Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the Parties agree that, from and after the Closing and until such time as NBA Sponsor Beneficially Owns less than 1,535,000 shares of Common Stock, NBA Sponsor shall have the right to nominate one (1) Director to the Board (the “NBA Director”), including after all of the members of the Initial Board cease to serve as Directors. For the avoidance of doubt and subject to the rules of the NYSE, NBA Sponsor’s right to nominate one (1) Director to the Board under this Section 2.02 shall not be transferable. NBA Sponsor shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to cause the Sponsor Designee to comply with any qualification requirements for Directors set forth in the Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws, and all policies, procedures, processes, codes, rules, standards and guidelines of the Company applicable to Directors; provided, however, that the Company understands and agrees that the Sponsor Designee may disclose information he or she obtains while serving as a member of the Board to NBA Sponsor and NBA Sponsor agrees to maintain the confidentiality of such information. The NBA Director shall initially be Michael Liebowitz.

Each Stockholder entitled to vote for the election of Directors hereby agrees to vote all shares of Common Stock held by such Stockholder in favor of electing the NBA Director to the Board in accordance with Section 2.02, and to take all other necessary action in order to ensure that the composition of the Board is as set forth in Sections 2.01 and 2.02. For the avoidance of doubt, this Agreement, including this Section 2.04, shall not restrict any Stockholder from transferring any of its Common Stock as otherwise permitted by applicable law.

Section 2.06 Chairperson of the Board. Thomas S. Huseby shall serve as Chairperson of the Board for so long as he is a Director; provided that, in the event Thomas S. Huseby is no longer a Director, Eric D. Stonestrom shall serve as Chairperson of the Board for so long as he is a Director; provided further that, in the event each of Thomas S. Huseby and Eric D. Stonestrom is no longer a Director, the successor Chairperson of the Board shall be elected as provided in the Bylaws.
Section 2.07 Classified Board. The Company represents and warrants that immediately prior to the execution and delivery hereof the Board is divided into three classes, with the Directors serving staggered three-year terms as follows:

As promptly as reasonably practicable following the Closing, the Company shall enter into an indemnification agreement with each Director, each on substantially the same terms entered into with, and based on the same customary and reasonable form provided to, the other Directors. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable Law, the Company shall not amend, alter or repeal any right to indemnification, advancement of expenses or exculpation benefiting any Director nominated pursuant to this Agreement, as and to the extent consistent with applicable Law, contained in the Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws (except to the extent such amendment or alteration permits the Company to provide broader rights to indemnification, advancement of expenses or exculpation). The Company shall (a) purchase directors’ and officers’ liability insurance in an amount determined by the Board to be reasonable and customary and (b) for so long as a Director nominated pursuant to this Article II serves as a Director of the Company, maintain such coverage with respect to such Director and shall take all actions necessary to extend such coverage for a period of not less than six years from any removal or resignation of such Director, in respect of any act or omission occurring at or prior to such event.
Section 2.09 Reimbursement of Expenses. The Company shall reimburse the Directors for all reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with their attendance at meetings of the Board and any committees thereof, including travel, lodging and meal expenses.
Section 2.10 Restrictions on Other Agreements. No Stockholder shall grant any proxy and no Party shall enter into or agree to be bound by any voting trust, agreement or arrangement of any kind with any person if and to the extent the terms thereof conflict with the provisions of this Agreement.

(b) If a Stockholder is an individual, such Stockholder has the legal capacity to enter into this Agreement and perform his obligations hereunder.
(c) This Agreement constitutes a valid and binding obligation of such Stockholder enforceable in accordance with its terms, except as enforcement may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or similar Laws affecting creditors’ rights generally and by general principles of equity (regardless of whether considered in a proceeding in equity or at Law).
Section 3.02 No Consent. Except as provided in this Agreement, no consent, approval or authorization of, or designation, declaration or filing with, any Governmental Authority or other person on the part of such Stockholder is required in connection with the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement, except where the failure to obtain such consents, approvals, authorizations or to make such designations, declarations or filings would not materially interfere with a such Stockholder’s ability to perform his or its obligations under to this Agreement. If such Stockholder is an individual, no consent of such Stockholder’s spouse is necessary under any “community property” or other Laws for the execution and delivery of this Agreement or the performance of such Stockholder’s obligations hereunder.
Section 3.03 No Conflicts; Litigation. Neither the execution and delivery of this Agreement, nor the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, nor compliance with the terms hereof, will, (a) if such Stockholder is a legal entity, conflict with or violate any provision of the organizational documents of such Stockholder or (b) violate, conflict with or result in a breach of, or constitute a default (with or without notice or lapse of time or both) under any provision of, any trust agreement, loan or credit agreement, note, bond, mortgage, indenture, lease or other agreement, instrument, permit, concession, franchise, license, judgment, order, notice, decree, statute, law, ordinance, rule or regulation applicable to such Stockholder or to such Stockholder’s property or assets, except, in the case of this clause (b), that would not reasonably be expected to impair, individually or in the aggregate, such Stockholder’s ability to fulfill its obligations under this Agreement. As of the date of this Agreement, there is no Action pending or, to the knowledge of such Stockholder, threatened, against such Stockholder or any of such Stockholder’s Affiliates or any of their respective assets or properties that would materially interfere with such Stockholder’s ability to perform his or its obligations under this Agreement or that would reasonably be expected to prevent, enjoin, alter or delay any of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.
Section 4.01 Termination. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, but subject to the early termination of any provision as a result of an amendment to this Agreement agreed to by the Parties as provided under Section 4.04, this Agreement (other than Article I, the last sentence of Section 2.08 (which, for the avoidance of doubt, shall terminate as provided therein) and this Article IV) shall terminate at such time as NBA Sponsor Beneficially Owns less than 1,535,000 shares of Common Stock and, with respect to any other Stockholder, this Agreement shall terminate (solely with respect to such Stockholder and not with respect to any other Parties) at such time as such Stockholder no longer holds any shares of Common Stock.
Section 4.02 No Agreement as Director or Officer. Each Stockholder is signing this Agreement solely in his or its capacity as a stockholder of the Company. No Stockholder makes any agreement or understanding in this Agreement in such Stockholder’s capacity (or in the capacity of any Affiliate, partner or employee of such Stockholder) as a Director or officer of the Company. Nothing in this Agreement will limit or affect any actions or omissions taken by a Stockholder (or any Affiliate, partner or employee of such Stockholder) in his capacity as a Director or officer of the Company, and no actions or omissions taken in such Stockholder’s capacity (or in the capacity of any Affiliate, partner or employee of such Stockholder) as such shall be deemed a breach of this Agreement. Nothing in this Agreement will be construed to prohibit, limit or restrict a Stockholder (or any Affiliate, partner or employee of such Stockholder) from exercising his fiduciary duties as a Director or officer of the Company to the Company or its stockholders.
Section 4.03 Notices.

All Actions arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby shall be heard and determined exclusively in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware; provided, that if jurisdiction is not then available in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware, then any such legal Action may be brought in any federal court located in the State of Delaware or any other Delaware state court. The Parties hereby (a) irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the aforesaid courts for themselves and with respect to their respective properties for the purpose of any Action arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby brought by any Party, and (b) agree not to commence any Action relating thereto except in the courts described above in Delaware, other than Actions in any court of competent jurisdiction to enforce any judgment, decree or award rendered by any such court in Delaware as described herein. Each of the Parties further agrees, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Law, that notice as provided in this Agreement shall constitute sufficient service of process and the Parties further waive any argument that such service is insufficient. Each of the Parties hereby irrevocably and unconditionally waives, and agrees not to assert, by way of motion or as a defense, counterclaim or otherwise, in any Action arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby, (a) any claim that it is not personally subject to the jurisdiction of the courts in Delaware as described herein for any reason, (b) that it or its property is exempt or immune from jurisdiction of any such court or from any legal process commenced in such courts (whether through service of notice, attachment prior to judgment, attachment in aid of execution of judgment, execution of judgment or otherwise) and (c) that (i) the Action in any such court is brought in an inconvenient forum, (ii) the venue of such Action is improper or (iii) this Agreement, or the subject matter hereof, may not be enforced in or by such courts.
Section 4.08 Waiver of Jury Trial. Each of the Parties hereby waives, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Law, any right it may have to a trial by jury with respect to any Action arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby. Each of the Parties (a) certifies that no Representative, agent or attorney of any other Party has represented, expressly or otherwise, that such other Party would not, in the event of any Action, seek to enforce that foregoing waiver and (b) acknowledges that it and the other Party have been induced to enter into this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby, as applicable, by, among other things, the mutual waivers and certifications in this Agreement.
Section 4.09 Specific Performance. The Parties acknowledge and agree that irreparable damage would occur if any provision of this Agreement were not performed in accordance with the terms hereof. Each Stockholder agrees with the Company (and only with the Company) that, in the event of any breach or threatened breach by any other Party of any covenant or obligation contained in this Agreement, the Company shall be entitled to seek an injunction or injunctions to prevent breaches of this Agreement or to enforce specifically the performance of the terms and provisions hereof in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware or, if that court does not have jurisdiction, any federal court located in the State of Delaware or any other Delaware state court without proof of actual damages or otherwise, in addition to any other remedy to which they are entitled at law or in equity as expressly permitted in this Agreement. The Parties agree that, in the event of any breach or threatened breach by any Party of Section 2.02 or Section 2.03 of this Agreement, NBA Sponsor or the Company, as the case may be, shall be entitled to seek an injunction or injunctions to prevent such breach or to enforce specifically the performance of the terms and provisions of Section 2.02 or Section 2.03 of this Agreement in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware or, if that court does not have jurisdiction, any federal court located in the State of Delaware or any other Delaware state court without proof of actual damages or otherwise, in addition to any other remedy to which such Party is entitled at law or in equity as expressly permitted in this Agreement. Each Stockholder hereby further agrees with the Company (and only with the Company) to waive (a) any defense in any action for specific performance that a remedy at law would be adequate and (b) any requirement under any Law to post security or a bond as a prerequisite to obtaining equitable relief.
Section 4.10 Entire Agreement; Assignment. This Agreement sets forth the entire understanding of the Parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior agreements and undertakings, both written and oral, among the Parties, or any of them, with respect to the subject matter hereof. This Agreement shall not be assigned (whether pursuant to a merger, by operation of Law or otherwise) by any Party without the prior express written consent of the other Parties.
Section 4.11 Severability. If any term or other provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced by any rule of law, or public policy, all other conditions and provisions of this Agreement shall nevertheless remain in full force and effect so long as the economic or legal substance of the transactions contemplated hereby is not affected in any manner materially adverse to any Party. Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced, the Parties shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect the original intent of the Parties as closely as possible in a mutually acceptable manner in order that transactions contemplated hereby be consummated as originally contemplated to the fullest extent possible.
Section 4.12 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed and delivered (including by facsimile or portable document format (pdf) transmission) in one or more counterparts, and by the different Parties in separate counterparts, each of which when executed shall be deemed to be an original but all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same agreement.
Section 4.13 No Recourse. This Agreement may only be enforced against, and any claim or cause of action that may be based upon, arise out of or relate to this Agreement, or the negotiation, execution or performance of this Agreement, the transactions contemplated hereby or the subject matter hereof may only be made against the Parties and no past, present or future Affiliate, director, officer, employee, incorporator, member, manager, partner, shareholder, agent, attorney or representative of any Party or any past, present or future Affiliate, director, officer, employee, incorporator, member, manager, partner, stockholder, agent, attorney or representative of any of the foregoing (each, a “Non-Recourse Party”) shall have any liability for any obligations or liabilities of the Parties or for any claim based on, in respect of, or by reason of, the transactions contemplated hereby.
