(b) Upon receipt of notice of any claim, suit, action or legal proceeding by a third party for which indemnification might be claimed by an Indemnified Party (a “Third-Party Claim”), the Indemnifying Party shall be entitled to defend, contest or otherwise protect against the Third-Party Claim at its own cost and expense, by providing written notice to the Indemnified Party of such election within thirty (30) days after the Indemnified Party receives a Claim Notice with respect to such Third-Party Claim, and the Indemnified Party must cooperate in any such defense or other action; provided, that the Indemnifying Party may not control the defense of any Third-Party Claim that is criminal in nature or that seeks non-monetary equitable relief that would reasonably be expected to be material to the Indemnified Party if adversely determined. The Indemnified Party shall have the right, but not the obligation, to participate at its own expense in defense thereof by counsel of its own choosing, but the Indemnifying Party shall be entitled to control the defense unless the Indemnifying Party does not elect to assume defense of the Third-Party Claim, is not entitled under this Section 6.4 to control the defense of the Third-Party Claim or fails to competently conduct the defense of such Third-Party Claim. If the Indemnifying Party undertakes the defense of a Third-Party Claim, the Indemnified Party shall not, so long as the Indemnifying Party competently conducts the defense thereof, be entitled to recover from the Indemnifying Party any legal or other expenses subsequently incurred by the Indemnified Party in connection with the defense thereof, except (i) where separate representation is necessary, in the reasonable opinion of counsel to the Indemnified Party, to avoid a conflict of interest that cannot be waived such that representation of both parties by the same counsel would violate processional standards of conduct for attorneys in the jurisdiction where the Indemnifying Party’s counsel is practicing on behalf of the Indemnifying Party, or (ii) reasonable costs of investigation undertaken by the Indemnified Party with the prior written consent of the Indemnifying Party. If the Indemnifying Party assumes the defense of a Third-Party Claim, no compromise or settlement of the Third-Party Claim may be effected by the Indemnifying Party without the Indemnified Party’s consent (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed). In the event the Indemnifying Party does not elect to assume control of the Third-Party Claim or otherwise is not entitled to control such Third-Party Claim in accordance with this Section 6.4, the Indemnified Party shall have the right, but not the obligation, thereafter to defend, contest or otherwise protect against the same and make any compromise or settlement thereof and recover the entire cost thereof from the Indemnifying Party including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees, disbursements and all amounts paid as a result of such Third-Party Claim or the compromise or settlement thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Indemnified Party may not compromise or settle any Third-Party Claim without the prior written consent of the Indemnifying Party (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned).
Section 6.5 Tax Treatment of Indemnification Payments. All indemnification payments made under this Agreement shall be treated by the parties as an adjustment to the Purchase Price for tax purposes, unless otherwise required by law.

(ii) any of the conditions set forth in Article I shall not have been fulfilled by the Drop Dead Date, unless such failure shall be due to the failure of Sellers to perform or comply with any of the covenants, agreements or conditions hereof to be performed or complied with by it prior to the Closing; or
(d) by Buyer or Sellers in the event that:
