7.12 Construction. In construing this Agreement, including the exhibits and schedules hereto, the following principles shall be followed: (i) the terms herein, hereof, hereby, hereunder and other similar terms refer to this Agreement as a whole and not only to the particular Article, Section or other subdivision in which any such terms may be employed; (ii) except as otherwise set forth herein, references to Articles, Sections, schedules and exhibits refer to the Articles, Sections, schedules and exhibits of this Agreement, which are incorporated in and made a part of this Agreement; (iii) a reference to any Person shall include such Persons predecessors; (iv) unless the context otherwise requires, all accounting terms not otherwise defined herein have the meanings assigned to them in accordance with GAAP consistently applied; (v) no consideration shall be given to the headings of the Articles, Sections, schedules, exhibits, subdivisions, subsections or clauses, which are inserted for convenience in locating the provisions of this Agreement and not as an aid in its construction; (vi) the word includes and including and their syntactical variants mean includes, but is not limited to and including, without limitation, and corresponding syntactical variant expressions; (vii) a defined term has its defined meaning throughout this Agreement, regardless of whether it appears before or after the place in this Agreement where it is defined, including in any schedule or exhibit; (viii) the word dollar and the symbol $ refer to the lawful currency of the United States of America; (ix) the plural shall be deemed to include the singular and vice versa; (x) unless the context of this Agreement clearly requires otherwise, words importing the masculine gender shall include the feminine and neutral genders and vice versa and (xi) obligations of Seller under this Agreement shall be deemed to be joint and several obligations hereunder unless the Agreement explicitly provides otherwise.

extraordinary character and that, in the event that any Party violates or fails or refuses to perform any covenant or agreement made by it in this Agreement, the non-breaching party may be without an adequate remedy at Law. The Parties agree, therefore, that in the event that any Party violates or fails or refuses to perform any covenant or agreement made by such Party in this Agreement, the non-breaching Party or Parties may, subject to the terms of this Agreement and in addition to any remedies at Law for damages or other relief, institute and prosecute an action in any court of competent jurisdiction to enforce specific performance of such covenant or agreement or seek any other equitable relief (without any requirement to post bond).
