Item 1.01. ENTRY INTO MATERIAL DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT.

 

On February 26, 2019, Jensyn Acquisition Corp. (the “Company” or “Jensyn”) entered into a Share Exchange Agreement (the “Exchange Agreement”) with Peck Electric Co. (“Peck Electric”) and its stockholders (the “Stockholders”).

 

Peck Electric is the largest commercial solar EPC (engineering-procurement- contracting) company in the Northeast and ranked 60th in the United States by Solar Power World. Peck Electric provides EPC services to solar energy customers for projects ranging in size from several kilowatts for residential loads to multi-megawatt systems for large commercial and public work projects. Peck Electric has installed over 100 megawatts of solar systems since inception and is focused on profitable growth opportunities.

 

The material terms of the Exchange Agreement are summarized below.

 

Exchange of Shares

 

Upon the closing (the “Closing”) of the transactions contemplated by the Exchange Agreement, the stockholders of Peck Electric will exchange their shares of capital stock in Peck Electric for 3,234,501 shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Share Exchange”), representing approximately 59% of Jensyn’s outstanding shares after giving effect to the business combination. As a result of the Share Exchange, Peck Electric will become a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.

 

Earnout

 

In the event that Peck Electric’s Adjusted EBITDA (as defined in the Exchange Agreement) for the twelve month period commencing on the first day of the first full calendar quarter following the Closing (the “Earnout Period”) is $5,000,000 or more (the “Adjusted EBITDA Target”) or the closing price of the Company’s common stock is $12.00 or more per share at any time during the Earnout Period (the “Stock Price Target”), then the Company shall issue 898,473 shares of the Company’s common stock to the Stockholders and issue to certain of the initial stockholders of the Company a number of shares of the Company’s common stock equal to the number of shares of the Company’s common stock forfeited by such stockholders to the extent that such shares are used to satisfy Company obligations or to induce investors to make an equity investment in the Company at or prior to the Closing as described below under “Forfeiture of Sponsor Shares.”

 

Forfeiture of Sponsor Shares

 

By separate agreement, certain of the initial stockholders of the Company (the “Sponsors”) have agreed to forfeit (i) up to 200,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at the Closing to the extent that such shares are used to satisfy Company obligations or to induce investors to make an equity investment in the Company at or prior to the Closing and (ii) 200,000 shares of the Company’s common stock if neither the Adjusted EBITDA Target or the Stock Price Target is achieved during the Earnout Period.

 

2

 

 

Satisfaction of Company Expenses

 

The Company has agreed that immediately prior to the Closing, taking into account any funds remaining in the trust account (the “Trust Account”) established in connection with the Company’s initial public offering after giving effect to conversions as described below under “Stockholder Conversion Rights,” the Company shall satisfy its outstanding liabilities from cash on hand or by reissuing shares forfeited by the Sponsors as described above under “Forfeiture of Sponsor Shares”; provided, however, that in no event shall the Company satisfy such obligations in cash to the extent that payments of such obligations in cash would exceed $2,500,000.

 

Stockholder Conversion Rights

 

At the time that the Company seeks approval of the Share Exchange from its stockholders, the Company will offer its public shareholders the opportunity to convert their shares for cash upon the closing of the Share Exchange in an amount equal to their pro rata share of the funds held in the Trust Account that holds the proceeds of Jensyn’s initial public offering as provided by its amended and restated certificate of incorporation. As of February 27, 2019, the Trust Account held funds of approximately $6,068,239. In connection with the stockholder vote to extend the date by which the Company must complete its initial business combination to July 2, 2019, Jensyn Capital, LLC, a company controlled by the Company’s initial stockholders, agreed to deposit $.05 per share per month during the period beginning on January 4, 2019 and ending on the earlier of July 2, 2019 or the date that the Company completes its initial business combination for each public share that was not converted into cash in connection with the special meeting of stockholders held on January 3, 2019. If a business combination is not completed by July 2, 2019, this contribution will increase the funds available in the Trust Account for the conversion of shares to approximately $11.30 per share.

 

Conditions to Closing

 

The closing of the Share Exchange is subject to a number of conditions, including the approval of the Share Exchange by the Company’s Board of Directors, the Company’s reasonable satisfaction with the results of its due diligence investigation of Peck Electric, the approval of the Company’s stockholders, the receipt by the Company of an opinion from an investment banking firm that the transaction is fair, from a financial point of view, to the Company’s stockholders and the approval by the Company’s stockholders of an extension of the date by which the Company must complete its initial business combination to July 2, 2019. In addition, the Company and Peck Electric must have combined net tangible assets of at least $5,000,001 after the Closing.

 

Post-Closing Management

 

The senior management of Peck Electric will replace Jensyn’s existing management team following the closing of the Share Exchange. In addition, it is anticipated that at the time that Jensyn seeks approval of the Share Exchange by its stockholders, Jensyn’s stockholders will be asked to elect a new Board of Directors. The nominees will be three individuals designated by Peck Electric and two individuals designated by the Company.

Representations and Warranties

 

Under the Exchange Agreement, each of the Company, on the one hand, and Peck Electric and the Stockholders, on the other hand, made customary representations and warranties for transactions of this nature.

 

Indemnification

 

Under the Exchange Agreement, the Stockholders have agreed to indemnify the Company and its officers, directors and affiliates and representatives against losses and liabilities resulting from any breach of the representations and warranties of Peck Electric or the Stockholders contained in the Exchange Agreement or any breach of the covenants of Peck Electric and the Stockholders contained in the Exchange Agreement.

 

The Company has agreed to indemnify the Stockholders and their affiliates and representatives against losses and liabilities resulting from any breach of the representations or warranties of the Company set forth in the Exchange Agreement or any breach of the covenants of the Company contained in the Exchange Agreement.

 

Termination

 

The Exchange Agreement may be terminated under certain limited circumstances at any time prior to the consummation of the business combination (whether before or after the required stockholder vote of the Company has been obtained). If the Exchange Agreement is terminated pursuant to the provisions of the Exchange Agreement, all further obligations of the parties thereunder will terminate without any liability of any party thereto, other than any obligation or liability arising from any prior willful and material breach by such party and as described under the caption “Termination Payment” below.

 

Termination Payment

 

Peck Electric is required to pay the Company a $300,000 termination fee in the event that the Exchange Agreement is terminated (i) by the Company by reason of the breach by Peck Electric or the Stockholders of their representations and warranties set forth in the Purchase Agreement or (ii) by the Company or Peck Electric as a result of the Closing not having occurred by July 2, 2019 solely by reason of a delay caused solely by Peck Electric.

 

The Company is required to pay Peck Electric a $300,000 termination fee in the event that Peck Electric terminates the Exchange Agreement by reason of the breach by the Company of its representations and warranties set forth in the Exchange Agreement or if the Exchange Agreement is terminated by the Company or Peck Electric as a result of the Closing not having occurred by July 2, 2019 as a result of a delay solely caused by the Company. The Company is also required to pay Peck Electric a $300,000 termination fee if the Exchange Agreement is terminated by the Company as a result of the Closing not having occurred by July 2, 2019 for a reason other than a delay caused solely by Peck Electric, and the Company initiates an alternate business combination within six months of such termination.

During the Pre-Closing Period, JAC hereby agrees that (other than with respect to the Designated Contacts) JAC is not authorized to and shall not (and shall not permit any of its employees, agents, representatives or Affiliates to) contact any partner, member, equityholder (other than the Stockholders), officer, director, employee, customer, supplier, distributor, joint-venture partner, lessor, lender or other material business relation of the Company regarding the Company, its business or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, in each case, without the prior written consent of the Company or the Stockholders.

Section 6.12. Affiliated Transactions.

Section 6.13. No JAC Common Stock Transactions; Listing.

 

Neither the Company, Stockholders nor any of their respective Affiliates, directly or indirectly, shall engage in any transactions involving the securities of JAC prior to the time of the making of a public announcement of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or if earlier, the termination of this Agreement. The Company shall use commercially reasonable to require each of its officers, directors, employees, agents, advisors, and representatives, to comply with the foregoing sentence. From the date of this Agreement through the Closing, JAC shall take all reasonable efforts which are necessary or reasonably desirable for JAC to remain listed as a public company on, and for shares of JAC Common Stock to be tradable over, the applicable Nasdaq market(s).

 

Section 6.14. No Claim Against Trust Account.

 

The Company and each that JAC has established the Trust Account for the benefit of JAC’s public shareholders and that prior to the Closing, JAC may disburse monies from the Trust Account only (a) to JAC’s public shareholders in the event they elect to have their shares redeemed in accordance with JAC’s Charter Documents and/or the liquidation of JAC and (b) to pay income and franchise tax obligations from interest income earned in the Trust Account. The Company and Stockholder further acknowledge that, if the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (or, upon termination of this Agreement, another Business Combination) are not consummated by July 2, 2019 (as such date may be extended by a vote of JAC’s stockholders), JAC will be obligated to return to its shareholders the amounts being held in the Trust Account, unless such date is otherwise extended to a later date pursuant to the terms of the Certificate of Incorporation. Accordingly, the Company and each Stockholder, for each of itself, himself, herself and the subsidiaries, affiliated entities, directors, officers, employees, shareholders, representatives, advisors of the Company and all other associates and Affiliates, hereby waive all rights, title, interest or claim of any kind against JAC to collect from the Trust Account any monies that may be owed to them by JAC for any reason whatsoever, including a breach of this Agreement by JAC or any negotiations, agreements or understandings with JAC (whether in the past, present or future), and will not seek recourse against the Trust Account at any time for any reason whatsoever, in each case except as expressly contemplated by this Agreement (including the remedies provided in Section 10.12). This paragraph will survive the termination of this Agreement for any reason.

 

Section 6.15. JAC Borrowings.

 

Through the Closing, JAC shall be allowed to borrow funds from its directors, officers, shareholders and/or their respective affiliates to meet its reasonable capital requirements, with any such loans to be made only as reasonably required by the operation of JAC in due course on a non-interest bearing basis and repayable at Closing (or convertible into JAC Common Stock); provided, however, that JAC’s directors, officers, shareholders and their respective affiliates may loan funds to JAC for deposit in the Trust Account to fund the extension of the date by which JAC must complete its initial business combination and such loans may be interest bearing. The proceeds of such loans shall not be used for the payment of salaries, bonuses or other compensation to any of JAC’s directors, officers or shareholders.

This Agreement may be terminated and the transactions contemplated by this Agreement may be abandoned at any time prior to the Closing:

 

(a) by mutual written consent of JAC and the Company;

 

(b) by JAC, if any of the representations or warranties of the Company set forth in ARTICLE 3 or the representations and warranties of the Stockholders set forth in ARTICLE 4 shall not be true and correct such that the condition to Closing set forth in Section 7.2(a) would not be satisfied; provided that, prior to any termination of this Agreement under this Section 8.1(b), the Company and Stockholders shall be entitled to cure any such breach during a thirty (30) day period following receipt of written notice from JAC to the Stockholders of such breach (it being understood that JAC may not terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 8.1(b) if such breach by the Company or the Stockholders is cured during such thirty (30) day period so that such condition would then be satisfied);

 

(c) by the Company, if any of the representations or warranties of JAC set forth in ARTICLE 5 shall not be true and correct such that the condition to Closing set forth in Section 7.3(a) would not be satisfied; provided that, prior to any termination of this Agreement under this Section 8.1(c), JAC shall be entitled to cure any such breach during a thirty (30) day period following receipt of written notice from Stockholders to JAC of such breach (it being understood that the Company may not terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 8.1(c) if such breach by JAC is cured during such thirty (30) day period so that such condition would then be satisfied);

(e) by either JAC or the Company, if any Governmental Entity shall have issued an order, decree or ruling or taken any other action permanently enjoining, restraining or otherwise prohibiting the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and such order, decree or ruling or other action shall have become final and non-appealable.

In the event of the termination of this Agreement pursuant to Section 8.1, this entire Agreement shall forthwith become void (and there shall be no liability or obligation on the part of any Party, its Affiliates, or their respective officers, directors or equityholders) with the exception of (a) the provisions of this Section 8.2, Section 8.3 and ARTICLE 10, and (b) any liability of any Party for any willful and material breach of the covenants and agreements set forth in this Agreement (which, for the avoidance of doubt and without limiting any Party’s rights hereunder (including any rights to specific performance pursuant to Section 10.13) shall be deemed to include any willful failure by JAC to, when required, consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement) prior to such termination.

 36 

 

 

Section 8.3. Termination Payment.

 

(a) If this Agreement is terminated by JAC pursuant to Section 8.1(b), then the Company shall pay to JAC a termination fee in the amount of $300,000 within five (5) days of receipt of written notice of such termination. Payment to JAC of the Termination Fee pursuant to this Section 8.3(a) will constitute the payment of liquidated damages as JAC’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances.

 

(b) If this Agreement is terminated by the Company pursuant to Section 8.1(c), then JAC shall pay to the Company a termination fee in the amount of $300,000 within five (5) days of receipt of written notice of such termination. Payment to the Company of the Termination Fee pursuant to this Section 8.3(b) will constitute the payment of liquidated damages as the Company’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances.

 

(c) If this Agreement is terminated by JAC or the Company pursuant to Section 8.1(d) and the failure to either consummate the transaction in the case of Section 8.1(d) or complete the Offer in the case of Section 8.1(f) is the result of a delay caused solely by the Company, then the Company shall pay to JAC a termination fee in the amount of $300,000 within five (5) days of receipt of written notice of such termination. Payment to JAC of the Termination Fee pursuant to this Section 8.3(c) will constitute the payment of liquidated damages as JAC’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances.

 

(d) If this Agreement is terminated by JAC or the Company pursuant to Section 8.1(d) and the failure to either consummate the transaction in the case of Section 8.1(d) is the result of a delay caused solely by JAC, then JAC shall pay the Company a Termination Fee in the amount of $300,000 within five (5) days of receipt of written notice of such termination. Payment to the Company of the Termination Fee pursuant to this Section 8.3(d) will constitute the payment of liquidated damages as the Company’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances.

 

(e) If this Agreement is terminated by JAC pursuant to Section 8.1(d) and (i) the failure to either consummate the transaction in the case of Section 8.1(d) is not the result of a delay caused solely by the Company and (ii) JAC initiates an alternate transaction (an “Alternate Transaction”) with another operating company within 6 months of such termination, then JAC shall pay to the Company a Termination Fee in the amount of $300,000 within five (5) after the date a filing with respect to the closing of such Alternate Transaction is filed with the SEC. Payment to the Company of the Termination Fee pursuant to this Section 8.3(e) will constitute the payment of liquidated damages as the Company’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances.

ARTICLE 9

INDEMNIFICATION

 

Section 9.1. Survival of Representations, Warranties and Covenants.

 

All of the representations and warranties, covenants and agreements contained herein shall survive the Closing and remain in full force and effect for the Survival Period; provided, however, that in all cases, (a) representations and warranties in respect of which an indemnification claim shall be pending as of the end of the applicable period referred to above shall survive with respect to such indemnification claim until the final disposition thereof and (b) all covenants and agreements that contemplate performance following the Closing shall survive in accordance with their respective terms as provided in this Agreement.

 

Section 9.2. Indemnification.

 

(a) Indemnification by Stockholders. Subject to the other provisions of this ARTICLE 9, from and after the Closing, the Stockholders (the “Stockholders Indemnifying Party”), severally and not jointly, shall indemnify JAC, and each of its Affiliates and each of its respective Representatives, and successors and assigns, as the case may be (the “JAC Indemnified Parties”) and hold each of them harmless from and against, and reimburse and pay each of them as actually incurred with respect to, any and all losses, liabilities, obligations, damages, deficiencies, actions, suits, proceedings, demands, assessments, judgments, penalties, diminutions in value, lost earnings, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs of investigation, suffered or paid by them (collectively, “Losses”) as a result and to the extent arising out of: (i) any breach of any representations or warranties by the Company or any Stockholder; and (ii) any breach by the Company or any Stockholder of any of its covenants or agreements contained in this Agreement that are required to be performed prior to the Closing Date (“JAC Indemnifiable Claims”). The JAC Indemnified Parties shall not be entitled to indemnification (which may be asserted by the JAC Representative on behalf of JAC and the JAC Indemnified Parties) under this ARTICLE 9 (other than with respect to JAC Indemnifiable Claims under clauses (ii) or (iii) above) unless the aggregate of all of the Indemnifying Party’s obligations to indemnify the JAC Indemnified Parties pursuant to this ARTICLE 9 exceeds $1,000,000 (the “Basket”), and once this threshold has been exceeded, the Indemnifying Party shall indemnify the JAC Indemnified Parties for all of such obligations, subject to the limitations set forth in Section 9.3 hereof.

 

(b) Indemnification by JAC. Subject to the other provisions of this ARTICLE 9, from and after the Closing, JAC (the “JAC Indemnifying Party” and collectively with the Stockholders Indemnifying Parties, the “Indemnifying Parties”) shall indemnify the Stockholders and each of their Affiliates and each of their respective Representatives, and successors and assigns, as the case may be (the “Stockholders Indemnified Parties” and together with the JAC Indemnified Parties, the “Indemnified Parties”) and hold each of them harmless from and against, and reimburse and pay each of them as actually incurred with respect to, any and all Losses as a result and to the extent of a Third Party Claim arising out: (i) any breach of any representations or warranties by JAC and (ii) any breach by JAC of any of its covenants or agreements contained in this Agreement (“Stockholders Indemnifiable Claims”, and collectively with the JAC Indemnifiable Claims, “Indemnifiable Claims”).

 

 38 

 

 

Section 9.3. Limitations on Indemnification.

 

(a) Other than with respect to Losses which were the result of fraud, a breach of a Company Fundamental Representation or a breach of a JAC Fundamental Representation, the maximum amount the Indemnified Parties shall be entitled to recover in the aggregate with respect to any and all Indemnifiable Claims shall be $7,200,000. IN NO EVENT WILL THE COMPANY OR JAC BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, HOWEVER CAUSED, EVEN IF A PARTY HAS BEEN IS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

 

(b) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, upon any Indemnified Party becoming aware of any Indemnifiable Claim, such Indemnified Party shall utilize all reasonable efforts, consistent with normal practices and policies and good commercial practice, to mitigate such Losses. For purposes of this ARTICLE 9, all Losses shall be computed net of (i) any insurance proceeds actually received, (ii) any amounts recovered by the Indemnified Party or any of its respective Affiliates from any Person with respect to such Losses (whether under any agreement for indemnification, contribution or otherwise) and (iii) the amount of any Tax benefit actually realized, in each case by the Indemnified Party (as applicable, or any Affiliate thereof) that is attributable to the Losses to which such claim relates, and with respect to clause (iii) to the taxable period in which such Losses are incurred, treating any item of loss, deduction or credit as a result of such Losses as the last item used in such period, and taking into account any Tax detriment suffered by the Indemnified Parties as a result of such Losses and the receipt of the related indemnity payment (in the case of clauses (i), (ii) and (iii), net of the cost and expense of obtaining any such benefits, proceeds, payments or reimbursements). The Indemnified Party shall use commercially reasonable efforts to pursue, and to cause their respective Affiliates to pursue, all insurance claims, other third-party payments and Tax benefits to which it or they may be entitled in connection with any Losses incurred. If any Indemnified Party actually receives any insurance or other third party payment in connection with any claim for Losses for which it has already received a payment under this ARTICLE 9, it shall pay to the Stockholders or JAC, as applicable, within thirty (30) days after such payment is received, an amount equal to the excess of (x) the amount previously received by such Indemnified Party with respect to such claim plus the amount of such insurance or other third party payment, less the costs of collection and, if insurance proceeds are received, any increase in premiums directly caused by the receipt of such insurance proceeds, over (y) the amount of Losses to which JAC or the Stockholder, as applicable, has become entitled under this Agreement in connection with such claim. For purposes of this Agreement, “Third Party Claim(s)” shall mean any and all losses, liabilities, obligations, damages, deficiencies, actions, suits, proceedings, demands, assessments, judgments, penalties, diminutions in value, lost earnings, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs of investigation brought by a third party.

 

(c) Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, for the purpose of calculating the amount of any Losses incurred as a result of any breach of the representations and warranties and covenants contained in this Agreement, any qualification with respect to materiality, Company Material Adverse Effect or other similar qualification shall be disregarded.

 

(d) Notwithstanding anything else to the contrary set forth herein, the right to indemnification, payment of Losses or any other remedy based on representations, warranties or covenants will not be affected by any investigation conducted with respect to or any knowledge acquired (or capable of being acquired) at any time with respect to the accuracy or inaccuracy of or compliance with, any such representation, warranty or covenant. No Indemnified Party shall be entitled to indemnification under this Section 9 with respect to the breach of any representations or warranties unless such Indemnified Party promptly provides notice of an indemnity claim, together with an explanation of the basis of the claim with reasonable specificity therefor, prior to the expiration of the applicable Survival Period.

 

 39 

 

 

Section 9.4. Indemnification Procedures.

 

(a) Indemnifying and Indemnified Parties. If an Indemnified Party shall receive notice of any Third Party Claim, the Indemnified Party shall give JAC (with a copy to the JAC Representative) or Stockholders, on behalf of the Indemnifying Parties, notice of such Third Party Claim as soon as reasonably practicable following, and in any event within 30 days of, the receipt by the Indemnified Party of such notice. The Notice of Claim shall describe in reasonable detail the facts known to the Indemnified Party giving rise to such indemnification claim and the amount or good faith estimate of the amount arising therefrom. The failure of the Indemnified Party to provide prompt notice of any claim within the time periods specified shall not release, waive or otherwise affect Indemnifying Parties’ obligations with respect thereto except to the extent that the Indemnifying Parties are materially prejudiced as a result of such failure.

 

(b) Defense of Claims. The Indemnifying Parties shall be entitled to assume and control the defense of any Third Party Claim through counsel of their choice (such counsel to be reasonably acceptable to the Indemnified Party) if (i) it gives notice of its intention to do so to the Indemnified Party within 30 days of receiving notice of the Third Party Claim,(ii) the Third Party Claim does not include criminal charges and (iii) if the Third Party Claim were to be decided adversely to the Indemnifying Party, such a decision could reasonably be expected to result in Losses for which the Indemnifying Party would be responsible for a greater portion of the Losses related to such Third Party Claim than the Indemnified Party. If the Indemnifying Parties do not assume the defense of a Third Party Claim in accordance with this Section 9.4(c), the Indemnified Party may continue to defend the Third Party Claim. The Indemnified Party shall cooperate with the Indemnifying Parties in such defense and make available to the Indemnifying Parties, at the Indemnifying Parties’ expense, all witnesses, pertinent records, materials and information in the Indemnified Party’s possession or under the Indemnified Party’s control relating thereto as is reasonably requested by the Indemnifying Parties. Except with the written consent of the Indemnified Party, the Indemnifying Parties shall not, in the defense of a Third Party Claim, consent to the entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement which does not include as an unconditional term thereof the giving to the Indemnified Party by the third party of a release from all liability with respect to such suit, claim, action, or proceeding.

 

Section 9.5. Payment of Indemnification

 

In the event that any JAC Indemnified Parties are entitled to any indemnification pursuant to this ARTICLE 9, the Stockholders Indemnifying Parties may at their option either pay the amount of the indemnification (subject to the limitations set forth in this ARTICLE 9) (i) in cash or (ii) with JAC Shares valued at the Redemption Amount or if greater, their current fair market value. Any payments hereunder will be treated as an adjustment to the purchase price.

 

Section 9.6. Exclusive Remedy.

 

Notwithstanding anything else contained in this Agreement to the contrary, indemnification pursuant to the provisions of this ARTICLE 9 shall be the sole and exclusive remedy with respect to any claim resulting from a breach of the covenants, agreements, representations or warranties set forth in this Agreement, except (a) in the case of fraud, bad faith, gross or willful misconduct by any Person, (b) for any action seeking specific performance, declaratory judgment or injunctive relief and (c) for the avoidance of doubt, the remedies set forth in Section 2.5.

 

Section 9.7. Liability of JAC Representative.

 

The JAC Representative will have no liability for any act done or omitted under this Agreement as the JAC Representative except to the extent that any act or omission constitutes fraud, bad faith, gross negligence or willful misconduct.

This Agreement and any claim, controversy or dispute arising under or related in any way to this Agreement, the relationship of the Parties, the transaction leading to this Agreement or contemplated hereby and/or the interpretation and/or enforcement of the respective rights and duties of the Parties hereunder or related in any way to the foregoing, shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal, substantive laws of the State of New York applicable to agreements entered into and to be performed solely within such state, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of New York or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the law of any jurisdiction other than the State of New York.

Section 10.4. Fees and Expenses.

 

Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement or the Letter of Intent, whether or not the transactions contemplated by this Agreement are consummated, all fees and expenses incurred in connection with this Agreement and the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, including the fees and disbursements of counsel, financial advisors and accountants, shall be paid by the Party incurring such fees or expenses.

 

Section 10.5. Construction; Interpretation.

 

The headings contained in this Agreement are inserted for convenience only and shall not affect in any way the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement. No Party, nor its respective counsel, shall be deemed the drafter of this Agreement for purposes of construing the provisions hereof, and all provisions of this Agreement shall be construed according to their fair meaning and not strictly for or against any Party. Unless otherwise indicated to the contrary herein by the context or use thereof: (i) the words, “herein,” “hereto,” “hereof” and words of similar import refer to this Agreement as a whole, including the Schedules, Exhibits and Annexes, and not to any particular section, subsection, paragraph, subparagraph or clause contained in this Agreement; (ii) masculine gender shall also include the feminine and neutral genders, and vice versa; (iii) words importing the singular shall also include the plural, and vice versa; (iv) references to a Person are also to its successors and permitted assigns; (v) the word “extent” in the phrase of “to the extent” shall mean the degree to which a subject or other thing extends, and such phrase shall not mean simply “if”; (vi) any reference to any month or any day period shall mean the calendar month or the calendar day period unless expressly specified otherwise and (vii) whenever the words “include,” “includes” or “including” are used in this Agreement, they are deemed to be followed by the words “without limitation”.

 

Section 10.6. Exhibits and Schedules.

 

(a) All exhibits and Schedules, or documents expressly incorporated into this Agreement, are hereby incorporated into this Agreement and are hereby made a part hereof as if set out in full in this Agreement. Any item disclosed in any Schedule referenced by a particular section in this Agreement shall be deemed to have been disclosed with respect to every other section in this Agreement if the relevance of such disclosure to such other sections is reasonably apparent on its face. The specification of any dollar amount in the representations or warranties contained in this Agreement (or in any certificate delivered pursuant to Section 7.2(d) or Section 7.3(e), as the case may be) or the inclusion of any specific item in any Schedule is not intended to imply that such amounts, or higher or lower amounts or the items so included or other items, are or are not material, and no party shall use the fact of the setting of such amounts or the inclusion of any such item in any dispute or controversy as to whether any obligation, items or matter not described herein or included in a Schedule is or is not material for purposes of this Agreement.

 

Section 10.7. Parties in Interest.

 

This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure solely to the benefit of each Party and its successors and permitted assigns and, except as provided in Section 6.11, nothing in this Agreement, express or implied, is intended to or shall confer upon any other Person any rights, benefits or remedies of any nature whatsoever under or by reason of this.

 

 43 

 

 

Section 10.8. Severability.

 

Whenever possible, each provision of this Agreement will be interpreted in such a manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law, but if any term or other provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable under applicable law, all other provisions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect so long as the economic or legal substance of the transactions contemplated hereby is not affected in any manner materially adverse to any party hereto. Upon such determination that any term or other provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal or unenforceable under applicable law, the Parties hereto shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect the original intent of the Parties as closely as possible in an acceptable manner in order that the transactions contemplated hereby are consummated as originally contemplated to the greatest extent possible. Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent that any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement of the Company or any Stockholder contained in this Agreement or the Schedules addresses a particular issue with specificity, and no breach by the Company or any Stockholder exists under such specific provision, the Company shall not be deemed to be in breach of any other provision of this Agreement (with respect to such issue) that addresses such issue with less specificity than such specific provision and if such specific provision is qualified or limited by the Company’s Knowledge, or in any other manner, no other provision shall supersede or limit such qualification in any manner.

 

Section 10.9. Counterparts; Facsimile Signatures.

 

This Agreement may be executed in two or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original, but all of which shall constitute one and the same agreement. Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page to this Agreement by facsimile or scanned pages shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart to this Agreement.

 

Section 10.10. WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL

 

EACH PARTY HEREBY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY OF ANY CLAIM, DEMAND, ACTION, OR CAUSE OF ACTION (A) ARISING UNDER THIS AGREEMENT OR (B) IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH OR RELATED OR INCIDENTAL TO THE DEALINGS OF THE PARTIES IN RESPECT OF THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OF THE TRANSACTIONS RELATED HERETO (INCLUDING WITH RESPECT TO THE DEBT FINANCING), IN EACH CASE, WHETHER NOW EXISTING OR HEREAFTER ARISING, AND WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, EQUITY, OR OTHERWISE. EACH PARTY HEREBY FURTHER AGREES AND CONSENTS THAT ANY SUCH CLAIM, DEMAND, ACTION, OR CAUSE OF ACTION SHALL BE DECIDED BY COURT TRIAL WITHOUT A JURY AND THAT THE PARTIES MAY FILE A COPY OF THIS AGREEMENT WITH ANY COURT AS WRITTEN EVIDENCE OF THE CONSENT OF THE PARTIES TO THE WAIVER OF THEIR RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY.

 

Section 10.11. Jurisdiction and Venue

 

Each of the Parties (a) submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of any state or federal court sitting in the State of New York, in any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement, (b) agrees that all claims in respect of such action or proceeding may be heard and determined in any such court and (c) agrees not to bring any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement in any other court. Each of the Parties waives any defense of inconvenient forum to the maintenance of any action or proceeding so. Each Party agrees that service of summons and complaint or any other process that might be served in any action or proceeding may be made on JAC by sending or delivering a copy of the process to the Party to be served at the address of the Party and in the manner provided for the giving of notices in Section 10.2. Nothing in this Section 10.11, however, shall affect the right of any Party to serve legal process in any other manner permitted by law. Each Party agrees that a final, non-appealable judgment in any action or proceeding so brought shall be conclusive and may be enforced by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by law.

Section 10.12. Specific Performance

 

Each Party hereby acknowledges and agrees that irreparable damage would occur if any of the provisions of this Agreement are not performed in accordance with their specific terms, and that in the event of breach of this Agreement by a Party, the non-breaching Party would not be adequately compensated in all cases by monetary damages alone. Accordingly, after such time as the Parties have agreed on the forms of each of the Ancillary Agreements, in addition to any other right or remedy to which the non-breaching Party may be entitled, it shall be entitled to enforce any provision of this Agreement by a decree of specific performance and to temporary, preliminary and permanent injunctive relief to prevent breaches or threatened breaches of any of the provisions of this Agreement, without posting any bond or other undertaking.
