The obligations and restrictions of the Stockholder as set forth in this Section 1 are defined as the “Lock-Up”.
1.1. “Transfer” means the direct or indirect, offer for sale, sale, pledge, hypothecation, transfer, assignment or other disposition of (or to enter into any transaction or device that is designed to, or could be expected to, result in the sale, pledge, hypothecation, transfer, assignment or other disposition at any time) (including, without limitation, by operation of law), or the entry into any swap or other derivatives transaction that transfers to another, in whole or in part, any of the economic benefits or risks of ownership of the Shares, whether any such transaction is to be settled by delivery of Shares or other securities, in cash or otherwise.
1.2. Notwithstanding the above Section 1, a Transfer of Shares as a bona fide gift, by will or intestacy or to a family member or trust for the benefit of a family member (for purposes of this Agreement, “family member” means any relationship by blood, marriage or adoption, not more remote than first cousin); or transfers of Shares to a charity or educational institution; provided that in the case of any transfer pursuant to the foregoing clauses any such transfer shall not involve a disposition for value and each transferee shall sign and deliver to the Company a form of this Agreement and a Signature Page hereof prior to such transfer being completed.
1.3. Any attempted Transfer of Shares by any Stockholder which is not in compliance with the Lock-Up or which is in violation of the terms of this Agreement shall be void ab initio.
2. Right to Reject Dispositions. In furtherance of the foregoing, Monaker and its transfer agent are hereby authorized (i) to decline to make any transfer of securities if such transfer would constitute a violation or breach of this Agreement and (ii) to imprint on any certificate representing Shares beneficially owned by a Stockholder (or any book-entry relating to such Shares) with a legend describing the restrictions contained herein.
3. Power and Authority. Each party hereto respectively represents and warrants that such party has full power and authority to enter into this Agreement and that, upon request of the Company, each Stockholder will execute any additional documents necessary in connection with the enforcement hereof.
4. No Assignment; Binding Nature. No party may assign this Agreement in whole or in part, without the written consent of the other parties. This Agreement shall be binding upon the parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns.
5.1. Severability of Invalid Provision. If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, the other provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect. Any provision of this Agreement held invalid or unenforceable only in part or degree will remain in full force and effect to the extent not held invalid or unenforceable.
5.2. Specific Performance. The parties agree that the covenants and obligations contained in this Agreement relate to special, unique and extraordinary matters and that a violation of any of the terms hereof or thereof would cause irreparable injury in an amount which would be impossible to estimate or determine and for which any remedy at law would be inadequate. As such, the parties agree that if either party fails or refuses to fulfill any of its obligations under this Agreement, then the other party shall have the remedy of specific performance, which remedy shall be cumulative and nonexclusive and shall be in addition to any other rights and remedies otherwise available under any other contract or at law or in equity and to which such party might be entitled. The Stockholder therefore agrees that, in the event of any such breach or threatened breach of this Agreement or the terms and conditions hereof by the Stockholder, the Company shall be entitled, in addition to all other available remedies, to an injunction restraining any breach or threatened breach, without the necessity of showing economic loss and without any bond or other security being required.

Any judicial proceeding brought by or any party regarding any dispute arising out of this Agreement or any matter related hereto may be brought in the courts of the State of Florida and, by execution and delivery of this Agreement, each party hereby submits to the jurisdiction of such courts. EACH PARTY HEREBY WAIVES ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN CONNECTION WITH ANY MATTER CONTESTED UNDER, OR ARISING OUT OF, THIS AGREEMENT.
