Item 1.01.    Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On June 6, 2018, Entegris, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into a Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with SAES Getters S.p.A., an Italian joint stock company (“Parent”). The Purchase Agreement provides that, upon the terms and subject to the conditions thereof, the Company will acquire the gas purification business of the Parent (the “Pure Gas Business”), principally operated through SAES Pure Gas, Inc. (“SPG”), a California corporation and wholly-owned, indirect subsidiary of the Parent. Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Company will acquire all of the issued and outstanding capital stock of SAES Getters/U.S.A., Inc. (“SUSA”), a Colorado corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent, whose sole asset as of the closing (other than minute books and similar corporate records) will be all of the issued and outstanding capital stock of SPG. Prior to the closing, SUSA will transfer all of its assets and liabilities that are unrelated to the Pure Gas Business to an affiliate of Parent (the “Pre-Closing Restructuring”). The Company will also indirectly acquire the assets and employees through which Parent operates the Pure Gas Business in the People's Republic of China. The Purchase Agreement provides that the Company will pay an aggregate consideration of $355 million in cash to acquire the Pure Gas Business on a debt-free basis, subject to customary purchase price adjustments.
The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants of the parties. The closing of the transaction is subject to the completion of the Pre-Closing Restructuring and other customary closing conditions. The waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 for the transaction has expired. From the date of the Purchase Agreement until the closing of the transaction, the Parent is required to operate the Pure Gas Business in the ordinary course and comply with certain covenants regarding operation of the business. In addition, in connection with entry into the Purchase Agreement, Parent and the Company have agreed to enter into certain agreements upon the closing of the transaction, pursuant to which Parent will, among other matters, provide certain services to accommodate the transition of the Pure Gas Business and continue supplying certain products manufactured by Parent for use in the Pure Gas Business.
A copy of the Purchase Agreement is filed herewith as Exhibit 2.1 and incorporated by reference herein. This summary of certain terms of the Purchase Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Purchase Agreement. The Purchase Agreement has been filed to provide investors and security holders with information regarding its terms. It is not intended to provide any other information about the Company, Parent or the Pure Gas Business. The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Purchase Agreement were made only for the purposes of such agreement and as of specified dates, were solely for the benefit of the parties to such agreement, and may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the contracting parties and may be subject to standards of materiality applicable to the contracting parties that differ from those applicable to investors. In addition, the assertions embodied in the representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Purchase Agreement are qualified by information in confidential disclosure schedules that the parties have exchanged, which have been omitted pursuant to Item 601(b) (2) of Regulation S-K. Accordingly, investors should not rely on the representations, warranties and covenants as characterizations of the actual state of facts. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the representations, warranties and covenants may change after the date of the Purchase Agreement, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in the Company’s public disclosure.

The Independent Accountant shall act as an accounting expert and not as an arbitrator, and shall issue a final and binding resolution with respect to all Disputed Items. Buyer and the Stockholder agree to execute, if requested by the Independent Accountant, a reasonable engagement letter, and shall use reasonable efforts to cause the Independent Accountant to issue its written determination as to such Disputed Items, which shall be within the range of the respective positions taken by each of Buyer and the Stockholder, within twenty (20) Business Days after such Disputed Items have been so submitted to the Independent Accountant, and the determination by the Independent Accountant as to the resolution of all such Disputed Items will be final and binding among the Parties and shall not be subject to dispute, appeal, Proceeding or challenge for any reason, absent fraud or manifest error. The costs and expenses of the Independent Accountant shall be borne and paid by either the Buyer Parties (jointly and severally, on the one hand) or the Stockholder (on the other hand) as determined by the Independent Accountant (with the Independent Accountant being instructed by the Parties to assign responsibility for its costs and expenses on a pro rata basis based upon the degree to which the Independent Accountant has accepted the respective positions of Buyer and the Stockholder, which shall be determined by the Independent Accountant and set forth in the final determinations prepared by such Independent Accountant). The Proposed Closing Balance Sheet, the Proposed Closing Working Capital, the Proposed Closing Cash, the Proposed Closing Accrued Taxes and the proposed Settlement Amounts, after giving effect to any Agreed Adjustments and to the resolution of Disputed Items by the Independent Accountant, shall be deemed to be final and binding as the Final Closing Balance Sheet, the Final Closing Working Capital, the Final Closing Cash, the Final Closing Accrued Taxes and the Final Closing Settlement Amounts for purposes of this Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, the procedures set forth in this Section 2.03 shall be the sole and exclusive remedy with respect to the final determination of the Final Closing Balance Sheet, the Final Closing

(g)If any of the Final Closing Working Capital, the Final Closing Cash, the Final Closing Accrued Taxes or any component of the Final Closing Settlement Amounts (as finally determined pursuant to Section 2.03(c), (d) or (e) hereof) differs from the estimated amounts thereof set forth in the Estimated Closing Certificate, the Net Proceeds and the Seller Party Proceeds shall be recalculated using such final figures in lieu of such estimated figures. Promptly (but not later than five (5) Business Days) after the final and binding determination of the Final Closing Balance Sheet and such recalculated amounts pursuant to this Section 2.03:
(i)If the Seller Party Proceeds as recalculated pursuant to this Section 2.03(g) is less than the estimated Seller Party Proceeds set forth in the Estimated Closing Certificate, the Stockholder will pay to Buyer, by wire transfer of immediately available funds to such bank account(s) as Buyer shall designate in writing to the Stockholder, the amount of such shortfall.
(ii)If the Seller Party Proceeds as recalculated pursuant to this Section 2.03(g) is greater than the estimated Seller Party Proceeds set forth in the Estimated Closing Certificate, the Buyer Parties will, jointly and severally, pay to the Stockholder, by wire transfer of immediately available funds to such bank account(s) as the Stockholder shall designate in writing to Buyer, the amount of such excess.

The Buyer Parties shall be entitled to (i) deduct and withhold (or cause to be deducted or withheld) from any consideration payable pursuant to the Transaction Documents to the Seller Parties or any other Person such amounts, if any, as are required to be deducted or withheld therefrom or in connection therewith under any applicable Tax Law or legal requirement and (ii) to require any necessary Tax forms, including Internal Revenue Service Form W-9 or the applicable series of IRS Form W-8, as applicable, or any similar information, from the Seller Parties or any other Person to whom a payment is required to be made pursuant to the Transaction Documents. Buyer shall provide the Stockholder with prompt written notice reasonably detailing any amounts required to be deducted or withheld from any consideration payable pursuant to this Agreement or the Transaction Documents and shall identify the applicable Tax Law under which the deduction or withholding is required, provide the Seller Parties with the opportunity to furnish any necessary Tax forms in order to avoid or reduce such withholding in advance of Buyer deducting or withholding from any consideration payable pursuant to this Agreement or the Transaction Documents; provided that such opportunity does not subject the Buyer Parties or any other Person to any potential liability to a relevant Taxing Authority for any claimed withholding and payment or otherwise result in adverse Tax

19



consequences to the Buyer Parties. To the extent such amounts are so deducted or withheld, such amounts shall be timely remitted to the proper Governmental Authority and shall be treated for all purposes under the Transaction Documents as having been paid to the Seller Party or to the Person, respectively, to whom such amounts would otherwise have been paid.

The Stockholder shall prepare, or cause to be prepared, and timely file, or cause to be timely filed, all income Tax Returns of the Acquired Companies for any Pre-Closing Tax Period that are filed with any Taxing Authority before or after the Closing Date. Such Tax Returns shall be true, correct and complete in all material respects and accurately set forth all items to the extent required to be reflected or included in such Tax Returns by applicable Federal, state, local or non-U.S. Tax Laws. Such Tax Returns shall be prepared on a basis consistent with those prepared for prior taxable periods unless a different treatment of any item is required by applicable Law.

For purposes of clause (i) of the preceding sentence, any exemption, deduction, credit or other item (including the effect of any graduated rates of Tax) that is calculated on an annual basis shall be allocated to the portion of the Straddle Period ending on the Closing Date on a pro rata basis determined by multiplying the total amount of such item allocated to the Straddle Period times a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of calendar days in the portion of the Straddle Period ending on the Closing Date and the denominator of which is the number of calendar days in the entire Straddle Period. All determinations necessary to give effect to the foregoing allocations shall be made in a manner consistent with the past practice of the Acquired Companies. In the case of Tax Returns to be filed with respect to a Straddle Period, the Buyer Parties shall, except as otherwise required by applicable Law, prepare such Tax Returns in a manner consistent with past practice, and timely file such Tax Returns with the applicable Taxing Authority, provided that, with respect to any Tax Returns addressed by this Section 6.13(c) that includes Pre-Closing Taxes, Buyer Parties shall deliver any such Tax Return to the Stockholder for its review at least thirty (30) days prior to the date such Tax Return is required to be filed (including extensions) and the Buyer Parties shall consider in good faith comments provided by Stockholder with respect thereto.

Any Pre-Closing Tax Refunds and Credits due and owing to a Seller Party pursuant to this Section 6.13(f)(ii) shall be paid by the Buyer Parties within ten (10) Business Days after receipt or utilization thereof by bank wire transfer of immediately available funds; provided, however, that Buyer may offset the amount of any Pre-Closing Tax Refund and Credit payable hereunder by the amount of any Tax liabilities due and owing to the Buyer Parties pursuant to Stockholder’s indemnification obligations set forth in Section 9.02 (to the extent that such indemnification claims have been resolved in favor of the Buyer Parties pursuant to Section 6.13(g) and Section 9.05 below). In addition, the Buyer Parties shall pay, or cause to be paid, to the Seller Parties an amount equal to any refund of Taxes that would have been payable to the Seller Parties pursuant to this Section 6.13, except that such refund was used to pay or credited against Post-Closing Taxes.

(g)Tax Audits and Contests.
(i)After the Closing, unless Buyer has previously received written notice from Stockholder, Buyer shall promptly notify the Stockholder in writing within ten (10) Business Days of receipt of any demand, claim or notice of the commencement of an audit or administrative or judicial proceeding involving any asserted Tax liability or refund with respect to any Acquired Company, the Purchased Assets or the Business relating to Taxes (“Contest”) that are or may be the Seller Parties’ responsibility under this Agreement (“Seller Contest”) received by any Buyer Party, any Acquired Company or any Affiliate of any of the foregoing, but failure to give such notice shall not relieve the Seller Parties of any liability hereunder except to the extent, if any, that the rights of Seller Parties with respect to such claim are actually prejudiced. Unless the Stockholder has previously received written notice from Buyer, Stockholder shall promptly notify Buyer of the existence of any Seller Contest within ten (10) Business Days from the receipt by Seller Parties of any written notice of such Seller Contest. The notices described in this paragraph shall contain factual information (to the extent known) describing the asserted Tax liability and shall include copies of the relevant portion of any notice or other document

52



received from any Governmental Authority or any other Person in respect of any such asserted Tax liability.
(ii)Stockholder shall have the right to control, through counsel of its own choosing and expense, the conduct of any Seller Contest, including those that relate to any Acquired Company for a Pre-Closing Tax Period or of the China Asset Seller. The Buyer Parties shall have the right to participate in (but not control) any Seller Contest at their own expense if such Seller Contest reasonably could be expected to result in (A) a Tax liability for any Buyer Party or any Acquired Company, or (B) otherwise adversely affect any Buyer Party, any Acquired Company or the Business, in each case, for any taxable year (or portion thereof) beginning after the Closing Date. The Stockholder shall not settle, compromise and/or concede any portion of any Seller Contest in a manner that adversely affects the Tax liability of any Buyer Party, any Acquired Company or the Business for any taxable year (or portion thereof) beginning after the Closing Date without the prior written consent of Buyer (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned). If Stockholder elects not to control the conduct of any Seller Contest, (x) Seller Parties shall fund any deposit or other payment of Tax that is required in order for the Buyer Parties or their Affiliates to pursue such Seller Contest; provided, however, that no such requirement shall apply if Stockholder instructs Buyer not to pursue the Seller Contest and acknowledges its obligation to indemnify the Buyer Parties for the asserted liability, and (y) Buyer Parties may not settle, compromise and/or concede any portion of such Seller Contest in a manner that adversely affects the Tax liability of any Acquired Company or the Business for any Pre-Closing Tax Period or for the pre-Closing portion of the Straddle Period without the prior written consent of Stockholder (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned).
(iii)Buyer Parties shall have the right to control, in their sole discretion, the conduct of any Contest that is not a Seller Contest.
(h)If, upon a full or partial conclusion, settlement or other disposition of a Seller Contest, a Taxing Authority assesses Taxes that are indemnifiable by the Stockholder pursuant to this Agreement, (A) Buyer shall provide the Stockholder a written notice setting forth the amount of such Tax assessment (to the extent the Stockholder has not otherwise received such information), (B) the Stockholder shall, within fifteen (15) Business Days of its receipt of Buyer’s written notice under (A) (or of the day it receives such information), pay such Taxes either to the Taxing Authority directly (and furnish Buyer with written proof of payment) or to Buyer in accordance with the payment and distribution method reasonably acceptable to Buyer, and (C) the limitations and other provisions set forth in Article IX (other than Section 9.04 and Section 9.05) shall otherwise apply to such Tax claims.

Section 6.14    Employee Matters.

53



(a)Effective as of the Closing Date, the China Asset Seller will terminate the employment of each individual who is employed by the China Asset Seller in connection with the Business (including each such employee who is not actively at work on account of illness, disability or leave of absence) and who is listed on Schedule 6.14(a) hereto (the “Transferring China Employees”) and the China Asset Buyer will enter into a written employment agreement with each Transferring China Employee. For the avoidance of doubt, except for the Assumed Liabilities and all liabilities accrued for or counted as a current liability in the calculation of Working Capital, the China Asset Seller shall be solely responsible for any and all liabilities in relation to the Transferring China Employees that arise or relate to the period on or prior to the Closing Date, including any such liability incurred in connection with the termination of the employment of such Transferring China Employees and/or the transfer of such Transferring China Employees’ employment. Accordingly, on the Closing Date, the China Asset Seller shall pay to each Transferring China Employee an annual leave compensation for the accrued paid annual leave time that was earned but unused by such Transferring China Employee prior to the Closing Date in accordance with applicable Chinese Law. Such employment shall be consistent with the terms of any collective labor agreement applicable to any of the Transferring China Employees and shall be on terms and conditions not less favorable than those in effect for such Transferring China Employees immediately prior to the Closing. With respect to Transferring China Employees, the China Asset Buyer shall give full credit for the term of employment with the China Asset Seller and for all purposes (and, for the avoidance of doubt), each such Transferring China Employee’s years of service with the China Asset Seller will be merged with and into such Transferring China Employee’s years of service with the China Asset Buyer for purposes of eligibility, vesting and benefit levels, including, without limitation, for the purpose of calculation of severance pay where necessary (but not in a way that gives past service credit for benefit accrual purposes for (i) the Long-Term Retention Award plan or (ii) any non-statutory plan adopted by the Buyer Parties following the Closing). Transferring China Employees, all of the employees of the Acquired Companies as of the Closing (including each employee who is not actively at work on account of illness, disability or leave of absence), and Cristian Landoni (solely to the extent that Mr. Landoni resigns his employment with the Stockholder immediately prior to the Closing) shall collectively be referred to as the “Acquired Employees”.
(b)For a period commencing on the Closing Date and ending no earlier than the twelve (12) month anniversary of the Closing Date, the Buyer Parties shall (and shall cause their respective Affiliates, including the Acquired Companies to) take all action necessary so that each Acquired Employee shall receive base wages or salary, bonus opportunity, and Benefit Programs, all of the foregoing considered in the aggregate (a “Compensation Package”) that is comparable to the Compensation Package received by similarly situated employees of the Buyer Parties and their Affiliates (other than the Acquired Companies) at the time; provided, however, that the Buyer Parties shall cause SPG to maintain the Annual Incentive Plan for SPG (cash bonus) (as referred to in Schedule 4.18) for the 2018 performance (calendar) year; and further provided that, with respect to any Acquired Employee whose employment is terminated by any Buyer Party or any Acquired Company on or prior to the twelve (12) month anniversary of the Closing Date, the Buyer

54



Parties shall (or shall cause their respective Affiliates, including the Acquired Companies to) provide such Acquired Employee with severance benefits on terms and conditions that are no less favorable than (A) those severance benefits available to such Acquired Employee under the Acquired Company Plans, or (B) those severance benefits available to similarly situated employees of the Buyer Parties or any of their respective Affiliates, whichever is more favorable.
(c)Each Buyer Party shall (and shall cause its respective Affiliates, including the Acquired Companies to):
(i)credit Acquired Employees with all service credited to such Acquired Employees as of the Closing Date in addition to service earned with any Buyer Party or any Acquired Company after the Closing Date for purposes of eligibility and vesting and, solely with respect to the amount of any vacation, sick days, severance, layoff and similar benefits, levels of accruals of benefits under Benefit Programs;
(ii)use commercially reasonable efforts to waive any pre-existing condition exclusions, evidence of insurability requirements, actively at work requirements or waiting periods for participation and coverage applicable under Benefit Programs with respect to Acquired Employees and their dependents; and
(iii)use commercially reasonable efforts to credit Acquired Employees with any amounts paid under a plan maintained by any Seller Party (or any of their respective Affiliates, including any Acquired Company) prior to the Closing Date for purposes of satisfying any applicable deductible, coinsurance or out-of-pocket requirements for the plan year that includes the Closing Date as if such amounts had been paid under a corresponding Benefit Program.
(d)Each Buyer Party shall (and shall cause its respective Affiliates, including the Acquired Companies to) provide, honor and recognize all accrued but unused vacation (excluding any annual leave compensation paid pursuant to Section 6.14(a)) with respect to Acquired Employees as of the Closing Date.
(e)As of the Closing Date, each Acquired Company shall terminate its participation in each Plan that is not an Acquired Company Plan and each Acquired Employee shall cease to participate in any Plan, and in no event shall any Acquired Employee be entitled to accrue any benefits under such Plans with respect to services rendered or compensation paid on or after the Closing Date. The Seller Party that sponsors or maintains each such Plan shall retain all liabilities and obligations under such Plan. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 6.14(e), the Acquired Employees shall continue to participate in the Seller Party’s U.S. medical and health plans to the extent provided and on the terms set forth in the Transition Services Agreement.
(f)Seller Parties and all appropriate Buyer Parties shall take commercially reasonable efforts to permit Acquired Employees to make rollover contributions of “eligible rollover distributions” (within the meaning of Section 401(a)(31) of the Code) of the account balance (including in the case of loans, rollovers of notes in-kind) distributable to Acquired Employees from the 401(k) plan of the Seller Party in which they participate, to a Section 401(k) defined contribution plan of a Buyer Party. Seller Parties

55



shall cause an Acquired Company to pay to each Acquired Employee in cash in a lump sum on or before the Closing Date an amount equal to the amount of such Acquired Employee’s accrued Profit Sharing Contribution under the Seller Party’s 401(k) plan for the period through May 31, 2018, as taxable compensation.
(g)Notwithstanding anything set forth herein to the contrary, (i) the Parties do not intend for this Agreement to, and this Agreement shall not, amend any Plans or arrangements or create any rights or obligations except between the Parties, (ii) this Section 6.14 is not intended to create any rights in any Person who is not a party to this Agreement, and no Acquired Employee or other current or former employee of the Acquired Companies or the Business (including any beneficiary or dependent thereof) or any other Person not a party to this Agreement shall be entitled to assert any claim hereunder, and (iii) nothing in this Agreement shall create any obligation on the part of any Buyer Party or any of their respective Affiliates to continue the employment of any Acquired Employee with any Acquired Company or any Buyer Party for any definite period following the Closing Date.
(h)Seller Parties shall cause SPG to pay to Timothy Johnson in cash in a lump sum on or before the Closing Date a bonus in an amount equal to the amount (i) of the severance due to Mr. Johnson in connection with termination of his employment as further set forth in the Employment Agreement with Mr. Johnson referenced on Schedule 4.14(a)(vii) plus (ii) the amount accrued with respect to Mr. Johnson under the SPG Annual Incentive Plan (cash bonus) through the latest payroll cutoff date prior to the Closing. Notwithstanding anything else herein, the parties agree that the Stockholder shall bear full economic responsibility for any payment to be made to Timothy Johnson arising from his termination of employment.

certificate of incorporation and bylaws (or similar organizational documents) in existence on the Closing Date with, or for the benefit of, any such directors, officers and employees for acts or omissions occurring on or prior to the Closing Date.
(b)In the event of a liquidation or dissolution of one or more of the Acquired Companies, or in the event that all or substantially all of the assets or all of the shares of capital stock of one or more of the Acquired Companies are sold, whether in one transaction or a series of transactions, then Buyer will ensure that the successors and assigns of such Acquired Companies (including the parent company of any Acquired Company in the event of a liquidation or dissolution) assume the obligations set forth in this Section 6.16.
(c)Notwithstanding Section 10.07, the provisions of this Section 6.16 are intended to be for the benefit of, and will be enforceable by, each indemnified party, his or her heirs and his or her Representatives and are in addition to, and not in substitution for, any other right to indemnification or contribution that any such Person may have by contract or otherwise.

(a)Each of the Buyer Parties shall use commercially reasonable efforts to complete, as promptly as practicable following the Closing, the filing, registration and other formalities with the competent commerce authority and market regulation authority in the PRC (the “China Regulatory Authorities”) as are reasonably necessary and required in order to increase the China Asset Buyer’s registered capital for the purpose of funding the Deferred China Asset Purchase Price in accordance with the Local China Purchase Agreement (such increase to capital, the “China Capital Infusion”).

The Stockholder shall indemnify, defend and hold the Buyer Parties and their respective directors, shareholders, officers, employees, agents, Affiliates, successors and permitted assigns harmless from and against any and all Losses arising out of, resulting from or relating to (a) any breach or non-fulfillment of any covenant or agreement made by the Stockholder under this Agreement, (b) any inaccuracy in, misrepresentation of, or breach of the representations and warranties of the Stockholder contained in Article IV (as modified by the Disclosure Schedules), (c) any Excluded Liability, (d) any Pre-Closing Taxes, (e) Transfer Taxes payable by the Seller Parties under Section 6.13(e), (f) the Pre-Closing Restructuring, or (g) any Assumed Liability within the meaning of such term in the Pre-Closing Restructuring Purchase Agreement (including any Losses relating to the Onondaga Lake Superfund Site).
Section 9.03    Indemnification of the Stockholder. The Buyer Parties shall, jointly and severally, indemnify, defend and hold the Stockholder and its directors, shareholders, officers, employees, agents, Affiliates, successors and permitted assigns harmless from and against any and all Losses arising out of, resulting from or relating to (a) any breach or non-fulfillment of any covenant or agreement made by the Buyer Parties under this Agreement, (b) any inaccuracy in, misrepresentation of, or breach of the representations and warranties of the Buyer Parties contained in Article V, (c) any Assumed Liability, (d) Transfer Taxes payable by the Buyer Parties under Section 6.13(e) and (e) any Post-Closing Taxes (except for Post-Closing Taxes arising out of or resulting from a breach by the

64



Stockholder of Sections 4.10, 6.01(b)(xiv), 6.01(b)(xx) or 6.13 of this Agreement for any Pre-Closing Tax Period or pre-Closing portion of a Straddle Period).
Section 9.04    Procedure.
(a)A Person seeking indemnification hereunder (other than in respect of a Contest to which Section 6.13 applies) (an “Indemnified Party”) shall give a written notice (a “Notice of Claim”) specifying the facts constituting the basis for its claim, and the applicable provision(s) of this Agreement upon which the Indemnified Party relies for its demand and a good faith estimate of the amount of the claim, to the Person(s) from whom indemnification is sought hereunder (an “Indemnifying Party”); provided, however, that any such Notice of Claim need only specify such information to the knowledge of the Indemnified Party as of the date of such Notice of Claim and shall not limit or prejudice any of the rights or remedies of any Indemnified Party on the basis of any limitations on the information included in such Notice of Claim, including any such limitations made in good faith to preserve the attorney‑client privilege, work product doctrine or any other privilege. If the claim is not a Third Party Claim, the Indemnifying Party shall have thirty (30) calendar days after delivery of the Notice of Claim to notify the Indemnified Party in writing of the nature and basis of its objection, if any, to the asserted claim for indemnification. If no such objection is received by the Indemnified Party within thirty (30) calendar days after delivery of the Notice of Claim, the claim shall be deemed to be allowed. If an objection is received by the Indemnified Party within thirty (30) calendar days after delivery of the Notice of Claim, the Parties shall resolve the dispute in accordance with Section 9.05.
(b)If an Indemnified Party is seeking indemnification because of a claim asserted by any claimant other than an Indemnified Party, the Indemnified Party shall deliver a Notice of Claim to the Indemnifying Party promptly after such assertion is actually known to the Indemnified Party; provided, however, that the right of a Person to be indemnified hereunder in respect of claims made or alleged by any such claimant (a “Third Party Claim”) (1) shall not be adversely affected by a failure to give such notice unless, and then only to the extent that, an Indemnifying Party is materially prejudiced thereby, and (2) shall not be deemed time-barred or otherwise unavailable until at least thirty (30) days have passed following such Indemnified Party’s receipt of any notice regarding the Proceeding giving rise to such Third Party Claim (and any statute of limitations or common law principle that limits or purports to limit the availability of such right to indemnification shall be deemed tolled, to the extent necessary, until such thirty (30) day period has ended).
(c)The Indemnifying Party shall have the right, upon written notice to the Indemnified Party, to assume and conduct the defense of the Third Party Claim with counsel reasonably acceptable to the Indemnified Party and the Indemnified Party shall cooperate in good faith in such defense; provided that: (i) the Third Party Claim solely seeks (and continues to solely seek) monetary damages in an amount not reasonably expected to exceed any limitation on the amount of Losses for which the Indemnifying Party is responsible hereunder; and (ii) no conflict of interest arises that, under applicable principles of legal ethics, in the judgment of counsel to the Indemnified Party, would prohibit a single counsel from representing both the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party in connection with the defense of such Third Party Claim. The Indemnified Party may thereafter

65



participate in (but not control) the defense of any such Third Party Claim with its own counsel at its own expense; provided, however, that if (A) any of the conditions described in clauses (i) or (ii) above fails to occur or ceases to be satisfied or (B) the Indemnifying Party fails to take reasonable steps necessary to defend diligently such Third Party Claim in the reasonable judgment of the Indemnified Party, then the Indemnified Party may assume its own defense, and the Indemnifying Party will be liable for all reasonable costs or expenses paid or incurred (including advancement thereof) in connection with such defense (subject to the limitations set forth herein).
(d)If the Indemnifying Party elects not to defend the Indemnified Party with respect to such Third Party Claim, or fails to notify the Indemnified Party of such election within ten (10) calendar days after receipt of the Notice of Claim, the Indemnified Party shall have the right, at its option, to assume and control defense of the matter in such manner as it may deem reasonably appropriate, and the Indemnifying Party will be liable for all reasonable costs or expenses paid or incurred (including advancement thereof) in connection with such defense (subject to the limitations set forth herein).
(e)The Indemnifying Party, if it has assumed the defense of any Third Party Claim as provided in this Agreement, may not, without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), consent to a settlement of, or the entry of any judgment arising from, any such Third Party Claim that (A) does not include as an unconditional term thereof the giving by the claimant or the plaintiff to the Indemnified Party of a complete release from all liability in respect of such Third Party Claim, (B) imposes any liability or obligation on the Indemnified Party that will not be fully indemnified by the Indemnifying Party pursuant hereto, (C) involves a finding or admission of any wrongdoing on the part of the Indemnified Party or (D) otherwise grants any injunctive or equitable relief. The Indemnified Party shall not have the right to settle any Third Party Claim, the defense of which has not been assumed by the Indemnifying Party or which is otherwise being defended by the Indemnified Party in accordance with the terms of this Section 9.04(e), without the prior written consent of the Indemnifying Party (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed).
(f)Each of the Parties shall, and shall cause their Affiliates (and their respective Representatives) to, make available to the other(s) all relevant information in his, her or its possession relating to any such Third Party Claim which is being defended by the other Party and shall otherwise reasonably cooperate in the defense thereof. The Indemnified Party or Indemnifying Party, as the case may be, that is controlling such defense shall keep the other Party reasonably advised of the status of such Proceeding and the defense thereof and shall consider in good faith (but shall not be bound to implement or adopt) any recommendations made by the other Party with respect thereto. The Indemnifying Party shall be subrogated to the rights and claims of the Indemnified Party with respect to any Losses paid by the Indemnifying Party under this Article IX.
(g)Tax Claims. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, this ýSection 9.04 shall not apply to the conduct of a Contest (and related claims in connection therewith), which shall be governed exclusively by Section 6.13.

66



Section 9.05    Determination of Claims; Payment. A claim for indemnification under this Article IX shall be deemed finally determined upon the occurrence of any of the following: (a) it is deemed allowed under Section 9.04(a); (b) entry of any final judgment or award rendered by a court of competent jurisdiction and the expiration of time in which to appeal therefrom; (c) full execution of a settlement of a Third Party Claim in the manner and in accordance with the provisions set forth in Section 9.04(b); or (d) the execution by the Indemnifying Party and Indemnified Party of a mutually binding settlement agreement with respect to a claim. The Indemnifying Party shall be required to pay all of the sums so owing in respect of such finally determined claim to the Indemnified Party by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account designated by the Indemnified Party within ten (10) Business Days after such final determination.
Section 9.06    Limitations on Indemnification.
(a)Except to the extent set forth in Section 9.06(c)(ii), the Stockholder shall not be required to provide indemnification for claims made under Section 9.02(b) unless the Indemnified Party’s Losses for all such claim(s) shall exceed an amount equal to one-half percent (0.5%) of the Net Proceeds, as finally determined in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.03 hereof, in the aggregate and then only to the extent that the Losses exceed an amount equal to one-half percent (0.5%) of the Net Proceeds, as finally determined in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.03 hereof (it being the intent of the Parties that the foregoing be in the nature of a deductible) (the “Deductible”); provided, however, that the Deductible shall not apply to any Losses arising out of, resulting from or relating to any inaccuracy in, misrepresentation of, or breach of the representations and warranties contained in Sections 4.01 (Organization, Qualification and Power), 4.02 (Authorization; Enforceability), 4.04 (Capitalization), 4.05 (No Brokers), 4.07(a) (Absence of Encumbrances), or 4.10 (Taxes).
(b)Except to the extent set forth in Section 9.06(c)(ii), in no event shall the aggregate liability of the Stockholder with respect to all claims of indemnification made under Section 9.02(b), exceed an amount equal to twelve and one-half percent (12.5%) of the Net Proceeds, as finally determined in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.03 hereof, in the aggregate (the “Cap”); provided, however, that the Cap shall not apply to any Losses arising out of, resulting from or relating to (i) any inaccuracy in, misrepresentation of, or breach of the representations and warranties contained in Sections 4.01 (Organization, Qualification and Power), 4.02 (Authorization; Enforceability), 4.04 (Capitalization), 4.05 (No Brokers), 4.07(a) (Absence of Encumbrances), 4.10 (Taxes), or 4.21 (China Purchased Assets) or (ii) Pre-Closing Taxes.
(c)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement:
(i)in no event shall the maximum liability of the Stockholder under this Article IX exceed the amount of the Net Proceeds;
(ii)the limitations set forth in Section 9.06(a), (b) and (c)(i) above shall not apply in the event that the Stockholder or any of its Affiliates or, with respect to

67



its activities prior to the Effective Time, any Acquired Company, is found to have committed fraud.
(iii)the Stockholder shall not be obligated to indemnify for Losses under this Article IX to the extent that such Losses were (A) accrued for or counted as a liability in the calculation of the Final Closing Working Capital or (B) otherwise reflected in the Settlement Amounts or an adjustment to the Net Proceeds in the manner contemplated in Section 2.03 hereof.
(d)For purposes of calculating the amount of Losses relating to a breach of any representation or warranty set forth in this Agreement (but not, for clarity, for purposes of determining whether a breach of any such representation or warranty has occurred for the purpose of Section 9.02 hereof), any qualification as to materiality or any other similar qualification or standard contained in Article IV of this Agreement shall be disregarded (it being understood that the word “Material” in the defined term “Material Contracts” and the qualification as to “Material Adverse Effect” in Section 4.12 shall not be disregarded for any purpose).
Section 9.07    Reductions for Insurance Proceeds and Other Recoveries.
(a)The amount that any Indemnifying Party is or may be required to pay to any Indemnified Party pursuant to this Article IX shall be reduced (retroactively or prospectively) to the extent of any insurance proceeds actually received by such Indemnified Party (net of deductibles or similar costs) in respect of such claim. The existence of a claim by an Indemnified Party for monies from an insurer or against a third party in respect of any Losses shall not, however, delay any payment pursuant to the indemnification provisions contained herein and otherwise determined to be due and owing by an Indemnifying Party. Rather, the Indemnifying Party shall make payment in full of the amount determined to be due and owing by it against an assignment by the Indemnified Party to the Indemnifying Party of the entire claim of the Indemnified Party for the insurance proceeds or against such third party. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Agreement, it is the intention of the Parties that no insurer or any other third party shall be (i) entitled to a benefit it would not be entitled to receive in the absence of the foregoing indemnification provisions, or (ii) relieved of the responsibility to pay any claims for which it is obligated. If an Indemnified Party has received the payment required by this Agreement from an Indemnifying Party in respect of any Losses and later receives insurance proceeds or other amounts in respect of such Losses, then such Indemnified Party shall hold such insurance proceeds or other amounts in trust for the benefit of the Indemnifying Party and shall pay to the Indemnifying Party, as promptly as practicable after receipt, a sum equal to the amount of such insurance proceeds or other amounts received, up to the aggregate amount of any payments received from the Indemnifying Party pursuant to this Agreement in respect of such Losses (or, if there is more than one Indemnifying Party, the Indemnified Party shall pay each Indemnifying Party its proportionate share (based on payments received from the Indemnifying Parties of such insurance proceeds)).
(b)Any calculation of Losses for purposes of this Article IX shall be reduced to take account of any net Tax benefit actually realized by the Indemnified Party as a result of any such Losses in the taxable year in which the indemnity payment is made

68



in respect of the relevant claim. Any payment hereunder shall initially be made without regard to this Section 9.07(b) and shall be reduced to reflect any such net Tax benefit only after the Indemnified Party has actually realized such benefit. For purposes of this Agreement, the Indemnified Party shall be deemed to have “actually realized” a net Tax benefit to the extent that, and at such time as, the amount of Taxes required to be paid by the Indemnified Party is reduced below the amount of Taxes that it would have been required to pay but for deductibility of such Losses (treating any Tax items attributable to such Losses as the last items claimed for any taxable period). The amount of any reduction hereunder shall be adjusted to reflect any final determination with respect to the Indemnified Party’s liability for Taxes.
Section 9.08    Duty to Mitigate. Each Party agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to mitigate any Losses which form the basis for any claim under this Article IX; provided that the Indemnified Party shall not be obligated to make an insurance claim on its own policies if such claim would reasonably result in an increase in premiums.
Section 9.09    Sole and Exclusive Remedy. The remedies provided in this Article IX shall be the sole and exclusive remedies of the Parties and their respective officers, directors, employees, Affiliates, agents, Representatives, successors and assigns for any and all Losses arising out of, relating to, or resulting from, any breach of any of the representations, warranties, covenants and agreements contained in this Agreement and any other agreement, instrument or document executed and delivered in connection herewith, or otherwise relating to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement; provided, however, that nothing herein is intended to waive or otherwise limit any claims for Losses arising out of, relating to, or resulting from fraud, or waive any equitable remedies to which a Party may be entitled.
ARTICLE X
MISCELLANEOUS
Section 10.01    Expenses. Except for the Seller Antitrust Fees (for which the Stockholder will reimburse Buyer at the Closing), each of the Parties shall bear its respective expenses incurred or to be incurred in connection with the execution and delivery of this Agreement and the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents.
Section 10.02    No Assignment. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Party to this Agreement may assign its rights or delegate its obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of (a) Buyer, in the event of an assignment or delegation by the Stockholder, or (b) the Stockholder, in the event of an assignment or delegation by any Buyer Party; provided that any Party, may, without the consent of any other Party, (x) assign any or all of its rights and interests hereunder to one or more of its Affiliates, and/or (y) designate one or more of its Affiliates to perform its obligations under this Agreement; provided, however that no such assignment shall relieve such Party of its obligations hereunder. Any assignment or delegation in contravention of this Section 10.02 shall be null and void and of no force and effect.

69



Section 10.03    Entire Agreement, Integration, Modification and Waiver. This Agreement (including all Exhibits and Schedules attached hereto which are hereby incorporated herein and made a part of this Agreement as if set forth in full herein), together with the other Transaction Documents and the certificates or other instruments delivered hereunder or thereunder, constitutes the entire agreement among the Parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior understandings of the Parties with respect to the subject matter hereof (including, for greater certainty, that certain Non-Binding Memorandum of Understanding, entered between the Stockholder and Buyer on December 4, 2017 and the Confidentiality Agreement, except to the extent incorporated herein). No supplement, modification or amendment of this Agreement will be binding unless executed in writing by Buyer (on behalf of all Buyer Parties) and the Stockholder. No waiver of any of the provisions of this Agreement will be deemed to be or shall constitute a continuing waiver. No waiver will be binding unless executed in writing by the Party making the waiver.
Section 10.04    Headings. The headings and captions contained in this Agreement are included for purposes of convenience only, and will not affect the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement.
Section 10.05    Construction. The Parties have participated jointly in the negotiation and drafting of this Agreement. In the event an ambiguity or question of intent or interpretation arises, this Agreement must be construed as if drafted jointly by the Parties and no presumption or burden of proof will arise favoring or disfavoring any Party by virtue of the authorship of any of the provisions of this Agreement. Any reference to any federal, state, local or non-U.S. statute or Law will be deemed also to refer to all rules and regulations promulgated under such Law, unless the context requires otherwise. Whenever the words “include,” “includes” or “including” are used in this Agreement, they shall be deemed to be followed by the words “without limitation,” whether or not they are, in fact, followed by those words or words of like import. Terms defined in the singular shall include the plural and vice versa. The words “hereof,” “herein” and “hereunder” and words of like import used in this Agreement shall refer to this Agreement as a whole and not to any particular provision of this Agreement. References to Articles, Sections, Exhibits and Schedules are to Articles, Sections, Exhibits and Schedules of this Agreement unless otherwise specified. All references to “$” or dollar amounts are to lawful currency of the United States of America.
Section 10.06    Severability. Any term or provision of this Agreement that is invalid or unenforceable in any jurisdiction will, as to that jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity or unenforceability without rendering invalid or unenforceable the remaining terms and provisions of this Agreement or affecting the validity or enforceability of any of the terms or provisions of this Agreement in any other jurisdiction. If any provision of this Agreement is so broad as to be unenforceable, the provision will be interpreted to be only so broad as is enforceable.
Section 10.07    No Third Party Beneficiaries. Except as set forth in Section 6.16, this Agreement will not confer any rights or remedies upon any Person (including employees, consultants or contractors of any Acquired Company or any Seller Party except to the extent such Person is a Party hereto) other than the Parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns.

Section 10.10    Jurisdiction; Venue, Waiver of Jury Trial.
(a)Each of the Parties hereby irrevocably and unconditionally submits, for itself and/or its property, to the exclusive jurisdiction of any New York state court or federal court of the United States of America sitting in the District of New York, and any appellate court from any thereof, in any Proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the negotiation, execution or performance of this Agreement or for recognition or enforcement of any judgment, and each of the Parties hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees (i) that all claims in respect of any such Proceeding may be heard and determined in any such New York state court or, to the extent permitted by Law, in such federal court, (ii) that a final judgment in any such Proceeding shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by Law, (iii) not to attempt to deny or defeat such jurisdiction by motion or other request for leave from such New York state court or federal court, and (iv) not to bring or support any Proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any of the transaction contemplated by this Agreement (whether in contract, tort, common or statutory law, equity or otherwise) anywhere other than such New York state court or federal court. For the avoidance of doubt, the preceding sentence shall not limit the jurisdiction of the Independent Accountant as set forth in Section 2.03 and shall include any Proceeding brought for the purpose of enforcing the jurisdiction and judgments of the Independent Accountant.
(b)Each of the Parties irrevocably and unconditionally waives, to the fullest extent it may legally and effectively do so, any objection that it may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any Proceeding arising out of or relating to the Agreement in any New York state or federal court. Each of the Parties irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by Law, the defense of an inconvenient forum to the maintenance of such Proceeding in any such court.
(c)EACH OF THE PARTIES HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, ANY AND ALL RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY PROCEEDING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OF THE OTHER TRANSACTION DOCUMENTS OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY OR THEREBY. EACH OF THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGES THAT HE, SHE OR IT AND THE OTHER PARTIES HERETO HAVE BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT AND THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS CONTAINED IN THIS SECTION 10.10(C).

This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, and counterparts may be exchanged by electronic transmission (including in PDF format), each of which will be deemed an original, but all of which together constitute one and the same instrument.

72



Section 10.12    Releases. As of the Closing, (a) each of the Buyer Parties and their respective Subsidiaries (including, as of immediately following the Closing, the Acquired Companies) (each, a “Releasing Buyer Person”), hereby releases and forever discharges the Stockholder, the China Asset Seller and each of their respective Affiliates, successors, assigns, former, current or future direct or indirect stockholders, equity holders, controlling persons, directors, officers, employees, incorporators, managers, members, trustees, general or limited partners, agents, attorneys or other Representatives (in each case, solely in their capacities as such) (each, a “Released Seller Person”) from all debts, intercompany receivables and payables, demands, causes of action, suits, covenants, torts, damages and any and all claims, defenses, offsets, judgments, demands and liabilities whatsoever, of every name and nature, both at law and in equity, known or unknown, accrued or unaccrued, that have been or could have been asserted against any Released Seller Person, that any Releasing Buyer Person has or ever had, that arises out of or in any way relates to events, circumstances or actions occurring, existing or taken prior to or as of the Closing Date in respect of matters relating to the Acquired Companies, the Purchased Assets or the Assumed Liabilities, and (b) each of the Stockholder, the China Asset Seller and their respective Subsidiaries (each, a “Releasing Seller Person”), hereby releases and forever discharges each Buyer Party and each of their respective Affiliates (including, as of immediately following the Closing, the Acquired Companies), successors, assigns, former, current or future direct or indirect stockholders, equity holders, controlling persons, directors, officers, employees, incorporators, managers, members, trustees, general or limited partners, agents, attorneys or other Representatives (in each case, solely in their capacities as such) (each, a “Released Buyer Person”) from all debts, intercompany receivables and payables, demands, causes of action, suits, covenants, torts, damages and any and all claims, defenses, offsets, judgments, demands and liabilities whatsoever, of every name and nature, both at law and in equity, known or unknown, accrued or unaccrued, that have been or could have been asserted against any Released Buyer Person, that any Releasing Seller Person has or ever had, that arises out of or in any way relates to events, circumstances or actions occurring, existing or taken prior to or as of the Closing Date in respect of matters relating to the Acquired Companies, the Purchased Assets or the Assumed Liabilities; provided, however, that the Parties acknowledge and agree that this ýSection 10.12 does not apply to and shall not constitute a release of any rights or obligations to the extent arising from or under (i) commercial receivables and payables to third parties, (ii) this Agreement, (iii) any of the Transaction Documents, or (iv) any certificate or other instrument delivered by or on behalf of either Party pursuant to this Agreement.
Section 10.13    Disclaimer of Warranties. The Stockholder makes no representations or warranties with respect to any projections, forecasts or forward-looking information provided to any Buyer Party or any of their respective Affiliates. EXCEPT FOR THE REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES IN THIS AGREEMENT, ANY OTHER TRANSACTION DOCUMENT OR ANY CERTIFICATE DELIVERED HEREUNDER OR ANY OTHER AGREEMENT CONTEMPLATED HEREBY OR THEREBY, THE SELLER PARTIES ARE SELLING THE BUSINESS, THE PURCHASED ASSETS AND THE SUSA SHARES, IN EACH CASE, ON AN “AS IS, WHERE IS” BASIS AND THE SELLER PARTIES DISCLAIM ALL OTHER

73



WARRANTIES, REPRESENTATIONS AND GUARANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AND THE SELLER PARTIES MAKE NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY AS TO MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NO IMPLIED WARRANTIES WHATSOEVER. Except as specifically referenced in this Agreement, any Transaction Documents or any certificate delivered hereunder or in the Disclosure Schedules, the Buyer Parties acknowledge that neither the Stockholder, nor any of its Representatives or Affiliates or any other Person, has made any representation or warranty, express or implied, as to the accuracy or completeness of any diligence materials heretofore made available by the Stockholder or any of its Representatives or Affiliates to the Buyer Parties, and neither the Stockholder nor any of its Representatives or Affiliates or any other Person will have or be subject to any liability to any Buyer Party, any Affiliate of any Buyer Party or any other Person resulting from the distribution of any such information to, or use of any such information by, any Buyer Party, any Affiliate of any Buyer Party or any of their respective agents, consultants, accountants, counsel or other Representatives, except any information provided by the Seller Parties, the Acquired Companies or any of their respective Affiliates, employees or Representatives constituting fraud.
Section 10.14    Certain Matters Regarding Representation of Acquired Companies and the Stockholder.
(a)The internal general counsel’s office of the Stockholder, in concert with certain outside counsel, including Nixon Peabody LLP (such general counsel’s office and outside counsel, collectively, “Sellers’ Counsel”), has acted as counsel for the Stockholder and its Affiliates, including the Acquired Companies (the “Clients”) for various matters prior to the Closing, including in connection with this Agreement, Transaction Documents and the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby (the “Pre-Closing Engagements”) and not as counsel for any other Person, including any Buyer Party or any of their respective Affiliates. Only the Clients shall be considered clients of Sellers’ Counsel in the Pre-Closing Engagements. Accordingly, notwithstanding that the Clients are or were clients in the Pre-Closing Engagements, upon and after the Closing, all communications between any of the Clients and Sellers’ Counsel in the course of the Pre-Closing Engagements shall be deemed to be attorney‑client confidences that belong solely to the Stockholder and not to any Buyer Party or any of their respective Affiliates (including, after the Closing, the Acquired Companies), in each case so long as such communications would be subject to a privilege or protection if they were being requested in a Proceeding by an unrelated third party. The Buyer Parties and their respective Affiliates (including, after the Closing, the Acquired Companies) shall not have access to any such communications, or to the files of Sellers’ Counsel relating to the Pre-Closing Engagements. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, notwithstanding that the Acquired Companies are or were clients of Sellers’ Counsel in the Pre-Closing Engagements, upon and after the Closing (except with respect to any communications that would not be subject to a privilege or protection if they were being requested in a Proceeding by an unrelated third party), (i) the Stockholder and its Affiliates shall be the sole holders of the attorney-client privilege with respect to the Pre-Closing Engagements, and none of the Acquired Companies, the Buyer Parties or any of their respective Affiliates shall be a holder thereof, (ii) to the extent that files of Sellers’

74



Counsel in respect of the Pre-Closing Engagements constitute property of the Clients (including any Acquired Company), only the Stockholder and its Affiliates (excluding, for the avoidance of doubt, any Acquired Company) shall hold such property rights, and (iii) Sellers’ Counsel shall have no duty whatsoever to reveal or disclose any such attorney-client communications or files to any Acquired Company, any Buyer Party or any of their respective Affiliates by reason of any attorney-client relationship between Sellers’ Counsel and any Acquired Company or otherwise.
(b)Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Parties recognize that it would be impracticable to try to purge all Client-privileged communications from the Acquired Companies’ files and computer systems prior to the Closing, and so the Parties agree that no waiver is intended by leaving such documents where they are and the Buyer Parties and their respective Affiliates shall not be permitted to review any such documents, and the Buyer Parties agree that they and their respective Affiliates shall not be permitted to use any such documents in a manner adverse to the Stockholder in any indemnity or other dispute following the Closing.
