WHEREAS, the parties hereto (“Parties”) are each a party to the Purchase and Assumption Agreement, dated as of April 4, 2019 (the “Agreement”); and
WHEREAS, the Parties desire to amend the Agreement as set forth herein.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual agreements contained herein, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the Parties, intending to be legally bound, agree as follows:
1.Definitions. Capitalized terms used herein but not defined herein shall have the meanings set forth in the Agreement, as amended hereby.

2.Amendment to Section 5.15(a). Section 5.15(a) of the Agreement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

If and only if the Retention Reduction to Purchase Price is greater than zero, then promptly following the first anniversary of the Initial Closing, Purchaser shall deliver to Seller a statement setting forth its good faith calculation of Trailing Total Volume along with reasonable supporting documentation related thereto. In the event that Seller disputes Purchaser’s calculation of Trailing Total Volume, Seller shall notify Purchaser and the Parties shall work in good faith for a period up to thirty (30) days to resolve any discrepancies or disagreements. In the event that the Parties are unable to resolve any such discrepancies or disagreements during such thirty (30) day period, the Parties shall submit the matter to the Independent Accountant in accordance with the process contemplated by Section 2.4. In the event that the Trailing Total Volume is equal to or greater than 65% of the Total Volume, Purchaser shall pay to Seller, by wire transfer of immediately available funds, an amount equal to fifty percent (50%) of the Retention Reduction to Purchase Price (the “Deferred Purchase Price Payment”). Subject to Section 5.15(b), the Deferred Purchase Price Payment, if payable as determined by Purchaser’s calculation of Trailing Total Volume or subsequently by agreement of the Parties or determination of the Independent Accountant, shall be paid to Seller within three (3) Business Days following the first to occur of (i) Purchaser’s determination that such amount is owed, (ii) such time as the Parties resolve any discrepancies or disagreements related thereto in accordance with this Section 5.15(a), or (iii) following the date of final determination by the Independent Accountant. If and only if the Retention Reduction to Purchase Price is greater than zero, Purchaser shall not take any action or omit to take any action with the intent of reducing the Trailing Total Volume during the twelve (12) months following the Initial Closing.
3.Binding Effect. This Amendment will be binding upon, inure to the benefit of, and be enforceable by, the parties to this Amendment and their respective successors and permitted assigns.
