Neither Seller nor its affiliates relies on Buyer or any of its representatives with respect to any tax issues or tax treatment of the Merger or the other transactions contemplated in this Agreement.

 

Seller and its affiliates shall cooperate in the preparation, execution and filing of all tax returns, questionnaires, applications or other documents regarding any real property transfer or gains, sales, use, transfer, value-added, stock transfer and stamp taxes, and transfer, recording, registration and other fees and similar taxes which become payable in connection with the Merger that are required or permitted to be filed on or before the Merger effective time. Seller shall pay, without reimbursement from the Company or Buyer, any such taxes or fees imposed on it by any governmental entity or authority (or for which Seller’s stockholders are primarily liable), which are due for any period prior to the effective time of the Merger and/or which becomes payable in connection with the Merger and Seller shall indemnify and hold harmless Buyer and the Company with respect to any such taxes.”

 

 
 

 

(b) Section 1(e) of the Agreement is hereby amended by adding the following sentence to immediately follow the last sentence in such Section 1(e):

(c) Pursuant to Section 3(a) of the Agreement, Buyer and Seller agree that the Closing will be delayed to such date when all Third Party Consents have been obtained; provided, however, that, if such Third Party Consents have not been obtain by the End Date (as defined in Section 24(b) of this Agreement), then the Buyer and Seller shall close on April 19, 2021 the transactions contemplated by this Agreement as a share exchange described in Section 1(b) of this Agreement.

4. Governing Law.
