closing Tax Period and the Post-Closing Tax Period based on an interim closing of the books as of the close of business on the Closing Date.
(l)    S Corporation Further Assurances. If the Acquired Company’s status as a qualified S Corporation subsidiary is found to be invalid or to have terminated prior to the Closing (either directly or because Seller’s S Corporation election is determined to be invalid or to have inadvertently terminated prior to Closing), Purchaser, Seller and Seller Shareholder shall use their reasonable best efforts to obtain from the Internal Revenue Service a waiver of the invalidity or terminating event on the grounds of inadvertency, including taking such steps, and making such adjustments, in each case as are reasonable and may be reasonably required by the Internal Revenue Service to issue such waiver.
(m)    The Final Purchase Price, liabilities of Seller and other relevant items shall be allocated among the assets of the Acquired Company in accordance with Section 1060 of the Code and any comparable provisions of state, local or foreign law, as appropriate. Such allocation shall be set forth on a schedule prepared by Purchaser and delivered to Seller (along with any internal or outside valuation or other information used by Purchaser in connection with or otherwise relevant to the preparation of the schedule) within 120 days after the determination of the Net Working Capital pursuant to Section 1.05. Seller shall have 30 days following delivery of the allocation schedule to give written notice to Purchaser that Seller disputes the allocation set forth on such schedule (which notice shall contain Seller’s reasons for objecting to the allocation set forth on such schedule). If Seller does not respond to Purchaser within 30 days following delivery of the allocation schedule, Seller shall be deemed to have objected to the allocation set forth on such schedule. If Seller timely provides written notice to Purchaser of Seller’s disagreement with such schedule (or is deemed to have objected to such schedule) and the parties are unable to resolve the dispute within 20 days, then Seller and Purchaser shall utilize their own separate versions of the allocation for all purposes. The allocation, if agreed upon by the parties, shall be the final allocation for purposes of Section 1060 of the Code (the “Allocation”). If agreed, none of the parties shall take any position on any Tax Return inconsistent with the Allocation and each of the parties shall reflect the Allocation where relevant in all Tax filings, including IRS Form 8594.
11.02    Further Assurances. From time to time, as and when requested by any other party and at such other party's expense, each party shall execute and deliver, or cause to be executed and delivered, all such documents and instruments and shall take, or cause to be taken, all such further or other actions as such requesting party may reasonably deem necessary or desirable to evidence and effectuate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

37

Accordingly, the Purchaser shall not, and shall cause each of its Subsidiaries (including, after Closing, the Company Group) not to, (x) assert any attorney-client privilege, other evidentiary privilege or expectation of client confidence with respect to any Attorney-Client Communication, except in the event of a post-Closing dispute with a Person that is not the Seller or any of the Seller's Affiliates, or (y) take any action which could cause any Attorney-Client Communication to cease being a confidential communication or to otherwise lose protection under the attorney-client privilege or any other evidentiary privilege, including waiving such protection in any dispute with a Person that is not the Seller or any of the Seller's Affiliates.

13.20    Tax Withholding on Compensatory Payments. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, to the extent that an amount is paid or is payable to the Seller pursuant to this Agreement for the benefit of any service provider of the Company Group and such amount may be subject to payroll and employment tax withholding under applicable law (e.g., such amounts are payable by the Seller to an employee of the Company Group and those amount are treated as "wages" under Code Sections 3121, 3306, or 3402), then, at the written request and direction of the Seller, the Purchaser shall, or shall cause the applicable Member of the Company Group to, pay such amounts through the applicable payroll system of the Purchaser or the applicable Member of the Company Group and make all applicable employment and payroll tax withholding on such amounts in accordance with applicable law; provided that, if such amount has already been paid to the Seller, then the Seller agrees to promptly deliver such amount to an account designated by the Purchaser.

(b)    During the period beginning immediately following the Closing and ending on the fifth (5th) anniversary of the Closing, neither Seller nor Seller Shareholder shall control, manage, operate, be employed or engaged by, or otherwise participate or engage in any business as, or have any interest in, a Competitive Business.
