NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises, representations, warranties and the mutual covenants contained in this Agreement, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt, sufficiency and adequacy of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto, intending to be legally bound, hereby agree as follows:


Section 1. Assignment of Securities. The GP Sponsor hereby sells, assigns and transfers to each Recipient, and each Recipient hereby purchases, the relevant Shares from the GP Sponsor as set forth on Annex II hereto, for the purchase price set forth next to the relevant Recipient’s name in Annex II hereto.


Section 2. Owner.

No person has any written or oral agreement, arrangement or understanding or option for, or any right or privilege (whether by law, preemption or contract) that is or is capable of becoming an agreement, arrangement or understanding or option for, the purchase or acquisition from the GP Sponsor of any of the Shares.



Section 3. No Conflicts. Each party represents and warrants that neither the execution and delivery of this Agreement by such party, nor the consummation or performance by such party of any of the transactions’ contemplated hereby, will with or without notice or lapse of time, constitute, create or result in a breach or violation of, default under, loss of benefit or right under or acceleration of performance of any obligation required under any agreement to which it is a party.


Section 4. Representations. Each of the Recipients represents and warrants, severally and not jointly, as follows, with respect to herself/himself: the Recipient hereby acknowledges that an investment in the Shares involves certain significant risks. The Recipient acknowledges and hereby agrees that the Shares will not be transferable under any circumstances unless the Shares are registered in accordance with federal and state securities laws or an exemption under such laws is available. The Recipient further acknowledges and hereby agrees that the Shares are subject to restrictions and obligations as set forth in the Subscription Agreement, that portion of such Recipient’s Shares (in an amount as indicated on Annex II hereto) are subject to forfeiture pursuant to the forfeiture provision contained in Section 3.1 thereto, and the Insider Letter to be entered into among the Company, the GP Sponsor, IDS III LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, and the other parties thereto, substantially in the form attached as Annex III hereto, and the lock-up provisions therein. The Recipient further understands that any certificates evidencing the Shares bear a legend (as provided in the Subscription Agreement) referring to the foregoing transfer restrictions. The Shares are being assigned solely for the Recipient’s own account, for investment purposes only, and are not being assigned with a view to or for the resale, distribution, subdivision or fractionalization thereof; and the Recipient has no present plans to enter into any contract, undertaking, agreement or arrangement for such resale, distribution, subdivision or fractionalization. The Recipient is able to bear the risk of its investment for an indefinite period of time. The Recipient has been given the opportunity to (i) ask questions of and receive answers from the GP Sponsor and the Company concerning the terms and conditions of the Shares, and the business and financial condition of the Company and (ii) obtain any additional information that the GP Sponsor possesses or can acquire without unreasonable effort or expense that is necessary to assist the Recipient in evaluating the advisability of the receipt of the Shares and an investment in the Company. The Recipient is not relying on any oral representation made by any person as to the Company or its operations, financial condition or prospects. The Recipient is an “accredited investor” as defined in Regulation D promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.


Section 5. Waiver of Additional Shares. Each Recipient hereby waives its right to receive additional Class B ordinary shares as a result of any capitalization or other appropriate mechanism undertaken by the Company in connection with its initial public offering in order to maintain the number of outstanding Class B ordinary shares at 20% of the Company’s outstanding ordinary shares upon the consummation of its initial public offering.

Section 7. Survival of Representations, Warranties. All agreements, representations and warranties made herein shall survive the execution and delivery of this Agreement. All representations and warranties shall be effective regardless of any investigation made or which could have been made.

If any Recipient or ceases to be a director of the Company for any reason whatsoever before a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination involving the Company and one or more businesses, all of such Recipient’s Shares shall be, at the GP Sponsor’s election, either (a) repurchased by the GP Sponsor (or its designee) at the purchase price such Recipient paid for those Shares, as set forth on Annex II, or (b) forfeited to the Company for no consideration.


Section 9. Governing Law. This Agreement and the rights and obligations of the parties hereunder shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of New York applicable to contracts wholly performed within the borders of such state.
