| ||13.1 || |
As a general and overall limitation of the EMPLOYEES liability to the COMPANY and AFFILIATES, the COMPANY agrees that the EMPLOYEE shall not be liable, for any reason except as set forth below, to the COMPANY or any of its AFFILIATES for an amount in excess of the amount provided in the next sentence hereof. Accordingly, as and for their sole remedy against the EMPLOYEE, the COMPANY agrees that for any claim or cause of action that the COMPANY or any of its AFFILIATES may have against the EMPLOYEE, whether past or future, their sole remedy shall be the forfeiture of the EMPLOYEEs salary, bonus and other compensation (but not the equity grant under Section 6.1 hereof, which shall not be subject to forfeiture) received by the EMPLOYEE during the COMPANYs fiscal year in which the EMPLOYEEs termination occurred plus subsequently accruing compensation. In this regard, the COMPANY agrees, to the extent permitted by applicable law, to indemnify the EMPLOYEE from and against any liability the EMPLOYEE may have in excess of that provided in the immediately preceding sentence (i) hereunder or (ii) for any other claim the COMPANY or any of its AFFILIATES may have against the EMPLOYEE. However, nothing in this Section 13 shall limit the EMPLOYEEs liability to the COMPANY or any of its AFFILIATES or provide the EMPLOYEE any indemnity (i) for any act by the EMPLOYEE involving theft, fraud or embezzlement against the COMPANY or any of its AFFILIATES, (ii) in respect of any equitable remedy against the EMPLOYEE, (iii) in respect of any agreement listed on Schedule I of the Old Employment Agreement (as defined in that separate Termination Agreement among IHF Capital, Inc., IHF Holdings, Inc., SUBSIDIARY and EMPLOYEE, dated September 27, 1999 (the Termination Agreement)) or any agreement heretofore or hereafter entered into by the EMPLOYEE after the date of the Old Employment Agreement, (iv) in respect of any claim or cause of action asserted by the COMPANY or any of its AFFILIATES as a counterclaim (to the extent of any liability the COMPANY or any of its AFFILIATES may have by reason of the EMPLOYEE claim in question) or as a set off, or (v) under Section 7, 9.3 or 10 of this Agreement or under the Non-Competition Agreement (as defined in the First Amended and Restated Master Transaction Agreement dated as of October 12, 1994 among ICON Health & Fitness, Inc. and the other parties thereto (the Master Transaction Agreement)); provided, however, that the aggregate of the liability of the EMPLOYEE to the COMPANY or any of its AFFILIATES, under Section 7, 9.3 or 10 of this Agreement or to the COMPANY, any of its AFFILIATES, IHF Capital, Inc. or any of its AFFILIATES (as defined in the Old Employment Agreement) under the Non-Competition Agreement and of the liability of the EMPLOYEE to IHF Capital, Inc. or any of its AFFILIATES (as so defined) in respect of claims subject to the $18,000,000 limits set forth in the third to last sentence of Section 10.3.1.1 of the Master Transaction Agreement, shall not exceed $1,240,000.
