This Agreement and each other Transaction Document to which it is a party has been (or upon delivery will have been) duly executed and delivered by the Company.

such conflicts, defaults, terminations, amendments, accelerations, cancellations and violations as would not, individually or in the aggregate, have or reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

It is accordingly agreed that the parties shall be entitled to seek an injunction or
injunctions to prevent or cure breaches of the provisions of this Agreement and to enforce specifically the terms and provisions hereof, this being in addition to any other remedy to which any of them may be entitled by law or equity.
(b) Each of the Company and the Purchasers (i) hereby irrevocably submits to the jurisdiction of the United States District Court sitting in the Southern District of New York and the courts of the State of New York located in New York County for the purposes of any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby and (ii) hereby waives, and agrees not to assert in any such suit, action or proceeding, any claim that it is not personally subject to the jurisdiction of such court, that the suit, action or proceeding is brought in an inconvenient forum or that the venue of the suit, action or proceeding is improper. Each of the Company and the Purchasers consents to process being served in any such suit, action or proceeding by mailing a copy thereof to such party at the address in effect for notices to it under this Agreement and agrees that such service shall constitute good and sufficient service of process and notice thereof. Nothing in this Section 4.03 shall affect or limit any right to serve process in any other manner permitted by law.
Section 4.04 Entire Agreement; Amendment. The Transaction Documents, together with the exhibits and schedules thereto, the Prospectus and the Prospectus Supplement, contain the entire understanding and agreement of the parties with respect to the matters covered hereby and thereby and, except as specifically set forth herein, neither the Company nor any of the Purchasers makes any representations, warranty, covenant or undertaking with respect to such matters and they supersede all prior understandings and agreements with respect to said subject matter, all of which are merged into such documents, exhibits and schedules. No provision of this Agreement may be waived or amended other than by a written instrument signed by the Company and the Purchasers holding a majority of the Shares then outstanding and held by Purchasers. No such amendment shall be effective to the extent that it applies to less than all of the holders of the Shares then outstanding.

Any party hereto may from time to time change its address for notices by giving at least ten (10) days written notice of such changed address to the other party hereto. To the extent that any notice provided pursuant to any Transaction Document constitutes, or contains, material, non-public information regarding the Company or any
Subsidiaries, the Company shall simultaneously file such notice with the Commission pursuant to a Current Report on Form 8-K.
Section 4.06 Waivers. No waiver by either party of any default with respect to any provision, condition or requirement of this Agreement shall be deemed to be a continuing waiver in the future or a waiver of any other provisions, condition or requirement hereof, nor shall any delay or omission of any party to exercise any right hereunder in any manner impair the exercise of any such right accruing to it thereafter.
Section 4.07 Headings. The article, section and subsection headings in this Agreement are for convenience only and shall not constitute a part of this Agreement for any other purpose and shall not be deemed to limit or affect any of the provisions hereof.
Section 4.08 Successors and Assigns; Restrictions on Transfer. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties and their successors and assigns. The Company may not assign this Agreement or any rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of the Purchasers. Any Purchaser may assign any or all of its rights under this Agreement to any Person to whom such Purchaser assigns or transfers any Shares, provided that such transferee agrees in writing to be bound, with respect to the transferred Shares, by the provisions of the Transaction Documents that apply to the “Purchasers.”
Section 4.09 No Third Party Beneficiaries. This Agreement is intended for the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective permitted successors and assigns and is not for the benefit of, nor may any provision hereof be enforced by, any other person.
Section 4.10 Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of New York, without giving effect to any of the conflicts of law principles which would result in the application of the substantive law of another jurisdiction. This Agreement shall not be interpreted or construed with any presumption against the party causing this Agreement to be drafted. Each party hereby irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any and all rights to a trial by jury in any legal proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby.
Section 4.11 Survival. The representations and warranties of the Company and the Purchasers shall survive the execution and delivery of the Shares hereof and the Closing hereunder for the applicable statute of limitations period.
Section 4.12 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which when so executed shall be deemed to be an original and, all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same Agreement and shall become effective when counterparts have been signed by each party and delivered to the other parties hereto, it being understood that all parties need not sign the same counterpart. In the event that any signature is delivered by facsimile transmission or by e-mail delivery of a “.pdf” format data file, such signature shall create a valid binding obligation of the party executing (or on whose behalf such signature is executed) the same with the same force and effect as if such facsimile or “.pdf” signature page were an original thereof.
Section 4.13 Severability. The provisions of this Agreement are severable and, in the event that any court of competent jurisdiction shall determine that any one or more of the provisions or part of the provisions contained in this Agreement shall, for any reason, be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect any other provision or part of a provision of this Agreement and such provision shall be reformed and construed as if such invalid or illegal or unenforceable provision, or part of such provision, had never been contained herein, so that such provisions would be valid, legal and enforceable to the maximum extent possible.
Section 4.14 Further Assurances. From and after the date of this Agreement, upon the request of any Purchaser or the Company, each of the Company and the Purchasers shall execute and deliver such instrument, documents and other writings as may be reasonably necessary or desirable to confirm and carry out and to effectuate fully the intent and purposes of this Agreement.
Section 4.15 Like Treatment of Purchasers. No consideration shall be offered or paid to any Purchaser to amend or consent to a waiver or modification of any provision of this Agreement unless the same consideration is also offered to all of the Purchasers then holding Shares. Further, the Company shall not make any payments or issue any securities to the Purchasers in amounts which are disproportionate to the respective numbers of outstanding Shares held by any Purchasers at any applicable time. For clarification purposes, this provision constitutes a separate right granted to each Purchaser by the Company and negotiated separately by each Purchaser, and is intended for the Company to treat the Purchasers as a class and shall not in any way be construed as the Purchasers acting in concert or as a group with respect to the purchase, disposition or voting of the Shares or otherwise.
