Any such vote shall be cast (or consent shall be given) by Stockholder in accordance with such procedures relating thereto so as to ensure that it is duly counted, including for purposes of determining that a quorum is present and for purposes of recording the results of such vote (or consent).
(b) Proxy. Each Stockholder hereby irrevocably appoints as its proxy and attorney-in-fact, the Company and any Person designated in writing by the Company, each of them individually, with full power of substitution and resubstitution, to vote the Stockholder Shares (in a manner consistent with the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation) owned by such Stockholder in accordance with Section 1(a) at any meeting of the stockholders of the Company however called (or any action by written consent in lieu of a meeting) or any adjournment or postponement thereof, prior to the termination of this Agreement in accordance with Section 3, at which any of the matters described in Section 1(a) is to be considered; provided, however, that such Stockholder’s grant of the proxy contemplated by this Section 1(b) shall be effective if, and only if, such Stockholder fails to be counted as present, to consent or to vote such Stockholder Shares, as applicable, in accordance with this Agreement or has not delivered to the Secretary of the Company at least three (3) business days prior to the meeting at which any of the matters described in Section 1(a) is to be considered a duly executed irrevocable proxy card in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Company directing that the Stockholder Shares of such Stockholder be voted in accordance with Section 1(a).

Notwithstanding the foregoing (but subject to the following sentence), each Stockholder and its Affiliates may Transfer any or all of its Stockholder Shares to its Affiliates, including, without limitation, to Parent, or in accordance with and pursuant to the Gato Letter Agreement (in any case in a manner consistent with the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation); provided, that prior to and as a condition to the effectiveness of such Transfer, each Person to whom any of such Stockholder Shares or any interest in any of such Shares is or may be transferred shall have executed and delivered to the Company a counterpart of this Agreement pursuant to which such Person shall be bound by all of the terms and provisions of this Agreement and Exhibit A shall be updated accordingly.

2. Representations and Warranties of Stockholder. Each Stockholder hereby represents and warrants to the Company as follows:
(a) Authority. Such Stockholder has all necessary power and authority to execute and deliver this Agreement and to perform its obligations under this Agreement.

The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by such Stockholder does not, and the consummation by such Stockholder of the transactions contemplated hereby will not, result in a violation or breach of, or constitute (with or without due notice or lapse of time or both) a default (or give rise to any right of termination, cancellation, modification or acceleration) (whether after the giving of notice or the passage of time or both) under any contract, agreement, arrangement or commitment to which such Stockholder is a party or which is binding on it or its assets and will not result in the creation of any Lien on any of the assets or properties of such Stockholder (other than the Stockholder Shares pursuant to the terms of this Agreement), except for such violations, breaches, defaults, terminations, cancellations, modifications, accelerations or Liens as would not reasonably be expected to prevent or delay the performance by such Stockholder of any of its obligations under this Agreement.
(c) If the Stockholder is not a natural person, (a) the Stockholder is duly organized, validly existing and in good standing in accordance with the laws of its jurisdiction of formation, as applicable, and (b) the execution and delivery of this Agreement, the performance of the Stockholder’s obligations hereunder, and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby have been validly authorized, and no other consents or authorizations are required to give effect to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

Without limiting the foregoing, as of the date hereof, except for restrictions in favor of the Company pursuant to this Agreement and subject to the terms of the Gato LPA and the Gato Letter Agreement (as defined below), each of the Stockholders has sole voting power and sole power of disposition with respect to all Stockholder Shares, with no restrictions on Stockholder’s rights of voting or disposition pertaining thereto and no Person other than Stockholder has any right to direct or approve the voting or disposition of any Stockholder Shares.

(m) Governing Law; Enforcement; Jurisdiction; Waiver of Jury Trial.
(i) This Agreement shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Delaware, regardless of the laws that might otherwise govern under any applicable principles of conflicts of laws thereof.

(iii) The parties acknowledge and agree that irreparable damage would occur in the event that any of the provisions of this Agreement were not performed in accordance with their specific terms or were otherwise breached, and that monetary damages, even if available, would not be an adequate remedy therefor.

The parties further agree not to assert that a remedy of specific performance is unenforceable, invalid, contrary to law or inequitable for any reason, nor to assert that remedy of monetary damages would provide an adequate remedy for any such breach.
(iv) In addition, each of the parties hereto (i) consents to submit itself to the personal jurisdiction of any Delaware state court or any federal court located in the State of Delaware in the event any dispute arises out of this Agreement, the Merger Agreement, the Transactions or any of the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, (ii) agrees that it will not attempt to deny or defeat such personal jurisdiction by motion or other request for leave from any such court and (iii) agrees that it will not bring any action relating to this Agreement, the Merger Agreement, the Transactions or any of the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement in any court other than any Delaware state court or any federal court sitting in the State of Delaware (except for actions brought to enforce the judgment of any such Delaware court).
(n) No Ownership Interest. All rights and ownership of and relating to the Stockholder Shares shall remain vested in and belong to each Stockholder and its Subsidiaries and its Affiliates, and the Company will not have any authority to exercise any power or authority to direct any Stockholder in the voting of any Stockholder Shares, except as otherwise specifically provided herein.
(o) Non-Recourse. This Agreement may only be enforced against, and any claims or causes of action that may be based upon, arise out of or relate to this Agreement, or the negotiation, execution or performance of this Agreement may only be made against the entities that are expressly identified as parties hereto and no former, current or future equity holders, controlling persons, directors, officers, employees, agents or Affiliates of any party hereto or any former, current or future stockholder, controlling person, director, officer, employee, general or limited partner, member, manager, agent or Affiliate of any of the foregoing (each, a “Non-Recourse Party”) shall have any liability for any obligations or liabilities of the parties to this Agreement or for any claim (whether in tort, contract or otherwise) based on, in respect of, or by reason of, the transactions contemplated hereby or in respect of any representations made or alleged to be made in connection herewith. Without limiting the rights of any party against the other parties hereto, in no event shall any party or any of its Affiliates seek to enforce this Agreement against, make any claims for breach of this Agreement against, or seek to recover monetary damages from, any Non-Recourse Party.
