|Re:||Amended & Restated Letter Agreement|
Ladies and Gentlemen:
Reference is made to the Amended and Restated Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of August 8, 2020, by and among Majesco Limited, a public limited company domiciled in India (the “Principal Stockholder”), which is the majority shareholder of Majesco, a California corporation (the “Company”), the Company, Magic Intermediate, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Parent”), and Magic Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned Subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Sub”) (as the same may be amended or otherwise modified in accordance with its terms after the date hereof, the “Merger Agreement”), providing, among other things, for the merger of the Company with and into Merger Sub with the Company being the survivor in the merger (the “Merger”).
To induce and as a condition to Parent and Merger Sub’s willingness to enter into the Merger Agreement, Principal Stockholder (in its capacity as such) has agreed to enter into a Support Agreement (as the same may be amended or otherwise modified in accordance with its terms after the date hereof, the “Support Agreement”), dated as of July 20, 2020 and as amended on August 8, 2020, by and among Principal Stockholder, the Company, Parent and Merger Sub pursuant to which Principal Stockholder is obligated, among other things, to organize a postal ballot process for the approval by the members of Principal Stockholder of the divestment of Principal Stockholder’s entire share of the Company common stock pursuant to the Merger.
To induce and as a condition to the Company’s willingness to enter into the Merger Agreement, Principal Stockholder (in its capacity as such) has agreed to enter into this letter agreement (the “Letter Agreement”).
Pursuant to this Letter Agreement and applicable foreign exchange laws which the Principal Stockholder is subject to (but only for so long as the Principal Stockholder is so subject), the Principal Stockholder hereby agrees to, and shall, reimburse, indemnify and hold harmless the Company from and against any and all costs or disbursements incurred by the Company under Section 9.5(b)(iv) or Section 9.6 (but solely as it relates to Section 9.5(b)(iv)) of the Merger Agreement as a result of (A) a termination of the Merger Agreement by Parent pursuant to Section 9.3(d) [Principal Stockholder Failure to Hold Principal Stockholder Postal Ballot] of the Merger Agreement and (B) following the execution and delivery of the Merger Agreement and prior to the termination of the Merger Agreement pursuant to Section 9.3(d) thereof, a bona fide Principal Stockholder Acquisition Proposal (as defined in the Merger Agreement) has been made to the Principal Stockholder and (C) within twelve (12) months after such termination, the Principal Stockholder shall have entered into a definitive transaction agreement with respect to such Principal Stockholder Acquisition Proposal (with “50%” being substituted in lieu of “20%” in each instance thereof for purposes of Section 9.5(b)(iv) of the Merger Agreement). For the avoidance of doubt, it is clarified that the Principal Stockholder shall be obligated to reimburse, indemnify and hold harmless the Company as above, only if all three conditions set out at (A), (B) and (C) above are fulfilled. If any regulatory approval is required in connection with any payments required to be made to the Company under this Agreement, the Principal Stockholder shall use all best efforts to secure any such regulatory approval that may be required for making any payments under this Agreement.

In the event that any proceeding should be brought in equity to enforce the provisions of this Letter Agreement, no party shall allege, and each party hereby waives the defense, that there is an adequate remedy at law.

The arbitration hearing shall be held as promptly as possible, and in any event, within twelve months after the filing of the arbitration demand with the AAA.

In case any one or more of the provisions contained in this Letter Agreement or any application thereof shall be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions contained herein and other application thereof shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby.
