Other than as set forth in the Registration Statement, the Pricing Disclosure Package and the Prospectus, there are no legal or governmental proceedings, actions, suits, inquiries or investigations pending to which the Company or any of the Subsidiaries is a party or of which any property of the Company or any of the Subsidiaries is the subject which, if determined adversely to the Company or the Subsidiary, individually or in the aggregate, would have or would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect, or would prevent or impair the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, or which are required to be described in the Registration Statement, the Pricing Disclosure Package and the Prospectus; and, to the best of the Companys knowledge, no such proceedings, actions, suits, inquiries or investigations are threatened or contemplated by governmental authorities or others.
(xviii) Possession of Licenses and Permits. The Company and each Subsidiary possesses all permits, licenses, approvals, consents and other authorizations (collectively, Permits) issued by the appropriate federal, state, local or foreign regulatory agencies or bodies necessary to conduct the businesses now operated by them; the Company and each Subsidiary is in compliance with the terms and conditions of all such Permits and all of the Permits are valid and in full force and effect, except, in each case, where the failure so to comply or where the invalidity of such Permits or the failure of such Permits to be in full force and effect, individually or in the aggregate, would not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect; and neither the Company nor any Subsidiary has received any notice of proceedings relating to the revocation or material modification of any such Permits.
(xix) Possession of Intellectual Property. The Company and each Subsidiary owns or possesses the right to use all inventions, patent applications, patents, trademarks (both registered and unregistered), trade names, service names, service marks, copyrights, trade secrets and other proprietary information described in the Registration Statement, the Pricing Disclosure Package and the Prospectus as being owned or licensed by any of them or which is necessary for the conduct of, or material to, any of their respective businesses (collectively, the Intellectual Property), and the Company is unaware of any claim to the contrary or any challenge by any other person to the rights of the Company or any Subsidiary with respect to the Intellectual Property; neither the Company nor any Subsidiary to the Companys knowledge has infringed, or is infringing, the intellectual property of a third party, and neither the Company nor any Subsidiary has received notice of a claim by a third party to the contrary.
(xx) Absence of Labor Disputes. No material labor dispute with the employees of the Company or the Subsidiaries exists, or, to the knowledge of the Company, is imminent. The Company is not aware of any existing or imminent labor disturbance by the employees of any of its or any Subsidiarys principal suppliers, manufacturers, customers or contractors, which, individually or in the aggregate, would reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect.
(xxi) Insurance. The Company and each Subsidiary is insured by insurers of recognized financial responsibility against such losses and risks and in such amounts as are prudent and customary in the businesses in which they are engaged, including, but not limited to, policies covering real and personal property owned or leased by the Company and each Subsidiary against theft, damage, destruction, acts of vandalism and earthquakes; neither the Company nor any Subsidiary has been refused any insurance coverage sought or applied for; and the Company has no reason to believe that either it or any Subsidiary will not be able to renew its existing insurance coverage as and when such coverage expires or to obtain similar coverage from similar insurers as may be necessary to continue its business at a cost that would not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.
